    I was born in Our Lady of the Way Hospital in Martin and grew up about 7 miles away from there in Garrett before moving to Lexington, Columbus and San Francisco. Well, I never thought I would say this, but the National Championship Trophy crossed the big bridge over Garrett on KY-80 yesterday on its way from Martin to Hazard! If people had only known it was going through, I bet they would have lined both sides of the whole length of the big bridge and cheered as they went over.
