    As a young child, I remember daddy telling me when the light was on, it would mean there was a prisoner inside the jail., He knew I had a daily routine of visiting my downtown businesses. II was told specifically not to check on the light! lol So when I was driving age, that was one of our nightly visits, to pass the jail, to check out the lighting situation, Living in a small town… so much fun.
