Lady Adrianna,
The directions that you have posted need to be revised. Upon turning onto
Main Street from US 460 there are 5 stoplights not 3 that will reach you to
the Middle School.
1) Main and Industrial
2) Main and Elliott
3) Main and South Main Plaza
4) Main and Country Club drive
5) Main and Airport Road.
I tell you this now in hopes that it can be corrected in time for the next
Acorn. As a fellow Black Diamond resident of 12 years, I felt that it was my
duty to help.

Hope that all goes well for you

In Service,

Lady Elizabeth of Rosewood (a.k.a.Shrewlet)
