Ratliff Boon seem to be 'fitting in' well with the crowd of people of Warrick County at Boonville during the community wide event called "Square Flare" - - 'Barbecue Cook Off' and all.
It pleases Ratliff very well - that profits of the "Square Flare" will be buying more Christmas Decorations for the Courthouse Square as promised by the Boonville Merchants.
