During the Soiree last week, I noticed that William Whitner was getting some extra special attention. I imagine even a sturdy statue needs a cleaning now and then. Mr. Whitner, the engineer responsible for bringing electricity to Anderson, stands in the Anderson County courthouse square.

After quickly Googling the Whitner statue, I stumbled upon a possible answer to my long-held question: What is William Whitner looking at? At this site, it claims the statute is looking up at the electric lights. Apropos, no?
