I was at a meeting last week with several people I work with. We were discussing the Rosa and several other spots in Middlesboro. For many years, cars pulled off Highway 25E and watched the show at the Rosa from the side of the road. One fellow said his mother made he and his brothers hide their eyes as they drove by in the the 1970’s!
