    To the editor:

    In 1875 the Kentucky Derby was first run. There have been 134 winners since then.

    On the 100th anniversary of the Derby, Foolish Pleasure won.

    We used to have a sign stating Foolish Pleasure won the Derby. Where has it gone?

    Foolish Pleasure, one of 134 winners, was from Williston.

    Where is the sign? I have asked the city two or three times when it was going to be put up and the answer I received was “soon.”
