Sonia Outlaw Clark fills Michael in on Brownsville, TN and the difference between Outlaws and in-laws? Outlaws are wanted. She grew up on a cotton farm outside Brownsville. National wildlife place has 11 species of catfish, including the mad tomcat—2 inches long. Sonia loves to fish and eat catfish, frahed. Team name: the Tomcats. Tommy Delk played there. Helen's BarBQ is famous, featured in Southern Living and other magazines; she smokes it out back. Also "The Mindfield" sculpture, huge, in progress, by Billy Tripp, the story of his life in metal. We moved and restored Flag Grove one-room schoolhouse (1889) to center of town; Tina Turner went there. Free summer concerts, some on the porch of Sleepy John Estes home.
