There is an old saying about how “every cloud has a silver lining.” Someone in Goodwater cared enough to paint a mural on a blank white wall. Just down the road, in Sylacauga, Alabama, one finds a more elaborate wall mural. This mural is one of the bright spots in Goodwater. The library, down the street and around the corner, next to the post office, is relatively new, clean, attractive and well run. Unfortunately no one passing through sees it.
