Giant Spartan

It is no surprise there is an abundance of fiberglass in this town [where F.A.S.T. is based]. There is a pheasant in the lot of Dealer Direct Auto in Sparta. There is a Spartan at the school at Wisconsin and Montgomery St. Most likely not fiberglass, but statue in the park near the school on Montgomery St. "The Zone" has three sports balls on top of the entrance on the way out to F.A.S.T. Just before reaching F.A.S.T. we spotted an eagle on a globe.
