I had completely forgot about here. She was such a nice lady. Always willing to be patient with every student. Ms Allen?... Well, she she was not so much so. However, she could snap her fingers louder than any human I have ever knows.

My last conversation with here was when was running their second location on Short street back in the mid-80s. By that time she had mellowd to the point we could laugh and toss around old memories.

God, I really miss these people. While I was certainly not a model student I think they would be proud of how I turned out.

Here's a sampling of sorry excuses for teachers: Mike Elkin, Judy Gabbard (the one at Berea Community, not the Judy Gabbard who taught at Fruit Jar), Larry Daughtery, Jan Hamilton, Glenda Boggs (maybe, just maybe the worst teacher in the history of mankind), and a few other that escapes my memory/wrath at the moment.

Ok then, remember when it wasn't so gay? Is that more to your liking? Probably.

A change of pace and a story to keep the thread alive.

My family and I emigrated to Berea from England in 1969, and I started at the new BCHS in mid October.

In the middle of November, Bruce Howe (my host), and I were walking to class, when three came up to us. BTW, I do remember who they where, but won't name them. A lot folks would ask my siblings and I to talk so they could hear our British accent. Anyway back to the story, the three girls came up to me and asked 'Do you celebrate Thanksgiving in England' to which I replied 'Yes, we give thanks the pilgrims left'. Left them speechless.

Mrs. Davis was a sterling example of a public school educator, she taught me at Knapp Hall and BCHS. Scott Woodie and I deserved to be horse whipped for some of our childish behavior(pranks) displayed at Knapp Hall, Mrs. Davis did discipline us with love and care but never gave up on us. Most teachers today would have cast us a side as "lost causes". Good thing I did'nt grow up here in Texas cause we sure will "horse whip" a child for showing disrespect. If they haven't learned by adult how to act we incarcerate them or kill them, don't be actin' a fool in Texas cause "prissen" is big "bidness".

I could not agree any more. Kindest woman educator I had ever had the pleasure of knowing. And I am a better person for having had her in school.

It was the best place to ever grow up and get in trouble. It was Slate Lick, Bicks hardware, the pool. Lots of family and a lot of spankings. I loved getting a log roll candy at the dairy queen and i hated when they put in the new exit. But, my aunt sure loved it; I miss Jimbo and Laura but, the rest of the family stays around. Boone Tavern is worth the trip the college is beautiful. But, what I truly miss is running threw my papas hills and chasing chickens. I am a farm girl can never take that away-born and raised to be on a horse and a tractor. I'm my dads daughter and proud of it. Berea is beautiful. Had my worse wippen ever there and still couldn't wait to go back.

Yes, but they were separate accidents. Feller was killed (along with a Deaton boy) on the curve right past the entrance to Indian Ft. Theatre's parking lot. The Hancock girl was killed out on Red Lick Road.

Hardee's with my feller, shopping at Heck's or TG and Y, groceries from Piggly Wiggly, Superior or Foodtown, a sandwich for as little as sixty cents from Fast Eddie's (on college square), miniature golf behind the old Stuckey's (where Taco Bell is now), B and B Grocery on College Square, old movies being shown where the Berea Art Gallery is now (beside the library), and just outside of Berea Settle's Boot Country -- where you could get much more than boots! LOL
I remember Settles Boot Country, I was pre-teen and dreamed of marrying my future husband on the big fancy steps out front! My Dad was friends with Buddy's Settles and we shopped there a lot. Remember the cars he had inside the bldg. One was Elvis Presley's . Heck to me he was a big star himself, until I grew up and REALIZED!!!

The first purse and matching wallet I ever bought myself, was from there. I thought I was something! Paid with my own hard earned $$, if I remember correctly,$43.00, that was a lot of tobbacco setting, chopping, cutting, housing, stripping, lime hauling, bottle feeding calves every morning before school, hard earned money!

Didn't mean to bore anyone, just a few memories from 25+ years ago.

While I remember working at Bonded, under, Brad Proctor, I don't recall selling a single condom. Transit under Kenneth Webb, where I also worked, did however. "Wet or Dry" was the question we always asked. I did not know what the ment until Kenneth Webb told me. Gawd I was green...

I remember, Harold Lewis, Elmer (COBB) Lewis, BoBo, Corbin Allen, Raymond Carter, Jerry Cheeks and a more. Was good times back then.
