Buddrfli... thanks for the info. Do you have any idea when Sara may have passed away? Do you know if there is a date on the tombstone? As I recall, she was born in 1902 and Jim was born in 1899 and passed in 1984.
Well, I went thru Everton back in the spring on the way to Muncie! I stopped by the cemetery behind the big church there in Everton. There is not a death date on Sara Stedham's tombstone! I guess Elaine Isaacs Helton down there in Middlesboro, KY must have just buried her down there!

Does anyone know?

Why not start a topic about the Class of 64? I bet people will share some memories. Great idea to share with your daughter.

Charlie Bath will definitely be missed by many. My thoughts and prayers are with his family and many friends our lives are better for having known him.

Broke N Vile, Broke N Vile, let me list crap -

- location, central to nowhere. US 52 is tore up,
deer infested, curvey death ride.

- no jobs, unless you sell drugs, work minimum wage, or are related/sleep (both?) with someone.

- prices, hyper inflated, due to isolation. CVS, Arbys, IGA. need i go on? bastards. all of you.

- weekend traffic. in summertime, you are the tri-state's whore. piss in lake, go back to their jobs

And a merry Christmas to you, HoosierHell. Sounds like you need a little cheer. Or a good thump on the melon. Whichever comes first.

Let me give a different perspective:

Brookville, Brookville, let me give thoughts:

-murder is still a big deal
-people still stop for funeral processions
-Pizza Pete and Rosenbergers continue to offer business after a trillion years
-the air is clean and crisp
-it still takes only 5 minutes to get through town
-we don't lock our doors
-neither do our neighbors
-kids can play outside after dark
-no bus fumes
-no riots
-low crime rate and the crime there is stays within the same bunch of no-good-nicks most of the time
-people still help each other
-roads still lead out of town if you don't like it

See what YOU can add to this POSITIVE list. Wanna be an azzhole? Make your own list. This one's positive.

You are so right. I have lived here all my life and would never move to any other place.
Our town has changed over the last few years and not for the better. I think this is due to people moving in from cities and are not used to small town America.

Have just read some of the remembers on this thread. Can't believe that Mr. Mills is listed as one of those most missed. He pitted parents against one another. He chose favorites when it came to sports. He did his "thing" for himself, not for the children or the school where he taught.

It pays to get out into the world, out of Brookville.

Buddrifli,
In '68, when I met Elaine she and her grandparents (Sara and Jim) were still mourning his death. At age 17, I couldn't comprehend such a loss and as with all youngesters, only two years before (1966 when Jimmy died) seemed like such a long time.
So, they didn't talk about him very much as I remember. I never saw a photo or anything of him. I visited Elaine and her grandparents there in Blooming Grove in the summer of '69. As I remember, there is one flashing caution light sort of in a curve. They lived on down a ways on a road off to the right.
The last I heard (over 21 years ago), Elaine was living in Middlesboro, Ky. She married a guy she met in college at Williamsburg. She probably retired from the Bell County school system.
Thanks for the info about Jimmy ...... I never knew the nick name either.. Howdy Doody!
I was a pall berer at his funeral He really looked like Howdy Doody
