Yes Helen Black owned Stover's grocery. Sadly, Miss Helen passed away recently.
i Loved Mrs. Hellen and Mr.Ray, my girls loved going to visit them when they were little, she was a good Lady and treated everyone with respect and we all respected her, she sure helped me out alot and i never forgot it either, i always called and spoke to her and thanked her for being there for me when i needed advice and someone to just talk with.

I miss people (or should I say an Angel) like Mrs. Klemp. When I was to receive nothing for Christmas one yr. it was 1961, I opened my door on chrismas morning to more presents than I've seen in my life. Mrs. Klemp was a wonderful woman. I liked her children Bobby, Mary, and Ray. Hope they are doing well.Does anyone know where Bobby is located. I did stop by Mrs. Klemps house several months before she passed away and thanked her for her kindness. She stated to me,"Some people just need a little help once in a while." Love her and Memories like that keep me going. I have in return, helped many people and I think it is because people like her planted that seed in me.

What a wonderful thread. I read it all and all of the comments brought back incredible memories for me. I haven't lived (or even visited much) in Caruthersville since I graduated from high school - but, the memories are there. Some of my memories: Baskin's for a hot dog and cherry coke, of course the Gem and the Stadium, all of these you've all already mentioned - the loop and Knox's...etc. I remember all the little diners my mother worked in - some of their names slip past me now. Johnson's Cafe downtown? Chaffin's Hotel Restaurant (the hotel that burned), the little ice cream place across from the high school, Lee Rood - oil heaters, drafty rental houses all over C'ville. Interesting how one's mind works. I couldn't wait to graduate and leave and now I can look back and see the beauty. Oh, I remember the centennial, too. My uncle grew this huge beard for it.
OK, this will test age and memory. Does anyone remember one of our English teachers (cannot remember her name - 1963 or 1964) had a group of us stand around a table with our hands flat on the table and fingers touching...and it levitated? This really happened. I can't remember the context of us doing that in English class - but....

The smell of cotton gins in the fall - the apple and pecan trees in our back yard - picking dew berries out on a country road ditch - fireworks with my uncles - crosssing the ferry to go to reelfoot (goochs or rays) -

OK maybe the Chamber could set something up like where every other weekend the stores could stay open to at least 9pm. You could get venders to set up stands for stuff like hotdogs, popcorn, snow cones and other stands set up selling different types of merchandise. There are lots of things you can do, heck horseshoe tournaments down at the riverfront. A walk night for everyone....I could go on and on with things that could be done. You just have to have something to get people out of the house.
