I don't know if you will get this, but thought i would give it a try. Referring to the old thread about Jaxx and the Senator and all..just wondered if you knew Frank Stafford, aka Frank Alt.
I have been trying to find out any info about his passing 5 yrs ago. Hope this is not a bother. Thanks for reading :)

olenyrose, I never met Frank Stafford, but knew who he was. I played for a year or so in the Jimbo Manion Band (Group Therapy). Jimbo should be able to answer any questions regarding Frank's passing (if he's willing).Jimbo has a facebook page. I recommend trying to contact him there. Hope this helps.

<quoted text>I went to HS with Paul Fiscella. He and his younger sister are attorneys. His younger brothers own the home building company VEI---with developments all over the area! Saw Glenn Grasso the last time about 14 yrs ago at Deep Creek Marina. Anyone remember Tim Knight? How about Mike Galloway (Frog) who has since passed away.
I went to Hidenwood Elementary with Timothy knight, but do not remember him at Ferguson.
Paul Fiscella was one of the first with long hair and he wore baggy blue jeans every day with a t-shirt - most cool in 8th grade. He had a couple a catch phrases that he used repeatedly, but I can't remember what they were.
Mike Gallaway sounds familiar, but do not think thatI knew him well.

I remember the gas station across from Ferguson (the one that became a foosball parlor and thenSubway Station)as a Sinclair. I remember ol' Dino the Dino on the sign up to the mid 60s. At the corner of Shoe Lane was the Shell station. I remember sitting in Mrs. Crippen's algebra class and staring at the rotating Shell sign for the whole 55 minutes -- it was far more interesting than polynomials and quadratic equations. Yeah, I wound up taking Algebra again in summer school.

And yes, Mrs. Crippen was married to Gil Crippen who won a national teacher of the year award teaching Geography at Menchville High. I delivered the Daily Press to them at their apartment in Dutch Village (Logan Place) around 69-70. I think he retired in 1999.

I've really enjoyed reading all the posts, but I wish there was some way that people could post old photos they might have of all the places being talked about.

That Shakey's was a regular hangout for my circle of friends circa 1975.
I went there early 70's, before busing and I went to Warwick high. I was in Chorus and we would go after concerts. I think they were my first pizza's

I believe the burger place at Harpersville & Jefferson was at first, a Carolls and later a Champs burgers. The Burger Chef that I remember was by the Anchor Drive In.

My brothers and I would stop by that Highs when walking home from watching the American Legion baseball games played at Deer Park. I'd eat a whole pint of sherbert by the time I got home.

Um, I'm not the one building shrines to my glory days, am I? What has he done lately? He doesn't even rate washed up "Dancing with the Stars" or "Celebrity Apprentice" status!

So who can remember the restaurant that was across Jefferson from Carrols? Seems like I remember it looked like an old 2 story house and I think the owners actually lived upstairs. I think I also remember that the husband murdered his wife in the late 70s and that was the end of that restaurant. Does any of this sound familiar?

I actually designed the sign for the Subway Station as a school project for Mr.Smith he was my DECA teacher and owned the Subway Station in front of Ferguson,I believe it opened in either 1977 or 1978, is it still there?

guess I am wrong about the name of the burger place but that was my first fast food. I was at the Beaconsdale pool all summer and we would walk over there for lunch alot.

My dad always went to the ball games at deer park. I went to Deer Park school, when it was a regular elementary school. I watched Tire city be built, I think I was in 7th grade.

Anchor drive In, My dad worked in the NN fire department and he could get in free, so we went alot. loved the playground there. It was a treat to go. Life was very simple then.
