I miss walking everywhere we went, Clarks Drive In, The corner store with penny candy, riding our bikes, bunking parties,not being afraid to walk or ride our bikes - the safe feeling, First Baptist Church and gas for 29 cents a gallon at Burgess Acuff's.

I miss the busy intersection at Truman and 13th when the Brown Shoe Co. got off work. Racing the 1/4 mile at the end of South Ward. Hanging out at Knox's playing the pinball machines.

I miss watching the softball games at the old Brown Shoe - Truman Blvd was a gravel street - the water tower at 13th and Juliet (Truman) - my initials were up there several times - all of the neighborhood grocery stores - could sell bottles to them for a penny - most of em would trade you candy for bottles - Green Woods - first kiss was out there - back seat of a 59 rambler station wagon - sneaking up on parkers at west side school

I miss not having to leave Caruthersville to shop.
Its sad to live here all your life and slowly over time watch a once Norman Rockwell portrait community slowly die.

I miss playing outside after dark at any hour. and walking the whole neighborhood trick-or-treating and getting homemade treats and not worring about checking it. You could just eat it on the spot. The older people were sweet and nice and usually invited you into their home to get your treat. Playing ball with the hole neighberhood on the vacant lot across from my house and no foul mouth talking, just kids having fun. boys and girls.

Walkling down ward and all the shops being open and having stuff outside. The furniture stores where you could buy your furniture instead of renting. The Star Station, IGA. Magic Mart with our our friendly carry out helper Dan T. Helped everyone just to be nice and christian like.

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.
