LOL, I have to agree, I worked there for a short time in the late 70's and there was a fun crew to work with.

I am sitting here in Powhatan, Virginia. I am on vacation this week and am thinking of my old days at Marshall. Brent Blume worked for awhile here at the Village Inn on Grace Street in Richmond. He also worked at the River City Diner. Is he back in Huntington? I seem to have lost contact. I would love to hear from anybody that knows me.

I miss the 50% vacancy rate of both residents and businesses, the drug problem, the slumlords, the lazy cops, the flooding viaducts, the unfair business taxes, the potholed streets, the high unemployment rate, the massive amount of bars, fast food places, and pawn shops, and the overall white trash appeal, just like it was last week.....

WHAT I MISS ABOUT HUNTINGTON, WV
I moved to the Huntington area in 1976. Although I live in Huntington, there are some things I miss about Huntington.
I miss the chocalate cake with vanilla icing from Big Bear bakery, the smell of freshly made donuts from Ward's while walking Fourth Avenue. I miss how great Dwight's Kingburger was at 4 am although it tasted like cardboard for lunch. I miss the pepporoni's under the cheese of Delpa's Pizza in Proctorville. I miss The Hot Dog Special at Frank's Sandwich shop and fries and blue cheese of Julio's. I miss buying an out of town paper at Nick's News, cassettes at National Record Mart, 45 rpm's at Davidson's, and import albums at Opus One and Sight N Sounds.
I miss the Huntington Blizzard, The Huntington Cubs, Huck's Herd, and the Marshall footlball Herd playing for 1-AA Championships. I miss a hot summer day at Olmpic Pool. I miss Georgie from The Copa, Blondie from Davis' Place, fstfights at Verb's, happy hour buffet's at Robby's, one armed Harry Hill at the after hours bar Old Coachman's Club on Fifth Street, comedy night at The Old Library, drinking ice teas from mason jars at Bojangles, Ali at Rockers,and Becky's jean shorts and John Black's cackle at the old Jake's. I miss the music ofFoxwagon, James Murphy and Zachariah, and Menlo Park. I miss Billy Ray and The Players packing the Ragtime Lounge full of hot women every weekend. I miss drinking beer on Big Bear parking lot after a long night of work.
I'll always remember drinking Stroh's Beer on the porch listening to the Cincinnati Reds on WGNT. Also, there was Bob Miller in The Morning and Trivia on WGNT, Gary "Music" Miller on WKEE, Dr. Demento, King Buscuit Four on the fm radio. Of course, Mr Cartoon and Beeper on TV 3 and Ernie Salvatore writing about Mary ex Model's Derby Day bet.
I don't miss paying a dime to cross the 6th street bridge, the long traffic on the bridge or the many years we had to wait for The East End Bridge. I don't miss Dave Peyton writing for The Herald-Dispatch. I don't miss Cruise Ave but do miss Chi-Chis.
Huntington has grown bigger with Pullman Square, Wal-Marts, and consiladated high schools. I miss the freedom of the safety of being out at night and being able to walk downtown without bums begging for money. I'm still in Huntington and still love Huntington, a part of me still longs for the innocence of Huntington of the 70's and 80's. Was is Huntington or just the time period

my mom and i went to dr ricketts! I think they had 3 or 4 waiting rooms where you would wait to move to the next one and finally to his office! You would go early in the morning and sign up and may half to wait the entire day if they were really busy. I think his receptionist name was Marion?? There was a drug store on the corner that had a lunch counter i think. Huntington was special in those days!!

i have recently moved to huntington. i find these post fascinating. It would have been awesome to have been here back in the day. My wife and I purchased an older home and are trying to revive it.....but, as i look around I see that this city has little hope left. Pharmaceuticals and other various drugs are to blame...and government passing out handouts to anyone unwilling to work... i read each and every post here. I wish I could have been here then and had some good times witrh y'all.
