And shops downtown.......Penney's, Gansel's, Mode-O'-Day, Value Dress Shop, Woolworth's, and out on Main.....TG&Y (you could park in their parking lot and watch the drive-in movie for free!), and K-Mart. Used to be a grocery store where AutoZone is now.

heck we used to drive in the exit. they had an employee sitting there to stop you, all you had to do was give him a beer and they would let you in for free.

Johnny's was the best. Small eatery. Packed at lunch. You could watch him make your hamburger. Started off with a ball of ground beef in the shape of a ping pong ball. He would smash it on the grill until it was flat as a pancake. He would also dab a napkin with a bit of grease and rub it on top of the bun to give it a shiny glaze. It was great. In fact, I know of inmates in the old county jail who would crave the smell of Johnny's hamburgers since it was only a half block away.
