Those sure were the good ole days. I remember the June Dairy Day Parade. I always dreamed of twirling a baton in the parade. Never did. I remember Mom and Dad parking in front of the Liberty Grill and talking to everyone on Saturday night. I remember that I loved the chili dogs and chocolate milkshakes from the Grill. I remember going to the walk-in. It only cost a quarter. I remember the dime store, Sue Lynn's dress shop and the corner store. Dr. Adams office, the Chevrolet Garage, Walgreen Drug Store, Nell's Florist and Brown's Restaurant. The Louisville Store, Baldwin's Mens Shop, Phillips Furniture, Sinclair Service Station, Western Auto on the end of Kings Department Store, Hoskins Dollar Store,
Lawson's Beauty Shop, Wolford Electric, WKDO in the Wolford Building, the skating rink, Beards Tire and Implement, Sweeney and Wesley with the Health Dept upstairs, Wesley Drug, Johnny Murphy Law offices, the bowling alley, True's pool hall, Dr. Lester's dentist office, Jim Dandy Market, P&P Grocery, the Laundrymat, Dukes, the Dairy Palace, the Rainbow, Artis Tarter's Feed Mill, the Drive in, King and Lane, Hoby's, Watson Lumber, Griffin & Wesley Ford, Chester Bernard's old jailhouse, Chester Huff picking up pennies, Pos Atwood, uncle Josh Wesley, Wilkinson General Store..then Wilkinson Book Store, the Casey News office beside the Grill owned and operated by Fred Burkhart, 1960 the big fight on the court house square between Billy Mills and Pallas Wesley, Liberty High School merger with Casey County High school 1969, the old soc hops (one of the first bands came from Corbin..I remember the lead singer was Ivan Syler and bass guitar was Vitto Little. Hey, do you remember the old donkey ball games? I have never laughed so hard!

Video Fantastic.
I can't remember the name, but I loved the Sport Shop where you could go get a T-shirt and have your name put on the back of it; right here in Liberty. Now you have to go somewhere else.
Yes, I worked at Video Fantastic when I was a senior in high school.

does anyone remember Goldie Race had a little store somewhere around Nell's flower shop. May have been the same space before Nell's was there. Also there used to be a big Western Auto close to Sweeney Dr. office. That is where my first bike came from. I can still remember the smell when you opened the door to Dr. office and health dept. and remember the dread as you walked up the steps to get a shot.

My kids have grandparents (3 out of 4 anyway) but these grandparents need step up. Quit playing favorites. There I said it and I hope you are reading it. You know who you are.

Races' dime store? and you sure brought back a memory when you mentioned that unique smell when you opened the door and the dread going up those steps. Small pox shots , olio drops on sugar cubes and iron vitamins in chocolate squares yech!

Wouldn't we all just love to go back to those days.Nothing will ever be like them. There was so much fun back then. Even highschool was a blast in the years of 1968-1971.Wish I could relive it.

Looking, to answer your question about the big fight in 1960...there were a lot of people betting that no one man could take Billy Mills to jail without the use of a blackjack or anything. Pallas was a Deputy Sheriff so he took off his gun, badge and blackjack. They went at it hand to hand. Pallas took Billy to jail by himself. They both ended up good friends. But, that the way things were back then. No guns, no knives...just pure strength...man to man.

Im not sure what she drove but I do remember her. I worked at the nursing home a long time ago and she was in there.. I never will forget the story they told me because I worked in dietary. When all the patients came in the dining room to eat and after they got finished we had to go and clean up the dishes...well Emma would wait afterwards and start taking up the dishes thinking she was still in her restaurant...The day I started they warned me not to get to close to her because she would knock you out thinking you was stealing her dishes..lol...needless to say I stayed at my distance till she got finished...lol...anyways I graduated in 1989..lord almost 20 yrs ago...times change huh?

The mail trucks had benches in back so people could ride back to town with them. you had to ride back home with someone going home from work. Used to ride to town and get one of those little cokes with paper straw. Going to town was fun.
