Saw a very odd sight when I was driving through Avinger On Wednesday Aug 26th 2009. Someone's house I noticed had a confederate flag flying, whilst on a seperate polr the American flag was at half mast and upside down. Weird!

I heard a story from an old timer there... back in the 50s or 60s, the ceo of chrysler was pursuing the possibility of installing a plant, but it got shot down for one reason or another.

Funny. I was a lil worried about that. I was offered a job in the area and didnt want to have any problems. So my research led me to ur comment. Now im a lil more concerned.

My family lived in Avinger until i was 2. Dag got a job as a fireman with the Kansas Southernrailroad and moved to Shreveport Louisians in 1948. My happy memories are of the very large family weekend gatherings at Mamma Simmons old house. The children would some times go the short walk to Felkers general store for a sweet treat or a puckle out of the barrel. Always felt comnected to the nice towns folk.
