I remember Mr. Hoover as a 16 year old just getting their license he scared me to death. One night he stopped me at the foot of Huff Mountain intersection, just doing a traffic check, of course he shined the light in my face and all in the car. He asked for my license and registration I had the license, but what I gave him for the registration was the insurance card I was so scared. He looked at it and said, "Yep you are all legal, now you mind the speed limit going through town," Believe me there was no way I was going to go more than 25 m.ph. I had for gotten about him, and then there was another town police officer, a young skinny guy don't remember his name, but he didn't stay long, but he liked to check everyone's license and registration. Now a million years later I can see that was a good thing. But then I wonder if the town officers do that now.

<quoted text> There used to be Cook Ford Sales, run by Bob Crouch and Bill Lugar, and Herman Hopkins had a grocery store next door,- he cut the best steaks you ever ate. His brother Hoot used to work at Piggly Wiggly. Ivan Daniels ran a car parts store next to his mother's little general store. Just up the road was Jack Ritchie's Transfer and Furniture (where the dentist is now located, Breeden's Furniture Gallery was at the intersection. Fields Furniture and TV was at the other end of town.
Doc Shannon had his office in the middle of town,
and so was Otis Cook's car lot. Donny Cook operated a used car lot where Toler's Funeral Home is now located.
You always got good fries and hamburgers at the Oceana Drive In, with a cool beer to wash it down.
Johnny Basconi had a hardware store, right next to "Old" Tom Evans funeral home, where Fred Dyke worked.
There were some really great people, and nice stores. Kind of makes you wish for the good old days. Can anyone remember old Mr Hoover being the town's lone policeman ? He took no guff from anyone, and was prone to shoot first and ask questions later, so no one crossed him lol.
Then there was Fred Lokant's Law Office where Kissel's Optometrists are now located. Mr Lokant was the epitome of the kind southern lawyer, and he knew land law better than anyone else in the county.

There use to be a barber shop across the steet in front of McDonalds and a service station. The service station sat where Otis Cook put in his used car sales. There was a theatre there too and in the 50s Jr. Laxton had a used car sales in the same vicinity in the vacant lot past the theatre toward the bridge.

Hoover was there 1955/56/57 ?? He handcuffed me and one other for shooting firecrackers and took us to our parents. Then there was Phillip Neal and Earl Prichard.
