Also there was Poe's Dept. Store, Sulers pool hall, Cox's cafejoe petes, the dime store, van adkins, i think there was a ben franklin store also. then across the river there was crown food mart and the breaker drive in also. played a lot of cenepede games there.
Oh yes, those were the days. Joe Pete's, Sterlings, Kings Department Store (Where the cafe is now),across the street where the library is was Van Atkins, next door was Ben Franklin's ten cent store (instead of "dime"), where Counter Concepts is now Otasco was th ere ran by J.LA. Jackson. We had a wonderful town in those days. If we could get together and build this town again, and parents raised their children as we were raised we wouldn't have to have as many prisons and families would be together to enjoy the life of peace and tranquillity.
We were raised in the best of times, sure, many thought it was rough-but in the long run not any rougher than things are today. People were raised to handle things better, to respect themselves and others. Today it is all "ME, ME, ME". And so many standing around for a handout. Back in those days we were not afraid to work for minimum wage, we were not afraid of hard work, and sure didn't think we were susposed to start a marriage with what it took our parents twenty-five to gain, or that our parents owed it to us to support us from womb to tomb.

It's odd to see how much has changed in Pocahontas. When we were young we never thought Pocahontas would ever change so much. I still call Pocahontas my home town and I haven't lived there in years. But I love to drive by the old places we use to hang out and remember the "Good Old Days".
