You stumped me. Howard's shop was next to Coonie's Liquors, wasn't it? Big plate glass windows I think. To the right was Harlow's and then another "beer joint"---name escapes me---then next was a clothing store---Bakers????---then Ritters Liquor store, then Army goods store, then Taylor's Poolroom, then Blaine Clark's poolroom and then Pennington and Rennix(later The Dollar Store). That is my recollection of 1st Street. Help me out here.

At one point I thought the old skating rink was an aerobic place, then maybe some sort of music place-not sure?? Have no idea what the space is used for now....
I remember the Universit Inn-in later years is that where the police recruits stayed?

Btw-I had Mrs. Marshall for 1st grade and was good friends with her daugher Wendy-even beyond college-I remember Mrs. Roberts-but didn't have her for a teacher. I also know John Hicks. I worked with his mom after I graduated college-really super nice lady...she talked about John often but not sure what he's up to now...last I heard he lived in Lexington. His dad did pass away several years ago...
I'm thinking you and I must have gone to school together??
yes i knew wendy marshall..she came to one of my birthday parties when i was a kid..yeah we definitely went to kit carson at the same time..i started kindergarten in mrs. browns class in the fall of 1978..do you know michelle marcum or diana howard? aaron turner?

CGK: You are starting to "tax" my old brain. I believe you are right on the location of Howard's barber shop. There was one next to Coonie's just as I described before. Now, whose shop was it? I remember seeing Earl Howard "loafing" in there, and that is why I was thinking it was Howard's. Some of these names and places are starting to "galm up" the brain cells. Who was the owner of the Golden Rule---I called Louie? Keep up the good work. Woodrow McBride, I remember the name, but I cannot get it together right now; but I will before the day is out---I hope. More later.

CBK: I just got some "intel". You are right---it was Woodrow's and then became Sam's Place owned by Sam Billings and later Margaret. Harlow had the place next door and later Big Elmer had it and called it City Restaurant. Now here's another riddle: Harlan Eddington owned one of those places around there at one time---which one and where? I remember him and that he had one but I do not recall the details.

Now, Remember When, you better check your memory. You are tttoooo young to make this mistake. Mr. & Mrs. Robinson owned THE DAIRY BAR on Big Hill Avenue. His name was Ed and her name was Vessie.They lived on North St. Ed's brothers and sister were Dick, Ben, M.M."Doc", Jessie Robinson(sister), Susie Clouse and Delphia Walters(her husband, Jay, was the lockmaster at Boonesboro). Their father was Dr. M.M. Robinson, whose farm was subdivided to make Greenway Subdivision(generally Barnes Mill, Magnolia, Meadowlark & Bobolink and where the new First Baptist Church is now located). I am 110% certain---do not challenge that---and you can see why. Dairy Cheer was on Water St. where Pally's is now located. The Halsteads owned it. By the way, the owner of Pally's Liquors has some kinship to the Robinsons, and he lives on Summit Street.
You are so right I got the name wrong,how do you remember all these things about so many people?

I have always gotten around even as a teenager; and I had a lot of people who have been good to me over the years---maybe better than I deserved. I have always tried to keep my word at all cost, and maybe that has made a difference. Besides, I guess that I am basically nosey, but I hate to admit it. Knowledge is good.
