Years ago my wife and I were passing through Nezperce, and an event was taking place. I believe it was called Drug Bust Days or something similar. I am curious, does this event still take place? Its not currently listed in the Idaho festival guide. If not, did it take place at one time or another? If it did or does now exist, can someone offer some specifics, particulars and history as to how it came about, how long it ran or has been running and etcetera. We were in route at the time and only stopped for a short time to eat at a burger stand. Mid to late eighties would have been the time frame, I think. I vision that Nezperce is still the small friendly rural community that it was in my younger years (60s and 70s) when I played in the surrounding mountains and river valleys. Rick

I'm desperate to find services for my 24-year old disabled/autistic daughter. Any suggestions in/around Syracuse or upstate NY to live for best services? ANYWHERE in the US would be under consideration. She needs therapies, socialization, we need respite care, future living accommodations for her, etc...

Last year, I and my brother returned to OK for a nostalgia trip. It was quite short and I am returning this August. My grandparents, Dr. Archie Dougan and Sukie, lived there from 1939 until their deaths in 1954 & 1955.
I also spent a few months there in about 1944. I was in 5th grade at that time. Had a good friend, Patsy Ring. My oldest brother, David, attended school throughout his high school years in the early 1940's.
I see that Granddad's old office building, next to the bank, has been torn down.
I hope to spend a few hours in Carmen on August 28 and would enjoy visiting with anyone about the long ago days.

When I saw the name of the site hosting this blog about Greenville, I had to laugh. PODUNK... a more apt description for Greenville was never found for it is, indeed, PODUNK. That being said, I rather love to live in Podunk, ummm erm, I mean Greenville. We are smack in the middle between Pittsburg and Cleveland, so we never suffer for urban life if we seek it. Greenville is what my son (and I) would call an "elephant's graveyard." The town is populated for the most part by retirees and the elderly. As steel left the area, so did our young ones in search of better opportunities elsewhere. Greenville, to me, is the best of both worlds. We are near enough to major cities to find all the culture and nightlife we desire, yet we reside in a quiet, beautiful, rather serene setting.

I read today about the 13 year old girl struck by a truck from behind in broad daylight while walking along, not crossing, the road. According to the article in the Daily Times, the trucks driver was not at fault.
As the parent of a 12 year old who bicycles, I want more information. Did the injured girl really do something phenomenally idiotic, or was the driver related to a public official? Or is it open season on pedestrians? (Translate pedestrians as OUR KIDS). If a motorist struck a slow-moving vehicle from behind, obviously he would be at fault. Please people, slow down around kids, give them a little strip at the edge of your lawn left unobstructed so they aren't forced to walk on busy roads, and please please stop automatically blaming the injured child.

My husband and I were driving by Mt. Moriah yesturday and saw the sign about Babe Adams. We had never noticed it there before. We went back to take a closer look.
It made me very courious because my maiden name is Adams, and my family came from this general area.
I googled Charles Babe Adams. It said that he was born in Indiana, and died in Maryland. Nothing was mentioned about living in Mt. Moriah, or being burried there.
If he did actually live in Mt. Moriah, when would that have been, and were exactly is he burried?

My Dad was stationed at the CCC Barracks in 1940 at the age of 15. Reviewing a few photos last evening , I noticed he posted the names of the other young men who were there with him. Does anyone know how I can find out more about the projects they worked on, etc. ?.

Thank you.

My maiden name was Frances Karp. I am 86 years old and
spent my childhood in Newington. I have many happy memories of growing up there, where my father
Abe Karp had the general store (remains of which I believe are still there). I remembr Evalina Lee ( now Evans, I think,
Wilene and Reba Morgan, FLorence Virginia Evans (these are maiden names) , the Downing boys and many, many more from school. I would love to hear from anyone who
went to school in Newington before the school burned as well as all others. I recently reconnected through the computer with Burdelle Harrison..I hadn't seen or spoken with her for 75 years. It has been a great treat for me to
see her again.

If you remember me, or that era, drop a line and we'll talk.

Cons about living in Corydon.....if you're not from here...the people in the clicks are nasty to you. You have no privacy....and anything you do or don't do is changed to make stories sound good. Alot of people here don't have a life and haven't even been out of Iowa so they have to make up stories to make their lives sound interesting.

I am originally from Wilton ND. Leonard Backman is my dad and Benton Backman, my grandfather. We were just talking here at work, about our home towns and it made me curious, so I got on line. I would love to be living in ND. I'm starting to hate it here in the Seattle area. There are way too many people and every square inch of land, they have to build on. The traffic is terrible. When we were back to Wilton, I couldn't get over, there was no traffic, you could find open spaces, it was clean, people were friendly. However, the only thing better here, is our coffee. I love North Dakota and eventually, even my son and daughter-in-law, would love to live there.

Recently, our town of Dyer, Indiana was listed in the top 100 most desireable places to live in the US. That was such a compliment! We were proud but there is definitely more to come. With the Town Council working to better the community in several aspects and the many community members giving a helping hand with their expertise, I am sure that Dyer, Indiana will be evolving from the diamond in the rough to the brilliant gem that will glimmer and glisten with the many facets it has to offer! I'm pleased with the progress but even more, am anxious for the future! Come on over, decide where you want to build your new house, have lunch at one of the local restaurants, get a fun dessert at your choice of several ice cream parlors, then walk it off with a nice stroll through a park! Take a look at us now and then check back with us to enjoy the progess because we're up and coming!!!!

I am originally from Bath now living in Florida. As a child I summered at the White Spot and then spent many summer days at Popham as a teenager.

I moved away for many years but vacations always brought me back to Maine and Popham.

Five years ago I was married at the Fort to my old high school steady. What a trip it was.

Popham is my favorite place in the world because it holds so many precious memories and what's not to love about the view. It's gorgeous there.

I was recently in Maine and the first place I went to was Popham, dining at Spinney's, and then walking the beach and smelling the good old salt air. It don't get much better than that.

This is one of the most beautiful places I have visited. In July 2004 I attended a PTK retreat in the area and was impressed by the wild flowers everywhere-especially in the meadow around the visitor center. We saw elk, a tremendous waterfall, and it's so quiet there you can hear the moose sloshing in marshes while grazing even if you can't see them. There was no phone service (this means wilderness) at that time so we drove up to a high point west of the junction to get cell phone reception. This is a very special place on earth.

Lower Tyrone is a great place to live, if somepeople would mind their own business. I've lived here 33 years, raised five kids and a bunch of foster kids here, and I have enjoyed every minute of it, well, almost. There are some people here who think that they are better than every one else,and that they have the right to tell you how to live your life. Thank God, these people are few and far between. My family enjoys the peace and quiet and the fresh air that this location affords us, and we plan on staying here until we die. It's a great place to raise kids, and my 14 grandchildren just love it. If only some people would mind their own business and remember God created everyone equal. Don't look down your nose on others just because they may not have all that you do. Material things don't really matter. Family does!!!!!! God bless everyone.

Roswell outwardly seems the peaceful, small Southwest town, but after living here for 12 years, i have come to realize that the amount of violence in this town far outdoes any positive point it may have. For not being a large city or metropolis, the shootings and violence that happen, that are never covered in the news, makes this a undesireable place to live.If a family is looking for all the attributes of a great place to live, i.e, good education system, lack of violence, affordable housing, FOR the average income (low per national average) look elsewhere.....

Evidently, I was so enthusiastic about a space to write about my hometown, Nichols, Florida that I got carried away as the characters delete, so did my typing speed and my vivid colorful view of the most happiest days of my life; I look back and say if it were just a portion like it once was, maybe everyone would share my view. But all is not the same; we have different values and morales; but have you ever wondered where they came from? I truthfully say Nichols. I am a bit accentric, if there is any truth to the old
African Proverb "It takes a whole village to raise a child"The Nichols Community had the young lives in it's hand. Racial prejudice may have existed, I don't remember incidents, we were children of different colors riding our bikes to the old Commersary, sat on a bannester and drank a soda, raced on the blacktop to the dirt and shell road or Saturday evening while mama shopped at the
infamous Durdin's Grocery, while Kenny and Barbara Mathis and I played on the bench.

Does anyone have a picture of William Wallace LOCKWOOD's "round house" which was located Southwest part of Winfield, KS. This house was one of Winfield's show places for many years. I don't have dates when the "round house" was build or when it burned down. William Wallace LOCKWOOD lived in Winfield between 1900 to about 1924. The information I have came form W. W. LOCKWOOD's obituary found at Cowley Co. Historical Museum in Winfield.

I would appreciate any information about this house.
I have never blogged before so I'm not sure except how it works. In case, my email is lrubowj@hotmail.com

Salome! Only lived there a year, now I am still homesick for this place,the people, the history and the wildness.

I miss you all and everything, bring me back, I wanted it to be the place I could call Salome home for the time I have left to be alive.
You are lucky people, the wildlife is lucky-nobody seemed to make it a sport to kill just to kill it
Be happy little town, I love you still after 6 years.

With Minton Rd - Emerson Drive & Palm Bay Rd. intersection being the most heavily used for access in and out of the Heavily populated and growing area..(N.W. - P.B.)..It appears ludicrous to increase Palm Bay Rd west bound lanes into this bottleneck intersection. With little hope of seeing in the near future, the much needed overdue Palm Bay by-Pass completion, I suspect and predict a serious problem in this area, when and if evacuation is needed due to more hurricanes we will get.

My dad was born in Norwich, North Dakota May 08, 1908 to John & Margaret Gilbert. My dad's name was Paul R. Gilbert. He passed away in Orland, California January 3, 1993. He was born around the same time as Dora Blocker. Eugenia Stubbins whose dad was the banker also came to California. Her and her mother were close friends of my parents.
I would like to hear from someone that lives in Norwich. When my dad left Norwich around 1930 there were 68 in population.
I learned a lot about Norwich when my dad had Alzheimers.

I used to live in Berlin I did but, I don't anymore. I first became a member of the oldest existing fife and drum corps in the United States in 1973. The Berlin Fife and Drum Corps organized in 1782 is celebrating its 225th anniversery in 2007. 'The Frosty Sons of Thunder' will be at the annual Berlin Whiskey Rebellion Celebration on September 29 and 30, 2007. The Grand Feasture Parade will commence at 2:00 P.M. on September 29, 2007. Come out and be part of our illustrious heritage as we march toward our 250th anniversery. I guarantee you won't be disappointed. More information is available at www.berlinpa.com.

My first visit to Winchester Bay was a few years back. My mother and I were on an outing and decided to stop. We found a darling little place that was a 'tea and sandwich' shop. Later, my mom wanted to buy a motel there. We aren't rich, so we found this little dump that required a lot of fix up. It is now open as the Salmon Harbor Landing, but only has 6 rooms (see them at salmonharborlanding.com).

Because of this, I have made many trips there. It is a quiet town (too small for some) with fishing and ATVs being the biggest attractions. I have most enjoyed the Elk reserve (about 10 miles away) and the Butterfly Pavillion (partly because of the free blueberries in July). I have enjoyed walks to the harbor and the restaurants we've eaten at. We ended up getting married in a nearby lighthouse and used a local old one room schoolhouse for the reception.

So, the town has been good to me. It is a reasonable place to stay on the coast, quiet and enjoyable.

Hi, I would like some info on the house I purchased ten years ago. The previous owners lived here for 30 years, and I would like to know who owned it before them. The house is a little over 100 years old, and I am remodeling and found the original wood floors and I started thinking about when the house was new, and what had been added on. If someone could tell me where to find this info, it would be awesome. The internet only takes you so far before you have to pay for research, so if there is a "free" way, I would like to know. Thanks a bunch.

I am going to be moving to Jacksonville in a couple of months when my husband returns from Iraq, and we need an apartment. I live in Florida, so I can't go look at the apartments myself right now. Can anyone recommend a complex from PERSONAL EXPERIENCE?

I have been a part of the San Angelo business community since 1978. We have many of the advantages of city living without the traffic jam's. The arts are becoming an important part of our community along with good old West Texas living. San Angelo is a sportsman's dream, hunting, fishing along with any outdoor type recreation one can desire. The cost of living, great weather, award winning schools, shopping and some of the best steaks in the world makes Angelo a great city to work and retire. I'm new at this blogging but from a person who has been in and around Angelo for nearly 30 years I invite all to experience the friendly open arms policy of the San Angelo, Tom Green County people. My wife and I own a monument co. that has been here since 1899 serving most of Texas and were proud to call San Angelo our home town. Graniteman

I have lived here all of my 50+ yrs and all and all I love this little town, only 5 traffic lights and not too much traffic on the Highways most days!
We recently got a SMALL Walmart and now we need some good places to eat, its a shame that we have to drive all the way to Cookeville just to get a good meal, other than burgers and Pizza!
All tho crime is everywhere our little town don't usaully have too many serious types of crimes going on, drugs and all that comes with that is our major problem!
Not much to do here, if you're into the fast pace life style; church gatherings,kids ball games, water sports, horse rides, four wheeler,hunting and fishing thats about all there is to do around here.
You can always count on your neighbors to toss their hand up as they pass by you or stop and offer a helping hand when needed , after all isn't that what makes this County special, the people whom you share it with! God Bless

This may not be appropriate for a blog, but I am searching for what might be called a bed and breakfast (breakfast at a nearby restaurant) where we stayed several years ago while doing a craft show. It was a single room for two people, with a bath, that had an entrance from the main street of the town, with the owner family living upstairs. We enjoyed our stay there so much but cannot remember the name of the town - it may have been Canton or Preston - definitely in that area. We would love to go there again.. I was going to take pictures, but my camera had a permanent breakdown. Any help would be appreciated. Thank you

Follow up to post regarding Haley Remy:

Okay, now I remember! Janet is Alice's older sister and Haley was her child. Alice's daughter was Amy. Regardless, I have pictures of Haley at her Grandparent's house, Mary and Ross Johnson. I figure someone might like to have a copy of them.

If you know the Johnsons, please have them contact Karen Laster at texas2254 AT yahoo.com. Thanks so much!

Hello to everyone in Cement, OK! I'm trying to find information on how Haley Remy died in Cement, OK back in 2005. If you have any info on her death, which also included the death of her child, please email me as soon as you can. My daughter and Haley were friends as little girls down in Harlingen. I found Haley's obit but there were no details on how she died. I'd also like to be able to contact her mother, Janet Magee. I knew Janet when she went by Alice Johnson. Haley was about 4 years old then. Any help would be appreciated.

Hey we are coming for the class reunions the first part of August. Are there going to be places in town to park an RV for the weekend? With few hotel rooms, we thought we'd bring an RV to stay in and walk to all the activities if it is at all possible. We are looking forward to seeing old friends and just hangning out!

Thanks

I live in Arizona and my distant relatives came from Pineville, Kentucky. I am wondering if there are any Brookings left around there. My great grandmother and grandfather lived in town and owned/ ran the local drugstore there.

Harrisburg Pennsylvania is a city on the rise. While most cities in the Northeast have experienced stagnant growth, Harrisburg PA is consider the #4 city to live in based on a recent Salary.com report. Being the Pennsylvania?s capital Harrisburg has benefited from state investment in the IT and biotechnology industry. Several state funded technology companies located in Harrisburg have received national recognition including http://www.listrak.com, http://www.webpagefx.com and http://www.versatilemobile.com.

Can someone please tell me where all the tax dollars are going in this town? We have no police, fire departments, public recreation, and we have been reassessed and are paying even MORE taxes. I can't afford the taxes in this town, and if you drive around, you will see many homes up for sale, presumably for the same reason. Is there any accountability?

I have a large concern to the fact that Dawson county is covered in filth. Its only a concern because there are no trash cans anywhere along the highways, nor in the parks.
There is also a large problem with stray animals. We should really clean up and get together an d build an animal shelter to fight against homeless animals, and animal abuse. With all the strays around, our animals are able to get illnesses and catch dieses that the strays bring around.
Over all, it would benefit everyone if we cleaned up the town, it will fight the mosquitoes a lot, it will reduce flies, and help cut down on the summer's heat.
