I know that to persons born or raised in the area of LaVergne the pronunciation would be second-nature and this question will appear to be silly. I live close to Ypsilanti, MI (pronounced ip-sa-lan-ti). My question, then, is, What is the correct pronunciation of LaVergne?

I lived in Lexington (and then in Purcell) for approximately 8 months in the late 1980s. For whatever my reason, I was thinking about those times and those people today. I even "googled" an old boyfriend -- only to learn that both his stepmother (who was always very kind to me) and his Aunt (who I had only met once) had died and that he had apparently (re)married.

I have only good memories of Lexington, and the time my then toddler daughter and I spent in Oklahoma. And only good wishes for the people I met there.

I just thought I'd say that.

My girlfriend and I stopped into the Sandhills Curiosity Shop on Sheb Wooley Avenue in Eric on May 21, 2007 thinking it was a thrift shop. Well, nothing is for sale and the building is the theatre for Harley and Annabelle Russell, the Mediocre Music Makers in the Redneck Capitol of America, Erick, Oklahoma! At first my girlfriend thought Harley and Annabelle could be serial killers and reminded me that no one knew where we were! Well, Harley and Annabelle sang us a song and we both felt better. I played a song I had written after taking a swig from Harley's bottle of Jack Daniels. He was kind enough to accompany me with his electric guitar. We were in a rush and wished we could have stayed longer. Anyone going to Erick should not miss this wonderful attraction. Take a look at my website to see their photo, http://www.JayMc.com

I've lived in Bethany for four years now, moved here to "retire and relax" from Kansas City, Missouri, where I'd lived my whole life.
At first I was facinated by the small town atmosphere, amazed by how slowly life moved along, impressed with the friendly people.
Then I started noticing things; lots of vacant properties, both residential and commercial, all the "good" things crowded around the I 35 exit while other areas of the City go empty, antiquated City services, tiny outdoor "city dog pound", horrible tasting tap water, all above-ground power and phone lines etc.
I'm SO bored of this place now!!! I wish Bethany would come into the 21st Century (or even the 20th!!) Kids and teenagers are out of control, a LOT of teen drinking, smoking and drugging, nowhere for kids to 'hang out' safely etc. Shopping at Walmart is the major entertainment!
One man has moved to town and started trying to change things, thank God!

First and foremost Good luck to anyone who decides to reside in Keyes. I moved into Bonita Ranch and 2 months later my car was broken into. In addition, my neighbor had his car broken into 3 times one of which I heard everything at 3am. Purchased a 1606 sq. ft. home for 369 and now the home value have utterly dropped.

Now there are so many used homes in Bonita Ranch that are trying to sell and still Bright Homes have not completed all its phases. I think I am next to put a FSBO sign up. Good luck to all who decides to reside in this town. I do not recommend it at all.

My name is Caroline Kennedy Shepard. My family has been in Canada for several generations. My great great grandmother was Caroline Cook Kennedy from West Galway. My great grandfather was her son Edward, my grandmother was Edward's daughter Caroline, and my mother was her daughter Caroline. I have many photos taken at the West Galway family homestead at the end of the 19C, as well as original letters and clippings. I rediscovered the house, by matching the photos, and also found the gravesite, back in 2001. I know the house was sold shortly after my visit, and would like to know if it has been preserved and also if I have any relatives out there!

I am upset the Newport is not opening the Veteran's Memorial Swimming Pool for the summer of 2007. This is the first we are hearing about the city's financial "troubles"
for the past 10 yrs keeping the pool open. This is the last pool in Campbell County that I am aware. We depended on the pool as a way to stay cool in the heat and it was cheap enough that we could afford to take some friends with us. Swimming is something all people, young and old could enjoy all day long! The city is basically abandoning the youth and giving them more time to not have anything to do but hang on the corners.

I have recently acquired a number of photos, probably turn-of-the-century, which may be of Zearing. One shows a team of horses pulling a wagon, identified as belonging to "Newt." In the background is a building which says "Kingman Real Estate." Can anyone verify that these are Zearing? If so, perhaps you can help identify some of the other scenes that I have. Thanks!

Well, Cairo was at one time a place where the older people would have wanted to relocate when retirement had set in for them, but there is nothing here for the older people anymore. I am a resident of Cairo, love it here because it is so peaceful,but this gets really old without anything else to do, other than sat in your rocking chair.

I have fond memories of Oxford, and its warm and inviting community in the day that I trod my feet upon its soil. Even as one of the less popular kids in school, I still found my place to belong.
Someday soon, I hope to visit again, and walk along roads that once took me home. As small towns go, I know I will meet old friends along the way.

Hi,
I lived in Port Jervis about 25 years ago, and really enjoyed the life there. I'm thinking seriously about moving back in about a year. Right now I'm trying to find a suitable place to rent, a 2 bedroom would be nice. I'd prefer a house because I like to garden, but may only be able to afford an apartment. If anyone has any sugestions please blog me, I live in California, and must really make plans ahead of time, it's a big move to accomplish. Yes, I still have friends that I haven't heard from in years. Move after move, you lose contact. My name is Sally Nemeth if anyone recognizes it.
Thank you.

As a native of this area, I feel specially qualified and privileged to blog about all of Volusia County. But I have chosen to make my home in Port Orange.

The motto for Port Orange, FL is "Unique by choice, not by chance". That's the perfect theme for this beautiful, friendly city.

Located just 5 miles south of Daytona Beach, FL, we have the perfect proximity to special events, but are not in the thick of things when we're ready to get away.

If you're considering moving to Port Orange, we have the beautiful Intracoastal Waterway, the Atlantic Ocean and many new housing developments, as well as older homes if you like something more traditional.

The schools in Port Orange are top notch. My daughter is now a senior at Spruce High School and has excelled there over the last 3 years. Prior to that she was a member of the first class to graduate from Creekside Middle School since it opened it's doors in 2001.

Port Orange is a popular destination for all ages, since we have theaters, restaurants, doctor's offices, pharmacies, banks, a hospital, churches, shopping, and even a Go-Cart track, all within close proximity to our homes. And let's not forget, unless you choose a house or condo directly on the beach, the Atlantic Ocean and I-95 are still just minutes away.

I would highly recommend Port Orange to anyone seeking Florida's warm, sunny climate and a friendly, small-town community.

Can anyone tell me what Mayor Godfrey's first name is? He was mayor of Harrisville before Fred Oates, and I'm not sure whether there was anyone who was mayor between them. I know he was mayor for a number of years and owned an insurance company. Also, was he a Democrat or Republican?

Thanks so much for helping this curious lady.

LaPlace,
A wonderful place to live. If the city and the country were married and produced a child...
...It would be LaPlace.
LaPlace has great schools, great homes at affordable prices, shopping, family restaraunts, and is only minutes away from the excitement of New Orleans and Baton Rouge!
You can search the whole world over thirty times and will never find a place to live quite like LaPlace.
It offers the wholesome values of country livng but the conveniences of city living.

I left there soon after graduation from Bellaire High School and moved to Philadelphia, PA after a stint in the Army. I do manage to vist Echo at least 4 times a year!

It's always good to come "home".

My Great Grandfather founded the original Ensign, Kansas. It was told within family lore that he founded other towns as well, and set up livery routes and general stores.

The most information I have found is within the writings about the Beersheba Jewish communities, and his association with several Jewish businessmen in these efforts.

He was first a professor at the Western Reserve College in Ohio, which I believe is now Hiram College. Was told to "go west for his health", took his family there in the mid 1880s, participated in the dealings mentioned above, andwas known a "The Professor" in Cimarron City, where he lived

He lost everything he built within about four years, as many people did at that time, moved to southern California, resumed teaching, which he loved. Then returned to Cleveland, Ohio to both teach and begin a real estate business.

If you have anything to add to this story, please do so.

Thanks,

Is there anyone in Russell ND or do you know anyone who lived there around the early 1900s who would remember a Thomas Edward Larkin and his wife, Elizabeth Marie, sometimes called Marie or Mary who lived there? They were my grandparents and my father Harvey Larkin was born there. He had an older brother named Harold, a sister named Mildred and then a younger brother named Wilbur. My father was born in 1912 in Russell. I believe my father dated a Helen Susek (sp.) for awhile. I am looking for some info about my grandparents when they lived in ND. I believe they farmed and lost everything in the dust bowl and/or the depression. They then moved to southern Minnesota. Thanks for your help. God bless.

Some of the best things about living in Lihue is it's central location to everything. Within the city limits you have the best public & private schools, government and business offices, quaint "mom & pop" shops to big box retailers. Golf courses, hospitals, airport and white sand Kalapaki Beach are all within minutes of each other.

The weather is great! A fair balance of warm sunny days broken up with the occasional scattered showers which keep everything green here on the Garden Isle.

Living in paradise was never more convenient.

Love Squam Lake. My family has been spending summers there for 5 years now. The people in holderness that we have met have been some of the nicest people.

Depew is located approx. 40 miles west of Tulsa, OK on historic Highway 66, and approx. 70 miles east of Oklahoma City, OK.
In the old days, the population numbered in the thousands, but as the oil boom moved on, so did the population. At one time, there was a Chevrolet dealer (Rainbow Oilwell Service now occupies that facility), 2 movie theatres, hardware store, cotton gin, grocery stores, bank and numerous other businesses.

Murfreesboro TN is a great place to live and work. We have four children and have found Murfreesboro to be a wonderful community to raise our family. Real Estate home prices in Murfreesboro are significantly lower than neighboring Williamson County. We moved to Murfreesboro from Brentwood and have found Murfreesboro to be an excellent fit for our family. There are unlimited dining options; everything from five star gourmet to fast food and franchises. The existing Stones River Mall is renovating and expanding. The Avenue, which is an upscale outdoor mall is set to open in the fall of 2007, and Stein Mart will be opening a new store in The Oaks shopping plaza.

I just bought 10 acres in Banquete, Texas.
I have big plans for my 10 acres!
I love the land and I love the outdoors life out there.
My family is not as entusiastic as I am about our new plot of land, but I have big dreams for our corner lot.
Lets just say: MOTHERNATURESGARDENSTORE has found a home in BANQUETE, TEXAS!

I couldn't believe how many snakes are still out there!
Whew..since I bought this land...I have seen about 5 snakes and I have only had the land for close to 6 months now. I don't like snakes but I do understand that they are good for the land...ridding the land of mice and such. So they are ok with me.

Friendly people everywhere in this little city, especially in trying to help us locate our dog Mandy, lost May 7 from Cassell Rd. A $500 reward is for anyone who brings her to Animals of Eden. Mandy is black, except for a white patch on her upper chest. Was wearing a purple collar with tags. People in town let me post her information, including the very kind postmistress and the helpful woman at the recycling area. Mandy is medium-size and might be afraid, hungry, and just wanting a kindly soul who will bring her to Animals of Eden, or call us at 884-3647.

My maiden name was Denton. I understand that my ancestors founded the town. My Grandfather was Oscar Denton who resided in Horton, Kansas after his marriage to Gesina Torkelson. I am wondering if anyone could send me any written history about the founding of the town.

I'd also love to read from people who live there how they like living there. I understand there are only about 190 residents.

I'm proud of my family and even though very distantly related am happy the town is still thriving.

Upon our first time entering the lounge, which was just to use the lavatory, we noticed it's unique smell and interior design. It just felt like home. Waiting outside for our departure from the lounge, were a few deme children conspiring to jump in our car with rocks in their hands. Being very intimidating, we managed to run to our car, with the deme children runnning after us trying to jump in. Luckily we closed our doors before they were able to get on board. We want to spare you some furthur details and just skip right up to meeting our future best friend(s). We nicknamed these estral beach "natives": Josh Cut Off, Jenny Craig, Clay Aiken, Tommy Boy, Jeff Hollister, Lunch box, Pete Peterson, and myself received the nickname Steve Stone. They showed us many great features of estral unknown to the general public. We laughed, cried, powwowed, and enjoyed life to its fullest by experiencing all that we could milk out of the great .5 square miles of estral beach.

We continued to arrive and build everlasting friendships with these genuine guys. Through our experiences we have became accepted in the estral beach society and have been dubbed natives. We have memorized all of the history, which is an interesting history might I add. "Estral" means star in the Spanish language, as a tid-bit. If anyone ever has any questions or would like to go on a tour of the village, please reply.

Thank you for your time, we hope that you come to love estral beach as much as we do and appreciate it for everything it's worth. thanks again.

Estral Beach. Where to begin.

Estral is the most beautiful, diverse place in the world. I appreciate it's beauty, history, and residents. Each one with a unique story to tell. It's our private getaway from the world. It's hard to choose one favorite place within Estral Beach. Here are some:
1. Tank Park
2. Honkey Park
3. The beach
4. Fermi
5. the Lounge
6. Lakeview
7. My friends josh, clay, tommy, craig, and myself, steve stone.


I love the serenity. The peace. the love. The beauty.


Maybe you would better understand this if we started from the beginning.

It all began one day, senior year, 2006. We arrived in a daze, unsure of what was before us. The view was spectacular. Many things just "wowed" us, like deme children putting curses on our cars, deme dogs, running lose everywhere you turned. Woah woah woah, getting ahead of muhself. The long winding road leading to estral can be very thrilling. at 80 mph we jumped that bridge and got..

continued.


some BIG air. I mean flying. We slowed down, opened the windows, took deep breaths, and spotted a large camo tank staring us down from tank park on the right. The park was magnificently placed next to the city building, complete with a fire station, police station, wedding reception hall, jail, town meeting place, anything you want it to be. empty. The roads also had superb name(s). ie: starlight, lakeview st., lakeview ave., lakeview rd., port sunlight, estral court, and also street signs where there are no streets to be found. We then strolled up to yet another magnificent building in this bustling town, known as thee estral beach lounge. They serve amazing food and have very personable workers in this classy shack. The loaded fries are just to die for, might i add and also reccomend. to be continued.

My great great grandparents lived in north brookfield. Growing up my grandfather lived with us and spoke about growing up there. All my relatives on my mothers side are buried at St Joes cemetery. He was a McCarthy and his mother was a Donahue(hope I spelt this right). I have pictures of the old McCarthy and Donahue homes. Is there any one with these surnames in or around N Brookfield?

One of my ancestors, Robert John Thomas, born 21 Sept. 1827, emigrated to the U.S.A. in the mid-19th century from Cerrigydrudion, North Wales, U.K. and settled, eventually, in Judson, Minnesota, as a farmer. I am attempting to obtain information regarding his wife and family. His wife's forename was Livia whom he met on board ship from the U.K. to the U.S.A. I believe that he was one of the people responsible for the building of the first church in Judson.

In 1989-1991 we lived in a huge house on hwy 241? It was an antebellum home on I believe 700 acres, once owned by the Wharton family. You had to drive down a long lane. It was not far from Carroll Oakland School. Can anyone tell me if this house is currently occupied? Has it been restored? Is it for sale? email me at fredandkim17@yahoo.com

Have long admired the town of Oxford. My grandmother lived her entire life there. I had aunts and uncles that lived on the circle drive behind the cotton mill.

How curious that we now register 34% German ancestory but our claim to fame and our exploited heritage is Danish.

The chief of police and the top officers who have mis-used grant money should be fired/ or asked to resign. they were responsible for knowing how the money was spent and they were responsible for spending it on themselves in the form of overtime. they are corrupt and if not that stupid. get rid of them

My wife and I are considering relocating from the southwest. We want to live in a small charming city a short distance from the ocean. We're also considering openning a business in downtown. My wife is a foreign language professor. We are in our 40s. Any feedback would be appreciated.

This small town in western New York, holds so many family memories for me. My uncles, Dan and Don Beecher, owned Beecher Bro's Oil co. for many years. My Grandmother Beecher owned the big house on the corner, as kids we loved to go to Grandmothers, lots of big trees to climb, a barn to poke around in, lots of cousins to play with. My favorite memories are of going to the yearly "Field Day" celebration, with a parade, and a small carnival. It was always so much fun, and the food was great !! I miss the area, the town, i know someone else owns my grandmothers house and i appreciate the restoration to its Victorian perfection. Nothing but good memories of Sanborn here !

Hi Friends,
Just some comments about all this clearcutting in our beautiful county. Who is responsible? And who is reaping the money garnered by such a proposal? I haven't seen any reports on just how much the state is amassing from such a project-the only thing we hear from Granholm is whining. We frequently receive letters from outside agencies begging to clear or selective cut our property...I KNOW there is big money in such a venture. Yet, we don't OWN as much land as has been decimated in our state land so far. How can anyone leave such destruction in their wake? I am speaking specifically about the area across from the current dump site on Merrio Road. Has anyone investigated the area? What is left is literally a crime. The road has been left nearly impossible to traverse. And the debris left after cutting could only spell disaster should a fire erupt in that area-it would go in a matter of seconds! And could they possibly bring in a port-a-potty? PLEASE, PLEASE HELP

I have lived in anderson my whole life and can't get over how great it is. Just like every town it has its good things and bad things about it. Everyone in town knows everything about everyone! and its just like a small town right out of a movie, you got the local auto guy who knows every little thing you need to know about a car, the local spot all the high schoolers go to after school, and you can't forget about the small diner that makes you feel at home no matter how far you are from it. If you ever have the chance come visit this little town of mine jump on that chance i promise you won't be disappointed you may even make a few friends.

Very shortly I will be moving to Milford, Ct and commuting via MetroNorth to New York City for work. The Stratford station will be closest to me and the station that I will be going to. Can anyone tell me how the space (seat) availability is on the train in the morning? I'll probably be getting on the train between 6:00 - 6:30 AM. Thanks.
