There was no foot bridge above the pipes, we just used the pipes. Also remember the spring ice jams because of those pipes. East Elementary opened when I was in third grade with Mrs. Swanson. Prior to that there was only Yampa elementary and Sunset elementary. Remember the awesome sleding hill called Campbells hill over the top of Legion. It was named that because a family named Campbell lived at the bottom (one of the Campbell girls used to sell waxed crepe paper flowers she made door to door). It was a short hike from there over to the sandrock cave.
Wow xrsareus, I'll bet you even remember Hesteds, and Ben Franklins. I very fondly remember the games of "come through" that we used to play on the rink, and yes ice skating all the way to the river was great fun in 21 below zero weather. The nice thing about winter was that it provided a short cut in the walk to East Elementary as that foot bridge didn't exist back then. Crossing the creek on those pipes would on occasion result in a dip in the creek. 3 Blocks east would put you on Legion?
xrsareus, I plead the 5th, suffice it to say we put on our ice skates at home and skated over to the ice skating rink in the winter.
xrsareus, it wasn't necessarily "free for them". The kids that lived next to the park would often raid their coolers, especially if they had beer in them.
How many innings did it take them to get those trophies?
The whole point to operating a bar is to make money off of people who drink alcohol, just like a hardware store makes money off of people who build things. It is not the hardware store owners responsibility to ensure that the builders follow code, so why is it the bar owners responsibility to make sure YOU don't drink to much? If your tendency is to drink and get into fights, then it is suggested that YOU don't drink. Take responsibility for your own actions!
He's not paranoid, everyone really IS out to get him *grin
Wow allen it must be nice to have such Godly judgemental powers. How about we let the trial run it's course and see what a jury of his peers comes up with?
How very true, they say if you only have a year to live, come to Craig, it will seem like a lifetime. (Understand that I say that in jest)
Hey Patrick, look up nimrod in the dictionary.
