I think that Lewis county has a very good school system and if your the type of person that. Likes people to know you and you no them then Lewis county is the best place for you. Lewis county when I lived there I loved that school I had great friends that I miss dearly and family that lives there lewis co. is the type of place for kids and older people because they have a hardle any jobs and. They have the most beatiful water there are some beatiful scenes in Lewis county

There is just so much that people need to know about Lewis county a great school and there is lots of cool people down there they have the highest test scores in the state and they work hard but have fun why they are working hard they have a great JROTC program they are not there to get you ready for the war they are there to teach you respect and other things.

Austerlitz is a beautiful, small town in the foothills of the Berkshires which has always enjoyed a huge sense of community. My family, originally from the Bronx, moved there when I was a baby - 52 years ago. I grew up as a typical 'country kid' would. Swimming in local ponds, fishing, walking dirt roads, catching frogs, etc. A beautiful place to raise kids. Everything remained relatively the same, despite the growing population - up until about 10 years ago. At about that time, a different type of people started to moved in. With the influx of rude, obnoxious, elitists our small-town way of life is being threatened. Our neighbors are now watching every move we make, building fences, and instituting laws and talking about noise ordinances because "they know better" than we do. It seems to me that we were doing a pretty good job of being a town before they got here... otherwise, why did they come? Sorry, I had to vent.

Hello I am from Wittmann, Arizona and in order to fairly describe Wittmannites, I decided it be best if we could identify one! So at we tackled the many urban myths and some local legends to better help you understand this spot on earth another Podunk Ville as you speed along US Highway 60 (AKA Grand Ave) between Phoenix, Arizona and Las Vegas, Nevada. is a good place to start as is
when it comes to an inside look at this Podunk Ville hidden in Arizona.

Having lived in Holly Springs for 20 years I have seen many changes, some good, others not. The most troubling development is the almost constant animosity that has surrounded relationships and interactions between some of the town commissioners. Our town meetings remind me of nothing so much as bickering children. I have to wonder if the situation would become more constructive if we lowered the testosterone level by having some female representation on the Commission. A little discord can be beneficial, ensuring that at least there is discussion on issues but in Holly Springs it all too often sinks to the level of personal attacks. Rumor of our town leaders' poor relations seep out into the regional media, to no one's benefit. Plase guys, grow up and behave like the professionals that you are.

I know that my family does alot of bussiness there for their personal use and business use as well. I would like to know more about elk city and also would love to chat with anyone who may have known my cousin

One of the great things about Harrington, Me is that it has no zoning. One of the worst things about Harrington, Me is that is has no zoning. There is a tremendous opportunity for Harrington to help itself if it would only clean itself up. There are buildings in ruins and trash all over the place. The people need to take a little more pride in their town and get things cleaned up.

my problem is with the council getting rid of donald church (aka) chief of police. he was a good officer and you could not ask for a better chief but the council for some reason dosnt know a good officer when they have one. they fired scott brooks who also was a good officer i think they need to get rid of a few council members. they seem to be the problem..

Often we bring groups up to the park and use the tennis courts, while I was there last time a gentleman mentioned that they might be taken out. I'd like to encourage you to keep them there, we enjoy the non-crowded courts and the wonderful park.

The information about Windsor, OH and its name are not correct. Windsor Ohio was part of the Connecticut Western Reserve in the late 1700's. Two of the earliest settlers (Griswald and Phelps) came from Windsor, Connecticut (not Vermont), and hence the name Windsor. My eighth grade teacher, Mr. Loomis's family also came from Windsor Connecticut where there is a Loomis family Museum.

Veneta, Oregon is located just 15 minutes West of Eugene and only 45 minutes East of the Oregon Coast. While visiting Veneta, Oregon make sure you do some wildlife viewing all around the Fern Ridge Reservoir. You will see many birds, mammals, and fish. Stop in at a few of the wineries located on the outskirts of Veneta. They offer many wonderful lush wine flavors to dip your taste buds. Veneta has shopping, coffee, restraunts, and real estate.

Last night our wonderful boys in blue in Springhill proved how useful their time can be. Last night I was taken to JAIL...not because I am a drug dealer (though we have enough of those around here to keep the officers busy if they chose)...not because I hurt anyone or ran a red light. No; I was arrested because my 8 year old daughter accidentally left the door open and our puppy wondered out it. We realized it shortly afterwards and took off looking for her; we found her and were trying to get her on a leash when officer Edwards showed up. The dog did not hurt anyone or destroy any property. She came right to the officer when he called her. She has never gotten out or had a complaint of any kind called in on her. For this "crime" I was arrested and had to be bailed out of jail. I now have a criminal record. I have lived in this town for under a year. I have volunteered hundreds of hours to better this community. It's good to know that coummunity service is appreciated

Pros- It's beautiful here. Cost of living is affordable. No charge for trash, they have dumpsters every where. Once you live here for awhile they will accept you. Your neighbor watches over you without asking.

Cons- No jobs, law enforsement is below standard. People around here consider new arrivals "outsiders" they label you drug dealers or users. If you don't have an Indian card it's very hard to get any help. People born here throw trash anywhere they damn well please. There is no law against dumping, killing, or starving dogs. They charge $35 a day if you end up in jail. Their court cost are outrageous.

Hilliard is really a quite nice place to live. (Especially if you like the country) It's very quiet and peaceful yet is still close to Jacksonville and the nearby beaches. I live in a really nice apt. community called Eastwood Oaks and have met a lot of really nice people here. The schools are good and I like how everyone knows everyone!

I lived twice in NY State, now retired back in WV where I grew up. For some strange reason I dreamed about Stanley, NY. As far as I know, I've never been there and didn't even know if there was a town by that name. I understand it is in the Rochester area, and I have been there a few times. Have no recollection of ever going through the community or seeing signs for it -- nothing?? My dream revealed nothing about the town other than an awareness that it's where I was. Very strange. Can anyone tell me a little bit about the town and its history?

It was a great town to grow up in you could always trust you neighbors never had to lock your doors. Vestaburg Elem. School was like being a home with all your friends. The people who lived there were all ways willing to help each other no matter the task at hand this was back in the 50's now I moved with my parents to Ohio in the early 60's and never did like Ohio. I now live in Arizona and it is a great state also.

I have lived in Ponchatoula, Louisiana since 1984. From the beginning, people have not been very friendly. They are not open to "outsiders". It is very important to them how much money you have. The more money you have, or appear to have, the nicer they are. The sad thing about the patronizing behavior is that it refers also to the education system--from kindergarten to high school. I have never in my life experienced the kind of people as I have known here. I have lived in other places in the country, but the people are by far the most pretentious that I have seen anywhere.

The pros of living in Ponchatoula are the location is nice. It is not far from large cities like New Orleans and Baton Rouge. You don't have to worry as much about flooding as other places in the deep south of Louisiana. If you are fortunate enough to get well water, I highly recommend it. The well water has to be the best I have ever tasted. It is like water from the spring. There are many churches to go to for all religions.

Hello Jeffersonians, I was born in Jefferson City, Tn in 1963. I lived on Church Street. My parents tell me that as a child, I would not rest until I was allowed to sit on the stoop. Across from our house, a local woman sang and played her guitar at top volume. My parents say I was fascinated by this. As you may guess, I too, wrote and performed music as an adult. It would mean the WORLD to me if y'all could ask around and help me find out who she was, maybe talk to her family. I can't imagine how wonderful it would be if some recordings of her songs happened to exist. So , anybody remember the black blues singing acoustic guitarist of Church St, 1963 ? PLEASE let me know. Thanks alot, Meg Cole of the Shellis band (423) 208 - 2526 Thanks y'all. Meg

I have lived here about 7 years. My spouse was born and raised here. I think it's quaint. I like that everyone knows (or at least recognizes) everyone else. It makes it easier to spot strangers or see something suspicious.
I think the schools are great. This town is very focused on our children. Between sports and recreation they have plently of outlets.

There is one grocery store, a pharmacy, and a hardware store. We have everything necessary to survive just not a whole lot going on in the WOW department. So unless your idea of a date is bowling , pizza and a movie - you'd better gas up the car. And the one main source of employment here is struggling. My spouse works out of town.

The Family's farm is near Star Ms. We have one of the few still standing Old Barns I know of. The Barn was built from the lumber of the "Old D'Lo Ice house. I can not find any info on when the Old D'lo Ice House was torn down. It was near the 1930's by my best guess.

Any info on this would be great !

RE: High School Class of 1937-38
I'm trying to run down the members of my mother's high school graduation class (around 1937-38).
She grew up in McBurg, TN, but I can't find anything here on ePodunk about McBurg. I've heard her mention Minor Hill, so hope someone who may have graduated with DOROTHY OSBORNE (red hair) may see this and contact me.
She played basketball in high school. Her half-sisters were Violet & Rebecca Osborne, Clara Harris and Lillian Harris. Sister was Patty. Half brothers were Harry Osborne and Reuben Harris. Brother was Roy Osborne.
I'd like my mother to be able to get in touch with some of her old high school friends. She is living now in Chapel Hill, NC near us.

I am searching for any information I can obtain about my grandfather. His name was Harry Burton. He was an Adirondack Guide in the 1920's +.The homestead,
Burtons Camp, was north of Stratford at an area I believe they called Little Oregon on E. Canada Creek [?].
My grandmothers name was Alice and the children were -
Fern. Iris, Ivy, Harry, Jack and Chester. I have been told that my grandfather often discussed firearm production with one of the Remington's and that they had famous persons from downstate at the camp. I am trying to separate fact from fiction. Many years ago at the 200th. anniversary [I think] celebration of the village of Dolgeville I saw a full page newspaper article about Burton's Camp displayed in a store window. Now, years later, I have not been able to track the article down. Any information you my be able to give me would be greatly appreciated.

Mathias is home to thousands of chicken houses and millions of chickens. The whole county is infested with flies. The zillions of flies are disgusting but no one does anything about it because everyone here either owns a chicken house or is related to someone who does. There is also a "good old boys" network running the county and guess what...they also profit from chicken houses. You can forget about an outside picnic with your family in Hardy County if you live near a chicken house.
As if the flies and stench coming from the chicken houses weren't enough, the chicken farmers then take the chicken poo (litter) out of the buildings and spread it all over the fields, including hillsides, so when it rains, the chicken poo runs into the small mountain creeks and streams which then flow into the North fork of the Shenandoah river.
Other than the flies and the stench, Mathias is beautiful and quiet. If the flies would go away, Mathias would be almost heaven.

Hey, please tell me what it's like in Canton!! We fell in love with a house there, but it is more rural than where we are from in Little Rock.

Has anybody in Chesnee had trouble getting the city to clear their sewerline? I certainly have and considering Legal action if they don't do something about it.
There remains today an endearing and quintessential charm about West Roxbury. We who have lived all our lives here in this corner of the city have always known why the quiet tree lined streets and stately old Victorian homes provide an antidote to the vissictitudes and drama that would engulf any other urban dweller.

Now annexed into Fort Mitchell and this probably wouldn't of happened if Crescent Park stayed with DPA.

I'm an avid traveler to Silverthorne and have had a great experience every time I have been until now. I recently had a reservation at the Luxury Inn and Suites that I was unable to make because the passes were closed. When I called to cancel and or change the dates they were unwilling to cooperate. In a resort town that is between two passes that are frequently closed, you think a hotel would help you out. If you are reading this and thinking of coming to Silverthorne I would say come and have a great time because it is a great place to be, but I would not recommend staying with Luxury Inn and Suites. They will not work with you no matter what.

thanks and enjoy,

My Dad Fred Krauth was born in 1890 in Henderson, Michigan. He came to Montana on the train in 1907.
He got off the train at Mon-Dak on the Montana-North Dakota border. It was a cold wintry morning with a west wind and snow.
He found his brother Frank working for Rick Sweetman, Fred went to work for William Crandell's south of Bainville.

In June he and Frank went to Glasgow. Fred went to North Dakota and worked until Fall, then went back to Michigan until 1909, when he came back to Oswego MT and worked the the United States Reclamation Service which was building the Frazer Reservoir at that time..

He also worked at Poplar Creek and homesteaded in the Spring of 1915 in Scobey. His farm was 22 miles south of Scobey.

Hi There,
I am consiering moving to Marlton and and wondering what the overall attitude is on the Main Street in town? Also wondering what the Wiley church is about.
Wondering how the small businesses are doing there. Anyone have any c rime stats for the area? What is the general 'feeling' of the town and who lives there. I'm looking for something where I would be left alone, but yet have good neighbors who might be community minded.

This is a great place to live. It is a very nice place to raise your children. This is the reason I picked a house in this area. However there are some people that live in the area that can't seem to mind there own business. They go to city council meetings every month and complain about the dumbest stuff. I have had the cops to my house over toys yes thats correct toys in my back yard. I have a 4ft fence around my back yard so my kids can play without being near the road. I guess there is some ordinence that states you have to pick up items your kids played with and will play with the next day. Items like balls, stuffed animals, outdoor toys. I could see if I had dead stinky animals or garbage that blew into my neighbors yards but I have two kids who play in the back yard. It seems everytime I turn around there is some new ordinence that we don't know about. They never seem to supply that to me. People need to mind their own business. Walk down the front street.
