Dave Rosenbaum: Got first civics lesson in 8th grade at CGC

Dave Rosenbaum writes:
The white concrete block building was used to house the two eighth grades classes at Columbia Grade Center in 1960. Out teacher, Mrs. Bell, lived at the bottom of the hill on E. Frazier Ave and was an excellent teacher. I think Mrs. Paxton taught the other class. The old cannery was the polling place and I got my first civics lesson by watching out the window as a candidate for sheriff bought votes rather openly. - Dave Rosenbaum
