Letter: Memories of Crab Orchard

M Saylor writes:
I grew up in Crab Orchard and have been to the Howard Theater during the early 70's. The building to the right was a Western Auto and then a fitness center in the late 80's. The house to the left used to be occupied by the Lake family. Back then this was a busy little town. --M Saylor

November 1977 Around Adair with Ed Waggener

This article first appeared in a November issue of the Daily Statesman, probably in 1977. Topics included check cashing, customer service, and some Thanksgiving bulldozing. --Pen

By Ed Waggener

Some make you want to come back
Some businesses have a way of wanting you to come back and spend your money with them. Others seem to be exceptionally endowed with the ability to sour all their customers.

Donald Pedigo of Edmonton is a student of such practices. As an advertising counselor, he runs into all types. He tells me about a fellow going into the service station business in Central Kentucky. "The first time I stopped by it was all cleanedup. I thought, 'This guy is going to do some good.' I traded with him, and I stopped the next time. But this time the manager had a sign up, 'No Damned Loafing!' Pedigo says that he had no intentions of ever lingering, as he usually has appointments to keep. "But I pulled off the ramp without filling up," he said, "the sign offended me. I don't like to do business with that sort of person.

Some put up signs like that on checks
I remember as a child going into a garage which said, "Yes we give credit. IF applicant is 80 years old and accompanied by both parents."

Eighty years ago: 2 Thanksgivings, and death of a grandson of The Shire

By JIM

Since Civil War times, the annual Presidential Proclamation set the last Thursday in November as a day of thanks -- until Franklin D. Roosevelt and 1939 came along. At the behest of a national retail merchants' association, FDR rather belatedly (in late October) set the date as November 23rd, the fourth Thursday instead of the traditional fifth.

The reason? You'll be shocked -- shocked, I tell you! -- to learn it was to give merchants more days for Christmas sales, for in those quaint olden times, it was considered poor taste to display Christmas decorations or to hawk holiday merchandise before Thanksgiving. Still, glimmers of dawn finally had begun to dispel the long night of the decade-long depression, and any chance to nudge the economy along was worth a try, even if it meant upsetting any number of already planned Thanksgiving activities. (Calendar makers expressed justifiable anger, and in that gentler era, most collegiate football seasons ended with a Thanksgiving weekend game. As a matter of fact, some conferences forbade any games after that date, and since the schedules had been set months in advance, all was chaos.)

Needless to say, confusion ensued.

History by JIM: about the Town Knocker

By JIM

In the summer of 1902, the Adair County News published an article about an odd critter found most everywhere, the ubiquitous "town knocker." A much-condensed version reads thus:

A knocker is a fellow who never sees anything good in the future, and to whom the present is simply a continuous climax of hard times, rascality and woe.
