Do any of you Morotn grads remember a girl who graduated in the 68-69 time frame named Carol Sharp or Sharpe? I worked with her at Jonsons Blue Top in Highland and have always wondered what became of her.

Hey Bill, I was just "bustin' your chops" no offense taken. By the way, I was on the wrestling team in name only. It was something to do but I really stunk up the mat (not literally). You know how former ball players become legends in their own minds the older they get...not in this case.

Steve

I meant it respectfully, in a tough, athletic sense--same as I'd speak of Stosh, the football tackle, Josephine Cowsnofski's brother (in Jean Shepherd's book Wanda Hickey's Night of Golden Memories)! I know enough not to bad-mouth anyone who can tie me into a knot! According to my '66 Top Hat, you were on the wrestling team, too!

Bob:

It's great having you with us. Have you had a chance to get caught up with the posting on all the threads yet? I hope you will feel free to "revive" any old discussions that you find, if you have something to contribute. Also, start some new threads, if you have something that you think we could all enjoy discussing.

I wish you had not moved from your home on Calumet at such a young age. We could have had some great times discussing the old neighborhood, but it is definitely hard to remember things from when you were under six years old.

There still might be some things we could talk about, since you worked at Burger's when it was on Calumet. That would have brought you back to your old neighborhood when you were older.

I'm thinking I went to Irving 55-57, 7th, 8th & 9th. I was a mid-termer. I don't remember the home room teacher. I remember Mrs Steiner? for math who also taught my Dad. She couldn't touch anything without Kleenix. I had Bernie Krueger for shop. The Principal was Mr Lockey? There was a large blond teacher of what I don't remember but I remember the paddle she swung. Mr Thompson was the coach? I used to eat lunch at the Cottage Restaurant on Calumet and of course had to visit the Igloo once in a while. My uncle owned Calumet Sheet Metal Works and the Norge Village on the corner of Hoffman and Pine and my Dad was the shop foreman.

I and a friend almost didn't get to graduate. Graduation was in the afternoon and at lunch we dropped a lit firecracker through the mail slot of the library. Someone must have told on us. Mr Lockey probably thought it was best to get us out and forget about us but he did give us a stern lecture.

I think a couple of the guys in my class were of drinking age.

I don't remember the Algebra teachers name. I had him for one semester before going to High. He didn't teach me anything and when I asked a question he would only say look in the book. When I got to High I was already signed up for Algebra II and was at a total loss and had to drop it.

Bob;
You must have been with me those years! Mr Lockey used to chase me home and I'd lock myself in the garage. Mr. Byers taught math too and had eighth assembly. My homeroom was Ms. Gligor. I left Tech in 58 by invitation of Mr. Dale View (sp?) He was boys co-ordinator. I was then a junior and couldn't get back in a Hammond school so I went to East Chicago and took the GED and enrolled at Purdue. That put me a year ahead of everyone else. I lived behind the Igloo on Oak Street. Fred Sasse was on this site but he disappeared a while ago. Is there still a Fetlas by Valpo? Tom W

Fetla's was bought by someone else and they cleaned it up which took the fun out of it and they closed a couple of years ago.

I don't remember a Ms. Gligor.

I liked Mr Lockey even though I got quite a few swats from him. I think Ms. Steiner was the only one I didn't get swats from.

Hey all you Hammonites! I'm brand new and this is my first posting. I grew up in North Hammond, went to Irving Elementary til 3rd grade, moved to Woodmar and finished at Porter. I Went to Jr. High and Sr. High at Morton, grad of 1960. My dad must have been cut from the same cloth as Ralphie's right down to the cussing of clunkers. My teen years were spent in Hessville in my old red and white Chevy with the outside white viser (real classy!) with friends chipping in 25 cents at the end of the night to replenish the gasoline. I'm living in Sugar Land, Texas, at least for now, after spending most of my adult life in Highland, IN. Yes, SW Houston is HOT & HUMID!! But, it beats the heck out of 30 degrees below zero windchills. I remember huge snowfalls & ice storms in NW Indiana that don't seem to happen as much nowadays.

Good to hear from you again, Ken. Thanks for the welcome. I'm thrilled to be here. But, at my age, it doesn't take much to thrill me anymore. Does anyone but me remember Rovai's on Calumet? Used to go to Hammond on #2 bus and always ended up there. That was before I was old enough to drive - several million years ago.

Welcome Carol:

I am familiar with Irving School. I attended Kindergarten there but went to All Saints in downtown Hammond for grade school, then Bishop Noll for high school, graduating in '59. Your mention of chipping in two bits for gas reminded me that a quarter bought a gallon of gas back then.

I also know where Sugar Land is. I did some technical consulting for the Sugar Land Fire Department in the late '90's.

Paddy, did you know Cathy Yonkers? I think she may have been class of 61. She lived on Columbia just north of 149th. She went to All Saints and then Bishop Noll.

Hey, Paddy. Alot of people come to the Houston area and Sugar Land but it's not a place they choose to live out their lives. Alot of
money down here and it's costly to live if you don't make big bucks. Not only was a gallon a quarter, but an attendant would run out, fill your tank with gas AND wash your windows. And actually thank you. Those were the days, my friend. Sounds like a song!

Carol, I know that Rovai's has been mentioned several times....don't remember which post it was. I went to school with Karen Rovai...I think it was her family that owned it.

I was amazed by the number of McMansions in the new subdivisions. The three-car garages made the homes look like they were built as adjuncts to the garages instead of vice versa.

Her name doesn't ring a bell. Noll was a big school, with graduating classes of 300-400. However, I did date someone from the Class of 61, a comely redhead named Novelene.

Hi, Linda. I remember your name also. Yeah, there were many of us that lived close to the Blvd. East and West, really. A whole lot of subdivisions went up in the early 50's. Parents like mine were able to move their families "south" from north Hammond and East Chicago. The block I lived on in N Hammond had only one kid, me. So when we moved to Woodmar, it was heaven on earth! Lots of kids on every block. Even though it was a 'hike' to Porter and then to MHS, I loved it.

Those were wonderful days and I do not think it is the haze of the years. My class only had 13 and grew expotentially when we went to the JR HIGH. We were innocent enough not even to realize how great everything was and was to become. We were from the small lot of Real War Babies.. NOT THE POST WAR BOOMERS

Carson Pierre Scott had us paint on their windows. That was so radical and some people think that their children's painting on store windowa is so new. Nope we were doing it back in the 50's.

Linda, GREAT memory! I'd forgotten about the Carson windows, but you're right on. I was born not quite 4 months after Pearl Harbor, so don't remember much about that war. Been way too many since then!! I sometimes wish that my grandkids could have experienced some of the 'quieter times' that we were able to enjoy. I tell them about growing up in the 40s and 50s and they look at me like I was raised in a cave. Ah, well, time stands still for no man (or woman). This thread has reminded me of so many forgotten memories. Thanks y'all (that's 'Texan' for all of you).

Hey, Hessvillites, do any of you remember Hessville Park before the Little Red School House? Sure you do! We all remember Hessville Pool, but do you also remember the winter ice skating and the warming house provided us skaters? Many years later, when Bush and Reagan were fighting it out in a primary, Jimmy Stewart(the Wonderful Life and many more great movies), stood on the porch of the School House to promote Reagan. I was delighted to personally meet him but was rather taken back by the very long hairs growing from the TOP of his nose. Lots of memories of Hessville Park!!

Cindy,

Sounds like you're thinking of Goldblatts. It was a across Hohman from Woolworths, and as far as I recall it had elevators.

Carol,

Yes, I remember Hessville Park; we moved to California Ave. in early 1962. You might recall that there was a concrete wading pool on the west side of Hessville Pool - between it and the skating rink. Years later it was filled in, blacktopped, and converted to a basketball court. In the Summer of 1966 I got a job with the Hammond Parks Dept. and worked at Hessville Park. Our tools were stored in a room in the shelter house. There used to be a small playground area with swings, little slides, etc. just west of the sidewalk path that ran on the west edge of the skating rink between Parrish and 173rd St. There was a larger slide and swing set near Hessville pool and the former wading pool.

Hey, guys, this is WAY off topic, but need some help. Do any of you remember why Dandy Don Meredith was fired from Monday Night Football? I remember it was something he said to Cosell during a game that some felt offensive, but can't think of what it was. Help! Please and thank you.

Here's a timeline of Monday Night Football. Seems Meredith quit and was replaced by Fred "The Hammer" Williamson, who clashed with Cosell and was "bought out'. See the 1974 entries.

Morton 8 thru 12

Thanks a bunch!! I really thought Meredith was fired - had no idea he left after 4 years. Urban legends, I guess or just faulty memory. Thanks again, I really appreciate it.

Hello, I lived with my grandparents for a while at 6842 Carolina Ave, Hessville. They were Ernest & Bessie Meadows. They sold their home about 1960 and followed my family to Florida, where they lived the rest of their years. Grandpa worked past retirement at Inland Steel. My Mom and her brothers went to Morton HS. I went to kindergarten somewhere around there, then Mom and Dad moved to Illinois, then Florida, I got married & now live in Northern Georgia.
I remember many a summer vacation,weekends and Christmas,staying with my grandparents.
My Aunt Helen Meadows now lives in Griffith, and my other Uncle, Buel Meadows lives in Longview, TX. Toni

Toni -- You will not believe this -- My parents bought that house at 6842 Carolina in 1960!!! Tomorrow when I have more time I'll post a photo of it taken way back when just to show I'm not kidding.

Toni,

Welcome! And, Ken, that is just about the ultimate in connections---almost 40 years from the time you and Toni passed each other in our beloved Hessville and did not know each other. WOW! Remember, we had a topic on those kinds of meetings.

The closest I have come to that kind of internet connection was having a former neighbor's daughter log on to this site and get me and my brother reconnected with the family.
Whoa-- who knows what some of us may experience from this forum if we remain here long enough for others to catch up to us.

Really, I am psyched at your and Toni's discovery.

Toni,
Sorry about the pictures not making it. See if these links work any better for you. We moved from Northwest Indiana to Hurricane, WV in 1975. My parents lived at 6842 Carolina until they retired and moved away in 1973.

Hello everyone I am new to Shep Talk. I have been reading the previous posts and find them interesting. Many true facts and some close. The Collins murders in the mid 50s happened on 176th street one block west of New Hampshire St. I moved to New Hampshire St. in '57. I lived in "East" Hessville from '57-'64. The manageer of the A&P store on Kennedy Ave. and then the new one on 165th was my neighbor, J.C. Yates. His son Frank graduated from Morton in '61

Small small world ! My wife and I lived at 6830 Carolina from the spring of '65 until the fall of '69. We rented a duplex from the Goodsons. Mike Goodson and I went to Morton together. I graduated mid term in '63. We bougt our first house on California St. Then sold it and bought our house on Alexander about 1976.

I'm sorry for the lack of replies to your posts. We seem to be in one of our lulls around here.

Come on, you old timers, give Roger a big Sheptalk welcome.

Hello Neighbor. Welcome aboard. Stick around and join in the conversation. At 6830 Carolina you were three houses north of my parents. I don't remember seeing any '63 Govs on here -- could be wrong. Did you have an older sister who also attended Morton for a while?
