This is my second post that blog buddy,Travis Erwin, inspired his blog buddies to participate in.
I did find an interesting video of my town:
Some points of interest are:
Saint Louis Church- Where my family attends church and where DG, our brother and I went to elementary school.
Some other interesting facts about my town is that the railroad cuts the city off from the "outside world" if a train is stopped on the north and west ends of town. There have been days when I was stopped by a train and really needed to get on the other side of the tracks to get to work.
There was a time when a fire broke out on the North side of town and none of the fire fighters on that side of town could get to the fire station to get their gear. It was pretty awful. They had to have the guys who could get to the station, get their gear, but the only problem was the fire trucks and ambulances were not able to respond due to the train cutting off the town on both sides. They had to call the Nimishillen Fire Department to assist them until the train moved. There has always been talk about an overpass or something to be done so that this doesn't ever happen again. Like most towns people, we will believe it when we see it! LOL
These same trains lulled me to sleep when they passed through town as I was growing up. I miss those nights when you could feel the bed rock just enough that you were put into a deep sleep. The railroad is what built my town and it will always be an important part of my little town.
This is our high school's home page
This is my alma mater:
Saint Thomas Aquinas Knights
Recently, the city had to build a new middle school due to the population growing to the point where the old Jr. High School couldn't handle the amount of children who passed through the halls. I substituted in the old Jr. High, and I am going to miss seeing the inside of that building. The reason? My Great-Aunt Loretta was the Louisville Education Association's Teacher of the Year and her name was displayed there at the entrance on a plaque for everyone to see. At one time, I wanted my name to be right there with hers. That is still my dream one of these days.
That's the end of my ramblings this week...... till then!!!!
