Shirley, it must have been Harley Stell, also known as Starley
Hell. He was a great teacher and not without passion.

I do recall another theme from KORD Radio: a slow, haunting
melody. I don't recall (if I ever knew) the title but a 
hint of it is in the back of my mind and will remain there,
haunting me for all time. Thanks a lot. If you ever determine
the title, please let me know. I need to erase the thought to
save space for something more important.

Re: Sun exposure and Skin cancer

My wife Jackie and I know of a couple of people who have
passed away from cancer that started as a lump on the skin.

Over the years Jackie has remembered seeing pictures of me 10-
15 years old with deep suntan. After hearing of how much time
I sent without a shirt on and looking at all my various skin
spots, she got all over me about skin cancer. Finally WE went
to a dermatologist. I stripped and she started pointing out
all of my 4-5 kinds of spots. He examined them all and gave
her a lecture on what to look for in changes of the spots.
None of mine were of any cause for concern but some do need 
to be watched.

Now about every 3-4 months when I get out of the shower I 
have to stand for inspection under the bright lights in the
bathroom. No changes noted.

A lot of the kids in Richland got an excessive amount of sun
exposure in the years before the '60s when warnings began
about sun exposure and cancer.

Those of us over 60 and into the 70s are at the age when
changes in spots we have had for years, or that develop at
this point in life should be checked by a skin specialist. 

Re: Fireworks

Slowly phasing out of fireworks but never completely, I am
working on my wood shop and it is ready to have a meter set and
power line run in. Then I will be happy being a full time wood

"Live long and Prosper". I am still having a hard time doing
that "V" with the fingers like Spock.

All this talk about Newberry's made me think of the Nanci
Griffith song, "Love at the Five and Dime”. Where she talked
about how all the Woolworth stores smelled the same, "like
popcorn and chewing gum rubbed around on the bottom of a
leather soled shoe”.

I don't remember the Newberry's smell, but I do remember the
popcorn smell that permeated all the departments of the Sears
store in Pasco.

Re: Swimming in PE

I recall using the swimming pool for the first and last few
weeks of PE classes. As a "Warrior" we were bused to the pool
and the "Cougars" and "Bombers" walked to it. As a sophomore I
had a classmate I had known since grade school who had never
learned to swim. I wasn't "qualified" but taught her to float
and a few other things beginners learn. The teacher was very
thankful, I wasn't asked to do it... just wanted to help her
out. She lived in West Richland and probably never got to the
"big pool" as a kid.

Re: Dime Store in Downtown Parkway

To the south of CC Anderson's, in a separate building, was
Thrifty Drug Store... loved getting my comic books there and
having a cherry coke with my big sis, Cherie SIMPSON ('64), 
at the soda fountain. It did burn down and my husband's Uncle,
who was a fireman, died in that fire. They tore down the 
burned building and built a new one for a variety of small 

Across Lee in the Parkway, to the North of CC Anderson's, was 
a Payless Drug Store in the '60s. In November 1968 the new
Payless opened down the street on Lee. That was my first job,
at Payless. It has been repurposed by Kadlec.
