Anyone remember this old filling station on Main street Searcy Arkansas? - 01/31/11 09:09 PM
WR Glass has occupied this building in Searcy Arkansas for many years. They have either moved or closed their business because this old building is now empty. It has intrigued me for years. Look at the columns. Are those Art Deco? Look at the tile. There has to be a history here that our Searcy Sleuths can uncover. This one was down the street from the Pershing Stationwhich we've blogged about. Was it also a filling station? Perhaps it was a store. Right now it is just a small forlorn building on a busy corner but we need to explore it (38 comments)
Sure nuff! Word was out that the old Tom Watkins house located at the corner of North Oak and East Race in Searcy Arkansas, built in the early 20's, had been bought and was to be restored by Attorney Penny Choate of the Choate Law Firm. Everyone cheered! We were all afraid that the house would be hit by the wrecker's ball. As soon as Attorney Choate had the trees cleared, she got the painters out and started working on the outside.

Corner of McRae and Sowell Streets Searcy AR - 01/19/11 08:40 PM
These kids were playing in the yard in the 40's. The private street that you are seeing led to the corner of Sowell and McRae, in Searcy Arkansas, a square corner. In the distance you can see a house that is still there and lived in. It was a rock house with a huge barn, outbuildings, a garden and everything you'd need to be country.
Time goes on. The barn is gone. But today the rock house is still there. There is a newer brick house beside it. The brick house is a 50's ranch house.
If you have a picture of it in its earlier years, we'd love to have it on this blog. Surely, someone out there might have an old photo. Dig in your old files and let us have a copy. If you are not a member of activerain you can't upload a picture but you can send it to me and I'll upload it. (37 comments)
We haven't had so much fun with snow since 1972? Old Sowell Street picture. - 01/13/11 04:21 PM
We have just had snow in Searcy Arkansas. Snow in Searcy means no schools, kids are free to go build snowmen, slide down hills, romp with the pups, throw snowballs and then come in dripping snow and ice and make a big mess in the house. Then they get dried off, warmed up and they are out the door again. It's pretty tiring to a mom. I remember. I also remember living at the end of this road and this hill and remember when the road would be frozen and kids would come sledding into the driveway. That little house at (16 comments)
40's style. Did kids have a fashion sense then? Mystery for Searcy Sleuths. - 01/10/11 07:27 PM
The Searcy Sleuths love a challenge. Therefore I'm giving them another one with these two pictures of a charming group of kids. The boy has evidently found his own style. One pant's leg is rolled higher than the other. Speaking to the kid reveals that it was not a style. So do you know why this was done? My thinking is that cowboy boots were the style. Every kid would have wanted a pair. This little girl wore hers with lots of flair. I don't know about you but personally I like that cap thrown way back rather than the way (16 comments)
Girl's sports finally got back to Searcy Arkansas. Having been devoid of anything for girls to do for several years, Mayor Leslie Carmichael appointed a Parks and Recreation Committee to employ a director and supervise the program. This was on Dec 7, 1971. Appointed to the committee were James Ahlf, Luther Hardin, Richard Hall, Mrs. Rodger Duncan (ladies still hadn't gained their own identity at that time) and Mrs. Jack Gardner. The hired director was supposed to form a girl's softball program as his very first act and he did. The girl's loved it. They flocked to the program and the (12 comments)
My White County Sleuths haven't had a puzzle in a few weeks so let's see if they can tell me where this is. It has been around for a long time, no doubt about that. I've always thought this was a charming little old grocery store. When it closed down, I don't know, but the building and the signs are still there. So, Searcy Sleuths, can you locate this one?

Junior Auxiliary members used to wear uniforms in Searcy Arkansas. - 01/02/11 08:14 PM
Remember when it was a big deal to get your picture in the paper? Now with facebook you can have your picture all over the world in seconds and not just in the local newspaper. Here's one that I stumbled across and want to share. We have a service organization called Searcy Junior Auxiliary. I was once a member and am still a life member. Life members have no duties but active members have to do a minimum number of hours for public service. Searcy Junior Auxiliary began the Sunshine School, which is a school for exceptional children. In the photo you can (8 comments)
I need the home inspectors to inspect my wood art. Bob Miller bowl gets a hole! - 01/01/11 05:55 PM
Dr. Bob Miller was my dentist....gentle and kind as could be. I always admired his art work when I had to visit him. The art work that he zeroed in on was working with wood. Beautiful wood objects, including turned bowls. He was honored as he and other artists were invited to display their works at the Searcy Art Gallery. At the reception, I bought a lovely bowl which was signed by the artist.
While dusting around my bowl today I noticed some strange stuff under it. It looked like powder. I looked more closely and found two holes in (34 comments)
