Allen Quattlebaum Lana Duncan 1964 newspaper clipping

Homecoming Royalty in Searcy Arkansas

How thrilled folks were, way back then, to have their pictures in the newspaper.  This old clipping has spent many years in an attic or two (date is somewhere around 1964) so it is probably not as clear as we'd like it to be.  But it is good that the names are printed below the picture.

The little boy with his hands in his pockets still lives in Searcy and owns Quattlebaum Surveying.  The little girl also lives in Searcy and is my step-daughter.  Aren't they adorable?   

It is kinda sad that the newspaper business has declined and few people are subscribers anymore. Facebook may be helping fulfill the void but  I still like the historic ads and friendly photos from years ago.

Here's another one from the attic.  It shows how TVs have also changed!

Check out the hair styles from back when!  If I dug around in my old photos, there would be one of me sporting a 'fro back in the 80s.

Good afternoon Barbara. I miss the newspapers too. It was a real kick to see yourself in the paper.

My husband is one of those diehard "I like the feel of the paper in my hand" people. They're about to eliminate the Saturday "paper" & only offer it in digital form. He's going to have to adapt.

What a vintage treasure for those living in Searcy, Barbara!  1964 was a special year for me.  I became a bride.

Debe, that has happened in Searcy.  The state newspaper has to be read on the ipad.  No easy clipping and saving.
