Remember when: Dear hearts, gentle people - Andalusia Star-News

Monday, February 06, 2017

He rode over a lot of dirt roads and crossed some wooden bridges as we hooted and hollered with delight! We had a barrel of fun!Remember when – Editor Ed Dannelly would write in his newspaper, The Andalusia Star News, “The Smith family motored to Pensacola!” or “Mr. Jones went under the knife in Montgomery!” Some couples, it was reported, were always getting married in “wedded bliss!”Remember when – getting a real estate sign painted back in the mid 1970’s was easy since Hixon Signs and Berry O’Neal were local sign painters. They were within a block of each other on Dunson and Hixon Streets. Business signs, parade floats, no problems for those artistic fellows of that trade.Remember when – the bowling alley came to town in the 1960s, Andalusia Bowling Lanes. A little later LeMay Lanes was built on the U. S. Hwy. 29 West By-pass where Harper Electric is today. George LeMay loved to recognize his star bowlers and would post a large magnetic sign out in front for passers-by to view and to drum up business. One week’s sign read “TRIPP BASS WEEK.” Well, late one night a trickster removed the “T” and the “B,” and the next morning the phones began to ring! That’s all I will say about that!Remember when – the Portemont carnivals, Johnny’s United Shows, moved from Brazil, Indiana to make Andalusia their winter home. Johnny Portemont, Jr. and Marilyn brought with them their entire family including Johnny Portemont, Sr.; sister, Kathleen Portemont Bush and husband, Jimmy; and sister, Mary Portemont LeMay and husband, George. Johnny was a Marine in World War II and a flame thrower in the Pacific going into all of those islands, a real hero, who took a chance on settling here in the “dimple of Dixie.” His family members, all of the children and grandchildren, have made enormous contributions to our town. In addition, all of his carnival workers and their families were and still are a vital part of this community!Remember when – a great place to eat home-style catfish was Dutch and Nell’s Restaurant on Point A Lake. Some ladies would go down there to dine on Saturday night with rollers in their hair, yes, that’s right! In the wintertime, Dutch would have that gas space heater going that would warm one to the bones. There is even a road off of the Heath to River Falls Road named after the couple, Dutch and Nell Road.Remember when – the best barbecue in town could be found at Harris’ BBQ on Hwy. 29 North. There used to be a rental go-cart track adjacent to the Harris business. My friend, Marge Russell, and I would worry Eric Russell, her father, to death until he finally took us to zoom around that track several times. We went around on two wheels!Remember when – the best barbecue in the county could be found at Green’s BBQ in Gantt. No telling how many celebrities, politicians, and governors ate there through the years. A lot of their pictures hung on the walls. Seems like I heard something about “Big Jim” Folsom stopping in there during a campaign trip. “Hail, hail, the gang’s all here for the Alabama Jubilee!” I would love to hear str
