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

Monday, February 06, 2017

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...
