Troy High School class of ‘48 reunites

first_imgSkip You Might Like Book Nook to reopen In the year 1948, average yearly wages were $2,950 and the average cost of a new house was $7,700.  A new automobile cost $1,250 and a gallon of gas was 16 cents. A loaf of bread cost 14 cents, a pound of hamburger meat was 45 cents and a two-pound bag of coffee was a whopping 85 cents.Bikinis were becoming fashionable and television sets were appearing in more homes.And, down south in Troy, Alabama, the Troy High School Class of 1948 was ready to step out into a big world of wonder. By Jaine Treadwell Sanders also remembered one special teacher, Miss Roxie Dunbar.“She was a pretty lady with real white skin. She loved pansies and she wore them as often as she could,” Sanders said. “In her class, we painted pansies and I loved them, too. Now, the faces have been taken off pansies and that’s sad. Pansies need faces for us to enjoy.”Sanders said, she, like most of her classmates “took D.O.- Diversified Occupation.” The students took classes in the morning and worked in the afternoon. Sanders worked at Edge Hospital as a nurse’s aide.Sanders said, in the aftermath of WWII, many of the young men in the Troy High School Class of 1948 were anxious to answer Uncle Sam’s call.“We have a long list of veterans in our class,” she said. “They were proud to serve.”Seated nearby where the THS Class of 1948 was enjoying renewing old friendships, members of the Mercer College basketball team were enjoying Julia’s buffet.“One of our classmates was talking with the players and told them that we all graduated high school here in Troy 70 years ago and that made us all way past 80 years,” Sanders said. “He told the players to take a good look at us because, in 70 years, that’s how they would look.”To the delight of the classmates, the young Mercer man said, “If we look that good, we’ll be in good shape.” And that was a high note on which to end the THS Class of 1948 reunion.

We were proud to have nine. It’s been a long time since 1948.”Class members in attendance were Sanders, Sarah Griffin Knight, Edge Senn, Douglas Griffin, Veryl Lassiter, Louise Boutwell Reeves. Nell Grant Fannin, Eugene “Pick” Daughtry and Raymond Hill. Messenger photo/Jaine TreadwellThe Troy High School Class of 1948 celebrated its 70th anniversary on October 20 at Julia’s Restaurant.

Back then, we didn’t have buses to take us to school and I remember walking to school from where we lived on Skinner Crossing off South Three Notch Street to the schoolhouse on Elm Street.” Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Published 11:41 pm Thursday, October 25, 2018 Troy falls to No. 13 Clemson Print Article By The Penny Hoarder PARENT EXPO: Pike County Schools shows off programs Parents of children in the Pike County Schools system got an inside look at the programs and resources offered to… read more Troy High School class of ‘48 reunites Around the WebMd: Do This Immediately if You Have Diabetes (Watch)Blood Sugar BlasterIf You Have Ringing Ears Do This Immediately (Ends Tinnitus)Healthier LivingHave an Enlarged Prostate?

Greater than its parts

first_imgAlbum review: Love Is All Mixed Up by Love Is All Modern Swedish music seems to be making quite a splash recently, with bands such as Shout Out Louds, The Knife and the confusingly-titled I’m From Barcelona all making the jump across the North Sea. Love Is All made that same journey in 2006 with their debut album Nine Times That Same Song, sounding like a happy mixture of The Go! Team, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and with a little bit of The Pixies added in. Mixed Up, as the name might suggest, is a remix album done by artists such as Metronomy and Hot Chip. So how does it fare?Quite well, really. Leaving almost nothing of the original, each remix takes the track in a totally new musical direction, from the synth-laden sound of Maps’ version of ‘Turn The Radio Off’ to the danceable beats of ‘Spinning and Scratching’, Metronomy style. However, one or two tracks drag, with some overly long running times for no apparent reason. Particularly guilty of this is Studio’s remix of ‘Turn The Radio Off’, which stretches the same idea over ten minutes and bizarrely features the riff from Talking Heads’ ‘Psycho Killer’. Opening track ‘Felt Tip’, remixed by Fyars, is passable, but pales in comparison to Hot Chip’s take on the same song, which has a much more ambient feel than most of the album, while still managing to be cheery and upbeat. Admittedly, the general electro theme does get a bit tiring, especially when many tracks have a fairly repetitive style.Mixed Up provides a refreshing new look at old songs, and is well accomplished in its own right. Fans of the original may miss the fast-paced intensity, but there is such a variety of styles on this album that most will find at least a few tracks to enjoy.Four stars.Thomas Barrettlast_img read more
