ONE MORE TIME

 

"Once More? For old times sake?" She didn't reply and he didn't really expect an answer. It had been several years since they had played together in the summer sun. They were both older now and a lot of the reasons that had brought them together in many a hot sweaty tangle just didn't seem so important now. "You know, we used to be a pretty damn good pair." She just lay there. "I remember when the kids were little. We used to go camping all the time. The kids enjoyed being...

A BYTE OF KNOWLEDGE

Details

The last issue of The Waynedale News was a pretty good one. In fact it was a great issue. Since Bob Stark has owned the paper many readers have commented on how much The Waynedale News has improved and grown over the past few years.

There is a great peace and tranquility felt there in the mountains. People came from all over the country to attend the SUN Conference. We saw old friends and made new ones.

As we left the mountains, heading back to Indiana, I was...

MAE JULIAN

Dear Readers,

 

I had an opportunity to talk to a kid who had an extraordinary experience. In his memory today it stands, still, as a highlight, even though he is now in his 5th decade of life. TV was new back in the 50's and it was the first time kids had been introduced to this exciting new life, which is so taken for granted today. I suppose the kids who first had automobiles, and didn't have to hitch up the horse, had a similar feeling. One of the programs in those very early years of TV...

DO YOU REMEMBER ENGINEER JOHN?

Details

Do you remember watching TV in 1954? It's been 48 years since Engineer John first appeared on local television. The show was titled "Cartoon Express" and the year was 1954. It debuted on WKJG-TV, which started broadcasting on Nov. 21, 1953.

Radio was John Siemer's (Engineer John's) first calling. When he came to Fort Wayne in 1953 he worked at WKJG-Radio. He did news, weather, sports, and commercials. Siemer, whose home area was Mount Healthy, north of Cincinnati, had attended the...
