MEMORIES  From Patsy Sims Moore (recently found missing warrior)

The first thing this morning I got up and got on the Internet to read the Central Warriors

Web page. You guys have done a great job. I liked the article on the air born books in

one of the teacher's room and her laughing about it--fooled you guys, huh?  Guess we

are about their ages now.


My favorite teacher was Irma Sternberg, I think she got her PhD the year I had her. We
both loved William Blake.  I do have some funny stories about my homeroom teacher,
Miss Ada Millett who taught home economics. We thought she looked so much like a

chicken; even her erratic movements had a "pecking like" aura about them.  And the

name Ada Millet was often interpreted as, Ate a millet, what else do chickens do?  She

also told me, after I did the Bible reading one day for the room and expounded on it that,”

You should be a preacher one day." So she couldn't be all bad, I did teach for several

years and that’s pretty close to being a preacher, just less respect. ha, ha. 

It was a lot of fun.

 

I do want to come to some of the "happ i nens" that you have, and I’m looking forward

to the ’08 reunion.


I was saddened to see that Jimmy Turner died at 21.  He was always so kind to me at
Central, I remember him with great fondness.


You guys have opened up a very special world to me again and I thank you so much

for the effort that you have gone to in bringing this Web page and the friendships back

together.  PICS

HELPFUL HINTS  This from Jo Ann (Mrs. Larry) Solomon
Dryer sheets often cause an invisible film to collect on the lint filter of a clothes dryer.

Often, the buildup is so severe that water will stand on the otherwise clean appearing mesh

filter. The resulting heat buildup can cause the dryer’s heating element to burn out. Every

six months or so, remove and wash the filter with a stiff brush and hot, soapy water.

LOCAL VOLUNTEERS NEEDED  From Paul Sisco
