Beside East End Pizza was Mike's Cut Rate.

Real Fountain Soda's made there. Best Cherry Coke in Tyrone in its day.

I know the place you are talking about Terry across from the car wash. I want to say it was Harpsters or something like that.

The Agway pop bottles were the coldest in town and went down great after a Pee Wee League Game.

I just wish that I had half the money I made doing high school dances back in the day.

With good sound investments and interest, I might have enough money to buy a plane to fly home every Friday for Tyrone football.

I did my fair share of eating at Country School Chicken and the legendary Charlie's Lunch.

I also snuck my fair share of "TEEM" that surely looked like PBR out ot the Pop machine at Dave's Mobil.

Nothing like the steak sandwiches at Charlie's Lunch and I don't even remember what I ate at Country School Chicken. I would eat my fair share of drumsticks, but there was something else that I ate there more often.

Anyone who is "lost" with those comments can refer to some previous discussions:

These are also reasons why the staff of COUNTRY SCHOOL CHICKEN and CHARLIE'S LUNCH also used to frequently call the police station and say "that little HARLOW heathen is in here again, get a cruiser heading this way..." :shock: :roll: :lol:

Yea, that sounds right. Wasn't it Harpster's on the corner of West 15th and Columbia Ave, and Mike's (and perhaps another name at another time) further down Columbia Ave between West 16th and 17th? And ACROSS from "Doodles" Forcey's Barber Shop - that's going back a while, though.

You may want to specify what you mean by "doing high school dances" - folks may think you were paid for your "redshoe" skills!

That little Harlow Heathen was always escorted by Butch or Fran in those days.

I may not have known how to hit a jukebox with my fist and make music play, but I could get beer out of a pepsi machine. That has to account for something.

Well YEA, but...

... so could a little inbred-looking pre-kindergarten tourist munchkin who had to stand on his tiptoes and about 8 inches of air just to reach the selector button. :?

That actually happened once. Dad had to give them a six pack of pop to get the beer back.

Actually, I was the one that gave them the 6-pack - unless it happened to your dad too. Refer to the one link in the post above.

I forgot that it happened to you too.

I know it happened to Dad once.

Imagine how much money Mom and Dad would have made if I didn't have posession of the keys to the candy and pop machine at the time.

Dave's Mobil
Where Teem = PBR
Where a 7 year old can win $100 on the football slips
Where when Fran came, everyone shaped up, including Butch.

Ann Harpster had the store on the corner of Columbia and 15th. She was the nicest lady. Always had her spot beside the counter. Mikes Cut Rate did have good Cherry bombs, but the white lightenings were what I remember most. Amazing how kids now will only remember Uni-marts and Sheetz...
As for the little red headed Harlow kid, I could tell you stories, but so could he... ! And Butch and Fran were nothing compared to Bonnie!

You're just mad that Bonnie wouldn't let you sit in Dad's chair when you were babysitting.

Come to think of it Bonnie, my dog, wouldn't let me sit in Dad's chair either.

I was a little bit upset last year when I finally was able to attend a class reunion, only to find out no one wanted to bother with it. After talking with Nat about it I found out that nobody wanted to deal with the setup of the whole thing. Did anyone else from 74 miss the reunion or do you all agree it's just not worth the hassle?? I'd like to know.



I missed the reunion to, was really looking forward to it, because all the other ones we had were so much fun & kudos to the folks who did all the work cause we miss them now!!! i just hope we can get it together again cause 74 was a good year, right??? K(Aults)Bowden

OK - it's been quite a few years, and I may have it confused with another store that was on PA Avenue near 14th Street, but was it Heberlings?
Or "Hikese's" (spelling?). And a couple of those names mentioned by djBigDawg in another post: (Mikes Cut-Rate and especially Harpster's store) sound about right.

Also, if I am not mistaken, the variety store on Columbia Avenue to the left of East End (facing it) changed names sometime in the 70s - so there could be more than one correct answer. Didn't one of the Aults families own or run it at one time, or at least have a family member (Mike) that worked there?

No, the Aults family didn't have a store on Columbia Ave. but they did have one on 10th street many years ago, where the news agency is now and that was many years ago...K(Aults)bowden


And every time a certain kid went in there, they used to call the police station and say "that little Banks HEATHEN is in here again, get a cruiser heading this way..." :shock: :roll: :lol:
