Going Home
As most of you know, I enjoy movies on TV. Today I watched a good one on The Hallmark channel. It was about a young woman going back to her home town and taking her young son. She was going home to die. She knew it was a good place for a child to grow up and thought the town would take care of her young son.

I thought, that could be Welch. If Welch could have kept its industry and we all could have stayed home, it would be a special place. I know we would still have the Grace  and Stephens Clinic Hospitals, because there would be so many of us. There would also be car dealerships, only the children of the past would now be the owners of dealerships, stores, and restaurants and other businesses. I am sure Richard would be the owner of Don Clark Ford Sales. Jean, Nilda, and Anne would all be teachers on the hill. Pat would be Gym/dance instructor. Joe Edd the coach.

The low life that set fire to the Pocahontas Theater and the World War Memorial building, (the first in the nation) still may have set fire to them, but knowing our gang, we would have convicted him. The town knows who it was, just not enough evidence to convict. Our gang would keep after the subject until he would surrender.
My classmates, would have been the fireman and lawyers that did the investigating. We would have all the old restaurants up and running. I probably would be running the TIC TOC.
 Dino Ramella would be the editor of the Welch Daily News and I would be writing a column.A column about life in Welch. I think too that we would have worked very hard to save Welch High School. We would have made plans to rebuild the Kimball Skating Rink.

We would go back to Christmas like we  had back then. Remember walking on the sidewalk in front of Murphy's as the Christmas carols blaring out over the sound system. The snow falling down and saying hi to everyone on the street. We would know everyone. Remember the bells at the 3 entrances of town? There three bells that flash off and on one at a time to simulating the bells ringing. We would bring back the great Halloween party on the top of the Parking building. (the first in the nation). We would have all the parades. All the bands in the count would be grand as they used to be. I think the Mt View band now has about 16 or 17 members. I think we had more that 100.
I could go on and I may do it again,ha.
