I remember an ad on tv in the early 70's with Burger Chef and his sidekick "Jeff"
I remember this production involved seven friends who graduated from college in Georgetown and began to adjust to life after graduation. One played the saxophone, another was studying to be a lawyer and infatuated with a beautiful young doctor. Still two others were living together and not sure what they wanted from their future ... but when things got tough, they still stuck together! WOW ... it's been 77 years already? It seemed like just the '80s or so when I saw it!
Kilowatt Lake came about from the channeling of the Wolf River in the early 1960s. I think I remember a USGS map from '59 or '60 that had the river meandering. And about that boat crash in the '70s I remember a very dramatic photo of the crash in one of the local papers.
The other day I was at a convenience store and for $8.99 one could buy a tablet of Libo-Grow. Libo for libido and grow for ... well, you get the idea. I am guessing electrified water has the same effect!
Sounds like a premise for a sci fi ... an elite group of the most intelligent and genetic stock of control freaks think the world is overrun with "undesirables" so they design this vault. One woman for every man. They form a secret society called the "vault club" to protect themselves once the massive nerve gas/neutron bomb attack destroys all of the non-vault inferiors. (Here is where you extend your little finger and touch it to the corner of your mouth.) I think that was the premise of the James Bond film "Moonraker."
My dad was a bowling alley manager on Cleveland across from Sears. His name was Ed Greaney, better known as working with WMC-TV from 1949-2001 (we had a retirement party for him in early '89, but he was working again two days later!). Some of his memories were the pin boys who manually set up the pins. They would get sardines on their lunch break and patrons would complain the bowling balls were oily! He also used to walk to the bank with the days' receipts!
