Doyle Retires Although I will still be active supporting the environmental protection of our beautiful Colorado River, the time has come for me to retire from fishing. I could fill a book with the absorbing moments and the interesting people I have encountered. The first that comes to mind is a woman named Soon whose clothing bespoke her proper Chinese upbringing. On her head she sported a black crownless hat with a floppy brim covered in sequins. She also said eating fish heads on a daily basis would ward off wrinkles. I must admit that she had a flawless milky white complexion. The mother, a refined British lady, had to rely on touch to know when a fish was tapping at the hook. She held the line in the crease of her index finger and never missed a hook-set the entire day. We talked quite a bit during our hours together. She told me she preferred to fish rigid to the earth—still fishing to us—and that her late husband, Harry, was a fine fisherman but such a bore.

Anyone with basic cable can flip on the television and see something about wild animals virtually any time of the day. But in the s and s, motion pictures themselves were a new thing, and so the first wildlife films were unlike anything anyone had ever seen. African animals, of course, held the most appeal to American audiences, and the first people to capture images of these animals on film were the Osa and Martin Johnson.

While on tour in Chanute, Kansas, he met Osa Leighty, who was singing at the theatre where Martin was showing his travelogues.

During an impromptu press conference during Olena’s funeral, McGarrett says that Danno has been a policeman for 10 years. There’s a funny scene where Chin Ho is rummaging through a Goodwill box for evidence, to the amusement of people in the neighborhood, especially when he pulls out a brassiere. When Chin identifies himself as a cop, one kid says, “You’re sure not Robin Hood! Seth Sakai gets to spout a lot of medical terminology as Dr. Natanoa, and Lynne Kimoto appears very briefly as Nurse Tofu [sic!

In the episodic promo there is a different sequence of events after the driver of the car mortally shoots Olena, and Olena, lying on the ground, shoots back at the fleeing car, flattening its tire and causing the hubcap to fly off.

June 29, at 1: While we do most likely have 40, vacant homes as was found during the UNLV study of 6 months ago that was conducted by asking NV Energy how many properties did not currently have active electric service. We also only have 4, homes on the market that are actually for sale…. The homebuilders have hundreds of homebuyers waiting on lists to get the opportunity to buy a home. The new homebuilders cannot find any available land to buy at prices that will work to make a profit… and the BLM government owns most of the rest of the land that you now see vacant and will only release it when petitioned to do so which means that one must prove that there is a need for it.

Towns alphabetical Below are links to individual pages on each town in Mississippi that was located on a railroad. The idea behind these pages was inspired by James Brieger’s book, “Hometown Mississippi” published many years ago. While Brieger’s book is an excellent and much-needed reference, information available at the time was limited when it came to railroad and industrial history.

Since then, much research has been done by many individuals in these two areas, and much more remains to be done. These pages are a way to expand on Brieger’s research and hopefully others will contribute to them to make the story of Mississippi’s small towns more complete, accurate, and interesting. While the focus will be railroad and industrial development, I will try to provide at least a brief history of each location and include any and all old photographs we can come up with to illustrate each location, as well as recent photographs of what remains or sadly what doesn’t remain of each town.

Due to the enormity of the project, I will focus more on the smaller towns, as such an in-depth study of larger cities such as Jackson or Meridian would be almost overwhelming for one person. I will still try to cover the railroad and industrial history of these larger towns, as well. Many sources were used in the research.

Mercantile listings kindly provided by Rev. John Sharp provide an invaluable look at every business and industry in each town in the state for each year. These were published every month.
