WELCOME HOME KADIE!
I NOW HAVE A DISCUSSION FORUM ON COLUMBUS GEORGIA ON LINE!!! PLEASE VISIT AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE THREADS. WE CAN ALL ASK QUESTIONS, TELL STORIES AND INTERACT WITH EACH OTHER. PLEASE VISIT SOON, I CAN'T WAIT TO HEAR FROM EVERYBODY! http://www.columbusgeorgiaonline.com/index.htm
My name is Jan Doolittle Page and this is my site for local and regional history, folklore, memories and anything else we can put our heads together and come up with! This is like my virtual scrapbook.I want to have a place where people can send me stories and their memories of this area and what it was like to grow up or live here. We all know the basic history and local sites, but I enjoy going off the beaten path and delving into the quirky or oddball side of our local history. Not just things and places that are historicly important, but things that are important to us! The Schools we went to, the Drive ins we all remember, The restaurants we hold so near and dear. Everyday we pass things and locations and have no idea what once stood or took place there. I want to record all this before it gets away forever. I will be branching out past Columbus to other areas in Georgia and Alabama. I need to hear from you folks, your memories and stories will keep this site going!
HEIDI WYRICK HAS A NEW BOOK COMING OUT!
Our own Unsolved Mysteries Girl has a new book coming out in May! It is called The Veil. Many of you will remember Heidi Wyrick. She was the subject of an episode of Unsolved Mysteries and a two hour documentary called A Haunting In Georgia.
As a small girl Heidi made friends with Mr James Gordy, A man who owned a house and land near Heidi's home. Mr Gordy played with Heidi both inside and outside her home. The odd thing was Mr Gordy died years before Heidi was born! If you missed both television shows or just want to find out more, then don't miss this book! Information on The Veil can be found at:

GONE BUT NEVER FORGOTTEN
GONE AND GOOD RIDDANCE!
The next series of photos is dedicated to my partner in crime, Mom. No matter where I head off to she is right there riding shotgun. Mom had been on a relentless quest to find outhouse pictures for the Grandkids. She looked high and low, but up until June of 2003 her search was fruitless. She found these treasures in Jonesboro, Georgia. So rather than let her pride and joy go unseen by the masses, I thought I would post them here. Way to go Mom, you are truly an inspiration. You have shown us to never STALL in our search for something. Never let any one WIPE out our enthusiasm. And to always ROLL forward to our goals, no matter how POTTY, I mean Petty they may seem. Hats off to you Mom, URINE a class by yourself!!!
Our former Mayor, Bobby Peters, is running for Superior Court Judge. Mom and I ran into Mr Peters at a fair benefitting the Fire Department in Hamilton today. I asked Mr Peters if he would pose with mom for a picture for the site. He is now included in a kind of gallery that includes local celebrities posing with Mom. Mr Peters now joins Santa Claus and Smokey the Bear! I don't know about anyone else, but if I have to stand in front of a Judge, I just hope and Pray he is a good sport and has a sense of humor like Mr Peters! With the kind of trouble Mom and I get into we will need a Judge with those qualities. All kidding aside, Mr Peters would really appreciate the votes and support!
WHERE ARE YOU NOW??? THERE IS A NEW SECTION ON THE DO YOU REMEMBER PAGE CALLED WHERE ARE YOU NOW. THIS WILL BE A PLACE WHERE YOU ALL WILL HAVE A CHANCE TO LEAVE E MAIL ADDRESSES AND INFORMATION ON YOURSELVES. THIS CAN BE A GREAT WAY FOR RESIDENTS PAST AND PRESENT TO GET IN TOUCH WITH OLD FRIENDS OR MAKE NEW ONES! JUST E MAIL ME THE INFORMATION YOU WANT TO SHARE AND I WILL POST IT.
RECOGNIZE THIS PICTURE???
If you or anyone you know is in this picture, your former teacher, and a lot of others want to know. I will add a spot to the Do You Remember link to post old class pictures.If anyone is interested, just send a picture to me and I will post it to that site for everyone to look in on. Please include the year and School name. I will also list the names of those identified in the pictures. Even if you don't send one in, check in anyway. It may be YOUR class shown! < p>
Class of 1945 2nd & 4th grades Rosemont School Mr. White was principal
I am so excited. I have a new forum on Columbus Georgia on line. Please check it out when you can. People will be able to post topics and ask questions. I do a mystery picture for that site every Saturday http://www.columbusgeorgiaonline.com/index.htm
SPECIAL THANK YOUS
I have been doing this site for almost 2 years now and I have stated from the beginning that I could not do it without the help of everyone. In the last 2 years there have been some special people who have gone the extra mile to help me make this site grow. Below are just a few of the people I need to thank. I could never do this without their suggestions and ideas! These last two years have been so much fun for Mom and I.
MR VIC-Mr Vic has helped me out in so many ways, he has provided me with stories, info and pictures. I can tell him any thing. I consider him a good friend!
DEBY AND RANDY CROCKETT-God help the world if we two ever teamed up. Deby and Randy have provided me with stories, memories and a lot of moral support. I would say Deby is my right arm, but she is a lefty. Nobody is gonna mess with me while Deby is around. Randy is the level headed one. He might be bailing us out of trouble one day.
MR BOB-Mr Bob provides me with so many ideas for the memory section. That page would be half it's size if it were not for him! I have heard from so many people because of his memories and suggestions!
JERRY CAUGHRON-Ex local living in California. I owe so much to Jerry. I have a 1964 phone book that Jerry sent me. He will never know how much I have used it. Also, a slew of old Savannah post cards and other things. Jerry is a special person. One that I am truly grateful to.
JIMBO WILLIS-Nutcase supreme! Has gotten Mom and I lost as all get out on more than one occasion.
LYNDA ROSE-My 2nd technical advisor on nostalgia. Whenever I am unsure of something, I ask Lynda.
MIKE DUKES-Web master of Columbus georgia on line. He has done so much to help me on the Mystery Picture and putting me on his site. He also has his hands full putting up with me!
DONNA WALL-One of the first people I ever received e mail from. She has been with me from the beginning.
RON ROLLINS-My face hurts everytime I get around Ron. He loves to laugh and play as much as Mom and I do! "city Girl" or "Dammit Girl" owes him so much. He has truly taken me places I would never have gone on my own. I have had the Ticks and scratches to prove it!
LEEBO-My heart. He is constantly on the look out for things for me. He has also bought me three digital cameras since starting this site.
MOM-Last but not least, my partner in crime. She rides shotguun everywhere I go!
MY COUNTER GOT WIPED OUT ADD 8100 TO THE TOTAL BELOW!
