Drab fall colors on the way?Posted Friday, November 9, 2007, at 12:43 PM
This week's Friday Five:
*Looks like we're going to have a somewhat-drab fall, at least if it can be judged by one particular tree.
Each year there's a large tree in a home on Glenoaks Road at Burning Tree Road that breaks out into a gorgeous bright orange.
This year it's sort of a muted, dark orange. Maybe it'll brighten up and prove me wrong. But somehow I doubt that'll happen.
*Newsroom discussion: How do you pronounce pecans? Pe'can's or pe'con's?
*Does any Titan fan really miss Pacman Jones? Seems like they're doing fine without him.
*It doesn't seem like Colloredo Boulevard's been around for over 20 years; people complain about the traffic light at North Main Street like it's something recent.
I've been taking some quick looks back at some Times-Gazettes from years past afer realizing I don't remember the exact years a few local events occurred.
I found a photo I'd shot of a 1986 traffic accident on Colloredo. Time goes by...
*Old buildings going...going...gone: The building next to the laundromat on South Cannon Boulevard, which housed a union hall for much of existence, is being demolished.
Looks like one of the remaining older homes on North Main Street, near Doak-Howell Funeral Home, will be the next to go.
Shelbyville's sure changing lately. Drive down North Main or even Madison Street and imagine what was in each building's location, or what existing buildings housed, and it's apparent we're a different city in many ways.
I'm for progress, but it's nice to sometimes look back.
