  • David, thanks for the great pictures of Main Street Church of Christ and the 1971-72 Wartrace Panthers Boys Basketball team.

    I believe that the house next door to the church was the parsonage but I can not be sure about that. I also believe that Dr. Methvin's office was either one or two doors past that house. His office was almost across from the old DREMC offices.

    As for the traffic signal, I can not be sure. I think that it was a red-green signal in my memory. I do know that I stopped at that intersection many, many times. It seems to me that the flashing lights (like the one at the entrance of the hospital on Union) were only 1 lens in each direction, with the yellow (slow down and proceed with caution) facing the main thoroughfare, and the red (stop and proceed with caution) facing the side streets. Again I can not be definite about this.

    In the basketball picture I only recognize William Christie.

  • David, Joey Fults' name was left out. He is the person holding the basketball.
