Picturing the Past 62: Bethany LanePosted Tuesday, May 25, 2010, at 12:05 PM
I'm assuming this is Shelbyville's mayor or city manager in this 1952 photo of Bethany Lane. (T-G file photo)
Bethany Lane is a prime example on how much one city can change in 60 years. Drive it today and you'll pass older homes -- one log cabin was there at one time, with a newer home built around it -- modern businesses and several newer apartment buildings. Quite a change from the gravel road of the early 1950s.
Here are the 1969-70 Wartrace Pantherettes as photographed by the Times-Gazette in the fall of 1969. Kneeling, from left, are Nancy Potts, Debby Vincent, Brenda Floyd, Mary Keele, Cynthia Shirley, Claudia Hawkins and Betty Edde. Standing, from left, are managers Kay Tribble and Bobbie Grubbs, Pam Hawkins, Rhonda White, Susan Grubbs, Cheryl McMahon, coach Hal Skelton, Jimmie West, Vickie Potts, Bessie Redd, Sara Jane Walker, Joanna Walker and Sandy Keele.
