My first concert at Market Square was either Aerosmith or Allman Brothers I'm not sure which in about 1976 or 77 and I saw Mellencamp 2 or 3 times there.

At age eight or so, I went off the high-dive board at a public pool. ONCE. I got up there, looked down and decided to head back to solid ground.

Unfortunately, other swimmers were already climbing up the ladder behind me, so I had no real choice but to jump.

It was terrifying .....

It certainly has changed alot- unfourtunatly not for the best-I grew up on the eastside around 10th and post from early 1960s til i moved out in the early 1980s.It was great back then-Gee I wonder what happened?

10th and post is still great...for me. I live in the area bordered by franklin to the east post to the west and washington and 10th north south. Still not a bad area at all. Lots of families with kids....I do miss the flakey jakes though.

I don't know how far back you go,but do you remember the Shaws Drugstore and the A&P at Boehning and 10th? Then there was Bells Pharmacy(with a soda & ice cream fountain) across the street along with a hardware store and Moores Market.Moores had an old coke machine with 6oz cokes for 5 cents.Those were the days.
