Greetings from little California down the river! Isn't much changed and that opinion probably works even if you haven't been there for twenty years.

Guess a used car lot is going in where the feed store was so that's a plus. The beer distributor is for sale, Paul's Body Shop sold out and is now a storage place, the old tire shop's still open. Coal train's still run through, swear they know when I need to get across the bridge as their timing is amazing.

The town still suffers from being connected to Brownsville, at least via the school system. That makes real estate a tough sell unlike Blainesburg which is connected to the California district.

The big hope is the Wal-Mart coming into the area on the hill, off four-lane route 40. That would change things quite nicely. But to do that, all the river towns on that side have to get an agreement on water and sewage and that's moving as fast as maple syrup on a South Pole morning.

That's it, check back in twenty years or so for an update.

I thought West Brownsville was getting a sewer system. Has that not happened yet?

I know it isn't the locks that flood over,it is the river,but just as well,I hope it doesn't happen.I have seen the aftermath one too many times.As long as the Vol.Fire Hall and the American Legion stay open I will still have a place to drink when I visit in the spring.

There's a house for sale on Water Blvd, just down from the beer distributor. The telephone pole in front has markers for all the floods. I'm six feet even and the highest marker tops me by a few feet. But so far so good, nothing even over the banks this year.

Yep, Dukman's has been for sale for quite some time now, no takers though as far as I know.

this goes out to the person calling them selfs DAWGPOUND. Water Blvd. is in the flood zone so I'am sure every one wants to buy that 'goodie'.
As Far as Dukmans with your intelligence you think you would know that some business sell the name with the sell of a business so real smart people like you know nothing other than were the local water wholes are so why not do your home work before you put your foot in you're mouth as always .
IT's CALLED WET BRAIN ,LOOK IT UP I HAVE A FEELING THATS WHAT YOU WOULD HAVE TO DO. On your next visit I have a felling your name must be Levi Almost a Know IT ALL
