My mother Sylvia Reeves was going with Clude Harvie and had a child with him in 1959.

I lived with Clyde when he owned a bar in Fairbanks. He had a bar under the hotel that burned down in 56-57.
My half brother is Clyde's son. She also went with Johnny Homethko when he ran Club 11. As a kid I lived in apartments built under the Club. As far as I know Clyde Harvie was killed in a car wreck in California- I don't know if this is accurate.

Default Clyde Harvie

I'm a novice on this sight which I found while trying to research a bar that Clyde Harvie owned in Fairbanks in the 56-58 era. It burned down during that period. My mother was going with Clyde and had a son by him in 1959. Her name was Sylvia Reeves. She also went with Johnny Homethko when he was running Club 11
My name is Larry Reeves would love to talk about my childhood in Fairbanks from 1956-1958.
We lived with Clyde in the last house on the left as you come from town on Noble Street.
My email address is lrreeves1@live.com telephone 541 733 6284 any information would be appreciated.

Polaris Building.

So, Fairbanksians, what is the story on the Polaris building? Seems a pity to junk what was once one of two
modern apartment buildings in the heart of Fairbanks. Now, of course, they are no longer all that modern, but still.....

The words is...?

+rwjoyak "One of the strip clubs downtown (Bare Affair) used to give us 10 free pitchers of beer, win or lose, no matter how many of us made it down to the place after a game."

I used to perform in a band that played at the Bare Affair.

My Aunt Janie was a fixture in Fairbanks. She did travel to Florida via cross-country motorhome trip every year. We loved her. I think she ran a gun range with her husband at one point. I believe her kids are still there. Her kids would be probably in their 70s.

Maiden name Bailey. I have to look up her married name, sorry. Anyone who knew her would have recognized the description, I think. Quite a character. I'll post her married name.

There are many American cities that I have visited repeatedly, in the last 20-25 years. Everywhere from Miami to Bangor Maine, and San Diego to Fairbanks. Of all those, Fairbanks stands out for a giving me an odd, but good feeling. It's considerably more "sanitized" then when I first visited, years ago, with all the usual trapping of corporate USA, new Walmart, chain restaurants and stores from the outside, and new construction everywhere. But one thing always stuck about first seeing Fairbanks, decades ago. It not only looked like it had some real rough edges in years past, but you could feel somehow it were just barely covering up a colorful, and wild era, full of characters and stories that still left some of the locals shaking their heads and smiling.

I've had the same feeling is some old small towns in the western plains, and even Whitehorse. I can't imagine how rough and entertaining some of those places were a hundred years ago, or even in the 1950s.................

I played music at the Keyboard Lounge from December 1966 until May of 1967. The band was called the Beau Gents. I brought up a trio I knew from my home town, Salinas, CA in 1967 and we played that club 7 nights a week from 10 pm until 5 am. Was the coldest winter I ever lived. The band was myself on Hammond B3, Jim Monigold, Harvey Chaffin and Tim (Beau) Powell. All except for myself have passed away. From there I played Whitehorse, Ketchikan, Haines, Petersburg and ended up in Juneau where I played the Anchor Room for years while working for KINY radio and television. I moved to Nashville in 1973 and still play some music, Playing piano on some dates with Country Music Hall of Fame Member, Bobby Bare. My regular job for the past 35 + years is the Radio Promotion Company I run called Bill Wence Promotions...you can find me on the web and on facebook. What a time I had playing in Alaska for over five years. It was an experience of a lifetime, Bill Wence [email]billwencepro@earthlink.net[/email]
