TENDING BAR AT THE CORNER Part 2 — Only at a Local Bar. The following anecdotes will guarantee that you are in a local bar. Quite often when I arrived to open the bar at noon on a Saturday or Sunday, some patrons would be waiting either in their vehicles or leaning against the outside of the building, not that I was running late but they were early.
These were the diehard locals. Not only the early arrivers but all the locals expected me to know the brand they drank without needing to tell me and to have the drink placed on the bar before they even sat down on their designated barstool. Some were actually quite indignant when I did not remember what they drank or even worse, disturbed when they knew I was not too concerned about remembering.
At the time, in our inventory, there were only a handful of different brands to select from, not the dozens of nationwide and craft beers that are now available.
I knew these were the locals and it would require more than not knowing what they drank to prevent them from returning the next day.
Some young couples brought their babies and young children along to spend quality time together. More than once I warmed baby bottles or occupied the children when the parents were distracted. Some of the locals liked to buy their beer by the case as a carryout. Other frequent patrons had a running tab whether they drank in the bar or purchased a carryout.
It was a local bar and we could accommodate the patrons in ways that other non-local bars could not. In my next article, I will relate a few specific and memorable happenings that I will remember forever. MY FORD PICKUP Part 2. The purchase of my new old pickup was the easiest part. At that point in time, the State of Kentucky required vehicle safety inspections for all vehicles.
For the average vehicle, no big deal, but for my pickup there were concerns. First and most obvious, there were no rear fenders. Even without being a mechanic, I knew this was a problem. Simple solution, cut a metal 55 gallon drum in half lengthwise, then slice into a width wide enough to cover the tires, weld them to the truck bed, done. The engine a flathead six cylinder with three speed on the floor ran fine once it started but starting it was the issue.
The starter did not work and at the time I was not willing to spend half the cost of the purchase price of the truck on a starter. My immediate and simple solution, always park it on a downhill grade when shutting off the engine. Our slanted driveway and hilly backyard were ideal parking spots for me to coast the truck and kickstart it by popping the clutch. Next up, the vehicle inspection.
Fortunate for me, Reitman Garage in Camp Springs was a certified inspection location. I knew them and they knew me. The truck passed the inspection, however, Johnny Reitman owner was curious why I kept the engine running during the entire inspection. I shrugged my shoulders, paid the fee and left. Now MY real work began, to mark the truck as mine. The entire bed was a solid black. With little thought, I decided to paint it, not simply a different color, but to portion it out into dozens of irregular amoeba-like shapes each painted a different color.
Her younger brother he was in grade school pleaded with me to help paint on it but I hesitated thinking that he may mess up my work of art. Not until my girlfriend his sister intervened did I cave in and allow him to paint shapes in spots where they would be least noticed in case he would mess up. The painting project ended in a colorful success. The truck came with 3-pointed spinner hubcaps which I removed since I envisioned them as a pending art project.
Later, I was able to hang them on display in the lobby of the Bank of Alexandria. Years later, I dismantled them and gave the hubcaps to Reitman Auto Parts after bargaining with them and allowing them to have them for nothing, another facet of my bargaining skills. She broke up with me when I was away in the Army, married another guy, divorced him, went back to dating, YADA, YADA, YADA!

Wow, did not see that coming. The first glance at it attracted me. The attraction was two-fold: I pulled over, performed a walk-around of the truck, raised the hood, checked to be certain that there was a motor, got back into my car and headed home.
Home was, of course, still living with my parents. Remember, I was only 20 years old and it was so much simpler to stay at home than to venture out on my own.
Actually, this continued to be my credo until I finally moved out at age I typically did not make snap decisions whether it be about moving out or a major purchase. However, I revisited Silver Grove Motors the next day and purchased the truck. My Ford Pickup continued. Most people do not realize that I bartended at the Corner Camp Springs Tavern for about two years. It was not the most highly visible or sought-after job.
He and his wife Wanda purchased the bar from Herb Steffen and lived on the second floor and rented out the third floor apartment. It was a local bar where obviously many of the locals hung out. Similar to other owners who live above their businesses, it was difficult for Frankie and Wanda to enjoy separating home and business life.
For a while it was difficult for me to understand their need to get away for a daytrip or an overniter but in time I came to realize that you need to get away periodically from your business. Many times during the daytrips or overniters I was the go-to bartender, not to mention weekends when others wanted time off from tending bar. My work days were usually weekends: Friday closing hours were about midnite or 1 a. Mind you, these approximate 30 hours per week were in addition to my 40 hours per week day job at Home Builders Association of Northern Kentucky, granted, I did not work every weekend at the bar.
Since I was not married the many hours did not conflict with any responsibilities as a husband but on the other hand it did little to enhance my social life. The Corner was not a prime hangout for young single girls although there were a few who would stop by and they automatically received my most courteous attention. In subsequent articles about the Corner, I will relate some amusing and unusual incidents that I either instigated or had no control over.

I had the perfect viewing location from our house on Four Mile Road. The time period was from 8 th grade through high school that I noticed them the most.
Traffic on Four Mile Road was considerably less than in subsequent years. This provided a relatively safe riding route. I can remember tossing baseball on the highway in front of our house and simply moving to the side when a car approached.
The horseback riding girls all appeared so attractive and they knew it. Most wore cutoff shorts with a t-shirt.
The more daring changed out the t-shirt for a bikini top and the most daring resorted to bathing suits for the enjoyment of the viewing audience.
From their perspective, this had only to do with remaining cool during the hot summer days on a hot sweaty horse and nothing to do with watching the young boys on the neighborhood parade route drooling as they rode by, HA! The majority of the girls rode bareback with only a few using saddles. Very few of the girls lived on farms. The horses varied in size from small ponies to quite large horses. Many times it appeared that the smallest were the most unruly.
Never being a horse person myself, they all were too large for me to imagine attempting to manage or control. There were more than a dozen girls who rode on a regular basis during the summer. Sometimes a new rider was seen with them. The names of a few of the regular riders were: Donna; Diane; Kathleen; Linda; Juanita; Sharon; Shelley; Shirley; Karen; Connie; Brenda and Joanie.
I had a crush on about half of them and a few years later followed up by asking only three of them on dates. A popular stop for the riders was the Camp Springs Ballpark. This was perfect for the boys who spent much of the summer playing scrub games there during the day. I am so thankful to all of these girls who helped me occupy those long hot days of summer with such a delightful country view. The event will feature fried fish, baked fish, fried catfish, salmon, deep fried shrimp, crab cakes, a sampler platter and several home-made desserts.

The year was 34 A. Stephen was pelted by stones and died a martyr for the strong beliefs in his faith. Fast forward-the year was A. Stephen, he lived to tell about it. The knothole catcher was always selected for the position by size rather than ability. Managers believed that the biggest kid garbed in oversized shin guards that never stayed snappeda chest protector that drooped below the knees not to forget the groin protector that extended long enough to touch the groundand a facemask that hung more like a gigantic wire necklace below the chin would miraculously morph him into the Johnny Bench of his day.
In appearance he appeared more like a hockey goalie than a catcher. The sight was the entertaining part. The reality was that he could barely move much less catch a pitch.
This therefore converted me the umpire into a human backstop. The pitch Each individual pitch was an event in itself. As oversized as the catcher was in comparison to the other players, the pitcher never seemed capable of spotting him as the target for his next pitch.
Wide left, wide right, high, in the dirt, this was the standard four pitch repertoire of every pitcher. Some would mix it up a little by switching the order of pitches that I just described.
The actual pitch more accurately, the throw was simply the start of a chain of incidents that occurred pitch after pitch after pitch. Find the ball was bellowed out by managers, coaches and fans. Is it under the catcher? Is it lodged behind his oversized chest protector?
Did it squibble to the backstop? It was lying harmless between the overdressed catcher and my bended knee. As time consuming as finding the missing ball after every pitch was, the return of the ball to the pitcher was even more of an event in itself.
Keep away from the pitcher. Seldom as the umpire and reluctantly, the person in charge did I wait for the catcher to realize that finding the ball, picking it up and returning it to the pitcher was at the forefront of his duties. After locating the ball sometimes needing to lift the catcher out of the way I threw it back to the pitcher in the air mind you, a big mistake, in the air. The pitcher had three choices as the ball was coming at him: Believe me, the first choice seldom happened and if it did, a round of cheers from the fans followed.
As the ball went past the pitcher, rolled over second base and trickled into centerfield the second baseman and shortstop were oblivious to all of this. Now the ball entered into the field of play of the centerfielder.
The sight and sound of the immense moving trains was not to be missed. It was then up to me to chase the ball down and this time ROLL it back to the pitcher with just enough force to have it stop at his feet and avoid a repeat of the entire dodgeball episode just described.
One pitch down and one hour and fifty minutes remaining in the two hour time limit per game. Speaking of limits, I think I have reached my space limit for this article. Discussion of players and their positions.
Watkins in Plainview, Minnesota. The company sold household products in the form of utensils, spices, soaps, vitamins, ointments, fly swatters and dozens of other items. Despite being a national company, their door to door salespeople found their way into rural America, even into the outreaches of Camp Springs, through the likes of Shulton, our local salesman.
I can use the term salesMAN in its most literal interpretation because never do I recall a female salesperson of any sort visiting our house. Shulton was an absolute unique person both to see and listen to.
By the way, the name Shulton was all that I ever knew him by. I am guessing that Shulton was his last name? His summer visits were what I remember most vividly, probably because I was at home on summer vacation from school and got to meet and listen to him using his sales pitch on my Mother.
It is easy for me to still envision him just as if he had visited our house yesterday. He was short in stature, extremely slim, long pointy nose and pale looking. Actually, he looked as though he needed to be consuming every health supplement that he was selling. Bespeckled and always dressed in a sportcoat or sweater, dress slacks, collared shirt with a long skinny necktie and topped with a hat, he was always in the same or similar attire. After his polite greeting, he would remove his hat revealing his thinning hair combed from front to back, just as my Dad combed his hair and just as I do now.
Growing up, I always swore that I would never brush my hair in that old-fashioned manner yet today I look in the mirror and guess what, I am my Dad. Oh yes, Shulton also sold combs and hair brushes. The sales arena was our back porch, with Shulton and my Mother seated at the picnic table that my Dad had made and that I still have today.
Shulton was the very politest of polite. It never failed that he needed to go back to his car to retrieve an additional product that might interest my Mother. This may have been his sales ploy to allow my Mother additional minutes to stew over potential purchases. He spoke in a herky-jerky speech pattern. It was almost as though he was suffering from asthma or shortness of breath and needed to grab a breath between short phrases. Being the insensitive pre-teen that I was at the time and also to display my ability with mimicry, I reveled in speaking to family members sounding as much like Shulton as I could.
My Mother would always purchase something and to this day, I sincerely believe that most of her purchases were made simply to help in his sales and believe me, our family did not have excess cash lying around to spend on unnecessary items but that was the kindness of my Mother showing.
Still love you Rie my Mother!

Attendees of the St. Joseph Summer Festival enjoyed clear skies and mild temperatures for this annual event "up on the hill" in Camp Springs, KY. Click here to see some photos. It was the Fall ofmy sophomore year at Bishop Brossart High School.
The Camp Springs Volunteer Fire Department members agreed it was time to replace the original 1, gallon tanker truck, a GMC. The department acquired its first brand new International fire truck in that same year two years after organizing in Thanks to the dedication and ingenuity of the department members, mind you, all volunteers, a used Sohio tanker minus the cab and chassis was purchased.
A Ford cab and chassis was bought to go with the tank. Fire department members performed body and mechanical work to prepare the tanker for service. Not to be overlooked, the inside of the tank needed to be coated to prevent rust. In its former life as a Sohio delivery tanker it carried five different fuels, each in a separate compartment.
The five individual tanks ranged from down to gallons in capacity for a total of 1, gallons. The three larger compartments posed no problem for the average sized fireman to crawl into and brush coat the tank walls with Rustoleum. As the youngest of four older brothers, all of whom were fireman, including my Dad, I was the obvious choice to be lowered into the two smaller tanks to do my brushwork.
Each compartment was capped with a lid not much different from a submarine hatch. The next to last compartment was extremely small but after brushing that one, I was lowered into the final one. It was so small that after finishing one side, I was hoisted out, turned around to face the unfinished side and lowered down again. Somehow, someway, I made it home that evening. Little did I know about the toxicity power of oil-based Rustoleum in a confined space.
All of this occurred on a school night. The next morning in first period Latin II class situated in my assigned front row seat no more than five feet from my instructor Fr. Hogan was all too concerned to learn what actually happened in Camp Springs that night before. I could not begin to give an answer to what really happened after I left the firehouse that prior evening. All I could surmise is being the conscientious student that I was, I attempted to complete my Latin assignment after my painting duty.

Visit Camp Springs Tavern on facebook: The major home delivery companies that served our community and come to mind first are: Vogelmann Bakery operated out of Newport, KY and was by far my favorite. Their rolls and pastries were the best. Many the summer day I spent sitting and waiting in the front yard for the bright orange truck to stop by.
The schedule was two weekdays per week and Saturday. As the truck came to a halt, the driver would stand, fold down the back of his seat, then pull out the long drawer that held the precious goodies. My usual order was either a half dozen rolls 29 cents or a dozen rolls 59 cents. Rolls smothered with caramel icing sprinkled with chopped nuts were my favorite. The bakery goods were so fresh that they fell apart as the driver scooped them out a half dozen at a time. Remember, this was after a trip from Newport with many stops along the way.
A special covered cake pan held them in a place of honor in the center of our kitchen table. All of this happened during my early years of grade school and I am sure it is when I currency trading forex trading chennai my craving for sweets that exists even to this day.
Clover Leaf Dairy also from Newport, KY was a regular visitor to our house. My favorite and most colorful driver was Gene Scales who always dressed so neatly in his dark green company uniform including an forex brokers with no deposit bonus 2016 style police-looking cap.
We grew up drinking a lot of milk. At some point I remember milk bottles being replaced by paper cartons. A handy dandy plastic holder with a handle imposition des stock options 2014 be purchased to assist in handling the carton. When we knew that we would not be at home on the delivery day, a paper note was taped to our door with the order on it.
There was always some kind of sales promotion going on. Of all the things, I remember most getting a pup tent for purchasing the required amount of dairy products in a limited number virtual stock trading game at pse weeks.
I am stock options finanziaria 2016 this is how I got my liking for milk and especially chocolate milk. The chocolate milk was almost like a dessert for us. In the early afternoons of Saturdays, employee Babe Schultz would call our house to take the weekly order.
Seldom did we miss placing an order. If nothing was needed on a particular Saturday, my Mother would place a note near the phone saying so. This way whoever answered the phone would know instantly that nothing was needed and avoid screaming all through the house for my Mother who would know. I always wanted her to place the order rather than me to avoid me somehow messing up the order and to eliminate additional questions from Babe.
These home delivery systems prospered for many years until their services were replaced by the proliferation of retail stores closer to home. Another death blow, in my opinion, was the advent of more licensed family drivers, in particular, stay at home Mothers who were then able to get out to the local stores. These were all truly unforgettable experiences that helped to shape my life and allowed me to meet some terrific people.

BIG TIME WRESTLING ON TV. Year round, except for summer, every Saturday afternoon meant watching Big Time Wrestling. Let me jog some of your memories as I did for myself in compiling the following list of regular wrestlers on the show.
Most names came back easily, scary to realize the kind of STUFF that is stored in my brain that comes to the forefront too easily. These characters are in no particular order. There were other contributors to the success of the show, one, namely, Bouncing Buehla. She was a weekly front row audience member in the live broadcasts. In appearance, she was somewhere between Granny and Miss Hathaway of the Beverly Hillbillies sitcom.
Her bouncing nickname was well suited due to her ringside antics, jumping, stock market options and futures and cheering for her favorite and not so favorite wrestlers. The live commercials were groundbreaking for the time period, remember, no remotes to click away from the commercials.
Willy Thaal local comedic celebrity and the Rinks Bargain City Kid, in real life, Hy Ulner, owner of locally-based Rinks Bargain City Department stores who together delivered one of a kind commercial vignettes. After holding up for display the for sale merchandise, they tossed it in the direction of the camera. Even though this was slapstick in its simplest form, they raised it to a higher level. Things such as lawn chairs, garden hoes and even bulkier pieces were the best, even lawnmowers.
It never failed that during at least one of the commercial breaks, one or more wrestlers would meander onto the commercial set and create even more havoc. Of course, it was always the craziest, wackiest wrestlers who joined the fun but they were always mean-spirited and the Rinks Bargain City Kid and Willie Thal at least acted scared. So proud to be able to say that I witnessed the origins of the WWF through the local broadcasting of Big Time Wrestling, not to mention a piece of history!

The one cannot exist without the other. If there is no pitcher, the game cannot begin, if there is no catcher, the game cannot continue. The pitcher basically had the entire infield within the base paths to claim as his territory. It was always a dead giveaway that the pitcher had lost his pitching hole again when the umpire glared out at him from behind home plate to see him staring at the ground looking to the right, to the left, then in front and then behind, searching for that elusive mark in the ground.
The catcher, on the other hand, had a distinct advantage over the pitcher in locating his defensive position, simply known as home plate. That being said, there was still nothing to prevent him from wandering left or right.
The position of the umpire usually kept him from scooting farther and farther away from home plate. One of the most amusing sights was to see the catcher lined up directly behind the batter looking like his shadow which converted the umpire into the only real TARGET for the pitcher to aim at. The remaining infielders, not including fundraising money makers shortstop, had a physical object to use as a locator just like the catcher with home plate.
Many kids, only understanding the most literal interpretation of playing first base, played standing on first base itself. The second baseman played second base, standing on second base and likewise for the third baseman. Usually by mid-season, managers had successfully convinced the first, second and third basemen to venture at least one giant step away from their respective bases. A follow-up problem resulted in the first and third basemen now playing in foul territory. Speaking of the first baseman, many managers subscribed to the practice of allowing him cmc binary trading stand on first base exception to the rule.
This avoided shouts from managers and fans alike to cover first base for a possible play as the batter turned runner was approaching first base. Many times there was ample time to cover first base even without standing new stock option ticker symbols it as some batters became disoriented and headed down the third base line rather than the first base line.
To finish the infield positions, the shortstop was a real anomaly. He had no base named after his position. His position was situated half-way between second and third base. Obviously, the shortstops that I saw had not yet studied fractions in school. One half was one of those undefined places on the whole number line of integers. Now to the outfielders. Through no fault of their own, many novice outfielders found it difficult to even feel like a part of the team not to broker reviews 2016 optionraiiy on binary options participating in the game.
Physically, they were placed what seemed to be miles away from any baseball action. Of the three outfield positions, the centerfield position could be the hub of activity if only to chase down errant tosses from the catcher back to the pitcher. I need to mention also, that usually the centerfielder needed to be alerted that there was a ball coming in his direction.
First getting and then keeping the attention of the three outfielders was a constant chore. One unspoken but shared strategy among managers was to be certain that the pile of dirt that they were playing with was positioned between the player and home plate. The batter and on-deck batter. Similar to the infielders, it was a challenge to have the batters understand that they need not physically stand ON home plate. After the batter relented and agreed to move off the plate, this resulted in another troubling situation, on which side of the plate?
Where is the on-deck batter? All teams had a minimum of two assistant coaches. Their duties were varied and one was to have the on-deck hitter ready for his appearance at the plate. The first issue was to FIND him. Was he at the concession stand? Was he watching the game with spectator friends who were not even players?
Locate a batting helmet, not what we know today as binary options strategy is 777 helmet, more about this piece of gear at a later date.

New Year's greetings to all! THE UNITED NATIONS CAME TO CAMP SPRINGS IN THE SIXTIES…. BY Lissy Plattner [PUBLISHED DECEMBER 28, ]. The United Nations was created to bring all nations of the world together to discuss issues and problems that each nation had, and to solve those issues with peaceful and permanent solutions. It was an ultimate goal to create a greater understanding among people of all nations. But ideally is often a work in progress. So Irma and Jerry Futscher decided to put the plan in action in their own community.
Through friendship with a neighboring convent, the Sisters of the Divine Providence, they learned of a family of a doctor in Camargo, Mexico who wanted their children to learn English and to also learn how people in another part of the world lived. James, Jorge, Jose and Pepe and other family members.
They were taught English, customs and cultures, and obtained a well-rounded education from the fine teachers, friends, relatives and family. All the while, the community also welcomed the new visitors and treated them as their own children. Great lessons in sharing values and a sense of belonging were a common theme.
From the letters that Irma kept over the years, again and again the families in Mexico expressed their gratitude for the little United Nations on Four Mile Pike.
One wrote "I am your son, you are my brother, my friend.

Sometimes large and important ideas are picked up and carried forward by individuals who see a bold future in living and learning together. If this is so, Irma Futscher, Jerry and their children personified the humanitarian ideal of the United Nations. Perhaps, then, one day, we will each give meaning to our own lives by claiming the world as our neighbor and friend.

Petition Drive Underway [PUBLISHED JULY 29, ] In the midst of SD1's recent announcement of their Board of Directors to proceed with the Ash Street project, Camp Springs residents have begun a petition drive to halt it. Here's a recent communication from Ash Street project opponent Anna Zinkhon: All too often we hear people complaining about injustices.
While we are all busy and sympathetic, there just doesn't seem like there is anything we can do directly to cause change. I would like to offer you a simple task to help regular people protect their homes and business from unregulated utility.
The residences of Camp Springs have been learning and challenging plans for a Forced Main Sewer pipeline for over four years. This pipeline does not bring any new services to anyone in Camp Springs. But it does bring sewer smells, potential for sewer spillage and an easement which will hinder our access and usage of our farm land for ever!
We will also lose many trees and change the look and feel of our community. Many of you live in towns that have ordinances protecting the look and feel of your town. You choose to live in these places the same as we choose to live in our community. The big difference is we are not a city. We do not have infrastructure and all of our needs are taken care of by each individual property owner.
Camp Springs is one of the only living museums in the state of Kentucky! And we have done this on our own! No one else pays for this care and attention. So why should our land be taken to support others way of life? I have attached a petition. If each of you got your family members and co-workers to sign this petition, you will help educate others about our situation. Please Mail signed petitions to me. It will also help us in Imminent Domain Court. There are several people running for office who support our situation.
Ask the candidates or call me and I would be happy to discuss details. Public outcry is powerful. The laws were intended to protect our rights. I hope you can give us just a little help, it will be very powerful!

It was during my Sophomore year in high school that my umpiring career began in the Campbell County Rural Knothole Baseball League. At the time I was in my second and final year as a player in Class A baseball of the same Knothole League and thereby allowed me to umpire only two games in the mornings as our Class A games were always scheduled for 3pm. In my Junior year in high school, too old to continue playing knothole baseball, I turned my attention to umpiring full time, that is four games every Saturday 9, 11, 1 and 3 p.
This appeared to be my best career choice at the time. Most often I was scheduled at the Silver Grove Community Field, not certain why. Frequently I was dropped off at the field by my older brothers Ervin and Vern while on their way to work at West Side Savings Bank in Newport. Other times my Dad would chauffeur me to the field and a few times I rode my bike from home. If a ride home was needed at the end of the day, my Dad or another member of the family picked me up.
More about our family cars in a future story. My normal schedule assigned me to Class C or Class D games but occasionally a Class B game. The reason for the younger groups was that many of the players in Class A and some in Class B were nearly my size and that could intimidate a young kid umpiring and fortunately the umpire organizers understood that. There was only one umpire per game unless it was a championship game. Mind you, that was for approximately eight hours of work and usually partly in the hot afternoon sun.
In my estimation, umpiring is not unlike being a teacher. You must always be in charge, be on your toes and alert every moment, know as best you can the ground rules, anticipate what will happen next and expect feedback from parents. This experience did assist me to prepare for one of my future careers as a teacher. Part II — The game itself. JOSEPH OPEN HOUSE TONIGHT, MAY 1 6: JOSEPH TO OFFER PRE-K St. Joseph Elementary in Camp Springs will now be offering Pre-kindergarten to 3 and 4 year olds.
Open Enrollment is underway. The program will include 5 full days each week and is limited to 14 students. Joseph in Camp Springs is the oldest, continuously operating school in the Diocese of Covington. Irma was a homemaker, charter member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Camp Springs Volunteer Fire Department and a lifetime member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Campbell County VFW Post No.
Irma's grandson, Mark Ramler wrote and delivered her eulogy at her service at St. Joseph Church on April We are publishing it here in it's entirety: On behalf of the entire Futscher family, we would like to say thank you for all of your love and support over the past few days, and the past few months. We would also like to thank each and every one of you for the role that you had in my grandmother's life. Everyone gathered here tonight is truly a testament to the wonderful person she was, and I'm sure she is smiling down on us right now.
Over 60 years of my grandmother's life was spent right here in Camp Springs, but she was a city girl by birth and grew up in Newport. She would love telling stories from her childhood. Stories of the '37 flood when she was home sick with the mumps, and how she could see the Ohio and Licking Rivers from her window.
She had stories of how during the Depression, they would get extra cottage cheese from Trauth Dairy, or how they would collect coal that fell off trains in Newport to heat their homes. Stories of riding the Mt. Adams incline up to the art academy with her brother and sister. Or how she worked at the very first Kroger Store on Monmouth Street, and then later as a teller at the American National Bank.
She had stories of getting a new shoes and a bike when her great aunt passed, and stories of bike rides out to the country. And it was one of those long bike rides out to the country with Iva and Delores actually it was a car ride with Delores' parents who were in a band that played at Pete's Place that they ended up at Pete's Place in Melbourne, where she met a young and handsome Jerry Futscher, and her heart would be drawn out to Camp Springs. Now granted this was not the easiest of communities to break into, but coming from a solid German family, and with a good sense of humor, she was quick to make some lifelong friends, begin a family, and destined to become a pillar of this community.
My grandmother always had a smile on her face, and was always quick with a joke or a witty remark. I think this was her 'Schmidt wit', and fortunately, or unfortunately, this 'Schmidt wit' has been passed down to most of the family here today.
Out of her 60 plus years in Camp Springs, some of the most significant events of her life took place right in this very church. This place is more than just a brick building; it's a sacred place for the Futschers, and so many more families in Camp Springs.
In this very room, on this altar, under the same sunlight shining through these stained glass windows, Irma Schmidt married Jerry Futscher in and started a beautiful life and family together. On that day, they were surrounded by family and friends, and some of them, or at least their descendants, are here with us right now. And it was in this church, on this altar that they baptized their first daughter, Janet, in Then Susie came along in 53, Sharon in 54, Danny in 56, then Dougie trailed along in All of them were baptized right here, and welcomed into a loving family, and a very close nit community.
My grandmother was not born Catholic, but it was in this very church she entered into the Catholic faith. She received her first communion at the same time as her first daughter Janet, so that she could celebrate the sacraments with her children and grow alongside them in their faith. She was also confirmed in this church alongside Janet and Susie. Just a few steps away, she ran the kitchen for Summer Church Festivals, cooking thousands of chicken and roast beef dinners, and feeding the masses.
And it was in this church where she attended countless PTA meetings, school events, and was even a scout leader for Dougie. And if I'm not mistaken, Dougie can probably still fit in that scout uniform. And it was in this church, back in '68 that my grandparents volunteered to host a Mexican exchange student, Jaime. Which then led to Jorge, Jose Luis, and Pepe, and a lifelong friendship with the Ibarras in Camargo.
I'm proud to say my grandparents established the very first United Nations of Camp Springs at Box 42 Four Mile Road. It was in this church where she celebrated dozens of Easters, Christmas' and hundreds of Sunday masses in between. All three of her daughters were married here in this church, surrounded by family and friends. And she watched as all of her children would begin their own lives and families based on the solid upbringing by her and my grandpa. Just down the hill, she was a charter member of Ladies Auxiliary at the Camp Springs fire department and she was also a charter member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Alexandria VFW.
She logged countless volunteer hours with the Auxiliaries, giving back to her community and her church whenever and however she could, and was very proud of everything they did. Along with their own 5 children, and the Mexicans, my grandparents took in other children over the years and Irma mothered them as well. She was well known to the community as 'Mom Futscher'.
They were always welcoming with open arms, and grandma was ready to throw another 'potato in the pot' for whoever was staying with them at the time. What's one more mouth to feed? There was a lot of love in that small cape cod on Four Mile. In the years after the children all moved out, her and grandpa settled into retirement, and enjoyed a few leisure years.
Between her crocheting, bowling leagues, weekly bingos, and cheering on her beloved Cincinnati Reds, they managed to welcome 9 grandchildren into their lives, and spoil them like grandparents should. I know we all have so many fond memories of grandma and grandpa Futscher's on Christmas Eve, or Easter egg hunts on the back hill, or counting cars from their porch swing.
Those were great years and great memories. And it was in this church, surrounded by family and friends, where we stood by her side in '98 as we said goodbye to Grandpa Jerry, her loving husband of 47 years. In the years since, life gradually slowed down, but those years came filled with additional blessings. The joys of watching her grandchildren grow into adults, attending graduations, weddings, Christmases, Easters, and welcoming great-grandchildren, whom she adored.
And it is in this church today, surrounded by loving family and friends, that we are celebrating the life of Irma Futscher, and the wonderful person that she was. She was truly a pillar of this community, and her impact on all of our lives is immeasurable. She lived a long and full life with many blessings, and we are forever grateful for the love and blessings that she gave to each of us.
Irma was preceded in death by her husband, Jerome "Jerry" Futscher; her parents, Louis and Irene Guenther Schmidt; and a brother, Glenn Schmidt.
