ALLEN'S ALLEY Barney, ti~e taffy-colored pup, and I step from the house into an enchanted night. The heavy fog from the night before has frozen during the night onto everything it touche~. Now, it is a fairyland world with the trees a gleaming white =,,,I outlined against the dark lowering sky. Barney frolics ahead of me, investigating every nook and cranny. He is inexhaustable, ranging far ahead of me and stopping now and then to check on me and make sure I am following along. I am ~n no great hurry as I drink in the beauty of this night of fantasy. There is no traffic and I can't see another moving thing. It is as if the dog and I am alone. EarLier, I had talked to John and Charlotte Lindeey in Arizona. The connection was good and with my eyes shut I could almost believe they were in the same room. I first saw John Lindsey in August 1961 when I came from Vermont to go to work for him. There's been a hell of a lot of water go tmde~ the Third Street bridge since then. Right, Q? Well, Mr. Q is another story. That old boy is still around and we may meet again, although the old Third Street bridge has been gone many a moon. Still, the bridge on 585 could pinchh/t as a meeting place. In 1951, it was some chore to get from Vermont to Sundance, Wyoming. I rode the trains all the way - from the ornateness of the Toronto, Canada station to the fly-infested station in Lincoln, Nebraska. I climbed from the rods at Newcastle, shook my weary bones, and was immedla~ly accosted by a tall, lean individual with a crew cut. Seizing my hand in a grip of bone-crushing vigor, he introduced himself as John Lindsey. Glumly, I surveyed the wreckage of my right hand. I type now, as I always have, with my two forefingers. You can imagine the state of shock I was in when my new boss promptly cut my typing power in half. We climbed into a green Oldsmobile and soon I found myself streaking over the prairie with the mach meter indicating about 1800 miles an hour. John threw the anchor out at the Flying V and we had lunch and then on at breakneck speed to Sundance. I stroll briskly up the street, trying to keep the pup in sight. In 1961, Sundance was a far cry from what it is now. In the east, the old ranger ~ation was the frontier and in the south Neff Hoffme's house was the last outpost there. Coming up Cleveland from the east there was no Decker's, no Conoco, no Standard Oil, no Tschetter complex, no high school building, no new courthouse, no Tracy Meter Co., no Bear Lodge Motel, no Arrowhead Motel. Well, yon get the idea. On Main Street. there was no brick Odd Fellow lodge building, no Macy law office, no Security Insurance. The comer where the Tri-County .headquarters building stands was occupied by Bud Durfee's store - now the Episcopal parish hall. There was no new city hall, no new bank and post office, no new Durfee's building, no Hillside Pharmacy which rests on the site ~ccupied by the post office when I came here. There was no brick Crook County Memerial Hospital whe~ I canto here that long age day. No clinic, no mental health center, no soxmd assault center, no senior citizens center, no day care center, no kindergarten. I made a great many mistakes getting started in the newspaper business. I remember the summer nights when we worked late and we'd quit before nine and go to the old Sundance Pharmacy on Cleveland Street, where the Port building now stands, and have a milk shake before calling it a day. I owe a great deal to John Lindsey, who was patient with me and taught me a great deal about the newspaper business. In the old days, we made up the last four pages - including the front page - on Wednesday afternoon. I used to make up the first and last pages of the first section while John made up the other two pages. We made the pages up in the same place every week for 24 years and sometimes now when the world seems crazy and there is no rh .yme, no reason to life I go to that spot where I made up so very many front p~ges and I stand ther~ withmy hands.on the cool metal x~d try so very hard to remember howit was. ,~ There have been many changes in the last 34 years around here. It's been laughter and heartaches, triumph and tragedy, and it's still a great business to be in. I whistle to Barney, the taffy-colored pup. He comes to me, eyes shining and plume waving, and we go home together through the Sund~ce night.
