Re: Road Lake history? Does anyone have any info, pictures?

I just heard form David Koske and I was correct, he did play for Road Lake. But it was Bobby Carl, not Rod Grille (sp?) that I was thinking of. Carls opened a night club where the Road Lake Bar used to be and it was a hopping place back in the 60's and 70's from what I understand. I do remember havi...

Re: Road Lake history? Does anyone have any info, pictures?

I can't believe you have not gotten some replies yet. I only have vague memories going back well over 30 years but I'll try to prime the pump for you. If memories severs me right, there used to be a rather popular bar at or near Road Lake back in the 60's. Didn't the Grilles(sp?), Sandy and Rod live...

Best ressorts in the area.

Well, if everyone went around with 44 Magnum strapped to their side... I bet public civility and politeness would improve. Not to mention purse snatches would probably go down.

How high the tax is not near as interesting as the hypocrisy of it. The biggest proponents of the tobacco tax are the same people that claim to be the champions of the poor people. How ironic is it that it is a well-documented fact that the tobacco tax hits these very same poor people the hardest. I...

Bradley Park used to be a wonderful place for vacationing campers. Back in the 60's there were families that came every year to the same camp site and stayed for a week or two.

Buying and selling anything is not all that difficult.
