ECBWWWB IV: reminds Peggy Fudge of ACN, Donnie's days
John "Duck" Fudge ran Donnie's Drive-In for a while. and ECBWWWB IV elicited other precious memories from childhood, including a fascinating place for a your girl growing up at the Adair County News: I remember Bill Downs at the Linotype, Orley and Forrest (if memory hasn't failed) on the big press in the back, and Louis DeRossett running in and out, often with his big camera, on his way to or from a breaking story, or human interest item. It was a fascinating place for a kid, PEGGY FUDGE writes with more than a hint of a wonderful book we can only encourage her to write one day
By Peggy Fudge
Great history refresher, but can anyone provide pictures? BTW, my dad, John "Duck" Fudge, ran Donnie's Drive-in for a while.
Also, over the years, he ran a couple of pool rooms, where his chili became popular, and twice he had a bakery.
People still talk about his doughnuts, and yes, I have the recipe.
Mom worked at the old Adair County News, which was in the corner between Nell's Variety and Wooten's.
I remember Bill Downs at the Linotype, Orley and Forrest (if memory hasn\'t failed) on the big press in the back, and Louis DeRossett running in and out, often with his big camera, on his way to or from a breaking story, or human interest item. It was a fascinating place for a kid. --Peggy Fudge
