Cordley Elementary to celebrate 100th anniversary

After attending McAllaster Elementary for kindergarten through 4th grade, my family moved from Connecticut Street to 2235 East Drive Street. So then I started going to Cordley for 5th and 6th grades, 1959-1961. Mrs. Eleanor Mason was my 5th grade teacher, and Vernon Gilbert was my 6th grade teacher. We girls got a brief sex ed class with film that only confused the issue, sounding more like a geography lesson, mentioning the anatomical Islets of Langerhans, I believe, We also got a booklet on how to wear Kotex pads and how we shouldn't wear white or go swimming at a certain time of the month. We played on the playground and managed not to break our necks on the jungle gym and monkey bars--how, I don't know. The surface below was not padded, but was hard asphalt, I think. Dodge ball was a blast. We had Girl Scout meetings and close friendships. Sandy Keifer and I would go horseback riding on East 19th Street, where she lived. Roger Hemphill had some horses there as well, if I remember. Harrison Drugstore was close by, at 19th & Massachusetts. Eddie was the proprietor, and his son Stephen was my classmate. His older brother was Ken Harrison. Redheads. I think Steve has since passed. I hope the remodeling hasn't changed the look too much. It would be fun to see photos/videos of the centennial event, if those could be posted for those of us who can only attend in spirit.

Who was your favorite teacher?

My favorite teacher was Carol LeCompte, who became Carol Shankel. She taught Common Learnings at Central Jr. High. I learned to love geography, current events, and much more. She read books aloud to our class, such as "The Raft." Riveting! I attended CJHS from 1960 to 1963.

Sebelius decries culture of 'terror' surrounding abortion

There is no terror like being murdered in what should be the safest place--the womb. God forgive us for slaughtering more than 50 million boys and girls.
