- When I was young in the mid 60's we would take the rapid train from 150th station to public square and watch the parade, sitting o newspapers on the curb. Then we would take a yellow cab to sterlinds to see the x-as tree, wow! That was the highlight! Then on to playhouse square to dinner at to stouffers restaurant for dinner. Great times, great town!

- Last year, our family returned to Cuyahoga Falls from Berlin for the Holidays. I was surprised and very pleased to learn Mr. Jingeling was at Stan Hywet Hall, so I took my wife Silke and son Teddy to out to meet him (and visit Stan Hywet, of course). Trying to be witty, I said "Why Mr. Jingeling, I haven't seen you in 50 years." He smiled and replied "Really, it seems like just yesterday." And indeed it was.

- My favorite recent Christmas memory was of the wonderful hanging displays that hung for so many years from the ceiling of the Tower City Atrium. I have never received any answer about why they could not be repaired and used for Christmas. Tower City is not the same without them.
