Even though we’re two days early, I want to wish Bill Jones a Happy 91st Birthday! He had his friends and family a bit worried by his recent trip to the hospital with chest pains. I just got off the phone with him and I’m glad to report that he’s feeling better and seemed his usual jovial self. He’s in rehab at the former county hospital (now BJC) today. Bill, I know your fans at Maplewood History would all wish you to get well and return home as soon as possible. To our readers, “Angel’s Car” was written while he was in the hospital with help from his wife, Barb. We don’t often get to hear stories like this one. It’s a treasure as is he. DH
Last week Doug Houser gave you a rundown on who Ted Lazarcheff was. Ted was important in my life. He owned the northwest corner of Flora at Big Bend and had a bar/restaurant on the northwest corner of Flora.
