The energy needed for an impromptu parade would seem hardly worth the efforts to adults on these hot summer days, but it's a different story with the younger set. About 20 youngsters in the Kenwood Ave. area dressed up in costume, decorated their bicycles and marched around the neighborhood. Despite all the convention activity this week, the parade apparently had no political overtones.

Legacies Project Oral History: Jacqueline Heubel

Wed, 01/15/2020 - 10:10am

Jacqueline Heubel was born in 1930 in Fond du Lac Wisconsin in the midst of the Great Depression. When her father regained his job on the railroad, her family moved to Eagle Grove, Iowa. She attended Iowa State Teacher's College and the University of Minnesota School of Dental Hygiene. After a few years working as a dental hygienist, she returned to teaching. Huebel taught in the Pontiac School District during the Civil Rights Era, and recalls the effects of integration on teachers and students.

Jacqueline Heubel was interviewed by students from Skyline High School in Ann Arbor in 2008 as part of the Legacies Project.

CLEANUP RESULTS IN UNIQUE VEHICLE: This is what happens when people clean out their basements for spring trash pickup, or at least what happened when City Attorney Peter W. Forsythe of 1205 Olivia cleaned his last weekend. The basement treasures, two tricycles and a toy tractor, were welded together to make room for his four children and a friend. Riding the "silly bike" as the children call it, are from left, Linda Forsythe, Carl Wolf, David Forsythe, Martha and Jim Forsythe. No attempt to patent the vehicle has been reported.
