'' WESTWOOD AREA OF ASHLAND,KENTUCKY''

REMEMBERING THE BIG OLD RED BRICK TWO STORY SCHOOL BUILDING OF FAIRVIEW GRADE SCHOOL,WHERE THE FAIRVIEW HIGH SCHOOL NOW STANDS.I STARTED SCHOOL THERE IN 1944,"W.P.RENFROE", WAS THE PRINCIPAL,BEATRICE LOWE,SCHOOL NURSE AND OFFICE HELP,IRENE MILLER(PRICE)WAS MY FIRST GRADE SCHOOL TEACHER,SHE WAS A GREAT TEACHER,I RECALL SHE HAD MY FRIEND PEGGY JO KEETON AND I BOTH SET ALL DAY AT OUR TABLE IN CLASS,WITH OUR FEET ON TOP OF TABLE ,AS WE HAD DECIDED TO PUT OUR FEET THERE AND LEAN BACK IN OUR CHAIRS,BECAUSE WE DID NOT THINK SHE WOULD NOTICE.

IN 1945 THE REV CARROL CAUDILL ,TOOK OVER AS PRINCIPAL.AS W.P.RENFROE RETIRED.REV CAUDILL AND HIS WIFE STARTED THE CAFETERIA AT FAIRVIEW,SO WE COULD ALL HAVE HOT LUNCHES.THEY HAD EXCELLENT HOT PLATE LUNCHES,OR YOU COULD GET HOT DOGS,HAMBURGERS,CHEESE BURGERS,BAR.B.Q'S,CHILLI OR A BOWL OF HOT VEGETABLE SOUP.THEY ALSO STARTED A SNACK BAR WHERE THE STUDENTS COULD BUY,POTATOE CHIPS,CANDY BARS, AND ANY KIND OF POP.RUTH LYKINS WAS MY SECOND GRADE TEACHER,HER HUSBAND.REV GARDENER LYKINS.WAS THE PASTOR OF FAIRVIEW MISSSIONARY BAPTIST CHURCH,THAT STOOD WHERE THE WESTWOOD FIRE DEPARTMENT IS LOCATED NOW.

MRS NANCY CLAY(McCLURE)WAS MY THIRD GRADE SCHOOL TEACHER MRS GARNET COOKSEY (PRICE)WAS MY FOURTH GRADE TEACHER. MISS GOLDIE QUEEN WAS MY FIFTH GRADE TEACHER,HER FATHER CORNELIUS QUEEN,WAS THE SHERIFF OF BOYD COUNTY AT THAT TIME. MISS REBECCACAUDILL(HAEBERLIN)WAS MY SIXTH GRADE TEACHER, ALL OF THE ABOVE TEACHERS WERE SOME OF THE VERY BEST TEACHERS A CHILD COULD EVER WANT TO HAVE.

I REMEMBER IN THE SCHOOL YEAR OF 1947 ,MY BROTHER LON CASTLE JR.AND RITA COLE, DAUGHTER OF MR & MRS ED COLE ,WERE CROWNED THE KING AND QUEEN OF FAIRVIEW GRADE SCHOOL.IN THE SECOND GRADE.

WE NEVER HAD SCHOOL BUSES TO RIDE TO SCHOOL,WE ALL HAD TO WALK TO SCHOOL.REMEMBER WALKING MANY TIMES TO SCHOOL IN SNOW STORMS AND DEEP SNOWS ,WE HAD TO WALK UP HILLS AS WE LIVED ON UNRUE STREET TO SCHOOL.IT WAS HARD GETTING UP THE HILLS WITHOUT FALLING IN THE SNOW AND ICE,BUT COMING HOME I ALWAYS GOT IN TROUBLE ,AS WE WOULD SLIDE DOWN THE HILLS,GOING HOME IN SNOW COVERED CLOTHING AND SOME TIMES FROZEN CLOTHES.SCHOOL WAS NEVER DISMISSED DUE TO BAD WEATHER,AS SCHOOLS ARE TODAY. I ALSO REMEMBER THE BARBOUR AND HAMERICK GROCERY STORE,THE THOMPSONS HAD A GROCERY.CRATE TILSON ALSO OPERATED A GROCERY STORE,FARTHER OUT ON MAIN STREET CORNER OF BUCKLEY ROAD A COUSIN PERRY YOUNG OWNED THE PERRY YOUNG MARKET.THEN DOC OSBORNE ,AS HE WAS KNOWN TO ALL OPENED THE OSBORNE DRUG STORE.AND ICE CREAM SHOP AND FOUNTAIN.REMEMBER THE BLUE RIBBON BUS LINES WERE OUR TRANSPORTATION TO TOWN,LATER BECOMING OHIO VALLEY BUS LINES.
