    You may be able to find the obit from a link here, but you’ll probably have to pay.

    Thanks for the link John. I called the Huntington Beach, CA library and they gave me an email address and told me to send my request to that person. I sent the email explaining what I was looking for, but I haven’t heard anything back yet. It has only been a day.

    on the JHK blog the concept of the monorail was once again fantisized

    first there is no monorail in the world that goes faster than 35 miles per hour; the track switching machinery is more complex than conventional railway technolegy, have lower capacity and higher rolling friction, do not operate well in environments with ice and snow, or at grade, and costs triple what a trolley would, that could do what a monorail can not

  4. John Tedder says:

    Fred, Thanks for commenting. OK. Light Rail or a trolley car. That’s fine with me. It just seems ridiculous for everyone to be sitting there in their cars going nowhere.

    next:
    lose the transit in the highway median concept which has been dysfunctional from the get go.
    it was a political construct to quell opposition to highway projects that forces pedestrians to walk into the car-centric no man’s land to access the transit then again through a mega parkilng lot wasteland to access the highway oriented development providing free parking right at the front door. a lot of times the highway transit corridor is planned and then along the way the transit component is dumped; this happened in Boston’s Rt 128 beltway and more recently in the infamous “big dig”. transit stations need a walkable envelope around them
    the presence of the mega highway destroys this.

    check out owing’s mills station on the Baltimore subway for an example

    transit oriented development?
    or highway oriented transit development?

    There are a lot of unused or lightly used railroad tracks all over upstate New York. We should be able to refurbish at least some of them and put them back in service.

  7. Fred R Moore says:

    absolutely correct!
    that is
    if the rails to trails don’t get there first.
    I have found that local opposition to a rail trail vanishes when a line is proposed to be re-activated.
    this is happening in your neck of the woods in the Adorondacks, where a tourist line is trying to extend their operation to actually serve a transportation function. if I find the link I will send it to you

    Thanks for the NYT link on Detroit…great column, I’ve shared it on Facebook. Much appreciated!

    That link does in fact show the obit, for free. It’s http://news.google.com/newspapers?nid=1243&dat=19801113&id=Y5ISAAAAIBAJ&sjid=yPYDAAAAIBAJ&pg=4260,2840388
    The obit got two details wrong: he wrote a book in 1967 called The Power Of Money Management under the pen name Joseph Carr, about how he negotiated with his creditors to get out of debt. And, he made a lot of money selling copies of that book, with full page ads in newspapers. He got complaints from bankers and lawyers, and some papers refused to print the ads, which blared Get Out Of Debt In 90 Minutes. Copies of it show up on Ebay and used book websites on occasion. Then later, in 1973, he wrote and sold copies of The Lazy Man’s Way to Riches.

    David, Thanks for the comment. I found it an interesting book also. I really like “You’ll See It When You Believe It” by Wayne Dyer. Have you ever read that?

    Hi John
    I played baseball with Howard back then. we were on the Evans Pharmacy team and also were in school together. I moved away when I was 12 and have never returned. It was nice to read your story about Hamilton Square and the way it was…I randomly stumbled upon your story and found it quite an interesting read. thanks for that.Best regards

    Hi John, was born in the Square in 1950. Went to school with your sister I believe her name was Barbara. I lived in the house across from your dad’s office. It later was called the saddle shop. When the post office was there a hardware shop was next to that in the 50’s. We would buy fishing hook and bobbers to fish at the end of line rd. That was a great place to grow up.

  14. John Tedder says:

    I remember when the post office was where my father’s bookstore was. My sister still lives in Hamilton Square. I remember the Saddle Shop too. I too fished at the end of Line Road when you could still drive across the bridge. It was a great place to grow up. Lots of woods, fields and ponds. Thank you for taking the time to comment Burt.

    do you know if dr funk is still around?

  16. John Tedder says:

    I do not know if Dr. Funk is still around. It was the patch that finally allowed me to quit smoking. I am still smoke free.
