City & State: Crestview FL
Message: 3 Topics for this weeks feedback,,,if things get a little dull... The 1969? (1) Teacher's Sick-IN ...(2) What Year Did the City place a Camera atop the water tower, and can anyone remember the Paranoia about "BIG BROTHER" and "THE EYE IN THE SKY", seems like there was feelings of invasions of privacy...Also, (3)can anyone recall the strong pungent aroma of Chlorine Vapors while entering and exiting the HHS Swimming pool, this probably applies only to boys since I think the filters & Pumps were over next to the Mens dressing area...To this very day, whenever I get a strong Wiff of Chlorine, the first thing I think of, is the school plunge and having to walk through that "odor" ever time I swam.
