unusual news from my families home town

my great grandfather james bates was one of the first police chiefs in harvey at the turn of the 20th century. used to visit grandmother and great aunt on annual family vacation in the sixties. long island to harvey, long drive for a ten year old. house my grandfather built is across the street from the library on turlington avenue. he got two pages in the 1962 harvey centennial history book.

small world stuff of little consequence. harvey used to be more vibrant and prosperous 60 years ago. best years well in the past.

About 90-percent

Gee - my profile info didn't migrate from the old DU I guess? The main thing - 90% refers to the maximum allowable percentage of nitromethane fuel permitted in modern NHRA Top Fuel and Funny cars. Which is what makes current "nostalgia nitro" so cool - you can still "tip the can" and run straight nitro, if you want to. I'm an aging northeast liberal with an overdeveloped justice gland.
