Why did they call it the "Band Room"? It wasn't a room, it was the noisest place on earth. Where you waited forever on your babe to finally be released from the grip of Myron Pearce. Art classes were upstairs, Mr. Martin reading Mad Magazine.
Majorette Sandy Scaffide, 1959
My guess is it would be classified as a psychological disorder, but I have a tough time throwing things away. There are notes passed to me in the third grade, at Roosevelt Junior High School, stuck away in boxes in my attic.
In Reynoldsburg, Ohio, where i live, my community dedication was to the Historical Society where another large website was created. This details events back to the eighteen hundreds.
The www.nerkahia.com website you have reached here, is my way of reliving all those wonderful years of growing up in Newark, Ohio. Long live the Fifties!
After my sixtieth year, people started referring to me as a "Historian."
In all my treasures of the past however, one has eluded me. That is a photo of the Fairfield Shoppe, formerly located at the corner of Fairfield Avenue and Mt. Vernon Road in Newark, Ohio. If anyone out there has any type of photograph of this hallowed site, please do not hesitate to send it to me.
Any photos from your youth are welcomed on this site. This includes photos of buildings and places where all of us hung out. Send them to my email address, drop them off or mail copies of them to:
