So Good To Hear About The Old Homwtown!

It was May of 1979 that I put my home town, Fort Wayne Indiana, in my rear view mirror.  Since I left I’ve been back 2 times.  Once in 1981 when my big brother got remarried, and once in 2010 about year before he lost his battle with throat cancer.  So, it’s easy to see I didn’t really miss too terribly much about my Hoosier roots.

Every now and then I see “The Fort” pop up in a news story.  I once read a book written by a former inmate of the Indiana Correctional System, he was also from Fort Wayne.  But just today, the people that I grew up around popped up again.  I grew up with a lot of strange kids, we all did I suppose.   I remember talk of “The Government” putting something in the drinking water supply as an experiment.  I think it was fluoride, I do have really strong teeth.  But then when I read this story I paused to think it may have been something else.

Aaron Stephanski (I don’t remember ever meeting anyone with that name in my youth) was arrested and charged with 4 counts of child neglect and another charge of DUI.  Seems Aaron thought it would be a good idea to strap his 4 kids, aged 4 to 7, to the hood of his car and go on a three block joy ride!  He plead guilty.

Fort Wayne, glad to see you back in the news . . . . . . . .
