About Me:
I currently live in Iowa City. At some point I will move back to Fort Dodge for the last tri-mester so to speak. I think setting up in or near Fort Dodge will be like coming home to America. The place I live in now, though not in bad shape, but is really expensive and in many ways the folks that live here are living in such a way...that got our country into the way it finds itself now. I'm done with it. When we do find our way out it will be people more like Fort Dodgers than Iowa Citoenails, (as I refer to them)

I have enjoyed the comments about things and places in Ft. Dodge that touched your lives when we were growing up in Ft. Dodge. Duane mentioned delivering the Des Moines Tribune in the '50's; I also delivered the Tribune and the Sunday Register in 1951 - 1952. I had three routes that were fairly contiguous; they went from about 9th St. and 2nd Ave. No., up to 7th Ave. No., over to 15th St., and then to 1st Ave. So. I don't remember how many houses I delivered to but I do remember that Sundays were particularly brutal because of the size of the paper.

A guy with the last name of Wolf or Wolfe was the agent in charge or the supervisor. I have some bad stories about how he cheated the carriers. The worst practice of his was to make carriers deliver papers to people who would not pay their bill. It came out of the carrier's pocket as we were charged for every paper we took out on the route. Wolf never lost money on bad accounts, but the carriers did. I ended my newspaper career when my father confronted him; he never made any restitution. It is an experience that will live with me, probably forever. The good times were when my friend Doug Trusty would help me with the route; it would cut my time in half. My recollection is that the office for the Register and Tribune was on 11th Street, between Central Ave. and 1st Ave. So.

Sorry, I just noticed your comment to me. We did live a half block from Lincoln School but my father was not in Insurance. He worked for the Rosedale Creamery and then in Sales.

Glad to have you here Duane. We have a few past KVFD'ers in our Remember When group...I know they'd enjoy any stories you or your dad had about the stations, or about Fort Dodge.
