  • The Way We Were:Cartinhour receives Meritous Service Award

    Betty Hatter sent an email about the Anderson All-star photo on last week’s Way page. She had two sons in the photo, Jacky Hatter and Robby Hatter, the batboy. She said she remembered this “season in our life” really well and the good times with good friends.

    Kenneth DeWitt was something else. A barrel of fun, with an emphasis on barrel, Hatter said. (Explanation later.) Those were the days when CB radios were really popular. Some of the local guys belonged to a CB radio club called “Uncle Charlie Rejects,” according to the email.
