Duane and I lived down the street from each other in the pre-school years in the 400 block of west 9th street. We fished in Sand Creek and told whoppers of fish stories as only five and six year olds can, unbelievably. My parents moved to west 7th and I went to St. Mary's and he went to Lincoln school. Our paths parted and only had limited contact thereafter. David Olson
