The Roanoker - November/December 2017 - 10

FROM THE EDITOR

34 (OK, 35) Random Notes from

Herewith a few highlights (?) from the most recent three and a half or so decades of
the soon-to-be 45-year-old magazine you're reading.

START

1

APRIL, 1984: "Just ask Thalhimer's, which is now part of
Carter-Hawley-Hale. Or ask
Miller and Rhoads, which is
owned by Allied. You just don't
see multi-billion-dollar corporations investing in something
that isn't needed or isn't going to
work." -Valley View developer
Henry Faison, speaking to me as
part of "The Coming of Valley
View: Bazaar Supreme of the
Appalachians," about if the 1985
arrival of the center might result
in the over-malling of Roanoke.

2

APRIL, 1985: "Our
decision to marry took
a great deal of thinking
and talking through. We
wanted a commitment for
a lifetime. This is my last
and best marriage." -
Debbie Reynolds in a phone
interview about her marriage
to Roanoke developer Richard
Hamlett, on which she soon
soured and which ended in
divorce in 1996.
12

NOVEMBER, 1995: "Best
Place to Dine with Your
Mom. Platinum: The Roanoker. Gold: The Homeplace. Silver: The Regency
Room." -Result in 1995
Best Restaurants Reader Poll.

11

MARCH, 1994:
"Certainly not Robin
Reed again-howsabout Bob Goodlatte?"
-Roanoke Mayor
David Bowers' personal
pick for Best Local Sex
Symbol-Male.

JANUARY, 1996: "Wasn't that brilliant?" -Greenways coordinator Helen Smithers, speaking

13 in Helen Barranger's "Greenways: Here They Come at Last" about Roanoke County's installa-

tion of a greenway in Garst Mill Park as a part of new sewer installation.
