Lind: Readers respond to some favorite stories

Mailbag time, with messages concerning some Neighbors’ topics.

The story: Bobby Dale, a disc jockey on KFGO radio years ago.

Feedback: Lance Johnson, of the Johnson Organ Co., Moorhead, writes, “My mom and I used to listen to his (Bobby’s) Top 40 show in the late ’50s, and we agreed he was the greatest DJ ever in the Fargo-Moorhead area. He was interesting and funny.

“I saw him in person at one time and he now reminds me of (current TV personality) Drew Carey.”

The story: Jeanette Stone, who had served 31 years as a principal in the Fargo Public School system.

Feedback: Jeanette writes that she received “so many calls and letters in response to it (the story). It’s all been fun.”

Someone from Barnesville, Minn., also sent Neighbors a note saying, “Thank you so very much for the article on Jeanette Stone.

“I went to school at Carl Ben Eielson (one of Jeanette’s schools). I also was very sad (as was Jeanette) when they tore down (the old) Carl Ben. It was such a great school.”

The card is signed “Former student.”

Thanks to all of you neighbors who write Neighbors.
