Tuesday July 27 1999 Tucson Citizen People Ice plant in writer frozen mind Lovio famTy photo In a 1950s photo Arizona Ice and Cold Storage Company employees (from left) Francisco Villa AI Hubbard Roy Lovio and Gustavo Duran stand beside their equipment From time to time readers of this column have honored me by sending me letters in response to what I have written here Some have even sent gifts and mementos which have meant a lot to me But none has moved me more than a photograph taken at a local ice plant nearly 50 years ago and generously sent to me last week The Arizona Ice and Cold Storage Co plant sail stands on East 17th Street I had to look it up in the phone directory' to see if it was still in business There was a time that for a variety of reasons it loomed large in the life of my old neighborhood With the railroad tracks the plant formed the southern boundary of Barrio San Antonio and the northern boundary' of Barrio Millville Many of the men of the area young and old worked at the plant at one time or another In fact there was hardly a household in either of the barrios that did not contribute at least one worker to the work force over the years Shrimp and fish from Mexico produce and even beer were stored icy cold there for area wholesalers and restaurants Keeping things cold in Tucson before the days of refrigeration meant ice lots erf ice and the plant manufactured it by the ton The trucks fanned out all over town every day to deliver ice to businesses homes and hospitals But by far the greatest consumer of the icy output was the railroad Freight trains carrying known affectionately as Viejo" the Old Man But longevity' record at foe plant paled when compared to that of Ed dad Roy ho is second from right in the photo Roy began working at Arizona Ice as a teen-ager and stayed there until he retired There a machine process or technique at the plant that Roy know inside and out His knowledge and skill were so appreciated by his workers that to the men at Arizona Ice Roy Lovio was simply Maestro The Master Farrah explains odd Show behavior RftSADENA Cahf Fkrah Fbwcett has gone pubbe with the reason behind her memorably odd appearance on the Show Wifo David questionable advice from M-m mom said go aid have a good fbweett recounted yesterday adding jokingly: is your fault The actress who appeared at the Television Critics Association to promote foe CBS-TV movie "SCk made Egl4 of her bizarre behavior two years ago The actress became the butt of jokes when she squirmed in her seat and seemed to her train of thougf during show on June 1997 Maybe she was guilty of a bad talk show the 52-year- ILSMtllWiiaEtg SHOw-Mt-S GOOQ KJ MON TVffEj WtP 7 1:00 360 9c00 7rl5 fcSO STMCTF 140at30700ft OCTOBER SKY pGfc ISO 3t30 530 730 30 RXCnONf 1:00 306 SrtO TOO MS 10 TIBKat HOT ABOUT YOU fO-1 IrlS SttS TrtS St15 EBnossBpo-t ttt 215 15 7rt5 St19 SACK ST FOPULAA OEBAAO ST06 TUESDAYS! 54 RERLiS BY0U6 OWB ANNUITY REVIEW -with David Steinberg CHFC Senior Vice President Investments at it i -aar- 4 lEWIEIIEll -mme SECURITIES Call 6IS-0477 Member SYSEISIPC that wrangling the ice proved to be excellent preparation fix- his training as a paratrooper Ed Lovio who very kindly sent me the photo included with this column also started his working life at the plant He went on to serve in own Easy' Company with the Marines in Korea and then served with distinction in the Tucson Fire Department For others working at the ice plant meant summer employment and no more Occasionally a Tucson High or University of Arizona football player saw work at the plant as a way of working out and getting paid at foe same time Still others were there for foe long haul Papa foe man on the left in the photo worked there for a very long time To his fellow workers he was mission to ow you have often said parents Should not do this and I agree with you but Gladys bear to put him in his own room The favoritism is so obvious even foe boy knows it He often says he is happy he was Bonnie can be a sweet loving child and it breaks my heart to see the ay she is treated by her mother Is there any way of making Gladys aware of what she is doing to her daughter?

If not you must urge Gladys to get some counseling The tantrums and destructive know Writer should make it Carmen Villa Prezelski A produce and other perishables pulled up to the back of the plant at a special siding here they were loaded with ice and sent on their way For other trains truckloads of ice were taken to the station The ice was loaded through hatches at the top of the cars after it was brought up by hydraulic hoist from a feeder truck As foe blocks dropped into the cars two men who perched on top wrestled them around with long-handled forked tools It was dangerous work because the cars shook violently as the ice was being loaded Many aspects of the work were dangerous Moving 300-pound blocks of ice with nothing but a pair of tongs was dangerous enough but add to that rooms full of hundreds of feet of pipe carrying ammonia under pressure scoring machines capable of easily sawing through ice and narrow catwalks over deep pools But the danger does not seem to have kept anybody away For many of foe young men in the area the plant provided their first full-time entry-level job My brother Kiko say's Ann Landers Bonnie started crawling on her hands and knees like a baby She also wets her pants when with her mother although she never does it with me other child a boy is never spanked or yelled at He is 6 years old and still sleeps in his bed I ilHEHIPPESTJ FUNNIEST camwacoN 20 caiiurr GAiawAy 12 BConMcl KofetaSodhofSpeedwy 202-3313 792-9000 DlGIIAL -THX SimO CENTURY MJIKM 620-0750 DIGHAL -TUX CfCPUXOOEON FOOMLJIWU BOBUS Foot Mold reft la Chela 712-6171 Cl J3 Carmen Villa Prezelsld Is a native Tucsonan who writes about the Hispanic heritage of Tucson snd the Southwest Write to her at the Tucson Citizen PO Box 26767 Tucson Ariz 85726 or tax her at 573-450 I save child nature are a cry for help and Gladys needs to learn how to act in best interest let that little girl down Make it your mission to rescue her She needs to be saved and you can do it Gem of the Day (credit Bill and Elly in West Palm Beach Fla): Who said life is fair?
