The press picked up thatj story, and it seems thai j wlierever wo go, two red roses j turn up somewhere,"'hp said.] Storey said ho will stay in! the Air Force and be assigned to the Air Force * Academy ] to work with cadets. ] He and his wife returned to< Galesburg with their two chll- j dren Saturday. It is his first; trip to the community in 13 j years. ' "SALLY and I took a sentt- j mental cruise around Galea-! burg yesterday after church, j I noticed the loss of all tiie \ elms. The street art which I ] lived — Olive Street — was i always a tunnel of elms in the • summer, and I see they are all gone. Most of the downtown \ stores still exist, but in many \ instances they have swapped i sides of the street. The new I road system is good.
