I Keith Weis made short work tearing into the old building which had been an area land mark for many years. Two sisters reflect on the recent demolition of their childhood home "Mike's Place" a mile north of Dovray By Tom Merchant Sentinel Tribune DOVRAY -- If you are old enough to remember, "Mike's Place" a landmark a mile north of Dovray, was a popular gathering place from the late forties to the mid seven- ties. Mike and his family ran the bowling alley, store and gas station during that period. About two weeks ago the cur- rent owner, Jenny Roberts of Dovray, decided to demolish the buildings which had been unoccu- pied for several years. She hired Keith Weis to do the work with the assistance of Darren Peters. It took the better part of a day to demo and burn the build- ings and some of the trees that had grown around it. Ninety one year old Ruby Yocliem lived just a' quarter mile down the road and remembers when Bob and Agnes Cohrs moved in a couple of buildings and set up a bowling alley and a store in the early forties. She said it was real handy for them to get groceries -- "a lot of people around here used it -- but there are getting to be less people living around here." She remembers going to the bowling alley to watch her sister said.

It just won't be the same when I go by the old corner." Sisters, Kathy and Beverl~. recalled some of the times they had growing up on the place. Their parents, Mike and Irene Zinda, bought the place from Bob and Agnes Cohrs in 1947. Beverly, the oldest of the children said, "at that time there was just an old train car and a small three room house my parents, me and two brothers, Dennis and Gary, lived in. It was real cozy." bowl. "We used to have potluck fish fries there, we had a lot of fun," she Landmark Page 3 Rolling Hills Golf Club ladies presented a $1,200.00 donation to Murray County Hospice.
