    the best thing about P Latka is Corky Bells restaurant at Gator Landing restaurant on the river (technically in East Palatka but still a good place to eat

    The best thing about Auburndale?

    How about
    Otis Boggs
    Sunday special 1990 inductees
    May 6, 1990|By Alan Schmadtke of The Sentinel Staff
    For three generations of University of Florida fans, Otis Boggs, 70, was synonymous with Gators football.
    From the late 1930s until 1980, Boggs was the Voice of the Gators. His down-home style and voice made listening to games feel as if your best friend were telling you everything you wanted to know about Florida football, objectivity or no.
    As long as he sat at the microphone, he was Gators football.
    Born in Clemson, S.C., Boggs moved to Florida as a boy and lived in several cities. He graduated from Auburndale High School.
    Boggs was a broadcast leader in his generation. He started working Florida football games as a color analyst when he was still a student in 1939.
    A year later and still a student, he became the Gators' play-by-play man, a position he held when he graduated in 1943 and kept until 1982.
    Last summer the university honored him with its distinguished alumni award.

    My college GF lived in Auburndale and taught at Auburndale HS before moving up here. Small world, I didn't know Otis lived there.

    In 1975 on the way to Crescent Beach with my Hobie Cat on a trailer we had a bit of an accident. There was this fruit stand on the side of the road in Palatka. Well, we did not know one of the axels on the trailer was rusted out. The axel busted and the Hobie Cat wound up in the fruit stand. Nobody got hurt, but the police hauled us off till until some buddies arrived with the money for the damage to the stand and the fruit. :mad:

    All of the cities are medium to large size population.

    There are hundreds of podunk poor cities all over the country, but they wouldn’t qualify.

    However, Salt Lake????

    My biased opinion would put that as the #1 medium/big city in America TO live in.

    Beautiful, no traffic, amazingly clean, infrastructure was brilliantly planned...
