Many of the Nation's biggest rock n roll groups played at the Downtown Dance Club in Yakima beginning in 1967. The Downtown was owned and operated by Yakima Businessman Ron Barnsley. The Downtown , located on South 2nd street,had a block buster opening in June of 1967 when the Grassroots came to town. I know,because I was there. Their hit, Let's live for today,had just been released. It happened to be the first song they sang at the Downtown. Kima Radio was the driving force behind promoting the groups that would play at the Downtown.
KIma had a dj booth inside the club where Kima personality Dave Hood would play records and give away prizes during intermission. Yakima rock n roll fans had a chance to see stars like Rick Nelson,The Strawberry Alarm Clock, Merilee Rush and Sugarloaf without leaving town.
Bands like Paul Revere and the Raiders , Don and the Goodtimes
and the Beatles were an inspiration to up and coming rock and roll
bands in Yakima in the mid 60's. As a student at Highland High School
in Cowiche we had great record dances provided by History Teacher
Ken Leader. Ken always did his best to provide a Live Yakima band
as well. One of the hot bands at the time were the Lost Souls. The Lost
Souls played at the Highland High Christmas Ball in 1966.
Other rock bands at the time included the Velvet Illusions,
The Gentlemen Wilde and the Time Exit. Besides playing at area
High Schools, there were many other venues for the bands to show
their stuff. They included the YakIma Armory,Carpenters Hall,The Gay Shateau and the Downtown. The Downtown was the Premiere Dance Club in the 60's.More on that in a future Professor's Blog. I have included a photo from my High School Annual of the Lost Souls.
What side of the Gluten Free Debate are you on? I'm not sure - yet - but I think I'm heading toward conversion from being a gluten glutton to going gloriously gluten gnome-ore. (okay, that last effort to stick with the "g" thing I had going was a stretch) In January of this year, needing to lose over 100 lbs, I started to eat in a more "Paleo" way. Paleo is gluten free. Along with excercise, I began to lose some weight and surprisingly quickly, feel better. Within a couple of months I had lost 28 lbs. I've continued to hit the gym 5 days a week - but I have somewhat fallen off of my dilligence on Paleo - and therefore, my gluten-free diet. Well, I have noticed a tremendous difference -- as my weight loss has slowed - and I'm back to not feeling as well. The only thing I can attribute this to is -- getting older -- and what I'm eating/not eating.
Now, there's a whole lot of information out there and even more people who tout themselves as expert on the subject. All I know is - I started to feel great and lose weight almost effortlessly. I say almost because part of the deal was giving up beer and, well, that's not fair. But if the trade off is living longer and being healthier -- I think I'm going to jump back on the train.
There's an interesting article I just read from the Huffington Post. A couple of paragraphs I thought simplified and summed up pretty well the whole "gluten free" issue:
---- In general, there are two groups of people who are recommended to avoid gluten: people with celiac disease, who have an immune-system reaction to gluten,and people who are gluten-sensitive, who feel better after they cut gluten out of their diets, said Cynthia Wu, a clinical dietitian at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center. Gluten is a protein found in many grains, including wheat, barley and rye.
People who don't fall into either of these groups would probably not be advised to cut gluten out of their diet in pregnancy, because it is a very difficult diet to follow, Wu said. Gluten-free diets are not known to be risky in pregnancy, as long as women replace gluten-containing foods with healthy substitutes, such as rice-based products and sweet potatoes, Wu said.---
Have any thoughts on the subject? Success stories? Let me know.
