Jerry Jordan remembers this story -
Way back in the winter of 1962-63 (can't remember the exact date, but know it was a Saturday night probably in January of '63) several of us boys were at teen town (above my dad's store) and decided to walk across the Wabash River. Yes, walk! It had been near zero for several days that winter and the ice was piled up at the bend. We decided to give the walk a try that night. I can't remember everyone, but I know Gary Bisch, Bob  Groff, Kenny Skiles, Jerry Miller, Jerry MacCormick, and several others drove their cars to the river and left the motors running and the lights on. We made a human chain by holding each other's wrists and started across the ice. Well, the ice began popping and cracking, but we continued on until we got to the beach on the other side. Then, after catching our breath we headed back. Boy, were we glad to get back to our cars. Not only were we cold, but we were really lucky to have made it across and back. Wasn't a very bright thing to do, but we were all bored and decided to try it. Some of the other guys that made the "trek" may be able to add some information to this episode. I know my parents weren't too happy to hear about it.
