Look for the return of Mr. Whittemore's column, "It's The Little Things", in The Valley Home News. Several months ago, Mr. Whittemore had to stop writing the column due to back injuries he suffered in an auto accident four years ago. Many readers missed his column, as he missed writing it and now he has resumed the series. He dedicated his return column, appearing in the July 20, 1998 edition of The Valley Home News, to the 1998 Ilion Days Parade, which was held on July 24th.
Mr. Whittemore wrote, "I agreed to serve as the Grand Marshal at the parade to show how much I care for Ilion and its people....There are many more great stories about Ilion." He invited readers to call him at 315-894-8370, after July, and he'll do another column about Ilion. (Updated July 27, 1998)
An original newspaper article by Harold Whittemore, also appearing on this web site, is about the 1963 high school fire..."There Was No Laughter As Flames Gutted School".
