I'm 92 years young, born and raised in Ogden in the old McKay Dee Hospital on 24th and Harrison Blvd. I started school in the old grant school on Grant Avenue between 22nd St and 23rd. It went from the first grade to the seventh. Boy, you talk about a mixture of ethnic races. We had Japanese, Chinese, Mexicans, Italians and Blacks. We even had a black lady sports teacher. She was great to us kids. I will never forget her; Miss Butaba was her name. She had a twin sister who was a nurse at the Hospital. As far as race was concerned, we were all just kids. Race wasn't even thought of. We were all friends. Can't we keep it that way?
