Gail Wackerle remembers: As you drove through down town, the building with the window s & curtains was Leo Helfer’s bar. The place that looks gray was, I believe, Baycorns. It also had a concrete hangover, that you could walk under, if you got caught in the rain. Next was Jacks which was called Pinky Lees, then the Dolphin, and was owned by Ken Collier, also built for him , as I was a kid.
