What's with the photo?
This is a picture of my dad, Buddy Threatt, sitting atop a stack of newspapers at the Lake Charles Air Force Base (later named "Chennault Air Force Base") in the early 1950s. Buddy helped start The Skyway Times, the base newspaper. After dragging his wife and children all over south Louisiana, the family settled in Lake Charles and Buddy soon became the editor of the American Press.
