Looking Back to Friday Night Shopping at Montgomery Ward in Tyler

I thought I'd take a little trip down memory lane, A Flashback Friday if you will. Before Walmart was the number one retailer in the world, before JC Penny, even before Target, there was Montgomery Ward. There used to be a two story shopping experience where Tyler Spine and Joint is now full of electronics, the latest fashions, home goods and an escalator I loved playing on.

Seeing that this article originated in Maine, this was absolutely true.

This story has it all — Gene Simmons, a Republican politician from Texas, a question about changing the orbit of the moon or the Earth, and climate change. That's because the musician who's famous for being The Demon in the band KISS shared a decidedly unfiltered critique of U.S. Rep. Louie Gohmert via Twitter on Thursday (June 10). Simmons was responding to news from this week that Gohmert had asked the U.S. Forest Service if it was possible to alter the orbit of either our planet or our moon as a way to combat climate change, as was reported by The Hill.
