The mission of this site is to inform and educate the
reader about Springfield and it's history. This site will
diligently seek to provide facts that are accurate and true. It
will always be a family-friendly site for everyone
who can read or look at photos. You can be assured that this site
will be devoid of gutter language and content generally considered to

PAGE is an introduction page. New items in the site
might be posted on this page. In addition, there will probably be
a frequent change of one or two photos of interest.
KUDZU VINE PAGE will generally
contain photos and/or text about local, one time happenings, posted for
an indefinite time.
Of course, the KUDZU VINE is simply a
substitute for the legendary GRAPE VINE that is responsible for the
quick dissemination of gossip and real news, especially in small towns
such as Springfield. Also, on this page there are numerous external links to
THIS SITE PAGE
provides information about the entire site and will remain
unchanged. The photo of the red Southern X476 caboose is the logo
for this site and will always be prominently displayed on each page. Under the caboose on each page is the date
of the last edit; therefore, the reader can determine if any changes
have been made since his or her last visit.
The FROG JUMP
PAGE will always retain the history of

will change as the need arises. Some photos will be
removed and others will be added as time permits.

facts, photos, and maybe some legends about Springfield and the Goodland
community as it relates to Springfield. However, I shall always
indicate when something is a legend, rather than a known fact.
EDITORIALS PAGE contains my comments and editorials
about a variety of subjects.
The TOWN HALL
PAGE contains information about how
our elected officials govern our town.
is devoted to the world wide travels of Mr. Gus M. Browning
and his wife Peggy of Orangeburg, SC. They traveled extensively during the 1960s and 1970s,
transmitting Ham Radio signals from remote places around the world.
W4BPD is the Ham Radio call sign that was assigned to Mr. Browning.
Even if you don't have any interest in Amateur Radio, you will find
humor, and to a large degree experience the adventures of traveling the seas
and into foreign countries during a period of time that travel was not
as easy, in some respects, as traveling today.
OF ATHEISM PAGE is a page about Atheism. It contains several
links and other information about Atheism, and also contains my
thoughts about Atheism. It is not an attempt to proselytize the
reader. Just like your TV, you can turn it off.
If you don't wish to learn about
Atheism, then just don't go to that page. I am in no way
attempting to force any information on anyone.
