An oral history project by Banned High School senior Forest Whitman turned up surprising results when his grandmother, Dolores Marker, told the story of the night of passion she had with singer/songwriter Kenny Loggins.
Whitman presented his grandmother's story to his senior history class Monday. His parents were called and told that they knew about the project and the 61-years-young grandmother's wild past in the 1980s.
The following is a transcription of part of that story:
"Well, I was in my 30s and had just divorced your granddad... Your mom was old enough to be by herself, nearly ready for college, and I was going a little wild, what you kids call a 'cougar'... I was going crazy at all the bars from New Orleans to Mobile... Then one night one of those many, many boys showed me this movie he liked called Caddyshack. It wasn't my cup of tea really, but that song... It did things to me... So I looked up Kenny's tour schedule, followed him around for a few years 'til I cornered him in a bar in Atlanta... Had him right there in the bathroom against the sink."
The story continues in graphic detail and you can hear the complete tale next Wednesday, March 14, at the Banned Library for our "Local History Awareness" program. Ms. Marker and others will be available to tell their stories. The program starts at 6pm and is free for all.
