John Cofield’s Photo of the Week: “Skateland USA”

“I still drive by that place and just look at it remembering a line of kids all the way down the walk, all the skating parties, and yes, the first time holding hands with a girl. Good times indeed. I hope George Lynch knows how big a deal all that was for those kids of the 1980s.” —Ben Couey

“Many of us Skateland veterans are pictured here. Fun times skating in the 4th of July Parade, with, Bo Ragon, Randy Byrd, Douglas McClurkin, Edward Smith, Phyllis Tatum, Jerry Lammons, Tammy Mason, Robin Fielder, Chuck Lucas, and myself. I made the sign!” —Tina Goforth Ross
