I'm somewhat convinced that Super44's first language is not English (NTTAWWT). Or, he/she is a long lost descendant of Yoda...

That's where I remember it, too.
IIRC, it wasn't Skate Country, but a rival business. Skate Country was always on Airline before it changed its name and there was another in the East around Lake Forest.

I think the people that owned the one in Elmwood also owned the bowling alley that was on Jefferson for a while.

But see, I remember Skate Country being in Elmwood, just off Clearview, near where the Palace Theaters are/were.. at least it was for many years in the 1980s when i had birthday parties there.. i dont understand yall talking about it being on Airline, or it having been there forever(?)
Maybe there were two, the one on airline has def been there since the 80's.

I'm pretty sure it was a Skate Country in Elmwood. I have this memory of it having giant yellow backlit letters on the side of the building.

Just did a quick google search to confirm, and there is a FB group about it:

Thank you! I know I’m getting old, but i specifically remember many “couples’ skates” to Journey and Chicago at that location.

I seem to remember that there was supposed to be one on the westbank as well i believe, though i never ventured there.

Currently in Terrytown, but I can't remember if that's the original location. But is been there since at least the early 90s.

Victims and the shooter have been identified...

Miss him as a Saints reporter but Vargas is a pit bull with a story
That being said I hope he stays in this one bc there are still some questions
1. why?
2. did the other people have to load up their unloaded guns?

It kind of sounds like the actor in this story may have had the intent of suicide by gun range folk.

I was talking to my neighbor about gun ranges just yesterday. He said he doesn't like going to them because you just don't know who is next to you and what they will intentionally or unintentionally do. The one closest to us has had a 3 suicides in the last 10 years. Not suicide by provoking others, just people going there to shoot themselves. Still, someone shooting themselves could also injure others and at least leaves psychological damage.

That’s incredibly sad
