A reader submitted the following query in response to a previous Memories article on Modern Maid stoves.  If you can help Mr. Laird, please send him an e-mail at the address shown below, and copy me at jolleyh@bellsouth.net so that I can report the outcome.

I have read your interesting story on the history of Modern Maid stoves.  I am asking your possible assistance as to where I may find the model number of a built-in oven maid by Modern Maid.

I purchased the house in which I live about 20 years ago and the oven worked until about a year ago.  I have contacted several local service repair companies concerning what might cause the bottom heating element to not heat up.  I have had the element tested and it seems to be operational.  The clock does not work and I wonder if that could be the problem.  I am attaching a picture (from an ad I found on the internet) of the model of the oven. 

I would like to have the oven repaired but I can't since I cannot find the model number.  There is a Model Number in the broiler section of the oven but it does not seem to match any model number on the different web sites that have parts for the oven.  I tried to locate a manual for the oven but without the proper Model Number I could do that.

If you could be of help, I would appreciate it.  Maybe you might know the Model Number of the oven shown in the picture.  Any assistance such as where I may find any information on the oven might help me save the oven.

 Thank you in advance for your understanding and consideration in helping me solve this problem.

Shame On The Housing Authority - And Response

With Chattanooga and other cities around the nation struggling to find solutions to chronic homelessness it's cruel to evict families likely with children over a fight.   When you evict the adults you're also evicting any and all children in the household.  Intelligence would dictate looking for a root cause. Compassion would dictate looking for alternatives. Both ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Buy Ping Golf Clubs

As we set the charcoal, ice the drinks and prepare for Memorial Day, the first thing on my mind is to ask any golfers within my reach to consider buying and playing with Ping-brand golf clubs. Pings are made in America but there is a little something else you need to know, as told in an email I received earlier this week. I regret I do not know the author: * * * “On Monday, ...
