Is Callis Cutoff the same place where there was an abandoned house they used to call "The Cult House?" I went to Ridgeway from '79-'87 (from 5th grade) and I remember us going to a place out in Germantown/Collierville area that had an abandoned house in the middle of a field/wooded area and when we went in the house there was all kinds of Satanic graffiti on the walls, also there was a big water tower (empty) close by that we would climb up and sit while we drank and smoked.
The way I remember it, the hoods were the heavy metal/rocker/parachute pants wearing/moccasin boot wearing kids-the ones that everyone knew they were smoking/drinking/doing drugs; the preps were, of course the polo/izod/everything monogrammed wearing kids-who of course were smoking/drinking/doing drugs too, but they covered it up alot better; then we had the skaters/punkers (flannel, piercings, etc), nerds (aka band), smart kids, jocks/cheerleaders. However, I don't remember any significant fights/tension etc between any of the groups at Ridgeway, everybody seemed to get along pretty well as a whole.
