Saw a thread on Facebook today over the passing of Benigno Pena, 81. I had no idea who he was. Or so I thought. Many of the comments were posted that he was the past owner of Whispering Wheels Skating Rink in Decatur where some of my best child hood memories were created. What really got my attention were comments like "Everybody Skate", "Couples Only", and "Progressive skate. Girls on one end, boys on the other." For those few of you that went to that skating rink in the 70s, those words, which boomed over the PA system, are happily burned into your brain. So, my question, was he the owner of place during the 70s? Or did someone else take over the place and keep the traditions going.
