Good gravy, look who's eighty

Retired fire chief Puggy Lamphere is Springfield's newest octogenarian. Retirement '06 article: Springfield bids farewell to a local icon

A really long time ago, Puggy was employed at a neighborhood market in North Springfield.

In 2010, Puggy was persuaded to host his own TV talk show on the local cable SAPA-TV. The show was an instant hit. Shown here recently interviewing Sue Minter, Democrat nominee for governor.
2010 article: Puggy being hailed as 'the new Oprah'

May need the fire department standing by for this one.


  1. Happy Birthday, Puggy ! Best wishes for many more.

  2. Thanks for creating that chip-board eyesore in the middle of town, and for burning the asbestos laden building and poisoning us residents, and for running a crew of firemen pervs that traded cigarettes for nudie pics to the female inmates painting the fire station......well done!
