From the Oct. 7, 1936 News Record:
Citizens should not become alarmed today if the fire siren should screech its warning out upon the evening air because it may be just a test. The siren was moved yesterday from its old position to the top of the new city hall building where it will sound the fire calls henceforth. The old bell that once proudly clanged forth the same fire calls was also hauled to a position on the roof of the city hall and was connected with ropes below where it may be used in the event of electric failure for the siren. It will assume the position of a relic, more or less, however.
From the Oct. 11, 1951 News Record:
Selective Service Director Lewis B. Hershey announces that local draft boards will begin reclassifying about 500,000 married men without children this week, and said some will be inducted almost immediately. The draft law passed by Congress in June ordered the reclassification of childless married men from 3-A to 1-A unless they qualify for deferments on some grounds other than marriage. Hershey warned married draft registrants to notify the local boards “immediately” if they have become fathers in the past two years. He also pointed out that the new regulations change rules governing deferments in cases where a registrant claims unborn children as dependents. In the past, a registrant has been able to obtain a dependency deferment from the date his child was conceived — and on his own say so. The new regulations require a registrant to file a physician’s certificate stating that a child has been conceived.
From the Oct. 3, 1974 News Record:
Enrollment predictions for Campbell County schools vary, but estimates show the school population could double in four years. Uncertainty of plans by several energy companies in the area have left many questions for school officials, but J.O. Reed, school superintendent, said Tuesday he has had “tremendous cooperation” from six companies working in this county. “Most companies are being real sincere and quite open with us, I believe,” said Reed. He cited Pacific Power and Light, Black Hills Power and Light, Amax, Atlantic Richfield, Carter and Sun Oil as having been helpful. Of 11 population prediction studies for Campbell County, school enrollment averages show a rise from 3,316 students in 1974-75 to 11,546 in 1990.
