Three specific things to notice about the rest of the local news presented today:
1. There were always numerous social events occurring in town. The residents of Caddo were active participants in card games, parties, dances, clubs, and sports. They didn’t have the option of sitting around watching television!
2. There is a birth announcement here that is two weeks after the event itself. Those of you searching for information in the paper should always check a whole month before and a month after the date you have on your records.
3. The editor of the Herald often inserted his own opinions and remarks into the news. I especially like his comment today that “It is the social co-mingling of the community that makes life worth living.”
