LOOKING BACK September 11, 2013 50 Years Ago - September 12, 1963 The Maryhill school bus started its run last week, this year driven by Lorne Barrett. His drive takes him first to Jay Dee Trailer City, where he picks upl8 pupils, then 3 at Project City and about 21 from Maryhill. Several Wishram students also get on the bus at the Maryhill Junction Service Station. "/5 Years Ago - September 8, 1938 Frank Green, of Klickitat, was struck on the head by a flying roRing pin that went wild into the crowd at the Klickitat Union Labor Day picnic. The rolling pin was thrown by Mrs. Orville Watson, of Goldendale, who on a previous throw had won the roiling pin contest. Green was knocked out by the blow but recovered after treat- ment at the Klickitat hospital. Aside from the severe gash in his forehead that required 8 stitches to close, he suf- fered no serious injury. 100 Years Ago - September 11, 1913 At this last session, the county commissioners cut the expense bill of Assessor Wertz from $40 to $16. This bill had a voucher of $35 for board and horse feed at the Moun- tain Brook Inn, at Trout Lake. It is generally understood that the assessor took that.trip to confer with those of that district who objected to the increase assessment. 125 Years Ago - September 13, 1888 Another brick kiln was opened up this morning at H. D. Young's brick yard. This will furnish the brick to com- plete the Cumming & Cram and W. H. Ward's buildings. The buildings that have been completed since the fire together with those that are in course of construction will be worth as much as all the buildings that were burned on May 13, although there is not more than one-third as many.
