Walking through town the other day, alert “06880” reader Rick Leonard stopped to admire the renovation of the former Sherwood home on Church Lane, opposite the Y.
Peering through the chain link fence, he noticed old newspapers half buried in construction detritus.
Rick couldn’t see the name, but read the date: June 5, 1908. He was impressed with the good condition of the papers — and the headlines.
One read: “Thieves Steal Pastor’s Trousers.”
Another was titled “Rich Man Raids Wife, Clubman.”
What an exciting summer that must have been! And to think that now all we worry about are taxes, senior housing, education, the economy and distracted driving.
