50 YEARS AGO
July 6, 1961
Andrew Bird, Anderson County’s new school superintendent, was given the oath of office. Former superintendent Mrs. C.T. Ward and former Director of Pupil Personnel Ezra Sparrow were presented gifts in ceremonies at the superintendent’s office later that afternoon.
Clusters of small tomato-like fruit appeared in a patch of Irish Cobbler potato vines in the garden of Marion Peach on Court Street.
Peach said very few potatoes were in the patch. A cluster of the tomatoes was placed in the News window.
