Oct. 11, 1943, in The Star: Residents of Hobson City have their own goal for the national War Chest Appeal, $250, Hobson City Mayor Howard Cunningham announced today. Harriet Pierce has been named chairman of the drive; serving with her on the fundraising committee is Maude Cunningham, Will Bates, Ora Wilson, C. E. Hanna, the Rev. Mr. Pollard and the Rev. Mr. Connor. Also this date: Pedestrians in downtown Anniston are still causing a problem for motorists by crossing the street against the light and off the crosswalk, thereby delaying motorists. Police don’t want to ticket and fine anyone, but they will if they have to, the minimum fine being one dollar.
Oct. 11, 1993, in The Star: Last night in Atlanta the Philadelphia Phillies relied on the masterful performance of pitcher Danny Jackson and the mind-boggling performance of reliever Mitch Williams to assure that the 1993 National League Championship Series will be settled in Philadelphia. The Phillies beat the braves 2-1 to even the NLCS at 2-2. The fifth game is being played this afternoon at 2. The second game was arguably the Braves’ best, given that they beat Philadelphia 14-3.
