March 6, 1943, was a Saturday during a time when The Star wasn’t published on that day of the week.

March 6, 1993, in The Star: A vote of the Anniston City Council on March 12 is expected to give some direction on city streets, specifically, whether 10th Street should be two-way from west of Noble to Glen Addie Avenue. That issue and the need for more convenient parking are expected to be taken up. Also this date: Beginning next month, First Baptist Church of Saks will start a martial arts ministry. The two-hour classes will meet twice a week, said pastor Dr. Charles Owens. He and five other instructors will be teaching tae kwon do, the Korean variant of karate. An obligatory Bible study will precede each class. Additionally: Auburn University history professor Wayne Flynt, an Anniston native, has been named a recipient of the 1992 John F. Ramsey Award of Merit by the Alabama Association of Historians. The award recognizes superior contributions to the teaching and study of history – something Flynt, the author of seven books, has done for some 30 years.
