It's interesting how history repeats itself. Our local paper has what the headlines were 100 / 75 / 50/ 25 years ago. Well 75 years ago on this date the county was dealing with a heat wave, and Judge McDade ordered fans for the jurors and said coats could be removed. Also, Sam Sanders, a jeweler was buying gold, $7 an ounce for 10 karats or $17 an ounce for 22 karats!

Seems like that could be today, only the prices are higher and nobody has the decency to get dressed up for jury duty anymore.

Also, congrats to Chief John Bennett as he moves on to take the helm of the Paradise Valley PD in AZ. I have known John since I was a little kid. He's a great guy and Paradise Valley is lucky to get such a fine man. Good Luck Chief
