50 years ago, 1963: Thousands of AFL-CIO sponsored demonstrators walked around Columbus with signs protesting planned legislative changes tightening unemployment and workmen's compensation regulations.
25 years ago, 1988: Land, air, and water resources vital to man's survival were being overpowered by the crush of the world's burgeoning population which grew by 220,000 people a day, or 150 humans a minute in 1988, a U.S. report said. The world population was over 5 billion and expected to reach 6 billion by the end of the century.
10 years ago, 2003: A Berlin Township man tried multiple times to shoot a groundhog, missed, and shot holes in a neighbor's summer cottage instead. He entered the house and patched holes, but the owner returned to find three bullet holes in his windows and a poor patch job on his walls. He was still debating whether to file charges.
