50 years ago, 1963: Millions of television viewers watched in stunned horror as a murder was committed. It was undoubtedly the first time so many people witnessed a real life homicide as Dallas night club proprietor Jack Ruby shot down Lee Harvey Oswald, the man accused, but not convicted, of assassinating President Kennedy.
25 years ago, 1988: After sitting unused for a year and a half, the former Sandusky Post Office was purchased by Ed Feick for $60,000. The $60,000 bid was far below the $245,000 appraisal.
10 years ago, 2003: Someone was holding a little piece of paper worth $13 million. They bought it at Dave's Food Mart in Norwalk. The Ohio Lottery Commission notified the store that a customer purchased a $1 winning Super Lotto Plus ticket from that location. The winner still had not claimed the money.
