50 years ago, 1964: A Norwalk man was jailed on charges of being a suspicious person after he walked into a downtown bank and frightened a teller by making a sign of throat slitting. The man was committed to the Toledo Sate Hospital.
25 years ago, 1989: A large nuclear-powered Soviet submarine was set ablaze in an underwater accident in the Norwegian Sea. Although reports were sketchy, Pentagon officials thought the stricken sub was the Soviet navy's sole "Mike" class vessel, a 361 ft. attack sub designed to destroy enemy subs and ships.
10 years ago, 2004: A record-breaking 105 bald eagle nests were verified by Ohio Department of Natural Resources, and this area had the highest concentration of them. Ottawa county had 15 nests, Sandusky county had 14 and Erie County had 10. For the first time since 1962, an eagle nest was found on Middle Bass Island.
