50 years ago, 1963: Alan and Sarah Slyker were the new owners of the Knotty Pine Tavern on Main Street in Huron. The 10-year-old tavern planned to offer a complete menu of luncheon sandwiches along with full course dinners. And Bob Hill would entertain on the organ from the over 2000 songs he knew from memory.

25 years ago, 1988: Two Perkins Township businesses, Fanny Baer's and Southwood Racquet Club, owned by Sandusky developer Jackson Wolff, were to be sold at sherif's sale to pay off more than $3 million in debts Wolff and his business partner owed. 

10 years ago, 2003: Long after four-letter words in standup comedy lost their ability to shock, Lenny Bruce - whose foul-mouthed rants started the trend - was posthumously pardoned for his 1964 obscenity conviction by Gov. George Pataki, N.Y.
