50 years ago, 1964: Phyliss Kromer, piano and organ player, was featured every Friday and Saturday evening at Cronin's Tavern, 1117 W. Washington St., Sandusky. Hostess/owner Bee Baumgardner said Phyliss had an appreciative crowd every weekend.

25 years ago, 1989: Archie Comics celebrated its 47th year at a birthday bash for hundreds of teenage fans. Archie, Betty, Veronica, Reggie and Jughead were all on hand in mid-town Manhattan along with 5000 members of Archie fan clubs.

10 years ago, 2004: The White House, trying to end doubts about President Bush's Vietnam-era military service, released documents that it said proved he "met his requirements" in the Texas Air National Guard.



Looks to me like Arch turned 72.


Good catch.

In 'comic yrs,' if Archie was 16, he'd be 88 yrs. old.


but 25 years ago Archie was 47. Now he's 72, I think he needs some new clothes


New clothes? Why? I happen to think he be stylin'.


Hmm. sorta like, if you keep your clothes long enough, they're back in again.
I guess at least his pants aren't sagging under his butt.


Shouldn't Riverdale High toss this old pedophile out?


So 10 years ago the biggest concern was whether the president served in the Army or the National Guard during Vietnam...

Now we have an actual Socialist in the White House who may not have even been born in this country and by his own admission has never celebrated July 4th in his entire life.


The Big Dog's back

Hey, right wingnut, were you born here?


I don't really care if he served in the Salvation Army, the fact of the matter is he served this country and the current president can't even show this country enough respect to put his hand over his heart during the National Anthem! And that to me stabs every serviceman that fought - no matter who, when or how - in the back because they did that to give him the freedom to do what he's NOT doing!

I had an original Archie comic book up until a few years ago when we moved. Because it had been in a box in our basement packed up with some of my other things and the basement had flooded so many times and I didn't realize this box had gotten damp the comic book was almost completely ruined. Could still get the pages apart but they were pretty icky so I had to throw it away. It was I believe my dad's but not sure on that but I also had one that had been one of the little book style ones - like you can still get now - that was mine (from the 70s) that were both pretty nasty and I was fairly bummed that they had to be trashed.
