50 years ago, 1964: February's "unemployed-a-week-or-more" rolls for Erie County averaged 390 fewer claimants than the same time in 1963, according to statistics released by the State Bureau of Unemployment Compensation.

25 years ago, 1989: A barn fire at a Monroeville farm that caused more than $100,000 in damages and killed several cows might have been started when one of the cows kicked over a heat lamp. Only the frame of the barn remained when firefighters reached the scene.

10 years ago, 2004: Doc Severinsen performed at the State Theatre in Sandusky. He and his big band played for more than two hours. Severinsen was the Tonight Show band leader for 25 years.

Re: "one of the cows kicked over a heat lamp."

Perhaps the act of a despondent, suicidal bovine?

Shades of Mrs. O'Leary!

The un-employment "stats." Interesting. Heard relatives & friends talk. They said can't understand today's economy. Said they were fortunate.

Back then there were many good paying jobs. To compare unemployment numbers would be misleading since so many jobs are low wage/part time now. Can't understand today's economy because they're probably not shareholders.
