Bike Tumble Precedes Top Senior Status for Aunt Sal
One thing about suddenly gaining access to an online archive of the Dover Daily Reporter from the 1930s through 1977 — they covered everything, and I mean everything, in my hometown.
Thus, club notes, traffic mishaps, kids’ birthday parties, the odd injury or two.
I thought it might be funny to celebrate my Aunt Sally Ley Pacheco’s birthday today by sharing some oh-so-pressing news, as detailed by the Reporter in February 1959:
Actually, second-degree burns and cut foreheads notwithstanding, I can see how this accident is far from funny. In fact, I remember hearing about it from Aunt Sal as a kid.
So to add a bit of balm to this birthday trip down memory lane, here’s a more thoroughly reported piece from April 1965. Hey, just about 50 years ago!
Looks like things were looking up by then for Aunt Sal, one of Dover High’s “top seniors.”
