Tom Berg has been talking about going into the Guinness Book of World Records for a radio broadcasting endurance mark. It was on this date in 1928 at Bass Lake when George Byer, of Knox, won the roller skating endurance contest.
He roller skated continuously, except for five minute rests for 25 hours and 28 minutes. He was one of 11 entrants in the contest, which was sponsored by Nehi Company and Rannells and Kriss. It attracted the attention of scores of people.
On this date in 1964, the North Judson-San Pierre School District was approved.
In 1976, groundbreaking ceremonies were held at Koontz Lake for the American State Bank Branch.
It was announced on this date in 2000 that former North Judson-San Pierre basketball coach Dave Mc Collough, who was then coaching at Noblesville, had been selected to coach the Indiana High School All-Stars in the summer series with the Kentucky All Stars.
And get those Spock ears off Tom Berg. Leonard Nimoy is celebrating his 81st birthday today. Nimoy starred in the Star Trek series.
