Cordele’s front page of history: July 21, 1969

In addition to coverage of the moon mission and the Vietnam War, there were stories about:

  • the late U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy’s Chappaquiddick scandal,
  • a Las Vegas showgirl,
  • local livestock sales of $157,454.53 for the week, and
  • a list of people admitted to and released from Crisp County Hospital.

Advertisements listed the price of a five-pound bag of flour as $.39 and a five-ounce package of bologna for $.19. The 10-page paper itself cost a dime.
