75 Years Ago
$15,000 Loss Prevented

Herald of July 25, 1946
Speedy action by a threshing crew and prompt response by the Martinsburg Fire Company prevented a possible loss of more than $25,000 when flames enveloped a straw stack beside one of the largest barns in North Woodbury Township owned by Elwood C. Imler near Henrietta.
Two hard storms passed over the central Cove bringing heavy rain. A lightning bolt hit the corner of the garage at the Oren Whetstone home in Martinsburg.
The largest plane to be used for sight-seeing trips since the airport was built at Martinsburg arrived for flights for five days.
