I love digging through historical newspapers. Usually I’m doing it when searching for one of my ancestors, but today I did it because I realized I haven’t done a “this date in history” lately and wanted to do something related to the place we’re in right now.
So I turned to a January 30, 1913 newspaper from Coshocton, Ohio: The Coshocton Daily Times
Here are a few glimpses into the advertisements, quips and what was newsworthy in Coshocton, Ohio on January 30, 1913…
Well friends, thanks for joining me on this entertaining journey from the Coshocton Daily Times 100 years ago today.
P.S. For my fitness pals. First, I will get the My Fitness Pal up and usable before the end of today so we can connect there. Second, yesterday’s weights went pretty well. I did 3 sets of 10 reps each on bench press at 65 pounds, but they were pretty hard to get through. For Thursday weights I’m going to see how many 70’s I can get through. I’ll get there. My bicep curls, modified to hammer curls because of the stupid right elbow tendonitis, are at 25 pounds each. My “Arnolds” are 15 pounds each. My good girl/bad girl machine puts me at 65# good girl, 75# bad girl. Hmmm. Kurt did the weight circuit with me, mostly lifting more than me (‘cuz I’m a girl he keeps reminding me, risking serious slappage). Actually, it was a lot of fun training with him and I wish we had that opportunity more.
