  • EDITORIAL: Pearl Harbor remembered

    Tuesday marks the 69th anniversary of the Japanese bombing of Pearl Harbor. This  editorial was written by Cannelton News Editor Bob Cummings and published Dec. 6, 1960. At that time, the county was home to hundreds of World War II veterans. The number of living vets who fought in the war are far fewer today, but the relevance of Pearl Harbor Day remains. Cummings’ editorial is published here in its original words.
