ALBERS, BLACK, DAPORE, DROSS, GANTT, GRILLOT, MILLET, MUMAW, VOISARD, YAGLE appeared on Wednesday, February 7, 1996

It was very quiet in Versailles this week...even quieter than last week.

The front page had a big article about the Worch Memorial Library in Versailles. Something they mention that may be of interest is that the VERSAILLES POLICY newspapers from 1890-present are available on microfilm there. (Be still my heart...106 years of Versailles newspaper articles...wonder if any of that is indexed?)
