This Day In History: 09/26/1960 – First Kennedy-Nixon Debate: “For the first time in U.S. history, a debate between major party presidential candidates is shown on television. The presidential hopefuls, John F. Kennedy, a Democratic senator of Massachusetts, and Richard M. Nixon, the vice president of the United States, met in a Chicago studio to discuss U.S. domestic matters. Kennedy emerged the apparent winner from this first of four televised debates, partly owing to his greater ease before the camera than Nixon, who, unlike Kennedy, seemed nervous and declined to wear makeup. Nixon fared better in the second and third debates, and on October 21 the candidates met to discuss foreign affairs in their fourth and final debate. Less than three weeks later, on November 8, Kennedy won 49.7 percent of the popular vote in one of the closest presidential elections in U.S. history, surpassing by a fraction the 49.6 percent received by his Republican opponent.”

After months (or years?) of “discussions,” Waterville has won, and the tilting pole next to the Bank buildiung has been replaced with one that stands perfectly straight!!
And after years and years of wondering how to keep the drainage ditch next to the Buell Avenue sidewalk from getting clogged, it appears that the solution is, simply, to keep Kevin digging!”
