50 YEARS AGO:

The Coast Guard issued a strong reprimand to eight boats that were found in the Navy's test firing range at the Marquesas.

A passing car tossed a tear gas bomb into Johnnie's Place on the corner of Grinnell and James streets.

The Coast Guard was conducting an investigation into an accident where two skin divers were run over by a boat near Sigsbee Park. Both men were reported in satisfactory condition at the Navy Hospital.

Fausto Food Palace owner Carl Weekley reported that $3,200 was missing from the cash box. After investigation, a warrant was issued for James Collie, the assistant manager.

Former city commission and bail bondsman Terry Lee Garcia posted a $20,000 bond for Sam Cagnina, who was arrested for robbing the armored car and was seen leaving the scene in Garcia's car.
