100 Years Ago
April 27, 1921
A dramatic feature of the G.A.R. convention to be held here in June is that it will be the last time the Grand Army men will ever assemble in Pendleton and quite likely they will never meet again in Eastern Oregon. The ranks of the G.A.R. grow thinner each year and as even the youngest of the veterans are in the seventies the hand of time will fall heavily upon them during the next decade. The G.A.R. last met here 27 years ago and at that time the organization was in its prime. This time they request that their parade be short and that programs in their honor be closed at 9 p.m. or thereabouts.

25 Years Ago

When Addison Schulberg came home from Portland six weeks ago, he was sporting a blue spot Band-Aid on his hand and a big scar on his chest. The resilient 4-year-old with flashing brown eyes shook his head gently and said he couldn’t ride his bike at the track because his scar “could break open.” Nine hours of surgery on his heart and a week at Emanuel Hospital gave the precocious preschooler a lot to talk about. Addison had two defective valves in his heart. He likes to have his mom, Carol Hanks, and dad, Ken Schulberg, read a book to him about a little boy’s heart surgery. “Every time he reads it, he has more questions,” Carol said.
