Doug's Diggings: Hard to believe dog track issue began 20 years ago
I happened to open a paper from January 1989 and was somewhat shocked to find that the community was heavily embroiled in the midst of the dog track controversy. I was shocked because I find it hard to believe that it was 20 years ago!
The top headline in the Jan. 26, 1989, edition of the Star-Observer read: Two dog track applications in; only one will get a license. In the Jan. 19 and 26 editions of 1989 there were no less than five dog-track related headlines on the front page!
