75 Years Ago – February 23, 1939

• By the margin of one vote Goldendale’s city council Monday evening passed an ordinance banning pin ball games within the city limits. The action followed a recent move of the Klickitat County Commissioners licensing pin ball machine operators to bring machines into this county.

100 Years Ago – February 19, 1914

• Baker & Bullack have received the first carload of Fords ever shipped into Klickitat County this week, eight in number, which are all about sold. They were unloaded from the car on Tuesday. One of the cars was delivered at once to Frank Saxton.

• Matt Ahola’s house near Centerville had a narrow escape from burning down on the 3rd, as it has a hole about three feet in diameter burned through the roof.
