On This Day in 1978:

A cooling tower for a power plant under construction in Willow Island, West Virginia collapses, killing 51 construction workers in what is thought to be the largest construction accident in U.S. history. OSHA cited contractors for 20 violations, including failures to field test concrete. The cases were settled for $85,000—about $1,700 per worker killed.

Spring 2016 Golf Tournament
Updated On: Jun 16, 2016

Congratulations to Ed SellersMike Brian, and Al Debelius (New Penn) for their first place win in the Local's bi-annual golf event held Saturday, June 11th, at the Hog Neck Golf Course in Easton, Md.

Teams teed off at 8:30 a.m. in a modified shotgun start format, finishing the 18-hole course at the same time in just under five hours. The weather, though a little windy, cooperated with the golfers; warm sun and cool beverages made for a perfect day on the course. Libations and lunch under the club's shaded outdoor pavilion topped off the day.
