Priceless documents lost to flood
By David Frownfelder
Daily Telegram Staff Writer
ADRIAN -- Surrounded by pages of history that had been savaged by
stormwater and torn to pieces, the Rev. Jim Simmons spent Thursday at
Adrian College sloshing through the remnants of the Lincoln Collection, a
treasure trove of history that documented 200 years of the United Methodist
Church in Michigan.
Simmons should have spent Thursday looking ahead to the future.

Denver library to archive police 'spy files'
By The Associated Press
06.18.04
DENVER — Mayor John Hickenlooper apologized yesterday for the thousands of "spy
files" kept by Denver police on members of peaceful protest groups over the past halfcentury,
saying the records will be archived for historical purposes.
"It was a general lack of oversight," Hickenlooper said, adding that police need to keep
intelligence files on criminals but not on protest groups. "Somehow we lost our way.
There was no legitimate reason to collect some of this information."

ST. LOUIS - On the surface, former Missouri Lt. Gov. Thomas Reynolds had everything:
a wife, community stature, a law practice in St. Louis.
But a coroner's inquest conducted at Lynch's Undertaking Establishment tells a different
story of Reynolds, who left Missouri briefly during the Civil War with other Confederate
exiles.

Galveston's Rosenberg Library turns 100
By Greg Barr
The Daily News
Published June 19, 2004
GALVESTON — If Henry Rosenberg had somehow been able to
time travel and drop by the second floor of the library that bears
his name on a hot, late spring day in 2004, he might have been in
for a shock.
Folks were lined up near a small open door, but not to read a
book. Instead, they were on a waiting list to use one of 27
machines with strange glowing screens in the Rosenberg Library
computer lab.

Search on state Web site was too vague
June 18, 2004
Your June 7 editorial about improvements that are needed to make the new

director of the State Library, which is responsible for the Google-like search
box on Oregon.gov, I must take some exception to your criticism of our
search box.

Texas documents yanked from auction
Associated Press
SAN ANTONIO -- A collection of historic Texas documents auctioned off in New York today brought
in $2.1 million, far more than expected after several of the most valuable items were taken off the table at
the last minute.
Three documents were removed today from the Texas Independence sale amid concerns they may have
been stolen years ago from state archives.

Footnote to a Royal Affair: Mr. Simpson's
Teary Moment
By ALAN COWELL
Published: June 18, 2004
ROME, June 17 - Finally, it was all just too unfunny.
As his former wife, Wallis Simpson, traversed Europe with the former king of England, Ernest
Simpson, the jettisoned husband in a royal love triangle, could no longer contain himself.
"For the second time I am disgraced in the club, where I dined tonight,'' he wrote on Oct. 14,
1937, in a note to his ex-wife on the letterhead of the Guards Club, Brook Street, London.
"The first time was when George Sebastian insisted on holding my hand throughout lunch,
remember? Tonight, I cried all through dinner. The tears are still trickling, even as I write.
Isn't it all too unfunny?''

Graham archives saved from fire
Religion News Service
The archives of the Billy Graham Center at Wheaton College in Wheaton, Ill., were
spared when a fire broke out June 8 in the roof of the center's auditorium.
Nearly 100 firefighters fought the blaze, and 200 people were evacuated from the
building, the college announced. Barrows Auditorium, a lecture hall used for conferences
and classes, was the only area that sustained damage. Classes had finished for the
summer, but some conferences may be affected by the fire. The cause is under
investigation.

COLUMBUS, MISS. - Temporary Columbus residents Gary and Mary Nelson have
reared 10 children, and today are the proud grandparents of 33 grandchildren, including
one newborn they've yet to meet.
But unlike most grandparents, the Nelsons do not spend their time snapping candid
photographs of their progeny. Instead, along with their eldest grandson Dan Nelson,
they are spending their days photographing old documents from remote county
courthouses.

Public document bill taken off agenda

By Sarah N. Lynch
Journal staff writer
HOBOKEN - Much to the chagrin of People For Open Government, the City
Council decided to remove the Electronic Accessibility of Public Information
Ordinance off its agenda Wednesday evening.
The council opted to do so during its pre-meeting caucus after city attorney Joe
Sherman raised several concerns he had in two sections of the ordinance.
