It’s always enlightening to look through the pieces of history we publish in The Facts, especially those items from our own archives.

When we shuffled our staff a while back, it became easiest for me to take over the task of putting together our weekly Yesteryears feature. As the person in the newsroom whose chair has collected the most cobwebs, that institutional knowledge made it easier to identify which items from 75, 50 and 15 years ago would be most likely to interest southern Brazoria County residents.
