Bowling Green Mayor opens time capsule

Bowling Green Mayor Dick Edwards opened a time capsule Monday, Oct. 8, 2012, before the eyes of fourth-graders. The capsule, from 1913, was discovered when the Bowling Green school district's central administration building was demolished this summer. The almost 100 year-old contents included newspapers, the 1913 Bowling Green school yearbook, an itemized cost list for the building of the former school, a hairpin, several photos, and other items.
