Remember When Pigs Roamed the Neighborhood

It’s been a good time to catch up on my reading of the Crosby-Ironton Courier. I refuse to throw one in the recycling bin until I’ve read it from cover to cover. I obviously fell quite far behind because several of the issues in the reading pile are from May 2019! One of my favorite sections is “Remember When”. It features tidbits of news from the past 105 years. The one’s that mention me are my favorite but I haven’t found any of those yet. But I did find out about a runaway pig!

The paper reported a pig was on the loose in my neighborhood in 1914. Someone on my street found him but the finder stated in the Courier they weren’t giving him back unless the owner paid for the ad and the pig’s keep. Clearly not the charitable type. Lucky that pig isn’t running around the neighborhood today. He’d be stashed away in the guest bedroom along with 100 rolls of toilet paper!!
