History

Sunday is the 50th anniversary of a storm that drowned four people -- three brothers went out onto the pier and were swept off the pier by the waves, and one of the three Coast Guard members who attempted to rescue them also drowned. Tom Mackay was a friend of Edgar Culbertson, the Coast Guard member who drowned, and sits by a plaque honoring him in Canal Park.  (Clint Austin / Forum News Service)
