From the archives of The Daily News for March 6:

In 1914, Galveston Chief of Police W.H. Perrett said he was in favor of a public whipping post — and was willing to do the whipping himself — for wife-beaters, wayward sons and cocaine traffickers.

In 1964, a five-member committee was appointed by the Galveston City Council to look into the city’s hiring practices.

In 1989, a baby less than 10 hours old was found behind the Holiday Inn, 5201 Interstate 45, in La Marque wrapped in a thin blanket in freezing temperatures.
