From the archives of The Daily News for March 26:
- In 1914, the county judge and a pair of county commissioners drove the streets of Galveston for a road inspection. Officials made the trip primarily to look into the necessity for two bridges on 61st Street at Offatts Bayou. A pair of wooden structures carrying traffic at the two points was deemed in need of serious repair.
- In 1964, a meeting to discuss the proposed multimillion-dollar Clear Creek flood control project featured county judges from the four counties involved — Galveston, Brazoria, Harris and Fort Bend.
- In 1989, Galveston Police Chief Bob Steen and Galveston County Sheriff Joe Max Taylor said spring break crowds behaved better than in the past.
