Front page of the Scranton Times from June 29, 1914
Scrantonians read about the assassination on Monday, June 29, 1914.  As you can see from the front page it wasn’t the only big news story of the day.  There were stories about the construction of St. Michael’s School for Boys in Wyoming County, a court ruling on mining and surface disturbances in North Scranton, a box kite causing a commotion in Green Ridge and Mayor Jermyn signing an ordinance that authorized paving and sewer line work in the city.
To read the articles about the assassination and the box kite visit http://blogs.thetimes-tribune.com/pages/index.php/2014/06/27/one-bullet/
