Stories of the federal shutdown
Placeholder Image
This week is National Newspaper Week but I felt that the federal government shutdown was more important and was struck by several things during the week I wanted to share. It’s been a while. The last shutdown occurred 18 years ago in two parts: Nov. 14-19, 1995, and again from Dec. 16, 1995, to Jan. 6, 1996 -- a total of 28 days.
