Sherlock & Segar: Unveiling of statue, time capsule burial all coming on Dec. 7
Imagine how eager you would be this coming Dec. 7, if you could peer inside a time capsule that had been buried in Chester 75 years ago. On Dec. 7, 1944, World War II war was raging, and every family had or knew of at least one soldier or sailor in harm's way. The Chester basketball team was mired in a forgettable season, and a severe July storm had taken out sections of the Chester Bridge (it wouldn't reopen until 1946). Elzie Segar would have turned 50 on Dec. 7, 1944, had he not died six years before.
