BLAST From the PAST

Someone stole sheets and clothing from clothes lines in Aransas Pass twice in one week according to the Progress. The Great Depression of the 1930s had seen improvement in the economy in 1937, but then another downturn in 1938. The Aransas Pass clothesline thefts happened this week in 1938, so the Blast assumes the thief, or thieves, needed sheets and clothes and had no means to procure them. Although the Progress headlines throughout that decade announced the days and times charities were providing food, clothing, and bedding, it could be the need was urgent. The Blast will try to see this in the best light possible.

BLAST From the PAST

The Aransas Pass Progress rarely has sensational crime to report. For more than a century, the front page has mostly carried news of street and sewer projects, improvements at the harbor, and announcements from local industries. Tropical weather is often on the front page and hurricanes make landings on page one, as well. The inside pages are typically where school and sports are printed, but in the middle of 1900s school and sports dominated the front page.
