Sentinel reporter Joseph Cress offers a daily digital glimpse back in Cumberland County history with help from our Newspapers.com archives:

25 Years Ago

About 75 anti-nuclear activists stood at the gates of the Three Mile Island power plant to mark the 15th anniversary of nation’s worst commercial nuclear accident. They stood for almost an hour holding candles and singing songs against nuclear power and nuclear waste. At 4 a.m., the activists held a moment of silence to commemorate the exact time the accident began. TMI guards watched the protest behind a fence. When some protesters crossed a blue line marking the limit of the public right-of-way, state police arrived and persuaded them to move back.
