Fire burns part of historic block in Gallipolis GALLIPOLIS, Ohio (AP) A fire destroyed three buildings Saturday and threatened several historic buildings in the downtown business district of this Ohio River city. The fire, two blocks south of City Hall, started around 5 p.m. and destroyed a clothing store, a sporting goods store and an insurance building, said Stephen Wilson, 911 director for Gallia County. Police said two apartments above the insurance building were evacuated. No one was injured. Wilson said authorities believe the fire started at the Haskins-Tanner Clothiers and spread north to the adjacent buildings. Several of the 22 buildings on the block are on the National Register of Historic Places, including the Haskins-Tanner building, he said.

Eye Center Father still has faith that daughter will come home TOLEDO (AP) Mike Anderson still waits for his daughter to walk through the front door. Since she vanished 20 years ago from a law office where she worked, Anderson has retired from his job, buried two wives, and become a grandfather several times. But he has never changed the phone number at his home, in . part, because his daughter might call. He'll pick up the phone, he imagines, and hear children in the background. Hi Dad, she'll say. I've got kids. I'm sorry. I've had amnesia. How are you? "They tell me I'm crazy," he says, rubbing his hands over a face that has worn too much sadness. "Maybe I am. But what am I supposed to do? Give up? Seems like everyone else has." It has been 20 years since Cynthia Anderson disappeared. Her fate remains one of Toledo's most intriguing mysteries. Her smiling face has appeared on flyers worldwide. Her case, which has been on national television, is the longest active Toledo police missing persons case. It fills nearly an entire file cabinet drawer.

(AP) "You knew right away that office doors when she was something was wrong," said James Rabbit, the attorney who found his office eerily empty that day. "You knew she wasn't coming back." Though she was profoundly religious and even a sweetly naive woman, Anderson's final known days were spooked by suspicious calls, an ominously scrawled spray-paint message and even haunting dreams. It was enough that the normally private woman had an emergency buzzer installed at her desk, and Rabbit instructed her to lock the Fifth St. LICKING COUNTY AMERICAN LEGION: 7:30 p.m. first Mondaysecond Monday in September; Licking County Administration Building, room B, 20 S.
