Children turn spotlight on Melvin



June 20, 2012 - 12:00 AM

Charlie Melvin, Iola’s Mad Bomber of 1905 tavern-wrecking fame, is making a come- back.

Having hopped on a time machine before he died, Melvin fast-forwarded to present day Iola and plans to take another explosive whack at buildings in downtown Iola Saturday morning.

To stop Melvin before he can do damage, three contemporary kids found the time machine and summoned help from noted Iolans of yesteryear, Gen. Fred Funston, Iola Colborn and Tom Bowlus, as well as Piqua’s Buster Keaton, Moran’s Debbie Barnes and Dorothy and Toto.
