Thank you, Action Line

Fifty years ago this week, the Miami Herald’s Action Line came to the aid of a young couple that needed help getting a marriage license in time for their wedding.

We were that young couple — Gene O. Petersen and Bette M. Anderson. We are celebrating our 50th wedding anniversary this Saturday at Lake Tahoe and once again want to thank Action Line and the Miami Herald for your assistance at that time.

We live in California and enjoy our two sons, their wives and their children tremendously.

We wrote to Action Line when we had been married for 10 years and again when we celebrated our 25th anniversary. We could not let our 50th anniversary go by without saying “Thank you” again.

Bette M. and

Gene O. Petersen,

Santa Maria, Calif.
