      Calhoun County buries time capsule for 50 years

      Leaving an inheritance for their children's children.

      Retired judge Malcolm Street quoted Proverbs 13:22 during his keynote speech at Calhoun County's time capsule dedication.

      The county buried a large stainless steel box containing items to represent the present which they leave for future generations. The time capsule is buried next to the front steps of the Calhoun County Courthouse, with instructions to dig it up on Wednesday, November 15, 2063.

      Circuit Clerk Eli Henderson came up with the idea. He said the builders of the Courthouse buried one in 1900, underneath a stone marker which celebrated the completion of the building at the beginning of the century.

      He said some people retrieved it in 1964, but the metal box rusted and the contents inside deteriorated.

      That should not be the case with the 2013 capsule.
