- A season that began with such promise for the Washington Redskins has unraveled in rapid fashion. The team's record dropped to 0-2 here Sunday, and they looked stunningly overmatched in the process, surrendering the game's first 31 points as the Green Bay Packers coasted to a 38-20 victory at Lambeau Field. "We knew in order to win here in this venue, we had to play one of our better games," Redskins coach Mike Shanahan said. "And obviously we didn't do that today. I thought we almost had to play error-free football, play one of our better games, and we probably did just the opposite in the first half.

"I felt so comfortable here that I never moved," explained Mildred Zeller, whose parents were original owners of a house in Rodgers Forge. Her parents moved to Dunkirk Road (second group of homes built by Keelty) in 1937 or 1938 and she was born a few years later. As you can imagine, the houses sold for a great deal less than they do today. Houses were $5,000 and only required a $250 down payment. Mildred said it only cost $500 to finish off the third floor with heat, hardwood floors and a cedar closet.
