Robert “Bud” Holden has seen a lot. He graduated from Harrison High School in the class of ’38, the same class as Harrison’s World War II hero Buddy Hines, and the same year Bob Hope starred in his first movie.
The 94-year-old Holden has lived long, loved deeply, and accomplished much in the years he’s been given.



A 22-year-old man has been charged with arson by Harrison police after allegedly setting three fires Monday, Dec. 8, in the men’s bathroom of the Big Lots on New Haven Road.
