CLINTON - A third book of Terry Ingano's Strange But True stories has been published. Most of the stories were previously published in The Item.

The proceeds of the book benefit the Item Appeal, a nonprofit based in Clinton that helps neighbors in need.

Books are $20 each. Until November, a complete set of all three volumes can be purchased for $30.

The series of books is for the Clintonian in your life, or for anyone interested in a quirky view of history. Stories in volume three add a lot celebrity sparkle to the history of Clinton, including Agnes Moorehead's roots in the community, the day Sammy Davis Jr. came to town and actor Stephen Soldi, of Clinton, an uncredited bit player who appeared in many movies, including the Marx Brother's "A Night at the Opera." There is a story of a reverend who was a linebacker and the disastrous Clinton High football season of 1931-32.

Photos show very different views of the Clinton business district and Central Park.

The book was produced by Dunn and Company's David Dunn.

Books are available at the Item office, 156 Church St., Sunrise Boutique, 62 High St., The Holder Memorial (the home of the Clinton Historical Society), 210 Church St., and Thurston House, 75 Green St., all in Clinton.
