Steinauer Heritage House dedicates Veteran's Wall

On June 14, Flag Day, at 1 PM, the Steinauer Community Heritage House hosted a formal dedication of its new Veteran’s Wall of Honor.

A book documenting his tour in Korea is available for viewing. Soon after his initial donation, other photographs and biographies were received.

Two local men go on 435 mile Bike Ride Across Nebraska

By Ray Kappel

There were two men with local ties who went on the 435 Bike Ride Across Nebraska June 3-June 10, Vic Faesser and Ken Wherry.

They more or less rode together, as they put it, with Faesser doing more stopping to see the sights than Wherry. Faesser described Wherry as a “tough, old bird” who was going on his first BRAN. Faesser has completed his 28th BRAN.

Local fishermen and the catch of the da

By Ray Kappel

Ron Gilbert was approaching his 75th birthday when he was fishing with a friend at Pony Creek north of Sabetha. All of a sudden, a big fish rolled up in the water and his friend remarked he wished the fish was on his line. Then it struck Ron’s line.

Gilbert said it took about 10 minutes to land and weighed in at 13 pounds. It was a catfish, his favorite kind of fish. He didn’t know it, but there was a surprise birthday party the family took him to that was a fish fry. There were more than 100 people there. His fish came in handy as he and another person fried the fish for the fry. They fried between 50 and 60 pounds of fish.

PC laundromat to open Friday

By Ray Kappel

The long wait is about over.

Since then, PCDC took the burnt buildings over to restore them. Jerry Graham contributed $25,000 and PCDC covered the rest. Graham had been the last owner of the laundromat.
