Nebraskan Artist Highlighted At Local Antique Shop


The Antiques, Collectibles & Art shop in Hebron is able to display many different paintings done by Gale Walton, a Nebraskan, who was a amateur painter and spent many years painting Nebraska scenery as he saw it as he traveled across the state. Photos by Fairbury Journal News
 Being a collector of antiques, collectibles and art means keeping an eye out for the unexpected find.  Joane Thompson of Hebron has been doing just that for the majority of her life.  Recently she happened upon several paintings by a little known Nebraska artist, Gale Walton.
“I was really excited to happen on this find,” Thompson said.  “These paintings that I have are all of Nebraska and I really think that it is a wonderful find.”
Thompson travels through several states buying and selling original art, furniture, lighting, jewelry and dishware.  She has a shop in Hebron called Antiques, Collectibles and Art on Lincoln Ave.  
Originally from the west coast Thompson has settled in Nebraska although she still travels to select shows throughout the western states.

Jefferson Intermediate Playground Project


Angie Judd, PTA member accepts a $2,000 check that is being presented by Optimist President, Twyla Bray and Optimist Vice-president Carol Sprunk. The money is a portion of the proceeds from this summer’s firework stand. Contributed photo
The Optimist was able to present a check for $2,000 to the PTA to be placed towards the Jefferson Intermediate School playground.  The check was made possible through the coordinated efforts of  PTA members and the Optimist Club in one of their major fund raisers.
This summer the PTA, as well as volunteers from the Bonham Theatre project coordinated with the Fairbury Optimist Club in selling fireworks at the Optimist fireworks stand.  The fireworks tent is one of the largest money making projects that the Optimist Club participates in during the year.  Having the additional support from members of two of the projects that will benefit from the fireworks proceeds also in turn helps support the Optimist members efforts.
