Equine Horse Virus Stretches Across Midwest

Photo caption: Contributed Photo Darby Zaremba and her barrel racing horse Hank. She and her family traveled to the Bar B Barrel Racing event at the Lancaster Event Center. After returning home to Kansas a few days later Hank became ill and with 48 hours they were forced to euthanize him. He was later diagnosed with EHV-1 virus that was the neurological strain.

One young girl, Darby Zaremba and her family are suffering the loss of a beloved and family owned barrel racing horse, Hank, due to an outbreak of the equine herpes virus, EHV-1, thought to be contracted at the Lancaster Event Center.

The Zaremba family had traveled from Kansas to Lincoln for the Double B Barrel racing event at the Lancaster Event Center. The path of the virus is difficult to follow but it is a path that horse owners, especially those who travel and show horses, need to pay attention to.

Endicott Village Life Visit # 31 - The Redbird

Volume IV, Number 5, October 6, 1937, Continued.

DIVIDE PAIR WITH REYNOLDS.Fridayproved to be an unlucky day for the Redbirds, as they lost a softball game to Reynolds by a one point margin. The game, although partly played in the rain, was very close and exciting.

At the end of the third inning Reynolds was ahead 13 to 1, and the Redbirds were in a tight spot. However, as the last half of the seventh inning started the score was 16 to 15, in favor of Endicott. With Reynolds at bat in the bottom of the seventh, Elgert reached first base and K. Schwisow hit a home run, winning the game for Reynolds 17 to 16.

On the Endicott team were Vaughn, Branson, DeBusk, D. Swartz, Bakewell, E. Swartz, Troxel, M. Swett, Fagenbush and Bennett.

The Endicott girls were more fortunate than the boys, winning from the Reynolds girls 13 to 11.
