Some Angels Dont Need Wings: Navarro Helps Save Childs Life While Rushing to Storm Spotters Class

Photo caption: Photos by Sandy Zabokrtsky/Fairbury Journal News Andrew Ebke and Amanda Stevens stand with their son Oakley who recently had an unexpected seizure. Thanks to Branden Krist Navarro who stopped to help, he is okay, and his parents are forever grateful.

Most angels use their wings to arrive but there are some angels who come on the tail of a slow moving truck.

At least that is the way that Amanda Stevens and Andrew Ebke feel.

Recently their son, Oakley, had been sick but they thought he was getting better.

I had just left him with Grandma while I was at work, Stevens said. They had been playing when all of sudden Oakley had a seizure; he has never had one before so everyone was scared.

History Books are in the Works

History Books are in the Works

The Fairbury Journal News has decided to once again to develop a history book on Fairbury. This new plan will be a two-volume series. The first volume will be from the 1930s to the 1959. The second volume will be from 1960 to modern times.

The two-volume set will be a pictorial history of never before seen photos. There are so many photos that it has become necessary to go to two volumes.

The hard-bound books will concentrate on the life of the Fairbury as they went about their everyday life. The pictures are sure to pique the memories of many a person as they turn the pages for a short trip down memory lane. For others the trip will be a reminder of what life was like when their grandparents lived in Fairbury.
