Diode Diaper Drive Started in Diller

Photo caption: Photo by Sandy Zabokrtsky/Fairbury Journal News The Diode Diaper Drive was started by a handful of employees and supported by the company as they saw a need and decided they could make a difference. Pictured from left are Danni Starck, Kathryn Quiel, Leatha Christ, Angie McMurray and Peggy Hemphill. These ladies are the driving force behind this movement.

Everyone reads articles, some of them good and some with bad news. One Fairbury resident read an article with depressing information and decided that she and her co-workers could do something about it.

120 Years Ago

1893

The Jefferson County Journal

A new Nebraska law banned quail hunting.

A central charity organization in Fairbury included three businessmen, one member from each of the churches, the Womens Christian Temperance Union and the Womens Relief Corps.

Nettie Paden, teacher in District No. 78 (one mile east and 1 south of Thompson) listed these honor pupils: Ellie and Millie Fickett, Dairy and Rollie Hughes, Samuel Long, Katie Quinn, Gertie Rhode, and Amy and George Wheeler.

110 Years Ago

1903

The Fairbury Journal

A court suit sought $1,500 from the County Agriculture Society, and it was feared the fairgrounds at the west edge of the city (now City Park) would have to be sold.

The Journal took a strong stand for a womens restroom in the courthouse.
