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.

Ragland Talks About Sweet Creations

Photo caption: Photo by Sandy Zabokrtsky /Fairbury Journal-NewsCarmen Ragland stands in front of the cases that she fills six out of seven days a week with fresh sweet rolls and other delicacies that people in Fairbury have come to love. Her sweet rolls and coffee shop which sells coffee, lunches and good conversation on a daily basis is a strong attraction for the community.

Sweet Creations, more than just a gathering place for coffee and conversation.

It is also more than a basement sweets shop, where you can get large cinnamon rolls. Sweet Creations is a dream and a passion that has carried Carmen Ragland through her whole life.

I guess you can say I got started when I used to help my grandmother, Ragland said. Grandma would never have store bought bread in her house but as she got older her arms and shoulders couldnt stand the kneading, that is where I came in.
