Endicott Village Life Visit # 16 - The Redbird

We will continue our visits with more excerpts from the Endicott High School Newspaper, The Redbird.

The Jan. 19, 1949 issue reported that the Dale Swartzs have announced the grand opening of their new cafe business which will be known as Dales Cafe and Recreation.

Swartzs recently purchased the building known as the Bank Building from Mrs. Jones and it is being completely redecorated.

A couple of weeks later the brickyard made headlines. A special article accompanied by two interesting pictures of the Endicott Brick and Tile Company appeared in the Nebraska Farmer under the heading They Grind Soil to Make Wall Flour.

In 1919 the Fairchild Brothers started the plant when this unusual clay deposit was found while removing gravel sometime before the first World War.

Letters To The Editor

The Unknown Politician

Editor:

What needs to be said to (make me known).

We need people, ordinary God fearing people, running this country, NOT the professional, career seekers who wish to change our constitution.

Those who know that you cant spend money you dont have.

Not those who worry about the unlikely event of killing an innocent death row inmate, yet support the killing of (ABSOLUTE INNOCENTS) by the thousands each day since Roe vs Wade, serving to eliminate a voter and tax base. No wonder so few workers to fund social security. Because of that lack of millions, the liberals had to create the (give me, go get me, let me have, hand me) population to guarantee their elections.

We need those who know that men dont marry men, or women, women! Those, who know that kids need a mother (and) a father, who are married, and will teach their children moral and monetary values.

Are You Better Off Now?

This week I harken back to the words of President Ronald Regan as he used a single sentence to take the White House away from Jimmy Carter in 1980.

Are You Better Off Now Than You Were Four Years Ago?

Back in 1980 our nation faced doom as the economy was nearly collapsed and gasoline shot up to more than $1 per gallon. We all thought the end was near.

Gasoline shortages caused long lines of people waiting for their turn to buy fuel and often consumers were limited to five or 10 gallons per visit. Interest rates were so high that people could no longer purchase houses and cars.

We all looked towards a famous actor and Governor of California named Ronald Regan.

Regan had it all going on. He was smart, quick on his feet, funny as the day is long and not Jimmy Carter.

He was our savior; at least we thought he was.

Ask the Gnome

As Ive been out bearding locals, discussing human trafficking and raising support for Ive Got A Name, people have questions about just exactly what all this fuss is about. Thankfully, the Fairbury Journal-News is working with me Harry the Gnome, to bring you some answers to these frequently asked

questions.

Does trafficking really happen in Nebraska?

Weve heard the statistic from UNICEF that 1 million children around the globe enter the sex trade annually, but did you know that it is estimated 300,000 of those are within the borders of the United States?
