Looking Back

120 YEARS AGO, 1891

The Fairbury Gazette

Opening of the Rock Island railroad line from Fairbury to Lincoln and Omaha changed the direction of business originating here, to Nebraska. Previously, it trended toward St. Joseph, Mo., over Rock Island and St. Joseph & Grand Island railroad lines.

Ed Reese and John Mendenhall shipped 201 head of fat steers to Chicago, averaging 1,450 pounds.

Some broom corn was raised in this county. It was claimed that it would produce one-third ton per acre, worth $75 to $100.

The German settlers held a big picnic in Baker's Grove west of Fairbury, with S.M. Bailey as the orator.

Lady Jeffs Linksters Fifth At Beatrice Invite

A steady breeze, warm weather and a challenging course made for a long day Monday for the Fairbury Lady Jeffs golf team at the Beatrice Invitational.

Fairbury placed fifth out of six teams competing on the Beatrice Country Club course.

The Lady Jeffs shot a team score of 413 with just four golfers competing.

Omaha Duchesne Academy won the invite with a score of 295.

"Beatrice's Country Club is one of the more difficult courses we will see and play on during the season," Lady Jeffs golf coach Jed Martin replied.

"We had some scores that may not indicate that we played real well, but they are definitely bright spots we can take away from it," Martin said.

Rachel Snyder led Fairbury with an 18-hole score of 114, Shalyse Ahl fired a 116, Julia Hill carded a 117, and Katie Umland shot a 162.

Paced by a three-hit fourth inning, the Lady Jeffs tacked on four additional runs to extend their lead to 5-0.

Freeman got on the board in the bottom of the fifth inning on a double followed by a Fairbury error.
