Letters To The Editor

TO Haas Helps

Fairbury Family

Dear Editor,

Blue Valley Community Action Head Start greatly appreciated T.O. Haas Tires for their kind donation to one of our families.

Isaac Corter, son of Jim and Heather Corter, is battling cancer and receiving his treatments in Omaha. Their tires were very worn and Steve Glanz and T.O. Haas generously donated four new tires so the family could continue their trips safely.

It is inspiring to see a local business embrace the Community Action pledge, "Helping People. Changing Lives."

On behalf of the Corter family and Blue Valley Community Action, your help was very much appreciated, T.O. Haas!

Sincerely,

Eve Tomlinson

Blue Valley Community

Looking Back

120 YEARS AGO, 1891

The Fairbury Gazette

Jefferson County exhibitors took most of the state fair premiums offered for grapes.

The Rock Island opened a station, "Buckley," later known as "Thompson," where its line to Belleville crossed the Burlington.

A"madstone" failed to adhere to the dog bite wound of a local little girl who had been bitten by a dog, taken as proof the dog wasn't "mad."

110 YEARS AGO, 1901

Among Harbine items in The Journal, "An automobile passed through town this week."
