Alzheimer's Caregivers Support Group To Meet

The Alzheimer's Caregivers Support Group will meet on Monday, March 19, at 6 p.m. in the Solarium Conference Room at Jefferson Community Health Center.

The program will be a DVD, "Caregivers," about caring for people in different stages of Alzheimer's Disease. We will be watching Part 3. The program is designed so segments can be watched individually.

A support group is a gathering of people with common problems, needs and interests which allows them to share their feelings, thoughts and experiences in a combined effort to survive the shared problems. It may include family members, caregivers, friends and other individuals interested in sharing information and giving and receiving support.

Those who have been diagnosed with Alzheimer's Disease themselves are also welcome to attend the meetings.

Looking Back

120 Years Ago 1892

The Fairbury Gazette

W. H. Ferris was publishing the Rustler, Harbine's newspaper.

Samples of tobacco seed were sent to local farmers from Washington D.C. to try out. (Same fate as the silk industry 10 years later).

An institute to cure the liquor and tobacco habits was started at Steele City, using bichloride of gold. One patient reported cured from Washington, Kan.

A fire destroyed L.J. Nutzman's Fairbury cigar factory.

***********

110 Years Ago 1902

The Fairbury Gazette

Kerosene at 9 cents a gallon was considered a "wonderful value" here.

Letters To The Editor

Home Remedies

That Didn't

Work So Well

Editor:

After reading Maurice Cumro's article about his mother using goose grease and turpentine for a cold I got to thinking.

As a kid I spent a lot of time running around with a bacon rind taped to my foot. It was supposed to draw out a sticker. It didn't work and neither did the goose grease and turpentine for a cold.

That hot toddy his mother gave him might of helped. Did you know goose grease is liquid at room temperature? As a kid I did get turpentine used on me. It worked. Every time I got a cut or a scratch it got dabbed with turpentine, hurt like hell. It hurt so bad all wounds were hidden to keep the turpentine away so I guess it worked.
