Condolences to the many family and friends of Berdean West

who passed away 10-11-2018. She was a lifelong resident of

Unadilla, had a great sense of humor, and was a great person 

to visit with, especially when it came to all my questions about 

history. You will be missed Berdean.

The Flag Disposal Ceremony was held Tuesday evening,

October 9, at the Post Home in Syracuse. There were 52 

patriots of all ages, and thankfully it didn't rain the whole

time! Thank you to the Boy Scouts, Girl Scouts, and High

School speakers who attended. The older kids are such an

inspiration to the younger ones. And thank you to the Legion

Auxiliary for serving the lunch. Hope to see you all and some

sunshine next year!

Saturday the Rescue Squad ended up having their garage

sale in the gym. It was well attended and they would like to

thank everyone for their support. It went a long way to paying

off the gurney and power unit. (You can still donate!)

Then in the afternoon the medical helicopter landed on the

ball field at the park. The flight crew explained operations

and demonstrated how patients were loaded into the helicopter

to see inside and actually be able to set in there. Thanks

Unadilla Volunteer Fire & Rescue for the opportunity!

Friday, 10-18-2018, The Otoe Union:

"Fred Wallen reports that wolves caught three of his sheep."

Otoe County men "have been called for entrainment on or

about October 22 for Camp Bowie, Texas." The flu was

making its way through North Russell. The Fairmont creamery

"commenced business in the Farmers implement house."

Men were cutting walnut logs east of town to be used by the

government in the making of gun stocks.
