The Lincoln Food Bank will be distributing food again at the corner west of the Unadilla Park from 10-11 a.m., Wednesday, August 4. Please help spread the word! In March they served 63 families, 74 in April, 70 in May, and 80 in June. They have helped so many, please tell them thank you if you get the chance.
Just a reminder: please do not let grass from mowing your lawns get thrown into the street; it clogs up the storm drains and is dangerous to both motorcycle and bicycle riders. Thank you!
Unadilla Cardinals are Class D State runner up! They lost the first game and the championship game to The Brass Rail. They scored 56 runs in 3 games on Sunday, which we are told is unheard of in fast pitch softball! Congratulations guys!!!

Thanks for all your responses to last weeks news. I espcially enjoyed those from Jenny Stilwell and Jane Lewis. The telephone office was where Jane Lewis lives now. And Dale Isaacs called to say that J.H. Meyers had his business on the second floor of the old gas station that was where the scales/office on Main Street is now. I sort of remember a second story but don't think I was ever up there; it belonged to Charles and Norman Clark when I was a kid.
Covid cases are rising in Nebraska again. It has been suggested by several officials that we return to wearing masks in public. If you do it, so will your kids and grandkids. Let's put an end to this thing!
Folks think the Otoe County Fair was a success this year. Heard lots of good things and saw a mini-ferris wheel in action. There were pickups and campers everywhere! Did any of you try the zip line?
