Bob & I were planning on a trip to Scenic, South Dakota, this past weekend to replace the tombstone on my great-grandfather David Hopkins Fisk's grave. But in light of the historic snowstorm that buried the whole area, we headed east to Burlington, Iowa. My sister Mary went with us and our first stop was the "Axe Murder House" in Villisca, Iowa, and the cemetery there where Bob's great-great-grandparents are buried.

Then we visited Fisk, Trulock and Brooks graves in the Aspen cemetery at Burlington. Bob drove us down Snake Alley (I couldn't look) and we went down to the water front, which was mostly under water.

There are also some amazing homes and buildings in the waterfront district.

We crossed over the Mississippi and went to Nauvoo, Illinois, to the Mormon settlement in the "Flats". On the way home we stopped at the cemetery at Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, and found more Fisk relatives and of course, there's a wonderful little quilt shop there along with Iowa Wesleyan University.

We couldn't drive past Winterset, Iowa, without stopping at the new John Wayne Museum: "A man's gotta do what a man's gotta do!" We had went through the house where he was born many years ago, but the new museum has a little theater and some well thought out displays. I loved the old station wagon that had been "customized" for him - it even had a third row seat! But best of all was crossing the Missouri and turning on to H Road - we fit a lot of sightseeing into 2 days!

Condolences to the family and friends of Viola Wachter, who passed on October 9th. She and her sister, Dorothy, had their own cafe at one time and worked the early shift at Horstman's Cafe. Her fried chicken and plate-sized pancakes couldn't be beat. You will be missed Vi.

Night of Murder 490








2019 10 09 Found photo

Recently I was in Nebraska City when I ran into an old friend.  As we were visiting, another lady overheard that I used to live in Plattsmouth and showed me this photo.  She said she lives in or near Percival, Iowa and after the recent flooding this photo was found on her property.  Because of the background showing Steube's Jack and Jill, we determined it was taken in front of the former Community Center across the street.  It looks like it could have been a milestone birthday celebration or retirement party.  The date on the photo is June 24, 2006.  If you, or someone you know, lost some belongings due to the floods, and would like this original picture back, contact Pat, at 402-235-2926, or  This email address is being protected from spambots.

Let's help reunite this photo with its owner.






What Do I Need To Know About Recovery Therapies?

Those who receive rehabilitation and therapy services are typically individuals recovering from an injury, a surgery or are coping with a chronic condition such as Parkinson’s, multiple sclerosis or Alzheimer’s disease.

When it comes to where therapy can be provided, several options exist. Individuals can arrange outpatient therapy by appointment in a gym, or for those who may not have access to transportation, therapists can provide sessions in the comfort of their home. Short-stay rehabilitation is also a great option for people who have recently had a hospital stay and need expert assistance from skilled nurses before successfully returning home. This quick stay provides convenient living accommodations with customized therapy sessions.

There are a few major therapy types available; all work together with the goal of getting a person back to their prior level of functioning:

  • ·Physical therapy—physical therapists, physical therapy aides and home health aides work to improve the individuals’ overall body function, focusing on balance, walking and moving about and muscle strength
  • ·Occupational therapy—occupational therapists help individuals improve self-care skills such as dressing, preparing food and even managing a checkbook
  • ·Speech therapy—speech/language pathologists work with individuals to improve communication, memory, cognition and swallowing
