Supper guests of Frank & Joyce Schulze on October 15 were:
Emma Porter, Riley Porter, Chuck & Susanna Porter, and
Corey Schulze and Sharon Demaree. Also attending were
3 friends of Emma's, who are exchange students at UNK, where
Emma is also a student. They were: Nanami Fujita from Osaka,
Japan, Yunjin Kwon from Goyang-Si, South Korea, and Benedikt
Kramer from Augsburg, Germany. It was a most enjoyable
evening, learning their impressions (they love Nebraska!) and
discussing the customs of each country.

Is it because of all the rain we've had lately that the fall
foliage is so beautiful? Bob and I visited one of our favorite

We stopped at Mincer Orchard for a caramel apple and some

The book “Killers of the Flower Moon: The Osage Murders and the Birth of the FBI” has been chosen for the 2018 One Book—One Lincoln Community reading program. The book revisits a shocking series of crimes in which dozens of people were murdered in cold blood. Based on years of research and startling new evidence, the book is a masterpiece of narrative nonfiction, as each step in the investigation reveals a series of sinister secrets and reversals. But more than that, it is a searing indictment of the callousness and prejudice toward American Indians that allowed the murderers to operate with impunity for so long. Your Unadilla Library has this fascinating read on its shelves — stop in and check it out.
