Memorial Day Services Held At Elgin Area Cemeteries

May 28, 2014 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

Just as they have for generations, Elgin area residents showed Monday they have not forgotten their loved ones who have served our nation, as well as family who are no longer with us.
Memorial Day 2014 was all about words and thoughts spoken from the heart, flowers and decorations placed on graves and remembering the heroes of wars never to be forgotten.
Pastor Janet Davis of Park Congregational UCC, spoke at Park Cemetery west of Elgin. First she spoke of the history of Decoration Day. The original date, she said, was chosen as May 30, 1868 because it was believed to be that flowers would be in bloom all over the country. But, history shows that another action taken place on May 1, 1865 was equally important. It was then that former slaves in Charleston, S.C. chose to honor 257 dead Union solders who had been buried in a mass grave in a Confederate prison camp. They dug up the bodies and worked for two weeks to give them a proper burial as gratitude for fighting for their freedom. They then held a parade of 10,000 people led by 2,800 African-American children where they marched, sang and celebrated.

One in a series of meetings across northeast Nebraska to provide information about the proposed merger between Central Valley Ag (CVA) and United Farmers Cooperative (UFC) will be held in Elgin this week.
The informational meeting is scheduled for Friday, May 30, at 7:30 a.m. at the KC Hall in Elgin.
It will be one of three such meetings in the area. A meeting in Humphrey will be held at Club 81 at noon.
Another meeting will begin at 6 p.m. at the CVA office in St. Edward.
Last March, the boards of Directors for both CVA and UFC unanimously approved and entered into a Letter of Intent to finalize an Agreement and Plan of Merger which, should it be approved by members and stockholders of the two cooperatives, would result in a merger.
UFC serves patrons in 22 counties in Nebraska and Kansas from 32 locations by a team of more than 235 fulltime employees.
CVA has a team of 494 employees to provide grain, agronomy and feed services to customers at 34 locations throughout 27 counties in Nebraska.

Four Children Injured As Vehicle Strikes Tent

May 28, 2014 by lmorgan · Comments Off 

“They definitely had an angel watching out for them last night.”
Those were the words Antelope County Sheriff Bob Moore used to describe an incident of a vehicle striking a tent where five children were inside, injuring four late Sunday night.
Stephen Barrington, 42, of Oakdale, was taken into custody, without incident, by the Nebraska State Patrol Sunday night at the location of the accident, 708 Fifth Street in Oakdale. He was being held Monday at the Antelope County Sheriff’s Department.
Sheriff Moore said the incident occurred at approximately 10:45 p.m. He said an argument between Barrington and his wife led to Barrington allegedly driving a 1998 Plymouth Voyager Sport van into their back yard, over a fire pit and into the tent where the five children, ages 8 to 13, were. The van belongs to Francis Barrington of Oakdale.
Moore said Barrington, realizing what he had done, began to render aid to the children until rescue personnel arrived.
“He’s terribly remorseful today,” Moore said Monday.
Responding to the scene were, in addition to the Antelope County Sheriff’s Office and the Nebraska State Patrol, Midwest Medical, Tilden Fire & Rescue, Neligh Rescue and the Neligh Police Department.
One youth was taken to Faith Regional Hospital in Norfolk where he was listed in stable condition Monday. Three other youths were taken to Antelope Memorial Hospital in Neligh, two were treated and released and another was kept overnight for observation and has since been released.
Moore said Barrington was charged with driving under the influence, and reckless driving. Judge Taylor on Monday set bond at $20,000 with a 10 percent provision.
Law enforcement were still investigating the accident Monday afternoon.
