Covering Dallas, Monmouth, Independence, Falls City and surrounding areas since 1868

Twenty teens from Pedee and Kings Valley attended the "Acquire the Fire" youth event April 19-20 in Eugene.
They stayed at former Pedee Church pastor Mitch Lee's church near there and heard several Christian bands and motivational speakers, coming home inspired.
They earned the money for the trip by doing yard work or other chores for people in the community.
Daniel Russell, Scott Castle, and Rob and Lyndsey Zarfas attended the event with the teens.
Pedee Church invites all women reading this to come to its monthly UFO (UnFinished Objects) day Saturday from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
The church basement is the perfect place to set up sewing machines or lay out projects on large tables and get those projects started or finished.
I will be teaching how to make tote bags out of plastic 50-pound feed sacks during the day. I have lots of sacks or bring your own, along with a yard of webbing for handles, plus your machine and sewing supplies. If you'd rather just watch and take home a handout with the instructions, that is fine, too.
Bob and Lynda Schnekenburger finally moved into their beautiful new home on Pedee Creek Road, almost a year after their old one burned down on April 15, 2012.
They are so happy to be out of the RV they were staying in while it was being built, although Lynda says this big home is taking some time to get used to.
