Rollin J. Keltner added to Veterans List

Memorial Day is just weeks away. Be sure to check the ColumbiaMagazine.com Veteran's List and make sure your family members are properly listed.

By Jim

A name for the veterans list: Rollin J. Keltner

Documentation: according to a death notice / tribute in the May 3, 1916 News written by his mother, Rollin was the son of Uriah and Alta Keltner, and he died on April 23, 1916, age 21. "Some five weeks ago, for some unknown reason, he secretly joined the army at Springfield, Ill., and went from there to Jefferson Barracks, Mo., where he took the measles, and that terminated in acute bronchal pneumonia and resulted in death." (The death certificate verifies his age, death date, place and cause of death, and that he was an enlistee of the US Army.)

Peony provenance: Plant holds memories of pre- GR Lake times

Story in progress

By Ed Waggener

Most of us who remember the area now under Green River Lake cherish any and every thing which keeps those precious ties intact.

Larry Clark still has memories of the hard times his family endured when the family farm was was quickly wrested from them, when they were given less for the rich, river bottom land than they had to pay for poorer land elsewhere, how his father perservered but remembered the unfairness, and how happy they were when a farm as near to the homeplace as they could get became available in the early 1990s and they returned.

At the regular city Council meeting Monday, May 2, 2016 the citizens comments portion of the meeting provided most of the action, with three requests for donations being present, with two approved and the third, presented for the first time, from the Adair 911 requesting the city fund a new $15,603.40 expenditure, being taken under advisement, as is the current policy.

The requests, relative to pre-budget crisis times, were relatively modest, but two council members, Craig Dean and Dr. Ron Rogers, cautioned anew for tighter controls on such requests, though both commended the worthiness of the projects.
