  • Sherrie’s Barber Shop celebrates 30 years

    Now in her 30th year of running a small town barber shop, Sherrie Vittitow said the time has “truly flown by.”

    Vittitow grew up in Louisville but made the small community of Magnolia her home in 1983. Randy and Shirley Johnson, Vittitow’s parents, made the move from Louisville to Magnolia earlier that year.

    She became interested in being a beautician in her teens, and constantly sought chances to cut and style hair.

  • Pioneer spirit: Fun and generosity combined for unique event

    Rain did not wreck our Lincoln Days.

    A downpour cut short the festivities and events were moved around a bit. There were a few hitches – and no doubt, some disappointments – but overall, it was an excellent festival.

    Many participants embraced the “Lincoln Goes Hollywood” theme and you just had to smile when you saw Abe Lincoln walk by wearing a pair of glitter sunglasses.

  • Calling for the death of a rumor

    I know of newspapers that kept their communities informed about clean water and shelter during terrible storms and disasters.

    I know of newspapers that exposed crooks, lost a lot of advertising from the crooks’ buddies and still put out a paper every week.

    I know of a newspaper that had an ironic sense of humor that even offended a few readers and stood its ground with a “come on people, have a brain” retort.

    I know of publishers who took pay cuts during the recession rather than cut staff.
