Yvonne Clemans, daughter of Dale and Dode Faylor, brought the Faylors a supplement to the Burlington Record sharing many articles of the 75th anniversary of the 1935 flood. Dode remembers how scary it was. She was five years old and the Rathbun family lived in the house in Haigler, now owned by Rae White. The Rathbuns lost no family but the Faylors were devastate by the loss of Dale’s grandparents and an Aunt and Uncle. The Faylors lived southeast of Benkelman where the Republican and Arickaree rivers joined. Dale’s father and his brothers searched for days but of no avail. They did find four horses that belonged to Dale’s grandparents. Dode remembers three of the horses as the Faylors still had them at the time she and Dale married in September of 1948.

Dode and Dale Faylor had supper in Wray Wednesday evening, the 23rd, in the home of Sabrina and Randy Crone. The Crones were foster parents when Faylors had the Youth Ranch.

Rick Pittit of Holden, Missouri, called Dale and Dode Faylor Saturday the 26th. Rick lived with the Faylors years ago and attended school in St. Francis.

Yvonne and Royce Clemans of Burlington, CO, spent some time in the home of Yvonne’s parents, Dale and Dode Faylor Saturday afternoon, the 26th

Pastor Inez Foster enjoyed seeing the progress of the schoolhouse, South 67 on Thursday afternoon. Stan Carlock was glad to show her how much has been done.

Pastor Inez Foster of Spencer, NE, came to Laura Pearl Wall’s home on Tuesday of last week. She and Laura Pearl attended a game in Wray that evening to watch Logan Klein play base ball. MerryLu Simmons visited in the Wall home on Wednesday. Pastor Inez and Laura Pearl were luncheon guests of the Simmons on Thursday. They went to Beecher Island to see the damage of the Tornado at the auditorium. Pastor Foster returned to Spencer on Friday

Randy, Laurie Perilla and children, Laura, Madison and Spencer and a friend, Haley Walker of Westminster were week-end guests of Bob and MerryLu Simmons. Laura Pearl Wall joined the group on Sunday. After lunch they went to the Arikaree River for a fun time of wading in the river and the children enjoyed chasing minnows, toads and frogs.

Helen Brown visited Sophia Zuege on Sunday. Lois Zuege was a visitor Friday Evening.

Garry Fisher of Wray came to Floy Fisher’s home to take her to the Wray hospital for a scope on Friday morning. He brought her home a few hours and a little “dopier” later. Garry’s wife, Sharon had been called to Minnesota to be with her mother who had sprained and cracked an ankle and was in the hospital. Her mother needed to be closely monitored after the injury because of other health issues.

Floy Fisher enjoyed a short visit with Laura Pearl Wall in Floy’s home Monday morning.

The Haigler community is saddened with the recent loss of Stanley Zuege and Clyde Smith. Stan was well known as a long time rural mail carrier. Clyde was a long time resident, first of the Haigler area and later of the St Francis area. He passed away on Saturday, June 26, at the Kearney Good Samaritan Hospital.

The cooperation of the individuals in the community in reporting new items is greatly appreciated. We would like to hear from those in the surrounding rural area also. Please call 297-3605, email or drop by 338 Washington Avenue. Also a mailbox is provided at the driveway for news items to be dropped off. We also like to hear from former Haigler residents who have moved away from the area but their hearts are still here.
