I've had this picture of an article for many years. I don't know the exact date of the newspaper issue. My wife and I met while working at Dog 'N Suds so it always was special to us.

Once again I am looking for some help. I am trying to locate relatives of Harvey Phelps. The problem is Harvey Passed in 1981. I know he had a son and a daughter, Harvey Jr and Frances (unknown). Harvey Jr passed in 2006 in Sun City Arizona. He was married to Ruth Mary Cassel of Lindenwood. They had two children Harvey Phelps III and Leah Phelps Hoskins. Nothing is wrong i am simply on a mission. Any info would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
Looking for a man named Keith who I believe was from Rochelle, born around 1924, went into the service as a pilot during WWII.
Going through some of my grandmother's coke stuff and found this gem.
This was in 1972-73 when I was working at Rochelle Newsleader and 18 years old. Museum was in its infancy and had received the ball and chain from a donation. Wayne and I posed for the picture.
