This will be the Finale of Journey of Man, there is approximately 25-30 minutes remaining on the CD.  We thank Renee for sharing this most important CD "JOURNEY OF MAN "f or it does a 'terrific' job of explaining DNA.  We will enter the migration of man into North America via the Bering Straits.

In spite of weather not fit for man nor beast in March, we did manage to get in both evenings.  Don't know about you folks, but I'm ready to retire the snow blower and sit back and Welcome Spring!

 This is something on Claire's desk - please be sure, when you call her, that your name and phone number appears for identification.  Her caller ID has been full of unavailable , and no numbers.  She does not answer any of these type phone calls.  And especially in the evening.  Calls arriving after 8 p.m. will not be answered.  This is her personal phone, and she gladly helps anyone as long as they can be identified.  This also includes cell phone numbers.  The past several months have been full of telemarketing and unknown callers.  Thanks to everyone for honoring her wishes!!!

DID YOU KNOW?  That German immigrants get the credit for bringing the symbol of the Easter rabbit to America?

 And:  In Germany and Switzerland, the Easter bunny appeared as an Easter symbol in the early 1700s.

The dwelling house belonging to John Realph of Logan Creek, was burned down on the 14th of March, leaving the family entirely destitute of means to replace the building.  On Monday last Mrs Realph was in the city soliciting aid to rebuild.  This as far as we were able to ascertain is a meritorious case and one which calls for the sympathy of the entire community.  The sufferers are residents of our own county and it is no more than right that we should come forward with liberality and contribute towards a fund to assist these poor victims of the fiery element to rebuild their house.

                The following named persons will compose the first nine of the Star Base Ball Club of this city for the coming summer, as elected by the captain, Will Smails:  H Benton, Catcher; O Means, Pitcher;  W Smails, 1st Base;  T Quirck, 2nd Base;  R Nye, 3rd Base; W Brunner, Short Stop;  C Herre, Left Field; E Mitchell, Centre Field; W Shed, Right Field.

The above are all excellent players and with practice will make a popular nine.


I went to the 1882 newspaper for information on Easter.  There were no advertisements for Easter and the only note in the newspaper was in the Fremont Tribune as follows:

Easter services will be held in the Methodist Episcopal church next Sunday morning at 10:30.  Also preaching in the evening at 7:30 by the pastor.

      Easter services at the Episcopal church were very interesting.  The church was beautifully adorned with flowers and plants.
