get homesick even after so many years. I lived in Lincoln for
eight years and then moved to a small town (Emden), where we lived
for the next 22 years.
lived in Clearwater for 16 years and moved to Odessa, Fla., which
is really northwestern Tampa, several years ago, as we wanted to
be in the country again. Both my husband, Wayne, and I are farm
people, and my parents lived in Lincoln until their deaths. The
city was fine for a while, but as they say, you can take us out of
the country but you can't take the country out of us.
have over an acre of land here and really like living where we can
hear the birds and see the horses and llamas daily. Yes, I did say
llamas. Our neighbor has six of them, and they are beautiful.
would be nice to hear from people that I used to know.

a person who is lucky enough to call Lincoln my hometown, I just
wanted to say what a great Web site you have.
am a resident of Lincoln not currently living there, because of my
job. I'm serving on active duty with the Army at Fort Campbell,
was born and raised in Lincoln, and have come to appreciate just
what kind of community I come from. Lincoln isn't the biggest town
I've lived in, and actually I guess it's about the smallest town
I've lived in. Both of my parents, Roger and Connie Boss, and for
that matter most of my immediate family, still live in Lincoln.
mom routinely clips out sections of the Courier and sends them to
me so I can keep up on what's going on back home. Recently they
showed your Web site to me, and Mom, I think you can retire the
scissors. It's great that I can just pull it up on the Web and see
what my friends and family are doing, no matter if I'm in Korea or
have a good thing going here. It helps all of us out here from
feeling so homesick when we can't go take a walk around the
courthouse square or down Broadway to the Depot.
again for a great Web site, and keep up the good work...

old high school, near downtown, for two years and then the new high
school at the edge of town when it opened for two more years.
have hardly been back to Lincoln since I graduated. My parents moved
to Decatur and I went off to see the world. So far, that desire to
see the world has taken me to about 55 countries. I often think of
Lincoln and wonder what has happened to my old friends in the last

be no surprise to those who remember me as an avid ham radio

there will be a class reunion this summer for the class of 1960? We
would like to attend. If anyone knows about this (date, time, place,

to Sharon Webster and Tim Harmon… good friends.
am glad that Lincoln has stayed about the same size. I live in San
Antonio, Texas, and believe me, if I could, Lincoln would be the
place for me.
I am an avid reader
of Lincoln Daily News. The reason for this is because I no
longer live there, but was born and raised there, and it always
remains in my mind. I am always looking to see something or
someone I may remember from when I was there.
I really enjoy
Diaspora, but not enough people are getting into it.
I wish there was
something I could do to raise that interest.
Come on Lincolnites,
get on that computer and let us know what and how you are doing.
recalls Lincoln Skateland
Brainard moved to Lincoln with his family when he was in sixth
grade. He graduated from LCHS in 1979 and lived here until 1986.
likes to remember the Indian summers and the skating rink, which
his parents owned from 1972 to 1979. He thinks he misses the
winter least and the summer most. "Compared to where I spend
most summers, Lincoln’s weather is mild and wonderful," he
enlisted in the U.S. Army in 1986 and has been stationed in
Georgia, Germany, Korea and Arizona. He was deployed to the Iraq
area for Desert Storm. "Each station and area has had its own
beauty," he says, "but not one of them was home."
am still on active duty in the Army. My specialty is
communications. I work as a satellite communications network
engineer and all-around communications techie. I enjoy several
veterans associations – especially the American Legion and the
3rd Armored Division veterans (Spearhead) association."
local family members are his parents, Charles and Carol Brainard;
his brother, David, who just bought a house in Lincoln; and a
sister, Laurie Armstrong. "My folks still live there at the
homestead," he says. "The rest of us have scattered
across the nation." Linda Jamison, another sister, resides in
Shirley, Ill., and his sister Susan Conver lives in the
Raleigh-Durham, N.C., area.

We just heard about
the lincolndailynews.com and are enjoying keeping up with
latest. We are currently living in Germany and now we don't feel
so far from home.

remains close to her heart
you so much for the opportunity to stay posted on the happenings
in my hometown! I am currently living in the North Georgia
mountains, but my children spend the summers in Lincoln visiting
their grandparents, and they love to look at the pictures of
places in Lincoln and stay familiar with their "summer
surroundings" After viewing the message board that one other
Lincoln site has, I think I will stick with lincolndailynews.com,
where I can see the news that I want to see....how things
are progressing, and the good that still comes from my
little hometown. Keep up the good work! Lincoln may be 700 miles
from my home, but is much closer to my heart!

traveler keeps up on Lincoln
you for lincolndailynews.com. My name is Denise and I am living
in the Port Charlotte, Fla., area. I am getting established in
real estate here in Southwest Florida after moving to this area
within the last year from the north of England.
lived in Lincoln until I was 27 in 1983, before starting a world
traveling lifestyle. Although living thousands of miles away
(i.e., Texas, California, Australia, England) over the years, I
have managed to return to see my family, friends, and just to see
Lincoln every six months on average. Now that plans have it that
visits will be less often, it is absolutely great to have lincolndailynews.com
for that Lincoln connection.
parents are down here for 'The Season." January to April.
They are enjoying the benefits of the new lincolndailynews and
the latitude of Florida, that of sun, warm, wildlife and the new
pool construction going on in my back yard with the golf course
view. Ya' all come down now! :o)
you won't miss out on any Lincoln area news either! I am so
excited about lincolndailynews that I am starting a classified
ad to help readers learn more about wintering in Florida.

Great Web page.
My brother just sent me the link to the Web site so that I can
keep up with the news from back home. I left Lincoln back in
1963 for the Air Force. I currently reside in Alabama but
Lincoln is never far from my mind. I truly enjoyed seeing the
pictures of the different places around town and what is going
on. Keep up the good work.
