games are played indoors on the tennis courts. Parents have a choice
of Monday and Wednesday or Tuesday and Thursday for game days. This league
is about learning the fundamentals, with every game ending in a tie. Anyone is
welcome to attend the games.
Hinman will teach ceramics to young people entering third through
fifth grades and those entering sixth through eighth grades.
Classes running Monday through Friday will start the week of June 4.
Projects are age-related, and Scotty keeps the classes fun and
entertaining with a variety of themes.
Swanson returns this summer as our tennis instructor. John is

Huneke is more than a secretary
4, 2001] Our
local police department works hard to keep our community safe and
our town peaceful. In order to accomplish their task, they need hard
workers supporting them. Faye Huneke is one such supporter.
over 26 years, Huneke has been the full-time departmental secretary
for Lincoln Police Department. She has served under five police
chiefs—six if Mayor Davis appoints a new chief. She commented that
each of the chiefs has been great and she enjoyed working for them.
[Due to an
increase in phone activity, the dispatch now shares the phones lines
with Huneke. She operates three non-emergency lines so that the
dispatch can focus on emergency calls.]
day Faye Huneke processes a lot of information for the police
department, beyond typical secretarial duties. She collects all
arrest and accident reports from officers and sends them to the
courthouse or to whoever else needs a copy of the report. She also
collects traffic tickets and sends them to the circuit clerk’s
office in the courthouse.
addition to this paperwork, Huneke is responsible for evidence
involved in pending court cases. She logs in and shelves all
evidence, checks out evidence to authorized individuals, and sends
evidence to labs for analysis. When a court case is completely
closed, the court instructs her to refile, return or dispose of the
has acquired an additional role since she was first hired—answering
phones. Originally, all calls rang to the dispatch, but due to the
increase in phone activity the dispatch now shares the phones with
Huneke. She operates three non-emergency lines so that the dispatch
can focus on emergency calls—a responsibility she is all too happy
to leave to the dispatch.
how did Faye Huneke become a police department secretary? She
started with business classes in high school. Even though she has
not used it in awhile, she still remembers shorthand from a high
school course. After high school, she enrolled in business school in
Peoria. Cutler-Hammer of Lincoln called the school for a graduate,
and that brought Faye to Lincoln.
brought Faye not only to Lincoln but also to Bob Huneke, one of
their employees. She worked for the electric control manufacturer
for a few years, as a secretary, until she and Bob had their first
daughter. Faye Huneke stayed home until all three of their daughters
were in school.
that time, she heard of a secretarial opening with the police
department. The former secretary had passed the exams to become
Lincoln’s first female police officer—something to which Faye
said she has never aspired. She applied and was hired. At that time
LPD was located in City Hall. She worked in that building for 3½
years, until 1978, when the department moved to its current location
in the Safety Complex.
enjoys her job because she likes to help the public, whether it is
on the phone or in the lobby. Several times she mentions how much
she has liked serving with her co-workers. Faye does not have a
favorite part of her job; rather, she says, "I like most all
aspects of my job."
[to top of second column in
Huneke has had a number of memorable experiences during her years as
a police secretary. Perhaps the most rewarding memories for this
grandmother of five are reuniting young children with their parents.
Occasionally, officers will find a toddler wandering around and
bring the child back to the station until they can locate the
parents. Faye usually helps the officers watch the child. She even

of the more amusing information-related calls Huneke remembers was
during the Logan County Fair. A woman called to ask what time the
rides opened at the fair. Luckily, Faye just happened to know the
information. She wishes she had kept a diary of all the amusing
calls she has received, which are usually unrelated to the police
related an intimidating situation that happened when she started to
work for LPD. As keeper of case evidence, she is occasionally called
upon to testify in a court case concerning the handling of the
evidence. She was especially nervous the first time because she
wanted to be careful to do a good job in court. Each case she has
testified for in court has relaxed her a little more so that she no
longer views it as intimidating.

years, Faye Huneke has been the full-time departmental secretary for
Lincoln Police Department.]
very memorable experience for Huneke, and all the members of LPD,
was seeing and counting close to a million dollars. Officer Greg
Saylor stopped to inspect a suspicious moving van and asked Officer
Rawlins and his K-9 unit, Sampson, to assist. Sampson sniffed out a
cardboard box full of cash. The officers confiscated the suspected
drug money, and the next morning Huneke watched the officers count
out over $900,000.

around Illinois and some from Minnesota, gathers for each holiday.
The Hunekes, their children and grandchildren celebrate each
birthday together. This weekend, the family is gathering for a
reunion just southwest of Effingham.
Faye is not at work or preparing for a family get-together, she
enjoys gardening or creating scrapbooks. Each year she tries to add
a few perennials to her garden at home. At work, Huneke’s office
is decorated with a lot of greenery.
to retirement, she really has not thought about it. Huneke said that
perhaps in the next year or two she might begin planning her
retirement, but right now, "I guess I like the job so much,
retirement isn’t a priority."
the next time you call or visit LPD you can say hi to Faye—she
plans to be there awhile.

Stringer tells story of
Mark Holland’s buzzing of Lincoln
year ago I received a copy of Paul Gleason’s "A Pictorial
History," and I found the pictures of Mark Holland’s
buzzing of Lincoln. Regrettably, the author did not make
attribution to the photographer for these or any other
photographs, and perhaps this was not possible, as so many dated
back so far. In any case, I thought your readers might enjoy a
story behind these pictures.
father, Charles M. Stringer, had a photography studio on the
second floor of the Marcucci building in the ’30s and ’40s.
During Mark’s later high school years he worked for my father
and at the same time developed an interest in flying. After our
entry into World War II, Mark entered the Army Air Corps and
flight school. At some point Mark told dad that if the opportunity
ever came that he could "buzz" Lincoln, he would
telegram dad the night before. Dad agreed he’d have his Speed
Grafix loaded and snap the pictures.
you can guess, Lincoln was not the only town being buzzed. There
was a general order prohibiting this, but there was little the
military could really do. Pilots were needed overseas, and buzzing
your hometown would not ground a qualified pilot.

column in this article]
night the telegram came, something about seeing Lincoln soon. Dad
knew it meant Mark would buzz the town the next day. My dad told me
to keep all of this to myself, and I was certain I was in on a big
military secret. At the time, I was in the fourth grade at Monroe
Elementary School. My teacher was Miss Hazel Holland, and our
classroom was on the second floor. Miss Holland was a cousin of Mark’s.
to say, when Mark made his first run the class was out of hand. We
ran to the windows for a grand view of the action. After Mark
finished his runs and the class had quieted down, Miss Holland asked
if anyone knew who was flying that airplane. While I had to fake it,
we all had blank faces. I’m not sure if she suspected it was Mark,
but nothing more was said.

returned. During the war each kid had his personal hometown heroes,

Henson, now a college teacher in Missouri, remembers Miss Jones,
Jefferson School principal
graduated from LCHS in 1960, attended Lincoln College for a year
and then transferred to Illinois State (then Illinois State Normal
University). I taught at Pekin Community High School for 30
years before taking early retirement in 1994. Since then I
have taught technical communication at Southwest Missouri State
University in Springfield, Mo. For more information about my
career and teaching activities, please visit http://www.smsu.edu/english/dlhpages/dlh.html.
move to Missouri has increased my appreciation of the diversity of
our society. I always wondered what people meant by having
to deal with "culture shock" in moving to a different
section of the country. Here in the Ozarks, there seems to
be a blend of Midwestern, Southern and Western cultural
influences. Let me cite an example of the Western influence.
Missouri is nicknamed the "Show Me" state, and that
often seems to translate as an attitude of "so
what?" or "prove it." The good thing is
that here rugged individualism is alive and well.
a teacher for nearly 37 years, I have been especially interested
in communities composed of students, teachers and
parents. Thus, many of my most vivid Lincoln memories have to
do with school experiences. For example, I attended Jefferson
School from 1949 through 1954 and remember being taught in
fourth, fifth and sixth grades by the principal, Miss
Bernadine Jones. She kept us together as a
class because she had taught most of our parents, aunts and
uncles and so took a special interest in us.

column in this article]
were the times in which many students regarded teachers with
awe. At the beginning of fourth grade, I was so aware of Miss
Jones' reputation for strictness that on the first day of school I
attempted to avoid her class by enrolling myself in the other
fourth-grade teacher's class. About an hour or so went
by, and I began to relax, thinking I had escaped.
Suddenly, Miss Jones walked briskly into the room. She
sternly asked if I were there and then escorted me to

infamous Valentine's Day '79 in Tehran
By George McKinney
Day brings back memories for all of us — the sweethearts we gave
flowers to or chocolate candy or kind words to our mothers.
Day for me awakes the memories of being taken hostage in Tehran
that very day. We at the American Embassy in Tehran nicknamed it
the "Valentine's Day Massacre."
about 10 a.m., Feb. 14, 1979, three vehicles pulled up at
strategic locations around the embassy compound and opened fire
with machine guns. Iranian fanatics under the Ayatollah Khomeni
were attacking our embassy with the intent to close it and do
serious bodily harm to the occupants, American and Iranian
employees. Our Marine detachment was able to return fire and hold
them off for about three hours, but were outnumbered and
was caught under heavy gunfire while setting up a
"secure" telephone system in the embassy administrator's
office on the first floor of the embassy. Through the grace of
God, I was able to get upstairs to my own office, located in our
communications vault, which I was in charge of. My staff were
already in the process of destroying sensitive equipment and
classified documents under the direction of my deputy
communications officer. During this same time frame, as many
employees as possible were making it to the vault, which was also
the embassy's "safe haven" location.
firefights were taking place throughout the embassy at this time,
as the Iranians had successfully gotten onto our compound. Some of
our Marines were wounded, some were captured and taken away, and
some people suffered the ultimate — death…
our ambassador was doing what he could to assure the safety for as
many as possible, there was no doubt we were going to have to
surrender the embassy.
yelled to me, "How much more time do you need?" (to
destroy necessary equipment and documents).
told him, "Thirty more minutes," but because of the
atrocities taking place and to save as many lives as possible, we
didn't get that 30 minutes.
[to top of second
column in this section]
that time, I was on one of our HF radio systems informing our
embassy in Kuwait that we were under attack, surrendering the
embassy and for them to inform the Department of State in
Washington, D.C. The ambassador swung open the vault door and the
Iranians busted in, saw me on the radio and bashed me in the head
with an AK-47. As I got hit, I spun the dial on the radio so they
would not know our radio frequency.
I regained consciousness, armed Iranians were everywhere and were in
the process of removing us from the vault. As they removed us, they
body-searched us and forcefully took us to a large area to
physically control us. They had us get on our knees with our hands
behind our heads. We were held there for some time and physically
abused at their whim.
were later removed to the outside of the embassy and placed in front
of a machine gun that had been set up. Many things took place at
this time that I won't go into, but the international press
(numerous) showed up, and that most likely saved our lives. I had
been injured earlier, besides being hit in the head and again beaten
when taken outside of the embassy. We were later taken to the
ambassador's residence, located on the compound.
employees were released during the next days and weeks, but I did
not leave until all of my staff were safe and accounted for and also
safely gotten out of Tehran.
was not my first encounter with terrorism, as I had been kidnapped
in Fort Lamy, Tchad, in 1968. I believe my prior experience in the
Marines, having served in unstable countries prior to being assigned
to Iran, most likely prepared me for what took place.
course, not learning from these experiences, I continued to
volunteer for the trouble spots around the world during the rest of
my career in the Foreign Service.

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. We 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.
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. We 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.

found out that Lincoln used watermelon juice to christen the city
with the name Lincoln. As a matter of fact, I am related to

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."

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
