Lincoln Rotary Club news
Two Logan County teens recognized
for exceptional vocational efforts
Two young men from
Logan County were honored by the Lincoln Rotary Club recently for
the skills and attitudes they’ve demonstrated, indicative of success
in the "real world."
Hans Bishop and
Daniel Coers were honored as recipients of the Ready for the Real
World Award. This is the fourth year for the award created by
members of the Lincoln Rotary Club to honor those youth who have
started their own businesses or demonstrated maturity above and
beyond the expectations for a teen employee.
Olympia graduate Hans
Bishop was recognized by the Lincoln Rotary for his entrepreneurial
skills. As part of his 4-H woodworking project, Hans has built and
sold birdhouses. He even has a website to market his goods and has
successfully dealt with "real world" business challenges like
dealing with the changes presented by the corporate merger of his
website host. Hans was nominated by Patty Huffer of the University
of Illinois Extension office.
Hans will begin a job
at State Farm Insurance as he also pursues studies at Heartland
graduate Daniel Coers was also recognized as an exceptional young
employee through the Lincoln Rotary Ready for the Real World
program. He was nominated by Jim Klokkenga of Emden. Coers has been
employed by Klokkenga’s swine and crop enterprise for more than two
years. Klokkenga noted that Daniel takes extra-special care of all
equipment, both old and new. And, that level of care and
consideration is hard to find in any farm employee.
Coers plans to
continue working for Klokkenga Enterprises as he begins studies at
Illinois Central College this fall.
Each of the two young
men was presented with a plaque and check for $250 from the Rotary

honored at surprise party
For politicians and elected officials,
awards, honors and recognitions are an everyday occurrence. Such
people are used to accepting and giving letters, plaques and ribbons
in honor of this or that success. But it is not every day that a
normal citizen of a small town like Lincoln gets recognized for his
commitment and achievement.
Sensei Dan Dugan is a fifth degree black belt in Chito-Ryu karate. He
holds the title of Godan, or master instructor. Saturday, under the
pretense of attending a friend’s anniversary party, he was taken to
the Depot for his own surprise anniversary celebration.
Dugan has been involved in Chito-Ryu for 30 years this month. His
students awarded him with a plaque commemorating his 30 years and a
photo of Dr. Chitose, the inventor of Chito-Ryu.
Dugan has been an influence on many people in the community. His
students have received direct influence, both over their physical
health and their maturity and devotion. Dugan’s son Todd, who
teaches social studies at Lincoln Junior High, was also one of his
dad’s students. He says that he was highly influenced by his father.
He believes it was his father’s impact that made him decide to
Dan Dugan has been an
inspiration to his students, his children and his community.
Congratulations, Sensei. May you have 30 more years in your art.

When family and friends matter most
[MAY 3, 2002]
Family and friends of Ryan J. Donley and Daphne (Winegardner)
Donley are getting together for a second time this spring in honor
of the couple that was wed seven weeks ago at Holy Family Catholic
Church. Unlike the celebration of new lives beginning together, this
gathering carries a somber purpose. It is to raise funds to help pay
off medical bills incurred by Ryan during their brief marriage. Ryan
passed away from acute leukemia less than four weeks after they were
wed. He had no insurance.
Six months after they
met Ryan and Daphne were engaged to be married. They waited and
worked for three years getting their lives in near-perfect order
before they married. Ryan, a 2001 graduate of Embry Riddle
Aeronautical University, wanted to fly for the military. He
completed Officer Training School in Knoxville, Tenn., on Feb. 22,
2002. He was a second lieutenant for Continental Express and a
member of the 183rd Fighter Wing of the Illinois Air National Guard
awaiting F-16 pilot training. He was supposed to report for UPT
(pilot training) on April 2.
Daphne, like Ryan,
had been working at her career dream too. She has just graduated
from the same college, Embry Riddle Aeronautical University, this
past Saturday. Her goal is to fly for commercial airlines. She’s
looking for a job in a field that has just sustained massive
Daphne is the
granddaughter of Leroy and Judy McCray and the late Nancy
Winegardner. When Daphne was young, she and her parents, Tom and
Barb Winegardner, moved south and currently reside in Florida.
Besides her grandparents, she has lots of other aunts, uncles and
other relatives still living here. With lots of family here, Lincoln
remains their hometown, and the Donleys chose Lincoln for their
March 16 wedding.
top of second column in this article]
The day after they
returned from their honeymoon, Monday, March 25, Ryan went into the
hospital. He had been tired and looked a little pale at the wedding,
but who wouldn’t be, getting married in another state just following
officer training. However, as it turned out he was more than just a
little run-down. He was diagnosed that day with acute leukemia. They
immediately began chemotherapy. Ryan just got sicker. He never left
the hospital. Two and a half weeks later, on Thursday, April 11,
23-year-old Ryan passed away.
A new college
graduate, at age 22, Daphne is an unexpected widow with no job and
huge medical bills.
Contributions to help
ease that debt are being accepted. All contributions will be used
only toward the medical bills and nothing else. If you wish to
contribute, you can make checks payable to Tom Winegardner or Daphne
Winegardner and send them to Tom and Barb Winegardner, 132 Mystic
Lane, Jupiter, FL 33458.
You can also attend the benefit
mostaccioli dinner on Sunday, May 5, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m., at the
K of C Hall in Lincoln. Donations of $5 for adults and $3 for
children 12 and under will be accepted at the door. There will be
raffles and a 50-50 drawing.
