LCT auditions for ‘Dearly Departed’

It would be hard to imagine a goofier or funnier set of individuals than the members of a Southern family named the Turpins who are the central characters in Lincoln Community Theatre’s July 12-20 production of  "Dearly Departed." Despite the family’s earnest efforts to pull themselves together for their father’s funeral, other problems keep overshadowing the solemn occasion. Amidst the chaos, the Turpins turn for comfort to their friends and neighbors, an eccentric community of misfits who just manage to pull together and help each other through their hours of need, and finally, the funeral.

The comedy is directed by D. Ann Jones of Clinton.

Auditions will be on Friday, May 10, from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. and on Saturday, May 11, from 10 to noon at St. John Church of Christ, 204 Seventh St. in Lincoln. People wishing to audition should arrive at the beginning and plan to stay for the full two hours.

The director is looking for actors ranging in age from 20 on up. The play calls for a cast of four to six men, six to eight women, a trio of singers and one teenage girl. There are many parts for older "mature" actors.

A copy of the script from this play is available at the main desk of the Lincoln Public Library. It may not be checked out.

Season tickets for the summer performances, which also include the June production of "Hello, Dolly!" and the August production of "The King and I," are still available. Send check or money order ($20 for adult ticket; $12 for children through eighth grade) to LCT, Box 374, Lincoln 62656. For information on auditions or season membership, call (217) 732-4763 or (217) 732-2640.

Master Gardeners walk

The Master Gardeners of Logan County are undertaking their first major event of the season. Saturday, June 8, garden enthusiasts will be given the opportunity to tour eight of Lincoln’s most attractive gardens.

On the tour are the perennial garden on the south side of the Extension office at the Logan County Fairgrounds, the "Children’s Gardens" just north of Jefferson School on Sixth Street, Mary and Jerry Moore’s garden at 121 Carter Lane, Pete and Dixie Ross’ garden at 1430 Delavan St., Dr. Don and Jan Sielaff’s garden at 135 Tenth St., Bob and Jody Graue’s garden at 4 Meadow Lane, Sarah Jacobs’ garden at 326 Park Place, and Bob and Lynn Neal’s Scully Estate gardens.

The tour will be from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., rain or shine.

Tickets are $8 each and are on sale at State Bank, Logan  County Bank, CEFCU, Union Planters Bank and the Extension office. Make plans now to attend, and ask your neighbor to tour with you.

A new Master Gardener class will begin in September at the Logan County Extension office. All classes are taught by specialists and professors of the University of Illinois Department of Agriculture.

Rotary plants tree at Lincoln College,
honoring Herb Alexander

Lincoln Rotary honored past member Herb Alexander by planting a hard red maple tree on the campus of Lincoln College on Friday, April 26, at 4 p.m. The tree is on the west side of the McKinstry Library.

Marty Ahrends, president of Rotary, said the gesture pays tribute to all the work that Mr. Alexander did for Rotary. "Herb epitomized the Rotary motto of ‘Service Above Self,’ both in his vocation as a retail grocer and as a man of the community," she said. "He spent countless hours planting and watering trees in Lincoln’s parks on behalf of Rotary. This tree will serve as a living tribute to Herb and all he has given to Rotary and the people of Lincoln."

Lincoln College President Jack Nutt said the gift is a wonderful idea. "Herb chaired the building and grounds committee for Lincoln College," he explained, "and I think everyone would agree that this gesture is a living memorial to what Herb was all about."

Herb Alexander became a Rotarian in April 1961. He served as club president in the 1980s and was a Paul Harris Fellow. He also served as a trustee of Lincoln College from 1978 until his death in February.

Landfill open additional hours

The city landfill at Broadwell Drive and Lincoln Parkway will be open additional hours starting Tuesday, April 16, through the end of May so Lincoln residents can dispose of yard waste, street superintendent Don Osborne announced recently. Hours will be 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesdays through Sundays. The landfill will be closed Mondays.

Do you have air pollutants in your home?

In recent years studies have shown that the air people breathe inside their homes can be more polluted than the air outside of the home. Do you notice odors lingering in the air of your home? Do you notice condensation on the inside of the windows in your home during the winter? If you do, you may have an indoor air problem.

The University of Illinois Extension of Logan County will be sponsoring a free workshop on "Indoor Air Quality." The workshop will be from 10 a.m. to noon Wednesday, May 15, at the Extension office, 980 N. Postville Drive in Lincoln.

John Fulton, unit leader in Logan County, and Jay Solomon, Extension educator, will help workshop participants learn about the six major indoor air pollutants, how to know if these pollutants are in your air, how to keep them from entering your home, and how to remove the pollutants.

Registration is required and may be done by simply calling the Extension office at 732-8289.

When family and friends matter most

Fund-raiser Sunday

[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 layoffs.

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.


[to 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.
