I just want to say that I think it’s
great what Stacey Martin asked of Lincoln, and of Karen Lauer for
letter she wrote in the Lincoln letter to the editor [Oct.
26]. It really takes a lot these days to stand up and say what you
feel to the public and to ask of the public to join in. And in
Lincoln you will find many strong, good people who will and others
that will come when asked. Just ask us and we will come.

I want to take a moment and thank you
for your support of the Scully Park prayer. Any effort to make a
positive change should be praised, not criticized. Thank you for
focusing on the positive.
Calling the town to prayer took much
courage on Stacey Martin’s part. Attending took courage as well. I
was angered when I saw another paper print a response that
criticized the efforts of some 300 Lincolnites. If it were simple
criticism it would be one thing, but what I read was a clear
public hand-slapping. I wish to speak to this so-called offense.
[In the editorial] It was pointed
out that the prayer was to be nondenominational, but failed when
Stacey mentioned the name Jesus. Non-denominational means all are
[Writer’s response] Stacey invited
ANYONE. It was pointed out that if any Jews or Muslims were
present that they would have been offended. This is a bold
assumption. They too know that faith can make a difference. All
children are at risk. The problem is bigger than differences of
faith. The people who prayed did so because they believe and
understand these things. Stacey merely spoke to the faith she
holds; she did not deny anyone their own.
[to top of second column in
It was also said that Stacey
failed because she did not devise a plan of continued
action. This is not what she invited people to do. Stacey
invited people to pray. The response she got speaks for
itself, as does the letter of criticism. People can appear
enlightened when they wave the politically correct flag.
People can also be exposed.
I encourage everyone who will
to challenge the "PC" cancer that is infecting our country.
Use your faith. Have courage. The very man that Lincoln is
named after said it best: "You can please some of the people
some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but
you can’t please all of the people all of time." Heed his
words. March on, Lincoln!
Lincoln will always be "home"

folks of Logan County,
Here comes another great story about
American immigration: Johann Bauer (born April 2, 1876), a
15-year-old boy from Oberlaitsch, Oberfranken, (near Bayreuth)
from a family of 17 (!) emigrated to the States in 1890 or 1891,
seeing no chance for himself to prosper in the Old World. He
settled in Lincoln, Ill., Logan County, as a farmer and grew a
family of 10, as far as we know. Johann must have done well for
himself, as he was able to revisit his German relatives in 1946,
directly after the war.
We, his German relatives (Johann was
my great-grandmother’s brother), would very much like to contact
the American branch of our family. Who can help us to find Johann
Bauer’s (or Bower’s or Bour’s or any similar form of the name)
family in the USA?
