Personality of the Week is by far our publication's most popular
feature. We just wanted you to know about a small change, plus
advise you about something you might not know. We have changed this
feature to being on Tuesdays rather than Mondays. This community is
so active over the weekend that it is difficult to make sure our
personality's story is ready first thing Monday. By waiting until
Tuesday, we have a chance to make sure that what we present to you
is the best we can deliver. After all, our Personality of the Week
Also, for those who want to read our
Personality of the Week features again, or to check and see if you
might have missed one of these great stories, they are all here at

hundreds of files we keep online and free to all our readers, thanks
to our great sponsors.
As part of Together for Lincoln this weekend, Lincoln
Christian Church is having a communitywide clothes swap.
They are asking anyone from the community to bring outgrown and no
longer wanted but still useful clothes to the Lincoln Christian
Church Fellowship Hall between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. on Saturday, Sept.
26. Then on Sunday, Sept. 27, anyone may come back to Lincoln
Christian Church between 10 a.m. and 3 p.m. and select items they
need from the contributions. Everyone is asked to bring what they
can and take what they need. Children and adult clothes are welcome.
Items left over at the end of the swap will be donated to area
homeless shelters or overseas missions. If anyone has questions or
would like to help, they may call Leslie Starasta at 217-732-7970.
Habitat for Humanity of Logan County will have an orientation
meeting for applicants at 1:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 11, in the
Community Room at 1028 N. College St. in Lincoln. Those who are
willing to partner with Habitat to build their home are encouraged
to attend, whether or not they have filled out an application.
Steve Allen, chairman of the local Habitat selection committee,
will share information about Habitat's homeownership program and
qualifications for acceptance into the program. Applications will be
available for those who wish to fill one out. Refreshments will be
served following the meeting.
Habitat may be contacted at 732-6412, should you have a question.
Please state your name and phone number clearly and your call will
be returned. You may also contact Steve Allen at 732-7776 or Tonita
Reifsteck, Habitat president, at 732-9796.
Kathy Horn is a proud mom. Her son
Eric is deployed to Bagram, Afghanistan. The Air Force has a
site to show what our loved ones are doing, and Kathy's son is
picture #090912-F4859J036JPG. She says she sure would rather see him
with his nail gun in his hand than any other kind of gun, but she is
proud of his service to country. Eric was also chosen Airman of the
Week, quite an honor from his peers over there.

The Lincoln Emblem Club entered the Americanism display
contest at the recent Supreme Emblem Convention in Valley Forge, Pa.
The club is proud to announce that they placed first with their
display. The display theme, "Lincoln Pride," was a club project that
followed Abraham Lincoln's time spent in Lincoln and Logan County.
It was centered on his 200th birthday and the celebrations in
Lincoln and Logan County. It was a work of enormous pride to be able
to represent Lincoln and show the "pride" we have in our namesake.
KC Electric bowlers placed second in the state of Illinois
for prep girls. Team members are Crystal Graeser, Taylor Yeazle,
Tosha Boyer, Carson Rickord and Kylee Alexander. The team total for
scratch pins was 1,449 with a handicap total of 3,526. (Click on
