On Thursday, August 24th, the Lincoln Fire Department honored Assistant Chief Steve Dahm as he entered into retirement at the end of his shift. Dahm was with the city department exactly 30 years, starting work on August 24th, 1987. The department honored Dahm with a lunch, the gift of his uniform patch and badge, and a new drum kettle smoker. The last gift came with a summons that Dahm should plan on often delivering lunch to hungry firefighters that will include freshly smoked meats from the new drum kettle.

On Sunday morning, residents in the Beason community awoke to something out of the ordinary. A sound outside caused them to peek out and see what was going on. What they found in a nearby open area was two hot air balloons inflating for an early morning flight.

Though airport events had concluded on Saturday night, some pilots remained in the area and took advantage of the calmer winds on Sunday morning for a float across Logan County.
