shine. Perfect for open air ride through the country roads of
northern Logan County. A trail of tractors, mostly antique, looped

Nicole Bottrell has been diagnosed with stage four
brain cancer. Its spread to her spinal cord has prompted the need to

A neighbor, Duane Ingram, organized last Saturday's Tractor Run to
help the family out with mounting expenses.
An all day, big fundraiser is planned at the American
Legion and Logan Lanes. It will take place on Saturday, July 29th

awards, food, entry in drawing for a big screen TV with every food
ticket purchase, DJ music, raffles, auction and more with a bowling
tournament beginning at 7 p.m.
