If you want to experience the true meaning of getting into the Halloween spirit then this outfit should 'suit' you just fine! Wednesday, Karen Hargis stopped by the Town and County Bank in Lincoln and got two big surprises. First, check out the nifty Halloween suit worn by branch manager Brian Ash!

Lincoln Community High School Principal Todd Poelker accepts a check for $2,500 from Gordmans representatives on Thursday morning at the Gordmans grand opening in Lincoln.

The money, Poelker said, would be used in the Freshman Academy at the High School. The Freshman Academy is an alternative education program aimed at keeping students enrolled in school by working with them to overcome the issues that could prevent them from acquiring their high school educations.

Today is the day, Lincoln! Stop in and say goodbye to Sharon Tibbs. Tibbs is retiring today from the United States Postal Service after 48 years. Tibbs began her career on November 28, 1970 when the price of a stamp was six cents. In retirement Tibbs plans on moving from her home in New Holland to be closer to family near Chicago. She also plans on spending the winter months in California with her brother and his family.

While reflecting on her time at the Lincoln Post Office, Tibbs said, "I can't think of any one special memory but I can say that I take many memories from the people I have worked with and the people of a community I have worked in. I guess I can truly say thanks for the memories."

On Saturday morning veterans from around the area were treated to an appreciation breakfast at the Eminence Church in rural Atlanta. The annual event organized by church member Marsha Fernandes is growing bigger each year. This year there were more than 50 veterans in attendance. Each one was served a hearty breakfast and enjoyed special music presentations by students from Lincoln Christian University. In addition to enjoying a good meal, it was time for veterans to spend time together remembering as well as talking about their time of service.

On Sunday evening Lincolnís own version of the Andrews Sisters - Sheralyn Bolton, Brittney McLaughlin, and Lesleigh Bennet were part of the live entertainment at the St. Johns Church Veteran's Appreciation Dinner at the American Legion Post 263. The trio sang 'Chattanooga Choo Choo" and "Boogie Woogie Bugle Boy." Both songs were very well done, and helped set the happy festive tone for the evening.

After a great deal of work, the World War I Doughboy statue now stands guard over a lovely remembrance garden. A ribbon cutting was held to celebrate the day and then the activities moved to the Elkhart Library.
