Lawrence Wilcox, a fallen soldier of the Korean War

Lawrence Wilcox, a fallen soldier of the Korean War

Lawrence Wilcox was a young man who died 70 years ago, 6,000 miles from home. It was in the earliest days of the Korean War, called often now the “Forgotten War."

Lawrence A. Wilcox (1932 - 1950) was the youngest of the dozen children of Addie and Ernest Wilcox. The ones older than him were Herald, Richard, Lyle, Robert, Ruth, Doris, Jean, Dorothy, Lourain, Lucille and David. His mother, Addie, graduated from Table Rock in 1911. Some of her children went to Table rock, too. Lawrence and his brother Lyle appear in a picture of the basketball team taken in the Fall of 1947. Lyle graduated at the end of that school year, the last of four siblings to graduate from Table Rock. The family then moved to a farm north of Steinauer, near the Wenzl families' farms.

Primary recap

Covid-19 didn’t dent the voting much for the Primary. More than 50 percent of Pawnee County registered voters voted. (For all official results see inside the paper.)

Pawnee County has 1,822 registered voters with 980 that voted in the Primary. The voter turnout percentage was 53.79%.

The state did ask for early voting emphasis this year and that was the only real difference in the way the votes were cast this year. Polling places still had people come in to vote under the guidelines.

There were three local races on the ballot and there were surprises.

Pawnee County Artist sketches touch the hearts of many

Pawnee County Artist sketches touch the hearts of many

There is a huge amount of talent in Pawnee County. Some have moved away. Some have stayed and some have moved to Pawnee County. We are fortunate and these talented people deserve some recognition.

I have never met a Hinrichsen without talent!

Sonja Hinrichsen Rhodes was raised in DuBois Nebraska in the big house her mom still lives in. The family moved to DuBois from Bennet, Nebraska when she was about one month old (if she remembers correctly).

Sonja loves to draw. She has created art work “since the beginning of time.” “Brother Rick was always stirring up the imaginations of us little kids artistic ideas…from the boards of the chicken coop to the endless string of Chief tablet sketches…no pen left idle was safe.”
