Local residents reflect on the JFK assasination By Robert Wolfington tributeeditor@gmaiLcom There are moments in history where people will always re- member where they were when it happened. This Friday, Nov. 22 will mark the 50th anniversary of Presi- dent John E Kennedy being shot. President Kennedy was trav- eling in Dallas, Texas when gun shots rang out, taking his life. For many residents in the area, the event is all too fresh in their minds. Dennis and ]olean Faaborg were recently married when the news broke. Dennis Faaborg was working out in northern California in No- vember 1963. "I was working on shingling a roof," said Dennis Faaborg. "It was hard to concentrate when the news came out." ]olean Faaborg was working at the Tyler Clinic in 1963. When she went home for lunch she heard the news. "When I went back to work it was a whole different day," said ]olean Faaborg. Leila Teeselink remembers washing clothes when the news broke. Darrel Denney was on the road when the news broke. He didn't find out until he stopped at a grain elevator and saw everyone standing around the radio. "When I went in I saw every- one crowded around the radio," said Denny. "I didn't know why until they told me. I joined them right away." Robert Bullerman was work- ing on building a snow fence in the country when the news broke. It wasn't until later that afternoon that the news reached him. "We didn't have a radio with us at the time," said Bullerman. "It wasn't until I came in for dinner that I heard anything about it." ]ack ]ohnson said he was com- ing in for coffee when he heard the news. "I heard it on the television," ]ohnson said. "We were all in shock." School Board hears audit results The RTR School District re- ceived a clean audit report dur- ing its regular meeting on Mon- day, Nov. 18.
