STAR-GAZETTE July 27, 2006 Adopt a Pet!

Zeus is a 9-week-old mixed breed male basset hound. He is a cut tri-colored puppy and is a huge responsibility, so he should be adopted by someone for a lifetime. He is very sweet, but does not know anything yet, so be prepared to potty train him and bring him to obedience class. Zeus is scheduled to be neutered and can be adopted for $300. About this feature: Pets listed in the Pet of the Week are available at Animal Ark, a no-kill shelter located at 2600 Industrial Court, off Spiral Boulevard in Hastings Busines and Industrial Park. Readers interested in the pet featured or any of the 100 or more dogs and cats available should contact the shelter… the adoption fee includes the cost of spaying or neutering the animal.

Marston Local Bloodmobile Drive Exceeds Quota, 335 Units Donated (photo by Nguyen Throung) While these children occupied their time with toys and a cookie snack time, their parents were busy donating blood in the room on the other side of the wall. General chairperson Mickey O’Connor reports that a total of 335 units of blood were collected, 10 more units than the quota. The two-day donor count was 369, with 34 deferrals. “We thought we did pretty good,” commented the chairwoman, “there were 45 first-time donors, too, which is great.” Waiting for their parents (above left to right) were Jennifer Eckes, Teen Volunteer Julie Goranson, Chad Eckes, Michelle Waterly, Maureen O’Connor, and Mike O’Connor (more pictures in the newspaper archive at the City Hall Pioneer Room).

Hastings in the Civil War 157 Years Ago HASTINGS CONSERVER August 23, 1864 LIBERAL.—The appeal from the sanitary commission at Nashville, Tenn., published in last week’s paper, calling for rags to be used in dressing wounds, was promptly responded to by the benevolent ladies of Hastings, and a large box was filled and sent off on Thursday last. It is contemplated to send others from time to time. Contributions may be left with Mrs. Lancaster, on Ramsey Street.

The Indian Scare.

Since our last two more men have been found murdered by the Indians, making four or five in all. Col. Pfeander, commander of the post at Fort Ridgley, writes to Gen. Sibley that his scouts had discovered 50 Sioux (Dakota) of White Lodge and Sleepy-Eyes’ bands, between the Big Sioux and Hole-in the-Mountain. Force enough has been dispatched after them to overtake and wipe them out… (Note: Following the U.S.-Dakota War of 1862, the government at Washington D.C. voided treaties with the Dakota, and made it illegal for them to live in Minnesota. This could represent the near and immediate aftermath, of that decision).

OUR QUOTAS: Recruiting has been quite brisk for a week or two, and many of the towns of the country are clear of the draft (for Union troops). Hastings is yet behind a number of men, but if the citizens readily respond to the subscription paper, they can easily be obtained. Come on with your money, and we will have no draft. The time is short, and prompt action is essential.

A Correction.

We notice that most if not all of the state papers print the name of Judge McMillan with an e instead of an a. This is a material error, and should be rectified before any tickets are sent out. Will our exchanges please make a note of it.
