Congratulations to Jeff Winding and Julie Walker who were married April 11 at Mermet Lake, Ill. They honeymooned at a Crittenden County cabin.

The Dycusburg Grocery had record numbers on Friday for singing, with lots of new talent. It's once again a growing, hopping little place, reports owner Star Mahns.

Our sympathies are extended to Josh Mahns on the death of his grandmother, Irene P. Dybalski-Mahns who died at age 85 on April 8 in Valparaiso, IN. She was born Dec. 28, 1923 in Gary, IN, to Clement and Mary Dybalski. She was married on June 28, 1946 in New Chicago to Walter H. Mahns, who survives of Valparaiso, IN.

The Dycusburg Community Group will host a yard sale this weekend, weather permitting. A donation box will be on site at the sale for the Homes for Our Troops effort that will benefit Chase Matthews and his wife, Jennifer. Homes for Our Troops is a Boston-area based organization that helps build specially adapted homes for severely injured veterans returning from Iraq and Afghanistan. Chase learned he was accepted into the program in February. To learn how to become more involved, visit and look for the link for "Homes for Our Troops."
