Lincoln Community News

Genealogy Inquiry
I am writing from Canada, trying to track down part of my family from England who immigrated to America in the early 1900's, I believe. I have very little information to go on...very sketchy dates, names and places. However, something might "ring a bell" for someone and my search will be a little further on.
I am looking for my great aunt who's name I don't know, but she is my grandmothers older sister. My grandmother was born Bertha Webster in Heaton Moor, Lancashire England around 188? She married Charles Jordan and they had four of whom is my father John Jordan. But it's my grandmother's sister I'm looking for and this is what I know about her: She was also born in Heaton Moor in the late 1870's and married and immigrated with her husband to Lincoln Nebraska in the early 1900's. There is a possibility that her married name was Granger...but I can't confirm this. Apparently they did very well and moved on to California where they owned and operated a large lettuce farm. Any information about this part of my family would be greatly appreciated. Please write to me, Chris (Jordan) Baker at Thank You

Lincoln Schools

Project Read instruction for teachers
This summer, receive college graduate credits through Wayne State College and Peru State College -- 6 hours credit for the three week class (preferred); 2 hours credit for a one week class. Project Read is a reading program designed for at-risk elementary and junior high students. It utilizes direct, systematic instruction and the addition of the tactile-kinesthetic to the usual visual/auditory instruction usually used in schools today. This program has achieved great results with perceptually handicapped students, with the developmentally delayed, with students who "fall through the cracks" in eligibility for special programs, and with students with limited learning potential. This program may be used by regular classroom teachers, special education and Title 1 teachers, and for tutoring students, even those who have fallen many years behind!
