In observance of Memorial Day May 30, the NRHEG Star Eagle will publish a section dedicated to our defenders of freedom.

Area veterans or family members are encouraged to bring in photos of veterans in uniform from all branches of service for inclusion and the recognition they so justly deserve.

Officially, Georgia Dinneen is retired from her job as an instructor at NRHEG High School.

But early this month, she was coaxed out of retirement for a few days.

As she has done 10 times since 2004, Dinneen accompanied NRHEG students and other chaperones on what has become the school’s annual trip to Washington, D.C.

“Our intention in the beginning was to go every other year,” said Dinneen. “This trip was our fourth year in a row.”

After retiring last spring, Dinneen was asked by NRHEG Administration to go on one last trip to D.C.

“That’s why I did it,” she said. “It was an especially enjoyable trip to me just because I got to spend time again with teenagers. They are what I miss most about retirement.”

Name change gains approval


Staff Writer

The renaming of the baseball diamond at Legion Field, street maintenance, storm sewer repair and moving forward with plans for a recycling program were all approved at a regular meeting of the New Richland City Council on Monday, April 25. All members were present, and the agenda and consent agenda items were approved.

Ed Dahle, on behalf of Quad Cities Baseball Association, presented the request to change the name of Legion Field’s baseball diamond to “The Jeff & Carol Reese Field at Legion Park.”

Jeff Reese, a well-respected coach in his long baseball career, has also been a meticulous caretaker of the baseball field, his work a large part of providing a diamond to be proud of. He and his late wife, Carol, also a big supporter of baseball, are considered pillars of the community. The council approved Resolution 16-05 naming Legion Field, which will officially take place before the baseball game on May 14.
