IT HAPPENED IN SPRINGFIELD HISTORY

Oldest House

One of the oldest homes built in the Springfield area is located southeast of town on 132nd Street. The year 1876 is etched above a door. That makes this house 145 years old. Constructed of limestone, the walls of the house are approximately two feet thick. The original landowner, Erastus Upjohn, was granted the property prior to 1858 according to the Sarpy County Register of Deeds. The land was sold to Henry Zoller in 1858. The property was deeded to Jacob Fackler in 1868. It is believed the original house was built by Mr. Fackler. The home has survived many inhabitants and is still occupied today.

NATIONAL BOY SCOUT WEEK

FEBRUARY 4-10, 2021

 Boy Scouts in the United States celebrate National Boy Scout Week every year during the first week in February. The Boy Scouts of America was founded on February 8, 1910 by entrepreneur, W.D Boyce. The Boy Scouts of America is one of the largest youth organizations in the United States. Famous boy scouts include: Stephen Spielberg, Michael Jordan, Neil Armstrong, Martin Luther King, Jr., George Strait, and John F. Kennedy. Over the years the Boy Scouts have seen many changes but their original purpose remains the same. The scouts teach youth responsible citizenship, character development, and self-reliance.

In our community the Springfield Boy Scout Troop 711 is active today. For more information on Springfield's local troop, contact: Scoutmaster: Joe Hagerty at: 402-699-8234.

UTILITY ASSISTANCE FUNDRAISER GOES VIRTUAL FOR 2021,

WITH GREATER NEED

 The COVID-19 pandemic has impacted people across our communities both physically and financially. Combined, Omaha Public Power District and Metropolitan Utilities District have seen a 38% increase in the number of customers requesting assistance with their bills.

 The utilities are coming together, as they do every year, to raise money for energy assistance programs through the Heat the Streets Run & Walk for Warmth, which will take place March 6, 2021. This is the 14th year of the event. This year, it will be held virtually in order to help prevent the spread of COVID-19.

 While utility assistance is a year-round need, this event is held during the cold winter months to bring attention to those who struggle to keep the lights on and heat their homes.

 “Keeping homes warm and safe has taken on an even higher priority within the last year,” said Tanya Cook, director, M.U.D. Board of Directors. “I'm proud to lend my support to this event."

 Cook is co-chairing this year’s event, alongside Janece Mollhoff, director, OPPD Board of Directors, and her husband, Wayne Mollhoff.

 “We are seeing a record number of first-time applicants. These are customers who have never needed to reach out for help before,” said Director Mollhoff. “It’s clear the pandemic has taken its toll. We need to support our communities through the recovery.”

 OPPD and M.U.D. encourage participants to complete the 5K run or one-mile walk on March 6 on their own – in neighborhoods, local trails, or even on a treadmill. Custom neck gaiters will be mailed to all registrants.

 Participants in the 5K may submit their results online. Awards will be mailed to the first-, second- and third-place male and female runners in each of the following age divisions:

  • 12 and under, 13-19, 20-29, 30-39, 40-49, 50-59, and 60+

 Register for the event or simply donate to the cause by visiting HeatTheStreetsOmaha.com.

Virtual 5K price:

  • $35 (Now through March 6)

Virtual one-mile walk price:

  • $25 (Now through March 6)

Children 12 and under receive free registration for the one-mile walk with a paid adult.
