Greetings from Capps. It was a busy week for the Capps Batavia Fire Department. We responded early last Sunday morning to Sandflat Road for a lightning strike on a propane tank that ignited a small fire in the gas fireplace. Thankfully, it was contained to a small area and smoke inside the home was minimal. We had our annual firefighters meeting on Monday night and Wednesday morning we got called to assist Omaha Fire with a storage building Fire at Lilly Hobbs, which we didn't get to as it was put out quickly and we weren't needed. Our good friend, Russell Faddis, went to his heavenly home on Wednesday afternoon. He had battled an infection in his leg for several months and although we'll miss him, we know we'll see him again in glory. His sister, Wanda Henderson, of Capps, had also passed away recently. I got a surprise blessing when a woman I hadn't met before stopped by the nursery and gave me two booklets entitled, "Legends of the Hills", from the Alpena Historical Society. They contain stories from Boone and Carroll counties and Batavia and Pilot Knob as well. I look forward to perusing them soon as I'm a history buff. Thanks to everyone who has given me feedback about the article. I look forward to hearing from you. Blessings, Doug more

The Unity Prayer meeting will be held this month at Restoration Life Fellowship Church in Batavia on Tuesday, Feb. 28. Service begins at 6:30 p.m. In the event some readers don’t know what the Unity Prayer Meeting is about it is a gathering of Pastors to pray for each other and their congregations along with our spiritual leaders and our government leaders. Members of the various congregations also attend the prayer meetings. The goal is to unify our pastors and congregations so that we can be a mighty spiritual force against the powers of darkness. Charlie Marshall passed away Sunday, Feb. 19. I was elated to run on to Louise (Campbell) Bowers one day this week. It was such a pleasure to see her and visit for few minutes. Out of a family of twelve children Louise is the only one still living. Louise’s husband J.C. Bowers was with her and it was a pleasure to see him as well. more
Greetings from Capps. Spring fever is definitely here. We've enjoyed warm temperatures while the northern parts of the country are experiencing cold and blizzards. Some daffodils are blooming on Creel Road and I saw a Redbud in bloom in Capps also. Hopefully we won't have a late cold spell this year. The Homesteaders Swap Meet will be starting back up before long. Lots of activity on the Facebook page lately. Capps Batavia Fire Department responded to a large brush fire last week that burned several acres north of Harrison. Two homes were threatened but thankfully it was under control before spreading too close. Lots of folks are burning limbs that broke in the January snow storm, including myself. Waiting for cool, calm weather and not leaving fires unattended helps mitigate the chance of wildfire. We also had a representative from the new subdivision going in up Terrapin Creek Road attend our board meeting to discuss concerns about water supply issues for the area. Around 120 home sites are planned. I had lunch with Pastor Collie from Batavia Assembly of God last week. It was good to get to know him and have some fellowship. Their family moved here about a year before we did. I look forward to hearing from you about events, people and history of the Capps area. Blessings, Doug more
