Something happened way back when, a crime long gone from the memories of anyone downtown Hawarden today. Probably never made the Sioux City Journal, but everyone in town, circa 1895, had to know because when the mighty fall the crash is as momentous as it is memorable.
This man was of high standing, among the pastor’s closest friends, a saintly man caught with his hands in the till, grabbing a fortune more than a few buffalo nickels. That good man’s fall affected a precocious little girl for the rest of her life, a child who became a novelist and never forgot.
SPM’s Gretchen Gondek speaks with Tracy Bennett from Siouxland Civic Dance about the Holiday Spectacular, happening this Saturday at 3 p.m. The event will be held at the Orpheum Theatre and features over one-hundred performers in holiday songs, verse, and dance. This year a living nativity will be staged as well as the classic “Parade of the Wooden Soldiers.”
