Historic Tate estate goes on the auction block They were high school sweethearts. He was a college football captain and war hero. On Saturday, a tribute to their legacy will be on full display with the auction of the estate of the late William Lee (Bill) and Kalima Dalton Tate. In addition to the many collectibles and furnishings, the cornerstone feature asset to be offered at the auction will be the historic Tate house at 1009 Prospect Ave. The house and the property that surrounds it have been owned by the same family since the early 1900s, when Kalima’s grandfather, Currell Dalton, purchased the house and several acres of land. Since that time, several generations of Daltons and five generations of Tates have called the house “home. “It’s stories like this that make our job truly enjoyable,” says Jarrod Hines, president of Entrusted Auctions of Fairlawn, who is conducting the auction. After both graduated from Pulaski High School, Kalima attended Westhampton College and Bill and his brother Ben were awarded football scholarships at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (VPI). In addition to earning a degree in electrical engineering, Bill played football for four years as a lineman, frequently playing both offense and defense. According to his son, Bill, his father graduated from VPI in the morning, was married to Kalima that afternoon and, in.
In 1966, downtown businesses handed out coins commemorating the big flood and “the city that saved itself,” he said. Winona milkman and former Navy diver Ray Beyers volunteered for a dangerous mission to save the city during the 1965 flood. Despite the tremendous effort of dike builders, water bubbling up from sewers threatened to flood the city. When 26-year-old Jerry Miller looked out at the gradually rising Mississippi River in early April, 1965, it seemed impossible that flood waters would inundate downtown and that he would have to park his family company’s cranes on top of... When a young Wayne Valentine came home to his apartment at Fifth and Sioux streets after giving news casts about the rising Mississippi, it seemed impossible that the river could reach his neighborhood. From April 12 to April 19, 1965, the Mississippi River rose seven feet in seven days, going from flood stage, 13 feet, to a record 20. 77 feet, higher than much of the city. The flood waters never reached Fifth and Sioux streets, but it easily could have. If the city’s defenses — hastily erected dikes, furiously churning pumps, and plugs in the sewer system placed by a daring diver — had failed, most of Winona would have been underwater. Flooding predictions did not become truly dire — or accurate — until April 9, 10 days before the crest.
Every day when Dr. Rosslyn Biggs goes to work as a federal government veterinarian she is reminded of her mother, one of 168 people killed in the Oklahoma City bombing and honored Sunday on the 20th anniversary of the deadliest terrorist attack... "I remember her spirit and her dedication," Biggs said as she and other family members gathered around an empty chair adorned with flowers in a field of empty chairs designed to memorialize the victims of the April 19, 1995 bombing. "It's wonderful to see that people still remember and still care," Biggs said. Former President Bill Clinton, who was president when the attack occurred, spoke at Sunday's service at the Oklahoma City National Memorial & Museum, where the Alfred P. Murrah Federal Building once stood. "Oklahoma City, you have chosen well," Clinton said. Clinton said the city has recovered from the terrorist attack "in the face of mad, crazy people who think that differences are all that matter. Photos: Victims remembered in ceremony at National Memorial and Museum. "The whole world needs you now," the former president said in reference to other deadly terrorist attacks that have occurred around the world.
