From Dream to Reality


by Tory Tedder Thank you to everyone who


wrote in to share your memories of a previous era. Sometimes we look back wistfully on how life was–it was a simpler time, individuals in communities knew each other. It was also harder. If I had to choose one word to sum up rural living  to be "dreary." I did not live during that time but almost every letter sent in used this word as did the letters from the original 1940 contest. OEC is happy to have been the vehicle through which dreariness has mostly been eradicated from our everyday language. As promised, all writers


were entered into a drawing for a "valuable new electric gift." That gift is pictured here: an AM/FM table top radio made by Sangean. This radio has vintage styling and quality workmanship, but it also has

write in and the three winners names drawn at random are: Mrs. Jan Isenhower Johnson of Tecumseh, Mr. Michael Whinery of Blanchard and Mr. Woody Havens of Newcastle "While I am too young at 62


years to remember much about the so-called, 'good old days,'" wrote Johnson, "I know enough to realize they were anything but! I do remember in pre-school the scary outhouse." She went on to write, "I have the


greatest admiration for our hardy forefathers who ran homes, farms, dairies and businesses without the luxuries we enjoy. Who knows what breakthroughs in the next generations will likely make our current lifestyles obsolete?"


Whinery wrote that his mother


Irene Whinery was one of the members whose letter was published in The Contact (and in April's OEC News) for the original 1940's contest. How exciting for him and his family to be part of the same contest 72 years apart. Havens wrote about


appreciating the source saying too many of us take for granted the  giving due credit. "Like groceries," he writes,


"some people think their food comes from [the store, but it's the] farmers of this great land [who] produce the food we eat. I am thankful for [the folks at] OEC who work 24/7 to make this happen. I am proud to be a member for 50 years." Mr. Havens, to you and all our


members, we at OEC are proud to be here for you.


Elegant simplicity combined with state-of-the-art performance sets the Sangean Model WR-11 AM/FM Table Top Radio head and shoulders above the competition. In true Sangean tradition, AM/FM reception is excellent providing clear and static free listening. Rotary dials adjust the volume, selects AM/FM bands, and precisely tunes your station selection displayed in a softly lighted analog display. An LED tuning eye assures you're achieving the best reception for your selected station. In addition, a stereo headphone jack and provision for an external AM and FM antenna is also provided. An AUX-In jack for playing your favorite MP3 music from your portable devices is available as well as a Record-Out jack for routing to your recording equipment or external devices.
