At the statewide Disabled American Veterans convention in Columbus on June 14-15, Don Piper, adjutant for DAV Chapter 3, was honored for his outstanding achievement to the DAV. Piper received a commemorative plaque.

David Olson bought a ticket for a lottery and hit the $5,000 jackpot. Olson is the DAV commander of Chapter 3, which includes the North Platte area.

Olson said he donated 10 percent of his winnings to the Lincoln Connection homeless shelter, paid bills and put the rest into savings.

Robert Kramer of Stapleton also participated in the lottery and was one of eight $100 winners.
