Many Sherman folk will remember Bob and Helen. They came to Sherman in the 1940’s. According to my 1948 year book Mrs. Reise,who was not married then, taught Language. The following year she was a second grade teacher and Mr. Reise taught.

The Reises ran the Chautauqua News from 1949 to 1953. No doubt many of you recall them during that time. In recent years Mr. Reise was in some form of publish business in the Buffalo area.

Elaine Cole, Sentnel Newspapers Sherman Columnist, reports how her 12-year-old son, Kevin, “came racing into the yard Tuesday morning and out of breath. He was all excited and announced he had just seen a bear on the trail beside the creek bank.” He and his horse were walking through the woods at the time.

“Kevin yelled,” she said, “and the bear, as well as the horse, took off in different directions. The horse didn’t stop until they reached home.”

A good rider, Mrs. Cole tells us she plans on taking a horseback ride, and a camera, through the area very soon.
