Exeter Resdient Celebrates 99th Birthday

“Exercise and word search puzzles,” are two of the keys of long life according to Exeter resident Sylvia Reil Riley.  Riley turned 99 on Saturday and wasn’t planning anything special for her birthday.

Originally from Milford, Riley lived in Crete and Sutton before moving to Friend in 1958.  She has lived in Exeter the past few years.  She and her husband, who passed away in 1980, had five children, four are still living.

She has always enjoyed gardening and canning, flea markets and fishing recalling many good memories of fishing trips to Milford Lake in Kansas and fishing in the Blue River.

Her daughter, Shirley Bowman, of Sterling, recalled her mother talking about throwing hay bales with her brothers as a young girl.  She also stated, “Mom walked a lot until she just couldn’t anymore.”

These days Riley continues to do her word search puzzles and play Bingo every chance she gets and doesn’t seem too impressed by the fact that she turned 99, “It’s nothing special.”

Exeter-Milligan Update: Computer Applications

Exeter-Milligan Computer Applications Students create movies using the iPads

Phyllis Severson's Computer Applications students, Shelby Bell and Wyatt Clift, were each given an iPad and told, "Use the iMovie application to make a movie on the iPad.  Oh, and by the way you also have to teach yourself how to use the app."  Both students rose to the challenge with each making a 2 minute "movie" to share.  Next up for the class is to create their own song using the Garage Band Application for the iPad.
