Apparently the Cottonwood Airport was the site last week for 3 military Ospreys to practice touch and go takeoffs and landings from a small airport runway. Despite their large size, the vertical propellers allow the planes to take off and land like a helicopter so they donít need a long runway, Kate Dahlsrud snapped this photo from the Cottonwood Riding Club Arena last Thursday afternoon.

This week we looked back on Hoene Hardware, which closed May 31 after 111 years and 2 months of operation in Cottonwood. 4 generations of Hoenes owned the store and 5 generations worked there. In the family history that Grandpa Gus wrote in the early 80s, this picture is dated at July 1, 1912. and could be opening day when John Hoene moved into the new brick store Left to right are Frank Kelsey, F. Nuxoll, Nick Allen and John Hoene. Notice the wood sidewalks. My grandpa said when he was a little kid, one of his favorite things to do was look under wood sidewalks for dropped coins. A few years later he added concrete sidewalks and gas pumps which we see by the 1915 store picture. The great Cottonwood fire was in July of 1908 after he opened the original store April 1, 1908. Why did it take John Hoene 4 years to rebuild? By the way, the newspaper article is from the Spokane paper. Well, in 1909, Johnís father died and he and Susie traveled back to Illinois and moved the rest of the family out here. Also they lost another baby at 16 months old - Eleanor died in September of 1910.  John says it best in his writing "John and his wife suffered many setbacks and sorrows but they were people of strong character and faith, . . ."
