Hastings woman winner of special gun

Linda Jacobs checks out the rifle she won after buying a raffle
ticket from Dean Blain as a fundraiser for the town of Oak.
The drawing was held over the weekend during Oregon Trail
Day and the gun was delivered to Jacobs Thursday at her home
in Hastings.

Linda Jacobs may be a crack shot with the BB gun she uses to pick off rabbits around her home, but her newest firearm will just be displayed on the wall.

A raffle ticket she purchased from Oregon Trail Day Celebration committee member Dean Blain won her an engraved Henry 45LC rifle. Blain and fellow committee member Cloma Corman of Oak presented her with the gun Thursday afternoon.

“Basically, it’ll be a commemorative thing for us,” Jacobs said.
