From flood control to the first house in town, Frazee is filled with history and Mayor Hank Ludtke is ready to pass it along. Ludtke is hosting a History Hike through Frazee on Saturday, beginning at 8 a.m.
After 30-plus years of not knowing, the Andersen family finally knows their daughter and sister, Mary, is dead. The Frazee family found out a week ago that Mary, who has been gone since 1981, was murdered two years later in Gillette, Wyo., where she had been staying at the time. She was 23 when her family last saw her. “I want people to know she was a person. She’s not just a statistic anymore. She’s coming home,” her sister, Wendy Ketter, said. Mary and her husband went to Wyoming in 1981, and she last had contact with her family in 1982.
