  • Schriever's Patriotic Neighbor

    Many Schriever motorists have noticed the house located on Highway 94 near Curtis Road and an American flag that always flies in the front yard -- wind, rain or shine. Jack Weber loves his solitude, his calves and his troops.

  • Schriever volunteers pitch in to beautify neighborhood park

    A little community park was getting a lot of tender love and care June 27 as Schriever volunteers set their sites on beautifying nearby Ellicott Park. The park was in need of that care -- chipped paint, overgrown bushes and other in-need-of-repair items got the attention they deserved.

  • Schriever barber offers 'no-frills,' high-quality service

    When someone comes to the Schriever Barber Shop for a haircut, the experience may take him back to the days of his youth -- days when visiting a barber shop meant getting a haircut from a friendly face in a simple, sunlit room, free of receptionists, incessantly ringing phones and gum-smacking teenagers. It's just Dawn Guggenbiller, a television
  • Power plant supervisor ensures mission stays uninterrupted

    A reverberating roar wails throughout the power plant. The vibrations crawl through the ground and travel up your legs as if you were standing next to an airplane engine fired up to full throttle. Now multiply that feeling by seven and you have enough generated power to keep Schriever's key satellite missions and their critical facilities running
