Editorial: Updates to the website and congratulations to Fieldcrest football team

October 29, 2019   Editor: David Uphoff
A few more additions have been made to this website this past summer. A web app has been developed for Android users and can be downloaded from the Google Playstore on your Android phone. Go to the Playstore and type in "MinonkTalk" and the MinonkTalk web app should show up and you can then click on the install button which will add an icon to your smart phone for MinonkTalk. A version is not available for IPhone users as Apple will not allow web apps on their store as everything must be written in Apple's developer language Objective C. Apple users will have to continue to view the MinonkTalk website through the Safari browser on their phone at

A search feature has been added to the Yearbook section of the website. Under the High School Yearbooks banner on the front page of MinonkTalk is a Search box in which you can enter the last name of a person you wish to find in the Yearbook section. This search box is also located on each Yearbook page as well. The search will display a list of all the persons matching the last name entered in the search box. To go to the person's yearbook age, just click on the desired name in the list box.

The Minonk history video that was created for Minonk's sesquicentennial in 2004 has been added to the website. The videos can be reached under the Reference menu category and is entitled Minonk History Videos at this link. There are 15 separate videos on Minonk's past. The video was the brainchild of the late James Weistart and was developed in conjunction with Dave Uphoff. The narration was done by Judy Olson and Dave Uphoff and much of the research and photos is accredited to the late Jari Lynn Oncken and Donna Rae Eilts.

We hope you enjoy these new features and we will continue to modernize and add more features to this website.

Lastly, we congratulate the Fieldcrest Knights football team on their undefeated season record of 9-0. This is the first time the Knights have been ranked number one in their State division and we wish them the best in the State playoffs starting this Friday against West Carroll here in Minonk.
