    Ladies and gentlemen, many years ago the Highland County Historical Society created the Highland County Hall of Fame to recognize, honor and celebrate those who have made invaluable contributions to the county and/or the world beyond. By honoring and recognizing these people, the Hall of Fame serves to stimulate an interest in – and appreciation for – the value of the history of this county and its citizens. Further, the Hall reinforces to our youths that they can, and should, strive for excellence in any endeavor they may undertake.

    Ladies and gentlemen, in our colloquies about the life and times of longtime Hillsboro veterinary surgeon Dr. Samuel Rogers “S.R.” Howard (1861-1933), we discussed last time how his wife, Clara, passed away in 1894 at the age of 28 shortly after giving birth to their son, Joseph, and how Joseph survived World War I, but died in a railroad accident in May of 1920.

    Ladies and gentlemen, in our colloquies about the life and times of Hillsboro veterinary surgeon Dr. Samuel Rogers “S.R.” Howard (1861-1933), we’ve talked about how he specialized in horse dentistry, saved some cows who ate dynamite and how the uptown office he leased came tumbling down in 1909.

    Ladies and gentlemen, in last week’s blast from the past, the colloquy was on the time Hillsboro veterinary surgeon Dr. Samuel Rogers “S.R.” Howard saved three cows that had eaten dynamite in 1899. About a decade later, Doc Howard was credited for saving human lives when part of the oldest building in Hillsboro came tumbling down.
