Reminiscing with Ted Uecker
I had a very interesting interview with Hettinger resident Ted Uecker. I sat down with him and his wife Nancy at their house January 20th. In case there is anyone in the local area who isn’t aware of Mr. Uecker, he was quite a basketball player at Dickinson High School and Dickinson State College. He is a 1951 graduate of Dickinson High School and went on to graduate from DSU. His father was a cattle buyer in Hettinger so he moved to Hettinger and worked in that field after college.
