My congratulations to Sharon Tausch for an excellent article about Fred Nolting and his many inventions related to sewing and quilting. I knew he was very inventive, but I had no idea exactly how creative he really was.
My husband remembered, when the old Morgan County Rescue Squad existed, before it morphed into the Versailles Rural Fire Protection District, that Fred was a member and could be depended on to create any replacement part they needed for the fire apparatus and equipment. He just has a way of seeing exactly what is needed and creating it.
My thanks to Sharon for such a great story, and my compliments to the newspaper for sharing it, and to Fred Nolting for being able to take an idea and turn it into a solid object, useful to all involved.
