Flashback Friday – The Turtle Hunter

Local News

Our Flashback Friday segment this week takes us back 27 years.  At the time, Photographer Bob Neely did a series of stories called, ‘Bob Reports’.  On this particular day, Bob mentioned that he knew a guy, Don Helmbreck, who hunted turles and before you knew it, Bob and the turtle hunter were in a rowboat with some big hooks.

Neely says, “Don was a great guy and a good friend. He was a sportsman and hunter.  A biker and antique expert with a great instinct for the good in people and a keen eye for an outlaw. Don could fix about anything and if he couldn’t, he knew someone who could.”

Helmbreck has since passed, but we honor him tonight with this week’s Flashback Friday.
