The Rev. Dr. John Benner Fitz was born March 4, 1898, and passed away on Dec. 6, 1968. Married to his sweetheart, Edna, he was pastor for over 20 years at the First Presbyterian Church in Miles City, Montana, which is the Custer County seat, He was a "hellfire and damnation" preacher, theatrical in his oratory, and he wrote poetry too. A hardcover edition of his poems, "Look Up," goes with the hat. Look down appears to be what he did when giving an outdoor sermon in the summer of 1945, just as World War II was reaching its dramatic end. That is when he interrupted his speech briefly to shoot two encroaching rattlers, then continued right on with his sermon, remarking that it was a mellow morning. Time Magazine, The New York Times, and various other papers across the country recounted his coolness under fire and brimstone. The beaver hat he wore, a taupe, beaver felt cowboy hat, size X, will be auctioned off along with other raffle, items to benefit the Indian Valley Museum at its annual Cowboy Breakfast fundraiser, which precedes the Silver Buckle Rodeo on July 4. Tickets to the Cowboy Breakfast are $8. Following the breakfast, (7 am to 11 am) there will be an Independence Day parade at 10 a.m. Cowboys come from far and wide will test their roping skills at the Silver Buckle Rodeo, held that afternoon. There will be a dance at the Taylorsville Grange on July 3. Reservations open for campsites Little Grass Valley reservoir campsites are available for reservation.
