TO ALL MURRAY RESIDENTS

BURN SITE RULES AND REGULATIONS


The Murray Burn Site is set to open shortly and in light of our recent clean-up of the site, which was required by the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality (NDEQ), there are some new rules and regulations that all residents should be aware of. These will be strictly enforced.

1. The only items that may go onto the burn pile are tree limbs and untreated lumber. These are the only items that are burnable under our burn permit from the NDEQ.

2. All yard and garden waste will go in a separate pile at the site to be composted by an outside vendor.

3. No other materials of any kind shall be permitted.

4. The Burn Site will be open only on Saturday from 9-Noon.

The Site will be monitored by a camera 24 hours/day, 7 days a week. Any violation of the above rules will result in a first time fine of $150.00; any subsequent violations will be $300.00 per violation.

The Village Board appreciates your cooperation in this matter.

OLD SCHOOLHOUSE FIDDLING BEE RESULTS 

 

The Eighteenth Annual Schoolhouse Fiddling Bee in Avoca, Nebraska, was enjoyed by a full house on Sunday afternoon, October 12, in The Old Avoca Schoolhouse.

Twelve musicians from Auburn, Avoca, Alvo, Bellevue, Omaha, Ord, and Seward, Stillwell, Kansas competed and jammed with their fiddles, guitars, a harmonica, a clarinet, and harmonious voices, for cash money and prizes.

In the Open Division, each fiddler had to play a hoedown, a waltz, and a tune of choice. The winners were:

First Place - Cece Chapel, from Stilwell, Kansas
Second Place - Sophie Clark, from Omaha, NE
Third Place - Helen Brousek, from Bellevue, NE

In the Singing Division, each fiddler has to play and sing a tune at the same time. The winner was Sophie Clark, from Omaha, NE.

First Place in the Hocus Pocus Division was earned by the magical trio of John McNaught from Alvo, Mary Fohner from Elmwood, NE, and Lee Copple from Elmwood, NE.

In the Twin Fiddling Division, two fiddlers had to play a tune together, with one of them playing the melody, and the other playing the harmony. The winners were Helen Corrigan, from Omaha, NE, and Olivia York from Bellevue, Ne

Next year, the 19th Annual Schoolhouse Fiddling Bee will be held on Sunday, October 11, 2015.

HITCHCOCK-BASED, "WRONG WINDOW!"  

NOW at  

LOFTE THEATRE 

The hilarious Hitchcock-inspired farce, " Wrong Window!" is now at  the Lofte Community Theatre' .The script is written by the successful writing team of VanZandt and Milmore whose other works include "Love, Sex and the I.R.S.," and "Suitehearts."

New York couple Marnie and Jeff think their neighbor has killed his wife. However, the woman's body soon disappears and the bumbling witnesses sneak into the cross-courtyard apartment to solve the mystery. In all, there are over 30 script references to the works and characters in Alfred Hitchcock films. Can you spot them all?

The production is directed by and stars Kevin Colbert as Jeff. His wife Marnie is played by Brandy Palatas of Papillion. Rounding out the cast are Scott Pope and Scott Nielsen of Eagle, Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth, John Bell and Ken Patry of Omaha, and Jeff Johnston and Ken Snyder of Elmwood. Alyssa DiPaolo of Lincoln gives a stunning performance as the dead body.

Performance dates for "Wrong Window!" are October 24-26. Friday and Saturday curtain times are at 7:30pm. All Sunday performances are 2pm matinees. Tickets are $19 and reservations can be made by calling the box office at 402-234-2553. The Lofte Community Theatre is located just east of Hwy 50 near the town of Manley.
