Earth

Earth Day, Tuesday, April 22, 2014,  is truly everybody's day. It's a day to celebrate and appreciate our natural environment and make changes to help and enhance it. Recycle, clean-up in and around your yard, then plant a tree or other perennial that can be enjoyed for many years to come.  The earth will respond and thank you by providing you with water, food and beauty.  When we respect it, we all can enjoy our beautiful Earth.

 

In Tune With Mother Nature


If you listen for the songbirds

As they greet the summer sun,

And love the way the wind can make

The trees sing just for fun;

If you like to hear the ocean

As it drums upon the shore,

And imagine all the whales out there,

And hope they'll sing some more;

If you think of all the animals

As players in a band,

Each with a lovely tune to play,

All needed on the land;

And know that as a boy or girl,

A woman or a man,

You have a vital role to play

In Mother Nature's plan;

If you honor every living thing

As a part of nature's treasure

You're in tune with Mother Nature

So let's all sing her song together.

PLEASE! NO BURNING! 

 

Many grass fires along with the high winds lately have been keeping Murray and surrounding fire departments very busy.  It's much too dry to be starting any fires, even those in burn barrels.

 PLEASE - DO NOT throw lit cigarettes outdoors!  

 

THANK YOU!

 2014-03-19 CONSTRUCTION

A six-mile stretch of Highway 75 south of the Union corner will be shut down until September while crews rebuild the road.    

  Either plan to detour west on Hwy 34 to Hwy 50, then south to Hwy 2, or go across the Plattsmouth toll bridge to I-29 and down the interstate.   

 Plan accordingly, so you don't have to hurry! 

 DRIVE SAFELY - AND THAT KEEPS OTHERS SAFE, TOO

 


 


2014 MURRAY_GARAGE_SALES 

The Murray sales will be EVERY YEAR the weekend BETWEEN Mother's Day and Memorial Day.  This year it's on Friday and Saturday, May 16 and 17.   

 The cost will again be $12 to have your sale put on the map, newspaper advertising, paper and ink for posted fliers. Please have your money turned in to me by Saturday, May 3rd.  This deadline helps me determine how many ads AND how many words I can use for those newspaper ads.  (The sooner the money is turned in, the more advertising I can do.)  

 If a youth, church or other NON-PROFIT group wishes to participate with a sale or concession stand, remember there's NO CHARGE to them, but a representative needs to let me know and I'll be glad to put it on the map. The week of May 18, immediately after our sales,  volunteers from Hosanna Lutheran will pick up your leftover sale items.  You might want to start saving some good sturdy boxes for those items, , because they do stack better than bags and it will help to make the volunteers' job much easier.  Please call 402-235-2999 to schedule your pick-up time. 

 Please feel free to forward this note to your other Murray friends and neighbors and maybe even print the form below and put it on your fridge or bulletin board as a reminder.  I'll also be leaving some forms in the post office and at Town Hall, too.


Thanks!

Pat

2014-03-05 SELF-HELP_Screen_Shot

COMEDY, 'SELF-HELP', at MAHONEY STATE PARK

KBC Productions is now presenting the comedy production, 'Self-Help,' at the Kountze Theater in Mahoney State Park.

Written by Norm Foster, 'Self-Help,' tells of Hal and Cindy Savage who reinvent themselves as self-help gurus and relationship experts. When their own marriage starts to   
take a nosedive and they find a dead man in their study, their professional status hangs in the balance. This is an adult farce with hilarious situations. Director Kevin Colbert suggests a PG-13 rating.

Kevin Colbert also stars in this production along with Brandy Palatas of Papillion as his wife. Stacy White and Shari Hoelker of Omaha, Jim Knierim of Louisville and Harold Scott of Lincoln round out the cast.

Performance dates are  April 18 and 19. Curtain times are Fridays and Saturdays at 7:30pm. Sunday performances are 2 pm matinees.

Mahoney State Park is located off the interstate on exit 426. Tickets are $10 for adults and $8 for children under 12. While some tickets are available at the door, you can call to reserve your tickets at (402) 944-2523 ext 7122. A valid park entry permit is required.

2012-07-25 CASA_LOGO

CASS COUNTY CASA VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!

We are currently recruiting CASA Volunteers for the upcoming training session scheduled in April 2014. We only train two classes a year, call and reserve your spot today.

What does a Court Appointed Special Advocate volunteer do? Each CASA volunteer is screened, trained and completes 30 hours of pre-service training. Once trained, CASA volunteers are assigned under the Juvenile Court jurisdiction to speak on behalf of a child to ensure the needs and interests of abused and neglected children are being met.

Who are CASA volunteers? Our active volunteers are individuals from our community who work part-time, full-time or are retired. Volunteers commit to one year with a child, but seldom leave a case until it has been terminated.

If I can't be a CASA volunteer, how can I help? In addition to training new CASA volunteers, we are also in need of administrative services support such as filing, data entry and making copies.

Your help directly benefits the Cass County CASA Program. A donor-supported volunteer organization whose mission is to offer court-appointed volunteer advocacy to children that are abused, neglected and often find themselves lost in the court system. Through Cass County CASA, these children are placed with advocates that speak on their behalf and know them well enough to make informed recommendations to the judge.

Please call Angie Neumiller, Executive Director at 402-296-9620 or email   This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it  and become a CASA volunteer today.
