WELL, THIS STORY IS FOR THE BIRDS!!! 

 
For anyone who knows Nathan Weatherby, you probably think he's a pretty 'down-to-earth' guy. Well, he sure is - now!

Nathan was born and raised in Murray. He's a Wayne State student and plays football there, but returns home to Murray to work in the summertime. Not wanting to spend another weekend just hanging around, chillin' out, Nathan decided that he was up for a little more adventure before returning to school and football practice, so he went to Plattsmouth Airport last weekend and jumped out of a perfectly sound plane! 

2014-07-20 Skydive_plane

(Sure looks like a safe little aircraft to me!)

 

2014-07-20 Nate_boarding_thumbs_up

'I'm gonna do this!'


Before the jump, he was paired-up with his tandem instructor, 'Tom'. The pilot was Jerry Wall, the photographer, 'Baglock', who took these amazing photos.

2014-07-20 Nate_second_thoughts

'Uh, maybe I should re-think this thing....'

 

The guys' exit altitude was 13,500 feet when they jumped into a 35-second free fall, then the parachute landing which took about 4 minutes.

2014-07-20 Nates_jump

'Too late to turn back now!' 


2014-07-20 Nate_and_Tom_oh_no

'Hey, Tom, you're the instructor!  Why are you covering your eyes?!?!?!'

 

2014-07-20 Nate_easy_does_it

'Easy does it!'

 

2014-07-20 Nate_tumbling_thru_air

Tumbling through the air!  Check out that horizon!

 

2014-07-20 Nate_falling_thumbs_up

'Oh, yeah!  That's what I'm talkin' about!'

 

2014-07-20 Nate_birds_eye_view

Bird's eye view!

 

2014-07-20 Nate_swimming_thru_the_air

The guys almost look like they're swimming!

 

2014-07-20 Nate_and_falling_friends 

Not alone - more falling friends!

 

2014-07-20 Nate_try_to_break_the_fall

'Don't worry, Tom, I'll break our fall!'

 

2014-07-20 Nate_ripcord

Glad you remembered the ripcord!

 

2014-07-20 Nate_incoming_1

INCOMING!!

 

2014-07-20 Nate_safe_landing

A safe landing.  (Whew!)

 

2014-07-20 Nate_and_Tom_safe_on_ground

'No problem!  Ready for another jump?!?!' 

 

When I asked him about it, Nate told me, "I've always wanted to do it and it was so exciting! Just a blast! I would do it again in a heartbeat!"

You do that, Nate. I'll be watching from down here!

DO YOU WANT TO SAVE YOUR 4th of JULY CELEBRATION?



Have you grown up remembering this day as your 4th of July tradition?

What is your favorite part of the Cass County 4th of July celebration?  

Oozeball?  (Mud volleyball rocks, right?!)  

Ice cream social

Mr. and Ms. Murray competition

Bingo

Parade

Raffle

Auction

Fireworks

Anything else?

WHY IS THIS THE LAST YEAR FOR THE CASS COUNTY 4th of JULY CELEBRATION?

FACT #1

Due to the lack of volunteers to plan, organize and run the event.  It takes a minimum of 15 people to run the celebration.  Due to unforeseen circumstances we currently have 6 volunteers.  Without volunteers to run the above listed events, no money is made for the following year's celebration.

FACT #2

"We donated at the pancake feed."  Your donation at the Pancake Feed goes directly to our hard-working volunteer fire and rescue department, NOT the other 4th of July festivities.

FACT #3

We are currently in discussion with the village of Murray to possibly combine the celebration and make it the village of Murray's , as it was more than 40 years ago.

FACT #4

The only way to save our 4th of July celebration is to have 30-40 able-bodied volunteers, 18 years of age or older, to volunteer their time for a good cause.

So, if you are interested in becoming a volunteer, you must attend the next 

4th of July Committee Meeting

Murray Town Hall

Tuesday, July 29, 2014

 A lug is a measurement to measure produce.  A lug of peaches would be around 25 pounds,  less than a bushel.  That would make a lot of peach pies or jam!
