Many of us know how convenient it is to pay our utility bills electronically.  No writing out checks, no stamps or envelopes, just a couple of clicks and it's done.

The Village of Murray would like to know how many residents would actually use this service for payment of their water bills. Electronic payments would cost the Village a small amount per transaction to process, however the higher the number of users, the less it would cost.

If you're interested in this service, call Eileen at Town Hall, 402-235-2119. and ask that your name be added to the 'interested' list. It's not a guarantee that this will happen, but it will give the Board a good idea of how many are interested and if it should be implemented.

Pass this word on to your neighbors, too, and ask them to call if they, too, are interested.

Last October 20, 2016, as children were anxiously anticipating Halloween and lots of trick-or-treating, a beautiful, young family of six perished in the night, as their rural home went up in flames. Four little girls, Elli, Adilynn, Emma, ages 11, 7 and 5, were students at Conestoga Elementary and had many friends, in and around the surrounding area, as did their baby sister, Anniston, 2, and their parents, Mike and Michelle Speer.

In honor of her family, JoLynne Lehan, Mike's mom, has directed that donations go to Conestoga's outdoor classroom, Cougar Hollow. With the four little girls' love of performing, playing and being out-of-doors exploring nature, in mind, the new additions for this special area will include a pavilion for outdoor instruments, a chalkboard and chairs. A memorial fountain will be added at a later date.

A brick walking path will direct visitors to this special area. If you would like to honor this family with a loving tribute, you may purchase a memorial brick paver for $75. You may add any name to be engraved on the brick. There is space for 3 rows, with each row including a total of 14 characters, (including spaces). The clock is ticking...you need to order soon. Download an order form with complete directions and contact information here.

Thank you for helping to make this vision possible!

Hunger is an evil thing. Without enough good food, you can't think clearly, your immune system becomes compromised and you can become sick more often.  With Spring now here, they also need lighter clothing, shorts, short-sleeved shirts and tops, sundresses, etc.

When you donate food, hygiene and clean clothes, you're helping more than 30 needy kids in the Murray area.  

You may donate items at any time through May. There is a container at Cornerstone Bank, you may take items to Conestoga Elementary School, or call Jill, 402-660-3543, and she'll arrange to have your items picked up at your home.

It's easy to help.  Each time you go to the grocery store, just pick up one extra item for the kids.

“The Man Who Came to Dinner” at Lofte Theatre

The Lofte's second production of the year takes us back to small-town Ohio in the 1930s. Sheridan Whiteside ("Sherry" to his friends) is a famously outlandish New York City radio personality who has been invited to dine at the home of the well-to-do Stanley family. But disaster strikes before he enters the house. Whiteside slips on the ice and injures his hip!

What started out as a one-night event soon turns into a month-long convalescence. Confined to the house, Sherry drives his hosts mad by viciously insulting them, monopolizing their house, running up large phone bills, and receiving many bizarre guests, including paroled convicts.

This classic American script has enjoyed several revivals on Broadway and the London stage and was made into a feature film in 1942 starring Bette Davis, Jimmy Durante and Monty Woolly.

Ken Snyder of Elmwood is playing the irascible Sheridan Whiteside. He is joined on stage by Brenda Jones (Louisville) and Tim Sorensen (Elmwood) playing his hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Stanley. Rosalie Duffy (Lincoln) and Doug Rothgeb (Omaha) play the star-crossed Maggie Cutler and Bert Jefferson. Rounding out the cast are Dustin Reckling (Louisville), Jean Wymore (Syracuse), Jessica and Rita McKinney, Ken Patry and Trish Miller (Omaha), Cheryl and Will Jones (Manley), Tom Lucas (Papillion), Jeff Johnston (Elmwood), Mike Brown (Firth), Jim Skrobo (Elkhorn), Aubree Sweeney and Millard Carnes (Plattsmouth), Guillermo Rosas (La Vista), Zeke Rouse (Murray), Brenna Thompson, Nick Roth (Lincoln), John Bell and Dan Roberg (Omaha) and Shawn Reynolds (Bellevue). The production is directed by Kevin Colbert.

"The Man Who Came to Dinner" runs June 2-4 and 8-11. Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 7pm. Sunday performances begin at 2pm. Those interested in tickets may call the box office at 402-234-2553 or visit Lofte.org for online purchasing. All seats are reserved and ticket price is $19.

$27,000 in Internship Grants Awarded

to Nebraska Public Libraries

Nebraskans will once again reap the benefits of the energy and creativity of Nebraska young people as they serve as interns in their local public libraries. The Nebraska Library Commission recently awarded Nebraska Library Internship Grants totaling $27,000 to twenty-one Nebraska public libraries. These internship grants will support public library interns, who will contribute to the scope and value of the diverse programs and activities in Nebraska’s public libraries.

“The internships are a great opportunity for students to get involved in library work. Beyond earning money and gaining valuable work experience, the student is exposed to the broad range of library services and programming. Internships provide an opportunity for the student to view the library as a viable and satisfying career choice. In addition, interns bring a fresh perspective and their own unique talents to the library,” said Nebraska Library Commission Director Rod Wagner.

Student interns will learn about library work as they shadow staff, assist with day-to-day library operations, and implement special projects. Some of the activities that students will participate in include:
· plan and implement programs such as summer reading programs for all ages, storytime sessions, book discussions, and teen/tween activities;
· assist with events such as annual book sales, NE150 celebrations, and contests;
· organize Makerspaces and Maker Clubs, as well as other STEAM learning activities;
· create book displays, bulletin boards, and craft activities;
· assist with outreach events outside the library;
· update the library’s website and social media sites (Facebook, Pinterest, blogs, etc.);
· assist with circulation activities, book selection, and collection management;
· teach technology classes and assist library customers with electronic devices and research;
· create flyers, newsletters, newspaper articles, and other promotional materials; and
· assist with verbal and written Spanish⁄English communication.

The following Nebraska public libraries were awarded internship grant funding:
Alma, Hoesch Memorial Public Library
Atkinson Public Library
Central City Public Library
Columbus Public Library
Cozad, Wilson Public Library
Crawford Public Library
Geneva Public Library
Grant, Hastings Public Library
Kimball Public Library
LaVista Public Library
Lincoln City Libraries (4 branches)
Neligh Public Library
Norfolk Public Library
Omaha Public Library (4 branches)
Orleans, Cordelia B. Preston Memorial Library
Plainview Public Library
Schuyler Public Library
Stromsburg Public Library
Verdigre Public Library
Wayne Public Library
York, Kilgore Memorial Library

Funding for the project is supported in part by the Institute of Museum and Library Services (IMLS) under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act as administered by the Nebraska Library Commission, in partnership with the Nebraska Library Systems.

As the state library agency, the Nebraska Library Commission is an advocate for the library and information needs of all Nebraskans. The mission of the Library Commission is statewide promotion, development, and coordination of library and information services, bringing together people and information.

Nebraska’s Regional Library Systems consist of four non-profit corporations governed by boards representative of libraries and citizens in the region. The four systems were established to provide access to improved library services through the cooperation of all types of libraries and media centers within the counties included in each System area.

The Institute of Museum and Library Services is the primary source of federal support for the nation’s 123,000 libraries and 17,500 museums. The Institute’s mission is to create strong libraries and museums that connect people to information and ideas. To learn more about IMLS, see www.imls.gov/.

State Treasurer Stenberg Honors NEST Writers,
Delivers Unclaimed Property Check to Storm Chasers

Six seventh and eighth graders were recognized Sunday at Werner Park in Papillion in the “Why I Want to Go to College” writing contest sponsored by the Nebraska Educational Savings Trust and the Omaha Storm Chasers.

In addition to recognizing the students, Nebraska State Treasurer Don Stenberg had a surprise for the Storm Chasers. Treasurer Stenberg presented a check for $17,811.05 for unclaimed property to Martie Cordaro, president and general manager of the Storm Chasers. The check from the Treasurer’s Unclaimed Property Division was for refunds and account balances from four companies that had done business with the Storm Chasers.

“We were excited to award NEST scholarships to our writing contest winners and to present the Storm Chasers with a sizeable amount of money from our unclaimed property program,” Stenberg said. “These are two of the most visible programs in the Treasurer’s Office and represent our outreach and service to the residents of Nebraska. This was an excellent way to celebrate the 15th anniversary of our collaboration with the Storm Chasers for our annual writing contest.”

So far this year, the Treasurer’s Office has returned almost $7.4 million in unclaimed property to more than 9,400 individuals. Last year, the Treasurer’s Office returned a record $16.3 million, representing almost 17,000 claims from individuals.

Before the start of Sunday’s double header with the Reno Aces, the Storm Chasers thanked Treasurer Stenberg for his work with the Nebraska Educational Savings Trust, the state-sponsored 529 college savings program, and for his work returning unclaimed property to rightful owners.

“I am proud of the students who were recognized at home plate before the start of Sunday’s double header. They wrote persuasively about the people who inspire them as well as their career plans, educational goals, and the obstacles they have overcome. They represent Nebraska values of hard work, family support, perseverance, and a commitment to helping others,” Stenberg said.

Winners receive contributions to Nebraska Educational Savings Trust college savings plans, ranging in value from $500 for third place, $1,000 for second place, and $2,000 for first place. Three winners were chosen in each of Nebraska’s three U.S. congressional districts. Three winners from outside Nebraska also were chosen, but did not attend the game.

A record 1,847 entries were received this year from across the United States. The contest was announced in January and entries were due March 17. Preliminary judging was done by students and faculty in the College of Education at the University of Nebraska-Omaha with final selections made by Treasurer Stenberg.
