MAKE a DIFFERENCE in a YOUNG PERSON'S LIFE!

Cass Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is currently recruiting CASA advocates to speak up for the best interest of abused and neglected children in Cass County.

The next training session is scheduled to begin October 1 and will run for five weeks. The training consists of 15 hours of online training and 15 hours of in-person training.

We are also seeking male volunteers for this class as over 60% of our CASA children are males.

If you are interested, please contact Debbie Green at (402) 296-9521; emaildgreen@casscasa.org or if you would like to learn more information about our program, please visit www.casscasa.org.

NOTE FROM TOWN HALL...

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, and ask them to call if they, too, are interested.

2016 SPEER FAMILY

A LOVING, LASTING TRIBUTE...

*YOU STILL HAVE TIME TO ORDER YOUR MEMORIAL BRICK PAVER!

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!

.*BRICKS ARE ALREADY IN AND WILL BE ENGRAVED AS THEY'RE SET IN THE GROUND.

Some of the items to be displayed this season will be guitars from Sting and Taylor Swift, Debra Winger's 'Wonder Girl' costume, Ken Norton's boxing trunks and robe, signed baseballs and an evening gown from Katherine Heigl. From the movie 'Blindside', there's even a basketball hoop and jersey worn by country music star Tim McGraw. Oh, now give me a letter.  'V'.....YES! There's even a gown from Vanna White! Many TV show scripts, signed by cast members, will also be on display.

Each Tuesday thru Saturday thru the end of October, the museum will be open from 10 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.  They'll be closed Sundays and Mondays. To make a special appointment to view Memory Laneduring off-hours, call 402-297-1820, 402-267-4925 or 402-267-5562.

PCSD will integrate job search, workplace skills, and college preparation into its GED, English language, and Adult Basic Education courses.

To meet this challenge, an additional class session is being offered on Thursday mornings.
Classes are offered Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday during the public school year at 9:30 a.m. - noon and 6:30- 9 p.m., at the PACE Center, 15508 2nd Ave. The PACE Center is located across from the high school to the west.

Please call Tallie VanWesten, program director, at 402-296-3174 Ext. 2315 for information.
