Attention, Murray Trick or Treaters:
For a number of years Murray Christian Church has enjoyed opening our doors to the families of our community on Halloween. Whether it be for a spot to warm up, using the bathroom and/or coming in to enjoy a hotdog and hot chocolate, we love being available for the youth and families.
After careful consideration, the MCC board has decided to not be open for our Halloween event this year. It was a hard decision to make, but our greatest concern is the health and welfare of the families that come to us. We are uncomfortable with the risks involved in congregating larger groups of people and the risk of the spread of CoVid.
Please be safe and we will look forward to seeing you all next year.
Pastor Mike and the Murray Christian Church Board
PLEASE LET FRIENDS & FAMILY KNOW WHO LIVE IN THE COUNTIES BELOW:
OCTOBER 21, 2020 — The American Red Cross is urging healthy donors of all blood types to give blood or platelets to ensure a strong blood supply for patients as the U.S. braces for flu season while in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Flu shot doesn’t affect blood donation eligibility.
Medical experts are urging people to get the flu shot to avoid a flu epidemic on top of the current COVID-19 pandemic. Because blood can only be given by those who are feeling well, a severe flu season could create additional challenges to maintaining a sufficient blood supply for hospital patients in need.
Get the flu vaccine this year to help protect the nation from the virus but also to ensure that patients continue to have access to lifesaving blood products. There is no waiting period to give blood or platelets after receiving a flu shot as long as the donor is symptom-free and fever-free. There is no risk of transmitting the influenza virus after receiving a flu vaccination.
For those that have the flu, it is important to wait until they no longer exhibit flu symptoms, have recovered completely and feel well before attempting to donate. Donors must feel healthy and well on the day of donation.
Stay healthy this flu season and make an appointment to donate blood by downloading the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visiting RedCrossBlood.org, calling 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767) or enabling the Blood Donor Skill on any Alexa Echo device.
In thanks for making time to donate, the Red Cross will send those who come to give Oct. 15-Nov. 11 a $5 Amazon.com Gift Card via email, courtesy of Suburban Propane. Plus, those who come to give in October are automatically entered for a chance to win a $1,000 Amazon.com Gift Card. Five lucky people will win. (Restrictions apply. Additional information and details are available at RedCrossBlood.org/Unite.)
Important COVID-19 information for donors
The Red Cross is testing blood, platelet and plasma donations for COVID-19 antibodies. The test may indicate if the donor’s immune system has produced antibodies to this coronavirus, regardless of whether an individual developed COVID-19 symptoms. Red Cross antibody tests will be helpful to identify individuals who have COVID-19 antibodies and may now help current coronavirus patients in need of convalescent plasma transfusions. Convalescent plasma is a type of blood donation collected from COVID-19 survivors that have antibodies that may help patients who are actively fighting the virus.
COVID-19 antibody test results will be available within one to two weeks in the Red Cross Blood Donor App or donor portal at RedCrossBlood.org. A positive antibody test result does not confirm infection or immunity. The Red Cross is not testing donors to diagnose illness, referred to as a diagnostic test. To protect the health and safety of Red Cross staff and donors, it is important that individuals who do not feel well or believe they may be ill with COVID-19 postpone donation.
Each Red Cross blood drive and donation center follows the highest standards of safety and infection control, and additional precautions – including temperature checks, social distancing and face coverings for donors and staff – have been implemented to help protect the health of all those in attendance. Donors are asked to schedule an appointment prior to arriving at the drive and are required to wear a face covering or mask while at the drive, in alignment with Centers for Disease Control and Prevention public guidance.

LAST DAY FOR EARLY IN-PERSON VOTING AT ELECTION OFFICE.
NOV 3, 2020
8 AM-8 PM, NE STATEWIDE GENERAL ELECTION DAY IN-PERSON AT POLLS.
CALL ELECTION OFFICE FOR MORE INFORMATION AND HOURS, 402-296-9309.
Cass County Nebraska voters who requested absentee ballots should have received them by now. They were mailed during the last week of September.
Remember that if you don't know about any of those running for office, it's important that you do your research. It's your right, if you only want to mark one oval on the ballot. Whatever, and whomever, you choose to vote for, do it wisely. Put as much time and thought into voting, as you would when buying a house, a car or a large appliance. Don't vote solely because you've seen ads or yard signs with a name that sticks in your mind. Do your research about each person or topic that's on the ballot, and consider them logically. It's your right to vote, but it's your duty to find out the facts first. Then make a 'pros' and 'cons' list and compare the two. Remember to USE BLACK INK, FILL the OVALS COMPLETELY and SIGN the YELLOW RETURN ENVELOPE!
If you have already mailed, or taken your ballot to the Election Office, you can check the status of your ballot here: https://www.votercheck.necvr.ne.gov/voterview.

Parks speak volumes about a town. They send a message to all that nature is to be enjoyed. On a beautiful afternoon, getting outside in the fresh air, gathering with friends and family, and just enjoying the simple things in life is one of life’s most basic pleasures. A chat with a friend on the park bench, kids gleefully playing on the swings and other equipment, picnic tables full of goodies, and sports teams hosting out-of-town visitors in another good-hearted, competitive game, brings lots of joy to a community and to those who visit it. Our parks in Murray are no exception. Much has been invested for your, and your family's, enjoyment. It takes years of planning and hard work from volunteers and village maintenance personnel to improve and keep our parks in good condition. In the past couple of years, we've been able to add more playground equipment, a memorial wall, and repair and update the bathrooms at Tyson Park.
Recently, there has again been vandalism at Tyson Park's new restrooms. Shredded rubber matting, used around the playground equipment has been scooped up and put into the toilets, sinks and all over the floors in the bathrooms. Soap dispensers have been emptied and filled with dirt. Vandalism causes plumbing and other, ordinarily unnecessary, repairs. That means more money has to be spent on manpower hours and supplies to clean up and fix the damage.
Now, in these uncertain times, the federal government's purse strings might soon be tightened for cities, towns and villages, due to the covid impact. It's possible that the bathrooms can't be opened again without that funding. That would deter a lot of people from using the parks.
Please talk to your children, no matter their age, about respecting and taking care of Village property. Have a serious talk with them and make it clear that the bathroom facilities are for their personal use, if needed, and that they are not their own private 'toys'. Make it clear to them that everyone who goes to the park expects the bathrooms to be in good working order. If a picnic or party is planned to gather there, the entire day could be ruined if vandals have caused the bathrooms to be closed. Explain to them who has to take care of the Village and how these things are paid for...from
YOUR OWN TAX DOLLARS.
T.E.A.M. PRESENTS FREE-DRIVE IN MOVIE TO KICK OFF RED RIBBON WEEK
Papillion, NE- Each year from October 23 to 31, individuals, schools, and communities across the United States show their commitment to a healthy, drug-free lifestyle by wearing or displaying the red ribbon. Red Ribbon Week raises awareness of drug use and the problems related to drugs faced by individuals, families, and communities. This annual health observance encourages parents, educators, business owners, and other community organizations to promote drug-free lifestyles.
Tobacco Education & Advocacy of the Midlands (T.E.A.M.) is hosting a FREE Drive-In Movie at Falconwood Park in Bellevue on October 22nd to kick off Red Ribbon Week. This “Be Happy. Be Brave. Be Drug Free” event includes a tobacco-free family-friendly movie showing of “Hocus Pocus” for 100 vehicles free of charge. T.E.A.M. will provide each vehicle a complimentary goodie bag that includes a red ribbon. Anyone 18 years or older can register for a parking pass at www.TeamTobaccoFree.org. Only one person in each vehicle needs to register for a pass, and they are available on a first-come, first-served basis. Social distancing measures will be taken and masks are required when outside of a vehicle.
“As many community events and activities have been postponed or canceled, we wanted to provide a safe experience for people to leave their homes and watch a movie in a tobacco-free setting outdoors – at no cost to them,” said Autumn Sky Burns, T.E.A.M.’s Outreach Coordinator for Sarpy County.
Falconwood Park will open at 5:30 p.m. for the 7 p.m. showing. Audio will be enabled through each car’s FM radio, and on-site attendants will guide vehicles to their parking spots and check that everyone follows the Sarpy Cass Health Department COVID-19 Event and Gathering Safety Plan. No tobacco or alcohol use is allowed inside or out of vehicles.
T.E.A.M. is a community coalition of organizations, educational and community groups, and individuals that meet monthly to educate and advocate for healthy tobacco-free communities. For more information, call 402-593-3022, email Info@TeamTobaccoFree.org or visit www.TeamTobaccoFree.org.
Funding provided by the Nebraska Department of Health and Human Services/Tobacco Free Nebraska Program as a result of the Tobacco Master Settlement Agreement.

Nebraska Bar Foundation Provides Free ‘I Voted’ Stickers, Encourages Teachers to Use New Curriculum
Lincoln, Neb. (October 13, 2020) – “I Voted” stickers for Nebraska students taking part in a new K-12 curriculum offered by the Nebraska State Bar Foundation are available for order at the Foundation’s website. The stickers, to be used as part of the Foundation’s Kids Voting - Nebraska ABC, can be ordered at no charge at https://www.nebarfnd.org/civics-education/kids-voting-nebraska-abc.
Doris Huffman, Foundation executive director, said Kids Voting-Nebraska ABC attempts to recreate the voting experience for Nebraska children and teens as accurately as possible, even featuring early voting. “It’s fun, educational and critical to creating communities in which citizens actively engage, participate and vote,” Huffman said. “We encourage teachers across the state, in these final days before the election, to take advantage of the excellent resources offered through Kids Voting - Nebraska ABC.”
The Foundation’s website also provides an online opportunity for students to vote for President, U.S. Senate and the U.S. House of Representatives, beginning in early October and continuing through Election Day on Nov. 3.
The stickers and online voting opportunity are the culminating pieces of the Foundation’s new Civics Education program, Kids Voting - Nebraska ABC (A Ballot Counts), offered just in time for the 2020 election. The program for public, private and home schools provides a comprehensive curriculum with more than 160 lesson plans for K-12 students and a mock election template using paper ballots or electronic voting. The program also includes activities for families and teacher resources.
“The stickers are the Bar Foundation’s way to encourage students from kindergarten through 12th grade to learn about voting through Kids Voting - Nebraska ABC and to get involved in this year’s election. Kids Voting is intended to encourage family conversations about voting and citizenship,” said Steve Guenzel, president of the Bar Foundation. “The ultimate goal is to improve voter turnout, create lifelong voting habits and encourage active civic engagement across Nebraska.”
Kids Voting resources can be found at https://www.nebarfnd.org/civics-education/kids-voting-nebraska-abc.
“In Nebraska, 63 percent of the eligible voting population turned out to vote in 2016, which was above the national average,” Huffman said. “We believe Kids Voting - Nebraska ABC will build awareness and understanding of the process and help instill lifelong voting habits in these kids when they reach voting age. The goal is to eventually increase the percentage of Nebraskans who go to the polls in every election.”
Kids Voting is an affiliate of KidsVoting USA, administered by the Arizona Bar Foundation.
The Nebraska State Bar Foundation was incorporated in 1963 as a 501(c)(3) charitable and educational organization to serve as the philanthropic arm of Nebraska’s legal profession. The Foundation is dedicated to serving the citizens of Nebraska and the legal profession through innovative and creative programs directed at improving the administration of justice and fulfilling the American vision of equal justice for all. Learn more about the Foundation at www.nebarfnd.org.
All children need a secure place to learn and grow. The ideal place should be in their own home, however many kids are not that fortunate.
In times of neglect or abuse, a child must sometimes be removed from their home at a moment's noticed and placed in a warm, safe place. Kids of all ages, from birth through high school, sometimes need the help of the Child Saving Institute.
CSI helps foster parents and biological families learn the skills they need for a safe, well-cared-for, and loving family life.During this unsettling time of covid-19, the Murray Christian Church is collecting essential cleaning items for the Child Saving Institute.
If you would like to donate, here are some things they could use:Pine Sol, Lysol Disinfectant Spray, sanitizing wipes, latex and powder-free disposable gloves, (L & XL), and hand sanitizer.
Please bring items to Murray Christian Church, 304 W Young St, Murray, NE on Wednesdays, Thursdays or Fridays, between the hours of 10 - 2:00. You may call the church ahead of time, 402-235-2527, to be sure someone will be there to assist you.
Thank you for helping to keep these children, (and the CSI staff), healthy and happy!

NOW THAT YOU'VE REGISTERED, GET THE FACTS!
There are really NO EXCUSES for failing to vote. You have to work that day? No excuse. Don't have a babysitter? No excuse. You don't want to go out in a crowd? No excuse. Do you know that any Nebraska resident who is a LEGALLY REGISTERED VOTER may request an EARLY-VOTING BALLOT APPLICATION, (also known as an 'ABSENTEE' ballot)? You don't even need to have a reason, (or an excuse), for the request!
One excellent reason for voting by absentee, is the weather. An ice or snow storm, heavy winds or torrential rains could possibly keep you from physically voting on the actual Election Day. No worries about that with your mail-in vote either.
Do you need another good reason for voting by mail? You might get sick and cannot physically go to your polling place.
The following should help you save time:
- Cass County NE voters may print the Early Voting Ballot Application HERE.
- OR call your local Election Office and ask for one to be mailed to you. In Cass County NE, that's 402-296-9309.
- OR in Cass County NE, there is a box located outside the building where you can just pick one up. You may also pick one up at the Election Office inside. The address is 201 Main Street, Plattsmouth, NE, (white building southeast of the flag pole).
Accurately, completely fill out the form. Include your name, residence address, phone number, mailing address you want the ballot sent to and your signature. Even if you do the automatic fill-in form online, you still need to SIGN IT after you print it. Mail it right away or take it to the Cass County NE Election Office and drop it in the box outside on the southwest wall of the building.
On September 28th ballots will start to be sent out and you should receive yours shortly thereafter.
So get your Early Voting Ballot Application form filled-out now, before the big rush. The last day to request an Early Voting Ballot to be mailed to you is October 23rd.
Just do it now. Election Day will be here before you know it!
Cass County NE Voters can also check HERE.
Next to the Cass County Election Office door you'll see two sets of forms, one on the right for Voter Registration and on the left, the Early Voting Forms.
After they're filled out and signed, you may take them inside, mail them, or drop them in the 'Ballot Box' around the corner of the building, to the right of the big Election Office sign.
Even during the summer and amid the Covid19 crisis, the Conestoga Backpack Program continues to furnish food to local families in need. The program serves the Murray, Nehawka, Union and Beaver Lake areas in southeast Nebraska, and will not turn anyone away.
Just by adding a few of the items listed below to your shopping list and picking them up, you'll be helping someone in a big way. Keep in mind that some of the children are very young and are possibly 'preparing' their own meals, so easy-to-open containers are a good option for little hands.
Canned or boxed pasta
Dry soup mixes
Canned meat (chicken, tuna)
Boxed prepared meal kits (Hamburger Helper, Rice-a-Roni)
Canned fruit and vegetables
Also needed are hygienic supplies, toothbrushes, toothpaste, soap, cotton swabs, tissues and toilet paper.
To make a monetary donation instead, please a check made payable to CONESTOGA BACKPACK PROGRAM may be mailed or deposited at Cornerstone Bank, 102 W Main St, Murray, NE 68409. 100% of all monies collected is used for food and hygienic supplies for the families.
To have the items picked up, call Jill at 402-660-3543 to make arrangements. As another alternative, you may drop them off at Cornerstone Bank in Murray or at their Beaver Lake location.
Your help is greatly appreciated. Thank you!

Once accepted into the program, individuals are placed in a training site in or near their community, where they gain on the job experience while working 20-21 hours/week at $8/hour.
We also help with skill assessments, computer training, resumes, cover letters, job search, etc.
The goal is that through the training and job search assistance we gain help older adults gain good jobs in or around their communities.
