2019 12 04 Pearl Harbor 1941 

Pearl Harbor Day, is observed in the United States on December 7, each year, to honor and remember the 2,403 citizens of the United States who were killed in the Japanese surprise attack on Pearl Harbor in Hawaii on that day in 1941.

In 1994, the United States Congress, designated December 7 of each year as National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.  President Bill Clinton issued a proclamation declaring December 7 that same year the first National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.  Although not a federal holiday, it's an important day to commemorate.  

Take a minute this Saturday, to remember and talk to your kids about Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day.

ARM YOURSELF with the FACTS
(By Patricia Zeigler)

The upcoming 2020 U.S. presidential elections are quickly approaching. November 2020 isn't all that far off.  If you are not yet registered to vote, now is the time. Cass County, NE residents can find registration information here: http://www.cassne.org/election.html


It's also time to do some serious research on ALL the candidates. Please do NOT get your information from social media, friends and acquaintances. Why would you choose to vote based on what you’ve heard ‘commentators’ say on TV and social media? ‘Commentators’ are paid a lot of money to often distort the truth and offer their own opinions. While it can, at times, be entertaining, many times, their point of view is far different from that of trained journalists and experts who are supposed to be reporting the facts.


Get your useful, factual information directly from the source to help you make your ultimate decisions. You have the ability to do the research and the right to form your own opinions. Besides having the ability to vote being a great privilege, it is also your duty to vote knowing all the facts available to you.


Go to the candidate's own official website where they each, along with their own staff, publish their own plans, information and ideas for our future. You can sign-up to receive their emails, volunteer to help with their campaign and donate there, too, if you wish. Then, when you see and hear them on TV, compare that to what you read and hear on his or her own webpages.
Here’s the website for the Federal Election Commission, https://www.fec.gov/, so you can see how the campaign finance process works, along with other useful information. Type in your zip code and you can see who’s running for office in your local area.

As of 2019-12-03, the current presidential candidates and their websites are:

2018 09 19 backpack

The Conestoga Backpack Pantry serves the Murray, Nehawka, Union and Beaver Lake areas in southeast Nebraska, although we will not turn away anyone in need. Food packs are placed in the childrens' locker at school to take home on the weekends, helping to sustain them until returning to school the following week.

Your kind donation of non-perishable food items can be made at Cornerstone Bank in Murray during business hours, Monday-Friday: 8:00 am-4:00 pm. We can also pick up your items, if you cannot drop them off. Call Jill at 402-660-3543 to make arrangements.

Some ideas are cereal, juice boxes, granola bars, cereal bars, pancake mix, peanut butter, jelly, tuna or chicken salad packs, fruit cups, raisins, cheese and cracker snacks, macaroni and cheese cups, etc. Keep in mind that some of the children are very young and are possibly 'preparing' their own meals. Easy to open containers are a good option for little hands.

Each time you shop, just pick up one thing and set it aside and after a few weeks, drop off your bag of items at the bank or church.

Thank you!

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among men and women in the United States. An estimated 108,000 new cases will be diagnosed each year. Regular colorectal cancer screenings can detect colorectal cancer early when the chances for cure are best. Because of this, the Sarpy/Cass Health Department is offering free fecal occult blood test (FOBT) home screening kits to both men and women between the ages of 50 and 74 years.

The screening kits are available at the Health Department’s office at 701 Olson Drive, Suite 101, Papillion, Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Call (402) 537-6969 for more information.
