GREAT IDEA for the MURDOCK PLAYGROUND!
It's been many many years since the playground set was built by the school. Over 25 years actually. There is grant money to build new parks in our communities.
Who thinks this would be a fit?
LINCOLN, Neb. — Grant money is available for recreation facilities hoping to add things like ballfields, splash pads and picnicking areas across Nebraska.
The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is accepting grant applications for parks and other outdoor recreation facilities and amenities promoting outdoor recreation.
The grants are funded by the Land and Water Conservation Fund, a program administered by the National Park Service for outdoor recreation projects. Eligible projects include, but are not limited to, ballfields, soccer fields, swimming pools, picnicking facilities, playgrounds, pool renovations, splash pads, park acquisitions and development, and park-related support facilities.
All projects must encourage outdoor recreation. Project sponsors must be a political subdivision, such as cities, county governments or Natural Resource Districts. The LWCF provides reimbursable matching grants for up to 50 percent of the project costs.
The LWCF was established by Congress in 1964 to ensure access to outdoor recreation resources for present and future generations and to provide money to governments to purchase land, water, and wetlands to benefit all. The primary source of revenue for the LWCF is from federal oil and gas leases on the Outer Continental Shelf.
Grant applications must be submitted by Sept. 7, 2018. Information and application materials are available at outdoornebraska.gov/lwcf.
There is a wealth of information on the new Elmwood-Murdock website. It is updated on a daily basis by various teachers and department heads.

It's Not Too Soon to Think About the County Fair
2018 Cass County Fair books will be available in May, but start thinking about the Special Contests entries now. We have the BEST County Fair in the State, hands down.
Not only is it a totally free fair, but there is something for everyone.
You just can't do and see everything. Start practicing your appetizers, snickerdoodle cookies, pumpkin pies now. It's a lot of fun to sit and watch the judging in the Open Class Building and the crowd gets bigger and bigger every year.

Work to Begin on N-63 Alvo North Realignment
March 15, 2018 (Lincoln, Neb.) — Weather permitting, work is scheduled to continue the week of March 19 on N-63, between Alvo and I-80, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation.
Knife River, LLC of Sioux City, Iowa has the $11,758,926 contract. Work will include realignment of N‑63, culverts and box culverts, and wetland mitigation. This will be the second of two phases of work.
During this phase, N-63 will be closed to traffic from Reference Post 4+20 (Alvo) to Reference Post 9+68 (Church Road). A marked detour will be in place along I-80 to N-66 to N-50 to US-34 for southbound traffic and along US-34 to N-50 to N-66 to I-80 for northbound traffic. This portion of the project is anticipated to be completed in November 2018.
The Department’s project manager is Jesse De Los Santos of Lincoln. Motorists are reminded to drive cautiously through work zones and along detours.

Starting at 5 pm, the String Beans will take the stage. Based out of Lincoln, Nebraska, the String Beans perform a wide variety of family-friendly songs about all the things kids love: animals, cartoons, food, etc. Since debuting in 2004, the String Beans have released 10 albums and have appeared at numerous festivals, concerts, and regional television programs.

[May 9, 2018] - The Lofte Community Theatre will be holding open auditions for its Summer Children’s Theatre event with Missoula Children’s Theatre on Monday, June 11 at 10am. This year’s production is, “Blackbeard the Pirate.”
This is a week-long residency for all children who will be entering first through seventh grade. Participation is completely free to all children. This program is designed to build confidence and friendships. During auditions, children will be asked to stand in a big circle on the Lofte’s stage while two directors instruct them to sing out loud and recite simple dialogue, either alone or in a small group. The audition process will take approximately two hours. At noon, approximately 60 parts will be assigned and schedules handed out for that week’s rehearsals. There is no guarantee that everyone will get a part.
All rehearsals will take place at the Lofte between 10am and 2:30pm through June 15. Actors are required to be on time attend all of their practices during the week. The Lofte reminds parents to pack your child a sack lunch every day (including audition day) as little ones do work up an appetite!
