An original Living Last Supper will be presented Holy Thursday, April 1, 2010, at First Congregational Church at 7:30 p.m.  The original script, written by Pastor Mary McQueen, uses three readers (one you regularly see at Loft Theater productions,)  and depicts Jesus actually washing the feet of the disciples.  As each disciple

enters,  the readers tell the story of their calling to be a disciple and their life after Jesus is crucified.

 Everyone is welcome.

Otoe County Rural Schools Reunion

When: Saturday, April 10 2010
Event Type:  
Where: Harmony School
6265 'Q' Road
Nebraska City, NE 68410
Description: On April 10th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm, the Otoe County Genealogical Society will host its 1st Annual Otoe County Rural Schools Reunion at Harmony School at 6265 'Q' Road, which is located 8 miles south of Nebraska City on Highway 75, and ½ mile west on ‘Q’ road. Harmony School is a rural schoolhouse that was built in 1879, and was closed in 1997.  This reunion will include a coffee social and tour of the 130-year old rural schoolhouse. In addition, it will also give visitors a chance to assist our society in identifying numerous unidentified rural schoolhouse photographs from several different school districts throughout the county. The society has come into possession of these prized photographs through their Otoe County Courthouse Clean-up Project, in which these photographs were donated to the society by the Otoe County Clerk’s office, and through other generous donations as well.  So please come join us at Harmony School and help us pay tribute to the outstanding contributions that these rural schoolhouses made in the education of our state’s youth for the past 100 years now!

For Immediate Release:


Some Important Bills Don’t Earn Headlines


March 5, 2010, Lincoln Only a few of the bills that are introduced in the Legislature generate media coverage. This means that the majority of Nebraskans seldom, if ever, hear about most of the new laws that are enacted. Some of the laws in question have little direct impact on the lives of our citizens, but others create changes that deserve to be brought to the attention of everyone in our state.


LB 216 was passed last month to allow a family member injured in a car accident, in which a relative was driving, to have their medical expenses covered by the driver’s auto insurance policy. LB 216 eliminated the “guest statute” which protected drivers from liability for injuries to passengers if they were family members, unless the driver committed gross negligence or was under the influence of alcohol.


Several constituents voiced support for a bill to move back the eligibility date for children to start kindergarten. Under LB 1006, which is ready for the final round of debate, children would be eligible if they are five years old by July 31st instead of the current cut-off date of October 15th. An exception would be included for children who turn five between August 1 and October 15, if they perform well on a kindergarten assessment tool. These changes would begin in the 2012-13 school year. Under the current cut-off date, teachers reported a wide age range in their classes, with differences as much as 18 months to two and a half years. This age range can mean that some children are mature enough to thrive in today’s academically focused kindergarten classes, and some are not. LB 1006 would create a more even experience for young children as they begin their K-12 education.


A lien is used to provide security to a party who has an interest in a parcel of real property. Once placed on the title to the property, the lien must be paid before the property can be transferred to another party. This ensures that the lien holder will be paid for their interest in the property. Nebraska’s current law provides rules for establishing and prioritizing liens for condominium homeowners associations, but there are no provisions that address the same procedures for other types of homeowners associations, such as a townhouse owners association or an individual family residence homeowners association. LB 736 would establish provisions for all types of homeowners associations that are identical to those that already exist for condominium homeowners associations. The legislature passed LB 736 in late February. The bill included an emergency clause, so it will become law as soon as it is signed by the governor.


Neighbors would be required to construct and maintain a just proportion of a division fence under LB 667. The term “just proportion” would mean an equitable allocation of the portion of the fence line to be physically built and cared for by each landowner, or in lieu of the actual work, a financial contribution for construction and maintainence made by either landowner. LB 667 would clarify that the fencing standard to which landowners would be held, unless they agree to a different standard, is a wire fence. As defined in our current law, a wire fence is consistent with widely understood and used fence standards.


LB 226 expanded some rights for 18-year-olds. The bill would allow them to enter into contracts or leases, or consent to medical treatment, if a parent or guardian gives consent through a power of attorney. LB 226 is waiting to be signed by the governor. The bill’s emergency clause will allow the new law to take effect immediately and grant to Nebraska’s

18-year-olds new rights that will be consistent with those found in the majority of the other states in this country.


The Nebraska Litter Reduction and Recycling Act was scheduled to end on October 30, 2010. LB 798 will extend the termination date to October 30, 2015. The extension will also extend the litter fee collection used for litter and recycling programs.

  I appreciate the opportunity you have given me to represent District 2 in the Nebraska Legislature.

  Dear Louisvillians,

    MILESTONES are a part of life.  I’m certain if you think about it long enough, you can recall the important MILESTONES in your own life.  These are those special moments and days that are preserved not only with photographs but possess memories that are etched into our minds for a lifetime…stories that can be told and retold for generations to come.     What are the MILESTONES in your life?  
    If I were to guess, most people can recall their first day of school and maybe your first teacher’s name.  Chances are you might recall losing a tooth or hitting your first home run.  Most people remember when they received their first driver’s license (I’m sure the parents do too!).  Graduations are always a memorable day as well.  By the way, this is coming up on May 8, 2010 (less than two months away, for those of you keeping track!).  You might remember your first time away from home, if you attended college or perhaps a trip that you took that was especially impressionable.  Later on in life, you remember your wedding day and the day your children and grandchildren were born.  Hopefully, this trip down memory lane has sparked an interest in recalling memorable MILESTONES in your life.  
    This week, in Louisville, many people are celebrating MILESTONES.  I don’t know about all of them, of course, but I think there are a couple that are worth mentioning.
    First, Mandi and Cory Chubb celebrate the anniversary of their thriving addition to Main Street—the Main Street Café.  Hopefully, you’ve all had a chance to sample the delectable entrees on the menu; they do a fantastic job, and they are a strong asset to our little town of Louisville.  Congratulate them on their MILESTONE and be sure to stop by and check out some of their daily special items.  They’re serving some authentic corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s Day!   
    Second, six young ladies at Louisville High School are embarking on one last leg of a remarkable journey through a spectacular speech season.  They are bound for state speech, and they are excited for this upcoming MILESTONE in their lives.  The hours they have poured into memorizing and writing and preparing their particular speeches have been hours well spent as they are rewarded a berth to the state competition.  Wish them all of the best on this MILESTONE in their lives.  
     Third…well, I’ll leave this one up to you to decide.  What are some of your most recent and/or memorable MILESTONES?  Are any of them worth sharing?  Writing about? Talking about?  What are those moments in your life that are worthy of the title MILESTONE?  
    Here’s hoping memorable MILESTONES occur for you in the month of March, dear Louisvillians.  Have a wonderful week!

Your Louisville Editor,
