Murdock Nebraska News - August 10, 2022
Welcome to Murdock
CASS COUNTY FAIR WEEK
It's the time of year everyone looks forward to, and I am not an exception. I will be taking photos of local entries, and visitors who stop by my Tea Toad.
I am located between the 4-H office and the Open Air Auditorium. Stop by and say HELLO!!
Make sure to send in your memories of the fair and I will share them for the rest of this month.
Murdock Historical Museum
The Murdock Museum is a wonderful trip to the past. It's the little things, the details of everyday life that bring back memories.
Neitzels Hardware store. Back when Murdock was a thriving metropolis, okay maybe not that big, but we did have a hardware store, a grocery store, a barber, and a car dealership (I think)
Can anyone tell me more about the hardware store? Any stories you may have heard, items you may have purchased, special memories. Just to fill in the blanks and give some life to Mr. Neitzels two dimensional cutout.
Once a week I am going to highlight a photo of the museum and maybe play some trivia, or give a little-known fact about our town.

NEBRASKA FCCLA MEMBERS RECOGNIZED WITH SUCCESS AT NATIONAL LEADERSHIP CONFERENCE
More than 7,000 Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA) student members, advisers, and guests gathered at the San Diego Convention Center, June 29- July 3 to participate in the annual National Leadership Conference (NLC). The conference provided members opportunities for listening to inspiring speakers, attending youth workshops, competing on the national level, and networking with other youth leaders.
The theme of this year’s conference was “Make It Count,” which inspired attendees to share how they make it count while exploring career opportunities, developing leadership skills, and growing personally while making a difference in their families and communities. “We are thrilled to have an attendance of over 7,000 members, advisers, corporate partners, and guests who are committed to discovering the unlimited possibilities available through FCCLA.
The relationships and skills developed during this conference have inspired students to make a difference in their own communities and to make every moment count,” said Sandy Spavone, Executive Director of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America.
In addition to the many learning and networking experiences offered at the conference, more than 30 Family and Consumer Sciences related competitive events, also known as STAR (Students Taking Action with Recognition) Events. STAR Events aim to support student development of knowledge and skills by enhancing the classroom experience and career pathway initiatives by equipping students with employable skills and industry insights needed to thrive in the 21st century.
FCCLA members choose what STAR Event they would like to compete in with events ranging from Early Childhood Education, Entrepreneurship, and Sports Nutrition to Fashion Design, Job Interview, and Culinary Arts. STAR Events are competitive events in which members are recognized for their proficiency and achievement in chapter and individual projects, leadership skills, and career preparation. Of the 3,900 competitors, Nebraska had 185 participants who came home with 79 Gold medals, 95 Silver medals, and 11 Bronze medals. There were 57 Top Ten award-winning events.
Elmwood Murdock FCCLA member, Harrison Koehn, competed at the conference in the STAR event, Teach and Train. Harrison received a gold medal and 11th place overall in Level 2 Teach and Train. This is Harrison’s second time competing at the national level. In 2020 he also competed virtually in level 1 Teach and Train.
Michael Hynes of the Elmwood Murdock chapter also attended the conference to learn more about FCCLA and develop leadership skills. He did not compete at this conference.
