THE PIRATES OF PENZANCE
By W. S. Gilbert and Arthur Sullivan
CAST includes local students
Pirate King – Aaron Spracklin of Elmwood, Nebraska
PIRATES/POLICEMEN/MAIDENS - Cale Arent of Murdock, Nebraska
(Hastings, Nebraska) – The Hastings College departments of Theatre and Music will be performing Gilbert and Sullivan’s popular “The Pirates of Penzance” for its 2018 January Term (J-Term) production. This classic comic operetta of fair maidens, wimpy pirates, and overzealous police is fun for the whole family.
In the show, Frederic has spent 20 years of his life indentured to a band of pirates and has been promised he will be released on his 21st birthday. After turning 21, he sets off to find adventure, only to discover that his time of servitude may not be finished.
Performances are Thursday, February 1; Friday, February 2; and Saturday, February 3 at 7:30 p.m. with a final performance February 4 at 2:00 p.m. All performances are in Scott Studio Theatre (806 N. Turner Ave.).

Welcome to a new section of the Elmwood and Murdock weekly news. Senator Rob Clements will be submitting a regular summary of what is happening in the Nebraska Unicameral. If you ever wanted to know how Nebraska is run, how decisions are made he is the one to ask.
By State Senator Rob Clements
The Nebraska Unicameral 2018 Session began January 3.
Bill introduction has ended, but not before another 486 bills and resolutions were introduced. We are also debating many carry-over bills from the 2017 Session.
A $200 million reduction in revenue since the last session will make budget adjustments the primary job of the session. The administration has proposed across the board reductions of 2 percent for the 2018 budget and another 4 percent for 2019. Excluded from these reductions are K-12 spending, Corrections, and Medicaid provider rates.
The Appropriations Committee will be hearing from each agency in February to discuss adjustment requests. It is my belief that we can make the budget adjustments without raising taxes, tightening the belt of government, just like taxpayers have to do with their budgets.
I attended a briefing by the Department of Revenue regarding the 2018 federal income tax changes and the options that the Legislature may use to adjust Nebraska’s tax code to stay revenue neutral.
Keeping Nebraska’s coordination with federal tax law as simple as possible is my goal, while not raising taxes. I am working closely with the Revenue Committee to achieve that goal.
This session I introduced three bills and one resolution.
LB 773 updates the current misdemeanor crime of intimidation by telephone. It would include intimidation done via email, text, or other electronic messages. This will update state law to keep up with changes in technology.
The second bill of mine is LB1019, which would transfer Cass County from the Southeast planning and development region 6 to the Metro region 8. This was brought to me by Cass County officials who believe Cass has more common economic and development connections with the Sarpy and Douglas County Metro area than with the region to the south. Sarpy County officials have also expressed support for this change.
Looking for something to do with the kids during the winter. We have a wonderful "playground" right in our own backyard with Mahoney state park offering ice skating, ice fishing, and indoor birthday parties at the playground. So if your kids are getting cabin fever let them run off some energy in the ball pits and climbing wall and not your furniture.

We have competitive wages & excellent benefits!
