What is your GOOD News? 

Yes, there is GOOD news that is coming out of this COVID-19 event. People are reconnecting with family. People are playing games, getting creative and learning to appreciate what they took for granted. We have all slowed down, maybe you have started a new hobby, spent time improving a talent, or sharing your talent through Facebook Live. 

Easter Egg Hunts

The physical Easter Egg Hunts have been postponed, but that doesn't mean we still can't have a DRIVE-By Easter Egg hunt. Hang Plastic Easter Eggs on your trees. Drive the kids around, or take a walk down the street in the fresh air and see how many Easter Eggs you can find. tree 4099171 640

In the past week, people have volunteered to shop for those who need to stay at home due to age or are immune suppressed. Many restaurant businesses are adapting and changing their business model to deliver or offer curbside service. In response, customers are going out of their way to support their efforts. In fact, last Friday The Quonset was sold out of the Fish Special when I called. 

After this, when the travel restrictions are lifted we will that more grateful every time we eat at a local restaurant, attend communion

Uncovered Murdock History

Thank you to John Guehlstorff for the Murdock historical and lifestyle photographs.

Barnstormer Plane 011410

This must of been quite the sight when this Bi-plane landed in Grandpas field. Does anyone remember when this happened and the story behind it?

John's Grandpa (Ed) was an avid photographer. He would take photos of any event that went on around Murdock. From family reunions to everyday happenings. When he passed his grandson (John E Guelstorff III) inherited his camera along with his photo processing equipment and all of his negatives.  Recently he found some undeveloped negatives of Murdock

Stay tuned in future weeks for more peeks into Murdock history

Take It Or Leave It Pantry

You may have forgotten about the Elmwood Take-it-or-Leave food pantry, but it is even more important than ever. Many in our community are going to have children at home who have depended on school lunches and the BackPack program for weekend supplemental nutrition. 

The free pantry is here to serve our community. It is for neighbors helping neighbors.

Simple Numbers:

1 in 5 Nebraska people that receive their Coronavirus Check next week is fortunate enough to not have any real pressing need. Many of these people want and would help small businesses, but there is no obvious (and non offensive) to invest and support. There is a better that 3 times benefit to the Community, for every dollar invested in the Survival of the Small Business Community. Small Business Owners, with shuttered Doors need cash now - to retain critical employees, pay rent and cling to their customers. With that in Mind: We Launched CassLocal.com We need all Small Cass, Sarpy and Otoe Businesses to add their information here We really Encourage all small businesses to get a Square acct - so the can offer Gift Cards ( Video ) and/or a PayPal Donate Acct Gift Cards may seem unusual for a small mechanic or plumbing firm, but the idea is simple: Critical Cash injection now, wonderful goods and services later. 

Any Business, with a Square, or PayPal acct - can offer it in their CassLocal.com listing and the navigation of the site will change as the numbers, and kinds of businesses develop.

Bottom Line, is we need Businesses to Join Here - and Churches / Non Profit Organizations Here

Nebraska helping Nebraska - we do not have to wait for the Federal Government, lets just Get"R" Done!
