Excitement in the Neighborhood
Jennifer Jordan had a tree cut down in her backyard Saturday.
Friends and neighbors gathered to watch the man slowly dismantle the tree.
He was a daredevil and clearly loves his job.
Jordan Petersen and Kerry Keil take a break from shingling Kerry's roof
to appreciate the effort that went into ensuring no branches fell on the
Jordyn Campbell didn't like the chainsaw.
The hard work is done for the lumberjack but is just beginning for the roofers.
Who was that masked man? Didn't get the name but he was impressive!
When the cottonwood fell it shook the ground. The tree smelled really bad.
Around the corner from the tree falling was the Don Sheard auction.
We had a big day watching the tree falling, the auction and visiting

"Unnecessary Farce" Is a Necessary Experience
Manley, NE [September 30, 2010]- On October 15, the Lofte Community Theatre in Manley will continue its tradition of fast-paced comedy productions by opening Paul Slade's hilarious "Unnecessary Farce."
Written in 2002, the script is modern and very witty. The story takes place in two adjoining hotel rooms. In one room, two rookie cops prepare to bust their town's mayor for embezzlement. With the help of a love-starved woman accountant and a video camera, they set-up a sting in the adjoining room. However, their simple plan soon goes haywire. The accountant keeps taking off her clothes. The mayor's security guard is overly protective. A mysterious Scottish hitman appears, but is brogue is so thick no one can understand his instructions.
The production is directed by Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water. The colorful ensemble cast includes Kyle Lorenz of Lincoln, Anne Pope of Eagle, Anna Strobel and Ken Patry of Omaha, Kevin and Dawn Holdorf of Manley and Joshua Smith of La Vista.
Performance dates are October 15-17, 22-24 and 28-31. Curtain times are 7:30pm on Thursday-Saturday and 2pm matinees on Sundays. General admission tickets are $16. Reservations can be made by calling the Lofte ticket office at (402) 234-2553.
