A month from now the citizens of Elmwood will go to the polls and vote for three new Village Board members. A lot of you will be voting by absentee ballot so you may have already received it.
Two people have filed to run for office so their names will be on the ballot…one incumbent, Miki Bruns, and one former Village Board member who has a passion to serve again, Pat Wray. Brandon Collins and I have opted not to run again. I plan to continue working on projects that we have started though.
One person that I know of has stepped up to be a write-in candidate. Rebecca (Becky) Kicak, has been involved with many Village projects and committees in Elmwood in the last few years.
She has attended board meetings and is interested in serving on the Village Board. I would encourage you to vote for Becky, Miki, and Pat. They have the village’s best interests in mind.
We currently have two vacancies on the Planning Commission. The Planning Commission is supposed to have 5 members who either live in Elmwood or within the outer jurisdiction of Elmwood.
The planning commission is responsible for the comprehensive plan; keeping it up to date, implementing projects to fulfill the plan, and keeping the village in line with the planning and zoning regulations. They have just begun a comprehensive plan overhaul which you will be hearing more about in the near future. It is an exciting time to be on the planning commission.
If you are a positive person and like a challenge and are interested in serving your community consider being a write-in candidate for Village Board. Consider serving on the Planning Commission. Consider volunteering for the projects that are happening now. No, it won’t be easy. But it will be worth it. One person can make a difference and together we can make a change.
If not you…then who do you want to be responsible for making decisions that are going to affect you, your neighbors, and your community? Choose wisely, my friends. Choose wisely.

Here’s where we need your help. Check your books at home.
Do you have one of the following titles in GOOD to LIKE NEW condition and are you willing to donate it to the library? Or, if you are so inclined, could you purchase the title from a local bookstore and gift it to the library? We would be VERY grateful!

What town celebrates and embraces Halloween? Murdock
Seriously Murdock decorates for Halloween better than anyone and it's worth it to take a drive not only through Main Street and to see the scarecrows but also all the other fall and Halloween decorations, pumpkins and inflatables.
Talented Jackie Barnes painted the wonderful scarecrow faces and Linda Glantz “dressed them” and put them in place. Generous Lucas Stock donated cornstalks and pumpkins again the year. Kristi McHugh set the small scarecrows in the flower planters downtown as well as placing some of the pumpkins.
Ken Glantz joined Linda in attaching the cornstalks and placing pumpkins around. Laura Rikli and Kyler put their scarecrow in a planter. Dan Highfield decorated the north end of town with scarecrows and his big jack-o-lanterns. Watch for his place on Halloween night as I hear that there will be some special decorations.
We are waiting for those special big balloon decorations in the south part of town, Lee.
So come one, come all to Murdock to enjoy our autumn event!
Work on N-63 Alvo North Realignment
March 15, 2018 (Lincoln, Neb.) — Weather permitting, work is scheduled to continue the week of March 19 on N-63, between Alvo and I-80, according to the Nebraska Department of Transportation.
Knife River, LLC of Sioux City, Iowa has the $11,758,926 contract. Work will include realignment of N‑63, culverts and box culverts, and wetland mitigation. This will be the second of two phases of work.
During this phase, N-63 will be closed to traffic from Reference Post 4+20 (Alvo) to Reference Post 9+68 (Church Road). A marked detour will be in place along I-80 to N-66 to N-50 to US-34 for southbound traffic and along US-34 to N-50 to N-66 to I-80 for northbound traffic. This portion of the project is anticipated to be completed in November 2018.
The Department’s project manager is Jesse De Los Santos of Lincoln. Motorists are reminded to drive cautiously through work zones and along detours.
