“Growing Together”
April 1, 2009


Wednesday, April 1 st

Raeanna Jordan is selling Pogo cards to raise funds to go towards a Camp Kataki horse camp.  They cost $20 and can be used at Lincoln businesses to get discounts.  If you are in Lincoln quite a bit it can pay for itself several times.  She will be selling them until Saturday April 4th and if anyone is interested they can email her at   or call her at 402-297-3128.

Do you have a mommy pouch?

Have you had at least one baby, at least one cesarean section, or

abdominal surgery? Have you tried doing crunches and sit-ups with little to no result?

Come and learn a simple set of exercises specifically designed for women like you. Anyone can get results whether they are new moms or post menopausal.

I can help you put your abs back together! This is an abdominal exercise class for all ages of women and the technique has been proven to reduce recurring low back pain, incontinence, and midline pouchiness.  I will teach the basic exercise and we will go through the 15 minute workout.  Attendees will receive a book and a splint.  

Dr. Sally K. Hufstader will be teaching this class based on the

Tupler Technique outlined in Julie Tupler's book “Lose Your

Mummy Tummy”.

April 4th 8:30 a.m. -9:30 a.m. at the Flying Wheels in Elmwood

My Grandma Used to Eat Livers, Kidneys and Tripe… Yuck!

Ever wonder why she lived to be 100? Come and learn why these nutritionally dense foods do more to promote health than just provide a lot of vitamins and minerals.

Understanding how to apply this knowledge could save your life.

All seminars are being held at the Elmwood Public Library.

The Badger Has a No Good Really Bad Day

Sorry the Badger can't talk right now, he's a little tied up.

Mr. Badger is alive and just hanging around. He's really crabby, too. I wouldn't want to be the one to cut him loose!

The Magic of Prom Night

The Junior/Senior Prom was Saturday night. Millie was able to go because she was invited by her boyfriend, Garyn, who is a Junior. This is the first time the Prom/Post Prom Committees have arranged for the events to be at the same facility. They worked very hard on this and the kids had a great time.

The kids all met at the high school Saturday afternoon dressed to the hilt! The parents waited outside…in the frigid wind…and the kids came out walking down the red carpet to the limousines. As they reached the cars they stopped and turned so we could take their pictures. Then they climbed in…it took four limos to hold them all…and took off for Dave and Busters in Omaha. The limos took them on a cruise through Elmwood then on to Omaha. They cruised through the Old Market before stopping at the main event. The kids had dinner and danced until midnight. Then they changed their clothes and got comfortable so they could play! Dave and Busters is like a Chucky Cheese for teenagers! After playing all night they loaded up on the school bus and came home. Millie made it home around 5:00 and slept almost all day. Oh, to be a kid again!

The D.A.R.E. Skate brings Conestoga and Weeping Water kids out

Deputy Wes Tuttle teaches the D.A.R.E. program to kids in Cass County. D.A.R.E. stands for Drug Abuse Resistance Education. The kids learn how to stay away from drugs. At the end of the program the kids come to the rink to celebrate. Deputy Tuttle and Sheriff Bill Brueggemann are on hand to enjoy the kids' company and skate with them.

Deputy Tuttle and Sheriff Bill sign the D.A.R.E. shirt. All the kids sign it and we hang it on the wall.

Sunday was a day for tears of goodbye for an old friend and tears of joy for a new one.

Patty Wolcott, long time friend and resident of many in Elmwood passed away last week. Her memorial service was Sunday afternoon. Patty will be missed for her caring ways, her spirit, and her dedication to her family and friends.

Sunday also happened to be the time for a baby shower for Jennifer and Nathan Brettmann. Their baby is expected to arrive within the next couple of weeks.

The circle of life is saying goodbye to those we cherish as we open our hearts to new friends.

Jennifer Brettmann soon to be mom!

Jennifer with her mother and mother-in-law.

Jennifer picks the winner of the “Who can make the best baby out of Play-dough game”. Of course she picked the one of the sleeping baby covered with a blanket of dough. The best baby is a sleeping baby!

Dear Abby,

I recently read your column advising grandparents to practice "tough love" on misbehaving grandchildren whose own parents let them run wild.  I have followed your advice, and enclose a picture demonstrating my technique when my grandson just won't behave while I'm babysitting for his parents. They have told me NOT to spank him, so I just take him for a ride, and he usually calms down afterward.

Sign me,

Tough Love Grandma


Jordyn goes for quite the ride herself!
