Last Week for the Elmwood Farmers Market

FarmersMarket 092218 1Yes, this is indeed the last week for the Farmers Market in the park for the 2018 season.  Last week there were 6 vendors with everything from farm fresh eggs, cinnamon rolls, fresh local honey to Decorated Wine Bottles (For $1.00)

There was still zucchini to be had, squash and tomatoes. Don't know about you, but my tomatoes didn't do well this year and I'm needing to buy some for more salsa. 

You may learn how to make apple butter, jalapeno jelly, or even squash dinner rolls. Yes, Squash rolls, they are tasty and you can get free samples! I've heard they are even better warm with butter.

EM FarmersMarket 09222018 2

In season apples have turned the bakers into making apple muffins, apple bread, and apple biscotti. Yes, we have biscotti and hot lemongrass tea, or maybe even some fresh made apple hot cider to go with it. What a delicious combination on a cool fall day.

Biscotti is Italian for "twice-baked" and it's the adult version of milk and cookies. Dunk that crispy bread into hot coffee and it instantly becomes a soft yummy tasty treat.

EM FarmersMarket 09222018 1

Why have I emphasized so much on the Farmers Market this year? Besides the fact I'm there every week?

It's because this weekly event has become a gathering place for people to come and visit with others. 

Teresa and Hank come almost every Saturday and it's always fun to play with Hank. He's a Husker fan don't you know? Even though we haven't won a game YET.

FarmersMarket 092218 2

People have visited from all over the country, and WORLD actually including Washington State, Colorado, Chicago, Minneapolis, Cameroon, and Japan. Ok, the last two are exchange student from Elmwood-Murdock, but they count.

This doesn't count the vast number of people who have visited from various places around Nebraska. 

It has also been an opportunity for people to showcase their crafts, skills, and talents. We have metal workers in town, people who make all natural skin care products, beekeepers, and local sustainable farmers.

West Nile Warning

Two local Elmwood residents have been hospitalized recently for West Nile.

This is no joke!

Mosquitoes are out and it's important to use insect repellent.  Symptoms include a high fever, a very severe headache, and stiffness. It may feel like a very bad flu, but WORSE. Both people were in the hospital for a week, so it is a major illness. It can cause encephalitis or meningitis.

One person I spoke to it's something he never wants again and he is still feeling very weak.

Just because it's the end of the month doesn't mean the Quilt show is over.

 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.
