The String Beans are coming back!!
This will be EPIC!!! For those who don't know who the String Beans are...like my brother...they are not the Wiggles.
Here is the info from their website:
"From pop and country to rap and rock n’ roll, The String Beans perform a wide variety of original, family-friendly songs about all the things kids love: animals, cartoons, food, science, sports and lots more!
Each show is hilarious, inclusive and spontaneous, and each catchy tune is designed to get every audience dancing and singing along!
Since forming in 2004, The String Beans have released 10 albums, appeared on dozens of radio and television programs, and delighted thousands of fans, becoming Nebraska’s favorite entertainers for pre-school through elementary-aged audiences, not to mention parents, teachers, and communities.
The String Beans perform at fairs, festivals, libraries, schools, churches, museums, zoos and more! In their hometown of Lincoln, Nebraska, the “Beans” sold out the Lied Center for Performing Arts and consistently set new attendance records at the Lincoln Children’s Museum’s “Music & Mozzarella” concert series.
The band has also performed for the Governor’s Arts Awards Ceremony and recently completed a tour of the southeast United States with performances in Missouri, Georgia, Tennessee, and Florida."

Miss Kunz taught First Grade through Third Grade for more years than I could then remember. She taught four of the five Parish children.
Why I Love the Letter g - Part 8
The combined first through third grades had what was known as a rhythm band. The instruments included sticks. These were about a half-inch or so in diameter and about eight inches long. Half of the stick was smooth and the other half had closely spaced grooves cut into the wood. The sticks could be tapped to give a sharp clacking sound or rubbed giving a longer sound something like a stick being dragged along a picket fence only not as loud.
Sand blocks were made from blocks of pine about four inches long with sandpaper covering the bottom face. These were played by rubbing a pair of blocks together. The triangle was a coveted instrument since there was only one of them and it produced an actual musical note. Last but not least were the symbols. That’s what I played. What did we learn playing in this band? We learned rhythm, timing, teamwork, paying attention and following directions and we had a lot of fun doing it.
It was in preparing for a performance by our band that I had one of my earliest disappointments.
The band was to have a student leader. Oh, how I wanted to be that leader. He would wear a tall bandmasters hat, a spiffy jacket and wield a baton. Did I get chosen for that? No. John Hall would be introduced as the Maestro and I was to introduce him. Miss Kunz was into details and the introduction had to be done just so. I was to say the following: “And now, introducing (Left arm stretched out and slightly elevated) Maestro John Hall! “
Here is one of those film clips. I am standing at the front of the classroom. Miss Kunz is seated at a student desk right in front of me and she coaches me again and again until I have just the right tone of voice, the right volume, the right timing the right gestures. She kept me at it again and again until I had it repeatedly perfect.
All the time I could see, in my mind’s eye, John Hall in his uniform strutting to center stage while I bowed out. Miss Kunz wasn’t humiliating me. I was getting that job done all by myself. Jealousy is very poisonous. Another character building opportunity lost. Etiquette and good form were high on Miss Kunz list.

Colorectal cancer is the third most common cancer and the second leading cause of cancer-related deaths among men and women in the United States. An estimated 108,000 new cases will be diagnosed each year. Regular colorectal cancer screenings can detect colorectal cancer early when the chances for cure are best.
Because of this, the Sarpy/Cass Health Department is offering free fecal occult blood test (FOBT) home screening kits to both men and women between the ages of 50 and 74 years.
The screening kits are available at the Health Department’s office at 701 Olson Drive, Suite 101, Papillion, Monday-Friday 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Call (402) 537-6969 for more information.
