    The Last Supper Pageant will once again be presented during Holy Week and the Trinity United Methodist Church. Written by Ernest K. Emurieian, the play depicts the scene of the Last Supper painting by Leonardo da Vinci done in 1491 in a convent in Milan, Italy. Leonardo's painting depicted the moment during the Last Supper just after Jesus announced "One of you will betray me" and continues from that moment with the actors frozen in their poses and coming to life, one at a time, to speak about t...

    Residents in our community are asked to choose their natural gas provider during the selection period, which begins on Friday, April 15, 2016 and ends on Thursday, April 28, 2016 for the Nebraska Choice Gas program.

    Hello, I am Larry Nelson, a volunteer interviewer for the Veterans History Project.

    Tonia Copeland|Mar 17, 2016

    Following graduation I had the opportunity to move to several cities in Colorado, Wyoming, Arizona, Minnesota and Nevada. These moves happened every few months, and in preparation I would call the local Chamber of Commerce to learn as much as possible about the next town we would be calling home. The Chamber gave me information on rentals, hotels, trailer parks, businesses, and the general feel of the community. I was able to make contact with some of the most active and involved people in the town before I ever entered it, and that enabled me...
