Village Maintenance would like to remind everyone that the only
things accepted at the burn pile are trees, branches, and
unfinished lumber. No leaves or garbage please. This could
make us lose our permit with the state, and there no longer
would be a burn pile.

NEWS FROM 100 YEARS AGO
Friday, 4-2-1915, The Otoe Union:
"J.M. Morgan attended the conference of assessors at
Nebraska City Monday and will call in a few days to see how
poor you are." The barn of E.L. Busch, 3 miles east of Unadilla,
burned to the ground. All the livestock was saved except one
calf. There were some very interesting bills introduced in
the Nebraska Legislature: among them one compelling
the National Guard to do 90 days work each year on the roads
and bridges of the state, and one prohibiting free lunches.

FARCE OF NATURE
The final show of the winter season at Kountze Memorial Theatre in Mahoney State Park is "Farce of Nature" by Jones, Hope, and Wooten.
It is a Southern-fried farce depicting one day at the struggling Reel'em Inn fishing lodge where a lone guest is being housed as part of the government's witness protection program. The mobster he's hiding from and his sexy wife, who is quite taken with the lodge owner's son show up. The witness tries to disguise himself and hilarity ensues. An absent-minding gun toting maid, wild animal noises, and run for your life humor keep the show moving. Romance among the couples, some of which is created by hypnotic suggestion, floods the stage and is sure to win you over - hook, line, and sinker.
Show dates: March 13,14,15,20,21,22,27,28,29, April 4,10,11,12
Show times: Fri. & Sat. 7:30 p.m. Sun. 2:00 p.m.
Tickets: $8.00 - $10.00
PARK ENTRY PERMIT REQUIRED
Front: Brandy Palatas, Kevin Colbert
Middle: Shari Hoefker, John Bell, Jim Knierim, Scott Seeloff, Brenna Thompson

Greenblatt & Seay's Schoolhouse Performance Series features championship fiddler/composer, Deborah Greenblatt, in "Fiddle Fables", on Sunday, April 12, at 2:30 PM, in the Old Avoca, Nebraska Schoolhouse.
With the help of her fabulous five-string fiddle Deborah Greenblatt explores some of the trials, tribulations, and lessons that fiddlers often have in common. There is advice for the beginner (“It Starts With Your Feet”), advice for the fiddler’s families (“Have Mercy”), for the growing fiddler (“Shopping For a Fiddle Blues”), for the brave fiddler (“I’m Gonna Fiddle In a Contest”), as well as the fiddler who plays the viola (“Out of Fiddle, Out of My Mind”). There are also inspiring stories of real-life fiddlers (“Cactus Pete”), teachers (“Alice Johnson’s Jig”), and students (“Mary Ann the Fiddler”).
The concert will be downstairs, followed by light refreshments, and a chance to chat and jam with Greenblatt & Seay. Avoca is in southern Cass County, Nebraska, on the 13 C Spur, one mile south of Highway 34.
Admission is $10.00 for adults, $5.00 for students and senior citizens, and $1.00 for children. Seating is limited.For more information, write to Greenblatt & Seay, The Old Schoolhouse, P.O. Box 671, Avoca, Nebraska, 68307, or call 402-275-3221, or e-mail them at
