Flaming Idiots
By: Tom Rooney
Carl & Phil know that big money is waiting for people with entrepreneurial spirit and sound business judgment. They have lots of spirit, but little judgment. Their new gourmet health food restaurant flounders, even with their signature drink called the Flaming Idiot. Zippy's, a popular cross town spot, has been crowded ever since Cy Manamalancia, a notrious mobster, was shot in their establishment twenty years ago. What if someone could get murdered in their restaurant? Flaming Idiots is a contemporary farce that won the New American Comedy Festival Award.

Weeping Water Auditorium Renovation Project 
A very positive community project is underway for the City of Weeping Water. We need your financial help to make it possible. The Weeping Water Community Building Foundation is restoring the old building on Main Street that was used as an auditorium for the Cass County Agricultural Society.
The new building would be a multipurpose facility and would include a banquet hall, city offices, and a community center, which will serve as a site for Senior Citizen Meals, community organizational meetings/functions, and will be available for public rental. It is also under consideration that the Public Library be moved to the basement of the new community building.
Several generous donationsfrom numerous citizens and businesses, grant funds, and sales tax revenue for Weeping Water have been some ways the community building project has recieved money. But, there is still a great deal of need to meet the financial obligations. This is a great opportunity to give back to your community in a positive way. All contributors will be recognized.
If you have any questions or would like to recieve a Commemorative Brick Order Form, contact: The Weeping Water Community Building Foundation, P.O. Box 329, Weeping Water, NE 68463 or e-mail at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
