The City of Weeping Water has been chosen as one of three communities to receive a federal funded grant - Nebraska Department of Roads Safe Routes to School.
This grant is for communities to encourage and better enable children to walk and bike safely to school. The program is focused on promoting physical activity and improving health, making routes to school safer and reducing traffic congestion around schools by encouraging children to walk or ride bicycles.
This program is 100% funded by the federal government and requires no matching funds by local entities. The funds, benefiting elementary and middle school students, are for infrastructure improvements including sidewalk and street-crossing improvements, traffic diversion and bicycle facilities.
The City of Weeping Water was awarded $935,497. The grant will be used for a pedestrian bridge over the creek, sidewalk improvements, and pedestrian crossing upgrades.

"Dearly Beloved" Opens Lofte's 38th Season
The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley announces the opening of "Dearly Beloved" on their main stage on May 24th. Frankie has almost made herself sick with the elaborate preparations for her daughter's antebellum wedding, and the rumor mill in little Fayro, Texas is working overtime. Frankie and her sisters are no strangers to gossip. They had a scandalous breakup of their almost-famous gospel trio, "The Sermonettes."
Despite Frankie's conversations with her dead mother, Honey Raye's habit of racing to the altar time after time, and Twink's own struggle to get her boyfriend of 15 years down the aisle, Frankie is determined to pull off this wedding with elegance and style. However, this is made more difficult when the wedding dinner is turned into a potluck supper sponsored by Clovis Sanford's House of Meat and gold lame gowns are worn to the church!
Directed by Kevin Colbert, the cast stars Chris Werger of Eagle; Alyssa Dipaolo of Lincoln, Shari Hoelker, Doug Rothgeb and Randy Wallace of Omaha, Keri Hogue of Elmwood; Wendy Allen, Pat Billings, Bret Tincher and Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth and Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water.
Production dates for the show are May 30, 31 and June 1 and 6-8. Curtain times are 7:30pm except for Sundays which are 2pm matinees. Single show tickets are $19, but you can buy a season pass for $65 until June 8. The season pass entitles one person admission to all five regular season shows in 2014. Call the Lofte box office at 402-234-2553 or purchase online at www.Lofte.com.
