Cass County Court Appointed Special Advocate (CASA) program received a huge
round of support from the Cass County community at large on April 22, 2016. The
CASA Uncorked Wine and Beer tasting event was held at Slattery Vintage Estates in
Nehawka, NE.
The fundraiser committee was chaired by Nikki Biesterfeld and Michelle Group. It was

attended the “CASA Uncorked” event which generated more than $6500 profit from
community sponsorships, ticket sales and donations to the organization. All proceeds
from this event, benefit the Cass County CASA Program, a donor-supported volunteer
organization whose mission is to offer court-approved volunteer advocacy for abused
and neglected children. Cass County CASA I a 501©3 organization funded by public

Cass County CASA works with children, whom are abused, neglected and often find
themselves lost in the court system. CASA advocates are appointed by the Judge. The
advocates build a relationship with a child and speak on the child’s behalf as they make
recommendations to the court. The following snippet sums up what CASA is really
about: “I am for the child who’s had seven addresses in a single year. Because
she is in foster care. Because her Father abused her. Because her Mother could
not believe her. That is the child I am for. Because if I am, she will be half as likely
to languish in foster care, and that much more likely to find a safe, permanent
home. I am a volunteer child Advocate.”
Since April 2015, 16 volunteers and two staff have advocated for 48 children. Six
children have been adopted and 15 children have been reunified with their parents. 26
more children cases have been opened. Through the efforts of its volunteers, Cass
County CASA has saved the county approximately $22,150.

Lofte Community Theatre

 “The Man Who Came to Dinner” at Lofte Theatre

Manley, NE [May 19, 2017] - The Lofte's second production of the year takes us back to small-town Ohio in the 1930s.  Sheridan Whiteside ("Sherry" to his friends) is a famously outlandish New York City radio personality who has been invited to dine at the home of the well-to-do Stanley family.  But disaster strikes before he enters the house.  Whiteside slips on the ice and injures his hip!  

What started out as a one-night event soon turns into a month-long convalescence.  Confined to the house, Sherry drives his hosts mad by viciously insulting them, monopolizing their house, running up large phone bills, and receiving many bizarre guests, including paroled convicts.  
This classic American script has enjoyed several revivals on Broadway and the London stage and was made into a feature film in 1942 starring Bette Davis, Jimmy Durante and Monty Woolly.   
Ken Snyder of Elmwood is playing the irascible Sheridan Whiteside.  He is joined on stage by Brenda Jones (Louisville) and Tim Sorensen (Elmwood) playing his hosts, Mr. and Mrs. Stanley.  Rosalie Duffy (Lincoln) and Doug Rothgeb (Omaha) play the star-crossed Maggie Cutler and Bert Jefferson. Rounding out the cast are Dustin Reckling (Louisville), Jean Wymore (Syracuse), Jessica and Rita McKinney, Ken Patry and Trish Miller (Omaha), Cheryl and Will Jones (Manley), Tom Lucas (Papillion), Jeff Johnston (Elmwood), Mike Brown (Firth), Jim Skrobo (Elkhorn), Aubree Sweeney and Millard Carnes (Plattsmouth),  Guillermo Rosas (La Vista), Zeke Rouse (Murray), Brenna Thompson, Nick Roth (Lincoln), John Bell and Dan Roberg (Omaha) and Shawn Reynolds (Bellevue).  The production is directed by Kevin Colbert.
"The Man Who Came to Dinner" runs June 2-4 and 8-11.  Thursday, Friday and Saturday performances are at 7pm.  Sunday performances begin at 2pm.  Those interested in tickets may call the box office at 402-234-2553 or visit Lofte.org for online purchasing.  All seats are reserved and ticket price is $19.
