Fourth Annual Money Basics Contest
Financial education for elementary students
ACCESS is pleased to announce its annual Mastering Money Basics competition. This year's theme is "What Can I Do To Earn Money?”
Our contest is specifically designed to focus on several key areas of learning by utilizing: math, reasoning, visualization, creative writing, analytical skills, team work, writing and grammar. These skills are critical for higher learning; both in school and throughout life's journey.
“This isn't just an exercise to memorize something and parrot a response. This program is designed to help the students understand and apply what they learn,” stated Deb Wright, ACCESS Board Member. “The youth of our country will determine our future. By educating them on the value of money and how to manage it properly, maybe, we can influence tomorrow's leaders; teaching them to be personally accountable and more responsible with money.”
Mastering Money Basics is open to Nebraska students in grades K through 5. Schools with winning entries will be awarded cash prizes. Students involved in the winning essay will be acknowledged at their schools. Home schooled children are welcomed.
All entries must be postmarked by February 28, 2015. Winners will be announced on April 15, 2015. For further information about our contest or to get a contest entry form, please visit our website at http://www.MasteringMoneyBasics.org/.

“WRONG WINDOW” OPENS AT LOFTE THEATRE
The hilarious Hitchcock-inspired farce, “ Wrong Window!” will open on the Lofte Community Theatre’s stage on October 11. The script is written by the successful writing team of Van Zandt and Milmore whose other works include “Love, Sex and the I.R.S.,” and “Suitehearts.”
New York couple Marnie and Jeff think their neighbor has killed his wife. However, the woman’s body soon disappears and the bumbling witnesses sneak into the cross-courtyard apartment to solve the mystery. In all, there are over 30 script references to the works and characters in Alfred Hitchcock films. Can you spot them all?
The production is directed by and stars Kevin Colbert as Jeff. His wife Marnie is played by Brandy Palatas of Papillion. Rounding out the cast are Scott Pope and Scott Nielsen of Eagle, Melinda Mead of Plattsmouth, John Bell and Ken Patry of Omaha, and Jeff Johnston and Ken Snyder of Elmwood. Alyssa DiPaolo of Lincoln gives a stunning performance as the dead body.
Performance dates for “Wrong Window!” are October 11, 12, 17-19 and 24-26. Friday and Saturday curtain times are at 7:30pm. All Sunday performances are 2pm matinees. Tickets are $19 and reservations can be made by calling the box office at 402-234-2553. The Lofte Community Theatre is located just east of Hwy 50 near the town of Manley.
~ The most complicated skill is to be simple.
