School Board Makes Plans for Appointment

 

The South Sarpy School District #46 Board of Education has decided to replace 6-year veteran Todd Neitzel in an open process.  Neitzel resigned his position as Board member in November and has two years left on his term.  The Board is currently working with 5 members.

 

The process will include an application period and interviews, with the final selection being appointed by the Board.  Any eligible registered voter and resident of the school district may apply.  Letters of interest should include information about the person’s background (i.e. years in district, connections to school) and the reasons for applying for the Board position.  It can also include any other details the person wants to include.  If there are multiple applicants, the letters may be used to narrow the field of candidates.  Letters must be postmarked by December 31, 2010 and can be mailed to:  Dr. Chuck Chevalier, South Sarpy School District #46, 14801 S. 108th St., Springfield, NE  68059.

 

The Board may select those applicants to interview or interview all applicants.  Interviews, which will occur in an open Board meeting, are tentatively set for January 6, 2011 at a time to be announced later.  The Board may make a final decision that night, or they may wait until the regular meeting on January 10th.  The new Board member will be sworn in and seated immediately upon appointment.

 

Any questions may be directed to Dr. Chuck Chevalier, Superintendent, at 402-592-1300.

“GREETINGS”

Opens Winter Theater Season

KBC Productions announces that it will open the winter theater season at Mahoney State Park on December 3 with Tom Dudzick’s touching Christmas drama, “Greetings.” All performances take place at the Kountze Memorial Theater near the lodge inside of Mahoney State Park.

 

Greetings is the story of a mentally handicapped man named Mickey. He lives at home with his sweet Catholic mother and sour Catholic father. When older brother, Andy brings home a Jewish fiancée to meet his family on Christmas Eve, he fears the worst. However, that evening a small miracle occurs. Mickey, whose entire vocabulary consists of “Oh boy,” and “Wow,” suddenly blurts out, “Greetings!” the whole family is left to wonder how this is possible. It is a gentle heart-warming story for the whole family.

 

The production is directed by Kevin Colbert of Weeping Water. Starring in the production are Jim Knierim of Louisville, Stacy White and Shari Hoelker of Omaha and Chuck Danskin of Lincoln. Reprising the role of Mickey for the third time is Jim Frerichs of rural Dunbar.

 

Performances for “Greetings” are Dec 3-5, 10-12, 17-19 and 26-30. Adult tickets are $8. Children are priced at $6. Reservations can be made by calling Mahoney State Park at (402) 944-2523 ext. 7122. Curtain times are at 7:30pm except for Dec 5, 19 which are 2pm Sunday matinee performances. Mahoney State Park is located just off exit 426 on I-80 near the towns of Ashland and South Bend.
