Warning: Space Pirates will be coming to the High School Auditorium!

By Valerie Close, Editor · April 5th, 2019
Tomorrow night at 7:00 p.m. and Sunday at 2:00 p.m. the high school drama will perform their spring play based on a children’s show about Space Pirates who board an Alien ship looming for treasures from Earth. The music is lively, the costumes are fun, and the cast is looking forward to performing for kids of all ages.

I have to admit there's something intriguing about a play called, "30 reasons NOT to be in a play" that makes you want to see the play. I think two of my favorite reasons were zucchini and the other, well, Abraham Lincoln, honestly you can't argue the fact that the play at Ford's Theater went drastically wrong and should have ended plays right then and there.

Farmers Mercantile, a Hidden Gem in Downtown Garrison

By Valerie Close, Editor · March 25th, 2019
I don't know about you, but it seems like sometimes it's just hard to carve out some time to sit and relax.Sure, you can always turn on the TV, but it's not the same as hopping in the car going to a homey place to enjoy some live music.Several years ago, the Fishers saw an opportunity to create such a place in Farmers Mercantile Hall in Garrison.

On April 28th, Darrel Draper of Omaha will present a free program on the Lewis and Clark Expedition, re-enacting Sacagawea’s baby Jean Baptiste Charbonneau as an adult. The presentation will be held at the Andersen Center Point Library basement beginning at 7:00 p.m. Sponsored by the Center Point Historical Society.
