The American Legion Auxiliary held their second dinner theatre, "Mur- der at the Christmas Sweater Party." Misty Sunday played the part of Isabella Rudolph, the party planner and town gossip of Snow Fails (neigh- boring community of Frostbite Falls presumably), who coordinated the Christmas sweater party at Snow Falls Inn. Deb Wilbur (one of Jan Hartman's co-workers at Red Cloud High School) ably played the part of Roxy Rich, who incidentally was the murder victim. Her blood-curdling scream as she was strangled sent everybody in the hall looking for the source. Phil Troudt starred as Sam Sugarplum, abig screen sensation in his role as the Ginger- bread Man in the hit movie of the same name. Anita Simpson, Shanna (Char Troudt's daughter), Janice Hartman, Donna (Char' s mother), John Hartman and Arlene Anderson were other mem- bers of the cast. Phil and Deb practi- cally stole the show in their roles as murder victim and murderer. After her murder, Deb flitted about the hall in her white robe, casting clues about, while Phil was convincing in his role as a celebrity. During the play, the audience had a three-course meal of appetizers, entres and desserts, served buffet style. Plenty of champagne (sparkling apple cider) and punch were also served. Dessert was sugar cookies in the shape of ugly Christmas sweaters. Members of the Auxiliary worked several hours at least three nights running baking and deco- rating these cookies. Boy, did they get some ugly Christmas sweaters out of them! Apparently, they were too pretty -- or ugly -- to eat, because only half of them were consumed at the party. Sandy Larkey stood by the door as guests were exiting and urged every- body to take cookies home for milk and cookies at bedtime. There was also a chance to vote on the ugliest Christmas sweater at the party. Ron Schutte took first place with his red sweater with Rudolph enjoying a bottle of beer. His prize.., a plate full of Christmas cookies. Actually, his FARMERS INSURANCE Jeremiah (Cody) Fierateln, Agent 308 N Central - Superior, NE (402)879-0109 jfierstein flerstein real prize was two tickets to the next dinner theatre. Everybody in the area seems to enjoy these dinner theatres, so plans are to keep them up, at least until everybody gets tired of them. I think the water tower painting project is finally completed. I drove by there yesterday evening and the town name is now painted on it, with a dark stripe above and below the name. In the dim lighting I couldn't tell exactly what color the stripes were, but they are there. Cindy Town Clerk said she'd received a lot of suggestions to paint the tower as a golf ball on a tee, but the extra paint and time were too expensive, so they just went with the town name and the stripes. Hopefully, we' re done with the water tower and its expensive repairs and upkeep for a few years -- maybe even until the town gets the loan on it paid off! Neither Courtney at CPI nor the anonymous voice at Ely Grain knew anything "new, different or exciting" when I called them for news this morn- ing. Both are working on getting their ground storage piles of grain picked up and shipped out; CPI is concentrating on their stockpiles.of mile and soy- beans, while Ely Grain has about a third of their ground-stored corn picked up and shipped out. Courtney said they hoped to be able to start on their corn pile next week. That's about all I've got for this time around. Next'week, a report on the Legion Auxiliary's annual turkey dinner.

The party was held at a Belleville restau- rant. Thursday, Kelly Westervelt had sur- gery and is home recuperating. Pat Barnett and Chick Gunn, Belleville, attended the college gradu- ation of daughter, Jessica,Dawn Barnett. She graduated from  col- leges of engineering and agriculture at K-State. Jessica is the daughter of Pat Barnett, granddaughter of Chick Gunn, Belleville, and daughter of Don Barnett. Jessica will start her job in Alamosa, Colo., iti January. Sunday morning, the Scandia United Methodist Church presented the living nativity pageant. Jasalyn Imler, Chance, Anna Vanderpole and Betty Bouray from Republic were in the pageant. Jen Imler was present to watch. The children also played the bells and Chance and Jasalyn played in the band during special music during the offertory. Each family of the chil- dren were presented with a nativity set with homemade stable and a goodie bag at the conclusion. Kent Swartz traveled to South Caro- lina to visit his son, Brad Swartz. The Rue Hobson Memorial Library board held a special meeting to choose a new librarian. Marilyn Aurand was hired as the new librarian with Ryan Brown as a substitute. Marilyn Aurand held a Republic Pioneer 4-H Club arts and crafts meet- ing at the Rae Hobson Memorial Li- brary. Those attending were Jaren Aurand, Carson, Braden, Sherice and Heather Frasier. The youths made win- ter wreaths. On the Dec. 9 and 10, the CKLS push team from Great Bend arrived at the Rue Hobson Memorial Library and with other volunteers a good 75 per- cent of the books and videos have been put in the computer and it is one step closer to automation. With volunteer help they will complete what was not finished and a few from the team will come back in February to do some more training before they go live. Once they go live they will be one of thou- sands of libraries that will be able to loan out items. They already are on courier and can loan and borrow but this will be more so. It will also help them track items, easily check out items and inventory and do paper work with ease. Holiday open houses this week are: Wednesday, 10-7 Rip City Inn and Republic oil; Saturday, the City of Republic complete with Santa held at the city office at l0 a.m.; Saturday, Rue Hobson Memorial Library 2 to 4 p.m.; Sunday, RFD No. 9, 7 to 10 a.m. The Do Nothings' Christmas party was odd. It is the only way I can de- scribe it. We had planned to meet at the River Valley Bed and Breakfast in Republic for a meal and fun. Well we did meet there and there was a meal, way too much as always. Carol Jean spoils us so also she was planning on four to five people. Well, the odd thing is it consisted of Betty B ouray, Nadine Adams and Jone Rodgers. Shirley Johnson had a family emergency and Pat Dinning was not feeling well. Nadine tried to call many people to join us and everyone was busy or gone. We played a round of hand and foot which I must add Betty Bouray won. We had pie, which I know none of us had room for but ate it anyway, and exchanged some gifts. Decided what to do with our giving money for the year. Jone had to leave early so we parted ways at 2 p.m. We normally would plan our next year at this time but will do that in January as Betty Bouray hosts at Antiqu-es in Courtland at 11:30 a.m. Cam Gates and Joni Latham, Re- public, attended the graduation cer- Custom Application of Liquid and Dry Fertilizer and Chemical Propane Anhydrous Dvm=-Gro In the background (from left) Jenna Whitmore, Cheyenne Franzen, Jillian Worm prepare a hot dog for Natalie Mohler at the Scout Cabin as part of the Candy Cane Lane activities, Friday evening.
