As many of you folks know, Plattsmouth is going to have their own Hy-Vee store!

I for one, am looking forward to this.  We love all that Hy-Vee has to offer.  Decorated cakes for Birthdays, Organic & Natural foods, Wine & Sprits, and Lots of Smiles to go Around!

 Here are some pictures of the Store coming along quite nicely!

Adult Game Nights will Resume in October

There will not be any adult game nights at the library until fall. Many people are out of town during the summer and those that stay in town take advantage of the nice weather to listen to music at the Plattsmouth Entertainment Center on Fridays. We hope to see our avid gamers when we resume adult game nights in October.

 

 


New Exhibits and Festival Activities at

Cass County Museum

  

In conjunction with the Plattsmouth Harvest Festival, Cass County Historical Society has opened a new exhibit "Harvest Memories: Farm Life and Fall Festivals". The exhibit recalls the 1916 Fall Festival and Kass Kounty King Korn Karnivals from the 1930s to the 1960s. Included are photographs and memorabilia such as ties and souvenir pins.  The exhibit will continue through October 27. 

Also on view through October 27  is the  exhibit "Remembering Beautiful Merritt Beach". Included are photographs  about the recreation area that was located  just south of the Platte River on the east side of Highway 75. Merritt Beach was in operation from the 1930s through 1989. 

Cass County Museum's regular summer hours are Tuesday through Sunday from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m.   

For additional information about the exhibits or special festival events, contact the museum, 402-296-4770.

 

 


Back by popular demand is ....
 
The Plattsmouth Conservancy Haunted Victorian Ghost Walk!  
The Ghost Walk will take place on the evenings of 
Friday, October 11th and Saturday, October 12th from 7:30 – 10:00 p.m
 
You will have the opportunity to follow the night watchman’s lantern through the enchanted hills of Plattsmouth where they will step inside four historic Plattsmouth homes and experience haunted tales of current and days gone by.  You will also make stops during your walk and listen to stories of ghost hauntings in the local Plattsmouth area. 
 
This is not your traditional “haunted house” event.  We promise that no skeletons will pop out at you or giant spiders drop down on you (or at least that I know of).  But perhaps you will catch a glimpse of a ghostly spirit who chooses to make their presence known at this time of year when the veil between our world and the spirit world is most easily penetrated.
 
This is a walking tour so appropriate dress and walking shoes are recommended.  There is a total of twelve blocks between the four houses with stops at each house where guests will be seated to listen to a haunted tale.
 
To make reservations please contact Sandra Allgeier @ This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.  or (402) 296-2249.  You may also purchase tickets at Antiques Off Main, 125 S 5th Street, Plattsmouth, Nebraska  - (402) 296-3113.  
 
If you are interested in attending the Ghost Walk I would encourage you to purchase your tickets early.  Tickets are limited and we sold out quickly in previous years.
 
This really is a great event – I promise you will not be disappointed!

Things That “Sting” 
 
European wasp white bg
 
Wasps:    Yellow jacket wasps become a nuisance in our area from late summer until the first freeze.  If you have been to a picnic, outside restaurant, sporting event, or any outdoor event you have most likely come across these wasps.  At this time of the year they are scavenging for food and unfortunately, they are attracted to human food.
 
• Never swing, strike or run away from a wasp.  Quick movements can provoke the wasp to sting.
 
• If you’re eating outdoors, keep your food covered- especially fruit and soft drinks.  
 
• Refuse containers should have tight-fitting lids.  Pet bowls should be cleaned after using.
 
• Avoid using perfume, aftershave lotions, scented soaps and shampoos when you will be in areas where bees and wasps congregate.
 
• Avoid wearing bright, colored flowery prints.  Jewelry that is shiny may also attract bees and wasps.
 
black vs brown spiders s1
 
Spiders:  The brown recluse and black widow are two types of spiders that callers frequently ask about. The black widow may have a red hour glass on its belly. The brown recluse usually is yellow-orange in color and has a violin-shaped marking on its head. These bites are seldom fatal, but can have serious side effects. If bitten, 
contact the poison center. Symptoms may vary and treatment is different for each spider.
 
Prescription2
 
Allergy medications:  Seasonal allergies can make people miserable this time of the year.  Stinging, red, watery eyes and runny noses are common symptoms of ragweed and mold in the fall. These symptoms are combated with nasal sprays, antihistamines, decongestants and inhalers.  Be careful not to leave these medications out where young children may have access to them.  Always read your medication labels and keep track of the times you take your medications to avoid errors.   Medications are the leading cause of childhood poisoning.  
 
Medications are also the leading cause of poisoning deaths in adults.
 
peper
 
Peppers:  Capsaicin, the oily chemical irritant found in hot peppers, can cause stinging, redness and burning pain when handled.  The oil is spread easily, so avoid touching areas such as the eyes and face.  The best prevention is to wear rubber gloves while canning.

The Nebraska Regional Poison Center number, 1-800-222-1222, should be programmed into every phone and should be the first place you call to get immediate, professional, 24/7 help from the experts.

**I personally have used the Poison Center a few times.  The ladies that have answered my phone calls have been very helpful in answering my questions.  I also have them on speed dial :)
