The Kass Kounty King Korn Karnival kicks off Thursday night with Kornation on Main Street at 7:30 p.m.  The Plattsmouth Public Library auditorium is where the annual reception will be held after the Kornation.  I love King Korn Karnival, and every year, I am in line to get my first yumburger!

Terry Little’s annual Koffeehaus will also be held in the library auditorium on Friday, September 12 starting at 8:00 p.m.  Here are some pictures from last year’s performances-so plan on being at the library for fun, some singing along, and of course some free coffee!

Also important this year, the Nebraska Freemasons Masonic Child Identification Program (CHIPS) is coming to the VFW on Saturday, Sept. 13th. This starts at 9:00 a.m. and will run to 12:00 p.m. or later if needed. Forms and information on this program were sent home with school students last week. Any child, age 18 and younger is invited to participate.  Once completed, a CD is provided that includes a picture, brief interview, digital fingerprints, and other identifying information crucial to law enforcement officials if a child is reported missing.  This program is sponsored by Masonic Lodges in 13 membership areas and in cooperation with other law enforcement agencies, Nebraska Dental Association, and Nebraska Dental Hygienists’ Association.

The Plattsmouth Community Schools annual Picture Day is on Wednesday, September 17, 2008 for both the Early Childhood Center and the Plattsmouth Early Childhood Center. 

Steube’s Jack and Jill has officially become Steube’s Thriftway store. The grocery store is still locally owned and operated by Don Steube but will be offering Best Choice and Always Save brands instead of Family Food. 

El Sombrero, an authentic Mexican restaurant has opened on 8th Avenue.  I have been hearing really good reviews of the food and this is a great addition to  Plattsmouth. Once nice option is they offer breakfast all day!  Congratulations to the owners, Jose and Maria Luis Diaz-DeLeon and may you have much success!
