My curfew was the street lights. And Mom didn’t call my cell, she yelled “time to come in”. I played outside with friends, not online. If I didn’t eat what my mom made me, I didn’t eat. Hand sanitizer didn’t exist, but you could get your mouth washed out with soap. I rode my bike without a helmet, I got dirty, I drank water from a garden hose and I survived.

Mayor’s Corner

Spring has finally come! The clean up of our town was a success and the picnic lunch after was fun. It looks better with the garbage out of the ditches. Thanks to all who volunteered and Henry’s Diner for supplying the hot dogs and buns. The highway through town is scheduled to be repaved later this summer. The county is going to pave from the county line by Loveland to Council Bluffs at that time. It will be nice to have our main street redone. Next we need a sidewalk/bike trail through town. The momentum is building for the county-wide trail system which will benefit Crescent greatly. When the bike trail comes to our city it will be up to each business to get the new customers into their establishments. Another important issue is the strategic plan for our town. We are hosting a handson workshop Saturday, May 4th at 9am at the community room. We hope to see a good crowd and develop a plan of action. There are grants out there that we need to take advantage of and your input is important to us. Refer to front cover for more details. If you have questions, call me at 402-968-7432. —Brian Shea


Several volunteers worked on the Crescent Cemetery on Beautification Day. We walked the grounds cleaning out flowers around the head stones and any leftover arrangements. Many cemetery’s across the country are now outlawing shepard’s hooks which are used for hanging baskets. They pose a safety hazard for mowers if they’ve fallen over. We pulled many of the hooks, several of which were already on the ground, and other ornaments that could pose a mowing hazard. They are lying at the entrance to be claimed by the owners. Please understand that we do not want to offend anyone. We’re just trying to keep it maintained and safe to mow and visit.

Three Cheers for Our Volunteers! Pott. County As you know, a town our size has a pretty tight budget which means we depend greatly on volunteers to get things done and make things happen. This months was no Sheriff’s Report exception. They showed up with their work gloves in hand and a smile on their faces. We’d like to give a big Thank You to the guys who helped work on the pool on the 20th. It was short notice and a pretty cold day but Mark Schildberg, Pat Morgan, Brent Dizona, Randy Adams and Brian Shea stepped up to the task. (Shown in the first five photos.) The following weekend, we had approximately 20 eager volunteers who gathered at the community hall. They then dispersed through town to give it a good spring clean. They filled one large dumpster to the top with trash from ditches, debris from the cemetery and a decayed shed. Photos below show several, but not all, of the volunteers enjoying a picnic at the Vet’s Park afterwards. That Sunday, Jeremy Sindelar and several others from his scout troop spent the day at Pokamoke painting the pool shower houses and picnic tables. They also helped clean the grounds around the pool.

What’s Up at CECC?

Last month, we mentioned we were having our Week of the Young Child Open House on Apr. 19 and that surely winter would be over by then. We were wrong! But we did hold our open house and were smart enough not to schedule a picnic. We had Sloppy Joe’s and side dishes inside. And we thank board members who donated desserts. Our activity was Minute To Win It games, which all the kids enjoyed. But it was the father’s who managed to “win it”. Mark Blair was the only person who could stack five apples and keep them standing. Justin Limpp was brave enough to cover his nose with Vaseline and use it to move cotton balls. We love fathers who aren’t afraid to be silly! And the kids do, too. We did take all the kids to Lauritzen Gardens during Spring Break. Once again, the weather limited us. We took one of their classes and got to play with Legos, and we saw the Lego sculptures, which were inside the building. Unfortunately, the model train and most of the gardens were not open yet. Many of the kids asked if we could come back when the plants were in bloom. So we hope to do that. We thank Jennifer Limpp for driving. We also took the preschool class to one of the Mission Imagination concerts put on by the Omaha Symphony. They do several concerts each year specifically for young children and they are very good. Everyone brings home-made instruments, and we get to sing and play along on a number. They teach kids about symphony music in a fun way. It’s a great way to introduce kids to orchestra music. And really, how many of us have ever taken a young child to a symphony concert? Easter is also hard to celebrate when it’s still winter. But we did manage to dye and stuff a lot of eggs. We thank Alex and Ethan Brewer for hiding them for us and then helping those who were a bit overwhelmed by the running and yelling to find their fair share. Community of Christ Church also donated some of theirs from the week before. So everyone went home with a lot of Easter eggs. Our preschool curriculum the last month, besides Easter crafts, was a few days on instruments in preparation for the symphony concert. We made percussion instruments (they’re the easiest) and rubber band banjos. We listened to “Peter and the Wolf”, which is good introduction to instruments, and we talked some about rhythm, dynamics and melody. Everyone wrote his or her own song, which we played on the piano. And now we’ve finally started on the alphabet. We practice the names and sounds of the letters and are trying to learn the sign language for each letter. But it’s hard to remember all those. Some of the kids are writing the letters, and some aren’t ready for that yet. If you are looking for summer care for your child, we remind you that it’s only a month away. We would like to have the names of all the kids that will be with us this summer by the first week in May so that we can make plans. But if you are reading this after that week, you may still give us a call. We hope to have a full class for summer activities.

iPads for Crescent Elementary Reprinted from The Daily Nonpareil

Crescent Elementary School is the proud owner of nine new iPad Mini’s thanks to EMC Insurance Companies in cooperation with the SilverStone Group. The effort, according to EMC Insurance Companies, is part of a plan to combine learning and technology, and give students a competitive edge in today’s “tech-savvy world.” “By integrating technology into classroom activities, students are better prepared to use technology in the real world,” Jim Fontanini, Des Moines Branch manager and Resident Vice President of EMC Insurance Companies, said in a press release. “It’s important to keep students interested in learning, and by using the latest technology, we can keep their attention and help them learn more.” EMC partnered with the SilverStone Group to select Crescent Elementary School, which was one of 12 schools in the state that has or will receive computer equipment from EMC. Representatives from both companies visited the school Friday, April 5, to deliver the iPad Mini’s. The school will use the devices “in the field” to conduct research, document data, execute experiments and share their findings. “The kids are so excited to get their hands on them that we can’t get them formatted fast enough,” said Melissa Chalupnik, Principal at Crescent Elementary. “I know these iPad will only enhance our abilities to become 21st Century learners. Thanks to EMC and to SilverStone for their partnership and commitment to education.”

Goldie Hawn’s career as an actresscomedienne was launched after being spotted as a dancer in the chorus line on The Andy Griffith Show in 1966. Under the Motion Picture Censorship Code, which was effective from 1934 to 1968, a screen kiss could only last thirty seconds before being labeled “indecent.” The last time the Queen curtsied was in 1952—to her father’s body in St. George’s Chapel, Windsor. There is a secret (until now) station on the London Underground system beneath Buckingham Palace, so that the family can escape to Heathrow Airport in an emergency. Neither the emu or kangaroo can walk backward, and for that reason they are featured on the Australian coat of arms. When Voyager 2 visited Neptune, it filmed a small, irregular white triangle that zips around Neptune’s surface every sixteen hours or so and is now known as the Scooter.

One human hair can support more than six and a half pounds. The term “maverick” came from Texas rancher Sam Maverick, who refused to brand his calves.
