Heritage Nebraska Seeking Hidden Treasures and Fading Places Nominations

Heritage Nebraska, a statewide not-for-profit citizens preservation organization, is seeking nominees for its 2011 List of Hidden Treasures and Fading Places.

“We have selected 20 Fading Places and 22 Hidden Treasures during the first two years of this project,” said Heritage Nebraska Executive Director J.L. Schmidt.

“The Hidden Treasures are those places that may not yet be on the radar, but they are places worth seeing and most of them provide things worth doing,” Schmidt said. “The Fading Places represent icons of our history that are threatened with extinction through demolition or neglect often brought on by lack of money and vision. “

The nomination forms are available on the organization Web site: www.heritagenebraska.org or can be obtained by calling the office at 402-323-7338 or e-mailing   This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

Since the first list was released in May 2009, the Fading Places have ranged from Camp Lookout in Sidney to the Industrial Arts Building on the proposed University of Nebraska-Lincoln Innovation Campus. We’ve also included the state’s 400-mile wide Interstate 80 sculpture garden, rural churches and schools and grain elevators and the Oregon Trail and archaeological sites statewide, Schmidt said. Preservation work has been started on at least seven of the 20 Fading Places projects to date.

The Hidden Treasures have ranged from the Chadron Hotel/Old Main Street Inn in Chadron to the Lester F. Larsen Tractor Test and Power Museum on the University of Nebraska-Lincoln East Campus and places in-between. Historic Downtown Fremont, Downtown Scribner and Historic Downtown Sidney have also joined the list of places worth seeing, Schmidt said.

Nominations are due in our office on or before May 1,” Schmidt said. The winners will be announced at the next joint state conference of Heritage Nebraska Preservation and Heritage Nebraska Main Street in June.

Heritage Nebraska is a statewide not-for-profit citizen’s organization that advocates and promotes heritage in order to build stronger communities and maintain the essential character of Nebraska. The organization is affiliated with the Statewide and Local Partners of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the National Trust Main Street Center.

Suitehearts at Mahoney State Park

suiteheart

 

Shari Hoelker, Marikita Payne, Dave Hibler, Kevin Colbert and Adam Kovar all star in "Suitehearts" opening at Mahoney State Park on March 25th.

 

KBC Productions and Mahoney State Park announces that the romantic comedy, "Suitehearts" will begin its winter theater season run on March 25.  The story revolves around two newlywed couples who are mistakenly double-booked in the same honeymoon suite.  The Taylor's are very young, naive and visiting the big city for the first time.  The Bellamy's are older and have a more jaded outlook on life and romance.  With the help of a meddlesome bellboy, the couples find themselves in some impossible, but hilarious situations.  Adult audience members will all see a little of themselves in each of these characters as they learn the difference between a wedding and a marriage.

 

Starring in the production are Director Kevin Colbert from Weeping Water, Shari Hoelker from Omaha, Marikita Payne, Emma Hoffman and Adam Kovar all of Lincoln and Dave Hibler of Manley.  Performance dates are March 25-27, April 1-3, 8-10, 15-17, 22 and 23.  Tickets $8 for adults and $6 for children.  Curtain times are 7:30pm on Fridays and Saturdays; 2pm on Sundays.  Please call Mahoney State Park for reservations:  (402) 944-2523 ext. 7122.  A state park sticker or day pass is required to enter the park.

Let anyone who is thirsty come to me and drink.” John 7:37

God is a God who opens the door and waves His hand, pointing us to a full table.

His invitation is not just for a meal, however. It is for life.

An invitation to come into His kingdom and take up residence in a tearless,

grave-less, painless world. Who can come? Whoever wishes.

You are loved by God.
