NEBRASKA WINERY AND GRAPE GROWERS
“Year four of the program features 23 Nebraska wineries and 6 tasting rooms, where participants can pick up a passport and begin enjoying Nebraska’s wines. Nearly 28,000 passports have been distributed across the state. Our Passport Program is designed to encourage more Nebraskans to visit our award-winning wineries in 2011,” Hilske said. Passports can also be downloaded from the association’s website atwww.nebraskawines.com. “The NWGGA Passport Program not only promotes Nebraska wines, but also encourages people to visit communities and buy other products all over the state. It’s a win-win for everyone,” concluded Hilske.
In addition, Passport Program participants who visit at least 15 wineries and 4 tasting during the year are automatically entered into a prize drawing. The 2010 NWGGA Passport Grand Prize winner was Shane Marquis of Lincoln, who won a weekend stay in a Nebraska Bed & Breakfast Inn of his choice. First prize, a case of Nebraska wines, was awarded to Karen Bullard of Omaha. Vicki Vonloh of Lincoln won second prize, a From Nebraska Gift Shop $50 Gift Certificate.

The Lofte Community Theatre of Manley, NE was one of two Nebraska arts organizations recently selected to represent the state at the AACT Regional play competition held in Kansas. Players from the Lofte performed a one hour cutting from "Leaving Iowa," a comedy by Tim Clue & Spike Manton that revolves around one man's memories of childhood family vacations.
In all, there were ten entries from the states of Nebraska, Iowa, Kansas, North and South Dakota, Minnesota and Missouri. The competition took place at the Salina Community Theatre April 28-May 1. At the end of the competition, the Lofte took home two prestigious awards; "Best Costumes," and actor Larry Bauers of Louisville was awarded, "Best Supporting Actor." Beatrice's Community Players were recognized in the category of "Best Sound." The Lofte is a non-profit organization and was able to attend the competition thanks to generous donations from the general public as well as a grant from the Nebraska Arts Council.
Artistic Director Kevin Colbert was extremely proud of the cast's performance. He also noted that the winner of the competition, "Wiley and the Hairy Man," from a theater in Cloquet, Minnesota was directed by Cheryl Kramer-Milder (formerly Callahan). Cheryl is a Lofte Community Theatre alumni who performed in many of their productions from 1978-1981. The Minnesota team will now advance to the national AACT competition being held in Rochester, NY.
The full-length version of "Leaving Iowa," will open the Lofte's 2011 season. Performances will run May 28-June 12. Tickets are $17 and can be purchased online at www.Lofte.com or by calling the Lofte box office (402) 234-2553.
