SUMP MEMORIAL LIBRARY
222 No. JEFFERSON
Come and hear the details of the life of William Liddiard, AKA as Rattlesnake Pete came to America at the young age of 17 to begin a new life in the Wild West. He settled in Springfield Nebraska in 1870 and by 1877 had become elected as a Sarpy County Deputy to serve in the area of the young western town. He was bigger than life and known for his quick wits and draw of the pistol. Though elected to serve the community of Springfield, he wandered about Sarpy and Douglas County having his name printed in various newspapers including the Omaha Bee which described him as a rough and tough character that loved to bring in the bad guys, and collect weapons in his disputes with Indians, Thugs and Bandits. His work with the Sheriff's office gave him notoriety and he rubbed shoulders with enough important people to become a supervisor of the Indian Exposition of the Trans Mississippi and Continental Exposition before joining ranks with Captain Mercer and the U.S. Marshals to work with the Lakota Sioux Indian tribe. Later he became Buffalo Bills right hand man in selecting Sioux Indians to perform in his Wild West shows before settling in Cody, Wyoming where he supervised the building of the Salsbury Canal. The talk will culminate with several rare photographs of William Liddiard as provided by his family in England.

"Almost, Maine" Auditions at Lofte
The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley announces that it will be holding open auditions on Sunday, July 22 and Monday, July 23 at 7pm. The theater is looking for 10 men and 9 women ages 22-50 for their upcoming production of, "Almost, Maine." No experience is necessary. The Lofte welcomes all levels of theatrical skill.
"Almost," is a combination of stories that take town in a remote, mythical town in Maine. It's a cold, clear moonless night and as the northern lights hover above, the town's residents find themselves falling in and out of love in unexpected and sometimes hilarious ways.
Actors will audition using cold readings from the script. The production's director will be Kevin Colbert. Those auditioning should bring a list of possible schedule conflicts. Rehearsals will begin around the first of August. Production dates are September 1, 2, 7-9 and 13-16.
