Manley owes its existence to the Missouri Pacific Railroad, which built its main line from Atchison, KS, to Omaha in 1881-82. This line traversed Cass County south-to-north coming through Avoca, Weeping Water, Manley, and on to Louisville.
The state of Nebraska has allowed for the opening of theatres at 50% capacity. As Nebraska reopens its economy, we recognize our role as a theatre to bring hope, relief and joy. We’ve consulted with county health officials to promote the safety of our patrons, staff and volunteers during this unprecedented time.
Here is what you can expect for your upcoming Lofte experience.

We had to unfortunately postpone our annual Waffleman fundraiser due to COVID.
Elmwood Rescue relies heavily on donations, fundraising and 911 calls to fund our ambulance service since we don't get any Tax Money. We are 100% self-sufficient on those options. We use the money to help with upkeep and maintenance on our equipment and vehicles. We also provide Free EMS standbys at all E-M Knight Home Football games, yearly scholarships to high school seniors, training for our members, reimbursement for new EMTs on our service (it costs approximately $1,500 to send 1 student to EMT class).
Below is the link to sign up. Everyone that signs up before October 15th will get a T-Shirt and a Medal. Anyone who signs up after October 15th will not be guaranteed a medal. Thank you for your help in getting the word out!
There are really NO EXCUSES for failing to vote. You have to work that day? No excuse. Don't have a babysitter? No excuse. You don't want to go out in a crowd? No excuse. Do you know that any Nebraska resident who is a LEGALLY REGISTERED VOTER may request an EARLY-VOTING BALLOT APPLICATION, (also known as an 'ABSENTEE' ballot)? You don't even need to have a reason, (or an excuse), for the request!
One excellent reason for voting by absentee, is the weather. An ice or snow storm, heavy winds or torrential rains could possibly keep you from physically voting on the actual Election Day. No worries about that with your mail-in vote either.
Do you need another good reason for voting by mail? You might get sick and cannot physically go to your polling place.
OR call your local Election Office and ask for one to be mailed to you. In Cass County NE, that's 402-296-9309.
OR in Cass County NE, there is a box located outside the building where you can just pick one up. You may also pick one up at the Election Office inside. The address is 201 Main Street, Plattsmouth, NE, (white building southeast of the flagpole).
Accurately, completely fill out the form. Include your name, residence address, phone number, mailing address you want the ballot sent to and your signature. Even if you do the automatic fill-in form online, you still need to SIGN IT after you print it. Mail it right away or take it to the Cass County NE Election Office and drop it in the box outside on the southwest wall of the building.
On September 28th ballots will start to be sent out and you should receive yours shortly thereafter.
Next to the Cass County Election Office door you'll see two sets of forms, one on the right for Voter Registration and on the left, the Early Voting Forms.
After they're filled out and signed, you may take them inside, mail them, or drop them in the 'Ballot Box' around the corner of the building, to the right of the big Election Office sign.
The Cornhusker Country Music Theater is gradually getting a NEW LOOK!
As of now, the top front is still old barn board, but there is a new, white metal awning where the old shake shingles used to be and below that, new, Cornhusker red, metal siding. Little by little, the whole front will have a new, fresher look.
