Red Cross seeks blood donations to offset seasonal decline

LINCOLN, Neb. (July 1, 2015) — The American Red Cross urges eligible donors to help offset a seasonal decline in donations and prevent a shortage this summer by giving blood.

During June, July and August, there are about two fewer donors than needed at each Red Cross blood drive. This can add up to more than 100,000 fewer donations during the summer. Many schools that host blood drives are out of session, and vacation schedules can make regular donors less available – both contributing to the seasonal decline.

Donors of all blood types – especially those with types AB, O negative, A negative and B negative – are needed to help ensure blood products are available to hospital patients this summer. Type AB donors have the universal plasma type, which can be given to patients of all blood types. Plasma helps maintain blood pressure and supplies critical proteins for clotting immunity. It is often needed for burn, trauma and cancer patients.

To make an appointment to give blood, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Auditions for ‘Proof’ at Lofte Community Theatre

Manley, NE [June 29, 2015] -  The Lofte Community Theatre in Manley will be holding open auditions for the award-winning play, ‘Proof’ on July 20 and 21 at 7pm.  Written by David Auburn, this play won both the Pulitzer Prize and Tony Award in 2001.  

Artistic Director Kevin Colbert is looking for two women and two men to bring this story to life.  Catherine is the brilliant daughter of an esteemed mathematician who has just died after a prolonged mental illness.  One of the professor’s students has discovered a wealth of cutting-edge calculations and assumes they are the work of his late mentor.  Can Catherine provide proof that the work is hers, and that she’s not mentally ill like her father?

Rehearsals will begin in late July.  Production dates for the play are August 29-30, September 3-6 and 11-13.  Actors planning to audition should bring a list of possible schedule conflicts and be prepared to perform cold readings from the script.  Those with questions may call the theater at (402) 234-2553 or email the director at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  The Lofte is located just a mile east of the town of Manley near the intersection of Hwy 50 and Hwy 1.
