Broken Bow Rescue was called to the scene of a one vehicle rollover accident Monday afternoon at around 3:30 p.m.
Johnie Sikes, 66 of Anselmo, was driving a 2009 Dodge pickup approximately six and a half miles west of Broken Bow on Highway 2, when he lost control and rolled the pickup one and a half times. The pickup came to rest on the drivers side in the ditch on the north side of the highway, near the railroad tracks.
Students at Custer Elementary School in Broken Bow were treated to delicious fruit smoothies last week from Grocery Kart, as part of a campaign to encourage youngsters to make healthier food choices. Kenny Crawford, frozen foods manager at GK, was on hand to make smoothies, and some of the kids got to help out.
Kenny, a father himself, believes it is important to equip kids to make good decisions when it comes to what they eat, and was happy to be part of this program.
