Back to school can be both an exciting and intimidating time for kids. It can also be an extremely stressful time for parents who are trying to provide back-to-school clothes and supplies while keeping the bills paid.
That stress can be greatly relieved for many parents thanks to a very special program through the local Salvation Army committee. A book bag give away is scheduled for Aug. 10 from 4-6 p.m. in the office of the Broken Bow Housing Authority. The program is a calling for the volunteers involved, and a God-send for the parents who benefit from it.
In the world of professional rodeo, Hadley Barrett is king. Barrett had a homecoming, of sorts, to Custer County this week where he served as co-announcer of the Bull Riding Classic at the Custer County Fair.
Barrett says it has been at least 30 years since he has been in Broken Bow, and he has been looking forward to returning. He holds a special fondness for this area, where his rodeo career began more than 40 years ago.
