Broken Bow Public Schools staff and administration once again hosted an Open House at North Park school Tuesday, to give citizens the opportunity to walk through the school, hear about the proposed building project and have any questions they may have answered.
This open house, however, was a little different than last weekâs, in that this one was held during school hours. Elementary Principal Kim Jonas and Superintendent Virginia Moon felt it was important to allow the public to see what they have been talking about concerning issues with the lunchroom, first hand.
September 11, 2001, began as any other Tuesday in the Graham home. Trevor had just returned home from PT and was in the shower, while his wife Jolie was preparing breakfast for the couple and their two children.
She had the TV on as she was working in the kitchen. As the news began to capture her attention, she saw the second plane hit the World Trade Center. She quickly ran into the bathroom and told Trevor what she was seeing.
âAt first I didnât believe her,â recalls Trevor. âI thought, yeah, some small Cessna must have flown into the side of the building.â
The year is 1945. The world is at war. Back in Norfolk, Virginia, standing in a Navy chow line, Ray Brown steps out and shouts, "Hey! Anybody here from Nebraska?" With a hand in the air, one man out of hundreds answered Ray. With a loud "Yah! Right here!" Don Denesia would become one of Ray's closest friends and , later, successful business partner.
On a troop train loaded with thousands of military personnel bound for Houston, Texas, Denesia would again run into his friend "Brownie" (as Don would nickname him).
