Remembering 9/11 . . . Roy Crites volunteers

September 9, 2011

*Editor’s Note: In Remembering 9/11: 10 Year Anniversary, the Custer County Chief asked some of our citizens about 9/11: Did they remember where they were and what they were doing when the planes hit ... they did; Do they believe this event impacted the United States and if so, how? And where they impacted directly?

Deputy Roy Crites was working for the Custer County Sheriff’s Office at the time of 9/11. He said then Sheriff Ted Henderson came into the room and said,”Holy cow! I think we’re under attack!”

Broken Bow plucks Chants in overtime

September 9, 2011

BROKEN BOW--The Broken Bow football team was looking for redemption after dropping their first game of the season and did just that. After blocking Ord’s extra-point during the first possession of overtime Broken Bow running back Justin McCullough found the end zone and Tanner Johnson kicked an extra point and the Indians escaped with a 21-20 win over rival Ord.
The Indian defensive motto was "bend but don't break" last Friday night.
