County buries time capsule ... open 2112

October 11, 2012

The year 2012, marks the centennial of the Custer County Courthouse. In August, a big centennial celebration was hosted by the county, and just this week the final step in the centennial celebration - the burial of a time capsule - took place.
A committee was organized about a year ago to work out the details of the time capsule. Items, depicting what the county was like in 2012, were gathered to be placed in the capsule. It is hoped that during the bicentennial year, 2112, the capsule will be dug up and opened.

Sunshine Library still going strong

October 8, 2012

MASON CITY - - For nearly a century, adults and children alike have utilized the Sunshine Library in Mason City - both as a place to get good books to read, and a place to just hang out.
For many of those years, Joan Cox served the community as the trustworthy librarian. When Joan recently retired from the many duties she took on in the Mason City community, it became necessary for others to step to the plate and take over some of those responsibilities. One of those is the library, and Donna Zimmer and Loretta Lovitt are two of the local volunteers who have agreed to take on the task.
