SARGENT - - Though he never served in the military himself, Dennis Seidel had the utmost respect and admiration for members of the U.S. Armed Forces, and was determined to honor those veterans in a special way in his hometown of Sargent. But he was not able to see that happen.
After his sudden, tragic death in February 2013, friends and loved ones of Dennis Seidel - in particular his girlfriend, Kathy Wilson - have made it their mission to complete the project Dennis was so passionately devoted to for the last years of his life; the Sargent Veterans Memorial.
It was not a popular decision, and one all four council members said they wish they did not have to make, but they did. For the second consecutive year, the Broken Bow City Council unanimously approved a rate hike Tuesday for city water use fees and for city sewer use fees.
The votes on the two ordinances came following lengthy discussion on the issues, led by Water & Sewer Superintendent Darren Marten. Marten explained to the Council that each year the Rural Water Association comes in to and does an overall survey of the communityâ€™s utilities and then makes recommendations accordingly.
