District Court: Bain case hits another snag

August 30, 2013

The criminal case against Tyler C. Bain has hit yet another glitch. Bain appeared in Custer County District Court Aug. 22, with his attorney, Steven Potter, for a hearing on a motion to withdraw filed by the State.
The prosecution of the case was turned over to the State’s Attorney General’s Office when Steven Bowers was appointed Custer County Attorney. Prior to that appointment, Bowers served as a public defender, and had represented Bain in this case. Due to a conflict of interest the Custer County Attorney’s office removed themselves from the prosecution.

County Supervisors say yes to new station

August 28, 2013

• Hickenbottom breaks tie, motion passes 4-3

It’s officially a done deal - a new radio station is coming to Broken Bow.
The request for a conditional use permit to build a new radio tower north of Broken Bow was brought before the Custer County Planning & Zoning Commission twice, and the County Board of Supervisors twice, and each time the vote was close. Tuesday’s final vote by the county commissioners was no exception.

Zoning board says no - again

August 26, 2013

County Board of Supervisors will host public hearing Tuesday, 11 a.m., on new radio tower

When the Custer County Zoning Board met in July to consider a request for a conditional use permit to build a new radio tower north of Broken Bow, the board split the vote down the middle, 4-4. The reason, they said, for not approving the request was because it did not meet the setback guidelines.
