The Custer County Board of Supervisors Tuesday appointed Steven Bowers as the new Custer County Attorney.
The office of Custer County Attorney was vacated when Tami Schendt was appointed to succeed Gary Washburn as County Court Judge. There are two years left on Schendtâ€™s term as county attorney.
Bowers was one of four candidates interviewed for the position by the board Sept. 25. He was recently appointed to serve as Deputy County Attorney by acting County Attorney Glenn Clark.

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.
Last week was Spirit Week at Broken Bow High School, which culminated with a pep rally Friday afternoon, followed by the Homecoming football game that evening - where the Indians hosted long-time rival, Ord Chanticleers. The 2012 Homecoming King & Queen were crowned at the conclusion of the game.

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.
Broken Bow put in a strong defensive effort, resulting in a 10-7 victory over Ord to cap their homecoming night. The game ended when Hunter Campbell came up with an interception in the end zone on a 4th and 25. Campbell also scored Broken Bow's only touchdown and had a fumble recovery.
