Lucille Alice Simonson Barant was born to Simon T. and Helen L. Stewart Simonson Feb. 24, 1927, on her parent's ranch north and west of Mullen in Cherry country. Lucille departed this life July 26, 2012, in North Platte.
Lucille was the youngest child and was adored by her sister Allegra and brother Bill.
Lucille grew up on the ranch, graduated from Mullen High School, attended Normal training and taught school for a few years. August 18, 1946, she married Stan Barent in a double ceremony with her sister Allegra and Dewayne Buechler in the front yard of their parent's ranch.
When there is a need, the people of central Nebraska tend to answer the call. Saturday, July 21, that opportunity presented itself, as a benefit for Randy Franzen brought well over 100 people to the event.
The benefit began with participants meeting downtown at Tiffany Theater, where organizational plans for the poker run were made prior to viewing the classic movie, â€śEvery Which Way But Loose.â€ť The movie was shown free, through the generosity of Stuart Fox, one of the benefitâ€™s sponsors.
Broken Bow proved that they could play with the best of the Class B teams at the state tournament.
Their bats, just didn't seem to make the trip. Broken Bow's season ended with a 3-0 loss to Seward in the Class B State tournament.
For more coverage, check out this week's edition of the Custer County Chief. Further updates will be made on the website later in the week.
Broken Bow stayed right with Roncalli for most of the game.
They held a 3-2 lead going into the bottom of the 6th, but then surrendered four and were unable to recover.
Roncalli held on for the 6-3 victory.
Broken Bow will take on Seward tomorrow at 11 am in the losers bracket contest.
Broken Bow's Grayson Minnick spent most of the previous baseball season with a metal plate in his leg and a brace that restricted his motion. A snowboarding accident left him with a broken femur.
This season, he helped make sure he was part of the state tournament festivities.
After Broken Bow forced a deciding game in the district championship with rival Holdredge, Minnick came alive in the second and deciding game.
MASON CITY - - Although the Lincoln Town Site company named this town Mason after Judge O. P. Mason of Lincoln, the post office refused to accept that name because it could be too easily confused with Macon. So, the railroad referred to it as Mason and the post office became known as Mason City.
Each year Mason City hosts a â€śHomecoming Celebrationâ€ť, which not only beckons alumni of the communityâ€™s now extinct school, but to all who have fond memories of life in a small town.
The Custer Public Power District is experiencing historic levels of demands for electricity.
The extreme pressure placed on the system during this irrigation systems due to the hot, dry weather is stressing transmission systems, the high voltage lines that move electricity from power plants to CPPDs substations. To reduce that stress, CPPD has placed controls on irrigation wells.
Late last week, Rick Nelson met with a group of NPPD customers to review their options, and decided to divide up its nine power districts into three groups for more effective control of transmission relief.

Just this past week, Penn Stateâ€™s students and faculty alike watched as the empire that longtime football coach Joe Paterno and his staff spent decades building, crumble in front of their eyes in a matter of days.
What happened at Penn Sate and with long time assistant coach Jerry Sandusky has been well documented.
No punishment that any governing body could muster would do the victims justice, at least not deep down.
What happened in Happy Valley is unlike anything that has ever swept the college athletic landscape.
