Bow boy gets special “bed shaker”

February 8, 2012

One Broken Bow mom will sleep with more peace of mind from now on, thanks to a generous donation from the Broken Bow Volunteer Fire Department and the Custer County Chapter of the Salvation Army.
The two entities pooled their resources to split the cost of purchasing a very special piece of life-saving equipment, for a very special little boy.
Ten-year-old Aniah Preston is completely deaf in his left ear, and has very little hearing ability in his right. He wears a cochlear implant in his left ear, but not at night.

Snow storm brings much needed moisture

February 7, 2012

It was predicted to be a massive winter storm, with forecasters calling for a foot of snow or more, coupled with strong winds, for much of the Chief coverage area. As the storm made its way across Nebraska Friday and Saturday, those predictions came true in some areas and fell short in others.
Meteorologists were so sure of their forecast, that many area schools were prompted to cancel classes and postpone events Friday. The LVC wrestling tournament, for example, which had been scheduled for Friday in Broken Bow got pushed up to Thursday in light of the impending storm.
