Busy month for Broken Bow fire fighters

December 15, 2010

While the first week of December was exceptionally busy for the Broken Bow Volunteer Fire Department, facilitator Andy Holland says calls for the year are below the average - and that is a good thing.
As of Monday, the department had been dispatched to a total of 50 fire calls throughout the 2010 year, compared with the annual average of 70. However, December started out with a bang, with the BBVFD receiving five calls in the first seven days of the month.

Peregrine Falcon visits preschool

The School Garden in Broken Bow had a very special guest last Friday, a bird of prey.

The Blackburns thought he and his birds would be a fun ‘Show and tell’. They were correct.
“The sport of Falconry is at last 4,000 years old,” Michael explained later. “There are those who would argue that it is at last 10,000 years old. You see the pictures inscribed as hieroglyphics. “
