A text message sent to a Nebraska State Patrol (NSP) Trooper by mistake, lead to a Kearney man being charged with marijuana possession.
Monday, Nov. 7, a Trooper with the Nebraska State Patrol Troop D Headquarters-North Platte began receiving text messages from an unknown number. The message indicated the person texting, wanted to buy drugs. The Trooper continued contact with the individual through text and established a meeting point at a location in Broken Bow.
Thanks to the combined effort of three local civic organizations, some special needs students at Broken Bow Schools will be able to received some very special - and much needed - exercise.
Ann Kujath, life skills teacher at BBPS, approached the three groups - the Lions, the Elks and the Knights of Columbus - about the project more than a year ago. At a cost of $2,500, the suspension walker was not in the school's budget. And the three groups were more than happy to help.
