Jean Hoffman of Battle Creek, Iowa will be the featured speaker during the Broken Bow Berean Church's Ladies Spring Luncheon Saturday, March 31. The luncheon will begin at noon at the Broken Bow Municipal Building. This year's theme is "Walking with Christ" with the theme verse of Isaiah 40:11- "He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently
leads those that have young."
The old adage, â€śit takes a village to raise a childâ€ť, has been taken to heart by one group of Broken Bow school district parents. The Broken Bow PTA has come a long way from the Harper Valley days Jeannie C. Riley sang about!
Thanks to the efforts of the Broken Bow PTA, the school district has been able to acquire technology equipment and support programs they may have otherwise not had the ability to do. Throughout just the past few years the group has raised literally thousands of dollars for the schools and spearheaded major projects such as the playground at Custer.
Custer County received word early this week that the effort to reduce the speed limit on West Highway 2 coming into Broken Bow was successful.
Nebraska Department of Roads Director Monty Fredrickson sent a letter to the Custer County Commissioners stating that changes will be coming to the section of highway beginning at mile marker 276, west of Grassland Veterinary Hospital. The plan is to reduce the speed limit from 65 mph to 55 mph at that mile marker.
