Sandhills ranch celebrates milestone

September 5, 2012

PURDUM - - Many area communities and counties are celebrating major anniversaries in 2012, be they Centennial or Quasicentennial (125 years) due in large part to the railroad coming through, but also to the perseverance and courage of those following their dreams of a better life here.
Such were Levi and Elenora Cox, who came from Ohio in 1887, arriving in Blaine County, three miles west of what is now Purdum. Saturday, Sept. 1, the Cox family celebrated their own Quasicentennial, treating family and friends to a great day of food, fun, socializing and reminiscing.

New Sargent Dam completed

September 5, 2012

Many people, including a large host of farmers and land owners, benefit from the Middle Loup River, and from being able to access the water. Last week, many of those who benefit from its use gathered for a dedication for the new Sargent Diversion Dam.
The dam has been more than two years in the works. The new dam replaces the one which was destroyed by a flood which occurred June 13, 2010, and will divert water into a canal to provide water to some 5,000 acres downstream.
