April 4, 2013

Nebraska State Bank and Trust Company announced in a press release Tuesday that the bank’s branch offices in Mason City and Oconto would be closed, effective July 1, 2013.
The decision to close these two branches was not entered into lightly, says Nebraska State Bank President Stuart Fox, and just to dispel any rumors, the bank does not have any intent to close any other branches.

New life for Bow sale barn

April 4, 2013

There is a rejuvenated feeling of excitement at the Central Nebraska Commission Company, Broken Bow’s sale barn. Pens are being repaired, the yards are filling up, and trucks last week lined up for blocks waiting to unload cattle.
One community’s loss, is another’s gain.
Those now in charge are Wendell and Kathy Brott, their son Cooper, Sam Teply and Kenny Kramer.
Added to the Broken Bow crew already in place, the sale barn this last week has been busy, busier than it has been for a long, long time.
It’s a team thing, says Wendell.
