TAYLOR - - Did you know that the Village of Taylor is home to one of the only Certified Butterfly Gardens in the area? The Butterfly Garden is located south of the Taylor Visitor Center and surrounds the old jalopy that draws many visitors to stop and explore.
The Butterfly Garden is certified by the North American Butterfly Association and has been certified since 2011. A Butterfly Garden creates an environment for butterflies to thrive in and encourages habitat for pollinators. Three main steps need to be taken in order to create a certified Butterfly Garden.
Plans are in the works for a new FM radio station to come to Broken Bow. However, neither the Custer County Zoning Board or the Custer County Board of Supervisors have given their approval for the project.
After a split 4-4 vote by the zoning board, the matter came before the county commissioners during their regular meeting Tuesday. Presenting the request is Mark Jensen, owner of MJ Leasing. Jensen owns a handful of small radio stations in Nebraska, and recently purchased the station in Sargent.
