It is that time of year! Today marks the first day of school in Broken Bow, with most of the other area schools starting last week. This is a special first day for Broken Bow elementary students, who are entering the halls of either brand new or renovated classrooms at North Park. For those in the community who have pursued the dream of a new school for several years, this day was a long time coming

One of several infrastructure items to come before the Broken Bow City Council last week involves the City Square. The city plans to replace all four sidewalks leading up to the bandstand, and Street Superintendent Monte Clark says his department plans to accomplish that yet this season.
There was also discussion on whether to leave the bricks in place between the curb and the sidewalk on the west, north and east sides of the square, or concrete all the way to the curb. Council President Chad Schall said he has heard from at least a half dozen residents who want the bricks left there.
