Broken Bow sisters meet adopted nephew

November 2, 2011

In this day of social networking it has become common to track down old classmates and friends, or even family members you have lost touch with over the years. For one local family, however, this ability lead to the discovery of a family member they didn’t know they had - until now.
Linda Guernsey and Ruth McConnell, sisters who live in Broken Bow, grew up in Pierre, S.D. Like many young men in the 60s, their brother Bob was sent to Vietnam. And like all too many of those young men, Bob did not return home. He was killed in action in January 1968.

Hammond leaves Bow, lives full life

November 2, 2011

Often we find ourselves wondering, “what ever happened to . . .?”
People we have known, or known of, who move away - lose touch. It is just human nature to wonder from time to time what ever became of those we used to know.
The Chief received word this week of the passing of a hometown native, who left Broken Bow shortly after graduating from high school. He went on to do some pretty remarkable things in his life, and while it would have been preferred to report on his whereabouts while he was still living, it is worth noting in the event of his passing.

Work starts on wind energy project

November 2, 2011

Traveling down Highway 70 east of Broken Bow, you might miss the small orange sign marking the turnoff for construction vehicles. The sign seems insignificant; you might not even notice it most days, the gravel and dirt road seems like any other country road. What lies down the road is far from insignificant. The construction project along this road is, in fact, one of the largest civil engineering projects Custer County has ever seen. This is the location of the new $145 million Broken Bow Wind Farm.

Shaws prepare for unique teaching assignment

November 2, 2011

Sixteen Hastings College students, including Mark and Katrina (Holland) Shaw from Broken Bow, will be going to Corozol, Belize to work and student teach in the schools during January Term and Spring semester. Unfortunately, the schools are almost completely devoid of many things that we think of as necessities. Many of the classrooms have no books. If there are school libraries at all, they have very few books. The playgrounds are usually fenced in dirt fields with no playground equipment of any kind.
