One Box Hunt brings National Champ to town

November 2, 2011

A world-class shooter is coming to town. Bill McGuire won his first National Sporting Clay Championship this last weekend weekend in San Antonio, Texas, finishing just three targets ahead of runner-up Zachary Kienbaum.
This weekend he’ll be hunting pheasants as part of the 2011 One Box Pheasant Hunt in Broken Bow.
There will be eight teams competing in this year’s event for the third time in the event’s 51 years, said Thomas McCaslin, event chair.
“The momentum is there. There will be lots of good shooters competing.”

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.

Driscoll: Iowa new rival?

November 2, 2011

Last week I went to The Bonfire and I sat down next to a couple of older folks. Being the nosey person I am, I listened to their conversation because they were talking about college football.
We will call them Bill and Bob...because I don't know their names.
They were talking about Taylor Martinez's inability to throw a football correctly and how the loss of Jared Crick for the season might be a good thing because he wasn't a force to be reckoned with.
Then the conversation went like this:
" Exactly who's our rival, Bob?" - Bill
" You know, I don't know. "- Bob
