Broken Bow - Custer County - you have some serious bragging rights.
October 16 Edison Mission Energy dedicated a 50-turbine wind farm, and city and county leaders joined energy developers from across the U.S. sitting front and center. Land owners filled in on the flanks.
The $145 million project know as Broken Bow LLC is located approximately three miles northeast of the city. The project, operated by Edison Mission Energy (EME) is capable of generating up to 80 megawatts of electricity, enough energy to meet the needs of about 25,000 homes in Nebraska.
Tackling childhood obesity, providing more nutritious meals for children - these are what you might call â€śhot buttonâ€ť topics right now. However, some caretakers of our youngest children are now trying to figure out how to provide those nutritious meals on less money.
Several Broken Bow in-home day care providers received letters from the food program a couple of weeks ago, informing them that the reimbursement they receive for the meals and snacks they provide is being cut - drastically cut.
Sandhills/Theford defeated Arthur County 2-0 (25-9, 25-13) and Hyannis 3-2 (23-25, 25-15, 25-17, 27-25, 15-8) to advance to the Sandhills Conference Volleyball Tournament semi finals. Their next match is against Brady Oct. 20.
Chantelle Milleson lead the way offensively with 11 kills while Madison Taylor chipped in 10 and Kelsey Higgins had seven.
Kaitlin Marten had 30 assists to go with 12 digs. Taylor Marten and Jacy Spencer had eight and seven digs respectively and Shaina Simonson had 10.
Sarah Miles had four serve aces.
