District Court Judge Karin Noakes came before the Custer County Board of Supervisors Tuesday morning to plead her case for help.
Judge Noakes is requesting a full time secretary/baliff to travel with her to the counties she serves, and ease some of the burden of mounds of typing and paperwork she is responsible for. The request was brought before the Board of Supervisors at their last meeting, and discussion was tabled to this week.
The Custer County Board of Supervisors interviewed four candidates to fill the position of County Attorney, vacated by the appointment of Tami Schendt to County Court Judge.
Of the four candidates, all but one is either local or has local ties. She is Natalie Duden of Lincoln.
Duden is a new attorney, with no trial experience. She is currently licensed in the state of Illinois, and says she specifically chose that state because 27 other states honor that license. Nebraska is one of them.
â€śAnd I never want to have to take the bar exam again!â€ť she laughed.
