Throwback Thursday from January 7, 1999

August 6, 2015

This week is a sad one for us here at the Custer County Chief. Deb McCaslin is retiring this Friday after many years. So, I found it only fitting to throwback to one of the first articles she wrote for the Custer County Chief.

Though Deb will still be around to write articles here and there, the news just won't be quite the same.

Thank you Deb for everything you have done for me, my family, my friends, the surrounding communities and for the Custer County Chief. We wish you the best in your retirement.
