The old adage, â€śit takes a village to raise a childâ€ť, has been taken to heart by one group of Broken Bow school district parents. The Broken Bow PTA has come a long way from the Harper Valley days Jeannie C. Riley sang about!
Thanks to the efforts of the Broken Bow PTA, the school district has been able to acquire technology equipment and support programs they may have otherwise not had the ability to do. Throughout just the past few years the group has raised literally thousands of dollars for the schools and spearheaded major projects such as the playground at Custer.
Custer County received word early this week that the effort to reduce the speed limit on West Highway 2 coming into Broken Bow was successful.

The plan is to reduce the speed limit from 65 mph to 55 mph at that mile marker.
