Custer City approves hospital funding

“The new facility marks a new era for Custer. Let’s get it done!” said Custer City Mayor Jared Carson after the city council unanimously approved funding and deed transfer resolutions to finalize the partnership between the city, Regional Health and Custer Community Health Services, Inc. (CCHS).

The vote was taken at a special Friday, Feb. 5, 5 p.m. city council meeting before a packed council chambers. The first resolution to be passed assures the city’s financial support of the estimated $18.425 million total project cost to the tune of $4 million to be paid with 75 percent of a one- penny sales tax. The annual amount contributed by the city toward the project is not to exceed $347,000 for an estimated payoff time of the $4 million of about 11.5 years.

Girls herd Bison, are trampled by Dogies

For the second time this season, the Custer High School girls basketball team had little trouble with the Hot Springs Bison when it defeated the Bison 48-33 last Friday evening at the Armory.

Despite the comfortable win, Custer head coach Stephanie Ornelas said she wasn’t completely happy with the team’s effort, saying its offensive and defensive transition weren’t where they needed to be in the game.

“We didn’t play great. We need to work on our offensive and defensive transition. We didn’t move the ball as well as we have in prior games,”â��she said.â��“We had turnovers that were preventable. We weren’t really patient with our offense again. We tried to get a few quick hits on offense that weren’t there, and we were forcing things.”

Technology encourages community involvement

When it comes to video production, the possibilities are endless with the ever-growing technological options. And in this day and age, it’s rare to not find a school district utilizing them somehow. Custer School Different is no different. However, Chuck Arseneault, computer teacher at Custer Jr./Sr. High School, is taking it one step further.

Sports games, concerts, graduation and other events have been broadcast live over the local school television channel since 2005-06, according to Arseneault. However, streaming on the Internet is relatively new for the Custer School District. And with the number of widely available companies to host videos and content, streaming is easier than ever.

Cooperative hospital effort

The announcement last week of a new hospital and clinic in Custer is the culmination of months and months of wrangling and negotiations between Regional Health, Custer City and Custer Community Health Services, Inc., the local hospital board. For years, the latter has tried to figure out how to renovate the current 1962 hospital. It soon became apparent that putting a Band-aid approach on the aging facilities and lack of space problem was not going to cut it.
