New hospital to be built

The City of Custer is about to get a brand new hospital, courtesy of a partnership between the city, Regional Health and Custer Community Health Services, Inc. (CCHS).

Only a few years removed from trying unsuccessfully to remodel the current hospital and clinic in Custer, CCHS has shifted its focus, joining with the city and Regional Health to formulate a plan that will see a new hospital constructed just across the street and a little east on Montgomery Street from the current hospital, with ground breaking this spring and an opening date of 2018.

The plan was unveiled at the Feb. 1 meeting of the Custer City Council, with representatives from CCHS�and Regional Health both in attendance to share in the announcement.

Boys edge Patriots in double-overtime thriller

Sometimes, you just had to have been there.

The Custer High School basketball team and the visiting Douglas Patriots played a game for the ages last Thursday night at the Armory, as the teams exchanged nearly 20 ties and lead changes, heroic shots and monumental momentum swings in a 77-76 double-overtime Wildcat win.

In short, the game had everything.

“It was exhausting,” Custer head coach Paul Kelley said.â��“But at the same time, it was a lot of fun. The crowd was into it. That’s the beautiful thing about coaching in that gym. It’s so loud. It’s something you can’t replicate.”

Cub Scouts bring the fun and games

The carnival came to town Friday, thanks to three hard working Cub Scouts. 

Isaiah Savery, Lliam Dillon and Enoch Eyrich, all of Custer’s Cub Scout Pack 25, designed and ran a four-station carnival held Jan. 29 at the Custer YMCA Developmental Center in Custer. The carnival was a requirement for the three to earn their Bear Badge.

The boys thought up each of their games, discussed and planned the carnival over the course of a few weeks, meeting once a week. They also built each of their items and set them up the day of the carnival.

Keep cities urban and country rural

The country is a beautiful place to live and there are reasons the country is a rural, unpopulated and sometimes merciless place when it snows or rains. People new to country living fall in love with the lifestyle until a big snowstorm hits, making them homebound because they’re snowed in. 

When the realities of rural life in the winter set in and travel on country roads makes getting to the conveniences of a town or city difficult, residents new to the rural lifestyle set out to change living in the country. Once winter hits rural areas, the romanticized idea of being a country resident loses its once-appealing luster. People unaccustomed to bucolic realities want to change what makes the country, country, the first being the roads that connect the country to a town or city.
