29 Year old Tylor Krogman of White River is scheduled to appear in a Cherry County Courtroom on January 25th facing charges in the death of Ed Mathiesen of rural Valentine last year. Krogman was charged with manslaughter, first degree assault and strangulation in the July 2015 death of Mr. Matheisen in a rural area north of Valentine. Krogman stated that he could not remember what happened the night of Mr. Mathiesens death, but he knew that he was involved in an altercation. The case was continued from the end of November at the request of his appointed counsel, Stephen Potter of Gothenburg. In December, Andrew Johnson withdrew as co-counsel for Mr Krogman.
Norden Bridge to be Replaced
Tuesday, 19 January 2016 11:46
The Norden Road will closed to traffic on Monday, Jan. 25, in anticipation of the demolition of the Norden Bridge across the Niobrara River on Jan. 28.
During a preconstruction conference in the Brown County Courthouse, engineer Gary Steele with Miller and Associates outlined the timeline for the more than $800,000 bridge replacement project with the Brown County Commissioners and Keya Paha County Commissioners.
The bridge replacement project is a joint venture between the two counties, with 90 percent of the funding for the bridge replacement coming from the state of Nebraska through federal bridge funds.
Signs will be placed at the intersection of the Norden Road with Highway 20 in Brown County and with the Norden Road intersection with Highway 12 in Keya Paha County notifying motorists of the road closure.
The new Norden Bridge will be constructed at the same site as the former bridge, forcing the closure of the road to through traffic for the duration of the project.
While a firm completion deadline of June 1 has been set, representatives from Simon Contractors said they anticipated completion of the new bridge well ahead of that date
Steele said all pertinent permits for the project have been obtained.
