Semi Burns South of Valentine

A semi from Houston Texas, loaded with pipe headed for the oil fields of North Dakota, was destroyed by fire south of Valentine on Highway 83 shortly before noon Thursday morning. According to the Cherry County Sheriffs Office, it was suspected that the turbo charger on the truck may have over heated and caught on fire, spreading to the rest of the truck which was completely destroyed. There were no injuries and Highway 83 had to be closed for a short time while emergency response units were on the scene.

   

Cherry County Commissioners Meet

The Cherry County Commissioners met yesterday for a regular meeting at the Cherry County Courthouse. A representative from Nebraska Department of Roads met with the board to discuss the Niobrara River Road project. Several years ago Senator Ben Nelson announced highway funding for 11 miles of county road from Sparks to Rocky Ford Camp. At this time there is not enough funding appropriated to do the entire project. It would cost an estimated 6 million dollars to pave the road and there is only 3.8 million dollars in the appropriation. It was suggested to do the construction in phases and spread the cost out. No action was taken on the issue.

In other business, the board approved the Library and Bookmobile inter local agreement for another year.

Cleve Trimble approached the board to ask for approval of a new plat for Snake River Homesites on his property southwest of Valentine. Numerous years ago, the area was surveyed and platted for development. Trimble has since resurveyed the existing lots and asked for approval for his conditional use permit. Approval was granted.
