Information Sought on Killing of Mountain Lion

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is seeking information on a female mountain lion that was illegally shot and left in the Pine Ridge National Forest south of Chadron in Dawes County.

An individual hunting in the area reported finding the mountain lion, which was estimated to be about a year and a half old, late last week. Officials immediately began an investigation and have collected evidence at the scene. They believe the animal was shot in either late November or early December.

Anyone with information related to this incident is encouraged to call Game and Parks or the Nebraska Wildlife Crime Stoppers at 1-800-742-7627.  Hotline callers may remain anonymous and could be eligible for a reward.

 

 

Resolve to give blood in January for National Blood Donor Month

The American Red Cross asks eligible blood donors to make a resolution to give blood regularly in 2015, beginning with National Blood Donor Month in January.

National Blood Donor Month recognizes the importance of giving blood and platelets while honoring those who roll up a sleeve to help patients in need. It has been observed during January since 1970, and that’s no coincidence. Winter is an especially difficult time to collect enough blood to meet patient needs. Unpredictable winter weather can result in blood drive cancellations, and seasonal illnesses, like the flu, may cause some donors to be unable to make or keep blood donation appointments.

Donors of all blood types are needed, especially those with O negative, A negative and B negative. With a shelf life of 42 days, red blood cells must be constantly replenished to maintain an adequate supply for patients. Individuals who come out to give blood Jan. 1 through Jan. 4 will receive a long-sleeve Red Cross T-shirt, while supplies last.

To learn more about donating blood and to schedule an appointment, download the Red Cross Blood Donor App, visit redcrossblood.org or call 1-800-RED CROSS (1-800-733-2767).

Icy Roads Cause Two Accidents

 

Law enforcement agencies investigated two rollover accidents reported on Highway 83 about 20 miles South of Valentine last night. The first report came about 10:40 PM when an SUV rolled due to icy roads. At least one person was transported to the Cherry County Hospital by Ambulance with undetermined injuries. About one half hour later, a Cherry County sheriffs deputy was injured when responding to the scene of the original accident. Deputy Tim McBride lost control on icy roads and rolled the cruiser. Officer Mcbride was also transported by ambulance and was treated and released at the Cherry County Hospital. The cruiser was considered a total loss.

 

"Fill An Empty Stocking" Project in Valentine

Leo Brinda Post 90 and the Sons of the American Legion in Valentine are sponsoring the annual Fill An Empty Stocking and Share the Gift of Reading projects. Parents and guardians who wish to sign up their children need to fill out the forms at Union Bank & Trust on Highway 20 in Valentine on or before December 15.

A Christmas tree poster will be placed in the Veterans Club window, with each un-adopted family of children represented. Each note will display the family number, gender and age of each in that family. Local folks may choose a number and adopt a "family of children". Please phone 402-376-2443 to adopt on or BEFORE December 15. After adopting, select gifts of your choice, wrap them, mark them with age, gender, and family number; and then drop them off on the porch at 427 North Main Street.

The deadline to turn in "adopted family donations" and books is Thursday, December 17.

Books are also needed for children of all ages (1-18). Please donate books in new or in very good condition that you know your own children or grandchildren would enjoy. Drop boxes for books are located at the Valentine Library Lobby, Plains Trading Company Booksellers, and the Valentine Elementary School. These books will be sorted and distributed to the children who benefit from the "Fill An Empty Stocking" project chaired by the American Legion Family.

Delivery of these Christmas gifts and books will take place on Saturday, December 20 at 8 am. For more information, please phone 402-376-2443. Post 90 and the Sons are hopeful that no children will be left out and are grateful for the community's help with this annual holiday project that fills the heart of both the giver and the child.
