Hammond Appointed to County Treasurer

The Cherry County Commissioners appointed Kathy Hammond as the County Treasurer to fill out the term of Jan Wiley who recently stepped down from the position that she held for numerous years. Hammond was one of three applicants interviewed for the position. Mrs. Hammond has worked in the county clerk’s office and the county justice department previously. Hammond will serve until the 2018 election and will have the opportunity to run for election to the office if she wants to.

Also at this week’s meeting, the commissioners gave approval for the Cherry County Tourism promotion board to investigate potential sites for a new convention center.

Local Beef in Schools

There is an effort underway to use locally raised beef in the school lunch program in the Valentine Community School system. Similar efforts have been very successful in other Nebraska schools including Mullen. Board member Craig O’kief appeared on the KVSH Comment program Wednesday morning to discuss details about the local effort. There will be some expense incurred to make this project happen. Anyone who would like to make a donation to the project can drop it off at the high school office or at Security First Bank where and account has been set up. Ranchers interested in donating beef can contact Craig O’kief at 402 376 4133 or Brent Nollett at 402 389 0439. Other board members include Tom Davis, Sam Day and Lizzie Medema.

The group will be selling raffle tickets at some Valentine home sporting events, with a drawing for ¼ beef, or ½ hog on December 20th. There will also be a rollover auction at Valentine Livestock on December 8th with proceeds to the Local Beef for school lunch project.
