On July 9, 2018 the Furnas County Sheriff’s Office received two arrested warrants for Colby G. Carpenter, 33, of Arapahoe, Furnas County, Nebraska. The two warrants were each for one count of possession of a deadly weapon by a prohibited person. The bond amount set on each warrant was $250,000 subject to 10%.
It’s another go around for Northwest Public School tax payers when it comes to the potential of adding a middle school to the district. 10 years ago a bond was brought to the votes for a middle school but was voted down. This time cost has increased, putting the bond up for voters at 11.5 million dollars. With most decisions when it comes to voting there are pluses and minuses, those that are in favor, and those that are not. Many are in favor of a middle school, but how it should happen is another issue.
According to the Northwest Middle School now website, for students in 6th, 7th, and 8th grade are only offered curriculum options in tech, band, and choir. If a Class B size middle school was built or implemented 12 more extra options would be added.
