-The four basketball games scheduled for Saturday, December 8 between Gettysburg and Lyman County will start at 1:00 p.m. instead of 2:30 p.m.

-With this first major snowfall of the season, Hughes County warns residents to be prepared for winter storms.  The County Highway Department generally does not plow county roads until the blowing and drifting have reduced to an acceptable level.  Roads are not plowed during those conditions because it is ineffective and presents a danger both to the public and the plow operators.  That means you might not be able to reach town whenever you want.  Please keep that in mind as you make your winter plans.  Anytime a storm is predicted, residents should take steps to ensure they have sufficient medicine, food and supplies to last until the storm stops and the roads are cleared.  If you do have a legitimate emergency and need to reach town, contact 9-1-1 dispatch and they will make the arrangements.  If you need to reach town on short notice, you may want to make other arrangements if bad weather is predicted.  Country living comes with some inherent inconveniences, so please make sure you keep these in mind and make the necessary preparations in advance.
