  • Making Progress

    Engineers overseeing the U.S. Highway 34 – Missouri River bridge projects in western Mills County say substantial progress was made over the summer and they’re optimistic construction work will stay on schedule.

    “I think things are moving along fairly well. Obviously, it’s helped that we haven’t had a lot of rain the last couple summers,” Jensen Construction project engineer Landon Streit said. “The river’s been pretty stable. The only time it really came up was after Memorial Day.”

  • Fremont-Mills gets first district victory

    ESSEX - Score early and score often.

    That’s precisely what Fremont-Mills did as they defeated Essex/South Page Friday night 55-12 in 8-man District 8 football action.

    The Knights scored 34 points in the first half, 27 of which came in the first quarter of play, as they won their third game in a row.

    “It was a very physical game, but in the first half I thought we controlled the tempo and controlled all aspects of the game,” Fremont-Mills Head Coach Jeremy Christiansen said.
