Johnson County

Johnson County Road and Bridge Supervisor Scott Pehringer would like to announce to the public that about two miles of Wagon Box Road south of the Sheridan County Line will be closed to traffic on two separate occasions in the coming week.

The cold weather this past weekend didn't have much effect on the crowds who enjoyed the Buffalo High School Drama Department's production of “the Foreigner.”

Representative for State House District 40 Mike Madden and State Senator for District 22 Dave Kinskey attended the Buffalo Chamber After Hours event last Thursday at the Cowboy Carousel Center in Buffalo.

The evening was an opportunity for the public to meet the lawmakers from our area and discuss issues, problems or ideas with them before the opening of the Legislative Session in January.

Madden explained why he feels these types of events are important.

Some of the issues Madden discussed with constituents that night, he said, were Medicaid expansion and water programs in the state, especially Johnson County, both storage and rehabilitation projects.

Johnson County Public Information Officer Marcy Schueler released more information on the recent West Range Fire that burned 1,170 acres west of Buffalo.
