From the March 13, 1923 Campbell County Record:
Have your ever heard of a language that can be understood by all people of the earth? This is the claim made for Esperanto, the universal language and Mrs. J.A. Nelson of this place who is a student of that language has demonstrated to her own satisfaction that such is possible. Mrs. Nelson took up the study of Esperanto six months go and has mastered it sufficiently to carry on correspondence with other students throughout the world. She has received post cards and letters from Austria, Italy, France, Japan, Mexico, Bulgaria and England as well as from many places in the United States, all of them written in Esperanto in order to familiarize the students with the language and to show how a common language can be used by all peoples.
From the March 24, 1966 News Record:
Editorial: It is with great pleasure that the News-Record joins the community in extending congratulations to the Campbell County High School basketball team and its coaching staff for concluding their 1965-66 season by winning the class A state championship. This is the second team to bring this honor to CCHS since the school was started. Both in 1958 and again this year, the feeling of pride has been felt by everyone as a team has achieved its best. Sportsmanship is one of the fine qualities that the Camel fans have seen all year in the Gillette squads. One didn’t particularly notice it until they played some other team which was making themselves obvious with some unsportsmanlike displays at referees’ calls. Much expression can be put into a boy’s arm when he signals the foul has been called on him, and we have seen nothing from the Camels but a straight arm held up for the scorers’ bench to identify the call.
From the March 15, 1988 News Record:
The blizzard of 1988 had much in common with the legendary Blizzard of ’84 — but to a much lesser degree. On April 25, 26, 27 in 1984, an unpredicted blizzard shut down Campbell County, resulting in two deaths, 55 people reported missing and 100 people stranded. Between 24 and 36 inches of snow fell throughout the three-day storm, whipped into a “blinding hellbroth” by winds that reached 64 mph. The National Weather Service had forecast the blizzard conditions Thursday and Friday in 1988. Limited visibility occurred after winds reaching 50 mph tore at the 6 to 10 inches of snow that fell. But no deaths were reported, although nine people were stranded in their cars and trucks on Gurley Avenue, Interstate 90 and near Douglas.
