Petersons have fifth generation cattle operation near Clifton

Barbara and Don Peterson and their son, Greg, all of rural Clifton, raise cattle and farm land that is now in its fifth generation of family ownership. Don Peterson’s family homesteaded the land in 1881, and the family has been farming the land ever since.

It was a tough calving season for Don and Greg Peterson, who farm together about seven miles north of Clifton. The father-son duo started calving heifers in early January and cows in mid-February. They don’t want to talk about the issues they had during the especially snowy, muddy and cold calving season, they joked, but they’ve already put the bulls in with the heifers for next year’s calf crop, so the winter didn’t break their spirit.

You have to have a short memory when you raise livestock, Don Peterson said.

Hanover Hospital requests county money to keep doors open

Three members of the Hanover Hospital board and administrator Brittni Oehmke met with the Board of County Commissioners on Monday to request a $50,000 grant to get the hospital to October when the announcement of a new physician is made. The board also requested another $150,000 in 2020 to keep the hospital on its feet.

“We’ve never come to the county commissioners pleading for money,” hospital board member Toby Bruna told the commissioners. “We’d like to take care of it ourselves. But we don’t really have a choice now.”

Mayhew, who is recently married and lives near Odell, Neb., spent four-and-a-half years as a residential appraiser in Emporia for Lyon County. He has been a police officer in Marysville the past 11 months.

“I enjoy the [appraisal] process,” Mayhew said. “I don’t mind working with the public. I enjoy real estate.”
