Officials, friends want justice for Meshell

This is the second in a series on the death of Custer resident Meshell Will and the investigation into her death.

Angie (not her real name) thought it was strange when Meshell Will and her male companion left the Brookside Motel in Keystone that the room had been thoroughly cleaned. 

“The beds were made and the room was spotless,” she said. 

It was so unusual, she added, that the maids even made mention of it on their maid sheets.

“I may not be an investigator,” she said, “but all signs would lead me to think that he killed her there. I don’t know if they have come up with more information of what happened to her after I last saw her, but I will say she was not in a state to where she could’ve walked herself out of the motel.”

Brown sworn in as judge

The upstairs courtroom in the 1881 Courthouse Museum was packed with family members and friends as Matthew Brown was sworn in as Magistrate Judge last Friday, Aug. 22.

The ceremony started with Gary Enright, director of the 1881 Courthouse Museum, giving a short history of the museum and Judge Jeff Davis, who gave a short history of the three hangings in Custer County, only one of which was legal, he said.

Before Brown was sworn in, he addressed the crowd, saying that brevity is not my strong suit.

Five new teachers at CES

Second in a three-part series

Fourteen new faces can be found across the Custer School District this school year. Five of the new teachers will be at Custer Elementary School. 

Ryan Larsen, second grade teacher at Custer Elementary School, says his 6-year-old nephew and 4-year-old niece both played a big role in his career choice.

“I am very excited to have my own classroom and the chance to work with an amazing group of second graders,” he said. “I really enjoy working with younger students. Growing up, I had a couple teachers who played a huge role in my life and I would love for any of my students down the road to say that I helped make a difference in their life.”

What did we learn from Ferguson, Mo.?

In the days and weeks following the shooting death of an unarmed 18-year-old black man by a white police officer in Ferguson, Mo., we have seen an unbelievable series of events culminating in nighttime protesting and looting by members of the mostly-black community and some distant “criminal tourists” who just wanted to raise hell.

The ruckus all started because of so-called eye witness accounts that had officer Darren Wilson shooting victim Michael Brown, even though the nearly 300-pound teenager had his hands raised in the surrender mode. We found this story hard to believe from the get-go. Why would a six-year veteran of the police force risk his career and his future by shooting to death an unarmed person in broad daylight with people all around?
