Red Willow County tourism director wears Buffalo Commons label as badge of honor

November 8, 2016

In the eyes of McCook’s and Red Willow County’s tourism director, a contention by Eastern professors that the Golden Plains should be abandoned to the buffalo and deer and antelope keeps providing the impetus to prove the learned Poppers wrong.

“The Poppers said we shouldn’t be here … that we shouldn’t be doing well. But we are,” tourism director Carol Schlegel told Red Willow County commissioners during their weekly meeting Monday morning. “We’re here to stay, and here to thrive.”
