Part of Homer, NE Boy Scout camp could be sold


There's an offer on the table to sell parts of Boy Scout ranch near Homer, Nebraska.

John McCallister of the Boy Scouts Mid-America Council says the Thomas Ashford Scout Ranch is under utilized.  That's is one of the reasons, he said, they're looking to sell the 600 acre camp.

The other reasons, McCallister says, is that there are other alternatives, such as the Little Sioux Scout Camp near Blencoe, and that the facilities would need to be upgraded before it can be used.  McCallister says the unnamed buyer would purchase 360 acres and use it for hunting.  That decision is expected to be finalized by the summer.

The rest of the land, including the campground, may also be sold.
