Posted Apr 30/13 - The Story of Bill Wood Field

     On April 2, 1956, a $35,000 bond issue was resoundingly voted down by North Platte city voters.     Coincidentally or not, the election also saw three out of the four sitting councilmen get voted out in favor of a slate of candidates running on the platform of “tax reduction”. North Platte, with a population of approximately 15,000 at the time, had just seen the demise of the semi-pro league that featured the North Platte Plainsmen, a team supported by local businessmen, most notably York Hinman. Hinman, a local truck stop owner, was also involved at a different time with a team called the Hinman Oilers.
