Behavior Management CEO appointed to Adelstein’s seat PIERRE –Alan Solano of Rapid City has been appointed to the remaining term of the District 32 State Senate seat held by Stan Adelstein, who resigned late last month for health reasons. The Gov. Dennis Daugaard appointment took effect immediately and Solano will be in Pierre on Tuesday, for the start of the 2014 Legislative Session. Solano is the chief executive officer of Behavior Management Systems, Inc., a provider of behavioral and mental health services.

On December 29, 1890, 123 years ago, colonial US soldiers murdered Lakota folks near Wounded Knee in South Dakota, based principally on Lakota religious practices. In 1971, Alice Black Horse from Montana told me the following story of her survival at that massacre. I don't know how many of you knew Alice Black Horse. She hung out in Denver back in the early days of AIM and was a constant supporter and advisor. At that time she was in her late eighties, still had that old time "camp woman" look and, privately, was full of angles of thought and possessed that raw, Pine Ridge humor, you know where they tease with that gravelly "Yhah-uh" in their voices. She had been married to a man from Poplar (I think). At conferences in Denver or Rapid City or Minneapolis we would sit together, drink coffee and make eye-contact fun of people who were acting "off." She was straight on with everyone, the Bellecourts, the Means', Carter Camp, Dennis Banks, all the attorneys, and numerous "loose cannons" hanging at the periph ...

December 3, 1942 Kenneth Scissons awarded the Distinguished Service Cross The Rapid City Daily Journal printed an amazing story of a Native American soldier fighting in North Africa during World War II. On December 3, 1942, the British Commandos attempted to take over the airfield at Bizerte, Tunisia, North Africa. Pvt. Kenneth Scissions was one of several South Dakota National Guardsmen who volunteered to support the mission. Private Kenneth C. Scissons, a native of Rosebud, had joined the H & S Company, 109th Engineer Battalion in Rapid City on Dec. 14, 1936. He was called to active duty with his unit on Feb. 10, 1941. After the unit landed in North Africa on Nov. 8, 1942, things were evidently not exciting enough for some of the young South Dakota soldiers so when the Commandos asked for volunteers, several signed up. The newspaper account reads: The fabulous exploit of Sgt. Kenneth Scissons of Rapid City in killing 10 Germans during a four-minute engagement near Bizerte in Nor ...
Fact of the Day: Mount Rushmore The Mount Rushmore National Memorial is a colossal sculpture in the Black Hills of South Dakota, about 25 miles southwest of Rapid City. The four United States Presidents whose portraits are carved in the granite are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln. These four symbolize the first 150 years of the United States and represent, respectively, the nation's independence, democratic process, leadership in world affairs, and principle of equality. Work began in 1927 under the guidance of American sculptor Gutzon Borglum and applying the skills of some 400 workers; it was completed in 1941. Each head is about 60 feet tall. The most spectacular program at Mount Rushmore is the evening lighting ceremony, held in the new amphitheater at 9:00 PM sharp.
6 is the number I got, so here are six things about me: 1.) I dropped out of high school when I was 15, due to being bullied & having very low self-esteem. 2.) I grew up with my father until I was 14, then ran away to my mom. 3.) I attempted suicide when I was 15 & ended up being hospitalized for five days. 4.) I don't like aggression. 5.) I am not the same as I used to be, as to when I lived in Rapid City, South Dakota. 6.) I am very proud of who I am today. LMS & I will give you a number.
I am from South Dakota, where we can kind of use our hand as a map, where Brock Lesnar, Adam Vinateiri, Tom Daschle, Tom Brokaw, and January Jones are from. Our vacations include Sioux Falls, Rapid City, and camping. We are an equally divided state with two vastly different cultures- The West and the East - We LOVE Hoot wine. We have foods like Walking Tacos, Frybread, Kuchen, Dakota Style Chips, and sloppy joes. We know THE RIVER as an actual place not a stream or a body of water. We play pinochle, swim in lakes and rivers, fish, hunt, and camp. We bake with soda, and drink pop. We measure distance in hours and not minutes. We can drive 65 mph in a foot of snow or a blizzard and not even flinch and still have school. We have a Corn Palace, and no one else can say that! Repost if you are from South Dakota!

A Record-Setting Blizzard Killed 75,000 Cows and You Might Not Have Even Heard About It Oct. 10, 2013 9:39am Liz Klimas Ranchers are still digging out thousands of their cattle that became buried in a record-setting snowstorm in South Dakota late last week and over the weekend. One would think the death of 75,000 cows by upwards of five feet of snow might get some national attention, but as one blogger observed, it has taken some time for the news of the precipitation massacre to reach outside of local media. “I searched the national news for more information. Nothing. NotA pickup drives on Highway 44 as heavy snow falls in Rapid City, S.D., Oct. 4, 2013. A rare fierce October snow storm rolled out over the central Rocky Mountains on Friday, downing trees and forcing closures of state offices and more than 200 miles of Interstate 90 across parts of Wyoming and South Dakota, state highway officials said. Up to 30 inches of snow was forecast to drop in parts of the Black Hills region of western South Dako ...

WATER IS SACRED...MOTHER EARTH IS SACRED...SHUT DOWN THE NU-KILLERS! "On Oct. 7th Powertech Uranium Mining water permit hearing begins at the Ramkota in Rapid City. Powertech is seeking 551 gallons of water per minute from the Madison Aquifer and 8,500 gallons of water per minute from the Inyan Kara Formation totaling 13 million gallons of water PER DAY for 20 years to mine the toxic yellow-cake in the Southern Black Hills. Rapid City’s 2012 water usage only came to 11.35 million gallons per day according to City of Rapid City Water Division’s report. In other words, Powertech would use more water per day then one small city. Unbelievable that South Dakota is even thinking of committing water suicide with this one!! Supporters of Powertech, mainly those in the Edgemont area where the proposed mines will be located, have been promised a few jobs, but what good is a job if you don’t have clean drinking water? Powertech and their supports are not concerned that the in-situ leach mining will not only de ...

The Judge Rules at Last On September 26, 2013, a 47 page document was filed in the United States District Court of South Dakota by Judge Viken in the case of Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, Inc. (SMRI) vs. Rushmore Photo and Gift (RPG). I have read the 47 pages and, in my opinion, it is extremely in favor of RPG. The judge wants there to be a jury trial to determine if SMRI should have their registration of the word “Sturgis” revoked and if they obtained the registration by fraud. The trial will take place in Rapid City and the citizens that make up the jury will come from that area. This trial will most likely not start before six months from now. It could take much longer and be one or two years before the trial starts. I asked Brian Neiman, owner of RPG, why this information has not appeared in the newspaper yet, as I expected to see it in the weekend news. Brian said that “My attorney had given a statement to the press and they are waiting for SMRI to respond so they can give both sides represen ...
Rapid City woman dies in one car New Underwood Road accident HEREFORD – A Rapid City woman died in a one-vehicle crash on the New Underwood Road about a mile north of Hereford on Monday, Sept. 30. The accident happened at approximately 7:30 p.m. Cherron Sitting Crow, 26, was a passenger in a 2003 Buick Park Avenue driven south by William James Chasing Hawk, Sr., 27, of Eagle Butte. The vehicle veered off the right shoulder, returned to the roadway and traveled into the east ditch, where it rolled. Sitting Crow was thrown from the vehicle and died at the scene. Her 18-month-old son received life-threatening injuries. Chasing Hawk received minor injuries. None of the occupants were wearing seat belts. No further information is immediately available. The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating. Meade County Sheriff’s Office assisted. Members of the Sturgis Volunteer Fire Department and Sturgis Ambulance and Rescue also responded.

Day 3, Rapid City, South Dakota (Written by David Takeuchi): Where am I? For a few seconds, I lost my sense of time and place. I sit at a bar with 30 some odd seats and no one is around me. Loud chatter comes from the main dining room, but I am alone at the bar. When I walked in the waitress and the bartender kept looking at me – actually looking at my shirt. Could it be they have not seen someone who looks like me? Is it the reason why no one is sitting near me at the bar? Before I can get indignant, I recall what Amy told me a few minutes before I ventured to get dinner. Just remember, she said, you are wearing a t-shirt with the saying, “No Worry Beef Curry.” What does no worries mean outside of Hawaii? My indignation calms. I am sipping a beer, waiting for my food order. I looked at my phone for email messages and I looked up and see my reflection in the bar mirror. Where am I? I am in Sanfords Pub and Grill in Rapid City, South Dakota. I am here not because Sanfords has any Michelin ratings but ...

activists: Buy Wounded Knee, face protests Land adjacent to the site of the 1890 Wounded Knee Massacre is currently for sale by landowner James Czywczynski. Czywczynski says he is not concerned about the possibility of protests if the land is developed. April 28, 2013 6:30 pm • Daniel Simmons-Ritchie Journal staff The potential sale of one of the most historically notorious sites in South Dakota history could come with the state's biggest caveat: buy Wounded Knee and plan to build there, and face the wrath of protesters. That message is being sent by Native American activists as a Rapid City man prepares to sell a 40-acre parcel at the site of the Wounded Knee Massacre. The property, located in the heart of the Pine Ridge Reservation, is in the vicinity of where 300 Native Americans were killed by the U.S. military on Dec. 29, 1890. Tensions have been simmering in Indian Country ever since the landowner, James Czywczynski, 75, announced his plan to sell the land two months a ...

Fresh “POOP”! Or at least it's recent info compared to my last post of 12 March... ;-) I was fortunate enough, because of my previous involvement with “The Dirty Bird” funny car to be invited to attend the inaugural test & tune sessions for the “new” car at what we call “Dinwiddie” or Virginia Motorsports Park to others... The car's new owner, Steve Dale from Rapid City, South Dakota rented the track for the day. Most of his crew members are from Roanoke, VA – so, they decided to test & tune 'here'... :) Sure made my day! A lot has changed on what all of us knew as ”The Dirty Bird“ funny car both visually & mechanically. The “new” car now has a '69 GTO carbon-fiber body, fresh chutes, better blower, bigger magneto, bigger fuel pump with a fuel management system too. What IS the same, is the engine – of which the short block & valve train (including cam selection) was originally designed and built by Jim Lehart at Central Virginia Machine Service. :-0) Thankfully - they kept t . ...

Casting a broad shadow over the state political landscape, State Representative Stace Nelson says South Dakota politics is every bit as dirty as the Chicago-style backroom dealings of Washington D.C. under Barack Obama, complete with smear tactics, intimidation, lying and personal insult. Nelson is eying a run for the GOP U.S. Senate nomination against former Governor Mike Rounds, whom Nelson credits with helping lay the groundwork for ObamaCare in South Dakota. Exclusive coverage with Shad Olson on NewsCenter1, Rapid City.

From ascap: Pandora announced last week that it had purchased a traditional radio station, KXMZ-FM, located in Rapid City, South Dakota. This is a sham. Pandora acquired the station as their latest attempt to reduce the already far too low amounts they pay for the use of ASCAP members' creative works - your music - to generate hundreds of millions of dollars for their online music streaming business. The fact is Pandora is making millions of dollars streaming songwriters' music online, but paying a very low rate for it. A mere 4% of Pandora's total revenue is spent on licensing public performance rights from songwriters and composers. And yet Pandora is going to great lengths to try to pay even less - suing songwriters in federal rate court and now buying an FM radio station in South Dakota. But their argument just isn't reasonable. You don't have to be an expert to understand internet radio and traditional AM/FM radio use music and generate revenue in very different ways. ASCAP has negotiated plenty of d ...
Pandora recently purchased radio station KXMZ-FM in Rapid City, South Dakota, in a bid to lower the licensing fees it pays songwriters and composers for public performances of their work. Pandora says this will help music creators and listeners, but the facts tell a much different story.

June 11, 1972 – Rapid City Flood of 1972 On June 9, 1972 the worst natural disaster ever experienced in South Dakota occurred when a storm dropped 14 inches of rain in most parts of the Black Hills. The Rapid City flood of 1972 happened in a matter of hours as Rapid Creek swelled into a raging river. The fast water removed many houses from their foundations and many houses, with residents still in them, were seen floating down the creek. Cars were caught in the water and some floated for more than a mile. 236 people died in the flood. Fortunately for the citizens of Rapid City, most of the South Dakota National Guard units were at annual training in Camp Rapid or the immediate area. Called to emergency flood rescue and security missions the members used the guard equipment to rescue people caught in trees and on top of houses. Local citizens praised the National Guard soldiers for the heroic efforts on that night. By June 11th the known death toll from the Rapid City flood was nearly 20 ...

Today is the 41st anniversary of the Rapid City Flood in 1972. My father-in-law was a police officer in Rapid City, South Dakota, the time and endured a terrible but heroic ordeal which shaped his future life and physical abilities. The reservist assigned to work with him was lost that night when their vehicle was swept away, and my father-in-law nearly as well but for his quick thinking and pure luck. When my father-in-law got swept down a lake he saved himself when he crashed into a telephone and handcuffed himself to it. His evacuations and rescues leading up to that moment earned awards and medals typically handed out to one's relatives, and we continue to be so proud of him.
On this Day in Weather History...9 June In 1953, it was meteorological mayhem in Massachusetts when the worst tornado in the history of New England tore across the state. The massive F4, which some believe may have been an F5, possessed a track 46 miles long, averaged three quarters of a mile wide, lasted 1 hour and 24 minutes and obliterated everything in its path. Hardest hit was Worcester where, 40 miles west of Boston, the tornado reached 1 mile wide. In all 90 were killed, of which 60 were in Worcester, 1,288 injured and around $52 million damage resulted; the 2002 equivalent of nearly $350 million! Debris from the tornado landed in Boston and adjacent areas of the Atlantic.The tornado mangled steel towers built to withstand winds of 375 mph. At the time, it was the costliest tornado in U.S. history. In 1972, a cloudburst along the eastern slopes of the Black Hills of South Dakota produced as much as 14 inches of rain resulting in the Rapid City flash flood disaster. The rains, which fell in about fo ...
Day 6 on trip: Spent most of the day at the hospital, hanging out with a couple of local kids who's mother just had a baby. Finally left the hospital at about 6:45 PM Central time. Went over the Missouri river, didn't see the badlands nor did we stop at Wall Drug (I think my parents are taking enough drugs right now). We are now in Rapid City, South Dakota... got here before 10:30 Mountain time. This place seems alright. There is a casino across the street from our hotel, but it only has maybe 20 slot machines. A little more exciting than Mitchel.
Finished making plans for our trip to South Dakota to the Midwest/Badlands/Black Hills this summer over the 4th of July.

Highlights include, driving through Mitchell and the Corn Palace, the Badlands, Rapid City, Custer State Park, Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Deadwood, Lead and Sturgis.
I highly doubt natives go around disrespecting Christian religion and beliefs. So why are there flyers around Rapid City, South Dakota calling Native American ceremonies witchcraft and offering 10,000 for a flash photo of a yuwipi "demon"?

And, of course, drove into Rapid City for Starbucks! This is one of our favorite places and should be on your bucket list if you haven't been. An absolutely awesome and beautiful place.

Leaders from 11 Native American tribes stormed out of a meeting with US federal officials in Rapid City, South Dakota, to protest the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which they say will lead to ‘environmental genocide.’ Native Americans are opposed to the 1,179-mile (1,897km) Keystone XL project - a system to transport tar sands oil from Canada and the northern United States to refineries in Texas - for various reasons, including potential irreversible damage to sacred sites, pollution, and water contamination. Although the planned pipeline would not pass directly through any Native American reservation, tribes in proximity to the proposed system say it will violate their traditional lands and that the environmental risks of the project are simply too great. Russ Girling, CEO of TransCanada, the company that hopes to build the pipeline, has promised in the past that Keystone XL will be “the safest pipeline ever built.” The Indian groups, as well as other activist organizations, doubt the claim, say ...

Friends Relatives here is update: (via Indigenous Council Omaha NE) Thursday, May 16, 2013 BREAKING NEWS: Rapid City, South Dakota, TRIBES WALK OUT of Federal Keystone XL Consultation This morning at 9:00 a.m. the United States Department of State attempted to hold what they call a consultation with tribal representatives of the Great Plains Red Nations regarding the effects of the Keystone XL Pipeline on sacred sites. However, tribal, traditional and community members from the Lakota, Ponca, and Pawnee declared the meeting a sham. Oglala Sioux Tribal President Bryan Brewer made a statement dismissing the gathering as a sham because no leadership of the United States was present. Instead Obama’s administration sent low level clerks to meet with our tribal and treaty leaders. This disrespect to the provisions of the 1868 Ft. Laramie Treaty between the Lakota, Arapaho, Cheyenne and the United States, as well as violations to International law and the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, will n ...

Remarks delivered by Jack Marsh at memorial celebration for Al Neuharth, Friday, May 17, University of South Dakota, Vermillion. Welcome everyone. I’m Jack Marsh, president of the Al Neuharth Media Center. Working for Al Neuharth, and being responsible for initiatives bearing his name, has been the greatest privilege and the highlight of my career. Al Neuharth was a South Dakotan through and through. His first directive to me as a new employee: Create reasons for him and his young family to leave Florida and visit South Dakota for what he called “reality checks.” Al came back a half dozen times a year, often accompanied by sons and daughters – visiting Vermillion, Sioux Falls, Eureka, the Badlands, Rapid City, the beautiful Black Hills, Mount Rushmore and Crazy Horse. In South Dakota, we were familiar with a relaxed, unpretentious Al Neuharth. He always insisted on taking the wheel, pumping his own gas and setting his own pace. When he wasn’t in a hurry, he got off the Interstate ...

This is the introduction from my book, Earning Your Own Respect. This book is currently out of print but is available as a used book from Amazon. Link to order it follows this excerpt. _ ONCE UPON A TIME, somewhere near Rapid City, South Dakota, in a place called the Gold Nugget Motel, in a meeting room full of self-help explorers, I heard the author Sharon Wegsheider-Cruse say, “We go to therapy to live. We don’t live to go to therapy.” I like that idea, and to a large extent, that is what this book is about. I have been a psychotherapist for more than fifteen years, and I am extremely grateful for having landed in such an interesting, challenging, and rewarding career. I owe much of the quality of my life now to therapists who have helped me along the way, both professionally and personally. One of the most important lessons we can offer the next generation is that knowing how, when, and to whom to reach for help is strength, not weakness, and that being aware and respectful of the many aspects of ...

Please read this story. It is a copy of several FB posts that a friend, Michael Walker sent yesterday. Mike is the drummer for the band ARANDA who I have posted about on here before. They are wrapping up a long tour of opening for Daughtry and 3 Doors Down. All of my friends in Aranda are Christians and when not on the road play the music at one of the LifeChurch.tv campuses. I have consolidated all 5 messages into one with Mike's permission. Michael Walker Part 1 of story I downloaded the You Version Bible about 5 days ago. Since then, I read the Book of Matthew, Mark and Luke. I started reading because I'm in a middle of a crisis. There is a possibility that I might be starting a new chapter in my life.

With February 27th 2013 marking the 40th Anniversary of the Take Over of Wounded Knee, I would like to share the Truth as to When United Native Americans SAVED the American Indian Movement out at Wounded Knee in 1973. “I was also in Wounded Knee for four days.” They lifted the siege the day I got there so I was there legally. While I was there I organized an office in South Dakota. “An interesting thing—while in Wounded Knee, I pulled a sneak on them [federal authorities]: A week earlier the Army had given a deadline and threatened to remove the Indians by force. I flew back to Rapid City, South Dakota, the closest big city to Wounded Knee, and I held a press conference where I said I had 400-500 Indian people with me and they were all armed and ready to come to the aid of the Indians in Wounded Knee and it was all just a bluff!” “Five O’clock came and went and the Indians weren’t kicked out after all.” Dr. Lehman L. Brightman
'Special Delivery,' is a video documentary telling the story of Scott Parsons, a pizza delivery driver brutally beaten during an ambush robbery that only ended when he pulled out his concealed pistol and pulled the trigger. For his trouble, and despite a shattered right leg that required multiple surgeries to repair, Parsons was fired by Pizza Hut for violating a corporate policy prohibiting employees from having guns in their vehicles. Aired over two nights in February, 2013, this is the full documentary produced by Emmy-winning journalist, Shad Olson for NewsCenter1, KNBN-TV, the NBC affiliate in Rapid City, South Dakota.
Something my son Gabe wrote that shows why I am so proud of the strong family of which I am a part "Ten years ago tomorrow, I had to say the four hardest words I've ever said: "I just got fired." I'd been at my job at KNBN-TV in Rapid City, South Dakota for a little more than four years. I'd been married for 19 months. We had a five-year-old, a six-month-old and a mortgage that had 28 years and 10 months left on it. Most who are reading this don't work in TV, but for those who do or did, you'll know that we weren't sending any extra money to that mortgage company every month. We weren't throwing a bunch in a savings account. It was paycheck to paycheck and now there was no paycheck (at least not from me). I don't really remember what I thought that day. I do remember we had already planned to have a (now former) co-worker over for dinner. We stuck to that plan. My new plan was to go buy enough beer to not care that I now had no job. My wife talked me out of that part of the plan. The rest of the day, I wa ...

Your finger may soon replace your credit card News24 | 22-Feb 20:19 PM Rapid City: Futurists have long proclaimed the coming of a cashlesssociety, where dollar bills and plastic cards are replaced by fingerprint and retina scanners smart enough to distinguish a living, breathing account holder from an identity thief. What they probably didn't see coming was that one such technology would make its debut not in Silicon Valley or MIT but at a small state college in remote western South Dakota, 25 miles from Mount Rushmore. Two shops on the School of Mines and Technology campus are performing one of the world's first experiments in Biocryptology - a mix of biometrics (using physical traits for identification) and cryptology (the study of encoding private information). Students at the Rapid City school can buy a bag of potato chips with a machine that non-intrusively detects their hemoglobin to make sure the transaction is legitimate. Researchers figure their technology would provide a critical safeguard again ...
Bald Eagle Awareness Events Cancelled PIERRE, S.D. - Inclement weather has grounded eagle awareness events planned in South Dakota this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The Raptor Center in Minneapolis had planned to travel to South Dakota to provide educational programming as part of Bald Eagle Awareness Week. However, the potential for bad roads has made travel ill-advised and the group will not be making the trip. The cancelled events include an event at The Outdoor Camps-East in Sioux Falls on Thursday, school presentations in Madison on Friday, and at the Pierre Ramkota on Saturday. An event in Rapid City will go forward as planned. The Outdoor Campus-West is hosting a "drop-in" day from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. MST on Saturday. All ages can participate in hands-on stations featuring all things birds-of-prey. Black Hills Raptor Center will participate in the drop-in day and conduct a public presentation with live birds of prey at 1 p.m. MST.
Reminiscing this am on fb with a my Aunt Becky over funny times when we were in my Aunt Judys beloved South Dakota. My mom & here 10 brothers & sisters grew up in Rapid City. My grandparenrs later moved to Riverside, Cali around the mid 50's.

The Covert War Against Native Americans by Ward Churchill There is a little considered aspect of the covert means through which the United States maintains its perpetual drive to exert control over the territory and resources of others. It concerns, however, matters internal rather than external to the geographical corpus of the U.S. itself. It seems appropriate to quote a man deeply involved in the struggle for African liberation, Kwame Toure' (formerly known as Stokley Carmichael). In a speech delivered at the Yellow Thunder demonstrations in Rapid City, South Dakota, on October 1, 1982, he said: We are engaged in a struggle for the liberation of ourselves as people. In this, there can be neither success nor even meaning unless the struggle is directed toward the liberation of our land, for a people without land cannot be liberated. We must reclaim the land, and our struggle is for the land-first, foremost, and always. We are people of the land. So in Africa, when you speak of "freeing the land," you ar ...

Sermon on 3 Epiphany C: Nehemiah 8:1-3, 5-6, 8-10; Luke 4:14-21 Preached 1-27-2013 @ Messiah, Marquette, by Pastor Dave Van Kley Returning Home Have you ever been away from home for an extended period? I don’t mean a day or a week but for weeks or months or years? I was away for nearly six weeks this summer in Colombia. I often felt like a displaced person, a fish out of water, a polar bear in the tropics. My skin was shockingly white. My Spanish was woefully inadequate. The trees were different. The flowers were different. The smells were different. Arlene and all of you were far, far away. I found myself longing to be home. During the years we lived in South Dakota, we also felt out of place. The congregation was great and the Black Hills are beautiful, but they were never our Black Hills. Our home was always here, in the Upper Peninsula. When I’d ski in the ponderosa pines, I’d find myself dreaming of hardwood forests. When we’d go to Rapid City to shop, e ...
We need a program in Alabama similar to the one in South Dakota, WHOSE IN? With the evidence and research on FASD we need solution. Sioux Falls, S.D. — South Dakota’s largest medical facility and the Oglala Sioux Tribe have announced a partnership to expand a program aimed at preventing fetal alcohol syndrome and other alcohol-related problems affecting Native American children by intervening before their mothers become pregnant. The program is already working with women on the Pine Ridge Reservation and in Rapid City, where counselors say it has been successful in decreasing binge drinking and reducing unintended pregnancies by encouraging contraception use. Some of the women in the program once consumed an entire bottle of hard liquor, the equivalent of about 17 drinks, in one day. Others opted for a 40 oz. malt liquor, the equivalent of about five drinks. A few drank while previously pregnant. “A lot of it when they’re young, it’s kind of the norm and when they’re hanging around with their ...

...and I'm officially the last person in South Dakota is see that it is Gotham vs Rapid City in the Dark Knight Rises.
The morning was cool and crisp as I began my hike up the trail to the top of Terry Peak, and although it was late October, the sun was just beginning to warm the South Dakota mountain side. I had been looking forward to the solitude of the mountains all week and relished the thought of two days away from the office. I adjusted my backpack, picked up my walking stick and set off at an easy gait. Being the youngest member of an old line Rapid City law firm was an honor to be sure, but it also meant that the usual and mundane cases were thrown my way, and for that reason this weekend of climbing would take my mind off the sometimes boring humdrum of the weekly grind. While the Black Hills mountains are no Pikes Peak, they can quickly tucker you out if you're not in climbing shape, and as such, after about one hour I was ready to take a break, pulling off the trail to look for a good spot to rest my legs. As I sat on a rock eating a banana, I heard a giggle coming from a thicket about thirty yards farther ...

SOUTH DAKOTA: "South Dakota Seeing Big Increase in STD Cases" Rapid City Journal (12.04.12):: Associated Press South Dakota has had an increase in sexually transmitted diseases, which is being blamed on meeting partners online, a changing population, and a relaxed view of risks. Chlamydia rates have doubled from the late 1990s, and gonorrhea is twice as common as it was five years ago. There have been 17 cases of syphilis this year, compared to no cases reported last year. Two physicians from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) spent two weeks in South Dakota at the invitation of the Northern Plains Tribal Epidemiology Center in Rapid City and officials on the Pine Ridge and Cheyenne River reservations. As a result of the visit, health officials in South Dakota will treat gonorrhea using expedited partner therapy, in which a clinician provides a patient with a sexually transmitted disease a drug prescription for a sex partner without having examined the partner.

From today's Trains News Wire: "CP seeking operator for west end of Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern By Steve Glischinski Published: December 4, 2012 MINNEAPOLIS – Canadian Pacific said today it is seeking interested parties to take over the west end of the former Dakota, Minnesota & Eastern. CP would divest all the DM&E lines west of the division point of Tracy, Minn., which would include all its trackage in South Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming. The railroad said it was 'inviting expressions of interest from prospective partners' for the lines. Included are approximately 660 miles of former Chicago & North Western track that was sold to DM&E in 1986. It includes the lines from Tracy to Rapid City, S.D.; north of Rapid City to Colony, Wyo.; and south of Rapid City to Dakota Jct., Neb. Also included are three South Dakota branch lines: a 27-branch from Redfield to Mans ...

“DEAD MAN'S HAND” The story is that “Wild Bill” Hickok was playing poker in Deadwood, South Dakota on August 2 of 1876; he had his back to the room and not the wall. Wild Bill, who was said to carry a large number of firearms on his person, was paying five card draw and was dealt two pair, black aces over black eights. The identity of the fifth card remains a matter of debate to this day, but Hickok’s fate was sealed nonetheless. Crooked Nose McCall came up from behind and shot the famous gun fighter and lawman in the head. There are many who think this hand is just an oddity and there are those who will never play it, especially in the gold country west of Rapid City.
To Indian Country. Read the article in indianz.com about the proposal to mine uranium next to the Pine Ridge Reservations using double the amount of ground water used by Rapid City and returning the contaminated wastewater underground thereby contaminating the acquifer that serves western South Dakota. The cancer rate among Navajos who have tribal have uranium leases is very high.
Hi folks, Just to let some of you know Keith & I are currently residing in Rapid City, South Dakota. That's the state known for the Black Hills gold and the Mt. Rushmore Monument. It's a nice town, good shopping, restaurants and plenty to see and do! The house we are renting has a wood burning stove and we were fortunate to find via a newspaper ad, free wood! We drove out southwest of town to an area called Hart Flats, but it's not, flat that is, it's in the trees/forrest, and loaded up Keith's truck with wood!! YEA!!! Got a bit of a work out in with the loading and unloading!! Keith is so excited to have free wood and to be able to make a fire. Most of you know he's a fire bug!! The house is still warm from last nights fire! And warm is 75 degrees!! A "burr" outside of 46 degrees right now!! Due to get down to 33! Sure miss all of you! We'll be heading to Calif for Christmas!! YEA!! I'll try and get some pictures posted. The Black Hills & Mt Rushmore should be on your "places to see" list!!

Well...we flew out of Alaska into Seattle on Oct 15. We had the car shipped and it was waiting for when we arrived. We picked it up about 30 minutes after we landed, hooked up the GPS and headed to Spokane. Spent a few days in Spokane then headed across Montana to South Dakota. A few days in Rapid City SD and then we booked to Ft Collins CO. We love Ft Collins and could live there I think. After a few days in Ft Collins, we boogied across CO and KS and are spending the night in Junction City KS tonight. Tomorrow will go into KC for some good BBQ. Tomorrow Oct 24 is our 31st anniversary and Marti's birthday is this Saturday the 27th. Having fun so far and expect to be in Florida on Nov 1. We hit a lot of the hot spots on the way: Coeur D'Alene, Little Big Horn, Devil's Tower, Mt Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Custer Park, and the Mammoth Bone Pit in Hot Springs SD. One of the largest single finds of mammoth bones in the world. We also got to meet one of the workers who actually carved Mt Rushmore. He ...

A special hello to Heather and Zack and also to Pete and Jesse . By the way , I had planned to find a steak last night but instead I ended up across the street without supper at Murphys Pub & Grill - you know me ! Gotta go -I hear the Rocky Mountains calling me !

I particularly liked the Bear Country rescue reserve. The animals I saw were amazng. So everyone...start planning your trip to SD! Who would believe I would ever say that!
As I sat in church yesterday morning next to Sondra Ogle and her daughter Kasey fond memories came back to me. It must have been in 2004 or 2005 that I went on a mission trip to Alliance, Nebraska to carry luggage etc. in the camper shell of my pickup. With the Brisbin's, Tisha and Jon and Ed and Beth James as youth leaders we made the trip, their young teen agers as well as several others were there. They had come from the Scotland Church of God east of Duenweg Mo. to help in a Bible School at the Indian Mission Church at Alliance. Kasey was among that group of great young people. Beth James found me a project of repairing a bath room for a dear old lady that as I remember had lost a leg and was in wheel chair. The stool had almost fell through the floor in her bath room. With the help from some of the youth we made the repair. After the bible school we made a sight seeing tour to the Black Hills, Mt. Rushmore, and the Badlands all in South Dakota. We stayed all night at Custer and Rapid City also in S.D ...

The Indians Are After Me, But Charles Williams Back in the mid 80s I had the pleasure of driving across South Dakota to Rapid City. It was quite an experience seeing the heads of great statesmen carved out of solid stone on Mount Rushmore. On the way, we pulled into Wall, South Dakota. We just could not help ourselves because we kept seeing these signs Visit Wall Drug: See the History of the West. We must have counted over 25 signs along the interstate in the middle of nowhere encouraging us to visit. I can tell you that it is no ordinary drug store. It has thousands of square feet displaying just about everything you can buy that has a western flavor. Life out west in the 19th century had to have been a great adventure. Sometimes, however, the search for new land and riches went to the extreme and many lost their lives. They had misplaced values. Charles Hill of Chambersburg, Pennsylvania, tells the story of a sign he saw in the Wild West Museum in Deadwood, South Dakota, which is just beyond Rapid City. ...
Well it's been a very busy summer and before I know it it's over. In the last 12 weeks I have been to South Dakota (a favorite), Nicaragua (a must), four courses in MO, Battle Creek, MI, back to Rapid City, SD, Pasadena, CA, Big Sandy, TX and finally Dover, DE. And the best part of all of that was I got to see Kirstie on my way back from DE when I stopped by her place in PA
We got doubly inspired by Pastor Marilyn Cox's sermon yesterday. We decided to go back to Seattle thru South Dakota and see Mount Rushmore, go thru Sturgis, and go to Devil's Tower. Never been to any. Made it to Rapid City, S.D. and will see Mt. Rushmore tomorrow morning.

Bloody *** what a day. I stayed up late last night to track the Grand Final on line so it didn't finish until about 1.45 in the morning, then I couldn't get to sleep. We then checked out some things in Cheyenne before heading off over the prairie lands to Rapid City by Deadwood and Mount Rushmore. We crossed from Wyoming into South Dakota. The prairie lands were about six hours of flat or mildly undulating grass lands. Hardly any trees or much else. In general it was so boring even the car was snoring. Luckily there was some Pink Floyd, Led Zep and other classics on the digital sound system to break up the monotony of the road. Carol found a statue of the woman who got women the first votes in Wyoming and became the first Chief Justice in the USA. Had a big night out for dinner at a classy restaurant called Arby's. they are very exclusive and have 4 Stars, a small comet and a half moon. Filed between KFC and McDonalds.
"All went well in South Dakota; everyone got through the airport fine. Stayed with President and Sister Anderson for one day. Been traveling for 2 days. Got to Rapid city on 24th then got on a bus...on the 25th got to Bismark, North Dakota in the afternoon, waited for more missionaries to come to church next to the Bismark temple (the temple its really small) then we stayed with the zone leader in a small apartment (the ghettos), lol. The 26th we are given a ford fusion, purple color car 4 door. When then got to Newport City drop off some missionaries. Then we drove to Watford City, North Dakota my assigned area for 12+ weeks. My new companion is Austin Ritich from Grover, WY. He's shorter then me to me neck. So yep I'm In Watford city the land of Black Gold. That big oil reserve between Canada and USA. Also it can get really cold here. down to the negatives...I can tell you this South Dakota and North their hilly and flat really flat with little trees." Elder Black September 28, 2012
20 days till we officially leave Rapid City... I am starting to have mixed feeling. Rapid holds alot of special memories for Derek and I , it is the place where our lives changed when we had Nick. Derek and I got married here. Then there was Dereks graduation from college ( which was the whole reason we ended up in South Dakota). And last but not least Lily was blessed upon us. Yet I am excited about the move to Washington. However, I start thinking about all the people that have been good to us here and I can honestly say those are when the tears start to fall. It will be easy to say good bye to RC the town the house that Nick and Lily made into a home, but hard to say goodbye to the very special people that have made the last seven years great. So I have decided that I will not say goodbye to those people but instead a "See Ya Later" . After all no one is dieing and this should be a time of celebration. Derek has worked hard to get where he is today and this new job/ promotion is a blessing and a pa ...

Had a fairly long day east of Rapid City on I90 ... about 3 hours in 1880 Town (almost 2 hours away), then a hour and a half trip through the Badlands of South Dakota, finally ending up at Wall for supper and of course a visit to Wall Drug. I'll post a few pics when I get them downloaded onto the laptop. :)

Brodsky and Quaintance: First monetize debts, then assets (aka gold) Harvard University's graduates are earning less than those from the South Dakota School of Mines & Technology after a decade-long commodity bull market created shortages of workers as well as minerals. Those leaving the college of 2,300 students this year got paid a median salary of $56,700, according to PayScale Inc., which tracks employee compensation data from surveys. At Harvard, where tuition fees are almost four times higher, they got $54,100. Those scheduled to leave the campus in Rapid City, South Dakota, in May are already getting offers, at a time when about one in 10 recent U.S. college graduates is out of work. "It doesn't seem to be too hard to get a job in mining," said Jaymie Trask, a 22-year-old chemical-engineering major who was offered a post paying more than $60,000 a year at Freeport- McMoRan Copper & Gold Inc.

Took a vacation to Rapid city South Dakota to see Mount Rushmore and the Crazy Horse moument.

Also wentto thetown of Sturgis yesterday. Back to Denver on Friday and more yard work.

Last week in Rapid City, South Dakota, a husband and wife stepped up to view the body of his mother-in-law. As he began to cry, his wife punched him and said: Why are you crying, you never liked my mother anyway. I know he replied, I thought I saw her move!
On our way back to Rapid City from Hill City, South Dakota. We went up there to stop in on three wine companies for free wine tasting. There was one that had a Strawberry, Rhubarb wine and it was delicious. Made you want to break out in song, "strawberry wine, seventeen." So, we had a great time but poor Maddox is beyond ready for a nap. Thank you Joel for coming with and driving.
We were out bright and early to visit the Little Big Horn Memorial Battle site (no longer called the Custer Battlefield). Since I last visited, they created an additional battleground memorial listing each of the Native American tribes and their respective participants in the battle and a beautiful sculpture depicting them in battle. A fitting tribute. From there it was a long ride from Montana back through Wyoming to Rapid City, South Dakota. After a meal at an authentic western style restaurant called The Gaslight with music provided by a real banjo pickin' band, it was on to Mount Rushmore for the evening lighting ceremony. Braving the cold, we sat in the amphitheater as the ranger talked about the reason for the selection of the four presidents who grace the mountain and a video about the contributions of each of the four to the richness of this country. At the conclusion, all military service people were invited up on stage for the closing flag folding ceremony. Each soldier was asked to touch the f ...
Looking forward to performing for the North West Shuttle Conference in Rapid City, which is sponsored by the Pennington County Sheriff's Office.

This article is from the Fox affiliate in Rapid City. Its about one of the most awesome young men who wears his faith on his sleeve, and his opponents on his back. They cant stop him !!! Rock it this weekend Nate Rotert. The third week of the South Dakota high school football season is just a couple days away and the Central Cobblers are looking to pick up their second win of the young season. Coach Trent Pikula and company are bracing for a trip up the Interstate to Spearfish where they will take on the rugged Spartans and bruising running back Nate Rotert.A beast to bring down, Rotert and the Spartans will prove a tall task for the Cobbler defense.Pikula says, 'Well, they had a big win against Stevens and were able to shut those guys out, and so we're both kind of in the same situation: came off a first week loss with big wins in week two - very similar for both teams. We're both trying to find kind of who we really are.'They do run a little misdirection, but a lot of stuff is coming right at ya. We' ...

I read on the INTERNET that a sportsmens group called Safari International and the Yakama Nation brought 99 pronghorn antelope to the Yakama rez last year to start a herd there and wouldn't let tribal biologists or tribal members be interviewed or voice their concerns about the project even the Washington Cattlemens Assn.pointed out they had the potential to spread brucellosis to cattle and would invade feed crops when wild forage ran out in the winter or earlier.I remember seeing lots of antelope and deer in Wyoming while driving to South Dakota in the winter only they were not in fields they were in the rest area parking lots trying to browse what was left of grass and shrubs there that was not covered by snow. The deer that overran the parks and landscaped areas in Rapid City end up as a game control hunt item and eventually deer burgers given out at the food bank to the poor. Are these sportsmen going to be allowed to hunt in the closed area too even though they aren't tribal members in violation of t ...

Back from Rapid City, South Dakota. How was I supposed to know it was the same week as the Sturgis Motorcycle Festival!! Thousands of motorcycles and my daughter's minivan. Great ride through Keystone up to Rushmore. Grandkids are awesome. They reinvigorate me.
Hello from South Dakota!!! Me and the kids (the kids and I?) arrived in Rapid City, SD Tuesday evening, after a two day drive. We are settling in well, considering we're temporarily in a two bedroom apartment, with my husband. Have spent the past two days looking at houses. Unfortunately, nothing has really struck me as someplace I REALLY want to live in. More house hunting tomorrow. My first true Culture Shock is that Mozzarella and Ricotta cheeses are considered "exotic" cheeses here. Seriously? The one chain grocery store that I went to, yesterday, doesn't even carry either of these cheeses, they do, however, carry goat cheese--go figure. The area is breathtakingly beautiful and I know we'll have no problem settling in, as soon as we have a permanent address.

Home safe and sound-just a little hot that last stretch into Phx with 114 degrees! I was beat last night! Monday we rode from Rapid City, SD to Longmont, CO to spend the night with my cousin Lisa & family. It was great to see them again, and Mike and Tom bonded well with a trip to the Left Hand Brewery nearby, it was a fun visit! Tuesday we rode from Longmont to Durango, CO where we stayed with friends Jack & Cheryl. We had to stop on the way at about mile 5200 (on the trip) to put on full rain gear (first time on this trip) just before we hit a wall of water. Had a good rain all the way over Wolf Creek Pass, which is a steep windy road, so was a little slow going, but once we got over the pass it cleared up and was nice a cool. Wed we rode the rest of the way home riding down 191 in NW Arizona thru the Indian Reservation. We saw more Animals on that stretch than the entire trip. Before Wed, we had seen a Wild Turkey in NC near the Blue Ridge Parkway, a deer in PA and in South Dakota we saw a Buffal ...
Carol and I left Lima on August 1 for a 30-day once-in-a-lifetime vacation to celebrate our retirements--Carol last year from the Lima City Schools and me from Habitat for Humanity-Lima Area on July 15. The photo album attached will show locations that we have visited so far--rural Wellman, Iowa (visiting friends Wilbur and Helen Yoder and the Amana Colonies), Minneapolis-St. Paul (seeing the Mall of the Americas, the Fitzgerald Theater--home of Garrison Keillor's Prairie Home Companion radio show, and St. Olaf College), and the Mount Rushmore National Memorial. Along the way from Minneapolis to Rapid City we were accompanied by literally hundreds (thousands?) of motorcycles heading for the Sturgis SD rally that will bring more than a half million people to that small western South Dakota town.
Visited Wall Drug in the bustling little town of Wall, South Dakota yesterday. Today, from Rapid City, we went underground in Jewel Cave which happens to be the second largest cave system in the world. Tomorrow on the Mount Rushmore and a few other scenic drives.
Absolutely impressed to hear a REAL South Dakota city name used on Warehouse 13 last week. Rapid City.
Made it to Rapid City, South Dakota. We are ready to see the sites and for the Sturgis bike week to begin.
Just had some quality South Dakota cuisine: Pizza Butt. Now we are off across the state to Rapid City!
Well I finally have a date set for my surgery it is Aug. 14th in Rapid City South Dakota. I know long way from Denver, but the hospital in Denver wanted me to be sure to give them a large down payment before they would have done my surgery and I would have, but decided I do not want to go to a hospital that cares more about the money than me. So I told my dr. I would just go for the regular surgery and she could do it instead of orthoscopic. She really did not want to do that because the surgery would be much harder on me more chance of infection and long recovery process. This morning the hospital in Rapid City called me and asked me if I wanted to have my surgery there, and I told them I do not have very good insurance and they said we would treat you even if you don't have insurance. There are only three places to get the kind of surgery I need, that isn't so invasive. Denver Rapid and can't remember the other place. The people in Rapid were so nice I knew this is where I was supposed to go all alon ...
