The US Census Bureau wants to change the requirements to be a Metropolitan Statistical Area. The proposal will strip 144 small cities of that status. There are currently 392 MSAs.
The whole nation watched last week as Texas went into a deep freeze. Much of the misery could have been avoided had state officials and energy industry leaders followed recommendations of 2011.
Just think of a project where you needed cooperation from a state government, two Native American nations, ranchers, hunters and conservationists. It would seem daunting, if not impossible.
Amy Williams helped raise the level of women’s basketball when she led the USD women to the WNIT Championship. Dawn Plizawelz built on that, getting the Coyotes to an 11th place ranking in the coaches’ poll last year.
Participation in classics gives Dakota Valley players and teams excellent visibility. Classics have a rich history in South Dakota. Sponsorships vary. Some communities have sports and recreation committees who sponsor. In other places, it could be an organization like Sanford or an education…
Washington, D.C. is supposed to be the center of world democracy. Pictures of fences topped by barbed wire and military personnel and equipment are not the image we or the world wants to see.
My first exposure to Georgia came from a teammate on the track team at the University of Wyoming who was from Georgia. He was a pole vaulter and is now ranked nationally at his age group. On trips he would offer his thoughts on the civil war.
The COVID-19 relief bill did indicate one thing – the two political parties can work together if they are permitted to. Our U.S. Representative Dusty Johnson deserves credit for being part of the group that initiated this action.
Last week I took the time to review the bound copies of the Leader-Courier, the sister paper of the Times. The Leader-Courier is in its 150th year and 26th year of our ownership. My wife, Susan, is editor.
Let’s be real – Washington, D.C., is broken. If it were just you and me out there, we could figure this thing out pretty quickly with a little South Dakota common sense. But unfortunately, that’s not the case. Washington is filled with un-elected lobbyists and bureaucrats who think they run …
Life has changed for all of us. For better mental health, we need to be creative in a safe way. Everyone has ideas, but here are a few that are easy and affordable. They may require some changes on your part.

Friday night, Dakota Valley played at Crane Youngworth stadium in Yankton. The stadium was originally part of the now-closed Yankton College. After its closure, the college became a federal prison through the efforts of then-U.S. Senator Larry Pressler.

It is a phrase used in many settings. Its prime reference is to suggest ‘walk in their shoes’ to understand where they come from. It helps one appreciate a particular position or positions a person takes.
Kudos to the Texas policeman who responded to a 9-1-1 call and carried a lady to safety just before the roof of her home was torn off by a tornado. The story has a second happy ending. When the homeowner returned to her heavily-damaged home, she found her cat inside and unhurt. Thank you to …
Father’s Day is one of those special days. I was fortunate to have a father growing up. Unfortunately, he passed away at 67 from an enlarged heart, a common diagnosis of professional football players from the 40s.
