Frazier: No welcome for Keystone

We will be waiting.” The above line was the one-sentence response letter from Cheyenne River Sioux Chairman Harold Frazier to TransCanada Corp. on Friday. Frazier was replying to a July 11 letter from TransCanada Sr. Manager of Indigenous Relations Nadine Busmann, who wrote that the Keystone XL pipeline project will begin this month and continuing through the fall to move materials and prepare for construction-related sites in Montana and South Dakota. The project has been contested since it was proposed 10 years ago and it’s current proposed route would skirt the southernmost tip of Ziebach County, crossing the Cheyenne River near Bridger.

Two Cheyenne River women share passion for genealogy

By Kathy Nelson

In Elko, Nevada live two women who share ancestral roots on the Cheyenne River Reservation and a passion for genealogy. The two family history “detectives” spend hours a day searching Census records, cemetery records, and data bases to help people connect to their relatives.

“I was first introduced to genealogy through the Ancestry.com website on November 2, 2006,” said Cheryl Randall, a bookkeeper by profession presently at home raising her three young grandchildren. “I had traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah for a doctor appointment. While staying in a motel, the show Good Morning America aired a segment with two representatives from Ancestry.com. I was immediately drawn to the stories they shared — although I don’t remember what they were about! But I remember them stating that for the next two weeks it is free.”

After receiving surveys, letters and personal testimony of support, the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Telephone Authority Board of Directors decided at its June 27 meeting to take the next step toward bringing fiber service to the Timber Lake community.

“The board was encouraged by the community support,” said CRSTTA General Manager Mona Thompson. She said CRSTTA will seek regulatory approval from the S.D. Public Utilities Commission (PUC) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a process that is expected to take 60 to 90 days.

Then and now

New gas pumps at Biegler’s Timber Lake Service provided an opportunity for these “then and now” photos. AT LEFT is Dr. F.M. McClellan proudly showing off his prize catch in front of what was then the Timber Lake Standard Station. McClellan came to Isabel in 1916 and to Timber Lake in 1918 and set up his dental practice there. He was instrumental is establishing the Little Moreau Park and served on the city council. His descendants, Dr. Herb McClellan Sr., Dr. Herb McClellan Jr., and Dr. Marc McClellan, continued the dental practice at Mobridge. The other photo is David Biegler in the same location — about 75 years later — showing off his shiny new gas pumps. Dave didn’t catch the fish (It’s borrowed from the Mettlers) and he doesn’t smoke cigarettes (But he does sell them).

Father, son meet for first time

By Kathy Nelson

Zane Arpan of Eagle Butte never knew he had a Vietnamese son, but My Tran, who lives in Oklahoma City with his wife and two children, always knew he had an American father. The two met last week, just a few days before Father’s Day, thanks to the wonders of DNA. On the evening of August 29, 2017, Cheryl Maxwell Randall, a second cousin of Zane’s, got a

“hit” on her AncestryDNA account. My Tran, someone she had never heard of, was a close match for her on the Claymore branch of her family tree. My Tran told Cheryl he was born in Vietnam in 1968, had been living in Oklahoma City for more than 20 years, and had recently sent his saliva sample to AncestryDNA in hopes that he could find his American soldier father.
