Mission man killed in 212 accident Nov. 9

Roger Allen, 61, of Mission died Saturday, November 9 in a two-vehicle crash on Highway 212 a quarter of a mile west of Ridgeview. The accident occurred about 9:30 p.m.

A Peterbilt semi-truck pulling an empty grain trailer was westbound on U.S Highway 12 and preparing to turn left when it was struck by a westbound 1994 Ford F350 pickup driven by Allen. The pickup slid into the north ditch and rolled.

Allen, who was not wearing a seat belt, was partially ejected and pronounced dead at the scene. His 16-year-old passenger, Thaddeus Allen, also of Mission, who was wearing a seat belt, received minor injuries. He was transported to a clinic in Eagle Butte.

Timber Lake Broadband deal signed Tuesday

At a special board meeting on Tuesday night, the City of Timber Lake signed a purchase agreement with Ryan Farlee for the sale of Timber Lake Broadband. The internet service company that the city owned for ten years will become part of Farlee’s Advanced Wireless business effective November 15.

For $500, Farlee purchased all assets of the business including equipment, licenses, leases, and contracts, but excluding the 2016 Chevy pickup and some smaller items.

The change of business will take place on Friday, November 15, and final closing will be no later than November 30.

The purchase agreement was prepared by City Attorney Cheryl Bogue, who was present to make a few edits in the document before it was signed by Farlee and board chair Tom Hermes.

Weather taking toll on harvest

Weather taking toll on harvest

A field of sunflowers east of Timber Lake stands ready for harvest, which has been long delayed.

The fall of 2019 will be one that farmers remember — and not in a good way.

Bill Knowlton at Northern Plains CHS in Isabel says it’s the worst he’s seen in at least ten years.

This is a disaster for the farmers,” he said. “Normally we are two-thirds done with harvest now or close to done. This year has been different.”

“Conditions are very wet and muddy making it very difficult to harvest fall crops,” said Mike Huber, agronomist at Agtegra in McLaughlin. “Normally we are 80 to 90 percent done with harvest by mid-November. We are lucky if we are at 30% complete this year.”

Huber said about 15% of the spring wheat crop was never harvested because of ergot, scab and low falling numbers, all caused by the wet summer and fall.

A few dry days may not be enough to remedy the situation.

FROM TROPHY TO CONTROVERSY

FROM TROPHY TO CONTROVERSY

This photo of a massive buck deer shared online over the weekend went from hero story to scandal, as it was allegedly killed illegally on private property near Timber Lake.

FROM TROPHY TO CONTROVERSY

A photo of a deer carcass owners of Timber Lake Lodge say was illegally killed on their land, up against the fence line where the private hunting reserve borders the Little Moreau State Recreation Area.

What appeared at first to be the hunt of a lifetime is turning out to be a scandal.

A photo of a slain buck deer with a massive antler rack and a proud hunter displaying the animal spread like wildfire on social media Saturday and Sunday, but excitement about the monster hunt quickly turned sour when allegations began to fly that the deer was illegally taken. Not only that, but it may have been decapitated and the body left to waste/rot.

The Facebook page South Dakota BIG Bucks posted the photo early Saturday morning to much attention and adulation from fellow hunters in the online community, but before long the story started to change.

Several people posted claims that the deer in the photo was an animal that had gone missing on the Timber Lake Lodge private game farm property.
