Three petitions taken out for seats on Isabel Town Board

Three people took out petitions for seats on the Isabel Town Board at its regular monthly meeting Friday, Feb. 14 including two incumbents.

Ryan Maher, who was appointed to the board and currently serves as board president, is expected to seek a new three-year term while incumbent board member Peggy Ley said she intends to seek re-election to a two-year term. Neither has officially filed as a candidate. A petition for a three-year term on the board was also taken out by Daniel Gifford, who subsequently filed as a candidate. Gifford, who moved to Isabel with his wife Judy in June, said he attended the meeting to “find out what it was all about” before taking out a petition.

Petitions are available in the city office and the deadline for filing is 5 p.m. on Friday, Feb. 28.

CRST may explore toll booths to pay for failing infrastructure

CRST may explore toll booths to pay for failing infrastructure

Cheyenne River Sioux Chairman Harold Frazier said this week that the tribe may consider adding toll booths to compensate for a shortfall in funding to maintain roads and bridges.

The Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe (CRST) announced Monday it is considering a feasibility study to determine whether it can and should set up toll booths on state and federal highway entry points to the Cheyenne River Reservation as a means of generating revenue to repair failing transportation infrastructure.

The contemplation comes on the heels of record-setting precipitation and subsequent flooding last year that resulted in serious damage to the transportation infrastructure on the reservation, as well as state and county roads and highways. Tribal officials say a vast majority of roads on the Cheyenne River Reservation are considered “unimproved” and, as such, are extremely vulnerable to changing weather conditions and will continue to degrade if recent weather trends continue.

KIPI Radio off the air

KIPI Radio off the air

Thom Eagle Staff

KIPI Radio, a 100,000-watt radio station in Eagle Butte owned by the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe (CRST), ceased operations at 5 p.m. on Monday after a little more than one year on the air.

A statement issued by the CRST Office of Intergovernmental Affairs said the station will remain shut down indefinitely while tribal officials "launch a new organizational structure as a way to modernize and increase revenues."

KIPI was assigned its call letters by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) on Dec. 8, 2017 and transmitted via a 653-foot tower at 95.3 FM on the radio dial. Tribal officials dedicated a new 3,600-square foot studio located on Main Street of Eagle Butte during a ceremony in August 2018. Billed as "The Voice of the Cheyenne River Oyate," the station's signal reached a 120 mile radius from Eagle Butte and oftentimes farther depending upon weather conditions.

Communities are like snowflakes. No two are alike. But people in small, rural communities like Timber Lake and Isabel have one thing in common with people in communities of all shapes and sizes across the United States.

They like to talk about the weather.

In Dewey County and the north end of Ziebach County, two names that come up regularly in weather conversation are Gene Bierman and Joe Scherer. Ask either one how much rain he received and you know you’re getting an official answer.
