SRS Tribe asks protestors to leave camps

The Standing Rock Sioux Tribe has formally asked protestors of the Dakota Access Pipeline to disperse from their camps. In a statement posted to the tribe’s official Facebook page on Jan. 21, it was announced that the SRST Tribal Council had unanimously passed a resolution which asked that no camps remain in the Cannonball District. The press release states that councilmen from across the reservation supported the Cannonball District’s wishes for the camps to disperse, citing “hardships and strain” on the people and resources of the tribe. Cleaning up the camp sites will require much effort and time before the spring which will bring probable flooding, the release stated.

Aberle announces closing of private law practice March 1

Attorney Steve Aberle announced at the Dewey County Commission meeting on January 10 that he will close his private law practice at Timber Lake effective March 1 but will stay on as Dewey County State’s Attorney. Aberle said the work load has increased to the point where he cannot do both. His father and partner, Andy Aberle, retired last year and Steve said the number of drug cases and the time spent on the impoundment of the ISPMB horses influenced his decision. Aberle, a Democrat, was unopposed when he was reelected to another four-year term in November, 2016. As State’s Attorney, he is the prosecutor for criminal cases and is legal counsel for the county. He said he plans to move his office to the courthouse.

By Kathy Nelson
 
A mix of about 20 parents, staff members, students and community people offered opinions and questions about a possible track and football field improvement project at a special meeting of the Timber Lake School Board on Jan. 11. The purpose of updating the existing football field and track, Supt. Dan Martin said, would be to provide: a safe and healthy environment for school events and classes, a place for community members to exercise, a venue for church and community group events, and a place to host football jamborees, track and field events.

Going home

The crew at Gill Red Angus of Timber Lake trailed these cows through five and a half miles of deep snow last week leading them with a bale of hay on a tractor traveling in reverse. The Gills started their May/June calving program 15 years ago and have only had to feed this group of cows one previous winter as they always had enough grazing. They started feeding these cows about a month ago due to the snow depth and it got to the point where they could hardly get to the location. Last week they made the decision to bring them home. This is the first time any of these cows have ever been brought home in over 15 years.

This is one Christmas they will not forget

By Kathy Nelson

An ambulance call on Christmas Day — in the middle of a raging blizzard — provided many opportunities for something to go wrong, terribly wrong.

But thanks to cool heads, good training, experience, and prayers, a nearly eight-hour ordeal had a mostly happy ending.

Chris Hermes, one of Timber Lake’s longest serving EMTs, said later that although there was eight inches of snow on Highway 20, “You could see a little bit” when she and driver Austin Stover, new to the ambulance crew, took off for the Bickel Ranch, 16 miles away.

Plans to pick up EMTs Jackie Biegler and Ellen Hulm on the way were scrapped because they both were snowed in, so Steve Karbowski, a newly-certified EMT, was called and caught up to the ambulance at Mike and Corrine Huber’s driveway three miles west of town (where Stan Schlosser and Sheriff ’s Deputy Ashley Arpan were both stuck).
