Dahlgren experiences Africa as part of international service course

By Karen Holzer

Twelve days in Africa as part of college curriculum sounded like a good idea to Courtney Dahlgren of Timber Lake so she registered for an International Service Learning class at Black Hills State University.

The class met three hours a week during the fall semester to study Botswana’s history, geography, and people and gain an understanding of the area they would be visiting. Lesson plans and activities were planned for the student interaction sessions that BHSU would be conducting with the high school students in Africa. Seventeen students and three professors made the trip in November, 2016.

No city elections this year

The cities of Timber Lake, Isabel and Dupree can save the trouble and expense of having municipal elections this year. When the filing deadline passed on Friday, there was either one candidate or none running for each of the council vacancies.

At Timber Lake, incumbent Mike LaCompte filed the only petition. He represents Ward III. The other vacancies — mayor and five council seats — can be filled by appointment at the May reorganizational meeting, or the incumbents can continue to serve until the vacancy is filled by appointment or election. Appointments are made by the mayor and approved by the council.
