What will make America great?

I was born in 1945, at the end of World War II, in New Hampshire. My dad lay in a Navy hospital bed in Texas until I was a year old – when I finally met him. I grew up steeped in patriotism. I knew that my country heroically helped stop Nazi and Japanese imperialism and successfully spear-headed the Marshall plan to rebuild Europe. I admired both Republican President Dwight Eisenhower and Democratic President John Kennedy. America to me was the greatest country in the world and a model for others to follow. Now I, like so many of us, have to ask the question:

Is a country great if:

Three individuals in that country have as much wealth as half the rest of the population?

Forty million people in that country live at or below the official poverty rate?

The country claims to be a democracy but nobody can run for national public office without raising a fortune from rich people and/or corporations?

Board debates adding School Resource Officer

The Timber Lake School Board discussed the positives and negatives of adding a school resource officer Thursday, June 14 at their regular meeting. Without making a decision, the board went back and forth among themselves and with Supt. Dan Martin and Dewey County Sheriff Les Mayer also taking part in the discussion.

Mayer said the topic came up when his department was doing ALICE training (active shooter response training). After broaching the subject with the county commission, he reasoned the next step was to gauge the interest of the school board.

“Our problem is finding the funding to make it happen,” Mayer said.

Board member Bryce Lindskov said he supported the idea and asked if there was any state or federal funding available. Mayer said he was aware of things regarding equipment and training but nothing that would contribute to the salary of an SRO.

Isabel Board has second reading of new garbage ordinance

At the Isabel Town Board meeting on Monday evening, Gary Mound of the CRST Telephone Authority presented two invoices for cut cable repairs. They dated from April of 2014 and November of 2015, and the total charge is $1204.09.

Board members tried to determine the exact location where the lines were cut and who did the digging. Maintenance Supt. Frankie Ducheneaux reasoned that since Isabel does not own a backhoe or digging equipment, the work must have been done by some other entity.

She assured Mound, “We want to get to the bottom of this as much as you do.” The board agreed to work with the Telephone Authority to find out who is responsible for the repair bills.

CRSTTA says fiber project moving ahead

Even though some state legislators are challenging Gov. Kristi Noem’s rural broadband grants, the Timber Lake fiber project is moving ahead.

Mona Thompson, general manager of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Telephone Authority, said Tuesday, “We are proceeding with the project as if the state broadband grant issue will be resolved with a favorable outcome. And it is still our plan to complete the project by the end of 2019 as required by the state broadband grant.”

Thompson and Jonathon Ivers of Vantage Point, the engineering firm involved in the project, spoke to the Timber Lake City Council via telephone at Monday night’s council meeting. Thompson told the council that the federal funding that had been pending was “not going to work for us.”
