Ride honors memory of Wounded Knee victims, survivors

On the evening of Saturday, December 15, 33 riders and one runner entered Timber Lake to join a large support crew and make camp for the night at the community center. They were on the second day of the 32nd annual Chief Big Foot Band Memorial Ride. On that day 128 years ago, Chief Sitting Bull was killed by Indian police and the U.S. military when they attempted to arrest him at his camp on the Grand River west of Little Eagle, for his role in the Ghost Dance movement. Many of his followers joined Chief Spotted Elk’s band (Chief Big Foot) and together they fled toward the Pine Ridge reservation.

On the morning of December 29, 1890, the U.S. military surrounded their encampment at Wounded Knee Creek with the intent to disarm the group. A shot was fired which precipitated a massacre. By some estimates, over 300 mostly unarmed, men, women and children were killed that day.

FDS developers may change building plans

Changes are being made to the design plans for a proposed Family Dollar Store in Block 5 of the City of Timber Lake. The matter was tabled at the Dec. 3 city council meeting because Dale LaCompte, owner of the property in Block 5, was not present, but copies of correspondence were made available.

By a narrow 87-85 margin in a Nov. 6 special election, city voters overturned the city council’s decision to vacate the alley in Block 5 to accommodate the proposed store.

Ryan Morrissey of Burkhardt Engineering has submitted a revised preliminary site plan to the Timber Lake City Council which avoids the need to vacate the alley.

Asked to respond to: “Staff are professional and provide positive educational experiences for my child,” 57.7% said they “highly agree, all staff go above and beyond.” Forty-two percent said they “agree, some staff go above and beyond.”
