FROM TROPHY TO CONTROVERSY

FROM TROPHY TO CONTROVERSY

This photo of a massive buck deer shared online over the weekend went from hero story to scandal, as it was allegedly killed illegally on private property near Timber Lake.

FROM TROPHY TO CONTROVERSY

A photo of a deer carcass owners of Timber Lake Lodge say was illegally killed on their land, up against the fence line where the private hunting reserve borders the Little Moreau State Recreation Area.

What appeared at first to be the hunt of a lifetime is turning out to be a scandal.

A photo of a slain buck deer with a massive antler rack and a proud hunter displaying the animal spread like wildfire on social media Saturday and Sunday, but excitement about the monster hunt quickly turned sour when allegations began to fly that the deer was illegally taken. Not only that, but it may have been decapitated and the body left to waste/rot.

The Facebook page South Dakota BIG Bucks posted the photo early Saturday morning to much attention and adulation from fellow hunters in the online community, but before long the story started to change.

Several people posted claims that the deer in the photo was an animal that had gone missing on the Timber Lake Lodge private game farm property.

City board accepts Farlee’s $500 bid for TL Broadband

The Timber Lake City Board accepted Ryan Farlee’s bid Monday night: $500 for the Timber Lake Broadband enterprise, which he had managed for the city until his resignation a month ago.

Farlee, who dropped in briefly at the end of the meeting, said he plans to merge TLB with his other business, Advanced Wireless. His bid letter stated, “I plan to keep the system running but as you know it requires some major upgrades and will be losing many subs to the fiber.”

The change of ownership is to take place on November 15, following a special meeting on November 12 to finalize the purchase agreement between the City and Farlee.

City Finance Officer Karla Nordyke will work with Cheryl Bogue, city attorney, to prepare the purchase agreement.

On the way to the vote, board members weighed the pros and cons of accepting Farlee’s bid, which is significantly lower than the $100,000 estimated value of the system.

New Tri-County Chiropractic building nears completion

New Tri-County Chiropractic building nears completion

Chiropractor Brandon Heck’s new building in Isabel will soon headquarter the Tri-County Chiropractic business, which is approaching 10 years of serving the area.

Day by day, the new Tri-County Chiropractic location in Isabel grows closer to completion. In tandem with the progress, the anticipation of owners Brandon and Misty Heck is growing as well.

“We’re grateful for all the support,” Brandon said. “We get to care for and work with some great people here and we’re excited to be able to provide this to our patients and to the community overall.”

Construction at the site of the former Isabel Dakotan building began during the summer after the old building was razed. When they decided to take action on the need for more space, the Hecks decided to move on from the small house where they had been operating their practice for 9 years.

“It’s exciting to have something new and nice in Isabel,” Misty said.
