Jury trial underway in Timber Lake this week

Jury trial underway in Timber Lake this week

Welcome fall

A friendly scarecrow welcomes fall at Biegler’s Timber Lake Service. It’s been a wetter than usual fall at the Timber Lake area received 3.88 inches of rain in September and is 9.48 inches above normal for the year.

Thirteen people (12 jurors and one alternate) were seated Tuesday as a civil trial began in Fourth Circuit Court in Timber Lake with Judge Michael Day presiding.

The case was filed in 2014 by Jerry Hamersley and his wife Wanda Hamersley of Oklahoma against Lindskov Ranch General Partnership of Isabel and Kempton Olney, a former employee of the Lindskovs, alleging personal injury to Mr. Hamersley.

The matter being disputed occurred on November 17, 2011 at the Lindskov feed lot 15 miles north of Isabel, on the old Mick Jung place, where some hay bales were being loaded onto one of Hamersley’s semis.

The plaintiffs were represented by attorney Nathan Oviatt of Rapid City, and the defendants were represented by attorney John Burke, also of Rapid City.

According to the Dewey County Sheriff’s Office, Schumacher apparently suffered a heart attack while he and his wife, Bernita, 70, were eastbound in a swather on a gravel road two miles south and 1/2 mile east of the Highway 20/63 junction west of Timber Lake when he slumped over in the driver’s seat. The swather ran into the ditch, and Bernita was thrown out of the vehicle. She was able to get to the road and call for help. She was transported by ambulance to Mobridge and later Aberdeen.

Isabel Board approves budget

The first reading of the 2020 budget was approved at Monday’s Isabel Town Board meeting. The budget ordinance totaled $281,805 in appropriations including $193,800 for the general fund and $80,841 for the water fund. The dollar property tax levy to Dewey County is budgeted at $48,060. The second reading and adoption of the budget is slated for a special meeting on Monday, Sept. 16 at 6 p.m.

There was no activity on most of the old business items on Monday’s agenda, so the meeting was short. Finance Officer Janet Kuivenhoven told the board that personal issues would call her from the office over the next 6 weeks or so and that open office hours would be changing.

No bids on broadband, council considers options

The Timber Lake City Council received no bids for the city-owned broadband enterprise; the bid opening was set for the Monday night council meeting. The sale of Timber Lake Broadband was mandated by the voters in a special election in November 2018 and there followed many months of correspondence with the USDA to satisfy their requirements before it was appraised and advertised.

The council pondered the question of what to do next. After examining the expenses vs. revenue, the dwindling number of customers, and the cash balance of TLB, the council put the matter on the agenda for a special meeting on Sept. 24.

Councilman Josh Lemburg said it appeared that the broadband fund would soon be running a negative balance.

The monthly financial report showed that the broadband fund began August with $13,252 and ended the month with $8911.
