CRST restricts alcohol sales, modifies essential travel order

In its on-going effort to prevent and slow the spread of novel coronavirus on the Cheyenne River Sioux Reservation, the tribal council this week enacted a resolution limiting the hours alcoholic beverages may be sold on the reservation. Under the order, which went into effect Wednesday, April 22, alcohol may be sold only between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday.

Tribal officials say the action was taken because they feel gatherings of homeless individuals and others in, around and near liquor establishments present a threat to the health, safety and welfare of tribal members as well as other residents of the reservation.

MEANT TO BE TOGETHER

Light crowd, strong sale Lindskov-Thiel Ranch held its annual bull sale Saturday north of Isabel. Many of the sales were online via repeat buyers who bid via phone or video instead of attending in person. The top bull went for over $100k to a Texas buyer. Pictured, Les Lindskov gives a welcome to open the sale.

Many youngsters in this neck of the woods may aspire to be ranchers when they grow up, but there’s one who already qualifies as a full blown cattleman after a special moment Saturday.

During Lindskov-Thiel’s annual bull sale, auctioneer and L-T partner/owner Brent Thiel made kindergartner Royce Grueb’s dreams come true by making sure he won the Charolais bull he had coveted for weeks.

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

In this letter, Ed Bader of Burleson, TX and formerly of Timber Lake refers to an article by Doug Sombke, president of the S.D. Farmers Union, which appeared on the front page of the Topic’s Local Agriculture special section on March 26, 2020. Following Mr. Bader’s letter is a response from SD Farmers Union.

To the editor: I just can't allow someone like

I just can't allow someone like Doug Sombke who is in a high leadership position (president of the Farmers Union) to stretch the truth about the cattle market. I know it is bad. But, his math is something that came of the Modern Math era.

Two incidents reported at reservation checkpoints

A Kenel, SD man was arrested after driving through one of the reservation border checkpoints last Friday, and an incident at another check point is under investigation. Traffic is stopped at the checkpoints as part of the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe’s effort to control the spread of the coronavirus.

Wayne Hepper, driving a pickup and horse trailer, was arrested by Dewey County Deputy Sheriff Dan Assman for eluding and failure to stop after he drove through the CRST checkpoint on Highway 212 west of Dupree about 10 p.m. and failed to heed Assman’s warning.

Dewey County Sheriff Les Mayer said Hepper had filled out the paperwork at the checkpoint but when CRST officers there told him he would not be allowed to cross into the reservation because he had North Dakota license plates, he drove through anyway.
