Meeting on Monday night, the Timber Lake City Council rejected a second petition from Dale LaCompte to vacate the alley in Block 5, the proposed site of a Family Dollar Store. The petition was signed by Dale LaCompte, Chad Merchant of VIA Real Estate in Cheyenne, WY, and Cody, Dustin and Colin Peterson of Rapid City.

Mark LaCompte, Dale’s brother, had asked to have a place on the agenda; he was not present but the petition was dropped off just before the meeting by their mother, Ann LaCompte.

Two Cheyenne River women share passion for genealogy

By Kathy Nelson

In Elko, Nevada live two women who share ancestral roots on the Cheyenne River Reservation and a passion for genealogy. The two family history “detectives” spend hours a day searching Census records, cemetery records, and data bases to help people connect to their relatives.

“I was first introduced to genealogy through the Ancestry.com website on November 2, 2006,” said Cheryl Randall, a bookkeeper by profession presently at home raising her three young grandchildren. “I had traveled to Salt Lake City, Utah for a doctor appointment. While staying in a motel, the show Good Morning America aired a segment with two representatives from Ancestry.com. I was immediately drawn to the stories they shared — although I don’t remember what they were about! But I remember them stating that for the next two weeks it is free.”

CRSTTA moving ahead with Timber Lake fiber

By Kathy Nelson

After receiving surveys, letters and personal testimony of support, the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe Telephone Authority Board of Directors decided at its June 27 meeting to take the next step toward bringing fiber service to the Timber Lake community.

“The board was encouraged by the community support,” said CRSTTA General Manager Mona Thompson. She said CRSTTA will seek regulatory approval from the S.D. Public Utilities Commission (PUC) and the Federal Communications Commission (FCC), a process that is expected to take 60 to 90 days.

Then and now

New gas pumps at Biegler’s Timber Lake Service provided an opportunity for these “then and now” photos. AT LEFT is Dr. F.M. McClellan proudly showing off his prize catch in front of what was then the Timber Lake Standard Station. McClellan came to Isabel in 1916 and to Timber Lake in 1918 and set up his dental practice there. He was instrumental is establishing the Little Moreau Park and served on the city council. His descendants, Dr. Herb McClellan Sr., Dr. Herb McClellan Jr., and Dr. Marc McClellan, continued the dental practice at Mobridge. The other photo is David Biegler in the same location — about 75 years later — showing off his shiny new gas pumps. Dave didn’t catch the fish (It’s borrowed from the Mettlers) and he doesn’t smoke cigarettes (But he does sell them).

Father, son meet for first time

By Kathy Nelson

Zane Arpan of Eagle Butte never knew he had a Vietnamese son, but My Tran, who lives in Oklahoma City with his wife and two children, always knew he had an American father. The two met last week, just a few days before Father’s Day, thanks to the wonders of DNA. On the evening of August 29, 2017, Cheryl Maxwell Randall, a second cousin of Zane’s, got a

“hit” on her AncestryDNA account. My Tran, someone she had never heard of, was a close match for her on the Claymore branch of her family tree. My Tran told Cheryl he was born in Vietnam in 1968, had been living in Oklahoma City for more than 20 years, and had recently sent his saliva sample to AncestryDNA in hopes that he could find his American soldier father.

Council would like to change form of city government

By Kathy Nelson

 

The Timber Lake City Council appointed Tim Gunderson as mayor Monday night, acting on the advice of their attorney, Eric Bogue, to fill the vacancy created by the resignation of Clyde Pfeifle last month. Council chairman Mike LaCompte had temporarily taken on some mayoral duties but declined when a motion was made to appoint him as mayor. Council members Tom Hermes and Josh Lemburg also declined. Lemburg said he was not willing to give up his vote. (The mayor votes only in the case of a tie.) Gunderson joined the council in January filling a Ward I vacancy. Jess Schlosser had previously resigned his Ward I post so Gunderson’s appointment as mayor leaves two vacancies in Ward I (east of Main Street).
