Outlaw Tom O’Day returning to Timber Lake

This is an encore of Jack Bickel’s characterization of O’Day, who participated in the Belle Fourche Bank robbery with the Sundance Kid and Harvey Logan and led a colorful life as a horse thief and member of “the Wild Bunch” gang that operated out of the “Hole in the Wall” outlaw sanctuary in Wyoming.

Regional tourism campaign launched

The Mobridge Area Chamber of Commerce is being awarded a little over $11,000 in matching funds from the SD Department of Tourism to implement a new regional marketing campaign in 2014. The Chamber of Commerce moved to a regional focus in 2004 and will use this new opportunity to promote Timber Lake and other communities within 60 miles of Mobridge. Haden Merkel, Executive Director at the Mobridge Area Chamber, is looking forward to the project. “Having the financial ability to better promote our area towns is crucial to building a regional membership base,” explained Merkel. “As an organization, we are working on developing relationships across city and county lines.” Merkel says a strong region is good for all local communities and helps our area compete with other regions in South Dakota.
