Timber Lake City Council hears plans for Family Dollar Store

Several months ago the City of Timber Lake was contacted by a development company investigating the feasibility of building a Family Dollar Store in Timber Lake. There were no official requests at that time. Discussion surfaced again at the council’s regular meeting on Monday night, when Dale LaCompte of Timber Lake spoke to the council. LaCompte said he had been leasing the property that Family Dollar Store is interested in and he had recently taken five of the six lots in Block 5 out of trust.

The property is between Highway 20 and Tenth Street, east of the city park and west of the Biegler and Herman properties in Block 4. LaCompte said there is one more lot that is still in trust. That is Lot 3 in the southeast corner of the block, the proposed site for the building.

Danielle and Brock Williams are new owners of West Winds Health Services

Gary and Ramona Simon, who have owned and operated West Winds Health Services for the past 21 years, are selling the business to Danielle and Brock Williams of Faith. The change of ownership will be effective around Feb. 1.

West Winds presently employs 12 people as nurses, home health aides, homemakers and office staff and provides services in Dewey, Ziebach, Corson and Meade counties. In a letter to clients last week, Simon wrote, “Most of you know Danielle as a nurse presently employed with us. Danielle has worked for West Winds since her high school graduation in the office, out in the field as a nurse’s aide and homemaker, and now as a home health nurse.” Simon said that over the last few years she has had several offers to sell the business but none of the potential buyers could promise to keep it in the local community.

T. Gunderson new member of city council

Tim Gunderson, who returned to his hometown last spring after being in Pierre for 25 years, is looking forward to serving the community as a member of the Timber Lake City Council. He was appointed by the council at the January meeting to fill Seat 1 in Ward 1 (the area east of Main Street).

“I want to help the community,” Gunderson said. He has some ideas he wants to present to the council, such as setting up recycling, making improvements at Little Moreau Park, and helping the elderly. He would like to see plastic, newspaper, cardboard and aluminum recycled. He said that, like his late mother (Mabel Gunderson), many older people will not ask for help but there should be a way to make help available to them for tasks they can no longer perform for themselves.
