Petition to call for change of governance

Timber Lake is one step closer to changing the form of city government.

City Finance Officer Karla Nordyke told the city council at their meeting Monday night that Margaret Holloman plans to initiate the petition process to change from the mayor and alder form to a board of trustees. The number of trustees was not specified but must be three, four, or five.

The petition requires signatures of at least 15% of the number of registered voters who cast ballots in the last general election —about 45-50. An election must be held within 50 days after the petition is submitted to the council. Nordyke suggested the election might be held the same day as the general election (November 6).

Embracing change in the new school year

By Angie Jones

It’s hard to believe that in just one short week, the kids will already be back in school and the flurry of activities which that entails will be underway. I always looked forward to the start of a new school year. It was exciting to know that you’d be getting new teachers, learning new things, and taking one more step toward being “grown up.” It was also fun to see how everyone had changed over the summer. It’s really amazing to witness the radical changes that can occur in a kid’s looks and personality in just three short months.

Kids today live in a different world than they did even twenty years ago. On the one hand, these changes can seem scary and foreign. We never used to have to worry about things like school shootings, online bullying or our kids having so much “screen time” that they never learn how to interact with other humans face to face.

The Sturgis Rally

By Gov. Dennis Daugaard

It’s rally time in South Dakota. What started in 1938 as a single motorcycle race in a small town has grown into one of the largest and best-known motorcycle gatherings in the world. This year is the 78th Annual Sturgis Motorcycle Rally, and as always, the event is sure to bring a crowd.

Motorcycle enthusiasts aren’t just visiting Sturgis. They are traveling all around the Black Hills – staying in our hotels and at our campgrounds, eating in our local restaurants, shopping in our stores and refueling at our gas stations. Each year the rally has a big economic impact on Sturgis and all of the Black Hills, and that creates benefits for our state too.
