Promises Kept

By Gov. Dennis Daugaard

We had a lot of good news to share this week, all related to South Dakota’s outstanding financial condition. On Monday, we announced the close of the fiscal year with a surplus. On Tuesday, we got word that S&P is maintaining our AAA status. Then we learned on Wednesday that our Bureau of Finance and Management is being nationally recognized for its annual financial report.

The state’s finances have always been a top priority for me. When I campaigned for this job in 2010, it was the one thing I heard about wherever I went. We were coming out of the recession and, at the time, there was much attention on the federal deficit and the budget problems states faced nationwide.

Trade war poses real threat to agriculture

By Kathy Nelson

South Dakota’s Congressional delegation — all Republicans — are warning President Trump about the negative effects the trade war is having on agriculture.

In a joint letter to the President last week, Sen. John Thune, Sen. Mike Rounds and Rep. Kristi Noem, wrote, “We appreciate and support your administration’s efforts to address a broad spectrum of trade inequities. We do not support, however, making agriculture exports, which have been the exception to such trade inequities, bear the brunt of retaliatory actions in response to current U.S. trade policies. As you continue to pursue trade negotiations to address unfair trade practices and other trade barriers, we strongly urge you to make U.S. agricultural exports a priority of those negotiations and to negotiate with our trading partners to protect agriculture products from all existing and future tariffs.”

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.”

Creating a community where people want to live

By Paula Jensen

I often hear jovial stories and stereotypes, in and out of rural places, about how small-town people are stuck in the 1960s and refuse to accept change. They joke that we nostalgically hang on to our traditions, our history, our ways of doing things, and our small-town values. Personally, I choose to live in a small town because it’s safe, close to family, and offers me the quality of life I need.
