Decisions to protect taxpayers will haunt commission in lawsuit

Someone watching the KELO report on the 6 p.m. broadcast on Tuesday would think the Walworth County Commission have done nothing about the condition of the Walworth County Jail. Those of us who live here know that is not the entire story. Although the commission has not addressed some issues that were brought up in the report, including spending money […]

Ball Five: Big game coming for Tigers

The Tigers host the Sisseton Redmen in the annual homecoming game at Tiger Stadium on Friday. The 4-0 Tigers are coming off a bye week after starting the season with convincing wins over Groton Area, Miller/Highmore-Harrold, Lead-Deadwood and Aberdeen Roncalli. The Tigers are tied for fourth in this week’s SDFBCA Coaches Poll and sixth in S.D. Prep Media Poll. Sisseton […]

Times of tragedy bring out the best in community

There are heavy hearts in our community this morning. It is a time when we all have to push through to complete our duties and get information out to the public, in spite of our emotions. When information came through this morning, a cloud enveloped this office as the tragedy hit close to home. Although official information has not yet […]

Having two undefeated teams after a month is rare

Someone always has to ask one of these kinds of questions. And then you know what happens? I have to find out the answer. It’s not a rule or anything. It’s a personality quirk. Once I know I can dig up the answer, out comes the shovel. The question asked was, “When was the last time both of our teams […]

BALL FIVE: Marathon man has tough test running down Utah mountain

The Bridge City’s marathon man, Curtis Huffman, was off and running again, this time at the East Canyon Marathon in Morgan, Utah. Huffman ran on what he called one of the most difficult courses he has ever competed on, but still managed to complete the race in three hours, 3.08.1 minutes. His time was the ninth fastest overall and first […]

KATIE ZERR: Our military forces deserve respect, not a leader who dishonors

Is the political environment in this country so toxic that our military men and women have become targets of the nasty politics? The turn this election cycle took this week is enough to make even the most realistic of political pundits sick at the latest revelations. Our Commander in Chief, the president, has often taken shots at many of our […]

Outside the Fence: There are good reasons for leash laws

Recently there has been a rash of calls to the Mobridge Police concerning dogs running loose in the community. It seems people are forgetting that dogs, within the city limits or one mile outside the limits, once outside of a building, are required to be on a leash or tethered. The ordinance requiring that owners must maintain control of their […]

BALL FIVE:Opening weekend was great two days for Tiger sports

What a great start to the new sports year the Tigers and Lady Tigers had on Friday and Saturday. It all started on Friday night when the Tigers simply annihilated the Miller/Highmore-Harrold Rustlers. If you weren’t there, you cannot tell how serious the destruction was. The game was not nearly as close at the 60-6 final might make it seem. […]

KATIE ZERR: Sudden girlie-girl trait is disturbing

No one told me that aging would bring on certain changes to a person that have been, in my case, quite unexpected. It’s not just the aches and pains that invade the body in the morning after a shorter night’s sleep, or the frequency of trips to the bathroom at night. I am talking about changes to one’s character. I […]

BALL FIVE: Friday should beautiful football night

Tiger fans that make their way to Tiger Stadium on Friday are going to be in for a treat. I’m not just talking about getting to see a Tiger football team that is fast and athletic in back, but strong and athletic up front, I’m talking about how it is going to be a gorgeous August night. It might be […]
