Name change hearing

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) — A state board is meeting to take public input on a proposed name change for Harney Peak in Pennington County.
The South Dakota Board on Geographic Names is scheduled to hold meetings Wednesday in Custer and Rapid City. The board also accepts written comments.
One new suggested name for the geographic feature is Black Elk Peak, but many others have been proposed. The peak is in the Black Hills National Forest, and it's been described as the highest point in the U.S. east of the Rocky Mountains.
It was named for Army Gen. William S. Harney, who in 1855 led soldiers who killed Sioux Indians in Nebraska. The board will take public input and could issue a recommendation to the U.S. Board on Geographic Names.

Special seats in Webster

Wednesday, April 29, 2015

WEBSTER, S.D. (AP) — Upgrades to sports facilities in Webster will feature a piece of Minnesota sports history.
The upgrade to the city's Bob Wiley Field baseball complex includes 28 seats from the old Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome in Minneapolis.
American Legion baseball coach Chad Hesla says the blue seats will be used in two sections of raised patio space at the field.
The Metrodome was the longtime home of the Minnesota Twins and Minnesota Vikings before being torn down last year to make way for a new Vikings stadium. The Twins moved into outdoor Target Field in 2010.
The football field and track in Webster also are being upgraded, at a cost of $1.4 million.
