SOUTH DAKOTA-FAMILY SLAIN-THE LATEST
AROUND THE STATE:
WET SIOUX FALLS
SIOUX FALLS, S.D. — This year will go down as one of the wettest — and perhaps the wettest — in the history of Sioux Falls, which has weather records dating more than a century. And that’s meant trouble for the construction industry. SENT: 235 words.
PIERRE, S.D. — When Dennis Daugaard was first elected governor in 2011, his wife Linda Daugaard was told to take things a little easy for the first six months of her husband’s term. It was advice the first lady promptly disregarded as soon as she found South Dakota’s children were in need of some attention. Daugaard also focused on South Dakota’s infant mortality rate in her first year. Now, with a new governor slated to be elected in November, as her husband is restricted by term limits from seeking election again, Daugaard is looking forward to other luxuries of life in the private sector. By Alex Portal, Black Hills Pioneer. SENT IN ADVANCE: 1043 words.
BROOKINGS, S.D. — If you grow up playing football in Nebraska, you want to play for the Cornhuskers. That’s a given. But if you’re a Division I caliber player and the Huskers don’t offer you a scholarship, Dan Jackson is ready to pounce. Jackson is the South Dakota State recruiting coordinator, an Omaha native and a former Jackrabbit player. And since joining the SDSU coaching staff in 2012, he’s been doggedly mining his home state for players he believes will help take the Jacks to the top of the FCS mountain.
