Even with the the awarding of the money, there are no winners here. It was a bad thing that happened to the Russells, and it’s been a long fight for them to win this lawsuit. The whole thing has been bad publicity for the city of Mitchell and the Corn Palace.
Arrests for driving under the influence have declined each of the past three years statewide and each of the past four years in Davison County.
Law enforcement officials say the trend is driven by a variety of factors, including an aggressive program to keep DUI offenders from drinking, public awareness of sobriety checkpoints and the rise of new taxi services.
Tami Workman remembers 18 years ago when her then-2-year-old daughter let herself out of their apartment at 3 a.m.
The incident ended safely with the return of her daughter, but the feeling of dread was never forgotten.
As Workman was driving a Palace Transit bus last week in Mitchell, the memory of that maternal panic came rushing back as a call came over the radio telling all drivers in the public transportation system to look for a missing 3-year-old boy.
In July, according to Art Streetman, the city of Mitchell fired him from his job as a Palace Transit bus driver.
In August, Streetman and his wife, Anita, started a competing business called E-Z Ride Taxi.
