OUR VIEW: Daugaard for another four years
On Election Day 2010, when then-Lt. Gov. Dennis Daugaard became South Dakota's governor, he felt voters supported him because he pledged to boost the state's economy by creating new jobs and balancing the state's budget. "I'm ready and anxious to tackle both of them," Daugaard said...

OUR VIEW: Changing open enrollment may deny kids opportunities
It's rare that we succumb to the phrase "student-athlete." Some institutions insist upon using it, but we rarely do, considering it repetitive. After all, everybody knows all athletes in high school and college are, indeed, students. Today, however, that phrase comes to mind as we...

OUR VIEW: City Council grants too much weight to words of few citizens
Alcohol can't be consumed on sidewalks outside of restaurants, the City Council has declared. In the end, we shrug and figure this isn't a hill worth fighting for. To use another cliché, there are bigger fish to fry. Yet it doesn't mean we weren't scratching our heads after the...

OTHER VIEW: Pawlenty campaign blown out
Tim Pawlenty's presidential bid never caught fire because -- not to put too fine a point on it -- he's not a fiery guy. The former Minnesota governor was among the first to jump into the Republican presidential sweepstakes pool. On Sunday, he was the first to get out. His distant...
