TRAXLER: Prep season was full of fun moments
Of all the varying sports we get to cover at The Daily Republic, high school sports are right at the top of my list. They involve kids who are putting forth great effort and while wins and losses are a focus in what gets documented, it's honest competition and competitiveness. In...

HAGEN: Communication 101 with a 1-year-old
The night could be a complete disaster. You know, one of those nights when patience is at a minimum because toys are scattered all over the house, food is smeared from the high chair to the floor and a couple temper-tantrums were thrown for whatever reason. But when our 19-month-old...

OUR VIEW: Guaranteed conservation is worth it for new fee
A new fee instituted on South Dakota's game licenses could generate much-needed funding to stabilize the future of hunting and fishing in our state. Kelly Hepler — secretary of South Dakota's Department of Game, Fish and Parks — said during a Pheasants Forever banquet...

Wiltz: South Dakota fishing my favorite, Wisconsin a close second
I was seated in the rear of my old Sea Nymph while Tom, a son-in-law, fished the side and grandson Sam fished the bow. We were over a weed bed that was 13 feet down. Half night crawlers were suspended by my two slip-bobber rigs when both bobbers dove under at the same time. I was...

OUR VIEW: Conservation officer job impressive
South Dakota's conservation officers are tasked with heavy duties. Most of all, they're responsible for protecting our state's wildlife laws and preserving conservation. They're on the lake, in the woods and trenching through fields. As one conservation officer described it to our...

LETTER: Can Congress correct this mess?
To the Editor: It may be happening already what I have been predicting all along. The crash of the stock market is usually the start of a major recession. No country, like any good business, can operate in a deficit for very long. There has to be a day of reckoning. The Republicans...

WOSTER: The science of playing dolls
I don't know how to "play dolls.'' Back in my younger days, I could play basketball and a little vacant-lot baseball. Even though I've grown older and don't participate in those sports, I still know how to play them. If the body were willing, the mind remains capable. What I'm...
