The Corn Palace's largest dome gently swayed in the breeze Thursday before it was safely lowered to the street below. Now, the Corn Palace sits dome-less, as a two-phase, nearly $7.2 million renovation of the city-owned arena and tourist attraction takes a major step forward -- visually, at least.
The Corn Palace will soon be decorated with murals celebrating the 125th anniversary of South Dakota's statehood. On Wednesday, the Corn Palace announced next year's mural theme will be "South Dakota's 125th," and will include images of the state's Capitol building, a horse-drawn wagon, a cattle roper, gold miners, a paddle steamer, a bison, a farm, a wolf and an American Indian. With construction ongoing throughout the summer on a two-phase, nearly $7.2 million renovation of the Corn Palace, the murals will be put up as construction allows, according to Micaela Erickson, a Corn Palace box o
A catfish slipped through B.J. Schall's hands and landed in a small tank with a splash, spraying water across the deck of the boat. But in a moment, the wriggling fish was snatched up again and kept under control just long enough to be measured and weighed Wednesday morning before getting tossed back into the lake.

It's been nearly a month since Mitchell voters approved an ordinance allowing wine service on downtown sidewalks, and so far no businesses have applied for a permit to take part in sales. The ordinance, which was approved with the support of 60 percent of voters in the June 3 election, allows any downtown business making at least half of its total income from food sales to apply for a permit to sell and serve wine on adjacent sidewalks.
Demolition likely to continue through August. Construction began in early June on a two-phase, nearly $7.2 million renovation of the Corn Palace.
Vote of 5-2 means building will remain until at least late August. Only one bid was submitted for the demolition of the old VFW building, a $216,742 bid from Ironman Construction, of Tyndall.
The Mitchell City Council will consider tonight whether to award a bid for the demolition of the old Veterans of Foreign Wars building. The agenda includes a 6:15 p.m. Public...
WESSINGTON SPRINGS -- Only moments after a tornado ripped through her neighborhood, Alicia Roesler stood on the street in front of her home with her two young daughters close by and saw the devastation for the first time. "I think I was just in shock," Roesler said. "I just couldn't believe it actually happened. I don't think it hit me for a couple of days." The home where Roesler and her husband, Aaron, and daughters, Alexis, 5, and Lily, 3, lived in southeastern Wessington Springs was in the path of the tornado that hit the town June 18, but was still standing after the storm passed.
Businesses in Mitchell have donated nearly $3,000 to help the victims of the June 18 tornado in Wessington Springs, and a few checks are still being collected. Cathy Weber, owner of The Little Red Hen, and Robin Weins, owner of Crazy About Cupcakes, organized the recent fundraising drive to help victims of the tornado. Weber said Tuesday that $2,944.13 has already been collected, and checks still need to be collected from about five of the 25 businesses that took part. Weber said a few individuals also donated to the effort. "It's wonderful. It was a lot of fun," Weber said.
