Awesome. That's the word used over and over to describe the Mitchell High School girls' basketball team Sunday. "People were just trying to come up with other ways to say the word awesome," said Dana Price, referring to media coverage of the girls' efforts during the Class AA state girls' basketball tournament over the weekend in Brookings. "You guys are just outstanding young people."

Being a country music star is still sinking in for Matt Thomas. As lead singer and guitar player for Parmalee, a rising star in the country music galaxy, Thomas said things like having the group's single "Carolina" hit No. 1 on the country charts, or touring with country megastar Jake Owen, don't seem real. "It's hard to explain. It's been fun," Thomas said. "I don't think we'll ever kind of get used to that."

More students, a new theater, bigger shows -- and Dan Miller is just getting warmed up. The Dakota Wesleyan University assistant professor of communication and theater, and director of theater, said the school's theater program has grown from just three student majors in 2003-2004 to 11 currently. In his eighth year at DWU, Miller said soon after he joined the program he started the school's bachelor of fine arts in theater. While Miller credits the growing program to a number of factors, he said the BFA is definitely one.
If ever there were a decade known for its music, it's the 1980s. Conjuring up images of big hair, bright colors and Madonna's off-the-shoulder shirts, the defining sounds of the '80s ranged from Michael Jackson's pop prowess to Poison power ballads. And it's a sound that's still sought-after, as this weekend's Corn Palace lineup can attest. Rockfest, where five rock bands will play for six hours, will start at 6 p.m. Saturday at the Palace. Tickets are $40 and available at the Corn Palace box office at 995-8430 or cornpalace.org.
