After 15 months of meeting in the Mitchell Christian School gymnasium, Mitchell Wesleyan Church held what it called an "out-of-exile party." The Rev. Keith Nash chuckles at the name, meant to describe how it felt to hold services in the new church sanctuary on July 28 for the first time since moving out when the project started in May 2012. "It was like coming home," said Nash, senior pastor at the church. "We just felt like we were finally back to normal again." He added that the "exile" was made much easier by Mitchell Christian allowing the church to rent space.

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. -- The stage is set. Literally. After nearly two weeks of appearances, rehearsals and preliminary competitions in preparation for the Miss America Pageant in Atlantic City, N.J., Miss South Dakota Tessa Dee, of Mitchell, said it's been a whirlwind. Preliminary winners were named each night in the talent and lifestyle and fitness categories, and though Dee did not win any of them, she is happy with how things went.
The competition was cut in half during the second round of the Palace City Prize Pies contest Thursday at The Daily Republic. Five judges evaluated eight pies in four rounds. Winners were Rita Baumgart, of Mitchell, with a glazed apple cream pie; Bonny Sperlich-Warnke, of Mitchell, with an apple pie; Sharon Christensen, of Mitchell, with a Snicker pie; and Marlys Paulsen, of Ethan, with a sour cream raisin pie.
DELMONT -- Don't say there's nothing to do in Delmont this weekend. The 17th annual Kuchen Festival and the 10th annual Twin Rivers Old Iron Association Old Time Harvest Festival will run Saturday and Sunday in and near Delmont. Event organizers said the two festivals are separate events, but will run simultaneously and typically bring in some cross traffic. Earla Strid, of Delmont, said there will be more kuchen than ever -- more than 1,300, all made with Strid's secret family recipe.
Like Hank Williams Jr. sang, some things are a family tradition. For the women in Nicole Boomsma's family, it's rodeo queening. The 23-year-old Stickney native recently took home her fifth crown when she was named Miss Faith Stock Show and Rodeo Queen in August. "It's such an honor to represent rodeo," said Boomsma, now of Mitchell. "I'm so happy to be in this position."
