The show must go on — and it has. Despite trouble tracking down dancers earlier this summer, the Mitchell Area Community Theatre's first show of its new season, "The Producers," opens this weekend. "Things have gone very well over the last few weeks," play director Dan Miller told The Daily Republic via email. "We are still shy several people, but feel we have covered the best we can and can still deliver a wonderful theatrical event." "The Producers" shows at 7:30 p.m. Friday and Saturday and Aug. 15 and 16 and at 2 p.m. Sunday and Aug. 17 at the Pepsi-Cola Theatre in Mitchell.
PLATTE -- Following the golden rule has earned a Platte medical facility another gold medal. Platte Health Center Avera announced on Tuesday it received an Excellence through Insight award for the second year in a row. "We're a very small community, you treat each patient as you would yourself -- you know, the golden rule -- or as if it's a member of your family," Burket said. The national award is for overall emergency department experience patient satisfaction for hospitals under 100 beds by HealthStream Inc., according to Mark Burket, CEO of Platte Health Center Avera.

Lacey Lee, of Mitchell, will be the first featured artist at the Pepsi-Cola Theatre in Mitchell.
It's time to put Mitchell's talent on display. Mitchell Area Community Theatre Managing Director Megan Reimnitz said there have been a dearth of opportunities to showcase area artists, but the ACT hopes to remedy that. "We have so much untapped potential in this area," she said. "We have amazing artists that no one knows about." Reimnitz said Lacey Lee, of Mitchell, will be the first featured artist at the Pepsi-Cola Theatre in Mitchell. Lee is a painter whose talents with a brush include water color, acrylic and mixed media. "She's pretty diverse in her work," Reimnitz said.
Every once in a while, God graciously grants me a reality check. Sometimes these reality checks are hard and unyielding, and sometimes, like my recent Fourth of July holiday, they come in the soft, cherub-faced form of children. It happened during a game of Mario Kart. For those who don't know, the typical Mario Kart Wii race allows two people to race against each other. (It actually allows up to four, but I only have two Wii controllers. So, we can only race two at a time.) This was set up as a four-race competition.
Tessa Dee got fired over the weekend. That's how the 2013 Miss South Dakota title holder jokingly referred to Saturday's contest finals in Hot Springs, where she passed on her crown to the new Miss South Dakota.
