HOWARD -- Students cheered and sang along to Queen's "We are the Champions" on Tuesday as Howard Elementary celebrated being named a National Blue Ribbon School. Chris Noid, the school's principal, told the nearly 200 students gathered for the celebration to always give their best and to set goals for their future. "If you do that, I really believe you can achieve what you want to do," Noid said The U.S. Department of Education named this year's National Blue Ribbon Schools in October, with 337 schools recognized nationwide, including four in South Dakota.
It has been nearly six months since a multimillion dollar renovation of the Corn Palace began, but much the work is still hard to see from outside the brick-and-mural facade of the building. Inside, though, work on the city-owned arena and tourist attraction continues on a nearly daily basis as the expected completion date for the project, April 3, draws closer.
PLANKINTON -- Paul Mayclin works inside his farm shop in rural Aurora County and hardly notices the cars and trucks rolling by right outside on U.S. Highway 281. Still, Mayclin is grateful the road is there. "We are blessed, or lucky, this place is on (U.S. Highway) 281," Mayclin told The Daily Republic in an interview Thursday. U.S. Highway 281, which is maintained by the state, is one of the few paved roads in Aurora County, a largely rural area with a population of 2,710.
