Mitchell police are looking for a driver of a vehicle who hit a bicyclist Wednesday evening. Sgt. Dave Beintema, of the Mitchell Police Division, said a Mitchell man was riding his bike north at 7:19 p.m. in the 1700 block of Main Street of Mitchell when a white, four-door Pontiac turned into the McDonald's parking lot and collided with the cyclist. After the collision, the cyclist, Addison Avery, 20, was brought to Avery's home by the driver of the vehicle. "It sounds like the man riding the bike insisted the driver not call police," Beintema said.

For at least the last decade, population in the Black Hills region has been growing faster than in South Dakota as a whole, according to recent U.S. Census data.

The only period when growth rates slipped was from 2004 to 2005, when population in the state and the region increased by just 0.66 percent.

PRESHO -- Child pornography charges have been dismissed against a Presho man after he died in early January.

Lyman County State's Attorney Anita Fuoss confirmed Tuesday that Maranville is dead and that was the reason the charges were dismissed. The dismissal was filed with the Lyman County clerk of courts Feb. 10.

After meeting the requirements established in the Enabling Act, South Dakota's admission to the Union was formally granted by President Benjamin Harrison on Nov. 2, 1889.
