PIERRE -- The state Department of Agriculture isn't backing down from its goal to require better labeling including freshness dates on raw milk sold commercially in South Dakota. Department officials plan another public hearing, this time on Oct. 9, in hope of getting the labeling rules into effect yet this year. Last month, the Legislature's rules review committee refused on a 3-2 vote to accept the proposed rules. One reason for the rejection was the department hadn't adequately researched the potential expense to raw-milk producers for labeling.

In 1965, as political tensions escalated in southeast Asia and specifically in Vietnam, President Lyndon Johnson assured America that he was thoroughly against sending U.S. troops abroad to fight a war that had nothing to do with our country. "We are not about to send American boys 9,000 or 10,000 miles away from home to do what Asian boys ought to be doing for themselves," Johnson said during a nationally televised speech. Of course, America did jump into Vietnam, and we did it during Johnson's tenure. What a morass it turned out to be.
Councilman Travis Carpenter argued vehemently for buying the Longhorn for $1, and I angrily opposed him. I won, and the city didn't buy the building at that time. Travis left the council at the end of his term, and the Longhorn sat there, progressively getting worse. Eventually, I came to admit Councilman Carpenter had been right; the city needed to buy the building and move on.
