PIERRE (AP) — Law enforcement agencies in central South Dakota teamed up last week to conduct checks on 99 registered sex offenders in the region. The U.S. Marshals Service says officials are continuing to investigate a handful of cases in which sex offenders might be prosecuted for breaking the law. Sex offenders must register where they live and work, and they can be prosecuted if the information they register is inaccurate. The U.S. Marshals Service is the primary law enforcement agency responsible for investigating sex offender registration violations.

PICKSTOWN -- Boaters and local and federal officials banded together over the weekend to rescue an injured bald eagle. Chad Peters, of Wagner, said he was boating on the Missouri River above the Fort Randall Dam by Pickstown on Saturday afternoon when he and family members saw a big bird in the water. Peters said upon closer inspection the bird looked like it was struggling, either from a broken wing or being tangled up in something.
JUNEAU, Alaska -- Up here, many folks don't much like President Barack Obama's vision of a big government colossus dictating health care, doling out entitlements, and generally meddling in the affairs of the citizenry.
