TYNDALL—Dave Boska had a big impact on a lot of people. That's the memory two of his daughters shared Friday, nine days after the 72-year-old Tyndall man drowned on a windy day on Lake Francis Case near Pickstown. On the afternoon of July 23, Boska was fishing from his boat with his wife and lab, Chester, and Boska attempted to pull up the anchor when he fell into the water and later drowned. Authorities recovered his body after about an hour of searching. "For me, it's still pure numbness," said Boska's youngest daughter, Amanda Willuweit.

Favorable weather for a second consecutive year is helping to increase South Dakota's pheasant numbers after a period of a declining population, giving hunters reason to be optimistic for the upcoming season.

Some of my earliest memories growing up are Saturday morning cartoons. I'd like to think most people from my generation got to experience waking up, crawling out of bed and meandering to the couch with a blanket and pillow to watch some of these early '90s classic cartoons: • "Bobby's World" • "Taz-Mania" • "Sonic the Hedgehog" • "Darkwing Duck" • And, of course, my favorite, the "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles." Watching Saturday morning cartoons was the greatest part of the week.
