We had a great night for it and it went really well." said Tyler Laffey, who is Vern Eide's finance manager and organized the event.
Mitchell Christian High School sent off a class of six seniors Saturday during its commencement exercises, prideful of its class makeup, even if small in size. In his commencement address, Salutatorian Aaron Lemon noted three of the six students have been part of the class from the start, when they had 10 students at the pre-kindergarten level. That includes himself, Valedictorian Wes Vander Pol and Alexa Van Laecken.
The largest Mitchell High School graduating class since 2006 put a bow on their careers as Kernels Sunday.

There's a long list of things Larry Hornstra has done in his 50 years of service at Armour High School, and he's proud of all of them. This is Hornstra's final year of teaching, mostly math classes. He arrived in the fall of 1964 and taught English in his first year before moving to senior high math, with a year of physics along the way. Hornstra has also been working before and after the bell, too. Since 1975, he's driven bus for the school. For more than 30 years, he's directed the three-act play. He's taught speech.
OACOMA -- In the debate regarding a potential $52.5 million casino on its outskirts, the town of Oacoma voiced its opposition to the project quite clearly Thursday night. In a public forum at the Oacoma Community Center, town board president Mike Schreiber led an hour-long talk about the proposed Lower Brule Sioux Tribe casino. He reiterated, as the city had last fall in a 38-page document submitted to the U.S. Department of Interior, that a casino of that size would be too big and too imposing for the town of 450 people to handle.

For both Kim Weitala and John Claggett, they'll attempt to build on their current terms on the Davison County Commission for the next four years. Both are Republicans running unopposed in their respective districts and will stay on the Commission for another four years. Both commissioners cited roads and bridges as being the most talked about issue in the county, and both expect it to be a hot topic in the coming years. "It's the number one thing I hear about," Weitala said. Because both ran unopposed, they automatically earn their seats back as commissioners.
