There's a picture of painted toenails against the background of a cool, blue pool. A proud dad with a newborn son. A garage project. A thick, smoked brisket. These are all responses by federal workers explaining how they spent their furlough day. Nice, right?
RAPID CITY-- The State A Legion Baseball Tournament got off to a rough start for the Mitchell Post 18 Legion team. Despite recording 11 hits, Mitchell fell to Sioux Falls West 9-4 Wednesday at Fitzgerald Stadium in Rapid City. During the nine-inning game, Post 18 left 13 runners on base. "We gave ourselves a chance every single inning, but we just didn't have hits when we needed them," Mitchell baseball coach Luke Norden said. "It's not disappointing that we lost; it is disappointing that we didn't perform well.

2 Guns Academy Award winner Denzel Washington and Mark Wahlberg star in this new action comedy. They play undercover agents from two competing bureaus. Both are working undercover in a Mexican drug cartel but neither knows the other is actually a cop.

As this July forever fades into this August and the sweaty, hardworking part of high summer slides into the sleepier, dog days of late summer, our hired hands in Washington, D.C., have less than 20 legislative days to put up a year's worth of hay before Congressional winter begins Sept. 30. They won't make it. The hay will not be cut, it won't get baled and it won't be in the barn when it will be needed. And it will be needed; there's never been a year when it wasn't.

It wasn't long ago that we would have cringed at the thought of allowing golf carts on streets within the city of Mitchell. It just seemed that the slower, smaller vehicles would cause headaches to regular, and conventional, cars and trucks that motor along the city's busy roadways. That, however, was before four-wheelers and mo-ped-like conveyances became commonplace on this city's streets. Nowadays, it's difficult to drive anywhere in town and not encounter someone buzzing along on four-wheelers, which not long ago were limited to places like pastures and mountain paths.
An area man was recently elected chairman of the board of directors for the South Dakota Soybean Research & Promotion Council. Marc Reiner, a soybean farmer from Tripp, was elected to the position. Reiner is a fifth-generation farmer and raises soybeans, corn, wheat, alfalfa, beef cattle and hogs on his farm. Reiner has served on the SDSRPC board since 2006, and he is currently the SDSRPC's representative to the United States Meat Export Federation. "As soybean production continues to increase in our state, it is really an exciting time to be involved in the soybean industry," Reiner said.
