It's official: Dakotafest has been sold, just weeks before the opening day of the annual agricultural trade show near Mitchell.

Advocates for tighter investment banking controls want South Dakota's congressional contingent in Washington, D.C., to get on board with a movement to reinstate the Glass-Steagall Act. The 1933 act aimed to curb the speculative investment excesses that led to the stock market Crash of 1929 and the Great Depression. The nation has apparently forgotten the lessons of that earlier time, said Robert Hockett, 62, of Pierre, who unsuccessfully ran for the Democratic nomination for governor in 2002.
Mitchell's Veterans of Foreign Wars chapter wants to sell its Main Street building to the city of Mitchell and move to another location, but the vets hope the city will offer a higher price than the $150,000 currently on the table.

The nine cows raised a total of about $8,200. Program backers hope that generosity will be duplicated at sale barns statewide. While the donated cows won't be going to college, the money from their sale will be used to fund a new $4.1 million South Dakota State University Cow-Calf Education and Research facility.
Local businessman-developer John Clarke appeared before the Davison County commissioners Tuesday at the courthouse in Mitchell to finalize details for county Tax Increment Financing District 3. Clarke, accompanied by attorney Don Petersen, signed the agreement on behalf of his development Edgerton Place LLC, which broke ground last week.
Counties and cities using tax increment financing must demand accountability from developers, economic development specialist Toby Morris told government leaders Tuesday at the Davison County Courthouse in Mitchell. "If a city or county is going to pass a TIF, they should want accountability on the developer's side. It's a public-private partnership," he said.
