United Way honors Jacobson for service

Friday, January 30, 2015

Amid all of the dancing and singing Thursday, one of those valuable behind-the-scenes persons quietly was honored.

Ed Jacobson was recognized during Thursday night’s Capital Area United Way’s “Dancing With the Stars” celebration. Today is Jacobson’s final day as he retires after more than five years as the organization’s executive assistant.

Jacobson says he has long understood the importance of a United Way. Jacobson says whatever community he worked in, he always checked in with that city’s United Way organization.

It was a little more than five years ago that Jacobson joined the Capital Area United Way. He says the opportunity came at the right time just as then-executive director Gloria Hanson was beginning that job.

Being part of the United Way, Jacobson says, has given him more of an appreciation of the Pierre-Fort Pierre area and those organizations who do so much for others.

While he may be retiring, Jacobson says he won’t be going away. Jacobson says he still plans to be a United Way volunteer.

City submits recommendations to DOT

Friday, January 30, 2015

As planned, the city of Pierre is expected to submit its air service recommendations to the U.S. Department of Transportation by today.

That federal agency had given the city until today to comment on the DOT’s tentative decision to reject the application of Aerodynamics, Inc. to receive an Essential Air Service subsidy to fly daily flights between Pierre and Denver. The city had selected ADI from three applicants.

But city commissioners Tuesday agreed to ask for an extension on providing comments until the end of February. The reason is that negotiations continue between the DOT and ADI.

Mayor Laurie Gill says the city was given some options to consider by the Department of Transportation. Gill says the commission believes it is prudent to wait until more information is available before making comments.

Speaking on the KCCR’s “Ask the Mayor” program this week, Gill admits that it is difficult to wait for the DOT and ADI to resolve its differences before decisions are made on the Pierre air service. But she says this is the best option for the community.

“Destination Deadwood” bill introduced again

Friday, January 30, 2015

Legislation that a Pierre lawmaker calls his “Destination Deadwood” bill has been introduced again this year.

Representative Tim Rounds says the bill, which eventually was killed last year, would allow Deadwood officials, if they decide so, to allow establishments with on-sale liquor licenses to sell, serve, or allow alcohol to be consumed on those premises covered by that liquor license to sell alcoholic beverages at any time except Christmas Day.

Rounds says the bill’s intent is to let those businesses sell alcoholic drinks around-the-clock provided the city of Deadwood approves. He says the voters could also approve or reject such an idea as well.

If approved, Rounds says other cities may want the same opportunity. Rounds says this is a chance to see if such a proposal would work.

Having such legislation will also make it safer for those drinking at different times of the day, according to Rounds.

House Bill 1123 has been referred to the House Commerce and Energy Committee. Rounds is chairman of the committee.

Juveniles cause ruckus at Hop Scotch

Human curiosity was just too much for a group of area juveniles to overcome Thursday night.

The Stanley County Sheriff’s Office says a group of four, with at least two of them ages 12 or 13, try to get into the Hop Scotch in Fort Pierre. That club, of course, is famous (or infamous if you like) for its female adult dancers.

Chief Deputy Greg Swanson says the group tried to enter the club at 8:42 p.m. Swanson says he thinks the four were trying to take photos and experience the environment. “They were trying to get in to see the adult stuff that was going on,” he says.

Club employees stopped the four at the door. Swanson says there was a scuffle and one of the juveniles bit an employee on the hand. Swanson says the injury did not appear to be serious.

One juvenile pulled out a pocket knife. Swanson says the knife was brandished and eventually dropped. It has been recovered. Swanson says there was no stabbing.

The four juveniles took off running to the west. Sheriff’s deputies looked for, but could not find the youth.

Swanson says the Sheriff’s Office has a good description of the four. He says the investigation continues. “Never underestimate the testosterone level of males age 12 and 13,” Swanson says.
