Scouting for Food Drive Saturday

Friday, October 24, 2014

Local Scouts will hit the streets Saturday looking for food.

The annual Scouting for Food drive is Saturday. Residents are asked to leave food at their door steps and scouts will pick them up.

Donations will go to the Pierre-Fort Pierre Food Pantry. Laura White, executive director of the Pierre Area Referral Service, says the Scouts’ drive is one of the pantry’s major ones of the year.

Scouts left bags at homes throughout the week. But residents, who were missed, can use other bags for donations as well. When making donations, no glass items and watch for expiration dates.

White says if missed, residents can drop off donations to the Food Pantry at 110 South Ree Street.

Daugaard prepares for another Governor’s Hunt

Friday, October 24, 2014

Birds – and business prospects – will be hunted during this weekend’s annual  Governor’s Pheasant Hunt.

The hunt is a traditional economic development effort where business can be mixed with pleasure. Governor Dennis Daugaard says he gets a chance to promote the South Dakota with company officials in both the field and during the evening events.

Daugaard says representatives of 28 business prospects and four professional-type groups that work with companies South Dakota is interested in have been invited to the hunt. The hunt includes the hunt, evening activities and other events.

What is amazing, Daugaard says, is the number of property owners and volunteers who are willing to be part of the hunt each year.

The hunt is one of three such economic development efforts held each year. The others are the Governor’s Golf Classic and Buffalo Roundup.

City begins review of EAS subsidy proposals

Friday, October 24, 2014

Pierre city officials are putting together the process in how it will review the three proposals offered to provide an Essential Air Service subsidy-funded route for Pierre to a major hub.

Proposals are from Aerodynamics Incorporated of Beachwood, Ohio;  Boutique Air of San Francisco, California; and Great Lakes Aviation of Cheyenne, Wyoming. Great Lakes currently provides daily flights from Pierre to both Minneapolis and Denver.

Mayor Laurie Gill says the city has until November 17 to submit comments. She says a group of officials and consultants will review all of the proposals and then provide comments.

One hope, according to Gill, is to have private citizens on the committee as well.

After the review is completed, Gill says the comments and input will be presented to the city commission.
