Clerk of Courts, police scam reported in Pierre

Friday, November 28, 2014

The “pay your fine by sending money or go to jail” scam has been reported again in Pierre.

Pierre Police Captain Derald Gross says police have received calls from two residents reporting they had received calls identifying themselves from the Clerk of Courts office. The person also said they were a police officer.

Gross says the caller tells the person that they have either a fine or outstanding warrants. They are told to send the caller money to avoid going to jail.

Gross says this is nothing but a scam. He says neither the Clerk of Courts nor the police solicit fines or warrant payments by telephone.

People receiving such a call should not provide any personal or financial information and should contact law enforcement at 773-7410.

Gross says the two who had received the call hung up. He says that is what other residents should do as well.

Holidays bring fire risk

Friday, November 28, 2014

With the holidays now officially started, the State’s Fire Marshal urges people to be more careful with fires.

Paul Merriam says in a press release that there is more of a chance of fires because there are more risks: More cooking, Christmas trees in home, holiday lighting and decorative candles. He says each presents a potential risk.

Merriam says one of the most important things is to have working smoke alarms in the home.

Forney-Cronin Studio performance this weekend

Friday, November 28, 2014

Members of the Forney-Cronin Dance Studio start the holiday season off on the right foot this weekend.

The studio is hosting its annual holiday performance. This year the production is “A Toy Maker’s Dream.”

Performances are tonight and Saturday at the Riggs High School Theatre. Tickets are $5 each. All proceeds go to the Forney-Cronin Fine Arts Scholarship Fund.

 

Rounds continues preparations

 

There is one month left before U.S. Senator-elect Mike Rounds takes office and he says there is still much to do.

 

During a meeting with reporters earlier this month, Rounds says he has been busy putting together a staff and dealing with office space, both in Washington and South Dakota. Rounds says he is also working on various issues that are important to the state. He says many of those issues will be worked on jointly with the other two members of the state’s congressional delegation – Senator John Thune and Representative Kristi Noem.

 

Rounds                                                8443

 

Rounds says there are many issues important to South Dakotans that will be discussed in the next session of Congress.

Retailers encouraged as holiday season begins

 

A South Dakota Retailers Association survey indicates that many of its members are expecting a good holiday shopping season.

 

Executive Director Shawn Lyons says those members responding to the group’s annual survey expect a good holiday season. He says there is more encouragement entering this year than in 2013.

 

Lyons                                                  8444

 

As always, Lyons says the success of the agricultural industry will determine how much people spend for the holidays, especially in the smaller communities.

 

Lyons                                                  8445

 

Many smaller, local businesses are striving to be different compared to the big national chains, according to Lyons. He says it comes down to giving shoppers a reason to stop in.

 

Lyons                                                  8446

 

As far as the top gifts, Lyons says it comes down again to electronics – especially head phones and computers. He says many members expect good sales this year for clothing, furniture and appliances.
