Demolition begins at Capitol Inn and Suites

Friday, February 27, 2015

It appears that demolition of the burned-out debris of the Capitol Inn and Suites has begun.

The hotel-apartment complex was destroyed by fire in November. Since then, the fire scene at 815 East Wells Avenue has been barricaded off by a steel fence.

Some work was done Friday with a portion of the northeast side of the building pulled down. Skid loaders and other heavy equipment have been moved to the scene.

When the demolition work would begin has been a matter of conjecture. City officials have said in recent weeks that they had not heard from the complex owner about a time line.

Michels doesn’t see many legislative road blocks

Friday, February 27, 2015

Lieutenant Governor Matt Michels says he doesn’t expect many legislative surprises in the last two weeks of the session.

Michels sat in for Governor Dennis Daugaard  at Friday’s legislative press conference. While there are still major legislative decisions to be made, Michels says he doesn’t foresee any last minute issues cropping up that could stall the process.

In some past sessions, legislators have had to suspend the legislative rules to deal with last-minute issues such as public safety.  So far, Michels says, that doesn’t seem to be a problem this year.

Legislators will not meet Monday. When they return Tuesday, there will be nine days left in the main run of the session, which ends March 13.

Sunday first day to circulate petitions for city, school races

Friday, February 27, 2015

Sunday is the first day for candidates to circulate petitions for city commission and school board races to be decided in the June 2 election.

On the Pierre City Commission, there are two seats open. Incumbents Jamie Huizenga and Jim Mehlhaff have said they will run for re-election.

There are also two positions open this year on the Pierre School Board. Once again, the two incumbents, Randy Hartmann and Dennis James, are expected to run for new terms.

It will be an interesting election year for the Stanley County School Board where four of five positions are open. The reason is that in the last year, appointments had to be made to fill two board seats that became open due to resignations.

Usually each school board seat is for a three year term. But because the appointments were made in the middle of a term, that changes the length of term the winners will receive for that particular seat.

Stanley County School Board patrons will select two people to fill two seats for three years each. Those seats are currently held by Gary Johnson and Tina Titze.

Also to be filled is one school board seat for two years and one seat for one year. The other two board members who will be up for election this year are Shaun Leafgreen and Darla Tibbs, both appointed to fill vacancies last year.

School officials were unable Friday to say which seat either of them holds and how many years are left in either’s term.

Deadline to submit nominating petitions for any of the races is March 31. Winners will take office at the July meetings for their respective governmental entities.
