Sopping up the season

Russell Wilde - Staff Reporter
By mid-afternoon Saturday, it was apparent.
The rain had won and for the second time in its 30 year history,  Sights & Sounds of Christmas was forced to cancel. From 3 until 8 p.m., park staff, vendors and volunteers worked to clear the site while minimizing damage.
“We used plywood to help get trailers out without leaving ruts,” said Bert Stratemann, parks operations manager. He says they were able to get vendors out with very little damage to the park.

Residents react to pipeline decision

Anita Miller - Managing Editor
The federal government’s decision not to grant an easement allowing the Dakota Access pipeline to proceed through lands sacred to the Sioux was met with guarded optimism on the part of some local residents.
On Sunday, word came that the easement would not be granted by  the US Army Corps of Engineers (USACE). The Corps also said it would explore other routes for the pipeline, which had already been re-routed once because of drinking water concerns.
