The dreaded drop-off. As parents, we've all experienced it. Whether it's for work, a vacation or a night away, the drop-off is inevitable. Sooner or later, someone else is going to have to watch your child. And while leaving your little loved one can result in a number of outcomes from them, the feeling for Mom and Dad is typically the same. Blue. Somber. Sad. In three-plus years of being a father, I've experienced at least a few of the drop-off debacles that can happen. Drop-off scenario 1: Kicking and/or screaming, squeezing and crying.
MITCHELL, S.D. — Poachers, beware. Hunters trespassing and anglers fishing without a license continue to be the most-issued citations by state conservation officers.

MITCHELL, S.D. -- Significant South Dakota drought has shot down the state’s pheasant population. The South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks Department’s annual survey released Friday morning, Aug. 25, shows a 45 percent decline statewide in the number of pheasants per mile compared to 2016. The results showed a statewide pheasants-per-mile index of 1.68, down from last year’s index of 3.05.
PIERRE, S.D.—A bill has been drafted that seeks compromise between property owners and outdoor enthusiasts who wish to recreate on 28 lakes that have formed mostly in northeast South Dakota over private land because of heavy precipitation over the past many years. The proposed solution for the lakes listed in the bill that currently have restricted access would be that they are open to the public but a new South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks commission process allows landowners to petition to have access restricted.
PIERRE, S.D.— Gov. Dennis Daugaard anticipates a proposal to be offered next session on the public's use of lakes that have developed because of excessive flooding on private property—mostly in northeast South Dakota. Daugaard also hasn't ruled out a special session this year Last month, the state Supreme Court ruling said that the Legislature must determine whether members of the public may enter or use any of the non-meandered water or ice overlying private property for any recreational use, mostly fishing.
To all the nurses out there, how do you do it? Really, how can you stick people with needles on a daily basis, watch blood flow into that little container and not get woozy? You're all superheroes in my book. Same goes with my wife, who gives blood as routinely as breathing. It's a phenomenal process, really — wife sits down, nurse comes in, needle goes in her arm and about 20 seconds later they're done. OK, so that may seem simple, but holy cow, I hate blood draws.
VIRGIL, S.D. — Sprih Harsh moved nearly 8,000 miles from her home in India to study South Dakota's pheasants. So when she first met with state Game, Fish & Parks Department officials about the project, the 28-year-old working toward her doctorate in wildlife science was met with a big pot of pheasant soup. "Eating my own subject was weird," she said, laughing, "but it tasted good."
MITCHELL, S.D. — Now in a state of emergency, thousands of South Dakotans who saw their holiday lights turn off from the weekend storm are still waiting for power to return. Gov.
