The heavy State Fair and Labor Day weekend traffic was bound to cause a few dangerous situations at a junction that already sees a large number of vehicles on a daily basis, so it is no surprise that a four-vehicle accident at the east junction of SD Highways 34 and 37 dampened a few people’s holiday weekend plans on Sunday morning. 

According to preliminary reports, at around 8:30 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 3, a pickup pulling a camper was headed east on SD Highway 34 and was approaching the junction. A truck was coming from the south on SD Highway 37 and also approaching the junction. The truck didn’t make a complete stop at the white line before the stop sign, which gave the impression that it wasn’t going to make a complete stop at all, so the pickup hauling the camper swerved to avoid getting hit and swerved into two vehicles that were in the turning lane waiting to turn south.

Cupcake challenge results

By Janet Maeschen

The cupcake challenge at 4-H Achievement Days was a delicious success. At this year’s event, there were 30 participants with a total of 19 entries. They could choose to enter as a team of two or individually. Ages ranged from 5 to 18 years old. Every entry had a different theme to decorate their homemade cupcakes and had to set up a small display.  The runner-up team was Hudson and Ramsey Fouberg with the rodeo theme.  The first-place winner was a bath time theme entered by Mary Catherine Hansen.  

All participants received a four-ounce jar of honey sponsored by the Town ‘N Kountry Kids Blue Group. The cupcakes were sold on a silent auction to raise money for Sanborn County 4-Hers attending National Congress this November.  Sanborn County is sending six youth to this awesome event.
