Throughout the summer, people across South Dakota will be celebrating the culture and diversity of the LGBTQ community at Pride festivals, picnics and events across the state. Pride Festivals are a lot of fun, but they’re also a reminder that there’s still work to do in regards to LGBTQ equality in South Dakota. 

That’s why the ACLU of South Dakota has launched an online advocacy campaign to honor the lives and legacies of LGBTQ South Dakotans who are devoting their time to make this state a better place for their peers. The campaign features Riley Zoss, a Forestburg farmer and agricultural and engineering admissions representative at Mitchell Technical Institute.

The Forestburg home pictured above was leveled by a controlled burn. It was rental property that sat on the west edge of town on the north side of Highway 34. Most people would know it as the Nurnberg home from years ago. The property had been abandoned by the most recent renters and left in bad shape.

PIERRE – South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) officials want to remind snowmobilers that trail cameras offer a visual aid for current trail conditions across the state.

Trail cameras are located at Hardy Station, Savoy and the Kirk trailhead in the Black Hills. East River trails are utilizing four of South Dakota Department of Transportation’s (DOT) road conditions cameras. Those cameras are located at the junction of Highways 34 and 37 east of Forestburg, Highway 14 east of Cavour, Highway 81 south of Arlington, the junction of Highways 20 and 25 west of Wallace and the junction of Highways 10 and 25 at Lake City.

“We are excited to offer the trail cameras,” said Ryan Raynor, GFP snowmobile trails coordinator. “Oftentimes, areas like Rapid City or Sturgis may not be seeing snow, while the higher elevations are good for riding. The cameras are a great way to show people current conditions.”
