Forestburg

County residents have recently noticed that Ruskin Park’s historic marker has been damaged, with the sign torn off the pole. According to Sheriff Tom Fridley, the Department of Transportation discovered the sign lying in the grass. The cause of the damage is unknown, though it is speculated to have been hit by a construction crew. The sign is currently in the DOT’s possession as they see whether or not it can be repaired. 

Over the weekend of Dec. 18 and 19, three local young men competed in the Matt Triplett Invitational Bull Riding event held in Sioux Falls. On Saturday night, Tanner Christian, a seventh grader from Woonsocket, won the mini bull exhibition, and Layton Zoss, a sixth grader from Forestburg, got second. Mason Moody, a junior from Letcher, got second in the invitational, finishing just 1.5 points behind Professional Bull Riding great, Jess Lockwood. 

It was a successful weekend for Sanborn County in the bull riding arena, and we look forward to seeing more of this success in the future.

On the night of Friday, Nov. 27, the Town and Country Fire District of Woonsocket answered a fire call to a fire reported south of Forestburg. Once the trucks were called out and on their way, it was confirmed that it was just a large controlled fire started by Charlie Zoss of Forestburg, who was burning off a slough, and someone driving past must have thought the fire was unattended and called it in. According to Fire Chief Travis Coulthard, the fire department was actually not needed, but it was good that someone called it in to be sure it wasn’t something more serious.
