Most incumbents on the ballot for the June 7 Primary Election were successful in keeping their chance at running in November to keep their seat. John Thune, Dusty Johnson and Kristi Noem all beat their opponents quite easily. Although Incumbent Lance Koth, District 20 State Representative, lost to both his challengers in Sanborn County, he did win a chance at re-election throughout the district. Incumbent Rod Weber lost his seat as a Sanborn County Commissioner to his challenger Duane Peterson. Finally, the only part of the primary that was non-partisan was Amendment C, and it was defeated in Sanborn County and all over the state. Please see full results for each precinct in Sanborn County on page 8 of this week’s issue of the Sanborn Weekly Journal.

Mason Moody of Letcher won his second consecutive bull-riding championship at the South Dakota High School Rodeo Finals over the weekend. He finished the ride in both rounds of bull riding and made the short go. He had a great ride in the short go to finish as the South Dakota high school champion bull rider for the second year in a row. 

Moody also qualified for state in the calf roping and team roping events. In calf roping, he caught the calf in both of the initial rounds and made the short go in that event, as well; however, he missed in the short go and finished in 13th for that event. In each round of the team roping, one of the riders missed, so he didn’t make it to the short go.

pictured ABOVE is the new area that was added onto the west side of the Woonsocket Fire Hall. It is much needed space for equipment and new trucks.

On Sunday, June 12, the Woonsocket Volunteer Fire Department held an open house at the Fire Hall in Woonsocket, allowing residents to visit and tour the building to show off its new addition that almost doubled the space that the building previously had. The open house consisted of a pork loin and hot dog feed, a bouncy house and an obstacle course. Approximately 180 people attended the event.

The original fire hall building was finished in September 1976. On Sept. 9, 2020, the fire hall accepted bids for the new addition. Construction on the addition began the first week of November of 2020 and was completed mid-June of 2021. The addition added 3,000 square feet and brought the total area of the fire hall to 6,144 square feet.
