A chilly St. Patrick’s Day in Presho


Presho’s 37th Annual St. Patrick’s Day celebration was brought in by a March storm of wind and snow just days before the March 16 event. City crews worked all day Friday plowing the streets to haul off an estimated 6-inches of snow to get ready for the big event. Thirty-eight runners/walkers braved the 30 degree temperatures to participate in the 31st running of the Shamrock Shuffle.  Because of all the snow, ice and slush from the storm, the route was changed to a route on old Highway 16 west of town and back. The winners of the Shamrock Shuffle were Shay VanDenemel, Ft. Pierre with a time of 18:05 and the women’s winner was Kari Blasius from Kimball with a time of  27:05. The winning float in the parade was the Ancient Ireland, the Koenig float with a Jurassic Park theme. Coming in second place was Living in the Winter Paradise, an ice fishing float driven by Louie Slominski and friends riding along. Until next year, may the luck of the Irish be with you.

LHS Pep Band plays at Girls’ State B Tournament

 The Lyman High School pep band served as ‘Band of the Day’ at the Girls’ Class B State Basketball Tournament held at the Huron Arena on Thursday, March 7, 2019. The band, under the direction of D. Scott and Julie Muirhead, played prior to each of the four contests and at halftime for each. The band performed all 37 selections in the pep folder, six different school songs, and the national anthem. Lyman band director, D. Scott Muirhead commented, “Huron was an outstanding host. We have played at 14 state events in the 27 years I’ve been at Lyman. The Huron Arena was clearly the ‘best fit’ venue we’ve ever had for our group.” Huron Arena Manager, Terry Rotert, said of the Lyman Band in an e-mail sent to the director, “It was an honor to host your band. Not only did they sound great, they were very well behaved and respectful. That is a tribute to you as their director. Thanks again for sharing your band with the fans in attendance. It was a great day in the Huron Arena.” The Lyman High School pep band typically plays at a state tournament on a bi-annual basis, but in an unusual twist performed at both the state football championships and the Girls’ B Basketball tournament during the 2018-19 school year.

Lyman School approves borrowing $2.3 million for building project

Lyman School Board approves borrowing $2.3 million for building project
  
Members of the Lyman School Board approved a resolution to authorize borrowing $2.3 million for the estimated $8 million dollar building project during Monday night's board meeting. Financial advisor Toby Morris of Dougherty & Company, LLC from Pierre presented a comprehensive borrowing statement calling for the school district to borrow $2.3 million for 20 years, paying a fixed rate of 3.6 percent interest with a five-year call to allow the district to pay it off or pre-pay. Morris said, “We ready to go to market in the next few weeks to present this document to investors.” He went on to explain that by paying a premium up front, the district can lock in the low interest rate and save money over the life of the loan. You can't pay off the loan for five years.... that's the lock out period in exchange for the low interest rate,” said Morris. “That's borrowing pretty cheap.” Superintendent Rob Davis clarified to the board members that the district will use $5.5 million of reserve funds and borrow $2.3 million for the building project. Yearly loan payments will be $165,000 to $170,000. Pick up a copy of the March 13, 2019 issue to read more.
