The topic of conversation around Kennebec this week is the upcoming Kennebec Challenge basketball game between the Town & Country Club and the Medicine Creek Riding Club. Team rosters are starting to fill according to T&C Club vice-chairman Trusty Mertens.

Mertens reports Kennebec alumni Dennis Whitney, Sioux Falls, and Ken Tracy, Mitchell have volunteered to return to the Kennebec gym to officiate the hotly contested match up. Both, men are well aware of the intricacies involved to pull off a victory in the Kennebec gym.

Kennebec alumni cheerleaders are dusting off their purple and gold sweaters, rehearsing cheers and stretching muscles that havent been used in years in preparation for the big game.

It has been rumored that a group of out of shape ball handlers from the west are putting together a team in hopes of challenging the winner of the Kennebec Challenge to another match up.

Locals wont want to miss what may well be the most entertaining basketball game played in Lyman County this year. A half and half raffle, a kids hoop shoot, and a 50 and older senior shoot out are planned for half time. Bring the entire family; club volunteers have assured us that plenty of food will be available at the concession stand.

All proceeds go towards the building fund for a new office/concession building at the Kennebec arena. Matching funds are provided by both Thrivent Financial for Lutherans and Modern Woodmen of America.

The city of Presho signed an agreement with the South Dakota Department of Transportation to install streetlights from the intersection of US183 and Hwy 248 west to the intersection of Hwy 248 and the 304th Ave.

The City is responsible for 18% of the cost of the lighting project, which has been estimated at around $126,000. DOT will fund the reminder. The project will be added to the April 22nd bid letting. Work will be completed before fall of 2005.

According to Mayor Carl Brakke the lighting project is a positive move for Presho, "Its a means to promote our town at minimum cost to the city."

The old light poles will be removed from the service road and the new poles placed on the highway through town.

The City expects to pay for the project with monies from the general fund.

Other city projects to be completed this summer include a new picnic shelter at the city park and an underground sprinkler system at the baseball field. Both, these projects have received funding through the Schoenhard Foundation.

City employees Forrest Hupp and John Uthe took down the old shelter. The city is in the process of obtaining estimates for the construction a new roof, which will run the entire the length of the concrete.
