Senior Cedar Jandreau (left) hugs her Head Basketball Coach Brittany Reuman after giving Reuman a star quilt. Jandreau presented the quilt to Reuman after her last home basketball game.
"My family and I decided to give it to Coach Reuman because the star quilt in my Native American culture is an honor to be received," Jandreau stated, "I felt like Brittany should have been honored because she was not only a great basketball coach but a great mentor to myself and the team."
The star quilt was originally from Cedar Jandreau’s uncle Boyd, and then Cedar presented it to her Head Basketball coach Brittany Reuman.

As always, the Presho Blarney Commission is diligently preparing for the fast-approaching Irish holiday and celebration, to be held Saturday March 21st in South Dakota’s own Irish capital of Presho.
What started out as a crazed Irishman’s dream has become a huge conglomeration of all things Irish.
As the Good Saint Patrick chased the snakes out of the land of Eire, his Legacy lives on even now. Billions across God’s green earth will be inspired by the Legend of the Good Saint, and gather for his feast day.
Saturday, March 21st, we join in with the billions to commemorate the life of the Good Saint Patrick with traditional Irish music, food, drinking, dancing and merrymaking.
We celebrate by hosting a Grand Parade for the 33rd time at 2:00 pm along with a Shamrock Shuffle at noon and a dance at Hutch’s in the evening.

The city of Presho will hold a city election Tuesday, April 14th to elect a mayor and one council member from WARD III.
Current mayor Mike Sprenger and Allen Heiman have both filed nominating petitions for the office of Mayor, which is a 2-year term.
In Ward III current councilman Cody Volmer did not file but two new comers Lance Mortenson and Teresa Hanson have both filed for the one 2-year term up for election.
In Ward I only the current officer holders Bill Lengkeek and Roy England filed petitions and in Ward II only Tony Urban filed a petition for one of the 2-year terms up for election. Current councilman Barrott Lillebo did not file. The council will have to appoint someone to fill the vacancy in Ward II until the next election in 2016.
Three candidates have filed for two positions up for election on the Kennebec town board which will require Kennebec to hold a city election on April 14th also.
Michelle Langenbau, Kristen Thomas and Rod Bowar are running for the two vacancies on the Kennebec Town Board. Reliance will not have a city election as Brandon Bacon was the only person to file for the one seat on the town board up for election this spring.
