C&B Operations, LLC Incorporates Noteboom Implement, LLC Locations
 
   Gettysburg, SD— C & B Operations, LLC, a John Deere dealership headquartered out of Gettysburg, SD is expanding its business base by combining with eight John Deere stores serving southern South Dakota and northern Iowa from Noteboom Implement, LLC. The change is effective immediately.  
   The company will do business as C & B Operations, LLC in the three store locations in South Dakota (Corsica, Chamberlain and Parkston) and five store locations in Iowa (Sibley, Lake Park, Spencer, Storm Lake, and Ida Grove). C & B plans to retain the current Noteboom employees as part of the merge.  
   With the expanding footprint, C & B is able to bring even more value to each of its customers. “This decision brings two reputable companies with strong family values together to better serve our customers across the six states we operate in.” said Matt Cronin, CEO, C & B . “The Noteboom Implement group is a great fit with us. Both companies are made up of experienced and knowledgeable teams focused on supporting our customers in improving agriculture production. We are thrilled to have the Noteboom Implement organization joining our team.” 
   Earlier this year, C & B finalized the acquisition of four NE Montana dealership stores from Farm Equipment Sales in Circle, Culbertson, Plentywood and Glasgow. With the addition of the eight Noteboom Implement stores, C & B will now own 37 stores across six states.  
   C & B Operations, LLC is owned by the Cronin and Burwell families and now operates in Iowa, South Dakota, Minnesota, Montana, Wyoming, and Idaho. C & B began 30 years ago in 1988, when Dan Cronin and Rod Burwell purchased the John Deere dealership in Gettysburg, South Dakota and has grown to be one of the premier John Deere dealers in the country.

Motorists urged to pay extra attention as schools open across the state

Motorists urged to pay extra attention as schools open across the state
One-Third of Child Pedestrian Fatalities Occur During After-School Hours
 
   As summer draws to a close, this is the week most South Dakota students return back to schools across the state. AAA warns drivers to be especially vigilant for pedestrians during before-and after-school hours. Typically in the U.S., nearly one-third of all child pedestrian fatalities occur between 3 p.m. and 7 p.m.  
  While supplies last, AAA retail stores have 2018 School’s Open, Drive Carefully yards signs available for the public to pick up and display in neighborhoods and around schools to remind drivers of the need to be mindful of traffic transitions.  
  Keep kids safer with AAA’s seven life-saving tips for motorists: 
  1.  Slow down.  Speed limits in school zones are reduced for a reason. A pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling at 25 mph is nearly two-thirds less likely to be killed compared to a pedestrian struck by a vehicle traveling just 10 mph faster. 
  2. Eliminate distractions.  Children often cross the road unexpectedly and may emerge suddenly between two parked cars. Research shows that taking your eyes off the road for just two seconds doubles your chances of crashing. Put down the phone. 
  3.  Reverse responsibly. Every vehicle has blind spots. Check for children on the sidewalk, driveway and around your vehicle before slowly backing up. Teach your children to never play in, under or around vehicles—even those that are parked. 
  4. Brake for Buses.  It may be tempting to drive around a stopped school bus, but not only is it dangerous, it’s against the law, no matter which direction you’re approaching the stopped bus from.
  5.   Talk to your teen.  Car crashes are the leading cause of death for teens in the United States, and more than one in four fatal crashes involving teen drivers occur during the after-school hours of 3 to 7 p.m. Get evidence-based guidance and tips at TeenDriving.AAA.com. 
  6.    Come to a complete stop.  Research shows that more than one-third of drivers roll through stop signs in school zones or neighborhoods. Always come to a complete stop, checking carefully for children on sidewalks and in crosswalks before proceeding. 7.   Watch for bicycles.  Children on bikes are often inexperienced, unsteady and unpredictable.   Slow down and allow at least three feet of passing distance between your vehicle and the bicycle.  If your child rides a bicycle to school, require that they wear a properly-fitted bicycle helmet on every ride.
