The dreaded drop-off. As parents, we've all experienced it. Whether it's for work, a vacation or a night away, the drop-off is inevitable. Sooner or later, someone else is going to have to watch your child. And while leaving your little loved one can result in a number of outcomes from them, the feeling for Mom and Dad is typically the same. Blue. Somber. Sad. In three-plus years of being a father, I've experienced at least a few of the drop-off debacles that can happen. Drop-off scenario 1: Kicking and/or screaming, squeezing and crying.
MITCHELL, S.D. — Poachers, beware. Hunters trespassing and anglers fishing without a license continue to be the most-issued citations by state conservation officers.

PIERRE, S.D.—A bill has been drafted that seeks compromise between property owners and outdoor enthusiasts who wish to recreate on 28 lakes that have formed mostly in northeast South Dakota over private land because of heavy precipitation over the past many years. The proposed solution for the lakes listed in the bill that currently have restricted access would be that they are open to the public but a new South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks commission process allows landowners to petition to have access restricted.
PIERRE, S.D.— Gov. Dennis Daugaard anticipates a proposal to be offered next session on the public's use of lakes that have developed because of excessive flooding on private property—mostly in northeast South Dakota. Daugaard also hasn't ruled out a special session this year Last month, the state Supreme Court ruling said that the Legislature must determine whether members of the public may enter or use any of the non-meandered water or ice overlying private property for any recreational use, mostly fishing.
