Boy, am I ticked

First off, my children like school.

My daughter’s teachers do not include any drill sergeants, bored tenured bodies waiting for retirement, or anti-socials who barely put up with kids. My daughter’s classmates have not shown themselves to be bullies, rich snobs, convicts under the age of 18, or drugged-out weirdos. The lunches are fine, the classes are relevant, and the homework is not just busy-work to be thrown away.

Second, I know my neighbors.

I actually know their names and have talked with them.


Dakota Case of Philip to close this fall

After over 16 years as a growing part of Philip, the Dakota Case Company will be closing this fall.

The remaining ten full-time employees have been offered incentives to remain until the existing orders are filled and close-down is completed.

Black Hills Gold Manufacturing businesses have felt a lessening of market demand. These businesses include companies such as Landstroms, Stampers, F.L. Thorpe, Gold Diggers, and Coleman. The market for metal jewelry boxes has also changed. Now the boxes are considered throw-away items after the jewelry is purchased.
