Strategic plan outlines next five years of growth for Haakon County Public Library

As the Haakon County Public Library Board of Directors works on a new library facility, they have created a five-year plan that outlines operations and growth areas.

The strategic plan states that the library’s mission is to expand educational opportunities for the adults and children of the community. This would be done by enriching their lives through full access to information, entertainment, service and lifelong learning.

The board has eight main goals they want to accomplish within the next five years.

Deep Creek School to close

by Del Bartels

The closure of a rural school and sorting out insurance discrepencies were the main topics at the Haakon School District 27-1 board meeting on Monday, November 14.

The Deep Creek School will be closed after this school year. Student numbers will diminish through one family going to Pierre and one student who will attend the Philip school. The closure does carry the condition that the school could reopen if enough student-aged children reenter the area.

The financial reports through October were approved except for two items.

Philip Scotties hold own against state’s top Class 9B football team


The excitement was high and audience attendance even higher. The last person leaving Philip was reminded to shut off the lights, as the spectators followed their Scotties to the DakotaDome.

The Scotties earned the right to play the top-ranked and undefeated Hanson Beavers (11-0) for the Class 9A championship on Friday, November 11, in Vermillion.

It was the Scotties’ first game in the DakotaDome and their first chance to play for a state title.
