Philip's Mariah Evans toes the free throw line with only 10 seconds remaining in overtime play. The 2007 Girls Basketball District 13B Championship is on the line.

The crowd in the Murdo gymnasium is cheering and screaming almost hysterically, but a hush settles as Evans aims and releases the ball. It arcs upward, then downward toward the basket. The shot misses.

White River calls a time out.

One hundred

Towns and businesses across the midwest are celebrating their 100 year mark. Back in the early 1900s, the desolate region known as the Dakota Territory actually saw people who wanted to stay and call the area home. Many people on the coasts thought the settlers were fools.

Horses pulling a loaded wagon can comfortably go just so far per day. Small gatherings of people which became towns popped up about every ten miles apart. That distance jumped to about 20 miles apart when trails became the precursors of roads and when the railroads came through.

New large print collection

Rotating collection ... Haakon County Public Librarian Alison Kattlemann has found shelf space for the 150 large print books made available by the State Library transition.

The South Dakota State Library is transitioning from a public library to a "library for libraries". It is reducing its collection by 80 percent and giving the books to libraries throughout South Dakota.

This change at the State Library has positively impacted the Haakon County Public Library when it comes to large print books. The local library is in a circuit with six other libraries. Each library in the circuit has received 150 such books, and will rotate them between the other libraries in the circuit.

There are 10 circuits across the state.

The fair was open to students from Philip, Wall and Kadoka. Students could opt to attend any or all seven sessions, depending on the specific fields in which they were interested.

The sessions began at 9:00 a.m. with a mock emergency. Staff from several departments simulated a crisis situation (a heart attack) and then debriefed students in the conference room. The staff explained their unique role during the emergency.

Physician's Assistant Terry Henrie hosted the second session.

Along with cookies and coffee offered from 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m., a free beef lunch will be held at noon and door prizes will be awarded. The old bottle of inexpensive wine time-capsuled in the walls of the old location will even be opened for some brave employees to sample.

There will be specials on parts and on tractors. A wide variety of machinery will be on display.

The move during March and April 2006 went well.
