Ft. Pierre to Deadwood Wagon Trail update

Lonis Wendt of the Verendrye Museum in Ft. Pierre reported that after only 30 days of being open at the end of 2007, 160 of the 300 spots have been filled for the planned Ft. Pierre to Deadwood wagon train. He stated that not enough have been filled by South Dakotans.

The train will leave Ft. Pierre on Wednesday, July 30th, and will pull into Deadwood on Friday, August 15th. Each registered participant will receive a certificate that they have ridden on the train. They will also receive a numbered button, which they can loan to someone else as a temporary substitute on the trail ride.


Philip High School one-act play a real farce

“I am not a klepto!” ... Businesswoman Loni Nelson makes undercover cop John Hanes and patrol woman Shelby Bergeson run for cover even though Nelson is handcuffed to a park bench. Three loonies have escaped from the mental ward and they could be anyone, even the police or the paramedic or the male model or ....

The Philip High School one-act play "Loonies and Snatchers" will be performed for the Philip-area community on Sunday, January 13th, at 3:00 p.m. in the Fine Arts Building.

The farce begins with an undercover policeman posing as an old woman in order to catch a purse snatcher. He quickly nabs, not one, but two, suspects and handcuffs them to a park bench. Adding to the situation, three patients have escaped from the mental ward of the local hospital. Then the impersonated old lady disobeys orders and arrives at her favorite park bench to read.
