Some comments made on a social network website have led to an investigation in De Smet. KELOLAND News has confirmed officials took an 18-year-old student out of school and into custody yesterday because of some threatening comments made on Facebook.
KELOLAND’s Shawn Neisteadt is in the community gathering details. Watch Midday in KELOLAND for a live report on what he’s found out and then join us at Five and Six o’clock for in-depth reports on the case.
The Governor’s budget address sparked a lot of discussion in the KELOLAND Newsroom this morning as I’m sure it’s doing across the state. Over the next week Governor Dennis Daugaard is taking his budget proposal across the state to nine communities. He started in Aberdeen this morning and our Erich Schaffhauser was there as people asked some strong questions of the governor. Erich will show you what people had to say, later today.

What does your sidewalk look like today? Well, the City of Sioux Falls is cracking down on homeowners who aren’t taking care of the ice and snow.
- It began Monday with Don Jorgensen’s story showing a man in a wheelchair dodging traffic on Minnesota Avenue because he couldn’t get around on the sidewalk.
- On Tuesday, Mayor Mike Huether reacted to the story and told city officails they needed to get a better handle on the city’s share of the problem.
- On Wednesday we found plows out working to clear them and the city alerted homeowners once again to do their part and that if they don’t, they’ll be charged if the City has to do it for them. Hailey Higgins will show you what officials are finding as they follow up on complaints.
