It’s supposed to be the happiest day of your life. But the closure of a bridal shop in KELOLAND is stressing out brides-to-be who don’t know whether they’ll ever see their wedding gown, bridesmaid dresses or the money they put down on them. KELOLAND’s Nicole Winters is looking into what’s behind the closure and what action brides can take, if any.

There’s some debate over the Governor’s proposed 10% cut to education. As Katie Janssen reported last night on KELOLAND News at 5, Governor Daugaard has said since schools receive funding from many other sources, a 10% cut is more like a 5.4% cut. Well, school administrators strongly disagree with that statement. Katie spoke with both sides about why they say the numbers are being twisted and will continue her report later today.

I’ve gotten big into couponing, which makes saving money on the personal level such an accomplishment. So I can only imagine how city leaders feel in Rapid City today. City departments there are coming in under budget, by millions of dollars. Austin Hoffman’s going to find out how the savings will help the town’s finances.

There are now two proposed bills to ban texting while driving in the South Dakota Senate (SB71 & SB115). KELOLAND’s Peggy Moyer is looking into how such a ban would be enforced.

Have a great Tuesday and join us later for the news.

    Please get the details up as soon as you get them – my daughter’s wedding dress and 7 bridesmaid dresses are all ordered from that store!! Thank You!

    A couple months ago I ordered bridesmaid dress at Interlude. I stopped last Saturday because their was a problem with my order and they told me they are closing the store for good that day and moving to another location but wouldn’t tell me any details. Couldn’t really trust it. They charged all my bridesmaid half price for their dresses. So I got reciepts for refund and now I’m starting all over. The prior 2 weeks I kept calling and leaving messages but no answer. They told me they shut off their phones. If I wouldn’t have stopped last Saturday I don’t think I would have got a refund. This whole deal seems a little fishy to me.
