The first time I dropped my child off at day care, someone told me, it may not get easier leaving them in someone else’s care, but you’ll become more comfortable doing it. I did also find comfort in knowing I did the appropriate research and took the time to get to know my provider before deciding who to trust with my children. But even officials will tell you, you should also trust your gut when you feel something isn’t right. Have you ever had that happen?
Well, it makes me wonder why the City of Aberdeen is considering whether to revoke Michelle Knebel’s (AKA Michelle Becker) home day care license. Erich Schaffhauser is looking into that today and we’ll post information on KELOLAND.com on what he finds. Then he’ll be at the Aberdeen City Council meeting tonight as they discuss the issue.
Governor Dennis Daugaard and school administrators have been going back and forth on the Governor’s proposed budget cuts. Last month, Daugaard spoke at the Sioux Falls Downtown Rotary Club, where he’s been a member for more than 17 years. And now today, Sioux Falls Superintendent Pam Homan is addressing the group of business people. David Brown is going to be back at today’s meeting to bring you more from her perspective.
I was surprised to see the Brandon Valley School District called off school today, apparently for some roads that drifted over. We’ll have more on what happened there.
And out west, the Northern Black Hills got 30 inches of snow since Friday! That’s good news for winter tourism businesses. Austin Hoffman’s going to show you how it’s helping the economy out there.
In the newsroom, we’ve decided we can make it through this latest cold snap if our Meteorologists keep promising the warm up this weekend. Are you making any special plans yet? Hopefully the weather will deliver something perfect to get people out of this long winter “funk”.
