Disclaimer: I am an SDSU alumnus.
Disclaimer #2: I don’t follow basketball (as much as baseball, anyway).
However, with those two points aside, I really wish I could be at today’s women’s basketball Summit League Championship game as the #3 SDSU women take on #4 Oakland. But it’s going to be a rush helping bring you coverage of the post game later today on KELOLAND News.
We’re coordinating crews to bring you live coverage from the Sioux Falls Arena tonight on KELOLAND News at 5 and 6, with Sports Director Matt Holsen. Since the game is being broadcast elsewhere, Jim Madalinsky will live blog from the arena on our Sports Page on KELOLAND.com. Tipoff is scheduled for 3 p.m. so, if you can’t make it to the game either, you can get the play-by-play from Jim.
A possible reduction in education cuts is offering some good news for South Dakota schools. Ben Dunsmoor had the details of how that may be possible last night on KELOLAND News at Six. Tonight, education reporter Katie Janssen is following up with some school districts to get reaction on what that might help save.
Disclaimer #3: I am on the Sioux Falls Area Humane Society Board of Directors. It’s helped me stay connected with the pet population’s needs while helping an important organization in the community. I talked with it’s executive director, Kori Baade, yesterday who says the shelter is full, full, full and they need dog and cat food donations. Its website says they’ve taken in 74 pets in four days. Not only are people surrendering their pet, which can be very difficult to do, they’re bringing in three or four at a time. Jon Wilson is talking more with her today about what’s behind the population increase.
