People in Sioux Falls and Yankton are voting on two school elections. In Sioux Falls, voters get to elect a new member to the school Board. In Yankton, they’re deciding whether to approve an opt out of the state property tax freeze to help with a lack of state education funding. Katie Janssen, David Brown and Jon Wilson have team coverage on the process. Then we’ll bring you the results tonight on KELOLAND News at Ten.

And we understand a couple of South Dakota natives were among those huddled in a walk-in cooler at a convenience store when the tornado hit Joplin, Missouri this weekend. Check out the video on You Tube. You can’t see much but the audio is pretty intense. Peggy Moyer is working on that story today.

There are only two Oprah Winfrey Shows left. One local couple was on the show just a couple years ago and received money to help with their cause to help the homeless. Don Jorgensen will have an update on their mission. Plus, a Sioux Falls woman was at Oprah’s massive celebrity celebration which continues today on KELO-TV at 4:00 p.m. We’ll talk with her about what it was like to be at the event and see all the stars who came out to honor Oprah.
