A court has ordered a new trial for former police chief Ken Huber.  He was convicted of killing his wife at their home in Highmore in October 2007.

There was a bit more discussion on the newly renamed Iowa casino and resort in our morning meeting.


 Wednesday, we learned the South Dakota gubernatorial candidates’ views on the casino.  While Democrat Scott Heidepriem laid out plans to keep money in South Dakota, Republican Dennis Daugaard says it’s still unclear whether the new casino will harm South Dakota’s economy.

In a release, Kehl Management said over $7.5 million worth of contracts will go to Sioux Falls and South Dakota and the casino resort will employ about 700 people.

So what are your thoughts on the casino?  How do you feel it will impact the region?
