It’s back to school for area students and it’s back to work for me on a busy Monday.  Today, we’re covering that early start of school and giving a reminder on traffic in school zones. We’re also checking out a program that was meant to ease the transition for students heading to middle school.  We’ll show you how it worked.

Sturgis is officially over, but some vendors are sticking around trying to get rid of merchandise.  Look for some big discounts if you’re in the area.

We’re talking to people on Sioux Falls’ east side about a proposed plan to allow hunters to help thin the deer population with a bow and arrow.  How do you feel about allowing hunting within city limits?

This morning, crews are working to fix a water main break near 66th Street and Sundowner Avenue.  Also, the heat from yesterday caused parts of 12th Street to buckle, so crews are also busy there.  And an outage this morning has Xcel Energy working to restore power to people in and around downtown Sioux Falls and determine a cause.

We’ll have updates on these stories today on KELOLAND News.

In addition, we’re nearing the start of school and Project SOS (Supply Our Students) needs help.  They’re short about 700 backpacks so we’ll talk with them about the need and how you can help.

We’re at the Rally today, talking with Sturgis police about how they fight crime during Bike Week.

And with more rain in the forecast, we’re bracing for more of what we faced last week with the sewer issues.  Mayor Mike Huether is asking that people conserve water ahead of the storm, but to also be prepared for restrictions if the need arises.

It’s back to work after a short weekend, but one thing’s for sure: there isn’t a shortage of news to cover.

Last night’s storm did quite a bit of damage in the Yankton area.  We had reports of campers overturned, trees uprooted, and minor injuries.

We’re in the courtroom today where Benjamin Carter faces murder, robbery and arson charges in connection with the death of Joseph Cynkar.  Payton Strum will be in court Tuesday.

It’s the official start of Sturgis and we’ll show you the transformation at the campgrounds in the area.

A local woman will appear as a contestant on the next season of Survivor.  We’ll introduce you to her tonight on KELOLAND News.
