2 Broadcaster Press August 4, 2015 www.broadcasteronline.com Alicia Hummel Benefit On June 1, 2015 the lives of friends and family of Alicia Hummel (Folkers) was dramatically changed. Alicia left to go fishing and enjoy her first day of vacation. Alicia looked forward to being able to relax and catch some fish as she soaked up the sun at Myron Grove State Park near Meckling, SD. Alicia however, would never return home. She was brutally murdered while at Myron Grove State Park. There has been no one arrested in connection with Alicia’s death and the case remains unsolved at this time. Alicia was a fun-loving, energetic woman who had a zest for life. She loved to fish, dance, and spend time with friends and family. Alicia was looking forward to celebrating her 30th birthday on June 27th and had dreams of returning to school to obtain her Masters of Special Education at USD this fall. Alicia’s death was unexpected and a great loss for all those who loved her. It is the hope of the friends of Alicia to keep her story alive and bring justice to the person/s who took her life too soon. The friends of Alicia Hummel have planned a benefit and silent auction on August 30th from 4:00- 7:00 p.m. at the Abu Bekr Shrine Temple in Sioux City in Alicia’s honor. We are asking any community members and/ or businesses to donate drinks and/or silent auction items for a hot dog feed in Alicia’s honor on August 30th. If you are unable to donate at this time a memorial fund has been set up at Sioux Valley Credit Union in Sioux City under Alicia Folkers Hummel Memorial Fund. With the money raised at the benefit and through her memorial fund, the family will be able to help alleviate the financial costs of Alicia’s premature death as well as continue to seek justice for Alicia. We thank you for your consideration and helping the family and friends continue to keep Alicia’s story alive. If you would like to donate, volunteer, or have any questions please contact justice4alicia@gmail.com.

PUC Lengthens Hearing On TransCanada Permit BY BOB MERCER STATE CAPITOL BUREAU PIERRE – More time will be needed to complete the permit hearing that began this week for the Keystone XL oil pipeline proposed through South Dakota, state Public Utilities Commission chairman Chris Nelson said Thursday. Nelson told the various parties they should expect to work Saturday and could be working Wednesday through Friday of next week if needed. The hearing began Monday, July 27, and was scheduled to conclude Tuesday, Aug. 4. “We’re game to work nights. We’re game to work weekends,” Bill Taylor, a Sioux Falls lawyer representing TransCanada, told Nelson. “My hope is we don’t need those dates,” Nelson said. TransCanada presented its final witness, engineer Meera Kothari, for crossexamination on Thursday afternoon. Four Sioux tribal governments – Yankton, Rosebud, Cheyenne River and Standing Rock – along with 30 individuals and five other organizations intervened in the case. Many are actively participating in the hearing by presenting witnesses, and cross-examining TransCanada witnesses, in a process much like a civil court trial. The hearing is to certify whether TransCanada can meet the 50 conditions set in its original 2010 state permit. The certification process is necessary under state law because construction didn’t start within four years. TransCanada has been waiting for approval from President Barack Obama to pierce the U.S. border. The pipeline would carry oil mined from tar sands in Alberta, Canada, through Montana, South Dakota and Nebraska, where it would connect with the existing distribution system.
