8 Broadcaster Press February 13, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com State Historical Society Makes More Issues Of Historic Newspapers Available Online PIERRE, S.D. – New newspaper titles have been added to the growing online database of historical United States newspapers, according to the South Dakota State Historical Society. New titles recently added include the Sully County Watchman out of Clifton, 1883-1894; the State-Line Herald from North Lemmon in Adams County, N.D., 1908-1912; and the Lemmon Herald from Lemmon, S.D., 1912-1917. The State-Line Herald moved across the border to Lemmon in 1910. Additional issues of the Deutscher (DOYTcher) Herold of Sioux Falls are now available as well. In 2016 the State Historical Society-State Archives received a two-year $240,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to digitize historical newspapers. The project is part of Chronicling America, a Library of Congress initiative to develop an online database of select historical newspapers from around the United States. As part of the grant the State Historical Society-Archives will digitize approximately 100 rolls of microfilmed newspapers pre-dating 1922 to be included in this collection. This is the second grant the State Archives has received to participate in this project. “These titles join others that are already available on the Chronicling America website,” said state archivist Chelle Somsen. “We now have 32 titles online.” To view these newspapers, visit the Chronicling America Website: http://chroniclingamerica. loc.gov/newspapers/?state=South+Dakotaðni city=&language. For more information, contact the State Historical Society-Archives at 605-773-3804 or visit www.history.sd.gov/archives. State Archives hours are 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. CST Monday-Friday and the first Saturday of most months. Auctions Land & Property • Antiques • Consignments • Farm • Auto & more...

Landowners can receive free corn or sorghum seed to plant each spring, plus a payment to help offset planting costs. The program took a step forward in 2015, offering landowners a third seed option, called the brood mix. The brood mix is an annual mixture of cover crop species (i.e. canola, flax, millet, radish, sunflower), designed to flower from spring through fall and produce seed for wildlife to forage on during winter. By flowering, the brood mix provides pollinator habitat that traditional corn and sorghum food plots lack. Pollinating insects (i.e. bees and butterflies) thrive in areas with flowering plants. Insects comprise nearly 100% of a pheasant chick’s diet, therefore making habitats with high insect numbers for pheasant chicks to forage a key component of pheasant production. Landowners enrolled in the program still retain and may regulate all hunting access privileges; however they cannot charge anyone a fee in exchange for hunting access. For more information and to find a habitat advisor in your area, visit http://habitat.sd.gov/ or contact a GFP biologist at 605.353.7145. Seed is typically distributed in May, so it is important that interested landowners get signed up as soon as possible. Secretary Of State Sees 13 Percent Increase In Business Filings PIERRE, S.D. – With the release of the fourth quarter business and economic data analysis report, Secretary of State Shantel Krebs announced that South Dakota ended the fourth quarter of 2017 with new business filings reaching the highest number since 2013. The increase in entity filings were specifically domestic (in state) limited liability companies (LLCs). The Secretary of State’s office perceives the 13.3 percent increase in 2017 was due to the new online business filing system the office implemented at the end of the 2016 calendar year. “My goal when I took over this office in 2015 was to make it operate at the speed of business, not at the speed of government,” stated Secretary Krebs. “We moved from paper filings that were over six weeks behind when I took office to an online service for today’s fast-paced business world where you can form a business within 15 minutes and have your certificate in hand.” Of the LLCs that formed in calendar year 2017, 81 percent formed online utilizing the new system implemented by Secretary Krebs. The Secretary of State’s business division expects that number to continue to increase in the coming months. About the Northern State University Quarterly Report: The South Dakota Secretary of State’s office partners with the Northern State University School of Business to compile a quarterly business and economic report for the state of South Dakota analyzing employment trends, business filings and income statistics.
