The bull bash will kick off the State Fair on Channel Seeds Preview Day Wednesday, Aug. 29, and the opening day of the fair on Thursday, Aug. 30. “Four-time World Champion bull rider and Pro Rodeo Hall of Famer Tuff Hedeman produces bull riding events that thrill audiences with his two-hour adrenaline rush entertainment style punctuated with the two things he knows fans want to see – great rides and high scores,” said state fair director Peggy Besch. Hedeman announced in March the formation of the Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour, which includes Hedeman's annual tour stops in El Paso, Las Vegas, Bossier City and Fort Worth. "At this point in my life, it's best for my family to be solely responsible for my destiny. My original goals have not changed since 1992. I'm still committed to producing bull riding events that give each bull rider entered the chance to win first and make sure the fans at every event are getting more than expected," said Hedeman. Hedeman made the decision to go out on his own after serving for a combined 23 years as the former head of the two nationally organized professional bull riding organizations (PBR and CBR) since his retirement as a rider from the sport in 1999. “The bull bash is a big part of the State Fair and we’re thrilled to host the Tuff Hedeman Bull Riding Tour to celebrate the grandstand’s 100th year,” said Besch.

Wet And Cool Pattern Fades Into Summer Season BROOKINGS, S.D. - According to April 19, 2018 National Oceanic Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Climate Prediction Center outlooks, the relentless cool and wet climate pattern throughout South Dakota is likely to fade away as summer approaches. "The outlooks show a transition away from cool and wet in the month ahead," said Laura Edwards, SDSU Extension State Climatologist. Based on the models, Edwards said South Dakota is less likely to have cooler than average conditions in May, with the exception of the northwest. Record breaking spring Reflecting on the cooler than average start to the month, Edwards said that some South Dakota locations, like Sioux Falls, broke monthly snowfall records. "The growing season is off to a slow start with cold air and soil temperatures, and not just wet, but snowy conditions. The first half of April has been the coldest start on record across the region," she said. Already this winter and spring, there have been record or near-record snowfall in central and eastern Montana as well. Moving into May, the outlooks show Montana and a portion of northwest South Dakota are likely to continue to be wetter than average.

The Broadcaster has all the deals you need to keep you high and dry! 624-4429 broadcasteronline.com PIERRE, S.D. – Spring ushers in sunshine, longer days and more time spent outdoors. It also marks the beginning of a season of increased excavation activity. Homeowners who are looking to spruce up spaces with digging projects are urged to take an important first step and call before digging. To emphasize the importance of calling before you dig, Gov. Dennis Daugaard has issued a proclamation declaring April as Safe Digging Month in South Dakota. By calling 811 prior to breaking ground on any project, homeowners and excavators can save time and money while remaining safe and connected. Contacting 811 before digging is required by law. This simple phone call can help avoid service interruptions, damages to a utility and the environment, and even personal injury. Projects as simple as putting in a new the Northern Plains region," Edwards said. "Even with cold temperatures, stock ponds are refilling and soil moisture is being slowly replenished." She referenced the U.S. Drought Monitor's maps over recent weeks which shows improvements across the region. The worst drought areas from 2017 are now in D0, Abnormally Dry, or D1, Moderate Drought, severity levels in South Dakota. "This is a two-class improvement from mid-winter," Edwards said. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers have been keeping a close watch on snowpack in Montana as it has melted. They are prepared for the remaining snowmelt runoff and any spring rainfall to be captured in the reservoir system. "The Corps is expecting higher runoff than usual this season. However, reservoir levels are low enough to accommodate the snowmelt runoff and rainfall from the prairies and mountains," Edwards said. Summer 2018: What can we expect? Looking ahead to the early summer season, Edwards said it is predicted that the wet soils will prevent air temperatures from getting very warm in the region. "For the months of May through July, South Dakota has equal chances of warmer, cooler or near mailbox or planting a tree should begin with a call to 811 to have underground utility lines marked. The South Dakota One Call Notification Board is commemorating its 25th year as a state agency. Awareness and use of program has expanded exponentially since 811 was first introduced in South Dakota in 1993. “It’s really remarkable to think about how much the 811 program has grown in 25 years,” said John Ward, Chairman of the South Dakota One Call Board and the Division Manager for Excavating Specialists of Rapid City. “Certainly, more excavation is taking place given the development growth in our state. It’s satisfying to know that 811 provides a needed, useful and used service,” Ward said. In 2017, the South Dakota 811 center fielded nearly 7,000 more locate requests than the previous year, for a total of nearly 155,000 requests received statewide. Those requests resulted in approximately 862,000 dispatches (36,000 more than 2016) being delivered to utility companies, directing them to mark their underground facilities at excavation sites. South Dakota 811 is a free service. Homeowners and excavators must contact the South Dakota 811 center at least 48 hours before digging, excluding weekends and holidays. Contact the South Dakota 811 Center 24 hours a day, seven days a week by calling 811 or submitting an electronic request through the www.SD811.com website. The South Dakota 811 website is a valuable resource with complete information for homeowners, landowners and excavators. Learn more about 811 and safe digging practices at www.
