8 Broadcaster Press June 5, 2018 www.broadcasteronline.com Some Environmental Markers By Gov. Dennis Daugaard Growing up on a farm, my sisters and I were raised to leave things better than we found them. This meant taking care of the land, planting trees, maintaining our barn and treating the animals well. We learned in order to enjoy something tomorrow we have to take care of it today. Judging by the state of our environment, I’d bet a lot of South Dakotans were raised the same way. We’re fortunate to live in a place where we enjoy clean air and safe drinking water, and where we’re able to take advantage of renewables. If you’ve ever visited other countries or large metro areas in the U.S., it’s pretty clear that South Dakota’s air is relatively clean. In fact, we have one of the best clean air records in the nation.

Linda and I built our home on the farm where I was raised, and once we’re done serving as governor and first lady, we’ll return there. The farm remains nice to this day, with many trees. I’ve got some deferred maintenance to address, but thanks to many years of good stewardship, it’s a place Linda and I will be able to enjoy well into the future. I’m grateful that 3x1 through the efforts of generations of conscientious South Dakotans, the same can be said of our air and drinking water.
