The Farmers Union will also host a panel featuring South Dakota State Farm Service executive director Paul Shubeck and South Dakota Farmers Union By Daris Howard When we walked into the buffet restaurant, the first thing that caught Jason’s eye was the chocolate fountain. It had three huge tiers with gallons of chocolate flowing over them. “That’s just about the most amazing thing ever!” he said. This buffet lunch was the last part of our scouting high adventure. As we had planned the week, the boys made one request that was out of the norm from other high adventures I had been on. They had asked to eat out at some restaurants. The boys and leaders had worked hard on fundraising, putting flags at every home in our community on all of the main holidays. People who could afford to donate had been generous. So, amidst all of the boating, fishing, and camping, we ate at a Mongolian grill, a restaurant famous for its big pancakes, and ended the week at the all-you-can-eat buffet. While I was paying for our entrance into the buffet, Jason was busy checking out the chocolate fountain. By the time I joined everyone at our table, he had a plate full of chocolate covered marshmallows and strawberries. He set it in front of me. “What’s this?” I asked. “I did these for you,” he replied. “Why didn’t you do them for yourself?” “You know my parents don’t want me to eat sugar,” he said. It was true that he avoided sugar, except for chocolate milk. Even so, he still had more energy than any boy I knew. I wondered what he would be like if he did eat sugar. “They do look good,” I said. “But I better eat other food first, or my blood sugar will spike.” I got a plate of salad and some roast and potatoes. When I finished that, I ate the chocolate-covered marshmallows and strawberries. I went back for shrimp and chicken and returned to find another plate of chocolate-covered strawberries. I didn’t even have to ask who had done it. “Jason, what’s this?” I asked. “It’s so much fun dipping them in the chocolate; I made you some more.” I looked at my plate of food and the chocolate-covered strawberries, and I considered that I would need a bloat needle if I ate all of it. “No more,” I said. “I might be able to eat these, but don’t you dare make me any more chocolate covered anything.” I ate my shrimp and chicken and slowly made my way through chocolate covered strawberries. I had just finished the last one when Jason came back with an ice-cream cone with ice-cream about a foot high. He was carefully balancing it to keep it from falling. He held it out to me. “What’s this?” I asked. “We’re having a contest to see who can make the highest cone. So far, I’m winning.” I took it, but said, “No more, Jason. I mean it. I’m going to be sick now.” I hate to see food go to waste, so I slowly ate it. I had just reached the bottom and knew I couldn’t even look at another food item when I saw Jason filling another ice cream cone. I went over to him. additional work to be re-certified. “Who’s that for?” I asked. However, with the new certifications comes new mar“You,” he replied. “Someone beat my record, so I keting opportunities. have to go higher.” GOED is partnering with ISG, an architectural firm “I am not eating it!” I said. “You make it; you eat it!” that recently expanded its operations to downtown Sioux “But I don’t eat sugar,” he replied.

"This is really unlike anything we have ever done And when we headed home, I realized I had made a big mistake telling him to eat the ice cream. We had to ride home before," Stern added. "It is going to be exciting to see the potential of our state's certified sites blasted out and with him, and his energy turned nuclear. By the time we got home, I was not only sick, I was going crazy. It’s no wonder his marketed in a whole new way." parents didn’t want him eating sugar.

Five Sites Re-Certified Under South Dakota Certified Ready Sites Program PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Governor’s Office of Economic Development (GOED) announced today that five communities in South Dakota have re-certified their development sites under the South Dakota Certified Ready Program. The communities include: Aberdeen, Arlington, Colman, Madison and North Sioux City. "One of the best ways to get your community on a business's short list is to have a site that is ready for development," said GOED Commissioner Scott Stern. "The Certified Ready program assures companies that they are receiving the most accurate, detailed information about the site including availability, utilities, access and environmental concerns." In 2016, the CRS program added additional requirements—soil borings and an archaeological assessment— to the certification requirements. As a result, several sites that were formerly certified needed to undergo Bridge Improvement Grant Recipients Announced PIERRE, S.D. – The South Dakota Transportation Commission awarded 35 Preliminary Engineering Bridge Improvement Grants (BIG) totaling approximately $1.345 million at their meeting today in Pierre.
