She w/gravy, Brussel Sprouts, Peaches was a music teacher in a local school district, and she was having a Christmas program in an attempt to earn money for her financially strapped program. She hoped to purchase instruments for children to play who could not otherwise afford to be in band. She called and asked if I would be Santa. I agreed, and my wife found a Santa suit in the want ads. I was soon outfitted for the part, but my temperament was questionable. The day came, and I ho-hoed my way into the gymnasium. I was soon surrounded by children from babies set on my lap, to middle-aged women plopping on my lap and saying, “Selfie!” as they snapped a picture.

For the first time, I found myself without words. Finally, I said, “You know, your fathers may not be around this Christmas, but others, even some you may not know, love you.” They sat on my lap, and I talked to them for quite a while, even telling them a story or two. When they left, they seemed happier, and their mothers thanked me. But I didn’t feel it needed to end there. I motioned my daughter over and pointed out the two families as they headed out the door.

Clark Street • Vermillion, SD A Record Of Accomplishment: Chairing The Senate Commerce Committee By Sen. John Thune It’s been a humbling and highly rewarding experience to have spent the last four years leading the Senate Committee on Commerce, Science, and Transportation. While I truly wish I could continue doing so, next year I’ll be serving as the chief vote counter in the Senate and taking on additional responsibilities, which means I’ll have to turn the Commerce Committee gavel over to the next chairman. I won’t be going far, though. I’ll still serve on the committee, and with my new role, I’ll be in a prime position to continue advocating for our goals and building on what we’ve already achieved. The Commerce Committee is unique for a lot of reasons, not the least of which is the broad jurisdiction it has over agencies in the federal government and issues that affect Americans’ day-to-day lives. The committee covers planes, trains, and automobiles – essentially every mode of transportation in the United States. It has jurisdiction over technology, the internet, mobile broadband, the space program, the U.S. Coast Guard, and oceans. Those topics just scratch the surface, which is why I’ve always found the Commerce Committee so interesting and relevant. Every single day I’ve served as chairman, I’ve tried to approach the job with a core mission of creating a forward-looking agenda. I wanted to pursue policies that helped prepare our economy and workers for the jobs and opportunities of the future. I wanted to use my position on the committee to serve South Dakotans and the rest of the American people to the best of my ability and in the most effective way I possibly could. After four years, we have a strong record of accomplishment, and I’m comfortably passing the torch knowing we left it all on the field. Over the years, the committee has taken several meaningful steps to help protect travelers and consumers by doing common-sense things like reauthorizing and modernizing nearly every transportation program in the country. As a result, these efforts will make our highways safer, our railroads more efficient, and our airways more Irene-Wakonda Elementary School Lunch Wednesday – No School Thursday – A.
