Last spring, they released their follow up album, “Port Saint Joe” which has climbed to a number two status on the country charts, and they have no intention of stopping any time soon. The duo has claimed the Country Music Association Vocal Duo of the Year Award the last three years in a row, in addition to the Academy of Country Music Vocal Duo of the Year Award, and several Grammy nominations. “Having won Vocal Duo of the Year, Brothers Osborne completes this year’s strong trio of grandstand musical headliners,” said Peggy Besch, SD State Fairgrounds manager. “Their style of music pairs well with the fair!

Kristi Noem Hometowns are the heartbeat of South Dakota. I’m proud to be from a rural hometown. It’s where I learned the values of hard work and self-reliance, where Bryon and I chose to raise our kids, where we started an insurance business and hunting lodge, and where my family has farmed and ranched for a century. But many small towns like ours are struggling today. In South Dakota, according to our most recent statistics, we have 15,363 job openings and 13,500 people actively looking for work. Unfortunately, what we have is a skills gap – those unemployed workers don’t have the skills necessarily to fill the open jobs. I strongly believe that the best way to prepare our young people for their careers is through work experience. Over the coming year, I’m asking school leaders to work with me to dramatically increase work experience in our high schools. We need more CTE and skills training in high school. We need more apprenticeship programs. And we need more opportunities for young people to get out of the classroom and experience a real job. I would like our high schools to join together each year to hold a “Week of Work.” This will be a special week when every high school student will get out of the classroom to experience a day on the job. I hope this can lead to schools coordinating more internships and experiencebased classes. Another state-imposed barrier to workforce can be professional licensure. I am directing the Department of Labor and NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING FOR VACATION OF A PORTION OF 465 AVENUE LYING BETWEEN 314TH STREET AND 316TH STREET, CLAY COUNTY, SOUTH DAKOTA NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT a joint meeting of the Fairview Township, Prairie Center Township, and Vermillion Township, on the 19th day of February 2019, at the hour of 7:00 p.m., in the Vermillion Chamber of Commerce 1st floor boardroom located at 2 East Main Street, will meet to consider the request to vacate the highway contained in Clay County and described as: 0.70 miles of the section line highway known as 465 Avenue starting at 0.85 miles north of 316th Street. This section line highway is bordered by: The West line of Section 5, Township 92 North, Range 51 in Fairview Township; the East line of Section 6, Township 92 North, Range 51 in Vermillion Township; the West line of Section 32, Township 93 North, Range 51 in Prairie Center Township; and the East line of Section 31, Township 93 North, Range 51 in Prairie Center Township, all West of the 5th. P.M., Clay County, South Dakota. Regulation, over the next year, to work with our professional organizations and licensure boards to conduct a full review of licensing requirements. We need to consider the elimination of unnecessary licenses, opportunities to streamline the licensure process, and options to fasttrack licenses for apprentices, in-state graduates, veterans, and military personnel and their families. We can’t let unneeded red tape get in the way of growth. Furthermore, I want to break down barriers to help fill workforce shortages. In our smaller communities and more rural areas, affordable housing creates difficulties for employers. Earlier this year, I announced a pilot project by the South Dakota Housing Development Authority to help fix this problem. We will be building new modular multi-housing units, called DakotaPlex, at the state prison facility in Springfield. It will be similar to the Governor’s Houses, but built as duplex, triplex, or quadriplex units. South Dakota communities of less than 5,000 people will be eligible to purchase these units and offer them for rent at affordable levels. I’m confident this new project will help our smaller communities expand housing options for workers. I believe the most sustainable way to strengthen rural communities is to expand economic opportunity, and that can only come from a healthy workforce. I am fully committed to revitalizing South Dakota’s rural culture so small-town schools and businesses can thrive for generations to come. RAISE YOUR Expectations NOTICE IS FURTHER GIVEN THAT any person, or their representative, may appear and be heard at said scheduled public hearing that is interested in the approval or rejection of such petition to vacate.
