Commissioners pass resolution to begin charging fee for abandoned vehicles

by Hannah Ruhlman/SUN 

People who have their vehicles towed by the City and then leave their vehicles sitting in impound for days, weeks or even months could now see the action begin to add up. Commissioners passed a resolution during their Monday night meeting on June 20 that now enacts a $10-per-day fine after owners leave their cars sitting in impound passed 10 days. If car owners pick up their vehicle before the 10-day mark, they would just pay the regular tow bill.

A Working Life The Finance Officer

by Hannah Ruhlman/SUN 

According to the stereotype, someone who deals with numbers all day might have to be considered a bit of a nerd. That’s not the case for Chamberlain City Finance Officer Nicky Gaulke, who has worked for the City for nearly half her life. She began as the Deputy Finance Officer when she was fresh out of Mitchell Tech at 19-years-old. Two years later she moved into the lead role and has held it the last 15 years.

Local GFP Fisheries catch rare American Eel

by GARY KNECHT/GF&P 

On a recent Smallmouth Bass sampling trip below Gavins Point Dam near Yankton, SD, a Game, Fish, and Parks fisheries crew encountered a unique species that has not been seen locally for several years. This was the first time this crew had captured an American Eel Anguilla rostrata in that location. The American Eel is nocturnal and usually hides under rocks or logs during daylight hours, so catching an American Eel during the day is rare.
