A change in the rental fee agreement with Swenson Brothers Marina for American Creek Marina was approved following a lengthily discussion at Monday night’s city commission meeting. The discussion regarded the base rental fee of $5,000 and whether or not additional gross receipts fee should be waived entirely for 2015 and 2016.

“Isn’t she beautiful,” uttered a woman to the small child wrapped around her hip. The child smiled and pointed to a sparkling blue diamond as the woman walked around the sculpture, taking it in from all angles. They were just two people among a sizeable crowd that gathered for the Dignity Sculpture Dedication on Saturday, September 17. “She’s just incredible.” Although her travel was slow and steady down SD Highway 44 at approximately 30 miles per hour, “Dignity” is now officially resting in her forever home: a scenic bluff in Chamberlain, S.D., with the beautiful Missouri River behind her at the rest area between I-90 exits 263 and 265.
