Harney name still up in air

The campaign to change the name of Harney Peak continues, this time with the decision to come from the U.S. Board on Geographic Names (BGN).

The next meeting of the BGN is Thursday, Sept. 10, at which time a discussion of the Harney Peak issue may be held. 

According to Jennifer Runyon, a research staff member with BGN, a public presentation may be made during the meeting, but the board will not vote on the proposal.

CSD still ‘home’ for many graduates

Ask any student in the Custer School District (CHS) about their school and they’re more than likely to tell you it’s good. Ask an alumnus and they may tell you all the fun they had. But to the alumni who come back to teach in the school, they’ll all tell you the same: “Once a Wildcat, always a Wildcat,” which translates to “my school is pretty awesome.”

Eleven graduates of CHS make up part of the teaching staff in the Custer School District (CSD). In addition to teachers, the district is made up of alumni in other roles, such as paraprofessionals, custodial staff, secretaries, coaches, school board members and even an administrator.

Golfers have strong start to season

The Custer High School boys golf team got its 2015 season underway with a flurry of activity, playing in three tournaments last week from Sturgis to Hot Springs.

Last Thursday the team was in Rapid City at Meadowbrook Golf Course, where it finished in eighth place with a team score of 361. Pierre won the event at 314, followed by Aberdeen Central at 325 and Rapid City Stevens at 335.

Cole Conard was the team’s top finisher, with a score of 83 at the 18-hole event. That score placed him just outside of the top 10.

Dance off

There was nothing short of excitement during the Monday, July 27, YMCA Kids’ Camp afternoon. After seven weeks of preparation, six boys and four girls filled the two rows of chairs in the upstairs of the Custer Elementary School gym, where they prepared to compete in their first ballroom dance competition.

“It was fun working on the dances. This was the best opportunity to learn how to do this,” said Drew Lehman, one of the competitors. “It was hard at the beginning, but the more we learned, the easier it got.”

Trump taps into nation’s anger

No one took him seriously when billionaire New York real estate tycoon Donald Trump entered the Republican presidential primary race earlier this year. For one thing, Trump kept everyone guessing for months if he would really toss his hat into the ring this time around. He has hinted at running for the nation's highest office before, but had never gone through with it.

Now as Trump attracts record crowds, the naysayers say he will never last through another long 14 months of rigorous campaigning. The flamboyant Trump seems to be basking in all the attention of the media and his growing band of followers. Last Friday at an outdoor football stadium in Mobile, Ala., he drew a crowd of 30,000 and was introduced to the cheering masses as the song "Sweet Home Alabama" played loudly. It kind of reminded you of the inspiring "Rocky" theme music in that movie series.
