Actor visits Custer

For many, picking up hitchhikers in this day and age is considered the easiest way to be attacked, robbed, killed or even a combination of the above. But when actor Shia LaBeouf asks his Twitter followers to take him anywhere, suddenly fans from across the country are keeping their eyes open on the side of the road. 

LaBeouf’s newest collaboration project, titled #TAKEMEANYWHERE, brought him to Custer Tuesday, June 14, for a night’s stay before departing for his next location. The project, part of an ongoing collaboration with artists Nastja Säde Rönkkö and Luke Turner, took the trio across the U.S. with the help of LaBeouf’s Twitter account.

County ‘sign man’ hangs it up

It’s a safe bet there are few, if any, people who know the county road system better than Darcy Smith. That’s because Smith, who at 67 retired from the county highway department after 33 years of service Monday, is responsible for placing every road or 911 sign in Custer County.

That’s not hyperbole. If your Custer County road has a speed limit sign or a windy road sign or your Custer County home has a 911 address sign, it was installed by Smith, the county’s “sign man.”

Smith was hired full-time to the Custer County Highway Department April 20, 1983 by Leo “Pat”â��Mohler, but worked for the department even before that, first as a high school student and then in the summers of 1981 and 1982 as part-time help.

Immigration insanity has got to end now

We don’t go along with those who are calling Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump a bigot and a racist, among other things, because he wants to temporarily suspend refugees coming into this country from mostly Muslim countries. After the killing of 49 people and wounding of 53 others at an Orlando nightclub last week by an avowed follower of ISIS, it is time we get a grip on this entire refugee immigration mess.

The U.S.-born shooter in this case appeared to be self-radicalized, but also had made two recent trips to Saudi Arabia. He was not a recent refugee, but he was a Muslim, apparently following the teachings in the Koran. Most people would say he was a radical Muslim, but actually he was merely following the teachings in the Koran. He was a Muslim carrying out the dictates of Muhammad.
