SHMAAF brings musical stars to Custer

It’s not everyday you have the chance to nab “Two Tickets to Paradise.” And with the variety of musical acts and events lined up for this weekend’s Southern Hills Music and Arts Festival (SHMAAF), those two tickets will be well worth every penny.

“It’s an event,” said Kevin Teasley, co-event coordinator. “It’s designed to be a huge event.”

The event will kick off Friday, Aug. 26, with Brulé, which will perform on the main stage at 6:30 p.m.

Owners will show their vehicles to the public at a free car show Sunday, Sept. 4, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the intersection of Mt. Rushmore Road and 6th Street in downtown Custer.  Vehicles are expected from both West and East River South Dakota as well as four other surrounding states. The show is being sponsored by the Dakotas Chapter of the Studebaker Drivers Club.

Golfers have busy start to season

To say the Custer High School boys golf team started its 2016 season in a busy fashion would be a bit of an understatement, as the team hit the links for two tournaments in two days in its first week of competition, competing at the Sturgis Invitational Aug. 16 and the Hot Springs Invitational Aug. 17.

In Hot Springs, the Wildcats placed fourth out of five teams, with a team score of 397. Noah Zacher was the team’s top finisher, as he placed 13th with an 89. Blake Martinz finished in 18th place with a 99, while AJ Kortemeyer tied for 19th with 100 and Austin Eggers was 25th at 109.

Summer projects make schools shine

As parents and guardians drop off their kids for the start of the new school year, they can breathe easy knowing they’re in a safe environment. In fact, that’s something Joe Uhrich, head of buildings and grounds for the Custer School District, takes very seriously.

“The buildings must be safe and clean for anybody that uses it — that’s the number one rule,” he said. “For my second rule, see rule one.”

Uhrich and his crew are constantly working year-round to make sure the school buildings in the district are clean, safe and maintained. There are also a number of projects done to update and enhance the buildings and classrooms.
