Clint Eastwood announces DSU donation

That was nice of Mr. Eastwood to make it to little old South Dakota to announce such a big deal, Sanford putting his name on another building.

Smoking Bad, Beer Drinking Good!

As the mayor is set to chew all of our butts (no pun intended) about smoking, he is taking the EC siding settlement money and building more beer coolers and expanding the junk food kitchens at the facility (Item #1, Consent Agenda).

First off, it is hypocritical to expand drinking at the EC while banning smoking. And secondly, we should have used the settlement money for what it is for, fixing the P.O.S. siding.

Still waiting for the City’s Risk Management department to tell us tearing out a 90 foot load bearing wall was an ‘Act of God’.

When is this mean streak towards us from God gonna end? She must still be mad we didn’t vote for Hillary.

An audit on the Events Center?

This audit is similar to wiping your butt 8 hours after you took a crap . . . but I will keep an open mind 😉

MMA a slam dunk

I was a little surprised last night at the city council meeting that the repeal on MMA fighting in publicly owned buildings passed by an 8-0 city council vote, with little discussion. But a part of me shouldn’t. Besides the fact that since MMA fighting is already going on in our community and this just expands it to other facilities, I have noticed lately that Councilor Erickson has been very successful at building coalitions with her fellow councilors. Her legislative experience is proving to be handy these days. Now if she can actually convince the council they should be shaping policy on all levels of city government, we may see more changes in the future.

 

Denny Sanford wants to teach your kids how to be asexual aliens?

If you think the High School Activities Association had problems before with their trans-gender policy, give it a few years;

In 2014, Sanford first told KELOLAND News about Z, the mascot of the Sanford Harmony Program. Z is a Martian from a planet that doesn’t have boys and girls. He’s supposed to start an open dialogue so boys and girls get a chance to talk openly about gender.

Apparently on the planet Z the storks deliver the newborns. Didn’t we have enough problems with the Tele-Tubbies? While I think it is good to teach kids that boys and girls can grow up to do whatever they want to and to work together, I’m not sure how an asexual alien from the planet Z is going to get this message across? Or how this is going to end divorces? I have often joked if you want to end divorces don’t get married to begin with. Why do we always have to travel to cartoon fantasy land to teach kids things about LIFE?

I bet Denny got the idea from an old Star Trek episode.
