Two of my favorite South Dakotans

Not sure if you know Jerry and Norma Wilson, but the Argus Leader did a story about their property by Vermillion.

“Since I was a small child, I’ve felt most alive in nature. I’ve spent most of life in rural areas observing, learning, hiking, skiing and lying in the grass and looking around,” Wilson, 63, says.

I met Jerry when he was editor of South Dakota magazine. Him and his wife are regulars at the Touch of Europe in Sioux Falls. Amazing people and great examples of how to live a progressive and honest lifestyle.

I’ll second that vote!
Jerry and Norma are the real deal. They are genuine, fun to talk to and exceptionally talented.
I feel very lucky to call them my friends.

I wish more South Dakotans their age were that cool.

I’ll third. Also, buy Jerry’s book! It’s really inspiring.

I’ve known Jerry and Norma since I took a class from Jerry at Mount Marty College. I think I was to blame for him getting fired but writing a point counterpoint about abortion. Catholics don’t like to print both sides of an issue.

Yeah, they are pretty proud liberals, good for them!
