Now Kate will have more time to tan.

Planned Parenthood Lays Off SD Director

Planned Parenthood of Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota said the bad economy prompted it to eliminate 9.5 positions, including the director of its two South Dakota clinics.

Kate Looby confirmed she was laid off, and said she understands it was a financial decision.

She has led the clinics since March 2003.

Planned Parenthood spokeswoman Kathi Di Nicola said the organization felt it couldn’t keep its public affairs staffing level and also maintain enough workers for health care services.

She said the other positions cut were in Minnesota, and stressed that the Sioux Falls and Rapid City clinics both will stay open.

Planned Parenthood has 28 clinics and 290 employees in Minnesota, North Dakota and South Dakota.

Just wondering does Kate tan at the same place as Scott Heideprim?

Oh, I think Kate has a few shades on Scott. It’s funny because I saw her at the McGovern Day dinner and her husband’s skin tone matches hers.

Clarification… Church at the Gate is not on Cliff Ave as you frequently suggest- the biker church you are referring to there is not us. I’m dancing down W. 26th St. Yes we do allow dancing : )

But do you allow tanning excessivly?

Hard to tell in this town where anything is, seems like there is a steeple or someone holding a ABORTIOM HURTS WOMEN or Ron Paul sign on every streetcorner.

Hickey,
What a sad, pathetic man you are. Also, so mistaken. Kate Looby’s job was eliminated because of hard economic times, not job performance. She’s beat two abortion bans in two years. She kicked Leslee’s ass TWICE! Everything is a conspiracy with you. So pathetic. Planned Parenthood relies heavily on donations to operate. For whatever services a woman receives, it’s based on her income. I went there while I was in college and didn’t have health insurance. It was great. If PP wasn’t an option, I wouldn’t have been able to afford birth control. Every woman should be able to have access to birth control. Wanna get rid of abortion? Eliminate the need for it. Make birth control widely available for every man and woman in this country. That’s why no one takes Leslee and loonies seriously, majority of them don’t agree with birth control. Just ask Palin how well abstinence ed only worked out for her daughter.
I see that the VYFL office bldg. is for sale. I guess VYFL is bankrupt, funny.
So Hickey, you better keep an eye on yourself over at Church at the Gate, because I am. In fact, look over your shoulder, I may be looking in at you right now.
Love,
Your mistress

Lucky for him the world is going to end soon? Huh?

Dec. 21, 2012 – according to the Mayans… Well, maybe. All kinds of weirdos say that’s when it will happen, but I figure the Mayans came to that date and decided to leave the next calendar to some future Mayan generation, not knowing they’d be wiped out by then.

The Mayans were not that smart anyway, it took the Spainards to teach them how to ferment tequila.

#15 Ghost of Dude on 12.05.08 at 9:22 am

They were too busy watching the stars.

#16 l3wis on 12.05.08 at 9:56 am

And starring in Kahula commercials.

#17 Angry Guy on 12.05.08 at 11:56 am

The Mayan calendar does end on Dec 21st, 2012. It doesn’t necessarily mean that the world will end. It is actually the end of one 26,000 era and the beginning of a new age. Our solar system literally aligns itself with the axis of our Milky Way,giving way to what the Mayans refered to as ‘xibalba be’, or the “Road to the Underworld”.

I don’t know abotu you guys, but I’m going to be standing on top of this pyramid @ 11:11AM on December 21st, 2012. If nothing else, it will be a grewat excuse to be in paradise over the holiday.
Who’s with me?

#18 l3wis on 12.05.08 at 11:57 am

I have a feeling you will not be the only one there, count me in, I’ll bring the Kahula.
