RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council has removed President Cyril "Whitey" Scott from office.

The Rapid City Journal reports that the council made the move Tuesday, resolving a period of uncertain leadership that afflicted the south-central South Dakota tribe for much of Scott's time in office.

A telephone listing for Scott could not be found.

According to the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA), Nebraska corn farmers will plant 9.3 million acres of corn, equal to last year’s total acres planted. With Nebraska corn farmers’ intentions of planting 9.3 million acres of corn this year, farmers will spend about $280 per acre to get the crop in the ground and off to a good start. This figure, multiplied by the estimated 9.3 million corn acres to be planted in Nebraska, grows to more than a $2.6 billion investment by the state’s corn farmers over a two-month period. That amount does not include land costs, labor or equipment – it’s purely inputs like seed, fuel, and fertilizer. Looking beyond these initial inputs, however,...

Seeding of small grains crops in South Dakota remains ahead of last year's pace and the long-term average. The Agriculture Department says in its weekly crop progress report that 44 percent of the spring wheat, 43 percent of the oats and 14 percent of the barley crop is in the ground. Some of the oat crop has already begun to emerge. The dry weather that's helping farmers get in the fields isn't helping with soil moisture. Topsoil moisture statewide is rated 69 percent short or very short, compared with 16 percent last year at the same time. Subsoil moisture is 65 percent short or very short, also compared to 16 percent a year ago. Stock water supplies in South Dakota are rated 37 percent...
