Man gets 5 months in jail for stealing dialysis center art

A South Dakota man has been sentenced to five months in prison after admitting that he was part of a group that stole art from a dialysis center on an Indian reservation and sold it for drug money.

A federal judge in Pierre has also ordered 28-year-old Seryl Leroy Pomani to follow his prison term with two years of supervised release and pay more than $15,000 in restitution along with his co-defendants. Pomani, of Rosebud, pleaded guilty in July to third-degree burglary.

Authorities say the group broke into the DaVita Dialysis Center on the Rosebud Indian Reservation in January. The group stole various items, including star quilts and dream catchers.

Court records show Pomani and his co-defendants sold the quilts and used the proceeds to buy marijuana and methamphetamine.

 

Kids' Discovery Hike at Fort Niobrara NWR on National Public Lands Day

Niobrara National Scenic River (NSR) park rangers will present a guided Kids’ Discovery Hike on National Public Lands Day, Saturday, September 24th. Participants should meet at the Fort Falls Trailhead—past the bison corrals—at Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge at 10:00 a.m. to see the trail like never before.

The hike will lead to the beautiful Fort Falls waterfall and beyond. At the Niobrara NSR, children may use dip nets to discover the aquatic creatures living below the surface. Park rangers will loan a limited number of binoculars and magnifying glasses to participants, so that they may get a closer look at birds and bugs along the way. Children will discover the fascinating life that is often overlooked, but is really within feet of them.

As part of the National Public Lands Day celebration, kids will help keep the lands everyone owns pristine by picking up litter along the way. Gloves will be provided, and park rangers will pick up anything the children should not touch.

This event is part of the year-long celebration of the 100th birthday of the National Park Service (NPS). Established in 1916, the NPS manages over 400 special places protected by the American people, including most of the Niobrara NSR. Participants may pick up a Centennial Junior Ranger booklet to discover more about national park sites.

This event is targeted toward children 6-12 years old, but participants of all ages are welcome. The hike will be up to one mile in length, and last one hour. This program is sponsored by the Niobrara NSR and the Fort Niobrara National Wildlife Refuge. The Niobrara National Scenic River is managed by the US Fish and Wildlife Service throughout the Refuge, and the NPS for the remainder of its length.

For more information, please contact the Niobrara NSR Visitor Center at 402-376-1901.
