Heart City Radio will sign off the air early this evening (Tues)at 8pm to accommodate transmitter maintenance. In our efforts to better serve our listeners, KVSH will be installing a brand new 5,000 watt transmitter to better reach serve area. We apologize to some of our remote listeners who have struggled to receive our signal due to reduced power while repairs to the old transmitter were attempted. The new transmitter arrived last week and was prepared for installation. The installation procedure began today and hopefully be completed on Wednesday. Once again KVSH radio will sign off at 8pm this evening for technical adjustments.

 

Creighton Grant to Study Tribal Diabetes

AP> Creighton University has been awarded a $207,000 grant to study whether traditional Talking Circles help American Indians on Nebraska and South Dakota reservations address their diabetes.  The university says Talking Circles are similar to modern therapy groups and could help American Indians better self-manage their diabetes.  American Indians have the highest diabetes death rate of any ethnic group in Nebraska and South Dakota.  Staff with Creighton's School of Nursing will work with health care providers at the Omaha Tribe's reservation in Rosebud, SD.  A total of 40 tribe members will be included in the two-year study.  The grant money came from the National Institutes of Health.

 

Rosebud Chief

AP> Whether she is wearing a police badge and pistol, or an eagle feather plume and the traditional regalia of a Native American fancy dancer, Grace Her Many Horses has earned the respect of the community she serves.  Her Many Horses is the first female police chief for the Rosebud Reservation and a champion powwow dancer who has been winning titles since she was 12.  53 year old Her Many Horses oversees 12 officers, covering 21 communities.

   

Business Class Finished

 

Seven area businesses or potential businesses, finished a 5 week basic business class sponsored by the Valentine Economic Development program. Some of those attending had business ides that they wanted to find out if they were viable. Two participants were established business people who were looking at possible expansion. The local economic development program coordinated with the Rural Enterprise Assistance Program to bring Barb White to Valentine from Herrick South Dakota to talk about business plans, bookkeeping, employees, marketing and other aspects of owning your own business. The classes ran for 5 sessions at 3 hours per session and met at the Mid Plains College Campus in Valentine.

The Valentine Economic Development program is looking offering a Quick Books class in the future which would work with businesses that have employees and those who don't. The class would most likely be a one time session for 3 or 4 hours. If anyone is interested in taking such a class, contact Mike Burge at 402-376-6842.
