Two Fatalities in Local Accident

Presentation College in South Dakota is mourning the death of a basketball player and a graduate assistant coach.

The school issued a statement saying player Cameron Isreal and assistant coach and former player Terry Strong died Friday in a vehicle crash near Valentine, Nebraska.

Cherry County Sheriff's Deputy Joe Kreycik says that the vehicle the two were in crossed the center line on U.S. Highway 83 and collided head-on with another vehicle.

The 23-year-old Isreal was from Chandler, Arizona. The 26-year-old Strong was from the Los Angeles area.

The occupant of the other vehicle, a pick-up pulling hay equipment, was transported to the Cherry County Hospital for non life threatening injuries.


National Trails Day

Al Brock was our guest on the KVSH Comment Program on Wednesday. Mr Brock came in to discuss National Trails Day on Saturday June 6th which promotes awareness of the over 200,000 miles of trails in the nation which are open to the public.

On Sunday June 7th, there will be a “Trails Work Day” on the Minnechaduza trail by the city park. Volunteers are asked to meet at the foot bridge over the creek in the park at about 9am, and will work on the trails into the afternoon.

If you would like to help volunteer, you are asked to bring some basic pruning tools if you are able to.

The weather looks to be cooperative this Sunday with forecasters predicting some sunshine and upper 70s.
