In 2016 the South Dakota State Historical Society-Archives received a two-year $240,000 grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities to digitize historical newspapers. The project is part of Chronicling America, a Library of Congress initiative to develop an online database of select historical newspapers from around the United States. Several Sioux Falls German titles have recently been added to Chronicling America: The Sud (Soot) Dakota Nachrichten (Knock-rick-ten), 1896-1900; the Sud-Dakota Nachrichten und Herold, 1900-1901; the Nachrichten-Herold, 1901-1907; and the Deutscher (Doit-shur) Herold, 1907-1913. Further issues of these titles will be added to the website in later batches, as well as other titles from around the state. To view these newspapers please visit the Chronicling America Website: http:// chroniclingamerica.loc.gov/newspapers/?state=South+Dakotaðnicity=&language These titles join others that are already available, including the Canton Advocate, Dakota Farmer’s Advocate, Dakota Farmers’ Leader, Lincoln County Advocate, Canton Daily Leader, The Daily Press and Dakotaian, Yankton Daily Press and Dakotaian, the Press and Daily Dakotaian, Forest City Press, Hot Springs Star, Hot Springs Weekly Star, Turner County Herald, Kimball Enterprise, Kimball Graphic, Black Hills Union, Black Hills Union and Western Stock Review, Pierre Weekly Free Press, Sisseton Weekly Standard, Citizen-Republican (Scotland, SD), Mitchell Capital and Saturday News (Watertown, SD). As part of the grant the State Archives will digitize around 100 rolls of microfilmed newspapers pre-dating 1922 to be included in this collection, noted Chelle Somsen, state archivist. This is the second grant the State Archives has received to participate in this project, she said. For more information, contact the State Historical Society-Archives at 605-773-3804. State Archives hours are 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m. CDT Monday-Friday and the first Saturday of most months. SIOUX FALLS, S.D. – The supply of new jobs in South Dakota is growing, an estimated 7 percent increase in the decade ending in 2024. Those new jobs will be increasingly knowledge based, which challenge public universities and other education providers to supply enough skilled workers to fill those positions in a state where the workingage population is not growing. The latest Board of Regents’ analysis confirms the significant extent to which graduates from South Dakota’s six public universities remain in state—either hired into the workforce or enrolled in further studies. Based on the 2015 graduation cohort, the public universities retain 70.5 percent of their homegrown graduates in state the year following college graduation, either to work or to pursue additional postsecondary education. More than 30 percent of out-of-state students completing degrees at the same institutions also are placed here a year after MV Shopper MV Shopper WASHINGTON, Nov. 29, 2017 – Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue today announced the award of two grants to help rural water and sewer utilities recover from recent and future natural disasters.

When comparing raw numbers in the latest analysis, 674 more graduates remained in South Dakota over a FY06 baseline. This placement rate would likely be even higher, regents’ officials noted, but the data do not account for degree completers who are selfemployed, employed by the federal government (including members of the armed forces), or enrolled in out-of-state postsecondary institutions while living in South Dakota. “These findings underscore the economic importance of intensifying efforts to boost graduate production in South Dakota,” said Mike Rush, the regents’ executive director and CEO. “Public universities play a critical role in meeting the state’s skilled workforce needs.” Delivering education by distance is one way that public higher education meets this workforce challenge.

YANKTON OFFICE: 605-665-9675 OR 800-658-3631 “USDA is a strong partner in the long-term recovery of rural communities after a season of devastating hurricanes,” Perdue said. “These grants will provide resources rural communities need to assess damage, develop rebuilding plans and get access to technical assistance and clean water. USDA is standing with these affected communities every step of the way.” USDA is awarding the National Rural Water Association (NRWA) and the Rural Community Assistance Partnership (RCAP) each a $500,000 grant. The funding is being provided through the Water and Waste Disposal Technical Assistance and Training Grant program in USDA Rural Development’s Water and Environmental Programs (WEP). NRWA and RCAP will use the grants to provide training and technical assistance, onsite repairs, and utility management advice for rural water and sewer utilities impacted by disasters. These utilities serve communities that have 10,000 people or less. Many of them have very limited capacity after a catastrophic event to access immediate assistance for assessment and restoration. USDA’s assistance helps these small utilities recover faster and enables first responders, rural citizens and businesses to have access to clean water. The grants also will be used to help rural utilities apply for Federal Emergency Management Administration (FEMA) disaster programs, file insurance recovery claims, and strengthen operations and continuity of service plans in times of emergencies. Technical assistance will include assisting new and returning Rural Development WEP funding recipients to prepare applications for water and waste disposal loans and grants and other financing options to supplement their needs. USDA Rural Development provides loans and grants to help expand economic opportunities and create jobs in rural areas. This assistance supports infrastructure improvements; business development; housing; community services such as schools, public safety and health care; and high-speed internet access in rural areas.
