February 8 The Army said Tuesday that it will allow the $3.8 billion Dakota Access oil pipeline to cross under a Missouri River reservoir in North Dakota, clearing the way for completion of the disputed four-state project. However, construction could still be delayed because the Standing Rock Sioux tribe, which has led opposition, said it would fight the latest development in court. The Army intends to cancel further environmental study and allow the Lake Oahe crossing as early as Wednesday, according to court documents the Justice Department filed that include letters to members of Congress from Deputy Assistant Army Secretary Paul Cramer. February 28 The Yankton City Commission voted Monday to enter into an agreement with the Heartland Humane Society to send impounded animals to their facility.

February 10 A federal appeals court refused Thursday to reinstate President Donald Trump’s ban on travelers from seven predominantly Muslim nations, unanimously rejecting the administration’s claim of presidential authority, questioning its motives and concluding that the order was unlikely to survive legal challenges. The three judges of the San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals said the argument that the ban targets Muslims raised “serious allegations” and presented “significant constitutional questions,” and they agreed that courts could consider statements by Trump and his advisers about wishing to enact such a ban. February 11 A cross-country chase that started Thursday in Yankton and ended in north-central Nebraska has resulted in the arrest of two men facing multiple charges. Lt. Michael Burgeson of the Yankton Police Department said he took part in the decision-making during the incident. The high-speed chase ran about 70 miles, reaching speeds of 100 miles per hour, and was unlike anything he had experienced in his career. The driver, 35-year-old James Lee Colman of Yankton, was wanted by authorities as a parole absconder, meaning he had not reported as required under his parole conditions. The passenger was 26-year-old Jarvis Bason of Sioux Falls. February 18 The suspect in last year’s robbery of the downtown Yankton Wells Fargo Bank has been officially arrested and indicted. According to a press release from the U.S. Attorney’s office in Sioux Falls, David William Giese of Yankton has been indicted by a federal grand jury for bank robbery. He appeared before U.S. Magistrate Judge Veronica L. Duffy Friday and pleaded not guilty to the indictment. The maximum penalty upon conviction is up to 25 years in custody and/or a $250,000 fine, five years of supervised release, and $100 to the Federal Crime Victims Fund. Restitution may also be ordered.

He has been selected as the state’s 2016 Sportswriter of the Year by the National Sports Media Association (NSMA). The award is voted on by South Dakota members of the NSMA. March 4 Yankton’s archery center may be seeing another expansion in the near future to help facilitate the growth of archery worldwide and to accommodate a growing interest in air rifle sports. During the Business Improvement District #1 board meeting, officials took the first step in providing the project with some of its funding. The proposed 20,503-square-foot addition to the National Field Archery Association (NFAA) Easton Yankton Archery Center would entail added archery space to keep up with standards for hosting larger archery tournaments, air-rifle facilities to attract tournaments in that growing sport, hunter safety courses, multi-sport training and competition space and added space for conventions that would complement the existing 49,000-square-foot facility. NFAA President Bruce Cull told the board that air rifles are quickly becoming popular, but facilities for their recreational use are severely lacking. March 6 One person died in a fire over the weekend in Yankton. Yankton County Emergency Management public information officer Lee Rettig said that one fatality occurred, but no other information on the victim was available. Three families were displaced by the fire and the American Red Cross is working with the families to find accommodations. March 8 A 2-year-old girl has been identified as the victim in a fatal apartment fire Friday night in Yankton.

The victim has been identified as Kylee Colleen Saul, a resident of the apartment. March 11 Two Yankton High School seniors are celebrating this week.
