The Buffalo Roundup begins at 9:30 a.m. MDT on Friday, Sept. 28. The Arts Festival will run from Thursday, Sept. 27, through Saturday, Sept. 29. “Each year, the Buffalo Roundup brings up to 20,000 spectators from around the world to Custer State Park to view the park’s 1,300 buffalo and watch the Old West come alive,” said Katie Ceroll, director of the Division of Parks and Recreation. "To have an arts festival with more than 125 arts and craft exhibitors means that there will be no shortage of entertainment for the entire family.” The parking areas for the Roundup, located near the corrals along the Wildlife Loop Road, open at 6:15 a.m. MDT and close at 9 a.m. MDT on Sept. 28. For safety reasons, spectators need to remain in the viewing areas until all the buffalo are corralled which typically occurs around noon. The annual Arts Festival runs from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. MDT on Thursday and Friday and from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday, Sept. 29. The Arts Festival takes place near the State Game Lodge. “While the Buffalo Roundup’s primary purpose is herd management, it also provides our visitors an experience that is unique in the entire world,” said Jim Hagen, Secretary of the Department of Tourism. “This event sets South Dakota apart from other states. We hear from visitors around the world about how incredible it is to watch the bison thunder over the rolling prairie. It’s something they never forget and provides great storytelling about our state.” A state park entrance license is required on Thursday and Saturday, but there is no cost to attend the Buffalo Roundup or Arts Festival on Friday.

Enjoy Fall Colors On The Black Hills National Forest Custer, SD, September 18, 2018 – Fall colors are right around the corner and will be showing up all over the Black Hills. The Forest Service encourages you to get outdoors and enjoy one of nature’s most spectacular seasons. “The best viewing for Fall colors on the Forest is usually late September to early October,” said Scott Jacobson, Public Affairs Officer, Black Hills National Forest. Visit the Black Hills National Forest Fall Foliage Webpage for recommended fall color viewing areas across the Forest. A Few Fall Driving Safety Tips: • Watch for wildlife. Wildlife can run along and across roadways without notice. • Make sure you observe the rules of the roads such as posted speed limits and no passing zones. • Park your vehicle in designated parking/rest areas. • When parking along roadways, make sure you are not impeding traffic or blocking gates. The Black Hills National Forest hopes everyone enjoys this year’s fall color viewing. For more information on the Black Hills National Forest, visit http://www.fs.usda.gov/blackhills. Finally Attaining Tax Uniformity By Gov. Dennis Daugaard This past week, legislators returned to Pierre for a special legislative session. I don’t call a special session lightly. During my two terms as governor I have called only one other during the summer of 2017, to deal with the non-meandered waters issue. The benefits have to greatly outweigh the costs and the time spent, and the issue must be pressing enough to warrant immediate action. This special session was the result of a decades-long effort by states to achieve tax fairness, and I’m proud South Dakota led the charge. Earlier this year, in South Dakota v. Wayfair, Inc., the U.S. Supreme Court overturned a ruling that had allowed a state to require collection of sales tax by a retailer only if it had a physical presence in that state. That created an uneven playing field, requiring South Dakota’s brick-and-mortar Main Street businesses to collect sales tax, while many online retailers did not. After the U.S. Supreme Court ruled in our favor, however, we found ourselves in an ironic situation where every state but South Dakota could benefit from the decision. Because we had led the way on the litigation, an injunction imposed by our legislation prevented South Dakota from beginning to implement this change. Believing we should benefit from the national victory that we led, I called legislators to Pierre to consider a bill removing the injunction. On Wednesday, the Legislature overwhelmingly passed the measure. They also approved a proposal that will streamline collection of sales tax by requiring online “middle-men” like eBay, Etsy, and Amazon Marketplace to collect and remit sales tax on sales made using their platforms. As a state without an income tax that relies heavily on its sales and use tax, this is a substantial win. Our sales tax base will no longer be eroded by a shift to online sales, and we should even reclaim some of that eroded sales tax base. That will allow future state leaders to consider tax relief, or increases in for education, workforce, public safety, taking care of people, or other priorities. Perhaps more importantly, though, this is a victory for tax uniformity. Our local businesses have been faced with an unfair disadvantage, and now, finally, all who do business in our state will operate on a level playing field. Our Main Street businesses have always collected sales tax. They also employ our friends and neighbors, support our charities, and invest in our communities. We all appreciate the convenience and variety offered by ecommerce, but out-of-state sellers should not have a tax advantage over in-state sellers. This victory is the culmination of South Dakota’s efforts over decades. I voted on this issue when I was a state senator. Gov. Janklow, Gov. Rounds and many legislators prioritized this issue. Our congressional delegation also supported these efforts. I thank all who have played a part in this success. At last, we have finally leveled the playing field for all who do business in our state, and we’ve paved the way for any other state that wishes to do the same. Still searching for that dream job?
