This is the 30th consecutive year NASCIO has honored outstanding information technology achievements in state government through the awards. The State of South Dakota was recognized in the Cybersecurity category for our Email Threat Assessment Evaluation. The submission is titled Walleyes, Whales and Cybersecurity. Projects and initiatives from NASCIO member states, territories, and the District of Columbia were eligible for nomination. NASCIO members served as volunteer judges to review the 120+ submissions, narrowing the nominees down to finalists in each category. From these finalists, a recipient will be announced during an awards dinner at the upcoming NASCIO Annual Conference this October in San Diego, CA. “For thirty years, NASCIO awards have honored exemplary state information technology projects,” said Denis Goulet, Commissioner, Department of Information Technology, State of New Hampshire and Awards Committee Co-Chair. “These awards provide a national platform to honor states and project teams on a job well done and to demonstrate the integral and transformative nature IT can have on state government and the experiences of citizens.” Jim Edman, the State’s Chief Information Security Officer said, “The Bureau of Information and Telecommunications (BIT) prioritizes cyber security as one of our most important initiatives. NASCIO members across the country have also prioritized cyber security as its number one priority since 2013. This award reaffirms that the time and efforts our staff invests in working with our clients to protect our confidential data is recognized as one of the top programs in the country. “ “The prestige of this awards Free Credit Freezes Change Credit Management Following amendments to the federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, anyone can now apply a freeze to their credit reports for free at any time.

Dennis Daugaard October in South Dakota is a glorious month. I love the crisp mornings, chilly evenings and weekend sounds of marching bands in homecoming parades. And I truly love the annual gathering of family and friends for pheasant season, the best fall classic of them all. When I was a boy hunting with my dad or my school friends, the sharp cackle of a rooster pheasant flushed from fireweed along a fencerow or from a strip of unharvested corn or milo set my heart pumping. All these years later that unmistakable sound still has that effect. The tradition of fall pheasant hunting may not be unique to South Dakota, but I’m convinced we do it better than anybody else. But, then, we should. We’ve been doing it for a century now. This year marks the 100th pheasant season in South Dakota. Think of that. From a few visionaries who introduced that first hunting season in Spink County in 1919, ‘10 FORD TAURUS LIMITED Price STK 159300 Red $ 11,500 ‘17 MITSUBISHI LANCER 4 DR Price STK 006314 $ 13,995 ‘11 FORD F250 CREW CAB XLT 4X4 6.2 L.

I tell people the hunt is a tradition nearly as old as South Dakota itself. The 100th anniversary proves my point. It’s one of many reasons our state is such a great place to live or visit, and it’s a big reason so many former residents return to their roots each fall. They are drawn by a tradition instilled in them by the generations before them. Pheasant season in South Dakota is always a great experience. This year could be especially so. The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks brood survey earlier this year showed a 47 percent increase in bird numbers over last year. The survey uses a pheasants-per-mile index, and the GFP biologists tell me this year’s count is 2.47 birds per mile, up from 1.68 last year. The survey also shows more birds – and therefore more hunting opportunities – are spread across a broader area of the state. ‘17 FORD ESCAPE SE Price STK A60062 $ ‘17 FORD EXPLORER LIMITED 4X4 20,995 ‘09 CHEVY SUBURBAN 1500 LT Silver - WAS $14,794 Price STK 267981 $ $ NOW 12,995 15,995 4X4 $ 33,561 Price STK D16582 $ 33,919 ‘15 FORD F150 CREW CAB XLT ‘05 CHEVY SILVERADO CREW CAB Price STK 269326 $ ‘15 FORD F150 CREW CAB LARIAT ‘15 FORD FUSION SE Price STK 225428 Price STK C70262 9,995 Price STK D59467 $ 4X4 32,957 ‘14 FORD FUSION SE Price STK 324561 Black $ 13,871 That’s exciting news. The statewide season opens Oct. 20 and runs through Jan. 6. The GFP Walk-in Area program added 39,000 acres of hunting land this year, meaning about 1.1 million acres of public hunting land is available in the heart of the pheasant range. The department has a web-based interactive map of public lands and private lands leased for public hunting. It may be found at: https://gfp.sd.gov/ hunting-areas/. Whether you hunt public or private land, I encourage you to be courteous with others and respectful of the land and the wildlife. Conditions are right for a memorable hunting season. As I walk the fields, I intend to pause now and then to celebrate the tradition, enjoy the company of my hunting partners and revel in simply being outdoors in the fall in the best place in the world. ‘15 FORD EXPLORER XLT Price STK B89681 Leather $ 20,499 ‘17 CHEVY CRUZE LT Price STK 133300 White $ 14,995 ‘11 FORD F150 CREW CAB XLT Price STK A77414 4X4 $ 18,816 ‘17 FORD FLEX SEL AWD Price STK A12020 Leather $ 25,585 ‘13 FORD EXPLORER XLT Price STK C07827 Leather $ 18,350 ‘17 NISSAN VERSA 4 DR Price STK 419542 $ 12,995 ‘16?FORD?FUSION?SE Price STK 133758 $ 16,754 ‘17 DODGE GRAND CARAVAN GT Leather • WAS $20,908 Price $ STK 562401 NOW 18,995 MOODY MOTOR CO.
