Buffalo prices up, revenue down

Prices were up across the board for the buffalo offered to the highest bidder at the 49th annual Custer State Park Fall Classic Buffalo Auction last Saturday, Nov. 15, although the total money the park raised was lower than a year ago.

This year’s auction brought in $380,325, down from last year’s number of $476,655. Those numbers are deceiving, however, as the park sold only 224 buffalo this year, as compared to 324 a year ago.

Dorton to retire from DI

After years filled with planning, brainstorming, preparing and, most importantly, fun, Cozy Dorton is stepping down from her role as affiliate director of Destination Imagination. While she may be stepping down from Destination Imagination, she still has plans for furthering the program, all while keeping its message fun and educational.

Destination Imagination (DI) is an after-school program that offers students a unique idea-development process, as well as teaches valuable skills, such as higher-level thinking, teamwork and problem solving. It is offered in 48 states and 30 countries. The program intrigued Dorton since it challenged students in more ways than just academics.

Elections have consequences

Barack Obama couldn’t have said it any better after the 2008 presidential election results were in. A Jan. 23, 2009, gathering of top congressional leaders from both parties was held for a discussion over the shape and size of the newly-elected president’s economic stimulus plan. The purpose of the meeting was to promote bipartisanship.

When Obama was questioned over the contents and size of the stimulus package, he replied, “I won,” according to those who were in attendance at the meeting. Those two words probably were the best indication of how this new president was going to work with Republicans and unite the country, as his campaign rhetoric stated.
