Jay Torgerson still remembered, mourned

Carol Torgerson doesn’t remember the last thing she said to her son Jay, nor does she remember the last thing he said to her. There was no indication at that time that it would be the last conversation they would ever have.

But impressed indelibly on Carol’s memory are the events of Friday, Dec. 3, 2004. As she had lost her husband, Don, on April 22 of that year, she had gone to Arizona alone that winter.

Boys tame Tigers in opener

Led by a balanced scoring attack and a strong defensive effort, the Custer High School boys basketball team started the Paul Kelley era out on a positive note with a 60-24 win over the visiting Oelrichs Tigers last Saturday evening at the Armory.

The Wildcats shook off an uneven first half to pull away in the third and fourth quarters, outscoring the visiting Tigers 32-9 in the second half.

“There were some positives and there were some negatives,”â��Kelley said of his team’s first game. “We’re a work in progress.”

New Zealand will be home for Jones

December will be a busy month for Taren Jones. In addition to finishing her first semester at Custer High School, where she is a junior, and getting ready for the holidays, Jones will be packing for an exchange trip to New Zealand, where she will live for 10 months.

“I have always been interested in veterinary school and want to go to college in Colorado. This led to me talking with a friend of my mom’s who went to college in New Zealand,” Jones said. “When we talked, I got really interested about going to New Zealand, so I looked more into it.”

Daugaard: It’s a wonderful life

It’s a busy week in South Dakota. There are Christmas gatherings to attend, cards to be sent and presents yet to be purchased. In schedules more hectic than usual, many of us will make time to honor our own Christmas traditions – from decorating the Christmas tree, to watching a particular Christmas movie, to singing carols or baking treats. In many families, one tradition is watching “It’s a Wonderful Life.”

“It’s a Wonderful Life” is the story of George Bailey, who repeatedly chooses to sacrifice his own dreams so that he can help others. When his father dies, George surrenders his plans to travel the world, instead taking his late father’s job at a small bank. The town scrooge, Mr. Potter, wants to shut down the bank and ultimately frames George for funds lost by George’s inept Uncle Billy.
