City braces for huge influx of bikers

Preparation for the 75th Sturgis Motorcycle Rally—expected to be the largest such Rally in history—began across the state virtually the minute last year’s Rally came to a close. Among the entities preparing for the crush of humanity expected to flood the Hills during the Rally is the City of Custer, which addressed a pair of Rally-related topics at its Feb. 17 meeting.

City officials have been meeting with representatives from the South Dakota Department of Transportation, South Dakota Highway Patrol and the Custer County Sheriff’s Department to discuss how to deal with the swarm of bikers, which is expected to push one million Hills-wide. The typical Rally is 300,000 to 400,000.

Global warming being debunked

If you happen to mention global warming to some 100 million Americans who have been subject to record snowfalls and freezing temperatures for the past three or four weeks, you are liable to end up with your head stuck in one of those eight-foot tall snowbanks. The state of Massachusetts and entire northeastern part of the country has been especially hard hit. We can’t imagine the hardships our fellow Americans in that part of the country are facing after being  socked in for so long.
