Buffalo Gap resident rips county services

When it comes to services provided by the county in which it sits, Buffalo Gap is at the end of the priority list. That was the position taken by Buffalo Gap resident Tommie McLaughlin when talking to the Custer County Commission at the commission’s Oct. 8 meeting. 

McLaughlin, her arm in a sling from a recent car wreck she blamed on poor road maintenance at the south end of Buffalo Gap, said road maintenance, law enforcement and customer service in general from the county leave something to be desired.

Crane to speak at history conference

Tying art through paintings of regional landmarks to the preservation of local history doesn’t seem like a match, but in Hill City-area artist Jon Crane’s mind, the two fit perfectly. Crane, one of the Black Hills’ most popular watercolor specialists, has built a career around painting old buildings in various states of vanishing, with one of his early subjects being the Standby Mine near Rochford. It wasn’t long after Crane completed this work that the structure succumbed to becoming rubble, but he was able to preserve its legacy through his classic work.

What do you care most about in life?

Most of us would put family at, or near, the top of such a list. Friends would be there. So would our jobs or businesses, our livelihoods. Our homes. Maybe our pets. Our hobbies and pastimes. Add in those around us: Neighbors, the community, etc.
