$2k reward offered for burglary information

A $2,000 reward is being offered for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the person or persons responsible for the latest—and probably most expensive—in a string of burglaries that have occurred in and around Custer.

The money is being offered by the victims of the most recently discovered burglary, Gary and Nancy Hirt, part-time Custer residents who had thousands of dollars in merchandise stolen out of their cabin located in the Big Rock Park area. Among the items taken from the home that are known so far are a John Deer Gator UTV, a Yamaha Grizzly 660 four-wheeler, a Winchester 1894 lever action rifle, a Ruger Mark iii­­­­ hand gun, a 1978 Kawasaki K175 motorcycle, a Henry Golden Boy lever action, ammunition, alcohol and a Samsung TV.

Ashmore to perform in Macy’s parade

This Thanksgiving will be a little bit different for Custer High School senior cheerleader Kendall Ashmore. For one, she won’t be able to watch the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on TV. But don’t feel bad for her, because this year, she will be in it. 

Ashmore, who has been involved with cheerleading for six years, will perform with 1,500 other cheerleaders and dancers in the annual Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade on Thursday, Nov. 27.

Choir is singing to success

In the early morning hours, students and staff at Custer Jr./Sr. High School are still at home, preparing for the upcoming day. But for the select few who will represent Custer at the All-State competition, their day is just beginning.

Ten students have been rehearsing over the last few weeks — with practices beginning at 7 a.m. — in preparation of the All-State Chorus and Orchestra Grand Concert. The concert will be held Nov. 1 at the Sioux Falls Arena at 6 p.m. Mountain Standard Time and will be broadcast on South Dakota Public Broadcasting (SDPB) as it happens.

Shop Small on November 29

Small Business Saturday came about on Nov. 27, 2010, when the day was conceived and promoted by American Express using a nationwide radio and television advertising campaign. (If the company had used print advertising, it probably would have caught on better). The company also utilized social media and public relations campaigns.

The idea is to urge holiday shoppers to spend money in their local small businesses the Saturday after Thanksgiving. Large retail stores traditionally advertise all kinds of “door busters” on Black Friday. This year, many of those same stores will be open Thanksgiving Day, which kind of takes the fun out of hunting for early bargains on Friday. It also tends to ruin a great traditional American holiday.
