School nixes soccer program

Monday night was the end of the road for parents, supporters and athletes of the soccer program after the Custer School District Board of Education decided not to add the sport back. 

“John (Pedersen, interim superintendent) talked with other coaches about the soccer program and they felt since numbers had dropped in student population and with the cutbacks, we’re not at that level yet,” said Tom Martin, board president. “We need to be careful about adding another sport and make sure we have adequate numbers and funding.”

Soccer coach Craig Black was directed by the board to survey soccer players who would be interested in playing this coming school year. In his survey, he found that eight would like to play this year, with one on the fence. Last year’s team had 18 athletes.

Wildcat golfers improve shots

With the weather showing signs of improvement, the girls golf team was able to get out on the course and compete in two area matches. 

On Thursday, April 10, the team traveled to compete at the Belle Fourche quadrangular, which included Belle Fourche, Lead/Deadwood and Spearfish. Cassidy Adam shot 62 and Marlee Schneider shot 58 after playing nine holes.

“It was a bit cool and windy, which gave them some trouble but they did pretty well. They played pretty quickly,” said coach Royed Hollick. “Cassidy really liked the course, which is good, since we have more playing time there.”

Kindergarten dives into ‘Mission Possible’

All three kindergarten classes at Custer Elementary met with “Captain Character,” Brad Keizer, 4-H liaison for the Character Counts Program and Custer Elementary, and Michelle Watland, Custer Elementary counselor mission commander for the “Mission Possible” program. The two have been working together to stress the importance of building strong character in students at Custer Elementary.

This month’s classroom counseling theme is “Mission Possible,” which has a spy theme. All students were inducted as special agents of the program and received “top secret” envelopes with their mission assignments. Their mission, if they chose to accept it, was to secretly serve others for the next seven days and the rest of their lives.

Identity theft is on the rise

This tax season, an unbelievable number of identity thieves have been discovered by Internal Revenue Service officials, including at least one here in Custer County. It must be frightening to submit your tax return to the IRS, only to be told that it has already been filed by someone who stole your identity and was hoping to cash in on any tax refund that was due you.

In this day and age of internet purchasing with credit cards and doing all sorts of other financial business over the internet, it should come as no surprise that it is more important than ever to safeguard your social security number and other vital personal information. Identity thieves are everywhere and use every method imaginable from sophisticated computer technology to rummaging through discarded trash to find vital pieces of personal identity they can use fraudulently.
