Info sought on alleged Simianer victim

Former City of Custer planning administrator Scott Simianer was back in Seventh Judicial Circuit  Court last Thursday morning before Circuit Court Judge Craig Pfeifle, with Simianer’s attorney, Randy Connelly, requesting information on psychological assessment done on the alleged victim in the case of a civil proceeding several years ago.

Connelly said he was still going through the “voluminous materials” regarding the civil case, and said the requested assessment may reveal information pertinent to the case.

Teslas ride the Southern Hills

Bright, shiny, new Tesla electric cars began showing up in Custer last Thursday night for the third annual Custer Chamber of Commerce-sponsored Tesla Rally held this past weekend.

Early arrivers were the first of some 62 cars that came this year from all over the United States. “Some are just learning about it on their road trips,” Rod Hoffman said last Friday afternoon. He is a Tesla owner from Denver. It was Hoffman, along with his brother-in-law, Custer Chamber executive director Dave Ressler, who organized the first rally here three years ago with 10 cars participating. Last year there were 35 Teslas here.

Hammer is Teacher of the Year

When Karen Hammer heard her name called as this year’s “Teacher of the Year,” only one word could describe her feelings: shocked. 

“I was shocked, since I am surrounded by many others who are deserving of this award,” she said.

Hammer was named  Hermosa School’s teacher of the year in early April, receiving the Custer School District’s Teacher of the Year title on Thursday, April 28, at the district’s annual awards ceremony and teacher retirement dinner at Crazy Horse Memorial.

Government oversteps its bounds again

In a recent newspaper column, Sen. Mike Rounds points out that once again the Obama administration has overstepped its bounds in mandating another harmful regulation. This time Obama and his Department of Labor wants to more than double the salary requirements that qualify employees for overtime pay of time and a half.

The current guideline is that employees earning $23,660 or less automatically qualify for overtime pay for hours worked over 40 in a week. DOL initially wanted to raise this figure to over $53,000 a year, but recently settled on $47,476 that would become effective Dec. 1 this year. Where they came up with this figure and why is anybody’s guess. Why does this administration do this and other things unilaterally without going through Congress?
