Posted by Nicole
A group of people from the Presho area has kicked off a fund-raising to have white vinyl permanent fencing installed around the perimeter of the Presho Cemetery.
We have already received some memorial money designated specially for cemetery improvements, stated Bonnie Diehm.
Estimates on the cost of purchasing and installing the fencing have been gathered. Well start with the east fence and depending on how much money we get expand from there, added Diehm.
Diehm added that the original metal arch gates on the east side will be incorporated into the fencing project.

[b]State reaches agreement with BNSF for CORE railroad line[/b]

Posted by Nicole
PIERRE, SD- (April 28, 2005) Gov. Mike Rounds and officials from the BNSF Railway Company (BNSF) recently announced a settlement agreement that paves the way for the sale of the state-owned Core railroad line to BNSF, while providing enhanced transportation access to markets for South Dakota shippers and producers of agricultural products. The acquisition price is $41.64 million reduced by the value of the properties retained by the state. The sales agreement is subject to approval by the Surface Transportation Board.

This is great news for our farmers and shippers in South Dakota, said the Governor. In 1986, the state of South Dakota and BNSF entered into a contract regarding the operation of the Core railroad line in South Dakota. This contract included a formula allowing the BNSF to purchase the Core line under specific conditions at a time of their choosing. BNSF has exercised their option to purchase the Core line. As a condition of the sale, we negotiated a settlement agreement protecting and expanding access to the Core line for our South Dakota shippers. This agreement also settles two pending law suits involving the Core line.
