The investigation continues into the disappearance of numerous state flags and the large United States flag from the Museum at Presho.
Lyman County Sheriff Don Manger states that his office is working on the case, but few leads exist. Manger added, If anyone has any knowledge of the whereabouts of the flags or if anyone witnessed unusual activity around the Main Street flag display or the museum grounds during the Presho Centennial weekend celebration please call the sheriffs office at 869-2267.

A group of area citizens are offering a $1,000 reward for the conviction of the person or persons who stole the flag from the memorial.
There were ten state flags and four poles valued at $391.97 taken from the Main Street display. The rental company, Maximum Promotions of Sioux Falls owns the display.

The 10 foot by 15 foot flag from the Lyman County Veteran and Pioneer Memorial at the museum is valued at around $250.00 according to American Legion member Jerry Smith. The Legion handles the flag display at the memorial.

A Presho resident reported the missing flags to the sheriffs office Monday, July 4th.

[b]Catholic Church welcomes new preist[/b]

Father Timothy Castor has been assigned to the Christ the King Catholic churches in Presho, Draper, and Murdo as administrator of the parish. He moved here on Wednesday and the next Sunday, July 17, 2005 was his first day preaching.

Growing up in a Baptist family, Father Castor had known from an early age he wanted to do something relating to ministry. During family reunions he would listen to stories of relatives who were pastors or missionaries. It was these stories that led him to do a year of missionary work in Jerusalem during his junior year of college. The trip to Jerusalem along with study, prayer, and conversations with many people guided him to the decision to become Catholic.

After graduating college with a Bachelor of Science in Bible from Philadelphia College of Bible in Langhorne, PA, he then went to live in a monastery in Massachusetts for five years with 6 months at the head monastery in Scotland. During this time he volunteered as a missionary in Thailand. He decided monastery life was not his calling and felt the need to become a priest.
