Twins Fire Manager Ron Gardenhire After 13 Seasons

Tuesday, September 30, 2014

(From AP)

The Minnesota Twins have fired manager Ron Gardenhire after 13 seasons that included at least 92 losses in each of the last four years. The move was made Monday, ending the second-longest active tenure in the major leagues behind Mike Scioscia of the Angels. Gardenhire played an integral role in the franchise's renaissance, guiding the Twins to their first of six American League Central division titles in 2002 in his first season on the job. But Gardenhire's teams only got out of the first round once in those six trips. Gardenhire had one year left on his contract.

CUC looks to future

 

An official with Capital University Center in Pierre says the organization is looking at what courses and services CUC can offer the local community in the future.

 

With the fall semester underway, executive director Janelle Toman says the next step is to see what programs should be added or enhanced. She says one area being discussed is the offering of graduate courses.

 

Toman                                                                         8417

 

At the same, Toman says CUC is aware of its position in the Pierre-Fort Pierre area. She says CUC is working with local officials to determine what courses and programs are best needed for this area’s employers and employees.

 

Toman                                                                         8418

 

Toman says those type of discussions with local officials will continue.

 

Restored historical marker back at courthouse

 

It won’t make James H. Bell feel any better, but local residents can now read more clearly a historical marker that details his fate.

 

Members of the Pierre-Fort Pierre Historic Preservation Commission, with the help of Hughes County staff, Monday reinstalled a historical marker near the courthouse. The marker was refurbished and cleaned as part of a project by the Historic Preservation Commission.

 

The marker tells the story of Bell, who had killed Forest G. Small with a hatchet on December 4, 1884. Early on April 18, 1885, while being held in the Hughes County Jail, a mob grabbed Bell, dragged him out to the courthouse yard, leaned a ladder against the flag pole and hanged him.

 

Don Zeller of the Historic Preservation Commission says the marker is one of 24 such markers in Hughes and Stanley County. He says this marker, which had been located in the courthouse’s front yard near Capital Avenue, had lost its shine after years of being drenched by water sprinklers.

 

Zeller                                                   8419

 

The marker’s new location on the courthouse’s front yard is closer to the courthouse’s south front doors, away from the sprinklers.  Zeller says the repair work was done by Morris, Inc. He says the sign was cleaned, sandblasted and repainted.

 

Zeller                                                   8420

 

Zeller says the commission has received a $4,000 federal grant to refurbish or replace such signs. The other is at the old Fort Sully. A sign at the Pierre Post 8 American Legion Cabin will be placed soon.

 

 

Rainfall amounts

 

It has been another day so far of light rainfall in the Pierre-Fort Pierre area.

 

The National Weather Service in Aberdeen says the official rainfall in the last 24 hours at the Pierre Regional Airport is 0.04 hundredths.

 

Other rainfall amounts reported to KCCR are:

 

*** 0.11 hundredths at Anchor’s Point, Marion Gardens

 

*** 0.04 hundredths at East Fourth Street, Fort Pierre.

 

 

City Commission to approve budget tonight

 

Pierre City Commissioners will give its final approval tonight to its 2015 budget.

 

Last week, the commission did a combination of cutting expenses and raising the street maintenance feet to balance the budget. Mayor Laurie Gill says she has heard from such residents this past week who liked that decision.

 

Gill says this budget process, like those in past years, was unique.

 

Gill                                                                  8421

 

Outside agencies that have received city funding will remain at their 2013 level. The city also has approved for its share of the renovation of Hyde Stadium.

 

In the city’s process, many of the budget reduction decisions are made at the city staff level, not by the city commissioners. Gill says the budget making approach the commission has is to let the city staff, with the help of its commission liaisons, make their budget decisions themselves.

 

Gill                                                                  8423

 

The budget needs to be finalized by Wednesday, which is October 1. The new budget year begins January 1.
