New Business Brings Horror Year Round

Mar 16, 2018
Decory's Haunt Facebook

For Many St Patrick’s Day, conjures up images of leprechauns and four leaf clovers-but a new business is changing that. DeCory’s Haunt brings year round terror to South Dakota with holiday themed haunted houses for more than Halloween. 

This is the sound of the St. Patrick’s Day themed haunted house. And full disclosure, some of those screams are coming from me because it’s terrifying.

DeCory’s Haunt recently hosted its first attraction on Pine Ridge. It was a Valentine’s Day themed Haunted House. Adonis Saltes helps run the business.

South Dakota State University's men's basketball team came up short in its first round NCAA Tournament game yesterday. The Ohio State University Buckeyes withstood a valiant effort from the Jackrabbits to win 81-73 in Boise, Idaho. 

The Jackrabbits were down by ten late in the second half before rallying to tie the Buckeyes at 70 with only two minutes left in the game. However, Ohio State ended the contest on an 11-3 run to get the win.  


Mike Daum paced SDSU with 27 points. David Jenkins, Jr. and Brandon Key added 16 points each in the losing effort.

She says rain showers will eventually transition to snow later this evening, with widespread accumulations expected through tomorrow. 


Rounds Votes To Ease Dodd-Frank Regulations

Rounds for Senate

Ten years after global investment bank Bear Stearns’ near collapse, which kick started the Great Recession, the United States Senate is easing financial regulations meant to prevent a future one.

South Dakota US Senator Mike Rounds says those regulations, the Dodd-Frank Act are burdensome to community banks. He voted in favor of the bill.

US Senator Mike Rounds says the one-size-fits-all approach of the Dodd-Frank Act impacts community banks in South Dakota. He says because of that smaller banks must deal with “onerous” paperwork that larger banks comply with.
