REDFIELD, S.D. — A hostage negotiation at Redfield Community Memorial Hospital resulted in an armed man being arrested Monday afternoon, June 25. No one was harmed in the more than five hours that Matthew Mathern was barricaded in the hospital and negotiating with law enforcement, and he eventually surrendered peacefully.
KIMBALL, S.D. — A pregnant south-central South Dakota woman was airlifted to a burn unit in Minneapolis on Monday afternoon after a grease fire left third-degree burns on her stomach and legs. Pam Bice, 20, of Kimball, was outside at her twin sister's house before the fire started, she said by phone Tuesday afternoon. Her sister, Madison Bice, found the fire in the kitchen when she brought her dog inside.
RELIANCE — Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt visited a central South Dakota farm on Wednesday, and state farmers were not afraid to let him know what they thought about his time in office so far. In short, they're not thrilled about it, and they're demanding that something change. "As I came to South Dakota, there were a few billboards greeting me, and they didn't say 'I hope you're having fun,'" Pruitt said. Instead, the administrator said he saw messages imploring him to support ethanol over big oil refineries.
