Notes from Pierre:
- Secretary of Education Tom Oster exhorts South Dakotans to celebrate Teacher Appreciation Week.
- The same day, Governor Rounds issues a proclamation setting aside the entire month of May to raise awareness of noxious weeds. "As citizens, it is our duty to protect our lands and natural resources from noxious weed infestations," said Jon Farris, South Dakota Acting Secretary of Agriculture.
- May is also Beef Month. Month.
p.s.: ...and Archaeology and Historic Preservation Month! I can't keep track any more.
