In his earliest memories of his family’s farm, Ethan Uhlir rides in an old truck with his grandfather Arden, feeding cattle and mending fences. Before Arden’s death five years ago, he “reminded me that I was a good cattleman,” Ethan said, and “I have to keep it like that.”Ethan, now 17, still notices his grandfather’s wiring technique in fence posts scattered across the farm in the rolling plains of northeast Nebraska, along the South Dakota border. He walks along the same paths as six generations of Uhlirs, but Ethan may be the last to work the land.

A 529 plan is a tax-advantaged account that lets parents invest for their child's college expenses, and the plans vary by state. You can invest in 529 plans to save toward educational expenses like tuition, books and supplies, and other college/university costs. The difference between 529 plans and custodial accounts, however, is that 529 plans are reserved strictly for secondary education. You can purchase direct-sold 529 plans through investment platforms like Fidelity and other online brokerages. Below is a list of direct-sold 529 plans by state:Alabama - District of Columbia*None of the states above require you to be a state resident to open a 529 plan.

WASHINGTON — As Thanksgiving and Christmas near, it's not uncommon for consumers to talk (and grouse) about gas prices. While the annual complaints about gas prices are expected, there is some truth behind the griping this year. And when you live a rural lifestyle, a bump in gas prices can cause sharp pain. These are rural states and in many of them, agriculture plays an important, if not dominant, role. The impact of higher gas prices just offers one example of how Democrats and Republicans truly live in different worlds.

Small cities are losing air service, with some having just one option to connect to the country's national air network. Richard Aboulafia of the Teal Group explained that the "Southwest Effect" also had an impact on the demand in these small cities. According to Travel Weekly, the Department of Transport coined the term in 1993 to describe a drop in fares and increase in passenger volume when Southwest Airlines entered a market. While many towns are getting left in the dust, the government has set up a subsidy called the Essential Air Service program that can protect some of these communities. Two cities dropped by United — Pierre and Watertown in South Dakota — are among the airports on the EAS list.

The "Build Back Better" package making its way through Congress provides $390 billion for nationwide pre-kindergarten and subsidized child care, but requires states to pay up to 40% of the cost. That could be a deal-breaker for conservative states reluctant to spend money on safety-net programs -- even though some of the biggest per-capita benefits would go to poor, Republican-led states including Mississippi and West Virginia. It would not be the first time that Republican-led states balk at a federal program on concerns over cost and government overreach. "States have different budgets and funding priorities," said Rachidi, who opposes the Biden plan. Advocates point out that many Republican-led states already have pre-K programs in place, while others like Alabama and Arkansas have used federal coronavirus aid to expand their early-childhood programs.

Student debt balances among 2020 graduates remained at an all-time high. Last year's borrowing graduates in New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Delaware owed close to $40,000 for their bachelor's degree, on average, according to a report by the Institute for College Access and Success. Nearly 75% of 2020 college graduates had student debt in South Dakota. Federal student loan balances tell only part of the story. More students are taking out private students loans, too.

When the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops convened in Baltimore this week, abortion was on the agenda. Since when have U.S. Catholic bishops respected the conscience rights of Catholics? Bishop Joseph Tyson of Yakima, Washington, was so worried that Hispanic farmworkers in his flock might be wary of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine that he visited a farmworkers center and got the shot. The Diocese of Bismarck, North Dakota, told Catholics that they should not get the Johnson & Johnson vaccine and that health workers should not distribute it because it was “morally compromised.” The Archdiocese of New Orleans warned Catholics to avoid the Johnson & Johnson vaccine for the same reason. But since when have U.S. Catholic bishops respected the conscience rights of Catholics?

Drug overdose deaths went down in just four states: Delaware, New Hampshire, New Jersey and South Dakota. South Dakota had a nearly 20 percent decrease in overdose deaths, the greatest by far. Drug overdose deaths increased nearly 140 percent from 2000 to 2014. Overdose deaths decreased slightly from 2017 to 2018, giving experts hope that the nation was past its peak, but deaths began trending upward again the following year.

Passing the Black Maternal Health Momnibus Act, which includes a set of transformative policies for maternal health, is the next important step in tackling this complicated issue. Solving racial disparities in maternal health outcomes is the responsibility not only of people who work in health care.

“But I’m not a Cherokee artist or Indian artist, no more than Brancusi was a Romanian artist,” he said. Jimmie mainly grew up in rural Arkansas, where his father found odd jobs in construction and carpentry. His father taught him to carve wood, and from early on, Mr. Durham said, stone and wood felt to him “like living things.”“These things have always talked to me, jabbered at me,” he said. In Switzerland Mr. Durham teamed up with Indigenous friends from Chile and Bolivia to create a group called “Incomindios,” who raised money in Europe to support the rights of Indigenous people in the Americas. He resigned in 1979, citing frustrations with its leadership and a desire to spend more time making art.

On Thursday morning, winter alerts were up for 2 million people across the Northern Plains and Upper Midwest, which included the first blizzard warnings of the season. The blizzard warnings, in particular, were for parts of northeastern South Dakota and extreme western Minnesota. While this region is part of "blizzard alley," it's early for the season's first blizzard. November blizzard warnings are actually quite rare. The last time one was issued for this part of South Dakota was five years ago in November of 2016.

President Joe Biden, a Democrat, said last Thursday he will enforce the mandate starting Jan. 4. The lawsuit said the federal mandate intruded on states' police power and is unlawful under the Administrative Procedures Act because there was no comment period before its release. An interim final rule is effective immediately without the standard comment period that follows publication. There is a 60-day comment period following its publication, however. Providers that fail to comply with the mandate could lose access to Medicare and Medicaid funds.

— South Dakota’s House launched an investigation Tuesday into whether the state’s attorney general should be impeached for his conduct surrounding a car crash last year that killed a pedestrian. A sizable majority of the Republican-dominated House voted to have a committee prepare a report and recommend whether Attorney General Jason Ravnsborg should be impeached. It could take weeks for the committee of seven Republicans and two Democrats to delve into the crash investigation. The state constitution stipulates that officials like the attorney general can be impeached for “corrupt conduct, malfeasance or misdemeanor in office.” But a state official has never been impeached in South Dakota. Republican Rep. Will Mortenson, who first called for Ravnsborg’s impeachment in February, pushed to allow public access to the material the committee reviews.

Where Inflation Is Highest in U.S.
  + stars: | 2021-11-10 | by ( Danny Dougherty | Gwynn Guilford | ) www.wsj.com   time to read: 1 min
U.S. inflation rose at the fastest pace in three decades in October, with prices increasing more in some parts of the country than in others. Consumer prices were up 7.3% last month in the region that encompasses Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota and South Dakota. Mid-Atlantic states, however, saw prices rise less, by 5.4% from a year ago. Midwesterners saw relatively higher housing costs in October, with rent, natural gas and home furnishings all rising at a brisker clip than in other regions. Rental prices in Northeastern states, by contrast, grew at a much slower pace than elsewhere last month.

At least 26 states on Friday filed or joined lawsuits opposing President Joe Biden's vaccine mandate. Twenty-six states cosigned four petitions, amounting to perhaps the most sweeping legal challenge to pandemic-era safety requirements since Biden took office. Biden's mandate, which would affect about two of every three private-sector workers, was officially rolled out on Thursday. The lawsuits argue that the federal government doesn't have the constitutional authority to put a vaccine mandate in place. The White House on Friday pushed back against that characterization, saying it wanted to be "crystal clear" that the requirement was a workplace-safety measure, not a vaccine mandate.

A group of lawmakers is asking Biden to revoke Medals of Honor given to soldiers from Wounded Knee. Hundred of unarmed Lakota people were killed during the Wounded Knee Massacre in December 1890. The effort, led by Sen. Elizabeth Warren, includes 16 Democrats and Sen. Bernie Sanders, an independent. The Wounded Knee Massacre occurred on December 29, 1890, when US forces surrounded a group of Lakota people near Wounded Knee Creek on the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota. In the massacre that followed, hundreds of unarmed Lakota people were killed, with nearly half being women and children.
