Dr. Jerome Freeman is a practicing neurologist and chair of the Department of Neurosciences at Sanford School of Medicine. Dr. Freeman believes medicine is rich in science and technology, but all too often its marvelous powers are accompanied by a clinician's calm detachment rather than the soft touch of human kindness. Dr. Freeman's book "Bringing Kindness to medicine: Stories from the Prairie" illustrates the power and importance of kindness through real-life stories from his years practicing medicine in South Dakota.

  

  

A series of events Wednesday morning led the Sioux Falls Area Drug Task Force and the Sioux Falls Police Department to seize about 9 pounds of methamphetamine and over $94,000 cash. A woman rented a hotel room in southwest Sioux Falls and upon checkout, forgot a large amount of cash under the mattress. Employees were suspicious of her story to re-enter the room and called police. Chief Doug Barthel says the amount of drugs seized equals about a half of a million dollars on the street.
