The U.S. government wants to seize the assets of Russian political and business leaders. The move comes in response to the military invasion of Ukraine. South Dakota’s growing trust industry has laws designed to protect the identity and wealth held by its clients. State leaders support the integrity of the industry. However, a new round of attention on Russia’s financial elite continues to raise questions. SDPB’s Lee Strubinger reports.

The 50th anniversary of the 1972 Black Hills Flood is June 9th. It’s a time to honor the 238 lives lost, and it also brings a flood of memories for survivors. Every week between now and the anniversary, SDPB’s Seth Tupper brings us a survivor’s story, in their own words. This week, we hear from Dave Baumberger. He was near Rapid Creek in western Rapid City when the flood surge hit, and he took shelter in a home with eight other people. Only two of them, including Dave, survived. When the house broke apart, floodwater carried Dave into Canyon Lake. Then the dam ruptured, and he was swept a couple of miles downstream. He tells this story from the site where it happened alongside Rapid Creek.
Hemp is newly legal in South Dakota, and demand is growing. The non-intoxicating cousin of marijuana is useful in human food, fiber and other products. Hemp processing also creates a byproduct.
