2018 is gearing up to be the Year of Women in United States politics. Record numbers of women are running for public office in national, state, and local races. Their zeal is credited, in part, to the women's marches held globally after the 2016 election of Donald Trump and the Me Too movement that has examined sexual harassment and sex discrimination under a bright light.

Ground was broken Thursday for the First Nations Sculpture Garden planned for Halley Park in Rapid City. In the works for almost two years, the garden will hold busts of four 20th Century Plains Indian leaders and have space for four more. SDPB’s Victoria Wicks has followed the sculpture garden’s progress.
