Environmental concerns kept Fourth of July fireworks away from Mount Rushmore for the past 11 years, but now they’re coming back, because a governor talked to a president. 

President Donald Trump made that clear Jan. 15 while signing a trade deal with China. A crowd of dignitaries was on hand, and Trump took time to recognize some of them. 

Congressman Dusty Johnson has a potential challenger from his own party, and he’s decided to meet that challenge where it arose: West River.  

Johnson, a first-term Republican, is from Mitchell. But he launched his re-election campaign Wednesday exclusively in Rapid City and also said he’s putting his campaign headquarters there.

U.S. Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., avoided criticizing or defending President Trump on Thursday when Thune fielded questions about impeachment during a visit to Rapid City.

“I think you can argue about whether or not the judgment the president exercised was appropriate,” Thune said, “but it’s pretty hard in my view to see a case where you would argue that this would be an impeachable offense. I don’t think it reaches that level based on what I’ve seen so far.”
