On the isolated prairie 24 miles northwest of Miller lies the town of Polo. It’s a small residential community notable for its distinctive landmark, the Saint Liborius Church and School, a block-long Spanish Mission-style complex that is largely empty and crumbling.
Most of the structure could soon be torn down, leaving only the church and rectory standing. The parishioners have asked the Bishop of the Diocese for permission to raze the old building and build a new Parish Hall.

Two Sioux Falls women have self-published an illustrated book titled Native American Master Artist: Oscar Howe. Co-author Lois Sayre says the book has been given to fourth-grade classes in Sioux Falls and Rapid City. The authors are marketing the book online and at various tourist spots and gift shops in South Dakota. SDPB’s Victoria Wicks spoke with Sayre this weekend at the opening of the Oscar Howe exhibit at the Journey Museum in Rapid City.

Artist Oscar Howe has had a marked influence on American Indian artists who learned from his style. Whether Howe himself was influenced by other artists is up for discussion. Viewers can ponder that question for themselves at the Journey Museum in Rapid City, where Howe’s work is on display through September 7th. Regardless of what inspired his work, SDPB’s Victoria Wicks learns that Howe broke ground in ways that continue to benefit other artists today.

A Rapid City man convicted in September 2013 of attempting to abort his girlfriend’s fetus has appealed his conviction for attempted fetal homicide. Oral arguments were heard Wednesday before the South Dakota Supreme Court. Alfredo Vargas claims the evidence was insufficient for a conviction and his rights were violated when jurors heard a secretly recorded phone conversation between him and his wife.
