The state Public Utilities Commission continues to hash out procedures leading up to a hearing this summer. The Keystone XL pipeline is on the docket at the end of July for an evidentiary hearing, but commissioners will continue to decide on rules governing the proceedings up until then.

Grete Bodøgaard moved from Norway to South Dakota in 1969 and has created and taught textile art. She has also built a cadre of loyal friends. Now Bodøgaard is in hospice care in Rapid City, and some of her friends pulled together a retrospective in celebration of her works for a show at the Dahl Arts Center.
As Bodøgaard’s son and husband tell SDPB’s Victoria Wicks, these friendships, as well as her art, are her legacy.
