Whether it was fishing with my dad, bow hunting with my daughters, or shooting birds with Booker, being under the South Dakota sky clears my head. I know many of you feel the same way. It’s part of our South Dakota way of life. Whether or not you take part in the sport, pheasant season is a major economic engine for South Dakota and a significant contributor to tourism, our second largest industry. Each year, 91,000 non-resident hunters flock to our state for hunting season and spend more than $310 million in our restaurants, gear shops, hotels, gift shops, and gas stations. That money makes a real difference for families and small businesses. If we’re committed to this heritage and want to preserve our outdoor culture, we need to proactively protect habitat. In recent years, pheasant numbers have dropped and habitat lands have diminished largely because of fewer CRP acres. Predators are impacting our bird populations as well. Having recently celebrated 100 years of pheasant hunting in South Dakota, we must now be intentional about sustaining our wildlands and grasslands to ensure the second century of pheasant hunting is just as successful as the first. At the beginning of this year, I launched my Second Century Initiative – a strategy to increase resources for habitat management. As part of this plan, I proposed a $1 million state investment to expand habitat and pheasant hunting opportunities. In March, the legislature approved this bill, and I was proud to sign it into law. These dollars, along with additional funds from private donations and federal conservation programs, will help establish some real momentum in habitat advancement. And we’re already moving forward, putting practical ideas into action. On April 1, we launched the nest predator bounty program that will focus on increasing trapping. Although this is a new program, trapping predators during nesting season has been practiced in South Dakota for decades. I’m excited to implement this plan to get our kids outside – away from the x-box and into the live box. This program will be extremely beneficial in enhancing duck and pheasant nest success. What’s more, my newly expanded Hunt for Habitat program taps into how we can help raise money to fund habitat efforts across South Dakota. This program will include an auction tag and raffle licenses. Right now, we’re looking at the possibility of expanding the area where the current bighorn sheep auction license is valid. Kramer to Retire as Board of Regents System Vice President of Finance and Administration PIERRE, S.D. – Monte Kramer, system vice president of finance and administration, will retire from the system office of the Board of Regents this fall. The search has begun for his successor. “Dr. Kramer’s commitment to public higher education in South Dakota has been remarkable. His expertise and knowledge of the university system has been an outstanding resource and guide,” said Regents Executive Director Dr. Paul Beran. Kramer has spent a combined 36 years serving the state of South Dakota. He began his service with the departments of Health and Social Services in 1983. In 1985 he joined the Board of Regents as a budget analyst and in 1987 he became the system’s assistant director of budget and finance. In 1994 he left the system office to serve as a comptroller at the University of South Dakota. During his time at USD he earned his master of business administration degree. Kramer returned to the regents’ staff in 2000 and assumed his current role as the system vice president of finance and administration. In 2011, Kramer earned his doctorate in educational administration, also from USD. “I have a deep appreciation of the state’s public university system and have a sense of pride for my role in strengthening higher education in South Dakota. During my career I was presented with numerous opportunities and was confronted with many unique challenges. I feel fortunate to have worked with an excellent staff and knowledgeable colleagues as we created solutions that addressed the goals and priorities of the system,” said Kramer. Kramer’s retirement from the regents will be official September 27, 2019. An extensive search for the new system vice president of finance and administration is currently underway. Severe Weather Awareness Week April 22-26 PIERRE, S.D. – There is still snow on the ground, but South Dakota officials say the time is now to start preparing for this summer’s eventual severe weather. Next week, April 22-26, has been designated as Severe Weather Awareness Week in South Dakota. Tina Titze, director of the South Dakota Office of Emergency Management, says this is a good time to start thinking about what to do when severe thunderstorms or tornadoes impact the state. “In just the last few weeks, we have seen the impact winter storms can have; spring and summer weather is no different,” she says. “Severe weather will eventually occur, and everyone needs to be prepared.” The week is used by state and local officials to urge people to start making preparations. Titze says it is too late to prepare when the thunderstorm or tornado is already impacting your area. “Now is the time when families should discuss what to do if severe weather happens,” she says. “Where do you go if you are outside when a thunderstorm begins or what do you do if a tornado warning is issued? Those are important things to be ready for.” A statewide tornado drill will be held Wednesday, April 24. The test watch is scheduled for 10 a.m. CDT (9 a.m. MDT) with the warning issued at 10:15 a.m. CDT (9:15 a.m. MDT). In most communities on Wednesday, severe weather sirens will be sounded. People are reminded that it is only a test unless otherwise announced. For more information on how to be ready for severe weather, click onto www.bready. sd.gov. The Office of Emergency Management is part of the South Dakota Department of Public Safety. BULL SALES If you read this you know... advertising pays!
