IT MIGHT BE JANUARY, BUT THE SIOUX CITY FARMER'S MARKET IS ALREADY PREPARING FOR THE UPCOMING SUMMER SEASON.
SPOKESPERSON DEE POLAK SAYS AN ORGANIZATIONAL MEETING FOR POTENTIAL VENDORS WILL BE HELD WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 11TH AT 6PM IN THE DOWNTOWN LIBRARY.
THE FARMER'S MARKET WILL ONCE AGAIN BE LOCATED AT THE PARKING LOT WEST OF THE TYSON EVENTS CENTER ON TRI VIEW AVENUE.
THE FARMER'S MARKET WILL OPEN FOR BUSINESS IN MAY.
A 14-year-old boy accused in the shooting death of his stepbrother in Kingsley may be tried in district court instead of juvenile court.
The boy is charged as a juvenile with involuntary manslaughter and willful injury in the death of 17-year-old Kyle Badgerow on Dec. 9.
The Plymouth County attorney's office has filed a motion to waive jurisdiction for the prosecution of the boy as a youthful offender.
If a judge approves the motion, he would be tried in district court. A hearing is Jan. 20.
Trying a juvenile as a youthful offender would make him eligible for rehabilitation or punishment when he becomes an adult.
SIOUX CITY FIREFIGHTERS HAVE SPENT THE AFTERNOON BATTLING A STUBBORN GRASS FIRE NEAR THE WAR EAGLE MONUMENT.
FIRE DEPARTMENT SPOKESMAN JOE RODRIQUEZ SAYS A SMALL INITIAL FIRE WAS SNUFFED OUT AROUND NOON, BUT A BIGGER ONE STARTED A SHORT TIME LATER:
SEVERAL UNITS WERE DISPATCHED TO WAR EAGLE PARK TO FIGHT THE FIRE.
RODRIQUEZ SAYS THE WAR EAGLE MONUMENT WAS NEVER IN DANGER, BUT DRY CONDITIONS HELPED FUEL THE FIRE AND MADE IT DIFFICULT FOR FIREFIGHTERS TO CONTAIN THE BLAZE.
NO INJURIES HAVE BEEN REPORTED AND THE CAUSE OF THE FIRE IS UNKNOWN.
PART OF LE MARS WAS WITHOUT POWER FOR THE SECOND TIME IN TWO DAYS THIS AFTERNOON.
OUR SISTER STATION KLEM REPORTS THAT A POWER LINE CAME DOWN ON 7TH AVENUE SOUTHEAST, KNOCKING OUT POWER TO THE NEIGHBORHOOD AND IGNITING A GRASS FIRE.
UTILITY CREWS AND FIREFIGHTERS RESPONDED TO THAT INCIDENT IN THE AREA OF THE PLYMOUTH MANOR NURSING HOME.
PLYMOUTH COUNTY FIREFIGHTERS ALSO BATTLED ANOTHER GRASS FIRE IN THE REMSEN AREA THIS AFTERNOON, SPURRED ON BY DRY CONDITIONS AND WIND.
