TRI VIEW AVENUE WILL BE WIDENED ALSO. CITY OWNED PROPERTY WILL BE CEDED IN A MUTUAL BENEFITS AGREEMENT WITH THE STATE
MONDAY THE CITY COUNCIL WILL START THE PROCESS OF GRANTING EASEMENTS IN THE AFFECTED AREAS TO PROVIDE FOR THE HIGHWAY EXPANSION.
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.

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.
