Rosebud Tribal Chairman Removed

RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - The Rosebud Sioux Tribal Council has removed President Cyril "Whitey" Scott from office.

The Rapid City Journal reports that the council made the move Tuesday, resolving a period of uncertain leadership that afflicted the south-central South Dakota tribe for much of Scott's time in office.

A telephone listing for Scott could not be found.

Scott won election in 2012 but was suspended in 2013 and had been entangled in various ethics-related proceedings since then. The council not only removed him from the presidency but also banned him from running for any tribal office in the future.

Tribal Vice President Willie Kindle will serve as acting president until a new president is elected in September.


Name the Golf Course Contest

The contest to name the new Valentine Community Golf Course remains open until further notice. Suggested names and logos can be submitted to Mike Burge at the studios of KVSH radio or at city hall. $200 in Valentine Chamber Bucks will go to the person who submits the winning name and logo. The golf course board will choose the winner and the information will become the property of the golf board and the city of Valentine. Either the name, logo, or both may be selected from the entries received. There is no deadline for the contest at this time.
