April 19th

This Thursday, April 19th, marks the 14th anniversary of the crash of the state airplane which killed Governor George Mickelson and seven others.

On that day, please take a moment to remember them, and all the others who selflessly serve to forward the interest of South Dakota as a whole - be it in government or the business community.

They were each very decent and personable people. Thanks for the reminder, Pat.

Yep, what a very tragic day! It does not feel like it was that long ago. George, Gov. M. was a very, nice, man, as his wife is.
I remember getting the phone call, I just could not believe what I was being told.
Do you all remember the transfer across the state for his final rest.
More memories...

Amen - one of those events that we all remember where we were when we heard it. A great loss for all of us

Thanks for the reminder PP - don't forget our buddies Rolly and Angus and the other fine folks on that plane too.
I think this was the single greatest tragedy in modern South Dakota history. We lost good people doing their best to serve the citizens of South Dakota. I think George Mickelson had even bigger and better things ahead of him in service to the state and nation. A terrible, terrible loss that has had a huge impact on our state.
