MITCHELL, S.D.—With a nearly $20 million cleanup plan currently on the table, it's no secret that Lake Mitchell's algae growth has gotten severe enough to keep the lake from being recreation-friendly. But although the proposed plan is one of the first of its kind in the area, Lake Mitchell is not an outlier in terms of usability. It may receive more attention than many South Dakota lakes, but it's far from the only lake to have issues with water quality — statistically, it's actually more unusual for a South Dakota lake to not have any water impairments.
DIMOCK, S.D.—After making and selling its products in the same location for 87 years, Dimock Cheese is breaking ground on a new facility Thursday, July 26. "It's the first and oldest handmade, artisan cheese-making company in South Dakota, and we're excited to have the opportunity to take and expand that brand," said Denny Everson, one of the company's co-owners, who added that this expansion is "way bigger" than anything Dimock Cheese has done before.
