The Parade was one of the best ever

Back in the old days of the boarding schools the boys used to have a saying during World War II. It went, “Hitler got hungry for Turkey, slipped in Greece and Yugoslaviad all over.” The kids at the boarding school thought it was funny.

The Native American Day Parade was bigger and better than ever. Lakota children were plentiful and they all had their little plastic bags ready for the candy they knew would be tossed to them from the different parade floats. There were also many really imaginative and decorative floats this year.

We owe a debt of thanks to Bruce Long Fox, Amy Sazue and Bobbie Jo Jarvinen for all of the work they put in every year in order to ensure that we will have a parade. This year Tim got to ride in the 1956 Chevrolet convertible owned by Lisa Modrick. Some of the parade viewers shouted, “Nice car.”

This year Native Sun News Today devoted a full page of photos and a story by Richie Richards to the parade. It is the least we can do.

This week has been one of those weeks when too many employees got sick or just plain took off from work so that the office has been pretty quiet. Our sales people have been forced to answer the phones which takes them away from their jobs of selling advertising. But that’s the way it is in any business.

The Oyate Today Television Show got a boost when it website page. www.Oyatetoday.org is the new site if you want to find out about what is happening on the show and who the guest will be. The page was organized by Kelsey Stine, a former Native Sun News Today graphics artist.

The early October snow storm made it tough for Jimmy Giago Davies in trying to cover scheduled football games. Some of the games were canceled because of the weather and had to be re-scheduled which broke up his plans to cover the games. It is usually a long drive to cover the reservation games so when they are canceled new plans have to be drawn up.

Everyone should be careful about what they put on their Facebook page because you never know who is reading the page. Richie Richards got thumped by an irate lady who didn’t like what she saw on his page. We had one lady working for us and we got her enrolled in a one-month journalism class at the University of Nevada only to have one of the faculty at the school look at her Facebook page. He was very unhappy with what he saw so he had the school opportunity canceled for the young lady. Too bad.

The Black Hills Powwow was one of the greatest. It is growing year after year and when the new arena is finished next year Steve Yellow Hawk hopes to make it into the largest powwow in America. We are pulling for him and the powwow committee. Doksa ake’.
