Each week, Joe Kafka, from the Governor's staff, sends out a media release announcing events which state agencies will be involved in for the next week.

This week's announcement is about four pages long, and includes information about speeches Gov. Daugaard and Chief Justice of the State Supreme Court, David Gilbertson will be making to the legislature.

If you are looking for a job, apply chemicals for Structural Pest Control, or are interested in the workings of the Board of Pardons are Paroles, I included some info, which may be helpful to you:
