SDIBA Holds Policy Meeting in Pierre-Hears from Some U.S.
Senate Candidates and State Lawmakers
Republican Annette Bosworth says pouring financial resources into economic development programs is not the complete answer.
Fellow Republican Stace Nelson agrees-saying development on reservations must come from within.
Stacey LaCompte, SDIBA Secretary/Treasurer said the alliance would like to see an expansion of Native American Community Development Financial Institutions (CDFI's) on reservations across the state.
LaCompte said Friday's policy meeting helps prioritize the policies that will have an impact on legislation in Indian Country.
The roundtable discussion explored solutions to challenges in the use
of specific state and federal programs and identified policies to
support economic development in Indian Country.

SIOUX FALLS, S.D. (AP) - A national group that fights gun violence says
South Dakota is one of the worst states in terms of sharing mental health
records for use in background checks. The Argus Leader reports Mayors
Against Illegal Guns issued a report this month that said South Dakota has
shared only one mental health record in 20 years with the federal
government's National Instant Criminal Background Check System. The
background database was created to enable gun dealers to check buyers for
firearms restrictions - a requirement since the passage of the Brady Bill in
1993. States are expected to submit records on people with a mental illness
that would disqualify them from owning a gun. Mayors Against Illegal Guns
says many states are failing to help keep the database up to date.
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Police say a lone gunman opened fire on a Minneapolis
restaurant, killing one person and injuring three others. The shooting
happened early this morning at the La Que Buena restaurant. Authorities say
the suspect is still at large.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The second-ranking Republican in the House
isn't counting on Iran to live up to the nuclear deal that was
announced over the weekend. Eric Cantor tells CBS that it's a
"dangerous" arrangement that brings Iran "closer to becoming a
nuclear power." He says the approach to Iran should be "mistrust but
verify" -- a twist on Ronald Reagan's famous "trust but verify"
standard for arms control deals with the Soviet Union.
ISLAMABAD (AP) - Pakistan is deploying drones of its own. The
country's military today put its first fleet of domestically
developed drones into operation. This, as police cracked down on a
protest by demonstrators angry at the U.S. for using similar
aircraft to attack Islamic militants there.
WASHINGTON (AP) - The number of Americans who signed contracts to
buy homes fell in October for the fifth straight month. Higher
mortgage rates, price increases and the 16-day partial government
shutdown held back sales. The National Association of Realtors says
its seasonally adjusted pending home sales index dipped 0.6 percent
to 102.1. That's the lowest level since December. September's
reading was revised slightly higher to 102.7. There is
generally a one- to two-month lag between a signed contract and a
completed sale. The drop suggests final sales will remain weak in
the coming months.

RAPID CITY, S.D. – Rapid City will host its second Amateur Softball
Association men’s tournament in four years when the Men’s E Northern
Territory championship comes to town in 2015. The Rapid City Convention
& Visitors Bureau announced Friday that the tournament will be held in
September 2015, with as many as 65 teams in town. Rapid City hosted an
ASA Northern Territory championship for the highest level (C) of men’s
softball in 2012. Rodriguez said approximately 28 teams played in that
tournament. More local and area teams are at the E level which should
mean more teams playing in the 2015 tournament. Mandan, North Dakota
will host the 2014 Men’s E championships on Aug. 29 thru the 31st next
year. The 2013 tournament, won by a team from Macungie, Pa, was held in
St. Joseph, Mo.
