Club Stories
Adult literacy can change everything. Health. Gender equality. Poverty. Every important social issue is impacted by low literacy. When individuals learn how to read, write, do basic math, and use computers, they have the power to lift themselves out of poverty, lower health care costs, find and keep sustainable employment, and ultimately change their lives.
Reach Literacy Center provides individual, group, and workplace literacy tutoring.  The Center is funded entirely through grants, United Way, events, donations, and special events.  There is no cost for the tutoring.  The philosophy of the organization is "Learn to Read.  Read to Learn."
On September 4th, 2009, Marty J. Jackley was sworn in as the 30th Attorney General for South Dakota. He serves as the chief law enforcement officer and legal adviser for the State.

As Attorney General, Mr. Jackley has a proven record of leading an office that protects families and is committed to crime prevention. South Dakota's Internet Crimes Against Children Task Force proactively protects children from sexual predators, while South Dakota's Child Abduction Response Team has received national certification for its ability to respond to a missing child emergency.
He has worked with the Legislature to strengthen human trafficking laws and the sex offender registry, and to develop a prescription drug monitoring program that emphasizes prevention over prosecution. South Dakota's 24/7 Alcohol Sobriety and Monitoring Program has been extended across South Dakota and the nation. The sobriety program has reduced the likelihood for subsequent alcohol offenses and requires the offenders to pay all the program costs.
Rock Garden Tour Radio show has been on the air in one format or another since the spring of 2000.
While other shows tell stories that seem too good to be true, Rock Garden Tour shares the kinds of stories that are too bad to be false. It is considered by some to be the most interesting show of its kind in South Dakota. It almost certainly features the most original songs about Murdo.
Higher education has long been viewed as a gateway to opportunity and the necessary path to greater quality of life. However, Dr. Bradfield believes that changes in the enterprise and societal expectations have called into question the relative value, or lack thereof, of a college degree, especially in consideration of its return of investment. As college costs escalate and more concerns emerge regarding suffocating loan debt for students, higher education is called to demonstrate its value proposition. Higher education should be viewed as a major player in serving the greater good of societal needs and be a major contributor to workforce development that drives the national and local economy.
