The choices of both Buus and new wrestling coach Gordon Bye were approved at the evening meeting.
Buus replaces T.J. Hay, whose resignation was formally accepted at the June 7 board meeting. Hay was 111-169 at Stevens over 12 seasons and reached the Class AA state tournament four times (2002, ’03, ’06 and ’07).
NO FIREWORKS… Game, Fish and Parks Department officials ask you to please leave fireworks at home if you’re spending the Fourth at a state park.
State parks director Doug Hofer says campgrounds are traditionally very busy with campers and other visitors enjoying the parks during the Independence Day period. He says fireworks and large crowds can create a dangerous situation.
Discharging fireworks is prohibited on all lands owned or leased by the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks. The ban includes state parks, recreation areas, lakeside use areas, game production areas and nature areas. Discharging fireworks is also illegal within the boundaries of the Black Hills Forest Fire Protection District, national forests and national parks in South Dakota.
