Moody wins first at NFR gas over the weekend. Moody finished seventh in the 10th and final go-round Saturday, but en- tered the last round with the advantage of a lead of half a second. By avoiding any penalty she cinched the title. Moody did rock the final barrel but it didn't fall and she finished in 13.99 seconds. It gave her 140.11 seconds for the total time, which beat the 140.42 seconds held by Megan Reichert. • The first place title over all won her $42,998.80. Total for the 10 rounds and 10 days amounted to $104,i 16.59. World rank increases to second Local cowgirl, Jill Moody of Letcher brought home first place honors in barrel racing at the National Finals Rodeo at Las Ve- MOODY Total winnings for the year amount to $218,880.81 which is a big jump over last year's $169,000. It's been her best year yet and her second time at NFR. Her winnings moved her to sec- ond in the world, behind Lindsey Sears. "Lindsey has a phenomenal horse. You can't hardly outrun her. To be second to her says something in its own right;' Moody said. Not knocking over any of the 30 barrels all week gave her the extra chance she needed to beat Reichert, the only other racers to do the same. Moody commented on her horse Dolly, "I'm tickled to death with her." Moody's winnings at NFR put her in the top five-barrel rac- ing totals of all time. Swimming has Michael Phelps, barrel racing and Sanborn County has Jill Moody!

KSFY-TV no longer free to rural cable customers KSFY television started run- owners are looking to charge ning on-screen crawls Dec. 5 South Dakotans in these rural saying rural South Dakotamarkets a quarter of a million communities will lose their dollars to receive the formerly ABC affiliate programming if free signal. they are customers of certain "We're not opposed to pay- small-town companies. Historically broadcast sta- tions have offered their sig- nals for free, until the federal ~overnment pushed them to igital delivery by February 2009. In exchange for the dig- ital investment, the govern- ment now allows broadcast- ers to charge cable companies and their customers for deliv- ery of the signal. While most South Dakota stations have negotiated faifl), rural telephone companies that also offer cable television ser- vices say KSFY's Texas owner- ship, Hoak Media Corporation, hasn't been reasonable. "While KSFY has only a quarter of the viewers in the market, its parent company demands that customers pay more than all other area broadcasters combined" says Ryan Thompson, General Manager of Santel Communi- cations in Woonsocket, '~nd in Rapid City, the dominant, locally-owned television sta- tion isn't charging anything for the signal delivery because they want to make sure their signal gets delivered to local viewers." Thompson says KSFY'S management claims the costs are pennies a day, but when he adds up the charge per ing a fair price" Thompson says. "We recognize KSFY has costs involved in the digital transitions but its demands are beyond reasonable, es- pecially for South Dakota. They're the highest in South Dakota and even higher than some national cable stations, ultimately those costs get passed on to cable customers. Local cable customers af- fected by KSFY'S dramatic price increase are asked to call l~800-955-KSFY (5739) or 605-336-1300 to relay their concerns and ask the station to negotiate fairly and not dramatically increase their cable costs. ence Joe Vetter and Kyle McLaughlin were recently named to the Mid-Dakota All-Conference 2008 foot- ball team.
