Opinion: Can’t imagine life without Capitol
Published 06/16/2010, Republic columnist
My first visit to the South Dakota Capitol building in Pierre is memorable for a chance meeting with Gov. Sigurd Anderson.
In truth, I have only a vague memory of the incident. I was 7 or 8 at the time and in the capital city because my cousin Leo invited me along when his folks made the trip to take in a summer rodeo in Fort Pierre. We had a picnic in the park — Griffin Park, I assume — and we visited the Capitol building briefly before heading to the rodeo arena across the river.
