A licensing policy is now in place for homes deemed "vacation rentals" in Pennington County. As homes are taken off the market by such rentals, officials say regulations like these could open more homes to full-time residents.

The state Department of Health has introduced the new guidelines for the Women, Infants, and Children (WIC) nutrition program. The program is provided at no cost to eligible families to aid with grocery bills for nutritious foods.
