Foresters monitoring the success of the campaign against the beetle tested trees cut in several Black Hills counties and found a wide range in the percentage of infested trees in their sample areas.

    The Capital Journal is continuing to look at the role that tax dollars played in both Meade and Lawrence counties. I am unaware of any other type of investigation.
