Featured Facts

The state of South Dakota was granted statehood on November 2, 1889.  Many people are familiar with its most famous landmark, Mount Rushmore.  Who are the four presidents depicted there, and what order are they arranged?  Answers to follow.

Fewer people have probably heard of the Corn Palace in Mitchell.  If one travels on Interstate 90 between Rapid City and Sioux Falls, the journey will go through Mitchell.  The exterior of the building is decorated with native corn, grain, and grasses arranged into large murals.  

The four Presidents found on Mount Rushmore in the following order are George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, and Abraham Lincoln.

Here is the Corn Palace in all of its glory. The theme and murals change annually. The upper portion above the entrance has not been finished when this photo was taken. (courtesy of Pinterest)

Answer to Brain Teaser Question

“D”

Put MUSIC and VIOLIN in a sentence relating the two words.  Music is played on a violin by someone who knows how to play it; just as furniture is created by carpentry tools by a person who knows how to use them.  NOTE:  Anyone can draw with a crayon, and a symphony is not played with a piano, but with an orchestra.
