Visitors to Presho will soon be greeted by lights from I-90 exit 225 west through town to exit 226.

Logan Electric of Gettysburg was awarded the contract. Work started on the $ 125,327 South Dakota Department of Transportation project last week.

Logan Electric will complete all phases of the project from the concrete work to setting of the poles. Crews started digging holes for the concrete bases Thursday, August 18th. Thirty-one 40 foot galvanized steel poles will be installed along the highway through town. According to contractor Kevin Logan the majority of the work will be done within the next 3 to 4 weeks. The poles are expected to arrive sometime after October 1st. The expected completion date of the project is October 31st.

The city of Presho will cover about 18% of the cost, which could run around $ 20,000. Once the project is completed ownership and maintenance of the lighting system will be turned over the city of Presho.

A lighted road through Presho will be a great addition to our community. Its a progressive step towards inviting travelers to stop in Presho, said Neal Brakke of New Frontier Station.

Ownership of Presho Flowers changed hands Tuesday, August 16th, when Karen Willis of Presho bought the business from Sarah Ambur. It will continue doing business as Presho Flowers.

I plan to continue delivering the same quality service the flower shop has provided in the past, said Willis. She will continue to carry the same type of items; fresh flowers, silks, gift items, candles, and plants, along with a few new additions.

Karen will operate the shop herself, with the exception of hiring extra help during the busy times. The flower shop will be open from 9:00 AM to 5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.

The idea of owning the flower shop was not new to Karen, I had thought about buying it when if came up for sale in 2003, but I wasnt ready. For the last year and a half, Karen has worked at the Kennebec Elevator as a bookkeeper. I really enjoy doing crafts so buying the flower shop seemed like a good fit, said Willis.
Willis says she is looking forward to the Thanksgiving and Christmas holidays and the Christmas Main Street Open House. She plans to become a member of the Presho Area Chamber. Willis will host an open house at a later date.

The flower shop was previously owned by Sarah Ambur, who decided to sell the business in order to spend more time at home with her son Rane. Sarah purchased the business in 2003.
