The extended application process started in October of 2014 with a letter of intent that was submitted. Alexis was notified in January that she was chosen as a finalist, in late February she was turning in her five page proposal, and just one month later she was notified by phone that she was going to Italy!

Grass Fires - Above, the Sisseton Volunteer Fire Department extinguishes a grass fire southwest of Sisseton on Tuesday, April 14, which was sparked by a disk striking a rock. Another grass fire near Sica Hollow on Wednesday, April 15, was caused by dry grass on a mower deck, and a third fire just north of the Sisseton Housing on Thursday evening, April 16, was of unknown cause. The Sisseton Volunteer Fire Department safely extinguished all three fires, but they serve as a reminder of the fire danger in the area. Roberts County remains under a burn ban. ~ Courier Photo
