Woodland Cabinetry celebrates 20 years, plans expansion in 2015

Courier Staff Writer
Sisseton’s largest employer, Woodland Cabinetry, recently celebrated its 20th anniversary along with its 220 employees. The anniversary was celebrated with a free meal, plant tours and an open house for the public.
It all started in 1994 with a very small staff and very large dreams. In 1994, the business began as Heartland Cabinets under the operation of President Tim Davenport. Tim was killed unexpectedly in an airplane crash in 2003. At that time, Tom Satrang took over the position of President, backed with his 25 years of working manufacturing experience. For the rest of this story please buy a copy of this weeks Sisseton Courier on news stands now.

Tragedy in Sisseton
SITE OF SISSETON TRAGEDY--What started out as a massive manhunt for an armed and dangerous shooter has now been ruled a massive murder-suicide. The unimaginable happened early Saturday morning, Nov. 22 when the authorities were notified of a shooting in Sisseton that left three people dead when a gunman, Colter Arbach, opened fire wounding one, killing the three and then killing himself. The three victims were Angela Adams, Vernon Renville Jr. and Candace LaBelle, all of Sisseton. A fourth victim, Karissa Dog Eagle, also of Sisseton, is in stable condition at a Fargo hospital. The Sisseton Police Dept., Sisseton Wahpeton Tribal Police, Roberts County Sheriff’s Office, South Dakota Highway Patrol, South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks, and the Division of Criminal Investigations all assisted in the investigation on this case. There was a candlelight prayer vigil held for the victims on Saturday night at St. Catherine’s Church. ~ Courier Photo
