Editorial: Too much missing money at Si Tanka

"It's an ignominious end for [Si Tanka University] the 122-year-old school purchased by the tribe just four years ago.

It also jeopardizes the Eagle Butte campus, open since 1973, because accreditation of the Huron campus was supposed to extend to both. Now, accreditation of the Eagle Butte campus is up in the air.

But the closing of the Huron school shouldn't end efforts to find out what happened. There are too many unanswered questions - and too much missing money."

Editorial: Help for Si Tanka faculty
"At least somebody is looking out for the people affected by the closing of Si Tanka University's Huron campus.

Early on in the crisis, Gov. Mike Rounds instructed the state Labor Department to hold meetings with faculty and staff, so they could learn about options - unemployment insurance, wage-and-hour issues, eligibility for training programs and job-search assistance."
