Work is progressing with water main and utility upgrades on the Highway 18 project in Winner.
At the bi-weekly construction meeting on June 13, Brad Norrid of the Winner Department of Transportation office reported tentative plans are to have all the water main installed by the end of the week.
Norrid noted the contractor has been doing a good job, even working some nights, to minimize the impact on motorists.
Starting June 20 concrete paving started from South County Road to just before Taft St. During this paving process there will be no access to any of the businesses on the north side from the highway. This will allow for a continuous paving and a better road surface in the end. Persons may use First Street to access businesses.
Norrid explained Reede Construction has contacted all the businesses in this area where the concrete will be poured.
“The continuous pour will eliminate blockouts, which is a gap in paving. This saves time and makes the project go faster,” said Norrid.
A couple of times during the public meeting, Norrid asked for the public to have patience and drive carefully through the construction zone.
He also asked the motorists to obey the speed limit because this area is very congested.
Next week the DOT and Reede Construction will start having weekly meetings on Tuesdays at 11 a.m.

The Summer Rec program is in its second week and the kids are keeping active and having fun.
The program started June 5 this summer and is Monday-Friday from 9 am to noon. The activities and games start at nine with a break halfway through and then they start up again after the break.
They start the day off playing games on the tennis courts with a game going on each side of the nets. These games are challenging giving the kids a sense of competition while being around their friends.
During the break the concession stand opens for the kids to get a snack and or drink and catch their breath. The break allows for the kids to rest and get some fuel in their body, so they are ready for the second half of the program.
After break they will return to playing but this time in the outfield of McDonald’s Park. They will finish playing in the field until it ends at noon.
Once the program is over, they are able to go right over to the pool and even walk over to the school to get lunch.
There are 85 kids signed up this year which is around the average number since Covid. The ages of the kids range from kindergarten to 8th grade.
Jaime Keiser runs the program and has been since she started in 2010. The Winner High School volleyball team helps with summer rec.
The goal of the program is to keep the kids active and socializing with their friends. Another goal is to teach them how to problem solve and resolve arguments in the safest way they can.
The program will run throughout the summer until July 14th.

Shirley Daughters, 78, of Winner, SD passed away on Tuesday, June 13, 2023 at the Winner Regional Nursing Home in Winner, SD.
Memorial service was held on Monday, June 19, 2023 at 10 a.m. at the Ideal Presbyterian Church in Ideal, SD. Burial followed in the Winner City Cemetery.
With heavy hearts, we announce the passing of Shirley Marlene (Habeger) Daughters, a cherished soul who graced our lives with her immense love for her family, zest for life, and passion for the outdoors and art. Shirley peacefully departed this world on June 13, 2023, leaving a legacy of cherished memories.
Born on July 29, 1944, to Milton and Margaret Habeger in Denver, Color., Shirley embarked on a remarkable journey embracing life with unwavering enthusiasm and kindness. She lived a life that exemplified love, compassion, and dedication to family. She moved to Ideal, South Dakota, in 1950 and on Aug. 19, 1962, Shirley joined in matrimony with Robert Daughters, creating a bond that would withstand the test of time. Together, they raised their two sons, Wade and Bruce, on their farm in Hamill, SD. As a family, they enjoyed farming, hunting, and camping together. Shirley especially loved herding and caring for the sheep on the farm and spending her free time as a family fishing.
In her later years, Shirley discovered a rare gift for capturing the essence of her experiences on canvas. Art was the language Shirley used to express her vibrant spirit. Her brushstrokes danced with vivid colors, breathing life into breathtaking scenes around her. Her artwork not only adorned the walls of her home and the homes of her family, but they also served as a testament to her ability to convey the awe and wonder she felt from the landscapes around her and her deep love for her family.
The family was the cornerstone of Shirley’s life and her love and devotion knew no bounds. As a wife, mother, and grandmother, she stood as a pillar of strength and support, her unwavering love providing a safe harbor in times of joy and sorrow. Shirley was a constant source of love, support, and guidance throughout the lives of her children and grandchildren. Her family was her greatest source of pride and joy, and she cherished every moment spent with them.
As we bid farewell to this extraordinary woman, we find solace in knowing that her legacy lives on in the hearts of all who were fortunate to know her. Though her physical presence may be gone, her love for the outdoors, camping, art, family, and farm life will forever inspire us to embrace the wonders around us. Shirley will be greatly missed by her loving spouse Bob, her children Wade (Linda) Daughters and Bruce (Amanda) Daughters, grandchildren Seth (Danielle) Daughters, Dalton (Taylor) Daughters, Jordan (Amber) Daughters, Ashley (Matt) Weisser, Haley (Hunter) Wood, and seven great-grandchildren Braylee, Jones, Lincoln, Piper, Carson, Hazel, and Heston. Sister Beulah Dewes, Rapid City SD.
Shirley was preceded in death by her parents, Milton and Margaret Habeger, brothers, Larry Habeger, Royce Habeger, Nephew Bradley Dewes.
Shirley’s legacy will forever be etched in our minds, and your love will continue to guide us through life’s journey. May you find eternal peace beneath the starlit sky you adored and in the fertile soil of everlasting tranquility.
