RAPID CITY, S.D. (AP) - Officials say no one has been reported injured after a small plane crashed into the side of a hill a few miles east of the Rapid City Regional Airport.

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - Governor Dennis Daugaard says the state wants more information from the federal government on unaccompanied immigrant children placed in South Dakota.

PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A longtime official with South Dakota's Agriculture Department has been named state forester.
