South Sioux wants new TIF district to build sewer plant

South Sioux City, Nebraska is trying to create a tax increment financing district near Roth Industrial Park.  Officials say TIF money would help build a sewer treatment plant that could spur development in the area and the TIF would freeze the district's property tax values for up to 14 years, then send any new property tax revenue to projects like the plant, but Dakota County is worried that would take away tax dollars from the county.

Street extension opens on Sioux City's northside


It's open and ready for drivers.  Glen Oaks Boulevard now connects Chambers Street instead of having drivers turn onto 31st to connect the streets.  The project started 5 years ago, and the city had to purchase several homes before work could begin.  The project also extended sidewalks on both sides of Glen Oaks Boulevard along with the addition of water detention ponds and a new water main.

150 years ago, 38 men were killed in what's called the largest mass execution in US history


The remains of a Winnebago tribal member killed after the uprising in 1862 will be returned to Nebraska more than a century after his death.  The Native American man was one of many forced out of Minnesota and into South Dakota after the Sioux uprising.  His body was found near Fort Randall, South Dakota.  The man's remains eventually went to the Smithsonian Institute's Museum of Natural History, but federal law requires the museum to turn over the remains.  The tribe has set aside space for his remains in the Winnebago village cemetery.
