   Calamity’s Shindig: An Adams Fundraiser


Calamity Jane was said to have been many things, but one thing is for sure - she was always the life of the party. The Adams Museum & House, in Deadwood, is using Calamity Jane’s lively past as the inspiration for a fundraiser this Friday, January 29, at the Charlie Utter Theatre above Saloon No. 10.

The “Calamity’s Shindig” fundraiser, originally scheduled for the Martin & Mason Hotel, has changed locations, but the evening’s program remains the same. The event will feature a benefit auction, delicious food, drinks and live music by Hank Harris, Ricky Jacobsen and Kenny Putnam.

Rose Speirs, Communications Director at the Adams said, “Last year’s fundraiser attracted nearly 100 people and we’re hoping that this year’s event at the Charlie Utter Theatre will be even larger. The historic connection between Calamity Jane and the Utter family makes the Charlie Utter Theatre the perfect place for this great night.”

The auction at the January 29 event will include items from local merchants such as Chubby Chipmunk Hand-Dipped Chocolates, Terry Peak Ski Resort and the new Lodge at Deadwood Gaming Resort. Also on the auction bill are some original photographs and works of art that are truly one of a kind.

All proceeds from Calamity’s Shindig will benefit the Adams Museum & House. Scheduled for 7-10 p.m, this Friday’s event is open to the public and tickets are still available by calling Black Hill Central Reservations at 1-866-601-5103.

   The Bellman Brown Bag Series Will Host Author Michael Trump


The Spearfish Arts Center is pleased to welcome author Michael Trump as the speaker for the Bellman Brown Bag scheduled for January 13th at noon in the Matthews Opera House. Michael will discuss his new book "Raiding Deadwood's Bad Lands".

Michael Trump cultivated his inherent interest in his homeland by obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Arts degree in history. Subsequently, he obtained his Juris Doctorate degree. Mr. Trump owns and operates Trump Law Office and makes his home in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.

Michael’s book, “Raiding Deadwood’s Bad Lands,” explores the details on why Deadwood has been called South Dakota’s playground since the state was founded in 1889. He explores numerous attempts over the years to rid the community of houses of prostitution, gambling halls and saloons. The book also talks about how Deadwood’s economy has always been inextricably tied to the acceptance and promotion of vice. Even when the brothels finally were closed in 1980, it took only nine years for the Deadwood business community to revive legalized gambling in the historic town.

There is no charge to attend the Bellman Brown Bag Series and everyone is welcome.

   Spearfish Arts Center Announces Maxwell Meyer In Concert


The Spearfish Arts Center is pleased to present local pianist, Maxwell Meyer in concert on Saturday, January 9th at 2 pm. Admission is by Free Will Donation and proceeds from this performance will benefit Maxwell Meyer, the Spearfish Arts Center and the Spearfish Gymnastic Academy. Max’s CDs will be available for purchase.

Maxwell Meyer is a 19 year-old jazz musician and composer from Spearfish. Since the age of 8, Max has traveled from coast to coast entertaining audiences and promoting his three original studio albums. In 2005, Max won national television’s “America’s Most Talented Kid” competition in Los Angeles, and has since been honored with a key to the City of Spearfish and a day of recognition of his service in the broader community. Meyer is currently a sophomore at Harvard College in Cambridge, MA where he is majoring in Economics and Chinese.

Max is using his talent to help support the art of gymnastics as well as the Spearfish Arts Center.

“The ancient Greeks believed gymnastics to be the perfect symmetry between mind and body. This symmetry was only possible when physical exercise was coupled with intellectual activity. The term "artistic gymnastics" emerged in the early 1800's to distinguish free-flowing styles from techniques used in military training. Gymnasts often have background training in ballet, dance and strength training. The artistry of gymnastic competition has flourished in the USA and the world since it's birth at the 1896 Olympic games in Athens. It is said that an artist or musician will put his heart and soul into his work. A gymnast's heart and soul drives her body and spirit to accomplish things and express her love for gymnastics in a way that few people will ever truly comprehend."

   Book Signing for Carol Panerio And Michael Trump


Spearfish Arts Center is pleased to announce a book signing for Carol Panerio and Michael Trump on Friday, December 11th from 5 to 7 p.m. There is no cost to attend and the community is invited to talk to the authors about their work.

Carol Panerio, a former piano teacher, discovered the joy of writing in 1997 shortly after family life changes made her a stay-at-home mom for an eight-year-old daughter and a caregiver for a husband handicapped from a stroke. She is a member of the Bearlodge Writers and enjoys reading, cooking, studying Italian and traveling to Italy with her husband to visit his relatives where she is forced to use her meager Italian skills.

Carol’s book, “Then Face to Face,” is about Daunte Carlucci, a lonely widower in an Italian village, who is estranged from his son and family. The one thing he longs for is his family’s love. A simple solution eludes him until an accident forces him to look within. He discovers a critical flaw in his life that he has kept a secret even from himself.

Michael Trump, Esquire, is a native of the American West. He cultivated his inherent interest in his homeland by obtaining a Bachelor of Science degree and a Master of Arts degree in history. Subsequently, he obtained his Juris Doctorate degree. Mr. Trump owns and operates Trump Law Office and makes his home in the beautiful Black Hills of South Dakota.

Michael’s book, “Raiding Deadwood’s Bad Lands,” explores the details on why Deadwood has been called South Dakota’s playground since the state was founded in 1889.

   Hospice Trees Of Lights Programs To Honor Loved Ones


The holidays hold special memories for all of us. During this season of remembering, Hospice of the Northern Hills (HNH) will host a "Trees of Lights" lighting ceremony at 3 p.m., in the Convention Center of the Northern Hills Holiday Inn in Spearfish, on Sunday, Dec. 6.

In addition to the ceremony, "Trees of Lights" will be lit outside Spearfish Regional Hospital, Lead-Deadwood Regional Hospital, Sturgis Regional Hospital, and the Belle Fourche Regional Senior Care on this special night. All the "Trees of Lights" will be decorated with ornaments in memory of loved ones. Duplicate ornaments will be on each tree over the holiday season, including trees inside the facilities.

Families of Hospice patients, and others who have lost loved ones, are invited to the lighting ceremony. As part of this special event, gifts to Hospice can be given in memory of loved ones or in honor of a special occasion.

"A special ornament will be hung on the trees in memory of a loved one for a donation of any size," said Mavis Jewitt, HNH Director. "This is an opportunity to remember someone who has enriched your life or to memorialize someone special."

This is the seventh year for the "Trees of Lights." The event was initiated in an effort to encourage more people to remember and celebrate the lives of their loved ones who have died. The memorial ornaments are for everyone, not just Hospice patients. They are to "remember and celebrate any life that has touched their life in a special way," according to Jewitt.

A donation to the program ensures Hospice services will be there for those who need them. Proceeds allow Hospice to provide a patient-centered, team-oriented program of care for terminally-ill patients and their families and caregivers throughout the dying and grieving experience.

Hospice of the Hills will also host a tree-lighting ceremony in Rapid City at 3 p.m., at Blessed Sacrament Church, on Sunday, Dec. 6. A tree lighting for those in the Southern Hills will take place at Custer First Interstate Bank at 6 p.m. on Tuesday, Dec. 1. In addition to their service of remembrance for Hospice of the Hills patients, anyone can memorialize or honor a loved one with a star hung with the Christmas decorations at Rapid City Regional Hospital.

Hospice donations can be forwarded to: Hospice of the Northern Hills, 1440 North Main, Spearfish, SD, 57783. If you have questions about the "Trees of Lights", call Hospice of the Northern Hills at (605) 644-4237.

   Lead Deadwood High School Presents A CHRISTMAS CAROL


It’s a play about a play. It’s a set with actors as the furniture. Scrooge? Where is Scrooge?!

The Lead-Deadwood High School Drama team is presenting Charles Dickens’ A Christmas Carol like you have never seen it before. In this version, you will encounter a group of traveling players about to perform the Dickens story. The cranky stage manager has just one prop box but no Scrooge. He has just one crutch but no Tiny Tim. However, the play must go on!

“It is going to be A Christmas Carol full of surprises, magic and its famous message,” says Director Barbara Fosheim.

The traveling players, comprised of all LDHS students, quickly pull together the life of Ebenezer Scrooge. The Christmas Spirits work their magic and warm the heart of Scrooge…if they can actually find someone to play the part of the old miser.
The play is under the direction of Ms. Fosheim, Mr. Dean Peterson and Mr. Andy Shaw.
The cast of players includes, Logan Sulentic, Justin Hunter, Taylor Miller, Eli Corbett, Ashley Kjellsen, Joey Jones, Gretchen Messner, Keersten Simmons, Shelby Krueger-Woller, Brittnee McClure-Cyphers, Genae Messner, Sabrina Brossart and Ariel Hantke.

A Christmas Carol will be performed on Friday, November 20 at 7:00pm and Saturday, November 21 at 2:00pm in the LDHS auditorium. There will be holiday treats following both performances.
