Area news digest DAWSON-The Dawson-Boyd School maintenance staff along with the school board are looking into why there was a considerable amount of water in the entrance to the gym and lobby after a rain recently. Either the interior flashing is bad, or the broken block on the building did not have the sealant mixed in with the block before it was applied to the Dawson-Boyd Community Center. The type of block on the gym is very porous. After inspection, it was determined that the roof was not the problem. A good coat of sealant was applied to the south side of the gym and they have to wait and see if this works. This sealant, which could be applied every five to 10 years, would cost around $900. The problem is that the sealant should have been included with the block before it was applied. The school board wants to find out why this was missed in the bidding. The state inspector will first be contacted to check and see who is responsible. BENSON-The Cloverleaf Supper Club in Benson was burglarized some time after the business closed at 8:15 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 15 and before it opened again at 4:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 16.

Items that were taken were two TVs, seven cases of beer, a full case of steaks, 3/4 case of steak fillets, multiple dart shafts and wings, five complete sets of darts and two large speakers from a sound system. Information on missing items are still coming in. If anyone has information about this burglary, they are asked to call the Swift County Sheriff's Department.

'MILBANK, SD-The Grant-Deuel School District has won a lawsuit against the Philadelphia Insurance Company for $391,000. the school district sued the insurance company after it refused to pay for repairs to the school roof after a glue-laminated wooden beam in the Sped-Resource room broke in March 2001. The break put the entire roof at risk for collapse. The two parties settled out of court in a mediated settlement. "I am very happy," said Arlo Levisen, superintendent. "School districts don't win these cases very often. It was definitely David vs. Goliath, and David won!"

According to Visa, the number of properties that accept Visa credit and debit cards for rental payments rose 43 percent during the past year. While consumer demand for the con- venience of making monthly rental payments with a credit or debit card has driven the rise in acceptance, pay- ing by plastic isn't for everyone. "If you're thekind of person who pays your credit card bill in full every month, charg.ing your rent can be a very convement way to make your payments," said Steve Rhode, presi- dent and co-founder of Myvesta.org, a nonprofit financial crisis center. "Charging that large of an expense every month and immediately paying off the balance is a great way to rack up points in credit card reward pro- grams or cash back from cards who offer rebates." But Rhode warns that those who aren't so diligent about paying their balance in full can end up deep in debt. "Even the people with the best intentions of paying off the rental charge will be tempted into letting it slide," Rhode said. "And if you're the kind of person who normally carries a balance from month to month, getting into the habit of charging your rent can really get you in over your head." Along with the rise in rental prop- erties accepting credit cards, many utility, telecommunications and cable companies are accepting credit cards as a form of payment.
