Considering USA Today named the Corn Palace one of the Top Ten places to play high school
basketball, it seemed appropriate this year’s theme was “Saluting Youth Activities.”
It was tough saying goodbye to Mitchell's Corn Palace and the town's proud people. We talked shop for a bit with this dude before we hit the dusty trail. He was so personable too despite his rather stiff carriage. He was a font of wisdom when it came to moccasins, the history of Mitchell, the Corn Palace and South Dakota in general, which proved fortuitous for me. Blogs, like history, are always a blend of fact and fiction, just enough of both to weave a good story, albeit a rather corny one from time to time.
