2B SIOUX EMPIRE Argus Leader, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Friday, July 15, 1994 DAKOTA DATELINES Police: Man killed self with forklift RAPID CITY A man linked to a woman's disappearance killed himself four days after helping a friend report her missing, authorities said. Thomas Kueter, 29, allowed a forklift to run him down at the Rapid City plant where he worked, Pennington county cor oner Mike Jacob has ruled. Police said they fear Kueter died holding the key to the June 24 disappearance of Tina Mar- cotte, 30. Marcotte was last seen getting into Kueter s car for a ride home from work. Husband accused in ex-wife's death M ANDERSON A Man- derson man faces federal charges of second-degree murder in the beating death of his former wife. Kevin Keester, 31, is accused in the death of Rhoda Twiss, 31. Twiss died Monday at Rapid City Regional Hospital after being beaten at Keester s home July 5, authorities said. Twiss' survivors include three daughters and one son. Services will be at 10 a.m. Saturday at St. Agnes Church in Manderson. Rapid City man dies in one-car accident RAPID CITY A Rapid City man was killed early Wednesday in a one-car acci dent near Johnson Siding, the Pennington County Sheriff's department said. Thomas M. Mathews, 24, died after his car apparently missed a curve on state Highway 44 and went off the road, authorities said. Mathews was thrown from the car, which landed on him, the sheriff's department said. Sully County added to disaster list PIERRE Sully County was added Thursday to the list of flood-disaster counties. Gov. Walter D. Miller signed paperwork declaring a state of emergency m the central South Dakota county because of flooding that has damaged roads, bridges and agricultural land. So far this year, the state has declared emergencies in 21 communities. The federal gov ernment has followed up with a disaster declaration for 15 of those counties. Miller has asked that six other counties be added to the federal list. Senate panel OKs air-service money The Senate Appropriations Committee on Thursday approved $33.4 million for the Essential Air Service Program for 1995, which provides money for flights to several South Dakota cities. The Clinton administration and the House of Representatives proposed cutting the financing, which jeopardized service to Mitchell and Brookings, said Sen. Larry Pressler, R-S.D. Under an earlier House version, only Yankton would have qualified for money, he said. Besides full financing for air service, the Transportation Appropriations Bill includes money for South Dakota's highways, bridges, railroads and airports, Pressler said. The full Senate now will consider the bill. Loans available for flood repairs PIERRE South Dakota homeowners and businesses suffering from flood-related damage from this year's rains have access to financial help. The U.S. Small Business Administration on Thursday said it will accept loan applications for physical damage and economic injury in Brookings and Codington counties. The disaster loan area also includes the contiguous counties of Clark, Day, Deuel, Grant, Hamlin, Kingsbury, Lake and Moody, as well as Lincoln and Pipestone counties in Minnesota. The SBA loans offer interest rates from 3.625 to 7.125 percent. For more information, contact the Small Business Administration, Disaster Area 1 Office, 360 Rainbow Blvd. S., Third Floor, Niagara Falls, NY 14303. Man accused of robbing woman at knife point By MIKE TRAUTMANN Argus Leader Staff A Rapid City man has been charged with robbing a woman at knife point early Thursday in east Sioux Falls and taking her car. Roger Darrell Reuer Jr., 34, is being held in the Minnehaha County Jail on $50,000 bond after he appeared Thursday in Magistrate Court on charges of aggravated assault and first-degree robbery. At 1:53 a.m., Jolynn Rae Routh was at the Get-N-Go at 2217 E. 10th St. when a man got into her vehicle while it was unattended, police said. The man was carrying a knife and struggled with Routh before she was able to escape without injuries. Authorities have no evidence suggesting that the two knew each other. Reuer was arrested at 2:40 a.m. Thursday In the 800 block of West First Street after a resident became suspicious of him and called police. Reuer was arrested after a short pursuit on foot. Reuer has been charged with more than a half-dozen crimes since he was sent to prison for 10 years in 1987 for grand theft and attempted drug trafficking. Reuer was sentenced June 8 to pay a $100 fine after he pleaded guilty to disorderly conduct. Police said Reuer threatened to kill a man he thought was dating his wife, Peggy Reuer. On June 8, Reuer was sentenced to pay a $100 fine and ordered to have no contact with Peggy Reuer after he admitted violating a protection order filed against him. Police arrested Reuer after he ordered Peggy Reuer into his car May 16 to work out their relationship. Reuer was arrested July 6 on a charge of violating a protection order against his one-time wife, Peggy Reuer. Police said Reuer drove to her residence May 26 and started shouting at her.

Sleuths: Teachers hope to increase interest in science Continued from 1 B mary Opbroek, 45, a science and math teacher at Burke High School. "I get so tired of that." Opbroek and four other teachers were creating a fake crime scene Thursday afternoon. David Sivertsen, 50, a Miller High School science teacher, was the culprit in the burglary of a van owned by Huron High School science teacher Tom Barket, 50. The team left evidence on the van and on Sivertsen and another team of teachers was to inspect the crime scene and make scientific deductions. "I'm the culprit," Sivertsen said. The teachers enjoyed their work, laughing and teasing each other as they left fingerprints on the van and a piece of carpet on the bottom of Sivertsen's shoe. But they said there was a serious message in their work Instructor is pen pals with Charles Manson By TOM LAWRENCE Argus Leader Staff BROOKINGS They're an unlikely pair to be exchanging letters, the Iowa high school science teacher and cult leader and convicted murderer Charles Manson. Jim Hurley, 43, who teaches at Waverly High School and serves as an adjunct professor at the University of Northern Iowa in the summer, has written and received letters from Manson for the past year. "Manson proclaims strongly his innocence," Hurley said. "He said he was not involved. Of course, he was." Hurley, who is conducting a week-long seminar on forensic science in Brookings, sought Manson for insight into the criminal mind. The two have corresponded about 24 times, he said. He said Manson as revealed through his letters is childish, vindictive and generally bizarre. this week. "There's a lot of good science here," said Judy Vondruska, 30, a Mitchell High School science teacher. She started a crime laboratory class at the end of the 1993-94 school year for students in her advanced biology and physics classes. "This shows them they can use the science they've been learning for the past few years," she said. Police: Students make up half of town's population Confinued from 1 B Dan Gukeisen, who lived in a frat house for three years and now attends the law school, said, "Police walking or driving by use noise meters or anything they can to gain entrance." USD students make up about half of Vermillion's 10,000 population. The yearly influx of 18- to 20-year-olds, many of whom are away from home for the first time, translates into an underage drinking problem that isn't going to go away, Wright said. "Are we getting criticized for upholding the law, enforcing the law?" he asked. "Well, that's too bad, then." Statistics show that when underage drinking is ignored, it results in more physical and sexual assaults, thefts, damage to private property and drunken driving, Wright said. The police would be neglecting their duty to protect citizens if they didn't address the problem. The same goes for police calls on frat houses, most of which are in response to complaints from neighbors or people inside, he said. But police respond differently to student complaints, said Gukeisen, who claimed to be the victim of several thefts. "When you call in a complaint it seems like they kind of blow you off." Not so, Wright said. "We answer the calls as quick as we can with the workload we have ... and our stats can show that, too." Carole Cox, coordinator of co-curric-ular programs and Greek life, knows students and police often see opposite sides of the coin. "It's a perception students have that everything that has to do with them is extremely important and needs immediate attention, and I know the police need to prioritize their response to different calls. I'm not sure that's always communicated to the students or the general public," she said. But if the Vermillion survey is any indication, about half of the USD student body isn't complaining. Paul Verbanac has heard the beefs but said the police are doing their job. DAKOTA CALENDAR Today's events Sioux Falls Canaries, 6:05 p.m., at Thunder Bay.
