4B STATEREGION Argus Leader, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Wednesday, July 20, 1994 Rapid City police vow to resolve vanished woman case The Associated Press RAPID CITY Someone stuck a knife through a tire on Tina Marcotte s car the night she disappeared, police said. But police also said they don't have enough evidence to indicate that Thomas Kueter, the last person who was seen with Marcotte, was the one who damaged the tire. "We're just going to keep investigating this disappearance, or death if that's what it turns out to be, until we have proven who's responsible," whether that is Thomas Kueter or somebody else, said Capt. Doug Noyes. Marcotte had called a friend shortly after midnight June 24 to ask for a ride home because a tire on her car was flat. Her friend said that Kueter offered her a ride. And police said they think she accepted. The friend, Vicky Riddle, said that during the phone conversation, Kueter pulled up outside the plant where Marcotte worked and offered the ride. Kueter was described as a casual friend of Marcotte and her boyfriend, Patrick Gleason. The next day, Kueter reported Marcotte missing and denied seeing her the previous night. Four days later, Kueter was killed when a forklift crushed his skull at a wood products processing plant. Pennington County authorities ruled the death a suicide. Police would not say whether Kueter was a suspect in Marcotte's disappearance before his death. Experts think someone stuck a knife in the sidewall of left front tire of Marcotte's car, based on the shape of the puncture mark. Rapid City police and the Pennington County Sheriff's department are continuing their search for Marcotte. Authorities fear she might be dead, according to Noyes. i, 0 ) Associated Press Former Gov. Rudy Perich said Tuesday morning on WCCO Radio that he won't run for governor this year, but will seek the office in 1998. , Perpich says Minnesotans aren't ready for his new ideas Former governor won't run this year, but will in 1998 By MARY R. SANDOK Associated Press MINNEAPOLIS Former Gov. Rudy Perpich said Tuesday that Minnesota is not yet ready for his kind of innovative leadership, so he won't seek his old job again until 1998. After hinting for months that this year he would make a second bid for an unprecedented fourth term, Perpich surprised the state's political establishment when he announced that he would not be a candidate this fall. "There's no doubt in my mind I can win the primary," Per pich said. "The general election is another question." Perpich, 66, said he received lukewarm response to his ideas as he traveled throughout the state in recent weeks. "Is Minnesota ready for rapid innovation?" he asked. "I don't think so." Perpich announced his decision in an early morning interview on WCCO Radio on the day the two-week candidate filing period closed. Instead of running this year, he said, "I intend to promote my ideas and run for governor in 1998." Perpich said it will take four years to win support for his ideas because they are "going to be very controversial." Among ideas he mentioned were creating a gambling, convention, entertainment and hotel complex in downtown Minneapolis or St. Paul and building a subway system. "In four years . . . people on the freeways are going to say, 'Hey, Perpich is right, we have to have some kind of a transit system,'" he told reporters after his announcement. Perpich said that 10 days ago he was convinced he would run this year. But he said he decided during the weekend he would not because he did not have enough money to pay for TV ads. Already the state's longest-serving governor with 10 years in office and the first chief executive to hold non-consecutive terms, Perpich left office 312 years ago in a snit. The DFLer blamed longtime political friends, the media and others for his November 1990 defeat to Independent-Republican Arne Carlson. Five more S.D. counties added to flood disaster list Twenty counties eligible now for federal aid The Associated Press PIERRE Five South Dakota counties were declared flood disaster areas Tuesday by the Federal Emergency Management Agency, bringing the total on the list to 20. , Campbell, Deuel, Potter, Sully and Ziebach counties are the latest to receive the disaster designation. V "Public entities in the five counties declared this week are now eligible for 75 percent matching federal aid for such things as debris removal, emergency services and repair or replacement of public facilities," said Gov. Walter D. Miller. The disaster declaration covers damage from flooding that has occurred since March 1. "Recent reports have indicated that spring flooding and damaging weather is continuing throughout South Dakota, and that the number of counties eligible for assistance needs to be expanded," said U.S. Sen. Tom Daschle, D-S.D. "I am very pleased with today's announcement and will continue to work to ensure that the funds are delivered in a timely manner." President Clinton declared 15 counties disaster areas on June 21, including Brookings, Brown, Clark, Codington, Day, Edmunds, Grant, Hand, Hanson, Kingsbury, McPherson, Marshall, Roberts, Sanborn and Spink.

Forest Service uses beetles to fight weed growth in Hills The Associated Press SPEARFISH The U.S. Forest Service hopes to get a little help from some bugs in its war with weeds in the Black Hills. The service does not spray chemicals in Spearfish Canyon and other areas, but the agency does want to keep weeds under control. "We will not eradicate the weeds," said Jeff Kwasny, a range-land management specialist for the Black Hills National Forest Spearfish Ranger District. "Hopefully, we can keep some of them at a level that we can live with." The Forest Service released about 1,800 Klamath weed beetles in the canyon last week. Their main target St. Johnswort, a yellow-flowered weed that's taken over some open areas in the canyon. Earlier, the Forest Service released bugs that eat leafy spurge and Canada thistle. About the only drawback to biological weed control is the time it takes for the insects to get established, said Kwasny. Once insects are introduced in an area, it will be about five years before the weeds start to show a decline, he said. Up-front, bugs cost more than chemicals. At $50 per 100, Klamath weed beetles are one of the cheaper species available. But insects cost less than chemicals in the long run, said Kwasny. The district orders bugs from out of state, but eventually officials hope to produce their own bugs. "Our goal is to someday get so many bugs in this canyon that we'll have our own insectory," Kwasny said. Then, weed control will be a matter of netting bugs and releasing them elsewhere. t r a 1 4 - r-R 1 .in -. . - ------r V : : m - II ia-V 0 The Argus Leader Classified BBS mm We Specialize In Technical Training for Today's Jobs...
