Odle for Butte County Commission District 2

UPDATE:   Results are in!  Polly Odle beats out incumbent for Butte County Commission seat.  (   Polly Odle describes herself as fresh voice with a familiar face in Butte County.  Polly is a long time resident of Butte County and with her husband raised five beautiful children near Nisland.  You may know her already, but if not, you may have a chance to connect with her during her during her campaign for a seat on the Butte County Commission, District 2 in South Dakota. Polly spent six years as the Director of Equalization & Planning for Butte County and she is the Property Manager at Canyon Estates in Spearfish (properties/canyon-estates-spearfish.html) , Live Center (properties/live-center-lemmon.html) and Prairie West Apartments (properties/prairie-west-lemmon.html) in Lemmon, for Thies & Talle Management, Inc.  She is now ready to use that knowledge and experience to serve the people of Butte County in a new capacity. Polly is not a career politician and this is her first campaign. “I've chosen to pursue this for a simple reason, but I think it's the best one, I love my community,” says Polly.  A few things Polly is focusing on are property rights, the infrastructure of our roads and bridges, a balanced budget and the County Fair.  Her love for the community and her commitment to the community is in the hope that the five children she has raised will one day choose to live and work in here too.  Polly extends this hope to everyone who lives in Butte County, “My promise to you is that I'll approach this position with common sense, integrity, and a commitment to responsible progress and I'd be honored to have your vote.” Thies & Talle Management would like to wish Polly the best of luck in the election and get out to vote on June 7th.

Spiderman to the rescue!

  There are several lessons to be learned from a potentially disastrous event that took place at Plymouth Ponds Apartments on October 4th, 2015.  First, never leave candles or any burning objects unattended and never empty ashtrays into the wastebasket, or use a wastebasket for an ashtray.  Second, super heroes exist, for evidence read the heroic story of our own friendly neighborhood Spiderman Urias Jah in the Star Tribune article Spiderman to the Rescue as Plymouth Teen Climbs Building to extinguish Fire ( . Plymouth Assistant Fire Chief Matt Nordby recommended Jah for the Citizens Award after he learned of Jah’s feat to assist with extinguishing a deck fire that could have spread quickly. “I don’t know how he did it and did it with an extinguisher,” Nordby said. After all precautions were taken to ensure the fire was out, Assistant Fire Chief Nordby and each of his crew members shook Jah’s hand and thanked him. Such heroics deserved recognition, said Nordby. “So many lives are affected and changed by a simple apartment fire, between the smoke damage and the water damage and people being displaced,” Nordby said. “He saved us a lot of work. But mostly, he made an impact on the residents there so they were able to stay in their apartment that night.” More than 200 people live in the Plymouth Ponds apartments. Plymouth Public Safety Director Mike Goldstein presented 17-year-old Urias Jah of Plymouth Ponds Apartments a Citizens Award on March 3.  The City of Plymouth annually recognizes several residents and police officers for heroic and helpful acts within the city, some resulting in the saving of a life.  Thank you Urias Jah.
