Opponents of the Keystone XL Pipeline will gather at noon Saturday in downtown Rapid City to protest the plan to transport Canadian crude oil in a pipeline across South Dakota to refineries in southern states.

The gathering at Main Street Square will include members of Occupy Rapid City, Dakota Rural Action and the South Dakota Peace and Justice Center.

Dakota Rural Action has been promoting a bill in the South Dakota Legislature to give landowners more standing in cases where eminent domain is used to secure private land for pipelines and rail lines. A motion to approve the bill recently failed in the state House of Representatives a 30-39 vote. The House deadlocked 35-35 on a motion to reconsider.

Fur-Ever Wild was just approved to keep wolf cubs and fox kits at a wildlife education center in Deadwood. Do you agree with the South Dakota Animal Industry Board's ruling?
