RAPID CITY, S.D. –
Those circulating petitions against the Rapid City school district tax increase have a new challenge. They can no longer collect signatures on interior sidewalks in front of the post office.
A Rapid City police officer spent the morning arguing with those carrying the clipboards. He explained that the postal service had complained and the group must relocate to the public sidewalk.
By 4:30 p.m., that argument ends with the arrest of a petitioner, 68-year-old Roberta Helmerick of Black Hawk. Helmerick was arrested for failure to vacate after receiving notice.
