In an effort to protect people during the Covid-19 pandemic, checkpoints are being set up on the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe reservation border on US 212. According to a story by Alaina Beautiful Bald Eagle, editor of the West River Eagle in Eagle Butte, the borders are not closed, but checkpoints will help to monitor motorists as part of the CRST emergency response plans. Out-of-state motorists will not be allowed onto the reservation, except for trucks and vendors delivering supplies for businesses on the reservation, or those providing proof of tribal membership or reservation residency. The checkpoint is planned to be near the bridge, across the river from Bob’s Resort.

STD Awareness Month Doesn’t Just Apply to Humans

April is STD Awareness Month, and cows should not be left out of the conversation. Trichomoniasis, or trich, is a sexually transmitted disease that has the ability to cut a calf crop in half, according to Boehringer Ingelheim. Infected animals may show no outward signs, which is why trich often goes unnoticed until it’s too late. When bulls are infected with trich, it is considered a lifelong infection with no legal treatment. While cows can clear the disease, they will likely experience reproductive failures such as infertility and low pregnancy rates. Boehringer Ingelheim suggests producers take a moment during STD Awareness Month to learn about trich, and work with a veterinarian to put a prevention plan in place that includes testing, bull selection, record keeping, biosecurity measures and vaccination. Boehringer Ingelheim says it’s important to work with a veterinarian to develop management practices and a vaccination regimen to keep your herd STD free.

US Attorney urges reporting suspected COVID-19 fraud or price gouging

The United States Attorney’s Office is urging the public to report suspected fraud schemes related to COVID-19.

Attorney General William Barr has created the COVID-19 Hoarding and Price Gouging Task Force. In a memo to U.S. Attorneys, Barr said they will aggressively pursue bad actors who amass critical supplies either far beyond what they could use or for the purpose of profiteering. He says scarce medical supplies need to be going to hospitals for immediate use in care, not to warehouses for later overcharging. Barr says the Department is committed to preventing hoarding and price gouging for critical supplies during this crisis.

US Attorney for South Dakota Ron Parsons says report the fraud by calling the National Center for Disaster Fraud hotline (1-866-720-5721) or email information to the NCDF (disaster@leo.gov).

The NCDF coordinates complaints with 16 federal law enforcement agencies, as well as state Attorneys General and local authorities.

Some examples of COVID-19 schemes include:

  • Individuals and businesses selling fake cures or fake testing kits for COVID-19 online and engaging in other forms of fraud.
  • Phishing emails from entities posing as the World Health Organization or the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
  • Malicious websites and apps that appear to share Coronavirus-related information to gain and lock access to your devices until payment is received.
  • Seeking donations fraudulently for illegitimate or non-existent charitable organizations.
  • Medical providers obtaining patient information for COVID-19 testing and then using that information to fraudulently bill for other tests and procedures.

In coordination with the Department of Justice, Attorney General William Barr has directed U.S. Attorneys to prioritize the investigation and prosecution of Coronavirus fraud schemes. Assistant U.S. Attorney Ann M. Hoffman has been named South Dakota’s Coronavirus Fraud Coordinator.
