"Imagine what the passengers back then must have experienced," one rider on board commented. "With more than two horses, the ride would have been faster, and possibly a lot more dusty than what we're going through." "And probably a lot rougher than this road," Penny answered. Penny also mentioned that Lauren loved horses and wasn't surprised when her granddaughter chose to ride with driver, Jim Burg, on top of the stage rather than inside with her family.

Drought. Tomado. Flooding across our great state. It has been quite spring. Preparedness is the word Southwest Water Authority (SWA) began disaster planning in 1998 in preparation for Y2K. A disaster recovery manual was developed and agreements with others were formed. Thankfully, Y2K did not occur, but in 2001, the tragic events of September 11 took place, and in 2005, Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, New requirements were implemented by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). All water utilities had to complete a vulnerability assessment and develop an Emergency Response Plan (ERP). SWA has been a part of the Southwest Regional Disaster Coalition since 2006, and last fall SWA finalized and signed a Memorandum of Understanding with Gardson Diversion Conservancy Distdct for providing emergency services to SWA should a situation develop that requires assistance. SWA has also been a part of the WARN (Water and Wastewater Response Network) steering committee in North Dakota. WARN programs allow utilities to cross jurisdictional boundaries to provide aid during andfollowing an emergency. SWA has also taken part in tabletop exercises, had staff trained in Incident Command Systems and employees have been fit tested for personal .protection equipment. Employees have also had training in pandemic flu preparedness.

After the ride, which stopped at the parking lot of the Chateau deMores, they went inside to buy tickets to see the 126-year-old structure. But before going up to the house, they were invited to view an original stagecoach that had been owned by the Marquis deMores, who had started a stage line from Medora to Deadwood. As the stagecoach ride takes the passengers away from the sights and most of the sounds of the mod- em world, it doesn't take a lot of imagination to picture the West of the 1880s, dust and all.
