Former Police Chief Killing
In this photo taken Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2016, Russell Bertram, a former police chief in South Dakota, is escorted into the Gregory County Courthouse in Burke, S.D., by Deputy Chelsea Biehl for the first day of oral arguments in his murder trial. A jury on Monday, Sept. 26, 2016, found a former South Dakota police chief guilty of first degree murder in the death of his pregnant fiancee in 2009. Prosecutors accused Bertram in the killing of 26-year-old Leonila Stickney in 2009 to collect more than $900,000 insurance money. They also said jealousy was a factor because Bertram had undergone a vasectomy and knew the child couldn't be his. A Gregory County jury returned the guilty verdict on Monday.

The goats are back in Bear Creek Regional Park, to do their job of eliminating the noxious weeds and filling their stomachs at the same time. One goat was even doing a little tree trimming by munching on some leaves on Monday, Sept. 26, 2016. The more than 400 goats were hired by the Bear Creek Garden Association and will be there for 10 days. Last year, the herd owner pulled their goats out because of a problem of unleashed dogs. This year, there are bigger fines for having dogs off leash and patrols will be stepped up. ONLINE PHOTO GALLERY photo by Jerilee Bennett,The Gazette
