“Long ago American Indians carried rocks to a designated spot on a hillside, west of present-day Gary…
It’s always interesting to see other blogs picking up on posts from this blog. I think its fun to read what they have to say about our activities in Deuel County.

Increasing sales tax revenue is a sign of strength in a local economy, and is particularly exciting in rural communities. That said, the sales tax revenue progress in Gary this year is very interesting…
I have been watching Gary Sales tax progress throughout the year to see what type of impact that the business, tourists, and inflow of construction workers may be having on the Gary economy as a result of the development of Buffalo Ridge Resort & Business Center. Exactly how much Buffalo Ridge might have to do with the increases is hard to say at this point, but all the activity around there since the beginning of the year certainly makes them a very likely source.
Check out this short powerpoint to see various sales tax comparisons. As of the end of August, the City of Gary is 84% of the way to meeting the 2008 sales tax total. It certainly looks promising that Gary will have a healthy overall gain in sales tax come the end of the year. It will be interesting to see, that’s for sure!
*Numbers sourced from the South Dakota Department of Revenue & Regulation. The numbers include both the general city sales tax and the municipal gross receipts tax.
*These numbers do not include the following: Contractors Excise Tax, Audit Payments, Miscellaneous Payments, Deduction for Administrative Fee, and Deduction for Food Tax Refund.
Take a look at how a piece of history has come alive! The gallery above shows pictures of Buffalo Ridge before and after the renovations took place. However, if you haven’t been over to Gary, SD, to see the magic for yourself, know that these pictures do not to the project justice. You need to see this with your own eyes!!
The number of people who flooded through the campus of Buffalo Ridge on July 3rd and 4th will never be known for sure, but to say “thousands” would not be an exaggeration. A steady stream of visitors was always on the move in the halls of the Herrick Hotel. Others left their footprints in the sand along the edge of newly restored Lake Elsie. Travelers came from both near and far to see see the campus back in its prime.

PS: Don’t forget to make your reservation for a teepee to camp in this summer! Three are available at a cost of $35 each.
Are you heading over to Gary for the holiday weekend? If so, be sure to head down Coteau Street and check out the former South Dakota School for the Blind and Visually Impaired, now known as the Buffalo Ridge Resort and Business Center. Take a stroll around the campus, where as if by magic, the property has been refreshed back to the days of 1872.
The outside is obviously gorgeous, but wait until you see the inside! The Herrick Hotel will be open for public viewing both Friday and Saturday from 1:00 pm-6:00 pm. Walk up and down the hallways, rich in history, as the past comes alive. Each of the 19 rooms in the hotel is unique. Every room has its own personal style including exceptional pieces of artwork created by regional artists.
The hotel is booked solid for the 4th of July weekend, however, if you would like to reserve a room for another day call 1-888-200-6074 . Rates will vary depending on the season and which room you will be staying in.
If you are visiting Buffalo Ridge, make sure to take advantage of the numerous other activities available in Gary during the weekend. For a complete list, CLICK HERE!
Hope to see you all in Gary for a historical, fun filled weekend!!

Gary has a new business in town! Welcome to American Financial Partners!
American Financial Partners LLC is an established finance company. They specialize in designing customized solutions for new or expanding companies to finance and lease a wide variety of equipment including: computers, manufacturing, signage, graphics equipment, medical software, concrete equipment, and many others. AFP has also recently entered the renewable energy market and will be providing finance options for wind turbine gear box purchase and repair. The company currently offers equipment financing and leasing throughout all fifty states. Their headquarter offices will be held at former School for the Blind, now the Buffalo Ridge Resort & Business Center.
All businesses have certain equipment they need in order to start-up or expand their existing business. In many cases, the funds needed to purchase the equipment are prohibitive; and this is where American Financial Partners can step in. AFP will provide customized lease solutions for a business or for the customers of a business in order to provide a ‘one stop shop’ option. Through their unsurpassed customer service and financial solutions, they are able to help businesses flourish year after year.
So, my question was to Amy Wagner, Vice President of AFP was, what are the advantages of leasing? Here are few, among the many, benefits of leasing.
- Lease payments can be a tax-deductible expense
- Leasing helps obtain equipment at the lowest possibly monthly cost
- Leasing enhances the ability to purchase add-on equipment or upgrades
- Deferred payment options allows new equipment to generate profit before having to make payments
- Leasing preserves cash flow
American Financial Partners’ corporate location was previously in Marshall, MN with a satellite office in Canby, MN and is currently run entirely by women. These ladies really know what they’re doin’. They’re fun, they’re talented, and they’re goin’ places. Welcome to Deuel County, American Financial Partners! We’re glad to have you here.
