Founded in 1881, before South Dakota even became a state, Miller strives to stay ahead of technology and trends and makes a major advancement with their new website.
The city of Miller, South Dakota, On Hand Development Corporation, Miller Civic and Commerce, and Golden Shovel Agency has teamed up together and launched an online web solution, Economic Gateway. The purpose of this website is to raise awareness of the area of Hand County, SD and all that it has to offer to its residents, current and future business enterprises, and site selectors. The new site can be viewed at http://www.millersd.org
Last fall, our business community let us know that they were looking for qualified applicants to fill numerous jobs in Miller and Hand County. In response, On Hand Development implemented an employee recruitment program to assist our businesses.
I recently read an article titled “Google Brings Website Assistance to South Dakota Businesses”. That got me thinking, how many of our local businesses have a website? If I was to type in a few key words related to a local business, would I be able to find that business? Chances are I would not find what I was looking for which leads to missed opportunities not only for the local business but for Miller as well.
If you want to find the U.S. states and regions with the brightest future, look west. Gallup analysis shows that the West North Central, Mountain, and Pacific regions are likely to be the best areas to live in 20 years, based on the strong economic, health, and community foundations they are building today.
In most cases, there is no one individual responsible for the success of a program. In nearly all, it is the combination of the efforts of many. Often those individuals work quietly , without flair or pageantry to provide a service almost unknown to the general public. One such group is the volunteers of the Wheels and Meals program. Without these caring individuals, the home delivered meal program would not exist. Without these sharing individuals who give of their time, energy and personal expense, dozens of the meals per day would not be distributed to the individuals most at risk in our community. Throughout the past winter, never a day went by without home delivered meals being transported to the homes of our participants.
