Pierre’s essential air service most likely will not get better anytime soon. That’s according to South Dakota Senator Mike Rounds.

Pierre’s bid to get another airline firm, Aerodynamics Inc., to provide flights in and out of the capitol is not going to happen.

In September a former South Dakota legislator dropped the Westerhuis murders at Mike Rounds' feet.

Rounds built a self-insured house in a swamp that his administration knew was susceptible to flooding which of course flooded in 2011.

Back in October a source close to the Rounds family said Tike Mike was talking about resigning his seat.
