Sioux Falls Noon Sertoma Club

Very interesting program!Alex Alecci, KDLT Chief Meteorologist was Noon Sertoma Club speaker for April 10, 2018.
Alex joined KDLT as chief meteorologist in December of 2017. He started his career as a student intern at WKMG Orlando in May of 2012. At the time he was studying meteorology at Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University in Daytona Beach. For a year, Alex juggled his full time job with WKMG and his studies at Embry-Riddle until he graduated with honors in May of 2013. Alex spent 3 and a half years working in Orlando before moving to Omaha, Nebraska to join KETV in December 2015 as a weekend meteorologist and reporter.
March 20th marked the start of Spring which was, believe it or not, over 2 weeks ago. Instead of seeing our first 70 degree day, the Sioux Empire continued to see not only cooler than normal temperatures but snow as well.
Current conditions show more convection, or thunderstorm activity, over western portions of the Pacific and it’s expected to continue into western parts of Africa into the second week of April. That uptick in thunderstorm activity means that much of the northern CONUS (Continental United States) will experience cooler than normal temperatures. In fact, those temperatures are expected to be between 10 and 25 degrees below normal.
Unfortunately, as we go further into Spring, especially April, it looks as though there’s going to be an increased chance for precipitation. This is most likely due to the Jetstream still in a La Nina type set up with a ridge over the west coast and a trough located to our southeast.

Jolene Loetscher (left) Candidate for Sioux Falls Mayor was Noon Sertoma Club speaker for April 3, 2018. Jolene was introduced by Brad Jans (right).
Jolene a former TV journalist turned small business owner and political activist. She has three area which need to be addressed in Sioux Falls.
Trust and transparency. First and foremost. She will have a conversation with just about anyone in Sioux Falls eventually or initially. What always comes up is “I don't know if I can trust the decisions being made are as transparent as they should be”. Day one May 15th right after Jolene is sworn in. She will walk down to City Hall and we are taking the door off the Mayor's office. Because it's not my office it's our office
Growth in Sioux Falls. Sioux Falls is in uniquely positioned to be able to hire and bring in people who want to work in cyber security jobs. Our neighbors to the west at Dakota State University, are graduating the nation's top cyber security students and the vast majority are going out of state. Sioux Falls in next 20 years need to try to help business and industries to locate in Sioux Falls so that graduates of college and technical schools can stay in South Dakota.
Crime and safety. If she's elected, she wants to restructure the city's police force into five precincts. “The needs of northwest part of town or the northeast part of town are different than the needs of the southwest or the southeast or in the core," she said.
She said the police force needs to grow as the city grows and that currently the law enforcement center is at capacity. Loetscher said there is no viable real estate around the current LEC and that because of the way the structure is built, it's not possible to add stories.
