Slow Burn


The Yankton High School Pioneer Day coronation ceremony, held Thursday night, concluded with the traditional burning of the “Y” in the parking lot. However, after last year’s effort went up quickly and began collapsing, this year’s redesigned, reinforced “Y” had trouble reaching a high flame. Homecoming festivities continue today (Friday) with events that include a 2:30 p.m. parade and the 7 p.m. football game against Vermillion.
