Federal workers have returned to the job throughout South Dakota after the end of the 16-day partial shutdown of the federal government.
Park Ranger Mike Adams is glad to have some company. He was the lone worker at the federal fish hatchery at Spearfish during the shutdown that ended Thursday, and he says it got kind of lonely. He says there was no one to talk to but the fish.
Farm Service Agency offices also are back in business. Minnehaha County FSA Director Larry Olsen says it's a good feeling - though there's a lot of work to catch up on.
National parks also have reopened. Wind Cave Superintendent Vidal Davila says workers are excited to be back because autumn is a great time of year.
