Here's what you need to know.

A lot has been happening in Sioux Falls, from new buildings to new residents and all the challenges that go along with a fast-growing and changing city.

Sioux Falls Simplified's weekly email newsletter cuts through the clutter and delivers the bullet-pointed, bite-sized version of the local news you need to feel smart about the forces that shape Sioux Falls.

No jargon. No opinion content. No B.S.

Who is this for?

People who can answer yes to (at least) one of the following questions:

  • Are you a member of the Sioux Falls community?
  • Do you like knowing what's going on around you?
  • Do you like staying informed but don't feel like sifting through social media headlines to figure out what matters?

What do I get when I sign up?

You become a part of our email list, where you'll get a free weekly newsletter summarizing the news you need to know (no crime, no state or national politics, just hyper-focused news on the Sioux Falls metro area).

Is it really free to read?

Yes! All you need to do is subscribe. That said, creating this type of news takes time, and I could really use your support to help ensure Sioux Falls Simplified becomes a permanent feature of the community. Find out how you can become a friend of the publication here.

I know news because I've worked for more nearly a decade as a journalist and freelance reporter, most recently as an editor for the Sioux Falls Argus Leader.

This is my family:

And yeah, that's one of the better pictures of the four of us together...
