Opsahl-Kostel Funeral Home & Crematory welcomes Alex Opsahl as Licensed Funeral Director

Alex graduated from Yankton High School in 2012, Dakota State University in Madison, SD in 2014 and from the University of Minnesota with his Bachelor of Science in Mortuary Science in 2016.
He is a member of the United Church of Christ in Yankton. He grew
up in the funeral business, starting with washing cars and mowing lawns. As a junior in high school, Alex made the decision to go to college to become a licensed funeral director. For many reasons, Alex chose to pursue a career in funeral service. He wanted to follow
in his father’s footsteps and own his own funeral home. Alex feels a call to help those families who have had a loss in their lives by putting their trust in him for guidance. “The greatest compliment from a family member I can receive is a hug or thank you.” We are excited to have Alex join the Opsahl-Kostel Funeral Home & Crematory staff. As a family owned business, we are proud that Alex will be continuing our tradition of guiding and serving families with compassion and trust.

Dr. Paul and Marley Ann Opsahl

As a part of the two-day meeting of the Yankton College Board of Trustees on April 15-16, the Rev. Dr. Paul Opsahl, who has retired to Sioux Falls with his wife Marley Ann (Brosz) Opsahl, was granted the status of Trustee Emeritus at a dinner ceremony.

Dr. Paul becomes the sixth of a select group of living Trustees who have received this honor, including Mr. William Blount ’60, Dr. Kenneth B. Jones, Dr. Alta Kussman ’49, Dr. Charles Levinger ’52 and Dr. Brooks Ranney.

The criteria for inclusion are: has served a minimum of 15 years on the Yankton College Board of Trustees; has demonstrated past and present expertise in a given field or fields enhancing the work of the Yankton College Board; is an active contributor and is committed to future financial support of Yankton College and has demonstrated his commitment to the Yankton College Mission Statement.

Fellow BOT members attested to Paul’s service on the Board for 36 years, having become a member in 1980.

Growing up in Aberdeen, Paul graduated from Central High School. Then, having already felt the “call” to ministry, he entered the School of Theology program of Yankton College, graduating with a B.A. (Bachelor of Arts) degree in 1957 and a BTh (Bachelor of Theology) Degree in 1958. Soon after earning his second degree, Paul attended Hartford Seminary in CT, where he and Marley Ann were married and from which, after two more years of study, he earned a BD (Bachelor of Divinity) degree.

The young couple served parishes in Cannon Falls and Owatonna MN, then were called to Redfield where he and his family, which now included son Kevin and daughter Kim, flourished and did the work of the Lord for 21 1/2 years. During this time he became actively involved in the community of Redfield and with the SD Conference of the United Church of Christ. Election to the Board of Trustees of YC in 1980 was soon followed by being awarded the Honorary Doctor of Divinity Degree by his alma mater in 1982.

Yet another call to service came from Fort Dodge, Iowa, in 1987 where Paul expanded his influence into the National Board for Homeland Ministries of the UCC and then, in 1998, Paul and Marley Ann received the long-awaited call to the UCC Church in Yankton. Firmly ensconced in the environment in which they’d met and married and closer to their children and families, Paul continued his loyal endeavors on behalf of Yankton College, always with Marley Ann by his side. His official “retirement” provided the opportunity for Paul to become a vital part of the YC Legacy Committee, which was already searching for a permanent home for the College, the alumni and the historical recounting of the work begun by Dr. Joseph and Sarah (Wood) Ward. He helped develop the “Yankton College Forever!” plan with a hands-on approach that bore great fruit.

Thirty-six years passed in the “twinkling of an eye.” Paul and Marley Ann agreed that they would distance themselves from Yankton by just a few miles, and began residence at the Dow Rummel Village in Sioux Falls where they would find other pastors waiting to welcome them into an established community.

Perhaps Paul and Marley Ann had heard this comment by Elisabeth Foley — “The most beautiful discovery true friends make is that they can grow separately without growing apart.”

We bless their past and future work for the glory of God.

We have outgrown each of the two places we've met at in one way or another. Now we are off to our 3rd venue, which we hope to establish as a more permanent location. This new building will provide us a place to gather for worship and fellowship among other awesome things 24 hours-a-day, 7 days-a-week! ....or whenever someone is there to unlock the doors. ;-)

It is our hope and prayer that you will join us for our first service at this new location where we hope to worship The Lord together, serve each other, and grow spiritually.

Aug 1    Lewis and Clark Lake sedimentation topic of BYU researcher’s presentation in Yankton


Missouri Sedimentation Action Coalition PO Box 2 Springfield, SD 57062 605-661-1594 www.msaconline.com msaconline@gmail.com Office: 100 Douglas, Ste 103, Yankton, SD

News Release – July 12, 2016

Lewis and Clark Lake sedimentation topic of BYU researcher’s presentation in Yankton August 1

Finding the keys to sustain a reservoir like Lewis and Clark Lake not only involves engineering but also an economic framework to put solutions into action. Brigham Young University professor of civil and environmental engineering, Rollin Hotchkiss, will speak to both of those sedimentation issues at a public meeting beginning at 10:30 a.m., Monday, August 1, at The Landing, 104 Capital St., in downtown Yankton.

This meeting is hosted by the Missouri Sedimentation Action Coalition, a nonprofit organization dedicated to educating the public about the sedimentation problems in and around the Missouri River reservoirs. Hotchkiss has researched the cost benefit analysis approach and its shortcomings. At the Yankton meeting, he will relate that information to Gavins Point and Lewis and Clark Lake.

Hotchkiss has authored more than 150 papers and reports dealing with topics such as determining peak flows in watersheds and turbulence in natural channels and culverts. He also co-authored "Conversion of a Missouri River Dam and Reservoir to a Sustainable System: Sediment Management" with University of South Dakota researchers Howard E. Coker and Dennis A. Johnson in 2008. The article was published in


the Journal of the American Water Resources Association.
