Tommy Dale Vines – Cowboy Returns to the Saddle

Tommy Dale Vines, Eagle Butte,  is featured in the 2019 Madonna Rehabilitation Hospital calendar.  As most all of us will remember, TDV was critically injured in a cowboy/horse incident in 2016. The Vines family spent an extended period of time in Lincoln, NE, for Tommy’s rehabilitation.  Through the efforts of the staff at Madonna and Tommy’s will to get back in the saddle, he has returned to riding and getting back to life and all of it’s possibilities knowing full-well that he truly has been given a second chance.  Good on ya, Cowboy, Jeri Ann, Miranda, and RaeLynn.

Owner of Brainerd International Raceway dies off the coast of Florida

   Jed Copham, Brainerd International Raceway                                         

The body of a missing boater found Monday, Nov. 12, was identified by family as Jed Copham, owner of Brainerd International Raceway. NBC2 News in Florida was reporting that the Lee County Sheriff’s Office removed the body from the water near Punta Rassa. Search and rescue teams temporarily suspended their efforts to find the boater Sunday night after he had gone overboard earlier in the day. The call to suspend the search came hours after law enforcement swarmed the waters off the coast of Lee County, near Punta Rassa, around 3 p.m. Sunday. Lee County deputies haven’t released details on how the boater went overboard. Witnesses, however, said an anchored yacht seemed to be the center of the search. Crime scene tape blocked off the Punta Rassa boat ramp while others on the water were being directed away from the area of concern, witnesses said.

Copham and his wife, Kristi, purchased the 600-acre BIR complex in 2006 from Sports International Inc. of Michigan which had owned the facilty since 1994.

Jed Copham, owner of Brainerd International Raceway, died Sunday after falling overboard from a yacht in Florida. The Lee County Sheriff’s Office said authorities responded to the Sanibel Causeway to reports of a man overboard. After an extensive search that went late into the night, 46-year-old Copham’s body was recovered Monday morning from the water at Punta Rassa boat ramp. The investigation is ongoing, but police say the accident does not appear to be criminal.
