                         HERMOSA, SOUTH DAKOTA

 Mr. THUNE. Mr. President, today I recognize Hermosa, SD. The 
town of Hermosa will commemorate the 125th anniversary of its founding 
this year.
  Located in Custer County in western South Dakota, Hermosa was founded 
in 1886 and was named after the Spanish word meaning ``beautiful'' 
because of its breathtaking landscape. Today, Hermosa's rich history, 
strong traditions and beautiful scenery continue to make it a great 
place to live.
  Hermosa has been a successful and thriving community for the past 125 
years, and I am confident that it will continue to serve as an example 
of South Dakota values and traditions. I would like to offer my 
congratulations to the citizens of Hermosa on this landmark date and 
wish them continued prosperity in the years to come.
