I'd like to begin by introducing myself to readers of the Great Plains Sociologist. My name is Laura Colmenero-Chilberg. I am a Professor of Sociology at Black Hills State University in Spearfish, SD. I've been involved with the Great Plains Sociological Association and its publication since the 1990's when I was a doctoral student at South Dakota State University.

Another new element for GPS is the starting of a thematically focused issue during the summer. We will start this next summer with a special issue that will focus on the impact of the Bakken on the region. If you have ideas for themes for these special issues, please let us know!

This issue provides us with some very interesting articles. …
