  • Oops.
    A Black Hills Energy employee had to have thought that, when he punctured a gas line while probing for its where-abouts in Palmyra Tuesday.
    People who lived in a two-block radius around the resulting leak near Apple and D Streets had to be evacuated.
    Sheriff's vehicles, Palmyra Fire Department and Palmyra Rescue units cordoned off the area and stood by while utility workers dug up the line and sealed it off.
    As elementary children got off the bus, parents met them and escorted them to the Senior Center where they waited until they got the all-clear a few hours later.
