The Wrap: The Week in Review
Here's a few things that the Big Breakfast was talking about throughout the week
- More than 5 million iPhone 5s were sold in the first three days they were on sale last week, besting last year's record set by the last iPhone, but some analysts are disappointed.The problem stems from demand for the new phone exceeding the initial supply, which is causing delays from some online orders.
- The controversy surrounding the NFL's replacement referees reached a boiling point Monday night when the refs seemingly gave the game to the Seattle Seahawks in their last minute 14-12 upset of the Green Bay Packers. Eventually the replacement refs ruled it was a touchdown, giving the Seahawks the game.
- A 22-year-old Sioux Falls man is dead after falling off the roof of a building on Avera McKennan's campus in central Sioux Falls. Police say Joshua Keith Obenauer was washing windows at the Prairie Center when the accident happened at 12:30 p.m. Saturday. He was working alone at the time. Obenauer worked for High Rise Enterprises, Inc. (KDLT-TV)
- Our Facebook page did a little viral dance earlier this week when we posted a pic of our last pair of tickets to the Eric Church, Kip Moore, and Justin Moore concert. We appreciate every single new friend we've made along the way. More great concert news and chances to win coming soon.
- The Sioux Falls city 'Driving and Texting' ban went into effect on Friday. It will carry a hefty $95 fine for offenders according to Sioux Falls police officer Craig Slaven. Parents, talk to your teens about the dangers of distracted driving. The #1 question on the Big Breakfast?
Can I text or check email while at a stoplight?"

- Minneapolis, Mn. police were dispatched Thursday afternoon to a sign company, Signage Systems Incorporated, on the north side of the city. Officials say a shooter opened fire killing 4 people then himself.
- Opening Day for pheasant hunting is October 20th and the season continues until Jan. 6, 2013. According to a recent Game, Fish and Parks 2012 Outlook , pheasant numbers are up 18% statewide. Jeff Vonk, secretary of the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks:
Pheasant hunting will be good across most of the state, with the traditional pheasant range once again providing excellent hunting opportunities. More than 1.5 million pheasants were harvested last year, and our counts indicate that this year will be another exceptional year for pheasant hunting in South Dakota."
- Oh, where did I put that thing? A Powerball ticket sold in Sioux Falls is worth $40,000 following the September 26, 2012 drawing. The lucky ticket holder matched four of five white ball numbers and the Powerball to hit the game's $10,000 third prize but because they had purchased the Power Play option on their ticket, the prize is multiplied to $40,000.
