BUFFALO, S.D. — In the last few weeks up in windswept Harding County, sheriff's deputies have driven down long, dirt roads to serve court papers to landowners, announcing whether they like it or not, TransCanada would be running an oil pipeline onto their land.
But at least one South Dakota landowner isn't relenting yet.
"I'm ready to take this all the way to court," said Jeffrey Jensen, of rural Harding County, by phone on Thursday. "I got nothing to lose. Wouldn't bother me in the least."
