Oil crew man camps materializing in western SD


       BELLE FOURCHE, S.D. (AP) _ Large camps built to house oil field workers have become a common site in western North Dakota. Now they're starting to materialize in western South Dakota.
       The Black Hills Pioneer reports that two applications for crew camps are being processing in Harding County, one has been submitted in Meade County, and the Butte County Commission has scheduled a special meeting in mid-December to consider ordinances regulating camps in case they materialize there.
       The two proposed camps in Harding County both are near Buffalo. Each would have about 1,200 people working on the proposed Keystone XL pipeline, which is still awaiting federal approval.
