Golf course's "new" clubhouse in place

The new Lake Waggoner Golf Course clubhouse building is now on its foundation.

According to club board member Glenn Parsons, several years ago a club committee investigated both the old building's need for repairs and the club's need for more building space. The old building is constructed of deteriorating cinder block, the roof and many rafters need to be replaced, and the floor is beginning to break apart. Repair would be too expensive.


Nelson lung transplant update and future fundraising

Jenn is a Midland teenager who requires a double lung transplant. The Kadoka Lutheran Confirmation class, the Future Business Leaders of America, and other community members assisted with the free will offering event. The supper raised $2,365 to assist with transplant related expenses. Total costs for just the double lung transplant operation range from $300,000 to $500,000. Extraneous expanses such as transportation and lodging for the family, and follow-up medical care are added expenses.

The Philip FCCLA chapter is selling Christmas stockings in honor of Jenn.


Keyser shares recollections of life on the ranch

Dale Keyser at the last roundup of Erma and Earl Gabriel’s in 1987.

Longtime rancher Dale Keyser was born on February 1, 1919, on his family's ranch in northwestern Haakon County. Keyser says his birth is recorded as February 12, because that was the day his father hitched up the team to go to Philip for supplies. When his father got to the courthouse in Philip, the birth was recorded as the current date.

Keyser is the youngest of six children born to Clarence and Effie Keyser. He went to the Roosevelt School for nine years and had six weeks of high school. He left school to help at home.

Dog's life

We refer to dogs in a confusing manner. If you work hard, you work like a dog, then you become dog-tired. Not working is being lazy as a dog. When feeling oppressed, you lead a dog's life. When really dressing up, you are putting on the dog. Bill collectors dog my footsteps. Young love is called puppy love. There are bird dogs, hot dogs and underdogs. A thunderstorm is said to be raining cats and dogs. Watchdogs do not tell the time. Sheep dogs are not wooly. Cattle dogs do not say "Moo". You walk some dogs, and some dogs walk you.

If you have a dog that snaps, name it Ginger.
