Scotties' Volleyball

The Philip Scotties volleyball team won at Lyman on October 14. The scores were 25-18, 25-17 and 25-7. The team’s record is currently 22-5.

Head coach for the Scotties is Kim Foley and the assistant coach is RaeAnn Snyder.


Cross country qualifies for state meet

The long trips to cross country meets are often spent sleeping or studying. On the last trip, no one slept and the only studies were recent race results. The Scotties worked on race strategies which would prove to be very successful. All seven varsity entries qualified for the 2004 State Cross Country Meet and all three junior varsity runners placed within the top six in their respective divisions.

The first races were the elementary runs which gave a glimpse of the future of cross country at Philip High School. Holly Iwan, fourth grader, raced in the girls’ run.


Scotties freeze out the Rebels

Launch away … Anthony Kinsley fires a pass as his Rebel offense tries to hold back the oncoming Scotties. The cold weather did not slow the back-and-forth game, which ended with Philip defeating Jones County-Midland 22-12.

The Philip Scotties defeated the Jones County/Midland Rebels last Friday evening 22-12 in Murdo.

The first half was a freeze-out for the Rebels. With only 31 seconds left in the first quarter, the Philip Scotties got on the scoreboard when Brit Miller ran the ball the one yard needed for the first touchdown. The extra-point conversion was runin for a score of 8-0. With 4:57 remaining in the first half, Dana Kerns ran 47 yards for the Scotties’ second touchdown.


Cold times …

I hate the cold.

People think I’m weird when I soften up ice-cream in the microwave. I save money by drinking pop off the store shelf instead of from a pop machine. I dry my hands after de-hooking a fish, not for cleanliness but because the water is cold. One of my hobbies is hiking up hills because, hey, isn’t heat supposed to rise?

Winter has very few good points. I am a deadly shot with snowballs, then my hands freeze and my kids get revenge.


To the Editor,

To the Editor,

We write to encourage bi-partisan support for Amendment A authorizing merit selection of circuit judges and for retention elections.

If passed, Amendment A would require an evaluation process that will inform the public in advance of an election as to how a judge is performing in the office. A committee of respected judges and lawyers of this state have been charged with the responsibility of recommending an evaluation model.

Our state’s judges have to be independent, fair and impartial.


Dear Editor,

On October 5th, my wife and I were among several residents of the Philip area who attended a “Stand for the Family Rally” in Rapid City. This rally featured Dr. James Dobson of Focus on the Family. It was reported that there were nearly 7,000 there.


Dispute on Bad River

Exact replicas of Lewis & Clark's boats seen here coming to tie up at the confluence of the Bad River and the Missouri at Ft. Pierre. (see more photos in photo gallery section)

With a splash of history and color, hundreds of people witnessed the re-enactment of the meeting of the Plains Indians with Lewis & Clark Expedition at the mouth of the Bad River near Ft. Pierre. At the original meeting, 200 years ago, there were no television crews and national press to meet them, so details of that event have been in some dispute ever since.

The Expedition had been on the road awhile before it reached what is now Ft. Pierre, South Dakota, and, as they made their way up the Missouri River, it is alleged they encountered hostile Indians.


Dispute on Bad River

Eugene Little, age 2, is a like a lot of Native American kids, sorta shy when they first get to a big city – and Ft. Pierre is very big to them. This boy felt more secure in the hands of his sister, at least for awhile.
