Dr. George Mangulis honored for 50 years of service to Philip

A grand celebration is scheduled to honor Dr. George J. Mangulis and his continuing service to the Philip community. Dr. Mangulis will have served as a doctor in Philip for 50 years as of March 5th. This is not a retirement party; he plans on staying active for quite a long time.

The celebration will be from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. in the Fine Arts Building at the Philip High School on Saturday, March 5.

“We are honoring Dr. G. J. Mangulis, but he honors all physicians, especially those who stay in a small community.” said David Dick, CEO of Philip Health Services.

Not perfect, but …

Ready, set, go. The S.D. state bird is the mosquito. The S.D. state tree is the telephone pole. The S.D. state animal is whatever is in the crockpot. The S.D. state flower died. We don’t live at the edge of the world, but you can see it from the water tower. We have people who have studied for, but flunked, blood tests. Our hunting accident victims might survive better, if someone doesn’t field dress them. We always wave at passing motorists, because we might not see anyone else for hours.

Are you among the "contented"?

I don't personally know the "contented" resident of Brookings County who says she is opposed to every 200-cow dairy in the region. She writes letters to prospective dairy buyers telling them the land here is occupied by "comfortable" and "contented" people, whose hallmark is we have "enough" and we don't want you or your economic benefits here.

I have read one of her letters. She is an eloquent and persuasive writer who uses every tool available except logic to win her arguments.

House Concurrent Resolution 1001 passed out of the House of Representatives and is up for consideration in the Senate. This bill requests that the Department of Agriculture re-impose the ban on the importation of Canadian cattle.

To the Editor:

Dear Editor,

After Martin Luther King Day let US reflect - what was and is the “civil rights movement” and why are civil rights important?

We all believe that we are entitled to them, and they loosely mean “I” have liberty to use, access, and enjoy the common things and activities that “ALL” the rest of society enjoys, uses, and accesses.
