December 14th

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, 2006

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.
