rounding area home.
Fees joined the Conservation
Officer team in 2012. Ross grew
up in the Hot Springs, SD and
graduated from Hot Springs High
School. He attended the Univer-
sity of Wyoming in Laramie

If you have any questions or
just want to say hello, you can
reach Ross at 605-967-2882 or the
TIP’s hotline at 1-888-683-7224,
or stop in to his office located in
the Police Department. If his
pickup is there, he’s there.
Ross shares this quote: “Here is
your country. Cherish these natu-
ral wonders, cherish the natural
resources, cherish the history and
romance as a sacred heritage, for
your children and your children’s
children. Do not let selfish men or
greedy interests skin your country
of its beauty, its riches or its ro-
mance.” ~ Theodore Roosevelt

Military Physician Assistant
Irwin Fish presented the Faith
Ambulance with an Oregon Spine
Splint II. Fish, who is a PA in the
IHS Hospital Emergency Room in
Eagle Butte, won this splint in a
raffle a few years ago and never
did anything with it. After meet-
ing several of the Faith EMTs in
the Emergency Room, he decided
this was the group that he
Faith Ambulance receives Oregon Spine Splint
by Loretta Passolt
wanted to donate this item to.
The unit provides for safe re-
moval of patients from injury
sights, as automobile accidents,
without doing further damage to
the spine, and for transporting by
ambulance or air flight. The
unique criss-crossing shoulder
strap immobilizes without re-
stricting breathing and, for clavi-
cal fractures, can be re-configured
to retract and immobilize the
shoulders. The unit is designed to
provide easy access to the pa-
tient's chest or abdominal area for
treatment or diagnostic proce-
dures, and can be used in place of
a conventional short backboard
and as a hip or leg splint.
Fish told the Faith EMTs to
use the device in good health.
Hopefully the team won’t have to
use it often, but are very thankful
to have it.

Beryl R. Veal, 85, life-long
Meadow area rancher, passed
from this world into the arms of
his Heavenly Father on Tuesday,
August 13, 2013. A celebration of
his life took place on Saturday,
August 17, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. at
Indian Creek Lutheran Church
with Pastor Dana Lockhart offici-
ating.
Serving as pall bearers were
his grandchildren: Brandon,
Ryan and Aaron Bourdon; Josh
and Jason Veal; Stephen and
Christine O’Neil. Special music
was provided by Todd Buer.
Beryl Ralph Veal was deliv-
ered by Dr. Walker on September
7, 1927 in Bison, South Dakota to
Virgil and Christine (Schweitzer)
Veal. He was baptized into the
Catholic Church on February 12,
1928 in Glencross, South Dakota.
He lived the first six years of his
life on a ranch in Lone Tree
Township in Perkins County with
his parents and younger sister,
Shirley. (Only 15 months
younger, Shirley adored her
brother and they remained close
their entire lives.) Grandma
Christine said he was always a
determined and independent
child and his first complete sen-
tence was, “I will do it myself.”
In 1932, Virgil began buying
land in Ada Township where the
family established the VTV
Ranch. This would be Beryl’s
home for the rest of his life and he
worked tirelessly alongside his
parents to build and expand the
operation. He became a full part-
ner in the ranch while still in
high school. There were constant
challenges through the years as
they endured the harsh condi-
tions of the 1930s, the loss of the
first ranch house to fire and the
long hours and back-breaking
work of everyday ranch life.
Beryl began elementary school
at the Lone Tree School and after
they moved to the present ranch
site he attended Ada School,
along with his sister, Shirley. He
attended high school in Bison
where he worked for room and
board at the local grocery store.
When Beryl was 18 he
achieved his dream of becoming a
pilot. He had just soloed for the
first time when his life changed
forever. He was stricken with
polio mellitus on October 14,
1946. He was flown to Rochester
two days later where he spent the
next nearly two years recovering
from the disease and preparing
for a life that was very different
from the one he had planned.
When he left the hospital in the
spring of 1948, his doctor advised
him to get a wheelchair because
he would never walk again.
After returning home, Beryl
continued to farm and ranch with
his parents, doing everything he
could from a wheelchair or on a
tractor. The polio had left him
with only one arm that was unaf-
fected and he learned to run a
hand clutch, hand brake and con-
trol a loader and other hydraulics,
all with one arm.
On July 24, 1948 Beryl and his
long-time girlfriend, Margaret
Nilsen, were married in the
Lutheran church in Lemmon.
They lived and worked together
with his parents on the ranch for
the next few years until once
again unforeseeable tragedy
struck the family. In February of
1952, Virgil passed away after a
short battle with cancer and at
the young age of 46.
Devastated by the loss of his
dad, Beryl, with his wife and
mother at his side, continued to
run the ranch. They constantly
worked at improving the ranch
and increasing production.
He loved the land and farmed
it with great pride in caring for
the soil and preserving it for fu-
ture generations. Beryl never felt
he needed a written contract. He
always kept his word and he ex-
pected the same from those he
dealt with. He treated others as
he wanted to be treated.
Beryl kept accurate and exten-
sive accounting records of the
business, all by hand in a ledger
book. He could look back through
“the book” and find any informa-
tion that was needed, usually in a
fairly short amount of time!
Beryl found his true partner in
life when he met Margie in 1944.
They traveled through life for 65
years together working side by
side to care for God’s land, His an-
imals and raising a family. Life
took them down many paths
building a strong faith and foun-
dation of unconditional love for
each other.
Beryl and Margie were blessed
with three children: Colleen
Marie, born in 1951; Gregory
Scott, who joined the group in
1955; and Kandi Kae completed
the family in 1961. He was an ex-
cellent role model for his children,
grandchildren and great-grand-
children. He taught by example
as he lived a life of determination
and self-sufficiency in spite of any
hardships or set-backs. Beryl was
a man of great honesty and trust
- traits which he also passed on to
the next generations.
After his marriage in 1948,
Beryl began attending church at
Indian Creek Lutheran and he
and his mother eventually left the
Catholic Church to become mem-
bers there. He served for many
years on the Chance Cemetery
Board, the church council and
was a supervisor on the Ada
Township Board.
With his leadership, the VTV
Ranch was awarded the Perkins
Beryl R. Veal
County Conservation District
Tree Award and a few years later,
the Soil Conservation Award. Re-
cently the ranch received recogni-
tion as Master Lamb Producers.
Beryl loved to travel the rustic
roads and see new places. He also
enjoyed visiting and truly never
met a stranger. He constantly
strived to see the best in every-
one. He took every opportunity to
learn from those around him and
wanted to know your life story.
Always curious about under-
standing new technology, he en-
joyed having an iPad and keeping
up with family and friends on
Facebook.
Beryl first learned to cook dur-
ing his days in the sheep camp.
Cornbread was his specialty. He
enjoyed the community of a full
table of people eating together
and sharing conversation. Along
with cooking, he loved to eat (es-
pecially Margie’s pickles) and had
an immense curiosity for new
food experiences.
A man of great faith, he loved
the Lord and he loved life. He was
grateful for every day he was
given on earth. Beryl was a faith-
ful and loving husband, father,
grandfather, great-grandfather,
son, brother, neighbor and friend.
He passed from this world with
his family by his side at the West
River Regional Medical Center in
Hettinger, North Dakota, on
Tuesday, August 13 at the age of
85 years, 11 months and 7 days.
Left to mourn his passing are
his wife of 65 years, Margaret of
Meadow, SD; his children and
their families: Colleen and hus-
band Jerry Bourdon, Circle Pines,
MN; Brandon and his son,
Chance Bourdon, of Rosemont,
MN; Ryan Bourdon and Brittney
Nelson-Cheeseman of St. Paul,
MN and Aaron and Stephanie
Bourdon of Chaska, MN; Greg
and his wife, Marsha, of Meadow;
Josh and Amy Veal and their chil-
dren Caitlyn, Mason and Peyton
of Warsaw, Poland; Jason Veal
and Amy Lukken of Madison, WI;
Kandi and her husband Dan
O’Neil of Saukville, WI; Stephen
and MaryBeth Fischer of Fredo-
nia, WI; Christine O’Neil,
Saukville, WI; his only sister,
Shirley Veal, who is currently liv-
ing with her daughter in
Ridgeview, SD; one niece, Diane
(Jim) Fried of Ridgeview.
Waiting for Beryl at heaven’s
gate were his parents, Virgil and
Christine, who preceded him in
death.
A memorial has been estab-
lished to the West River Regional
Medical Center in Hettinger, ND.

South Dakota State Fair – A
trend of success
It’s that time of year again
when the leaves are about to
turn, the days get shorter and our
kids go back to school. But before
the summer ends, families are in-
vited to attend the South Dakota
State Fair from Aug. 29 to Sept. 2
in Huron.
For the last six years, the State
Fair has charted a consistent
trend of success, with year-over-
year increases in virtually all
areas. Since 2006, attendance has
increased an incredible 44 per-
cent, from 133,000 to more than
192,000, and with good weather,
we may set another all-time
record in 2013.
Once again, all of the 1,300-
plus campsites will be full, vendor
spaces are sold-out and exhibit
numbers continue to be strong.
As always, there will be plenty
of things to see and do.
Come enjoy music and other
entertainment on six different
free stages and the grandstand.
Bring your kids to the pig races or
the FFA animal nursery. Stroll
over for some cotton candy or go
on a carnival ride. Test your skill
in the arm wrestling competition,
the hot dog eating contest or the
beef and chili cook-offs.
Experience a taste of the Old
West at the bull riding and cow-
boy mounted shooting events.
Grab a cold one in the beer gar-
den and wine pavilion, or remi-
nisce with an old friend on a
trolley ride around the grounds.
Of course, don’t forget to sup-
port tomorrow’s leaders – our 4-H
and FFA members – by viewing
their static projects and livestock
exhibits.
You can check out the full
schedule of events online at
www.sdstatefair.com.
As part of the Fair’s continuing
improvement efforts, the State
Fair Foundation and 4-H are
partnering on a $4 million capital
campaign to construct a new,
multi-use 4-H Exhibition Hall to
replace the old Clover Hall.
This project will provide space
to showcase the hard work of our
young people and engage them in
hands-on learning activities. It
will also help students prepare for
careers in engineering, manufac-
turing, mechanics and agricul-
ture – jobs that are available now
and that will be in ever-greater
demand in the coming years. The
project is supported entirely by
private donations; to contribute
or find out more, please call 605-
353-7340.
I am proud of Manager Jerome
Hertel and the Department of
Agriculture who have done a
great job of building the Fair into
one of South Dakota’s premier
events. Come experience this con-
tinuing trend of success by bring-
ing your family to the starry
nights and midway lights of the
South Dakota State Fair. I hope
to see you there!
The Faith Stock Show rodeo
queen contest was held on Satur-
day, August 10th, with 14 con-
testants vying in three age
divisions. The day started at 8
AM with a meeting at the Com-
munity Legion Hall; the contest-
ants then either went to the
arena for horsemanship or stayed
at the Community Legion Hall for
interviews. The reigning queens,
contestants, and three visiting
queens rode in the morning pa-
rade; some of the contestants
then went for horsemanship and
some went for interviews. Lunch
was served at the Community Le-
gion Hall; modeling was held at 2
PM. The day ended with corona-
tion during the evening rodeo per-
formance at the Faith fairgrounds
arena.
Rae Lynn Vines, 8-year-old
daughter of Jeri Ann and Tommy
Vines of Eagle Butte, is the 2013
Little Miss Queen; she also won
the horsemanship division. First
runner-up is Tobi Hintz, the 8-
year-old daughter of Marty Jo
and Tom Peterson of Aberdeen.
Second runner-up is Skylar Vig,
the 8-year-old daughter of Justin
and Mellissa Vig of Faith. The
other two contestants were
TyAnn Mortenson, the 7-year-old
daughter of Lee and Alysha
Mortenson of Faith, and Cody
Rose Winkler, 4-year-old daugh-
ter of Paul and Cheyenne Winkler
of Newell.
Jacqueline Van Vleet, 13-year-
old daughter of Dwayne and
Wanda Van Vleet of Moorcroft,

Queen. First runner-up, horse-
manship winner, and Miss Con-
geniality winner is Tyler Hintz,
the 13-year-old daughter of Marty
Searching for economic recovery
It was three years ago that the
Obama administration dubbed
the summer of 2010 the “summer
of recovery.” Three years later,
many Americans are still search-
ing for recovery as our economy
continues to struggle under the
weight of stagnant economic
growth, high unemployment, and
dwindling household income. Na-
tional unemployment remains
well above 7 percent, while the
economy grew by just 1.7 percent
in the second quarter. The me-
dian household income has
dropped by more than $2,700
since June of 2009, yet health
care premiums for American fam-
ilies have skyrocketed by nearly
$2,500.
As premiums continue to rise
throughout the country, and busi-
nesses reduce the number of em-
ployee hours, it has become
increasingly clear that the presi-
dent’s signature health care law
is crushing jobs and economic
growth. According to a recent sur-
vey conducted by Gallup, 41 per-
cent of small businesses owners
have said they have held off on
hiring new employees and 38 per-
cent have pulled back on plans to
grow their business due to Oba-
maCare. According to Labor De-
partment data reported by CNN
Money, “The number of Ameri-
cans finding part-time jobs has
surged this year, with more than
four times as many getting only
part-time work as opposed to full-
time jobs.” In South Dakota, the
South Dakota Division of Insur-
ance recently published the ex-
change rates for 2014, and it
appears that individual plans on
the exchange will be significantly
higher.
Instead of expending time and
resources on the implementation
of ObamaCare, the Obama ad-
ministration should be working
with Congressional Republicans
to enact pro-growth policies that
simulate the economy, including
comprehensive tax reform. Rev-
enue neutral comprehensive tax
reform is a critical way to in-
crease economic growth in our
country. Lower tax rates will en-
courage work and investment,
and will make America a more at-
tractive place to do business.
Well-designed tax reform can
even help reduce the deficit by in-
creasing economic growth.
In addition to tax reform, the
president should approve the con-
struction of the Keystone XL
pipeline, which has been waiting
for approval for nearly five years.
According to the Obama State De-
partment, which is responsible
for approving the pipeline, the
construction of Keystone XL
would support 42,000 jobs nation-
wide over a two year period. In
South Dakota, the pipeline would
result in significant economic
benefits including $470 million in
new spending for the South
Jo and Tom Peterson of Ab-
erdeen. Second runner-up is Mi-
randa Vines, the 11-year-old
daughter of Jeri Ann and Tommy
Vines of Eagle Butte. The other
contestants were Maria Roghair,
12-year old daughter of Brice and
Anne Roghair of Isabel; Alexis
Tilton, 12-year-old daughter of
Tony and Penny Tilton of Stick-
ney; and Cherokee Winkler, 14-
year-old daughter of Paul and
Cheyenne Winkler of Newell.
Nicole Boomsma of Stickney is
the 2013 Miss Faith Stock Show
queen, she also won horseman-
ship and Miss Congeniality. She
is the daughter of Kenny and
Patti Boomsma. Destiny Wesner,
daughter of Peggy Maliske and
Kelly Wesner of Newell, is first
runner-up. Victoria Hagg, daugh-
ter of Kent and Karin Hagg of
Rapid City, is second runner-up.
Dakota economy, and additional
state and local revenues of more
than $10 million.
Finally, the president should
rein in onerous regulations on the
business community. From 2009
to 2012, President Obama final-
ized $518 billion in new regula-
tions, which is more than the
combined gross domestic product
of Portugal and Norway. Just
since January 1, 2013, the federal
government has published $66
billion in compliance costs, and
81.2 million annual paperwork
burden hours.
It is time for America to start
down the road to economic recov-
ery, and that begins by enacting
comprehensive tax reform, ap-
proving the Keystone XL pipeline,
reining in burdensome regula-
tions, and permanently delaying
ObamaCare for all Americans.
Working together to promote
these policies and to cut spending
and debt, we can grow the econ-
omy and create jobs and opportu-
nity for American workers,
families, and small businesses.

A Meade County resident is
South Dakota’s first case of cy-
closporiasis, the Department of
Health reported today. 
Nationally, health officials are
investigating an outbreak of the
infection totaling 576 cases from
19 states, with most occurring in
June and July. The outbreak is
linked to a packaged salad mix
from a Mexico plant which has
suspended operation. It is not
clear whether all the cases are
from the same outbreak, includ-
ing South Dakota’s case.
Neighboring states Iowa and
Nebraska have borne the brunt of
the outbreak with 153 and 56
cases, respectively.
Cyclosporiasis is an intestinal
illness caused by the microscopic
parasite Cyclospora cayetanensis.
Infection can occur when people
consume food or water contami-
nated with the parasite. Symp-
toms include watery diarrhea,
with frequent bowel movements,
loss of appetite, weight loss, stom-
ach cramps/pain, bloating, in-
creased gas, nausea and fatigue.
Vomiting, body aches, headache,
fever and other flu-like symptoms
may also occur. The illness can
last a month or longer if not
treated.
South Dakota last reported a
case of cyclosporiasis in 2008.
More information about cy-
closporiasis infection and the out-
break can be found at
http://www.cdc.gov/parasites/cy-
closporiasis/.
Responding to current and
emerging public health threats is
one objective of the department’s
Health 2020 initiative.
South Dakota reports first
Cyclosporiasis case
We remained on the cool side
all of last week, only in the 70s
mostly and much cooler at night.
We had a little thunderstorm
move through here last Tuesday
evening but it only dropped about
.20” according to the official gauge
at the airport. We’ve woken to fog
several mornings. Saturday we fi-
nally warmed up into the 90s and
sounds like it will stay that way
this week.
Tim Lutz and his two daugh-
ters, Kristen and Dana, from
Tulsa, Oklahoma were visiting at
the Lutz Ranch. They left for
home last Saturday.
Eldora Fishcbach went to
Rapid City last Friday. She gave
a quilting demonstration at the
Central States Fair on Saturday.
Dave stayed home to trail his cat-
tle to town on Saturday for the
sale on Monday. She returned
home Monday to watch their cat-
tle sell at Faith Livestock.
Lyle and Arlene Beebe left for
their home in Diamondville, WY
last week after spending several
weeks here over the summer.
Garnet Gaaskjolen spent sun-
day at the Keith and Roxi
Gaaskjolen ranch. After a nice
meal at noon, they enjoyed ice
cream and birthday cake to cele-
brate little Eli’s 1st birthday. He
is the son of Vanden and Sarah
Gaaskjolen. Zachary and Jeny
Gaaskjolen and son Clayton from
Stanley, ND also attended the
party. They were on their way
back home after attending a wed-
ding in the Hills.
Garnet Gaaskjolen and Betty
Walker attended the Singspira-
tion at Coal Springs Community
Church Sunday evening.
Gordie and Kathy Collins had
visitors arrive last Monday. Tim
and Sandra Lehtinen from Win-
nipeg, Manitoba spent several
days visiting. Kathy said they
were here six years ago when
they were stranded here for 2
weeks. At that time they became
familiar with some of the Faith
residents and even rode their
bikes in the Stock Show parade.
School doors opened this Mon-
day for the 2013-14 school year.
The summer flew by so fast!
Wishing the students and teach-
ers a great year.
Football, volleyball and cross
country practices all started last
week.
I read Vicky’s news for this
week and just wanted to comment
that the Rally was going on, too,
along with Stock Show, when
they were working on the road
east of town. It sure put traffic to
a stop on the highway in town.
You couldn’t cross the intersec-
tion at Main because of the line
sitting there waiting! I agree it
was a pretty dumb time to be
doing that! Don’t know why they
couldn’t have waited another
week.
Dear Editor
Thanks so much for putting the
articles in the Faith paper about
our granddaughter.  It was so nice
to read about it in the paper.
Also, I enjoyed reading about
cousin Linda (Dutton's)  grand-
daughter.  It is nice to read about
the cousins and the Austin family
members. Cousins are Dutton
and  Deknikker  famlies.
Thanks again,
Georgia  Collins

Wednesday, Harold and I were
shopping in Bismarck, North
Dakota. Shopping for a corn head
for his combine that is. On our
journey there we visited with
Adele and Denver Enright in
Timber Lake.
Thursday, I kept an appoint-
ment at the heart doctors in
Rapid City. We ate dinner at Fri-
day’s before driving to Marvin
and Norma Williams’ home near
Owanka. Norma was home from
the Spearfish hospital where she
had knee replacement surgery on
Monday. She is getting around
with the help of a walker. She
starts physical therapy Friday.
O'Deas enjoyed most of the
Faith Stock Show last week. The
community was certainly in-
volved.
Monday, Susan O'Dea and
Mary Deichert came from
Spearfish and Tuesday morning
Sheryl and Jamie Schweitzer
came from Gillette to help Jim
and Vonnie O'Dea with cattle
working. Wednesday, all the
above plus Vonnie O'Dea and
Amy Deichert, went to visit at
Colemans and then to Wall, being
tourists, and then to the Bad-
lands. It was a good "girls day
out"!
Sheryl and Jamie Schweitzer
left Thursday morning for Rapid
City to the dentist and then on
home. Susan O'Dea left later and
Mary Deichert left on Friday after
enjoying the steak fry with her
grandparents at Union Center.
Amy Deichert headed to
Chadron State College after din-
ner on Sunday. She will be a Jr.
and is working on her teachers
degree. Amy took her 2 horses
and will be on the rodeo team.
All's quiet after a busy summer at
O'Deas.
Tonight I saw an article on the
internet about a man in Bolivia
who is 123 years old. He is a poor
farmer who has herded sheep and
cattle most of his life. He eats
mutton, which is a red meat and
chews coca leaf, a mild stimulant
to stave off hunger. To top it off he
walks without a cane and doesn’t
wear glasses! Now who says rural
living isn’t the way to go!
Tucker and Bev Hudson,
Sharon and Joy Keffeler traveled
to St. Paul, MN over the weekend
to attend the wedding of their
cousin’s daughter. While there
they visited their cousins, Jim
Kasal, Margaret McMonigal, and
Cathy Flanagan and familes.
They returned home Monday.
Congratulations to Winston
Brown on being Reserve Cham-
pion All Around Jr. Boy at the

I left out several items in last
week’s column so here goes my
forgotten items.
What in the world was the
State transportation Department
thinking when they had road
work going on in Faith at the be-
ginning of Stock Show celebra-
tion? We all know they would
never do that to the “Rally.” We
are always hearing about “safety
concerns.” So how about some
concern for the safety of our local
people who pay the #$%#@ taxes.
Carv, I believe we need you to
give someone what for over this
poor planning or error in judge-
ment!
A former Marcus and Faith
area resident, LaJuan Joyce, age
85, passed away August 5 at Fort
Stockton, Texas. LaJuan and
Weldon first came to the area as
newlyweds, living in a cabin
along Thunder Butte Creek north
of Faith. Later they worked for
R.L. Bland and lived on the Bland
Ranch northwest of Marcus. La-
Juan lived in Faith during the
school year when her daughters
reached high school age. Weldon,
LaJuan and family moved back to
Texas in the late 60’s where they
both lived out their lives. LaJuan
is survived by 3 daughters, Linda
(Gene) Cole, Sue (Tom) Fletcher,
and Jan (Jim) Gresham and nu-
merous grandchildren. I will al-
ways remember LaJuan as a
gracious, classy Southern lady.
Sympathy goes out to the family.
I’ve mentioned my visiting
aunts several times in the past
two weeks columns. My Aunt
Ruth, age 91 of Reno, Nevada told
us a story that I would like to
share and see if we can find the
mystery man. I’m not sure if it
was Christmas Day 1977 or
Christmas Eve of that year but
she was caught in a sandstorm
crossing the Mohave Dessert and
was forced to spend the night at a
shelter in Hatchipi, California.
That night or the next morning
they were all told they could use
the payphone in the lobby to
make one call. As we all do, peo-
ple were talking in line while they
waited their turn. Ruth said she
heard a man behind her saying he
had left Philip, South Dakota the
day before with a semi trailer
load of cattle headed for Los An-
gelos. He needed to get the stock
unloaded, fed and watered. She
inquired if he knew Irvin Thomp-
son and he did. He said he had
stayed at Irvin’s home several
times. She has forgotten his
name. We were, of course, in-
trigued, and guessed truckers
names but none seemed to ring a
bell with her. Does anyone out
there know about this incident
and who the trucker might have
been? She said she’s spent a lot of
years wondering if he got the cat-
tle unloaded and fed that day.
Sympathy is extended to the
family of Norman Vansickel. Nor-

Grand River Roundup
By Betty Olson
Judging by the weather, you’d
swear we were living in Oregon or
Washington. We received æ of an
inch of rain this week and had fog
almost every day. I’ve been writ-
ing the foggy days down so we’ll
know when to expect that three or
four day blizzard in October. I
drove to Pierre Sunday afternoon
for an Executive Board meeting
early Monday and I’ve never seen
the prairie this green and lush in
August. It looks almost like Ire-
land!
Sen. John Thune held a Town
Hall meeting in Lemmon Monday
afternoon at the theater before a
nice sized crowd. Sen. Thune said
in order to get our economy back
on track Congress needs to repeal
ObamaCare, get government
spending under control, and re-
form the tax code. Questions and
comments from the audience fo-
cused on getting rid of Oba-
maCare, reducing the $17 trillion
national debt, remedies for fed-
eral land issues, and stopping the
federal governmentís intrusion
into our private lives.
We lost several folks from our
community this week. An old
neighbor of ours, 84-year-old
Elvin Boe, was killed in a two ve-
hicle crash just west of McIntosh
last Monday. We haven’t heard
about funeral arrangements.
Don Worm, 89, of Stevensville,
Montana passed away Thursday.
His funeral will be Tuesday at the
Whitesitt Funeral Home in
Stevensville.
Samuel Drolc, 90, died Friday
at his home in Belle Fourche and
his services will be Tuesday at the
Christian Life Center in Belle.
Gary Welch, 65, from Ludlow,
died Friday at the Rapid City Re-
gional Hospital. His memorial
service will be Wednesday at the
Rec Center in Buffalo with burial
at the Limpert Family Cemetery
south of Buffalo.
Their families have our sympa-
thy.
Verona Vroman had hip re-
placement surgery in Rapid City
Friday. Bill left a message on our
answering machine letting us
know that Verona’s surgery went
well and she should be dismissed
from the hospital soon.

Most of the county fairs in this
area were this week. Thursday I
drove down to the
Butte/Lawrence County Fair at
Nisland. Butte Electric and
Grand Electric fed us supper and
Rep. Fred Romkema and I helped
the Republicans hand out ice
cream to almost 1,300 people!
Reub and I went to Bison Fri-
day evening for the Perkins
County Fair and Grand Electric
fed us supper again. Tracy and
Todd Buer provided music and
entertainment at the talent show
after supper, with the able assis-
tance from their sister Pam An-
derson. Some pretty talented
people participated, making this
a very enjoyable evening. Casey
and the crew were up in the first
performance of the rodeo in Bison
on Saturday and then drove over
to Camp Crook for the Harding
County Fair rodeo on Sunday.
This weekend was Elaine Doll-
Dunn’s Leading Lady fashion
show and marathon in Spearfish.
For several years Stacy and Katie
Doll and Lanie and Bryce Olson
modeled at the fashion show, but
the Doll girls and Lanie couldn’t
make it this year, so Miss Bryce
went down on Saturday to repre-
sent the Grand River bunch at
the fashion show.
After listening to Sen. Thune
discuss the dire straits our econ-
omy is in I visited the national
debt website at www.usdebt-
clock.org and now I’m REALLY
worried. Evidently the exploding
deficit doesn’t bother our presi-
dent though. After the president’s
$100 million vacation to Africa in
June Obama and his family took
yet another expensive vacation to
Martha’s Vineyard last week.
While Congress is in the midst of
its own five-week break, people
are questioning why the presi-
dent is vacationing at the upscale
Massachusetts community at a
time when automatic cuts to the
federal budget have left the De-
fense Department and other
agencies furloughing employees.
Rep. Chris Stewart from Utah in-
troduced a resolution calling on
Obama to skip vacations until the
White House restored public
tours that have been mothballed
as a result of across-the-board
federal cuts known as sequestra-
tion, Pres. Obama’s proposal that
has caused some mindless cuts
that do nothing to reduce the
deficit. Pat John sent me this
story that illustrates sequestra-
tion’s ridiculousness:
A guy stopped at a local gas
station, and after filling his tank,
he paid the bill and bought a
Coke. He stood by his car to drink
his cola and watched a couple of
men working along the roadside.
One man would dig a hole two or
three feet deep and then move on.
The other man came along behind
him and filled in the hole. While
one was digging a new hole, the
other was 25 feet behind filling in
the hole.
The men worked right past the
guy with the Coke and went on
down the road. "I can't stand
this," said the man tossing the
can into a trash container and
headed down the road toward the
men. "Hold it, hold it," he said to
the men. "Can you tell me what's
going on here with all this digging
and refilling?"
"Well, we work for the govern-
ment and we're just doing our
job," one of the men said.
"But one of you is digging a
hole and the other fills it up.
You're not accomplishing any-
thing. Aren't you wasting the tax-
payers' money?"
"You don't understand, mis-
ter," one of the men said, leaning
on his shovel and wiping his
brow. "Normally there's three of
us: Me, Elmer and Leroy. I dig
the hole, Elmer sticks in the tree,
and Leroy here puts the dirt back.
You see with the government
sequestering, they are not buying
any more trees so Elmer's job's
been cut ... so now it's just me an'
Leroy.

When the sugar gets too low
“What would it feel like if my
blood sugar gets too low?” the pa-
tient asked. I had advised her to
watch out for hypoglycemia, or
low sugar, since it might happen
as a side effect of the new diabetic
medicine I was prescribing.
I explained to her when sugars
are low the body releases two res-
cue hormones in order to bring
the sugar up. However these life-
saving hormones cause symp-
toms.  Adrenalin brings cold
sweats, a light-headed nervous-
ness, butterflies, tremors, and a
pounding heart. Glucagon causes
a hungry-weak-uneasiness, nau-
sea, and headache. Also the brain
doesn’t work right when the
sugar is too low and this causes
irritability, blurry vision and con-
fusion.  If severely low, loss of con-
sciousness, seizures, and finally
permanent brain injury can re-
sult.
I remember having a similar
feeling as a high school student,
when I wasn’t well prepared and
was standing in front of a crowd
trying to play a trumpet solo by
memory. My sugar wasn’t low;
rather, I was filled with adrenalin
because I was so worried that I
would forget the notes. But the
feeling was the same: my heart
was in my throat, sweat was
pouring off my brow, and I was
shaking like a leaf.
This same “fight or flight” feel-
ing from an adrenalin surge is the
first warning sign that happens
when sugar gets too low, and
should tell a savvy person to take
some action to bring sugar levels
up. Probably the fastest absorbed
carbohydrate to raise sugar would
be crackers, a piece of white
bread, a baked potato, or a glass
of fruit juice. Of course if the
sugar is too low and the patient is
having trouble swallowing, then
an injection of glucagon or an IV
with sugar water would be
needed.
There are many and varied
causes for low blood sugar, such
as tumors of the pancreas, alcohol

abuse, complications from gastric
bypass surgery, and adrenal in-
sufficiency to name a few. There
is even a mild low sugar feeling
that commonly occurs when one
over-exercises on an empty stom-
ach, but any such symptoms
should be discussed with your
doctor.
By far the most common cause
for hypoglycemia is from certain
diabetic medicine, however, and
every diabetic should understand
the symptoms.

Call®,” a weekly program where

The Garden Gate
By Karen Englehart, Master Gardener
SDSU Extension - Perkins Co.
Grrr! My tomatoes have BER
This past week at the Perkins
County Fair we heard several
home gardeners comment on the
fact that their tomatoes were not
ripening or they had quite a bit of
blossom end rot. 
We can attribute the slow
ripening to the weather gener-
ally.  We have had quite a cool
summer; however tomatoes do
well in temperatures in the 70’s.
The problem could be a lack of full
sunshine for six to eight hours a
day and they very cool nights we
have had.  That appears to be
changing now so maybe the toma-
toes will ripen as the harvest will
finally be getting under way. 
Blossom end rot also known as
dry rot seems to be plaguing quite
a few of you, us included.  We
pitched about a dozen over the
back garden fence today; thank-
fully they were all small ones.
Blossom end rot is blamed on in-
consistent watering for the most
part but it can also be a lack of
calcium in the soil, and it must be
calcium that the plant can ab-
sorb. 
This disease does not spread
from plant to plant in the field, or
from fruit to fruit in transit. Since
it is of a physiological nature,
fungicides and insecticides are
useless as control measures. The
occurrence of the disease is de-
pendent upon a number of envi-
ronmental conditions, especially
those that affect the supply of
water and calcium in the develop-
ing fruits. Factors that influence
the uptake of water and calcium
by the plant have an effect on the
incidence and severity of blossom
end rot.
Conditions that can slow water
and/or calcium absorption can in-
clude:
•  Inconsistent watering
•  Root damage
•  Cold temperatures/cold soil
•  Excessive heat
•  Too much nitrogen in soil
(lowers calcium uptake)
•  Large amount of salts in the
soil (lowers the availability of cal-
cium) Well water in this area is
high in sodium; sodium in the soil
prevents the roots from absorbing
the calcium from the soil.
•  Markedly acidic or alkaline
soil (pH imbalance prevents cal-
cium absorption). A possible fix is
a product available in garden cen-
ters call Rot Stop which is an all-
natural product. Another fix,
which maybe too late for this year
is spraying a mixture of 1 table-
spoon calcium chloride (gypsum)
in one gallon of water. Spray 2-3
times a week until blossom end
rot is under control. Apply early
in the morning when tempera-
tures are cool.
Next week we will discuss
what you can do for next season’s
BER.
"All gardeners know better
than other gardeners." -- Chinese

Honoring our Fighting Aces
Words will never be enough to
show the depth of my gratitude
towards our veterans and mili-
tary personnel who are actively
serving. I can’t help but fill with
pride as I travel across South
Dakota and meet men and
women who have bravely stepped
up to defend this great country.
In fact, over 72,000 veterans call
South Dakota home and it is be-
cause of these heroes that fami-
lies across our state can wake up
in the greatest nation in the
world.
All of our nation’s veterans de-
serve to be treated with the honor
and respect they deserve, which is
why I have and will continue to
support legislation in Congress
that assists veterans and honors
their service. Recently, I cospon-
sored H.R. 685, the American
Fighter Aces Congressional Gold
Medal Act, which specifically hon-
ors our nation’s fighter pilots.
Fighter pilots are credited with
destroying five or more confirmed
enemy aircraft in aerial combat.
More than 60,000 fighter pilots
have served in the Armed Forces,
but less than 1,500 have been
honored with the prestigious title
of Fighter Ace. Ten aces were
born in South Dakota, including
Governor Joseph “Joe” Foss, the
second-highest scoring ace in the
Marine Corps, and Cecil Harris,
the second-highest scoring ace in
the Navy. As South Dakotans, we
should be proud to say that the
best of the best have called our
state home. I fly into and out of
Joe Foss Field in Sioux Falls
when I’m traveling to Washing-
ton, D.C. Every landing and take-
off reminds me of our state’s vet-
erans and one of our greatest fly-
ing aces.
The American Fighter Aces
Congressional Gold Medal Act
will allow for the presentation of
a single gold medal in honor of
these brave pilots and their in-
credible achievements. This
medal would then be given to the
Smithsonian Institution for dis-
play and research. Bronze dupli-
cates will be sold by the U.S. Mint
to cover the cost of the initial gold
medal.
This group of elite fighters is
also one of the most highly deco-
rated military groups in Ameri-
can history. Twenty-two achieved
the rank of Admiral in the Navy,
79 achieved the rank of General
in the Army, Marines and Air
Force and 19 fighter aces have
been awarded the Medal of
Honor, including Joe Foss.
I’m proud to support this bill,
and to support our men and
women in uniform. If you know of
a veteran who is having difficulty
receiving a military medal or
needs assistance with benefits
claims, please contact one of my
offices so we can help. Those

FARM SERVICE AGENCY
MICROLOAN PROGRAM
The Farm Service Agency
(FSA) developed the Microloan
(ML) program to better serve the
unique financial operating needs
of beginning, niche and the small-
est of family farm operations by
modifying its Operating Loan
(OL) application, eligibility and
security requirements. The pro-
gram offers more flexible access
to credit and serves as an attrac-
tive loan alternative for smaller
farming operations like specialty
crop producers and operators of
community supported agriculture
(CSA). These smaller farms, in-
cluding non-traditional farm op-
erations, often face limited fi-
nancing options. Microloans can
be used for all approved operating
expenses as authorized by the
FSA Operating Loan Program, in-
cluding but not limited to: Initial
start-up expenses, annual ex-
penses such as seed, fertilizer,
utilities, land rents, marketing
and distribution expenses, family
living expenses, purchase of live-
stock, equipment, etc, minor farm
improvements, hoop houses to ex-
tend the growing season, essen-
tial tools; irrigation delivery
vehicles. Microloans can be made
for up to $35,000.

Energy efficiency and the
Food, Farm and Jobs Bill
This week, the U.S. Depart-
ment of Agriculture announced
more than 630 new projects
across the country under the
Rural Energy for America Pro-
gram (REAP). These new projects
will help producers and busi-
nesses boost their bottom line,
while increasing America’s en-
ergy security and protecting our
environment.
Energy efficiency programs are
a key part of the President’s over-
all plan to mitigate the impacts of
a changing climate, while build-
ing our renewable energy capac-
ity to support an all-of-the-above
approach to America’s energy fu-
ture.
Under the Obama Administra-
tion, USDA has used this pro-
gram to support more than 7,000
energy efficiency projects. Many
of these provided assistance on
small and medium-sized farm
and ranches, or in rural busi-
nesses.
For example, USDA is provid-
ing a grant to a producer in Okla-
homa who will leverage
significant outside investment to
install two 100kW wind turbines.
A grant in Washington will en-
able an orchard owner to install a
solar hot water washing tank to
clean apples for market. And in
Wisconsin, REAP will help a pro-
ducer install an anaerobic di-
gester that will create more than
4.8 million kWh of electricity a
year while boosting environmen-
tal quality.
This program is a very good ex-
ample of why Congress must
achieve passage of a comprehen-
sive, multi-year Food, Farm and
Jobs Bill as soon as possible.
In January, Congress provided
an extension of some 2008 Farm
Bill programs when there was no
Congressional passage of a com-
prehensive Food, Farm and Jobs
Bill.  Now, in just a few weeks,
that extension will expire – once
again leaving rural America with-
out access to Farm Bill programs.
USDA relies on the Farm Bill to
carry out the Rural Energy for
America Program and many
other important efforts. Without
a comprehensive Food, Farm and
Jobs Bill, rural America will be
without energy efficiency pro-
grams. America’s farmers and
ranchers will be without a strong
safety net and important conser-
vation programs. We will lack
trade programs to promote U.S.
products, and the ability to invest
in strong agricultural research.
These are just a few of many ex-
amples.
This is too important for Con-
gress to kick the can down the
road with another short-term ex-
tension. We need the certainty of
a comprehensive, long-term Food,
Farm and Jobs Bill. USDA and
folks across rural America are
counting on Congress to advance
this legislation as soon as possi-
ble.

The South Dakota Department of
Agriculture has announced a
bridge loan program available for
Farm Service Agency approved
applicants.
“The department has always
worked closely with FSA, but the
new SDDA bridge loan program
is great collaboration between
both entities to ensure our pro-
ducers can continue with an agri-
cultural real estate purchase
when funds may not be readily
available at FSA,” said South
Dakota Secretary of Agriculture
Lucas Lentsch. “We have also
heard from many bankers who
think this is a great tool for them
to utilize when the opportunity is
right and the bank itself may not
be interested in a bridge loan.”
The bridge loan program is de-
signed to provide interim financ-
ing for FSA applicants approved
for loans to purchase land when
FSA funding is not available at
the time the applicant wants to
proceed in closing the land pur-
chase. The SDDA loan is struc-
tured for monthly interest only
payments until the funding is
available at FSA and the FSA
loan is closed. It is anticipated
that a bridge loan will be paid off
by FSA within three to nine
months.
SDDA does have the ability to
extend the term for up to two
years. If, for any reason, FSA does
not fund the loan, SDDA will
term the loan out over 10 years.
The current interest rate for the
department’s loan is four percent
and borrowers are required to pay
all closing fees.
“Due to the limitations of the
federal budget, there may be a
gap between loan approval and
funding,” said Craig Schauna-
man, state executive director at
United States Department of
Agriculture FSA. “The partner-
ship with the state is perfect tim-
ing and I expect this collaboration
to be a great benefit to the ap-
proved applicants to be able to go
forward with their land pur-
chase.”
For more information on the
bridge loan program or any of the
financial programs offered
through the South Dakota De-
partment of Agriculture, contact
Terri LaBrie, finance administra-
tor, at 605-773-5436 or
http://sdda.sd.gov. For informa-
tion on FSA’s farm loan pro-
grams, contact your local FSA
office or http://www.fsa.usda.gov/.

Motion carried.
7:15 PM – Open Bids for Street
Sweeper:
The following bid was received for
“Street Sweeper”:
Sanitation Products, Sioux Falls,
SD – $45,000.00
Riley made a motion, seconded by
Inghram to accept the bid for the 1995
Elgin Pelican Street Sweeper with the
money coming out of the budget for
street improvement and not doing as
much chip sealing. All yes votes. Motion
carried.
Water Connection – Bill Hibner:
Bill Hibner approached the Council
about connecting to the pasture tap that
was at the time put in by J.W. Baxter
which is now Fred Hulm’s. J.W. Baxter
had an easement with the City of Faith
for the water and Hibner was under the
assumption that he would have the same
rights as J.W. Baxter did. J.W. Baxter’s
plan with the land that Hibner purchased
was to sell off in 20 acre lots and was
going to have water to each portion, but
Hibner purchased the rest of the land.
Hibner would like to connect a four inch
line from Fred Hulm to himself. Hibner
would hire licensed plumber, John Frei
and felt the City has not had an issue
with his work. Hibner would have it dug
on the inside of his property line out from
the phone and power and Hibner would
pay from Hulm’s. Inghram asked Hibner
if he would annex into the City of Faith
and Hibner stated he would not and
didn’t feel the need as it wouldn’t help ei-
ther side. Hibner stated that the water
line was not assessed to the Baxter
property which he feels shows that they
were abiding by the easement. After
much discussion, Riley made a motion,
seconded by Inghram to table for more
information until the next meeting. Mo-
tion carried.
Spraying Quote for Lagoon:
The spraying at the lagoon was
missed in the spraying quotes earlier.
Holloway submitted a quote for $200 for
the lagoon. Hellekson made a motion,
seconded by Berndt to defer until spring
as the weeds have already gone to
seed. Motion carried.
Approve Sewer Study:
Debbie Brown met with Ali De-
Mersseman, Black Hills Council of Local
Governments and Dave Lutz with Brosz
Engineering to discuss possible grants
for the sewer liner project the City would
like to do in the near future. We wouldn’t
qualify for a grant as our minimum
charge for sewer would have to be at
least $22 to just qualify but really needs
to be up to the thirty’s and we are at $11
right now. DeMersseman suggested
doing a sewer study to see where we are
at and what we can do which we can
apply for a grant as it costs around
$12,500 so the City should only have to
pay up to $2,500. Lightfield made a mo-
tion, seconded by Hellekson to go for-
ward with the sewer study. Motion
carried.
Pressure Switch Control for Water
System:
Inghram made a motion, seconded
by Spencer to approve the pressure
switch for the water pump from Dakota
Pump and Control, Inc. at $4,620. All yes
votes. Motion carried.
Approve use of Gym for Games
During Stock Show:
The Faith Special Entertainment
Committee would like to use the gym for
the blow up games from the National
Guards due to weather and other things.
Inghram made a motion, seconded by
Lightfield to allow the games in the gym
at no charge. Motion carried. The insur-
ance for the games and the paintball will
be $700. Inghram made a motion, sec-
onded by Riley to approve paying the
$700. All yes votes. Motion carried.
Approve Stock Show’s list of
workers for the Liquor
who are certified:
The following is the list of workers
who are certified to sell the liquor under
the tent for Stock Show: Jozelle Humble,
Jeff and Mandi Brown, Colt and Brianna
Haines, Kyle and Amy Kennedy. Light-
field made a motion, seconded by Riley
to approve Stock Show’s workers. Mo-
tion carried.
Executive Session – Personnel:
Lightfield made a motion, seconded
by Hellekson to retire into executive ses-
sion at 7:53 PM to discuss personnel.
Motion carried.
Mayor Haines declared the Council
out of executive session at 8:28 PM.
Approve Extra Bartender during
Stock Show:
Hellekson made a motion, seconded
by Riley to have Riley and Lightfield
meet with Patty Hauser Wednesday
morning to go over the changes on the
schedule. Motion carried.
Approve ID Checkers and Salary:
Riley made a motion, seconded by
Lightfield to approve the following as ID
checkers at $8: Peggy Riley, Sandy Ras-
mussen, Pam Antrim, Virginia Gerbracht
and LouAnn Steen. All yes votes. Motion
carried.
Close off Main Street in front of the
Bank:
Spencer made a motion, seconded
by Lightfield to approve closing off the
street in front of the bank up to Lonny’s
Steak House for the tent. Motion carried.
Transfer of Airport Entitlements –
2010:
Lightfield made a motion, seconded
by Inghram to approve the transfer of air-
port entitlements for 2010. All yes votes.
Motion carried.

ried.

Spencer made a motion, seconded
by Lightfield to table upon more certifica-
tions and information. Motion carried.
Ice House:
Riley would like an update as to
where we are with the project due to the
time frame on the grant. Mayor Haines
will talk with Henschel’s again.
Swimming Pool:
Inghram made a motion, seconded
by Lightfield to pay Tori Afdahl all of the
$30 taken in for the swimming lessons
and deduct out what we already paid her
for hours giving lessons. All yes votes.
Motion carried.
Swimming pool will be closing on the
15th and cleaning on the 16th.

Justin Vig submitted a building permit
to replace an existing addition on a trailer
house going from 12’X 24’ to a 20’X 24’
on Lots 1&2, Block 17. Spencer made a

prove the building permit for Justin Vig.
