The Faith City Council approves use of gym School sentinel bill passes first for 3 on 3 tournament and post prom By Loretta Passolt hurdle, goes to House floor
Following approval of minutes and claims, the Faith City Council retired into executive session for committee meetings. This was done in case any employees names were brought into the conversation. The first item on their agenda then was to approve the city crew to insulate the west wall in the shop building. This work will be done on days when they need to be inside. Mayor Haines said he and Debbie have been working with Locken Oil of Isabel on obtaining Jet A fuel along with aviation fuel. It sounds like there will be a S.E.A.T. plane here this summer that uses Jet A fuel. Locken will be able to get the fuel for them, they’ll just need to let him know in advance when they would need it. They will have a bid for the next meeting. Haines also stated that Annelle Afdahl will come help when they clean out the ice house and tell them what can be thrown and what stays, when weather permits. Hunter Johnson, on behalf of the freshman class, asked for use of the gym and the council room for the post prom party on April 6th, and asked that the City waive the fee. Council approved his request, with the understanding they clean when they are done, and also approved the usual donation of $500 towards the event. Debbie Brown asked for use of the gym for the Special Entertainment Committee to hold a 3 on 3 tournament on March 30th, with the fee waived. Council also approved this request, with the same conditions. Resolution #01-22-13-01 for the transfer of funds was approved. Resolution #01-22-13-02 for a DSL Data charge was approved. There is only one customer who has DSL. The City is charged this fee and they have to pass it on to the customer. Council moved their February 5th meeting to February 4th, due to a conflict with their original meeting night. Debbie wanted to make sure that the salaries for security guards was clarified. Non-certified officers had been paid $8.50 an hour which they upgraded to $10 at their previous meeting. The increase is correct. Library salaries were also raised, as the Library committee requested, to an increase of 50¢ an hour. Each year Council pre-approves any claims that have a penalty be paid prior to a meeting. Lacey Abbe was approved as a fill-in bartender at $10 an hour upon the condition she completes her online training prior to beginning work. The utilities and ambulance arrears list were reviewed and discussed. They discussed those customers who do not pay their utility bills on time. Customers receive a notice that they will be disconnected unless payment or arrangements are made. If disconnected, there is a reconnect fee. Members also discussed options for collecting those accounts that aren’t paying. Their next meeting will be February 4th. By Elizabeth “Sam” Grosz, Community News Service An emotionally charged measure that could put armed and trained guards in schools passed out of committee by one vote last week at the S.D. Legislature. The result of two hearings— over three hours of discussion--by the House Education Committee, HB1087 allows local school boards the option of hiring a socalled “school sentinel.” As the bill was amended before passage Jan. 25, the local county sheriff then must agree to the board’s plan before the sentinel program moves forward in the district. Freshman Representative Scott Craig, R-Rapid City, said the bill may appear unnecessary to large schools, those that currently can afford liaison officers, but this bill allows local school boards to make their own determination of need. The current “gun-free zone,” Craig said of schools, “indicates a ‘soft target’” for those who intend to harm people. Rep. Betty Olson, R-Prairie City, spoke to the vast area of Butte, Harding and Perkins Counties in her district, noting it can be “a long way to law enforcement.” Even though she as a substitute teacher has a handgun, she said, she is “not allowed to carry my weapon into the classroom,” so she “couldn’t protect my students or myself” in an emergency. Opposing testimony was offered by Orson Ward, Lead, who cited his vast military training in firearms and his current position on the Lead School Board, said “school is an unforgiving environment” for guns. He noted the “inevitable accidental discharge” of a gun as his opposition to the bill. Rob Monson, Superintendents Association of South Dakota, said even with the amendment to provide more training for the school sentinels, the bill still was not acceptable to schools. Schools have plans in place for tornadoes, fires, and other situations. “We plan, prepare and practice,” aid Monson, noting that for this question, “well over 95 percent of schools have a plan in place and practice it at least once a year.” The dialogue on this situation, he said, should include the mental health issue, noting there should be one school counselor for every 200 students and “we are nowhere near that.” The bill, which passed out of committee with a close 8-7 vote, now heads to the House floor, perhaps on Tuesday.
Speeding penalty bill pulled over in House committee
By Elizabeth “Sam” Grosz, Community News Service
It may be a crime to speed in South Dakota, but it hasn’t been adding penalty points to a driver’s record for the past 20-some years. Action by the House Transportation Committee Jan. 22 during the S.D. Legislature ensures that practice will continue for the foreseeable future. Rep. Steve Hickey, Sioux Falls Republican, was trying again this year to add speeding back into the points system as it was prior to 1986. He called it “a kinder, gentler version” of last year’s bill that also had been defeated. Every other moving violation has points that are applied to a driver’s record. However, the joke, he said, about speeding is that motorists can “drive as fast as you can afford.” The purpose, Hickey said, was “not to suspend licenses, but to slow people down.” Fines, he said, have not done that. The bill would only affect a small fraction of the state’s drivers, he said. “Speeding is no laughing matter,” said Sen. Craig Tieszen, Rapid City Republican, adding, “speed is the leading cause of accidents in this state.” It is “ironic,” he said, “that you can get a point for driving too slow, but not for driving too fast.” While the Department of Public Safety had indicated to Hickey that they did not oppose the bill, some members thought it odd that the DOT was not testifying for the bill. Rep. Manny Steele, R-Sioux Falls, said he originally had signed on the bill as a sponsor, but was changing his mind and voting against it, saing it was “a bill aimed at a few hundred people who are abusive.” He called it “overkill,” citing the effort to keep track of the records. The committee voted to kill the bill, 9-4, by moving it to the session’s 41st day.

Healthcare in Partnership with Education (HIPE) Week, February 4-8
Promoting health careers to South Dakota students is the focus of the upcoming Healthcare in Partnership with Education (HIPE) Week February 4-8. As South Dakota’s population continues to age, projections indicate the state will need thousands of additional healthcare workers, with rural areas particularly affected. HIPE Week is an annual observance bringing together schools, communities and healthcare providers in an effort to make today’s students aware of the many healthcare careers that are available to them. “There are a wealth of career options available in health care today and a growing demand for services,” said Doneen Hollingsworth, Secretary of Health. “HIPE Week is a great opportunity to introduce South Dakota students to those options and encourage them to consider health care careers right here in South Dakota.” Hollingsworth said HIPE Week is sponsored by the state’s Health Occupations for Today and Tomorrow program. The program is a joint effort of the Departments of Health, Education, and Labor and the Board of Regents intended to promote health careers for South Dakota students. Local groups interested in participating in HIPE Week can find free resources, including lesson plans and activities on the web at www.healthcareers.sd.gov. More information about South Dakota Workforce Initiatives can be found at http://www.southdakotawins.com/.

Bill bolsters news media's ability to cover high school sports
By David Bordewyk, South Dakota Newspaper Association
High school football games under Friday night lights and basketball gyms jam-packed with fans are as much a part of South Dakota as coffee-shop talk about the weather and crops. High school sports and other interscholastic activities such as drama and music events fuel intense civic pride in our communities and schools. The feats and accomplishments of students on the field of competition or the performance stage are celebrated by an entire community of family, friends and school fans. The hometown newspaper is there as well, chronicling the games and school activities. Covering local school sports and school activities such as plays and concerts are a big part of what goes into the local newspaper. The community expects it and a good newspaper meets that expectation. Technology today has allowed newspapers to expand the tools they use to cover high school sports and events. Newspapers are going beyond the traditional stories and photos printed in the paper to innovations such as broadcasting football or basketball games over the internet and updating readers through social media tools. Readers have come to expect that type of expanded coverage and newspapers of all sizes in South Dakota are delivering on those expectations. All good, right? Yes, except that some schools are now putting restrictions and limitations on how the local news media can cover their school sporting events and activities. In Pierre, an exclusive contract between the school and a local radio station prohibits a competing local radio station or the local newspaper from broadcasting Pierre school athletic events. However, the restrictions don't apply to any out-of-town news media outlets. In Sioux Falls, the public school district sought to specifically prohibit the local newspaper from broadcasting high school football and basketball games on the internet. Elsewhere, newspaper photographers are being unreasonably restricted on how they can cover high school competitions. Reporters are limited on how they can use social media such as Twitter and Facebook to report live from a high school game. Schools offer a variety of reasons for these restrictions. Mostly, it boils down to money. Schools looking to make additional revenue from the performances of students on the field by placing restrictions on how the local news media may cover these events. Incredible as it may sound, there is a real trend toward more monetization of high school sports. That is why we are working for passage of a bill in this legislative session that would prohibit schools from unreasonably restricting the ability of local news media to do their job. Senate Bill 119 would not prohibit schools from generating revenue through certain contracts with media, so long as those contracts do not restrict other media from being able to do their job. SB119 is not about creating any special or new privilege for news media in South Dakota. It only tries to ensure the news media in South Dakota can do what they have always done when it comes to reporting about high school sports and activities. Fans and supporters of high school sports and activities expect the local news media to be there, creating a chronology and scrapbook of memories and achievements through their stories, photos and other media. Urge your legislators to support Senate Bill 119. Let's make sure the hometown news media can continue to do their job and live up to the expectations of their readers and viewers. Nothing more, nothing less.
Legislative Update
Rep. Betty Olson
This was the third week of the 2013 legislative session and we are beginning to act on more than just agency bills. Sen. Larry Rhoden, Rep. Dean Wink, and Rep. Gary Cammack from District 29 joined Sen. Ryan Maher and me from District 28 at the Cracker Barrels Saturday in Belle Fourche and Newell. First was a luncheon in Belle Fourche at the American West. Questions from the audience focused on education, energy, guns, and the budget. Later that afternoon we met at the Newell City Hall for a lively discussion about ObamaCare. Every person there, including the legislators, were against implementing it in South Dakota and asked us to do whatever we can to stop the government’s intrusion into our health care. There were also questions about Agenda 21, funding predator control, the redistricting process, guns, and the budget. We appreciate the active involvement of the citizens in this area and we look forward to Cracker Barrels in Belle and Newell again on February 9th. Here are some of the bills that were passed in the House this week: *HB 1003 to revise the purpose of the agriculture mediation program passed the House unanimously on Wednesday. This was another bill that came out of our Oil and Gas Development Committee. *HB 1078 to revise the location where county highway maps may be filed passed out of my Local Government committee on Monday and passed the House on consent Wednesday. *HB 1076 to repeal the requirement to separately publish information concerning county poor relief from the minutes of the county commissions also came out of Local Government and passed on Wednesday. *HB 1112 to clarify the application of open meetings provisions for three-member public boards passed on Thursday. *HB 1004 to provide for the award of treble damages in surface depredation cases passed on Thursday. This was also an Oil and Gas Development Committee bill. *HB 1028 to repeal the requirement that a minor be accompanied by an adult while hunting mourning doves passed on consent on Friday. *HB 1091 to establish provisions regarding the labeling of motor fuel (85 Octane) at a retail fuel pump passed the House on Friday. *HB 1090 to exempt amateur sports coaches from sales tax passed on Friday. *HB 1033 to authorize the Department of Social Services to dismantle, demolish, preserve, or rehabilitate buildings on the Human Services Center campus in Yankton, to make an appropriation, and to declare an emergency passed on Friday with a 64 to 6 vote. I was one of the no votes because demolishing these buildings will cost six million dollars we don’t have to spare. The debris from the demolished buildings will be buried, although the asbestos has to be handled separately at considerable expense to the taxpayers because of federal regulations, regardless of the fact that the asbestos came out of the ground in the first place! This is some of what transpired in committees this week: *HB 1005 that would require posting of information if hydraulic fracture stimulation is performed on oil and gas wells was tabled in Agriculture and Natural Resources committee because DENR is already doing this. *HB 1087, the Sentinels in Schools bill, passed out of House Education committee 8 to 7 as amended. This is a very permissive bill allowing local school boards to decide if they want to allow school employees to carry concealed weapons to protect themselves and our children. If the school board wants to allow this, the county sheriff has veto power if he doesn’t think it’s a good idea. No one will be mandated to have a gun, but the employees who agree to will get the
same firearms training as law enforcement officers. The big city schools already have armed guards on the payroll, but in the more rural areas where we don’t have these protections this will allow our local school boards to do what they think is best for our children. I was very offended by the testimony that Wade Pogany, director of the state school boards association, gave in committee when he said, "Putting guns in the hands of teachers and principals makes schools less safe." Usually all we hear from school boards is that they want more local control and Mr. Pogany testified that the local school boards weren’t capable of making this decision. He doesn’t think our local elected officials are smart enough to decide what’s best for our children! *HB 1010, a Constitutional Concealed Carry bill was sent to 41st day by a vote of 7 to 6 in the Local Government committee on Thursday. If you want to get in touch with me, call me at the House Chamber number 773-3851. Leave a phone number and I’ll call you back. The fax number is 773-6806. If you send a fax, address it to Rep. Betty Olson. You can also email me at rep.bettyolson@state.sd.us during session. You can keep track of bills and committee meetings at this link: http://legis.state.sd.us/ You can also use this link to find the legislators, see what committees they are on, read all the bills and track the status of each bill, listen to committee hearings, and contact the legislators.

Marcus News
By Vicky Waterland
Sincere sympathy is extended to the families of Lawrence Collins and Buster Maynard. Lawrence may not have been a “mover and shaker” in Faith but he was a special and important guy. He was there to help and lend a hand when needed. In thinking of Lawrence I was reminded of the hymn Brighten the Corner Where You Are. He did just that! Maynard is a well respected name in the world of rodeo. It will seem odd not to see Buster in Rapid City helping with all the shows. He, too, will be missed. Condolences are also extended to Bob Hansen and family in the loss of his mother, Marie. She had been living at the Philip Nursing Home. Elke King’s brother, Dru Melvin lost his great NFR bulldogging horse, Diamond MS Moon, Moonshine on January 26. Moonshine was being ridden by Tod Suhn at the Denver Coliseum, National Western Stock Show when a steer horn punctured Moonshine’s heart. We area folks understand what a great loss this is to the Melvin family and the rodeo world. We value good livestock, appreciate and love them. Tucker and Bev Hudson were Hills shoppers on Wednesday. They picked up an organ that Kay Simons donated to the Marcus Church. Mary Kay Sandal visited her mother at the Philip Nursing Home on Saturday.  Tucker and Bev Hudson drove to Burke, SD on Thursday and were able to watch grandchild, Whitney Hutchison, play in basketball games on Thursday and Friday night. They returned home Saturday. Kevin Jensen took the time to email me listing some names of others who were probably in the Mother's Club I mentioned last time. He added the names Velma Sandstrom, Mrs. Pankratz, Jo Schuh, and Edythe Dexheimer. Thanks Kevin. Harold and I were in Faith Friday to watch the Faith Longhorns play the Newell Irrigators. There was a large crowd.  My brother-in-law, Denver Enright has been under the weather. He will be in Aberdeen Tuesday for more tests and check-up on the tumor they found on his liver. We'll be praying for good news. I have so many people tell me how much they enjoy this column. I appreciate hearing that but I also marvel at it. I sit down at my computer and think, “What can I write about now and have I written that before?” As Harold and I travel down the roads, I often think of things but manage to forget them by the time it is news night. If someone has an idea or knows some history of South Dakota please let me share with others. As many of you have already experienced clearing out our parents’ homes can be a chore. My house is large so I have custody of much of the family treasures from Harold and my families. Harold’s grandmother, Josie Kilness and his mom, Phyllis Kilness Waterland, kept scrapbooks filled with news stories and clippings from by-gone days. One clipping that I find fascinating is the story of the neighbor man who beat his horse to death. He beat up his wife, son, and hired man that same night and set the barn afire. The wife came to my grandparents’ place, Edwin and Anna Thompson, for refuge. My dad told how he and a brother took their 22s, went out to lie on a hill east of the place and wait for the man to come. If he did come they were to stop him. Dad said it was a long fear-filled night, wondering and waiting.  My Aunt Rosalie, now in her late 80s, said to this day if she smells wood smoke it brings back memories of that night and how scared they all were. In the clipping they hinted that the man had drank alcohol that was tainted and caused the behavior. I’m not sure if there were even crank telephones at that time and the nearest lawman was either Sturgis or Faith. The sheriff did come the next day but, the two teenage boys would have had to “stop” him with what they had. This country is, was and will be an area where we take care of things and don’t plan on someone doing it for us. We live too far from towns to call the police every time we have a porcupine, rabid skunk or coyote to send to their maker. We are just darn independent folks and we take care of our own. We need our guns and the right to use them.   This morning I looked through the oldest of Josie's albums. It is a treasure trove but it is falling apart. The paper flakes off into small pieces and the pages are almost too brittle to turn. Does anyone know of a scanner that would scan pages that are 15 or 16 inches by 11? There are clippings of the horse Commanche, the soldier who rode him, the wedding write up for Nunny Simons and Clinton Tysdale, the funeral story of Mrs. Clyde Ensor, a story of De King as Boys Stater and so on. I find it fascinating but too fragile to share as it is. Anyone have any suggestions! Thanks. Email me at vickywaterland@hotmail.com call 985-5318 or write me at 19149 39 S Road, Howes, SD 57748.

Winter temperatures were definitely here last week. Temps were in the teens most of the week. Thursday morning it was 0º but the wind chill was a -22º! It was mighty cold to be outside. It warmed up to about 12º for a high that afternoon but by 8:30 or so that night it was up to 30º! Rapid City had a high of 51 that afternoon. Friday was a beautiful day reaching almost 40 and remaining in the upper 30s through the first of this week. We had around 3” of snow on the ground within about 3 hours Monday morning. It continued snowing most of the day. It had some much needed moisture in it. It is suppsed to get vry cold again this Wednesday and Thursday. This Saturday is Groundhog Day. Do you suppose Punxsutawney Phil will see his shadow? I’m not sure I want anymore of those really cold days. Condolences to the family of Buster Maynard. Buster passed away Sunday. He and NanCee were part of the BHSS for years. I understand they will be doing a special tribute to Buster at the BH Stock Show this week. He will be missed by many. Also condolences to Irene Hintz and her family on the loss of her sister, Mildred Crockett. Also to Bob Hansen and family on the loss of his mother. Irean Jordan called in this little item of interest from an old newspaper article. Sunday morning, January 4th, 1924, fire consumed the store buildings of Leo Kelly, John Johnson and the Liberty Theatre. The Farmers State Bank was seriously damaged. These buildings were on Lot 2 on the west side of Main Street. George and Annelle Afdahl visited Marie Doak and Tish Gustafson on Friday on their way to Torrington, Wyo. where they met the Juel Afdahl family. Tami’s parents, Frank and Roberta Schrater from Buffalo, Wyo. and her brother Steve from Gillette, Wyo. were also there to watch Canton play with the Torrington, Wyo. freshmen basketball team. The prior Wednesday, George and Annelle went to Gillette, Wyo. to watch Halli Stocklin play basketball with the Gillette College team. Our daughter Melissa (and Bella) came home Thursday afternoon to spend a few days. She took in the basketball games on Friday. She got in some visiting there, also visited with Takayla Lightfield and a little with Marlayna McGinnis while she was here. She left for home in North Dakota Sunday after dinner. There are three council seats, Inghram, Spencer and Nolan, and the mayor’s seat up for election this year. These are all 2 year terms. Also Brian Simonson and Scott Vance’s seats on the school board are up for election. These

are both 3 year terms. I don’t know how many petitions have been picked up as of today. Election date is April 9th. Petitions may be picked up at the respective offices. There’s still plenty of time to pick up a petition. This is Super Bowl Sunday and I would imagine many of us will have our eyes glued to the television set, if not for the game then for the great commercials they manage to come up with. I’m sure going to be watching the 49ers. Go Niners!! Congratulations to Cody Trainor on being named SDSportsbuzz’s Monster Player of the Week last week. There is a nice write up on Cody on the site. it out! Check www.sdsportsbuzz.com The boys Little Moreau Confference Tournament is this week.

Central Meade County News
By Sandy Rhoden
Central Meade County and the Black Hills have been enjoying mild temperatures over the weekend. It has made traveling to and from the Black Hills Stock Show & Rodeo events much easier. Some of our locals are taking part in the Ranch Rodeo and other activities this week. District 29 legislators attended three cracker barrels on Saturday at Sturgis, Belle Fourche, and Newell. The audiences in Sturgis and Belle Fourche were respectful and showed their appreciation to our legislators for taking the day to answer questions and update them on current bills. Legislative topics consumed the full day for Representative Dean Wink, Representative Gary Cammack, and Senator Larry Rhoden. The Faith varsity basketball team fell to Dupree last Tuesday, Jan.22, however the JV pulled out a win. The Longhorns boys and girls won their games against Newell at the double header in Faith on Friday night. The boys play in the Little Moreau Conference Tournament this Thursday, Friday and Saturday. The Tumbling Tornados performed at half time of the Faith/Eagles junior high basketball game on Tuesday night. Tumblers range from grade K6th grade and come from Atall, Hereford, Stoneville, Union Center, White Owl, Red Owl, Plainview, and Faith communities. They are Andoryn Walker, Kimber Fees, Mariah Spring, Shania Spring, Karlie Kammerer, Katie Sheridan, Lexi Long, Jaycee Jones, Jalynn Grubl, Sage Graham, Emerald Milburn, Rachel Cammack, Brittany Grubl, Kylie Shaw, Emily Gray, and Sydney Shaw. Rocking Tree Floral donated flowers for our tumblers' performance. With only seven practices before Tuesday night, these young girls are required to learn and remember a great amount in a short period of time. We also appreciate the Sturgis Rally Fund for helping us to acquire some needed equipment and items for our program. They are under the direction of Sandy Rhoden and assistant, Melanie Cammack. John and Melanie Cammack returned from the Denver Stock Show to promote buffalo producers. They will be at the Rapid City Stock Show and sale on Feb.2-3. Sandy Rhoden and Debbie Schnell spent a couple of hours catching up with their cousin from Bozeman, MT at the RC Stock Show. They visited near their booth as they raise and show Arabian horses. Some of our high schoolers from Central Meade County enjoyed the Lock-In at the Church of Christ in Faith. They had contests and games, including Fear Factor with food. Those attending from our area were Paige Brink, Chaney Keffeler, Reg Rhoden, Tristen Rhoden, Brandi Enright, and Caden Smiley. They were released at sunup on Saturday. Good news came for Larry and Sandy Rhoden as their son, Cody, completed the SEER training program where he is attending flight school in Fort Rucker, Alabama near Ozark. During his time away, Sandy's uncle, a WWII Pearl Harbor survivor, passed away. He and his wife moved to assisted living, so Cody currently resides at their home.

Sen. Ryan Maher’s Legislative Report
This week on the Senate Floor, Senate Bill 70 - the Public Safety Improvement Act passed off the floor and is headed for the house. This is an effort to hold offenders more accountable for their actions, improve public safety, and create the capacity needed for the supervision of offenders with the community. This measure has the potential to save taxpayers $166 million that would have been spent on building two new prisons to meet the growing number of prisoners in South Dakota. We cannot rely on warehousing to solve our needs. We need to solve the problem while we continue to protect society. One of the more emotional issues debated in this last week was in the House of Representatives. House Bill 1087 – The School Sentinel Program, a measure designed to help give schools additional tools to protect students from those who would do children harm. It was one for the history books, as the lobbyist for the Associated School Boards conceded that it was an issue "too big for schools to decide." As someone in the legislature who represents many families with children, I can personally tell you that working with schools to develop resources to protect our youth while they're in a learning environment is not a difficult decision. The difficulty in the "HOW" we do it. This measure provides that any school board may create, establish, and supervise the arming of school employees, hired security personnel, or volunteers in such manner as they may believe to best protect the school from those who would do children or staff harm. We spend a lot of time in Pierre discussing education and the learning environment of our children. Keeping them safe in that environment is part of our responsibility as well. I look forward to debating this measure on the Senate Floor should it make its journey through the House. Last week, we had reported on Senate Bills 3, 4 and 5, which are part of a package to bring better accountability and cost effectiveness to higher education to determine how South Dakota can better serve our students. All three measures passed the State Senate, and now go over to the House of Representatives for further action. These measures provide the reporting of the outcomes of license and certification exams and to determine certain job placements for graduates of all public postsecondary education institutions in the State of South Dakota, and keeps with Republican's general theme this session of spending our hard earned tax dollars smarter. Senate Bill 83 passed off the Senate Floor on Friday. It was introduced by Senator Reed Holien of Watertown, which designates that the thirtieth day of March would be known as Welcome
Home Vietnam Veterans Day. Many Vietnam Veterans came to the Capitol to testify in favor of the measure. This working holiday will be dedicated to the remembrance and recognition of the service and sacrifice rendered by our nation's veterans of the Vietnam War. In the 1960's and 70's there were many instances where anti-war protesters treated our returning troops poorly, and veterans still feel the sting of that rejection. This permanent recognition is a simple gesture, we as South Dakotans, can make to let them know we will always remember their defense of our country. One topic that keeps coming up is the problem with the pine beetles in the Black Hills. Republicans are discussing this very diligently in hopes that we can finally find a permanent solution to the problem. This includes proposed legislation to appropriate funds to suppress the pine beetles, and to establish a cost sharing program with counties in the State of South Dakota. The budget proposed by the Governor suggested a one-time appropriation of $2 million to initiate the measure. Closer to home are Senate Bills 16 and 21. Both of these are proposals from the State Brand Board. Senate Bill 16 would allow the state brand board to establish a fee for local inspections of one hundred head of livestock or less, not to exceed twenty-five dollars per trip.  The board may charge and collect a fee for services pertaining to any local inspection of one hundred head of livestock or less. The fee shall be in addition to the ownership inspection fee and the mileage fee, and shall be
used to offset the costs of providing a local inspection.  Senate Bill 21, removes the inspection from horses and mules.  The board claims this is an antiquated system and it is no longer needed. However, many people in our area still use this process and would like to see it continued. In the coming week, the Senate will be taking up the review of House Bill 1061, a measure to expand our Captive Insurance market in South Dakota. While the captive insurance market industry may not be well known by the
general public, the passage of this act is a simple regulatory change to help South Dakota become more competitive in this market. Like the change in credit card regulations under Governor Janklow brought thousands of jobs, and tens of millions in investment to South Dakota, this measure has the same kind of potential to benefit our state. With its passage, we would have the ability to lure more capital to our banks while creating opportunity for more high-paying jobs – at no expense to taxpayers.

Keystone XL Pipeline: A stimulus plan America needs
By Senator John Thune Pending before President Obama is a true economic stimulus plan. Unlike the $833 billion stimulus bill that was loaded with pet projects and wasteful government spending, this stimulus plan is privately funded and would not waste taxpayer dollars on yet another duplicative government program. Instead, this plan would bolster private sector job creation, would help secure America’s energy future, and would generate tax revenue and stimulate growth in South Dakota and throughout the country. This pending plan is the approval of the Keystone XL pipeline. While the benefits of the Keystone XL pipeline are clear, what remains unclear is why President Obama continues to delay this job-creating, domestic energy-producing project. The pipeline, which would run through South Dakota, is expected to create an estimated 20,000 jobs, and transport up to an additional 830,000 barrels of oil per day to U.S. refineries. This $7 billion project would not only stimulate the American economy, it would create hundreds of construction jobs and generate new tax revenue in South Dakota. Unfortunately, in January of 2012, the president decided to play politics with this important economic project. Instead of determining whether to move forward with the pipeline, the president opted to punt the decision until after the 2012 presidential election, further delaying job creation and energy production.  On January 22, 2013, Nebraska Governor Dave Heineman approved a new route through Nebraska for the Keystone XL pipeline that avoids the environmentally sensitive Sandhills region. The new route was approved after the Nebraska Department of Environmental Quality determined the pipeline would have minimal environmental impact on the area. Following the news of Governor Heineman’s approval, I joined a bipartisan group of 53 U.S. Senators on January 23, 2013, in sending another letter to President Obama urging him to approve the Keystone XL pipeline without delay. The letter encouraged the president to choose economic development and American energy security, and to cease all further delays on the pipeline. After several political delays and four and a half years of environmental reviews, it is time for the president to stick to the deadline. Unfortunately, it does not appear that the Obama Administration’s State Department plans to make a determination regarding the environmental documents for this pipeline until this spring or summer. I will continue to work with my Senate colleagues to push for this bipartisan project to ensure we continue investing in America’s energy future.

Howdy Cloud of Kountze, Texas claims a second victory in Rapid City during the first performance of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Xtreme Bulls tour held during the Black Hills Stock Show Rodeo. He turned in a total score of 168 on two bulls edging out  Dalton Votaw of Liberty, Texas who finished second with a total score of 161 on two bulls. Cloud claimed his first Rapid City Xtreme Bulls victory back in 2011. Timber Lake, S.D. native, Ardie Maier, finished third with a total score of 155 on two bulls. Cloud, Votaw, and Maier were the only three to make two qualified rides in the Wrangler Championship Round. Cloud secured his place in the top ten for the Wrangler Championship Round by riding Red Eye from stock contractors Southwicks Rocky Mt. Rodeo for 84 points. But, Clint Craig of Milsap, Texas and Taylor Toves of Stephenville, Texas took the lead in the long go-round with a score of 88. Both cowboys had a no score in the final round. The first performance will be a televised on Feb. 10 on Great American Country (GAC). Tyler Smith of Fruita, Colo., is known to be a great roper, but Satuday night he was known as a great bull rider being named performance #2 champion of the Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association (PRCA) Xtreme Bulls tour held during the Black Hills Stock Show Rodeo. Smith turned in a total score of 176 on two bulls and secured his place in the Wrangler Championship top ten by scoring a 91 on Burns Rodeo’s Smoke Signal. It was the highest marked ride of the night. Parker Breding of Egar, Mont., was the only other bull rider to make two qualified rides. His 77point ride on Sutton Rodeo’s Crystal Springs Peach brought the crowd to a roar in the Wrangler Championship Round. His total score on two bulls was 163. The Xtreme Bulls Tour format features 35 cowboys participating in a long-go each night with the top 10 riders brought back for a short round. The Rapid City champion is crowned based on the highest total score from both nights of competition. Monies won at PRCA Xtreme Bulls Tour stops count towards the 2013 PRCA World Standings, which determine qualifiers for the Wrangler NFR in Las Vegas. Seventy of the world’s top bull riders converged on the Rushmore Plaza Civic Center to compete for $52,000. The performance will be a televised on Feb. 18 on Great American Country (GAC). “Oh the agony of that hour no one can tell,” Shaw wrote in her letter contained in 900 Miles from Nowhere: Voices from the Homestead by Steven R. Kinsella. “The storm grew wilder, colder and thicker every moment until it seemed to breathe nothing but Death and Death inevitable in its every gust. You could not see 3 feet from the window at times and not 6 feet ahead all day.” A combination of gale winds, blinding snow and rapidly dropping temperatures made the storm dangerous. The Signal Station at Huron reported that the wind averaged 45 to 50 mph, with gusts up to 60 mph. The temperature fell from 20 degrees at noon to 17 degrees below zero at 10 p.m., further dropping to 28 degrees below zero during the night. The storm abated early on Jan. 13. Shaw’s husband went for the children and found them all safe. Others were not as fortunate. The Wi-Iyohi listed the names of 178 people who perished in the blizzard in South Dakota. Many who lay dead on the prairie were children who were caught on their way home from school. In The Children’s Blizzard, author David Laskin states that about 500 people in the Dakotas, Nebraska and Minnesota perished in the storm. Coursey was one of the fortunate schoolchildren, as his teacher kept her flock of pioneer children in the schoolhouse while the storm raged and into the long, cold night. In the morning of Jan. 13, the teacher saw that the storm had died out, took the schoolchildren to her nearby claim shanty, fed them and sent them home. Coursey sat by his mother’s bedside when she died in September 1914. “The last thing she said to me before she passed away was this: ‘Son, you will never know the burden that was lifted from my heart the next morning after the Big Blizzard, when I looked out and saw you four older children scampering home over the snow-drifts, when I was positively sure you had all perished in the storm.’” This moment in South Dakota history is provided by the South Dakota Historical Society Foundation, the nonprofit fundraising partner of the South Dakota State Historical Society. The South Dakota Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre is an official site on the Lewis & Clark National Historic Trail. Find the Foundation on the web at www.sdhsf.org
The Weather Channel began assigning names to big snowstorms in 2012. A blizzard that blasted the Midwest on Jan. 12, 1888, was so destructive that it acquired several names: “The Children’s Blizzard,” “The Schoolchildren’s Blizzard” and “The Schoolhouse Blizzard.” The morning felt more like April than January: warm, calm and clear. Oscar Coursey, three of his siblings and their schoolmates were at recess the morning of Jan. 12, 1888, outside the schoolhouse near their homestead in southwestern Beadle County, playing in their shirt sleeves, without hats or mittens. “Suddenly, we looked up and saw something coming rolling toward us with great fury from the northwest, and making a loud noise,” Coursey wrote in Pioneering in Dakota. “It looked like a long string of big bales of cotton, each one bound tightly with heavy cords of silver, and then all tied together with great silvery rope.” All the children had just gotten inside the schoolhouse when the storm struck with such force that it nearly moved the building off its cobblestone foundation. George Duernberger had taken his horses to a well about one-half mile from his homestead in Faulk
The Children’s Blizzard
County when one of the horses jerked the halter rope from his hand and started for the barn. A hurried glance to the northwest showed him a gray bank. “Then the wind came. Everything was blotted out, and the trail disappeared, the horses’ heads were not visible … It was difficult to breathe and utterly impossible to keep my eyes open against the driving snow … The cold was piercing,” according to Duernberger’s account in The South Dakota Historical Society’s bulletin The Wi-Iyohi. A brief break in the storm enabled him to recognize a landmark and realize where he was. He was able to get his horses in the barn and start for the house. He was guided to the house by the sound of his wife blowing on a trumpet. “It was but eighty minutes since I had left for the well. An eternity, however, had elapsed.” Sadie Shaw wrote her brother and sister that the wind knocked her down when she attempted to go to the coal box about a rod (about 5.5 yards) east of her sod house in the Platte/Geddes area. Her husband had gone to get their children from school when he realized a storm was coming. He returned home safely after being in the storm for about an hour, unsuccessful in his attempt to reach the schoolhouse.

Corn Growers challenge raises $25,000 for Feeding South Dakota
Farmers, agribusinesses pitch in to fight hunger
South Dakota Corn Growers President Mark Gross challenged farmers during the association’s 27th annual meeting to donate $100 each to Feeding South Dakota. Within hours, those farmers and several agricultural groups had raised $25,000 for the state’s largest charitable hunger-relief organization. last summer’s “Despite drought, farmers have been very blessed these last few years. The right thing to do is help those who are less fortunate,” Gross said. “This money will be used to feed people in need throughout the state. People don’t go to the food bank because they want to; they go because they have nowhere else to turn.” A $100 donation allows Feeding South Dakota to provide 400 meals. It’s enough to feed a family for four weeks. A $145 donation will provide one child with a backpack full of food each weekend for an entire school year. “For many kids, the food they receive through Feeding South Dakota’s Backpack Program is the only food they’ll get during a weekend,” Gross said. “Picture your kids not having food on the weekend.” Gross and Chad Blindauer, president of the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council, presented a $25,000 check Saturday night to Matt Gassen, Feeding South Dakota’s executive director. “We’re incredibly excited to have received $25,000 from the South Dakota Corn Growers Association. We’ll be able to take that money and turn it into 100,000 meals,” Gassen said. “This goes a long ways in meeting our needs as we work to eliminate hunger in our state. This is an exciting time as we begin to partner with the ag industry, starting with South Dakota Corn. This partnership is very important to us and also to those we serve.” Feeding South Dakota is already partnering with the South Dakota Corn Utilization Council, South Dakota State University and the University of South Dakota in the Showdown Series, an athletic and academiccompetition between those two schools in the heart of corn country. That series is raising food and money for the hunger-relief agency. Agribusinesses that donated during the challenge are Cargill, Dupont Pioneer, First Bank & Trust, Monsanto, Premier Bank Card, Syngenta and WNAX Radio. Feeding South Dakota has distribution centers in Sioux Falls, Pierre and Rapid City. The organization distributesmore than 12 million pounds of food annually through a network of 450 charitable organizations across the state.  Those groups then distribute the food through various programs and food pantries.

Speeding penalty bill pulled over in House committee
By Elizabeth “Sam” Grosz, Community News Service
It may be a crime to speed in South Dakota, but it hasn’t been adding penalty points to a driver’s record for the past 20-some years. Action by the House Transportation Committee Jan. 22 during the S.D. Legislature ensures that practice will continue for the foreseeable future. Rep. Steve Hickey, Sioux Falls Republican, was trying again this year to add speeding back into the points system as it was prior to 1986. He called it “a kinder, gentler version” of last year’s bill that also had been defeated. Every other moving violation has points that are applied to a driver’s record. However, the joke, he said, about speeding is that motorists can “drive as fast as you can afford.” The purpose, Hickey said, was “not to suspend licenses, but to slow people down.” Fines, he said, have not done that. The bill would only affect a small fraction of the state’s drivers, he said. “Speeding is no laughing matter,” said Sen. Craig Tieszen, Rapid City Republican, adding, “speed is the leading cause of accidents in this state.” It is “ironic,” he said, “that you can get a point for driving too slow, but not for driving too fast.” While the Department of Public Safety had indicated to Hickey that they did not oppose the bill, some members thought it odd that the DOT was not testifying for the bill. Rep. Manny Steele, R-Sioux Falls, said he originally had signed on the bill as a sponsor, but was changing his mind and voting against it, saing it was “a bill aimed at a few hundred people who are abusive.” He called it “overkill,” citing the effort to keep track of the records. The committee voted to kill the bill, 9-4, by moving it to the session’s 41st day.

USDA/Farm Service Agency News
The Dewey, Meade & Ziebach County FSA offices would like to keep you informed of the following items important to USDA programs. If you have any questions please contact the Dewey County office at 865-3522 ext 2, Meade County at 347-4952 ext 2, or Ziebach County at 365-5179 ext 2. IMPORTANT DATES TO REMEMBER: February 19 – Sign-up begins for DCP & ACRE March 15 – Last day to purchase NAP coverage June 3 – Last day to sign-up for ACRE August 2 – Last day to sign-up for DCP Farm Service Agency Announces Important Program Updates WASHINGTON, Jan. 22, 2013—The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds producers that the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 extended the authorization of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (the 2008 Farm Bill) for many Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) commodity, disaster, and conservation programs through 2013. FSA administers these programs. The extended programs include, among others: the Direct and Counter-Cyclical Payment Program (DCP), the Average Crop Revenue Election Program (ACRE), and the Milk Income Loss Contract Program (MILC). FSA is preparing the following actions: FSA will begin sign-ups for DCP and ACRE for the 2013 crops on Feb. 19, 2013. The DCP sign-up period will end on Aug. 2, 2013; the ACRE sign-up period will end on June 3, 2013. The 2013 DCP and ACRE program provisions are unchanged from 2012, except that all eligible participants in 2013 may choose to enroll in either DCP or ACRE for the 2013 crop year. This means that eligible producers who were enrolled in ACRE in 2012 may elect to enroll in DCP
in 2013 or may re-enroll in ACRE in 2013 (and vice versa). All dairy producers’ MILC contracts are automatically extended to Sept. 30, 2013. Eligible producers therefore do not need to re-enroll in MILC. Specific details regarding certain modifications to MILC will be released soon. FSA will provide producers with information on program requirements, updates and signups as the information becomes available. Any additional details will be posted on FSA’s website.

What is good sportsmanship?
Good sportsmanship occurs when teammates, opponents, coaches and officials treat each other with respect. Kids learn the basics of sportsmanship from the adults in their lives, especially their parents and their coaches. Kids who see adults behaving in a sportsmanlike way gradually come to understand that the real winners in sports are those who know how to persevere and to behave with dignity – whether they win or lose a game. Parents can help their kids understand that good sportsmanship includes both small gestures and heroic efforts. It starts with something as simple as shaking hands with opponents before a game and includes acknowledging good plays made by others and accepting bad calls gracefully. Displaying good sportsmanship is not always easy. It can be tough to congratulate the opposing team after losing a close or important game. But the kids who learn how to do it will benefit in many ways. Kids who bully or taunt others on the playing field are not likely to change their behavior when in the classroom or in social situations. In the same way, a child who practices good sportsmanship is likely to carry the respect and appreciation of other people into every other aspect of life. Good sports are winners. Ask first or second graders who won a game, and they may answer, “I think it was a tie.” It is likely the question is not of any real interest at that age. Kids may be more eager to talk about the hits they got or the catches they almost made. But as they move into older and more competitive leagues, kids become more focused on winning. They often forget to have fun. Without constant reminders and good examples, they may also forget what behavior is appropriate before, during and after a sporting event. Kids who have coaches who care only about being in first place and say that anything goes as long as they win, pick up the message that it is okay to be ruthless on the field. If parents constantly pressure them to play better or second-guess their every move, kids get the message that they are only as good as their last good play – and they will try anything to make one. Adults who emphasize good sportsmanship, however, see winning as just one of several goals they would like their kids to achieve. They help young athletes take pride in their accomplishments and in their improving skills, so that the kids see themselves as winners, even if the scoreboard does not show the numbers going in their favor. The best coaches and parents encourage their kids to play fair, to have fun and to concentrate on helping the team while polishing their own skills. Fostering good sportsmanship. Remember the saying “Actions speak louder than words?” That is especially true when it comes to teaching your kids the basics of good sportsmanship. Your behavior during practices and games will influence them more than any pep talk or lecture you give them. Here are some suggestions on how to build sportsmanship in your kids: •Unless you are coaching your child’s team, you need to remember that you are the parent. Shout words of encouragement, not directions, from the sidelines (there is a difference). •If you are your kid's coach, don’t expect too much out of your own child. Don’t be harder on him or her than on anyone else on the team, but don’t play favorites either. •Keep your comments positive. Do not bad-mouth coaches, players or game officials. If you have a serious concern about the way that games or practices are being conducted, or if you are upset about other parents’ behavior, discuss it privately with the coach or with a league official. •After a competition, it is important not to dwell on who won or lost. Instead, try asking, “How did you feel you did during the game?” If your child feels weak at a particular skill, like throwing or catching, offer to work on it together before the next game. •Applaud good plays no matter who makes them. •Set a good example with your courteous behavior toward the parents of kids on the other team. Congratulate them when their kids win. •Remember that it is your kids, not you, who are playing. Don’t push them into a sport because it is what you enjoyed. As kids get older, let them choose what sports they want to play and decide the level of commitment they want to make. •Keep your perspective. It is just a game. Even if the team loses every game of the season, it is unlikely to ruin your child's life or chances of success. •Look for examples of good sportsmanship in professional athletes and point them out to your kids. Talk about the bad examples, too, and why they upset you. •Finally, do not forget to have fun. Even if your child isn’t the star, enjoy the game while you are thinking of all the benefits your child is gaining – new skills, new friends, and attitudes that can help all through life.

‘Social host’ bill defeated in Senate committee
By Elizabeth “Sam” Grosz, Community News Service
An attempt to set up misdemeanor charges for adults who provide parties for under-age drinkers failed to pass out of the Senate State Affairs Committee Jan. 23 at the S.D. Legislature in Pierre. The measure failed by one vote, following sometimes emotional debate, but backers vowed to keep working on the bill to make it acceptable to lawmakers. Sen. Larry Lucas, D-Mission, said there currently is no definition for the term “social host,” but is generally agreed that it refers to someone who provides the location but not necessarily the alcohol for a party. It is not a defense, said Lucas, for the adult to say that he was not present at the party. Joyce Glynn, West River rancher with her husband, Roger, related the story of how their son, Michael, lost his life following his 2006 high school graduation and attending the subsequent party where under-age teens were drinking. He died as the result of a onevehicle rollover where he was ejected from the car. That spring, Glynn said, 13 other teenagers died under similar circumstances. Obama, noted President Glynn, has said that “the first task of society is to keep our children safe.” She questioned whether we are doing everything possible to do that. She discussed the three components to keep children safe as education, legislation and enforcement. It is clear, she said, that it is illegal for anyone under the age of 21 to drink alcohol, and called this bill “another tool” to be used. With 5,894 minors charged with possession and 416 misdemeanor charges against adults, and 200 f those dismissed, Glynn said “we are sending a bad message to kids.” Glynn said the Attorney General’s office has voiced its support for the bill, as well as the South Dakota States Attorneys Association. Supporting testimony came from the Concerned Women of South Dakota. However, the bill’s current language was criticized by the State Farm Insurance Company lobbyist Dick Tieszen, and Roger Tellinghuisen, lobbyist for S.D. Trial Lawyers Association, as well as several members of the committee. Sen. Corey Brown, R-Gettysburg, questioned whether that one additional law would have changed anything that happened the night that Glynn’s son died. Sen. Larry Rhoden, R-Union Center, also questioned whether the law would be effective. The bill died 5-4 and was moved to the 41st day. After the meeting, Glynn said “I really thought with the State’s Attorney Association and the Attorney Generals’ Association, the people who have to enforce these laws and know the laws inside and out that are on the books, and whether they are enforceable or not and whether they are enough or not, I really thought their backing to the legislators would say ‘you folks are the expert in this field and so we are going to rely on your recommendation.’” That didn’t happen, she said. However, Glynn said “we will never know if this would keep someone from having a party at their house.” She said she will continue to fight for a law such as this.
Public safety bill clears Senate, next round the House
By Elizabeth “Sam” Grosz, Community News Service
The comprehensive overhaul of the way the state justice system deals with offenders recently passed the South Dakota Senate with only two dissenting votes. The bill is backed by a host of law enforcement professionals as a means of improving public safety, holding offenders accountable and controlling spending. The program is expected to save $160 million in the next 10 years in prison costs, according to Sen. Russell Olson, R-Wentworth, one of the Senators who served on a task force study group that created the bill. Olson spoke to the bill Jan. 24 in the Senate, along with Sens. Reid Holien, R-Watertown; Craig Tieszen, R-Rapid City; Larry Lucas, D-Mission; and James Bradford, D-Pine Ridge, who all worked on the task force. Bradford said it was a “highly emotional” issue for him, “maybe because I’m directly affected,” seeing a family member make a mistake, make restitution and come back home. “This is the first time that I go home,” said Bradford, that people will say, “hey, you know what? South Dakota really does care about us, about our problems.” The program is not soft on crime, said Olson, but rather is a smarter approach than was taken 10 years ago. It increases penalties for drug dealers, for example, but works outside of prison with drug offenders to turn their lives around. “There are dangerous people in our prisons and they need to stay there,” said Olson. Tieszen said the program is “the biggest policy that I have seen or been part of since I’ve been in the Legislature.” He added that 20-25 years ago, such a bill would never have gotten out of committee, but times have changed. “What we thought was right then,” Tieszen said, was not getting the desired results. The program will enhance and expand DUI and Drug Courts, expand the 24/7 program with swift and certain sanctions for those who deviate from it, and provide training and monitoring for offenders. The South Dakota Public Safety Improvement Act, SB70, now travels to the House for consideration.
