2012 in review
Area high school seniors can
now apply for the Golden West
Telecommunications college
scholarship. This year, 44 $1,000
scholarships will be awarded to
students from high schools in the
Golden West service area. In ad-
dition, students who attend home
school and students whose par-
ents live in the Golden West serv-
ice area but who attend a school
not included in the program are
eligible for one additional at-large
scholarship. The Golden West
Scholarship Program is designed
to help local students pursue de-
grees at vocational schools, mili-
tary academies and universities.
Golden West Scholarship ap-
plications are available from
guidance counselors at local high
schools and at-large applications
may be requested by calling 777
from any Golden West telephone
or by clicking on the scholarship
button at
ship-Deadlines. Application dead-
line is Friday, March 15. 
Golden West General Manager
Denny Law said the company
sees the scholarship program as a
way to strengthen and build
South Dakota’s rural communi-
ties. “At Golden West, we under-
stand how important it is to
invest in today's latest technolo-
gies, but also the importance of
investing in tomorrow's leaders,”
Law said. “We recognize that the
graduating seniors of today may
be the community leaders of to-
morrow who will help create
greater opportunity for everyone.”
Committees overseen by each
school’s superintended and/or
principal will select local scholar-
ship winners, while a committee
of Golden West employees will se-
lect the at-large recipient. Golden
West Scholarship recipients will
be chosen based on SAT or ACT
scores, high school transcripts
and scholarship applications. In
addition, the committees will con-
sider leadership in school, civic
and other extracurricular activi-
ties, personal character and the
applicant’s motivation to serve
and succeed. The student’s par-
ent(s) or legal guardian(s) must
reside within one of the Golden
West telephone service areas and
subscribe to a Golden West serv-
ice (phone, internet or cablevi-
sion). When two applicants are
extremely close in qualifications,

Tressa Gabriel, age 90,  of
Philip, died Tuesday, January 1,
2013, at the Hans P. Peterson
Memorial Hospital in Philip.
Tressa Belle Coleman was
born October 24, 1922, in Wood-
bine, Iowa, the daughter of Orrin
Wesley and Goldia Belle
(Thomas) Coleman. She lived
near Pisgah, Iowa with her par-
ents and older sister Erma, until
they left their home in the Loess
Hills to move to Haakon County
Northwest of Philip, South
Dakota, at the age of eight years.
They traveled at 45 mph in the
Model T Ford while their per-
sonal belongings and livestock
were shipped to Cottonwood,
South Dakota, on the train.
Here on the farm, she helped milk
cows, herd sheep, with chores
raising hogs and gardening. Her
mother taught her to preserve
vegetables and to prepare whole-
some meals.
Tressa attained an eighth
grade education at North Lincoln
School. Being too far to walk, they
rode horseback when the weather
permitted. In cold, snowy weather
Tressa had a room and boarded at
Axel Olson’s.
An experience she and Erma
talked about often, was Erma
taking a rein from her horse’s bri-
dle to kill a rattlesnake while she
was on the horse – something she
did often. One time, the snake
caught in the rein hooks, and the
horses spooked and ran full speed
home with the snake flying in the
air behind.
Tressa met her lifetime part-
ner when Floyd Gabriel arrived
at her parents’ to purchase some
hay. Floyd and Tressa developed
a companionship that lasted a
lifetime. Coleman’s were con-
cerned about Tressa and Floyd
dating. For them to go anywhere,
it was necessary to take Erma
and Frank, (Floyd’s brother),
along as chaperones.
Tressa and Floyd were married
March 17, 1941, in Philip. They
went to Iowa and Nebraska to
visit relatives for a honeymoon.
Quote of Floyd’s taken from
Tressa’s Bride’s Book. “We got
home in fine shape and found
everything was o.k. We were a lit-
tle wiser but just as foolish and
wished our honeymoon to con-
tinue indefinitely.”
This marriage was truly made
in Heaven. They were business
partners as well. At first they
summered sheep for neighbors as
well as themselves on land for
which they borrowed money to
purchase. When Floyd was away
helping neighbors whose family
member was serving in the war,
Tressa was responsible for their
business. After Beverly was born,
Tressa loaded her on the saddle
and took her to tend the sheep all
day long. Their only rest was a
nap in the shade of the sheep
wagon while the sheep bedded
down by water during the heat of
the day.
When Tressa was in late preg-
nancy with Larry, Mom, leading
Beverly, took a sheep buyer to
view the herd. He told Floyd “You
want too much for your sheep, but
I feel sorry for your wife so I’ll
give you what you want.”
Cattle replaced the sheep in
their business. Tressa still rode
horseback. “Dixie” her mare, was
still very important in her life.
In addition to Beverly and
Larry, a sister Ruby brightened
Tressa’s life. In 1981, Floyd,
Tressa and Ruby began traveling
the U.S. Tressa enjoyed continued
trips, collecting state plates and
shot glasses while seeing most of
the continental U.S. and part of
Canada. Tressa became an excel-
lent map reader, instructing
Ruby where to turn. Branson,
Missouri was the highlight of her
She was active in the Dowling
Community Church where she
was baptized. She was treasurer
for many years.
Tressa’s hobbies include play-
ing the piano, which was pur-
chased in 1956 to replace the
pump organ which she played by
ear. She also played the violin,
embroidered, scrapbooked her
children’s activities and trips, and
enjoyed reading historical fiction.
Leaving to mourn her loss, are
her three children Beverly
Hamann and her husband Herb
of Clear Lake, Larry Gabriel and
his wife Charlotte of Quinn, and
Ruby Gabriel of Pedro; a double
niece Cindy Nuzum of Buffalo;
four grandchildren; and six great-

Ruth Irene Capp, 86,
Spearfish, died on Friday, Janu-
ary 4, 2013 at Rapid City Re-
gional Hospital.
Ruth was born July 25, 1926
on her grandparents’ ranch near
Crookston, Nebraska to Clio
(Westlake) and C. Chester
Searby. Her parents lived on the
Searby ranch near Long Valley,
South Dakota. She was later
joined by eight siblings (seven
brothers and one sister).
Ruth attended elementary
school at rural grade schools near
her home and later attended Lin-
coln High School in Lincoln, Ne-
braska (staying with her aunt).
Her parents moved during her
high school years to her grand-
parents’ ranch near Crookston,
Nebraska and Ruth graduated
from Valentine High School.
Ruth obtained a teaching certifi-
cate while attending high school
but instead of becoming a teacher,
Ruth opted to marry and raise a
family.  She married William
(Bill) Capp on August 1, 1944 at
the Searby ranch house in Ne-
braska, in the same house where
she had been born.
For the first year of their mar-
ried life, the newlyweds herded
sheep for Bill’s brother, Howard
Capp, near Faith, SD.  In 1945
they purchased a ranch near
Long Valley, SD which they oper-
ated for 18 years. Four children
were born to Bill and Ruth: Larry,
Carol, Linda and Dorothy.
In 1963, they sold their ranch
and bought a motel in Spearfish,
SD. They operated the Capp
Motel on Jackson Blvd. until 1980
when they retired and moved to
their home on Polley Drive. Ruth
enjoyed fishing and camping with
Bill until his death in 1995.
She was an active member of
Our Savior’s Lutheran Church
and played a leading role in or-
ganizing the quilting group there.
Ruth also served as ALCW presi-
Ruth was a volunteer at the
Black Hills Passion Play for over
twenty years and loved her role
as a water bearer. She was a
founding member and also served
as president of the Spearfish
chapter of the VFW Women’s
Auxiliary. She was on the Senior
Citizens’ Center Board for a time
and did volunteer work at the
Spearfish Hospital gift shop. 
Ruth also enjoyed letting oth-
ers know that she was thinking of
them and was well known for the
birthday, anniversary and holi-
day cards she sent to friends and
family.  Her family always mar-
veled at her beautiful handwrit-
Her parents, husband, two
brothers (Kenneth, Nyle), her sis-
ter (Lila) and an infant great-
grandson preceded her in death.
She is survived by her children;
son, Larry (Penny) Capp of
Spearfish; daughters, Carol (Nor-
van) Ness and Linda Lester of
Spearfish, Dorothy (Allen)
Hilburn of Allen, Texas; eleven
grandchildren, nineteen great
grandchildren, and one great,
great granddaughter, her broth-
ers Jay (Ruth Mary) Searby, Carl
Searby, Earl Searby, Wiley
Searby and James Searby plus
numerous nieces and nephews.
Funeral Services were at
11:00 AM, Wednesday, January
9, 2013 at Our Saviors Lutheran
Church in Spearfish.  Interment
will follow at Rose Hill Cemetery.
Arrangements are under the
care of Fidler-Isburg Funeral
Chapels and Crematory Service.

Drought worsens - June 2012
considered among Top Ten Worst
in 100 years. Continued dry and
warm conditions have continued
to worsen conditions in South
Dakota, nearly all the Corn Belt,
as well as much of the nation says
Dennis Todey, SDSU Extension
State Climatologist in his July 13
drought summery.
The hot weather this month
continues here in the Faith area,
and throughout the state. We had
a couple days last week that it
reached 100º or more. These hot
temperatures have certainly
dried up the pasture grasses and
create high fire danger. A few of
the ranchers are selling off part of
their herds because of little grass
to feed. Another storm moved
through the area this past Mon-
day night. We didn’t get much
here in town, but the north part
of the country got hail and up to
3” in some areas.

We had temperatures a little
on the cooler side last week, in the
80s and low 90s. Felt much better
than the 100s the week before.
According to weatherunder-
ground.com, Faith had a record
high of 111º on July 19th, and tied
the record high of 108º on July
20th! We received about an inch
of much needed rain last Tuesday
night, some in the area got more,
some less.

We had a lovely weekend
watching basketball. Saturday
morning we drove to Spearfish by
9:30 A.M. to watch daughter Jill’s
son, Daniel, play a game of bas-
ketball. Our trip then continued
to Buffalo to watch the Longhorns
take on the Harding County
Ranchers. Folks, if you missed
the boys A team playing the
Ranchers you missed the game of
the season! Despite the fact that
some of our A team starters were
sick, we stayed with the Buffalo
team which had not lost a game
up till they meet the Longhorns.
Faith ended up winning by one
point in a down to the last second
game. The boys of the B team
subbed in and really pulled it out
of the hat. I’m predicting the B
team will come on and be the
team to watch in coming seasons.
Senior Reggie Rhoden was a key
player who got in there and
fought for the ball, besides mak-
ing those free throws that really
counted! Sophmores Josh Afdahl,
Dalton Sheridan, Jarius Halli-
gan, Rio Hulm and Glenn Palmer
made a difference when they
came in. It was a thriller! I also
wanted to compliment Cody
Trainor on the good sportsman-
ship he displayed when he took a
second to shake hands with #20
Harley Mollman when Mollman
fouled out of the game. Guys, it’s
just a game but gestures like that
last a lifetime! I was so pleased to
see it. Congratulations to all the
FHS moms and dads on such
great young men. They represent
our town ! Thanks boys!
Speaking of the moms and
dads, Faith had more fans at the
game than Buffalo did! I saw lots
of grandmas, grandpas, aunts,
uncles, cousins, siblings and die-
hard fans there. What a wonder-
ful following of people. I have
wondered if this comes from the
many years Faith did not have a
school bus to transport students
and the parents did all the trans-
portation?  I graduated in 1971
and there was no bus. What was
the first year Faith had a bus? In
recent years parents got together
and bought a bus so their kids
could travel safely. The old bus
provided by the school broke
down a lot and the miles had
mounted up on it. The school just
did not have the money for a bet-
ter one. No one whined to the gov-
ernment or went online and
complained or carried on, they
just got together got the money
and bought a good used one. We
don’t see that on the evening
news, but it should be! The “We
can do it” spirit of Faith Country
is to be applauded. Keep it
up!  I’ve also wondered who chose
our school colors and why those
colors? Don’t get me wrong, I love
orange and black but most
schools have something and
white. Does anyone know?
Tucker and Bev Hudson were
New Year’s Eve guests of Ed and
Joyce Buccholz in Belle Fouche.
Many of the area people at-
tended a New Year’s Eve party at
Jade Hlavka’s shop. They had
fireworks at 9:00 so the little kids
would still be awake. Quirt was
thrilled with the fireworks and
had a great time. Thanks to the
Hlavkas for the “awesome” party!
Duane and Sharon Keffeler
were New Year’s supper guests at
Tucker Hudsons.
The Marcus Church will be
holding their Winter Extrava-
ganza at the community center in
Union Center Saturday, January
19th. There will be a soup buffet,
and dessert  bar, free will dona-
tion, silent auction, fish pond and
more. Come over, bring the fam-
ily, enjoy the day and help the
Marcus Church. Without your
help the church may not be able
to spread God’s word to a world
that really needs Him!
Sunday, we attended a baby
shower at the White Owl Hall for
Krystal Keffeler and son Brayden
Keffeler. There were about 35
people in attendance including
Krystal’s grandmother, Mae Kef-
fler, age 99! What a lady! She
turns 100 in April but looks like
she’s 80 and gets around darn
good. Congratulations to the Kef-
flers on a special addition to their
family! He’s a cutie!
Kelly, Codi, Kimber and Kinley
Fees attended the shower, too.
Kinley, age 3, kept saying,
“Momma those ladies are waking
that baby up!” I’m guessing she’s
been in trouble for waking a baby
up so you ladies need to
straighten up and quit bothering
that baby! I enjoyed Kinley’s com-
ments ‘cause she was right!
As we left the shower, Duane
Keffeler was telling me about an
article Betty Quinn Matkins
wrote several years ago telling
about her dad’s bootlegging still.
He said she had written this story
and talked about the revenuers
watching the place so he had left
her locked in the still room for a
time before he could safely get her
out. Does anyone know of this
story or have a copy of it? I’m sure
we’d all love to read it.
Vonnie O’Dea sent me the fol-
lowing news. Thanks Vonnie.
Christmas, all 3 girls and fam-
ilies were home from Sunday
through the evening of the 25th,
also a friend from Nebraska. Had
15 and some were sleeping on the
floor. All attended services at the
Spiritual Center Christmas Eve.
Kind of lonely when everyone
left.  Sunday,  the 30, Donnie and
Marcia Eymer and Billie and
Karyl Sandal and Jim and I met
for dinner in Philip to celebrate
Karyl's bithday. Played cards in
the afternoon and just enjoyed
the day together.  Amy Deichert
spent some of her vacation here
and she left for Chadron Satur-
day for college.  Saturday, Garrett
Schweitzer and his friend, Je-
remy, were dinner guests and
cards players. It sounds like a
wonderful time at the O’Dea’s
house. What memories you guys
created Vonnie! Lucky you!

It was a packed White Owl
Hall on Sunday afternoon for a
potluck and baby shower for
Brayden John Keffeler.
Brayden is the son of Kristal
Keffeler and Matt Dutt. Brayden
came into the world on Dec. 3,
2012 in Rapid City and weighed 7
lbs 11oz. and was 20 1/2 inches
long. Blessed to be his maternal
grandparents are Roger and
Diane Keffeler of Enning. Many
friends and family, including
Brayden’s 99 year old great
grandmother Mae Keffeler, were
there to shower the baby with
gifts, enjoy good food, and fellow-
ship. We welcome little Brayden
to Central Meade County.
It was an exciting game at Buf-
falo, SD on Saturday night as
Faith won the tight game by one
point in the last few seconds of
the game. The Faith boys and
girls had a double header that af-
ternoon/evening and all Faith jv
and varsity teams won hard
fought games. The boys and girls
from Central Meade County are
Caden Smiley, Reggie Rhoden,
and Cheney Keffeler who are on
the varsity team, Wyatt Scheulke
plays on JV, Paige Brink is a var-
sity starter while Brandy Enright
and Tanielle Arneson play JV and
some varsity. So far the Faith
varsity teams are undefeated.
For those who would like to
keep up on the details of the Faith
Longhorns you can google or go to
SDSportsbuzz.com and check out
the basketball section. It is an in-
teresting rundown on the games
and the players.

About 15 tumblers are in full
swing with weekly practices. I
have had many reports of tum-
bling, cartwheels, etc. taking
place in the homes of some of our
tumblers. No performances have
been scheduled as of yet, but we
will post a date fairly soon.
Cody Rhoden was back for
Christmas vacation from Fort
Rucker, Alabama. He returned to
Alabama on January 1 and will
continue his flight schooling with
SEER and more training until
November. He enjoyed his visit
home and looks forward to being
finished with his schooling and
coming home late this year.
Some families from the Red
Owl community got together for a
sledding party over the holidays.
Some of the families who enjoyed
the fun were Lyle & Deb Wilcox's,
Justin and Megan Longs, Jeff
Longs, Arnesons, Grubls, etc.
There will be Rural Neighbors
this Thursday, Jan.10 at the
Community Baptist Church fel-
lowship room. Thank you to
Casey Brink and Donna Cam-
mack for helping host this
monthly community get together.
All are welcome.
It was the winter of 1935, there
was at least 10 inches of snow on
the level and draws and swales
were badly drifted, it was also
very cold. The government snow
plow was finally getting rural
people plowed out. Some people
were getting in desperate need of
groceries and medications, as
most hadn’t been to town for
three weeks or more.
Late one afternoon, the plow
had gotten to the Delehan ranch
so Eddie and his mother Leah
had hurried off to Faith – not
waiting until morning when the
roads might be drifted shut again.
The aged grandmother, who lived
with them, stayed home.
Leah liked to visit so she
shopped slowly and eight o’clock
soon rolled around. By then it was
dark and looking stormy. Eddie
and his mother spent another
half hour or more trying to decide
what to do! They were afraid to
start home for fear they’d get
stuck in unseen drifts or an ensu-
ing storm.
My dad, Matt Clasen, was get-
ting up in years and after a long,
cold day of outside work, was in
bed and asleep by eight o’clock.
The old-fashioned wall tele-
phone rang. It was Leah Delehan
wanting to know if Matt would go
to their ranch (2 /12 miles away)
and spend the night with
Grandma Davis, as they didn’t
like her being alone. She was in
her late eighties and quite frail.
Matt got up and dressed in his
warmest (no insulated bibs and
jackets then). Mary tied a trian-
gled dish towel over his lower face
and neck and with a wry chuckle,
Matt stuck a flashlight in his
jacket saying, “Just in case.”
He then opened the door and
stepped out into the cold, dark,
stormy night. He called at 11:30
or so when he had gotten there.
He walked home the next
morning about 7 o’clock to begin
his own chores. He did not ask for
pay nor was he offered any. It was
just what neighbors did for each

Dan, Glenn and Margaret Fo-
gelman were in Rapid City on
Wednesday to keep an appoint-

in Sturgis that day and said it
was nasty there with snowing
and blowing.

Temperatures were not nearly
as warm here last week as they
were in the Hills. Rapid City was
in the 40s-50s the end of the week
and weekend, we were in the 20s.
Doesn’t seem fair, but it could be
a lot colder! Although we were in
the mid 30s on Monday.
I received some late Christmas
news to share.
Lou Ann Steen of Faith cooked
up the Christmas turkey and all
the trimmings at Albert Steen
Jr’s rural home. Her children,
Christopher of Faith, and Eugene
of Newell, with her sister, Jomay
Steen of McLaughlin, enjoyed the
meal. Later in the afternoon, the
family celebrated Lou Ann’s
birthday with more gifts and food.
Bobbie and Mark Misar and
their family were unable to at-
tend, but spent the day with his
family in Madison. Jomay spent
her entire Christmas break at the
ranch. Gene stayed for Christmas
Eve and the following day before
returning to Newell for work.
Christopher had completed work
as part of a road construction
crew about a week before Christ-
mas. Albert enjoyed the extra vis-
itors and has been slowly
regaining his strength over the
past two weeks.
I had a visit with Marge Hoff-
man on the phone Monday.
Lynda and Gary Galinat arrivced
from Arizona on the 23rd to spend
Christmas. They went to Pierre
and stayed until the 27th. Christy
Galinat flew in on the 29th and
they, along with the Pauls spent
New Year’s Eve in Deadwood and
watched the ball drop at mid-
night. Christy couldn’t fly out
when she was supposed to due to
bad weather elsewhere so she
spent another night.
We lost another one of our for-
mer Faith school teachers. Ber-
nice Lee passed away over the
weekend and her services will be
this Friday at 10 AM at the
Bethel Lutheran Church. Our
condolences to her family. Bernice
taught elementary grades for
many years in the Faith school.
She will be long remembered by
many of those students.
Friday night, Keith, Roxi and
Clayton Gaaskjolen stopped by
for a short visit at Garnet’s. Keith
and Roxi had gone to Rapid City
to pick up Clayton to take home
for a few days. His parents,
Zachary and Jeny Gaaskjolen
were spending four days in Stur-
gis where Zachary attended meet-
ings with his boss. Zachary is a
manager of the business in Stan-
ley, ND so came for their annual
Garnet Gaaskjolen and Dee
Ann Loomis were New Year’s Day
dinner guests of Pastor Terry and
Diana Bottjen. As usual, a deli-
cious meal was served.
Dave and Eldora Fischbach
went to Rapid City on Friday to
spend a few days. Eldora had a
presentation on Saturday for up-
coming quilt classes she will be
teaching this year. Dave came
home Sunday. Eldora has a few
other appointments this week.
Faith students started the last
half of the year on Monday after
a two week Christmas vacation.
It doesn’t seem like the year
should be half over already, but it
probably does to the students.

PIERRE, S.D. - A cornerstone
of Gov. Dennis Daugaard’s eco-
nomic development plan for
South Dakota includes building
on South Dakota’s competitive
advantage – agriculture.
Over the past 18 months, the
Governor and South Dakota De-
partment of Agriculture (SDDA)
have been very engaged with the
agricultural community.
“Knowing that agriculture is
the primary industry investing in
our rural communities, we have
an opportunity to set the stage for
the next generation of livestock
production in South Dakota,” said
state Secretary of Agriculture
Walt Bones. “In human terms, it’s
also a dialogue about the next
generation of farmers and ranch-
ers in our state.”
The Governor’s Coordinated
Livestock Development Initiative
has four goals.
Goal No. 1 is to communicate
South Dakota’s vision for live-
stock production. Starting this
month, SDDA will hold forums
across the state to discuss the
challenges and advantages of
livestock development in South
“South Dakota has progres-
sive, forward-thinking entrepre-
neurs who understand the
exciting potential of today’s agri-
business marketplace,” Bones
said. “We’re continuing the con-
versation about the challenges
and advantages South Dakota
has to increase the number of
livestock in our state.”
The second goal is to support a
local presence for agricultural de-
velopment. SDDA congratulates
and supports the efforts of  the
First District Association of Local
Governments  in gathering site-
ready locations for livestock de-
velopment in Moody, Grant and
Brookings counties.
Goal No. 3 is to provide re-
sources and training for South
Dakota livestock producers.
SDDA is providing support and
services to producers through col-
laborative training opportunities
and updated livestock develop-
ment checklists.
The final goal is to explore
ways to embrace local control
when it comes to livestock devel-
opment. “We have listened to the
concerns expressed by townships
and counties,” Secretary Bones
said. “Their issues have been
SDDA is currently working
with legislators, industry stake-
holders and local governments on
ways to support and be a resource
for livestock development.
“Our livestock producers are
held to a high standard,” Bones
said. “With abundant feed, water,
affordable land, processing capa-
bilities and a favorable business
climate, we think there is no bet-
ter place to be in livestock produc-
Looking Ahead to 2013
In recent days, Congressional
leaders came together with an
agreement to provide middle class
tax relief and extend protection
for two million unemployed
This agreement provides some
relief for all of us who are frus-
trated with the gridlock that
often dominates Washington. It is
also good news for the 98 percent
of American families and 97 per-
cent of small businesses who were
protected from a tax increase.
At the same time, I am disap-
pointed that Congress was unable
to pass a multi-year Food, Farm
and Jobs Bill. Congress did ex-
tend some 2008 Farm Bill pro-
grams that will prevent a spike in
the price of dairy and other com-
modities. However, the extension
fails to provide any of the long-
term certainty that we know is
vital for rural America.
At the start of this New Year,
my New Year’s resolution is to re-
double our efforts at USDA to
achieve a strong and defensible
safety net for producers in times
of disaster; a comprehensive ef-
fort to build up the biobased econ-
omy; support for conservation
efforts that are protecting our
soil, water and forest land; in-
creased resources for important
agricultural research; and sup-
port for safer, more nutritious
food for all Americans.
That’s why I will continue to
work with Congress to encourage
passage of a comprehensive,
multi-year Food Farm and Jobs
Bill. Such legislation will help us
at USDA to carry out our mission,
and provide more certainty for
those in rural America.
Our small towns and rural
communities are too important to
be left out or let down. I look for-
ward to continuing the effort to
get this important work done
without further delay.
Ag Secretary Vilsack’s
tion. We look forward to helping
our current and new livestock
producers, and we appreciate the
demand they create for our grains
and forages.”
Agriculture is South Dakota's
No. 1 industry, generating nearly
$21 billion in annual economic ac-
tivity and employing more than
80,000 South Dakotans. The
South Dakota Department of
Agriculture's mission is to pro-

South Dakota Farmers Union
President Doug Sombke released
the following statement after the
U.S. House and Senate passed a
farm bill extension provision as
part of the fiscal cliff bill.
“This farm bill extension is a
complete disappointment for
rural America,” Sombke said.
“Our elected leaders have let us
down, and everyone in rural
America will be impacted by the
lack of a five-year farm bill.
“It’s incredibly disappointing
that the full U.S. Senate and the
House Agriculture Committee
both passed separate versions of
a five-year farm bill, and now all
of that hard work is being ig-
nored. Leadership in the U.S.
House failed rural America by re-
fusing to even hold a vote on the
farm bill. The result is now a
piecemeal approach via the fiscal
cliff deal by picking and choosing
which programs get continued
funding, others that will have
only discretionary funding, and
some that are cut altogether.
Farmers and ranchers need cer-
tainty, and an extension doesn’t
give us any.
“We’ll continue to work with
our elected leaders and we hope
that at some point they’ll realize
how important a five-year farm
bill is to the food supply and the
future of our country. Right now
it appears that they don’t know,
and don’t care about the impact a
five-year farm bill has on where
our food comes from.”
The South Dakota CPA Society
is once again sponsoring “ASK A
CPA”, a call-in program to give
the public an opportunity to ask a
certified public accountant (CPA)
about business and personal tax
matters, planning for yearend,
general business and accounting
issues, referrals and other finan-
cial concerns. The event takes
place Thursday, January 17th,
2013, from 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM
In addition to the call in pro-
gram, we have created some online
resources from previous asked
questions, along with some infor-
mation on new tax laws and devel-
opments.The online resources can
be found on the Society website at
www.sdcpa.org. The online re-
source allows the public the ability
to get answers to frequently
asked questions anytime. In addi-
tion, there is a newly launched
national website
www.360taxes.org, sponsored by
the AICPA, offering tips, check-
lists and help during tax season
and year round.
The intent of the “ASK A
CPA” program is to assist individ-
uals and small business owners
who don’t typically hire a CPA
with questions regarding tax and
financial situations. CPAs help
ensure the correct amount of tax
is being paid and that income, de-
duction and credits are properly
reported. New tax laws and their
potential benefits are also of in-
terest and value to many.
If you have lost or changed
jobs, expanded your family, pur-
chased or sold property or experi-
enced any other life changing
event during 2012, ASK A CPA
may be able to help you under-
stand the changing and complex
tax rules for individuals and busi-
nesses. The fiscal cliff has many
tax payers concerned about the
impact on them personally and
this is a unique opportunity to
visit with a tax professional
about what this legislations
means to them.
