The Faith City Council short-
ened their July 2nd meeting by
pulling several items from the
Following the approval of min-
utes, claims and agenda, the first
item discussed was the repair of
the water tower. Dupper said he
had talked to Maguire Iron about
the project. This will be a two
week process. The city crew will
drain the tower and divert it to
the blue tank. Water pressure is
expected to fluctuate these two
weeks, and it may be slightly dis-
colored but that’s nothing to be
worried about. Maguire Iron will
sandblast the tower, and give it
two coats of epoxy, which will
have to dry in between. Council
discussed doing this later but de-
cided it was best to go ahead and
get it done as soon as possible,
and accepted Maguire’s bid. Dup-
per will talk to Maguire and see
when they can come.
Council retired into executive
session at 7:10 for about 20 min-
utes to discuss personnel.
The hearing for the issuance of
an alcoholic beverage license for
the Faith Stock Show was held at
7:30. Colt Haines, Stock Show
President was present to speak
for the license. He said that he
had visited with Lonny Collins
and they agreed to set the tent up
at the south edge of Lonny’s
Steak House and run it down the
first block. Mayor Haines stated
that the open container law will
be in effect just as it is for the
Lone Tree Bar. Council approved
the Stock Show’s license.
Council retired back into exec-
utive session for further discus-
sion of personnel issues.
Council tabled any decision on
reimbursing lifeguards for their
certification at this time until
their next meeting.
Discussion on the road north of
town was the next item on their
agenda. At their last meeting
they decided not to mag water the
road. Peggy Riley said her brother
didn’t mind the idea of paving the
road but was concerned about an
increase in taxes, etc. She asked
if they could go back to their orig-
inal plan to mag water the road.

Back in the late 60s, Faith
Chamber held an Appreciation
Day each year. This was a big day
back then for the businesses to
show their appreciation to their
customers, and everyone always
had a good time. The City of Faith
is bringing that event back on
Saturday, July 20th, and invite
you to town for the day. There
are many activities planned this
year, including those old-time
drawings on Main Street.
The day will open with city-
wide rummage sales beginning at
8:00 am. If you haven’t had your
rummage sale yet this year, or
even if you have, this might be a
good opportunity to have another.
As they say, your trash could be
someone else’s treasure. Contact
the Faith City Office to be put on
the list.
Several crafters have already
reserved their booth space for the
Craft Fair which will open at 9:00
am and run most of the day.
There will also be a Farmers
Market. Those of you with garden
items or baked goods, may set up
your wares in the parking lot at
the Information Center. This will
run from 9:00 - 4:00. Who doesn’t
like fresh home-grown produce?
There’s something for the kids,
too. At 10:00 am, children of all
ages may bring their sidewalk
chalk and show their talent in the
Sidewalk Chalk Contest. Kids can
draw on the sidewalks on the first
block of Main Street, east or west
side. Prizes will be awarded for
1st and 2nd place in three divi-
sions: Up to 6 years, 7-12 years,
and 13 and up.
The Girls Scouts will have a
hot dog stand set up throughout
the day so you can have lunch and
support these young girls.
The swimming pool will be
open in the afternoon with free
swimming and pool games. We
know it will be a hot day, what
better way to cool off!
Businesses will be having spe-
cials in their stores, and registra-
tion boxes will be set up in each.
Register throughout the day for
your chance to win prizes at the
drawing to be held on Main Street
at 4:30. This is their way of show-
ing you their appreciation for sup-
porting them all year long.
The day will close with
karaoke at the Lone Tree Bar
that night.
Plan to be in Faith for Appre-
ciation Day on July 20th. It’s
going to be a fun time for all!

As they had to notify the County
the day following their decision it
is too late to do it now. Karen In-
ghram said the dust really hangs
on the road, especially with the
trucks. James Inghram wondered
how much it would cost to chip
seal a test area. He said some
gravel really packs hard and it
would sure help cut down on the
dust problem. He visited with
Lane Cammack about gravel at
their pit. Crushed gravel runs
around $3 a ton. Inghram sug-
gested maybe running a test strip
from the speed limit sign as far as
his property line, about 1/4 of a
mile, or somewhere in that vicin-
ity. Council approved getting a
quote from Cammacks for gravel
and hauling for a 1/8 mile test
area, from the speed limit sign
going north.
Council tabled a decision on re-
imbursing lifeguards for their cer-
tification fees until the July 16th
Greg Fisher came before Coun-
cil in regard to his concern of the
drainage on his property by Matt
Helms. When we have a hard rain
the water seems to backup in the
culverts from Pratts and Helms to
Smiths. He has looked over the
culverts at the school, Dueters,
and along that street. Some of the
stretch is fine, but one thing he
noticed is that the one at Dueters
is at a slight angle and thought
maybe that slowed down some of
the flow. The culverts at Smiths
seems to be partially collapsed.
He would like the City to check
and see where the problem lies.
Mayor Haines suggested he get
together with Smiths and see if
they can work something out be-
tween them. Fisher wondered
what the city’s obligation is to
make sure that the water drains
properly. Debbie said that, as far
as she knew, the city is not obli-
gated for anything as it is on pri-
vate property. Council asked
Greg to come to the next meeting
when Attorney Bogue is present
so they can get the proper legal
Nuisance properties was the
next topic on their agenda. Coun-
cil approved sending out letters to
three property owners requesting
they clean up their property or
the city will take necessary ac-
Debbie wanted it known that
they will be having karaoke at the
bar on the 20th for Appreciation
Council discussed having
someone at the entrances at Dur-
kee Lake to collect donations for
the fireworks. Some members
wouldn’t be available. No definite
Mayor Haines passed out com-
mittee lists to members. He ap-
pointed three members to each
committee and wants them to ap-
point a chairman and meet each
month before the second meeting
and present any information they
gather so all members know
what’s happening. He wants the
committees to meet with depart-
ment heads and figure out their
needs for the next year. He would
also like them to work on a five-
year plan for needs. They will be
working on the budget soon so
would like to know what their
needs are. These meetings are
open to the public.
Reed Henschel is working on
repairs at the ice house. Door are
being replaced and a deck of pon-
derosa pine is being added. Riley
asked if there was any funds for
paint, and if it could be done be-
fore Stock Show. Debbie said the
grant defines what they can do.
Painting probably won’t be done
before Stock Show. Annelle Af-
dahl also said the Exhibit Board
wanted to know about painting,
and what there was for funds. At
this time, Riley stated that we
need to do a better job of promot-
ing Faith. She was disappointed
that the Stock Show wasn’t well
advertised in a recent vacation
Mayor Haines commented that
City property is being abused. Ve-
hicles, etc. are being parked and
left. Council held further discus-
sion on the nuisance properties in
town. Members thought a notice
should be placed in the newspa-
paper about abandoned vehicles,
etc., then a letter be sent to the
owners. Currently property own-
ers are allowed to have one vehi-
cle per license parked on the
street. Members were concerned
about some vehicles being parked
in yards for a lengthy time if they
are not operational. These are not
only an eye-sore but they are a
health issue. If the area can’t be
mowed, it’s an easy place to at-
tract snakes and skunks. Mem-
bers will be going around town
and making lists to present at the
next council meeting.

Lifeguards aren’t the only ones
who’ll be saving lives this sum-
mer. People like you and your
neighbor will be, too…by donat-
ing blood.
According to Lori Liebman,
United Blood Services’ Donor Re-
cruitment Director, participation
drops off slightly at summer
blood drives. At the same time,
donations throughout the region
drop in the summer because high
schools and colleges, which are
enthusiastic blood drive sponsors,
are not in session. In this area, a
whopping 10% percent of the
local blood supply comes from
high school and college students.
When those students are on sum-
mer vacation, it’s up to the com-
munity to make up the difference.
“It’s no secret,” Liebman says.
“People simply are much busier
than they are at other times of
the year. Although donors might
have other things to do, patients
continue to need blood. Nearly
185 blood donations are required
each week to meet the needs of
hospital patients.” Eligible blood
donors are encouraged to give
blood regularly to keep hospital
shelves stocked with lifesaving
Liebman urges residents to
adopt United Blood Services’ slo-
gan: “Find the Hero in You.
Make time to save lives, or re-
cruit others in your place if you
are unable to give. We encourage
donors to donate at least three
times a year- each donation can
save up to two people’s lives!”
All donors will receive a free
cholesterol test with every blood
donation. Anyone interested in
donating at the Catholic Daugh-
ters blood drive on Thursday,
July 11th, can call Amy Ulrich.
The drive will be held from 1:00
to 5:30 at St. Joseph’s Catholic
Church fellowship hall. You must
bring your photo ID.

Employer mandate delay sig-
nals larger problems for Oba-
Recently, the Obama adminis-
tration announced its plans to
delay implementation of one of
the key components of the presi-
dent’s signature health care legis-
lation, the employer mandate.
This provision, which mandates
financial penalties to businesses
with more than 50 employees
that fail to provide government-
approved health insurance to its
employees, will be delayed from
2014 until 2015.
For more than three years,
President Obama has been assur-
ing the American people that pro-
visions in ObamaCare such as the
employer mandate will help lower
premium costs and allow Ameri-
cans to keep the insurance they
preferred. Yet, businesses across
South Dakota and the rest of the
country have lamented that the
legislation is stifling hiring deci-
sions and taking away financial
resources that would normally be
invested in their business. Ac-
cording to a Wells Fargo/Gallup
Small Business Index survey,
nearly 4 in 10 small business
owners are holding back hiring
because of costs associated with
implementing ObamaCare.
Not only does the health care
law mandate coverage for em-
ployees, but the law also includes
a provision that mandates em-
ployers include certain govern-
ment-determined “essential bene-
fits” for any employer-sponsored
health plan, leaving almost no
flexibility for an employer to de-
termine what is best for his or her
employees. Many of these re-
quired benefits increase the cost
of plans for employers and em-
ployees alike.
According to a recent Gallup
poll from June of 2013, 52 percent
of respondents said they disap-
prove of ObamaCare, up from 48
percent last fall. The same poll re-
vealed that for every one person
who believes they will be better
off under ObamaCare, two believe
they will be worse off. Opposition
to the president’s health law is
growing, and will continue to
grow, as Americans realize that
the law is built upon broken
promises that will result in
higher health care costs and more
While I am pleased that busi-
nesses will be shielded for an-
other year from the onerous and
costly requirements associated
with employer mandate, the
delay provides further evidence
that ObamaCare is not the solu-
tion to our health care problems
and that this massive expansion
of government is a step in the
wrong direction. Rather than uni-
laterally breaking a law that the
president and his allies in Con-
gress proposed, the administra-
tion should have worked with
Congress to devise a solution.
It’s time to repeal this broken
legislation and replace it with
real health care reforms that will
give Americans access to the
health care they need, from the
doctor they choose, at a lower
Drought concerns eased last
month with widespread rainfall
and near average temperatures
in South Dakota. At this point,
the climate outlook for July re-
mains uncertain.
"Copious amounts of rain fell
in the northeastern counties in
June," said Laura Edwards,
SDSU Extension Climate Field
Specialist. "Some locations re-
ported 3 to 5 inches above aver-
age rainfall for the month. That is
nearly double average for those
areas between Marshall and
Deuel counties."
Edwards added that the south-
western corner of South Dakota
remains in moderate to severe
drought going in to the month of
"Unfortunately, the southern
Black Hills and areas between
Fall River and Todd counties con-
tinued to be much drier than av-
erage in June," said Edwards.
Climatologically, the summer
is traditionally a dry season for
those counties. This, Edwards ex-
plains means that further
drought recovery will be unlikely
in the coming months.
"As temperatures increase, so
does water demand by plants, an-
imals and people," she said.
Edwards said according to the
latest monthly and seasonal
drought outlooks from the Cli-
mate Prediction Center a drought
is expected to persist in this area
for July and through September.
June's temperatures have helped
crop producers across the state,
said Dennis Todey, SDSU State
"Temperatures in June were
slightly below average for the
month, but nothing like what the
state experienced earlier this
year," Todey said. "Statewide,
June temperature was just a de-
gree or two below the long-term
average. This created a nice envi-
ronment for crop growth and
rangeland recovery over the last
few weeks." 
By the end of June, corn fields
appeared to be in good shape, and
soybean fields were improving.
Field recovery
A path of severe storms passed
through eastern South Dakota on
June 21. Most reports indicate
that damaged fields were able to
be replanted after hail, high
winds and tornadoes affected the
US-212 corridor that afternoon.
Looking ahead to the month of
July, Todey said computer cli-
mate models are scattered in
their predictions for the northern
"There are no clear signs of
wetter or drier than average con-
ditions for the month," he
said.  "Extended periods of exces-
sive heat don't seem to be forth-
In the early part of the month,
models predict that South Dakota
will be in the path of cooler and
drier air from Canada, as high
pressure sits in the western U.S.
"This isn't to say we are en-
tirely cut off from moisture,"
Todey said.  "We will likely get
small amounts of rainfall here
and there from more sporadic
Edwards and Todey agree that
the early part of July will be
pleasant. The sunny skies and
moderately warm temperatures
will be a boon to gardens and row
crops in the region, and will also
prevent severe heat issues for

everyone that was there comes
back and many more.  Misty Si-
mons Walker and family did a lot
of work to make it a great day.
Thanks.  Genealogy updates are
really needed from all the fami-
lies as a new printout, book or
similar correspondence is going to
be made so all that are interested
can have the information. If you
are willing to update yours, you
can send it to me via email at

I don't know about the rest of
you, but have heard from people
away from here that sure don't
get their Faith paper regularly
and the same thing for us here
close by.  We don't get ours here
until Friday and this week due to
the holiday was on Saturday. A
lot of the happenings, etc. are
gone by because of late delivery.
Guess it might be the fact that
our postal service has regressed
in the last few years, but when
talking to people away from here
that still look forward to the Faith
Paper, say they are disappointed
with the delivery.
The South Dakota National
Guard Museum, located at 301
East Dakota in Pierre, will be
hosting the Department of De-
fense 60th Anniversary Korean
War Commem- oration exhibit.
The exhibit will be on display
at the Museum from 9 a.m. – 4
p.m. on Friday, July 26, and from
9 a.m. to noon on Saturday, July
Over the past three years, Bob
Hill, South Dakota’s Ambassador
to the Department of Defense
60th Anniversary of the Korean
War Commemoration Committee,
has displayed the exhibit in the
communities of Brookings,
Mitchell, Pierre, Rapid City,
Sioux Falls, Sisseton and Water-
town. Hill has worked endlessly
to locate and recognize South
Dakota’s Korean War Veterans.
In addition to the exhibit,
there will also be a wreath laying
ceremony at the Korean War Me-
morial at the Capitol Lake in
Pierre on Saturday, July 27, at 11
a.m. Immediately following the
ceremony, a lunch will be served
at the Post 8 American Legion
cabin in Pierre, followed by the
presentation of Korean War Com-
memoration certificates.
The Department of Defense
Anniversary of the Korean War
commemoration period began in
2010 and concludes in 2013, coin-
ciding with the 60th Anniversary
of the Korean War, (1950-1953).
Fireworks ... at Durkee Lake on the Fourth of July. The City had
a nice display this year with many onlookers enjoying the night.

Lacey tells me when she reads
my news she skips this first part
about the weather but I put it in
for those of you who live far away.
So far I’ve not seen Faith, South
Dakota weather mentioned on
Good Morning with Al so I’ll bore
Lacey. We’re in need of rain right
now, crops and hay are drying up
and we never did get much run
off. Today, Monday, has a chance
of rain but only sprinkles so far.
Sympathy goes out to the fam-
ilies of Walt Grueb and Janice
Hansen. Our community is sure
to miss both of these folks as they
were well known in the area. Jan-
ice worked at Hill Top V Store for
many years and always had a
smile and something kind to say.
She was one of those gals you
looked forward to seeing. Walt
was an area character and “fix-
ture” in the community. I think
I’ll always picture Walt in bib
overalls, ambling along. He had
time to visit and something to
say. They don’t make a lot like ole
Harold and I have been looking
at modular homes this past week
as we want to put a home on my
lot in Faith. My head is swim-
ming from all the floor plans
we’ve seen and all the fancies
they think homes need now days.
As Harold says most master bath-
rooms are so big you could live in
them. One had a fireplace and
TV. Far cry from the days of the
outhouse we used when I was a
kid at Timber Lake and Green
Grass. Counter tops come in all
types no linoleum like my mom
cooked on for 60 years. I watch all
these home shows and know I’m
supposed to go in and complain
about the colors and how we’ll
have to change the cabinets or the
floor but I didn’t. I just wandered
along and drooled. All this also
made me think of all the old, odd
duck bachelors who came to this
area and homesteaded. Some of
the names from the Marcus area
were Fred Schutey who lives
southwest of Wonderchecks or
Earl Waterland’s, Oliver Ginter,
west of Marcus, Harry and Ed
Norton, east of Marcus, Green-
bury Murphy, west of Jim Collins,
? Stark, north of Plainview, and ?
Bonfield just north of our place.
Many of these men lived in
dugouts or actual holes in the
ground. Oliver Ginter lived neigh-
bor to my folks when sister,
Adele, was tiny. He was dirty and
smelled bad and she loved him
much to her mother’s dismay!
These guys would have thought
they were in a palace in these
modular homes. Every area had
some of these unmarried, bache-
lors who were here, left their
mark and are gone. Hopefuly
someone in your area has written
down the names, any info on
them and marked where they
lived. I always nag about preserv-
ing our history and these fellows
were a big part of it!

We expect the men and wome-
who make up our Armed Forces
to be able to respond at a mo-
ment’s notice to protect our na-
tion around the world. In return
for their service, they should ex-
pect their government to be able
to efficiently process their earned
benefits claims when they return
home. Sadly, this hasn’t been the
As of June 22, 2013, the De-
partment of Veterans Affairs had
524,711 claims that have been
pending for more than 125 days.
While this figure represents an
improvement from recent
months, the backlog remains em-
barrassingly high. After fighting
for our country, our veterans
shouldn’t have to wait months on
end for the benefits they have
earned and deserve.
Recently, I worked with Senate
Appropriations Committee Chair-
woman Barbara Mikulski to con-
vene a roundtable to address this
important issue. This meeting
brought together the leadership
from the Department of Veterans
Affairs, Department of Defense,
Internal Revenue Service, and
the Social Security Administra-
tion. The backlog isn’t just a fail-
ure by the VA. All of these
agencies need to provide informa-
tion to the VA for a veteran’s
claim to be processed.  Solving the
backlog will require these agen-
cies to coordinate their efforts and
direct every resource available to
fix this problem, including man-
power, technology, and training.
At the roundtable, Defense
Secretary Chuck Hagel and VA
Secretary Eric Shinseki agreed to
continue meeting every 60 days to
discuss efforts to end the backlog,
and all agencies agreed to provide
a coordinated progress report to
the Appropriations Committee
every two months. It will take a
real commitment to working to-
gether to tackle this problem, and
I can assure you that we will hold
their feet to the fire. 
As Chairman of the VA Appro-
priations Subcommittee, I have
included in the Fiscal Year 2014
appropriations bill a ten-point ac-
tion plan to address the claims
backlog. This involves a combina-
tion of targeted investment, over-
sight, and accountability. The bill
provides funding for upgrades to
computer hardware and targeted
overtime for claims processors.
While we must work expedi-
tiously to end the backlog, we
cannot sacrifice accuracy in the
process. My bill increases train-
ing of claims processors to ensure
quality and accuracy and pro-
vides Quality Review Teams to
conduct spot audits at VA Re-
gional Offices. Additionally, I’ve
provided the Board of Veterans
Appeals with funding to hire ad-
ditional personnel to expedite the
processing of appeals. 
The backlog wasn’t created
overnight and will take time to
eliminate. Secretary Shinseki has
committed to ending the backlog
by 2015.  While I appreciate this
commitment, I understand that
for veterans who have already
been waiting for months, 2015
seems like a long way off.  We
must approach this issue with a
sense of urgency. All veterans
should be able to have their
claims processed correctly and in
a timely manner. The Senate is
responding to the needs of our
veterans. I will continue working
with agency officials and my col-
leagues on both sides of the aisle
to make this a reality. 
We were in the 80s and 90s
most of last week. We had a little
rain shower Sunday morning, but
very little. Skies were overcast
most of the day this past Monday
and finally, about 10:30, the wind
hit and it wasn’t long before the
rain, thunder and lightning
started. According to the official
rain guage at the airport we had
.48”, talk in town was up to 1”.
Condolences to the family of
Janice Hansen. Janice passed
away at home on the 4th of July
after a battle with cancer. They
are having a private family serv-
ice as she wished. Janice was one
of those ladies you enjoyed being
around, a very happy, bubbly per-
son. She will be missed by many.
There were a lot of watchers at
the fireworks display at Durkee
Lake on the 4th. We didn’t get to
have fireworks last year due to
the drought so it was nice to have
them this year. Thanks to the
City for putting on this yearly
Craig and Becky Ness recently

Craig and Becky stopped at
Spearfish and visited Norvan and
Carol Ness.
Dave and Kathy Schuchhardt
hosted the Schuchhardt family
reunion at their home over the

iting took place!
Melanie Collins, Sioux Falls,
spent the 4th of July weekend
with her parents, Gordie and

Dave and Eldora Fischbach
had most of their kids at their
house in Rapid City over the 4th
of July weekend. Steve, Lisa and
Clark from Idaho, Nathan, Anita
and kids from Watertown, along
with Laurie and Samantha from
Ohio. They got in some good vis-
iting. Laurie and Samantha will
be visiting another week, the oth-
ers left on Sunday.
Paul and I went to Rapid City
Friday afternoon and met
Melissa, Jeremy, Hunter, Brooke,
Nick and his girlfriend Reneé.
They just returned from their trip
to Minnesota that afternoon.
They had a great time. We were
dogsitting Bella so had to take
her back so she could go home.
We all went to the car races that
night, but unfortunately, they
were rained out! Dave, Steve,
Lisa and Clark, and Nathan and
Anita Fischbach all came to
watch Eric race, too. The one time
they could come and no races! So
We noticed on the way down
and back that there is a lot of hay
in the fields, some baled and some
not. It’s nice to see. I don’t know
as there’ll be a second cutting but
at least they got a good first cut-
ting. I also noticed the cattle were
really bunching up, trying to keep
those pesky flies away!

Gardening by the Clock?
Are you one of those that have
an inner clock that wakes you up
at 6:00 AM no matter what day it
is? Well, all plants, flowers or veg-
etables, grown indoors or out-
doors have that internal clock
that regulates their life cycle
processes. It is sensitivity to the
waxing and waning of daylight as
the year progresses. This sensitiv-
ity is known as photoperiodism
which determines when they
fruit, when they bolt, or when
they produce storage organs
(think potatoes).
Takato Imaizumi, University
of Washington biologist, is uncov-
ering the mechanisms of the sea-
sonal calendar in plants. Almost
all living creatures, gardeners in-
cluded, possess a powerful clock,
known as the circadian clock,
which controls many of life’s
processes.  Studies have shown
that plants and animals don’t
have to actually experience day
and night to have regular
wake/sleep (animals) or stiff
leaf/relaxed leaf (plants) cycles,
prove that this clock is innate.
Imaizumi explains that “The cir-
cadian clock is not constantly sen-
sitive to light. It has a light
sensitive window at the end of the
day that acts as a gating mecha-
nism. This process is what deter-
mines of a plant is a long-day or a
short-day plant. Some plants are
considered day-neutral which are
not affected by photoperiodism
but by temperatures or maturity.
The long-day and short-day de-
termination depends on latitude.
Day length at the equator is a
constant 12 hours in all seasons
while at 50 degrees latitude the
day can swing from about 8 hours
in January to 16 hours in June.
The latitude of Bison is 45.520N
which has a minimum of eight
hours and 42 minutes of daylight
in mid-December to a maximum
of 15 hours and 41 minutes of
daylight in mid-June. 
Onions are a crop whose lati-
tude of origin is important.  You
will notice in seed catalogs that
onions are listed as long or short
day varieties.  A variety that re-
quires 14 hours of daylight would
be appropriate for South Dakota
but not for Florida.
The poor gardener, hoping for
perfection in a wide range of
crops, has a lot to keep track of all
the variables:  different light re-
quirements for different vegeta-
bles and even the different
varieties of the same vegetable;
radical difference in day length at
different latitudes; and the fact
that seasonal responses in plants
are not all light-determined alone
but can be adjusted by weather
related factors such as tempera-
ture and moisture.
And you thought gardening
was a simple thing…
My green thumb came only as
a result of the mistakes I made
while learning to see things from
the plant's point of view. ~H. Fred

Food poisoning can spoil sum-
mer picnics and cookouts but sim-
ple precautions can prevent it,
says a state health official. 
“Bacteria in food multiply
faster whenever temperatures
rise above 40⁰F,” said Bill Chal-
craft, health protection adminis-
trator for the Department of
Health. “That’s why handling and
storing food safely is so important
during hot weather.”  
In 2012, South Dakota re-
ported 493 cases of the food-borne
illnesses E. coli, Salmonella, and
Campylobacter. To date in 2013,
157 cases of such illnesses have
been reported. Food-borne ill-
nesses often go unreported so the
actual number of cases is likely
Mild or severe diarrhea, fever,
vomiting and abdominal pain are
common symptoms of food-borne
illness. Most people will recover
at home without medication but
some people may need fluids to
prevent dehydration.
Chalcraft recommended the
following steps when cooking out-
•Start with hand-washing.
Use moist disposable towelettes if
soap and water aren’t available.
•Keep raw foods separate
from cooked foods. If a plate
held raw meat, don’t use it again
without first washing it in hot,
soapy water.
•Marinate foods in the re-
frigerator, not on the counter or
outdoors, and don't reuse mari-
nade. For use as a sauce, set some
aside before adding food.
•Use a food thermometer to
make sure food is cooked
thoroughly. Cook hamburgers
to 160ºF and chicken to at least
•Keep hot food hot (140ºF or
above) and cold food cold (40ºF
or below).
•Refrigerate or freeze left-
over food promptly. Don't let per-
ishable foods sit out longer than
two hours; no more than one hour
if temperatures are above 90ºF.

A nice rain Sunday gave every-
one here a break from the hay-
field. I dumped .84 hundredths
out of the rain gauge, and for once
I haven’t heard of anyone getting
more moisture than we did! The
rain was spotty, Jim Bingaman
said he didn’t get any at his place
southeast of us and only had a lit-
tle shower west of his buildings.
Sunday afternoon, Iver Heier was
haying along the highway just
west of Prairie City, so they didn’t
get much there either.
My father’s cousin, Lester
Blomberg, took some of us down
to the Slim Buttes to revisit some
old family homesteads. Lester’s
daughter Bonnie and Rick Root
recently came from California
and bought a house north of
Whitewood. Lester’s son, Wade
and Janet Blomberg, were visit-
ing from Trabuco, California, so
we asked Lester and Arlene to
show us where our ancestors used
to live.
Rick had never been to JB
Rock and Deb Wammen gave us
permission to follow the trail to
the site where the Calvary was
stationed during the Indian scare
back in 1890. We found the
crossed sword insignia and sol-
diers’ names that were carved
into the rock. We also found the
names of several old neighbors
that grew up around here. Don
Baker and Leah (Vroman)
Phillips went to school with my
father at the old Rock Ranch
School that my great grandfather
Carl Hallan built just north of
Blair Hamilton’s ranch and their
names are carved in the stone not
far from where Lester and his
mother, Bessie (Hallan) Blomberg
carved their names many years
From JB Rock we traveled east
to Lynn and Connie Weishaar’s
pasture. Lynn and Harlan Sieler
were working near the gate into
the pasture so we were able to
talk with them. Harlan knew
where the sites were that we were
looking for. He helped us find the
homestead of Hans Dvergsten, a
cousin of our great grandmother,
Caroline (Kjos) Hallan, and from
there Harlan guided us to where
the sod house of our great grand-
parents, Carl and Caroline Hal-
lan once stood.
We found the smokehouse
Grandpa Carl built into a nearby
hillside and the bulb-shaped rock
cistern that he hauled water to
from a nearby live creek. An old
stove was covering the cistern
and when Wade and I dragged it
off to examine Grandpa’s handi-
work, we discovered a live porcu-
pine had settled underneath it.
Since none of us had a gun, we
put the stove back over the irri-
tated pin cushion and left it
Both my grandfather Clem
White and my grandmother
Manda (Hallan) White home-
steaded just east of Manda’s par-
ents’ house around Flat Top
Butte, where my father, Bryce
White, and his sisters, Claire
John and Mary Haggart were
born. Their homesteads are in
Hotchkiss’s pasture, but we ran
out of time so we didn’t venture
out that far. I want to thank our
wonderful neighbors for letting us
roam through their pastures in
search of our history. We live in
the greatest place on earth!
The men spent Independence
Day in the hayfield while Casey’s
kids went to Gardner Lake and I
drove to Belle Fourche for the pa-
rade. Walt Kolb hauled me
through the parade in his classic
1923 Oldsmobile while it rained
on our parade! We were near the
beginning of the parade so Walt
parked under the canopy over the
pumps at a gas station to watch
the rest of the parade in relative
After the parade I drove to
Whitewood for lunch with Rick
and Bonnie Root at their new
house. Lester and Arlene were
there, along with Wade and Janet
Blomberg and Koreen and Chuck
Anderson.  Most of the Blombergs
went to the Roundup rodeo that
evening, but since it hadn’t rained
at home I skipped the rodeo and
headed back to the ranch to see
how the haying was progressing.
Louise Jenson had a message
on my answering machine when I
got home with the sad news that
our good friend, Mary Lou (Reitz)
Mollman had passed away the
night before. Mary Lou and her
family were at Bowman Haley
Dam to watch the fireworks
Wednesday evening when she
suffered an apparent heart at-
tack. Her funeral will be Tuesday
in Bowman with burial to follow
in the Vessey Cemetery.  Mary
Lou was a wonderful, caring
woman and she will be sorely
Sen. Maher was also in the
Belle Fourche parade and told us
that his grandpa Maher died
June 30th in Lemmon. Services
for Joseph "Mickey" Maher, age
85, were held Saturday, in Mor-
ristown. Mickey is survived by his
Donna of 62 years, 12 children, 42
grandchildren; 33 great-grand-
Dustin DeFord, 24, from
Ekalaka, and 18 other firefighters
died June 30th fighting fire on
the Yarnell fire near Prescott,
AZ.  Funeral services for Dustin
will be Saturday at the Carter
County High School in Ekalaka
with burial in the Beaverlodge
Cemetery.  This was the biggest
loss of firemen since the 9/11 at-
tack on the World Trade Center.
Our hearts go out to these fami-
Equipment breakdowns con-
tinue and I ran to Dickinson Sat-
urday for swather parts. I didn’t
waste any time because I didn’t
want to be late for the hog roast
and party at Reva, celebrating
the 30th anniversary of Joe and
Karen Wilkinson running the
Reva store, post office, gas sta-
tion, bar and feed store – other-
wise known as the Reva Mall.
Pete Tenold helped our son Guy
build the big gas grill, Wayne Lee
furnished a huge pig to roast, and
the community helped get the
supper ready as we gathered at
the Reva Hall to celebrate this
vital center of our community.
Congratulations Joe and Karen –
good job!!

Like many South Dakotans, I
enjoy spending the summer
evenings outside and at the ball
fields on the weekends. Although
I’m away from family while I’m in
D.C., I do try to run outside to get
a breath of fresh air or find an op-
portunity to spend some time out-
doors. I recently had the
opportunity to play in the Con-
gressional Women’s Softball
Game, an annual event where fe-
male lawmakers team up and
play female members of the
media in a softball game for char-
This wasn’t a task we took
lightly. Starting months ago, we
began practices at 7AM Tuesday
and Thursday mornings to work
on our fundamentals, such as hit-
ting, grounding, throwing and
pitching. It was also a great op-
portunity for all of us to get to
know one another and to learn
how to work together as a team.
When we took the field on
game day, more than 1,000 people
were in attendance. All proceeds
of the ticket sales went to benefit
the Young Survival Coalition
(YSC), a global organization ded-
icated to critical issues unique to
young women who are diagnosed
with breast cancer. In particular,
the YSC offers resources, connec-
tions and outreach to young
women with breast cancer.
While we may not agree on
every policy considered in Con-
gress, both Democratic and Re-
publican women came together
and united for an incredible
cause. We can even agree with
the media on this one! According
to the American Cancer Society,
about 12 percent of women in the
United States will develop inva-
sive breast cancer during their
lifetime. Preceded by only lung
cancer, breast cancer is the sec-
ond leading cause of cancer death
in women.
We ended up losing the game
11-8, but at the end of the night it
didn’t matter who came out victo-
rious, because roughly $125,000
was raised for the Young Survival
Coalition and a new coalition of
females from both the House and
Senate was created. I hope you’ll

South Dakotans are turning to
social media this summer to en-
courage safe driving habits. Hun-
dreds have used the popular
smart phone application Insta-
gram to post pictures showing
why they wear their seat belts.
It’s part of a public service cam-
paign from the South Dakota Of-
fice of Highway Safety designed
to increase seat belt usage and
decrease the number of unre-
strained motorists injured and
killed in vehicle accidents.
“We’re inviting people to share
photos that show why they buckle
up. There are pictures of friends,
families, siblings, children, par-
ents, even pets,” said Lee Axdahl,
director of the Office of Highway
Safety. “Each one is an opportu-
nity to connect with motorists and
encourage change without lectur-
ing. It is a very effective commu-
nication tool.”
The Office of Highway Safety
has joined forces with Sanford
Health and Rapid City Regional
Health to sponsor prizes for the
contest. Every time someone
shares a photo on Instagram with
the hashtag #WhyIBuckle, that
person is entered. Each week a
$25 iTunes gift card is awarded.
The grand prize is an iPad Mini.

Young people from across the
state of South Dakota partici-
pated in the South Dakota Farm-
ers Union’s annual state camp
June 2-7, 2013, at Storm Moun-
tain Center near Rapid City.
Nearly 100 youth ages 14-19
spent the week setting up their
own cooperative businesses, tour-
ing the Black Hills, listening to
speakers and learning leadership
and various life skills.
“This year’s state camp was an
extraordinary time of learning as
these young people participated
in cooperative business training
and learned valuable leadership
skills that they will take with
them for the rest of their lives,”
said State Education Director
Bonnie Geyer. The week featured
many activities like hiking, sports
and bonfires. There was also a
tour day where youth went on
tours in the Rapid City area.
Speakers at this year’s state
camp included Sioux Falls Storm
head coach and Roosevelt High
School teacher Kurtiss Riggs who
spoke about leadership; Elaine
Doll, a marathon runner in her
70s, who spoke to the young peo-
ple about personal motivation in
her discussion called “Life is a
marathon, so double tie your
shoes!” Troopers from the South
Dakota Highway Patrol spoke to
the campers about traffic safety,
the dangers of texting and driving
and underage drinking. Rebecca
Caselli-Smith with Lutheran So-
cial Services spoke to campers
about bullying and self-esteem.
Throughout the week, young
people run their own coopera-
tives. There’s the co-op store,
newspaper, insurance company,
and even a co-op coffee shop.
Campers put real money into the
credit union at the start of camp
to buy things from the co-op store
and they get a checkbook.  “These
are real life scenarios that they’re
living out during the week of
camp,” Geyer said. “The kids that
go to State Camp will be better
prepared when they go to college
and have to balance their bank

Social media contest encourages
South Dakota teens to buckle up
They are all on boards of directors
of their various cooperatives, take
out loans, pay bills, and run a real
business. On the last evening of
camp, campers select the next
year’s Junior Advisory Council
(JAC), a group of six campers who
have at least finished their junior
year of high school. This year’s
JAC members are Tucker Greene
of Plankinton; Dayton Trujillo of
De Smet; Jackie Dethlefsen of
Stickney; Chris Nemec of Ho-
labird; Brooke Enright of Union
Center; and Aidan Beck of Huron.
The six JAC members will help
plan and facilitate the 2014 State
Camp as well as help South
Dakota Farmers Union through-
out the year at different events
including Farmers Union Day at
the South Dakota State Fair.

Agency News
South Dakota Farmers Union
has joined a large coalition of or-
ganizations and companies from
across the country to push for
passage of a long-term farm bill
after the U.S. House recently
failed to pass the legislation.
Farmers Union joined a total of
532 agriculture, conservation,
rural development, finance,
forestry, energy and crop insur-
ance companies and organiza-
tions in sending a letter today to
Speaker of the House John
Boehner calling for the passage of
a five-year farm bill before the
current bill expires Sept. 30.
“South Dakota’s farmers and
ranchers need the business cer-
tainty that the farm bill pro-
vides,” said South Dakota
Farmers Union President Doug
Sombke. “From a proper safety
net for agricultural producers to
nutrition, rural development, con-
servation and energy, the farm
bill covers the most vital issues
for producers and rural communi-
ties in South Dakota. It’s such an
important piece of legislation for
the future of rural America, and
we’ve joined with hundreds of
other organizations and individu-
als to urge Speaker Boehner and
other members of the House to
get the bill passed.”
The letter strongly urges
Speaker Boehner to “bring the
farm bill back to the floor as soon
as possible.” It goes on to say that
this important legislation “sup-
ports our nation’s farmers, ranch-
ers, forest owners, food security,
natural resources and wildlife
habitats, rural communities, and
the 16 million Americans whose
jobs directly depend on the agri-
culture industry.”
The U.S. Senate passed its ver-
sion of a farm bill in 2012 and
again in 2013. The House Agricul-
ture Committee also passed farm
bills in 2012 and 2013, but the
2012 farm bill was never brought
to the House floor for a vote and
was allowed to expire before an
extension agreement was
reached, prolonging the 2008
farm bill until Sept. 30, 2013. The
U.S. House floor vote on June 20,
2013, failed with 195 voting yes
and 234 voting no. The future of
the farm bill remains uncertain.
“Historically the farm bill has
garnered bipartisan support, and
it’s vital at this critical time as
we’re nearing the expiration of
the 2008 farm bill extension in
September that our lawmakers in
Washington put aside political
bickering, work together and
come together to do what’s right
for rural America,” Sombke said.

When Leafy Spurge's yellow
flowers begin to bloom, landown-
ers can evaluate the effectiveness
of their control program, says
Paul Johnson, SDSU Extension
Agronomy Field Specialist.
"If you have been doing a good
job at control in the past, it may
be a little slower and, if you have
been doing a really good job, there
may even be fewer plants out
there than last year," Johnson
He adds that the only way to
get spurge under control is to be
on it every year and get the root
reserves depleted so the plants
will start to die.
"A cold winter helps to take out
the spurge when the root reserves
have been depleted," Johnson
said. "As soon as the yellow flow-
ers are out it is time to start
Johnson says the control win-
dow is only about one month be-
fore there will be viable seed in
the plant.
"If you also have thistles in
with the spurge you may want to
wait a little until thistles are at
bud to make sure you get good
coverage and control on both of
the weeds," he said.
But again, Johnson says be
careful not to wait too long.
"Waiting too long only allows
the root reserves to build back up
in the plant, and then you will not
make any progress on getting rid
of the plants. Instead, they will
come back stronger than ever," he
New Control Tools Avail-
Based on SDSU test plots in
Moody County a new compound
called Perspective® looks like it
should be as good as Tordon® in
controlling Leafy Spurge, but
Johnson says this compound has
fewer use-restrictions; and it is
more environmentally friendly.
"It should be able to be used in
more areas that have a shallow
ground water problem," he said.
"This is the first new product that
has effect on thistles and spurge
that has been developed in the
last 40 years."
At present, Perspective is not
labeled on any areas that are
cropped or hayed, Johnson says
until more labeling is done, it will
be limited on where it can be
used. Also some grass injury will
need to be tolerated with its use.
"Usually the grass will recover
the next year," he said. "And, I al-
ways want readers to know that
use of the product's names does
not imply endorsement. Informa-
tion is based on SDSU research
and observations."
Before use, landowners need to
verify information on current
product labels prior to applica-

The third annual South Dakota
Timed Event Championship will
be held Saturday and Sunday,
August 31 and September 1, in
Huron at the South Dakota State
“We’ve been nothing but im-
pressed by the quality of competi-
tion and level of fan support,” said
Jason Edleman with the event.
“This is truly the area’s finest
youth rodeo talent and they de-
serve recognition.”
The area’s elite will compete in
six timed events, including tie-
down roping, barrel racing, team
roping, goat tying, breakaway
roping and steer wrestling. Any
rodeo youth from across the coun-
try, ages 14 through 18 are eligi-
ble to compete for the title, but
entries are limited.
A horse trailer and seven event
saddles will be awarded to the
best performers as they compete
for the youth timed event title.
The event was started in 2011
by Edleman and Steven Birkholtz
and continues to grow. It contin-
ues to bring in over 100 contest-
ants, their families and fans to
the State Fair, making it one of
the premier events for fair specta-
“This really is the only youth
rodeo event at the State Fair, let
alone in the Midwest, and it
draws a huge crowd,” said Birk-
holtz. “Contestants and fans
travel from across the state and
nation to be at the South Dakota
Timed Event Championship.”
Last year’s champion, Casey
Packer, Sturgis, took home a 2012
Featherlite four-horse trailer and
scholarship, along with a cham-
pion team roping saddle. He part-
nered with his brother, Cody, to
capture the title. Hallie Fulton,
Miller, came in second, taking
home the barrel racing honors.
Others who took home titles in-
clude Jason Hapney, Harrold, in
steer wrestling; Kristi Steffes,
Vale, in breakaway roping; Seth
Andersen, Hurley, in calf roping;
and Chesney Nagel, Springfield,
in goat tying.
The 2013 SDTEC is en route to
exceed expectations and promote
the area’s finest youth rodeo tal-
ent. For more information, entry

dust hangs in the air. Mayor Haines said
that where they haul gravel they have to
slow down to 20 miles an hour when get-
ting close to an individual’s place and
until they are passed it. Discussion was
held in regards to where to start and how
far and how much gravel it would take.
This would be like a test site. Riley made

prove the purchase of crushed gravel

Farm families reflect
changing family structure
The social structure of the
American family is changing and
farm families are in step with
these changes. The Pew Research
Center released two reports re-
cently (May 29 and June 11,
2013) that document significant
behavioral and demographic
shifts in families over the past 50
In 1960, 3.5 percent of married
mothers in the U.S. were the pri-
mary wage earners in their fami-
lies. That percentage rose to 15
percent in 2011. Single mothers
who were the sole providers for
their families rose from 7.3 per-
cent to 25.3 percent during that
same timeframe.
Mothers are now the sole or
primary provider in more than 40
percent of U.S. families. Farm
families are changing as well,
with more than a million female
farmers who are the primary
(14%) or secondary (16%) farm
operators, according to an April
29, 2013 USDA report.
Women are entering agricul-
ture at a faster rate than men; 19
percent more women entered
farming in 2002 to 2007, com-
pared to 7 percent more farmers
overall, says the 2007 Census of
Agriculture. But their farms are
smaller and only 5 percent of fe-
male-operated farms have annual
gross sales of $100,000 or more.
Most rely on off-farm jobs that
supplement their agricultural en-
The most recent Census of
Agriculture, which farmers com-
pleted earlier this year for the
2012 crop year, will likely indi-
cate even more involvement of
women in agriculture. Females
have increasingly gravitated to-
ward agricultural training in high
school and college and comprise
44 percent of the current National
FFA Organization membership.
Total family income is higher
when women are the primary
wage earners in two-parent fami-
lies, than when men are the pri-
mary providers, according to the
recent Pew reports. Wives are be-
coming better educated but still
lag behind their husbands over-
all, for only 23 percent of families
has a mother who is more edu-
cated than her husband.
Women are replacing men in
some of the better-paying agricul-
ture-related careers that require
advanced education, such as vet-
erinary medicine, where the 2010
nationwide class of graduates was
77 percent female. Women are in-
creasing rapidly in agronomy,
marketing and in the USDA.
As might be expected, the roles
of fathers in families are chang-
ing as women enter the U.S.
workforce. In 1965 fathers spent
2.5 hours per week with their
children, but in 2011 fathers
spent 7.3 hours weekly with their
children, according to the Pew Re-
search Center.
Fathers also spend more time
these days helping with house-
work (9.8 hours per week in 2011)
whereas in 1965 fathers spent
about half that amount of time
helping with housework. Fathers
now are the stay-at-home parent
in nearly 190,000 households, ac-
cording to the 2010 U.S. Census.
A recent study by University of
Missouri researcher, Adam Galo-
van, involving 160 married par-
ents with children, indicated that
couples were happiest when the
fathers helped with household
chores and child care than when
the fathers participated little in
these activities. Research shows
that children of couples who
shared parental duties were bet-
ter adjusted than children of cou-
ples who did not share parental
Fathers don’t get to spend as
much time with their newborn or
newly adopted children as the
mothers. In the U.S., paternity
leave averages less than a week,
while maternity leave at the same
companies averages six to twelve
Most European countries offer
longer maternal and paternal
leave for newborn care and child
adoption. In many European
countries new mothers are guar-
anteed job security for six months
to three years, while the fathers
have several weeks’ paternity
Many U.S. farm and ranch
couples had to share roles out of
necessity during the Farm Crisis
of the 1980s, while the general
U.S. trend toward sharing roles
occurred gradually over a longer
time. Several studies that exam-
ined farm and ranch families dur-
ing the Farm Crisis (e.g., Carson,
Araquistain, Ide, Quoss et. al,
1994; Rettig, Danes & Bauer,
1991; Lobao & Meyer, 1995) de-
termined the families who coped
best were those who shared their
strengths in running the agricul-
tural operation and the house-
Stressed farm people who were
assisted emotionally and finan-
cially by their partners during
this difficult time had less need
for professional behavioral health
services. Adversity has always
been a stimulus for farm families
to adapt.
The current agricultural popu-
lation are the survivors of previ-
ous episodes of stress that sorted
out those who were less success-
ful. Survivors relied on their ge-
netic predispositions to adjust to
change and knowledge acquired
from their predecessors in agri-
culture to somehow carry on.
We know agricultural produc-
ers have strong inclinations to do
what it takes to help humans en-
dure, for farm and ranch people
are endowed with powerful drives
to care for the families, communi-
ties and humans in general. A
successful aging farmer once told
me he and his wife “hang in there
together” whenever a difficult fi-
nancial era occurs.
This couple is wealthy and
healthy today.
