Deadwood History will partici-
pate in displaying the South
Dakota Fallen Heroes Banners
Traveling Memorial at the Days
of ’76 Museum during the Days of
’76 Celebration and Rodeo July 23
– 28, 2013. 
During the conflicts of Opera-
tion Iraqi and Enduring Freedom,
and Operation New Dawn, South
Dakota has lost 35 servicemen
and women.  The South Dakota
Fallen Heroes Banners were cre-
ated to memorialize the lives of
these South Dakota Heroes. The
public is invited to visit, and give
a moment of pause to recognize
these 35 names. With each name
comes a face, a history, a once
lived life to be treasured for all
time.
Deadwood History’s Days of ’76
Museum, Adams Museum and
Historic Adams House are also
participating in the Blue Star
Museum program.  The free ad-
mission program is available to
active-duty military and their im-
mediate family members (mili-
tary ID holder and five immediate
family members), which includes
active duty Reserve and active
duty National Guard.
The Days of ’76 Museum,
Adams Museum and Historic
Adams House are open 9:00 a.m.
to 5:00 p.m., daily. Guided tours
of the Adams House are offered
every half hour, with the last tour
of the day at 4:00 p.m.
South Dakota Lottery officials
are urging players to not be taken
in by a scam that promises them
winnings from a second chance
Mega Millions drawing.
The Lottery has been notified
by more than a dozen players, all
lotto or scratch ticket winners,
who have received phone calls
from an individual claiming to be
with the South Dakota Lottery
who advised them that their
prizes made them eligible for a
second chance Mega Millions
drawing. The caller then went on
to tell the player that they had
won a $5 million second prize in
the drawing and that representa-
tives from the South Dakota Lot-
tery would be delivering that
prize in person. Lottery Director
Norm Lingle cautions the public
not to be fooled if they are con-
tacted.
"The Lottery never enters
someone into a drawing, promo-
tion for an added bonus or prize,
or for any other reason without
that person's knowledge," Lingle
said. "If you are contacted by the
scammer, either by phone or some
other method such as e-mail, we
urge you to contact local law en-
forcement and the Consumer Pro-
tection unit of the South Dakota
Attorney General’s office at 1-
800-300-1986."
Lingle says it's also a good idea
to check with his agency to see if
such  calls or e-mails  are legiti-
mate before taking any action re-
quested by the scammer. The
Lottery maintains three valida-
tion centers across the state in
Pierre (605-773-5770), Rapid City
(605-394-5106) and Sioux Falls
(605-367-5840).
In at least one reported case,
the scammer requested the victim
purchase a Green Dot Card to re-
ceive their winnings. Lingle also
advises those contacted to not
provide any personal information,
including credit card and bank ac-
count numbers, if requested by
the caller. 
Lottery prizes of $101 or more
must be claimed at a Lottery of-
fice using an official prize claim
form. For more information on

The Faith City Council had
two special guests at their July
16th meeting. Paul Thares,
SDSU Community Development
Field Specialist and Nick Jack-
son, SD Rural Water Association.
Thares explained that their
new website iGrow is their latest
way of communicating informa-
tion to the public, and told of the
programs they have to offer to or-
ganizations, governments, as well
as individuals. He can help with
grant writing and developing
business plans. The Extension
has many resources. He told
Council he is willing to come here
and share information on any
program that might be of use to
them.
Jackson brought his well
trailer and checked out a couple
areas that were thought to have
leaks, one by the community cen-
ter and one further north of town.
There was no leak found at the
community center, but there was
one at the other site, averaging
about 720 gallons a day. He vis-
ited with the landowner about the
situation.
Discussion was held on an ear-
lier motion regarding the fee for
swimming lessons. A new motion
was made and approved to have
the fee given to Tori Afdahl,
Water Safety Instructor, for giv-
ing the lessons, rather than pay-
ing her the hourly wage,
retroactive to the beginning of the
lessons.
Donn Dupper explained that
he would like to see the city in-
stall liners in their sewer lines as
some of them are crumbling. Sev-
eral communities are having this
problem and are going with lin-
ers. Debbie thought there might
be grants available to help with
the cost. Council told her to con-
tact the lady about coming and
helping with the grant applica-
tion.
Atty. Bogue said he didn’t have
all the information but has verifi-
cation that the oil lease of Nakota
Energy was purchased by another
company. He feels comfortable
with extending the lease for an
additional two years with the new
company. They would pay a lump
sum up front and then an addi-
tional $2 per acre. Council ap-
proved the lease transfer with the
new company for two more years,
which would extend it into 2016.
Atty. Bogue gave members
copies of the job descriptions to
review and make any additions,
corrections to. He made some
changes in some departments,
most of the changes were for the
janitor as the new building wasn’t
here the last time this was done.
Council tabled this until the sec-
ond meeting in August.
The next item on the agenda
was the contract with Golden
West for fiber provision and
maintenance support. Bogue was-
n’t comfortable with the contract
as he felt is was too open-ended,
there was no specific fee stated
and he doesn’t like those types of
contracts. With costs changing
constantly he could understand
that portion and told Council if
they are comfortable with it they
could accept it, which they did.
Council discussed Ordinance
#306 regarding future develop-
ment. Bogue thought they were
worrying about something that
isn’t going to happen (man camps
from the oil development).
Berndt expressed her feelings
that the city doesn’t need this and
made the motion to not proceed
with the ordinance. Inghram
made a second to the motion and
Council was in agreement.
Council approved Atty. Bogue
sending letters to two homeown-
ers with nuisance properties.
Council retired into executive
session at 8:15 to 8:55 for possible
litigation.
The City received a notice re-
garding information for insurance
of Durkee Lake. The lake is
owned by GFP, but the City owns
the land around it. The insurance
company wants a response from
them regarding several items
that need attention, as trees, the
spillway, fence, etc.
Resolution #07-16-13-01 for
the transfer of funds was ap-
proved.

Irwin Richardson, age 99, of
Marcus, SD, passed away on
Tuesday, July 9, 2013, at West-
hills Village in Rapid City, SD.
Irwin Richardson was born Au-
gust 28, 1913, at Rapid City, SD,
to Dick and Grace Richardson.
He spent his early years on his
parent's ranch near Howes, SD.
He started riding with his dad be-
fore school age, and from the time
he was 11 years old until he grad-
uated from high school, he spent
most of his life on a horse in a cow
camp on the Cheyenne Indian
Reservation herding cattle.  He
graduated from Faith High
School and later attended college
at the School of Mines in Rapid
City.
On August 15, 1934, he mar-
ried Inga Stalheim. In the early
years, Irwin and Inga and two
daughters, Lila and Lola, lived in
a small log house built by French
fur traders in 1878, on Red Owl
Creek near Marcus. Later, they
purchased an adjoining ranch
where they had a daughter,
Jessie, and a son, Pete. Irwin and
Inga were both very hard workers
and devoted their life to the
ranch. In 1981, they leased the
ranch and moved to Sturgis. In
1998, Inga passed away.  In 1999,
Irwin sold the ranch. He kept one
saddle horse so he could go ride
once in a while. He went on trail
rides and worked cattle into his
90's.
In addition to ranching, Irwin
was active in the following:  South
Dakota Stockgrowers Association,
Masons 50+ years, Farm Bureau,
Black Hills National Cemetery
Conservancy, Elk Creek Soil Con-
servation, Rural Conservation
and Development Board, County
Commissioner, Kiwanis, Indus-
trial Expansion Council, Senior
Citizens, and the American Can-
cer Society.
He is survived by three daugh-
ters and one son and families:
Lila (Casey) Jones of Dowling,
MI, Lola (Dick) Frederickson, and
Jessie (Charlie) Russell, both of
Sturgis, SD, and Pete (Patsy)
Richardson of San Diego, CA; sev-
enteen grandchildren; twenty-
three great grandchildren; and
four great great-grandchildren.
He was preceded in death by
his parents; his wife, Inga;
brother, Billy; sister, Arlene;
granddaughter, Destiny Jones;
and great grandson, Cooper Ur-
baniak.
A memorial has been estab-
lished to the Enning Volunteer
Fire Department.
Private services were held on
July 16, 2013, with burial in the
Bear Butte Cemetery in Sturgis,
SD. 
Condolences may be sent to the
family at
www.kinkadefunerals.com.
Irwin Richardson
Debbie reported that paint is
in the grant for the ice house.
Riley wondered if they shouldn’t
power wash it before it is painted.
Reed is still working on the proj-
ect and don’t know when that
work will be done.
Council approved Dr. Thomas
Jacobsen as the medical director
for the ambulance, with Verna
Schad as the assistant.
Barb Berndt presented her re-
port on the police department
and ambulance committee meet-
ing. The PD received the grant
for the bulletproof vests and al-
ready have them. Chief Frank-
furth hasn’t heard anything on
the grant for the digital speed
sign. The Freshman Impact pro-
gram will be held at the Commu-
nity Center rather than the
school on Sept. 25th. There will
be one HP, and possibly one offi-
cer from the County for Stock
Show, along with a Tribal officer.
Hoss also wanted to close off the
block the tent is on during Stock
Show. It was noted that they
moved the tent down so parking
would be available for Lonny’s
Steak House. The PD will be
needing a new car in the next
year and should budget one in.
The ambulance received their
hardship status until October.
They will be able to have one
EMT, rather than two, and a
driver. They are planning EMT
classes for this fall so hope to get
some new EMTs. The door at the
ambulance hall needs to be re-
paired or replaced. Ighram com-
mented that the bank is
providing pop for the kids for the
Freshman Impact program.
Members felt it unfortunate that
only freshman get to attend, all
high school students could learn
from it.
Dianne Hellekson only had
one item to report for the recre-
ation committee. Two light poles
are broken off at Durkee Lake by
the picnic tables at the dock.
Dupper said he has two poles to
put up.
Karen Inghram gave her utili-
ties report. The committee dis-
cussed LED lights for the street
lights as they are more economi-
cal to run. They may be a little
more costly to begin with but in
the long run they would save
money. They have had no luck
finding a replacement bucket
truck at their $60,000 budget.
They may have to increase their
amount to $70-80,000. Dupper
did find one for $69,000 that is
ready to go. The repair work on
the water tower should start
within the next week. It was also
suggested they change the fee for
new hookups as it has been sev-
eral years since they have up-
dated.
Peggy Riley said the streets
committee discussed paving N.
Main to the county line, curb and
gutter in the housing area west of
Hwy 73, chip sealing this year
and also crack sealing. Bids for a
street sweeper will be opened on
August 6th. The transmission in
the blade needs to be repaired. It
was suggested they get a quote
for this. Bob Linn is working on
the drainage at the fairgrounds.
The valley at Fishers is marked
where it will be. It was noted that
Linn is not interested in doing
curb and gutter. She said the air-
port committee also met. A grant
to purchase land and fence it was
discusssed. The liquor committee
items included replacing the
cooler under the bar and upgrad-
ing the security cameras. They
are working the bugs out of the
new computer. As of now, they
only have two bartenders for
Stock Show. The possibility of
closing off the package liquor
door during Stock Show, and
using wrist bands as a means of
recognizing carded patrons was
their thought. They would also
like to have the bar sign rehung.
A dish was discussed for the bar
but they decided not to go with it
as it would bave to be commercial
rate and that is very expensive.
Two building permits were is-
sued: Jake Schauer for a
water/sewer connection and Rick
Smiths for siding and windows.
The arrears list was reviewed
and discussed.
Their next meeting will be
Tuesday, August 6th.

The U.S. Department of Edu-
cation (DoE) has a specific role
within the federal government,
fostering the education and
growth of our nation’s students.
The coordination of federal educa-
tion programs, management of
education activities, and supple-
menting states efforts to provide
our students with the highest
quality education is a massive re-
sponsibility–one that requires
both financial and workforce re-
sources. So it was disconcerting
when it was revealed that DoE
will be assisting with the imple-
mentation and dissemination of
information of ObamaCare.
While the effects of the presi-
dent’s health care law will be felt
by parents, teachers, and their
families, it is unclear how the
DoE’s involvement in implemen-
tation will further the depart-
ment’s mission of educating our
nation’s students. Further, the
implementation of ObamaCare
will require taxpayer dollars
and/or federal employees to shift
focus from education related ef-
forts to focus on execution of a law
that should be spearheaded out of
the Department of Health and
Human Services–not DoE. The
department’s involvement in
these efforts raise questions
about why the DoE is focusing on
implementing ObamaCare in-
stead of fulfilling the priorities of
the agency’s mission, and what
authority the DoE and other fed-
eral agencies have to disseminate
information and assist with the
implementation of ObamaCare, a
law that 55 percent of respon-
dents in a recent Gallup poll view
unfavorably.
The DoE is not the first federal
agency that has indicated it will
aid in the implementation of Oba-
maCare. Numerous federal agen-
cies have announced intentions to
assist with the implementation of
the president’s signature health
care law, despite the fact that
none of these agencies have rele-
vant jurisdiction.
Due to my concerns with the
DoE’s involvement in the imple-
mentation of ObamaCare, I re-
cently led a group of my
Republican Senate colleagues in
sending a letter to Secretary of
Education Arne Duncan question-
ing the DoE’s authority to involve
itself in the implementation of
ObamaCare. The letter questions
the amount of federal spending
the department will devote to im-
plementation, the number of DoE
employees that will be used for
the effort, and what authority the
DoE has to disseminate informa-
tion and assist with implementa-
tion of ObamaCare.
Rather than commandeering
the DoE and other federal agen-
cies to assist in the implementa-
tion of programs and provisions
that are not, and may never be
ready–as evidenced by the admin-
istration’s latest delay of the em-
ployer mandate–the admin-
istration should instead focus on
solutions that actually lower the
cost of care and allow Americans
to keep the insurance they like. I
will continue to monitor the im-
plementation of ObamaCare to
ensure the federal government is
not diverting important resources
from their intended purposes to
aid in the implementation of this
broken legislation.
Education Department should focus on helping
students, not implementing ObamaCare By Senator John Thune

Central Meade County News
By Sandy Rhoden
Union Center received a much
needed shot of moisture on Satur-
day night, bringing an inch of
rain to the area. There was some
golf ball sized hail that did a bit
of damage to the north side of
some buildings and trees. The
temperatures have remaind hot
into the 90s through Sunday.
Brooke Enright was selected to
serve on the South Dakota Farm-
ers Union Junior Advisory Coun-
cil for 2013-2014. She was one of
six youth elected by her peers
during the organization's annual
state leadership camp on June 2-
7. Brook will organize and facili-
tate the 2014 Farmers Union
State Leadership Camp and at-
tend several Farmers Union func-
tions including the State Fair and
the Farmers Union State Conven-
tion. Brooke will be a senior at
Faith High School this fall.
Approximately 60 - 70 people
attended the 20th anniversary
event for the Central Meade
County Community Center on
Saturday. They had a good meal
and some comments were made
by Harold Delbridge about previ-
ous board members and such.
They have been selling chances
on a quilt, made by Edna Smith,
to raise money for air-condition-
ing for the building. The hail hit
hard during the event so folks
hurried home to assess the dam-
age.
Jack and Edna Smith's home
got pelted on the north side as did
Levi and Hillory Rhoden's by hail
on Saturday. Rob Smith lost a
porch window and many gardens
were flattened. With the warm
temperatures Central Meade
County could use more moisture
at any time.
Larry Rhoden was the keynote
speaker at the Meade County Re-
publican Picnic held at Lamphere
Ranch on Sunday. Senator Larry
Rhoden, Rep. Dean Wink, and
Gary Cammack were in atten-
dance as our District 29 legisla-
tors. Past legislators, Marie
Ingalls and Marguerite Kleven,
were recognized as well as former
governor, Walter Dale Miller.
Folks enjoyed a very good meal
that included roast beef, twice
baked potatoes, beans, salad, and
desserts. The night ended with a
team of Gary Cammack, Larry
Rhoden, Ross Lamphere and
Scott Philips working to finally
retrieve keys out of Gary and
Amy Cammack's vehicle that
were locked inside.
Ben and Laura Meyer wel-
comed new baby daughter,
Nevaeh Jo, into the world at
12:24 a.m. Sunday weighing 9 lbs.
She was born at home in Union
Center and baby and mom are
both doing great. Robert and
JoDee Ingalls are the proud
grandparents. She joins big
brother, Bryson at home.
Harold Waterland, Allen Wa-
terland, Robert, Lacey, Quirt, and
Rio Wondercheck, D’Anne,
Amanda and Troy Thompson
were Friday night supper guests
at my house to honor Bub Thomp-
son for his 65th birthday. I sent a
photo of him in his diaper and
cowboy boots along with the head
shot of him to the Faith paper for
his birthday ad but I guess it did-
n’t fit. Darn! If you’d like to see it,
it’s in the Timber Lake Topic.
After church Sunday, Tucker
and Bev Hudson drove to Mait-
land Canyon near Spearfish and
had dinner and visited with
Tucker’s sister, the Kelloggs. The
Kelloggs took them for a drive up
the canyon and over to Mt. Roo-
sevelt in the afternoon.
Tuesday, Phyllis and Marvin
Coleman were afternoon, supper,
and evening guests of Jim and
Vonnie O’Deas. They came to
check up on Amy Deichert and
see how she was doing after her
adventure with the cow. Dominos
was the game for the evening.
O’Deas were also celebrating an
anniversary.
Wednesday found Amy De-
ichert and Vonnie O'Dea in Rapid
City for appointments. They met
Holly and Paige at noon and
Paige came home to spend until
Friday night when Amy met
Holly at Sturgis. Amy then went
to Spearfish to be on hand for a
wedding on Saturday. Quiet
house for O’Deas until Monday.
Tuesday, Robert, Lacey, Quirt,
and Rio Wondercheck and I were
in Pierre for another checkup on
Quirt’s hearing. The good news of
the day was that Rio has good
hearing.
The children of Jack and Kath-
leen Ward of rural Timber Lake
held a benefit for their mom
Kathleen on Saturday in Timber
Lake. Kathleen is being treated
for cancer and could use our
prayers. I thought that some
readers might like to know this as
they have probably roped at the
Ward Ranch Arena. Jack and
Kathleen’s oldest daughter, Kim
Pinney, lives at Philip. Kim’s
daughter, Kinzey, takes care of
my dad at the Philip Nursing
Home. Small world isn’t it.
Speaking of nursing homes,
Neva Samuelson is in the Belle
Fourche Nursing Home. She has
been ill and needs to regain
strength. Neva is the mother of
John Samuelson and the sister of
Darrel Griffith. Darrel has also
been under the weather so I hope
he’s home soon.
Congratulations to Troy
Thompson, who tied for first place
Saturday in Dupree 4-H rodeo
bull riding. D’Anne and Amanda
attended the rodeo with him.
I keep copies of my news on my
computer so that I can check back
on what I have written. I have a
new computer and can’t get to my
archives right now so if I said this
before, I apologize. When I wrote
about the Faith High School
rodeo club John Heidler pointed
out that I missed Keith
Schuelke’s name as a member of
the club. Sorry about that Keith
and John. Also Ronnie Bachman
I need to talk to you and write
down all that you told me about
Mr. Pust last year at Marge Hoff-
man’s sale. I have not forgotten, I
just put some things off! In hopes
of reminding myself about the
Pust story I looked in the old 1960
Faith book. I easily found the
Pust name by using an index that
Richard Collins made up for the
book. I received my copy by photo
copying it from someone else who
had received theirs from Richard.
If anyone is interested in it, I
think we could make a copy. How
about it Collins family? Would
any of you care or does anyone
have a copyright to it? Richard
certainly did a lot of work on this.
He was an amazing guy when it
came to technology.
Harold and I were in Spearfish
Sunday and visited Kristen, Chet
and Cadence Kilmer. Jill
Schilling and kids joined us in the
afternoon. They had all been to
Florida to Disney World last
month but were not overly excited
about it.
If we were in an arena I’d ask
for a round of applause for Faith
and their Appreciation Day last
Saturday. I didn’t know it before
but I understand Corinna Thomp-
son was the mover and shaker on
this deal. Way to go Corinna! We
were in for the rummage sales,
prize drawings and Craft Fair. I
bought a wedding gift, a baby gift,
some Christmas gifts and some
good food at the Craft Fair. What
a great place to buy “Made In
America” items. They are of good
quality and one of a kind, unique
items. Not only that, I am NOT
helping a chain store get more
money for foreign investors.
Dawn and Alysha Simons had a
wonderful food booth raising
money to fight cancer. I have to
tell you Alysha made some really
delicious Oreo Bar cookies.
Alysha, you’re a pretty special girl
for working so hard for this and
Dawn you’re one darn good
momma! Corinna, I hope you
keep kicking Faith in the behind
to get it moving like it used to. I
have such great memories of
Faith having Demolition Derby
Day, Appreciation Day, Fourth of
July fireworks, Homecoming, and
Faith Stock Show. If you’d like to
see Faith get off its duff we all
need to be sure and make the ef-
fort to come to town and support
deals like Appreciation Day. We
need our small town and we need
the small town businesses that
care about people!  Go Corinna…
Keep ‘em movin’ girl!
Things look a little better in
Faith Country as we had some
rains over the past week. Friday
we received .35 of rain along with
thunder and lightning. Others
close to us got .50 that same day.
Saturday, we got .45 more of rain
and some close strikes that shook
the house. Apparently one of the
Friday strikes started a prairie
fire on my brother, Bub’s just
north of our place, but rained it
out before it really got moving.
Tucker and Bev Hudson were
Hills shoppers on Thursday. That
evening they met some of their
classmates in Sturgis to work on
plans for their class reunion in
September.
Happy 100th Birthday to
Harold Bauer, he was an original
Marcus baseball team player
managed by the Bishop Brothers.
He lives in Rapid City in his own
apartment. De and Kay King and
Mae Keffeler attended the party
for him Sunday in the Sturgis
Park. We visited with Dale and
Marie Ingalls who were also on
their way home from the party.
Harold, I have to apologize for not
being there. We thought it was
Saturday in Rapid City and knew
we could not do that! Best wishes
on a very special
birthday.   Thinking of all the
folks I know who are or were Cen-
tral Meade County residents and
reached the age of 100 and be-
yond, I wonder what they did
right out here? Was it eating red
meat, working hard, being honest
and square with the neighbors,
praying to God and attending
church, raising a family in hard
times without all the government
handouts?  How about it Harold?
Do you have any advice?

Opal Area News By Kay Ingalls
Faith News By Loretta Passolt
More of those 90s last week,
and no rain. We had a thunder-
storm pass through here Friday
night around 11:30 but all we got
was thunder and lightning, no
rain. They say chances yet this
week, but it all seems to be hit-
ting everywhere but here. Hope-
fully it’s hitting in the country
where they need it, and it sounds
like it did in many areas this past
week. We had a thunderstorm
roll through here early this Tues-
day morning. It gave us quite a
bit of thunder and lightning but
only about .10” of rain. Better
than nothing though!
The fire whistle blew a couple
times last week but I never heard
where they were. We’ll probably
hear it more often as things start
getting drier.
Paul said he visited with Ryan
Ross at M&D last week. He and
his family were here visiting his
parents, Raymond and Bette.
Condolences to the family of
Irwin Richardson. Irwin passed
away July 9th. He was a long-
time area rancher and served on
many boards over the years. He
will be missed.
Garnet Gaaskjolen visited at
the Keith Gaaskjolen ranch on
Monday afternoon. Clayton
Gaaskjolen from Stanley, ND was
spending a week with his grand-
parents. A 3 year old so you can
be sure Keith and Roxi were re-
ally enjoying the week. Vanden
and Sarah Gaaskjolen and 1 year
old son were also there so she was
able to visit with them and enjoy
seeing little Eli. It was a great af-
ternoon.
Gaarnet Gaaskjolen and Betty
Walker attended the Singspira-
tion at the Coal Springs Commu-
nity Church on Sunday evening.
There were quite a few in town
on Saturday for Appreciation Day
sponsored by the City. There were
many activities held throughout
the day for young and old alike.
Customers registered in busi-
nesses all day for the chance to
win one of the many prizes do-
nated by the businesses that were
drawn for that afternoon. Corinna
Thompson, Information Center
employee, did a nice job organiz-
ing the day.
Got this e-mail from proud
grandma Georgia Collins – Fri-
day night, July 19th, the singer of
the National Anthem at the Na-
tional Finals High School Rodeo
in Rock Springs, WY was 13 year
old Jaiden Collins of Rock
Springs. Jaiden is the daughter of
Jody Collins, Rock Springs, and
James and Natalie Collins of
Pinedale, WY. James is a 1981
graduate of Newell High School,
Newell. Jaiden is the grand-
daughter and James is the son of
L. Eugene and Georgia Collins,
formerly of Newell,  now living in
Spearfish.
Paul and I were going to go to
Rapid City last Friday afternoon
and take in the car races but
Melissa informed me that after-
noon that it was about ready to
rain there. We decided to stay
home and sure enough, they were
rained out. They had them Sun-
day night so we didn’t go. Melissa
said Eric finished second in his
heat and in the main, so had a
good night, but unfortunately had
a flat tire which did some damage
to his car. He, and Wes, are going
to be busy this week getting it re-
paired. He may have an extra
week as they are talking rain Fri-
day-Sunday this week! It seems
like Rapid City has been getting
its fair share of rain this summer!
And mostly on Fridays!
I guess we all know the next
big event for Faith is Stock Show.
Be sure you check out all the ac-
tivities that are planned. You
won’t want to miss any of them!
There is no carnival this year but
they have some other fun activi-
ties for the kids.
The parade “My Hero/Heroes”
is at 10:00 a.m. on Saturday only.
Plan your entries now. Congratu-
lations to Hugh and Eleanor In-
galls for being named this year’s
Parade Marshalls!

No rain this week so everyone’s
busy in the hayfield. The last cou-
ple weeks have been hot with the
mercury occasionally creeping
into triple digits and the grain is
starting to ripen.
Jan Swan Wood came up from
Newell Tuesday to interview Bob
Hanson for a story in the Tri-
State Livestock News. We met in
Reva and I took her to Bison to
meet Bobby. At 94 years of age,
Bob has led a very interesting life.
He was born and raised in the
river breaks north of Bison and
knew most of the old cowboys
around this area. Bob started
breaking horses at the ripe old
age of eight. Besides being an ex-
cellent horseman, he’s also a
blacksmith, a welder, a carpenter,
and does beautiful woodwork on a
lathe. He was also a boxer and
rode racehorses for Nels Fogh and
other horse people around the
area.
After joining the Army in 1941
as a member of the 15th Cavalry,
Sgt. Hanson was injured in
France when his armored car was
hit by an incendiary shell. A Ger-
man aid worker found him suffer-
ing from terrible burns with the
bones in both feet smashed by the
shell that passed through the ve-
hicle and killed his driver. After
the aid worker saved his life, he
was taken captive by the Ger-
mans and spent the next four
years as a prisoner of war.
We thought it would only take
an hour or so for the interview,
but Bob was so interesting that it
turned into an all day project. I
can hardly wait to read Jan’s
story!
After I got home Tuesday
evening, Reub and I headed to-
ward Lemmon to hear the author
of “Heaven Is For Real” speak.
We had a flat tire just as we got
to Hettinger, the first one we’d
had on this vehicle, and we had
quite a time getting it changed.
Thankfully, it went flat right in
front of Alliance Ag and Dale
Nash was buying some stuff in
there. While Reub was reading
the manual and trying to figure
out how to get the doughnut out
from under the car, Dale came to
our rescue, thank goodness! After
Dale and Reub got the doughnut
put on, we headed back home
since it was after hours and no
one was around to fix the flat.
Thanks Dale!
Sunday night coming back
from Bible study at Sharon and
Lester Longwood’s, the same tire
went flat. It was dark out, but we
had a flashlight and kinda re-
membered how the tire changing
deal worked. As soon as we
started to jack up the car along
came Everett Johnson with his
cordless impact wrench, ready to
remove the lug nuts! Everett and
Leo Strid were haying for Lester
Longwood and were moving ma-
chinery when Everett saw us
parked along the road.
We attracted a crowd. Pastor
Brad and Linda Abelseth stopped
on their way back to Rapid City
and John and Corinne Erickson
swung by to check on us just as
Leo Strid pulled up with his trac-
tor and baler. There is hardly
ever any traffic on the almost
forty miles of gravel road between
our ranch and Longwood’s, but
there was no shortage of folks
stopping by to help out that night.
I’ve told you before that we live in
the greatest spot on earth and
this just reinforced my opinion.
Thanks to our friends we made it
safely back home over that long,
lonely gravel road!
We’re back in the chicken busi-
ness. Casey’s bunch went up to
our Horse Creek pasture Thurs-
day and picked up a dozen young
hens from Kaye Smith on the way
home. I put the chickens in the
barn and hopefully have the
coons locked out. Wish me
luck?     
Bob Hanson rode to Spearfish
with me on Saturday for the
Campfire Show at the Western
Heritage Center that afternoon.
The Heritage Center was cele-
brating the National Day of the
American Cowboy, focusing on
early-day ranchers and cowboys
in Harding and Perkins Counties.
Ken Williams and Kevin Willey
joined Bob, Peggy Ables and me
on the stage. Bob shared some of
his experiences growing up with
the old cowboys in Perkins
County. Kevin told stories about
Dode Willey, his great grandfa-
ther who rode for the big cattle
outfits. Ken gave us the history of
his grandfather Billy Clanton,
who came north with the Cross
Anchor and Laurel Leaf herds,
and the story of the Clanton’s
cousins involved in the gunfight
at the OK Corral in Tombstone.
We called Donn Hett up to the
stage to tell about his mother’s
brother, Howard McCrorey, win-
ning the steer wrestling finals at
the Madison Square Gardens in
New York City in 1941.
The Campfire Show featured
Tennessee Vaughn, foreman of
the Turkey Track, and Peggy
Ables related his history. Several
of Tennessee’s relatives were in
the crowd, including granddaugh-
ters Shirley Melum and Ella Ole-
son.
The Cowboy Show was held in
the theater at the Heritage Cen-
ter and having all those cowboys
gathered there together reminded
me of this:  
A cowboy lay sprawled across
three seats in a movie theater.
When the usher came by and no-
ticed this, he whispered to the
cowboy, "Sorry, sir, but you're
only allowed one seat."
The cowboy groaned but didn't
budge. The usher became more
impatient: "Sir, if you don't get up
from there I'm going to have to
call the manager."
Once again, the cowboy just
groaned. The usher marched
briskly back up the aisle, and in a
moment he returned with the
manager. Together the two of
them tried to move the cowboy,
but with no success.
Finally they summoned the po-
lice. The cops surveyed the situa-
tion briefly then asked, "All right
buddy, what's your name?"
"Fred," the cowboy moaned.
"Where’d ya come from, Fred?"
asked the cop.
With terrible pain in his voice,
and without moving a muscle,
Fred replied, "the balcony."

The U.S. House of Representa-
tives passed H.R. 5, the Student
Success Act, by a vote of 221-207.
Included in the legislation were
provisions previously introduced
by Rep. Kristi Noem to reautho-
rize the Federal Impact Aid Pro-
gram.
The Student Success Act would
reauthorize the Elementary and
Secondary Education Act, com-
monly referred to as No Child
Left Behind. This legislation will
restore local control, support ef-
fective teachers, reduce the fed-
eral footprint and empower
parents.
Noem’s bipartisan legislation,
which she introduced with Rep.
Rick Larsen (D-WA), improves
the Impact Aid program by in-
creasing efficiency, eliminating
subjectivity, and providing
greater flexibility to school dis-
tricts. Impact Aid helps many
South Dakota school districts
with costs resulting from large
amounts of federally impacted
land including military bases, In-
dian lands and federal property.
Many of these provisions were in-
cluded in the final bill.
“I believe it’s important that
we maintain a level playing field
for our South Dakota school dis-
tricts that are on or near federally
impacted land, such as Ellsworth
Air Force Base, nine Indian
Reservations or other federal
lands,” said Rep. Noem. “I’m
thankful to my colleagues in the
House for their support of this
common-sense bill that supports
our schools and students.”
Impact Aid helps local taxpay-
ers by reimbursing school dis-
tricts for the costs associated with
federal property and educating
federally connected children. To-
gether, over 1,300 of these im-
pacted school districts educate
more than 11 million children
across the country.
List of South Dakota school
districts receiving Impact Aid:
Andes, Bennett County, Bison,
Bon Homme, Chamberlain,
Colome Consolidated, Custer,
Douglas, Dupree, Eagle Butte,
Flandreau, Highmore Harrold,
Hill City, Hot Springs, Kadoka
Area, Lemmon, Lyman, McIn-
tosh, McLaughlin, Oelrichs,

County committee nomina-
tions
USDA's Farm Service Agency
(FSA) in South Dakota an-
nounced that county committee
election nominations begin June
17, 2013. Farmers, ranchers and
landowners are encouraged to
nominate candidates to serve on
their local FSA county committee
by the August 1, 2013 deadline.
Elected county committee
members serve a three-year term
and are responsible for making
decisions on FSA disaster, conser-
vation, commodity, and price sup-
port programs, as well as other
important federal farm program
issues.
County committee members
are a valuable asset because they
are local producers who partici-
pate in FSA programs themselves
and have a direct connection to
farmers and ranchers in the local
area.
Producers may nominate
themselves or others as candi-
dates. Organizations that repre-
sent minority and women farmers
and ranchers may also nominate
candidates. Nominees must par-
ticipate in a program adminis-
tered by FSA, be eligible to vote
in a county committee election,
and reside in the local adminis-
trative area (LAA) in which the
person is a candidate. To become
a nominee, eligible individuals
must sign form FSA-669A. The
form and more information about
county committee elections are
available online at:
www.fsa.usda.gov/elections.
County committees are com-
prised of three to five members
elected by local producers. All
newly elected county committee
members and alternates will take
office January 2, 2014.
Nomination forms must be
postmarked or received in the
local USDA Service Center by
close of business on August 1,
2013.
For more information about
county committees, please contact
your local FSA office or go online
at www.fsa.usda.gov.
Dewey County is seeking nom-
inations for someone to run in
LAA 2. Paula Hinckley from
Glencross is currently holding
this position.
Meade County is seeking nom-
inations for someone to run for
LAA 3. The current member is
Marge Duprel who has served 3
full terms and cannot run again.
Ziebach County is seeking
nominations for someone to run
for LAA 3. Jace Birkeland cur-
rently holds this position and has
served his maximum number of
terms.
LAA 4 is up for election this
year also and is currently held by
Sullivan White Wolf.

Following a 19 hour flight,
Lieutenant Colonel Tim Schepper
stepped out of the B-1 Lancer at
Ellsworth Air Force Base and was
surrounded by family and fellow
airmen. This wasn’t a typical
flight. In fact, this flight marked
over 5,000 hours of flight time in
the B-1 for Lt. Col. Schepper – a
milestone that no one else in the
world has reached. I would like to
not only congratulate Lt. Col.
Schepper for this incredible
achievement, but also the many
airmen that have come before
him and will come after him, for
their service to our great country.
While the next generation
bomber is on track to be in service
by the mid-2025s, the B-1
bombers are still the workhorses
of our nation’s bomber fleet and
have been part of military opera-
tions in Afghanistan for over a
decade.  Early last year, the B-1
flew its 10,000th combat mis-
sion.  
It is crucial that our military’s
readiness is not jeopardized due
to recent budget cuts, which is
why I voted for and supported
multiple efforts to replace these
so-called sequester cuts with tar-
geted and responsible spending
reductions that did not dispropor-
tionately affect our nation’s
armed forces.   Additionally, I
have cosponsored legislation to
prevent another planned round of
military budget cuts by slowing
the growth of the federal work-
force and freezing congressional
pay.
Earlier this year the Air Force
planned to ground the B-1s for
the rest of the year.  I had the op-
portunity to question the Air
Force during a House Armed
Services Committee hearing
about the impact the decision
may have on military readiness.
The Air Force then allowed for
flying on a limited basis and has
now announced that flying hours
have been restored. This decision
is absolutely vital and in the best
interests of our country’s defense.
I believe we have a responsibility
and a duty to ensure that our men
and women are fully prepared
and equipped for their military
missions.
I will continue to fight for the
B-1 bomber and all the missions
and airmen, not only at Ellsworth
but across the state of South
Dakota. Lt. Col. Schepper has
proudly served this country for
decades and we owe it to him, and
every other service member, to
support and provide for our
armed forces during their mis-
sions and after they return home.
Supporting our
Air Force’s
workhorses
