City approves agreement with school board for safe Prevent WNV with insect repellent, mosquito control programs room; hears from Keystone XL Pipeline reps
By Loretta Passolt The Faith City Council had one of their lengthiest meetings on June 4th. Council members met with the Faith School Board to review and discuss the agreement between the two entities for the new safe room grant, and to hear from two representative from the Keystone XL Pipeline on the construction workforce camps (man camps). The Girls Scouts were on the agenda first. Angela Ostrander came before Council to get some input for the placement of a sign they are having made for the roadside park, and a date to commemorate it. They also have some flowers to put in. Lowes is donating mulch for a 16x30 area. Angela said the Girls Scouts have been working on this project for three years and would like to get it done. One of the trees they planted was broken by a vehicle and the owner paid for replacement of it, plus an additional one, both smaller. Mayor Haines said the playground will be moved there so the sign just needs to be out of the way of it. Garnet Gaaskjolen visited with Council about Arrow Transit Bus Service. She talked with Arrow and they would like to have $1,000 to continue the service here for the balance of the year. The Meade Co. Commissioners declined their request for funding earlier. She said they will stop in Faith once a month. There are some here who have no vehicle to get them to appointments, etc. in the Hills. She wondered if Council would be willing to give $50 to anyone from here needing to catch a ride on the bus. That would be cheaper than giving the $1,000. Mayor Haines agreed they need to get the service back here on a regular basis. Inghram wondered if they could meet with Arrow. Council tabled their decision until they get more information. A temporary liquor license was issued for the Lone Tree Bar for the Fordyce/Humble wedding dance at the fairgrounds on July 27th. Council approved the Second Reading of Ordinance 305 for the supplemental appropriation of $10,000 for the fire department’s truck. At this time the agreement with the school for the safe room was discussed in length. Several questions concerning the payments, bids, etc. were asked. The agreement states that the school will pay all except the $100,000 the city will pay. Bret Hanson wanted it known that the school isn’t going to be able to come up with $400,000. Atty. Bogue explained that they would not go ahead with the project if the two don’t agree on the bid. They have no intention of letting it be more than the school can afford, but as with all construction one can expect overrun of expenses. Bogue said that no one had given him a limit as to how much the school could afford. As the school will be using it for more than a safe room, the expense of the cafeteria and gym area would be theirs. School board chairman Johnson said she understood the city wouldn’t accept the bid until the school board sees it also. Other questions concerning the payments, warranty, stocking the safe room, etc. were posed to Bogue. Council approved the agreement with the new changes to be made prior to the school board approving it, pending final review by Bogue and Nicole from Emergency Management. The bids can be rejected if neither entity is comfortable with the project cost, and other arrangements can’t be worked out. Once the building would be completed, the city would turn ownership over to the school. Mayor Haines opened the hearing for the Faith Stock Show liquor and malt beverage licenses hearing at 7:30. Stock Show president Colt Haines stated they would like to add liquor to be served under the tent. Lonny Collins visited with Debbie Brown earlier about moving the tent from in from of his business so his customers could park. He was hoping they could move it down the street further. Jon Collins said the electricity would have to be moved then. Mayor Haines said they would have to readvertise if they move the location. Lonny Collins opposed the present location via telephone. Approval of the temporary liquor license was then discussed further. They can move the tent to the next block, to be placed anywhere within that block, as long as it doesn’t block the cross street. With a tie vote on the original location, Mayor Haines broke that tie with a no vote. Council then approved the license for the 2nd block of Main Street, and the malt beverage license for the June roping at the fairgrounds. Two representatives from the Keystone XL Pipeline shared information on the construction workforce camp (man camp) that will be put in at Howes. According to the rep these camps are selfcontained. There will be 600 beds and 250 rv spaces in an 80 acre fenced area, on Dean Wink’s land, complete with 24/7 security, cafeteria service, groceries, medical service, etc. These guys will work 10 hour days, 6 days a week, so not a lot of idle time. We may see some of them in town once in awhile, mostly weekends. Some may come in to sporting events just for a break. Families don’t usually travel with them so there shouldn’t be any increase in school enrollment. The service stations will see the biggest business, for the purchase of diesel fuel. They have 8 of these camps along the line, three of those in South Dakota. The camp wll be maintained for 12-18 months, depending on weather. Faith has nothing to worry about with this camp; it won’t be anything like Williston, ND. Mayor Haines will be taking a tour of one of the camps next week. The First Reading of Ordinance 306 for potential problems from unexpected development pressure (actually a zoning ordinance) was discussed at length. Atty. Bogue had a different version than their initial one. Members discussed the requirements for new buildings and spacing requirements for temporary campgrounds. Karen Inghram said she felt the spacing should be 20’ between campers for fire safety issues. After hearing about the man camps members decided the Continued on Page 2 As the weather warms up and the risk of mosquito bites increases now is the time for South Dakotans to get in the habit of using insect repellent to prevent West Nile virus (WNV).  “Just as we prepare for flu season each fall, we need to be prepared for the West Nile virus every summer,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist for the South Dakota Department of Health. “West Nile virus can be a serious, even fatal, illness but the good news is we can all reduce our risk with a few simple precautions.” Kightlinger said people can prevent mosquito bites and reduce their risk of WNV by: •Using mosquito repellents (DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535) and limit exposure by covering up. •Limiting time outdoors from dusk to midnight when Culex mosquitoes are most active. Culex are the primary carrier of WNV in South Dakota. •Getting rid of standing water that gives mosquitoes a place to breed. •Supporting local mosquito control efforts. These precautions are especially important for people at high risk for complications from WNV. This includes individuals over 50, pregnant women, transplant patients, and people who have diabetes, high blood pressure or a history of alcohol abuse. Since its first human WNV case in 2002, South Dakota has reported more than 2,000 cases, including 29 deaths. South Dakota cases have occurred as early as June but peak transmission is July through early September.

Letter to the Editor
Editor: I value our children and their education which is most important to our future; therefore, because silence gives my consent, I am expressing and sharing what I know. My information comes from the National Review. Common Core is a set of standards for math and English developed largely by the Gate Foundation money and pushed by the Obama administration and National Governors Association. It defines what every school child should know from grade 1-12. It has a packet for teacher evaluation for the federally funded tests designed to insure schools are teaching Common Core. 40 states hurriedly adopted it before the standards were written in response to Obama’s advancement of a$4 billion dollar grant! It was promoted by Constitutional Governor Mitch Daniels and State Superintendent of Public Schools, Tony Bennett, an up and coming rising GOP star. Only Nebraska, Texas, Alaska and Virginia have declined. Minnesota adopted only the English part. Two Indianapolis mothers, Heather Crussin and Erin Tuttle notice that their children’s Catholic school math homework had declined. Memorization from a script was the practice of Common Core, and few novels were read. Upon checking with other parents, they learned that no one had any idea about the curriculum change. R. James Milgram, a math professor at Stanford withheld his approval on the grant for these reasons.  Andrew Porter states that
BRODY JAMES SHAWN WELTER
Common Core is written at a low level and has no resemblance to the high achievement in other countries. Emmett McGroarty was a very important person in the journey of Heather and Erin to take down Common Core. Other helpful persons or groups were: Pioneer Institute’s Jamie Gass, Hoover Institution’s Bill Evers and the Heritage Foundation’s Lindsey Burke as well as the indispensible Indiana Tea Party. McGroarty and Jane Robbins at the American Principle Project were unique. McGroarty, called the “General” of the movement, strategizes with people in every state, day or night, Saturday or Sunday whenever he is needed. The American Principle Project gave support mentally and emotionally to Heather and Erin with their grassroots research. Marie DeKnikker   Cambridge, ID
City council
only issue to decide on was the campgrounds spacing. This was tabled until the July meeting. Council approved hiring Royce Haines and Ashton Delbridge as lifeguards at the pool at $7.75 hr., hours to be divided equally among all. The plan is to fill the pool Wednesday, June 5th. Lessons were approved for 45 minutes a day for 5 days, at a cost of $20. There will be several levels offered. Council also reviewed the rules for the pool. Jim Holloway presented a quote for $500 to spray weeds at Durkee Lake. Burning weeds was also discussed. Jon Collins said they really need to burn old weeds and it might be a good time to do it. Council approved Holloway’s quote upon the approval from Fire Chief Justin Haines of burning the weeds. Council approved Resolution #06-04-13-01 for ARC (Access Recovery Charges). The City is mandated to pass on an increase for telephone ARC charges. The fee will increase from 50¢ to $1.00 for residential and single-line business and mulii-line business will increase from $1.00 to $2.00. The road north of town needs to have mag water put on it to cut down on dust. The city crew will have to work on it before the county comes to mag water it. Mayor Haines called about fireworks. Council approved him ordering the same amount as last year, $2700. There were no fireworks last year because of the drought, so none were paid for. Year end financials were given to members to take home and review for the next meeting. Debbie said the computer at the bar is about to crash. This is the one they do liquor inventory on. She found a new one at a cost of $700 plus cost for them to come and install the program, which will take about 5 hours. Council approved purchasing the computer and installation. Barb Berndt said she had several people talk to her about cleaning up at the lake. It would be nice to get the sand volleyball area cleaned up. Jon also said the lights at the lake have been shot out again. The cement boat ramp

also needs to be repaired. Council thought Bob Linn should look it over and give a quote. Barb will call these people for a work day. Several council members will also help. Jon also said someone has been cutting down dead trees and leaving what they don’t want, leaving a mess. Committee appointments were assigned at this time. Arlie Hulm came before Council to ask for use of the gym for boys basketball practice. They have joined a summer league in Rapid City and want additional practice. They already have it on Tuesdays and Thursdays, and would like to add Mondays. Arlie said they would sweep and he will tell the guys not to use the showers. Council approved use on Monday nights. The purchase of an aviation fuel truck was tabled until the June 18th meeting. Mayor Haines thought maybe they should consider putting in a fuel tank at the airport for jet fuel. Council retired into executive session at 9:45 to discuss personnel.

Heart Disease is the #1 killer of all people
By Kendra Enright R.N. Heart Disease chooses its clientele indiscriminately. It does not matter what color of the rainbow your skin is, if you are male or female, your age or what part of the world you come from. It looks at all of us without prejudice. If you give heart disease a chance you could become one of its clients but you have the ability to STOP it before it starts or have a great amount of control if you have been told you have heart disease. Heart disease kills more people each year than all cancers combined. We all have only one heart and keeping it healthy should be one of our main goals throughout the year. We can live without many of the other parts of our body because we have duplicates such as two eyes, two kidneys, two legs, two arms. You are probably thinking, “Well what about the brain- we only have one of them”. Yes that is true but the heart pumps blood and oxygen to the brain to keep it alive so the bottom line is we cannot live without our hearts pumping well. Our heart weighs about 9-12 ounces (weight of a full pop can) and is about the size of our hand. The heart works ceaselessly, beating 100,000 times a day, 40 million times a year–in total clocking up three billion heartbeats over an average lifetime. It keeps the body freshly supplied with oxygen and nutrients, while clearing away harmful waste matter. Keeping our heart healthy is an everyday challenge. Poor diet and little to no exercise can put our health in jeopardy. Making better choices in our diet such as eating an apple or orange instead of a candy bar or bag of chips can make a difference. Impulse buying of convenience or fast foods that are often high calorie and high salt items can get us in trouble by increasing our risk of: weight gain, increased cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes and heart disease. If carefully chosen, snacks can fill nutritional gaps and boost energy without causing weight-gain or other health worries. Here are some tips for heart healthy snacking: 1. Drinking a glass of water before grabbing a snack can help curb your appetite and also helps keep you hydrated. We lose about 2 liters of fluid a day through natural processes but many people do not replace this fluid and become chronically dehydrated. Dehydration can lead to daytime fatigue, unable to concentrate, headaches and muscle weakness. 2. Plan your snack ahead of time so you do not just grab anything. If you want finger food, check out the fruit and vegetable isles at the grocery store or grab a granola bar, cheese, nuts, pretzels or trail mix for healthy options. 3. Be aware of portion size, don’t fall victim to portion distortion. Check the nutrition label to see how many servings are in the container. Many snacks have more than one serving in the package. 4. Avoid using snacks as a comfort when stressed or upset. Try going for a walk or doing some other physical activity instead. 5. Avoid all day nibbling. Limit snacks to every 3-4 hours. 6. Watch the kinds of carbohydrates you eat. Carbohydrates from sugars and sweets provide quick energy followed by an energy crash. Look for items like nuts, seeds and beans for long lasting energy. 7. If you just have to have some chips or cookies, choose the lower fat, lower sodium varieties and eat them in moderation. 8. Be a smart shopper. Don’t be suckered by "low-fat" and "all natural" claims. An "all natural" product may be filled with sugar, which is in fact a natural ingredient. "Low-fat" products often have just as many calories as their fullfat counterparts. Read the nutrition label before buying to see what you are really getting. 9. When in doubt about what to do go back up to tip number one. Keeping our hearts healthy should be one of the top priorities in our lives.

In so many ways ...
The list is endless of how we individually recall our fathers. Even the same memories can seem to run the gamut from smothering and vicarious to keeping an aloof distance. A curious combination of words can fly us back to our younger years, because that was how dad used to say those words. A scent, be it of car oil, pipe tobacco or an aftershave, can put Dad right in front of us. The way the water blindingly reflects the sun through the reeds, the threetoned car rumbling by on the road, the worn easy chair at a yard sale, all make the eye blink and we see Dad. The heat of a carpet burn from roughhousing in the living room, the slime of grease from a old engine, a dusty and gritty coat of dirt reminiscent of the ball park, all are touches of Dad. Remember being spanked? Or was the disappointment in Dad’s eyes over your behavior a far worse punishment? Was it a laugh and a challenging “Oh, yeah?” or a quiet aging behind the eyes when you first called him “Old man?” As a son, did you really have “the talk” about girls with him? As a daughter, did your first few dates actually face the traditional inquisition with him when the young men picked you up? Was it an unspoken truth that Dad could actually do the dishes if Mom asked or she had to be gone for a few days? “Daddy, Daddy, don’t let go of the bike!” And he had already let go and was trying to not gasp for air while jogging alongside. It was not Mom’s place, but was Dad’s duty to break the news to you about your childhood dog.

At the time, only Mom thought to suspect that while Dad was digging the final resting place, he was crying, too. One day you found Dad’s wallet still on his dresser, and a photo of you was in it. Those silly pictures of you from grade school are hidden away in the albums, but guess who has them memorized? Mom finally breaks down and takes some of your art work off of the refrigerator, and, mysteriously, someone puts them back up. Mom may be the one who phoned repeatedly to check on you when they were gone that first time overnight, but you could hear her reporting to him as if he had insisted on the calls. You may be 75, but Dad still calls you kid. Who taught you the difference between a regular and Phillips screwdriver? Who didn’t care much for Monopoly, but once pressured into playing could beat you every time? You get up for a drink of water, and who is still staring at the TV, and its a sob story movie? He may be almost perfect in your eyes, but it is Dad who always wants his kids to do better than he did. It’s one thing to see Mom holding her newborn grandchild, it’s another to see Dad doing the same thing. Everybody tells stories, but whose are listened to more intently because those stories are of events seldom spoken of? It’s unsettling that, the older you get, the smarter your Dad was. And we who hold dear such memories of our fathers in these and so many other ways, we say back to them, “I love you, too, Dad.”

We had cooler temperatures most of last week, mostly 60s. We got about .25” of rain Friday night. It looks like more 70s and some 80s this week with a chance of rain some of those days. Dave and Eldora Fischbach spent several days at their house in Rapid City last week. Eldora went over on Tuesday and came home Sunday. She had to check in several of her quilts on Wednesday for the quilt show at the Civic Center over the weekend. She also taught a quilt class on Thursday. Dave went over later in the week. Daughter Susan and Dean arrived by airplane on Thursday and spent several days with them. Susan took in the quilt show with Eldora. Eldora received a 2nd place ribbon on one of her quilts and Susan received a 3rd on one of her wall hangings; Eldora got a 3rd for the quilting on it. With over 500 entries in various categories I’d say that’s really good! Dean flew up to Faith on Friday and got in some branding with his dad and John Capp. They flew home to Indiana on Sunday. George and Annelle Afdahl spent two weeks traveling through parts of Wyoming, Idaho, Colorado, and Montana. They joined Juel Afdahl’s family at Canton’s high school rodeos in Buffalo and Sheridan, Wyoming, and visited at Georgia (Afdahl) and Jeff Stocklin’s at Ten Sleep, Wyoming, Clay Stocklin’s at Hailey, Idaho which is near Sun Valley, and Megan (Stocklin) and Ea’mon O’Toole’s near Savery, Colorado. The majority of the country is green and beautifuyl. She said some of Yellowstone Park was receivng snow and had slushy roads. Jerry and Kay Palmer spent a few days last week visiting daughter Misty and family. Jerry said they were heading home Sunday but he got talked into doing some work on Monday.
I had a phone call from Aunt Marge Hoffman last Wednesday. She had spent five days in the hospital in Rapid City but was doing better. Enjoyed reading Kevin Jensen’s email in the Marcus News last week. I remember going in to Mack’s many time on the way to or from school. And I loved going to the old library upstairs. I was a big reader in those days and made many visits there. I loved the little curved hallway. Always thought that was so neat! As for Thompson Drug’s soda fountain, I spent many years behind it and still miss the special sundaes, (Black & White, Mexican) and of course, the great banana splits, and the fountain drinks. My favorite fountain drink for many years was a vanilla coke, then later I added lemon to it! Yummy!! Never cared for cherry coke. Still don’t! I also remember having to clean that soda fountain, and let me tell you, it wasn’t fun! The new store just didn’t seem like Thompson Drug without the fountain! Donna Henschel was in the office last week with a copy of the newspaper from their hometown of Princeton, MN. It had a nice article on Tower Stool and Faith. She also said there was a nice picture of their mural in the National Geographic magazine. Congratulations to our FHS Rodeo Club for winning the team trophy at the Dupree Regional Rodeo over the weekend. There are about a dozen of the them who qualified for the State HS Rodeo in Belle Fourche next week. We wish them the best of luck there!
Opal Area News
By Kay Ingalls
Tuesday, Bernice Lemmel and Tracy Ingalls and I sat on the school election board at the Opal School. We had a good visit and 18 voters. Not much interest on the school elections as they are all candidates from the extreme western portion of the school district where most of the population resides. The comment was made that most, if not all, of them don't even know the location of the Opal School. OJ Heidler made a business trip into Faith on Monday and other than that mostly just brandings to help with. Ethel Ingalls and daughters Sheryl Lesmeister and Debbie Delbridge made it back from Rochester on Tuesday. Howard and I had appointments in Rapid City on Wednesday, as did Glenn and Margaret Fogelman so they rode with us. Rod and Tracy Ingalls were in Sturgis and Rapid City that day as well.  Justin Ingalls helped  with branding chores at the Russell Simons ranch.  Dwayne and Zona Vig drove to Rapid City on Thursday where Zona had an appointment for a procedure on her leg.  Daughter Aurora Keffeler joined them and came back home with them to spend a few days helping out. Friday afternoon, JT, Kelsey and Brixie stopped by for a visit and Aunty Aurora was entertained by Brixie, then the ladies joined Hope Vig and all went for a walk. Dale and Marie Ingalls visited a bit one evening this week at the Lemmel home.  Thursday, the Lemmels had doctor appointments in Sturgis, then Friday Bernice went to Spearfish for the wedding of her granddaughter, Camarae Burke. Friday Rod, Tracy and Justin Ingalls pulled our camper to daughter Rita Bestgen's  for them to use for overflow guests from time to time, or a campout for her grandkids.  They went on to Sturgis and picked up a ranch pickup that was repaired, on to Rapid to pick up a 4-wheeler that had been fixed and the old red ranch pickup that was ready to roll again.  Ouch is what the checkbook thought, but glad to have everything up and running right again. Howard and I left on Friday forenoon to go to Watertown to visit friends and attend the Ingalls Family Reunion held on Sunday at Clear Lake, SD. Only 7 people attended and 3 more joined us for awhile. Harold and Mary Ingalls, his sisters Bette and Audrey and her husband Darrel and us.  Harold's youngest son Terry, his wife and youngest son were who attended.  West River will host next summer.  We came home that evening. Ethel Ingalls had some health complications on Friday evening and had the ambulance come and take her to town. She is doing better and plans to be home perhaps Monday. Dwayne Vig flew to Prairie City to hold worship services on Sunday, then checked cattle and water situations on his way home. Dave and Barb Fogelman arrived at the Glenn Fogelman home on Sunday to spend a few days.  They live in Texas.

At this point in time our part of the state is so green we’re making Ireland jealous. The plant growth is wonderful even when you’re mowing the yard for the third time this summer. As the spring started we could not get enough moisture to make spots on the windshield and now it seems to rain for no reason. Thank you God, we really needed it. As I drove home the other day, I was looking at the empty pastures filled with lush grass and wondering what tourists to our state think of all the space with no livestock. I’m sure no one has explained to them that the pastures close to the place and with the best shelter are saved for fall and winter time. They don’t know that you can’t graze every pasture all the time, you’ve got to rotate pastures and move the stock to keep the grass growing enough to keep up. I’ve often thought that real estate companies should be required to give prospective “ranchette” buyers a brochure that explains carrying capacity of land. One cow takes 25 acres for a year and that horse you’ve got takes 30 acres. Yes, more than a cow. Do not expect to buy 40 acres and expect 5 horses to be able to live all year or even all summer on just that land. When you overgraze the land and fill it with horse douvers that does not mean you’re following green practices! Overgrazing creates erosion and allows all kind of weeds to start. Your pretty little ranchette becomes an eyesore and a detriment to the ecosystem of the area. They also have to realize they need some area to dispose of or compost their horse droppings. Poop doesn’t just go away overnight and it stinks. These same folks will come along and fuss because my cows are pooping near the creek. Newsflash folks, your horse poop washes away too and can, and eventually does, reach a water source. Ranchers and farmers are the best stewards of the land, not some nut spouting about “going green”. We live for this land and our environment, we want to keep it clean and safe for our future generations of family. If you want to know how to preserve the land, ask a country person! Saturday night, Harold and I drove to New Underwood to attend the 50th Wedding Anniversary celebration of Dennis and Janet Fernau. It was a wonderful party, great food and good dance music. The visiting and catching up with folks you have not seen or talked to for some time is the best part. Making it especially good was the fact that it was a happy occasion. So many times we are gathering for some sad reason. I’m sure I will miss someone’s name but some folks I saw there were, Sonja and Dave Gebhardt, John, Tammi, and Jessica Sletten, Carol Pratt, Arlyce Krause, Jim and Faye Huschle, Laina Huschle, Jesse and Lisa Huschle, Marcia Dutton, Amanda Dutton, Linda Haines, Irean Jordan, Bryan Carmichael, Kay and Jack Overland, Bob Nesland and Cathy Nesland, Arlen and Connie Carmichael and more. As we started for the car we stopped for a little more visiting. Bob Nesland got started telling stories of baseball days when the Faith team would come to Marcus and they’d play just for the fun of it. He claimed my husband, Harold threw a mean curve ball. I’d never heard that but I’ve been told he was quite a hitter too. Arlen Carmichael also had stories of the days when he went on the “custom combine” trail to Texas and north to North Dakota with Harold’s custom crew. I told him our girls might have to call and visit with him about dad in the old days! That’s the joy of South Dakota, someone remembers all the things we’ve done in our foolish younger days and they are willing to share it with our children whether we want them to or not. I have forgotten to include a note that John Heidler sent me about the Faith High School Rodeo Club of the 60’s. Unfortunately I must have deleted it. He reminded me that Keith Schuelke was a part of the rodeo club and one of the officers. Keith’s family
has also been an important part of the rodeo club over the ensuing years.  Thanks for reminding me John, my memory didn’t catch that one and there may be more. Michael Deichert came to Jim and Vonnie O'Dea's on Thursday and spent the night going with Grandpa Jim to Dean Wink's branding on Friday. Susan O'Dea came to her parents’ house Friday evening and spent the night. Saturday and Sunday, Michael was in the Regional Rodeo at Dupree. O'Deas went to watch both days and Michael and his partner won the Team Roping Average and Michael placed 2nd in the Steer Wrestling average. Dupree puts on a good rodeo. This was the tenth consecutive year that the Deichert grandkids have been in the high school rodeos and O'Deas have been there watching every year. What will they do next year? (Probably go just because they have a “RODEO HABIT?”) Lacey, Quirt and Rio Wondercheck and I visited my dad, Irvin at Philip last week. He was doing very well and was happy to see us and the little boys. Penny Herman of Monroe, Washington is here visiting at the Wonderchecks and the Waterlands for a couple weeks. Allen Waterland is gone to Minneapolis and Zumbroda, Minnesota visiting his sons, daughter- in-laws and grandchildren. Vacation Bible school will be held at the Marcus Church June 17-20. Starts at 9:00 A.M. and goes till noon. They will have a 10:30 snack and be home for lunch. Got any questions, call Bev Hudson, Kay King or Denise Weyer.
Central Meade County News
By Sandy Rhoden
June couldn't look any better in Central Meade County than it does at this time. Though we had several dry days, we received some moisture on Saturday afternoon. It would, however, take some terential rains to fill the dams in our area. Rural Neighbors will be held this Thursday at the Community Baptist Church.  Everyone is welcome. For more information one can contact Casey Brink or Donna Cammack. Vacation Bible School will be held next week, June 17-21 at the Community Baptist Church in Union Center. It will take place at 9:30-2:30 and those ages 5 on up through high school are welcome. Healthy snacks will be served, however, attendees will need to pack a cold lunch. On Wednesday night, there will be a special banquet in which grandparents, parents, and special people are invited to attend. A note will be sent with details as Wednesday may have a different schedule. 'Jesus is Coming Again' is the theme to this royal event and everyone is invited.  Larry Rhoden, as well as Gary and Amy Cammack, attended the Ag Chairs Summit in Vancouver, Canada last week. They discussed many of the pending agricultural issues and voted on resolutions. Larry chaired one of the sessions as he serves as vicepresident of SARL. Larry Rhoden met a sister of Jessie Levin, who is from Palm Springs, Fla. on his flight home. He  enjoyed a nice visit with her. She will spend time with Jessie and family for several days. LaVonne Remington is scheduled to go to Rochester, Minn. on June 12.  Please keep her in your prayers. A blood drive was held on Monday at the Community Baptist Church in Union Center.  We appreciate Donna Cammack and Carolyn Moreland for their service as they spend much time on the phone calling blood donors in order to meet the minimum amount of blood that they would like. Wes Labriers received a new face lift last week as their home has colored stucco now.  Also, much work has been done to Gary and Amy Cammack's entrance to their home.  Large rocks, like those at the church at Wes Labriers, have been moved in along with some other grooming additions. These additions can easily be seen as one travels on Highway 34 to Sturgis. I attended the Meade County Republican Women's meeting last Friday.  They spent much of their time planning for the 4th of July parade in Belle Fourche. Since this is the 75th anniversary of Nation Federation of Republican Women  they decided to have a float in the large parade. Any republican woman who is interested in participating in walking with or riding on the float is welcome!  Please  contact Monae Johnson at 342-8206 or Sandy Rhoden at 985-5461.

The Garden Gate
By Karen Englehart, Master Gardener SDSU Extension - Perkins Co.
Wake up the looks of your table and your taste buds with edible flowers that taste good as well as look good. There are several flowers that are edible, but these may be some you have not thought about as edible or maybe as flowers. Borage, thought of as a health food supplement, this annual grows 2 to 4 feet tall with purplish blue, star-shaped flowers that, according to a 16th century herbalist John Gerarde, “make the mind glad”. They like a sunny spot and are usually sown from seed and reseeds itself.  Borage adds a cucumber taste to salads, dips and cold soups.  Freeze the flowers in ice cubes for decorative cold drinks. In larger amounts it can act as a diuretic. Calendula, known to some as pot marigolds is an annual and was a favorite in medieval cooking. It grows up to 20 inches tall, has pale yellow to deep orange flowers. Again sow seeds directly in soil in a sunny location; it tolerates afternoon shade in hot temps.  This easy to grow plant often self-seeds as well.  It is sometimes referred to as poor man’s saffron and has a slightly bitters taste. Petals add color to
Yes - Edible flowers

scrambled eggs, cheeses and rice. Try the leaves & petals chopped in soups, salads and stews. Do not use this flower if you are allergic to rag weed, asters or other members of the Compositae family. Chamomile, this tiny daisy like flowers is known to most of us as being used for tea. It was immortalized in “the Tale of Peter Rabbit” when Mrs. Rabbit brewed a calming tea for her son Peter. This annual is a sun lover and is also grown from seed and easily reseeds itself to the point of being invasive.  Its sweet apple flavor and fragrance make excellent tea

Chives, another herb many of us have in our gardens and readily use the stems in many dishes. The lovely pink to lavender flowers have flavored meals for centuries.  Planting clumps is the best way to propagate chives, seeds germinate slowly.  Break apart the florets to add a mild onion flavor to dinner rolls, casseroles, salads, eggs, potatoes and butters. Next time we will add a few more to this list.  The garden is the poor man's apothecary. ~ German Proverb

to pick the volumes up, and $90 if you want them mailed to you. Casey shot another coyote Thursday. GF&P has killed five mountain lions, a female and two kittens in downtown Keystone, a male lion watching walkers and bicyclists along a park trail in the Angostura State Recreation Area, and another male in Hill City. Scott Larson with the USFW in Pierre sent me a press release announcing that the USFW proposes to return management and protection of wolves to the states. Mexican wolves in the Southwest will continue to be protected as endangered subspecies, but the states will manage the gray wolves. The comment period opens June 10 and I’ll let you know where to send your comments as soon as I know. Obama’s scandals keep building. NSA scans every email, every website, and every tweet, and records 3 billion phone calls per day, including both parties on the call, your location and the duration of the calls. They also have your credit card information. The IRS, NSA, EPA, DOJ, ATF, and OSHA spying on us is government overreach and reminds me of this: A major research institution has just announced the discovery of the heaviest element yet known to science. The new element has been named "Governmentium." Governmentium has one neutron, 12 assistant neutrons, 75 deputy neutrons, and 224 assistant deputy neutrons, giving it an Atomic mass of 311. These 311 particles are held together by forces called morons, which are surrounded by vast quantities of lepton-like particles called peons. Since Governmentium has no electrons, it is inert. However, it can be detected, as it impedes every reaction with which it comes into contact. A minute amount of Governmentium causes one reaction to take over 4 days to complete when it would normally take less

Grand River Roundup
By Betty Olson
We got 20 hundredths of rain Friday night, the grass is growing, the birds are singing and life is good! We branded the last bunch of late calves on Monday and that afternoon Taz and Bryce took a load of horses to Lemmon to the horse chiropractor. Tuesday, most of the community gathered to brand at Doug Doll’s. The Hackamore branding is the grand opening of the Harding County social season and fashion extravaganza. The chilly weather kind of put a damper on the fashion scene this year. Bryce rode the roundup wearing her footy pajamas and dang near froze to death. She explained that fashion was much more important than comfort! All the ropers sported the mandatory neckties and the wrestlers were dressed to the teeth, but by the time I showed up, most everyone had their finery covered with heavy jackets. The Big Boss Man Doug Doll hung tough in his tuxedo accessorized by a beautiful leather necktie topped by a silver concho that a friend hand-tooled for him. We see the tux every year, but that necktie was impressive. When I bragged it up to Doug, he told me he liked it so good that he is going to wear it to his son Clint’s wedding the end of this month! Tuesday was also the school board election in Harding County, so Reub and I went to Ralph to vote before I went to the Hackamore. Only one person had voted before we got there and the election turnout wasn’t real great. You’ve probably heard that the two new board members are Linda Gilbert and David Wickstrom. Being on the school board can be a thankless and frustrating job, but we wish you both the best! Harding County lost another old-timer on Tuesday. Buck Brengle passed away at Fort Meade after a long battle with cancer. Buck’s funeral will be 1:00 Thursday at the High Plains Western Heritage Center in Spearfish. Buck was one of eight children born to W.O. and Maude Brengle on the family ranch south of Buffalo. My Grandpa Clem White and W.O. were great friends (and fellow horse traders) and we used to hear some really fun stories about those two and Bill Marty’s uncle, Sam Marty. Buck and I enjoyed those old stories and I’m going to miss being able to laugh with him about those long ago days that were sometimes way too exciting! Casey, Bryce and Trig helped Bill Holt move cows Wednesday morning and then went to Buffalo that afternoon for the first Youth Series rodeo. It was nice outside so I got my flower beds weeded and worked up a sweat cleaning the yard. It sure cooled off that night though. Thursday morning our thermometer registered 34 degrees! Rep. Charlie Hoffman said they had a hard freeze at his ranch east of the Missouri near Eureka, but my tomatoes looked okay here, thank goodness. Friday the temperature soared to 82 degrees and I used the air conditioner! The Harding County history books are here! Fed-Ex brought them to Buffalo Thursday afternoon. We spent the afternoon packing books for shipment until we ran out of boxes. I brought mine home that night and haven’t been able to put it down since. A lot of them have been delivered and we will be working to get the rest out to all of you who ordered some. There are extras, so if you want one, send a check for $80 for the two volumes written to “Harding County history book” to Alice Holcomb, 13699 Harding Rd, Buffalo, SD 57720, if you plan
than a second. Governmentium has a normal half-life of 4 years; it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which a portion of the assistant neutrons and deputy neutrons exchange places. In fact, Governmentium's mass will actually increase over time, since each reorganization will cause more morons to become neutrons, forming isodopes. This characteristic of moron-promotion leads some scientists to believe that Governmentium is formed whenever morons reach a certain quantity in concentration. This hypothetical quantity is referred to as "Critical Morass." When catalyzed with money, Governmentium becomes Administratium, an element which radiates just as much energy, since it has 1/2 as many peons but twice as many morons.

Upcoming disease and pest problems
jury not only retards growth but also deforms the tree. Partially girdled whorls become so weakened that the tree breaks off. Permethrin contained in products such as Bonide Borer-Mine Killer and Gordon’s Bug-No-More can be used to control this pest. April is normally the time for chemical control but as late of a spring as we are having you should be able to kill the caterpillars in May by soaking the tree and especially the trunk before the temperature warms. When they start crawling about and begin to dig deep into the tree trunk they will be killed by the poison residue on the bark. Repeat the spray application in August to kill young caterpillars that hatch from the eggs. Diplodia Tip Blight a fungal disease that affects Austrian and Scotch that are growing under stressful conditions. The fungus is known to infect the younger and healthy needles of newly formed candles. It especially attacks the tips and needles of trees that have been weakened by stress from drought, injuries to roots, not enough nutrients in the soil, excessive amounts of shade, as well as injuries inflicted from weather and insects. It shows up as canker like injuries that ooze a resin that serves to infect other trees. The most evident sign of a pine tree being infected is if the trees have brown, stunted new shoots with short, brown needles. To control treat with a fungicide containing propiconazole or chlorothalanil before the bud sheaths have opened. See above under apple scab for products containing these active ingredients. My sources for this news release were the Dr. John Ball, SDDA Forest Health Specialist and USDA Forest Service General Technical Report Diseases of Trees of the Great Plains.

TREE FACTS
Wow, it rained! The watering that many have done over the last year or so has helped keep trees and shrubs alive but it is not as beneficial as rainwater. Now things are going to start happening with plant development, growth and depending on the humidity and temperatures associated with disease and pest problems. Following are some problems that may show up on a tree near you and how to control them. Apple scab is a fungal disease to trees and shrubs in the apple family. The disease is most noticeable in mid–summer as dull black or grey-brown lesions on the surface of tree leaves and fruit. The disease rarely kills its host, but can significantly reduce fruit yields and fruit quality. Young leaves are most susceptible to being infected within the first week after unfolding. Captan can be used to control apple scab on crabapple and apple trees. The first application should be done as the buds swell and open and do two or three more applications spaced 10 days apart. Other fungicides that can be used on ornamental crabapples only are propriconazole contained in such products as Bonide INFUSE Systemic Disease Control, Ferti-Lome Systemic Fungicide Liquid or chlorothalonil contained in such products as Bonide Fungionil, Garden Tech Daconil, Gordon’s Multi-Purpose Fungicide, Ortho Daconil just before the bud sheaths have opened. Zimmerman Pine Moth is a native insect that has become established throughout northwestern South Dakota. Ponderosa Pines in shelterbelts have been most commonly infested, but Austrian, Mugo, Jack and Scotch Pines are also reported as hosts. It infests the tips of branches and the main trunk feeding on the inner bark. Branches typically break at the crotch area where they join the trunk. Dead and dying branches, most often in the upper half of the tree, commonly indicate infestations. The first external symptoms of injury are popcorn-like pitch masses at wound sites. The pitch masses may reach golf-ball size and ultimately resemble clusters of small, pale grapes. The in-

May 2013 nearly doubles average number of child heatstroke deaths in vehicles
7 children die in hot cars in 4 states in 16-day period
ummer hasn't even arrived, and yet already this year seven children have died of heat stroke after being left in vehicles. KidsAndCars.org reports the following deaths in a 16-day period in May: •A girl, 5 months, died May 10 in El Paso, Texas, after her mother, a high school teacher, unknowingly left her behind in her SUV. •A boy, 4, died May 15 in  Transylvania County, N.C., after his grandmother forgot to drop him off at daycare. •A boy, 11 months, died May 16 in Miami, Fla., died after being left behind in his mother's car. •A girl, 1, died May 17 in Dallas, Texas, after her mother, an elementary school teacher,  unknowingly left her behind in her vehicle. •A boy, 1, died May 24 in Corpus Christi, Texas, after his uncle forgot to drop him off at daycare. •A boy, 18 months, and girl, 2 months died May 26 in Glen Allen, Va., when they were left in the car while the mother was at work. All of the children were left by a family member, and all but one child were under age 2. "The worst thing any parent or caregiver can do is think that this could never happen to them, that they are not capable of inadvertently leaving their child behind," says Janette Fennell, founder and president of KidsAndCars.org, the leading national nonprofit child safety organization working to prevent injuries and deaths of children in and around motor vehicles. "This can and does happen to the most loving, responsible and attentive parents." Since the group began tracking data, more than 675 children have died in these preventable tragedies. Safety Tips from KidsAndCars.org Remember the following "Look Before You Lock"  BE SAFE tips from KidsAndCars.org: Back seat - Put something in the back seat so you have to open the back door when leaving the vehicle - cell phone, employee badge, handbag, etc. Every child should be correctly restrained in the back seat. Stuffed animal - Move it from the car seat to the front seat to remind you when your baby is in the back seat. Ask your babysitter or childcare provider to call you within 10 minutes if your child hasn't arrived on time. Focus on driving - Avoid cell phone calls and texting while driving. Every time you park your vehicle open the back door to make sure no one has been left behind. Through the "Look Before You Lock" educational campaign, the first of its kind, KidsAndCars.org has distributed more than 300,000 information cards to birthing hospitals nationwide. KidsAndCars.org urges everyone to read "Fatal Distraction," Gene Weingarten's Pulitzer Prize-winning article in The Washington Post at http://r20.rs6.net/tn.jsp, which explains how these heartbreaking and preventable tragedies can happen to anyone. KidsAndCars.org fully supports the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration's (NHTSA's) new program, "Where's Baby, Look Before You Lock."

a faithful few tie and rope in Faith
Only a faithful few showed up to tie goats and breakaway rope on a cool, windy start to the first Ropes and Goats of the season on Tuesday, June 4. The determined 36 were happy to tune up their skills. Each contestant got three runs in every event. Morgan Ham recited the Bible verse of the day which was from Philippians 2:14 “Do everything without grumbling or arguing.” Comments were made that it was an easy verse to learn, but a hard one to obey. The high-money winner of the event was Katy Miller who won the T-Shirt with the Ropes and Goats theme: “Give it all you got, but give God the glory.” The next Ropes and Goats is June 11 at the Faith Stock Show and Rodeo grounds. Here are the results: Jr Jr Boys and Girls Goat Ribbon Snatching: Kaycee Groves 6.98 $35 Drew Harper 10.09 $21 Jess Harper 11.78 $14 Jr Girls Goat Tying Tayla Thorstenson 11.10 $50 Jr Boys Goat Tying Hugh Groves 39.84 $45 Sr Girls Goat Tying Tearnee Nelson 24.64 $80 Jr Girls Breakaway Roping Mikenzy Miller 17.95 $60 Jr Boys Breakaway Roping Harland Groves 3.71 (1 hd) $60 Sr Girls Breakawy Roping Katy Miller 2.68 (1 hd) $100 Open Girls Breakaway Roping Jacque Murray 6.39 (2 hd) $60

Stockgrowers leaders will also be discussing recent state policy issues and answering questions from producers
about predator control, oil and gas development issues, property tax policy, and other topics. Producers are encouraged to attend, share their thoughts and ask questions.
