The Faith Public/School Li-
brary hosted the Buy one, Get
One – Story Laboratory – Read-
ing Gives you Super Power Book
Fair.  The Faith High School Stu-
dent Council hosted the Family
Event after school last Monday,
March 11. 
Many youth and parents  vis-
ited the library. Everyone enjoyed
and participated in the science-
theme based book fair and activi-
ties. There was a mad science lab
where two high school students
demonstrated how to make lava
lamps, place a balloon on a stick
without popping it or losing air,
and making a small volcano.
Other activities included: Opera-
tion and Twister games, ring and
bean bag toss games, make a mad
scientist craft with white cotton
hair (that sticks up), googly eyes
and chenille stick for goggles;
guessing games and face paint-
ing/tattoo stickers.  Visitors also
enjoyed snacks, lemonade and
prizes!
Library Supervisor Angela Os-
trander commented, “It’s not just
about selling the books, but get-
ting people into our library and
exposing them to what services,
we have to offer.  The children
love to interact with the older stu-
dents and just have fun.” 
Thank you to everyone who
participated and supported the
book fair – literacy is important to
everyone!!!
Book Fair at the Faith
Library – a huge success!
Faith voters will be going to
the polls on Tuesday, April 9th to
cast their votes for mayor and
council members.
Incumbent Mayor Glen Haines
is being opposed by Peggy Riley
for the two year term.
Glen Haines is well known to
our community, he has lived here
basically all his life. He grew up
on the Haines ranch west of town.
Four generations of Haines’ have
attended the Faith School. He is
a three-generation co-owner of
Haines Trucking LLC, currently
with his son Justin. He began
trucking with his dad, Willard,
about 45 years ago. Glen has been
involved in Jaycees, Lions Club,
Faith Chamber of Commerce,
Faith Stock Show Assn., and is on
the Faith Volunteer Fire Dept.
and Faith Ambulance. He has
served as Faith’s mayor for the
past dozen years.
Glen feels that with his busi-
ness background and his terms as
mayor, he has a solid understand-
ing of how local, county and state
government works. As a business
owner, he has a special interest in
the betterment of our community.
Haines has attended many
meetings on the county and state
level which has given him a good
insight as to how other communi-
ties operate.
The city has faced some tough
times but they have always been
able to pull through. The city’s
power and water rates have had
to increase over the years but it’s
just good business to pass that in-
crease along to their customers.
“I’m proud of our town and all
we’ve accomplished over the
years. We have a great commu-
nity center, public safety build-
ing, and a clean, progressive
town,” Haines stated. He added
that he hopes to be able to con-
tinue with this progress.
Peggy Riley is also familiar to
our community. Peggy grew up on
the family ranch south of Faith,
the daughter of Charles and
Verna Steen. She graduated from
Faith High School and received
her Bachelor of Science in Educa-
tion from BHSU. She joined the
Mayoral candiates share their thoughts
By Loretta Passolt
US Air Force in 1976 and served
6 years of active duty, retiring
after 17 years as a reservist. Dur-
ing her Air Force career she
worked for Lockheed in Austin,
TX, Martin Marietta in Littleton
and Colorado Springs, CO., both
defense contractors. Later she
worked for Homeland Security at
Olathe, KS and also PCI who sup-
plies materials for nuclear power
plants.
While in the Air Force she
served in Crete, Greece; Home-
stead, Fla.; and Hahn, Germany.
She traveled all over Europe and
enjoyed her time in the Air Force.
Peggy moved back home to Faith
in August 2011, which she shares
with her dogs and cats, and her 2
brothers when they are here.
Peggy was elected to the city
council last April so has had a lit-
tle experience with the operation
of the city.
Peggy is running for mayor of
Faith because she sees areas
where the city could improve.
Peggy said, “I would like to en-
courage more involvement from
all the citizens of Faith, young or
old, town or country.” “We also
need to find ways to keep jobs in
town or bring them back to town,”
she added.
Peggy is very passionate about
getting Faith to be what it was
when she was growing up here.
Peggy said, “I would like to do
more with our local veterans, too,
to educate them on the benefits
they’ve earned and deserve.”
I was unable to get in contact
with some of those running for
council seats so hopefully will
have it next week.
Discussion got so heated in the
executive session at the March
19th meeting of the Faith City
Council that two members
walked out. There were raised
voices but you couldn’t hear what
was being discussed.
Following the approval of min-
utes and claims, committee re-
ports were given. Donn Dupper
said that with the recent water
leak he had ordered some parts
for future use, including meters.
Residents north of town are hav-
ing problems with their water,
they have pressure but no vol-
ume. They probably have air in
the line, so the crew will be work-
ing on that. Donn also looked over
the drainage situation at the fair-
grounds and thought if they ran a
20’ curb and valley and veer it to
the east that it should take care
of the problem. The landfill in-
spector will be here this Thursday
(March 21st).
While Donn was present they
discussed a new pit at the landfill.
He said they burned the tree pit
and there is no place to go with
those items, and the other pit is
about full. He figured they would
need to remove about 2600+
yards of dirt for a new one. It
should run around $6,000, maybe

Ilma G. Gabriel, 90, of rural
Faith, died on Sunday, March 17,

On November 11, 1947, Ilma
married Frank Allen Gabriel in
Gordon, Nebraska. They moved
to their ranch west of Faith in
southern Perkins County that
they purchased in 1952. Frank
and Ilma both lived out their lives
on the ranch that they raised 4
kids and 4 grandkids on, along
with beef cattle and quarter
horses.
Ilma was known to everyone as
“Grandma.” She was a very ac-

On Monday, April 1, the first
phase of a 9-mile reconstruction
project will begin in the east-
bound lanes of Interstate 90 near
Spearfish, according to the South
Dakota Department of Trans-

Traffic will be reduced to one-
lane in each direction and placed
head-to-head in the westbound
lanes between Exits 10 and 14
(mile markers 9 to 15), with a 14-
foot width restriction.
Motorists are asked to watch
for slowing traffic, merging lanes,

duced to 55 mph, and motorists
are reminded that fines are dou-
bled in work zones.
The interim completion date

The prime contractor on the
$12.4 million project is Heavy
Constructors Inc. of Rapid City.

Marcus News
By Vicky Waterland
Central Meade County News
By Sandy Rhoden
The weekend weather stayed
cold, as did the previous week.
This made for ranchers who are
calving checking more often and
having to move calves to barns or
protected areas. The week previ-
ously, with dry, warmer tempera-
tures made for much easier
calving.
Reggie Rhoden was named to
the LMC Boys Basketball All
Conference Team. Congratual-
tions to him and Cody Trainor for
being selected. Reggie Rhoden is
the son of Larry and Sandy Rho-
den. Cody is the grandson of
Danny and Bobbi Arneson of En-
ning. The Faith Longhorns ended
with a loss to only one team, the
Dupree Tigers. Dupree went on to
earn 3rd place at the State B boys
basketball tournament in Ab-
erdeen.
Schools will be off for Good Fri-
day this week and most have
Easter Monday off as well. Sun-
rise Service on Easter morning,
March 31, will be on the hill at
John and Sylvia Rhodens. One
may go up Ball Park Road and
head east to John's residence,
then turn west of the tree patch
and follow the trail to the hill
with the cross. The service by
campfire is open to anyone who
wishes to attend and it begins at
sunrise, 6:45 am. There will be a
Prayer and Praise on Friday
night, Good Friday, at 7:00 at
the Community Baptist Church
in Union Center. Everyone is wel-
come.
The senior class from Faith
spent the weekend in Rapid City
for their senior trip. They took
part in many activities which in-
cluded a Rush game on Saturday
night. With busy schedules the
class decided to stay close to home
to cut back on time spent travel-
ing.
The Union Center track team's
first scheduled meet was for
Tuesday, March 26. Tempera-
tures have not been exactly ideal
for track meets so they likely
passed on the Earlybird Meet at
Douglas.
Vonda Jensen asked for
friends and relatives to get her
sister Nunny Tysdal's new ad-
dress.  Nunny has moved to a
nursing home facilities from an
assisted living home so her new
address is: %Elwood Care Center,
607 Smith Ave., PO Box 315, El-
wood, Nebraska 68937. If you'd
like to phone her the number is 1-
308-785-3302.  Sure she would
enjoy hearing from you.
Diane Fees went to Pierre on
Tuesday on business while Faye
Fees went into Faith that after-
noon for a therapy appointment
and to visit her friend Gladys Pe-
terson.
Kay Ingalls went to Union
Center for an appointment on
Tuesday afternoon.
Benjamin Brayfield stopped
for information and photos for the
Rapid City Journal on Wednes-
day and stayed for dinner. That
evening, Dwayne and Zona at-
tended the  Leadership Training
for Christ dress rehearsal at the
Northern Hills Church of Christ.
Six of the grandkids are old
enough to participate and another
five just being cute.
Faye Fees called on Emily
Cowles at her home on Wednes-
day and stopped to visit with Wal-
ter and Diane for bit, also.
John and Carmen Heidler got
some company on Wednesday
that doesn't stop by very often.
Austin Keffeler came in the morn-
ing and stayed and visited and
had dinner.  OJ came down to
visit  a bit and had dinner, also.
Thursday, Carmen had several
appointments in Rapid City so
seemed like a long day. Then Fri-
day, Heidler's went to Spearfish
for an anniversary open house for
Norman and McGee Vansickel.
Mostly family and neighbors but
was extra nice that Corky and his
family had come to SD for a long
weekend. They went from Spear-
fish to Faith to spend some time
with Dorothy Heidler on Friday
evening and part of Saturday and
then came out to John and Car-
men's Saturday evening in time
for supper.  OJ and Leah came
down to have supper also so it
was nice to have so much family
here at one time for a little while.
Sunday morning, Corky's crew
started loading up to take off mid
morning. Short visit, but a good
one.
Bernice Lemmel said not much
activity at their house this week.
They did go to Faith one day and
Ronny came out to the ranch on
Sunday to help get the sheds
ready for lambing.  Shearing will
take place this coming weekend,
lambing short behind that.
Glenn, Margaret and Dan Fo-
gelman went to Faith on Friday
for licenses and other shopping.
Rod and Tracy Ingalls went to
Rapid City for an appointment
and shopping on Friday.  Was not
a very nice day and Rapid City
got some good snow. We got about
2.5 inches that day also.  Shelby
Cammack came home with them
to spend the weekend.
Tom Tifft stopped by for a visit
at the Dwayne Vig ranch on Sat-
urday.
Marie Ingalls Lambing is
spending a few day visiting her
folks, Hugh and Eleanor Ingalls.
She visited her sister Beth
Hotchkiss and family on Sunday
afternoon.
Looking forward to spring this
week and a blessed Easter week-
end.

Last weekend Amy Deichert
won the goat tying at the Gillette
College Rodeo. Later in the week,
Amy was named Athlete of the
Week at the Chadron State Col-
lege where she is in her sopho-
more year in Elementary and
Special Education. Congratula-
tions Amy! Amy sent a paper to
grandpa and grandma with a pic-
ture and story of her achieve-
ments.
There’s not a day that goes by
when I don’t think of the brave
men and women who voluntarily
put themselves in harm’s way to
defend the values that our coun-
try holds so dear. We have both a
duty and an obligation to ensure
that our armed forces are fully
equipped both while they are ac-
tively serving and after they re-
turn home to their families and
communities.
Over 72,000 veterans call
South Dakota home and it is be-
cause of these patriots that South
Dakotans can continue to wake
up in the greatest nation in the
world. That’s why it is so impor-
tant to treat our veterans with
the honor and respect they de-
serve. I have and continue to sup-
port legislation that assists
veterans in transitioning back to
civilian life by providing them
with quality health care, educa-
tion assistance and job develop-
ment skills.
I was proud to recently co-
sponsor H.R. 569, the Veterans’
Compensation Cost-of-Living Ad-
justment (COLA) Act. This bill
will give qualified disabled veter-
ans and their dependents an an-
nual COLA starting at the end of
this year. I heard from many con-
stituents across the state about
the importance of this legislation
and I am glad to lend my support
to this bill for our combat veter-
ans.
As you may know, folks who
serve for twenty years in the Na-
tional Guard are not recognized
as veterans. So as a way to honor
those who have dedicated many
years in service to our National
Guard, I have cosponsored a bi-
partisan bill which would give
these men and women the hon-
orary status of veteran. During
the 112th Congress, my col-
leagues in the House and I passed
similar legislation and I am proud
to continue to support this effort.
We must keep our nation’s he-
roes a top priority, and I intend to
continue doing just that in Con-
gress. My office recently assisted
a veteran named Edgar who was
having difficulty receiving a mili-
tary medal. We were able to con-
tact multiple departments on his
behalf and were able to get Edgar
the medal he deserved. If you
know of a veteran who requires
assistance with medals or with
benefit claims, please contact one
of my offices so we can help.
Those needing assistance should
visit my website at

information or call one of my of-
fices. Contact information is

The South Dakota State Li-
brary Braille and Talking Book
Program has established an audio
book depository at Faith
Public/School Library.
The depository is available to
anyone who has a visual impair-
ment that prevents them from
seeing print, a physical disability
that prevents holding materials
and/or turning the pages, or a
learning disability caused by an
organic dysfunction.
In order to receive the service,
individuals must register with
the State Library Braille and
Talking Book Program. Registra-
tion materials are available at the
Faith Library.
Once registered, an individual
will receive his or her own audio
book player. Books can be mailed
directly to a participant’s home,
or they can be checked out at the
library. There is no charge for this
service.
Talking books are now avail-
able on digital cartridges as well
as cassettes. With this change,
not only can digital books be
mailed directly to participants,
but those who have access to the
Internet can view a catalog of dig-
ital books. From this catalog, par-
ticipants can select a book they
want to read, download the book
to a USB standard flash drive,
and listen to the book on the dig-
ital player.
If a participant does not have
access to the Internet, staff at the
library can assist in downloading
books. All a participant needs is a
USB standard flash drive.

less. Council approved advertis-
ing for bids to be opened at the
second meeting in April, with
work to be done by June 1,
weather permitting. In the mean-
time, the city crew will dig a tem-
porary pit to get by.
Donn also reported that the
bank wants fiber optic for a se-
cure link to their services. They
would need to bore about 200’ in
the alley. They would also need to
trench between the bank and sen-
ior center. He got quotes from
several places and Ralph Mc-
Quirk from Philip was the cheap-
est and quickest. The others
wouldn’t be availabe until May 1
and the bank would like it by
April 1. Council approved getting
McQuirk to do the boring.
Cindy Frankfurth had no re-
port for the ambulance. Hoss e-
mailed his police report to the
office. He will be back on duty to-
morrow (20th) after his knee sur-
gery.
Debbie reported that Karen
Miller has already asked the
Stock Show Assn. to use the fair-
grounds for Ropes and Goats on
Wednesday nights this summer.
They will be under their insur-
ance. Council was in agreement.
Debbie also said that Rusty
Foster had given them a mounted
Longhorn steer to hang in the
gym if they wanted to. Mayor
Haines said they had looked the
area over and decided the best
place would be above the doors as
you come in from the concession
area. They will have to do a little
rearranging of the track banners.
Council gave the go-ahead.
Hours for the Faith Informa-
tion Center were discussed. They
advertised them from 9 am-3 pm
but Debbie wondered if they could
change it to 8 with a half hour
lunch. The city office gets phone
calls for news items at that time
so it would free up the city girls.
Council approved the change in
hours.
Resolution #03-19-13-01 for
transfer of funds was approved.
Debbie explained that the last
time they had the reading of Or-
dinance #303 for the cable fran-
chise it was mislabeled. It stated
2nd Reading and should have
been 1st Reading. Council ap-
proved the 2nd Reading at this
time.
The 2nd reading of Ordinance
#304 for Temporary Liquor Li-
censes was discussed at length.
Debbie explained that the Stock
Show Assn. would like to see the
City increase the number of
liquor licenses for organizations
from 3 to at least 6. This is the
first time that municipalities can
establish their own number of
temporary liquor licenses they
want to issue to an organization
in a year. Legislature and the
Governor passed this law this last
session. Atty. Bogue explained
that these temporary licenses are
for civic, educational, charitable,
veterans organizations, etc. and
has to be for a special event.
There aren’t as many charitable
organizations and special events,
especially in a small community,
that three wouldn’t be enough.
Council determines if the event
qualifies. The licenses cannot be
used beyond the date(s) of the
event and 15 days is the limit.
Bogue suggested they set it at 3
and then in a year they could ad-
just it if needed. Mayor Haines
understood they had to set the
price per day, which they have at
$25. Stock Show President Colt
Haines appeared at this time and
said they would like to have the
number of licenses increased to 5.
They are considering another pos-
sible event and may need an-
other. Counncilmember Riley
thought there were more organi-
zations in town that should have
access to the licenses. She said
Stock Show wasn’t a civic organi-
zation, so what are they? Bogue
explained that any charitable en-
tity could get up to three licenses
in a year. It doesn’t mean there
aren’t any more available. The li-
censes can be referred 20 days
after they are published, then
they will become law. Mayor
Haines wanted council to be sure
three was enough. Council de-
cided to leave the number at
three.
Council retired into a heated
executive session at 7:30 for about
30 minutes of legal issues.
Bogue explained that the job
descriptions can be looked over
and discussed at the next meet-
ing.
Discussion was held on the
possible influx of people from the
Keystone XL Pipeline and the
availability of housing. There are
supposed to be around 60 families
coming here. There are several
areas where campers can be set.
Council discussed water and
sewer connections, and spacing
between campers for fire safety.
Some areas are grandfathered in
so changes usually can’t be made.
There will be much more discus-
sion on this at future meetings.
Council retired into executive
session at 8:30 for possible litiga-
tion.

SDSU Extension is helping re-
cruit South Dakotans to volun-
teer for a national network of
volunteer precipitation observers,
or CoCoRaHS (Community Col-
laborative Rain Hail & Snow Net-
work) to track precipitation
events across South Dakota, re-
ported State Climatologist and
CoCoRaHS State Coordinator,
Dennis Todey.
"These are everyday people
who enjoy measuring precipita-
tion and are willing to report that
on the internet," he says, of the
volunteers who measure and re-
port after rain, hail and snow
events.
Despite today's automated
technology, Todey believes local
reporting is still essential in
tracking the variability of rain-
fall.
"It's a huge benefit to us to
have people across the state who
monitor precipitation. The
biggest variability in weather
across South Dakota is how pre-
cipitation differs from place to
place. Even with all the technol-
ogy we have, we really need to
have on-ground measurements
all across the state to tell us what
is really happening on the
ground," he said. "Where we have
heavy rain events, like flood
events, the National Weather
Service has issued flash flood
warnings based on people's re-
ports on how much rain fall there
was," he said.
Laura Edwards, SDSU Exten-
sion Climate Field Specialist, is
the state CoCoRaHS Coordinator.
She says volunteer reports can
also be useful in documenting
drought conditions.
"If people can tell us how many
days they've gone without rain-
fall, it helps us document drought
conditions and better support dis-
aster declaration because of
drought," she said.
Edwards will work directly
with observers to train them and
answer any questions on report-
ing they may have; how to use the
gauge or how to use the website.
She adds that becoming a Co-
CoRaHS volunteer may be a great
fit for many of the state's agricul-
ture producers.
"Because all the CoCoRaHS re-
ports are maintained online for
free, this can ease farmer's
recordkeeping. And, all of their
old reports are accessible at any
time," Edwards said. "This makes
it easy to go back and look at past
months/seasons/years of precipi-
tation reports. If producers partic-
ipate on a regular basis, it may be
easier to demonstrate if a partic-
ular location is wetter/drier than
other areas."
Volunteers who are interested
in joining the CoCoRaHS network
must be willing to take daily pre-
cipitation readings between 6
a.m. and 9 a.m. and report the
events on-line or by phone. They
are asked to use a standard 4-
inch diameter rain gauge and will
receive a small bit of training.
A March Madness recruiting
campaign is now underway. To
learn more visit
www.cocorahs.org or contact
Todey at (605) 688-5678.

Weather reporting volunteers needed
Last Wednesday was the first
day of Spring and it was a very
chilly, windy day. We actually re-
ceived snow last week! It started
Thursday night around 8:00 and
I’d say we had about 3” on the
ground when we woke up Friday
morning. We got about another
half inch Sunday night. Temper-
atures were mostly in the 30s last
week.
A much-belated Welcome
Home Vietnam Veterans this Sat-
urday, March 3oth. Gov. Daau-
gard has dedicated March 30th as
Welcome Home Vietnam Veter-
ans Day in South Dakota. This is
way overdue! I know there are
many in our area who served in
Vietnam and were never recog-
nized and properly welcomed
home. There were several in my
class alone who served over there.
Ones I can think of are Jim But-
ler, Clifford McGinnis, Larry
Molitor, Carl Peterson, Roy Price
and Leonard Ritter. I think Roger
Overacker was in too, but not cer-
tain of that. There are some from
other classes who I can’t remem-
ber who also served. Faith lost
one soldier in action over there,
Earl Overacker. His name is on
the Vietnam War Memorial in
Pierre. Thank you to all those
who served! And Welcome Home,
belatedly!!
Reed Henschel is home from
the hospital. He had a viral infec-
tion but is doing much better.
Tower Stool was in a recent Na-
tional Geographic magazine. One
of their reporters saw their mural
of Devils Tower and thought it
was unique. The mural was
painted by Norman Blue Arm.
Peggy Riley attended the
American Legion District meeting
in Sturgis last week. She said she
was the only woman veteran in
attendance.
Gifted area singers presented
the Lenten/Easter story in song
and scriptures on Sunday aftern-
boon at the Bethel Lutheran
Church in Faith. Teddi Carlson,
of Bison, directed and Cheryl
Cowles, Opal, accompanied. The
audience appreciated the beauti-
ful hymns and special numbers.
The Bethel ladies hosted the
lunch and fellowship following
the program. This program has
been given annually on Palm
Sunday, since 1987, with the ex-
ception of one year, and continues
to be the highlight of the Easter
season.
Wayne and Karen Sletten,
Rapid City, attended the beauti-
ful Easter cantata on Sunday.
The Top Hand 4-H Club is
sponsoring the annual Easter Egg
Hunt. The hunt, for kids up to age
12, will be held this Saturday
moring at 10:00 at the City Park.
The United Methodist Church
will be having an Easter Sunrise
Service this Sunday, March 31st
at 6:45. The service will be held
by the club house at Durkee Lake.
Everyone is welcome to attend.
Congratulations to Hugh
Groves for qualifying for the State
Civic Oration Contest to be held
April 26th. The region competi-
tion was held at St. Thomas More
last week and he received third
place so that advances him to the
state competition.
The FHS senior class took
their class trip over the weekend.
They were seen at the Rush game
Saturday night.
School students and staff will
have a four and a half day vaca-
tion for Easter. School dismisses
at 1:00 this Thursday and re-
sumes Tuesday, April 2nd.
Track practice started last
week. The first meet for the ath-
letes will be in Mobridge on
Thursday, April 4th. Have a good
season!
Hope everyone has a nice
Easter!

Read the Legals
There was not quite enough
support by South Dakota Sena-
tors to overturn the Governor’s
veto of providing certain research
money to SDSU. The House also
upheld two line-item vetoes is-
sued by the Governor.
Legislators considered the ve-
toes during the final day of the
2013 South Dakota Legislative
session on March 25.
SB115 would have increased
the commercial fertilizer inspec-
tion fee to pay for fertilizer-re-
lated research and created the
Nutrient Research Education
Council.
Gov. Dennis Daugaard, in issu-
ing the veto, said this was a new
tax, which he found “particularly
objectionable,” because the tax
“benefits a government agency--
the Agricultural Experiment Sta-
tion--that is already receiving an
ongoing increase of more than 10
percent and an increase of 8 new
full-time equivalent state employ-
ees.”
Senator Shantel Krebs, R-Ren-
ner, had argued for overturning
the veto because the extra 15-
cents would provide “localized re-
search data that enables the U.S.
Department of Ag, specifically the
Natural Resource Conservation
Service, to adopt national nutri-
ent management practices that
are specific to South Dakota con-
ditions… our producers, our
growers need to know what those
standards should be.”
Sen. Jason Frerichs, D-Wilmot,
said the bill provided “targeted
research dollars to our land grant
university.”
Sen. Corey Brown, R-Gettys-
burg, said he found it “little bit
awkward for me to come out in
opposition to this bill,” since he
represents a very rural district.
However, he said the bill was de-
signed to cover the cost of a par-
ticular program, and a tax is
generally broader in concept.
Sen. Larry Tidemann, R-
Brookings, said he thought there
was value in having public re-
search, rather than leaving the
research to the commercial pro-
ducers of fertilizer. It was noted
that other agriculture states are
also doing the research for their
particular conditions, which this
was designed to do for South
Dakota.
Daugaard said he had recom-
mended a $1 million increase in
his FY14 budget proposal, which
the Legislature adopted and
added yet another $500 thousand
in one-time funding. This more
than fully restored the FY12 gen-
eral fund cuts, he said.
“Beyond these dollars, federal
funds and other funds spending
has increased almost 16 percent
over pre-cut levels,” said Dau-
gaard. “The Agricultural Experi-
ment Station is one of the few
programs in state government
that has seen its funding restored
fully.”
Veto override proponents gar-
nered 22 votes in favor, however
that was not enough for the two-
thirds needed and Daugaard’s
veto stood.
The House agreed with the
Governor’s assessment of portions
of two bills, HB1137 and HB1185,
that had estimated fall enroll-
ment of technical schools and K-
12 for certain funding using 2012,
rather than 2013. Daugaard said
he did not disagree with the Leg-
islature’s intent to distribute
money to education. “The Legisla-
ture can use a letter of intent to
clarify its intention to distribute
the technical institute funding ac-
cording to the funding formula,
and the K-12 funding according to
the FY2013 actual student FTE,”
said Daugaard, adding, “It is my
intention to instruct that these
funds be distributed according to
the letter of intent.”
Both the Senate and the House
heard the final gavel of the 2013
session shortly after noon.

The annual South Dakota
Mosquito Control – West Nile
Virus Conference will be held
April 9 at the AmericInn Confer-
ence Center in Ft. Pierre. Regis-
tration starts at 9:30 a.m. and the
event begins at 10 a.m.
In 2012, South Dakota experi-
enced its worst West Nile season
since 2007 with WNV detections
in 48 counties.  There were 203
human cases reported, including
three deaths. Surveillance details
about the season can be found
atdoh.sd.gov/WestNile/PDF/Final
2012.pdf. Although West Nile ac-
tivity is difficult to predict, it is
expected to threaten South
Dakota for the foreseeable fu-
ture. 
Janet McAllister, CDC Ento-
mologist, Division of Vector-
Borne Diseases, is the keynote
speaker. Dr. McAllister is one of
the country’s leading experts on
mosquito control. Conference top-
ics will include practical opera-
tions; community needs of source
reduction; larviciding, surveil-
lance, and adulticiding; mosquito
public relations; and a South
Dakota West Nile status update.
The conference is open to any-
one doing community mosquito
control or in municipal, tribal,
county or state governmental
leadership. There is no registra-
tion fee.
Strengthening the state’s re-
sponse to current and emerging
public health threats is one goal of
the department’s Health 2020 ini-
tiative.

According to the calendar,
spring arrived this past Wednes-
day. Did anybody notice? When I
checked our thermometer at 5:00
Wednesday morning, it registered
four degrees below zero, but
spring kicked in a little later that
day because the temp shot up to
44 degrees by mid afternoon.
That was the warmest tempera-
ture for the whole week and most
days it stayed below freezing with
a cold wind. Sure makes for mis-
erable calving weather. The guys
have been bringing the cows that
are about to calve into the lot at
night, but we’re still going to have
a few calves with really short
ears.
The bucks got out for a couple
hours last fall so weíll start lamb-
ing a lot earlier than we planned.
They bagged the ewes last week
and found about 50 that should
start to pop Monday or Tuesday,
so the lambing shed will be full
sooner than expected. Ah, spring!
We almost lost our last two
chickens to a big old coon Thurs-
day morning. Reub went outside
to check the cows in the dark
about 4:00 that morning and
heard the rooster squawking. He
headed toward the noise just in
time to see the coon dive under
the woodpile. Reub grabbed the
rifle and took after the coon in the
dark on the Kobuta. It was hard
to see and the coon headed under
the fence and got away. Reub
thought both chickens were dead,
but the next day the hen showed
up in the yard. That night when I
went to lock her in the chicken
coop, there was the rooster. He’s
limping bad and dragging one
wing, but he seems to get a little
better every day. The hen even
started to lay an egg a day for us
since they were attacked. She
must have really appreciated
Reub coming to their rescue!
I haven’t been enjoying the
outdoors much this week. I’ve got
the worst cold I’ve ever had in my
life and I haven’t even dared go to
Dickinson to meet our new grand-
baby till I get over this. I missed
the quarterly board meeting at
the High Plains Western Her-
itage Center in Spearfish on
Tuesday and church on Wednes-
day, but hopefully I’m over the
worst of whatever ails me.
I’m writing this early because
I’m hoping to get healed up
enough to make it to Pierre for
Veto Day on Monday. The gover-
nor vetoed one bill and did a line
item veto on two others that we
will have to deal with. I got
elected to the Executive Board
and all the members will meet
Monday morning at 8:00 central
time to elect officers, so I’ll have
to drive down on Sunday.
Chuck Spangler gave us a
scare Wednesday. He wasn’t feel-
ing good so he went to the clinic
in Bison. They thought he had
pneumonia and sent a prescrip-
tion with Chuck for the pharmacy
in Hettinger. Chuck went to Het-
tinger to get his medication and
headed home later that day. He
wasn’t too far south of Hettinger
when he began having really bad
chest pain. He called his wife and
she told him to turn around and
head back to the hospital where
the doctors discovered he was
having a heart attack. Thursday
morning he was airlifted to Bis-
marck where he had a stint put
in. His sister, Lois Eggebo, said
he’s doing pretty well now and the
surgeon was going to release him
by Sunday. Please keep Chuck in
your prayers.
I got a nice letter from Marie
Spoering this week letting me
know that she had a great grand-
son born on March 1st, which just
happened to be her 85th birthday!
Little Brady William was born to
her granddaughter Mandy
(Sander) and Wade Ericcson in
Gillette, Wyoming.
Tom and Briana Fabris also
have a new baby. Little Pepper
Katherine was born March 21st
in Whitewood, weighing 6 lb. 7oz.
and 19 inches long. And if she
looks anything like her picture on
Facebook, she is a little cutie pie!
Getting to report on the new
babies in the neighborhood is way
more fun than writing about fu-
nerals, but we lost an old friend
and neighbor this week. Ilma
(Hanna) Gabriel was 90 when she
passed away last Sunday. Ilma
was a horse woman, a talented
quilter, and a very caring little
lady that leaves a big hole in the
fabric of our community.
Immanuel Lutheran Church at
Zeona was packed full of friends
and neighbors when we gathered
to bid goodbye to Ilma on Friday.
Former SD Sec. of Agriculture
Larry Gabriel is Ilma’s brother-
in-law and we had a short visit
over lunch following the funeral.
Ilma’s old friends Helen Marty,
Vera Dutton, Rosemary Seymour,
and Ruby Vandenberg were
Ilma’s honorary casket bearers
and Helen Marty came up from
Spearfish to bring her sister Max-
ine Marty to the funeral. It’s too
bad that funerals are the majority
of our social gatherings anymore.
Our sympathy goes out to Ilma’s
family.
Saturday is prom night at
Harding County High School.
Hopefully the weather warms up
a little and the kids have a nice
Grand River Roundup
By Betty Olson
evening. I’ll report on that next
week.
With all the happy parents and
grandparents in the community
this week, I want to leave you
with a grandma story:
A second grader came home
from school and said to her grand-
mother, "Grandma, guess what?
We learned how to make babies
today."
The grandmother, more than a
little surprised, tried to keep her
cool even though she was worried
what the child may have been
told.
"That's interesting," she said,
"How do you make babies?"
"It's simple," replied the girl.
"You just change 'y' to 'i' and add
'es'!
Prom is a special night for
teens and parents.  Hundreds of
dollars − from corsage to tuxedo
– go into making this evening a
special one.
Sadly, every year Americans
hear reports of prom-goers get-
ting into car accidents as a result
of drinking and driving. Addition-
ally, accidents can happen any
time students are distracted, even
for just a few seconds. Prom is a
good time to revisit a few easy-to-
follow tips to keep this special
night safe for your teen.
For teens:
· Buckle up and make sure
everyone in the car does, too.
· Concentrate and drive defen-
sively. If you’re the driver, it’s up
to you to keep your passengers
safe.
· Understand that the average
vehicle weighs 3,000 pounds. It
may be easy to drive, but it's still
a heavy hunk of metal that YOU
need to control.
· Never allow someone who
has been drinking to drive. It's
not worth the risk to your life!
·  Remember that tired drivers
are dangerous, too. Post-prom
parties are a great way to have
fun…but, if you're barely awake,
you shouldn't be behind the
wheel.
·  Call home to get a ride. No
matter what time it is, parents
would rather pick you up than
have you drive in a dangerous sit-
uation.
· Take your cell phone to prom
so you have one in case of emer-
gency, but, NEVER text and
drive!  Pull over BEFORE picking
up the phone.
And for parents:
·  Make sure you know where
your teen is going to be during the
dance and at the after-prom par-
ties.  Know WHO your teen is
spending the evening with.
·  Don't allow too many prom-
goers into one vehicle. (More pas-
sengers mean more distractions.)
Keep this prom safe on the
highway for your teen and all
their friends.

Did you know that during a
typical prom weekend nearly half
of all teen traffic deaths are alco-
hol related? These tragic deaths,
the pain of those who are injured,
and the grief of parents, friends,
and loved ones are preventable. 
Before the celebrations begin,
take a few minutes to talk with
your teen about the dangers of
mixing alcohol with prom fun.
What is alcohol? Alcohol is a
depressant that slows down body
functions. Alcohol depresses
nerves that control involuntary
actions such as breathing and the
gag reflex, which prevents chok-
ing. It also affects judgment, coor-
dination, response and reaction
time. Even small amounts of alco-
hol impede the ability to function
normally and make good deci-
sions.
A person’s blood alcohol con-
centration can continue to rise
even while he or she is passed
out.  After someone stops drink-
ing, alcohol in the stomach and
intestine continues to enter the
blood stream and circulate
throughout the body. A person
who appears to be sleeping it off
may be in real danger.

Wheelchair Discrimination
Several weeks ago I had the
honor of helping a close friend of
mine, who sometimes requires a
wheelchair, to tour around a his-
toric town viewing the wonderful
sites, and enjoying museums of
art and of history. It was an en-
lightening experience for me.
Prior to this, I had been only
vaguely aware of how public bath-
rooms had changed to make one
stall wider, and how curbs had
been cut down, which I had no-
ticed made it is easier for kids on
tricycles.
Pushing him around in a
wheelchair, I noted every curb
The Prairie Doc Perspective

with and without a disability en-
trance. I noticed every building
with steps and no elevator. I no-
ticed every home that had no way
for a wheelchair bound person to
easily enter. Too often the doors
were very narrow, the hallways
un-maneuverable, the sidewalks
too cracked or bumpy. More than
once we were stopped dead in our
tracks as the wheels caught in
crack or rut, which would just
about thrust my friend out of the
wheelchair, and onto the ground.
Up to this time I truly hadn’t rec-
ognized the extent that we, as a
society, discriminate against peo-
ple with mobility problems.
Before this, I was dimly aware
of the Americans With Disabili-
ties Act, and I remember how
business people complained, as
they felt burdened with this law.
Now I more fully realize its value.
The law expects public places to
make services accessible to those
who are disabled by mobility,
hearing, sight, or whatever and
requires it if federal money is in-
volved.
Think about it, you and I are
just one small accident away from
paralysis, or a viral infection
away from deafness, or a blood
sugar away from being blind.
Able or disabled, we need to make
our world more accessible.

Easy Garden Journal
News Flash! My Okra article
prompted some comments from
readers, thank you for calling!
Seems the horticulture pros don’t
always know what works in the
country. Some gardeners indi-
cated they have had great success
growing Okra locally. Apparently
Zone 4 isn’t a “no-no” for this
southern veggie. Just put the
seed in the ground during late
May to early June and watch it
grow, then enjoy the blooms, pick
eat, fry, or pickle!
A lot of garden writers always
are encouraging us to keep a gar-
den journal. Have any of you ever
actually done that? We have
thought about it often, attempted
it one time and it always “falls by
the way”. It is a good idea to keep
notes about your gardening ef-
forts, what works, what does not
work, what you like and what you
hate. But it is still a chore for
most of us.
Here is a tip that “may” work
for you. Get a large oversize spiral
bound calendar with big daily
squares, plenty of room for brief
notes on a daily basis. At the end
of the year you have a complete
record of your gardening year
without tedious journaling.
You can easily record in the
date space:
•The date you sowed which
seeds
•When the seeds germinated
•When you set the plants out
/or potted them

Your Questions,
Social Security Answers
Question: I’m trying to figure
out how much I need to save for
my retirement. Does the govern-
ment offer any help with financial
education?
Answer: Yes. For starters, you
may want to find out what you
can expect from Social Security
with a visit to Social Security’s
Retirement Estimator at
www.socialsecurity.gov/estima-
tor. The Financial Literacy and
Education Commission has a
website that can key you in on the
basics of financial education:
www.mymoney.gov. Finally,
you’ll want to check out the Con-
sumer Financial Protection Bu-
reau, which offers educational
information on a number of finan-
cial matters, including mort-
gages, credit cards, retirement,
and other big decisions. Visit the
Consumer Financial Protection
Bureau at www.consumerfi-
nance.gov.
Question: I understand that to
get Social Security disability ben-
efits, my disability must be ex-
pected to last at least a year. Do I
have to wait a year before I can
apply for benefits?
Answer: No. If you believe
your disability will last a year or
longer, apply for disability bene-
fits as soon as you become dis-
abled. It can take three to four
months to process an application.
If your application is approved,
we will pay your first Social Secu-
rity disability benefits for the
sixth full month after the date
your disability began. For more
information about Social Security
disability benefits, refer to Dis-
ability Benefits (Publication No.

Hispanic and Women Farmers
and Ranchers Claims Must be
Filed by MAY 1, 2013
WASHINGTON, March 25,
2013- Agriculture Secretary Tom
Vilsack today announced the ex-
tension of the voluntary claims
process for Hispanic and women
farmers and ranchers who allege
discrimination by the USDA in
past decades. All claims must
now be filed by MAY 1, 2013.
"Hispanic and women farmers
who believe they have faced dis-
criminatory practices in the past
from the USDA have additional
time to file a claim in order to
have a chance to receive a cash
payment or loan forgiveness,"
said Secretary Vilsack. "USDA
urges potential claimants to con-
tact the Claims Administrator for
information and to file their claim
packages on or before May 1,
2013."
The process offers a voluntary
alternative to litigation for each
Hispanic or female farmer and
rancher who can prove that
USDA denied his or her applica-
tion for loan or loan servicing as-
sistance for discriminatory
reasons for certain time periods
between 1981 and 2000.
As announced in February
2011, the voluntary claims
process will make available at
least $1.33 billion for cash awards
and tax relief payments, plus up
to $160 million in farm debt re-
lief, to eligible Hispanic and
women farmers and ranchers.
There are no filing fees to partici-
pate in the program.
Call center representatives can
be reached at 1-888-508-4429.
Claimants may register for a
claims package (by calling the
number or visiting the website) or
may download the forms from the
website. All those interested in
learning more or receiving infor-
mation about the claims process
and claims packages are encour-
aged to visit the website at any
time or to contact the call center
telephone number Monday
through Friday 9 a.m. to 8 p.m.
Eastern Time.
Claim packages and other doc-
umentation may be mailed to His-
panic and Women Farmers and
Ranchers Claims Administrator,
PO Box 4540, Portland, OR
97208-4540. Claim packages and
other documentation may also be
emailed to claims@hwfr.org.
Claimants may also fax claims
packages and other documenta-
tion to (855) 626-8343. Completed
forms and documentation must
be received no later than 11:59
p.m. PDT on May 1, 2013.
Once a claim is submitted to
the Claims Administrator, the
Claims Administrator will deter-
mine if it is timely and complete.
If it is, the claim will move to the
Claims Adjudicator for a determi-
nation on the merits of the claim.
USDA may submit evidence to
the Claims Adjudicator regarding
the claim. If a claim is deemed in-
complete, a claimant will be noti-
fied by the Claims Administrator
and given the opportunity to pro-
vide additional information
within a certain timeframe.
Claimants may check the status
of their claims on the claims web-
site.
Website: www.farmerclaims
.gov
Phone: 1-888-508-4429
Fax: (855) 626-8343
Email: claims@hwfr.org
Claims Period: September 24,
2012 – May 1, 2013.
Independent companies will
administer the claims process and
adjudicate the claims. Although
there are no filing fees to partici-
pate and a lawyer is not required
to participate in the claims
process, persons seeking legal ad-
vice may contact a lawyer or other
legal services provider.
Under Secretary Vilsack's
leadership, USDA has instituted
a comprehensive plan to
strengthen the Department as a
model service provider and to en-
sure that every farmer and
rancher is treated equally and
fairly as part of "a new era of civil
rights" at USDA. In February
2010, the Secretary announced
the Pigford II settlement with
African American farmers, and in
October 2010, he announced the
Keepseagle settlement with Na-
tive American farmers. Both of
those settlements have since re-
ceived court approval. Unlike the
cases brought by African Ameri-
can and Native American farm-
ers, the cases filed by Hispanic
and women farmers over a decade
ago were not certified as class ac-
tions. The claims process provides
a voluntary alternative to contin-
uing litigation for Hispanic and
female farmers and ranchers who
want to use it.

On March 19, USDA joined
millions of Americans in celebrat-
ing National Agriculture Day.
National Agriculture Day pro-
vides an important opportunity
each year to say “Thank You” to
America’s farmers, ranchers and
growers. It’s a time to recognize
their productivity and to cele-
brate their abilities.
Their work has real impacts
for every American. Our abun-
dant food supply means that we
spend a lower portion of our in-
come on food than the people of
any other developed nation.
Meanwhile, America’s agricul-
tural exports support more than
one million jobs here at home.
As we celebrate their achieve-
ments, it’s important for all of us
to understand the uncertainty
faced by our farmers, ranchers
and growers. In the past year,
they have endured the worst
drought in generations – putting
an extra strain on farmers, and
raising input costs for livestock
and dairy producers. The drought
continues to impact many areas
of the nation today.
Unfortunately, Washington
has only added to this uncer-
tainty. Congress has failed to pro-
vide a comprehensive, multiyear
Food, Farm and Jobs Bill. Addi-
tionally, as a result of the se-
quester, budget cuts will reduce
funding across the board for serv-
ices that USDA provides to farm-
ers, ranchers and rural
Americans.
Even in the face of these chal-
lenges, our agriculture sector has
achieved great things. Thanks to
the willingness of our producers
to innovate and embrace new
methods, production has re-
mained strong even in the face of
drought and other challenges.
We’ve had the four strongest
years for agricultural exports in
history, with more than $478 bil-
lion in exports from 2009-2012.
This year, American agriculture
is projected to set another new ex-
port record.
At USDA, we’re proud to sup-
port America’s farmers and
ranchers. We don’t just owe them
our gratitude. We owe them de-
pendable, modern service, which
is even more important during
these uncertain times.
That’s why we’ve been working
hard for years to make improve-
ments, to streamline operations
and to find budget efficiencies. In
recent years, we have achieved
more than $700 million in tar-
geted, common-sense savings.
These efforts put us in a better
position to support agriculture
and strengthen the economy in
rural America.
As we recognize and celebrate
American agriculture this week, I
want to give special recognition to
the resilience and commitment of
the greatest farmers and ranch-
ers on earth. USDA will continue
to do all we can to support their
work.

Area Farm credlt 8ervlces of Amerlca
customer-owners recelve $2.76
mllllon ln 2012 cash-back dlvldends
- Funds Beneflt Local 0ommunltles -
Rapid City, SD (March 18, 2013) – Farm Credit Services of America (FC-
SAmerica) announced today that customer-owners in western South Dakota
and Crook and Weston counties in Wyoming served by the cooperative’s
Rapid City Marketplace are receiving checks totaling $2.75 million this
month, and cumulative in nine years $16,553,000 million. ese checks rep-
resent the areas’ share of a total $130 million cash-back dividends distributed
by FCSAmerica for 2012.
“History suggests customers will spend a signicant percentage of their
cash-back dividends in the communities they call home in addition to using
the funds to support their operations,” said Doug eel, Vice President. e
Rapid City local oce works with customers in Harding, Perkins, Butte,
Meade, Haakon, Lawrence, Pennington, Custer, Shannon, Fall River, Jackson,
Bennett and Crook and Weston counties in Wyoming.
Because of the cooperative’s consistency through agriculture’s good times
and challenging times, we are able to make this signicant distribution, eel
said. FCSAmerica’s nancial strength and staying power enabled the coop-
erative’s Board of Directors to return one of the largest cash-back dividends
in its history to customer-owners, while continuing to oer attractive interest
rates and building capital for future generations.
e $130 million cash-back dividend for 2012 is the ninth in FCSAmer-
ica’s history and brings the total cash distributions since 2004 to nearly $700
million. During this same nine year period, FCSAmerica’s capital (members’
equity) has grown from $1.5 billion to $3.2 billion and net income has grown
from $294 million to $481 million.
FCSAmerica has adopted a patronage program every year since 2004.
Each eligible customer’s cash-back dividend is based on the average loan vol-
ume during the calendar year. e more loan business a customer has with
the cooperative, the more they benet nancially through cash-back divi-
dends.
e FCSAmerica Board also approved a patronage program for 2013,
with the total cash-back dividend to be decided by the Board in December
2013.

cluding every county in the state of South Dakota and Wyoming visit

The Legislature’s Executive
Board today selected Sen. Ryan
Maher, R-Isabel, as its chairman
and Rep. Lance Carson, R-
Mitchell, as vice-chairman. The
15-member board oversees the
administrative decisions for the
Legislature during the nine
months outside legislative ses-
sion. The leadership last year was
Rep. Chuck Turbiville, R-Dead-
wood, as chairman and Sen. Joni
Cutler, R-Sioux Falls, as vice
chair. Turbiville was term-limited
and didn’t seek Senate election
last year, while Cutler retired
from the Legislature. This is Car-
son’s third year on the board. As-
suming he continues on it, and
assuming tradition is followed,
he’ll be chairman in 2014. That
would coincide with his final year
in the House, as he’s currently
serving his fourth consecutive
term and is up against the consti-
tutional term limit of four consec-
utive terms in the same chamber.
He is 67. As for Maher, this is his
fourth consecutive term in the
Senate.
Maher, Carson are
new E-Board leaders

Dean Wink, Larry Rhoden, and Gary
Cammack were present to give an up-
date on some of the bills passed in the
SD Legislature. Items discussed were
the Per Student Allocation and the one-
time-money for the 2013-2014 school
year; Mil Levies; Innovative grants; Tech-
nology grants; and the Sentinel bill.
No other citizens were present to ad-
dress the board.
Mrs. Baye gave the superintendent’s
report. The NWAS Administrative advi-
sory Board met on February 27th. Items
discussed included: CTE programs -
conferences; numbers; repairs; staffing
and housing. Special Ed – Cooperative
Agreements; CPI Training, staffing, con-
ferences and in-service. An ESA 5 up-
date included an enrollment summary
sheet with the fall semester CTE pro-
grams at each of the member schools.
The Department of Education was here
for a site visit on February 18th. Pearson
Corporation and State representatives
were here to determine our readiness for
online testing. Our system needs up-
grades as well as the number of comput-
ers we have acceptable for students to
take the tests is lacking. However, the
DOE has communicated since that time
that it is a major problem across the
state. Discussions are being held on
what to do since most schools will not be
ready for the online test next year. Some
suggestions have been to allow a waiver
from taking the test and to continue as a
paper-and-pencil test again. This is the
last year of the Dakota Character grant
and we completed the surveys during
conferences with parents and also with
the staff and students. TIE will pay for
several of our teachers to attend the TIE
Conference. The Legislature is finished
with this session and although it seemed
that involvement by educational groups
was slower this year, there was a feeling
by many administrators that an effort
was made by our legislators to help our
schools financially. Evaluations are al-
most done and should be completed by
the end of the quarter. Mr. Daughters
and Misty Williams will be attending a
Teacher Fair in Spearfish and Mrs. Baye
plans to attend the fair in Sioux Falls.

ance Assessment Progression, break-
down of standards-strands/domain and
when they are taught; online literature in-
tegration standards; Webb Leveling and
accessing MyOER for online resources.
All of these topics or resources will assist
in implementing the common core and
teaching for optimum learning for future
testing. Cris Sargeant will be here March
14th to work with Mrs. Smith and Mrs.
Baye in response to our Special Educa-
tion Review.
Mr. Daughters gave the principal’s re-
port. Mr. Daughters has completed all
evaluations for the school year. On
March 1st, the leadership team shared
with the staff some of the latest develop-
ments in Common Core. They shared
some documents and websites to help
them further their understanding of Com-
mon Core. In the afternoon, some of our
teachers shared some Literacy Integra-
tion and demonstrated various reading
strategies. Our 5-8th grade students
have completed their first two rounds of
Civic Oration speeches. Four students
will be traveling to Rapid City for compe-
tition at St. Thomas More on March 20th.
Mr. Daughters and Mrs. Williams will be
attending the Black Hills State University
Teacher Fair to share information about
our district with students who have or will
soon be graduating. Mr. Daughters and
Mrs. Williams have also been busy look-
ing at the schedule for next school year.
They have made some changes to bet-
ter align our schedule and yet meet the

Mrs. Fischbach and the FHS Student
