Local residents have the op-
portunity to celebrate life by join-
ing in the community blood drive
on Thurday, March 7th, at St.
Joseph’s Parish Hall in Faith.
Not only will people have a great
feeling after donating blood at the
drive, but they’ll be able to check
their total cholesterol level.
United Blood Services now offers
free cholesterol testing to blood
donors. United Blood Services
does a “total cholesterol” test that
allows donors to eat before the
test–no fasting is required.
“We use the ‘total cholesterol’
test because it’s important for
donors to have a healthy meal be-
fore they donate,” Ferley says. It
is recommended that adults 20
years and older have a different
cholesterol test, called a lipopro-
tein profile, every 5 years. A
lipoprotein profile requires a 12-
hour fast and is done at a physi-
cian’s office or lab.
Donors can check their confi-
dential results at www.blood-
hero.com the week after their do-
nation. Volunteer blood donors
must be at least 16 years old,
weigh at least 110 pounds and be
in good health. Additional
height/weight requirements apply
to donors 22 and younger, and
donors who are 16, or 17 in cer-
tain areas, must have signed per-
misssion from a parent or
guardian. Donors are asked to
bring a photo ID and Donor Card
every time they donate. First-
time donors receive a donor card
with their blood type in the mail
shortly after their first donation.
The FHS Student Council is
sponsoring this blood drive in
memory of their former teacher,
Patti Storm. Mrs. Storm and her
students did one blood drive a
year for the past several years
and they are carrying on this tra-
dition. Call the Faith School to
schedule an appointment or log

Peggy O’Connor is the newest face
at the Faith Clinic. Peggy, a certified
nurse practioner, has been working
here several months and some of you
have probably seen her around but
didn’t know who she was if you
haven’t been to the clinic.
Peggy was born in Rapid City and
grew up in Sturgis, along with two
brothers. Following graduation from
Sturgis Brown High School she went
to BHSU for a business degree. Sev-
eral years later she went to SDSU for
a degree in nursing. She received her
masters from SDSU in May 2012.
Peggy’s last job was with the VA
and they did a lot of paper work. She
enjoys nursing and being with pa-
tients. She gets much more contact
with patients at the clinic.
I asked Peggy about the difference
between a CNP and a PA. She said
before you can be a CNP you must
have a degree in nursing. As of 2015
you’ll be required to have a Doctorate
of Nurse Practitioner. Until recently
PA’s had to have a masters but they
could have a degree in anything.
They used to just go though a pro-
gram, now they will have to have a
masters. Nurse Practitioners have a
collaborating physician and PAs are
supervised by a physician. Certified
Nurse Practitioners can do more,
make more independent deci-
sions. A Nurse Practitioner re-
quires four years of nursing
before you become a NP. Peggy
spent four years part time to meet
the requirements for a Nurse
Practitioner and will have 4 years
part-time for her masters. In
2015 they will require 6 years for
a masters degree.
Peggy is on duty at the Faith
Clinic five days a week, driving
back and forth to Sturgis to spend
time with her 7 year old twins, a
boy and a girl, who stay with
their dad in Sturgis while she is
working. She does have a place to
stay here if she needs to. She be-
came acquainted with our com-
munity and the clinic when she
came here as a student last
spring to work with Verna Schad.
Peggy really enjoys working
here. She likes the variety; the
people are fun to work with, they
have a good sense of humor and
are down-to-earth. The staff at
the clinic is very kind, and you
don’t get that everywhere. She
said, “I came to learn from the
best and I think that Verna is one
of the best.” Peggy gets to do
everything from urgent care to
emergencies, health care, illness,
and accidents, from babies to the
elderly.
Peggy doesn’t have any hob-
bies, she’s been too busy with
school, her job and her kids, but
does get in a little reading every
now and then and enjoys time
with friends. She also enjoys trav-
eling.
O’Connor is newest face at

Everybody enjoys being a “wee
bit Irish” when it comes to March
and St. Patrick’s Day.  But, that
“wee bit of Irish” may not bring
you luck if you choose to drink
and drive! Driving while impaired
during any holiday puts everyone
on the road at risk. 
Every 51 minutes a person is
killed in motor vehicle crash in-
volving alcohol.  The majority of
these crashes involve drunk driv-
ers who have blood alcohol con-
centrations of .15…almost double
the limit for driving under the in-
fluence. These crashes are 100 %
preventable and the tragic num-
bers demand a sober solution. 
Whether you’re celebrating
your Irish heritage or enjoying
the company of your friends, it
can turn deadly if you make the
choice to drink and drive.  Don’t
rely on being a “wee bit Irish” to
keep you safe, if you drink,
DON’T drive. Designate a sober
driver and stay alive!

Legislative Update
Rep. Betty Olson
March 8 is the last day of the
2013 legislative session, with
March 25 set as Veto Day when
legislators go back to Pierre to de-
cide if we want to override any of
the governor’s vetoes. It was re-
freshing to see that the world did
not come to an end March 1st
when sequestration kicked in, in
spite of the dire predictions Pres-
ident Obama made when Con-
gress refused to cave in to his
demands to raise your taxes even
higher to prevent sequestration
from occurring.
Even though sequestration
was his idea, Obama is blaming
Congress for the measly 85 billion
dollar decrease in projected fed-
eral spending, a reduction of just
2.4 percent! He ignores the 600
billion dollars in tax increases
that Congress gave him in the fis-
cal cliff negotiations in January
in return for zero cuts to spending
and the one trillion dollars in new
taxes for ObamaCare, but taxpay-
ers have certainly noticed the hit
to their pocketbooks. Six trillion
dollars have been added to the
national debt under this adminis-
tration and if this is the only way
to stop the spending, I’m all for it!
Check out our ballooning national
debt here: http://usdebtclock.org/
but don’t do it at bedtime or you’ll
never get to sleep.
Meanwhile, back in South
Dakota, these bills passed the
House this week:
SB 151 clarifies the mainte-
nance responsibilities on unim-
proved section lines.
SB 86 increases the minimum
salary payable to county officials,
state's attorneys, and sheriffs.
SB 156 authorizes township
boards to increase the front foot
assessment for road mainte-
nance, repairs, and improve-
ments and to revise certain
provisions concerning road dis-
tricts established by townships.
SB 88 authorizes the county to
deny bids on county sales of tax
deed properties if the bidder is
not current on property taxes due.
SB 145 revises provisions con-
cerning the content of annual
property tax bill.
SB 96 exempts school districts
from the requirement to reorgan-
ize due to low enrollment.
SB 190 makes an appropria-
tion to fund tax refunds for eld-
erly persons and persons with a
disability, to revise the income el-
igibility requirements for prop-
erty and sales tax refunds, and to
declare an emergency.
SB 39 establishes a penalty for
a juvenile convicted as an adult of
a Class A or B felony and allows
a sentence of up to life imprison-
ment after a sentencing hearing.
SB 168 requires that newborns
be screened for congenital heart
defects.
SB 205 is my bill to put wolves
on the predator list. It won’t apply
to the western Dakotas until the
feds remove them from the en-
dangered species list, which
they’ve promised to do so this
month. Let’s hope they do it.
SB 1 revises the provisions re-
garding plugging and perform-
ance bonds for oil and gas wells
and to repeal the supplemental
restoration bond requirement.
This is another of the bills that
came out of our Oil and Gas De-
velopment Committee summer
study.
SB 83 designates Welcome
Home Vietnam Veterans Day as
a working holiday. Rep. Elizabeth
May had her seatmate, Rep.
Brock Greenfield, read a touching
tribute to her brother Sam Marty,
who is a decorated Vietnam vet-
eran. Liz was raised on the Marty
ranch south of the Slim Buttes
where Sam still lives and our fa-
thers grew up together. It’s a good
thing she didn’t ask me to read
the tribute to Sam because I could
not have made it through without
tearing up. Even Brock struggled
with it and he doesn’t even know
Sam!
SB 89 limits the liability of re-
tail dealers in petroleum products
under certain conditions. This
will allow west river gas stations
to legally sell 85 Octane like
they’ve been doing for the last 60
years.
SB 227 will allow you to legally
carry a concealed weapon on your
snowmobile. And no, I didn’t
know that was against the law ei-
ther!
SB 166 increases the number
of years that permits to carry a
concealed weapon are valid from
four to five years.
SB 130 revises provisions con-
cerning absentee voting.
SB 6 determines whether fac-
tors affecting productivity should
be applied if the actual use of
agricultural land does not corre-
spond to the soil classification
standards.
SB 74 requires the forfeiture
of preference points for certain
hunting licenses upon conviction
of unlawfully killing, destroying,
taking, or possessing trophy ani-
mals.
SB 115 increases the commer-
cial fertilizer inspection fee for
purposes of fertilizer-related re-
search and creates the Nutrient
Research Education Council to
promote such research.
I also brought House Com-
memoration 1025 on Friday rec-
ognizing Saturday, July 27, 2013,
as the National Day of the Amer-
ican Cowboy.
Four of my bills were passed
out of the Senate Ag Committee
this week:
HB 1083 revises the crime of
rustling to include sheep and
goats.
HB 1123 increases the sur-
charge on hunting licenses by a
dollar to be used for predator con-
trol.
HB 1167 restructures the pol-
icy advisory committee for animal
damage control.
HB 1168 allows local predator
control districts to increase the
assessments on producers for
predator control if the increases
are approved by a majority of the
producers in the district.
The School Sentinel bill passed
the Senate on Wednesday. HB
1087 provides for the creation of
school sentinel programs and for
the training of school sentinels.

Bike Week band!
"I have been waiting for this

ready to rise and meet that chal-
lenge," Cain states enthusiasti-

with plenty of new ammunition!
Look for her the new acoustic
album "Modern Day Gypsy" to be
available for the first time to Day-
tona Bike Week party-goers as
well as a new line of 2013 apparel
so you can promote your favorite
rocker chick to the masses!

of raw. Raw rock, raw talent, raw
invention." Sasha Mullins Las-
siter-Rally Events/Marketing
Manager Lone Star Rally and Jay
Allen Productions
Jasmine Cain's shows are sta-
dium-quality performances, high
in energy, and wildly entertain-
ing. The band is a cast of musical
characters offering a tightly
unique performance and intensity
rarely seen even among national
acts.

Catch-up news that was sub-
mitted after I had sent last week’s
news was that on Tuesday, Zona
Vig had an appointment in Stur-
gis and picked up Travis and
Chandelle Brink's four older chil-
dren and the dog Roo to come
home with her for a week while
their parents were spending some
R&R in San Diego.  The weather
was so nice that Landan, Liberty,
Ainsley and Alexavier had a pic-
nic in front of the house complete
with a bonfire and cooking hot
dogs and marshmallows.  They
spent one afternoon building a
teepee and fort in the trees that
was visited with an uninvited
guest of skunk.  Grandpa Dwayne
came to the rescue.  That Sunday,
Zona and the grandkids joined
Dwayne on the trip to services at
the Prairie City Church and then
on to the Northern Hills Church
of Christ for the kids to practice
for Leadership Training for
Christ with other participants.
Landan also took part in the Teen
Connection that evening.
Faye Fees returned home from
a couple weeks of visiting in the
Yukon Territory of Aberdeen,
SD.  She snuck home between
storm fronts that are going
through that area about twice a
week.
John and Carmen Heidler
went to Rapid City on Tuesday for
appointments and "stuff".
Spud and Bernice Lemmel
spent a couple days in Rapid City
for eye appointments last week.
Chandelle and Zamia Brink
came out to the Vig Ranch on
Tuesday afternoon to get her chil-
dren.  She joined Dwayne and
Zona for a late dinner with other
guests of Merle and Morgan Vig.
Wednesday, Howard and I
went to Faith for the funeral serv-
ices for Marie Doak. Our condo-
lences go out to Wayne Doak and
sons and Arlene Talley Beebe, but
Marie had been ailing for several
years so she is at peace now and
free from suffering.  Carmen Hei-
dler also was in for the funeral
from our area.
Glenn and Margaret Fogelman
had a treat on Monday for their
wedding anniversary as Dan took
them out for dinner in Faith.
Happy Anniversary neighbors.
Saturday, John Heidler went
to Faith to visit his mom,
Dorothy, and relatives from
Philip. Carmen went to Newell
that day to attend the funeral
services for her relative, Roy Van-
Sickel.
Dwayne and Zona Vig flew to
Buffalo, SD to take in the District
AAU Wrestling. They enjoyed vis-
iting with old friends and watch-
ing the Winkler grandkids
wrestle. Three of the kids quali-
fied to go on to Regionals.  Con-
gratulations, kids.
Sunday after church dinner
guests of the Sam Cowles family
were Duane and JoAnn Wood.

Saturday afternoon as my
freshly scrubbed  bathroom floor
was drying I sat down for a rest
and turned on the TV. I was sur-
prised to find a program called
"American Bible Challenge" on
Direct channel 233 or GSN. It
runs from 1:00 till 2:00. Jeff Fox-
worthy is the host. After all the
absolute garbage they put on the
networks and satellite it was a
delight to watch, even tho’ I'm not
very good at it.
Maxine Kilness of Roswell,
New Mexico passed away Thurs-
day night. A viewing time has
been set for 4 PM to 6 PM Friday,
March 8th at the LaGrone Fu-
neral Home, 900 S. Main,
Roswell, NM  and funeral services
will be held  at the Immanuel
Lutheran Church Saturday, 9th
at 10:30  AM.    Maxine was mar-
ried to Kenneth Kilness and was
Gwen Kilness' sister-in-law and
aunt to Harold and Allen Water-
land, Norma Williams, and Robin
and DeAnn Kilness. Condolences
go out to all.
Lacey Wondercheck and I were
in Rapid City Friday for her doc-
tor appointment. Quirt stayed
with Grandpa Harold. Harold and
Quirt met Robert Wondercheck,
Grandpa John Wondercheck and
Ann, and Danny Wondercheck of
Carlyle, Wyo. for lunch at  the
Branding Iron. They had hired
someone to plow the snow on
their ranch road last week so
were surprised to find us dry and
brown.
Saturday, Harold and Allen
Waterland and Robert Won-
dercheck spent most of the day
working on a range well of
Harold's that was looking like a
free flowing spring. We had
planned to attend the basketball
game in Lemmon that night but
did not make it. 
Tucker, Bev and Tina Hudson
were Sturgis shoppers on Monday

Monday found Jim and Vonnie
O'Dea in Spearfish at the basket-
ball game against Custer, with
Spearfish winning, Then they
went to Rapid City on Thursday
to watch Spearfish against St
Thomas More. It was a very good
game with Spearfish winning
that game also. O'Deas met Holly
and Paige Phillips after the game
and Paige came home with

grandpa and grandma to help
with chores.
Jim and Vonnie met Vonnie's
uncle and aunt, Dolan and
Eyvonne Johnson in Philip on
Tuesday for lunch. They are from
Minnesota and were on the way
home from Colorado. They had
been visiting their daughter. Oth-
ers attending  were Vonnie's aunt
Eleanor and some cousins and
siblings from the area.
Saturday, Jim and Vonnie
O'Dea and Paige Phillips went to
New Underwood to the reception
and dance for newlyweds Shari
and Monte Sandal. Eleven of the
12 children of O'Deas, Sandals,
and Eymers were in attendance,
making a good reunion of old
Milesville friends. Paige returned
home with her mother.
Marcia Eymer was surprised
when Jim and Vonnie, Bill and
Karyl Sandal met Donnie and
Marcia Eymer for dinner in Philip
for her birthday. Later they en-
joyed cards at Sandals.
Today the wind is horrible
even for South Dakota. As we
came around the southwest cor-
ner of the Howes Store, Harold’s
cap was ripped off his head from
the back and blew clear over to
the shelter belt of trees. He drove
around till we found it because it
was his Alaska cap!
As we drove along the highway
my farmer husband kept com-
menting on where he saw a field
blowing dirt. This made me think
of the dirty thirties and the sto-
ries my folks told of the dust. Are
we facing a similar time with eco-
nomic problems, high unemploy-
ment and drought?  
The Faith Booster Club met on
February 20, 2013. Old business
included an update on scholar-
ships that were paid to the col-
leges being attended by TyAnn
Schuelke, Skyler Hulm and Royce
Haines. Doug Schauer and Mar-
lene Gustafson have purchased
new track and cross country uni-
forms with the donation Booster
Club made to the Faith High
School Athletic Dept. last fall.
There was some discusssion on
doing the football toss during
home football games this fall and
doing the tailgate supper before
the homecoming football game.
New business discussed in-
cluded trying to do a student/staff
member of the month. An infor-
mation piece will be written up
and put in the school bulletin.
Amy Ulrich, on behalf of the post
prom committee, asked for a do-
nation. It was decided to do a do-
nation, but the amount will be
determined at the next meeting.
Wanda Ruth came to ask for help
with the Faith High School
Alumni Assn, which has been
struggling the last few years be-
cause of a lack of local support.
What was discussed was an infor-
mal partnership where resources
would be kept separate, but man-
power could be shared. The
Booster Club will be discussing
this in more detail with the
Alumni Assn. at their March 13th
meeting. Both organizations
would like to encourage everyone
to attend this meeting to show
your support to both organiza-
tions and give input to help find
solutions for the continuation of
the Faith High School Alumni
Assn. Local interest has been
hard to find and at the present
time none of the Booster Club
members are Faith Alumni.
Please mark you calendars and
plan to attend the Faith Booster
Club/Faith High School Alumni
meeting on March 13th at 5 pm at
the Faith Library.

March came in like a lamb the
first couple days but it changed
by the fourth day. We had 40s
last week, up to 60 on the week-
end. We got a little snow last
Thursday night, but not much.
Sunday night we had a little
more, with a lot of wind that con-
tinued all day Monday. We only
got into the 20s Monday.
Lyle and Arlene Beebe stopped
in to the office last week. They
were here from Arizona to attend

Baasham in Rapid City before
heading back to Arizona for a cou-
ple more months.
Marge Hoffman and Phyllis
(Bockman) Day accompanied
Teresa (Talley) Baasham to Faith

Years back I needed a stove for
my house in town. I went to a sale
in Dupree that had one listed. I’d
stood around all day waitng for it
to be sold. The auctioneer was
still quite a ways down the line
and I needed a bathroom. I hur-
ried off and back – darn, it was
sold while I was gone! I hunted up
Ann Varland, gave her a few dol-
lars more and got the range, had
it loaded and left.
Anyway, two or three years
later as I was putting a pie in the
oven, it failed to heat. The pie
went into the freezer and I
started calling places in Rapid
City to find a new oven element.
The first two places had never
heard of that make of range. The
next said that company had been
out of business for years. The
fourth place said he could proba-
bly send out one that would fit –
which he did. Paul put the ele-
ment in but the oven did not heat
up. I called the store in Rapid
City. They said they’d send out
another that they were sure
would work – which they did. It
was put in but the oven never
heated.
We put the old element back in
thinking we’d have to take the
stove to the dump and get a new
one. Then I had a thought; I’m
going to call Lawrence Collins –
he can fix anything.
Lawrence was at my house in
ten minutes listening to “my tale
of woe.”
He stood limply, head tipped to
Memories of the Past
one side looking at my stove and
finally said, “Did you ever try
turning the oven on?” “Why of
course we had, dozens of times.”
Lawrence reached over and
pushed the oven button and then
opened the oven door. The ele-
ment was starting to turn orange!
Lawrence turned and looked at
us – astonished and mouth agape,
as were we! And then he laughed
and said, “when people weren’t
looking I reached over and
pushed that little, no-labeled
reset button at the end of the
stove panel.”
Lawrence felt good and was
still laughing as he headed for the
door – Lawrence could fix any-
thing!

We couldn't have asked March
to come in any more like a lamb
than it did. Temperatures
reached 60 both Saturday and
Sunday, making for a beautiful
weekend.
The boys Faith Longhorns
fought hard and won the District
Tournament on Saturday night in
Lemmon. They played Harding
County in the championship
game that ended with a score of
52 to 43. The team enjoyed a po-
lice escort into town from the 3
mile turnoff west of Faith to help
them celebrate their win. They
currently have 19 wins and two
losses under their belts. Their two
losses were to Dupree. They
match up with Dupree on Tues-
day night in Mobridge for the Re-
gion championship game. Reggie
Rhoden, Caden Smiley, and
Chaney Keffeler are Faith Long-
horns who are from Central
Meade County.
Henrietta McNenny's nephew,
Loui Young, from Ft. Pierre has
the distinct honor of reffing for
the State A basketball Tourna-
ment.
Sunday services at the Com-
munity Baptist Church included
a baby dedication for Kyra Barry,
daughter of Kyle and Kassi
Barry. Many family members
from both sides of the family were
in attendance for the special occa-
sion. There was a potluck dinner
afterward as there always is on
the first Sunday of the month.
This week is the last week of
the legislative session. While the
Gary Cammacks start their calv-
ing early, Larry Rhoden will be
coming home to begin calving.
Dean Wink will likely be coming
home to a busy time on the ranch
as well.
For those who are interested,
the Meade County Lincoln Day
Dinner will be held on Saturday,

We have now completed the
8th week of legislative session-
thus completing 32 of the 38 days
scheduled.  Nearly 500 bills were
introduced this year and we are
now down to under 100 active
bills left. There are 47 bills that
are still active in the House and
54 active bills in the Senate. So
far, the Governor has signed 28
bills into law.
We have dealt with a multi-
tude of issues over the past 8
weeks and have spent hundreds
of hours facilitating public hear-
ings where all citizens have had
the opportunity to participate in
the democratic process for creat-
ing laws. Not all bills pass, how-
ever ALL citizens have had the
opportunity to be heard.   
This week is the final week of
session and unlike Washington
DC, we will balance the state
budget. Because of the fiscal re-
straint we have implemented
over the past several years our
fiscal house is in order and we are
well positioned to balance our
budget this year without raising
taxes and without cutting govern-
ment services.
The budget will prioritize edu-
cation funding in our state. In
fact, nearly 50% of the budget will
be spent on education funding. It
will also prioritize funding to take
care of people which will consist
of nearly 40% of the budget and
includes Medicaid spending. 10%
of the budget will be spent on pro-
tecting the public and money
spent on the rest of government
will equal about 5%.   
As we review the revenue pro-
jections that will impact our state
budget we are continuing to con-
sider the impacts of the seques-
tration. The current impact to the
SD state budget could be a loss of
about $24 million a year in fed-
eral funds.  The state-by-state re-
ports released by the White
House are full of numbers about
funding cuts for schools, defense,
public health, law enforcement
and social services – any of which
could be true if Congress and
Obama fail to act.  
Some of the most dire White
House predictions are about edu-
cation funding. However, the
White House doesn’t mention:
Those cuts wouldn’t actually kick
in until the next school year.
That’s because those two pro-
grams – Title I aid to disadvan-
taged students and special-
education aid under the Individu-
als with Disabilities Education
Act – are funded in advance, so
they’re already covered for this
school year. 
The bottom line on sequestra-
tion is that the cuts will be real;
however, they will not be nearly
as devastating as the media is
leading people to believe.
Some of the highlights of the
past week include:
•Progress is being made on
economic development and job
creation plan.  HB 1161 will help
promote expansion of existing SD
businesses and provide incentives
for new businesses that will cre-
ate jobs. The bill passed the
House 63-6 with bipartisan sup-
port and is now in the Senate.
•The Senate also passed SB
237 to establish a needs-based
scholarship, referred to as the
“Dakota Dream Scholarship”,
with unanimous support. This
scholarship is designed to help
students who want to attend col-
lege or technical school with some
much needed help.
•The House also passed
HB1061 with near unanimous
support. The bill will enable
South Dakota to get in on the cap-
tive insurance industry. It would
allow a corporation to self-insure,
using its own revenues and set-
ting up its own insurance com-
pany. It would then pay
premiums into that company.
Captive insurance might be used
by a large corporation that has
difficulty finding an insurance
company willing to insure for in-
dustry-specific factors.
In the Senate Commerce Com-
mittee this Friday we passed out
House Bill 1142 on a vote of 5 aye
to 2 nay.  HB 1142, states that no
health insurer, including the
South Dakota Medicaid program
and Medicare, may obstruct pa-
tient choice by excluding a health
care provider licensed under the
laws of this state from participat-
ing on the health insurer's panel
of providers if the provider is lo-
cated within the geographic cov-
erage area of the health benefit
plan and is willing to meet the
terms and conditions of participa-
tion as established by the health
insurer.  In other words, your
health insurance provider will no
longer be able to tell you what
doctor you can and cannot see.
Should this bill pass there will no
longer be in and out of network
options, and for people living in
rural areas I think this will be a
good option for them.
The House also passed HB
1056 to revise various trust and
trust company provisions to keep
our state’s growing trust industry
competitive.
The final week of Session will
be the busiest yet and we will con-
tinue working hard to balance our
state budget without raising
taxes on hard working South
Dakotans.  Please keep in touch

Sen. Ryan Maher’s
Legislative Report
Lackluster Presidential
leadership on Sequestration
Washington has had more
than a year to prepare for the
across-the-board spending cuts
known as the sequester. For
months, Congressional Republi-
cans have been warning of the ef-
fects that these cuts could have
on our national security.
What few people realize is the
sequester was actually President
Obama’s idea. The president pro-
posed sequestration and insisted
it become law. For months now I
have been attempting to get the
White House to comply with, and
provide key details about the se-
quester’s impacts after the presi-
dent signed into law, my
Sequestration Transparency Act.
This bill required the administra-
tion to provide a detailed plan to
the American people on the im-
pacts of the sequester by Septem-
ber of 2012, nearly six months
ago. After ignoring the law and
failing to plan for the sequester’s
impact, the White House conve-
niently waited until the eleventh
hour to issue media propaganda
on the potential state-by-state im-
pacts of the sequester. 
After releasing these reports
and traveling on a 5,000 mile
campaign-style road show gin-
ning up fear about the calamitous
effects of the sequester, the pres-
ident and his allies would have
you believe that the only way we
could prevent these across-the-
board cuts is by once again rais-
ing taxes on hardworking
Americans. While I believe there
are better ways than these
across-the-board cuts to reduce
federal spending, tax increases
are not the answer and I think it
is important to put the sequester
into perspective. Not only has the
federal government had four
straight years of trillion dollar-
plus deficits, but federal spending
has also increased by nearly 20
percent since 2008. It seems to me
that Washington should be able
to absorb a 2.4 percent spending
reduction to the overall $3.6 tril-
lion budget in a smart and effi-
cient manner. In fact, 2.4 percent,
or about $85 billion, is the
amount of money the federal gov-
ernment borrows every 28 days.
Even with the sequester, federal
spending is projected to increase
over last year.
I understand that certain pro-
grams important to many South
Dakotans will be affected by se-
questration. Again, I prefer to
find alternative savings to replace
the sequester, or at the very least,
supported providing the adminis-
tration with some flexibility to
implement the sequester in a
more targeted way. House Repub-
licans twice voted to replace the
sequester with targeted, alterna-
tive savings. In the Senate, I sup-
ported bipartisan legislation
ensuring that priorities vital to
our national security were pro-
tected from the president’s se-
quester by instead targeting
waste, fraud, and inefficiencies
across the federal government.
However, the president and his
congressional allies have demon-
strated that they are not inter-
ested in making smart, targeted
reforms or flexibility to imple-
ment the sequester, but instead
are playing politics to ensure that
when the cuts are enacted they
can continue their attempts to
dodge responsibility.
Rather than raiding taxpayers’
wallets to pay for wasteful gov-
ernment spending by imposing
higher taxes, which the president
continues to demand, we ought to
be looking for ways to stop wast-
ing taxpayer dollars and reduce
government spending in a tar-
geted way. It is time for Congress
to start making spending reforms
that grow the economy and create
jobs.

Orphan trains and the best
interest of the child
My Grandmother Axie died at
99 having lived a blessed yet
tragic life. As a young girl she lost
her father to some illness, and her
mother, struggling to raise four
children, lost a second husband,
and then a third. When the third
husband died Axie’s mother, out
of desperation, put some of her
children into an orphanage, and
Axie grew up separated from her
family. Obviously Axie held no
grudge since during a very suc-
cessful professional life as a fed-
eral judge, Axie cared for her
aging and then dying mother, an
orphan made good.
The history of adoption is as
old as humankind, with family
members raising children or-
phaned by death, or war, or eco-
nomic destruction. The middle
ages introduced the concept of or-
phanage when babies were left at
the door of monasteries, and were
raised in the institution of the
church.
But much of what the world
knows of adoption and rules to
protect orphans actually stems
from the orphan trains of the
United States late 1800s. The
American Civil War and an in-
crease in immigration brought or-
phanage over-crowding and huge
numbers of homeless children
roaming the streets of east coast
urban cities. A group of religious
leaders spearheaded a solution by
shipping them on trains to the
rural west.
Over the next 70 years some-
thing like 250,000 orphaned,
abandoned, or homeless children
were placed on trains and sent to
western rural foster families
working the land. The largest
mass relocation of children to
ever occur, this helped establish
foster care in America and
brought many lost youth into
families where discipline and love
gave them a chance for a reason-
able life. At the same time, how-
ever, many of these children were
indentured and exploited rather
than adopted, and made to be-
come farm laborers and house-
hold servants.
Because of this social experi-
ment, the need to protect children
from abuse developed and the
best example was the Minnesota
adoption law of 1917 requiring
background checks of families
with follow-up after placement.
More foster homes were encour-
aged instead of institutional or-
phanages after this, and the
American trend for adoption to
ensure the best interest of the
child spread globally.
Presently in the US, not every
orphan is adopted with something
like 130,000 children now await-
ing adoption. Another little Axie
out there needs a parent.

South Dakota’s State Flower
“That bold bit of life at the edge
of the snows” is how South
Dakota poet laureate Badger
Clark described the state flower
in his 1939 poem Pasqueflower.
The pasqueflower is a wild-
flower that reaches eight to 12
inches in height. Each stem has
one cup-shaped flower with five to
eight petals that range in color
from dark lavender to almost
white. Silky hairs cover not only
the leaves but also the stems and
buds. As one of the first flowers to
bloom in the spring, it is a re-
minder of life’s springing anew
out of a wintry death.
Pasque refers to Easter and
Passover, and it is around that
time of year that the plant
blooms. On the prairies and
plains of South Dakota, pasque-
flowers typically bloom in late
April and early May. In the Black
Hills, the wildflower may flower
well into May and June. In most
cases, by June the flowers and
fruits are long gone and by the
end of July even the leaves are
gone – dormant until the follow-
ing year.
The little lavender flower
earned a place in the hearts of
American Indians and pioneers
before it earned a place in the
state’s law books.
In a piece of folklore written in
the Dakota language contained in
the North Dakota publication Na-
tive Life, a pasqueflower speaks
as a grandparent addressing
grandchildren. The pasqueflower
tells the grandchildren that she
has come out first of all the flower
people to show that spring is here
and that the buffalo will increase.
Then, when all the other flowers,
birds and animals have come out,
it is time for her to die. By this ex-
ample, she shows the grandchil-
dren that they must become old
and gray, and pass on to the next
land that has been prepared for
them by their ancestors. The
pasqueflower will return again in
early springtime, speaking her
message to generation after gen-
eration.
The Lakota name for the
pasqueflower is ‘hoki cekpa,”
meaning “child’s navel.” The wild-
flower has many other names as
well, including windflower,
prairie crocus, meadow anemone,
May flower and Easter flower.
According to information from
the South Dakota State Historical
Society – State Archives,
Lawrence Riggs, a teacher at Peo-
ria School in Hughes County,
asked the state legislature that
the pasqueflower and the motto “I
Lead” be adopted as the state flo-
ral emblem. In his letter dated
Feb. 4, 1903, he also requested
that the lesson “Be first in Love
and Peace and Faith in Immortal-
ity” be added, and that the flower
and motto be given an honored
place in the state seal and flag.
The South Dakota Educational
Association, which represents
teachers, had previously passed a
resolution urging the legislature
to adopt a floral emblem of the
anemone or pasqueflower and the
motto “I Lead.”
A bill signed into law on March
5, 1903, by Gov. Charles N. Her-
reid approved the pasqueflower,
along with the motto “I Lead,” as
the floral emblem of South
Dakota. South Dakota is the only
state to have incorporated a
motto with its state flower.
It would not be until 40 years
after the pasqueflower was de-
clared the state flower that South
Dakota would have its next state
symbols. The ring-necked pheas-
ant was designated the state bird
and Hail, South Dakota by
Deecort Hammitt was named the
state song, both in 1943.
Since then, the triceratops has
become the state fossil, kuchen
has been named the state dessert
and many more items have been
designated as state symbols to
signify what is important to the
state.
But it was the first flower of
spring that led the way as South
Dakota’s first state symbol.

If you are a college senior or re-
cent graduate, now is the time to
start looking for an internship.
The Department of Labor and
Regulation (DLR) offers a one-
stop shop of services, including a
job search database to help stu-
dents find the perfect position. A
full listing of jobs and internships
is available at www.sdjobs.org.
Internships offer benefits like
real-world work experience, net-
working and an opportunity to
build your resume.
State Labor and Regulation
Secretary Pam Roberts said, “In-
ternships play a vital role not
only in educating young adults,
but in the development of the
South Dakota workforce.”
Internships also provide bene-
fits to employers. By offering in-
ternships and entry-level
positions, employers gain appli-
cants who are eager to work and
learn, have relevant, up-to-date
training and a fresh outlook on
the industry.  
“We encourage companies and
businesses to offer more intern-
ship positions,” said Secretary
Roberts. “They help fill temporary
workforce needs and at the same
time, offer potential long-term
employees.”
Businesses interested in offer-
ing internship positions should
consider the following tips:
• The work should be an inte-
gral part of the student’s course of
study.
• Learning objective should be
clearly identified.
• The student should be in a
shadowing/learning mode.
• The employer should provide
an opportunity for the student to
learn important skills and
processes integral to the business
or profession.
• There should be education
value to the work performed.

South Dakota homeowners
who live in different homes or
new homes from the previous
year have until Friday, March 15,
2013, to file for owner-occupied,
single-family-dwelling certificates
that make them eligible for a
property tax reduction.
“If you have moved into a new
or different home, please check
your assessment notice to ensure
that your home is classified as
owner-occupied,” said Gov. Den-
nis Daugaard. “I want to make
sure the property tax reduction is
received by everyone who is eligi-
ble.”
All South Dakotans who
owned and occupied a home on
Nov. 1, 2012, are eligible for the
classification and the property
tax reduction. Taxpayers who
have received the reductions pre-
viously and still own and occupy
the same homes will continue to
receive the property tax reduction
without filing new certificates. It
is not necessary to file them
again.
The 2013 valuation notices
that taxpayers have received
since March 1, 2013, will indicate
if property is classified as owner-
occupied. To receive the lower tax
rate, homeowners are advised to
check their notices to make sure
their property is listed as owner-
occupied.
Taxpayers who have pur-
chased a home, built a new home
prior to Nov. 1, 2012, or have pre-
viously not applied for the classi-
fication must apply to their
county director of equalization by
March 15, 2013. Applications
postmarked by March 15, 2013,
will qualify for the lower tax rate.
Homeowners who need the
forms or have questions about the
owner-occupied certificate should
contact their county director of
equalization or the Property and
Special Taxes Division of the
South Dakota Department of
Revenue in Pierre at 605-773-
3139.  
March 15th deadline for new homeowners
to get property tax reduction

Maintaining a Shelterbelt
The method used to prepare for
planting a new shelterbelt has a
lot to do with future maintenance.
Following are three common
methods of shelterbelt site prepa-
ration. 1. Tilling – tearing up and
fallowing the entire area where
the trees are to be planted. Trees
usually establish quicker with
this method with no competition.
2. Chemical fallowing with herbi-
cide the entire area the year be-
fore planting. Trees are scalp
planted into the sod. Trees will
establish but survivability varies.
3. Tilling a 10’ wide strip and fal-
low for each row. Trees are
planted and weed control fabric
laid. The vegetation between the
rows remains helping to prevent
weed invasion.
Planting shelterbelts with a
variety of species helps decrease
disease/ insect problems and ex-
tends shelterbelt life and func-
tion. Some shrubs to consider are
Silver Buffaloberry, Chokecherry,
Russian Almond, Caragana, Sand
Cherry, Nanking Cherry, Co-
toneaster, Golden Currant, Han-
sen Hedge Rose, Lilac and
American Plum. Some mid-size
trees to consider include Amur
Maple, Apricot, Crabapple,
Arnold Hawthorne, Homestead
Hawthorne, Tartarian Maple and
Russian Olive. Some tall trees to
consider are Honeylocust, Hack-
berry, Golden Willow, Cotton-
wood, Kentucky Coffee Tree,
Boxelder and Bur Oak. Some
evergreen trees to consider are
Meyers Spruce, Eastern Red
Cedar, Rocky Mountain Juniper,
Austrian Pine, Ponderosa Pine,
Scotch Pine and Black Hills
Spruce.
Why do shelterbelts fail? Pri-
marily due to moisture being at a
premium in our sub-arid climate,
heavy competition for that mois-
ture is one of the main causes of
shelterbelt decline. Smooth
Brome Grass is the worst culprit
but grasses in general are more
efficient competitors for moisture
than trees and shrubs. Weeds of
various types if not controlled rob
moisture from shelterbelts. Old
age and death especially of short-
lived tree species also occurs
when trees reach the end of their
expected lifespan.
The main shelterbelt mainte-
nance methods are tilling, mow-
ing, herbicides, weed control
fabric and cover crops. Tilling
eliminates weeds and grasses and
allowing trees to establish. Mow-
ers or Weed Badgers are often
used by landowners or hired
done. Chemicals are commonly
used alone or in combination with
other methods. Sprays like Tre-
flan and Princep are used to
maintain, or prevent competition
from grasses and weeds within
shelterbelts. Casoron is put
around the holes in fabric to keep
weeds from growing around trees
and Roundup can be used for spot
treatment weed control.
Generally weed control fabric
has improved survival rates and
increased growth rates of trees
and shrubs in our area. The fabric
needs to be cut in either an “X” or
“half moon” pattern about a foot
in size at planting. After 5 years
the holes need to be enlarged to
allow room for tree growth.
As time goes on the holes will
need to be enlarged again or the
fabric removed.
Cover crops should be consid-
ered for use in shelterbelts. Two
that work well are Proso Millet
and wildflowers. Both reseed
themselves providing dense cover
that control weeds and grass com-
petition. Over time viability of
weed seeds decrease and trees
grow large shading out weeds.
Finally, maintaining fences to
keep livestock out of shelterbelts
is also very important. Livestock
can destroy shelterbelts over time
by browsing leaves and twigs,
rubbing bark off, breaking limbs,
and compacting soil over tree
roots.

Noninsured Assistance Pro-

March 15, 2013 is the applica-

Noninsured Assistance Program
(NAP) coverage on most spring
seeded crops and perennial for-
ages.
Producers interested in obtain-
ing NAP on their 2013 spring
seeded or perennial forage non-in-
surable acreage should visit their
local USDA Service Centers on or
before March 15, 2013 to complete
a CCC-471, NAP Application for
Coverage in regard to the 2012
crop year.
NAP coverage is available for
crops where insurance coverage is
not available through Federal
Crop Insurance. NAP is designed
to cover losses due to eligible
causes of loss including damaging
weather, adverse natural occur-
rences, or a condition related to
damaging weather or adverse nat-
ural occurrences. NAP is designed
to cover any loss of production
that exceeds 50 percent of a pro-
ducer’s expected production. Pay-
ments for production loss in excess
of the 50 percent threshold are
calculated at 55 percent of the val-
ues established for the crop.
The NAP administrative fee is
$250 per crop that is limited to
$750 per county per participant
with a $1,875 cap per participant
for all counties. NAP coverage be-
gins 30 days after the NAP Appli-
cation for Coverage is filed and
the applicable administrative fee
has been paid. The administrative
fee is nonrefundable. A limited re-
source producer is not required to
pay the administrative fee, but is
required to certify to this eligibil-
ity and must sign a new applica-
tion each year.

that the pickup his son was driving is
now at the bottom of Durkee Lake and
that he had talked with Game, Fish and
Parks and they stated that City of Faith
had the say in how long the pickup can
stay there. Shane would like to wait until
the lake would thaw to make it safer in
getting the pickup out if the Council didn’t
have a problem with that. Council agreed
it can stay until the conditions are right
to get it out of the lake.
Faith Stock Show:
Colt Haines, president of the Faith
Stock Show, approached the Council
about a temporary liquor license that is
available and would like to know what
needed to happen for them to apply for
it. Eric Bogue explained that the Council
would need to approve an ordinance or
resolution of how many per year that
would be available and other stipulations
with it and then Faith Stock Show could
apply for one. Bogue will check out what
is needed for sure before next meeting
and Council all agreed to go forward with
what is needed.
Faith Volunteer Fire Department:
Justin Haines, Fire Chief, told the
Council that another truck is needed and
they were looking at replacing a tender
truck and would help with keeping up on
the ISO. Justin stated that there would
be a couple of trucks they could get rid
of, but not sure if the City should or how
it needs to be done. Brown will check
into it. Council asked how much the Fire
Department needed for the truck. Justin
stated that they would like $10,000 from
the City and they would put in some of
their own money and there would have
to be some things added to the truck if
they received it. Riley made a motion,
seconded by Hellekson to approve giv-
ing $10,000 to the Fire Department for
the truck. All yes votes. Motion carried.
Justin asked if they didn’t purchase a
truck if the money could be used for
something else needed. Council stated
they would need to come back to the
Council and ask that to let them know
their plans. Mayor Haines wanted to clar-
ify with the Council if this is on top of their
already budgeted amount. Council
agreed it was above their budgeted
amount.
Recreation Center:
Some discussion has been held in
the community after the incident at the
lake happened about a place for kids to
go to for entertainment. Mayor Haines
has been discussing with some in town
and would like to see a Recreation Cen-
ter happen. Mayor Haines has checked
into a spot to rent, having pizza and
games and discussed with some kids if
they would utilize it if it were to happen
and they agreed. Mayor Haines stated
businesses and parents need to step for-
ward and help out. If a business and par-
ents took one night to work at the center,
it could work.
Aviation Fuel Quote:
We did not receive any quotes from
the advertisement for December 4, 2012
and February 4, 2013 so Locken Oil was
called for quotes on Aviation Fuel and
Jet A Fuel when needed. The following
quotes were received:
Locken Oil- Aviation Fuel – $0.47
over invoice
Locken Oil – Jet A Fuel – $0.47 over
invoice
Riley made motion, seconded by In-
ghram to accept the bids from Locken
Oil. All yes votes. Motion carried.
Portable Storage Truck for Jet A
Fuel:
Locken Oil has a fuel truck that they
could sell to the City of Faith for a
portable storage for Jet A Fuel. Insur-
ance Company was called to make sure
that will be okay and also checked with
someone to make sure the FAA would
be fine with it and all sounded fine. Joe
Locken needed to do some updates to
the pump on the truck and get back to
the City with a price.
Archery Area:
There is some interest in using the
archery area at Durkee Lake. Discussion
was held in regards to what needs to be
done.
Building Permit:
Rick Trainor submitted a building per-
mit for a pipe fence on School Addition
Lot 3-5, Block 3. Inghram made a mo-
tion, seconded by Riley to approve Rick
Trainor’s building permit for a pipe fence
on School Addition Lot 3-5, Block 3. Mo-
tion carried.
