The Faith City Council had a
full agenda for their May 14th
meeting. Members heard the pro-
posed summer activities, enter-
tainment committee report, and
opened bids for mowing.
Riley asked that a correction
be made to the May 7th minutes.
The minutes stated that Brittney
Ostrander would be a fill-in at the
swimming pool; she stated that
the pool committee recommenda-
tion was that she be hired full-
time if Maddy Vance was hired at
the Information Center. Debbie
said that the prior recommenda-
tion was that she would be a fill-
in so that was how she put it in
the minutes.
Donn Dupper had several
items in his report. The lagoon
and curbs need to be sprayed.
There are four lights at Durkee
that are being put out. A couple
years ago they offered a reward
for information on offenders and
he wondered if maybe they
wanted to do that again; it
seemed to help for quite awhile.
He had A-1 Sewer here to fix
some root problems, so there will
be a bill for $1,000. There are a
still a couple spots that need
work. The water tower needs to
be sandblasted and epoxied on
the interior. The pool has been
drained and the seal on the south

Gene Lund never went to high
school, but has always been a
strong suppporter. Sunday at
Faith High School’s Commence-
ment Gene was presented with an
Honorary Faith High School
Diploma.
Superintendent Elsie Baye
read these comments when pre-
senting the diploma:
Gene Lund was born in Faith
Feb. 22, 1915. In the Faith His-
tory Book Gene states, “I arrived
in the middle of the winter of 1915
in a little place called Faith, SD,
the product of a Norwegian father
and a German mother. Times
were hard and money was scarce
so in order to help support the
family, I milked cows morning
and night. The next step was
herding sheep. I followed them
around all day and slept with
them at night. After graduating
from this we ran beef cattle. My
mother died in 1919 when my
twin sisters were born. This left
my father with five small children
with no money and no mother. I
will never know how he managed
to keep the family together until
they grew up.”
Gene spent his life on the Lund
Family Farm about 8 miles
Southeast of Faith where he and
his Dad milked cows, raised cattle
and herded sheep eventually spe-
cializing in sheep and they were
among the best.
He loved the town of Faith and
never wanted to go anyplace else.
However, now at age 98 he lives at
West Hills Village in Rapid City.
Gene attended the Katt grade
school in Ziebach County and his
dad, Oscar Lund, drove the
“school bus”, which in 1924 was a
team and wagon, 32 miles each
day.
He enrolled in Faith High
School in 1932 by paying the Su-
perintendent $1.00 as a registra-
tion fee. After one day of high
school he decided he’d rather stay
home and herd sheep. He tried to
get a refund on the registration fee
but he’s still disappointed today
that he never did get his dollar
back. (Perhaps we should send
him that dollar).
Gene was a rancher, rodeo cow-
boy and always a supporter of ac-
tivities in Faith.
In July of 2007 he started the
Gene Lund Scholarship Fund for
Gene Lund receives Honorary Diploma
FHS seniors with a donation of
$200,000. Later on he added an-
other $100,000 to this amount to
bring the scholarship fund up to
$300,000.
When our new school was built,
Gene was the largest single con-
tributor donating a total of
$422,000 to the project. Upon
making the donation, Gene said,
“This should put us over the top
for that new building for our
Faith Kids and I’m happy to be a
part of it.”
In total Gene has donated
$722,000 towards the school and
its students. This does not include
the $5,000 that he and his wife do-
nated some years earlier for the li-
brary that was built adjacent to
the school.
For all that Gene Lund has
given to the Faith School District,
we proudly present him with an
Honorary Diploma this year.
Gene isn’t able to be here today to
accept this honor but he gra-
ciously accepts and we will make
sure he receives the diploma.
Morris Gustafson accepted the
diploma on behalf of Gene.

Letitia “Tish” Gustafson, age
86, of Faith, S.D., passed away on
Monday, May 13, 2013, at the
Belle Fourche Long Term Care
Center.
Letitia Mae Sorensen was born
on August 10, 1926, in Philip to
Sam and Artie (Mae Ramsey
Waddell) Sorensen. Tish grew up
on the family farm and attended
a rural one-room country school
and graduated from Philip High
School.
While working at the Haakon
County Courthouse in Philip,
Tish sold Delbert the license for
his jeep. He asked her to the St.
Patrick’s Day dance. Tish and
Gus were married in Rapid City
on July 20, 1946. They made their
first home in Philip, but moved to
many work sites throughout
South Dakota and finally to Faith
in 1952, raising their three chil-
dren, Gary, Morris and Jean.
While in Faith, Tish worked for
Drs. Dzintars and Dattilo, Hall
Lee’s Jack and Jill, and the Faith
Health Clinic. She also was a co-
owner of M & D Food Shop, and a
hostess at King’s Café and the
Wrangler Café.
Tish was a creative and in-
volved person with a quick wit
and sense of humor. She was a
member of the United Methodist
Church, American Legion Auxil-
iary, and Order of the Eastern
Star. She enjoyed reading, gar-
dening, puzzles, sports, card
games, quilting and entering con-
tests. Tish loved watching sports
and attended many events and
activities in which her children
and grandchildren participated.
Tish is survived by her son,
Morris (Marlene) Gustafson,
Faith; daughter, Jean (Joel) Er-
ickson, Plymouth, Minn.; grand-
children, Eric (Amber) Gustafson,
Alex (Candace) Gustafson, Abby
Gustafson, Philip Erickson,
Matthew Erickson, Tom Palmer
and Wayne Palmer; and great-
grandchildren, Audrina
Gustafson and Bryce Gustafson.
She was preceded in death by
her parents; her husband, Del-
bert, on July 16, 2012; son, Gary;
granddaughter, Hillary
Gustafson; brothers, Hiram Wad-
dell and Morris Sorensen; and sis-
ters, Eleanor Edwards and Doris

end is coming loose and there are
some chips out. Joe’s Sandblast-
ing will be coming to sandblast it
for around $5,000. Jon said they
have used Proseal on it in the
past but it builds up layers and
causes more problems. He
checked with Philip to see what
they use, but it’s quite expensive,
about $40,000 just for the prod-
uct. He thought maybe the Coun-
cil would want to budget
something in for next year. He
thought they should also use a
cover on the pool in the winter.
Donn said they have been trying
to contact Ainsworth-Benning to
come look at the pool but hasn’t
been successful. Debbie added
that they could use some new ta-
bles at the park, the shelter and
restrooms need painting, and the
restroom at the lake needs some
work.
Fire Chief Justin Haines had
their newest truck parked outside
for members to see. He said they
have 2 tenders, 5 grass fire trucks
and two pumpers. They are re-
quired to have two pumpers to
keep their ISO rating where it is.
Debbie told members that the
audit would be done the week of
June 24th.
Riley reported that some mem-
bers from Arrow Transit and here
went to the Meade Co. Commis-
sioners meeting to ask for help
with funding to keep the bus serv-
icing our area. The county cut
funding recently and the bus no
longer stops in Faith for local res-
idents to ride to the Hills.
Council approved Fordyce’s
use of the fairgrounds livestock
building for a wedding dance on
July 27th. They aren’t sure about
a bar for the dance yet, they may
have the Faith Stock Show han-
dle it, rather than the city.
Council also approved use of
the fairgrounds for two ropings
this summer, in June and August.
Debbie had visited with Angel
Kennedy earlier about the fall
craft fair. Angel was wondering if
she could just rent the building
and do it herself rather than the
city paying her to do it. Council
discussed how vendor licenses
would work then. If they call it a
community event it wouldn’t re-
quire the licenses. Council ap-
proved Angel renting the building
and doing it herself.
Bids were opened at 7:00 for
the mowing of city property. Sev-
eral bids were received for the
separate areas advertised. Tyler
Fisher and Carrie Collins re-
ceived the bid for mowing at the
community center/public safety
building at $100 each time. They
also had the low bid for mowing
the park and tennis court, $120
each time; and the cemetery for
$425 each time. Bids were also re-
ceived from Bret and Kari Han-
son, Doron Shaff, and Matt
Helms. The one bid for cleaning
the restrooms at the park was re-
jected, so the city crew will con-
tinue doing it.
Jason Reed came before Coun-
cil to explain about the retaining
wall he would like to put up
around the Reed plots at the
cemetery. He would like to fill in
with dirt on the hillside north of
their plots and put in a 30’ long-
wall. The wall won’t interfere
with any access to other graves
and would make the plots more
usable. Reeds have four plots
there now and he is willing to
purhase the other remaining ones
or the city could give them to him
to help offset the improvement he
wants to make, either was fine
with him. After more discussion,
Council approved him purchasing
three of the 8 plots and they give
him the others, a couple are of no
use.
Corinna Thompson, in her ca-
pacity at the Faith Information
Center, has been busy working on
ideas for summer activities for
the community. Plans are to show
outdoor family movies at the
Community Center every Wed-
nesday night. They have the
sheet for the wall, but may need
to work on a better projector. She
was in contact with the Shrine
Circus but they won’t be coming
here this summer. She also has
been working on getting the Tex-
aco Country Showdown here.
This doesn’t cost anything if you
have someone to sponsor it for the
advertising. Tentative plans are
to have a good old-fashioned
“Blast from the Past” Apprecia-
tion Day like Faith used to have,
complete with rummage sales,
craft fair, sidewalk sales and door
prize drawings by the businesses
on Main Street, with the Texaco
Country Showdown that evening.
Activities for the 4th of July are
still being planned: golf, softball
tournament, etc. She would like
to see the businesses show a little
pride in their community and
plant flowers in planters in front
of their business. Debbie said
most businesses have planters
from Horizons but many didn’t
take care of them last year and it
was too hot so they didn’t do well.
Barb Berndt said that there are
videos of the plays that were pre-
sented here that would be nice to
show at their outdoor movies.
Corinna said she will check into
that.
Debbie reported that the Spe-
cial Entertainment Committee
has been working on some activi-
ties for Stock Show beings we
won’t be having a carnival this
year. She visited with the Na-
tional Guard and they have sev-
eral “toys” they could bring and
set up for a few days. They are
also thinking about other events
on Main Street, mechanical bull,
food vendors, games and kids
train among them. They will be
having the car show again. They
may also have the gun show, and
possibly a free barbecue under
the tent. The Senior Citizen Cen-
ter would like to have a Pie Social
under the tent for a fundraiser.
Council will get quotes for
spraying weeds at the lagoon, the
curbs in town, and possibly at the
lake.
Mayor Haines asked if they
wanted to get started on any ordi-
naces for the expected pipeline,
although it will be at least an-
other year. The only thing they
really need to decide is how much
distance should be allowed be-
tween campers. Debbie said there
is no ordinance but they always
figure at least 6-8’. Riley thought
they should have at least 20’ to
allow for fire trucks, etc. Any ex-
isting lots would be grandfa-
thered in so the ordinance
wouldn’t affect them. Some mem-
bers thought this wasn’t fair to
new lot owners as it would limit
the number of units they could
have. Lightfield asked if there
was any ordinance on parking in
the City Park. Debbie said there
wasn’t and also no time frame.
Council approved having Atty.
Bogue draw up an ordinance.
Council has been discussing
purchasing a fuel truck for Jet A
fuel out at the airport. There will
be a SEAT plane stationed here
this summer, with 2 or 3 guys and
they need the fuel. Mayir Haines
said they could purchase a 2000
gallon truck from Locken Oil for
$3500, but it would need to be cer-
tified first, and Locken didn’t
know how much that would cost.
Council discussed what would
happen if he got it certified and
they decided not to take it. Or
does the City have to pay to have
it done? If they found something
drastically wrong with it if they
could stop the certification
process right then. They tabled
this for further information.
Council will hold a spcial meet-
ing on Monday, May 20th to meet
with the school board on the safe
room grant, also with pool staff.
Council approved having half
the swimming pool sandblasted
this year, and the rest next year.
Resolution #05-14-13-01
for transfers was approved, as
was Ordinance 305 for the
$10,000 budgeted to the fire de-
partment.
South Dakota will be reducing
extended unemployment compen-
sation (EUC) benefits by 16.8 per-
cent as part of the federal
sequestration cuts required by
the Budget Control Act of 2011.
This reduction does not impact
the 26 weeks of state unemploy-
ment benefits. It does affect all
claimants filing for EUC benefits
beginning the week of June 2,
2013, and ending the week of
Sept. 28, 2013, approximately 275
claimants.
“Individuals will still be eligi-
ble for up to 14 weeks of extended
benefits,” said State Labor and
Regulation Secretary Pam
Roberts. “However, it will be a re-
duced benefit amount for those
extended weeks.”
A notice of the upcoming re-
duction will be mailed to all
claimants who have an active
EUC claim as of May 13.
Amended monetary determina-
tions will be sent the first week of
June.
Unemployment insurance pro-
vides temporary financial assis-
Sequestration reduces extended unemployment
benefits
tance for people who have lost
their jobs, through no fault of
their own, until they find other
employment. South Dakota's un-
employment insurance program
is financed by employers through
payroll taxes; workers do not con-
tribute to this plan.

Central Meade County re-
ceived over an inch of rain last
week which has really helped this
ranching community. A big
'thank you' goes out to those who
prayed for rain.
The rain didn't dampen the op-
portunity for over 20 Faith High
School track athletes to qualify
for the state track meet to be held
this weekend in Sioux Falls.
Caden Smiley will be participat-
ing in high jump and three relays.
Reggie Rhoden qualified in high
jump and the 110 m hurdles,
while Paige Brink qualified in
long jump. Brooke, Bailly, and
Brandi Enright will run in a 4
x100m relay together. Having
three siblings on a team at the
state meet is very special and
unique. Brandi Enright also qual-
ified in high jump while Bailly
will be running the 110m hurdles.
Chaney Keffeler qualified in long
jump and some relays as well.
Those named are Union Center
track alumni and we wish them
all the best this weekend.
Saturday turned out to be a
beautiful day for many occasions.
Leo and Deb Schnell hosted a
graduation reception for their
son, Cory. Family and friends
from Sioux Falls, Rapid City,
Brookings, and Madison, along
with two California residents
traveled to Sturgis to celebrate
Cory's high school graduation.
A special occasion for many
friends and family to celebrate
was the marriage of Bob Barry
and Yvonne Cammack. They
were married on Saturday after-
noon, May 18, during a private
ceremony in Sturgis. Pastor Wes
Labrier officiated the ceremony.
It was followed by a wedding re-
ception at Lamphere Ranch that
evening. The happy couple
headed to Florida on Sunday
night to spend their honeymoon
aboard a cruise ship.
Many family and friends
turned out on Sunday for Faith's
high school graduation. Paige
Brink was the recipient of several
scholarships so she is to be com-
mended on a job well done. Some
were amused as 6' 7" Reggie Rho-
den marched down the aisle with
Shania Heidler, who stands 5'
tall. Caden Smiley's plan is to at-
tend Frontier School of the Bible,
while Paige Brink and Reg Rho-
den plan to attend Black Hills
State University this fall. Collin
Wilcox drove to his high school
graduation in Sturgis that was
also held on Sunday at 2:00 pm.
The Central Meade County
Community Center will celebrate
20 years this summer. The time
has gone by quickly. It all started
with a conversation between my-
self and Betty Bennet during a
wrestling practice in the school
basement where I taught. Having
a physical education major and a
son who was beginning his sports
activities, I was expressing my
thoughts to her about the need for
a facility for our kids. After a pre-
vious failed attempt through the
school district, we decided it was
time for a facility to accommodate
both sports and community activ-
ities. We put together a list of
community members from differ-
ent areas of Central Meade
County who might be interested
in being on a steering committee.
Some weren't interested or didn't
have time, some didn't think
there was a need for such a build-
ing, and a few were very inter-
ested. Those who showed up for
the first steering committee meet-
ing at our home were those who
stuck with the project and worked
tirelessly for two years, until the
building was paid for and ready to
use. It was an intense, but very
rewarding community project.
Some, like Cheryl Hammerstrom
and Gary Cammack, continued
on the board for many years.
Those who have served on the
building committee and the board
of directors throughout the years
are to be commended for the great
care this building has been given.
The CMCCC has been utilized to
the fullest and has changed our
community for the better. Soon
we will be wishing our Central
Meade County Community Cen-
ter a very happy 20th birthday!
Rain!! We had a thunderstorm
move through here after midnight
Wednesday morning for about 1/2
hour, giving us around .30”.
Thursday morning started out
wet but didn’t do much more. Al-
though it remained cloudy all
day, it didn’t drop any more rain.
We got some pretty good showers
Friday night and most of Satur-
day. I understand we had around
1 1/4” by Sunday morning, and
it’s still raining as of Monday af-
ternoon.
Condolences to the family of
Tish Gustafson. Tish passed away
last week Monday and her service
was held this past Monday. Tish
was always such a bubbly lady,
she loved to visit. She will be
missed by many.
Condolences also to the family
of Dean Allen. He passed away
last week and his service is this
Thursday in Sturgis. Dean and
his wife Elaine ranched in the
Opal area for many years.
Dave and Eldora Fischbach
drove to Pierre last Tuesday so he
could attend a meeting, then on
Thursday they went to Rapid
City. Brother Michael Fischbach
from Kansas spent several days
visiting family last week. Dave
and Eldora picked him up at the
airport in Rapid City Friday.
Dave and Mike went to the ranch
Saturday and spent a few days,
probably couldn’t get out by Sun-
day. Michael flew back home
again on Tuesday.
Lyle and Arlene Beebe, from
Diamondville, WY spent a few
days in Faith last week. They
went back to Wyoming on Sun-
day.
Gladys Peterson celebrated her
94th birthday on May 10th. Her
represents the spirit and charac-
ter of cheerleading, is voted upon
by the other cheerleaders. Appre-
ciate the thoughtfulness, Lori.
Alcoholics Anonymous wel-
comes anyone with a drinking
problem to join them Monday
nights at the Faith Christian
Center, and at St. Joseph
Catholic Church each Thursday,
at 7:00 pm.

to go to Lonny’s for dinner and
enjoy birthday cake at Gladys’
later that evening. Belated happy
birthday, Gladys!
Marilynn Aasheim is spending
time here visiting her mother
Gladys Peterson. They were get-
ting caught up on visiting and a
few projects they wanted to do.
JoAnn Jensen stopped by for a
visit one day. Jim and Janice
Selby also came over to visit.
Paul and I attended gradua-
tion in Sturgis on Sunday for
granddaughter Brooke, and “step
granddaughter” Brittany, her
older sister. Of course, Wes,
Melissa and Jeremy, Nick and his
girlfriend, were also in atten-
dance, along with great aunt El-
dora and second cousin Eric.
There were around 150 graduates
and it only took 45 minutes! They
had a big party for the two girls
afterwards. I saw my old friend,
Mary Ann Stapert, at the party.
I shouldn’t say old, we’re not old;
it’s just that she lived here many
years ago and we used to hang
out together in our younger days!
She’s married to the girls’ uncle. I
think De and Kay King had a
granddaughter graduating Sun-
day too. It seems like the girls
graduated together as 8th
graders.
Lori Lemmel sent Paul and I
the article and photos on Brooke
that was in the Meade County
Times on her receiving the Mary
Quail Award for Outstanding
Cheerleader. This award, which
Wednesday, Jim and Vonnie
O'Dea went to Rapid for appoint-
ments and grocery shopping for
branding.
O'Deas went to the play in
Philip on Thursday night.
"Bubba's Revenge" was a real
good play and the people in it did
a wonderful job!
Garrett and Lowell Schweitzer
and George Harris came from
Gillette, and Mary, Rachel, and
Michael Deichert from Spearfish
on Friday for branding on Satur-
day. The wonderful rain came
later in the evening and branding
went on as planned on Saturday.
The Deicherts left after branding
to get ready for graduation at
Spearfish on Sunday.
Jim and Vonnie O'Dea, Garrett
and Lowell Schweiter, and Amy
Deichert went to church Sunday
morning and then headed to
Spearfish to Michael Deichert's
graduation. Troy Wilcox met Amy
and all attended the party at
Susan's for Michael. Now for
some rest!

Grand River Roundup
By Betty Olson
Control weeds naturally
Weeds are a problem faced by
everyone who enjoys gardening.
When we prepare the soil to make
a good home for our garden
plants, we also create ideal condi-
tions for weeds to thrive.
So what’s a gardener to do
about weeds? We can smother ex-
isting weeds when creating new
planting beds, but despite our
best efforts, weed seeds will al-
ways be blowing into the beds.
Now there’s a natural product
available that helps prevent weed
seeds from growing in the garden,
and surprisingly, it is made from
corn. Corn gluten is a byproduct
of the wet-milling process and has
traditionally been used in cattle
and poultry feed and dog food. It
was discovered entirely by acci-
dent that corn gluten can also be
used to prevent weed seeds from
germinating. Not only can it sup-
press weeds, but it will also help
feed your garden plants since it is
also a source of nitrogen. A huge
benefit is that corn gluten won’t
harm pets, people, birds or in-
sects, making it very safe to use.
Corn gluten works by prevent-
ing germinated seeds from grow-
ing a root. A plant that has
already grown roots will not be af-
fected by corn gluten. For the best
results, the corn gluten should be
applied early in the season, before
the weed seeds germinate and
grow roots. As a pre-emergent
herbicide, corn gluten tends to
have a cumulative effect and be-
comes even more effective on
weed seeds with repeated applica-
tions over time. One application
of corn gluten continues to sup-
press weeds for 4-6 weeks, a bit
less if the weather is unusually
rainy or hot.
Corn gluten is typically applied
by broadcasting it on the growing
bed at a rate of 20-40 pounds per
1000 square feet. It may then be
lightly raked into just the surface
of the soil and watered in. Corn
gluten will not be effective unless
it is wetted and should be given a
gentle shower after being applied.
However, if there is a long rainy
period after the corn gluten has
been applied, it may lose its effec-
tiveness. As with any herbicide, it
can wash away, and weed
seedlings may even recover and
begin again to form roots if the
soil surface remains wet for an
extended time. Keep an eye on
the weather and apply the corn
gluten when no rain is expected
for a few days. Always follow the
instructions on the package when
applying any herbicide or fertil-
izer. Corn gluten will not harm
mature plants and can be safely
used in an existing flowerbed,
vegetable garden or potted plants.

The Garden Gate
By Karen Englehart, Master Gardener,
SDSU Extension - Perkins Co.
It finally rained! As I write this
on Monday we’ve already received
2.67 inches and a gentle rain con-
tinues. You’ve never seen so
many happy ranchers and farm-
ers; everybody’s smiling. Greg
Url- acher said it feels just like we
all won the lottery and never had
to buy a ticket!
I drove to Pierre Sunday after-
noon for an Executive Board
meeting early Monday morning
and then stayed overnight to par-
ticipate in the west river Agricul-
ture and Natural Resources
Legislative Tour that began Tues-
day morning. The first stop for
the bus was Oahe Downstream to
check out the recovery after the
flooding a couple years ago. I fol-
lowed the bus from there to
Stoneville where we visited Cam-
mack’s buffalo ranch.
Despite high winds, the
Wildlife Services predator control
pilot gave us an impressive
demonstration by shooting bal-
loons on the ground from the air.
Veteran GF&P trapper Dan Tur-
geon showed us the many differ-
ent devices and methods he uses
to control coyotes, beavers, prairie
dogs, and nuisance animals. He
also told the group about the
plane crash he was involved in
that came close to killing him and
the state pilot he was hunting
with. Thankfully they lived
through it, but it certainly
demonstrates just how dangerous
his job can be.
This session my bill passed to
increase the existing surcharge
on hunting licenses by one dollar
to help fund the Animal Damage
Control program services. This
revenue has allowed GF&P to in-
crease existing staff time ex-
pended on predator control and
has enabled the department to
provide additional funding to
local predator control districts.
GF&P will provide the USDA-WS
with funding for an additional
100 hours of aerial predator con-
trol to help offset the budget im-
pacts due to the federal budget
sequester.
House Ag Chairman Charlie
Hoffman and other livestock pro-
ducers in McPherson County
have just formed a new predator
control district to control their
predators. GF&P recently hired a
trapper for Perkins County and
plans to hire another trapper to
help in Dan Turgeon’s district.
GF&P removed 2,456 coyotes
from July 2012 to April 2013 and
the WS plane flew 501 hours and
removed 1,578 coyotes. Casey
hasn’t had much time to hunt this
week, but he did eliminate one
coyote Friday morning!
I left my car at Union Center
and boarded the bus to tour the
Wharf gold mine near Lead,
Pactola Reservoir, and Rushmore
Forest Products sawmill at Hill
City. Rep. Jacgue Sly and Rep.
Mike Verchio joined us for supper
at Prairie Berry Winery that
evening and then we boarded the
bus to spend the night at Creek-
side Lodge in Custer State Park.
Wednesday morning we toured
the park and a mountain pine
beetle site before Wildland Fire
Suppression Division Director
Jay Esperance had his fire fight-
ers and helicopter pilots give us
an impressive wildland fire
demonstration. That afternoon
former Rep. Mark Hollenbeck
joined us at Edgemont to tour the
Dewey-Burdock in-situ uranium
recovery project in Custer and
Fall River counties. I sure hope
they are getting some of this
moisture down there because
Mark’s ranch looked even drier
than the country up here.
We ended the tour at the new
GF&P Outdoor Campus where
Tony Leif let us sample some de-
licious fried mountain lion. And
no, it didn’t taste like chicken,
more like fat pork! Several of the
Rapid City area legislators joined
us for a prime rib supper and
then we headed home.
Saturday was busy. Reub and
I swung through the Cadillac
Ranch at Belle to drop off a wed-
ding gift for Gail Gabriel and
Shane Garner’s wedding and then
drove to Sturgis to visit Jess and
Bill Marty at the hospital before
going to our grandson Till’s grad-
uation party at the auditorium
and his sister Brinley’s surprise
birthday party at the bowling
alley. Thad and Angie hosted
both parties. Guy and Megan’s
family came from Gillette and
Sage and Alaina and girls drove
down from Dickinson.
Sunday morning, Slim Buttes
Lutheran welcomed Patsy
Wilkinson, Margretta Hanson,
Eric Schuchard, Bill and Verona
Vroman, and Tony and Dorothy
Holt into our church family when
they officially joined the church.
After cake and coffee following
the service, Reub and I drove
back to Sturgis for Till’s gradua-
tion and all of Casey and Missy’s
family were able to attend too.
Graduations were held at al-
most every school in the area this
weekend and with all the parties,
celebrations, and the much
needed moisture, we’ve had an
absolutely wonderful week!
President Obama’s week didnít
go nearly as well. Obama and his
administration have been dealing
with the fallout from three major
scandals this week and even the
mainstream media is starting to
get over their love affair with
him. The media could overlook
four Americans dying at Beng-
hazi and the IRS targeting
Obama’s political opponents, but
when the media found out that
his administration was spying on
the Associated Press and tape
recording conversations between
reporters and Congress it caused
even MSNBC Chris Matthew’s to
lose that ‘tingle up his leg’ and
start reporting on the scandals
and the cover up.
That reminded me of this story
about a ‘Lie Clock’ that several of
you sent me:
A man died and went to
heaven. As he stood in front of St.
Peter's desk at the Pearly Gates,
he saw a huge wall of clocks be-
hind him. He asked, "What are all
those clocks there for?"
St. Peter answered, "Those are
Lie Clocks. Everyone on Earth
has a Lie Clock. Every time you
lie the hands on your clock will
move."
"Oh," said the man, "whose
clock is that?"
"That's Mother Teresa's. The
hands have never moved, indicat-
ing that she never told a lie."

Continued from Page 6
"Incredible," said the man.
"And whose clock is that one?"
St. Peter responded, "That's
George Washington's clock. The
hands have moved twice, telling
us that Washington told only two
lies in his entire life."
"Where's Barack Obama's
clock?" asked the man.
"Obama's clock is in Jesus' of-
fice. He's using it as a ceiling fan."

rial Day Ceremony will be held at

Background: Memorial Day is
a federal holiday observed on the
last Monday of May (May 27 in
2013). Formerly known as Deco-
ration Day, it commemorates U.S.
soldiers who died while in the
military service. First enacted to
honor Union and Confederate sol-
diers following the American
Civil War, it was extended after
World War I to honor Americans
who have died in all wars.
Natl Cemetery The preferred
name for the holiday gradually
changed from "Decoration Day" to
"Memorial Day," which was first
used in 1882. It did not become
more common until after World
War II, and was not declared the
official name by Federal law until
1967. On June 28, 1968, the Con-
gress passed the Uniform Holi-
days Bill, which moved three
holidays from their traditional
dates to a specified Monday in
order to create a convenient
three-day weekend. The holidays
included Washington's Birthday,
Veterans Day and Memorial Day.
The change moved Memorial Day
from its traditional May 30 date
to the last Monday in May. The
law took effect at the federal level
in 1971.
Many Americans observe Me-
morial Day by visiting cemeteries
and memorials. A national mo-
ment of remembrance takes place
at 3 p.m. local time. Many people
also observe the tradition of flying
the flag of the United States at
half-staff from dawn until noon
local time.

ers and fun activities.  This year’s
theme is “Dig into Reading” from
the nationally developed curricu-
lum CSLP (Collaborative Sum-
mer Library Program).  The
curriculum is developed by a
group of librarians and an artist.
It is split into three different age
groups and themes with activities
for the following age groups: Chil-
dren’s – “Dig into Reading”; Teens
– “Beneath the Surface”; and
Adults – “Ground Breaking
Reads”.  Activities include discov-
ering literature with history,
math, science and art.
The Faith Public/School Li-
brary will host the three different
programs, which will meet at var-
ious times for each group.  The
Children’s Program for Preschool
to 5th grade will start on May 28
@ 9:00 – 11:00 AM and will con-
tinue on every Tuesday and
Thursday till June 27.  On Thurs-
day, May 30, Puppet entertainer

stories through her delightful
puppet characters during the
children’s summer reading pro-
gram meeting time.    South

Speakers, Tass Thacker and
Bruce Junek from “Images of the
World” will join us on June 25 at
the library for the Children’s Pro-
gram then again in the evening at
the Community Center – 6 PM for
everyone.  Tass and Bruce will

that have traveled from places in
Peru to biking across China and
many other historical sites.
Starting on June 3 through July
29, , the Adult Summer Reading
Program will be meeting every
Monday from 6-8 PM.  Adults can
join us for Book Talks, craft/art
activities, speakers and the enjoy-
ment of discussing books.  Start-
ing June 4 through July 30, teens

PM and participate in the Teen

The HOP (Hands on Partner-
ship) Light and Color Exhibit will
be visiting the library throughout
the month of June.  Visit the li-
brary with your family and learn

bring images to life.  Activities in-
cluded in this exhibit are: The
Rainbow Effect; Color Vision
Test; Spinning Color Disks;
Periscope, Holograms, Laser In-
teraction Table and many more.
The HOP Traveling Exhibits

In partnership with the South
Dakota Department of Education
(DOE), the South Dakota Bureau
of Information and Telecommuni-
cations (BIT) will work through-
out the summer to increase
bandwidth to 159 school sites
across the state, impacting 122
school districts.
“We continue to see a trend of
K-12 bandwidth doubling every 2-
3 years. This increase in service
corresponds directly with that
trend,” stated Pat Snow telecom-
munications manager. “We are
proud to assist with this project
upgrade as this is a great im-
provement; allowing educators to
continue enhancing educational
services through the Internet.”
The bare minimum of Internet
bandwidth is 10 Mbps, or
megabits per second. Funding
was approved and appropriated
to DOE this past legislative ses-
sion to increase the bandwidth
minimum to 50 Mbps where
available across the state. The
upgrade allows for additional ca-
pacity to provide education-re-
lated services via the Internet;
through online applications and
assessments, distance learning
and allows schools to do so with-
out delay.
The project is currently in its
implementation phase and is ex-
pected to be completed prior to
the 2013-2014 school year.
“In today's classrooms, teach-
ers incorporate technology on a
daily basis as part of the learning
process, and they need to be con-
fident that the technology will
work,” concluded Secretary of Ed-
ucation Melody Schopp. “This
bandwidth initiative will help to
ensure that we have the infra-
structure in place to support
learning.”
State of South Dakota increases
bandwidth to over 150 schools

What is the best reason why
you should buckle up...EVERY
TRIP! EVERY TIME! NO...it’s
not just to avoid a ticket. It’s the
easiest and quickest way to save
your life should you ever be in a
vehicle crash. If all passenger ve-
hicle occupants, age 5 and older,
had worn their seatbelts, an addi-
tion 3,341 lives could have been
saved!
The goal for the 2013 Click It
or Ticket Highway Safety cam-
paign has three simple steps to
save lives:
*Enforce seatbelt laws.
*Educate drivers and passen-
gers.
*Increase seatbelt use.
Seat belt use in 2012 reached
86 percent, up from 84 percent in
2011 according to the National
Occupant Protection Use Survey.
Here’s a few facts about why
YOU should CLICK IT:
•Seatbelts keep you behind the
wheel if you have to swerve or
Click It or Ticket
brake suddenly.
•Seatbelts limit body move-
ment keeping you in better con-
trol of your vehicle.
•While you may be a safe
driver, everyone may not be as re-
sponsible as you. Seatbelts pro-
tect you from drivers who are not
driving responsibly. The safest
place to be in a crash is IN your
vehicle. Your seatbelt will help
keep you there.
•By wearing your seatbelt,
your internal organs are better
protected in case of a crash. Seat-
belt use will limit how much your
body is impacted.

It or Ticket mobilization, please

This year, passage of a long-
term, comprehensive Food, Farm
and Jobs Bill is critical to provid-
ing certainty for U.S. producers.
This includes the continued avail-
ability of conservation programs
that give our farmers, ranchers
and private foresters the means
to conserve the soil, protect our
water and sustain America’s nat-
ural resources.
Thanks to programs provided
by the Farm Bill, USDA has been
able to enroll a record number of
private lands in conservation
practices. Over the past four
years, we have worked with more
than 500,000 producers, landown-
ers and private foresters on proj-
ects that help the environment,
while providing a new source of
income.
From May 20 to June 14,
USDA is holding the 45th Gen-
eral Signup under the Conserva-
tion Reserve Program – another
important effort provided by a
Food, Farm and Jobs Bill.
The program saves hundreds
of millions of pounds of nitrogen
and phosphorous from flowing
into water sources. It provides
valuable wildlife habitat, and
hunting opportunities that help
rural communities generate eco-
nomic benefits from outdoor
recreation. In times of severe
drought, conservation lands can
provide additional forage land for
ranchers.
Such programs also provide
the base from which USDA is ex-
panding new opportunities in con-
servation and outdoor recreation.
– an important cornerstone of
President Obama’s plan to revi-
talize the rural economy.
At USDA, we are taking a wide
variety of steps to help achieve
this goal. Today we’re developing
new ways for producers to earn
income through conservation
measures. We’re undertaking
new efforts to help communities
create jobs through outdoor recre-
ation. And we are expanding new
partnerships between the govern-
ment and landowners, to ensure
that land stewardship is recog-
nized and rewarded.
A robust Conservation Title in
a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill im-
pacts all of these efforts.
While Congress extended the
Farm Bill conservation programs
in January, they will expire once
again in September. However,
conservation is a long-term un-
dertaking that requires farmers,
ranchers and forest landowners
to plan years into the future.
That’s why a one year exten-
sion of the Food, Farm and Jobs
Bill doesn’t work and why we
need a long-term bill. Like farm-
ers, ranchers and forest owners,
we at USDA take the long view
and so we’ll continue working
with Congress to get a five-year
bill Food, Farm and Jobs Bill
passed.

Question: What is the differ-
ence between Social Security dis-
ability and Supplemental
Security Income (SSI) disability?
Answer: Social Security ad-
ministers two major programs
that pay disability benefits. Social
Security Disability Insurance
(SSDI) payments are based on
your work and earnings, while
SSI disability payments are
based on financial need. Both dis-
ability programs require that you
have a severe medical impair-
ment or combination of impair-
ments that prevents you from
working for at least a year or is
expected to result in death.
Social Security taxes are paid
by workers, employers, and self-
employed persons. These taxes
fund disability benefits under
SSDI. To be eligible for a Social
Security benefit, you must earn
enough credits to be insured. We
pay disability benefits to blind or
disabled workers, widow(er)s, or
adults disabled since childhood
who are otherwise eligible.  We
base monthly disability benefits
on the Social Security earnings
record of the insured worker.
SSI is a program financed
through general revenues, not So-
cial Security taxes.  We pay SSI
disability benefits to adults or
children who are disabled or
blind, have limited income and re-
sources, meet the living arrange-
ment requirements, and are
otherwise eligible. For more infor-
mation, visit our website at
www.socialsecurity.gov.

When the kindergarteners
from Platte-Geddes Elementary
School visit the Great Plains Zoo
and Delbridge Museum of Natu-
ral History on Friday, April 26,
they’ll finally get to meet the
“wild child” that inspired them to
become pint-sized philanthro-
pists.
Earlier this year, teachers at
the school came up with a learn-
ing project that focused on the 18
endangered animals at the Zoo.
After each of the three kinder-
garten classes selected an endan-
gered animal, they made
persuasive videos about the ani-
mal encouraging the entire school
– kindergarten through sixth
grade – to vote for their favorite.
Although students could have
voted for a Black Rhino or a Snow
Leopard, it was the Red Panda’s
cuteness that won the majority
over.
But, the project didn’t end
there. The kindergarteners then
set out to adopt a Red Panda at
the Zoo by organizing fundrais-
ers. They hosted a Penny War
with each classroom competing to
win a root beer float party. Then
the kindergarteners became en-
trepreneurs, selling “panda trail
mix” to everyone in the school. In
the end, students raised $1,000,
securing an animal adoption at
the highest level – the Zoo Am-
bassador level.
Red Pandas are part of the
Zoo’s endangered species breed-
ing program. This species faces a
tenuous future; fewer than 10,000
Red Pandas survive in the wild.
The forests they inhabit are
shrinking due to logging and the
spread of agriculture.
“One of our responsibilities as
the Zoo is to continually inspire
and educate kids about the world
around them and what they can
do to preserve the natural world,”
said Elizabeth A. Whealy, CEO
and President of the Great Plains
Zoo. “We are thrilled that these
kids are so tuned in to conserva-
tion and exploring different ways
they can help save species like the
Red Panda.”
The Great Plains Zoo and Del-
bridge Museum of Natural His-
tory is open daily from 9 a.m. to 7
p.m. with the last admission at 6
p.m. Visit the Zoo online at
www.greatzoo.org or call 605-367-
7003 for more information.

There are several keys to suc-
cessful shelterbelts. Select the
right site and location to accom-
plish the intended purpose. Eval-
uate the soils map and slope
conditions for site limitations.
Design the orientation and
length, so as to protect the in-
tended area without causing
problems in adjacent areas. The
planned width between rows
should be suitable for tree species
and the equipment to be used for
maintenance. Select species that
are proven to do well on the soils,
growth rates to provide protection
soon enough, mature heights to
protect a big enough area and
longevity for dependability for the
future. Make plans for long-term
weed control by using mechanical
methods, mulches and chemicals.
Site preparation for shelterbelts
is very important. The best time
to begin weed control is prior to
planting. Perform deep tillage 9”-
12” deep one year prior to plant-
ing to reduce weeds and bank soil
moisture. Clean cultivate the en-
tire site or 8’ – 10’ strips for each
row and / or use herbicides to
keep the site or strips for rows
weed free. Limit spring tillage to
a light disc or harrow to remove
new annuals and save moisture.
When designing and selecting
species for shelterbelts, plan for 5
or more rows for primary protec-
tion from the north and west and
2-3 rows for secondary protection
from the south and east. Include
at least 1 row of evergreen species
and at least 1 row of fast growing
broadleaf species. Ensure that
snow accumulation does not
crush or break down leeward
rows by planting tree and shrub
species that are best suited for
leeward rows. It is also important
to select species that are adapted
to our area and USDA Hardiness
Zone.
Good care and maintenance of
your shelterbelt will result years
of good service. Weed control and
soil moisture retention are critical
and related to long-term survival.
Weeds can use most of the avail-
able moisture and greatly reduce
tree seedling growth and sur-
vival. Mechanical weed control is
very effective at bringing weed
seeds to the soil surface for germi-
nation and controlling annual
weeds. Several cultivations dur-
ing the growing season are very
important to decrease competi-
tion to the trees and shrubs. Care
should be taken not to cultivate
too deep as tree roots may be
damaged. Perennial weeds should
be sprayed with herbicides and
allowed time to die before cultiva-
tion.
The use of weed control fabric
has become very common with
shelterbelts in the last twenty
years. It acts as a physical barrier
to weed emergence, prevents sun-
light from reaching germinating
weed seeds and conserves mois-
ture. It is important to either do
tillage or mowing between the
rows several times during the
growing season. Otherwise,
weeds can grow big with roots
reaching underneath the fabric
robbing moisture from the trees.
Make plans to enlarge holes in
the fabric around trees in 5+years
and/or fabric removal after 10+
years.
Herbicides can be used to effec-
tively control problem weeds, es-
pecially perennials. Use of
pre-emergent and post emergent
herbicides along the edge of weed
control fabric eliminates strips of
weeds left from tillage and it is
possible to eliminate weeds be-
tween trees and growing through
the slits next to the trees. It is
possible to control many annual
weeds and save some moisture
with pre-emergent herbicides
without the use of weed control
fabric in the rows of shelterbelts.
A 4 foot wide band of herbicide is
sprayed directly over the row
after the killing frost in the au-
tumn when trees are dormant.
After 4-5 years and the trees are
established and too big to spray
over, use of pre-emergent herbi-
cides can be stopped.
Shelterbelts can be damaged
by livestock and upland wildlife.
Construction and maintenance of
appropriate protective fence
should be done as needed. In
some situations the use of tree
protectors and wildlife repellents
may also be warranted.
