The third season of free weekly
tours at the South Dakota Gover-
nor’s Mansion will begin next
month.
First Lady Linda Daugaard
said she and the Governor are
happy to again open the home on
the shore of Capitol Lake to the
public.
“This home was built not only
as a place for governors and their
families to live, but also as a
South Dakota showcase for others
to enjoy,” Mrs. Daugaard said.
“We are pleased to welcome those
who wish to take the tour.”
Tickets for mansion tours must
be obtained in advance from the
Pierre Chamber of Commerce.
Beginning June 5, weekly public
tours will be conducted each
Wednesday in June, July, and
August (with the exception of
July 3; no tour that week because
of the pending July 4 holiday).
The 30-minute tours, for
groups up to 30 people, will begin
Attorney General Marty Jack-
ley today warned consumers to
watch for emails that claim to be
from the Walmart Corporation,
but are actually scams designed
to obtain personal identifying in-
formation. The Attorney Gen-
eral’s Consumer Protection
Division has received many ex-
amples of these email messages
from across the state. The email
claims that a recent purchase
from walmart.com was
being processed and shipped to
another address.
“Consumers using online shop-
ping should be on the lookout for
scam artists trying to obtain their
personal information for identity
theft,” said Jackley. “Avoid unso-
licited emails and the links that
are attached and take the extra
step to contact the retailer di-
rectly with any questions.”
The true Walmart website is
www.walmart.com, but the look-
alike sites which use a few differ-
ent keystrokes, such as
Governor’s Mansion tours to resume
Attorney General’s office warns of phishing
scam targeting shoppers
at 10 a.m. CDT, 11 a.m., 1 p.m.,
and 2 p.m., and will be conducted
by volunteers, including the First
Lady.
Public tour tickets, at no
charge, must be obtained in ad-
vance and will be available only
from the Pierre Chamber of Com-
merce.
Those people interesting in at-
tending a tour should call the
Chamber of Commerce at 605-
224-7361. 
South Dakota’s Highway Pa-
trol used the Memorial Day travel
weekend to kick off “Obey the
Sign and Avoid the Fine,’’ a sum-
mer-long safe-travel campaign.
The campaign is an initiative
to reduce highway crashes and in-
crease safety on South Dakota’s
roadways, says Col. Craig Price,
superintendent of the Highway
Patrol. The kick-off weekend in-
cluded a high-visibility saturation
patrol on Monday, Memorial Day.
“Our statistics show that
speeding, impaired driving and
other hazardous moving viola-
tions are major contributors in
crashes, injuries and deaths on
our highways,’’ Price said. “We
kicked off our safety campaign on
Memorial Day weekend to get the
maximum public awareness of
the need for safety on the road-
ways.’’
Speed and alcohol will be the
top two targets for the enforce-
ment campaign this summer,
Price said. The Highway Patrol
believes that focus will have the
largest impact on reducing fatal
crashes.
“Obviously, we will be enforc-
ing all the other traffic laws,’’ he
said. “That’s the reasoning behind
the ‘Obey the Sign and Avoid the
Fine’ campaign slogan.’’
Highway Patrol troopers work
in teams and will partner with
other law enforcement agencies
when opportunities arise, Price
said. Monday’s saturation patrol
had virtually all uniformed troop-
ers on the highways.
In addition to enforcement, the
summer safety campaign will use
social media for public education
and will partner with the State
Department of Transportation for
permanent and portable message
boards with safe-driving mes-
sages on the interstates and other
high-traffic areas in South
Dakota. 
“wallmart”, are set up to redirect
consumers to bogus websites.
Once redirected to the fraudulent
site the consumer will be asked to
disclose personal information
such as social security or bank ac-
count numbers.
If you have been a victim of one
of these scams or need any addi-
tional information contact the At-
torney General’s Consumer
Protection Division at 1-800-300-
198 or consumerhelp@state.sd.us.

To the Editor
Commoditization of  the United
States cattle industry
I recently read a report by one
of our cattle market analysts, who
tried to identify what issues
and/or policies had damaged the
cattle industry the most. Great
question ... with an exploding
population that needs to feed it-
self, one would certainly wonder
why the United States cattle in-
dustry is contracting.
The analyst identified two
such issues, but he also exposed
the extremes that such folks as
himself, certain industry groups,
and some of our more social
media will go to distort the facts
and create smoke screens to ac-
complish their socialistic agenda.
The article states that “manda-
tory country of origin labeling
(COOL) for fresh meat products”
has “added billions of dollars of
costs to the livestock and meat in-
dustry.” WOW – billions! Some-
body needs to tell him that COOL
has only been in effect since 2009
and that even the packers and re-
tailers couldn't come up with a
figure that ridiculous.
Then he goes on to say that the
blame for COOL lies squarely
with a “tiny minority of livestock
producers.”
These are the same tactics
used by our monthly Beef En-
quirer-like publications that we
get for free to create public record
to try and show a lack of producer
support. The problem is that –
when you look at all the local and
state Farm Bureau, Farmers
Union and cattlemen's groups –
you will find overwhelming pro-
ducer support for mandatory
COOL.
He then goes to say, “Surveys
showed consumers didn't care
about labeling.” WOW, I believe
what we have seen reported is
just the opposite with multiple
surveys showing consumer sup-
port for  COOL.
And then he finishes up by say-
ing that USDA (United States
Department of Agriculture)
“changes will only increase dis-
crimination against foreign born
livestock.” Not sure what changes
he’s talking about, but the ones
submitted by USDA to come into
WTO (World Trade Organization)
compliance are designed to re-
duce the discrimination practice
yielded by U.S. packers in an ef-
fort to kill COOL. I still think
what the packers did bordered on
anti-competitive and discrimina-
tory practices ... a heck of a thing
to witness in this country.
I point this out on COOL not
because I believe anyone really
buys into these distortions, as we
all understand the extremes
these folks will go to and certainly
they have lost their credibility
with the average U.S. cattle pro-
ducers. Rather, I point this out
because these are the same peo-
ple and groups that told you in
the late ’80s and the ’90s that you
need to learn to compete in a
global market; however, they op-
pose you identifying your product.
They also told you that your com-
petition was poultry and pork and
not imports.
That’s interesting, because it
was recently announced that the
National Pork Producers Council
and the Cattlemen's Beef Board
have been working in partnership
for nearly two years to provide
more “consumer-friendly” names
for 350 new and older cuts of beef
and pork under URMIS (Uniform
Retail Meat Identity Standards)
with some of the pork cuts adapt-
ing beef names. Now while some
of this appears good, other
changes have the potential to re-
duce and confuse beef sales. For
example, no longer is it just pork
chops; now it will be ribeye chops,
porterhouse chops, and New York
chops. So when the young house-
wife walks up to the meat counter
to buy a “ribeye” for her loved one,
she will be asked by the meat re-
tailer, “pork or beef?” She may
then very well ask the perceived
professional, “What do you sug-
gest?”
I imagine the response by the
retailer will depend on which
product gives him the most profit,
along with his own biases.
I understand why the pork
folks went for this, but here’s the
problem for U.S. cattle producers.
These meat cut names, while not
trademarked brand names, act
very much like brand names for
the beef/cattle industry. Con-
sumers are familiar with these
terms in beef and relate those
names to such things as flavor,
tenderness and quality. Histori-
cally, consumers have made deci-
sions based on these names, they
have become the brand-like name
of each cut, and you don’t conspire
to let your competitor use your
brand name!
It is well understood that
brand names simplify shopping
and aid in processing of informa-
tion about products; however,
these types of changes complicate
meat buying decisions   for con-
sumers and compromise beef’s
ability to separate itself in the an-
imal protein market and promote
itself. As the EBAC noted, “Peo-
ple recognize brand and attach a
certain intrinsic value to the
product because of its name” like
ribeye, New York, porterhouse, T-
bone – those names kind of make
your mouth water, don’t they?
Another marketing expert goes
on to say, “Do NOT underesti-
mate the power of name brands.
This power can be so compelling
to your buyers that they may be
blinded to all other purchase con-
siderations.” But not now, not
with beef. No wonder Patrick
Fleming of the National Pork
Board said it will aid the con-
sumer’s “decision-making on pork
by adapting beef nomenclature
for pork.” In other words, they
will sell more pork ... at beef’s ex-
pense.
So, as we look to answer the
question of what issues and/or
policies have done the most dam-
age to U.S. cattle herd, I would
have to say the destructionist
trade policies of some of our in-
dustry groups and our social
media, who have had no problem
sacrificing U.S. producers for
trade liberalization, as well as the
social commoditization and stan-
dardization of our industry and
the fading product identity in the
animal protein domestic and
global market; instead of concen-
trating on differentiating between
our products, we are blurring the
lines.

Column
Infinite Variety in South Dakota
It has been said that South
Dakota is the land of infinite va-
riety. Our weather in the past
month has certainly proven that
to be true.
Fortunately, the description of
our variety also extends to South
Dakota’s geography. We are home
to wide-open grasslands and
lakes, mountains and streams,
and the beautiful, flowing Mis-
souri River.
Because of our diverse land-
scapes, a wealth of state parks
are scattered across South
Dakota.
Whether you are interested in
a day at the beach at Sandy Shore
near Watertown, a fishing trip at
Indian Creek by Mobridge or a
getaway weekend in our beautiful
Black Hills, let South Dakota’s
parks be your host this summer.
Few states can compete with
the number of options that our
state park system provides to
South Dakotans and those who
visit us, and we will continue to
improve. This year, we enacted a
bill that created our first new
state park in 41 years – Good
Earth State Park, at the Blood
Run National Historic Site in Lin-
coln County.
The new park will be located
near one of South Dakota’s fastest
growing areas, southeast of Sioux
Falls. The beautiful scenery will
be preserved for visitors to enjoy
for years to come. I invite each of
you to visit South Dakota’s
newest state park.
As you make your Memorial
Day and summer vacation plans,
I hope you will consider exploring
the beauty in our own back yard.
In fact, this weekend is Open
House weekend from Friday
evening through Sunday (May 17-
19), where all state park entrance
admissions are free.
In addition, May 17-19 is free-
fishing weekend, allowing all
South Dakotans to fish from Fri-
day through Sunday license-free.
These events coincide with our
celebration of Kids to Parks day,
a national promotion linking our
young people with the great out-
doors.
This weekend, and all year
round, making arrangements to
camp, hike, hunt or fish has never
been easier. Our citizens can now
visit www.campsd.com or down-
load the South Dakota Outdoors
smartphone app to get directions,
book a campground, buy a hunt-
ing or fishing license or just learn
more about all that our state park
system has to offer.
I think you will be pleasantly
surprised at what you find here in
South Dakota.      
Summer travel should not
mean pain at the pump
Families will soon be packing
up their cars, pulling out the
maps, and jumping on the road to
enjoy the beautiful summer
weather in South Dakota.
Tourism is the number two indus-
try in South Dakota, so we under-
stand the implications that
higher gas prices mean not only
for our own summer plans, but
also for the plans of thousands of
other families hoping to enjoy
some summer fun in our state.
Increases in gas prices across
South Dakota and surrounding
areas of the Midwest continue to
squeeze American families and
small businesses who are still
dealing with a historically slow
economic recovery. The financial
pain of high gas prices is not lim-
ited to filling up our own vehicles.
The price of gasoline is driving up
the cost of goods and services
each of us rely upon. For example,
the price to transport everyday
household goods is higher due to
increased gas prices; these fuel
costs are passed on to the con-
sumers in the form of higher
prices. The high gas prices also
impact the state’s number one in-
dustry—agriculture. Farmers
and ranchers, who rely on the use
of tractors, combines, and other
equipment, also feel the pinch of
the higher prices for gasoline and
diesel fuel.
Instead of working together to
help lower the cost of gas for all
Americans, the administration
and Senate Democrats continue
to turn a blind eye to the problem.
It is time for Congress to get seri-
ous about creating jobs and low-
ering energy prices. Projects like
the Keystone XL pipeline will
help provide a more efficient dis-
tribution of Bakken oil to refiner-
ies across the Midwest and will
help create nearly 20,000 jobs.
Additionally, while oil and gas
production is booming on private
lands, it continues to lag in fed-
eral areas and some of our most
promising offshore areas remain
off-limits. America is beginning to
take hold of its energy future, but
without the right policies coming
out of Washington, consumers
will continue to feel pain at the
pump throughout the year.   
As South Dakotans gear up for
another season of baseball games,
camping trips, and summer vaca-
tions, I will continues to push for
responsible access to all domestic
sources of energy that will help
lower prices and increase Amer-
ica’s energy security.

Last week’s news
Bev Hudson said, “Everyone
who came into church Sunday
morning was smiling.” There’s
nothing like a good rain to put a
smile on the faces of people who
are so dependent on the earth and
the weather. Judging from what I
see on my computer rainfall
amounts varied. Mrs. Joe Rose
from north of Eagle Butte near
Green Grass had pictures of the
hail in drifts like snow. Lucy
Knight reported her mom in the
Cherry Creek, Red Scaffold area
had 5 inches of rain and the
draws were running. We had an
inch and ,10 as of 11 Sunday
morning. Bub and D’Anne
Thompson must have had more
than two inches judging from
their puddles and mud. Linda
Howie at White Owl, reported 2 ½
inches in the rubber feed tub and
I think they got more later. Bon-
nie Timmons Trask said they had
2.5 inches of rain between Marcus
and White Owl and Glen King
had 9 tenths of an inch. Val
Hlavka said a half inch last night
and a quarter inch today!   I be-
lieve the entire state of South
Dakota is heaving a big sigh. Isn’t
the sound of rain on the roof a
wonderful thing to hear after
such a dry time. Thank you God
for answering our prayers.
There will be a wedding
shower for Emily Wicks and
Thane Escott at the Marcus Hall
Friday evening, May 31. It will
start at 6:30 with a potluck sup-
per followed by the shower.
Everyone is invited. Guys, you
best come along and enjoy the
food and swap stories. I was sup-
pose to put this in last week but
forgot about it so I need to apolo-
gize to Kay King and to Emily
and Thane.  It also missed again
because this news seems to have
hit cyberspace last week! Two
weeks in a row isn’t good!
There will be (was) a cleanup
at the White Owl Cemetery,
Thursday May 23rd at 5:00 P.M.
Harold made it and tells me there
was a good group of workers!
Last Monday after Addie Boyd
Weyer’s service I talked to Vera
Dutton. She wanted to add a few
things about the Municipal Build-
ing in Faith. Vera tells me that
the lot it’s located on belonged to
Charles and Pearl Kirkpatrick
who ran a garage at Bixby before
they moved to Faith. After mov-
ing to Faith, Charles Kirkpatrick
had his garage where the Munic-
ipal Building and the former
Jones Barbershop are located.
Somehow we got a little off the
subject but Vera also told me that
the parsonage at Prairie Home
was once the Hoffman house that
sat at Bixby. Marilyn Thompson
McDermott also wrote me about
the Municipal Building and I took
the liberty of copying her email.
“Guess I'm taking over for Cullen
but when I read in your column
about needing/wanting history on
the municipal bldg. I felt Cullen
telling me 'someone' should fill
her in. Anyway, I remember the
building as always having been
built by the WPA. I was surprised
it was put in the same era as the
hospital as it had to have been in
the 30's. I have so many memo-
ries of that building, the smell,
the library, later the jail, the graf-
fiti in the awful public restroom,
snake dancing through the bar
before Homecoming. I still feel
uncomfortable having a 'drink' in
there when it was always a 'men
club' in my youth. The municipal
building being TWO stories was a
REAL building, like the school.”
I'm sure you are finally enjoy-
ing Spring and I hope the 'water'
is plentiful and the prairie green!
Marilyn
Thank you to both ladies for
sharing their memories about the
Municipal Building. I guess it
never occurred to me that some-
thing else had stood at that spot.
All that I have ever known it as
was the Municipal Building.
Thinking of that brings to mind
the old building that houses
Haines Trucking on Main Street.
I remember Shirley Jean Votja
Butler and my mom talking about
the days Shirley Jean worked
there at McCormick’s and sold
candy. Is that the right name
Jean? Is there anything anyone
would like to share about that
building and the businesses that
it has held? I’d love to hear about
it!
This week’s news
For Lord knows what reason,
the Marcus News was not all in
last week. Consequently I'm in
trouble with half the country
cause I missed the Escott/Wicks
shower notice again. If they could
they'd fire my butt. I wouldn't let
my son-in-law, Robert go get ta-
bles from the Marcus Hall be-
cause I thought the shower was
last week so he's not impressed
and my husband said,"You only
put in 3 paragraphs of
news...what's wrong? Did you for-
get?" Gee guys I make so much
money doing this you'd think I'd
try harder, huh? Oh well, here
goes again!!
I'm sitting at my computer as
the thunder is rumbling. We had
a quarter of an inch last night
and have been receiving sprinkles
every now and then. Things are
looking much better but we still
need the run off water to fill
creeks and dams.
Tis branding season and the
smell of smoke and burnt hair
fills the air.
Chad King branded last week
and Robert Wondercheck and
Allen Waterland branded Satur-
day. I hear via the grapevine that
Cody Weyer branded last week
also. Bub Thompson is branding
tomorrow, Tuesday. Just imagine
all the neighbors in the area and
you probably know who was at
each branding. If a food critic
wants to eat good country cookin'
nows when he should be around.
Val Hlavka, Lacey and Quirt
Wondercheck, and I attended the
graduation/baby shower for
Shayna Cody at Fort Meade Sat-
urday, May 25.
Sunday, Robert and Lacey
Wondercheck and boys drove to
Gillette, Wyoming to attend the
graduation of Robert's nephew.
Well, we'll see who I tick off
this week. Got any news call me
at 985-5318.
A summer kids’ event called
Kingdom Rock will be hosted at
Faith Church of Christ from June
10th to June 12th. At Kingdom
Rock, kids participate in memo-
rable Bible-learning activities,
sing catchy songs, play team-
work-building games, make and
dig into yummy treats, experience
epic Bible adventures, collect
Bible Memory Buddies to remind
them to stand strong, and test out
Sciency-Fun Gizmos they’ll take
home and play with all summer
long. Plus, kids will learn to look
for evidence of God all around
them through something called
God Sightings. Each day con-
cludes with Fanfare Finale – a
celebration that gets everyone in-
volved in living what they’ve
learned. Family members and
friends are encouraged to join in
daily.
Kids at Kingdom Rock will join
an international missions effort to
share God’s love with children in
India.
Kingdom Rock is for kids from
Pre-school through Junior High
grade and will run from 6:00 pm
to 8:00 pm each day with the hay
wagon leaving at 5:30.
For more information, call 605-
748-2222 or 605-967-2526.

some more things for the bath-
room project and then stopped by
at the visitation for Dean Allen
before she came home.  Thursday
was branding day for the Heidlers
and back to Faith on Friday  to
help there.  OJ and Chip Heidler
were both in some to help, too.
Corky took off Saturday morning
for his home in North Dakota.
Faye Fees went into Faith on
Wednesday to have her car get a
oil change and to visit with
her  friend, Gladys Peterson.
Later that day Rick Albers called
on Faye.
Howard and I went to Sturgis
on Thursday to attend the funeral
for Dean Allen, then on to Rapid
City for an appointment and pick
up new glasses for both of us.
Marlin and Ethel Ingalls were in
Rapid City that day, also.
Linda Reeve Farnham and
traveling friend, Mary, arrived
this week for a visit with her dad
Lisle and brother Mike Reeve.
Spud and Bernice Lemmel
made a trip to the Hills on Friday
to decorate graves and keep ap-
pointments. Their granddaughter
Brittni Lemmel has spent a few
days visiting  Spud and Bernice
and lending a helping hand.  This
weekend they went to Ft. Pierre
for the baptism of Brad Lemmel's
little baby.
Saturday morning, a group of
helpers gathered to mow and trim
the Opal Community Cemetery.
Saturday morning, Dwayne
and Hope Vig helped Merle Vig
move his cow/calf pairs and then
Dwayne and Zona drove to
Gillette, WY for a family gather-
ing.  Sunday morning, the family
grew the congregation by nearly
30 people, then attended Colter
Keffeler's graduation from Camp-
bell County High School.  After
the Open House for Colter,
Dwayne, Zona, Paul and
Cheyenne Winkler and family,
JT, Kelsey and Brixie all drove to
their homes through some very
heavy fog.
Walter and Diane Fees went to
North Platte, NE for a family re-
union of Diane's mother’s side on
Saturday.  They came home on
Monday to check home out, then
headed for Aberdeen where Wal-
ter is scheduled for shoulder sur-
gery on Tuesday.  Jason and Jake
Fees were at the Fees ranch on
Sunday to do some farm work.
Jason also stopped in to visit Faye
and change a water filter for her.
Marlin and Ethel Ingalls
joined the crew of branders at the
Paul and Debbie Delbridge ranch
on Saturday.  Sunday, they went
into Faith for the party for
Richard and Barb Isaacs for their
50th wedding anniversary.
Rod, Tracy, Jason and Justin
Ingalls were in Faith on Sunday
afternoon to tackle the forest of
grass in their town house yard,
then attended the party for
Isaacs's as well.
Howard and I left early Sun-
day forenoon for Sturgis. Visited
Margie Ingalls, then with Freda
Wilson and Wayne and Joyce Si-
mons, then joined the rest of the
Simons siblings for our May gath-
ering. We also celebrated Vern Si-
mons’ birthday so Lyle and
Juanita Delbridge and their fam-
ily (short Chet) all joined us as
well as other guests. 
School election is coming up on
June 4th and I think the polling
place is still at the Opal School.
Call me if you have any questions.
Reminder that Faith Stock
Show is coming faster than we
think and so is the parade.  Tracy
Ingalls is once again the contact
person and she would like to hear
from you as soon as possible with
an entry and the theme is “My
Hero/Heroes” so can cover a large
range.
The grass certainly shot up
this past week after the recent
rain. I think it grew 6” or more in
just a few days! Temperatures re-
mained in the 50s and 60s most of
last week. Skies were mostly
overcast until Thursday when the
sun finally made an appearance.
But along with the sun came lots
of wind, sucking the moisture
right back out of the ground! Fri-
day was overcast most of the day
and looked like it could rain at
anytime. Saturday it rained again
making for a wet Memorial Day
weekend. Saturday’s storm in-
cluded a tornado watch for our
area, but thankfully, nothing de-
veloped. We had a big storm hit
around 12:30 that night and
poured hard for about 45 minutes
giving us 1” of rain, with plenty of
wind, thunder and lightning and
a little pea sized hail. I don’t
think an inch is right, though.
The reporting equipment is out at
the airport and there can cer-
tainly be a big difference in three
miles! Red Lemmel on the edge of
town had 2” and that sounds
more like it for as hard as it
rained! We got another inch Me-
morial Day.
Eldora Fischbach spent several
days at their house in Rapid City.
She came home Thursday to at-
tend the funeral of our cousin,
Rick Hoffman, in Lemmon that
afternoon. Paul and I, nor Dave
attended.
There were a couple celebra-
tions in town over the Memorial
Day weekend. Richard and Barb
Isaacs children hosted a party for
them in honor of their 50th an-
niversary. Alice Maier had a
surpise birthday party for hubby
Earl on Friday night. I’m not sure
how you keep a party a secret in
a small town, but she evidently
did! Congratulations to all!
We received the following
email from Marie DeKnikker the
end of last week saying, “I’m
bursting at the seams to tell you
this news!!!!”
I’ve been trading at Bi-Mart in
Weiser, ID since we moved here.
Lately, it has been more frequent
as I go there to develop my many
pictures! Debbie, the clerk and I
get along famously. We always
chat but yesterday was differ-
ent!!! She said that her son lived
in Cambridge. I was curious as to
what his name was. One thing led
to another, and I asked her what
her last name was. She replied
that her maiden name was “Over-
acker”! I said, “Overacker” we had
some living in my hometown of
Faith. She said that was where
her dad was from. We continued
to talk and she mentioned Aunt
Sally. I asked where she lived and
she said Howes. “HOWES” that is
near where my parents lived. I
asked her what Sally’s last name
was and she said Hlavka!
“Hlavka” I know them! I learned
that David was her father and he
passed away at age 49! We both
agreed that this is a very small
world and exchanged hugs, again!
I (Marie) received an email
from my classmate, Lois Naslund
Doyle in response to a forward
about German music!  She men-
tioned the country dances, Wayne
Cannon and Sis Kovarik  I could
only associate an accordian with
Wayne, but I bought a saxophone
and took lessons while in college,
because of my admiration and en-
joyment of Sis’ saxophone music.
It turns out that Lois bought an
accordian and learned how to
play it because of Wayne’s music.
I became a teacher because I was
blessed with model, Sally Nelson.
I can only say, “I am proud to pay
tribute to these wonderful peo-
ple!”
The Faith Stock Show Parade
theme this year is: “My Hero/He-
roes”. Anyone wanting to have an

Ingalls at 748-2273.
Congratulations to our state
track meet medalists! Tearnee
Nelson tied for 2nd in pole vault
and Caden Smiley tied for 7th in
high jump. Congratulations to all
the qualifiers!
School is out for the summer,

WEST RIVER COOPERATIVE TELEPHONE COMPANY
PO BOX 39 – BISON, SD 57620 – 605-244-5213
Lifeline: Affordable Telephone Service for Income-Eligible Consumers
Background
Lifeline is a government benefit program that provides discounts on monthly telephone service for eligible low-income
consumers to help ensure they have the opportunities and security that telephone service affords, including being able to
connect to jobs, family, and 911 services. Lifeline is supported by the federal Universal Service Fund (USF).
What Benefits are Available Under the Lifeline Program?
Lifeline assistance lowers the cost of basic monthly local telephone service. An eligible customer will receive a discount
of $9.25 per month. Federal rules prohibit eligible low-income consumers from receiving more than ONE Lifeline service per
household.
Lifeline can also include Toll Limitation Service, which enables a telephone subscriber to limit the amount of long dis-
tance calls that can be made from a telephone.
Link Up provides eligible low-income consumers living on Tribal lands with a one-time discount of up to $100 on the ini-
tial installation or activation of a wireline or wireless telephone for the primary residence. Tribal Lands Link Up also allows
consumers to pay the remaining amount that they owe on a deferred schedule, interest-free. Federal rules prohibit eligible
low-income consumers from receiving more than ONE Link Up discount at a primary residence. Eligible consumers may be
eligible for Link Up again only after moving to a new primary residence. Link Up support is only offered to carriers who are
building out infrastructure on Tribal lands so not all carriers may discount their activation fee. Enhanced benefits are pro-
vided to low-income consumers who live on a federally recognized Indian Tribe's reservation.
How Do I Qualify for Lifeline Discounts?
The Lifeline program is available to eligible low-income consumers in every state, territory, commonwealth, and on Tribal
lands. You must be eligible to enroll. To participate in the program, consumers must either have an income that is at or
below 135% of the federal Poverty Guidelines or participate in one of the following assistance programs:
• Medicaid;
•Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (Food Stamps or SNAP);
•Supplemental Security Income (SSI);
• Federal Public Housing Assistance (Section 8);
•Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program (LIHEAP);
•Temporary Assistance to Needy Families (TANF);
•National School Lunch Program's Free Lunch Program;
• Bureau of Indian Affairs General Assistance;
•Tribally-Administered Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TTANF);
•Food Distribution Program on Indian Reservations (FDPIR);
•Head Start (if income eligibility criteria are met); or
•State assistance programs (if applicable).
When you qualify for any of the above programs, you must complete a Lifeline Assistance Application. For more informa-
tion, or to find out if you qualify for the programs, call your local telephone company, state Public Utility Commission, or the
Federal Communications Commission at 1-888-CALL-FCC. You may also visit the “Lifeline Across America” Web site
[www.lifeline.gov].

Thank You
We want to thank everyone for their thoughts
and prayers, cards, flowers, food, phone calls,
messages and floral arrangements.
Your thoughtfulness will always be remembered.
Addie Boyd Weyer family
Anna Stambach recently re-
ceived a $1000 scholarship from
Northern Plains as part of the
company’s scholarship program
for high school seniors.
Stambach was among five high
school seniors given scholarships
on behalf of local Northern Plains
member owners.
Anna Stambach, daughter of
Mark and Monica Stambach, of
Dupree, plans to major in Ele-
mentary and Special Education
at South Dakota State Univer-
sity.
Scholarships were given to ap-
plicants whose high school aca-
demic performance is high, and
have demonstrated the qualities
of leadership, industry, integrity
and good high school and commu-
nity citizenship.
Stambach awarded Northern Plains scholarship
“We are proud to support to-
morrow’s leaders,” says Todd
Oster, general manager Northern
Plains. “Scholarships are one way
that Northern Plains continues
our commitment to be leaders in
the community.”
Northern Plains (www.north-
ernplainscoop.com) is a diversi-
fied farmer owned cooperative
offering grain, agronomy, feed
and energy products and services.
Headquartered in Gettysburg,
SD, they serve more than 5,200
active customers through their
eight locations in north central
South Dakota and south central
North Dakota. 
Many thanks
We would like to thank the
community for the wonderful sup-
port of the Master Gardeners’
fourth annual plant swap and
sale in May. This spring event is
a major fund raiser for the proj-
ects that the Master Gardeners
work on all year long. This year
we brought in bedding plants
from a new supplier out of Sioux
Falls.  We were very pleased with
the new supplier and felt the
plants were much nicer than pre-
vious years.
We learned a good lesson
which we will remember for next
year, we ordered too much, one of
these times we will get it right.
We still had some left on the
fourth afternoon so we planted
the containers on the fairgrounds
and we shared several flats of
flowers with the folks in Lemmon
that were hailed out Saturday
evening in two nasty storms. Flo-
rence Hoff graciously agreed to
haul the plants to Lemmon for us.
We got in and sent out some
great swaps this year, lots of
healthy big African violets and
other house plants. This is a fun
way to share what you have too
much of and to pick up something
you would like to have.    
We are no longer able to order
or sell shrubs and some types of
perennials without a special li-
cense.  Rather than go through
that hassle we will not order the
plants that need special licensing.
Thanks so much everyone for
your support, we appreciate each
and every one of you that came
through the door whether you
were swapping or shopping! It is
always fun to meet other garden-
ers, the pros and the beginners.
We wish you all happy gardening
and encourage you to show off
your bloomers!

Upcoming disease and pest
problems
Wow, it rained! The watering
that many have done over the last
year or so has helped keep trees
and shrubs alive but it is not as
beneficial as rainwater. Now
things are going to start happen-
ing with plant development,
growth and depending on the hu-
midity and temperatures associ-
ated with disease and pest
problems. Following are some
problems that may show up on a
tree near you and how to control
them.
Apple scab is a fungal disease
to trees and shrubs in the apple
family. The disease is most no-
ticeable in mid–summer as dull
black or grey-brown lesions on the
surface of tree leaves and fruit.
The disease rarely kills its host,
but can significantly reduce fruit
yields and fruit quality. Young
leaves are most susceptible to
being infected within the first
week after unfolding.
Captan can be used to control
apple scab on crabapple and
apple trees. The first application
should be done as the buds swell
and open and do two or three
more applications spaced 10 days
apart. Other fungicides that can
be used on ornamental crabap-
ples only are propriconazole con-
tained in such products as Bonide
INFUSE Systemic Disease Con-
trol, Ferti-Lome Systemic Fungi-
cide Liquid or chlorothalonil
contained in such products as
Bonide Fungionil, Garden Tech
Daconil, Gordon’s Multi-Purpose
Fungicide, Ortho Daconil just be-
fore the bud sheaths have opened.
Zimmerman Pine Moth is a na-
tive insect that has become estab-
lished throughout northwestern
South Dakota. Ponderosa Pines
in shelterbelts have been most
commonly infested, but Austrian,
Mugo, Jack and Scotch Pines are
also reported as hosts. It infests
the tips of branches and the main
trunk feeding on the inner bark.
Branches typically break at the
crotch area where they join the
trunk. Dead and dying branches,
most often in the upper half of the
tree, commonly indicate infesta-
tions. The first external symp-
toms of injury are popcorn-like
pitch masses at wound sites. The
pitch masses may reach golf-ball
size and ultimately resemble clus-
ters of small, pale grapes. The in-
jury not only retards growth but
also deforms the tree. Partially
girdled whorls become so weak-
ened that the tree breaks off.
Permethrin contained in prod-
ucts such as Bonide Borer-Mine
Killer and Gordon’s Bug-No-More
can be used to control this pest.
April is normally the time for
chemical control but as late of a
spring as we are having you
should be able to kill the caterpil-
lars in May by soaking the tree
and especially the trunk before
the temperature warms. When
they start crawling about and
begin to dig deep into the tree
trunk they will be killed by the
poison residue on the bark. Re-
peat the spray application in Au-
gust to kill young caterpillars
that hatch from the eggs.
Diplodia Tip Blight a fungal
disease that affects Austrian and
Scotch that are growing under
stressful conditions. The fungus
is known to infect the younger
and healthy needles of newly
formed candles. It especially at-
tacks the tips and needles of trees
that have been weakened by
stress from drought, injuries to
roots, not enough nutrients in the
soil, excessive amounts of shade,
as well as injuries inflicted from
weather and insects. It shows up
as canker like injuries that ooze a
resin that serves to infect other
trees. The most evident sign of a
pine tree being infected is if the
trees have brown, stunted new
shoots with short, brown needles.
To control treat with a fungicide
containing propiconazole or
chlorothalanil before the bud
sheaths have opened. See above
under apple scab for products
containing these active ingredi-
ents.

lease were the Dr. John Ball,
