Happy Mother’s Day!
United Blood Services, along
with the South Dakota Beef In-
dustry Council, is beefing up the
blood supply in May. Blood
donors will receive a beef certifi-
cate and a chance to win one of
two barbecue grills. Together the
organizations will celebrate beef’s
ability to “Pump up the Iron” in
blood.
Blood donors in South Dakota
who give blood, plasma, or
platelets at a United Blood Serv-
ices blood drive or blood center
through May 31st will receive a
certificate redeemable for beef at
a grocery store, meat market, or
participating restaurant.
“Studies have consistently
shown that the iron in beef is
more readily absorbed by the
body,” says Donor Recruitment
Director Angel Pillet. “Donors
who have been turned down for
low iron in the past can improve
their iron levels by eating iron-
rich foods like beef, iron-fortified
cereals, and leafy green vegeta-
bles.”
Additionally, all donors are au-
tomatically registered for a draw-
ing to win one of two barbecue

David Ruth recognized as
Faith High School’s top senior
Gov. Dennis Daugaard joined
in celebrating an accomplished
group of graduating seniors and
encouraged them to grow their
own roots in South Dakota during
Monday’s 23rd Annual Academic
Excellence Banquet in Pierre.
“Some of the greenest pastures
in America are right here in
South Dakota,” Gov. Daugaard
said, noting the low cost and high
quality of living South Dakota of-
fered.
Hosted by the Associated
School Boards of South Dakota
and sponsored by the South
Dakota Community Foundation
and Citibank, the banquet hon-
ored more than 200 students from
the state’s public, private and
tribal schools.
“Today we celebrate excellence
and this is what it looks like,”
ASBSD President Pam Haukaas
of the Colome Consolidated school
district said.
Schools are asked to identify
one student for every 100 gradu-
ating seniors based on academic
criteria, such as grade-point aver-
age and scores on college readi-
ness tests.
Parents and high school prin-
cipals are requested to join each
student and share in the celebra-
tion.
An impassioned Gov. Dau-
gaard urged students to show
their appreciation for the dedica-
tion of those closest to them as he
reminisced about his parents’
commitment to be there for him.
“Remember all the people who
got you here,” Gov. Daugaard
said. “Remember that they love
you.”
David is the son of Wanda
Ruth and the grandson of Richard
and Barb Isaacs. Congratulations
to all!

Dear Editor,
I read with interest the April
17th Cambridge and Council, ID
newspaper accounts written by
Angie Lakey-Campbell about the
Common Core Curriculum. I feel
that parents have reason to be
concerned. While in Coeur d’A-
lene on the 20th attending a Tea
Party Conference dinner featur-
ing dynamic, conservative
speaker, Bill Whittle, we were
lucky to be seated with three
other couples. One brought up the
subject of Common Core. That
piqued my interest. She emailed
me what I found very interesting.
Everyone should go to StopCom-
monCore.com and educate them-
selves on this movement.

Question: I heard that my
disability must be expected to
last a year to qualify for Social
Security disability benefits. Does
this mean I have to wait until
I’ve been disabled an entire year
before applying for disability
through Social Security?
Answer: No. If you believe
your disability will last a year or
longer, apply for disability bene-
fits as soon as you become dis-
abled. It can take an average of
three to four months to process
an application. If your applica-
tion is approved, we will pay
your first Social Security disabil-
ity benefits for the sixth full
month after the date your dis-
ability began. For example, if
your state agency decides your
disability began on January 15,
we will pay your first disability
benefit for the month of July. We
pay in the month following the
month for which they are due, so
you will receive your July benefit
in August.
For more information about
Social Security disability bene-
fits, refer to our publication, Dis-
ability Benefits at

Mothers in our Lives
I’ve been blessed with two in-
credible mothers in my life, one
was my mother Pat Thune who
passed away in March of last
year, and the other is my wonder-
ful wife Kimberley who is mother
to our two beautiful daughters.
Every Mother’s Day our family,
along with millions of other fami-
lies across our country, join in cel-
ebrating the mothers and the
women in our lives who each day
provide love and support to their
families. While it can be a diffi-
cult day for those who have lost
this special person in their life, let
us all celebrate the profound im-
pact they played in our life while
they were still with us.
Kimberley has been an ex-
traordinary example of a faithful,
intelligent, loving, and caring
mother to our two daughters.
While both of them are grown
now, I still remember so many of
the little things Kimberley would
do for the girls, like reading them
bedtime stories, preparing
snacks, helping them with home-
work, and running them to their
school activities. Her strength,
compassion, kindness, and love
are virtues that I now enjoy see-
ing in our girls. As our youngest
daughter prepares for her wed-
ding later this summer, it has
been special to watch the bond
Kimberley shares with both of our
daughters and the admiration
they share for her.
As each family gathers to cele-
brate the mothers, grandmothers,
and spouses who have left an en-
during mark of love and joy on
our lives, let us pay special trib-
ute to all those mothers who are
serving in the military, or have
sons and daughters who are serv-
ing overseas. I ask all South
Dakotans to keep those mothers,
grandmothers, and their children,
in their thoughts and prayers.
Mother’s Day is the perfect op-
portunity for all of us to take time
out of our busy lives to go the
extra step of showing the mothers
in our lives just how much they
mean to all of us. I wish a very
happy Mother’s Day to my wife
Kimberley, my mother-in-law Es-
ther, and to all of the mothers
across South Dakota. 
William S. Harney
Gen. William S. Harney and
his men swept through the heart
of Lakota country in the fall of
1855.
Harney was one of the best-
known military figures in the
United States between the War of
1812 and the War Between the
States.
He chased the last remaining
pirates of Jean Lafitte in
Louisiana, fought in the Black
Hawk War, led the cavalry in the
Mexican War, almost caused a
war with Great Britain in the Pa-
cific Northwest and was both a
fighter and peacemaker with
American Indians. He was at Fort
Laramie in southeast Wyoming
when he was called upon to assert
the might of the United States
government against American In-
dians.
In 1854, a group of Mormons
that was headed west left a lame
cow untethered at Fort Laramie.
American Indians killed the cow
for food. Lt. J.L. Grattan led 29
men from Fort Laramie to the In-
dian camp to find the guilty
party. Negotiations grew heated,
and a shot was fired. The result
was the death of all the soldiers
and the beginning of some 30
years of intermittent warfare on
the northern plains.
Harney was sent to avenge the
killing of the soldiers. He and his
men arrived at Ash Hollow along
the North Platte River in present-
day Garden County, Neb., on
Sept. 2, 1855, where Little Thun-
der’s Brulé band was camped. Al-
though Little Thunder and other
American Indian leaders came
forward with a white flag, Harney
refused to talk peace with them,
nor did he shake Little Thunder’s
outstretched hand. As the Ameri-
can Indian leaders disappeared
from sight, Harney ordered the
infantry to charge. In the end,
four soldiers and 86 American In-
dians, including women and chil-
dren, were killed. Seventy more
American Indians, mostly women
and children, were taken pris-
oner.
Harney returned to Fort
Laramie, but realized he had in-
timidated only a portion of the
Lakota with this show of force. He
and about 425 troops left on Sept.
29, 1855, for Fort Pierre. The fed-
eral government had recently
purchased the former fur trading
post north of the present-day
town of Fort Pierre. Harney and
his men arrived at Fort Pierre in
a sleet and snowstorm on Oct. 20,
only to find dilapidated buildings
and no nearby hay and wood.
Harney abandoned Fort Pierre
in 1857. Before doing so, he had
called a peace council that in-
cluded all the western bands of
Lakota. A treaty was negotiated
which for the first time provided
an Indian police force to preserve
the peace. The treaty was rejected
by the U.S. Senate.
While still at Fort Pierre, Har-
ney also found a suitable site for
a fort along the Missouri River.
He established Fort Randall
about 110 miles by river above
Yankton. Fort Randall was a
strategic site in western frontier
defense.
In order to end fighting
throughout the Great Plains,
Congress established the Indian
Peace Commission of 1867. Har-
ney served on this commission.
American Indians he had fought
now saw him come to make peace.
During the councils, Harney be-
came the defender of American
Indians. He stressed their need
for food and clothing. He was
later placed in charge of the ad-
ministrative district known as the
Great Sioux Reservation. This in-
cluded all the land west of the
Missouri River in present-day
South Dakota.
Overseeing the Great Sioux
Reservation was Harney’s last
government job. He died in Or-
lando, Fla., on May 9, 1889. His
name lives on in South Dakota.
The peak he might have observed
in the distance as he and his
troops skirted the Black Hills in
1855 was named Harney Peak in
his honor by Lt. G.K. Warren
while on a survey expedition in
1957.

With spring comes new begin-
ings, new growth, and new track
records. It was exciting to find out
that Caden Smiley was able to
high jump 6' 3" on Saturday at
the Lemmon Track Meet. Caden
stands 5' 10" tall and cleared a
height five inches higher than he
stands. Congratulations to Caden
and special kudos from his first
track coach!
The Union Center track 7th -
8th graders plan to attend the
track meet in Eagle Butte on
Tuesday. The Union Center Jr
High track team was coached this
year by Shelane Graham,
Melanie Cammack, and Sandy
Rhoden. Molly and Rachel Rein-
hold were great help on the days
they came to practice. They are
also very helpful at track meets
and are so very much appreci-
ated.
Some of the Faith athletes will
be in Eagle Butte on Tuesday,
while some of them will travel to
Rapid City to compete at the
track meet at the School of Mines.
Teagan Spring had friends
stay over for his 11th birthday
this past weekend. They all at-
tended church services in Union
Center on Sunday.
Kayla Spring, daughter of Glen
and Robin Spring, graduated
from Black Hills State University
on Saturday, May 4 with a major
in psychology. Best wishes to
Kayla.
Paige Brink, Caden Smiley,
and Reggie Rhoden will graduate
from Faith High School on Sun-
day, May 19 at 3:00 pm. Collin
Wilcox will graduate at 2:00 at
Sturgis Brown High School on the
same day. We wish the Central
Meade County high school gradu-
ates all the best.
There will be Rural Neighbors
in Union Center at the Fellowship
room of the Community Baptist
Church in Union Center this
Thursday at 1:00 pm. All are wel-
come.
Someone to keep a eye on in the
rodeo circuit is Connor McNenny.
He has done very well at Kadoka
winning two events. We are wait-
ing for results for final standings.
Connor attends Sturgis High
School and is the grandson of
Kenny and Henrietta McNenny.
The McNennys, their son,
Larry, and Larry and Sandy Rho-
den attended the Lincoln Day
Dinner in Spearfish on Saturday
evening. They were able to hear
the speaker, Kitty Werthman,
who grew up in Austria under
Hitler's regime. She discussed the
gradual move to socialism after he
took office, until the US came and
liberated Austria. The beginnings
of Hitler's rule began with social-
ized medicine, gun registration,
free early child care, nationalized
banks, and losing local control.
The talk was very interesting and
eye opening.
We had temperatures in the
40s to 60s last week, and unfortu-
nately, no moisture. It sounds like
we could be getting some this
Thursday and Friday.
Melvin and Bev Udager ar-
rived here from Idaho last week
and are spending some time visit-
ing friends and relatives in the
area.
Monday and Tuesday, George
and Annelle Afdahl kept appoint-
ments in the Hills and visited for-
mer Faith residents Judy Walker,
Rida Dzintars, Orville Graslie,
Irwin Richardson, Gene Lund,
Ernest Delbridge and Dr. Wayne
and Karen Sletten. They were in
Newcastle, Wyo. Saturday and
Sunday for high school rodeos.
Grandson Canton was a partici-
pant and placed in the team rop-
ing.
Condolences to the family of
Addie Boyd Weyer. She passed
away Sunday night and her serv-
ices will be next Monday in Stur-
gis. She was one of those special
ladieas and one of the best ele-
mentary teachers. She taught in
the Faith School for many years.
Our daughter Melissa, and
Bella, came home last week Mon-
day and spent several days visit-
ing. She was here mostly to visit
with Amanda Palmer Few who is
here with her two boys from Illi-
nois to attend brother Ryan’s
graduation on Saturday at
BHSU. Melissa also got in a little
visiting with friends Takayla
Lightfield and Marlayna McGin-
nis. While she was home we tried
out the new “f’real” shakes at
M&D. I must say the mint choco-
late chip is pretty good! They
have about 10 different flavors.
Melissa left here Friday morning
and went to Spearfish. She also
attended Ryan’s graduation on
Saturday, and headed back home
to North Dakota on Sunday.
Heard some interesting news
from my daughter last week. She
said that FHS graduate Scott
Petz is flying with the U.S. Air
Force Thunderbirds. That is quite
an achievement!
Remember, there is a blood
drive this Thursday at St.
Joseph’s Church. You can proba-
bly call Amy Ulrich yet or just
walk in. All donors are welcome.
Don’t forget to take your photo ID
or you can’t give!

be presenting their Spring Con-
cert this Thursday night at 6:30

an enjoyable evening of entertain-
ment
The track team competed in

so. Congratulations to Caden

mon Meet record in high jump.
The Little Moreau Conference
Meet is at Lemmon this Friday.
The Regional Meet is next Thurs-
day at Lemmon. This will be the
final chance to qualify for the
State Meet which is in Sioux Falls
Memorial Day weekend.
The Faith High School Rodeo
Club has their annual rodeo this
Sunday, Mother’s Day. We wish
them all a good season too. We
need the rain but hope it’s dry
Sunday for them. Although it
does make fun watching!
Awards Night is next Monday,

I just received word of the
passing of Addie Boyd Weyer.
Mrs. Weyer was the Faith fourth
grade teacher who students often
listed as their favorite teacher.
She was a very special lady who
cared deeply for her students and
her profession. To say she will be
missed is an understatement of
facts! Sympathy to all the family.
Even tho’ it’s short the grass is
beginning to green up. We are in
need of rain and a lot of it would
sure be nice. Farmers like my
husband are checking the wheat
and wondering what to do. Some
have plowed up the fall plant and
started over. Someone called a
grain elevator to ask about seed
and the man who answered said,
“It’s too late to plant spring
wheat, we don’t have any spring
wheat seed and I wouldn’t know
where to find any.” Guess that
settles the spring wheat planting
issue! Warm weather would help
the winter wheat come up about
as much as some rain. When I
talk about winter and spring
wheat my aunt, Ruth Thompson
Barlow, asks if anyone plants
spelts. The first time she asked I
had to ask what she meant, I’d
never heard of it. I just looked it
up again and I got the following
definitions: 1. Spelt is a type of
hulled wheat grown in Europe
with a nutty flavor and slightly
less gluten than common bread
wheat. 2.An example of spelt is a
type of bread suitable for those
with allergies to common wheat,
but not for those with gluten al-
lergies. 3.a primitive species
(Triticum spelta) of wheat with
grains that do not thresh free of
the chaff: now seldom cultivated
4. A hardy wheat grown mostly in
Europe. My grandfather, Edwin
Thompson, apparently planted
and raised it here at Marcus. I
have wondered when it was no
longer the crop to plant. It also
occurred to me as I looked at the
definitions that it might make
something of a comeback if it has
less gluten. Does anyone know
much about spelts? Was it
planted spring or fall? Did it re-
quire less moisture? Was it pro-
ductive, how many bushels per
acre would be considered a good
crop etc.?
Tuesday, Vonnie O'Dea went
to Philip and met with classmates
to work on upcoming events for
their class reunion. Later she vis-
ited her Aunt Eleanor Kroetch at
the Silverleaf Assistant Center
and also got to see her sister,
Betty Smith, who was working
there that day.
Dick and Marlys Johnson were
dinner and afternoon guests of
Jim and Vonnie O'Deas on
Wednesday. Johnsons were com-
ing from their winter home in Ari-
zona and going to their summer
home in Minnesota. Dick is Von-
nie's uncle.  They went to Philip
next to visit Dick's sister and
other relatives.
Friday found Vonnie O'Dea
meeting Susan O'Dea and Mary
Deichert in Philip. They contin-
ued on to Vermillion and met
Rachel Deichert, Zack West, Leo
and Kelly O'Dea, and friend Deb
for supper and visiting. Saturday
Vonnie, Susan, and Mary at-
tended the 126th  Commence-
ment Exercises of the University
of South Dakota. Rachel Deichert
received her Bachelor of Science
in Nursing degree. Rachel is Jim
and Vonnie's granddaughter and
would like to get a job in Ne-
brasaka. Vonnie, Susan, and
Mary came home after enjoying
dinner.
On Sunday afternoon, Jim and
Vonnie O'Dea were guests at the
Gene and Theresa Deuchars.
Sonny and Ozzie Baye were the
honored guests, as they will be
moving later to Sioux Falls to be
closer to their children. Mrs.
Baye had taught the O'Dea's chil-
dren at the King School many
years ago near Milesville.
O'Deas got a call on Sunday
evening from granddaughter Amy
Deichert saying she had won the
barrel racing and breakaway rop-
ing at the final college rodeo in
Laramie, Wyoming and was also
the All Around Cowgirl. Next
week Amy is planning to come to
Grandpa and Grandma's to work
again this summer. Congratula-
tions to Jim and Vonnie on all the
achievements of their grandchil-
dren. That’s quite a group to be
proud of!

The South Dakota Department
of Health has released new in-
come guidelines for the WIC Pro-
gram effective May 1, 2013.
WIC is a special supplemental
nutrition program, funded by the
U.S. Department of Agriculture,
provided at no cost to eligible
moms, babies and children. Its
goal is to help improve health by
providing nutritious foods to sup-
plement diets, offering education
on healthy eating, nutrition and
breastfeeding, and making refer-
rals to other services.
If your family income does not
exceed the following amounts for
the size of your family, you could
income qualify for WIC:
Family Size, 185% of Fed-
eral Poverty Level
1 – $21,257
2 – $28,694
3 –$36,131
4 – $43,568
5 – $51,005
6 –$58,442
7 – $65,879
8 – $73,316
9 – $80,753
10 – $88,190
To find out if you or your chil-
dren are eligible for the WIC Pro-
gram, call for an appointment at
your local WIC Office/Community
Health Services Office. Offices
can be found under the county
listings in your phone book or on
the web at
http://doh.sd.gov/LocalOffices/CH
S.aspx. 
At the appointment you will be
asked to provide family income
information, proof of residency
and identity, provide information
about foods eaten, answer ques-
tions about past and current
health, have height and weight
taken, have a finger stick blood
test taken (except a baby up to 9
months of age), and visit with a
health professional about nutri-
tion education and health needs.
If eligible, you will get food
“checks” to buy foods at author-
ized grocery stores.
WIC is an equal opportunity
program. More information about
the program is available on the
Department of Health web site at
http://doh.sd.gov/WIC.
This week has been mostly cold
and dry. We did get a little
shower last Monday night that
barely dampened the ground.
May Day! May Day! That old dis-
tress call was the first thing that
crossed my mind when our ther-
mometer registered 17 degrees
early in the morning on May 1st.
It has been below freezing every
night all week long and that’s just
too darn chilly for spring. No won-
der the May flowers haven’t
shown up yet! Even though it’s
been cold, I couldn’t help myself
and I planted about half of my big
garden this week. Reub spent
most of the week planting barley
and oats and now we’re praying
for rain.
Grand River Grazing Associa-
tion president Tim Smith invited
me to the meeting with Dennis
Neitzke, Forest Service Grass-
lands Supervisor over the Dakota
Prairie Grasslands in North and
South Dakota, and the grazing
association directors at the
Dakota Lodge in Lemmon Mon-
day afternoon. They wanted to de-
termine who owned the fences
that were destroyed and try to ex-
pedite the payment process for
the ranchers and the local fire de-
partments.
Keith Winter, president of the
McKenzie County Grazing Asso-
ciation at Watford City, ND also
attended the meeting. Their graz-
ing association hired an attorney
to research North Dakota law in
regard to Fire Districts and the
responsibilities and potential lia-
bilities for preventing or fighting
fires within the confines of the
McKenzie County Grazing Asso-
ciation. I’m going to ask our attor-
ney in LRC to research South
Dakota law to see if we need to
change any laws in our state.
The Bismarck Tribune printed
an editorial last week blasting the
Forest Service for telling ranchers
that it will be two years before the
federal agency will pay their dam-
age claims. Here’s a quote from
the editorial: “That’s an unaccept-
able timeframe, especially when a
federal agency was at fault and
had conducted the burn over ob-
jections of local landowners. Two
years is too long to have a dozen
or so ranchers carry the federal
government. We’re talking mostly
the costs of feed and fences.”
I wasn’t able to go to Lemmon
when South Dakota’s new Secre-
tary of Agriculture Lucas Lentsch
and Courtney De La Rosa met
with the ranchers on Thursday,
but I want to thank our Depart-
ment of Ag for getting involved.
The High Plains Western Her-
itage Center in Spearfish had its
volunteer luncheon Wednesday. I
got there in time to have dessert,
coffee, and a good visit with sev-
eral of these wonderful folks who
put in so many hours helping out
at the Heritage Center. If you
haven’t visited the center lately,
you should stop by soon. They
have so many interesting exhibits
that it’s pretty easy for me to
spend most of the day looking
them over.
Did you see the article in the
Rapid City Journal this week
about the teenager’s close en-
counter with a mountain lion?
Trevor Hanson did everything ex-
perts tell you to do Monday after-
noon when he stood face to face
with the big cat in the woods east
of Hill City, but none of it worked
so he called 911 on his cell phone
because the cat was between him
and his vehicle. The standoff
ended after the mountain lion
slipped off into the woods when
GF&P got there 20 minutes later.
GF&P didn’t kill the lion since it
hadn’t attacked Hanson, but that
wouldn’t have been my decision!
Casey eliminated more preda-
tors in our neighborhood. So far
this week he’s shot three coyotes
and a fox. Sorry to say, he hasn’t
shot any coons lately.
The older I get the more I un-
derstand these Laws of Life:
*Law of Mechanical Repair:
After your hands become coated
with grease, your nose will begin
to itch or you'll have to pee.
*Law of the Workshop: Any
tool, when dropped, will roll to the
least accessible corner.
*Law of Probability: The prob-
ability of being watched is di-
rectly proportional to the stup-
idity of your act.
*Law of the Telephone: If you
dial a wrong number, you never
get a busy signal.
*Law of the Alibi: If you tell
the boss you were late for work
because you had a flat tire, the
very next morning you will have
a flat tire.
*Variation Law: If you change
lines (or traffic lanes), the one you
were in will start to move faster
than the one you are in now
(works every time).
*Law of the Bath: When the
body is fully immersed in water,
the telephone rings.
*Law of Close Encounters: The
probability of meeting someone
you know increases dramatically
when you are with someone you
don't want to be seen with.
*Law of the Result: When you
try to prove to someone that a
machine won't work, it will.
*Law of Biomechanics: The
severity of the itch is inversely
proportional to the reach.
*Law of the Theater: At any
event, the people whose seats are
furthest from the aisle arrive last.
*Law of Coffee: As soon as you
sit down to a cup of hot coffee,
your boss will ask you to do some-
thing which will last until the cof-
fee is cold.
*Law of Rugs/Carpets: The
chances of an open-faced jelly
sandwich landing face down on a
floor covering are directly corre-
lated to the newness and cost of
the carpet/rug.
*Law of Location: No matter
where you go, there you are.
*Law of Logical Argument:
Anything is possible if you don't
know what you are talking about.
*Brown's Law: If the shoe fits,
it's ugly.
*Oliver's Law: A closed mouth
gathers no feet.
*Wilson's Law: As soon as you
find a product that you really like,
they will stop making it. (This one
is true every time!)
*Doctors' Law: If you don't feel
well, make an appointment to go
to the doctor, by the time you get
there you'll feel better. Don't
make an appointment and you'll
stay sick.
WIC Program announces
new income guidelines
May 8, 2013 • The Faith Independent • Page 7
Gov. Dennis Daugaard has
signed a proclamation naming
May as Weed Awareness Month
in South Dakota.
South Dakota farmers and
ranchers are good stewards of
public and private lands through-
out the state. Our land and natu-
ral resources are a part of the
South Dakota lifestyle, and much
of South Dakota’s economy is
based on agriculture, recreation
and tourism.
Noxious weeds are known to
take over habitats with an ad-
verse impact on crop and forage
production, as well as the envi-
ronment. In South Dakota, inva-
sive weeds such as leafy spurge,
Canada thistle, absinth worm-
wood and purple loosestrife are
presently invading agricultural
and wild lands.
Infestations of noxious weeds
result in significant decreases in
biodiversity. The invasion of habi-
tat by noxious weeds is one of the
primary reasons cited for endan-
germent of threatened and en-
dangered species.
Noxious weeds infest 3,340,883
acres of South Dakota's pastures,
cropland and wild areas; every in-
fested acre means lost money and
more costs to agricultural produc-
ers.
Knowing negative impacts will
encourage and enhance
proper care of the land. Without
the  support of our citizens, we
will lose the use and enjoyment of
the lands of our state.

No. 1 industry, generating over
$21 billion in annual economic ac-
tivity and employing more than
122,000 South Dakotans. The
South Dakota Department of
Agriculture's mission is to pro-
mote, protect, preserve and im-
prove this industry for today and

Governor proclaims May Weed Awareness Month
Applications are being sought
for a state government program
that helps rural medical facilities
in South Dakota recruit nurses,
pharmacists, physical therapists
and other health professionals.
The Rural Healthcare Facility
Recruitment Assistance Program
was launched in 2012 as part of
Gov. Dennis Daugaard’s South
Dakota Workforce Initiatives (SD
WINS). It provides $10,000 incen-
tive payments to eligible health
professionals who complete three-
year service commitments in com-
munities up to 10,000 people.
“It can be challenging for rural
hospitals and clinics to recruit the
health professionals they need,”
the Governor said. “There was a
great response to this program in
its first year, and we’re looking
forward to building on that suc-
cess in more communities this
year.”
Gov. Daugaard said the pro-
gram helped place 60 applicants
in hospitals, nursing facilities,
clinics and home health agencies
in 35 towns across South Dakota
in the past year. Participating
health professionals included
nurses, physical therapists, para-
medics, pharmacists, dietitians,
medical laboratory professionals
and radiologic technologists.
The cost of the $10,000 incen-
tive payment is split between the
state and the employing facility,
with health facilities in smaller
communities paying a smaller
share. The state covers 75 percent
of the total for communities up to
2,500 people and 50 percent for
those larger than 2,500 people.
Applications must be submit-
ted by the employing health facil-
ity. The application period begins
May 1. Application forms and ad-
ditional information can be found
on the state Department of
Health website at
ruralhealth.sd.gov
Sustaining essential health-
care services in rural and under-
served areas is a priority goal of
the Health 2020 initiative in the
South Dakota Department of
Health.

Faith, SD …The Better Choice
Vertical Gardening
What is vertical gardening? It
can be several kinds of gardening
that features a vertical bed or
containers  with a trellis that al-
lows the plant to grow up verti-
cally rather than sprawling along
the ground. There are vertical
garden kits available at various
garden centers which tend to be a
bit pricey.
You can create your own using
wooden or metal trellises, hang-
ing baskets, shelves, containers, a
wood frame, or any combination
of these, to create a space-saving
vertical garden. This type vertical
gardening is great in urban areas
where many homes and apart-
ments have limited outdoor
space. A combination of contain-
ers, shelves, and hanging baskets
works really well on a patio or
balcony to create a complete gar-
den in a small space. If you can
tackle a project like building a
frame with cross-supports and
shelves built-in, this works great
and can be an attractive feature
in your landscape or on the deck
or patio.
Vegetables are good candidates
for a space-saving garden either
in raised bed gardens, in-ground
gardens, hanging gardens, or con-
tainer gardens on the porch,
patio, balcony or deck.  Simply
plant seeds or small plants as
usual, installing the support at
the time of planting to avoid caus-
ing damage to the plant roots or
vines later.
Climbing veggies ideal for a
vertical garden are: cucumbers,
squash (acorn or butternut are
best), tomato (indeterminate),
green beans (pole), peas, and lima
beans.  These will need support
system such as trellis or frame to
climb upward.
Non climbing plants that do
not need a support system but
The Garden Gate
By Karen Englehart, Master Gardener, SDSU Extension - Perkins Co.
can be included in a vertical gar-
den are: pepper, lettuce, radishes,
onions, eggplant, potato (sweet or
regular in a container), parsley
and variety of herbs.
Location is important. Most
vegetables require a minimum of
six hours of sunlight so choose a
sunny location that is near a
source of water. Stay away from
trees and shrubs that can create
too much shade.
It is a good idea to start some-
what smaller than you may be
tempted to try. Choose only your
favorite vegetables for your first
vertical garden.You and your
family will find it rewarding to
care for and harvest the veggies
you love to eat.  You can always
add more containers, trellises and
plants next year. A vertical gar-
den is a great family project.
Children love helping to plant
seeds and help with watering.
They watch the plants grow and
often if they have grown and har-
vested vegetables they are more
inclined to eat them.
Many a man curses the rain
that falls upon his head, and
knows not that it brings abun-
dance to drive away the hunger.

Time to grill some beef! The
summer grilling season is upon us
and Gov. Dennis Daugaard has
proclaimed May as “Beef Month”
in South Dakota.
“There are 3.7 million head of
cattle in South Dakota, which is
nearly five beef animals to every
state resident,” Gov. Daugaard
stated in the proclamation. “The
cattle industry has played a sig-
nificant role in the history of our
state.”
“South Dakota cattle produc-
ers rank eighth nationally in cat-
tle and calf production,” said
Lucas Lentsch, South Dakota
Secretary of Agriculture. “The
South Dakota Department of
Agriculture continues to develop
the SOUTH DAKOTA CERTI-
FIED ENROLLED CATTLE™
and SOUTH DAKOTA CERTI-
FIED BEEF™ programs.”
Beef Month observance began
more than 40 years ago and rec-
ognizes one of the state’s largest
economic sectors. The beef indus-
try has a $2.8 billion economic im-
pact on South Dakota.
“Cattle producers have always
been a large part of our rural way
of life,” Lentsch said. “Beef Month
recognizes the hard work our
farmers and ranchers put in
every day to provide a high qual-
ity product for consumers.”
Agriculture is South Dakota's
No. 1 industry, generating over
$21 billion in annual economic ac-
tivity and employing more than
122,000 South Dakotans. The
South Dakota Department of
Agriculture's mission is to pro-
mote, protect, preserve and im-
prove this industry for today and
tomorrow. Visit us online at
http://sdda.sd.gov or find us on
Facebook and Twitter. 
May is Beef Month
Accomplishing more by de-
mocratizing data
Here in the United States, we
enjoy incredible benefits from sci-
entific research – including an
amazing amount of useful data.
Data is a very powerful tool,
and an important asset for inno-
vation. President Obama made
clear on his first day in office that
the U.S. is committed to openness
in government, and that includes
expanded access to scientific data.
We have a history of achieving
great things by providing open ac-
cess to data. For example, the re-
lease of weather data has fueled
production of new tools that re-
turn more than $4 billion every
year to the U.S. economy. The re-
lease of Global Positioning Sys-
tem technology has led to an
industry that returns an esti-
mated $90 billion annually to the
U.S. economy.
Data is equally important
when it comes to agricultural re-
search. Today, taxpayer-funded
agricultural research is already a
great value – returning $20 in
economic benefits for every dollar
invested.
By opening up data generated
within the government, we can
get even more value for the tax-
payer dollar. We can enable out-
side partners to build on our
work, and make new advance-
ments that help farmers, ranch-
ers and rural communities.
We’re taking an important step
this month to open access to data.
On April 29 and 30 here in Wash-
ington, the G-8 group of nations
and the World Bank will bring
agricultural leaders from around
the world together at the first-
ever “G-8 International Confer-
ence on Open Data for
Agriculture.”
This two-day event will bring
government representatives to-
gether with public and private
sector partners to explore new op-
portunities to share data.
We’ll offer new ways to share
U.S. agricultural information
that we hope will stand as a ben-
efit to our research partners.
Meanwhile, we will explore addi-
tional opportunities for the U.S.
to work with other nations to
strengthen our shared goals in
agricultural research.
With our partners around the
world, we hope to generate new
tools to confront modern chal-
lenges in agriculture – while help-
ing to build capacity in the
developing world. By working to-
gether, and by opening access to
data, we can achieve even more
for agriculture and rural areas
across the globe.
