Several blizzards and ice
storms during recent winters
demonstrate how a major winter
storm can affect everyone in a
large area. Heavy snow, freezing
precipitation, strong winds, and
cold temperatures blocked roads,
caused power outages, and pre-
vented delivery of essential sup-
plies and services; sometimes for
several weeks.
As another winter season ap-
proaches, the National Weather
Service encourages people to
practice safety guidelines to sur-
vive dangerous winter storms and
prepare for extreme conditions by
taking the following steps:
- Check your vehicle’s battery,
antifreeze, wipers and windshield
washer, ignition, thermostat, and
tires.
- Put a winter survival kit in
each vehicle. It should contain a
windshield scraper, jumper ca-
bles, tool kit, tow chain or rope,
tire chains, bag of sand or cat lit-
ter, shovel, flashlight with extra
batteries, warm boots, and a blan-
ket. For longer trips; add extra
clothes, sleeping bags, a portable
radio, first aid kit, high-calorie
nonperishable food, matches and
candles, and large coffee cans for
sanitary purposes or burning can-
dles.
- Keep an adequate supply of
fuel for your home or get an alter-
native heating source. Learn how
to operate stoves, fireplaces, and
space heaters safely and have
proper ventilation to use them.
- Add insulation to your home;
caulk and weather-strip doors
and window sills; install storm
windows or cover windows with
plastic.
- Have emergency supplies at
home: a flashlight, candles,
matches, a battery-powered
radio, extra batteries, and a first-
aid kit.
- Monitor Internet web sites,
NOAA Weather Radio, local radio
or television stations, or cable TV
systems for forecasts and infor-
mation about impending storms.
People should also know the
terms used to describe hazardous
winter weather and what actions
to take for each situation:
A WINTER STORM WATCH
means a dangerous winter storm
is possible. WATCHES are issued
to give people time to prepare for
hazardous conditions before they
develop.
- Postpone trips or take a dif-
ferent route.  Put a survival kit in
your vehicle.  Tell someone your
schedule and route; call them
when you arrive at your destina-
tion. If possible, travel in daylight
and use major highways.  Keep
your fuel tank as full as possible
to avoid ice in the tank and lines.
- At home; have high energy
food or food that requires no cook-
ing, one gallon of water per day
for each person, and enough fuel
for the duration of the storm.
Don’t forget special items for your
family such as prescription medi-
cine, baby formula and diapers,
and pet food!
- If you live in a remote area;
consider having elderly or ill fam-
ily, friends, and neighbors stay
someplace where heat and elec-
tric power are available.
WINTER STORM AND BLIZ-
ZARD WARNINGS are issued
when a dangerous storm is immi-
nent.
- Do not travel unless it is an
extreme emergency. You are safer
to stay where you are rather than
Time to prepare for winter weather
Winter Weather Preparedness Day Wednesday, October 24
Whooping cough cases are on
the rise and a state health official
is urging parents to make sure
their children are immunized.
Nationally, 48 states and
Washington DC have reported in-
creases in whooping cough, also
known as pertussis, through Sep-
tember. In South Dakota, cases
are up 87% over the five-year me-
dian, with 56 cases reported as of
October 3. Most of those cases are
in school-age children and result
from an outbreak in a school set-
ting. Neighboring Minnesota re-
ports nearly 4,000 pertussis
cases, the most since 1943, while
Iowa reports more than 1,100
cases this year.
“Pertussis causes uncontrol-
lable coughing, rib fractures,
pneumonia, loss of consciousness
and even death,” said Colleen
Winter, Director of Health and
Medical Services, Department of
Health. “Very young children are
at highest risk, with two-thirds of
kids under age 1 who get it need-
ing hospitalization.”
The department provides free
pertussis vaccine for children,
with doses recommended at 2
months, 4 months, 6 months, 15-
18 months, and 4-6 years. Chil-
dren need the complete series to
be fully protected. A booster dose
is also recommended at 11-12
years as immunity begins to
wane. The department provides
that booster dose free as well.
Winter said the booster dose
protects middle school students
from the disease and increases
the ring of protection around vul-
nerable infants. Because whoop-
ing cough is highly contagious
and spreads easily in the school
setting, immunizing the older age
group also helps decrease the
likelihood of outbreaks.
Parents can contact their usual
vaccine provider to request the
vaccine. Some schools will also be
scheduling clinics to offer the
whooping cough vaccine along
with the seasonal flu vaccine.
*The vaccine the state provides
is Tdap, which also includes
tetanus and diphtheria. The vac-
cine is free but some providers
may charge an administration
fee.

risk getting stranded along a
highway.
- If you have no heat, close off
unneeded rooms and wear extra
clothes.
- Do not operate power genera-
tors indoors.
WIND CHILL WARNINGS AND
ADVISORIES emphasize the in-
creased risk of frostbite and hy-
pothermia during cold and windy
conditions.
- Stay inside as much as possi-
ble.  If you go outdoors; wear sev-
eral layers of loose-fitting,
lightweight clothing and water
repellent outer garments. Cover
all parts of your body; especially
your head, face, and hands.
- When working outdoors, do
not overexert yourself. Remove
damp clothing as soon as possible
to avoid becoming chilled.

Saturday, Oct. 13th, was a spe-
cial day for Bob and Jennie
Collins. Jennie’s brother, Howard
Dutton from Remer, Minnesoata
and her sister, Florence (Dutton)
Kolb, formerly from Alamagordo,
New Mexico and Spearfish, now
residing in Alexandria, Virginia
came to visit. Two of Florence’s
daughters, Pam Parker, also of
Alexandria and Theone Oliver,
Alamagordo brought Florence to
visit. Also present for the wonder-
ful reunion were Lisa Till, Dupree
and Gordie, Kathy and Stacy
Collins. A scrumptious potluck
dinner was enjoyed with a lot of
visiting, reminiscing, story telling
and a touch of politics included!
Florence, Jennie and Howard
are the three of four remaining
Dutton siblings. It had been over
two years since they had been to-
gether. Gone but never forgotten
were their sister Donna Kolb,
Howard’s wife Barb and Flo-
rence’s husband Arnold Kolb.
Arnold and Florence owned and
operated Black Hills Aviation in
Alamagordo from many years.
The time spent together was a
true blessing.
The open enrollment period for
Medicare Part D and Medicare
Advantage plans is Oct. 15-Dec.
7, 2012.
“One of the things we want
people to know is that if they
have a Medicare Advantage plan
the only time they can make
changes to their plans is Oct. 15-
Dec. 7, 2012,” said Kim Malsam-
Rysdon, secretary for the South
Dakota Department of Social
Services. “All Medicare recipients
should take this time to review
their current plans and consider
whether a change in coverage is
necessary for them.”
Medicare Advantage is a
health plan offered by a private
company that contracts with
Medicare to provide Part A and
Part B coverage (hospital, skilled
nursing, home health, hospice,
doctors’ care and other outpatient
services).
Medicare Part D offers pre-
scription drug coverage for all
people with Medicare; the drug
coverage includes both brand
name and generic drugs.
Beginning Oct. 15, trained vol-
unteers from the South Dakota
Senior Health Information and
Insurance Education Program
(SHIINE) will offer free assis-
tance to seniors seeking addi-
tional Medicare information.
SHIINE volunteers can help
seniors compare plans, evaluate
their current coverage and fill out
paperwork. Seniors taking advan-
tage of the free one-on-one coun-
seling should bring their
Medicare card and a current list
of medications. The volunteers
will use the information to sort
through the Medicare Plan
Finder and compare coverage op-
tions. The Plan Finder can also be
accessed from home at
www.medicare.gov

INE or to meet with a volunteer

Masquerade for the Dupree

Chances are, if you receive So-
cial Security benefits, Supple-
mental Security Income (SSI), or
any federal payment, you receive
it electronically. More than 90
percent of people getting monthly
Social Security benefits already
receive electronic payments. If
you don’t yet, that’s about to
change.
There is a U.S. Department of
Treasury rule that does away
with paper checks for most fed-
eral benefit and non-tax pay-
ments by March 1, 2013. With a
few exceptions, this mandate in-
cludes Social Security, SSI, Vet-
erans Affairs, Railroad
Retirement Board, Office of Per-
sonnel Management benefits, and
other non-tax payments.
People required to switch have
the option of direct deposit to a
bank or credit union account or
they can have their monthly pay-
ment directed into a Direct Ex-
press® debit card account
(Treasury’s debit card program).
Please visit www.godirect.org to
learn more.
So, why the push for electronic
payments instead of paper checks
received in the mail? There’s a list
of reasons an electronic payment
is better than an old-fashioned
paper check.
It’s safer: no risk of checks
being lost or stolen;
It’s easy and reliable: no need
to wait for the mail or go to the
bank to cash a check;
It saves taxpayers money: no
cost for postage and paper and
printing; Treasury estimates this
will save taxpayers $1 billion over
10 years; and
It’s good for the environment:
it saves paper and eliminates the
need for physical transportation.
If you still get your check in
the mail, don’t wait for the new
rule to go into effect next year—
sign up for electronic payments
now. Please visit
www.godirect.org today and begin
getting your Social Security and
SSI payments the safe, easy, reli-
able way — electronically.
Electronic payments: the best (and soon only) way
to get your benefits Deb Imsland Hartford, Social Security Claims Representative

to homestead four miles north of
Faith in 1910. Nelsons lived on
the north side of the settlement,
three miles south of my folks.
One fall in the late ‘teens, they
were very short of money and
wondered how they’d make it
through the winter. They had a
family of four children, ages 6 to
14, all going to a country school
two miles away.

Tom and Trena decided to find
work. Not in a ‘new pickup’ and
staying nights at a motel, and not
at Coal Springs or Meadow Cor-
ner! They would take their team
and hay rack (it would become a
bundle wagon), a bed roll, a few
extra clothes, food and a couple
3-tined bundle forks and head for
the wheat fields in North Dakota.
Tom would get a job hauling bun-
dles for a threshing crew and
Trena would get a job at the
wheeled cook shack.
The children would stay at
home, do chores and go to school.
Joe Hughes, a butcher, who lived
a half a mile to the southeast
would check on them each day.
They were very dependable chil-
dren. Tom and Trena were gone
for two months.
I may be wrong, but I believe
they did this two different years.
There are no buildings left on
the Neleson homestead, only an
ash tree, over a hundred years
old, still growing in their yard.
The house was made of sod,
later covered with a stucco mix,
and a lean-to added.

Memories of the Past
We continue to stay dry here in
our part of western South
Dakota. Temperatures have been
in the 50s and 60s, although we
reached 70s a couple days, with
no rain. And, unfortunately,
there is none in the upcoming
forecast.
Condolences to Dale McLellan
and family of the Dupree/Eagle
Butte/Lantry area, and the entire
McLellan family on the loss of
their youngest son, Arleigh, in a
tragic vehicle accident last Friday
evening near Lantry. He was on
his way home from Mitchell Vo
Tech with a close friend. He was
a nephew of Louise and Amy Ul-
rich, and a cousin of Karleen
Drum. It’s always such a tragedy
when a young life is lost.
Condolences also to the family
of Lulu Mae Wilken. She was al-
ways such a happy lady who
seemed to really enjoy life.
Dave and Eldora Fischbach
spent a couple days at their house
in Rapid City last week doing a
few jobs around the house and
yard before winter arrives. That
may be sooner than we think!
Were you some of the several
millions who watched the live
broadcast of Felix Baumgartner’s
record skydiving/freefall jump on
Sunday on the Discovery Chan-
nel? It took over two hours to
reach the height of 128,800+ feet,
or over 24 miles. He was in a
space-type capsule hooked to an
air balloon. It was really quite in-
teresting with all the technology
they have now days. You actually
got to watch him do the check list
before he stepped out of the cap-
sule onto the step, and then fall
into space to free fall to earth at a
speed of 833.9 mph, until his
parachute opened at 5,000!! It
took about 9 minutes. His landing
didn’t even look like he’d fallen
more than the 5,000 ft. They said
this was also something that
jump could be be used in the fu-
ture in case they ever need an es-
cape route for a space launch
should something happen. It was
absolutely mind boggling! I just
can’t believe anyone would have
that kind of nerve. He’d been
working on this for 5 years.
The cross country season came
to an end last week. The Region
5B Meet was held last Wednes-
day at Philip. None of our varsity
qualified for the State Meet, but
came close. Congratulations to all
our runners on a great season!
Congratulations to the Lady
Longhorns on their victories last
week. They are now 22-5 on the
season. They will be traveling to
Newell for games next Monday,
and will be hosting Takini next
Thursday, followed by the Dis-
trict Tournament on the 30th.
Congratulations also to the
Longhorn football team on their
win last week over Newell. They’ll
be facing Harding County, also
undefeated, this Thursday night
at home. We wish them the best.
It should be a really good game!
The first round of playoffs is next
Tuesday night. We don’t know
who and where at this time but
the Longhorns will be in it. Faith
should have the home field ad-
vantage from what I can figure
out.
The Faith Activities Booster
Club, I think, is sponsoring Don-
key Basketball this week as a
fund raiser. It will be held at the
Community Center this Saturday
night at 6:00. Should be a fun
evening of entertainment!

Central Meade County News
By Sandy Rhoden
Rural Neighbors was held on
Thursday with a good attendance
as well as a nice day in Central
Meade County.
The Faith girls varsity volley-
ball team has been successful in
their recent games with Eagle
Butte and Dupree. They were
scheduled to play Timber Lake on
Tuesday, which has been proven
to be good competition. The vol-
leyball season will come to a close
about the 3rd week in November
which is the State Tournament.
On Friday, Senator Larry Rho-
den and Sandy visited the Bear
Butte School and met with fifth
graders and first graders. There
were well over one hundred stu-
dents in each grade. He talked
about the lawmaking process in
Pierre and aspects of being a leg-
islator. The fifth grade students
asked very thoughtful questions
and had very good answers as
well.
Also on Friday, Kristi Noem
paid Sturgis area residents a visit
at the HO Anderson building on
Main Street. She gave an update
and then took questions from the
audience. She also visited with
different folks, which made her
late for her next event in Wall for
homecoming. There were approx-
imately fifty attendees.
Following Congresswoman
Noem's visit, legislators Senator
Larry Rhoden, Representative
Dean Wink, and Representative
Jacklyn Sly went through the bal-
lot initiatives and explained their
meanings and took questions as
well.
The wonderful weather condi-
tions made for a great weekend
for all kinds of occasions that in-
cluded both work and play. Sandy
Rhoden, her sister Deb Schnell
and mother, Marlyn Murphy at-
tended a banquet luncheon and
program hosted by the Eye and
Tissue Bank in Rapid City on Sat-
urday. It honored both tissue
donors and recipients and there
were some special stories shared
along with presentation of silk
roses to each family member.
On Sunday afternoon, about
forty ladies joined in celebrating
Francie Brink's fiftieth birthday
at the Community Baptist
Church fellowship room. The
ladies took part in games about
Francie, a slide show, and a hu-
morous skit put on by Ninu
Spring and Deb Schnell. They
then enjoyed hors d'oeuvres and
visiting. The decor was a fall
theme and ladies from Sturgis,
New Underwood, Maurine, Elm
Springs and all parts of Meade
County enjoyed the celebration.
Also on Sunday was a special
90th birthday celebration for
Doris Mickelson. It was hosted by
Connie and Darrel Mickelson and
family in her home. A good num-
ber from the community at-
tended. We wish Doris the best as
she has been a caring member of
our community for so very many
years. She had a strong desire to
see children learn during her
teaching tenure in Meade 46-1
and gave many hours to teaching
Sunday School, and worked to
promote family values through
involvement in Western Dakota
Families.
For those looking for some
good entertainment, there will be
a night of Donkey Basketball in
Faith next Saturday evening.
This also serveds as a fund raiser
for the senior class.
Voter registration ends in a
few days, so if one is interested in
voting this year he or she should
fill out a form very soon.
Though we have been enjoying
mild temperatures and some
pleasant days, it is important to
remember to pray for rain. The
area remains very dry and we
have had no significant rainfall
for quite some time.

What a sad time to write the
news when I begin with the loss
of an area youth and the injuries
of three other people. Arleigh
McLellan of rural Dupree, was
killed in a head-on collision Fri-
day night. He and a friend were
coming home from Mitchell Vo
Tech School for a weekend with
family. I did not know him but I
was saddened to hear this and
think of the pain and sorrow his
family and friends were going
through. Losing a promising
youth from our area means a loss
for the entire community and
state. I was uneasy seeing all the
news about the wreck on Face-
book. Did all the family know or
did a young or elderly relative
learn all this on their Facebook
page? One post named another
youth as “not making it” to the
hospital. What a shock if someone
would call and say, “I’m so sorry
to hear about your grandson.
What can I do to help?” and you
have no idea what they mean.
Our world has brought such in-
stant news that we need to be
thoughtful when we start posting
to a public site. Last night some
were careful and said “boys or
friends from high school” but did
not give names. I would like to
ask all users to not post names of
accident victims or details for at
least 24 hours on a wide open
public viewed site. Please give the
family a chance to deal with the
emotional turmoil and the neces-
sary arrangements. If you think
someone needs to know CALL
them on a phone or email them so
they are the only ones who read
or hear the news. Barbara
Schrempp and daughter Jennifer
were injured in the other car. Our
prayers go out to them and their
family also.
Condolences are also sent to
the family of Lula Mae Wilken.
She was another good ole ranch
wife who knew how to deal with
the ups and downs of country life
while making her community a
better place to live. I hope that
her grandchildren learned all
they could from her cause she was
a peach!
Funeral services for Delma
Widow were held Tuesday. Her
husband Ed Widow was a former
Tribal Council member. Delma
and Ed were some of the commu-
nity members who promoted edu-
cation and good schools on the
Cheyenne Reservation. Our sym-
pathy goes out to the Widow fam-
ily.
Friday morning Andy Hallock
of  Communication Services for
the deaf  visited our home to in-
stall a special phone for the hear-
ing impaired. We received the
phone free of charge by filling out
a simple one page form and send-
ing it to Mr. Hallock’s office in
Rapid City. His toll free  phone
number is 888-304-2311. On our
monthly phone bill we all have a
15 cent charge that goes toward
communication for the hearing
impaired. If you wear hearing
aides or have a hearing impair-
ment you can qualify. South
Dakota is among 47 states who
have this type of program but our
state is one of the simplest states
to get qualified in. There are no fi-
nancial requirements, just have a
need and a South Dakota phone
number and address, then fill out
the form and submit.
Part of the reason for the spe-
cial phone is Quirt. As many of
you already know my grandson,
Quirt, has worn hearing aides
since the age of 8 months and my
husband, Harold, has worn them
for about two years. Hearing
aides have made a tremendous
difference in all our lives. When
Quirt was born the RC hospital
told Lacey and Robert he would
never talk, start sign language. If
you’ve been around Quirt you
know he takes after the Thomp-
sons…he rattles on all the time,
we just can’t make it all out yet
but he’s getting there. He wears
his hearing aides every day all
day unless one quits or he gets
something wrong. Harold is the
same. Harold puts his on first
thing in the morning and takes
them out to shower at night. You
old codgers that won’t get them
are damn fools! Today’s aides are
so small most folks don’t see

Kenneth A. Beer, Rapid City,
South Dakota, has been promoted
to managing partner for Modern
Woodmen of America.
Founded in 1883, Modern
Woodmen of America touches
lives and secures futures. The fra-
ternal financial services organiza-
tion offers financial products and
fraternal member benefits to in-
dividuals and families throughout
the United Sates.
Beer named managing partner
them, volume levels are ad-
justable and batteries last 7-8
days for Harold and Quirt. I am
so happy not shouting at the
hubby, not trying to talk over a
too loud TV set and not being em-
barrassed for him when he talked
over other folks because he didn’t
know they were talking. Yes, they
are expensive and they are worth
every penny!
I started the following article
about Quirt a couple years ago so
I fixed it up a little but I thought
I’d include it.
My grandson, Quirt Won-
dercheck, started preschool this
week. To some that’s not much
but to his parents it’s a gift…you
see when he was born the hospi-
tal staff at Rapid City told Lacey
and Robert he was totally deaf
and would never talk. Thankfully
she’s a tough girl who doesn’t be-
lieve everything she’s told.
Within the first few months of
Quirt’s life his folks set to work to
learn all they could about raising
a child who is hearing impaired
or deaf. Their first hurdle was
finding a competent person to
evaluate his hearing. The big
question: was he deaf or not?
Rapid City had them back for
hearing tests that said he couldn’t
hear anything but the lady didn’t
really know what she was doing.
Lacey found that there are only
two pediatric audiologists in the
state of South Dakota, one at
Sioux Falls and one at Pierre. The
one at Pierre, Julia Jones, works
at Audiology Associates. Julia
was a Godsend! Julia gave them
the answer, NO, he’s NOT TO-
TALLY DEAF, he’s hearing im-
paired. Someone who wears
glasses is not blind and someone
who wears hearing aides is not
deaf. There’s a big difference! By
the age of eight months Quirt was
wearing hearing aides. This must
have brought an immense change
to his little world. He had missed
out on so many sounds! Mom,
Lacey, also went to work and
found a program called Birth to
Three. Birth to Three is a free
program of the South Dakota De-
partment of Education. Quirt had
a speech therapist came to his
house once a week for a therapy
session. His therapist was  Miss
Christy   from Rapid City. He
loved Miss Christy and eagerly
awaited her visits. His speech im-
proved by leaps and bounds.
When he turned three his speech
was turned over to the Sturgis
School District, who needed a lot
of prompting to get anything
done. Now he has speech one day
a week for one hour at the Enning
School. His speech is possible be-
cause he wears hearing sides
every day, all day that his par-
ents purchased to the tune of
$4,000.00. No insurance, does not
pay for any of this because they
claim, GET THIS…hearing aides
are cosmetic. Is that about the
dumbest thing you’ve ever heard?
How do hearing aides make you
look better? The South Dakota
state legislator talked of doing
something to change this but
waited on the Obama health care
law. I think they are also plan-
ning on Hell freezing over at the
same time. (If you talk to a repre-
sentative or Senator you might
mention this law needs some
changes.) Quirts mom, Lacey,
went back to school and now has
a degree in Speech and Lan-
guage. Our entire family is more
aware of children with disabilities
and special needs in particular
impaired hearing.  I think God
knew what he was doing when he
sent this very special little boy to
enrich all our lives.  
Tucker Hudson spent the week
in the Rapid City hospital, with 6
broken ribs and punctured lung.
He was dismissed on Saturday
and is resting at home. Bev spent
the week with him and stayed
with Bill and Teri Brown family.
Dick and Gene Hudson of Mid-
land, visited for a bit at Tucker
Hudsons Sunday afternoon.
Congratulations to Winston
Brown as he was picked to be one
of the Jr High contestants in the
NRCA Rodeo later this fall. He is
the grandson of Larry and Val
Brown and Tucker and Bev Hud-
son.
Colan Kellogg of Rapid City
spent the weekend helping out at
Tucker Hudsons after his acci-
dent.
Finals for the Sitting Bull Col-
lege Youth Rodeo Series were
held this past Saturday at Fort
Yates. Haley Enright, daughter of
Mitch and Colette Enright of
Timber Lake won the All Around
Saddle in her age division. Sierra
Enright, also of Timber Lake,
daughter of Richard Enright and
Cindy Zabel won the All Around
Saddle in her age division. Both
girls are granddaughters of Den-
verand Adele (Thompson) En-
right.
I kept a doctor appointment in
Faith Friday afternoon, then
went to visit George and Annelle
Afdahl. George had back surgery
in Rochester, Minn. last week to
repair the mess that was made in
one of our area hospitals. He has
at least two months before he can
do anything and six months of re-
covery. We had supper with them,
then took in the Faith vs Newell
football game. Saturday night we
attended the reception and wed-
ding dance in Faith for Max and
Katrina Thompson. Others from
this area who attended were De,
Kay, Glen, Elke, Cashley, and
Koyle King, Jim and Vonnie
O’Dea, Denise, Cody, Harley,
Tristen, Trinity and Merle Weyer,
and Laurel Schultes and grand-
daughters. Corinna Thompson’s
mother, Mary Mooney, had come
to help Corinna with the food
prep and attend the event.
Verna Schad of Lantry also at-
tended part of the wedding
dance/reception for Max and Kat-
rina. Her husband Syd is home
but needs someone with him at
all times. Verna is still working
one day a week at the Faith Clinic
so call the gals and check as
Verna’s days vary.
I was wondering what year the
Faith Legion Hall was built? I
know my folks, Irvin and Marian,
had their wedding dance in Faith
in 1945. I always assumed it was
at the Legion Hall. Can anyone
tell me if that could be correct? I
would like to complement the
CAT Team and all others who as-
sisted in saving this old building
from the burn pile! It had gotten
pretty dumpy and trashy. I know
how much work you folks put into
it. It is a very necessary and use-
ful building in our little commu-
nity. Well done!

The national elections of 2012
come at a critical time for the
United States, its veterans and
citizens.
The American Legion was
formed for times like these. As
our servicemen and women re-
turn from Iraq and Afghanistan,
they are met with daunting chal-
lenges at home. These soldiers,
sailors, airmen and Marines are
greeted by a dismal economy.
They need jobs, business opportu-
nities or education pathways that
can propel them from military
service to prosperous careers.
They face these external chal-
lenges while making profound in-
ternal adjustments. At home, life
no longer includes roadside
bombs or rocket propelled
grenades. For many the adjust-
ment will be difficult. Some will
bear the scars of war, visible or
invisible, for the rest to their
lives.
It is imperative that we pro-
vide them compassionate, effi-
cient and easily accessible health
care. Because of their sacrifices
on behalf of our nation, they have
unique health care needs, they
qualify for benefits they earned
and deserve, and our nation has a
sacred obligation top help them.
Sadly, veterans are discovering
the line for VA benefits is more
than 900,000 applications long.
These delayed case decisions af-
fect those from the greatest gen-
eration to the current generation.
Veterans who live in rural parts
of the United States must travel
hundreds of miles to see doctors,
care for female veterans is only
now beginning to match that of
male veterans, and waiting times
to see VA specialists are intolera-
ble long in many parts of the
country.
The American Legion stands
with VA in the mission to “care
for him who has borne the battle,
and for his widow and his or-
phan,” this means health care,
timely decisions on claims, educa-
tion, career opportunities, home
loans and survivor benefits. The
American Legion works daily on
behalf of veterans, military per-
sonnel and communities.
Often, it takes patience, as
with the passage last summer of
the Veteran Skills to Jobs Act,
which the Legion pushed for
years. Sometimes, it takes agility,
in the form of National Emer-
gency Fund disaster relief for
communities, or temporary finan-
cial assistance for struggling mil-
itary families with minor
children.
Beyond these challenges, there
are daily reminders that Amer-
ica’s morals and cultural values
are under siege. Activists aim to
distort and twist the core values
of patriotism, morality and reli-
gion that gave birth to our nation,
under God. They aim to kick God
out of our public squares, deem
the destruction of the U. S. Flag
an acceptable form of free speech,
and put political correctness
ahead of moral integrity.
This article is for election in-
cumbents and challengers alike,
voters and others who wish to
learn more about the American
Legion’s positions on key national
issues. As the largest organiza-
tion of wartime veterans, the Le-
gion’s voice is representative of
more than 4 million veterans and
patriotic Americans. These posi-
tions are guided by nearly 100
years of consistent advocacy and
resolutions from the grassroots of
the organization, local American
Legion posts and veterans in
every congressional district of
America. This is constituency
that lobbies with principles, not
pocketbooks, to improve our na-
tion, which they have proven is
worth fighting for.
The American Legion since its
inception in 1919, has remained
committed to four key pillars of
advocacy and support, Veterans
affairs and ehabilitation, national
security, Americanism, and chil-
dren and youth.

Drew Vance, David Ruth, and
Katie Haines presented their re-
search papers at the West River
History Conference in Rapid City
on October 5. The theme of this
year’s conference was “Romanti-
cism of the West: Touching Our
Roots.” Drew wrote about the
building of the railroad and its
importance to the history of Faith
in his paper “End of the Line for
the Railroad Becomes the Little
Oasis on the Prairie.” David’s re-
search addressed how people and
the media spread stories of what
happened in the West faster than
the facts could be checked in “Ro-
manticism Gone Awry: A City
Slicker’s Guide to the West.” In
“Dreams, Drudgery, and Disen-
chantment,” Katie described
what life on the prairie was like
for the women who homesteaded
here. Their papers will be printed
in a book, which will be available
at next year’s conference. 
Their teacher, Patti Storm, re-
ceived the 2012 Zoom Zoom
Award for Preservation of History
of South Dakota and the Dakota
Territory. “What better way to do
that than encouraging and men-
toring these young people,” stated
Shebby Lee, WRHC President.

The Faith School 6th grade
class created a presentation of the
Faith Public/School Library for
the South Dakota Library Associ-
ation Conference that was held in
Huron, Oct. 3-5.  Library Super-
visor, Angela Ostrander was se-
lected to give a poster session at
the conference that included the
6th grade presentation.  Follow-
ing the session, Ms. Ostrander
replied – “Librarian professionals
who viewed the presentation
were in awe and impressed with
the maturity of our students in
showing their library.”  The proj-
ect was a collaboration between
Faith School district staff – Mrs.
Alison Grueb, Computer Applica-
tions teacher; Mrs. Marcia Dutton
– 6th grade classroom teacher;
and Ms. Angela Ostrander, Li-
brary Supervisor. 
Students gained experience in
speaking skills, using ipads,
music and script writing to create
an informative presentation. The
6th grade class is comprised of:
Kyler Carmichael, Seth Drum,
Rowdy Fischbach, Lenae Haines,
Jerin Halligan, Brooklyn Hanson,
Keyaira Kirkley, Mikenzy Miller
and Jayden Shoemaker.

of the drought this growing
season, soil sampling after har-
vest becomes very important this
year says Ron Gelderman, SDSU
Soils Extension Specialist.
"Soil sampling should be part
of any nutrient management pro-
gram but is even more important
after a dry year with limited
yields," Gelderman said. "For
those fields that were severely
moisture stressed, available ni-
trogen (N) carryover may be
higher than normal."
Gelderman says all growers
should take 2-foot soil samples
throughout their fields and have
them analyzed for nitrate-N; es-
pecially for those fields going into
a non-legume crop.
"If the rotation hasn't yet been
set, sample and analyze as if it
will be a non-legume crop. As the
old adage goes 'It is better to have
it and not need it, than to need it
and not have it.' The additional
sampling cost is inconsequential
compared to potential fertilizer
savings or yield gain," he said.
Gelderman says that past
drought years have shown higher
than average carryover levels.
For example, the average carry-
over nitrate-N level following
corn, is about 70 pounds per acre.
In a dry year, he says it would not
be unusual to measure 100 to 120
pounds per acre of carryover N
after poor yields on some of these
moisture stressed fields.
"That is a difference of 30 to 50
pounds or about $18 to $30 an
acre in savings with today's N
prices. Some laboratories have
been reporting average carryover
nitrate-N values of 20 pounds an
acre higher than average for this
fall," he said.
However, Gelderman says this
is not always the case. Which is
why testing is a must this fall.
"One of our moisture-stressed
nitrogen rate trials on corn near
Beresford had near average car-
ryover levels. In that case, if the
grower 'guessed' at carryover lev-
els of 30 pounds an acre more
than average, yield might very
well be 5 to 10 bushel an acre
lower than would be with the
proper test and recommendation.
The point is we cannot predict
what the carryover levels will be.
Therefore, every field should be
tested."
Because of the fact that within
many fields there could be high
carryover N variability that may
reflect the high yield variability
due to differential soil moisture
within that field, Gelderman rec-
ommends zone sampling.
"A zone sampling program
based on yield zones may show
some large nitrogen fertilizer sav-
ings for next year and will put the
nitrogen where it is needed and
not oversupply other areas of the
field where it is not," he said.      
Given the poor yields in some
fields, there would be less phos-
phorus (P) and potassium (K) re-
moved with the grain as well.
However, Gelderman says meas-
uring the availability of carryover
P and K is more difficult than for
nitrogen.
"The soil P and K test may
have increased slightly (due to
less removed with the lower
yields) but yield, tillage, residue
removed, soils, precipitation and
The South Dakota Game, Fish
and Parks Department has been
monitoring die-offs of white-tailed
deer across portions of the state
and must make adjustments to
some deer hunting units.
Epizootic Hemorrhagic Dis-
ease (EHD) has been confirmed in
white-tailed deer, and many of
the deer deaths being reported by
the public are suspected to be the
result of that disease.
In response to the disease, all
unsold licenses will be removed
from the following deer hunting
units for the West River deer sea-
son: Bennett County: 11A-09 and
11B-17; Gregory County: 30A-19
and 30B-19; and Jackson County:
39B-09. In addition, 200 licenses
will be removed for Meade
County: 49B-09.
In response to the deer die-offs
in eastern SD, the GFP Commis-
sion took emergency action at
their October 4 meeting which
provided Secretary Vonk the au-
thority to immediately reduce the
number of licenses available prior
to the second drawing of the East
River Deer hunting season.
As a result of the Secretary’s
actions, all unsold licenses have
been removed from deer hunting
units in Bon Homme, Hutchin-
son, Yankton, Clay, Union and
Charles Mix counties.
In addition, the Commission
and Secretary Vonk authorized
the elimination of all unsold li-
censes in southern Perkins
County as a result of further EHD
developments there.
“As the department continues
to monitor the outbreak of EHD
over the next couple of weeks, we
will provide additional recom-
mendations to the Game, Fish
and Parks Commission at its Oc-
tober meeting to address East
River deer units,” said GFP Sec-
retary Jeff Vonk. “Currently, the
department plans to recommend
that the commission remove all
unsold licenses in Bon Homme,
Hutchinson, and Yankton coun-
ties and make significant reduc-
tions to leftover licenses in Brule
and Charles Mix counties for the
second draw of the East River
deer season. Between now and
the next commission meeting, we
will continue our surveillance ef-
forts with the possibility of addi-
tional license reductions.”
Aside from conducting ground
surveillance and collecting re-
ports from the public, GFP is also
using aerial flights to help deter-
mine the severity of deer mortali-
ties.
“Reports of dead deer are com-
ing from across the state, and in
some instances landowners are
telling traditionally hosted
hunters that opportunities will be
limited,” Vonk said. “With that in
mind, GFP is notifying deer
hunters that they can voluntarily
return a deer license for any sea-
son prior to the start of that re-
spective season and receive a full
refund.” 
Hunters desiring a refund for a
deer license should send their li-
cense, including all associated
tags, to: GFP Licensing Office;
20641 SD Highway 1806; Fort
Pierre, SD 57532.
EHD is common in white-
tailed deer and is typically de-
tected in late summer or early
fall. The virus is spread by a bit-
ing midge and causes extensive
internal hemorrhaging. Many
deer exhibit no clinical signs and
appear perfectly healthy, while
others may have symptoms such
as respiratory distress, fever, and
swelling of the tongue. With
highly virulent strains of the
virus, deer can be dead within 1-
3 days.  In an attempt to combat
the high fever, affected deer are
often found in low-lying areas or
near rivers, ponds and other wa-
ters.
GFP continues to ask individ-
uals who see sick deer or find
dead deer to contact their local
conservation officer or call the
Pierre office at 605-773-5913.
EHD is not infectious to hu-
mans. For more information on
the EHD virus visit
http://gfp.sd.gov/wildlife/dis-
eases/epizootic-hemorrhagic-
disease.aspx.
temperatures all can influence
how much of these nutrients be-
come available for next year's
crop. It is best to follow soil test
guidelines for those nutrients and
not give a "credit" for any unused
nutrients."
In a dry fall, he says it is not
unusual to find K tests even lower
than in a "normal" year. The rea-
son is that the lower rainfall after
harvest has not moved the K from
the plant residue into the soil.
Potassium will move quite readily
with water while plant N and P
are tied up with organic com-
pounds and will depend on micro-
bial decomposition become they
become available.

IMPORTANT DATES TO RE-
MEMBER:
October 26 – Last day to sign

November 15 – Report Crop
Acreage for Perennial Forage,
winter Wheat and Rye to FSA
Ziebach County approved for
ECP
Ziebach County has been ap-
proved for ECPDrought, signup
begins September 25, 2012 and
runs through October 26, 2012. If
you need assistance on perma-
nent or temporary water develop-
ment to replace a failed water
source and there is sufficient
grazing you can apply for wells,
pipelines, tanks, springs and
water hauling to enable grazing
of pastures that have failed water
source. Stop in the office to com-
plete an application. We have

2013 Certification: Grass-Al-
falfa-Fall Seeded Crop
Producers of perennial forage
(alfalfa & mixed forages)(for graz-
ing and hay) and fall-seeded
small grains (winter wheat &
rye)  must submit their 2013
acreage report for those crops to
the Farm Service Agency, and to
their crop insurance agent, by No-
vember 15, 2012. In prior years,
reports for these crops were not
due to FSA until July 15. This
change is part of an initiative at
the national level to align acreage
reporting dates between FSA and
the Risk Management Agency
(RMA), and reduce the crop re-
porting burden on producers.
Crop acreage reports are es-
sential to maintaining eligibility
for multiple FSA program bene-
fits, and establishing a record of
historical cropping.  Timely
acreage reporting not only main-
tains a producer’s eligibility for
traditional conservation, price
support and production program
benefits, but is also a requirement
for critical disaster program as-
sistance.
2013 Acreage reporting dates
For the 2013 crop year, new
acreage reporting dates have
been implemented as part of the
Acreage Crop Reporting Stream-
lining Initiative. This process is
intended to streamline the com-
mon processes within USDA
(FSA and RMA).
You are reminded to make
note of these important dates to
ensure you do not miss out on any
USDA benefits.

Meade County Deputy Director of
Planning Bill Rich, came back before the
Board on Wednesday and did a quick
overview of the same.
Action, Discussion, Information: B.
Form of Intent
Meade County Deputy Director of
Planning Bill Rich came before the
Board to present a form of intent for Mr.
Leroy Doty. Rich explained that there is
an old farm house that has been used for
storage for the past 23 years and the
same is falling down. Mr. Doty wants to
tear down the house and replace it with
a mobile home for a relative to live in.
Mr. Doty wants then to try and obtain a
variance.
There are several possibilities the
Board was presented regarding the
same:
1. Grant a variance to subdivide (plat)
the 1.7 acre lot into 2 lots with the re-
quirement to demolish the old farm
house, (the lot size would not meet Or-
dinance No. 20 so a variance would be
required and Mr. Doty would need to go
through the platting process. Note; there
are many existing smaller lots of 0.4
acres +/- or smaller within Black Hawk.),
2. Grant the variance to allow 2 mo-
bile homes on the property requiring the
farm house to be demolished; this option
would be the first to be permitted without
a hardship variance,
3. The owner could possibly buy
more property and subdivide or plat in
accordance with our ordinance,
4. Deny the request.
Aker stated for the record “The pur-
pose of this form of intent is to try to give
the applicant an idea of which direction
the Board may go so they do not have to
go through survey expenses and notify-
ing neighbors for something that may not
be approved.”
Leroy and Charlofette Doty showed
the Commissioners a picture of the ex-
isting homes on the land and discussed
the options with the Board.
Motion that the Board would intend
on granting a variance for a subdivision
of the lot, which would require a septic
inspection on the existing septic and an
installation of a separate septic system
for the second home, and also they
would have to meet any concerns by the
Planning Board. A roll call vote taken.
Motion by Rausch, second by Cam-
mack.
Final Resolution: Motion Carries.
Yea: Cammack, Rausch, Heidgerken.
Nay: Aker, Creed.

9. Recess Meeting @ 5:00 PM Re-
convene October 3, 2012 Public Hear-
ing 10 AM
Action, Discussion: A. 2nd Reading
on Proposed Changes to Ordinance #11
Meade County Director of Equalization
Kirk Chaffee came before the Board to
present proposed changes for second
reading on Ordinance #11 - An Ordi-
nance Licensing and Regulating Ped-
dlers, Transient Merchants, Solicitors,
Professional People, Businesses and
Trades Operating Outside the Bound-
aries of an Incorporated Municipality.
Chairman Aker then asked if there
were any proposals/amendments from
the public or members of the Commis-
sion.
Commissioner Creed asked for Com-
missioner Assistant Jerry Derr to share
his overall observations on collecting
vendor fees over the past few years and
do an overview of the Ordinance and of
the fees since the Ordinance’s exis-
tence.
Motion to approve the second read-
ing of Ordinance #11 as amended.
Motion by Creed, second by Rausch.
Discussion was then taken after the
motion and second.
Rod Woodruff, Owner of Buffalo Chip
Campground asked the Board to discuss
Section V. Enforcement (C.) Any Ven-
dor/Host operating in violation of this or-
dinance shall be prohibited from
obtaining a Vendor/Host License for a
period of 400 days, though the violator
may request a bond to insure future
compliance in lieu of the prohibition.
Such bond shall be at the discretion of
Meade County. Meade County Deputy
State’s Attorney Ken Chleborad gave his
legal opinion regarding the bonding of
the same.
The motion was then voted on to ap-
prove the second reading.
Final Resolution: Motion Carries.
Yea: Aker, Creed, Cammack,
Rausch, Heidgerken.
Motion to adopt amended Ordinance
#11 - An Ordinance Licensing and Reg-
ulating Peddlers, Transient Merchants,
Solicitors, Professional People, Busi-
nesses and Trades Operating Outside
the Boundaries of an Incorporated Mu-
nicipality.
Motion by Creed, second by Hei-
dgerken.
Final Resolution. Motion Carries.
Yea: Aker, Creed, Cammack,
Rausch, Heidgerken.
The Board then discussed what the
applicable vendor fees should be and if
there was a consensus of the Board in
setting the same.
Motion to set the vendor fee at
$450.00 for the year 2013 and $500.00
for the year 2014.
Motion by Creed, second by Rausch.
The floor was then opened to the
public for discussion.
Mr. Woodruff discussed with the
Board that the minor increases really do
not make a lot of difference. A few will be
lost, but Woodruff feels the Board should
really look at the traffic counts because
nothing has really changed with the size
of the Rally. The same has leveled off
since 2003.
Commissioner Creed asked for clari-
fication on the County’s actual costs in-
cluding Sheriff, Jail, and the County
taxing structure in these facilities. Direc-
tor of Equalization Kirk Chaffee talked
about the tax structure on such Rally fa-
cilities.
Commissioner Heidgerken asked Mr.
Woodruff if the anniversary years are
better for vendors or about the same.
Mr. Woodruff stated that yes the anniver-
sary years are better.
Sturgis City Manager Daniel Ainsley
came before the Board and discussed
that the costs are to the property owner,
which City or County has no control over.
Discussion was had regarding sales tax
which the County does not receive, in
which the County has very few revenue
streams from the Rally. The City would
like to partner with anyone to increase
the attendance of future Rallies. The City
will possibly be looking at charging by a
square footage in the future.
Commissioner Rausch asked that Mr.
Woodruff come back up before the
Board and respond to how the City does
their fees and if the County would look at
the same what would the impact be on
the County.
Toni Woodruff discussed with the
Board that she feels the vendors like pre-
dictability and consistency so they can
prepare when they come to the Rally.
Woodruff feels that if the County raises
it fees it would be better to do it in a small
increment in one year, but is against rais-
ing it at all.
The Board then took a break and will
return in five minutes.
A substitute motion was offered by
Cammack to leave vendor fees as they
currently stand at $400.00 for 2013, in
2014 raise it to $450.00 and in 2015
raise it to $500.00.
Motion by Cammack, second by Hei-
dgerken.
Discussion on the substitute motion.
Chairman Aker would like to be cre-
ative and possibly forward sell the ven-
dors license at a discount. Aker further
discussed the possibility of a County pol-
icy that if you want to sell alcohol, that
you cannot do it on AG land status. It is
a cleaner way to off-set our costs if the
campgrounds were all commercial. Aker
also feels that the fee should be based
on what our economy is doing and would
like to see a decrease.
Cammack would like to alter his mo-
tion, if the second would agree. Cam-
mack asked Heidgerken for his thoughts
on the same. Heidgerken offered maybe
the possibility of leaving the same for
2013 at $400.00, 2014 at $425.00, 2015
at $550 and then dropping the same to
$475, so we would have a peak and then
a drop.
Creed would be happy to amend the
first motion and stated to the Board that
in 2010, when they were working on this
same ordinance, she offered giving a

Continued from previouis page
10% discount for the fee if purchased
thirty (30) days in advance and the same
was voted down. If this amendment was
offered again to her original motion now
they could keep the increase and if pur-
chased early it would only end up as a
$5.00 increase.
Cammack, with permission of his
second, would amend his substitute mo-
tion to just address the year 2013 only
and leave the vendor fee at $400.00,
and offer a 10% discount on the fee as
long as payment is received thirty (30)
days prior to the Rally.
Discussion was had on the amended
substitute motion.
George Mandas, Mayor of the City of
Summerset, came before the Board and
talked about how the City hires addi-
tional staff during the Rally, which costs
them additional wages. This cost is in-
curred by the City and its residents also
pay Meade County taxes. Mandas asked
that the Board think about raising the fee
to offset the 10% discount.
Creed offered an amendment to the
substitute motion of $450.00 for 2013,
$500.00 for 2014 (10% discount already
in substitute motion). Motion died for lack
of a second.
Motion by D Creed, second NONE.
A roll call vote was then taken on the
Cammack substitute motion as follows:
Substitute motion to just address the
year 2013 only and leave the vendor fee
at $400.00 and offer a 10% discount on
the fee as long as payment is received
thirty (30) days prior to the Rally. A roll
call vote was taken.
Motion by Cammack, second by Hei-
dgerken.
Final Resolution. Motion Carries.
Yea: Aker, Cammack, Rausch, Hei-
dgerken.
Nay: Creed
Creed would like the record to reflect
“that the last two years I favored a reduc-
tion if paid in advance, but a reduction
without an increase in the base rate, is a
net reduction in the vendor fee and could
possibly have a negative financial ef-
fect.”
Heidgerken for the record stated “it is
up to the campgrounds now. The County
has actually did something for the ven-
dors so they will come.”
10. Dinner Break
Action: A. Recess for Dinner

ing.

Action: C. MCHA Public Housing "In
Lieu of Taxes" FY2012 End.
Meade County Housing Representa-
tive Sherri Scudder came before the
Board and would like to have the “in lieu
of taxes” waived by the County and re-
turned to Meade County Housing. Scud-
der explained that they have had a
couple of unforeseen issues in that the
boilers need to be replaced and the fire
alarm system updated. Scudder also ex-
plained that they have endeared budget
cuts of up to 20%
Motion to approve waiving the “in-lieu
of taxes” in the amount of $11,422.26
and the Auditor return the check back to
