It was all about choices last
Wednesday for the freshman
classes from Faith, Bison, Lem-
mon, Dupree and Newell.
Faith hosted the Freshman
Impact Program sponsored by
C.O.R.E. (Community Organized
Resources for Educating Youth).
Local law enforcement, highway
patrolmen, area fire and rescue
teams donated their time for this
Students were divided into
groups with a leader to visit the
various learnng sites, including:
wrecked vehicle, obstacle course,
line walk, boat safety, seatbelt
safety, simulated drunk driving,
drug dog handling, mock acci-
dent scene and a mock sentenc-
ing hearing.
Area fire and rescue teams
demonstrated the equipment
used at an accident scene in re-
moving someone trapped in a ve-
hicle. Basically they remove the
car from the passenger. They
may have to remove the roof for
easier access to the individual.
Depending on the situation, the
dashboard may also have to be
removed. If there are several in
the vehicle they start with the
most critical.
At the boat safety center, stu-
dents learned about equipment
that should be on board, includ-
ing the proper life jackets and
fire extinguishers and their use.
It only takes about one
rollover of a vehicle for a person
to be thrown out. Seatbelts are
the law, so be sure to buckle up
every time you get in your vehi-
cle. You never know when you
could be involved in a rollover, or
accident of any type.
A HP narcotics dog handler
was there with his dog, Rex. The
officer told students that drug
dogs are not used for criminal ac-
itivity, only for drug searches.
They don’t normally bite, but if
they do it is a serious bite. These
dogs and their handler undergo
6 weeks of training together.
They work on sniffing out five
different drugs, and these dogs
can find any drug made of these
five ingredients. Rex demon-
strated his skill by locating a
pack of drugs that were hidden
in the fire hall. Did you know
that one ounce of marijuana is a
sandwich bag stuffed full? So
when you hear of a marijuana
bust of 100 pounds, that is a
huge amount! One of the stu-
dents asked how long it takes to
become an HP. First you must be
21 years of age and have a high
school diploma. They do a thor-
ough background check, among
many other things. It is a nine
month process before you even
enter the academy.
Jennifer and Robin, trauma
nurses at Rapid City Regional
Hospital told students that acci-
dents can also occur in sports.
Two students put on jackets that
disabled one arm to demonstrate
how it feels to be handicapped
with the use of only one hand
and how difficult it is to cope
with it. Students were shown a
film involving teenagers injured
in vehicle and sporting acci-
dents. One should always be
aware of brain injuries. Some
overcome their condition, and
some never do. You have to learn
to live with it and make the best
of it. It makes a big difference in
your life and your future.
A couple stations had stu-
dents put on “drunk” goggles and
drive an obstacle course or walk
the line. They did these tasks
sober and then with the goggles
which impairs your vision and
affects your reactions. What a
difference! In teenagers it
doesn’t take much to be drunk.
A mother told the story of the
tragic loss of one of her sons in
an accident after they allowed
him to attend a party. He had
just graduated from high school.
They thought they were being

Golden West Telecommunica-
tions celebrated their annual
meeting, Saturday, September
28, 2013, in Wall, SD. More than
300 members attended the 61th
annual meeting. Jeff Nielsen,
President of the Board of Direc-
tors welcomed the members and
recognized Robert Hansen, from
Howes, SD, who retired after sit-
ting on the Board of Directors for
24 years.
Denny Law, General Man-
ager/CEO, reiterated Robert
Hansen’s many contributions,
and years of commitment to the
Cooperative. He also laid out the
many ways that Golden West
continues to invest in its mem-
bers. From expansion the toll-
free calling, which began in June
of 2013; the Golden West schol-
arship and economic develop-
ment programs; the video
programming access to state
high school events and collegiate
sports, Golden West continues to
invest in its members.
Law stated that Golden West
constructed just over 500 miles
of fiber optic cable connecting ap-
proximately 1,000 homes and
businesses. In 2013, Golden
West will construct close to 900
miles of fiber optic cable, which
extends our capacity for future
applications and boosts our In-
ternet speeds.
Mr. Law also touched the Fed-
eral Communications Commis-
sion’s recent rulings that affect
local service rates, future infra-
structure, and future technology.
“We will continue to fight until
policymakers understand the
importance of ensuring that ad-
vanced telecommunications re-
main a cornerstone investment
in rural America,” stated Law.
Three of the four board mem-
bers up for election were incum-
bents to the board they each ran
unopposed. Re-elected to four-
year terms were Bart Birkeland
to District VII, Dale Guptill to
District VI, and Kenneth Zick-
rick Jr., to District IV. Also serv-
ing a four-year term will be Jade
Hlavka who ran unopposed in
District I, the district that
Robert Hansen previously repre-
Brent Morris and the Western
Acoustics, from Hill City enter-
tained the crowd with some foot-
tapping classic country music.
During the meeting, several
customers won door prizes. The
grand prize of $500 went to Mary
Lou Claussen of Martin, SD.
Next year’s Annual Meeting will
be held September 27, 2014.

Harold Nelson Dutton, 86,
Spearfish, died on Sunday, Sep-
tember 22, 2013, at the David M.
Dorsett Healthcare Facility.
Funeral services were held
Friday, September 27, 2013, at
Immanuel Lutheran Church in
Zeona with the Rev. Marcia
Brennan officiating.  Burial fol-
lowed at the Dutton Family
Ranch Cemetery.
Visitation was held on Thurs-
day, September 26, 2013, at
Kinkade Funeral Chapel with a
prayer service following.
Harold was born on June 15,
1927, in Faith to Hiram and
Mary (Spencer) Dutton. He grew
up near Faith, on the Dutton
homestead ranch that was estab-
lished in 1914. He went to
Sorum High School until it
closed, and at that time he con-
tinued his schooling in Faith
until graduation. In 1943,
Harold started "going steady"
with his classmate, Vera
Collins.  When he and Vera grad-
uated, Vera was valedictorian
and Harold was the salutato-
rian.  Harold always maintained
that he would have beat Vera for
the valedictorian position if he
hadn't been the captain of the
basketball team. They got en-
gaged in 1945 in the summer
after graduation, and they were
married on June 25, 1947. After
they were married they went
back to the Dutton Ranch and
lived there until they moved to
Spearfish in 2007.
Harold was very involved in
the community and cared very
much about it. He gave selflessly
to many organizations including
being a 4-H leader for 25 years,
he was a church council member
and Sunday school teacher for
many years, he was on the Beck
School Board, he was the clerk of
the Beck Township for 61 years,
and he served as the Faith
Alumni President for one
year.  The Harold Dutton ranch
won the Conservation Award for
Range Manager of the Year for
all of his endless conservation ef-
forts.  He loved saving wild berry
Harold was known as a very
strong man with an iron grip.

He could pick a blacksmith anvil
up by the horn raising it from
the ground to a straight armed
position perpendicular to the
Harold had many different
quotes, such as his appreciation
for the land, "The land was here
before we were, and we are just
temporary stewards. We should
leave it better than we found it."
He liked to tell his children to
"Always take time to stop and
smell the roses."  His philosophy
on the conservation "Make the
water walk rather than run
through our conservation ef-
forts."  He liked to stop his vehi-
cle and get his children or
grandchildren out to look at a
beautiful sunset and remark
"You don't see that in
Chicago." Harold would always
tell his loved ones when they left
his house to "Stay over on the
hills, and look out for the wild
cowboys" which meant for them
to come back safe.
Harold was an avid music
lover and enjoyed playing the
harmonica, the mouth harp, and
spoons, and was a prolific car-
toon artist, but his greatest joy
was his family.
He is survived by his wife of
66 years, Vera of Spearfish; sons,
Melvin (Marcia) Dutton of Faith,
David (Bonnie) Dutton of
Spearfish, and Daryle (Stacey)
Dutton of Tempe, AZ; daughter,

children; and 15 great-

Jack was born in Manhattan,
NY on March 15, 1933, to John
and Helen (Kissane) Doyle, Irish
immigrants. The family later
moved to the Bronx. At 15, Doyle
joined the Army National
Guard’s “Fighting 69th” regi-
ment, serving in the guard until
He launched his career in ath-
letics in 1947, when he began
selling concessions in the stands
of Yankee Stadium, Ebbets Field
and the Polo Grounds. While
watching baseball greats like
Jackie Robinson and Mickey
Mantle, Jack became a lifelong
Yankee fan with an encyclopedic
knowledge of sports.
As a quarter-miler, he earned
a track scholarship to Power Me-
morial High School in Manhat-
tan. He also attended the
University of Wyoming on an
athletic scholarship, completing
bachelor’s and master’s degrees
in education in 1957 and 1966.
While in Laramie, Jack met
nursing student Lois Naslund, a
member of the FHS Class of
1952. They married at St.
Joseph’s Catholic Church on
June 30, 1955.
When Jack joined the Faith
High School staff in 1957, the
school building had just received
a major renovation. He taught
science and physical education
and coached football, track and
basketball, guiding the Long-
horns to a Moreau Conference
basketball title in 1960. He also
developed a summer youth base-
ball and basketball program. He
was a member of St. Joseph’s
Church and participated in the
National Guard unit at Lem-
From 1960-71, Jack taught
and coached at Lead High
School. During six years as head
basketball coach, the Golddig-
gers compiled a 72-37 record and
won or shared five Black Hills
Conference titles. Jack also di-
rected the city’s summer recre-
ation program for several years.
He served as president of the
South Dakota High School
Coaches Association in 1970.
Jack left LHS to join the staff
at the University of South
Dakota, where he spent 39 years
as a basketball coach, athletic di-
rector and fund development of-
ficer. During his sixteen years as
AD (1982-98), Coyote teams won
21 North Central Conference
(NCC) championships, played in
the 1986 NCAA football champi-
onship game, and earned consec-
utive appearances in the
Division II Elite Eight national
basketball tournament. He initi-
ated numerous upgrades to the
He was honored by USD, the
NCC and the National Associa-
tion of College Directors of Ath-
letics. One of his career
highlights was co-coaching the
USD and SDSU basketball play-
ers who made diplomatic history
in 1977 when they played Cuba’s
national team in Havana. Led by
Senators James Abourezk and
George McGovern, the South
Dakotans were the first U.S. del-
egation to enter Cuba after the
Bay of Pigs incident.
Jack found the mentoring of
his student athletes and coach-
ing staffs one of the most fulfill-
ing aspects of his career, and he
attributed much of his success to
their hard work and team play.
He had a deep respect for others
and love for his adopted state
and its people.
Jack’s survivors include Lois
and their children: Mary, Anne
(Hal) Rosner, Lisa Reynolds,
Daniel (Karen) and Kerry (all of
San Diego), and Michael (Dixie)

The Coming of
Obamacare: What it
Means for You
By Trudy Lieberman, Rural
Health News Service
The Affordable Care Act for-
mally makes its debut on Oct. 1
when its central feature, the
state shopping exchanges and
accompanying government sub-
sidies to help low-and moderate-
income people, opens for
Just how will this new act af-
fect you? First, it's important to
understand what the Affordable
Care Act is not. Contrary to what
many politicians and others have
claimed, it is not socialized med-
icine, and it is not government-
run health care. It's not even a
national health insurance sys-
tem like Medicare or the health
systems in other countries.
Delivery of health care in the
U.S. is mostly private with doc-
tors still being paid fees for their
services by insurance companies
or government payers like
Medicare. With the exception of
a handful of county or munici-
pally-funded facilities, hospitals
are privately run. While they
may be nominally not-for-profit
businesses and receive certain
tax advantages, they increas-
ingly concentrate on the bottom
line. In effect there's not much
difference between for-profit and
not-for-profit facilities.
At its core the Affordable Care
Act calls for improvements in ex-
isting American health insur-
ance arrangements. That
arrangement can loosely be
thought of as a kind of public/pri-
vate partnership with Medicare
available for those 65 and older
and some disabled people, Medi-
caid for people with very low in-
comes, and the commercial
market with for-profit and not-
for-profit insurance companies
selling to everyone else.
The problem has been that
some 50 million Americans---
about 232,000 in Nebraska,
716,000 in Colorado, and about
105,000 in South Dakota, accord-
ing to the Kaiser Family Foun-
dation---have no coverage from
any of those insurance arrange-
ments. Because most have had
no way to pay for care, they often
tried to do without it and devel-
oped serious health problems as
a result.
The Affordable Care Act aims
to bring more of those Americans
under the insurance tent prima-
rily by making more people eligi-
ble for Medicaid and by making
it easier to buy insurance in the
so-called individual market.
Most of those seeking insurance
will shop in the new state ex-
changes that will offer a range of
policies sold by private insurance
companies regulated by the
states. The federal government
can try to persuade insurers to
lower their rates if increases ex-
ceed 10 percent.
Even with these expansions
the Congressional Budget Office
estimated that some 30 million
Americans will continue to be
without health insurance. Some
will take the small penalty for
not having insurance, some will
be illegal immigrants, and others
are those with very low incomes
in states that have chosen not to
expand their Medicaid pro-
Insurers can no longer turn
down people who have preexist-
ing medical conditions. Even
very ill people will be guaranteed
the right to buy health insur-
ance. What you buy in the ex-
change depends on how much
you can spend and your toler-
ance for risk---the risk of having
to pay out of pocket for many of
your medical needs.
The cheapest insurance, so-
called bronze policies, will cover
only about 60 percent of your
medical bills. A silver plan will
cover 70 percent; a gold plan 80
percent; and a platinum plan 90
percent. The more coverage, the
higher the premium.
The policies offered in any of
these tiers are not identical,
however. One company's silver
policy may offer a low deductible
but charge policyholders high co-
payments or high coinsurance,
say 20 or 50 percent of a medical
bill. Another company's plan
might do the opposite-low coin-
surance or copayments as a
trade-off for a high deductible.
Because insurance is so ex-
pensive, some people shopping
on the exchanges will be eligible
for subsidies in the form of tax
credits. The subsidies are high-
est for individuals and families
with the lowest incomes, but peo-
ple with incomes up to 400 per-
cent of the federal poverty level
or about $94,000 for a family of
four could qualify for some help.
People can sign up on line or
in person at one of the agencies
in a state that provides help
from specially trained naviga-
tors. The buying decision will not
be an easy one, and buyers will
need all the help they can get.
My next column will explain how
to find these navigators and the
decisions people will have to

The family of Mary Deis would like to thank everyone
for the love and support shown during Mom’s
passing. We appreciate all of your kind gestures and
have treasured reading and hearing stories about
Mom and Dad that many of you have shared. There
have been so many who have shown kind acts to Mom
throughout the years. Mom always talked of how ap-
preciative and thankful she was to live in such a kind
and supportive community. A special thank you goes
out to the staff at Hans P. Peterson Memorial
Hospital and Nursing Home for taking such excellent
care of Mom these last couple of years. We also
extend a special thank you to Father Kari, Father
Kevin and the Sacred Heart Catholic Church for all
you have done for Mom. A memorial will be
established in Mom’s name to Hans P. Peterson
Memorial Hospital and Nursing Home, Sacred Heart
Catholic Church, and the Philip Bus Service.
Mom had such a strong faith in the Lord and
we find comfort knowing she lived a blessed
life here on earth and is now with Jesus, Dad, many
family and friends, and of course … her Baby.
God Bless

cancer last Thursday. Trinity
graduated with our daughter
Melissa. She was very active in
basketball, volleyball, and track.
It’s hard when you lose an older
family member, but to lose a
child is a really hard loss to bear.
She will be greatly missed by
family and friends. A memorial
service will be held at a later

10:15 Friday morning, the pep
rally at 12:45, parade at 2:00,
and the football game with
Lower Brule at 6:00. This will
also be Parents Night. The
alumni banquet will be held Sat-
urday night.
Monday was an exciting day
for our family. Our granddaugh-
ter and husband had twin girls
born to them in Fargo, ND.
Kiara and Brigid Gebes join 6
siblings at the home of Darren
and Karen. Grandparents Roch
and Rita Bestgen left early Tues-
day to travel there as Karen had
complications after the birth and
they went for support and to
lend a helping hand.  After many
prayers and by the grace of God
and the wisdom of her surgical
team she will be fine and  was
able to go home with the babies
on Saturday.  Now anxious to get
to see them in person.
Our community was also sad-
dened to hear of the passing of
Trinity Wood this week, however
she had been suffering a lot of
pain and now is through with
that.  Duane, JoAnn, Shawna
and Shannon were all with her
when she left for her heavenly
home from Charlotte, North Car-
olina.  Our condolences go out to
the Wood and Harwood families. 
Walter Fees had dinner with
his mom Faye Fees on Monday
and later in the afternoon Bruce
Fees came to Faye's to help her
load some of her things to take to
Eden on Tuesday.  She plans to
spend the winter up there.
Bruce drove his pickup up and
Faye drove her car as far as
Faith to leave at Rick's Auto for
some repairs and they both came
home on Wednesday.  Bruce
then left to go to Sturgis to visit
on Thursday before going on
home to Rozet, WY. Faye will go
back up in her car on Monday.
Spud, Bernice and Rick Lem-
mel sold lambs in Faith on Mon-
Monday, Dwayne and Zona
Vig had appointments in Rapid
City and stopped in to chat with
Chandelle and family a bit, then
on to Sturgis where they had
supper and a visit at the home of
Keith and Sue Keffeler.  The
Stoneville Road north of Union
Center was slow going getting
home, if you wanted to stay on it,
as we had good rain in the area
that day. Due to the rain, JT Vig
and Landan Brink made a busi-
ness trip to Sturgis.
Howard and I went to Rapid
City on Tuesday for appoint-
ments and shopping.
Diane Fees went to Pierre to
visit Kallie Fees and daughter on
Tuesday and came back on
Spud and Bernice Lemmel
kept doctor appointments in
Spearfish on Wednesday and
then they stayed overnight with
Joan Lemmel as they had an-
other appointment on Thursday
for their car to get some window
Sam and Cheryl Cowles spent
Tuesday and part of Wednesday
in Rapid City keeping medical
Wednesday evening at the
Faith Church of Christ building,
cake and balloons were part of a
send-off party for Dorothy,
Chelsi and Cindra Brown who
are leaving Faith and making
their home in Martin.
Zona Vig and Landan Brink
met Cheyenne Winkler and chil-
dren in Newell on Thursday with
some things for the Keffeler fam-
ily in Gillette since Cheyenne
was going there for an educa-
tional home school outing.  Zona
and Landan went on to Box
Elder so Landan  could attend
his home school co-op gathering.
Spud and Bernice Lemmel
were in Faith on Friday for sup-
plies, then stayed to watch the
volleyball games that evening.
Friday, Faye Fees drove to
Sturgis to have dinner with her
mother and care givers. Diane
Fees also was in the Hills towns
that day for supplies.
John and Carmen Heidler en-
tertained (or vice versa) the
granddaughters, Harlie and
Braylie on Friday.  Sunday,
John's sister Jean Lesmeister
and son Justin came. Jean to
visit, Justin to rope.  Grandma
Dorothy didn't come along this
time, I understand last time she
wasn't impressed with their rop-
ing skills. Bless her heart.
Rod, Tracy and Justin Ingalls
went to Rapid City on Friday
forenoon to take care of Nathan's
lawn and to do some house
work. Justin brought his things
home as his job in Rapid City
was through and he started
working at Lynn’s Dakotamart
in Faith on Monday so will be
staying in Faith or home on days
off. I left in the afternoon to go to
Sturgis to meet with the Simons
family at the home of Guy and
Gladys Edwards as there was a
surprise 80th birthday party for
brother Wayne that evening.
Wayne and Joyce's two daugh-
ters and one spouse came from
California and Nevada. Their
son and grandson from Moor-
croft, WY came over, as well as
Joyce's sister Dori McGee from
Sioux Falls and another of their
friends from Montana joined us
also to make a total of 32 guests
there.  Sunday was brother Wal-
ter’s birthday so we celebrated
double. Rod's family stopped in
as did Volmer and Ting Jensen
and several other nieces. I spent
the night with sister Freda Wil-
son, we shopped the next
forenoon, gabbed in the after-
noon then joined all siblings but
Wayne at the Sturgis High
School over 50 years reunion at
the Vets Club. I again stayed
overnight and joined some of my
classmates from the class of '58
for an afternoon of visiting at the
Sturgis Park.  Howard stayed
here at home and was host to 3
antelope hunters from the east-
ern part of the state. 
Calvin and Mable Stomprud
also were in Sturgis for the event
on Saturday evening. They
stayed over also, as I saw Mable
at church on Sunday. Dale and
Marie Ingalls didn't make it this
year as they too had hunters and
Hugh and Eleanor didn't come
either as they had a grand-
daughter that got married that
weekend in Colorado.
Landan, Alexavier, and Zamia
Brink spent some time with
Grandpa D and Grandma Z Vig
on Friday while their mother at-
tended a Mom's party at the
Kelsey Vig home. The Brink
family then spent the night at
the ranch and went home to Box
Elder on Saturday morning, all
but Landan who is still helping
with the hay hauling and cattle
Faye Fees' daughter Wanda
came from Casper, WY on Satur-
day forenoon to visit her mom
and left in the afternoon on Sun-
day to got to Sturgis to stop in for
a visit with Grandma Margie be-
fore going on back home.
Sunday, Hope Vig joined
Dwayne and Zona for dinner
after church services. Kelsey and
Brixie Vig came for supper as JT
had a fire department meeting.
Rod and Jason Ingalls went
down to the auction held at the
Union Center Community Cen-
ter on Sunday afternoon. Bernice
Lemmel said she went, also.  The
funds raised are to help the com-
munity center in getting some
air conditioning and new heating

Busy, busy, busy describes
everyone this time of year. We
are all hurrying around to get
things done before the big freeze
hits and winter weather stops
us. People are hustling around
picking last minute garden pro-
duce and freezing or canning it,
putting away the garden hose,
and just generally preparing for
the snows to come. When I see
pictures of alligators in people’s
homes, big snakes wound up in
the car motor and so forth I’m re-
minded how lucky we are to
freeze things. This year freezing
the mosquitoes will be a welcome
event. I know of two people with
West Nile virus, one at Faith,
another at Owanka and suppos-
edly, there have been some at
Timber Lake. The freeze hasn’t
happened here yet so keep usin’
the mosquito repellent and stay
Our deepest sympathy is ex-
tended to Duane and Joann
Wood and family in the loss of
their youngest daughter, Trinity.
When we lose someone who has
lived a long life it is so much eas-
ier to understand, but having
someone so young and full of
promise never seems fair. I, as
did many of you, watched her
grow from a child in braids to a
beautiful young woman. Know
we care and our prayers are with
you, and for you, as you deal
with this loss.  
Harold and I drove to Ab-
erdeen on Wednesday to be with
Adele and Denver Enright at the
Aberdeen Hospital. Denver had
been taken there by ambulance
Wednesday morning. We stayed
Wednesday night and came
home Thursday as he was doing
better. We had supper with
Adele, Mitch and Colette En-
right Wednesday evening.
Tonight, Sunday, Adele tells me
Denver will probably come home
Monday or Tuesday.
Thursday, Jim and Vonnie
kept appointments in Rapid
City. They met Holly and Paige
at Millstone's for supper and vis-
iting. They stayed in Rapid for
the night and got up early to go
to the Buffalo Roundup at
Custer State Park. After the
roundup O'Deas went to the cor-
rals and watched the buffalo go
through the preg check, weight
check, branding, tagging, and
sorting to get ready for the sale.
It was a real interesting day, but
they were tired and glad to get
Saturday Lacey, Quirt, and
Rio Wondercheck and I visited
my dad, Irvin. He seemed to be
doing much better and knew
Lacey and I. Also visiting family
and friends at the Philip Nurs-
ing Home that day were Mary
Kay Sandal, Rita and Monte
On our trip to and from Ab-
erdeen we saw acre upon acre of
soybeans, sunflowers, milo and
corn. Seeing all this makes you
realize what an important state
we actually are to the USA and
the world. The number of people
fed by South Dakota farmers has
to be astounding. I tell Harold if
he didn’t do his job so well more
people would have to work
harder to have food so they’d
have less time to fight over video
games, etc. I’m not sure of the
statistics now, but in other coun-
tries a farmer usually feeds him-
self and maybe 10 other people.
In the United States, I think a
farmer feeds himself and 120
other people. Despite the need
for US farmers, we drive along
and see acre after acre being
black topped or turned into a
building site. How often is the
land sold or rented because the
owner could get a few more dol-
lars than the current person was
able to pay. Keeping young peo-
ple on the place and your com-
munity strong doesn’t seem to
occur to these owners. Instead
we have absentee land owners

who don’t live or buy in the com-
munity. Then we wonder why our
towns and schools are dying.
Country people are often
ridiculed and portrayed as “igno-
rant hicks”, when in reality a
large percent of our country folk
have better educations and as
God knows, more common sense
than a large number of urban
dwellers. All along the roads we
drove we saw vacant places and
small towns with empty stores. It
certainly makes a person wonder
what it will be in 10, 20 and 50

We had another week of beau-
tiful fall weather. It’s come close
to freezing a couple times, but so
far my garden hasn’t been dam-
aged and we got just over a half
inch of rain so I haven’t had to
water. West of here, they aren’t
faring so well. Montana and
Wyoming have had snow al-
ready, including eight inches in
Buffalo, Wyoming so it won’t be
long before it starts here.
Gov. Daugaard came to Belle
Fourche Monday for the Per-

ing ceremony and Grand
Opening at the Belle Fourche In-

at the ceremony were Gov. Dau-

Gary Hendrickson, President of

poration Scott Peterson, CEO of
Permian Tank Jon Cohen, VP of
Strategy & Planning for Per-

Fourche is seeing a lot of indus-
trial development as a result of
the hard work by the city fathers
and our business-friendly cli-
mate in South Dakota.
Reub and Casey gathered
cows in our Horse Creek summer
pasture Tuesday and started
trailing them towards home. I
headed to Pierre that afternoon
for the Executive Board meeting
the next day and I went through
Lemmon on my way. The
Perkins County Republicans
hosted a “Meet the Candidate”
gathering at the Grand River
Museum for US Senate candi-
date Larry Rhoden.
The National Conference of
State Legislatures submitted the
Management and Performance
Audit of the Legislative Re-
search Council to the Executive
Board Wednesday. The Board
hired them to conduct this audit
at one of our first meetings after
session and they offered twelve
recommendations to correct
problems they found. We voted
to implement eight of the recom-
mendations, with a possibility of
implementing the others at a
later date.
The Board also accepted the
resignation of LRC Jim Fry, who
is retiring. Another long time
employee of LRC, Fred Schoen-
feld, will step up to fill the va-
cancy until we can find a
suitable replacement. Fred will
also be retiring in June and at
least two other LRC employees
are talking about retiring, so
several positions may need to be
filled soon.
The guys finished trailing the
cows home just before lunch on
Thursday, just in time for Reub
to get me to the doctor in Het-
tinger. For the second time in a
week and a half, I woke up so
dizzy I could barely stand up and
he decided it was time I went to
the clinic. The doctor and the
physical therapist determined
that I wasn’t having a stroke,
but was suffering from unilat-
eral vestibular hypofunction!
That sounds impressive, but all
it amounts to is a disconnect be-
tween my vision and my balance.
The therapist gave me some ex-
ercises to do three times a day
and I am definitely improv-
I was still dizzy so I missed
Harold Dutton’s funeral on Fri-

Healthcare Facility in Spearfish.

Friday at Immanuel Lutheran
Church in Zeona with burial in

tery. Harold’s family has our
I hated to miss hearing Tami
Gilbert on the Agvocacy Panel at
the SD Cattle Women meeting at
the Stockgrowers convention.  I
missed some other great speak-
ers and Rep. Liz May told me she
got a lot of useful information
from Margaret Byfieled, Execu-
tive Director of American Stew-
ards for Liberty when Byfieled
spoke to the Federal Lands and
Property Rights Committees.
Donald Krambeer was trans-
ferred from the Denver VA hos-
pital back to the VA in Helena,
MT after doctors found a staph
infection in a heart valve. He has
to be on IV drugs for the next 5
to 7 weeks so he has since been
admitted to the VA in Bozeman
for long term treatment. Thank-
fully, he’s feeling better.

much appreciated!
As I write this on Monday, the
president and Congress are
deadlocked and it looks like the
government will be shutting
down for the 17th time since
1995 at midnight. The House
has twice passed a Continuing
Resolution to fund the govern-
ment and both were rejected by
the Senate, the first because it
would have defunded the very
unpopular PPACA, otherwise
known as ObamaCare. The sec-
ond CR would have merely de-
layed implementation of
ObamaCare for a year.
Obama refuses to negotiate
with the House to try to resolve
the crisis, although he has spent
days negotiating with our sworn
enemy in Iran. Neither Obama
nor Harry Reid is willing to give
an inch towards lessening the
disastrous effects ObamaCare
will have on our health care sys-
tem, although Obama has given
multiple exemptions to big busi-
ness and major corporations that
contributed to his campaign,
even exempting Congress and
their staff. The only folks not
getting exemptions are the
American citizens. 
Here’s what the media says
about ObamaCare: "This is legis-
lation that was 2,500 pages long
is now 20,000 pages of legisla-
tion," the Cato Institute's
Michael Tanner said. That's
17,500 pages of new regulations
written by bureaucrats on top of
an already complex law passed
by Congress.
According to the Wall Street
Journal, ObamaCare’s regula-
tions and price controls ensure
that coverage will be more ex-
pensive. Coverage will cost about
20% to 30% more on average,
and often much more for the
younger and healthier who are
forced to cross-subsidize more
expensive patients. This is far
from Mr. Obama's promise of a
$2,500 per-family discount on
premiums. Forbes magazine
claims Obamacare will increase
health spending by $7,450 a year
for a typical family of four.
Let me get this straight.
Obama's health care plan was:
* written by a committee
whose head says he doesn't un-
derstand it,
* passed by a Congress that
didn't read it,
* signed by a president who
* was funded by a treasury
chief who did not pay his taxes,
* overseen by a surgeon gen-
eral who is obese, and
* financed by a country that is
not only broke, but is $17 trillion
dollars in debt.
What could possibly go wrong?

The Faith Longhorns football
team played Rapid City Chris-
tian Comets on September 27th,
and showed up to play. The boys
once again did not fail to disap-
point the expectations to con-
tinue their undefeated season.
The Longhorns started the
game with much more intensity
than they have had all season.
They kept that intensity
throughout the whole game. The
Longhorns had very tough de-
fense the whole game except
opening kickoff when the Comets
ran Rio Hulm’s kick back for
about 11 yards and then scored
on a trick play. The Comet’s of-
fensive line just couldn’t stop the
Longhorns defense, sacking their
quarterback a handful of times.
Junior Chaney Keffeler said,
“We played really good except for
the first play.” The Longhorns
pulled themselves together and
played the rest of the game as a
unit, which showed in the final
score, beating the Comets 49-6.
Since starting quarterback
Gereth Bushong is out from a
knee injury, the Longhorn’s
backup quarterback Dalton
Sheridan had to fill in to take his
place and once again he did not
disappoint. Sheridan had a great
passing game passing for 72
yards between his receivers Rio
Hulm and Tyler Hohenberger.
Sophomore Wyatt Schuelke said,
“I thought we played good but we
have a lot of work to do! The rain
had a little to do with the of-
Senior Clay Bernstein showed

sion and fight. He led the rush-
ing yards, interceptions, and
The Lady Longhorns traveled
to New Underwood on Thursday,
September 26th. They have been
struggling to put up a win, but
came out on New Underwood
and came home with a win. The
set scores of the match were: 25-
16, 20-25, 25-19, and 25-20.
In this game the Lady Long-
horns had great passing, which
helped with the rest of the set up
of sets and hitting. Leading the
team in serves, attacks, and
blocks was Teagan Engel. Karli
Kilby led the team in sets. Lead-
ing in receiving serves was
Michaelah Martin, and tieing for
digs was Michaelah Martin and
Maddy Vance. All of the girls did
a great job, but the one that
stood out was Maddy Vance, who
was named player of the game.
Maddy showed great hustling,
passing, good attitude, and
played outstanding.
Coach Ali Grueb said, “We fi-
nally played for all 25 points and
didn’t let down and stayed hus-
tling the entire match. Sopho-
more Teagan Engel said, “I think
that we improved a lot overall.
Our passes were better which
helped with our sets and hits,
but we still have minor things
we need to work on.” “We knew
what to work on due to the
Philip game, which made us
come out firing against New Un-
derwood. I thought at New Un-
derwood we had our best passing
game of the year and we were
able to turn that into a lot of re-
ally good sets, which ended in
hitting the ball really well,”
quoted senior Maddy Vance.
Longhorns tromp Comets By Jami Derflinger and Katie Bogue
tackles, which is no surprise to
anyone. Clay has worked hard
all season. Proving what his
stats show he is just as great of
a player as everyone thinks.
Coach Travis Grueb said,
“The Longhorns played with a
lot more intensity and desire
than they had all year and their
defense was good except for the
trick play the Comets ran to
start the game.” These boys are
definitely giving people around
the state something to talk about
and we couldn’t be any prouder
of them.
The boys are suiting up this
Friday and taking on the Irriga-
tors. It should be a great game to
let some of the younger boys get
some experience. Bring your
blankets and come cheer them

The Lady Longhorns hosted a
home game here on Tuesday,
September 24th. They ended up
losing in three sets against the
Philip Scotties. The set scores of
the match were: 22-25, 20-25,
and 14-25.
Leading the team in sets was
Karli Kilby, leading in serves
was Shanna Selby, leading in
both blocks and attacks was Tea-
gan Engel, and leading in digs
and receiving serves was
Michaelah Martin. The player
that stood out the most in this
game was Maddy Vance. Maddy
showed a positive attitude the
whole game and really stepped
up her game, by hustling.
The Lady Longhorns’ strength
of the team was hitting, but the
weakness of this game was pass-
ing. Coach Alison Grueb quoted,
“We played a lot better than we
have been this season. We still
have several things we need to
work on, especially keeping our
aggressive attitude for 25 points
each set.” Senior Shanna Selby
said, “We came out strong, but
just couldn't finish. We know
what we need to work on and we
can only get better.” “I think that
we had a really good week of
practice and turned that into one
of the best games this year.
Against Philip we had a tough
loss, but then knew what to do to
come out on New Underwood,”
senior Maddy Vance said.
The JV team played the same
night and lost in two sets, they
had a rough start and did better
in the end. The set scores of the
match were: 8-25, and 19-25.
The leading scorer of the game
was Penny Welter with 5 points,
one of them being an ace. The C
game played too and lost in two
sets as well. The set scores of the
match were: 20-25 and 22-25.
The leading scorer of the game
was Brooklyn Hanson with a
total of 9 points.

25, and 10-25. They lost to
Dupree in the third match hav-
ing set scores of: 25-23, 23-25,
and 19-25.
Leading the team in sets dur-
ing the tournament was Karli
Kilby. Leading in both receiving
serves and digs was Michaelah
Martin. In the tournament lead-
ing in serves was Shanna Selby.
Teagan Engel lead the team in
blocks in the tournament.
Coach Alison Grueb quoted,
“We started out strong against
Bison, but really struggled
against Harding County. The
Ranchers went on a serving
streak against us and we just
couldn’t pass up to our setters, so
that we could hit. The last match
was against Dupree and we
started out well, but sort of
crumbled after the first set and
just had some silly mistakes that
we couldn’t bounce back from.”
Junior Michaelah Martin said,
“We worked hard and played
better than we have been. We
just have to keep our heads up,
to know what to work on the rest
of the season.” Sophomore Katie
Bogue said, “I think that we
know what we need to work on.
Even though we lost to Harding
Country, we have this Thursday
to beat them.”

“cool” parents. They felt very
guilty and blamed themselves
for allowing him to go. Teenagers
can feel they are in complete con-
trol of their faculties and their
actions, but that isn’t the case.
She told these kids to think be-
fore they drink and get behind
the wheel.
Students from the participat-
ing schools presented a Home-
coming skit with coronation, and
a bonfire party after, where of
course, there was drinking. The
parents who allowed the party,
took the keys from the kids and
told them they were to stay there
all night. Some of those kids
thought otherwise and snuck out
in their vehicles. And then you
know what happened...an acci-
Sirens blew, fire trucks and
ambulance sirens were heard
and arrived at the scene only to
find six teenagers involved. The
injured were extricated from the
vehicles and hauled away in the
ambulances, some with very se-
rious injuries. Unfortunately,
the coronor also arrived on the
scene, to take away one of those
16 year old kids, Bailly Enright,
who won’t be with us anymore.
Bailly won’t be here to graduate,
go to college, see her younger sis-
ter graduate from high school,
have a career, get married, raise
a family, live her dream, or any
of those things one does during
their lifetime. Such a tragic loss
of life at such a young age.
A sentence hearing for the
driver of the vehicle, Abigail
Wicks, was held. 4th Circuit
Court Judge Mike Day presided
over the hearing, with Deputy
State Attorney Casey Sorenson
prosecuting. Abigail was repre-
sented by Atty. Jennifer Utter.
Abigail was charged with 1 count
of vehicular homicide and 5
counts of vehicular battery. Her
attorney asked for leniency, as
she is only 16 years old and has
her lifetime ahead of her. Miss
Wicks did not speak before the
court, though she could have.
The States Attorney stated that
this was preventable. Abigail
made the choice to drink and
drive. Beside the loss of one of
our youth, five others received
injuries that kept them hospital-
ized for months even, and left
them scarred for life. mentally
and physically.
Because of her age, Judge Day
didn’t give Abigail the full term.
He gave her 10 years for vehicu-
lar homicide and pay all her
court fees, with 2 years suspen-
sion, and 5 years for each of the
other counts. She will lose her
drivers license for 10 years fol-
lowing her release, and have no
contact with the friends or fami-
lies of the victims.
Students and the public were
invited to ask questions follow-
ing the session and some very
good ones were asked.
One parent asked a very in-
teresting question, “What kind of
sentence do the parents who pro-
vide the alcohol get?” If adults
provide alcohol to minors under
18 they can be sentenced up to
one year in county jail for each
minor they provided the alcohol
to and lose their drivers license.
They, too, can be charged with
homicide. There are always ex-
tenuating circumstances.
One student asked, “What do
you do if your parents are in jail?
Where do you go?” Judge Day
said one parent would probably
be released, but that’s not al-
ways the case. The verdict de-
pends on the case, in some
instances the sentence could be
Another question posed by a
student, “ Does the judge decide
which parent gets to stay home
with the kids”?” The court looks
at the impact on the family, if
there is no other family members
to live with, but the kids could
also end up in foster care.
Another question: Are the
other youth charged with minor
consumption? According to the
judge, in this case, probably not
those involved in the accident,
but those attending the party
would be. It’s up to the discretion
of the prosecutor. But usually,
they feel that those involved
have sustained enough injuries,
bodily and physically, and have
suffered enough. And it’s also
hard to prosecute the witnesses.
Kids, parents, adults, we hope
this was a learning experience
and that you will think before
you decide to be the “cool” par-
ent/adult and provide the alco-
hol, or partier and think you can
drink and drive.
Police Chief Hoss Frankfurth
should be commended for getting
this program here for the youth
of our community and the sur-
rounding areas. And to the many
volunteers who helped with the
program. It was a very enlight-
ening day!

After a dry week we received
some moisture which is keeping
the area as green as we've seen in
October. Leaves are changing to
fall colors every day. It looks to
be a beautiful spring in Central
Meade County.
The rural schools have started
their volleyball season and played
their first game in Union Center.
On Monday a strong wind hit
the area. Here's what happened
on the Scott Simons ranch south
of Union Center:
"While the boys were out put-
ting wheat on the truck. One of
the south doors of the a-frame
shed blew off and hit the tractor.
Scott was standing right beside it.
Jared was in the back-hoe and
saw the door whipping in the
wind. He motioned to his dad just
in time. Scott dove under the trac-
tor and the door hit the tractor
just as Scott landed on the ground
below it. The door completely de-
stroyed the tractor." We are
thankful that no one was hurt.
On Friday at 4:30 pm there
will be a Chili/Chicken Noodle
Soup Supper at the Central
Meade County Community Cen-
ter. This is an annual event,
serving up homemade soup and
pie, is always a treat and is based
on a free will donation. Proceeds
will go toward the heating and air
conditioning for the CMCCC.
Larry and I enjoyed spending
time with family in Madison this
past weekend. We attended the
DSU Alumni banquet where their
mother, Marlyn, received a spe-
cial pin for her service to Dakota
State University. The following
day we enjoyed the parade and a
leisurely afternoon and evening.
On Monday afternoon, Larry
and I headed to Bison for Faith's
JV football game. When we left it
was a warm sunny day, but by
the time we hit Bison it was a
brisk 20+ degree drop in temper-
ature. A shower came on in the
second half of the game, but the
Faith Longhorns came out with a
30-0 win.
Right now, the news is about
the government shut down. This
hasn't happened for some time.
With the season of selling calves
upon us, we hope this doesn't hurt
the good cattle prices we've been
experiencing. We are in hopes the
government can come to some
kind of an agreement before mid
Our sincere condolences go out
to the family of Trinity Wood, who
lost her battle to cancer last week.
Her parents are Duane and
JoAnn Wood from Maurine area.

Following through to keep our
youth safe on the farm
It’s no secret that agricultural
work is tough work – and as
America’s farm families know, it
can be dangerous. Last year, agri-
culture recorded the highest fatal
injury rate of any industry, with
the rate of on-the-job fatality in
agriculture nearly seven times
the rate for all U.S. workers.
Adding complexity to this chal-
lenge is the unique role that
youth play on the farm and
ranch. Many farms and ranches
are a family business. This impor-
tant tradition strengthens Amer-
ican agriculture and instills
important life skills for our young
Unfortunately, this means that
young people also share in the
hazards of farm work.  On aver-
age, more than 100 youth die
each year in farm-related acci-
dents.  Thousands more are in-
jured on the farm or ranch.   
Every injury or death on the
farm is tragic, and the involve-
ment of a young person makes
such accidents particularly diffi-
cult to bear.
That’s why the Federal govern-
ment has sought to help families,
farm groups and businesses en-
sure youth safety on the farm,
while still enabling young people
to have the important chance to
work in agriculture. Last year,
USDA promised to address youth
farm safety in innovative, com-
prehensive ways, working in part-
nership with folks from around
the country. 
On September 25, we an-
nounced new plans to strengthen
that commitment by developing a
national training curriculum to
reduce agricultural hazards to
young workers.
USDA’s National Institute of
Food and Agriculture awarded
$600,000 over two years to Penn-
sylvania State University, which
will work with partner universi-
ties and a broad range of agricul-
ture and education organizations
to develop this training curricu-
lum. The result will provide a uni-
fied approach to national youth
farm safety education, as well as
a formalized effort to educate
rural youth who are working on
the farm or ranch. Overall, NIFA
has provided nearly $2 million in
funding under the Obama Admin-
istration to complement the good
efforts of America’s farmer,
rancher and producer organiza-
tions to improve youth farm
In addition to the benefits that
these awards will bring for youth
on the farm, this is another im-
portant reminder of the wide
range of efforts NIFA carries out
in partnership with Land Grant
Universities. Folks across the
country are counting on Congress
to pass a comprehensive new
Food, Farm and Jobs Bill that
gives USDA and university part-
ners across the nation continued
tools to strengthen American
In the years to come we’re com-
mitted to a common-sense ap-
proach to youth safety on the
farm.  The Departments of Agri-
culture and Labor will continue to
coordinate closely with America’s
producers and agriculture organ-
izations on this and other farm
safety efforts.
This challenge is critically im-
portant for our rural young peo-
ple, and we must work together.
This week’s new effort will fur-
ther expand USDA’s broad part-
nerships to improve farm safety.
It will ensure that our young peo-
ple can get the experience they
need to keep American agricul-
ture strong and abundant in the
years to come, while staying safe
and sound in the process.

At a seemingly young 89 years of age, Frank has decided to retire and sell this
choice farm and ranch land that has remained in his family since before he was born,
and includes his father’s own original “Homestead Quarter”. is choice farmland
has never before been oered for sale to the public and will now be sold on the day
of auction regardless of price. A very large portion of this choice land is Class 3 soils
and has produced untold bushels of winter wheat through the years on a crop-rota-
tion basis of farming methods. Other than the hayland and pasture, the cropland
found on this farm is now in fallow and will be ready to the successful buyer(s) for
planting of spring crops in 2014. At this time, until future plans are made, Frank will
retain a Life Estate enabling him to remain in the home at the headquarters. Please

and one shallow water well is located on this tract.
Tract 4: ±80 Ac. – N1/2NE1/4, Sec. 9. A very picturesque tract fronted on two

This prime farmland was originally purchased by Dave Heaton in the early
1940s and has remained in the family (Donna Zidko is Dave`s daughter) all
of these past years and has never before been offered for sale in those 70+
years. Tract 1 (SE1/4, Sec. 28), the Heaton Quarter just east of Belvidere
consists of ±133.29 acres of which approx. 125.83 acres are tillable. Of these
acres, all are classified as Class 3 soils with 110 of these acres having a pro-
ductivity index of 58 and the remaining a productivity index of 71. This is a
very desirable and productive tract. Tract 2 (SW1/4, Sec. 29 & Outlot F & G,
Sec. 32) consists of ±146.74 total acres and is located on the western edge
of town. Most of these acres are tillable land with the exception of a dam and
drainage area in the northeast corner and consists mostly of Class 4 soils
with a productivity index avg. about 50. These two tracts will be offered indi-
vidually, and as one unit, selling in the manner realizing the greater return.
