With such a long, accom-
plished life, it is difficult to fully
describe the impact George Mc-
Govern had on our world. In each
chapter of his life, his contribu-
tions to our society were gigantic.
His accomplishments have al-
ready been the subject of many
books, and his legacy will live on
forever.
I was just nine years old when
George was elected to Congress.
As a young man, I followed his ca-
reer closely as he became increas-
ingly influential. To see a man
from Mitchell become a leading
voice on the biggest issues of the
day was inspiring to me and
many other young South
Dakotans. This inspiration con-
tinued throughout all of George’s
life. Even in these last few years,
he spent time with South Dakota
students, which undoubtedly in-
spired them to think big about
their futures and how they can
have an impact on our world.
Although George’s 1972 Presi-
dential Race against Richard
Nixon gets a lot of attention, the
work he did before and after his
time in public office was incredi-
ble. George summed it up best
last month when he wrote an ar-
ticle for the Washington Post on
losing the 1972 Race. George
wrote that while the loss was a
significant personal setback, “I
have acknowledged it, absorbed it
and integrated it into the rest of
the long life I have been privi-
leged to lead. Before that race, I
had survived 35 missions as a B-
24 bomber pilot in World War II;
married Eleanor Stegeberg, the
love of my life; had five children;
completed a PhD in history; and
had a successful career in politics
and government service.”
Instead of lamenting about los-
ing the election, George went
back to work. George made our
world a better place through his
work on many issues, including
agriculture and foreign policy.
But his greatest public policy
achievement has to be his work
on hunger issues. What drove

George to work tirelessly to com-
bat hunger worldwide was his
recognition that we are fortunate
to live in a country with food
abundance. He knew that so
many individuals across the
world were not as lucky. George
often noted that hunger is a polit-
ical condition that is 100 percent
curable. In our country and across
the world, there are countless in-
dividuals who never knew George
but are no longer suffering from
hunger because of his work.
It is sad to lose George, but we
will be able to see his impact on
the world for decades to come.
South Dakotans and folks across
the U.S. and world are thankful
for his long life of service. Person-
ally, I am thankful for George’s
friendship and advice. And I
think I speak for many South
Dakotans who grew up following
his career when I say that I am
thankful to George for showing us
that a kid from South Dakota can
have a major impact on the
world. 
October is Domestic Violence
Awareness Month across the na-
tion and a time to support the
campaign against domestic vio-
lence and abuse.
“Many South Dakotans are af-
fected by domestic violence, re-
gardless of age, education or
race,” said Kim Malsam-Rysdon,
secretary of the Department of
Social Services. “It is important
for individuals to understand the
signs of abuse, so victims can get
the help they need.”
The South Dakota Domestic
Abuse Program funds 27 shelters
across the state for victims of
abuse. Shelter programs offer
many services, including 24-hour
crisis lines, transportation, imme-
diate and safe shelter, food, cloth-
ing, counseling and information,
and referrals to other services vic-
tims may need.
Congress passed the first Do-
mestic Violence Awareness
Month commemorative legisla-
tion in 1989. National, statewide,
and community-based domestic
violence prevention and victim
service organizations mark this
month with recognition cere-
monies, memorial activities, pub-
lic education campaigns and com-
munity outreach events.

The Faith City Council heard
from department heads at their
October 16th meeting.
Cindy reported for the ambu-
lance/drivers license department.
The ambulance made 16 runs in
September, and had 12 drivers li-
censes issued. She asked to at-
tend the EMS Conference, along
with 3 other ambulance staff, in
Watertown October 25-28. They
would requre 2 rooms and use of
the city vehicle. Council approved
the request. One ambulance is
still down due to electical prob-
lems, but she be repaired soon.
Debbie reported that the
budget was done. She had a tele-
conference with Pierre regarding
a few changes to be looked at.
Donn said that some of their
safety equipment has arrived.
The crew will be gathering the
auction items and hauling them
to the community center on
Thursday. The crew has installed
some of the phone cable and will
be working on Justin Inghram’s
power pole soon. The crew has
also been busy spreading gravel
at the lake and cemetery. The
sewers were all jetted last week
and all went well; there were
quite a few tree roots. They ex-
panded the dump hole 80’ for
now. Glen also noted they need to
clean up some of the city’s prop-
erty.
Hoss stated that the State
game trapper doesn’t trap
skunks. Individuals can trap the
skunks if they want. Faith isn’t
the only town with this probably,
everybody has them. They are
moving into town looking for
water and food. Hoss reported
that he and Brian have gotten rid
of 14 of them. Dispatch has re-
ceived 4 fire calls but there have
been more than that.
The Faith City Council held
further discussion with Greg
Fisher on his culvert proposal.
Members looked over his site ear-
ler so they could make a better
decision on his proposal to place
about 45’ of culvert in the alley
behind his house in town.
Spencer was concerned about the
water hitting the bank head on
and washing a hole. Greg said he
was going to place railroad ties to
help that. The culvert won’t affect
the drainage. Greg said the alley
could be straightened as it should
be. He said that the drain grates
get more debirs since the city has
put in curb and gutter. He felt
this alley has been neglected and
would just like to fix it so it drains
properly. Riley said she had re-
ceived a call concerning back-up
into the Pratt yard, and hers.
Mayor Haines said they have no
ordinance regarding alleyways
but Dave Lutz should take a look
at it. Greg wondered if the city
would do the labor if there is no
problem with the proposal. Nolan
didn’t think the city should do the
work. Riley didn’t have a problem
with the city crew putting it in.
She felt he was trying to fix the
drainage issue and the alley, and
they need to look into it more and
work with him. They’ve helped
others and she felt it was the
right thing to do. Spencer said
they tear down houses for people
and felt they should help him.
Nolan felt the crew had too many
other things to do, unless it didn’t
need to be done soon. Greg would
like to do it this fall. Haines said
the culvert also requires tar
paper, seals, etc. Greg asked if the
crew could, at least, haul the cul-
vert down there for him. Haines
said the city would not be respon-
sible if any were dropped. After
further discussion, Greg said he
would take care of it. He will visit
with Dave Lutz further.
Resolution #10-16-12-01 for
the transfer of funds was ap-
proved.
Debbie asked if council would
approve changing the funds from
lottery that go into the Commu-
nity Development savings ac-
count to Fixed Assets instead and
see how it does, to build up funds
for an ambulance and police car.
And also change the ambulance
Capital Outlay which is now
$250 to $750 and $20 per ambu-
lance run. They could start it and
back it off if it doesn’t work. This
would require a resolution so will
be on the next agenda.
Debbie had a quote of $4,000
for the gym floor, up a little from
last year. It will be done in be-
tween the volleyball and basket-
ball season.
Mayor Haines said that at the
Municipal League meeting the
use of city equipment by individ-
uals was one topic of discussion.
For insurances reasons, this
shouldn’t be done. Equipment
must be operated by a city em-
ployee. Haines also had a Prop-
erty Managment Code Book that
covers tearing down houses, etc.
He thought they needed to imple-
ment their own book. He said it is
very simple, lots of town are doing
it. They can also implement a cell
phone use policy. Hoss said there
is no state law against it yet. Deb-
bie will check with the State and
see if they have a sample policy.
Council approved the list of
surplus items that Debbie pre-
sented. Some of the items will be
sold at the auction and some de-
stroyed.
Bids for repairing the pump
house were opened at 7:30. Only
one bid was received: Larry Ross
Construction for $1854 to replace
a door, steel cable, etc. Council
acdepted his bid.
Council approved one building
permit: Mickey and Heather
Kirkley for a 14’x20’ deck on the
front side of their house. Donn
said it would be 12’ from the curb
so they are within their property
line. Council approved the per-
mit. Debbie wondered if the cul-
vert project required a building
permit.
Council retired into executive
session at the end of their meet-
ing to discuss possible litigation.
Council denies Fisher’s request for culvert assistance

Brycen Meyer were up, also.
Friday, Carmen Heidler went
over to the Opal Church for
sewing day.  Emily Cowles taught
a quilting class. The group wasn't
as large as they expected but
everyone is so busy. Carmen said
she left early as Chip Heidler and
family were out to their place for
the afternoon to visit with Corky.
O.J. and Leah came down as well,
and Corky took a few minutes to
set up Carmen's new computer
and put in a new front door on the
house. Saturday, Corky went to
Faith to see Grandma Dorothy
and do a project for her.  John and
Carmen went in too and helped
some. Several family members
stopped during the day to visit,
too,  Jeanie Lesmeister, Shania,
Chip and Harlie Jo Heidler.
Corky headed back to ND and
Carmen said after the week here
he was probably really looking
forward to getting back to his
work.
Jesse Fees and daughters were
up to Walter and Diane's this
weekend.  Diane and the girls
went to the craft show at Union
Center that forenoon, then
worked on the massive leaf drop
after the two horribly windy days
we had on Wednesday and Thurs-
day. Jason and Jesse Fees worked
on the farming project.
Spud and Bernice Lemmel
went to a wedding at the Chapel
in the Hills in Rapid City on Sat-
urday.  She was a girl Bernice
had babysat during hunting while
her Dad hunted at the Lemmels.
Tracy and I stopped by the
craft fair on Saturday forenoon in
Union Center. We were on our
way to Sturgis for a bridal shower
for Maria Sobotka who will be-
come grandson John Bestgen's
bride in November.
Faye Fees visited friend Anissa
L. for a haircut on Saturday.  I
had done the same on Thursday.
Larry Jensen is home for a few
days from his job in ND. He and
Tammy were in the Hills on Fri-
day for a medical appointment for
Larry.  Tammy's parents from
Dell Rapids, SD were here this
weekend to visit.
Sunday evening, Bill Hauger
and Corey Maaland and son came
out to the Heidler ranch and
brought pizza for supper.

What a furocious wind we had
last week! The wind hit Tuesday
night and continued all day
Wednesday and Thursday, fi-
nally quitting Thursday evening.
It was blowing around 45, with
gusts to around 70 mph! About
the only damage that I could see
around town was the north edge
of the roof on the Faith Area Me-
morial Chapel. We even got a lit-
tle rain Tuesday night! Nothing
measurable, but it wet the
ground. We had some rain this
past Sunday night and Monday,
and sounds like more most of this
week, some could be white stuff.
Friday we’re only supposed to be
in the 30s! We’ll take moisture in
any form we can get.
Condolences to the Johnny
Hostetter family. Johnny and
Betty lived near Faith for as long
as I can remember and they
raised and educated their chil-
dren here. Condolences also to
the family of Irene Starr of
Dupree, Many of you know her
sons and daughters. Vernon
owns the Cenex here.
We lost two noteable South
Dakotans over the weekend, for-
mer US Senator George McGov-
ern and American Indian
Movement activist Russell
Means. George McGovernor
started out as a professor at
Dakota Wesleyan University,
was a WWII combat pilot, and
served several terms as South
Dakota’s U.S. Senator. In 1972
he ran for U.S. President but lost
in a landslide to Richard Nixon.
Means will be remembered as the
leader of the uprising at
Wounded Knee in the early
1970s. He also starred in several
Hollywood movies, including
“The Last of the Mohicans.”
Dennis and Janet Fernau
were in Faith over the weekend.
They planted a tree at the school
in memory of Bev Baxter. Fer-
naus and Bev were an integral
part of the Faith school for many
years. What a nice memorial!
Our daughter Melissa stopped
by the house last Friday on her
way to the State Cheer and
Dance Competiton in Watertown
to watch her neice Brooke’s team
perform. She picked up a late
wedding gift that we had. The
Sturgis cheerleaders won their di-
vision of stunting, non-tumbling.
I watched it on the internet Sat-
urday, as our DirecTV doesn’t
give us all the PBS Channels.
They did an awesome job!
Several cowboys from our area
placed well in the SDRA Finals
over the weekend in Rapid City.
Troy Wilcox, Red Owl won the
calf roping, with Trey Young of
Dupree getting 2nd. Kristi Birke-
land, Dupree, 2nd in goat tying,
and Trisha Price, Faith, was 3rd.
Hanna Brown placed 2nd in the
mixed team roping, but I couldn’t
find who she roped with, possilby
her dad Jody. Marty Hebb,
Cherry Creek, placed 2nd in sad-
dle bronc, and Delbert Cobb, Red
Owl, placed 3rd in sr. men’s
breakaway. Congratulaitons to
all!
Congratulations to FHS senior
Tearnee Nelson for placing 3rd in
goat tying in the High School Ex-
travaganza during the SDRA Fi-
nals over the weekend!
The Faith Longhorns suffered
their one and only loss of the reg-
ular football season last Thursday
night against unbeaten Harding
County, but it was a close one, 28-
26. Faith (7-1) hosts Kadoka Area
(5-3) this Tuesday night in the
first round of playoffs in 9A for
Region 4. New Underwood (6-2)
hosts Wall (5-3) in the other
game. In the 9B Region 4 games,
Harding County (8-0) hosts Jones
County (3-5) and Bison (4-4) plays
Colome (7-1). The second round of
playoff games will be next Mon-
day, 29th. Teams are re-seeded
after the 1st Round. We hope they
are the winning side when it’s
over Tuesday night!
The Lady Longhorns varsity
volleyball girls continue their
winning streak. They defeated
Timber Lake last Tuesday night.
They played Newell this past
Monday night and will be playing
Takini this Thursday, the final
game of the regular season. The
District Tournament will be held
in Bison next Tuesday, and con-
tinues on Thursday and Friday.
Good luck Lady Horns!

Wednesday and Thursday of
last week brought with it ex-
tremely strong, steady winds.
Damage was done to trees and
other vulnerable things like the
wind turbine blade at Cammack
Ranch Supply. The most danger-
ous thing to be doing that day was
to drive a semi-truck and trailer
with an empty pot. Buddy Simons
and son made a miraculous trip to
Pierre on Wednesday and filled
the belly of the trucks with water
before heading home. The Rho-
dens, Casey Brink, and Earl
Smiths were scheduled to ship
calves to Minnesota on Thursday,
but postponed until Saturday.
Saturday was a beautiful day for
riding, loading, and hauling cat-
tle, as well as pretty much any
outdoor activity. Buddy made a
much more relaxing haul that day
than he would have on Thursday.
Delbert Cobb and others par-
ticipated in the SDRA event in
Rapid City on Saturday. I would
love to report some results if any-
one would like to submit them.
Also on Saturday evening was
Donkey Basketball in Faith. It
served as a fund raiser for the
Faith senior class. Paige Brink
and Reggie Rhoden participated
in the game by riding a donkey. It
provided some good entertain-
ment.
The Faith Longhorns suffered
their first loss of the football sea-
son on Friday night against Hard-
ing County. However, the score
was a close 28-26. Playoffs began
this week on Tuesday in Faith.
Gary and Amy Cammack have
completed construction on their
new addition to their home.
Friends and neighbors are anx-
ious to see the finished product so
they will be hosting an Open
House on November 4, from 2:00
- 4:00 pm. This is the first Sunday
of the month so a potluck dinner
will follow church services in
Union Center and all are wel-
come.
Saturday night or early Sun-
day morning, November 4 is
when we will 'fall' back and put
clocks back one hour. This gives
us an extra hour that day.
A blood drive was held this
week on Tuesday in Union Cen-
ter. For those wishing to give
blood but were unable to make it
this week, please contact Donna
Cammack or Carolyn Moreland.
The deadline for registering to
vote is this week. For questions
concerning this, one should call
the Meade County Auditor.
We are wishing Ronnie Op-
stedahl the best as he recovers
from a slight stroke. Also, some
are developing throat and lung
problems that are likely due to
the dry, dusty air. Those working
among cattle and other occupa-
tions that stir up the dust have
noticed symptoms of sore throats
and coughs. Please continue to
pray for rain.
On Saturday, October 27 from
4:00 - 7:30 pm there will be a
Soup & Pie Supper at the CMC
Community Center. Hosted by
the Prairie Bible Church of God,
there will be face painting, fish
pond, bouncy castle, cake walk
and much more. Proceeds from
the event will go toward a base-
ment foundation for the church's
new parsonage.
October is "Pastor Apprecia-
tion Month". It is a good time to
thank your pastor for his leader-
ship, guidance, sacrifice, and will-
ingness to take a stand for the
Almighty. What would we do
without our pastors?
Is it just me or are we hearing
more and more about some fool
getting a gun and shooting inno-
cent people? I watch my grandson
play guns around the house and
know that he is already learning
gun safety. He and I sneak down
the stairs and around corners to
shoot the bad guys. We never play
“get even” or “shoot the innocent
people.” We hunt coyotes, skunks,
wolves and bears in my living
room. He already knows not to
point a gun at his head and that
guns are “bad, bad danger.” He
pretends to have a gun safe just
like daddy and he locks his guns
in it. He does not mess with
daddy’s guns.  Is it the lack of gun
knowledge, the violence on TV
and all these video games that
shoot, kill and blow up everything
in sight causing this epidemic of
violence? Do these people need a
physical outlet for their anger
such as chopping wood, pitching
hay or hauling bales? Is too much
sitting on their backside resulting
in this rage? Is it the lack of a
Christian influence in today’s
world or is it just the fact that city
folks often don’t know and don’t
care about others? Gun control is
not the answer, people caring
about others is an answer. Teach-
ing proper gun use and safety
should be taught at a young age
by example not by a video game!  
Sympathy is extended to the
family of Johnny Hostetter and
Irene Starr. John and Betty lived
northwest of Faith on the old
Gottschalk place for many years.
They and their children have en-
riched the community with their
contributions over the years.
Condolences also go out to the
family of Irene Starr. My family
knew Leon and Irene for many
years. They were a family who
was involved in all aspects of
their Dupree community. She
taught church school, quilted and
helped the 4-H, not to mention
being a charter member of the
Senior Citizens in Dupree. Ver-
non, A.J. and Lester she was a
mom to be proud of. God bless all
of you.
Last Sunday, Grandpa Allen
Waterland, Robert, Lacey and
Quirt Wondercheck, Kim and
George Langendorfer, Harold and

Sturgis, SD - The Meade
County Board of Commissioners
expand a cooperative initiative
with the U.S. Department of In-
terior, Bureau of Land Manage-
ment (BLM) – in an effort to hire
veterans.
The “Veteran in the Woods”
initiative is funded by the BLM
and will fall under Meade
County’s current Firewise pro-
gram. The primary goal of this
Community Wildfire Protection
effort is to reduce the risk from
wildfire to life, property, and crit-
ical infrastructure.
Veterans will be hired and
trained to facilitate this effort by
working with private landowners
on the education and implemen-
tation of fire/fuel mitigation ef-
forts. The primary scope of work
will find the veterans being
trained on cutting, thinning, and
removing trees on private land
while at the same time educating
the public on the need for same.
Meade County is vested in
working with our current and re-
turning veterans who are enter-
ing back into the private sector
after serving our country.
Veterans who want to be con-
sidered are asked to fill out a
Meade County employment appli-
cation form and submit same to
the Meade County Human Re-
source Office, 1300 Sherman
Street, STE 212, Sturgis, SD
57785. Applications are available

The Pasture, Rangeland & Forage - Rainfall Index (PRF-RI) is based on NOAA data and uses an approximate
12x12 mile grid. Producers must select at least two, two-month time periods in which precipitation is important
for the growth and production of forage/pasture. These time periods are called index intervals. Insurance pay-
ments to the producer suffering a loss are calculated based on the deviation from normal precipitation with
the grid and index intervals selected. This insurance coverage is for a single peril - lack of precipitation.

Please Vote NO on Initiated
Measure #15
By Senator Ryan Maher
Initiated Measure #15 is a per-
manent $180 million tax increase
on almost everything people buy
in South Dakota every year, for-
ever. This is a sales and use tax
increase from 4% to 5%, which is
actually a 25% tax increase-- the
largest tax increase in South
Dakota History.
ALL $180 million of the higher
taxes are mandated to go ONLY
to schools ($90 million) and ONLY
to Medicaid providers ($90 mil-
lion), such as doctors, clinics and
hospitals. NONE of the money is
allowed to be spent on roads,
bridges, highways, small business
loans, local sewer and water proj-
ects, parks, and other things to
improve South Dakota’s quality of
life.
Initiated measure #15 was
written by Sioux Falls lawyers,
behind closed doors, and with no
public input into the proposed
law. The way the proposed law is
written, this tax increase is out-
side the current education fund-
ing formula. What does this mean
for Western South Dakota? It
means our schools will receive
very little of this money, most of
this tax increase will end up in
Sioux Falls. Your tax dollars are
not going to be spent locally, they
will all end up in the major met-
ropolitan areas of this state. Once
again rural South Dakota schools
will loose out!
Medicaid is made up of a very
complex funding formula, this for-
mula is made up of state dollars
and federal dollars, any changes
to this program involves approval
from Washington DC.  Should Ini-
tiated Measure #15 pass, there is
a great chance this money will not
be able to be spent on Medicaid
providers.  This money would be
sitting in State Trust Funds wait-
ing to be distributed until Wash-
ington DC gives approval.  Most
likely, only the interest will be
able to be used from these trust
funds. This is not prudent finan-
cial management of your tax dol-
lars. 
Yes, schools and Medicaid
providers were cut by $77 million
in 2011. However, they have al-
ready had $18 million restored
during the 2012 legislative ses-
sion. That leaves $59 million not
yet restored.  But, under Initiated
Measure # 15, schools and Medi-
caid providers would receive $180
million to replace the remaining
$59 million.
The state finished the budget
year June 30th, 2012 with $48
million in unexpected revenue.
Schools and Medicaid providers
will have the option during the
2013 legislative session to seek
some or all of that money in Jan-
uary. They will have the ability to
ask for their cuts to be restored,
instead of raising your taxes.
Currently we have a drought in
South Dakota and many uncer-
tainties about federal funding.
Those problems are good reasons
why we should NOT increase
taxes by $180 million on ourselves
and give all of the $180 million to
just two groups. The problems we
face and priorities for spending
can change from year to year.
This is why we elect a legislature
and a Governor. It is their job to
make those tough decisions on
spending and cutting, and to an
understanding of these complex
funding formulas. 
Please vote NO on Initiative
Measure # 15.
Letter to the Editor
The U.S. Department of Agri-
culture's (USDA) efforts to help
producers rebound from drought
have touched more than one mil-
lion acres of farmland across the
country as nearly 2,000 producers
took advantage of conservation
funding targeted to drought-
stricken areas by USDA's Natu-
ral Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS). NRCS made
more than $27 million available
to farmers and ranchers to make
conservation improvements,
spurring recovery and ensuring
lands are more drought resistant
in the future.
"This tremendous response re-
flects the severity of this year's
drought conditions, "Agriculture
Secretary Vilsack said."The level
of producer participation is also a
testament to the hard work of
USDA and other federal agencies
to help farmers and ranchers
weather one of the worst
droughts in decades."
NRCS provided financial and
technical assistance to help crop
and livestock producers in 22
states apply conservation prac-
tices, including conservation
tillage, cover crops, nutrient man-
agement, prescribed grazing, live-
stock watering facilities and
water conservation practices.
These actions build healthier soil
that lead to better harvests and
cleaner water and air.
"The conservation investments
made by these producers today
will continue to improve the re-
silience of their lands in the face
of drought as well as other natu-
ral events that are out of their
control," Vilsack said. "The farm-
ers and ranchers that have volun-
tarily implemented conservation
improvements have taken an im-
portant step toward building
drought resistance into their op-
erations."
Exceptional drought continues
to dominate sections of Arkansas,
Colorado, Georgia, Iowa, Kansas,
Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska,
New Mexico, Oklahoma, South
Dakota, Tennessee, Texas and
Wyoming, causing widespread
losses of crops and pastures and
water shortages in reservoirs,
streams and wells.
Alabama, Illinois, Indiana,
Michigan, Mississippi, Nevada,
South Carolina and Utah are
under extreme drought, with ac-
companying major losses of crops
and pasture, widespread water
shortages and restrictions on
water use.
See the total NRCS drought
assistance received by each state.
Producers and landowners are
encouraged to visit the NRCS
website or stop by their local
NRCS office to find out if they are
eligible for drought assistance.

EQIP and other NRCS programs.

Exercise in Democracy
Throughout our history, young
men and women have answered
the call of their country to defend
liberty and the freedoms we
enjoy. They have served within
our borders and around the world
in the name of democracy and jus-
tice. Soon, we will all have the op-
portunity to exercise one of the
greatest civic responsibilities re-
sulting from those efforts – the
right of every man and woman to
vote.
As someone who has been
through the process of placing my
name on a ballot and asking
South Dakotans for their vote, I
know firsthand how seriously res-
idents of this state take their
vote, and we should. After
months of commercials, mailers,
yard signs, and advertisements,
Election Day is almost upon us.
Whether you are someone who re-
quests your ballot and votes early
or someone who enjoys the rou-
tine of going to your precinct
polling place, maybe even with
your spouse or children, it is im-
portant to make your voice heard.
In South Dakota, every voter
has an opportunity to interact
with the people they are deciding
between and we have an opportu-
nity to put forward issues impor-
tant to us on the ballot.
Sen. John Thune’s
Weekly Column
Democracy is alive and strong in
South Dakota, but only when we
all take the opportunity to make
our voices heard.
I have had the chance to talk to
Iraqis who cast their first ballot
and the pride and excitement
they have for this right that we
may tend to take for granted.
Sometimes, it is easy to forget
how fortunate we are in this
country, even with the political
and issue signs and advertise-
ments around every corner, liter-
ally.
Being entrusted with your vote
and representing you in the U.S.
Senate is a privilege I enjoy,
thanks to those who keep us safe.
Thank you to our men and women
in uniform and our veterans for
preserving our democracy so we
can cast our votes on November
6th. 
Strengthening Homegrown En-
ergy
As the drought continues
today, USDA and other Federal
agencies are doing all we can to
help farmers, ranchers and com-
munities who have been im-
pacted.
Unfortunately, our tools are
limited. Due to inaction by Con-
gress, many parts of the 2008
Farm Bill expired October 1, and
other aspects of the law will ex-
pire in the coming months.
This brings tremendous uncer-
tainty for rural families – partic-
ularly livestock producers who
have lost access to disaster pro-
grams, and dairy producers who
no longer have access to dairy
support programs.
The lack of a Food, Farm and
Jobs Bill also limits USDA from
continuing our record invest-
ments in homegrown American
energy. Since 2009 USDA has
worked hard to ensure that rural
America plays a key role in our
nation’s energy strategy.
For example, we’ve invested in
more than 330 bioenergy projects,
strengthening biofuels production
across America. Ethanol alone
supports nearly 400,000 Ameri-
can jobs, while reducing the price
of gas by more than one dollar per
gallon for American families.
We’ve helped grow America’s
capacity for creating advanced
biofuels from non-food, non-feed
sources. Since 2009 USDA has in-
vested in historic efforts to create
nine new, advanced biofuels re-
fineries. Meanwhile, we have
added new income sources for
farmers – providing incentives to
grow advanced feedstocks on
nearly 60,000 acres.
Finally, USDA has undertaken
groundbreaking research that’s
necessary to expand our home-
grown energy capacity.
Last year we established five
research centers across America
to enhance research and coordi-
nation in the development of new
biofuels technologies. Just last
week, USDA announced a sixth
such effort, providing support for
researchers across the northeast
United States to undertake addi-
tional biofuels research.
USDA has invested more than
$320 million to accelerate re-
search into the new technologies
associated with advanced biofu-
els. And in partnership with the
U.S. Navy and the Department of
Energy, we are making an his-
toric investment of more than
$510 million to develop advanced
biofuels for military ships and air-
craft. In fact, just recently, ships
and aircraft of the Navy’s “Great
Green Fleet” conducted opera-
tions off the coast of Hawaii using
Ag Secretary Vilsack’s Column
advanced marine and aviation
biofuels.
We’re proud of where we stand
today. In 2011 America imported
about 45 percent of our oil from
foreign countries – down from
more than 60 percent in 2005.
Our nation’s growing biofuels in-
dustry played a key role in that
progress.
But there’s much left to be
done. I know that given the tools
to succeed, USDA can continue to
bring down gas prices for fami-
lies. We can further strengthen
America’s energy security. And
we can support more good jobs in
our small towns and rural com-
munities.

News Brief
The Sioux Falls Chapter of Delta Kappa
Gamma, an education organization for women,
is working on a project to send blankets to Jor-
dan. Currently almost a thousand refugees a day
are coming into Jordan and most are living near
the border in tents. As winter approaches the
DKG group thought it would be good to knit
blankets, especially for babies. So if you knit or
crochet, they would like to ask you to use up your
yarn and make 10” X 10” squares, any color, any
stitch. You can just make one, or a couple or even
a whole blanket if you have time. These will be
given to a local church to stitch together to dis-
tribute in Jordan this winter. Anything you have
to send, please bring to Elsie Baye by November
8th or call 967-2707 after 6 pm.

For the eighth year, the South
Dakota Department of Labor and
Regulation’s Division of Securi-
ties is giving high school seniors
an opportunity to turn their
knowledge of finances into actual
cash.
“How to Create Financial Inde-
pendence by Understanding Five
Principles of Investing” is the title
of the investor education and pro-
tection initiative. It invites South
Dakota high school seniors to sub-
mit an essay that could earn them
cash prizes. 
Under contest rules, essays
must include one page on each of
the five principles below:         
•Compare and contrast the ad-
vantages and disadvantages of in-
vesting in a mutual fund versus
investing in a variable annuity. 
•Use a financial calculator to
illustrate how you can obtain $1
million by the age of 65.
•Explain what it means to
have a diversified portfolio.
•Explain two types of invest-
ment fraud. 
•Discuss the differences be-
tween a securities broker-dealer
and a securities investment ad-
viser.
“The Securities Division will
grade the papers to determine
winners for first place through
fifth place,” said State Labor and
Regulation Secretary Pam
Roberts. “The first place winner
receives $6,000. I encourage all
high school seniors to partici-
pate.”
Other cash prizes include
$5,000 for second place, $3,500 for
third place, $2,500 for fourth
place and $1,500 for fifth place.
The remaining qualified submis-
sions will be placed into grade
categories A-B-C-D with a ran-
dom drawing to award additional
cash prizes of $1,000 (A category),
$750 (B category), $500 (C cate-
gory) and $250 (D category). 
“Essay applicants can consult
any person or information sources
for assistance, as long as the final
essays are written in their own
words without outside help,” said
State Securities Director Mike
Youngberg.
In addition to submitting the
essay, each student must also be
sponsored by a teacher from their
high school. Cash prizes will be
awarded to teachers sponsoring
winning essays, to the teacher
who sponsors the most qualifying
students from their school and to
a random drawing winner. 
The deadline to submit entries
to the essay contest is Jan. 15,
2013, with winners to be an-
nounced by April 30, 2013. Hard
copy entries only; electronic en-
tries will not be accepted. Contest
rules and more information are
available at all South Dakota
high schools or at
http://dlr.sd.gov/securities/essay_
contest.aspx.
The South Dakota Division of
Securities Investor Education
Essay Contest is funded by a
grant from the Investor Protec-
tion Trust (IPT). The IPT is a
nonprofit organization devoted to
investor education. Since 1993,
the IPT has worked with states to
provide the independent, objec-
tive investor education needed by
all Americans to make informed
investment decisions. For more

USDA Announces Supplemen-
tal Revenue Assistance Pay-
ments Sign-Up Period for
2011 Crop Losses Begins Octo-
ber 22, 2012 and ends June 7,
2013
The sign-up period for the 2011
crop year Supplemental Revenue
Assistance Payments (SURE)
program will open Oct. 22, 2012.
The SURE program is part of the
Food, Conservation, and Energy
Act of 2008 (Farm Bill). Under
the 2008 Farm Bill, SURE au-
thorizes assistance to farmers
and ranchers who suffered crop
losses caused by natural disasters
occurring through Sept. 30, 2011.
“Any eligible producer who suf-
fered losses during the 2011 crop
year is encouraged to visit a local
FSA office to learn more about
the SURE program and how to
apply.
As of Sept. 30, 2011, the De-
partment’s authority to operate
the SURE program expired along
with four other, important disas-
ter assistance programs: the Live-
stock Indemnity Program (LIP);
the Emergency Assistance for
Livestock, Honey Bees, and
Farm-Raised Fish (ELAP); the
Livestock Forage Disaster Pro-
gram (LFP); and the Tree Assis-
tance Program (TAP). Production
losses due to disasters occurring
after Sept. 30, 2011, are not eligi-
ble for disaster program coverage.
To be eligible for SURE, a farm
or ranch must have:
•At least a 10-percent produc-
tion loss on a crop of economic sig-
nificance;
•A policy or plan of insurance
under the Federal Crop Insur-
ance Act or the Noninsured Crop
Disaster Assistance Program
(NAP) for all economically signif-
icant crops;
•Been physically located in a
county that was declared a pri-
mary disaster county or contigu-
ous county by the Secretary of
Agriculture under a Secretarial
Disaster Designation. Without a
Secretarial Disaster Designation,
individual producers may be eli-
gible if the actual production on
the farm is less than 50 percent of
the normal production on the
farm due to a natural disaster. A
“farm” for SURE purposes means
the entirety of all crop acreage in
all counties that a producer
planted or intended to be planted
for harvest for normal commercial
sale or on-farm livestock feeding,
including native and improved
grassland intended for haying.
Producers considered socially
disadvantaged, a beginning
farmer or rancher, or a limited re-
source farmer may be eligible for
SURE without a policy or plan of
insurance or NAP coverage.
Farmers and ranchers inter-
ested in signing up must do so be-
fore the June 7, 2013 deadline.

2011 SURE program, visit any

Gov. Dennis Daugaard has ex-
tended an Executive Order to
haul over-width baled livestock
feed until Dec. 21, 2012, in South
Dakota.
The Executive Order states
that, upon receipt of a permit,
permission is granted to move
over-width baled livestock feed
not exceeding 12-feet-wide or 15-
feet-high for two hours after sun-
set and two hours before sunrise.
The order allows movement of
over-width baled livestock feed
until cessation of the drought
emergency, or no later than Dec.
21.
Over-width vehicles must be
equipped with flashing or rotat-
ing white or amber warning
lights on each side of the load’s
widest extremity. The warning
lights must be clearly visible to
motorists approaching from the
front and rear. Movement under
the Executive Order is valid only
for baled livestock feed.
“This year’s persistent drought
conditions have left livestock pro-
ducers across South Dakota with
inadequate feed supplies,” said
South Dakota Secretary of Agri-
culture Walt Bones. “Increasing
hauling height and width restric-
tions for baled hay will allow pro-
ducers to move feed in a more ef-
ficient manner.”
The normal size restriction on
South Dakota highway loads is
14-feet, 3-inches high and 8-feet,
6-inches wide.
Although height and width re-
strictions for baled livestock feed
have been temporarily increased
by Executive Order, several high-
ways in the state have width and
height restrictions in place be-
cause of construction or perma-
nent structures that cannot
accommodate such large loads.
Truckers are encouraged to check
their routes ahead of time for
those restrictions.
For information on permits,
contact a South Dakota port of
entry or call 800-637-3255.
Agriculture is South Dakota's
No. 1 industry, generating nearly
$21 billion in annual economic ac-
tivity and employing more than
80,000 South Dakotans. The
South Dakota Department of
Agriculture's mission is to pro-
mote, protect, preserve and im-
prove this industry for today and
tomorrow. Visit us online at

The South Dakota Stockgrow-
ers Association invites all area
producers for supper and a meet-
ing on Thursday, October 25 be-
ginning at 6:30 pm at Club 27 in
Kadoka.  
Bill Bullard, CEO of R-CALF
USA, will be the featured speaker
and will share information re-
garding R-CALF's recent lawsuit
defending Country of Origin La-
beling from the World Trade Or-
ganization. The lawsuit, filed by
R-CALF USA and the USA Made
Foundation, stems from the com-
plaints of Mexico and Canada
that the United States' Country of
Origin Labeling laws discrimi-
nate against their products. The
World Trade Organization agreed
with those countries and is forc-
ing the United States and USDA
to comply with their international
courts. The lawsuit by R-CALF
and supported by SD Stockgrow-
ers Association attempts to pro-
tect our sovereignty and the U.S.
Country of Origin Labeling laws
in support of United States pro-
ducers and consumers.
Also of interest to producers
will be a brief update on proposed
changes to South Dakota Brand
laws. Stockgrowers staff and
board members will also answer
any questions that members have
regarding other topics that Stock-
growers are covering.

Spencer made a motion, seconded

Ross Construction. All yes votes. Motion
carried.
Committee Meetings:
Department heads met with the
Council.
Greg Fisher – Extension of Culvert:
Much discussion was held in regards
to the extension of the culvert for Greg
Fisher’s would possibly make the water
become more of a problem for neigh-
bors. Greg Fisher asked the council if
they would provide the equipment and
labor to install the culverts. Greg felt
some of the issue of so much drainage
is since curb and gutter has been in-
stalled sending more water to the area.
Some of the Councilman felt it would
take too much of the guys’ time which
Greg Fisher felt it should only take one
half of a day or a little longer. Mayor
Haines stated he felt it would take longer
than that and asked Greg if he had
checked with any contractors to do the
job. A few Councilman felt our guys had
a lot to get done for winter and that there
isn’t time right now. Some Councilman
felt we have cleaned up other lots in
town and would like to help Greg out.
After this discussion, Greg Fisher stated
to the Council he would just do it on his
own and didn’t mean to create such a
problem and thanked the Councilman for
their time and their time they took to look
over the situation.
Savings Account Discussion:
Since it was brought up at the Budget
discussion on police car and ambulance,
the City needs to be preparing for the up-
coming purchases by putting back more
money. Debbie Brown would like to
change the transfer that is currently from
the lottery to Community Development to
lottery to Fixed Assets which is in the
general savings account but kept sepa-
rate on a spreadsheet to put back for the
police car. Then for the ambulance Cap-
ital Outlay transfer which is currently
$250 a month and $20 per run, change
to $750 a month and $20 per run. Coun-
cil agrees and Debbie Brown will have
on the next agenda.
Gym Floor:
Advanced Building Services Inc, sub-
mitted an estimate of $4,000 to do the
gym floor in November. Council agreed
to get it done in November.
Use of City Equipment:
Mayor Haines learned at the Munici-
pal League Convention that it is not a
good idea to leave a truck or any City
Equipment on someone else’s property
as we do with the City truck. Council
agreed to not rent out the City truck as
there are others around people can rent.
Code Book:
Mayor Haines also learned at the Mu-
nicipal League Convention of a code
book that can be referred to for items
needing done that can work with our or-
dinances. Eric Bogue will look it over
also.
Cell Phone Policy:
Mayor Haines would like the City to
look into a cell phone policy that was dis-
cussed at the Municipal League Conven-
tion. Debbie Brown will check with the
League on a sample.
Airport Insurance:
Butler Insurance submitted a pro-
posal of renewing the airport insurance
at $2,145. Spencer made a motion, sec-
onded by Inghram to approve renewing
the airport insurance. All yes votes. Mo-
tion carried.
Surplus Property:
Spencer made a motion, seconded
by Lightfield to declare the following as
surplus property: Ion Air Purifier (Ceiling
Mount), 3 Dewalt Cordless Drills (Parts
Only).
The following are surplus items to be
destroyed: Telephone, 2 monitors, com-
puter, 2 Motorola radios, fan, finger pain
roller, 12 volt power surge, computer
speakers, telephone radio system,
Maxon portable radio, mic radio, Pyaco
charger, Panasonic tough book, gateway
laptop, .223 gun barrel, computer and
keyboard, outdated gas masks, 2 Mo-
torola paging systems, Lexmark Printer,
Artec scanner, CB antenna. Motion car-
ried.
Building Permit:
David and Heather Kirkley submitted
a building permit on S 12’ Lot 4 and Lot
5 of Block 27 for a deck. Spencer made
a motion, seconded by Lightfield to ap-
prove the building permit which is within
their property line and Donn Dupper has
looked it over. Motion carried.
Executive Session:
Inghram made a motion, seconded
by Riley to retire into executive session
at 7:39 PM for possible litigation. Motion
carried.
Mayor Haines declared the Council
out of executive session at 7:46PM.
Lightfield made a motion, seconded
by Spencer to adjourn. Motion carried.

Mrs. Storm was present to express
her concerns about the building doors
being locked so much and the students
not having adequate access to get help
from teachers.
Mrs. Baye gave the superintendent’s
report. The NWAS Administrator’s Meet-
ing was held on October 2nd with the fol-
lowing items on the agenda: Academic
Olympics in Faith on April 17th, Spelling
Contest in Dupree on April 24th, test re-
visions this year for Personal Finance on
October 24th, winter unit move, staff per-
formance summaries, psychologist and
psychological services, birth to three pro-
gram, speech and ESA 5 update. Con-
ferences on September 27th were well
attended with the elementary having
about a 98% turnout and the high school
with about 54%. The Systems Change
Conference in Chamberlain is being at-
tended by Mr. Daughters, Mrs. Keiry and
Mrs. Seymour. We have been asked to
be a part of the SD College Access Chal-
lenge Grant again this year. This grant
provides $6,000.00 for the guidance
area to host parent FAFSA nights and
have additional speakers for our seniors
and training in the guidance area. Octo-
ber 18th is the end of the first Quarter.
Special Education records can be dis-
posed of after five years. We have been
advertising that the records will be elim-
inated from our files after November 1st.
The Data Retreat Leadership Team will
meet on October 15th to review the test
data with Holly Schumacher from the
NWAS ESA staff. They will examine the
data and plan for the staff meeting on
October 26th. Mrs. Bay has been work-
ing on the Personnel Record Form that
is due to the state in the fall of each year.
The Promethean Boards have been
hung in all the classrooms. Juniors and
seniors attended a college Career Day
on October 2nd and Super Apple Man
came for an elementary presentation.
Mrs. Storm received an award at the
West River History Conference in Rapid
City for the “Preservation of the History
of South Dakota.” Several staff attended
an RtI Learning Disabilities Reading
Workshop on October 9th.
Mrs. Baye read Mr. Daughter’s prin-
cipal’s report. Mrs. Fischbach, Mrs.
Williams and Mr. Daughters attended a
Senior Experience/Entrepreneurship
workshop on September 19th that ex-
plained each of the course areas schools
could offer to meet the requirement that
begins in the fall of 2013. Their feeling
at that meeting was that the Entrepre-
neurship Experience and Senior Experi-
ence would be the best fit in our district.
The county health nurse will be returning
October 15th to complete the health
screenings and will do screening at Mau-
rine on October 29th. Mr. Daughters is
attending the Systems Change Confer-
ence in Chamberlain and attending ses-
sions about the Administrator’s Role in
the Common Core as well as several
other break-out sessions on Thursday
and Friday.
Mrs. Baye also read an update report
on the RtI program from Mr. Daughters.
The process has been challenging but it
has also given us the opportunity to en-
gage our students in a different way of
thinking. Parts of the process of RtI are
not new to our district, but instead have
us utilizing and analyzing the data we
collect differently. Our staff has demon-
strated a commitment to understanding
the RtI process with RtI coordinators
from the state. They are devoted to im-
proving their reading skills in reading in-
struction for everyone and to provide
appropriate interventions when needed.
Noma Welter gave a library board re-
port. Linda Olson reported that there are
