Although it’s only September,
influenza has been detected in
South Dakota, prompting a state
health official to urge universal
“We have already reported four
confirmed cases of influenza, all
children,” said Dr. Lon
Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist
for the department. “Fortunately
the vaccine is readily available
this year and now is a good time
to be vaccinated.”
Kightlinger noted that 51.1%
of South Dakotans over age 6
months were vaccinated against
the flu during the 2011-2012 sea-
son, the highest rate in the na-
Annual flu vaccination is rec-
ommended for everyone, but some
groups are at higher risk for com-
plications – pregnant women,
people over 50 years and people
with chronic medical conditions.
Health-care workers and house-
hold contacts of high risk popula-
tions such as those with young
infants in the household should
especially be vaccinated.    
Dr. Kightlinger encouraged
parents to take advantage of the
free flu vaccine the state offers for
kids from six months to 18 years.
Kids account for a significant
number of flu cases and hospital-
izations each year and also help
spread the illness in the commu-
nity. Vaccinating children pro-
tects them and the people around
South Dakotans can also pre-
vent the spread of the flu by prac-
ticing the common sense

hours at the BHSU campus for
the latecomers to arrive, cheers

The deactivation ceremony
took place inside the Donald E.
Young Center. Dignitaries, in-
cluding Gov. Daaugard, US Sen-
ator Thune and US Congress-
woman Noem acknowledged the
work this group did in
Afghanistan, thanked the men
and women of the unit and wel-
comed them home.
Their commander said that the
activation this time was different
than their last deployment; this
time they were separated into
three units, all going to different
areas of the region and doing dif-
ferent jobs. Of the 160 members,
it was the first deployment for
113 of them, for the others it was
their 2nd, 3rd or even 4th time.
After the welcomes, roll call
was taken and each member re-
sponded and stood at attention,
then the group was deactivated
and are now regular National
Guardsmen again.
Following the ceremony, the
group paraded through Spearfish,
Whitewood, Belle Fourche and
Sturgis where they were wel-
comed home by spectators along
the route.
Among the 160 members in the
unit, from our area or with local
family ties are: Doyle Udager,
Matthew Vig, Eric Flatmoe, Kirk
Hulm, and Derek Austin.
It was a great day for all! Wel-
come home 842nd and thank you
for your service!!

Alice Edna Jones was born on
April 10, 1922 at Tall Timber
Ranch on Rabbit Creek, Perkins
Co., northwest of Faith, SD. Her
parents were Earl and Gertie
(Differding) Jones. Alice and her
brothers, George and Gilbert
walked 2 ½ miles to school at
Happy Hill with their lunch in
lard buckets. She later had 2
younger brothers Ronnie and
Clint. Alice loved music and she
learned to play the piano, accor-
dion and violin. One of her best
memories was helping her dad
play for neighborhood dances.
Alice worked for several people in
the Dupree and Faith area. She
got her first job when she was 13.
When her fiancée Kirk Hall
went to the Navy she followed
him to California. While there,
she worked in an aircraft factory,
was a soda jerk and then at-
tended and graduated from
beauty school. Alice and Boyd
Kirk Hall were married on De-
cember 4, 1942 in California.
Alice E. Hall
Alice traveled alone across the
country by bus and train following
him from port to port. After Kirk
was discharged from the Navy,
Alice worked as a beautician in
Chicago while he went to electrical
school. They eventually settled on
the Hall Ranch south of Meadow
and had two children, Bruce and
Yvonne. Alice worked side by side
with Kirk raising their children
and running the ranch.
They attended the Meadow
Presbyterian Church for many
years and Alice taught Sunday
School and Bible School and later
at the Bison Presbyterian Church.
She was a member of the Moreau
River Extension Club for 70 years.
She has always loved to help oth-
ers, bowl, and ride horseback.
Her husband Kirk died in 1987.
Alice continued to live in her home
on the ranch, until October of 2007
when she moved to Texas to stay
with her daughter, Yvonne. In
2003 her son Bruce passed away.

and ranchers who previously
were forced to sell livestock due to
drought, like the drought cur-
rently affecting much of the na-
tion, have an extended period of
time in which to replace the live-
stock and defer tax on any gains
from the forced sales, the Internal
Revenue Service announced
Farmers and ranchers who,
due to drought, sell more live-
stock than they normally would
may defer tax on the extra gains
from those sales. To qualify, the
livestock generally must be re-
placed within a four-year period.
The IRS is authorized to extend
this period if the drought contin-
The one-year extension of the
replacement period announced
today generally applies to capital
gains realized by eligible farmers
and ranchers on sales of livestock
held for draft, dairy or breeding
purposes due to drought. Sales of
other livestock, such as those
raised for slaughter or held for
sporting purposes, and poultry
are not eligible.
The IRS is providing this relief
to any farm located in a county,
parish, city or district, listed as
suffering exceptional, extreme or
severe drought conditions by the
National Drought Mitigation
Center (NDMC), during any
weekly period between Sept. 1,
2011, and Aug. 31, 2012. All or
part of 43 states are listed. Any
county contiguous to a county
listed by the NDMC also qualifies
for this relief.
As a result, farmers and ranch-
ers in these areas whose drought
sale replacement period was
scheduled to expire at the end of
this tax year, Dec. 31, 2012, in
most cases, will now have until
the end of their next tax year. Be-
cause the normal drought sale re-
placement period is four years,
this extension immediately im-
pacts drought sales that occurred
during 2008. But because of pre-
vious drought-related extensions
affecting some of these localities,
the replacement periods for some
drought sales before 2008 are also
affected. Additional extensions
will be granted if severe drought
conditions persist.
Details on this relief, including
a list of NDMC-designated coun-
ties, are available in Notice 2012-
62, posted today on IRS.gov.
Details on reporting drought
sales and other farm-related tax
issues can be found in Publication
225, Farmer’s Tax Guide, also
available on the IRS web site.

WALL – More than 400 members
attended the 60th  annual meet-
ing of the Golden West Telecom-
munications Cooperative at the
Wall Community Center on Sat-
urday, September 22nd. People
attending the event had the op-
portunity to vote in four board
member elections, hear about the
challenges and opportunities fac-
ing the cooperative, win several
door prizes and listen to the Itty
Bitty Opry Band.
One newcomer and three in-
cumbents were elected to the
board of directors for Golden West
Telecommunications this year.
The board members elected on
Saturday were: 
Rod Renner, of Wall, who ran
unopposed for a four-year term to
represent District II.  
Lee Briggs, of Midland, who
ran unopposed for a four-year
term to represent District III. 
Stewart Marty, of Hot Springs,
was elected to a four-year term to
represent District V. He will re-
place Harold Wyatt, who did not
seek re-election.
Jeff Nielsen, of Canistota, who
ran unopposed for a four-year
term to represent District IX.
Board President Rod Renner
began the day’s presentations by
speaking to the crowd about the
commitment of Golden West em-
ployees and board members. He
summarized Golden West’s sixty
years of service to its members
and thanked Harold Wyatt for his
nearly 25 years of dedication and
service to the cooperative. 
Golden West General Manager
Denny Law also recognized
Harold Wyatt’s service and talked
about Golden West building of a
one of the most robust telecom-
munications networks in the
state including the introduction of
Cable TV and Internet access.
Mr. Law then announced the
availability of faster Internet
speed options for both residential
and business customers. The new
speeds range from 6x1, 15x1,
25x2 to 30x5 and will soon be of-
fered in designated areas.
Mr. Law also addressed how
the Federal Communications
Commission’s (FCC) regulatory
policy changes will affect rural
companies like Golden West in
their ability to plan to invest in
future technology and infrastruc-
ture upgrades. He talked about
how the FCC is mandating fed-
eral guidelines on local service
rates and the resulting penalties
if companies choose not to follow
the guidelines. Law said Golden
West is working to make certain
the interests of rural customers
are understood at the FCC.  “Now
more than ever before we need to
make the case that our rural com-
munities deserve to have the
same access to advance technol-
ogy as our urban neighbors,”
stated Law.
The Itty Bitty Opry Band of
Rapid City entertained the crowd
with a variety of 1950’s songs,
Larry Cohen of Martin won the
$500 grand prize drawing. Next
year’s Golden West annual meet-
ing will be held on September 28,

Melissa came down from North

was a most exciting day and one
everyone had looked forward to
for a long time! The 842nd ar-
rived in Ft. Bliss, TX on Sept. 17
and spent 10 days there for demo-
bilization which was done very
gradually, according to nephew
Eric Flatmoe. There were over
1000 soldiers at the same time to
be demobilized so it took quite a
while. While in Afghanistan the
unit was split into 3 units. They
worked with Norway, Poland and
German armies. They completed
123 operations. Eric looked pretty
good after a year in the rugged
mountain area of Afghanistan,

long-term care insurance plan
certified by the Long-Term Care
Partnership Program benefits
people needing long term care
and their families, long term care
providers and the state's Medi-
caid program. 
The Long-Term Care Partner-
ship Program is a public-private
partnership that offers individu-
als quality, affordable long-term
care insurance without depleting
their assets. The South Dakota
Department of Social Services
began offering free educational
sessions on the program in 2007
to raise awareness about long-
term care insurance and the ben-
efits for South Dakotans.
The fall 2012 educational ses-
sion schedule includes stops in
several communities from Sep-
tember through November. Ses-
sions will include basic
information on long-term care,
the costs related to it, how to plan
for long-term care needs, what
Medicare and Medicaid will cover
and how the Long-Term Care
Partnership Program can help.
The educational sessions are free
and open to the public. Each ses-
sion is scheduled for one hour.

The prairie is still brown and
dry. Dust billows up from any-
thing that moves, be it vehicle or
critter. This is the time of year
when everything that pokes and
sticks comes into action. Beware
bare feet on carpets, there could
be sandburs, burdock or cactus
lurking there brought in by pant
legs or rubber soled shoes. This is
the season of fall shots for cattle
and doctoring sick calves. It is
also the season of beautiful fall fo-
liage on the trees and hazey skies.
Antelope season started this past
Saturday but we didn’t see the
major amounts of hunters that
other years have shown.
Our family had a happy occa-
sion Saturday when my nephew
Max Thompson married Katrina
Fulton. The wedding was held at
“Sunshine Valley Gardens”. Bear
Butte was visible in the back-
ground as the couple took their
vows. Glen King was a grooms-
man and his daughter, Cashley,
was the flower girl. Elke and
Koyle were also there, as were De
and Kay King. Others from this
area included the following:
Drinda and Mickey Simons and
family, Sara Antrim and kids,
Lacey, Robert and Quirt Won-
dercheck, Jim and Vonnie O’Dea,
Bob and LaVonne Hansen, An-
nelle and George Afdahl, Joel,
Claudine and Josh Afdahl and
Harold and I. Adele and Denver
Enright and Mitch and Colette
Enright of Timber Lake also
made the festivities. Mary
Mooney, Mike Mooney, Jerry and
Bev Mooney, Jake (Eugene)  and
Lynn Mooney and Dana all joined
the group. Congratulations Max
and Katrina, may you celebrate
65 years together!
I started this the other day and
darned if it didn't rain just
enough to settle some of the dust
on Sunday night. Lacey and Quirt
Wondercheck visited Grandpa
Irvin Thompson at the Philip
Nursing Home Sunday. On the
trip down they spotted a fire
south of Plainview Church. The
church members were out check-
ing for the fire so Lacey stopped.
Between her and Vonnie O'Dea
they notified folks and the fire-
men got it under control. The area
had "dry lightning" go through
that started it all. Aren't cell
phones great when you NEED to
call for help!
Tucker and Bev Hudson drove
to Burke SD Thursday to visit
Brad and Tela Hutchison family.
They were able to go to Butte
Neb. that night to watch Whitney
play volleyball. They returned
home Friday.
Brian Baldwin and Tarri
Sorenson    of Rapid City were
Sunday dinner guests at Tucker
Hudsons and helped them trail
cattle down to the Howes Grazing
Assoc. headquarters.
Not much I can tell so we'll call
it good for now.

the older brother of Dan, John,
Lorie, and Larry Rhoden and son
of the late Allen and Mildred Rho-
den. David and his wife, Jean-
nine, have resided in Denver, CO.
The funeral service will be held at
the Community Baptist Church
this Sunday, Oct.7 at 2:00 pm. A

lowship room. The burial will be
held at the Red Owl Cemetery fol-
lowing the reception. Pastor Wes
Labrier will be officiating and the
Circuit Riders Quartet will fur-
nish special music with Sylvia
Rhoden as the pianist.
A big 'thank you' goes out to
those who prayed for rain last
week. The weekend brought
about some scattered showers
that gave the ground a little sigh
of relief. As dry as our prairies
and West River hills have been,
the fall colors were brilliant be-
fore they began falling from the
trees. One couldn't tell there was
a drought just by observing the
rich, full trees of autumn colors
last week. As folks continue to
pray for rain we are hopeful this
week will bring more moisture.
Our dams are in a sad state of af-
We are proud that one of our
own from Central Meade County,
Shawn Harwood, was amongst
those returning with the 842nd
Engineering Company. They had
a great welcoming ceremony in
Spearfish and paraded through
Sturgis on Thursday of last week.
We'd like to extend a warm 'wel-
come home' to Shawn and the rest
of the 842nd. Shawn is the son of
Steve and Debbie Harwood of
Union Center.
The Prairie Bible Church of
God will be hosting a Chili &
Chicken Noodle Soup Supper and
Fall Festival. It will be Saturday,
October 27, from 4:00-7:30 at the
Central Meade County Commu-
nity Center. They will have a
soup and pie supper, silent auc-
tion, face painting, games, activi-
ties, bouncing castle, and more.
Proceeds will go to the Prairie
Bible Church of God building
fund for the basement and finish-
ing of their new parsonage. One
may see the new parsonage near
the church as you cruise by on
Highway 34.
Don Anders and family will be
at the Community Baptist
Church in Union Center on Sun-
day, Oct. 14 through Tuesday, Oc-
tober 16th. They will begin with
Sunday service as well as an
evening service at 7:00 pm on Oct.
14, followed by Monday and Tues-
day evening services at 7:00 pm.
The Maurine School visited the
Stoneville School Museum re-
cently. The teachers are Rick
Moore and Sherry Seymour. An-
other class from Takini has
scheduled a field trip to the mu-

The season in Central Meade
County is one of moving cows
home and selling calves. While
some take their cattle to the sale
barns, others ship their calf crop
to cattle buyers in other states.
Calf prices are doing well, how-
ever, fuel and feed prices to main-
tain our herds are up.

Investing in America’s Rural Com-
As producers face an historic
and ongoing drought today, Pres-
ident Obama and I are doing all
we can to help farmers and ranch-
ers mitigate its effects – while
helping communities to overcome
the economic challenges posed by
the drought.
To carry out our work on be-
half of communities and produc-
ers, USDA has relied on
programs authorized by the 2008
Farm Bill. Parts of that law, in-
cluding authorization of USDA
disaster assistance for livestock
producers, expired last year.
Other aspects of the law expire on
October 1st and over the next few
months if Congress fails to act.
Unfortunately, the House lead-
ership has left Washington with-
out passing a new comprehensive,
multiyear Food, Farm and Jobs
Bill. When the current Farm Bill
expires, this will leave producers
with needless uncertainty as they
work hard to get through the cur-
rent drought – particularly Amer-
ica’s dairy producers, who will
lose access to a critical dairy
safety net program on September
Inaction by Congress also
threatens USDA’s efforts to in-
vest in our small towns, and help
grow the rural economy. One good
example is our capacity to provide
community infrastructure and fa-
cilities across the nation.
Since 2009, USDA has made a
record level of loans and grants to
small towns to help them provide
more community services and
build more community facilities.
In fact, our efforts have made pos-
sible more than 7,700 community
facilities projects nationwide, im-
pacting nearly 31 million rural
That includes more than 3,200
projects to improve public safety
– putting in a police or fire sta-
tion, for example, or helping a
town replace an aging piece of fire
It includes more than 1,000
medical clinics and hospitals, re-
ducing the long drives you some-
times face to visit a doctor, and
ensuring that care is readily
available in case of a medical
And it includes projects to im-
prove education opportunities for
rural Americans. We’ve invested
in projects to build or improve
more than 900 schools and com-
munity colleges, along with 475
libraries, to ensure that rural
Americans have the same educa-
tional opportunities as city resi-
These community facilities are
just one piece in our plan to em-
power rural America – and they
stand as a part of the long list of
record achievements USDA has
posted in the past three years.
At USDA, we will continue our
efforts to help producers and to
invest in small towns and rural
communities. Meanwhile we need
Congress to get their job done to
ensure that we can continue these
accomplishments in the coming
