The Faith City Council over-
turned Mayor Haines’ veto of the
annexation for the Bill Hibner
property north of town at their
September 3rd meeting. Haines
vetoed Councils’ decision follow-
ing their motion at the August
20th meeting. Haines thought
they should give this a little
more thought for future develop-
ment of property just outside the
city limits. Inghram asked how
they were going to grow the town
if they don’t annex. Haines re-
sponded that not everybody who
would be within the 3 mile limit
is going to want to annex in.
Justin Inghram expressed his
concern over the fact of people
outside the limits being able to
choose what city services they
wanted and not be annexed in.
This puts an extra burden on
those living in town. If the town
is going to grow they need to
annex. Sandy Rasmussen said if
people want to be in the city lim-
its they need to abide by all the
city ordinances. Lexy Hostetter
says this would create a prece-
dent for infrastructure and won-
dered who’s going to pay for it.
Will our rates increase again?
Mayor Haines said that any de-
velopment out of the city limits
is the property owner’s expense,
including any repairs.
Atty. Bogue said, “According
to the City charter you need 3/4
vote (5 members) to override the
Mayor’s veto; if you don’t get the
five votes the original motion
stands.” Berndt said she had
several residents that support
Council’s decision. Council mem-
bers overrode the Mayor’s veto so
the decision to annex property
for services will stand.
Hibner asked that the City
write a letter for Tri County
Water that they had denied him
water. According to Tri County
Water statutes they will not con-
nect if the property is within
three miles of city water unless
the city denies the request. Jim
Holloway said Tri County has
had a moratorium on any new
hookups. Atty. Bogue will gladly
write a letter, but stated that the
city did not refuse him water.
Hibner didn’t want to be an-
nexed in to get the water.
Council held two executive
sessions furing this meeting to
discuss personnel.
City council overrides mayor’s veto
By Loretta Passolt
In other business, Council re-
scinded an earlier motion to pur-
chase a switch for the pump
house from Dakota Pump and
Control in Watertown. Dupper
didn’t realize there were two dif-
ferent ones, Dakota Pump LLC
is in Mitchell with a branch of-
fice in Rapid City. Dupper found
the same switch with the
Mitchell business, at about
$1,000 less.
Council approved the first
reading of Ordinance #305,
Budget. Debbie said she had al-
most everything in that has been
discussed. The ambulance isn’t
in yet, she needs an idea of the
expense for a chassis, although
they have been putting money
aside. The two biggest projects
for the next year are streets and
airport. Debbie said that sales
tax has been increasing, but
video lottery is still declining.
Council also:
• Apprved use of Community
Center for two wedding dances
• Approved transfer of funds
for the telephone and water
tower repair
• Tabled a decision on scrap
iron at the dump awaiting a
quote
• Approved transfer of addi-
tional funds
The 2013 Northern Division
Championship of The Bass Fed-
eration (TBF) wrapped up on the
Ohio River in Wheeling, WV last
Friday. Seven states sent their
top twelve anglers to compete for
a slot in the 2014 Federation Na-
tional Championship (FNC)
tournament next spring.
The race remained tight
across the board as anglers
struggled to land many bites.
The weights were so close that
only a few pounds separated 1st
thru 20th going into the final
day.
Boating three bass on the
final day, Faith, South Dakota
native, Lance Hildebrandt, se-
cured his spot as the top South
Dakota angler qualifying as a
Boater for the 2014 Federation
National Championship. Sitting
5th for South Dakota going into
the final day, Alan Hildebrandt
knew he needed a 5 fish limit to
have a chance at making the
FNC and he caught just that.
Five bass weighing 7-08 pounds
were enough to jump Alan to 2nd
place in South Dakota and se-
cure a spot as a Co-Angler at the
2014 FNC. This Father-Son com-
bination will represent South
Dakota among the top anglers in
the country and compete for a
chance to win the “Living the
Dream” package which includes
full sponsorship and entry fees
paid to the Wal-Mart FLW Pro-
fessional Tour.
The South Dakota Bass Fed-
eration is a grassroots organiza-
tion that is focused on growing
the sport of bass fishing in South
Dakota. Youth events occur an-
nually and more information can
be found for both the youth and
adult federations at www.South-
DakotaBass.com.

Audrey Louise Gerlach, a
twin and the youngest of five
children, was born January 31,
1919, to Oscar and Mary
(Weinandy) Lund on a ranch
near Faith.  Audrey's mother
passed away two days later. Her
father was left to raise five chil-
dren, two of them newborns and
the oldest only five years old.
Audrey and her siblings at-
tended the one-room school at
Arrowhead where their father
drove the horse-drawn school
bus. After graduating from Faith
High School in 1936, she and her
twin sister Joan came to
Rapid  City to attend Black Hills
Business College and stayed to
work   for Buckingham Trans-
portation Company. It was dur-
Audrey Louise Gerlach
ing these pre-World War II years
that she met Chuck Gerlach.
They were married on her birth-
day in 1942.
Within weeks of their wed-
ding, Chuck enlisted in the U.S.
Navy and Audrey spent the next
few years living and working in
Civil Service positions in Bre-
merton, Washington and
Portsmouth, Virginia, both
places where Chuck was sta-
tioned when not deployed aboard
the small aircraft carrier, the
U.S.S. Guadalcanal.  
Following the war they re-
turned to Rapid City where they
made their home until her death.
Audrey was a meticulous and
talented homemaker, a devoted
mother, constant helpmate to
her husband of 71 years, and
stalwart to their extended fam-
ily. Her door was always open
and guests warmly welcome.
When they arrived with no ad-
vance notice at meal time, the
table was quickly reset, and a
nourishing and tasty repast
seemed to effortlessly appear.
Whatever the task, there was
never anyone who worked
harder, faster, with greater en-
ergy or more humility than Au-
drey. When there was need, she
was there. Once her children
were raised, Audrey worked for
a number of years at a local jew-
elry store,  retiring from Obergs
Jewelry in 1984. She was an ac-
tive member of the Rapid City
community and many of its or-
ganizations but was particularly
involved with the First Presbyte-
rian Church where she served as
an elder and actively partici-
pated in the Presbyterian
Women's Association. She was
also a Past Matron of Golden
Link Chapter 14, Order of the
Eastern Star, a member of Nydia
Club and Daughters of the Nile.
She and Chuck loved socializ-
ing with their many friends and
family members, whether travel-
ing and camping in their motor
home, playing cards, or sitting
together after a good meal she
had served, telling stories.Their
gatherings and the home she
created were filled with love and
laughter.
Audrey died Monday, August
26, 2013. She is survived by her
two children, Linda Brady, Lit-
tleton, CO and Mel Gerlach,
Prescott, AZ; her twin sister
Joan Ebert and brother Gene
Lund, both of Rapid City; four
grandchildren, and five great-
grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by
her parents, sister Eudora Wal-
ters, and brother, Vern Lund.
Her husband, Chuck, died on
Saturday, September 7, 2013.
Memorial services will be at
10:30 on Friday, Sept. 13, at the
First Presbyterian Church in
Rapid City.  Interment will fol-
low in Black Hills National
Cemetery.
Memorials may be directed to
First Presbyterian Church in
Rapid City.
Arrangements are with Os-
heim & Schmidt Funeral Home
in Rapid City.
Her online guestbook is avail-
able to sign at www.osheim-
schmidt.com.
Mary Deis, age 90 of Philip,
died Monday, September 9,
2013, at the Hans P. Peterson
Memorial Hospital in Philip.
Mary M. (Sahli) Deis was born
February 3, 1923 at Zeeland, ND
to Kasper and Julia (Gabriel)
Sahli. She and her parents
moved to Roscoe, SD where she
grew up and received her educa-
tion.
Mary was united in marriage
to Larry Deis on June 6, 1945 at
Salinas, CA. After his discharge
from the military, they made
their home in Roscoe, SD where
they both worked for Mary’s dad
at the Sahli Red Owl Grocery
Store. Their oldest daughter,
Julie, was born during the time
they were living in Roscoe.
In 1949, Larry and Mary
moved to Dupree, SD, where
they owned and operated Deis’s
General Store until 1965. Their
youngest daughter, Leanne, was
born in Dupree.
In 1966, they moved to Philip,
SD, where they owned and oper-
ated Deis’s Food Center. In 1978,
they retired due to Larry’s
health. They treasured their
time with one another and with
family and friends. Their grand-
children have priceless memo-
ries of spending their summers
with Grandma and Grandpa.
Mary cared for Larry until his
death, March 21, 1992. Mary
continued to make her home in
Philip. Shortly after Larry’s
death, she met the second love of
her life, a maltese dog named,
Baby. They shared an amazing
bond and he brought her many
years of companionship and joy.
Prayer, church, and the rosary
were a part of Mary’s daily rou-
tine. She lived her faith. Mary
spent many evenings cooking for
the local parish priest.
Mary was a member of the Sa-
cred Heart Catholic Church and
the Evening Guild Tribe 3; and
also a member of the Wheeler-
Brooks American Legion Auxil-
iary 173; all of Philip.
In her later years, Mary had
the reputation of having a lead
foot while driving through town
and she had the ability to track
anyone down by phone. We will
miss Mary’s voice on the other
end of the line.
Grateful for having shared
her life are her two daughters,
Julie Deis of El Segundo, CA,
Leanne (Mick) Kennedy Faith,
SD; six grandchildren, Lee
(Mike) Bakos, Lisa (Richard)
Galien of Manhattan Beach, CA,
Vikki Hoven of San Francisco,
CA, Reggie (Jacki) Kennedy,
Mikki (Dale) Haines, and Kyle
(Amy) Kennedy all of Faith, SD;
eight great-grandchildren; two
sisters, Barb Schwan of Ab-
erdeen, SD, Jeanie Schmitt of
Roscoe, SD; and one sister-in-
law Delores Sahli of Roscoe, SD;
and a host of other relatives and
friends.
She was preceded in death by
her husband, Larry in 1992; her
parents; and one brother, Harold
Sahli.
Visitation will be held Thurs-
day, September 12, at the Sacred
Heart Catholic Church in Philip,
with a vigil service at 7:00 p.m.
Mass of Christian Burial will
be held 10:00 a.m. Friday, Sep-
tember 13, at Sacred Heart
Catholic Church, with Father
Kevin Achbach as celebrant.
Interment will be held at the
Masonic Cemetery in Philip.
A memorial has been estab-
lished.
Arrangements are with the
Rush Funeral Home of Philip.
Her online guestbook is avail-
able at

Our little town on the prairie
had temeperatures mostly in the
90s this past week. There were a
couple days in the 80s. We fi-
nally got a little moisture this
week. It started raining around
10:00 Sunday night, along with
plenty of thunder and lightning.
The official measurement was
.32”. I understand they really got
hit north of here Saturday night,
lots of hail damage.
Belated condolences to the
family of Patrick Eagle Chasing.
Patrick was the brother of Jim
Lightfield, Angel Kennedy and
Kay Palmer. His service was
held last Thursday in Eagle
Butte.
Received this email from
Marie DeKnikker: I thought
someone might be interested in
Lois Naslund Doyle’s address. I
just learned that her husband
Jack passed away on Friday the
6th. Her daughter-in-law Dixie
just called and gave me the fol-
lowing address: 326 Voleny
Lane, Encinitas, CA 92024. Our
condolences to the family. Jack
was a former Longhorns basket-
ball coach for many years.
Condolences also to the family
of Della Rae Mickelson. She
passed away in California where
she was undergoing cancer treat-
ments. Her service will be this
Saturday.
Eldora Fischbach went to
Rapid City last Wednesday. She
taught another quilt class on Fri-
day. Dave had to stay home to
trail his cattle to town Saturday
for the sale on Monday. Eldora
had Sunday dinner with Marge
Hoffman at one of the restau-
rants. Marge also had three
nieces from Billings, Montana
spend a few days with her. They
left on Sunday.
I don’t know how I did this,
but I missed my news last week.
Paul and I went to Rapid City on
Friday afternoon, Sept. 30th, to
take in the car races. Melissa
was down from North Dakota,
too. Dave and Eldora also came
to watch nephew Eric. And, he
had his best night ever! Eric fin-
ished in second place in the
main; behind Randy Miller who
no one seems to be able to beat!
He finished fifth in the point
standings for the year. Wonder
how he’d have done if he hadn’t
missed five nights waiting for his
engine and attending Guards!
We went back again this past
weekend for the Black Hiills
Speedway Nationals, for a two-
night event. Melissa was also
down. Eldora joined us at the
races. Unfortunately, Eric didn’t
get to run Friday night as he had
Guards, but ran Saturday night.
He won his heat and finished 6th
in the main. We got in a little
visit with his sister Wendy Kuno
at the races Saturday night.
That was the end of the season
at BH Speedway. Eric is going to
a two-day event in Billings, MT
in a couple weeks but we won’t
be going! Melissa spent Saturday
with Takayla Lightfield and her
mom Charmagne shopping for a
wedding dress. Takayla is plan-
ning a May 2014 wedding.
While I was shopping on Sat-
uday, I went in to Herbergers
and I couldn’t believe they had
Christmas trees up and deco-
rated already!!! Ridiculous! It’s
bad enough when they have
them up before Halloween!
Congratulations to the Lady
Longhorn volleyball team on
thier victory over McIntosh last
Thursday. The girls will be trav-
eling to Lemmon tomorrow,
Thursday for games at 6:00, and
will be competing in a tourna-
ment in Mobridge this Saturday.
The cross country team hosted
the Ryan Day Memorial Run last
Friday morning. There were sev-
eral new teams here this year.
RC Christian won the boys’ team
trophy. This was Coach
Gustafson’s last home meet. She
will be retiring from the Faith
School at the end of the school
year. She was coaching when our
two kids, Nick and Melissa, were
running and both went to State
in cross county. She’s been a
good coach. I hope the program
continues. The cross country
team will be traveling to Wall
this Friday for a meet.
Congratulations to the foot-
ball boys on their win over Bison
Friday night. The boys will be
hosting Sully Buttes this Friday
night at 6:00, instead of the
usual 7:00.

Central Meade County News
By Sandy Rhoden
Marcus News
By Vicky Waterland
Interesting weather continues
in South Dakota. Tonight, Sun-
day night, Meade County and
most of Western South Dakota,
are under a severe thunderstorm
watch until 1:00 A.M. Amazing
as it is, our area at Marcus is
still fairly green, and it is Sep-
tember. As we travel, other areas
are not as green. North of Philip
and New Underwood both show
a lack of moisture. The best part
is the fire danger is less now
than it had been earlier in the
summer.
Annellle and George Afdahl
are back from George’s check up
in Rochester, Minnesota.
Wednesday they drove to Manly,
Iowa where they visited Kay and
Norman Backhaus and Annelle’s
nephew, Rick Backhaus. They
also drove to Garretson, South
Dakota where Annelle’s grandfa-
ther, Jack Ellefson, came from.
While there they contacted an
elderly family relative and were
able to visit the old family home.
Sounds to me like they had a
very enjoyable trip.
Tucker and Bev Hudson spent
the weekend in Sturgis for their
50th Class Reunion. 50 of their
classmates returned from 10
states. There were 16 deceased
classmates. The reunion started
Friday night with an informal
social at the VFW, tour of the old
HS on Saturday, then a banquet
and dance Saturday night at
VFW, with a brunch Sunday at
the Lions Park gazebo. Whew,
you folks must be tired but
happy, Bev.
Saturday, Robert Won-
dercheck and Allen Waterland
worked cattle giving fall shots.
Those helping were Bub and
Troy Thompson, Harold Water-
land, Nick Caspers, Dan Jordan,
Chad King and Brad Austin. De-
spite having strep throat, Robert
Wondercheck worked all day in
the heat. Lacey, Robert and boys
have all been down with strep
this week. Sounds like it is going
around.  
Wednesday, Harold and I
drove to Wall where he picked up
spray for his fields. On the way
home we stopped so I could visit
my dad, Irvin. He has been down
in the dumps so I went back
Thursday and visited for several
hours.
Adele and Denver Enright
spent a few days in the Aberdeen
Hospital this past week. Den-
ver’s tube had plugged up again.
Saturday, Annelle and George
Afdahl, drove to Timber Lake to
visit them.
I was asked to post Lois
Naslund Doyle’s address if any-
one cared to send a sympathy
card. The address is 326 Voleny
Lane, Encinitas, CA. 92024 Her
husband, Jack, passed away this
past week.
Remember the Collins/Myles
family Reunion September 28 in
Faith. I don’t have a time but I’m
sure one of the family members
would know more details.
Doreen Davis, Elizabeth City,
NC would like to buy a 1910-
1960 Faith Country Book if any-
one has one available. Doreen
lived in Faith next to my Aunt
Nonabelle Ellefson and taught at
Takini for 4 years and was a
counselor at Eagle Butte for 5
years.
Saturday, I helped Lacey
Wondercheck prepare the noon
meal for the vaccinating crew. As
we worked we discussed what it
must have been like to feed a
crew in by-gone days. The crew
that came to my mind was a
threshing crew so I looked on-
line for information. According to
what I read, a crew usually con-
sisted of 20 men. We only fed 12
people Saturday and it took all
morning and several hours the
day before to do that. Ladies can
you imagine doing all that with-
out running water in a hot little
house or outdoors cooking over a
fire? We had air conditioning
and believe me we needed it.
What of the number of plates re-
quired to feed the men, or did
they just eat sandwiches and
other finger foods? Lacey men-
tioned that in many of the old
Bohemian recipes she’s seen
there were lots of recipes for
meat dishes made with a crust so
they could be held. People did
not have the surplus of plates
and flatware like we do today.
The homes were small and stor-
age was minimal at best. What
did they do? Out of curiosity I
looked up when paper plates and
plastic ware were invented.
Plates were first made in 1904
by Martin Keyes. Plastic utensils
came along in February of 1950.
The patent for them belonged to
Marvin Glass. All my questions
made me wish I had attended
the Coal Springs Threshing Bee
at some time or other. Does any-
one remember how the cooks
handled the dishes and flatware?
Three meals a day for 20 men for
at least two days can amount to
a lot of work. Top all that off
with milking, separating, churn-
ing, carrying water, chopping
wood and dumping ashes and
you have a bunch of darn busy
ladies. Girls, aren’t we lucky to
have all we do?
In reading the obituaries in
the Rapid City Journal yester-
day, Harold came across a man
named Melvin Fossey. Harold
thinks that the family used to
live in this area because his par-
ents stopped and visited them in
Rapid City. Does anyone remem-
ber the name and where they
lived, IF they ever lived out
here? His parents may have
known them from the Sioux
Falls area.
I would also like to ask if any-
one knows what became of
Melvin and Bonnie Tivis. My
aunts were talking about them
when they visited in August but
we could not seem to find what
became of them.
Got any answers for me? Call
985-5318 or email vickywater-

Central Meade County finally
received some moisture after
missing 2-3 inch rains that went
north over the weekend. Sunday
night offered up .83 inch of rain,
but also threw in some strong
winds that tore the cover off of
the hoop barn at Larry and
Sandy Rhoden's. Up until then
it was getting quite dry in Cen-
tral Meade County.
We are deeply saddened by
the loss of Della Rae Mickelson,
wife of Sam Mickelson. They
have hosted Cedar Canyon Bible
Camp for many years. She
passed away in Santa Barbara,
California where they had gone
for cancer treatment. The fu-
neral will be Saturday, Sept. 14
at 10:00 am at the Prairie Home
Church on Hwy. 212. Details to
follow next week. Our deepest
sympathy goes out to Sam,
Travis, Tyler, Timmy, Fran, Fay,
and Felicia and their families.
during this time of loss. They are
in our prayers this week.
The baby shower and wedding
shower for the Ben & Laura
Meyers and James Ingalls en-
gagement was an enjoyable
event that was well attended on
Sunday afternoon at the Com-
munity Baptist Church.
The Faith Longhorns cap-
tured their second win last Fri-
day night against Bison. The
Faith JV team played in a four
team round robin in Wall on Sat-
urday where they came out with
2 wins. They also played a game
on Monday night in Faith. Tris-
ten Rhoden and Wyatt Schulke
are on JV as well as varsity foot-
ball. Chaney Keffeler is on var-
sity.
The Annual Ag Banquet will
be held in the fall once again this
year and takes place on Sept.21
in Sturgis. This has been an en-
joyable event for many in Meade
County. It was even more enjoy-
able last year when the event
took place on a beautiful fall day,
rather than a cold wintery day.
There will be a reunion of 'all'
classes that have graduated
more than 50 years ago on Sep-
tember 27. Dinner will be served
at the Vets Club in Sturgis at
6:00 pm for all who are able to
attend. For further information
one can call Rosalee Simons in
Sturgis.
Roger and Traci Donovan and Newton and Debbie Brown are pleased
to announce the upcoming marriage of their children Brandi Marie
Donovan and Clay William Brown.

Senator John Thune today an-
nounced his selection of Ryan
and Rhonda Kelly and their fam-
ily of Rapid City for the 2013 An-
gels in Adoption Award
presented by the Congressional
Coalition on Adoption, of which
Thune is a member. The Kellys
have welcomed six daughters
from China into their family in
the last eight years. 
Ryan and Rhonda Kelly were
high school sweethearts that
eventually married and had four
biological children: Jacob,
Joshua, Julia, and Jonah. Over
the last eight years, the Kelly
family has welcomed six girls
from China into their family:
Jenna, Jocelyn, Jade, Jolise,
Janelle, and Joy.  They have
adopted girls as young as 18
months to age 14.  
“Ryan and Rhonda’s commit-
ment to meet the unique physi-
cal and emotional needs of each
child and help them develop and
flourish is truly remarkable,”
said Thune. “Their desire to pro-
vide loving, stable homes to their
adopted daughters makes me
proud to select them to receive
the 2013 Angels in Adoption
award.” 
“Adoption has given our girls
the medical care they need, a
family to love them and care for
them forever, and a chance for a
great future,” said
Rhonda. “Adoption has given the
rest of us in our family an en-
tirely different outlook on
life.  We don’t sweat the small
things.  We look at the big pic-
ture. We love each other, support
each other, have empathy for
each other, and get to witness
the miracle of adoption each and
every day. We are all blessed by
adoption.”
The Kellys, along with Angels
in Adoption recipients from
around the country, will be in-
vited to an awards banquet in
Washington, D.C. next month.
Consumers visiting their local
meat counter to purchase steaks
and hamburgers for grilling over
Labor Day weekend may experi-
enced some sticker shock over
the price of beef and thought cat-
tle producers must be making a
lot of money. They would have
been correct about the first part,
but not the second, said Darrell
Mark, Adjunct Professor of Eco-
nomics at South Dakota State
University.
"Retail prices have hovered
near record highs for several
months. In fact, according to the
most recent figures, in July re-
tail beef prices averaged a record
$5.357 per pound. That same
month, fed cattle prices only av-
eraged $1.19 per pound," Mark
said.
As a result, he said the spread
between the retail value of beef
from a carcass and the live ani-
mal was quite wide in July 2013.
"In fact, this live-to-retail
price spread was record large in
July at about $1,253 per head,"
Mark said. He noted that this es-
timated spread is calculated
using average carcass yields of
beef. "It also includes the value
of hide and offal products that
are sold, which were also record
high in July," he added.
The live-to-retail price spread
has averaged almost $100 per
head, or 9 percent higher in the
first seven months of 2013 com-
pared to the same time period
last year.
Dissecting the live-to-retail
price spread into margins before
and after beef harvesting/pro-
cessing can help identify what
segments of the industry are
profitable (or not profitable). The
live-to-cutout processing margin
averaged about $169 per head in
July, suggesting that beef pack-
ers with "average" costs would
have been making less than $20
per head. Seasonally, July is the
month with the widest live-to-
cutout processing margin. In the
first four months of the year, this
packer gross margin averaged
close to $90 per head, which
would have been unprofitable for
Cattle prices don't follow
meat counter prices
most all packers/processors.
The difference between the
wholesale value of the beef sold
by packers and the retail value
at the supermarket is the gross
margin that the retail industry
has to cover its costs to market
beef to consumers. In July, this
cutout-to-retail price spread av-
eraged a record $1,085 per head.
From January to July 2013, this
spread averaged $1,031 per
head, almost $85 per head
higher than the same seven
months in 2012.
How retailers retain profit
majority
"Based upon the estimated
gross processing margin for a
beef processor and the market-
ing margin for retailers, it ap-
pears that the majority of the
profits available from beef sales
are currently being held at the
retail level," Mark said.
He explained that a couple of
factors contribute to retailers'
ability to keep these profits.
"First, retail prices tend to be
Thune

family for

“Angels in
Adoption”
Award
fairly "sticky" and once prices go
up, they don't tend to come down
very quickly or vice versa because
consumers generally dislike ex-
treme price variability -especially
of the magnitude that ag produc-
ers deal with in the commodities
markets," he said. "Second, beef
packers/processors have gener-
ally been unable to push boxed
beef prices much beyond $2 per
pound this year for a sustained
period of time. When they have,
retailers tend to switch features
to competing meats, which are
growing in supply."
He added that the cattle feed-
ing industry hasn't been earning
a profit this year either.
"Losses to cattle feeding (on a
strictly cash basis) have averaged
nearly $160 per head so far in
2013. It has improved in recent
months, but the $1.19 per pound
average fed cattle price in July
still resulted in average losses for
that month around $82 per head,"
Mark said.

Over two dozen South
Dakotans will travel to the na-
tion’s capital next week to urge
lawmakers to pass a comprehen-
sive five-year farm bill before the
current extension expires at the
end of the month. The group will
travel Sept. 9-11 as part of the
South Dakota Farmers Union
delegation attending the Na-
tional Farmers Union’s annual
Fly-In to Washington, D.C. The
group will join hundreds of other
Farmers Union members from
across the country who will
gather in the nation’s capital to
talk with members of Congress.
“There isn’t much time for
Congress to get a farm bill
passed before the Sept. 30 dead-
line,” said South Dakota Farm-
ers Union President Doug
Sombke who will lead his state’s
group to Washington. “It’s criti-
cal that we get a farm bill passed
before the expiration date, and
we’ll be making our case to mem-
bers of Congress that rural
America needs a bill, and we
need it done now.”
The last farm bill was passed
in 2008. It was extended for one
year in 2012 and will expire at
the end of September. The U.S.
Senate passed a comprehensive
bill this summer, but the House
defeated its own version on the
floor. The House then passed a
bill stripping nutrition programs
and leaving only farm programs.
A conference committee will be
appointed with members from
both the House and the Senate
to negotiate a compromise bill
between the two chambers.
“The first priority is going to
be urging House leadership to
appoint conferees to work out
the differences with the Senate’s
bill,” Sombke said. “The Senate’s
already named its conferees, and
the House needs to do the same
before we can move forward.”
South Dakota Farmers Union
joined a coalition this summer
made up of agriculture, conser-
vation, energy, and business
groups along with the state’s
largest network of charitable
food banks to launch a ‘Back the
Farm Bill’ campaign. It was
aimed at educating the public
and gaining support for a com-
prehensive five-year farm bill.
South Dakota Farmers Union
and the coalition collected over
600 signed letters addressed to
South Dakota’s congressional
delegation urging their support
of a farm bill and asking their
help in talking with their col-
leagues in Congress about the
importance of passing the bill be-
fore the end of the month. Farm-
ers Union will present the letters
to Rep. Kristi Noem and Sens.
John Thune and Tim Johnson.
“Along with presenting the
letters to our congressional dele-
gation, throughout our time in
Washington we’ll be making our
case to many of the urban law-
makers from across the country
who don’t know much about
rural America,” Sombke said.
“They need to know how impor-
tant this bill is to all Americans,
not just farmers and ranchers.”
The National Farmers Union
Fly-In will be held Sept. 9-11.
Farmers Union members from
across the country will visit the
office of every member of Con-
gress over the three day event.
They will also meet with officials
from the United States Depart-
ment of Agriculture and White
House staff.
South Dakota farmers and ranchers head to Washington to push for farm bill
September is National
Preparedness Month
While many families across
South Dakota have begun taking
the necessary steps to welcome
fall and winter, most of these de-
cisions probably revolve around
kickoff times and sporting
events. Another important as-
pect about planning for the up-
coming seasons is our state’s
unpredictable weather. As ex-
cited as we may be for halftime
performances and cross country
meets, it’s more than likely that
Mother Nature may cancel more
than a few of our upcoming
games and activities.
As South Dakotans, we have
all come to accept our state’s
ever-changing weather as part of
its charm. From spring blizzards
to fall freezes and extreme heat
to frigid cold, the Great Plains is
home to some of nature’s most
fascinating and dangerous
weather events. After living in
South Dakota my entire life, it’s
hardly surprising when we find
ourselves revving up the snow
blower in May or trick-or-
treating in snow suits in October.
I believe it’s important for all
of us to take the time to prepare
and educate friends and family
on the possible dangers we may
face due to weather. September
is FEMA’s National Prepared-
ness Month, which aims to edu-
cate all Americans and help
prepare families for any type of
emergency. Although prepared-
ness is highlighted this month,
it’s important to remember that
preparedness needs to be part of
our daily lives.
It’s possible that your family
may not be together when a dis-
aster strikes, so make a plan to
figure out how everyone will get
to a safe place and how you will
contact one another. Make sure
to also figure out emergency
plans at work, school and other
locations where your family
spends time. There are many ef-
fective resources to help your
family prepare for severe
weather and emergencies, in-
cluding the South Dakota De-
partment of Public Safety and
your local emergency manager.
Take time this month to build
an emergency preparedness plan
if you don’t already have one and
then go over and practice your
plan with your loved ones. For
more information about how to
make an emergency plan and
ways to stay informed in your
community, visit
www.Ready.gov for more infor-
mation.

The Longhorns traveled to
Buffalo on the afternoon of Fri-
day, August 30th, in anticipation
of a hard-fought battle with their
longtime rivals. The annual
Faith/Harding County football
game was played the first game
of the regular season, unlike
past years. Breaking the 26 year
losing streak, your Faith Long-
horns brought home a 26-14 vic-
tory over the Ranchers.
When asked for his thoughts
on the game, assistant coach
Travis Grueb said, “I believe we
only saw a fragment of this
team’s potential. We played
okay, but there’s obviously areas
that need work. This team is ca-
pable of great things, but we
have to bring it every game and
every practice, so hopefully we
can reach our full potential by
the end of the season. I think our
ability to run the football be-
tween the lineman running up
the field, and getting our backs
in the right spots were two
things we did well, and that
made a huge impact on the
game. There’s areas we need to
improve on also, like, for exam-
ple, pass coverage. We just need
to figure out a system that will
work for the players and perfect
it.”
After speaking to a couple of
the players, it is evident that the
team is not satisfied. Blaze Mc-
Murtry went so far as to say, “It
was a little upsetting; we could
have beat them by way more
than we did.” Shane Lutz added,
“Everyone was looking forward
to that particular game and it re-
ally gives us a solid start to the
season. We did a pretty good job
putting a stop to their running
game and in contrast, we ran the
ball up the middle very well.”
Shane also agreed with Travis,
that pass protection is some-
thing that has to be worked on.
There were not many return-
ing starters from last year for ei-
ther team, but that didn’t seem
to slow down either squad. Sen-
ior Clay Bernstein led all Long-
horns with 19 tackles, while
juniors Chance Escott, Shane
Lutz, and Chaney Keffeler each
added 8 tackles to the statbook.
Other notable stats include one
interception by Gereth Bushong,
Wylee Nelson had one fumble re-
covery in the end zone that re-
sulted in a touchdown for the
Longhorns, and two touchdowns
Longhorns open season with a win
By Shali Sheridan
by Clay Bernstein.
If you were at practice Tues-
day afternoon, the first practice
after Friday night’s game, you
would never guess that a game
of any significance had been
played just days before. There
was only more work to be done,
more questions to answer, and
more problems to be fixed. This
is the mindset that the Long-
horns want to keep for every
game the rest of the season.
As exciting as the first week of
high school football was for the
Runners start season in Mobridge
By Bonnie Lutz and Ellen Johnson
Longhorns, they are looking for-
ward to Friday, September 6th,
when they match up against the
Bison Cardinals, in Bison. It’s al-
ways tough to beat a team on
their own field, so we’ll see how
the boys fare next week. Hope to
see you there!
Congratulations to Bailey
Deuter who was said to be the
person who ran the best, consid-
ering he improved on his time by
4 minutes from last year.
Jacob said that he thought for
the first meet it went pretty
good, and he ran good. He also
said he could improve in his run,
because he wasn’t in as good of
shape compared to what he will
be in toward the end of the sea-
son.

Why a Farm Bill
extension won’t work
In just a few days, Congress
will come back to Washington,
D.C. and Rural America is count-
ing on passage of a comprehen-
sive, multiyear Food, Farm and
Jobs Bill as soon as possible.
In January, Congress ex-
tended some of the 2008 Farm
Bill programs for nine months.
This didn’t include important
disaster assistance programs for
farmers and ranchers. On Sep-
tember 30, many of these pro-
grams will expire, leaving
producers and rural communi-
ties without a wide variety of
Farm Bill programs.
While Congress has already
extended these programs once,
another extension of current law
isn’t common sense and it won’t
solve this challenge.
An extension won’t provide
the certainty that has for so long
been a cornerstone of the Farm
Bill. It would deny farmers and
ranchers the ability to plan their
operation around a predictable,
long-term farm safety net. For
rural communities, it would pro-
vide little certainty with regard
to economic development pro-
grams. It would set no long-term
standards for conservation or re-
newable energy programs.
And failure to pass a compre-
hensive Food, Farm and Jobs
Bill would do nothing to solve
the Brazil cotton trade dispute.
Left unresolved, this situation
threatens producers and small
businesses in America with hun-
dreds of millions of dollars annu-
ally in tariff penalties against
U.S. agriculture products and
other American-made goods.
All of this uncertainty would
diminish the positive impacts
that Farm Bill programs have in
rural America. Another exten-
sion would not accomplish the
many important goals that
would be achieved through pas-
sage of a comprehensive, long-
term bill. In many respects, it
would simply reward failure on
the part of Congress.
However, Congress has the
opportunity to tackle this chal-
lenge and get a comprehensive
bill done for rural America. A
multi-year Food, Farm and Jobs
Bill would lend the certainty and
predictability that producers and
rural communities deserve. It
would put our farmers and
ranchers in a position to con-
tinue a period of strong growth
and growing exports, while pro-
viding a leg up for rural commu-
nities and working families.
Rural America is counting on
Congress to get their job done as
soon as possible on a new Food,
Farm and Jobs Bill – not another
extension.
Note: This week, Secretary
Vilsack helped launch a new so-
cial media campaign calling on
Americans to share their stories
about Farm Bill programs that
are important in their communi-
ties. You can send stories on so-
cial media about how the Farm
Bill affects your community
using the hashtag #MyFarmBill.

IT’S TIME TO CHECK yOUR TREES
TO ENSURE SURVIVAL
We tend from time to time to forget that the little trees we
planted a few years ago have all grown up and still need some
gentle loving care in the years that proceed. If you planted trees
in the past few years you need to check your trees and fabric.
Make sure that 85% of your shelterbent or windbreak is still sur-
viving. Also check your weed barrier. Make sure that the silt in
the fabric is not girdling or damaging the tree. Enlarge the cut
in the fabric if needed to promote new growth. Make sure your
trees have adegquate moisture as well. Also if you are think-
ing of planting trees in 2014 now is the time to plan. Last
minute plans are always welcome, but we prefer to be able to
plant the trees YOU want that are appropriate for your site. If
you have any questions or want to know what programs are
available, please feel free to stop by the office or give Tri-
County Conservation a call at 967-2561.

The Game, Fish and Parks
Department has been monitor-
ing die-offs of white-tailed deer
in northwestern South Dakota,
centered in northern Perkins
County, and will now reduce the
number of licenses available in
the affected area.
The deer die-offs have been
linked to Epizootic Hemorrhagic
Disease (EHD), which also
caused deer die-offs early last
fall in many parts of the state.
GFP is taking action to adjust
the number of deer hunting li-
censes available in the affected
area, and as a result 41 unsold
two-tag antlerless white-tailed
deer licenses will be eliminated
from Perkins County north of
South Dakota Highway 20 is-
sued as West River Deer hunting
unit 53A-19.
“Our staff have been keeping
a close watch for loss of deer, and
as reports have come in from
landowners and concerned citi-
zens we have focused our efforts
in northern Perkins County,”
Tom Kirschenmann, Chief of
Wildlife for GFP said. “Eliminat-
ing these unsold licenses is an
appropriate response based on
the current information and we
will continue to monitor the area
and situation.”
Kirschenmann said GFP will
continue to conduct ground sur-
veillance and gather reports
from the public.
EHD is common in white-
tailed deer and is typically de-
tected in late summer or early
fall. The virus is spread by a bit-
ing midge and causes extensive
internal hemorrhaging. Many
deer exhibit no clinical signs and
appear perfectly healthy, while
others may have symptoms such
as respiratory distress, fever,
and swelling of the tongue. With
highly virulent strains of the
virus, deer can be dead within 1-
3 days. Affected deer are often
found near low lying areas or
near water like a river or a pond.
This is due to the deer attempt-
ing to go to the water to combat
the high fever.
The Department asks individ-
uals who see sick deer or find
dead deer to contact their local
conservation officer or call the
Pierre office at 605-773-5913.
EHD is not infectious to hu-
mans.

September 4, 2013
Honorable Judge Eckrich
Fourth Circuit Court SD Unified Judicial
System
1425 Sherman Street
PO Box 939
Sturgis, SD 57785
Dear Judge Eckrich:
Our facilities director, Kevin Forrester,
has forwarded your email regarding our
offer to improve courtroom three in the
lower level of the courthouse. First, in the
future, we invite you to communicate di-
rectly with the commission regarding on-
going usage of rooms in the courthouse
and capital improvements. Mr. Forrester
is your contact for any questions or com-
ments you have on everyday mainte-
nance of the building. Next year, Mr.
Forrester will also be your contact re-
garding scheduling during construction
of the two-story annex housing the new
elevator and ADA-compliant restrooms.
Regarding the annex: Yesterday, the
commission did approve construction of
the annex for 2014. Design work will
commence soon. As with any major con-
struction project, there will be noise and
some disruption in use of the building.
However, since the construction is an
annex to the existing building, this should
be minimal.
Regarding the improvements to
courtroom three: We directed Mr. For-
rester to complete improvements to it
after you and Judge Johnson expressed
a need for a larger, more secure court-
room in the building. We have conferred
with Mr. Forrester on the cost of meeting
all the needs you listed in your email
about the courtroom, and have deter-
mined that we can provide a courtroom
with security and wiring which is as
good, or better than, what currently ex-
ists in courtroom one right above it. We
can also provide improved furnishings
and wall treatments.
Along with the need you have ex-
pressed for an additional large court-
room, we see additional value in making
these improvements because at some
time in the future we will be making im-
provements to courtroom one to mitigate
the noise and ADA issues you have com-
plained of in that room. Having a func-
tional courtroom three during that project
will be a benefit for everyone.
According to your email, you will not
use courtroom three after we improve it,
until and unless we remodel the entire
building. If you still need an additional,
secure, large courtroom, as you've said
previously, that's disappointing. The cost
of such a project is over $7 million. The
county doesn't have $7 million to spend
on such a project now, and won't have
$7 million in the foreseeable future. Such
a project would give building occupants
nearly three times the space they occu-
pied just a few years ago. Even if the
county had the $7 million at hand, it
would not be responsible to expend that
large a sum upgrading such a large
amount of space.
Perhaps you have changed your
mind about the need for another large
courtroom in the building. Please let us
know whether or not this need has
changed and whether or not you will use
courtroom three if we provide the im-
provements you have already specified.
Please let us know if there is some other
deficiency with courtroom three that you
have not already identified.
Best Regards,
Meade County Board of County
Commissioners

September 4, 2013
Dear Meade County Volunteer Fire
Departments:
The Meade County Commission has
approved $20,000 for distribution to the
Meade County Association of Volunteer
Fire Departments. Unlike prior years, in
which only part of the budgeted money
was disbursed as vouchers for approved
expenses were submitted, the county
will distribute all these funds to the asso-
ciation, with no restrictions on how the
money may be used, and no require-
ment to submit vouchers. We will break
the $20,000 into two payments, one in
the first half of the year and one in the
second half.
At our budget hearings this year,
which some of you attended, the Com-
mission agreed that it is our intent to end
this kind of direct, on-going payment to
the association or to individual fire de-
partments; and we wanted you to know
that ahead of time so you could consider
alternatives to this kind of funding.
This does not mean that any commis-
sioner believes the county has no obli-
gation to help you financially or with
other county resources in the event of a
disastrously large fire or an emergency.
We are aware that fire-fighting expenses
vary greatly from year to year. If we have
a year sometime in the future in which
any fire department experiences excep-
tional expenses or equipment loss, the
county maintains a large emergency/dis-
aster fund which we can tap to help off-
set those kinds of losses. We want to
extend, ahead of time, to every fire de-
partment in the county, an invitation to
approach us for help in the event of a
disaster or emergency.
In the past, such help has consisted
of assistance in purchasing a MaxTrax
snow rescue vehicle for the Sturgis Fire
Department, use of county motor
graders in fighting fires, county payment
for slurry bombing, land for construction
of a fire hall, and donation of surplus
county vehicles. We will still provide all
those kinds of assistance on a case-by-
case basis. During an emergency, all
that will be required to authorize the use
of county equipment and employees or
county payment for dispatch of slurry
bombers is the verbal permission of our
chair, or if the chair cannot be contacted,
the vice-chair.
We appreciate how conservative all
of you have always been in requesting
county help and remain impressed with
how much you accomplish with so little
funding. That's one of the reasons we're
reminding you that we'll always want to
help you in the event of a disaster or
emergency or special need. One of the
purposes of our disaster/emergency
fund is that every fire department in the
county remains ready for the next big
fire. When we call it "our disaster/emer-
gency fund", we mean that it belongs to
county taxpayers, not the county com-
mission or county government.
During our budget discussion with
you, some of you said you would be
seeking to organize taxing districts for
your departments. The Meade County
Commission takes no position on that
issue. Our future help to you does not
depend, in any way, on whether taxing
districts are formed. We recognize that
an increasing amount of land in our
county is owned by individuals who do
not live in the county and who do not
support your work through donations of
labor or money and that a tax levy can
help offset that problem. However, we're
also proud of the fact some of our de-
partments have accomplished so much
without a tax levy. It's a local decision,
and your taxpayers do not need any ad-
vice from the county commission as they
make their decisions.
In the event any of you do propose to
form any taxing districts, we want to re-
mind you that the county has maintained
a policy of helping with the legal ex-
penses of forming local taxing districts.
For road districts of a certain size or
larger, we have defrayed up to $2,000 in
legal expenses. For you, we offer to as-
sist in all the legal expenses. Addition-
ally, the county will continue to cover the
worker’s compensation expenses.
Sincerely,
Meade County Board of County Com-
missioners
