It’s been a long time since
there’s been a building raising of
any kind in our area, but the
Maurine community did just
that last week. Normally you
hear of a barn raising, but this
time it was a church raising.
Following the sudden death of
Della Rae Mickelson, and her
wish to have her funeral service
in the new Prairie Home
Church, friends and neighbors of
the Mickelsons went to work last
Monday to make this happen.
Monday morning, September
9th, about 15-20 friends and
neighbors in the community
gathered with their hammers,
saws, staple guns, etc. and went
to work laying the floor and get-
ting the north wall up. Work con-
tinued Tuesday and Wednesday
to get the rest of the walls up
and the exterior walls covered.
The Lord blessed them with
perfect weather for the construc-
tion process. Winds were fairly
calm on Thursday when the 13’
high by 50’ long rafters were put
in place. There were about 40
workers on hand Thursday and
Friday, coming from as far as
Yankton and Wyoming, to get
the work done to enclose the
building and get the sheetrock
up on the interior walls, and
place a temporary walkway.
The new 50’x100’ church is
one level, with handicap accessi-
bility. The classrooms are on the
east end of the building with the
sanctuary facing the west. Work
will continue on the building for
several weeks or months yet, but
it was complete enough by Sat-
urday.
There were no windows or
doors, but the roof was on to pro-
vide shelter for the over 300 ex-
pected family members, friends,
neighbors and acquaintances to
say their goodbyes to Della Rae.
She was blessed to have such
great friends and neighbors to
fulfill her wish. She touched a lot
of lives in her lifetime, giving of
her time each summer with the
youth at the Cedar Canyon Bible
Camp.

Della Rae Mickelson, 64,
Faith, went to be with the Lord
on September 6, 2013, at Santa
Barbara Cottage Hospital in
Santa Barbara, CA.
A celebration of her life was
held at 10:00 am on Saturday,
September 14, 2013, at the new
Prairie Home Church in Mau-
rine with Pastor Roger Monson
and Pastor Dave Grotzke offici-
ating. Burial will follow at the
Monument Hill Cemetery.
Della was born April 29, 1949
in Belle Fourche, SD, the first of
2 children to Shirley and Erma
(Gamble) Miller. Her parents
welcomed her into their little
sheep wagon home by pulling
out the big storage drawer under
the bed for a crib. 
She grew up with her sister
Reta Fae on the family ranch
near Mud Butte, enjoying the
simple country way of life, and
eventually married and raised
her own family just a few miles
from there.
With her family, she attended
Prairie Home Church and Sun-
day school. Very early in life,
Della Rae accepted Christ as her
personal Savior. She was one of
the first campers to be blessed by
Cedar Canyon Bible Camp. She
later spent many summers as a
counselor there, and in the most
recent years she still devoted
much of her time to the camp as
treasurer, registrar, and just all
around helper.
Della Rae attended grade
school at one-room schools, first
the Red Top School, just west of
Maurine, and then finishing at
the Mud Butte School.
For high school, she realized a
childhood dream by attending
Sunshine Bible Academy, near
Miller, SD. After graduating in
1967, she still held the school
very close to her heart and re-
turned again and again. 
Della Rae attended her first
year of college in Oklahoma City,
transferring the next year to
SDSU in Brookings, SD where
she received her Bachelor of Sci-
ence Degree in Secondary Edu-
cation in 1971.
All throughout her school
years, Della Rae would return
home to spend her summers hay-
ing and helping with Bible
schools and camp.
After college, she pursued her
chosen career at her chosen
place, teaching high school
mathematics back at Sunshine
Bible Academy.
Music was always important
to Della Rae.  She enjoyed
singing with her grandmother as
a child.  Her mother started
teaching her piano very early
and she continued blessing peo-
ple with her musical talents
throughout her life.  She enjoyed
singing with her husband and
family and spent time teaching
music to her children when they
were young.  She enjoyed being
one of the pianists for the church
and also accompanying the local
quartet.
Della Rae loved to sew and
knit, and made many individual-
ized gifts for family and friends.
Bookkeeping was another of her
passions.  She prepared income
tax for many years and most re-
cently kept books for Country
Coffees in Union Center. 
On Aug. 17, 1974 Della Rae
married the love of her life, her
longtime friend, Sam Mickel-
son. Together they first worked
and traveled for SBA, later set-
tling at their home along Cedar
Canyon. Along with raising
sheep, cattle, and most recently
buffalo, they raised a family of
three boys and three girls, who
were their pride and joy. Their
blessings increased as each
grandchild arrived. From about
the early to mid eighty’s Della
Rae tried to publish a weekly
newsletter that was shared with
family and friends. This became
what we know now as “Mickel-
son Moments”.  Even when her
family became scattered she was
trying to keep them all con-
nected and informed.
Grateful for having shared
her life are her husband of 39
years , Sam, and six children and
their families, Travis and Haley
Mickelson, and children Natalie,
Tarrence, and MaKeltie of Mud
Butte, SD; Fran Mickelson of
Union Center, SD; Tim and
Courtney Mickelson and chil-
dren Toby, Soleil, Ciera, and
Ruby, of rural Faith (Maurine),
SD; Tyler and Jennifer Mickel-
son and son Will of Mandan, ND;
Faye Lynn and Levi Stoddard
and children Reece, Sidney, and
Paisley of Garrison, ND; and Fe-
licia and Chris Cammack of
Union Center, SD; her father
Shirley Miller of Mud Butte; her
sister Reta Fae and Ken Kelly of
Ada, KS and many nieces and
nephews.
Della Rae lost her fight with
cancer and went to be with the
Lord she loved, joining her
mother Erma Miller, two infant
sons and many family and
friends and neighbors who have
preceded her in death.
Memorials have been estab-
lished to the New Prairie Home
Church and the Cedar Canyon
Bible Camp.
Condolences may be sent to
the family at www.kinkadefu-
nerals.com.

Obituary
At the request of the South
Dakota Department of Veterans
Affairs, Gov. Dennis Daugaard
has proclaimed Friday, Sept. 20,
2013, as “POW/MIA Recognition
Day,” calling on all South
Dakotans to honor those men
and women who fought bravely
for our freedoms.
“While we are grateful to all of
those who have served our na-
tion, the 20th of September is a
day designated to remember and
recognize the sacrifices endured
by those members of the Armed
Forces of the United States who
were held as prisoners of war or
remain missing in action,” the
Governor said. “The state of
South Dakota continues to sup-
port efforts to account for every
service member classified as
Missing in Action.”
The Governor encourages all
South Dakotans to set aside time
on Sept. 20 to honor the
POW/MIAs who fought to pro-
tect our freedoms and lost theirs,
as well as remember those en-
gaged in today's struggle to
guard our way of life for future
generations.
“In their service to our coun-
try, former prisoners of war and
those missing in action, have
sacrificed mightily to maintain
the promise of liberty that we
hold dear,” added Larry Zimmer-
man, Secretary of the South
Dakota Department of Veterans
Affairs. “Sept. 20 affords us a
great opportunity to reaffirm our
vow to never forget the courage
of our nation’s staunchest de-
fenders – our former POWs and
MIAs.”

South Dakota’s sound
pension fund
As we enter the fall, it is easy
to remember why we are so
proud of South Dakota. We have
beautiful landscapes and unpar-
alleled outdoor recreation. Our
farmers and ranchers produce
commodities that feed and fuel
the world. And we have great
schools where dedicated teachers
and involved parents help our
students achieve high levels of
success.
South Dakotans can be proud
for another reason that is not so
well-known:  the strength of our
state’s retirement pension sys-
tem. Earlier this month, I at-
tended a meeting of the South
Dakota Retirement System
Board of Trustees. The Trustees
manage the state retirement sys-
tem for nearly all public employ-
ees, including teachers, law
enforcement and many other
city, county, school and state
workers.
In recent years, the Trustees
have faced serious challenges:
an unprecedented global reces-
sion that caused significant mar-
ket losses; the possible rescission
of benefit increases; and dra-
matic changes in accounting
rules and standards for operat-
ing a pension plan.
The Trustees responded with
courage and made difficult
changes. They constrained cost
of living adjustments, even after
a lawsuit challenged their deci-
sion. It took courage to make
that tough decision and to suc-
cessfully defend it in court. 
The Trustees also made more
conservative projections for the
future, reducing their actuarial
assumptions for future returns
to 7.25 percent and 7.5 percent.
They did this even though they
knew it would make the health
of the pension plan look worse,
and even though the plan’s his-
tory could have justified rosier
projections. 
Many other states continue to
assume higher rates of return,
but in South Dakota we are not
planning for the best-case sce-
nario. Looking at 126 public pen-
sion systems in other states,
there are only 10 that have more
conservative investment return
assumptions than South Dakota.
The other 115 are more opti-
mistic, and many of these are
funds that are in dismal shape –
in states like Illinois, Connecti-
cut, Kentucky and Hawaii.
We should be proud that the
strength of the South Dakota Re-
tirement System is gaining na-
tional attention. Last year,
Barron’s Dow Jones magazine
recognized South Dakota as “The
Best Run State in America,” be-
cause of our state’s very low debt
and well-funded pension status. 
This month, the Trustees took
an action that is almost unheard
of these days. They used their
available funds to extinguish all
unfunded actuarial liabilities.
These were liabilities that were
to be paid down over a 30-year
period. It is as if one bought a
new house on a 30-year mort-
gage, and then paid off the mort-
gage the next year. Almost no
other pension fund in the nation
could do this, and South Dakota
will be stronger for decades to
come because of this wise deci-
sion.
One reason for the strength of
our pension fund is the strong
performance of the South
Dakota Investment Council.
This year, the Investment Coun-
cil outperformed their invest-
ment benchmark by the widest
margin since 1988. An article in
Institutional Investor magazine
said that the South Dakota In-
vestment Council should be
awarded “this year’s national
championship” as the best-per-
forming fund in the nation.
South Dakotans believe in
frugality, and in sound steward-
ship of funds. We owe a debt of
gratitude to the South Dakota
Retirement System Board of
Trustees, the South Dakota In-
vestment Council and their
staffs for their conservative man-
agement. Together these South
Dakotans have made us the best
in America.

Enjoyed those 70s and 80s
last week, and the nights cooled
down nicely too. The weekend re-
ally cooled down with highs in
the 60s and 70s. It was warm the
early part of this week, but is
supposed to cool down for the
rest of the week. Fall is defi-
nitely around the corner.
We received an e-mail from
Kevin Jensen Monday afternoon
that Tillie Nesland spent a cou-
ple days in the Rapid City Re-
gional Hospital.
Dave and Eldora Fischbach
drove to Aberdeen on Saturday
via Watertown. They spent part
of Saturday and Sunday with
son Nathan and Anita and fam-
ily, then went on to Aberdeen so
Dave could attend a meeting.
They returned home Tuesday.
Marge Hoffman called last
week to report that her great
grandson, Josh Sackmann of
Lemmon, was chosen Homecom-
ing King there. She was a pretty
groud great grandma!
Students will have an early
dismissal, 1:00, this Thursday
for Parent-Teacher Conferences.
Congratulations to the boys
football team on their 24-20 win
over Sully Buttes Friday night.
They don’t have another game

The 6-8th grade and JV foot-
ball teams are also busy. They
hosted Dupree this past Monday.
The 6-8th graders will be playing
in a jamboree at Mobridge this
Saturday and will be playing at
Newell next Monday. The JV
will be hosting Timber Lake on
Monday.
The cross country runners
had a meet in Wall on Satuurday
and another at Gettysburg this
Saturday. They improve with
each meet.
The volleyball girls have been
very busy too. They had games
last Tuesday, Thursday and a
tournament on Saturday. This
week they host Wall on Thurs-
day night and travel to Kadoka
for games on Saturday. They will
be hosting Philip next Tuesday
night.
The jr. high volleyball girls
will be playing at Newell next
Monday.
Homecoming is unusually late
this year. It’s usually in Septem-
ber, but this year it’s not until
October. The football game will
be October 11th, with the alumni
banquet on the 12th. Make sure
to mark your calendars.
Freshmen Impact will be held
next Wednesday at the Fait
Community Center. There will
be four other schools here partic-
ipating in this program. This is a
great program for all freshmen.
Too bad it can’t include upper
classmen. The public is welcome
to go watch.
I sure wish more of you would
share your news with our read-
ers. Those away from here enjoy
reading what everyone is doing.
Howard and I and Glenn,
Margaret and Dan Fogelman
and all were in Faith Monday
with vehicles  to see the wind-
shield chip repair man.  Hope
that is the last time for awhile.
Ed Miller called on Fogelmans
on Monday forenoon.
John Heidler was also in
Faith to take open heifers into
the sale and visit with his mom.
Marlin and Ethel Ingalls and
daughters Sheryl Lesmeister
and Debbie Delbridge had left on
Sunday to go to Rochester, MN
for Marlin and Ethel's checkups.
Sounded like they both passed
their tests and returned home on
Tuesday.
I went to Union Center on
Tuesday for an appointment and
while gone the men got word of
the shop fire that was at Ed and
Karen Miller’s place.  So sorry
that they lost the shop and sev-
eral pieces of equipment.  Nei-
ther Ed or Karen were at home
when it started.
Faye Fees was in Faith on
Tuesday on business and was
also the day that Bernice Lem-
mel took their pickup into Rick's
Auto for a fuel tank cleaning.
John and Carmen Heidler
went over to Ed and Karen
Millers on Wednesday to attend
Karen's birthday party that was
put on by their granddaughter,
McKenzie Miller. 
Wednesday afternoon
Dwayne Vig flew to Rapid City
and picked up his sister Rose
Tysdal from Florida. They came
to Faith in time for supper before
Bible Study.
Rod Ingalls and I went into
Faith on Thursday to donate
blood and do a little other busi-
ness.
Thursday morning, JT and
Zona Vig loaded a truck full of
sand from Fox Ridge (compli-
ments of Paul Delbridge) for a
kid's sand pile at the Opal Hall
in preparation for the Vig Re-
union on Saturday.  They also
mowed, used the weed eater,
cleaned bathrooms and dusted
the hall since other Hall Board
members were helping to build
on the new Prairie Home church
building. Dwayne brought a load
of tables. Friday morning, Ryan
Vig finished the mowing and JT
helped load chairs going up to
Prairie Home for Della Rae
Mickelson's funeral services that
would be on Saturday forenoon.
That afternoon Cheryl Vig and
Zona brought more tables and
chairs and set up for the reunion.
Carmen Heidler went to Faith
early Thursday and spent the
day with granddaughters.
David Fees helped Diane Fees
get the bulls out of the cattle and
moving the cows to fresh pasture
on Friday.  Walter is still helping
down at Jesse Fees's near Mar-
cus.  Jake Fees and Nikki and
Jason Fees came from Mobridge
to the Walter Fees place to work
at farming chores.
Another fire was started on
Friday near the home of Jack
and Kay Overlands.  It was
caused by electrical problems on
the REA lines. It stayed a small
fire thanks to Jack and Kay and
some helpers.
Later Friday night, Tracy, Au-
rora and Autumn Keffeler from
Gillette arrived at the Dwayne
and Zona home. Dakota Dunn
and her kids Jason, Shannon
and Dillon from Ft. Collins, Co
also came on Friday night to JT
and Kelsey Vig's. Cheyenne Win-
kler and children and Travis,
Chandelle and children plus a 3-
month baby they were taking
care of all came to the Vig Re-
union Saturday afternoon.  They
all stopped at the ranch for more
visiting that evening before
heading home.  Dakota and fam-
ily attended Sunday morning
services in Faith before driving
back to Ft. Collins.
Gwen Miller and friend Barry
came from Canton early Friday
morning to the Fogelman Ranch.
They, along with Marlin Ingalls
and Dan and Glenn Fogelman
loaded up the rest of the items
they wanted to move to their
apartment in Sturgis.  Rod,
Justin and I also went up and
helped them move into Sturgis
and helped unload and put some
items in place. They are now set-
tled in and Dan will remain on
the ranch until November 1
when the new owners take pos-
session. We sure wish them the
best of retirement and enjoy
their nice apartment. Gwen and
Barry left on Sunday morning to
return home.
Most of the country and many
others attended the funeral for
Della Rae Mickelson on Satur-
day morning in the shell of the
new Prairie Home Church build-
ing.  It was a lovely day and a
lovely service. We send our con-
dolences again to Sam and his
family, and her sister Reta Fae
Kelly and her family and her dad
Shirley Miller.
Saturday, Lee Reawasoat
from Rapid City came to the
Spud Lemmel home with a load
of cut and split wood for their
winter needs and had dinner
with them as well. On Sunday,
friend Harold Ball came to visit
and was an overnight guest at
Lemmels.
Sam and Cheryl Cowles went
to Rapid City on Saturday to
pick Emily up from the airport.
Emily had spent several days
visiting and attending a wedding
in Michigan.
Sunday, Justin Lesmeister
and his date, grandma Dorothy
Heidler came out to John and
Carmen Heidlers for dinner and
to rope. Wyatt Schuelke came
over, too.

Fall is very definitely here.
Tonight was downright chilly
after supper. Wasps are out, flies
are trying to get in a warm house
and a few trees have started to
turn a little color. Fall means
time for fall cattle shots and
there seems to be a lot of that
being done around the area.
Last week or the week before
I asked about people named Fos-
soy who we thought had lived in
the area. George Hlavka called
to tell me that they had lived in
the area for a short time. Accord-
ing to George they lived east and
a little north of Dick Richard-
son’s place, now Dean and Joan
Wink’s. I remember being east of
the highway and north of Howes
once with my mom and Sally
Hlavka. It seems that we drove
past the former site of someone’s
place north of Howes, in the pas-
ture where the tower is located
on top the hill. Was that it?
George also told Harold that
Donaldsons lived in that area,
too. Bob Hlavka’s mom, Gladys,
was a Donaldson and her
brother? Kelly was a banker in
Sturgis for many years. During
the early 70’s Faith had a math
teacher whose name was Don-
aldson and he too was a relative
of the ones from that area. Per-
haps some Faith alumni remem-
ber him.
I also asked about feeding a
threshing crew and my sister,
Adele Enright, sent me the fol-
lowing e-mail. Denver is her hus-
band.    
Denver talks about his
Gramma Milliken, the fastest
moving woman in the West,
feeding the threshing crews
freshly butchered fried chicken
every day mostly because it was
the only meat she had along with
whatever was ready in the gar-
den, while doing all her regular
work with no such thing as any-
thing disposable and heading off
to "Club" in her spare time! She
could grab a chicken, wring its
neck, whip it out of its feathers
and have it fried in the time it
takes the rest of us to read the
directions on the stuff that's
frozen and needs to be put in the
oven. I am guessing the men sat
wherever they could drop and
ate out of every type of container
that could be found. I also think
that there probably wasn't much
time wasted on washing and re-
washing either chickens or veg-
etables! Water was about as
hard to come by as time. John
Enright, Denver's great-uncle,
once told us of working for some
people where they served up
what he called "them skinny lit-
tle Texas hens" and he said you
would belch pinfeathers for days
after you ate!  I'm guessing by
the time dinner (not lunch)
rolled around, hungry people
would eat about anything and
find it good if it filled you up! The
women who made this country
what it is today didn't get much
credit for how hard they worked
and that includes our Mom. The
world may have hungry and poor
people in it but there are also
people who have never experi-
enced living without electricity
and plumbing. I was going to say
"running water" but as the joke
goes, we had that - we took turns
running after a bucket of water
'til we went uptown and got that
pump in the house at Timber
Lake!  Love Adele
As many of you know Denver
is fighting cancer and is back in
the Aberdeen Hospital. Corinna
Thompson drove to Aberdeen
and back Sunday to visit them.
Since I have to send my news
Sunday night this missed last
week’s column. Thanks to all

Friday, Jim and Vonnie O'Dea
picked up Marvin and Phyllis
Coleman and went to Chadron to
take Amy Deichert hay for her
horses. Marvin also invested in a
new 4 wheeler. On the way back
they met 3 of Jim and Phyllis's
brothers who live near Hot
Springs. Gene, Jerry, and
Richard were at a coffee shop
and all got in some good visiting
Sunday, Jim and Vonnie met
Jim's sister and husband, Tom
and Rosella O'Bryan, at Faith
and all went to the horse sale.
O'Bryans are from Minnesota.
Both men came home with
horses. O'Bryans spent Sunday
night and Monday with O'Deas.
The weekend brought with it
cooler temperatures than we'd
been experiencing the previous
week. For college students living
in unconditioned dorm rooms it
had to be a relief. We received a
short sprinkle on Saturday after-
noon, but nothing measurable.
Larry and I attended the
BHSU RSVP 2013 Volunteer
Recognition Luncheon on Friday
at Deadwood Gulch in Dead-
wood. Gordy Pratt was the enter-
tainment with his humor and
amazing guitar playing. Vern
and Rosalie Simons were among
the many volunteers. It was a
time to show appreciation and
the importance of volunteers in
our community that is made up
of retired seniors. The program
currently has over 450 volunteer
members that serve over 100
western South Dakota nonprof-
its. Without these volunteers,
some of these organizations
would cease to exist.
This past week, a church rais-
ing project took place at the new
Prairie Home Church location
near Maurine. Volunteers
pressed hard to have the shell of
the 50' x 100' foot building up for
the funeral service on Saturday.
Neighbors came together to work
on the church and it was a bless-
ing to many, especially the Sam
Mickelson family. The life of
Della Rae Mickelson was re-
membered and honored on Sat-
urday, September 14 at the
Prairie Home Church at 10:00
am. Pastors Roger Monson and
Dave Grotske officiated the serv-
ice. Special music was presented
by Shilo Hewitt, Travis and
Tyler Mickelson as well as the
Grandsons of the Pioneer Quar-
tet, and the Mickelson Family
singing "The Love of God".
Born in Belle Fourche on
April 29, 1949, Della Rae (Miller)
grew up enjoying the simple
country life and was able to con-
tinue that life as she and hus-
band, Sam, raised their children
at their home along Cedar
Canyon. Della Rae loved to sew
and knit and made many special
gifts for friends and family.
Bookkeeping was another of her
passions. She devoted much of
her time to counseling, and then
administrating at Cedar Canyon
Bible Camp. Due to her dedica-
tion to the camp, many young
people grew to know the Lord be-
cause of their attendance there.
Della Rae will always be remem-
bered as the first person we saw
when bringing our children to
camp each summer. We knew
when we picked them up at the
end of the week, they would be
closer in their walk with the
Lord. Della Rae's desire to see
young and old come to know the
Lord will be dearly missed by all
who knew her. Our sincere con-
dolences go out to Sam, her hus-
band of 39 years, and six
children: Travis, Fran, Tim,
Tyler, Faye Lynn, and Felicia
and their families.
Nellie's Fall Fling will be tak-
ing place on Saturday, Septem-
ber 28. It will start with a pie
social with the auction at 6:00
pm. Proceeds will go to the En-
ning Fire Department and Rural
Meade Ambulance Service. Fea-
tured on the poster is Rocky Mt.
Oysters and BBQ Beef & Calico
Beans. This will take place at
Nellie's Saloon in downtown En-
ning, SD.
The fire hall at Union Center
is looking closer to completion
each day.
Another building project that
is in progress in Central Meade
County is the new home of Kasey
and Jenny (Schnell) Spring.
They are building a beautiful
home east of the Atall School.
They hope to have their home
completed before Christmas.
Lynn, Ashlyn, and Jerad Si-
mons took part in a 3.5 K Mud
Run at Buffalo Chip on Satur-
day. Ashlyn came in first in her
heat. They were running for the
treatment of diabetes. Lynn's
two sisters took part as well and
they won best costume award.
They all jumped in the water
when they were finished to clean
off any extra mud.
Larry and I made a trip to and
from Redfield on Sunday for a

Shortly after he took his first
steps, Greg Voller, 14, was tag-
ging along with his dad on hunt-
ing trips. He received a BB gun
at 7 and after passing the
Hunters Safety course he was
hunting beside his dad, Alan.
On Sept. 7 Greg joined more
than 50 other area youth who
put their outdoor sports talents
to the test during the Game,
Fish & Parks Shadehill Outdoor
Youth Challenge held at the
Shadehill Reservoir near Lem-
mon, S.D.
"I got to get outside, be with
friends and learned some gun
safety and shoot/don't shoot sce-
narios," said Greg, who was the
age division winner receiving a
Rossi Trifecta Youth Shotgun as
a prize.
In its first year, the Shadehill
Outdoor Youth Challenge was
designed to provide youth with
fun challenges, introduce them
to outdoor sports as well as rein-
force hunter safety measures.
The challenge included age ap-
propriate competitions in shoot-
ing, casting, archery, wildlife
and track identification and a re-
alistic shoot/don't shoot course.
"This is a way to get youth in-
volved in the outdoors and for
those who are outdoor enthusi-
asts, it gave them an opportunity
to see how their skills compared
to other youth their age," said
Keith Mutschler, the Game, Fish
& Parks (GFP) Conservation Of-
ficer in Lemmon who organized
the event with the help of his
wife, Anne and several local
sponsors.
Volunteers from sportsmen's
organizations were in charge of
each challenge and awarded
youth points based on the skill
they demonstrated. After the
youth completed the challenge
course, their points were tallied
and prizes were awarded.
For novice hunter Amanda
Riley, 14, the challenge gave her
hands-on practice with a .22 rim-
fire rifle and .223 high powered
rifle. "I've only gone hunting
twice and used a 20 gauge shot-
gun, so this was a cool way to
learn how to shoot new types of
guns. I'd never shot a rifle before
this," said the Lemmon High
School freshman.
Although her classmate, Beth
Tennant, 13, has more experi-
ence hunting, she said the chal-
lenge gave her with an
opportunity to improve her form.
"The volunteers showed me what
I was doing wrong and showed
me how to hold my gun to im-
prove my aim. I like hunting
with my dad and mom. I think
it's the excitement that I feel
when I find a deer. I shot my
first deer when I was 11 - right
after passing the hunter's safety
course," said Tennant, adding
that she learned a lot from the
shoot/don't shoot course.
The shoot/don't shoot course
was set up to test youth's aware-
ness of their surroundings in re-
alistic hunting scenarios.
"This challenge was impor-
tant from a safety standpoint.
When you're hunting you need to
be able to make split second de-
cisions on whether to shoot or
not to shoot," Mutschler said.
One test scenario set up
within the shoot/don't shoot
course was a 3-D target with an
antelope buck against a good
backdrop - however, about 20
yards away sat a mannequin in
camouflage and an orange hat.
GF&P Shadehill Outdoor Challenge tests hunting skills & reinforces safety
By Lura Roti for South Dakota Game, Fish & Parks
The mannequin was sitting in
some brush, yet the orange hat
was clearly visible.
"Most of the youth observed
the fact that there was nothing
between them and the target,
but they missed the orange cap.
This was a good reminder to
them on how accidents happen,"
Mutschler said.
It was hands-on reminders
like this one that impressed Del
Newman, an event volunteer
and a local Hunter's Safety In-
structor. "It's important that
when youth experience the out-
doors, they do it in a very safe
and positive manner. If you
make a mistake with a firearm
the consequences can be deadly,"
Newman said. "This challenge
also gave youth hands-on oppor-
tunities to get outdoors and
learn about what activities are
available to them."
The Shadehill Outdoor Chal-
lenge is one of several "Step Out-
side" events local GF&P Conser-
vation Officers host throughout
the state to introduce youth to
outdoor activities and encourage
them to spend more time out-
doors, explained Mike Kintigh,
Regional GF&P Supervisor for
western South Dakota.
"As most parents will confirm,
if we don't provide youth with an
opportunity to get outdoors and
get them interested in outdoor
activities, they are plumb happy
to sit in the house in front of the
TV and video games," Kintigh
said. "Part of Game, Fish &
Parks overall goal is to promote
outdoor activities to consumptive
and non-consumptive users."
In addition to a fun competi-
tion, Kintigh says the shoot/don't
shoot and animal ID challenges
teach youth valuable skills that
will keep both them and the
wildlife safe when they are en-
joying the outdoors. He ex-
plained how all hunters need to
know enough about the wildlife
they are harvesting to abide by
the laws of the license they pur-
chased. The animal ID challenge
tested youth's ability to identify
specific wildlife based on photos,
tracks and pelts.
"Licenses allow you to harvest
a specific animal, sometimes of a
specific sex. If you're going to
hunt, you need to know enough
about wild game so you don't end
up violating the law," Kintigh
said. "For example, a grouse
looks a lot like a female pheasant
so a hunter must be able to
quickly tell the difference when
they fly up."
Gereth Bushong, 16, credits
his dad, Bill, with teaching him
how to identify wildlife.
Bushong's dad is a retired Con-
servation Officer, so the teen
says as long as he can remember
he has spent time outdoors.
"There's a photo of me only a
few weeks old posed with an an-
telope and on a hunting trip with
my dad and one of his friends,"
said the Faith High School jun-
ior. "Whenever I have a chance,
I go hunting or trapping. I enjoy
being outdoors, close to wildlife
and away from technology."
As the senior division winner,
Bushong received an AR223.
Along with the first place prizes
Bushong and Voller received, the
other prizes included; the winner
of the 7 to 11 year-old division a
Mossberg 20 gauge pump shot-
gun. All second place winners re-
ceived a copy of The Total
Outdoorsman Manuel, spon-
sored by Grand River Sports-
men's Club. All third place
winners received an ammunition
box donated by the Friends of
the NRA. Other event sponsors
include; Pheasants Forever,
Sons of the American Legion,
Grand River Archery Club, Mon-
tana Dakota Utilities, Geo's Cor-
ner, Lemmon Trap and Skeet,
Dacotah Bank, Lemmon IGA,
SDSU Extension, Frito Lays and
B and C Plumbing.

The Lady Longhorns had a
volleyball game Thursday, Sep-
tember 5th, against McIntosh.
There were three different
games: “C” (7th and 8th graders)
scoring 25-8 in the first set (us-
them) and 25-14 in the second
set; “B” (junior varsity) scoring
25-16 in the first set and 25-12 in
the second; and “A” (varsity)
scoring 25-23 in the first set, 12-
25 in the second, 18-25 in the
third, 25-18 in the fourth, and
won it 15-13. All teams had a
successful night, winning all of
their matches.
Strengths and weaknesses in-
clude bad serves, but they fought
back after losing two sets. Al-
though the girls came out with
the wins, Coach Ali Grueb says,
“We have a lot to work on. We
have new faces on the varsity
team and it’s going to take a
while to get in sync. We had good
leadership from the seniors in
the 2nd and 3rd matches.” All of
the seniors know what the team
needs to work on to not make
those same mistakes in future
games. Even though the team
had trouble in the second and
third sets, they are very proud of
how they battled back and pulled
out the win.
The leader in kills, serving,
and sets was Shanna Selby.
Leading the blocks was Teagan
Engel and the leader in digs was
Maddy Vance. All the girls
played had a great game but the
one player that stood out was
Michaelah Martin, who led serve
receives.
The Lady Longhorns had
their first home game Tuesday
night against Hettinger. There
were three different games: “C”
scoring 14-25 in the first set, and
8-25 in the second; “B” scoring
24-26 in the first set and 18-25 in
the second; “A” scoring 22-25 in
On Thursday, September
12th, the Lady Longhorns trav-
eled to Lemmon for their third
volleyball game. The scores of
the three sets were: 20-25, 19-25,
and 16-25. Even though they
didn’t come out with the win, the
girls put up a great fight and are
continuing to improve.
Leading the team in serving,
blocks, digs, and serve receives
was Michaelah Martin. Leading
the first set, 13-25 in the second,
25-22 in the third, and 6-25 in
the final set.
Leading the blocks and kills
was Teagan Engel. Leading the
sets was Karli Kilby, leading the
serving was Shanna Selby, and
leading the digs was Maddy
Vance.
“We saw glimpses of the team
we can and need to be, it’s just a
matter of playing like that the
whole match,” were Coach Ali
Grueb’s thoughts on the games.
Even though they didn’t win, the
girls know what mistakes they
made and know what they need
to work on in practice. Expect
them to come back twice as
strong! This next coming week is
packed with games, playing
Lemmon on Thursday, and a
tournament in Mobridge on Sat-
urday. The Lady Longhorns
would greatly appreciate if you
would come cheer them on!

tieing in serves with Michaelah
Martin was Maddy Vance. Tea-
gan Engel lead the team in hits
and was also named player of
the game.
The Lady Longhorns put up a
great fight and played great to-
gether. Senior Shanna Selby
said, “ We played hard and
fought back, but it just wasn’t
enough. We know what we need
to work on this week and we’re
only getting better.” They are
definitely improving as a team
and really moved their feet the
get the ball. “We played the best
we have this season, Lemmon
just had a few more things go
their way. It was fun to watch
the improvements some of our
players made just in a matter of
a week,” were Coach Ali Grueb’s
thoughts on the game.

horns this Thursday when they
take on the Wall Eagles!

On Saturday, September
14th, the Lady Longhorns made
their way to Mobridge for their
first volleyball tournament. They
played three matches: first was
against Mobridge-Polluck scor-
ing in set one 11-25, and set two
20-25; second match was against
Leola/Frederick scoring in set
one 12-25, and set two 16-25;
and the third match was against
Eureka/Bowdle and scoring in
set one 25-23, set two 23-25, and
set three 25-22.
Leading the team in blocks
was Teagan Engel, leading the
digs and receiving serves was
Michaelah Martin, and leading
the sets and serves was Karli
Kilby. All of the girls played
great but the one played that
stood out on the court was
Shanna Selby, who made all-
tourney. She led the team in hit-
ting and serves, and played
outstanding.
With each game, the girls are
finding out their new strengths
and weaknesses. The serves
were great, but they realized
they need to work on their pass-
ing. “We struggled with our
passing and in turn just couldn’t
hit the way we needed in order to
beat the tough teams in our
pool,” were the coach’s thoughts.
Freshman, Brooklyn Schauer,
says, “We need to work on cover-
ing more and knowing where we
are on the floor.” “I think that we
need to work on knowing where
everyone is so we don’t run into
each other,” were sophomore,
Katie Bogue’s thoughts on the
games. These girls work ex-
tremely hard in practice and you
can almost guarantee that they’ll
have all the kinks worked out be-
fore they play Wall on Thursday.
Congratulations to all of the
runners on doing a good job at
the meet on Friday, September
6th. The runners all did a good
job running on a clear, hot day,

total of twelve schools, and a lot
of supporting parents and fans to
cheer them on. The schools that

mon, New Underwood,
McLaughlin, Newell, Philip,

Longhorns do
well at Wall meet

all-tournament team

Varsity Girls
Shayna Engel got a time of
20:28, placing 14th in the race.
With a time of 22:03 Brooke En-
right placed 20th.
From having two hot meets in
a row all of the runners did a
good job in their races. We heard
that this meet was a little bit
cooler than the last, by a degree
or so. Although some of the run-
ners at the meet had a little bit
slower time, they still ran pretty
good considering the weather
conditions. The next meet will be
at Wall, Saturday, September
14, beginning at 10:00 in the
morning. Good Luck to the run-
ners next week.
Another successful day for the runners

The Longhorns expected noth-
ing short of a win Friday, Sep-
tember 6, in Bison. After
starting the season off with a
win against Buffalo, Faith
planned to extend their winning
streak to 2-0. And that they did.
In fact, the Longhorns cut the
game a little short by reaching
50 points within the first couple
minutes of the fourth quarter.
With a score of 28-0 at the end
of the first quarter, the Long-
horns’ defense was keeping a
tight ship, not allowing any
points. By the end of the second
quarter it was 44-0, with the
Longhorn defense still staying
solid. The third quarter came
and went without any points
scored for either team, but
shortly after the beginning of the
fourth, a touchdown was scored
in favor of the Longhorns. With
a score of 50-0, the mercy rule
came into play, and Faith
brought home another win.
Leaders in tackles were senior,
Clay Bernstein with 9, juniors,
Chaney Keffeler and Sam
Kennedy each had 6, and senior
Blaze McMurtry, also considered
If you were at the football
game Friday night against the
Sully Buttes Chargers, persever-
ance is probably a word that
comes to mind. When it looked
like Faith had the lead for good,
the Chargers came storming
back. When it looked like the
Chargers were going to slip away
with a win, Faith had an answer,
and so on. It was the back-and-
forth type of game that specta-
tors love.
The Longhorns were expect-
ing a good game when the
Chargers came to town, and they
definitely got one. At the half the
score was 0-0, neither team giv-
ing an inch defensively. When
the third quarter rolled around
Faith gained some momentum
and scored on a touchdown pass
to Rio Hulm, and then on Gereth
Bushong’s run into the endzone.
However, all cheering stopped
when Gereth didn’t get up. With
a knee injury that sidelined him
for the rest of the game, Dalton
Sheridan stepped in as
Bushong’s backup. With a score
of 12-0, the Chargers quickly re-
turned a kick and punt to make
it 12-14. However, the Long-
horns fought back and scored
their third touchdown. 18-14,
Faith. With seconds slowly tick-
ing off the clock, the Chargers
scored again. 18-20. In a wild
final six minutes, the Longhorns
got the ball within scoring posi-
tion twice but couldn’t convert,
held the Chargers to two three-
and-outs, and proceeded to get
themselves back into scoring po-
sition once again. After strong
run plays from Shane Lutz, the
last drive proved to be successful
when Sheridan dove into the
endzone for a touchdown. There
was 22.9 seconds left on the clock
and the Longhorns had the lead,
24-20. A solid kick-off from Rio
Hulm that flew through the up-
rights, and one last defensive
stop from Faith sealed the deal.
Final score: 24-20.
Head coach Brian Berglund
said, “It took us a little while to
get going; get a flow. I think we
did a great job stopping their
run, but our pass coverage still
needs work. It was just a great
team effort.” Assistant coach
Travis Grueb added, “Dalton did
a great job stepping into a big
game and playing well. That was
a key part of our victory.”
Among the players, defense
was a word that came up in
everyone’s interviews. Gereth
Bushong said, “Our defense did
one heck of a job. We were
pinned on our goal line, didn’t
give an inch, and got the ball
back.” Dalton Sheridan’s
thoughts were very similar, “Our
guys played outstanding de-
fense. They got us back in scor-
ing position every time we
needed it, and I also think our of-
fensive line did a great job. They
gave Gereth and I both plenty of
time to get the ball off in the
pocket.”
Leaders in tackles included
Clay Bernstein with 15, Blaze
McMurtry with 12, Chaney Kef-
feler with 11, and Tyler Hohen-
berger and Chance Escott each
with 10.
As always, the team is far
from satisfied with their per-
formance. All with almost iden-
tical responses, Clay Bernstein,
Blaze McMurtry, and Dalton
Sheridan, Gereth Bushong
seemed to sum it up. “There
were things we did well, but
there’s things we need to work
on also. We have a good team,
but we have to improve in all
areas if we want to excel in the
postseason. Overall it was a good
test for us and exactly the kind
of game that we needed to get
better.”
The next week of high school
football brings a bye week for the
Faith Longhorns, and it seems
like it couldn’t have come at a
better time. With a week to heal
up and improve, the Longhorns
should be ready as ever by kick-
off Friday, September 27th, in
Rapid when they face off with
Rapid City Christian.
player of the game by the Long-
horn coaching staff, had 7.
We had a chance to speak
with Assistant Coach Travis
Grueb after the game about his
thoughts on the game. “Our de-
fense played well as a unit, par-
ticularly the linebackers. They
flowed nicely and everyone ran
to the ball. One of our weak-
nesses was definitely the offen-
sive line. I didn’t feel that they
completely came to play, and
they didn’t quite bring the inten-
sity that they did last week.
We’d definitely like to see all the
players come with intensity, no
matter our opponent.”
Clay Bernstein added, “We
need to step it up for the Sully
Buttes game next Friday.” After
speaking with the coaches we’ve
summarized the teams expecta-
tions of the next game, Friday,
September 13th, with Sully
Buttes. “They’ll be playing an of-
fense that we haven’t seen yet
this year. But, if we defend well
it will end up playing into our
hands because our linebackers
are so aggressive. In their of-
fense they will more than likely
run the ball more and that
should be more to our advan-
tage.”

The South Dakota Grasslands
Coalition, Corson and Perkins
County Conservation Districts,
Tatanka RC&D, and the Natural
Resources Conservation Service
are proud to organize two 3 day
workshops on Holistic Resource
Management. One will be held
Tuesday, September 24 through
Thursday, September 26 from
8:00 am to 4:00 pm each day at
the McIntosh City Hall in McIn-
tosh, South Dakota. The second
one will be held Tuesday, Octo-
ber 8 through Thursday, October
10 from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm each
day at the Cheyenne River Motel
Conference Room in Eagle Butte,
South Dakota.
These workshops are being
presented by Joshua Dukart, a
land and livestock manager from
Bismarck, ND. He is a Certified
Educator of Holistic Manage-
ment who speaks and teaches
regularly throughout the United
States and Canada. With his
current ranching activities and
diverse experiences teaching and
consulting, he will share real-life
examples of Holistic Manage-
ment in action.
Holistic Management is a new
management approach helping
people improve their quality of
life, generate wealth and man-
age their resources. It’s a process
of goal setting, decision making
and monitoring that people
throughout the world are using
to restore vitality to their
ranches, businesses, communi-
ties, and the natural resources
we all depend on.
These workshops are highly
recommended for producers by
past participants. Kayla Ander-
son, Lemmon, SD who attended
this workshop said, “It really
made us think more outside the
box of how we run our operation.
We learned that there really is
no wrong way of doing things
and to be more proactive with
our thinking ahead instead of
being reactive to possible out-
comes to situations.”
There is a cost for the work-
shops which includes a textbook,
workbook, lunch and breaks.
Each ranch may bring one addi-
tional participant for an addi-
tional fee. Class sizes are limited
to 30 people, so call now to pre-
register. To pre-register or for
more details, call Tatanka

Non-Insured Crop Disaster
Assistance Program Dead-
line
FSA reminds producers inter-
ested in participating in the
Non-Insured Crop Disaster As-
sistance Program (NAP) of the
upcoming application deadline
dates that must be met for NAP
qualification.
NAP is designed to cover
losses caused by damaging
weather conditions. If losses are
in excess of 50 percent, payment
would be received. Losses are
generally determined by the per-
centage of loss compared to the
producer's actual yield history.
Eligible production losses are
paid at 55 percent of the estab-
lished value for the crop.
Application deadline dates for
specific NAP qualifying crops are
listed.
•The deadline date for forage
crops, including most spring
planted forages and pasture land
forages not covered by federal
crop insurance, is September 30,
2013.
•September 30, 2013 is also
the application closing date for
winter and spring plantings of
wheat, barley, rye, and triticale
crops to be harvested as forage.
Producers with NAP coverage
must remember to timely file
acreage reports and or invento-
ries, and keep track of harvested
production using acceptable
methods. A “Notice of Loss” must
also be filed within 15 days of
when a loss is apparent, due to
drought, hail, flood, etc. to qual-
ify for NAP.
Producers interested in NAP
are encouraged to contact their
FSA office to obtain coverage or
for additional information on
NAP prior to the above deadline
dates.

updated information and discuss the as-
pects, concerns, time-frame and
progress of the Safe Room.
Mr. Daughters gave the superinten-
dent’s report. Our freshmen and Student
Council will be attending the Freshman
Impact being put on by C.O.R.E. on Sep-
tember 25th. Four other area districts will
also be bringing students to attend. En-
rollment for the 2013-2014 school year
is at 184. Mr. Daughters attended the
NWAS Administrative Advisory Board
meeting on September 3rd. Items dis-
cussed were changes in speech serv-
ices to Bison and Harding County;
Courtney Wimer is the new school psy-
chologist; Vicky Waterland is now provid-
ing the Early Childhood services in our
area under the supervision of Sandy
Hoff. Faith will be hosting the Academic
Olympics on April 23, 2014 and the
spelling contest will be in Dupree on April
16, 2014. Faith will also be the host of a
scrubs camp that will be put together by
NWAS/ESA5 on October 30th at the
Community Center. Moving the mobile
units and open houses was also dis-
cussed. Mr. Daughters will be a part of a
new budget committee formed at NWAS.
The air conditioning system was tested
the first few weeks of school and had
some issues that have required atten-
tion. The kindergarten room will require
new parts. The scoreboard was struck
by lightning and was not working. It has
been fixed and turned into the insurance
company. Rob Monson from SASD has
asked school superintendents to join in
on writing letters to the governor. In ad-
dition, SASD has asked school to invite
four legislators to school in the next four
months for a conversation about helping
education as part of the “4-4-for” plan.
The Tech math class researched and
painted the lines in our parking lot.
Mr. Kraemer gave the elementary
principal’s report. Mr. Kraemer has
begun the evaluations of the certified
staff and non-certified staff. When the
State Department of Education sends
out their final edition of the Common
Core Standards we may be able to con-
tinue to use the present format and
forms. The DOE thinks they will allow
school districts to continue to use their
present formats, so long as they meet all
the requirements of the DOE evaluation
model. The birth-to kindergarten screen-
ing was completed on August 27th. Mr.
Kraemer attended a workshop on Docu-
menting the IEP Process in Sturgis on
August 30th. In conjunction with the Fall
Parent-Teacher Conferences, Title I Staff
member will have the annual open
house. Mr. Kraemer has been out to visit
the Maurine School for two short visits
and will be visiting again later this month.
Both teachers at Maurine report that the
school year is off to a great start.
Noma Welter gave the library board
report. Story Hour began on September
4th with 12 children in attendance. The
HOP Exhibit that Faith expected to re-
ceive this year was not available and a
refund was issued. Kathy Schuchhardt
was removed from her trustee position
due to a conflict with her new position as
library assistant. The board voted to
move Vicki Waterland from advisory
board to the trustee board and Verneen
Frei will fill the advisory board position.
The library board voted to extend
Wednesday’s hours from 4:00 pm to
5:00 pm. September 9th, 15 individuals
participated in the SD Humanities Coun-
cil One Book SD book discussion with
Joan Wink.
No NWAS report was available.
Facilities were previously addressed
during the discussion of the Safe Room.
Mr. Daughters asked board members
what types of discussions and profes-
sional development activities they would
like to pursue.
Mr. Daughters informed the board the
annual Data Retreat had been held on
September 4th. The data obtained from
that retreat will be used to drive the
Whole Faculty Study Group professional
development the staff does throughout
the school year.
Mr. Daughters shared that he had at-
tended the FEF meeting. He updated the
FEF on the progress of the Safe Room
and they agreed to continue their contri-
butions for pre-school.
It was the consensus of the board to
try to participate in the “4-4-for” program
with the legislators. Mr. Daughters asked
that a board member also be present
when the legislators come as well so that
a one-on-one discussion might be held.
Mr. Daughters shared that the condi-
tion of the school vehicles needs to be
looked at. Dialogue and discussion fol-
lowed regarding the need, planning and
budgeting for vehicles.
