City council hears on safe room
By Loretta Passolt
The Faith City Council heard details on the safe room from Loren Schaeffer and Tim Lutz from Brosz Engineering at their September 17th meeting. The City received a FEMA grant for $600,000 and they are close to that amount in their plans, according to Schaeffer. The 5200 sq. ft. building will be used as a tornado shelter, and will accomodate a kitchen and small gym for the school, along with a storage area. This will probably be a precast building, like the community center, and will withstand winds to 250 mph. Schaeffer stated that the geo-thermal unit for the school will make for a tight fit for the building construction without doing any damage to the unit. There are quite a few federal rules that go along with a FEMA grant. There are several items that the grant does not cover: paint, carpet/flooring, kitchen accomodations other than storage, and a few other things. The grant is a 75/25 grant and in-kind service can be counted as part of the funds. The City will be paying $100,000 of the funds and the school will cover the balance of anything above and beyond that amount. Schaeffer said they will have the bidding document ready to send to FEMA for approval by the end of October and it should be let for bids in January or early February. Once the City pays their $100,000 and construction is done, they will turn it over to the school. Reed Henschel informed Council that he has almost completed work on the ice house. He did about $500 in additional work on doors, etc. that needed to be taken care of. It should be about ready to stain. He said the original color was gray, whether they wanted to go with that or stay with what they have, he didn’t know. The grant doesn’t specify anything regarding color. They tabled the finish work until the next meeting for further research on the color. Karen Butler from Butler Insurance presented the property liability insurance information for renewal on Ocotber 1. There was a slight increase in coverage for additional vehicles, equipment, etc. and in the premium cost. The City had $24,900 in claims this past year from damages from hail and lightning. The fire department had less than $1,000 in claims. Members will review and bring it back to their October 1 meeting. The Inghrams were on the agenda for water connections. Mayor Haines said Atty. Bogue advised him to table any decision until they can work on a policy. They currently have no real policy and they need to be more specific about water taps, size, locations, number of connections, etc. Location was discussed, as to whether on east or west side of road, and trenching across the road, which belongs to the County. Riley chided the Mayor for not wanting to approve these connections. Mayor Haines Continued on next page

Fred Kost
graduated with the Class of 1947 from Eagle Butte High School. At an early age the Kost boys worked in various capacities in the area including herding sheep for Woody Hayes. Fred and his brother Anton continued the farm/ranch heritage in the Kost Brothers' Partnership using the Kost Brother's brand. In the mid-1950's, upon starting their own families the brothers divided their ranching operation with Fred and Marie remaining on the homeplace while Anton and Betty built an operation near the Strong family headquarters. Fred and Anton maintained a close brotherly bond, talking daily until the tragic loss of Anton. In Pierre, SD on April 5, 1952 Fred married his wife of nearly 58 years, Clare Marie Jensen. Fred suffered his greatest loss on his birthday, February 20th, 2010 with the death of his beloved wife, Marie. Fred was a man of great tenacity, worked hard everyday, and stood firmly behind his family, friends, and his beliefs. Fred enjoyed raising and feeding high quality cattle and farming. He had a clear conscience when he went to bed. If one thing were to be said about Fred, it would be, “If it didn't work, he would make it work.” Fred continued residing and working the ranch until July 28, 2013 when he was hospitalized with pneumonia and complications from congestive heart failure and cancer. He succumbed to his battle only after saying goodbye to his family who were surrounding him in his last moments at Golden Living Center in Pierre, SD. Survivors include four children, Vernon “Butch” (Renee') Kost of Amarillo, TX; Steven F. Kost of Pierre, SD; Kenneth Kost of Eagle Butte, SD; Judy (Martin) Albl of Aberdeen, SD; 15 grandchildren: Kevin Kost, Travis (Kirby) Kost, Rhonda (Charlie) Johnson, Donnett Wilson, Shawndell (Lonnie) Perez, James (Misty) Graham, Jessica Kost, Tanner (Brittany) Kost, Katie (Drew) Kalenze, Kendra Kost, KC Kost, Amanda Lautenschlager, Megan Nichols, Madalyn (Michael) Woods, Daniel Albl; great-grandchildren: Dani, Shasteena, Shasten, Bradley, Brandie, Krista, Beret, Hanna, Cody, Renee', Gracie, Treyton, Laela, Porter, Kianna, Braydon, Ethan, Mikaelee, Delancey, Benjamin, Ethan, Alexander, Trey, Gabriel, and numerous greatgreat-grandchildren., one sister Ann Kost, one sister-in-law, Betty Lou Kost, several nieces and nephews. Fred was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Marie, granddaughter Danette, siblings Stephan, infant sister, John, and Anton; son-in-law Darryl Lemke. Arrangements have been placed in care of Isburg Funeral Chapel. Online condolences may be made at www.isburgfuneralchapels.com

stated he was not against the connections, he just wants a policy in place for future reference too. Justin Inghram feels they have a water pressure problem in town, not just north of town. His fluctuates all the time and thought something should be done before winter. Dupper said they checked it and there was plenty of pressure; he doesn’t know what else he can do. Haines turned the policy making over to the water committee to work on with Atty. Bogue and present at their next meeting. Council spent a considerable amount of time on the 2nd Reading of the Budget. Debbie made several changes from the 1st Reading. She didn’t know what kind of figures to put in for sewer, water, electrical, etc. at the school for the safe room. Much depends on whether they will need to put up another transformer, could be an additional $25-30,000. Riley, on behalf of the library asked for additional funds to help buy 7 new computers that are very needed. The current ones are so outdated they are not compatible with anything today. Debbie suggusted they just supplement the funds for the library so they are there if needed. The City gives the library $20,000 plus there is $5390 from the County. She put in $50,000 for the airport for their land purchase project, if they need it. Several departments were increased and some were decreased. Debbie was concerned if they had enough in the ambulance. She had $115, 000 in revenues, and around $179,675 in expenditures. If they purchase a new chassis they will be needing more funds. Debbie will continue to work on it and bring it back to the next meeting. Council also approved Resolution #09-17-13-01 for transfer of funds; approved reimbursing Tori Afdahl for her lifeguard certification; accepted the quote from Ricer Transportation for purchasing the city scrap iron at $80 a ton; appproved surveying Durkee Lake for the fence at the spillway; and tabled a decision on tables for the City Park.
Fred Kost, 85, of Pierre, formerly of Eagle Butte, died Thursday, September 19, 2013 at Golden Living in Pierre. Visitation was Sunday, September 22 at the United Church of Christ in Eagle Butte with a Prayer Service at 6:00 pm. Services were held Monday, September 23 at the United Church of Christ in Eagle Butte with burial at the Eagle Butte Cemetery. Fred Kost was born February 20, 1928 on the homeplace, 3 ½ miles south of Eagle Butte, SD to Russian immigrants Steve and Helen (Burshtin) Kost where he resided his entire life. Fred attended the Busy Bee School and
Minuteman Missile Bill signed into law by President
Washington, DC – U.S. Senators Tim Johnson and John Thune and Congresswoman Kristi Noem announced today that legislation to facilitate construction of a visitor center at the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site was signed into law by President Obama. The law will transfer approximately 29 acres of National Forest Service land to the National Park Service to construct a visitor facility and provide parking. “This law will allow construction of the visitor center to begin shortly at the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site” said Johnson. “This is the first unit of the National Park Service dedicated exclusively to Cold War events. With the visitors center the Park Service will be able to tell the story of this historic site and the role South Dakota played in the Cold War.” “I am pleased the president has cleared the way for the development of a visitor’s center highlighting the important role and historic significance of the Minuteman Site,” said Thune. “The center will make a piece of South Dakota’s past more accessible to students of history from around the globe.” “Now that this bill has been signed into law, plans for a new visitor center can move forward, Continued on Page 6

this dangerous and far-reaching regulation. After the failure of the president’s own cap and tax legislation that also would have increased energy costs and destroyed jobs throughout the country, it is not a surprise that the president has taken to circumventing Congress to implement his climate change agenda. Senator Mitch McConnell (RKy.) announced his intention to file a resolution of disapproval to stop the EPA from imposing this new regulation. The resolution would allow for a vote to repeal the rule and prevent the regulation from being implemented. I plan to cosponsor the resolution of disapproval and will continue to work with my colleagues in the Senate to prevent the EPA from implementing this draconian rule and keep energy costs affordable for middle-class families across South Dakota and throughout our country.

Sen. John Thune’s Weekly Column
EPA’s War on Affordable Energy
South Dakota depends on affordable and reliable energy from coal and natural gas-fired power plants in the upper Great Plains. However, a new proposed rule out of the Obama administration’s Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) threatens to raise energy costs for families and businesses and restrict economic growth and job creation throughout our state and across the country. Recently, the EPA released a proposed rule that would require unrealistic new carbon standards for all new power plants. The cost of implementing this proposed rule on reliable energy sources far outweighs the benefits and represents yet another step forward in the president’s war on affordable energy. The rule raises serious concerns about how this far-reaching and burdensome regulation will impact the nation’s energy supply and economic future. As two of the nation’s largest and most reliable sources of affordable electricity, the EPA is essentially forcing the hand of coal and natural gas-fired power plants to submit to the new source performance standards or face potential elimination in the marketplace. Unfortunately, the EPA’s performance standards are set to an unrealistic and arguably unattainable standard. Instead of working through the proper channels in Congress to address the EPA’s concerns on power plant emissions, the administration yet again sidestepped Congress to implement
Gov. signs proclamation supporting SD Guard, Reserve employers
Dennis Daugaard Gov. demonstrated his support of employers who employ National Guard and Reserve members by signing a proclamation announcing Employer Support of the Guard and Reserve Week in South Dakota Sept. 22-28. The proclamation coincides with President Barack Obama's national proclamation announcing ESGR Week. The proclamation is to recognize that employers provide critical support to members of the National Guard and Reserve; allowing citizen warriors to serve whenever the nation calls, often foregoing financial gain and making sacrifices in the process. "Having Governor Daugaard proclaim ESGR week in South Dakota means that we have the strong support from our governor for the U.S. military, especially our National Guard, Army Reserve and Navy Reserve men and women in South Dakota," said Ron Mielke, South Dakota ESGR state chair. "It also helps the citizens of this state understand the important role that ESGR has in building and maintaining the best relationship possible between our Reserve component members and their employers." National Guard and Reserve forces comprise nearly half of our nation's military strength, and stand ready to answer the call to serve, whether serving alongside active duty counterparts all across the globe or responding to humanitarian crises at home and abroad. Likewise, Mielke says the proclamation also pays special tribute to the commitment of dedicated and supportive employers who continue to make service in the Reserve components possible. "We are always looking for ways to increase the awareness of our ESGR committee in South Dakota to both our great employers but also the public in general," he said. "Our employers across the state need to know that ESGR is there for them as a resource to use relative to their relationship with Guard and Reserve employees in their organization." ESGR is a Department of Defense agency that will develop and promote a culture in which all American employers support and value the military service of their employees with ESGR as the principal advocate within the DoD.
Community Health Centers play crucial part in providing South Dakotans with quality health care
By U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-SD) Community Health Centers (CHC) play a crucial role in providing South Dakotans with high-quality health care. In 2012, CHC treated 56,000 patients in over 200,000 visits to their clinics.  This includes 12,000 patients who received dental care and 20,000 patients who do not have health insurance. There are six primary clinics across South Dakota and each of them have several satellite facilities. I recently toured the De Smet Community Health Center to see first-hand the kind of quality care these facilities provide and was very impressed. CHC are well known for providing first rate primary health care in medically underserved communities. Education about health care programs is part of CHC mission too. In fact, CHC have a history of providing eligibility information and enrollment assistance to people for Medicaid and the federal Children’s Health Insurance Program. Now Community Health Centers are poised to expand their role. Under the Affordable Care Act uninsured South Dakotans will be able to purchase health insurance through a new Federally Facilitated Marketplace beginning on October 1st. The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services is setting up the Health Insurance Marketplace with state oversight of the health insurance companies. Companies offering health insurance under the marketplace include Avera Health, Sanford Health, and DAKOTACARE. Community Health Centers will play an important part in implementing the new Health Insurance Marketplace in South Dakota. With funding assistance from the Department of Health and Human Services, CHC will be conducting outreach, education, and enrollment to help South Dakotans access health insurance coverage. To carry out this new and expanded role designated staff at CHC are undergoing training to become specialized Certified Application Counselors. These counselors will provide consumers with help in understanding the new health insurance options available to them. They will also provide assistance to individuals to actually sign up for health insurance coverage. Additionally, CHC will be able to help individuals understand what financial assistance they may qualify for to make health insurance coverage more affordable. This financial assistance includes tax credits for health insurance premiums and costsharing subsidies to reduce consumers out-of-pocket spending for health care. Thousands of people who are uninsured, selfemployed, or not offered health insurance through their employer will be able to utilize the new Health Insurance Marketplace in South Dakota with guidance from CHC counselors. I am excited about the expanded responsibilities for CHC in the state’s health system. They have proven themselves in delivering high quality health care and helping people understand federal health programs. You can find out more about CHC at their website www.communityhealthcare.net.  I also encourage you to explore the new Health Insurance Marketplace at www.HealthCare.gov. I welcome South Dakota’s Community Health Centers to their new role in helping the uninsured receive good health coverage under the Affordable Care Act’s new Health Insurance Marketplace.

We had thunder and lightning last Tuesday night shortly after 10:00 but no moisture, nothing measurable anyway. We woke to a heavy fog Wednesday morning, and received very little rain later that afternoon. We had more of the same Sunday night, with quite a bit of thunder and lightning, and a little rain. Fall officially arrived this past Sunday and temperatures definitely feel like fall, dropping to the 50s and 60s part of the week. Although Sunday we reached the mid 90s. Probably our last really warm day for awhile. It started raining here Monday morning around 11 and continued into part of the afternoon, giving us .60”. The Fischbachs have company this week. Noel brought sister Yvette home from the RC Airport last Thursday to spend about 10 days at Dave and Eldora’s. She’ll also be visiting sister Kathy Schuchhardt while she’s here. Eldora made a trip to Rapid City for a planning session on Friday for next year’s quilt classes. Marge Hoffman called Monday morning with a little news. She has coffee with Karen Sletten about everyday, but Evelyn Marshall joined them one morning, and Peggy Mastel joined them one day last week. Her granddaughter Carla Sackmann and her son Josh visited Marge on Sunday and all enjoyed dinner out and did a little running around. She keeps very busy and is doing well. Diane Isaacs, Cindy Escott and I took another one of our little road trips to Eagle Butte last Friday afternoon. We did a little shopping, then enjoyed treats at our usual stop before coming home. We also drove down main street in Dupree on our way home to see the new grocery store going in there. It was a good afternoon to get away for a fun time. Our daughter Melissa came home last Wednesday afternoon and spent the night. She spent a little time at the school visiting Ms. Mollman’s classroom and visited with friends Marlayna and Takayla. She brought Bella down for us to dogsit while she and Jeremy, along with his dad Rock and 7 others, went to Dallas, TX to take in the Cowboys football game on Sunday. It was quite an exciting time. They took a tour of the new Cowboys stadium Saturday morning and took in car races at Texas Motor Speedway on Saturday night. She posted lots of pictures on Facebook! She said Erling and Linda Olson from Dupree were on their flight down. They were evidently going to see their son Lee. She also saw Ryan Miller at the airport when they landed. He was there picking someone up. They returned home Monday. She’s planning to come down this Tuesday or Wednesday to get Bella. Freshman Impact is taking place at the Community Center today, Wednesday until 3:00. There are freshmen here from three or four other schools. This is a quite interesting and informative program for these students to learn the consequences of impaired driving, alcohol, drugs, and other risk-taking behaviors. There will be learning stations, a mock accident, mock trial, and so much more going on. This program is taught by law enforcement and rescue personnel. Parents and the public are more
than welcome to attend. The football boys had a week off last week, but will be traveling to Rapid City to play RC Christian this Friday. The cross country runners will also be traveling to Rapid City this Friday for a meet. This is always a tough one! They will be going to Lemmon on Monday for a meet. The jr. high volleyball girls will be hosting Timber Lake this Friday afternoon at 4:00. The Little Moreau Conference Volleyball Tournament will be here this Saturday beginning at 9:00 am. The 6th-8th football players will be traveling to Lemmon on Saturday for a Jamboree. The JV volleyball girls will be hosting a triangular next Tuesday, Oct. 2, beginnning at 4:30. The B & A volleyball girls will be traveling to Harding Co. next Thursday, 3rd for games. The 6th-8th football team will be playing Timber Lake here next Thursday at 4:30.

Friday provided a picture perfect day for homecoming festivities in Sturgis. The Enning/Union Center students and teachers entered a float in the parade that was held at 2:00 pm. Larry Rhoden had a parade entry as a U.S. Senate candidate. Larry Reinhold drove the vehicle while his six children and friends, Larry and Sandy Rhoden, Lorie Hausmann, and Renee Rose passed out stickers, candy and literature. The Scoopers won their homecoming game to end the day on a positive note. While Sunday marked the first day of autumn, the summer like temperature of 94 degrees topped off the day in Central Meade County. There were some bow hunters out there hunting antelope this weekend. The praries in the area are still fairly green, however a good rain is welcome. The new fire hall in Union Center received its concrete floor last week and is appearing to be close to completion. It will be interesting to take a peek at the building to see what all it's functions will be. The Faith School held Parent Teacher Conferences on Thursday of last week. There was a girls volleyball game that evening, while the football team had the weekend off. The JV football team played Timber Lake on Monday night. Tristen Rhoden and Wyatt Shuelke are seeing a lot of playing time on JV this year. Tristen was out of both football and basketball last year because of ACL surgery and is very happy to be back.
Rep. Kristi Noem’s Weekly Column
There are many things that can interrupt our daily lives. Whether it’s the stress of work, family schedules or that errand you forgot to run, sometimes todo lists are irrelevant by lunchtime. But even amidst the craziness of a given day, we all need to take a moment and reflect on life’s greatest blessings. I continue to feel honored every single day that I have the opportunity to represent the great people and state of South Dakota in Congress. While debates on the House floor or in committee rooms may get stressful, I cannot help but stand in awe of the incredible buildings and history that surround my daily work at the Capitol. In fact, it was 220 years ago that George Washington first placed the cor-

nerstone of the Capitol. These buildings witnessed the development of a more perfect union and the hallways are rich in the history of generations of lawmakers and the ideas of our founding fathers. Although it’s easy to get frustrated with the gridlock and dysfunction in Washington, D.C., it’s important to remember the fundamental values that gave rise to our great nation. September 17th marked the 226th anniversary of the signing of the U.S. Constitution and is commonly referred to as Constitution Day. This day is designed to remind us of the sacred rights and freedoms guaranteed to us by our nation’s founding document. In 1775, Alexander Hamilton wrote: “The sacred rights of mankind are not to be rummaged for, among old parch-

ments, or musty records. They are written, as with a sun beam in the whole volume of human nature, by the hand of divinity itself; and can never be erased or obscured by mortal power.” Times of war or peace and times of economic prosperity or downturn cannot diminish or tarnish these values that embolden us as a people and as a nation. At the beginning of every Congress, I take an oath of office in which I state my duty to uphold the Constitution of the United States: “I, Kristi Noem, do solemnly swear that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; that I will bear true faith and allegiance to the same; that I take this obligation freely, without any mental reservation or purpose of evasion; and that I will well and faithfully discharge the duties of the office on which I am about to enter. So help me God.” I use the tenets of this oath to guide my every day decisions. We, the people of the United States of America, have a duty and responsibility to recognize what makes our country great and honor those who fought so hard for these fundamental freedoms. I hope you take some time with your friends and family and read the Constitution. President Ronald Reagan once said that “freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction.” I encourage you to remember those words and appreciate the nature of the freedoms we enjoy.

Fall is here with lots of winter wheat being planted or already in the ground. There are still crops to harvest, hay to move and fence to fix before cows come home to the winter range. We know it is South Dakota because I’ve been doing the heater in the morning, air conditioner in the afternoon thing for several days this week. Today, Sunday, our temperature was 91 at noon and continued to climb. Tonight the sky is overcast and they are predicting rain most of the night. Harold and I were in Spearfish for our grandson, Mathew Schilling’s, ninth birthday party. As we drove home we were treated to a show of lightning strikes and rain part of the way. I don’t know how I missed it but I did not extend sympathy to Leanne Kennedy and family in the loss of her mother. I know it is hard to lose a parent and I want Leanne and family to know we send condolences. Sympathy is also sent to the family of Bill Winchel. He was a former area resident and was married to Shirley Mann also a former resident who resided in Faith and worked at Kelly’s Super Valu in the 1960’s. Bev Hudson said Bill was also her 4H leader in the Marcus area. Our condolences also go to the family of Harold Dutton. Harold was another area resident who made this the best place in the world to live and raise a family. He and Vera have always supported community and school activities to make this a better world. I’m sure if I tried to list all the things he’s done for his community we’d have a long, long list. Lacey, Quirt and Rio Wondercheck and I were in Rapid City Friday for a check up on Rio’s ears. Because he has retained fluid behind the ear drum for over two months they did a simple surgery to place tubes in his ears Friday night. It was a long day before we came home. When we came and went to Rapid City we took the New Underwood cut across road. Big mistake. They have chunks of pavement cut out of both sides. It is not a good road at this time but they are working on it. This went from just south of the river bridge to the road where the tar used to start.   Wednesday evening, Jim and Vonnie O’Dea went to the Milesville Hall for a supper and evening of visiting. Dr. Jim Stangle was being honored as he had been chosen Vet of the Year in SD. Many people enjoyed the evening and four other vets from SD were also there, plus Jim's dad, his two brothers and three sisters. Jim and Vonnie O'Dea were up early Saturday morning and headed for Chadron to watch Amy Deichert in the college rodeo there. They enjoyed supper with Amy and friends and returned to Hot Springs to spend the night. Sunday was a day of touristing in the Hills with a stop in Hill City to visit with friends, Judy and Larry Walker. Then a stop at Silver City to visit with some of Vonnie's relatives. Wonderful to get away, but just as good to drive into one’s own driveway and home.

South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs launches new website
The South Dakota Department of Veterans Affairs is pleased to announce the launch of its new website. The new site is designed to offer veterans a centralized clearinghouse of valuable resources accessible from anywhere in the world. In conjunction, the Department has added a mobile website, making it easier for veterans to access information from their smartphones or tablets. “If we are going to reach out to the new generation of veterans who grew up with computers and the Internet, we have to capitalize on those technologies,” said Secretary of Veterans' Affairs Larry Zimmerman. “Our new website is designed to highlight the benefits and programs available to them, as well as provide veterans with a list of experts ready to assist them in maneuvering through their benefits.” An estimated 75,000 veterans live in South Dakota and that number increases as our troops return home each month.

Grand River Roundup
By Betty Olson
We’ve had beautiful fall weather all week – warm days, cool nights, and almost a half inch of rain. It came near freezing one night when our thermometer registered 32.7º , but I can’t see that it did any damage to the garden. We wear jackets in the morning, the cool nights are great for sleeping, and we haven’t run the air conditioner for days. Reub had an appointment with Mary Eggebo in Hettinger Tuesday and then we went out to Kenny and Mindy Messer’s to get some tubing so Reub can build a ramp to load his fourwheeler in the back of the pickup to replace the one he lost last week. Mindy gave me some pieces of petrified wood they found in their pasture that I can’t wait to ask a geologist about. I’ve never seen anything like this – it almost looks like coral grew on the outside of the petrified wood. Fascinating! One of our Great Pyrenees guard dogs got run over and killed on the highway Wednesday. Just like one of her predecessors her only vice was chasing cars and suffered the same fate that old Snowball did. Luke Rice had called to see if I knew anyone who would like to buy his two guard dogs. He sold his sheep and doesn’t need them anymore, so Casey took one of them and Louise Jenson got the other one. Louise recently lost five lambs to coyotes, so the guard dog will be an asset to her sheep operation! We’ve heard Lance Giannonatti on the radio a couple times this week hunting coyotes. Lance is a terrific predator control pilot and on Thursday he had his cousin Jeff Giannonatti and Kevin Robinson on the ground helping him get some coyotes just north of our place. Thanks a bunch you guys, can’t tell you how much your work is appreciated. The sheep thank you too! The tomatoes in my garden are pretty sorry this year, but Patsy Wilkinson and Linda Mohagen shared some of their produce with me. I put up fourteen quarts of tomatoes on Friday. Linda also sent me several cucumbers and with the ones I had in my garden, I made ten pounds of lime water pickles on Saturday. Since I have a lot more purple cabbage than we can eat, I tried something new. I shredded five pounds of purple cabbage
and made purple sauerkraut! It looks good, but I’ll try to remember to let you know what it tastes like after it is done fermenting. Casey, Missy, Bryce, and Trig went to Chadron Saturday for Parents’ Day for the football team. Two Harding County boys go to school in Chadron and both Chek Giannonatti and Taz play football for the Chadron Eagles. Chek tore up his knee so he’s on crutches, but they got to watch Taz play football against Colorado Mesa. It was a tough game, but Chadron won. All of Chek’s family came to watch the game even if he is laid up, and lots of folks from this area were also there. Shane and Cassidy O’Dell brought their new baby boy Tytan with them. Chase Stugelmeyer, Amanda and Jarrett Jenson, Mason Teigen, Sam Podzimek, Tate Gress, Whit Brown, Kyler Floyd, and Jo Hetzel and one of her boys also came to cheer for Chadron. Hospital report: Joe Verhulst is having some health problems in Arizona and is on dialysis. On Friday, Donald Krambeer was transferred from the VA hospital in Helena, Montana, to the VA hospital in Denver, CO where doctors are running tests to find out what exactly is wrong with him. Please keep Joe and Donald in your prayers.  Mark Millett let us know he and Janie have a new grandson! Eric and Debbie Millett had a baby boy, born Saturday, September 21. Jaxon James Millett weighs 7lbs 4 oz and is 19.5 inches long. He is the first boy in their family and has four older sisters to help raise him right. Congratulations!! The US House of Representatives passed a Continuing Resolution this week to keep funding all of government, but cut all funding for the very unpopular Affordable Care Act, otherwise known as ObamaCare. Pres. Obama is pitching a fit, accusing Republicans of “messing with me”. He has given exemptions to big business, several of his campaign supporters, and just re-
cently to Congress and their staff. However, the average citizen is still stuck with having to sign up for this very expensive program or pay a fine. The Affordable Care Act has proven to NOT be affordable and will end healthcare as we know it when it takes effect on October 1st. Health insurance premiums have increased and labor unions that pushed so hard to get ObamaCare passed now want to be exempted from it after they realized what it is going to cost them in both premium increases and job loses. Montana Democrat Sen. Max Baucus said, “ObamaCare is a train wreck” and other Democrats, including Howard Dean, are trying to distance themselves from Obama’s boondoggle. Remember Obama’s Cash for Clunkers program? Charlie White sent me this: Democrats, realizing the success of the President's "Cash For Clunkers" rebate program, have revamped a major portion of ObamaCare. President Obama, Nancy Pelosi, and Harry Reid are expected to make this major announcement at a joint news conference later this week. I
have obtained an advanced copy of the proposal which is named "CASH FOR CODGERS" and it works like this: Couples wishing to access health care funds in order to pay for the delivery of a child will be required to turn in one old person. The amount the government grants them will be fixed according to a sliding scale. Older and more prescription-dependent codgers will garner the highest amounts. Special "Bonuses" will be paid for those submitting codgers in targeted groups, such as smokers, alcohol drinkers, persons 10 pounds over their government prescribed weight, and any member of the Republican Party. Smaller bonuses will be given for codgers who consume beef, soda, fried foods, potato chips, lattes, whole milk, dairy products, bacon, or Girl Scout Cookies. All codgers will be rendered totally useless via toxic injection. This will insure that they are not secretly resold or their body parts harvested to  keep other codgers in repair. Remember you heard it here first...
Minuteman Missile
allowing South Dakotans and visitors from all over the country to visit this historic site and learn more about the history of the Minuteman Missile,” said Noem. “The Minuteman Missile National Historic Site helps tell the story of how the Minuteman played a role in bringing peace during tense relations between the United States and former Soviet Union. I’m pleased the House, Senate and the president took swift action on this common-sense bill.” The launch control facility and missile silo that make up the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site were preserved to illustrate the history of the Cold War and the role the Air Force’s Minuteman II Missile defense system played in efforts to pre-

serve world peace.  The new law builds upon a law passed in 1999 that established Minuteman Missile as a National Historic Site. The land transfer provided in the new law allows for the construction of a visitor center and administrative facility at Exit 131 off of I-90 (about 70 miles east of Rapid City). The bill would also transfer 3.65 acres near the missile silo for visitor parking and other administrative uses. Congress provided funding for the construction of the visitor center when the Site was established. The Minuteman Missile consists of the Delta-01 Launch Facility and the Delta-09 Missile Silo, located about 11 miles from one another on Interstate 90.

Bye week chance to recover from injuries for the Longhorns
By Shali Sheridan & Kianna Fisher You could definitely say that the Faith Longhorn football team has started their season off with a bang. They’ve played Harding County, Bison, and Sulley Buttes, two of those teams being a couple of the toughest teams in the state. Last Friday, instead of padding up and playing football, the boys had a bye week. It almost seemed like the timing couldn’t be any more perfect because of all of the recent injuries. Sophomore Tye Grubl has been out for the first three weeks with a broken collar bone from a dirt bike accident. He’s just been taking it easy and is expected to be back in three weeks. Junior Trey Donovan has been out for about two weeks from a possible meniscus (cartlege) injury during practice. He is waiting on doctors for the results. Even though we won against Sulley Buttes, our boys took a beating, taking major assets for our team, Chaney Keffeler and Gereth Bushong out of the game. Keffeler was running the ball when he was pushed into the crow’s nest, pulling his groin. Anyone at the game could’ve heard it. He’s still practicing, but taking it easy to recover. It’s already improving a lot and he should be back on the field in no time. Bushong’s injury, however, was much more severe. He ran the ball for a touchdown, and ended up tearing his ACL. The whole team was worried about their starting quarterback in one of the toughest games of the year, but Dalton Sheridan stepped up and took his place and did an outstanding job, leading the Longhorns to their third straight win. Bushong will be out for 3-9 months and will be having surgery on the 25th. After that he will be going to physical therapy to recover. Having a bye week really gave these boys a chance to rest and heal up. Hopefully they recover quickly so we can see them under those Friday night lights once again.

Lady Longhorns come up short against Wall and Kadoka
By Katie Bogue & Jami Derflinger On Thursday, September 19th, the Lady Longhorns lost in a close match up against Wall. The scores of the three sets were: 2225, 18-25, and 16-25. This was a home game which helped the girls out with a great crowd, even though they didn’t come out with a win they put up a great fight. Leading the team in serves was Karli Kilb; Michaelah Martin led in attacks and receiving serves; Tori Simonson led in digs; Shanna Selby led in sets, and Teagan Engel led in blocks. Even though all of the players did a good job, the player that stood out was Michaelah Martin for her passing game. Junior Tori Simonson said, “I feel like our team still hasn’t lived up to our full potential yet. Every year it takes some time for a team to click, and I think with such a young team we might take a little bit longer to click than past years.” “I guess we could have played better, we really need to work more in the back row and getting in our spots when the other team is hitting,” were junior Michaelah Martin’s thoughts. Coach Ali Grueb thoughts of the Wall game were, “Again we struggled with our passing game which in turn makes our hitting game struggle.” There was also a JV Wall game with the scores of: 28-26, 18-25, and 14-16. Even though the JV players never won they fought hard and played one of the best games they have so far this season. The high scorer for the JV Wall game was Kaeli Carmichael with a total of 9 points, including 3 points being aces. The Lady Longhorns ended up traveling to Kadoka last Saturday, September 22nd. They again lost in a close match with the scores being: 17-25, 17-25, and 18-25. Leading with serves, attacks, and sets was Shanna Selby, leading with receiving serves and digs was Michaelah Martin, and leading with blocks was Teagan Engel. All of the girls did a great job playing, but the player that stood out in this game was Shanna Selby. Coach Ali Grueb quoted that, “We gave them too many free balls and missed serves and couldn’t move our feet to cover our holes on the court. We are going to go back to our basics in practice and start from square one and hopefully come back a new team in time for the conference tournament this weekend.” Junior Michaelah Martin said, “We just need to keep our heads up and work really hard in practice, so we are ready for conference tournament.” “I think it just showed us that we still have things to work on as a team, but they are little mistakes. It just showed that we have a lot of room for improvement which means we are close with all of our competitors for the rest of the season,” Senior Karli Kilby said. When the Lady Longhorns traveled to Kadoka there was a JV game as well. The JV girls did a great job and brought home a win in two sets with the scores of: 25-22 and 25-22. The high scorer of this Kadoka JV game was Kassidy Inghram with a total of 11 points, which included 6 aces. Come and support the Lady Longhorns on their upcoming games of the week. They have a home game on Tuesday, September 23rd, with Philip. Then they travel to New Underwood on Thursday, September 26th. Again in Faith on Saturday, September 28th, they will be matching up against different teams in the LMC tournament.

Senator Johnson presses Hatchery issue at hearing in D.C.
Booth Society, Inc., the nonprofit fisheries friends group of D.C. Booth Historic National Fish Hatchery & Archives, learned last week that there is a plan in place to keep the Hatchery operating in the short-term. April Gregory, executive director of the Booth Society, received a call from Senator Tim Johnson’s (D-SD) office late Tuesday afternoon. Johnson’s staff informed Gregory that Johnson pressed Mike Conner, the nominee for Deputy Secretary of Interior, about the pending hatchery closures nationwide, specifically D.C. Booth, during Connor’s confirmation hearing. Connor currently serves as Commissioner of the Bureau of Reclamation.  This confirms that the Hatchery is safe for now; however, it doesn’t put the Hatchery in the clear for all of Fiscal Year 2014.   In the early 1990's, Johnson was instrumental in securing Congressional funding to transform the Spearfish National Fish Hatchery into the D.C. Booth facility we know today. As a result the station has become an informational and educational showcase of fish hatchery operations in the United States. “The survival of the hatchery is vital, and it is important to be sure we don’t permanently lose key federal sites while navigating current budget pressures,” Johnson said. “In response to my questions, Mr. Connor indicated that the Department of Interior has a short-term strategy to maintain funding for Spearfish and other hatcheries, and that the Department will work with members of Congress on the long-term sustainability of their budgets. This is great news for Spearfish, and I’ll continue to do all I can to keep D.C. Booth up and running.  “The Booth Society greatly appreciates Senator Johnson for his work supporting the D.C. Booth hatchery,” Gregory said. “We also appreciate the efforts of Sen. Thune and Rep. Noem, who are also working hard on our behalf.” “The Booth Society will continue doing all it can to keep the hatchery open under the continued operations of the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service.” Gregory encouraged the public to continue signing letters – new and updated letters have been added to their website at www.dcboothfishhatchery.org.
Governor announces Economic Development grants
– Gov. Daugaard announced today the award of nine grants, totaling close to $1.8 million, for economic development efforts in the state. The grants, which were approved last week by the Board of Economic Development, were awarded under the newly established Reinvestment Payment Program, Local Infrastructure Improvement Program, Economic Development Partnership Program, and the South Dakota Jobs Program. “These programs will help our communities to advance their economic development and job growth efforts,” said Gov. Daugaard. “Many people came together to create these new programs, and I am happy to see them bear fruit.”  The Local Infrastructure Improvement Program, Economic Development Partnership Program, and South Dakota Jobs Program are all part of the Building South Dakota Fund, which was created by Senate Bill 235. The Reinvestment Program was also part of Senate Bill 235, which was a comprehensive economic package that was passed this year by the state Legislature and signed by Gov. Daugaard. The Board of Economic Development, which evaluates the awards, considered 23 grant proposals. The following grants were approved: Reinvestment Payment Program (total $771,082): •Novita Aurora, LLC, Aurora S.D. - $771, 082. Local Infrastructure Improvement Program (total $694,657): •Brookings County - $400,000 •City of Sturgis - $244,357 •City of Alexandria - $50,300 Economic Development Partnership Program (total $292,600): •Belle Fourche Development Corporation - $103,000 •Southern Hills Economic Development Corporation - $56,900 •Bison Area Economic Development Corporation - $32,700 •Grow South Dakota $100,000 South Dakota Jobs Program (total $28,000): •Electronic Systems, Inc., Sioux Falls S.D. - $28,000 The Board of Economic Development will evaluate grant applications on a quarterly basis, and those applicants who do not receive grants may reapply. For more information on the Building South Dakota grant programs, and on other financing programs offered through the Governor’s Office of Economic Development, please visit www.sdreadytowork.com.

Crop insurance fall sales closing date approaches
The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Risk Management Agency reminds producers in Montana, Wyoming, North Dakota, and South Dakota that the fall sales closing date is September 30. Fall sales closing and cancellation dates are applicable for wheat (in counties with both a fall and spring sales closing date), forage production, and rye.  One important change for the 2014 crop year is the option to insure alfalfa and other  forage seed crops via written agreement in counties without an alfalfa or forage seed  program. Written agreements must be submitted through an insurance agent, and requests for the 2014 crop year must be signed by September 30, 2013.  Doug Hagel, Billings Regional Office director, reminds producers to contact their crop  insurance agent for more information on the new rules. For more information on how to find a crop insurance agent, go to www.rma.usda.gov/tools/agent.h tml .

Mountain goats find a new home in South Dakota
The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department, working in cooperation with the Utah Division of Wildlife, recently relocated 22 mountain goats from Utah to South Dakota’s Black Hills. The goats were captured from a herd in Utah’s Tushar Mountains, and are part of a study to increase genetic diversity in South Dakota’s mountain goat population. “Utah biologists used helicopters and net guns to capture the animals,” said GFP Regional Game Manager John Kanta. “Mountain goats live in high altitudes and inhabit very rough and steep terrain. Capturing these mountain goats was very challenging.” Once an animal was captured, blood was drawn, vaccinations were given, measurements were taken and a throat and nose swab was performed to test for diseases. All yearling and adult mountain goats were fitted with a radio collar and mountain goat kids were ear tagged. Goats were then loaded into wooden boxes filled with wood shavings and a block of ice to keep them comfortable and cool in preparation for their journey back to South Dakota. “The mountain goats were released into the Needles area of the Black Hills,” Kanta said. “We will be monitoring these goats for survival and transplant success and will also be using the data to enhance our aerial sightability survey for developing population estimates.” This project is one of many made possible through partnerships between GFP and non-government organizations. “The Midwest Wild Sheep Foundation and the Greater Dacotah Chapter of the Safari Club International provided financial support for radio collars and capture costs associated with this transplant,” Kanta said. “The cooperation from these partners will greatly assist GFP in managing South Dakota’s mountain goat population and their habitats.”

SDSU Extension hosts Drought Risk Management Workshops beginning Oct 8
SDSU Extension will host four Drought Risk Management Workshops for cattle, sheep and other livestock producers in Hot Springs Oct. 8, in Lemmon Oct. 9, in Gettysburg Oct. 10 and in Winner Oct. 11. "These workshops are designed for ranchers to help them develop and write drought management and mitigation plans for their own operations," said Laura Edwards, SDSU Extension Climate Field Specialist. "We are planning a hands-on workshop that will give ranchers the tools they need to create a drought plan that fits their own needs and goals." Even though much of the pasture and range areas of the state are not currently in drought, conditions can change quickly and Edwards advocates that it is always a good time to plan for it. The recent example of the 2012 drought is particularly acute for some South Dakota ranchers. Management decisions can have impacts that last long beyond the duration of the drought itself. The workshops are designed around a planning book that is available from the University of Nebraska's National Drought Mitigation Center. The book, titled "Managing Drought Risk on the Ranch," is a guide for ranchers in the Great Plains region. Edwards said this is an opportunity to learn first-hand from some of the authors and contributors of the guidebook. Cody Knutson from the National Drought Mitigation Center and Roger Gates, SDSU Range Management Specialist, will both be presenting at the workshops. Workshop content will include presentations on: monitoring weather/climate; measuring grass/forage productivity; Pasture, Range, Forage Rainfall Index insurance; rangeland best management practices; and the SD Drought Tool. "The insurance piece is especially timely," said Edwards. "Producers will need to make their insurance choices by Nov. 15 this year." Matt Diersen, SDSU Risk/Business Management Specialist, will present a researchbased method for choosing Pasture, Range, Forage insurance that is recommended by his group. These workshops are a collaborative effort between SDSU Extension and University of Nebraska - National Drought Mitigation Center, Natural Resources Conservation Service and South Dakota Grassland Coalition. Funding for the workshop series was provided by the North Central Risk Management Education Center, the USDA National Institute of Food and Agriculture, National Integrated Drought Information System, and Farm Credit Services of America. Each one-day workshop will be held from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 8, Hot Springs workshop will be held at The Nature Conservancy's Whitney Preserve, 28077 Cascade Road. Oct. 9, Lemmon workshop will be held at the SDSU Extension Regional Center in Lemmon, 408 Eighth St W. Oct. 10, Gettyburg workshop will be held at Lucy's, 117 W Commercial Ave. Oct. 11, Winner workshop will be held at SDSU Extension Regional Center in Winner, 325 S. Monroe St. The workshops are offered at no cost to participants. Free online registration is available at http://igrow.org/events/droughtrisk-management-on-the-ranchworkshop-series/. Drought planning guidebooks, rain gauges, and soil infiltration kits will be provided to participants that pre-register.

Holistic Management Workshop to be held in Eagle Butte
The South Dakota Grasslands Coalition, Ziebach and TriCounty Conservation Districts, Tatanka RC&D, and the Natural Resources Conservation Service are proud to organize another 3 day workshop on Holistic Resource Management. It will be held Tuesday, October 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. This workshop is being presented by Joshua Dukart, a land and livestock manager from Bismarck, ND. He is a Certified Educator of Holistic Management 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 Management in action. Holistic Management is a new management approach helping people improve their quality of life, generate wealth and manage 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, communities, and the natural resources we all depend on. This workshop is highly recommended for producers by past participants. Kayla Anderson, 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 outcomes to situations.” There is a cost for the workshop which includes textbook, workbook, lunch and breaks. Each ranch may bring an additional participant for an extra fee. Class size is limited to 30 people, so call now to pre-register. To pre-register or for more details, call Tatanka RC&D at 605-244-5222 Ext 3.

The well field is being located as those are the wells that pull heat out of the ground for heating the school. Some items being checked out are making sure of the frost

James Inghram, Karen Inghram and Lexy Hostetter – Water Connection: Utility connection requests were brought to the Council asking for water connections and Lexy Hostetter also asked for electric service. Mayor Haines stated he had talked to the City Attorney about the Ordinance that we currently have. It does not state anything about the size of pit you should have and other things are not in the Ordinance and thought we should table until we could revise the Ordinance. Mayor Haines stated he wasn’t against anyone having the water, just noticed that there are certain things not in the Ordinance. Justin Inghram stated we need to take care of the water pressure problem before it freezes. After much discussion, Spencer made a motion, seconded by Riley to table for two weeks after the Utility Committee meets and brings back the information that is needed to be changed or added in the Ordinance. Five – yes votes. Inghram abstained. Motion carried.

Riley made a motion, seconded by Spencer to approve Brosz Engineering to survey the land to move the fence. All yes votes. Motion carried. Pressure Switch for Water Pump House: Berndt made a motion, seconded by Lightfield to table until Donn Dupper can receive more information as to how much the labor will cost. All yes votes.
