At $220,005 the Mission Ran-
cho Viejo Rodeo is the richest
two-day event sanctioned by the
Professional Rodeo Cowboys As-
sociation and Cole Elshere’s
shared win in the saddle bronc
riding there helped make him
the week’s richest PRCA cowboy.
Period. End of story.
By the time he arrived in San
Juan Capistrano, Calif., on Aug.
25, Elshere had already had a
very good week with two wins
and a second-place finish in
PRCA rodeos. He transformed it
from good to great with an 84-
point ride on Flying U Rodeo’s
Long Walk Home that allowed
him to tie Sterling Crawley for
the championship.
“I knew that if I did good at
San Juan, I could end up dou-
bling what I had already won for
the week,” Elshere said, “but I
knew what I was up against. I
drew the same horse at San
Juan that I had there a year ago
and he bucked me off (then). I
was glad to get him again be-
cause I knew if did good on him,
I knew I’d have a chance to score
well.”
In the end, Elshere did a bit
better than double his week’s
earnings. The $7,074 he received
for his tie with Crawley at the
RMV Riding Park brought his
total for the week to $13,663,
jumping him from 12th to sev-
enth in the world standings and
locking up his second consecu-
tive berth in the Wrangler Na-
tional Finals Rodeo.
“Yeah, I think I should be OK
now,” Elshere said. “That was a
good four days. It sure helped.
All I’m trying to do now is keep
winning and keep trying to climb
the ladder.”
Actually, it was a good and
very busy week that would see
him travel by ground and air a
total of 4,638 miles to compete in
five rodeos in four states and one
Canadian province while also
finding time for ranch work and
even a bit of time with friends. It
went like this:
• Monday, Aug. 19: Met up
with some of his buddies from
his high school football days and
took a road trip from his home in
Faith, S.D., to the lake in Key-
hole State Park near Moorcroft,
Wyo.
• Tuesday, Aug. 20: Back
home in Faith, Elshere gave
shots to calves and performed
other ranch work.
• Wednesday, Aug. 21:
Jumped in the van with travel-
ing partner Troy Crowser and
made the 1,040-mile drive to
Kennewick, Wash., for the Kit-

sap Stampede. It would be the
one off note of the week, with
Elshere drawing a horse who
had trouble getting settled in the
chute. “The judges said I could
have a re-ride or I could give the
horse one more chance … I de-
cided to stay with the horse I had
and he reared up in the chutes
and slammed me into the post. It
looked worse than it was, but I
ended up with a no-score … so,
not a good start.”
• Thursday, Aug. 22: Things
pick up. A trip to Lethbridge, Al-
berta, for the Whoop-Up Days
Rodeo produces a winning 82-
point ride on Kesler Rodeo’s
Paper Clip and a check for
$2,098.
• Friday, Aug. 23: Elshere
gets a ride to Great Falls, Mont.,
and there takes a flight to Salt
Lake City for the Golden Spike
Rodeo in Tremonton, Utah. An
83-point ride allows him to finish
second to two-time World Cham-
pion Cody Wright and earn an-
other $2,198.
• Saturday, Aug. 24: Flies out
of Salt Lake City to Rapid City,
S.D., for the Range Days Rodeo,
where he has the top perform-
ance of the rodeo – in any event
– with a 90-point ride on Burch
Rodeo Company’s Iron Maiden.
Elshere celebrates by driving all
night to Denver.
• Sunday, Aug. 25: Catches
an early morning flight from
Denver to John Wayne Airport
in Orange County, Calif., arriv-
ing at 10 a.m. with a few hours
to spare before his return en-
gagement with Long Walk
Home. “The ride in Rapid City
was definitely the best one of the
bunch,” Elshere said, “but San
Juan was the hardest. That
horse is really a handful. There
was a very different style of rid-
ing those two days, but I was
able to adapt and make it all
work.”
The other champions in San
Juan Capistrano were bareback
rider Will Lowe (89 points), steer
wrestler Dean Gorsuch (3.9 sec-
onds), team ropers Aaron Tsinig-
ine and Clay O’Brien Cooper (4.3
seconds), tie-down ropers Clif
Cooper and Randall Carlisle (7.9
seconds each) and bull riders
Cole Echols and Tyler Smith (84
points each).

Faith rancher passed away Tues-

Tom Clifford Mason was born
the youngest of six children on
March 31, 1917. He grew up and
worked his whole life on his ranch
west of Faith, SD. The only time
he was away for any length of
time from the land he grew to
love, was when he served a stint
in the Navy during WW II, 1942 -
1945. In 1960 Tom married Min-
nie Smith Peltz (the girl next
door). They eventually added the
Smith place to their ranch. With
the marriage, came a ready-made
family and eventually grandchil-
dren with Minnie's children, Lor-
raine Fitzgerald and Ellwood
Peltz.
Left to mourn his passing are
his stepson, Elwood (April) Peltz,
Bremerton, WA; stepdaughter,
Lorraine (Don) Fitzgerald, Bis-
marck, ND; five step grandchil-
dren; eight step great-
grandchildren; four nieces, Au-
drey Henderson, Mobridge, SD,
Barbara Lyon, Meadow, Mary
Lee Hayden, Oshkosh, WI and
Judy Mason, Tacoma, WA; two
nephews, Dennis (Noma) Welter,

Rohrer, Lead, SD; and numerous
great nieces and great nephews.
Tom was preceded in death by

Jerry Mason; three brothers, Ray,
William (Billy) and Ron; two sis-
ters, Lila Welter and Janet
Rohrer.
In lieu of flowers, memorials

Memories of the past from
David Paul, September 19, 2012;
The Faith Independent: "It was
the summer of 1976...There was a
lot of stretch between his soiled
hat and his work boots. The horse
was attired much as its rider. The
saddle was well worn with no
extra trappings, no rope, single
rigged. The headstall tie-down
was a twine string. No stock rack!
Horse and rider were the same
color. The rider was browned by
the sun, and the horse was all
natural. There was no gleam or
shine attached to either...I am
just as much today as I was back
then, intrigued with the simplic-
ity of this rancher's management
style. I had just met my good
neighbor, Tom Mason.
Tom Mason
Funeral services for Pat Eagle
Chasing, Sr., 67, of Eagle Butte,
will be Friday, Sept 6 at 10:00
AM, MDT, at the Lakota Cultural
Center, Eagle Butte. Burial fol-
lows at 3:00 PM Friday at Black
Hills National Cemetery, Sturgis.
Meet at the 4-mile Jct. at 4:00 PM
Thursday to process to the cul-
tural center for wake services be-
ginning at 7:00 PM. Patrick
entered the spirit world August
27, 2013 in Eagle Butte.
Patrick Maurice Eagle Chasing
Sr. was born on July 9th, 1946 to
Narcisse and Bernice (Condon)
Eagle Chasing in Ft. Yates, ND.
He returned to the Spirit World
on August 26, 2013.
Pat grew up in and around
Cherry Creek, SD. He attended
grade school in Red Scaffold &
high school in Eagle Butte. To
most he was either "Herk" or
"Puggy" and he was known for a
good laugh! Whether you were
the person being picked on or the
one laughing along – everyone
was laughing.
Like his brother, Ron, Pat en-
listed in the Vietnam Conflict.
But since his brother was already
in Vietnam Pat was stationed in
Thailand. He served 6 years driv-
ing heavy machinery equipment.
After returning home, Pat worked
as dispatch for the tribal police
and later Pat & Ron worked for
the Cheyenne River Sioux Tribe
as Surveyors, surveying most of
the dams and dug-outs on the
reservation. Pat continued to
work an occasional surveying job
for Swan's Construction until a
few years ago.
Pat made a spiritual commit to
help his brother, Ron, in the
Lakota Ways. He followed his be-
liefs and helped others to under-
stand. He was a part of the
Hohwoju Drum Group and kept
the vital when he joined them.
Beading was Pat's passion. He
could whip out a checkbook cover
in two days if he had to. He had a
great eye for color and made up
amazing designs. Pat enjoyed the
people around him in his special
spot at Bingo. And only when he
didn't show up for Bingo – two
nights in a row – did someone
think there was something
wrong. He had a special bond
with his nieces Rhonda and Ron-
ica, they joked and teased each
other and argued but they shared
that bond. Fishing and hunting
with his brothers was the high-
light of the Summer and Fall.
Pat leaves behind his oldest
son, Troy Eagle Chasing Sr.,
Eagle Butte, son, Darwin, WA ,
Patrick Eagle Chasing Jr. (JoAnn
Twiggs), & daughters, Sarah,
Jannon (James) Dog Eagle, Willie
Jon Eagle Chasing (Wayne
Wright), Rapid City; Adopted

falo, WY, JoEllen Thompson,

dren, numerous aunts & uncles,
nieces & nephews and cousins.
He was preceded in death by

maternal & paternal grandpar-
ents; twin sister, Patricia Eagle

August has come to a close,
and though temperatures are
still high, fall is almost here and
students have already settled
back into their classrooms. This
time of year always brings me
back to when I was in school. I
always enjoyed school. In fact,
through seventh grade, I was at
the top of my class. Of course,
that wasn’t too difficult – I was
the only person in my class!
Much has changed since I at-
tended that one-room country
school. Back then, a gallon of gas
was 40 cents, a new house cost
around $25,000 and fewer people
went to college – about 17 per-
cent of people in the U.S. had at
least a bachelor’s degree. Now,
that number is around 28 per-
cent.
Along with the escalating
number of people seeking higher
education, the increasingly com-
petitive global economy requires
today’s workforce to have greater
skill sets and more education. In
order to succeed, our students
need to leave high school ready
for a postsecondary experience –
at a university, a technical insti-
tute or a shorter certificate pro-
gram – and, ultimately, the
workforce.
How well are we preparing
our youth in South Dakota? Re-
cent news indicates we are doing
pretty well. 
According to the state Depart-
ment of Education, 74 percent of
our students are proficient in
math and reading.
Also, South Dakota’s ACT
scores went up last year, and we
continue to outperform the na-
tional average – even though we
have one of the highest ACT par-
ticipation rates in the nation. We
also surpass the national aver-
ages in each subject:  English,
reading, math and science. 
Still, there are areas where
we can improve. Although more
of our students take the ACT
and attend college, we have a
higher than average college
dropout rate. As one factor which
limits success, some students
enter college needing remedial
help. To overcome this problem
before college, the South Dakota
Department of Education and
Board of Regents are working to
increase college readiness by of-
fering free remedial coursework.
Students don’t have to retake a
whole course, but instead can
focus on the specific components
of courses where they need some
extra help. These courses are
available to high school seniors
via the South Dakota Virtual
School.
I am proud of the quality of
education we offer here in South
Dakota. Our students do well be-
cause we have committed teach-
ers and parents who take an
active role in their children’s ed-
ucation.  As our world continues
to change, we will continue to
work toward even better solu-
tions to prepare our children for
the future. 
Here’s to a great school year!
Indian Creek Lutheran
Church has been making plans
for the celebration of its 100th
Anniversary on September 7,
2013. The festivities will begin at
5:00 pm with an evening meal to
follow. The worship service will
start at 7:00 pm.
With the Homestead Act
many people came wanting to
settle and raise families. As the
families came, the homesteaders
felt a need for Spiritual guid-
ance. There were no established
churches in the area near what
was called Indian Creek, south-
west of Chance, SD. A circuit rid-
ing preacher, Rev. R. M. Hollie,
was among the first of the
preachers who rode from Reeder,
ND to Red Elm, SD. The dis-
tance was over 100 miles. Since
there were no churches, the serv-
ices were held in homes, school
houses or other available build-
ings. Martin Monserud, as well
as T.B. Veal, was instrumental
in establishing the Church and
hosted the services for many
years.
Indian Creek Lutheran
Church was established Febru-
ary 25, 1913 as a mission church.
It remained a mission church
until 1931. As the circuit riding
preacher made his rounds the
new babies were baptized and
new members joined. In 1925,
the church purchased the
Perkins County State Bank, in
Chance, SD. The worship serv-
ices were conducted in Norwe-
gian until 1926 when English
became the official language.
Disaster struck: the bank
building burned on September 3,
1935. Once again worship was
held in a community building –
the Chance School. At this time
a new church was built. The
basement was to be the start of
the new building that would
have an above ground structure
added as the finances allowed.
The people of the community
came to worship in this little
basement church until May 19,
1963.
Disaster struck again, this
time in the form of a heavy snow-
fall in the winter of ’49, which
led to flooding of the basement.
After much discussion with the
Chance community and neighbor-
ing communities, it was decided
that more people would come to a
church built at a more accessible
spot such as the junction of High-
ways 73 and 20 South. As the at-
tendance had increased, it
became important to build again.
So it was to be: a new church.
The present church was dedicated
on May 26, 1963.
Indian Creek Lutheran Church
has 24 active families. Two ba-
bies, Quinn Baker (Bryce and
Danci) and Conrad Muller (Whit-
ney and Heinrich) have been bap-
tized into the Church family this
year. The church strives to be an
important part of its members
and to “go ye therefore and make
disciples of all nations.”
Indian Creek Lutheran Church
invites you to attend and enjoy
the festivities of its celebrating of
100 years of serving God and His
guidance. Date is Saturday, Sep-
tember 7, 2013. Fellowship begins
at 5 pm with a supper prior to the
7 pm worship.

Howard and I went to Faith
on Monday to have some chips
fixed in a windshield. It was a
very hot day for the livestock
sale or anything.  Could hardly
believe it, but by the time we got
home we had a new chip in that
poor windshield.  We had
stopped by Fogelman's to leave
some lunch for the family as they
were quite busy getting the auc-
tion lined up.  Dwayne and Zona
took lunch up on Tuesday and
Wednesday was the auction.  A
good crowd attended and it was
pretty hot but had a breeze so
you could tolerate the heat if you
found shade once in a while. All
of Glenn and Margaret kids were
there.  Dan, who has been at
home for a few years, Dave and
Barb, daughter Jessie and her
daughter and son, Brian and
Cheri and their son Brandan,
and Gwen and friend Barry, plus
other relatives from the eastern
part of the state.  Lots of visiting
was done throughout the day by
friends, neighbors and relatives.
Glenn and Margaret have an
apartment waiting for them in
Sturgis and will be moving soon
so if you have a chance, stop in
for a visit and they took the cof-
fee pot with.
East River bow antelope
hunters arrived at Dwayne and
Zona Vig's on Wednesday.  They
were successful and left to re-
turn home on Sunday.
Monday, John and OJ Heidler
took a new washing machine
into Faith for Dorothy Heidler
that OJ and Leah had picked up
for her in Rapid City on Satur-
day.
Many families gathered at the
Opal Church basement on Tues-
day to pick up the Colorado
peaches that Steven Reeve
brings up every year.
I went to Sturgis early Friday
morning to have an outfit at the
garage for some minor repair.
When it was done I went on to
Whitewood to visit our tax lady,
then back to Sturgis, on to Rapid
City then home. Dodged rain and
hail storms that stayed south of
me, but even heard of a tornado
in Custer County.  Goofy South
Dakota weather. Before I got
home a weather bulletin had
said there was hail, high winds
and rain headed for the Opal
area.  I know they got hail at the
Hugh Ingalls ranch, enough to
mess up Kari Deiters’ garden,
along with an inch of rain. We
got a whole sum of .02 of rain out
of the deal.
Marlin and Ethel Ingalls went
to Belle Fourche on Friday as
well. Fogelmans, with the help of
family, moved some of their be-
longings into Sturgis that day,
then Dave's and Brian's left for
their homes in Texas.
Dwayne and Zona Vig attened
funeral services in Sturgis on
Thursday for a classmate of
Dwayne's, David McFarland.
They stopped by for a visit and
coffee at Keith and Sue Kef-
feler's, also.
Carmen Heidler had appoint-
ments in Rapid City on Thurs-
day, also.
Travis and Chandelle Brink
and family came to visit her
folks, Dwayne and Zona Vig, on
Friday afternoon.  Hope, JT,
Kelsey and Brixie Vig joined
them all for a campfire supper.
The Brinks spent some time
sorting through things they had
been storing at the Vig Ranch
and returned to their home on
Saturday night.
Rod, Tracy, Nathan, Jason,
Justin and Howard and Kay In-
galls all spent Saturday at the
Bestgen Sod Farm for the Mark
Park Benefit fundraiser. Lots of
activity took place with horse
shoe and volleyball tournaments
and other fun activities for
young and old and there was
LOTS of "young" there. They had
concessions going all day and a
silent auction as well.  We left
there fairly early in the after-
noon and stopped in at Robert
and JoDee Ingalls home for a
brief visit with them and Chuck
and Ula Fowlkes, James Ingalls
who was home from his job for a
visit as well as Tashonna Frye
and Laura Meyer, Brycen and
Nevaeh. They were having a
birthday celebration for Timmy
and Jessica, the late August
birthdays. I had a real good baby
fix that day getting to hold 3
great grandkids that are 6
months and younger.
Sunday afternoon, Mike
Reeve and Marty Vig went to
Nisland to a 65th wedding an-
niversary open house for parents
of a classmate, Don and Phyliss
Seaman.
Dinner guests after church at
the Sam Cowles home were
Duane Wood, Marty Vig and the
Larry Schuelke family.
Dwayne and Zona Vig took in
the Newell Labor Day celebra-
tion on Monday as I am sure
other neighbors did.  Nathan In-
galls left to go back to Williston,
ND on Monday to start the new
month of work on night shift and
Justin headed back to Rapid
City for work.
I missed chatting with Ber-
nice Lemmel this week but know
she got several boxes of peaches
and Spud has been picking wild
plums for her to do up so know
she kept herself busy. She had
told me earlier in the week that
Dale Young had stopped by for
coffee and a visit and told them
that a former neighbor  Billie
Jean Mikudik Baker had died
from her battle with cancer. Our
condolences go out to her hus-
band and sons and family.
Nasty weather moved
through the area last Tuesday
night dumping lots of rain north
of us. There were reports of any-
where from 1 1/2” to 6 or 8” (in
the Bison area). And some hail.
Some areas north didn’t get
much of anything. We had quite
the lightning show here in town
but that was all we got out of it.
The heat remained with us all
week, although.
We lost another one of our old-
timers. Tom Mason, long-time
Faith area rancher, passed away
early Tuesday morning. His
service was held this past Tues-
day at the Faith Community
Center. Our condolences to his
family and his many friends.
Condolences also to the family
of Audrey Gerlach. Audrey was
the sister of Gene Lund. They
were involved in an vehicle acci-
dent last Monday in Rapid City
that claimed her life and put
Gene in the hospital. Gene is still
in the hospital and I’m sure
would appreciate cards and vis-
its from his friends.
Bob Fischbach from Omaha,
NE and Kathy Schucchardt
spent the Labor Day weekend
with Dave and Eldora Fischbach
at their home in Rapid City.
They arrived Saturday morning
and left Labor Day Monday.
Danny Miles spent Labor Day
weekend with his mom Esther
and brother Ron at Medora, ND.
Penny Collins and son Devin
came Friday evening from Man-
dan, ND to spend the Labor Day
weekend with her parents
Gordie and Kathy and sister
Stacy. Penny and Devin camped
out and got the big fire pit out
and going. Saturday night, Jay
Collins joined them for a camp
out and S’Mores. Gordie, Kathy
and Stacy hosted a BBQ Sunday
evening for Penny, Devin, Jon,
Katrina, Jay, Kate and Jordan

HOT, HOT, HOT describes
the weather around here.
Thankfully it cooled a little Sat-
urday. We’ll see what Mother
Nature has in store for the
month of September. We have
had many days that started with
fog so it will be interesting to see
what 90 days from that brings.
Saturday morning we re-
ceived word of the passing of my
dad’s sister, Gladys Boivin Hall
of Bakersfield, California. She
was born in 1919 at home at
Marcus, South Dakota. She has
been afflicted with Alzheimer’s
for a couple years now. Of the 11
Edwin and Anna Thompson chil-
dren, 4 are still living, Irvin,
Francis (Bud), Ruth, and Ros-
alie.
Funeral services for Mert
Chalmers were held at Timber
Lake Saturday, Mert was a
brother to George Chalmers.
Many people knew George, Va-
lerie, Greg and Amber when
they lived near Red Scaffold and
the kids attended Faith School.
Mert was married to a former
classmate of mine from Timber
Lake, Shirley Meyers. Sympathy
is extended to the families.
Jim Nelson co-owner, pub-
lisher of the Timber Lake Topic
is in the hospital with cancer.
I’m guessing the Bismarck hos-
pital but don’t know that for
sure. I’m sure Cathy and Jim
could use any support and words
of prayer. Jim is well known for
his interest and knowledge of
fossils.
Many area folks attended the
sale for Glen and Margaret Fo-
gelman on Wednesday. The Fo-
gelmans lived on and owned
what at one time was George
and Garnet (Satter) Hlavka’s
place near Opal.
Wednesday, Harold and I
were in Rapid City for repairs.
We also picked up some furni-
ture I had purchased.
Thursday, I rode to Pierre
with Lacey Wondercheck and
boys. Quirt had to have a hear-
ing aid tube replaced and Rio
had his ears checked.
One of the first things we do
at my house is get on the com-
puters, Harold to check weather
and grain prices, me to check
Facebook.  I have so enjoyed all
the “first day of school” photos
that so many have posted. We
often see smiling little faces ac-
companied by new clothes, shoes
and backpacks. Great expecta-
tions for a new year filled with
learning. I wonder how soon
some of those same little faces
are ready to stay home. I have
asked children how they like
school and the parent answers
for them. Sometimes the parent
will say he/she really doesn’t like
school, they don’t do this or
that…My child would be much
better off if…and so on. Yep
folks, you are making sure your
kid doesn’t like school or the
teacher because you told them
they don’t! After they hear you
say this about so many times
you’ve got them convinced and
they show that attitude in their
classroom behavior and work!
Shame on you for making things
harder for your child. Let the
child answer when he’s asked.
Find out what he really thinks.
Visit with someone at school
without the kid and talk things
over. Sometimes there are things
going on that you and the
teacher may not know until you
listen to the kids. Any teacher
worth her salt is up and around
the class, listening and monitor-
ing. There is an old saying, “A
teacher on her feet is worth 100
in her seat.” I used to enjoy put-
ting out a choice of chairs at par-
ent teacher conferences. Two
were close to me, two were across
the table. I observed that par-
ents who felt like their child was
not doing well sat across the
table while the “good” student’s
parent sat close to me. Some-
times in the classroom I would
allow the kids to move their
desks wherever they wanted in
the room as long as it did not
block the door and we could get
around. We only did this for a
day. Here again, the child who
had troubles would often sit near
the door. Silly things to notice
but it gives an idea of what you
are dealing with. Teachers and
parents need to be partners so
both must make the effort. Best
of luck for a new year.
School is officially in full
swing in Meade 46-1 School Dis-
trict. The hottest week of the
summer moved in as students
and teachers settled in to the
new school year. Schools were
dismissed early last week be-
cause of the hot temperatures
and lack of air conditioning in
some schools. However, the
Atall School and possibly others
with air conditioning held school
for the full day.
The weekend cooled off nicely
making Labor Day activities
much more comfortable. How-
ever, temperatures creeped back
up into the 90s on Monday after-
noon.
Tammy Basil spent the week
at the State Fair working taking
part in many activities involving
beef, sheep, etc. that promote
agriculture. She assisted in the
beef cookoffs and was a great
help to Shantel Krebbs as she
competed against Lucus Lentch,
ourSD Secretary of Agriculture.
Larry and Sandy Rhoden en-
joyed watchingthe cook-off on
Saturday. Tammy did an excel-
lent job of cutting up veggies and
helping with the meal, however
Lentch was declared the winner.
Larry Rhoden took part in the
Legislative Beef Show at the
State Fair on Saturday. Larry
was paired with a 4-H boy
named Jacob who gave him a
crash course in showing a calf.
Larry made it into the finals and
also answered his trivia question
correctly. It was a great first ex-
perience for Larry and other leg-
islators and the students who
taught them did a great job and
represented the 4-H program
very well.
For the bow hunters with an-
telope tags it is already that time
of year. Tristen Rhoden and
Justin Keffeler began their hunt
last weekend.
As a reminder there will be a
baby shower and wedding
shower this Saturday, Sept. 8 at
the Community Baptist Church
in Union Center. Neveah Jo is
the daughter of Laura and Ben
Meyer. James Ingalls is engaged
to Tashonna Frye and they will
will be having an October wed-
ding. This a a time for celebra-
tion so please come and celebrate
these special occasions between
1:30 -3:30 pm for this open house
event on Saturday.
The History and Heritage
Book Club tips its cowboy hat to
South Dakota’s western heritage
at its September meeting.
“Dakota Cowboy” by Ike
Blasingame will be discussed
when the book club meets at 7
p.m. CDT on Tuesday, Sept. 10,
at the Casey Tibbs South Dakota
Rodeo Center, 210 Verendrye
Dr., Fort Pierre. The event is
free and everyone is welcome to
attend.
“We’re pleased to help com-
memorate this aspect of South
Dakota’s history. In addition to
discussing ‘Dakota Cowboy’,
local cowboy Willie Cowan will
speak and Plains Folk will per-
form cowboy songs,” said
Michael Lewis, president of the
South Dakota Historical Society
Foundation.
The foundation is the non-
profit fundraising partner of the
South Dakota State Historical
Society and, along with the
SDSHS Press, sponsors the His-
tory and Heritage Book Club.
The meeting will be a forerun-
ner of the Dakota Western Her-
itage Festival, which takes place
on Sept. 14-15 at the Fort Pierre
Expo Center. An organizer of the
festival, Gary Heintz, will serve
as discussion leader at the His-
tory and Heritage Book Club.
In “Dakota Cowboy,”
Blasingame writes of his life as a
cowboy for the Matador Land
and Cattle Company in South
Dakota from approximately
1904-1912. When the Bureau of
Indian Affairs decided to lease
the Cheyenne River Reservation,
the Matador successfully bid on
tracts. Blasingame stayed in
South Dakota after the Matador
left, owning a ranch near the Lit-
tle Moreau River.
Cowan grew up near High-
Cowboy life to be celebrated by
History and Heritage Book Club
more, where his father Art
traded, bought, sold and trained
horses. Cowan became active in
rodeo and went to college in
Texas on a rodeo scholarship. He
was active in rodeo when he re-
turned to live in South Dakota
and was involved with Fort
Pierre’s 4th of July rodeo for
many years. In 2006, Cowan was
chosen as “Rodeo Cowboy Great”
by the Casey Tibbs South
Dakota Rodeo Center.
“Dakota Cowboy” is available
at the Heritage Stores at the
Cultural Heritage Center and
the Capitol. Book club members
receive a 10-percent discount
and South Dakota State Histori-
cal Society members receive an
additional 5-percent discount
when they purchase the book at
either Heritage Store.

This week was blistering hot
with no rain, at least not here.
Our thermometer only lacked a
degree from hitting triple digits
several times this week and reg-
istered in the nineties every day.
Slim Buttes Lutheran had the
annual campout and picnic in
the Slim Buttes last weekend
and they canceled the regular
hike to various sites in the
buttes because it was just too
hot. I stopped at the Reva Mall
on my way home from the picnic
and the thermometer at the
store registered 101 degrees.
Most of our family came home
for Labor Day weekend. Teri and
Mike and boys left Minnesota on
Monday and came to the ranch
Thursday to spend a few days
with Grandma and Grandpa.
They took Angie, Kanon and
Brinley out to supper in Rapid
City Wednesday evening, but
didn’t see Thad because he’s still
working in Texas. Sage and
Alaina and girls came down to
the football game in Buffalo Fri-
day night and stayed for the
rodeo on Saturday. Sandy Dan
joined us at the rodeo Saturday,
but went home to get some hay-
ing done that evening. Guy and
Megan and boys came from
Wyoming to the rodeo on Satur-
day and spent the night at the
ranch.
I was on ambulance duty at
the rodeo Saturday and we only
had one casualty. The winner of
last year’s bull dogging event,
Seth Murphy, caught a hoof to
the lip and had to be taken to the
clinic to get stitched back to-
gether in time to make it in to
the finals. I’m pretty sure he
wouldn’t have bothered with the
stitches if it meant not being
able to finish the rodeo. Clint
Doll won the steer wrestling
championship with Seth coming
in second!
Wolves are back in the news.
Last Saturday, 16-year-old Noah
Graham was preparing to fall
asleep on the beach outside a
tent in the campground at the
West Winnie Campground on
Lake Winnibigoshish in north
central Minnesota when he was
attacked by a grey wolf. The wolf
clamped its jaws onto his skull
and wouldn't let go. Noah's fa-
ther said the attack was quiet
and sudden. "The wolf just came
up behind Noah, he didn't hear
anything, and it just grabbed
him by the back of the head and
wouldn't let go," Graham said.
The young man managed to
pry the wolf’s jaws open and es-
cape, leaving a laceration on the
rear of his skull that required 17
staples to close. In addition, he
has several puncture wounds be-
hind his left ear.  The wolf was
killed by government trappers
and taken to the University of
Minnesota for rabies testing.
Following aggressive wolf
depredation all summer, the Sid-
doway Sheep Company, head-
quartered near Terreton, Idaho,
received a massive blow in the
early hours of August 17, when
members of the Pine Creek wolf
pack attacked and killed 119
lambs and 57 ewes on a summer
allotment six miles south of Vic-
tor, Idaho. The slaughter was
just for fun because out of the
176 sheep killed, the hindquar-
ters of only one lamb was eaten
by the wolves.
My bill to allow the killing of
wolves in South Dakota became
law on July 1st, but until USFW
takes the wolf off the Endan-
gered Species list in the lower 48
states, it’s still illegal to kill a
wolf in western South Dakota.
USFW plans to remove the wolf
from the Endangered Species list
so if you haven’t filed your com-
ment do so NOW. Go to the fed-
eral rulemaking site at
www.regulations.gov and submit
your comment on the Gray Wolf:

11.
I’ll leave you with this: 
Mike and Bill are hanging out
in the lone bar in a small town in
northern Idaho, when a local
rancher walks in carrying a wolf
pelt.
"Good work!" says the bar-
tender. He pops the cash register
open, pulls out a wad of bills, and
counts them out into the
rancher's outstretched hand.
After the rancher leaves, Mike
asks the bartender, "What was
that all about?"
The barkeep says, "Haven't
you boys heard? We got us a real
wolf problem and the govern-
ment ain't done a thing about it.
Why, just last week, a pack of
the varmints came onto my prop-
erty and killed all my chickens.
Siddoway’s lost 176 sheep to
wolves and ol' Man Miller down
the road lost 15 cows to the
bloodthirsty beasts! They're vi-
cious and they gotta be stopped.
So I'm offerin' a bounty - a hun-
dred dollars to anybody who
brings in a wolf pelt."
Mike and Bill look at each
other, and immediately race out
of the bar to go hunt wolves.
After wandering around the
hills for several hours, they fi-
nally spot a lone wolf in the dis-
tance. Mike takes aim with his
rifle and shoots the wolf dead.
The two sprint over to where the
carcass lay, and Mike gets busy
with the pelt.
Suddenly, Bill says, "Hey,
Mike, look."
"Not now," says Mike, "I'm
busy."
Bill tugs on Mike's sleeve and
says, "Mike, I think you RE-
ALLY ought to see this."
"Not now!" Mike says again.
"Can't you see I've got a hundred
dollars in my hands?"
Bill's voice starts to waver.
"Mike, please, just look!"
Mike stops what he's doing
and looks up: The two men are
surrounded by a pack of wolves -
at least fifty in all, every one of
them growling, drooling, gnash-
ing their teeth, and licking their
chops.
Mike takes in the sight and
gasps: "Wow, Bill...We're gonna
be rich!"
As human West Nile virus
cases continue to rise a state
health official urges South
Dakotans to use mosquito repel-
lent and take other precautions
to protect themselves.
“South Dakota has the high-
est number of human West Nile
cases in the nation as well as the
highest number of the more seri-
ous neuroinvasive cases,” said
Lon Kightlinger, state epidemi-
ologist for the Department of
Health. “Neuroinvasive disease
can be particularly serious for
the elderly and those with health
conditions such as cancer, dia-
betes, and high blood pressure or
a history of alcohol abuse.”
As of Aug. 6, South Dakota
had reported 21 human West
Nile cases, followed by California
with 18. Ten of South Dakota’s
cases were neuroinvasive, while
the next highest were Minnesota
and Mississippi with eight cases
each.
Kightlinger said South
Dakota has also reported 172
WNV-positive mosquito pools.
“Cleary the virus is circulat-
ing in our state so people need to
get in the habit of remembering
repellent for all their outdoor ac-
tivities, especially now that
school is approaching with its
fall sports season,” said
Kightlinger. “Parents and
coaches need to make sure their
student athletes use repellent for
those outdoors practices and
events.”
To prevent mosquito bites and
reduce the risk of WNV:
* Use mosquito repellents
(DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon
eucalyptus, or IR3535) and limit
exposure by wearing pants and
long sleeves in the evening.
* Limit time outdoors from
dusk to midnight when Culex
mosquitoes are most active.
* Get rid of standing water
that gives mosquitoes a place to
breed.
* Support local mosquito con-
trol efforts.

mation on the Web at

Each year on Labor Day, we
take time to reflect on the pro-
ductivity of America’s workers
and our responsibility as a na-
tion to support their efforts.
This year, as we gather to cel-
ebrate, Congress has a timely op-
portunity to create an even
stronger American workforce for
generations to come. They can do
so by fixing America’s broken im-
migration system.
The broad impacts that immi-
gration reform would have for
our economy are well docu-
mented. According to the non-
partisan Congressional Budget
Office and Social Security Office
of the Chief Actuary, the biparti-
san Senate immigration reform
bill would boost our economy by
3.3 percent, reduce the deficit by
a projected $850 billion and add
nearly $300 billion to our Social
Security system by the end of the
decade.
But immigration reform
would also address critical labor
issues. Today’s broken system
leaves millions of workers in the
shadows – a dangerous situation
for these workers and their fam-
ilies – and provides no clarity for
U.S. employers, the majority of
whom want to do the right thing.
At a time when we should be
providing rules that empower
American productivity, today’s
broken immigration system only
furthers uncertainty.
This is especially true for agri-
culture. Farmworkers drive an
industry that is directly related
to one in 12 American jobs.
They’re in the fields as crops are
planted, cared for and harvested.
They’re in packing houses and
processing facilities.  They help
get food to markets and stores
that ends up on kitchen tables
across the country.
About half of these workers
are unauthorized, and many
more are employed under a tem-
porary worker program that is
difficult for farmers and farm-
workers alike to understand. In
the years to come, the resulting
instability in our agricultural
workforce threatens productivity
on farms and ranches, and im-
pacts rural communities where
agriculture is a thriving part of
their economies.
The commonsense immigra-
tion reform measure passed in
June by the U.S. Senate, with bi-
partisan support, would provide
a comprehensive set of rules to
ensure a stable and adequate
workforce for agriculture. It ex-
pands and reforms the tempo-
rary worker program to allow a
three-year visa for agricultural
workers, while enacting a path-
way to citizenship for temporary
workers who are committed to
continue working in agriculture.
And it provides a fair opportu-
nity to earn U.S. citizenship for
those who are in our country
without authorization – a
process that will require going to
the back of the line, settling
taxes and paying fines for those
who want to earn citizenship.
The result would be a modern
system that makes sense. It
would bring millions of farm-
workers out of the shadows and
give them a fair chance to strive
for the American dream. It
would help farmers and ranchers
focus on growing more and ex-
panding their business. It would
give agriculture the people
power to keep driving economic
growth and creating jobs.
This Labor Day, I’m hopeful
that Congress can find a way to
solve this modern labor chal-
lenge facing our nation. We have
a long history in America of sup-
porting those who work hard –
and Congress has the chance to
make even more progress by
passing commonsense immigra-
tion reform.
The Prairie Doc Perspective
Dr. Richard Holms, MD
Human beings love to play.
The Center For Disease Control
(CDC) has recently reported that
participation in sports, recre-
ation, and exercise (or SRE) has
greatly increased in our Ameri-
can culture.
We’re talking sports such as
organized grade school, junior
high, high school, and college
athletics, and also backyard
pickup games of volleyball, bas-
ketball, football, hockey, tennis,
and soccer; recreation such as
swimming, sailing, waterskiing,
surfing, hunting, touring, hik-
ing, and playground activity;
and exercise such as biking, ski-
ing, running, weightlifting, Pi-
lates, Zumba, and Yoga.
We humans naturally seek
out sports to try to measure our-
selves against our competition;
look for recreational activity out-
side of the routines of daily liv-
ing to refresh the soul; and
search for exercise to enhance
physical fitness and prevent the
diseases of aging and affluence.
All three result not only in en-
hanced emotional satisfaction
and growth, but also in improved
strength, fitness, health and
wellness.
However, as with all activities
of change, there comes a risk,
and in sports, recreation, and ex-
ercise there is the possibility for
injury. The CDC reports that in
the US more than 10,000 people
receive care in emergency rooms
every day associated with in-
juries sustained doing SRE ac-
tivities, and often these injuries
stop further motion, at least for
a while.
My orthopedic doctor friend
loves playing a morning basket-
ball pickup game with folks from
their 20s to 70s. But over the
years he has pulled tendons, torn
cartilage and muscles, and
twisted ankles doing it. Un-
countable friends and patients,
mostly men, each fall and early
winter, worship walking fields of
corn, shelterbelts, and sloughs in
the hunt for the beguiling, wily,
and obscure South Dakota
pheasant. But these folks com-
monly come in with everything
from back pain, groin tendinitis,
to “pleasemake sure it is not my
heart” chest pain. And numerous
running club members compete
year after year in the Brookings
Marathon and other races
throughout the country. But al-
ways there are runners not well
enough prepared, resulting in
heat injury, muscle spasms,
plantar fasciitis, and more.
To prevent injury, the CDC
advises beginning with the right
equipment for the specific activ-
ity; starting slow and building
condition gradually; listening to
your body and not overdoing it in
the heat of the moment; and al-
lowing for time to stretch, rest,
and recover at the end of the
event or exercise.
Participation in sports, recre-
ation, and exercise is to celebrate
living. May we all regularly
savor
this celebration and do it safely.

Alison Grueb had her journalism students do articles on each of
the sports just to preview the season. We hope to have the football
article in next week’s issue.
Last year, the Lady Long-
horns had a successful 25-5 sea-
son but finished just short in the
district championship game. As
the Lady Longhorns are missing
only four players from last year’s
team, they appear ready to make
another successful run and pos-
sibly exceed their prior record.
In a recent interview, Lady
Longhorn head coach Ali Grueb
gave her insights about the up-
coming season. “While we lost
four significant starters from
last year, this year’s players
have some big shoes to fill, but I
look for them to get the job done”
said Coach Grueb.
There are only two returning
starters from last year: Shanna
Selby and Karli Kilby. Although
there are only two returning
starters, one additional senior,
Maddy Vance, will be instru-
mental on the team. “We should
get strong leadership from these
three, especially where two of
them are setters,” Coach Grueb
said when asked about her sen-
iors. “It may take us awhile to
find the right combination of
players as the younger players
are moving up and learning our
systems. We don’t have a lot of
height but what we lack in
height we make up for in quick-
ness.”
During the interview the sen-
iors and the coach were asked
about who they thought would
be their toughest competition,
they all said: Lemmon, Bison,
and Harding County. While
each of these teams kept a few of
their integral players, the Lady
Longhorns should be evenly
matched. The seniors were asked
what would help them get fur-
ther than they did last year.
They all said; that Lady Long-
horns need to have the confi-
dence in each other and by
having faith in one another they
will be successful.
The Lady Longhorns began
the 2013 season with a bumpy
start. Three girls were injured
within the first week of practice.
However, most of them are al-
ready getting better and Coach
Grueb stated, “We started off
with some injuries but we should
be back to 100% by the time the
season gets in full swing.”
The Lady Longhorns are just
beginning their season and they
have had some bumps in the
road to success. They are getting
past those bumps and have a
great focus on winning. With
everyone there supporting them
and cheering them on they can
achieve greatness! Good luck
Lady Longhorns on your season!
The cross country team has 11
runners this year. The returning
lettering runners are Shayna
Engel, Brooke Enright, and
Jacob Ulrich. Shayna Engel has
been a runner for a total of 7
years. So far there has been no
injuries, but they all said the
heat has been affecting them.
Coach Gustafson stated that
2013-14 Volleyball team – Back row: Shelby Sires, Ellen Johnson, Bonnie Lutz, Penny Welter, Tori
Simonson, Michaelah Martin, Brandi Enright, Karisa Carmichael, Brittney Ostrander. Front row: Kaeli
Carmichael, Brooklyn Schauer, Katie Bogue, Shanna Selby, Karli Kilby, Maddy Vance, Abbie Wicks, Kassidy
Inghram

IMPORTANT DATES TO RE-
MEMBER:
September 16 – Last day to
sign up for DCP
September 30 – Last day to
purchase coverage for fall
planted NAP crops
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.

Months of persistent drought
in 2012, a cold, wet spring in
2013 and a reduction in habitat
have impacted pheasant brood
counts, according to a report re-
leased today by the South
Dakota Game, Fish and Parks
Department. But officials note
that South Dakota will still offer
the best pheasant hunting expe-
rience in the country, with more
than 1.1 million acres of public
land available for pursuing birds
within the state’s main pheasant
range.
The department’s annual
brood count surveys the number
of pheasants per mile as a means
to track pheasant numbers over
time. The actual population size
is estimated after the pheasant
hunting season ends, with addi-
tional information gathered from
hunter surveys and a winter
rooster-to-hen ratio survey.
The 2013 report indicates an
index of 1.52 pheasants per mile,
down from 4.19 pheasants per
mile last year.
“The annual brood count pro-
vides us with a year-over-year
analysis tool,” said Travis Runia,
GFP’s lead pheasant biologist.
“Our numbers may be down from
last year, but hunters will still
be able to find birds."
GFP conducts the brood route
survey each year on select
stretches of roads around the
state. All pheasants are counted
along each route, with particular
attention to the number of
broods.
“Much of the northern Great
Plains experienced the same
weather and habitat factors that
impacted our brood counts,”
Runia said.
Runia noted that lower brood
counts in 1992 and 1997 still re-
sulted in almost one million
pheasants harvested in South
Dakota each year. Since 1992,
the state has added 350,000
acres of public access within the
main pheasant range, expanding
hunting opportunities.
The 2013 pheasant season
opens Oct. 19 and runs through
Jan. 5, 2014. The Youth Pheas-
ant season will run from Oct. 5 –
9 and the Resident Only season
Oct. 12 - 14.

Plant trees for wildlife
using WHIP
The Natural Resources Con-
servation Service (NRCS) is
holding an abbreviated sign-up
for the Wildlife Habitat Incen-
tive Program (WHIP). This is a
rare opportunity for you to sign-
up, get approved and be ready to
plant trees and shrubs for
wildlife next spring. The applica-
tion deadline is September 6, ap-
plications will be ranked by
September 12, pre-approved by
September 13 and money obli-
gated to contracts by September
25.
WHIP is a voluntary program
for developing or improving high
quality wildlife habitat.
Through WHIP the NRCS pro-
vides technical and financial to
private and Tribal landowners
for the development of upland,
wetland, aquatic and other types
of wildlife habitat.
The WHIP program provides
an opportunity for landowners
that are interested in planting
shelterbelts to create wildlife
habitat. Trees and shrubs espe-
cially native species add critical
wildlife habitat to the landscape.
They provide food, cover, nesting
sites and travel corridors for
wildlife. Besides supporting a
wide variety of wildlife, trees
and shrubs enhance property, in-
come and our lives. A minimum
of 10 rows is required in a shel-
terbelt to provide wildlife habi-
tat. The types of species planted
should be specific to the needs of
the types of wildlife targeted for
benefit. Shrub rows should be lo-
cated on the outside rows of the
shelterbelt to provide diverse
cover and food.
Trees and shrubs in shelter-
belts provide wildlife food in the
form of seeds, berries, nuts,
fruits, leaves, twigs, roots, buds
and stems. It is best if shelter-
belts can be located in close prox-
imity to water as all animals
need access to good clean water.
A shelterbelt planted to a wide
variety of shrubs and trees pro-
vides a variety of cover for
wildlife from the tree canopy
down to burrows in the ground.
Properly designed and located
shelterbelts for wildlife also pro-
tect soil, crops, livestock and
buildings from harsh winds.
Over 50 bird species are known
to use shelterbelts during the
breeding season. The microcli-
mate that shelterbelts create,
enable large and small animals
to thrive and even native benefi-
cial insects to pollinate crops and
make honey more efficiently.
Diversity of vegetation in a
shelterbelt is very beneficial to
wildlife. Combining a variety of
evergreen and broadleaf trees
and shrubs that flower and fruit
throughout the growing season
benefit numerous wildlife
species. Native trees and shrubs
provide better habitat for
wildlife and are better adapted
to local growing conditions.
Planting a diversity of species re-
duces the possibilities of losing
all plants to a disease, insects or
a catastrophic event.
Other conservation practices
can be implemented with WHIP.
Examples include prairie
restoration with native grasses
and forbs, exclusion of livestock
from certain areas and develop-
ing water sources can be done if
there are wildlife benefits to
planning these practices.

cle were the National Agro-
forestry Center and the Natural
Resources Conservation Service.

tion about how to “Plant trees for

Farmland changes affect our well-
being
USDA and Extension reports
from various state universities
indicate about 70 percent of farm
land changes ownership every
generation. A familial genera-
tion is usually defined as 25
years.
About a million acres goes
into housing or other develop-
ment each year.
The U.S. has 2.3 billion acres
of land. The 2007 Census of Agri-
culture, the latest year for which
a USDA census report is avail-
able (the 2012 Census report is
coming soon), says the major
land uses were the following: for-
est (29%), grassland pasture and
rangeland (27%), cropland
(18%), parks, wildlife areas and
other special uses (14%), tundra,
swamps and uncategorized uses
(9%) and urban land (3%).
Agriculture, chiefly farming
and ranching and privately-
owned forest production, is con-
ducted on just over half of all
U.S. land. The 2012 USDA Eco-
nomic Research Service report,
Land Use, Land Value &
Tenure, states agricultural real
estate was worth $1.85 trillion
(land and agricultural struc-
tures), which was 85 percent of
the total value of U.S. farming
assets in 2010.
Is there enough agricultural
land? Several years ago a
wealthy Colorado rancher said to
me, “God made only so much
land. I buy as much of it as I can
and wait for the price to go up,
because it always does [go up].”
Interest in purchasing farm-
land has increased in recent
years as values of cropland have
increased, especially in areas
with land well-suited for agricul-
ture such as the Midwest. Ac-
cording to Iowa State University
economist, Dr. Michael Duffy,
Iowa farmers purchased 82 per-
cent of farmland for sale in 2012.
Investors purchased 18 per-
cent of available farmland in
Iowa in 2012, down from 39 per-
cent in 2005. Low interest rates
as well as high crop prices have
fueled purchases of farmland by
owner/operators.
Ownership of farmland brings
out the best--and sometimes the
worst--in agricultural people. I
have witnessed intense competi-
tion among neighbors, and even
among siblings, at farm land
auctions.
Some of the most intense dis-
putes I have attempted to help
resolve have been among sib-
lings in family farm transitions.
In these cases the parents expe-
rience emotional heartaches. In-
stead of being close and assisting
each other, the siblings and their
families have difficulty interact-
ing without anger and competi-
tion.
Hardly a week goes by that I
do not receive an email or tele-
phone call from someone indicat-
ing resentment about a family
member or neighbor who “stole”
land in a purported “sneaky”
transaction or when outbid at a
land auction.
A July 29, 2013 report by Dr.
Duffy, released through the Iowa
State University Extension, indi-
cates 30 percent of Iowa farm-
land is owned by persons over 75
years of age, and 56 percent is
owned by persons over 65 years
of age. This means the stage is
set for possible additional strife,
chiefly among family members
and neighbors, as the land
owned by aging owners becomes
available for sale over the next
few years.
How do farmers and ranchers
temper their competition for
land? Dutch anthropologist, Dr.
Lizzy van Leeuwen, says farm-
ers’ identity is tied closely to the
land. “Land represents who
farmers are and what they are.”
Lizzy stayed at our home for
ten days in June this year. In our
discussions we wondered, “Is it
‘worth it’ to build long-term re-
sentments among neighbors and
family members over ownership
of land?
We couldn’t arrive at an an-
swer, but we pondered starting
an international study group
that looks at the deep emotional
ties to agricultural land and as-
sociated repercussions, such as
family dissolution and suicide
among farmers whose possession
of land is threatened.
As a provider of behavioral
healthcare to farm and ranch
people, I see many negatives
from winning unnecessarily am-
bitious battles for possession of
land for agricultural uses, but I
could be wrong. On the negative
side, I see too much hurt among
farm families and neighbors
wrangling over land ownership.
They often take their pain
with them into their golden
years and face death feeling im-
portant matters are unresolved.
Their physical and emotional
well-being suffer from the anger
they harbor.
On the other hand, having land
to farm assures ownership of the
most essential component for
producing necessities for life:
food, fiber and renewable biofu-
els. It is possible to own consid-
erable land and still be happy as
individuals and well-liked by
family members, neighbors and
the surrounding community.
Land owners, regardless of
the size of their operations, who
improve its productivity over
time are models whom other
farmers emulate. These success-
ful farmers usually also look out
for the welfare of their neigh-
bors, helping them in times of
need. They regularly protect the
air, water and any other re-
sources needed to farm.
Successful landowners who
share their good fortune as con-
tributors to worthy causes in
their communities, such as
buildings, events and projects,
are appreciated by everyone.
They portray what all society
needs to thrive: a willingness to
share more because they have
more to share.
