In it for the students, positive dedication Eisenbraun captures state technology leadership award
also to have a leadership role in where we go with technology.” While attending Black Hills State University Eisenbraun was able to gain quite a bit of experience working in the programming department at the college. Even though he had a strong foundation with technical functions, learning all the hardware and networking has been the most challenging with this position. “In this position there have been a lot of new challenges. You definitely feel the pressure when there’s a problem and over 400 people are waiting on you to get it fixed,” Eisenbraun said, “Luckily everyone is very patient. And I’ve learned that if I can’t get it fixed, at least I do know who to contact to get it fixed,” he said with a smile. Although among the challenges also comes the rewards, which are the growth and expansions of technology. “Changes with technology can sometimes be a little scary, but the support from the community, school board, staff and the students has been tremendous,” said Eisenbraun. “Without all the support, the job would be so much more difficult.” When the district began advancing the technology department there was one computer for every student in grades nine through twelve. Since then it has broaden to include students in grades sixth through eighth and in the lower grades, there is one computer for every two students. “My personal goal is to hopefully see our district extend and provide one computer to every student from kindergarten to the senior class.” Eisenbraun stated. “To help the students in the beginning of their education and then see them graduate and to know they are leaving our school with a good knowledge of technology and to be able to effectively use it, is very gratifying.” Not only is Eisenbraun able to contribute to the education of the students within the school building, but he is also able to help plant seeds of growth on the football field. “Being the football coach you are able to connect with kids in a completely different manner,” Eisenbraun stated. “Encouraging them to work hard, seeing them work through different issues that arise and then being able to see the lessons they’ve learned on the field and apply them to their life, that’s what it’s all about. “Winning is great and I’ll take a win anytime, but to see the students grow, it can’t get any better than that.” “Thinking back, I had a teacher in high school who I looked up to with great admiration,” said Eisenbraun. “He was my computer and business teacher and also coached us on the football field. And look at me know.” he concluded with a smile. The dedication that Eisenbraun has shown has truely benefited the youth, but his concern for the students is evident by the response and respect that the student display towards him. “You never know who it will affect or when it will happen, you just want to try to have a positive impact,” he said. “I’ve been blessed to have the opportunity to work with the kids and be a part of the community.” On Tuesday, April 17 Chad Eisenbraun was presented the 2012 Technology Director award at the TIE Conference for his commitment to education and technology.

Horizons review committee update
~ by Robyn Jones ~ The Kadoka Horizons Committee held a meeting on Wednesday, May 2. Recently Horizons has contributed $2,500 to the Kadoka Buffalo Stampede committee for the fence at the entrance of the rodeo arena, while the committee purchased the entrance sign. The Kadoka Buffalo Stampede would like to additional rail to the fence, but definite plans have not been determined. Two trees were also purchased for the Kountry Kousins 4-H Club that were planted by the welcome sign on the west edge of town. Last fall ten picnic tables were purchased for individuals or groups to rent. Ads and contact information are in the Kadoka Press. Currently the tables are being stored at Hogen’s Hardware. Discussion was held on purchasing a storage building to keep the tables in. Information will be collected and presented at the next meeting. A city-wide spring clean up was discussed. The Horizons committee members will be offering their assistance to possibly help community members during this time. With spring and the warm weather here, hosting block parties is encouraged. Anyone who would like to host a block party and consider projects they could do to improve their block, is encourage. Groups who are interested or would like more details, please contact Patty Groven. City-wide rummage sale in Kadoka is set for Sat., June 2.

2012 Technology Director award …
was presented to --courtesy photos
~ by Robyn Jones ~ Do you have an individual in your school district who goes above and beyond, and deserves recognition for the outstanding commitment they show to the education community? An individual who has demonstrated outstanding achievement in implementing technology to improve K-12 education? These were the questions asked by the Technology and Innovation in Education (TIE) when looking for someone who is worthy to receive the Technology Leadership Award that was to be presented at the Annual TIE Conference held in Sioux Falls on April 15-17. Nominations for the award were received from school districts throughout the state including the Kadoka Area School District, who nominated Technology Director Chad Eisenbraun. Graduating from Black Hills State University with a business education degree and a minor in computers, Eisenbraun came to the Kadoka School in fall 2001 to teach business and computer classes. “I’m not sure what persuaded me to pursue an education degree,
I’ve just always known that I like to work with kids,” Eisenbraun said, “but I do know it was a good choice, because I love to teach.” In July 2009 the opportunity came for Eisenbraun to fill the technology position. Deciding to take the technology director position was difficult to do. “I love teaching, but I also love the challenge of the technology,” Eisenbraun said. “Having this position has given me both the opportunity to continue to work with so many students, and just not restricted to those in my class, but
The best of both worlds … working with students and promot-
ing technology within the school district. Chad Eisenbraun assists Herbie O’Daniel with his computer assignment.

The signs are placed along I90 east and west of Kadoka. Some members felt the design was too similar to the last signs and would like a newer fresh look. Belinda Mitchell asked if other individuals could make the design and submit it for printing.

Eisenbraun letter of nomination
Editor’s Note: Following is the nomination letter for Chad Eisenbraun. Kadoka Area School District is pleased to nominate Chad Eisenbraun as the 2012 K-12 Technology Leader. Mr. Eisenbraun came to the Kadoka Area School District as a teacher in the fall of 2001; he has served as the district’s technology director since July 2009.

Mr. Eisenbraun is always conscious of the changes in technology and makes an effort to prepare our students for the ever changing world. He uses his position as an opportunity to teach students responsibility and to hold them accountable for their computer usage. Mr. Eisenbraun has implemented “Tech Tuesday” in our school. Tech Tuesday is a weekly morning 30 minute session on a variety of technology topics and is held before regular morning classes begin.

In addition to his district technology duties, he has provided technology assistance to community members. He has volunteered his time to transport students to activities. Students respond positively to Chad because of his consistent, caring and high expectation attitude. Students rise to gain his approval. This is most evident in his coaching/mentoring as the high school football coach. His connections with students have inspired them to make choices for their future – where some didn’t even realize they had a choice. Others have made positive changes in their lives – things we don’t always know or see, but the student’s attitude and dedication reveal a change. Overall he is an exceptional example of a role model for students. His job provides him the opportunity to open their eyes to the world of technology, but more importantly to make connections with students. Please consider Chad Eisenbraun as the 2012 K-12 Technology Leader.

Imagination in creating homes of the past …
Each fourth grader created a log cabin or a teepee as part of their projects and each used a variety of materials. Some of the accent items included real rock for the chimneys or pathways, some real catcus plants and tree branches for trees in the yards. Other projects the student did included hand sewn pillows and diaries written about daily activities. The students have been studing the life of Laura Ingalls Wilder and will be traveling to visit their orginal homestead in DeSmet, SD. --photo by Robyn Jones
Read Genesis 25:29-34 You probably read the story of Jacob and Esau today and thought, I can't believe Esau sold his birthright for The Lure of Momentary Pleasure a bowl of soup. How foolish! But let's think beyond birthrights and soup. Is there anything of true value that you are trading for something of lesser worth? In other words, what is your "bowl of soup"? Have you pursued wealth and a career at the expense of family? Maybe your busy schedule has kept you from spending time with God in His Word each day. Some people become involved in extramarital affairs, trading the well-being of their family for the satisfaction of lustful desires. Others sacrifice their health by consuming harmful or addictive substances, or even by overindulging in food. The list of ways we make foolish, shortsighted choices is endless. Some of the decisions we make today could rob us of the blessings God wants to give us. When you yield to temptation in a moment of weakness, you're actually sacrificing your future for momentary pleasure. We can't afford to live thoughtlessly, basing our decisions on immediate desires or feelings. Since the principle of sowing and reaping cannot be reversed, we need to carefully consider what we are planting. The harvest will come, and we'll reap what we have sown--and more than we've sown. Are you contemplating anything that could have serious long-term ramifications if you yield to the yearning? A wise person evaluates choices by looking ahead to see what negative consequences could follow a course of action. Don't let "a bowl of soup" hinder God's wonderful plans for you.

Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
Sometimes things look completely hopeless or impossible. I have a computer game that starts out simple and progresses in difficulty. Occasionally I get to one of the harder sets toward the end and think, “Not going to happen. I’ll never finish this in the allotted time.” Some days I don’t and have to try again. Often that occurs when I’m tired or distracted. If, however, I put my brain in gear and have at it, I can usually win despite my negative attitude. Afterwards I think, “That’s amazing. I never thought I could do it.” You’ve all, I’m sure, been through situations where hope was at a minimum. It might have to do with family or financial problems or dozens of other trials and difficulties we run into. Right now, for instance, we are struggling with our son’s health. As you may know, Chance is autistic which means he has little speech and can’t easily tell us what is bothering him or where it hurts. Secondly, he has myasthenia gravis which is a serious condition where antibodies in the blood interfere with messages from the brain to the muscles. If this goes into crisis, Chance can experience respiratory failure as has happened six times in the past although not in the last couple of years. During two of those episodes, he quit breathing entirely and had to be resuscitated. As a result, the myasthenia needs to be controlled with medicines which in turn cause problems. They badly compromise his immune system so he is a target for any bacteria that comes along. This is made worse by the fact that many of the common antibiotics are known themselves to put myasthenia into crisis so they have to be avoided. Treatment options are severely limited. At the moment, Chance is fighting about five different bacteria that are mostly found in sores on his cheeks and ears. He is on three different antibiotics to try to fix things. Two of the antibiotics are crushed and given through his stomach tube, and the other is given in twice-daily shots in the rear. It is not uncommon for our boy to be on two antibiotics at a time, but three seems excessive. As a result, our doctor feared the good bacteria in Chance’s digestive system would be killed off resulting in problems there, so he recommended giving six ounces of yogurt daily plus a B-complex vitamin. These, too, are given through the stomach tube. I probably should mention that the myasthenia has messed up Chance’s swallowing mechanism so he is fed strictly through a stomach tube with a canned liquid that is given every four hours around the clock. Medicines, too, can’t be swallowed and have to go through the tube. One additional complication is that Chance has a trach to avoid breathing shutdown when things get clogged with phlegm, even though the phlegm is suctioned out several times a day. At the moment, Chance takes over twenty pills a day. Five or six are for the myasthenia gravis. Two are for acid reflux. Eight are for pain, six are antibiotics, and one is a vitamin. Naturally, these all have to be given on a certain schedule. As a result, by the time you give him the food, some water, the pills and the yogurt, it turns into a fairly full-time job for wife Corinne and me. We have to stay right on top of things and keep a written daily record of what needs to be done and when it was actually accomplished. If things get any more complicated, we’ll probably have to go to a notebook with bigger pages. Neither is Chance able to do many other things for himself so he has to be shaved, bathed and generally cared for. Those chores fall mostly to Corinne while I deal with the ranch and try to keep the house stocked with adequate supplies. As you can see, things might sometimes look impossible. Still, we value our young son since he is a cutie and a sweetheart. We intend to keep him with us as for long as possible. We are even considering making an arduous journey to the Mayo Clinic in Minnesota since our doctor has recommended Chance have major surgery to remove his thymus. This procedure often puts myasthenia into remission. That would be a big plus. The trip there looks difficult to be sure. Around here, though, we can do the difficult right away. The impossible may take a little longer. After all, God tells us to think, “I can do everything with the help of Christ who gives me the strength I need.” He also says, “With God, everything is possible.” These assurances make it worthwhile to give the “hopeless” and the “impossible” a try.
knows? Maybe Belvidere will get back on the map for having its own “Chicken Whisperer” in the community! In other news, Chuck enjoyed the Kadoka High School Triple Crown Rodeo in Kadoka on Friday while he assisted with the ambulance crew. He also went up to Rapid City on Saturday and recertified for his EMT training. The class started at 7:30 a.m. and ended at 7:30 p.m., making for a very long day. Scott and Jodie O’Bryan held their awards night for last year’s playdays on Wednesday at the Fellowship Hall. Jodie made pizza and those who came brought a dish to share. Six families from Belvidere, Kadoka and Murdo made it over and enjoyed the evening. The Belvidere playdays will start back up on the first Tuesday of June, starting at 5:30 p.m. All kids and grown-ups are welcome to come-extra stick horses are always available if you can’t bring a four-legged one! Jodie has been keeping busy holding (or trying to hold) her barrel clinics. She did manage to get one done on Friday, but the Saturday clinic had to be canceled due to the rain. Daughter Faye was down for the weekend with her family as well. Scott and Jodie heard from son Scotty down in Ft. Worth that he has a new job as editor for the Texas Longhorn’s newsletter and etrails. He will get to use his photography skills as well. As if all that wasn’t busy enough, they also managed to squeeze in a birthday party for Frank Carlson’s son, Trey, who turned six. Branding was on the agenda for Larry and Lonny Johnston on Sunday. They didn’t have rain totals as some farther south, but the wind did blow! John and Amanda Neisner were weekend guests at Larry and Jo’s. John also helped with branding at Luke VanderMay’s.

Marjorie Anne Letellier • 462-6228 Sad facts of life: Square meals make round people. Sharon Ring accompanied Torey and the boys to the Long Valley track meet on Tuesday. Grandmas make great cheerleaders and Sharon is one of the best. The James Letelliers made a trip to Kadoka on Tuesday. The road construction on Highway 73 makes everyone wonder how long we will be able travel that way or have to take another route to town. The guys are really busy right at the junction, working both directions. The Norris Township Hall was about booked up this week with rummage sales. The Mednanskys had a taco and rummage sale on Wednesday and Ryan and Jenny Orrock held a moving rummage sale on Friday. The Orrocks will be moving to Timber Lake at the end of the school term. We will certainly miss them and hope that Timber Lake will appreciate them as much as we do. Thursday, James and Marjorie Letellier hosted a birthday supper for their granddaughter, Andee Beckwith. Surprise guests for the Chinese buffet were Andee’s parents Paul and LuAnne Beckwith of Pierre, (who brought the fortune cookies). Julie Letellier of Kilgore also was a guest. It was a fun evening. Oh, to be nineteen again! The weather was the main topic around here again this week. Early Friday morning we woke up to the weather radio forecasting that thunderstorms were headed our way. Shortly after that, we got rain and hail. We are very grateful it was small. We have heard reports of from two-tenths of an inch to over two inches of moisture and two inches of hail in spots, too. It is the first time the creek has run over the crossing behind the house without filling the ditch in front of the house first. One would have thought it had snowed if you didn’t hear the hail. We had water puddles all over the place and the creek is still running. It must have washed some plowed fields because it was the muddiest water you ever did see. We are grateful for every drop of rain, though and it is early enough that the garden will recover, but the rhubarb really took a beating. Our hearts go out to Mary Heinert at the loss of her father, Bill Parnell, of Alva, Wyoming. Folks may remember, when Everett and Mary Heinert lived at Norris and she taught at Prairie View School many years ago. May the Lord comfort you as only He can at this sad time of loss. We will keep you in our prayers. Maxine Allard is truly enjoying her many birthday cards she received. She is opening a few a day, to make the pleasure they bring last just a bit longer. One she opened Sunday, brought her a special thrill since it was from Polly (Mechaley) Anderson. It included a first grade picture just in case Maxine didn’t remember who she was. Maxine has had many students over the years and I think she can remember every one. She certainly remembered Polly, though she only taught her for part of her first grade year at Long Valley. Norris School News: Three fifth grade students, Jesus Barrera, Matraca White Hat and Gracie Charging Hawk, repre-
sented the Norris School at the Regional Spelling Bee in Murdo on Monday. The third grade class will be going on a field trip to Rapid City along with the third graders from White River this week. Sports Rally Day will be held in White River on Wednesday, May 16. Everyone is invited to attend. Saturday, Evan and Dorothy Bligh took cows to the sale at Ft. Pierre and enjoyed taking in the some of the horse races at the Ft. Pierre Fairgrounds that day, too. It has been hard to set up a date to brand around here. Tafts had planned to brand on Friday, but due to the weather they put it off until Sunday. It was a lovely day, so friends and neighbors gathered at Tafts and helped them get that major project done. This is the best place in the world when it comes to friends and neighbors; they care and share with their whole heart. Dan had surgery on his left wrist on Tuesday so could only supervise. Get well soon, Danny! Among those helping at the Taft’s branding were Jesse Ferguson, Michael Grass and Marla Ferguson. Pete Ferguson was gone with the truck. Ed and Carol Ferguson were helping brand at the Owen and Bonnie Ferguson ranch on Sunday. Gene and Marjorie Popkes of Lakeview were Sunday dinner guests of her mother, Irene Kaufman. Our area has just received word of the loss of a dear lady, Joyce Handcock of Long Valley. The services were Wednesday in Kadoka. Our hearts certainly go out to her dear family and other relatives and friends. Joyce was an inspiration and encouragement to a lot of us. She made us all better people for having known her. May the Lord comfort you at this sad time of loss. Have a great week!
Ag Secretary Vilsack announces new conservation reserve program to restore grasslands, wetlands and wildlife
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced the opportunity for producers to enroll a total of 1 million acres of land in a new Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) initiative to preserve grasslands and wetlands. Vilsack will highlight the announcement later today at the Interior Department during the White House Growing America's Outdoor Heritage and Economy conference, which emphasizes the link between conservation and strong local economies through tourism, outdoor recreation, and healthy lands, waters and wildlife. The conference has attracted boaters, hunters, anglers, farmers, ranchers, land conservationists, historic preservationists, outdoor recreationists, small business owners, local governments, tribal leaders and others from across the 50 United States to discuss ways to spur and support successful conservation projects around the nation. USDA's CRP has a 25-year legacy of successfully protecting the nation's natural resources through voluntary participation, while providing significant economic and environmental benefits to rural communities across the United States. Under the Obama Administration, USDA has enrolled more than 8 million acres in CRP. The goal of the new CRP grasslands and wetlands initiative is to increase enrollment of environmentally sensitive land through targeted signups. USDA's Farm Service Agency (FSA), which administers CRP, will set aside acres within the 32-million acre program for specific enrollments that benefit duck nesting habitat, upland birds, wetlands, pollinators and wildlife. "By focusing 1 million acres of CRP on grasslands and wetlands, this initiative will have enormous benefits for farmers, sportsmen, and all Americans," said Vilsack. "CRP is one of our nation's most valuable and vital conservation efforts, ensuring cleaner air and water, preventing soil erosion, and enhancing economic opportunity in rural America by supporting recreation and tourism. With high crop prices, this approach to target our most sensitive lands is essential if we want to maintain the substantial benefits of CRP while ensuring that productive farm lands continue to produce the food and fiber Americans and the world needs." Rather than wait for a general sign-up (the process under which most CRP acres are enrolled), producers whose land meet eligibility criteria can enroll directly in this "continuous" category at any time. Some of the changes brought on by the expansion will take place immediately and some will be initiated in the coming months. Changes include: New Continuous Pollinator Practice – 100,000 additional acres A new continuous practice to permit producers to develop pollinator habitat for many pollinator species. Increase Acreage for Wetland Restoration – 200,000 additional acres Two practices will expand that are designed to restore wetlands that are both within a 100-year floodplain and outside of a100-year floodplain. Last year's floods were a strong reminder of the value of wetlands in absorbing storm water and slowing run-off. Restoration of Critical Grassland Ecosystems This initiative targets areas that can restore important habitats to protect threatened and/or endangered species, candidate species, or species of significant social/economic importance. The restoration work would be done through the following existing practices and sub-initiatives: Increase Acreage for SAFE – 400,000 additional acres SAFE practices provide the flexibility to meet the specific needs of high-value wildlife species in a participating state or region through higher-quality habitat. SAFE projects would be developed at the state and local level. Increase Acreage for Duck Nesting Habitat – 150,000 additional acres Restores wetlands and develops nesting habitat in areas deemed as the most critical waterfowl areas. Currently, there are 175,000 acres enrolled in this practice. Increase Acreage for Upland Bird Habitat Buffers – 150,000 additional acres Provides extremely valuable habitat for upland birds such as quail and pheasants. Currently, there are 244,000 acres enrolled in this initiative. Provide Greater Incentives for Continuous CRP To encourage producers to sign up their most environmentally valuable acres FSA will increase the Signing Incentive Payments (SIPs) to $150 per acre from the current level of $100 per acre. The incentive is offered on most continuous practices and will include wetland restorations, pollinators and upland bird habitat. Recently, USDA announced two additional CRP sign-ups: a fourweek general sign-up beginning on March 12 and ending on April 6; and a continuous sign-up for Highly Erodible Cropland beginning this summer, which seeks to protect the nation's most environmentally sensitive lands. The Highly Erodible Cropland initiative permits landowners to enroll up to 750,000 acres of land with an Erodibility Index (EI) of 20 or greater. Currently, about 30 million acres are enrolled in CRP. Contracts on an estimated 6.5 million acres will expire on Sept. 30, 2012. Over the past 25 years, farmers, conservationists, ranchers, hunters, fishermen and other outdoor enthusiasts have made CRP the largest and one of the most important in USDA's conservation portfolio. CRP is a voluntary program available to agricultural producers to help them use environmentally sensitive land for conservation benefits. Producers enrolled in CRP plant long-term, resource-conserving covers to improve the quality of water, control soil erosion and develop wildlife habitat. In return, USDA provides participants with rental payments and cost-share assistance. Contract duration is between 10 and 15 years. Producers with expiring contracts and producers with environmentally sensitive land are encouraged to evaluate their options under CRP. Producers also are encouraged to look into CRP's other enrollment opportunities offered on a continuous, non-competitive, signup basis.

Lawrence and Loretta Schrieber of Quinn came on Thursday to visit with Betty Kusick. They took Betty home with them and then returned her to Belvidere on Friday and did some yard work. Later Loretta and Betty went fishing and had really good luck. Kenny and Roxi Fox had company over the weekend. Son Shawn and his wife, Jodi, made it down from Mobridge. They all went over to 1880 Town on Saturday and enjoyed walking through all the buildings and looking at the exhibits. The 1880 Town opened back up for the season on April 27. Several locals work there as well as a large community of “migratory” retirees, who come back year after year. After enjoying the afternoon there, the Foxes all went over to Murdo and had supper together. Otherwise, they are keeping busy with the spring work and neighbors’ brandings. They plan on branding on Memorial Day so the boys and their families came make it down. Bob and Charlie Fortune went up north of Philip on Friday to work yearlings at Bob’s brother-inlaw, Mark Nelson’s, place. It was raining quite hard when they came through Belvidere, but was completely dry once they turned north. After they were finished with the heifers, the crew stuck around and branded just short of 20 head of Mark’s calves. Francie Davis and sons, Grady, Garrett and Gage, came up to help as well, and the boys enjoyed getting to help wrestle a few of the calves. Francie demonstrated again that she did not inherit the Fortune/Nelson genetic that makes roping natural. Thankfully that wasn’t a surprise for the rest of the crew, and they were able to keep their laughter at a minimum. Bob’s son, Les Red Paint, from Yankton, also made it down for the weekend. He stayed Thursday with Chad and Francie Davis and family, helped work the yearlings on Friday, and was coerced into remodeling the upstairs guest bathroom on Saturday out at Bob’s. It was an unexpected project, brought on by the rain. Along with caulking being replaced around the skylight, he helped re-caulk the tub and shower. He went home again with friends on Sunday. He said he always looks forward to the easy speed of life back in Yankton after he spends a weekend at home. Chuck and Merry Willard are enjoying their new chicks. They received a shipment last week and, other than one death due to “operator error”, they are doing well. Chuck said that he can walk into their pen and “cheap” and they all lift their heads and come to him. They will run away from anyone else who comes into the pen. Who

We noticed a decrease in the presence of animal acts this year, but it was made up for with the increase in flying girls. All in all it was a good day and enjoyed by everyone.

A large crowd of family and friends attended the funeral of Verna Mae (Terkildsen) Sharp in Rapid City on Friday, May 4. Verna Mae died at her home on Sunday, April 29, and sympathy is extended to her family. She was very well known in the area and shared her love of music by coming to the Kadoka Nursing Home many times. She was buried at the National Cemetery near Sturgis. Pat Kozlik’s daughter, Tammy Dahms, of Ft. Campbell, KY, has visited her several times in the past few weeks. She has been helping get her mother-in-law settled in Rapid City. Joyce Handcock, 85, a resident of the Kadoka Nursing Home for several years, passed away there on May 5. She was a former resident of the Long Valley area. Joyce’s funeral was held at the Kadoka City Auditorium in Kadoka on Wednesday, May 9. The area communities extend sympathy to her family. Burial was in the Long Valley Community Cemetery. An eight pound ten ounce baby boy was born to Paul and Sarah Eisenbraun of Yankton on May 3. Local great-grandparent is Cloreta Eisenbraun and his grandparents are Randy and Laurie Eisenbraun of Gordon, NE. Cloreta and Krystal Ring of Gillette, WY, drove to Vermillion on Friday, where they went to attend the graduation of Paul from the law school there, on Saturday. As of Monday the baby is still in the hospital in Yankton fighting an infection. We wish him a speedy recovery. This past weekend was a busy time for college graduates. Several local people went to Spearfish to attend the university’s exercises on Saturday. Christy Willert and Laurie Prichard both received their Master’s Degrees that day. Among friends and relatives attending were Jamie Willert, Cleve Prichard, Jerry and Cindy Willert, Barbara and Cathy Stone, Pam and Keith Bonenberger, Laurel and Rich Hildebrand and Heidi and Sauntee Coller.

Strengthening your upcoming tourist season; seminars to be held in Murdo
The Murdo Area Chamber of Commerce is hosting exciting seminars on Wednesday, May 16, and they invite all business owners, managers and staff to participate. The sessions will be held at the Turner Community Center located at 121 North Main St. (next to First Fidelity Bank), Murdo, SD. Jewell Bork, representing the Murdo Area Chamber of Commerce, said, “I was delighted to find Mary Arlington, a new Pierrebased speaker and marketing professional. She helped us turn May 16th into a great opportunity for the local businesses by agreeing to a full day of seminars on a variety of topics. Her presentations are exciting, and I think the lineup has something to offer to every business in our area.” Arlington will be providing five unique sessions to help the businesses refresh their customer service skills, learn how to capture the attention of geo-cachers (if you don’t know about them, be sure to attend the seminar), and how to gain an even stronger presence on the Internet. Jewell elaborated, “One session is a hands-on workshop so you can walk away with a marketing product ready for use.” Arlington has 10 years of experience greeting tourists, after a lifetime of being a tourist and also a self-employed consultant, trainer and writer. She knows what it's like to stand on both sides of the customer counter, and she will help everybody sharpen their service skills. She owned and operated an overnight campground in the middle of wide-open Kansas. She understands rural communities, tourists who marvel at new territories, weary travelers, networking, long summer hours, social media, training employees, and the traits of Gen X, Gen Y, and the babyboomers (which captures a large segment of the tourist population). She also knows the joy of keeping the right attitude, knowing it can make all the difference in the world. The program schedule is: 11 a.m. - noon Customer Service / welcoming travelers to your community 1:00 - 1:45 p.m. Hiding GeoCaches In Your Community (and if you don’t understand it, then this class is for you!) (Introductory class on who geo-cachers are and how you can attract them to your area and to your own business) 2:15 – 3:15 p.m. Social Media for Beginners (an overview of why you should consider having a presence on Facebook, Twitter, Blogs, YouTube, Foursquare, and other social media outlets, as well as your own webpage and email). 3:15 – 4:45 p.m. Social Media Workshop for Beginners (hands-on help in setting up your Facebook business page. Bring your laptop; need not have attended the previous session but definitely helpful to have familiarity with social media) 5:15 – 6:15 p.m. Social Media Level II (for those who have, or soon will have, their business on Facebook and other social media outlets but who would like ideas on using them more effectively) 6:30 – 7:30 p.m. Customer Service / Welcoming Travelers to Your Community (a repeat of the first session) There is no charge to attend the seminars. These seminars are sponsored by the South Dakota Department of Tourism and the Murdo Area Chamber of Commerce.

9th Annual Youth Range Day a “huge” success
Academic Excellence Banquet … Nicole VanderMay receives her academic excellence certificate from Gov. Daugaard. --courtsey photo
The entire state should celebrate the accomplishments of South Dakota’s top-performing students, Gov. Dennis Daugaard told a room of high-achieving seniors during the 22nd Annual Academic Excellence Banquet, held April 30 in Pierre. The event, hosted by Associated School Boards of South Dakota and sponsored by the South Dakota Community Foundation and Citibank, recognizes the top 1 percent of the 2012 graduating class. Each of the state’s public, private and tribal schools are asked to identify one student for every 100 graduating seniors. Gov. Daugaard opened his address by complimenting students for their hard work and dedication. “On behalf of all South Dakotans, congratulations on your accomplishments,” he said. “We are very, very proud of you.” The governor invited the soonto-be-graduates to dream big and summon the perseverance to follow through on their aspirations. “You have the talent and ability to make big ideas a reality,” Daugaard said, adding later that talent, intelligence and education mean little without persistence and determination. Gov. Daugaard called the celebration a time for thanksgiving, encouraging students to recognize all who have helped them achieve. The governor credited America’s commitment to public education; a value he said was reinforced during his recent trip to Afghanistan. He also said students should be thankful to taxpayers who fund the state’s public education system and to teachers who help students understand the importance of learning. Gov. Daugaard stressed that students should also take time to express gratitude to their parents, many of whom were in attendance with the honorees. “Let’s thank mom and dad most of all,” he said. “They made it all possible.” Since 1990, ASBSD has asked schools to identify the top 1 percent of the state’s graduating students to be recognized the Academic Excellence Recognition Banquet. Schools are encouraged to choose students based on academic criteria, such as grade-point average and scores on college readiness tests. Parents and high school principals are invited to accompany each student to share in the celebration. This year, approximately 550 students, parents and educators attended the event. Associated School Boards of South Dakota is a private, nonprofit association representing more than 850 local school board members, the 150 school districts they govern and the students they serve. Our mission is: Partnering. Advocating. Leading.
Robel pole exercise … was demonstrated to the students as a
The 9th Annual Youth Range Day, sponsored by the Jackson County Conservation District, was held April 18, 2012, at the Gene Williams’ ranch field day site, near the Badlands National Park. The purpose of the event is to provide seventh grade students better exposure, understanding and knowledge of the local range and natural resources. Sixty-nine students from Wall, Philip and Kadoka schools attended the Range Day event. The event is comprised of four different subjects and educational stations: range, soils, wildlife, Geology-Paleontology-Cultural Resources. The students were divided up into four groups and rotated through each one hour, educational station. All attendees were treated to a delicious noon lunch at the site. Professional staff from US Forest Service National Grasslands, Badlands National Park, SD Game, Fish & Parks and SD NRCS served as educational station instructors and educators. Students were exposed to a variety of subject presentations, demonstrations and field exercises, including: Robel Pole % ground cover determination exercise, plant ID, soil field exercises, soil profile evaluation, animal skull and fur ID, radio telemetry (animal collar tracking technology), predator-prey exercise, and much more. --by Kelly J.

FSA crop certification deadline is July 15
Producers who file accurate and timely reports for all crops and land uses, including prevented planted and failed acreage can prevent the potential loss of FSA program benefits. "I encourage all producers to contact their local FSA office to make an appointment to file their annual acreage report by the July 15th deadline in order to comply with FSA program eligibility requirements," said Schaunaman. South Dakota FSA offices no longer mail appointment cards and maps to producers for acreage reporting purposes. Producers are responsible for contacting their local FSA office to set up an appointment to file their 2012 acreage report. Hard copy maps will be provided to the producer at the time the acreage report is filed. Producers wishing to obtain digital color copies of their respective maps are encouraged to provide their e-mail address or a new jump drive to their local FSA office to facilitate the request for digital maps. Producers are also reminded to report crop losses insured through Federal Crop Insurance and the Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) within 15 days of the disaster or as soon as the loss is apparent. Additional information about the acreage reporting process or programs administered by FSA may be obtained by contacting your local FSA office or on the web at www.fsa.usda.gov.

FARM PROGRAM SIGNUP The Jackson County-Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds producers that the deadline to enroll in the 2012 Direct and CounterCyclical Payment (DCP) or Farm Program is June 1. DCP provides payments to eligible producers on farms enrolled for the 2012 crop year. There are two types of DCP payments: direct payments and counter-cyclical payments. Both are calculated using the base acres and payment yields established for the farm. DCP is authorized by the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (2008 Farm Bill). Participating producers agree, among other things, to apply conservation compliance plans on Highly Erodible land, control weeds/pests and follow the sodbuster/swampbuster provisions-which means that participating producers/operators /landowners must notify FSA of any new cropland breakings or drainage practices PRIOR to conducting these types of projects. This applies on all ground operated or controlled regardless if the farm/ground in question is participating or not. In other words, if a producer/landowner/operator participates in the Farm Program on one farm he/she has to follow the sod/swamp buster provisions on ALL ground, whether it is participating farm or not. GovDelivery Whether we like it or not…society is moving toward a paperless environment. Moving to electronic notifications and providing program information via the internet & emails will help conserve resources and save taxpayer dollars. FSA’s initiative in this regard is known as GOING GREEN. Next time you are in your local FSA County Office be prepared to give them your email address, if you haven’t done so already.
