Piping in sprinkler system
Work began on the sprinkler system at the Kadoka Nursing Home on Tuesday, April 10. A twomember crew has turned into four guys from Complete Contracting Solutions. Workers are boring through the cement walls and placing pipe along the ceiling. Each room will have three sprinkler heads installed. “It’s dusty, noisy and you need ear plugs,” said Ruby Sanftner. Once completed there will be a suspended ceiling put in and the lights will be lowered. Work will also continue in the clinic, WIC office and the basement.

All documents need to be scanned and Reiter will rent the scanners to the county, which will vary in price according to the size of the scanner. Reiter stated that Register of Deeds Mitzi Mitchell will be able to scan the small documents, but he would do the larger plats and also change the blueprint documents to a white back ground with black type, so they’re easier to read. A motion carried to enter into a contract with Curt Reiter for imaging services.

He stated that the push cat is being repaired in Rapid City and a demonstration of a mulcher is being scheduled to be held in late April. Olney presented quotes on 2,000 - 2,500 watt generators. After discussion, it was determined that a larger generator would be more beneficial to the county. Olney made contact with Hogen’s Hardware and the purchase of a 9,000 watt generator in the amount of $769.00. Prior to purchasing a generator, the county had been using a generator owned by Olney. In exchange for the use of his generator, the commissioners declared four old bridge planks surplus and traded them to Olney as compensation for the use of his generator. Olney questioned about adding a dove tail to the flat bed trailer. Earlier it was agreed once the surplused metal beams had been sold, those funds would be used to cover the expense of the dove tail. Earlier quotes for the dove tail were $3,500 to $3,800. The commissioners asked Olney to obtain a current price qoute. Olney presented a bill from T.F. Luke & Sons for the crushing and screening that has been completed at the Kennedy pit.

Jury takes 30 minutes to find Thomas Petersen guilty of wife's death
Jurors needed only about 30 minutes to convict Thomas Petersen on April 16, 2012. Prosecutor Doug Hammerand successfully argued that using three knives to inflict 129 cut or stab wounds demonstrated malice, deliberation, premeditation and specific intent to kill beyond a reasonable doubt. “Folks, it’s that easy. Use your common sense,” Hammerand told jurors during his closing statement. Judy Renee Petersen, 36, died on June 4, 2011. Her husband, now a convicted murderer, will be sentenced on the one-year anniversary of her death. He will serve life in prison with no chance for parole. Petersen is due back in Butler County District Court at 2 p.m. June 4. Edwin Case of Dallas, Texas, Renee Petersen’s brother, spoke for the family after the verdict came back about 4 p.m. Monday. The ordeal of the five-day trial had been “very agonizing,” Case said, and he thanked prosecutors, investigators and others who had shown support along the way. The speed with which jurors worked was gratifying, Case added, and the conclusion of Petersen’s guilt was therefore inescapable. “It was helpful. A jury finding a verdict that quickly makes it very obvious,” Case said. Defense attorney Susan Flander tried to argue the viciousness of the attack itself proved Petersen was intoxicated and unable to form specific intent to kill. During her closing remarks, Flander asked jurors to imagine the crime and how long the slashing and cutting would take. “Can you do it in 129 seconds? Can you do it in 258 seconds?” she asked. “It’s a frenzied attack done by a crazy guy or a drunk guy. In this case it’s a drunk guy,” Flander added. Thomas Petersen took the witness stand in his own defense Monday morning, claiming he blacked out after his wife threatened him with a knife and scratched his face deeply enough to draw blood. Petersen admitted “flashes of memory” and “stabbing at” his wife but denied he meant to kill or had any recollection of causing Renee Petersen’s fatal wounds. He vaguely recalled picking up three knives. “What’s the next thing you remember?” Flander asked. “Standing over her next to the front door,” Petersen said. Hammerand, during cross-examination, focused on intricacies that Petersen testified he could remember on the day Renee Petersen died. “If you did not have specific intent to kill, why did you stab her 129 times?” Hammerand asked. “I don’t recall,” Petersen said. “Why did you use three separate knives?” “I don’t have an answer to that question,” Petersen said. During his closing remarks, Hammerand rejected the idea that Petersen blacked out. “Isn’t it interesting,” Hammerand said. “He can remember Renee’s ‘evil look’ ... but right after that, when the attack starts, the memory starts to go.” reprinted with permission --by Dennis Magee for The Globe Gazette
School board adopts policies for weather or emergency make up days, sponsoring extra curricular coop activities
~ by Robyn Jones ~ The Kadoka Area School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, April 11 at 7:00 p.m. The agenda, financial report, bills and minutes from the March 12 and 28 meetings were approved. Within the superintendent’s report, Jamie Hermann stated that the school improvement plan for each attendance center in the district is complete and has been submitted to the SD Department of Education, as required by Title 1. DakotaStep testing is near completion and due into the SD Dept. of Education by April 20. Section one of the Indian Education requirement has been completed and there will be a small increase in the amount allocated to the district. In previous years these funds have been used to provide a bus monitor and instructional aide positions. With these funds, a video surveillance system will be installed on the Wanblee and Interior buses. It is being considered to use the remaining fund balance to supply students with second portions for no charge at lunch. The budget process for the 20122013 school year has began. If the district qualifies as a heavily impacted district, additional funding would be available through Impact Aid. There are several criterias that must be met to receive this status, including the creation of a pension fund through the levy collection process. The levy for this fund would be set at $0.30 per thousand, but the district would decrease the capital outlay fund levy by $0.30, so the tax base would not been increased. If the district would receive the distinction of heavily impacted, the district would receive approximately an additional one million dollars in funding. Elementary Principal Roger Jensen gave an update on activities for the remainder of the school year including field trip and music program dates. Jensen stated that the Response to Intervention (RtI)assessements for grades K-5 have been completed and there will be an RtI conference in July at Chamberlain. Jensen also presented a staff training schedule for teachers to attend to help prepare them for the common core testing that will be implemented in 2014. Secondary Principal Tim Hagedorn stated that the handbook is in the process of being updated and changes will be presented at the next board meeting. The class schedule for the 20122013 school year is near complete and student pre-registration will be done next week. The buildings and ground committee stated that the specification for the interior repairs on the Great Hall have been received, but the exterior specifications have not. Hermann stated that areas of sheetrock, insulation and some windows will be replaced. The policy committee reviewed corporal punishment and the sexual harassment section of the policy book and proposed a policy change that addresses the issues if board members excuse themselves or abstain from voting due to a conflict of interest and there is not a quorum casting a vote, then the passage of the motion will be determined by majority of the remaining board members. The board then entered into executive session at 7:30 p.m. with Hagedorn and a few citizens who were in attendance, for the purpose of student matters. The board returned to open session at 8:40 p.m. with no action taken. Second reading was held on the weather or emergency calendar make up policy and the school sponsored extra curricular activities policy, which were both approved for adoption. Review and canvassing of the votes from the school board election that was held on April 10 was conducted. The election results were certified as Mark Williams 238 votes, Jim Brown 187 votes, Ross Block 245 votes, and Mark DeVries 98 votes. At 9:03 p.m. the board entered into executive session for personnel matters and returned to open session at 9:38 p.m. A motion was made and failed to renew the contract to Roger Jensen for the elementary principal position for the 2012-2013 school term. A motion was approved to renew the contract to Tim Hagedorn for the secondary principal position for the 2012-2013 school term. Support staff contracts were approved to be offered as recommended by the negotiations committee. Advertising for lunch services at the Midland School for the 20122013 was approved and was the final action item of the meeting. The board then entered into executive session at 9:41 p.m. for administrative staff contract negotiations. They returned to open session at 11:15, with no action taken, and the meeting was adjourned. The next regular board meeting will be held on Wednesday, May 9 at 7 p.m. at the Kadoka School.
2011 Youth Risk Behavior Survey results released
The 2011 South Dakota Youth Risk Behavior Survey Report has been released. Administered every other year, the Youth Risk Behavior Survey is a questionnaire that assesses the six priority health-risk behaviors that result in the greatest amount of morbidity, mortality and social problems among youth. About 1,800 students in grades 9-12 at randomly selected public, private and Bureau of Indian Education schools participated in the survey. Key indicators included in the report are outlined below: •27 percent of students were bullied on school property in the past 12 months •20 percent had been bullied electronically during the past 12 months •18 percent seriously considered attempting suicide in the past 12 months •49 percent were physically active for a total of at least 60 minutes per day during five or more of the past seven days •22 percent wrongly believe smokeless tobacco is safer than cigarettes •26 percent had five or more drinks of alcohol within a couple of hours, on one or more of the past 30 days •24 percent of currently sexually active students, defined as those who’ve had sexual intercourse during the past three months, drank alcohol or used drugs before their last sexual intercourse. Studies have proven that physically and emotionally healthy students will perform better in the classroom and enjoy continued success throughout their lives. A comprehensive school health program is a key component in reducing the occurrence of risk behaviors among young people. Continued on page 2

Jury selected, compelling testimony delivered in Petersen murder trial Gerald P. “Jerry” Kerkvliet _________
open road was his passion. Jerry was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Salem. He was also a member of the American Legion Post 140. He loved playing pool and bean-bags, where he served as “The Decider” in the Kerkvliet family tournaments. He was also an avid sports fan and followed politics religiously. His greatest love of all was for his family, especially his grandchildren. They were his greatest joy in life. Jerry is survived by his wife, Faye of Salem, his daughter, Teri (Jed) Kylander, and their children, Ella and Evan, all of Highlands Ranch, CO, a brother, Wayne (Carol) of Ham Lake, MN, three sisters, Sr. Marietta Kerkvliet of Yankton, SD, Donna (Jim) Muller of Ft. Collins, CO, and Mary Kay (Dave) Butler of Lake Carlos, MN, and many nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Elizabeth, his twin brother, Ronald, brother, Michael, brother-in-law, John Nitz, and three nieces, Sarah Nitz, Michelle Davis, and Kristine McQuistion. Funeral mass were held at 10:30 a.m. on Monday, April 16, 2012, at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Salem. Visitation was held at 12 p.m. on Sunday, April 15 with a 3 p.m. rosary and a 7 p.m. prayer service all at Kinzley Funeral Home in Salem. Online guest book is available at www.kinzleyfh.com Prosecutor Doug Hammerand opened his case against Thomas Petersen on Wednesday, April 11 with compelling and emotional evidence, including testimony from an 18-year-old Eagle Scout. Cody George was only 17, however, when he discovered his mother’s bloody body in the family’s home in Greene and attempted CPR. Jurors learned George’s mother, Judy Renee Petersen, 36, suffered multiple injuries to her face, neck, head, chest and arms. “If you count every cut and stab wound, there’s 129,” Hammerand said. Thomas Petersen, Judy Renee Petersen’s husband and George’s stepfather, is on trial on a charge of first-degree murder. If convicted, he faces life in prison with no chance for parole. Petersen attacked his wife with three knives, Hammerand told jurors during his opening remarks. One was a filet knife, the second was a chef ’s knife and the third was described as “short.” Two of the knives’ blades bent during the assault, according to Hammerand. “This case is not a whodunit,” he added. The fatal confrontation capped a downward spiral in the couple’s relationship. They had moved from Texas several years earlier because both liked the idea of living in Iowa and ultimately bought a home in Greene. Petersen worked as a Schwan delivery man. Renee Petersen was employed by a health clinic. But money was a problem, and eventually the van Renee Petersen drove was repossessed. “In June of last year, the marriage between Thomas and Renee Petersen was over,” Hammerand said. Petersen promised a family member he would make the divorce “as difficult as possible” for his wife and “make her life miserable,” according to Hammerand. Defense attorney Susan Flander conceded the point, even suggesting jurors would indeed find her client guilty, although not of firstdegree murder. She noted Petersen’s history with mental health issues and what she described as a serious drinking problem. “This is the action of a man under the influence of alcohol,” Flander said during her opening statement. That, she said, means Petersen could not form specific intent to kill. According to Flander, jurors must then conclude Petersen is guilty of a no more than second-degree murder. Renee Petersen got close to her husband during an argument and may have brandished something silver in Petersen’s direction, according to Flander. “He felt something against his testicles and Renee said something about ‘cutting them off ’ and ‘waking up without them,’ ” Flander said. Because he had been drinking all through the day leading up to the fatal confrontation, Petersen blacked out, according to Flander’s version of events. “The next thing he knows, he wakes up and he saw a horrific sight,” Flander told jurors. “His only thought was to get his 2-yearold son out of there.” Law enforcement officials apprehended Petersen in South Dakota. He had the couple’s youngest child with him, according to numerous sources. Hammerand anticipated the question of specific intent and intoxication, which from the attorneys’ opening statements appears a central issue in Petersen’s case. “His specific intent when he grabbed the first knife, the second knife and the third knife was to kill Renee Petersen,” Hammerand said. Jurors also heard from Beverly Truax, a dispatcher for Butler County who first spoke to Renee Petersen’s son, Cody George. Hammerand also played a recording of the 911 call from June 4, 2011. On it, George frantically pleads for emergency crews to hurry. “I need them here now,” the boy said. “Hang in there, man. I know it seems like forever,” a male dispatcher responded. “Momma, wake up,” George said later, adding “there’s no pulse or anything.” “Just keep pumping, man,” the dispatcher said. Many in the courtroom audience, including Renee Petersen’s mother, wept as the six-minute recording played. Six men and six women will determine Petersen’s guilt or innocence. Defense attorneys, prosecutors and the court picked the group from a field of 92 potential candidates. The process began at 9 a.m. Tuesday and concluded when those selected took an oath at 11:30 a.m. Wednesday. The court also selected two alternates — a man and a woman. Petersen appeared comfortable during the first two days of his trial. He actively participated with his defense team, Flander and Annette Boehlje, as they eliminated potential jurors Wednesday morning. At one point, Petersen smiled with others in the courtroom when Flander asked if any potential juror had ever been described as “stubborn or willful by anyone other than their spouse.” reprinted with permmission --by Dennis Magee for The Globe Gazette

SD officers officers testify in Petersen trial on chase dangers
Aided by technology, jurors on Thursday heard from the late Renee Judy Petersen and her husband, Thomas Petersen, the man accused of murdering her, at the second day of trail, April 12, 2012. “He was making threats against himself and me,” Renee Petersen texted. The message went to Thomas Petersen’s sister, Kelly Svebek, about two months before a fatal stabbing claimed Renee Petersen’s life. Thomas Petersen also “hinted at” killing himself if he did not win full custody of his children as the couple headed for divorce, according to Renee Petersen’s texts. He also “planned on attending a funeral in two weeks, and it wasn’t his.” Authorities allege Petersen stabbed and cut his wife more than 120 times on June 4, 2011. He allegedly used three knives in the attack. Renee Petersen’s son, Cody George, discovered her body in the family’s home in Greene. Petersen, however, allegedly fled the scene with the couple’s 2-yearold son. Jurors on Thursday learned how close Petersen came to losing his own life during a confrontation June 5, 2011. Bryan Warner, a federal park law enforcement officer in June 2011, testified about the pursuit in South Dakota that ultimately led to Petersen’s arrest. During the chase, Warner said he topped 100 mph in his patrol vehicle and watched as Petersen forced a sheriff ’s patrol car off a road. Warner testified seeing Petersen eject his 2-year-old son from his pickup after stopping briefly during the pursuit. “I saw the defendant throw something out of the door. At the time I couldn’t comprehend was it was,” Warner said. “I realized it was the child that we were looking for,” as a result of an Amber Alert, he added. Officials were able to narrow their search for Petersen because he used a credit card in South Dakota. Warner was just a few miles away and deduced Petersen’s likely route. “There were only a couple of ways for the individual to go,” Warner said. While being taken into custody, Petersen talked about hoping for a cliff to drive off, according to Warner. He also suggested he wanted officers to shoot him. “He said he wished one of the officers had an itchy trigger finger,” Warner said. Warner and other officers trained their weapons on the man they believed was the subject of an Amber Alert issued in Iowa. A South Dakota trooper was using an assault rifle, and Warner had a shotgun, according to the park ranger. “I fired the first round of my shotgun,” Warner testified, “and racked the second shell.” Warner said Petersen made several “erratic” statements and cautioned the officer not to employ his Taser. “He said something to the effect of my day was going to go very badly, or end very badly,’” Warner said. Later parts of the incident were captured on video, recorded by a dashboard camera mounted in Trooper Clay Kartak’s patrol car. Kartak is a member of the South Dakota State Highway Patrol and joined the high-speed pursuit. On the video, jurors saw Petersen’s burning pickup and then a tense standoff that lasted about 20 minutes. “Stop right there,” Kartak called to another officer on the video. “That’s the crazy guy.” Petersen walked several hundred yards, concealing a black item in a pocket as he walked along the highway. “He does have something in his hand. We do not know what it is,” Kartak reported at one point. Kartak admitted being “amped up” during what he described as a stressful situation. As officers jockeyed for position, closing in as Petersen retreated and backing off as he advanced, Kartak’s frustration seemed to show. Petersen swore repeatedly and threatened the officers. “My name is ___ ___,” he yelled. “I want this guy to shoot me,” Petersen added later, pointing at an officer holding what looked like a shotgun. In cross examining Kartak, defense attorney Susan Flander directed attention to another of her client’s comments. “He said his wife was trying to take his balls off with a paring knife. Is that correct?” Flander asked the trooper. “Yes,” he said. The video concluded when a officer fired his Taser. As Petersen went down in a ditch, at least nine law enforcement officials moved in quickly to subdue him and take him into custody. reprinted with permmission --by Dennis Magee for The Globe Gazette

Weather reporting volunteers needed
A national volunteer network of precipitation observers, or CoCoRaHS (Community Collaborative Rain Hail & Snow Network) is looking for more volunteers to track precipitation events across South Dakota reported State Climatologist, Dennis Todey, during a recent iGrow Radio Network interview. "These are everyday people who enjoy measuring precipitation and are willing to report that on the internet," he says, of the volunteers who measure and report after rain, hail and snow events. Despite today's automated technology, Todey believes local reporting is still essential in tracking the variability of rainfall. "It's a huge benefit to us to have people across the state who monitor precipitation. The biggest variability in weather across the state is how precipitation varies. Even with all the technology we have, we really need to have on-ground measurements all across the state to tell us what is really happening on the ground," he said. "Where we have heavy rain events, like flood events, the National Weather Service has issued flash flood warnings based on people's reports on how much rain fall there was," he said. Todey says volunteer reports can also be useful in documenting drought conditions. "If people can tell us how many days they've gone without rainfall, it helps us document drought conditions and better support disaster declaration because of drought," he said. Volunteers willing to be part of the CoCoRaHS network must be willing to take daily precipitation readings between 6 a.m. and 9 a.m. and report the events on-line. They are asked to use a standard 4-inch diameter rain gauge and will receive a small bit of training. A March Madness recruiting campaign is now underway. To learn more visit www.cocorahs.org or contact Todey at (605) 688-5678. For more information on this topic, visit iGrow.org. The iGrow Radio Network and SDSU Extension bring listeners an informative show each day. For more information on the iGrow Radio Network, or to listen to archived shows, visit www.igrow.org.

Tornado warning systems to be tested April 25
A statewide tornado drill will be conducted for South Dakota by the National Weather Service between 9:00 and 9:30 am MDT (10:00 and 10:30 a.m. CDT) on Wednesday, April 25. Because the exercise is used to ensure communications and warning systems are functioning properly before storm season, people will see and hear the alerts used for tornadoes. Outdoor warning sirens will be sounded in many towns. The sirens may not be heard inside homes and office buildings, as they are intended to alert people who are outdoors away from radio or TV. The drill will also include activation of the Emergency Alert System, which will interrupt local media broadcasts. The public should be aware that the scroll on television will look like a real warning, while the audio will be identified as a test. Local emergency response agencies may practice their response procedures and schools will conduct safety drills for their students. Individuals do not need to take any action during the drill, but they are encouraged to make plans to protect themselves and their families before storms develop. Don’t wait until the storm is headed toward you as there won’t be time. Information about storm safety is available from county emergency management offices or visit the following web sites: The Rapid City National Weather Service at www.weather.gov/rapidcity, Black Hills Chapter of the American Red Cross at www.blackhillsredcross.org, and the South Dakota Department of Health at www.bReadySD.com.

Inspiration Point
Read Lamentations 3:24-26 Many Christians struggle to discipline themselves in the area of self-gratification. There are so many things we want right now. And to make matters worse, Willing to Wait for God's Way we usually have the ability to follow through on our desires. That's what the entire credit card industry is all about: have it now; pay later. But finances aren't the only area where we get into trouble. Some people are in a hurry to be married and therefore make an unwise choice regarding a mate. Others don't even see marriage as necessary and opt for premarital sex instead of waiting for the right person. Or maybe you're just in a hurry to become successful and well-respected in your career, never giving any thought to whether your pursuit aligns with God's plans for your life. One reason the Lord wants us to wait is to protect us from our own self-destructive ways. Those who can't say no to their own desires end up enslaved to them. God wants us to be mature believers who have the character and self-restraint to wait for Him to provide in His perfect time. Because the heavenly Father is omniscient, He alone knows what's best. You can trust that if He asks you to wait, He has something more wonderful in mind than you could ever provide for yourself. Does anything seem to have a power over you? If so, it may be an area that requires the practice of self-restraint. Yield to the Lord, and submit your desires to Him. Then, begin saying no to temptations as you wait for God to reveal His will for your life.

that Greg worked on for about 15 years, and it is considered the second oldest dude ranch in the country. It was started back about 1910 when its owners were looking for additional income to pay for the ranch. Various guys from the area have worked there on and off, mostly through Greg’s encouragement since he was the first from this area to work there. Tojo Osborn’s nephew, Troy Ehrmantraut, was one of those who spent several seasons at the H F Bar and one who often comes here in the spring to help with brandings and other work. He does a lot of horse shoeing during the year as well. Mike Perault said calving has been going quite well, thanks in part to the nice weather this year. He was glad to report an inch and twenty hundredths of rain this weekend which he said was very welcomed. Mark DeVries said his sons, Gavin and Geoffrey, are in track at present. The family often attends the Kadoka meets to cheer them on. Mark’s folks, Jim and Lynn, came from Kansas a few weeks ago during their spring break since they are both teachers. Jim is expected back probably in May for a while as usual as are various other family members. Lynn DeVries has taught school in Korea on and off for quite a few years but is not planning any trips there in the near future due to unrest between the Koreas and between them and neighboring countries.

Garden Fever
Now that we’ve had April showers, we can probably expect May flowers. We can also probably expect the onset of garden fever and with a vengeance. This latter dreadful condition is when people, in the throes of optimism, plant a much bigger garden then they need or can reasonably expect to take care of. I speak from experience. In my younger years, I often plowed up a huge bit of ground with a tractor and then set to planting everything under the sun in great quantity. A normal garden would usually include radishes, leaf lettuce, peas, beans, beets, carrots, tomatoes, cucumbers, onions, corn, potatoes, squash and anything else that looked interesting. This was all fine and good until summer and reality took their toll. A large garden, as you know, will require a whole lot of weeding and, in this arid climate, watering. If you have much else to do in life, you may not be able to keep things under control long enough to get much of a harvest. As a result, I’ve had to rationalize. First off, many vegetables taste about as good when you purchase them as when you grow them. They may even be cheaper if you consider your time worth anything. Take green beans for instance. You can buy them quite reasonably in either frozen or canned form. I’ve never canned any that I’ve raised since those have been known to easily go bad and poison your entire family. We have frozen a lot of them, though, and I can’t really tell much difference between home-grown and purchased. Incidentally, my mom froze a lot of beans I’d raised, but she thought you should blanch them first which involves briefly boiling them before plunging them into ice water. Later we found you could just cut the dumb things up and freeze them without the tedium. There wasn’t much taste or texture difference between beans frozen the hard way or the easy way. Secondly, I’m not good with certain vegetables, such as corn. My dad could raise corn and so can my wife, but I don’t seem to have the knack. Mine grows two feet tall, tassels out, and puts out stunted little ears. Other veggies are so buggy that I tire of picking off bugs or fluffing everything with insecticide. Potatoes and every member of the cabbage family come to mind. The cabbage family would include cabbage, broccoli, cauliflower, Brussels sprouts, and kohlrabi. As a result of excessive gardening over many years, I have, of course, gained a lot of knowledge through experience. Oddly enough, though, I often get carried away with things to the extent that they nearly drive me crazy. Then, after I’ve learned all I want to know about a subject, I sort of lose interest and go on to other things. The learning somehow seems more important and interesting than going on and continually using the gained knowledge and experience. I can’t exactly explain why that is, but it has happened to me more than a few times. Rabbit raising and photography come to mind. I’m still in my computer, writing, and piano playing modes, however, and all are complicated enough that they should hold my interest for a while yet. As you know, however, homegrown tomatoes and cucumbers are much superior to anything you can buy in a store. Neither do they take a lot of special care. A little watering and fertilizing should do the job, especially if you don’t have a lot of other plants to tend. This year, then, my plans are to have about three tomato plants and a couple hills of cucumbers. I might also plant a few radishes just because I like to grow them. They only take a month from seed to dinner table and are fun. I don’t eat them much since I don’t enjoy burping them for hours afterwards, but wife Corinne likes them which is a good excuse for growing them. Actually, I’d plant a few more things like beans, peas, beets, and squash if our life was a little more settled, but that doesn’t appear to be in the cards this year. Maybe next year. Huckleberries, by the way, are fun to grow. They do bake up into fairly good pies, but the best thing is when people see them growing and pick some to eat. They look delicious but are perfectly dreadful when raw. The grimace on the face of someone eating an uncooked huckleberry is priceless. So, for now, it’s about time to plant radishes, beets, peas, potatoes, and leaf lettuce since those thrive in cool weather and don’t do much if planted too late. I’ll leave those to you this year since you probably have already contracted garden fever and can’t wait to feel the soil run through your fingers. I personally will just wait a few more weeks and get going on some tomatoes and cucs. As you can see, I have garden fever under control for now, but there may be an outbreak of it at some time in the future. It’s hard to say. Good luck to you on having a sensibly sized garden this time around. If I can do it, so can you, or at least for this year. No bets on next year.
with twenty one ladies attending. attended represented Ladies churches in Gregory, Winner, Rosebud, Murdo, Draper, Chamberlain and Lead. Pastor Andrew Utecht was the speaker for the event. They were thrilled to have former St. John Lutheran Pastor and Mrs. Bob Utecht attend, along with former St. John members, Emma Waack, and daughters, Dorothy and Mildred, of Winner. Glad to hear your “boys” are taking such good care of you, Emma. Julie Letellier was an overnight guest at the James Letelliers and did some yard work before the drizzly weather set in on Saturday. When she turned the water on at the Burma garden spot, it really did decide settle down and rain. Rain is the name of the game these days. We woke up to a lovely slow steady rain on Sunday and it continued through out the day. Rain is worth more than pennies from heaven in this country! We are a very grateful people and with such a dry winter, we began to wonder if it even could rain. The moisture was just what the doctor ordered for this country and it came at the right time, too. It was fun to hear reports of anywhere to 1.5 inches to 2.8 inches and everywhere in between. We are thankful for every drop! Have a great week!
State Treasurer’s office continues search for owners of unclaimed property
--by Elizabeth “Sam” Grosz Community News Service Whether it is a forgotten safety deposit box or a lost dividend check, or even misplaced shares of stock, the state of South Dakota is the keeper of unclaimed property. However, State Treasurer Rich Sattgast and his staff don’t necessarily want to keep the property forever. In fact, they actively work to get such items back to their rightful owners. Now, with several innovative ideas in place, Sattgast and Unclaimed Property Administrator Lee DeJabet already are seeing large increases in inquiries about such property, and getting it back in the hands of the rightful owners. But, just what is unclaimed property? “We get property in from the financial institutions, life insurance, banks, credit card companies, and safe deposit boxes or stock,” said DeJabet, and it is put into the department’s data base with the last known person, address, or “whatever the holder (financial institution) gives us.” Financial institutions from all over the nation are required to do that each year with unclaimed property, she said. Once the state has it, the state is required to advertise what it is holding. The advertising season recently ended for the department, and inquiries have been pouring in. The ads listed names, addresses and a file number for each unclaimed property and are regionalized for the area served by the newspaper. “Now we will ask you a few questions,” said DeJabet about the process, “if we are talking to you on the phone.” That will be such things as name, address and social security number. If that matches, she said, a claim form will be mailed out. The claim form will have on it how much the property is, where it came from, how much it is, and the guidelines, or documentation the department needs. “Two things we always require,” said DeJabet, “are a governmentissued photo ID and your social security number.” There will also have to be proof if a name has changed, she added. Then, depending on what kind of property it is, business, inheritance and such, all have their own type of documentation needed, she said. Once the applicant returns the claim form, she said, and “everything is good, we process it and it goes for payment.” This generally takes 10 days, DeJabet said, but can take up to three weeks, because after the Treasurer’s office processes the claim, it goes to the State Auditor for issuance of the check. It may only take one to two days at the Treasurer’s office, she said, but once it gets to the Auditor’s office, it has to be checked and placed on their payment schedule. If either office is experiencing high volume, it can take the three-week span. If there are any problems in locating information, however, it can take longer. That is especially true when it involves someone who has died, DeJabet noted, and heirs are trying to locate the required information. However, using the department’s Internet site, www.sdtreasurer.gov, can greatly speed up the process, with the key being to have the right information to submit. If after searching the list at the site, and finding property, there is a claim form to complete. Print the form and sign it, photocopy the requested documentation, and mail it to the State Treasurer’s Office. A search can also be requested by phone, calling the division at 1866-357-2547, or emailing at unclaimed@sdtreasurer.gov. Written requests for searches may be sent to State Treasurer Rich Sattgast, Unclaimed Property Division, 500 E. Capitol Ave., Pierre SD 57501. Items to include are your legal name, prior name if it has changed, current mailing address and phone number. If a search of someone else’s name is requested, the relationship with that person must be included. “It’s good to do the Internet search,” reminded Sattgast, since the ad listing in the newspapers is only the current year. There also is a dollar limit for those listed in the ads, said DeJabet. The website, she said, lists everything $10 and up. Typically, she said, if a claim is made, the staff will check also to see if there is anything under $10. “So, then you’ll find that $1.83 dividend,” DeJabet added, “and we’ll attach it.” Currently, Sattgast said, nothing under the $50 limit is listed in the advertisement. Come July 1, when new legislation goes into effect, that limit will increase to $125. But the website still will have everything $10 and up, DeJabet said, and “we have the ability to change that limit.” However, the problem with seeing that mythical $1.18, she said, is that people will see that and won’t act on it. If a claim form is not returned in 120 days, DeJabet said, and no response received to the reminder sent out halfway through, “we will drop your claim, because as you can imagine, we get thousands of claims and they will remain open and in our system if we don’t have a deadline.” It always can be refiled, said Sattgast, adding, “these properties are in perpetuity—there is no deadline that they no longer belong to the person.” “Our database is kept forever,” said DeJabet, adding, “we never erase your name… if it has not been paid out, you will always be in there.” It is, she said, what is called “a perpetual liability to the state of South Dakota—we are obligated to pay that at any point in time, and your heirs can come back and claim it.” And, she added, many do. With about 9,000 new properties a year to handle, the two explained, and only three staff members, it is not feasible to do cold calling, searching for people, even though some may appear obvious to the casual observer. DeJabet said they do go through and pull out the public entities that may be listed. And, Sattgast noted, “we have been advised by the Attorney General not to do a cold call,” since it could be a mistaken identity. If something is sent out to somebody in error, agreed DeJabet, “it becomes very difficult for them to understand” when it is found it does not belong to them after all. Sattgast said he encourages people to check, since the state is currently holding $23 million worth of property… just waiting for rightful owners to claim. Sattgast and staff members are not just sitting back waiting for you to call, however… they are doing what they can to be visible and available at large statewide or regional gatherings of people, such as at the Sioux Empire Home Show, the Black Hills Home Show, the State Fair, the Sioux Empire Fair, Brown County Fair and DakotaFest in Mitchell. And the newspaper advertising that is done each year reaps benefits seen in increased numbers of applicants. By emphasizing the web page in that advertising this year, DeJabet said, there were 2,000 more claims submitted as a result during the three-week cycle of advertising. People who call in and are on call waiting also are encouraged to use the web page. People with so-called “smart phones” can scan the ap logo in printed information to also take them to the information. During the non-advertising time frame, she said, “we average 50 per day… but that is actually picking up as people become more aware.” Sattgast said the division has two main responsibilities: one is finding the properties out there, and the other is reuniting them with the people to whom it rightfully belongs. “You can write to us,” DeJabet said, adding, “you can call us, you can check on-line, you can check on your phone, you can visit us at the Fair or the Home Show, you can walk in—lots of ways to get to us.” “And we love to give money away— we are one of the few government agencies that likes to give money away.”

Grady Davis celebrated his twelfth birthday a couple times this last week. On Saturday, he and his family journeyed to Wall where they hooked up with their Irish friend, Trisha, visited with her and some friends of hers, toured Wall Drug, etc. Trisha has stayed at the Fortune Bed and Breakfast several times, and Francie visited her in Ireland last year. Then at Cowboy Church, held at the hall in Belvidere on Wednesday evening, they had a birthday cake and ice cream. Grady’s mom, Francie, is currently editing the South Dakota poetry magazine and will be working on that through April instead of writing Belvidere news. Rudy Reimann visited his folks, Rick and Rayma, in Midland on Friday and Saturday. His brothers, Stanley and Forrest, were home since they came to attend the Mike Schofield funeral in Philip on Friday. Rudy was a pallbearer at the funeral. Rudy was quite a bit younger than Mike but still considered him a good friend. Rudy said they had an inch of rain in Midland by Sunday morning and more came throughout the day. Bunny Green was visited on Saturday by her former daughter-inlaw, Penny, of Sturgis. Penny and a friend of hers brought all kinds of goodies with them for dinner and left the remainder for Bunny to use later. Penny is an artist, and Bunny says she can really paint. Bunny visited with Betty Kusick on the phone this week, but the two didn’t get together in person. Bunny also got a graduation announcement from the daughter of Dan Davidson of Idaho. Dan is the son of Marguerite Drabek and ran the truck stop in Kadoka for a number of years. He had some fairly serious health problems for a few years but seems to be recovered from those at present. Larry Grimme stopped by briefly on Sunday as did Wally Wells. Bunny also learned this week that her granddaughter, Cindy Houck’s husband, Don, lost his sister in a car accident recently and had to fly to the funeral. Bill and Norma Headlee were visited a couple times this weekend by their daughter, Corale Dorn, and family of Dell Rapids. The Dorns were coming and going to Spearfish where they participated in the Whirlwind Horse memorial run. This was in commemoration of a high-school and college classmate of some family members that had been killed in a car accident. Corale’s sister, Monica, is another runner in the family but didn’t participate in the run this year since she is expecting a baby in June. This was a long run but shorter versions were also available. Norma figured between Corale, her husband, and kids, a goodly number of miles were covered. Headlees were also visited by Norma’s sister, Marge Kraushaar, of Illionois this week. Marge had been staying with her brother, Tom DeVries, for a few days, and they both came over for supper one day when Corale and family were there. The Headlee household was busy last weekend over Easter with daughters, Monica, Donella, and Anora, on hand with various family members. Several kids were involved which required the hiding and finding of lots of Easter eggs. Greg Badure said they have been staying fairly close to home this week, in part because the kids had colds and such. There wasn’t even Sunday school on Sunday since teacher, Merry Willard, called and said she wasn’t in to fighting muddy roads to come in that day. Greg said they will go back to the 12-hour days required for rest-area maintenance starting in mid-May. Out at the ranch, Al and Bax are into calving and are being assisted this year again by Paul Scherff. Paul works most of the year on a dude ranch, the H F Bar, near Buffalo and Sheridan, Wyoming. It is in the foothills of the Bighorn Mountains. This is the same ranch

State Fair looks for South Dakota talent
A long-time tradition at the South Dakota State Fair is the Sherwin Linton Show on the Centennial Stage, and the popular musician is looking for South Dakota talent to join him this summer at the Fair. A large part of Linton’s time is spent finding and presenting South Dakota talent at the State Fair. The Fair and Linton are asking for musicians, singers and variety performers to submit materials to the Fair for consideration to perform as guests with “The Sherwin Linton Show,” which performs three times daily on the Centennial Stage during the State Fair. “We like to invite entertainers of all ages, both professional and nonprofessional, to be on stage with us. They may use pre-recorded tracks for backup or play their own instruments,” Linton said. “The experience and exposure are very positive things not only for our audience but also the performers.” Linton invited two of last year’s guests, 18-year-old Lane Moore of Vivian and eight-year-old Delaney Johnston of Summit, to sing on his show at the Midwest Country Music Theater in Sandstone, Minn. The Midwest Country show is aired nationally each week on the RFD TV Network. For consideration for the 2012 South Dakota State Fair, please submit a photo, brief bio and CD or DVD to: Sherwin Linton, Centennial Stage, South Dakota State Fair, 890 3rd Street SW, Huron, SD 57350. The 2012 South Dakota State Fair will run from Thursday, Aug. 30 through Monday, Sept. 3. Channel Seeds Preview night will be Wednesday, Aug. 29.

FFA competition continues, headed to state convention in Brookings
"The healthiest competition occurs when average people win by putting above average effort." -Colin Powell The Kadoka FFA Chapter is back at it again! On April 4th the CDE teams traveled to Philip and Wall to compete in the District FFA Career Development Event. Once again all of the teams did great, pushing to the fullest potential of each student. The Farm Management team placed first with Brandon Dale placing 2nd individually, Chance Knutson placed 3rd, Kenar VanderMay in 5th and Sean Ireland picking up the 8th position. The Natural Resources team placed 3rd overall, with CIint Stout in 8th place, and Aage Cepecha in 10th independently. The Livestock Judging team had a rough go overall, but Jed Brown  lead the team with a 6thplace finish. The Horse Judging  team placed 1st. Nicole VanderMay placed first individually, with Tessa Stout trailing close behind in 3rd place. Logan Ammons was 4th, True Buchholz 6th and Katie Lensegrav took 7th. This was the first time that all of the Horse Judging team placed in the top ten. It is a very great accomplishment. The Range Plant I.D. team had another 1st-place finish in the team standings. Kate Rasmussen placed 1st independently, with Austin Thayer in 4th, Myles Addison 6th and Logan Christensen in 7th place. This week the FFA Chapter will be traveling to the State Convention in Brookings, SD. A follow up of the convention will be with held in the following week’s paper. As always, we appreciate your support of the FFA Chapter. --Tessa Stout
tured above), and also pictured bottom with Syder Sanftner, Chris Anderson and Ty Merchen spent a day exploring the Mitchell Technical Institute. --courtesy photo On Wednesday the 11th of April, five students from Kadoka Area High School attended the Mitchell Technical Institute’s exploration day. Bri Stone and Sierra Sitting Up explored the culinary school and were able to check out housing options as well. Ty Merchen, Ryder Sanftner and Chris Anderson took in the power sports major, farm and industrial tech, carpentry and diesel engines. The students represented Kadoka well, and seemed impressed with the new building and advancement that is taking place at MTI. Below are some of the student responses from the day. What I can say about the trip is it was very fun -- there was some stuff I like and didn’t really like. I didn’t like the ag technical because there was too much talking and they were saying stuff I all ready know. But my last class was very good -- we got to see a lot of equipment they worked on. I really liked Mitchell but I would like to see what other schools have too. --Ty Merchen The MTI visit helped me learn more about what kind of thing I am able to do, my career was carpentry, it’s what I was looking at doing. But I found out a lot about power sports and farm power. I talked a lot about types of financial aid and where I could live; I found more about road construction and power line careers. At this point I don't know what I am doing, but I have a lot of information about the careers, financial aid and types of scholarships I might try and find. I have a lot to think about until I graduate, but at least I know what kind of classes I could take to help me in tech school. I’ll have to get my grades up and come in on time to school. I’ll have to try a lot more to get my grades up and keep them up, if I want to go to MTI, but I think I am going to have to grow up a little before I start thinking about a school and actually pass high school! --Chris Anderson I felt like the trip to Mitchell was a great learning experience to see the type of environment that I will be working in and the way that you behave in a shop such as the way our tour guides showed us they act. I felt like this gave me a better outlook at going to school there and I believe I will. Thank you for your patience and cooperation on helping us out and taking time out of your day to show us what we can look forward to in college. --Ryder Sanftner

Bob Fanning, Plant Pathology Field Specialist • 605-842-1267 2012 Wheat GDD Ahead of Normal; Frost Damage? As the warm winter of 2011-12 transitioned to a warm spring, a common topic of conversation has been the winter wheat getting too big too fast. The threat of a late spring frost, when wheat is in an advanced growth stage and impacts to yields are greater is still possible. To determine how far ahead of normal the 2012 winter wheat crop is; visit the South Dakota “Automatic Weather Data Network (AWDN) archived degree days” website: http://climate.sdstate.edu/awdn/archive/degreedays.asp. Choose the time period you are interested in and the automatic weather station you would like to calculate Growing Degree Days (GDD) for. For wheat GDD, enter 32 in the GDD box and 95/32 in the methods boxes. Wheat GDD advanced early and quickly in 2012 compared to normal in most or all locations in South Dakota. At the Hamill, SD AWDN, from February 1 to April 10, accumulated wheat GDD were 934, compared to the normal level of 510. With a normal accumulation of wheat GDD of 15 per day for this time of year, one can calculate that winter wheat development is approximately 4 weeks ahead of normal. The growth stages of wheat are not strictly tied to, but highly dependent on GDD. The early and rapid progress of wheat GDD in 2012 has led to winter wheat growth stages advancing much earlier in the year than normal. The progress of wheat growth stages is also affected by the photoperiod (length of day) and vernalization (cold temperature) requirements of various varieties. Data for accumulated GDD for the various growth stages of wheat can be found in the Montana State University publication, “Using Growing Degree Days to Predict Plant Stages.”: http://msuextension.org/publications/AgandNaturalResources/MT200103AG.pdf. Reports of early-planted winter wheat beginning to joint in southcentral South Dakota began coming in as early as April 6. With 50% probability of the last spring frost (28 degrees F) ranging from midApril to Mid-May across most of the wheat growing area in South Dakota, plenty of opportunity remains for damaging frosts to occur. The last spring frost can also occur later than the “50% probability” dates, and an analysis conducted by SDSU Extension Climatologists suggests that late spring frosts are more common following dry winters. The Kansas State University publication: “Spring Freeze Injury to Kansas Wheat”: http://www.ksre.ksu.edu/library/cr psl2/c646.pdf is an excellent resource to assess freeze injury to wheat. The growth stages, approximate temperature (duration of 2 hours) at which injury occurs, and yield effects are: tillering – 12 degrees F, slight to moderate; jointing – 24 degrees F, moderate to severe; boot – 28 degrees F, moderate to severe; heading – 30 degrees F, severe; flowering – 30 degrees F, severe; milk – 28 degrees F, moderate to severe; and dough – 28 degrees F, slight to moderate. For more information, visit http://igrow.org/ or contact your Regional Extension Center. Buckbrush (Western Snowberry) Control A question recently came in regarding control of buckbrush, or western snowberry in pastures. Herbicides rated “Good” for buckbrush control in “Weed Control in Pasture & Range” include 2,4-D, Escort and Chaparral. This and other publications in the SDSU Weed Control factsheet series are available at your Extension Center or online at: http://www.sdstate.edu/ps/extension/weed-mgmt/weed-mgmtpubs.cfm.

Controlling meal costs tips
There are many ways to stretch your food dollar. Everyone wants to get their money’s worth in food these days. Healthful eating doesn’t have to cost more. It might even cost less. Healthy foods give you more value for your dollar. Controlling food costs wisely involves careful grocery shopping. You will spend more if you are hungry, so try to eat something before you go shopping. Consider shopping alone; it may allow you more time to read labels and compare prices if you aren’t distracted by family members. Read labels so you’ll know what you are paying for. Compare cost of similar food items by using unit pricing. To find the best buy, you need to compare the costs of the amounts you need for a meal or for a serving. Planning ahead will assist you in spending less on food. Write a weekly meal plan. It should include all daily meals plus snacks and even those eaten away from home. Try to include at least one “planned over” meal per week to use leftover food from another meal. Check your fridge and cupboards to see what you already have on hand, then make a shopping list and stick to it. When shopping, choose basic, nutritious foods rather than readyto-eat, highly processed and refined foods. Foods that are more convenient usually cost more. As an example, consider choosing unsweetened fruit juice, water or low fat milk instead of soft drinks. Another option would be to select homemade, lightly salted popcorn, dry roasted nuts or natural nuts, instead of snack chips. Try to shop just once a week. It’s easier to make wise choices if you shop less often. Use coupons for foods you really want. A food isn’t a good deal if no one eats it. Sometimes processed foods are less expensive, but they are usually higher in fat, sugar, salt and artificial ingredients and lower in vitamins, minerals and fiber. These types of foods are fine to eat once in a while, but you should plan to select more nutritious foods to eat daily. Food is a manageable expense, so it can be a focus for reduced spending when money is tight. By planning ahead and managing your money wisely, you can still serve meals that are delicious and nutritious. Go to http://www.mealsmatter.org/MealPlanning/ for meal planning tools created to make healthy meal planning easier for your family. --by Ann Schwader, Nutrition Field Specialist SDSU Extension-Winner Regional Extension Center

SDSU Extension forestry specialist discusses freeze, tree health
After the April 9 freeze, many South Dakotan's are asking, "What will last night's freeze do to my trees?" Not as much as you think, is John Ball's answer. The SDSU professor, SDSU Extension Forestry Specialist and the South Dakota Department of Agriculture, Forestry Health Specialist, says some of the tree's foliage will recover, some foliage will show blackened margins but otherwise recover, and some trees will lose most of their leaves from the frost however, the good news is much of this foliage will be replaced. "The tender foliage on trees that are leafing out is sensitive to freeze injury and I already saw some wilting leaves this morning, however, fortunately many tree species to have a "reserve chute" and will put out a second set of leaves in the next few weeks to replace the lost ones," Ball said. He adds, "We saw this about three years ago in the north-central part of the state and the trees recovered just fine. The biggest problem will be the flowering trees." Ball explains that once the flowers are killed, that's it. "You will not get replacement flowers this spring, so the loss of the flowers means no fruit this fall on the pears and plums that are in bloom right now," he said. "At least in the northern half of the state the apples have not bloomed yet so they should be fine. But in the southern half of South Dakota, where the apples were blooming, we may see less fruit set on apples as well as the other fruit tree crops."
