Through dedication, determination, help City council approves payment to from several agencies ground breaking Complete Concrete, offers contracts for swimming pool employees begins for Parmelee fire hall
~ by Robyn Jones ~ The Kadoka City Council held a special meeting on Thursday, April 19 at 5:30 p.m. Mayor Harry Weller, Micki Word, Kieth Prang and Dick Stolley were present at the meeting. A bill was presented from Complete Concrete in the amount of $40,896. Complete Concrete is in the process of installing the fire sprinkler system at the Kadoka Nursing Home and the bill is for the work that has been completed. This amount will be paid by the Community Development Block Grant, which was awarded to the Kadoka Nursing Home. The City of Kadoka acts as the operating agency for the transfer of the grant funds. A motion carried to approve the bill. At this time, Word excused herself from the meeting, due to a conflict of interest, and Ryan Willert was contacted via telephone for the remainder of the meeting. Weller, Stolley and Willert previously conducted interviews with individuals who applied for the swimming pool positions. Weller stated that a current fulltime city employee has applied for a position at the swimming pool. Weller said that according to the SD Municipal League, if an employee exceeds 40 hours of work, regardless of the job position, they must be compensated for overtime hours. On a recommendation of the committee who conducted the interviews, Stolley made a motion, seconded by Willert to offer Emmy Antonsen co-manager position at

The community of Parmelee, South Dakota, gathered Tuesday, April 17 to celebrate the ground breaking of a new fire hall. A dream that started over four years ago, the fire hall will be home to the Parmelee Volunteer Fire Department (PVFD) located on the Rosebud Indian Reservation. Through continued dedication and determination, PVFD partnered with over ten different agencies and groups such as the Todd County Commissioners, State of South Dakota, Todd County Emergency Management, Rosebud Sioux Tribe-Tribal President and entities, BIA, South Central RC&D, South Dakota Department of Agriculture, and the Central South Dakota Enhancement District. South Dakota USDA Rural Development provided funding for the project totaling $120,000 through a $55,000 Community Facility Direct loan and $65,000 Community Facility grant, along with other funding including a $10,000 applicant contribution, and $130,000 Community Development Block Grant from the State of South Dakota for a total project cost of $260,000. The fire department and community, led by local resident Susan Kary, were able to access financial resources and build the support from the community for the project. “This project exemplifies President Obama’s commitment to invest in improved infrastructure and is a prime example of how Rural Development programs can assist with the development of essential community services,” said Rural Development State Director Elsie M. Meeks. “The leaders of this small community determined that they were in need of a fire station – they had already secured a fire truck – and they persevered until they secured the funding, even though it took them over four years.” Parmelee is approximately 21 miles from the closest fire department and responses to fires sometimes takes up to 45 minutes. The need for the new fire hall was apparent for quicker response times for emergency situations and for storage of trucks and equipment. The new fire hall will be a 50’x70 foot pre-engineered building with three bays and portion of the facility will be made available for community functions. The 20 person volunteer fire department serves a population of 1,188. “I wish to thank everyone who has so willingly supported us in our efforts,” said Susan Kary, Secretary for the Parmelee Volunteer Fire Department. “This wouldn’t have been possible without the partnerships. We appreciate everyone who participated in our event. It means so much to our volunteer fire men and women and our small community to see this project become a reality.” USDA Rural Development has eight offices in the state serving South Dakotans living in rural areas and communities. Office locations include a state office in Huron, along with area offices in Aberdeen, Mitchell, Pierre, Rapid City, Sioux Falls, Watertown and Yankton. Further information on this and other programs offered by USDA Rural Development is available by calling (605) 352-1100, by visiting www.rurdev.usda.gov/sd or at any local area office.

For the final push into the home stretch of the corduroy blue jackets and black pants, the Kadoka Area FFA Chapter headed to Brookings for the State FFA CDE competitions April 15-17. Each team placed exceptionally well against thousands of other students, and hundreds of other teams. To get the chapter started off in the right direction on Sunday afternoon, the Natural Resources team competed for their place. The team placed 9th of 61 teams in the state competition with each individual placing remarkably well. Aage Ceplecha placed 12th walking home in the gold category, Kassidy Ferguson placed 31st in the silver, Kwincy Ferguson in 40th also in the silver and Alex Smiley in 53rd closing the team with a silver place. The Livestock Evaluation team had a bit of a rough go at state but still was able to bring home a few good places from the event. The team placed 30th overall out of 66 teams, with all members taking home the bronze award. Freshmen Jed Brown lead the team with a 67th place finish, Lane Patterson placed 120th, Alex Smiley 139th and Gavin DeVries in 182nd. The Agricultural Business Management team placed very well at state bringing home a gold award, and receiving 3rd place on the whole. Chance Knutson lead the team with a 7th place finish, and a gold award. Brandon Dale trailed close behind with the 8th place finish also with a gold award, Kenar VanderMay just missed the top ten and placed 11th in the silver category. Sean Ireland brought the team home with the 45th place. The Range Plant ID team placed first overall, with Myles Addison placing second, Austin Thayer in 3rd, Kate Rasmussen in 6th and Chance Knutson in 8th. The Horse Evaluation team also did an extraordinary job bringing home the 10th place overall. Tessa Stout lead the team with a 25th place finish in the silver category, Nicole VanderMay followed in 40th place also in the silver award category. Katie Lensegrav placed 59th in the bronze category, and Logan Ammons placed 66th also in the bronze category. All of the teams put in exceptional effort, hard work and after many hours of studying it all paid off in the end. For now it’s time to put the corduroy jackets back in the closet, and learn something new… Let’s study! --Tessa Stout
The lights are on at historic Mt. Moriah Lodge, a Kadoka Main Street icon. Built in 1916, the three story Neo-Classical style building was raised in less than a year by the local masonic members. Many of those masons brought their skills 10 years before, when they helped found Kadoka as the railroad came through. It was no average plasterer who finished the 20 foot, vaulted ceiling of the lodge's main meeting room. Records indicate that when the funding, from the sale of bonds, was exceeded by $2,000 a member, who ranched locally, covered the shortfall out of his own pocket. Most of the lumber, including birdseye maple flooring and cherry pocket doors, came from a sawmill in Michigan owned by one of the charter member's father. The lodge building was actually erected before main street was leveled (see photo on pg. 79 of old Jackson and Washabaugh Co. history book). On it's dedication the building was touted as “the largest edifice of it's kind in the world, for the size of the membership and the community”. At that time the organization was doubling it's membership annually. Some early members from Bennett Co. would catch the train in Merriman, NE, ride via Rapid City and down to Kadoka for monthly meetings.
Municipal officials meet in Kadoka
More than 31 municipal officials representing six cities gathered at the South Dakota Municipal League’s annual District 8 Meeting, held in Kadoka on April 17. Yvonne Taylor, South Dakota Municipal League Executive Director, spoke about the outcome of the 2012 Legislative Session, and the effect new laws will have on South Dakota municipalities. Taylor also discussed the direction and future of the Municipal League and services offered to the municipalities. “More and more we are seeing the need to get better information out to the citizens and legislators. Municipal government provides a vast array of services, and people need to be informed of where their tax dollars are going. This type of education can only benefit municipal government. The taxpayers would be very proud of their local government if they were fully aware of how much service a municipality provides at a relatively low cost,” Taylor said. Harry Weller, mayor in Kadoka, was re-elected as District 8 Chair and Jackie Stilwell, utility clerk in Kadoka, was re-elected as vice chair.
Through the years Mt. Moriah Lodge has not only been a landmark, but a real part of the community. It has served as a fraternal meeting place for Masons, Eastern Star and Job's Daughters, a WPA office, temporary classrooms, ballroom, gymnastics floor, quilt showroom and, on one occasion, a wedding facility. The Lion's Club met monthly and held their Bingo nights in the lodge basement for many years. Chances are most Jackson Co. residents have dined there at Election Day Luncheons, Grazing Association banquets, bake sales and other fine meals. Interestingly the third floor was even home to a destitute masonic brother and his family for a time during the Great Depression. Mt. Moriah Lodge is on the National Register of Historic Places for it's unique architecture and the role it's members played in Jackson County history. The membership has received an historic grant for repair and painting of the exterior, scheduled for spring. Two years ago in January was the historic property's darkest hour when extensive flood damage from frozen pipes required the basement be gutted. With only fire insurance coverage, reclamation is still ongoing. To date the lower level lobby and bathrooms have been restored. The dining room and kitchen work in the 33 x 66 foot basement is ongoing. If you see the light on, knock on the side door and come on in. You'll probably be treated to an historic tour and maybe some homemade cookies.

The disease manifests itself internally with an elevated pH and mineral content, more water and gas under pressure. Wetwood is a bacterial disease. The internal liquid spreads into the outer sapwood and from there moves out of the tree through cracks in branch crotches or old pruning wounds. The bark bleaching is due to the high pH of this liquid. The disease is sometimes associated with symptoms of leaf scorch and yellows and sometimes even branch dieback. However, often the only symptom expressed by the disease is the streaking on the bark and otherwise the tree grows just fine. Regardless there
are no effective treatments for the disease and drilling holes in the tree to relieve pressure may cause more problems than it cures. For more information on tree and shrub diseases, insect pests and other ailments, click the “Pest Alert Archives” on the “Educational Information” page on the SD Dept of Ag, “Conservation & Forestry” website: http://sdda.sd.gov/Forestry/educational-information/default.aspx. Black Knot Disease of Cherry and Plum Black knot, also known as dead man’s finger, is a very common fungal disease of cherry and plums. These black, coal-like galls, sometimes covered with a white power, can often be found lining the branches and trunks of susceptible trees. A common recommendation is to prune out these galls during the winter months, but this has very limited value. First, these galls are the second year’s infection. The first year infection is only indicated by a slight greenish swelling of the tissue. If these shoots are not also removed they will grow to form the blacked masses the following year, so it is hard to get ahead of the disease by pruning. The other problem is only certain trees are very susceptible to black knot and once they get the disease you can probably expect the tree to become infected again regardless of your pruning efforts. Cutting the tree down is probably the best approach. When planting cherry (including chokecherry) and plum, look for varieties resistant to the disease.

The legacy of our China daughters
It was the trip of a lifetime. Almost 16 years ago ten families from all over the U.S. were brought together in a southern Chinese city to adopt baby girls. This summer, nine of these same families brought our daughters back to see their birth country. This time we started up north near Beijing at a different orphanage, an American church-sponsored place for children with special needs. They find donation money for surgery to fix cleft lips, heart defects, tumors and boney malformations, and then they help these kids get adopted. Our nine girls, along with three sisters and ten parents, assigned themselves the job of playing with those kids for two days, in order to give back a little before we started touring. Then we journeyed to see the Great Wall, Tiananmen Square, the Forbidden City, terra cotta soldiers, a panda preserve, and finally the three orphanages from where our children originally came. We were welcomed with the red-carpet treatment by orphanage directors and high-level government officials, as no large group such as ours had as yet returned in this way. There are several health related issues in China, about which we can learn, starting with water and air pollution. There a clean environment appears a less important priority. Although their economy appears to be booming with big public works construction, the streets were filled with many more cars, motor scooters, and fewer bikes than 16 years ago. Cigarette smoke hung everywhere, including restaurants, as many more obviously smoke in China than in the U.S. Water was not as clean as we are used to, and we used bottled water even to brush teeth. I return to the American soil appreciating more than ever our clean air, skies, and water. But China has a wonderful tradition worth bringing here. In every square and public gathering place, each morning and evening, even in the steamy heat, we saw people happily exercising, dancing, stretching, and moving… mostly to music. As one young guide told me, “Especially the elderly realize that the key to staying alive is being active.” We in the US would benefit by following that example. Finally I would emphasize, and I know I speak for our nine families with China daughters, that the warm sharing nature and the welcoming culture of the people of China made it the trip of a lifetime.

Altering Recipes for Health Have you ever found a recipe that looks so tasty you can hardly wait to prepare it—but when you study it closer, you realize it may not be good for your health? Do you have a collection of delicious family recipes that have been handed down through the years? Have you ever considered making small changes to those recipes that would decrease problem ingredients with healthier ingredient substitutes? Use the Step Approach to alter your favorite recipes for good health. The First Step is to look for the “problem ingredients” that make a recipe high in fat, cholesterol and sodium. This will get you on track with the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans, which describe a healthy diet as one that: 1. Emphasizes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, and fat-free or lowfat milk and milk products; 2. Includes lean meats, poultry, fish,
Read John 4:7-30 Take an honest look at your life. Do you feel whole and complete, or is there the sense that something's missing? If you're aware of an emptiness, what are you In Search of Wholeness using to try and fill that void? Is it relationships with family and friends? Or have you opted for achievements, hoping they will bring a sense of significance? Maybe you use a substance or activity of some kind to deaden the need or to bring temporary comfort. Jesus met a woman with just such an empty place in her soul. She was longing for love but had been repeatedly rejected. In those days, a man could divorce his wife simply because she displeased him in some way. The Samaritan woman had gone through this rejection five times and was now seeking to fill up her soul with a man who wasn't her husband. She probably tried to cover up her emptiness so those around her wouldn't see her hurt, but when Jesus met her at the well and told her all that she had done, her days of hiding were over. She had finally found the only One who could bring wholeness to her life. Before you can fill the emptiness in your soul, you, too, must let Christ's piercing gaze penetrate into the depths of your heart and reveal the root cause of your incompleteness. We were created for God. All other pursuits are inadequate substitutes and will never bring the lasting satisfaction we are seeking. Life has a way of beating us down, leaving us empty and disillusioned. But when we allow Christ unrestricted access to our hearts, He fills us up with His unfailing love.

beans, eggs, and nuts; and 3. Is low in saturated fats, trans fats, cholesterol, salt, sodium, and added sugars. The Second Step is to find your ingredient substitutes. Do this by reducing the amount or substitute an ingredient that is healthier for you. You can reduce the fat in baking by one-third to one-half in recipes. Another option is to use applesauce; if the recipe calls for 1 cup of butter--use 1 cup of applesauce in place of the butter. Try using plain, non-fat yogurt in place of sour cream. Reduce your sodium to 2300 mg a day or less. Try replacing salt with herbs and spices to flavor foods. Consider using fruit juice or wine for cooking liquid instead of broth or bouillon. Choose no-salt added products. Reduce sugar by one-quarter to one-third in baked goods and desserts (this saves 200 to 300 calories.) Increase flavorings such as cinnamon or vanilla to enhance the sweetness. The Third Step is to change your method of preparation. As an example, try baking an item instead of frying it. Leave skins on fruits and vegetables when possible to increase fiber. Altering recipes for good health doesn’t have to be a difficult challenge. Healthy, tasty cooking can include decreasing fat, sugar and salt in most recipes, while increasing the fiber, vitamins and minerals.

calves branded up on Sunday. Brett Bonenberger said they have synchronized their heifers and are expecting to start artificially inseminating them this week. They put most of the cattle out to summer pasture on Sunday. Ronda and Rick Dennis left early Wednesday morning pulling a U-haul trailer to Denver, CO. Since their daughter, Bobbi, and Ben recently purchased a new home, it was time to get Bobbi’s belongings out of storage. Ronda and Rick returned home on Sunday evening. Lee Addison said Rhonda continues to recuperate from the knee surgery she had in January. Things are not going as fast as she would like, but they’re going. There is no dancing or such activities just yet. They also got some baby chicks recently and are hoping to eventually have some fried chicken and some eggs if the coyotes don’t manage to have a field day. Frank Carlson has been working on the training of some colts lately. He’s also been helping Clair and JoAnn Bitting with tending cattle part of the time. He said he’s ready to start the branding season which he says is a good time of getting together with the other cowboys around. Colter Carlson said they are mostly overseeing the calving process. Ranch owner, Ken Wilson, came from North Carolina last week, helped a few days with this and that, and flew back home on Sunday.

Marjorie Anne Letellier • 462-6228 Resolve says, “I will.” The man says, “I will climb this mountain. They told me it is too high, too far, too steep, too rocky and too difficult. But it is my mountain. I will climb it. You will soon see me waving from the top of it or dead on the side from trying.” John Rohn Pastor Denke visited in the Bill and Marjorie Letellier home on Monday. Harry and Jeanne Merchen kept appointments in Hot Springs and Rapid City on Monday. Harry has been enjoying using his hundred year old John Deere walking plow lately. Harry restored the antique this winter while in Arizona. He and Jeanne planted potatoes with it last week. Sounds like fun, guys. Tuesday morning the James Letelliers were among the 100 folks attending the groundbreaking for the new fire hall at Parmelee. Other area folks attending were Howard and Nette Heinert, Ben Huber, representing the White River Fire Department, and the Rosebud Sioux Tribe sent their fire crew with their trucks as well. Howard Heinert has been with the project from its beginning in 2004, when he served as a county commissioner; Nette is serving as treasurer. It was a very nice celebration complete with dignitaries and gold shovels and a chili lunch was served at the Lord’s Warriors Lutheran Church following the event. Little Michael Smith with his red fireman’s helmet and gold shovel stole the show. Unless you live in an “out of the way” place like Parmelee, you have no idea what a big deal this really is for them to have their own fire trucks and hall. It will be nice to be able to protect their own homes and lands in case of fire without having to hope and pray that a distant fire department aren’t already busy somewhere else. When lightning strikes it usually does it in more places than one that same night. The folks all went home anxious to see the day when they can actually have a new fire hall standing at the site -- ready to protect the fire trucks, that will in turn protect them. The surrounding residents sure appreciate Susan Kary, who has spearheaded the entire fire hall project. Tuesday, Bill and Marjorie Letellier accompanied Gary Letellier to Winner. They also traveled with him to Rapid City on Thursday. Glad to hear you are getting out some. Norris School News: The Norris School was glad to report they had 67 percent of the parents attending parent-teacher conferences last Thursday afternoon. This Thursday the Academic Rally Day will be held in White River. Math and spelling contests will be held. The students plan to recite their poems in their rooms during the afternoon. Their parents are invited to attend.
Up The Wall
Look at the pictures on your walls. What do they tell about you? Quite a bit, probably. We, for example, have a picture of two young kids running down the hill for home after being cooped up in a country school all day. This might indicate that wife Corinne is a school teacher and has taught at a country school, which is so. We also have a nice print of a butte that figured largely in Corinne’s childhood since it sticks up above the landscape near her hometown and is pretty hard to miss. Another large print is of a stream running through forested hills as might be seen in the western part of our state and not far from the butte previously mentioned. Fortunately, I like at least two of those paintings. I attended a country school in the early grades, and, although I have no particular feelings about the butte, it is well done in colors that please me. The forested hills not so much since mountains and forests tend to give me claustrophobia, but the scene is of a clearing and the greens are in pleasant tones. I, too, have a wall hanging that isn’t a favorite with Corinne. It’s a dream catcher with the skull of a small animal in the center. Somehow, my frau isn’t big on suspending dead critters from the wall, but at least she hasn’t snatched the thing down and flung it out the door just yet. She has no major objection to the various sunset and silhouette photos of mine that I’ve enlarged and hung here and there. Being ranchers and of the rural persuasion, we are not short of the next horse picture either or shots of particularly nice birds and flowers. In many homes in this area, cowboy is king. You might see major wall hangings of John Wayne as he appeared in one of his Western movies. Sitting around the room might be various objects or representations of such things as cowboy hats, boots, spurs, chaps, saddles, horses, cattle, tack, ropes and the like. Similarly, on the coast, you are apt to find images of the ocean, surf, ships, seashells, and that sort of thing. Since I do love the ocean although second to the prairie, I do have a large original painting of waves rolling up onto a beach. It’s quite nice but isn’t hanging right now as there is no good place for it, nor are oceans high on the hit parade with Corinne. We once stayed at a motel that was on a pier over a bay, and she came down with bronchitis. She also inclines towards motion sickness so the prospect of long voyages does not fill her with delight. She isn’t even that fond of walking on the beach, picking up shells, or playing in the surf (which I am.) If you’re a hunter or fisherman, this opens up another large assortment of visual choices, namely deer, elk, antelope, bass, walleyes, ducks, pheasants, wild turkeys etc. If you’re into such things, you would like my dentist’s office— wildlife everywhere but running strongly to ducks. Nephew Scott lives and breathes this stuff too, and his collection of mounted trophies has outrun his own home so that some are on the walls of my folks’ old house across the way from ours. That house is frequently home to Scott and his cronies who come to hunt and fish as often as they can. The other day I was somewhat taken aback at a bachelor pad I visited. There was not a thing hanging on the walls. A few family photos were displayed on a small stand by one wall, but, other than that, the walls were virgin territory. The resident either had no artistic sense or interest, or wasn’t in the place long enough to do much with it. At least there were no large posters of buxom lasses. Speaking of artistic sense, the way in which you display a collection of pictures will tell something about you as well. If my mom had three things she wanted to hang, they would always be in a line straight across. There would be none of this sloping to enhance the curve or flow of the room. Foursquare was her style. I’m the opposite. I want groupings to be somewhat arty. So, if you don’t want people to know much about you, watch what you hang on the wall. They might tell the story. Personally, I’m into pretty sights and like interesting and colorful things around me wherever I happen to be. Maybe I’m taking a page from my Heavenly Father’s notebook when he says, “Fix your thoughts on what is true and honorable and right. Think about things that are pure and lovely and admirable. Think about things that are excellent and worthy of praise.” Not a bad idea. Nice pictures on the wall can help.
Stockgrowers call on USDA to continue reform of Beef Check-off Program
The South Dakota Stockgrowers Association sent a letter to US Dept of Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack this week calling for additional reform to the Beef Check-off program. In the letter to Secretary Vilsack, Stockgrowers President Shane Kolb said, "We feel strongly that producer confidence must be restored to the Beef check-off program in order to continue the program as a benefit to producers." The Beef Check-off program is a federal mandate that requires one dollar of every beef animal sold in the United States to be paid for use to promote and research beef. The promotion and research work is contracted to private organizations, mostly the National Cattlemen's Beef Association and their affiliates. South Dakota Stockgrower members have become wary of the Beef Check-off program after recent audits found a lack of transparency and inadequate firewalls to separate producer check-off funds from the NCBA's private work as a lobby organization. Those lobby efforts have often been in conflict with the policies supported by other producer groups including Stockgrowers. Additionally, the legislation that governs the Beef Check-off program explicitly denies the use of check-off moneys for any lobbying by any contractor. "It is becoming increasingly difficult for our members to justify sending their hard earned dollars to a contracting organization without more substantial assurance that the money is being separated from any lobbying efforts." "At a time when the United States Beef herd is experiencing its lowest numbers ever, and consumer confidence is being repeatedly shaken through issues like the lean finely textured beef discussion, we need a strong beef promotion program working for producers more than ever." Kolb closed the letter by saying, "We feel that these changes would make significant strides toward restoring producer confidence and support for the Beef Check-off program. The Stockgrowers Board of Directors have called for reforms to include: Amending the Beef Promotion Act by 1) allowing the Cattlemen's Beef Board to become a completely independent and freestanding organization, and 2) lifting the 5 percent cap on CBB administrative costs so it can finances its own independent meetings without assistance from or coordination with any policy organization. An amendment to the Beef Promotion Act that would limit any one organization from being awarded contracts that equal more than fifty percent of the total check-off dollars in any calendar year and that no portion of the beef check-off dollars awarded to such an organization be used to pay for any portion of salaries or benefits of people employed by a policy or lobbying organization or of an individual consultant or lobbyist. A change in policy that accomplishes 1) a complete separation between any policy organization and Federation of State Beef Councils to provide for complete check-off accountability, 2) an increase in check-off fees to be tied to a twoyear periodic producer referendum on the check-off program, and 3) the beef check-off program should be housed with other mandatory check-off programs under USDA.
South Dakota State Bar sponsors “Ask-A-Lawyer”
Since 1986, the State Bar of South Dakota has been presenting the “Ask-A-Lawyer” program, providing free legal advice to hundreds of South Dakotans through a tollfree call-in service. The State Bar of South Dakota will again offer this free service on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, May 1, 2 and 3, from 6:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. MT. Pat Goetzinger, a Rapid City attorney and President of the SD Bar Association announced that experienced lawyers answering phones in Sioux Falls and Rapid City will answer questions on a wide range of legal issues. Each call is anonymous and we urge the public to take adventage of this fine service,” added Linda Lea Viken, coordinator for the West River portion of the project. Call toll-free at 1-877-229-2214 to ask a lawyer your question about the law.
May 1 is the date set for the student field trips to Rapid City. The third graders will go with the White River third grade at a later date. You know school is soon going to be dismissed for the summer, when the kids are going on field trips. We are glad to have JoAnn Letellier home after spending a few days in the Philip hospital. Since then, she has been out and about attending meetings as usual. She attended the Kadoka Nursing Home director meeting on Monday evening and enjoyed Birthday Club held on Wednesday afternoon at the Norma VanderMay home. Susan Taft worked at the Belvidere Post Office Friday and Saturday, while the Postmaster attended the SD United States Postmaster’s State Convention. Susan went on to Rapid City for supplies after working Saturday morning. Dave and Colleen Letellier and family came from Hulett, WY, for the weekend at the Gale Letellier ranch. Spring is a fun time to be in the country and everyone loves to help out, too. Everything is green and growing, tulips are blooming and the iris and poppies are showing their faces through the ground. The baby calves are frolicking in the pasture with their tails in the air and birds are singing their arrival, we even spotted a blue bird! The grandkids are busy hunting for and cuddling baby kittens. The weather has been just beautiful for it all. Friday evening, Morgan Taft took part in the Michael Glynn Memorial Coalition Youth Talent Show in White River. Her mother, Susan, also went in for the program. It sounded like a very nice event. Jason, JaLynn Burma, Beaver, Jade, Jakki and Jimmy arrived at Norris very early Saturday morning. They were fishing at Pierre until 1:30 a.m. Do you believe that? I am not so sure I do, either. Paul, LuAnne and Cassie Beckwith visited in the James Letellier and Andrea Beckwith homes on Saturday. Julie Letellier of Kilgore also was a guest at the James Letelliers over the weekend. Sunday afternoon visitors at the Maxine Allard home were Harry and Jeanne Merchen. Also Chuck Grass and son stopped to visit a bit with her after turkey hunting. Maxine has been busy raking her yard on these nice days. Maxine will turn 89 on May first. Happy birthday! Hope the day is as special as you are! Sunday after Mass, JoAnn Letellier attended a Parish Council meeting at the Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church.

Merry Willard got to Rapid City a couple of times lately. One day Pat Willard of Philip and Merry went in part to find a new humidifier for Pat since her apartment is too dry. They had lunch that day with John Willard who now runs the business his father started in manufacturing and selling CAW water. Another day, Chuck and Merry both went and met their daughter, Niki, from Hot Springs and did some things with her and shopped a bit. Back at home, Chuck has been putting the finishing touches on his chicken house since he’s ordered baby chicks and expects them soon. Merry has been “deconstructing” her basement since she found fault with a bunch of ants sneaking in a fault or crack between the poured foundation and the cement-block walls. That bug doorway has now been sealed. Some linoleum also was found to harbor crawly things so it has been removed. Reinstatement of the floor coverings is scheduled to start this week. Chuck has a couple of brandings already on his schedule and is looking forward to that season. Chuck and Bob Fortune have a new guy helping them this week. His name is T. C. and comes from Wyoming. Bob’s wife, Ruth, found him there in Wyoming since his mother goes to the same church as she does. T. C. has been working on a place in Nebraska, but Fortunes stole him away to come here. Brisa and Martin Badure have a couple of baby chicks that they are tending at the moment. They got them from their cousin Felicia in Kadoka. Other than that, the goats are about through kidding out, and tending the rest areas east of town is the main family activity for Greg and Dana. Dana says they have kind of a menagerie, considering they have various critters running around, but they enjoy them. Fayola Mansfield is once again walking on both legs and has been for three weeks now. You may recall that she badly broke her ankle three months ago and has been dealing with two casts and a black brace. Those are now gone and a cane is helping with mobility. Fayola still isn’t quite as mobile as she’d like to be but hopes she can get outside soon and start dealing with plants, weeds, and anything else that needs tending. Betty Kusick had lots of company on Sunday. Her daughter, Loretta Schreiber, and her husband, Lawrence, came and brought dinner. Son and grandson, Kenny and Kevin Kusick, came a bit later in the afternoon as did nephew Marvin Kusick and his two sons. Kenny, Kevin, Marvin and kids all went fishing in the afternoon. Loretta and Lawrence pulled some weeds and did other odd jobs. There was a lot of visiting and some picture taking. After everyone had left, Betty went down to the dam and did some fishing. She didn’t have much luck with the fish, but she did have a good visit with Rev. Denke who stopped there at the dam just to visit. Bunny Green was having a disagreement with her dog on Sunday evening. She’d gone out to feed a kitten, but the dog grabbed it and hauled it too far away for her to feed it. She was waiting for the kitten to wander back and meanwhile scolding the dog. Betty Kusick came over for coffee and a visit on Friday. Rodney Schnee dropped by for a half hour or so on Sunday. Bunny and Rodney worked together at the truck stop for a number of years. Wally Wells also came by with the mail one day. On Sunday, Bunny got to church and Sunday school which she didn’t last week due to the rain and mud. Delores Bonenberger is keeping her eye on the cattle since her guys all tend to wander off and work other places part of the time. They are mostly done calving and have already branded. They bought a few more cows that calved later, but Keith and Kade got those

Chuck and Suzanne Parkinson visited at the parental Larry Parkinson home in Kadoka en route to their home in Rapid City after spending last week in Vermillion. Chuck was invited to address two political science classes at the University of South Dakota informing the students of his experiences working as a clerk in both the US House and Senate Appropriations. While there they visited with their children, Alex and Sam, who are completing their first year of college at the university. Word was received in Kadoka last week of the death of Ethel Woodruff, 99, in Huron on April 20. She was a teacher in the Kadoka Schools and lived here for many years. (She was this writer’s first grade teacher.) Her funeral will be held in Huron at the Kuhler Funeral Home on Saturday, April 28 with burial at the National Cemetery near Sturgis on Monday.

COUNTY BOARD OF EQUALIZATIONBOARD OF JACKSON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS April 11, 2012
The Board of Jackson County Commissioners, acting as the Jackson County Board of Equalization, met at 2:00 p.m., Wednesday, April 11, 2012 in the Commissioner's Room of the Jackson County Courthouse. Chairman Jim Stilwell called the meeting to order with members Glen Bennett, Delores Bonenberger, Larry Denke and Ron Twiss present. All motions carried unanimously unless otherwise noted. Oaths of office were administered to all board members. The board had requested calculation of amount allowed to be levied if an addition one million dollars in growth had been shown in 2010 for taxes due in 2011, and also in 2011 for taxes due in 2012.

DENR recognizes West River/Lyman-Jones Public Water System for drinking water compliance
The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) has announced that the West River/Lyman-Jones public water system and the system’s certified operators have been awarded a Drinking Water Certificate of Achievement Award. The award is for outstanding water system operations and environmental compliance with state drinking water standards for the past year. The system’s certified operators are Jake Fitzgerald, Timothy Byrd, Michael Vetter, Ed Venard, Brandon Kinsley, Eddie Dartt, John Kramer, Steven Baker, and Nicholas Konst. “The best bargain in South Dakota is reliable, high quality, safe water from your public drinking water systems - 24 hours per day – seven days a week,” said DENR Secretary Steve Pirner. “The managers and operators receiving this DENR award guaranteed their water was safe by achieving 100% compliance with the Safe Drinking Water Act during 2011.” To qualify for the Drinking Water Certificate of Achievement Award, public water systems and their operators had to meet all of the following requirements for 2011: •compliance monitoring, •drinking water standards, •distribute a Drinking Water Report, lead/copper action levels, and comply with operator certification requirements.

Make germination testing for small grains a part of spring planting
Germination testing for small grain seed that has been saved from previous growing seasons should be a regular step in spring planting preparation, says SDSU Extension Plant Pathology Field Specialist Bob Fanning, during a recent iGrow Radio Network interview. This year is a crucial year when a germination test should be done because of all the potential problems that can impact poor germination," Fanning said. "When we look at all different disease problems and production problems we had last year including; scab, black point, glume blotch, ergot and other various virus diseases along with root and crown rot - there were an awful lot of things that can result in poor germination and poor seedling vigor." Fanning explains that a germination test shows growers what percentage of a seed unit is capable of producing normal seedlings under ordinarily favorable conditions. Germination rate is standard when growers purchase new bags of seed, however, if small grain producers save seed from the previous harvest to plant back the following season the only way they can know the germination rate is by having the seed tested. "The germination test will tell them how well that lot of seed will perform for them," he said. The SDSU Seed Testing Laboratory is a great resource for growers needing a germination test. Growers can pick up envelopes and information at their local Extension office or Regional Extension Center. Growers can expect results in about two weeks. Fanning says if a unit of seed has a germination rate of 85 percent or greater, growers can expect OK yields. The ideal germination rate is 90 to 95 percent. When a unit of seed has lower germination rates, Fanning says growers may want to either purchase new seed or adjust their planting rate - decisions he says cannot be made unless growers know the germination rate. "Knowing what that germination percentage is allows them to adjust their planting rate to get the stand they desire," he said. All purchased seed must be tested for germination. "Germination test is a requirement of selling certified seed," he said. 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.

Take steps to prevent tick-borne illness
South Dakotans heading outdoors need to protect themselves from ticks and the diseases they can carry, says a state health official. “Each year we have South Dakotans infected with tularemia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease – all tick-borne illnesses,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist for the Department of Health. “Last year we reported four cases of Lyme disease, eight of tularemia, three of ehrlichiosis, and one Rocky Mountain spotted fever in South Dakota.” Kightlinger noted that the department investigates every case of tick-borne disease reported. Those investigations found that all four cases of Lyme disease reported in 2011 had out-of state tick exposure.
South Dakota’s prairies actually help to deter Lyme disease somewhat because the deer tick that carries it needs heavily forested areas to thrive. A 2011 tick surveillance project in eastern South Dakota found none of the Ioxodes black-legged deer ticks that carry Lyme disease. The SDSU-led project surveyed forested areas around Sica Hollow, Oak Lake and Lewis and Clark Recreation Area multiple times over an 88-day period between June and October. “While we did not find the deer tick that carries Lyme disease, we did find that Dermacentor variabilis, the dog tick, was plentiful in all three locations,” said Dr. Michael Hildreth, a professor in the departments of Biology and Microbiology and also Veterinary and Biomedical Science at SDSU. “The dog tick transmits Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, tularemia and ehrlichiosis.” Symptoms of tick-borne illness include sudden onset of a moderate-to-high fever, stiff neck, deep muscle pain, arthritis, fatigue, severe headache, chills, a rash on the arms and legs or around the site of the bite, and swollen lymph nodes, particularly in the neck. If you develop any of these symptoms after a tick bite, see your doctor. With Rocky Mountain spotted fever the illness does not start immediately after the tick bite, but typically 5 to 10 days after the tick attachment. A tick bite is usually painless and appears as a small red bump with a bright red halo. To remove an attached tick, use tweezers or a tissue and pull slowly and steadily, being careful not crush it. Then apply antiseptic to the site to prevent infection. If you use bare hands to remove a tick, wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and soap, being especially careful not to touch your eyes before washing. To repel ticks when outdoors tuck your pants into your socks and spray clothes and any exposed skin with a tick repellent. Other precautions include: •Check frequently for ticks when outside, especially the scalp and folds of skin. Ticks need to be attached for several hours to spread infection so you can significantly cut your risk by checking for and removing ticks right away. •Check small children thoroughly and often for ticks when they've been outside or have had contact with pets or livestock that may have ticks. •Ask your veterinarian about appropriate insecticides and collars to protect pets from ticks and limit the number they carry into the home. For added protection, apply insecticides and tick repellents to your pet's bedding. •Check your animals frequently for ticks. To remove ticks from animals, apply constant traction with forceps or tweezers. If you must use your fingers, wear disposable gloves and wash hands thoroughly with soap and water afterward. Fact sheets on specific tick-borne diseases can be found on the Department of Health web site at http://doh.sd.gov/DiseaseFacts/.
