fast, easy or cheap. Reading all labels, contents
and facilities in which the food is prepared is of
consideration. She can substitute nearly any in-

When Gering Valley infant Dawson Stricker was 9-
months old he had a severe allergic reaction that sent
him into anaphylactic shock. “His throat swelled up and
he couldn’t breathe,” his mother Elizabeth Stricker re-
called. “I had to stick my finger down his throat to open
his airway. We live out in the country so we couldn’t
wait for an ambulance to get there.”
After the scare, Elizabeth and her husband Ryan
took young Dawson into town for some medical tests. “It
turned out he has very severe food allergies,” his mother
said. “He can’t eat eggs, dairy products, fish or peanuts.
In his case the allergy is severe enough to be life-threat-
Stricker and other members of her family have been
on a mission to raise awareness about food allergies
ever since that frightening day. Today Dawson is a
healthy 5-year-old boy with plenty of energy.
The family has been raising funds for the Food Al-
lergy Research and Education (FARE) program for the
past two years.
“FARE works to get the word out about food allergies
and to help families develop a support network,”
Stricker said. “This weekend we are going to the FARE
Walk for Food Allergy in Denver.”
Gering Valley’s Dawson Stricker and his mother Eliz-
abeth raised almost $2,300 to spread the word about
rare food allergies. Dawson is on a restricted diet but
said he likes carrot cake.
Last year their team, called the Dairy Errors, won first
place at the walk for raising almost $2,300 for the FARE
“On top of winning in the team category Dawson won
as the individual who raised the most money.”
“It was fun,” Dawson said.
“They held an award ceremony after the walk and we
With the school year starting on August
20 for staff and August 26 for students,
final decision are being made.
Supt. Jamie Hermann gave a reported
that summer building projects had been
completed to prepare for school to begin. At
Long Valley the front entry way was re-
paired and three classrooms received car-
pet; two classrooms at Interior had carpet
replaced and a storage shed will be added;
and the kitchen at Kadoka had some re-
pairs done and a keyless entry was in-
stalled. The keyless entry will provided the
extra needed security if an emergency
would arrise. During school hours the front
doors and doors into the Great Hall by the
offices will remain unlock.
Scores were given for district improve-
ment. All schools within the district have
improved at student performance and at-
tendance and all learning centers had been
removed from school improvement. Mid-
land received the highest performance rat-
ing in the state. The staff and students will
be recognized for their achievement at
their back-to-school bash.
Hermann also informed the board that
the school received extensive hail damage
to the vehicles, buildings and the new
scoreboard at the football field.
Elementary Principal Jeff Nemecek
stated that enrollment at Interior was ap-
proximately 60 students, Long Valley 44,
Midland 18 and 115 in Kadoka in grades
preschool through fifth.
Nemecek also stated that a new instruc-
tional resource area has been added in the
Great Hall. Books and teaching supplies
will be stored here. Teachers can access it
and use the material in their classrooms.
Secondary Principal George Seiler
stated that students have registered for
classes. This year students were also able
to register for classes at the Wanblee CAP
Office. Freshman and sixth grade students
will be having a computer use meeting in
the Great Hall.
Dates are being finalized for open
houses for middle and high school.
Seiler said that with the increase in vol-
leyball players and the coaches felt the ath-
letes would benefit from an additional
coach. Although three coaches were not
budgeted, the head and assistance coach
would agree to a $600 decrease in their
salary to be applied to the salary of a third
Heating fuel and vehicle fuel bids were
awarded. Propane at Long Valley, Kadoka
and Interior was given to Midwest Coop;
fuel oil at Interior to Midwest; bulk diesel
at Interior and Long Valley to Midwest;
diesel for Kadoka and Wanblee buses Dis-
count Fuel; and bulk gasoline for Long Val-
ley bus to Midwest.
Following a lengthy executive session for
personnel contracts were approved for
Carol Tucker as assistant cook and to Julie
Hermann as assistant volleyball coach. Mo-
tion failed to offer a contract to Curtis An-
derson as special education teacher. A
resignation was also expected from Shan-
non Jindra.
A contract was approved to Diana Coller
for the use of a classroom at the Midland
School for a preschool program for the
2013-2014 school term.
The next school board meeting will be
held on Wednesday, September 11 at 7 p.m.
at the Kadoka School.
were given a gift certificate for an Internet store that is
involved in food allergy awareness,” Stricker said.
The annual walk attracts about 800 people a year
and the overall goal for the 2013 walk is to raise $50,000
for FARE.
“We ask for cash donations but we also raise money
from recycling,” Stricker said. “Our focus on this was to
raise funds by collecting cans found out on county roads.
We brought in over 400 pounds of aluminum cans this
She said that she and Dawson, along with his little
brother Dalton, have walked 68 miles cleaning ditches
in the Gering Valley area. “We’ve walked by all the
farms out there and covered everything between Sand-
berg Road and Wright’s Gap Road. I was hoping we
could get a few more miles in so we could say we have
hit 70 but 68 is still quite a lot.”
“It’s good,” Dawson said. “We can make money.”
“For a good cause,” his mother added.
Dawson will be starting kindergarten this month at
Cedar Canyon School, the same school his father at-
tended. His mother admitted she was ‘somewhat nerv-
ous’ about that but that Dawson already has an
individualized health plan that was set up with school
officials earlier this summer.
“It is required by the state,” Stricker said of the
safety plan for Dawson. “The school is aware of his con-
dition. He already wears a special bracelet to day-care
that helps remind him and others what he can’t eat. So
no cake at any birthday parties unless mom makes it.”
Dawson seemed happy to show his colorful bracelet
that had a medical alert icon as well as little shapes of
fish, peanuts, milk, eggs and the other food items he
must avoid.
“It is nice there are so many alternatives to replace
eggs,” Stricker said. “We make a mean carrot-tofu
When asked what his favorite food was Dawson
said pizza. “We can make it with a homemade crust
and a non-dairy cheese alternative, otherwise he can
have all the normal toppings people like on pizza,”
said Stricker.
Dawson also said he liked to eat meat, especially
grilled chicken. His mother said after over four years
of developing a special diet the whole family has ad-
justed but with the risk of an allergic reaction always

shopping and cooking.
“You really have to be conscientious about what
you buy,” she said. “It is weird to read labels because
you learn just how often they will change the recipes.

ents from one month to the next. So we have to be
People can help Dawson and his team by making a
donation to FARE by contacting foodallergywalk.org
and hitting ‘Search for a Walker” and selecting Daw-
son Stricker.
“FARE has been very helpful to us,” Stricker said.
“They have many links on their website and lots of
good information. Some people might be new to all
this and there many good online supports and re-
sources. The walk in Denver is great family fun. We
get to network with other families. It is like one big
support group.

So while his food allergies do limit his choices Daw-
son is still able to enjoy a sweet treat now and then,
just as every child deserves.

Walk the Walk
I like to think that my walk is
purposeful. In other words, if you
see me going down the street, you
might think I am off to accomplish
something useful. I might actually
be headed somewhere to goof off,
of course, but by my walk you
might think I had honorable in-
tentions. At times I may saunter
and at other times hurry, but pur-
poseful is my aim.
How we walk does send some
signals. For example, the other
day I saw a lady trudge down the
alley with a bag of garbage. She
plunked the bag in the alley
garbage can and then plodded
back towards the house. I diag-
nosed that she’d had a long day
and was tired. She might also
have been a bit depressed.
Contrast that with son Chance
when he was little and getting up
from a nap. He’d wake up bouncy
and come zipping into the family
room. It was common for him to
twirl himself around a couple of
times in the process. This often
meant he was ready to go and
looking for action. A bit later, you
might think he was watching TV
in the living room only to glance
out the window and see him danc-
ing down the ridgepole of the barn.
Kids are like that—constantly
looking for adventure. They’re
more fun to watch, though, if they
belong to someone else, and you
aren’t responsible for keeping
them out of trouble.
Some people seem to always
have a spring in their step. There
was a guy in my high-school class
who did. It was some extra motion
of the foot that did it, but I was
never quite sure why or how it
happened. That was just the way
he moved and, I think, still is.
Age has some bearing on the
speed at which we travel, as you
know. Go to a nursing home and
you’re apt to see some shuffling
and a limp or two. Go to a school
and you’re apt to see the opposite-
-quite a bit more action. I’ve no-
ticed, however, that some older
people keep moving right along
and some young ones are slow so
age does not always determine our
rate of motion.
Then we come to length of
stride. My mom was taught that
“ladies take small steps” so she
did—always. This made it a bit te-
dious to walk anywhere with her
even though she might try to take
her small steps quickly. My sister,
on the other hand, was having
none of that nonsense. She wanted
to get where she was going and
not worry about being ladylike all
the time. The ladies of mom’s era
also had lots of other rules that
seemed fairly silly to the next gen-
eration. Mom had fashion rules
too such as never wear white be-
fore a certain date in the spring
and that hats and gloves were re-
quired at certain functions. These
are restrictive rules and no longer
of much use as far as I can tell.
Our way of walking must tell
quite a bit about us since we seem
to have lots of words that describe
motion. Who can forget John Tra-
volta in the movie, Saturday Night
Fever? After he’d worked hard and
done a good job in a dance compe-
tition, he said he had to go strut.
Next you see him strutting down
the street to a jazzy soundtrack
and feeling quite pleased with
himself. His smile and his stride
say it all.
Come to think of it, young cow-
boys tend to strut as well. It must
be something about the hat, boots,
spurs, and chaps along with the
cowboy tradition that brings it
out. It quite often amuses me, and
I enjoy watching it. I guess if you
can manage a horse, work cattle,
and gallop across the prairie with-
out falling off, you have something
to be fairly proud of.
If you’ve ever been in a march-
ing band or in any branch of the
military, you probably have some
experience with marching. That
too is purposeful locomotion al-
though somewhat tiring in the
long term. We Navy guys never
had to march very much after
basic training since ships aren’t
conducive to it. There might be
room enough to march on the
flight deck of a carrier, but smaller
ships have very few large clear
areas. That’s okay. I wasn’t a big
fan of marching anyway. Neither
am I fond of promenading which
speaks of refinement and such.
Swaggering is okay on occasion as
is wandering, rambling, meander-
ing, moseying, ambling and
By the way, if you’re feeling a
bit down sometime, it is good ther-
apy to get out and strut or swag-
ger across the prairie or down the
street. The exercise is therapeutic
as well. Give it a shot sometime
and see if it isn’t so.
Incidentally and symbolically
speaking, leading a purposeful life
isn’t a bad idea either. Accomplish-
ing useful stuff can give us a sense
of self worth. Watch out, though.
It might make you strut or swag-
ger, and then what will people
Searching for
Economic Recovery
It was three years ago that the
Obama administration dubbed the
summer of 2010 the “summer of
recovery.” Three years later, many
Americans are still searching for
recovery as our economy continues
to struggle under the weight of
stagnant economic growth, high
unemployment, and dwindling
household income. National un-
employment remains well above 7
percent, while the economy grew
by just 1.7 percent in the second
quarter. The median household in-
come has dropped by more than
$2,700 since June of 2009, yet
health care premiums for Ameri-
can families have skyrocketed by
nearly $2,500.
As premiums continue to rise
throughout the country, and busi-
nesses reduce the number of em-
ployee hours, it has become
increasingly clear that the presi-
dent’s signature health care law is
crushing jobs and economic
growth. According to a recent sur-
vey conducted by Gallup, 41 per-
cent of small businesses owners
have said they have held off on
hiring new employees and 38 per-
cent have pulled back on plans to
grow their business due to Oba-
maCare. According to Labor De-
partment data reported by CNN
Money, “The number of Americans
finding part-time jobs has surged
this year, with more than four
times as many getting only part-
time work as opposed to full-time
jobs.” In South Dakota, the South
Dakota Division of Insurance re-
cently published the exchange
rates for 2014, and it appears that
individual plans on the exchange
will be significantly higher.
Instead of expending time and
resources on the implementation
of ObamaCare, the Obama admin-
istration should be working with
Congressional Republicans to
enact pro-growth policies that
simulate the economy, including
comprehensive tax reform. Rev-
enue neutral comprehensive tax
reform is a critical way to increase
economic growth in our country.
Lower tax rates will encourage
work and investment, and will
make America a more attractive
place to do business. Well-de-
signed tax reform can even help
reduce the deficit by increasing
economic growth.
In addition to tax reform, the
president should approve the con-
struction of the Keystone XL
pipeline, which has been waiting
for approval for nearly five years.
According to the Obama State De-
partment, which is responsible for
approving the pipeline, the con-
struction of Keystone XL would
support 42,000 jobs nationwide
over a two year period. In South
Dakota, the pipeline would result
in significant economic benefits in-
cluding $470 million in new
spending for the South Dakota
economy, and additional state and
local revenues of more than $10
Finally, the president should
rein in onerous regulations on the
business community. From 2009
to 2012, President Obama final-
ized $518 billion in new regula-
tions, which is more than the
combined gross domestic product
of Portugal and Norway. Just
since January 1, 2013, the federal
government has published $66 bil-
lion in compliance costs, and 81.2
million annual paperwork burden
It is time for America to start
down the road to economic recov-
ery, and that begins by enacting
comprehensive tax reform, ap-
proving the Keystone XL pipeline,
reining in burdensome regula-
tions, and permanently delaying
ObamaCare for all Americans.
Working together to promote these
policies and to cut spending and
debt, we can grow the economy
and create jobs and opportunity
for American workers, families,
and small businesses.

Honoring our
Fighting Aces
Words will never be enough to
show the depth of my gratitude to-
wards our veterans and military
personnel who are actively serv-
ing. I can’t help but fill with pride
as I travel across South Dakota
and meet men and women who
have bravely stepped up to defend
this great country. In fact, over
72,000 veterans call South Dakota
home and it is because of these he-
roes that families across our state
can wake up in the greatest nation
in the world.
All of our nation’s veterans de-
serve to be treated with the honor
and respect they deserve, which is
why I have and will continue to
support legislation in Congress
that assists veterans and honors
their service. Recently, I cospon-
sored H.R. 685, the American
Fighter Aces Congressional Gold
Medal Act, which specifically hon-
ors our nation’s fighter pilots.
Fighter pilots are credited with
destroying five or more confirmed
enemy aircraft in aerial combat.
More than 60,000 fighter pilots
have served in the Armed Forces,
but less than 1,500 have been hon-
ored with the prestigious title of
Fighter Ace. Ten aces were born in
South Dakota, including Governor
Joseph “Joe” Foss, the second-
highest scoring ace in the Marine
Corps, and Cecil Harris, the sec-
ond-highest scoring ace in the
Navy. As South Dakotans, we
should be proud to say that the
best of the best have called our
state home. I fly into and out of
Joe Foss Field in Sioux Falls when
I’m traveling to Washington, D.C.
Every landing and take-off re-
minds me of our state’s veterans
and one of our greatest flying aces.
The American Fighter Aces
Congressional Gold Medal Act will
allow for the presentation of a sin-
gle gold medal in honor of these
brave pilots and their incredible
achievements. This medal would
then be given to the Smithsonian
Institution for display and re-
search. Bronze duplicates will be
sold by the U.S. Mint to cover the
cost of the initial gold medal.
This group of elite fighters is
also one of the most highly deco-
rated military groups in American
history. Twenty-two achieved the
rank of Admiral in the Navy, 79
achieved the rank of General in
the Army, Marines and Air Force
and 19 fighter aces have been
awarded the Medal of Honor, in-
cluding Joe Foss.
I’m proud to support this bill,
and to support our men and
women in uniform. If you know of
a veteran who is having difficulty
receiving a military medal or
needs assistance with benefits
claims, please contact one of my
offices so we can help. Those need-
ing assistance should visit my
website at http://noem.house.gov
for more information or call one of
my offices.

South Dakota State
Fair – A Trend Of
It’s that time of year again
when the leaves are about to turn,
the days get shorter and our kids
go back to school. But before the
summer ends, families are invited
to attend the South Dakota State
Fair from Aug. 29 to Sept. 2 in
For the last six years, the State
Fair has charted a consistent
trend of success, with year-over-
year increases in virtually all
areas. Since 2006, attendance has
increased an incredible 44 per-
cent, from 133,000 to more than
192,000, and with good weather,
we may set another all-time
record in 2013.
Once again, all of the 1,300-plus
campsites will be full, vendor
spaces are sold-out and exhibit
numbers continue to be strong.
As always, there will be plenty
of things to see and do.
Come enjoy music and other en-
tertainment on six different free
stages and the grandstand. Bring
your kids to the pig races or the
FFA animal nursery. Stroll over
for some cotton candy or go on a
carnival ride. Test your skill in the
arm wrestling competition, the hot
dog eating contest or the beef and
chili cook-offs.
Experience a taste of the Old
West at the bull riding and cowboy
mounted shooting events. Grab a
cold one in the beer garden and
wine pavilion, or reminisce with
an old friend on a trolley ride
around the grounds.
Of course, don’t forget to sup-
port tomorrow’s leaders – our 4-H
and FFA members – by viewing
their static projects and livestock
You can check out the full
schedule of events online at
As part of the Fair’s continuing
improvement efforts, the State
Fair Foundation and 4-H are part-
nering on a $4 million capital cam-
paign to construct a new, multi-
use 4-H Exhibition Hall to replace
the old Clover Hall.
This project will provide space
to showcase the hard work of our
young people and engage them in
hands-on learning activities. It
will also help students prepare for
careers in engineering, manufac-
turing, mechanics and agriculture
– jobs that are available now and
that will be in ever-greater de-
mand in the coming years. The
project is supported entirely by
private donations; to contribute or
find out more, please call 605-353-
I am proud of Manager Jerome
Hertel and the Department of
Agriculture who have done a great
job of building the Fair into one of
South Dakota’s premier events.
Come experience this continuing
trend of success by bringing your
family to the starry nights and
midway lights of the South
Dakota State Fair. I hope to see
you there!

Save the Llamas
Those in attendance on Mon-
day, August 12 to review and com-
ment on the City of Kadoka
Zoning Ordinances were given a
voluminous document consisting
of some 48 pages with maps show-
ing the efforts of the well meaning
committee who have been working
with the Central South Dakota
Enhancement District (EPA) and
their representative. None could
examine the document before the
meeting but even cursory exami-
nation of the definitions would in-
cline one to ask questions. Of
course, this is said to be “our plan”
but I doubt that any in Kadoka or
on the committee could originate
such a sophisticated, all encom-
passing document.
We were assured that the plan
would not cause any pain at the
outset as all existing situations
would be “grandfathered”. One of
the more humorous moments was
when the planner was questioned
about three llamas in city limits.
The planner said that if one were
no longer there and not replaced
within one year that there could
never be an additional llama.
Facetiously, suppose that one of
the three dies and is not replaced
timely. What would happen if
there was a blessed event after a
year? Would the owner have to
apply for a variance - or send
mama llama to planned parent-
Humor aside, there are many
serious questions about what
would happen if you chose to sell
your home which was not in “com-
pliance” but “grandfathered” at
the time the ordinance was
passed? Would one have to bring
the house up to compliance before
it could be sold? Many houses in
this town would not comply with
the requirements for side or back
yards and never have. The plan
specifies how high fences should
be around homes and salvage
yards which now are not in line
with the plan. There are many
more regulatory pitfalls property
owners could fall into. Some could
require the expensive services of
an engineer or architect before
costly modifications.
Penalties provided for non com-
pliance are set out in Section
1.03.02 which provides, “The
penalty for violation of this Zoning
Ordinance shall be one hundred
($100) or imprisonment for not
more than thirty (30) days, or
both, and in addition the violator
shall pay all costs and expenses
involved in the case. Each and
every day that such violation con-
tinues after notification may con-
stitute a separate offense”.
Please examine the proposed
plan at the city offices. Perhaps
you too will want to ask some

Letter to the Editor
Grandparents Who
Raise TheirGrandkids?
In 1978, Congress passed legis-
lation proclaiming the first Sun-
day after Labor Day as National
Grandparents Day. Presidents
since Jimmy Carter have issued
proclamations urging citizens to,
in the words of President Barack
Obama, "honor those who have
helped shape the character of our
nation, and thank these role mod-
els for their immeasurable acts of
love, care and understanding."
At a stage in life when many
people are already comfortably re-
tired, some 2.7 million grandpar-
ents have taken on the
responsibility of providing basic
needs for their grandchildren, ac-
cording to data compiled by Gen-
erations United. An alarming 21
percent of these vital caregivers
live below the poverty line, even
though 60 percent are still in the
All told, an estimated 7.8 mil-
lion children under 18 live in
households headed by grandpar-
ents or other relatives, including
those whose parents are absent
due to death, substance abuse,
military deployment or other rea-
Ironically, even though many of
these "grandfamilies" barely
scrape by, they save taxpayers
more than $6.5 billion each year
by keeping children out of the fos-
ter care system. So it only seems
fair that many federal, state and
local aid programs are available to
help these guardian angels pro-
vide financial and emotional
safety nets for their grandchil-
Among the many difficulties
these families sometimes face:
If you become your grandchild's
foster parent, you're responsible
for day-to-day decisions and care,
although the state retains legal
custody and pays for the child's
Unless you establish some form
of legal relationship (custody,
guardianship or adoption), the
parent may be able to take your
grandchild from your home at any
In some states, it's difficult to
enroll the child in school or get
medical care without some form of
legal relationship.
Most senior-only housing com-
plexes don't allow child residents
– which is legal – so some grand-
families are forced to move.
However, grandfamilies may be
eligible for several federal tax
A Child Tax Credit of up to
$1,000 for each qualified grand-
child, provided they lived with you
for more than half the filing year
and are under 17 at year's end.
If you qualify for the Earned In-
come Tax Credit, you may be eligi-
ble for an additional amount for
grandchildren you support.
A Child and Dependent Care
Credit for childcare expenses in-
curred so you can work or seek
If you adopt your grandchil-
dren, you may be eligible for a
nonrefundable Federal Adoption
Credit of up to $12,970 per child.
In addition, depending on your in-
come and the health/disability sta-
tus of your grandchildren, you
may also be eligible for benefits
from Medicaid, your state's Chil-
dren's Health Insurance Program,
the Supplemental Nutrition Assis-
tance Program and numerous
other federal, state and local aid
Helpful resources for grandfam-
ilies include:
Grandparents Raising Grand-
children, a government-sponsored
site at. www.usa.gov, that provides
links to various subject-matter ex-
AARP's comprehensive Grand-
Families Guide (at www.aarp.org).
Benefits QuickLINK, an AARP
tool to find out whether you or
your grandchildren qualify for 15
different public benefits.
Generations United, whose
"Grandfamilies" website high-
lights challenges often faced by
these households
Do something to honor your
own grandparents this Grandpar-
ents Day. And if you know others
who are raising their grandkids,
make sure they know about the
many available resources.

“Every story has three sides-
yours, mine and the facts.
We are beginning to believe we
are in the rain forest. Yes, we re-
ceived more rain this last week.
Last Tuesday, we received over
three inches of rain and the
ditches in front of the Sacred
Heart Catholic church were filled
to the brim this time. We had fog
or rain every day last week, too.
The countryside looks as green
as Ireland and it is August. It re-
ally should too, because we have
received over 11 inches of rain in
the last 15 days! Yes, it is a record.
The dumb thing is, the weather-
man never did forecast more than
50% chance of rain any of those
Wednesday, Susan Taft and
Morgan and cousin Gwyneth Sim-
mon met her mother Michelle at
Wall. Gwyneth had spent some
time visiting in the Taft home.
Our hearts go out to the Big
Eagle and Larvie families at the
loss of Theodore Big Eagle, Jr., 68,
of Clear Lake, SD. Burial services
were held at the Norris Cemetery
on Thursday morning at 10 a.m.
May the Lord comfort you at this
sad time of loss.
Ray and Gail Berry went to
Jamestown, ND, and helped their
little grandson, Canyon, celebrate
his third birthday. Canyon is the
son of Brent and Lynette Berry
and he has a big sister, Ashlyn.
The Berrys returned home on Sat-
Dan, Susan and Morgan went
to Rapid City for parts on Friday
and visited Samantha. Samantha
decided to come home with them.
Saturday, the Taft girls rode horse
back in the Frontier Days in White
River. They were among the 50
horseback riders carrying state
flags. Samantha went back to
Rapid City on Sunday evening.
Saturday and Sunday, Evan
and Dorothy Bligh enjoyed watch-
ing their mare, Oh Whatta Reba,
run in the Cornhusker Barrel Rac-
ing Futurity at Broken Bow, NE.
Jakki Burma spent the week at
her grandpa and grandma’s, the
Jim Letelliers. JaLynn and Jimmy
came to get her on Thursday. They
spent Friday gathering garden
produce and mowing before going
back. Jakki called last night to tell
me the guy verifying addresses for
Golden West last week was her
first cousin once removed. She
went to a family reunion on the
Grandma Burma’s side on Sunday
and they recognized each other.
Small world isn’t it?
Congratulations to the fishing
champions Howard Heinert and
Keith McCoy of Valentine, NE.
Howard came home with a second
place trophy from the fishing
derby at Merritt Dam over the
weekend. Saturday, they caught a
22 pound, 14 ounce catfish and the
second day they caught a 25
pounder and only lost by a quarter
In the meantime, Nette Heinert
and the boys were attending the
Bob Totton and Jim Root’s fishing
equipment sale in Murdo on Sat-
urday. James and Marjorie Anne
Letellier also enjoyed attending
the sale.
Monday, Edna and Rebekkah
Kary visited Maxine Allard. Ty
Merchen and Dorothy Bligh also
stopped by that day to visit.
Maxine Allard accompanied
Dorothy Bligh to Valentine on
Wednesday. She visited with her
friend Jim Cruger at Cherry Hills
Assisted Living.
Don’t forget to watch for kids
out and about, school starts on
Tuesday in the White River Dis-
trict. The teachers have returned
from the summer vacation and
have been attending in-service so
they will be ready.
Stanley Dean Peterson died on
August 12 in Rapid City where he
had been living near his son for
several months. His funeral was
held in Kadoka on August 17 with
burial in the Kadoka Cemetery.
Military rites were conducted by
the American Legion Post of Mar-
tin, where he was a lifetime mem-
ber. Sympathy is extended to his
children, Robin Lund and Casey
Peterson and their families.
Alexandra Parkinson of Rapid
City stopped briefly on Wednesday
of last week at the home of her
grandparents, Larry and Alvina
Parkinson. She was on her way to
Vermillion where she will be a jun-
ior at the University of South
Mathew and Teresa Plagge-
meyer drove to Pollock on Thurs-
day where they attended the
wedding of John Hann, a former
classmate of Mathew’s, on Friday.
They returned to their home Sat-
Glen Jensen of Rapid City was
in Kadoka on Saturday to attend
the funeral of Stanley Peterson.
His wife, Kay, and Stanley were
teachers at the same time in the
Kadoka School System. Kay is a
resident of the Fountain Springs
Nursing Home in Rapid City.
Verda Anderson and son, Cur-
tis, attended the funeral of Connie
Timmerman in Gann Valley on
Saturday. Connie lost her battle
with cancer and was one of the An-
derson’s neighbors at their prop-
erty near Gann Valley. They
returned home the same day.
Deb and Marv Moor went to
Rapid City on Saturday to pick up
her father, Hank Kosters, who had
been staying at the home of one of
his other daughters since his knee
operation on August 5. They drove
him to his home in Pierre where
Deb’s aunt Betty Schlueter of
Mitchell will be with her father
while he recuperates. This is his
second knee operation and it is
going much better than his first
Work was begun on Monday to
replace the balcony at the Pearl
Hotel. This work is able to be done
with a matching $10,000 grant
from the Deadwood Grant Com-
mittee. With good weather the

Starting off our week was Lois
Pettyjohn and Lola Joyce Riggins
who came to sing hymns with us.
All the residents love music and a
lot of them can really make good
harmony! It’s a great way to begin
our week.
Joy Parker, our resident of the
month for August, had her family
meal. She invited Ron and Renate
Carson, Oliver and Gayle Carson,
Wilma and Mel Carleton, Val and
Beverly, and Ruth and Gary Mc-
Cubbin. She decided on shrimp,
corn on the cob, potato salad, rolls
and cherry chocolate cake. She
was given a beautiful bouquet of
flowers along with several other
little tokens throughout the
Dwight Louder had quite a few
visitors this week. The Anderson’s
stopped in and Dorothy and Brad
drove down from Murdo.
Syd and Pam stopped by to chat
with Micki Word. Micki is very for-
tunate to have so many in the
community come by to see her. It’s
awesome! Micki attended the fu-
neral services for Stanley Peterson
with Jackie Stillwell on Saturday.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to
the family and friends.
I, also would like to extend my
sincere sympathy to the Melford
Koester family in the loss of
Melford Koester. Mel was a resi-
dent here at nursing home and we
were so blessed to have gotten the
chance to know him and assist
him with his daily needs. I am so
happy he got to go on that last
fishing and picnic trip to Pierre on
his 87th birthday, and that he had
a chance to take in the family bar-
becue and carnival this past Sun-
day. Rest in peace Mel.
All our regulars dropped in to
visit with several residents. Those
coming by were: Lova Bushnell,
Lola Joyce Riggins, Shirley
Josserand, and many others.
Thank you all for coming by!
Alice Wilmarth had her hair
done on Wednesday, and then on
Saturday Paulette came by for a
visit. Rick continues to come by al-
most every day to check on mom.
Kenny and Cindy drop in when
they can. Alice is a very lucky and
special lady.
Grandma Mary Bull Bear got a
visit form Royce Garret, Esper-
anza Marie, Amanda Reddy and
many other little granddaughters
throughout the week. Mary’s leg
I meant to mention that last
week the old Dolloff building was
a big pile of lumber under the tree
in the yard. There was a lot of
lumber from the house. They
hauled all of it away and cleaned
up the yard.
The quilters this were Shirley
Josserand, Marie Addison, and
Lova Bushnell. Bonnie Riggins
had the pleasure of visiting with
the ladies as they were quilting.
May we add Margie Peters to our
prayer list along with Val Cork
and Bonnie.
I walked across an exciting park
this evening with a mushroom and
a pop can. There wasn’t even one
youngster playing there. Such a
beautiful Thursday evening, too. I
enjoyed several hands of 7-Up
with Mary Ellen Herbaugh,
Shorty Ireland, and Derald Kul-
havy, before returning to my
apartment. Ruth Klundt came
down to visit.
The pool is closing on the 16th
for the summer as school is getting
ready to start.
I accompanied Chris and Anita
Riggins, Dylan, Stanley, and
Melissa to the SDSU rodeo on
Sunday afternoon. Dylan tried to
convince me that one of the bulls
couldn’t buck that hard. Green
grass gives them a lot of pep. We
stopped in Belvidere to visit with
some of the locals, Tom and Jamie.
Stanley stayed longer to visit with
his friend, Jory.
I did join many friends and rel-
atives to attend the memorial
services for Stanley Peterson on
Saturday morning. He was very
deserving of the beautiful memo-
rial service that was held for him.
He and his wife, Frances, taught
and coached for many years and
our young ones were blessed to
have them as part of their life.
I made a trip to Wall to enjoy
the wedding reception of our
neighbor’s daughter, Melissa.
Thought of the week: Wisdom is
the best guide and faith is the best
Greg and Dana Badure and
kids, Brisa and Martin, took a
three-day vacation last week.
They first went to Devil’s Tower
and stayed at the KOA Kamp-
ground there which was nice
enough. Dana and the kids hiked
around the area while Greg stayed
closer to the cabin and read his
newspaper and such. The next
night was spent at Keyhole Lake
in Wyoming some 20 miles south
of Devil’s Tower. This is a huge
lake with decent cabins. There
was also a cliff from which you
could dive into a deep part of the
lake, but that pleasure was for-
gone this time around although
Dana said she wouldn’t mind giv-
ing it a try sometime. The good
beach was given some use instead.
Dana said it was nice to get away
for a little while and that they had
quite a bit of fun despite getting
rained and hailed on here and
there. Niece Felicia stayed at
home, tended the goats, and kept
things running although she
wasn’t that fond of milking goats.
Wade Fox and Patty and kids
have been getting in some fishing.
They tried the Belvidere Dam be-
fore church on Sunday where they
visited with Troy Hindman who
also was there. They tried to snag
a line with a bobber and attached
fish that they saw floating around,
but couldn’t quite manage it. They
figure someone’s line broke with a
fish on it at some recent time.
Wade said he had fairly good luck
catching perch recently in com-
pany with Cole Hindman. Wade
and Patty will be spending the
week preparing for their wedding
at 6:00 p.m. next Saturday in the
Belvidere Park.
Kate Rasmussen (daughter of
Dan and Dawn) has decided to do
her senior year of high school at
Sheridan, Montana. She will be
staying with a high-school friend
of her mom’s. She will also be
learning how to milk Icelandic
dairy sheep since the friend has
some seventy of those. Kate’s pur-
pose in this is to establish resi-
dency in Montana so she can get
in-state tuition for college at Boze-
man, Montana. They have a good
zoology program which has caught
Kate’s eye since that subject is of
great interest to her. The school in
Sheridan is about the same size as
Chris and Terry Baldwin and
girls have made a couple of trips to
Rapid City lately—mostly to keep
doctors appointments. In one of
these, Chloe had a fairly thorough
heart exam which seemed to show
everything was fine in that area.
School physicals were also done in
preparation for the start of school
next week. Other than that, Chris
has been working with his bees
which involves some day work and
some night. Moving bees is usually
done at night and tending can be
during the day. This week, some of
the bees were moved north of Mid-
land near a large sunflower field.
Alfalfa is also blooming again, but
Chris said alfalfa has good and
bad aspects in the honey business.
It makes good enough honey, but
right now the nectar is so liquid
that it takes the bees quite a while
to “boil” it down into honey. This is
a bit similar to maple syrup from
which excess water also needs to
be removed by boiling. The bees do
the work here, though, and not the
Chuck and Merry Willard had
their daughter, Niki Kleinsasser,
and her two kids, Caleb and
Joshua, home this weekend from
Hot Springs. They thought they
had better get in one more nice
weekend before school starts.
Caleb, who is five, was pleased to
be allowed to ride a horse all by
himself. Before there had always
been someone leading him with a
halter rope so now he feels more
grown up. Fishing was given a go
but Merry said they got skunked
on that and caught nothing. The
kids enjoyed jumping on the tram-
poline especially when a sprinkler
was set up under it. Cucumbers
were picked on Sunday afternoon,
but Merry said she was going to
rustle the vines with a stick before
picking since she’s still a little gun
shy about rattlers thanks to one
having bitten her a little while
Ruth Ann Niehoff had all her
daughters here for a bit. Abby and
Donya drove in from Carson City,
Nevada and spent about ten days
at the ranch. They each have a
young son, and their names are
Parker and Gavin. Beka came
from South Bend, Indiana with
her fiancé, Debin, for a weekend
while her sisters were here. Only
one son, Andrew, was around dur-
ing that time but he’s been with
Ruth Ann all summer. The group
played tourist part of the time
with visits to the Badlands, Mt.
Rushmore, Storybook Island, and
the like. They also had a birthday
Frank Carlson and his cowboy
friends won second at the ranch
rodeo at White River this week-
end. They got firsts at both Murdo
and Lower Brule earlier this sum-

Kadoka high school student Fos-
ter Berry got a chance to get out of
the classroom and explore oppor-
tunities that can come from a de-
gree in metallurgy and materials
science this summer.
Berry attended the ASM: Mate-
rials, Metallurgy, and Forensics
summer camp with fifteen other
campers from around the country
at the South Dakota School of
Mines and Technology July 24-29
in Rapid City, SD.
ASM: Materials, Metallurgy,
and Forensics is 5-day academic
summer camp that gets students
thinking about science and engi-
neering through activities like
blacksmithing, welding, materials
testing, and field trips. Dr.
Michael West, department head
and professor of engineering for
the School of Mines Materials and
Metallurgical Engineering De-
partment, designed, coordinated,
and teaches the camp.
"This hands-on camp takes stu-
dents out of the classroom and re-
ally shows them what it's like to be
a metallurgical engineer," West
said. "The purpose is to have fun,
but also to learn."
Campers aren't just learning
about science. They're preparing
for future degrees and careers.
Goldcorp provided a tour of their
Wharf gold mine in Lead.
The campers also toured the
RPM and Associates manufactur-
ing facility in Rapid City and
spoke with Mines graduates.
The camp was also made possi-
ble by generous contributions from
ASM International and Structural
Integrity, the John T. Vucurevich
Foundation, and the Clarkson
Family Foundation, who provided
scholarships for eligible students.

and other School of Mines camps
in 2014, interested students, par-
ents, and counselors may call (605)

Co-op new director
Partners in Policymaking
will change your life
Haakon County will see a new director seated at the conclusion of this
year’s annual West Central Electric meeting in Kadoka, October 2. Kevin
Neuhauser, Midland, was elected at the Haakon County zone meeting
in Philip, Tuesday, August 13. The term is for three years. Neuhauser will
replace Charles “Chuck” Kroetch, a member of the cooperative’s board
since 1995. Also at this year’s annual meeting, a proposed by-law will
be voted on, which concerns the number of members required to consti-
tute a quorum at the annual meeting. More details on the proposed by-
law will be published in the September Cooperative Connections. Shown

Midwest finalizes spill cleanup
Clean up is complete for the vandalism-caused chemical spill of 500 gallons of Durango herbicide on March 25
at Midwest Cooperative in Philip. The dirt, rock and concrete chunks were immediately excavated from below the
storm sewer near the Highway 73 bridge. None of the contaminant reached the Bad River. The previous rip-rap
has now been replaced with large pink boulders, called classy rip-rap. “All done. That was the last thing we had
to do,” said Philip site manager Jay Baxter. “All interested government departments have signed off and are very
pleased with the way Cenex Harvest States has handled this incident.” Baxter added that the company wanted
to leave the area better than it was before, thus the 2,000 to 2,500 pound pink boulders. “They’re pretty cool
rocks,” said Baxter. One was donated to the Senechal Park for decoration. “We still don’t know what happened,
but we appreciate the interest that we received over this, because it brought better understanding for us and the
public how to try to keep something like this from happening again,” said Baxter. Diffierent storage procedures
for the shuttle containers are being looked into, and other precautions are being taken that no accidental release
will happen again.

Read Romans 6:17-23
It is normal for children, at some point, to become aware of growing
stronger. “Let’s see your muscles,” a parent will say. The child bends an arm,
makes a fist, and proudly displays the evidence. Parents often encourage
their children to increase strength and overcome any weakness. Some young-
sters cooperate, but others act indifferent or feel defeated even before they
We all have weak areas in our lives. How do we respond to them? Do we
make a plan to overcome them? Do we pretend they are unimportant or sur-
render to them without much effort? None of these responses is what God
desires for us. He wants our weaknesses to remind us how totally dependent
we are upon His strength and how great our need is for Him. His plan is for
our frailties to be a powerful motivator to deepen our relationship with Him.
Handled improperly, those areas in which we lack ability can become stum-
bling blocks that hurt us and those around us. A proper response—namely,
turning to God—means He will take charge of our weaknesses and no longer
allow them to dominate our lives.
Samson was a man whom God set apart and equipped for divine purposes.
But he had an uncontrollable weakness, which he allowed to run unchecked
until it destroyed his work for the Lord (Judg. 13-16). We, as Christ-followers,
have also been set apart for God’s work and equipped by Him. We should
heed the warning of Samson’s life and turn quickly to God every time our
weakness surfaces. Delay could mean disaster.

Financial Tip of The Week:
Pay Attention
Enjoying a casual evening at
home, I reclined in my favorite
easy chair reading, while the Gra-
cious Mistress of the Parsonage
was chatting on the telephone. I
rarely pay attention to telephone
conversations. After all, I only get
one side of the conversation, which
may be misleading at the very
best. I've been caught in that trap
before with some pretty dire con-
sequences. I'm not going to get
caught again.
Then an odd phrase caught my
attention: "plastic surgery." My
ears perked up and I heard my
wife say, "I certainly agree with
that article and I'm going to do
some plastic surgery myself."
Well, you can imagine what
thoughts were racing through my
head. When she hung up the tele-
phone, I queried her about it.
In my book, plastic surgery is a
big step.
"You do support me in this plas-
tic surgery plan, don't you?"
There are times to disagree
with your spouse, but as a hus-
band for over 40 years, I have
never discovered that time. Forc-
ing a smile, I nodded in the affir-
mative and told her she had my
full support in whatever she de-
I had to admit that the "time"
had finally come to our humble
abode. Who am I to fight it? I go by
this motto, "He who smiles and
agrees with his spouse lives to
smile another day."
I plan to smile until the day I
I never really thought about
plastic surgery, but perhaps my
wife was right. Perhaps she could
use a little face-lift. For me to get
a facelift, the surgeons would need
a huge construction crane. Then
comes the awkward part, what do
they do with my face after it was
Women, more than men, are a
little sensitive about their appear-
ance. For a man, "appearance"
means he showed up. A woman
has an altogether different ap-
proach to the term "appearance."
Some women look in the mirror
and see where some improve-
ments could be made. For exam-
ple, they see bags under their eyes
that could not get through the air-
port carry-on luggage size require-
Then there is the problem with
their nose, which could stand a lit-
tle tweaking. For all practical pur-
poses, one of those double chins
has to go. Moreover, what woman
couldn't use a tummy tuck and
other snippings of the flesh?
Believe me; I never would have
brought it up, but if that makes
my wife happy, then whatever it
costs, we can put it on a credit
card. The only problem with put-
ting something like this on a credit
card is that by the time you pay it
off you need another procedure.
She is worth it in my checkbook.
I have no compunction whatsoever
of writing out that check.
Each day I checked the appoint-
ment calendar hanging on our re-
frigerator to find out when she
would be going in for the surgery.
Daily I looked, but could never
find any appointment.
I supposed she was sensitive
about the whole thing and did not
want it staring at her day after
day on the appointment calendar.
Whatever the reason, she had my
silent support, for all that was
worth. I am sure she would do the
same for me. That is what mar-
riage is all about. Supporting one
another in the developments of
life, whatever that development
might be.
I decided to tuck this little bit in
the back of my mind and, however
it developed would be all right
with me.
One day this week, I went to the
Slurp N' Burp Café for a quiet
lunch. The issue was far from my
mind as I enjoyed a delicious
repast. As I finished my last cup of
coffee, the waitress brought my
bill and I pulled my wallet out to
pay for it.
In searching my wallet for a
credit card I discovered, much to
my double chagrin, that there
were no credit cards to be found.
Somehow, I'd lost my credit cards.
Perhaps, in the morning when I
was getting dressed, they dropped
out of my wallet as I was placing
it in my trousers.
The problem with that theory
was that all the other cards in my
wallet were intact.
Fortunately, I had my cell
phone and called my wife.
"Honey, I've lost all my credit
cards. I'm here at the restaurant
and I can't find any credit cards in
my wallet. Do you have any idea
what I did with my credit cards?"
"I cut them all up."
"You did what?"
"You said you supported my
plastic surgery plan, didn't you?"
"But, I thought..."
"You, thought what?"
Oh boy.
Dear reader: please disregard
the first part of this column. If you
happen to read my obituary in
next week's newspaper, you will
know that my lovely, vivacious,
eternally youthful wife did not dis-
regard the first part and I'm cur-
rently Resting In Pieces.
I must confess that my hearing
is good; it is my understanding
that falls so far short. The only ex-
ercise I am really good at is "jump-
This is common among many
people who call themselves Chris-
tians. Their hearing is good but
their "doing," is not up to par.
The apostle James understood
this truth quite well. He writes,
"But be ye doers of the word, and
not hearers only, deceiving your
own selves" James 1:22 (KJV).
It is not so much what you hear
that pays dividends in life, but
what you do.

Stanley Dean Peterson, age 87
of Kadoka, S.D., died Monday, Au-
gust 12, 2013, at his home next to
his son's residence south of Rapid
City. He also had his main resi-
dence in Kadoka.
Stanley Dean Peterson was
born December 9, 1925, in
Chadron, Neb., the son of Delmar
L. “Butch” and Lois Blanche (Mc-
Donald) Peterson. He was raised
on the Peterson Ranch in the
Sand Hills on LaCreek, south of
Martin. He grew up during the
Depression and never forgot the
sacrifices and hard times. He grew
up knowing the pioneers, settlers
and Native Americans and
learned from their stories of sur-
vival and how they cleared the
way for the future generations.
Stanley attended Plainview
School and Bennett County High
School. Before finishing high
school, he enlisted in the United
States Marine Corps and entered
active duty on January 20, 1944,
during WWII.
After boot camp, he was placed
in the V-12 Officer’s Program, at-
tending Arkansas A&M, and Col-
orado College, followed by Green’s
Farm Scouts and Sniper School at
Camp Pendleton. He served as a
troop transport quartermaster
and shipped out to the South Pa-
cific on the USS American Legion.
After returning, he briefly served
on Marine patrol at Terminal Is-
land near Long Beach, Calif.
On August 2, 1946, he was hon-
orably discharged with the rank of
lance corporal and returned home
to his beloved Sand Hills, vowing
to never leave them. He finished
his education at Chadron State
College and the University of
Northern Colorado as a teacher
and coach. At Chadron, the post-
war veterans came together, as
they had in war, and won the foot-
ball conference championship two
years in a row, 1947 and 1948.
That brotherhood remains today
as the Purple Passion Group, who
are honored at every homecoming
football game at Chadron State
His first teaching and coaching
assignment was at Pine Ridge
High School, where he coached
football and started the first girls’
high school basketball team in
western South Dakota. He then
left for Redding, Calif., where he
continued his teaching and coach-
ing career.
He returned to South Dakota in
1951 due to his mother’s illness.
He met the love of his life, Frances
Yvonne Craven, who was singing
at a Christmas program in Wan-
blee. They were married Septem-
ber 8, 1952, in Rapid City, and
returned to Redding where they
made their home, until the draw
of western South Dakota brought
them back in 1968. They made
their home in Kadoka. In 1988, at
age 64, he finished his teaching
and coaching career.
He spent his retirement years
serving on the Kadoka City Coun-
cil and Kadoka School Board. He
returned to coaching at Rapid City
Christian High School during
1998-1999. At that time, he was
the oldest active football coach in
South Dakota, and his assistant
coach was his son, Casey Peter-
He was proud of his heritage,
which traced back to the
Mayflower and the Sons of the
American Revolution. He was a
lifelong member of the American
Legion Post #240 of Martin.
He fondly remembered all the
students he was privileged to
teach and coach, each of whom he
remembered with incredible de-
tail. As a teacher and coach, he
would not tolerate bullying, and
demanded loyalty and respect for
He loved to teach anyone who
had an open mind, especially his
children and six grandchildren.
He was a philosopher, storyteller
and poet who studied all aspects
of life. He stimulated discussion
with the coffee group in Kadoka
with questions such as “What’s
the difference between freedom
and liberty; happiness and con-
tentment; or respect and love?” He
believed in living life with memo-
ries in mind and the importance of
choosing what is God-made, and
not man-made.
After the loss of his beloved
wife on June 7, 1995, he remained
dedicated to their marriage, home
and family. In his later years, he
spent his time with his family in
Kadoka and Rapid City.
He remained standing on his
own two feet, until the day his
journey took him to God and his
beloved wife in heaven.
Grateful for having shared his
life are his son, Casey Peterson
and his wife, Kathryn, and their
sons, Casey, Dean, Tanister and
Torin, of Rapid City; his daughter,
Robin Peterson-Lund and her hus-
band, Arnold, of Kadoka and their
children, Arnold III and Skye; the
Arthur McDonald, Louis McDon-
ald, Patty McDonald Fralick and
Danny McDonald families;
brother-in-law, Edmund Risse and
his families; Donna Wagner's chil-
dren and their families; and a host
of other relatives and friends.
In addition to his wife, Frances,
Stanley was preceded in death by
his two sisters, Gloria Risse and
Donna Wagner.
Services were held Saturday,
August 17, at the Kadoka City Au-
ditorium, with Father Bryan
Sorensen officiating.
Music was provided by JoAnne
Stilwell, pianist, Our Lady of Vic-
tory choir and musicians, Dean,

son, Arne III and Skye Lund,

Family Educational
Rights and Privacy Act
Notification of Rights
Elementary and Second-
ary Schools
The Family Educational Rights and Pri-
vacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and
students over 18 years of age ("eligible
students") certain rights with respect to
the student's education records. These
rights are:
The right to inspect and review the stu-
dent's education records within 45 days
of the day the School receives a request
for access.
Parents or eligible students
should submit to the School
principal a written request that
identifies the record(s) they
wish to inspect. The School of-
ficial will make arrangements
for access and notify the par-
ent or eligible student of the
time and place where the
records may be inspected.
The right to request the amendment of
the student's education records that the
parent or eligible student believes are in-
accurate, misleading, or otherwise in vi-
olation of the student's privacy rights
under FERPA.
Parents or eligible students
who wish to ask the School to
amend a record should write
the School principal, clearly
identify the part of the record
they want changed, and spec-
ify why it should be changed.
If the School decides not to
amend the record as re-
quested by the parent or eligi-
ble student, the School will
notify the parent or eligible stu-
dent of the decision and ad-
vise them of their right to a
hearing regarding the request
for amendment. Additional in-
formation regarding the hear-
ing procedures will be
provided to the parent or eligi-
ble student when notified of
the right to a hearing

able information in the student's educa-
tion records, except to the extent that

vacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law, re-
quires that Kadoka Area School District,
with certain exceptions, obtain your writ-
ten consent prior to the disclosure of per-
sonally identifiable information from your
child's education records. However,
Kadoka Area School District may dis-
close appropriately designated "directory
information" without written consent, un-
less you have advised the District to the
contrary in accordance with District pro-
cedures. The primary purpose of direc-
tory information is to allow the Kadoka

records in certain school publications.
Examples include:
A playbill, showing your student's role in
a drama production;
The annual yearbook;
Honor roll or other recognition lists;
Graduation programs; and
Sports activity sheets, such as for
wrestling, showing weight and height of
team members.
Directory information, which is informa-
tion that is generally not considered
harmful or an invasion of privacy if re-
leased, can also be disclosed to outside
organizations without a parent's prior
written consent. Outside organizations
include, but are not limited to, companies
that manufacture class rings or publish
yearbooks. In addition, two federal laws
require local educational agencies
(LEAs) receiving assistance under the
Elementary and Secondary Education
Act of 1965 (ESEA) to provide military re-
cruiters, upon request, with three direc-
tory information categories—names,
addresses and telephone listings—un-

Pesticide Container
Recycling Collections
There are a few pesticide con-
tainer recycling collections coming
up in south-central and south-
western South Dakota, conducted
by the South Dakota Department
of Agriculture (SDDA). Remaining
locations and dates include:
Murdo – 9/3, Winner – 9/4, Philip
– 9/9, Martin – 9/9, Belle Fourche
– 9/10, Rapid City – 9/11, and Wall
– 9/11.
The program collects and recy-
cles agricultural, home and gar-
den pesticide containers. The
planned dates for each location
are listed on igrow.org at:
2013.pdf (all times are local). The
containers collected must be made
from high density polyethylene
(HDPE) embossed with recycling
symbol #2. Containers must be
empty and triple-rinsed to be recy-
cled. Caps and other non-HDPE
parts such as metal handles and
rubber linings cannot be recycled
and can be disposed of as regular
waste. It is recommended to re-
move labels from the containers
before recycling.
Foliar Fungicides on Corn,
Soybeans and Sunflowers
Numerous research studies
have been done regarding foliar
fungicide applications on corn,
soybeans and sunflowers. Results
have been a mixed bag. Under sig-
nificant fungal disease pressure,
one would naturally expect yield
increases for treated crops. More
questionable practices include
fungicide applications with no
fungal diseases present, and fun-
gicide applications following hail
Fungicide applications in the
absence of disease have produced
yield increases, yield decreases
and no response. In considering
multiple research trials, this prac-
tice offers little chance of an eco-
nomic return over the long haul.
One reason that fungicide ap-
plications are considered for a
hail-damaged crop is that disease
infection is more likely to occur
after wounding. However, foliar
diseases managed by fungicides
do not require wounds for infec-
tion. It is also argued that crops
could be more susceptible to fun-
gal pathogens as a result of in-
creased stress. Another reason
fungicides are considered after
hail damage is that physiological
benefits gained from a fungicide
application will help sustain or in-
crease yield of damaged crops. It
is important to note that claims by
the chemical industry do not state
that fungicide applications recover
yield potential lost due to hail
damage. But some claims do sug-
gest fungicide application to hail-
damaged crops will protect the
remaining green tissue and allow
plants to maximize yield after sus-
taining damage.
The standing recommendation
from SDSU Extension is to scout
for disease and consider a fungi-
cide application only if warranted
and use caution before applying
fungicides to hail damaged crops.
The fungicide may make the crop
more susceptible to bacterial dis-

The South Dakota Department
of Agriculture has announced a
bridge loan program available for
Farm Service Agency approved ap-
“The department has always
worked closely with FSA, but the
new SDDA bridge loan program is
great collaboration between both
entities to ensure our producers
can continue with an agricultural
real estate purchase when funds
may not be readily available at
FSA,” said South Dakota Secre-
tary of Agriculture Lucas Lentsch.
“We have also heard from many
bankers who think this is a great
tool for them to utilize when the
opportunity is right and the bank
itself may not be interested in a
bridge loan.”
The bridge loan program is de-
signed to provide interim financing
for FSA applicants approved for
loans to purchase land when FSA
funding is not available at the time
the applicant wants to proceed in
closing the land purchase. The
SDDA loan is structured for
monthly interest only payments
until the funding is available at
FSA and the FSA loan is closed. It
is anticipated that a bridge loan
will be paid off by FSA within
three to nine months.
SDDA does have the ability to
extend the term for up to two
years. If, for any reason, FSA does
not fund the loan, SDDA will term
the loan out over 10 years. The
current interest rate for the de-
partment’s loan is four percent and
borrowers are required to pay all
closing fees.
“Due to the limitations of the
federal budget, there may be a gap
between loan approval and fund-
ing,” said Craig Schaunaman,
state executive director at United
States Department of Agriculture
FSA. “The partnership with the
state is perfect timing and I expect
this collaboration to be a great
benefit to the approved applicants
to be able to go forward with their
land purchase.”
For more information on the
bridge loan program or any of the
financial programs offered through
the South Dakota Department of
Agriculture, contact your local
FSA office.
