Task force tackles open government issues
An open government task force appointed by the governor and the attorney general agreed at its first meeting Aug. 22 in Pierre to look closer at state laws pertaining to government meetings and records and discuss possible changes to those laws. Thirty-one people representing government, news media, law enforcement, courts and business identified a list of issues related to the state's open meetings and records laws and agreed to form two subcommittees to tackle the list. The task force plans to meet again Sept. 12 in Pierre. The task force, appointed by Gov. Dennis Daugaard and Attorney General Marty Jackley, is similar to groups formed by former Attorney General Larry Long a decade ago. The work of those groups led to several changes in South Dakota's open government laws, including the creation of the Open Meetings Commission. "We think good government is transparent and open," Daugaard told the task force in opening comments Aug. 22. Daugaard urged the task force to look at the various open government laws implemented in recent years and determine if any changes are needed. In particular, he cited the state's open records reform law of 2009, which created a "presumption of openness" for public access to government records and files. Jackley noted that there is a "delicate balance" between the need to protect the privacy of certain information kept by government and the need for transparency in government. He noted the number of cases that have been brought before the Open Meetings Commission since its start in 2004. News media representatives on the task force made several suggestions for the entire group to consider, including possible changes to provisions in the open meetings laws that allow for executive sessions and changes in the open records laws that allow for certain types of information to be kept confidential. The group also heard a presentation by Deputy Attorney General Diane Best about the history of various open government laws implemented the past 10 years. --SDNA News Service

State’s ACT scores steady, still above national average
South Dakota’s average composite ACT score remains unchanged from last year at 21.8, where it has been for the past three years. The national average was also unchanged from a year ago, sitting at 21.1 as it has for four of the past five years. While South Dakota’s scores are consistently higher than the national average by several tenths of a point, South Dakota Secretary of Education Dr. Melody Schopp says there is always room for improvement. She said efforts, such as implementation of the Common Core State Standards, should help boost student learning overall. With the Common Core, students will be challenged to engage higher-level thinking skills in order to arrive at a deeper understanding of the concepts they are learning. “The Common Core standards were designed to equip students with the knowledge and skills necessary as they move into postsecondary education and careers,” Schopp said. The ACT is scored on a scale of 1 to 36, with 36 as the highest possible score. Students are tested in the areas of English, mathematics, reading and science, although the science portion is science reasoning, not science-content knowledge. The ACT test is commonly used as a benchmark for college entrance and readiness. In South Dakota, 81 percent of graduating seniors took the ACT, which is high for states that don’t require ACT testing for graduation. The state Department of Education offers South Dakota students several resources to prepare for the test, such as access to free test preparation materials available through SDMyLife.com, an online academic and career planning resource hosted by the department. In addition, the department collaborates with the Board of Regents to identify and assist high school students whose ACT scores indicate they will require remediation at the college and university level. “We have tools in place that can help assist these students in shoring up their knowledge and skills,” Schopp said. “If students can get some of this remedial work done before their postsecondary education, it will save them both time and money once they make the transition.”

Jackson-Kadoka Economic Development Corporation selected to receive $99,000 grant to support business growth
Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack has announced the selection of 16 recipients for grants to help spur economic development and create or save jobs in 17 states. "The funding I am announcing today will help rural businesses, entrepreneurs and tribal communities obtain the financing they need to grow their businesses and create jobs," Vilsack said. "These grants and loans represent the Obama administration's commitment to expand capital investments, spur business development and make infrastructure improvements to strengthen our small towns and communities." USDA Rural Development is providing assistance through the Rural Business Enterprise Grant (RBEG) program, which provides grants to small and emerging rural businesses for projects such as distance learning networks and employment-related adult education programs. Rural public entities (towns, communities, State agencies and municipal authorities), Indian tribes and rural, private non-profit corporations are eligible to apply for funding under this program. For more information about the program, visit http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/BCP_rbeg.html. The Jackson-Kadoka Economic Development Corporation based in Kadoka, SD has been selected to receive a grant of $99,000 to establish a revolving fund to assist small and emerging businesses. For a list of all recipients selected for funding under today's announcement please go to http://www.rurdev.usda.gov/SupportDocuments/rdRBEGChart08162012.pdf. Funding is contingent upon the recipient meeting the terms of the grant agreement. President Obama's plan for rural America has brought about historic investment and resulted in stronger rural communities. Under the President's leadership, these investments in housing, community facilities, businesses and infrastructure have empowered rural America to continue leading the way – strengthening America's economy, small towns and rural communities. USDA's investments in rural communities support the rural way of life that stands as the backbone of our American values. President Obama and Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack are committed to a smarter use of Federal resources to foster sustainable economic prosperity and ensure the government is a strong partner for businesses, entrepreneurs and working families in rural communities. USDA, through its Rural Development mission area, has an active portfolio of more than $172 billion in loans and loan guarantees. These programs are designed to improve the economic stability of rural communities, businesses, residents, farmers and ranchers and improve the quality of life in rural America.
Governor’s order grants permission to move over-width baled livestock feed throughout South Dakota
Gov. Dennis Daugaard has issued an Executive Order that, upon receipt of a permit, grants permission to move over-width baled livestock feed not exceeding 12-feet-wide or 15-feet-high in South Dakota two hours after sunset and two hours before sunrise. Over-width vehicles must be equipped with flashing or rotating white or amber warning lights placed at each side of the load’s widest extremity. The warning lights must be clearly visible to motorists approaching from the front and rear. Movement under the executive order is valid only for baled livestock feed. The Governor’s Executive Order allows over-width moving of baled livestock feed until cessation of the drought emergency or no later than Oct. 20, 2012. “This summer’s persistent drought conditions have left livestock producers across South Dakota with inadequate feed supplies,” said Walt Bones, South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture. “Increasing hauling height and width restrictions for baled hay will allow producers to move feed in a more efficient manner.” The normal restriction on South Dakota highway loads is 14-feet, 3inches high and 8-feet, 6-inches wide. Although height and width restrictions for baled livestock feed have been temporarily increased by Executive Order, several highways in the state have width and height restrictions in place because of construction or permanent structures. Truckers are encouraged to check their routes ahead of time for those restrictions. Agriculture is South Dakota's No. 1 industry, generating nearly $21 billion in annual economic activity and employing more than 80,000 South Dakotans. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture's mission is to promote, protect, preserve and improve this industry for today and tomorrow.

He selected five military heroes from across the nation to participate in a summer long bike ride from Aberdeen, Wash., to the District of Columbia, to raise money and awareness for other veterans in need. The journey will take them three months and they will pedal more than 4,000 miles. Their schedule put them in Kyle, August 21, and Martin, August 22. Miller selected his group of service people to include men and women of varied ages, backgrounds and interests. “I tried to get as diversed of a group as possible,” Miller said. “I figure, pain doesn’t discriminate. So why should we?” The group of cyclists includes service people suffering from partial paralysis, post traumatic stress disorder and homelessness. Two of the cyclists are making this cross country trek on modified bicycles, made to accommodate their lower extremity paralysis. Veterans at Ft. Meade were amazed by the cy-

Staying connected
by Senator John Thune One of the best pieces of advice my parents gave me as a young man getting ready to leave for college was to never forget where I came from. More than 30 years later my parents’ advice still rings true. As a United States Senator I can think of no better way to stay connected to the state I represent than to spend time at home talking with South Dakotans about the issues and policies important to them. I always look forward to the August Congressional work period because it gives me the opportunity to travel across the state and stay connected with constituents. This August work period has been no different. I have enjoyed meeting with a variety of groups and people, and celebrating the success of communities across the state. Earlier this month, I traveled down to Vermillion where I attended the ribbon cutting ceremony for the Lewis and Clark Regional Water System water treatment plant. This new plant is a victory for the 300,000 people in eastern South Dakota who will receive water. I also traveled to Porcupine where I took part in the grand opening celebration of the Rockyford Community School. This school will enroll around 500 preschool through eighth grade students on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. I always enjoy connecting with the agriculture producers in the state, and again this year was pleased to gather with farmers and ranchers at DakotaFest in Mitchell. Due to the high temperatures and sparse rainfall, this has been a particularly difficult year for farmers and ranchers. As Congress works to pass a new Farm Bill, it is important to get feedback from the producers impacted by these policies. Fair season is also upon us, and that meant visits to Parker for the Turner County Fair and Aberdeen for the Brown County Fair. I enjoyed taking in the exhibits, food, and music with many of my fellow fair-goers. Of course, no fair season would be complete without a trip to Huron. I look forward to again attending the South Dakota State Fair. As I wrap up another August work period, I was glad to connect with people all over the state. It is always good to hear directly from the people I am fortunate enough to represent and those who will continue to keep me close to South Dakota.

Children’s Care Hospital and school phone system upgraded; new numbers in place
Children's Care Hospital and School and subsidiary Rehabilitation Medical Supply in Sioux Falls and Rapid City have upgraded their phone systems and new numbers are now in place. Both toll-free numbers (800-5849294 in Sioux Falls and 800-5849298 in Rapid City) for the organization will remain the same. The old phone and fax numbers for the main locations, as well as for admissions and appointment desks, will forward for at least six months. New main numbers are: •Children's Care Hospital & School: 605-444-9500 ~ Main fax: 605-444-9501 •Children's Care Rehabilitation Center: 605-444-9700 ~ Fax: 605444-9701 •Rehabilitation Medical Supply, Sioux Falls: 605-444-9702 ~ Fax: 605-444-9703 •Children's Care, Rapid City: 605-791-7400 ~ Fax: 605-791-7401 •Rehabilitation Medical Supply, Rapid City: 605-791-7402 ~ Fax: 605-791-7401 •Children's Care Foundation: 605-444-9800 ~ Fax: 605-444-9801 Other key numbers, including the unit nurses' stations and nurse managers, will forward for three months. Most numbers have a recording stating that the number has changed, and to please hang up and call the new number. A dial-by-name directory will be available at each location, or you may ask the operator to connect you to the individual or department you are trying to reach. Organizational growth has necessitated acquiring a block of numbers with new prefixes to provide better access to more staff, as well as provide better tools to help those we serve. We hope the initial switchover causes as little inconvenience as possible to our families and colleagues. Please contact us with any questions you may have. Children's Care Hospital & School is a private, non-profit organization serving nearly 2,000 individuals with special needs each year from centers in Sioux Falls and Rapid City. Services are delivered through residential, inpatient, school, outpatient and outreach programs.
2 Chronicles 20:5-12 Modern-day Christians can learn some good lessons from Old Testament prayers. When Jehoshaphat beseeched God for help, he struck a balance between askA Balanced Prayer ing the Lord to meet his needs and proclaiming His greatness. Likewise, our requests shouldbe made with recognition of who God is. Otherwise, the focus of our prayers becomes need, weakness, failure, or fear. Jehoshaphat cried out to God about his terrible predicament, but he also exalted the Lord's attributes, acknowledging the great things He had done. When we pray like this, we become stronger, bolder, and more forthright. That's why knowing the Word of God is so important. When we read about how the Lord worked in the lives of others, we understand His awesome power and might. Then we can look to the men and women of the Old Testament as an example and begin to pray in a similar way. God's wonderworking power is still available today, and He wants His children to access it. By proclaiming, "Power and might are in Your hand so that no one can stand against You" (v. 6), Jehoshaphat was praising God and at the same time reminding himself of the Lord's greatness. As you pray, remind God of His mercy, talk to Him about His grace, and recall His mighty power. Do you want to revolutionize your prayer life? If you focus as much attention on declaring the attributes of the Lord as you do on making requests, your prayers will take on a whole new dimension. They'll cease to be self-centered and instead will become God-centered.

Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
Hands Off Gardening
Flower gardens tend to have a mind of their own. They sometimes resist suggestions and prefer to do their own thing. That has been the case with the one behind our house this year, but it has put on a fairly good show anyway that was mostly done by itself without much input from us. It all started last fall when wife Corinne yearned for a glorious spring display of tulips, daffodils, and hyacinths. She therefore ordered a hundred or so bulbs which we carefully planted with lashings of bone-meal fertilizer. This spring, then, Corinne eagerly waited for the expected riot of color and beauty. It didn’t happen. It was a bad year for bulbs for some unknown reason, and the whole local area was affected. We did have a few nice daffodils and one hot-pink tulip. The tulip was pleasant to look at for a few days until a hurricane-strength wind came through and blew all its petals off. Some of the other tulips and the hyacinths came up and flowered but they were stunted things with the blooms barely visible and low enough to the ground that they were mostly hidden by leaves. They weren’t much to look at. Never mind. The big clump of irises came through and put on a nice show of purple blooms. They lasted quite a while and were followed by some purple salvia here and there. The best showing, though, was the larkspur which came next. These are actually annual plants instead of perennial, but they throw out so many seeds that, if you have them one year, you’re apt to have more of them the next. Such was the case. We had huge areas that came up with loads of purple, blue and white spiky flowers. They went on a long time and were great. Next on the garden’s agenda were hollyhocks. There was one big clump of those plus a couple of smaller ones. They were mostly pink with one or two reds and provided a nice display. We thought they were done for the year, but recently they’ve thrown out a few more blooms, especially at the top. The bottom part of each stalk has gone to seed enough that a heretofore-unidentified bird parks itself sideways on a stock each morning and crunches the seeds. The bird has some pinkish orange on its breast, some white wing bars, and a yellow beak but doesn’t quite match any pictures in the bird book. If the seeds hold out long enough, we might eventually get a good enough look to figure things out. Grasshoppers and some disease caused problems for a while, but those have now disappeared and been replaced by recurrent growth. We are slightly wondering if more spikes with flowers will appear before frost, but we’ll have to wait and see on that. At the moment, we’ve mostly gone from hollyhocks to morning glories. These are large purple blooms that brighten our mornings. They have finally granted Corinne’s wish to have something pretty trail over the retaining wall. She originally wanted some special kind of petunias for that purpose, but those were not available in any of the local greenhouses this spring. We did find another plant that grows down instead of up and has lots of small yellow or pink blooms. Those were potted, parked behind the wall, and instructed to grow over and down. They refused. Every time Corinne would turn them so a branch was headed over, they pulled those back and sent them another direction. Maybe the wall was too hot or something. The morning glories, though, all by themselves started growing over and down so that three hangingdown sprigs are now in place and blooming. They are also climbing up the little lilac that never bloomed and up some elm sprigs that will be pulled later this fall. Also in evidence are a little cedar tree and various other nonblooming plants of various sizes and shapes. They all add interest and have grown thanks to the water and fertilizer Corinne has given them over the summer. She is into nurturing things including plants. The creeping jenny likes the care too, but it can’t be uprooted at present without also pulling the morning glories. It actually has pretty white flowers that could be enjoyed more if one didn’t know what a pest this plant can be. So, that’s the story of the flower garden. It definitely had a mind of its own this year but still managed to provide beauty and interest. Who knows, maybe next year will be even better. The bulbs are still there and might bloom, and other neat stuff is apt to happen. We’ll look forward to it. The silly flowerbed seems to know what it’s doing. Except for pulling a few weeds and watering, maybe we should just keep our hands off.

Frank Carlson didn’t win any rodeos this week since he and his crew didn’t enter any. They did win at the Frontier Days Rodeo in White River last week however plus a couple of others previously this summer. Frank and family did attend the Rosebud rodeos and fair. On Wednesday they went to the matched bronc ride which Frank said was awesome. On Friday, there were other rodeo events in which Toni’s sister barrel raced in 18 seconds flat, which wasn’t quite good enough to take first but was near the top. Toni does barrels and breakaway too when she isn’t expecting an addition to their family in a month or so. On Sunday, there was more rodeo action where local Christy Willert came in second in barrels, but her husband, Jamie, got bucked off. Other than attending rodeos, Frank has been getting in a lot of cattle work with calves being given preconditioning shots. He’s also been riding a few colts and doing some training. Ruth Ann Niehoff is back in the area after spending the summer at her home in Carson City, Nevada. Various of Dennis and her kids came through from military service and work in far flung areas so she wanted to be home for that. She plans to be here through most of September to deal with various ranch things. On Sunday, Ruth Ann and her mom, Kate DeVries, attended church in Belvidere. Wade Fox said he’s had pretty good luck fishing lately. The bass are biting. Right now, however, he’s fishing for sport instead of food and is doing catch and release. Sometimes fish taste a bit mossy at this time of year anyway. Wade plans to introduce his daughter to the joys of fishing after the weather cools down a bit. He has been doing some trimming of horse hooves lately but not a lot of shoeing. Betty Kusick had surgery to remove some skin cancer from the back of her left hand this week in Rapid City. She is now sporting a bandage that has some kind of stick in it to prevent a lot of bending. This is inconvenient since Betty is left-handed. She was, however, able to fry some fish for dinner on Saturday when Joe Livermont came to visit. On Saturday, Marlene and Bert Perault helped give fall shots to calves over at Luke Carlson’s which is Marlene’s dad’s old place. Mike helped do similar work that day over at Larry and Lonny Johnston’s, and Bert had helped there on Friday. On Sunday, all three worked some calves of their own with the help of Bud Perault. When there isn’t cattle work, the family has been scraping the horse barn at their river place in preparation for painting. Marlene said that daughter Lesa is now an RN since she passed her state boards and finished her college training. She is working at Rapid City Regional Hospital where she takes care of new babies and the mothers who have just given birth. She says it is her dream job. Marlene figures she inherited her love of that kind of work from Marlene’s mom, Lillian Carlson, who has always enjoyed working with babies and kids. Delores Bonenberger attended a surprise birthday party for Jo Rodgers in Belvidere on Sunday. It was thrown by her son and husband, Jory and John. Nikki Bonenberger and kids also attended. Jory told Delores that it was Jo’s 40th birthday, but Jo later corrected that her 40th was last year and this year was 41. Usually people stall out at 39 instead of 40. They all enjoyed cake and ice cream and
visiting. At the ranch, Keith, Brett and Kade were all around this weekend doing some fencing in preparation for weaning. Delores manned the kitchen and provided meals as necessary for her hungry crew. The guys took time off to help fight the fire over at DJ Addison’s on Saturday. Jeff Willert is sporting a sling on his arm to help his broken collarbone feel better and heal itself. He will have a doctor appointment soon but doesn’t seem to be in a lot of misery although he’s still sore. Colter Carlson said they have been gathering bulls and giving fall shots. On Saturday, all the guys on the place (Cole Hindman at the Pines, Joe Pavlas on the Phipps place and Colter on the home place) all took time to go to the Addison fire. Colter said it was mostly taken care of already by the time they drove the 16 miles to Belvidere and then northeast to Addison’s. Baxter Badure went to the fire as well. Russ and Gay Spinsby went to Kadoka for supplies on Saturday. They noticed the fire on their way home but weren’t sure where it was. They have been working on their tractor in preparation for moving some hay before long. Jim Addison said his nephew, Myles Addison, had a rough day on Saturday. He was checking cows out at the place when the hot wire on the pickup battery shorted out and started a prairie fire. Jim figured the fire ended up being maybe a mile long but not very wide, maybe 120 acres were burned. The pickup was saved. Jami Addison started school last week in Murdo, but Jim said they are planning to let school out early the next few days since the temperatures are forecast to be in 100s. Ronda and Rick Dennis picked up their daughter, Bobbi Jo, and Ben at the airport early Thursday morning. They traveled to Mt. Rushmore and went on to Deadwood, where they stayed the night. Friday morning they returned to Rapid City where they spent the remainder of the weekend with Dana DeVries. A group of family members, and friends, Rob and Peggy Eckert, Brad and Scotti Block and Bob Eckert attended the fair Friday night. Lori and Aaron Iversen and children were also in Rapid City for the weekend. On Saturday Ronda and Rick’s family went to Reptile Gardens and the fair. Everyone returned to their homes on Sunday; Bobbi and Ben rode back to Denver with Rob. Chuck and Merry Willard have had their daughter and granddaughter, Coleen and Frankie Grace, home for a couple of weeks. Part of the visit was marred by Frankie getting the flu and passing it to Coleen, although Chuck and Merry escaped it somehow. Coleen’s husband, Billy, brought his gals to Rapid City for pickup, and Merry will take them back to Pinedale, WY, later this week where she plans to stay for a bit and maybe help with some canning. Last week, everyone attended the 4-H rodeo in Ft. Pierre. Merry’s niece and nephew from Trail City participated, and Merry’s brother and his wife were there to see their kids compete as were Merry’s folks. The weekend before this, a Bickel family reunion was held in the Mobridge area. Merry’s folks and three of her four brothers and their families were there. The fourth brother was on a mission trip to Indonesia at the time and didn’t make it back. He was helping build some homes out of bamboo. Daughter Niki Kleinsasser and kids were also at the reunion. Merry said her granddaughter, Frankie, is a lot of fun and enjoys the chickens, cats, horses, ropes, and lots of things outside. She is 16-months old. Later this week, everyone will go to Nebraska to visit Casey before Coleen returns home. Troy J. Dent Jr., graduated with a Doctor of Philosophy with a major in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Alabama in Tuscaloosa, AL, on August 4, 2012. He graduated from high school in Ft. Walton Beach, Florida. Troy is the son of Retired Col. Troy Dent and Kay Dent of Shalimar, Florida. Troy Jr. is currently employed by Applied Research Associates in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Kay Dent graduated from Belvidere High School in 1954. She is the daughter of Wilbur and Eleanor Osborn.

Marjorie Anne Letellier • 462-6228 We can learn a lot from the game of volleyball. If you do not concentrate on serving, you will surely lose. Ed and Carol Ferguson spent last weekend at their cabin in Rochford. When they returned Tuesday evening, they had overnight guests. Ed’s cousins, Blanche Cox of Newcastle, Mary Simmons from Gillette and George “Cap” Ferguson of Silt, Colorado, were driving through western South Dakota looking at locations where they had lived as children and other places of family interest. Bruce and Jessie Ring and Stephanie attended a funeral in Iowa last week and returned home on Wednesday. June Ring tended their animals and garden while they were gone. Gale, JoAnn and Jerry Letellier kept appointments in Pierre on Monday and then in the evening they all attended the garden and yard tour at the new home of Luann and Lowell Noeske in Pierre. James Letellier was among the crowd taking in the Pen of Three heifer show in White River on Wednesday. He got home in time to answer two fire calls by the White River. Please be careful the ground is burning up and this whole country could go up in flash. Keep your eyes open and don’t hesitate to call if you see smoke. Maxine Allard and June Ring accompanied Janice Ring to the Beryl Brunsch funeral on Thursday afternoon. School News: Norris school will hold an open house on Wednesday, August 29 from 4-6 p.m. Everyone is invited to attend. No school on next Monday, Labor Day, Sept 3. Several folks from this area attended services for Beryl Brunsch, 74, in Martin on Thursday afternoon. Beryl served in the U.S. Marine and returned home to ranch, rope and drive truck. When we were first married and without many luxuries, Beryl knocked at our door holding a vacuum cleaner all ready to demonstrate it. I was so excited, but knew better than to get my hopes up. I didn’t know he was a local guy. While he was demonstrating it; Jim came in called him by name they shook hands and I was so shocked that they knew each other! They got to talking and I didn’t think I would ever get to buy that vacuum cleaner, but we did. I will never forget it. Our hearts and prayers go out for his dear mother, Lucille, his daughter and other family members. It has been a heartbreaking summer for all of us who love and know the Brunsch family. Friday, Jeanne Merchen accompanied her sister, Pat Porch, to Rapid City. They joined Bunny Berry, Carol Merchen and Darrel and Lynette Batie at Minnerva’s for a Batie sibling celebration of Jeanne and Bunny’s birthdays. Friday, Evan and Dorothy Bligh kept appointments in Pierre and then went on to Valentine, NE, for the Fulton’s horse sale. Folks around here have kept the road busy traveling to the Rosebud Fair over the weekend. The big news is that the Red Leaf fast pitch team came away champions over the Nelson team with a score 12-0. Pitcher Richard Charging Hawk and his team did it again. Norris is once again the home of champions! Yes, we are proud of that. Friday, Gale, JoAnn, Gary and Jerry Letellier and Jim Carey traveled to Sioux Falls. That evening they joined Dan Letellier and his friend, Colleen, and his son, Joe, and his friend, Hanna, at the Brazilian Grille to help Joe celebrate his 18th birthday. Sharon Ring made a trip to Mission on Saturday. Saturday, June Ring and grandson, Ryan, enjoyed taking in the Rosebud Fair garden show, pow wow and parade. They were kept busy helping with entries at the garden show. At the close of the day several best of show awards were given out in the children and adult divisions. Ryan was awarded best of show for his green beans and June received best of show award for her black diamond watermelon. Good job! Bob Kaufman of Parker, Colorado, was visiting his mother, Irene Kaufman, for several days this week. Friday night Irene hosted a supper in Bob’s honor; guests were Marjorie Popkes of Mission, Ed, Carol and Jesse Ferguson of Norris. This same group traveled to the Popkes’ new home on Saturday night to enjoy another meal and more reminiscing. Bob returned to his home on Sunday. Maxine Allard was thrilled to have Virginia Coller and Stacy Valandry stop for a visit Sunday afternoon. The gals went home with copies of Maxine’s books, too. Stacy was too young to go to school when her mom, Iris, was
cooking at the Day School so she spent her time at the Phipps School when Maxine was teaching there. It sure beat just sitting in the cook shack. Sunday, James and Marjorie Letellier started out for the Dwain and Rose Mooney sale in Kilgore only to meet up with a road closed sign at the state line. They turned on the gravel road and began their little “Nebraska back roads” tour to Crookston then on to Kilgore. They did make it to the sale and also enjoyed a visit with their daughter, Julie before returning home. On Monday funeral services for life long Todd County resident, Walt Heinert, 89, were held. Services were held in Valentine, NE, at the Our Saviour Lutheran Church with burial at the St. John Lutheran Cemetery in Norris. Walt and Erna Heinert were a part of our community and church for many many years. Walt’s grandsons are the fourth generation on the home place. Our hearts and prayers are with you at this sad time of loss. Our prayers go out especially to his wife, Erna, and family. You are not alone, there are a heap of friends and neighbors willing and ready to be of support in this time of great loss. We will long remember the man Walt Heinert.

Over 70 percent of landowners to be subjects to death tax
Senator John Thune (R-SD) said the American Farm Bureau Federation report released August 21 clearly shows that the Democrat controlled Senate’s recently passed tax legislation would jeopardize the future of 71 percent of South Dakota’s family farms because it intentionally returns the death tax exemption to $1 million next year instead of keeping it at the current $5 million. Over the past few years the prices of all South Dakota agricultural land, especially cropland, has increased substantially. This dramatic price increase, along with the Democrats’ proposal to reduce the death tax exemption level to $1 million, could make passing a family farm of only a few hundred acres to the next generation economically impossible due to death tax liability. According to data collected by AFBF, when applying 2012 farm real estate values, farms and ranches larger than 714 acres would likely exceed the $1 million exemption level. Crop producers would be particularly impacted by the lower exemption levels, as farms larger than 431 acres of cropland would be likely to exceed the $1 million exemption level. “This report outlines just how devastating the Senate Democrats’ death tax proposal would be to South Dakota farmers and ranchers,” said Thune. “The value of cropland across South Dakota has increased by more than 23 percent over the last year. According to the data collected by AFBF from the United States Department of Agriculture’s National Agriculture Statistics Service, the appreciated value of cropland throughout the state means that nearly 71 percent of South Dakota farms would exceed the $1 million exemption level under the Senate Democrats’ proposal. Since many family farm and ranch assets consist of land, livestock, equipment, and small cash reserves, this punitive tax leaves the next generation with little choice but to sell family holdings to pay the death tax. In March of this year, I introduced the Death Tax Repeal Permanency Act which would permanently repeal the federal death tax and the generation skipping transfer tax. Repeal of this destructive tax is critical to keeping family farms and ranches intact across South Dakota.” “Today’s report shows that the outdated death tax would impact over half of South Dakota’s farms and ranches if it is allowed to revert to pre-2001 levels,” said Scott VanderWal, president of the South Dakota Farm Bureau. “The Senate should pass Senator Thune’s death tax repeal bill, or at the very least, extend current levels to protect South Dakota’s agriculture producers from this unfair tax.” On July 25, Senate Democrats passed legislation on a party line vote of 51 to 48 that would increase taxes on small businesses and families. Additionally, if enacted, this bill would return the current $5 million death tax exemption to $1 million next year, and would raise the tax rate from the current top rate of 35 percent to an exorbitant 55 percent. Senator Thune’s legislation, the Death Tax Repeal Permanency Act, has 37 cosponsors and is supported by more than 50 groups and organizations. Representative Kevin Brady (R-TX) introduced identical legislation in the House of Representatives and the bill has more than 200 bipartisan cosponsors.

Governor asks travelers to stay safe
Gov. Dennis Daugaard is asking motorists to be extra careful when traveling on Labor Day weekend. Labor Day is the unofficial end of summer, and families often make it a time for one final outing together, the Governor said. Ten people were killed and 247 others were injured in crashes on South Dakota roads during the past five Labor Day weekends, according to the state Office of Accident Records. Four of those fatalities involved alcohol-related crashes. “Designating a sober driver and always making it a firm practice to never drink and drive greatly increase the chances of having a safe trip and an enjoyable holiday weekend,’’ Gov. Daugaard said. “Most accidents are entirely preventable if drivers make safe choices and make sure their passengers do, too.’’ That means always using seatbelts, heeding speed limits, not overdriving road conditions and never driving after drinking. “Those are important habits whenever you travel,’’ the Governor said. “They are especially important when additional traffic will be on our highways during Labor Day weekend.’’

Kougars put together strong win against Edgemont Moguls
Edgemont Moguls – 8 Kadoka Area Kougars – 44 The 2012 football season has begun for the Kadoka Area Kougars and the team got off on the right foot defeating the Edgemont Moguls 44-8. We set out to block, tackle and take care of the football and we felt if we do those three things right that we would be able to do what we wanted to do; the kids came out and executed that game plan very well. Sometimes the first game of the year you come out and make some mistakes, but for the most part we kept the mistakes to a minimum, only recording four penalties, and no turnovers. I thought that our offensive line did a nice job blocking. We ran the ball very effectively behind the blocking of Clint Stout, Herbie O’Daniel, Gavin DeVries, Logan Ammons and Logan Christensen. Our backs all had some very good runs lead by Chandlier Sudbeck who carried the ball 11 times for 111 yards and 2 touchdowns, and Chance Knutson who carried it 6 times for 44 yards and 2 touchdowns. Our passing game was pretty effective as well. Kenar VanderMay completed 9 of his 12 passes for 155 yards and 1 touchdown. Aaron Janis was 1-3 for 45 yards and 1 touchdown. Our leading receivers were Chandlier Sudbeck with 2 catches for 45 yards and 1 touchdown, Logan Christensen had 1 catch for 30 yards, Chris Anderson had 1 catch for 45 yards and 1 TD, Lane Patterson had 2 catches for 42 yards, Klay O’Daniel had 2 catches for 23 yards, and Chance Knutson 1 catch for 12 yards. Defensively, we did a solid job. When I look at the tackle stats for the week everyone had very similar numbers which meant that we were doing a good job of team tackling. Edgemont was stifled by our pressure and never were able to sustain a real good drive. This week we play our first conference game as we host the New Underwood Tigers. New Underwood returns a good core of their starters from last season and will pose as a very challenging opponent. I look for it to be a very exciting game this week. --by Coach Chad Eisenbraun

Varsity volleyball team has a clean sweep at Little Wound
The Kadoka Volleyball team traveled to Little Wound on Saturday and came up with a nice win 25-20, 25-11, 25-21. The team really looked sharp defensively and serving. We served 68/72 which is 94%, with 12 aces; Tessa Stout having 7 of those. Mariah Pierce and Tessa Stout combined for 35/37 serving, 26 service points, and 9 aces. Defensively, we just didn't let much drop on the floor and the communication was top-notch. Tessa Stout had 8 set assists and Taylor Merchen added 4. Offensively, we were just average. We set pretty well, but struggled with getting kills. Raven Jorgensen led the way in attackiong with 12/13 and 6 kills. Marti Herber, Shaley Herber and Kwincy Ferguson added 4 kills each. Overall is was a very solid first-game performance. The junior varsity lost 2-1. We started two freshmen and an eigth grader so there were some nerves, but overall they played fair for the first time out together. Mackenzie Word and Shelby Uhlir had a nice serving match. Scout Sudbeck played well offensively and had some nice kills for her first time playing in high school. Allie Romero and Destiny Dale did the setting, and both did pretty well. Shaina Solon, an eighth grader, and Jerica Coller, a ninth grader, filled the middle front and middle back and managed themselves well for their first starts on the junior varsity. The "C" team lost 2-0. The team is made up of mostly eigth and ninth graders, so they were very nervous. They had some nice serves and serve received the ball well at times, but the inexperience showed. They will definitely improve as the year proceeds. Next action is Tuesday at Kadoka versus Takini and Oerlichs. This is varsity only. Then we will play in Philip on Thursday, August 30, which will include "C" team starting at 5:00 p.m. and junior varsity and varsity to follow. --by Coach Barry Hutchinson

Inservice will begin on Tuesday, August 21. The board will provide lunch for staff on that day. Mr. Hermann stated that the district wide goal this year is to raise academics; he reported that the Dakota Step results are on the SD Department of Education website; the results have just become available so a complete comparison review has not yet been done; a different tiered grading scale is now being reported; attendance in most areas was good. The hiring process used was to select the best applicant for the position; some positions are working on alternative certification and the process for gaining full certification; the Department of Education is behind in processing paperwork for the applications. PRINCIPALS’ REPORTS: Mr. Seiler reported that staff members have raised concerns on tardies. This will be addressed with staff monitoring halls; students who are tardy will have to see the principal to be admitted to class with follow-up consequences for habitual tardies. ICU will be established. This program will provide accountability for missing assignments. Teachers will have assigned classes (grade levels) and will track those students through their high school career with the goal of raising the bar and expectations for students. Mr. Seiler will be suggesting that each class select a community service project. The project hours and participation will be documented and will teach the value of giving back to the community and may also be used on the student’s scholarship applications. Mr. Nemecek reported the need for a full time instructional aide in the pre-school classroom. Due to the large class size, the pre-school will be split to two sessions (morning and afternoon). The staffing increase will be a one-half FTE due to re-assignment of some staffing duties and future of the position will be based upon the number of students. Mr. Nemecek reported that he hopes to adopt the Power Walk Through, a research based program, as a strategy to increase student achievement. The program involves a daily observation visit to each classroom and can provide immediate feedback and communication to the teacher. The program is not a substitute for teacher evaluation but as an additional tool for instruction development. BOARD COMMITTEE REPORTS: BUILDING COMMITTEE: Mr. Hermann reported that the building project has gone well; windows should be done on August 16. When the metal siding was removed from the west wall of the grade wing it was discovered that the plywood was deteriorated and needed to be replaced. The stucco on the west wall and the cement curb is scheduled to be completed by August 24. Windows for the grade wing section will be delivered in two to four weeks. Mr. Hermann stated that he did not approve the change order for the section of the east wall by the east entrance because of the cost for cosmetic purpose only. Carpets are being cleaned and the great hall should be completed by Monday, August 20. Other summer projects included repairs at the Interior School and gym, entrance door replaced and carpets replaced in two rooms; the Long Valley School project included replacing carpet in two rooms, weather stripping and replacement of some ceiling tile; the Midland School also had carpet installed in two rooms and upgrades in the kitchen. The new bus will be delivered in September. CITIZEN’S INPUT: Robyn Jones commented that the football field looks really good.

Bob Fanning, Plant Pathology Field Specialist • 605-842-1267 Planting Winter Wheat Farmers will soon be planting winter wheat, and have a number of issues to consider. What variety or varieties to plant, whether to use a fungicide seed treatment, when to plant, planting into dry soil, preventing stand losses to grasshoppers, and how to avoid the viral diseases wheat streak mosaic virus and barley yellow dwarf are only some of the things to think about. 2012 has been a stark reminder of the value of wheat, and particularly winter wheat, in cropping systems, and should gain acres in many areas of South Dakota. Wheat provides diversity in crop rotations, time for soil moisture regeneration, increased water holding capacity, improved soil health and other benefits, while producing a commodity that is valued in the marketplace. The SDSU “2012 Winter Wheat Variety Yield Results” is currently available at: http://www.wintercereals.us/research_variety_trial.asp , and should soon be found in the Library” on “Resource http://igrow.org/agronomy/wheat/. This document is eagerly anticipated by winter wheat producers each year to help make decisions on varieties to plant. An important decision in the 2012 planting season will be how to manage planting into dry soil. Three possible options are suggested, 1. Plant at the normal seeding depth (1 ½ - 2”) during the normal, recommended planting time (Sept 15 – Oct 20) and hope for rain, 2. Use a hoe drill to plant into moisture (if possible) during the recommended planting dates, or 3. Wait for rain and then plant. Each of these options has their advantages and risks. Be sure to consider the crop insurance implications and deadlines when planning your strategy. The 2012 drought has challenged the management abilities of South Dakota producers, and will continue to do so. A number of articles and resources have rebeen posted to cently http://igrow.org/agronomy/wheat/ that provide more detailed information on how to deal with the issues mentioned above. To contact a field specialist directly, visit http://igrow.org/about/ for a complete listing of the staff, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses at the regional centers. 2012 Pesticide Container Recycling Collections The South Dakota Department of Agriculture’s Pesticide Container Recycling Collection program is drawing to a close for the year, with the remaining sites being in the south-central and western part of the state. Some of the sites are listed in the calendar below. The entire list can be found at the SD Dept of Ag website: http://sdda.sd.gov/ag_services/. Click “Container Recycling & Waste Pesticide Collection Program”, and then “2012 Pesticide Container Recycling Collection Schedule.” This website also lists contact information for sites at Vermillion and Pierre, which will accept containers anytime during regular business hours.

Fuel Your Workout Our media use and exposure to advertising messages has been greatly elevated in recent years. The mass media bombards us with a variety of information about health, nutrition and fitness every day. Much of the information lacks consistency; so many active individuals aren’t sure what to believe. Eating for a great workout provides enough protein, water, vitamins, minerals, carbohydrates and fat to enable the body to perform at its optimal level. Except for calories and water, the nutritional needs are basically the same for people who exercise for fun and health, for athletes and for those who are less active. Do you want to know how much of each food group you need to consume daily? Choose My Plate’s Daily Food Plan (http://www.choosemyplate.gov/supertracker-tools/daily-foodplans.html) can serve as a guide to eating well for fitness and health. The amount of food we need varies depending on our age, size, and activity level. The Daily Food plan calculates what and how much to eat within your calorie allowance. Some foods fuel your fitness workouts better than others. Bananas and oranges are good examples of foods to eat throughout fitness training. They are potassium-rich foods which replace sweat loss. Bananas are also full of carbohydrates which fuel muscle activity. We get carbohydrates
from grains, fruits, and vegetables; we should avoid simple sugars. Grain-based foods have many good qualities for fitness-oriented individuals. Grains and cereals are loaded with carbohydrates. Cereals that are fortified provide increased nutrients, especially iron. Whole grain foods provide potassium, fiber and nutrients. Dairy foods should be eaten with each meal. They are very good sources of protein and calcium; the protein builds muscle and calcium helps maintain strong bones. For a quick and easy way to boost your protein, add a can a tuna to salads or pasta. An ordinary (6.5 ounce) can of tuna supplies 40 grams of low-fat protein. To stay hydrated throughout exercise, drink chilled water before, during, and after exercise. Cool fluids are absorbed quickly. Be sure to drink chilled fluids at frequent intervals. Water acts as your body’s cooling system. For those individuals who exercise for more than 60 minutes in hot conditions, sports drinks provide not only fluid, but also carbohydrates and sodium. Strive for healthy eating practices to obtain the fitness results you want. Eating right can help fuel your event or workout.

Watch for weeds in imported hay
Shortages in pasture availability have forced many to purchase hay this year, sometimes from other states or lower quality hay. When doing this, it is important to be aware of potential unintended consequences, such as introductions of new noxious/invasive weeds, potentially toxic weeds in the hay, and hay containing herbicide residues that could injure broadleaf crops in future years, says Mike Moechnig, SDSU Extension Weeds Specialist and Roger Gates, SDSU Rangeland Extension Specialist. "It is illegal to transport hay containing noxious weed seeds in South Dakota regardless if the hay is from this or another state," Moechnig said. "In fact, this is a Class 2 misdemeanor that could be punishable by 30 days in prison and/or a $500 fine." Gates adds that this law applies to situations in which the violation constitutes a "substantial" risk of contaminating fields or other land. "Avoiding known weed patches at harvest will reduce contamination. Hauling bales that are net wrapped or tarping the load will minimize the risk of excessive weed seed distribution," Gates said. The specialists say perhaps the primary motivation to avoid weedy hay is to avoid future weed infestation problems on your property. "Fortunately, weed infestations generally do not explode in a single season so watching for noxious or invasive species next year should enable effective control of new infestations before they become a costly problem," Moechnig said. "Leafy spurge, Canada thistle, and yellow toadflax are likely some of the most difficult weeds to control that may be present in grass hay so it is particularly important to be watching for these weed species next year." Moechnig says the need to hay areas normally not harvested could also increase the risk of having toxic weeds in the hay. "Perhaps the most toxic weeds are poison hemlock and waterhemlock," Moechnig said. "Lethal doses for some livestock species may be only 0.2 - 0.8 percent of their body weight." He adds that poison hemlock populations seemed to expand over the past couple years, particularly in northeastern South Dakota, which may be partially due to greater precipitation rates. "Hemlock species are in the carrot plant family, so flower clusters resembling carrot flowers may be visible in hay," Moechnig said. "Whorled milkweed is another weed of concern, but populations are often not very dense, particularly in areas with taller grass that may be hayed. Common weed species, such as kochia, lambsquarters, pigweeds, thistles, and others can also increase hay nitrate concentrations if present in large quantities." In addition to unknown weed seeds and plants in the hay, Gates says unknown herbicide residues could also cause problems. "Grass treated with herbicides such as picloram (Tordon, Grazon), (Milestone/Foreaminopyralid Front), or clopyralid (Curtail, Stinger) could still contain residues of these herbicides that will quickly pass through livestock and can remain in their manure," Gates said. "Spreading this manure or feeding bales on fields that may be planted to broadleaf crops next year could result in severe crop injury. These residues could persist in the soil for 2 - 3 years. Therefore, it is important to keep manure in pastures if it is not known exactly what herbicides were applied to the hayfield." Pictures of noxious weeds and control recommendations may be found on iGrow.org and on iPhone and Android cell phones apps provided by SDSU. Infestation risk may also be minimized by careful management of hay feeding areas. Drought conditions reduce the vigor of pasture vegetation increasing bare ground and enhancing successful weed germination and establishment. Feeding imported hay in a restricted area or even in corrals may contain the area that needs to be carefully monitored the following spring. Concerns of weeds and herbicide residues do not have to be limiting factors when purchasing hay. Properly responding to risks of new weed infestations or contaminated manure can enable people to avoid greater and more costly problems in the future. To learn more visit iGrow.org.

SDSU Extension offers nitrate testing across the state
Due to the drought, nitrate toxicity is an issue this growing season. Before cutting silage or feeding forages to livestock, test for nitrates. SDSU Extension offers a nitrate quick test for standing forage. Interested parties can take forage samples to the following Extension Regional Centers; Lemmon, 605.374.4177, Rapid City, 605.394.1722, and Winner, 605.842.1267; and the following county offices; Charles Mix County Office, Clark County Office, Douglas County Office, Hamlin County Office, or Pennington County Office. Please call before you take samples to be tested to ensure that the individual who is trained to do the testing is available. Nitrate quick test is an indicator of presence or absence of nitrate in forages. If present, producers can send the sample in for a quantitative analysis or wait for plants to continue to mature/grow. Trained personnel are only allowed to do the testing. If you have any questions on nitrate testing, contact your local SDSU Extension Regional Center. For information on how to evaluate nitrate tests or other drought resources, visit iGrow.org/drought.
