Storm brings rain,
wind, damaging hail
Rhonda Antonsen/Kadoka Press
Stormy weather hit the Kadoka area on Tuesday, July 30. Several homes and vehicles were damaged as a result of the
large hail and strong winds. The home of Brady and Dayle Knutson was damaged with several broken windows, includ-
ing the bay window, and siding. See more photos on page 4.
Although several items were discussed, road mat-
ters and personnel matters were the only items
listed on the agenda for the special meeting held by
the Jackson County Commissioners on Thursday,
August 1.
One matter opened for discussion by the commis-
sioners was a bill from Pennington County for the
reprogramming of the surrounding fire departments
radios. Commissioner Glen Bennett questioned why
Jackson County is paying for the reprogramming
when other counties do not cover the expenses for
upgrading the radios of their local fire departments.
Commissioner Ronnie Twiss clarified that the ra-
dios were reprogrammed so that they would have in-
dividual channels for each agency.
Commissioner Larry Denke felt that each fire de-
partment has ample money this time of the year to
pay for their own reprogramming.
Denke suggested Jackson County pay the bill for
the reprogramming and then have the fire depart-
ments reimburse the county for the charges.
Bennett felt it was not the counties job to bill and
collect money for the radios.
With further discussion, the county decided to
have Pennington County bill each fire department
individually for the reprogramming of their fire de-
partment radios.
The Jackson County Hazard Mitigation Plan was
also reviewed by the commissioners. Discussion was
held about the plan. The county voted to adopt the
Jackson County Hazard Mitigation Plan.
As listed on the agenda, road matters discussed
included the contract for the Addison gravel pit, the
equipment agreement with Kennedy Implement for
county tractors, bridge replacement within Jackson
County and the ongoing discussion with Minute
Man Missile Historical Site.
In personnel matters, the county accepted the
resignation of the Deputy Auditor and hired
Latasha Buchholz to fill the position of Deputy Au-
ditor on a temporary basis.
Jackson County Director of Equalization, Rose
Bennett, has completed her probationary period.
The commissioners moved to approved a pay in-
crease for Bennett.
One topic that will be discussed at the next com-
missioners meeting will be formally adopting an as-
sessment plan for Jackson County.
With their being no further discussion the Jack-
son County Commissioners adjourned the meeting
The next meeting will be Monday, August 12 at 9
a.m. at the Jackson County Courthouse.
The City of Kadoka South Dakota, Planning and

This year’s Haakon/Jackson
County Fair and Achievements
Days honorees are Orville and
Shirley Josserand for Jackson
County and Grossenburg Imple-
ment for Haakon County.
Orville and
Shirley Josserand
Orville Josserand belonged to 4-
H clubs in Kansas and has been
involved with 4-H clubs for many
years. He has also worked with 4-
H clubs in Colorado and South
Dakota. Josserand has also served
in a variety of community posi-
tions. He has served as a county
commissioner, a member of the
South Dakota School Board and in
various positions as a community
volunteer.
Shirley Josserand has been in-
volved with 4-H since she began
attending meetings in Colorado at
the age of 10. Both were active in
the South Creek 4-H Club, which
was led by Russ and Eunice
Hicks. They both served as volun-
teer helpers while their own girls
were involved in 4-H. They also
assisted other 4-H club kids and
have been strong supporters of 4-
H every since they were members
themselves.
S. Josserand is a homemaker
and has also taught Sunday
school and release time for many
years. She also has helped to
make quilts for abused children at
the Children’s Home near Rock-
erville.
The Josserands have been farm-
ers and ranchers all of their lives
and have been married for 64
years this October. They feel that
they have been blessed to live in
the greatest community and coun-
try in the world.
Grossenburg Implement
Grossenburg Implement was
founded in 1937 by Charlie and
Blanche Grossenburg. Grossen-
burg was born near Rock Valley,
Iowa. At the age of 20, he came to
Tripp County. Jessie Blanche De
Bolt was born near Stuart, Neb.,
in 1905. She settled later in
Presho and taught school for three
years near Kennebec and Hamill.
They met near Hamill and were
later married on August 24, 1926.
Grossenburg had a passion for
selling and trading cattle and
hogs. He would bring cattle to
Sioux Falls and Omaha for sale,
and later around 1937 found an
opportunity in bringing tractors to
the Tripp County area.
During World War II the mar-
ket for two cylinder tractors was
on the rise and this is what
started the foundation of Grossen-
burg Implement. As a friend at
Deere and Company put it, “Char-
lie possessed the American secret
of making things work, and simul-
taneously exploiting them. That
spells service, and a way of selling
it to the customer.”
Barry Ross Grossenburg is the
son of Gene and LaWayna
Grossenburg. B. Grossenburg
graduated from Winner High
School in 1974, and later from
South Dakota State University in
Brookings in 1978 with a bache-
lors in science in agri-business. He
married Marilyn LaCompte on
July 21, 1978. M. Grossenburg is
the owner of Rosebud Concrete at
Grossenburg Imp. B. Grossenburg
was always involved in the imple-
ment business since he was a little
boy. In his own words, “I was born,
raised, and will die, an implement
dealer.” B. Grossenburg is now the
president of Grossenburg Imple-
ment.
The Grossenburg family are
strong supporters of 4-H in all of
the communities where they have
established dealerships. They
have the Grossenburg Implement
and Employees 4-H Support Fund
in Haakon/Jackson Counties, and
each year the Haakon/Jackson 4-
H Council receives a very gener-
ous check to help support the 4-H
programming in our area. Their
continued support and interest of
the 4-H programming in our com-
munities is very appreciated by
the Haakon/Jackson 4-H Club
members and leaders.

Strenght and Fear
Fear is contagious. Let one old
cow get spooked about something,
and, in no time at all, the whole
herd can be in headlong flight
down a hill or off to the far corner
of the pasture. Woe betide any-
thing or anyone that gets in the
way. This little scenario was a
common occurrence when four-
wheelers were just starting to be
used. Cows were used to pickups
and paid them little attention ex-
cept when they brought food of
some sort. Noisy four-wheelers,
though, were highly suspect at
first and could easily cause a
stampede.
You see a similar thing with
weaned calves in the fall. These
little guys are pretty nervous any-
way since they’ve just been sepa-
rated from their mamas for the
first time. Fortunately, they do
soon get accustomed to their care-
giver since he or she brings them
food and they like that pretty well.
If that caregiver is normally
dressed in green coveralls with a
red cap, then that outfit is what is
expected. If the same person
comes dressed in jeans, plaid
shirt, and blue cap, uneasiness
may be seen. If the nervousness
gets bad enough, the fences may
be in danger of being trampled
down by panicked calves, and this
can result in critters being every-
where and not wanting to be gath-
ered back into the corral.
This panic thing even happens
with people who really should
have better sense. You’ve probably
heard of a ballgame or concert
where something scary happened
and everyone bolted for the door.
In the process, some folks got
knocked down and trampled and
maybe even killed. Fear is the
driving force in this case with herd
instinct giving a helping hand. As
a result, avoiding crowds alto-
gether is the best thing to do, or it
is according to someone like me
who has lived too long on a hill in
the middle of nowhere. Open
spaces don’t make me nervous, but
crowds just might.
Nervous fidgets are also conta-
gious. If someone is constantly in
a sweat about every little thing,
your nerves are apt to suffer in the
process. You might decide a desert
island sounds fairly attractive in
comparison to being around a fuss
budget.
In my case, it seems, fear isn’t
necessarily contagious if what is
upsetting someone is not scary to
me. I’ve seen people go into a com-
plete panic when a little garter
snake goes by. Garter snakes don’t
worry me in the least, and I’m not
apt to go running off into the dis-
tance upon seeing one, even if
someone else does. A rattlesnake
too close for comfort might be an-
other story, but my reaction in
that case is to quickly look around
for any weapon I can use to do the
sucker in. A hoe is my weapon of
choice, but sticks and stones will
suffice if nothing else is at hand.
Cowboys find that their ropes will
work okay if used somewhat like a
whip. There is some concern that
fangs will get embedded in the
rope and cause a second-hand
means of poison transfer, but
ropes might still be used and just
inspected closely before being put
back into use.
Besides scary things like dan-
gerous critters, bad storms, unex-
pected explosions etc., there are
other things that create fear. One
is a feeling of inadequacy. There
may be something we want to do
but aren’t sure we’re capable of ac-
complishing. This can apply to
taking a test, speaking, singing or
playing an instrument in public,
fighting an addiction, or even
making repairs to something or
other. We might feel inadequate
and not up to the job. If we let fear
take over, we might simply give up
and not try. As a result, some-
times we have to work pretty hard
at conquering our fears.
We see this even happen to
Joshua in the Bible. He had taken
over from Moses and was sup-
posed to be leading the Israelites
into the Promised Land. This was
a daunting task since the Prom-
ised Land was not vacant but in-
habited by strong people who
didn’t want to leave. As a result,
God repeatedly instructed Joshua
to be strong and courageous. Eas-
ier said then done, right? Well, not
so much if you listen to the rest of
God’s message which was, “For I
will be with you. I am your
strength.”
So there you have it, the anti-
dote to fear is trust in God and his
care of us. He will be with us and
He is our strength. In other words,
“I can do all things through Christ
who strengthens me.” Now if we
can just remember to keep that in
mind. Let’s give it a try.
A Walk Down the Aisle
August marks a season of
change and an important mile-
stone in the life of our family. This
month our youngest daughter
Larissa will marry Scott Hargens
in Sioux Falls. I always knew this
day would come; it just seems to
have come sooner than I expected.
It’s not them, it’s me. They’re of
age, Larissa is 23 and Scott is 27,
and they’ve been engaged for al-
most a year so I know they are
ready. It’s just that when it’s your
little girl walking down the aisle,
I’m not sure that as a dad you’re
ever really ready. In fact, I’d be
willing to bet few dads can say it’s
not a little bittersweet.
You see, I was there in the de-
livery room when my wife, Kim-
berley, gave birth to Larissa in
January of 1990. And ever since
that little blond-haired, blue-eyed
baby entered the world, she’s been
my little girl.
I was the guy there for the
hoops games and soccer matches,
for the track meets and piano
recitals, for the joy of victory and
the pain of disappointment. I
helped her learn how to swim, how
to ride a bike, and how to shoot
straight. I listened to her memo-
rize Bible verses and say her bed-
time prayers. I saw her love for all
things living, including frogs and
snakes, and I laughed at her quick
wit.
She, of course, helped carry me
through seven campaigns, sat pa-
tiently through countless Lincoln
Day dinners, picnics, fairs, and
bus rides, not to mention appear-
ing in numerous campaign ads de-
spite her eternal shyness. And I
know how hard it was on her
when my job required me to miss
some of her special moments. But
for 23-plus years, through thick
and thin, she’s been my little L.T.
This August, she officially be-
comes Scott’s girl. And despite the
customary fatherly apprehension,
I’m okay with that. Scott is a solid
young man from good stock, he’ll
take good care of her, and she’ll be
a good wife. After all, she learned
from her mom. There will be hard
times ahead, it’s part of life, but
they’re built on a strong founda-
tion.
As for me, I don’t think I would
have it any other way. It’s the nor-
mal order of things, God’s plan for
our lives. Still, as I share that
final dance with my daughter, be-
fore I hand her off to her new hus-
band, I will think about how
blessed my life has been because
of her and how grateful I am that
even as she begins her new life,
she will always be my little L.T..

Working Toward a
More Efficient and
Effective Government
In recent months, there has
been a common theme in Wash-
ington. Government agencies have
abused their power, imposed un-
necessary regulations and wasted
millions in taxpayer dollars. With
a growing list of abuses by federal
agencies, South Dakotans are rap-
idly losing trust in their govern-
ment.
Here in the House, we decided
it was time to act. We designated
July 29 – August 2 as “Stop Gov-
ernment Abuse Week.” We de-
bated and passed a handful of bills
that limit the power of federal
agencies and instead empower in-
dividuals.
Each year, federal agencies
issue hundreds of regulations –
regulations which go into effect
without ever receiving a vote or
fair debate in Congress. In fact, a
study by the Small Business Ad-
ministration found that annual
regulatory compliance costs in the
United States hit $1.75 trillion in
2008. Too often, major decisions
are made by unelected, unaccount-
able bureaucrats who fail to un-
derstand how a regulation will im-
pact families and businesses in
South Dakota.
This is why the House passed
the Regulations from the Execu-
tive in Need of Scrutiny (REINS)
Act this week. The REINS Act,
which I was proud to cosponsor, is
a common-sense bill that requires
Congress to take an up-or-down
vote on all new major rules with
an annual economic impact of
$100 million or more before they
can be enforced.
Small business owners and
families are facing difficult deci-
sions because of Obamacare and
many are surprised to know the
IRS is responsible for implement-
ing over 50 different aspects of the
President’s health care law. This
agency is already in trouble with
Congress, and the American peo-
ple, for its inappropriate and ille-
gal targeting of political groups. I
find it troubling that this same
agency would enforce the disas-
trous health care law, one of the
most expansive and expensive
laws ever passed. I also voted for
the “Keep the IRS off Your Health
Care Act.” This bill prohibits the
IRS from implementing any por-
tion of Obamacare.
I’ve heard from many South
Dakotans who believe the federal
government is out of touch – and
stories of lavish and expensive em-
ployee conferences only further
damage the government’s credibil-
ity. Last year, the General Serv-
ices Administration spent
$820,000 on a single conference in
Las Vegas! In response, the House
passed the Government Spending
Accountability Act of 2013. The
purpose of the bill is simple. It re-
quires that federal agencies pub-
licly post detailed information
about conferences and also limits
the amount agencies can spend on
a single conference. I believe this
bill is an important step in encour-
aging transparency and accounta-
bility.
The increasing size and role of
bureaucracy is costly and further
erodes the trust of the American
people. This week was an impor-
tant step in tipping the power
back to the people and I was proud
to vote for legislation that will re-
store balance in the government
and save taxpayer dollars. I’d like
to hear your opinions on legisla-
tion passed as part of “Stop Gov-
ernment Abuse Week,” and would
encourage you to contact one of my
offices to share your thoughts and
concerns.

Commonsense
Immigration Reform:
Pro-Growth and
Pro-Agriculture
A report released this week by
the White House economic team
shows the benefits of common-
sense immigration reform for
rural America.
Earlier this year, the U.S. Sen-
ate passed a commonsense immi-
gration reform measure in a
strongly bipartisan fashion. The
Senate plan provides a pathway to
earned citizenship for those who
are in our country without author-
ization. They will have to go to the
back of the line, pay fines and set-
tle taxes they owe our nation. It
would also put in place the tough-
est border security plan that
America has ever seen.
This bill is important for rural
America. Our farmers and ranch-
ers are the most productive on
earth, but too many are struggling
to hire the workers they need. A
broken immigration system cre-
ates uncertainty for farmers and
farm workers alike, threatening
our ability to produce and export
more in the coming years. The re-
port released by the White House
economic team shows that without
a stable workforce, America’s
record agricultural productivity
will decline in coming years.
The Senate bill addresses this
concern by taking much-needed
steps to ensure a stable agricul-
tural workforce, and a fair system
for U.S. producers and farm work-
ers. In particular, it would give
qualifying farm workers an expe-
dited path to earned citizenship,
as long as they continue to work in
agriculture. A new temporary
worker program would replace the
current H-2A visa program over
time, and allow farm workers a
three-year visa to work year-
round in any agricultural job.
This commonsense system
wouldn’t just prevent a decline in
production – it would grow the
economy. Research highlighted in
the White House report projects
that an expanded temporary
worker program would increase
both production and exports
across our agriculture sector. In
the coming years, this would gen-
erate billions of dollars in eco-
nomic benefits for our nation and
create tens of thousands of new
jobs.
Meanwhile, fixing our broken
immigration system would
strengthen our nation’s finances.
The non-partisan Congressional
Budget Office found that the Sen-
ate bill would reduce the deficit
over the next 20 years by nearly
$850 billion, and the Social Secu-
rity Administration estimates that
this immigration bill would add
nearly $300 billion to the Social
Security system in the next
decade.
This week’s White House report
lays out the many benefits for
rural America of immigration re-
form – from a stable workforce for
agriculture, to stronger exports
and more good jobs in our small
towns.
To remain competitive and keep
driving economic growth in rural
America, we need rules that work.
Rural America needs Congress to
act as soon as possible to carry for-
ward the work of the U.S. Senate
and fix today's broken immigra-
tion system.

Your questions,
our answers
Q: An accident injury prevents
me from returning to work. Can I
get Social Security disability?
A: Filing an application is the
only way to receive a formal deci-
sion. While inability to return to
previous work is part of the re-
quirements, the Social Security
medical decision includes much
more. In general, in addition to
the work requirement, to be found
disabled under Social Security
rules you cannot do the work that
you did before, you cannot adjust
to other work because of your
medical conditions, and your dis-
ability has lasted or is expected to
last for at least one year or to re-
sult in death. Age, work experi-
ence and education are considered
in the decision. Learn about So-
cial Security disability, or file an
application online, at
http://www.socialsecurity.gov/pgm/
disability.htm.
Did you know? On August 14,
1935, 78 years ago, the Social Se-
curity Act became law when Pres-
ident Franklin D. Roosevelt
signed H.R. 7260, Public Law No.
271. The Social Security Act of
1935 included much more than
what we now think of as Social Se-
curity. The Act also included un-
employment insurance, old-age
assistance, aid to dependent chil-
dren and grants to the states to
provide various forms of medical
care.
What we think of as Social Se-
curity is only Title II (Federal Old-
Age Benefits) of the Act. Since
1935, Title II of the Social Security
Act has evolved into the three So-
cial Security programs of today,
known as OASDI for Old Age (Re-
tirement), Survivors and Disabil-
ity Insurance. Nationally as of
December 2012, approximately
18.1 percent of the United States
population receives a monthly
SSA benefit of some type. About
17.5 percent of the North Dakota
population receives Social Secu-
rity, 17.2 percent in Minnesota,
and 19.1 percent in South Dakota.

Security Act and the evolution of
Social Security is at http://www.so-
cialsecurity.gov/history/.

Coping with expensive
kids extracurricular
activities
When budgeting for back-to-
school expenses, parents generally
include routine fare like clothes,
school supplies and maybe a new
backpack. But if your kids partici-
pate in extracurricular activities,
whether it's sports, music lessons
or art classes, you could be on the
hook for hundreds – or even thou-
sands – of dollars in additional ex-
penses throughout the year if
you're not careful.
As parents, we hesitate to stifle
our children's athletic and creative
urges, especially when it can be so
difficult to drag them away from
their iPods and Xboxes. But some-
times you've just got to step back,
weigh the different options avail-
able and decide what you can af-
ford without upsetting your other
financial goals and responsibili-
ties.
You'll face tough questions like,
"Is it better for my child's future to
spend $500 on a soccer day camp
he'll really enjoy or to invest the
money in a 529 College Savings
Plan?"
My wife and I commonly wres-
tle with these types of questions.
For example, last fall our son had
outgrown his baseball equipment
and was begging us for a new bat
that cost $125. A year later, it sits
on the sidelines because he prefers
to use a friend's bat. (We're not
complete pushovers, however:
When he recently obsessed over a
$200 pair of high-tech gym shoes,
we said no.)
Among the best advice I've re-
ceived from other parents is, when
your kids are exploring new activ-
ities, don't overcommit your time
or money until you know whether
they'll stick with it or quickly
move on to the next thing.
For example, before you sink a
small fortune into private swim-
ming lessons, start small with a
summer class at your local Y or
recreation center. If your kid
shows a genuine aptitude and
doesn't balk at long hours of prac-
tice, then you can explore more
costly alternatives. Just remem-
ber who'll be driving to practice
and out-of-town swim meets; in
other words, make sure you can
honor the time commitment before
signing on.
Here are a few tips for prioritiz-
ing extracurricular events and
keeping your costs down:
•Focus on one sport or activity
per kid, per season, especially if
they involve multiple practice ses-
sions or games per week.
•Form carpools with other par-
ents. You'll save gas money and
time, especially if your kids are
practicing at different locations.
•Learn how much equipment
and instruction the sport requires.
Some, like soccer and basketball
can be relatively inexpensive;
while others, like horseback rid-
ing, golf and ice skating involve
expensive equipment or facility
rental time.
•Rent or buy used sporting
equipment (or musical instru-
ments) until you're sure they'll
stick with the activity.
•Seek out or form a sports
equipment exchange in your com-
munity where families can donate
outgrown or cast-off equipment
and uniforms for others to use.
It's probably better to invest in
new safety gear, like helmets and
masks, than to buy it used – and
potentially damaged. The same
goes for items like shoes or base-
ball gloves that become molded to
a child's body – unless they were
hardly used.
Sometimes the cost of an elec-
tive program is worth making sac-
rifices elsewhere in your budget.
Our daughter loves theater arts,
so we decided it was worth shav-
ing our vacation budget to send
her to theater camp. She'll make
new friends and hone her dra-
matic and social skills in an envi-
ronment that public school just
can't duplicate.

“The LORD gave and the
LORD has taken away,
may the name of the LORD be
praised.” Job 1:21
This has been a bittersweet
week for folks in this area after
the Tuesday night storm. The one
thing I hate about being a corre-
spondent for the paper is reporting
the misfortunes of people, but in
this case it is part of the job. I will
never understand why bad things
happen to good people, but they
do. About 6 p.m. on July 30 a thun-
derstorm hit our area with a
vengeance with 70 mile an hour
winds, hail (of different dimen-
sions) and lots of rain. We have
heard and seen lots of damage like
bales relocated, unrolled, messed
up standing beside those that
seem untouched. A roof was blown
off of a home right here in town.
Gardens and crops damaged and
grain bins blown away. Those driv-
ing and cars parked outside were
severely damaged. Windshields
took a terrible hit and some folks
hurt from flying glass. Homes suf-
fered roof and siding damage espe-
cially from the north and east and
of course broken windows. One
thing about a storm like this, we
are not alone; everyone has their
own story, but no lives were lost,
just things. With God’s help we
will make it, we are in this to-
gether whether you live miles
away to the north or the south of
us- we will all remember the sum-
mer storm of 2013. The total of
rain was immeasurable on Tues-
day for the most part but we had
two inches in the gauge, the fields
were flooded, ditches full and the
creek is running. Wednesday, we
had a day of recovering and drying
out – the tree damage has been ex-
tensive, the guys hauled four
pickup loads of branches from
town. We received another half-
an-inch of moisture on Thursday.
Friday the clouds built up again,
the lightning flashed, the thunder
rolled and we suddenly received
another two inches of rain. Satur-
day we received another quarter of
an inch! I dare say we got five
inches of rain last week and others
not too far away to the east got
even more! The strange thing is
that the Berrys, Merchens and Al-
lards received the wind and less
rain and knew nothing of the
storm damage that was happening
just north and east of them.
Storms like this only make us
thankful that we live in good ole
South Dakota where we really do
care what happens to our commu-
nity and friends and neighbors.
The James Letelliers met up
with their daughters and their
families at Oahe Downstream
State Park near Pierre on Monday
afternoon and enjoyed camping
overnight. The Jason Burmas also
joined the bunch from Norris
along with Samuel Pedersen of
Sunshine Bible Academy. Marty
and Sue Larson of Rapid City and
Julie Letellier of Kilgore, Paul and
LuAnne Beckwith, Erica, Andrea,
DJ, and Cassie of Pierre helped
round out the group. Paul enjoyed
showing us some of the work that
has been done to repair the dam-
age since the 2011 flood. We had
no idea we would go home to a
flood of our own! We did enjoy fish-
ing, kayaking, lots of food, fun and
foolishness. The group returned to
their respective homes on Tuesday
evening. After our storm and we
surveyed the damages done Julie
left for her home in Kilgore and
had to turn around and go around
due to water running over the road
and a road block near Rosebud.
She came again on Wednesday
and headed home Friday morning
and had to drive through water
running over Highway 63, a little
past Tafts when we received an
additional two inches of rain.
Ken Koistensen of Pierre, his
son, Kelly, and grandson, Kody, of
Spearfish came to Maxine Allard’s
this week and helped trim up the
damaged trees in her yard. The
threesome also enjoyed hunting a
few prairie dogs while here.
Get well wishes go out this
week to Bruce Ring who is recov-
ering from an emergency appen-
dectomy operation in Rapid City
on Wednesday. June Ring caught
a ride to Rapid City with Torey
and Jeremy Ring in order to keep
an early appointment. Bruce came
later with Stephanie and the
twins, Matt and Mike, to meet
their mother’s plane coming in
from Texas. Rachel spent a few
days at home helping out at
Bruce’s before she and twins flew
back to Texas on Saturday.
Ed and Carol Ferguson were in
Winner on Wednesday on busi-
ness. They also took several pieces
of furniture down to their grand-
daughter, Kaitlyn, who lives there.
Wednesday, Tafts (like everyone
else) drove around accessing the
storm damages. They suffered
damages to an out building when
a tree fell on it, beside other field
damages, etc.
Robert and Sharon Ring made a
trip to Valentine on Thursday.
Friday, Evan and Dorothy Bligh
made a trip to Rapid City for an
appointment and supplies. Satur-
day they were among those at-
tending the memorial services for
Bobby Peck in Martin.
Richard Charging Hawk has
been busy both playing and coach-
ing ball teams at the Pine Ridge
Fair this week. Monday the 10-12
year olds played in the Tony Cross
Memorial Baseball Tournament
and won which meant they re-
turned the next day to play five
more games. Jason Burma, Beaver
and Jade came home from Pierre
and headed to Pine Ridge to play
ball. The kids played the Hurri-
canes, Cardinals, and the Sioux
teams from Pine Ridge. They
played ball all night and by 4:30
a.m. they found themselves in the
championship! After a rain delay
and switching ends of the field
from infield to outfield; the Black-
pipe lost to the Tony’s Tigers with
a score of 6-1 and headed for home
at 6:00 a.m. Beaver said, “These
are the games you remember all
your life.” We had to laugh, when
the next day we saw an ad on TV
for Alaska the land of midnight
baseball, they don’t have anything
on us.
Wednesday and Thursday, the
team returned to Pine Ridge to
play in the Hurricane Classic
Tournament with the Boston
Sioux, Hurricanes and the All
Stars. Blackpipe team placed
third winning the last game
against the All Stars team 16-1.
Members of the team were: Josh
Morrison, Tahj White Hat, Bri-
anna, Gracie and Richard, Jr.
Charging Hawk, Tavern and
Brian Jr. Hart, Peja Cook, Travis
Moran, Beaver and Jade Burma.
Julie Letellier of Kilgore was
among those attending the game
on Thursday.
Richard Charging Hawk also
pitched for the Red Leaf Team in
the fast pitch tourney at Pine
Ridge this week, too. Red Leaf
played six games of softball on
Sunday. They had to play Rocky
Ford twice to be in the champi-
onship game because it was double
elimination games and Rocky Ford
hadn’t been defeated. They beat
Rocky Ford 3-2 the first game and
lost the second 5-0. So Red Leaf
came home with second place. The
Red Leaf team members are: Vine
Morsette, Bob, Dale, Oscar Mar-
tin, Delane Has No Horse, Bran-
don Watson, Dusty Old Lodge,
Dalen High Wolf, Wayne Cortier,
Woody Willcuts, Buzz, Rich and
Vinnie Charging Hawk.
Friday, Dan, Susan and Morgan
Taft were in Rapid City for sup-
plies and appointments. They vis-
ited at Samantha’s long enough to
leave Morgan. The gals plan to
take in some of the rally events.
The Jason Burma family enjoy
attending church at Okaton on
Sunday. The speakers were Andy
and Kristy Smart of India. Kristie
and JaLynn were college friends at
SDSU. Monday, JaLynn Burma
and Jakki and Jimmy had hosted
Kristy Smart and Kerry Pickard of
Russia in her home at Sunshine
Bible Academy.
I am beginning to know how
Noah’s wife felt, we got another
half-inch of rain this morning
(Monday)! Not complaining we are
grateful for rain anytime in this
country. Have a great week!
Deb and Marv Moor spent the
weekend of July 27-28 in Pierre.
Most of her sisters were also there
to help with some organization of
things at the home of their father,
Hank Kosters. They spent Sunday
with their son, Mitch, before re-
turning home.
Kadoka and Philip are cleaning
up after a hail storm hit the area
last Tuesday, July 30. Insurance
adjusters have been busy looking
at broken windows, roofs and
dents in vehicles. One couple also
reported that one insurance com-
pany call was a scam, and luckily
they realized it before doing busi-
ness with him. It seems scammers
follow storm damages and people
must be on the lookout for them.
The local area has had many nice
rain showers recently and South
Dakota is beautifully green.
Nick and Rhonda Willert and
children, Trinity and Robert
James, have been recent visitors
in the Kadoka and Belvidere area.
They visited with grandparents,
Oliver Willert and Joyce Hicks, on
Wednesday. Thursday Joyce went
with them to Deadwood where
they visited in the home of Larry
Hicks. They are introducing
Robert James to their South
Dakota relatives, as he is their re-
cently newborn son. The Willerts
live in Aurora, CO.
Holly Plaggemeyer and friend,
Greg Hansen, of Brookings spent
part of Saturday and Sunday at
the home of her parents, Jim and
Venessa Plaggemeyer. They drove
to Cedar Pass, through the Bad-
lands and to Wall on Saturday and
returned to Brookings Sunday af-
ternoon. Both are students at
South Dakota State University in
Brookings and Holly has been at-
tending summer classes and work-
ing at a local nursing home there.
Wanda Swan and her daughter
and husband, Dave and Betty Ras-
mussen, returned to Kadoka on
Friday after a two-week trip to
Dayton, OR, where they attended
a Swan family reunion. They vis-
ited many states along the way
and commented that Montana is a
long state to travel across. Betty
and Dave left for their home in
Broken Arrow, OK, Tuesday.
Thesa Ireland had lots of com-
pany over the weekend including
son, Terry, and friend, Chris, of
Sioux Falls who arrived on Friday.
He was best man at the wedding
of JR Smith while here. Audra
Moran and children of Mitchell ar-
rived on Saturday for the day, as
did John Krause and Geona
Clements of Estelline who left for
home on Sunday. Other Saturday
dinner guests included Christina
Clements and Bayden, Holly
Clements, and Addie Ireland of
Alaska who is here for a few weeks
visiting her father, Henry.
Katie, Stacia, Shelby and
Rachel Schoon of Brandon arrived
in Kadoka on Sunday and are vis-
iting at the home of their grand-
parents, Pat and Boyd Porch. A
couple of the girls are helping at
the annual Badlands Rodeo Bible
Camp at the rodeo grounds in
Kadoka. They will leave for home
after the camp ends on Thursday
evening.
Michael and Sarah McCubbin
and family of Norton, OH, arrived
in Kadoka late Thursday evening
and will spend a week or so visit-
ing at the home of his parents,
Ruth and Gary McCubbin. Gary
and Ruth recently returned from a
vacation in Hawaii but said they
left a couple days early and missed
the hurricane that hit the islands
a day after they left for home.
Myrth and Frank Bauman and
seven of their eight children were
able to meet last weekend for a
family reunion. Meeting at the
beautiful Moreau River Sanctuary
north of Dupree were Jo (Gene)
Christensen, Dave (Sandi) Bau-
man, Carl (Susie) Bauman, Vicki
(John) Healy, Susan (Dean) Smith,
John Bauman, and Scott (Marty)
Bauman. Larry Bauman and his
wife, Angel, and John’s wife, Judy,
were unable to attend. Joining
them on Saturday were a few of
the grandchildren and great
grandchildren. Saturday evening
was a time of singing and showing
some very old home movies. After
brunch on Sunday morning a time
of sharing was held. Ferris and
Dannete Bauman told of their up-
coming trip to Uganda. Everyone
had a wonderful time and it was a
beautiful place to meet.
This correspondent waited for
company on Saturday – a class-
mate and three friends of my son,
Mark, were to stop on the way
from Ohio to the Sturgis Rally. No
one stopped and then I learned an
Ohio woman was killed by Elk
Point when she ran into a tire on
the interstate and her husband
was injured. They were traveling
with our friend, Zoe Pearce-West,
and her boyfriend and were from
Luckey, Ohio, which is near where
we used to live in Elmore. Zoe and
her friend arrived back in Elmore
Monday and funeral services are
pending for her friend. The article
that was released said they were
not wearing helmets. How sad.

We started are week off with
several visitors on Sunday.
Elmer Williams got a surprise
visit after his daily walk through
town from his cousin, Bev, and her
husband, Mike. They were passing
through after going to a family re-
union. They were both totally
amazed at all the weight Elmer
has lost and how good he is doing
here. They’ll be back next sum-
mer!
Becca Brinn, Rayna Grimes and
Amanda Reddy were in along with
many other family members this
week to visit Mary Bull Bear.
Mary is slowly recovering from her
fall. She’s been going with us on
our team walk in her chair. She
loves the outdoors and all the
beautiful flowers and can’t wait for
the apples on the tree. We have
plans for picking, peeling, baking
and eating some terrific apple pie
ala-modes!
Joy Parker is always a popular
lady. Ron and Renate Carson and
Wilma Carleton stop by daily to
check on her. Oliver and Gayle
Carson also drove down from Wall
for a visit. Thank God she is
healthy and out each day for her
team walk, too. Keep up the good
work.
As noted Betty Kusick dropped
in and visited Bunny Green. You’re
a great friend, keep coming back
and by the way how’s the fishing
been going, we’d all love to hear a
fishing story or two!
Wow, what a week for visitors
for Elaine Kemnitz. Stopping in to
see their mother were Rob and
Lori Etrheim, Scott and Linette
Christensen and her husband,
Don. Elaine’s son stops almost
every Monday morning to visit
with his mom. Sometime she’s
sleeping, but we try our best to get
her to come down to join in to sing
hymns on Monday mornings as
she has a beautiful voice!
Arlyss Klundt and friend came
down to see his mom, Ruth
Klundt. They had a good visit.
Phyllis and Sydney Word and
her friend was in to visit with
Micki Word. She seems to get
quite a few visitors and that is
what I love to see!
Dwight Louder had a visit from
his wife, Dorothy, and his son,
Brad. Sounds like everything is
going good.
Hal and Edie Ireland were
down from Rapid City to see his
dad, Shorty Ireland. Edie has been
helping me set up a trip for the
residents. We are planning a trip
to the 1880 Train. It may cost us a
little money, but it’s something the
residents would like to do and I
am doing my best to see that the
trip will be possible for those who
would like to go.
We really appreciate the regu-
lar visitors and friends who stop
in. It truly does make a difference
in one’s life if they get to talk and
see someone from outside the
home. Many of our residents only
have the visitors that stop by, so
please continue to make someone’s
day by just stopping in and hold-
ing one’s hand or maybe a hug or
smile.
Shirley Josserand, Lucy Free-
man, and Debbie Falone were in to
see Clara Belle Weller this week.
Clara Belle is Lucy and Shirley
Josserand’s sister and Debbie is
Clara Belle’s neice. They had a
real good visit.
Alice Wilmarth got a surprise
visit from Paulette Wilmarth and
quite a few of the grandkids on
Saturday. They filled up the entire
room! Good to have you stop by.
Reverend Ray Greenseth and
Colleen were in on Sunday after-
noon to visit with Mary Ellen
Herbaugh and Melford Koester.
Rev. Gary McCubbin lead serv-
ices this Sunday for all the resi-
dents.
We sure apreciated all the items
donated for the annual rummage
sale. All funds raised will be used
for activities for the residents. It
was very successful and we are
grateful to you all!
Upcoming Events: Sunday, Au-
gust 11 Family/Resident BBQ and
Carnival. BBQ starts at noon and
the Carnival will start at 1:30 p.m.
to 4:00 p.m.
Cake donatations for the cake
walk are welcome. If you would
like to donate, please bring them
to the kitchen before 1:30.
Wow! We have already lost our
new resident, Tammy. She has been
moving out this past week. She and
her friend packed the car full, and
left Friday afternoon. I enjoyed a
nice visit with her out on the bench.
She said she had been offered a job
at Buffalo that she just could not
turn down.
We are sorry to see her go and
besides empty rooms are building
up. I still think we need to develop
a more friendly, welcoming atmos-
phere.
I accompanied Chris and Ani-
talyn Riggins to Rapid City to keep
an eye appointment with Dr.
Wright on July 31. I got great news,
bearing no complications, I do not
have to go for my checkup again for
six months. Dr. Wright did my
cataract and my cornea surgeries.
I missed the quilters again be-
cause of the Wednesday appoint-
ment. Without them, news can be
quite scarce.
Bonnie (Wayne) Riggins was re-
leased from the Golden Living Cen-
ter of the Black Hills in Rapid City
and her daughter brought her back
to her apartment. Friday Bonnie
accompanied her daughter, Ella
Hindman, and her husband, Troy,
to Creighton to attend the wedding
ceremony for her granddaughter,
Samantha Nelson, and Dustin
Christensen at the Creighton
Church north of Wall. Samantha is
the daugther of Dan and Marla
Nelson.
Following the beautiful cere-
mony the wedding party and guests
drove back to the community center
in Wall for the reception. Everyone
enjoyed a delicious meal and wed-
ding cake for the reception and
dance that followed.
I accompanied Stephen and
Linda Riggins, Trena and Nathan
to the wedding. Later, I accompa-
nied Nancy Totton and Cloreta
Eisenbraun back to Kadoka.
Sunday evening, I drove out to
my son’s, Kelly, for a get together.
My granddaughter, Fallon Clark,
and her children, Aspen and Em-
marie, of Sioux Falls were back in
this area to visit. Chris and Ani-
talyn and Stanley were there as
well.
Jason of Rapid City was visiting
at his Dad’s. Denise cooked a deli-
cious meal and Kelly grilled the
meat. Fallon and girls spent time
and stayed in the Scott and Diane
Huber home. They left Tuesday
morning to return to Sioux Falls.
We had a little (big) hail storm
last week that did quite a bit of
damage. The hail broke windows,
dented vehicles, destroyed crops
and left a mess for many to clean
up.
I talked to Carol Solon, and she
said they didn’t get a drop from
that storm. She did say they got a
half-inch of rain (no hail) this Mon-
day morning and she was thankful
and thrilled for that. I heard the
thunder and lightening early this
morning.
Though of the week: The best
way to predict the future is to create
it.
Greg Badure reports it sounded
like a constant thunderstorm at
their house on Sunday, but the sky
was clear and it was only all the
motorcycles on the nearby freeway
that were making the racket. Greg
and family only live a few blocks
from the Interstate. Greg also said
he was at the bar briefly on Sun-
day where probably forty to fifty
bikers came through in just a
short time. They took advantage of
the hot-beef special being offered
along with beverages. Dana
Badure, meanwhile, was working
at Discount Fuel in Kadoka where
they had tons of bikers going
through all day. Greg said his
brother, Bax, and family were in
Pierre this weekend. Baxter had
made a saddle with a likeness of
the late Johnny Smith tooled into
the seat. Johnny ran the Ft. Pierre
auction market for many years
and was well known. The saddle
was put into the Casey Tibbs Mu-
seum. There was also an R-Calf
convention in Pierre that was at-
tended by many. The Fox and For-
tune clans often attend these
events. The convention is usually
held west of here like in Rapid
City or Billings, but this year it
was in Pierre. Bax usually makes
a saddle for R-Calf as well that is
raffled off as a fundraiser.
Bax, Carol and Kianna Badure
recently made a trip to the Custer
Battlefield since Bax is a history
buff of such things and enjoys vis-
iting that place from time to time.
They had time to do this since hay-
ing is mostly done now except for
possibly another cutting of alfalfa.
The younger Charlene
Ceniceros encountered trouble this
week when she ran into a horse
with her car. The horse was killed
and Charlene’s car didn’t fare very
well either. The horse belonged to
Frank Carlson and had somehow
escaped its pasture. Frank had
high hopes that the young horse
would grow into a useful animal
due to its breeding and behavior,
but that was not to be.
Betty Kusick was visited by
three sisters of the late Lois
Grimme this week. The gals come
from Mitchell, Iowa, and Ten-
nessee, but try to get together
every year for a sister trip. They
had a good time together remem-
bering old times and such. The sis-
ters also toured Chris Baldwin’s
bee business and visited with him.
Chuck, Eve and Abby Fortune
were visited this weekend by Eve’s
mom, Becky Walker, of Grand
Junction, Colorado. Her husband
brought her about halfway to Ster-
ling, Colorado where Eve and
Abby picked her up. On the way
home, they stopped at the an-
tiques mall at Oglalla, NE, where
Eve said the prices were “tempt-
ingly decent.” Nothing was found
that just had to be purchased, but
they enjoyed looking things over
anyway. On Monday, Eve, Abby
and Becky were headed on a road
trip to visit Becky’s sister in Min-
nesota, Eve’s friend in Iowa, and
then back to Colorado to pick up a
supply of Colorado peaches while
returning Becky to her home.
Brett and Nikki Bonenberger
and kids camped out at one of
their dams this weekend. They
took their camper and enjoyed fish
fried over an open fire and that
sort of thing. They left about 5:00
a.m. however since it was starting
to rain some and Brett didn’t feel
like trying to drive across a muddy
dam grade if they stayed much
longer. Earlier in the week, Nikki,
MaKaylan and McCoy were joined
by Pam Bonenberger and her
granddaughter, Joslin, (Alisha’s
daughter) for a day trip to the out-
door campus of the Game, Fish,
and Parks department in Rapid
City. They have lots of stuffed
wildlife, a stocked pond, walkways
and other things of interest along
with being free. Before returning
home, they all ate in a new Japan-
ese restaurant in Rapid where
your food is cooked right in front of
you. This may involve setting a
fire in the middle of an onion to
cook it, balancing eggs on spatulas
and other interesting actions.
Jerry Sanftner and company
are putting the finishing touches
on the apartment they’ve been
making in the old bank/drug-
store/post office on Main Street.
On Sunday they were finishing the
kitchen counters and installing a
sink. They have a few other things
to do followed by cleanup. They
hope to be done in another week.
Jerry was amused that someone
had asked if any birds had ever
come in the open flu where a gas
stove is going to go. Jerry said they
hadn’t. The next morning, of
course, three birds were in resi-
dence and in a big hurry to get
back out.
Jodie O’Bryan reports that
business has been brisk at 1880
Town with tons of bikers going
through. She thought this might
be the biggest year ever for atten-
dance. In any event, it was a wild
old time at the Diner on Sunday
where Jodie tended the grill con-
stantly from opening at 7:00 AM to
closing. She said they went
through nine gallons of chili, close
to nine dozen eggs, and many,
many pancakes. She said the bik-
ers were all in a good mood. She
also said the return trip for the
bikers sometimes isn’t as happy
due to recent fights, hangovers,
and being close to broke. The trip
there, though, is good natured.
Larry and Joy Dolezal benefited
this week from an accident at
Belle Fourche where a truck car-
rying a bunch of cherries crashed.
The cherries were just given away
since there was no good way to
save them and take them to their
intended destination. Daughter
Carmen Nemec lives at Belle and
got a major supply of cherries
which she shared with her folks.
Russ and Gay Spinsby enjoyed
supper out on Friday evening at
the Steakhouse in Philip. They
met friends Lawrence and Ronda
Schofield of north of Midland and
enjoyed the buffet which is fea-
tured that night. Other than that,
they have been making repairs to
a tractor all week and may have it
back together now so haying can
continue when it is dry enough.
Son Marty came a bit ago to help
with haying, but it rained the
whole week he was here. Son
Casey had come to help for four
days before that, and conditions
were good enough that he could ac-
tually help.

Storm brings heavy rain and large hail, leaves destruction behind
A storm rolled into Jackson County in the afternoon on Tuesday, July 30. Rain and
hail were measured by inches. Above is a picture of hail collected on the east
side of Kadoka, with several county residents reporting tennis ball size hail.
The home of Sauntee and Heidi Coller received a large amount of damage from
the storm. Besides losing windows and siding, furniture within the home was also
damaged from the glass.
The evidence of the July 30 storm in Dan Taft's field of bales south of Norris.
Some bales were completely unrolled, others rolled over the fence into the ditch
and others stood on end while, while some were left untouched. Three tornados
were sighted near Norris that evening, but no reports were received of property
damage.
Hail stones collected from south of Belvidere after the storm.

Project Runway – knowledge of fashion
The fashion judging for Project Runway was based on the entrants’ knowledge of their presented attire and their
poise. The youth could model either constructed or purchased garments. Each contestant had to also describe the
occasions when they plan to wear their outfits. The youth later modeled their clothing on stage for the audience.
Shown, from left, are Shaina Solon, Tagg Weller, Katie Butler, Mallory Vetter, Grace Pekron, Gage Weller and
Savannah Solon.

Read Romans 5:1-11
Grace is God’s goodness and kindness to those who do not deserve it and
cannot earn it. Its benefits are available to everyone.
Each day God causes hearts to beat, bodies to heal, and love to be given
and received, regardless of peoples’ opinions of Him. He offers forgiveness to
the rebellious, freedom to sinners, and personal fellowship with Himself. All
who trust Christ as Savior have access to the throne of grace, where the Sav-
ior serves as high priest, interceding for His own (Heb. 4:16; 7:25). We know
we can approach God confidently because there is no condemnation for those
who belong to Him (Rom. 8:1). What amazing grace!
It wasn’t always so. Israel—God’s chosen people—lived under the Law, not
grace. Because they, like us, were a disobedient people, God in His mercy es-
tablished the sacrificial system to temporarily provide a symbolic way for
them to be forgiven of wrongdoing.
Jesus, however, gives us permanent forgiveness because His death was a
one-time payment-in-full for all sins ever committed—even future ones (7:27).
No mere human could obey every aspect of all 613 divine commandments
handed down through Moses. But Christ fulfilled the Law for us, and grace
makes it count on our behalf. Our Savior sacrificed His life for us, and as a
result, we can approach God’s throne directly.
God’s grace is over us like a canopy and around us like a protective wall.
Let the truth of it permeate your heart and mind, so you can become an ex-
pression of His love, kindness, and goodness to others.

Mary Tieskotter, age 61, passed
away following a brief illness at
St. Elizabeth Hospital in Beau-
mont, TX, on July 28, 2013.
Mary was born on March 11,
1952 in Martin, SD, to Irvine and
Gertrude (Buum) Richardson. She
grew up in Long Valley, SD, and
graduated from Kadoka High
School in 1971 and briefly at-
tended BHSC in Spearfish, SD.
Mary wed Greg Barber in June
of 1969 and they had a baby son
who died shortly after birth. After
her marriage to Greg ended she
decided to be adventurous and in
her travels met a soldier, Dan
Sanders, in Kentucky and they
married and moved to his home-
town of Torrance, CA. Mary and
Dan had a son named Jason in
September 1973. While pregnant
with her second child she moved
to Helena, MT, and Jeremy was
born in Helena in January 1978.
Mary became a single mom and
went back to school at the Helena
Vo-Tech to study computers. While
in Helena she met and married
the love of her life, William (Bill)
Tieskotter, in August of 1980. Bill
worked in the logging industry
and when work became scarce
they decided to move the family
back to Harmony, MN, which was
Bill’s home town in 1981. Bill later
adopted the two boys.
Mary worked for several years
in Decorah, IA, at Rockwell Inter-
national assembling black boxes
for airplanes and Bill started his
own successful excavation busi-
ness. Mary was widowed when
Bill was killed in an automobile
accident in June of 2005. Mary re-
mained in the Harmony area for a
few years before deciding to move
to Kirbyville, TX, to be near Bill’s
niece, Cindy, and her husband
Harry Hargis in 2007. Mary
worked in the home health care
field and was an active member of
the Magnolia Springs United
Methodist Church where she wor-
shiped and served her fellow
parishioners joyfully.
Mary is survived by her sons,
Jason (Valerie) Tieskotter of
Austin, MN, and Jeremy Tieskot-
ter of Steamboat Springs, CO; two
granddaughters, Alexis and Tay-
lar Tieskotter of Minnesota, and
step grandchildren, Jacob and
Kayla Jacobsen also of Minnesota;
her siblings, Carol (Gary) Duval,
Helena, MT; Vernon (Roxy)
Richardson and Reed (Joyce)
Richardson of Long Valley, SD,
and several nephews, nieces and
cousins. She was preceded in
death by her husband, Bill, her
parents, Irvine and Gertrude
Richardson, her brother, Roland,
her baby son, Jamie Ray.
Mary’s legacy will live on in the
many wonderful memories she
created with her family and times
spent in Disneyland, California,
Mexico, Minnesota, Texas and her
most recent adventure, a cruise to
the Caribbean to celebrate Jason
and Val’s wedding. She loved her
grandchildren very much and de-
lighted in being with them. She
loved to travel and see new places
and had a great sense of humor.
She will be missed by all whose
lives she touched.
A memorial service was held at
the Magnolia Springs United
Methodist Church near Kirbyville,
TX, on Friday, August 2, 2013.

Thelma Rada ________________________________
Rumors of being stranded
in the Philippines are
highly exaggerated.
It was my birthday and I de-
cided to celebrate it as low-key as
possible. I am at that stage in life
where I really do not need pres-
ents from anybody reminding me
of how old I really am. I know
every present represents an oblig-
atory return on the gesture and at
my age, I do not have the energy
to return anything.
All I really need is just a
friendly "Happy Birthday." I have
developed a special rule along that
line. For every "Happy Birthday" I
receive, I am allowed one slice of
birthday cake. So far I am on my
19th birthday cake and anticipat-
ing more.
The rule about saying "Happy
Birthday" is that as long as there
is a six-month period either way, it
is still in play. I am looking for-
ward to a lot more "Happy Birth-
day" greetings.
After all, what do you get a per-
son who has had as many birth-
days as I have had that would be
original and surprising? Believe
me, I have enough ties. Of course,
cash is always in good taste.
Throughout the years I have
been known to pull a few surprises
on the Gracious Mistress of the
Parsonage's birthday but nobody
has been able to reciprocate.
That is, until recently.
It was the day of my birthday
when suddenly I began receiving
emails and phone calls and they
all had one theme. Not one of them
was wishing me happy birthday
but all were concerned about an
email they allegedly received from
me.
According to this email, I was in
Manila, Philippines on some mis-
sion trip.
Actually that was not quite un-
usual because several years ago I
did go on such a trip and most of
my friends knew it. Now, accord-
ing to this friendly email being
sent to my friends, I was back in
the Philippines on another mis-
sion trip.
According to this anonymous
friend, I was stranded in the
Philippines. I had been robbed, my
passport had been confiscated, and
I needed money to get out of the
Philippines. No wonder I have
been feeling tired lately!
Of all the birthday presents a
person might receive this one re-
ally beats the birthday cake. I
would not have thought of this in
1 million years.
My email account had been
hacked into and all of my email
contacts were sent what seemed to
be an emergency email. Most of
my friends were relieved to find
out that I was not stranded in the
Philippines.
My Korean publisher actually
was willing to put up money to
rescue me from my situation. Two
other people were trying to find
out how to get money to bail me
out.
The thing that worries me along
this line is of all of my friends only
three were willing to bail me out
financially. I must make a mental
note of this and never get stranded
in the Philippines.
My birthday hacking became a
little more than I at first thought.
At first it was a little joke, ha ha
ha, I am really not in the Philip-
pines. A joke can only go so far. I
thought it was the end of the joke,
but boy, was I in for a wonderful
birthday surprise.
My entire email account had
been compromised and a new
email address was inserted so all
of the response would go to an-
other person. I finally found out
how he changed my account,
changed it back and changed my
password.
All of my emails for the past
month, including important ones
from my publisher and agent,
were lost in the mysterious world
of the Internet. Somewhere in that
mystifying world, my emails are
floating around not knowing
whither to cometh or goeth.
Delving deeper into my birth-
day hacking present I discovered
that although my email contacts
were missing, where I once had
over 600 email contacts, I now had
exactly none. How do you deal
with "none"?
I now do not know who my
friends really are. Their addresses
are gone. How do I contact them?
I am beginning to think this
birthday hacking present is not all
it is hacked up to be.
Now, my post birthday activity
will be salvaging all of those email
contacts. I suppose it is good every
once in a while to start over again.
I guess there is something good
about getting a fresh start in life.
I have often thought of it myself
but never in this context.
I would like to know who my
birthday benefactor really is. I
would like the opportunity to prop-
erly and fully acknowledge and ex-
press to this person my true
feelings about him face-to-face,
and not on Facebook. After all,
"thank you" does not always say it.
I think I now appreciate
Joseph's feelings towards his
brothers who caused him so much
trouble.
"But as for you, ye thought evil
against me; but God meant it unto
good, to bring to pass, as it is this
day, to save much people alive"
(Genesis 50:20 KJV).
I am still looking for the good in
this situation. For one, I am not
stranded in the Philippines with-
out any money. I am at home with-
out money, but that is a different
story.
Although he hacked my email
account, he did not touch my soul.
A rumor can never hurt you if
you really know the truth.

Spud Creek Rodeo
Productions, Dave
and Nate Morrison,
from Interior, SD, will
be bringing the Red
Dirt & Roughstock
Tour to Kadoka on
Friday, August 16 at
7:00 p.m. featuring a
high paced rough-
stock rodeo of bare-
back riding, saddle
bronc riding, and bull
riding. This will be in
place of the Badlands
Match Bronc Riding
that Spud Creek
Rodeo has produced
in previous years on
the same weekend in
Kadoka.
As Nate Morrison
with the Red Dirt &
Roughstock tour ex-
plains it, “South
Dakota is very edu-
cated when it comes
to rodeo events and
they know a good
event when they see
one, and also know a
bad, poorly run event,
when they see one.
They can tell the dif-
ference between good
stock and bad stock,
good rides and bad
rides, and according to the South
Dakota Rodeo Fan... they are
wanting something fresh and new
without all the fluff. Straight up
action where the bucking stock
and rides do the talking so to
speak. We believe we have found
the answer to that call.
“Limiting the event to only 10
Bareback Riders, 10 Bronc Riders,
and 10 Bull Riders with the top 5
from the event advancing to a
Championship Round, we can
present the crowd a high paced,
non-stop action night with 45
rides total that can be done within
two hours without losing the
crowds excitement and attention.
By also limiting to 10/event, I can
assure that the stock and riders
can be of the highest quality mak-
ing the fan going home excited
about the event.”
On top of the Roughstock Rodeo
Action the Red Dirt & Roughstock
Tour is featuring a demonstration
of Rodney Yost's Horsemanship
starting before the show at 6:30
p.m. Rodney's demonstration will
feature "Pepsi" doing some ad-
vanced drills and maneuvers lead-
ing into her great bareback,
bridleless, bullwhip ride as the fi-
nale. He will be talking his way
through the demonstration giving
an explanation of his techniques,
philosophy, and training style. So
it won't simply be entertainment,
and it won't simply be an educa-
tional demonstration... It will be
the perfect combination of both.
Immediately following the high
paced roughstock rodeo action the
Red Dirt & Roughstock Tour will
be introducing "The Bad River
Band" playing Red Dirt & Rodeo
Tunes at the after party at Club 27
in Kadoka. Based out of Philip,
SD, Kenny Feidler is a lyrical ge-
nius when it comes to capturing
the feel of life on the rodeo road,
and along with Clade Schuelke, a
genius on a guitar, combined with
Travis Michelson on bass, and
Nicole Kluck on rhythm guitar.
They have put together "The Bad
River Band" winners of the Texaco
Country Showdown in Lemmon,
SD, in July. Kenny will also be
competing in the bareback riding
during the event, which is what
Red Dirt & Roughstock is all
about. Roughstock Rodeo action
without all the "fluff", and straight
up country music without all the
"pop". Bring your dancing boots...
it's going to be RANK!
Also included in the night of
non-stop roughstock action will be
local trick riding sensation
Christy Willert from Kadoka per-
forming her high paced trick rid-
ing skills and funny man “Stretch”
McKown will be on hand guaran-
teeing laughs that the whole fam-
ily will enjoy.
Kadoka’s event will be the third
stop on the 2013 Red Dirt &
Roughstock Tour as the contest-

A rural transportation input
meeting was held in Philip,
Thursday, August 1.
The public meeting was spon-
sored by River Cities Public Tran-
sit, which is the parent
organization for the Haakon
County Prairie Transportation
Service (HCPT), and by KFH
Group, which is a transit industry
consultation firm out of Maryland.
Similar meetings are being held
across the state in order to create
a government required five-year
coordinated transportation plan.
This plan will help River Cities
Public Transit to meet federal
planning requirements and qual-
ify for funding programs. Results
of the information gathering ses-
sions will be compiled and avail-
able by November.
The Philip audience had repre-
sentation by HCPT board mem-
bers and drivers, the Philip City
Council, local businesses, local
churches and other users of the
transit system.
Gary Hegland, with River
Cities, said that local support is
very important in getting govern-
ment funding. The government
share is around 80 percent, while
the local communities must cost
share the rest.
Fares paid by users of the buses
do not count toward the local
matching funding. In Philip, the
charge for local trips is one dollar
for one way, with a higher charge
for longer trips such as to appoint-
ments in Rapid City.
Hegland said that, sometimes,
when a trip is needed by a Medi-
caid recipient, then that trip does
count toward funding. Otherwise,
donations by individuals, the city,
the county and other groups make
up the local matching funding.
Hegland, when asked by the au-
dience if fares might be raised,
said that was unknown, but so far
nothing like that was in the plan.
Attendees praised the HCPT.
Norm Payne said of its beginning
in 1987, “I was just amazed how it
laid out. In my wildest dreams I
never would have guessed how
much it is used.”
Mary Eide, who was instrumen-
tal in starting the HCPT, said that
the buses are used for many rea-
sons – appointments, grocery
shopping, laundry and outings
such as seeing Christmas lighting.
The drivers were wonderful. “It is
a great asset to our community, for
Philip as well as Kadoka,” she
said.
Kay Ainslie, a driver for HCPT,
said that the number of users of
the buses are constantly growing.
She talked about how students
from Midland coming to Philip
went from eight to 18. She
stressed that the parents, not the
school, pays for the service. She
added that the Catholic church
uses HCPT for Sunday attendees,
and the church makes a donation
to HCPT. The rest of the churches
have not yet asked for Sunday
transportation, though do use the
buses for Wednesday release time
students.
Jack Rush, a HCPT supporter,
said that originally when it was
trying to raise funds, families said
that they didn’t need the service
because they provided transporta-
tion for their older relatives. Now,
those families are very glad the
family members can use HCPT.
Because of the relative independ-
ence offered by HCPT, families are
now able to keep their aging par-
ents in the community, rather
than have to move them to larger
communities.
William Sutton, with KFH, rec-
ognized that the HCPT has a more
problem free program. HCPT does
not use a dispatch service. HCPT
driver Marsha Sumpter said that,
in this area, the driver will knock
on the rider’s door and help them
to the bus. HCPT works on a call-
in or prearranged appointment
method, rather than daily sched-
uled routes. HCPT, through pre-
arrangement, will operate in the
early morning and late evening
hours.
The HCPT drivers would like
riders to firmly insist that their
out of town appointments be
scheduled between 10:00 a.m. and
2:00 p.m.
Sutton agreed that this area
and the HCPT is its own little mi-
crocosm, which functions fairly in-
dependently.
Del Bartels/Pioneer Review
Rural transportation discussion
Board members, drivers, passengers and financial supporters of the Haakon County Prairie Transportation service gave
praise for the HCPT to information gatherers for the government – William Sutton, standing center, with the KFH Group,
and Gary Hegland, standing right, with HCPT’s parent organization River Cities Public Transit. The information will be used
to determine funding. Kadoka drivers who attended the meeting were Marsha Sumptner and Carol Solon.

KADOKA, SD
Out of the nine new South
Dakota Highway Patrol state
troopers recently graduated July
26, two have started duties in the
local Badlands Squad.
Trooper Aric Dierkhising is
based out of Wall. Trooper Ben Fil-
ipiak is based out of Kadoka. Ac-
cording to Jonathan Harms,
public relations officer with the
S.D. Highway Patrol, both
Dierkhising and Filipiak are
under Captain Kevin Karley, dis-
trict commander of the Badlands
Squad. The ranking next goes to
Sergeant Ryan Lance, followed by
Trooper Slade Ross, both in Philip.
“The road to becoming a South
Dakota state trooper is challeng-
ing and competitive. That’s why
we know Trooper Dierkhising and
Trooper Filipiak are talented and
capable law enforcement officers.
They are great additions to the
Badlands Squad.”stated Karley.
Filipiak has always wanted to
be a state trooper. He recalled that
when he was young there was a
traffic control issue in his neigh-
borhood, which was responded to
by a state trooper. After talking
with the officer, Filipiak knew
that was what he wanted to do.
Filipiak finished high school in
Wisconsin in 2004. In 2009, he
moved with his wife back to her
hometown of Aberdeen. His taste
for the highway patrol led to him
to complete basic law enforcement
training in North Dakota. Later,
he completed the stringent re-
quirements at the South Dakota
Highway Patrol Recruit Academy.
From mid-May until graduation,
he was in field training. His pri-
mary field area was Lemmon,
though Filipiak also did field
training in the Sioux Falls and Ab-
erdeen areas.
“I like the small town thing.
Everybody waves. That’s my lik-
ing, I guess,” said Filipiak.
“I thought the training was ex-
cellent. I was very impressed,”
said Filipiak. “There were parts
more difficult than others. It defi-
nitely wasn’t easy, but they were
helpful.” He noted that the physi-
cal training in the morning was
dreaded, but for the most part
that wasn’t too bad either. From
initial application to graduation,
the training took about a year.
“The most enjoyable was probably
the vehicle pursuit and firearm
training. It was really good and I
enjoyed it,” he said.
Now Filipiak is learning the ter-
ritory to help him in responding to
calls. “I love this area. I like the
Badlands, it’s beautiful,” he said.
Though he is stationed out of
Kadoka, he and his family live in
Philip. He is eager to get to know
the people and territory, to get in-
volved with some things. First he
wants to get to know everything
around town, but then plans get-
ting involved. He said that he
likes to hunt, fish and camp.
Dierkhising finished high school
in Minnesota in 2002. Then joined
the United States Air Force,
where he was a crew chief on B-1s
at Ellsworth Air Force Base for six
years. After completing the law
enforcement program at Western
Dakota Technical Institute in May
of 2012, he applied for an intern-
ship with the S.D. Highway Pa-
trol.
Dierkhising said that a big in-
fluence was growing up around
law enforcement, with his friends’
parents in law enforcement. In
high school, one of his classmates
was murdered. “I wanted to pro-
tect people, to keep an eye out for
the community,” said Dierkhising.
On top of that, he added, he had
cousins in military law enforce-
ment.
“I had a run-in with the Min-
nesota state patrol,” said
Dierkhising. The speeding ticket
incident was his first such en-
counter. “The state trooper’s de-
meanor and everything left an
impression on me. I’ve always
liked what the highway patrol
represents, their statewide juris-
diction,” said Dierkising. He hopes
that maybe one day he will leave
that same impression or mark on
someone else’s attitude toward
law enforcement personnel.
“The hardest part of training
was being away from my wife and
kids, back and forth, trying to give
as much time to them and my
training. My son was born right in
the middle of my training,” said
Dierkhising. He and his wife,
Ellie, have a three-year-old
daughter and a six-month-old son.
Dierkhising’s primary field
training was in the Custer area,
with some time in the Lemmon
and Brookings areas. “The most
enjoyable part was getting to
know more of South Dakota and
what people are like. Lemmon –
very, very friendly people, great
hospitality. Also, the networking
while in Pierre, with other law en-
forcement and retirees,” said
Dierkhising.
“We have a pretty big squad
area. I would like to get to know
the area and people and hope I
can be there for the people. This is
my job, but at the same time to get
them to slow down and be safe. It’s
a partnership,” said Dierkhising.

Cover Crop Information
Much has been written about
cover crops recently, but reminders
are often good. There are many
good reasons to plant cover crops,
but an important one is to have
something growing on prevented
plant acres rather than leave them
bare.
The Natural Resources Conser-
vation Service recently posted a
new publication, “Cover Crops to
Improve Soil in Prevented Planting
Fields”, available at:
www.nrcs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_
DOCUMENTS/stelprdb1142714.pd
f. The publication discusses the
benefits of healthy soil, and lists
the following 4 keys to soil health:
1. Disturb the soil less, 2. Feed the
soil with living plants as much as
possible, 3. Increase diversity, and
4. Keep the soil covered.
Prevented plant fields can be
vulnerable to water and wind ero-
sion. Depending on the next crop to
be planted, “fallow syndrome” can
pose problems due to the lack of bi-
ological activity. It is also well doc-
umented that many of the soils in
central and western South Dakota
have limited water holding capac-
ity, so the areas that have received
ample rainfall this spring and sum-
mer will not be able to capture all
of the moisture for the next crop.
One of the theories behind planting
cover crops is to use some of the
moisture that cannot be stored to
grow biomass, both above and
below ground to rebuild topsoil and
add organic matter. Having grow-
ing plants in place on the fields will
actually allow more of the rainfall
that occurs to soak into the soil
than if is left bare and some of it
runs off. If producers will be plant-
ing winter wheat on prevented
plant acres, cover crops will allow
them to grow some residue, termi-
nate them 10-14 days before plant-
ing and plant at the recommended
time, Sept 15 – Oct 15 with less
risk of wind erosion or fall aphid or
wheat curl mite infestations. Cover
crops may also provide grazing for
livestock producers, but check with
the Farm Service Agency and your
crop insurance agent regarding
prevented planting requirements
and harvest restrictions.
A number of information re-
sources on cover crops are available
online and listed below. For paper
copies of any of these, or additional
information, visit www.igrow.org
and/or contact your Regional Ex-
tension Center.

The public is invited to attend
the SDSU Cottonwood Field Sta-
tion Laboratory Grand Opening
and Tri-County Ag Day Sept. 7
from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
Until now, the Cottonwood
Field Station did not have an on-
sight laboratory for research or
routine testing of samples. Along
with a state-of-the art laboratory,
the new facility will also house of-
fice space, a heated shop and feed
storage.
"This building is a step forward
in modernizing the field station fa-
cilities for research and outreach,"
said Daniel Scholl, Director of the
South Dakota Agricultural Exper-
iment Station. "Before, most sam-
ple testing and laboratory
research had to be conducted off
site. I am confident that introduc-
ing a laboratory to this station will
increase the efficiency and
amount of future research con-
ducted at this station."
Field Day Agenda
Along with tours of the new lab-
oratory and current research, at-
tendees will have the opportunity
to view displays on the history of
the Cottonwood Field Station,
learn about research conducted at
the field station, take part in
hands-on demonstrations and
breakout sessions; as well as two
keynote presentations.
9 a.m.: Trade Show opens
9:30 a.m.: Welcome by Barry
Dunn, Dean of the College of Agri-
culture and Director of SDSU Ex-
tension
10 a.m.: Keynote Speaker,
Larry Corah, Vice President of
Production for Certified Angus
Beef
10 a.m.: Youth Activities for
ages 6-10
11 a.m. to noon: Facility & Re-
search Tours
12:30 p.m.: Ribbon cutting with
David Chicoine, President of
South Dakota State University.
12:45 p.m.: Lunch, entertain-
ment, and trade show
2 p.m. to 3:30 p.m.: Six half
hour breakout sessions begin:
1. The Genetics of Stayability
2. Matching Feeds and Condition
Score
3. The Inside Story of Nutrition
4. Fetal Programming
5. What's in the Water
6. Beef Quality Assurance
3:30 p.m. - 4:15 p.m.: Keynote
Speaker, Chad Mackay, President
and COO of El Gaucho Restau-
rants, Seattle, Wash.
2 p.m. - 4:15 p.m.: Youth Activi-
ties: Activities will be provided for
youth ages 6 to 10.
The Cottonwood Field Station
is located 11 miles west of Philip
along U.S. Hwy. 14.
Commercially available blood
tests to predict pregnancy are ac-
curate and an inexpensive tool cat-
tle producers can use to determine
their AI conception rate, according
to new research conducted at
South Dakota State University.
"The research showed that
these tests are 87 to 93 percent ac-
curate in the ability to correctly
identify pregnant animals at 30
days after conception," said George
Perry, research lead, SDSU Profes-
sor and SDSU Extension Beef Re-
production Specialist.
Results you can trust
Perry's research set out to de-
termine the accuracy of commer-
cially available blood pregnancy
tests at 30 days after conception -
a window of time that would
clearly inform cattle producers of
their AI conception rates, even
after a bull had been turned out
with the cows.
"Truly knowing AI conception
rates is critical to making improve-
ments to a reproduction program,
yet it is challenging for many pro-
ducers," said Perry, explaining
that prior to the blood tests, pro-
ducers relied on either transrectal
ultrasonography, which meant hir-
ing a professional - or labor-inten-
sive heat detection.
"Producers only other option
would be calving dates. We know
those are not reliable. Cows that
conceive within a couple of hours
of each other can still calve up to
three to four weeks apart," Perry
said.
To determine the tests' accu-
racy, Perry and his team AIed a
group of cows. Then for the next 30
days they observed twice-daily for
heat detection. Thirty days after
conception, the team collected
blood samples from each cow. A
portion of each blood sample was
tested by the three different avail-
able blood tests.
"The fact that all three tests
were used on the same animals, at
the same time made this research
conducted at SDSU unique," Perry
said.
Tests results were then com-
pared to the results of a transrec-
tal ultrasound which was also
conducted on day 30.
"Statistically, all the tests per-
formed similarly," said Perry, of
the resulting 87 to 93 percent ac-
curacy rate. "This study gives pro-
ducers another tool they can use to
gain knowledge and better manage
their operations. Now, instead of
hiring someone to preg check at 30
days and again at the end of breed-
ing season, producers can just pay
a professional to visit once."
He added that since several South
Dakota-based labs run the tests,
cattle producers can receive re-
sults within 72 hours or less of
mailing them.
National Recognition
Perry's research received national
recognition when a board of his
peers at the American Society of
Animal Science awarded his re-
search with a Presidential Pick.
"Dr. Perry's research is an excel-
lent example of work that has a di-
rect impact on beef cattle
producers in South Dakota and
has earned the recognition of other
scientists. This meets our goal of
conducting high quality applied re-
search," said Joseph Cassady, Ani-
mal Science Department Head.
The committee reviewed Perry's
and more than 2,200 other ab-
stracts and, based on scientific
merit and overall interest, the
committee selected Perry's as one
of only 30 to receive the prestigious
award.
"I'm honored and excited,"
Perry said. "As a researcher, we all
think our research is interesting,
but it's exciting when others think
it is valuable and interesting too."
