Patterson home engulfed by fire, smoke
A glow …Christmas lights in the
living room (set to come on with a
timer) were in a haze of smoke be-
fore the electricity was shut off at
an early evening fire at Whitney
and Skyler Patterson’s Thursday.
--photos by Ronda Dennis
Saving Christmas… Family and friends gathered to help salvage
Christmas presents through a living room window. However, like every-
thing else, they too were heavily smoke damaged.
In a scramble to save …Family and friends helped clear out what they could from Patterson’s smoke-
filled home. Everything suffered severe smoke damage and it’s unknow if anything will can be saved.
Last week brought forth tears
and sorrows for the Patterson fam-
ilies in Kadoka, starting with the
passing of Skyler’s 80-year-old
grandmother, Patty Patterson, on
Tuesday and ending with a house
fire in his own home on Thursday.
Fire sirens starting sounding
about 4:30 Thursday afternoon
after a neighbor of Whitney and
Skyler Patterson’s noticed smoke
coming from the house.
The Pattersons were both at
work when they learned of the fire
-- Whitney just next door at the
Kadoka Nursing Home, Skyler 50-
some miles south of Kadoka (in an
area with no cell phone service).
With the help of family and
friends, they were able to save
Christmas presents from the south
side of the home through a window
that had been busted out. Mean-
while, other’s were able to get in-
side the front door and haul other
smoke-damaged items to safety.
The most visible damage was
done on the north side of the house,
where fire engulfed two bedrooms
and floor joists.
It was in the basement where
the fire was believed to have
started. The basement was totaled
and left with 5-6” of water.
“You don’t realize what you’ve
got until it’s gone,” Skyler said. “All
of my (taxidermy) mounts were in
the basement.”
The Pattersons were just mar-
ried in June and they had just fin-
ished painting the last room in
their house. Christmas shopping
was done and they were ready for
the holidays.
The couple will be moving into
the former home of Steve Jeffords.
“I am going to get you a Christ-
mas tree,” said Whitney’s mom,
Debbie Antonsen. “Everyone needs
a tree.” she added.
The insurance adjuster was to
look at their house on Monday af-
ternoon and they will await his de-
cision as to the final outcome.
“We are thankful no one was
hurt, things can be replaced,”
Whitney added.
There will be a merry Christmas
at the Patterson home.

Ida Mae “Patty” Patterson_________
Ida Mae “Patty” Patterson, age
80, of Kadoka, S.D., died Tuesday,
December 11, 2012, at the Hans P.
Peterson Memorial Hospital in
Philip, surrounded by her chil-
dren, grandchildren, and great-
grandchildren.
Ida Mae Shoemaker was born
December 1, 1932, in Pierre, the
daughter of Rollie and Eva (McK-
ean) Shoemaker. She attended
country school and graduated from
Philip High School. One of Patty’s
fondest memories is the old Cozy
Hotel, which her parents owned
and operated in Philip.
Ida Mae married Jerry Patter-
son in 1949, and to this union were
born six children Robert, Sharon,
Grant, Scott, Cindy and Tammy.
Patty’s children recall the many
times she would take a load of chil-
dren to baseball games. She didn’t
want to deprive anyone of a ride.
Ida Mae moved to Rapid City in
1964, where she worked and de-
cided to further her education,
graduating from National College
of Business. She relocated to Den-
ver and worked for the U.S. Life
and Title Company, and worked
weekends as a waitress, for many
years.
Being close to the sports life
through her children, Ida Mae de-
veloped a love for football and be-
came a big fan of the Denver
Broncos. She was actually able to
meet many of the players of the
Denver Broncos team through her
waitressing at the Elks Club.
Wanting to be closer to her chil-
dren and grandchildren, she
moved back to Kadoka in 1990.
In 1990, Patty went to work at
her family’s business (Discount
Fuel) as secretary/treasurer, and
worked side by side, with Grant
and Tammy, for 13 years before ill
health forced Patty to retire.
Patty enjoyed living at the fam-
ily farm where she enjoyed the
openness and could spend time
with her cats. Patty enjoyed the
Kadoka area and being able to
spend time with her children,
grandchildren, and great-grand-
children.
For health reasons, Patty had to
leave the farm moving to the
Senechal Hotel and then to the Sil-
verleaf Assisted Living Center in
Philip. She was an avid Philip
Scotties fan and would sometimes
feel like she was betraying the
team if she sat on Kadoka’s side
during a basketball game, but
being her grandsons and grand-
daughters played for Kadoka, she
was biased to her family’s team.
She then moved to the Kadoka
Nursing Home where she has been
living until our Lord took her
home to be with her other loving
family who preceded her in death.
Patty was a member of the Pres-
byterian Church, Cancer Society,
and the Arbor Association.
Ida Mae “Patty” will always be
remembered as being a wonderful
loving mother and grandmother
whom loved each and everyone of
her children, grandchildren, and
great-grandchildren, whom she
was so proud of.
Survivors include her six chil-
dren Robert Patterson of Kadoka,
Sharon Bebout of Las Vegas, Nev.,
Grant Patterson and his wife,
Susan, of Kadoka, Scott Patterson
and his wife, Arla, of Kadoka;
Cindy VanderMay and her hus-
band, Mark, of Kadoka, and

daughters, Lisa and April Patter-
son of Kadoka; 22 grandchildren

We don’t have many shepherds
around here that are guarding
their flocks by night as described
in the Christmas story. We do have
quite a few cowboys and ranchers
that tend their herds although not
so much at night. Cattle are a lot
bigger than sheep and need less
protection. Both shepherds and
cowboys are in a similar line of
work, though, in looking after live-
stock, and Jesus came to earth for
people like us. He had a fondness
for ordinary folks that had no
great claim to fame and just went
about their business.
He also tended to surround him-
self with fishermen. Peter, Jame-
sand John were all men of the sea.
And, although these men were not
particularly learned, being with
Jesus made them into forces to be
reckoned with. They basically
turned the world upside down so
that it would never again be the
same.
During his time on earth, our
Lord was even kind to tax collec-
tors and showed them they were
acceptable to God and could please
him by being fair and honest.
There weren’t, in fact, many peo-
ple that Jesus didn’t reach out to
and have compassion for. He had
some trouble with the proud,
greedy, and power-hungry, but he
was willing to give even those a
chance to get close to him.
When you consider all these dif-
ferent types of people that Jesus
came to help, we can see that his
only motivation for coming to
earth had to be love for us. It
wasn’t because we were important
and deserved his help. Why else
would someone leave the glory of
heaven to be born in a lowly stable
in Bethlehem where he was no
doubt surrounded by animals and
there caretakers. And if that
wasn’t bad enough, considering
who he really was, he also came
knowing he would have to die a
terrible death to buy salvation for
those he loved. Not many of us
would be eager to leave a great and
beautiful place only to humble our-
selves and later die for others.
Jesus did just that, however, and
is therefore worthy of our thanks,
love, respect and worship.
The apostle Peter is one of my
favorite people. He was rather a
wild, impetuous fisherman who
tended to act first and think later.
This got him into trouble fairly
often. He had a good heart,
though, and stayed right next to
the Lord, kept trying, and became
a pillar of the early church. It just
goes to show what being with
Jesus can do for a person.
When you consider this world
and all the terrible things that go
on—murder, strife, dissention,
pride—being changed by God looks
very attractive. We would rather
be the kind policeman who pro-
vides shoes for a street person in
New York than the evil man who
forces his way into a school and
kills children and other innocent
folks. There are forces of good and
evil, and we are much more likely
to be classed with the good than
the evil if we stay in touch with
God.
Hard hearts just don’t cut it, as
you might expect. Judas was one of
the disciples, but he never softened
his heart. He stayed greedy and
self absorbed right to the end, and
even betrayed the Lord with a
kiss. He got thirty pieces of silver
for his betrayal. It wasn’t worth it
as he suddenly realized afterward,
so he killed himself in remorse.
What a sad account.
We, of course, have the option of
being tenderhearted towards God
instead of self-serving, and it is by
far the best option. May we this
Christmas be touched by the famil-
iar story of Bethlehem, the shep-
herds, the star, the wise men and
all of that. May it open our hearts
to the Lord so his goodness can
flow into us and then back out to
others. If you consider what Christ
did for us, it’s the least we can do.
We can become positive forces for
good, thanks to our Lord’s exam-
ple. Merry Christmas.
Sheppards by Night
Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
There will be a live nativity set
at the Belvidere Church on Christ-
mas Eve. The Christmas-Eve can-
dlelight service will start at 6:00
p.m. with refreshments afterwards.
The nativity scene will be in place
about 5:30. Animals in the nativity
at this point will be a small pony
(4-foot tall) provided by Jodie
O’Bryan and some goats belonging
to Dana Badure. The Sunday
school children will portray Mary
and Joseph, angels and shepherds.
Sunday School superintendent,
Merry Willard, said other animals
may be added, but she wasn’t sure
her husband, Chuck, was going to
let any of his prized chickens take
part.
Chuck and Merry Willard went
shopping in Rapid City on Friday.
They also have been having water
problems and were without run-
ning water in the house five days
last week. There was a blockage
somehow although the system was
working okay to water the cows,
and water could be carried into the
house from a hydrant. Collers came
with a backhoe and tried to find the
blockage to no avail so they ended
up replacing part of the line. Merry
said it looked like the yard had
been invaded by moles.
A Christmas cantata, Heaven’s
Child, was presented at the
Kadoka School Great Hall in
Kadoka on Sunday afternoon with
Don Heck directing. This was in
memory of Grace (Dolezal) DeVries
who provided piano accompani-
ment for many cantatas over the
years. Dan Rasmussen played
some violin music before the can-
tata and while people were coming
in. He was accompanied by Syd
Iwan. Syd played a piano piece to
start the event. Crystal Paulson
and Dawn Rasmussen were mem-
bers of the choir. Some of those at-
tending included Tom DeVries,
Larry and Joy Dolezal and their
granddaughter, Kayla Nemec, Kate
DeVries, Terry and Chloe Baldwin,
Delores Bonenberger, Fayola
Mansfield and Glenn and Lucy
Freeman. The cantata went well
and was enjoyed by many.
Tom DeVries had a musical
week since, in addition to attending
the cantata in memory of his wife,
Grace, he also went to a piano
recital. The recital was presented
by the students of his daughter, Tr-
isha Bork. Trisha also played a
piano solo.
Crystal Paulson said they’d been
practicing the cantata for a number
of weeks before presenting it on
Sunday, and occasionally they
thought they wouldn’t be able to
pull it off. As a result, she was
pleased that things came together
on Sunday for the concert and it
went well. Crystal said the last
week was busy with final exams,
grading them, and figuring grades,
but now she has three weeks off be-
fore classes start again in January.
She will be working at preparing
for what she will teach next semes-
ter, but she can do that at home
without traveling. She does plan
over Christmas vacation to get ac-
quainted with a new grandson,
Lincoln Jeffrey Paulson, who was
born on November 28 and lives in
Baltic near Sioux Falls. He is the
son of Crystal’s son, Leonard. After
that, she might swing down to
Omaha to see five more grandkids
belonging to her daughter, Ardel.
The seventh and last grandkid
(Davina’s daughter) lives in Texas
which may be too far away to visit
right now. Crystal’s sister, Elaine
Fuhrman, from Rapid City has
been here some recently and spent
time tearing off flooring at the
home of her mom, Dolores Obr. The
whole clan will probably get to-
gether and redo all of Dolores’
floors, but they think of that as just
a good opportunity to enjoy getting
together.
Marie Addison went to church in
Belvidere on Sunday and then con-
tinued on to Kadoka where she vis-
ited Kate DeVries at the nursing
home.
Lee Addison and Rhonda are
planning a trip towards Huron this
week to pick up a couple of milk
cows they’ve purchased. The cows
are coming from Iroquois but will
be brought part way by the fellow
who sold them the cows. These will
be Jerseys so Rhonda figures
they’ll soon have plenty of cream
since Jerseys are big on that.
Rhonda said she once had a Hol-
stein cow that gave so much milk it
was hard to use it all up. Fresh
milk, butter, etc. are on the hori-
zon.
Francie Davis said her brother,
Patrick, is coming home for Christ-
mas and will arrive in Rapid City
on the 19th. He is in the Marines
and hasn’t been home for close to
two years. Brother Les also has two
weeks off and will come from Sioux
Falls so the whole family will be
around for the holidays. Francie
just finished most of her college
work that she’s been taking largely
over the Internet. She hopes to
graduate now with a degree in gen-
eral studies with emphasis on edu-
cation, social studies, and fine arts.
She is also starting to train for an
eight-mile Spartan run that will be
held in Phoenix, AZ, before long.
This features such obstacles as
climbing ropes, mud, barbed wire,
fire, and so on. Chad is helping her
train by dropping her off at three to
six miles from home on his way to
work in the mornings so she can
run back.
Larry and Joy Dolezal were vis-
ited this weekend by their grand-
daughters, Joanna and Kayla
Nemec. Both girls just finished a
semester at the School of Mines in
Rapid City. Joanna came to work
three shifts at the Kadoka Nursing
Home. Kayla rode along to hang
out with Joy. Dolezals attended
church in Belvidere on Sunday.
Larry next had a meeting of the
nursing home board in Kadoka,
and, finally, Larry, Joy and Kayla
attended the cantata.
Bunny Green continues to stay
with her granddaughter, Ruthie, in
Ft. Pierre. She said she isn’t sure if
she will be able to return to her
home in Belvidere or not, but it
isn’t looking too hopeful right now
as locomotion on her own can be
problematic. She has her dog and
bird with her in Ft. Pierre, how-
ever. On Sunday, she got to go out
and view all the trees at the capitol
building. She said they were beau-
tiful including a monstrous speci-
men at the front. After seeing the
trees, they had lunch at the China
Buffet, which is always good. She
sends greeting to all her friends
here.
JESUS is the reason
for the season!
Marjorie Popkes brought her
mother, Irene Kaufman, to Norris
on Monday. Carol Ferguson then
took Irene to Rapid City for eye
surgery and after a follow up ap-
pointment on Wednesday, Carol
took her Mom back home to Valen-
tine, NE, in the afternoon.
Wednesday, June Ring accompa-
nied Robert and Sharon Ring to
Rapid City where they kept ap-
pointments.
A good crowd of folks enjoyed at-
tending the Norris School program
Thursday afternoon. The students
of Ms. Face’s fourth and fifth grade
were busy handing out delicious
decorated sugar cookies to all who
came. Folks were thrilled to see
Dorothy Richardson (former
teacher at Prairie View school)
there and even Santa Claus paid a
surprise visit to see all the kids.
Apples and oranges were given out
to all the guests at the close of the
program compliments of Leon and
Cora Huber and the of the Pioneer
Store. It was a fun afternoon.
Thursday, Samantha Taft ar-
rived from USD to spend the
Christmas break at the home of her
parents, Dan and Susan Taft. Fri-
day, Samantha and Susan went to
Pierre. They enjoyed seeing the
Christmas trees at the South
Dakota Capitol. They also enjoyed
hearing the White River Middle
School and High School choir per-
form at the capitol for an hour.
Morgan Taft is a member of the
middle school group.
The James Letelliers sold calves
in Ft. Pierre on Friday and were
overnight guests at the Paul Beck-
with home.
Carol Ferguson has been busy
running the Belvidere and Norris
Post Offices numerous days in the
last two weeks.
Saturday, Dan and Susan Taft
and Heather went to Rapid City
and picked up some parts. While
there they visited a bit with their
brother-in-law and uncle, Curt
Eisenbraun.
Maxine Allard hosted the Norris
Bible Church Sunday School and
treated the group to a solo of “Star
of the East”. It had been years
since many of us had even heard it.
Why did that old Christmas song
disappear?
Sharon Allard of Spearfish ar-
rived on Sunday afternoon to visit
her mother Maxine. Dorothy Bligh
paid the gals a visit later in the
day. Sharon came down with sup-
plies for the Norris Head Start and
delivered them on Monday.
Sunday evening, James and
Marjorie Anne Letellier and Andee
Beckwith enjoyed attending the
Christmas program at the Lake-
view Community Church as guests
of their daughter, Julie. You should
have heard the Christmas carols
ringing out from that little country
church! It is so blessed with talent
it is unbelievable.
School News: Christmas parties
will be held Thursday morning in
the different classrooms. School
dismisses at 12:30 p.m. that day for
the Christmas break and resumes
on January 7, 2013. White River
students will be busy playing bas-
ketball and taking part in other ac-
tivities at the Lakota Nation
Invitational in Rapid City starting
Wednesday at 10:00 a.m. so our
local traveling band of fans will be
heading west for that. Good Luck,
kids! You always make us proud.
Be sure and drive around and
see the Christmas lights, especially
head up on the hill at the Gale
Letellier home. Jerry has been
busy decorating the outside. It is
certainly worth a drive to see.
Several kids from this area will
be taking part in the Long Valley
School Christmas program on
Wednesday, December 20 in the
evening. There is nothing like a
country school program to get one
in the spirit of Christmas. Every-
one is invited to attend.
Dan Taft went to Kadoka one
day this week.
In the midst of all our gifts and
glitz of Christmas; may we take
time to give the glory to our Sav-
iour Jesus Christ who was born on
that day so long ago. May your
prayers include those heartbroken
families in Connecticut; who are
suffering such a horrific loss. Re-
member, Jesus came to save us
from our sins, but it certainly didn’t
take all the sin out of the world.
May you trust in the Christ of
Christmas this year.
Merry Christmas!
Jim and Arlene Kujawa are decorated for the Christmas

turkeys coming down from the
mountains. Michael is the son of
Chris and Pat Madsen of Presho.

scoring in eight rounds and Chad
Ferley ended up 9th in the average,
scoring in seven rounds. The bar-

Philip Area wrestlers took a trip
to Valentine, Neb., for a chance to
test themselves against top teams
from that state as well as two other
South Dakota schools.
Head coach Matt Donnelly noted
that the tournament did not go as
good as expected. “We had some
wrestlers who did not wrestle as
well as expected,” he said. The 126
and 145 pound weight classes were
not filled, one due to an injury.
Reed Johnson, who typically wres-
tles at 152 pounds, is out due to a
cartiledge injury. “Hopefully he’ll
be back in two weeks,” Donnelly
said. Lane Blasius moved up from
the 145 pound class to fill John-
son’s spot.
Philip Area followed only Pierre’s
T.F. Riggs High School in the final
team standings. In order of points
were Pierre (191.5), Philip (141),
Valentine (131.5), Plattsmouth,
(127), Winner, S.D. (100), Ord (90),
O’Neill (86.5), Chadron (85.5),
David City (82.5), Alliance (64),
Ainsworth (39.5), Gordon/Rush-
ville (35), McCook (30), and Broken
Bow (10).

The grapplers will focus on im-
proving their performance as they
have an extra week between meets.
Donnelly felt the wrestlers took a
step backward and were not focus-
ing on what was ahead of them;
were living off last week’s accom-
plishment.
They will travel to Salem for Mc-
Cook Central-Montrose’s tourna-
ment on December 29. Donnelly
noted that it was going to “be a dog
fight all the way around.” Philip is
the lone West River team traveling
east to take on the East River
teams.
Grapplers score second place at Valentine
Lady Kougars. Faith’s zone defense
was able to pick off our passes and
go in for the fast breaks. The
turnovers and lack of attacking the
basket, led to a 40-26 deficit at the
end of the third quarter.
Despite being down by 14, the
Lady Kougars never gave up. They
hustled the whole fourth quarter,
putting pressure on them the en-
tire time. Their intensity improved
during the fourth quarter, but they
still weren’t able to take over the
Longhorns. The game ended with
the score 53-32.
Marti Herber led the team with
11 points, as well as 5 fouls. Taylor
Merchen had 5 points, Kwincy Fer-
guson and Tessa Stout 4 points,
Raven Jorgensen and Shaley Her-
ber 3 points and Katie Lensegrav
with a bucket.

The Kadoka Lady Kougars hit
the road, Saturday, Dec. 8, to play
the Faith Lady Longhorns.
They started out the first half
with a lot of intensity, playing a
tough, full court man-to-man de-
fense. Marti Herber and Taylor
Merchen fired up the team and
crowd, each nailing a three pointer
in the first quarter. Faith, however,
was able to hit their shots and lead
the first quarter 14-9.
Through hard work, the Kadoka
Kougars played a strong second
quarter. They were able to make
some good steals and convert at the
other end. Kadoka was able to
outscore the Lady Longhorns 11-5,
giving the Kougars a halftime lead
20-19.
They also went into the locker
room knowing they weren’t in foul
trouble. Unfortunately, the Lady
Longhorns came out the second
half with more intensity than the
Lady Kougars drop to
Faith in second half
by Tessa Stout and Kwincy Fergu-
son shot 4/6 free throws. Marti,
Shaley and Raven fouled out before
the final buzzer, which had Jones
County winning, 59-41.
Leading the Kougars in scoring
were Kwincy Ferguson with 16
points, Katie Lensegrav, 9 points;
Marti Herber, 6; Tessa Stout, 5;
Taylor Merchen, 3; Raven Jor-
gensen, 2. Rachel Buxcel of Jones
County lead the Coyotes with 21
points.
The Kadoka Lady Kougars trav-
eled to Murdo on Tuesday, Decem-
ber 11 to take on the Jones County
Coyotes.
Both teams played a pretty even
first quarter. Katie Lensegrav put
in two buckets and a free throw,
Raven Jorgensen and Marti Herber
with a basket, Kwincy Ferguson
with two free throws and Taylor
Merchen with one free throw. At
the end of the first quarter, Jones
County was up 15-12.
The Coyotes went on a run,
outscoring the Kougars 20-8 the
second quarter. Kwincy shot 4/7
free throws, and Marti and Katie
each made a basket, leaving the
Kougars down, 35-20.
The Kougars made a few adjust-
ments at halftime and came back
fighting into the third quarter.
They outscored the Coyotes 14-10,
with Marti, Katie, Taylor and Tessa
Stout each putting in a basket.
Kwincy made one basket and shot
4/6 free throws. At the end of the
third quarter, Jones County was
still ahead 45-34.
The Kougars got into foul trou-
ble the fourth quarter as well as
not attacking and hitting their
shots. The only basket made in the
fourth quarter was a three pointer

The Board of Jackson County Commis-
sioners met in special session at 6:30

lores Bonenberger, Larry Denke and Ron

Stilwell was absent. Vice Chairman Larry
Denke chaired the meeting. Aaron
Richardson, Acting Hwy. Supt., and Dan
Van Gorp, Sts. Atty., were also present.
All motions carried unanimously unless
otherwise noted.
A haul road release submitted by
Loiseau Construction was presented to
the board. Loiseau Construction had
used CS 46, the road to Pat Weaver’s, in
completion of a state project. Aaron
Richardson reported they fixed a cattle
guard on the road, laid gravel, have laid
millings on higher areas of the road, and
he reported the road to meet county ap-
proval. Bennett moved, Twiss seconded,
that the haul road release be approved
and signed.
Loiseau Construction submitted a ton-
nage report on overburden material re-
moved from the Harvey Pit. Total
tonnage calculated at 8,545.18 cubic
yards.
The report was faxed to Loiseau Con-
struction.
A cattle guard permit submitted by Brett
Guptill was presented to the board.
Twiss reported on material to be used in
placing the cattle guard. Bennett moved,
Twiss seconded, that the permit be ap-
proved. Discussion was held that the
permit was submitted on an older version
of the cattle guard permit. Motion carried
with the following vote: Bennett, yea;
Twiss, yea; Bonenberger, nay. Twiss will
deliver the new version of the cattle
guard permit to Brett Guptill, and return
the new completed permit.
Twiss reported that he had met with Mike
Vaughn about the cattle guard permit that
was submitted to the board on October
26, 2012 and tabled. Mike Vaughn plans
to use creosoted railroad ties as abut-
ments in placing the cattle guard. The
road on which the cattle guard is to be
placed is leading to the Rob Goodman
residence, and no other residences are
on the road. Bennett moved, Twiss sec-
onded, that the cattle guard permit of
Mike Vaughn be approved. Motion car-
ried with the following vote: Bennett yea;
Twiss, yea; Bonenberger, nay.
Aaron Richardson reported that the lease
tractors have low hours on them, but are
scheduled to be returned to Grossenburg
Implement. He informed the board he will
contact Grossenburg Implement on Mon-
day and see what can be worked out to
extend the time allowed for lease of the
tractors.
Aaron Richardson reported that Jay Vo-
gelgesang has inquired about getting a
culvert replaced on the approach leading
to his residence off of CS 49. The board
requested that Aaron Richardson inform
Jay Vogelgesang that county policy is
that the county does not install ap-
proaches or culverts to private drives, but
that the County Highway Superintendent
is to inspect and approve the installation.
Aaron Richardson inquired as to whether
the road leading to the Colby Porch res-
idence is shown as being on the county
system.
Aaron Richardson reported that Ron
Gartner had requested maintenance on
the road to their residence. He informed
the board he told him maintenance would
not be done as the road was not shown
on the county system. He stated there is
a sign posted between Paul Harvey’s
place and Ron Gartner’s place which
says BIA 1.
Discussion was held on a verbal agree-
ment with the BIA / Tribe years ago in
which the county would maintain a sec-
tion of road east from Hwy 44 now known
as CS 37 and the Tribe would maintain
Lensegrav Road (CS 41A) south and
east of Potato Creek. Aaron Richardson
reported that work had been done on
past the section of county road on
Craven Road, and that ruts had been
filled in, the road was pulled up at Bear
Creek, and work done near Butch Liver-
mont’s.
A utility easement was presented by
Golden West to place fiber optic cable in
the county highway right-of-way at the in-
tersection of BIA 2 and the Allen Road.
Should the line need to be moved in the
future, it would be done at no cost to the
county. Bennett moved, Twiss seconded,
that the easement be approved and
signed.
4-H leaders, Jackie Stilwell, Nicki Bonen-
berger, Amy Smiley, and Donna Enders,
met with the board. States Attorney Van
Gorp was also present. Discussion was
held on the four county group estab-
lished in the fall of 2011 with four coun-
ties sharing in the cost of the 4-H
program. The Commissioners presented
information they had received regarding
concerns with the program and the advi-
sor, and of attempts to contact persons
at SDSU to discuss the program with no
response. Report was made that Haakon
County does not want to continue in the
four county group, and are considering
Sheryl Hansen as the 4-H Advisor for
Haakon County. Inquiry was made as to
whether Mellette County really wanted
out of the group. No information was pro-
vided on Jones County. Report was
made that Bennett County was on their
own and seems to be doing well. Jackie
Stilwell stated the four county group was
a state plan, it took a lot of time to set it
up, and now feel it was a waste of time.
She suggested the state be notified that
we did what you wanted, but it is not
working. Donna Enders reported that
Carrie Weller is very knowledgeable with
the horse and livestock segment of 4-H,
and Sheryl Hansen is very good with the
office side of the program. She reported
that 100% of the Jackson County 4-H
members are in horse, livestock, or both.
She also commented that Carrie Weller
had 4-H activities scheduled throughout
the four county area, so was not always
in an office. The Commissioners re-
quested the 4-H leaders, Leaders Coun-
cil, and the Fair Board meet and decide
what they want to do, and then meet with
Haakon County on November 8th and
meet with Jackson County on November
9th.
Aaron Richardson reported that the blue
truck repair is nearly complete, and the
estimated bill at this time is $8,300.00.
He also reported that the 140G grader
quit, but is now running. He also reported
on gravel trailer repairs and other vehicle
repairs.
Discussion was held on the contract with
Western Construction of October 12,
2012, and revised contract of October
15, 2012, not qualifying under the bid let-
ting for crushing and stockpiling gravel
held by Jackson County on October 12,
2011. Twiss moved, Bonenberger sec-
onded, that the contract with Western
Construction be declared null and void.
A quote was received from Western Con-
struction, Rapid City, SD to crush and
stockpile gravel at $3.82 per ton at the
Harvey Pit southeast of Interior. This
quote was submitted as per the February
2012 bid letting held by Pennington
County. Pennington County bid docu-
ments were presented to the board. The
documents were reviewed. States Attor-
ney Van Gorp advised that the board not
to use the Pennington County bid for en-
tering into a contract for having gravel
crushed and stockpiled.
Twiss moved, Bennett seconded, that
Jackson County advertise for bids to
have gravel crushed and stockpiled at
the Harvey Pit, that States Attorney Van
Gorp revise the bid notice, and the bid
letting be held on November 21, 2012.
There being no further business to come
before the board, Bennett moved, Twiss
seconded, that the meeting be ad-
journed, and that the board meet to can-
vass the votes of the November 6, 2012
General election at 9:00 a.m., Friday, No-
vember 9, 2012 and continue in regular

NEW BUSINESS:
A. Bids for 2013 Solid Waste Transporta-
tion: West River Excavation submitted
the only bid for the solid waste trans-
portation contract. The bid is as follows:
$500.00 per trip, and if fuel prices rise
above $3.00/gallon, a surcharge of
$5.00/trip for each .05/gallon increase in
fuel price. After discussion, Willert made
Motion 12-12-10:117 to approve the bid
as submitted by West River Excavation.
The motion was seconded by Stolley. A
roll call vote was taken, with all members
present voting yes and the motion car-
ried 5-0.
B. Designate Official Depository, News-
paper and Attorney for 2013: Shuck
made Motion 12-12-10:118 to make the
following designations: BankWest as the
official depository, Kadoka Press as offi-
cial newspaper, and Alvin Pahlke as offi-
cial attorney for the City of Kadoka. The
motion was seconded by Prang, with all
members present voting yes and the mo-
tion carried 5-0.
C. Auditorium Sound System: The prob-
lems with the auditorium sound system
were discussed at a previous meeting.
Bob Fugate contacted Mid States Audio,
the company that installed the system,
and discussed the problems and possi-
ble solutions. Currently the sound is not
evenly distributed and so there are many
areas where it is nearly impossible to
hear what is being said on the stage.
Possible solutions include: over the ear
microphones and/or wired microphones
to be located on the floor. In addition to
these suggestions, Mid States Audio
stated that for $700.00 they would also
come out and do a total inspection of the
system and readjust everything to what
it was when installed, and they would
also install any improvement to the sys-
tem, such as microphones, etc. At a pre-
vious meeting, Mr. Fugate stated that he
had discussed funding for the improve-
ment with KCBA and the Horizons group.
Shuck stated that the music parents had
expressed an interest in being involved
with the project. Mr. Fugate is on the
agenda to discuss this information with
the school board at their meeting to be
held on Wednesday, December 12,
2012. The consensus of the council was
that something needs to be done; how-
ever, Shuck and Stolley stated that they
thought Mid States Audio should come
out and assess the problem before any
decisions are made on additional equip-
ment. Shuck stated that he thought floor
microphones would be sufficient. Stolley
stated that he was not against the pro-
posal, but wanted to know what individu-
als and/or groups are interested in
assisting with funding the proposal.
COUNCIL REPORTS:
A. Water/Sewer: A water leak on Bay-
berry Street was repaired.
B. Streets: We had the first snow re-
moval of the year over the weekend. The
new furnace installed in November is not
working. The problem may stem from
condensation in the propane tank; a part
has been ordered and will be installed
when it is received.
C. Solid Waste: The red pickup has been
repaired.
D. Liquor: no report
E. Auditorium/Park: There are activities
or practice most days and nights.

distributed.

items discussed under the mayor’s re-
port:

Word. Willert made Motion 12-12-10:119
to accept the resignation, with regret.
The motion was seconded by Shuck with
all members present voting yes and the
motion carried 5-0.
End of Year Meeting: Thursday, Decem-
ber 27, 2012 was set for the year end
meeting; and, the meeting will begin at
5:00 pm. Contingency fund transfers and
transfer of funds to the water department
will be among the items acted upon at
the meeting.
Billing for Furnace at Shop: The bill for
the new furnace installed at the shop was
received. The street department is over
budget and the contingency fund money
will be needed to cover budget shortfalls,
not only in the street department, but
other departments within the general
fund. After discussion, Shuck made Mo-
tion 12-12-10:120 to pay the bill for the
new furnace from the Liquor Department.

tion was seconded by Willert, with all

The Town Board of Interior met on April
18, 2011 at 7:00 p.m. at Cowboy Corner.
Board Members present were Allen
Grimes, Kelly Fortune and Sue Leach.
Also present were Galen Livermont, and
Linda Livermont.
Minutes for the 3/14/2012 regular meet-
ing were approved as read.
OLD BUSINESS: The first reading of Or-
dinance 12-02 was approved. A copy of
the revised ordinances will be given to a
lawyer to review. Kelly will call Alvin
Pahlke from Winner to see if he will do
the review. Linda will talk to Marlene
about how to start getting reimbursed
from the grant for bills paid on the sewer
lagoon. The land purchase needs to be
negotiated with Perry. Linda will call the
Municipal League about the Fire Depart-
ment.
The bees owned by a town resident were
removed from town following numerous
verbal complaints and one written com-
plaint that they were a nuisance. No
more action needs to be taken.
NEW BUSINESS: Clean-up Day will be
scheduled for April 26th with the school
participating. Sue will take care of the
noon meal for the kids. Linda will order
the construction dumpster for town resi-
dents to use.

fire hall. It was decided to cash in the
small $16,000 CD until we start getting
reimbursements on sewer lagoon ex-
penses.
Sealed bids were opened on the tractor
blade, mower and propane tank. Kelly
made a motion to accept the bids re-
ceived, seconded by Sue. Motion
passed. Allen Grimes had the winning
bid on the blade and Jerry Sampson on
the other two items. The propane tank
sale was withdrawn since it belongs to
the Fire Department. Jerry Sampson will
be refunded for that item.

check with the county at their meeting on

on.
NEW BUSINESS: Eric Brunnemann at-
tended representing Badlands National
Park. He said there is a different type of
visitor that travels on Highway 44 vs. In-

the visitors welcome. The new cabins will
provide a longer stay in the area and we
need to work together to take care of
these visitors. Several events are spon-
sored by the Park including the Heritage
Festival and the Astronomy Festival later
in the month. Media kits will be available
for the Astro Festival. Thanks to the IVFD
and Town for partnering on the Festival.
Eric would like to sponsor banners that
would be put up in the town to advertise
park and town events. The article from
the KOA magazine was passed around.
It may be possible to make a link to the
Park website for this type of information.
Rails to Trails is also in the process and
could benefit both the park and town.
Marathons could also be set up. See Eric
or Steve with any park questions.

Perry Guptill’s land for the 18 acres on the
old dump site. Linda will work with Kem-
nitz to get this done. Allen ordered 6

Santa Claus made it to the In-
galls house in De Smet, Dakota
Territory, even if the train bearing
supplies did not. In The Long Win-
ter, Laura Ingalls Wilder describes
how she and her family faced the
hard winter of 1880-81. That
Christmas, small striped packages
by each place at the table contained
Christmas candy. There were pres-
ents, too. Laura, her sister Carrie
and Ma had combined their money
to purchase a pair of blue sus-
penders for Pa. Laura gave a card-
board hair receiver to Ma and a roll
of knitted lace to her sister Mary.
She found the prettiest card she
had been given in Sunday school
and placed it in a frame for Carrie.
Baby Grace tore the paper from her
gift to reveal a toy.
The two cans of oysters that Pa
had bought from the store were
combined with the last of the milk
the Ingalls’ cow gave to make a
Christmas dinner of oyster soup.
“‘Oh, what a lovely Christmas,’
Carrie sighed. Laura thought so
too. Whatever happened, they
could always have a merry Christ-
mas,” Ingalls wrote in The Long
Winter.
Christmas, whether one was a
pioneer in town, in the Army or a
homesteader, was observed on the
frontier, as evidenced in different
writings about the day.
In A Frontier Army Christmas
compiled by Lori A. Cox-Paul and
Dr. James W. Wengert, 1st Sgt.
Ragnar Theodor Ling-Vannerus of
the Seventh Cavalry wrote of his
camp’s holiday preparations at
Pine Ridge in 1890: “Every tent
was decorated with firs and twigs,
and long garlands of evergreens
were stretched between the tents.
At each end of the picket lines,
sheaves were put up … In the
kitchens everybody was busy;
turkeys and geese were roasted or
grilled and filled with apples and
other delicacies, whole pigs were
hung on the broaches, pastries and
cakes were baked, and so on …
Eventually came the feast eagerly
longed-for, and mighty was the
drinking among high and low …
Along the walls there were low
seats covered with a mixed collec-
tion of skin rugs, in whose soft,
warm furs it was delightful to rest,
while speeches, toasts, and songs
made time unnoticeably go by.
There were also Christmas gifts
from near and far.”
In June 1909, 21-year-old Eliza-
beth Corey came to South Dakota
to stake out a claim, homestead the
land and to teach school. She filed
claim to land 10 miles southwest of
Pierre, along the Bad River. The
letters she wrote to her family in
Iowa from 1909 to 1919 are con-
tained in the State Archives of the
South Dakota State Historical So-
ciety at the Cultural Heritage Cen-
ter in Pierre. The letters are the
basis of Bachelor Bess.
Corey wrote of her first Christ-
mas as a homesteader, “I have
three Xmas presents. Mrs. Stone
gave me a beauty of a button box.
Myrtle gave me a pretty Xmas card
and Speers gave me an enameled
quart cup … Xmas day there was
lots of company and lots to do so I
never had time to get homesick.
Just before supper Howard hitched
to the bobsleigh and we went to
take Ben Share some Xmas good-
ies.”
All was not calm on Christmas
Day 1862 in Yankton, Dakota Ter-
ritory. According to Christmas on
the American Frontier 1800-1900
by John E. Baur, a brawl broke out
between a supporter of territorial
legislator J.B.S Todd and a backer
of territorial Governor William
Jayne. Todd’s supporter threw in
the towel and Jayne’s defender
broke the man’s thumb.
Politics and Christmas seldom
mix.

Health Benefits of Eating Fish
According to the 2010 Dietary
Guidelines for Americans, we need
to eat seafood at least twice a week
for heart and brain benefits. The
guidelines specifically state that
we need to consume 8 ounces of
seafood per week.
Eating a variety of seafood will
insure that we are getting some
that are higher in omega-3s. The
omega-3 fatty acids in fish (espe-
cially in darker-colored fish like
trout, salmon, and tuna) can help
lower your blood pressure, lower
your heart rate, and improve other
cardiovascular risk factors. The
growth of cancer cells, including
prostate and breast cancer cells,
have been shown to be inhibited by
omega-3 fatty acids. Omega 3 fatty
acids from seafood can help im-
prove nervous system develop-
ment in infants and children.
Serve children seafood twice a
week in portion sizes that are ap-
propriate for their appetite and
age.
Varieties of baked or broiled fish
such as tuna or salmon tend to be
varieties that are higher in omega-
3. White fish such as cod is often
made into fish sticks. Cod is lower
in omega-3 fatty acids, but has
been known to fight against “bad
cholesterol”. Shellfish such as oys-
ters, clams and mussels all supply
healthy omega-3’s also. Increasing
your seafood consumption doesn’t
have to be expensive. Canned
seafood such as tuna, salmon and
sardines are affordable and easy to
use. Tilapia, whiting and some
frozen seafood can have lower cost
options.
A variety of seafood is a healthy
addition to the diet of pregnant
women, women who may become
pregnant and mothers who are
breastfeeding. The fatty acids in
seafood ensure healthy eye and
brain development of the baby and
young child. Pregnant and breast-
feeding mothers shouldn’t eat king
mackerel, swordfish, shark, tile-
fish or any raw fish which are
higher in mercury content. Mer-
cury may have subtle effects on the
developing nervous systems of in-
fants.
Try broiling, grilling, baking or
roasting seafood to keep it healthy
and flavorful. Using spices or
herbs such as lemon or lime juice,
paprika, dill or cumin can add a
burst of flavor without adding salt.
For tasty seafood creativity, con-
sider making grilled fish tacos,
salad with grilled scallops, salmon
patties, shrimp stir-fry or oven-
baked pollock.
The following examples can
serve as a guide for getting 8
ounces of seafood a week: 1 small
trout is about 3 ounces, a drained
can of tuna is about 3 to 4 ounces
and a salmon steak is 4 to 6
ounces. For an “Easy Fish Chow-
der” recipe and other quick,

Will You Be Part of the
Solution, or
Part of the Problem?
Farmers and ranchers are pro-
ducing more food, fiber and fuel
than ever before. The dramatic in-
crease in agricultural productivity,
particularly in the past 100 years,
has occurred due to a combination
of ingenuity, university research,
Extension education, and technol-
ogy.
Much of this technology is in the
form of chemical pesticides to con-
trol weeds, insects and diseases.
These products have been a relief
for producers as they provided an
effective way to protect their crops
and livestock, but they didn’t come
without drawbacks.
Of course they come at a price,
but if chosen, applied and man-
aged wisely, return more than the
cost to use them in increased pro-
duction. Pesticides vary in their
level of toxicity, but if used with
care, and while wearing the proper
personal protective equipment,
can be relatively safe. There are
also potential environmental and
residue concerns, but by following
label recommendations, and used
with training and discretion, these
risks can also be minimized.
An emerging problem has been
resistance of the pests to the pesti-
cides farmers and ranchers have
come to depend on to control them.
Herbicide, insecticide and fungi-
cide resistance have all been docu-
mented for individual species and
products as early as the 1940’s.
The incidence of documented re-
sistance has become more common
in recent years, which is no sur-
prise due to the large number of
products that have become avail-
able, and to a dramatic increase in
the use of them.
Resistance starts small and can
go unseen for a period of time as
mutations in weed, insect and/or
disease populations enable indi-
vidual or a small percentage of
plants, insects or fungal organisms
to survive an application of the
chemical. Resistance can acceler-
ate quickly however, as the suscep-
tible individuals are controlled and
the resistant population survives,
becomes dominant and multiplies.
Using higher rates and/or products
with the same mode of action can
speed up the process.
Certain practices are known to
increase the incidence of resist-
ance to pesticides, and fortunately,
there are recommendations to
avoid it.
Monitor pests--Use research-
based sampling procedures to de-
termine if pesticides are necessary
(based on action/economic thresh-
olds) and the best application tim-
ing (when pests are most
susceptible). Consult your Exten-
sion Field Specialist or crop advi-
sor about economic thresholds for
the pest in question. After treat-
ment, continue monitoring to as-
sess pest populations and their
control.
Employ appropriate control
measures--Effective IPM-based
programs will include pesticides,
cultural practices, biological con-
trol, mechanical control and sani-
tation. A healthy plant or crop is
often less susceptible to pests.
Select and use pesticides wisely
and according to label directions.
You can decide whether you are
part of the solution, or part of the
problem. For more information,
contact your Regional Extension
Center.
