doing a great job with the program.
Staffing is stable, however after
turnovers in a couple of depart-
ments, they are back on track.
There has been a number of par-
ties and fun programs going on at
the nursing home over the past
year. One was a Halloween party.
The staff gave gifts for Christ-
mas as well as the National Honor
Society and Women Helping
Women contributions.
Last summer they hosted their
resident/family picnic and carnival
which was enjoyed by all. The prof-
its went to the residents fund
which is used for outings, bus trips
and it also supports the Resident of
the Month.
The Resident of the Month is
featured at the beginning of each
month in the Kadoka Press. During
the month, the chosen resident
chooses a special meal for their
family, and are treated with fine
dining. They are also pampered
with royal treatment throughout
the month.
Other activities included the
KGFX Hometown Tour in June.
And then comes the time of year
for the three-day Department of
Health inspection.
Sanftner noted that there were
no state deficiencies and a zero per-
cent rate of medication errors.
However, they had three Federal
deficiencies and seven life safety
deficiencies. One, she said, was
that there was no exit sign by the
stairs in the basement. Everything
has been fixed.
The completion of the sprinkler
system was the big project for the
year. In addition to the sprinkler
system being installed, along with
soffits to cover the exposed pipes in
the hallway, a new public rest-
room, new cement work along the
west side of the building and side-
walks were done. A drainage issue
toward the alley was also fixed.
The final project walk through
with Community Development
Block Grant, Rural Development
West Plains Engineering and Com-
plete Concrete was done on Oct. 8.
From this project the nursing
home now has a loan for $53,500 at
an interest rate of 3.75% with a
monthly payment of $216 over the
next 40 years.
Through the grant money they
were able to replace the front door
and the ramp at the back entrance
to the clinic.
The total cost of the project was
The nursing home still has a
loan with BankWest for the com-
pletion of the clinic in the amount
of $31,154.82. Monthly payments
are $414.
They also have two loans with
West Central Electric for the roof of
the clinic and nursing home. Com-
bined, they total $86,915.35.
With 21 tables at last year’s
Prime Rib Dinner, the nursing
home made a profit of $13,000.
Sanftner said this year the event
will be held on Saturday, April 20.
“We need to keep this facility
open to care for our loved ones,” she
Once the new windows, that
Stilwell mentioned earlier, are in-
stalled, Sanftner said that leaves
windows in one room, the nursing
home offices and the county nurse
offices to replace.
Other purchases this year in-
clude two water heaters, seven air
conditions, a compressor for the air
conditioner in the clinic, a floor
buffer, freezer, four beds and other
smaller daily items.
Sanftner reminded those in at-
tendance that the nursing home
puts a lot of money back in the
community through wages
($839,335), food and utilities
Insurance is another big item.
There are plans to make an in-
crease on coverage. The nursing
currently carries $2.5 million on
the building and $250,000 on the
contents. Plans are to increase
those figures to $5 million and $1
million, respectively.
Sanftner thanked the board for
all of their support and all they do.
Kent Olson said, “When all they
(Dept. of Health) find is little
things in the state survey, that’s a
good survey.” He said it comes
down to the hands-on care. Resi-
dent care is done well here.
In going over the income state-
ment, he said some of the expenses
have gone down, but they need to
run close to full to keep the total
margin down.
This year’s total resident income
was $1,260,806 and the expenses
were $1,303,733. Other miscella-
neous income brought figures up
$19,749 for a 1.57 percent total
profit margin.
He said the legislature is talking
about a three percent increase in
Medicaid, however, they are not so
focused on nursing home. Olson
still stressed the need for everyone
to contact their legislators.
Regarding the Kadoka Clinic, he
said numbers were off a little this
year, but it was in Philip, too.
Olson thanked the entire staff
for all of their work.
President Larry Dolezal noted
that it’s good having Liz May in
He said in the future, the nurs-
ing home will need to look into pur-
chasing a new range for the
Dolezal also reminded everyone
that the board of directors meet the
third Monday of each month. “The
nurses reports are appreciated,” he
Sanftner noted that everyone
(employees and residents) at the
nursing home is like family and
many of the employees will pick up
things for the residents and not ex-
pect to be paid.
Dolezal congratulated Tom Terk-
ildsen for serving 10 years on the
board of directors and that Terkild-
sen was stepping down from the
Randi Oyan, who serves on the
nominating committee, said JoAnn
Letellier will serve another term
and that Marv Moor was interested
in serving on the board.
A motion carried to cast unani-
mous ballots for Letellier and Moor.
The meeting closed in prayer,
led by Dolezal.
The Kadoka Nursing Home As-
sociation held their annual meeting
Wednesday, January 23 with 20
members in attendance.
Secretary Jo Christensen’s min-
utes from last year’s meeting were
read and approved.
In the absence of Treasurer
JoAnn Letellier, Ruby Sanftner
gave the auxiliary report with an
opening statement balance of
$9,280.06 and by the end of the
year the balance was $8,940.98.
Income from the Holiday Festi-
val netted $7,218.59.
Expenses included $4,384.14 for
a sit/stand lift; $269.78 for Holiday
Festival supplies; $1,143.75 for
Holiday Festival expenses (food)
and $1,760.00 for KCBA Bucks

Linda Stilwell didn’t have high
numbers to report under the im-
provement fund with a checking
account balance of $72.61. How-
ever, she said she’s purchased more
new windows in the amount of
$11,000,00. They are sanded,
stained and ready to be installed
once the weather warms up.
Stilwell also noted that the foun-
dation checking account balance is
$416.00 and the fund account bal-
ance shows $24,852.21.
Taking the majority and very in-
formative portion of the meeting
was Ruby Sanftner’s year-end re-
She said the number of residents
has fluctuated this year between
28 and 30. However, in December
numbers dipped to 25. The nursing
home was sad to lose eight resi-
dents last year.
The Medicaid rate is still
$107.93 and the private rate in-
creased to $160.00 a day this year.
At this time there is no information
on rate changes for Medicaid.
The nursing home received a
one-time pass thru from the De-
partment of Social Services to be
used for staff salary adjustment. It
was used for one-time employee
bonuses based on longevity of
work. This was done during Na-
tional Nursing Home Week.

An attempt to set up misde-
meanor charges for adults who pro-
vide parties for under-age drinkers
failed to pass out of the Senate
State Affairs Committee Jan. 23 at
the S.D. Legislature in Pierre.
The measure failed by one vote,
following sometimes emotional de-
bate, but backers vowed to keep
working on the bill to make it ac-
ceptable to lawmakers.
Sen. Larry Lucas, D-Mission,
said there currently is no definition
for the term “social host,” but is
generally agreed that it refers to
someone who provides the location
but not necessarily the alcohol for
a party.
It is not a defense, said Lucas,
for the adult to say that he was not
present at the party.
Joyce Glynn, West River rancher
with her husband, Roger, related
the story of how their son, Michael,
lost his life following his 2006 high
school graduation and attending
the subsequent party where under-
age teens were drinking.
He died as the result of a one-ve-
hicle rollover where he was ejected
from the car.
That spring, Glynn said, 13
other teenagers died under similar
President Obama, noted Glynn,
has said that “the first task of soci-

She questioned whether we are

She discussed the three compo-
nents to keep children safe as edu-
cation, legislation and
enforcement. It is clear, she said,
that it is illegal for anyone under
the age of 21 to drink alcohol, and

provides nursing home and as-
sisted living care for state veterans
and their spouses.
The state is building a new Vet-
erans Home, for which funding al-
ready has been approved. The
official ground breaking is sched-
uled for this spring, Daugaard said.
Closing the federal VA Hospital
affects about 300 employees in the
Hot Springs area, he said, and
would make such services as dialy-
sis and mobile CAT scan more dif-
ficult for vets to access.
Criminal justice reform
The Governor also discussed the
progress of one of his favored proj-
ects, the criminal justice reform
He said he was glad to see he
strong support the bill received in
committee and in the Legislature
as a whole. For the most part, he
said, legislators have agreed that it
is worthy of their support.
If enacted, Daugaard said, the
program will improve public safety
and hold people accountable for
their actions.
He reminded that 80 percent of
the people put in prison are not vi-
olent. Working through the Drug
and Alcohol Court programs, he
said, people will learn how to be
Economic development
Growing the state’s existing
businesses is perhaps the most
fruitful of economic development
activities, said Daugaard.
The other two ways are to start
a business or bring a business in
from another state. But 70 percent
of the time, he said, it is most fruit-
ful to grow an existing business.
Many times, he said, the lack of
a state income tax is not always the
best incentive, since there are
other, more immediate incentives
that take priority in the choice
In the case of Bel Brands, the
large cheese operation relocating to
Brookings, Daugaard said, there
are huge depreciation deductions,
which completely offset income for
the next number of years.
The expiration of the contrac-
tor’s excise tax redemption needs to
be addressed, the governor said.
That had been a tax on the service
of the contractor, and half of it has
been given back on large projects.
A replacement measure passed
by the Legislature last year was re-
ferred and defeated by voters in
November. The Governor said he
wants any new incentives to be a
bipartisan effort.

The battle continues to save the
federal Veterans Administration
Hospital in Hot Springs from clo-
Gov. Dennis Daugaard told a
South Dakota Newspaper Associa-
tion group Jan. 24 that he had just
returned from Hot Springs where
he met with the Save the VA Com-
mittee. A presentation is planned
next month in Washington, D.C.,
he said. The three members of
South Dakota’s Congressional del-
egation, Daugaard and committee
members plan to meet with the
head of the Veterans Administra-
tion, he said, to voice their opposi-
tion to the closing.
The announcement of the possi-
ble closing of the facility at Hot
Springs came in December 2011.
Relocation of some of the services
to Rapid City was opposed by
The VA Hospital, said Daugaard,
includes an acute care clinic, hos-
pice care, outpatient clinic and
pharmacy. It also includes a drug
and alcohol treatment domiciliary,
as well as treatment for post-trau-
matic stress syndrome.
It should not be confused, he
said, with the State Veterans
Home, also in Hot Springs, that

teleconferences conducted by
elected officials are subject to open
meeting laws, elected officials can
now have a similar group conversa-
tion via email or text and there is
nothing that makes that conversa-
tion open and public. Common
sense says that's just not right.
Conceivably, an entire agenda
for an elected body could be dis-
cussed using email or text messag-
ing. While that's unlikely, here's
one example of what could happen.
An email goes out to the full school
board and asks for comments about
a proposal to phase out the dis-
trict's art program. Everyone is in-
vited to share his or her views.
Everyone weighs in and a majority
agrees that the district can no
longer afford to fund the art pro-
As the law now stands, the pub-
lic is excluded from observing that
discussion. And while no official ac-
tion can be taken until the board
meets in an official session, the dis-
cussion that led to the decision re-
mains hidden from public view. The
board meets, votes and since the
entire discussion was conducted by
email, no one knows what led to
the decision; there's no official
record of that discussion.
Common sense says that's just
not right.
Elected officials have accepted
the framework in which they do the
people's business for decades. That
includes notice of meetings, posted
agendas and holding those meet-
ings in public. It's at the heart of
how we function as a democracy
and as a republic.
A changing world requires adap-
tation. That's something the 33-
member task force, which included
representatives of news organiza-
tions, state officials, law enforce-
ment officials, prosecutors, and
officials from cities, counties and
school districts, recognized last
summer. That's why it recom-
mended including "electronic text
colloquy" in open meetings and
records laws. And that is why the
governor and attorney general
have moved this legislation for-
Speaking to newspaper editors
last week, Gov. Daugaard spoke
about the importance of this issue.
When people think of teleconfer-
ence, Daugaard said "You're think-
ing of someone on the phone. But if
you're texting each other and
you're replying to all, really, if you
think about it, that's no different.
It's just a different way of chatting
back and forth and those should be
subject to the open meeting notices
and the texts would need to be an
open record."
Gov. Daugaard clearly gets it.
Now it's up to our legislators.
The measure gained a slim 7-6
approval from the House State Af-
fairs Committee last week and is
headed for a vote by all representa-
tives in the House. Contact your
representatives and tell them to
vote yes on HB 1113. You can call
them at 773-3851 or you can find
contact information on the S.D.
Legislative Research Council's
HB 1113 deserves full support in
the House and then the Senate. Re-
gardless of technological advances
and forms of communication, the
principle of open and public debate
is critical. Our legislators need to
know that we, the people, expect
nothing less than full support to
maintain that ideal.
It's a matter of common sense.

By Tim L. Waltner
Remarkable technological ad-
vances in recent years have
changed the way we do countless
things. Phones once tethered to
walls have become portable devices
that are now wireless hand-held
computers. Financial transactions
no longer require cash, checks or,
increasingly, plastic cards. GPS
systems have made asking for di-
rections obsolete. Cameras no
longer require film.
Technology has dramatically al-
tered virtually every aspect of our
lives. We communicate with each
other in ways that only a few years
ago seemed to be science fiction.
That has touched our personal
lives as well as the way we do busi-
ness. And that includes the way in
which government operates.
That reality led the Open Gov-
ernment Task Force convened last
year by Gov. Dennis Daugaard and
Attorney General Marty Jackley to
recommend including new methods
of communication in the trans-
parency and accountability that
are the bedrock of open govern-
ment. The result is HB 1113, which
expands the definition of telecon-
ference "to include certain meet-
ings conducted through electronic
text colloquy and to require the re-
tention of certain records of text
colloquy meetings for public inspec-
"Colloquy" is a legal-technical
term meaning discussion. Don't let
the word throw you; it's simply con-
versation. If an email goes out to
the mayor and full city council, a
school board or a county commis-
sion and asks for them to reply to
the group, that's a conversation. If
they were having that conversation
- all of them face to face - that
would be an official meeting - open
and public. But, as of now, if it's
email or text, it's not public.
While the law already says that
HB 1113 matches up
transparency, technology

Jeremiah 29:11-13
Unlike God’s “determined will,” His “desired will” is
resistible and conditional. We have a choice to do things
our way or His. The Lord designs a specific plan utiliz-
ing a believer’s unique gifts and talents for the king-
dom. He wants to share His desired will so that we can live successfully.
First, God wants us to follow the moral laws, like the Ten Commandments, which apply to everyone.
Throughout Scripture, we find principles that can add joy and meaning to our lives, such as the instruc-
tion always to give thanks and put aside bitterness in favor of forgiveness.(1 Thess. 5:18; Eph. 4:31-32)
Following those basic principles lets us discover the second part of God’s desired will—His intentions
for our personal life. One good example is vocation. Before our birth, God predestined us to have specific
skills, talents, and spiritual gifts, which suit us for certain types of work. Our vocation may change, but
with divine guidance, our work will consistently “fit” us.
Finally, God’s desired will is active in our daily life. What interests us interests Him, no matter how
trivial. For example, we’ve all sent up desperate prayers when we couldn’t locate something we needed.
Often we find the object within moments because a caring Father leads us right to it.
The Lord wants to work in our life, and He’ll send blessings if we follow Him. Remember, He’s a loving
Father; what’s more, He is all-knowing and all-powerful—that is an unbeatable combination, no matter
what comes against us. It is impossible to get less than the best when we do things His way.

Vivian Livermont _________________
Vivian G. Livermont, 97, of
Rapid City died Friday, January
25, 2013 at a local nursing home.
Vivian was born March 13, 1915
in Fairfax, SD, to Leo and Matilda
(Brendan) Redmond, the youngest
of eight children.
She married Paul Lester Liver-
mont on August 22, 1936, in
Kadoka. The couple lived around
Vetal and Tuthill, SD, until they
moved to a ranch near Wanblee,
SD in 1943.
For many years, Vivian was an
active member of the Wanblee
Ladies Aid Society.
Vivian was famous for her cook-
ing, especially her cookies. One
year she made dozens and dozens
of cookies, which she gave away as
Christmas presents. Her specialty
was molasses cookies.
Vivian’s greatest love was her
family and friends. She was a spe-
cial lady to all who knew her.

Trust can be a fragile commod-
ity. Take the cooking island in our
kitchen, for example. It looks nice
and solid just like the other
kitchen cupboards, but it has one
major difference in that it’s on
wheels. In other words, if you lean
against it too hard, it’s apt to
move. This can be unsettling. It
might mean you have to make
some quick adjustments to avoid
falling on the floor. Nasty. One
eventually learns not to trust the
thing but probably not until after
you’ve had a few tense moments.
Sometimes in this life, it is
tricky to decide what or who you
can trust. Do you, for instance,
trust your current car or pickup to
always get you where you want to
go? Our vehicles, right now, appear
to be fairly trustworthy since they
aren’t terribly old and haven’t been
driven excessive miles. As you
know, any vehicle can turn obnox-
ious in the blink of an eye, but you
can often depend on those that
aren’t too ancient and have been
properly maintained.
I think of one vehicle I had,
though, that I shouldn’t have
trusted as much as I did. One
evening I drove it at the speed
limit on the freeway for over a
hundred miles only to have the
front wheel fall off as I neared
home. When it dropped, I was
barely moving since I had slowed
for a sharp corner on our country
roads. It still gave me quite a jolt,
especially when I considered what
might have happened had that
wheel gone when I was speeding
down those steep river hills on the
freeway. It didn’t bear thinking
about. I was pleased to still be
moving and breathing.
Sometimes, too, I’ve put faith in
certain people that didn’t deserve
it. There was that one time some
years ago when I took in cattle for
a fellow who turned out to be very
difficult to deal with. Not only did
he hate to pay his bills, but he also
failed to move his cattle out at the
time we had previously agreed on.
It was with some relief when that
association was at last over. Since
then I’ve been blessed with other
cattle deals that have worked out
well for all concerned, but such has
not always been the case. Maybe
I’ve learned who to deal with and
who to leave strictly alone.
My good-Samaritan complex
has also landed me in trouble a
time or three. One fellow I tried to
help many years ago ended up rip-
ping me off for several thousand
dollars. He took all my belongings
of any worth and pawned them. He
also depleted my bank account,
which wasn’t very large at the
time, by forging my signature.
After he’d run off with my assets
and been gone a while, he called
one day and wanted me to help
him some more. He was out of luck
by then. He’d given me a harsh les-
son, but I’d learned through it, or
at least I had in his particular
case. I don’t mind helping people
but not when they flat out steal
from me.
Fortunately, my immediate
family has always been composed
of good people. Everyone makes
mistakes, but that can be over-
looked if the intensions are honor-
able. I wouldn’t do any business
with some of my slightly more dis-
tant relatives, but those closest to
me are fine. With those who have
lived or worked on the ranch, some
have been more competent and
useful than others, but we’ve had
lots of good guys helping us. None
that I know of have set out pur-
posely to defraud or harm us, and
some have been or are truly excel-
lent fellows to have around.
Here’s a quote you might like.
“Raisin cookies that look like
chocolate-chip cookies are the
main reason I have trust issues.”
Not everything is what it seems.
It’s not that I don’t like raisin cook-
ies, it’s just that I like chocolate
chippers more and am disap-
pointed when finding I’ve taken a
raisin thinking it was a chipper.
The same principle can have wider
What else can we trust in? One
probably shouldn’t put much hope
in winning the lottery as a means
of support. The odds are greatly
stacked against us there. How
about the government? Iffy, don’t
you think? Some doctors and
lawyers are dependable. Others
not so much. I suppose we’ll have
to just go along trying to put faith
in those people and things that de-
serve it as far as we can tell and
avoiding those that don’t. We can
also trust God to help us know the
difference. After all, he is com-
pletely trustworthy, has our best
interests in mind, and has the
wherewithal and strength to see
us through. It’s a very great bless-
ing to have him on our side.
Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
Jodie O’Bryan is sporting some
hoof-shaped bruises this week after
her horse fell at the first barrel at
a barrel-racing event in Rapid City.
Then, when the horse stood up and
tried to regain its balance, it
stepped on her some. As a result,
her ear was hurt and some ribs
were cracked. In other words, Jodie
is making no fast moves. She did,
however, manage to show and sell
one of her horses at the stock show
in Rapid City. This involved a cou-
ple of twelve-hour days grooming
and showing the horse and moving
it back and forth between the event
center and civic center. Jodie was
pleased that the horse sold to a gal
from North Dakota that she’d
helped at Rodeo Bible Camp maybe
sixteen or so years ago. That gal is
now married and has some kids.
She is married to a fellow who went
to college with Jodie’s son, Taylor.
Scot O’Bryan also showed some
horses for clients at the stock show.
Other local people showing horses
or at the show included Jesse Carl-
son, Jamie Willert, Levi Grimes
and Austin Grimes. While the
O’Bryans were in Rapid, Cella
Baldwin came over and took care of
the dog.
Bud and Valene Perault had
supper on Sunday evening at Mike,
Marlene and Bert Perault’s. Other
than that, things have been fairly
quiet for the Peraults. Marlene
said her mom, Lillian Carlson, got
out of the Philip hospital on
Wednesday after spending about
ten days there. She is doing better
now, the proof of which was that
she was back to cooking on Sunday.
She was also eating better. Mar-
lene visited her most days in the
hospital to check on how she was
doing, bring her what she needed,
etc. Lillian doesn’t plan on doing
any day care for kids in the next
week and will just see how things
go after that.
Chuck Fortune said he got to
rope a couple of calves this week to
treat them for such things as foot
rot and pneumonia, but otherwise
things have been quiet over their
MaKaylan Bonenberger reports
that they had nine calves already
on Sunday including one of hers.
Her mom, Nikki, added that the
heifers weren’t due to calve until
February first but decided to get a
jump on things. The nice weather
has made that okay. On Saturday,
MaKaylan and her grandmother,
Pam Bonenberger, went to Mitchell
where they helped MaKaylan’s
aunt, Alisha, celebrate her birth-
day. On Sunday, they watched Al-
isha’s daughter, Joslin, participate
in a cheerleading conference before
they returned home.
Betty Kusick caught a ride south
to Wanblee on Wednesday with
Crystal Paulson. She visited Joe
Livermont a while before Crystal
came back from teaching and
picked her up. On Thursday, her
daughters, Loretta and Kathy,
came, and Kathy gave Betty a per-
manent. Loretta returned on Sun-
day but was delayed long enough
that she told Betty she had time to
take in the potluck dinner at the
church hall after church, so Betty
did. Betty said her son, Kenny, was
scheduled for a bit of surgery at the
Eye Institute in Rapid City this
week. This is supposed to correct a
problem with Kenny’s eye lashes
being too long, curling into the eye,
and irritating it.
Larry Dolezal led the church
service at Interior on Sunday as he
often does on the last Sunday of
each month. Larry and Joy often
continue on to Wall for dinner after
church at Interior, but this month
Larry came back to Belvidere right
after church there for the annual
congregational meeting and
potluck at Belvidere. Joy said she
has been babysitting her grandson,
Travis Dolezal, some lately while
his mom, Jamie, works with county
health in food distribution, etc.
Travis usually stays with Lillian
Carson on the three days a week
Jamie works, but Lillian has been
in the hospital lately and not able
to do day care. Joy also helps at Re-
lease Time in Kadoka most
Greg and Dana Badure and kids
were visited on Saturday by Eric
and Pam Osborn,and Pam’s daugh-
ter, Syd Beth. Eric continued the
project of shoring up floors. Greg
said he was able to beat Eric at
bowling on the video Wii game.
Greg and Dana currently have
Dana’s niece, Felicia, and her four-
month-old daughter, Isabella, stay-
ing with them. Felicia is from
Maine, but has visited here often
and is a good friend of Brianna
Badure. Greg said that his brother,
Bax, has made some tooled-leather
saddlebags to be used for the Stock-
grower fundraiser connected with
the stock show in Rapid City. This
weekend, Bax, Carol, and Kianna
went to a gun show in Winner.
There was an extremely old gun on
sale that Bax had his eye on. Un-
fortunately, it sold for more than
Bax was willing to pay.
Marie Addison was visited by
her daughter, Teresa Walker, of
Gillette, WY, this weekend. The
gals visited Jean and Dave Cal-
hoon on Saturday. On Sunday, they
took in church in Belvidere plus the
potluck dinner and annual meeting
after church. Marie was visited last
weekend by her daughter, Rena.
Rena had a birthday about then,
but thought she could get by with
the many tins of cookies Marie had
sitting around, and a big cake was
not necessary. Rena wanted to
know how to make Marie’s fudge
recipe so Marie gave her some les-
sons. Teresa planned to stay
overnight with Rena in Rapid City
on Sunday before returning to
Gillette on Monday. Marie said she
gained another great granddaugh-
ter recently when Shirley Doud’s
daughter, Alison Crago, of
Wyoming gave birth to a girl they
named, Shae.
In South Dakota, we value the
outdoors. Our economy is based on
agriculture. Our heritage is based
on outdoor activities – hunting
pheasants, fishing in the Missouri
River, camping in our state parks,
and enjoying the beauty of the
Black Hills. We invest in the out-
doors and create assets that will be
passed on to future generations.
This year, I am asking the Leg-
islature to invest in three projects
that will strengthen our outdoor
heritage: a new state park at Blood
Run in Lincoln County, an exten-
sion to the Mickelson Trail, and a
new visitor center at Custer State
First, I am proposing that we
create our 13th state park at Blood
Run in Lincoln County. This will be
South Dakota’s first new state park
in 40 years. The Blood Run site
southeast of Sioux Falls has a his-
tory over the centuries as a place
for trade and peaceful gathering of
Native American tribes. The pris-
tine oak forest on the rolling banks
of the Big Sioux River will provide
new opportunities for education
and recreation in a place of beauty
and cultural significance.
As a second initiative, I am pro-
posing an extension from the Mick-
elson Trail to Mount Rushmore.
This extension will allow hikers
and bikers to approach our Shrine
of Democracy on a winding trail
through a wilderness area of the
Black Hills. A parallel track will
also accommodate horseback rid-
ers. The Mickelson Trail is already
one of our nation’s finest hiking
and biking trails, and linking it
with Mount Rushmore will make it
even more outstanding.
Finally, I am proposing a new
visitor center at Custer State Park.
The facility will include a theater
where visitors can learn about all
the features and opportunities for
experiences that are found in
Custer State Park. Other parks
using such an introductory tool
have found that visitors will
lengthen their stays if they are ed-
ucated about all the offerings in the
park. Our Custer State Park is a
true jewel, on par with many na-
tional parks, but visitors will some-
times overlook the breadth of its
offerings. A new visitor center will
help avoid this, and encourage
tourists to stay longer.
Because of our state’s balanced
budget and strong economy, we are
fortunate that South Dakota is in a
position to invest in these projects.
Our Game, Fish, and Parks De-
partment estimates that these
three projects, once built, will be
profitable – that is, the visitor fees
they generate will cover the costs of
the parks and help fund South
Dakota’s other state parks.
South Dakota’s love for the out-
doors is something that we must
pass on to our children and grand-
children. As we are able, we should
invest in projects that will be as-
sets for generations to come.

and Bill and Marjorie Letellier in
Philip on Tuesday. It was nice to
see Marjorie’s apartment in the Sil-

Philip, SD 57567. Marjorie would
love to have you drop by for a visit
anytime, too.
Susan Taft and daughters,

Wednesday evening.
I talked to JaLynn at Sunshine
Bible Academy the other day and
she said, it was 21 degrees and just

her it was 50 here. On Monday it

above freezing.
Happy belated birthday wishes

The furnace guy has been busy
at the Robert and Sharon Ring
home. He and Torey were dinner
guests on Thursday.
Thursday, James and Marjorie
Letellier went to Pierre and then
continued on to Sunshine Bible
Academy for the wrestling triple
dual between Plankinton/ Mt.Ver-
non/ Corsica Titans and the Wess-
ington Springs/ Woonsocket/
Wolsey-Wessington Blackhawks.
Both grandsons, DJ Beckwith and
Beaver Burma, wrestled and Jason
Burma is the coach for SBA. It was
parents’ night and the first sports
event in the beautiful new gym.
Folks might be interested to know
that Curtis Huffman of Wessington
Springs (formerly of Kadoka) was a
referee at both wrestling events we
went to this week. I asked him “Are
you the marathon runner? My
grandchildren are beginning to be-
lieve that all good runners come
from Kadoka.” It sure shocks the
grandchildren when the grandma
recognizes the referee. Seventh
grader, Matt Terkildsen, was on
the roster at 160 lbs. for the Black-
hawks, too.
Friday, Christine Dunham en-
joyed a visit with Maxine Allard be-
fore heading to White River for the
basketball games.
Norris School News: The Nor-
ris school had a strange and unfor-
gettable visitor on Wednesday,
when the Elementary Principal
Cella Hermsen of White River ar-
rived with “Usher.” “Usher”
brought squeals of delight as he
began getting acquainted with the
students as he was escorted from
class to class. “Usher” is a real live
pot-bellied pig!
The Norris school started the
third quarter on January 21.
Morgan Taft caught a ride into
White River for the middle school
basketball games on Friday and
worked the concession stand. Later
that evening Susan went in to the
games and brought her home.
Friday, many folks from this
area attended the middle school
and high school boys basketball
games in White River. There were
six basketball games going there
that evening. White River Middle
School hosted Lyman County in the
little gym while the WR High
School Tigers boys were playing
the Pine Ridge Thorpes in the big
auditorium. We went at 4 o’clock
and still didn’t see all the kids we
went to watch play! Norris is well
represented on all the different
teams. White River girls were play-
ing at Lower Brule that night, too.
I dare say, you could get in on a
basketball game anytime you want
to in White River, even a practice
would be fun to see.
Saturday, Marjorie Anne Letel-
lier accompanied Julie Letellier of
Kilgore, NE, and Sue Larson of
Rapid City to a wrestling meet at
Onida. They arrived just in time to
find out that DJ Beckwith had won
his first match, but injured his
shoulder in the effort so was unable
to wrestle the rest of the day. The
gals visited in the Paul and Lu-
Anne Beckwith home at Pierre be-
fore returning home.
Andee Beckwith visited her par-
ents in Pierre on Sunday to help
her dad, Paul, celebrate his birth-

Editor’s Note: The following
was recently emailed to Quilts With
Hello, my name is Major David
T. Rasmussen (Wanda Swan’s
grandson) and I am currently de-
ployed to Afghanistan with the
United States Air Force.
I wanted to send a personal
thank you for your act of kindness
by sending the quilts. I understand
the time, effort and attention that
it must take to make these quilts
and then send them to deployed
troops. It is a very nice touch to re-
ceive something that makes the
conditions over here a bit more like
home. I can say that they arrived
at a perfect time, as it was snowing
this morning and we are seeing
overnight temps in the 20s right
now, and the predictions of below
zero temps through the winter
I have attached a photo of my
new quilt on my bunk and one of
me so that you have a face to go
with this email.
I thought long and hard at how
to say thank you in a manner that
is appropriate for an act of kind-
ness such as them. I couldn’t get
my words to truly express my feel-
ings … but I found these quotes
that better stated what I was try-
ing to say.

appreciation for quilt

Looking at the origins of the
phrase “Luck of the Draw” you’ll
find a number of references related
to cards. If you ask a cowboy they
will tell you that it is indeed de-
rived from gambling, just not the
kind you do at a table. Dating back
to when the West was a wild fron-
tier what kind of mount a cowboy
had could determine everything.
Through the years as the cowboy
has moved from the frontier to the
arena, this fact has remained the
same. As the 36th Annual Black
Hills Stock Show and Rodeo® gets
ready to kick off, the Professional
Rodeo Cowboys Association has re-
leased the stock line-up for the five
performance rodeos that will take
place over the next two weeks and
there are some pairings that
shouldn’t be missed.
Bareback Riding Preview: With
a field that includes the two-time
reining PRCA World Champion
Kaycee Feild, former World Cham-
pion Bobby Mote, PBR veteran
Ross Coleman, and a number of
WNFR qualifiers it could be any-
one’s game. Look for Utah cowboy
Kaycee Feild to open up the PRCA
rodeo on Saturday afternoon with
a strong score aboard the Burns
Rodeo bareback horse High Plains
while facing some competition in
Texas cowboy Clint Cannon on
Burch Rodeos’ Hard Luck. As the
rodeo moves into the second week-
end the top scores could be chal-
lenged by the following: Utah
cowboy Caleb Bennett aboard
Burch Rodeos’ Angel Dust, North
Dakota cowboy Casey Breuer on
Bar C5’s WNFR bareback Make-
Up Face, Minnesota cowboy Tan-
ner Aus on Sutton Rodeo’s WNFR
horse South Point.

ary 2nd, Texas cowboy Ross Cole-
man a Professional Bull Riding
World Finalist will be testing his
skills in a new event aboard Sutton

make a strong showing.
Saddle Bronc Riding Preview:
South Dakota is breeding ground
for both the cowboy and livestock
legends of Saddle Bronc Riding.
With names like Tibbs, Etbauer
and Tipperary there are some big
shoes to fill for anyone daring to
compete in this event. This year’s
field of contestants includes a num-
ber of South Dakotan’s who are
looking to become legends includ-
ing former PRCA World Champi-
ons Chad Ferley and Jeff Willert
along with a number of WNFR
Qualifiers, including: Jesse Bail,
Red Lemmel, Cody Taton, Chuck

mer PRCA World Champion Cody
Wright, WNFR Qualifier Jake
Wright, Alex Wright and Spencer

testants. Thursday night January
31st, Cody Taton takes on Bar C5’s
Buckskin Sal. Saturday night, Feb-
ruary 2nd, Minnesota cowboy Tyler
Corrington will try and take the
round aboard Bar C5’s Biff, but it if

for Saddle Bronc Champion would
be Texas cowboy Bradley Harter

some of the best cowboys the PRCA
has to offer with 9 of the 12 man

Philip cowboy Jace Nelson will try
and take on Sutton Rodeos’ PRCA
Saddle Bronc Horse of the Year and
WNFR Horse of the Finals, Chuck-
ulator. Jace comes from a ranching
family that includes a long line of
champions and it will be a good
show watching him try to ride this
beast; if he can stay on for eight
seconds the score could be big. Sat-
urday afternoon, February 2nd,
former PRCA World Champion
Jesse Kruse is joined by WNFR
Qualifiers Sam Kelts and Tyrell
Smith along with Canadian Cham-
pion Luke Butterfield.
Bull Riding Preview: Bull Riding
is normally referred to as a young
man’s sport but in 2013 Rapid City
will be welcoming a host of veter-
ans along with some young stars.
As the rodeo moves into the second
weekend it will be CBR Champion
and 2011 WNFR Qualifier &
Rookie of the Year Chandler
Bownds looking to continue his hot
streak against Burch Rodeos’ bull

surgery that kept him sidelined
most of the 2012 season and looks
hungry to compete. Friday night,

gen Schuelke will look to make a
mark aboard Burch Rodeos’ Zombie
Zoo and if he can make the whistle
will face some stiff competition as
veteran cowboys Ardie Maier and
Clayton Savage are both out that
Best of the rest: Thursday, Jan-

Marjorie "Marge" Thomas Ham-

Marge was born December 2,
1930, in Chamberlain, South

Belvidere, South Dakota, but her
mother wanted her birthed by the
same doctor who had birthed her.
Marge's youth was spent in
Belvidere, South Dakota, where
she graduated from high school in
1948. She then went to business
college in Milwaukee, Minnesota,
for two years.
She was married at age twenty

All good, right? Yes, except that
some schools are now putting re-
strictions and limitations on how
the local news media can cover
their school sporting events and ac-
In Pierre, an exclusive contract
between the school and a local
radio station prohibits a competing
local radio station or the local
newspaper from broadcasting
Pierre school athletic events. How-
ever, the restrictions don't apply to
any out-of-town news media out-
In Sioux Falls, the public school
district sought to specifically pro-
hibit the local newspaper from
broadcasting high school football
and basketball games on the inter-
Elsewhere, newspaper photogra-
phers are being unreasonably re-
stricted on how they can cover high
school competitions. Reporters are
limited on how they can use social
media such as Twitter and Face-
book to report live from a high
school game.
Schools offer a variety of reasons
for these restrictions. Mostly, it
boils down to money. Schools look-
ing to make additional revenue
from the performances of students
on the field by placing restrictions
on how the local news media may
cover these events.
Incredible as it may sound, there
is a real trend toward more mone-
tization of high school sports.
That is why we are working for
passage of a bill in this legislative
session that would prohibit schools
from unreasonably restricting the
ability of local news media to do
their job. Senate Bill 119 would not
prohibit schools from generating
revenue through certain contracts
with media, so long as those con-
tracts do not restrict other media
from being able to do their job.
SB119 is not about creating any
special or new privilege for news
media in South Dakota. It only
tries to ensure the news media in
South Dakota can do what they
have always done when it comes to
reporting about high school sports
and activities.
Fans and supporters of high
school sports and activities expect
the local news media to be there,
creating a chronology and scrap-
book of memories and achieve-
ments through their stories, photos
and other media.
Urge your legislators to support
Senate Bill 119. Let's make sure
the hometown news media can con-
tinue to do their job and live up to
the expectations of their readers
and viewers. Nothing more, noth-
ing less.

High school football games
under Friday night lights and bas-
ketball gyms jam-packed with fans
are as much a part of South Dakota
as coffee-shop talk about the
weather and crops. High school
sports and other interscholastic ac-
tivities such as drama and music
events fuel intense civic pride in
our communities and schools.
The feats and accomplishments
of students on the field of competi-
tion or the performance stage are
celebrated by an entire community
of family, friends and school fans.
The hometown newspaper is
there as well, chronicling the
games and school activities. Cover-
ing local school sports and school
activities such as plays and con-
certs are a big part of what goes
into the local newspaper. The com-
munity expects it and a good news-
paper meets that expectation.
Technology today has allowed
newspapers to expand the tools
they use to cover high school sports
and events. Newspapers are going
beyond the traditional stories and
photos printed in the paper to in-
novations such as broadcasting
football or basketball games over
the internet and updating readers
through social media tools. Read-
ers have come to expect that type
of expanded coverage and newspa-

two halves,” said coach Reiman.
“We came out early and played
strong for the first half of the game.
On defense we were moving well
and challenging every shot. Offen-
sively we found the open man and
took care of the ball well. Then in
the third quarter we didn’t show
up. We were outscored 25 to 4. In

selves together and finished the
game well.”

bers present. Also present were Dwight

Dwight Deaver reported that Eric Grop-
per is assisting in moving a building from

the crew is working on a bridge, and that
a mowing tractor has been leased at
$5.00 per hour. He also informed the

Dwight Deaver reported that he had con-
tacted Veryl Prokop about closing the old
section of CS 29 as instructed by the
board. He reported that Veryl Prokop re-
quested to meet with the board.
Veryl Prokop met with the board con-
cerning closing of the old section of CS
29 now that the new section of the road
is built. Deputy States Attorney, Chip
Kemnitz, was present. Veryl Prokop in-
formed the board he didn’t feel the
county should be moving any dirt or dig-
ging ditches in the area of the old road
as it will cause more erosion. He in-
formed the board that the old section of
road will be gone the next time the river
comes up. He informed the board he has
done some work for drainage in that
area. Chip Kemnitz informed the board
that state statute requires a petition be
filed, notice of public hearing given, and
a resolution of the board’s actions for
adding or vacating county roads. The
board informed Chip Kemnitz that the
White River is washing the road out, that
Veryl Prokop granted the county ease-
ment to construct a new section of road,
that the new section of road has been
built, and all has been documented in the
minutes. Chip Kemnitz advised that the
county place “Road Closed” signs at
each end of the old section of road, and
that Veryl Prokop place “No Trespassing”
signs at each end of the old section of
road. Chip Kemnitz also advised that the
board adopt a resolution stating the old
section of the road is closed, and the new
section of road is built.
Veryl Prokop reported that the grade of
the hill on the new section of road is ex-
tremely steep, and with the curve around
the electric power pole, you are not able
to get a run at the hill. He reported of two
incidents he is aware of where persons
have slid off the hill, and stated the hill
needs to be lowered. He informed the
board he has gotten feed delivered in by
using the old section of road. Bennett
contacted Brosz Engineering by phone
and inquired as to whether there are any
limitations on percentage of grade. He
was told that the road needs to be signed
as to the percentage of the grade, and
speed limit set at lower rate.
Discussion was held on size of signs and
placement of signs for closing the old
section of road. Veryl Prokop informed
the board he could place a large fallen
tree across the road on the east end of
the old section of road. Veryl Prokop
stated he does not want a barricade
placed on the west end of the old road,
as should other persons slide off the road
on the steep hill they would hit it. He
again urged the county to lower the
grade of the hill on the new section of
road before someone gets hurt.
A resolution was drafted closing the old
section of CS 29 and building the new
section of CS 29. Stilwell moved, Denke

The South Dakota State Library
Board got the first official look at
this year’s school and public library
Data Digests.
“The digests include vital infor-
mation about the services being
provided at libraries across the
state,” said Interim State Librarian
Daria Bossman. “The State Library
collects the data through various
surveys and compiles it in one loca-
tion to highlight the significant
roles that libraries play in their
Survey response rates were out-
standing this year, and Bossman
said that indicates library person-
nel see the value of the information
in the digests. One-hundred per-
cent of school libraries and 98 per-
cent of the state’s 112 public
community libraries responded.
This is the third year that the
State Library has compiled a data
digest that is specific to school li-
braries. On an average day, school
libraries circulate 33,853 items,
host 1,150 class groups and wel-
come 35,609 students independ-
Superintendents, principals and
school librarians can access their
specific statistics online and see
how their school libraries compare
to others in the state. Please con-
tact the State Library’s school coor-
dinators, 1-800-423-6665 for more
The State Library has compiled
and published the Public Library
Data Digest for the past five years.
However, the State Library is re-
quired to submit these statistics to
the Institute of Museum and Li-
brary Services every year and has
been doing so for several decades.
National databases and compari-
son tools are also freely available
on the IMLS website at https://har-
South Dakotans collectively
checked out an average of 17,149
items a day in 2011 at those li-
braries. Public librarians also an-
swered 1,157 reference questions
and assisted 3,213 online users in
an average day.

ther. The cost for this system inspection
is $700.00. The council at that meeting
also stated that they wanted to know
what individuals and/or groups would be
interested in assisting with funding the in-
spection proposal. Mr. Fugate contacted
the Kadoka Area School Board and they

ious individuals to discuss issues related
to the water department. Stolley made
Motion 13-01-14:6 to sign the contract
with Maguire Iron which will ensure that
we are included on their work schedule;
the motion is contingent upon receipt of

SDSU Extension, the City of
Faith and area producers would
like to invite you to attend the 36th
Annual Rancher's Forum and Sec-
ond Annual Pen of Three Bull
Showcase at the Faith Salebarn on
February 7 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The theme for the day is "Health,
Nutrition and the Economics that
tie them together."
Adele Harty, SDSU Extension
Cow/Calf Field Specialist will begin
the morning with a presentation on
alternative feed sources and the
considerations that need to be made
when including them in a feeding
program. Harty has worked for
SDSU Extension since 2005. She
earned her Master of Science De-
gree from North Dakota State Uni-
versity in Ruminant Nutrition,
with a specific focus on cow/calf nu-
trition. She is located in the Rapid
City Regional Extension Center.
Gary Sides, nutritionist with
Pfizer Animal Health will then give
a presentation on the relationship
between nutrition and immunology.
His talk will focus on the fact that
it's not as simple as giving calves a
vaccination so they will be able to
fend off diseases. There are many
other factors, specifically nutrition
that play a role in the success or
failure of a vaccination program.
Sides has extensive beef indus-
try nutrition experience, compiling
20 years with organizations such as
Intervet / Hoechst-Russell Vet,
Cargill Animal Nutrition and Moor-
man Manufacturing Company. Be-
fore putting his nutritional
expertise to work for Pfizer and
beef producers, Sides spent two
years as a livestock extension spe-
cialist with Texas A&M University,
located in Fort Stockton, Texas. Ad-
ditionally, Sides was a research sci-
entist with Utah State University.
Based in Lima, Peru, he worked in
the Andes Mountains above 14,000-
feet elevation, studying the repro-
ductive and nutritional
characteristics of South American
ruminants. He also taught at La
Molina Agricultural University in
Lima. Dr. Sides currently lives in
Sterling, Colo.
To round out the program, Jack
Davis, SDSU Extension Economics
Field Specialist will tie it all to-
gether by talking about how the de-
cisions producers make affect their
bottom line. Strategic planning for
family farms and ranches as well as
financial analysis are major areas
of interest for Davis. He spent his
undergraduate years at South
Dakota State University, where he
graduated with a B.S. in Agricul-
tural Business. He later earned a
M.S. from the University of South
Dakota in the area of Business Ad-
ministration. Davis is based out of
the Mitchell Regional Extension
The other main event during the
day is the Pen of Three Bull Show-
case. This will take place in the sale
ring from 12:30-2:30 p.m. with par-
ticipants having an opportunity to
preview bulls from area producers.
This is a non-competitive show, just
a chance for producers and current
or potential customers to get to-
gether before bull sale season hits
full swing. If you are interested in
showing your bulls in the Pen of
Three Bull Showcase, contact Ty
Dieters 605-748-2404.
There will be a trade show set up
as well as door prize drawings
throughout the day.
There is a registration fee for the
event and preregistration by Feb. 4
is strongly encouraged. To preregis-
ter, call the City of Faith Office at
605-967-2261. The meal is spon-
sored by Pfizer Animal Health.
36th Annual Faith Rancher's Forum
and Pen of Three Bull Showcase
SDSU Extension's Growing Ag
CEO's program begins Feb. 5 in
Belle Fourche at the Rancher
Ag CEO's focuses on teaching be-
ginning farmers to use a systems
approach to farm business plan-
ning. The program will be held on
four consecutive Tuesdays, ending
Feb. 26. An additional session will
be held March 5 for producers inter-
ested in obtaining FSA Borrower
Training credits. Each session will
run from 5:30 p.m. to 8 p.m. allow-
ing those who work off the farm or
ranch to participate.
As changes to production sys-
tems continue to move forward
across the state, nation and world
the farm business needs to change
as well. Breakeven numbers, devel-
oping budgets and creating bench-
marks to compare the yearly
production and financial perform-
ance so changes and improvements
to the operation can be imple-
mented are the main focuses of Ag
"Ag CEO's is a program geared
toward beginning farmers," said
Adele Harty, SDSU Extension Cow-
Calf Field Specialist. "This group of
producers is being charged with
feeding 9 billion people by the year
2050. With the changes to agricul-
ture during the past 20-40 years,
their skill set needs to change in
order to accomplish that goal and
remain a viable and sustainable op-
To address these changes the
general topics for the sessions in-
clude: farm vision, resource inven-
tory and management (family, land,
crops and livestock), and financial
record creation, budget develop-
ment and analysis and production
topics that are personalized to the
producers in attendance.

Sub-zero temperatures are mak-
ing life difficult for people through-
out the country. Although you may
be concentrated on making sure
your fingers and toes don’t freeze
right now, it is also important to
make sure your plumbing doesn’t
A frozen pipe can lead to a pipe
burst, which can lead to more than
$5,000 in water damage. Despite
the current cold temperatures,
there are still some last-minute ac-
tions you can take to reduce your
risks of costly damage.
First, find out the truth about
frozen pipes below, and then reduce
your risks using frozen pipe re-
sources provided by the Insurance
Institute for Business & Home
Safety (IBHS).
Frozen Pipe Myths
1. Only A Plumber Can Prevent
Frozen Pipes
Not true. There are many things
that you can do yourself to prevent
your pipes from freezing, including
sealing windows and doors, adding
extra insulation, or use heat trace
tape around various piping.
2. Your Risks Go Away When
Temperatures Begin To Warm
Actually, signs of a pipe burst
are often only seen when tempera-
tures begin to warm. When a pipe
freezes the frozen water may act as
a plug, allowing any problems to go
unnoticed. Before checking to see if
you have any issues when temper-
atures increase, shut off the water
supply to reduce your water dam-
age risks.
3. All Frozen Pipes Burst
A pipe can freeze and not burst.
However, a frozen pipe leads to a
pipe burst, which can cause more
than $5,000 in water damage. Pre-
vent a pipe from bursting by not
letting them freeze.
4. A Propane Torch Can Be Used
To Thaw Pipes
Don’t even think about it! You
may think it will thaw the pipes
and prevent significant damage,
but you are only increasing your
risk of fire damage.

For the 73 percent of South
Dakota's cattle producers who
calve in the spring, calving is right
around the corner. Being prepared
is key for a successful and prof-
itable calving season, says Kalyn
Waters, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf
Field Specialist.
"In a year when input costs are
at record highs, saving every calf
possible is at the top of producers'
check list," Waters said.
Cold temperatures and storms
often threaten newborn calves. Ac-
cording to USDA reports, each year
approximately 95,000 calves are
lost annually to cold stress and hy-
Waters says understanding the
risks of hypothermia in newborn
calves and working to identify its
severity quickly allows for proper
treatment and will increase calf
"When calves are 24 hours old or
less and air temperatures drop
below 56.2 degrees, additional en-
ergy is needed to maintain their
body temperature and health," Wa-
ters said.
She adds that several factors im-
pact a newborns calf's ability to
combat hypothermia and cold
stress including; maternal diet
prior to calving, calving difficulty,
hair coat, bedding, colostrum in-
take, speed of detection, wind
speed, and shelter.
Know what the weather holds
Waters says one of the first steps
in planning to prevent cold stress,
is to have a clear understanding of
what weather conditions are. She
encourages producers to frequently
check the Cold Advisory for New-
born Livestock (CANL) forecast
which is available on the Aberdeen
National Weather Service Web site
"The Cold Advisory for Newborn
Livestock (CANL) forecast at the
Aberdeen area's National Weather
Service Web site was created with
input from northern U.S. ranchers
and experts in animal science and
those who study biological re-
sponses to extreme weather condi-
tions," said Edwards, SDSU
Extension Climate Field Specialist.
Edwards explains that the
CANL forecast takes five factors
into account: wind chill, rain or wet
snow, high humidity, combinations
of wind chill and precipitation, and
sunshine vs. cloudy days. As a re-
sult, it is a quick and easy way to
combine several weather factors to-
gether to determine the hazardous
weather risk to your newborn
calves. To learn more about CANL,
visit iGrow.org and read "Cold
Weather Advisories for Newborn
Livestock." To view the National
Weather Services' CANL, visit
recasts.php .
In instances where a calf be-
comes chilled, Waters says produc-
ers need to be ready to warm them
up - whether it's using a warming
box, water baths or another warm-
ing method.
To learn more about this topic,
Waters encourages producers to
visit iGrow.org and read the follow-
ing articles: "Q & A: Lower Critical
Temperatures for Newborn Calves"
and "Cold Stress and Newborn
"Calving can be stressful time
for many cow/calf producers, how-
ever being prepared and learning
more about how to identify and re-
spond to cold stress and hypother-
mia will allow for it to be better
managed, reducing its impact on
the calving season," Waters said.

Rabbits are out in force, says
John Ball, Professor and SDSU Ex-
tension Forestry Specialist.
"You may have noticed the bark
missing from the lower trunks of
young trees. When I walked
through several shelterbelts last
week every tree and shrub was cut
off at about 1-foot as cleanly as if
someone came by with a pair of
hand pruners," Ball said.
Ball reminds that rabbits can
chew bark off of larger trees up to a
height of 18 to 20 inches above the
snow line, any chewing that is done
under the snow line is usually done
by voles or mice.
"The damage is most common to
trees such as crabapples, apples,
honeylocust and maples," he said.
"Shrub damage is usually entire
twigs or stems cut cleanly at a 45-
degree angle. You'll often find small
brown droppings on the snow near
these plants."
To avoid this problem, the best
method is to remove any hiding
cover; brush and woodpiles, which
are perfect habitat for rabbits. He
encourages homeowners to fence off
valuable shrub beds using chicken
wire that is at least 3 feet tall.
"That is 3 feet above the snow
lineand tight with the ground.
However, it is probably a little late
to begin thinking about fencing at
this point," Ball said. "But, it might
not be too late to apply some repel-
lents during some of the warmer
January days."
Ball explains that repellents
work one of two ways, either as
odor, usually mimicking the odor of
a predator (usually their urine), or
taste/irritation, such as capsaicin
(think of hot peppers).
Usually repellents based on odor
are more effective than taste/irrita-
tion but not always, so it never
hurts to experiment a little bit.
Finally, Ball says not to live trap
"No one else wants them either
and most animals that are released
in unfamiliar territory have a very
short life span," Ball said.

The SDGF&P Commission is
proposing two changes to Special
Buck Deer Licenses for 2013.
The proposed changes would
allow resident hunters to hold ei-
ther West River Special Buck or
East River Special Buck tags for
any one year, but not both.
Special Buck License allocations
would also be based on four percent
of the previous year’s allocation of
Resident Deer Licenses that in-
cluded an “any deer” tag for both
East River and West River seasons.
For 2013, that would be a proposed
461 resident and 461 nonresident
West River Special Buck Licenses
and 687 resident East River Spe-
cial Buck Licenses.

companies. In addition, SD taxpay-
ers pay the Wisconsin-based recruit-

is a new employee recruited that

Providing quality schools is often
called the very best tool of economic
development, especially in bringing
growth to our rural communities.
When considering whether to locate
in any town, large or small, one of
the first concerns is the quality of
the local school system. One study
done by the Federal Reserve Bank
in Minneapolis even suggests that
providing quality pre-schools has a
direct correlation to economic
growth in the community.
Education continues to be the
dominant issue of our session. The
number of opt-outs now in effect is
alarming and proves that the state
continues to push the obligation to
fund our public schools to local tax-
payers. This school year 66 of our
151 public schools are currently in
an opt-out with many more districts
likely to try to pass one if the state
continues to underfund schools.
The Governor’s Proposed Budget
for K-12, brought forth by the De-
partment of Education to Joint Ap-
propriations this week, is a request
for a 3.0% increase and would raise
the funding formula from $4,491 to
$4,625 for an increase of $134 per
student. (Inflation was actually
3.2% but the law says 3% or the rate
of inflation, whichever is less). To
put the amount in perspective, the
2008-09 per student allocation was
$4,642 so the FY14 amount is $17
less per student than five years ago!
We can and must do better for our
students! Please continue to share
with me your reflections on educa-
tion cuts and how it has affected
your local school.

Greetings from your District 27
Senator Jim Bradford. We have just
completed a very busy third week of
the session. I’ve served in the SD
Legislature for a total of 12 years
(eight years in the House and I was
recently was re-elected to my third
term in the Senate). I’m doing my
best to cover those issues which I
believe will be of interest to our vot-
ers in Bennett, Haakon, Jackson,
Pennington and Shannon counties.
I serve on both the Senate Health
and Judiciary Committees but I also
pay close attention to what happens
on other committees including
today when I visited Senate Agricul-
In the Senate Agriculture Com-
mittee, Senate Bill 21 was up for a
vote. It would eliminate the owner-
ship inspection for horses and mules
and it passed unanimously. The
current law requires such an inspec-
tion because the word “livestock” is
in the law. If this law was consis-
tently enforced as it is written, you
would be required to show proof of
ownership each and every time you
entered or left an area where live-
stock could be inspected. By chang-
ing the word “livestock” to the word
“cattle” the brand inspection will
now work as intended. The purpose
of the law was to guarantee owner-
ship of the cattle before they were
transported or sold.
Two other issues of importance to
our District and throughout the
state are economic development and
education funding.
We all believe in economic devel-
opment, but it must be a wise use of
taxpayer’s dollars and lead to true
economic growth. Taxpayers de-
serve as much “bang for their buck”
as possible when it comes to eco-
nomic development. One program
that has me concerned is SD Wins.
The SD Wins program was ad-
vanced last year through the Gover-
nor’s Office of Economic
Development and was established
with a $5 million appropriation
from the General Fund. The goal
was to recruit 1,000 new workers
from outside of SD for hard-to-fill
jobs. The cost of the recruitment of
each employee is split 50/50 be-
tween state government and the
company making the hire.
In the first year of the three-year
program, SD Wins has spent

In the wake of the tragedy in
Newtown and the call for gun con-
trol at the federal level, several
bills are being written to improve
safety for schools, protect Second
Amendment rights and other gun
legislation. Rep. Betty Olson, Rep.
Scott Craig and Sen. Craig Tieszen
are introducing a bill that will
allow school boards to authorize
certain individuals the right to
carry inside a school. The proposed
language is permissive, giving
school boards the option to approve
exceptions to gun-free zones based
on certain conditions, if adopted at
the local level. I’ve heard reports of
other gun bills in the works, but
haven’t seen any of them yet. The
focus on keeping our children safe
and protecting our Second Amend-
ment rights brought to mind this
quote by Edmund Burke: “The only
thing necessary for evil to triumph
is for good men to do nothing.”
Hopefully legislators in Pierre can
uphold the Constitution, as we are
sworn to do, and get something
done to protect our citizens.
The Oil and Gas Development
Committee voted to introduce eight
bills to address the issues that
arose at our hearings. HB 1001

opers to give notice to surface own-

The Ag and Natural Resource
Committee met on Wed. HB 1007
was introduced by Senator Larry
Rhoden, District 29. This bill was
an act to restrict the term of con-
servation easements. This would
end perpetual easements and
change it to thirty years. Several
land owners that have perpetual
easements on their land testified
against this bill. As much as I
agreed with parts of the bill it was
about property owners rights in the
end. I voted against this bill and it
failed to make it out of committee.

This event is designed to provide
tribal and state leaders with an op-

In my column last week I re-
ported that there would be a bill
coming to allow school boards to
authorize sentinel programs. This
bill in no way was encouraging
school boards to arm teachers with
guns, but to allow school baords the
opportunity to work with local law
enforcement to train qualified indi-
viduals to protect our schools. The
prime sponsor of the bill, Rep. Scott
Craig, District 30 introduced HB
1087 to the Education Committee.
It was standing room only while
the committee listened to presenta-
tions from proponents and oppo-
nents. The committee had to defer
HB 1087 until Thursday because of
time restraint. On Thursday an
amendment was introduced to HB
1087 that addressed concerns of op-
ponents to the bill. Opponents reit-
erated their concerns of local school
boards having complete control
over the sentinel program. This
amendment was brought in good
faith with language that all school
boards would obtain the approval
of the county sheriff who has juris-
diction over the school premises. It
also added language that would re-
quire complete sentinel training
course. The vote on the amendment
passed by one vote. We then were
allowed to move on HB 1087 which
passed with a 8-7 vote. It now will
come to the house floor for debate.
The concern comes from the recent
events at Sandy Hook Elementary
School in New Town, Conn. I sup-
port the bill because of our neigh-
bors to the north that are seeing
influx of oil drilling activity. Across
the boarder in Montana last year
two men that came from the oil
fields raped and murdered a
teacher on her way to school. Hard-
ing County is the largest county in
the state with vast land and very
few residents. My concern is the
school sets right on HWY 85 which
is the main through-way for the oil
boom. Harding County itself takes

After almost four and a half
years of applications, environmen-
tal studies and hearings, the pro-
posed Keystone XL pipeline is still
in limbo and waiting for approval.
In the face of rising energy costs
and continued reliance on foreign
oil supplies, it is time for President
Obama to finally approve this proj-
The American people deserve a
reliable energy supply that comes
from American sources. That
means more than just oil, it also
means renewable sources such as
hydropower and wind. I have and
will continue to support an all-of-
the-above American energy policy.
In South Dakota, we continue to
lead by example by taking advan-
tage of our vast wind energy re-
sources and by developing new
ethanol technologies.
The Keystone XL pipeline will
ultimately decrease our depend-
ence on unstable sources of energy
from the Middle East and could
create up to 20,000 new American
jobs. This project continues to re-
ceive strong bipartisan support.
There’s little, if anything, that
should be holding the President
back from authorizing the start of
construction. Environmental ana-
lysts have concluded that there are
few risks to adding the 1,700 mile
pipeline. Even the nation’s biggest
labor organization stated that the
Keystone XL pipeline would allow
workers from all over the United
States to benefit from the project.
It’s time for the President and
his administration to get serious
about our nation’s energy security.
This pipeline, once completed, will
carry up to 800,000 barrels of oil a
day from western Canada to re-
fineries in Texas. The pipeline is
shovel ready: easements have been
acquired from over 97 percent of
landowners in South Dakota and
all seven pump station sites have
been purchased. But further prepa-
ration cannot proceed without ap-
proval from the President.
It’s in our nation’s best interest
to get this pipeline up and running
as soon as possible. Waiting over
four years for approval is just too
long. I will continue to work to en-
sure that South Dakotans are
heard loud and clear in Washing-
It’s Time to Approve the
Keystone XL Pipeline
By Rep. Kristi Noem
Pending before President
Obama is a true economic stimulus
plan. Unlike the $833 billion stim-
ulus bill that was loaded with pet
projects and wasteful government
spending, this stimulus plan is pri-
vately funded and would not waste
taxpayer dollars on yet another du-
plicative government program. In-
stead, this plan would bolster
private sector job creation, would
help secure America’s energy fu-
ture, and would generate tax rev-
enue and stimulate growth in
South Dakota and throughout the
country. This pending plan is the
approval of the Keystone XL
While the benefits of the Key-
stone XL pipeline are clear, what
remains unclear is why President
Obama continues to delay this job-
creating, domestic energy-produc-
ing project. The pipeline, which
would run through South Dakota,
is expected to create an estimated
20,000 jobs, and transport up to an
additional 830,000 barrels of oil per
day to U.S. refineries. This $7 bil-
lion project would not only stimu-
late the American economy, it
would create hundreds of construc-
tion jobs and generate new tax rev-
enue in South Dakota.
Unfortunately, in January of
2012, the president decided to play
politics with this important eco-
nomic project. Instead of determin-
ing whether to move forward with
the pipeline, the president opted to
punt the decision until after the
2012 presidential election, further
delaying job creation and energy
On January 22, 2013, Nebraska
Governor Dave Heineman ap-
proved a new route through Ne-
braska for the Keystone XL
pipeline that avoids the environ-
mentally sensitive Sandhills re-
gion. The new route was approved
after the Nebraska Department of
Environmental Quality determined
the pipeline would have minimal
environmental impact on the area.
Following the news of Governor
Heineman’s approval, I joined a bi-
partisan group of 53 U.S. Senators
on January 23, 2013, in sending
another letter to President Obama
urging him to approve the Key-
stone XL pipeline without delay.
The letter encouraged the presi-
dent to choose economic develop-
ment and American energy
security, and to cease all further de-
lays on the pipeline. After several
political delays and four and a half
years of environmental reviews, it
is time for the president to stick to
the deadline. Unfortunately, it does
not appear that the Obama Admin-
istration’s State Department plans
to make a determination regarding
the environmental documents for
this pipeline until this spring or

protect my students or myself” in
an emergency.
Opposing testimony was offered
by Orson Ward, Lead, who cited his
vast military training in firearms
and his current position on the
Lead School Board, said “school is
an unforgiving environment” for
guns. He noted the “inevitable ac-
cidental discharge” of a gun as his
opposition to the bill.
Rob Monson, Superintendents
Association of South Dakota, said
even with the amendment to pro-
vide more training for the school
sentinels, the bill still was not ac-
ceptable to schools. Schools have
plans in place for tornadoes, fires,
and other situations.
“We plan, prepare and practice,”
aid Monson, noting that for this
question, “well over 95 percent of
schools have a plan in place and
practice it at least once a year.”
The dialogue on this situation,
he said, should include the mental
health issue, noting there should
be one school counselor for every
200 students and “we are nowhere
near that.”
The bill, which passed out of
committee with a close 8-7 vote,
now heads to the House floor, per-
haps on Tuesday.
By Elizabeth “Sam” Grosz
Community News Service
An emotionally charged meas-
ure that could put armed and
trained guards in schools passed
out of committee by one vote last
week at the S.D. Legislature.
The result of two hearings—over
three hours of discussion--by the
House Education Committee,
HB1087 allows local school boards
the option of hiring a so-called
“school sentinel.” As the bill was
amended before passage Jan. 25,
the local county sheriff then must
agree to the board’s plan before the
sentinel program moves forward in
the district.
Freshman Representative Scott
Craig, R-Rapid City, said the bill
may appear unnecessary to large
schools, those that currently can af-
ford liaison officers, but this bill al-
lows local school boards to make
their own determination of need.
The current “gun-free zone,”
Craig said of schools, “indicates a
‘soft target’” for those who intend to
harm people.
Rep. Betty Olson, R-Prairie City,
spoke to the vast area of Butte,
Harding and Perkins Counties in
her district, noting it can be “a long
way to law enforcement.” Even
though she as a substitute teacher
has a handgun, she said, she is “not

As preparations continue for the
Jan. 30 opening of the 2013 filing
season for most taxpayers, the In-
ternal Revenue Service announced
that processing of tax returns
claiming education credits will
begin by the middle of February.
Taxpayers using Form 8863, Ed-
ucation Credits, can begin filing
their tax returns after the IRS up-
dates its processing systems. Form
8863 is used to claim two higher
education credits -- the American
Opportunity Tax Credit and the
Lifetime Learning Credit.
The IRS emphasized that the
delayed start will have no impact
on taxpayers claiming other educa-
tion-related tax benefits, such as
the tuition and fees deduction and
the student loan interest deduc-
tion. People otherwise able to file
and claiming these benefits can
start filing Jan. 30.
As it does every year, the IRS re-
views and tests its systems in ad-
vance of the opening of the tax
season to protect taxpayers from
processing errors and refund de-
lays. The IRS discovered during
testing that programming modifi-
cations are needed to accurately
process Forms 8863. Filers who are
otherwise able to file but use the
Form 8863 will be able to file by
mid-February. No action needs to
be taken by the taxpayer or their
tax professional. Typically through
the mid-February period, about 3
million tax returns include Form
8863, less than a quarter of those
filed during the year.
The IRS remains on track to
open the tax season on Jan. 30 for
most taxpayers. The Jan. 30 open-
ing includes people claiming the
student loan interest deduction on
the Form 1040 series or the higher
education tuition or fees on Form
8917, Tuition and Fees Deduction.
Forms that will be able to be filed
later are listed on IRS.gov.
Updated information will be
posted on IRS.gov.

Creative Ways to Eat More
Fruits & Veggies
Whether your doctor has encour-
aged you to increase your fruit and
vegetable intake or you have re-
cently resolved to eat more fruit
and veggies in 2013 -- it’s worth
the effort to do so. Eating a variety
of fruits and vegetables every day
is healthy for you.
Individuals’ who eat more gener-
ous amounts of vegetables and
fruits, as part of a healthy diet, are
more likely to have reduced risk of
chronic diseases, including certain
cancers, cardiovascular diseases
and stroke. Fruits and vegetables
are nutrient dense foods that are
low in calories and fat.
Eating vegetables and fruits of
different colors provides a wide
range of valuable nutrients like
fiber, folate, potassium, and vita-
mins A and C. Examples include
orange sweet potatoes, green
spinach, black beans, yellow corn,
purple plums, red strawberries or
white onions. Try new fruits and
vegetables frequently for more va-
Easy ways to eat more fruits
and vegetables as part of a healthy
diet include: making half your
plate fruits and vegetables, adding
your favorite beans and peas to
salads and low-fat dips, or add
fruit to your morning yogurt, ce-
real or oatmeal. Instead of having
a tuna salad sandwich, try a scoop
of tuna salad on top of a few
tomato slices. Mix vegetables into
your pasta. When making canned
soup, add extra frozen veggies.
Add cucumbers, peppers, lettuce,
tomatoes and/or onion to a cheese
or meat sandwich. Make your own
healthy popsicles by freezing 100%
fruit juice in popsicle molds.

Why Not to Apply
Fungicides to Wheat
Over the past several years, fo-
liar fungicide application on dry
land wheat has gone from a rela-
tively rare practice to one that
many producers consider auto-
There have been positive yield
responses from many of these ap-
plications, and with wheat com-
manding competitive market
prices, often positive economic re-
turns. The fear of missing out on
these potential yield responses and
economic returns has undoubtedly
fueled much of the increase in fun-
gicide use. The question is, do fo-
liar fungicide applications on dry
land wheat always pay, and do
routine fungicide applications
cause any harm?
The answer to the first question
is relatively obvious, no; foliar fun-
gicide applications do not always
produce sufficient yield increases
to pay for the application. In fact
they can produce yield decreases.
There are three wheat growth
stages where foliar fungicides are
applied, tiller (typically with a
post-emerge herbicide applica-
tion), flag leaf emergence, and
Applications at the tillering
stage are only recommended if
wheat is planted into wheat
residue, and only if a post-emerge
herbicide application is planned. If
the crop is not planted into wheat
residue, the main pathogens of
concern, septoria leaf blotch and
tanspot, are not present in the
field at a level to likely pose a
major threat. Adding the fungicide
to the tank when making an herbi-
cide application makes the cost
minimal, increasing the likelihood
of an economic return. Research
trials have produced no yield re-
sponse or negative yield responses
as well as positive yield responses.
Yield response is highly dependent
on weather conditions following
the application, and typically
amounts to only a few Bu/A when
they occur.
Factors favoring a flag leaf ap-
plication are: disease is appearing
on flag-1 and/or flag-2, the variety
is susceptible to fungal diseases,
the crop has good yield potential,
wet weather is forecast, the mar-
ket price of wheat is high, and the
cost of the fungicide application is
low. Flowering time applications
are mainly justified if scab risk is
high, and do offer protection from
late-season rusts if they move up
from the south. Flag leaf and flow-
ering time fungicide applications
either involve aerial application, or
damaging a small percentage of
the crop if application is made by
ground equipment, both of which
amount to considerably more input
cost than a tillering application.
To be effective, tillering, flag
leaf and flowering time fungicide
applications all need to be made
before the infestation of disease
becomes severe. In order to make
good decisions, fields must be
scouted and the factors favoring a
yield response considered. If yield
potential is limited due to hail,
winterkill, bacterial or viral dis-
ease, drought or other reasons, the
potential return to a fungicide ap-
plication is reduced.
The question, can routine fungi-
cide applications cause harm is not
as obvious. There are beneficial
fungi present in any crop field as
well as harmful species. These
fungi can be helpful in feeding on
bacteria, aphids, and possibly
other harmful pests, and fungi-
cides will control them as well as
the harmful fungi. Each chemical
application that is made to a crop
weakens the protective layer of the
leaves, making the plant more sus-
ceptible to moisture stress and to
bacterial disease. Microbial activ-
ity in the soil is desirable, and
fungicides are known to reduce it.
Fungicide application decisions
should not be taken lightly.
