Kadoka Nursing Home Resident of the Month
Dwight Louder was born in Pierre, SD, on May 13, 1930 to Anna and Harold Louder. He was raised with two brothers and three one being sisters, Deanna Byrd of Kadoka. Dwight attended a country school through the 8th grade and graduated from high school in Draper. He started college in Brookings, but came home to farm and ranch on the old homestead at Draper. It was said that he took flying lessons, took a solo flight, and his Dad sold the airplane, putting an end to that hobby. On June 15, 1950 he was united in marriage to Dorothy Volmer. They had six children; two girls and four boys. These siblings are scattered from Texas to Montana, with three of the boys remaining on the farm. Dwight and Dorothy have 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. In what little spare time he had away from his farming and ranching, Dwight enjoyed reading. Anything that kept him up on the latest news, he read. He especially enjoyed the Mitchell newspaper and FOX news. He simply didn’t have time for other hobbies. “I was good at giving orders,” he said with his devilish smile, “but nobody listened.” In some of their travels, the couple have gone to Hawaii, Montana, Kentucky, Florida, Indiana and a few trips to Las Vegas. Oyster stew and ham sandwiches have been his favorite Christmastime food. The card game 500 was his favorite game, when he took the time to play. “Dwight was a man of all business,” his wife said while visiting her husband recently. “He worked from daylight to dark. It was always work, work, work.” She said after he suffered a stroke he came to the Kadoka Nursing Home on November 11, 2010. “Dwight is a very outspoken person and he can strike up a conversation with anyone,” Heidi Coller commented.
City to hear public input regarding comprehensive plan
Let your voice be heard! If you have an opinion, either for or against, the time is nearing for the City of Kadoka to hold a public hearing to receive comments regarding the proposed comprehensive plan. At the council’s regular meeting at 7:00 p.m. on Monday, July 9, an agenda item includes the public hearing. The meeting will be held in the city auditorium annex. At an earlier meeting on May 30, the Planning and Zoning Commission heard comments from the public. At the end of that meeting a motion carried to send the plan on to the Kadoka City Council.

County discusses new library, will continue to offer driver license exams services
~ by Ronda Dennis ~ Jackson County held back-toback public hearings Friday night to discuss options for a new county library and the fate of continuing to offer driver license exams. With approximately 25 people in attendance Jim Stilwell said there’s a couple of options: build a new structure at the existing location or purchase the FSA building. In addition to the fact the county would like to keep the library on Main Street, several of the pros and cons were also discussed. The commissioners said there could be an option to purchase land from Joe Handrahan (who did not attend the meeting) directly north of the library, demolish the current library building and build a new library. However, that would take time and there would be no property to house the library during the construction phase. They also noted that the FSA building is for sale and it already has existing offices: NRCS, JC Soil Conservation and Youth and Family Services. Employees from these offices attended the meeting, however, they could not say if they would continue to rent from the county; it was not their call. If the county purchases the FSA building and the three lots south of the building there would not be room for the CAP office. Neither of the FSA office owners, Rich Hildebrand or Jim Kujawa, were at the meeting to answer questions. The FSA owners had sounded interested in some type of land trading. Eileen Stolley gave her personal support for utilizing the FSA office and cleaning up the other lots and using the old library location for a new business. Delores Bonenberger said if the library stays on Main Street, people have offered to help with donations and fundraisers. Marlene Knutson of Central South Dakota Enhancement District said there will need to be an assessment plan to go forward with grant funding. However, the deadline is July 13 and the next deadline would not be until October 15. Funding a new library could be done through CDBG or an opt out. Commissioner Glen Bennett said, “We need to know tonight if you (the people) want us to a apply for a grant or opt out.” With a show of hands, everyone was supportive of applying for a grant and purchasing the FSA office. Letters of support, according to Knutson, will help with the grant application. They may be sent to the Jackson County Auditor at PO Box 280, Kadoka, SD 57543 by July 9. There were 37 people attending the public hearing for the driver’s license exam issue. Mitzi Mitchell said in 2009 she issued 391 licenses and through the month of May the count is already at 305. They are offered Monday - Friday from 8:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. The people asked that the county cross train other office people in the court house and keep the service open. The commissioners said they had never replaced anyone in the director of equalization office after Mitchell took over as register of deeds. “It would be foolish to get rid of a service that brings people to town,” one noted. People said, keep the service. A brief discussion was held on whether or not to have the court house offices open or closed during the lunch hour. It was decided to keep the offices closed.

Members of the Martin Modern Woodmen of America chapter and the Kadoka Area High School National Honor Society helped raise money for Joyce Richardson by having a bake sale auction. The event, held on May 15, 2012, raised $4,639.50. This includes $1,000.00 matched by Modern Woodmen’s home office through the organization’s Matching Fund program. The money will be used for medical expenses. The Matching Fund program offers Modern Woodmen members nationwide the chance to show their support for a community cause, organizations or individuals in need by holding fundraisers. Modern Woodmen matches money raised up to $2,500. These fundraising project contribute more than $6.5 million to community needs nationwide each year. Coordinated by local Modern Woodmen members, chapters provide opportunities to connect through social activities and volunteer projects. For more information about the local chapter and how you can get involved, contact Don Haynes at 605-859-2278. Most Americans may not realize it, but the Fourth of July is one of the deadliest holidays of the year due to alcohol-impaired driving crashes. That’s why this Fourth of July the Jackson County Sheriffs Office is stepping up enforcement efforts as part of the ongoing “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over” enforcement crackdown to catch and arrest impaired drivers who put themselves and others at risk. The Fourth of July is one of the deadliest holidays due to an increase in impaired-driving fatalities. Too many people die behind the wheel each year due to those who choose to drive after drinking, so our officers will be out in full force this Fourth of July showing zero tolerance for impaired drivers. Impaired-driving crashes killed more than 10,000 people in 2010, accounting for 31 percent of all traffic-related fatalities in the United States. That’s an average of one alcohol-impaired-driving fatality every 51 minutes. But the percentage of fatalities from impaired driving spike around the Fourth of July. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, 392 people were killed in motor vehicle traffic crashes during the Fourth of July holiday in 2010 (6:00 p.m. July 25:59 a.m. July 6.)  Of those fatalities, 39 percent were in crashes that involved at least one driver or motorcycle operator with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher. To save lives on our roadways this Fourth of July, local law enforcement will be cracking down on impaired driving through increased sobriety checkpoints, roving and saturation patrols, and other enforcement methods. Often Fourth of July celebrations start during the day, but last well into the night – making the dangers from impaired drivers even higher at night. The amount of alcohol that one can consume during a day-long party or celebration can drastically impair the motor skills needed to drive safely. Add the fact that many others may be out driving impaired, and that visual skills also decrease at night, and you have a recipe for disaster.” Continued on page 2

Correction from Last Weeks’ Column As anyone who has followed the SDSU Extension Re-organization knows, the plan for the new SDSU Extension system was unveiled in April, 2011, not 2012 as stated in last weeks’ column. Sorry for the error. 2012 Pesticide Container Recycle Collections Pesticide container recycling collections across South Dakota will begin in the middle of July. Dates, times and locations of the collection sites can be found on the SD Dept of Ag, “Agricultural Services” website: http://sdda.sd.gov/Ag_Services/. Under “Agronomy Services Programs”, click “Container Recycling & Waste Pesticide Collection Program”, and scroll down to “2012 Pesticide Container Recycling Collection Schedule”. Immediately below that is a link to a version of the schedule containing links to a map of each collection site. The website contains good information on pesticide container disposal and recycling, as well as information on the waste (unusable) pesticide collection program. Oil Spills and Farms: Protecting Your Business Farms now have less than one year to prepare or amend and implement their Spill Prevention, Control, and Countermeasure (SPCC) Plans. The compliance date for farms is May 10, 2013. You need an SPCC plan if: an oil spill from your farm could reach water and you store oil (diesel, gasoline, hydraulic oil, lube oil,
crop oil or vegetable oil, etc. in aboveground quantities of more than 1,320 gallons, or completely buried tanks of more than 42,000 gallons. For more information or to download an SPCC plan template, visit: http://www.epa.gov/oem/content/spcc/spcc_ag.htm. Livestock Water Testing Just to remind producers that all of Regional Extension Centers and many County Extension offices have handheld electrical conductivity meters and welcome samples. These meters provide an instant analysis of total salt content that might cause problems for livestock drinking the water, and at no cost to the producer. Rural water and pipelines have reduced the dependence on water in stock dams for many producers, but if you rely on stock dams, testing the water will help avoid performance and health problems. Elevated salt levels may suggest that producers should submit a sample to a laboratory for a more detailed analysis, which can determine the makeup of the salts, and the sulfate portion of the total salt content, which can cause specific problems such as polio.

Key requirements of abortion risk disclosure legislation in effect
Attorney General Marty Jackley has announced that a federal District Court has issued an Order which will allow key requirements of the South Dakota Legislature’s recent abortion legislation to go into effect. The legislation expands the requirement that risks of abortion be disclosed. Pursuant to the 2011 and 2012 legislation and the Order, beginning July 1, 2012, doctors who perform abortions must assess each woman for preexisting risk factors such as coercion and must advise the woman about the risk of adverse psychological outcomes. The Order lifts an injunction issued last year against provisions of the 2011 abortion statutes. The 2011 statutes were designed to ensure that a woman’s consent to have an abortion is voluntary, uncoerced and informed. Among other things, the 2011 law requires doctors performing abortions to first meet with the woman and assess whether she has any preexisting risk factors for adverse psychological outcomes from an abortion. The doctor must also assess whether the woman has been coerced to have an abortion. The 2011 law also imposes a three-day waiting period between the time the doctor meets with the woman and the actual procedure, and requires the woman to consult with a pregnancy help center. Planned Parenthood sued the State in federal court over the 2011 legislation, and on June 30, 2011, the court issued a preliminary injunction prohibiting the State from enforcing most of the provisions, pending the outcome of litigation on the merits of the case. During the 2012 session, the Legislature amended several portions of the 2011 abortion legislation. Planned Parenthood then amended its complaint, continuing its challenge against portions of the amended act regarding the pregnancy help centers and the 3-day delay, and dropping its challenge to the amended provisions regarding coercion and risk-factor assessment. As a result, the parties to the litigation stipulated to an Order that the coercion and risk-factor assessment provisions will go into effect on July 1. The remaining challenged provisions—the requirement for involvement of the pregnancy help centers and the 3day delay—will continue to be enjoined pending the outcome of discovery, briefing and argument before the District Court.

Read 1 Corinthians 2:6-16 Spiritual discernment is a supernatural ability, which requires supernatural power. In our human The Power Source for Discernment strength, we can rely only on what we see, hear, feel, and know in order to make decisions and evaluate circumstances and relationships. But when the Holy Spirit comes to live within us, He opens up an entirely new dimension of understanding. He shows us things we could never figure out by ourselves. Although the Bible is the basis for spiritual discernment, without the interpreting power of the Spirit, reading it would be strictly an academic endeavor. But the Spirit takes the words and brings them to life in the hearts of those who have trusted Christ as their Savior. He knows precisely how to apply God's Word to our exact need at just the right moment. Haven't you found this to be true? You've read a passage many times, but just when you need a particular message, that familiar verse jumps off the page right into your heart. That's the work of the Spirit. He is the only one who knows the thoughts of the Father, and His job is to open our minds to understand "the things freely given to us by God" (v. 12). The Lord isn't trying to hide His thoughts from us; rather, He wants us to know how He thinks so that we can proceed wisely. So what should we do if we're struggling to understand Scripture? First of all, the Lord wants us to seek Him and ask for wisdom to comprehend. This requires time and energy invested in Bible study and prayer. Second, the more yielded we are to the Spirit, the more we'll be able to hear His voice.

drivers involved in fatal crashes in 2010 was almost five times higher at night (6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m.) than during the day (6 a.m. to 5:59 p.m.) for the July 4th 2010 holiday period (6:00 p.m. July 2 - 5:59 a.m. July 6.) In fact, more than 80 percent of alcohol-impaired driving fatalities took place at nighttime (6 p.m. to 5:59 a.m.) What is even more tragic about the statistics is we see a high number of fatalities among 18- to 34year-olds. Forty-six percent of alcohol-impaired driving fatalities during the 2010 Fourth of July holiday period were within this age group. These are people who have their whole life ahead of them, but in one instant, one act of irresponsibility, they can lose it all. There is simply too much at stake to ever drive impaired. There are numerous consequences as a result of being caught driving impaired, such as the risk of killing or harming others, jail time, insurance hikes, potential loss of driver’s license, just to name a few. Those who try to drink and drive this Fourth of July should be forewarned. We will be out in force looking for impaired drivers, and we will catch and arrest you. No warnings. No excuses. If you drive impaired, you will be arrested. The Jackson County Sheriffs Office recommends these simple tips for a safe Fourth of July: •Plan a safe way home before the fun begins; •Before drinking, designate a sober driver; •If you’re impaired, use a taxi, call a sober friend or family member, or use public transportation; •If you happen to see a drunk driver on the road, don’t hesitate to call 911 and report it to your local Law Enforcement; •And remember, “Drive Sober or Get Pulled Over.” If you know someone who is about to drive or ride while impaired, take their keys and help them make other arrangements to get to where they are going safely. --Sheriff Raymond Clements, Jr. Jackson County Sheriff

Healthy Cooking Techniques Cooking healthy doesn’t mean that you have to go to culinary school or purchase expensive cookware. Eating healthy is about preparation, seasonings, and choices of foods you eat. Good health depends on good nutrition. Go to http://www.choosemyplate.gov/supertracker-tools/supertracker.html for help with planning, analyzing, and tracking diet and physical activity. In addition, you can often make better choices about what and how much you eat by preparing and cooking food yourself. The food preparation methods you choose for cooking foods can have a big effect on their nutrient content. Cooking methods that minimize the amount of water, time and temperature needed, will help to preserve nutrients. Use any leftover cooking water for making sauces or soups. Reduce cooking time by covering your pot to hold in steam and heat. Steaming is a good example of a cooking method that cooks vegetables quickly and retains nutrients. Steamed vegetables will retain more flavors and won’t need any salt. To lower sodium intake, avoid using prepackaged seasoning mixes. Instead add fresh or dried
herbs such as thyme and rosemary for pungent flavor or dry mustard for a zesty flavor. At the last moment before serving, try sprinkling citrus juice as a flavor enhancer on fruits or vinegar on vegetables. In a wok, quickly cook small pieces of vegetables, poultry or seafood in vegetable stock or a small amount of oil to stir fry foods. Soy sauce and Teriyaki seasonings should be avoided because of their high sodium content. Baking and roasting are two healthy ways you can prepare meats and fish. When roasting, use a rack in the pan so the food doesn’t sit in its own fat drippings. Use fat-free liquids like lemon juice or tomato juice to baste. Bake poultry, lean meat or fish in a covered dish with a little extra liquid. Grilling is another way to cook your favorite lean meats or vegetables in a healthy way. Place the food on a grill rack over an open flame. Use a long-handled grill basket for grilling smaller items. Healthy decisions start at home. Make better food choices by planning ahead. By getting children involved in meal planning and healthy cooking it will be easier to make healthy changes.

4th since that is a busy day for law enforcement. He had earlier in the week off, however, so Kenny and Roxie were planning to go up on Sunday and stay through the 4th. Bunny Green was visited last weekend by Jerry Konechne of Kimball who was in town for the school reunion. He and Bunny’s son, Gary, were always good friends. During the week, Wally Wells brought Bunny’s mail several times. One day, Delores Bonenberger and her sister, Gladys Hix, stopped in to visit for a couple of hours. Delores and Gladys were cousins of Virgil Green. Bunny said her granddaughter, Ruth Ann, had recently moved from a trailer park in Ft. Pierre that had a lot of trouble with flooding from nearby hills and, last year, the river. Ruth Ann and family have moved to higher ground which Bunny said is quite a relief. Howie Ireland enjoyed the school reunion in Belvidere last weekend. His whole class of three members attended to celebrate their 50th anniversary of graduation. Cathy Ireland, however, was not a Belvidere graduate. She graduated from Hot Springs. Cathy said her garden is doing okay if she can keep the grasshoppers in check. In the front of the house, the rhubarb has been eaten down to just the stalks. Rhubarb leaves are supposed to be poisonous, but grasshoppers seem to thrive on them. As of June 30th, Jo Rodgers is officially the postmaster at Murdo. She previously was the postmaster at Midland. This week, though, she worked at Presho and Wall more than at Murdo. The Murdo Post Office will entail considerably more responsibility than Midland did but probably won’t pay a lot more. Jo likes the work at Murdo. Son Jory continues to play baseball this summer. He has been so busy with that and other things that he has not had much time to spend at the ranch with his grandma, Carolyn Manke, lately. Delores Bonenberger and her sister, Gladys Hix, of Colorado, have kept busy as they usually do when Gladys comes to visit. They naturally took in the school reunion at Belvidere last weekend. Saturday evening, they had supper at Ruby and Lenny Sanftner’s in Kadoka. They also traveled to Rapid City and Hot Springs. On Sunday, they were in Wall for a family reunion of the Hix family. The daughter of the late Bud Hix was there from Chamberlain as was a grandchild from New Underwood. Gladys will be returning home this coming week. Delores will take her back with the help of her granddaughter, Alisha, and Alisha’s daughter, Joslin, of Mitchell. Alisha works for social services and the placing of foster children.

Saturday, Ken Koistenen of Pierre came and fixed Maxine Allard’s storm door and put a hand railing on her front porch. It was a very kind deed for a very kind lady. Boyd and Pat Porch came down from Kadoka on Sunday evening with supper for the crowd at the Harry and Jeanne Merchen home. Guests at the Merchen’s included: Darrel and Lynnette Batie of Rapid City, Dan and Gigi Batie and
Third Time’s a Charm
The third time’s a charm, or at least that was the case with my new arch supports. I needed them since, in the house, I like to slop around in moccasins which have no support of anything whatsoever, and I was experiencing heel pain on my right foot. Anyway, after bringing the supports home from the store, I slipped them into my moccasins with the pretty side up to give them a try. They weren’t very comfortable, but I persevered and wore them most of one night while I was up with son Chance. Later about dawn and before discarding the plastic bubble the things came in, I read the directions. In tiny print it mentioned that the supports should be inserted with the maker’s-logo side down. That wasn’t the way I had them. I flipped them over and found they were better that way for sure. When wife Corinne woke up a bit later, I confessed to my mistake and took the supports out of my moccasins to show her. Then I noticed that, on the bottoms, they were marked “left” and “right.” Good grief! I didn’t have them that way. As I result, I switched them once again and found them to be considerably more comfortable. Since then and over the last week, my heel pain has gradually decreased which is a good thing. As you can see, like many men, I often don’t bother to read the instructions unless all else fails. Also like many men, I don’t immediately rush to visit the doctor except when there is no alternative. Sure, my heel has been hurting somewhat since mid-May when I was on my feet a lot getting ready for our branding. I was just in hopes it would get better on its own which it didn’t appear to be in a hurry to do. Meanwhile, I cast around for possible causes. I’ve heard of bone spurs but didn’t know much about them. Gout bothers some people, but that didn’t seem to fit either. Other people have trouble with their Achilles tendon which is by the heel, but the misery seemed lower in the foot than that. In pondering all these things, I even considered fatal incurable diseases which I didn’t really think were very likely, but, if one of those was at fault, there wasn’t much to be done about it anyway and I didn’t want to know about it. Oddly enough, the heel pain was the absolute worst on first getting up from sleep. It really hurt on those first few steps whereas most things improve with rest. Corinne saw me limping about one day after waking and asked what was going on. I told her the details which sent her to the computer looking for information. Before long, she came across something called “plantar fasciitis” which pretty much fit the symptoms as far as location and especially about being the worst on first getting up. It is an inflammation of a thick band of tissue, called the plantar fascia, that runs across the bottom of the foot and connects your heel bone to your toes. It is one of the most common causes of heel pain according to the Mayo Clinic. It is most seen in runners which I am not, but also afflicts those who wear shoes without adequate support which I am. High arches don’t help either, and I inherited that condition from my mother although mine aren’t quite as high as hers. Recommended treatments include arch supports, staying off your feet more than usual, applying ice packs occasionally, and doing some stretching exercises. In casually mentioning my heel problem to our doctor one day when consulting him about son Chance, he told me what exercises to do and that the medicine Aleve would help if needed. I haven’t taken any medicines, but I have been doing the stretching stuff. Improvement has been noted. I’m a fan of arch supports and foot-stretching techniques. Dr. K also said that, if the simple things don’t work, I should come back to him and he’d give me a shot of steroids in the foot. He said the shots were fairly painful, but they helped quite a bit. Guess who won’t be going back to the doctor for a shot in the heel unless it turns out to be completely necessary. As a result of all this, I have, of course, decided to read all instructions to begin with and also to consult my doctor on a regular basis. Yeah, right. You’ve got to be kidding. Not going to happen. Next you’ll be wanting me to stop and ask for directions when I’m trying to get somewhere.
grandsons, Ryan and Dylon ,of Coalstrip, MT, Tim and Tammy Merchen and Ty of Kadoka and Harry’s brother’s, Mark and Widd Merchen. Dan and Gigi came down to help with the harvest. Wheat harvest is in full swing at their house. Jeanne is enjoying Gigi’s help in the kitchen, too. Jeanne is recovering nicely from her recent surgery. We are glad to have them home again. Kalla Sybesma of Platte was a weekend guests of Andee Beckwith at the James Letelliers. The gals spent some of the time at the Bauman cabin. Susan Taft and Morgan enjoyed the movie in Philip on Sunday. Sunday evening guests at the James Letelliers were: the Jason Burma family, Paul and LuAnne Beckwith and family of Pierre and Judy Weiss Manna from the Ukraine. Judy is a good friend of LuAnne’s and she had not been back to Norris, since they left for the Ukraine 12 years ago. Later that evening, Tim and Tammy Merchen and Ty delivered an airconditioner to the Letelliers so we are thoroughly enjoying cooler temperatures inside at least. I was in Kadoka earlier in the week and must have looked melted down because Tammy quickly offered an air conditioner. Boy, is it a life saver. Saturday evening, Sharon Ring, Edna Kary and Rebekkah, Susan and Morgan Taft, June Ring and the twins, and Pastor Denke all enjoyed the fireworks display at the Bruce Ring home. Sunday morning after church June Ring, accompanied by Kenda Huber, took June’s grandson, Michael, to the airport in Rapid City. Michael boarded the plane for Dallas/Ft. Worth to keep his doctor appointment. Michael broke his arm quite severely earlier in the summer. Remember to stop by at the Norris Township Hall on Sunday afternoon and wish Congratulations to Robert and Sharon Ring on their golden anniversary. They are a very special couple in our community and after all they have spent all their married lives here and hope they spend many more. Have a fun and safe fourth of July!
State Fair Beef Cook-Off, entries due Wed., Aug. 1
South Dakota is known for its good cooks and great beef—and the 2012 South Dakota State Fair Beef Cook-Off is the opportunity to put a spotlight on the state’s accomplished home cooks and great-tasting, nutritious beef in a friendly, fun annual event. “If you’re one of our state’s good amateur cooks armed with a great beef recipe, it’s time to enter the State Fair Beef Cook-Off,” says Karla Pazour, chair of the event. “We’d love anyone who enjoys cooking to participate,” says Pazour. “The State Fair is a true South Dakota affair with competition in everything from horticulture to livestock breeds.” The Beef CookOff is one more friendly competition featuring grills, skillets and beef. Entries and recipes are due August 1, 2012 for the State Fair Beef Cook-Off to be held Saturday, September 1 at the South Dakota State Fair in Huron. The contest is open to non-professional South Dakota residents in either the youth division (10-18 years) or adult division (19 and older). Beef recipes submitted must feature a main meal entrée appropriate for entertaining or special occasion meals. Judging is based on taste, appearance, originality, nutrition and ease of preparation. The winner of the youth division will receive a $250 cash prize, while the adult division winner will take home $500 in cash. Thanks to the Beef Check-off dollar, there will be $1,500 in cash prizes awarded. Pazour says, “Many people have fond memories of their favorite meals on vacation or at trend-setting restaurants.” This year's cooking theme “DESTINATION: DINNER” challenges the cook to replicate recipes that are representative of specific locations—think Bourbon Street Steak, Lone Star Salad, Beef Burgundy, KoreanStyle Ribs, explains Pazour. Beef's versatility makes it a natural for various ethnic creations. She says, “Sometimes you can escape from life's ordinary by simply creating an extraordinary beef meal!” Individuals selected to compete will actually prepare their beef entrée in a public area during the Beef Cook-Off, allowing participants to interact with state fair attendees. Judges are kept in a secluded location and recipes are judged completely on the finished product, not on cooking procedures. Hosted by the South Dakota CattleWomen and funded by the SD Beef Industry Council through the Beef Check-off, the State Fair Beef Cook-Off is an excellent way, says Pazour, to educate consumers on the 29 lean cuts of beef along with beef ’s versatility, ease of preparation and excellent taste. For more information and to print an entry form for the State Fair Beef Cook-Off, go to www.sdbeef.org or www.sdstatefair.com. Entry forms and recipes must be submitted by August 1 on the www.sdbeef.org website or to Karla Pazour, SD Beef Cook-Off, 25725 350th Ave., Pukwana, SD 57370. Finalists will be selected and notified by August 17. Any additional questions about the contest can be directed to Pazour at (605) 894-4490.

Nicci DeVries spent part of Sunday helping to set up a fireworks booth at Kadoka. It is a fundraiser of sorts for the AAU wrestling club, and is located across the street from Discount Fuel in a trailer by what used to be the Sidekicks Restaurant and Texaco station. It was rather a warm day for such activities, but the job got done. The Lions Club used to sell fireworks in town, but they have retired from that activity so the wrestling club took it up. The DeVries boys were left at home to mow the yard and such, and Mark DeVries was reclaiming his tractor which had broken down and was being repaired. The tractor is needed for haying this coming week. After the 4th, the DeVries family hopes to attend a family reunion at Ft. Robinson in Nebraska. This is a Rickenbach reunion, which is Velma DeVries’ family, and often attracts close to a hundred people. Nicci was hoping for cool weather since there is no air conditioning at Ft. Robinson although there is a swimming pool. Jim and Tim DeVries left Wednesday for their home in Kansas but are expected back later in the summer. Larry, Jo, and Jenny Johnston attended a Svenson family reunion in Spearfish this weekend. Since son, David Neisner, was here from his home in Freemont, Ohio, he went along. This reunion is held every other year or so. Jo’s mom was expected to be there as were all four of Jo’s sisters. Marie Addison attended the regular Wednesday meeting of her quilting group in Kadoka last week. The group makes quilts for the children’s home in Rockerville. Afterwards, Marie stopped at the Kadoka Nursing Home and had a good visit with Kate DeVries. On the way back to Murdo and to make it a full day, she stopped to see her grandson, John Addison, and family northeast of Belvidere. On Sunday, Marie came to church in Belvidere per usual. Grace McKillip came with her from Murdo as she often does. Grace is from this area originally since she is a sister to Vernie Sampson, Blanche Dolezal and Dorothy Blom. Joy Dolezal recently spent a week near Deadwood with her dad, Jim Ramey. He is normally helped some by Joy’s sister, Jane, but Jane had to be away since her husband was having neck surgery. Grandkids Joanna and Dale Nemec came to help her out. Jim lives at such a high elevation in the Hills that it is usually quite cool. While Joy was there, however, the thermometer read 100 degrees one day. Joy does not work at 1880 Town all that much during the summer when the snowbirds are working there, but she did help early in the season and will probably go back this fall. She does go out and do odd jobs from time to time and when someone else can’t be there. Grady Davis spent last week attending Victory Center Bible Camp near Ft. Pierre. The week before that, his brothers, Garrett and Gage, attended that camp. While his brothers were at camp, Grady spent time cowboying with his grandpa, Bob Fortune. This weekend, Francie, Chad and boys took care of their young cousin, Jaden, whose mom, Kathleen Nelson, of Philip had other things to do. Last week, Kenny, Roxie and Wade Fox sold some cattle at Ft. Pierre. This mostly consisted of dry cows, etc. While there, they got Kenny some new fishing equipment. That will be needed this week for a trip to visit Shawn and Jodi Fox at Mobridge which is next to the Missouri. Shawn is a policeman there and will be busy on the
Gant approves HB 1234 petitions
On Monday, July 2, Secretary of State Jason Gant announced that the petitions submitted for the referral of House Bill 1234 passed the signature certification process. The measure, “an act to provide incentives to teach in critical need areas, to provide for rewards for the best teachers and those teaching in math and science subject areas, to revise certain provisions regarding evaluation of teachers, to create a system for evaluating principals, to distinguish between tenured and nontenured teachers, to revise certain provisions regarding the employment of teachers, and to repeal provisions regarding the teacher compensation assistance program,” was signed by the Governor in March, and was submitted for the ballot by officials of the South Dakota Education Association. “Petition circulators submitted approximately 30,096 signatures to refer the measure to a vote. According to State law and administrative rule, we drew a random sample of 1,505 signature lines to check for validation, which comprised the required audit of 5% of the signatures,” Gant said. “From our sample of 1,505 signatures, we validated 1,289 and invalidated 216 for various reasons, including lack of voter registration, as well as other errors such as blank lines, printing the name and an improper signature date. Invalid signatures comprised 14.35% of the total signatures sampled, and under state law, the number of valid signatures sampled was sufficient for the measure to pass validation for the ballot,” Gant said. “If we extrapolate the valid signatures, as per South Dakota Law, they were considered to have 25,777, significantly greater than the 15,855 needed.” According to state law, a referral measure or an initiative petition shall be signed by at least five percent of the total votes cast for Governor in the last gubernatorial election (15,855), and a constitutional amendment requires a petition signed by at least ten percent of the total votes cast for Governor in the last gubernatorial election (31,709). Gant noted, “The 14.35% invalidation rate was among the lowest of any ballot measure proposed for the November 2012 ballot.” Recent measures submitted for the ballot included the one cent sales tax measure which had an 18.66% invalidation rate, and last years’ House Bill 1230 measure, which had a 19.74% invalidation rate. The referral of House Bill 1234 will be found on the ballot as Referred Law 16, and joins Referred Law 14, Initiated Measure 15, and Constitutional Amendments M, N, O, and P.

Mitch Moor was home for the reunion weekend to visit his parents, Marv and Deb Moor. Matthew Moor came home from Cedar Rapids, IA, and accompanied Deb to her father's Kosters/Raba family reunion in Selby. This will be the last gathering for their large extended family. Deb's sister, Dianne, husband, Jim, son, Michael, and daughter, Julie Sorem, from Dallas, TX, stayed overnight Monday at Kadoka. They were on their way to Rapid City to visit their other sister, Donna Needham, before returning home. Elaine (Stratton) Staben and daughters, Carol and Rhonda, of Bozeman, MT, visited at the home of her other daughter, Joan Enders, over the weekend. All went to Milesville on Friday to attend a Staben family reunion. Bruce and Lila Whidby celebrated their 50th anniversary last week. They spent a few days in Hot Springs and other parts of the Black Hills and on Sunday their four children hosted a party in the Kadoka City Park. Many family members attended including her two sisters, Lois Lurz and daughter of Hot Springs and Lola and Ron Hulce of Philip, and her aunt, Wanda Swan of Kadoka. The weather was hot but all enjoyed the occasion. Lester and Becky Terkildsen lost their log cabin near Roundup, MT, to a forest fire last week. He was contacted on Tuesday and on Friday was able to visit the site. He called his parents, Tom and Tootie Terkildsen, to tell of the loss. He was saddened to lose all his rodeo trophys, saddles and especially his grandfather’s saddle. Tootie also said that her brother, Bob Stephenson, who lives in Wyoming, said there are at least 14 forest fires burning in Wyoming at this time. South Dakota is also fighting three major fires in and around the Black Hills. The Colorado forest fires are especially bad with so many homes lost. My sister, June Starkjohann, who with her husband, Floyd, lives in Windsor, CO, said that they have not even be able to be outside because of all the smoke in the area. Wheat harvest is in full swing in this area. Lots of combines are seen every day in and around Kadoka. It is hot and dry here too, although several storms pass through occasionally. Philip did get about an inch of rain Saturday night with awful wind and some hail. Jerri Sandoval, her husband and children, arrived in Kadoka last week to visit at the home of her mom and husband, Terri and Lloyd Johnston. Jerri’s husband returned to their home in Downer Grove, IL, on Monday, but she and the children will be visiting here for the next couple of weeks. Sympathy is extended to the family of Dennis Kennedy of Philip who passed away Friday. His funeral service was held in Philip on Tuesday. He is the brother of Judy (Olney) Goldhammer of Wall. Butch Struble and son, Keegan, of Lead were in Kadoka one night last week visiting his parents, Les and Muree Struble. They were on their way to Rochester, MN, where Butch had a checkup scheduled. His brain tumor has not grown and he is feeling pretty good, according to Muree. They returned on Wednesday and stopped to report on his progress before going on home to Lead. Les’s brother, Del Struble, of Belle Fourche is currently in the Rapid City Regional Hospital fighting cancer. His condition is not good. Wednesday of last week Sydne Lenox met Ella Rock, Pam and Cliff Fairchild of Sturgis, and Sharon Vaughan in Deadwood for breakfast. Sharon was to leave for her home in Newport, NC, on July 2 but planned to spend a couple days with the Fairchilds before she left. Whitney Antonsen and Skyler Patterson were married Saturday, June 30, in Kadoka. A large crowd of relatives and friends were on hand to witness their wedding and reception/dance and wish the couple many happy years of married life. Greg and Lisa Uhlir of Sioux Falls arrived in Kadoka on Thursday and spent a few days with his parents, Vernon and Hellen Uhlir, and visited other relatives and friends. They had been to the Black Hills and spent some time with her sister, Charlene Sieler, and had been at the activities of the Miss South Dakota pageant. They returned to their home on Saturday. Jeff Willert was scheduled to participate in several rodeos last week, but the site of the prorodeo.com was shut down for awhile, so there were no scores available. According to the daily paper, he was to ride in Belle Fourche on Monday; then on to Cody, WY, July 3 and to St. Paul, OR, July 4. Jamie Willert participated in the ranch rodeo in Belle Fourche over the weekend. Because of the early news deadline this week, scores will be in next week’s paper.

Changes to open meetings laws take effect July 1
Two changes to South Dakota's open meetings laws will clarify when public meeting agendas are posted and how the public can participate in certain public meetings conducted by teleconference. The changes are among many new laws approved by the Legislature last winter that take effect July 1. Public boards that are subject to the state's open meetings law will now need to make sure their meeting agenda is posted in a place accessible to the public for at least a full 24 hours prior to the meeting. The agenda also must be posted to the public board's website if the board has an online site. The new law stems from complaints taken up by the state's Open Meetings Commission. People who had filed complaints with the OMC argued the old law did not fully explain how far in advance of a public meeting an agenda notice needed to be posted. Some argued they could not get sufficient advance notice of a public meeting because the agenda had been posted in a public building lobby not accessible other than during normal business hours. Rep. Burt Tulson of Lake Norden represents a legislative district where one of the agenda-posting complaints brought before the OMC originated. Residents in the Willow Lake School District filed a complaint regarding the posting of an agenda for a school board meeting. "I think it's important that the public can see the meeting agenda, especially when offices are closed," Tulson said. "I think this law strikes a good balance. Many (public boards) were posting agendas already." Sen. Ried Holien of Watertown also was one of key sponsors of the new law. "This law was necessary to protect public oversight of government," Holien said. "This law strengthens the people's right to know and to offer input. Without ongoing vigilance, like the kind this law provides, any level of government could begin to, whether on purpose or by accident, operate in secret." Holien agreed that the new law should not be too burdensome for public boards. "This was a concern of mine when drafting this legislation," Holien said. "While we wanted to protect the public's right to know, we also did not want to make government less responsive or more bureaucratic. Therefore, we made compliance as easy and flexible as possible. I do not see any difficulty in complying with this law." A second change to the open meetings laws requires public boards conducting meetings by teleconference to allow the public to listen by phone or the Internet in certain circumstances. If less than a quorum of a public board is present at its designated meeting location, then arrangements must be made for the public to listen by telephone or the Internet from anywhere. Under the old law, the public would need to go to the public board's main office if it wanted to participate in the board's teleconference meeting. Sen. Al Novstrup of Aberdeen sponsored the teleconference legislation. A frequent critic of the administration of the James River Water District, Novstrup said he became increasingly frustrated when he would have to drive from his home in Aberdeen to the district's office in Huron if he wanted to listen to a district board's teleconference meeting. "It wasn't that the meeting wasn't open, it wasn't available at a price you could afford," Novstrup said, citing instances where members of the public may drive 200 miles in order to listen to a public meeting that may last only 10 minutes. Novstrup said the change will affect state boards and commissions more than local government boards. State boards are more frequent users of teleconference meetings, often because the board members are from various locations across the state. By SDNA News Service

Society for Range Management tour
Last fall at the Society for Range Management annual meeting a local Jones County producer was recognized for their outstanding conservation efforts. Valburg Limited Partnership was presented with the Area III “Excellence in Range Management” award. The nomination for this award was submitted by the Jones County Natural Resource Conservation Service (NRCS) office and is awarded to producers that show outstanding conservation efforts. On July 26, 2012 the Valburg’s will host a tour of their place to visit and show attendees the conservation practices they have implemented and the benefits they have seen. Jim Faulstich, Vice Chairman of the SD Grassland Coalition, will speak on his mineral program and winter grazing practices he follows on his place. The day will begin with registration at 9:00 a.m. and will conclude about 2:00 pm. The public is welcome to attend and a meal will be served at noon. This award is given to each of the four designated geographic areas of the state. Area III covers a sixteen county region of central South Dakota that runs from the North Dakota boarder to the Nebraska border. The nomination for this award is judged in four different areas: Community Involvement, Land Management, Livestock Management and Innovative Practices. Implementing conservations practices just doesn’t happen overnight it evolves with time. Conservation practices on the Valburg ranch began over forty years ago in 1966 when William (BJ) working with the Jones County NRCS and the Jones County Conservation District to provide him technical assistance to implement the first conservation practices on this place. Now son Barry, as Valburg Limited Partnership, continues to take part in conservation programs aimed at treating resource concerns. Through the use of different Farm Bill programs, Valburg Limited Partnership has installed pipelines, watering facilities, and added cross fences to help with grazing distribution. Working closely with the Jones County NRCS office a rotational grazing plan has been developed for Valburg’s to follow to insure even grazing through all the pastures. Tate Lantz, Area Resource Conservationist, commented on an occasion he was at Valburg’s “The Valburg’s are very conscientious about how they manage their grass and I was impressed by the variety and diversity of the different grasses on their place.” There is no cost to attend but for meal planning purposes please contact the Jones County Conservation office at 669-2404 ext. 3 by July 13th if you plan on attending. This tour is sponsored by the SD Society for Range Management, SD Grassland Coalition, Jones County Conservation District, Jones County NRSC, South Central RC&D, Dakota Prairie Bank and First Fidelity Bank-Murdo Branch.
First West Nile detections reported
South Dakota is reporting its first West Nile virus (WNV) detections of the season, a positive mosquito pool in Brookings County and one in Brown County. “This will be the eleventh year of West Nile transmission in South Dakota and it may be tempting to be complacent,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist for the Department of Health. “We need to remember that it can be a serious, even fatal illness, and get in the habit of protecting ourselves by using repellents, limiting exposure, and getting rid of mosquito breeding spots.” To prevent mosquito bites and reduce the risk of WNV, the department recommends: •Use mosquito repellents (DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535) and limit exposure by covering up. •Limit time outdoors from dusk to midnight. •Get rid of standing water that gives mosquitoes a place to breed. In SD peak transmission of WNV is July through early September.

Wheat harvest time
last Thursday and began cutting Friday afternoon south of Kadoka. Eddie, Leo, Shane and Heath Popwell keep the family business running smoothly. In Kadoka, they are currently running three John Deere combines along with all the support equipment. Popwells have been coming to this area for 30 plus years cutting for various farmers. This picture was taken at Scott Patterson’s. This is the earliest they have ever cut wheat in South Dakota. --courtesy photo

State’s NCLB waiver proposal receives approval by Dept. of Ed.
South Dakota’s waiver for flexibility from key provisions of No Child Left Behind has been approved by the U.S. Department of Education. “This marks a new era in accountability for South Dakota schools,” said Dr. Melody Schopp, secretary of the South Dakota Department of Education. “This model offers a balanced and meaningful approach to measuring school performance. Rather than focusing almost exclusively on a single indicator, it encompasses multiple measures that indicate how well a school is performing. It also sets goals for continuous improvement that are lofty and yet attainable.” According to Schopp, components of the model will be phased in over time, with full implementation in the 2014-15 school year. “We wanted to be thoughtful and purposeful and take our time in order to do this right, which is why we have delayed implementation of certain pieces of the model,” she said. The model is based on a School Performance Index, or SPI, which consists of five key indicators. Each year, schools will receive an SPI score of 0 to 100, with each of the indicators worth a certain number of points. Indicators are different at the elementary, middle and high school levels. At the elementary and middle school levels, the five indicators include: Student Achievement, which measures proficiency on statewide assessments in reading and math; Academic Growth, an indicator of student growth over a period of time; Attendance; Teacher and Principal Effectiveness; and School Climate. At the high school level, the Academic Growth indicator is replaced by a High School Completion indicator, and the Attendance indicator is replaced by an indicator of College and Career Readiness. “The annual SPI score is the first lens through which we can look at schools. It’s designed to be a broad picture of key indicators, and it will give school leaders, teachers, parents and the public an idea of how their schools are performing against these criteria,” Schopp said. The SPI score will be reported annually and will be used to recognize schools whose scores rank among the top 5 percent (Exemplary Schools) and to identify those Title I schools that rank among the bottom 5 percent (Priority Schools) for targeted interventions and support. “The model also incorporates a second lens that allows us to delve more deeply into what’s happening with groups of students,” Schopp said. This “second lens” focuses on the Student Achievement indicator and how subgroups of students perform on assessments. Under the new model, South Dakota has set a goal of reducing by half the percentage of students who score below the proficient level on the state tests in reading and math within six years. The 2012-13 school year will be the baseline year. Within each school, each subgroup of students will have unique annual targets to get them to that point. “This approach continues to shine a spotlight on student groups that need extra attention and support, but it also recognizes that all of our students and student groups have different starting points,” Schopp said. South Dakota’s model includes the use of what is referred to as a “Gap Group,” which is an aggregate of student subgroups that have historically experienced achievement gaps. It also uses an unduplicated count of students. Under the old system, a single student may have been counted multiple times depending upon the number of subgroups he or she belonged to. The new system will count each student only once. Schools that make their annual targets in reading and math will be able to earn additional SPI points for that accomplishment. South Dakota also will use student achievement, attendance and graduation rate data to identify additional Title I schools (Focus Schools) for targeted assistance and support. “This model sets high but realistic goals for continuous improvement. It relies on multiple indicators, and recognizes schools that are high performing as well as those making significant academic gains,” Schopp said. “While we have much more work to do, it’s a huge step in the right direction.”

Haakon/Jackson 4-H Horse Show, June 14 in Kadoka
The Jackson/Haakon County 4-H Horse Show was held in Kadoka on Thrusday, June 14 with several entries. Judge Eris Tanner hails from Hermosa SD. She shows paint horses and has competed at the national level. She donates time to 4H judging horse shows, putting on clinics and is also a club leader in her own county. Eris travels with her husband, Gerald, who helps time events and set patterns. They denied any compensation for the day they spent judging the horse show, or for travel. Eris also put on the fitting/showmanship clinic help in Kadoka in May. 4-Hers who purpled in any event earned the right to enter the State 4-H Horse Show, held in Huron on July 24, 25 , and 26. Youth at the state show can also compete in Horse Quiz bowl, Hippology contest and Horse Judging, without having to take a horse. They can also enter their horse public presentation, if they received a purple at the county level, and present it at the state show. The deadline for entering the State Horse Show is July 1. Shaina Solon and Gage Weller, who qualified for state in several events, took the opportunity for more practice in the showpen, and traveled to the Mellette/Jones Co. 4-H show on June 20. They earned several more purple ribbons and gained more confidence and tips from the judge to prepare them for State Horse Show.
