Kadoka High School Alumni Reunion June 22, 23 & 24, 2012
The official newspaper of Jackson County, South Dakota
As of July 28, the Jackson County Farm Service Agency office will be officially closed. From this date forward, all FSA program services will be provided by the Haakon County FSA office unless a producer has elected to transfer his/her records to another county. The Haakon County FSA office is located at 409 N. Wray Avenue, Philip, and the phone number is 859-2186. Currently, the Jackson County office has two remaining employees, Colleen Peterson and Stephanie Uhlir. The third person, Brian Stewart, had transferred to Pierre. The FSA has offered an employee buy-out of $20,000 to retire and to retire early if the employee meets the minimum service for retirement. The Philip FSA office has six employees – Duke Westerberg, Don Weller, Kyle Bachand, Tanya McIlravy, June Huston and Tonya Kramer. The office has three private offices, and one main work area where three program technicians work. There is a Farm Loan Program presence in the office. There is room for one more employee, especially considering the Jackson County FSA workload will be transferred to Philip. Westerberg said that there are no plans to either remodel or increase the building size of the Philip office. On May 29, South Dakota FSA received approval from Secretary of Agriculture Tom Vilsack to proceed with the implementation of the county office consolidation plan, including four county offices in South Dakota. “Over the past three years, FSA has faced a variety of budget related challenges,” said Bruce Nelson, administrator of the FSA. “Through a targeted office consolidation effort that includes 125 offices nationwide, FSA is striving to balance significant budget cuts, staff reductions and increasing workloads while focusing the efforts of our staff on high quality service. There are 2,119 offices remaining in the FSA network to do just that.” “Although we recognize that change is never easy, we strongly believe that taking this action now is critical to ensuring FSA can continue to serve its customers as it adjusts to budget constraints,” said Nelson. “FSA can only achieve the high level of service expected through consolidation of our human, financial and technical resources." For more information, contact the South Dakota Farm Service Agency office at (605) 352-1160. The South Dakota State Executive Director is Craig Schaunaman. --by Ronda Dennis The Kadoka City Council met Mon., June 11 in the annex to hold their monthly meeting. There was a public hearing to discuss the sprinkler progress at the Kadoka Nursing Home. Marlene Knutson of Central SD Enhancement District said the project is approximately 80% finished. There has been a couple of change orders: one to the sidewalk along the east side where there is a drainage problem and the other is for the soffit around the sprinkler pipes. Both orders have been sent to Rural Development for approval. There were six malt beverage license renewals approved. The council reviewed the only engineering quote for the fire alarm system. West Plains Engineering, Inc. out of Rapid city estimated a cost of $12,000. The city’s plans are to finance the engineering this year and do the actual work next summer. Members of the council questioned the amount of the proposal and asked if other quotes could be obtained. Other companies were given the chance to submit proposals, but nothing was received. Council person Ryan Willert asked if there could be additional fees for unforeseen change orders. The same company was used for the Kadoka Nursing Home project and Ruby Sanftner said, yes. A motion carried to accept the proposal from West Plains Engineering. Kenny Wilmarth presented the planning and zoning comprehensive plan, which the committee approved at a recent public hearing meeting. He said there were a couple of language changes made and the committee was now turning it over to the city council. “You can do what you want with it,” Wilmarth told the council. Wilmarth said the planning and zoning committee will be holding their first of many meetings dealing with planning on Wed., June 13 at 7:00 p.m. in the city annex. In order to move forward the city will hold a public hearing at their next council meeting on July 9. The notice will be advertised for two weeks prior to the meeting. The city council can then vote on the plan. If approved, the taxpayers can refer it to a vote. Council discussion followed with Brad Jorgensen saying zoning doesn’t start new businesses, they will start anyway. Ryan Willert, on the other hand, said this is a road map for the city. The annual generator maintenance agreement with Interstate Power Systems was approved in the amount of $525. Through the water/sewer department, Jackie Stilwell requested approval to be a member of SD Warn. She said there are no fees. Patrick Solon reported that the city shop needs a new sewer line, which will require cutting through the floor and replacing the line. He also said the oil burner furnace doesn’t work and it would cost over $1,000 to fix it. Solon said Brian Hanson will be getting prices on a propane furnace. The culvert at the nursing home was discussed. Solon said it is long and he doesn’t know if the city can get it cleaned out if it is plugged. Colby Shuck asked what it would take to get a couple more street lights in the darker areas of town. The city will check with West Central Electric on costs. Solon also said there is a need for new rain gutters on the north side of the transfer station. Under the liquor report, JoBeth Uhlir said she is ready for reunion weekend. It was also noted that there should be a seating area provided in the beer garden. The city pool is now open. Willert asked how often lifeguards need to be certified. He was told every two years. Shuck inquired about council members getting together to tour the pool. If the entire council goes,

Jackson County Farm City to hold planning and zoning public hearing in July Service Agency closing
there will need to be a posting of a special meeting because there would be a quorum. However, with only three members interested they would not have a quorum and they can do so as a committee. A council committee had previously recommended to hire Kay Reckling as girls’ softball coach. Regarding the stolen baseball equipment last year, it was noted that the restitution needs to be paid to the clerk of courts and the money given to the city. Mayor Weller told the chief of police that there is a problem with dogs running at large. Shuck asked that with all the break-ins in the past year(s), if the city could provide a list of things people can to do be less of a victim. Woody Davis said he’d put together a public service announcement for the newspaper. Willert asked permission to attend an elected officials workshop. Mayor Weller handed out council committee assignments with no changes from last year. Preliminary budget worksheets were given to the council members to start working on.

Kadoka Area High School athletes in the spotlight
Carlson has awesome track record
The Kadoka cross country team won the State “B” title in 2007 and 2008. In 2009 they took second, third in 2010 and second in 2011. “Our first state win was a big one. It was also the year that Harry Weller’s house burned,” she said. Not only was it a very exciting moment for the girls, but also boost for coach Weller, who was dealing with living in a motel. “The second year I thought we might have been disqualified and we were all in tears, but we made it,” Carlson recalled. In their third trip to state they knew they were up against a tough Lemmon team. “It was a heartbreaker, especially for the younger girls, to take second place,” she added. The girls went to summer camps. “The camp instructor said I was running hunched over and swinging my elbows, but old habits are hard to break,” Carlson said. The girls got in a lot of training when they were running cross country and playing volleyball during the same season. “It was tough, but we motivated each other,” she added. Then there was girls’ basketball season. The running didn’t stop. Carlson ran track in the spring and has a number of medals and plaques to reminder herself of her dedication and accomplishments. Carlson said she had to convince Coach Noteboom this year that she wanted to run the 400 in track. She ran it and broke some records. At a Kadoka meet she broke Trina Kujawa’s record of 1:01.3 with a 1:01.2. At the state meet, she broke her own record in 60.59. Continued on page 4

Ammons captures State B discus title
--by Dave Ohrtman Kadoka Area athletes recently had a strong showing in the twoday South Dakota High School Class B State Track Meet at O’Harra Stadium in Rapid City, and one Kougar athlete came away from the meet with a careerbest discus throw and a first place medal to show for it. Logan Ammons, who recently completed his sophomore year at Kadoka Area High School, is the 2012 Class B Boys’ Discus Champion. Ammons becomes Kadoka’s first individual event champion since Tia Carlson captured the 800meter run title at the 2010 State B Track Meet. Ammons is also the first throwing events champion since Kadoka alum and US Naval Academy graduate Tyrell Arment captured the State B discus title in 2006. Ammons had pre-qualified for the state meet, with a personal best throw of 138’ 4” at a track meet earlier this year in Sturgis. He finished second at the Region VII meet on May 17, but was unhappy with his quality of throws that day. Day one of the track meet was a cool, overcast day with occasional rain showers sprinkling the competitors and making the throwing surface a bit slicker than usual. He did not, however, let the conditions deter him from topping his previous personal records, with a preliminary round throw of 145’ 3”. Having made the final round of eight throwers, his distance held up until he unleashed his final throw for a distance of 145’ 8” to capture the title over Tate Nafziger of Gettysburg. “Everything just kind of fell to-
--by Ronda Dennis Only being a third grader, Tia Carlson started running at a young age. Harry Weller gave her a uniform and look what happened … . At that time, she had no idea where it would take her. Sticking with it and acquiring a deep love for running has been a highlight for Tia Carlson’s athletic career. Carlson holds five records - 4 personal and one team record. She has also won two star quilts. She was encouraged by her parents, who were her best cheerleaders, and her many coaches. Carlson said she influenced Shaley Herber, Alex Smiley and Emmy Antonsen to join as a pack of cross country runners. When asked how she trained, Carlson said, “I didn’t walk, I ran.” The cross country team did a lot of running on the Word road south of Kadoka. “The gravel road and the hills was a work out. It’s tougher than the cross country courses.” Did the girls cheat in their training? “No, but we caught the boys cheating,” she said with a laugh.
--by Robyn Jones Kadoka Area High School sophomore, Chandlier Sudbeck, has earned a position on the Team South Dakota to compete in wrestling at the 16th Annual Disney Duals in Orlando, Florida. Sudbeck began wrestling at age five in the Kadoka AAU Wrestling club. “I wasn’t very good,” said Sudbeck with the a laugh, “I maybe won a match here or there, but not very many.” He enjoyed and had fun wrestling at the AAU tournaments and being around friends. But once he started wrestling at the high school level in the seventh grade, he became much more committed. That commitment paid off, when Sudbeck qualified for the South Dakota State Wrestling Tournament in the 103 weight division. “Qualifying in the seventh grade was really exciting,” said Sudbeck, “and even though I didn’t place at state, I’ll never forget the feeling of
going to state for the first time.” That experience encouraged him to practice hard and he was rewarded by earning the opportunity to compete at the state tournament his eighth grade year also. “I was a little nervous competing at state again,” said Sudbeck. “The competition is so tough.” Wrestling against some strong and more experienced wrestlers was somewhat intimidating, but Sudbeck prevailed by capturing eighth place. “I was just happy to qualify for the final round at state,” Sudbeck said with a laugh. “Placing was just a little extra.” Being a wrestler takes much dedication, it can be challenging both physically and mentally. “Making weight at each meet is always a worry,” he said. “You always are thinking about your weight and watching what you eat.” Continued on page 4
gether on those throws that I got them out as far as I did,” said Ammons, who recently finished the year in Kadoka after transferring from Burwell, Nebraska. Having competed in football, wrestling and track this year, the full year of competition, weight room and practice time paid off with a first place finish.

Sylvia (Knutson) Schultz__________________________
Pauline “Punky” Mae, and Bob Ross. They made their home in Philip. In 1937, her husband Bill was killed in an airplane accident. Sylvia continued to live in Philip, and raise her two children, as well as work with the WPA in the courthouse making men’s shirts. She also cooked at the Winchester Hotel. In 1943, she started working for the Farm Loan Association, measuring maps and aerial photos. Later that year, she was offered a position in Pierre. Sylvia and the kids moved to Pierre where they lived on the top floor of the Locke Hotel. While in Pierre, she met a service man named Matthew Nolz, and were married in 1947. Sylvia worked for the superintendent of schools and later worked in the office of the hotel. They then moved to Ohio for a short time after her children were out of high school. They moved back to Pierre where they managed both the Locke and St. Charles hotels. Her husband Matt died on January 31, 1965. After Matt’s death, Sylvia moved to California for five years before returning to Pierre. She took a job at the city auditor’s office as a bookkeeper and office manager at State Publishing Company. It was there that she met Philip Schultz. They were later married on November 8, 1980. They made their home in Pierre, and Sylvia continued to work for the publishing company. In March of 1983, Philip died of cancer. Sylvia continued to live in Pierre, and in 1986, retired from the publishing company.

Letter to the Editor
Dear Editor, The front page of the Kadoka Press dated June 7, 2012 features an article informing the public of the adoption of a “Comprehensive Plan” for Kadoka spanning the years 2012 through 2037. The article states the adoption of the plan, with only 12 people in attendance, is intended to “clean up Kadoka”. Adoption by the zoning committee was accomplished on Wednesday, June 6, at 7:00 p.m. with the blessing of Justin Ostea of the Central South Dakota Enhancement District. The next meeting of the Kadoka City Council will be on June 11, 2012 after the fact of committee endorsement. I question whether the intent is to quietly slip this important document past we citizens without our knowledge. After visiting with my councilman I am informed that there will be further hearings before adoption. I hope that citizens will seek to become informed and will voice their opinions. This massive document consisting of some 52 pages authored by an environmental engineering group is truly very comprehensive. It is not until you reach page 24 that you get past the statistics and find a discouraging word. Proposed water improvements are $6,314,792.50. That is over $9,500 that must come from each of Kadoka’s 657 residents. Improve water towers, $222,500. Water distribution $5,124,800. New water meters $186,312.50. Leak detection $6,000. Clean existing system $83,950. Brick manhole replacement $671,500. Repair and rip rap pond dikes, $793,000, and the list goes on. Seems more than the 12 people who attended should be concerned. Our city officials have probably been told that it has to be done and that it will be forced upon us anyway. Further, they have been told that these proposals will not have to be implemented unless funding becomes available. That is not true. Once that control has been surrendered by adoption of this plan there will be a host of inspectors and more notices like the one we received about the sprinkler system at the Kadoka Nursing Home. OSHA and EPA and other agencies will be looking at us - and they don’t care what “compliance” will cost. Consent of the governed requires that the people or their elected officials must surrender their control. Thus adoption of this comprehensive plan is a form of that surrender. If adopted by the council we are going to be looking at a lot of taxes in the future to get us in “compliance” with future bureaucratic edicts. Get your copy of the comprehensive plan on the Internet as I did at www.kadokasd.com. It will help us all understand what the government is planning to do to us - for our own good. As a victim of several of these comprehensive plans in years past I hope I will not sadly have to say “I told you so” when the bills come in. /s/ Glenn T. Freeman PO Box 406 Kadoka, SD 57543
Read 2 Samuel 8:1-16 David served God in many capacities--from simple shepherd boy to heroic ruler. Looking at the various David: A Model of Servanthood stages of his life, we can see clearly how his godly devotion allowed the Lord to use him mightily. Shepherd: David was anointed king long before commanding anything other than sheep (1 Sam. 16:113). Protecting the sheep was a job he took seriously, even killing a lion and a bear to do so. During those days, he learned to be strong and brave, and to take care of creatures weaker than himself. An early life of obedience to his human father taught him the humility he would later need in order to depend on God. Psalmist: David's writings reveal his hunger for God. He is open about issues like fear, depression, defeat, loneliness, and sorrow. By describing valley experiences and communing with the Father in the night watches, David provided us with intimate glimpses of the God he knew so well. Commander: Starting with David's encounter with Bathsheba, the king's life was plagued by heartache, pain, suffering, and conflict. David had sinned greatly, but God forgave him and continued to use him. He ruled Israel for 40 years, and his people called Jerusalem the "City of David." His restoration teaches us about the consequences of sin and the limitlessness of God's grace. King David served God's purpose when he lived, and continues to do so hundreds of years later--every follower of Christ has been blessed by David's obedience, service, and literary skill. He is a great example of what God can accomplish through us if we yield our life to Him.

Marjorie Anne Letellier • 462-6228 Off with your hat as the flag goes by! And let the heart have its say: You’re man enough for a tear in your eye That you will not wipe away. H.C. Brunner, The Old Flag Sunday, June 3 Evan and Dorothy Bligh enjoyed attending a picnic held in Blunt in honor of Bobby and Nancy Knutson and family of Wasilla, Alaska. Bobby is Dorothy’s nephew. Monday was too hot to do anything else so James and Marjorie Letellier accompanied their daughters, Sue Larson of Rapid City and Julie Letellier of Kilgore, to Valentine to shop for plants. Monday evening Jeff Spokes and hunting party of Waterloo, Iowa, arrived at the James Letelliers for a few days of prairie dog hunting. South Dakota Primary Election was held Tuesday at the Township Hall. Norris area followed the state in the low turnout of 48 voters. Those serving on election board were: Torey Ring, superintendent, Leona WoodenKnife and Susan Taft. Evan Bligh served on the Todd County election board at Parmelee. Our hearts go out to the family of Alex “Bod” LIvermont, 66, who passed away this last week. May the Lord comfort his dear family and many brothers and sisters in our area at this time of loss. Our prayers are with you. The Jason Burmas celebrated their anniversary by all going fishing at Bauman dam. They met up with Angel Bauman and Tyrel Denton there and invited them to come home for supper. James Letellier was among those helping Joe Kary brand his cattle at Totton’s north of Norris. Others helping were a couple of doctors from the Indian Health Service from Washington, DC, and Rev. Utecht and the Lutheran Youth Group from Brandon and Sioux Falls, SD. The group were helping him with Daily Vacation Bible School in Parmelee and other community projects including painting over graffiti. Following the branding, the group were served supper at the Lord’s Warriors Lutheran Church in Parmelee by the church ladies. I am sure it was a fun time for everybody, as Joe believes, everybody should get in on at least one branding in their life. I remember, Joe inviting Washington folks to his branding when he served on election board, too. Bill and Marjorie Letellier accompanied Colleen Letellier to Valentine on Thursday. They enjoyed the trip and got a lot of business done, too. Thursday, Susan Taft and Morgan made a trip to Kadoka for seed. The Tafts helped the Heinerts and Cheyenne Schmidt brand. The prairie dog hunters that were at Ring’s stopped over to visit a bit with Maxine Allard on Thursday afternoon. She was really glad to see them. Thursday evening, Marjorie Anne hosted an early birthday supper for James with the Jason Burma family and Julie Letellier of Kilgore as guests. It was planned as a fried chicken picnic down the creek, but the storm clouds gathered and before we could even get started it was raining. We received a good half an inch and then before morning on Friday we had about an inch altogether. The moisture is sure needed with all the dry hot winds lately. Sue Larson of Rapid City came on Friday to help her dad celebrate his birthday again. That must be a sign of age, when one party isn’t enough. Susan Taft and Noreen Krogman accompanied Carol Ferguson to a meeting sponsored by the National League of Postmasters in Kadoka on Thursday night. Postmasters and PMR’s attended from as far away as Vivian, Rosebud, Milesville and Wasta. Friday and Saturday, Jason, JaLynn Burma and Beaver, Jade, Jakki and Jimmy left for Belle Fourche to attend the “Birds at Home on the Range” bird watching tour sponsored by the SD Grassland Coalition and SDSU Extension. They report a real fun time. They also got in on a rainstorm and hail at Rapid City and all the way to Wall coming home. Friday, Dorothy Bligh was headed to Kadoka for oats so Maxine Allard went along for the ride. It was a nice chance to just get out of the house and to see the countryside which is refreshing for everyone’s spirit these days. A group of friends and neighbors helped Ray and Gail Berry brand on Saturday. The Berry’s especially enjoyed having their boys home, Brent from Jamestown, ND, and Loren from Rapid City. Ed and Carol Ferguson were among the neighbors helping brand at the Berry’s on Saturday. That afternoon, Carol visited her mother, Irene Kaufman. Evan and Dorothy Bligh accompanied by Maxine Allard drove to Rapid City on Saturday. Maxine enjoyed a visit with her son, Stan, and his wife, Ivy, and grandson, Daniel, and Jessie. That afternoon Stan took her to visit her sister, Helen, and John Colton.
One Thing Follows Another
One thing tends to lead to another. Take, for example, Kate’s sour-cream raisin bars that I propose to make fairly soon for the coffee time after church. Kate isn’t here right now so we haven’t had those in a while, and they’re very good. Anyway, in looking at the recipe, I noted that it took four egg yolks for the pudding part. No egg whites are mentioned. That means you either have to throw the whites away or figure out how to use them. Then it came to me—coconut macaroons! Fayola loves those, and they’re fairly easy to make except I don’t have any coconut in the house. I’d better get some. Then there is Mary’s carrotcake recipe. I didn’t have any carrots in the house, and when I bought them I wondered, “How do I use up all these carrots?” since they were only available in a big bag. Creamed carrots are good occasionally. You can also eat the things raw, of course, like a rabbit. Unfortunately, they are much better than chocolate in the calorie department but not so much when it comes to taste. “Ah,” I thought, “a pot roast.” You know how you throw some spuds, carrots and maybe an onion in with the beef roast during its last hour or so. That can be quite fine. A pot roast it is. The roast, though, can’t all be eaten in one sitting. This might lead to cold or hot-beef sandwiches, but better yet a beef pie. I get really hungry for those now and again. Beef salad sandwiches will work too if you’re too lazy to make the pie but do have a bit of ambition. I just got done using up a chicken as well. First you eat it hot, then cold, and then what? Meat pie maybe. Better yet, chicken ala king. That’s a menu item that sometimes simply cries out to be made and served on toast or baking-powder biscuits with some jam on extra pieces you don’t put under the chicken gravy. Then we come to plants. We started out with one pot of geraniums, two of tomatoes, and a few moss roses. Now we somehow have six pots of geraniums and still just two tomatoes, but there are an additional five pots of various flowering green things with unpronounceable names. The scarlet variety of one of those is called Audrey so we call it that. Two pots of bush-type cucumbers are in the works as well. Whatever happened to simplicity? Bookwork is another area that gets you going on a certain course that is hard to stop. I just brought the church books up to date as we’re having a board meeting on Monday and they might like a financial report. I did the books on paper first and then the computer. There is no pressing need to do the ranch and personal accounts, but how do you stop when you have such a good start? I also find that cleaning and/or organizing projects tend to go on and on once you start on them. I can usually ignore piles of paper on my desk until things start falling on the floor and being hard to find, and then I have to take some action. Once started, though, the filing, throwing, and general cleanup can go on and on. Often it is needed, of course, but it is hard to cease and desist. You can progress to the desk drawers, the file cabinets, the bookshelves on the whole wall behind your desk, and so on. Similar things can happen in the kitchen, basement, and all the outbuildings. The shop is badly needing some cleaning and organizing at present, and that will have to happen pretty soon and hopefully before the mess drives me right around the bend. Incidentally, wife Corinne is more apt to get carried away on cleaning projects than I am, but it can happen to me too from time to time. She, for some odd reason, always likes her world clean and well organized while I’m not quite so sold on the idea. It then appears, that one should carefully consider all the consequences before starting on almost anything. You might find yourself on a course that is hard to alter or bring to a stop. I should know. I’ve just been dealing with excess egg whites and carrots.
Uncle Evan and Aunt Dorothy Bligh were thrilled to be a part of their Knutson niece and nephews reunion held in Rapid City at Ritten’s cabin in Boulder Canyon on Saturday. Kristi arrived from Minneapolis, Bobby from Wasilla, Alaska, Andy from Denver and Nick in Rapid City. The group enjoyed watching little Tanner’s Tball game in the afternoon and later paid a visit to a new downtown square. They hadn’t all been together since 2006. Sunday evening, Andrea Beckwith arrived home at Norris after spending ten days in Honduras with a missions group from Sunshine Bible Academy. The group of ten including her sister Cassie, worked at a Youth for Christ Camp. Ask Andrea about diving off of cliffs by waterfalls and exploring caves under them. She is full of exciting tales. She is back at work today at the Todd County Tribune. And by the way, Honduras is the most dangerous country in the world for journalist. Several folks from this area braved the heat and attended the Devota Hutchinson household sale in White River on Saturday afternoon. It was an enjoyable and educational day as many items were precious to those of us in Mellette County alone. The sad part of the
whole event was that it meant Devota is leaving town. She has been an important part of everything in White River all her life and you could tell by the many historical items at the sale that White River is very much a part of her, too. She was a great one to keep folks informed and was in touch with everyone. Devota wrote the local news for many years and worked on the centennial books. She was on the school reunion committee last year, too. If it was happening in Mellette County, chances are that Devota was a part of it. She and her husband ran the Thoroughbred Motel along the highway and she served on the city council for many years; she was one of the best promoters the town ever had. Devota Hutchinson will be making her home in Kearney, NE, surrounded by family. She will be able to enjoy grandchildren and spoil little great grandchildren, too. We wish you the best -- you certainly gave us your best. We will miss you! Remember to proudly fly your flag on Thursday and don’t forget the 2nd Annual Buckin’ Horse Fast Pitch Tournament is slated to begin here on Friday, too. The new ball diamond is green, mowed and ready. See you there! Have a great week!
This picture was taken west of Cactus Flat at the Big Foote Road. The storm ended being state wide. Baldwin said he dodged the storm while fishing at Pactola, again at WalMart and in Wall. Many travelers found shelter from hail under the overpasses. Kadoka received an inch of rain in the storm. --photo by Jerry Baldwin

KCBA discusses possible changes to 800 number
--by Ronda Dennis KCBA met for the monthly meeting on Thursday, June 7 at the H&H Restaurant. Treasurer Cindy Wilmarth said the balance on hand is $14,354.09. There were two bills to be paid: Music Parents calander listing, $4.32 and Traveler’s Magazine, $4,800. A third bill to CBS Outdoors was once again tabled because of no verification that the sign has not been done. Under old business there were reminders of upcoming events including Tri County Ag Day on Friday, the 4-H Horse Show on Thursday, June 14; KCBA will be serving lunch to the contenders. Discussion continued from last month’s meeting regarding transfering the city’s 800 number to KCBA. The number would then go to a central reservation system in Spearfish. Secretary Patty Ulmen said last month’s bill was 63¢, however, with the change, would raise to at least $24 a month. She recommended to leave it as is. Ken Wilmarth said the system is more than reservations. KCBA would include whatever information they wanted on the listing, including the updated information for Kadoka. There were pros and cons. Some felt more information could be given if the number stayed at the city office. On the other hand, the central reservation system would be available 24/7. It was noted that Wall and Murdo are on the system. KCBA will obtain more information and continue discussion at the next meeting. It was also reported that Bob Fugate still needs to talk more with the school regarding updating the sound system at the auditorium. Patty Ulmen said the city is being required to install a fire alarm system. This year they will be working on engineering and next summer the system will be installed. Between this project and refinishing the floors at the auditorium, she said the alumni will not be able to hold their Sunday dinner at the auditorium next year. Insurance is due in July and the premium has dropped from $679 to $610. The next meeting will be held on Thursday, July 5.

Francie Davis • 605-920-8484
Crystal Paulson has been enjoying her daughter, Davina Spoonemore, and granddaughter, Keeghan, who are up from Texas to visit. They arrived Friday, spent some time down in Sioux Falls over the weekend visiting Davina’s husband’s family. Keeghan will be going to Victory Center Bible Camp over near Ft. Pierre this week, and Davina will get a short break from mothering and get a chance to catch up with Crystal. Crystal also shared that her son, Leonard, will be a first-time father in December. Leonard is in Sioux Falls, so Crystal should be able to see the newest addition to their family a little more often than the other grandbabies! Abby and Colter Carlson enjoyed Kip and Jessica Magelky’s wedding in Flandreau over the weekend, where Abby was one of the attendants. Abby’s parents kept the girls for the weekend, so Abby and Colter were able to not only celebrate Kip and Jessica’s wedding, but also their first anniversary! Happy anniversary Abby and Colter! Bob Fortune celebrated his 64th birthday with Charlie, Eve, and Abigail Fortune, Chad, Francie, Grady, Garrett, and Gage Davis, his mother, Edna Fortune, from Quinn, hired hand TC and special guest Mel from England. His birthday party was a covert operation headed up by Eve, who picked up cake and Edna on her way home from Rapid City with Mel. She and Mel played “tourist”, visiting Bear Country USA and doing some shopping. They picked up Edna on their way home, and converged onto the ranch house, joining the Davis’, and a very surprised Bob. He, Charlie, and TC had been up north of Philip synchronizing heifers all day, and had only been back for a little while. Eve also smuggled home a little special something for Abby. She and Charlie found her a longhaired dachshund puppy, and Eve brought her home that day as well. Abby, of course, was beyond happy, but had decided to wait a day or two before naming the little dog. Chad and Francie Davis and boys spent the weekend in Pierre helping Chad’s folks with some moving and remodeling projects. The boys had their hearts set on camping, so they set up tents in the front yard. Friday night was pleasant enough, but the storms that came through Saturday night sent everyone running for the house. The next morning was spent looking for one of the tents. It apparently was airborne for awhile, and was found two houses away in a tree row. Francie and sons took a break from all the work and went down to the river with Chad’s sister and nephew, Austin. Austin also spent last week at the ranch with Chad and Francie. Jodie O’Bryan celebrated a birthday last week also. She turned 52 on Friday, and met the day with the usual large smile in place. As she says, “I’m still hot! It just comes in flashes now!” She is keeping busy running the Diner at the 1880 Town, and helping Scott out when she is home, in-between working with her barrel horses and hosting clinics.
Still enjoying a wagon train at 95 … Harold and Mary
Schnee (far back in the wagon) spent Friday, June 8 in the Badlands riding in a mule powered wagon driven by Jim Emory of Piedmont. Harold started the Badlands Ride over 25 years ago and was able to enjoy spending the day with friends that he and Mary have made through the years. Asta Amiotte hosted for the wagon train which included 22 wagons and 123 saddle horse riders. --courtsey photo

Tia Carlson shares memories of high school cross country/track
“I wanted to just keep running,” she laughed thinking lap after lap. Her high school career is over and she’s nervously looking forward to cross country at SDSU this fall. “I have to run 400 miles this summer which will be about six miles a day,” Carlson said. The girls ran four miles daily for high school cross country. She already misses running, not to mention the companionship and motivation from her teammates. Carlson has earned a half tuition at SDSU, where she will be studying nursing and running cross country and track. “I’m nervous, but excited to compete at the college level where the field of contenders will be so much larger,” Carlson said. She’s ready, and maybe someday she will run a half marathon. Listing her favorite sporting events in order, track topped the list, followed by cross country, basketball and volleyball. Carlson was honored to be named the senior female athlete of the year. Training and diet are important to this runner. She said she eats a light breakfast and keeps herself hydrated on track days. “Well maybe a half a banana,” she said. But most important, she always ate her Grandma Lillian’s homemade noodles and chicken the night before a meet. “I will need to get her recipe to take to college,” she laughed.

The community sends sympathy to the family of Alex “Bod” Livermont, 66, who died suddenly at home on June 5. His memorial service will be held in Kadoka on Saturday, June 16, at 2:00 p.m. at the Kadoka Presbyterian Church with burial in Kadoka Cemetery. An Anderson family reunion was held in Salina, KS, over the weekend. Attending from Kadoka were Bud Weller, and Orville and Shirley Josserand, and June and Joe Wanczyk of Wall. About 56 relatives from South Dakota, Kansas, Colorado and Iowa were present for good food, visiting and touring a museum. The Josserand’s, Bud and Wanczyk’s all returned home late Sunday night. Carmen and Tim Huffman traveled to Wessington Springs on Friday to stay with Casey and Curtis Huffman. On Saturday they all went to Storm Lake, IA, where Curtis ran in a full marathon, which he won in two hours and 38 minutes. The marathon started at 6:00 a.m. and awards were given out at 10:00 a.m. with many marathoners still crossing the finish line. On Sunday before coming home to Kadoka, the Huffmans went to Madison and had lunch with their son, Keith. Mary and Harold Schnee attended the Badlands Wagon Train event on Friday at the Asta Amiotte ranch near Interior. There were lots of people and wagons there for the weekend. Harold and Mary enjoyed riding in a wagon most of the day Friday, and Harold would have liked to have gone back Saturday, but they decided they should rest up. They were tired but enjoyed a wonderful day on Friday. Nick and Rhonda Willert and Trinity stopped briefly on Sunday to see Joyce Hicks and Oliver Willert. They had attended the Kipp Magelky wedding in Flandreau on Saturday and were on their way home to Aurora, CO, when they stopped to see the grandparents. Trinity will spend part of the summer with her dad and Rhonda before returning to her home in the Pierre area. Several Kadoka friends and family were also present at the wedding. Nona and Kieth Prang attended a 20th wedding anniversary party on Saturday night honoring Zane and Sharrie Pettyjohn. On Sunday they accompanied Brett and Tammy Prang and Trey Carlson to Valentine, NE. Trey will be visiting at the home of Gabe and Lonnie Jo Doney and family for a while. The Prangs all returned home later that day. Nona says that her brother, Ted, is doing pretty good after having pacemaker surgery last week and is staying with family in Rapid City for awhile before he goes back to his apartment in Sturgis. The Shorty Ireland family had a large family reunion in Kadoka over the weekend. Some of the relatives spent Friday at Custer State Park and then all were in Kadoka for Saturday and Sunday and enjoyed events at the Kadoka City Park. There were “dozens of cousins” in attendance including six sets of five generations. Michael Vigus of Freeman and Paul Vigus and a friend, Julia, of Sioux Falls arrived at the home of Sydne Lenox on Friday night. On Saturday they and Linda Vigus and grandson, Julian, all went to the Black Hills to spend a couple days. Mike Lenox of Greenwood, IN, got to Kadoka Saturday morning and will spend a week here with his mom. The Vigus family have returned to their homes after having visited here for several days during the past week or so. Jeff Willert gave his grandfather, Oliver, a schedule of his rodeo appearances for the next few weeks. He was to take part in a Matched Bronc Ride in Greybull, WY, on June 9 and then to Marwayne, AB, Canada on June 10. No results on those events yet Monday. He is scheduled for next week to be in Innisfail, AB, June 14; Philip, the 15th; Reno, NV., June 19, 20.

She took third and second place, respectively. And there’s the medley record of 4:23.5 set by Tess Byrd, Victoria Letellier, Shaley Herber and Tia Carlson on May 12. The medley team was rated number one going into state, however, Carlson did not compete and the team did not qualify in the prelims.
Continued from front page “The one I was really wanting to get was the 800,” she added. At state this year she broke JoAnne Herber’s 2:21 in 2:18.80 and she took second place. Last year Carlson broke the 1600 meter record of 5:26.7 that JoAnne Herber set 32 years ago with a time of 5:19.43. In the 3200 meter all she was going for was the Kadoka school record. Carlson broke the record of Callie Ireland’s 11:55.2 with time of
She admits to watching the clock in track which helps keep her on track of how high to push herself. She never cared for short relays.

Congratulations to these Kadoka Area High School athletes!
Chandlier Sudbeck slated to wrestle at Disney Duals
viewed as an individual sport, what you put in it, is what you get out of it. “Wrestling is a two part sport,” he said, “it is part individual and part team. You need to have the drive to work hard, but you also have your teammates there working just as hard with you and cheering for you along the mat.” At each wrestling match individual scores are kept, but team scores are also compiled. “Our coach (Matt Donnely) is always good with however you do on the mat, but when the team scores high, it makes him pretty happy.” Wrestling is a challenging sport, but Sudbeck has been inspired by those around him. “My cousin, James, has been a real motivator for me, along with my coaches,” said Sudbeck, “and my parents have always been there and encouraged me, too. “I really like wrestling, but in the future and considering college sports, I’d like to maybe pursue football,” said Sudbeck, “but that’s a long ways off, so who knows,” he said. But as he continues to be a competitor on the mat, Sudbeck continues to succeed. As a sophomore Sudbeck qualified for the SD State Tournament in the 145 weight division. Wrestling at the state level was tough, but Sudbeck wrestled strong, clinched fourth place and ended his season with a record of 31-11. And it was this placing that gave him the opportunity to be a member of Team South Dakota and compete at the Disney Duals, but along with the placing, there is a strict criteria that each team member must meet. Many wrestlers are considered for the team, but the South Dakota AAU Association selects the final team members. In order to be considered for the team, the wrestlers must place at state, be willing to continue to train until the duals, be recommended by their peers and have strong academic scores, along with several other requirements. Team South Dakota will compete in the Community DII division and more than 115 teams of 14 wrestlers per team have registered. To prepare for the duals, Sudbeck has been training with Coach Donnely in Philip twice a week, but as time draws near, that will increase. On June 26, Sudbeck will travel to Beresford, SD, for weigh-in and he will be competing in the 145 weight division. After some practice there, the team will leave on June 28 for Orlando, FL. “Not knowing anyone on the team or the coach makes me worry some, but I’m really excited to go,” said Sudbeck. Once in Florida, the teams will have additional practice time and competition will be held on June 30 through July 3. “After the wrestling is over, we also get the chance to go to a couple of amusement parks,” said Sudbeck, “which will be good to have some fun. “I’m excited go, a little nervous, but regardless of how I wrestle, whether I win a match or not, the experience will be worth it,” concluded Sudbeck.

season. He finished with a 31-11 record. --photo by Dayle Knutson Continued from front page Although moving up to the 145 weight division this year, making weight has not been such a concern for him this year as previous years. “I really don’t follow any diet during wrestling,” said Sudbeck. “At school I usually eat a lettuce salad for lunch and sometimes a lite supper at night, but I’d chew a lot of gum and eat ice cubes to keep my mind off being hungry.” But once I make weight and weigh in at the meet, I go have a really good meal,” he added. Along with the maintaining weight, Sudbeck commented that losing the weight really slows down the quickness and speed on the mat. “Training is so important and staying in shape,” he said, “can be hard on your body otherwise.” The sport of wrestling is often

The 8th Annual Soils Days, and 29th Annual Rangeland Days, are scheduled for June 19-20 in Philip, S.D. and at the SDSU Cottonwood Research Station. The two coinciding events provide an opportunity to learn more about two of South Dakota's most important resources - soils and rangelands.Learning activities have been designed for a variety of age groups and expertise, from eight years old through adult. Starting with plant morphology and identification through judging habitat suitable for cattle or grouse, everyone attending Rangeland Days is sure to gain from participating. Divisions are determined by experience level and age as of Jan. 1: New Rangers (8-10 years old); Wranglers (11-13 years old); Scouts (14-18 years old); Go Getters (14-18 years old); and Old Rangers (adults). The Scouts division is for students who have little or no range judging experience. After a day of active learning, participants have the opportunity to measure how much they have learned by participating in a contest, again, designed specifically for their age levels and expertise. The adult program will include numerous presentations where participants will learn about some of the research that has been going on at the Cottonwood Research Station including: a Long Term Stocking Rate Study, Patch Grazing Research, and High Sulfate Water Research. There will also be some demonstrations on working with Rumen Fistulated Cattle, Rainfall Simulator Demonstration, and Rangeland Monitoring Procedures. During lunch there will be some time to look at some research posters of other research being done at SDSU. There will be a cost for Soils Days and Rangeland Days which includes meals. Pre-register by contacting the Haakon County Conservation District, PO Box 130 Philip, SD 57567. Call Jennifer Jones with the Haakon County Conservation District with any questions or to register at (605) 859-2186 ext. 3 Both Soil Days and Rangeland Days are hosted by: Haakon County Conservation District; Jackson County Conservation District; SDSU Extension and the Natural Resources Conservation Service.

Saddle Bronc Chute-Out coming up in White River Hosted by the Michael Glynn Memorial Coalition
Rodeo fans should saddle up and head to White River, SD on Saturday, June 30, 2012. That is the date scheduled for the second annual Saddle Bronc Chute-Out, hosted by the Michael Glynn Memorial Coalition. This year’s event will be held at night, under the arena lights. “Michael always loved to ride under lights,” Joyce Glynn said. “We installed the lights at the White River arena a few years ago as a memorial to him. He would be thrilled to know this event will now be held at night, under his lights.” The bronc riding will begin at 6:30 p.m. CT with the first round calcutta. Twenty-five cowboys will ride in this first round, with the top 12 combing back for the second round, and another chance to take home some prize money. The final round will consist of the top 6 riders from the second round. A calcutta will be held for each round of riding. Prize money will also be given to the top riders in each round. With a $5,000 purse added to the contestant’s entry fees, there will be a total of $7,500 in prize money awarded throughout the three rounds. Last year, eight of the twentyfive cowboys took home prize money of at least $400. The top winner ended up with total winnings of nearly $2,400! “This year we already have contestants from three states registered,” Glynn said. “So far, we’ve got riders coming from South Dakota, Nebraska and Wyoming.” As of now, the 25 slots for riders are filled, but other prospective contestants are encouraged to contact the entry office and be placed on stand-by in case someone ends up cancelling before June 30. Some of the current contestants registered include Jade Blackwell, who is a former Arizona State High School saddle bronc champion, and currently riding in the collegiate finals. Also entered is Dillon Nipper, who is a consistent finalist in the Rocky Mountain Bronc Riders Association. Brothers Ty and Derek Kenner are entered again this year. They were the top prize winners last year, and are top contenders at nearly every rodeo they compete at. Round that out with names such as Eric Addison, Lane Hall, Chase Miller, Wyatt Kammemer, Lane Stirling, Tyson Beck and Cory Jobgen, (just to name a few) all riding Hollenbeck Rodeo Co. horses, and you can be assured of seeing some great saddle bronc action. This event, as all events hosted by the Michael Glynn Memorial Coalition, is alcohol-free. “We know the tragic consequences of drinking, and drinking and driving,” Glynn explains. “We want, especially young people, to know that you can have a lot of fun, even at a rodeo, without having alcohol involved. We don’t want anyone to drive away under the influence of alcohol.” Representatives from The Rodeo News magazine plan on being at the Chute-Out this year, and will feature the Michael Glynn Memorial Coalition and winners of the Saddle Bronc Chute-Out in an upcoming edition of the magazine. The Rodeo News is the official magazine of a large number of high school, state, Little Britches and amateur rodeo associations. “They heard about this event, and were really moved by the fact that we’re determined to keep it alcohol-free,” Glynn said. “We’re excited about the national exposure they will give this event!” In addition to prize money for contestants, there will be prizes and gifts for spectators too. “We’ve got some really fun, and healthy gifts lined up for everyone who comes through the gate,” she adds. “And just like last year, we’ll be giving free root beer floats to everyone who agrees to stay alcohol-free the whole weekend.” Gate admission is $10 for adults, and $5 for youth ages 6-12; up to age 5 is free. Concessions will be available on the grounds. No drugs or alcohol will be allowed, nor will anyone be allowed in who appears to be under the influence of alcohol. For more information, you can contact Roger or Joyce Glynn at 3442533 or 441-5389, or e-mail rjglynn@gwtc.net The Michael Glynn Memorial Coalition was formed following the death of Michael Glynn in 2006, who died in an alcohol-related car crash the morning after his high school graduation. Michael was a rodeo athlete, whose passion was bull riding. The mission of the Coalition is to offer opportunities for youth and adults to become or stay alcohol-free, and avoid the dangers and tragedy that surround underage alcohol use.

Livestock handling practices discussed at Tri County Ag Day near Cottonwood
Pat Guptill, Quinn, moves his electric fence so that a group of heifers can change pastures. A tour of Guptill’s operation was part of the Tri-County Ag Day. Guptill moves the heifers every day at about the same time and they were waiting for him and moved easily into the next pasture. --photos by Nancy Haigh by Nancy Haigh Tradition – doing what has always been done, but is it the right way? Are new practices a better approach? In many instances, one generation has taught the next generation that working livestock means pushing, yelling and prodding the animals. Veterinarian Dr. Tom Noffsinger’s approach is vastly different with results that are paying off tremendously. Noffsinger said experience through his vet practice and working with feedlots he noticed how feedlots with similar cattle yielded different results. The differences were in efficiency and health; with the weather conditions, implants and health being the same. He said the difference was in the people who handled the cattle. Noffsinger said people can be good for cattle or people can be bad. How people treat the cattle has an impact on the animals. Noffsinger noted that livestock will tell a person what they want through body motions. It is learning that communication that Noffsinger focused on at the Tri-County Ag Day at the South Dakota State University Cottonwood Range and Livestock Research Station west of Philip, June 8. Noffsinger stressed that a person should not get behind the herd and push. “It is easier to pull than push,” he said. He said animals will ask for guidance, some more so than others, until they all learn to trust the person. Noffsinger said as a person walks into a herd one animal or more will focus on the person. He said to use that animal to lead the rest. “If the front animal is stopped, no use pushing from the back.” Noffsinger touched on America’s perception of the cattle industry. “Inappropriate handling episodes occur when handlers don’t understand how to perform the tasks,” he said. “Why do people do these things? Because they haven’t been trained and are doing things they shouldn’t be doing in the first place. We’ve got to take care of this.” To correct this, Noffsinger demonstrated some handling aspects on video and using audience members. “If you can’t see the animal’s eye, you are in the wrong place. Cattle die to see you,” he said. Where they can see you best is the front, the worst, is straight behind. “The animal can’t stand to have you behind and will turn to see you,” he said. A producer needs to communicate to the animal’s eye. He stressed that you didn’t want to look the animal in the eye, but look at them to get their attention. Noffsinger said four things come into play in working with animals – the person’s body position, their distance from an animal, the angle and direction the person moves and the speed at which the person moves. Animals generally should be worked at a 45 degree angle, this is so they can see the person with one eye while watching the other side with the opposite eye. “If they watch you with both eyes, they mistrust you,” he said. The deeper the angle, the more pressure. Regulating speed is done with parallel motion. “It may take 10 feet or it may take a half mile,” he said. “Cattle have poor depth perception. Don’t stand still, move slightly so they can see you,” said Noffsinger. Moving slightly, he said, is to move weight back and forth on the feet. “A full step is too much.” Noffsinger noted that if you want an animal to move forward, rub from the point of the shoulders down the back. To move it backwards, start at the rump and rub forward. He said to also watch a momma cow get up her newborn calf. The momma cow will encourage the newborn calf to get up by licking from back to front. Then when the calf is raising up, she licks from the front to back. When the growth of the animal is interrupted, such as at weaning time, it can take weeks for that animal to start performing again. A producer needs to start sensitizing the calf as soon as it is born to do what we want. “It’s all mentality,” he said. Start training them at birth – train them for change of address, first at birth, next is going out to pasture, and finally weaning. Noffsinger spoke of how one producer, prior to branding and weaning, would separate the pairs the first night, reunite them the next morning, separate them again the second night, and then brand or wean the third morning. He noted the calves adjusted to the separation much easier. Local producer Pat Guptill has used Noffsinger’s approach successfully in his operation. The ag day attendees traveled to where Guptill had heifers pastured on a high intensity grazing rotation. With high intensity grazing, the animals are kept in a smaller pasture and moved on a regular schedule. The acreage varies each year on pasture conditions and number of animals. Guptill said the old way required a half day of labor, with humans and animals both being tired at the end. This way, he said, he and one other person can have the animals moved and a new fence up within 30 minutes. The time is shortened considerably if the fence doesn’t have to be moved. Guptill typically moves the cattle at about the same time of day. The day of the demonstration the cows were waiting quietly in the corner. Guptill had the electric fence open, the cattle moved and the electric fence back up in five to 10 minutes. The cattle moved quietly through the hole and immediately with no urging from Guptill. Noffsinger observed that the cows went right to grazing and were grazing with who they wanted to graze with; without upsetting anything at all. Guptill noted that it takes about three days to train the cattle, although some take a little longer to trust him. Noffsinger said he learned from Bud Williams, Independence, Kan., one of the first to teach low stress livestock handling techniques. He said Williams learned from watching kelpie and border collies. “What he teaches us is what is deep inside a border collie or kelpie.” He also earns the animal’s trust. Noffsinger suggested producers check out Internet websites www.stockmanship.com (Williams’ website); www.cattlexpressions. com; and beefcattleinstitute.org. Videos of Noffsinger’s technique can also be found on You Tube.

Managing for Reproductive Success:
Inseminator Efficiency Part II of a four-part Series
Fertility is influenced by many factors, and one of the best methods to look at factors that influence fertility is with the 'Equation of Reproduction,' says George Perry, SDSU Extension Beef Reproductive Management Specialist. Perry explains that the 'Equation of Reproduction' includes the following four areas: •Percentage of animals detected in standing estrus and inseminated; •Inseminator efficiency; •Fertility level of the semen and; •Fertility level of the herd. Standing estrus was the focus of the first article in this four-part series on managing for reproductive success released by SDSU Extension. This is the second article in the series and will discuss inseminator efficiency. Inseminator Efficiency Cows not detected in estrus have no opportunity to conceive. In artificial insemination systems, that opportunity to conceive when a cow is detected in estrus also depends on another limiting factor, "Inseminator Efficiency," Perry says. Based on research, Perry says that fertilization rates don't differ between animals following natural service or artificial insemination (AI). He points to a study which flushed embryos following insemination. The data showed that fertilization rates following natural service or artificial insemination (AI) in cattle range from 89 to 100 percent. Furthermore, when pregnancy rates from 13,942 first service artificial inseminations were compared to 6,310 first services by natural service, no difference was detected between artificial insemination and natural service. "With AI, inseminator efficiency is influenced by semen handling and the ability of the technician to deposit semen in the correct location," Perry said. To improve semen handling, he encourages cattle producers to have a detailed inventory of semen easily accessible, so that straws may be located and removed from the tank quickly to avoid exposure of semen to ambient temperature. "When removing a straw from a liquid nitrogen refrigerator, it is imperative that the technician keep the canister, cane and unused semen straws as low as possible in the neck of the tank," Perry said. He adds that it is best to keep all unused straws below the frost-line in the neck of the tank. The temperature of liquid nitrogen in a semen tank is -196 degrees Celsius (C) (-326 degrees Fahrenheit, (F)). Sperm injury (as judged by sperm motility) occurs at temperatures as warm as -79 C (-110 F), and injury to sperm cannot be corrected by returning semen to the liquid nitrogen. Site of Deposition Many studies have compared site of deposition on pregnancy success, says Perry. "Some studies have reported increased conception rates when semen was deposited in the uterine horns rather than the uterine body, but other studies have reported no difference in fertility when comparing uterine body and uterine horn inseminations," he said. "Furthermore, an inseminator and site of semen deposition interaction has been reported, with evidence of either an increase, decrease, or no effect of uterine horn deposition on conception rate for individual inseminators." Perry says it is not clear why some studies have shown an advantage following uterine horn insemination while others have not. "A possible explanation for the positive effect of uterine horn inseminations may be related to the minimization or elimination of cervical semen deposition," he said. "Studies have reported cervical insemination errors account for approximately 20 percent of attempted uterine body depositions, and cervical insemination resulted in at least a 10 percent decrease in fertility when compared with deposition of semen in the uterine body." Based on this information, Perry says in order to maximize conception rates, AI technicians must continue to manipulate the reproductive tract until the tip of the AI gun is past the cervix and deposition into the uterus can be accomplished. "Clearly, all AI technicians must develop sufficient skill to recognize when the tip of the AI gun remains in the cervix," he said. Simultaneous Thawing When numerous cows must be inseminated on a given day, multiple straws of semen are routinely thawed simultaneously to facilitate AI. Research from the University of Idaho determined simultaneous thawing and sequence of insemination (1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th), and elapsed time from initial thaw to completion of fourth AI had no effect on conception rate within inseminator group; however average conception rate differed between groups which were treated by a professional AI technician and those serviced by a herdsman-inseminator (45% vs. 27%, respectively). The researched looked at the following: a) The effect of simultaneous thawing of multiple 0.5-mL straws of semen and sequence of insemination (1st, 2nd, 3rd or 4th) on conception rates; b) Whether conception rates achieved following AI by professional AI technicians (PAI) and herdsman-inseminators (HI) differed; c) The effect of elapsed time from initiation of thawing straws of semen to seminal deposition on conception rates. Perry says this research reinforces the important role handling plays in conception. He adds that conception rates are most likely maximized when personnel: a) Follow proper procedures for thawing semen; b) Prevent direct straw-to-straw contact during thawing of multiple straws; simultaneously to avoid decreased post-thaw sperm viability as a result of straws sticking together; c) Use appropriate hygienic procedures; d) Maintain thermal protection of straws during AI gun assembly and transport to the cow; e) Deposit semen in the uterus of the cow within approximately 15 minutes after thawing.

The youth were working toward a HOSTA certificate, allowing them to legally do farm work for someone other than their parents. With the re-organization of SDSU Extension, Nicolas Uilk, Instructor in the Ag and BioSciences Department at SDSU, is conducting the HOSTA program in South Dakota. The program began at 10:00 a.m., with classroom instruction, safety demonstrations, and videos being presented until 12:00 noon. Lunch was pizza, followed by the written test, and the skills and driving tests. Thanks to Grossenburg Implement for donating the use of a tractor and utility trailer for the program. Look for the dates and locations of the HOSTA programs in 2013. For more information, visit the South Dakota HOSTA website: http://www.sdstate.edu/abe/extension/hosta/index.cfm.

Anytime Exercises Physical activity is vital to good health and disease prevention. According to the CDC (Centers for Disease Control), increased physical activity can help you control your weight, improve your mental health, reduce your risk of disease, strengthen your bones and muscles, and increase your chances of living longer. The CDC recommends that every adult should try to participate in a weekly total of at least two hours and thirty minutes (150 minutes) of moderate physical activity. Try to do at least 10 minutes of activity at a time, shorter bursts of activity will not have the same health benefits. According to the U.S. Department of Human Services, more than 60% of U.S. adults do not participate in the recommended amounts of physical activity and 25% are not active at all. Many people do not feel as though they are able to participate in physical activities because they are unable to fit in thirty minutes of exercise per day or they don’t have the resources to do so. Everyone can benefit from being physically active. Physical activity improves quality of life and can
help reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, type 2 diabetes and some cancers. Strength training activities help people gain and maintain muscle mass and build strong bones. Studies have shown that mental health is often improved with physical activity. Fitting physical activity into a daily routine can be as easy as taking a brisk 10 minute walk. Other ways to increase physical activity include anytime activities such as walking the dog, mowing the lawn with a push mower, playing basketball, planting and caring for a vegetable or flower garden, play with the kids, when shopping at a mall--park as far away as possible, or try using a rake instead of a leaf blower. Lastly, don’t forget to clean your house. Vacuuming, mopping and dusting can be quite a work out. Being physically active and eating healthy are essential to our overall health. We cannot gain the full benefits of one without doing the other. So plan to eat well and stay active. It is never too late to start exercising regularly. For additional ideas for increasing your activity go to: physical http://1.usa.gov/bg6vTr .

Start scouting now for grasshoppers
South Dakota faces the possibility of destructive grasshopper outbreaks every year, and predicting those outbreaks before they happen can be challenging. Experts look at current weather conditions and survey data from previous years to predict what might happen this year. While a widespread outbreak is unlikely, the potential is definitely there for isolated problem areas across the state. Early scouting is the key to effectively controlling problem grasshoppers. Grasshoppers go through five nymphal stages before adulthood. They are most susceptible to treatments as nymphs. Once grasshoppers reach adulthood, they are much tougher to control. Since they begin laying eggs immediately, spraying too late will not break their life cycle. Grasshopper densities across South Dakota reached historic levels in the summer of 2010. Last year threatened to be one of the worst grasshopper years since the early 1930s, but Mother Nature intervened. Early warmth followed by a cool wet May and June helped keep the grasshoppers in check naturally. Newly hatched grasshoppers are very susceptible to cold, wet weather that increases the prevalence of bacteria and disease that can cause mortality. Although those weather patterns helped to limit early hatching species, late hatching species thrived with surplus vegetation, moderate temperatures, and a late frost. Perfect conditions late last summer will likely result in escalating grasshopper population numbers this summer. Reports have been received in the past two weeks of hatches starting in the southern tier of South Dakota counties and progressing north. If the hatch progresses at a normal pace, mid-June will be the perfect time for control activities. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture, USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, and SDSU Extension Service will be collaborating to keep the public informed about grasshopper conditions and provide producers with tailored information on grasshopper treatment options. Agriculture is South Dakota's No. 1 industry, generating nearly $21 billion in annual economic activity and employing more than 80,000 South Dakotans. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture's mission is to promote, protect, preserve and improve this industry for today and tomorrow.
