Jackson County seeking input regarding fate of license service
At a special Jackson County Commissioner’s meeting on Friday, June 29, the commissioners will be seeking public opinion on two items. The first agenda item at 7:00 p.m. will be for public discussion on submitting an application to the State of South Dakota for a Community Development Block Grant in order to assist with the financing of a library project. The county expects to apply for up to $515,000 from the CDBG Community Projects Account to be used for the proposed project which will cost approximately $600,000. The purpose of the hearing is to receive comments regarding the application from members of the county and to assess the community development needs of the county, prioritize them and identify the activities to be undertaken to meet the needs. At 8:00 the commissioners will hold a second hearing to discuss the future of providing driver’s licensing service -- whether the county should continue providing the service. Input will be taken from not only Jackson County, but surrounding counties. Since entering into the agreement with the South Dakota Dept. of Public Safety in 2004, many of the state wide services have been reduced or eliminated across the state. Jackson County receives $5.00 per license fee and the workload has increased throughout the years. The county is considering hiring additional staff for the increased workload. People travel a long distance to obtain their licenses in Jackson County, which is available Monday through Friday. The next nearest place to renew or obtain a license is Murdo, Mission or Martin; some of these sites only offer the service on limited days. The State has denied Jackson County’s request for allowing the county to retain one-half of the license fee. According to a legal notice, “If funding is not found, the commissioners are considering discontinuing the services.” For persons unable to attend this meeting, written comments may be sent to: Jackson County Commission, PO Box 280, Kadoka, SD 57543

Fourth of July fireworks safety encouraged
With retail sale of fireworks beginning on Wednesday, June 27 in South Dakota, State Fire Marshal Paul Merriman is asking residents to play it safe this July 4th. Mayor Harry Weller has announced that it is illegal to set off fireworks within the Kadoka city limits. However, he said, fireworks will be allowed at the baseball field on July 3 and July 4, providing there is no other activities going on. Fireworks sales are legal from June 27 through July 5 in South Dakota. Fireworks may be discharged in the state during that same period, unless local ordinances set tighter limits. Cities may adopt more stringent limits on use of fireworks. It’s best to check local ordinances and regulations. Fireworks are a traditional part of the Independence Day celebration, but every year there are a few injuries and some unintentional fires. This year, conditions across much of South Dakota are extremely dry, and everyone needs to cooperate in using common sense with their fireworks. Don’t combine different types of fireworks or try to explode homemade ones. Keep a source of water handy and never try to relight a dud. While sparklers are popular with younger children, they can cause painful burns and should be used with adult supervision. Have a happy and safe holiday.

South Dakota history & heritage
ized the open gateway from earth to heaven. A broken ring meant the family circle was severed. A lamb was often seen on the gravestones of those under 16 and meant innocence or youth. An inverted torch meant sudden death or the sudden loss of an adult life. Symbols often reflected membership in an organization or military service. A Sears and Roebuck Catalog from about 1912 offered different tombstones and styles that people could order. “So if you see several stones with the same pattern, there is a good chance they were ordered through the local market,” Hanson said. The meaning of gravestone carvings has changed over the years. Wheat or corn stalks once symbolized ripe old age, but now it can mean the deceased was a farmer, Hanson said. “Since 1950, with modern etching, you see about anything as far as tombstone markings -- rodeo scenes, airplanes, farm machinery, or a portrait of a person,” Hanson said. Motion sensors make it possible for a recording to turn on when people walk by the gravestone and light sensitive lamps turn on when the sun sets. “Back 100 years ago you wouldn’t think of putting a lamp at a grave, but now, a light at the gravesite is a modern symbol of remembering the spirit of that person,” Hanson said. This moment in South Dakota history is provided by the South Dakota Historical Society Foundation, the nonprofit fundraising partner of the South Dakota State Historical Society. Find us on the web at www.sdhsf.org
The Meaning of Gravestone Carvings To walk through a cemetery is to walk through history. “A gravestone is something tangible to remember that person by. When I drive by a cemetery, the first thing I look at is the older section. I’m curious about the style and design of the gravestones and the names on the gravestones,” said Virginia Hanson, archivist at the State Archives of the South Dakota State Historical Society, located in the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre. She often lectures about genealogy and the meaning of gravestones. Wood was a common material used to mark graves from the 1840s to about 1910 in South Dakota. “People often ask me why we have so many unmarked burial sites. A reason is the markers possibly were made of wood. Wood only lasts so long,” Hanson said. Names cut in wood became less visible as the wood weathered.
Some wooden markers were consumed in prairie fires. Large rocks were also used to mark the location of graves. Some of the earliest gravestones in South Dakota were made of local stone, with the name of the deceased and year of death carved by hand into the stone. Symbols were added if the family could afford it. “Carvers charged by the letter, so if there was a lot of carving in the gravestone, that was quite an investment,” Hanson said. Many of the symbols carved on a gravestone reflected the nationality of the deceased. A Celtic cross might symbolize someone who came from Ireland or Scotland, and an iron cross might denote the German-Russian people. Some of the common carvings on tombstones in South Dakota were flowers, gates, butterflies and broken rings. Flowers symbolized condolences, grief or sorrow, while closed roses meant brevity of earthly existence. A gate symbol-

John Robert Whitford, 81, of Hot Springs, SD, was born March 28, 1931, in Carter, SD, to Frank and Clara (Craw) Whitford. John passed away Thursday, June 14, 2012 at the Hot Springs VA Medical Center after a very brief illness. After John attended grade school in Carter, he attended high school in Winner, SD, and graduated in the class of 1949. John had just begun attending Black Hills Teachers College when he was drafted into the U.S. Army for the Korean War in 1950. John was sent to both basic training, advanced basic training and when he was done was loaned to the French Foreign Legion. He was stationed in Fontainebleau France and was a secretary for the head of NATO at the time. Upon John's discharge he returned to college at Black Hills Teachers College where he met his future bride, Irene Cummings. They were married May 29, 1955, and made their home in Spearfish Vets-ville while he finished his undergraduate degrees in education, history, and English. John taught at Winner High School and attended graduate school in the summers at the University of South Dakota. During his tenure in Winner, his daughter Mary was born. He achieved a master's degree in psychology in 1961. John received a scholarship to the University of North Dakota to pursue his doctorate in psychology and completed most of the program before choosing to leave in fear of not being employable in school systems at that time with such a degree.

It was while living in Oelrichs that John underwent emergency medical technician training and was a founding member of the Oelrichs Ambulance Association.

Letters to the Editor
Dear Editor, I agree with Mr. Freeman 100%. I am against zoning and Horizons. When a person can go on another person’s property and tell them what to do and how to do it. It is my opinion that this is communism. /s/ Stephen Riggins PO Box 43 Kadoka, SD 57543 Dear Editor: I am grateful that a Kadoka city council member stopped by and straightened me out on some things. Seems that some on the city council are adamant that the Comprehensive Plan is “our plan”. However, I understand that environmental engineers, Schumacher, Paul & Nohr, authored it at substantial expense to the city using statistics furnished by local officials. First, all those figures quoted in the proposed Comprehensive Plan amounting to millions of dollars are very stale. The council has known this for some time. Anyone that has contracted knows there is a great difference between what is estimated cost and what is a bid basis. Subsequent inflation has further has increased costs. Six million may not cover the expansive dreams of city planners. That is only a part of the vague parts of the Plan, as follows: Page 6, “A comprehensive plan impacts not only persons living in the study area, but also those residents residing and working throughout the Kadoka area”. On page 7 “zoning districts” are mentioned without specifics. Chapter 4, Page 17. “To sustain an environmental strategy that supports an interworking relationship between the physical and built environment and also protect the air and water quality to ensure public health and safety for the residents of Kadoka”. Lawyers would call this “boilerplate” and it sounds eerily familiar from another comprehensive plan I have read by the same authors. Page 19. “For all new construction in Kadoka, planning and engineering must be used as tools to mitigate against hazards posed by hilly topography, high degree of slope and soil instability”. Chapter 6, Page 28. “Land use defines the physical landscape and provides justification for zoning in a community”. Page 30. “A city is obligated to assess its development constraints when planning for future growth in adjoining areas. They must coordinate with the county on all matters concerning annexation. Comment: We need more information on annexation. Further down, same page. With the current comprehensive plan only focusing on land within the City's incorporated limits the commission felt that combining the industrial district with an Agricultural designation would simplify the future land use map. See comment above. Page 31. All lands being annexed by the city shall be placed in a No Use designation till the City's Board of Adjustment is able to conduct an investigation and study of the proposed land use of the existing area. For this reason, the Commission felt the future land use map should contain lands outside the City's Limits to be classified under this designation”. Comment: Sort of like the rancher who didn't want to own all the land - just that joining his property. Page 46. “ - - - - extraterritorial jurisdiction for the purposes of promoting health, safety, morals and general welfare of the community”. Comment: Define “extraterritorial”? Isn't it a stretch to have control of “morals” in a comprehensive land use plan? Nancy Pelosi's is famous for saying, “We have to pass the bill to find out what is in it”. In my opinion the goal is a scheme to wrest control of Kadoka from the elected city officials. Later we will find what the E.P.A. and other appointed government functionaries in Washington D.C. and Pierre think is good for us. The plan is certainly comprehensively confusing. /s/ Glenn T.

Inspiration Point
A Training Course in Obedience
first lesson in following the Lord. Peter's initial interaction with Christ seemed insignificant. We can assume Jesus asked Peter for the use of his boat, which meant that the weary fisherman put aside his cleanup duties in order to steer the craft for an itinerant preacher. It was a small decision, but the reward was noteworthy. Peter had a frontrow seat for the message Jesus proclaimed to the crowd on the beach. The future disciple was convinced of Christ's authority because of what he heard. Therefore, he obeyed Jesus' second request to let down the nets for a catch, even though doing so contradicted everything he knew about fishing. The results were miraculous--a catch so great that a second boat had to come and take part of the haul. Jesus was gently easing Peter into a place of absolute obedience. The fisherman's brief but compelling history of submitting to the Lord's will and experiencing His blessing convinced him that giving up everything to follow Christ was the wisest choice. The rewards for that decision are both innumerable and immeasurable. Peter's experience of increasingly demanding calls to obedience and sacrifice isn't unique. That's how the Father teaches His children to follow His will. So don't assume a decision is insignificant--God is setting you on a course to fulfill His good purpose for your life. Choose to obey Him always.
Read Luke 5:1-11 Decisions we consider insignificant may actually be important in God's eyes. Obedience in the small details prepares the believer for obedience in all things. Today's passage shows that Peter experienced a gentle

“Worry is like a rocking chair; it gives you something to do, but doesn’t get you anywhere.” Capsule Sermons Last Monday, Jesse Ferguson went to Rapid City on business. Ed Ferguson was in Kadoka and Dimock Friday on business. Those helping Ed celebrate Father’s Day Sunday were Pete and Marla Ferguson, Irene Kaufman, Gene and Margie Popkes and Jes Ferguson. He received calls also from son Cole Ferguson and daughter, Cora Brickman, from Rapid City, who were unable to attend. Jim and Marjorie Letellier were in Philip and Kadoka on business Monday of last week. Tuesday Gary and Alice White of Ebart, Michigan, arrived with their two foster sons, Damian and Jeremiah, and that began a number of days of visiting and activities while they were here. Sue Larson of Rapid City and Julie Letellier of Kilgore came to visit with them, as did Maxine Allard, JoAnn Letellier and Ray and Gail Berry. Damian and Jeremiah wanted to sleep outside in a tent while here, but the weather drove them inside all but one night. The same was true about the picnic planned by the creek, the third time it was planned it finally happened. Gary and Alice were impressed with how clean and neat the town of Norris was. Friday they headed for Pierre to visit with the Beckwith family. Saturday the Hershey State Races were held in Pierre. Beaver, Jade and Jakki Burma had all qualified in regions, enabling them to run in the state races. There to cheer them on were the Burmas, the Beckwiths, the Whites, Sue Larson, Jim, Marjorie and Julie Letellier, and some of Don and Anna Mae Letellier’s children and grandchildren. After the races, they all congregated at the Beckwith’s for more family time. Cassie Beckwith of Pierre attended the Eldon Marshall “Skills and Drills” basketball camp in White River Friday afternoon. She then spent the night with her sister, Andee Beckwith of Norris. The Mellette County Cattlewomen met Thursday afternoon at the museum in White River, hosted by Jan Endes. Joining Jan for the meeting were Donna Adrian, Rose West, Jeannine Woodward, Eunice Krogman, Jean Kary, June, Michael and Matthew Ring, and Noreen Krogman. Jean Kary heard from her niece, Cindy Brunson, that a tornado narrowly missed them, but the rain and hail storm did not. They had much damage to windows and buildings from the hail. Bill and Kenda Huber drove to Centerville for parts last week. Nicole Huber and boys were in Kadoka for the weekend activities. Friday Braeden wanted to sleep in a tent, and Nicole had it all set up for him, and then went into the house for more supplies. About that time the wind hit, and when they headed out for the tent, it was no longer there. Another campout foiled by the weather! Nette Heinert was a visitor at the Robert Ring’ home last Monday. Robert and Sharon Ring were in Rapid City for a doctor appointment last Tuesday. Daughter Debbie was also in Rapid City for a meeting and met with her parents afterward. Rev. Denke took his Jeep to have the air conditioning serviced one day last week. Meanwhile the air conditioning unit at the parsonage blew up, which fouled up the furnace and had it blowing air into the rest of the house that was over 100 degrees. He was more than ready to leave the house on Saturday to head for Wall for a family reunion. It was hosted by his Uncle Henry’s family. He was happy to see so many cousins, some of whom he hadn’t seen for 25 years. Last Tuesday’s supper guests at the Jan Rasmussen home were Dan, Dawn and Kate Rasmussen, Dawn’s parents, Derald and Darlene Christians, Chuck and Brita Tesar, and Milou, their exchange student from Denmark. Milou stayed with Jan for a few days, and also spent time with Kate, as they are the same age. Toward the end of the week, Dan and Kate took Milou to meet Chuk and Brita in Wall. The Tesars headed back to Rapid City and flew back to their home in California. Janice Ring’s sons, Keith and Mike, both spent some time with her this past weekend. After Mike headed back to Highmore on Saturday, Janice and Keith drove around and did a little sightseeing and visiting, stopping in to see Rueben and Janice Ring and Robert and Sharon Ring that evening. Linda Ring worked all day at the post office in Rosebud on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Thursday she took Jeremy and Tyler to Murdo, where they toured the auto museum, had lunch at the new Subway at the truck stop, and then Jeremy had his appointment to have braces put on his teeth. Friday she worked all day at the post office in White River. Thursday the Ring’s moved the bulls out with the cows in various pastures. Sunday afternoon Torey, Jeremy and Tyler were busy making sure the electric fence on the O’Bryan place kept the bulls and cattle where they belonged. Lori Schmidt is at her summer job of making CDA visits in the state. She had places to go around Sioux Falls, and while there also visited her mother. Daughter Brandi accompanied her to Sioux Falls. Monday and Thursday of last week, Dan, Susan and Morgan Taft were in Rapid City getting parts for their well. Wednesday they helped Evan and Dorothy Bligh work their yearlings. Friday Dan and Susan were in Martin for parts. Samantha is in student intern nursing this summer, but had a three day weekend and came home. Richard and Noreen Krogman welcomed son, Glenn, home this weekend. He moved from Alaska to Fargo, ND, in May. He went back to Fargo Sunday. Saturday the Krogman’s went to Mass and then to the church picnic, which was held at the Catholic Hall. Sunday afternoon Noreen was in Mission for the DNP quilting session. Also there were Rose Ruff and Laurene Emery. Rose had been visiting former DNP quilter, Carol Brooken, and brought greetings and supplies from her. Cliff and Elaine Krogman have granddaughters spending some time with them. The Krogmans have been getting some haying done, too. Visitors at the home of Alberta, Cliff and Pam Allard Thursday evening were June, Michael and Mathew Ring. While Alberta showed the many quilts she had just had machine quilted and visited with June, Pam took the twins out to the shed to play with kittens, and Cliff was kind enough to wash and shine Alberta’s car, so it was ready for her to drive home to Yankton on Saturday. Evan and Dorothy Bligh worked yearlings on Wednesday with the help of neighbors. Friday they were in Pierre for a doctor appointment. The 25th, was devoted to branding! Patrick Lehman and fellow team members did themselves proud at the National Shooting Sports competition in Grand Island, NE, this past week. They placed 3rd overall. Blake and Amy were there cheering them on, and then went to Lincoln, NE, to get in on the Motor Cross Day of National SAE For-
Bugitarian Efforts
I’ve been being a humanitarian today. Wait. Make that “bugitarian.” I’ve been giving aid and succor to bugs, not humans. As it happened, I was drinking some coffee on the deck this morning and noticed a little black beetle upside down on a steel plate by the door. As you have probably observed, beetles have trouble righting themselves once they land on their backs on a flat surface. There he was ineffectually pawing the air trying to find something to grab so he could turn himself over. There was nothing available. Eventually I tired of watching this hopeless situation and held a little stick next to him that he could grasp, which he had the sense to do. I then placed him on the deck where he promptly fell over onto his back again and started boxing the air. “Enough of this,” I said, and booted the fellow off into the grass where at least there were more things for him to clutch in case he flipped over again. What puzzles me somewhat with beetles is that, as far as I know, they have wings. Why can’t they lift themselves enough with one wing to flip over. Maybe their wings only move in tandem so one can’t be moved by itself. The other possibility, of course, is that beetles are so extremely stupid that it never occurs to them to use their wings for anything other than flying. It’s a poser, but there you are. Normally speaking, I have no real concern for bugs. If they insist on smashing themselves against my windshield, I don’t really care except for grumbling that I can’t see out the window very well after they smear themselves all over it. I particularly have no concern for grasshoppers and often purposely step on them. Crickets are similar. I especially despise having crickets in the house since they will sooner or later start chirping and driving me crazy. They are also frustrating in that they seem able to jump every time just as you try to step on them so you look fairly silly stomping around the room in pursuit. In this regard, I tend to think of a neighbor we had near our house in town when I was going to school there. We called her Aunt Ellen although she was not a relative, and she was a fairly thin, elderly Norwegian lady. She hated crickets and always tried to step on them when she noticed them. That, as we said, is tricky, so seeing a little whitehaired lady stomping across the room tended to be somewhat humorous. She would be sputtering at the same time which made it even funnier. Now, when I go high-stepping across the room after a cricket, I almost always think of Aunt Ellen who was actually a very sweet lady when she wasn’t fussed up about black hopping insects. Wife Corinne will also be a bugitarian from time to time but mostly when it comes to ladybugs. She likes them a lot and has even been known to order a bag of them to help get rid of harmful insects on her fruit trees and other plants. If a ladybug gets in the house, Corinne will usually move it to a safe spot where it won’t be accidentally stepped on or otherwise harmed. Flies and millers she doesn’t care for and swats them every chance she gets, but ladybugs are her friends. Bees, generally speaking, have me in a muddle. I don’t like them buzzing around my head because they are capable of delivering a nasty sting. On the other hand, I respect the fact that they are useful in pollination and making honey. I just try to stay out of their way and let them get on with life. I do grumble when beekeepers plant a bunch of hives by the road because you’re going to get a smeary windshield every time you drive by, even if you reduce your speed quite a bit. The silly critters always fly right at windshield level and seem unable to alter their flight plan for vehicles. Well, as you can see, helping bugs can be unrewarding due in part to their lack of sense or their inability to alter the way they do things. You will find humanitarianism to be similar in that some people simply lack the ability to do well in life, either through lack of sense, poor upbringing, or maybe an addiction. If you help them once, you may have to help them again and again. That’s the way I thought it probably was with my black beetle. Later in the day, though, either the one I’d helped or a close relative was in the same place on the steel plate and ineffectually pawing the air as in the morning. Before I could rush to his aid, however, he somehow finally managed to right himself. Maybe there is hope for beetles and possibly for people as well. I like to think so.
9-1-1 surcharge to increase July 1
The South Dakota 9-1-1 Coordination Board is reminding telephone users of the 9-1-1 surcharge increase that takes effect on July 1, 2012. The 2012 Legislature approved an increase in the traditional surcharge from the current 75 cents per month to $1.25 per month. That fee is collected by all monthly billed telephone and wireless service providers, such as CenturyLink, Verizon, Midcontinent Communications, AT&T, Golden West Telecommunications, Knology, Vonage and others. In addition, the Legislature also assessed the 2 percent 9-1-1 surcharge on all prepaid wireless services collected at the retail point of sale. That rapidly growing segment of wireless users includes such companies as TracFone, Wal-Mart’s Straight Talk service and others. The surcharge, a fee imposed in virtually every state, pays the cost of operating 9-1-1 public safety dispatch centers. In South Dakota, the Legislature first authorized a surcharge in 1989. The fee has been limited to no more than 75 cents per phone line per month since then. “That’s 23 years without a funding increase in an industry that has changed almost beyond recognition in that time,’’ said Ted Rufledt Jr., chair of the State 9-1-1 Coordination Board. “Revenue from the surcharge simply hasn’t kept up with changes and rising costs of providing 9-1-1 service. Some of the additional revenue will be used to provide additional funding for the 9-1-1 centers, and some will be used to make the changes necessary to modernize 9-11 in our state.’’ As of 2011, the 9-1-1 surcharge covered about half the cost of operating the system in South Dakota. Besides the need for additional revenue to support the existing system, funding was needed for South Dakota to update the 9-1-1 system to what is commonly called Next Generation 9-1-1. Most of the existing system is based on 1970s telephone technology. With the explosive development of wireless smart phones, 9-1-1 as it exists today isn’t able to capitalize on the technology that wireless customers use every day. For example, citizens can’t send a text message to a 9-1-1 dispatch center. They aren’t able to send photos or video of crimes or suspects directly to a 9-1-1 dispatcher. Those services would be possible in the Next Generation 9-1-1 system. The surcharge increase passed nearly unanimously (SB174) during the last legislative session. A portion of the increase, 25 cents per line per month is earmarked for Next Generation 9-1-1 and is scheduled to sunset in 2018. The State 9-1-1 Coordination Board plans to start updating parts of the 9-1-1 system in the next one to two years and to have all 9-1-1 centers on the updated system by 2018.
mula Car Race competition. Jason Lehman was on the team of Eight from Brookings, and they placed 18th in a field of 88 teams, which is great, considering all the much larger teams they were pitted against. Saturday, June 16, JoAnn helped served the lunch for the Kodet sale at Belvidere. Monday she attended the Kadoka Nursing Home board meeting. Wednesday evening, JoAnn and Sharon Ring took the garden tour in Kakoka. Sunday, she attended the Belvidere alumni picnic and meeting. Marjorie and Bill Letellier finally can report a nice, clear, clean and waxed basement floor. It took a lot of elbow grease to get that project completed. The Letellier’s grandson, Cody Brown, called and reported that he is now back on the ship, although it is stationary in port in Virginia for the time being. There has been some concrete work going on at the Ring’s lately. Tuesday the Hildebrand crew poured the base for the outdoor furnace at Bruce’s, and did some work at Rueben’s that day also. Thursday they poured the alleyway for the chute and corral at Jake Ring & Sons, Inc. They also repaired and poured the entrance to the west basement door at St. John Lutheran Church on Thursday. Friday, June 15, Bruce Ring was installing a new battery backup for June’s computer at her home, and discovered that the voltage was too high. Monday Lacreek Electric came out to check and agreed with his report. Later that afternoon, a new transformer was installed at June’s. Since the washing machine had conked out earlier (apparently from the too high voltage), June and the twins went over to Bruce and Jessie’s Tuesday evening to do some laundry, and had supper with the family between loads. Saturday Matthew, Michael and June Ring took dill soup over to Maxine’s for the Saturday luncheon, and visited afterward. The twins have been helping attack the weeds in the garden and much progress has been made, but there is still a lot to do. June 18, Irene Kaufman kept a dental appointment in Valentine and then had dinner with her sister, Erna Heinert. Sunday, June 24, Irene was in Valentine for square dancing. There was a national caller there from Norfork. Ed and Carol Ferguson went to Dimock and Mitchell on Friday and Saturday on business. Saturday evening, Jesse Ferguson, Carol and Ed Ferguson, Pete and Marla Ferguson, and John Epperly of Minneapolis, MN, were supper guests at the Margie and Gene Popkes home south of Mission. John had been to Kadoka for his 50th class reunion from Kadoka High School. John said his class had a very good attendance of over 60% at the reunion. Only two members of his class are deceased.

Laurie Pettyjohn of Rapid City visited in Kadoka on Friday with her parents, Vernon and Hellen Uhlir, and took in some of the activities that night of the alumni reunion, meeting several of her classmates. She left for home on Saturday morning. Wonderful news for the Kathleen and Joe Leutenegger family this week as their granddaughter, Calista Kirby of Brookings, was crowned Miss South Dakota in Hot Springs Saturday evening. Calista was 1st runner-up last year and is the daughter of September and Cory Kirby. Her brother, Nathan, of Minneapolis as well as her parents were present for the activities connected with the pageant. Attending the Saturday coronation were Joe and Kathleen, Shawna and Rich Bendt and children, Shanesa and Wade Rhodes of Black Hawk and Starette and Kate Nash of Mitchell. Starette and Shawna had a full weekend too, as they celebrated with their classes of 1992 and 1982 here in Kadoka. Boyd and Pat Porch drove to Iowa State University in Sheldon, IA, on Saturday where they attended a veterinary reunion. They came home Sunday after stopping to pick up a granddaughter, Sienna Clement of Minnetonka, MN, who will visit here for a week or so. Their granddaughter, Katie Schoon, of Brandon recently spent a week in Kadoka visiting her grandparents. Andrea and Dustin Reutter and family of Murdo spent the weekend at the parental Rex and Nancy Totton home and to take in the activites of the alumni reunion. On Sunday Dave and Jody Totton of Rapid City visited the Tottons and Reutters. Dave is a nephew of Rex and is the son of the late Kenny Totton. Rev. Emil and Beulah Williams of Rice, MN, arrived in Kadoka on Friday to attend his 60th class reunion. They were guests of Cloreta Eisenbraun while here. Saturday night they joined Bud and Clara Belle Weller and Bob and Genie Enders and their daughter, Laurie MacArthur of Evergreen, CO, at the H & H Restaurant to reminisce about attending KHS. Clara Belle, Bob and Emil were members of the class of 1952, when ten members graduated that year. Emil likes to tell people he graduated in the top ten percent of his class. Pat Nowlin of Stoughton, WI, spent the weekend in Kadoka with his sister, Janice, and took in the events of the alumni reunion. He was to return home on Monday after he and Janice planned to visit her son in Rapid City. Janice’s son has spent several weeks in the Craig Institute in Colorado, and has been discharged from that facility after having been involved in a vehicle accident recently. Ella Rock of Sturgis and her daughter, Sharon Vaughan of Newport, NC, spent Saturday and Sunday in Kadoka, visiting friends and relatives, mostly at the Pearl Hotel on Saturday afternoon and again after they attended the alumni potluck dinner at the auditorium Sunday. They said they couldn’t talk Pam (Rock) Fairchild of Sturgis into coming to her 50th class reunion, but both ladies really enjoyed the weekend here. Ella also stated that she graduated from Interior High School 75 years ago; can’t bowl any more because Sturgis closed their bowling alley, but plays lots of cards. A few members of the Class of 1948 met at the Gateway Apartments Community Room on Friday evening. Out-of-town classmate, Ervin (Bud) Mednansky and his wife, Lori, of Bandera, TX, were present. They had been in town all week after attending his family reunion the weekend of Father’s Day. Nancy Majerus of Buffalo, WY, spent the weekend at her parents, Ardis and Bob McCormick, and took in most of the events during the alumni reunion. Also visiting Bob and Ardis was Ron McCormick of Spearfish, who took in the firemen’s dinner on Saturday.

Sympathy is extended to Marsha and Bill Sumpter and their family with the death of their daughter, Sandra Raye Mae, of Watertown. Sandra died unexpectedly on Saturday, June 16 at her home. Memorial services were held in Philip on Saturday, June 23, at the United Church. The ranch rodeo held on Saturday had a large crowd attending and was considered a huge success. About 150 people ate homemade ice cream and brownies while touring the Pearl Hotel and the firemen’s dinner was well attended. A small group attended the alumni potluck and meeting on Sunday, which had several conflicts including a large household sale and the State High School Rodeo Finals that day. Reports of activities were given by Emil Williams, class of 1952 and by Jeanne (Allen) Toro, class of 1962. She stated that 14 of a class of 21 attended their reunion celebration, with two classmates deceased. She and John Solon represented their class at the potluck. A letter was read to the group from Bertha Olson Smith of Grants Pass, OR, who paid her dues for three years and stated that she graduated in 1932, making this her 80th year since graduation. What a positive attitude! Although the attendance on Sunday was small, the food and fellowship was wonderful. Jeanne and her husband live in Chandler, AZ, moving there from Denver after she was a practicing attorney for 30 years. Other out-of-town graduates and families who signed the guest book at the Pearl Hotel included Barbara (Coller) Rokke and daughters of Maplewood, MN; Lynn (Nielsen) and husband, Don Kelly, of Sugarland, TX, and their daughter, Sue Calcagni of Salisburg, NC; Tony Struble and his wife of Elizabethtown, KY; Don and Sharon
(Kentch) Raymond of St. George, UT; Heath Hildebrand and wife of Denver, CO; Teresa (Parke) Eberhart of LaVista, NE, and her sister, Michelle (Parke) Renning of Emerson, NE. Since this reporter worked most of the day at the hotel, I missed many other names. Hopefully, the pictures of the classes will tell who all came to Kadoka for this event. Bud Olney and Lyle Klundt have both been hospitalized recently. Bud has been discharged from Rapid City Regional and is home, but as of Monday, Lyle was still being treated. Thesa Ireland stated that the Ireland Annual Wagon Train which was held over the Father’s Day weekend was a huge success. She said that there was no charge for the ride, but a donation jar was available and all proceeds went to the Sgt. Colton Derr Memorial Fund. Colton was from New Underwood and had attended the wagon train ride since he was a small boy. He died earlier this year while serving overseas. Jeff Willert had some success in the Reno Rodeo last week. He and Chad Ferley brought home some money. In the first round Jeff got an 81, tied for sixth place, winning $452. The second round Jeff and Chad both scored 82, tied for second place, winning $1,262 each; Chad got third place in average and won $2,373. Jeff was to go to Canada for three rodeos, but there were no scores recorded there for him in High River, Wainwright or Sundre. He is to ride in Greeley, CO, June 28; Ponoka, AB., July 1; Cody, WY, July 3 and St. Paul, OR, July 4. Jamie Willert took part in the Kadoka Ranch Rodeo on Saturday, teaming with Cole Reinert, Nichols Caspers and Luke VanderMay. Those results are elsewhere in the paper, but that team took fourth place.

Several of the residents joined in the reunion weekend festivities, including the hamburger feed, the ranch rodeo, the ice cream social at the Pearl Hotel and some of the class get-togethers. A few of the residents attended the Belvidere class reunion as well. No one at the nursing home was awakened by the late night music under the big tent, but the thunder and lightening during Friday night's storms disrupted the slumber of a few. The moisture is greatly appreciated and our garden has grown leaps due to the nourishing rain.

Wanblee man pleads guilty to kidnapping, aiding and abetting
United States Attorney Brendan V. Johnson has announced that William Jakeway, age 52, of Wanblee, South Dakota, appeared before United States District Judge Roberto A. Lange on June 20, 2012, and pled guilty to kidnapping, aiding and abetting. The maximum penalty upon conviction is life imprisonment, a $250,000 fine, or both. The conviction stems from an incident that took place on November 5, 2011, when Jakeway and his son abducted the victim, an adult male. Jakeway and his son, Jerett Jakeway, thought the victim had stolen a piece of property from a different family member. They traveled from Wanblee to the Rosebud Sioux Indian Reservation and located the victim. At gun point, they forced the victim out of a vehicle and assaulted him. They forced the victim into their car for the purpose of harassing and interrogating him and started driving back toward Wanblee. Law enforcement authorities were dispatched to the area, located the Jakeways, stopped their vehicle, and freed the victim. The victim suffered bruises and abrasions as a result of the kidnapping. Jerett Jakeway pled guilty to the kidnapping charge on June 15, 2012, and will be sentenced on September 11, 2012. The investigation was conducted by Rosebud Sioux Tribe Law Enforcement Services. The case is being prosecuted by Assistant United States Attorney Tim Maher. A presentence investigation was ordered, and a sentencing date was set for September 11, 2012. Jakeway was remanded to the custody of the United States Marshal pending sentencing.

Range monitoring and research outlined
by Nancy Haigh Range monitoring and research studies were discussed with attendees at the Rangeland Days and Soils Days west of Philip June 19 and 20. South Dakota State University and National Resources Conservation Service personnel presented information and discussed the findings and applications. The adult program was held at the Cottonwood Range and Livestock Reseach Station. Mitch Faulkner, NRCS rangeland management specialist from Belle Fourche, spoke about the usefulness of monitoring rangelands. By monitoring rangeland the producer can see how his/her management practices affect vegetation and the soil. The first step is to determine your objective, Faulkner said. The objective could be increasing ground cover, changing plant species or their frequency, wildlife habitat, riparian conditions, or how livestock utilize the area. The sites should be recorded at the same time each year to keep an accurate record. The time of year would be based on a producer’s objectives. Faulkner said if they are monitoring for plant vigor, or studying plants in general, early to mid-July would be an ideal time. But if looking for the amount of forage cover then September or October would be best. Faulkner stressed the use of photos in recording the sites. He said it is easy to forget exactly how a site looked when the monitoring first started. An overall landscape picture of the site should be taken and, if desired, a closeup of the ground can be taken. He suggested when doing the ground shots, take several along a 100 foot length and place an object in the picture for scale. Notes also need to be taken each time the site is checked. In addition, data such as precipitation for the year, infestations and temperatures should be included. Janna Kincheloe and Ken Olson, both based out of Rapid City’s West River Ag Center, spoke about rumen fistulated steers which SDSU will use for grazing and nutrition research. Kincheloe, a research technician, explained that personnel will manually empty the rumen and then the steers will be sent out to graze. She explained that this will allow the researchers to remove the matter, see the availability of feeds and what plants the steers are selecting. The grasses are then returned to the rumen for digestion. Also, by removing matter from the rumen the researchers can check the microbes – bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. Kincheloe noted that each type of microbe helps break down the fibers, starch and fats in the feed and they also produce enzymes which further aid in digestion. Kincheloe said the steers will be moved to McLaughlin and placed in a pasture that has a heavy prairie dog infestation. The study will check to see if the steers will graze the fresh sprouted grasses around the prairie dog town or if they totally leave that area alone and find grazing elsewhere. Attached global positioning system units will also help track where the animals graze. Olson, a range beef specialist, and Kincheloe took the group through the cannulating process. The animals are not harmed by the process in which a veterinarian surgically installs the cannulas. The animals are closely watched until the area heals, at which time they are placed on pastures. Roger Gates, range specialist at the WRAC, took the group south into bordering pastures to review grazing efficiency and profitability of pastures. Gates noted that an ongoing stocking rate study has been conducted since 1943. The study focuses on low to high stocking levels, which then reflect excellent, food and low-fair range conditions, and how each level affects the profits on each animal. Gates said grasses in the range conditions varied due to the grazing intensity. The high intensity areas tend to buffalo grass and blue grama and other warm season grasses. The lower stock rate pastures tend toward western wheat grass and other cool season grasses. Focusing on the study between the years 1969 to 2002, the net income on range in excellent condition, income averaged $9.31 per acres, good condition at $11.86 and low-fair at $11.18. Gates said that the college has always promoted the excellent range conditions, but most producers utilize the good or low-fair, because they stock the area in high quantities which are more profitable to him. In those same groups the average daily weight gain for the groups reflected those animals on the excellent range condition pasture gained an average of 1.61 pounds per acre; good were at 1.69 and low-fair at 1.56. The “Long-Term Production and Profitability From Grazing Cattle in the Northern Mixed Grass Prairie” report of the study stated, “Over the 34-year period of the study, real profit ... steadily increased ... for the low-fair and good treatments while it remained basically level for the excellent treatment. It is difficult to speculate as to the cause of these differences, but it is important to note that the profitability of the low condition pastures, which had the heaviest stocking rate, did not decline over time, it actually improved. “In our 34-year study, rangeland managed to maintain either lowfair or good range condition was equally profitable. Profit for both steadily increased over time. Excellent condition rangeland was the least profitable to maintain and profit remained stable over time. These results are consistent with generally observed rancher behavior concerning range condition decisions.” Range scientist Pat Johnson introduced a new study at the station involving native bird habitat. Johnson said the proactive study is designed to be a jump ahead of any possible bird threaten status and also to see if the use of livestock grazing can help with their habitat. Steers were placed in eight patches within the same pasture. Water is supplied in the center of the pasture so as not to be an issue. Two animals in each patch have been fitted with GPS units that record their location every 65 seconds. Personnel at the Cottonwood station monitor the height of the grasses, record found nesting sites and how they are in relation to grazing and weight gain on the steers. The study is still in its first month, but Johnson is excited about early data. Johnson said this preliminary study will be used to apply for grants so further research can be conducted. Olson discussed the high sulfate water trials that had been conducted at Cottonwood. Producers had contacted the college regarding livestock health issues which led the specialists to the problems of high sulfate concentrations in dams, especially during dry years. He stated no solution has yet been found for the problem. One thing that was found is that there seems to be a genetic disposition to the level the animals are affected by the sulfates. He noted that after drinking water with sulfates, the sulfates turn into hydrogen sulfide, a gas, in the rumen. The gas then affects brain tissue, creating polio-like symptoms and in some cases death. The change to hydrogen sulfide is caused by a bacteria, he said, so focusing on the bacteria may be an avenue. As of now there are no plans for further research regarding sulfate water. Johnson said this preliminary study will be used to apply for grants so further research can be conducted.

Tate Grimes, a 7th grade student at Interior, has been accepted into the summer SPARK program through Brown University. Students will be staying and learning at the university campus in Providence, RI. The program is for students with a passion for science; they learn about the process of inquiry and discovery and focus on the process of asking questions. In addition, they may find out it’s cool to be interested in science. Jennifer Van Pelt, the middle school teacher at Interior said, “This is an amazing accomplishment and we are so proud of Tate.” SPARK is a science program for curious middle school students who seek to spend one or two weeks at Brown’s Ivy League campus and immerse themselves in exciting science subjects, and gain the foundations necessary for further scientific inquiry. The courses of the SPARK pro-
gram expose students to science topics that are taught at Brown University. SPARK students learn science in by first focusing on the basics, and build their knowledge until they reach a deep understanding of the more advanced concepts. In addition to spending three hours per day in classes, students will take part in extra-curricular activities where they interact with students from other courses. The extra-curricular activities include field trips, other more general science experiments and lectures on diverse topics. All students who successfully complete their course will receive a certificate of completion. The 2012 SPARK courses include: •forces of nature: hurricanes, global warming, and the science of weather •the laboratory detective •from brain to sensation •so you want to be a scientist? •exploring the world of marine science •conservation of endangered species •astrobiology: the search for life in the universe •understanding the human body: an exploration of anatomy •nanotechnology: the small wonder from atom to space •can you dig it?! exploring archaeology •liftoff: designing and building for air and space •Mercury, Mars and beyond: exploring the planets in our solar system •everyday mechanics and special relativity: how did we get from Newton to Einstein?

Children from across Haakon County are ‘Wild About Cooperation’ after attending the annual Haakon County Farmers Union camp held Thursday, June 14, 2012 at Gettings Missile Inn, Philip, SD. The United Nations declared 2012 as the International Year of Cooperatives, and this year’s camp celebrated the positive impact cooperatives have had on the economy of rural South Dakota and communities across the world. The kids participated in activities and games that taught them about cooperative business, rural communities, and agriculture in a fun and safe setting. They participated in hands-on team building activities, played cooperative tic-tac-toe to test their knowledge of cooperatives, and watched a puppet show telling the history of Farmers Union. “The positive impact cooperatives have had in rural South Dakota is dramatic,” said Haakon County Education Director Sandee Gittings. “Young people need to know what cooperation can do in business and in their own personal lives. The kids who attended camp have a greater understanding of teamwork and will take the skills
they learned and apply them to their lives.” Campers participated in 4-H activities along with other interactive activities, games, and singing. Each child also created their own garden stones as a craft and each child also received a free T-shirt. Participants at this year’s Haakon County Farmers Union camp were: Max, Molly, Ana and Kate Mckeehan, Jessica, Samantha, and Colby Enders from Kadoka, SD; Abby Fortune from Belvidere; Kelton Quinn from Milesville; Jasmine Hiatt, Romanee Andru, Taylor and Brice Hanson all from Philip. The Camp was led by South Dakota Farmers Union Summer Staff Amelia Thompson and Hannah Lily and assisting were Marsha Sumpter, Ashton Reedy, Sandee Gittings, Tyana, Myrna, and Sandra Gottsleben. For more information on South Dakota Farmers Union and how you and your children can get involved in the organization’s youth activities, visit the education page at www.sdfu.org or call Bonnie Geyer, State Education Director at 605-352-6761 ext. 125.

Students from across South Dakota spread out on pastures southwest of Philip on June 19 and 20 to compete in Rangeland Days. The students rotated amongst plots identifying plants and completing site evaluations.
Producers have been putting up their first and second cutting alfalfa and starting to cut their grass hay. Although some hay will remain with the operation, there are several growers who plan to market their hay, says Tracey Renelt, Extension Dairy Field Specialist. If you're one of the producers who are deliberating selling your alfalfa or grass hay, Renelt says there are a few things to consider before marketing your product to optimize the price you receive. "First, have you taken an analysis of forage to determine the quality? Sampling should be done as close to the time of utilization of the feedstuff or to the time sale," Renelt said. "This can be done by coring the bales via a hay probe." Hay probes should be placed on the curved side at a 90 degree angle for large round bales, coring towards the center or when coring square bales it should be placed on the butt end of the bales. Care needs to be taken as to not get net wrap or twine included in the core

sample. Growers need to core several random bales (20 minimum cores total) in a lot of hay and combine the sample and place the cores into gallon size plastic bag or other container and seal. A total of onehalf pound of dry hay from the 20 cores is adequate. "Samples should represent a cutting of hay from a particular field that has been put up under similar conditions, which is also referred to as a hay lot," Renelt said. She reminds growers to label their sample bag adequately with their contact information, including phone number and type of sample you are sending (alfalfa, grass hay, mixed hay, etc) and the type of analysis desired. Growers have several choices when it comes to selecting a lab which can perform an analysis on the sample to determine the feed quality. For lab contact information contact the local SDSU Regional Extension Center or the National Forage Testing Association website http://www.foragetesting.org/ which provides a list of certified laboratories that perform hay analysis tests. Renelt explains that growers can either perform a wet chemistry analysis or a NIRS (Near Infrared Reflectance Spectroscopy) analysis, which is most commonly done and typically is the quickest and cheapest method. Thru the NIRS analysis growers will obtain results for RFV (relative feed value), RFQ (relative feed quality), percent dry matter, crude protein, ADF(acid detergent fiber, NDF (neutral detergent fiber) digestible NDF, lignin, crude fat, ash, Calcium, Phosphorus, Magnesium, Potassium, Total Digestible Nutrients, Net Energy for gain, lactation & maintenance, NDF digestibility, and NFC (non-fiber carbohydrate). "So why is this important? As we know, alfalfa and grass quality will vary greatly based on maturity at the time of harvest, conditions it was put up under, and storage methods. Thus, it has given us a way to value the product based
upon its quality at the time of utilization," Renelt said. When determining a fair price, Renelt says growers should consider the method they used to put the hay up. "Was the hay put up as a large round bale or small or large square bale or as balage? Was it net wrapped, twine wrapped, or plastic wrapped? Is it plastic twine or sisal twine? Has it sat out and been rained on since harvest or has it been stored in the shed? All these things should be considered when pricing your commodity," she said. The last item growers should consider is the hay's appearance. "Growers need to visually inspect the hay to see if there is noxious weed seeds, mold or if there is foreign material present in the hay," Renelt said. "All of which can change the price received and will not show up on an NIRS analysis. If state or locally noxious weed seeds are present it will prevent you from transporting or selling the product according to state law."

Managing for Reproductive Success:
Fertility Level of Herd IV 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; •Fertility level of the herd. The first article focused on detecting standing estrus, inseminator efficiency was the focus of the second article and fertility level of semen was the topic discussed in the third article of this four-part series on managing for reproductive success released by SDSU Extension. This is the fourth and last article in the series. It will discuss fertility level of the herd. Fertility level of the herd Fertility of the herd may be the most difficult factor to evaluate, Perry says. "Accurate detection of estrus, inseminator efficiency and fertility of the semen (Parts l, ll, and lll) of this discussion are all vital to the success of any breeding program. However, even when these three elements are well managed, if the cow herd fertility level is compromised, pregnancy rates may not meet cattlemen's expectations," Perry said. When Perry discusses herd fertility he is referring to a herd's cycling/puberty status, compliance with protocols, embryonic mortality, body condition score (nutrition level) and disease control. Cycling Perry says non-cycling cows at breeding time may result from a number of factors including dystocia, calving late, inadequate nutrition levels (pre and post calving), cow age or excessive milk production in relationship to the feed resources available or severe weather conditions. In addition, heifers not developed properly and failing to reach 55 percent to 65 percent of their mature weight by breeding time may not cycle or conceive if they do. Synchronization protocols that utilize a progestin can help cows/heifers that have not initiated normal estrous cycles if they are almost ready to begin having normal estrous cycles. "These protocols are the result of time-consuming research and are a valuable tool when incorporated accurately into breeding programs in conjunction with good herd management," Perry said. "However, regimented use of them is essential for satisfactory results." When implementing protocols, Perry says advanced planning is important. "Timing of prebreeding vaccinations needs to be well in advance of insemination," he said. "Cattle producers need to plan when injections or feeding need to occur; plan access to facilities and line-up additional labor. When insemination will occur must be planned well in advance of protocol use." Embryonic mortality Fertilization rates are usually between 89 percent and 100 percent when semen is present at the time of ovulation. However, Perry says early embryonic mortality causes that percentage to drop to about 60 percent to 70 percent. "Several management decisions can impact the percent of embryos lost to early embryonic mortality," Perry said. One factor he says is the timing of transporting cows and heifers after insemination. "Research conducted at the USDA research center in Miles City, Mont., reported transporting cows/heifers from day 5 and 42 after insemination is a very sensitive time for the embryo and can be a major factor in embryo mortality," he said. Another factor is changes in nutritional status. "This can also have a tremendous influence on embryonic survival," Perry said. He points to research conducted at Oklahoma State University showed that sever changes in intake of energy and protein can result in heifer stopping normal estrous cycles. "Furthermore, work done at South Dakota State University showed that moving heifers, who developed all winter in a feedlot, to pasture immediately after AI can increase early embryonic losses," Perry said. Body condition score & disease Body condition score (BCS) and disease are two additional causes of marginal fertility rates says Perry. "Research recommendations suggest that cows be in a minimum BCS of 5 and heifers 6 at calving time in order for them to cycle and re-breed on an annual basis," he said. "This allows sufficient body reserves for lactation and to initiate normal estrous cycles after calving." However, Perry notes, if adequate nutrition is not available after calving, body condition can be lost and may delay the return to normal estrous cycles. Overall health of the herd can impact herd fertility says Perry. "Cattle producers need to implement a proper pre-breeding vaccination program along with a well-managed, internal and external parasite application program. This will help limit disease occurrences in the herd and promote herd fertility," Perry said. He adds that special care should be taken with virgin heifers. "Several studies have reported negative impacts on pregnancy success by vaccinating heifers that have never been vaccinated before with a modified live vaccine (MLV) for BVD or IBR around time of breeding," he said. "Therefore, general recommendations for vaccination of replacement heifers include; before and at weaning, with both heifers and cows receiving a booster vaccine at least 30 days before breeding. If it is absolutely necessary to give a modified live vaccine less than 30 days prior to breeding, the vaccine should be administered as soon as possible and only to animals that were vaccinated both before and at weaning. Animals that have not previously been vaccinated (naïve animals) should not be vaccinated near the time of breeding." The "Equation of Reproduction," which has been discussed in this four-part series, highlights management practices that are essential to any successful beef breeding program. When we are "Managing for Reproductive Success," it involves cattle producers making management decisions throughout the entire year - not just prior to the breeding season. By doing this, producers can expect to generate successful reproductive results. "As we increase the reproductive efficiency within a herd, we can increase our management decisions on genetic improvement and other factors to increase the profitability of your herd," Perry said. For more information related to inseminator efficiency, contact Jim Krantz, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist at jim.Krantz@sdstate.edu or 605-995-7381 or Dr. George Perry, SDSU Extension Beef Reproductive Management Specialist at george.perry@sdstate.edu or 605-688-5456.

Winner Regional Extension Center
Bob Fanning, Plant Pathology Field Specialist • 605-842-1267 SDSU Extension Re-organization As we progress into the first summer of the new SDSU Extension system, the Regional Extension Centers are becoming busier with telephone, e-mail and walk-in traffic. As the SDSU Extension Reorganization was unveiled in April, 2012, some of the criteria for the location of the Regional Extension Centers included geography of the state, and location of major trade centers. While there can be no perfect situation, the wisdom of locating the Regional Centers in communities identified as trade centers is becoming increasingly apparent. There are certainly people who don’t make frequent trips to the communities where the Extension Centers were chosen to be located, but at least in Winner, a number of people have stopped in the center while they were in town for another reason. This has provided them an opportunity to bring in crop samples, weeds or insects to identify, or simply to request information in person. If they weren’t planning a trip to Winner, or needed assistance on shorter notice, technology has served well, either by calling on the telephone, sending an e-mail, and sometimes including one or more digital photographs. On one recent occasion, I was in northern South Dakota, participating in a series of winter wheat tours and received a digital photograph on my cell phone of some wheat plants. I was able to identify the wheat disease affecting the plants, call the client within a short time and provided him with the information he needed. E-mail is also used extensively to receive requests for assistance, and to provide information, often involving digital photographs and the exchange of electronic documents. Not everyone in South Dakota is blessed with reliable cell phone service and high-speed Internet access, or even Internet access at all. We at SDSU Extension are always available via telephone, and may need to return phone calls, but strive to do so in a timely manner. We are also more than willing to send factsheets and/or letters for specific information by mail if needed. Not everyone in South Dakota is probably pleased with the re-organization of the Extension Service, particularly if they are located a long distance from one of the regional centers. The Extension Field Specialists do feel that they are able to concentrate more closely on their specialty area and better serve the people who come to them for information. If you would like information in the specialty areas provided at the Winner Regional Extension Center (specifically Plant Pathology, Human Nutrition, and soon, Beef Cow-Calf), stop in at 325 S Monroe St., or call 842-1267. For other specialty areas, if you have Internet access, visit iGrow: http://igrow.org/ or the SDSU Extension website: http://www.sdstate.edu/sdces/ for a complete listing of Regional Extension Centers, the Field Specialists, their areas of expertise, addresses, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses. If you don’t have Internet access, you can also contact most County Extension Offices and get a list of the Regional Extension Centers, the Fields Specialists located at each one and their contact information.

New training video released by SDSU Extension helps producers sample hay
SDSU Extension recently releases a new training video to help producers correctly sample hay to get a clear picture of its nutritional value. The video, "Forage Sampling Method," is useful for livestock producers who feed hay for those who market the forage. "Many producers would say quality hay is green in color, free of mold and weeds, has a high portion of leaves and it was put up without rain on it. Although these are all good indicators of high quality hay, they don't tell producers anything about the nutritional content of the forage," said Julie Walker, SDSU Extension Beef Specialist. "Sampling hay is essential to understanding its true quality." The video is available on iGrow's YouTube Channel http://www.youtube.com/sdsuigrow. It is hosted by Warren Rausche, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist and Tracey Renelt, SDSU Extension Dairy Field Specialist.
