With donations from BankWest,
Kadoka Oil, LLC, People’s Market,
Discount Fuel, and an anonymous
donor, the Jackson County Sports
complex will receive a new score-
board and message board.
The message board is portable
and can be used to announce local
evnets. The message board will be
used at the sports complex during
the track season and the rest of the
year it will be in front of the school.
KAHS Superintendent Jamie
Hermann expressed gratitude to
the donors on behalf of the school
district.
“It’s our honor to help and one
way we can give back to the com-
munity,” said Gene Christensen
Kadoka Branch President of
BankWest.
Workdays have been scheduled
at the sports complex for March 16,
17, 22, and 23 for cleanup and re-
moving the old scoreboard. Each
day will start at 10 a.m.
The South Dakota Child Abduc-
tion Response Team (CART) partic-
ipated in a training exercise on
March 7, 2013, at Kadoka Area
High School, to test and strengthen
the state’s capabilities. This exer-
cise focused on the processing of
volunteers for searches in missing
children cases.
In the case of a missing child,
volunteers will arrive to help and
this exercise was used to organize
those spontaneous volunteers in-
cluding verifying their identities
and best opportunity to utilize
their unique abilities.
KAHS Senior presented them-
selves as potenial volunteers and
went through the process of regis-
tering as a volunteer.
“Our goal is to assemble a group
of volunteers as quickly and effi-
cently as possible if there was a
missing child,” said Dan Satterlee,
Assistant Director of DCI. “And to
assist local agencies during the
search where there is limited law
enforcement available.”
South Dakota CART is com-
prised of agencies from state, local
and federal agencies whose goal is
to be prepared to quickly respond
when a child is abducted or missing
under suspicious circumstances.
South Dakota CART partners
include the following: Attorney
General’s Office, Division of Crimi-
nal Investigation, FBI, Depart-
ment of Public Safety, Hughes and
Stanley County Emergency Man-
agement, Lawrence County Sher-
iff ’s Office, Rapid City Police
Department, Pennington County
Sheriff ’s Office, Minnehaha County
Sheriff ’s Office and Sioux Falls Po-
lice Department. Jackson County
Sheriff Ray Clements, Jr., Jackson
County Deputy Sheriff Chris
Kendrick and City of Kadoka Chief
of Police Woody Davis also assisted
in the exercise.
“Conducting this type of exercise
prepares the CART team in the
event of an actual emergency of a
missing child,” Satterlee com-
mented. “One never knows when
the team will be dispatched but
preparing prior to the emergency is
essential.”
South Dakota CART achieved
certification in 2009 and was the
5th team to nationally gain this im-
portant status. There are now cur-
rently 18 teams certified
nationwide.
The certification process in-
cluded a mock child abduction ex-
ercise and review of policy and
procedures which was held in
Pierre.

The Kadoka City Council held
their regular monthly meeting on
Monday, March 11 with all mem-
bers present.
Minutes from the February 11
meeting, bills and financial state-
ment were approved as presented.
A group of citizens addressed the
council regarding access of the au-
ditorium, stating that people in the
community would like to utilize it
more hours.
Discussion was held on in-
stalling a card system on the doors
that is similar to what motels use.
Cards may be issued to individu-
als/families to gain access to the
auditorium. The cards can be pro-
gramed to allow access to the build-
ing for certain hours and may be
disabled if there is an event being
hosted in the auditorium.
Cost for a card system and the
computer software would be ap-
proximately $2,500.
Currently keys are issued for ac-
cess and locating some one with a
key is not alway easily done.
Liability issues, monitoring the
building with cameras, and desig-
nating time periods for different
ages of students was also dis-
cussed.
Limited auditorium use during
the summer months was also dis-
cussed. Council member Ryan
Willert stated that he had visited
with Billie Jo Eisenbraun and the
finished that is applied to the floor
is an oil based product and requires
five to six weeks to cure. A water
based product that does not take as
long to cure has been looked into.
Bids were opened for Sixth Av-
enue projects. The project consists
of paving the section of Sixth Av-
enue from Maple Street south to
Chestnut Street, along the west
side of the nursing home.
The milling project was awarded
to Midstates Reclamation.
The asphalt and paving bid was
awarded to Hills Material.
Additional asphalt will be used
to patch other streets.
On behalf of Jackson Kadoka
Economic Development Corp.,
Rusty Olney addressed the council.
Olney stated that the corpora-
tion has been working hard to
maintain business in Kadoka, as
well as welcoming new business
and promoting Kadoka.
Olney said the corporation is
proposing that the City of Kadoka
and Jackson County contribute
$5,000 each to provide an operating
of budget. Unfortunately, the
county does not have funds in their
current budget for 2013 but re-
quested the corporation to make
another request to be considered in
the budget process for 2014.
Following discussion, motion
carried to contribute $5,000.
Bob Fugate addressed the coun-
cil in regards to the sound system
in the auditorium. He stated that a
16 channel sound board, a gator
case, and an audio microphone is
needed.
Midstates Audio installed the
current system and the price
quotes received from them were
very high.
A price quote received from mus-
cianfriends.com was for $900.
Lonny Johnston stated he has pur-
chased items from them and satis-
fied with their products.
Johnston and Dale Christensen
volunteer to set up the channel
board, which would eliminate the
labor costs.
Scaffolding to repair the speak-
ers will need to be rented from Joe
Handrahan in the amount of $450.
Motion carried to share the cost
of the equipment and scaffolding
rent with the school.
After the bids for the fire alarm
system were received and they
were higher than expected, award-
ing the bid was tabled from last
month.
Mayor Weller stated that he had
visited with the state inspector and
that it was not mandatory to install
the system.
After much discussion, the coun-
cil voted to reject all bids received
on the fire alarm system.
The Board of Equalization for
the City of Kadoka will meet on
March 18 and the next regular
meeting will be April 8.

Read Philippians 1:12-18
During his confinement in a Roman jail, the apostle
Paul wrote one of his most upbeat and encouraging let-
ters. In this epistle to the church at Philippi, he used
his less-than-ideal circumstances as an opportunity to
model the right way to handle conflict and criticism.
It is clear from today’s passage and other scriptures that Paul had to deal with significant conflict,
even among members of the church in Rome. Some people were upset that he preached to the Gentiles
rather than exclusively to Jews. They also didn’t like that he taught salvation by grace and not law. Paul’s
words reveal that some people were teaching the message with a very different motivation from his own.
Notice that he responded with a positive attitude. The tenor of his letter is one of encouragement and
resolve. He did not lash out at his critics. Nor did he defend himself personally. He defended his message,
the true gospel, but he did so in love and without harshness.
Paul stressed the bright side. He rejoiced because, whether the motive was sincerity or envy, Jesus
Christ was being proclaimed, and the true gospel message was spreading. He was so concerned for the
souls of others that he responded out of selflessness rather than selfishness.
Ask God to help you stay the course the way Paul did—even when your situation may involve contro-
versy and criticism. The prison guards learned about the gospel from the jailed apostle. Your words and
behavior can likewise reflect Christ to unbelievers you encounter.

Democratic Caucus from the first
day of Session right down to the
last important days when funding
decisions were made. Public educa-
tion is the most important invest-
ment we can make for the citizens
of South Dakota. A few of the spe-
cific bills which impact education
funding include SB 194 which will
extend the sunset date for use of
capital outlay funds for other al-
lowable expenses. Currently 102 of
our 151 school districts use this
type of flexibility.
HB1137 has passed and pro-
vides $5.8 million dollars to schools
for the current fiscal year. This
equates to about $45 per student.
These funds will be distributed to
schools before June 30, 2013. The
bill also provides $200,000 for post-
secondary career and technical ed-
ucation programs . All the funding
in this bill is for the current fiscal
year. While the $5.8 still falls short
of where we need funding to be, it
is a step in the right direction.
There were many attempts to
improve the funding formula, right
down to the last Amendment of-
fered by Democrats on the budget.
It was late on Friday night of the
last day when the General Funding
Bill passed. Regrettably, only the
original 3.0% requested in the Gov-
ernor’s budget was approved. This
3.0% increase raises the funding
formula from $4,491 to $4,625 for
an increase of $134 per student.
(Inflation was actually 3.2% but
the law says 3% or the rate of infla-
tion, whichever is less). To put the
amount in perspective, the 2008-09
per student allocation was $4,642
so the FY14 amount is $17 less per
student than five years ago! We can
and must do better for our stu-
dents!
Knowing that agriculture is our
state’s #1 industry with $20.9 bil-
lion dollars in annual economic im-
pact, it is no surprise that a
number of agriculture issues domi-
nated the 2013 Legislative Session.
Senate Bill 195 had tremendous bi-
partisan support and will provide
economic development by adjusting
the taxes paid by wind generating
facilities. This is an interesting
concept where we can reduce the
upfront contractors excise and
sales taxes in the form of a rebate
for new wind generation. Along
with this rebate, the bill will reduce
the tax break on gross receipts
taxes and accelerate the payment
of those taxes to county, school dis-
trict, and the state.
We passed House Bill 1066 to
permanently expand the gross re-
ceipts tax for tourism. The Tourism
Tax is a 1.5 cent sales tax on pur-
chases made at visitor intensive
businesses that generate most of
their money in June, July, August,
and September. Visitor intensive
businesses collect the tourism tax
during these four summer months.
Other industries such as lodging
establishments, campgrounds,
motor vehicle rentals, visitor at-
tractions, recreational equipment
rentals, recreational services, and
spectator events collect and pay on
the gross receipts the entire year.
The Governor has recommended
a Task Force to continue to study
Medicaid Expansion. While we had
hoped we could follow the example
of so many other states and settle
this issue during the Session, we
continue to hope that this worthy
program will be expanded. We
would be bringing in close to $200
million federal dollars to SD to care
for those in need, make our citizens
healthier, and keep them out of
more expensive emergency care.
It has been an honor to serve
District 27 in the 2013 Session.
I invite you to contact me with
your questions and concerns. I may
be reached at 605-685-4241 or
Sen.Bradford@state.sd.us.
The 2013 Legislative Session
has recessed until March 25 when
legislators will come together to
consider any legislation which may
be vetoed by the Governor. This
final week of regular Session was
consumed with concurrence or con-
ference committees on certain
pieces of legislation when the
House and Senate needed to iron
out differences between the two
bodies. Appropriators had a busy
week as final revenue projections
were adopted and the final deter-
minations of expenditures were de-
termined. Over 70 different
amendments were made to the
General Funding Bill and each had
to get an “Aye” or “Nay” from Ap-
propriators before the final budget
could be adopted.
The first part of the Session was
dominated by discussions of the
Criminal Justice Initiative. The
law has already been signed and
we hope that this will unfold as
predicted to work towards rehabil-
itation rather than incarceration. I
was involved in this legislation
from start to finish as I served on
the Task Force which studied the
issue last summer. It’s a step in the
right direction and I’m proud that
I was a part of its adoption.
What could be described as the
People’s Economic Development
Bill took the form of Senate Bill
235 and passed by wide margins in
both the House and Senate. When
the people spoke in last Novem-
ber’s election and defeated 1230, a
determined group of legislative
leaders collaborated to design a
new approach to economic develop-
ment which could benefit commu-
nities of all sizes. “Building SD” is
a re-engineered economic develop-
ment tool, and creates a new ap-
proach compared to the REDI and
Future Funds which were created
in 1987.
Legislators created SB235 with
the realization that each commu-
nity faces obstacles such as afford-
able housing and road
improvements which are vital in
support of economic growth.
Schools too often need support
when development means adding
ESL students (English as a Second
Language).
SB235 now incorporates that
goal as well as job-related pro-
grams in local schools. There will
still be tax breaks to help in-state
companies to grow or out-of-state
companies to relocate. In addition,
“Building SD” reminds us that
building business means building
communities where business can
prosper.
One of the important changes in
this approach to economic develop-
ment is the guarantee that no
money will go into the program if
the regular General Fund expendi-
tures are not funded first. This
means that the per student alloca-
tion to schools, Medicaid providers,
and state employees must be pro-
vided before any revenue would
shift from the General Fund to at-
tracting new companies.
Providing adequate funding for
education was a primary goal of the
From Senator Jim Bradford
It is with great sorrow that our
Fr. Reuben Valades passed away on
Tuesday, March 5, 2013, at the VA-
BHHCS in Ft. Meade, S.D.
Fr. Reuben was born on Septem-
ber 26, 1929, to Catarino and An-
drea (Uvalle) Valades in Edgemont.
Fr. Reuben graduated salutato-
rian in his class of 1947. He then
worked in Wade’s Grocery Store
and in the Southern Hills Bank
from 1949 to 1952. He served his
country in the Korean War from
1952 to 1954.
When he returned from the
Army, he attended Chadron State
College from 1955 to 1957. He then
graduated from Black Hill State
University with a bachelor of sci-
ence in education degree in 1959.
He taught conversational Spanish
for one year in Lead and taught
freshman and sophomore English
at Provo High School in Igloo for
three years.
In 1963, Fr. Reuben attended St.
Mary’s College in St. Mary, Ky.,
where he did his undergraduate
studies for the priesthood. From
1966 to 1970, he attended Immac-
ulate Conception Seminary in Con-
ception, Mo.
Fr. Reuben was ordained June 8,
1970, by the late Bishop Harold J.
Dimmerling. His first assignment
was as an associate pastor at the
Cathedral of Our Lady of Perpetual
Help in Rapid City.
In 1973 to 1981, he was assigned
to Sacred Heart Church in Philip,
St. Mary’s Church in Milesville and
St. William in Midland.

Philip Ministerial Association.
From 1981 to 1986, he was as-
signed to Christ the King Church
in Presho. In July, 1986, he was as-
signed to St. Joseph’s Church in
Gregory and in 1990, Sacred Heart
Church in Burke was added to his
mission. In 1992, he was assigned
to New Underwood and Lakeside.
He retired from that parish in
1999.
Fr. Reuben will also be remem-
bered by his love for music, espe-
cially the guitar which he mastered
and the song he wrote titled,
“Walking Down Those Forty Days
of Lent.”
In addition to his many friends
that he served as their parish
priest, he leaves one brother, Sal-
vador (Chuck), Sturgis; one sister,
Inez Martinez, Chadron, Neb.; and
numerous nephews and nieces and
their families.
His father and mother, a sister
Alice Gnojek and three brothers,
Catarino, Jr., Vincent F. and
Gabriel preceded him in this jour-
ney.
The family also remembers Sis-
ter Agnes Holzapfel, a longtime
companion, and also his loyal dog,
Benji, who also preceded him in
death.

This link will let you check on
the final disposition of all legisla-
tion: http://legis.state.sd.us/
The legislature spent all day
dealing with amendments to SB
90, which is the General Appropri-
ations bill. SB 90 revises the Gen-
eral Appropriations Act for fiscal
year 2013, provides funding for the
increased costs associated with the
employee health insurance and in-
ternal service bureaus, and de-
clares an emergency. After a long
discussion, the House passed SB 90
and sent it on to the Senate. I and
thirteen other legislators did not
vote for the G bill. Among a few of
the problems was the increase in
150 new state employee's for vari-
ous agency's. I strongly oppose any
further expansion of government in
a time of such uncertanity. Educa-
tion still is $17.00 per student allo-
cation below where it was when the
cuts were made. My suggestions on
extra funding being sent back to
the counties for education and in-
frastucture fell on deft ears. The
one thing I can assure everyone,
Sioux Falls and Rapid City will be
in a great position for using "The
Build South Dakota Fund" to fur-
ther economic developement. The
Senate also had long discussions
before they passed the G bill at
midnight. Needless to say, most of
us spent what was left of the night
in Pierre and drove home on Satur-
day.
These are some of the bills the
legislature sent to the governor
this week:
HB 1050 to make an appropria-
tion for costs related to the sup-
pression of mountain pine beetles,
to establish a cost share program
with the counties in the state, and
to declare an emergency.
HB 1122 revises requirements
relating to health insurance plans
for county officers and employees.
HB 1137 impacts education in
South Dakota, makes an appropri-
ation, and declares an emergency.
HB 1164 establishes a classroom
innovation grant program and
makes an appropriation.
HB 1165 revises provisions con-
cerning the agricultural land task
force.
HB 1168 to allow predator con-
trol boards to increase levies to pay
for predator control if approved by
a majority of the livestock produc-
ers within the district.
HB 1184 appropriates 4 million
dollars to the Department of Game,
Fish and Parks to fund improve-
ments to the state park system.
HB 1126 revises the massage
therapy licensing requirements.
HB 1144 permits the euthaniza-
tion of wildlife seriously injured in
motor vehicle accidents.
HB 1098 requires the Legisla-
ture to approve bonds for lease pur-
chase agreements with the four
postsecondary technical institutes,

The Belvidere Store reopened
this week under the new ownership
of John and Jo Rodgers. A load of
gas was delivered on Wednesday,
and John said they won’t be offer-
ing premium gas but will instead
have diesel fuel available at all the
pumps. Ronda Dennis will be the
manager. On Sunday, Jory Rodgers
was running the cash register, and
his dad, John, was playing cribbage
nearby with Casey Jensen. The
Belvidere Store has historically
been a hotbed of cribbage activity,
and that has apparently not
changed. Although they have done
quite a bit of renovation, the work
continues.
Jory said he was tired on Sun-
day since he’d spent all day Satur-
day at the regional AAU wrestling
meet in Rapid City. He placed sec-
ond in that event which entitles
him to participate in the state tour-
nament in Brookings in two weeks.
High-school wrestling is over for
the season, but AAU wrestling is
just finishing up. Jory will be in
track after that where he hopes to
participate in discus and shot put.
Mary Johnston recently re-
turned from a trip that took her to
visit sisters in Minnesota and Ore-
gon. Her son, Larry, took her to
Pipestone, MN, on Feb. 19 where
her sister, Lela, picked her up and
took her to her home at Milaca.
Various relatives and friends were
visited in Milaca. On the 26th,
Mary and Lela flew to Oregon
where they were met by a nephew
and taken to their sister, Sharon’s,
in Salem. Sharon isn’t in very good
health and wasn’t able to meet the
gals herself. The stay there lasted
until Saturday when a flight was
caught to Minneapolis where they
were met by Lela’s daughter. Mary
returned home on the 2nd. Lela
took her to Pipestone again where
her son, Lonny, picked her up and
brought her the rest of the way
home. She might have come home
a bit sooner except for being de-
layed by seven inches of snow on
top of snow banks that were al-
ready there. Mary had a good trip
and enjoyed seeing her sisters but
is also glad to be home.
Betty Kusick was visited by Joe
Livermont on Thursday morning.
They fiddled with the computer Joe
gave Betty a while ago that Betty
uses for playing games. That after-
noon, Betty went to Kadoka to visit
Bunny Green who recently moved
to the nursing home from Ft. Pierre
where she had been staying with
her granddaughter. Bunny is in
room 3 and is a roommate to Micki
Word. When Betty left, Bunny told
her to get back up there before long
since they weren’t done visiting
and hadn’t completely caught up
just yet. Bunny is very pleased to
be back in the area and with the
care she is getting at the nursing
home. Rev. McCubbin said that,
when he visited her, she praised
the nursing home so pointedly that
she almost convinced him he
should check himself in.
Greg and Martin Badure cele-
brated birthdays a week ago. This
Friday was Dana’s. She celebrated
with a trip to visit Paula Vogelsang
over past Wanblee. Paula has been
busy helping with calving, but she
had time to fix dinner for Dana and
kids and also make a birthday
cake. The kids enjoyed gathering
eggs in the chicken house and
found forty or more eggs.
Kenny and Roxie Fox were vis-
ited by Mark Eickman of Salem
this week. Mark is a lineman, and
enjoys doing a bit of coyote hunting
from time to time. A while ago, he
built a cabin at Fox’s that he made
out of the large wooden reels that
electrical wire comes on. It has
bunk beds and is quite nice. It nat-
urally has electric heat.
Eve Fortune said they are
mostly staying close to home and
calving. She is excited about the
possibility of working at the
Kadoka library on Saturdays to
help out librarian, Debra Moor.
Bud and Valene Perault had
supper on Sunday at Mike and
Marlene Perault’s. Marlene was
planning to give Bud a haircut that
evening since she is in the habit of
giving her menfolk haircuts when
they need them. That would in-
clude Mike and Bert and used to
include her dad, Leonard Carlson.
Marlene said her mom, Lillian
Carlson, is doing very well after
getting her heart beating correctly
again. That was accomplished in
Sioux Falls at the Heart Hospital
and was done there because Mar-
lene’s daughter, Coleen, works
there. Lillian recuperated at home
all week and was thinking of going
back to her child-care work on
Monday since she has been doing
that practically all her life. She
said she was getting bored being at
home alone and missed the kids.
Lillian was taken to Sioux Falls by
her daughter, Lesa, and picked up
there by Marlene.
Bonenbergers are about done
with calving. Brett said they only
have a handful left. That should
give them the freedom to celebrate
MaKaylan’s birthday next weekend
with a trip to Rapid City.
Jodie O’Bryan went to Rapid
City on Sunday to get her grand-
son, JD, started on celebrating his
seventh birthday which was actu-
ally on Monday. Jodie and JD
palled around having lunch, shop-
ping at Runnings, and playing
games. They later had banana
splits at the truck stop where they
were joined by JD’s mom, Faye,
and his other two siblings. Scot
wasn’t able to go along to Rapid
City since calving is in full swing at
their place. He, however, has been
able to get in a lot of visiting with
several guys that have come to
have their horses shod. Jodie says
when Tater and Todd Ward came
from Eagle Butte, Scot would put
on one shoe and then he and Tater
would exchange stories of their
saddle-bronc riding days. Jodie has
also coached a Ward daughter in
barrel racing who won a world
championship in that event at Las
Vegas. Another rodeo friend came
from Nebraska to have Scot shoe
some of his horses. Jodie said she
is extremely happy to be back to
riding horses. She has been recov-
ering from broken ribs and other
injuries she suffered recently in a
barrel-racing fall and hasn’t been
able to ride for a while. She did a
lot of beading during that time and
is still doing quite a bit of it since
she has orders to fill. Jodie was
also happy to talk to her son,
Scotty, on the phone on Sunday and
find he has received a promotion at
work. He works for a longhorn jour-
nal there in Texas and is moving up
in the organization.
Rick and Ronda Dennis had
their grandchildren, Carter and
Taya Iverson, come and stay for a
few days. Carter and Taya were en-
joying their Spring break from
school.
Last Saturday was a bad day for
cooking. Three of us had problems
that day for no good reason except
that it was obviously a poor day for
cooking.
Take Ruth, for example. She
had recently acquired some fluted
metal forms for making edible
shells out of tortillas. You fre-
quently see these shells in Mexi-
can restaurants and may get your
salad served in one. Anyway, Ruth
carefully followed the instructions
as to oven temperature and baking
time only to come up with burnt
shells. She was not pleased but
tried again. This time she kept a
close eye on things and got an ac-
ceptable product, but the first at-
tempt was a no-go.
Marie also encountered prob-
lems. She was trying to make a
cake that starts with a mix from a
box but is fancied up with the ad-
dition of coconut and other goodies.
Well, Marie is an excellent cook.
Ask anyone, and they will say it is
so. She, however, suspected early
on that things were not as they
should be. She has made this
dessert many times, and the batter
seemed somewhat stringy and not
quite right. Nevertheless, she
threw the mixture into a pan and
baked it, but it came out very flat.
It didn’t rise like it was supposed
to so, with disgust, it got itself
thrown in the garbage for misbe-
havior. I might have just frosted it
and relabeled it as bars instead of
as a cake, but Marie was frus-
trated with the whole business and
decided to give it up for the time
being. She could always try again
another day.
I, too, did not have much luck in
the kitchen. I was trying to decide
what to make for the coffee time
after church the next day and
couldn’t make up my mind. Noth-
ing sounded good. Wife Corinne
saw me shuffling through recipes
and looking perplexed so she men-
tioned that she’d seen some maple
recipes in her “Good Old Days”
magazine. She produced that mag-
azine, and the one for maple
muffins looked interesting. I de-
cided to give it a try, especially
since I happened to have some
maple syrup on hand.
This was not a complicated
recipe, and I followed it explicitly
with careful measurement of in-
gredients and procedure. After
everything was in the mix and
stirred up, I realized I had a prob-
lem. The batter was not nearly liq-
uid enough to spoon into muffin
cups. I would have had to roll it
into balls or something to get it
into the paper liners. Well, in the
past when making muffins out of a
non-calorie sweetener called
Splenda, I’ve had to add extra milk
since Splenda makes dough quite
sticky. That had worked before so
why not try it again? I had to use
a lot of milk to get the batter right,
but finally it was ready to bake.
The streusel topping was also a
frustration since what the recipe
called for made way too much of it.
There wasn’t room in the top of the
cups for it all. No matter. Use what
you need and stuff the rest in the
refrigerator for possible later use
or for throwing out if no good use
ever presented itself.
I was pleased a bit later to see
that the muffins were getting nice
and high in the oven and looking
quite good. Maybe I’d pulled it off.
Well, although those muffins were
pretty and probably nutritious and
all, they had almost no noticeable
flavor. They were okay with lash-
ings of butter, but by themselves
they were dull. Corinne and I
could discern no maple flavor
whatsoever. I took them to church
anyway with a certain amount of
disgust, and people ate them. I did-
n’t actually see anyone come back
for seconds, but neither did I see
any in the trash can. I did almost
make Fayola choke when I saw her
eating one and told her that, al-
though the muffins were nice look-
ing, it was a pity they had no taste.
She guffawed but said they weren’t
all that bad, bless her heart.
There are days, apparently, that
just aren’t suited for certain activ-
ities. Ranchers and farmers know,
for instance, that animals are
nervous and hard to deal with if
there is unsettled weather or a
storm moving in. Fishermen know
that certain weather conditions
make it so fish will absolutely not
bite no matter what you tempt
them with. You can’t always tell
ahead of time what jobs or activi-
ties are suitable for certain days,
but you will find out soon enough
when you try doing them. Like I
said, last Saturday was a poor day
for cooking. Come to think of it,
Tuesday wasn’t much good for
doing bookwork either. Figures
wouldn’t add up that afternoon.
So when you find a day simply
isn’t suitable for what you hope to
accomplish, you can do as some
kids did on a TV show son Chance
was watching the other day. One of
the kids said, “Everyone in favor of
doing nothing all day, say ‘Aye’.”
Everyone said, “Aye,” albeit some-
what phlegmatically. Some days, I
suspect, are just best for doing ab-
solutely nothing at all and simply
hoping tomorrow will be better.
Hope you’re having a good day. If
not, there’s always tomorrow.

It’s hard to find a rich hermit.
The Township Annual meeting
was held on Tuesday, March 5.
Norris Township held their
meeting at the Township Hall in
the afternoon so Dan Taft could
keep an appointment in Martin
later that same day. Officers were
re-elected and bills paid and busi-
ness was discussed as usual. Roads
are always discussed and insulat-
ing the hall was the biggest accom-
plishment for the year.
The last one out of town shut off
the lights on Tuesday night as the
whole community set out for the re-
gional basketball game at Wall.
White River played Oelriches to a
standing room only crowd. It was
packed with people standing in the
corners and everywhere but under
the basketball hoops. Congratula-
tions to the White River Tigers as
they are once again headed to the
State “B” Boys’ Basketball Tourna-
ment in Aberdeen. The cheerlead-
ers and team are a wonderful
bunch of kids! If you want to see
team action, they are it. Whoever is
hot at the time gets the ball. We
have been to all the games close
this year and as high as the score
often was; we came home wonder-
ing who was high point man, that
is team play.
Team play is the best teacher of
life itself and how you find your
place in it. Those guys and their
coaches are friends, a team, a fam-
ily and winners. They have worked
extremely hard and seen trials, in-
jury, losses, wins and the pure joy
of doing what they do best for the
sake of others and come up with a
grin on their face. It not only wins
games, but is a thrill to watch.
White River will play Langford
at noon on Thursday in the first
round of tournament play. You can
be sure that those of us here at
home will be cheering in the living
room. We are very proud of all of
you.
Patrick Allard of Rapid City vis-
ited his grandmother, Maxine Al-
lard, on Wednesday and spent the
night. June Ring was also a lunch
guest of Maxine that day.
Norris School News: No school
on Thursday, March 14 so folks in

tled in the AAU Regionals in
Pierre, Jace got fifth and Jade re-
ceived second place. Jason was wel-
comed home by his first new calf of
the season.
The Burmas and Andee Beck-
with were Sunday dinner guests at
the James Letelliers. Julie Letel-
lier started out on Sunday, but
turned back due to the bad roads
from Saturday’s winter storm. We
got snow on Saturday, too but noth-
ing like the foot of snow in Todd
County and down in Nebraska.
The Lenten Services are held at
St. John Lutheran Church each
Wednesday evening at 6:00 p.m.

Samantha Taft of USD and her
friend, Darcy, of Sioux Falls came
to the parental Dan Taft home for
the weekend. The gals started back
on Saturday, but after sliding in
the ditch by Mission decided to
turn back and go on Sunday.
Ed and Carol Ferguson attended
a band concert in Rapid City on
Saturday in which their grand-
daughter Moya Brickman played
the clairnet. Their other grand-
daughter Kaitlyn Ferguson re-
turned home with them to spend a
few days at Norris.
Ed, Carol, Kaitlyn and Jesse
Ferguson were guests at the Pete
Ferguson home on Sunday after-
noon to help Marla celebrate her
birthday.
Monday afternoon, Carol Fergu-
son and Kaitlyn visited Irene Kauf-
man in Valentine, Nebraska.
Pastor Denke of St. John
Lutheran Church at Norris will
have TVs set up in the church base-
ment for your viewing pleasure of
all three classes of the state tour-
naments again this year. Hopefully
only the sound of one will be turned
up. Come and enjoy the games with
friends. Bring your own munchies.
Have a great week!

Status of the
Winter Wheat Crop
There is increasing interest,
and concern, about the winter
wheat crop in much of South
Dakota. As addressed in this col-
umn two weeks ago, it will be dif-
ficult to accurately assess your
winter wheat stand until the
plants break dormancy, or in many
cases, until the seeds germinate
and emerge. Based on historical
soil temperatures, that will likely
occur in mid to late-March. The
statement, “until the seeds germi-
nate and emerge”, is of course due
to much of it being planted into dry
soil, some of which is still dry.
Based on soil temperatures at
several of the automatic weather
stations this winter and limited
field inspections, it appears that
much of the winter wheat that ger-
minated last fall may have escaped
winterkill, at least in south-central
South Dakota.
Two major concerns seem to re-
main. Many areas in South Dakota
are seriously lacking topsoil and/or
subsoil moisture. Seeds that ger-
minated last fall, and those getting
just enough moisture to germinate
this spring, could grow for a short
time once soil temperatures raise
to 39 degrees F or higher, and then
dry out if additional precipitation
is not received within a short time
after.
There are also fields that lack
topsoil as well as subsoil moisture,
and winter wheat planted into dry
soil also has the risk of not com-
pleting the vernalization process.
Neither seedling growth nor tiller-
ing is required for vernalization to
occur. This process can begin in
seeds as soon as they absorb water
and swell, and be complete if a pe-
riod of about 3 weeks passes when
the soil temperature at the
seed/seedling level remains below
about 48 degrees Fahrenheit (F).
The exact length of time and tem-
perature varies by variety, and is
correlated closely to winterhardi-
ness and relative maturity. The
more winterhardy and later ma-
turing a variety is, the longer the
time required and the lower the
soil temperature the seed/seedling
must be exposed to. The vernaliza-
tion process must be completed for
winter cereals to joint and produce
a seedhead.
As the month of March pro-
gresses and we move into April,
the likelihood of a three week pe-
riod with soil temperatures consis-
tently below 48 degrees F
diminishes. Historically, soil tem-
peratures have varied from one
year to another on any given date
at each weather station during
this time period. That makes it dif-
ficult to predict how late in the
spring a winter wheat seed could
absorb moisture, germinate and
complete vernalization. If these
dry fields do not receive enough
moisture by late-March to begin
the germination process, the rare
occasion of winter wheat planted
in the fall and not vernalizing may
occur in 2013.
Significant precipitation in the
near future would relieve a host of
potential problems. Again, before
destroying a winter wheat field,
contact your crop insurance agent.
They can explain your options and
the requirements to maintain in-
surance coverage. Also, avoid
inter-seeding spring wheat into
winter wheat as this would result
in mixed wheat at harvest and re-
sult in marketing problems and al-
most certain price reduction.

Soil Quality Health
Volunteers Needed
A National & South Dakota pri-
ority is soil health and rainfall
management. And to accomplish
this priority, the SD NRCS (Nat-
ural Resources Conservation Serv-
ice) is looking to identify and
recruit producers interested in
helping promote and implement
soil health practices in each
county. This may include, but is
not limited to, producers willing to
host field tours of their operation,
be interviewed by the media,
speaking at public events (work-
shops, training sessions, meet-
ings), and allow photos to be taken
of their operation for publicity etc.
If you are interested in participat-
ing please contact the Kadoka
NRCS office.
Drought Management Tool
According to Pam Geppert,
Dakota Farm Talk host and SD
NRCS State Range Management
Specialist, Stan Boltz, drought re-
covery is not looking very promis-
ing for South Dakota grazing
lands. Stan Boltz went on to say,
that even with normal precipita-
tion and production between now
and peak production around mid-
July of this year, forage production
will still only be around 70 to 75%
of normal production, and will sus-
tain 55% to 65% of normal stock-
ing rates in central and western
SD. This is because of plant recov-
ery from drought takes longer with
limited precipitation.
SD producers can develop a
drought management plan utiliz-
ing the SD Drought Tool, by down-
loading it from the SD NRCS
website: www.sd.nrcs.usda.gov lo-
cated under Technical Resources
tab. The Tool helps producers as-
sess current conditions using the
last 2 years of precipitation to pre-
dict the expected % of normal for-
age production and then stocking
rate. It also walks producers
through a current drought man-
agement plan.
SD Rainfall Simulator
A very unique and eye opening
video demonstration is available
on the SD NRCS website,
www.sd.usda.gov which shows
the benefits of how no-till farming
and prescribed grazing benefit soil
health and improve the water
cycle on cropland and rangeland
across the state. The video in-
cludes discussion on topics such as:
infiltration, aggregate stability,
soil structure, and the relationship
of these properties to runoff, ero-
sion and water quality.

Deadline to Purchase NAP
March 15, 2013
Signup deadline for Noninsured
Crop Disaster Assistance Program,
(NAP), for forage, grazing and
spring seeded crops is March 15.
NAP provides basic catastrophic
insurance protection from natural
disasters for crop types which are
not insurable through standard
Federal Crop Insurance policies.
Producers who have farming inter-
ests in multiple counties will need
to apply for coverage in the FSA
Office(s) where their farm records
are maintained. The NAP applica-
tion fee is $250 per crop type with
a $750 maximum fee per county.
•There are no late filed provi-
sions for NAP, so do not miss this
important March 15, 2013 dead-
line to be eligible for 2013 NAP
coverage and potential disaster
programs. 
Note: March 15th is also the
deadline to purchase Federal Crop
Insurance on Spring Seeded
Crops.
Please call the Haakon/Jackson
County FSA Office at (605) 859-
2186 Ext. 2 for more details about
NAP or any other FSA Program.
