KNH celebrates National Nursing Home week with a cookout
money was designated to be used toward employees and each facility could designate how they wanted to apply the money. However, they needed to send a letter to social services letting them know how the money was used. “This was a one-time bonus to our employees and it was divided by the longevity of the employees working here,” Sanftner said. She said it also included the college summer workers who will be returning this summer. One employee, Cathy Ireland, has worked in the kitchen for over 10 years, was given a plant and a card. The meal was mainly provided for those who volunteer at the nursing home, the residents, staff and board of directors. Members of the board of directors were in charge of grilling burgers, brats and hot dogs and they also furnished the salads. The nursing home purchased the meat, buns and drinks and Ruby Sanftner provided baked beans. The evening ended with a small tallet show -- piano, singing, hoolahoop and staff members singing.

County tooks into purchasing mulcher, packer for road department
~ by Robyn Jones ~ The Jackson County Commissioner held their regular meeting on Monday, May 14. Commissioner Larry Denke was absent. Clements said the new patrol unit for the deputy has arrived and the necessary equipment and devices are being installed. Jackson County Auditor Vicki Wilson presented the financial statement. After discussion, a motion carried to transfer $100,000 into the highway department fund. An updated chart of allowable fees to be charged for records through the Register of Deeds office was presented. These fees are set SD Codified Law. Currently the county receives the 911 surcharge fees collected by the telephone companies. In the future the telephone companies will submit those funds to the state treasurer and then they will distribute the funds to the counties. A hearing was conducted for a special malt beverage permit for the Interior Roping Club for a special event on July 4, 5 and 6. The permit was approved, with Commissioner Ronnie Twiss abstaining. A service agreement was approved with GenPro for semi-annual inspections of the generator in the amount of $265. Discussion was held on the amount of time spent by Register of Deeds Mitzi Mitchell to do a driver’s license exam. Most of the fees collected are submitted to the SD Dept. of Public Safety. Wilson will draft a letter to the SD Dept. of Public Safety requesting a representative from their office attend a meeting to address this concern. The commissioners entered executive session for personnel matters at 1:30 p.m. with Mitch Olney and Kolette Struble. They returned to open session at 1:47 p.m. with no action taken. Tom DeVries inquired as to what the procedure would be to close a section line north of his place. DeVries stated that no utilities are located along the road and a culvert is bad and is partial caved in. Mitch Olney said the road is not on the county road system. The commissioners informed DeVries that since no utilities were located there and since it was not in the road system, he could put up a gate and close the road to traffic. Information was presented from RDO on a road grader that was leased by the City of Sioux Falls with 72 hours on it. The grader would be eligible to be financed for six payments in the amount of $43,875.47. The commissioners also discussed purchasing a road mulcher or a packer. The possibility of trading or selling the Volvo road grader was also considered. After much discussion and review of the budget, the commissioners requested Olney to contact RDO to ask if they would hold the grader until a final decision could be made at the June meeting. Struble said the copier at the county shop is no longer operating. The commissioners approved the purchase of a new one. Olney stated the Kevon Herren would be done working on Friday, May 18. The commissioners went into executive session at 3:40 p.m. for personnel matters and returned to open session at 3:50 p.m. Motions carried to advertise for the highway maintenance position and to continue to advertising for the clerk position for the assessor office.

Memories of a Veteran
My grandpa is a Veteran, I’m very proud of him. He fought bravely in the war, And helped us all to win. He has memories, I know he does. He’s told me one or two. I never get tired of hearing them, I could listen to them through and through. As I said, I am proud Of all that you went through. And if you ever read this, I’m so glad to have a grandpa like you! Signed – Love you! (Father’s Day ‘96) This is a poem written by Lori Petoske for her grandfather, Bob McCormick, in 1996.

New benefits for unemployed veterans
The South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation announces unemployed veterans may qualify for additional education, vocational rehabilitation and employment benefits through the Veterans Opportunity to Work (VOW) to Hire Heroes Act of 2011. This Act provides seamless transition for service members, expands education and training opportunities for veterans, and provides tax credits for employers who hire veterans with service-connected disabilities. “The Veterans Retraining Assistance Program (VRAP) offers 12 months of retraining assistance to unemployed veterans who meet certain criteria,” said State Labor and Regulation Secretary Pam Roberts. “The program will train the veteran for a high demand occupation.” Nationwide, the VRAP is limited to 45,000 participants from July 1, 2012, through September 30, 2012, and to 54,000 participants from October 1, 2012, through March 31, 2014. Veterans who previously completed a VA vocational rehabilitation program and have used the initial 26 weeks of unemployment benefits may qualify for an additional 12 months of VA vocational rehabilitation benefits. “Veterans can apply for the additional benefits now, and the education or training may begin June 1, 2012,” said Secretary Roberts. VA may offer incentive payments to encourage employers to hire and train program participants. An employer may be reimbursed up to one-half the annual salary of the participant for six months or longer. To apply or learn more about retraining assistance, vocational rehabilitation and employer incentives, contact a South Dakota Department of Labor and Regulation local office. An office directory is available at www.sdjobs.org. More information on the VOW to Hire Heroes Act of 2011 is available http://benefits.va.gov/vow/index.ht m.
Inspiration Point
The Holy Spirit--An Absolute Essential
should naturally become greater. Unfortunately, a lot of Christians sit in church week after week, going through the motions yet lacking passion and failing to grow. How is such a thing possible? Tragically, many believers are unaware of the essential ministry of God's Spirit. The Holy Spirit is a member of the Trinity and co-equal with God the Father and God the Son. The opening chapter of Scripture tells us that He existed before the formation of the earth and in fact participated in creation (Gen. 1:2, 26). Today, He has the critical role of helping and counseling all believers. The Holy Spirit is a gift to every child of God. His presence within us isn't something we have to earn or acquire. Rather, it is a marvelous privilege--by indwelling our hearts, He can guide and strengthen, steering each believer away from danger and into truth (John 16:7-8). Scripture tells us that Jesus came so we could experience a full life (10:10). This is possible only when we listen to His Spirit and obey. Are you experiencing the abundant life Jesus promised? He wasn't talking about happy circumstances but rather the joy and contentment possible through a relationship with Him. If you're lacking in this area, consider your understanding of the Holy Spirit, and pray to be in tune with His promptings.
Read Luke 24:36-49 Salvation occurs when we trust Jesus as our Savior-He forgives us, transforms us, and sees us as righteous. In that moment, we are redeemed, and though we continue to struggle with sin, it is a defeated foe. Then as time goes on, our service, gifts, and love for Him

Lookin’ Around

Signs of the Times
“Hug a nurse,” directed the sign in our local hospital the other day. This was in connection with nurseappreciation week or nurse-awareness week or some such thing. “Not a good idea,” I thought to myself. It’s not that I don’t value or appreciate a good nurse. It’s just that one can’t normally walk up to someone and give them a big hug without expecting some repercussions. They’d think you went bonkers, in the first place. They might also take offense. “Who came up with that silly sign?” was my next thought. It wasn’t a local person since the sign was professionally done and obviously sent in from somewhere. Maybe they were just thinking metaphorically instead of literally, but I somehow suspect there might have been a better way to promote the nursing profession. “Thank a nurse,” might have been more appropriate or something in that vein. Quite a few signs give me pause. Take the one on the hill going down into a nearby city. It says something like, “Unmuffled Dynamic Compression Braking Prohibited.” When I first saw that sign I thought, “What on earth are they talking about? Can I do that? Am I doing that? What’s the penalty?” Being curious, I naturally called Loren since he is a sponge about such technical information. It also sounded like something he might have done or at least know about. Sure enough, he had done it. When I asked him, I got a full report about it being commonly known as “Jake braking” after the inventor. It’s a way diesel trucks slow themselves through engine compression in order to save their regular brakes. Prohibition is because it makes a loud obnoxious sound. Good enough. My Ford Explorer is neither a diesel nor a truck so I was safe. Then there are those signs that just seem to bug me for no good reason. Take the one in clinics that says, “Should any patient wish to discuss fees or charges, you are encouraged to ask about them.” This may not be wrong grammatically, but it is awkward and seems to start out hypothetically and then switch midstream. I think I could write a better notice than that. Maybe something like, “If you have a question about fees or charges, please ask about them. Not that it would make any difference in what you are charged, of course.” Other people are often amused or irritated by signs as well. As a result, they take pictures of them and post them on Facebook or elsewhere on the Internet. For instance, there is the photo of a normal “Stop” sign with a smaller white sign below saying, “No Stopping Anytime.” You can’t have it both ways. Another says, “Entrance Only. Do Not Enter.” How’s that again? I also like the one that says, “Speed Limit 14 ½ MPH.” That is maybe a little picky. In a remote area of a local town, there is a sign that prohibits making a U-turn. Trouble is, if you don’t make a U-turn, you have to go on a roundabout drive that leads nowhere or out of town but certainly not anywhere you want to go. As a result, no one pays any attention and illegal turns are the norm. That is similar to my college which liked to post notices that there should be “No Walking on the Grass.” That might work in some countries where people behave properly, but not in the U S of A. We here are more apt to walk on the grass if there is a notice saying we shouldn’t than if there isn’t. This is especially so since there is no real penalty involved if you do. I figure if they can’t make sidewalks that go directly from one place to another, they deserve to have their grass walked on. After all, the shortest distance between two points is a straight line and not a colorful stroll over winding indirect pathways. I particularly hate signs that warn you about or prohibit stuff using symbols I don’t understand. On the freeway, there is one showing the back end of a vehicle with swerving tracks behind it. I looked that up once and think it means slippery when wet, but I always forget exactly what it means and just grumble around when I see it. If they mean the road is slippery when wet, why doesn’t the sign just say that instead of implying it through some vague symbol? By the way, if you want to hug a nurse, you’re too late. Hug-a-nurse week was earlier this month. Never mind. You can still make illegal U-turns, walk on the grass, and do a bit of unmuffled dynamic compression braking. Sounds like fun. Let’s get right on out there and ignore or disobey signs or at least grumble about them quite a bit.

their breath, and spent all day in the saddle on Saturday, trailing Bob and Charlie Fortune’s yearlings from the ranch down to the Carr place, south and west of White River. Bob’s brother-in-law, Mark Nelson, from Philip was also down to help, along with Chad Davis and Grady, Garrett, and Gage Davis, and of course Abby Fortune. The weather was nice and cool, and the yearlings traveled well. There were a few rain showers through the day, but not enough to cause any discomfort. Badure’s branded on Tuesday. Several neighbors came including Wade Fox, Frank and Jesse Carlson, Pam and Mackenzie Word, Charlie and Abby Fortune, Richard Jobgen, Casey Jensen, Colter and Abby Carlson, Francie Davis and sons, Jerry Grimes, and many others. There was a slight breeze all day which helped keep the heat factor down. Brianna Badure is home from college, and enjoyed getting back into the fray and wrestling with her dad, Baxter. Brisa and Martin Badure enjoyed helping mom, Dana, mark the calves after they had their vaccinations. After the branding, everyone gathered back at Allen’s new pole shed, which is attached to his house, for lunch. It still has a dirt floor, but Allen said as soon as they get the cement poured, they will have a dance in it. Mike Blom received a new order of eight ducklings this week. He said that they are completely impractical, but so much fun to watch. He is hoping these live longer than the ducks he had two years ago. They would come up from his stock pond every time he turned the sprinkler on in his yard, and they would have a insanely good time running through the sprinkler. Several neighbor kids have enjoyed getting to feed those ducks as well. Sydney Addison came over with her dad DJ on Saturday and helped catch the ducklings and put them into a small cage so Mike could clean out their tank. The little ducks make an incredible mess, and really make a stink if Mike doesn’t clean the tank at least every couple of days. Francie Davis left for Minneapolis with Chad’s mom and sister on Thursday. They visited family out there, attended a baby shower and a wedding shower, and enjoyed the long weekend away. Francie also held an Arbonne workshop while she was there, and met some great ladies that she is going to have to go back and see again soon. However, she will find a driver again as the traffic in Minneapolis is just a tad bit busier than Belvidere traffic! Ronda Dennis attended graduation in Kadoka on Sunday and afterwards Ronda and Rick went to Lori and Aaron Iversen’s to help Taya celebrate her 5th birthday. Her requested birthday supper was brats and hamburgers. Everyone enjoyed ice cream cake afterwards. Everyone is ready for summer and the kids are all excited that this is the last week of school. Jodie and Scot O’Bryan are getting set up for their first playday at their arena on June 5 at 5:30 p.m. They will have playdays on the first Tuesday of every month through the summer. Next Sunday is the Belvidere Volunteer Fire Department’s burger, brat and bean feed starting at 5:00 p.m. at the Belvidere Fire Hall. There will be a cash raffle that night, along with a free-will offering to help keep the fire trucks and equipment in good working order. Following the feed, the Firemen’s Ball will be up at JR’s with Westbound playing. The dance will start at 8:00 p.m.

“When you’re angry, pretend you are a bird. Sing just a little but don’t say a word.” Last Sunday afternoon, May 13, the DNP Quilters in Mission celebrated Laurene Emery’s birthday with cake and tea. Correction: Scott Brickman graduated from WDT at the top of his class, which numbered 470, not 40 as misstated in last week’s news. He was the only graduate with a 4.0 GPA.

Governor urges safe travel for Memorial Day weekend
Gov. Dennis Daugaard is asking motorists to be extra cautious on South Dakota highways during the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. South Dakota highways have been fatality-free during this threeday holiday weekend the last two years. In 2011, however, 30 people were injured in 123 crashes. Eight of those crashes were alcohol-related, according to statistics from the State Office of Highway Safety. “Memorial Day weekend is the kickoff for the summer travel season, and highways will almost certainly be busier than usual with many families traveling during the holiday period,’’ Gov. Daugaard said. “I hope everyone has a great time with family and friends. Please make safe choices as you travel, and please follow traffic laws that are in place to help keep all of us safe.’’ The Governor encourages drivers to: •Follow speed limits. It is not safe to travel faster than posted speed limits. •Wear a seatbelt. As the Office of Highway Safety slogan says, “Someone needs you. Buckle up.’’ •Avoid drinking and driving. •Avoid distractions. • Slow down through construction zones, not only because fines are double in those zones but also for your own safety and the safety of highway workers.
Low stress cattle handling seminar will be held during Tri-County Ag Day June 8
The difference between working with people or animals who want to do something, versus working with people or animals who don't is amazing, says Dr. Tom Noffsinger, a large animal veterinarian and low-stress livestock handling consultant. "We've all seen lots of people ask cattle to do things in a way that took away the cattle's self-esteem," says Noffsinger, who has practiced low-stress cattle handling, and taught feed yard and commercial cattle producers the technique for more than 10 years. "Our goal is to create voluntary cattle movement." Dr. Noffsinger says the key to getting cattle to want to go where the cattle producer wants them to go is based on the cattle producer's ability to understand cattle and effectively communicate with them. He will introduce cattle producers to low-stress handling techniques and teach them how to effectively communicate with their cattle during a seminar at the Tri-County Ag Day June 8 beginning at 10:30 a.m. at the SDSU Cottonwood Research Station. "Each time cattle change their address, cattle producers need to see that time as an opportunity to increase cattle confidence in where they live," says Noffsinger, of working with young calves, moving cattle for branding, weaning, or after purchase and feed yard arrival. Along with reducing the labor force needed to move and work cattle, low-stress cattle handling is proven to have a positive impact on the bottom-line. "It increases their feed intake, improves immune function and disease resistance," Noffsinger said. "It also creates honesty in cattle, so they communicate their true state of health, instead of hiding lameness and signs of illness." More Tri-County Ag Day details There is a $25 registration fee for the Low-Stress Cattle Handling seminar; it covers all members of the same operation. Because low-stress cattle handling isn't about how one individual does things, but it is about how everyone works together, we would encourage adults and youth who work with livestock to all attend the seminar together. Along with the seminar, TriCounty Ag Day also includes a trade show, which will open at 10 a.m. and run to about 8 p.m. The trade show is open to the public. Tri-County Ag Day includes a poster session featuring SDSU research projects and Extension programs. Participants will have an opportunity to visit with SDSU researchers and Extension Specialists about current research and projects South Dakota State University is working on. Participants are encouraged to share ideas for research and future programming. An Ag Appreciation Banquet will be held at 6 p.m. to thank area producers. The banquet is sponsored by area business; SDSU ice cream will be served. Everyone is invited to attend, even if you can't make it to the low-stress livestock handling seminar. Please come and enjoy the meal and an opportunity to visit with vendors at the trade show. Gold sponsors for the event include: Alltech, Boehringer-Ingelheim Vetmedica, Inc, Cattle Business Weekly, Certified Angus Beef, Dakota Radio Group, First National Bank and Agency-Philip, Golden Veterinary Service, Golden West Telecommunications, Grossenburg Implement, Hubbard Feeds, Kadoka Community Betterment Association, KBHB Radio, Kennedy Implement, Midwest Cooperatives, Pennington/Jackson County Farm Bureau, Philip Livestock Auction, South Dakota Grassland Coalition, and Tri-State Livestock News. June 1 is the registration deadline; pre-register for the seminar, banquet or both by calling the Rapid City Regional Extension Center at 394-1722 or e-mailing Paulette Morse at paulette.morse@sdstate.edu. For more information, contact Adele Harty at adele.harty@sdstate.edu or 394-1722.

National Range Judging Competition … Brandon Dale, Chance Knutson, Austin Thayer and Logan Christensen take time for a picture in Oklahoma City. --courtesy photo “Winning is not everything, but the effort to win is.” - Zig Ziglar For the final push into the summer Kadoka FFA had another great event. On April 28 Chance Knutson, Brandon Dale, Logan Christensen and Austin Thayer left for the National Range Judging Competition. They had many exciting and enjoyable events take place over the course of the week while they were in Oklahoma City. When interviewed all of the gentlemen said they enjoyed something different about the trip. Logan was asked what his favorite part of the trip was and he stated that he enjoyed getting to see new places, things and meeting new people. He thought the overall experience was exciting and he was happy he got the privilege to go. Chance said that he enjoyed seeing new sites such as the Lazy E arena, going to the horse races and he had fun eating “all you can eat ribs” at the Rib Crib. Both Brandon and Austin liked the Lazy E arena and the National Cowboy Museum. The guys had a great time on their trip, with taking 14th place in the nation, and look forward to trying for the opportunity to go again. This year’s FFA events are over until Range Camp and Range Land Days in June, but for now, it’s summertime! --by Tessa Stout

Planning/Zoning Commission: Ken Wilmarth addressed the council to give an update of the planning/zoning commission. He stated that they have a draft completed of a comprehensive plan for the city of Kadoka. A public meeting is required for the commission to give a presentation to the citizen’s and address concerns and answer any questions the public may have regarding the plan. Tentatively, the public hearing is scheduled for May 30, 2012. Justin Otsea, from the Central South Dakota Enhancement District has been working with the commission on this plan and stated that it is a 20 to 30 year plan and encompasses all areas of the city. B. Auditorium Sound System: Bob Fugate discussed the current sound system in the auditorium. He stated that currently the sound is not evenly distributed and depending on where someone is sitting, they may or may not be able to hear everything that is taking place. The current sound system was a joint venture between the city and the school and the school advised him that someone is coming out from Mid-States Audio to look at the system and propose changes and upgrades that can be done to improve the quality of the sound. In addition to talking to the City, he stated that he has discussed funding for the improvements with KCBA, and plans to talk to Horizons. The music parents have also expressed an interest in being involved with the project. He will also discuss the matter at a future school board meeting, when he has more information from Mid-States Audio. C. Ruby Sanftner: Ruby stated that the nursing home project is approx. 82% completed. The sidewalks are done, the fire sprinklers are in and the bathroom project is in progress. She then addressed a request on behalf of the Catholic Church related to the ditch and culvert system in the front of the Church. She stated that the Church would like to trench out the ditch, and put in a new culvert (approx. 20 to 30 feet in length). They would then like to put rock in over the culvert to allow for more parking. Solon stated that he is concerned about the length of the culvert and problems that would be caused by freezing in the winter. Jorgensen stated that he believes that the city should inspect the location, and review current city ordinances prior to any decision being made. D. Fire Alarm System/Auditorium: The city received an estimate of $15,000.00 to install a fire alarm system in the auditorium. However, South Dakota law requires that a registered, professional engineer design all fire alarm systems, in buildings the size of the auditorium. Several firms were suggested. The council stated that they would like to receive quotes from the various firms in order to determine who would do the engineering work on the project. The project plan is to proceed and complete the engineering work in 2012 and install the actual system in June of 2013. The quotes will be obtained and presented to the council for review and approval at a future meeting. E. Budget Motion/CDBG Funds: The city was awarded a $145,000.00 Community Development Block Grant for the purpose of installation of the fire sprinkler system at the nursing home. Shuck made Motion 12-05-14:63 to approve an increase to the city’s 2012 budget in the amount of $145,000.00 to reflect receipt of Community Development Block Grant Funds for the Kadoka Nursing Home Fire Sprinkler System Installation Project. The motion was seconded by Jorgensen. A roll call vote was taken, with all members voting yes and the motion carried 6-0. F. Building Permit/Glenn Freeman: A building permit was presented to the council for approval. After discussion, Jorgensen made Motion 12-05-14:64 to approve the building permit, contingent upon a review of the site by Solon and Riggins and their approval. The motion was seconded by Willert, with all members voting yes and the motion carried 60. G. Finance Office Storage: The room in the auditorium that formerly housed the school’s weight room is vacant. Currently, music dept. items are being kept in the room. In addition, the city is in need of additional space to store their financial records. It was determined that shelving built along one wall would be sufficient to resolve the city’s storage problem and would leave most of the room for music items to be stored for the school. The finance officer and Mr. Shuck stated that they could easily resolve the issue to the benefit of both the city and the school. COUNCIL REPORTS: A. Water/Sewer: The manhole on Locust Street has been installed. B. Streets: The asphalt project on Locust Street is scheduled for Thursday, May 17, 2012. The council gave their approval for Solon to purchase additional asphalt for repairs on other streets in the city. The street on the west side of the Nursing Home was again discussed. The street needs to be fixed and the question was who was responsible for the cost. No decision or action was taken. C. Solid Waste: Prang had no report. Willert stated that the door between the office and main area of the transfer station needs to be replaced. Jackie Stilwell, on behalf of Horizon’s, requested that there be a two week period designated for city-wide clean up. The dates suggested are May 29, 2012 through June 9, 2012. The council gave their approval and Horizons will put the ad in the paper. D. Liquor: The alarm system malfunctioned and repairs have been done and it is working correctly now. The main cost for the repairs will be travel expense for the service technician to come and do the repair work. There will be a dance on May 19, 2012. E. Auditorium/Park: Word had no report. Shuck discussed mosquito spraying. F. Public Safety: The monthly report was distributed. G. Mayor’s Report: no report Shuck made Motion 12-05-14:65 to adjourn.

For more information on planning a visit, see www.nps.gov/badl. Active duty members of the U.S. Military and their dependents can pick up their pass at any Badlands National Park entrance booth. They must show a current, valid military identification card to obtain their pass. More information is available at www.nps.gov/findapark/passes.htm. Minuteman Missile National Historic Site does not charge an entrance fee, so passes are not required but can be picked up at Badlands. “Minuteman Missile National Historic Site tells a contemporary military story that is directly connected to our airmen at neighboring Ellsworth Air Force Base,” stated Superintendent Ruben Andrade. Minuteman Missile will offer tours of its Delta-1 Launch Control Center daily at 10:00 a.m. and 2:00 p.m. Missile silo Delta-9 (I-90, Exit 116) is also open to the public daily from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tour tickets are given out on a first come, first served basis by coming to the Visitor Center, located in Cactus Flat, off I-90 at Exit 13, adjacent to the Conoco gas station. This military version of the America the Beautiful National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass also permits free entrance to sites managed by the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service, the Bureau of Land Management, the Bureau of Reclamation, and the U.S. Forest Service. The pass is also available at these locations. “Through the years, military members, especially those far from home in times of conflict, have found inspiration in America’s patriotic icons and majestic landscapes, places like the Statue of Liberty and the Grand Canyon that are cared for by the National Park Service and symbolize the nation that their sacrifices protect,” said National Park Service Director Jonathan B. Jarvis. “This new pass is a way to thank military members and their families for their service and their sacrifices.” National parks and the military have strong ties going back to the establishment of Yellowstone as the world’s first national park in 1872. The U.S. Cavalry watched over America’s national parks and did double duty, serving as the first park rangers until the National Park Service was created 44 years later. During World War II, many parks were set aside for the training and care of military personnel. Today, dozens of national parks commemorate military battles and achievements.

Thank Yous
Thank you to so many of you... community friends and neighbors who helped remove and clean up debris from last Friday’s storm. Much of the debris and wind-ravaged roofing materials had to be picked up by hand and fortunately many willing and generous hands gave a speedy response and Main Street was quickly cleared. Saturday, again thanks to the efforts of many willing helpers, the bulk of our storm-ravaged roof was cut apart, drug out, loaded and hauled off. Thank you, each and everyone of you, Don & Randi Hogen’s Hardware Thank you to the parents of the eighth grade graduates for the reception that was held to honor them. It was very nice and so enjoyable. Ella Rock

Bob Fanning, Plant Pathology Field Specialist • 605-842-1267 Foliar Fungicides for Wheat Scab and Late Rust Infestations Wheat producers will want to watch the weather forecast and monitor the “Fusarium Head Blight Risk Assessment Tool – 2012”:http://www.wheatscab.psu.e du/riskTool_2012.html over the next few weeks. With wet weather during anthesis (flowering) and the early stages of grain development, any wheat field can be infected with scab to some degree, but those at highest risk are planted into corn, grain sorghum, millet or wheat residue. The 2012 prediction tools provide daily estimates of risk for Fusarium head blight based on weather the past seven days. Foliar fungicide applications will also provide protection against late season rust infestations, and the risk of leaf and/or stripe rust may influence those decisions. Progression of rusts moving up from the south can be monitored by visiting the USDA Cereal Disease Laboratory: http://www.ars. usda.gov/Main/docs.htm?docid=97 57. The most current information can be found at the link, “Reports on the Current Rust Situation in the U.S.” Information during the previous two weeks is summarized in the most recent “2012 Cereal Rust Bulletin”. 2012 Rust Observation Maps are updated as reports are received. For information on fungicide recommendations, access “South Dakota Wheat Fungicide Recommendations”: http://pubstorage.sdstate.edu/AgBio_Publications/artic les/FS952.pdf and/or “Managing Crop Diseases with Fungicides”: http://igrow.org/up/resources/033005-2012.pdf. HOSTA Tractor Safety Schools The HOSTA, or Hazardous Occupation and Safety Training in Agriculture, program is alive and well in South Dakota. SDSU Extension was waiting to see how the US Department of Labor’s proposed youth farm labor rule would fare before making plans to conduct the program. The proposed rule, which would have significantly tightened restrictions on youth performing hired farm labor, even on farms owned and operated by their parents, was recently withdrawn. Plans are in place to build on the current program, which is outlined on the SDSU HOSTA website:http://www.sdstate.edu/abe/ex tension/hosta/index.cfm, but for now, will be conducted much as it has been for several years. The Hazardous Occupations Order in Agriculture (HOOA) law states that any individual who is 14 to 15 years old must be trained on the safe operation of tractors, farm machinery, and other hazardous activities in the agricultural industry. 14 to 15-year-old youths who are working on their home or family farm are exempt from the training and certification requirements. As of now, HOSTA training sessions will be held on Friday, June 8 at the Winner Regional Extension Center, and Monday, June 11 at the Ag & Biosystems Engineering Building on the SDSU Campus in Brookings. One or more additional locations are being considered. The sessions will begin at 10:00 am with classroom instruction until noon, at which time the youth attending will take the written test. The afternoon will be used to conduct the skills and driving tests which are required to qualify for a HOSTA certificate in addition to passing the written test. The cost of the training is $15, which includes a noon meal. To receive a HOSTA certificate, youth must be 14 years of age. Youth who are 13 years of age are welcome to attend the training, complete the written, skills and driving tests, and their certificate will be mailed to them when they turn 14. Youth who only work on their family farm or otherwise do not need a HOSTA certificate are also welcome to attend. Youth desiring a HOSTA certificate should study the 48 “core” task sheets on the HOSTA website, on which the written test is based, and which satisfies the “24 hours of instruction” previously required. For more information, contact Uilk at 688-5675 Nic nicholas.uilk@sdstate.edu or Bob Fanning at 842-1267 robert.fanning@sdstate.edu.

Anything goes … at graduation. If graduate Brady Sudbeck (L) feels like wearing shorts and tennis shoes is more comfortable -- wear them. Or, like the junior class ushers, Katie Lensegrav and Mariah Pierce, who stretch the style from flat to high. --photos by Ronda Dennis
Jackson County FSA
Michael Goetzinger, County Executive Director
ANNUAL CROP CERTIFICATION The next phase of the Farm Program is crop certification. This entails producers/operators and landowners (getting a share of the crop) are reporting planted AND crops to be planted for crop year 2012 to their local FSA County Office. The process will be that the County Office is calling producers/operators to set up appointments to do this. Of course, if you want in sooner-if you have a Federal Crop worked wheat loss, for example, just give us a call. Deadline to report acres is 7/15. Every year, at crop reporting, we see instances of new breaking that was NOT reported to FSA. Remember, the sod/swamp provisions require you to report any new breaking or drainage work PRIOR to doing these activities. This is so that the ground can be evaluated and determined if highly erodible or a wetland and if need a conservation compliance plan, etc. IMPORTANT DATES & DEADLINES •USDA Ag Service center closed in observance of Memorial Day – May 28 •Final day to obtain 2011 crop sunflowers & grain sorghum grain loans- May 31; •Farm Program (DCP) or Average Crop Revenue Election (ACRE) – June 1; •Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payment Program (SURE) 2010 crop disaster – June 1 •2011 ACRE Production Evidence – July 15; Certification of Planted Acres – July 15; •MILC milk program–Sept. 30, 2012; •Multi-Peril Crop Insurance for the next crop year – Contact your crop insurance agent or the regional Risk Management Agency office.
