Freshmen Impact: Caught in the Moment was held in Wall
taught by local law enforcement, fire and rescue personnel, and people that have been impacted by the effects of driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. South Dakota State Troopers showed students slides of fatal wrecks while Trooper Ross, who is a restorations officer of crash scenes, explained to students the importance of respecting vehicles and others and to be observant of road conditions. Trooper Ross emphasized the reasons to pay attention while traveling. Ross asked, “Is there anything in this world you need to be an hour early for?” He then went on to say this is why we are here today, all the slides are of people who killed themselves for stupid reasons. As students proceeded to the mock accident, screams of pain, crying and sirens in the back ground could be heard. EMTs, fire fighters, troopers and paramedics accessed the most critical and the Life Flight helicopter and hearse were then called to the accident. After the last victim was loaded into the ambulance and the fatality placed in a body bag, students were asked to line up two-by-two and proceed through the Honor Guard, back into the community center. When the students entered into the grand hall they were met by a casket with a senior graduation picture placed on the closed lid. Next to the casket stood Brady Sudbeck from Kadoka, the young man who was to graduate from high school in May. He stood there with his head bowed because he was the one who was in the casket. Judge Bob Mandel from Rapid City presided over the vehicular homicide trial of Alexis Billings. Prosecutor Roxi Erickson argued that the maximum sentence should be handed down. Erickson said, “She was the one who got behind the wheel after drinking. She was the one who drove too fast and ran a stop sign. She caused the death of a passenger and left one in critical condition.” Your honor it’s not okay to drink and drive -- it’s criminal. Erickson ended her argument on that note. Dan Van Gorp argued on behalf of his client. Alexis is just a child herself, she is only 18 years old. If given a 30 year term in prison she will be 48 when she gets out. Van Gorp stated, “She is sorry, she will do anything that the court orders, but take pity on her, she is sorry.” Judge Mandel informed Billings that she intentionally and illegally became intoxicated and got behind the wheel. There are consequences for what you did and I sentence you to eight years behind bars. Actors for the mock accident were: Cheyenne Deering, Libbi Sykora, Alexis Billings, Kailey Rae Sawvell, Anna Kitterman, Kale Lytle, Ryder Wilson from the Wall High School and Tess Byrd, Sean Ireland and Brady Sudbeck with Kadoka Area High School. As the South Dakota State Troopers say, “If this program keeps just one of our teens from making a wrong decision, it is worth all of the time and money invested.” Brady Sudbeck, Sean Irelandand Tess Byrd volunteered to be in the skit and put in two practice sessions before the event. Sean was the main character in the skit, while Brady was Sean’s’ body double in the accident outside. Tess and Brady were made up to look as if they had just been an accident and laid out in the wrecked vehicles where ambulance and fire units were able to run through a practice response session. Tess Byrd’s character the passenger in the vehicle who was struck by the driver who was under the influenced was life-flighted. -- by Laurie Hindman

The consequences of a bad decision … A mock alcohol related accident was presented to the students who attended the TriCounty Alcohol Awareness Program at Wall on Wednesday, April 25. Brady Sudbeck, laying on top of the jeep, was pronounced dead at the scene, while Alexis Billings from Wall, who was driving, and Anna Kitterman, sitting in the back of the jeep, were both injured. --photos by Laurie Hindman
A deadly “mock” crash occurred behind the Wall Community Center on Wednesday, April 25. The crash was the result of a drunk driver hitting a suburban full of young people. The crash sent seven to the hospital, one to the mortuary and the driver to jail. I’m so sorry, I’m so sorry were the words uttered over and over by Wall senior Alexis Billings who was driving the jeep that had hit a suburban full of her friends. When the 911 call came in freshmen students from Wall, Philip and Kadoka listened as Samra Trask, who was first upon the accident, described the scene to the dispatcher. 911 dispatched the South Dakota Highway Patrol, local deputies from Wall, fire departments from Wall, Interior and Philip and the Wall and Rapid City ambulances along with Life Flight. The FRESHMAN IMPACT: Caught in the Moment drug and alcohol awareness program consists of multiple learning stations for students ranging from a course simulating drunk driving to a presentation showing what happens in a rollover if you are not wearing your seatbelt and a mock accident. The National Guard Counter Drug Program from Rapid City brought a climbing wall and a OH 58 Kiowa helicopter for students to experience getting high on life, not on drugs. Game, Fish and Park personnel explained the importance of wearing a life jacket and protective gear and not drinking while out on the water. The Wall, Philip and Interior Fire departments gave mock demonstrations on how they extricate people from wreckages. The Wall ambulance then showed how a patient is strapped to a backboard and loaded into an ambulance. The Front Porch Coalition talked to the students about suicide prevention. Presentations were also given on texting while driving and synthetic drugs. These learning stations were

Harriet Noteboom has been selected as the May Resident of the Month at the Kadoka Nursing Home. She was born to Henry and Cornelia Roghair in Sibley, Iowa, on November 10, 1916. Harriet was raised in a family of 12 children -- six boys and six girls. She was the oldest of the girls and today, she has a sister and two brothers still living. The family moved to Okaton, SD, where she attended grade school and her first year of high school. “I remember that I was always the only girl in my class,” Harriet noted. In order for her younger sisters to attend school, she dropped out of school to help at home but continue her education through correspondence courses until she received her diploma. While her brothers worked in the field, she girls were busy cooking and sewing. “My dad said, ‘None of my girls are going to wear pants!’” Therefore they stayed busy sewing dresses for the girls. Well, that was until WWII when some of the boys went off to war and the girls helped out in the field. Then it was on to Chamberlain where she took nursing training and later worked as a practical nurse at the Chamberlain hospital. The hospital, she said, closed during the depression, but she continued to work for several years. Harriet married Dick Noteboom in Japan when he was in the service and they lived there for nine months. He retired from the service after 20 years and moved back to the family place in Okaton. The couple enjoyed traveling, which included trips to Mexico, Canada and all over the United States. Harriet cared for her husband when his heath started failing until he became a resident at the Kadoka Nursing Home. He passed away in 2008 and on June 29, 2010, Harriet became a resident at the home. She recalls her younger years, learning to crochet when she was only five years old and never being too fond of sweets. “I’d rather have a cracker than a cookie,” she said. “I never was a coffee drinker.” She went on to say that food is the least of her worries, she would rather read.

Chronic pain means more movement
The word “chronic” means longterm and unrelenting, not something that goes away quickly. Add to this the descriptor “pain,” and you have chronic pain, which happens to too many people in too many guises. There is chronic low back pain, recurrent migraine headaches, the post-herpetic pain following shingles, the neuropathic foot pain of diabetes, and the body-wide muscle pain and focal tenderness of fibromyalgia, to name a few. Recently I learned about another chronic pain diagnosis called regional sympathetic dystrophy, which can sometimes follow a complex orthopedic surgery. The bad news is that once a person has one of these chronic pain syndromes, it is very difficult to be rid of it, like an unwanted guest who never wants to leave. Surgery is too often no help and sometimes makes it worse. And too frequently our medicines are not enough help, even when accelerated up to narcotics, muscle relaxers, or antiseizure drugs. Even injections of steroids are invasive, expensive, and if overused can be harmful. And in the end, too many people still suffer, the pain takes control, and shuts them down. Most helpful is to understand that the cause or at least the worsening of such chronic pain can be from not enough movement. If a joint or muscle is not used regularly, it barks and bites when called upon to moved, which in turn results in less movement, more pain, even less movement and so on. This cascade if unstopped can result in severe disability. Thus the reason they say, “Use it, or lose it!” Add to this more time to dwell on the pain, often a sense of hopelessness, the addiction potential of pain meds, and it becomes a viscious cycle. Paradoxically very often the most effective way to bring someone out of spiraling and progressive chronic pain is to get them moving. The answer is usually not more surgery or more pain medicines. Of course each case is different, and sometimes severe inflammation needs to be rested, but often carefully moving through stiffness and causing some pain can be the answer. As they say, “You sometimes have to pain to gain. One patient told me his best help was to accept the fact that he has to live with pain and get on with life. Studies show that return to function, although not easy, is the key to rehabilitation. This comes with physical/occupational therapy, rehab programs, and mostly an internal drive to get better and get moving. Chronic pain doesn’t have to mean progressive immobility, disability, and hopelessness. We should remember to accept the pain when we have to, and, when advised by the doctor, to move those muscles. Use it, or lose it.

Inspiration Point
The Fullness of God in You
like? A "whole person" is generally satisfied with life. He feels loved and is able to love others in return. Difficulties and hardships don't devastate him, because he is able to go through them with confidence in God. He isn't a complainer or someone who is quick to blame others. A positive attitude guards his mind since he knows that the Lord will work everything out for good (Rom. 8:28). Being a Christian doesn't automatically make us feel complete. Fullness comes only when we experience God's love for us. For many years, I knew theologically that the Lord loved me. I even preached about it, but I didn't really feel it. Only after I took a deep look at my life and started dealing with events that had fractured my soul in childhood did I begin to experience His love in an intimate way. Once I felt the security of His love for me, I discovered great joy in walking in obedience to His will. The reason was that I knew I could trust Him to meet all my needs in His time and way. Do you feel God's love, or is it just a biblical fact to you? If you long for wholeness, the key is to experience an intimate relationship with Jesus Christ. This is possible only when you're willing to open up and let the Lord search your heart. He'll reveal what's holding you back from accepting His love.
Read Ephesians 3:14-21 Have you ever wondered if you are a "whole person"? We all have struggles in life that could make us feel incomplete, but the apostle Paul says we can be "filled up to all the fullness of God" (v. 19). What does that look

Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
Everyone has me all figured out. I think I have to become more unpredictable. Take the restaurant I’m in while writing this. When I came in, they said “hi” and, without asking what I wanted, brought me water, coffee, cream, and a stirring spoon. Neither did they bring me a menu. They knew I would probably take the special, and, if not that, I would still, except on very rare occasions, already know what I felt like eating. How’s that for predictability? Tut, tut. It’s the same down at the grocery store. If my brand of laundry detergent goes on sale, they just automatically order a case of it for me. They know I’ll need it before long, and they’re nice enough to get it for me at a reduced price when possible. I can’t really complain about that. Even the post office has my number. If I walk in and there’s a package for me, they’ll get it and hand it to me before I have time to open the box and find the little slip saying I have a package. My appearance doesn’t change much either except maybe for the length of my hair since I seldom get haircuts in a timely manner. My dress code normally consists of jeans plus either a sweatshirt in the winter or a pocket T-shirt in the summer. Depending on the temperature, I might have on a brown leather jacket or a jean jacket. The shirts are generally gray, brown, blue or some other fairly dull color although I do have one maroon pocket T and a red sweatshirt. Those are, of course, for festive occasions or when I’m in a particularly cheerful frame of mind. Maybe because I myself am so predictable (and/or dull,) I somewhat enjoy those folks who aren’t. They’re fun to watch although I don’t usually try to emulate their behavior or be that way myself. Opposites attract and all that. For instance, there is a youngish local salesman who amuses me. You never know what he’ll be wearing next. It might be extremely pointed shoes, a jaunty hat, cutoffs, low-slung jeans, or anything else that strikes his fancy. Whenever I’m in the vicinity of where he might be, I keep a lookout for him to see what he’s up to that day. I have a young cousin, too, that I don’t always immediately recognize since she changes her clothes and hairstyle at the drop of a hat. I’m talking about a complete change in looks here from day to day, and not just a few simple modifications. It’s the same for a local rancher who sometimes is dressed as a cowboy, which he partly is, but also as a baseball player or a businessman. Occasionally I have to look twice to recognize him. I call him a chameleon. There are some fairly wild cowboys around as well that keep you guessing. We have employed some, and others are seen at brandings and other local affairs. Scott was one such character who worked on the place a while back. I have a picture of him calmly sitting on a tame roan cow in the middle of a pasture. Talk about being a “cow” boy. To the best of my recollection, that is not something I have ever done or, I guess, particularly wanted to do. It was fun to see him do it, however. We have similar such fellows around now although I will mention no names to somewhat protect their lack of innocence. Come to think of it, though, instead of worrying about being too predictable, I should just redefine myself. I may be easy enough to figure out, but, on the other hand, I’m fairly stable. That’s a good thing, isn’t it? I mean, I haven’t ever really taken off at a moments notice to vacation in Tahiti as I’ve always threatened to do, although I do have a valid passport in case I want to. I remember to pay the light bill and am not in the habit of reeling home at 3:00 a.m. There must be something halfway respectable about that. Not only that. This restaurant I’m in hasn’t completely figured me out yet anyway. They still, except for one server, always bring me an after-dinner mint which I never eat. The same server also remembers I certainly don’t need a straw in my drinking water and will immediately remove it if it’s there. The other servers haven’t cottoned on to those things just yet so maybe I’m not completely predictable and boring to all of them. I’m just stable. You can count on me. See. It all comes down to how you look at it.
with her daughter, Elaine Fuhrman, and family. On Sunday, Dolores said her vision is actually worse right now than it was before, but she hopes that will improve soon, especially when she gets some new glasses. She is quite glad to be back home. Mike Livermont and Amelia went to Ft. Pierre on Saturday and took in the horse races. He didn’t win any money since he didn’t bet, but he enjoyed watching the races which are held there for a couple of weeks every year. There will be another weekend of races before they move on to Aberdeen for a bit. Mike’s roads are good now since they rebuilt them on a ridge and gave them a coat of gravel. He enjoys being able to get in and out more easily when it rains. Mike said he is just about done calving but hasn’t scheduled his branding just yet. Kenny and Roxie Fox attended the bull sale in Philip on Tuesday and came home with a couple of new bulls. Kenny said they are getting ready to hit the branding trail since many of those are scheduled and will be held shortly. Charlene Ceniceros reports a new addition to her family. Her granddaughter, who lives with her and is also named Charlene, had a baby boy on April 16 in Rapid City. The new little guy was named Noah Alfred Thomas Romero and joins a sister who had her first birthday in February. Charlene said Noah’s dad, Daryl Romero, has recently changed jobs and is now working at the detention center in Kyle. He had previously worked at Discount Fuel in Kadoka. Charlene’s Aunt Martha continues to live with her as well so they have several generations there under one roof—six people in all.

Marjorie Anne Letellier • 462-6228 If you really want to do something you’ll find a way; if you don’t, you will find an excuse. Robert and Sharon Ring made a business trip to Rapid City on Monday. Last Tuesday, it was a beautiful still day so the Blackpipe community members held a huge community clean-up project. Folks were busy picking up the trash and even delivered unburnable junk to the dumpsite behind the Blackpipe community building for pickup. The Rosebud trucks hauled out several heaping truckloads of scrap metal, old appliances and junk and the Rosebud Tribe firemen came and burned and cleaned up the rest. Everyone worked hard and the town looks great! All your hard work and how much you care shows! I love to boast when there is something to boast about in our little town. We got a head start on summer this week, too. The new ball field is clean, mowed and ready for action. Sure enough, they are busy practicing, too. Perhaps, they have even had a game. People were parked on the little knoll across the road, earlier in the week to watch, maybe they were just rushing the season. Yes, we are all anxious for our baseball season to begin. Sharon Ring accompanied Torey and Linda Ring to the spring concert held at Long Valley School on Wednesday evening. It was a very enjoyable evening, complete with musical and the band numbers, including six instrumental solos. It also was a farewell for the eighth grade graduate. Thursday the James Letelliers made a trip to Kadoka for parts. Monday was the last of the basketball games with White River. Tuesday, the kindergarten went to Reptile Gardens and the other grades, except for third, who went to the Outdoor Campus in Rapid City. The third grade will be taking a field trip with the White River third graders. Representing Norris School at the regional spelling bee in Murdo next Monday will be students: Jesus Barrera, Matraca White Hat, Gracie Charging Hawk and alternate Tahner Hart will go if one of the 5th graders is absent. The reports of rain accumulation over the week are saying we received about an a half an inch of moisture. It was mostly in the form of drizzle and intermittent showers during the week. Just enough to make the guys that wanted to brand wonder what to do. Local friends and neighbors helped brand at the Bertie Allard and Cliff and Pam Allard ranch on Saturday. Julie Letellier visited in the James Letellier home on Saturday. On Friday, Torey, Linda and Tyler Ring went to the music contest in Philip. Jeremy Ring performed a trumpet solo at the contest. Ed, Carol, Jesse, Pete and Marla Ferguson all helped brand at Allard’s on Saturday. Sunday Ed and Carol went to Rapid City to celebrate Carol’s birthday, which was
really on Saturday. After conducting business, they visited at the Cora and Scott Brickman home. Saturday, Sharon Allard of Spearfish arrived at the home of her mother, Maxine. Sharon came ladened with gifts of flowers and cards from her co-workers, and an orchid from her niece, etc. for Maxine’s birthday. Sharon was busy mowing around the home place and getting ready for a birthday dinner held on Sunday. Congratulations, to Maxine on her 89th birthday May 1. Hope your day is very special. Helping Maxine Allard celebrate an early 89th birthday dinner were her friends and neighbors, Ray and Gail Berry, Harry and Jeanne Merchen, Evan and Dorothy Bligh, and James and Marjorie Anne Letellier. Later in the afternoon, Mark and Dawn Koch of Custer also visited the Allards. Sunday afternoon, guests at the Harry Merchen home for a short visit were their daughter, Dawn, and husband, Mark Koch, of Custer and grandchildren. The Kochs were on their way to Chamberlain. Morgan Taft attended the Thursday night school dance in White River and was an overnight guest of some friends. Friday, Morgan took part in the music contest in Philip with a flute solo, vocal solo and also was a member of the mixed group called the “Sunrise Singers” from White River. Saturday, Susan and Morgan Taft helped the Allards brand. Get well wishes go out to Dan Taft who spent a few days in hospital in Rapid City last week due to a horse accident. Dan is home and on the mend. Hope, you will be back to your old self again soon.
“At the Drop of a Hat” Horse racing exhibit opens at the Rodeo Center
A new horse racing exhibit “At the Drop of a Hat” has opened at the Casey Tibbs SD Rodeo Center. The proverbial “At the Drop of a Hat” title represents how horse races were originally started. The Rodeo Center displays written recollections of racing available from the late 1800s to the present. With the rich history of horse racing in South Dakota, early rodeos included races of all types as either rodeo events or part of the celebration. Early races included horse relays, free for all’s, hides, chariots and ponies. Volunteer Researcher Diana Melvin states, “As far back as there were people and horses, there was a spirit of competition fueling human’s enjoyment of things that go fast.” The Rodeo Center was the benefactor of some of local horse breeder Clarence Bearry’s personal trophies, photos and papers upon his death. Gathering the items prompted the creation of this temporary exhibit at the Rodeo Center Museum. The display consists of many articles, newspapers and photos. “Visitors will probably recognize many of our locals in the photos,” Melvin states. “We received quite a collection of photos from families involved in horse racing over the decades.” One of which is Casey Tibb’s grandfather, who was a horseman and race horse trainer. Casey Tibb’s owners jockey silks are part of the display. The temporary exhibit will be available for viewing until September when a new temporary exhibit will be unveiled. Contact the Rodeo Center for museum hours. Several volunteers supported the research effort and exhibit preparation. Butch Tinant who trained race horses for Clarence Bearry provided pedigree research that traces the early breeding program of Bearry to Jeanne Anderson’s National Finals Rodeo (NFR) Barrel Horse (2010 and 2011). Anderson a resident of Kansas has campaigned a barrel racing horse that is a direct descendant of Bearry’s horses. This is just one example of the many breeding programs in South Dakota that included world famous SD racing to the rodeo arena stories. While Bearry’s gift was the impetus for the display the breeders, trainers and owners stories go deep in South Dakota’s history. Casey and Dee Hannum loaned Bearry’s refurbished chariot- a main stay in early chariot races to the museum. Local horsewoman Mary Compton Puckett provided research on several local youth who have become successful jockeys and trainers nationally and internationally. Her sons Bobby, Perry and Jimmy Compton, Terry and Turner, Fred Ecoffey and others. Nearby Agar, South Dakota was home to the Asmussen racing family. Keith and sons, Cash and Steve, have influenced the “sport of kings” worldwide. The photos, stories and artifacts make this truly an exciting and enjoyable display filling the temporary exhibit space at the museum. You will want to return more than once as several great racing to rodeo stories are being added. The race horse history and the influence on rodeo runs so deep and wide in the lives of South Dakotans that it is planned to expand the exhibit each spring to coincide with the annual horse racing in Fort Pierre. You will be delighted to find where early races were held, when pari-mutuel betting and regulation began and who bought a two million dollar simulcast ticket in South Dakota.

Lesa Perault graduated from the SDSU nursing program on Saturday in Rapid City. Her whole family was able to attend the graduation. Parents Mike and Marlene were there, of course, as were grandparents, Bud and Valene Perault, plus brothers and sisters, John, Bert, Melissa, Coleen and Laney. After the ceremony, everyone went to the Golden Corral for dinner and visiting. John came all the way from Kansas with a couple of his children. Marlene told him it was a long way to come, but he said he’d been to Bert’s graduation in Sioux Falls a bit ago so he was coming to Lesa’s too. John’s wife, Jenny, couldn’t come as her grandmother had had a stroke so she went there to see her the day before she passed away. Melissa came from Long Valley for the graduation but didn’t go out to Mike and Marlene’s that day. Everyone, though, was at the ranch and enjoyed dinner together on Sunday before most returned home, except Coleen and family of Brandon. Some birthdays were celebrated on Sunday as well. On the way home from Rapid City, various family members stopped to visit Grandma Lillian Carlson in Kadoka. Lesa still has her state boards to take in June but then will be a RN. Marlene said they had a really good weekend and enjoyed it a lot. Jo Rodgers went to Huron last weekend for a postmasters convention. She got to see a lot of old friends that she hadn’t seen in a while and got a few days away from her normal routine. Son Jory is just starting the track season where he competes in shot put and discus. Jo said her mom, Carolyn Manke, was expanding her flock of chickens this week with an influx of about 250 pullet chicks. Ronda Dennis also attended a convention over the weekend. Ronda, along with her husband, Rick, traveled to Chamberlain on Friday to attend the South Dakota Newspaper Convention. They returned home Saturday afternoon. Andy Schofield said his eldest son, Don, is five now and enjoying preschool in Kadoka on Tuesday through Thursday. There is still no word when Kate DeVries is expected back from Nevada. Cheryll Wells continues to help her parents in Hot Springs. She has been doing that all this year and has only really been home here for a couple of weeks. She hopes to return mid-May if things go well. Wally said he’d batched before and is getting along okay taking care of himself and his dog. Jim Willert attended Mansfield’s branding on Sunday. He held his own branding earlier in the week and picked a good day that wasn’t wet or too hot. At present he is getting critters sorted and worked for turning out to summer pasture. Jim said, now that his branding is over, he can relax and enjoy attending everyone else’s branding. Deb, meanwhile, continues to stay busy with the grocery store in Murdo. Son Jeff plans to be home most of May as the rodeo schedule is light that month. He is currently fourth in the saddle-bronc world standings. This weekend he went to Canning near Blunt to be an instructor at the Korkow rodeo school which is held there each spring and with which he has helped before. He went on Friday and was expected back on Sunday. Next weekend he plans to attend a rodeo in Oklahoma. Bunny Green was planning a trip to Pierre this weekend to have her dog sheared, but the weather wasn’t accommodating. Her current dog doesn’t shed so it has to be clipped from time to time. This is in contrast to her last dog, a pug, which left hair everywhere although she was Bunny’s favorite pooch of all time. Bunny did make it out to church and Sunday school, however. Dolores Obr returned home this week after spending two weeks in Rapid City having cataract surgery on her eyes. She had one eye done one week and the other the next. While in Rapid City, Dolores stayed

The event will be held at the community room of the Gateway Apartments at 2:00 p.m. that day.

Giving Our Loyalty to all Veterans
Men went to war for me, So I give my thanks to thee. They shot their guns and pulled their sword. Before that they prayed to the Lord.
How can I Show my Patriotism in my Community
Do you know how to show patriotism in your community? Every time I hear the Star Spangled Banner I stop, take off my hat, and respect the flag, but it takes a lot more work to show how much we care about our country and its veterans. The first thing I would do is start picking up trash around my community. Picking up trask can be a massive job. If you don’t pick up trash, your whole town will look like a junk yard and nobody is going to want to visit your cluttered, dirty city. When your town is spotlessly clean, tourists, businessmen, and veterans are going to want to become part of it. The second thing I would do is thank those veterans who served their country or aggressively fought for all Americans. It doesn’t matter where you are, if you see a man or woman who has served our great country, thank them for what they have done. They leave their families to fight and put their lives at risk to keep our country safe. Finally, I would help people in need. I would go to the nursing home to see if anybody needs help reading the newspaper or writing a letter. In the summer I would help people mow lawns. During the winter, I would help scoop snow. Showing patriotism takes a lot of work. I can do it in my community, please join me and honor our country. Jarred Hicks 1st place Class I - Grade 3 & 4 - Essay
Men saw things they didn’t want to see. But maybe that was how God intended it to be. Men lost the beating of their heart, Some families had theirs broken apart. Men had friends they didn’t want to lose. They went home to tell their families the bad news. So I give my thanks to thee, To the men that died for me. Eve Patterson 1st place Class II - Grade 4 - Poem
Thankful is what we should be Past and present Veterans have courageously fought for me Every bloody footstep they did take Will not be a tragic mistake Veterans we give our undying trust They disappear into the everlasting dust Countless families have lost Veterans paying the ultimate cost Veterans we do fondly adore While they have fearlessly fought in tremendous wars We tenderly treat them like royalty Respect all Veterans and give them your eternal loyalty Kaylee Eisenbraun 1st place Class III - Grade 5 - Poem
Giving Our Loyalty to all Veterans
How can I Show my Patriotism in my Community
To show patriotism means to show respect to the flag and the veterans of the U.S.A. The veterans have fought for people’s lives and their country. Thank them for the freedoms we have. Past veterans have saved our country from Iraq, Great Britain, and Spanish soldiers. The U.S.A. has been though a lot. Most people ask, “Why should they save us, we are a free country?” We weren’t always a free country. Patriots like Paul Revere saved us by doing something most people wouldn’t do like ring the bell to warn of the enemy soldiers approaching. Who would be brave enough to lead soldiers against a regular army of British soldiers? General George Washington led the men into war and helped them fight against the British. To show respect to the veterans is to show them that you care. In your community when you see a veteran needing help (if they are retired), you stop what you are doing and go help. Show respect to veterans in your area and don’t ignore them. The thing to do is to help veterans mow their lawns or help them walk around to other destinations. If you see a veterans struggling with groceries, just stop what you are doing and go help them carry the groceries. Veterans aren’t just people, they are our brave Saviors. Some veterans tragically lost their lives and other made it out barely alive. Do your part in your community, show them the respect they deserve and help them whenever you can. Jacob Young 1st place Class II - Grade 5 & 6 - Essay
Celebrating Arbor Day … This group of fourth and fifth graders were honored for their entries in the Arbor Day awards program in the Great Hall on Wednesday, April 25.

The poster contest, open to all fifth grade students, was won by Lincoln Hagedorn. This year’s theme was “Trees are Terrific … from Acorn to Oak.” Others entering the contest were Kianna Badure, Marcella Baldwin, Alyssa Civitak, Kaylee Eisenbraun, Marcus Herber, Katy O’Daniel, Savannah Solon and Anna Stone. In the essay contest, which was open to all fifth and sixth graders, Katy O’Daniel won at the local level. In the state contest she took third place. The theme was centered around the importance of Arbor Day and the importance of trees. In addition to her Bur Oak tree she was presented with a plaque and a check in the amount of $50. Others in the essay contest were Kianna Badure, Marcella Baldwin, Kaylee Eisenbraun, Lincoln Hagedorn, Emily Rosebud, Savannah Solon and Anna Stone. Those writing essays received a treat card certificate from McDonald’s and a pack of two Honey Locust seeds to start their own trees. The contests were sponsored by South Dakota Conservation Districts.
Always be loyal to our veterans as they give it to use. Show them we care. They are the ones who fought for us and for our country. Show loyalty to our veterans. Show trust-worthiness and people will trust us more. Show trust-worthiness by helping people. Help clean up the community. Help rake an elderly person’s yard for them. Respect our veterans and they will respect you the same way. I respect my veterans, so I will get the same respect back. Be nice. Be generous. Help our veterans. Tory Lurz Class V - poem

Hermann reported that the Title I School Improvement Plan has been completed and submitted. The Dakota Step testing is near completion. We are still waiting to see if the State’s AYP waiver has been approved by the U.S. Department of Education. The Indian Education grant application is in process with part II of the application. A small increase in this funding is projected and will be used to include video surveillance on two buses and to possibly assist with seconds lunch charges. We are working on next year’s budget. Impact Aid is an important part of the district’s finances and if the district qualifies for heavily impacted status it would mean a large increase in that funding. There are several criteria for heavily impacted status one of which is local taxing effort with comparable districts in the state. General fund, special education and pension funds are included in the computation. Although most districts levy for pension fund (which is used for retirement costs), Kadoka has not had that levy. The 2012-2013 budget proposal will include the thirty cents per thousand levy for the pension fund. The capitol outlay request amount will be reduced by the amount of the pension levy. PRINCIPALS’ REPORTS: Mr. Jensen reported that staff evaluations and budget requisitions for the elementary have been completed. South Dakota Assessment portal training was attended. He said that Dakota Step testing will begin on April 2 and that the Badlands Artist in Residence will be doing a project at the Interior School. Mr. Jensen reviewed scheduled end of year activities. He also reported that Mr. Shuck has been providing music instruction at the Interior and Long Valley Schools one day per week. Teachers are being encouraged to attend the RtI conference and state sponsored Common Core Training will be available for professional development. Ken Lensegrav expressed appreciation for the music instruction being provided at the outlying schools. Mr. Hagedorn reported that there have been two track meets and the concessions are going well. He reviewed scheduled events including the Tri County Awareness event to be held in Wall and Youth Range Days for all seventh graders in the district. The student handbook is being reviewed and will be presented for first reading at the May meeting. Work on next year’s class schedule is also being done in readiness for pre-registration. BOARD COMMITTEE REPORTS: Buildings and grounds: Mr. Hermann reported that the project manual for the interior portion of the great hall project has been received from the architect. He asked if mandatory site visits for contractors should be included in the bid notice. Negotiations Committee: Mark DeVries reported that negotiations with certified staff have been completed. The committee also met with the support staff. Policy Committee: Mr. Herman reported that the policy committee met. The corporal punishment section of the handbook was reviewed. First reading of a new policy was presented. The policy will be included under the Board of Education section of the handbook and will be item c) stating: In the event that a board member(s) must recuse themselves from voting due to conflict of interest, board action may be taken by the majority of the remaining members. Audit Review: Dawn Rasmussen reported on the audit review meeting with auditor for recently completed audit.

Radioactive contaminants, which can be naturally-occurring or be the result of oil and gas production and mining activities. In order to ensure that tap water is safe to drink, EPA prescribes regulations which limit the amount of certain contaminants in water provided by public water systems. FDA regulations establish limits for contaminants in bottled water which must provide the same protection for public health. Drinking water, including bottled water, may reasonably be expected to contain at least small amounts of some contaminants. The presence of contaminants does not necessarily indicate that water poses a health risk. More information about contaminants and potential health effects can be obtained by calling the Environmental Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). Some people may be more vulnerable to contaminants in drinking water than the general population. Immuno-compromised persons such as persons with cancer undergoing chemotherapy, persons who have undergone organ transplants, people with HIV/AIDS or other immune system disorders, some elderly, and infants can be particularly at risk from infections. These people should seek advice about drinking water from their health care providers. EPA/CDC guidelines on appropriate means to lessen the risk of infection by Cryptosporidium and other microbial contaminants can be obtained by calling the Environment Protection Agency’s Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). If present, elevated levels of lead can cause serious health problems, especially for pregnant women and young children. Lead in drinking water is primarily from materials and components associated with service lines and home plumbing. The City of Kadoka public water supply system is responsible for providing high quality drinking water, but cannot control the variety of materials used in plumbing components. When your water has been sitting for several hours, you can minimize the potential for lead exposure by flushing your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using water for drinking or cooking. If you are concerned about lead in your water, you may wish to have your water tested. Information on lead in drinking water, testing methods, and steps you can take to minimize exposure is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline or at http://www.epa.gov/safewater/lead. DECTED CONTAMINANTS The attached table lists all the drinking water contaminants that we detected during the 2011 calendar year. The presence of these contaminants in the water does not necessarily indicate that the water poses a health risk. Unless otherwise noted, the data presented in this table is from testing done January 1 – December 31, 2011. The state requires us to monitor for certain contaminants less than once per year because the concentrations of these contaminants are not expected to vary significantly from year to year. Some of the data, though representative of the water quality, is more than one year old. Infants and young children are typically more vulnerable to lead in drinking water than the general population. It is possible that lead levels at your home may be higher than at other homes in the community as a result of materials used in your home's plumbing. If you are concerned about elevated lead levels in your home's water, you may wish to have your water tested and flush your tap for 30 seconds to 2 minutes before using tap water. Additional information is available from the Safe Drinking Water Hotline (800-426-4791). [Published May 3, 2012, at the total approximate cost of $64.98]

It’s your tap water! EPA ID: 0181 COPIES AVAILABLE AT THE CITY OFFICE Water Quality Last year, the City of Kadoka monitored your drinking water for possible contaminants. This brochure is a snapshot of the quality of the water that we provided last year. Included are details about where your water comes from, what it contains, and how it compares to Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and state standards. We are committed to providing you with information because informed customers are our best allies. WATER SOURCE We serve more than 654 customers an average of 97,000 gallons of water per day. Our water is surface water that we purchase from another water system. The state has performed an assessment of our source water and they have determined that the relative susceptibility rating for the Kadoka public water supply system is low. For more information about your water and information on opportunities to participate in public meetings, call (605)8372200 and ask for Patty Ulmen. ADDITIONAL INFORMATION The sources of drinking water (both tap water and bottled water) include rivers, lakes, streams, ponds, reservoirs, springs, and wells. As water travels over the surface of the land or through the ground, it dissolves naturally-occurring minerals, and can pick up substances resulting from the presence of animals or from human activity. Contaminants that may be present in source water include: Microbial contaminants, such as viruses and bacteria, which may come from sewage treatment plants, septic systems, agricultural livestock operations, and wildlife. Inorganic contaminants, such as salts and metals, which can be naturally-occurring or result from urban stormwater runoff, industrial or domestic wastewater discharges, oil and gas production, mining, or farming. Pesticides and herbicides, which may come from a variety of sources such as agriculture, urban stormwater runoff, and residential uses. Organic chemical contaminants, including synthetic and volatile organic chemicals, which are by-products of industrial processes and petroleum production, and can also come from gas stations, urban stormwater runoff, and septic systems.

Foliar Fungicides for Wheat Foliar fungicides are typically applied at three different times to wheat; tillering, flag leaf and flowering, and the final two stages are rapidly approaching in many South Dakota fields. The recommended indicators for making foliar fungicide applications at the flag leaf stage are; diseases (typically tanspot and/or septoria leaf blotch) appearing on flag minus 1 and/or flag minus 2 (the two leaves directly below the flag leaf), the variety is susceptible (rust and other leaf spotting diseases), and there is good yield potential (45 Bu/A or more). Other factors which may favor a fungicide application are; rust reports building in states to the south, wet weather in the forecast, market price for wheat, and the cost of fungicide applications. Warm temperatures can cause stripe rust to shut down and may make fungicide applications unnecessary if that is the primary disease of concern. Avoid application of strobilurin fungicides after the emergence of awns as they can raise the DON levels should the crop become infected with scab (Fusarium Head Blight (FHB)). As of April 26, the USDA Cereal Disease Laboratory reported leaf rust as far north as south-central Kansas in fields, and northeast Kansas in nurseries. Stripe rust has been found throughout southeast Nebraska. The primary target for fungicide applications made at flowering is scab or FHB. Timing is very important and applications should be made at the onset of flowering in the heads of the main stems. Such applications will also provide protection from late season rust infections. Use the wheat scab risk assessment tool to make fungicide application decisions: http://www.wheatscab.psu.edu/ris kTool_2011.html.

South Dakota GFP Commission finalizes elk seasons
The South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Commission has voted to reduce the number of "antlerless elk" tags available to hunters. The Black Hills Firearms Elk Season will have 570 total tags available, with 175 being antlerless. The Black Hills Archery Elk Season will have 97 total tags available, with 15 antlerless. Custer State Park will have four resident "any elk" tags available, and the Late Archery Season in the park will be closed for 2012. The commission reduced the proposed number of antlerless tags after considering public input at a meeting in Rapid City. While the elk population is low in some parts of the Black Hills, the Department of Game, Fish and Parks is still receiving depredation complaints from landowners in the Hills where the elk population is still good. The commission also set the 2012 Prairie Elk Season. The season will offer 47 "any elk" and 53 "antlerless elk" licenses, compared to 49 "any elk" and 79 "antlerless elk" licenses in 2011. A new Prairie Elk Unit was added in the portion of Fall River County, south of the Cheyenne River and west of Highway 385. That unit, 27A, will have a season from Sept 1 – Oct 31. Unit 09A, which includes portions of Butte and Lawrence County, will now have a split season for elk. The new season dates are Sept 15 – Oct 31 and Dec 1- 15. Unit 30A, which includes portions of Gregory and Boyd County, Nebraska, will have a split season running from Sept 29- Oct 28 and Dec. 1- 31 to coincide with the changes made by Nebraska for that shared elk unit. In other commission action, the Custer State Park Deer Season was finalized with 10 "any whitetail" and two "any deer" tags available. The Bighorn Sheep Hunting season will have two "any bighorn sheep" licenses available, a reduction of one tag from 2011.

The Power of Protein Protein is one of the MyPlate food groups, in addition to grains, vegetables, fruits, and dairy. Protein is primarily used in the body for muscle, bone, skin, hair and many other tissues. Next to water, protein is the most plentiful substance in your body. Unlike fat and carbohydrates, the body does not generally store protein therefore it is essential in the diet. A complete protein contains all eight essential amino acids. Amino acids serve as the building blocks of protein. An incomplete protein is missing one or more of the essential amino acids. Complete proteins often come from animal sources such as beef, poultry, fish, and eggs. Incomplete proteins usually include fruits, vegetables, grains, and nuts. The average adult needs to consume about 2,000 calories a day. According to www.choosemyplate.gov the average person needs 5-1/2 ounces of protein foods daily. One ounce of protein foods is equal to 1 egg or 1/3 cup egg substitute; 1 Table-
spoon of peanut butter; 1/4 cup of cooked dry beans; 1/2 ounce of nuts or seeds; or 1 ounce fish, poultry or meat. Look at the Nutrition Facts Food Label to tell how much protein is in a serving of a packaged food. Some types of protein foods are higher in fat or contain saturated fat which is bad for your heart if you eat them in large amounts. When you choose animal protein foods, choose those that are lower in fat like lean meat and low-fat or non-fat milk. Choose lean cuts of meat and consume in moderation. Consider alternating lean red and white meats. Soy protein is another source of protein that has health benefits including the reduction of cholesterol levels. Research is ongoing to study soy protein’s long-term effects on human health. Build a healthy plate by going lean with protein, make half your plate fruits and vegetables, make half your grains whole, and drink water instead of sugary drinks. Enjoy your food, but eat less!

Ag CEO program to be held in Philip
SDSU Extension hosts a fourweek course focused on strategic planning, financial statements and production topics as part of the Ag CEO program.

General topics will include: •Ranch/Farm vision •Resource inventory (Family, Land, Crops & Livestock) •Production topics (personalized to each group) •Financial records/budgets The Ag CEO program is open to any crop or livestock producer. The program dates are May 17, 24, 31 and June 7. This program qualifies as FSA Borrower Training with an additional session on June 14. It will be held at Bad River Senior Citizens Center from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. The meal is provided. Registration cost is $250 per operation for Ag CEO only and $350 to include FSA Borrower Training. A $100 refund is given when the class is successfully completed. To register, contact Paulette Morse at 605394-1722. To learn more about the Ag CEO program, visit iGrow.org or call your nearest SDSU Regional Extension Center.

Bull nutrition will impact semen production
While breeding season may still be a ways off, bull nutrition now can have an impact on semen production, says Adele Harty, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist. "It's critical that we have nutrition where we need it to be, well in advance of breeding season," Harty said during a recent iGrow Radio Network interview. She says cattlemen should strive for a body condition of 6 as most bulls will lose about 100 pounds during the breeding season. So what does a body score of 6 look like? "They are going to have some spongy fat over their ribs, hooks and pins, and you'll be able to see some of the shoulder muscle movement, and they'll have fat deposits in their brisket," she said. To get there, many bulls may need a higher plain of nutrition than simply hay - with higher energy and protein requirements based on the age of the bull. Harty says many purchased bulls may carry plenty of condition, and she encourages slowly bringing them down to a maintenance diet combined with increased exercise. "If you can turn them into a pasture or a bigger area where they can exercise, it will help them stay sound longer and actually have better libido during the breeding season," Harty said. For more information on this topic, visit iGrow.org. The iGrow Radio Network and SDSU Extension bring listeners an informative show each day.

Specialist says breed heifers two to four weeks before cows
Even though calving season is not yet done for most producers, it's not too soon to begin planning for breeding of open heifers, says George Perry, South Dakota State University associate professor and SDSU Extension Beef Reproduction Specialist during a recent iGrow Radio Network interview. Perry says it's a good idea to breed heifers to calve two to four weeks ahead of the main cow herd, to give the heifers' time to recover before cycling back for the second breeding season. "We really need to think about getting heifers bred, before we finish calving or think about breeding our cows," Perry said. He says there are several estrus synchronization programs to help get the heifers bred in a timely manner. He lists the three main estrus synchronization programs recommended for beef heifers including; simple estrus detection, estrus detection with timed AI and fixed-timed AI protocols. Perry says producers can locate an Online estrus planner by visiting http://igrow.org/livestock/beef/ and clicking on 'Links' under the Resource Library. Perry encourages livestock growers to choose a protocol that fits their time, facilities and experience. "By using any of these protocols you can better manage your time in that you know you want to detect estrus for this three to five day period or you're going to go out and do a fixed-time AI on them," Perry said. "Synchronization really becomes a management tool that benefits you in managing your labor also." For more information on this topic, visit iGrow.org.
