Through Airmen's Eyes: 'Junkyard mechanic' brings quick thinking, resourcefulness to missions
tomed to finding things that could later be used to fix something, anything. He would find things that weren't working and make them work or intentionally take them apart, just to see if he could fix them. "Today's society is more about buying things and throwing them away once they're done with them or they no longer work," Hitzel said. The idea that one man's junk is another man's treasure rings true for Hitzel today, just as it did when he was a young boy. One of his earliest memories of resourcefulness was finding bicycles in a junkyard and sitting down with his father to make them work again. "The tires were bent, so my dad straightened out the rims," he said. "I'll never forget that we put them together and made them work. It kind of started from there." Although Hitzel doesn't have a junkyard here, his co-workers attest to the fact that he still goes on treasure hunts in his free time. If he isn't actively seeking out parts and pieces that others have thrown out, he can be found working on a generator or a vehicle -- at all hours, usually with a headlamp on, grease on his face and dirt in his blonde hair. "I've come out at 2 a.m. and seen him knee deep in a generator," said Hitzel's supervisor and battalion maintenance officer. "I have to tell him to go to sleep so he doesn't work himself to death." If it isn't the mission he's working to keep running smoothly, it is morale. One of the remote sites had problematic water pumps. This meant no showers in an area where hot running water and hot food were arguably the highlights of the day for the special forces and support service members there. With some innovative thinking and a few spare parts, Hitzel made it happen. "He went in there and took it upon himself to make sure the quality of the life at the camp was better for everyone," Hitzel's supervisor said. From junkyard bicycles to million-dollar military vehicles, Hitzel employs the hunger to tinker with and fix things whether it is during his duty day or after hours. "Hitzel is highly motivated and a good team member who has extensive mechanical skills," his supervisor said. "Anything that clicks and ticks, he's put a wrench to it." Staff Sgt. Marleah Miller Staff Sgt. Hitzel is a graduated of Kadoka Staff Sgt.

Reprinted with permission. The team was to build checkpoints in desolate areas of the region to aid in isolating insurgent strongholds. By Master Sgt. Leisa Grant, "I was going to be on standby and if anything happened, they U.S. Air Forces Central would fly me out if needed," said Staff Sgt. Ryton Hitzel, a vehicle Command Public Affairs mechanic assigned to a special forces maintenance battalion. His crew knew the likeliness of roadside bombs and enemy contact was high. The distance was about half a day's drive and the terrain was unforgiving. Everything had gone well, at first. The first checkpoint was successfully constructed, so they moved toward the second site. Then, it happened -- significant mechanic failure. After coming around a cliff face, the right front upper-control arm ball joint came out of its socket on an RG-33 Mine-Resistant Ambush Protected vehicle, causing the tire to become twisted. A decision had to be made quickly. The vehicle, crucial to the mission, would either have to be blown up where it stood, or fixed. "Ninety-nine out of 100 mechanics would say it couldn't be fixed," said the Army major in command of the entire operation. The only Airman on the convoy did not surrender to the idea of giving up the MRAP so quickly. As he had already done many times during the deployment, Hitzel came up with a solution that would save the military about $1.5 million. More importantly, if it worked, it would prevent another team from having to come and dispose of the vehicle, or take it apart piece by piece for shipment. "Two ratchet straps and a chain," Hitzel later told the ground force commander when asked what he used to temporarily rig the vehicle to move it to a safer location for repair. With the help of a driver, Hitzel used a bottle jack, two ratchet straps and a chain to essentially winch to another vehicle and put the ball joint back in its socket. But, this would only be enough to move it to the closest site. Once at the site, Hitzel's work was not done. The RG33 still needed extensive maintenance. Hitzel put together a list of parts and tools necessary to do the repair and 16 hours later, they were air dropped. Within a day, the vehicle was back up and fully mission capable; Hitzel saw opportunity where others may have seen disaster. "What sets Staff Sergeant Hitzel apart from others, is what every commander wants," the major said. "He can get me to 'yes' because he is a professional problem solver and a natural leader." Hitzel said his upbringing could be credited with his resourceful approach to problems. Staff Sgt. Marleah Miller "My family didn't have a lot of money growing up, so we were really resourceful, kind of like the Afghans Staff Sgt.

Superintendent Jamie Herman gave a brief overview of the NAFIS conference that he and Christensen attended in Washington, D.C. He stated that the funding for federal programs has already been set this year, but depending on what happens with the government, it could affect the funding this year for impact aid, title and special education. Herman, Lensegrav, and VanderMay met with Jackson County Commissioners Larry Denke and Glen Bennett to discuss the transfer of the libraries at the Long Valley and Interior Schools. They are now seeking a few parents and teachers to assist with going through the books and then transfering the libraries to the school. There was a mechanical issue with Interior bus, but has it has now been repaired and is running good. There also was no school at Interior one day due to problems with the boiler system, but has since been repaired. A loss report was received from the insurance company for the damage to the vehicles from the hail. All nine vehicles were totaled and the school plans to buy back eight of them and do the necessary repairs to make them safe to drive. District wide enrollment total is approximately 362 students. This highest in the last five years. Elementary Principal Jeff Nemecek stated that meetings are being held to review the choices available for a new math curriculum that would be implemented next school year. Secondary Principal George Seiler stated that in order to continue with eighth graders taking the high school algebra class and receiving credit for it, a five year waiver must be submitted to the South Dakota Dept. of Ed. Several eighth grade students have taking the class early and been very successful. A math night will be held on Tuesday, October 15 and continuing this option will be discussed that evening with parents. The next board meeting will be held on Thursday, November 14 in Midland.

From the U.S. Senate | Senator John Thune
wondering how to get by, a dear uncle and aunt remembered me generously in their will. That money also came at a time when it was badly needed. As you can see, God can provide for us in many ways if we just trust him and wait for him to act. As I have said before and again recently, “God will provide.” As far as changes go in my life, I am no longer exactly a young thing. I’m not completely ancient either, but the bloom of youth has somewhat worn off. Since I am not fond of change, I tend to resist altering what I do and how I go about it. God may be telling me the time has come to make some changes. If that is his purpose, he will no doubt make it clearer as time goes along. So, for now it’s kind of a waiting game. We need to wait a bit, see how things go, and figure out what we need to do next. Meanwhile, to keep myself from fretting and getting into a fuss, I will try to constantly remember another favorite verse of mine which says, “Worry about nothing. Pray about everything.” That works for me, and I hope it will for you too if your life is not exactly running smoothly at the moment. God does love us, he takes care of us, and he will provide what we need. Count on it. David writes in Psalm 27:14, “Wait patiently for the Lord. Be strong and courageous. Yes, wait patiently for the Lord.” That is excellent advice. Blessed be the name of the Lord.
Lookin’ Around | Syd Iwan
Blessed Be the Name
What do you do when an early October blizzard kills 54 of your calves and 14 of your cows as it did to us last week? Do you pound your chest and wail? Do you slam doors and kick dogs? Do you sink into a deep dark depression? Well no. Those things don’t do much good. What you do is say with Job, “The Lord gives, and the Lord takes away. Blessed be the name of the Lord.” Then you go on from there, figuring out what to do next. First you have to get over the shock of it all. Who expects a blizzard that early, and why did it kill so many cattle in the area? The why is explained somewhat by the cattle not having yet grown their winter coats and not being used to cold weather. It has just barely frozen so far this fall. Then there were inches of cold rain followed by strong wind and some snow. The temperature wasn’t all that severe since it was barely at the freezing point, but the wet and wind, combined with short hair, were enough to chill livestock beyond bearing. Then, too, the cattle weren’t yet in their winter pastures. Our ranch has pretty good protection all over since part of it is in river breaks and part along a deep creek. It is not like our critters are usually on a big flat plain with no protection in sight. We have lucked out many times in past years just because of our rugged terrain. It probably helped some this time around as well, but it didn’t keep us from losses. If we’d had our cows and calves in winter quarters, they might have been able to avoid more of the wind, but there is no guarantee that would have done the trick either. So what next? First off, one has to say that God allowed us to suffer this loss. He might not have caused it, but he certainly allowed it. Since I harbor no doubts about God’s love for me, that means there was a purpose behind how the whole affair worked itself out. Two or three things come to mind. Certainly, God wants me to learn to trust him in every situation, and I try to do that. I might be just getting another lesson. Secondly, he may be planning to provide for our needs in an unexpected way. Thirdly, it is possible he is leading me towards some changes that I might not even know I need, but he does. Whatever his purposes, I trust him completely and will try to follow his leading. With the idea of providing what we need in an unexpected way, that has happened many times in the past. I recall one year when cattle prices were down, crops were almost non-existent, and cash was running out. Low and behold, an oil company came by and wanted to lease our land for oil exploration. They never found any oil that I know of, but their lease payments were certainly put to very good use. Another time when I was scratching my head
West River Resilience
Having grown up in Murdo, I am no stranger to the independent and resilient nature of our friends and neighbors living in western South Dakota. And when times are tough or tragedies occur they are the first ones on the scene ready to help those in need. The first weekend in October, part of western South Dakota endured the wrath of a vicious prairie snowstorm. The storm covered fences, scattered and killed livestock, and endangered the existence of many west river ranchers by destroying their cattle, sheep, horses, and potentially their livelihoods. Soon after the blizzard conditions diminished in western South Dakota, I began hearing about the catastrophic and heart-rending livestock losses in the wake of that unexpected early season snowstorm. Once again, the resilience of South Dakotans has been severely tested by Mother Nature. While ranchers began digging out and locating and disposing of their livestock, I started taking steps to provide our ranchers with
assistance by immediately getting in touch with the Speaker of the House of Representatives, John Boehner, requesting that he appoint Farm Bill conferees as quickly as possible to ensure that work be completed on the Farm Bill. Both the House and Senatepassed Farm Bills contain reauthorization and funding for livestock disaster programs, which I helped author, including the Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP), and could potentially pay 65-75 percent of the value of lost livestock, as determined by the Secretary of Agriculture. I also sent a letter to the Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, urging him to immediately designate county Farm Service Agency (FSA) employees who work in service centers in storm-impacted counties in South Dakota as essential. All FSA state and county office employees were sent home by the Obama Administration during the partial government shutdown. These employees are needed to provide assistance to producers and to assist county emergency boards in conducting
damage assessments needed for determining eligibility for low-interest emergency loans. Because federal offices are closed and the USDA website has been shut down, I am providing a link with additional disaster information on my website: http://www.thune.senate.gov/ Despite the partial government shutdown, I also felt it was important to assess first-hand the livestock loss and damage resulting from the early snowstorm. I spent Thursday, October 10th, meeting with Black Hills Power about the restoration efforts, touring areas of Rapid City heavily impacted by the snowstorm, and took an aerial tour of western South Dakota ranches to survey livestock loss with Governor Dennis Daugaard. I encourage all South Dakotans to join me in keeping our neighbors in western South Dakota in our thoughts and prayers. I will continue to work with my colleagues in Washington to open our FSA offices in storm-impacted counties and pass a five-year Farm Bill to provide relief to our west river neighbors.

A Helping Hand To Our Friends And Neighbors
In South Dakota, we pride ourselves on our hard work, persistence and self-reliance. Our ancestors tamed the prairie and lived through difficult times, and these South Dakota values have been passed down through the generations. We also learn in South Dakota to care for our neighbors. Whether it’s a natural disaster or a personal tragedy, South Dakotans always come together to lend a helping hand to those in need. We learn that early in our lives. It becomes so ingrained in us that when we are needed, we simply show up. That’s just part of being a neighbor, and in tough times, South Dakota is one big neighborhood. This is a very tough time in western South Dakota. Our friends and neighbors there continue to respond to the recent disaster, during which much of West River was hit with one of the largest blizzards in our history. Homeowners lost trees, experienced property damage and went without power for days. Businesses suffered from collapsed roofs or other damage that will require repairs before they can reopen. Many ranchers suffered devastating losses. The early winter weather created a “perfect storm” that killed thousands – probably tens of thousands – of cattle and other livestock. These animals mean something more than just net worth, and losing them has put our ranchers in an unthinkable position. We need to do what we can to help our friends and neighbors during their time of need. If you are able to help those affected by the blizzard, please call 211 or 877-708-4357 to offer your assistance. In addition, a Rancher Relief Fund has been set up to help our livestock producers. The fund is a cooperative effort of the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association, the Stockgrowers Association, the Sheep Growers Association and the Black Hills Area Community Foundation. Linda and I made a donation earlier this week, and I hope you will consider a gift as well. To donate to the Rancher Relief Fund, visit www.giveblackhills.org and search "Rancher Relief Fund." Donors can also mail checks to Rancher Relief Fund, PO Box 231, Rapid City, S.D. 57709.
Practical Money Matters | Jason Alderman, Financial Education Advisor
Reevaluate Your Benefits Needs During Open Enrollment
If you're among the 170 million Americans who receive health insurance through an employer-provided plan, you'll probably receive your 2014 open enrollment materials shortly. Although it's a pain to wade through all that information, simply opting for your current coverage could be a costly mistake. Here's why: Health insurance has undergone major changes since the 2010 Affordable Care Act was passed, including the elimination of annual and lifetime coverage limits and preexisting conditions exclusions, expanded free preventive care and allowing children up to age 26 to remain on parents' plans. In response, many employers have altered their benefit plans. Plus, if your family or income situations have changed since last year, your current plans may no longer be the best match. And, if your employer offers flexible spending accounts and you're not participating, you're leaving a valuable tax break on the table. Here's what to look for when reviewing your benefit options: Carefully compare all costs and features of the different plans offered and note how your existing coverage may be changing next year. Common changes include: •Dropped or replaced medical plans. Increased monthly premiums, deductibles and copayment amounts. •Revised drug formularies. •Favored doctors or hospitals withdrawing from a plan's preferred provider network. •Changes to the number of allowed visits for specialty care (acupuncture, chiropractic, physical therapy, etc.) If offered, healthcare and dependent care flexible spending accounts (FSAs) can significantly offset the financial impact of medical and dependent care by letting you pay for eligible out-of-pocket expenses on a pre-tax basis; that is, before federal, state and Social Security taxes are deducted from your paycheck. This reduces your taxable income and therefore, your taxes. You can use a healthcare FSA to pay for IRS-allowed medical expenses not covered by your medical, dental or vision plans. Check IRS Publication 502 for allowable expenses. Dependent care FSAs let you use pre-tax dollars to pay for eligible expenses related to care for your child, spouse, parent or other dependent incapable of self-care. Here's how FSAs work: Say you earn $42,000 a year. If you contribute $1,000 to a health care FSA and $3,000 for dependent care, your taxable income would be reduced to $38,000. Your resulting net income, after taxes, would be roughly $1,600 more than if you had paid for those expenses on an after-tax basis. Remember these FSA restrictions: Employee contributions are limited to $2,500 a year for health care FSAs and $5,000 for dependent care. Health care and dependent care contributions are not interchangeable. Estimate planned expenses carefully because you must forfeit unused account balances. Some employers offer a grace period of up to 2 ½ months after the end of the plan year to incur expenses, but that's not mandatory, so check your company's policy. Outside of open enrollment, you can only make mid-year FSA changes after a major life or family status change (marriage, divorce, death of a spouse, birth or adoption, etc.) If one occurs midyear, re-jigger your FSAs accordingly for maximum savings. You must re-enroll in FSAs each year – amounts don't carry over from year to year. Compare your employer's plans alongside those offered by your spouse's employer, particularly when deciding where to insure your children. Also remember that if you marry, divorce, or gain or lose dependents, it could impact the type – and cost – of your coverage options. It's worth spending a few minutes to review your benefit coverage options for next year, especially when you consider the potential financial consequences.to do your due diligence.
The Prairie Doc Perspective | Dr. Richard P. Holm M.D.
An example of grace
While I was in college, and at a pre-med club meeting, plans were made to invite a speaker to tell us what’s required for getting into medical school. Guess who volunteered to find the expert? After calling the medical school, I was connected to Dr. Karl Wegner because he was one willing to do such a thing. I must say, I have never before or since met a more gracious man, and that evening he presented to our little premed group the details of applying to medical school with a helpful and thoughtful way. It was there I heard for the first time one of the great lecturers of my lifetime experience. A few years later after acceptance into medical school, I was one of a group of innocent, emptyheaded, sophomore students trying to absorb everything about pathology from Dr. Wegner and his wondrous crew of physician teachers. Up to that class, we had learned about normal healthy anatomy and physiology, but it was in pathology we learned about the cause for each and every illness; basically what can go wrong in the human body. At the time, Karl Wegner was the chair of the department of Pathology, and later became the dean of the school, serving during the tough transition time when our med school moved from a firsttwo-year program to a full fouryear M.D. degree-granting school. There was some heavy lifting during that time, and the people of the State of South Dakota owe a great deal to Dr. Wegner, and other grand leaders who had the foresight to get that done. But he did it with his usual graciousness. Grace is a word that reflects not only elegance in movement, but also in kindness, politeness, and goodwill shown for others. Each of you certainly can name a few teachers that made a difference in your life. Perhaps it was one or both parents who gave you a sense of worth and of the value of honesty; or a third grade teacher who showed you how “you can do it” and how to help others; or a high school teacher who taught you toughness and not to give up; or a college professor who helped you achieve a creative and academic challenge. Dr. Karl Wegner was, and still is, a teacher who has made a big difference in my life, and many lives, teaching not only what can go wrong with the human body, but also how to face difficulty with grace.

“If God sends us on strong paths, we are provided with strong shoes.” Corrie Ten Boom Marvin Starkjohann is recuperating in the hospital in Sioux Falls after having a pace maker installed. Another patient in the hospital in Sioux Falls is Doris Vos. The wicked wind on October 11 caught the door and caused her to take a nasty fall, and now she is having her hip and elbow repaired. Tuesday the 8th Susan Taft was in Mission for the White River girls’ volleyball game with the Falcons. Thursday Dan and Susan did some business in Winner. Friday evening Susan and Morgan attended the Fall Concert in White River. Saturday Dan, Heather and Morgan were among those helping work cattle at Kary’s. Monday with no school and the post office not open because of Columbus Day, Susan and Morgan headed for Pierre to keep a dental appointment for Morgan. September 22, Richard and Noreen Krogman visited Clarence in Winner. On the 24th, Richard was among those donating blood in White River at the Catholic Hall. The 27th found the two of them listening to the football game between the Tigers and the Coyotes on the radio. Sunday the 29th they attended church and the celebration of first communion for Joe Sayler, with the meal at the hall afterward. Thursday, October 3, they decided to get out of here before the storm arrived and headed for Mike and Kay Japp’s home in Nebraska. Glen Krogman arrived from Fargo on the 4th, and on the 5th they headed for Lincoln to attend the Nebraska and Illinois football game. Glen returned to North Dakota on the 6th, while Richard and Noreen stayed behind to help the twins, Grace and Grayden, celebrate their secoond birthday on the 7th. Part of the celebration was to go to the Wild West Safari in the morning of the 7th. Tuesday, the 8th, Richard and Noreen headed home and did not see any snow until they were south of Mission. They heard on their arrival that some of the Krogman cattle had been lost in the storm. Their gauge showed 2.30 inches of moisture. Wednesday, Noreen was on the road again, as she headed for the Riverview Club meeting at the home of Donna Stromer. The next big thing she is getting ready for is the Fall Festival to be held at the hall on the 19th. Rueben and Jan Ring were in White River Thursday for the middle school volleyball game between White River and Philip. Granddaughter Mikayla plays on the Philip team. Friday they kept appointments in Pierre. Marjorie Anne Letellier has been busy taking care of all that garden produce they gathered before the storm and as it is processed, there is gradually getting more room to move around on the porch again. Julie Letellier and LuAnn Beckwith visited Saturday and they enjoyed listening to the football game between Dordt College (where DJ Beckwith plays) and Trinity Bible College in Elllendale, ND. Clint Stout plays on that team. Ray and Gail Berry drove to Rapid City October 6, and had to wait for quite a while a time or two as I-90 was cleared. They went there to attend the wedding of Andrea Beckwith to Jared Thompson. This Andrea Beckwith is the daughter of Larry Beckwith, not the daughter of Paul and LuAnn Beckwith. It was to have been an outdoor wedding, but the storm put an end to that plan, and it was held indoors instead on Sunday evening. Brant and Ace Kary and family, with the help of Tafts and Ed Ferguson, brought their cattle in from the creek area and vaccinated them. They are missing only one cow and haven’t found her yet. Sunday, October 6, there were two semis tipped over and in the ditch on Highway 18. Howard Heinert was asked to bring his loader to help transfer the goods from the tipped semis to new trailers. Howard and Nette and the boys all helped, plus others who came along and some they recruited from Parmelee. Turned out to be a lengthy and cold job and they barely got it done before dark. Friday, October 11, Howard and Nette drove in another storm, this time it was a rain and wind storm as they traveled to Spearfish for the funeral of Stan Bahr. Not only was there heavy rain, but by Wall there was thick fog; after that the strong winds hit. September 29, Kenda Huber took Herbert Huber to Ft. Meade and stayed through the 30th, when Herbert had a complete knee put in. He returned home on October 8. Friday the 11th, Kenda took him to Martin for a check up. Rev. Glenn Denke was in Rapid City October 7-9 for the LCMS District Conference. He traveled as far as Wall on Sunday afternoon, and then headed on into Rapid City Monday morning. The conference was held at the Ramkota. Friday he was in Philip for a Denke family get-together, as his brother, Bill, was here from California. Brother Paul and family came from Pierre, and sisters Darlene and Joyce and families were there, too. They gathered at the Steakhouse in Philip. Tuesday Evan and Dorothy Bligh were in Pierre on business, and then continued on to Wessington Springs to visit Marjorie Bligh. Wednesday Maxine Allard rode along with Dorothy to Valentine. Maxine visited Jim Kruger and Dorothy (Lopez) Cook at Cherry Hills while Dorothy ran her errands. Thursday Ken Koistenen came and got rid of some branches on Maxine’s house and Evan Dorothy hauled them away. Alberta Allard came on October 2 before the storm hit to help Clifford while Pam was away helping her mother in Sioux Falls. Alberta left for Yankton Sunday, as Pam is planning on coming home this week. Bruce and Jessie Ring had a busy week. Last Monday Jessie and Nicole Huber went to a Head Start council meeting in Rosebud. Wednesday Jessie went to a meeting in Mission. It was also their week for cleaning at Long Valley School. Thursday evening was the quarterly voters’ meeting at St. John Lutheran Church for Bruce, and Saturday he drove to Spearfish for a men’s conference called “Awakening.” It lasted from nine in the morning until four in the afternoon. While Bruce was at that conference, Jessie took the children to see their mother and grandmother at St. Francis and that visit lasted until the evening. Sunday was the annual joint service for St. John and St. Peter and this year it was at St. Peter. After the service there was a potluck meal, and then the men met for the voters’ meeting upstairs while the women caught up on news and visiting downstairs. Those attending from St. John were Robert, Sharon and Torey Ring, Bill and Kenda Huber, Howard and Nette Heinert, Bruce and Jessie Ring and family, and June Ring. Thursday, October 3, Rae Staab arrived from Kansas, picked up her mother, Jean Kary, added June Ring to the car and headed for Rapid City. Jean kept her appointment with the eye doctor and then they went to the School of Mines to visit Rebekkah Kary and check out her dorm room. She was added to the mix in the car and went with the ladies while more errands were run. Soon it was time to check into the motel, and then head to the Hilton Garden Inn for the evening activities of the West River History Conference. It was just raining when they went back to the motel, but it was snowing by morning, and kept getting heavier, so the ladies packed up everything in the car again and made it back to the Hilton Inn for the conference. The morning sessions went fine, as there was still power. At the Awards Luncheon Friday noon, June and Jean were both surprised and happy to receive Honorable Mention Certificates for the papers they presented last year. The afternoon sessions just barely got started when the power went off, and the presenters had to make do with a flashlight to check their notes while giving their papers in the two rooms with no windows. Pavilion A had windows all along the south wall, so at least they had light in that room. By the way, there was a Cowboy Tour there with three bus loads of people from all over the United States who had flown into Rapid City for their tour of the Badlands, Wall Drug Store, Mount Rushmore, etc. and they had their tour cut short and were stranded there, too. They were very disappointed that Mount Rushmore Visitor Center was closed, and quite disgusted that when the bus stopped at a place where they could at least see the faces and got out to take pictures, they were told to get back on the bus. Since they couldn’t go anywhere, the tour manager paid the fees for the history conference, so they could attend the sessions if they wished, and many did and were glad that they had something to do. The hotel put together a meal of sorts for supper, and there were always coffee pots and hot water put out for making tea or hot chocolate. Candles and battery operated tea lites were placed along the long hallways for guidance. Kathy Chauncey had a training session on Thursday and had brought her mother, Susan Kary, along with her, as Susan nearly always attends the history conference. They fortunately had booked a room at the Hilton that was a suite, and they graciously let Rae, Jean and June stay with them, as well as the vice president of the conference, Bev Pechan. The hotel brought in a rollaway and extra blankets to help out. By Saturday morning it was quite cool in the hotel, and as well as everyone keeping their coats on, many were seen with blankets from the beds draped around them for extra warmth. The morning sessions were all held in Pavilion A, as there was daylight there. Jean and June were among the last ones to present their papers. The lunch provided that day was chili with tuna sandwiches. By Sunday a couple of the buses had gone to another hotel that supposedly had heat, but the third bus was stuck yet and couldn’t get out. The airport, however, was still closed down. A number of the history conference people were able to leave Sunday afternoon and Kathy, Rae and crew were considering it until a police report said it was still not too good by Wall, so it was back to the beds for one more night. The power finally came on about 10:30 p.m. Sunday night. Monday the all clear was given, and after running some errands in the parts of city that were cleared, Rae, Jean and June headed home. Rae stayed and visited for a day or two and headed back to her home in Mayetta, Kansas, on Wednesday. Congratulations to Rich Charging Hawk and the Red Leaf Fast Pitch Softball team. Last weekend they competed in the Chilly Memorial Native Fast Pitch Tournament in Farmington, New Mexico. This world famous team was awarded second place. Great job, guys for once again representing Norris. Cora Huber treated Ethan and a few of his friends to an overnight stay in Rapid City on Saturday, October 12 to celebrate his 16th birthday. Guest included Chris Eagle Bear, Gaton Hawk, Caleb Valburg and Xavier White Hat. Chris stayed there in order to attend a surprise birthday party held for Tavis Burbank the following day. Happy birthday, guys.

Tyrel Mansfield was baptized at the Belvidere Church on Sunday. He is the son of Aaron and Michelle Mansfield. Grandparents in attendance included Bill and Pauline Jones of Rapid City and Jim and Fayola Mansfield. Tyrel’s aunt, Alison, even came from Osage, WY. Bill and Pauline Jones said they lost a lot of tree branches in the recent blizzard in Rapid City and had some other damage. The snow, however, is melting very quickly in the warm temperatures we’ve been having. Alison said that she recently changed jobs from driving trucks to driving a school bus. As it happened, a position opened up with her son’s school for a bus driver, and she snapped that right up. It is the bus that normally takes her son to school so now she is saving money in not having to drive to school and is also making money at the same time. Chris Baldwin said his daughter, Chloe, is a football cheerleader this year at the Kadoka School. As a result, family members bundled up on Friday night and attended the football game. Chloe loves it and is having a good time doing it. Chris said he didn’t have a lot of damage from the recent blizzard, but some lids did fly off a few bee hives causing some death loss but not a lot. He hasn’t been able to check all his bees yet since some are down muddy roads and hard to get to. Last weekend, the Baldwins extracted some honey. This weekend, Chris has been moving bees here and there when possible. Betty Kusick was visited by both of her daughters this week. Kathy and Gary came from Hermosa. They brought and installed a new storm door. Loretta and Lawrence also came from Quinn and put plastic on the windows. Both gals worked hard while they were here and got Betty somewhat ready for winter. Joe Livermont came from over Wanblee way on the same day Kathy and Loretta were there. He stayed for one game of cribbage before going home. Jory Rodgers got in a lot of football on Saturday morning at a jamboree at Philip. Many teams were there such as from Wall, Murdo, Kadoka and other local places, and many games were played. This was a junior-high event. Jo Rodgers went to Wanblee on Friday to conduct hiring interviews for the post office. Other than that, she mostly worked at the Murdo post office which is her normal job site. They have been trying to get that post office ready for winter lately by dealing with floors, windows, etc. Martin Badure was on KOTA TV last week with Paula Vogelsang. They showed how to make milk-jug luminaries for Halloween. Apparently, you paint a pumpkin-type face on the milk jog and install a light. Martin and his mom, Dana, drove up with Paula and had a good time watching the TV broadcast which included the weather report and so on. Martin was quite taken with the whole business. His sister, Brisa, did something similar last year with Paula, but this year she stayed home and attended her thirdgrade class at Kadoka. Martin is in kindergarten in Kadoka, and his classmates got to see him on TV. Martin was entranced watching the news report including the weather and so on. He needed to stand on a milk crate to be high enough for the show but didn’t seem to mind or get too nervous. Afterwards everyone went out to the Golden Corral for dinner before coming home. At home, Dana has been repairing one whole side of her corral since the recent strong winds blew it down. Georgann Addison recently went to Florida, having gone there to help move her mom, Audrey Carley, to Audrey and Jerry’s normal winter quarters. The family rented a motor home to make the trip since Audrey isn’t in very good health, and she could be taken care of better in a motor home than in a car. Their destination was Clearwater which is near Tampa on the west coast of Florida. Georgann took various pictures of the gulf when they got there and posted them on Facebook. She is due back early this week. Mike and Marlene Perault had two of their daughters home this weekend. Coleen and Pat came from Brandon with their three kids. Laney also came with her four kids so there was a total of seven kids running around which made for a busy time. They all worked some cattle together and had quite a good time. Coleen and Laney also drove over to Philip while they were here and visited their grandma, Lillian Carlson, at the hospital. Lillian has been there quite a while now and is badly wanting to get back home. She ate well this weekend and seems to be quite a bit better. Rick and Ronda Dennis spent the weekend in Rapid City with Dana DeVries and her daughters with their children. They enjoyed visiting, playing cards and some shopping.

Jan and Larry Miller drove to Rifle, CO, on Thursday, October 3, where they attended the wedding of Logan Klima and Amber Baker on Saturday, the 5th. The trip to the wedding took 17 hours because of bad weather. Logan is the son of Ginger and the late Tim Klima. During the reception the Millers won a dance contest by being the last on the floor because of having been married 45 years. They returned home on Sunday driving in better weather. Bob Hopkins, his wife and two daughters came to South Dakota from Pahrump, NV, to attend a wedding in Spearfish which was to be held on October 5. Because of the snow storm, the wedding was postponed and no new date has been announced. They did get to Kadoka and visited briefly with his mom, Norma Hopkins, before returning to their Nevada home. Robyn and Tanner Jones, Kylie Brunson and Kelton, and Shane and Lisa Osburn went to Valentine, NE, on Wednesday evening to visit family. They went to see Robyn and Shane’s nephew, Devin Osburn, who is transfering to Washington, DC, with the Army. Lila Whidby, Lois Lurz of Hot Springs and Wanda Swan drove to Rapid City on Thursday where they visited Lola Hulce of Philip who was a patient in Rapid City Regional Hospital.

While in Rapid City the ladies also stopped to visit Marjorie Jeffords, a resident of There’s a Hart Assisted Living Center. Jim and Venessa Plaggemeyer, Mathew and Teresa and little Mathew went to the eastern part of the state where they visited Holly Plaggemeyer and Greg Hansen, who are students at South Dakota State University in Brookings. They also went to Flandreau where they spent the night on Saturday and celebrated an early birthday for Jim, whose birthday is October 28. They returned to Kadoka on Sunday. Word was received in Kadoka of the death of Lary Osburn, 76, of Philip on October 11 at the Philip hospital. Lary’s parents, the late Ethel and Paul Osburn, were former residents in Kadoka and ran a hardware store here before moving to Philip. Lary is survived by a brother, Jim, and his family of Rapid City. No services are scheduled, as to his request. Susan Davidson and Marlene Perault went to Rapid City on Thursday where they picked up Lisa Perault and all enjoyed the taping of a segment of The Price is Right. Jerry Springer was the emcee, in the absence of Drew Carey. The ladies said they enjoyed the taping but didn’t get to take part in the prize winning. Hank Kosters and Mitch Moor of Pierre were visitors in the Deb and Marv Moor home over the weekend. Mitch came on Friday, attended the football game and stayed the weekend; his grandfather, Hank, drove to Kadoka on Saturday and spent the day.

Gateway News | Lola Joyce Riggins, 837-2053 (Let it ring.)
While doing some of my walking, I was amazed at the pile of tree branches in some of the yards. May we give a friendly welcome to a new resident here in the apartments. No name but I understand that his son lives in town and has been encouraging his Dad to move here for sometime. Do you follow me? Next week hopefully I’ll get things straigthen out. Thank God there is always hope for the future. Thank you people for enjoying the news items. For those who don’t live around here, we had quite a bit of wind this week and it was so bitter the other day. I heard a strike of lightening about 1:30 a.m. Monday morning, then it opened up and starting raining. It has rained so much that water is standing all over. It has continued to rain softly the rest of the days that water puddles are plentiful around town. I accompanied Chris and Anita Riggins and Stanley, and Melissa Ammons to White River for the football game last week. Kadoka was ahead most of the game and won. I joined several other residents to enjoy Lois Pettyjohn who played the piano and most everyone joined in to sing. Thought: Honesty is the first chapter in the book of wisdom.

Due to the recent blizzard, producers need to verify their inventory, and verify their losses and where those losses took place if they can. Producers should take pictures (with a date), write down lost cattle’s ID tag number if possible, and get a head count. Losses should be documented as soon as possible after it occurs. The more information you have, the better. You also need to have a 3rd party verify your losses. This could be a neighbor, vet, extension, ag service provider, county em, or someone other than a family member or hired hand. They should visually see the losses and write, sign, and date a note stating their name and verifying that they saw the losses and the number of cattle. Please report your losses to Jackie Stilwell, Jackson County Emergency Manager, at 488-0334. You should also report them to the Animal Industry Board at 605-773-3321. As soon as the FSA Offices are open, you should report to them as well. Jackson County persons having storm-related issues can call the Helpline Center hotline at 1-877-708-4357. You can also call the Helpline Center for listening and support or to find counseling resources.

Pretty Bear 2, 4, 6; Dylan Riggins 1, 5, 6; Chandlier Sudbeck 1, 4, 5; Logan Christensen 0, 5, 5; True Buchholz 2, 2, 4; Aaron Janis 1, 3, 4; Jarrett VanderMay 1, 3, 4; Logan Ammons 2, 1, 3; Ryan Schlabach 1, 1, 2; Gavin DeVries 0, 2, 2; Kyler Ferguson 0, 2, 2; Matt Waters 0, 2, 2; Storm Wilcox 0, 2, 2; Brendon Porch 0, 1, 1; Jed Brown 0, 1, 1; Lane Patterson 0, 1, 1; Paul Smiley 0, 1, 1. Overall I was very pleased with the way we came out and got a quick start in the game. Then when our younger kids came in, I felt that they did a real nice job as well. Later that week… The Kougars hosted the Stanley County Buffalos for the first time in a long time in football on Friday night October 11. The windy and wet field conditions definitely effected our game plan, but once again our running game was able to grind it out by controlling the line of scrimmage and taking care of the ball, as the Kougars came away with a win 40-20. Offensively it was an unbelievable job by our boys this week. We ran 76 offensive plays, which is about 20-25 more than average. We had a total of 481 yards of which 433 yards came on the ground. That doesn’t come easy against a Stanley County team who was pretty quick and had some pretty big guys on defense, but our guys took it upon themselves to get it done. Chandlier Sudbeck had a tremendous night that you just don’t see very often as he carried the ball 46 times for 359 yards and 6 touchdowns. He’s an unbelievably talented, tough, and humble kid and having a kid like that combined with a bunch of guys who really believe in blocking and doing whatever it takes to win makes things a lot of fun. The greatest part about the night was it was a total team effort. Without the lead blocking of our offensive line – Logan Christensen, Gavin DeVries, True Buchholz, Herbie O’Daniel, and Logan Ammons, along with lead blockers in Dylan Riggins, Brady Jandreau, and Sam Pretty Bear it would not have been possible. These guys didn’t only contribute by blocking, but they also contributed some big yards as well, and even though their numbers may not be as eye popping, they were all huge runs as well. Dylan Riggins carried the ball 5 times for 27 yards, Brady Jandreau carried it 9 times for 28 yards, Lane Patterson carried it 8 times for 11 yards, and Wyatt Enders 1 carry for 8 yards. Lane also completed two big passes for 48 yards, one to Sudbeck for 35 yards, and one to Christensen for 13 yards. Defensively the Kougars held the Buffalos to only 34 offensive plays on the night for a total of 179 yards. That’s the lowest in both categories we’ve allowed all year. However the Buffalos had 3 big plays that kept them in the game. The first was a 70 yard run in the first quarter for a touchdown, then in the second half they had a 28 yard run for a touchdown as well as a touchdown pass of 35 yards that we did not contain very well on. But I give credit to Stanley County, they are a team who has been improving as the year has gone along and they never quit. That being said, our defense did still play a very solid game. We had a lot of tackles behind the line of scrimmage and also we did a good job of forcing three and out situations. Once again Dylan Riggins had a fumble recovery in this game and Chandlier Sudbeck had an interception. Other defensive tackle stats were (solo, assist, total): Brady Jandreau 2, 7, 9; Herbie O'Daniel 1, 7, 8; Dylan Riggins 2, 5, 7; Logan Ammons 3, 3, 6; Gavin DeVries 1, 5, 6; Logan Christensen 0, 4, 4; Sam Pretty Bear 1, 2, 3; True Buchholz 0, 3, 3; Chandlier Sudbeck 1, 1, 2; Matt Pretty Bear 1, 1, 2; Lane Patterson 0, 1, 1; Wyatt Enders 0, 1, 1. This week the Kougars travel to Presho to take on the Lyman Raiders on Friday, October 18 at 6:00 p.m. MT.

The Kadoka Area Kougars had a busy week due to the blizzard that struck our area, our game with White River was postponed until Monday, October 7. This meant the boys would play two games in one week, White River on Monday and Stanley County on Friday. The Kougars rose to the challenge and were victorious in both. The final score with White River was Kadoka Area 56, White River 22. The game against White River on Monday was a fun game for all the kids. Our varsity got out to a fast start gaining a 42-6 halftime
lead behind a lot of big plays from a lot of different guys on our team. The second half we were able to play every kid on the team. The younger kids came in and played most of the second half and did a real nice job and gained some experience. We were happy to get the win and happy to get everyone in the game. Lane Patterson threw for 4 touchdowns against White River connecting with Chandlier Sudbeck twice, and Logan Christensen and Logan Ammons each one time as well. Chandlier Sudbeck, Dylan Riggins, Brady Jan-
dreau, and Aaron Janis each had a rushing touchdown in the game. Once again, we’ve got to credit our offensive line and lead backs for their blocking. We aren’t successful on offense without the blocking that we’ve been getting out of everyone. Defensively we had a number of kids contributing. Dylan Riggins had a fumble recovery and Chandlier Sudbeck had an Interception. Tackle stats were as follows (solo, assist, total):Matt Pretty Bear 3, 6, 9; AJ Bendt 3, 5, 8; Brady Jandreau 1, 7, 8; Herbie O'Daniel 2, 5, 7; Wyatt Enders 1, 6, 7; Sam
Quaterback Lane Patterson #23 keeps the ball this time and moves close to the goal line for a new set of downs.

Kadoka Cemetery Association meets
The annual meeting of the Kadoka Calvary-Fairview Cemetery Association was called to order by President Bud Olney on September 25, 2013 at the Gateway Apartment Meeting Room. Present were Bud Olney, Chuck VanderMay, Grady Crew, Nancy Peterson and Lola Joyce Riggins. The 2012 annual meeting minutes and the 2013 regular meeting minutes were reviewed and accepted. The treasurer’s report showed balances as follows: checking, $187.08; savings, $15047.48; CDs, $54649.52. Income consisted of 2 lot sales and interest for a total of $1149.57. Expenses of $3615.05 were for maintenance, equipment repairs, insurance and fees. Grady moved to approve the treasurer’s report, seconded by Chuck and motion carried. Caretaker Kristie Stone joined the meeting and reported on the status of current upkeep. Some headstones are leaning badly and monument companies will be contacted. One has been repaired by the company already. The hail storm this summer damaged the white fencing. Replacement caps were purchased and those repairs will be made soon. The brush whacker mower is not running and more fill dirt will be needed soon. The board thanked Kristie and congratulated her on the good job she is doing. When asked if she would continue as caretaker next year, she said she would as long as two mowers would continue to be available. Kristie then left the meeting. Nancy added to the treasurer’s report that there has been new legislation passed that required all perpetual care cemeteries to submit a yearly report of income and available space. That report has been submitted. There was no old business. New business included discussion on the disrepair of the fence on the south side of the cemetery. Apparently the fence was cut and moved aside to accommodate some other repairs. Bud and Chuck agreed to take care of the situation. Discussion was held on whether to repair the old Snapper riding mower. Dale O’Connell has checked it out for repairs and thinks with new tires and some motor repair, it would run okay. It was agreed that if would be good to have it as a back-up mower and to give Dale the go ahead if he could fix it for not more than $100. Authorization to access the safety deposit box needs to be changed to current directors. Motion by Chuck, seconded by Grady to remove the names of Orville Josserand, Cliff Parke and Betty Lou Stratton and add Bud Olney and Nancy Peterson to the authorization of access. Motion carried. The terms of Grady Crew and Nancy Peterson are up. Chuck made a motion to cast a unanimous ballot for both Grady and Nancy for 2-year terms. Motion carried. Grady moved and Chuck seconded that all current officers remain the same. Motion carried. Chuck moved and Grady seconded to adjourn the meeting. Motion carried. The directors then inspected the fence situation and several ruts that were made during the summer. by Nancy Peterson, Secretary/Treasurer

Kathryn “Katy” Drageset__________________________
Katy Drageset, age 83, of Philip, S.D., died Tuesday, October 8, 2013, at the Philip Nursing Home. Kathryn “Katy” Nelson was born August 10, 1930, in Fairmont, N.D., the daughter of Clarence and Laura (Bond) Nelson. At the age of nine, she moved with her family to Philip, where she received her education. She graduated from Philip High School in 1948. In November 1948, she was united in marriage to Jay Barnett in Philip, and to this union were born four children, Cathy, Jeanette, Bruce and Laurie. They made their home in Philip, and she worked in various cafes in the area including the Midway Café, the Park Inn Café, and the Skelly Station Café.

Fellowship of God | Dr. James L. Snyder
Of Course It's Raining, I Just Washed My Car
Last week my wife made a request of me. She said, "Honey ..." Whenever my wife begins a sentence with "Honey," I know I am in for a sticky situation. Honey comes from bees and whenever she so addresses me, I know I be in trouble, and be sure there is a stinger in it for me somewhere. Looking out the window with her arms folded, which means she is thinking about some job around the house for Yours Truly, she said, "Honey, don't you think you should wash the car?" It never fails to rain right after I wash the car and have to wash it all over again. "You know, Dear," whenever a husband so addresses his wife, it always means he is trying to find some way out of doing her request, while making it sound like he wants to do it, "it's a wonderful idea but it looks like it might rain." The key to this point is to put on a grimace and look up in the sky, in a thoughtful frame of mind. "Yes, I think I saw a raindrop. It won't be long now." By Thursday, I forgot the car washing idea and was standing around our living room looking out the window. It seemed harmless enough. Have you heard the old saying, "An idle husband is a wife's workhorse?" I heard that familiar word, "Honey ..." And a streak of panic flowed through my body, freezing up every muscle I still had. "Honey, our car really needs a good washing." Before I could clear my throat, she added a phrase no husband wants to hear. "Don't you agree?" If I say, "No," I am in trouble. If I say, "Yes," I am in trouble. I am duped if I don’t and doped if I do. How is a husband to win with the odds so stacked against him? With a feigned meekness that would make St. Francis of Assisi envious, I said what all good husbands say under similar conditions, "Yes, Dear." The next three hours found me outside, vigorously washing Old Nelly. Just as I was putting the finishing touches on the wax job, I felt something cold on the back of my neck. At first, being engrossed in my chore, I did not pay any attention to it. Then another - and another and another. Then came the rain. Glancing at my freshly waxed car, I saw drops of water cheerfully dancing on my mirrored hood. The thunder sounded like a heavenly giggle and before I could make it to the door, I was completely drenched. Ducking inside out of the rain, I was greeted by my wife who calmly asked, "Oh, my. Is it raining?" "Of course it's raining," I shivered, "I've just washed my car." As I was drying off, I chuckled to myself as a favorite Bible verse came to mind. "And we know that all things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose." (Romans 8:28 KJV.) Two things in life are for certain. One: things will always fall apart. Two: God can always take those things that fall apart and pull them together for His honor and glory - come rain or shine. Rev. James L. Snyder is pastor of the Family of God Fellowship, PO Box 831313, Ocala, FL 34483. He lives with his wife, Martha, in Silver Springs Shores.

Inspiration Point
Knowing God as Our Father
Read 1 John 3:1-3 When we hear the word “father,” what images come to mind? Couch potato or hardworking? Stern or enthusiastic? Available or absent? No matter what strengths or weaknesses our earthly dads may have had, we have a heavenly Father who is perfect. Jesus’ life provides us with a picture of God as our Father. We see the Savior tenderly holding children, ministering to the sick, and showing compassion to the undeserving. Christ’s words tell us of a heavenly Father who loves people, listens to the prayers of His children, and freely offers forgiveness. Jesus also revealed that there are two spiritual fathers in this world: Jehovah and Satan. Only those who have been spiritually born into God’s family may call Him “Father.” This rebirth (John 3:3) takes place when a person accepts Jesus’ substitutionary sacrifice for his or her own sins. Those that reject Christ—the only way to God (14:6)—consequently choose the Devil as their spiritual father (8:42-45). They have believed the Father of Lies and rejected the one true God as revealed in the person of Jesus. Satan came to steal, kill, and destroy (10:10), but Jesus came that we might have new life and be reconciled to God the Father. God is aware of every need we have, and He has promised to provide His best for us. He delights in giving good gifts to His children and doesn’t hold our mistakes against us. With Him, we find intimacy, security, and satisfaction. Child of God, how well do you know your Father?

The Town Board of Interior met on September 11, 2013 at 7:00 p.m. at Cowboy Corner. Board Members present were Allen Grimes, Sue Leach and Kelly Fortune. Also present were Galen Livermont, Joe Johndreau, Cliff McClure, Charlie Kruse, Ansel WoodenKnife and Linda Livermont. Minutes for the 8/14/13 regular meeting were approved as read. OLD BUSINESS: SPN sent their representative down to inspect the grass around the lagoon and on the Rodeo Grounds. They will contact the contractor about reseeding the areas. The Community Center was discussed. A bid on the concrete will be needed before we can decide to proceed. It should have a bid on all dirt work also with fill extra as needed. Motion by Allen, seconded by Sue to get a bid from Tines on the concrete work. Motion passed. Charlie, Cliff and Ansel are representing the IVFD building committee. The IVFD discussed the proposed addition of the Community Center to the new fire hall building. To cover both the fire department and the town, it was decided by IVFD to add the town to the property deed. That way, both entities will be equally responsible for the building and property. Linda will check with Kemnitz on the legalities of shared land ownership and how to proceed. The water should not pose any problems with the addition and the power pole should also be OK where it is. The original bid did not include ceiling insulation. While a backhoe is in the area, we could also put in the culvert at the fire hall and fix Ansel’s sewer line. A meeting will be held on September 24th at 7:00 to review the concrete bid. Linda will advertise it. NEW BUSINESS: The IVFD would like to put in for a one day beer license for the hog roast on November 9th and the October 16th West River Grazing Association Meeting. Linda will advertise that also for consideration at the October meeting. There has been an inquiry on whether or not the town is going to keep the old fire hall building. The Town could either rent it out or sell the building, but keep the brown building. The land would need to be surveyed. Motion by Allen, seconded by Sue to have the land surveyed. Renner & Associates in Rapid City did the survey for Johndreau’s land. Linda will contact them.

Fall Hay Harvest Producers continue to harvest hay to replace the deficit caused by the 2012 drought. The management challenge when harvesting hay in the fall is getting the crop dry enough to safely bale with shorter days and cooler temperatures. Fall is also the time of year when the larger stemmed forages such as forage sorghum, sudangrass and sorghum-sudan crosses are harvested, and the thicker stems take more time to dry than finer stemmed crops. Hay that is baled too wet is in danger of getting hot enough to start on fire, or at the least, losing much of its feed value. The recommended moisture content for small square bales is 20% or lower, whereas large round or rectangular bales should be made at 18% or less and some references suggest no more than 16%. Hay preservatives can allow baling at higher moisture content, but add cost to the equipment, add cost for the product, and can be corrosive. There is also a limit of how high the moisture content can be and still safely bale hay. It is normal for temperatures to rise in freshly baled forages due to plant respiration and natural microbial activity. If forage moisture levels are too high, however, the combination of heat and moisture provide an ideal environment for excessive growth of bacteria that are naturally present on these crops. The respiration of these bacteria can cause the temperatures to rise to dangerous levels. The moisture content of forages can be determined with either a forage moisture tester, or by using an accurate scale and a microwave oven. If using a forage moisture tester, comparing the results of several tests with the results of using the scale and microwave oven would be much safer and provide confidence in the results. This may be particularly important when determining the moisture content of large stemmed forages, as the large stems may cause erroneous readings. To determine the moisture content of forages using a scale and microwave oven, gather and weigh a

representative sample of whole plant material. Heat the forage with a cup of cool water in a microwave oven for a few minutes at a time until the weight doesn’t change. The moisture content can be determined with the formula: % moisture = (initial weight – final weight) X 100/initial weight. Once forages are baled, it is advised to leave them scattered in the field for at least three weeks before stacking. By that time, the temperature of the hay should rise slightly and gradually return to the ambient (air) temperature. Heat can also escape from individual bales much more readily than if the bales are stacked, and if one or more bales are heating excessively, you’re not endangering the whole stack to the danger of fire. If the moisture content was borderline or questionable at the time of baling, the temperature should be monitored, particularly before stacking. If temperatures rise to no more than 120 degrees F, no loss of feed value should occur and no action is needed. If temperatures rise to between 120-130 degrees F, some loss of feed value can be expected, and temperatures should be monitored daily. At 140 degrees F, significant feed value can be lost and one should consider taking stacks apart. If temperatures rise to 150 degrees F or higher, significant loss of feed value is certain, and fire is likely.

Nitrate contamination of well water after flooding
Flooding increases the risk of surface water entering the well bore, and surface water may carry contaminants into the well such as harmful bacteria, nitrate or chemicals from e.g. petroleum storage tanks or pesticide containers, said Jeppe Kjaersgaard, assistant professor in Agricultural & Biosystems Engineering Dept. at SDSU. "These contaminants may all pose a health risk for humans and animals, but in particular, babies, pregnant women and those with compromised health, Kjaersgaard said. If you suspect surface water has entered your well, Kjaersgaard said a good precaution is to stop using the water. "Boiling water does NOT rid water of all contaminants. The best way to determine whether your well water is safe to use is to collect a water sample and submit it to a laboratory for analysis," said Kjaersgaard. The State of South Dakota maintains a list http://denr.sd.gov/des/dw/certie.as px of laboratories certified for the analysis of drinking water. Kjaersgaard references an online tool homeowners can use for a first-cut interpretation of the water analysis results: https://erams.com/wqtool. For a complete interpretation, contact the South Dakota Water Resources I n s t i t u t e http://www.sdstate.edu/abe/wri/ or the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Res o u r c e s [http://denr.sd.gov/des/dw/dwhome .aspx] to discuss any questions or concerns you have about the quality of your drinking water. If your well is contaminated at unsafe levels, stop using it for drinking or cooking. In the short term, buy or bring in water from a safe water source (e.g. from a neighbor). Contact a commercial water treatment vendor or the South Dakota Water Resources Institute [http://www.sdstate.edu/abe/wri/] for remediation options.More information about nitrates in drinking water can be found at http://igrow.org/up/resources/072000-2012.pdf.
