What’s Inside:
9/11... A day we will never forget
Sports -
State Fair results -
Down to the smallest of details, many can recall the exact moment 12 years ago when they learned of the of two hijacked planes that crashed into the World Trade Center, one into the Pentagon in Arlington, Virginia and one that crash landed in Shanksville, Pennsylvania. The memories of that day are etched into the hearts of Americans across the states. September 11 has been designated as Patriot Day and National Day of Service and Remembrance to pay tribute to the nearly 3,000 people who perished that day.

Homecoming activities planned
It’s that time of the year! Homecoming is week will be September 23-27, and the Kadoka Area High School Student Council is busy getting things organized for this exciting time of year. This year’s theme is “Superheros”, allowing imaginative minds to come up with different superhero ideas for their individual floats. The scheduled theme/dress up days for Kadoka Area District Schools are as follows: High school: Monday: Duck Dynasty day/super hero day; Tuesday: 80s movie day; Wednesday: cross dress day; Thursday: class color day; Friday: purple and gold day. Preschool through 8th grade: Monday: hillbilly day/Duck Dynasty; Tuesday: class color; Wednesday: western day; Thursday: favorite sports team day; Friday: purple and gold. Several activities have been planned during the week and everyone is invited to attend. There will be a tug-of-war between the classes and a powder puff football game on Monday night, September 23 at the football field that will start at 7:00 p.m. High school girls wishing to participate in flag football will need to sign up for the game with George Seiler. Coronation will be on Tuesday, September 24 and will begin at 7:00 p.m. at the auditorium. There will be no burning of the “K” at the auditorium this year and will be replaced with a fund raising car smash for the Make-A-Wish Foundation. On Wednesday there will be a Volleyball tournament with teams signing up with Seiler, there will be charge for the tournament and all student 9-12 are encouraged to participate. The parade will take place on Friday, September 23 and will begin at 1:30, with the line-up beginning at 12:15. The line-up will start on Maple Street at the north end of the city auditorium and go out toward the football field. As it was last year, numbers will be painted on the street to help parade entries find their spot in the lineup. Local businesses and organizations are encouraged and very welcome to enter the parade this year. If you’d like to enter a float for your business or organization, please register in advance by sending an e-mail to or calling Dave Ohrtman at the school (837-2171) or email him with the information at dave.ohrtman@k12.sd.us. Following the parade the Punt, Pass and Kick will be held at the football field. KCBA will sponsor a free pancake and sausage supper and serving will be from 4 to 6 p.m. All Kadoka businesses are asked to donate prizes for the door prize drawings

School board seeks to fill coaching positions
Robyn Jones Student enrollment numbers were presented to the Kadoka Area School Board meeting on Wednesday, September 11. Students in kindergarten through eighth grade totals are 20 students in Midland, Long Valley 44, and Interior 49. In grades preschool through fifth grade in Kadoka there are 114 students. Middle school has 54 students, while there are 88 in the high school. A home study application was approved for a student with a medical issue. The curriculum material will be provided to the student and when the health issue is no longer present, the student will return to the school. A staff member has been called for active duty in the Army and a long-term substitute teacher has been hired. This has also created some open coaching positions. Open coaching positions include varsity girls’ basketball, junior varsity girls’ basketball, middle school girls’ basketball, junior varsity boys’ basketball. The new keyless entries at the Kadoka School have been working well. The front door of the school and the doors that enter the Great Hall by the elementary secretary’s office are unlock from 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. A dress code committee is being assembled. A meeting will be schedule to discuss the policy with people from the community, student body, staff members, parents, and school board. Straighter Line Courses are being offered for the high school students. These courses will give students a chance to earn dual credits in business courses, college, medical terminologies and pharmacology. These credits will be accepted at any of the Board of Regent Schools in South Dakota. The concession stand advisor position has been filled. Adults will be compensated for working and each class will rotate working. At the end of the school year, the profits will be divided by a percentage of the games they work. Middle school basketball consists of students in grades sixth, seventh and eighth. Practices will be held after school in the little gym. This will allow students to ride the bus to school and allow families to combine the travel. Board members Dan VanderMay and Ken Lensegrav will meet with the Jackson County commissioners to discuss the future of the libraries that are located at the Long Valley and Interior Schools. A grant application was approved to submit to Macy’s Department Store for the musical “Yes, Virginia the Musical.” If approved, the $1,000 grant would help defer the costs of the community musical and the royalty fees will also be included. Following an executive session for personnel, contracts were approved for Lisa Osburn, special education teacher, and Greg Norris, extra curricular band. The next meeting will be held on Wednesday, October 9 at 7 p.m.

Letter to the Editor
sky. It is lost from view in May every year since that is when it starts going below the western horizon before the sun does. Then in mid to late August, there it is once more in the southeast just a little before sunrise. For some reason, seeing Sirius again always signals the end of summer to me and the beginning of fall. I often purposely look for it when I know it is about to reappear. It, additionally, is the last of seven bright stars that become visible in late summer and form what I call the “circle of lights.” This nifty display is pleasant to look at all winter. These seven are all among the fifteen brightest stars we can see in this hemisphere so seeing them in a relatively small circle is quite a treat for those of us who enjoy such things. I definitely am one of those. Finally, on observations that amuse us, we had one of those this summer on the Fourth of July. A group of teenagers was blasting off fireworks in a nearby parking lot that evening which was enjoyable. Then one young fellow rooted around in the trunk of his car and dug out a bagpipe. Subsequently, he marched around the parking lot playing every patriotic song known to man on his Scottish instrument and finishing with “Amazing Grace.” Somehow, this was so out of the ordinary that a person couldn’t help but smile. So there you have it. Our observations of the world around us can entertain us, make us wiser, and sometimes confuse us. We may have to think about what we’ve seen for awhile to make sense of it all. Maybe we’ll even come to the right conclusions. Let’s hope for that. Dear Editor: After reading the September 12 issue of the Kadoka Press, I feel incumbent to respond to a blurb in the “kudos and concerns” section: Bennett County Senior Citizens is a non-profit organization set up to oversee meals for the elderly at six sites across western South Dakota; those sites are Kadoka, Philip, Murdo, Fort Pierre, Martin and Kyle. Because we are a nonprofit, all of the money we receive in contribution for our meals goes directly to support our program, by paying for the food itself, site maintenance and employee’s salaries. Participant contributions make up a large portion of our revenue. Note the word “contributions,” because contributions are exactly what they are. No participant over the age of 60 will be denied a meal, regardless of how much they can afford to pay. However, contributions are not enough to keep the program viable, so we have to rely on both state and federal funding. In order to receive those funds, we must show “match funds”. Because attendance at our site is dwindling, our participant contributions to the match fund are not significant enough to comply with our state and federal requirements. In attempt to alleviate this problem, one of our participants attended a county commission meeting to ask for assistance. The county commissioners felt that our service to the community and county (not just city, as we serve folks out of town as well) justifies a $500, one –time donation from the poor relief fund. The money that was allocated by the county will stay in Jackson County, and will help us meet our state and federal “match fund” requirements. The purpose of Meals for the Elderly is to insure that participants over the age of 60 will receive a hot, well balanced meal five days a week. I have no doubt that many family members as well as the participants themselves are very grateful for this service. It is a relief for many to know that their loved ones are getting one good meal a day. We always have room for more participants and welcome you to come and check us out at the Gateway Apartments! Thank you, Jackson County Commissioners, for your kindness and concern. /s/ Penny Stout Cook, Kadoka Meals for the Elderly 837-2413
Lookin’ Around | Syd Iwan
Our observations of the world around us can be informative, amusing, and sometimes confusing. Let’s take confusing first. That applied this week when I was sitting on the deck and a hummingbird came by. It didn’t seem a bit worried about me being only three feet away and went happily on with its business of sipping nectar from four large potted lantana flowers. This specie of birds is extremely hyperactive and moves their wings so fast that they are just a blur. They are also one of the very smallest of birds. Due to their tiny size and quick movements, they can easily be overlooked or just mistaken for a big insect. As a result, it took me a few moments to realize what I was seeing, after which I looked more closely. In defense of my slowness to recognize what I was seeing, let me explain that I’ve seen very few hummingbirds in my life. There was one I glimpsed briefly at the ranch many years ago, and then last year I saw one several times at a little distance. Both sightings were short-lived affairs because these critters tend to flit in and away so fast that you can’t really get a very good look at them. This time around, I had the opportunity to actually see what my flying friend looked like, for a change, and to study its behavior. I’ve been a bird watcher for many years so I enjoyed the encounter. This was all fine and well until shortly thereafter when I saw another creature hovering around the same plants. “Ah, the hummingbird is back,” I told myself. “Wait, it seems smaller than the first one.” I looked more closely, and that’s when confusion set in. This critter had a pointed abdomen with stripes. Next I noticed that it had little antennae on its head. “What is going on here?” I asked myself. “Birds don’t have antennae.” It was a muddle because this one had the same kind of tube thing as the hummingbird for sucking up nectar. It shortly flew away and left me scratching my head. A bit later I mentioned my encounters with these airborne friends to wife Corinne. “Oh,” she said. “That was a hummingbird moth. They act like hummingbirds but they’re moths.” Well, that was a good enough explanation for what I’d seen, but I did check up to see if she was telling me the truth or selling me a bill of goods. She apparently was correct. I saw a picture of a hummingbird moth over the Internet, and it strongly resembled what I’d seen. Other people have obviously been similarly confused between bird and bug because the Internet had the following: “So you think you saw a baby hummingbird, but you just couldn’t explain those antennae. Did you even think maybe nature gives baby hummingbirds feathers that mimic antennae to disguise the vulnerable baby? Maybe they fall off when they get to a certain age. NOT!” Confusion cleared up. These are two separate creatures. I could safely go on to other things. Now on to observations being informative. This might apply to many things, but lately I was reminded, as I am every year, that fall is drawing nigh when I once again see Sirius, the Dog Star, (our brightest star) in the night

Emerging Importance of Health IT
The vast network of health care providers across our country have the important responsibility of managing the secure exchange of patient health information between consumers, providers, government entities, and insurers. The sharing of this information through hospital systems and between physicians and patients has increasingly been managed by health information technology (health IT). This month, the medical community will recognize National Health IT Week, September 16-20, 2013. Health IT is the electronic storage of records, electronic billing, electronic ordering of tests and procedures, and even a shared, interoperable network to allow providers to communicate with one another. It has become an important tool in improving the quality and effectiveness of health care, helping to prevent medical errors, reduce medical costs, and increase administrative efficiencies in the health care system. The ability to access digital records of a patient even in another city, state, or country has the potential to dramatically change the way we deliver modern medicine. While the advancement of health IT holds the promise of increasing efficiency, the key legislation funding and guiding the adoption of health IT, the Health Information Technology and Economic and Clinical Health (HITECH) Act has left many stakeholders, including providers, patients, and electronic health record vendors, pointing to ongoing problems with the law. Earlier this year, I led a group of my colleagues in producing a white paper on the key deficiencies with the HITECH Act. Some of these deficiencies are of particular concern for rural areas of South Dakota. The HITECH Act provides incentive payments to encourage doctors and hospitals to adopt and use certified electronic health records (EHRs). The incentive payments will be phased out over time and replaced with penalties for not “meaningfully using” health IT. The requirements to meet these “meaningful use” standards are difficult for small hospital networks and physician clinics to meet. Imposing penalties on these small, rural facilities could make it more difficult to continue to provide care in some smaller communities. This July, in a hearing before the Senate Finance Committee, I requested increased flexibility from the Department of Health and Human Services for rural hospitals and physician clinics to meet meaningful use standards. While the administration has yet to provide clarification, I will continue to work on behalf of rural health care for the flexibility needed to implement EHRs throughout the state.

Protecting America’s National Security
As you read this column, I want you to ask yourself this question: do you believe the world will be more or less dangerous ten years from now? While our nation may face a variety of challenges, one issue affects us all – our national security. I believe my number one priority as South Dakota’s representative in Congress is to protect the people I serve. Not only is this my top priority, but it should be our federal government’s as well. Unfortunately, recent actions from the Administration have not reflected our duty and responsibility to keep America secure. The president has pushed for military intervention in Syria and lobbied members of the House and Senate to support his decision. While I applaud him for coming to Congress to seek approval rather than initiate military action on his own accord, I cannot and will not support the president’s plan for a targeted military strike in Syria. From the beginning, I’ve been very skeptical of the president’s call for limited strikes in Syria because he has failed to give the American people a coherent objective and long-term strategy. Like many of you, I tuned in this week to listen to the president’s address to the nation. I hoped to find answers to pending questions I have, such as how military action would leave the United States more secure and what the consequences of failure might be. Unfortunately, I was left wanting. As a member of the House Armed Services Committee, I have participated in hours of hearings and briefings and even after all of that, I have more questions than answers. What we need is leadership from the Administration. From government agencies overstepping their bounds to a lack of transparency surrounding the Benghazi attack, South Dakotans are reluctant to trust this Administration. President Obama should come to the table with his palms up and have an honest conversation about what engaging in military action would mean for our men and women in uniform. It’s time to put political legacies aside and focus on putting America first. Ask yourself another question – are we going to start a war because we are strong or because we are weak? The Administration’s argument in support of intervention has been muddled to say the least. Secretary Kerry stated that “limited action” does not mean the United States is going to war with Syria, but if the United States was fired upon, we would deem it an act of war that demanded retaliation. Why would Syria respond differently? Our nation’s credibility is at stake. Without a clear objective and end game, military action would expose our national security to potential retaliation and involvement in a conflict that lacks a clear solution. I will not be supporting the president’s plan if it comes to a vote in Congress, but I remain hopeful that a legitimate diplomatic solution can be reached. As President Ronald Reagan once said while negotiating with the then-Soviet Union, we must “trust, but verify.” Any deal that involves Syria turning over their chemical weapons for destruction must be transparent and verifiable for all nations involved. I’ve heard from thousands of South Dakotans on this issue and would encourage you to reach out and let me know your thoughts. Please send me an email through my website at http://noem.house.gov or call one of my offices using the contact information below.

South Dakota’s Sound Pension Fund
As we enter the fall, it is easy to remember why we are so proud of South Dakota. We have beautiful landscapes and unparalleled outdoor recreation. Our farmers and ranchers produce commodities that feed and fuel the world. And we have great schools where dedicated teachers and involved parents help our students achieve high levels of success. South Dakotans can be proud for another reason that is not so well-known: the strength of our state’s retirement pension system. Earlier this month, I attended a meeting of the South Dakota Retirement System Board of Trustees. The Trustees manage the state retirement system for nearly all public employees, including teachers, law enforcement and many other city, county, school and state workers. In recent years, the Trustees have faced serious challenges: an unprecedented global recession that caused significant market losses; the possible rescission of benefit increases; and dramatic changes in accounting rules and standards for operating a pension plan. The Trustees responded with courage and made difficult changes. They constrained cost of living adjustments, even after a lawsuit challenged their decision. It took courage to make that tough decision and to successfully defend it in court. The Trustees also made more conservative projections for the future, reducing their actuarial assumptions for future returns to 7.25 percent and 7.5 percent. They did this even though they knew it would make the health of the pension plan look worse, and even though the plan’s history could have justified rosier projections. Many other states continue to assume higher rates of return, but in South Dakota we are not planning for the best-case scenario. Looking at 126 public pension systems in other states, there are only 10 that have more conservative investment return assumptions than South Dakota. The other 115 are more optimistic, and many of these are funds that are in dismal shape – in states like Illinois, Connecticut, Kentucky and Hawaii. We should be proud that the strength of the South Dakota Retirement System is gaining national attention. Last year, Barron’s Dow Jones magazine recognized South Dakota as “The Best Run State in America,” because of our state’s very low debt and well-funded pension status. This month, the Trustees took an action that is almost unheard of these days. They used their available funds to extinguish all unfunded actuarial liabilities. These were liabilities that were to be paid down over a 30-year period. It is as if one bought a new house on a 30-year mortgage, and then paid off the mortgage the next year. Almost no other pension fund in the nation could do this, and South Dakota will be stronger for decades to come because of this wise decision. One reason for the strength of our pension fund is the strong performance of the South Dakota Investment Council. This year, the Investment Council outperformed their investment benchmark by the widest margin since 1988. An article in Institutional Investor magazine said that the South Dakota Investment Council should be awarded “this year’s national championship” as the bestperforming fund in the nation. South Dakotans believe in frugality, and in sound stewardship of funds. We owe a debt of gratitude to the SD Retirement System Board of Trustees, the SD Investment Council and their staffs for their conservative management. Together these South Dakotans have made us the best in America.

Your questions, Our answers
Q: How long does it take for wages to appear on Social Security records? My 2012 earnings were not yet on my record when I filed for benefits a few weeks ago. A: Employers report employee wages to Social Security only once during the year, when you receive your W-2 form. Posting from employer information to individual records goes on all year and usually completed by fall of the following year for records given to SSA by paper W-2. Nearly all 2012 wage records will be posted by the fall of 2013. W-2 data submitted electronically by employers using the free Social Security business services online (BSO) posts faster. SSA representatives may request a prior year W-2 before earnings are posted so new beneficiaries receive credit for immediate past year wages. Whether or not this is done, the end result is the same because records of all beneficiaries are automatically reviewed when new earnings are posted. If the new earnings increase benefit amounts, any adjusted amount is retroactive. This applies to new beneficiaries as well as for people who have been receiving SSA benefits for years. Q: How many Social Security numbers have been issued? A: In all, more than 460 million Social Security numbers have been assigned with about 5.5 million new numbers issued each year. There are over one billion combinations of the nine-digit Social Security number so the current system has enough new numbers to last for several more generations. See the Numbers & Cards section of the SSA website, www.socialsecurity.gov, if you need to replace or change the name on your card at no charge.

On Saturday, Sept. 14, Florence Hogen, Doris Rock of Sturgis and Phil Hogen of Black Hawk attended the South Dakota Hall of Fame 2013 Induction Ceremony at the Cedar Shore Resort in Chamberlain. Charles Trimble, halfbrother of Eloise Brown, was named Champion for Excellence in Tribal Representation and was inducted into the South Dakota Hall of Fame along with nine other distinguished individuals. Charles was born and raised in Pine Ridge and is now retired and living in Omaha, Nebraska. Lila Whidby, Wanda Swan, Lois Lurz of Hot Springs went to Philip on Friday to visit Lola Hulce. Saturday the four ladies went to Wall to attend the Relay for Life events and took part in the cancer survivor lap in the evening. Lois was a guest at the Whidby home over the weekend and left for her home on Sunday. Many relatives and friends attended the visitation and funeral services last week for Wanda Holcomb, a long-time resident of Long Valley. Wanda died at the Philip Nursing Home on Monday, September 9, and funeral services were held at Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church with burial in the Kadoka Cemetery on Thursday, Sept. 12. Sympathy is extended to her family. Sympathy is extended to two other families in the area who lost loved ones this past week. Beth Olson Long died at the Philip hospital on Friday, Sept. 13. She was the wife of Bob Long of Midland and mother of Sharri Pettyjohn of Kadoka. Her services are scheduled for Saturday, Sept. 21, at the Lutheran Church in Philip at 2 p.m. Bonnie M. Riggins lost her battle with cancer on Sept. 13, passing away at her apartment in Kadoka. Bonnie was the widow of Wayne Riggins and her funeral services are set for 10:30 a.m. Thursday, at Kadoka’s Catholic Church. She will be buried in Wanblee with graveside rites at 1:30 p.m. Abe and Esther Ritchhart of Sioux Falls arrived in Kadoka on Sunday and visited at the home of Cindy and Ken Wilmarth. They left for Cheyenne, WY, Tuesday to visit Abe’s family. Esther is the mother of Cindy Wilmarth. Jan and Larry Miller attended the wedding of their daughter, Shelly, to Duane Meyer, on Friday, Sept. 13. It was an afternoon wedding at 2 p.m. held in the Vicky Powers Community Park in Rapid City, and they returned home later that afternoon. The Jackson County American Legion Auxiliary held its first meeting after the summer break on Thursday evening at the Community Room of the Gateway Apartments. It was announced that the Fall District 2 meeting will be held on Saturday, Sept. 21 in Philip. Christmas gifts to the veterans gift shop in Hot Springs will again be taken up in October, and gifts can be left at the Jackson County Library any time before October 15. A booth fee was sent to the committee organizing the 41st Holiday Festival in Kadoka which will be held on November 3. The auxiliary will again have a bake sale that day. The report for receipts of poppy day showed that locals donated $366.35 on Poppy Day in May. All poppy funds will be used to support veterans’ programs during the year. The members attending the meeting voted to hold fewer meetings during the year, possible every other month. The next regular meeting will be held on Thurs., Nov. 14 at 7 p.m. Only one area bronc rider has been listed on prorodeo.com the past two weeks. Louie Brunson tied for 4th place at the Pendleton, Oregon Round-Up, held Sept. 1114. He scored an 83 and each fourth place rider got $1,101 in the first round. Clair Bitting was taken to the emergency room at the VA in Sturgis on Friday night by his daughter, Kolette. He was having trouble walking and was encountering some kidney problems. They checked him into the hospital and kept him over the weekend. On Sunday evening, he was scheduled to be released on Monday, and his son, Curtis, had the day off and was planning to bring him back home. Curtis spent Sunday night at the ranch with his mom and made supper for everyone including his sister, Kolette, who lives next door. Curtis said he is still working at the hospital in Philip but has recently changed jobs from working in the laundry to working in the kitchen. The kitchen is a little better since there is more to do so it is less boring. Kolette said her eleven hens are starting to lay now, and she’s getting four eggs a day. Since they are still pullet eggs and small, you can eat quite a few of them at a time, but they are getting larger. Jim and Fayola Mansfield drove to Osage, WY, last weekend to visit their daughter, Alison Davis, and family. On Friday evening, they watched their grandson, Thomas, play football with the Sundance/Upton team who are the Patriots. Thomas is fifteen now. Another game was taken in on Monday after which the Mansfields returned home. Ruth Ann Niehoff and her mom, Kate DeVries, have been traveling a lot this week. They went to Rapid City on one day so Kate could keep a doctor appointment. While there they visited with Dana DeVries. Another day, they went to Murdo for Kate to visit the dentist. Kate also got a haircut in Kadoka. Ruth Ann said her son, Andrew, and she plan on leaving later this week and returning to Carson City, Nevada, but they’ll be back eventually. Ruth Ann and Andrew had a little excitement this week when a rattlesnake visited them while they were painting the barn. He positioned himself under

the ladder where Andrew shot him. Ruth Ann said she’d just been in that area in short pants and with little foot protection so she was glad he slithered in after she’d gotten off the ladder. Jim and Georgann Addison are up to their normal pursuits of attending Jami’s volleyball games and fishing. For the fishing effort, they use a small boat that gets them out past the moss. Jim took Betty Kusick fishing one day last week but not in the boat. Betty, though, is willing to try the boat so that will be on the agenda soon. Jamie Dolezal and kids and her dad, Kirby Schofield, attended the Relay for Life this weekend at Wall. This was a benefit for cancer and had many events scheduled all day. Since Kirby has fought cancer repeatedly in his life, the affair had special significance for him. John Dolezal, meanwhile, took care of things at home and had a nice afternoon nap in his recliner. Charlene Ceniceros was recently visited for four days by her cousin, Don Shot, and his wife, Dorothy, of California. Don’s mother, Martha Shot, was a sister to Charlene’s mom, Ida Estes. While Don was here, they visited the Crazy Horse monument and toured the Black Hills. They also visited Don’s mom at the nursing home in White River. Mark and Nicci DeVries and sons have been busily attending football games lately. Sons Gavin and Geoffrey played in a game at Wall, and Greyson was in one at White River. Since Mark coaches the junior high boys and helps with the high school, the whole family is involved. Nicci works with the cheerleaders. Greyson is even a water boy for the highschool team. Mark said the initial practice times for the teams were during really hot weather and not much fun. The last week, though, was fine with much nicer weather. Howie and Cathy Ireland have been making salsa lately since their tomato crop turned out pretty good. They make both hot and mild salsa, but Howie gets along better with the mild. They make hot to share with their kids, however, and Kathy likes some of that part of the time. Howie continues to deliver mail, and Kathy still cooks at the nursing home in Kadoka. Jodie O’Bryan took in the Stephanie Williams Memorial Rodeo in Wall on Sunday. Stephanie died from cancer at a young age last fall and had helped coach volleyball at Wall. In the paper, Jodie thought she read that the senior division of the rodeo was for those over 50. She figured she would fall into that category. Later she was surprised to read that the senior division was for those over 30 instead of 50. Never mind, she was both. Nevertheless, she came away with the title of allaround runner up. To do that, she came in third in pole bending, fourth in barrel racing, fourth in goat tying, and fourth in breakaway roping. She also had a very good time since it was a beautiful day and a lot of her friends were there. Back at home, Scot spent the week riding and training horses as usual. Jodie worked in the diner at 1880 Town but said that will probably close late this week. That means she won’t have to get up at 5:30 every morning to get to work on time. She will probably continue to work at the town several days a week doing painting and upkeep, but that work doesn’t need to start quite so early. Syd, Corinne, and Chance Iwan were visited on Monday by Syd’s sister, Pat Jones, and her husband, Gary, of Huron. Pat and Gary flew in with their plane so the trip only took a little less than two hours. On the way home, they stopped at Pierre to see their son, Jason, and family which includes two grandkids that need to be visited fairly regularly. Later in the week, Pat and Gary left for a trip east and south and eventually southwest to San Antonio where there is another grandkid to visit.
Norris News | Marjorie Anne Letellier, 462-6228
Long Valley and Norris communities have been saddened this week by the loss of two dear ladies. Monday, several folks from this area attended services for Lucille (Peck) Brunsch, 93 of Norris and Thursday services were held in Kadoka for Wanda(Thomsen) Holcomb of Long Valley. Both were such dear ladies. My girls were amazed that a “lady” could be the postmaster at Long Valley, they were used to having Bob Totton. They finally figured out she could do it because she had a big black dog and thought every post office should have one. Monday, Maxine Allard accompanied Janice, June and Jan Ring to Martin where the ladies attended the funeral services for Lucille Brunsch. Dan Tafts were in White River for volleyball games; their daughter, Morgan, is a member of the team. White River lost eight seniors last year so they are using this for a rebuilding year in volleyball. Andrea Beckwith hosted the James Letelliers to a supper on Tuesday evening at her home in honor of Grandparents Day, which was Sunday. Every day is Grandparents Day if you ask me. Wednesday, Jean Kary visited at the June Ring home. School News: Congratulations to the homecoming royalty from White River High School, we are so proud of all of you and know you will live up to the honor given you. Norris is home again to the queen Dusti Good Shield, daughter of Audi Larvie Black Bull, and the king was Tre Iyotte. Crowned princess was Casey Fairbanks and prince was Tavis Burbank, son of Mike and Vicki Burbank, of Norris. The Norris young people join a long list of royalty from this area. Little brother Hunter Burbank also served as a crown bearer so we are popping with pride around here. All the students from Norris School rode on the Norris School float for the homecoming parade on Friday afternoon, too. June Ring drove to Winner and caught a ride to the State CFEL Convention in Huron with State Secretary Ethel Evans and Area 7 Director Donna Duffy. The gals came home on Sunday. Maxine Allard accompanied Bertie Allard and Cliff and Pam Allard to the services for Wanda Holcomb in Kadoka on Thursday morning. Gale and JoAnn Letellier attended the visitation and funeral services for Wanda Holcomb on Thursday. JoAnn also helped with the lunch following the service. Deb Ring of Spearfish came home for the weekend and helped out canning, etc. again. I think, everyone I called said they had been canning tomatoes this last week. Friday, the James Letellier went to Maurine, SD, and were supper guests at the home of Gary and Karen Price. The gals are sisters. They also helped little Ryleanne Price celebrate her birthday that evening. The Letelliers also attended the visitation for Della Rae Mickelson at Prairie Home Church later that evening before returning home. Folks may be interested to know that Ronnell Merchen’s husband, Dave Grotzke, of Montana had a part in the funeral service. Evan and Dorothy Bligh quit haying long enough to follow their colt at the Fizz Bomb Futurity in Gillette on Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Oh, Whatta Reba was standing fourth among 127 entries in the short go at the last report. Saturday, Dan and Susan Taft were in Philip for the volleyball tournament. Morgan is a freshman so it is volleyball these days. Francis Taft of Pierre spent the weekend at the Tafts. He is busy working on a hunting blind. Heather Taft was the chore girl for the Blighs while they were gone. Lyle O’Bryan came on Saturday and picked up his sister, Maxine Allard, and they rode on to Martin and their brother, Dean, joined them. They traveled on to Hot Springs and attended a family reunion at the home of their sister, Betty. Others attending were: their brother, Tom, and wife, Rosella, of Minnesota; and sister, Helen, and her husband, John, of Black Hawk. Others attending of the younger generation were: Vince Lopez, Mike O’Bryan and Sharon Allard. They returned home that evening. The James Letelliers, Julie Letellier and Andrea Beckwith traveled to Mitchell on Saturday to attend a Grace University of Omaha and Dakota Wesleyan lady soccer game. The Letellier’s granddaughter, Erica Beckwith, is a member of the team for Grace and she played the whole game. Gale and JoAnn Letellier hosted the South Dakota Central Plains Chapter of the Master Gardeners meeting at their home on Sunday. A group of about 45 folks attended the beautiful yard tour and the luncheon that followed. Master Gardeners came from Martin, Winner, Vivian and Draper. They were thrilled to see Debbie Galloway of Kilgore bring former Master Gardener Ardith Morton of Washington state. Sharon and Deb Ring also were among the guests at the Letelliers that afternoon. Carol Ferguson worked in the Wanblee Post Office Monday and Thursday through Saturday of last week. Sunday, Ed and Carol Ferguson went to Winner and spent time with their new great granddaughter, NaTalia, and her parents, Kaitlyn Ferguson and Zach Elliot. Irene Kaufman drove as far as Mission and then rode along with them to Winner.
Gateway News | Lola Joyce Riggins, 837-2053 (Let it ring.)
Bonnie Riggins was allowed to go and rest in peace on Friday night. Her daughter, Ella, was with her. We extend our sympathy to her family. Verda Anderson and her son, Curtis, came on Sunday evening to get Dick Pinney and took him to Philip for medical attention. The quilters were busy in the community room on Wednesday afternoon. Lova Bushnell, Susie Bauman, Margie Peters, and Marie Addison got a quilt tied. I see Frances Terkildsen put the last pieces in the our thousand piece puzzle. If you ever come to see us, take a walk in the hallways. When the puzzles included pieces of 1,000 to 1,580 and you get all the pieces put together, a real pretty picture appears. Then the puzzles are hung on the walls for all to enjoy. They are a challenge, but fun to do. I had a real busy week visiting with Dixie Cadman, Ella Hindman, and Marla Nelson in the afternoon or evening. I attended a Jackson County Commissioners meeting on Monday. Attended a library meeting at the Interior School on Tuesday with librarian Deb Moor and Diana Coller. Take interest in your children. It has to be decided over the library and school books. I also attended the football game in Wall on Friday. It seemed like the boys couldn’t get things to go together, but in the third quarter the game didn’t last long enough when things were starting to fit into place. I saw Jerry Baldwin and he sends his best to home folks. He now lives in Rapid City. Marie Addison enjoyed her birthday observance with six of her daughters in the Black Hills and a special dinner. Thought for the week: Attitude is a small thing that makes a big difference.
Kadoka Nursing Home | Cathy Stone, 837-2270
I hope everyone had a great Labor Day and will continue to celebrate this day everyday! On Monday we didn’t have the pleasure of Lois Pettyjohn’s hymnal music but she came this week with bells on, she’s so awesome! We ha d a good turnout and then Father Bryan held Mass. What a good start to a good week! For Bingo on Tuesday Frances Terkilsen was the caller and Geraldine Allen always likes to play and visit with Ruth Klundt and the other ladies. I’m thinking I should be a player for awhile and build up my quarter collection. Some of these residents make some big $$ playing twice a week! Haha! Ron and Renate Carson stopped in to see Aunt Joy Parker and bring her the mail. It’s always great to see them and Wilma Carleton’s beautiful smile. Joy also had a visit from Gale and Oliver Carson from Wall. Mary Bull Bear had quite a few visitors this past couple of weeks. Both her sons stopped by and her daughters are really good about stopping in along with all those precious grandchildren and great grandchildren. Paulette Wilmarth came by to visit with Alice Wilmarth. They can find something always to talk about! Sunday afternoon a group of the residents enjoyed a movie while others watched the football season openers. On Tuesday, a group of us aboarded the bus at 7:30 a.m. We went up to Hill City to ride the 1880 Train. The residents going were: Joy Parker, Ruth Klundt, Elmer Williams, Shorty Ireland, Sheila Bowen, Kate DeVries, Charity Edwards, and Elaine Kemnitz. Others joining in on the awesome trip were: Don Kemnitz, Ruthann Niehoff, Eddie and Hal Ireland, Cathy Stone, Heidi Coller, and the best bus driver ever, Marsha Sumpter. We packed a picnic lunch, played games, and enjoyed some beautiful scenery throughout the hills. One more thing to cross of the old bucket list! Darin and Dorothy Louder were down to see Dwight and to catch him up on the farming news. Also, stopping by to visit with Dwight were Janet and Nelva Louder. Kristen Arnold (Clara Belle’s niece), Shirley Josserand, Clara Belle’s brother, and her husband, Bud, all were in to see her this week. Edith Perault got a surprise visit from her daughter, Mary. They enjoyed a good visit and then they were joined by Edith’s other daughter , Vicki Wilson. Vicki lives a short distance from here so we get to see her quite often. Betty and Kenny Kusick dropped in to see Bunny Green and chatted with Ray Becker, a good friend of Kenny’s. All have been friends for many years. Frances Terkilsen came by to visit with her sister, Betty VanderMay. Others stopping in were Steve, Vicki, Todd, and Tel VanderMay. Betty attended Wanda Holcombs funeral services at the Catholic Church. We would like to send our deepest sympathy to the family and to all others losing their loved ones this past couple weeks. We sure appreciate all are regulars who drop in to say hi and all who have brought in garden produce. The residents really like the fresh veggies and it gives me plenty of great topics to reminince on! Trust this, I’ve learned more from the residents on gardening and canning than I could’ve ever imagined. The homecoming parade is coming up and I’m looking for purple or gold Kougar shirts for the residents to wear that day. Anyone who has some shirts that would like to donate them, we would love to have them! Go Kougars!

The Kougars traveled to Wall Friday September 13 to take on the Wall Eagles in a Western Great Plains conference matchup. Unfortunately for the Kougars the Eagles were better on the night as Wall won the game 47-28. A sloppy first half riddled with turnovers and mistakes put us in a hole we couldn’t climb out of. After a slow start offensively and giving up poor field position, the Eagles scored quickly to get off to a 7-0 lead. On the ensuing kickoff Sam Pretty Bear scampered for an
85 yard gutsy kick return for our first and only touchdown of the first half. We were able to convert the 2-point conversion and we held the lead early in the 1st quarter 8-7. The Eagles next drive was a lengthy one in which they picked up 3 fourth down conversions in order to bring the score to 14-8. After that, turnovers plagued the Kougars the rest of the half. We had way too many turnovers, missed blocks, bad snaps, interceptions, you name it. We couldn’t get anything to go our way. When you face any team, and turn the ball over to them that many times, you’re in for a long night.

Even with all of that bad happening to us, our kids could have easily put their heads down and quit, but in the second half they came out and played hard. We had a number of kids that went down with injuries, and we had many guys come off the bench to help contribute in the second half as well. I was pleased with the way the kids responded in the second half, that’s something we can build on, but the sloppy play cannot happen and that is what we will work to correct this week. Chandlier Sudbeck led the Kougars this week offensively with 16 carries for 134 yards and 1 TD. Dylan Riggins had 27 yards on 7 carries. Lane Patterson was 7 of 13 passing for 126 yards and 2 TD’s, 1 Int, and 2 conversions completions as well. Sudbeck was 1 of 1 for 25 yards passing. Receiving for the Kougars included Chandlier Sudbeck with 3 catches for 87 yards and 2 TD’s, Logan Ammons had 2 catches for 28 yards, Sam Pretty Bear had 1 catch for 12 yards, Aaron Janis 1 catch for 11 yards, Wyatt Enders 1 catch for 10 yards, and Dylan Riggins 1 catch for 3 yards. Sam Pretty Bear had 1 kickoff return for a TD. Defensive stats for the Kougars this week: Chandlier Sudbeck 12 tackles; Wyatt Enders 9; Sam Pretty Bear 6; Dylan Riggins 6; True Buchholz 5; Herbie O’Daniel 5; Lane Patterson 5; Gavin DeVries 3; Matthew Pretty Bear 3; Logan Ammons 2; AJ Bendt 1; Jed Brown 1; Jarrett VanderMay 1 Next week the Kougars are on the road once again as we travel to Rapid City to take on the Comets of RC Christian at 7:00 p.m.

Dunn said that producers have consistently managed their land to get the most pounds of animal off the land, by utilizing heavy grazing; making more money per animal. Dunn stated he, and others, had been taught to keep the land in better condition and the producer would make more money over time. But, he said, that is not what an efficiency study showed. The study showed the validity of the heavy grazing and why people do it, but he said that doesn’t mean producers have to. Smart also spoke about the Bad River watershed project he has worked with. He noted that the sediment that is being dumped into Lake Sharp where the Bad River empties into the Missouri River is not due to water coming off short grass rangeland, but from gullies. Pat Johnson, range science professor, agreed that the low graze provides more water to run off, but it does not take the soil with it. Smart said the implementation of no-till planting has helped decrease the sediment buildup. The sediment buildup at the mouth of the Bad River has decreased since the mid-1990s, he said. Johnson and graduate student Christi Koehler gave an update on the patch grazing study. The study’s main focus is if patch grazing could be a viable alternative to patch burning for increasing the diversity of plants, improving livestock production and wildlife habitat. Part of the study looked at how grazing levels affected bird diversity and their nesting habitats. Johnson said this research could help in maintaining or increasing bird species numbers. Steve Fairbairn, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, stated this data could be valuable to his agency and they can relay it on to landowners who want to conserve and improve their grassland. Roger Gates, Extension range specialist and Pete Bauman Extension range field specialist discussed pasture carrying capacity. Gates said that by knowing what grasses, their amounts, and the moisture in the vegetation – knowing the feed supply – the landowner can allocate the correct amount of livestock to the pasture. To gain some of this knowledge, the landowner must clip samples from different areas of the pasture. Sampling different areas is a must, they said, since vegetation will vary within the pasture. They stated that too often a landowner gets locked into “I should be able to stock” instead of listening to the monitoring data. Gates urged them to listen to the data instead. The new frontier for rangeland monitoring, Gates said, is the study of microbial profiles. He said that while this is not readily accessible to producers, it is coming. He said a Texas study noted that changes in the range can be noted in the microbes before they are noticed in the soil carbons. Seven different 30 minute sessions included discussions on genetic testing in beef cattle; body condition scoring as a tool to monitor nutritional status; a look inside a rumen and discussion on it’s microbes; research regarding nutrition during gestation; sulfates in water; Beef Quality Assurance; and climate and weather around Cottonwood and the state of South Dakota.
Research updates presented at Cottonwood field station
by Nancy Haigh Area producers gathered at the Cottonwood Range and Livestock Field Station, September 7, for Tri-County Ag Day and an open house of the station’s newest facility. Barry Dunn, dean of the College of Agriculture and Biological sciences at South Dakota State University, welcomed the attendees to the event and conducted the open house of the new office/laboratory/storage building. Dunn said that as more native prairie has been planted to crops, it has become more important to manage the grasslands that remain. That means that research at the Cottonwood station, as well as other such stations, becomes more important to help manage those grasslands. With that in mind the university chose to invest money from grants and private donations toward the new facility. Dunn stated that very few stations are dedicated to the research of short grass prairie and by reinvesting in Cottonwood, everyone would benefit, not only this generation, but the next. A short travel by bus to a study sight south of the headquarters allowed visitors to see how the study begun in 1942 has affected the native grasses. Sandy Smart, range science professor spoke about the long-term project. Smart stated that the land was divided into three grazing strategies in 1942; low, medium and high density grazing. The land contained the same plants at that time. Over the years the lightly grazed area began to show more western wheat and green needle grasses, the heavy grazed area became short grasses while the medium grazed pastures were a mixture of the two types of grasses. By 1969, the focus changed to stocking rates so that those conditions could be maintained.
Barry Dunn, left, and Sandy Smart, range science professor at SDSU spoke on the long-term range study at Cottonwood.

Beth M. Olson_________________________________
Beth M. Olson Long, age 93 of Midland, S.D., died Friday, September 13, 2013, at the Hans P. Peterson Memorial Hospital in Philip. Beth M. Nelson was born on December 20, 1919, to Garrison and Myrtle Bratton. At the age of two, Beth was put up for adoption along with her sister, Artis, at the Owatonna State Orphanage. Walter and Mabel Nelson of Minneapolis adopted Beth in 1923. She married her high school sweetheart, Art Brown. Three sons were born to this union, Tommie, Kenny and Jimmie. Beth enjoyed Kenny and his daughter, Jill’s visits to the ranch during the summers. Beth was married to Clayton Olson in 1947. To this union two sons and one daughter were born, Larry, Barry and Sharri. Beth lived in Rapid City and worked at Coca Cola several years.

Inspiration Point
Why We Lose Our Peace
Read Romans 12:3-10 One of the greatest enemies to peace is the entitlement mentality that’s widespread in our land today. Too few people are satisfied with their portion in life. Underlying this discontent is the false assumption that society owes them something or that their rights are being overlooked. This type of selfcentered thinking can creep into businesses, marriages, churches, and other institutions, generating all kinds of discord and causing far-reaching consequences. This is the type of situation that was developing in the 13th chapter of Genesis, when Abram and his nephew Lot were attempting to dwell in an area that was too small for the abundant holdings of both men. The pressure became so great that there was enormous strife between Abram’s herdsmen and those working for Lot. Something had to be done. Abram in his wisdom eased the tension by offering Lot his choice of pasturelands (Gen. 13:9). Instead of fighting for his so-called rights, Abram chose the way of peace. He did what the apostle Paul advised centuries later when he wrote, “Give preference to one another in honor” (Rom. 12:10). Did Abram lose out by being generous to Lot? Not at all. Take note of God’s words to the patriarch after he had willingly relinquished the prime territory to his nephew and departed (Gen. 13:14-15)—the Lord saw fit to promise all that land and beyond to Abram and his descendants. Our God blesses peacemakers (Matt. 5:9).

Winner Regional Extension Center
Who are You Going to Call? The thought occurred to me the other day; I wonder if, after nearly two years since the re-organization of the Extension Service in South Dakota, is the phone number for the Winner Regional Extension Center in the phone book? I hadn’t gotten around to looking yet this morning when someone called with a question, and after that was taken care of, suggested that we should get our phone number in the phone book. He said it wasn’t in the phone book and had to look in the newspaper for my news column to find it (I always thought writing a weekly news column was a good idea). As it turns out, the phone number for the Winner Regional Extension Center is in both of the telephone books we are provided with here in the Winner center. As apparently some people have figured out, the key is to look under “SDSU Extension Regional Center. I don’t have access to telephone books from other areas of South Dakota, but I could imagine they would list Regional Extension Centers in those areas the same way. If you are looking online, visit: http://igrow.org/about/our-experts/ for a complete listing of all the SDSU Extension Regional Centers, the County Extension Offices where the 4-H Advisors are located, as well as the SDSU Extension Campus-Based Staff. If you want to contact the SDSU Extension Regional Center here in Winner, call 842-1267. Watering Trees Many trees which were just beginning to recover from the 2012 drought are now beginning to suffer from the late summer water deficit that many areas are experiencing. There are numerous trees with discolored foliage and drooping shoots. If trees in areas that have been low in precipitation, expect to see some dieback and decline next year if these trees are not watered soon.
Bob Fanning, Plant Pathology Field Specialist 842-1267
The best time to water your trees to prepare them for winter, particularly evergreens, is not just before freeze-up, but now. Most trees do best with about 1 inch of precipitation a week at this time of year so that means a fair amount of watering.

Nearly 150 groups ask for rejection of Sec. 11102 in House Farm Bill
On Monday, Sept. 10, R-CALF USA and 142 other organizations sent a letter to members of congress urging them to remove the language in the House Farm Bill (Section 11102) that blocks Grain Inspection Packers and Stockyards Administration (GIPSA) from protecting producers against retaliation, fraud, and other unfair and anticompetitive practices of concentrated meatpackers. The letter states that "during the 2008 Farm Bill process, Congress heard extensively from livestock and poultry producers, farmer organizations and consumer groups about anti-competitive and unfair business practices...as a result, the final 2008 Farm Bill included provisions to require USDA to write regulations to address the most egregious of these practices and to define certain terms in the statute." Section 11102 of the House version of the 2013 Farm Bill threatens the protections placed in the 2008 Farm Bill. This section would also limit USDA's authority to enforce the Packers and Stockyards Act of 1921. The letter continues, "The impetus for Section 11102 is that the livestock and poultry companies whose practices were examined by the 2008 Farm Bill provisions and/or USDA's implementing regulations don't appreciate that scrutiny. Such practices include forcing poultry growers to make expensive upgrades to their chicken houses, at the same time as the companies controlling their contracts are secretly planning to shut down plants and cancel their contracts, leaving the farmers with massive stranded investments and facing bankruptcy, and leaving the taxpayers to pick up the tab." The letter concludes with the 143 groups requesting the members of congress to "reject Section 11102 of the House bill during the 2013 Farm Bill Conference and allow farmers and ranchers to prosper in a business environment based on mutual cooperation and fair business standards, not fear, coercion and retaliation."
