Commissioners accept resignation of highway superintendent, hears road addition requests
~ by Robyn Jones ~ The Jackson County Commissioners met on Monday, September 10. Commissioners Jim Stilwell, Glen Bennett, Ronnie Twiss, Larry Denke and Delores Bonenberger were present, along with Larry Johnston, who will serve on the board and replace Bonenberger in January. Three notices of hospitalization and a mental illness notice were reviewed. No action was taken. Discussion was held on the October meeting. The regular meeting date would on the 8th, which is also Native American Day, and observed by the county. After discussion, it was decided to move the meeting date to Monday, October 1. The financial statement was presented by County Auditor Vicki Wilson. The emergency management fund had a negative balance due to no funds have been received from the state department yet. Wilson stated that in previous years, funds from the state have been received in September. Motion carried to transfer $3,000 to the fund. Correspondence was received from Wallworth County Title Company that stated they would agree to pay $125 per book for a digital copy of all the records in the Registers of Deeds Office. Group health insurance rates were presented. Current rates are $569.31 per employee and with the rate increase, for the same plan, the monthly cost would be $588.89. A motion carried to continue with the same coverage plan for 2013. Currently there are 16 employees who utilize the health insurance offered by the county and the plan has a $4,000 deductible. Commissioner Bennett presented quotes from Farm Bureau agent Glen Parsons of Philip for GAP insurance. The GAP insurance would cover part of the deductible and would cost approximately $998 per month. Bennett proposed the possibility of offering GAP insurance instead of employee raises. Wilson stated that there are over 30 county employees and only 16 are on the group health policy. Those who do not have county health insurance would not eligible for the GAP insurance and would not receive that type of wage increase. No action was taken. Wilson stated that County Treasurer Cindy Willert had three parcels of property that were taken on tax deed and need to be sold at public auction. The commissioners set the auction to be held at the next meeting on October 1, along with other surplus items. Motion carried to go into executive session, with Johnston present, to discuss a bill that was presented at 11:28 a.m. Returning to open session at 11:32 a.m., a motion was made by Bonenberger and seconded by Bennett to pay $125 for an employee physical and suggest that the employee be responsible for the remaining balance. Wilson questioned whether Bennett should second the motion according to Robert’s Rule of Order and Bennett responded, it’s fine. Motion carried. Bills were presented and reviewed. Motion carried to deny two billings; one for a magazine subscription and another from Clinic Laboratory for an unauthorized autopsy. Shortly after 11:30 a.m. the hearing was opened for the consideration of adding a section of road to the county highway system. The road addition petition was submitted by Vona Fite. The section of road for consideration was south from Highway 248 to the Fite residence. Discussion was held on whether this section was considered a road or a driveway. It was stated that since the road only led to a residence, it was a driveway. Motion carried to deny the road addition to the highway system. A pipeline easement was approved for Veryl Prokop for a water line to be installed across CS 80 (Red Stone Road). A petition was presented from Jeff Willert requesting 3/4 of a mile of road be added to the highway system.

Porch is Wright Brothers Master Pilot
by Del Bartels Boyd L. Porch, Kadoka, was presented the Wright Brothers Master Pilot Award by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), September 8, during a South Dakota Pilots Association (SDPA) meeting in Spearfish. The FAA honored Porch for 50 accident free years of flying and presented him with a plaque and a blue ribbon package of his accomplishments and records over his flying career. The SDPA presented Porch’s wife, Pat, with a plaque and the FAA presented a pin for her support of him being a pilot. “I was really pleased when they handed me the plaque. I was expecting a piece of paper,” said B. Porch, a veterinarian in Kadoka. There are many stringent requirements to earning the award. The main one are the pilot must have 50 years of documented United States piloting experience, the entire time holding a Civil Aviation Authority or FAA pilot certificate. Porch’s three letters of recommendation from fellow pilots were written by Southwest Airlines pilot Brian Brost, Sioux Falls, and Vern VanderMay and Marsha Sumpter, both of Kadoka. Porch was told by Steve Hamilton, with the SDPA, that there are only about 30 such recognized pilots in South Dakota. “The whole process has been a lot of fun,” said his wife, Pat. “It was a great experience to look back over all the flying experiences.” Back in 1994, she gave Boyd a gift certificate to the River of No Return Flying School in Challis, Idaho. Boyd wrote in his flying history that since that time, he has flown into the mountain strips of Idaho three times, including a camping trip with his wife to a remote airstrip at the confluence of Moose Creek and the Selway River. He wrote that it was very beautiful and exciting for a flatlander like himself. “Some guys can’t get their wives to go with them, but Pat was always willing and did a lot of traveling with me. We’ve flown quite a little bit,” said Porch. Such trips include to Denver, Colo., Saulte Ste. Marie, Mich., Missoula, Mont., and Wichita, Kan. Times, though, have changed a bit. “We used to not have them, but now Global Positioning Systems are wonderful. You just

It reads, “In recognition of your contribution to building and maintaining the safest aviation system in the world through practicing and promoting safe aircraft flight operations for more than 50 consecutive years. --courtesy photos follow the line,” explained Porch. “Got into a snowstorm down by Martin one time, that was kind of scary,” exclaimed Porch, “but I’ve been pretty cautious about flying. Two things can be dangerous – horses and airplanes – they both can hurt you if you’re not careful. There was a time when there was no vet in Philip and I was pretty much the only one between Chamberlain and Rapid City. That was the excuse, but the truth could come out,” joked Porch, who admitted he just loves to fly every chance he gets. A brief summary of Porch’s piloting history was read at the presentation by Steve Hoogerhyde, FAA safety team program manager – operations. “In 1958, Boyd and his brother took flying lessons in Martin, S.D., and after only eight hours of instruction they both soloed around the Martin Airport. “Boyd’s brother purchased a Piper J-3 with an 85 horsepower engine for only $850. On one occasion, Boyd flew to Brookings, ran low on fuel and landed in a farmer’s pasture near Plankinton to purchase five dollars of fuel from the farmer. The farmer may have thought Boyd was an escapee from the school for juvenile delinquents at Plankinton with a story as unbe-

lievable as that, until he saw the plane sitting in the pasture. The following summer, the plane was traded to Cecil Ice for a 135 HP Super Cub. “After completing college at South Dakota State University in pre-veterinary medicine, Porch was accepted into Iowa State University, and after receiving his degree, he set up practice in Murdo, S.D. “In 1975, Boyd began wheat farming and realized that it was not practical to own a Cessna 185 and a four-wheel drive tractor concurrently. He bought and sold several aircraft until 1994 when he purchased a Piper Pacer from Cecil Ice. To this day, Boyd and his wife still travel extensively to attend Piper conventions and visit children, grandchildren and friends. “Flying has been an important part of Boyd’s life and he considers himself fortunate to have flown for his own veterinary practice. He has been flying for 53 plus years and has never had an accident. Boyd is hoping to fly for many more years.”

In life, an “account at the bank” can be a relative thing
God does not make grandmothers like He once did. At least not like MY grandmother. Grandmother never trusted such things as banks with her money. Someone once told my grandmother, “If you would put your money in the bank, they would pay you interest.” With a confused look on her face she responded, “I have enough interest in my money, nobody else needs to bother about it.” That was that! After my grandfather died, my wife and I had the opportunity to take grandma out for supper. It was a delightful restaurant and we thought it would be a real treat for her. More than once, I had to keep her from getting up and serving coffee to the rest of the people in the restaurant. After all, she did that at the church suppers. Why not here. “I’ve got two good legs,” she protested. Then came time to pay the check and the waiter brought the check and laid it in front of me. I immediately took a credit card out of my wallet and laid it on the check. I could tell grandma had never seen a credit card before. “Put that away,” she said. “I believe that man wants you to pay for our supper. Don’t you have any money?” “I’m paying for our supper with my credit card,” I explained. “Oh, dear,” she moaned. “You know I don’t believe in cards. Cards are of the devil, and I have never had a deck of cards in my house. I’m a little surprised that you, a minister, would be fooling around with such things of the devil.” She insisted we tip the waiter in “good ole American cash.” I am not sure if grandma ever really understood the credit card. She bought nothing on credit and did not accept credit. Everything had to be done in cash. She often quoted the scripture verse that says, “Owe no man any thing . . .” (Romans 13:8 KJV), which she took quite literally. As grandma got older, she began to rethink the business of opening a bank account. Without telling anyone, she decided to go to the bank and open an account. She had saved up $50 for this purpose. Grandma nervously entered the bank and walked up to the man sitting at the desk marked “New Accounts.” “Good morning, Ma’am. I’m Gary Goodman. How can I help you today?” The man seemed pleasant enough, and grandma thought entrusting him with the delicate job at hand was probably safe. “I wanna open an account,” she mumbled. “Fine. I’ll get you all set up. It won’t take but a few minutes.” With that, he took out some papers and laid them on his desk in front of grandma. “Now,” he said, “let’s begin. What is your name?” She told him. “O.K. What is your address?” “What?” “What is your address?” “Why do you need to know that?” “I’m just filling out the form, Ma’am.” The young man a little confused with her hesitancy said, “We can come back to that. What is your date of birth?” Grandma’s face turned a little red. “What do you want to know that for,” she gasped? “I’m just filling out the forms. Can you give me your telephone number?” That did it for grandma. She got up from her seat and looked him right in the face and said, “Young man, I don’t know who you think you are, but I am not interested in your advances. I’m old enough to be your mother. You ought to be ashamed.” Just then the manager of the bank walked by. “Mary, what are you doing here?” The manager quickly assessed the situation and told the young man he would take care of this customer and tried to console my grandmother. “I don’t know what’s gotten into young folk these days,” she whispered. Barely concealing his manager his smile he said, “I’ll take care of you, Mary,” he assured her. He knew all the information about her and quickly filled in the paper work and walked grandma to the teller for her first deposit. Grandma handed the teller a crumpled $50 bill. The teller took it and gave her a deposit receipt. “Where’s my money?” grandma demanded. “It’s safe in the bank, Ma’am.” “How do you know my money from everyone else’s?” “The money is all deposited in the bank, and if you need any, all you do is write a check.” She showed grandma how to write out a check. By now grandma was confused and more than a little exasperated. Quickly grandma wrote out a check for $50 and handed it back to the teller. “You’re withdrawing all your money?” “Yes.” The teller counted out $50 and handed it to her. Grandma looked at the teller and said, “No. I want MY money.” The teller retrieved the crumpled $50 bill and handed it to grandma. As she walked out, the teller heard her mumble, “What a crazy way to run business. No wonder banks fail.” There is only one sure account I can bank on. Jesus said, “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:” (Matthew 6:19-20 KJV).

Jackson County Commissioners meet
Continued from front page Applications were reviewed for the highway department positions. No action was taken since the applicants did not have any experience.

Olney left executive and later the commissioners returned to open session at 2:33 p.m. Motion carried to accept the resignation of Olney as highway superintendent. A separate motion carried to advertise the position. Another motion carried to offer the highway superintendent position to Aaron Richardson on an intern basis at a yearly salary of $33,000, with a 90-day probationary period. Discussion was held on whether Richardson, who currently resides at Long Valley, would need to live in the Kadoka area. Denke stated he would visit with Richardson. Bennett said he had visited with the county cell phone provider inquiring about a plan that would best suit the sheriff, deputy sheriff, highway superintendent and emergency manager. No decision was made. The 2013 budget was reviewed. The extension budget was discussed and whether the county was interested in entering into contracts with Jones, Mellette and Haakon County again. Some counties have expressed that they are not in favor of renewing the contract. Stilwell stated that he had attempted to contact SDSU to find out when the contract for the fourcounty agreement expires, but the contact person had not returned his calls. The commissioners declined a salary increase for themselves and their salary will remain at $6,980.00 per commissioner for 2013. Motions carried to approve the adjustments that were made to the health insurance figures, the extension budget and commissioners salaries.

James 1:22 Growing in Christ involves far more than just attending church, tithing, and listening to a sermon. In fact, many believers do these yet remain stagnant in Formula for Personal Growth their walk. There are two elements necessary for us to become more like Jesus: instruction and involvement. The first of these, learning truth, is vital to a healthy walk with God. Our Savior proved the importance of instruction by devoting much of His time on earth to it. The apostle Paul is another example, as he wrote letters to educate Christians about godliness. So how can we gain knowledge and understanding? One of the most important and effective ways is to read the Word of God. Scripture instructs us that just as newborns crave milk, we are to desire His Word so that we might grow. I pray your spiritual thirst will become insatiable. Yet simply listening to the truth does not mean that we've acquired it. I know many people who love attending Bible studies and expanding their knowledge base, but their lives remain unchanged. Just as today's passage teaches, we have to apply the Word to our lives. Even so, actual growth requires more than merely inputting information. It requires action. James 2:26 states, "For just as the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead." Are we careless hearers, deceived into thinking that we're growing? Or are we listening intently and abiding in the truth? If we're truly maturing, our lives will be increasingly Christlike, and our desires will align more closely with God's heart. Make sure that you are listening and responding to His truth.

Healthy Crock Pot Ideas Long working days combined with extra activities don’t always allow us enough time to prepare tasty, healthy meals when we get home. Consider preparing meals in your crock pot (also known as a slow cooker); it allows you to just fix it and forget it until meal time. There are many benefits to using crock pots. They allow easy, one-step preparation. Just add the ingredients and cook. Because the slow cooker doesn’t allow steam to escape, the food inside retains moisture. Ingredients shouldn’t dry out or burn. Most meat and vegetable combinations can cook for 8 to 10 hours without attention. Another benefit of crock pot cooking is that it can improve the nutritional content of our food. The outcome of cooking leaner, less expensive cuts of meat with moist, long cooking times is very tender meats and less shrinkage. Skirt steak, shoulder or leg cuts are examples of cuts of meat that can

offer a savings on your grocery bill. A crock pot can be used for a variety of healthy and satisfying recipes, including soups, pot roasts or poultry, stews, casseroles, and desserts. For crock pot recipes that use condensed soups, plan to use lower-sodium and lower-fat versions. Since vegetables cook slower than meat in the moist heat of the crock pot, place root vegetables such as carrots and potatoes (cut into small pieces of equal size) in the bottom of the crock pot. Add tender vegetables like tomatoes and zucchini during the last 45 minutes of cooking time, so they don’t overcook. Add more flavor during the cooking process by using dried leaf herbs instead of ground herbs. Only fill the crock pot half to two-thirds full. The food will not cook properly if the appliance is filled to the brim. Try to resist the temptation to lift the lid of the crock pot to peek at your food during the cooking process. It is estimated that the temperature drops 10 degrees each time the lid is removed, adding about 20 minutes to the cooking time, since it takes that long to recover the temperature. As you become more familiar with crock pot cooking, you will be able to adapt family favorite meals to crock pot cooked meals. When choosing recipes to adapt, choose recipes that take at least 45 minutes to cook; these recipes often include ingredients that hold up to long cooking times. To time an adapted recipe for the crock pot, estimate 3 to 4 hours on low for every hour of conventional cooking. For many busy individuals, knowing that a healthy meal is waiting at home helps avoid lesshealthy convenience meals after work.

Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
Swarmed
We had a plague of fruit flies one day earlier this week. It started off slowly but built all day until we were inundated with the tiny airborne critters. You normally expect a few insects to get in through cracks or to sneak in through doors when you open them. When a swarm appears inside, however, you know you either have a major breach in your defenses or you have something rotten around that is providing a breeding ground. Either way, there is a problem that needs to be addressed. Well, when wife Corinne noticed more fruit flies than usual this week, our attention was first drawn to a bag of apples someone had just given us from their fruit tree. They were in a plastic bag sitting on top of the freezer. When I inspected them, one or two flies were sighted. I took the whole bag outside and moved one apple at a time to a clean bag, but there was just one little rotten spot on one apple which didn’t seem big enough to harbor much of anything. Nevertheless, if I let the fruit sit around very long, it would attract bugs and cause a problem. As a result, I spent an hour or two making a large apple crunch for later use. I carefully disposed of the peelings, cores, etc. and waited to see what would happen. The apples weren’t the problem. The flies kept multiplying. I was making some bread at the time, and fruit flies adore bread dough. They came from all around to either sit on the dough, my hands, or the counter. I’m sure I killed two to three dozen of them, and they still kept coming. By this time, I was getting irritated and went on the war path. Flies were found and swatted at a goodly rate, and this did reduce their numbers somewhat. I was aware I hadn’t gotten to the root of the problem just yet, but swatting everything in sight made me feel better. What worried me was my knowledge that fruit flies reproduce themselves very quickly and in great abundance. That’s why they are so popular in the study of genetics. You don’t have to wait very long to see what happens when you mate a green-eyed fly to a brown eyed or whatever. A female, you see, may lay up to 400 eggs at a time. Those hatch within a day, and, slightly over a week later, the females that hatched can themselves lay eggs. This is in contrast to cattle which take about two years to reproduce themselves. A heifer calf needs to grow about a year before being bred, and gestation is about nine months which adds another year. So, it takes almost two years to see the results of your breeding program in cattle while it only takes a little over a week with fruit flies. I once raised some coturnix quail which weren’t as fast as fruit flies, but were fairly amazing for birds. Their eggs only took a bit over two weeks to hatch, and the females that were hatched started laying eggs themselves in about two months. You could start the year with five quail and end it with thousands. Contrast that with elephants which have a gestation period of almost two years with young females not being able to reproduce until they are teenagers. Patience would be required to raise a herd of elephants. Anyway, after swatting and thinking all day, it finally occurred to me in the wee hours of the night that there was a bag of potatoes in a cardboard box under a table. As soon as I remembered that, I knew I was on the right track. As a result, I carefully lifted the closed box and carried it outside. When I lifted the lid, there was lots of activity--flies everywhere. Later in the day I took that box out onto the prairie and liberated the rotten potatoes and any larvae they contained. We could live on powdered potatoes for a few days and keep all fruit refrigerated. Yesterday, then, was closer to normal with only a few of the pesky flies hovering around my head. Most of those were swatted and done away with. Today was even better. I only saw and killed one of the nasty critters. In the future, potatoes are apt to be high on my suspect list when fruit flies start appearing. I also figure I can get rid of a lot of them if necessary by rolling out a bit of bread dough on the counter and waiting nearby with a swatter in hand. For now, however, the plague seems to be over which is quite a relief. The geneticists can keep their silly fruit flies. I don’t need them.

Mary Johnston just returned from spending about two weeks in Minnesota visiting sisters and other relatives. She mostly stayed with her sister, Lela, at Milaca, MN, and visited other people from there. She visited her brother and various nieces and nephews around Ogilvie and her other sister, Jenene, at Waseca. She was originally taken to Sioux Falls by her son, Larry, and picked up by Lela. On the way back, Lela brought her to Sioux Falls and her son, Lonny, picked her up. Mary said Lela still has about 70 head of horses plus six stallions. These take a lot of care and Mary helped with feed and water, but she didn’t help with cleaning the barn. The sisters were originally going to bring Mary all the way home and stay a bit, but Jenene got ill before that could happen so their visit here had to be postponed. Larry and Joy Dolezal went to Belle Fourche last week to visit their daughter, Carmen Nemec, and family. Joy said that Scott Drabek’s wife has a fabric store there in Belle which Carmen and she visited. They probably made Scott’s wife very happy since they needed quite a bit of cloth for their quilting efforts, etc. Aaron, Michelle and Tyrel Mansfield were visited this weekend by Michelle’s folks, Bill and Pauline Jones, from Rapid City. They have also had Michelle’s cousin, Tyler, staying with them some the last week and helping with the work. He, too, is from Rapid City. The Mansfields planned to return to Rapid City with Bill and Pauline to retrieve a pickup that’s been there getting repaired. Jim and Fayola Mansfield traveled to Hulett, WY, on Tuesday to
Grouse hunters asked to take fire precautions
The South Dakota hunting seasons for grouse, prairie chicken and partridge open Sept. 15 and the Game, Fish and Parks Department is asking that hunters keep safety foremost in mind. Fire danger has been extremely high throughout the summer, and remains so throughout much of the state. With that in mind, hunters are being asked to take precautions to help prevent range fires. GFP asks hunters to take these basic precautions: Equip their vehicles with a large fire extinguisher, shovel and water they’ll need to fight a fire. Extinguish cigarettes with water or dirt or use an ashtray inside their vehicle. Limit vehicle traffic to designated roads and trails. Never park a vehicle over dry grass. In addition, hunters can provide an extra safety measure by carrying a cell phone and being alert for possible fires. If smoke or fire is seen, hunters should report the fire location to local law enforcement or call 911 immediately.
watch their grandson, Thomas, play in a football game. They took in another one of his games a week or two ago and have tentative plans to head to Wyoming again this week for another game. Jim, Georgann and Jami Addison took in the Jones County homecoming on Friday. Jami goes to school in Murdo this year and naturally wanted to take it all in. They also attended the parade, pancake feed, football game and dance plus a yard sale. Georgann and Jami have also spent the last week house and babysitting for friends who wanted to go on vacation. On Sunday, Georgann went to Wall to get in a bit of barrel racing. Jami, however, was tired from her weekend and decided to stay home and take a nap. Jim Addison also reported seeing what he termed a “traveling bike museum.” As he was driving east from his place near Belvidere to 1880 Town on the service road, he passed about 70 or more old or antique motorcycles that were making a run from Boston to the West Coast. Some of these were World War II vintage and quite interesting to see. One rider even had a Sears motorcycle, and those haven’t been made for quite a long time now. There are problems with the older machines, of course, and one fellow had quite a time getting his started again at 1880 Town but eventually managed it. Bunny Green spent several days in Ft. Pierre this last week. She went there with her daughter, Darlene Wiedemer, of Murdo and they stayed with Darlene’s daughter, Ruthie. Ruthie and family have recently moved from a trailer court that is too close to the river that had flooding problems. Now they are on higher ground with a good view of a grove of trees and other pretty areas. The gals did some shopping before returning to Murdo where, unfortunately, Bunny entertained the flu or some such illness for a couple of days. She said she was “sick as a dog” and couldn’t stay warm no matter how many sweaters and blankets she used. She did, despite not feeling well, help cut up and freeze about 40 pounds of Colorado peaches. On Sunday, Darlene brought Bunny back home, and Bunny said she was feeling pretty good by then. Bunny said she had quite a good time except for when she didn’t feel well. Betty Kusick was visited on Sunday by her daughter, Loretta Schreiber, and her husband, Lawrence, of Quinn. The visitors brought dinner with them. They also brought Betty a new cell phone. They figured she goes fishing often enough that it would be good to have a way for her to call for help if she needed it. They gave Betty instruction on how to use the new phone which Betty hopes will help her use it okay. Betty also said her son, Kenny, recently caught a fish that was of a kind he wasn’t familiar with. He hoped it wasn’t a piranha like someone else had caught in a local dam which raised questions as to how on earth it ever got there. Anyway, Kenny took pictures of the unknown fish and hopes he can figure out what it was eventually. Kenny has since reported that the fish was a European Rudd. Jo and Jory Rodgers were policing the area around JR’s on Sunday. Jo said that people exiting the freeway there seem inclined to throw out plastic bottles and other trash to the extent that it needs to be cleaned up every week or two. They had a small wagon full of trash they’d already picked up.

Marjorie Anne Letellier - 462 6228
The bee who gets the honey doesn’t hang around the hive. Approximately 75 people turned out to tour the beautiful yard at the Gale Letellier home on Saturday, September 8. JoAnn also served a delicious dinner to the 30 Master Gardeners from all over the state before the tour. Folks attended the yard show from Rapid City, Hermosa, Pierre, Martin, White River, Kadoka, Long Valley, Philip, Midland, and of course, Norris. Among the Master Gardeners attending were Doug Hesnard and his mother and sister of Hermosa. They are distant relatives of Gale’s on his mother’s side. Doug’s mom remembered being in the house 64 years ago! A week ago on Sunday, LuAnne Beckwith took Maxine Allard home from church and enjoyed a good visit with her former teacher. Marjorie Popkes, Carol Ferguson and Irene Kaufman were in Valentine, NE, on Tuesday to finalize arrangements for Irene’s new apartment there. With the help of Howard, Nette, Beau, and Chris Heinert and Ed, Carol, and Jesse Ferguson, most of Irene Kaufman’s larger furniture was packed up and loaded on Friday evening. Early Saturday morning, with Ed and Carol bringing the loaded the horse trailer, Jesse driving another pickup load, and Irene in her weighted-down car, the group completed the final leg of the process. Others helping to unload and set up were Pete and Marla Ferguson and Gene and Marjorie Popkes. We wish Irene the best, but can’t help but feel the absence of another fine citizen in our tiny community. I am sure Norris will always be a part of Irene because she sure was a part of Norris for many years. Tuesday lunch guests at the home of Gale Letellier were Mel and Tammy Glover of Rapid City. They enjoyed touring the yard since they couldn’t make it last Saturday. The James Letelliers went to Pierre on Tuesday and visited in the Paul Beckwith home. They accompanied the Beckwiths to the volleyball game at Sunshine Bible Academy against White Lake that evening. Their granddaughter, Cassie Beckwith, is a sophomore on the team. The best part of the whole trip was driving home in rain, all the way home from Murdo. We heard reports here at Norris of folks receiving from over an half an inch to three quarters of moisture that evening. Thank you, Lord. Gale and JoAnn Letellier attended the visitation for Leila Dithmer, 92, in Kadoka on Tuesday evening. This area certainly lost another one of our outstanding gals. She was quite a lady. Our hearts go out to her family. May the Lord comfort your hearts at this sad time of loss. June Ring went to Winner and met up with Ethel Evans and Donna Duffy. The ladies traveled on to Aberdeen for the Extension Club CFEL convention held on Friday and Saturday. The state cultural arts contest is held during the convention. June was thrilled to report that she won the judges’ choice award for her story on the old Emmanuel Lutheran Church. June wrote the story for the South Dakota History Conference last year. It tells the story of the folks building the sod church out on the prairie. The St. John Lutheran Church at Norris is a branch of that church. As you travel down SD Highway 63 east of town you will pass the Emmanuel Cemetery beside where the old church stood. The story won over all 107 cultural arts items entered from the different extension districts in the state. At the state extension convention the Norris Extension Club was also given special recognition for the amount of reading they do. Jean Kary was also recognized for writing her 50,000-word novel in one month project. Audra Baldwin visited Maxine Allard on Thursday and picked up some things Maxine had saved for her. That afternoon Ken Koistenen of Pierre visited Maxine and checked on his trail cameras he has out there. It is so dry that folks are telling of the variety of wild life coming to the watering holes. That would make a trail camera real fun to have. Friday morning Ed and Carol Ferguson went to Rapid City to attend the celebration of life for Ed’s cousin, John Parke, who passed away on September 11. Saturday, Christine Dunham hosted a baby shower at the Norris Township Hall. The shower was for Jarrod and Lacey Dunham’s baby, who is expected to arrive in December. Jarrod and Lacey were unable to attend because he didn’t get enough leave to come to South Dakota. Jarrod is serving in the United States Army and is stationed in Fort Hood, TX. Jarrod got tickets to a Dallas Cowboys game so Travis and Mandy WoodenKnife are planning to deliver the gifts to them and go to the game. James and Marjorie traveled to Faith on Saturday for the 50 year reunion of her 1962 class. Nine members of the class gathered at the St. Joseph Catholic Church Fellowship Hall in the afternoon for lots of reminiscing and fun and then attended the banquet at the school gym that evening. This was held for the classes ending in two. They also enjoyed a tour of the beautiful new school. One of Marjorie’s classmates and best friends still teachs there. We discovered that they can still hear the superintendent coming down the hall (like they could in the old school) so some things really haven’t changed. It was a very enjoyable time for of us who gathered that day and we vowed to do it again soon. School News: Norris school is observing homecoming week this week.
•Monday is pajama day. •Tuesday is color day and elementary is yellow. •Wednesday is Cowboy Day •Thursday is Twin Day •Friday is Purple & Gold Day The parade is Friday afternoon and Norris School plans to have a float for the entire school. ~~~~~ The South Central Master Gardeners Club was well represented at the State Master Gardeners Update held in Brookings over the weekend. The gals enjoyed seminars, meetings and a banquet before returning home on Sunday evening. Those attending from the area were: Donita Denke of Long Valley, JoAnn Letellier of Norris, Noma Sazma of Valentine, Ila Tucker of Wood, Donna Adrian, Jeannine Woodard and Rose West of White River, LuAnne Noeske of Pierre and Pat Neilsen and Mabel Schmid of Winner. JoAnn Letellier was surprised to be one of the ten Master Gardeners receiving a gold star badge. Congratulations! Robert and Sharon Ring were in the Black Hills for appointments on Thursday and Friday and were overnight guests of their daughter, Deb, in Spearfish. Robert, Sharon and Deb Ring were among the crowd attending the beautiful wedding of Courtney Totton and Jeff Tyrell in Chamberlain on Saturday afternoon. Erna and Linda Totton of Pierre also attended the wedding and then traveled on to Parker to visit Gert Ring who is moving to Texas to be near her daughter, Judy, and family. Saturday afternoon Evan and Dorothy Bligh headed to Rapid City to attend the Rapid City Cathedral’s 50th high school reunion supper for the class of 1962 at the Canyon Lake Chophouse. Dorothy enjoyed getting reacquainted with some of the folks she hadn’t seen for 50 years. Sunday afternoon visitors at the Gale Letellier home and touring the yard were Dennis and Sena Lauritsen and Ron and Cora Lookabill of Wood. Have a great week.

Recommendations for preventing Hantavirus
South Dakotans should be aware of the risk of Hantavirus as temperatures cool off and rodents move indoors, says a state health official. Hantavirus is caused by a virus carried by rodents. It can result in Hantavirus Pulmonary Syndrome, which fills the lungs with fluid and can lead to respiratory failure. Deer mice are the primary carriers of the virus that causes the disease. “Routine rodent control measures are particularly important this time of year as rodents look to move inside,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist for the Department of Health. “The risk for Hantavirus is statewide and year round. It can happen wherever there are rodent-infested buildings.” People get infected when they breathe in aerosolized virus from the droppings, urine or saliva of mice. Symptoms usually appear within two to four weeks of exposure and include fatigue, a fever of 101-104°, muscle aches, cough, vomiting and diarrhea. Seek medical care immediately if you have fever, deep muscle aches, and severe shortness of breath after exposure to mice. South Dakota has reported 15 cases of Hantavirus and five deaths since 1993 when the disease was first detected, including one death earlier this year. More than 570 cases have been reported in the U.S. since 1993, including a cluster of nine cases this summer at Yosemite National Park in California that has resulted in three deaths. To control mice and prevent Hantavirus infection: Seal gaps around roofs, attics, basements, windows, doors, foundations, vents, air conditioners, under sinks and other pipes. Set traps where you find mice, nesting materials, urine or droppings. Wear rubber or plastic gloves to clean up dead mice or their droppings. Spray dead mice, urine or droppings with a disinfectant or a mixture of 1½ cups household bleach and one gallon of water. Soak for five minutes, wipe up with a paper towel and put everything in a plastic bag and seal. Put in a second bag and seal that as well. Clean the area with a disinfectant or bleach solution. Don't use vacuum cleaners or brooms, since they can create aerosols. Wash gloved hands with soap and water and wash again after taking off gloves. Keep your house and yard free of junk and rubbish to limit food sources and nesting sites for mice. Use thick plastic or metal containers with tight lids for garbage and for storing pet food. Learn more about Hantavirus and its prevention at http://doh.sd.gov/hantavirus orhttp://www.cdc.gov/hantavirus/in dex.html.

Kadoka Kougars meet Wall Eagles head on, claims 28-7 victory
Kadoka Area 28 Wall 7 The Kougars traveled to Wall last Friday to take on the Eagles in another tough conference game. This was a hard-fought game and the Kougars were able to bring home another win as we defeated the Eagles 28-7. The game began with the Eagles starting off the scoring as they went ahead 7-0 early in the first quarter. Later in the quarter we answered with our own touchdown as Chandlier Sudbeck ran in from 7 yards out to make the score 7-6. In the second quarter we scored one more time as Chandlier Sudbeck ran in for a second touchdown, this time from 50 yards out. He also was able to run in and convert the 2-point conversion to put us up 14-7, which is where it stayed until the third quarter. Our defense continued to stifle Wall’s running and passing game in the second half as we were able to pitch a second half shut out on a football team that has a lot of speed with a couple of very talented running backs. We held Wall to only 112 yards on the ground and 69 yards passing. As much speed as they have on the field, this stats alone speaks volumes about our defensive effort. The third quarter we were able to put more points on the board as Kenar VanderMay hooked up with Logan Christensen on a 25 yard pass play, and Kenar hooked up with Logan Ammons for the twopoint conversion to put us up 22-7 in the third quarter. With about six minutes to go in the game Kenar hooked up one more time with Logan Christensen on a 5 yard pass to make the score 28-7. The Eagles threatened to score toward the end of the game, but our defense stiffened one more time so the game finished with a final score of 28-7. This week we clicked really well offensively as we probably played our best game of the year to this point. Chandlier Sudbeck had an amazing night running the ball. He carried it 20 times for 152 yards and 2 touchdowns, with one 2-point conversion. Our offensive line led by Clint Stout at center along with Gavin DeVries, Herbie O’Daniel, Logan Christensen and Logan Ammons, once again did a really nice job as they opened up a lot of holes for our running backs. Kenar VanderMay had 16 carries for 48 yards, Logan Christensen had 2 carries for 21 yards, Chance Knutson had 6 carries for 5 yards and Klay O’Daniel had 1 carry for 2 yards. Our passing game was pretty effective this week. Kenar was 9-14 for 75 yards and 2 touchdowns and one 2-point conversion. Receiving wise, Logan Christensen had 4 catches for 35 yards and 2 touchdowns. Logan Ammons had 3 catches for 33 yards with one 2point conversion and Chandlier Sudbeck had 2 catches for 7 yards. The defense this week was led once again by Clint Stout as he recorded a game high 15 tackles and he also had one interception. Other defensive stats include Kenar VanderMay with 14 tackles, Logan Christensen had 9, Sam Pretty Bear 8, Logan Ammons 7, Chance Knutson 5, Klay O’Daniel and Chris Anderson each had 4, Lane Patterson 3, Chandlier Sudbeck 2, and Dylan Riggins and Herbie O’Daniel each had 1. Chris Anderson recorded 2 big sacks, and True Buchholz and Logan Christensen also each recorded 1 sack as well. The boys did a really good job this week. We took care of the ball, we tackled well, we blocked well, and we feel like if we do those three things right we’re going to give ourselves a good chance to win. We haven’t beaten Wall in a few years, and we haven’t beaten them in Wall for a long time, so this was a special win for our team. Once again this week doesn’t get any easier as a very experienced Jones County team comes to town to play us for our 2012 homecoming football game. Jones County has played some really tough games so far this year as they squeaked by Philip and lost to White River and Colome. They’ve got a team full of experience and talent and will pose as a huge challenge for us this week. Look for it to be another great night of football in Kadoka! Game time this week is at 6:30 p.m. Hope to see you all there!
“C” team Volleyball
The Lady Kougar “C” team lost a three-set match with New Underwood on Thursday night. We came out strong the first set and won 25-17. Kassie Hicks served well in this match for the team. The next set, the Lady Kougars fell behind quickly and could not recover. Even though Miranda Dale was able to serve 8 straight points, the lead was just too big to overcome. We lost that set 19-25. In the 3rd set, we lost 6-15. We have shown an improvement over the season. We are working hard at communicating on the court and making better passes. Our serving has also improved in the past couple of weeks. Our next match is September 25 against Bennett County. --by Laurie Prichard

Chandlier Sudbeck Football
Chandlier is a tremendous leader. He works very hard in the off season, lifting weights, wrestling, running and doing whatever he can to be better. In the big win over Wall he carried the ball 20 times for 152 yards and 2 touchdowns and one 2-point conversion. Chandlier has carried the ball 58 times for 450 yards and scored 5 touchdowns, and he’s also had 1 touchdown receiving so far this year. He’s averaging 7.8 yards per carry. Chandlier is a good student, a great kid and he’s very deserving of this honor.

Back-to-School tips for students and parents paying college expenses, IRS summertime tax tip 2012-25
Whether you’re a recent high school graduate going to college for the first time or a returning student, it will soon be time to head to campus, and payment deadlines for tuition and other fees are not far behind. The IRS offers some tips about education tax benefits that can help offset some college costs for students and parents. Typically, these benefits apply to you, your spouse or a dependent for whom you claim an exemption on your tax return. •American Opportunity Credit. This credit, originally created under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, is still available for 2012. The credit can be up to $2,500 per eligible student and is available for the first four years of post secondary education at an eligible institution. Forty percent of this credit is refundable, which means that you may be able to receive up to $1,000, even if you don't owe any taxes. Qualified expenses include tuition and fees, course related books, supplies and equipment. •Lifetime Learning Credit. In 2012, you may be able to claim a Lifetime Learning Credit of up to $2,000 for qualified education expenses paid for a student enrolled in eligible educational institutions. There is no limit on the number of years you can claim the Lifetime Learning Credit for an eligible student. You can claim only one type of education credit per student in the same tax year. However, if you pay college expenses for more than one student in the same year, you can choose to take credits on a per-student, per-year basis. For example, you can claim the American Opportunity Credit for one student and the Lifetime Learning Credit for the other student. •Student loan interest deduction. Generally, personal interest you pay, other than certain mortgage interest, is not deductible. However, you may be able to deduct interest paid on a qualified student loan during the year. It can reduce the amount of your income subject to tax by up to $2,500, even if you don’t itemize deductions. These education benefits are subject to income limitations, and may be reduced or eliminated depending on your income. For more information, visit the Tax Benefits for Education Information Center at IRS.gov or check out Publication 970, Tax Benefits for Education, which can be downloaded at IRS.gov or ordered by calling 800TAX-FORM (800-829-3676).

A food, farm and jobs bill as soon as possible
After spending much of August out of Washington, Congress is back – and rural America is watching closely, hoping for passage of a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill as soon as possible. With farmers facing the worst drought in decades this summer and the current Farm Bill set to expire on September 30 of this year, time is running out for Congress to act. You and I both know the stakes couldn’t be higher. Since early this summer, when the Senate passed a comprehensive, multi-year Food Farm and Jobs Act, the Administration has expressed its preference for such comprehensive legislation and urged Congress to act before the current law expires. Let me tell you why: A comprehensive, multiyear Food, Farm and Jobs Bill would ensure a strong safety net for our producers. This includes disaster assistance for those who have been impacted by the drought – especially by providing help for livestock and specialty crop producers and providing a new support system for dairy producers. Just as important, a new multiyear bill would ensure certainty for all farmers and ranchers in the coming years. It would help USDA to continue growing agricultural trade. We’re in the four best years for agricultural exports in our history, and we can’t afford to stop now. It would enable USDA to continue the record investments we’ve made since 2009 in America’s small towns and rural communities. USDA could continue to modernize water and electric utilities for millions of Americans, expand broadband access, and help rural businesses grow. And it would give us tools to continue expanding the production of advanced biofuels and biobased manufacturing, creating more good jobs that can’t be shipped overseas. It would allow USDA to continue the groundbreaking agricultural research that’s ongoing today, both here and at universities across America – important research the likes of which helps agriculture through tough times such as the current drought. A Food, Farm and Jobs Bill would enhance USDA conservation efforts, ensuring that vital conservation programs that enable rural Americans to protect the land and water don’t expire. It would enable USDA to continue helping millions of American families – folks who are working hard, playing by the rules, but still having trouble making ends meet – to provide food for their children. And if Congress acts, we’ll be able to continue our efforts to ensure the safest food supply on earth. As America recovers from economic recession, rural Americans are leading the way and USDA is supporting their efforts. It’s not time to let up now, and that’s why we need Congress to pass a Food, Farm and Jobs Bill as soon as possible. --Agriculture Secretary Vilsack
Fighting for a Farm Bill
South Dakotans continue to struggle though one of the worst droughts in decades, but Washington, D.C. continues to stall on a Farm Bill. I’m fed up with Washington excuses. We need to get a Farm Bill done now, and that’s why I’m helping lead the effort to force a vote on this important legislation. I recently signed a petition that would force a vote on the Farm Bill if 218 House members sign it. I was the first Republican to do so and I am encouraging my colleagues on both sides of the aisle to do the same. I am also working to educate other members on just how important a Farm Bill is to every American that wants to put affordable food on the table. At a “Farm Bill Now” rally on Capitol Hill, I was one of four congressional speakers to discuss the importance of a Farm Bill. In front of hundreds of farmers and ranchers from across the nation, including many from South Dakota, I highlighted the critical role a Farm Bill plays not just to rural economies, but to our nation’s food supply and national security. If the logical “field to table” argument doesn’t work on some, I’m also taking to the House floor to tell the stories of real South Dakotans struggling from the uncertainty coming out of Washington. One couple from Houghton is especially concerned about long-term agriculture policy, because they’re hoping to pass their farming operation on to their three sons. Another couple wants to make planting decisions for their farming and ranching operation in Wall, but without a Farm Bill, they have less certainty about what the future holds for them. It is not right to leave these and other hard working Americans without certainty because too many in Washington don’t think getting a Farm Bill done is important enough right now. The Farm Bill expires at the end of this month. Getting a new one done is a top priority for me, and it should be a top priority for this Congress. Our farmers and ranchers deserve certainty, and I will keep fighting every day to make sure they get it. From holding leadership’s feet to the fire to schedule a vote, to gathering signatures for the discharge petition and continuing to educate other Members, I will not stop working to get a Farm Bill done for South Dakota. --by Rep. Kristi Noem
Rolling Put Options protect minimum selling price
For the last couple of months, many marketing advisors have advocated the use of put options to establish a minimum selling price for corn and soybeans, says Darrell Mark, Ph.D., Adjunct Professor of Economics at South Dakota State University. "This marketing strategy has advantages and disadvantages, but one of the most appealing advantages is that it protects a minimum selling price while allowing the hedger to benefit from price increases," Mark said during a recent iGrow Radio Network interview. He says one of the strategies now being discussed by marketing advisors and considered by producers in light of the continued price rally is whether to "roll" these put options to a higher strike price. "Rolling to a higher strike price creates higher minimum sale price. The mechanics of the roll are accomplished by offsetting, or selling, the put option that was originally purchased and buying a put option in the same month with a higher strike price," Mark said. He shares an example to explain how this works: Suppose that on July 20, 2012, a corn producer decided to purchase a $7.00/bu December 2012 corn put option, thinking that the corn market was reaching a high. At that time, the cost, or premium, for that put option would have been $0.30/bu. If the commission costs for trading this option totaled $0.02/bu and the producer expected the basis to be -$0.40/bu, then the minimum expected sale price (MESP) would be $6.28/bu. If December futures prices trade below $7/bu, then the put option gains intrinsic value and offsets the lower cash market price for the corn (although basis risk is still present). If December corn futures go higher, then the put premium declines but the cash grain is sold for a higher price, but the most money that could be lost by owning the put would be the total premium paid. It would be possible for the option to be worth a small amount sometime before the put expires; however, if December futures are above $7/bu when the option expires, the option premium would be virtually worthless if held until expiration. While the producer might have thought that December corn futures were setting a high back on July 20 and decided to initiate this put option hedge and establish a MESP of $6.28/bu, it turns out that crop conditions worsened and the corn market has went up about $0.20/bu through the third week of August. Even though the put option is worth much less now, this isn't necessarily a bad thing for the producer. In this case, the cash corn can be sold for a higher price and, assuming that the producer didn't hedge 100% of production, a higher overall price is realized for the crop. "Basically, it is somewhat like having auto or life insurance and not using it," Mark said. Another way though that the producer could take advantage of the price increase would be to roll the option up to a higher strike price and increase the MESP. By August 23, the $7/bu December 2012 put option was trading for about $0.10/bu, meaning that the put that is currently being held could be sold back for $0.10/bu. This would mean that this put option trade would have lost $0.20/bu, plus commission. However, the $0.10/bu is being recaptured (of the original $0.30/bu premium) and can be put towards the purchase of another put with a higher strike price. In fact, the $8/bu December 2012 corn put option was trading for about $0.40/bu on August 23. If the option position was rolled from the $7/bu strike price to the $8/bu strike price on August 23, the MESP would increase to 6.96/bu. Now, the producer has a floor selling price of nearly $7/bu for a total net premium cost of $0.60 and $0.04/bu commission. Before rolling, the floor price was $6.28/bu at a total cost of $0.32/bu. Is it worth it? "It depends on the producer's risk tolerance and market outlook," Mark said. "For a producer with a relatively bearish outlook on the corn market price during harvest this year and who is quite risk averse, this might be a good strategy to consider. For a bullish producer that is willing to have price protection that is deep out-of-themoney, doing so might not be necessary. Either producer, though, should consider what his/her goals really are for marketing. If the put option hedge was originally designed to protect a floor price that would insure a profitable price (above breakeven), then rolling to a higher strike price is only adding to hedged profit - which is always nice, but may not be necessary for some producers given the cost," Mark said. He explains that should the market continue higher, the option could be rolled higher yet again by offsetting the owned put and purchasing one with a higher strike price. "The only time you wouldn't want to do this is when the underlying futures price does not increase more than the net option premiums and added commission. Doing so would result in additional trading expenses without increasing the MESP," he said. Each week Mark shares advice with South Dakotans on the iGrow Radio Network.

Agriculture … R-CALF USA's Convention: Catalyst for Change
At the recent R-CALF USA Convention, nearly 200 attendees met to discuss the future of the independent U.S. cattle industry and Rural America, and what can be done to change the current direction of public policy. Each of RCALF USA's committees addressed the general session and then met in smaller development sessions to encourage the generation of solutions to specific challenges the U.S. cattle industry is facing. The meetings were focused around the theme, "Redirecting Our Industry." In addition to updates from the committees, R-CALF USA also welcomed several guest speakers. Ken Ivory from Utah Freedom Foundation addressed the audience during the Private Property Rights Committee Report. During the Marketing Committee Report, J. Dudley Butler, former GIPSA* Administrator, shared his work and struggle for the GIPSA rule and discussed checkoff reform and country-oforigin labeling (COOL). COOL was an important issue during the convention. Joel Joseph, Chairman of Made in the USA Foundation, and Julie Reiser, President/Co-Founder Made in the USA Certified, partnered with Mike Schultz, R-CALF USA Region VI Director and COOL Committee Chair, to discuss the recent World Trade Organization (WTO) ruling that attempts to strike-down U.S. COOL. This partnership and discussion led to the solution of filing a joint lawsuit to protect U.S. sovereignty. Immediately following the convention, R-CALF USA joined with Made in the USA Foundation and filed a lawsuit in federal district court to preserve COOL and protect U.S. sovereignty. Coalition for a Prosperous America (CPA) Board Member Dave Frengel was the featured speaker on trade. He discussed how domestic manufacturers, farmers, ranchers and workers had joined together to formulate the white paper, 21st Century Trade Principles, that is now being circulated in Congress. Frengel also led two breakout sessions providing a more interactive platform to discuss key trade issues. According to R-CALF USA Region XII Director / Vice President, and Convention Emcee, Joel Gill, "There is no way to express the spirit of camaraderie that existed throughout the entire convention and was ultimately expressed on the final evening by the sacrifice of Nick Trask during the fund raiser. "Many thanks to our sponsors and exhibitors, but most of all, thanks to our supporting members. If you were able to come, you lived the story, if not, make plans to be there next year in Pierre, S.D. Aug. 2-3. It takes every one of us to make an impact, but what an impact it is when we all work together," concluded Gill.

Bob Fanning, Plant Pathology Field Specialist • 605-842-1267 Insuring Winter Wheat for 2013 Winter wheat insurance and marketing decisions are setting up differently for the 2013 crop. The deadline to purchase or change winter wheat coverage is September 30 in South Dakota. Most wheat is insured in the state, so the choice this time of year is often related to the yield election level. Producers have until October 15 to plant winter wheat with full insurance coverage. The current price discovery period ran from August 15 to September 14 and used the Kansas City September 2013 futures price. That price averaged $8.77 per bushel (not official until Monday, September 17), which is slightly higher than the insurance prices from a year ago. The projected price determines the base for both yield protection and revenue protection coverage. Over 90% of wheat acres in South Dakota in 2011 and 2012 were covered by revenue protection. The volatility in the futures price has been lower this year than its five-year average. The lower volatility and slightly higher price level will combine to make insurance premiums lower than last year. During 2012 most wheat was insured at the 70% and 65% levels. With lower premium rates for 2013 producers may consider increasing the coverage percentage. The use of revenue protection means that most producers have adequate protection to allow some pre-harvest marketing of wheat. In the event of higher prices by harvest, revenue protection coverage increases. As producers work on their marketing plans they should keep in mind that the insurance coverage is not unlimited, being capped at 200% of the base price. Covered sales, buying out-ofthe-money call options, would be advised when marketing aggressively. Producers should also consider the harvest time basis and how it lines up with insurance. Winter wheat insurance settles to the average during July 2013 of the Kansas City September 2013 contract. The basis, figured as the cash price received by farmers in South Dakota minus the average futures price in July, has averaged $-0.71 per bushel during the past five years. Hedges will likely be most effectively placed using the September contract and factoring in a similar basis level.

Pheasant count up from 2011
Annual August pheasant brood counts in South Dakota indicate that the statewide pheasant population is up from last year, and that should equate to an excellent pheasant season this fall. Results of the survey show that pheasant numbers grew in many areas of the state, due in large part to a mild winter and ideal weather during the nesting and brood-rearing season. The pheasants-per-mile index for 2012 is 4.21, up 18 percent from the 3.57 index of 2011. "The mild winter of 2011-12 was the boost we needed for pheasant survival and reproductive potential," explained Jeff Vonk, secretary of the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks. "It goes to show that, with the combination of good habitat and the right weather conditions, pheasants can be quite prolific.” Much of the improvement in the pheasant counts came from areas of the state that had a good habitat base. "Pheasant hunting will be good across most of the state, with the traditional pheasant range once again providing excellent hunting opportunities,” Vonk said. “More than 1.5 million pheasants were harvested last year, and our counts indicate that this year will be another exceptional year for pheasant hunting in South Dakota.” Gov. Dennis Daugaard said the pheasant survey is good news for the state. “Pheasant hunting is important to the economic well-being of South Dakota, and it also helps support the strong outdoor heritage of our state,” the Governor said. The 2012 Pheasant Brood Survey Report, complete with comparisons for the different local areas, can be found online at http://gfp.sd.gov/hunting/smallgame/pheasant-outlook.aspx
