Kadoka and Midland meet for first
contest in six man football; home game
September 30.
The opening game for the Kadoka
High School six man football team will
be played at Midland on Friday after-
noon, September 23.
This will be the first season football
has been attempted by either school,
but a lively contest is expected. Coach
Forrest Jones has been working with a
squad of sixteen players since the open-
ing of school here, and much improve-
ment has been shown by the boys in the
fundamentals of the game. Starting
with absolutely no experience the boys
have shown much interest in the game
and have developed nicely, although too
much cannot be expected of their first
appearance or even their first season’s
work because they will be playing expe-
rienced teams in some of their games
this year.
Probably only twelve men will make
the trip to Midland Friday, according to
Jones, but the entire squad may see ac-
tion in the game with Cottonwood here
on September 30.
Six man football has proven a very
popular sport in the smaller schools
where the limited number of students
and the expense have prohibited these
schools from indulging in eleven man
football. The game is very similar to the
eleven man game although played
much more open and on a slightly
smaller field. The six man field is 40x80
yards, whereas the eleven man field is
50x100 yards.
Equipment was secured here by a
purchase of some suits from Philip and
a gift of some equipment from the
School of Mines at Rapid City.
A field will probably be laid out on
the baseball diamond lots for games, al-
though the boys have been using the
lots back of the Victoria Hall for a prac-
tice field.
Much interest is being developed in
football here this fall and a good crowd
is expected to be on hand to witness the
first home game with Cottonwood, Fri-
day afternoon.
First game Friday for HS Gridder, 1938
Taken from the 1964-65 Kadoka School annual.
President Bob Stout, Vice President Judy Zickrick, and Secretary-Treasurer
Roxy Stevens were elected as the constitutional officers of the 1964-65 council.
The first goal of the hard-working council was to establish the first homecoming
for Kadoka. This goal reached its climax on October 30 with the homecoming foot-
ball game with Wall and the homecoming dance and coronation that night.
Kadoka 1964-65 Student Council
Taken from the October 1965
Kadoka Press.
Roxy Stevens and Dennis Headlee,
seniors in the Kadoka High School,
were crowned last week as the home-
coming queen and king at the Kadoka
High School’s homecoming held Thurs-
day evening and Friday. Attendants to
the royalty were Mary Ann Slater, Judy
Zickrick, Bruce Brugman and Bob
Stout, all seniors.
The KHS royalty were chosen by the
high school student body in an election
two weeks ago, but the announcement
of the king and queen was not made
public until the pep rally which was
held on Thursday evening.
The pep rally was highlighted by a
bonfire and a snake dance which wound
through the streets of Kadoka.
Climaxing the homecoming activi-
ties was the homecoming football game
with Wall Friday evening. It was also
Dad’s Night at the football game. Prior
to the starting of the game the players
and their dads were introduced to the
huge crowd which was on hand for the
contest. Fathers were given numbers
identical to those of their sons and wore
them during the game. All the fathers
of the football players were present for
the homecoming game. Wall won the
game by a score of 14 to 2 in a well
played contest.
Homecoming activities ended Friday
night with a dance in the city audito-
rium, with music provided by the “Tore-
adors” from Scotland, SD.

There is good science showing a
glass or two of wine per night pro-
tects against heart disease. But
what can be helpful to some, can
be poison for others.
One study found 53% of people
in the US have a close relative who
has a drinking problem. At last
count 17.6 million in this country
are alcoholic or alcohol abusive. Al-
cohol excess causing auto crashes,
homicide and suicide, liver-heart-
brain-kidney illness, and brain
damage to the unborn, costs the
US about 185 billion dollars per
year, not to mention incalculable
human suffering.
“Alcoholic” means four things:
craving, can’t stop, withdrawal
symptoms, and needing more and
more to get high. This is different
from “abuse”, which means a pat-
tern of drinking which results in
failed work or school responsibili-
ties, driving while drunk, legal
problems or social and family prob-
lems. Although separate by defini-
tion, many alcoholics also
experience alcohol abuse.
Maybe the power of addiction
has to do with what one friend
said, “It’s amazing how booze
makes you think you’re so intelli-
gent!” The paradox is that the
stuff that makes one feel so smart,
in reality, at the same time is de-
stroying judgment. People can’t
get out of it because they don’t re-
alize they’re in it.
The CAGE questions help iden-
tify when there could be a problem:
C stands for “cutting down”, A for
“annoyed” be criticism about
drinking, G for feelings of “guilt”,
and E for the “eye-opener” in the
morning to steady nerves. One yes
is worrisome, and two means
someone needs help.
There is a myth that alcoholism
is a sign of moral weakness, and to
seek help is to admit some type of
shameful act. In fact, alcoholism
is a disease like diabetes or
asthma, and not a sign of weak-
ness or ethical deficiency.
Why is it that alcohol will take
hold of some people, and not let go
until it’s destroyed their lives or
the lives of those around them?
We don‘t know the answer to that
question but what we do know is
that if there is a problem with al-
cohol, there is help to be had. You
just need to ask for it.
Rick Holm, M.D., Medical Editor
Alcoholism
Galatians 5:13
God has a purpose for your life. If that weren't true,
He'd have taken you home to heaven at the moment of
salvation. Do you ever wonder why He left you here?
The Lord intends to influence others through you.
Our purpose is to be a vessel through which Christ overflows to others--touching those who hurt and des-
perately need a Savior. Once we are saved, Scripture teaches, our involvement is threefold.
First, we love others. Jesus clearly stated that this was one of the two greatest commandments (Matt.
22:38-39).
Second, we share the good news of salvation (Acts 1:8). Some travel across the world to spread the
gospel, while others teach neighbors across the street. The Holy Spirit will direct us to the right people
if we are willing to obey.
Third, we serve in a variety of ways, like helping those in need, sharing our resources, and lifting
others in prayer. Jesus is our perfect example of all three. His entire life was marked by caring for peo-
ple--both those who loved Him and those who did not. In fact, the Bible teaches that He humbled Himself
and became like us, willing to give up His life for our redemption. There is no greater love; there is no
greater act of service.
Scripture clearly defines the believer's purpose. Aligning ourselves with God's intentions for His chil-
dren--loving others, witnessing, and serving-- bring us great satisfaction. In fact, we're still on earth not
merely to hear more teaching but to act on it and share with others what we learn.

The South Dakota Game, Fish
and Parks Department has been
monitoring die-offs of white-tailed
deer across portions of the state
and must make adjustments to
some West River deer hunting
units.
Epizootic Hemorrhagic Disease
(EHD) has been confirmed in
white-tailed deer, and many of the
deer deaths being reported by the
public are suspected to be the re-
sult of that disease.
In response to the disease, all
unsold licenses will be removed
from the following deer hunting
units for the West River deer sea-
son: Bennett County: 11A-09 and
11B-17; Gregory County: 30A-19
and 30B-19; and Jackson County:
39B-09. In addition, 200 licenses
will be removed for Meade County:
49B-09.
“As the department continues to
monitor the outbreak of EHD over
the next couple of weeks, we will
provide additional recommenda-
tions to the Game, Fish and Parks
Commission at its October meeting
to address East River deer units,”
said GFP Secretary Jeff Vonk.
“Currently, the department plans
to recommend that the commission
remove all unsold licenses in Bon
Homme, Hutchinson, and Yankton
counties and make significant re-
ductions to leftover licenses in
Brule and Charles Mix counties for
the second draw of the East River
deer season. Between now and the
next commission meeting, we will
continue our surveillance efforts
with the possibility of additional li-
cense reductions.”
Aside from conducting ground
surveillance and collecting reports
from the public, GFP is also using
aerial flights to help determine the
severity of deer mortalities.
“Reports of dead deer are coming
from across the state, and in some
instances landowners are telling
traditionally hosted hunters that
opportunities will be limited,” Vonk
said. “With that in mind, GFP is
notifying deer hunters that they
can voluntarily return a deer li-
cense for any season prior to the
start of that respective season and
receive a full refund.”
Hunters desiring a refund for a
deer license should send their li-
cense, including all associated tags,
to: GFP Licensing Office; 20641 SD
Highway 1806; Fort Pierre, SD
57532.
EHD is common in white-tailed
deer and is typically detected in
late summer or early fall. The virus
is spread by a biting midge and
causes extensive internal hemor-
rhaging. Many deer exhibit no clin-
ical signs and appear perfectly
healthy, while others may have
symptoms such as respiratory dis-
tress, fever, and swelling of the
tongue. With highly virulent
strains of the virus, deer can be
dead within 1-3 days. In an at-
tempt to combat the high fever, af-
fected deer are often found in
low-lying areas or near rivers,
ponds and other waters.
GFP continues to ask individu-
als who see sick deer or find dead
deer to contact their local conserva-
tion officer or call the Pierre office
at 605-773-5913.
EHD is not infectious to hu-
mans. For more information on the
EHD virus visit

pizootic-hemorrhagic-disease.aspx.

John F. Parke __________________
John Parke was born in Kadoka,
South Dakota, on February 24,
1943 to Olive and Merle Parke. He
grew up in Kadoka with five broth-
ers and sisters; William, Clifford,
Frances, Faye and Kathie.
He married Aletha Cadman on
Valentine’s Day 1963 and they
moved to Rapid City shortly after
they were married. In the Spring of
1967, they bought five acres of tim-
ber in the Rockerville area south of
town where they built their home
by hand and raised four boys;
Shawn, Kirby, Blake and Robbie.
All of John’s family and friends
loved to visit he and Aletha on their
five acres because it was so peace-
ful and quiet. Even though all of
the boys are grown and moved
away with families of their own,
they still call the place in the
“sticks” home.
John joined the South Dakota
Army National Guard in 1961 even
before graduating high school. He
started work as a full time Na-
tional Guard technician at Camp
Rapid in 1964. He graduated Offi-
cer Candidate School in 1969 and
received a commission as a Second
Lieutenant in the Quartermaster
Corps in 1970. John served in the
South Dakota Army National
Guard for 35 years in many differ-
ent leadership and management
capacities, retiring in 1996 as a
Lieutenant Colonel at the early age
of 53. John led by example. He
often said that common sense and
experience were the best teachers.
He was a dedicated volunteer.
He spent 45 years on the Rock-
erville Volunteer Fire Department
serving in all capacities. Following
retirement, he and Aletha bought a
small 5th wheel trailer and joined
the United Methodist Church
Nomad’s organization travelling
throughout the United States on
volunteer construction and remod-
eling projects. He discovered
the Nomads were a perfect fit for
his love of travelling, volunteering
and building things with “gently
used” building supplies. He also
volunteered at many local organi-
zations throughout his life, includ-
ing the Club for Boys and later at
the Club for Boys Thrift Store.
John was always ready to help
members of the church, neighbors,
friends and family. He was known
as “MacGyver” to his close friends
as he could build or fix just about
anything. His God-given talents
are left in many places. He en-
riched the daily life of many with
his wit and humor along the way.
He’s now working with the Master
Carpenter.
An avid fisherman and hunter,
John was at home fishing anything
from the lakes and rivers of the
Black Hills, to the numerous stock
dams around Kadoka, to the Mis-
souri River, to the Canadian Lakes.
One of his favorite activities was
“deer counts” on the many gravel
and dirt forest service roads in the
Black Hills. He and his brother
Clifford owned a cabin in the
Rochford area for many years. That
was one of his favorite places to
spend weekends and holidays with
family and friends
He will be greatly missed by his
wife Aletha, sons Shawn (Teresa) of
Gretna, Nebraska; Kirby (Shelli) of
Meridian, Idaho; Blake (Kim) of
Sioux Falls, South Dakota; and
Robbie (April) of Tacoma, WA;
twelve grandchildren and one step
great granddaughter.
John was preceded in death by
his parents, Merle and Olive
Parke, and niece Kristine Parke
McQuistion.
A Celebration of Life was held in
Rapid City at the South Maple
United Methodist Church on Fri-
day, September 14. He was laid to
rest at the Black Hills National
Cemetery at 2:00 p.m. with mili-
tary honors.
A memorial has been established
in John’s name at the Rapid City
Club for Boys.
Funeral arrangements were pro-
vided by Kirk Funeral Home.

I unclogged the drain on the
bathroom sink earlier this week. It
had been getting worse and worse
over the last month to six weeks
until it had become very slow to
empty. Using it required a bit more
patience than I had. It was time or
past time to fix things.
Accordingly, I rounded up the
big pliers-like tool I bought ages
ago after seeing plumber Lloyd
using one like it to good effect
many times. A couple of screw-
drivers were grabbed as well. Then
I cleaned out the vanity under the
sink just in case I made an unmit-
igated mess which was somewhat
likely going on past experience.
Taking a deep breath, I adjusted
the pliers to the size of the nut on
the plastic pipe and tentatively
gave it a turn. It moved easily.
“Oh, good!” I said. The nut on the
other side of the trap moved just as
easily. I could unscrew both of
them by hand from there on.
Oddly enough, the trap was
completely clear. The problem had
to be farther up. I probed up there
with a big screwdriver and
brought some stuff out, but the
clog seemed to be higher still.
Standing up, I considered how to
get the drain plug out since some
of those are connected by compli-
cated screw contraptions that have
completely defeated me in the
past. When I gave a tug, though,
the plug came right out. “That was
easy,” I said in relief. From there I
could see the obstruction, and the
screwdriver soon had it out. It was
a nasty glob of hair and unidenti-
fiable slime. It only took a minute
or two to remove it and flush the
pipe into the pail I had under the
drain below. Mission accomplished
except for reconstruction.
Luckily, the plug snapped right
back in, and the trap went back on
about as easily as it had come off.
I tightened things with the pliers
and tested my work by running
some water through. No leaks. Ex-
cellent! A few wipes with a couple
of paper towels and the job was
done. “That was easy,” I said to
myself. “Why didn’t I do that
weeks ago?”
“Because you don’t have any
confidence in your plumbing
skills,” was my immediate reply to
myself. And that is so. It is not an
area where I shine. I can do such
things, but natural talent, apti-
tude and experience are somewhat
lacking. As a result, I would rather
put up with the inconvenience of a
slow drain than actually try to fix
it.
As you know, a lack of confi-
dence can inhibit our attempts to
do various things. We might kind
of want to do various jobs or activ-
ities but don’t because we aren’t
sure we can pull it off. Dealing
with electrical matters certainly
falls into that category with me.
I’m not very confident when it
comes to plumbing, but double or
triple that with electricity. You
might make a big mess if you goof
up in plumbing, but you could end
up dead through a mistake with
electricity. I’m not sure that will
ever change with me so I am not
hesitant to call in an actual electri-
cian if things look somewhat be-
yond me. I plan to continue that
practice.
In other areas, though, I can ac-
complish what I want to do if I
work at it. About the first thing I
need to do, however, is relax. If
you’re all tensed up, you can’t do
much. This I learned in part
through playing complicated musi-
cal pieces in public. If you’re too
tense, your music won’t be very
good or you’ll scramble the hard
parts. I have to just tell myself
that, yes, there is a chance I’ll goof
up and embarrass myself, but,
what the heck. So be it. I’m going
to give it a shot anyway and try to
have a good time in the process. A
lot of practice beforehand, of
course, will make public perform-
ance easier.
Public speaking is another in-
stance of where one needs to con-
sciously relax. Seeing all those
eyes watching you could possibly
make one tense. I don’t have much
of a problem with that anymore,
but it was harder to do earlier in
life when I’d had no experience
with it.
You know, when Joshua was
about to lead the Israelites into the
Promised Land, God repeatedly
told him, “Be strong and coura-
geous. Be strong and courageous.”
This was possible for Joshua be-
cause God had promised to be with
him and help him. God promises to
do the same for us if we trust him,
even in everyday matters like
plumbing.
Oh dear! Wife Corinne just in-
formed me that another drain in
the house is having problems and
could use some work. Perhaps I’d
better deal with that while my tri-
umph over the first drain is still
fresh in my mind. As the little
train says in the childhood story
about climbing a steep hill, “I
think I can. I think I can. I think I
can.”

Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
Bob Fortune spent from Thurs-
day evening until Sunday in Rapid
City attending the Stockgrowers
Convention. Since Bob is vice-pres-
ident of the organization, he kept
fairly busy with meetings and
such. He said there was a good
turnout, and it was a good meeting.
The fundraising auction went well
as did the awards banquet on Sat-
urday evening. The main conven-
tion ended Saturday evening, but
there was a board of directors
meeting on Sunday that Bob also
had to stay for. Bob’s wife, Ruth,
came from Wyoming to spend the
weekend in Rapid City with Bob at
the convention.
Kenny and Roxie Fox also spent
the weekend at the Stockgrowers
Convention in Rapid City. Wade
Fox went up on Saturday for the
day. Kenny was president of the or-
ganization for the usual two-year
term which ended last year. Past
presidents, however, immediately
go onto the board of directors for
ten years, so he had to stay
through Sunday afternoon to at-
tend the board meeting. Kenny
said it was nice to get home, how-
ever, and get back out on the
prairie, check the cows, and do the
usual things. Mark DeVries also at-
tended the convention.
Chuck and Merry Willard at-
tended the Stockgrowers Conven-
tion this weekend. Their daughter,
Niki Kleinsasser, came from Hot
Springs to look after things at the
ranch while they were gone. Merry
just got home from spending about
three weeks with her daughter,
Coleen, and family at Pinedale,
WY. Coleen came here first for a
couple of weeks with her daughter,
Frankie, during which they enter-
tained the flu. Then Merry, Coleen
and Frankie visited Casey Willard
in Nebraska overnight before going
to Pinedale with a stopover of a
night at Casper, WY. At Pinedale,
Merry played with Frankie quite a
bit which she enjoyed. She also
helped some with the hunting
camp Coleen and Billy run as out-
fitters. While there, everyone took
a four-plus hour drive to Salt Lake
City, Utah. Merry also got to meet
Billy’s grandma whom she hadn’t
met previously since the grandma
wasn’t able to come when Billy and
Coleen got married. Merry said it
was nice to be back home.
Francie Davis and her three
sons just got back from spending
two weeks near Sioux Falls. They
were house and horse sitting for
some friends who went to Korea for
a brother’s wedding. On Saturday,
they attended the Bad River
Buckaroo 5K walk/ride/run at Mid-
land. The boys opted to ride their
bikes but Francie ran. Chad had to
work and did neither.
John and Samantha Addison at-
tended the horse sale in Philip on
Saturday. They came home with a
couple of pretty little colts. Saman-
tha’s dad, Gordon Flesner, of
Milesville was also at the sale. Son
Koye attended the parade and
other festivities in Midland this
weekend and had lots of fun. He
was taken by his grandmother and
great grandmother, Diana and
Marie. Sam said it was possible
that Koye ate a little too much
candy during his outing since he
was a bit high when he got back
home. Samantha also said that, of
the five siblings in her family, four
are twins and Sam is one of them.
Sam’s mom was also a twin, but the
twinning tendency hasn’t passed
down to the next generation yet.
Ronda and Rick Dennis went to
Rapid City on Saturday to work on
Dana’s deck. They spent the night,
returning home Sunday afternoon.
Larry, Jo and Jenny Johnston
attended the parade and pancake
supper in Kadoka and football
game in Philip Friday night. Satur-
day night they went to the dance in
Midland.
Greg and Dana Badure and kids
took in the homecoming festivities
in Kadoka this weekend. The kids
had suffered with the flu during
the week, and Greg was having
some trouble with that on Sunday
evening as well as having some
back trouble during the week. Greg
said that Brisa is scheduled to be
on KOTA TV on October 10 when
she will paint a pumpkin on Paula
Vogelsang’s Pennywise show.
Dana’s mom came from Sheridan,
WY, last week in her yellow Mus-
tang convertible. She worked as a
nurse in Sheridan for many years
but retired last year. She occasion-
ally likes to run around in her
sporty little car. Greg said brother
Bax and his wife, Carol, were in
Rapid City this weekend. He also
said their daughter, Brianna, has
recently started working at the VA
in Hot Springs. She plans to con-
tinue her college work but will do it
mostly over the Internet.
Mike and Marlene Perault took
in the homecoming parade, pan-
cake supper and such in Kadoka on
Friday. On Saturday, they went to
the fireman’s feed and dance over
at Midland. Lonny Johnston, Her-
man Bork, and their band, West-
bound, provided the music for the
dance. Marlene said she especially
enjoys it when the local band plays.
Painting was on the schedule for
Sunday to atone for having fun the
previous two days. That evening,
Bud and Valene Perault came for
supper. Earlier in the week, Mike
and Bert helped fight the big fire
over at Okaton. It was a fast mov-
ing, slightly scary blaze, especially
when the fire truck they were
using quit, possibly from a lack of
oxygen. The truck had to be just de-
serted while the men on it escaped
to safer quarters. Although the fire
burned all around the truck, the
truck itself didn’t suffer any dam-
age. When they went back to re-
claim it, the revolving light on top
was still going around and the
doors were open just like they left
it. Colter Carlson and Cole Hind-
man also helped fight the fire and
weren’t that fond of it.
Frost was reported at several
low-lying areas on Saturday night.
One place was at Lee Addison’s on
Brave Bull Creek.
Frank Carlson and Toni Romero
added another son to their family
on the September 10 when Stetson
Loyd was born to them at Pierre.
He joins older brothers, Trey and
Sage. Stetson seems to be doing
fine. His middle name was also the
middle name of Frank’s dad,
Lonny, and spelled the same way
with only one “L.” Frank attended
the big horse sale in Philip on Sat-
urday and the horse sale in Ft.
Pierre on Sunday. He came home
with a two-year-old from Philip,
and a colt and six-year-old gelding
from Pierre. Some of the new stock
is owned in partnership with Joe
Pavlas. Frank likes to have new
horses to train and possibly sell
later on.

Registered South Dakota voters
have the option of absentee voting
by mail or in person. Secretary of
State Jason Gant said absentee
voting opens Friday for the Nov. 6
General Election.
“To vote absentee by mail, voters
must complete an absentee ballot
application, sign it and either have
it notarized or provide a copy of
their photo identification card be-
fore returning it,” Gant said,
adding that applications are avail-
able in the offices of county audi-
tors as well as online at sdsos.gov.
“The auditor will then mail a paper
ballot to the voter to complete and
return.”
Residents may also vote absen-
tee in person beginning Sept. 21 by
visiting the office of their county
auditor. There they may confirm
voter registration, complete an ap-
plication for an absentee ballot and
then vote the ballot and return it to
the auditor.
In the case of military and over-
seas voters, applications can be
transmitted via fax or e-mail as
well as by postal mail. If the appli-
cation is for a Primary, General or
other statewide election, uniformed
and overseas voters may request to
have their ballots sent to them
electronically.
“Our website provides general
absentee voting guidelines as well
as a Military and Overseas Citi-
zens section, which offers specific
step-by-step instructions,” Gant
said. “Voters can also check their
registration status online at
sdsos.gov through the Voter Infor-
mation Portal, which is a tool al-
lowing voters to view a sample of
their ballots and check on polling
locations.”
Applications can be returned at
any time, but absentee voting be-
gins 46 days prior to an election. In
South Dakota, election officials
must receive applications for ab-
sentee ballots no later than 3 p.m.
on Election Day. Once an absentee
ballot is completed, a voter may re-
turn it to the county auditor in per-
son or by mail.
A qualified voter who is confined
due to sickness or disability may
apply in writing for an absentee
ballot via authorized messenger.
An authorized messenger delivers
the ballot from the election official
to the qualified voter and then re-
turns the marked ballot.
Breakdown of absentee voting in
South Dakota:
1. Verify status as registered
voter in South Dakota (register to
vote or update registration through
county auditor if needed; registra-
tion deadline is 15 days prior to an
election).
2. Obtain absentee ballot appli-
cation from County Auditor or on-
line.
3. Fill out application, sign and
have notarized or provide copy of a
photo identification card (ID re-
quirement waived only for overseas
voters).
4. Return application in person,
via authorized messenger or by
mail (uniformed and overseas vot-
ers may also submit applications
by fax or e-mail).
5. Fill out absentee ballot upon
receipt and return to election offi-
cial in person, via authorized mes-
senger or by mail.

2011, which showed there was a
water loss in the amount of
$24,804. It was noted that an in-
crease of 50¢ per 1,000 gallons
would have made the water fund
account break even for the past
two-year period.
The council will review the infor-
mation and discussion will con-
tinue at another meeting.
The fire alarm system, through

installation and other issues will be
discussed at the next meeting.
The City of Kadoka received cor-
respondence from West Central
Electric, stating they had reviewed
the small and large commercial
rates and have found that Kadoka
has two, three-phase accounts
which need to be changed. The
change rate will be approximately
$7 to $10 per month for the softball
field and the auditorium.
At last month’s city council
meeting is was decided to leave the

priation Ordinance. A motion car-
ried to approve the ordinance as
presented.
A new heating system at the city
shop was again discussed. It was

baseball field improvements, in-
cluding the quotes for materials for
bleachers, dugouts and a new

there is money in the budget to
help with the project. She said ma-
terials need to be purchased this
year. In addition to the city, Hori-
zons and the Kadoka American Le-
gion may be helping with funding.

Barn went up in smoke …The barn that was once by the tall
tree was destroyed in the fire, along with a number of other items in the
back, including a fuel tank.
Fire jumps the highway …and headed for the home of Brad
and Shawna Roghair south of the highway.
Smoke-filled air …The smoke rolls over the hillside toward the
home of Flavia Stotts on Wednesday, September 19. She also lost an aban-
don place on her land.
The aftermath … leading into the Brad Roghair residence. The
next day their daughter said, “It was by the grace of God that we didn’t
lose everything.”
Kadoka Volunteer Fire Department … Dale Christensen (L) runs the tender during the fire
Wednesday afternoon, continually refilling any fire-fighting units in need of water. He had just refilled the unit
of Luke Carlson’s when a Kadoka truck manned by Fire Chief David Johnson (R) and past chief Rich Bendt ar-
rived for a refill. Bendt said flames were shooting over 20 feet high. Kadoka had all of their units at the fire, in-
cluding the Suburban, which was used to transport water and sandwiches to the crews fighting the fire.
North of Bork’s …this dam diverted the fire toward the southeast,
forcing the fire around the home place of Herman and Jewell Bork. They
lost fences, bales and winter grazing pastures.
Lending a hand … Baxter Badure drives the pickup while Cole
Hindman sprays the fire from the back. These guys were just two of many
who took personal units to the fire; they were not the only crew using
homemade fire units made by Scott Bauman.
And here’s where it started …A truck with a load of round
bales, traveling south on a gravel road, ignited three fires, which resulted
in at least 16 fire departments responding, and many other individuals,
to help extinguish the fires on Wednesday. This was the scene over the
hill north of Herman and Jewell Borks’.
Wind-driven fire burns 2,465 acres, miles of fence, tons of hay

bales accidentally ignited the load
of bales, then proceeded to drive
two miles down the road towards
the Interstate, spreading the fire as
it went. Sylva said it is unclear as
to how the bales actually started on
fire.
The blaze swept through the
Herman Bork place, taking with it
382 hay bales, as well as destroying
winter grazing pastures and ap-
proximately 7.6 miles of fence. To
make matters worse, a good por-
tion of that fence was new.
After making its way through
the Bork’s, the fire jumped the In-
terstate and threatened both
Flavia Stotts’ residence, as well as
the residence of Nathan and Sherri
Vander Schaaf. A little further
south, Brad and Shawna Roghair’s
place was also in danger.
With a strong wind blowing the
fire south, Flavia Stotts knew she
had to do something, as the fire-
men had not yet arrived at her
house.
With garden hose in hand, she
was determined to saturate her dry
yard around her house and
propane tank.
“Whether that stopped the fire
or not, I don’t know. I could see
where the firemen had sprayed the
north side of the house.”
Stotts said she took her car and
drove east to be out of the way of
the fire.
“Marty Roghair drove over to re-
port to me that my barn had gone
with the fire,” said Stotts.
The fire came within yards of
her house and destroyed her barn,
but the firemen were able to keep
the damage to only that.
Straight south of Stotts’ house,
the Brad and Shawna Roghair
place was in danger. Clarice
Roghair reported that Bob Roghair
drove over with his tractor and
disk, turning up ground to stop the
fire from advancing any closer to
the Roghair home.
The Vander Schaaf ’s have been
threatened by fire more than once
this summer. The first time, a fire
started in the east bound lane of
Interstate 90, and spread up a
draw towards their home.
This time, the fire spread even
further, coming within less than
100 yards of their home. Sherri
Vander Schaaf said that the fire
has flared up near their house
twice since Wednesday.
Sylva reported that the Murdo
Fire Department stayed on the
scene of the fire over night on Sep-
tember 19, and has been back
every day to monitor and wet down
hot spots as needed.
Sixteen fire departments re-
sponded to the fire, including:
Murdo, Draper, Belvidere, Kadoka,
Midland, Philip, Ft. Pierre, Four
Corners, Wood, White River, Vi-
vian, Presho, Kennebec and Re-
liance, as well as the U.S. Forest
Service National Grasslands sta-
tioned in Ft. Pierre and B.I.A. from
Rosebud. The departments were
assisted by many neighbors who
drove personal fire fighting rigs.
In addition to other depart-
ments, Sylva reported that many
other services assisted with the
fire. They include: Jones County
Sheriff, Jones County Ambulance,
SD Highway Patrol, Pierre Police
Department, State Radio Commu-
nications Rapid City, SD Depart-
ment of Transportation, SD Office
of Emergency Management, Great
Plains Dispatch, West Central
Electric and Jackson County Emer-
gency Management.
Dean Nelson from West Central
Electric reported that 40 powerline
poles will have to be replaced as a
result of the fire. He said that no-
body was out of power for an ex-
tended amount of time during the
fire. Pole replacement will continue
for the next two weeks.
Sylva estimated that 50-60 fire
trucks responded, and approxi-
mately 120 firemen.
“After the fire jumped the Inter-
state, I put a call in to Great Plains
Dispatch for single engineer air
tankers, but before the could get
moralized, we had the fire under
control,” said Sylva.
Direct dollar damage reported so
far for the fire includes, but is not
limited to: Borks’ fence, the hay lost
and the buildings that were de-
stroyed. Indirect dollar damage in-
cludes winter grazing pastures
owned by Borks, and wheat stubble
fields that provide cover and keep
moisture in the ground.
Sylva said, “Thank you for
everyone who brought food and
water to the firemen, it really made
it easier.”
The Murdo Fire Department has
responded to approximately 50
fires so far this year. Eight of those
include mutual aid calls, in which
the department is called to help an-
other county. Vegetation fires, such
as grass or wheat, accounted for 25
of the calls.
Sylva encouraged everyone to be
careful when it comes to anything
that can cause a fire.
“The season is not done yet,”
Sylva reminds.
He said, at this point, rain will
help, but it will not stop the fire
season.

Wednesday, September 19 at
4:30 p.m. a semi hauling hay north
of Exit 177 started on fire, result-
ing in a blaze that destroyed 2,465
acres of land.
The fire threatened five differ-
ent residences between Exit 177
and Okaton, both north and south
of Interstate 90.
Although no residences were
damaged, one shop building near
the Flavia Stotts home was de-

The Kadoka Cross Country
team took part in the Western
Great Plains Conference meet in
Wall on Wednesday, September 19.
The girls’ team took second place
behind the Philip Scotties, with the
Kougars having 18 points to the
Scotties’ 16. Taking 3rd was
Lyman, 4th Rapid City Christian
and Jones County took 5th place.
Coming in first in the 4,000 var-
sity run was Holly Iwan of Philip
with a time of 16:55; 2nd Ellie
Coyle of Philip with a time of 16:57;
3rd Scout Sudbeck 17:30; 6th Vic-
toria Letellier 17:51; 9th Shaley

18:38.
In the boys’ division, Bobby An-
derson took 11th place with a time
of 19:37.

claimed first place in the confer-
ence meet.
Kadoka girls take 2nd in
WGP Conference meet
On Thursday, September 22 the
Lady Kougar volleyball team com-
peted in the White River Triangu-
lar.
Kadoka defeated White River
25-21, 25-21, 25-20.
Raven Jorgensen was 15/15
serving with 11 service points and
3 aces. Shaley Herber had a domi-
nant match spiking 20/23 with 13
kills and 2 blocks. Marti Herber
and Kwincy Ferguson each added 6
kills. Taylor Merchen had 12 set as-
sists, and Tessa Stout had 7 set as-
sists and 6 digs. This was really a
nice win for us. White River has a
good team but has just been up and
down all season. I think this was
one of the best attacking matches
we have played all season, and that
is a good sign, considering it is the
weakest part of our game.
Pine Ridge defeated Kadoka 25-
14, 25-16, 25-18.
Mariah Pierce was 8/8 serving
with 4 points and 1 ace. Raven Jor-
gensen was 13/13 spiking with 7
kills and 5 blocks, and Shaley Her-
ber was 8/9 spiking with 6 kills and
2 blocks. Tessa Stout and Taylor
Merchen combined for 11 set as-
sists. Mariah Pierce had 3 digs.
This was probably one of our worst
matches of the year. We were back
on our heels most of the match and
just could not get a read on what
Pine Ridge was doing. They put the
ball in every corner of the court,
and we just wasn't ready for it. It
was good for us though; Pine Ridge
is a good team, and they exposed
some of our weaknesses and let us
know what we need to get better at.
Pine Ridge JV defeated the
Kadoka JV 2-0.
White River JV defeated the
Kadoka JV 2-1.
The JV struggled a bit on Thurs-
day night after playing so well the
last few matches; but, they are
playing with a couple new players
to the JV, and it will take some
time to get used to each other. They
played pretty well against White
River losing in a close 3 set match.
Our next match will be in the
Lead Tournament on Saturday,
September 29.
--by Coach Barry Hutchinson
Kougars knock out Tigers
drop to Pine Ridge
put the team on his shoulders and
keep the offense rolling just enough
to keep the ball away from Jones
County in the second half. Our
guys faced a lot of adversity and
adjustments and they met the chal-
lenges head on as we were able to
completely shut down the Coyotes
offense as our defense held them to
only 33 total yards.
The story lines of this game
were of course the injuries, but the
way that everyone stepped up and
made plays, and played smart foot-
ball especially in the second half, to
get the win and to shut them down
the way we did, made me very
proud. Nothing was easy, but they
rose to the challenge. I also can not
say enough about the job that Lane
Patterson did when Chandlier was
unable to go anymore at quarter-
back. Lane came in, rarely ever
playing the position, and he milked
the clock and took care of the ball
for us in the 4th quarter.
If ever we needed a bye week it
is this week. We will take this time
to heal, and to regroup and get
ready for White River on October 5.
We look forward to the challenges
ahead, and one thing these kids
have done this year is rise to the oc-
casion when they are met with
challenges.
We appreciate the entire com-
munity for their support during our
2012 homecoming week! Go
Kougars!

Jones County – 0
Kadoka Area – 18
After a great week of homecom-
ing activities that included one of
the best pep rallies I’ve seen, the
Kadoka Area Kougars football
team put a nice ending to a fun
week with an 18-0 victory over the
Jones County Coyotes.
The game opened with a 95-yard
touchdown run on the first play of
scrimmage by Kenar VanderMay to
put us up 6-0.
The game then turned into
somewhat of a defensive battle. We
made some mistakes that put us in
some bad situations, but our de-
fense did a great job throughout
the game of holding off any kind of
threat from Jones County.
In the second quarter we had
some bad luck as Logan Chris-
tensen went down with a severe
ankle sprain and Kenar Vander-
May left the game with a broken
collar bone. It was very unfortu-
nate and our hearts are broken es-
pecially for Kenar, but our football
team stepped up and stayed tough
through all of that adversity.
Chandlier Sudbeck came in at
quarterback and threw two touch-
down passes in the second quarter,
one to Logan Ammons and one to
Klay O’Daniel to make the score
18-0 at halftime.
I don’t know if gutsy is the right
word for what Chandlier did for the
football team as he was nursing a
hip/back injury, but he was able to
Kougars face injuries, win
homecoming game 18-0

Chance Knutson
Football
Chance doesn’t always have the
most stats offensively, but he’s a
huge part of our offense at full back.
He’s been an excellent lead blocker
for us for four years now and is an
integral part of both our running and
passing game’s success. He’s also
been a four-year starter on de-
fense. He plays linebacker 90% of
the time, but when needed, he will
also play some defensive tackle.
Chance is always willing to do
whatever is necessary for the team
and is an outstanding leader on and
off the field.

In our two matches against Pine

itive attitude, hustle in conditioning,
and her willingness to always learn

SUPERINTENDENT’S REPORT: Mr.
Hermann reported that the NAFIS con-
ference September 23-25 will be at-
tended by he and Dale Christensen.
School Law seminars will be held in
Rapid City on October 17 and in Pierre
on October 24.
Mr. Hermann reviewed enrollment fig-
ures as follows: Interior, 50; Kadoka El-
ementary and High School, 242;
Longvalley, 41; Midland, 16. The enroll-
ment is comparable to prior years.
Kadoka pre-school has 23 students and
Midland pre-school has 7 students.
PRINCIPALS’ REPORTS: Mr. Nemecek
reported that open house and parent
meetings were held at Midland on August
27 and at Interior on September 4. Open
house events are scheduled in Kadoka
Elementary on September 18, 5:00 –
6:30 p.m. and Long Valley on September
27 6:00-7:30 p.m.
Mr. Seiler reported that the Tardy policy
is working well and ICU has been imple-
mented. The Kadoka high school parent
night was held on September 11 with ap-
proximately 30 parents and staff mem-
bers in attendance. The tardy policy and
ICU plan was explained to parents.
BOARD COMMITTEE REPORTS:
BUILDING COMMITTEE: Mr. Hermann
reported that the building committee met.
The committee held follow up discussion
on housing needs. The committee also
discussed the Resolution of Support re-
garding a future building project that was
adopted by the board last spring. On Oc-
tober 8 @ 7:00 p.m. a public meeting will
be held to begin discussion on a possible
gym project.
Mr. Hermann informed the board that the
windows on the west side of the elemen-
tary wing will be installed on Friday. He
also reported that during the high tem-
perature days, there were problems in
the Kadoka building with the electrical
load tripping breakers. Brant’s Electric
will be installing a new breaker box on
Friday.
POLICY COMMITTEE: Mr. Hermann re-
ported that the policy committee met.
They reviewed policies on long term sub
rate and clarified that those staff mem-
bers who will receive free activities
passes are the coaches, administration,
workers and staff members who do ticket
duty for two games or activites. Activity
bus driver pay rate was also reviewed
but should be addressed in the negoti-
ated agreement; It was decided that
staffing for class sizes and numbers of
grade levels should remain as recom-
mendations by the administration.
CITIZEN’S INPUT: Tasha Peters ques-
tioned if the ICU is replacing Friday tutor-
ing. Mr. Seiler responded that it is in
addition to Friday tutoring; ICU will be
twice per month and Friday tutoring is
weekly.
Tasha Peters also questioned the opera-
tion of the concession stand and if it will
be offered to the Junior Class first before
offering to other groups. She expressed
concerns regarding the Senior Class of
2013 having enough funds for their sen-
ior activities. Colby Shuck stated that
other groups needing to raise funds may
contact him and schedule activities that
they would like to work for fund raising
needs.
Mr. Seiler noted that a group of senior
parents have asked that graduation
gowns from past seniors be donated
back to the school to be re-used.

Matching the
Cropping System to
Water Availability
2012 will certainly go down in
the record books as one of the dri-
est growing seasons in history, and
has also proven to be very educa-
tional. Granted, that may opti-
mistic.
It became obvious early in the
summer that some crop sequences
like corn following corn, soybeans,
alfalfa or sunflower were much
shorter on soil moisture than oth-
ers. No-till fields seemed to with-
stand the drought better than
tilled fields. Even within fields,
large differences were seen in how
well the crops handled the
drought, reflecting changes in soil
types and the water holding capac-
ity of them.
As you look ahead to the 2013
growing season and beyond, if you
planted a crop that failed in 2012,
that may not necessarily be a bad
thing. That may sound easy to say
when you don’t farm, but if you
farm in such a way that a crop
never fails due to drought, you will
not take full advantage of a good
year.
Regardless of your farming
technique, good crop rotations
have many benefits; including
making the best use of the rainfall
you receive. Producers in dry areas
should strive for a mix of high and
low water-use crops. Producers in
better rainfall areas will include
more high-use crops.
A good rotation has diversity in
plant types, planting dates, and
harvest periods. This diversity
spreads workloads and decreases
insect, disease, and weed pressure.
Crop rotations also have varying
levels of water use intensity.
Dwayne Beck, Manager of the
Dakota Lakes Research Farm, has
done some example calculations on
both the diversity and intensity of
a variety of crop rotations, and has
the document available at:
http://www.dakotalakes.com/Publi-
cations/DI_Sample_Calculations.p
df. The proper water use intensity
will vary from one area to another.
The key is to make use of the rain-
fall you receive. As Dwayne Beck
says, when a crop fails, that’s what
crop insurance is for.
Nitrate Testing Summary
We were able to summarize a
large number of Nitrate test re-
sults from the 2002 and 2006
droughts, due to the cooperation of
the Olson Biochemistry Lab at
SDSU. With the closing of that lab
in the fall of 2011, that resource is
no longer available, but one of the
private labs recently provided a
summary of the Nitrate tests they
have analyzed to date.
SGS Labs, of Brookings, SD,
provided analysis of a number of
corn, corn silage, corn stalks, al-
falfa hay, grass hay mix, lamb-
squarter (weed), oat forage, oat
hay, and sorghum/sudan grass
samples from June 28 – September
4, 2012. The samples came largely
from South Dakota, with some
from Minnesota, Iowa and Ne-
braska. The majority of the sam-
ples came from southeastern and
southern South Dakota, and the
bordering parts of the other states.
The highest level of Nitrate
their analysis found was 1.14%,
which is well over 2 times the level
that is considered safe to feed,
even when mixed with safer feed-
stuffs. The average level was
0.15%, which is at the upper limit
of safe to feed to non-pregnant an-
imals, and recommended to be lim-
ited to 50% of the ration for
pregnant animals. The median
level, which is the numerical value
separating the higher half of the
samples from the lower half of the
samples, was 0.10%, which is safe
to feed to all animals if adequate
feed and water are available.
Any of the labs will continue to
test forages for Nitrates.
