Kadoka Nursing Home’s Resident of the Month
Forrest (Shorty) Ireland was born February 10, 1923, to Howard and Mary Ireland in Vian, NE, a small village with one house and a post office 35 miles south of Wood Lake, NE. He was the fifth from last of 12 siblings (seven boys and five girls). In 1926 the family moved eight miles east of Martin and Shorty attended a country school. He attended three schools in high school, Martin, Chester and Merriman, NE, where he graduated. Shorty recalled that his freshman year when the family moved to Martin, they took three cows and sold milk for 10 cents per quart; they would only have gotten 8 cents at the store. “We could walk a long ways for that extra two cents,” he said. This furnished the family of four with groceries for the year. On May 16, 1942, he married Betty Mansfield. He said the best wages he ever received was when he worked at an air base for a while, but Shorty soon returned to ranching. The Irelands had six children: Jerry, Howie, Kenny, Connie, Hal and Ronnie. “There was only 71⁄2 years between the oldest and youngest,” Shorty added. Now the family count is 20 grandchildren, 42 great-grandchildren and nine great-great-grandchildren. He said there’s over 100 descendents, including the in-laws. Shorty served on the local soil conservation board for 25 years. He was over 25 years on the Jackson County Extension board, eight on the state and three at the national level. And, he served 20 years on each, the SD Stockgrowers and Western Junior Livestock boards. Shorty proudly said he has been a Mason for almost 60 years and a member of the Presbyterian Church. Shorty said his dad sold horses to the US Calvary and they needed to be four years old and well broke. The horse project continued another generation; in the fall of 1944 Shorty went to a guest ranch at Nemo where he worked for one year and trained 50 head of colts for inexperienced riders. He bought a book on training, but was already using most the techniques. Afterwards he tested and got an honorary PhD in horse training. The first thing with training, he said was one-on-one with no distractions of other animals and the soft use of a jerk rope. Before you know it, he said, the horse will let you rub his head behind the ear and a friendship starts. Achievement Days was the highlight of his life. He recalled that at one time there were over 400 kids in Haakon/Jackson/Washabaugh when he was on the extension board. The family raised Angus bulls for almost 50 years. Each year only the top third were sold and the biggest year was 103 bulls. Shorty and Betty retired from the ranch in 1979 and moved to Kadoka. On May 31, 2004 Betty passed away. Shorty went into the nursing home on New Year’s Eve, 2010. “If I have known I’d live so long, I’d have taken better care of myself,” Shorty laughed. He is happy at the nursing home and considers everyone there his friend. “The workers amaze me,” he added. In addition, he says he loves the food and that’s why he can’t keep his weight down. Congratulations, Shorty on being chosen as the September Resident of the Month.

The parade is open for everyone to enter. In addition to all of the sporting activities going on that week, coronation will be Tuesday, September 18 at 7:00 at the city auditorium. Friday’s activities will include the homecoming parade, punt pass and kick, the KCBA pancake supper and will be capped off by the game on Friday night between the Kadoka Area Kougars and the Jones County Coyotes.

Minuteman Missile National Historic Site one of South Dakota’s great places
At one time in western South Dakota, there were 150 United States Minuteman missiles and 15 Launch Control Facilities acting as silent sentinels maintaining peace for Americans. Two of these sites, Delta-01 Launch Control Facility and the Delta-09 Launch Facility, have been preserved as a Minuteman Missile National Historic Site to provide visitors with a unique Cold War history lesson. This is one of South Dakota’s great places. The year was 1961, and the United States Air Force began buying secret weapons and putting them beneath the prairie grasses of South Dakota. These missiles were never launched. They did, however, act as a powerful deterrent during the Cold War. Many citizens and visitors alike never knew just how close they were to the below-ground, nucleartipped missiles. The deadly missiles were buried beneath not only South Dakota’s rural landscape, but across several Midwestern states for more than 30 years. While their locations were top-secret, their destructive power was well-known. It wasn’t until 1991 that President George H. W. Bush and the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev signed the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. This treaty called for the reduction of the number of nuclear weapons across the world. Soon thereafter, the South Dakota missile launch stations were deactivated. The South Dakota launch control facilities were favored for preservation because they were among the nation’s oldest; the technology dated back to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Only small modifications have been made to the deactivated sites; much of the original mechanical equipment and historic furnishings remain. The Minuteman Missile National Historic Site is the only National Park Service site devoted to Cold War History. Visitors are led from the Visitor Contact Station by a ranger for tours of a facility which operated 10 Minuteman II missiles. The contact station also houses exhibits, artifacts, and an orientation video. Tours include an above-ground and below-ground look at the site and are offered year-round. Tickets are free and issued on a first come, first served basis. Tours last approximately 30 minutes. Delta-09 missile silo site, located off I-90 at exit 116, can be explored on your own daily with a guided cell phone tour also available May-October.

California woman dies in crash near Kadoka
A California woman died in a one-vehicle crash on Interstate 90 about two miles east of Kadoka on Wednesday, Aug. 29. Ashley Greywoode, 34, of Pasadena, was a passenger in a 2004 Ford Escape. Her husband, Jewel Greywoode, 31, of Pasadena was driving west. Two young children were secured in car seats in the rear seat. As the Ford attempted to pass a truck, a rear tire blew. The vehicle entered the median and rolled. All occupants were wearing seatbelts or were restrained in car seats, but Ashley Greywoode suffered fatal injuries as did her unborn child. Jewel Greywoode received serious non-life threatening injuries. The two young children, ages 3 and 2, received minor injuries. The South Dakota Highway Patrol is investigating. Jackson County Sheriff ’s Office assisted.
Postal service favoring one private business over others
Last week newspapers were dealt a blow when the Postal Regulatory Commission gave its approval to a sweetheart postage rate deal between the United States Postal Service and Valassis Direct Mail, a competitor for newspaper inserts. The commission approved a negotiated services agreement between USPS and Valassis Direct Mail on August 23 with a 4-1 vote. Within 24 hours, Newspaper Association of America filed an appeal with the United States Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit and filed an emergency motion for a stay of the decision. The court has issued a briefing schedule on the motion for early September. On August 28, the National Newspaper Association filed documents in court in support of the NAA appeal. In part, the NNA court document read, “While the postal service has the backing of the full faith and credit of the United States should the NSA venture fail, its customers and competitors in the newspaper world do not enjoy the same privilege if the NSA succeeds and their own position in the market fails. No business can compete against its own government. Thus, if the NSA in fact does create undue harm in the marketplace, the harm is likely to be irreparable.” Both national trade organizations representing newspapers have stressed that granting this special postal rate to a major competitor in the mailing business will cause significant harm to newspapers throughout the country and will not improve the financial condition of the nation’s postal system. In a press statement related to its decision, the PRC said, “The commission understands that both newspapers and the postal service are experiencing declining revenues as new technologies based on the Internet gain popularity. Today’s decision affirms that fair competition between these two important institutions is consistent with the law.” The PRC’s opinion said, “Newspapers have a de facto monopoly on the weekend advertising of national retailers of durable and semi-durable goods. Naturally, they would like to retain that business. The postal service has long been in the market for distribution of such advertising, but it has not competed effectively. The newspapers have provided no explanation demonstrating why they would be precluded from competing effectively by adjusting their advertising rates and/or negotiating different rates for delivery.” NNA has released a question and answer format on the Valassis deal. What can you do? Tell the members of our congressional delegation that this sweeheart deal is a bad deal. Tell them that this case represents the first time USPS has directly targeted newspapers as competitors. It is not right and it is not fair. Setting a federal enterprise into direct competition with newspapers offends our most basic principles. Here is contact information for the congressional delegation staff who deal with postal issues: Sen. John Thune: Ryan Jensen – ryan_jensen@thune.senate.gov Sen. Tim Johnson: Carrie Johnson – carrie_johnson@johnson.senate.gov Rep. Kristi Noem: Anne Thimsen – anne.thimsen@mail.house. gov.

Protect hay and stored feed supplies
Even though South Dakota is still in the last stages of a hot and dry summer, Game, Fish and Parks Department officials are encouraging farmers and ranchers to begin thinking about the importance of protecting alfalfa, hay and other stored feed supplies from wintering wildlife. “With the effects of this year’s drought, we know that hay and other feed supplies will be even more valuable this coming winter,” GFP Wildlife Damage Program Administrator Keith Fisk said. “If South Dakota experiences a normal winter where we have even average accumulations of snow it will be important for producers to consider taking some proactive steps that will reduce the potential for wildlife damage.” Fisk added that many producers have reported they’ve been able to reduce or prevent wildlife damage just by giving some careful thought to where they locate their winter livestock feed. “If producers have chronic problems with wildlife damage despite their best efforts, we want to make sure they’re aware that GFP has several cost-share programs available to help protect their feed supplies,” Fisk said. Over the past 15 years, GFP has developed several wildlife damage abatement programs which provide cost-share assistance to producers. One program helps supply protective panels that can be temporarily loaned to producers to help protect feed supplies. Another program actually helps producers fund the purchase and construction of stackyards or other protective fencing measures. Because GFP’s Wildlife Damage Program is funded entirely with hunting license fees, producers are asked to sign an agreement that states they don’t charge for hunting access and they’ll agree to allow a reasonable amount of free public access for hunting. “Permanent stackyards work well for producers who have specific locations where they store hay or other feed every year,” said Fisk. “Our portable panel program has also become popular with producers over the last few years. The great thing about the panels is they allow producers some flexibility in where they place feed supplies from year-to-year.” Ensuring an adequate harvest of big game animals on an annual basis remains the best tool available to help producers reduce wildlife damage on their property. However, should producers experience wildlife damage from concentrations of deer, elk or turkeys, GFP encourages them to contact a GFP representative as soon as possible. Since 2005, GFP has worked with more than 800 individual producers to provide financial assistance to help them build permanent stackyards or purchase protective panels. On an annual basis, GFP expends more than $2.5 million to assist producers with a wide variety of programs designed to help reduce damages caused by wildlife. For more information or assistance, producers may contact their local Wildlife Damage Specialist or GFP Division of Wildlife office.
Drought worsens in west central South Dakota
The latest edition of the United States Drought Monitor was released last week and reflected worsening drought in the west central part of South Dakota, said Laura Edwards, South Dakota State University Extension climate field specialist. Extreme drought has now taken over Haakon and Jackson counties, and portions of the surrounding counties as well. This level of drought covers more than a quarter of the state, up from 17 percent in the previous week. Edwards said the latest map, released August 30, showed no change in the other drought severity categories. Edwards said water levels in rivers and streams, the recent hot and dry weather, in addition to field condition reports have all contributed to the one category change on the U.S. Drought Monitor. “Streamflow levels for the last week have been much lower than normal for this time of year, and temperatures were in the 90s with little rain,” Edwards said. Over the last 30 days, the new extreme drought region has received less than half of normal rainfall. The last week had been two to six degrees above average, which cut short any relief from the cooler temperatures that were spread across the state a couple of weeks ago. Elsewhere in the state, hot and dry weather took over in recent days. The outlook for the next five days appeared to continue with below average rainfall, with some scattered small amounts in the eastern half of the state. Edwards said that Tropical Storm Isaac is weakening and making its way inland, but will be turning east, and likely will not bring any beneficial rainfall to our area. Temperatures will cool off from the 100 plus degrees that the state experienced recently, but will return to the 90s for many eastern South Dakota locations. She said the Black Hills will be just slightly cooler, in the mid-80s and low 90s, over the next several days.

Lucy’s Knees
in Ethiopia’s Awash Valley, a 3.2 million year-old skeleton of an ape was discovered that was different than other ape skeletons. The knee bone shape, along with pelvic architecture, indicated that this ape walked upright. As the Beatles music “Lucy in the Sky with Diamonds” was playing in the background, archeologists speculated that this could be the long sought link between apes and humans, and the upright walking individual was famously nicknamed “Lucy.” Her brain was small and ape-like but she walked upright. This was evidence that the upright position might have come first. They speculated that standing tall allowed for the evolutionary advantage of having a better view of approaching enemy or mate and all the rest followed. Could it be that the special design of an upright knee allowed for the first big step toward the evolution of humanity? And what is so special about this design? The knee is a hinge joint mostly held together with four ligaments. The two “collateral” ligaments run along the inner and outer sides of the knee keeping our legs from bending inward (knock-kneed) or outward (bowlegged).  The more noteworthy structures however are the two tough fibrous ribbon ligaments, which cross each other, front to back, on the inside of the knee forming an "X.” This explains why they are called the cruciate or cross-like ligaments. The anterior cruciate ligament or ACL starts at the back of the thighbone or femur above, crosses to connect at the front of the shinbone or tibia below, and keeps the lower leg from sliding forward. The posterior cruciate ligament or PCL starts at the front of the thighbone, crosses to the back of the shinbone, and keeps the lower leg from sliding backward. What is so ingenious is how these crossing ribbons provide for such stability, and yet at the same time, allow for the bending of the knee. So it is as Gerard Manley Hopkins the Priest poet said: “The world is charged with the grandeur of God.”

Farenheit 451
Ray Bradbury’s 1953 novel depicts a future world where firemen burn books and houses that contain them instead of putting out fires. Guy Montag has enjoyed ten years as a fireman, never questioning the pleasure of the midnight runs or the joy of watching pages consumed by flames -- never questioned anything until he met a seventeen-year-old girl who told him of a past when people were not afraid. When Guy meets a professor who tells him of a future where people are free to use critical thinking skills -- challenging conformity and censorship -- Montag suddenly realizes what he must do… Dorothy Liegl will again lead the book discussion for Bradbury’s best-known novel, presented by the SD Humanities Council. To participate in the discussion or just read the book, please sign up at the Jackson County Library and pick up a copy of the book. Discussion will be at 2:00 p.m. on Sunday, October 14, 2012 at the Jackson Co. Library. New discussion members are always welcome. Questions, call Deb Moor at 837-2689.
Adoption creates health, loving families
by Senator John Thune
Like many South Dakotans, I am extraordinarily blessed to have a wonderful family built on a foundation of love, respect, trust, and faith. With the guidance of my mom and dad, I learned the importance of education and the value of hard work. My family supported my successes and helped me learn from my failures. However, it was not until Kimberley and I had our first daughter that I understood the magnitude and responsibility of being a parent. Nothing I have done in life or ever will do can compare to the joy and rewards that come with being a dad. Sadly, many children will nev er know what it means to have a father or a family, someone to cheer on their baseball team or put a Band-Aid on their knee. Family is just a word in the storybooks for thousands of children across the country. According to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services there are more than 114,000 children in foster care waiting to be adopted in the United States. These children have entered the foster care system through no fault of their own, often as a result of abuse, neglect, or abandonment. Often families shy away from adoption due to the perceived high cost and uncertainty associated with the process. That is why I have and continue to support the federal adoption tax credit that attempts to alleviate some of the financial barriers for families wanting to provide nurturing homes for children in need of a loving family. Earlier this month, I nominated Ryan and Amber Johnson from Sioux Falls for the “Angels in Adoption” award which is presented annually by the Congressional Coalition on Adoption. This young couple is an example of what it means to be true heroes. They have overcome personal struggles and have used their life lessons to create a warm, loving home for children in need of a nurturing environment to grow and develop. Every child deserves a place to call home and a loving family to support them. Through adoption, children get loving and supportive families and families are blessed with new lives to nurture. I commend the many families across our state who have opened their hearts and homes to children in need. I hope that the work and uplifting efforts of people like the Johnsons will continue to inspire other South Dakota families to make a difference in the life of a child.
2 Chronicles 20:5-12 Modern-day Christians can learn some good lessons from Old Testament prayers. When Jehoshaphat beseeched God for help, he struck a balance between askA Balanced Prayer ing the Lord to meet his needs and proclaiming His greatness. Likewise, our requests shouldbe made with recognition of who God is. Otherwise, the focus of our prayers becomes need, weakness, failure, or fear. Jehoshaphat cried out to God about his terrible predicament, but he also exalted the Lord's attributes, acknowledging the great things He had done. When we pray like this, we become stronger, bolder, and more forthright. That's why knowing the Word of God is so important. When we read about how the Lord worked in the lives of others, we understand His awesome power and might. Then we can look to the men and women of the Old Testament as an example and begin to pray in a similar way. God's wonderworking power is still available today, and He wants His children to access it. By proclaiming, "Power and might are in Your hand so that no one can stand against You" (v. 6), Jehoshaphat was praising God and at the same time reminding himself of the Lord's greatness. As you pray, remind God of His mercy, talk to Him about His grace, and recall His mighty power. Do you want to revolutionize your prayer life? If you focus as much attention on declaring the attributes of the Lord as you do on making requests, your prayers will take on a whole new dimension. They'll cease to be self-centered and instead will become God-centered.

Lookin’ Around
by Syd Iwan
Memory Triggers
We are surrounded by things that often remind us of people, places or circumstances. Take the lug of peaches I bought recently. I buy a lug most years, and it always reminds me of my cousin LuWanna. As it happened, one summer when Lu and her family came from North Dakota to visit us as they often did, my folks had just bought a lug of peaches. When they realized Lu really liked them, they told her to help herself whenever she wanted. Well, she wanted fairly often. I have recurrent visions of her walking around holding a peach in the pink tissue they came wrapped in. She would nibble on that thing a long time, savoring it, and making it last. She didn’t peel it, cut it up, or have it with cream. She just ate it plain. This taught me that it is possible to get a lot of pleasure out of simple things. In a similar vein, carrot sticks often remind me of our neighbor, Carolyn. When she was on the election board with me, she often brought a jar of carrot sticks in water to snack on during the day. She always offered to share them with the other members of the board, and sometimes I took one, but my idea of snacks ran more to chocolate-chip cookies or other sweets. I wonder if that might be why Carolyn is still thin whereas I could stand to lose a few pounds? In the kitchen, I have various utensils that bring certain people to mind. One is a white spatula that reminds me of my nephew, Jason, and his wife. They gave this item to me one Christmas, and, at first, I thought it looked awkward and hard to use. After using it a few times, however, I got to really liking it. It is now my favorite spatula, and I use it all the time. There is also a small flat pan in the kitchen that I got from my Aunt Vange. She no longer wanted it one time when I was helping her move so I took it. Somehow that is the handiest pan for little jobs. I don’t think it was originally intended for cooking but had something to do with making ice in the freezer. Nevertheless, it gets pressed into cooking duty all the time around here. Using it does sometimes make me recall the regret I had about not being able to visit Vange very much in her last few years since she was in a nursing home some distance away and in a town I seldom had reason to visit. Vange and her husband, Don, were a big part of my life for a lot of years, always spent Christmas Day with us etc. Anyway, this little metal pan brings them to mind fairly often. As would be expected, lots of things remind us of members of our immediate family. Cross-stitch pictures on the wall make me think of Mom and her constant “fancy work” projects. Dad tended to collect things like old tools, and odds and ends of this and that. They are still around to promote memories of him. My sister has given me many gifts that are here and there around the house and often turn my thoughts in her direction. Just this week I got a real memento of my school years in town and the people I met there. This memento was made by a schoolmate out of the old wood flooring that was originally in the Murdo depot dating back to about 1906. That town is where I went to school from fifth grade through high school. Doug, it seems, has taken up working with a lathe and making various things. He decided that, since I did some writing, I might like one of his pens made out of the depot’s maple wood. It is beautiful. It not only makes me think of Doug and his family, but of the time when trains ran through that area, not to mention all the other recollections about school, fellow students and what not. Just having that pen on my desk makes my mind frequently return to yesteryear. The pen also brings another schoolmate, Bob, to mind. I have little doubt that he walked on those depot floors countless times since he was enamored with trains from the cradle and spent his life driving them up and down the rails. His dad was my barber for many years, and his folks were in and out of our house all the time playing bridge with my folks. It’s odd how a bit of wood can direct your thoughts to years gone by and the people who inhabited them. If you don’t believe me, take a minute or two to look around your house. I think you’ll see what I’m talking about.

Dana Badure and kids attended the funeral for Lana Sanftner in Midland on Friday. As it happened, Lana’s daughter, Tejai, was staying overnight at Badure’s with Brisa on the night Lana passed away in Rapid City. This was somewhat traumatic but everyone got through it okay. Greg said that Lana was always so happy and upbeat that it was hard to lose her. Greg also said that traffic has slowed down a lot on I-90 after the motorcycle rally which means he is not quite as busy with his rest area maintenance east of town. During the summer, he needs to spend twelve hours a day at the two places, but that will drop now to more normal eight-hour days. At the ranch, fall shots have been given there and at various neighbors. There has also been early shipping of cattle due to pasture being short in this dry year. Randy Peters has been helping Bax and Al lately as well. Lee Addison and Rhonda are tired of killing rattlesnakes around the place. Five have wandered through lately such as in the garden, carport, etc. There is a prairiedog town close by which attracts them somewhat, but usually only one or two are seen in a year. They make gardening somewhat of a cautious affair, but some tomatoes and cucumbers have been raised and put up for the winter. Rhonda said her knees are slowly improving after the replacement surgery she had on both of them back in January. She still hasn’t been riding any horses, but she is eyeing the horses with speculation recently, thinking it might be about time since riding is one of her favorite things to do. Going all the way to Maine with Dana Badure and kids a bit ago was a little hard on the knees, but it was a good trip. Recently, Lee and Rhonda have been traveling to Highmore most weekends to help friends work on their house. The house has been raised for basement work, and there is no electricity and therefore no air conditioning. It can be hot work. Bunny Green was visited for several days last week by her nephew, Carl Dean Peadke, of Carter Lake, Iowa. He is the son of Bunny’s sister. Carl Dean had been to Washington to visit cousins and was on his way home. He parked his three-bedroom motor home in front of Bunny’s house and slept in that while he was here. Bunny said there have been a lot of skunks around this year, and her neighbor has killed four of them for her that were around her place. None have
been around the last few days, but Bunny is keeping on eye on things in case more show up. Francie Davis is currently a fulltime student at Black Hills University. She is doing it all over the Internet, however, so she doesn’t have to be gone from home. She hopes to get her degree in General Studies in December. She is now taking courses in the humanities, geography and digital photography. Her boys are enjoying her courses as well and also having her go to school since they have to. The family beagle tangled with a coyote this week and had to be repaired by the vet. He is doing okay at present. On Saturday, Chad, Francie and boys and Bob and Ruth Fortune all went to Wall for the 80th birthday celebration for Vera Nelson and Vern Fortune. Vera and Vern are twins and are Bob’s aunt and uncle. Francie said her folks were somewhat related before they got married since Bob was a Fortune and her mom, Joan, was a Nelson. Earlier in the day on Saturday, the Davis family was up near Faith fixing fence on the ranch belonging to Chad’s uncle. The uncle is gone right now and wanted Chad to keep an eye on things. Aaron, Michelle and Tyrel Mansfield spent the weekend in Rapid City at a reunion of Michelle’s mom’s side of the family. They went up on Friday and came back on Sunday. A special draw was some relatives that don’t live close, such as in Billings. Jim and Fayola left on Thursday for Wyoming to visit their daughter, Alison, and family. They took in grandson Thomas’ football game on Thursday evening at Upton where it was cool and nice. They returned home on Friday. Howie and Cathy Ireland have managed to raise some beans, tomatoes and cucumbers this year despite the grasshoppers and drought. The beans did quite a bit better than expected, but Howie said they might have been better off saving their time and money on gardening this year. Scot and Jodie O’Bryan have mostly stayed busy with their regular work of training and shoeing horses and working at 1880 Town. They still haven’t been to Yankton to get acquainted with their newest grandkid, but time will be taken for that very soon. This week, Scot will go to Kansas to help with a horse sale. Jodie is getting anxious to do some barrel racing again and will get to that shortly. Crystal Paulson is back to teaching college courses again. This semester she will be teaching in Porcupine and Batesland. The college she works for has eleven satellite places they offer courses as required by people who want to take them so Crystal is never quite sure ahead of time where she will be sent each semester. She does tend to get in a lot of driving. During this hot weather, Crystal has been staying at home quite a bit when not out teaching somewhere.

Marjorie Anne Letellier • 462-6228 The only way to help yourself is to help others. Several folks from this area attended the services for Walt Heinert in Valentine, NE, on Monday. Despite the heat a large crowd of family and friends gathered at the St. John Lutheran Church basement on Monday following the burial. A delicious lunch was served to them by the church ladies. Please keep the Heinert family in your heart and prayers at this sad time of loss. HOT has been the best description of the week. The starting of school didn’t seem to change the thermometer a bit. Mother Nature doesn’t seem to know it is supposed to be cooler and bring the refreshing autumn rains. The ground is just crying out for moisture and so are we. June Ring is helping Pastor Utecht and family at the Puppet Place at the South Dakota State Fair this week. It is such a favorite place of the little ones with their puppets and magic tricks, prizes, etc. Pastor Andrew was just a kid doing the tricks when our family spent a lot of time there. We all knew where the Puppet Place was. Stan Allard of Rapid City came down on Tuesday and visited his mother, Maxine, and put a new battery in her car. That afternoon Christine Dunham paid a visit to Maxine’s and got some cucumbers and material that Maxine had saved for her. Maxine, like so many of us, is finally enjoying many items from her garden. Everything seems so late this year. Susan Taft and Morgan went to White River for the volleyball game against New Underwood on Thursday evening. White River came out the winners. Wednesday afternoon the Norris School open house was enjoyed by many students and parents. Folks strolled through the sparkling shiny halls viewing the different classrooms and welcoming the teachers. After you had seen all the rooms you were greeted again by Bobbi Kelley, who is the head teacher, and was kept busy serving ice cream sundaes and iced tea. It was a perfect treat for those of us who had braved the heat. Jim and Marjorie Letellier and Andrea Beckwith visited Maxine Allard Thursday evening. Maxine is busy doing her thorough fall house cleaning. She can start in on mine when she gets done with hers. Ed and Carol Ferguson went to Rapid City on Friday and brought back their granddaughter, Kaitlyn Ferguson, to spend a few days. Kaitlyn and Carol along with Irene Kaufman and Margie Popkes were in Valentine on Saturday. Friday evening, the Jason Burma family and friend, Samuel Pedersen, from Sunshine Bible Academy and Julie Letellier of Kilgore arrived at the James Letelliers for the Labor Day weekend. Marty and Sue Larson arrived on Saturday, just for the day. A weekend guest of Robert and Sharon Ring was their daughter, Deb, of Spearfish. She had to go back early and meet the plane because her special friend and family from Japan were arriving Sunday evening. Saturday the Letellier gals held a rummage sale at the Norris Township Hall. Marty and Sue Larson of Rapid City, Julie Letellier of Kilgore and Jason and JaLynn Burma were all home for the event. Sorry folks, but it was just too hot to make long johns for the baked sale, you will just have to come on Halloween for a free one, only if it cools off by then. Ken and Karen Toews of American Missionary Fellowship spoke at Norris Bible Church Sunday morning following Sunday School. A potluck dinner was served at the Norris Township Hall following the service. Friday, Evan and Dorothy Bligh went to Rapid City on Friday. No school news this week due to the Labor Day weekend which meant no school on Monday. It is
the last big break before school really gets going in earnest. Labor Day weekend guests of Larry and Nancy Collins was their son, Jeff, and Carol Collins from Castlewood, SD. Jeff and Carol enjoyed visiting in the Bill and Gale Letellier homes Sunday. On Sunday afternoon, Ed, Carol and Kaitlyn Ferguson attended the Ansel and Mary WoodenKnife family reunion. It was held at Mary’s favorite garden spot along the Corn Creek Dam near the John and Kris WoodenKnife home. Sunday supper guests at the home of Dan Taft and family were Susan’s parents, Alvin and Judy Simmons, of Martin. All of the Dave Letellier family of Hulett, WY, was at the Gale Letellier ranch for the holiday weekend except Hailey. Jakki and Jimmy Burma accompanied their aunt, Julie Letellier, to Rapid City on Sunday afternoon and visited in the home of thier uncle and aunt, Marty and Sue Larson. They were overnight guests and then returned home on Labor Day. JoAnn is hosting the SD Master Gardeners on Saturday, September 8. Everyone is invited to join them on a yard and garden tour in the afternoon at the Gale and JoAnn Letellier residence Saturday at 2:00 p.m. CST. I can guarantee, you won’t be disappointed. Their yard is always picture perfect, gorgeous and well worth the trip. Have a great week!

Terri Kezar of Yoder, WY, and Jan Verschoor of Rapid City spent Friday in Kadoka doing some packing at the former Steve Jeffords house. Terri planned to go to Huron on Saturday to attend a family birthday party before returning home. Mitch Moor of Pierre spent the weekend at the home of his parents, Deb and Marv Moor. He left on Sunday as he had to work that night. Sandra Luisi of Black Hawk and her friend, Ron Hammer, visited with her parents, Wilma and Mel Carleton on Saturday and all enjoyed lunch at Jigger’s. Also visiting at the Carletons that day was son and daughter-in-law, Randy and Cheryl Carleton, of Rapid City. They had been walleye fishing at Lake Oahe near Ft. Pierre and had good luck there. Tom and Jody Struble of Philip visited with his parents, Les and Muree Struble, on Saturday evening and all enjoyed supper at Jigger’s.

The 2013 membership notices will be sent out on September 15. Residents of my neighborhood had a rare treat on Sunday morning. A bevy of about 20 grouse roamed through several yards, evidently looking for food and water. With the summer being in a drought, water is scarce even for the animals and birds. It was fun watching the grouse move from yard to yard for several minutes. Some of the activity of the rodeo circuit included the following: Chad Ferley rode and placed in at least three rodeos the past week: In Pueblo, CO, he tied for 2nd place with an 84, winning $2,468; then to Filer, ID, winning first with an 87 and a check for $2,622.

DOH to purchase testing standards with award from drug control fund
Attorney General Marty Jackley has announced that the South Dakota Public Health Laboratory has been awarded $3,521 for the purchase of synthetic drug test standards. The money was awarded out of the Drug Control Fund. The award will assist local law enforcement in drug control and apprehension purposes. “Synthetic drugs are increasingly affecting the health and safety of our youth. This award will assist law enforcement efforts with the accurate and timely testing of these dangerous chemicals,” said Jackley. Senate Bill 23, which was passed in the 2012 legislative session, made a range of synthetic drugs controlled substance that cannot be legally possessed, distributed or manufactured in South Dakota.

CRP HAYING/GRAZING DEADLINES A variety of questions have come up lately concerning managed and emergency haying/grazing of CRP acres. Here are some general answers to a lot of those questions.

So, if you have any more questions concerning this information, please feel free to call us at 605-859-2186 or just stop in the office. Emergency CRP haying was authorized for the period of August 2 through August 31, 2012. Emergency CRP grazing was authorized for the period of August 2 through September 30, 2012, although emergency CRP grazing was recently extended for two months (through November 30) if an updated NRCS grazing plan indicates there is sufficient grazing available. Producers must report their hayed and grazed acres as follows. For both ‘managed CRP haying’ and ‘emergency CRP haying’, the acres actually hayed must be reported no later than September 11, 2012. For ‘managed CRP grazing’, the acres actually grazed must be reported within 5 days after the livestock have been removed or October 5, 2012.

Kougars play hard, drop to Tigers by one touchdown
New Underwood - 6 Kadoka Area Kougars - 0 The second game of the 2012 football season turned out to be a forty-eight minute nail biter as the Kougars and the Tigers of New Underwood turned out a tremendous defensive battle that unfortunately for the Kougars, ended in a 6-0 victory for the Tigers. The score remained tied at zero until late in the third quarter when New Underwood took advantage of a Kougar turnover and produced the first and only points of the game. We played nearly flawless on defense only allowing the Tigers 168 total yards of offense. However, we had our mistakes offensively and on special teams. We turned the ball over three times this week and were stopped in the red zone multiple times. You can’t come up empty in the red zone that many times and expect to win. We also had some miscues on special teams that also caused us to have either bad field position offensively or give them good field position which put pressure on our defense. There were a number of positives offensively as well. As I said before we only allowed 168 yards on defense, but we were also able to put together 243 yards on offense. We were able to move the ball quite effectively at times with a good mixture of run and pass. We had 39 rushing attempts for 139 yards. Our rushing attack was lead by Chandlier Sudbeck who carried the ball 12 times for 76 yards. Kenar VanderMay carried it 20 times for 57 yards and Chance Knutson 7 carries for 6 yards. Kenar VanderMay was 7-18 passing for 104 yards and 1 interception. Receiving leaders were, Chandlier Sudbeck 3 for 49 yards, Logan Ammons 2 for 37 yards, Logan Christensen 1 for 13, and Lane Patterson 1 for 5. Our offensive line, led by Clint Stout, along with Logan Christensen, Gavin DeVries, Herbie O’Daniel, Logan Ammons and True Buchholz, along with full back Chance Knutson did a fine job this week under heavy blitz pressure from New Underwood. We had times when they were bringing 6-7 guys and we picked it up pretty effectively. We had a couple of let downs, but overall I’m pleased with the progress of our offensive line. Defensively we were led in a big way this week by Clint Stout who tallied a total of 17 tackles. We moved Clint from defensive end to middle line backer this year and he has really started to flourish in his new position with the help of fellow senior Chance Knutson who tallied 8 tackles this week. With these two guys in the middle we have a lot of experience that has proven to be very strong so far this season. We also have a solid set of outside linebackers in Kenar VanderMay and Chandlier Sudbeck who also bring a lot of experience, as well as speed, to defend the outside. They each had 6 and 4 tackles, respectively. Our front line this week consisted of True Buchholz, Logan Ammons and the little big man in the middle Klay O’Daniel. These three guys do a good job of being aggressive and forcing the offensive lineman to block them, and when you can get five guys having to block three of ours, that frees up our linebackers a lot. True ended up with 5 tackles, Logan Ammons had 4 and Klay had 3. Sam Pretty Bear made sure that New Underwood’s passing game wouldn’t be effective as he was on constant watch at safety. Sam ended the game with 4 tackles. Lane Patterson got the nod this week at line backer as Logan Christensen was nursing a muscle strain in his leg. Lane stepped up and did a nice job as he ended the game with 4 tackles. I think we learned a lot about ourselves this week. New Underwood has a very good and physical football team. We learned that if we keep the mistakes to a minimum and make a few adjustments here and there we can play with anyone this season. Our boys played with a lot of heart and they have worked really hard to this point in the year and I only expect them to get better as the season goes. The schedule certainly doesn’t get any easier this week as we travel to Presho to take on the Lyman Raiders. Lyman comes into the game 0-1, losing to a tough White River club 36-20 last week. Lyman will pose as a huge test for us as they come off a 2011 season in which they appeared in the playoffs and didn’t lose many kids to graduation. I look for our defense to keep us in the game this week, and hopefully offensively we can get it going again and finish the drives so we can put some points up on the board to help out our defense. The game this week is in Presho and it starts at 6:00 p.m. MT. Hope to see you there.

Carol Butzman Consulting presented a billing for mental illness costs in the amount of $133.29. Report was made that the patient is not a Jackson County resident.

Discussion was held that Rushmore Communications reprograms the E. F. Johnson radios. Denke moved, Bennett seconded, that the three E. F. Johnson mobile radios be declared surplus, and that one radio be transferred to Green Valley Fire Department, and the other two mobile radios be transferred to the Belvidere Fire Department.

She reported that twelve persons attended the August 2012 Hazard Mitigation Planning meeting. She encouraged more county officials and personnel to attend the meetings and participate in the planning, as larger number of participants will create a larger in kind match for grant funds. She stressed that the Highway Superintendent should attend these meetings. The next Hazard Mitigation Planning meeting is scheduled for September 5, 2012. Discussion was held on radio FCC licensing. Discussion was also held on use of pagers, and receiving text messages on cell phones from 911 dispatch. A quote was received from GenPro Power Systems, Rapid City, SD for a larger generator at the courthouse. The quote was for a 36 KW generator, with installation, for $20,651.51.

Following discussion, Bennett moved, Denke seconded, that the apportionment be approved as presented. Twiss presented a mutual aid agreement prepared by the Forest Service for requesting manpower and equipment for assistance in control of fires. Twiss informed the board that one of their requirements is that all equipment operators have taken Emergency Management certification classes, and that County Highway Department employees would be required to become certified. No action was taken. Twiss also reported that the Oglala Sioux Tribe / BIA has proposed drawing up a mutual aid agreement with the Kadoka Fire Department, and may include Jackson County for the use of county equipment in building fire guards. Information was received from surrounding counties on costs charged to title companies for records filed in the Register of Deeds office, fees charged for assessment records, and fees charged for election records.

Discussion resumed on fees charged to title companies for Register of Deeds records. Jackson County had received a request from Walworth County Title Company to purchase scanned records from the Jackson County Register of Deeds office once all the records have been scanned. Mitzi Mitchell, Register of Deeds reported that there are a total of 156 books in the Register of Deeds office, and she has 51 books left to scan. Information was received that Jones County had received a similar request, and the Jones County Commission established a fee of $125.00 per book for scanned records. Following discussion, Bennett moved, Twiss seconded, that Jackson County set a fee of $125.00 per book for scanned records in the Jackson County Register of Deeds office. Further discussion was held on various scenarios that may arise. Bennett moved that his motion be amended to: Jackson County set a fee of $125.00 per book for the entire collection of scanned documents in the Jackson County Register of Deeds office at this time. Motion carried with the following vote: Bonenberger, nay; Bennett, yea, Denke, yea; Twiss, yea; Stilwell, yea. No action was taken on fees to charge in other offices. Counties were provided with comparison of projected license plate fees and actual license plate fees collected through June 2012 by the S. D. Dept. of Revenue. The statewide figures were affected by 168,000 vehicles for July and August 2011 being registered in June 2011 in order to avoid the license increase. Information on counties which have implemented a wheel tax was presented to the board. Forty-six counties have implemented a wheel tax to generate additional funding for county highways and bridges. State laws on implementation of a wheel tax were also presented to the board. No action was taken at this time. The board recessed for lunch and reconvened at 1:00 p.m. with all members present. Mitch Olney, Highway Supt., and Kolette Struble, Highway Sec. were also present. Mitch Olney reported that T. F. Luke and Sons have completed crushing and stockpiling gravel at the Kennedy and May Pits. T. F. Luke and Sons is requesting releases on both contracts be provided by Jackson County and the landowners. States Attorney Van Gorp is to be contacted to draw up releases on both pits. Twiss requested that Mitch Olney have a sample of the gravel from the May Pit tested. Denke reported that the highway crew did a good job on maintenance work done on the Long Valley Road (CH 16). Denke reminded Mitch Olney that Dennis Neyens had requested a couple of loads of gravel on the road leading to their place. Mitch Olney reported that they have been working on blow-out on Fish Creek Road and other roads in the Long Valley area. Twiss reported blow-outs that have formed on the May Road and other roads in the southwest part of the county. Mitch Olney reported that parts for the Tiger mowers are ordered through Butler Machinery, and delivery is very slow as the parts come from Canada. He reported they are again waiting for u-joints. Discussion was held on mower repair costs. Twiss suggested they check with Whisler Bearing to see if they can get parts. Discussion was held on Woods mowers available through Kennedy Implement. Mitch Olney reported that the John Deere loader has a fuel system problem. He also reported that the back glass has been installed in the JCB loader, and that glass in the door of the JCB loader is being replaced. Once all bills are in on the JCB loader, the bills will be sent to the county’s insurance company. Mitch Olney reported that DENR has told him concrete rubble can be used as riprap as long as no rebar is sticking out. He reported that it is planned to place concrete rubble at Lost Dog Creek on Riverview Road. Twiss requested he be notified when the project begins. Report was made that the gravel screener has been rented from Morris, Inc. and plans are to start on the road to T. K. Sampson’s. A gravel contract to purchase gravel from Dennis Sharp was presented to the board. No amount of gravel was specified in the contract. The board requested that the contract be changed to show 10,000 (+/-) ton of gravel and the revised contract be presented to Dennis Sharp for signing. States Attorney Van Gorp met with the board and reviewed the revised gravel contract. He approved of the wordage of the contract. The board requested that States Attorney Van Gorp draw up releases on the Kennedy and May Pits to be signed by Jackson County and the landowners for presentation to T. F. Luke and Sons.

Bob Fanning, Plant Pathology Field Specialist • 605-842-1267 Drought Meetings for Cow-Calf Producers SDSU Field and State Extension Specialists will be holding 6 meetings across South Dakota during the week of September 10th. These meetings are en effort to prepare cow/calf producers for the upcoming winter during a drought. Plans are to address the nutritional, reproductive, and economic issues facing cow/calf producers following a summer drought. The dates, times and locations of the meetings are as follows: 9/10 – Sale Barn, 3:00 pm MT, Martin, SD; 9/11 – Virginian, 7:00 PM CT, Miller, SD; 9/13 – Ranchers Grill, 7:00 PM MT, Belle Fourche, SD; 9/13 – Sale Barn, 7:00 PM CT, Tripp, SD; and 9/17 – Sale Barn, 4:30 PM CT. Refreshments will be provided. For more information call 605-842-1267 or visit http://igrow.org/. Insect Pests and Winter Wheat Planting Date The recommended planting dates for winter wheat in SD are September 15 – October 20. To protect against insect and mite pests that attack winter wheat, the later the better. Waiting until the middle or end of the recommended range of dates to plant exposes the wheat crop to insects and mites for less time. If grasshoppers are a threat in your area, double-seeding the edges of fields to compensate for grasshopper feeding and scouting regularly are recommended to prevent stand losses. Eight to fourteen adults per square yard in the field or 21-40 adults per square yard in field margins are the action thresholds for grasshoppers. Another pest to take seriously before planting winter wheat is the wheat curl mite. Wheat curl mites transmit Wheat Streak Mosaic Virus (WSMV). The mites cause minimal damage due to feeding, but the virus disease they transmit can cause very significant losses. Wheat infected with WSMV is stunted, and has mottled, streaked leaves. Streaks on leaves of infected plants are greenyellow in color, and are not continuous. If plants become infected in the fall, yield losses can be severe. Scouting for this mite is not needed because the only effective management strategy for this mite is prevention. These mites cannot be effectively managed by pesticide applications, and preventing infection is the key in managing them and avoiding the disease. To prevent infestations of the wheat curl mite and infection with WSMV, volunteer wheat should be destroyed and a 10-14 day volunteer wheat-free period should be maintained before planting winter wheat in the fall. No-till producers can use non-selective herbicides to keep the fields clean, where tillage can be effective if farming conventionally. These pests use volunteer wheat, grassy weeds as alternative hosts so maintaining good sanitation practices and managing grassy weeds is essential. Preventative measures should be taken especially in high-risk areas or if wheat emerges before corn, sorghum, or millet in adjacent fields dries down.

Beans: Affordable Protein Dry beans have been a vital food staple for various cultures throughout the world for over 10,000 years. In the United States, beans have provided important nutrients through national economic disasters like the Great Depression, as well as individual hard times. Whether dry or canned, using beans to stretch family budgets continues to be a common thrifty method since they are an economical source of protein. An ounce equivalent (1/4 cup) of dry beans is a bargain at only 6 cents for cooked dry beans and 18 cents for canned beans. Beans are an ideal way to eat well without spending a lot of money. Black beans, pinto beans, kidney beans, and lima beans are a few examples of bean types. For maximum health benefits, the USDA recommends that adults eat more than three cups of beans each week. Beans are low in fat, sodium and cholesterol-free. Individuals can count beans as vegetables or protein according to the USDA’s MyPlate. Vegetables are measured by cups; 1 cup cooked beans equals 1 cup of vegetables. Protein foods are measured in ounces; 1/4 cup cooked beans equals 1 ounce equivalent for the protein foods group. Age, gender and activity level determine the recommended amounts for both food groups. MyPlate shares a cost effective, 2000 calorie food pattern includes beans that athttp://1.usa.gov/wiJQSP.
Beans are also high in both soluble and insoluble fiber which aids digestion. Fiber helps reduce food cravings, which supports weight management. A 1/2 cup of cooked dry beans provides 6 grams of fiber. The recommended daily intake of fiber is 14 grams per 1000 daily calories. Beans contain folate, an essential nutrient that protects against heart disease and a variety of vitamins and minerals including iron, potassium, and calcium. To prepare beans, add 10 cups of cold water for each pound (2 cups) of dry beans you plan to cook. Bring the water to a boil and continue boiling for one to three minutes. Cover the pot. Let stand for 4 hours, then drain and rinse the soaked beans. Lastly, cover beans with fresh water. Serve plain or use in a favorite recipe. Two cups of dry beans equals 4 to 5 cups of cooked beans and 1-1/2 cups of cooked beans equals 1 can of drained beans. To limit potential gastrointestinal side effects, slowly introduce beans in the diet. When using dry beans, drain the soak water and rinse before cooking. When using canned beans, rinse them before adding to recipes. Obtain great bean recipes at http://www.beansforhealth.com/ courtesy of the U.S. Dry Bean Council. Improve your health and keep more money in your pocket by serving beans. They are a nutrient-dense source of low-cost protein. It’s something to “toot” about!

Landowners and hunters asked to report dead deer
The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department is asking landowners and hunters to be on the lookout for dead deer. This is the time of the year when deer tend to succumb to hemorrhagic disease, also known as epizootic hemorrhagic disease (EHD), or blue tongue. The disease is common in whitetailed deer and is typically detected in late summer or early fall. The virus is spread by a biting midge and causes extensive internal hemorrhaging. Many deer exhibit no clinical signs and appear perfectly healthy; other deer may have symptoms such as respiratory distress, fever, and swelling of the tongue. With highly virulent strains of the virus, deer can die in three days or less. Affected deer are often found in low-lying areas or near rivers or ponds, where they go to combat the high fever. People who see sick deer or find several dead deer in one locale are asked to contact their local conservation officers or call the Pierre GFP office at 605-773-5913. EHD outbreaks can be locally severe but rarely affect more than 25 percent of a local deer population. In rare cases, the disease will affect more than 50 percent. Deer may continue dying from hemorrhagic disease until a hard freeze reduces the midge populations that carry the disease. EHD is not infectious to humans. For more information on the EHD virus visit http://www.vet.uga.edu/scwds/pdfs/ HD.pdf
