Students share summer experiences from Girls State and Boys State
throughout the five-day conference. Kwincy Ferguson spent her time in Vermillion with other girls from across the state. She had quite a different experience. She learned about state government and had the opportunity to run for different positions in the government. The emphasis at Girls State was the judicial part of government. Ferguson was able to take a tour of the courthouse and the jail in Vermillion, and she participated in several mock trials. She enjoyed her experience greatly. “Girls State was very educational,” stated Ferguson. “While I was at Girls State I learned about our state government and our city governments. We were put into cities while we were there and then our cities got to have meetings to learn how our city government works. We got to run for positions in our city government. I was a city council woman and learned what the city council women do for our city.” After learning about local city government and running for different positions, Ferguson started learning about state government. The girls took tests to tell them whether they would be able to run for judicial offices, executive offices, or legislative offices. Ferguson took the bar exam so she could go into the judicial part of our government. All of this precipitated her participation in the mock trials at Girls State. John Thune also spoke to Ferguson’s group, talking to them about the Senate. After Thune finished his speech, he talked to the girls about their futures. All of the girls were granted photo opportunities with the senator from South Dakota. “Girls State not only was educational, but it was very fun. I got to meet a lot of new kids my age that were also interested in our government,” Ferguson commented. --submitted by Teresa Shuck
Ownership inspection required for all west river livestock
Drought in western South Dakota has accelerated fall cattle sales, and the state Brand Board reminds livestock producers that ownership inspections of cattle, horses and mules are required before their sale, slaughter or removal from the Livestock Ownership Inspection Area, located west of the Missouri River. No one may transport any cattle, horses or mules from the Livestock Ownership Inspection area without an inspection by the Brand Board, unless the shipper possesses a local inspection certificate, market clearance document, shipper’s permit, convoy certificate, lifetime horse transportation permit or an annual horse permit. A local inspection certificate is valid for transportation of livestock out of the inspection area only on the date issued. A shipper’s permit may be acquired up to 48 hours prior to shipment. Enforcement checkpoints will be set up along the border of the Livestock Ownership Inspection Area to check for violations of South Dakota brand laws. Livestock being removed from the ownership inspection area without authorization may be impounded by any law enforcement officer until the animals are inspected for ownership by an authorized brand inspector. The penalty for unauthorized removal is a Class 1 misdemeanor, which carries up to a $2,000 fine, a maximum of one year in jail, or both. To receive a brand inspection, the shipper must contact a brand inspector and allow the inspector ample time to provide it. A shipper’s permit may be acquired by calling the Brand Board office. For more information on how to acquire brand inspections a shipper’s permit, call the South Dakota State Brand Board at (877) 5740054 or visit www.sdbrandboard.com
Kadoka Nursing Home Resident of the Month
Pauline (Polly) Kujawa was born to John and Gertrude Heid on May 27, 1923. She joined one brother and two sisters. She attended Cathedral High School in St. Cloud, Minn. and later worked as a phone/switchboard operator for a transportation company. Polly enjoyed boating, swimming in the lake, roller skating, playing the accordion and violin, movies and dances as a young lady. Polly met Ed Kujawa when her good friend, Retta (Ed’s sister), introduced them. They were married November 24, 1949, in Luxemburg, Minn. The Kujawas lived in Kadoka and he worked for JF Anderson Lumber Co., which they bought in 1961 and renamed to Kadoka Lumber & Supply Co. The business was sold to Jim and Arlene Kujawa in 1991. During this time they had six children: Joanne, Jim, Ken, Karen, Rita and Rhonda. Additions to the family include 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren. Polly has been a member of Our Lady of Victory Catholic Church and taught CCD classes, American Legion Auxiliary, Altar Society, PTA and helped organize blood drives. She has enjoyed sewing, bridge club and planting flowers. For over 20 years she walked two or more miles every morning. And, she made time to go to daily Mass early in the morning before making breakfast for her family. Holiday traditions were special for the family, including oyster stew, chili and apple pie for Christmas Eve, corn flake wreaths and divinity for Christmas and red velvet cake for Valentine’s Day. Polly’s children recall that their mom was famous for her homemade donuts. Often when she made donuts for a bake sale, they would sell before she walked in the door. She always had fresh homemade baked goods on the kitchen counter then they came home from school, and she made special outfits for the children when they were growing up. Polly not only cooked for her family, but she was a cook at the nursing home for many years. She was a devoted mother who was home for her children and attended sporting events for all six of her children. Polly and Ed enjoyed many trips, including Florida, Branson, Mo., the Rose Bowl and travels to Chicago, Minneapolis, Kansas City, Phoenix and Denver visiting her children. Polly lived in the same house in the southwest corner of Kadoka for 61 years before she became a resident at the Kadoka Nursing Home on December 14, 2010. Congratulations, Polly, for being the August Resident of the Month at the Kadoka Nursing Home.
Representing Kadoka … Kwincy Ferguson (L) and Kenar VanderMay were selected to attend Girls State and Boys State by the Kadoka American Legion and Legion Auxiliary from Post 27 in Kadoka. --photo by Ronda Dennis
Kenar VanderMay and Kwincy Ferguson embarked on an adventure to learn what they could about our state government and how it functions. They were selected as representatives from Kadoka to attend Boys State and Girls State from May 28 through June 1. VanderMay ventured to Pierre, where he learned about state government and some of the issues facing the state today. He attended the Governor’s Banquet and had the honor of listening to Governor Daugaard speak to those in attendance. Daugaard stressed the importance of young people, like VanderMay and Ferguson, leading the state in the future. He emphasized the strength of human potential and that “talent alone cannot beat persistence and determination” Daugaard ended his portion of the banquet by telling the students about his journey to Afghanistan. Upon returning from Afghanistan, Daugaard told the boys of visiting the National Guard here in South Dakota and thanking them for their sacrifice in keeping this great nation great. Governor Daugaard was not the only politician that VanderMay had the pleasure to hear. Senator John Thune also spoke to the boys and answered their questions about the state of our nation. Thune told of his aspirations to be involved in politics and emphasized the importance of character. He stated, “Character is the qualities and attributes that define you as a person, and great leaders understand what it means to serve.” The importance of being involved in community and serving and leading was emphasized
USDA authorizes emergency haying and grazing of CRP acres in South Dakota
USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director Craig Schaunaman, has announced that in response to drought conditions, FSA has authorized emergency haying and grazing use of Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres for all South Dakota counties. "South Dakota producers interested in emergency haying and grazing of CRP must contact their local FSA offices to obtain approval to hay or graze CRP," said Schaunaman. Any approved emergency haying and grazing of CRP cannot begin until August 2, 2012, which is after the end of the primary nesting and brood rearing season in South Dakota. "Producers will also need to obtain a modified conservation plan from the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) that includes haying and grazing requirements," he said. Under CRP emergency haying and grazing provisions, haying activity may not exceed August 31, 2012, and grazing activity may not exceed September 30, 2012. The acreage eligible for emergency haying and grazing is limited to those conservation practices eligible under the emergency release of CRP for haying and grazing purposes. Currently there are approximately 532,000 acres of CRP available for emergency haying and grazing in South Dakota. There are an additional 19,000 acres of Conservation Practice 25, Rare and Declining Habitat available for emergency grazing purposes only. Wetland and farmable wetland conservation practices are considered to be environmentally sensitive; therefore, are not eligible for emergency haying and grazing. On July 11, 2012, Secretary Vilsack said that the 25 percent CRP payment reduction will be reduced to 10 percent for all 2012 emergency haying and grazing authorizations in order to provide greater flexibility to producers in response to the drought conditions. Under emergency haying and grazing provisions, producers are reminded that the same CRP acreage cannot be both hayed and/or grazed at the same time. For example, if 50 percent of a field or contiguous field is hayed, the remaining unhayed 50 percent cannot be grazed; it must remain unhayed and ungrazed for wildlife habitat purposes. In an effort to proactively serve South Dakota farmers and ranchers, the South Dakota Farm Service Agency and the South Dakota Department of Agriculture are encouraging producers to utilize the on-line hay finder services available via www.hayexchange.com and www.haybarn.com. For more information and to request approval for emergency haying and grazing of CRP acres contact your local FSA office.
Rush Funeral Home moving to new location
had to do the ambulance part or the cemetery work. In 1977, they moved to Sioux Falls, where he worked as a funeral director until moving to Philip in December 1983. “I was 37, and my goal in life was to own my own funeral home. I thought, if I’m going to work that many hours, I might as well work for myself,” said Jack. He had previously held a high school summer job at the Wall Drug Store. So, when he heard from a supply salesman that the funeral home owned by W.E. “Woody” and Ruth Woodall was for sale, he investigated. In 1983, the Rushes moved to Philip to operate the funeral home, as well as the visitation chapels in Wall and in Kadoka. Robert “Bob” Coyle stayed on and became Jack’s right-hand man. “He was always there and willing to help, and Sharon, Bob’s wife, answered the phone,” said Jack. “After Bob died (July 4, 2000), Gayle came aboard and has worked faithfully ever since; a real asset to the funeral home. Someone has to be able to answer the phones 24/7, know what is going on and able to answer questions,” said Jack. Gayle graduated from Mount Marty College with a degree in social work. “I’ve never had a social work job in my life, but I use social work every day of my life,” said Gayle. Jack’s sister has also come on board this year to shoulder some of the office load. Jack joked, “Maybe this place will be a bed and breakfast; I’m going to sleep here and Gayle’s going to feed me?” The Rushes have raised three children, Lisa Moon, Creighton, Bridgett Stark, Breese, Ill., and Daniel John (D.J.), Philip. D.J. is now the second half of the ownership/management of Rush Funeral Home. “I grew up here, in this house, and around it (the business), so I knew it was definitely what I did not want to do!” said D.J. Only after three years in the Army, and then earning an economics degree from South Dakota State University, did he consider entering into the funeral home business. By January 2001, D.J. had completed his mortuary science degree at the University of Minnesota and his apprenticeship in Brookings. His mortuary graduating class started with around 30 students, with half not continuing. “The attrition rate isn’t very good,” said D.J. Now, he is part of the business. “You know just about everybody and it’s worked out well, most of the time. The work environment is okay. There are tough days in whatever you are doing.” “I think it is a good move; more space,” said D.J. “When I came here, I think he (Jack) had one desk. Now we have three computers and four printers. We just grew out of it.” Continued on page 2
Rush Funeral Home … Jack (L), Gayle, Margaret and D.J. Rush share memories of their business and excitement of moving to a new location. --photo by Del Bartels
--by Del Bartels The Rush Funeral Home’s main chapel will be moving from 203 W. Pine Street to 165 East Highway 14, in Philip. The new building should be completed by this fall. “Gayle and I have lived in a funeral home, or next to one, most of our married life,” said Jack Rush. This move of the funeral home, and the conversion of the current site to a traditional home, will change that. “This was actually built as a funeral home, but has been added on to three times,” said Rush. Jack and Gayle met in 1967 and married in 1968, while Jack was completing his apprenticeship in Madison. He had graduated from the Wisconsin Institute of Mortuary Science in Milwaukee. Originally, Jack had become interested in the funeral profession after a neighbor boy was killed and Jack was one of the pallbearers. In that era, the work of the funeral director could include being the county coroner as well as running the ambulance. The hearse, actually a “combination unit,” converted into an ambulance when needed. That is only one way the funeral home business has changed over the years. It used to include digging the graves, making the surface vaults, performing the “full funeral service, then changing clothes and filling in the grave,” said Jack. Today, there are specific gravediggers and the vaults are brought in from suppliers. The Rushes moved to Chamberlain for a short time, where Jack’s duties still included ambulance work. In 1969, now in the big city of Sioux City, Iowa, he no longer

Jackson County FSA
Michael Goetzinger, County Executive Director
DISASTER UPDATE The latest US Drought Monitor has most of Jackson County in a D2 or severe with the north west rated a D3 or extreme drought. Jackson has applied for and should be named as a disaster area by the USDA Secretary of Ag. Let’s look at what disaster USDA/FSA programs/options are/or could be available: Emergency Loan Program-administered by the FSA Farm Loan Program (FLP) team. Emergency Conservation Program (ECP)-this is for emergency livestock water (permanent & temporary practices). Currently no funding for this program but counties are asking to implement itstay tuned with more to follow on this program. Non-insured Assistance Program (NAP)-pasture, forage crops, grass hay or most crops not covered by Federal Crop Insurance coverage can be covered by NAP coverage. This coverage is available from FSA for a nominal fee. Producers who obtained ’12 NAP coverage by the applicable deadlines need to make sure that a timely Notice of Loss is on file at the FSA County Office in order to earn any NAP benefits. Emergency release of CRP acres or haying or grazing-this has been released and certain provisions apply. Contact the FSA County Office if you have CRP acres and wish to hay or graze it under either the emergency release or managed provisions. As most of you know, Congress is currently writing another Farm Bill. Talk is that the Crop Disaster program or SURE and Livestock Indemnity Program (LIP or dead cow) may be again in the bill. These programs ended October of 2011. We encourage producers to continue to take pictures of their dead livestock lost due to adverse weather and keep on with 3rd party certifications, for if the LIP program should come back. Plus other disaster programs may also be authorized as a result of this historic drought affecting an estimated 65% of the country. Please don’t hesitate to call or stop by your local FSA County Office if you have any questions and/or need more information on these or any programs administered by FSA. Of course, outside of FSA programs-many producers are inquiring about a Disaster Declaration because of how livestock sales during a natural disaster (drought) are treated by the IRS. See your tax professional for more details on this topic FINAL DAY The Jackson County FSA office can trace its roots to 1954 when it was the Jackson/Washabaugh Office with Muriel Drury at the helm. My association and friendship began with the next head of what, by then, was known as the Agricultural Stabilization Conservation Service or the ASCS office, Stanton ‘Beef ’ Uhlir. He gave a new ‘green horn’ lots of good advice. Then came Steven Olson, Marcia Bunger and Brian Stewart as what is known as the County Executive Directors or CED of the office. All became good friends and it was my turn to give some advice and get info/advice from the county we always considered our ‘good neighbor to the north’. Then it was my pleasure and also sad duty to be Jackson County’s last ‘acting’ CED. On Tuesday, July 24 an open house was held to honor, thank and say ‘good bye’ to the last two full-time employees of the Jackson County FSA Office. Colleen Peterson has over 24 years of service to then ASCS and now, FSA. She will be heading to the Haakon County FSA in Philip. Stevie Uhlir has over 23 years of service and will be going to the Jones County FSA in Murdo. In what was truly proof of the appreciation of their dedicated service to the producers, land owners, other Jackson County customers, our sister agency-NRCS and business associates, the turnout for this send off was really impressive…the town, the county, turned out in force to show their gratitude for the outstanding service Colleen and Stevie have provided over the years. I know both Stevie and Colleen appreciate the many cards, flowers, gifts and words of encouragement given to them by a grateful community, county residents and friends. Friday, July 27 was the last day that the Jackson County FSA at Kadoka was open to serve its producers and customers.Haakon County in Philip is where the files are going. In most cases producers can choose to transfer to their choice of any convenient FSA office for the next crop year. Many asked why and we were told budget cuts and government ‘belt tightening’ were the reasons to consolidate some FSA County offices. All I know for sure is that Kadoka and Jackson County will truly miss this Main Street fixture and its staff…
South Dakota Cattlemen Association (SDCA) applauds the withdrawal of proposed livestock reporting rule
On July 13, 2012, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) withdrew its proposed Clean Water Act (CWA) Section 308 CAFO (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations) Reporting Rule. The proposed rule was the result of an out-of-court settlement agreement between EPA and environmental activists and would have required all cattle operations meeting the regulatory definition of a CAFO to report a long list of information about their operations to EPA, including the precise type and location of the livestock operation. EPA planned to place the information gathered on the agency’s website in a searchable database. The South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association (SDCA) voiced concern, fearing extremists could access the information with the intent to do harm to individual cattle operations or the nation’s food system. Bryan Nagel, a cattle feeder from Avon and chairman of the South Dakota Cattlemen’s Association’s Cattle Feeder Council stated, “This move by EPA is a victory for cattlemen and illustrates the importance of the beef cattle community working together to educate government officials. The importance of cattlemen engaging in the regulatory process and voicing your concerns is most evident in this type of win.” “Results like this verify the benefit of membership in organizations such as SDCA and the National Cattlemen’s Beef Association. The collective voices of cattlemen from across the state and nation were heard, preventing overreaching regulation and quieting the extremists looking to harm livestock producers,” stated Todd Wilkinson, Second Vice President of SDCA and a cattle feeder from De Smet. In comments on the propose rule, SDCA pointed out regulatory agencies such as the South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources already collect and monitor CAFOs through their permitting process and encouraged EPA to seek existing data sources to meet the goals of the proposed rule. In withdrawing the rule, EPA noted they will gather and evaluate information on CAFOs obtained from already established relationships with states and federal partners.

Rush Funeral Home to move to new location
Continued from front page D.J. believes the best thing about the funeral home business is the process. “You probably know the family. The next four to five days you are with them, you see the way they process grief. They are healing. You hope you’ve been a little part of that. Maybe that’s why you do it.” “The worst thing is personal scheduling. You can’t schedule anything, family vacations, etc., it doesn’t matter,” said D.J. Jack said, “One thing I didn’t want to do was be tied down like on the dairy farm I grew up on. We had to be there every morning and every evening. This is totally different; we being a family owned and operated business – we are 24/7. We’ve survived from 1967 to today, 45 years of the funeral business. It has been a great move coming to western South Dakota and we have no regrets.” The new location was once the Park-Inn Cafe and gas station, before it became a Kingdom Hall of the Jehovah Witnesses. “When it was a cafe, I used to go up there and have coffee every day,” said Jack. Today, the public opinion of the funeral home business is leaning away from being unapproached until needed. Now coming in can include coffee while people discuss pre-planning and other more modern aspects of funeral homes. School student visits now occur, with funeral directors teaching students the different aspects of death and dying. The Rush Funeral Home website, www.rushfuneralhome. com, addresses the cost of a funeral, which includes the six percent sales tax for materials and services. The site explains what funeral directors do, different aspects and options of funeral arrangements, and how the directors can help the family. The new building will eventually be 4,917 square feet, with a 36x36 garage. It will be Occupational Safety and Health Administration compliant; including the air exchange unit in the embalming room set to exchange the air 14 times per hour. The layout of the viewing room will be for easier visiting of the attendees. Actual funeral services will still be held in churches or other family chosen places. “We’re only assuming by more room, D.J. can do his mass communication, website, videos ... he can do more. That is where the funeral home business is changing. You have to be capable of supplying both the old and the new. We are here to do what a family wants and when they want it,” said Jack
Natural Resources drought assitance available for farmers/ranchers
Jeffrey Zimprich, State Conservationist, of USDA’s Natural Resources Conservation Service, Huron, says field offices around the state are ready to provide information and assistance to farmers hit hard by the drought. NRCS administers a number of Farm Bill programs that provide technical and financial assistance to farmers and ranchers to install conservation practices. Zimprich said, “The prolonged and extreme heat temperatures coupled with lack of rain is creating situations in some areas of South Dakota where some producers may be forced to make critical changes to their operation.” The South Dakota Governor’s Drought Task Force web site is an excellent resource: http://drought.sd.gov/. NRCS is also encouraging producers seeking advice to contact their district conservationist at the local field office. The NRCS, along with many agencies, are working to help producers with their present droughtrelated crop and livestock production needs, the agencies strength is in working with the producers to cooperatively identify the conservation practices and management that will minimize the effects of future droughts. “NRCS has a lot we can offer producers technically, but at this time of the year, there is not a lot of financial assistance,” says Zimprich. “The financial assistance funds have been obligated for this fiscal year 2012. National funding at the present time is being targeted toward the hardest hit drought areas across the Nation. He explains, “Financial funding may become available after October 1, 2012 depending on the passage on a new Farm Bill.” “While the weather situation and soil conditions are similar to the 1930s,” says Zimprich, “farmers and ranchers may be, in general, better coping with the drought because of the lessons we learned from the Dust Bowl. Now, producers using conservation practices have their natural resources in a better condition than 75 years ago.” Crop residue management helps prevent precipitation loss by reducing runoff and soil temperatures and evaporation. Ponds, pipelines and tanks can help distribute water to where forage is located. Grazing plans and fencing can manage livestock grazing to keep forage plants healthy and deep rooted to maximize plant survival and productivity. Cover crops can improve soil health to improve water storage in the soil profile as well as provide additional grazing. Livestock producers have been especially hard hit and NRCS has grazing specialists that provide suggestions about range and pasture management and options and consideration for forage and water management. Zimprich says, “It’s important for producers to have a backup plan such as deferred or rotational grazing, alternative water sources, combining herds, reducing livestock numbers, etc.” “Producers with conservation contracts with the agency who cannot meet established practice installation deadlines will have some flexibility in meeting their obligations,” said Zimprich. Zimprich suggests that producers go over their contracts with their district conservationist to determine if practice implantation schedules need to be modified. Some programs allow for practice substitution or rescheduling of installation dates.” He adds, “Assistance is also available for those farmers that have established practices which have failed because of drought.” NRCS encourages farmers that are considering installing any engineered practices (such as dams, grassed waterways, water and sediment control basins) to also consider resource conditions before construction. “These practices cost a lot of money and we don’t want to see them fail. One of the biggest concerns is a lack of soil moisture that would prohibit proper compaction.” NRCS can advise landowners and contractors on optimum moisture levels to achieve the best outcome. Farmers and ranchers with water, land or crop management concerns can get help from NRCS through the development of a conservation plan. The Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) has continuous signup. Zimprich encourages farmers and ranchers to come in to their local office for ideas and future options for recovering from the drought. “It also helps us,” he says, “to get an idea of the needs out on the South Dakota landscape so we can be ready if and when conservation program funding becomes available.” Conservation plans can include drought planning and are free. Being prepared helps producers to continue operations even in the most severe conditions. Contact the NRCS staff in your local USDA Service Center for information about mitigating drought damage and specific Farm Bill programs.

EverBlest Youth Choir concert August 3
EverBlest will perform at the Concordia Lutheran Church at 7 p.m. on Friday, August 3. Their concert will consist of Christian choral music - a blend of traditional and contemporary - as well as excerpts from Richard Wilson’s musical, He lived the Good Life. The concert will be performed as a part of EverBlest’s tour to the Colorado Rockies and back this summer. This is the 25th year of EverBlest Youth Choir, which is an interdenominational choir, an outreach ministry program of Cambridge Evangelical Lutheran Church. It has been a vital part of the youth culture in Cambridge, welcoming any high school youth who wish to participate in the mission of sharing faith and glorifying Jesus Christ through the gift of music. The summer mission tour is an integral part of the identity of EverBlest. This year’s tour, which is scheduled for August 2-11, will consist of seven concerts in 10 days in four states. In previous years, they have travelled to Mexico, Canada, Virginia beach, and most recently, toured New England.
1 Thessalonians 5:24 Have you ever felt discouraged about trying to live the Christian life? If your efforts to make a difference in the world seem fruitless, a principle about following The Keys to Sucess Christ could change your outlook. The Lord served others in love, and His actions had tremendous impact in the world. How was He so effective? Scripture tells us that Jesus did not speak or act on His own initiative but, rather, depended upon His Father abiding in Him to do the work (John 14:10). And we are to follow His example. Yet we often attempt to serve out of our own abilities, intelligence, and reasoning power. Even though we may pour great effort and long hours into ministry, these alone won't produce fruitfulness, because we'e not ministering as the Lord intended. True service is commissioned, empowered, and blessed by God alone. It may be our hands that are working, but our Father is the One at work. And the glory belongs to Him, not us. What comfort this should give us! The Lord is not looking for people who are extremely talented. He will use all who are willing to let His Spirit work through them. And we can be confident that He will provide all we need in order to do whatever He asks. Who among us can serve the living God? Truthfully, no one can. Genuine service occurs only when we allow the Almighty to pour Himself through us; we are mere vessels. Even if the impact is not obvious to us, we know that God has achieved Hispurpose. And above all, He is glorified.

Lookin’ Around

Love-Hate Relationships
Are you on cordial terms with your bathroom scale, or do you perhaps have a love/hate relationship? If you’re like me, you cast a friendly glance at your scale on those days it says you’ve lost a pound or two. On other days, it might get cussed at for reminding you that you still weigh too much (or too little in a few cases.) This is not to say that the scale is anyway at fault for just telling the truth. It is, however, easier to cuss the weight-measurement device than to adjust the eating habits that are adding poundage to your frame. Nevertheless, I still check my weight fairly often since I don’t want to turn into a complete blimp. If the reading is adverse, I leave the chocolate and ice cream alone and try not to overeat at all and certainly not on those things like chips and fries that have way too much grease. Sometimes I’m successful in lowering my intake, and sometimes I just maintain the status quo. I’ve been doing fairly well of late and have actually lost a pound or two, but vigilance is the key and sometimes I’m not very vigilant. Mirrors can be similar to scales in that, in most cases, they insist on telling the truth. This is disgusting. Why can’t they lie a little once in a while? Do they really have to state so clearly that your hair is a mess, you need a shave, and your eyebrows have gone all bushy again? I don’t always want to know those things or take steps to improve my appearance. Then we come to thermometers. Ours have been reading over a hundred degrees this summer on far too many days. Those temperatures are for people who live quite a bit farther south like in Texas, Arizona, etc. We aren’t used to that much heat for very long. Sure, we always have a few days over a hundred every summer and often close to the fourth of July, but they usually don’t just go on and on like they have recently. This last winter, the thermometers were fairly kind and seldom showed temps below zero. That is just fine, but this hot stuff is for the birds. Adding machines have been known to raise my blood pressure, too, when they indicate that my accounts are out of balance. They may say I’m off three cents, three dollars, or three-thousand, but the result is the same. I’m going to have to go back and find the mistake. I normally use a system that checks things as I go, but I still sometime come up with problems. It might be I’ve written a one like a seven or vice versa. Other times my eights look like threes. I try to write clearly and precisely, but errors are still going to occasionally creep in. Neither are cell phones a complete delight. They have been known to receive calls that you’d rather not take. People might dial your number and try to talk you into doing things you don’t want to do, or give time or money you don’t want to spare. Particularly distressing are calls trying to sell you stuff or enlist your support of some charity that you somehow distrust or don’t care about. Political messages may be the worst although many of those are recorded ones that you can hang up on without guilt. There are even those days when you strongly feel like picking up your computer and simply tossing it out the door. It is being difficult and not doing at all what you want it to do. You may have to fiddle for hours getting the dumb thing working right or even haul it off to the repair shop. Occasionally all you can do is go out and buy a new one since the old one is completely nuts and will no longer do much of anything useful. But back to scales. My mother had one she would never let us replace. It weighed her about five to ten pounds light, which was much to her liking. She knew it was lying to her, but she didn’t care. No one was to run off with her favorite scale, and I think it is still sitting around her old house although she’s been gone for over a decade now. You just never know when you might need a scale that weighs light. Incidentally, a lot of people don’t go to church or read the Bible because either thing might indicate that adjustments need to be made. Sometimes we simply do not want to change although basically we know we should and would be better off if we did. On the whole, however, we need to know the truth about our weight, our appearance, and our lifestyle. It is not a good idea to “shoot the messenger,” as it were. We’re usually better off swallowing the truth and going forward with fixing whatever needs it. Right now, though, I’m heading off to bed. I’m not going to weigh myself first or look in the mirror. I’m tired, and those things will just have to wait until tomorrow when I’m rested and can deal with unwelcome information. Then we’ll see what needs to be done and give it a shot.
the deck. One is acting normally in producing fruit, but the other one is a large good-looking plant that to date hasn’t bothered to have any blossoms so it can’t set on fruit. As a result, it doesn’t appear to be worth much except to provide greenery. Delores Bonenberger said they were through with haying now and on to odd jobs of fixing fence and whatever needs work. The hay crop was not extensive this year with only one cutting, but they are glad for the one. Jim Willert said he has been trying to get most of his work done in the mornings of late to avoid the heat. Son Jeff continues to roam the country participating in rodeos. He didn’t ride at Deadwood this year but has been lots of other places. He is expected home a few days this week before heading back out. Jo Rodgers spent time working at the Parmalee and St. Francis post offices this week. She has been helping to get things set up with new staff after others have retired. The Presho post office is on the agenda for this coming week and probably a day or two at Murdo where she is actually the postmaster. This weekend, Jory Rodgers went camping near Chamberlain with a group put together by his aunt, Diana Coller. He came home rosy with a bit of sunburn. Next weekend on Saturday the 4th, a bunch of local families are getting together to hold a rummage sale at JR’s there in Belvidere.

Marjorie Anne Letellier • 462-6228 Life! We have been together Through pleasant and cloudy weather; “Tis, hard to part when friends are dear, Perhaps ‘twill cost a sigh, a tear. Anna Barbauld Monday and Tuesday evenings, June Ring’s grandson, Matthew, was an overnight guest at Bruce and Jessie Ring home. Wednesday, June Ring and grandchildren, Matthew and Stephanie, took their branding iron and were part in the branding party at the Mellette County Museum in White River. Early Tuesday morning, the James Letelliers went to Philip. Marjorie Anne enjoyed breakfast with Ellen Totton at the nursing home while James kept an appointment. It has been a welcome of relief to everyone to have the fires on the Rosebud and our surrounding under control. We appreciate the hard-working crews near and far we are enjoying clear skies and fresh air. We were almost smothered with smoke and hazy skies for a few days last week; the cooler temperatures are more than welcome. Gale and JoAnne Letellier and Gary visited in the Bill Letellier home on Tuesday. Wednesday, the Jason Burma family traveled to Platte and visited the Grandpa and Grandma Harry and Ruth Burma. Jade Burma was among the many area youth attending a baseball clinic in Rosebud all day Friday. Beaver was not feeling well so he ended up going to a different kind of clinic. He is much better now. Sunday morning guests of Maxine Allard were her son, Stan, and grandson, Patrick, of Rapid City. The guys spent the day doing errands like fixing fence, etc. for Maxine. They also took back the motorcycles for the hill climb at the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally coming up soon. Saturday and Sunday the James Letelliers joined all the rest of their family at the Jensen reunion held in Custer State Park in the Black Hills. The main event was a banquet held in the White Buffalo Room at Blue Bell Lodge. Family members came from California to Texas and all points in between. The Danish cousins kept in touch with e-mail. It was almost like they were there because they could even see us! Marjorie’s sister, Karen, and Gary Price of Maurine and LuAnne and Paul Beckwith of Pierre were given surprise anniversary celebrations. The Price’s fortieth and Beckwith’s twenty-fifth. Sue Larson had also put together a power point on the Dexheimer branch of the Jensen family tree as part of the evening program. Throughout the weekend Olympic style competitions were held and we came home with our share of medals. The fun weekend was topped off with a Jensen baseball game behind the State Game Lodge. Erica Beckwith of Omaha is the only one of the James Letellier family not able to attend. My grandfather, JP Jensen, had often said, “My roots are in Denmark, but I blossomed in America” and he certainly did. The little league baseball teams in Parmelee and Norris are very grateful to Robbie Jacobson and the First Baptist Church in Sioux Falls for the big load of equipment she sent our way. It included everything from bases to bats and everything in between, enough for four teams. We truly appreciate Joe Kary, too, and for letting us know it was available and keeping it at the store. Joe sure has the right connections to benefit the kids. Folks will be surprised to see a new face behind the Norris Post Office window from now on as our faithful Postmaster Carol Ferguson retired this week after twentyseven and a half years with the United States Postal Service. Carol served most of that time in her hometown of Norris. Carol Ferguson began working for the postal department under her uncle, Bob Totton, serving as his replacement in Norris. It was then she first began handing out candy to the little ones, who tagged along to get the mail, just like Bob Totton. She was also Officer in Charge, a temporary position in Kadoka, Martin, Rosebud and for almost a year in Mission. Carol was sworn in as Norris Postmaster January 18, 1985, and served until 1995 after the retirement of her Uncle Bob. Carol was appointed Postmaster at Rosebud in 1995 and served there until 2001. When the Norris Post Office became available in 2001 Carol made the difficult decision of rather to serve in a lower level Post Office and be close to home; so she returned to Norris for the last eleven years of her postal service career. Carol Ferguson has many precious memories while serving the people in the different communi-
Watering suggestions for drought-stressed trees
South Dakota's dry spring and hot, dry summer conditions are leading to severe stress for many of the state's trees and shrubs, according to John Ball, SDSU Extension Forester and Forest Health Specialist for the South Dakota Department of Agriculture. "The most common symptom of moisture stress is leaves turning a lighter green than is typical for the species. Affected leaves are also showing brown and crisp margins, with browning often occurring between the leaf veins," Ball said. In current drought conditions, evergreen foliage on droughtstressed trees, particularly seedlings, is turning yellow to almost purple at the tips of the needles. Some of the older needles, which were formed three to five years ago, on drought-stressed trees are beginning to drop prematurely. "There is not much that can be done at this time other than water," Ball said. "This is particularly important for new plantings, whether they are seedlings in a new windbreak or a tree just planted in a yard." He says a seedling is going to need between a pint and a quart of water per day, while a newly planted tree will need about 2 to 3 gallons per day at this time. "Most young tree belts are probably not receiving anywhere close to this amount and I suspect there will be a lot of replanting next spring," he said. Ball says established trees will not need daily watering, but still require weekly watering to survive this dry, hot summer. A 2-inch diameter tree, as measured at 6inches above the ground, should be receiving about 20 gallons of water a week. "This is best-applied slowly with a soaker hose placed near the tree," he said. "Tree roots typically extend out as far as the tree is tall, but the critical watering zone is a distance out about two-thirds the height."
ties. The first post office in 1985 was located south of the pool hall building and had no water. Post office boxes had combination locks and windows so folks would walk in peak through the window before getting their mail. In the old Norris Post Office was an oil burner that had to be lit every day before getting rid of the winter chill. There a couple chairs that were setting around in the back room and local people would come in and chat and get the latest news. Oh, if those walls could talk! First carriers on the route were Danny and Sid Addison. Gail Berry was the postmaster relief in 1985. In July of 1986 a new modular trailer was moved across the street to served as the Norris Post Office, complete with water, lawn and trees. Carol has memories of spending stormy winter nights in the backroom at the Rosebud Post Office and sleeping on an army cot with a sleeping bag. Kind folks would often come by the back door with a hot plate of food. She purchased a Yugo (a very small car made in Yugoslavia that had gone out of production) which got 46 mpg. Carol says, “It made good mileage, but often left me walking because it had a very small gas tank and the gauge was broken.” Carol Ferguson will go down in history as one of many postmasters we have had over the century, beginning with P.H. Putnam in 1909. Our heartfelt appreciation to Carol for her loyal service to this little community she calls home. At the retirement of the postmaster, we only hope it doesn’t mean the loss of the post office, too. Susan Taft will be serving as Officer in Charge at the Norris Post Office. Have a great week!

Frank Carlson didn’t win a ranch rodeo this week like he and his crew did last week. He did, however, come in third in breakaway roping at the Wanblee rodeo which was combined with a fair, pow wow and horse race. He was also in the horse race but said his horse was too slow compared to the opposition. Frank went to the event with Toni, son Sage, and his uncle, James Carlson. Frank said Sage was given his Lakota name and seemed to be having a really good time. Betty Kusick was visited by Joe Livermont on Saturday. They played quite a bit of cribbage. Earlier in the week, Betty went to Rapid City with Loretta and Lawrence Schreiber of Quinn. Betty kept a doctor appointment, and then they went out to view the house their daughter/sister, Kathy, and her husband had just purchased in Hermosa. Hermosa is about fifteen miles south of Rapid. The house was quite nice. Back at home, Betty hasn’t been doing much fishing lately since it’s been too hot. She has been watering her pots of cucumbers and tomatoes every day and enjoying the cucumbers. The tomatoes, alas, are slow to ripen although she did pick a cucumber off the tomato vines this week since a vine had snuck in there and grown a cuc. Betty said that one day her yard was full of blackbirds. A flock had landed there and was eating some of the grasshoppers, which was fine. They wouldn’t be missed. John Addison participated in the rodeo at Deadwood on Friday. He rode in the bareback event as usual but didn’t have much luck this week. On Tuesday of this coming week, John and Samantha’s son, Koye, will have surgery in Sioux Falls to remove a lump on his back. It doesn’t appear to be a serious thing, but the doctors say it should come off. Koye was born on April 10 of last year so is a little over a year old. Bunny Green’s foot is healing enough now that she can step on it some without a lot of pain. You might remember that she stepped on a toothpick last week and drove it quite a ways into her foot. Cheryll Wells has been nursing her some and helping with soaking the foot, etc. On Saturday, Bunny was disappointed to learn that Jeanette Scarborough and her daughter, Jackie, and a friend had stopped to visit. Unfortunately, Bunny was in the shower, the dog was barking, the fans were running, and she did not hear the knock. Jeanette and company are from Rapid City and had been to visit Charles Willert in Kadoka. On Sunday, Larry Grimme came by for a short visit. Chuck and Merry Willard drove to Timber Lake on Saturday to take in the 40th reunion of their high-school class. There were forty in their class, four have died, and eighteen were at the reunion which was about half of the surviving members. The affair was held in a tent on Main Street, and they basically had quite a good time. Merry was a little disappointed that one classmate she went to country grade school with wasn’t able to come. Saturday evening, they stayed overnight with Merry’s folks in Mobridge. On the way home on Sunday, they visited two of Merry’s brothers over by Trail City. Back at home, daughter Niki Kleinsasser came on Friday evening and watched over things while her folks were gone. She mowed and watered, fed the bucket calf, tended the chickens and did whatever else needed doing. Chuck and Merry have been and will be getting ready for Rodeo Bible Camp which will be held in Kadoka next week. Nancy Schofield continues to spend quite a bit of her time working at 1880 Town. This week she worked on scraping old paint off a house there and repainting. In August, it looks like Joy Dolezal and she will be back to taking tickets since the helpers who are doing that now have to leave. At home, Kirby Schofield and John Dolezal are attempting to build a deerproof fence around the garden since the deer tend to wander through, bite off green tomatoes and then spit them out. Nancy says they have two large tomatoes in pots on

Online programs helping high school students succeed
The South Dakota Board of Education received updates Monday during its regularly scheduled meeting on two online programs that create rigor and relevance for high school students. The South Dakota Virtual School provides expanded course offering to students through online studies. It gives students the opportunity to take more Advanced Placement courses, study highly specialized subjects, or receive tailored remedial instruction. In 2011-2012, 133 public school districts and school systems participated in South Dakota Virtual School. That’s up from 88 just three years ago. More than 2,900 full- or part-time students in grades 6-12 use the system, for a total of 3,822 semester registrations. “Especially in many of the smaller districts in the state, schools may not be able to pay a full-time teacher in advanced or highly specialized subjects,” said curriculum specialist Erin Larsen. “The South Dakota Virtual School gives students those same opportunities, increasing the rigor and relevance of their high school education.” Currently, there are 364 semester course offerings through South Dakota Virtual School, with 24 AP courses and 82 credit recovery courses. In the future, the virtual school will expand to offer more courses at the middle-school level. Another program, South Dakota MyLife, is an online career development tool that encourages students to explore careers through interest inventories and skills assessments. Students can then research careers they are matched with and save that data to their online portfolios. With that knowledge, they can use their profiles to plan their academic programs and track their goals. “SDMyLife usage is really high right now,” said Tiffany Sanderson, career and technical education administrator in the Department of Education. “Overall usage has been steadily climbing since we introduced the site four years ago. It’s a good indication that students have access to the resources they need for success in high school and preparation for life after 12th grade.” Completion of the online interest inventories has allowed the state’s education analysts to compare student interest data with workforce needs so teachers and counselors can educate students regarding relevant opportunities in South Dakota. In a related study, it was discovered that students completing career and technical education programs graduated and continued to the postsecondary level at a higher rate than the average student population.

the parents of a new baby boy, Ridge, born in Rapid City on Thursday of last week. He joins a big brother and two big sisters. Ridge weighed 6 pounds, 13 ounces and was 20 inches long. He is the grandson of John and Carol Solon. John is recovering from bruises and aches after a fall with his horse. He was checked out at the ER last week and nothing is broken, but he is sore. He said the horse is fine, but he isn’t feeling any sympathy for it. Fans of Jeff Willert were disappointed to learn that he turned his horse out at the Deadwood Days of ‘76 and didn’t ride on Thursday. His grandfather said that he was hoping to be checked out by the doctors at the rodeo as he had an injured leg. Those of us who attended the rodeo were treated to a good time and saw lots of good action. Chad Ferley tied for first place with an 84 and won $3,225. Jeff did get a small check for his score of 78 in Spanish Fork, UT, on the 20th – tied for 7th overall, winning $321. He had no scores posted at Cheyenne but am not sure he even went. He is scheduled to ride August 1 in Great Falls, MT, and Dodge City, KS, on the 3rd. Louie Brunson won some money in Cheyenne – had an 86 and a tie for 4th, check was $475, then had 251 points for the average on three head, winning the tie for fourth and $2,138.

All returned to their homes the next day. Veryl Prokop recently drove to Billings, MT, where he joined a tour group for a bus trip to the Calgary Stampede in Canada. Veryl said that the days spent there were filled with stage shows, rodeos, dances, chuckwagon races and huge crowds that were kept very busy. Six residents of Philip were also on the tour, among the eleven South Dakotans going on the trip. They did have some trouble getting back across the border into the United States as someone’s medical device set off an alarm, but all arrived home on July 17, with wonderful memories of a great trip. Jim and Robyn Jones and her parents, Ray and Florence Osburn, of Valentine, NE, spent the weekend visiting Tyler, Michael, Kylie and Kelton at Oglala.

Dell’s visitation will be on Wednesday, August 1 at the Kline Funeral Chapel and funeral services will be at 10 a.m. August 2 in Belle Fourche. Sympathy is extended to his family. Suzanne Hoon and two daughters left last Monday for a trip to Gillette, WY, where they visited an uncle of the girls and Suzanne’s sister, Angie Bertalot. While there they did some jet skiing which was a lot of fun. They returned home on Wednesday. Rodger Prang, son of Kieth and Nona Prang, and his brother-inlaw, Jim Kuhn, both of Spokane, WA, came to Kadoka on Wednesday of last week and spent a few days visiting with the Prangs and at the Frying Pan Ranch south of Kadoka before leaving for their Washington homes.

Among the relatives attending the graveside rites for Odetta Miller in Ainsworth, NE, on Monday, July 23 were Larry and Jan Miller and their daughters and families, Sheila and Shelly; Wanda Swan, Lila and Bruce Whidby and a grandson and granddaughter of Philip; Lois Lurz of Hot Springs and her daughter, Barbara of Custer, and Lola and Ronnie Hulce of Philip. All enjoyed a lunch later at the church where Odetta attended. The relatives had some difficulty getting to Ainsworth due to the huge prairie fire that burned several thousand acres near there. Some of the Swan relatives living there had to leave their home for a short time. Athene (Uhlir) and Del Eberlein of Eau Claire, WI, stayed overnight in Kadoka on Saturday and visited with Hellen and Vernon Uhlir while here. They had attended Del’s 50th college reunion and gone to the Black Hills for a few days. They left for home on Sunday. Athene was a 1959 graduate of KHS. Lynda and Michael Vigus, John Vigus and son, Julian, spent Saturday night at the home of Sydne Lenox. Lynda, John and Julian were returning from a trip to Oregon and had an accident near Gillette, WY, on the way home. Michael drove to pick them up and they continued to their Freeman home Sunday morning. Luckily no one was injured, but the car was not driveable. Lynda is the daughter of Butch Parkinson of Irene. Pat and Boyd Porch returned home on July 24 after a trip to Alaska. They left on July 8 and went to Vancouver, BC, where they boarded a cruise ship that took them to Whittier, Alaska.

We survived the state survey for another year! State inspectors were here a couple of weeks ago and it is always an added incentive to dot all i's and cross all t's. We did very well! In celebration, the staff was treated to a special luncheon this week as we reviewed the fine points made by the surveyors. Paulette and Rick Wilmarth frequently spent time with Alice Wilmarth. Lova Bushnell stopped in on Saturday to visit many of the residents and to join in the afternoon activity. Mary Bull Bear enjoyed seeing her granddaughters, Nevaeh Pierce and Carsyn Pierce, over the weekend. Granddaughter Raya Garrett came by on Sunday. Mary's daughter, Sonia, and granddaughter, E. Marie, spent time with her on Tuesday. Wilma Daniel had a good chat with her son, Gene, and daughterin-law, Doris, on Sunday.

Four director terms to expire at Golden West’s annual meeting
This year’s 60th Annual Membership Meeting of Golden West Telecommunications Cooperative scheduled for Saturday, September 22 in Wall, SD will find the terms of four directors expiring on the Cooperative’s 15-member board of directors. Terms expiring this year include Rod Renner of Wall, Lee Briggs of Midland, Harold Wyatt of Hot Springs and Jeff Nielson of Canistota.

It was no shock to learn … that a old time cowboy from South Dakota was at the Calgary Stampede Rodeo. It may have been breakfast time at the rodeo, but when a band started playing country music, Veryl Prokop thought it was time to dance. Shown here is Veryl dancing with Ruth Ann Rayner, who is the public relation coordinator for the Calgary Stampede. --courtsey photo

4-H Iron Chef – fruit challenge
Fruit was the chosen ingredient that 4-H members had to use in the third annual Iron Chef contest, July 12, in Philip. Contestants were given 90 minutes in which to prepare and serve their recipe to a panel of judges. They are judged on cooking skills, food safety and handling skills, kitchen clean up, and the nutritional knowledge for their dish. The youth must know how many servings their recipe makes, the amount of calories per serving, how the different ingredients fit into the food pyramid, as well as information on the fats and sugars in each serving. Power Orange Smoothie by Josie Rush 2 cups fat free or low fat milk, 1 6oz. can frozen orange juice concentrate, 1/2 cup powdered sugar, 1 teaspoon vanilla, 4-6 extra large ice cubes In a blender combine the milk, frozen orange juice concentrate, powdered sugar and the vanilla. Cover and blend until smooth. With the blender still running, remove the center lid and add ice cubes one at a time; blending until smooth and frothy. Pour into tall glasses and serve immediately. This shake can also be poured into freezer pop containers for a dreamsicle snack. Serves four. Cherry Cream Crepes by Sarah Parsons Filling: 6 ounces of Neufchatel or cream cheese, 2 tablespoons sugar, 1/4 cup sour cream, 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon. Crepes: 1/2 cup Bisquick mix, 1 egg, 1/2 cup of milk, 1/4 vanilla extract, softened butter. Topping: 1 can cherry pie filling. In a small mixing bowl, beat the cream cheese, sour cream, sugar and cinnamon until smooth; set aside. For the crepes, whisk the Bisquick mix, egg, milk and vanilla together in a small bowl. Grease an eight inch nonstick skillet with a small amount of softened butter. Pour two tablespoons of the batter into the center of the skillet. Lift and tilt pan to coat bottom evenly. Cook until top appears dry. Turn and cook for 15-20 seconds longer. Remove to wire rack. Repeat with remaining batter, adding butter to skillet as needed. Spoon two rounded tablespoonfuls of filling down the center of the crepe. Roll up. Heat the cherry pie filling over low heat in a small saucepan until warm. Pour on top of crepes. Five Minute Strawberry Ice Cream by Savannah Solon 1 10-oz. package of frozen sliced strawberries (or approximately 2 cups), 1/2 cup sugar, 2/3 cup heavy whipping cream. Combine frozen strawberries and sugar in blender. Process until fruit is roughly chopped. With the blender running slowly, pour the heavy cream in until fully incorporated. Serve immediately or freeze for up to one week. Serves four. Fast Fruit Tarts by Shaina Solon 6 tablespoons apricot preserves, 3 1/2 oz. prepared vanilla pudding, miniature graham cracker pie crusts, 1/3 cup sliced strawberries,

Haakon/Jackson County Fair honorees share 4-H history
success of many young people throughout his years of service to the program. We both enjoyed our years in 4H. We still have our 4-H books, which have become a favorite scrapbook. So for all the kids that think it’s a waste of time, take it from us, someday you’ll enjoy looking back on them. The dreaded and almost unbearable illustrated talks or demonstrations were something both of us didn’t like. It never was that we couldn’t think of something to talk about or demonstrate. It was the fact that we had to stand up in front of a crowd and make sense. But like all other life experiences, it came in handy when delivering our first speech in high school. So the moral to the story is, there is a reason behind the madness. It just takes awhile before you understand it. Avery and I wanted to give his younger sisters and other children in the community the opportunities that had been given to us through 4-H. To do this, we began holding the county 4-H Horse Show at our place near Kyle in the summer of 1984. Gary Nies was the Extension Agent for Shannon and Bennett County and was very helpful in getting the horse show going. Jeff Temple volunteered his time to judge the first horse show held at our place. That was the first year we began sponsoring the Bud May Memorial Buckle in memory of Avery’s dad who passed away in March of 1984. Bud and his wife, Ada, were very active in 4-H and were leaders for the 4-H club in Kyle which eventually accumulated over 100 members. Avery’s sister, Timaire, won the first annual Bud May memorial award in the junior girl’s division. As more kids from Jackson County became involved, we all decided to raise money to begin having the horse show in Kadoka where it is currently held. In the nineties, with the help of John Kangas and Vera Boje, we started the Redwater 4-H Club. We held various fundraisers and did community service projects such as singing carols at Christmas time in the nursing home, and picking up trash in road ditches. To reward the kids for their hard work, the club would hold an ice skating/sledding party or we would take all of the kids to Evans Plunge every year. Our years involved in 4-H included some of our fondest memories. There were many people who helped along the way that became lifelong friends. 4-H is an outstanding organization that offers kids the opportunity to learn the life lessons needed to succeed as adults. Much hard work has been required by not only the kids, but also their parents and the community for this organization to be as successful as it has been. We have sponsored the Bud May Memorial award for 28 years to reward kids for hard work, dedication, success and we plan to continue to give our support to the future generations in 4-H for many years to come. nities of being involved in 4-H. Members of our club have participated in every level of 4-H, from giving speeches at their club and county level, to participating in leadership conferences in Washington, D.C. My children were involved in many different 4-H project areas and participated in the 4-H Rodeo program as well. Serving on the Haakon/Jackson 4-H Leaders Council was the way that I became aware of how to form policies and how to help implement changes for the betterment of 4-H. I served in various offices while I was a member of the 4-H Council. I also served as a member of the Haakon/Jackson County Extension Board for several years. I am currently employed by the Haakon County School District as a paraprofessional in the elementary school. My family and I are members of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Milesville where I currently serve as a secretary of the Altar Society. Thank you for choosing me as the 2012 Haakon County Fair Honoree. Please go out and encourage children to become involved in the 4-H program.The discovery process for children enrolled in the 4-H Program is unlimited!
Jackson County Honorees Avery and Liz May In one form or another Avery and I have been actively involved in the 4-H Horse Project for the past 40 plus years. We both started our love for horses with our involvement with the 4-H program. It was natural for both of us, coming from a ranch background. Throughout the years, we have held horse shows at our place, helped start the Redwater 4-H Club, judged horse shows and queen contests and helped kids from the community practice for various 4-H projects and shows. As young children growing up, we had the opportunity to be surrounded by many people that shaped our successes. Without our parents, John and Helen Marty and Bud and Ada May, we would never have had the opportunity to be involved in such a great program as 4-H. Also, I never go to a horse show that I don’t think about Lyndell Peterson, who was the first judge I ever had to face. He was, and still is, a major factor in the
Haakon County Honoree Mary Nelson My name is Mary Nelson. I am married to Jerry Nelson and we live on a ranch 30 miles northeast of Philip. We have three children, Katie, Loni and Travis. All three of our children are graduates of Philip High School. My first involvement in 4-H came about when our oldest child, Katie, enrolled in the Milesville Rangers 4-H Club. I have served as a leader in the Milesville Club for 14 years. During that time I have tried to help the 4-H members discover the benefits and opportu-
Kennedy Implement earns Dealership of the Year

Kennedy Implement, Philip, has been chosen as the 2012 Dealership of the Year by Farm Equipment magazine. Farm Equipment presents its Dealership of the Year awards annually to farm machinery dealers in two categories. One is for those with annual sales revenues of under $50 million and the other for dealers with more than $50 million in annual sales revenues. Kennedy Implement earned the distinction in the under $50 million in annual sales revenue category this year, not only for its outstanding financial and operating performance that has seen significant growth over the past three years, but also for its demonstrated commitment to employee training and community involvement, as well as its renowned customer service. Kennedy Implement is a New Holland and McCormick dealer. It also carries Woods, Westfield, Wheatheart, Brandt, Walinga, SnoBlast/TeamCo, Grass-hopper, and Vermeer, along with other lines available through distribution. The dealership was chosen for the award by a panel of renowned farm equipment experts. In their selection of Kennedy Implement as Farm Equipment’s Dealership of the Year for 2012, the judges noted, “The staff consists of 11 employees who really produce. The dealership had the highest ‘dollars generated per employee’ at $1,247,532. This is a very strong number when you consider the smaller staff size. Their return on assets was the highest of all nominees at 22 percent. They had the highest market share and their absorption rate was also the highest of all nominees in the small dealership category. The staff believes in a team concept ... ‘If one fails, we all fail.’ This concept helped them receive the number one market share in South Dakota for ag tractors and hay tools. The judges unanimously agreed that Kennedy Implement was deserving of the 2012 first place award in the small dealership category.” The judging panel included Dr. W. David Downey, director, Center for Agricultural Business, Purdue University, West Lafayette, Ind.; David L. Kahler, retired chief executive officer of the Ohio-Michigan Equipment Dealers Association, Dublin, Ohio; and Charles Glass, president, Glass Management Group, Arlington, Texas. Originally founded in 1943, Kennedy Implement has seen significant changes in all aspects of the dealership over the last five years. Mark Buchholz took over management of the dealership in 2008, and then purchased it from the previous owner, Denny Kennedy, in 2010. This change has brought on a new direction in the day-to-day operations. Since Buchholz purchased the dealership, they have added Grasshopper, Woods, Brandt and Vermeer to the already competitive lines in house. “Niche marketing has helped us find locations for used equipment to find homes elsewhere. This can be seen directly in our Internet sales,” Buchholz said. “In 2011, we were able to sell in 22 different states or provinces and had approximately 45 sight-unseen sales with no negative comebacks. This has allowed us to move equipment to satisfied customers in new areas. We are continually looking to improve our image in the community and nation.” Kent Buchholz added, “We’re doing enough now online, there is no real slow time.” In 2011 Kennedy Implement received the Top Market Share in South Dakota – Ag Tractors, and Top Market Share in South Dakota – Haytools. “While these awards are presented to the dealerships, they are a true testament to our customers. They trust us enough to sell them a quality product because of our quality service,” M. Buchholz said. Kennedy Implement’s selection as 2012 Dealership of the Year is featured in the July/August issue of Farm Equipment, viewable at www.farm-equipment.com. Farm Equipment magazine, based in Brookfield, Wis., serves more than 12,000 farm equipment dealers, wholesalers and distributors throughout North America. It’s also the publisher of Rural Lifestyle Dealer magazine, Farm Catalog, Ag Equipment Intelligence, No-Till Farmer and the Conservation Tillage Product Guide.

SPECIAL MEETING BOARD OF JACKSON COUNTY COMMISSIONERS July 18, 2012
The Board of Jackson County Commissioners met in special session at 7:00 p.m., Wednesday, July 18, 2012 in the Courtroom of the Jackson County Courthouse. Chairman Jim Stilwell called the meeting to order with members Glen Bennett, Delores Bonenberger, and Larry Denke present. Ron Twiss was absent. All motions carried unanimously unless otherwise noted. A public meeting was held in the courtroom on the Cain Creek Land Exchange. Teresa Harris and Alan Anderson, Forest Service, Wall Ranger District, were present. Area landowners present were Wayne and Marcia Huether, Clifford Poss, Mark DeVries and Tom Grimes. Harris and Anderson presented information and maps showing lands currently owned by The Nature Conservancy that are proposed to be traded for selected parcels of Forest Service lands. Forest Service parcels are located in Fall River, Pennington and Jackson counties. The Nature Conservancy is offering up to 3,089 acres of land they own in the Conata Basin in exchange for Forest Service lands. The Forest Service has proposed to convey up to 4,249 acres to The Nature Conservancy. Harris provided information on criteria for selection of Forest Service lands for this exchange. She explained that the Forest Service will only in rare circumstances sell land to private individuals, that land exchanges have taken place in the past with adjacent landowners or permittees on isolated parcels within the landowners property, but in this case the Forest Service is exchanging lands with The Nature Conservancy, a non-profit organization. She explained that The Nature Conservancy will then offer for sale the lands they obtain in the exchange to the adjacent landowner or permittee. Wayne Heuther inquired as to why Forest Service lands located within his property has never been selected in a land exchange. Commissioner Bennett inquired as to what happens to the funds The Nature Conservancy receives from the land sales. Commissioner Denke inquired as to what happens if the landowner or permittee is not able, or willing, to purchase the land from The Nature Conservancy. Harris again explained the criteria for selection of lands for this land exchange, and could not give reason as to why Huether’s were not included in the exchange. She explained that The Nature Conservancy is a non-profit organization, and they normally use funds from sale of properties to purchase other properties. She also explained that each landowner or permittee affected by the land exchange have been contacted, will be given the option to purchase the land, and if they are not able or willing to purchase the parcel or parcels the parcels will be dropped from the land exchange and remain as Forest Service lands. Mark DeVries reported that he had checked with Kadoka Area School District on how this land exchange would affect their funding, and that he was told that it will not affect their impact aid funding, and would provide a small increase in property tax funds as the lands would now be taxable. The board continued their meeting in the Commissioner’s Room of the courthouse. Mitch Olney, Highway Superintendent, was present. Bennett inquired as to whether the board had authorized leasing of the gravel screener. It was reported that the board had authorized the Highway Department to lease the screener at the July 9th. meeting, and to lease the screener when the Highway Department can scheduled to do the gravel screening. Mitch Olney reported that the truck has been taken to Excel Truck Repair and they are working on the transmission. Mitch Olney informed the board that Mark Bucholz gave him a quote on Woods mowers of $18,500. He reported this is the brand of mower used by Haakon County. Mitch Olney reported that the door of the JCB loader is being repaired. Discussion was held on the insurance claim payment not being large enough to cover the cost of the repairs. Vicki Wilson, Auditor, informed the board she would appeal the claim. Mitch Olney reported graveling of the Brech Road is completed, and signs have been installed at the Guptill Bridge. He reported that the crew is now patching the Long Valley Road (CH 16). At 8:15 p.m., Bennett moved, Stilwell seconded, that the board go into executive session to discuss personnel matters. Vicki Wilson, Auditor was present. Vicki Wilson left executive session at 8:27 p.m. At 8:57 p.m., Denke moved, Bonenberger seconded, that the board come out of executive session. No action was taken. Letters that were drafted concerning the proposed purchase of the building from Hildebrand and Kujawa for the library project were reviewed. Bennett moved, Denke seconded, that the longer letter informing Hildebrand and Kujawa that Jackson County would not be purchasing the building from them be approved and signed. Discussion was held on the library building project. Brosz Engineering is to be contacted for a preliminary design for a building. A new copier has been obtained for the Highway Department.Request was made to for disposal of the old non-working copier. Bonenberger moved, Denke seconded, that the copier be declared surplus and hauled to the dump. A loss control survey was completed in June by Safety Benefits, Inc. Results of the loss control survey were given to the board. There being no further business to come before the board Denke moved, Bonenberger seconded, that the meeting be adjourned and that the board meet in regular session at 9:00 a.m., Monday, August 13, 2012.

Heat stress in livestock
As the temperature increases ranchers and feedlot operators start to worry about the well-being of their cattle. However, it is not just heat that plays a part in heat stress, says Heather Larson, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specailist. "Producers need to monitor all weather conditions such as temperature, humidity and wind, closely and start interventions early in the day, well before noon," Larson said. "If an extended amount of time elapses before cattle are cooled down it may be too hot and late." During times of hot days, followed by warm nights Larson says there is also a potential that cattle will not have enough time to cool down completely through the night before the sun starts to heat things up again. Heat stress is one of those conditions that occur almost every summer. Larson says its impact on livestock varies based on genetic makeup, health status, stage of production and previous exposure to heat. "Together, these factors can become deadly, when the combination of temperature, humidity, wind speed and cloud cover result in extreme environmental conditions," Larson said. Being able to detect when cattle are becoming heat stressed is an important factor. "Watch cattle early for signs such as panting or open-mouthed breathing. These are indications that heat stress is occurring and interventions should take place," Larson said. She adds that cattle producers should avoid working, transporting or moving cattle during hot weather. "If it's necessary to work or move cattle, do so in the early morning hours only. Cattle are still dissipating their body heat during the evening hours," Larson said. Producers can also change their feeding times from morning to late afternoon. Larson explains that this shifts the heat produced by fermentation to night time, when cattle are better able to dissipate the heat. "If you are feeding twice a day then feed 60-70% of the total ration in the late afternoon and the rest in the morning," she said. Water intake decreases when water in the tanks exceeds 80°F. As a result, Larson says producers need to ensure that water pipes are not exposed to sun. Pipes should be at least 2-feet underground. Adding a supplemental tank of water to pens of cattle is another step producers can take. Larson reminds producers to check the refill rate of the stock tanks. "Remember, in the summer when many animals are drinking many tanks will be trying to fill at one time in addition to other potential needs for water on the same water supply line," she said. "During the summer water intake may exceed 9 gallons per head per day. It is recommended that cattle have a water space requirement of 1.5" per head. For example, 100 head of cattle would need 150 inches of water tank perimeter." Under hot conditions fly control becomes even more important says Larson. "Cattle will group together to get away from biting flies. Under hot conditions this will aid in increasing heat stress. Provide fly control through the use of fly tags, sprays, or other control methods," Larson said. Providing shade will take a substantial amount of stress off cattle. However, Larson says this is typically not an option, but providing shade to vulnerable animals such as the sick pen may prevent deaths. If using sheds make sure there is adequate air flow. The weight and color of animals are additional considerations. "Dark-hided and heavier cattle should preferentially be given pens with more airflow. If pens near shelterbelts with poor airflow need to be used, stock them with lighterweight, lighter-colored calves if possible," Larson said. Sprinklers can help reduce heat stress, but if sprinklers are used, Larson says they should provide large water droplets instead of a mist. "Water should run off the cattle saturating the hair. Running the sprinklers for 5 to 10 minutes at a time, twice an hour, will allow evaporative cooling to take place and is preferred over continuous sprinkling," she said. Wetting down pen surfaces will provide a cooler surface for animals to stand and also will help alleviate heat stress. If you have no way to sprinkle cattle to cool them and the ground down, then another option that may help somewhat to cool the ground is applying a layer of ground straw. This will help by absorbing less solar radiation and providing a slightly cooler place to stand. The USDA's Agricultural Research Service offers a cattle heat stress forecast page at this link: http://www.ars.usda.gov/Main/docs .htm?docid=21306. They forecast out a week at a time to help prepare for conditions that may be potentially harmful. "With this tool and the management steps above, ranchers can prepare for extreme conditions and hopefully triumph over them," Larson said.
