School board hears updates from principals, accepts four resignations
~ by Robyn Jones ~ The Kadoka Area School Board held their regular monthly meeting on Wednesday, August 15. Members Mark Williams and DJ Addison were absent. The bills, financial report and minutes from the July 11 and August 2 meetings were approved as presented. Superintendent Jamie Hermann stated that the NAFIS and Impact Aid meeting will be held on September 23-25 in Washington, D.C. Board members who wish to attend need to contact the business office. Hermann informed the board that the DakotaStep test results for the district are available on the website of the SD Dept. of Education. A staff certification update was presented to the board. Hermann stated that the SD Dept. of Ed is behind in processing the certification paperwork. Those staff members who are not certified will be on a plan of intent to obtain their certification. The progress is monitored and submitted to the state. High School Principal George Seiler stated that one main issue that the staff felt needed to be addressed was students being tardy. Staff will now be in the hallways and once the bell rings, doors to the classroom will be shut. Any students who are not in class, will need to report to his office. Seiler present information on the ICU program. This program will assist students who have missing assignments or if they have a grade that is 70% or below. The student will have the option to redo it, make corrections, or complete another assignment that is similar to the initial assignment. The purpose of implementing the ICU program is to ensure that students are learning the material being taught. The high school class schedule was presented. Every Wednesday, each class period will be reduced by five minutes and the additional hour at the end of the day will be used for the Kadoka Cares. At this time students and staff will meet in small groups and the staff will track the students in their school progress. Elementary Principal Jeff Nemecek explained the Power Walk Through system. Each day he will walk through classrooms, at different times, to view different teaching techniques, spending approximately five minutes in each class. This method is used to increase classroom achievements and the effective point is instant feedback to the teacher. Nemecek also informed the board for the need of an instructional aide in the preschool classroom. The previous aide has taken a different position within the district. The estimated enrollment for the preschool is at 25 students. The students will be divided into morning and afternoon classes. Hermann gave an update on summer maintenance projects. Work on the Great Hall is estimated to be completed by August 24. Cleaning on the inside is being done and classrooms will soon be set up. The west side of the elementary wing is being repaired.

able to take care of them. When trouble looms, prayer is always a good first step to take. But having a foundation upon which to build our prayers also makes a difference. Jehoshaphat, the King of Judah, faced an enormous challenge. Three different tribes--the Moabites, Amonites, and Meunites--simultaneously waged war against him. Most leaders would have crumbled under such pressure, or at the very least taken drastic measures, but Jehoshaphat was a wise king. Though afraid, he did not strike out against his enemies.Instead, knowing that God was interested in his dilemma, he "turned his attention to seek the Lord" and proclaimed a fast throughout the land (2 Chron. 20:1-3). Jehoshaphat also knew that God, who was greater than any earthly problem, had done miraculous things for Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, Moses, David, and Daniel. That same God would help him, too, in his hour of need. We should never underestimate the Lord's interest in our affairs. He helped our ancestors in the Bible, and He can and will help His children today. It's easy to think our problems are unimportant in the eyes of God, but He doesn't feel that way at all. Whatever concerns us concerns Him. If we, like Jehoshaphat, turn right to God and proclaim His power, He will intervene. And no matter how great our challenges are, God is greater.
2 Chronicles 20:1-4 Everyone faces challenges in life. Whether our struggles are financial, vocational, relational, or physical, we can be certain that nobody is exempt. Fortunately, we serve a God who is both interested in our problems and

Willert, this will put him out of commission for a while. Jeff was traveling with Chad Ferley at the time and was expected home probably on Sunday late. Bunny Green was visited by her daughter, Darlene Wiedemer, of Murdo on Sunday. Darlene brought some supplies she’d picked up for Bunny in Pierre. She also brought along her new little brown poodle that she is quite fond of. Bunny also said she’s had a skunk lurking around the place lately, but it was dispatched by neighbor Wally Wells this week. Jo and Jory Rodgers took in the Frontier Days Rodeo and events in White River on Saturday. They went in company with Jo’s mom, Carolyn Manke, and Jo’s sister, Jamie, and her husband, Ray. Frontier Days has been faithfully attended by the Manke family for many years. Jory stayed overnight at the ranch, and he and Carolyn went back for a second day on Sunday. Jo, meanwhile, went to Kilgore, NE, for a retirement party of the postmaster at St. Francis. This gal was the one who interviewed Jo for a postal job, and then hired and trained her. She is sort of a grandmother figure for Jo. This week, Jo will be working at the Wall Post Office but will find time on Monday to reclaim Jory from the ranch.

June Ring • 462-6328
“Many have quarreled about religion that never practiced it.” Benjamin Franklin The church was full at St. Thomas Episcopal Church Wednesday evening as Cheyenne and Orlana Schmidt renewed their wedding vows on their 15th anniversary on August 15, 2012. A reception followed at the Norris Township Hall, with a meal served by Lori Schmidt’s sister, Monica, and brother, Jim, and their spouses of Presho. Brother Rob of Mission was also there. There was also a full house at the hall for the reception. The Mellette County Cattlewomen met at the home of Donna Adrian Thursday, the 16th. After the meeting Donna, Jeannine Woodward, Jan Rasmussen, Jean Kary and June Ring all worked together to ready the trailer/float for the parade on Saturday. When it was complete as much as possible, Jeannine picked up Rose West from the museum (where another crew was getting things ready for the Frontier Days weekend) and they traveled to Pierre for business there. Saturday, August 11, Jeanne Merchen was in Custer for a bridal shower for her granddaughter, Courtney. The theme for the shower was ‘Kentucky Derby,’ and the ladies were all requested to wear fancy hats. The games and activities also followed that theme. Sunday a good friend from Arizona days and her son stopped in to visit Harry and Jeanne at Darrel Batie’s home. The duo had been to a funeral in Castle Rock, Colorado. Monday Harry and Jeanne visited their daughter, Dawn, and family, staying overnight with them. Tuesday Harry kept an appointment at the VA and they returned home that evening. Friday Harry and Jeanne visited Maxine briefly, and then returned home. Later they welcomed Ray and Gail Berry for a visit and lunch at their home. Jan Rasmussen was in White River on Thursday, and returned again Friday for the community potluck, where the Methodist Church band played music for those attending the picnic in the park. Saturday she was back in again for the parade and that afternoon the class of 1946 met in the museum for a reunion. Those attending were Jan, Bill Valburg, Darline (Valburg) Fouss and her daughter, Mary, Rosie Glynn, Art and Joyce Glynn, and Alice nee Bouman. Barry and Katie Jensen stopped in to visit with them for a while, also. Bobbie Kelley and other Norris teachers, past and present, were among those attending the renewal of vows for Cheyenne and Orlana Schmidt on Wednesday. Some of them had been at the teacher and staff in-service meetings the 15th and 16th in White River. School is slated to start for the students August 21. There will be open house at the White River School District schools Wednesday, August 29, from 4 to 6 p.m. Sunday, August 12, Bradley Huber went home from church with Bruce and Jessie Ring, as his parents, David and Nicole, were going boating in Pierre. Braeden was spending some time with his grandparents in Kadoka at the time. Bruce Ring and Ryan went to Rapid City last Wednesday for parts, repairs and supplies. Thursday Bruce, Jessie and Reno drove to Sioux Falls to keep an appointment there. Janice Ring was in White River for the parade Saturday, and accompanied her aunt, Eunice Krogman, to the rodeo that afternoon. While there they met Marie Banek’s three daughters, Dianne, Bernice and Carol, and visited with them for a bit. Torey, Linda, Jeremy and Tyler Ring were in Winner Friday for Grossenburg’s 75th anniversary spectacular. Four generations have been running the operation – Charlie, his son, Gene, Gene’s son, Barry, and Barry’s son, Charlie. The Wells Fargo Stagecoach and horses were there, and Jeremy and Tyler enjoyed climbing in and out of the stagecoach and also the inflated jumping houses, the monster truck, antique tractors and the various vendors. Getting to ride in a gator and letting it go by itself with GPS was also a thrill. The family checked out the 1930 Model A car at Harry K’s, although Tyler was more interested in the flashy Mustangs inside. Robert and Sharon Ring attended Cheyenne and Orlana’s renewal of vows at St. Thomas Church and also the reception at the hall. Friday they were among the crowd at Grossenburg’s 75th celebration in Winner. Last Tuesday Dan Taft took Morgan into White River for sports physical and also to fill out papers at school. Wednesday Dan, Susan and Morgan were present at the vows renewal and reception afterward in Norris. Morgan spent a few days with her Simmons grandparents in Martin last week. Saturday Dan and Susan joined niece Gloria and her husband, Rick, to go rafting down the Niobrara. Anne Heinert has spent much of the last two weeks getting her classroom ready in White River. Saturday several elementary teachers and Anne had a pickup in the parade and walked beside it handing out treats. After the in-service on Thursday, Anne and Gary headed for Sioux Falls, as son Alex was announcing the Sioux Falls Pheasants’ game that evening. Friday was Gary’s birthday, and the whole family had breakfast together; Erin came from work at her TV station in time to join them for breakfast. After breakfast Paul and Alex went to work, and Gary and Anne had time to do a bit of shopping before heading home. Jan Ring was an attendee at the vows renewal and reception Wednesday after attending staff inservice sessions in White River. Saturday she joined Tasha Peters and children and they went to Summerset for the wedding of Jan’s niece Laurie’s son, Kyle, wedding. Cliff and Elaine Krogman’s children and families were all here for Frontier Days, except for Dee Dee and family. Greg came Thursday, Adam and Jody came Friday, and Jenny and family made it in time to catch some of the parade on Saturday. Maxine Allard had a series of birthday calls last Monday. Grandsons Jason and Ryan both have birthdays on the 13th, and they know that Maxine usually calls them, but that she has difficulty dialing all those numbers now, so they saved her the trouble and called her instead. Their mother, Wanda, also called Maxine that day. Friday Maxine harvested some
Books of Knowledge
If you were hoping to buy a set of encyclopedias in the near future, you’re flat out of luck. They don’t make them anymore. “Why ever not?” you might inquire. Well, they’ve been replaced by the information highway, commonly known as the Internet. You can now go online and get just about all the information you want on almost any subject. Sometimes, in fact, you get way more than you want. Frankly, I never was too fond of encyclopedias. They were often too scholarly for my tastes. The Americana set wasn’t too bad generally speaking, but the Britannica was a bit beyond me. There were others, too, such as Compton and The Book of Knowledge. I could handle those fairly well although The Book of Knowledge was poorly organized. The best you can buy right now is about 2010 editions which aren’t yet completely sold out. They will cost you in the region of a thousand bucks, but do you want to pay that much for something that’s already out of date? If you don’t mind being behind the times, we have several sets of reference books sitting around the house that I can give you a real deal on. Sure, one of those is over fifty years old, but it’s bound to have useful info on some things. If you’re short of reading material, it would take a while to get through the complete set. Newspapers are running into similar problems thanks to the Internet. A lot of folks don’t want to wait a day for the news when it is so readily and instantaneously available on their computer monitors. My Dad would have been appalled. He cherished his daily paper and read it very thoroughly including the bridge and sports columns and Ann Landers. He would especially have missed the crossword puzzles, and, admittedly, it is hard to do crosswords on a computer. To do them, you’d probably have to print them out. I, on the other hand, never liked daily papers. They are published on big unmanageable pages and take more patience than I have. I can handle the shorter local weekly papers just fine, but the dailies are just too much. Wife Corinne used to like them pretty well except she sometimes got behind on reading them, and the newsprint turned her fingers black and irritated her skin. As a result, both Corinne and I now read the news from the local daily paper via computer. One advantage is that the cost is roughly a third of the printed version, and, if you don’t want an exact copy of the printed paper, it might be free. Sure, you have less paper around to use for starting the fireplace or wrapping fish, but neither do you have to burn the old copies or cart them off to the dump. All print media has been affected, it seems. Bookstores are closing right and left. That would be because more and more people are reading their books on electronic contraptions of some kind or other—even cell phones. I personally have a Kindle which is an electronic device strictly for reading books, magazines etc. Not only can I read books on the Kindle, but I can transfer them to any regular computer as well which I frequently do. If this option had been available thirty years ago, maybe I wouldn’t have a house stuffed full of books, most of which I will probably never read again. Here, too, the cost is cheaper when there is no paper and ink involved, but the prices have gone up quite a bit since I first started ordering them on line. You can still get many of the classics for next to nothing, but the newer ones are more expensive than they were although still considerably cheaper than their printed counterparts. One place, incidentally, where it is harder to use stuff from computer disks than in print would be with instruction manuals. It is much easier to flip back and forth through an actual in-hand manual than on a screen. One program I have for typing up music scores only came with a computer manual which was tedious to use in the extreme. I ended up printing a good bit of that and putting it in a binder for ease of use. That worked out okay, but it was a fat manual and took quite a bit of printing. One print media that doesn’t seem affected in all this would be those awful gossip magazines you see next to checkout counters. These tell all the traumas and divorces of the “beautiful” people. If those mags fell on hard times and disappeared, it wouldn’t bother me very much. I could live okay without them. All of this, of course, is bad news for those of you who despise computers or don’t own one. Things haven’t become completely desperate for you yet, but they are apt to get worse. Fortunately, I like computers, but, as they say, “The times are a-changing.” Hope I can keep up.
Artist application deadline nears
Across South Dakota each year, thousands of students – children and adults – get the opportunity to work with professional artists who travel to their communities to teach classes for a week. Right now, artists have the chance to become a part of this adventure. The Sept. 1 deadline for artists to apply to the South Dakota Arts Council’s Artists in Schools and Communities (AISC) roster is approaching quickly. The Artists in Schools and Communities program provides intensive, hands-on training in all arts disciplines to students of all ages across the state by providing funds to schools and nonprofit organizations that bring in groups and individuals for weeklong artist residencies. The artists are responsible for developing their residency lesson plans. Residencies are coordinated through the South Dakota Arts Council office as part of its Arts in Education program. Applicants should give themselves plenty of time to prepare the materials. The application process is somewhat involved, requiring completion of an applicant profile, an artist’s statement, artist’s resume/biography, a residency outline and a list of references. Artist documentation or work samples are also required. Artists interested in applying for the Artists in Schools and Communities program must apply through the SDAC’s online e-grant process. Hard copies of the applications will not be accepted.
onions and potatoes from her garden, as well as beans, and is fighting with the raccoons, trying to save her cantaloupe. Sunday Maxine and Pam rode with Evan and Dorothy Bligh to church in Norris. Evan and Dorothy returned home, only to take off soon and head for Wessington Springs, where they visited Evan’s mother, Marjorie. Dale and Ruth Paulson were also there, and they had a nice visit with them, too, before returning home Sunday night. Nette Heinert shared some of her garden produce with June Ring last Monday, as they picked together. Saturday Nette and her son, Beau, traveled to Chadron State Park for the Romey family reunion, Jean Kary was in Rapid City to keep a doctor appointment Tuesday. Thursday she rode along with June to the Cattlewomen meeting in White River. Saturday she worked with her granddaughter, Rebekkah, to hold a surprise 20th wedding anniversary celebration for Ace and Edna as they had supper, cake and ice cream at her home with flowers, balloons and all. Blake Lehman was busy working with the parade people Saturday morning, and Amy joined the band on the flatbed that led the parade. JoAnn Letellier had been busy putting up garden produce. Dave and family came back from Hulett for the weekend to help harvest the garden, too. Sue Larson and Julie Letellier joined Jim and Marjorie Letellier last Monday, and they celebrated Sue’s birthday one day early. Wednesday Jim and Marjorie were among the friends and relatives helping Cheyenne and Orlana celebrate their 15th wedding anniversary. Sunday Jim and Marjorie drove to Interior and attended services at the Community Bible Church there, where Mike and Judy Manna conducted Sunday School and church services. The couple served in the Ukraine for ten years, teaching young pastors, and now there are enough that they can take over the work there. The Manna’s have two girls who go to school at Sunshine Academy in Miller. Mike Manna is now the vice president of the Mission Board that they served under in the Ukraine. Saturday June Ring drove the Mellette County Cattlewomen’s float (101 Years of Cowboy Laundry) in the Frontier Days parade, with Will Kesler running the scrubbing washboard and handing out sacks. Saturday evening June had a smorgasbord meal with Maxine Allard.

Marie Addison spent last weekend at Dagmar, Montana, celebrating her 90th birthday a little early. Sept. 10 is her actual birthday. Dagmar is a Swedish settlement where Marie grew up which may be why Marie cooks up Danish pastries at the drop of a hat. The gathering was held on the family place which is now run by one of Marie’s grand nephews. Both of Marie’s brothers are now gone and most of her contemporaries so she felt a little deserted, but she still enjoyed visiting with all eight of her nieces and nephews and their spouses and offspring. Some even came all the way from California. She stayed on the home place while she was there. Six of her daughters were also there, namely Beryl, Nancy, Shirley, Dixie, Teresa and Rena. Shirley lives locally here, but Beryl, Nancy and Teresa are from Wyoming while Dixie and Rena live in Rapid City. One of the main events of the weekend was a committal service for a sister-in-law who had lived on the home place for many years. Marie said it was a good weekend and she had a wonderful time. Jim and Fayola Manfield recently drove to Wyoming to help their grandson, Thomas Davis, celebrate his 14th birthday. He is the son of Alison and Mike. About that time, Aaron, Michelle and Tyrel Mansfield were just returning from Alison’s, so they met Jim and Fayola at Hill City and all took a ride on the 1880 Train. Tyrel particularly enjoyed the train ride since he has had a fascination with trains for a long time. Jim and Fayola also recently attended a family reunion at Niobrara, NE. This was just a one-day trip and involved the Blankenfeld clan which was Jim’s mother’s family. Betty Kusick got in some good fishing on Saturday when Jim and Jami Addison picked her up and took her to several good fishin’ holes. Eleven were caught, and Jim and Jami donated theirs to Betty who cleaned them and stuck them in the freezer to join others she had put there from other recent fishing excursions. Betty said they had fun. It was a bit tiring, though, and when daughter Loretta asked if Betty wanted to go fishing again on Sunday, Betty replied, “Don’t even think about it.” This week may not be as enjoyable since Betty will have a bit of surgery to remove some skin cancer on the back of her hand. This will be done in Rapid City. She will be taken by Loretta of Quinn who set things up and will see them through. Betty said she isn’t having much luck with her tomato crop this year. The plants are in pots on the deck and are very slow to ripen and not that tasty. Brett and Nikki Bonenberger and kids spent the weekend camping near Mt. Rushmore with Brett’s family, namely his folks, Keith and Pam, his brother, Kade, and his sister, Alisha, and her daughter, Joshlin. Kade has been working near Hot Springs so didn’t have far to go, but Alisha is now from Mitchell. Keith and Brett both brought their campers, and Alisha her tent. Kade stayed in one of the trailers. Brett said the camp they stayed in is particularly family oriented with many facilities and activities for the kids. The kids, as a result, had quite a good time as did everyone else. Eve and Abby Fortune traveled to Colorado last week to visit Eve’s folks at Grand Junction and also pick up a good supply of Colorado peaches. Chuck thought they’d left on Wednesday or at least on a day that was 2 ½ boxes of donuts and four pizzas ago. Jeff Willert had the misfortune of breaking his collar bone in a rodeo in Montana this weekend. According to his granddad, Oliver
Brand board to increase brand inspection fee
The South Dakota Brand Board announces an increase in the brand inspection fee to 90 cents per head, effective Sept. 1, 2012. The brand inspection fee has been 80 cents since 2007. Higher costs of the inspection program necessitated the larger fee that is charged for required ownership inspections of cattle, horses and mules before their sale, slaughter or removal from the Livestock Ownership Inspection Area west of the Missouri River. State Brand Board Director Larry Stearns also reminds ranchers that, as of July 1, leaving the ownership inspection area without inspection is a Class 1 misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of $2,000 and one year in jail. Because the drought has prompted earlier fall cattle sales, Stearns says producers needing local inspections should contact their brand inspector as early as possible before shipping day to avoid delays. For more information on the inspection fee or to contact an inspector, call the South Dakota State Brand Board at 877-574-0054 or visit www.sdbrandboard.com

Dept of Ag accepting applications for donated 2011 CRP mid-term management hay
South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture Walt Bones announced today the South Dakota Department of Agriculture (SDDA) is spearheading the distribution of approximately 400 donated 2011 CRP mid-term management hay bales. Applications are being accepted by SDDA until 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 7, 2012. In order to respond to livestock feed needs due to widespread drought conditions and wildfires, USDA-FSA is allowing producers with 2011 CRP mid-term management hay to donate the baled residue to SDDA, rather than destroy it. South Dakota livestock owners who own or lease grassland impacted by wildfire in 2012 are eligible for the donated hay. Submitting an application does not guarantee distribution of hay to your operation. “With this summer’s extreme drought conditions, hay is scarce,” said Bones. “The donation of this CRP hay will hopefully lighten the burden on a few of the livestock producers here in South Dakota.” Baled residue from participating producers will be available in limited quantities. SDDA will coordinate the donation effort between the CRP participant and the livestock producer. The recipient will be responsible for expenses and arrangements associated with transporting the donated hay. Extra precautions may need to be exercised as movability of the hay is limited. Producers receiving hay will be selected by SDDA based on the number of applications received, the amount of hay available and need. Applications for the program can be found at www.sdda.sd.gov, http://drought.sd.gov or contact SDDA. Applications must be received by 5 p.m. on Friday, Sept. 7, 2012. For questions on eligibility and conditions, contact Jamie Crew at 605-773-4073. Agriculture is South Dakota's No. 1 industry, generating nearly $21 billion in annual economic activity and employing more than 80,000 South Dakotans. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture's mission is to promote, protect, preserve and improve this industry for today and tomorrow.

Senator Tim Johnson welcomes Brett Amiotte to his Rapid City office
U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (DSD) has welcomed intern Brett Amiotte to his Rapid City office. A graduate of Kadoka Area High School, Brett is the son of DeAnn Bearheels and the late Barry Amiotte of Rapid City, and the grandson of Leland and Iris Bearheels of Kadoka and Gordon Amiotte of Martin/Wanblee. Brett studies Finance and Economics at Northwestern College in Orange City, IA. “Internships are a great way for students to gain insight into how government works,” said Johnson. “I am glad that Brett could join us this summer.” "My experience in Senator Johnson’s Rapid City office has expanded my knowledge of the functions and channels of the federal government,” said Amiotte. Internships in Johnson’s state offices provide students with indepth knowledge of current issues affecting the state and the opportunity to work directly with South Dakotans. An intern in a state office will assist staff with special events, constituent casework, and administrative functions. College sophomores, juniors and seniors are encouraged to apply for Johnson's internship program. College credits and/or a stipend is available. To apply for a state office internship, call 1-800-537-0025.
State Report Card now available, test scores remain steady
The 2012 Report Card, which details student progress on South Dakota’s state assessment, is now available online. There was a slight uptick in reading and math scores on this year’s assessment, with 75.5 percent of students scoring either proficient or advanced in reading. That was up about one-tenth of a percentage point from last year. The percent of students scoring proficient or advanced in math went from 76.5 percent a year ago to 76.7 percent this year. The Dakota STEP and Dakota STEP-A were administered to about 62,000 students in grades 38 and 11 last spring. The Dakota STEP-A is an alternate version of the assessment for students who have a significant cognitive disability. South Dakota’s statewide graduation rate was 83.16 percent, down only slightly from 83.39 percent last year. The graduation rate was calculated using the federally mandated four-year cohort model. “This year marks a transition as we move forward with a new accountability system for South Dakota,” said state Secretary of Education Dr. Melody Schopp. “Beginning with the 2012-13 school year, we will be looking at school performance in broader, more holistic terms, using multiple indicators to assess a school’s performance.” The multiple indicators will still include student achievement on state assessments, but that measure will be balanced with other factors, according to Schopp. In the long-term, schools will be evaluated using indicators such as academic growth of students, teacher and principal effectiveness, school climate, and college and career readiness at the high school level. The 2012 Report Card, including district- and school-level results, is available on the Department of Education’s web site at www.doe.sd.gov . Follow the “Report Card” link under “Quick Links” on the left-hand side of the page.

Non-sister twins to celebrate 90th birthday
“We were bonded from that day on,” Mabel said. “After working the summer months at the hotel,” Mabel said, “we went to Rapid City in September to attend Black Hills Commercial College and take a two-year business course.” Mabel was a Lutheran and Marie was a Catholic. They roomed in college with families of the opposite faith, Mabel recalled. Mabel recalled that Marie didn’t stay very long because she excelled in the subjects so well. The New Underwood Bank was soliciting help and Marie accepted a position. Her career got off to a great start and she remained in banking for many years. She now resides in Murdo. Meanwhile, Mabel took a job at the Pentagon where she worked for a good many years. It was there that she met and married Larry Brunner, who was a police officer. Later they retired in Sun City, AZ, where Mabel has resided for more than 40 years. Marie became the wife of Russell Tedrow and they had two sons. Mabel and Larry never had children. Both of the ladies have lost their husbands. Mabel enjoys Bingo, after Sunday church, doing volunteer work.
Some 72 years ago … Marie (Olic) Tedrow (L) and Mabel (Omdahl) Brunner posed for this picture when they were 18 years old. Born on the same day, the same year, they call themselves the non-sister twins. --courtesy photos
Two young ladies graduated from high school in May of 1940 and later found out they had more in common than they could have ever imagined. As it turned out, that summer Mabel Omdahl and Marie Olic both worked at Dacotah Hotel in Kadoka, which was owned by Frank and Mae Hafner. Marie was a waitress; Mabel worked in the kitchen making and baking bread and pies. While waiting on a customer Marie made comment that it was her 18th birthday. Mabel over heard that from the kitchen and said it was her birthday, too. Come to find out they were both born on August 24, 1922. Mabel was born in Cottonwood and Marie in Imlay. They also shared the same initials.

Public Notices …
Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) Notification of Rights Elementary and Secondary Schools
The Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA) affords parents and students over 18 years of age ("eligible students") certain rights with respect to the student's education records. These rights are: The right to inspect and review the student's education records within 45 days of the day the School receives a request for access. Parents or eligible students should submit to the School principal a written request that identifies the record(s) they wish to inspect. The School official will make arrangements for access and notify the parent or eligible student of the time and place where the records may be inspected. The right to request the amendment of the student's education records that the parent or eligible student believes are inaccurate, misleading, or otherwise in violation of the student's privacy rights under FERPA. Parents or eligible students who wish to ask the School to amend a record should write the School principal, clearly identify the part of the record they want changed, and specify why it should be changed. If the School decides not to amend the record as requested by the parent or eligible student, the School will notify the parent or eligible student of the decision and advise them of their right to a hearing regarding the request for amendment. Additional information regarding the hearing procedures will be provided to the parent or eligible student when notified of the right to a hearing. The right to privacy of personally identifiable information in the student's education records, except to the extent that FERPA authorizes disclosure without consent. One exception, which permits disclosure without consent, is disclosure to school officials with legitimate educational interests. A school official is a person employed by the School as an administrator, supervisor, instructor, or support staff member (including health or medical staff and law enforcement unit personnel); a person serving on the School Board; a person or company with whom the School has outsourced services or functions it would otherwise use its own employees to perform (such as an attorney, auditor, medical consultant, or therapist); a parent or student serving on an official committee, such as a disciplinary or grievance committee; or a parent, student, or other volunteer assisting another school official in performing his or her tasks. A school official has a legitimate educational interest if the official needs to review an education record in order to fulfill his or her professional responsibility. Upon request, the School discloses education records without consent to officials of another school district in which a student seeks or intends to enroll, or is already enrolled if the disclosure is for purposes of the student's enrollment or transfer.

In addition, two federal laws require local educational agencies (LEAs) receiving assistance under the Elementary and Secondary Education Act of 1965 (ESEA) to provide military recruiters, upon request, with three directory information categories—names, addresses and telephone listings—unless parents have advised the LEA that they do not want their student's information disclosed without their prior written consent. If you do not want Kadoka Area School District to disclose directory information from your child's education records without your prior written consent, you must notify the District in writing by September 15, 2011. Kadoka Area School District has designated the following information as directory information: Student's name Address Telephone listing Electronic mail address Photograph Date and place of birth Major field of study Dates of attendance Grade level Participation in officially recognized activities and sports Weight and height of members of athletic teams Degrees, honors, and awards received The most recent educational agency or institution attended Student ID number, user ID, or other unique personal identifier used to communicate in electronic systems that cannot be used to access education records without a PIN, password, etc. (A student's SSN, in whole or in part, cannot be used for this purpose.)

Homewreckers do it again, three rodeo wins in a row
Jones (L) of Kadoka, Lex Grooms of Sharps Corner, Frank Carlson of Belvidere and Tyler Jones of Kadoka. Their most recent was in White River on Friday, August 17. The team also had fast times in the crazy man’s race and rescue race. On August 12 the team competed at Lower Brule’s Ranch Rodeo and were awarded second place. Following the rodeo, it was discovered that the scores were not added correctly and the Homewrecker’s had the highest score, which gave them claim to first place. On July 21 the team also captured a win at the Murdo Ranch Rodeo. Pictured with the Homewrecker’s is Larry Carlson who purchased the team during the calcutta at White River and Lower Brule. --photo by Robyn Jones

Haakon-Jackson County FSA
Duke Westerberg, County Executive Director
As most of you know by now, the Emergency Conservation Program (ECP) signup for Haakon and Jackson Counties started Monday, August 20, 2012 and will run for 30 days; the deadline is September 18, 2012. Due to the ongoing drought, ECP is being implemented to help alleviate livestock water programs. Temporary or permanent practices may be costshared as the need exists. Currently, there is no funding for ECP but we hope to see funding in the near future. Since ECP funds are currently ‘pending’, we are only able to approve applications as “pending funding”. In other words, there are no guarantees there will ever be money to fund the ECP applications. In order to be eligible for ECP cost shares for livestock water, applicants must have an inadequate water source (due to the drought) and they must have grass available for grazing. If funding is provided, eligible producers may receive cost share assistance depending on how much money is allocated for ECP, how many applications are submitted and how much money is needed to honor the applications. The County FSA Committee may set cost share rates at 50 percent up to 75 percent and they will likely set the rate in consideration of the three factors I just mentioned. Two emergency livestock water practices under ECP were approved for Haakon and Jackson Counties. Practice EC-6 is primarily for installing pipelines and storage tanks as another source of water because the primary source is inadequate. Pipelines may be above ground (considered a temporary practice) or below ground (considered a permanent practice). Practice EC-7 is for hauling water to livestock. For more information or to submit an ECP application, please contact the Haakon-Jackson County FSA Office at 605-8592186.

Bob Fanning, Plant Pathology Field Specialist • 605-842-1267 SDSU Sunflower and Commercial Corn and Soybean Plot Tours SDSU Extension will hold a tour of the Sunflower Variety Yield Trial on Wednesday, September 12, beginning at 5:00 p.m. CDT. To get to the plot, from I-90, exit 226 at Presho, travel 6.5 miles south on SD Hwy 183, then 4.25 miles west. Kathy Grady, SDSU Extension Oilseeds Specialist, will present an overview of the plot, and discuss disease, insect and other issues that are apparent and how to manage them. Representatives from seed companies with hybrids in the plot have been invited to talk about their products and answer questions. Interested growers are also invited to a tour of the commercial corn and soybean plots at the Kim Halverson Farm, at approximately 6:00 p.m. CDT that evening. The plots are located 4 miles south of I90 exit 235 at Kennebec, and 1.75 miles east. In addition to the corn and soybean hybrids that Kim offers, he has established a corn population test, consisting of populations from 16,000 to 28,000 plants per acre. Kim will offer a meal of pork loin sandwiches following the tour in his garage. Fall Winter Wheat Tour – Dakota Lakes Research Farm SDSU Extension will hold a Fall Winter Wheat Tour at the Dakota Lakes Research Farm, Wednesday, August 29, beginning at 10:00 a.m. The Dakota Lakes Research Farm is located 17 miles east of Pierre on SD Hwy 34. The tour will consist of a variety of presentations pertinent to winter wheat producers including variety recommendations, weed, disease and insect control. A meal will be served at noon, sponsored by the SD Wheat Commission. Trees and Drought The symptoms of severe drought-stress for deciduous trees include leaf scorching (margins of the leaf and area between veins turning brown), yellowing, wilting and eventually shedding, beginning first with the oldest leaves and progressing to the youngest. This loss of leaves in some species is a mechanism to survive the severe moisture deficit. The symptoms of severe drought-stress for conifers include needle browning then yellowing on pines and needle tips turning yellow, then red for spruce. Eventually the older needles are shed, and then the younger ones. What can be done now? Even if your tree is beginning to shed leaves it should still be watered on a regular basis. Continuing to irrigate will improve the chances that the tree will resume normal growth the next year. We are also coming up to the time when trees begin to prepare for winter and a stressed tree is less likely to complete the hardening process and more susceptible to winter injury. Watering trees, particularly conifers, from mid-August through September is critical to their winter survival. An established tree in the yard should receive a slow soaking about once or twice a week for at least 30 minutes, applied within the radius of half the tree’s height. This is enough water to allow the tree to survive under severe drought conditions, not to thrive. Water is the only resource trees need now. Do not fertilize drought-stressed trees and avoid any herbicide use if possible as the additional stress may further injure the tree.
