KCBA makes plans for homecoming activities
~ by Ronda Dennis ~ KCBA members met for their monthly meeting on Thursday, August 2 at the H&H Restaurant. Patty Ulmen called the meeting to order in the absence of President Jackie Stilwell. Cindy Wilmarth reported that the current balance on hand is $13,846.07. A bill from Rosenbaum’s Signs in the amount of $2,861.69 was approved. This included work to the Kadoka sign east of town and a new wrap for the sign. Later in the meeting it was noted the sign on the west side of Kadoka also needs attention. Kenny Wilmarth said he’s working with Rosenbaum’s. KCBA members said they would like to see drafts for the sign at the September meeting. It was mentioned that Kadoka Area High School homecoming will be on Friday, September 21. Jim Fugate will oversee the KCBA pancake supper, with the help of Rich Bendt, who will be ordering pancake mix, syrup, etc. A motion carried to pre-authorize the purchase of the Punt, Pass & Kick trophies for homecoming. Patty Ulmen said the year-todate 3B’s revenue is down by over $2,000. She said, for now, the budget will stay the same, however, next year, if the revenue is not up, money will need to come out of KCBA membership dues. It was expected that revenue will be up at the end of summer. Vernon Uhlir said he’d recently attended a meeting at the Badlands National Park and they are showing a 13% increase at the park and 20% at the book store. Uhlir said suggested that KCBA invite the park superintendent to a KCBA meeting. There was some discussion on the rails to trails, which is still in the planning stages. Gene Christensen asked if there would be any support from KCBA concerning the city adoption of the comprehensive plan? Due to a conflict of interest (City of Kadoka/KCBA), Ulmen turned the meeting over to Cindy Wilmarth, who then asked the members for discussion. Christensen, and others, said they have not been following the comprehensive plan. After discussion members said with only a few KCBA members attending the meeting, they could not speak for the entire group and everyone should do it individually. Christensen questioned that if economic development can not move forward without the plan, it needs to be adopted. He said, “The course we are on isn’t working.”
School board take no action on housing issue
~ by Robyn Jones ~ The Kadoka Area School Board held a special meeting on Thursday, August 2 at 8 p.m. Board members present were Ross Block, Dale Christensen and DJ Addison. Member Dawn Rasmussen was present via speaker phone and Mark Williams was also present via speaker phone during part of the meeting. The meeting was held to discuss housing needs for the elementary principal. Superintendent Jamie Hermann stated that several property owners had been contacted to inquire about the possibility of renting a house for the principal and his family. The search for a rental property has not been successful. Elementary Principal Jeff Nemecek stated that even though there are several homes for sale at the present time in Kadoka, purchasing one is not an option due to the fact that his current house is listed on the market and has not been sold yet. Considering the situation, the school board was proposing the option of purchasing a house and renting it to the principal. Several people in attendance stated that they felt the school should not be in the business of purchasing houses for rent and concerned with the property being removed from the tax roll. The proper notice of the special meeting and posting of the agenda was questioned, as well as the executive session on the agenda for the purpose of marketing and pricing strategies. Hermann stated that the school attorney recommended that the board enter executive session under that reason. After a twenty minute executive session, the board returned to open session with no action taken.

High temperatures can decrease garden yields
Gardeners may be noticing the effects of our recent high temperatures, according to Dr. Rhoda Burrows, Extension Horticulturist. "Hot dry winds can also exacerbate the combined effect of heat stress and water stress, as it can be difficult to deliver sufficient water to the plant under those conditions," Dr. Burrows said. The following are some of the effects Burrows said gardeners may observe on vegetables: Tomatoes: Ideal temperatures for growing tomatoes are 75 to 80 degrees. Temperatures over 100 degrees F can prevent fruit set, and temperatures in the 90's can also prevent fruit set if nights are warm (over 70 degrees) or the humidity is high. On ripening fruit exposed to strong sun, sunburn can occur, and temperatures over 85 degrees decrease development of red color in the fruit. Heat also tends to increase blossom end rot because the fruit expands too rapidly for the plant to take up calcium quickly enough to distribute it to the expanding fruit. Uneven watering will also result in the same problem, as the plant needs moisture in order to take up and move calcium to the fruit. Squash: High temperatures (over 86 degrees) accelerate flower closing (mid to late morning), so pollination must be accomplished by bees early in the morning. Squash and pumpkin flowers must be pollinated within a few hours of opening, or will fall off the plant. Peppers: Drought stress early in the season decreases leaf area and fruit yield, especially during blossoming. The optimal temperature for growing bell peppers is 72 degrees; hot peppers can withstand somewhat higher temperatures. Temperatures above 90 can stop fruit set altogether on bell peppers, especially under dry conditions, and even temperatures in the 80s can decrease yield by 50%. Potatoes: Drought can cause tubers to crack, resulting in misshapen tubers at harvest. Cucumbers: Heat and drought increase bitterness. Green beans: Fruit set of beans will be reduced or stopped altogether at temperatures over 85 degrees, with some variation in cultivars. Bush-type (as opposed to pole) beans have fairly shallow root systems, so gardeners need to be careful to keep their soil moist. Smaller-seeded cultivars germinate better in warm (over 80 degrees) soils; larger-seeded cultivars in cooler (54 degree) soils. Sweet corn: Corn is one of the most heat-tolerant vegetables, but is still sensitive during silking. The primary concern with hot temperatures is to maintain water supply to the roots to ensure good "tip-fill" of the ears. Lettuce: Many types of lettuce will not germinate when soil temperatures are over 80 to 85 degrees, so late summer plantings for a fall crop must be grown from transplants germinated in a cooler place. Broccoli & Cauliflower: Temperatures over 80 degrees disrupt head development, leading to small scattered bunches of florets. Water stress can cause the heads to develop too quickly, with similar results. What can a gardener do to ameliorate the effects of high temperatures? "Some tomato growers in other areas of the country are resorting to shadecloth or even mist systems to cool the plants" Burrows said. "Although we generally encourage drip systems to avoid plant diseases and to conserve water, short periods of overhead watering may be beneficial to cool the plants during the hottest hours of the day, especially when humidity levels are low. However, avoid having water on the foliage for more than a few hours at a time, as longer periods of leaf wetness allow diseases to invade."

Creative Breakfast Ideas Since you were a young child, you’ve probably heard someone tell you that breakfast was the most important meal of the day. They were correct. We all “fast” for eight to 12 hours after going all night without food. Eating breakfast serves to “break the fast” or refuel your body. Breakfast should provide about one-fourth of your daily recommended intake of calories, vitamins and minerals. For children, this means about 400-600 calories should be consumed at breakfast. Children who eat breakfast increase their nutrition. They are more likely to meet their daily needs for calcium, iron, riboflavin, vitamins A and D. Kids who eat a healthy breakfast regularly tend to have better concentration and are more prepared to learn. They are more alert, have fewer behavioral issues and are more involved at school. They are also not as tired or irritable. Children often skip breakfast because they are busy rushing to school or they aren’t hungry in the morning. It’s difficult to replace nutrients missed at breakfast, so kids should be encouraged to take foods that they can eat on the way to school. By thinking outside of the box,
you can prepare breakfast using simple and time efficient methods. Try these tips to keep breakfast fun for the whole family: Make breakfast smoothies by combining orange juice, bananas, strawberries and blueberries in a blender and blend until smooth. Add a little low-fat milk or fat-free plain yogurt to your ingredients to increase calcium and protein. Use a whole wheat tortilla to wrap around scrambled eggs and grated cheese in the morning or prepare them the night before. Add variety to your wrap by adding black beans, diced tomatoes, or turkey sausage. For no-cook breakfast ideas try a fruit salad and a granola bar or half of a whole-wheat bagel with low-fat cream cheese and strawberry slices. Make yogurt parfaits the night before by layering lowfat yogurt, fruit and granola in a clear cup; store them in the refrigerator. Do you have a plan for those mornings when you are in a really big rush? Grab an apple, a string cheese and a few whole-wheat crackers for eating on the run. Eating breakfast helps you perform and feel better. Good planning for breakfast can help you increase your total nutrients for the day.

Rick Holm, M.D., Medical Editor Connie Constipation
Connie Constipation is an older woman who has controlled almost everything throughout her life except for her bowels. It seems the harder she’s tried to make the bowels move, the more constipated or irregular she’s become. She’s always sought for the right laxative, and is now using “herbal lightening” without a lot of success. She commonly feels bloated, waiting for the call, often sitting on the commode for long periods of time, pushing too hard, and then she’s loose as a goose having tripled her laxative dose. Connie is one frustrated woman. The causes for constipation are numerous to include too little exercise, too few fiber foods, internal scars from previous surgery, diverticulosis, low thyroid, and even colon cancer. Certainly everyone with constipation needs to consider first seeing a doctor for the proper evaluation. But I believe the most common cause for constipation around here is the long-term use of the stimulant type of laxatives such as Exlax, Correctol, stool softener WITH LAXATIVE, Senna, and many herbal type combinations. Realize that abruptly stopping stimulant laxatives causes rebound constipation, and thus dependency. Many people have a problem perpetuated by the very drug they use to treat it. This is the reason to gradually taper off these bowel irritants, and then avoid them in the future. Good bowel health starts with exercise, a diet of fruit, vegetables, fiber foods; and then if needed by adding ground golden flax seed. I suggest buying it whole and grinding the flax in a coffee grinder, (½ cup at a time prevents it turning rancid,) then daily mixing one or two tablespoons with breakfast cereal, yogurt, or applesauce. If an individual is still having problems I advise plain stool softeners WITHOUT LAXATIVE. Start with one to three capsules once or twice a day, adjusting the dose accordingly. If necessary, rescue with over-the-counter polyethylene glycol (generic MiraLax,) milk of magnesia, or sorbitol. These are effective and do not cause rebound. If she exercises daily, eats the right food with enough fiber, and avoids laxatives, then Connie will be back in control.
Letter to the Editor
Dear Editor: Our Kadoka city council is going to again address the adoption of a “comprehensive plan” at their meeting on Monday, August 13th. Folks appointed as planning advisers by our city council were dedicated to the statement that they wanted to “clean up Kadoka.” They recommended our city council vote to agree to an extremely vague Comprehensive Plan proposal based in part on estimated and outdated data. Perhaps some believe this would solve local problems. Others feel the council could be insulated from law suits when moving against a property owner. They do not realize that these problems will be “grandfathered.” Until property owners seek permits to modify their property they cannot be regulated by state or federal government absent health or safety concerns. Those too could become legal issues. One example of grandfathering involved an older couple who moved a surplus railroad depot and remodeled it into an very attractive retirement home near Ogallala, Nebraska. This was done before their property was annexed by the city after a comprehensive plan was adopted. All went well until the gentleman needed a ramp for his wheelchair. That modification removed grandfathered protections. The permit was denied because of the rules dictated that eaves of the home were several inches too wide. In order to comply with state and federal regulations the roof would have to be replaced. Their retirement budget could not afford that. The elderly lady canvassed the neighborhood seeking neighbors’ signatures to justify a “variance.” We left Nebraska months later – permit still pending. Other incidents of micro management by regulation involve “set backs” when a modification or improvement permit is applied for. If an existing structure is too close to the property line moving or destruction of the offending structure could be required before any improvement is permitted. This had a negative effect on several property improvement plans I have heard of. If the plan is adopted our new vocabulary will include more words like “population densities” and “zoning” which could require certain types of development only in designated areas. “Compliance” is another great word that could get very important. That places pricey architects, environmental engineers and lawyers between property owners wallets and building permits. Presently Kadoka building permits are in the hands of our elected officials and a up or down vote. Under a comprehensive plan permits or variances could take months as appointed state officials steeped in a multitude of regulations govern city and private property rights. There is an old saying, “government that governs least governs best.” /s/ Glenn T. Freeman Box 406 Kadoka, SD 57543
SD Commission On Child Support to hold hearings on proposed guideline changes
The Governor’s Commission on Child Support will conduct a public hearing to gather input on potential changes to South Dakota’s child support guidelines and related statutes on Monday, August 13, 2012. Individuals may appear to provide public testimony at the Palisades Rooms 1 & 2 of the Holiday Inn City Centre in Sioux Falls from 6-8 p.m. The commission is conducting its required four-year review of South Dakota’s child support guidelines and is comprised of representatives of custodial and noncustodial parents, family law attorneys, the judiciary, the legislature, and the Department of Social Services. The commission may recommend changes that reflect adjustments in the costs of raising children, and may address other issues with related statutes. The commission will submit its report and recommendations to the Governor by Dec. 31, 2012, to be considered during the 2013 legislative session. Discussions during the public hearings will be limited to potential changes to the child support guidelines and statutes. The hearings are not intended for specific comments or complaints involving individual child support cases or visitation. Written comments or suggestions may also be submitted for consideration by the full commission by mailing them to the Department of Social Services, Attn: Child Support Commission, 700 Governors Drive, Pierre, S.D. 57501-2291 or e-mailing DCS@state.sd.us. Deadline for public comments is September 1, 2012.
USDA authorizes release of environmentally sensitive CRP acres for emergency haying and grazing
USDA Farm Service Agency (FSA) State Executive Director Craig Schaunaman, has announced that USDA has authorized the release of additional Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) acres that are considered to be environmentally sensitive for emergency haying and grazing purposes. "The inclusion of these acres under the CRP emergency haying and grazing provisions allows livestock producers access to forage on approximately 460,000 CRP acres in South Dakota that are devoted to wetland and farmable wetland practices," said Schaunaman. "USDA, along with Federal, State, and local partners collaborated to support the release of these additional acres in response to livestock feed needs that are prevalent as a result of the wide spread drought conditions across the continental United States," he said. Emergency haying and grazing of CRP has been authorized for all South Dakota counties. Producers must file an application with their local FSA office prior to conducting any haying or grazing activity. Under CRP emergency haying and grazing provisions, haying and grazing may begin on August 2nd; however, haying may not exceed August 31, 2012, and grazing may not exceed September 30, 2012. Currently there are approximately one million acres of CRP available for emergency haying and grazing in South Dakota. On July 11, 2012, Secretary Vilsack announced 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 farmers and ranchers 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.
Psalm 25:3-5 Waiting for God's timing is neither passive nor idle-it takes discipline and commitment. I can think of four basic requirements for successful waiting. Requirements of Waiting Faith. The Lord's ways and timing are nothing like ours (Isa. 55:8-9). From a human standpoint, He usually does things in a totally different way than we expect. But as we trust Him more, we'll discover that His approach isn't so strange after all. And when we live in harmony with God's will, His timing starts to make sense. Humility. To wait for the Lord, you must be convinced of your need for Him. Submission to His divine will requires humility--you cannot charge ahead with your own plans and at the same time be fully surrendered to God. Patience. Are you willing to remain in your current position until you receive clear divine direction? Pausing for clarity from God does not mean that you disengage and allow circumstances to fall apart around you. Waiting upon the Lord is a deliberate decision that requires patience. Courage. Waiting for God often takes courage, especially when there is pressure to act. If you're not careful, you might stop listening to the Lord and follow other advice. So keep your ear attuned to the voice of Almighty God, and you won t go wrong. Waiting upon the Lord is one of the wisest, most important decisions we make in life. And contrary to popular assumptions, it is an active endeavor that requires faith, humility, patience, and courage. When you rely upon God and wait for His timing, the various facets of life fall into place.

Lookin’ Around

Feeding the Birds
I fed the birds on the way home from church today. As I drove down the road, I occasionally tossed a piece of bread Frisbee-style out the open window on the passenger side of the pickup. I figured the sparrows, meadowlarks and other flying creatures deserved a treat. It was also a good way to get rid of some unwanted bread. As it happened, I had stored an older loaf of bread in the freezer over a month ago planning to make some bread pudding out of it for the coffee time after church. Well, yesterday, I dug that loaf back out, thawed it, and collected the utensils needed to make bread pudding. Unfortunately, I’d originally left the bread out too long before freezing it so the third and fourth slices had big splotches of green mold. So much for bread pudding. Think of something else to make for church. Some brownies might do the trick, but what to do with moldy bread? In the past, that would have been simple. Feed it to the chickens. Alas, at present we have no chickens so that won’t work. We do, however, have a whole prairie full of every kind of bird imaginable, and all of them probably have digestive systems that wouldn’t be bothered by the odd bit of bread or, in fact, lots of other stuff that is only slightly digestible by humans. That’s one of the neater things about chickens. You can feed them almost anything, and they’ll thrive on it and, what’s more, construct eggs out of it. In the past, I’ve had food go so bad that I was afraid to feed it to the cats for fear of making them sick, but flying creatures don’t seem adversely affected in the least. I give you buzzards as an example. They actually crave stuff so rotten that, if we could even get it down, it wouldn’t stay there or else it would probably make us deathly ill. Oh for the digestive system of a buzzard. You wouldn’t ever have to wash dishes or worry in the slightest about sanitation or the wholesomeness of food. Such a deal. Bird watching, incidentally, is rather enjoyable. I am supposed to be the authority on these creatures since I took a semester of bird watching (ornithology) in college. It did help me to identify the more common species correctly most of the time, but there is always the rare one that sends me running for one of several guidebooks. We also have usually had a bird feeder set up on the deck or somewhere close in order to attract birds to watch. It’s rather fun. If wife Corinne spots an unknown variety, she’ll often ask me to come look and tell her what it is. If I don’t happen to know, I usually just say it’s probably a duck, which, as you might imagine, yields me a look of scorn. Corinne somehow doesn’t think that paddle-footed ducks are likely to frequent a bird feeder where there are only skinny little roosts to perch on. We don’t have a regular feeder set up right now, but earlier this year we enjoyed feeding the grackles by a different method. These black fellows were often seen outside our back window so one day I decided to see how they liked bread. I tossed four old pieces out for them. They were delighted. One fellow practically jumped up and down in excitement. He started carrying it off bit by bit to who knows where. Maybe he had a family to support or something. Sometimes he would be joined by friends who were quick to get the picture. They, too, would hop right in and help themselves. At present, the black guys aren’t around much since they probably have their offspring raised and are all flying together in a flock somewhere else. The sparrows are ever with us, of course, but Corinne won’t let me feed them right now since she wants them to keep the grasshopper population in check. They’ve been doing that. Quite often you see a little fellow working on a huge hopper that’s bigger than its head. Eventually, most of the hopper is gone and the bird is looking around for more. Perhaps he’s eaten all the tasty parts and wants a fresh kill. I’m not sure what’s going on or why, but the process is entertaining no matter what. Still, the prohibition against feeding the sparrows made me look elsewhere for a different method of moldybread disposal.

Marie said they drove in heavy rain most of the way from Midland back to Murdo, but Murdo ended up getting very little moisture. This week, Marie will be in Montana visiting relatives and celebrating her 90th birthday a little early. She expects there will be a second party locally later this year when she actually turns 90. Larry Grimme said Francie Davis and boys have been helping clean out the Christian School building lately. Lois Grimme had collected many teaching materials in her 21 years in town, and much of it was still good but needed to be distributed to other people who home school or can use it in other ways. Larry also said the bass are biting pretty well at the Belvidere Dam, and he sometimes stops to visit those who are fishing along the road. Syd Iwan traveled to Rapid City last week to get a new chair for his son, Chance, and some other supplies that aren’t available locally. The freeway was busy with many motorcycles, campers and trailers. On Sunday, if a person traveled east on the freeway, he would pass about 100 or more motorcycles headed west on the opposite lane over each ten miles. This was just the visible cycles and not those invisible inside the many trailers also headed west.

“The hardest job kids face today is learning good manners without seeing any.” Fred Astaire Doug and Lynda Littau of Mesa, AZ visited in the area this past weekend. They had been in Iowa for a wedding and came on west before heading back home. They visited the Hubers Sunday. The Hubers have finished combining wheat and now are checking over the sunflowers. Kenda, Nicole, Braeden and Bradley Huber were in Winner Thursday the 27th, and one of the errands accomplished was getting haircuts for Braeden and Bradley. That was only the second haircut for Bradley, and it’s almost like looking at a different little boy. Gary, Anne, Marilyn, Stanley and Maureece Heinert joined the Ed and Louise Heinert family in Sparks Saturday evening for the wedding of Ed and Louise’s son, Cody, to Elizabeth in the church in Sparks, Nebraska. The reception and dance following the wedding was held in their restaurant there. Marilyn put her new parts to work and got in some dancing, too! The weekend of July 21, Susan and Morgan went to Custer for a family weekend at Outlaw Ranch, where Heather is employed for the summer. They enjoyed some canoe rides, rain, an illusionist/magician and some other activities. The last Saturday in July Susan and Morgan joined Nette Heinert and journeyed to Valentine to get some sweet corn. Samantha continues her internship in the hospital in Yankton. Susan now works in the Norris Post Office full time. July 26, Howard and Nette Heinert visited Earl Weiss in Hot Springs. On the 30th, they picked up Bob Totton in Murdo and took him with them for a day in Pierre. Wednesday, August 1st, Nette, Toby and a couple of his friends helped Nette pick a lot of sweet corn for freezing. She brought some back for Tafts, too. Sunday Chris Heinert accompanied Wesley Schmidt to Brookings on business. Cliff Allard attended an auction in Kadoka Sunday. Tuesday, July 31, Lyle O’Bryan of Belvidere came and picked up Maxine Allard, and they continued on to Martin, where they joined Dean O’Bryan in his outfit and traveled to Hot Springs for an O’Bryan sibling reunion at Betty’s home. Others who came for the event were Tom and Rosella O’Bryan from Minnesota, Helen and John Colton of Hermosa, Ed O’Bryan of Nebraska and Charles’ son, Mike O’Bryan, of Martin. Thursday JaLynn Burma, Beaver, Jade, Jakki and a friend visited Maxine, getting her help with curing a rattlesnake skin they had just harvested from a snake that Jakki had spotted while they were out walking. Jason killed and skinned it, and then they went to Maxine for help. June and Matthew Ring arrived while they were there, and later had supper with Maxine. Friday, Sharon Allard left Spearfish and met Mike Carlson of Wisconsin in Kadoka, where he parked his motorcycle and rode with Sharon down to Maxine’s. They managed to get a bunch of chores done, as well as visiting. Saturday before they left, Sharon phoned Maxine’s daughter-in-law, Gertrude Ladegaard Thorenson, and handed the phone over to Maxine, so she could visit and wish Gertrude a happy birthday. Sunday afternoon Evan and Dorothy Bligh stopped in to visit Maxine, and later that evening, June Ring came for a sandwich and dessert and fashion show. Jean, Edna and Rebekkah Kary were in Rapid City on business last Tuesday. Last Tuesday Jim, Marjorie and Julie Letellier, the Burma’s and the Beckwith’s were supper guests of Andrea Beckwith. Wednesday the Burma’s went to Miller, but they left Beaver and Jade with Jim and Marjorie, who took them to Pine Ridge, where the Blackpipe ball team played Martin and won 1713. Then they had to wait around until it was their turn to play again, which was after midnight. They played Porcupine and won 13-0, as the game was called when they were far enough ahead. They didn’t get home until 4:00 a.m. Chris WoodenKnife had a rummage and taco sale at the Norris Hall Friday. Friday there was a fire north of Norris beyond Corn Creek. Jan Rasmussen had guests from Minneapolis last Wednesday and Thursday. Her great-niece Jenny and family and friends (eight in all) brought their bicycles and went cycling in the Badlands. They cooked meals for all while they were here, and then headed to the Black Hills for more cycling and sight-seeing. Dawn and Laura Rasmussen have been busy with jewelry shows in states around the area, most recently in Sheridan, WY. They headed for Sturgis to set up in the South Dakota Made Products booth. Amy, Jason and Patrick Lehman spent a few days in the Hills last week. Robert and Sharon Ring were in Rapid City last Monday to keep doctor appointments for both of them. Debbie came from Spearfish to join them for the day. Louann Krogman was in Rapid City last Wednesday for a doctor appointment. Thursday Bobbi Kelley and Cella Hermson joined her and they traveled to Winner where they met Dorothy Richardson, who came from Nebraska to have lunch and visit with them. Friday Louann helped the girls’ basketball coach and team with a big rummage sale in White River, which benefitted the girls’ team. Friday evening supper guests at Blaine and Louann’s home were Hilary and Evan Nesheim. Richard and Noreen Krogman were among the friends and neighbors at the Cedar Butte branding party at George and Delpha Fairbanks’ ranch Saturday, July 28. The menu included fish, rocky mountain oysters and frog legs. The frog legs were thanks to the gigging effort of Jason and Patrick Lehman. Monday, August 30, there was a pot luck meal at the Clarence Krogman home, with Father Terry

Crystal Paulson has been traveling the world lately, or at least as far as El Paso, Texas. She went there to help watch over her grandKeeghan, while daughter, Keeghan’s mom, Davina, was in Florida in connection with some military training. Davina’s husband, Tracy, has recently returned stateside from a stint of military service in Afghanistan, but he was not sure he was up to taking care of a busy six-year-old without a little help. Crystal’s sister-in-law, April Obr, (Gary’s wife) went along to help. While there, various outings were taken with care being taken not to accidentally get across the border into Mexico since many roads lead there. Some thrift stores and flea markets were visited. They left a week ago Thursday and got home this Saturday with April being dropped at her home in Rapid City before Crystal returned to Belvidere. Crystal said the weather there was very hot and humid and miserable or about like it was here. She also said the main draw of El Paso would be a grandkid and not necessarily the city itself although there were a few old buildings that were interesting to look at or tour. Greg and Dana Badure have been kept really busy lately with their rest-area maintenance east of town since the freeway is loaded with motorcycles and other tourists. On Sunday evening, kids Brisa and Martin had a guest overnight, namely Tyce Amiotte who is a grandson of Rhonda Terkildsen. Dana said that suggestions of going to bed were met with resistance as too much fun was being had. On Wednesday, the kids participated in the fun night at the O’Bryan’s. Fun was in fact had despite the temperatures reaching into the hundreds that day. Bunny Green was visited by her daughter, Darlene Wiedemer, on Wednesday. Darlene had recently acquired a new poodle and needed to show it off. Wally Wells came by several days last week with the mail but couldn’t stay too long as things are fairly busy up at the gas station which he runs. On Monday, Bunny was expecting a visit from her granddaughter from Oklahoma. She will be in the area several weeks visiting her mom at Sturgis. Bunny’s foot has now healed enough from being stabbed by a toothpick that she was able to get out to church on Sunday. She said she wasn’t quite up to foot races just yet, but at least she could get around without a lot of misery. Francie Davis and sons, Grady, Garrett and Gage, were in Philip on Friday and Saturday. Francie was on the food committee for the 4-H achievement days where they fed approximately 500 people over five meals. Francie also read some of her poetry at the talent contest although not in competition but as an addition to the event. She said reading poetry to a lot of people is a more nervous operation than reciting to family and friends. On Wednesday, Francie and boys plus Abby Fortune helped Bob and Chuck Fortune AI about 230 heifers over at the Carr place near Cedar Butte. They started early but, by the time they got done, the temperature read 99 degrees. This week, the crew will be in Kadoka helping with Rodeo Bible Camp. They will be running the concession stand. Marie Addison and Grace McKillip attended George Anderson’s birthday party on Wednesday of last week at the senior citizen
Brennan as special guest. Quinn Thomas Krogman was born to Darrin and Amber Krogman on Saturday, July 28, and weighed in at 7 lbs. 3 ozs. Cliff and Elaine went down to see them, and all seemed fine at first with the baby. However, complications arose and they flew him to Sioux Falls and put him in intensive care, where he is steadily improving and was doing well at the last report. Cliff and Elaine took Owen with them so he could see his parents and his little brother this past weekend. Adam and Jody went with them, also. Rose West and Jeannine Woodward were among the Master Gardeners making the trek to Donita Denke’s home and garden Saturday. Besides a tour of the place, they also made Tin Men. August 1st was (first Wednesday) at the museum in White River; instead of a meal, this time they served root beer floats. Lightning apparently started a fire by the barn at West and Woodward’s place, which was also apparently put out by the sudden downpour of rain that night, as the burned out area wasn’t discovered until the next day or so. They were without power for awhile Thursday night. Tyler Ring hosted a campout in the tent in his front yard Monday, August 30. Overnight guests were Matthew and Stephanie Ring and Ryan Running Enemy. They enjoyed some swimming in the pool the next morning. Saturday, August 4, Bruce, June and Matthew Ring traveled to Rapid City, where Matthew boarded the plane and flew home to Texas. Bruce and June ran a bunch of errands around the city and found a couple good bargains before heading home late that night. Wednesday morning Irene Kaufman, Carol Ferguson, Moya Brickman and Margie Popkes made a trip to Valentine, NE. Ed Ferguson drove a truck to Philip to leave for repairs on Thursday morning. Carol and granddaughter, Moya, followed behind in the car. They stopped in Kadoka for lunch on the return trip. Sunday Moya and Carol stopped after church to see Irene Kaufman. There will be a retirement reception honoring the retiring postmasters in the 575 area in Kadoka on Sunday, August 12. It will begin at 2:00 p.m. MT at the community room of the Gateway Apartments. Those retiring from the United States Postal Service from this area are Carol Ferguson, Norris, Kathy Strain, White River, Rose Mooney, St. Francis, and Alta Christensen, Martin.

Gail Reutter spent the weekend in Castlewood at the home of her daughter and husband, Mandy and Sean Simpson. Also visiting were her other daughters, Crystal Ring of Gillette, WY, and Angel and Roger Getz and family of Pierre. They all enjoyed going to Watertown on Saturday to the 9th Annual Terry Redlin Summer Concert Celebration featuring the music of Dennis DeYoung of the Styx. On Friday Castlewood was hit by a major wind and rain storm which took out three huge trees in the Simpson’s yard. The damage done in Castlewood was featured on KELOLAND news. Carmen Huffman went to rural Pukwana on Thursday and spent the day visiting her mom, Dorothy Houska. On the way home that evening she encountered the wind and rain storm that hit this area. She also said that Casey and Curtis Huffman of Wessington Springs were traveling to Webster and had stopped in Huron on Friday when the storm in that area hit. They were not allowed to leave the WalMart store until the storm passed and joined all the other shoppers and staff in the basement, before going on to Webster. Brett and Tammy Prang have taken their products from Incredible Metal to the Buffalo Chip campground for the duration of the Sturgis Rally. This is the second year they have been a vendor there. Lonnie Jo Doney and children of Valentine, NE, and Nona and Kieth Prang are holding down the duties at the ranch while they are gone.

This & That …
Parents of pre-teens and college freshmen should check their kids’ immunizations before the school year starts, says a state health official. “Parents should know that babies and toddlers aren’t the only ones who need immunizations,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist for the Department of Health. Kightlinger said college freshmen living in dorms and unvaccinated kids entering high school are at high risk for meningococcal disease and should be vaccinated. A bacterial infection, meningococcal disease is an inflammation of the tissues covering the brain and spinal cord. Symptoms include fever, severe headache, stiff neck, vomiting and a rash. Prompt treatment can prevent disability and death. Ten to 14 percent of people with the disease die and up to 19 percent of survivors may suffer permanent disabilities such as hearing loss, limb amputation or brain disease. South Dakota typically reports 3 cases of meningococcal disease a year. To date in 2012, there have been no cases reported. A pertussis, or whooping cough, vaccine booster dose is recommended at 11-12 years when immunity begins to wane. The initial pertussis series is given to children at 2 months, 4 months, 6 months, 15-18 months, and 4-6 years. Whooping cough is a serious illness that causes uncontrollable coughing, rib fractures, pneumonia, loss of consciousness and even death. Young children are at highest risk, with two-thirds of those under age 1 who get it needing hospitalization. There have been six pertussis cases reported in South Dakota to date in 2012. Meningococcal vaccine is available from family health care providers and campus student health centers. The department provides the vaccine for those 11-18 years of age who are eligible for the federal Vaccines for Children Pro-

Back to school means immunizations for pre-teens, college freshmen gram (Medicaid eligible, Native American or Alaskan Native, uninsured or underinsured). The vaccine is free for these children but providers may charge an administration fee. The department provides the childhood series of whooping cough vaccine and the booster dose free for 11-12 year olds. Providers may charge an administration fee. To find a vaccine provider, see http://doh.sd.gov/LocalOffices/Vaccine.aspx. Learn more about meningitis or whooping cough at http://doh.sd.gov/DiseaseFacts/. Improving immunization rates is a key objective of the department’s Health 2020 initiative.

Winner Regional Extension Center
Bob Fanning, Plant Pathology Field Specialist • 605-842-1267 Winter Wheat Meeting in Draper, SD Mark your calendars and plan to attend the “Winter Wheat Meeting” at the auditorium in Draper, SD, beginning at 6:30 p.m., Thursday, August 16. We will start the meeting with a meal prepared by the Draper United Methodist Women and sponsored by area agribusinesses. John Rickertsen, Cropping Systems Field Specialist, will discuss the Winter Wheat Crop Performance Testing results, variety recommendations for 2013, and provide some comments about the growing season. Jonathan Nixon, Entomology Field Specialist, will present information on insect pests affecting wheat production, some of the predators that prey on those insects and management options when natural controls aren’t enough. Winter wheat produced an excellent crop in 2012, and may be the bright spot in this cropping season. This year strengthened winter wheat’s importance as a major crop in south-central South Dakota, and a key component in crop rotations across the state. Tomato IPM Webinar hosted in Winner, SD If you would like to learn how to prevent pests on tomatoes from the beginning to the end of the growing season, you will want to attend the Tomato IPM Webinar for North Central Master Gardeners. The webinar will be presented by Extension Specialists from the University of Minnesota, South Dakota State University, and the University of Illinois. The Winner Regional Extension Center will be one of the host sites for the webinar, which will be held on Tuesday, August 14, from 11:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., CDT. The Winner Regional Extension Center is located at 325 S Monroe St., one block south of the stop light. Participants may want to bring their lunch to enjoy during the webinar. Variety selection, best planting practices, and cultural information will be covered along with how to recognize tomato diseases and deal with insect pests of tomatoes. Participants are encouraged to take a little time to read ahead the materials which can be found at: http://learn.extension.org/events/5 80. Participants are also encouraged to complete the PreTest about your knowledge of Tomato IPM prior to the webinar by visiting: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/WEB22GB4HUTAF5. Nitrate Update Area feed testing labs are getting busy analyzing forages for Nitrates. South Dakota Ag Labs reports that about 50% of the Nitrate tests they have run so far are potentially toxic. Other labs in the region have also indicated they will keep SDSU Extension informed about Nitrate results as testing progresses. Wheat straw is generally considered to be a safe, if low quality feed, but can contain toxic levels of Nitrate. That was recently confirmed as a sample of wheat straw was found to contain just over 2000 ppm Nitrate. That is a level where the straw should be limited to 50% of the ration or less. Producers who plan to feed wheat straw may want to test for Nitrates. For more information, visit: http://igrow.org/agronomy/drought /, you can find informative articles, as well as, under the “Resource Library”, a list of factsheets and publications.

Water lawns and trees, don't apply herbicide
SDSU Extension Specialist says now is not a good time to treat lawns with herbicide. "As the drought continues and lawns are maintained with the semi-weekly waterings to sustain the root system, it may seem like a good time to treat all those green weeds, crab grass, quack grass, etc., etc. Please resist all inclinations along this line, any application of herbicide now would probably not be particularly effective against the weed and the grass would be further stressed," said Katherine Osterloh, SDSU Extension Horticulture Assistant. In addition, Osterloh says fertilizing a lawn during the current drought conditions will not help keep it green or bring it back. "Again, any chemicals applied while the lawn is struggling to survive would only add further stress," Osterloh said. She says the same is true for trees or shrubs. "If possible, continue to water well, but resist applying chemicals of any kind," she said. •Time to water As the drought continues, and significant precipitation has not been received, if a lawn has been dormant for six weeks or longer, Osterloh says it is time to begin watering weekly. "Especially if it is bluegrass or another 'cool season' grass," Osterloh said. She suggests an intial watering of at least an inch to inch and a half, then an inch each week after that. If this watering schedule does not bring the lawn out of dormancy, she says it may be dead and plans should be made to replace this fall. To learn more about how to manage landscape during the drought, and sustainable landscaping for the future, visit iGrow.org.
