Rural Health Care, Inc. celebrates
National Health Center Week 2013
Unique motorcycle visits Murdo
Rural Health Care, Inc. (RHCI)
hosted South Dakota Senator
Larry Lucas at the Murdo Clinic
as part of the National Health
Center Week 2013 (NHCW) cele-
bration (August 11-17). Activities
and events across the state and
nation will highlight the mission
and accomplishments of Ameri-
ca’s Health Centers as local solu-
tions for affordable and accessible
health care.
RHCI is part of a network of
community health centers
(CHCs) providing primary and
preventive care to medically
underserved communities and
populations in South Dakota.
Each CHC offers a convenient,
affordable range of high-quality
services from a team of caring
The staff and providers work
together to review and consider
the medical and mental health
needs of each patient. The value
of this patient-centered health
care home model is easy to see
through the reduced number of
more expensive specialty and
emergency room visits.
With health centers strategi-
cally located throughout central
South Dakota, RHCI welcomes
new and established patients
alike and strives to meet the
needs of the communities it
serves including those areas or
individuals that are underserved.

Combining his love for both
trucking and motorcycles, Walt
Moss of Lake Nebagam, Wis., put
a vision into motion and ended up
with a custom built, one of a kind
Moss bought his first semi on
April Fool’s Day in 1978. The
truck had a 3208 CAT engine, so
when thinking about his custom
motorcycle, he added a 3208 CAT
diesel engine to the plans.
The bike also has twin turbos,
400 horse power, an Allison auto-
matic transmission, air ride sus-
pension and a semi hood for the
Moss hauled the bike from
Wisconsin to Redfield, S.D., as it
was completed on July 28, just in
time for the 2013 Sturgis Rally.
Moss said he had a vision that
turned out to be a nightmare, and
the result was the head turning
He won first place in the trike
category in the Rat’s Hole Custom
Bike Show at the Buffalo Chip
Campground Thursday, August 8.
Moss’s hauling vehicle broke
down in Murdo, resulting in a
couple nights stay waiting for
parts and repairs. He plans to
drive his motorcycle the rest of
the way home.

Senator Larry Lucas, left, visits with Tim Hardwick, Rural Health Care Inc. CEO and Rural Health Care Inc. board
member, Donna Eckert (not pictured). Sen. Lucas toured the Murdo Clinic Monday, August 12. Also present to
speak with the senator were board members Mike Sprenger and Steve Hayes, both of Presho. Board members
not present included: Katherine Patterson, Murdo; Tonya Badger, Ft. Pierre; Mary Alger and Rod Domke, High-
more; Dawn Tassler and Steve Hyde, Onida; Fr. Jerry Kopel and John Langer, Gettysburg.
Walt Moss has owned a motorcycle for as long as he has had a driver’s license and owns a trucking company. He combined these two loves to cre-
ate a custom built motorcycle that is truly one of a kind.
Walt Moss, owner of the unique cycle, visits with patrons at a local steak house in Murdo. While parked at the
steak house, many curious passers by stopped to admire and take pictures of the motorcycle.
The custom-built motorcycle boasts a 3208 CAT diesel engine, the same
engine as Moss’s first semi.

The prayer service/rosary held
at the Catholic church for David
Seamans Monday evening,
August 5, was very well attend-
ed. On Tuesday the funeral was
held at the Draper auditorium
with a super big turnout which
showed that David was a well
liked guy. Father Gary officiated
at the church but had to be out of
town for the funeral, so Father
Hight presided at the funeral.
Rose and Jesse Comp provided
the music. Amanda Henrichs and
Lila Mae Christian were in
charge of the registry. Ushers
were classmates Curt Miller and
Curt Horsley, with Kraig Hen-
richs, Wade Dowling, Doug Nies,
Greg Rankin, Tony Schmidt and
Darin Louder acting as pallbear-
ers. Burial was in the Draper
cemetery next to son Clint. Mili-
tary rites were held with Lill’s
nephew’s stepson, Mike Sinke, in
his Army uniform standing with
our legion at the hall and the
cemetery – a proud moment.
After the burial it was back to
the auditorium for lunch and a
time of fellowship. Lill and Jason
had many, many relatives sur-
rounding them from the Hamer
side and the Seamans side. All of
Lill’s siblings were present along
with many other Hamer rela-
tives. David’s brothers, Paul and
Kurt, and sisters Joanne Sea-
mans of Pierre, Mary Kaye and
Norman Hurst of Mobridge and
their daughter, Tammy and
Kevin Henderson and family
from Ipswich were there. I can
visualize David with his big
smile and being so pleased with
the wonderful turnout of family
and friends paying their last
respects. Rest in peace, Manfred.
Nelva and Janet Louder spent
last Wednesday in Pierre. They
stopped in at Parkwood for coffee
and visits with Lillian Severyn,
Ken Halligan, Joyce Nielsen and
Mona Sharp; also there was
Audrey Hullinger of Vivian. Ear-
lier Janet ran into Virginia Nel-
son, former Murdoite. She and
Janet were in the Murdo hospital
together when they had their
first babies, Vicki and Todd, just
a few years ago!
On Saturday Terri Volmer,
Kim Calkins, Jill Venard and
Phyliss Word attended the funer-
al for aunt/great aunt Thelma
Rada held at the White River
auditorium. Later the group vis-
ited relatives at the home of Jean
and Roland Iwan.
On Friday Lill Seamans
accompanied Chet and Teresa
Hamer to Rapid City. She spent
the nights with son Jason. On
Saturday they joined the Hamers
and others at the home of their
daughter, Ashley and Aaron
Lillebo, for a birthday celebration
of grandson Conner’s fifth birth-
day. The group returned home on
Kris Bradley spent the week-
end with Margaret and Greg
Rankin. Saturday afternoon visi-
tors at the Rankins were Ray and
Shirley Vik.
Funeral services were held
August 7 for longtime Murdo res-
ident Edyth Noldner at the
Murdo UMC with Pastor Hazen
officiating. We extend our sympa-
thy to her family.
Janet Louder’s cousin, Bob
Hall, of Sheridan, Wyo., wheeled
in on his motorcycle for a visit
over coffee Thursday. He had
been at his sisters in Mission and
had also visited relatives in
Presho and Vivian. From here he
went onto Sturgis to meet more
relatives and friends.
Casey and Gavin Miller visit-
ed grandparents Nelva and
Janet Louder on Friday after-
Fred and Mary Mathews
attended the open house held
Sunday at the Ft. Pierre Casey
Tibbs Rodeo Center for the 50th
anniversary of Mack and Karen
Saturday evening Fred and
Mary Mathews, Bruce and Anita
Mathews and girls were among
the group that attended the
steak feed held at a hunting
lodge north of Draper.
The Kadoka rest home hosted
a dinner for the residents and
their families on Sunday followed
with a carnival, cake walk, dunk
tank (Janet watched several get
dunked), plus many other things.
Dorothy Louder, Brad and Kevin
and Nelva and Janet Louder
were there. Also saw Fred
Koester and two daughters there
with dad/grandpa Melford. Mary
Ellen Herbaugh also had family
with her. It was a nice day. Later
Nelva and Janet visited Deanna
Byrd and the Stones. When
Nelva and Janet went to Kadoka
the traffic heading east was hor-
rendous. It really slowed down by
the time they came home. Isn’t it
something how green the hills
are for August? They came home
on the old highway and stopped
at a high spot looking south.
They could see forever and all so
green – very pretty.
A baby shower was held Sun-
day afternoon at the Murdo
Catholic church basement for
Beth Van Dam and baby Max,
hosted by Lenae Tucker, Katie
Venard, Katie Van Dam, Kayla
Venard and Chance Prince.
Among the many attending were:
Grandma Jill Venard, Great-
grandma Kim Calkins, Terri and
Tana Volmer, Wanda Mathews,
Jean Iwan, Cathy Horsley and
Shelby, Kati Venard and girls,
and Jill Rankin.
Later Jill Rankin joined kids
Riley and Peyton at the pool
party. There were games and a
lunch of hot dogs, chips and
drinks furnished by Modern
Woodmen. It was a fun time.
Following church Sunday Alice
Horsley, Pastor and Jane Hazen,
Rosa Lee Styles and Lila Mae
Christian had dinner together in
Robby and Penny Louder
returned back to mom Helen’s on
Friday after spending time in
Sturgis. Monday the trio went to
Pierre where Helen kept an
appointment. Later they ran into
Marvin Buxcel and had a good
visit. They stopped at the hospi-
tal and called on Pal Jessop of
Presho. He’s got West Nile and is
pretty sick. His daughter, Jackie,
was there with him at the time.
Be sure and use your bug spray!
Janet Louder got in a brief
chat with former Draperites,
Don, Elaine and Ron Miller of
Rapid City and Faulkton, at the
funeral the other day. She also
saw Patti and Wade Dowling of
Spearfish; Don Cromwell, Chuck
and Sharon Pietrus and Willard
and Florence Christian from
Pierre; and Jeri Dowling Hodder
and friend from Black Hawk. The
Nies’ were well represented:
Janet’s classmate, Gary and
Charlene Nies of Martin; David
Nies of Presho; Mary Lou Hau-
gaard of Renner; Doug and Jack-
ie; and Ted and Bev were all
present. Gary, Charlene and
Mary Lou visited at Ted and
Bev’s later. There were so many
more, but these were some Janet
saw or chatted with from out of
Ray and Janice Pike left on
Sunday for Belle Fourche and
spent the night there. On Mon-
day they attended the memorial
service for cousin Joan’s hus-
band, Jim Jordan of Nisland. The
service was held at the Funeral
Home of the Northern Hills, fol-
lowed with a lunch and a time of
fellowship. Nine colorguard
motorcyclists led the procession
to the Black Hills National
Cemetery for the inurnment. Our
sympathy to the family.

Cursed Is Every One!
by Pastor Ricky Kurth
The Law curses “every one that continueth not in all things… of the law” (Gal. 3:10). The words “continueth” and “all” here tell us the Law demands
100% faithfulness 100% of the time! Though this may sound unreasonable, how many of our married readers are satisfied with 99% faithfulness from your
spouse? Even if you could go 70 years without sinning, then sin, the Law would curse you. This too might sound unreasonable, but if you go 70 years
without killing anyone, then snap, the law won’t let you slide just because you’ve never done it before, and neither will God!
“But that no man is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident” (Gal. 3:11). The Greek word for “evident” here is translated “certain” when
Paul says, “we brought nothing into this world, and it is certain that we can carry nothing out” (I Tim. 6:7). You’ll never see a U-Haul trailer behind a
hearse! And it is just as evident that no one can be justified by the Law. You might look good in your neighbor’s sight, but we’re talking about “the sight
of God” (Gal. 3:11). Even Abraham looked good to his neighbors, but he couldn’t boast before God (Rom. 4:2), for God knew he lied about his wife.
No, “The just shall live by faith” (Gal. 3:11), that is, the way you get to be just is by faith. “And the law is not of faith: but, The man that doeth them
shall live in them” (Gal. 3:12), i.e., live eternally (Lev. 18:5 cf. Luke 10:25-28). God is fair. If you could obey Him perfectly, He would give you eternal
life. It is not technically correct to say the only way to heaven is by faith. But while there are two ways to get to the moon, by rocket and by jumping, one
of these two ways is impossible! Just so, there are two ways to get to heaven, by faith and by the works of the Law (Rom. 2:6-10), but the latter is just as
impossible! (Gal. 2:16).
Thankfully, “Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us” (Gal. 3:13). “That the blessing of Abraham [salvation] might
come on the Gentiles through….” Through what? Through Israel? Through circumcision, or the Law? This was true for Gentiles in the Old Testament. But
today the blessing of Abraham comes on us “through Jesus Christ.” Why not “believe on the Lord Jesus Christ, and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).
Notice it doesn’t say “believe and be good.” It just says believe and be saved! “Christ died for our sins…and…rose again” (I Cor. 15:3,4). Don’t try to add
any good works to Christ’s work, for salvation is “to him that worketh not, but believeth!” (Rom. 4:5).

Gleanings from the prairie
•Pastor Alvin L. Gwin Community Bible Church, Murdo•
Here’s a simple and encourag-
ing poem that has been shared
among friends for quite some
“Yesterday God helped me,
Today He’ll do the same.
How long will this continue?
Forever --- praise His name!”
This is truly encouraging!
However, to really know the
truth of this poem in the experi-
ences of life, one must know the
GOD Who is the helper.
The Bible, GOD’s Word to man,
is a great source of help from
GOD. It gives a record of the
faithfulness of God to the men
and women who have put their
trust in Him. Take for example,
the shepherd-king, David. He
wrote in Psalm 54:4, “Behold,
GOD is my helper.”
It was pointed out to me many
years ago that during a most dif-
ficult time in David’s life, a time
when everything seemed to be
going against him -- and it really
was (we never have times like
that, do we?); that David “encour-
aged himself in the LORD his
GOD” (I Samuel 30:6).
How did David do that? It was
during these times of trials, diffi-
culties, and exasperating circum-
stances that David is seen put-
ting his thoughts in written form
so that we can know how he
encouraged himself in the LORD.
Here are some of his thoughts
that bear witness to the truth
that GOD was “helping” him.
Psalm 18:6 – “In my distress I
called upon the LORD, and cried
unto my GOD; he heard my voice
out of His temple, and my cry
came before Him, even into His
Psalm 25:1-2 – “Unto You, O
LORD, do I lift up my soul. O my
GOD, I trust in You; let me not be
ashamed, let not my enemies tri-
umph over me.”
Psalm 34:1-8 – “I will bless the
LORD at all times; His praise
shall continually be in my mouth.
My soul shall make her boast in
the LORD; the humble shall hear
of it, and be glad. Oh, magnify
the LORD with me, and let us
exalt His Name together. I
sought the LORD, and he heard
me, and delivered me from all my
fears. They looked unto Him, and
were radiant, and their faces
were not ashamed. This poor
man cried, and the LORD heard
him, and saved him out of all his
troubles. The angel of the LORD
encamps round about those who
fear Him, and delivers them. Oh,
taste and see that the LORD is
good; blessed is the man who
trusts in Him.”
Psalm 40:1-5 – “I waited
patiently for the LORD, and He
inclined unto me, and heard my
cry. He brought me up also out of
an horrible pit, out of the miry
clay, and set my feet upon a rock,
and established my goings. And
He has put a new song in my
mouth, even praise unto out
GOD; many shall see it, and fear,
and shall trust in the LORD.
Blessed is that man who makes
the LORD his trust, and respects
not the proud, nor such as turn
aside. Many, O LORD, my GOD,
are Your wonderful works which
You have done, and Your
thoughts which are toward us;
they cannot be reckoned up in
order unto You. If I would declare
and speak of them, they are more
than can be numbered.”
Psalm 56:1-4 – “Be merciful
unto me, O GOD; for man would
swallow me up; he, fighting daily,
oppresses me. My enemies would
daily swallow me up; for they are
many that fight against me, O
You Most High. When I am
afraid, I will trust in You. In GOD
I will praise His word, in GOD I
have put my trust; I will not fear
what flesh can do to me.”
It becomes apparent that
David knew his LORD. Remem-
ber, it was David who wrote the
23rd Psalm, “The LORD is my
Shepherd, I shall not want.”
David knew GOD as his helper
in times of trouble. Who do you
turn to? In whom do you trust?
Where do you go to get strength
for the journey of life?
For the “child of GOD” by faith
in JESUS CHRIST, our Heavenly
FATHER cares for us. It is
because of HIS grace that we
have been saved. GOD has
poured out upon us the riches of
HIS grace and HIS love. We
belong to HIM, and HE will
never let us down. GOD’s care for
HIS own is not an occasional
thing; it is constant. HE is con-
stantly walking with us and
watching over us. When we go
through the fire, HE is there, as
HE was with the three Hebrew
children in Babylon. When we go
through the waters, HE is there,
as HE was with the disciples in
that storm on the Sea of Galilee.
Yes, even when we go through
the valley of the shadow of death,
HE will be with us!
“I will never leave you nor for-
sake you!” is HIS promise, and
that promise is sure. So, remem-
“Yesterday, GOD helped me,
Today He’ll do the same.
How long will this continue?
Forever – praise His Name!”

Thelma Rada
Thelma Rada, age 97, of White
River, South Dakota, died Monday,
August 5, 2013, at the Coteau des
Prairies Hospital in Sisseton.
Thelma Marguerite Crume was
born March 29, 1916 in Mylo,
(Rolette County) North Dakota to
John and Hazel (Pickett) Crume.
On August 5, 2013 she rode home,
on horseback no doubt.
In October 1919 Thelma, with
her parents and her sister, Viola,
left Mylo, North Dakota for White
River, South Dakota in a wagon.
She could even recall a few inci-
dents that happened during that
almost year long trip.
Thelma was united in marriage
to Roy (Swede) Rada on June 26,
1937 in Murdo, S.D. They settled
on a ranch northwest of White
River. To this union four children
were born: Curtis, Shawn, Melvin
and Cleone.
Swede passed away in 1977.
Thelma moved into White River in
1992, then to Murdo, in 2003 and
in September, 2012 she moved to a
care center in Rosholt, S.D., where
her granddaughter, Tina, was
Thelma loved to be on the back
of a horse riding and checking cat-
tle. She even rode one this past
July. She never turned down an
offer to ride a horse.
Thelma and Swede raised and
broke Appaloosa horses, raised
Hereford cattle and worked with
4-H clubs on their horse projects.
Thelma also worked for a time in
the lunchroom at the White River
School and at the White River
Nursing Home. She belonged to
Cottonwood Ladies Aid, Riverview
Ext. Club and the Rebekah Lodge.
She read the Bible, would do any-
thing for a friend and believed that
if God kept you here you better
make yourself useful.
During her life, Thelma got to
go on a trip of a lifetime to visit
Mike and Cleone’s former
exchange students from Germany
and Denmark and meet their fam-
ilies. The exchange students
became her grandkids too. Blood
never mattered to her, her heart
was big enough for many children.
She was “Grandma” to all who
knew her.
In the early years, Thelma and
Swede always had family around,
especially on Sundays. Thelma
was known for her ability to whip
up a meal for everyone in no time.
A few of their nieces and nephews
also lived with them while they
were growing up and summers
were like Grand Central Station.
She was known for her “pranks”
that she loved to pull on people

The Murdo Coyote
Murdo Coyote • August 15, 2013 • 4
more eggs in a year than most
chickens. The hype in the poultry
catalog got me. Only later did I
find out that these nutty birds are
wild as the dickens. When I
walked into the chicken house,
they’d all, as a group, race across
the floor and crash themselves
into the back wall. This raised a
lot of dust and upset the chickens.
What’s more, although they did
lay very well, their eggs were no
tastier than their meat. The eggs
were very solid so you had to work
awfully hard at scrambling them.
Using them in a cake or some-
thing was tricky as well. All in all,
raising them was not a worth-
while adventure, but it taught me
several things. Do not believe a
salesman’s hype, for one thing,
and secondly, “Do not raise
ducks.” I have also raised Pekin
and Muscovy ducks, I might add,
and, although they are less frus-
trating than Khaki Campbells,
they aren’t of much more use.
By the way, you really shouldn’t
bother with geese either. Your wife
will get attached to them so you
can never eat them. They will just
be around forever, and the gander
will occasionally sneak up behind
you and bite you on the rear when
he’s protecting his lady or ladies.
I do like eating geese better than
ducks, but raising either is still a
fairly useless endeavor. Plucking
either is the pits.
Neither is it worth your time to
raise rabbits or chinchillas. Rab-
bits are actually quite good to eat
and similar to chicken, but chin-
chillas are absolutely hopeless all
the way around. What’s more,
rabbits are hard to raise in a cli-
mate that gets both too hot and
too cold for them. I can’t recom-
mend either bunnies or chin-
But you know what, I find in
looking through poultry catalogs
that I have never raised any
guineas. They say they are good at
keeping wood ticks under control
since they like to eat them. They
also warn you when intruders are
around. Other people have them
and seem to like them although
they often say they are quite
noisy. I wonder if we should give
them a try and see how they work
out. Oh, well. Maybe not. If I want
poultry around, I’d better stick to
chickens, if I can just manage to
keep them from digging holes all
around the lilacs and other shrub-
bery. Still, chickens and I general-
ly get along just fine despite the
fact that the word “chicken” isn’t
nearly as neat as the word “duck.”
“What kind of bird is that?” wife
Corinne might inquire. If I don’t
know and despite the fact that it’s
sitting in a tree, I’m apt to reply,
“It’s probably some kind of duck.”
Corinne knows by now that this
preposterous statement simply
means I don’t know although she
might give me a look of scorn any-
way. Well, there is a specie of said
waterfowl called a “wood duck”
that does actually nest in trees. I
have never actually seen one, but
there is such a bird although the
trees where they hatch their
young are usually next to bodies
of water. Wood ducks are about
the only ones that do frequent
trees because they, unlike most
others, have claws that allow
them to get a grip on wood. Other-
wise, webbed feet and trees don’t
go that well together.
Actually, I mostly use the word
“duck” as often as possible
because the word amuses me
somehow. Unfortunately, it’s hard
to incorporate it into normal con-
versations so you have to work
pretty hard at sneaking it in, thus
the above statement, “It’s proba-
bly some kind of a duck.” Of
course, if someone asks you how
you are, you can reply, “Just
ducky,” which I do from time to
time. Other than that, possible
uses of the word are somewhat
limited except as sharp com-
mands to dodge low-flying objects.
There are other favorite words as
well that are difficult to use very
much such as “shrubbery.” I’m
able to work them in occasionally
but all too infrequently.
Anyway, back to ducks. They are
amusing critters for the most part
since they are so awkward and
somewhat silly looking when
they’re waddling around on land.
Put them in water, though, and
they’re really quite graceful. I
have found through experience,
however, that their husbandry is
not all that enjoyable. For one
thing, if you put them in the
chicken house in the winter, they
make an awful mess with water.
You’re likely to have an ice field
around the waterer before spring.
Secondly, the meat from most
waterfowl is not that great. If you
roast a duck, you get a large pool
of fat, lots of skin, and a little
greasy meat that isn’t all that
good. Other people find them
tasty, I guess, but they aren’t a
favorite of mine.
Nevertheless, one year I ordered
quite a number of Khaki Camp-
bell Ducks. These are smallish,
walk somewhat upright, and lay

HUD awards South Dakota
Housing Authorities $1,565,032
South Dakota Housing Authorities funding
U.S. Department of Housing
and Urban Development Secre-
tary Shaun Donovan today
awarded public housing authori-
ties in South Dakota $1,565,032
that will be used to make major
large-scale improvements to their
public housing units.
The housing authorities in
South Dakota listed in the accom-
panying chart will receive this
The grants announced are pro-
vided through HUD’s Capital
Fund Program, which provides
funding annually to all public
housing authorities to build,
repair, renovate and/or modernize
the public housing in their com-
munities. The authorities use the
funding to do large-scale improve-
ments to the housing such as new
roofs or to make energy-efficient
upgrades to replace old plumbing
and electrical systems.
“This funding is critical for
housing authorities to maintain
and improve public housing con-
ditions for their residents,” said
Donovan. “However, with a sig-
nificant repair backlog, I am
encouraged by new, innovative
long-term solutions HUD is
exploring that can be combined
with this funding to not only pro-
tect and preserve this housing for
the next generation, but to also
build the quality infrastructure
necessary for families to thrive.”
“Housing authorities in South
Dakota count on this funding to
maintain and improve their pub-
lic housing for many families,
especially the most vulnerable –
our seniors,” said Rocky Moun-
tain Regional Administrator Rick
M. Garcia. “HUD is currently tak-
ing bold steps to preserve this
affordable housing.”
Capital Fund grants are
awarded each year to the nation’s
approximately 3,100 public hous-
ing agencies through a formula
that considers number, type and
age of units in a community. Eli-
gible uses for this funding include
development, financing and mod-
ernization of the public housing
units as well as management
improvements at the public hous-
ing authority.
Over the past 75 years, the fed-
eral government has been work-
ing and investing billions of dol-
lars in developing and maintain-
ing public and multifamily hous-
ing – including providing critical
support through the Capital
Fund grants announced today.
Still, the nation continues to lose
approximately 10,000 public
housing units annually, primarily
due to disrepair. In 2011, HUD
released Capital Needs in the
Public Housing Program, a study
that estimated the capital needs
in the public housing stock in the
U.S. The study found the nation’s
1.2 million public housing units
are facing an estimated $25.6 bil-
lion in large-scale repairs. Unlike
routine maintenance, capital
needs are extensive improve-
ments required to make the hous-
ing decent and economically sus-
tainable, such as replacing roofs
or updating plumbing and electri-
cal systems to increase energy
To help protect the consider-
able federal investment and
respond to the growing demand
for affordable rental housing, the
Obama Administration proposed
the Rental Assistance Demon-
stration (RAD), a comprehensive
strategy that complements the
Capital Fund Program and offers
a long-term solution to preserve
and enhance the country’s afford-
able housing stock, including
leveraging public and private
funding to make critically needed
Since Congress approved the
demonstration, early results
show it is already generating
additional capital for public and
assisted housing. After opening
RAD application periods last
summer, HUD has approved or
given initial approval to nearly
20,000 public and assisted hous-
ing units in 180 different projects
across the country. Through
these awards, housing authorities
have proposed to generate close to
$816 million in private debt and
equity investments to reduce the
capital backlog in public housing
properties, which will preserve or
replace distressed units and sup-
port local jobs in their communi-
ties – all without additional fed-
eral resources.
HUD also recently issued new
RAD guidance that expands the
program’s flexibility that will
benefit current and future appli-
cants and participants.

Murdo Coyote • August 15, 2013 • 5
Through my years of practicing
medicine, I have come to view
dieting as a Sisyphean task. The
gist of the Greek myth of King
Sisyphus was that he was a very
deceitful and immoral king in
Greek history. The Greek king of
Gods, Zeus, condemned King
Sisyphus to the task of rolling a
stone up a hill each day only to
watch the stone roll back to the
bottom of the hill by the following
morning. At that point Sisyphus
would again have to begin rolling
the stone up the hill. Sisyphean
thus came to mean a pointless
repetitive task that never ended
and was unsuccessful. Such is
dieting. With the overweight epi-
demic that has engulfed our coun-
try at this time, dieting is indeed
a Sisyphean task.
The word diet might be defined
in two different ways. The com-
mon way it is used in American
jargon means that a diet is “an
abnormal way to eat.” In other
words, the person is going to
change what and how they nor-
mally eat into something that
they do not normally eat, being it
more or less or a different con-
tent. But the problem with this is
that no one is going to eat abnor-
mally for very long and soon the
old normal eating habit resumes
and the same problem persists.
But another way to define a
diet has to do with a characteris-
tic eating pattern that a given
group of individuals commonly
practice. Examples include the
“Mediterranean diet.” This refers
to the eating pattern with an
emphasis on olive oil, wine, nuts,
and vegetables commonly prac-
ticed in the Mediterranean coun-
tries. This dietary pattern has
been associated with a decreased
incidence of vascular disease.
Another example of the same
phenomena would be the “Inuit
diet” practiced by the Eskimos in
Alaska and Greenland. The Eski-
mos normally eat large amounts
of whale or seal blubber and char-
acteristically can have serum cho-
lesterol of 2000 mg percent; nor-
mal cholesterol is less than 200
mg percent. Yet, they have a very
low incidence of vascular disease.
That is attributed to the high con-
centration of omega-3 fatty acids
in their diet.
I am not so naïve as to believe
that anybody is going to take up
eating whale blubber in order to
prevent their heart attack. And to
this time, there are no studies to
demonstrate converting to the
Mediterranean diet is associated
with a decreased incidence of
heart attack or stroke. Rather,
recognize that the benefit of the
Mediterranean diet comes to
those who have naturally
acquired that diet throughout
their life. Converting to it later in
life does not seem to carry much
life-saving effect.
Which brings me to the antiox-
idant question. Anybody that
watches television or reads a
magazine or newspaper now
knows that there is no shortage of
claims being made for antioxi-
dants and the benefits that these
bring to the human body. The the-
ory behind the antioxidant bene-
fit makes perfect sense but to this
time, there isn’t a particle of evi-
dence demonstrating that con-
suming antioxidants as a pill has
even a thread of life-saving effect.
The best example of this was
the vitamin E story in which it
was shown to have very potent
antioxidant effects in a test tube.
From the 1960s on, vitamin E
was said as to having life-saving
effects. Yet when controlled stud-
ies were done supplementing
vitamin E in various forms and at
various doses to given popula-
tions, there was no demonstrated
life-saving effect.
But this has not slowed down
the “snake oil salesmen” out there
pushing antioxidants of all man-
ner and dose. However, in defense
of the antioxidant theory, an arti-
cle appeared in the American
Journal of Medicine this summer
that analyzed the antioxidant
consumption among 33,713
Swedish women. These women
all completed a food question-
naire in 1990, again in 1997, and
yet again in December of 2009.
The information sought in these
questionnaires was what these
women normally ate. Through a
herculean effort and use of huge
computers, the researchers were
able to assign an antioxidant
intake from the diet of these
33,713 individuals.
The researchers then ranked
antioxidant intake of these
women, divided them into five
groups each with an increasing
dose of antioxidant intake. The
question they looked for had to do
with whether or not antioxidants
had anything to do with preven-
tion of heart failure. The answer
was very clear. Those women
whose diets naturally were high-
er in antioxidant content had a
very substantial decrease in the
incidence of heart failure. Note,
this is the first publication of any
kind demonstrating a health-pro-
tective effect of antioxidants in
the diet.
But please note this study had
to do with the women’s natural
dietary intake of antioxidants
over 20 years. It does not suggest
in any way that supplementing
antioxidants sold by hucksters on
TV had any life-saving or benefi-
cial effect.
The lesson from this article is
one that is obvious from many
past years. Specifically, a natural-
ly healthy life style prevents
some diseases. The use of a
dietary supplement used long
enough and a high enough dose
may be some help but for antioxi-
dants that is not shown at this
Incidentally in the same issue
of the American Journal of Medi-
cine, an article was directed to
the use of vitamin D-3. A normal
vitamin D-3 level in blood is
about 30 ng/ml. The article in the
American Journal noted that
there is a definite life-saving
effect when Vitamin D-3 levels
are increased above 21 ng/ml.
Note this isn’t even the normal
range but very commonly in the
northern latitudes where there is
less sunshine significant vitamin
D-3 deficiency does occur and
those with the largest blood levels
of Vitamin D-3 do have an
increased mortality. Vitamin sup-
plementation with vitamin D-3 at
2000 units per day is a practice I
In summary, a healthy lifestyle
prevents a lot of diseases. Supple-
menting a person’s diet or med-
ical regiment has evidence based
information indicating that statin
drugs, blood pressure medica-
tions, and vitamin D supplemen-
tation do save lives. The host of
other dietary supplements shown
on TV or at your favorite nutri-
tion store really does not have
evidence based information sug-
gesting that they save lives or
prevent disease. But they do
make money for those selling

Not many recent high school
graduates can say they partici-
pated in a 16-day European tour.
Josh Daum, 2013 Jones Coun-
ty high school graduate, joined
over 170 other student musicians
from high schools representing 67
communities in South Dakota
and Southwest Minnesota. Daum
was recommended to be part of
the choir by high school music
teacher Rose Comp.
America’s Mid-West Ambassa-
dors of Music Symphonic Band
and Concert Choir 2013 Tour took
students to six European coun-
tries including Great Britain,
France, Switzerland, Lichten-
stein, Austria, Italy and Ger-
In addition to performing in
each of the six countries, Daum
and the other students also had
the privilege of touring and sight-
seeing, making the trip one to
Choir performances included
arrangements such as: Blessed
Be The Name Of The Lord; Agnus
Dei; Go Where I Send Thee!;
When The Saints Go Marching
In; In Remembrance; Requiem;
Lead Me Lord; and Ipharadisi.
The group performed a home
concert on June 26 in the Per-
forming Arts Center on the South
Dakota State University Campus
before departing for London on
June 27.
London included famous sights
such as St. Paul’s Cathedral, the
Tower of London and the Crown
Jewels, Buckingham Palace and
Westminster Abbey. The choir
performed June 30 at Wesley’s
July 1 took them to Paris via a
ferry-crossing of the English
Channel and two days of touring
with a performance July 2.
Daum’s favorite part of the trip
was being in Switzerland, where
the group spent three days taking
in the Alps and a trip to the his-
toric Castle of Chillon.
They next traveled to Liechten-
stein then Seefeld Austria for a
performance on July 8. From
Seefeld, the group traveled to
Venice for a day, then on to
Rothenburg, Germany for the
final three days and one last per-
formance on July 11 before leav-
ing for home July 12.

Winter wheat planting is around
the corner. Good practices increase
the odds for success.
Choose one or more varieties
with good agronomic characteris-
tics, recommended for your area,
and on average, performed well in
locations near your farm in the
last few years.
When possible, direct seed into
standing stubble. Standing stub-
ble traps snow that insulates
wheat seedlings against cold tem-
peratures, reducing risk of win-
terkill. Seeding into broadleaf crop
stubble reduces the risk of insect,
disease and weed problems. Seed-
ing into wheat stubble is common,
but increases the risk of residue-
borne diseases. Seeding wheat into
corn, wheat, sorghum or millet
residue increases the risk of scab
(Fusarium Head Blight). If plant-
ing winter wheat into fallow, mini-
mize the number of tillage opera-
tions just before planting. Plowing
and other deep tillage operations
can reduce seedbed firmness, dry
the topsoil and bury protective
residues, increasing the risk of
winter kill.
Control weeds early. Controlling
grassy weeds and volunteer wheat
two weeks prior to planting winter
wheat will provide a break in the
life cycle of the wheat curl mite
and help to control wheat streak
mosaic virus. Preventing annual
weeds from producing seed will
help reduce weed problems in the
planted crop. Prior to planting
winter wheat is also a good time to
control perennial weeds and
reduce competition from them in
the following season.
The recommended time to plant
winter wheat in South Dakota is
Sept. 15 through Oct. 10. Wheat
plants should be well established
before freezing to attain maximum
cold tolerance and accumulate
enough energy reserves for the fol-
lowing spring. Planting too early
may produce excessive fall growth,
reducing amounts of soil moisture
and nutrients. Early planted
wheat is vulnerable to infestations
of wheat curl mites that transmit
wheat streak mosaic virus and
also increases the risk of root and
crown rot diseases. Research from
western South Dakota has shown
that grain yield is decreased and
the crop can suffer substantial
winter injury when planting later
than Oct. 15.
Plant winter wheat at a depth of
1.5 to 2 inches in a firm seedbed.
Planting deeper than 2 inches
reduces emergence and can result
in weak spindly seedlings with
poor ability to survive the winter.
If it is necessary to plant deeper to
get to moisture, growers should
choose a variety with a longer
coleoptile (see Table 3 of “2010
Winter Wheat Variety Yield
Results and Planting Tips”:
8136-10.pdf). Make sure there is
good soil-to-seed contact, especial-
ly under drier conditions. If soil
cover over the seed is poor there is
risk of exposing the crown and
adversely affecting winter sur-
The recommended seeding rate
is 22 pure live seeds per square
foot (approximately 960,000
seeds/acre, depending on seed
size). If you have a poor seedbed or
are planting later than the recom-
mended dates, increase seeding
rate to 28 pure-live-seeds per
square foot. Properly managed
winter wheat does have the ability
to tiller and can compensate for
thin stands.
Test soils and apply fertilizer
based on soil test results and yield
goals. Research has shown that
adequate phosphorus helps winter
survival by stimulating root
growth and tillering in the fall. If
soil test results indicate low phos-
phorus levels, apply the recom-
mended rate.

planting tips
Risk management strategies for farmers
By Jeff Elliott, Chief Finan-
cial Officer, MachineryLink,
Most would agree that farm-
ing, by its nature, is filled with
risk. Whether growing soybeans
or wheat, farming 500 acres or
5,000, growers face risk and wor-
ries around weather, input costs,
yields, market demand, and
volatile grain prices -- just a few
of many factors creating risk
within farming.
There is no way to completely
eliminate risk, but there are
strategies to manage it. Our dis-
cussions with growers center
around three risk management
•Financial Management
•Information Resources
•Marketing and Pricing
Financial Management
Financial risk management
entails many aspects of a grow-
er’s financial statements:
debt/equity ratio, cash position,
and access to capital, especially
during the inevitable down years.
Here are some strategies to con-
sider in overall risk planning:
•Holding sufficient cash
reserves for protection against
adverse conditions.
•Investing capital in areas
bringing the most benefit, such as
land and appreciating assets.
•Detailed planning for longer-
term capital expenditures that
support the operation. Growers
must know how to align capital
investment with alternative sce-
narios of forward-looking income
•Unlocking capital and avoid-
ing investment in depreciating
assets by renting lightly-utilized
or infrequently-used major equip-
We ask farmers “what are your
priorities for cash or capital?”
Why? The list price of a new com-
bine can range from $280,000 for
a basic machine to over half-a-
million for a fully-loaded
machine. If you’re not properly
prepared for initial and ongoing
ownership costs, they can quickly
erode your capital position and
reserves. Although a combine
purchase can be the right deci-
sion for some, a rental agreement
can be more economical and frees
up capital. Overall, when evalu-
ating large expenditures, consid-
er your operations, output, plans,
crop potential and cash position
to determine where dollars are
best allocated.
Information Resources
We speak with customers
about a “smarter harvest,” or
leveraging the technology and
data resources available to them.
Growers have multiple resources
– USDA reports, weather infor-
mation, market pricing, and
much more. Taking into account
your crops, farm size, production
capabilities, and other opera-
tional factors, consider first what
types of information will help you
farm more effectively. That will
guide you to the right solution –
information sources to help drive
informed decisions that preserve
or improve your profitability and
Marketing and Pricing
Two marketing/pricing strate-
gies are hedging, allowing a
farmer to determine the current
price for which he will sell his
crop at a future date (providing a
relief from volatile pricing), and
contracting, in which markets,
pricing or other terms are guar-
anteed in advance. Both are
viable risk management strate-
gies; however, before executing on
any marketing or pricing strate-
gy, fully understand all options,
then use the best information
available to maximize your prof-
At its core, farming can be a
continual risk/reward see-saw.
Understanding and executing
smart risk management strate-
gies helps keep the balance in
your favor.

Family Educational
Rights and Privacy
Directory Information
The Family Educational Rights and Pri-
vacy Act (FERPA), a Federal law,
requires that Jones County School Dis-
trict, with certain exceptions, obtain your
written consent prior to the disclosure of
personally identifiable information from
your child's education records. However,
Jones County School District may dis-
close appropriately designated "directory
information" without written consent,
unless you have advised the District to
the contrary in accordance with District
procedures. The primary purpose of
directory information is to allow the
Jones County School District to include
this type of information from your child's
education records in certain school pub-
lications. Examples include:
•A playbill, showing your student's role in
a drama production;
•The annual yearbook;
•Honor roll or other recognition lists;
•Graduation programs; and
•Sports activity sheets, such as for
wrestling, showing weight and height of
team members.
Directory information, which is informa-
tion that is generally not considered
harmful or an invasion of privacy if
released, can also be disclosed to out-
side organizations without a parent's
prior written consent. Outside organiza-
tions include, but are not limited to, com-
panies that manufacture class rings or
publish yearbooks. In addition, two fed-
eral laws require local educational agen-
cies (LEAs) receiving assistance under
the Elementary and Secondary Educa-
tion Act of 1965 (ESEA) to provide mili-
tary recruiters, upon request, with three
directory information categories—
names, addresses and telephone list-
ings—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 Jones County
School District to disclose directory
information from your child's education
records without your prior written con-
sent, you must notify the District in writ-
ing by September 16, 2013. Jones
County School District has designated
the following information as directory
•Student's name
•Telephone listing
•Electronic mail address
•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
•The most recent educational agency
or institution attended
•Student ID number, user ID, or other
unique personal identifier used to

Notification of Rights
Elementary and Secondary Schools
The Family Educational Rights and Pri-
vacy 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 stu-
dent'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 arrange-
ments 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 spec-
ify why it should be changed. If
the School decides not to
amend the record as request-
ed by the parent or eligible stu-
dent, 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 infor-
mation regarding the hearing
procedures will be provided to
the parent or eligible student
when notified of the right to a

able information in the student's educa-
tion records, except to the extent that
FERPA authorizes disclosure without
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 sup-
port 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 out-

it would otherwise use its own
employees to perform (such
as an attorney, auditor, med-
ical consultant, or therapist); a
parent or student serving on
an official committee, such as
a disciplinary or grievance
committee; or a parent, stu-
dent, or other volunteer assist-
ing another school official in
performing his or her tasks.
A school official has a legiti-
mate educational interest if the
official needs to review an
education record in order to
fulfill his or her professional

PPRA affords parents certain rights
regarding our conduct of surveys, collec-
tion and use of information for marketing
purposes, and certain physical exams.
These include the right to:
• Consent before students are required
to submit to a survey that concerns one
or more of the following protected areas
(“protected information survey”) if the
survey is funded in whole or in part by a
program of the U.S. Department of Edu-
cation (ED)–

student or student’s parent;
2. Mental or psychological problems of
the student or student’s family;
3. Sex behavior or attitudes;
4. Illegal, anti-social, self-incriminating,
or demeaning behavior;
5. Critical appraisals of others with whom
respondents have close family relation-
6. Legally recognized privileged relation-
ships, such as with lawyers, doctors, or
7. Religious practices, affiliations, or
beliefs of the student or parents; or
8. Income, other than as required by law
to determine program eligibility.
•Receive notice and an opportunity to opt
a student out of –
1. Any other protected information sur-
vey, regardless of funding;
2. Any non-emergency, invasive physical
exam or screening required as a condi-
tion of attendance, administered by the
school or its agent, and not necessary to
protect the immediate health and safety
of a student, except for hearing, vision,
or scoliosis screenings, or any physical
exam or screening permitted or required
under State law; and
3. Activities involving collection, disclo-
sure, or use of personal information
obtained from students for marketing or
to sell or otherwise distribute the infor-
mation to others.
•Inspect, upon request and before
administration or use –
1. Protected information surveys of stu-
2. Instruments used to collect personal
information from students for any of the
above marketing, sales, or other distribu-
tion purposes; and
3. Instructional material used as part of
the educational curriculum.
These rights transfer from the parents to
a student who is 18 years old or an
emancipated minor under State law.
Jones County School District will
develop and adopt policies, in consulta-
tion with parents, regarding these rights,
as well as arrangements to protect stu-
dent privacy in the administration of pro-
tected information surveys and the col-
lection, disclosure, or use of personal
information for marketing, sales, or other
distribution purposes. Jones County
School District will directly notify par-
ents of these policies at least annually at
the start of each school year and after
any substantive changes. Jones Coun-
ty School District will also directly noti-
fy, such as through U.S. Mail or email,
parents of students who are scheduled
to participate in the specific activities or
surveys noted below and will provide an
opportunity for the parent to opt his or
her child out of participation of the specif-
ic activity or survey. Jones County
School District will make this notifica-
tion to parents at the beginning of the
school year if the District has identified
the specific or approximate dates of the
activities or surveys at that time. For sur-
veys and activities scheduled after the
school year starts, parents will be provid-
ed reasonable notification of the planned
activities and surveys listed below and
be provided an opportunity to opt their
child out of such activities and surveys.
