Harold Thune Auditorium floor resurfaced
The Harold Thune Auditorium received an updated floor during the sum-
mer and was finished in time for school to start. In the picture above, the
floor was sanded down to remove the existing paint.
After the sealing coat dried, stencils were applied to the floor so the floor
could be painted.
The new paint job was finished in time for volleyball to start. The next home
volleyball game is a junior high match on Thursday, September 5 against
Lyman at 5:30. Support your local athletics and view the new floor!
After the floor was completely sanded, a sealing coat was applied to the floor in preparation for new paint. The
floor will feature the court’s new name: Jerald Applebee Court. The court was renamed in a dedication ceremo-
ny during the 2012 Jones County Invitational Tournament. At that time, the auditorium was named the Harold
Thune Auditorium.

Step Forward to Prevent Suicide
event to be held September 7
by Karlee Moore
Over 100 people in South
Dakota take their lives each year,
leaving their family and friends
behind to deal with the loss. On
Saturday, September 7, St.
Mary’s Foundation, in partner-
ship with the Helpline Center in
Sioux Falls, will give the people
affected by suicide (survivors of
suicide) a chance to come togeth-
er and remember their loved
The 2013 Step Forward to Pre-
vent Suicide Walk/Run gives any-
one who has lost someone to sui-
cide a chance to be with others, to
be uplifted and to receive hope. It
is an opportunity for survivors of
suicide to be with others who
understand and realize they are
not alone. By stepping forward
and walking as a community we
are bringing awareness to sui-
South Dakota is ranked second
in the nation for suicide comple-
tion rates among teens and young
adults. Reports from the South
Dakota Department of Health
show that 125 South Dakotans
completed suicide in 2011.
Julie Moore, chair of the walk,
says that the walk is a reminder
that suicide continues to be a
problem in South Dakota and we
need to do all we can to educate
and prevent suicide so that it is
not an option for our loved ones.
Prior to the walk, Val Marso,
co-chair, will share her story
about losing her brother
Jonathan Fanger three years ago
to suicide. It is important to Val to
share her story with others so
they know that there is hope and
“I want people to know that
they are not alone” says Marso.
“It is so important for people who
have experienced the effects of a
suicide to visually see all of the
support they have by the number
of people attending the walk, and
also gather with people who have
dealt with similar issues and heal
After the walk Jeff Adel from
the Onida, Agar, and Gettysburg
Methodist church will give a mes-
sage of healing, followed by a bal-
loon release.
Moore said she encourages
members of the community to
attend and show their support
even if they haven’t lost anyone to
suicide. “We want to show that as
a community, we are united, care
and really want to reach out to
others who are suffering. When
you lose a loved one to suicide you
never get over it, you learn to live
with the loss and adapt, but never
get over that pain. I think suicide
is an issue for us and as commu-
nities in central South Dakota we
all need to join hands and do all
we can to prevent it from happen-
The walk will start at the Cap-
ital Lake Visitor Center with reg-
istration beginning at 8:30 a.m.
The 1.5 mile walk will take par-
ticipants through the gulch. The
5k route will take participants
through the gulch and around our
beautiful state capitol. Those par-
ticipating are encouraged to wear
team T-shirts or carry signs hon-
oring their loved ones. The event
is free and open to anyone.
Immediately following the walk
there will be a picnic in Griffin
Park. Hot dogs and hamburgers
will be provided, bring a side dish
to share. For more information

donate, or form a team, go to

As I was out of town on Mon-
day, August 19, some of the news
is a little old, but better late than
never, right?
On Wednesday, August 14,
Gen Liffengren visited Joyce
Ernst and Alex and Jean Freier
in Pierre. On Sunday, August 18,
Gen and daughter Jodee met
Rita Smithburg of Sturgis and
daughter Joni and Bob Lathum
and family of Sundance, Wyo., in
Rapid City for dinner to celebrate
Rita’s ? birthday. It was a good
birthday as Rita had grandkids
and great grandkids there to help
her celebrate. Happy birthday,
Recent visitors of Sonny and
Evelyn Tornow in Rapid City
were Evelyn’s sister Veny and
Lloyd Thompson of Pierre, who
were overnight guests. On Sun-
day Larry and Susan Tornow
took the group out for dinner and
a time of visiting. Kim Calkins

visited Nelva and Janet Louder
on Friday evening, August 16.
Nelva and Janet Louder left
for Rapid City Sunday morning,
August 18. They met grand-
daughter Calli at the legion
building. She had their work cut
out for them as she had lots of
items to decorate the room for
the surprise 25th anniversary
party for her parents, Don and
Cara Pearson. It looked very
nice. Janet made a miniature
cake like the one from their wed-
ding. There was even napkins
with their names on them from
then, plus the wedding dress and
maid of honor dress were dis-
played along with lots of pic-
tures. They surprised Cara, but
not so sure about Don. He had
been with his dad and brothers
and may have sensed something.
It was fun and a good party. Sup-
per was served followed with
anniversary cake and punch.
Enjoying the day were: the Pear-
son kids, Drew and family, Daw-
son, Calli and fiance Nick and
their daughter Aria; Cara’s
brothers, Brian and Karen, Jay
and son Tyler; our soon to be

ents, Chuck and Carol; his sis,
Karla Mannhalter and Jim

18. There were about 70 people
in attendance. While there
Karla’s brother, Kent, and Jane
McKenny were united in mar-
riage at a beautiful outside wed-
ding in the park. Both their
daughters and their husbands
were their attendants. Word had
been received on Wednesday
before the reunion that their sis-
ter, Trudy Henle, of Gillette,
Wyo., had passed away due to
complications from surgery in
Casper, Wyo. With lots of tears,
hugs, kisses and love, the family
was able to enjoy the next two
days. Memorial services were
held for Truday on Monday,
August 19 in Gillette. Karla and
Jim, along with her brothers and
sisters, attended the memorial
services for Trudy on Monday
and all returned to their respec-
tive homes that evening.

and Tami, Travis and family; for-
mer Draperites Bev and Bob
Drabek; Bobbi (Volmer) and

the pulled pork for Janet and did
a very good job), plus several
friends and coworkers. All in all
it was a very good day.
Jerry and Mickie Esmay of
Stevensville, Mont., stopped in
Draper the other day. They had
been to Minnesota to help their
sister-in-law, Mrs. Don (Sal)
Esmay, celebrate her 93rd birth-
day along with several more fam-
ily members. On their way back
they parked their camper in
Spearfish for the night and met
Roger and Melva Vik at a cafe for
supper and a time of visiting.
Janet heard from Larry and
Dort Koth. They had spent some
time in New Jersey recently
helping Larry and Betty Lou
Jones get their house cleaned up
following Hurricane Sandy. The
Jones were high school teachers
here back when. Dort had a
birthday Saturday and their
anniversary was Sunday. Happy
birthday and happy anniversary.

The Bryan house is getting a
new facelift. Heath and LeRonda
are putting new siding on. It
looks very nice.

it is dry in that area, not the
green we have here.

They got in on helping clean up
the window mess, but also did
some sightseeing as Dan had
never spent any time sightseeing
in S.D. They took in the Pioneer
Auto Museum, 1880 Town and
the Oahe Dam. He enjoyed all of
them and also the beautiful coun-
tryside this year. Pat Shinabarg-
er came from Rapid City on Fri-
day and spent the weekend. She
got some good news on Sunday
morning. Her son, Chris, had
entered the little ‘52’ red Ford
pickup he got from Grandpa Har-
vey in the car show and took first
place. Grandpa refinished it sev-
eral years back but had never
entered it in any shows – know
he was as happy looking down
from heaven as Christopher was
accepting the honors.

A True Veteran
by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Before you have placed your trust in Christ as your Lord and Savior, there is nothing whatever you can do to please God or to gain acceptance with
Him. John 3:35 declares that “the Father loves the Son” and cares what you think about Him and do with Him. This is why Verse 36 goes on to say:
“He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life; and he that believeth not the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abideth on him.”
But once you have received Christ as your Savior and Lord there is much you can do to please God. You can witness to His saving grace, you can please
Him by living a godly life, you can work for Him, you can sacrifice of your means to further His cause, and yes, you can fight for Him. “Fight for Him”
you say? Yes indeed, for this world system, our Adamic natures and Satan and his hosts, are all antagonistic toward the Christ who died for our sins. Satan’s
forces, especially, work behind the scenes to “blind the minds of them that believe not” (II Cor. 4:4). These fallen angels, we read, are “the rulers of the
darkness of this world” (iEph. 6:12).
This is why God urges His children to be “strong in the Lord,” putting on “the whole armor of God,” so as to meet and defeat these evil forces (Vers.
10,11). This is why He puts a sword (“the Word of God”) into our hands and bids us “stand… stand… stand!” (Vers. 11-14).
Ah, but a great veteran, who waged many battles in making Christ known to the lost, gives us an inkling of the thrill that goes with being “a good sol-
dier of Jesus Christ.” In his last words, just before his execution, the Apostle Paul declared triumphantly: “I have fought a good fight!” (II Tim. 4:7). It
was indeed “a good fight” in which he had been engaged, a fight to bring light and salvation and blessing to benighted souls. And the reward:
“Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown” (Ver. 8).
Two minutes with the bible
“Brothers, we do not want you
to be ignorant about those who
fall asleep, or to grieve like the
rest of men, who have no hope.
We believe that Jesus died and
rose again and so we believe that
God will bring with Jesus those
who have fallen asleep in
Him....Therefore encourage each
other with these words.” 1 Thess.
4:13-14, 18
We are to encourage one anoth-
er, that is what the LORD wants
us to do. Encourage. Lift one
another, help, be with them dur-
ing trying times and also being
there during the good times.
Things do get pretty tough when
someone gets sick or goes to the
hospital, along with all the other
things that happen to us in life.
There are extra trips to make,
taking time off from work, trying
to find the time to do extra
things for others. And it is a joy
to do this! It is, when we have
the right frame of mind to
encourage one another. Then as
you encourage them you may
even find yourself being encour-
aged. I have.
I do not know how many hospi-
tal calls I have made to people
who were dying, were very, very
sick. They did more for me than
I thought I did for them as I
shared the Word of God with
them. It is always a joy to see the
faith of a believer and how they
know that the LORD is with them
through all that is going on in
their life.
Yes, they do still worry a little,
but they know that if things do
not work out here they will have
eternal life in heaven where
everything will be perfect..
So we are to encourage and the
Church is to encourage. The thing
is, if we are not in church, how
will we know who to encourage.
We are to encourage everyone.
Really, believers and non believ-
ers. As we encourage one another
we will find that the LORD'S
Church will grow. It will. I see it
happening right now in the 3 con-
gregations that I am serving.
When the congregation gets con-
cerned about others people notice.
We have new faces in church now,
and that is nice to see. They feel
welcome and are glad to be hear-
ing God's Word and being fed the
Bread of Life.
The same can be said of our
town. We need to encourage one
another. We do.
Every business that I go into
that always welcomes me when I
walk through the door. It's nice
when they know your name.
That's a small town and that is
one way businesses encourage
those who come in.
Now how can we who live in a
small town encourage our home-
town businesses? Walk through
their doors. Respond also with a
kind welcome. Encourage them.
“Thanks for being open today!” “
For the products that you do
sell.” Sure beats driving for one,
two or even three hours to find it
someplace else. Then we have
the loss of time and money when
we also consider the cost of fuel.
I try to do most of my shopping
in town. Yes, sometimes you can-
not find what you are looking for
and need to go elsewhere. But I
gladly shop locally, for if we do
not have any businesses, we
probably won”t have any people
and then we probably won”t
have any churches. Then I
would not be here, and I love
being here. So it all goes togeth-
er. Encourage one another...with
Good Words, and thank God all
for all that He is doing through
We pray: Dear LORD Heavenly
Father, we thank You for how you
have encouraged us through
Your Word. As we continue to live
in this world, help us to encour-
age others that they in turn can
also encourage others and so
build up, not only our town, but
also Your Church. In Jesus'
name we pray. Amen.
Encourage one another

ranched and farmed. She gradu-
ated from TF Riggs in 1962 and
enrolled at USD before moving to
California where she lived for
seven years.
In 1972, she moved to Denver
and worked for the Arapahoe
County District Attorney’s office.
She was promoted to the State of
Colorado Department of Social
Services, where she worked until
her retirement in 2004. In 2005,
she returned to Pierre to care for
her mother, Iva.
Community activities were
very important to Donna and she
enjoyed her time spent with her
Book Club, Meals on Wheels,
Domino Club, and was a lifelong
member of the Church of Christ.
She enjoyed volunteering at the
Senior Center preparing taxes
during tax season. Donna was an
excellent cook and enjoyed
potlucks and helping at the Com-

Trudy Mae Henle
A memorial service for Trudy
Mae Henle was held on Monday
August 19, 2013, at Walker
Funeral Home in Gillette,
Wyoming, with Reverend Burry
Bessee of First United Methodist
Church officiating.
Trudy Henle died from compli-
cations of surgery on August 14,
2013, at Mountain View Regional
Hospital in Casper, Wyoming.
Trudy was born to Thomas and
Alice A (Theissen) King, in
Murdo, S.D., on August 3, 1942.
Trudy loved her big family of
which she was number 9 of 12
children. Trudy was a small girl
when her family moved to Stuart,
Neb., where she was raised and
attended school. She graduated
from Stuart High School in May
After graduating from high
school, Trudy moved back to
Murdo and that is where she met,
the love of her life, Dennis Gene
Henle. They were married on
November 10, 1960, in Draper,
S.D. In 1962 Dennis went to work
doing road construction jobs,
which involved moving around
the country, mostly Wyoming and
Colorado, for the next 12 years.
They moved to Gillette, in 1974,
and decided to make this their
permanent home. During most of
the 52 years that they were mar-
ried, Trudy took great pride in
being a homemaker. She sewed
many of the clothes for her chil-
dren as they were growing up.
She was very good at cooking and
baking. She could make a birth-
day cake into almost anything
you wanted.
Trudy also crocheted afghans,
slippers, scarfs and beautiful
doilies. She looked forward to
planting and tending to her gar-
den every summer, as she loved to
preserve and can much of the pro-
duce from the garden. Trudy real-
ly enjoyed going camping, fishing
and hunting. Going on many
hunts throughout the years for
elk, deer and antelope was some-
thing she looked forward to. She
took great pride in processing the
meat that they hunted. She was
always ready to have a fun time
and play some cards with family
and friends.
Trudy loved to read and was
always trying to find someone to
trade books with. She looked for-
ward to the holidays, so she could
spend time with her children,
family and friends.
Trudy is survived by her hus-
band, Dennis G Henle of Gillette;
her daughter, Camela (Cammy)
M Henle (Gregory S Welch) of
Gillette; her sons: Wayne G
(Camilla) Henle of Gillette, and
Daren L Henle of Gillette; her
brothers: Kent (Jane) King of
Gillette, Gary (Lisa) King of Lin-
coln, Neb.; her sisters: Lotus M
Herrington of Casper, Wyo.,

Murdo, S.D., Judy Martin of
Olive Branch, Miss., Sherry
(Butch) Wheeler of Martin, S.D.,

tracks. A crew of five met us at
the city emergency room and
went right to work. They were
efficient and soon had Chance
out of the “scary” category
although still not out of the
From there we went to the
intensive care unit (ICU) where
things gradually improved over
the next few days. Antibiotics
were being used to kill off the
Klebsiella bacteria that had
somehow gotten into Chance’s
bloodstream causing what is
called “sepsis.” It can be very
serious. By Sunday, the doctor
thought we could maybe go home
in a day or two depending on how
things went. He then said to
remove the central line in
Chance’s neck and resume using
the port for the injection of
antibiotics. The central line, inci-
dentally, was installed originally
in the emergency room and is a
line to a major blood vessel in the
chest and capable of delivering
large amount of fluid and medi-
cine as needed. On Sunday, only
antibiotics were needed, and not
other things to help blood pres-
sure and such, so the port could
easily handle that.
Alas, within a half hour of
accessing the port, Chance again
got the shakes. I was confused
and went for a short walk to try
to make sense of it. Then it
dawned on me. The port had
gone bad and was collecting bac-
teria. If you accessed it, the bac-
teria flooded Chance’s system
and set him back into shock and
other places we didn’t want to go.
I rushed back to Chance’s room
and said, “The port has gone bad!
Don’t take out the central line!”
The nurse looked at me like I’d
gone mad, but I stayed right
there to make sure they did what
I said. They did, and further tests
proved I was right. The port will
have to be removed which is
okay. We haven’t needed it a lot,
but it has been handy from time
to time. Chance’s condition
improved fairly soon this morn-
ing so, although we may be here
a day or two more than we
thought earlier today, we might
be on the right track. There
might also be some bacteria prob-
lems with Chance’s stomach tube
and trach, but at least the port
won’t be pumping poison into his
So, the shadows have cleared
some at present for which we are
quite happy. The rest of that part
of the 23rd Psalm, by the way,
goes, “Yea, though I walk
through the valley of the shadow
of death, I will fear no evil for
thou art with me.” As you can
see, our Lord has certainly been
with us this past week, and for
that we are extremely glad. He’s
been going ahead of us, providing
good doctors and nurses, and
chasing the shadows away.
Sometimes you have to “walk
through the valley of the shadow
of death.” Well, we’ve had a few
shadows lurking around this last
week, but we’re all still here. It,
however, was touch and go a few
As it happened, son Chance
had an immunoglobulin (IVIG)
treatment a week ago Wednes-
day. This medicine, given
through his port, is designed to
counter the muscle weakness
and other effects of his myasthe-
nia gravis. It is often given for
three days every two or three
months. (A port, in case you
aren’t familiar with those, is a
device planted just under the
skin of the chest that leads to a
major blood vessel by the heart.
It is easier than having to always
insert an intravenous (IV) needle
into the arm.) That first IVIG
treatment went okay except
Chance’s temperature rose later
that evening to over a hundred
degrees for no apparent reason.
We were supposed to have anoth-
er of the three-hour treatments
the next day, but we decided to
wait a bit in case the tempera-
ture rise and the IVIG were
On Tuesday, though, almost a
week later, we gave it another go.
That was apparently a bad idea
since Chance developed a severe
case of the shakes within a half
hour of the start. This did not set
well with me, and I had them dis-
continue the whole thing at once.
I wasn’t sure what was going on,
but I didn’t like it. Chance was
shaking like you would if you
came in from getting thoroughly
chilled in zero-degree weather.
We unplugged the needle and
went home.
Just a bit later, though,
Chance’s temperature started to
rise. At 102, we called the hospi-
tal and said we were coming
back. The temperature rose to
over 104 before we got there, not
to mention that his heart rate
and respiration went way up and
his blood pressure and oxygen
saturation went way down. (We
have equipment to measure
those things since they’ve been
needed from past experience.)
These are all signs of shock and
can be fatal if not dealt with
straight away, and sometimes
even then. At the local hospital,
they did some tests and strongly
recommended we head to a larg-
er hospital west by ambulance,
which we decided to do. It was
the wee hours of Wednesday
morning when we arrived. We
had originally thought of just
taking Chance in the car by our-
selves but then finally decided on
the ambulance for various rea-
sons. The ambulance was a good
idea since our boy’s blood pres-
sure dropped alarmingly, and
they needed to throw on the siren
and flashing light and make
Lookin’ Around
• Syd Iwan •
The gentleman brought his 54-
year old wife to the clinic because
“she just seems to be run down
and tired all of the time.” He
described her as the “most fun
party girl a man could ever wish
for.” But now she seemed to be
tired all the time and just couldn’t
go. She would fall asleep if not
spoken to. On further question-
ing, it appeared that she was
alcoholic. A series of blood tests
were done and demonstrated that
she had advanced liver failure
secondary to cirrhosis of the liver
associated with her alcohol habit.
It appeared that she was drink-
ing the equivalent of a pint of
vodka per day and at the same
time was malnourished weighing
only 110 pounds.
I indicated to him that she was
going to have a fatal outcome sec-
ondary to liver failure if the habit
didn’t stop and some dramatic
changes in lifestyle weren’t insti-
tuted. A personal friend had
already told him the same thing
but he did not really understand
what this meant. He wanted to
know what liver failure was.
What did that mean? Should he
go to a specialist?
He and I sat down and had a
long talk. I explained to him that
there are two basic functions for
the liver. One is called excretory
function and the other is called
synthetic function. By excretory
function, we mean all of the waste
products that the liver removes
and secretes into the stool. The
two that are easily measured are
ammonia and something called
bilirubin which is a waste product
of blood breakdown. Bilirubin is
the chemical that increases in the
blood when a person becomes
jaundiced. His wife’s bilirubin
level was five mg percent, a nor-
mal being less than one mg per-
cent. She had a slightly yellow
skin color consistent with jaun-
dice. Her liver excretory capacity
had been diminished so much
that she could not keep up with
getting rid of the daily production
of waste products. In fact, this is
usually the second function to go
bad indicating a far advanced
The other major function of the
liver to go bad is called synthetic.
This has to do with the synthesis
of all of the essential proteins in
the blood and other parts of the
body. Examples include all of the
blood clotting factors. His wife
was covered with bruises because
even the slightest bump would
result in a bruised area. These
bruises had to be cleaned up by
the body and the waste products
removed. That is the liver’s job.
Her liver was so badly damaged
that she could not adequately
process the body’s waste prod-
ucts. I indicated to him that her
condition was advanced and fatal
unless there was some interven-
tion carried out.
So what did we do? This was
three years ago and I told him
that to return her to any sem-
blance of her former self, she
would need a liver transplant.
But while she waited for the
transplant, there were several
other important steps that need-
ed to be taken. First of all and
most important was to stop the
alcohol excess. When a person
has had as much alcohol as she
has as long as she had, sudden
withdrawals can be precipitate a
crisis. Step one was to cut the
alcohol intake down over an arbi-
trary chosen two week period.
During this time, she was to have
increased nutrition with ade-
quate amounts of protein and
vitamins, etc. Fortunately, this
got done at home as they refused
hospitalization. Second step
needed was to help remove the
waste products that the liver was
not excreting. There is a syrupy
liquid called lactulose that will
bind waste products that the liver
should put out but doesn’t. Lactu-
lose remains in the bowel, binds
those waste products and puts
them out in stool. The side effect
is loose stools and diarrhea but a
small price to pay in order to
remain alert and able to function.
The third step was to insure that
adequate protein was taken in
but not too much. Protein waste
products are very toxic and lead
to so called “hepatic coma.”
Fourth step she needed was a
special antibiotic called Rifaximin
to decrease the bacterial content
in the bowel. This antibiotic is not
absorbed but instead remains
within the bowel itself. By
decreasing the bowel’s bacterial
content, the number of bacterial
waste products that the bacteria
produce is lowered. These bacter-
ial waste products cause the
lady’s constant fatigue and
drowsiness. Over a month’s time
by slowly decreasing the lady’s
alcohol intake and then stopping
it altogether along with the use of
medications and an appropriate
diet, she became much more alert
and able to function. Fortunately,
she gave up her alcohol habit
altogether which is very difficult
and unusual for an alcoholic to
do. After a year of demonstrated
abstinence from alcohol, she was
eligible to be placed on the liver
transplant list and very fortu-
nately obtained an uneventful
liver transplant in the recent
past. It is too soon to know how
things are going to go in the
future but she and her husband
are very happy to have the suc-
cess that they have achieved.
Liver failure doesn’t only come
from alcoholic cirrhosis. There
are many diseases such as
hemochromatosis, hepatitis B,
hepatitis C, excess Tylenol, and
too many others to name.
Human beings have six major
organs that are essential for life.
These include the brain, the
heart, the lungs, the liver, the
kidney and the absorption system
of the bowel. At this time in med-
ical history, we can replace kid-
ney function with dialysis or
transplantation, liver functions
with medications and/or trans-
plantation, heart function with a
transplant and even an artificial
heart, lung function with trans-
plantation, and nutrition with
total parenteral intravenous
nutrition. Thus far, we do not
know how to replace the brain
function although it has been
brought to my attention that
there is just a whole bunch of peo-
ple that could use help in this
department, too.

Education department announces guidelines for
2013-14 free or reduced school meal programs
Child and Adult Nutrition
Services in the South Dakota
Department of Education
announces the policy for free milk
or free and reduced price meals.
The policy applies to children
unable to pay the full price of
meals or milk served under the
National School Lunch, School
Breakfast, and/or Special Milk
Programs. The administrative
office of each school that partici-
pates in the Lunch, Breakfast,
and/or Milk Program has a copy
of the policy available for review.
Children from families whose
income is at or below the levels
shown are eligible for free or
reduced price meals. Children
from a household whose income is
at or below the level shown for
free meals may be eligible for free
milk if the school participates in a
federally funded Special Milk
Families may apply for free or
reduced price meals or free milk
for their children for school year
2013-14 according to guidelines
effective July 1, 2013. Applica-
tions will be provided to house-
holds by the school. Families that
are directly certified as eligible
for free meals will receive a notice
of eligibility
The school will use the prior
year’s eligibility status (free,
reduced price, or paid) from last
year for up to the first 30 days of
school or until a new application
is approved or direct certification
is obtained, whichever comes
Households that are currently
on Supplemental Nutrition Assis-
tance Program (SNAP) or Tempo-
rary Assistance for Needy Fami-
lies (TANF) will receive letters
from the school indicating that
their children are eligible for free
school meals. These families
should not complete an applica-
tion for free meals. If a family
becomes eligible for benefits mid-
month, the family should fill out
an application and list their case
number so they get the free bene-
fits right away. All children in a
household with any household
member receiving benefits under
TANF or SNAP are eligible for
free meals.
Families receiving commodi-
ties through the Food Distribu-
tion Program on Indian Reserva-
tions (FDPIR) can request an
Interagency Action Notice that
can be brought to the school in
place of an application to docu-
ment free meal eligibility, or they
can complete an application and
list the FDPIR case number. All
children in a household with any
household member receiving ben-
efits under FDPIR are eligible for
free meals.
If the school knows of children
who are homeless, runaway, fos-
ter, from a migrant household, or
who are enrolled in Head Start,
they will send a letter to the
household telling them the chil-
dren are eligible for free meals. If
the household does not receive a
letter or has questions, they
should contact the school. The
household must notify the school
if it chooses to decline benefits.
Foster children that are under
the legal responsibility of a foster
care agency or court are eligible
for free meals. Any foster child in
the household is eligible for free
meals regardless of income.
Households may include foster
children on the application, but
are not required to include pay-
ments received for care of the fos-
ter child as income.
To apply for free or reduced
price meals, other households
should fill out the application and
return it to the school. An applica-
tion must include the names of
children for whom benefits are
requested, all household mem-
bers and their monthly income or
designation that they do not have
any income, and be signed by an
adult household member with the
last four digits of that person’s
social security number. Incom-
plete applications cannot be
approved for free or reduced price
meals. Additional copies are
available in the school office. The
information provided on the
application is confidential and
will be used for the purpose of
determining eligibility status for
school meals and Title I pro-
grams. The school will provide
additional information if it wants
to use eligibility status for other
An eligibility determination is
good for the whole year; however,
applications may be submitted at
any time during the year. Contact
the school if a household member
becomes unemployed or if the
household size changes. The chil-
dren from that household may be
eligible for free or reduced price
meals or free milk during the
time of unemployment if the
household’s income falls within
the income eligibility guidelines.
Information on any application
may be verified at any time dur-
ing the school year by school or
other program officials.
If a parent or guardian is dis-
satisfied with the ruling on the

more years cannot be enforced by
the courts. It is best to have all
land lease contracts in writing.
Having a written lease can pre-
vent a lot of misunderstanding if
one of the parties becomes inca-
pacitated or forgets the details of
the agreement.
Producers must annually pro-
vide the quantity of all harvested
production of the crop in which
the producer held an interest
during the crop year. We will
send out the “NAP Yields” form
which lists your acres and a spot
for you to record your production.
The deadline for reporting this
production is November 15, 2013.
Production reporting is required
for all 2013 crops on farms with
NAP coverage.

matically renew

Managed haying of CRP start-
ed August 2 and ends September
1. Managed grazing of CRP start-
ed August 2 and ends the earlier
of September 30 or the grazing
plan date. The regular paperwork
needs to be completed before any
CRP haying or grazing may take
place. Consult with the office to
inquire about the eligibility of
your CRP. A Haying/Grazing plan
is still needed to be signed at the
FSA office. You may sell the CRP
hay or lease the CRP ground. The
bales need to be removed from the
CRP by November 15 and all hay-
ing or grazing on CRP needs to be
reported to FSA by September 15.
Oral farm leases will renew
automatically for the next grow-
ing season on September 1 in
South Dakota, unless written
notice of intent to terminate or
modify the existing lease is given
before September 1. Any lease
that renews automatically carries
the same terms and conditions as
the existing lease. Once such
notice is given, the existing lease
still remains in effect until March
1, 2014, at which time the new
contract becomes effective. These
rules apply to both the tenant and
the landowner. The only excep-
tion is when one party fails to live
up to the terms of the original
agreement. Any lease agreement
for more than one year must be a
written lease if it is to be valid.

The winter wheat variety test-
ing results is a document highly
anticipated by winter wheat
growers each year. The results
are certainly late in 2013, due to
much of the wheat not emerging
or even germinating until spring,
and a cool and rainy spring and
summer in many parts of the
state. Harvesting the variety
plots was delayed as was the har-
vest for many producers.
As of this writing, not all of the
results have been compiled, nor
updates to the recommended,
acceptable and promising lists. A
temporary publication including
what plots have been analyzed is
available online at: http://igrow.
trial-results/, and at the SDSU
Regional Extension Centers. The
publication also includes the
agronomic characteristics that
are so important in choosing vari-
eties to plant such as lodging
resistance, winterhardiness, test
weight, protein content and dis-
ease resistance.
As additional information
becomes available, the online
publication will be updated as
quickly as possible.
Certified Seed Grower
Another important document
for winter wheat growers is the
current “Summer Edition” of the
Certified Seed Grower Directory.
Paper copies have been mailed to
SDSU Regional Extension Cen-
ters, and it is typically posted on
the South Dakota Crop Improve-
ment Association and Seed Certi-
fication website at: http://www.
sdstate. edu/ ps/ sdcia/ grower-
The Certified Seed Grower
Directory includes growers who
have fields planted with Founda-
tion or Registered seed and who
have made application for certifi-
cation. All fields listed in the
directory have passed all inspec-
tions to date. In order to be final-
ly certified, all seed must pass all
laboratory analysis conducted on
representative samples of the
conditioned (cleaned) seed lot.
Challenges in Harvesting
The 2013 small grain harvest
has been challenging in many
areas of the state due to wet
weather and weeds growing in
the crop because of it. As is the
case for many situations in the
farming business, having a plan
in place should various circum-
stances occur can help make
important decisions.
Although the opportunity to
make and implement plans that
would have helped for this har-
vest is past, the 2013 harvest sea-
son was a learning experience.
When weeds begin showing up in
a crop that is mature, or nearly
so; and wet weather is delaying
harvest, a harvest aid herbicide
application may be warranted. If
weather limits the time when
conditions allow harvesting to be
accomplished, incurring the addi-
tional expense of hiring custom
operators to help, and/or harvest-
ing the crop a little wet and pay-
ing drying costs may pay in the
When one considers the lost
income due to discounts for reduc-
tions in test weight, high levels of
dockage, shattering, etc., spend-
ing additional money to get the
crop harvested and in good condi-
tion may be well justified.

Murdo Coyote • August 29, 2013 • 8
Fair season is here and it’s come
faster than we all imagined. Our
kids are already hauling them-
selves back to school and hitting
the books, and we’re all trying to
squeeze just a little bit more of
summer out of each day. Many
families across South Dakota,
including mine, are also flocking to
the local fair for a day or evening
full of rides and delicious food.
Our state’s fair tradition
reminds me how lucky I am to call
South Dakota home. These fairs
have become much more than a
night out with family and friends.
Kids from all around our state
showcase their talents through
cattle shows, baked goods and rop-
ing competitions. Bryon and I take
our three kids, Kassidy, Kennedy
and Booker, out to taste test, cheer
South Dakota’s
fair tradition
on riders and walk through the
livestock barns. I continue to be
amazed by the hard work and ded-
ication that some of our kids put
into raising and showing their ani-
mals. It is a wonderful display of
our state culture and community.
Fairs also give us a unique
opportunity to reconnect with
South Dakotans from all walks of
life. Just the other day, I was
remembering the many nights
Bryon and I walked cattle around
the State Fairgrounds in Huron in
the middle of the night, allowing
the cattle to release some pent-up
energy from the day’s show. Some-
times, these moments feel like
they just happened yesterday and
they are so special to me, which is
why I will continue to bring my
family out to some of the best
gatherings our state has to offer.
I was recently in Rapid City for
the Central States Fair and had a
great day meeting and talking
with folks from all across the
state. My daughter, Kassidy, came
along with me and we enjoyed
making new friends, sampling
some good food on the midway, and
good entertainment at the rodeo
that evening.
If you haven’t had the opportu-
nity to make a trip to a fair this
year, I hope you’ll consider joining
me at the South Dakota State Fair
in Huron on Friday, August 30th.
I’ll be hosting a town hall at the
Women’s Building with House
Agriculture Committee Chairman
Frank Lucas at 11:00am CDT and
would love to hear what’s on your
No matter which county or local
fair is in your area, all fairs pres-
ent a unique opportunity to create
lasting memories with friends,
family and the entire South Dako-
ta community. I hope to see you at
a South Dakota fair sometime
From the U.S. House

From the U.S. Senate
• Senator John Thune •
Every year, South Dakotans of
all ages enjoy attending the fairs
across our state. Whether it is the
Turner County Fair, Central
States Fair, Brown County Fair,
Dakotafest, the State Fair, or any
event in between, these fairs mark
an annual tradition that families
look forward to all year.
I know a trip to the State Fair is
not complete for me if I don’t stop
by the Pork Producers’ or Cattle-
men’s booth for a sandwich and
learn the latest news from live-
stock producers. Fairs are also a
chance to see familiar faces and
reconnect with old friends.
Many of the fairs provide educa-
tional opportunities for young peo-
ple to meet other students who
have similar interests from around
the state. FFA and 4-H students
look forward to opportunities to
exhibit produce and craft items, or
show the animals they have care-
fully raised in the months leading
up to the fair. When they aren’t
competing, many of the young peo-
ple will take a ride or two, pick up
a yard stick, or play a few games.
Adults can enjoy perusing the
booths at exhibit halls, where they
can find the latest gadgets and
home products. Many enjoy listen-
ing to speakers, watching the day-
time entertainment, or taking in
an election year debate.
At night, the whole family can
round out the day with a concert
from a favorite band or attend the
rodeo for some entertainment.
These large performances always
draw a crowd and invite a larger
audience to the fair.
Time spent at the fair helps cre-
ate lasting family memories.
Hopefully everyone has had a
chance to take in at least some of
the sights, tastes, and sounds of
this great South Dakota summer

State parks taking camping

The Game, Fish & Parks

Average Composite ACT Scores - South Dakota vs. National
South Dakota ACT
scores above average
The state’s ACT scores are on
the rise, and despite one of the
highest participation rates in the
nation, South Dakota continues
to see above-average performance
by test-takers.
Nearly 80 percent of South
Dakota’s 2013 graduates took the
ACT. The students earned an
average composite ACT score of
21.9, compared to a national aver-
age of 20.9. The state average has
been at 21.8 for the past three
“The fact that such a high per-
centage of our students choose to
take the ACT, and perform well,
is a good indication that they are
planning on some sort of postsec-
ondary education experience,
which is a must in today’s world,”
said Secretary of Education Dr.
Melody Schopp.
As South Dakota transitions to
new college-ready standards in
English and math at the K-12
level, Schopp says educators and
parents should be looking more
closely at ACT “benchmarks.”
These benchmark scores provide
an indication of how students will
perform once they enter a post-
secondary institution. Specifical-
ly, a benchmark score indicates
that the student has a 50 percent
chance of obtaining a B or higher
or a 75 percent chance of obtain-
ing a C or higher in the corre-
sponding college course.
Of the 2013 South Dakota
graduates who took the ACT, 72
percent met the benchmark in
English, compared to 64 percent
nationally. Fifty-two percent met
the benchmark in reading, com-
pared to 44 percent nationally. In
math, 53 percent of South Dakota
graduates met the benchmark for
college readiness, compared to 44
percent nationally. And in sci-
ence, 46 percent met the ACT
benchmark, compared to 36 per-
cent nationally.
“Once again, the good news is
that when you look at the bench-
marks, South Dakota is outper-
forming the rest of the nation,”
Dr. Schopp said. “But you can also
see that we’ve got plenty of oppor-
tunity to grow, and that’s where
we need to focus our energies.”
One of the efforts currently
under way to address college
readiness is a collaborative effort
of the Department of Education
and the Board of Regents. The
two agencies have partnered to
provide online coursework for
students who need to improve
their skills in certain areas, prior
to moving on to postsecondary.
Once a student successfully com-
pletes the coursework and related
assessment, Board of Regents’
institutions will accept that
coursework in lieu of a certain
ACT score. The two entities also
are developing a senior English
course and a college-prep math
course, both designed to help stu-
dents brush up on critical skills
before leaving high school.
The ACT is scored on a scale of
1 to 36, with 36 being the highest
possible score. Students are test-
ed in the areas of English, mathe-
matics, reading and science. The
test is commonly used by postsec-
ondary institutions as a bench-
mark for college entrance and

Warning of possible scam
targeting S.D. citizens
Chief Justice David Gilbertson
and Attorney General Marty
Jackley are warning South
Dakotans of a scam targeting
South Dakota citizens. The scam
involves callers identifying them-
selves as court employees seeking
to collect payment in order for an
individual to avoid immediate
legal action. The caller will ask
for personal identifying informa-
tion and credit card information.
They use the threat of court
action in order to convince trust-
ing individuals to provide this
information to avoid legal conse-
It is important for citizens to
remember that the court does not
use phone solicitations to seek
private information from the pub-
lic. If you have been a victim of
this scam or need any additional
information, contact South Dako-
ta Consumer Protection Division
at 1-800-300-1986 or consumer-
help@state.sd.us. You can also
contact your local court to verify
the existence of a legal action or
outstanding court debt.
High school BIG Idea
competition launches statewide
Youth! Cash! Scholarships!
Entrepreneurship Education!
Community Support!
These are the key ingredients
in the BIG Idea Competition
which is launching its seventh
year of competition this fall. High
school students across South
Dakota are invited to compete in
this business idea competition,
and winners will receive nearly
$5,000 in cash awards and schol-
Students may work individual-
ly or as a team and will be able to
submit their business idea appli-
cations online from September 1
until October 31, 2013. The online
application as well as various
resources and examples can be
accessed at the BIG Idea website:
www.BIGIdeaSD.com. The writ-
ten idea entry consists of a maxi-
mum 1075-word description of
the student(s)’ business concept.
For the optional marketing
design competition, students will
create an ad and logo to support
their business idea.
Coordinator Kelly Weaver of
the Small Business Development
Center said, “We are excited for
the 2013 BIG Idea Competition
and the learning experience it
offers to all participating stu-
dents. Based on the 2012 experi-
ence, we hope to connect students
who are seriously pursuing a
business with resources and men-
tors to further our support of
youth entrepreneurship.”
All applications submitted by
the October 31, 2013 deadline
will be reviewed and ranked by
several judges across the state.
The eight top scoring idea appli-
cations will be invited to the final
competition and will make a six
minute presentation for the final
judging component. The top three
applications will receive cash
awards of $1,000, $500 and $250,
respectively. College scholarships
to both Northern State Universi-
ty and Presentation College will
be awarded as well. One winner
will be chosen from among all the
marketing design entries and be
awarded $500.
The final competition and
awards event will be held on
Thursday, December 5 at North-
ern State University in Aberdeen.
Students will participate in a
panel discussion with several
local successful entrepreneurs.
Students will hear the journey
that these entrepreneurs have
traveled and be able to ask ques-
tions of them. Prior to the awards
presentation, all finalists will
give an elevator pitch of their
business idea.
In its six years of existence, the
BIG Idea Competition has
received 865 entries involving
over 1,165 students from 46 area
schools. The competition is open
to any high school student in the
state. The winning entry in 2012
was Canning Coaches presented
by Rachel Schartz of West Cen-
tral High School. A complete list-
ing of the 2012 finalists can be
found on the BIG Idea website
along with a video of their eleva-
tor pitches.
Homegrown businesses are key
to the success of our rural com-
munities, and a major goal of the
BIG Idea competition is to
increase the spirit of entrepre-
neurship. By exposing our youth
to new ideas and innovation, they
can consider entrepreneurship as
an option for their future. Rather
than leaving the region to look for
a job, they can have the confi-
dence to create their own oppor-
tunities close to home and know
that there is support for them
should they choose to do so.
The competition is coordinated
by the Small Business Develop-
ment Center and major funder,
Absolutely!Aberdeen. Additional
support is provided by Northern
State University, Presentation
College, McQuillen Creative
Group, Aberdeen Development
Corporation, and the Tom and
Danielle Aman Foundation.
Other collaborating organizations
include: Aberdeen Area Chamber
of Commerce, Aberdeen Down-
town Association, Aberdeen
Catholic School System – Roncal-
li High School, Aberdeen School
District – Central High School,
and Dacotah Bank. Questions
regarding the competition can be

High school sports participation
increases for 24th consecutive year
Participation in high school
sports increased for the 24th con-
secutive year in 2012-13 and
passed the 7.7 million mark for
the first time, according to the
annual High School Athletics
Participation Survey conducted
by the National Federation of
State High School Associations
Based on figures from the 51
NFHS-member state high school
associations, which includes the
District of Columbia, sports par-
ticipation for the 2012-13 school
year reached an all-time high of
7,713,577 participants – an
increase of 21,057 from the previ-
ous year.
An additional 15,190 girls par-
ticipated in high school sports
last year, moving the girls all-
time record to 3,222,723 and
marking the 24th consecutive
year for an increase in the num-
ber of female participants. After
its first decrease in 20 years last
year, boys participation started
on the upswing again with an
additional 5,867 participants.
The boys total of 4,490,854 is sec-
ond all-time to the 4,494,406 in
“While we recognize that many
schools are experiencing chal-
lenges with funding high school
sports programs, we are encour-
aged that schools are responding
to the challenges and that more
and more students are involved
in high school sports,” said Bob
Gardner, NFHS executive direc-
tor. “Playing sports within the
school setting continues to be the
desire of more than 55 percent of
students enrolled in our nation’s
high schools.”
Eight of the top 10 girls sports
registered increases in participa-
tion in 2012-13, led by competi-
tive spirit squads (8,201), outdoor
track and field (4,172), and swim-
ming and diving (3,536).
Lacrosse, cross country, volley-
ball, soccer and tennis also had
additional female participants,
while basketball and fast-pitch
softball had minor declines.
Five of the top 10 boys sports
showed increases in participa-
tion, led by outdoor track and
field (5,044), swimming and div-
ing (4,354), and basketball
(3,387). Cross country and base-
ball also registered gains among
top 10 sports.
Eleven-player football remains
the top sport for boys with
1,086,627 participants in 2012-
13, although the number of play-
ers has decreased slightly each of
the past four years, including a
drop of 9,366 from 2011-12 to
In terms of combined participa-
tion, track and field, and swim-
ming and diving registered the
best overall gains. Track and field
had an increase of more than
9,100 participants when combin-
ing girls and boys, while swim-
ming and diving was up almost
8,000 participants.
Girls sports outside the top 10
that recorded increases in partic-
ipants and could be emerging
sports for females are bowling
(25,450 participants in 2012-13),
ice hockey (9,447), wrestling
(8,727) and flag football (7,019).
A sizeable increase in “adapted
sports” participation also con-
tributed to the rise in 2012-13 fig-
ures. With seven states offering
these programs for students with
disabilities in 14 sports, the num-
ber of participants rose almost
3,000 to 8,747 (girls and boys
The top 10 states by partici-
pants remained in the same order
as last year, with Texas and Cali-
fornia topping the list with
798,333 and 777,545, respective-
ly. The remainder of the top 10
was New York (389,475), Illinois
(339,944), Ohio (327,919), Penn-
sylvania (315,492), Michigan
(304,438), New Jersey (270,423),
Florida (243,397) and Minnesota
(230,421). Although only one of
the top 10 states registered an
increase in participation (New
Jersey), overall, 30 states report-
ed higher figures from the previ-
ous year.
The participation survey has
been compiled since 1971 by the
NFHS through numbers it
receives from its member associa-
tions. The complete 2012-13 High
School Athletics Participation
Survey is attached in PDF format
