Ingrid H. Gebhart
Obituaries
Ingrid started school in the fall of 1930 at Coal Springs, she could not speak a word of English at the time. Her teacher was Leone McMahon, who became a life-long friend. Ingrid and Hanna would sit around the kitchen table in the evening and teach English to their parents. Ingrid and Hanna finished grade school in 1938 and started at Meadow Central High School the next fall. The fall of 1940 they continued their education at Lemmon High School, graduating with the Class of 1942. On December 25, 1943, Ingrid was united in marriage to Arnold Gebhart. They began their life together on a farm seven miles northeast of Glad Valley. To this union six children were born. In 1965, they purchased her parents’ place and moved back to the Coal Springs area. According to Ingrid her greatest accomplishment in life was being a mother to her six children. She was very proud of her family. She was a long time member of Indian Creek Lutheran Church. She was very active in the lady’s aide. She was known for her lefse at the Fall Dinners. She served many pies and rolls at the Faith Sale barn. Long hours were spent quilting for the church. Gardening was especially enjoyable for Ingrid. She truly loved nurturing her various vegetable and flower gardens. She will always be remembered for her beautiful flower gardens. She was an exceptionally good cook, one of the best! To quote a neighbor, “She could make anything taste good.” There was always enough food for everyone who stopped at meal time and nobody ever left her table hungry. Her children and grandchildren will never forget her Norwegian goodies, raisin cookies, and especially her delicious caramel rolls. In September of 2007, she moved into the Five Counties Nursing Home in Lemmon. Over the next five years the staff became part of her family. She remained there until her passing,

Funeral services for Ingrid H. Gebhart, age 88, of Meadow, S.D., were held on Saturday, November 24, 2012, at the Indian Creek Lutheran Church near Meadow, with Rev. Bob Edwards officiating and burial in the Chance Cemetery. Ingrid Hjordis (Flatmoe) Gebhart was born July 12, 1924 to Christopher and Petra (Kornstad) Flatmoe at Skage in Namdalen, Norway. Ingrid was baptized that same year at Overhalla Church in Skage. On June 15, 1941 Ingrid was confirmed at Indian Creek Church at Chance. In May of 1929, with the encouragement of Petra’s family, who were already in America, Christopher and Petra Flatmoe and their four children Hanna, Ingrid, Clara and Iver sailed for America aboard the Slavangersfjord. One of Ingrid’s memories of the voyage was her dad holding Iver up by the railings and being scared that he might drop him overboard. After nine days on the boat the family arrived at Ellis Island on May 25, 1929. They boarded a train and continued to Lemmon where they were met by Petra’s mother, Karin Gustofson, and her brother Knute Kornstad. From there the family rode in a 1927 Whippit car to her grandparent’s farm near Coal Springs, S.D. This was the family’s first car ride.

School meal standards add more grains and proteins
The U.S. Department of Agriculture announced recently that they will be lifting the previously imposed limits on how much protein and grains could be served to students in one week. The latest modifications will be set in place for the rest of the 2012-2013 school year, explains Ann Schwader, SDSU Extension Nutrition Field Specialist. “These changes are positive and show that the USDA is willing to work with nutrition officials and others who have concerns related to the new standards,” Schwader said. The original changes to the school lunch standards were announced January 2012, due to the national Healthy, Hunger Free Kids Act (Public Law 111-296) that determined how much of certain food groups could be served, set limits on calories and salt and phased in whole grains. Schwader says the move to create stricter guidelines was motivated by the fact that the obesity rates among school children are growing and steps were needed to reverse the trend. “These guidelines aligned school meals with the latest nutrition science, based on recommendations of nutrition experts and the 2010 Dietary Guidelines for Americans nutrition recommendations,” she said. The new school meal patterns meet specific calorie ranges for children in grades K-5 (650 calories), 6-8 (700 calories), and 9-12 (850 calories). “The intention of the new school lunch guidelines is to ensure that almost all children receive at least one-third of their daily nutritional and energy needs,” Schwader said. The latest modifications are being provided to allow schools more weekly planning options to ensure that children receive a nutritious meal every day of the week. According to the revisions, the students can eat as many grains and proteins as they want, as long as they are eating the allotted amount of calories put forth by the USDA. SDSU Extension recommends that parents assist their children with the changes to the school lunch standards. “Parents can make sure their youth eats a nutritious breakfast and encourage them to take and eat the fruits, vegetables, whole grains, lean proteins and low-fat milk offered in school meals,” she

Antlerless only tags valid Dec. 29
Deer hunters who have unfilled antlerless deer tags for the East and West River Deer Seasons will have nine additional days available to harvest antlerless deer beginning December 29 and ending on January 6. South Dakota Game Fish and Parks Terrestrial Chief Tom Kirschenmann reminds hunters to be aware of the regulation change from the past several years. “Over the past several seasons, ‘any deer’ tags have converted to ‘antlerless’ tags for the extended season,” Kirschenmann said. “That is not the case this year. Only unfilled ‘antlerless’ tags will be valid during the late season.” The changes were made as part of deer herd management objectives to direct additional antlerless harvest in the areas of the state that need it most while curtailing the doe harvest in areas where it is not needed.
SD Highway Patrol message
Season’s Greetings from the South Dakota Highway Patrol Motor Carrier Services. If there’s one present I can give you this holiday season it’s knowledge. It’s letting you know that it’s not enough just to wear your seatbelt if you’re in the front seat. You need to wear it in the backseat as well. It’s that the majority of people who die in traffic crashes aren’t wearing their seatbelts. It’s that people who are in accidents and aren’t buckled up are often thrown from the car. It’s that it’s time to take responsibility for your own life and buckle up. Buckling up is the gift that keeps on giving. Safe travels and happy holidays from the South Dakota Highway Patrol Motor Carrier Services.

As the weather remains cold outside and consumers look to travel to warmer climates, Attorney General Marty Jackley warns those consumers to be cautious of travel offers that sound too good to be true. Whether you are a college student looking forward to spring break or just someone wanting to get away for a long weekend in the sun, follow these tips to avoid getting burned: •Work with a reputable travel company, preferably one that is local. •Be very cautious of those companies that sound like other companies with similar names, verify if the company is legitimate.
Attorney General Jackley offers tips to avoid travel scams
Lookin’ Around
• Syd Iwan •
Beginnings are often better than endings. Take the moon in its cycle, for instance. It starts out as a tiny crescent in the west just after sunset and is really nifty then. When I first notice it hanging there, I often say something like, “Welcome back, Moon. Nice to see you again.” The moon doesn’t reply, of course, but I say it anyway. From that thin crescent, then, this second-brightest light in the heavens keeps on growing from night to night until it blossoms into a big and pretty full moon. It stays big for a few nights although little chunks start disappearing from it. Then by the fourth week of the cycle, I seldom notice it much since it comes up so late— just before sunrise. Finally, it disappears altogether for a night before being reincarnated as a thin fellow again in the west. To me, the beginning of the moon’s cycle is great, and things stay interesting all the way to the halfway point. From there on it’s all downhill, as they say. The life cycle of animals can be similar. There is nothing much cuter than a baby animal whether it be a calf, pony, or puppy. The cuteness tends to win your heart. From there, critters continue to grow into adults when they hopefully will become more useful, but probably not as attractive. After the midpoint of their lives, just like the moon, things start to go downhill until that particular life is over. The last part can even be sad. Humans aren’t much different. If a new baby appears in the community, the ladies are strongly drawn to it. (Men, not so much.) The gals, though, admire it, hold it, and thoroughly enjoy it. Seeing that baby grow and prosper is pleasant as well. People in their prime are fine too, but decline has to eventually set in if life goes on long enough. The final days of a life can be hard indeed and difficult to see or deal with. Then we come to marriages. They usually start out with a great deal of joy and happiness. Unfortunately, in this day and age, it frequently doesn’t last very long. When I used to do wedding photography, a few times I barely got the wedding albums delivered before things fell apart. I shouldn’t complain because that meant income from another wedding in a few years, but the collapse is not fun to watch. I have even had a part in someone’s third wedding a few times, but quite often the third time is the charm and things actually hold together. Some marriages, though, don’t go into decline, even right up to the point where one of the partners dies. They may even continue to strengthen. That’s nice to see. Faith in God can strengthen and grow right to the end of life as well so not everything goes into decline, I’m happy to say. Years, however, follow the morenormal cycle of good beginning and strong midpoint, followed by disintegration. I am always very glad to start a new year with all the possibilities of interesting happenings ahead. Sure, it can be chilly in January, but at least the days are getting longer and the temperatures are getting warmer as the days pass. By March and April we’re apt to have some really nice days. Spring, as I have probably mentioned many times before, is my absolute favorite with green grass, flowers, baby animals and so on. I think I could live in perpetual spring. From there we go to the most productive part of the year with growing crops and all that until we get to fall. Although fall can be really pretty with the leaves changing color and putting on a show, it also signals the closing of the year. November and December are the pits as far as I’m concerned with short days, snow and cold. I sometimes think I really deserve to have a few days of good old deep depression about then, but luckily I usually don’t have time for it what with Thanksgiving and then Christmas. By the time I recover from those events, here it is the first of the year and off we go again. Right now, as you know, we are perched right at the beginning of a fresh year with all the promise of better days to come, neat new stuff to try out, and old pursuits to enjoy again. I’m ready for it. Let’s go. Here’s wishing us all the greatest of new years complete with excessive productivity, joy and happiness. May it be so. Have a very happy New Year.

2012 ACRE PRODUCTION REPORTS DUE BY JULY 15, 2013 – LAST YEAR OF ACRE Production for the ACRE program will be required to be reported on the FSA-658. FSA needs to collect this information from you, the producer. Crop insurance can send us information, but we will still need a signed FSA-658. Just like the last few years, this year, we will only need 2012 production reported.
FSA CHANGES WAY PRODUCERS RECEIVE IRS FORMS Beginning this year, producers whose total reportable payments from the Farm Service Agency are less than $600 will not receive IRS Form 1099-G. Previously, the forms were issued to show all program payments received from FSA, regardless of the amount. Producers who receive payments from more than one county will receive one 1099-G form if the total of all payments from all counties is $600 or more. The same changes apply to producers who normally receive IRS Form 1099-MISC.
NAP SALES CLOSING DATE IS MARCH 15 The last day to purchase NAP insurance for 2013 is March 15. Noninsured Crop Disaster Assistance Program (NAP) provides financial assistance to producers of non-insurable crops when low yields, loss of inventory, or prevented planting occurs due to natural disasters. o be eligible for NAP assistance, crops must be noninsurable crops and agricultural commodities for which the catastrophic risk protection level of crop insurance is not available. DATES TO REMEMBER/ DEADLINES: January 1: Office closed for New Year’s Day
$650,000 PAID OUT IN JONES COUNTY FOR NAP We will need your 2012 NAP production to keep your APH accurate and higher than an assigned low yield. If production is not reported on your NAP crops, zero production is assigned to those acres, which decreases your future NAP payments. This was very evident as we paid many NAP losses in 2012. Jones County paid out over $650,000 for drought-related crop losses. This could have been higher if yields and APHs were reported by everyone.
As the minutes tick off the clock, we just want to take a moment to wish all of our customers a New Year that rocks!
For a New Year of health, happiness and prosperity to you and yours. Thank you so much for your generous support. We look forward to working with you again in the future.

There is no question that the holiday season is one of the busiest times of the year. Holiday celebrations (serving plenty of alcohol) are as common as decorating the house and shopping for bargains. For many in South Dakota, drinking is a social habit and unfortunately, some drinkers choose to drive while impaired. Whether that person has had way too many or one too many, a designated driver is the best option. Studies show that even one drink decreases reaction time, a factor that can prove fatal when a person gets behind the wheel of a car. There are many options for the upcoming holiday celebrations if we choose to use them. The options could be as simple as serving festive non-alcoholic drinks (plenty of recipes found online) for designated drivers and those guests choosing not to drink, establishing a sober driver before the festivities begin, or carrying the phone number of a local taxi service so it is

convenient to find at the end of the night. All too often the question of being caught is a major factor when deciding to drive after a few drinks. The public should instead be asking themselves, what will happen if I don’t get caught? This answer is much more frightening than prosecution of DUI, subsequent financial loss or loss of license. The destruction impaired drivers inflict upon their communities is immeasurable. Just ask someone who has experienced the loss of a loved one due to a drunk driver. When you weigh all the options available for getting home after a holiday celebration, drinking and driving is not one of them. When you add it all up, drunk driving is simply not worth the risk. Avoid the holiday buzz. Drive sober or get pulled over. Jones County Cares Murdo, S.D.

The Tri-County Ranchers Workshop will be held Wednesday, January 16, 2013 at the Winner Regional Extension Center in Winner, SD, beginning with registration at 9:30 am, CST. Dr. Barry Dunn, Dean of the College of Agriculture and Biological Sciences, SDSU is scheduled to emcee the event, and share some thoughts about SDSU, SDSU Extension and how the University serves farmers and ranchers during the noon break. The topics and speakers were selected to address issues facing ranchers dealing with the lingering effects of the 2012 drought, but should be of interest to anyone in Tri-County Ranchers Workshop the ranching business over the long term. Starting the program will be Jim Krantz, Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist, discussing CHAPS and Record Keeping. CHAPS is a computerized performance testing system that was originally developed in the early 1990’s in North Dakota. North Dakota State University is collaborating with SDSU to revamp the program to better fit the needs of today’s cattlemen. The next speaker will be Adele Harty, Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist, providing information on Livestock Nutrition and Water Quality. The 2012 drought required producers to get creative in securing enough feed to maintain their cow herds, and may be dealing with feedstuffs they are not used to dealing with. Water was also a major concern, and an important part of a ranching operation. Finishing up the morning will be Pete Bauman, Extension Range Field Specialist, outlining some innovative ideas for Rangeland Water Development. Lunch will be served at no charge to participants, courtesy of area Conservation Districts and agri-businesses. After lunch, Laura Edwards, Extension Climate Field Specialist will provide a Weather Update and outlook for 2013, and Matt Diersen, Extension Risk Management Specialist, will outline the Market situation in the cattle industry.

One Step at a Time
I press on to lay hold of (grasp) and make my own, that for which Christ Jesus (the Messiah) has laid hold of me and made me His own. —Philippians 3:12 Following God is like climbing a mountain. If God showed us how high the mountain really is that He wants us to climb, we might be afraid to take the first step. We might argue that we're not ready, that we're not at all prepared to go all the way to the top. So He covers the top of the summit with a cloud, and all we can see is the step before us. That first step looks manageable, so we take it. And then we take another step, and another, and another, until one day we find ourselves at the top of the mountain without even realizing where we were headed when we began. Then we are very glad we took the journey. I recall a woman who came to me complaining that she could not hear from God, that He was not speaking to her even though she was seeking Him about some things. He told me that there was no point in speaking to her about doing something else until she had done the last thing He had told her, which she had not done yet. In God's plan for us, we cannot skip steps that we don't like and move on to other ones. We cannot skip the hard steps or the ones that require sacrifice. I repeat: following God's plan for our lives requires investment. We must sacrifice self-will to have God's will. We must sacrifice our way to find His way. Don't be afraid of sacrifice—it eventually sets us free to be all we desire to be.

The Clinical View
2013
A 56-year old gentleman recently came to the clinic saying that he wanted a “complete physical.” He had a friend that recently discovered quite unexpectedly that she had diffuse terminal pancreatic cancer. A lady had gone from a fully functional individual to a mortal end in less than three months after the discovery of her pancreatic cancer. He said that he never wanted to go through that and wanted to be sure that if he had something wrong, it would be found early enough to be corrected. It was a slow day and we had an interesting discussion. The following points were discussed. 1. Medical science at this time has no tool that will predictably detect pancreatic cancer. It must be kept in mind that a cancer begins as one abnormal cell that then divides and becomes two abnormal cells. On average, about three months later, the two abnormal cells divide and become four abnormal cells. About three months later, the four abnormal cells divide and become eight abnormal cells and this procedure goes on for seven years before the tumor becomes large enough to detect on an x-ray or by surgery. By the third to fourth year after the tumor has occurred, pieces of it have already broken off and traveled to other parts of the body where they begin to grow at the same rate as the original tumor. Thus, by the time that the primary tumor is detected, there is no predictably effective treatment. There are many diseases like pancreatic cancer that are brought on by fate and have no predictably effective method of detection or treatment. 2. Thus, the concept of the “complete physical” has limited application. There are many lifesaving steps a person can take to prolong their life. But to me, the more important use of preventive medicine is to make life more enjoyable, prevent deterioration of function and prevent suffering. While there are many things a person can do to preserve their health and function, mortality is an act of fate. 3. Heart disease is the leading cause of death in the United HEALTH TIPS TO MAKE 2013 A BETTER YEAR

States. Estimates suggest that 95 percent of people who have coronary artery disease will have one or more of the four major risk factors that are correctable. These include hypertension, high blood cholesterol, diabetes and smoking cigarettes. All four of these factors are preventable, treatable factors. High blood pressure is easy to detect, relatively easy to treat for most people, and markedly reduces the incidence of heart attack and stroke in the population. High blood cholesterol is easily detected, also treatable, and highly effective for prevention of heart attack. The diabetes epidemic in our society at this time is genetically permitted but caused by dietary excess so rampant in our society at this point. Cigarette abuse is preventable by the individual and is the most costly health factor in our society. If a person smokes cigarettes, there is a 60 percent chance that cigarette smoking will be the cause of their death and usually proceeded by substantial disability. 4. Cancer is the second leading cause of death in our society. In men, cancer of the lung is the most common cause of death. As mentioned above, this is totally preventable by not smoking cigarettes. Cancer of the breast is a leading cause of death in women. Estrogen replacement therapy very slightly increases the likelihood that a women will develop a cancer of the breast but there are no predictably effective methods to prevent a cancer of the breast. Thus, the medical profession has devoted their efforts to early detection and treatment. With these steps, cancer of the breast is one of the most treatable malignancies occurring our country. By far, the most effective step a lady can perform is mammography on schedule. Arguments rage over what age to start and how often. Some women insist that surveillance should begin at age 40 and be annual. The United States Preventive Service Task Force had suggested that it be done every two years and started at age 50. To me it is an individual choice but one which pays high dividends in improving the quality of life for women. Cancer of the colon is the second leading cause of death in men and third leading cause in women. It is totally preventable by having a colonoscopy done with removal of polyps before they become cancerous. 5. Stroke is the third leading cause of death in our society. The most common form of stroke called a thrombosis has the same risk factors as for coronary artery disease. There is perhaps more emphasis for high blood pressure and smoking cigarettes causing stroke. But if one is effective in dealing with the risk for coronary artery disease, the risk for stroke would have been dealt with. 6. In the younger age group, accidents are the leading cause of mortality. Primarily the accidents revolve around risky behavior such as driving while intoxicated, driving too fast and being injudicious when participating in recreational activities. For the older age group, accidents are less frequent but often more devastating. Fall prevention depends upon avoiding stairs, avoiding throw rugs, providing adequate lights within the home to prevent falls. Obtaining a DEXA scan to determine bone density can play a big part in detecting and treating osteoporosis which is the most common reason that a fall results in a broken hip or broken wrist or broken back. 7. Obtain immunizations on schedule. Most children receive their immunizations or they can’t

go to school. The famous DPT shot protects against diphtheria, pertussis and tetanus. Things that are new include adults getting another of this series in order to prevent the pertussis infection which is whooping cough. Whooping cough in adults is not as disabling as it is in children but it often leads to respiratory tract symptoms that last with a cough for two months. Obtaining the pertussis vaccination is very useful. Additional adult immunizations include the annual flu vaccine, a pneumonia shot at least once over age 60 and appropriate immunizations depending upon the person’s exposures. Obviously, veterinarians need to be immunized against rabies. The shingles shot is also worth doing in adults. Daycare attendants need to be immunized against hepatitis A. Healthcare providers possibly exposed to blood and blood products need to be immunized against hepatitis B. Our military immunizes recruits for all of the above plus anthrax, plague, and I don’t even know what else. For the adult population over age 50 in our society, maintaining pertussis and pneumonia vaccinations are important. There are a host of social factors that affect primarily the quality of life but to some extent the duration of life. These will be discussed in the next column.
