Drought risk: webinar series continues
As producers across the state make plans for the spring, one thing that remains in the back of their mind is the need for moisture to improve the drought conditions that have tightened their grip over the winter months, says Kalyn Waters SDSU Extension Cow/Calf Field Specialist. “Spring is right around the corner, and it does not seem as though the winter has helped lessen the hold the drought has on the Great Plains. While everyone remains optimistic, we must also be proactive,” Waters said. In an effort to be proactive, the SDSU Extension Livestock staff have partnered with University of Nebraska-Lincoln Extension to host a five-part webinar series with the focus of helping ranchers across the state prepare for the possibility of the drought continuing in 2013. This series of meetings is titled “Managing Drought Risk on the Ranch.” “UNL Extension and the Drought Mitigation Center have done an outstanding job putting together this program. They have slated some of the best speakers available to provide critical information to producers. The first meeting proved that these are quality, applicable meetings that producers will gain greatly from,” Waters said. These meetings are also intended to educate professionals and consultants who work with ranchers as a professional development series. The webinars will be presented the last Wednesday of each month. The next meeting will be February 27 and they will conclude in May. One-hour webinars will begin at 9 a.m. MST or 10 a.m. CST at the SDSU Extension Regional Centers. Each session will include current drought updates and forecasts and presentations about specific information or tools. Following each webinar, the regional centers will join together via video conference for a question and answer session, with SDSU Extension Specialists presenting additional information relevant to South Dakota producers. Topics each month will consider drought planning information and tools available to producers. In addition to university and Extension presenters, a number of ranchers will also be featured, describing development and execution of their drought plans. The second meeting of this series will be held on February 27. This meeting will focus on critical dates in more detail. Dwayne Rice, Rangeland Management Specialist for NRCS in Lincoln, Kan., has worked with Ted Alexander, a Barber County rancher, to develop procedures to identify and describe critical dates and suggest how appropriate action steps are planned. Rice will explain how relation-

ships between historical records and forage growth are used to delineate critical dates. Alexander will discuss his experience in implementing his drought plan through several previous drought cycles. These meetings are sponsored by the National Drought Mitigation Center at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln. The series was developed with support from the Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education (SARE) program, which is funded by the U.S. Department of Agriculture National Institute of Food and Agriculture (USDA-NIFA). For more information please visit iGrow, contact your nearest SDSU Extension Regional Center or call Kalyn Waters at 605-8421267 orPete Bauman, SDSU Extension Range Field Specialist at 605-882-5140. Scheduled dates and topics for the series include: February 27: Avoiding Analysis Paralysis: Monitoring and Setting Critical Dates for Decision Making During Drought March 27: The New Cumulative Forage Reduction (CFR) Index: Assessing Drought Impacts and Planning a Grazing Strategy April 24: Using a Drought Calculator to Assist Stocking Decisions May 29: Economic Factors to Weigh in Making Decisions during Drought

Grace McKillip, a long time Jones County resident, is now in Philip. Her new address in Philip is: Grace Mckillip, Hans Peterson Memorial Hospital, Rm 4 503 W Pine St. Philip SD 57567 Ph.605859-2511. She is recuperating from a fall in her home. Julia Broeacher celebrated her 90th birthday. The card party group had cake for her after playing “chicken” dominos. Then she went to Tom and Jody Lebeda’s, where Betty and Russell Beck, Julia’s sister and husband from Pierre, shared some supper, cards and lots of visiting. Becks drove around town a bit on Saturday and were impressed with all the new construction all over town. Today (Monday) is Presidents’ Day, we have school today, but most other services are closed in order to honor all the past presidents. Which was your favorite? Messiah Ladies bible class was invited to Everett Zaugg’s this past Thursday to view his remodeling of the living room. He has redone it as a “man cave” or “den” and it is very nice; he has all his collections and books on display. Linda Daughters came to visit and served some delicious rolls from the bakery in Winner. After our Bible study we had a great time reminiscing and sharing. It was good to see Linda and catch up with her and hear what the boys are doing. Dalton is home working with his mom and dad, and Seth is finishing up college at SDSU. Seth played football for the Jacks. Dean and Deb Faber went to Sioux Falls on Friday for a doctor appointment. On Saturday they went to breakfast with Dean’s cousin, Tom and wife Gloria Faber. They were able to catch up on all the family news. Dean learned later that Phil Wolf and family were involved in a car accident and that Phil is in Sanford Hospital with a neck injury. He requested we keep them in our prayers. Isabelle Ellwanger, who is Virgil Stickler’s sister, passed away and her funeral was Monday. Virgil and Kathleen and all their family attended the funeral that was held in Pierre. Chuck Lebeda celebrated his birthday a week late with an icefishing outing with his kids, Lacy and friend Rory, and Jayden Randa, Sonya and Randy. Tom and Jody joined and then Chuck hosted a fish fry for all at his home. Melba Boysen was pleasantly surprised when grandson Brian Lanz stopped in for a visit on Friday. He lives in Scotland, S.D., and is working on a new ethanol plant in that area. Brian is in the National Guard and has been in Iraq and Afghanistan on deployments. Kayla Anderson went to Sturgis and met with the lady who started Bountiful Baskets. They had a meet and greet meeting and explained how they pick the fruit and veggies that are part of the baskets. If you want more information about the baskets you can call Kayla Anderson. Marie Tedrow had guests at her house last week. Granddaughter Angie and husband Mike Oberlander and twins stopped for a visit and treats. They were here for Norma Kinsley’s funeral. Mike sang a duet with Tara Kinsley during the funeral. The Lions held their last Bingo for now at the senior center and many people were in attendance. Ray Erikson was the blackout winner. It seemed like everyone there had a good time and will be looking forward to next year. Joyce and Raymond Roghair were dinner guests of Roger and Wanda Larson on Sunday. They then spent an enjoyable evening playing games and visiting.

Former Draperite Eva Louder, Rapid City, will be back in Draper at the local cafe on Saturday, February 23 to celebrate 99 years young. Come help her celebrate! Esther Magnuson hosted the Court Whist Card Club at her home last Wednesday afternoon. Prize winners were Dianne Marshall, Margie Boyle and Janet Louder. Esther served a yummy lunch of sandwiches, chips, dips, cheeses, meats and chocolate cake. Helen Louder, Lill Seamans, Lila Mae Christian, Margie Boyle and Janet Louder listened to the first and second graders read to them. As it was Valentine's Day all were a little hopped up and they still had more partying to do as I spotted cupcakes. After, all but Margie went to the home of Margaret Rankin for coffee and cookies and banana bread brought by Lila and Lill. It was a nice time. Had a call from Sylvia Fuoss and she told me that Marvin "Spike" Graber, 84, had passed away in Sioux Falls on February 12. Spike was a 1947 graduate of Draper High School. His dad, Jake Graber, was the superintendent here in the 40's. His sisters are Geraldine Nelson of Minneapolis and Beverly Klassen of Sioux Falls. We've seen Beverly and hubby a few times as they stopped and attended church on their way to the hills. Our sympathy to the family. Ellouise Ellwanger had her granddaughter, Bridget and hubby Matt Roeckes and baby Shaylee and nephew/great grandson Tanner here for a short stay, arriving last Monday and leaving on Wednesday due to the weather. Matt is in the guards and will be deployed soon. Ellouise got acquainted with two of her great grandkids, which was nice. Ray and Janice Pike visited Eldon and Esther Magnuson over coffee and cake Friday afternoon. On their return from Gregory at the Jones County vs. Gregory boys game on February 9 (which Jones County won), Audrey Mathews took hubby Philip out for supper at a local cafe to celebrate his ? birthday. Belated happy birthday, Philip. Andy, Jill and Riley Rankin hosted a birthday party for daughter/sister Peyton at their home Friday evening.

Our sympathy goes out to former Draperite Chuck Quick of Prairie du Chien, Wis., who just recently lost his sister. Gen Liffengren and daughter Jodee took in the ultimate indoor garage sale held Saturday at the event center at the fairgrounds in Rapid City. There were over 200 booths and lots and lots of people. But Gen did end up with a bargain, and it was an interesting day. Had a call from Melva Vik on Monday. Roger is still in Ft. Meade. Their anniversary was Valentine's Day, so Melva took a carry in lunch complete with strawberry dessert to him, and they were able to have lunch together. He would enjoy cards and calls. Eleanor Miller, Curt Miller and Kim Smith traveled to Ft. Meade on Saturday and called on Roger Vik. He is doing okay and seems to be in good spirits. Ray and Janice Pike visited Ellouise Ellwanger over coffee and cake last Wednesday afternoon. JP Carwin, Peetz, Colo., spent the weekend with his fiance, Sarah Dowling, at her home with parents Trace and Karen. Terri Pelle of Philip spent the weekend with parents Eldon and Esther Magnuson. Saturday morning they took in the junior high boys basketball game in Murdo vs. Kadoka. Nelva and Janet Louder spent Friday in Pierre. Janet kept an appointment. Later to Parkwood for coffee and visits with Joyce Nielsen, Lillian Severyn, Mona Sharp, Ken Halligan, Arlyne Brown, Darline Fuoss and others. From there we called on Alex and Jean Freier. I found out friend Bessie Husband's hubby, Joe, had fallen and broke a hip, so we stopped and saw them at the hospital. I got a call Sunday that Joe passed away on Saturday.

Following church Sunday, David and Lill Seamans went to Kennebec to the home of Chet and Teresa Hamer. There they helped with the sheep shearing project, followed with dinner and an afternoon of visiting. Casey Miller and Monica Reder visited Nelva and Janet Louder Saturday afternoon. They were there when Gerald and Wanda Mathews arrived, so they got in a visit with them as well. Casey and Monica left. The Mathews and Louders went out on the hill for supper, then back to the Louders and played cards. They topped the evening off with pumpkin pie (brought by Wanda) and coffee. Ellouise, Lonny and Patti Ellwanger attended the funeral services for Isabelle Ellwanger at the First Congregational United Church of Christ in Pierre on Monday. Lonny acted as pallbearer for his aunt. There were many friends and family in attendance. Following the service, a lunch and time of fellowship was held in the church parlor.

Marvin J. “Marv” Graber, 84, died Tuesday, February 12, 2013, at the Sanford USD Medical Center in Sioux Falls, S.D. Visitation was Friday, February 15, 2013, at Miller Funeral Home, with the family present. A funeral service was held Saturday, February 16, 2013, at the First United Methodist Church with burial in Hills of Rest Memorial Park. Marvin J.

by Pastor Ray Greenseth, Messiah/St. Paul Lutheran Churches
“And above all these put on love, which binds everything together in perfect harmony. And let the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, to which indeed you were called in one body. And be thankful. Let the Word of Christ dwell in you richly, teaching and admonishing one another in all wisdom.” Colossians 3:14-16 If you read Christian literature you may have read that the Church has fallen on hard times. (this isn't just Lutherans...it is most of the congregations in the US) Although some churches are doing real well in growth...most Christian congregations must confess that membership and attendance are suffering. Recently I came across an article that listed some reasons why almost 20% of Americans say they believe in nothing in particular and that “organized religion” is a dirty word. 1. Prominent Christian leaders said September 11 was God's punishment on America for sins committed. 2. Denominational confusion as to whether homosexuality is forbidden or acceptable. 3. The church is too judgmental, that is, condemning social and moral issues...(when Pastors teach and preach that certain practices going on in America is wrong...and others say it is acceptable. 4. The recession of 2007, closed the doors of many religious char-
in Jones County, S.D., while also working for the railroad. In 1951, Marv joined the U.S. Army, serving during the Korean Conflict. He was honorably discharged in 1953, having attained the rank of Sergeant. Marv then went on to attend Dakota Wesleyan and South Dakota State University. On August 21, 1954, Marv was united in marriage with Rachel Allard in Sibley, Iowa. He owned a general store in Marion. The couple moved to Sioux Falls in 1959, and Marv went to work for Roberts and Cook Insurance Company as a salesman. He remained there for 30 years, retiring in 1989. After retiring, Marv sold insurance on his own. Marv was an active member of First United Methodist Church, including singing in the choir and serving on various church committees. He was also a member of the American Legion. After serving as the president of the Lowell Elementary PTA, Marv was given an honorary lifetime membership. He enjoyed traveling, camping, and coin collecting. Marv also greatly enjoyed his grandchildren and his dogs. Grateful for having shared his life are his wife, Rachel of Sioux
Falls; four daughters, Lynne Laird and her husband, Jerry, of Rapid City, S.D.; Carmen Graber of Sioux Falls; Beth Rehurek and her husband, John, of Sioux Falls; Michele Walker of Vermillion, S.D.; eight grandchildren, Kasey Lanning and her husband, Nick; Tyler Hanson and his wife, Sarah; Jacob Laird and his wife, Lacy; A.J. Walker; Drew Rehurek; Jordan Laird; Kortni Walker; Matthew Rehurek; two great-grandchildren, Parker Lanning and Kinsley Lanning; two sisters, Geraldine Nelson and her husband, Gerald, of Minneapolis, Minn., Beverly Klassen and her husband, Delmar, of Sioux Falls; and a host of other relatives and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents. The family has requested that memorials be directed to the First United Methodist Church Foundation or the Memorial Committee.
Isabelle Ellwanger
Dale Valburg
Isabelle “Izzie” Ellwanger, 88, of Pierre, passed away February 12, 2013 at Golden Living Center. Funeral services were held on Monday, February 18, 2013 at
First Congregational United Church of Christ with visitation one hour prior. Inurnment will take place at a later date at Riverside Cemetery. Isabelle "Izzie" Ellwanger was born November 30, 1924 to Harley and Thelma (Johnson) Stickler at Stamford, S.D. She was the oldest of nine children. Izzie attended Hightshoe, Enright, Horseshoe Bend and Okaton High School. On May 11, 1946 she married William (Bill) Ellwanger and they made their home in Pierre, S.D. She was employed at the Okaton State Bank, was a teacher, a substitute teacher, ran her own daycare, was a Cub Scout leader, worked at a laundromat and did the books for their construction business. Izzie enjoyed spending time with her family and attending events of her children and grand-
ities... people were spending more money on themselves than giving to the LORD. You may even come up with your own list on how come church attendance is going down. As for me, I am part of a denomination that strives to condemn that which God condemns, which also encourages that which God wants to have advanced, and stays silent when the LORD does the same. Not everyone will see it that way in their own spiritual palate. Even so we need to do this in a loving way and harmonious and peaceful way...that others will see that God keeps His Word and all His promises. And what is His promise? The LORD has promised that the Word of Christ will be a rich blessing within in us, in our teaching, in our witness and ...this is the most important..even when we lovingly admonish and correct those who have wandered from the truth. We pray: Dear LORD, may I give thanks to You for a pastor, a church, which preaches Your Word. Now may that Word live within us and be shared by us. And, dear LORD, may our witness, our fellowship, and our admonishing always be done in love. This we ask in the Name of Jesus, whose every act and Word were done in love. Amen.

sions and in 1979 he was voted Citizen of the Year. Family always came first for Dale and this was proven time and time again through his patience, guidance and love. Friends and neighbors also knew that Dale would be there when called whether it was a midnight call as a country vet, branding, haying or just to have coffee. Dale touched the lives of many and a celebration of his life was held Sunday, October 21, 2012 in the Horsefly Community Hall. A memory album was created and stories and memories were shared. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or B.C. Lung Association would be greatly appreciated.

The Forgiveness Of Sins by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Some three thousand years ago, and about one thousand years before Christ, the Psalmist said: “If Thou, Lord, shouldest mark iniquities, O Lord who shall stand? But there is forgiveness with Thee…” (Psa. 130:3,4). The Psalmist did not explain, however, upon what basis a just and holy God could forgive a guilty sinner. This was to be proclaimed one thousand years later by the Apostle Paul, himself once “a blasphemer, and a persecutor and injurious”; the “chief” of sinners, but forgiven and saved by the infinite grace of God (Tim. 1:13-15). Preaching Christ at Antioch, in the province of Pisidia, Paul declared: “Be it known unto you therefore, men and brethren, that THROUGH THIS MAN IS PREACHED UNTO YOU THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS, AND BY HIM ALL THAT BELIEVE ARE JUSTIFIED FROM ALL THINGS, FROM WHICH YE COULD NOT BE JUSTIFIED BY THE LAW OF MOSES” (Acts 13:38,39). But even this does not fully answer our question, for we must still ask: On what basis does God forgive sins through “this Man”? The answer is: on the basis of His payment for our sins on Calvary’s cross. Thus the Apostle wrote to the Romans, explaining how we may be… “…justified freely by His [God's] grace, THROUGH THE REDEMPTION THAT IS IN CHRIST JESUS” (Rom. 3:24). Now, thank God, through Christ’s finished work, there is not a sinner who needs to remain unforgiven, for: “In [Christ] we have redemption, through His blood, THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS ACCORDING TO THE RICHES OF HIS GRACE” (Eph. 1:7).

lar characteristics dating back to 1200 or earlier. After the 1700s, the area was occupied by the Omaha, Ponca, Ioway and Oto, and it's believed that many tribes can trace their lineage back to the Oneota. The new State Park will be a place of great historical significance and cultural enrichment. It will not have any camping or overnight facilities. A special bipartisan medicaid expansion exploratory committee will be meeting and having hearings during the last weeks of the legislative session. The committee will be comprised of legislators from both the House and Senate Health and Human Service Committees. Individuals and groups advocating for the Medicaid expansion under the Affordable Care Act may be able to present their case to this group. Work and talk is still progressing regarding an economic development incentive plan to attract large business development into South Dakota. The plan could fit into House Bill 1161 which has passed the House State Affairs Committee or either Senate Bills 232 or 235 that have passed the Senate State Affairs Committee. This issue could likely go down to the last day of session before all parts of the plan can be agreed to by the legislature. I have had the privilege the past two weeks of having Raegan Arnoldy of Lyman County High School working as a Senate Page. Raegan was a natural at helping legislators with their day-to-day tasks and knows how to correspond and communicate well with others. I wish Reagan the best with her plans to attend college at the University of Nebraska. Legislative Crossover Day is next Wednesday. This is the date that all bills and joint resolutions need to pass the house of origin. For us in the Senate, we will now be hearing and debating House Bills. There are three weeks left of the 2013 Session. Please stay in contact. You can call the Senate Lobby at773-3821 and leave a message or email me at sen.lucas@state.sd.us.

2013 Legislative Updates
Rep. James Schaefer
J C FSA News
2013 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. To be eligible for NAP assistance, crops must be non-insurable crops and agricultural commodities for which the catastrophic risk protection level of crop insurance is not available.

from 2012, except that all eligible participants in 2013 may choose to enroll in either DCP or ACRE for the 2013 crop year. This means that eligible producers who were enrolled in ACRE in 2012 may elect to enroll in DCP in 2013 or may re-enroll in ACRE in 2013 (and vice versa). FSA will provide producers with information on program requirements, updates and signups as the information becomes available.
FARM SERVICE AGENCY ANNOUNCES IMPORTANT PROGRAM UPDATES The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Farm Service Agency (FSA) reminds producers that the American Taxpayer Relief Act of 2012 extended the authorization of the Food, Conservation, and Energy Act of 2008 (the 2008 Farm Bill) for many Commodity Credit Corporation (CCC) commodity, disaster, and conservation programs through 2013. FSA administers these programs. The extended programs include, among others: the Direct and Counter-Cyclical Payment Program (DCP), the Average Crop Revenue Election Program (ACRE), and the Milk Income Loss Contract Program (MILC). FSA is preparing the following actions: FSA will begin sign-ups for DCP and ACRE for the 2013 crops on February 19, 2013. The DCP signup period will end on August 2, 2013; the ACRE sign-up period will end on June 3, 2013. The 2013 DCP and ACRE program provisions are unchanged
REPORTING LAND AND OPERATIONAL CHANGES TO FSA Have you bought any land or sold any land? Will you be farming different land than you did in 2012? Have you worked with a financial advisor, attorney or other professional regarding your farmland to create a corporation, LLP, LLC, Trust or other entity? Does your new entity now own or operate farm land? Please report these and any other operational changes to FSA as soon as possible so that our records can be updated prior to any 2013 program signups. DATES TO REMEMBER/ DEADLINES: March 15: 2013 NAP Sales closing date June 3: 2013 ACRE sign-up ends July 15: 2012 ACRE Production July 15: 2012 NAP Production July 15: Final 2013 Acreage reporting date August 2: DCP sign-up ends
I received numerous emails this Session on Senate Bill 171, to make a felony law for animal cruelty. While the proponents of this proposal have a good humane cause, I believe individuals torturing animals need psychological help and treatment for their disorder. Acts of animal cruelty can be dealt with in our existing laws with fines and misdemeanor charges. SB 171 failed in the Senate Agriculture and Natural Resources Committee by a vote of 1 for and 8 against. Senate Bill 142, to ban texting while driving throughout South Dakota, was heard in the Senate Transportation Committee on Friday. After some of the most emotional testimony I have ever heard, the Bill passed out of Committee on a 5 to 2 vote. Senate Bill 197, proposed that the state aid payment for all students under open enrollment be the same when students go from large schools to small schools. Many school superintendents opposed the bill as it pitted one school against another and it failed in Senate State Affairs Committee on a 2 to 7 vote. Tribal Relations Secretary, “J.R.” LaPlante organized a delegation of Native Americans from outside of the state to speak in support of Senate Bill 186. SB 186 will designate the Good Earth State Park at Blood Run in Lincoln County as a new State Park. The Blood Run site, located eight miles southeast of Sioux Falls, borders Iowa and was used by thousands of Oneota Indians into the early 1700s.

January bow hunter education course certifies 17 new archers
Greetings! I appreciate the opportunity that we have had to share face to face and phone conversations these past six weeks of legislature. My comfort level with email is improving. Call any time 730-1990. A couple fast facts after completing 24 of the 38 legislative days: 492 bills introduced this session, 250 in the House and 242 in the Senate and 28 bills have been signed into law by the Governor. Crossover Day is Wednesday, February 20; all bills will be out of the chamber of origin. A Legislative Commemoration honoring Harold Thune and Jerald Applebee of Murdo for their individual accomplishments as well as their efforts and involvement with the Annual Jones County Invitational Basketball Tournament and a Legislative Commemoration honoring the memory of Don Hight were on the calendars of the House this past week. Rehabilitating the state-owned rail line between Chamberlain and Presho has had two hearings in Senate Appropriations. We had good representation to provide testimony for both hearings. The vote could take place on Tuesday, February 19. If you are following this, it is SB 208. Two education bills that compliment each other passed out of our education committee this week. SB 96 would allow schools with enrollments falling below 100 to become engaged in a collaborative
agreement, sharing resources with other schools and thus avoiding reorganization. Sixteen schools are presently involved in these Innovation Lab Schools. It passed unanimously. HB 1213 addresses the same challenge of schools falling below the 100-student enrollment, but it provides a reduced amount of state aid to education. For example if there were 92 students, they would receive 92 percent of the state aid. It gives them a 2-year window of back up before they are forced to consolidate. This passed in the House 56-11. I supported it. HB 1128, allowing home school students to qualify for the opportunity scholarship program at the same testing level benchmarks as public schools, passed as amended 37-32. The amendment changes the testing score from 28 to 26 for home school students. It is 24 for public school students. I voted aye. House Ag and Natural Resources had full agendas for both days. Two of the bills that passed by a narrow margin will be heard on the House floor this week: HB 1089, requiring statewide livestock brand inspection and HB 1228, giving producers the first chance to recover their loss when a grain warehouse or grain buyer defaults. I will be opposing both of these bills. HB 1093 allows the use of dogs to hunt mountain lions and the use of leashed dogs to track and retrieve wounded or presumeddead big game animals. It passed unanimously in committee and 67-1 on the House floor. $168,000 was unanimously voted to provide salary assistance to counties for their veterans service officers. Townships are now allowed to levy a capital improvement tax for highways, secondary roads, bridges, and culverts in addition to the levy that now exists. If they chose to do this, it cannot exceed 50 cents per $1,000 on taxes. I supported HB 1189, which passed the House 47-22. I oppose the bill coming this week that would increase expense allowances for legislators.

Saturday, January 26 saw a great crowd of future archery hunters gathering at the Jones County Sportsman Club. An 8 hour Bowhunter Education Course was presented with 17 new archers from around the state on hand to obtain their Certification. Keith Hespe, Instructor, and Greg Miller, assistant instructor shared information from as many aspects of Bowhunting as possible in the 8 hour allotment. From basic equipment knowledge, to how to safely climb a tree with tree stands was covered. Anyone wishing to hunt with Archery Equipment must have an certification. The National Bowhunter Education Foundation (NBEF) course has been adopted by the majority of states, and is the standard for today’s Bowhunters. Also on hand to help with the course were Harry Globstad and Scott Smallwood, Master Instructors, both from Rapid City.

Murdo Coyote Lookin’ Around
• Syd Iwan •
We recently got a blast from the past in the form of a letter from a German fellow who visited here some fifty years ago. The following is what he wrote to the “Dear Iwan Family.” Looking through boxes and bundles of paper, I came across the enclosed letter which actually should have reached you some 50 years ago. As you can see from the envelope, it traveled quite a bit around the world before its final dispatch now. It probably contains some photographs. Let me give you some background information. In 1961-62, I spent a year studying at Cornell University. Before returning to Germany, I decided to tour your county and Mexico. I had $250 of my own, and, according to the doctors at Cornell, being able to stand cottage cheese, a loaf of white bread, and one or two pints of milk every day for about 120 days should guarantee a healthy surviving. I hit the road at the beginning of June 1962. Hitchhiking was the means of my moving. On June 14, I asked the driver who gave me a ride to stop and drop me at the junction of the road from North Platte to the north. He asked whether I was sure because there would be “pretty much of not much.” When I told him I would not mind and that I wanted to see the Sandhills region, he mentioned that in about three days’ time he would return on the same route, and, if I was still around, he would pick me up again. This was not necessary. After a few hours, a really old vehicle stopped, picked me up, and gave me a lift. When they had to turn off west, I was alone again, surrounded by low sand dunes. For the next hours, the heads of cattle appeared, ruminating, looking at me for a few seconds, and then “submerging” again. Finally a car approached, stopped, and the driver bent over and asked, “What dropped you here, son? Where do you sleep?” When I answered that I had a sleeping bag and the roadside, he just answered, “You might be in for a surprise. This year we have unusual rainfall. You better jump in. We will find you a roof.” And thus, pretty near the middle of nowhere as I started to feel after all the hours of waiting and in a very silent surrounding, I learned to know Mr. Iwan, the driver. Driving for miles, then at road 16 turning to the west and leaving the highway at Stamford Store, entering a gravel road towards the south, and after another couple of miles turning around a corner, the day’s ride ended at your ranch. I saw several low houses and 10 or so men who, if I am not mistaken, were all the sons of the Iwan clan. In the evening, they asked me to join them for a beer. To my surprise, this was 30 or more miles away across the range. The next morning (June 15) very early and after a great breakfast in the darkness, all drove to the center of the ranch where I was “confronted” with a horse. I had never been near to such an animal and, after a few moments, I was on top of it, lifted up by two of the young men who had stood right and left of me. I followed their advice and stayed atop. The day passed by rounding up and branding cattle. I have to confess, if you had to make a selection on this day about who was the more useful farmhand, I myself would have had to vote definitely for the horse. It knew in advance where to move to bring the cattle together and just ignored my orders at the reins. In the evening, there was another beer, again some 15 or so miles across the ranch. This time it was towards the west. The next day I was not much able to move, not so much from the beer but from daylong range activities. On June 16, all went to a rodeo in the Badlands, and I was glad I didn’t have to join the performance but could watch from behind the fence. After these two great days, I hit the road again— Seattle, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Grand Canyon to name only some of my stops, and then Mexico and Yucatan. From there it was back to New York to catch the ship to Germany. You may ask, “What about the letter prepared for dispatch to you in the Philippines?” In 1963 and up to 1965, I went for research work to the southern Philippines. My base among the Muslims was the Dansalan Junior College in Marawi City. Somehow, the letter slipped in a heap of paper and turned up by chance just now. I do not want to extend this letter, but let me tell you. The stay at your ranch definitely gave me a great insight into life in the countryside, and it impressed me deeply. I just would like to thank you once more very much after 50

years. With best wishes, Klaus Hausherr. The letter contained a picture of the Stamford Store from a postcard plus five photos of a branding at our place. In one, I was holding the back leg of a calf for branding. I would have been between my
junior and senior years of high school. Also in the photos were Ted Vobr (who is still on the ranch,) my cousin Joe Iwan, and Jim Srb. The Mr. Iwan noted was my Uncle Harold (1899-1979.) A blast from the past indeed.

Just a reminder of the Crop and Livestock Workshop at the Jones County Courthouse in Murdo, beginning at 1:00 pm, Friday, March 1, 2013. In addition to the topics mentioned in last weeks’ column, plans are to also address management strategies to deal with cropland that has been damaged by fire. Call Bob Fanning at 842-1267 for more information. Fungicide Seed Treatments for Spring Wheat Crop & Livestock Workshop good start. Loose Smut and Common Bunt (also known as stinking smut) appear in some wheat fields every year. These are two pathogens for which proper fungicide seed treatments are very effective. It is strongly believed that Loose Smut and Common Bunt could be virtually eliminated if all wheat producers used recommended seed treatments. In general, seed treatments: aid in managing the biotic stresses, are effective only days to weeks (although new chemistry is promising longer periods of protection), are used as the principal insurance against pests, and help the seed and seedlings make it to the stage when they can make their own energy (get the seed up and out of the ground). Utilizing a seed treatment builds the foundation for a healthy plant. Healthy roots are the first step to building the yield potential you desire. Without that strong base, your yield potential is limited from the start and all other inputs become less valuable. Healthy seedling development promotes good stands and greater yield potential. Seed treatment has been and continues to be a very economic and effective disease management tool in South Dakota wheat production.

Fungicide seed treatments are used when planting many agricultural crops and are helpful in promoting stand establishment and seedling vigor. Seed treatments also help preserve yield potential and prevent quality losses in grain by preventing certain seed and soil-borne diseases. There are many pathogens found in the soil which cause seedling diseases and contribute to the root/crown rot complex in wheat. The root/crown rot complex can include one or more of the diseases, Common Root Rot, Fusarium Root Rot, Take-All, Rhizoctonia Root Rot, and Pythium Root Rot. These pathogens are always present in the soil at some level, waiting to take advantage of slow germination, slow early development, and unfavorable environment for wheat seedlings. These pathogens have similar symptoms and can cause poor overall health and vigor of the plant. These diseases often result in thin, uneven stands, spindly stalks, small spikes, empty/white heads, stunted plants, weak early growth, yellowing of foliage, and reduced yield and quality. The primary recommendation to avoid the effects of the root/crown rot complex is a diverse crop rotation which includes one or more broadleaf crops. The proper choice of fungicide seed treatments can also help protect the young seedlings and get them off to a
The Clinical View
Little appreciated by the general public is the question of bone health. We worry about heart disease, lung disease, cancer, strokes and high blood pressure. But one of the major medical complications that happen with aging is melting of a person’s bones. This contributes to fractures of the vertebra leading to the dowager’s hump, fractures of the hip which carry a 50 percent mortality in the next year, and fracture of the wrists that result from falling forward and catching oneself. In addition to the life-threatening aspects of these fractures, the misery they can cause is well worth preventing. Simple and inexpensive steps that a person can take include avoiding stairs as can be done, avoiding the use of throw rugs which can catch a person’s foot, and the use of night lights to avoid running into things in the dark. For the very elderly with greater infirmity, the use of a walker in and out of the home is highly recommended. Normal bone growth generally increases bone strength until about age 28. At that point there is HOW TO PREVENT FRACTURES IN ADULTS a change in the metabolism of bone. Normally a small amount of bone is eaten up every day by a cell called an osteoclast. This cell is involved in so called “remodeling” of the bone. A cell called an osteoblast comes along and lays down new bone in the tiny tunnels that the osteoclast has created. This is a normal maintenance reparative process that keeps bones strong. Until about age 28, more bone is laid down than is eaten up. But after that age on average, more bone is eaten up and removed from the body than is laid down by the osteoblast. The result of this is a slow progressive loss of bone mineral over many years and a disease called osteoporosis. The major risk factors for osteoporosis include low body weight, Vitamin D deficiency, calcium deficiency and little strain on the bones. Just as our muscle strain increases the muscle size, strain on a person’s bones makes them stronger also. So what are the steps that a person can take as an adult to prevent osteoporosis? There are 4 medical steps now recognized and recommended to prevent osteoporosis. The first of these is weight-bearing exercise within the person’s capability. The national

Joe Iwan
prescription for adults is walking 3 miles a day. Not everyone can do this but it is recommended that a person walk within their capability to maintain bone strength. The second step is to be sure that the person has enough Vitamin D. The use of a supplemental vitamin at 2000 units of Vitamin D-3 per day is recommended. For some individuals, more than this is necessary if Vitamin D deficiency is diagnosed. The third major consideration to protect a person’s bones is adequate calcium intake. The national recommendation is 1000 to 1200 milligrams of calcium per day. This is best divided up and taken 3-4 times a day as opposed to a single dose of 1000 milligram at one time. The last consideration for prevention of osteoporosis is an “antiresorptive agent”. The largest group of medications in this category is the bisphosphonates. These are drugs that slow down the osteoclastic activity of eating up the bone. This allows the osteoblasts to catch up and lay down more calcium in the bone. The first product on the market in this category was called Fosamax (alendronate) which came out in 1996. In the January 2013 issue of the American Journal of Medicine, there is a review of 16 years experience with this drug. They reviewed both the benefits and the complications that might occur. The conclusions are very easy. These drugs are highly effective in preventing osteoporosis and treating osteoporosis already established and in preventing fractures. They come in various forms including a once a week pill, a once a month pill and an intravenous preparation that is given once a year. The cheapest product is called alendronate which is provided as a pill taken once a week
on an empty stomach. The yearly cost of this is around $110.00 whereas the intravenous preparation given once a year costs as much as $1500.00. This family of drugs is highly recommended for women past menopausal age with documented osteoporosis or documented progressive loss of bone mineral expected to progress to osteoporosis. Over the 16 years these drugs have been on the market there have been a host of articles advertising how bad this family of drugs is. In my opinion, these articles are more attempts at medical terrorism. In fact, the risk-benefit ratio for this family of drugs in highly favorable. Accusations that the bisphosphonates family of drugs causes esophageal cancer and atrial fibrillation have been completely dispelled. There is no association of this side effect with the bisphosphonates. About one in thirteen hundred individuals will experience an abnormal fracture of the femur, but in the same number of people 80 fractures secondary to osteoporosis will be prevented. Rarely, the bisphosphonates can cause an infection in the jaw when dental work is done, but even this can be dealt with. In summary, osteoporosis is a condition well worth preventing and even more worth treating if once established. The article described above documents a 16 year experience demonstrating their effectiveness in preventing fractures. The healthcare providers at your local clinic are aware of the various considerations and alternative treatments available to treat osteoporosis. Anyone that has experienced a broken hip or a broken vertebrae or a broken arm will testify that prevention is a really good idea.
