Murdo Ranch Rodeo to include fun for all ages
Patriotism widespread in community for holiday
by Karlee Moore
The annual Murdo Ranch Rodeo
promises fun for all ages this year
with added events including a
mini-bronc ride and a boot and
candy scramble for the kids.
The ranch rodeo will take place
at the Murdo Rodeo Arena on Sat-
urday, July 20 at 5 p.m. with the
calcutta starting at 4:30 p.m.
Spectators and participants will
enjoy events such as: stray gather-
ing, a hide race, trailer loading,
candy and boot scrambles, and a
mini-bronc ride.
Teams entered this far include:
Newsam Angus Ranch, Steinke
Horse Shoeing, Rozen Hill and
Roghair Ranch. Up to ten teams
may enter the event and will have
a chance at a 100 percent payback
added purse.
Kevin Pinney of Philip, S.D. and
Dean Hawk of Rosebud, S.D. will
provide miniature horses for the
mini-bronc ride for children ages
7-14. All children entered will
receive a $5 concession ticket
sponsored by the Turner Youth
Foundation and the high point
ride in the mini-broncs will receive
a buckle sponsored by the Hill

A Top Hand Award sponsored by
the CJ Rea Ranch will be awarded
and first place jackets will be
given to the winning team. The

The annual event would not be
possible without the help of com-
munity organizations, community
sponsors and the ranch rodeo com-
mittee. The Turner Youth Founda-
tion will be providing concessions
for the event and the Murdo
Chamber of Commerce will again
be volunteering to take tickets at
the gate.
The Ranch Rodeo committee,
has been working hard to get the
event lined up, as well as making
improvements on the arena. With
the help of a donation from the
Chamber of Commerce, proceed-
ings from the ranch rodeo, and
other community donations, Lori
Waldron, Ranch Rodeo committee
member, said the arena will be
equipped with lights in the near
future making it easier for the
community to host other rodeo
events, better utilizing the facility.
Other rodeo sponsors include:
Cowboy Construction, Mike and
Lori Waldron, Rusty Spur, Pioneer
Country Mart, Newsam Angus
Ranch, Christopher Nix and
Donna and Kelly Green.

City discusses airport expansion,
city pool issues at July meeting
by Karlee Moore
Those present at the July
Murdo City Council meeting
included: David Geisler, Wayne
Esmay, Jay Drayer, Joe Connot,
Mike Jost, Matt Kinsley, Arnie
Waddell, Jerry Hatheway, Jay
Keever, Rod Senn, Madelyn Host,
Krysti Barnes and Karlee Moore.
The agenda and minutes were
approved and building permits
were discussed.
Farmers Union asked for an
easement for a fuel line, Mike Jost
asked for a building permit to
install a new garage door, Wanda
Olson submitted a permit to pour
a sidewalk, and David Venard sub-
mitted a permit to re-roof his
house on Main Street. All permits
were approved.
Host then approached the coun-
cil on behalf of the Jones County 4-
H Club. She asked that the council
consider allowing a pool party
after the 4-H Achievement Days
on Friday, July 19. In addition, she
asked permission to borrow the
city’s tractor for Achievement Days
events. The council granted her
requests and passed a resolution
to allow the pool party.
Senn, from KLJ Engineering
was next on the agenda and spoke
to the council about upcoming
updates to the city airport. He said
that in order to extend the runway,
the city would have to purchase
additional land on either side of
the runway.
Senn said the land was needed
for a safety zone, and stipulations
with the grant funding the project
said that no construction could
begin until said land is acquired.
Keever then addressed the
council about recent flooding
issues at the Murdo Housing com-
plex on Fifth Street. He reported
that his car had been flooded twice
recently when heavy rains went
through Murdo. Keever said dam-
age had been done to the vehicle
and wondered what he should do
about claiming insurance.
Hatheway said that there is
only an eight to 10 inch PVC pipe
in the water outlet for the housing
parking lot. Keever wanted to
know whose insurance would
cover the damage.
Vouchers were then approved,
and the council spoke about the
sheriff ’s report, although Sheriff
Weber was not present at the
meeting.
Barnes said she had received
lawn complaints recently and Con-
not suggested scheduling a meet-
ing with Sheriff Weber. He report-
ed witnessing 12 to 13 year old
children driving vehicles in town.
The council also discussed the fire-
works curfew, as fireworks were
heard in town long after the cur-
few during the days leading up to
the July 4 holiday.
The street report was next on
the agenda and Hatheway dis-
cussed the tennis court surface
with the council. It was agreed
that the court needed to be resur-
faced, and Connot suggested
bringing up the issue again at
budget time.
Connot also said maintenance
needed to be done on the streets.
He thought the streets should be
crack sealed, as the city needs to
take better care of the streets. He
also said he noticed that ditches
around town needed to be cleaned
out.
Erikson was absent from the
meeting, but the city pool was dis-
cussed among the council mem-
bers. It has been brought up that
there is little supervision at the
facility, especially during pool
breaks when life guards are swim-
ming.
Esmay suggested asking pool
manager Trait Thorne to attend
the next meeting. The council was
in agreement that changes needed
to be made at the swimming pool.
A recent incident involving a
prairie dog inside the gated facili-
ty and poor judgment among
guards was also discussed and
council members asked why an
incident report had not been
turned in. They requested that a
report be turned in during the
week of July 1.
Old business included the fenc-
ing of the industrial park. Brett
Nix agreed to pay for labor and
half of the materials if the city
would agree to covering the other
half of the material expenses.
It was discussed that the North
Dam hay bid went to Mike Barnes.
In addition, the council spoke
about a letter the city had sent to
the Ingalls family requesting pay-
ment of $15,126 for lawyer fees,
removal of building, dirt hauling,
and other expenses accrued during
the process of removing their
building on Main Street, that had
to be paid in full by July 1. Barnes
reported receiving the check,
which means that the lot still
belongs to the Ingalls family.
Barnes said that Terry Van Dam
from Murdo Ford had been in the
city office recently reporting water
running from the Ingalls lot under
his building.
New business included discus-
sion about replatting land belong-
ing to Butch Iversen behind the
Dakota Mill and Grain Building
before the conclusion of the meet-
ing.

Murdo family dentistry practice
by Karlee Moore
Dr. Aaron Rumpca, Pierre
native and 2013 graduate of the
University of Nebraska, has
recently joined Dr. Jim Szana in
practicing family dentistry at the
Murdo Dental Clinic.
In addition to Rumpca, the
practice also gained a new dental
assistant. Jennifer Strait of rural
Mellette County started training
with Rumpca July 9.
Rumpca completed his under-
graduate degree at South Dakota
State University, majoring in biol-
ogy. He went on to complete grad-
uate school at the University of
Nebraska. Rumpca was employed
by Szana as an assistant in his
Pierre office in previous years.
He grew up in central South
Dakota and said, “I am excited to
be part of a small community.”
Rumpca said that he is ready to
start seeing and educating
patients about the importance of a
healthy mouth for their overall
health and well being.
Szana said, “I am happy to wel-
come Aaron to our practice.”
The team looks forward to con-
tinuing on with dentistry for the
entire family, including orthodon-
tics.
To schedule an appointment
with Rumpca, call the Murdo Den-
tal Clinic at 669-2131. He is seeing
patients in Murdo every week,
Tuesday-Thursday and will
expand his hours to include Fri-
days during the school year.
God bless America… A large flag was displayed on Mel Kessler’s shed east of Murdo, visible from the highway, in honor of the 4th of July. Kessler has made
this a yearly sighting.

Bill and Ellen Valburg celebrated
their 50th wedding anniversary at
the ranch south of Draper June 29.
Arriving on July 27 were Jack and
Connie Belmain of Alexandria,
Minn.; Ed Bashor of Rea, Mo.; Net-
tie Shook and Tom and Steven
Edmonds of Denver, Colo. Daughter
Kristi, Jeff and Walker Vlietstra
picked up Will Vlietstra and Brice
Kilpatrick at Victory Bible Camp
southwest of Ft. Pierre and came on
down Friday afternoon. Also arriv-
ing on Friday were Harry and Mar-
ilyn Bartel of Houghton, Kan.; Don
Aamons of Hoxie, Kan.; and Cathy
Winter from Burlington, Colo.; Den-
nis and Ireta Schant and Gary and
Joan Kolterman of Onaga, Kan.;
Ken and Gloria Reed of Jasper,
Minn.; Val and Marie Valburg from
Gold Canyon, Ariz.; Tom Payne of
Montevideo, Minn.; and Chris and
Julie Nelson and Grant of Brandon
Valley, S.D., who arrived in their
camper. Bill and Cindy Valburg,
Chad, and Jared Johnson and
Mandy Peterson of Brookings joined
the group for supper, after which
family pictures were taken. The
remainder of the evening was spent
shooting off fireworks. Saturday
morning, Pastor Rita and Karl
Weber drove in from Sioux Falls--
because Pastor Ray Greenseth was
performing a wedding in Philip that
evening, Pastor Rita started the fes-
tivities with a worship service that
night. Rita, who turned blind two
weeks after they were married,
befriended Bill and Ellen when Bill
was in the Sioux Falls Hospital for
three months in 2010 after a semi
truck hit and ran over him. On Sat-
urday morning Jerry and Priscilla
Weeldreyer of Parker came in their
fifth wheel; Don and Ardie Zimble-
man of Fullerton, N.D.; Gordon and
Lorraine Kolterman of Buckeye,
Iowa; Dr. John and Julie Heilman of
Rapid City, S.D., and Bill and Mar-
garet Bunger of Upton, Neb. Later
in the day Ellen’s cousin, Pat (Iwan)
and Gary Jones of Huron, S.D., flew
in as did Rob and John Koskan of
Wood, S.D. All of the above except
the Webers, Billy Valburg’s, and the
fliers spent the night at the ranch or
neighboring lodges. Everyone left on
Sunday except The Valburg’s from
Arizona, Bungers from Nebraska
and Ed Bashor of Missouri. The
Bungers and Valburg’s departed
Monday morning and Ed left for
home on Tuesday. Saturday evening
approximately 150 guests enjoyed a
BBQ pulled beef supper prepared by
Susan Weber, assisted by Dutch
Sherwood of Wood. Don Aamons
provided the dance music. The
cakes were provided by Marilyn
Iverson and Janet Louder, and the
decorations were done by Missy Val-
burg, Kristi Vlietstra and Julie Nel-
son. Little Jack Hoffman’s (who ran
the 69 yd. touchdown for the
Nebraska Huskers football team
that many of you saw on TV last
April) grandparents, Gary and
Karen Hoffman of Spencer, Neb.,
updated us on Jack’s latest MRI of
his brain tumor cancer. In place of
gifts, over $1,000 was donated to be
added to “TeamJack” research for
pediatric brain cancer. They’ve been
using the same treatment since
1985, so hopefully they will discover
a new treatment for these children.
Bill and Ellen Valburg enjoyed
the Fourth of July at Vivian, S.D.,
on Thursday. Ellen was one of the
judges for the talent show that
evening. On Saturday, they helped
Frenchy Authier of Vivian celebrate
his 90th birthday.
How was everyone's 4th of July?
Nelva and Janet Louder went to
Vivian and took in the festivities
there. They looked at the display of
cars – some very pretty and shiny
ones. They had cake as Orville Hall
was celebrating his 75th birthday.
They got in lots of visiting, even a
visit with a neighbor out of Janet's
past, Gene DuVall and his wife from
Washington. They were on their
way to Minnesota to a DuVall
reunion. Janet went to school with
his sister, Reba. Gene was too young
for school then. This school was
south of Vivian/Draper back in the
"olden days"! Then it was time to
eat. The beef sandwiches were very
good. Everyone brought salad or
dessert or both, so wow, what a vari-
ety. From there to the park for the
talent show. It was so nice sitting
there. There was lots of talent com-
ing from as far away as Sioux Falls,
maybe further. Our own Becky
Bryan also sang a couple of songs,
accompanying herself on her Grand-
ma Elenora Hulce's guitar – which
had played there before as Elenora
was part of the "Groovy Grannys".
One of the highlights was when they
called their WWII vets Palmer
Strom, 97; Frenchy Authier, 90; and
Dave Moore, 88, up front and hon-
ored them for their service to our
country. All in all a good 4th of July.
Alice and Bob King of Cedar
Rapids, Iowa, and Orlo and Evelyn
Shervem of Presho were visitors and
dinner guests of Ray and Shirley
Vik on July 3. Alice, Shirley and
Orlo are sisters and brother.
Belated happy anniversary on
July 2 to former Draper residents
Russell and Janet Hurst of
Lakeville, Minn.
Family members of the late Lyle
and Grace Moore met at a camp-
ground near Omaha from Thursday
through Sunday, June 27-30. Those
present were Wilma Ahlers of Flan-
dreau and her family, Lila Mae
Christian and her family and also
cousins of their late Uncle Stub
Moore were there.
Joyce Hammond of Windsor,
Colo., spent June 30 and July 1 in
Rapid City with brother Dick Roush
and wife Addie. She accompanied
the Roush's to a couple of Post 22
games. She visited cousin Maris
Dickey and also saw her grand-
daughter, Kylee and Jeff Mulz and
baby McKenna. On Tuesday she
came to Murdo to surprise sis
Ellouise Ellwanger. Guess who got
surprised? Joyce, as Ellouise was in
Pierre. So onto Draper for a visit
with Nelva and Janet Louder. Rosa
Lee Styles also came. Later she
went to Ellouise's. On Wednesday
visitors of Ellouise and Joyce's were:
Rosa Lee Styles, Margie Boyle, Jan-
ice Pike and Sandy Zibell, Dorothy
Louder and Susan Hamer. Joyce left
on Friday and went back to the
Roush's in Rapid City and back
home to Windsor on Sunday. It was
nice seeing her – too bad she didn't
stick around longer.
Tim and Sandy Zibell of Wann,
Okla., arrived at the parental Ray
and Janice Pike home on Tuesday of
last week. On the 4th the group
went to Tim's sister, LeEtta and
Carl Shaffener's home north of
Pierre for dinner. His mom, Marge,
and many other family members
were there. Tim and Sandy stayed
over. The Pike's came home and
then to Murdo to watch the fire-
works.
As Tim and Sandy Zibell had
horses with them, they went out to
Bob Rankin's on Sunday afternoon
and gave all six of Bob's grandkids
rides, which they thoroughly
enjoyed. There for the fun time
were: Bob Rankin; Ray and Janice
Pike; Andy, Jill, Riley and Peyton
Rankin; Kati, Drew, Mallory and
Tenley Venard; Tyler, Chelsee, Addi-
son and Joey Rankin. Later they all
gathered at the Pike's for supper.
Fred and Mary Mathews joined
friends from Epiphany at West
Bend on Wednesday evening of last
week for a time of camping and fish-
ing. They returned home on Friday
after a fun time and successful fish-
ing.
Kris and Dick Bradley spent Sat-
urday with Margaret and Greg
Rankin. Karen Authier spent the
4th and a few days in Colorado with
son Michael and wife Jen. She
stopped in Sunday at Marg and
Greg's. I do know Greg turned over
another year on Friday. Belated
happy birthday, Greg. I didn't find
out if he celebrated.
Rosa Lee Styles took in the Ft.
Pierre 4th of July parade. They she
went back to Vivian and met daugh-
ter Margie and checked out the
antique cars. Later they took in the
Draper potluck supper.
On Saturday Rosa Lee Styles
drove to White River and joined
other Master Gardeners to the
Nancy Storm ranch near the
Nebraska border for lunch and a
meeting.
Sunday evening supper guests of
Gerald and Wanda Mathews were
Tom and Miranda Ellington of Sioux
Falls.
Recently Helen Cromwell became
a resident at Maryhouse in Pierre.
At the present time Don Cromwell
is staying with his daughter, Deb
Haka, near Ft. Pierre as he waits for
an apartment in Ft. Pierre to move
into. I talked to Robin Cromwell and
she said her dad stays busy and
does a lot of fishing. The Cromwell's
came to Jones County in 1921.
There have been several over the
years, and now Robin is the only one
left here. We're glad to have her. On
the 4th Robin was one of the many
judges at the antique car show in
Vivian. From there she traveled to
Chamberlain and joined daughter
Jessica and grandkids Aubrey and
Forrest to watch fireworks.
I understand that Jody Lebeda is
in Sioux Falls undergoing medical
tests. Our get well wishes go out to
her.
Wilma Ahlers of Flandreau
arrived at Lila Mae Christian's on
July 3. They took in Vivian's 4th of
July. On July 5 the Clickner family
brought the cremains of Nadine
Clickner Howder, Calif., back to be
buried in the Vivian Cemetery
beside her husband, Jim Howder.
Since this was the year for the Dun-
lap family reunion, a dinner was
held at the Vivian Lutheran Church
with approximately 70 in atten-
dance coming from Washington,
Iowa, North Dakota, Pennsylvania,
Nebraska and South Dakota. A
memorial service was Nadine was
held at the church. Lila Mae reports
that Jim and Nadine had been beau-
tiful singers and their three chil-
dren and families carried on as they
sang at the service. It was a beauti-
ful and comforting service.
Ron Lebeda and Holly took in the
4th of July parade in Ft. Pierre.
That evening they attended the
Murdo fireworks display. On Friday
Ron and Holly took their camper
and went to Rosebud to the pow-
wow, returning home on Sunday.
Following the Vivian talent show
on July 4 Eldon and Esther Magnu-
son and Gerald and Wanda Math-
ews visited and played a couple
hands of cards at Nelva and Janet
Louder's.
Following church Sunday Ray
and Janice Pike, Tim and Sandy
Zibell, Pastor and Jane Hazen, Lila
Mae Christian, Wilma Ahlers, Glen-
na Moore, Rosa Lee Styles, Nelva
and Janet Louder had dinner
together in Murdo. The rain hit just
as we finished. Wow! Did it ever
come down – lots of it. Back at Drap-
er we only got under an inch. Every-
one but Rosa Lee, Nelva and Janet
braved the wet and left. They sat
and watched it pour and visited
Joyce Brunskill and Bob Thune. It
was a good visit so it all worked out.
Kati Venard was pleasantly sur-
prised Saturday evening when her
family took her to Andy and Jill
Rankin's for a cookout being held for
her aunt, Sandy and Tim Zibell. But
actually it was a surprise 30th
birthday party for her! The party
was a little early but the family got
her surprised. Happy 30th, Kati.
There were many Rankin and
Venard family members and friends
in on the "big" surprise. There was
even a birthday cake.
Jill Rankin, Riley and Peyton
camped at Oahe over the 4th of July.
Andy joined them part of the time.
On Saturday Carmen and Karis-
sa Miller and Penny Dowling spent
the day in Pierre doing a little shop-
ping and took in a movie to cele-
brate Carmen's birthday. Back to
Draper and Ken, Clayton and Becca
joined the group for supper topped
off with a birthday dessert. Happy
birthday, Carmen.
Kim and Tony Schmidt spent a
few days in Aberdeen with Kayla
and Jeremy Hoag and family last
week.
Ted and Bev Nies camped at the
campground near 1880 Town Friday
through Sunday. They toured the
town a couple of days.

per guests of Eldon and Esther Mag-
nuson. They were on their way
home to Pierre after spending the
4th of July rock climbing in the
hills.

sell and Mary Pierce of Yankton.
Saturday evening the above group
along with the Pierce's sons: Tim
and family of Orlando; Jim and fam-
ily of West Palm Beach; and Ken

church at the UMC. In the after-
noon Russell and Mary renewed
their vows. At their wedding, Rus-
sell's late Uncle Pastor Kenneth
Rice officiated; on this day, his son
Pastor Dan Rice officiated. Fifty
years ago Mary's late sister was
maid of honor, bridesmaids were a
college friend and June, and Joni
Hunt was the flower girl. Best man
was Richard, with Brett filling in for
the groomsman not there. This time
Joni didn't carry flowers. All stood
with them as they renewed their
vows. The open house followed in
the church basement with cake and
other goodies. Happy 50th anniver-
sary, Russell and Mary.
It was nice having Carol Cressy,
her sis Colleen Anna and two grand-
daughters from the East Coast,
along with Julie Horsley and Cathy
Horsley in church Sunday at Drap-
er. Colleen and family have been
here for awhile as her husband,
Bob, passed away. He was brought

Cemetery. While here she was able
to attend her niece's wedding and
has been able to spend quality time
with family.

Our reporter of local news,
Jody Lebeda, was scheduled
for open heart surgery in
Sioux Falls on Tuesday morn-
ing, July 9, at about the time
we went to press. Your prayers
for her quick recovery and
good health are coveted.
Thank you.
Thinking of you, Jody.
Speedy recovery. Clarice, Kar-
lee and Lonna
Marty and Cristen Roghair and
family hosted the annual Okaton
Sunday School Picnic on the
evening of the Fourth of July.
After a fast-moving storm, the
weather was beautiful for the pic-
nic as folks gathered from the com-
munity to celebrate the holiday
with thanksgiving for the free-
doms we still enjoy in the USA.
Nichole Roghair shared pictures
and testimony of the past year,
which she spent the most of in
Mexico, living and working with
missionaries, teaching, running a
library and learning to love Mexi-
can cuisine. She plans to return to
Oaxaca the first part of Septem-
ber.
Roger and Wanda Larson and
granddaughter Maria visited at
Mel's Place after church and Sun-
day school last Sunday. Mel and
Clarice joined the Larsons for
some bass fishing at a stock pond
in Larson's pasture. Supper
included batter-fried bass.
Mel Roghair drove north to the
Isabel country to spend a couple
days with his sons, Brice and Lon-
nie, and their families. Lonnie's
youngest daughter, Alli, was
scheduled to see a specialist after
a local exam revealed what
appeared to be a broken shoulder.
No further report available at this

Are You Sure?
by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Would you like to have the knowledge, the assurance and the joy of sins forgiven? Would you like to be sure of heaven?
Well, the first step to heaven is to realize that you cannot get there by trying. You can’t walk there. You can’t climb there. You can’t fly there. Only God
can take you there. Many try to earn heaven. They try to climb there on a ladder of good works. They talk about “adding another rung.” But look out for
that good works ladder! It’s not anchored at the top and the higher you climb the farther you will fall.
God’s Word says that salvation is “the gift of God, not of works, lest any man should boast” (Eph. 2:8,9). He is not going to have boasters in heaven —
there are enough of them on earth and nobody likes them.
All of us should realize that even the best of us are not good enough for heaven, for “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God” (Rom. 3:23),
but in this same statement the Apostle Paul declares that believers in Christ, who died for our sins, are “justified freely by His [God's] grace, through the
redemption that is in Christ Jesus” (Rom. 3:24).
“Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ” (Rom. 5:1).
So, friend, it is not by trying, or crying, or praying, or paying, or doing anything that you will reach heaven: it is only by believing. God says He loves
sinners, and that Christ died for our sins. Will you believe this and trust Christ as your Savior? The terms are stated very plainly in John 3:35,36:
“The Father loveth the Son and hath given all things into His hand. 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.”

“And when day came, he called his
disciples and chose twelve of them,
whom he also named apostles:
Simon, whom he named Peter, and
his brother Andrew, and James, and
John, and Philip, and Bartholomew,
and Matthew, and Thomas, and
James son of Alphaeus, and Simon
who was called the Zealot, and Judas
son of James, and Judas Iscariot, who
became a traitor.” (Luke 6:13-16)
We as the church are called to be
“change-agents” out in the world.
Change sometimes involves taking
risks. We know that the risks we take
for God in the name of Jesus Christ,
will always work out for good. But,
change still comes hard for most
folks. Some of us, though, myself
included, can be rather zealous in our
desire for change. We want change to
happen “right now” or “as soon as
possible.” Sometimes we have to be
told to calm down in our zeal for
change. Webster’s dictionary defines
“zeal” as “to be excited, intense
enthusiasm, as in working for a
cause, ardent endeavor or devotion;
ardor, fervor.” In other words, we can
become so intense we can be a little
like Simon the Zealot whom Jesus
chose as one of His disciples.
The followers of the Zealots were
those of a “radical political and reli-
gious sect in ancient Palestine who
openly resisted the Roman rule.”
Simon the Zealot wanted the Romans
to be thrown out of the country “right
now,” and in place of Roman rule, a
desire that the Savior, Jesus Christ
would be the King in Palestine. The
dream was to have another Golden
Age like that experienced under King
David.
As a Zealot, Simon would have
fought to the death to make sure that
Jesus would become ruler and king,
and perhaps he and the other disci-
ples ruling alongside Jesus. Can you
imagine Jesus and the other disciples
telling Simon to hold down his enthu-
siasm and “cool it for awhile,” at least
until the time when the world would
truly be ready for change? When the
time was right, and Jesus felt they
were ready, all of the disciples would
be “change-agents” out in the world.
In order for us to be change agents
today, we also must be open and will-
ing to change for the sake of Jesus
Christ.
Recently, at our Annual Conference
in Bismarck, ND, I learned some
new things to try in the local
church. I would like to make these
“changes” to make the church bet-
ter. Hold me down in my enthusi-
asm, because I would like to make
these changes happen “right now,”
or “as soon as possible.” Then, I am
reminded of the astronauts who
stepped foot on the moon forty-four
years ago and how things changed,
“that’s one small step for man, one
giant leap for mankind.”
A friend and colleague of mine,
who is also in the ordained min-
istry, understands my “zeal for
change.” He told me perhaps I need-
ed to “cool it.” He reminded me that
in order to make change happen in
the church, I should not attempt it
alone. He said I need to work in
ministry together with the people in
the church. Those steps toward
change need to be “baby-steps,” and
not “one giant leap.” So, “change”
will happen, gradually. Change is
gonna happen, just not as fast as I
would like. But, that’s okay. And,
when I think about it, my friend,
who has been in the ministry longer
than I, may be on to something.

2012 NAP & ACRE
PRODUCTION DUE JULY 15
Producers must annually pro-
vide the quantity of all harvested
production of the crop in which
the producer held an interest dur-
ing the crop year. We have sent
out the “NAP Yields” form and
CCC-658 form which lists your
acres and a spot for you to record
your production. The deadline for
reporting this production is July
15, 2013. Production reporting is
required for all 2012 crops on
farms with NAP coverage or
enrolled in ACRE as applicable.
FAILED CROPS NEED
TO BE REPORTED
Failed acreages must be report-
ed within 15 days of the disaster
event and before disposition of the
crop. Filing an accurate acreage
report for all crops and land uses,
including failed acreage and pre-
vented planting acreage, can pre-
vent the loss of benefits for a vari-
ety of programs. Acreage reports
are required for many Farm Serv-
ice Agency programs. All acreage
reports are to be certified by the
July 15, 2013 deadline.
Acreage reports on crops for
which NAP assistance may be
paid are due in the county office
by the earlier of July 15, 2013 or
15 calendar days before the onset
of harvest or grazing of the specif-
ic crop acreage being reported.
DATES TO REMEMBER/
DEADLINES:
July 15: 2012 ACRE Production
July 15: 2012 NAP Production
July 15: Final 2013 Acreage
reporting deadline
August 1: COC Nomination peri-
od ends
August 2: DCP sign-up ends

2013 CROP ACREAGE
REPORTING DEADLINE
FAST APPROACHING
If you are done planting your
2013 crops, please contact the
office for an appointment to certify
your planted acreage on your
farm(s). You will need to delineate
the field(s), list the crop planted,
planting dates, acres of the crop,
intended use, and share(s). If you
have either prevented planted or
failed crop acreage, this will also
need to be reported. The deadline
for crop acreage reporting is July
15, 2013. An accurate crop report
is important with the cross compli-
ance between FSA and Federal
Crop Insurance. Crop reports are a
requirement to remain eligible for
most FSA Programs.

The Value of Disease
Resistance
During a recent session of col-
lecting wheat samples for disease
analysis with SDSU Small Grains
Pathologist, Shaukat Ali, and Ag
Research Manager, Rick Geppert,
we found a field containing signifi-
cant leaf rust. A quick phone call to
the producer revealed that the
field was planted to a variety
known for desirable characteris-
tics he considered important for
that field, but not resistance to
leaf rust.
The producer knew the variety
was susceptible to leaf rust,
planned to make a fungicide appli-
cation, and did, but not before
there was some level of infection.
We made visits to several other
fields in the area and found little
or no leaf rust.
In this time of relatively high
commodity prices and the proven
effectiveness of fungicides, fungi-
cide applications have become
somewhat commonplace. For some
producers it’s not a question of
whether they will apply a fungi-
cide to their wheat, but when,
which product, and/or how many
times.
This raises the question of the
value to today’s farmers of the
efforts of pioneers in wheat breed-
ing like Norman Borlaug and
Edgar McFadden, who developed
wheat varieties with resistance to
rust. After hearing multiple
research reports citing the effec-
tiveness of fungicide applications
at a meeting in the past year, I
somewhat facetiously asked the
question, is disease resistance still
valuable? The answer, which I
expected, is obviously, yes.
For most of the fields we sam-
pled on the day referred to earlier,
resistance to leaf rust was working
well, and could very well make a
fungicide application unnecessary.
While leaf, stripe and stem rust
are currently all confirmed to be
present in South Dakota this year,
many wheat fields remain rela-
tively free of those diseases. This
lack of disease is partly due to the
lack of rain many areas have been
experiencing, but also to the
resistance bred into the varieties
planted in those fields. If wet
weather does prompt fungicide
applications, the disease resist-
ance provides some of the protec-
tion as no fungicide is 100 percent
effective, can be applied at the
ideal time, or lasts long enough to
keep the plants completely free of
infection.
Questions are still coming in as
to whether fungicide applications
can still be made to wheat fields.
At least in south-central South
Dakota, about all of the spring and
winter wheat fields are in the milk
stage or later, well past the labeled
time for fungicide applications.
The good news is, once wheat is at
the hard-dough stage, which isn’t
far off, late-season disease infec-
tions will no longer be harmful.

Problems with Eastern
Red Cedar 2013
by Nathan Kafer
The eastern red cedar to most is
considered to be the superman of
trees. Cedars are considered
impermeable in most areas but
things have changed here in 2013.
Due to the last three years of envi-
ronmental conditions all trees
have become stressed. When trees
get stressed, even cedars, insects
and diseases can emerge and can
eventually kill trees. These insects
and diseases are called secondary
attackers, which have emerged
more this year due to the past two
years of high moisture, dry win-
ters and drought. Secondary
attackers are usually, but not
always, present on the trees. How-
ever, if trees get stressed they
emerge and start to affect the
trees in a negative way. With the
eastern red cedar trees, there are
two main secondary attackers,
Cedar Bark Beetle and Juniper
Blight.
The cedar bark attacks both
rocky mountain juniper and east-
ern red cedar. The symptoms are
individual twigs wilt, die, and
break off, occasionally this can
affect the entire tree. You will also
see small holes on the trunk of the
trees with galleries beneath the
bark. The control for cedar bark
beetle is removal and burning of
infested branches or trees. In addi-
tion you can treat by applying an
insecticide with the active ingredi-
ents Carbaryl or Permethrin by
early June that is labeled for bark
beetles. You need to treat the
trunk and all branches that are
one inch or larger.
The other disease problem is
juniper t blight which is one of
three types of fungi. Juniper blight
is either a Phomopsis fungi, Cer-
cospora fungi, or Kabatina fungi.
Cercospora symptoms occur in the
late summer with the oldest nee-
dles on the lower inside branches
turning bronze or red and the
symptoms are limited to the nee-
dles. Phomopsis and Kabatina
fungi affect shoot tips which turn
yellowish brown to red and then
eventually become brown. Kabati-
na symptoms occur on new growth
in April and May with the brown
tissue dropping in June. Phomop-
sis symptoms occur during the
growing season from May to Sep-
tember. Control for the Cercospo-
ra fungi is by applying the active
ingredient Copper three times.
Once in mid-June, early July and
mid-July. However, Cercospora is
not a common disease. Phomopsis
fungi can be treated with the
active ingredient Copper or Pro-
priconazole at 14-day intervals
beginning in mid-May and contin-
uing until the growing ceases or
dry weather begins. There is not
an effective control for Kabatina
fungi as it will enter through a
wound, and infection occurs in the
autumn. With juniper blight, it is
recommended to have a profes-
sional look at your trees to obtain
the correct diagnoses. Samples
however, may need to be sent in so
that the diagnosis is confirmed.
With most tree problems pre-
vention is always the best. But
when it comes to environmental
issues not much can be done. How-
ever by watering and mulching
your trees they can have a better
chance of staying stress free and
healthier.
Farm Beginnings class helps kickstart new operations
After four successful years
training new farmers on the east-
ern side of the state, Dakota Rural
Action’s Farm Beginnings® course
is moving west and will be offered
in Rapid City this year. Farm
Beginnings is a farmer and ranch-
er-led training and support pro-
gram that provides participants
the opportunity to learn first-hand
about low-cost, sustainable meth-
ods of farming and ranching and
the tools to successfully launch a
profitable enterprise.
“We are very excited to be mov-
ing the Farm Beginnings course to
Rapid City so other aspiring farm-
ers and ranchers may be given a
chance to live out their dreams of
living off the land,” said course
graduate and farmer Aaron John-
son, who also serves on the pro-
gram’s steering committee. John-
son is now a partner at Johnson
Farms, an organic grain operation
near Madison, S.D.
Farm Beginnings participants
can be of any age, do not need to
currently own land, and come from
wide range of experiences and
farming and ranching interests.
Nearly 40 families have enrolled
in the course over the last four
years and 83 percent of graduates
are currently engaged in farming
activities (only 30 percent reported
involvement in farming activities
before taking the class).
“Farm Beginnings was the
launching pad we needed to get
started,” said Anne Hauglid,
farmer and course graduate. “Our
success as JHA Farms stemmed
from our experience with the class.
We went from zero farm income to
over $21,000 gross sales last year
for our broiler and egg business.
We’re looking to increase that this
year. If it hadn’t been for Farm
Beginnings we wouldn’t be raising
chickens successfully today.”
Farm Beginnings classes are
held November to March and focus
on topics such as whole farm plan-
ning, financial and business plan-
ning, marketing, and connecting
with resources and mentors. All
classes are led by established
farmers and ranchers and agricul-
tural professionals. There are
opportunities for students to fur-
ther their skills by participating in
mentorships with local farmers
and 4-6 field days are offered
through Dakota Rural Action’s
Farmer Network in the summer.
Over eighty-percent of course
graduates participate in these on-
farm activities after finishing the
course.
Danny Dyck of Worthing, S.D.,
completed the course and followed
up with an internship where he
gained the production skills neces-
sary to for him and his wife to
launch their own CSA, Deep Root
Gardens, which is now in its sec-
ond season of production. Said
Dyck, “I've found Farm Begin-
nings and the Farmer Network to
be indispensable tools for connect-
ing to other local farmers, informa-
tion, and hands-on skill-building
workshops. I am always looking to
see what kind of valuable info the
Network will provide me with
next.”
Prospective participants should
contact Dakota Rural Action at
605-716-2200 or email Program
Coordinator Heidi Kolbeck-
Urlacher at heidiku@dakotarur-
al.org. Class size is limited and
early application is encouraged.
Application deadline for the 2013
Rapid City class is October 18.
There are a limited amount of
scholarships available to help with
tuition costs. Course information
and online application can be
found at www.dakotarural.
org/farmbeginnings.
Farm Beginnings® is an estab-
lished curriculum developed over a
decade ago by the Minnesota-
based Land Stewardship Project
that is now replicated in several
different states, including Ill.,
Neb., N.D., and N.Y. Dakota Rural
Action has adapted the curriculum
to meet the needs of South Dakota
farmers and ranchers. The project
is supported by the Beginning
Farmer and Rancher Development
Program of the National Institute
of Food and Agriculture, USDA,

twelve cups of flour. That would
make three-dozen buns. Now I’ve
become sort of lazy and throw the
ingredients in a bread machine
and let that contraption grind
away mixing and so forth. After
the dough has risen nicely in the
machine and is about to be baked
into a loaf, I turn the thing off,
remove the dough, and make it
into twelve buns. Those last me
quite a while for sandwiches and
eating with meals. I keep most of
them in the freezer and take them
out little by little so they don’t get
old and dry before I get around to
using them.
Oddly enough, I didn’t eat a lot
of bread as a kid although it was
good with peanut butter, jelly and
honey (all three at once) as my
grandma used to make for me.
Disinterest in bread at that time
might be partly because I’m large-
ly of German descent, and we tend
to be into hearty meaty foods
more than fluffy stuff like bread.
I happened to marry a Norwegian,
however, and that bunch of people
thinks no meal is really complete
if it doesn’t include bread. It must
be a contagious attitude since it
has rubbed off somewhat on me.
Most of my meals now include
some form of bread.
The thoughts of another group
of people have apparently rubbed
off on me too. That would be the
Bohemians or Czechs with their
kolaches. These goodies are basi-
cally bits of dough with a sweet
filling such as prunes, jelly, or a
kind of pie filling. There are two
groups of these people who do not
agree with each other about the
proper way a kolache is to be
made. One bunch says you just
put a flat piece of dough on a pan,
let it rise, put a thumbprint in the
dough, and fill it with sweet stuff
before baking. Others are just as
adamant that a real kolache is a
flattened piece of dough with the
filling put on top and the corners
pulled up and pinched together.
Both are good, but I prefer mak-
ing the former since it is easier
and quite fine with a topping of
sour cream, sugar, and cinnamon.
I make those a lot.
Anyway, bread making is a sat-
isfying endeavor. Dough is fun to
work with. The whole process also
makes the house smell nice while
you’re at it, and the end result
often tastes really good. What
more can you ask?
Bread making is an old family
tradition around here. Some of my
earliest memories are of Mom and
Grandma placing a tall square
stool in the middle of the kitchen
and plunking a big old bread pan
on top of it. I think it was just an
oversized dish pan, but it was
large. From there, they added
ingredients until the mixture was
thick enough. Kneading followed
until the dough was smooth.
As I recall, they scalded some
milk first off so it had time to cool.
Then they proofed the yeast which
involved dissolving it in warm
water to which a little sugar had
been added. If the mixture started
to bubble and expand, that
“proved” it was still good and
would do the job. After milk,
water, sugar, salt and Crisco (I
think, or lard) were mixed togeth-
er and the yeast was added, the
flour was worked in little by little
until the dough was elastic and of
the right consistency.
Next, the pan was put in a warm
place, covered with a white dish
towel and allowed to rise. Then it
was punched down and usually
made mostly into loaves, but
sometimes into coffee cake, buns,
or cinnamon rolls. It was at this
point that I liked to steal pinches
of the dough and eat it. I liked it
quite a lot, but Mom and Grand-
ma frowned if I ate too much of it.
I think they suspected it would
rise in my stomach and blow me
apart or something. It never did,
of course, but they had some bias
against my eating too much raw
dough.
Given my upbringing, I guess it
was only natural that I should
take up bread making on my own
once I got settled back in at the
ranch after college and the Navy.
I started simply and learned as I
went along. With my love of exper-
imentation, I naturally tried all
different kinds of bread from sour
dough to French to whole-grain
and raisin. There were some dis-
asters and some triumphs. After
I’d learned all I wanted to know
about the various permutations, I
more or less settled down to plain
old white bread that I mostly
made into buns but also into cin-
namon and caramel rolls. I’m still
doing that whenever the freezer
runs low.
I have now gone more low-key,
however. At first, I’d mix up a
huge batch of dough using about

Students develop leadership skills
during 4-H Teen Leadership Camp
More than 110 youth 13 to 19
attended South Dakota 4-H Youth
Council’s annual Teen Leadership
Conference (TLC) hosted on the
campus of South Dakota State
University June 3 -7, 2013.
Throughout the week, teens
attended workshops dealing with
health, community involvement,
leadership and more.
John Beede, “The Climber Guy,”
was the keynote speaker during
this event. Beede combines power-
ful success lessons with incredible
adventure stories. Youth were
taught the “Climb On! Success
Strategies,” the life-changing lead-
ership goal setting principles that
were focused on creating positive
change in grades, test scores, club
performance, leadership skills,
family life, physical health and
overall happiness. In addition to
his lesson, Beede provided a work-
shop especially focused on
teenagers. In this hands-on work-
shop, Beede showed students how
to create a “bomb-proof success
plan” for the next three to five
years.
Community Service:
Community service, along with
leadership, is a large focus for the
4-H Youth Development Program.
In order to hit both aspects of
youth enrichment, this year’s con-
ference attendees participated in
various service learning projects.
One project took approximately 20
youth to the United Retirement
Community (URC) Daycare Cen-
ter. Here the teens helped organize
and clean storage closets, sort toys
and stuffed animals and played
with the children.
Alex’s Lemonade Stand:
Alex’s Lemonade Stand is a
foundation dedicated to raising
funds to support finding a cure for
childhood cancer. During TLC,
youth held a lemonade stand and
donated all of the money raised to
the Alex’s Lemonade Stand foun-
dation. They set up the stand at
the local Runnings and asked
patrons to donate in exchange for
lemonade. $282 was raised for this
worthwhile organization.
Boys and Girls Club:
Boys and Girls Club is an after-
school program for children. They
provide a place for children to do
homework, learn real life skills,
and have a place to go. At the Boys
and Girls Club in Brookings, the
delegates spent their time doing
grounds work like pulling weeds
and interacting with kids.
Feeding South Dakota:
Teens raised mischief and
money during a fundraiser called
“Feeding South Dakota.” It is a
hunger relief organization that is
based one trying to eliminate
hunger in the state of South Dako-
ta. Students threw whipped-cream
pies at Youth Council Officers,
with proceeds going to “Feeding
South Dakota.” Along with it being
entertaining, the event raised
$236.
The conference is put on by the
South Dakota Youth Council and
the South Dakota Extension Serv-
ice. To learn more visit, iGrow.org.
Teen Leadership Camp… Jones County 4-Hers Kathlene Boyle and Molly Dowling attended
the 2013 South Dakota Teen Leadership Conference held on the SDSU campus June 3-7. TLC is
for 4-H and non 4-H youth ages 13 - 18 and is a fun-filled week learning skills and traits that will
stretch ones leadership and teamwork abilities by working with others. In addition it is a blast for
the teenagers to run around SDSU's campus. The theme for the 2013 Teen Leadership Conference
was "The Mystery Within".

Boyle participates in
Washington D.C. 4-H trip
Summer program decorates for July 4 holiday
For more than 50 years, thou-
sands of high school youth from all
across the country have traveled to
Washington, DC each summer to
partake in the preeminent 4-H cit-
izenship and leadership experi-
ence—Citizenship Washington
Focus and this year from June 15
through June 23 Jones County's
own Sr 4-H member Kathlene
Boyle joined those youth “Joining
the Revolution”. She was awarded
her trip by the Jones County 4-H
Parents and Leaders Organization
after completing many years of 4-
H work and submitting an essay
on Citizenship to the group.
Youth use Washington, DC as a
living classroom, learning about
the history of our nation, the lead-
ers who have shaped it and their
role in civic affairs both nationally
and locally. CWF isn’t just another
DC field trip – students learn
essential civic leadership skills
and leave with the tools that will
allow them to bring about real
change in their communities. Del-
egates to CWF explore and define
what it means to be a good citizen
and learn how to use their individ-
ual skills to become leaders in
their own communities. 4-H mem-
bers attending learn to put into
practice the skills of teamwork,
consensus building, gathering sup-
port, persuading others, and pub-
lic speaking as they plan and
implement their strategy behind
supporting (or not supporting) and
lobbying for public opinion for dif-
ferent bills. Putting practice into
action. Using all that they have
learned, delegates will discuss
issues important to their commu-
nities and develop Action Plans to
take home to their schools and
communities.

Riding across America for Wounded
Warriors group to stop in Murdo, S.D.
On June 20, 2013, six men in
their mid-60’s embarked on a bicy-
cle ride across the Northern Tier of
the United States to raise money
and awareness for the Wounded
Warrior Project. The 6 over 60
Team hopes set a preliminary goal
of $50,000 for this amazing group
of unsung American heroes. A new
goal on their donations page is
$120,000. The group currently as
accrued $72,345.70 in donations.
All of the money donated goes
directly to the Wounded Warrior
Project. The Team is self-funding
all ride expenses. Donations can
be made directly on the Wounded
Warrior web site that has a direct
link from the team web site www.
6over60raa.com.
The team will begin its journey
in Astoria, Oregon by dipping their
rear wheels in the Pacific Ocean
and conclude 60 days and 3,667
miles later in Portsmouth, New
Hampshire by dipping their front
wheels in the Atlantic Ocean.
Their support vehicle during this
adventure will be driven by their
longtime good friend and retired
pastor. According to their schedule
online, they will be making a stop
in Murdo, S.D. on Monday, July
15.
The six riders range in age from
64 to 68. They will all be retired at
the time of the ride from varied
careers that include a high school
principal in Irvine, an Irvine police
officer, a director of a local water
district, a real estate developer, a
software developer and an execu-
tive from the oil industry. The
members of the 6 over 60 Team are
longtime residents of Irvine. They
attend the same church and have
ridden together for many years
and many miles.
The individual riders have a
variety of personal reasons for
doing this ride but they all have a
common purpose, to generate sup-
port for the Wounded Warrior
Project. This 6 over 60 Team does
not take their lives for granted.
They are reminded every day of
their mortality by the evening
news, the aging of their parents
and the reflection in the mirror. All
six realize how fortunate they are
to be blessed with good health and
great friendships. They also recog-
nize our Wounded Warriors made
a choice to defend what we should
never take for granted. Please
refer to the Team’s website to learn
more about the individual Team
riders and the ride route they
plan to follow.

Batting for a cause
by Rep. Kristi Noem
Like many South Dakotans, I
enjoy spending the summer
evenings outside and at the ball
fields on the weekends. Although
I’m away from family while I’m in
D.C., I do try to run outside to get
a breath of fresh air or find an
opportunity to spend some time
outdoors. I recently had the oppor-
tunity to play in the Congressional
Women’s Softball Game, an annu-
al event where female lawmakers
team up and play female members
of the media in a softball game for
charity.
This wasn’t a task we took light-
ly. Starting months ago, we began
practices at 7 a.m. Tuesday and
Thursday mornings to work on our
fundamentals, such as hitting,
grounding, throwing and pitching.
It was also a great opportunity for
all of us to get to know one anoth-
er and to learn how to work
together as a team.
When we took the field on game
day, more than 1,000 people were
in attendance. All proceeds of the
ticket sales went to benefit the
Young Survival Coalition (YSC), a
global organization dedicated to
critical issues unique to young
women who are diagnosed with
breast cancer. In particular, the
YSC offers resources, connections
and outreach to young women
with breast cancer.
While we may not agree on
every policy considered in Con-
gress, both Democratic and Repub-
lican women came together and
united for an incredible cause. We
can even agree with the media on
this one! According to the Ameri-
can Cancer Society, about 12 per-
cent of women in the United
States will develop invasive breast
cancer during their lifetime. Pre-
ceded by only lung cancer, breast
cancer is the second leading cause
of cancer death in women.
We ended up losing the game
11-8, but at the end of the night it
didn’t matter who came out victo-
rious, because roughly $125,000
was raised for the Young Survival
Coalition and a new coalition of
females from both the House and
Senate was created. I hope you’ll
visit this website for some photos
of the game: http://www.congwom-

Employer mandate delay signals
larger problems for ObamaCare
by Senator John Thune
Recently, the Obama adminis-
tration announced its plans to
delay implementation of one of the
key components of the president’s
signature health care legislation,
the employer mandate. This provi-
sion, which mandates financial
penalties to businesses with more
than 50 employees that fail to pro-
vide government-approved health
insurance to its employees, will be
delayed from 2014 until 2015.
For more than three years,
President Obama has been assur-
ing the American people that pro-
visions in ObamaCare such as the
employer mandate will help lower
premium costs and allow Ameri-
cans to keep the insurance they
preferred. Yet, businesses across
South Dakota and the rest of the
country have lamented that the
legislation is stifling hiring deci-
sions and taking away financial
resources that would normally be
invested in their business. Accord-
ing to a Wells Fargo/Gallup Small
Business Index survey, nearly 4 in
10 small business owners are hold-
ing back hiring because of costs
associated with implementing
ObamaCare.
Not only does the health care
law mandate coverage for employ-
ees, but the law also includes a
provision that mandates employ-
ers include certain government-
determined “essential benefits” for
any employer-sponsored health
plan, leaving almost no flexibility
for an employer to determine what
is best for his or her employees.
Many of these required benefits
increase the cost of plans for
employers and employees alike.
According to a recent Gallup
poll from June of 2013, 52 percent
of respondents said they disap-
prove of ObamaCare, up from 48
percent last fall. The same poll
revealed that for every one person
who believes they will be better off
under ObamaCare, two believe
they will be worse off. Opposition
to the president’s health law is
growing, and will continue to grow,
as Americans realize that the law
is built upon broken promises that
will result in higher health care
costs and more taxes.
While I am pleased that busi-
nesses will be shielded for another
year from the onerous and costly
requirements associated with
employer mandate, the delay pro-
vides further evidence that Oba-
maCare is not the solution to our
health care problems and that this
massive expansion of government
is a step in the wrong direction.
Rather than unilaterally breaking
a law that the president and his
allies in Congress proposed, the
administration should have
worked with Congress to devise a
solution.
It’s time to repeal this broken
legislation and replace it with real
health care reforms that will give
Americans access to the health
care they need, from the doctor
they choose, at a lower cost.
Letter to the editor
By Paul Young, President, South
Dakota Municipal League
(SDML) and City of Spearfish
council member
For any organization to be suc-
cessful, Teamwork must be a core
commodity. For a municipality,
Teamwork is absolutely essential.
We all know and appreciate the
teamwork between the various
departments, the teamwork
between elected officials and city
staff, and the teamwork between a
mayor and council. But from an
elected official’s standpoint, I
would like to single out some
unsung players in this whole
teamwork scheme. Without these
unsung players, municipal govern-
ment would have a hard time func-
tioning at all. The funny thing
about it is that every community
has these unsung players and they
are different in every community.
These unsung players are the
employers in your communities
that allow their employees to serve
the community as an elected offi-
cial. They are willing to share
their human resource with the
community as a whole, knowing
that there will be additional
demands placed upon the employ-
ee’s time and talent. By allowing
their employees to serve their com-
munity as an elected official, they
not only allow their community to
operate today but they allow the
vision and goal to be set for tomor-
row. Every community depends
upon people willing to serve in an
elected capacity, willing to do the
work necessary in the decision
making process that shapes and
molds the community. And for
everyone willing to serve, there
must be someone willing to allow
that person to serve. So you can
see that the teamwork necessary
for municipal government to func-
tion properly extends beyond the
walls of city hall and includes
many others outside of govern-
ment proper. But whether realized
or not they are showing that they
care what kind of community they
have and want by allowing their
employee to be in a decision mak-
ing position in their municipal
government. We could not do it
without the flexibility and willing-
ness of these employers to allow
their employees to serve their com-
munity as an elected official.
In my seventeen years as an
elected official, I have been blessed
with several employers who have
been willing to allow me to serve
my community and state. I am
humbled and honored by their sac-
rifice. So here is a big shout out to
all the unsung players/employers
across this great State of South
Dakota! You not only provide us
with great jobs but you also allow
us the opportunity to serve the
greater community as well. Your
generosity does not go unnoticed.
Thank you..thank you..thank you!
Pierre Guard unit honored
at deployment ceremony
Jones Co. cheer squad
hosts SDSU cheer camp
Sixty-eight Soldiers of the
South Dakota Army National
Guard’s 152nd Combat Sustain-
ment Support Battalion were hon-
ored during a deployment ceremo-
ny Saturday, July 6 in Pierre.
Hundreds of family members,
friends and community supporters
gathered at the T.F. Riggs High
School auditorium to see the Sol-
diers off as they depart for about a
six-month tour to Afghanistan in
support of Operation Enduring
Freedom.
Speakers for the ceremony
included Gov. Dennis Daugaard,
Pierre Mayor Laurie Gill and Maj.
Gen. Tim Reisch, the adjutant gen-
eral of the SDNG.
“This is a great day, because
this (ceremony) brings us together
because of our love for the Soldiers
that are being deployed today,”
said Daugaard. “Our admiration
for their great competence, skill,
courage, dedication and loyalty to
our state and our nation inspires
us to come together and show
them how much we appreciate
them.”
“I couldn’t be more proud of this
unit,” said Reisch. “This unit has
executed a rigorous training plan
to prepare this unit for deploy-
ment, and there is no doubt in my
mind that your performance dur-
ing this deployment will add to the
impressive legacy of the South
Dakota National Guard.”
The mission of the 152nd’s
Headquarters and Headquarters
Company will be to provide multi-
functional combat support and
combat service support to forces
throughout an assigned area of
operation. Multi-functional areas
include supply, transportation,
maintenance and ordnance sup-
port.
“We will do everything possible
to go over there and do great
things and come home safe. That’s
our number one goal,” said Lt. Col.
Michael Oster, commander of the
152nd. “Our second goal is to live
in a place where excellence is not
only our expectation but also that
it becomes our average. So on a
bad day we’re great and on a good
day we are spectacular. That’s
what we’re going to do in the
152nd.”
The Soldiers that comprise the
Pierre-based Guard unit come
from 28 different South Dakota
communities. While many of the
Soldiers will be deploying for the
first time, more than half of the
unit are deploying for the second
or third time.

State Parks busy
during July 4 holiday
As with most summer holidays,
the Fourth of July was a busy one
in South Dakota State Parks.
Park managers across the state
reported full campgrounds and
busy day-use areas over the week-
end. Parks saw a high number of
boaters, swimmers, picnickers and
good attendance at park events.
“For the most part, camp-
grounds were full from Wednesday
through Sunday,” said state park
director Doug Hofer. “The warm
weather kept the boat ramps and
beaches full.”
Fisher Grove State Park near
Redfield had its first holiday week-
end since the new 22-site camp-
ground opened. “We were happy to
see the campground at capacity
over the weekend,” said regional
park supervisor Becky Graff. “It’s
nice to have facilities available in
that area again.”
Custer State Park received over
two inches of rain, but the weath-
er didn’t interfere with camping.
“Our campgrounds and resorts
were full despite the weather,”
said park superintendent Matt
Snyder.
Programs and activities contin-
ue in the parks all summer long.
Visit the events calendar at
www.gfp.sd.gov or call your local
park for more information on
upcoming events.

Dakota state parks and recreation

STRESS MANAGEMENT –
7: MIND READING
It is a basic human trait to
believe that others know what we
know and believe what we believe.
After all, normal humans don’t
believe things that they think are
wrong. Normal people don’t
believe that 2 + 2 is 5. By the same
token, just as we don’t believe 2 +
2 is 5, we also feel that other peo-
ple don’t believe that 2 + 2 is 5.
While this “mind reading” works
very well for 2 +2 being 4, humans
tend to generalize this mind read-
ing behavior to other beliefs.
Specifically if a person
has a negative self image, they will
tend to believe that others share
the individual’s self image. This
leads to such self talks as:
1. They know I am no good.
2. They will surely reject me.
3. They must be right about my
inadequacy.
The emotional pain associated
with the above self talks originates
from our value placed on what oth-
ers believe and from our letting
others such as parents, teaches,
peers, coaches, set our standards
for us. Since we intrinsically feel
that others know and believe what
we know, if we have a negative self
image that will be projected to the
way we believe others feel about
us. Emotional pain from this is
that the person will feel rejected
by others. “Since I have a negative
impression of myself and others
know what I know, they too must
have a negative opinion of me.”
The irrationality of the above is
that people can’t read your mind
although they react to your body
language which does express how
you feel about yourself. A hangdog
pessimistic attitude and personal
carriage will be projected to oth-
ers. Note that people do not reject
you because you are imperfect or
make mistakes. As a matter of
fact, mistakes make another per-
son at ease and let them feel more
adequate knowing that you made
a mistake that they might have
already performed. Note that oth-
ers opinions are only important as
they directly affect you. Others un-
acted upon opinions are of no con-
sequence to you.
Dr. Witte suggested the follow-
ing constructive self talks. He
pointed out that people can’t read
your mind although they do react
to your body language. A person
should realize that how others
treat you is partly a representa-
tion of how you treat yourself. This
leads to such constructive self-
talks as:
1. Others can’t read my mind.
If they seem to reacting negatively
to me, it maybe because I am feel-
ing negative and projecting this
with my body language. Alterna-
tively, I may be misreading their
behavior. Heaven knows I can’t
read their mind either. Lastly, they
may believe something that is
incorrect and I should inquire
before I react.
2. Even if the other person is
reacting negatively to me, I am not
required to agree with and thereby
depreciate myself. Most people are
honest and forthright. It is irra-
tional to feel that they are evil,
unfair, or against me in the
absence of clear evidence for this.
If they seem to think badly of me,
I will make things worse if I irra-
tionally attribute their actions to
their being evil or “against me.”
Note that when I feel others have
an unjustified negative impression
of me, there is a tendency to
become angry, the most self defeat-
ing behavior a person can have.
sary Festival. It ought to be com-
memorated as the Day of Deliver-

God Almighty. It ought to be sol-

with shows, games, sports, guns,
bells, bonfires and illuminations,

Don’t let this be just another
holiday. Reach out and thank
your veterans for the freedom
they have achieved for us. Let us
never stop educating our youth
about the price that has been paid
for their freedom! Live up to John
Adam’s challenge to celebrate
from one end of this continent to
the other.
On Thursday, as we celebrate
our exceptional past, let us also
celebrate America’s future. Let us
also keep the men and women

our thoughts and prayers; espe-
cially South Dakota’s 152nd Com-
bat Sustainment SupportBattal-
ion that will deploy July 6 to
Afghanistan in support of Opera-
tions Enduring Freedom.
As we gather this Fourth of July,
at parades, picnics, barbeques,
ballgames, concerts, and fire-
works displays – all in honor of
our country’s birth and continued
success; let us remember what
America really is and how our
independence was achieved.
