Murdo Chamber of Commerce and Murdo Lions
Club provide man power to spruce up local home
Flag Day commemorated at Murdo Cemetery June 14
Community volunteers, men
and women alike, from two local
organizations worked together to
provide Deb and Ryan Kirscher
with cosmetic renovations to their
home on Garfield Avenue.
The Murdo Chamber of Com-
merce took on the task of repaint-
ing Kirschers’ house with the help
of Paint – South Dakota.
Paint – South Dakota is a pro-
gram through the South Dakota
Housing Development Authority.
SDHDA purchases the paint and
primer needed, and volunteer
groups throughout the state are
responsible for providing the tools
needed, as well as preparing and
painting the house nominated.
The Murdo Lion’s club selected
the Kirscher house for a summer
volunteer project, keeping with
their motto, “To Serve,” after it
was brought to the organization’s
attention that the home was in
need of repair.
The Lion’s funded the roofing
project and provided the volun-
teers needed to complete the proj-
The two organizations acted
separately to complete a mutual
The Lion’s Club holds fundrais-
ers throughout the year to fund
such projects. All funding raised
during such fundraisers is put
directly back into the community
through projects, scholarships,
and other giving opportunities.
Priming… Greg Glaze was among volunteers taking time out
of their evenings to help prepare, paint and shingle the Kirsch-
er house.
Community effort… A group of volunteers work together to
prepare Deb and Ryan Kirscher’s house for a fresh coat of paint.

Caring and Sharing Cancer
Walk successful in third year
There was a gentle breeze and
warm sunshine on the morning of
Saturday, June 15, 2013 as volun-
teers, walkers, and supporters
gathered at the track for the Third
Annual Jones County Caring and
Sharing Cancer Walk. Festivities
began with a prayer by Pastor Ray
Greenseth, and the inaugural lap
by cancer survivors.
Approximately 60 people partic-
ipated, and the president of Jones
County Caring and Sharing had
this to say, “We appreciate the con-
tinued support and efforts of our
local community to help those who
are fighting cancer.”
Registered attendees had the
opportunity to win a variety of
door prizes which had been donat-
ed. At the conclusion of the walk,
the winners of the raffle of two
beautifully handmade quilts were
drawn. These quilts were made
and donated by past recipients of
support and financial assistance
from Jones County Caring and
Sharing. One quilt was won by
Lisa Kinsley; the other was won by
Rose Elrod.
When asked why they volun-
teered for this walk, one partici-
pant said, “I walk to honor the
memory of my family and friends
who have lost their battles with
An estimated $2,500 was raised
with this event. These funds will
help ease financial burdens that
are faced by families afflicted with
cancer. The mission and purpose of
the Jones County Caring and
Sharing group is to provide sup-
port, encouragement and assis-
tance to families affected by can-
cer. All of the funds stay local,
within Jones County to help our
friends, neighbors, and relatives.
If you or someone you know is
struggling with cancer, the Jones
County Caring and Sharing group
is here to help. Jones County Car-
ing and Sharing meets the second
Monday of each month, at 7:00
p.m., at the Messiah Lutheran
Church in Murdo.

Not Always So Bad!
by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Have you heard the story of Honus? Honus was a wicked old renegade who lived in a small country town. When he died his body lay in the funeral par-
lor for three days without anyone even taking notice. Finally, on the day of the burial, a few of his old cronies did stop by to at least pay their respects.
As they gathered, the funeral director said: “Now fellows, we can’t bury Honus like a dog. We’ve got to have some kind of service for him. Won’t some-
body here take charge?” But the silence was profound, so finally the funeral director himself agreed to take charge.
He began by asking whether there wasn’t someone who had some good word to say for Honus before they buried him. Again there was a deep silence,
until finally one old man stood up and said: “Well, I can say this much for Honus; he wasn’t always as bad as he sometimes was.”
To be honest, isn’t this true of all of us? Some people take offense at Rom. 3:22,23, which says: “For there is no difference, for all have sinned and come
short of the glory of God.” They think there is a difference, and that they have not been as sinful as others. Ah, but while there may be a difference in the
nature or the degree of our sins, Romans 3 is right when it says that there is no difference in this: that “all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”
A person may put up a good front, feeling that he is not nearly so great a sinner as others, but whether a bridge is ten feet or a hundred feet short of span-
ning the chasm, it is still useless, so don’t try crossing it.
This is why we all need “the forgiveness of sins, according to the riches of [God's] grace” (Eph. 1:7). And we may have this by trusting in the Christ who
died for our sins (1 Cor. 15:3). “For by grace are ye saved, through faith, and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God” (Eph. 2:8).

“But they all alike began to
make excuses....” (Luke 14:18a)
How is your summer going so
far? Going well, I hope! In a few
days the calendar will declare
that it’s officially “summer.”
Have you included God and the
worship of God in your summer
plans? Yes? No? What?
If the church you’re attending
is anything like the churches
where I am a pastor, there will be
the usual “summer worship
attendance slump.” The worship
of God may not be on the minds
or hearts of very many folks
these days. Many seem to think
God is only present in church
from September through May,
the time when the kids are in
school. That’s sad! How soon we
forget God, once the outside tem-
peratures are over 70 degrees.
You might be saying to yourself,
“Well, the pastor takes a vaca-
tion, why can’t we?” I’m not criti-
cizing your summer vacation.
My question and the question my
colleagues in ministry have for
you is this, “Have you included
God in your summer plans?” I
know that while I’m on vacation,
I make every effort to find a
church where I can worship God
with other believers. Besides, I
might make some new friends. A
commitment (not to a religion but
to a relationship) to follow Jesus
Christ is the key!
We most certainly will commit
ourselves and our families to out-
door summer activities that have
nothing to do whatsoever with
God, and then we follow up with
all kinds of excuses as to why
summer keeps us away from God
and the life of the church. Some-
times we forget about our tithe to
God and the church because
financially we’ve over-extended
ourselves having too much sum-
mer fun.
Perhaps what we need locally
are faith-focused, Christian
based activities during the sum-
mer. Perhaps our churches need
to get more involved in your sum-
mer activities so that you become
more active and involved in the
life of the church the whole year.
My brother-in-law has suggested
that perhaps there needs to be
more “church-sponsored softball
teams.” Not a bad idea.
Jesus told the parable of the
Great Dinner. The invitations
went out. One person made the
excuse that he’d bought a piece of
land and after he bought it, he
needed to go out to see it. Anoth-
er person bought a yoke of oxen
(today it would be a new tractor,
pickup, car, piece of machinery)
and wanted to try them out.
Another person just got married,
and he sent his regrets, too.
Excuses! The invitation was sent.
Those who were invited and who
probably needed the Great Din-
ner the most, rejected the invita-
tion. The Master of the Great
Dinner sends his slave out into
the streets and lanes to invite the
poor, the crippled, the blind, and
the lame to the Great Dinner.
Why? Because, they know the
Master, Jesus, best. The Great
Dinner is a foretaste of the Great
Heavenly Banquet one day with
The Great Dinner is also about
communing with the Lord right
now, by receiving His body and
His blood with other believers in
a house of worship.
Are you active? Inactive? No
church at all? We aren’t here to
judge you, but to help you grow in
your faith and to love you into
the kingdom of God. We are not
talking about organized religion
here. Being a good United
Methodist, Roman Catholic,
Lutheran, or Community Bible
Church member won’t get you
into heaven. Denominational
names don’t cut it with God.
Good works, being a good person,
saying the right prayers or doing
the proper rituals or liturgy does-
n’t count where God is concerned
either. Even the Pharisees
(Jesus’ strongest critics) did all
those things in Jesus’ day and it
didn’t help them. God wants you
to get right with Him. The only
way to do that is through the sav-
ing cleansing blood of Jesus
Christ. You need to have a “rela-
tionship” with Jesus — say “Yes”
to Him. You need to get out of
your “comfort zone” and decide to
“follow Jesus Christ” and what
that all means. By being “hot” or
“cold” at least Jesus Christ will
know where you stand and
whether you accept Him or reject
Him. Just don’t be a “lukewarm
Christian.” My prayer is that you
become “hot” and “committed to
Jesus Christ.” It’s up to you!

course the supper and recess! We
had about 10 adult helpers who
made it interesting for the youth.
Ask a child how to make stained

Zane George Nelson
Zane Nelson, age 28, of Philip,
died Sunday morning, June 16,
2013, in Philip.
Zane George Nelson was born
on January 11, 1985 to Dennis and
Diana (Terkildsen) Nelson in Rose-
bud, S.D. He became the little
brother to Heath Kennedy and
Heather Nelson, and later the
older brother of Dane Nelson, son
of Dennis and Jana (Klug) Nelson.
Zane attended kindergarten in
Philip and graduated from Philip
High School in 2003. He played
football all four years of high
school and was an outstanding
wrestler, placing at the State B
wrestling tournament his fresh-
man through senior years. Zane
loved everything about being out-
doors, though fishing was his
greatest passion. Everywhere he
went, his fishing pole could be
found packed in the back seat.
After graduation Zane attended
Mitchell Technical Institute study-
ing Electrical Construction and
Maintenance. Upon becoming an
apprentice electrician in 2005, he
moved to Ft Collins, Colo., where
he worked on numerous commer-
cial construction projects until
moving back to Philip in 2012.
Zane loved the great outdoors of
Colorado and took every advan-
tage to snowboard, camp, hike,
skateboard, and of course, fish.
Zane was a friend to everyone,
never speaking a bad word about
anyone, and possessed a knack of
listening to others without judg-
ment. He always had a contagious
smile on his face and his laugh
was, and always will be, unforget-
Grateful for having shared his
life, Zane is survived by his moth-
er, Diana (Scott) Olivier, his father,
Dennis Nelson, two brothers,
Heath (Kim) Kennedy and Dane
(Amanda) Nelson, his sister,
Heather (Nathan Kjerstad) Nel-
son, four nieces, Kate and Grace
Kennedy and Allie and Natalie
Kjerstad, maternal grandparents,
Lavern and Dianne Terkildsen,
and his paternal grandmother,
Frances Nelson. He was preceded
in death by his niece, Kaya Lynn
Huling and his paternal grandfa-
ther, Jake Nelson.

Rodeo Dance added Saddle
Bronc Chute-Out events
Organizers of the Saddle Bronc
Chute-Out in White River on June
29, 2013 are pleased to announce
that a Rodeo Dance will also be
offered to the public following the

Twin River Band, featuring
local member John LeBoeuf, will
be headlining the dance in the
bowery, immediately following the
bronc ride.
As with the bronc ride that
night, the dance will be an alcohol-
free event.
“We have been asked to provide
music or a dance for after the
bronc ride,” Joyce Glynn comment-
ed. “People wanted something to
do afterwards, and we are thrilled
that Twin River Band was able to
fit it into their busy summer
There will be no additional fee
to attend the dance, although gate
admission will continue to be
charged throughout the night.
“So come out to watch some
great bronc riding action,” Glynn
added, “and stay for the dance, all
for one low admission price! And
bring your family and kids - there
will be no alcohol on the grounds!”
The bronc ride begins at 6:00
p.m. CT with the Calcutta. Ten
Mutton Busters begin the action,
followed by 16 youth on miniature
horses in the Mini-Bronc Event,

25 top area saddle bronc riders
vying for a $5,000 added purse in
two progressive rounds of action.
Gate admission is $10 for
adults, $5 for all school aged
youth, and age 5 and under is free!

Over $5.6 million announced for
31 SD counties, including Jones
U.S. Senator Tim Johnson (D-
SD) announced that the Depart-
ment of the Interior has designat-
ed over $5.6 million in 2013 Pay-
ment in Lieu of Taxes (PILT) pro-
gram payments to 31 counties in
South Dakota. The PILT program
provides funding to local govern-
ments for public schools, county
road projects, firefighting and
police protections, forest manage-
ment projects and other important
programs in counties with large
tracts of federal lands.
“South Dakota’s Black Hills
National Forest, national grass-
lands and national parks are
tremendous assets to our state,
but they are not part of the local
property tax base,” Johnson said.
“The PILT program ensures that
these communities have addition-
al resources to support local
schools, county roads and other
services people rely on. I have long
supported fully funding the PILT
program to aid counties in South
Dakota in funding essential public
services, and I will continue work-
ing with my colleagues to add
long-term certainty to this vital
Eligibility for the PILT program
is reserved for counties that con-
tain non-taxable federal lands
within their boundaries. This
funding is especially important in
South Dakota, which is home to
several national monuments,
parks, national forests and nation-
al grasslands.
Since 2008, PILT has been fully-
funded, first under the Emergency
Economic Stabilization Act of 2008
and this year under the Moving
Ahead for Progress in the 21st
Century Act. Mandatory funding
discontinues at the end of this fis-
cal year. If mandatory funding is
not extended, the program will be
subject to annual appropriations,
which could result in a much lower
funding level for these vital public

Some teen political camp
scholarships still remain
Students interested in politics
still have a chance to apply for ten
remaining $100 scholarships
available for the upcoming Teen
Leadership Camp in the Black
Hills. The camp, sponsored by the
Teen Age Republicans (TARs), is
attended by students from across
the state and features a variety of
fun and educational opportunities.
Middle school and high school
students interested in politics or
public service are invited to partic-
ipate in the camp, which will be
July 22-27, 2013. In previous
years, students have spent time
with top elected officials, including
U.S. Senator John Thune and Gov-
ernor Dennis Daugaard, visited
Mt. Rushmore, spent an afternoon

Youth In Action Day results
The final results are in from the
2013 4-H Youth In Action Day. In
addition to the Iron Chef Contest,
Demonstrations, Illustrated Talks
and Public Speaking reported ear-
lier, 4-Her’s participated in a Con-
sumer Decision Making contest
where they were asked to rank
consumer products one through
four and give reasons for the way
they placed those products.
The ability to make wise deci-
sions is a vital 21st Century learn-
ing skill. Decision making is an
important life skill that young peo-
ple need to develop for use in indi-
vidual decision making as well as
in making decisions in groups.
The classes presented for judg-
ing at the Jones County Youth In

flash drives, ways of saving money,
digital cameras, toothpaste and
laundry soap. A Top Purple was
won in the Beginner division by
Wyatt Olson with purples being
earned by Matthew Birkeland, Ty
Fuoss, Madelyn Host and Seth

Dylan Fuoss. In the Junior divi-
sion Morgan Feddersen took home
Top Purple honors with Jacob
Birkeland, Jake Dowling, and
Molly Dowling winning purple rib-
bons with Austin Olson taking a

GFP emphasizing boating safety Locals participate in
Omaha Color Run
Summer baseball league in full swing with loaded schedule
Caring and Sharing fundraising walk continued...
With the approach of the Fourth
of July Holiday, the South Dakota
Game, Fish and Parks Depart-
ment is joining a national effort to
highlight boating safety.
Operation Dry Water will take
place June 28-30, and is a national
weekend promoting boating safety
and responsible use of alcohol
while boating.
Approximately 17 percent of all
boating fatalities nationwide are
alcohol-related. As part of the
national event, GFP will be con-
ducting extra boating safety
patrols across the state to promote
safe and responsible boating prac-
tices heading into the Fourth of
July holiday.
“Our conservation officers con-
duct these safety patrols through-
out the year,” Brandon Gust, GFP
boating safety coordinator, said.
“As we move into the peak boating
season, we feel we can use our
presence to share the message
that safety is an essential element
of any boating experience.”
Having a safe and sober opera-
tor is always a critical part of boat-
ing but Gust added there are other
items to account for as well.
“Before heading onto the water,
check your equipment,” he said.
“Fire extinguishers, life jackets,
throwable seat cushions and other
equipment must be in good work-
ing condition. The best way to pre-
vent an unwanted tragedy on the
water is to be prepared.”
The majority of boats in South
Dakota are required to carry:
One U.S. Coast Guard-approved
wearable, properly sized person-
able flotation device for each per-
son aboard. One U.S. Coast
Guard-approved throwable type
flotation device (seat cushion or
ring buoy) for vessels 16 feet or
longer. One U.S. Coast Guard-
approved fire extinguisher of B-1
type or larger for vessels with
enclosed gas compartments.
Gust noted that state regula-
tions require all children under
age seven to wear an approved
personal flotation device anytime
a boat is moving at greater than
no-wake speed. He recommends
taking the next step and keeping a
personal flotation device on all
occupants in the boat at all times.
If boaters are uncertain what
safety equipment they are
required to have onboard, Gust
suggests that they pick up a copy
of the South Dakota Boating
Handbook at the nearest GFP
Office, state park, GFP-license
outlet or by going online at
h t t p : / / g f p . s d . g o v / f i s h i n g -
“Boating is all about having fun.
Our boating safety patrols have a
secondary role of law enforce-
ment,” Gust said. “Our primary
goal is to share the message with
the boating public that safety is
the most important factor to a fun
outing. We want everyone to have
an enjoyable boating season.”
Happiest 5K on the planet… Karlee Moore, left, and Shan-
non Sealey participated in Omaha’s Color Run, a 5K in which a
colored, corn-starch textured substance is thrown at runners in
designated color stations along the run route. The object of the
run was to have fun, and to soak up as much color as possible.
Volunteers… Jim Butt was a volunteer first base coach dur-
ing the “B” team game, and is shown here giving advise to a base
runner. Some other volunteers included umpires Zach Hespe and
Garlise Boni and “A” team first base coach Andy Rankin.
Sliding effort… A Wall base runner slides into home, not
quite escaping Jake Dowling’s glove. Home plate umpire Zach

and Sharing group who has been in remission the longest. Warn-

SDSU Extension Wheat Walks
SDSU Extension held a series of
Wheat Walks June 11 and 12 near
Delmont, Ideal, Dakota Lakes
Research Farm and Gettysburg,
SD. These events were partially
funded by the South Dakota
Wheat Commission, with contribu-
tions from Agland Coop, Winner
Seed, Simplot Soil Builders, Coun-
try Pride Coop, AgriPro Wheat and
Northern Plains Coop. Farm Cred-
it of Pierre also attended one of the
walks and provided refreshments.
Altogether, approximately 80
producers, agronomists, crop con-
sultants and chemical representa-
tives attended the events and
gained information on wheat pro-
duction. SDSU Extension Special-
ists contributing to the program
included Nathan Mueller, Exten-
sion Agronomist, Ruth Beck,
Agronomy Field Specialist,
Emmanuel Byamukama, Exten-
sion Plant Pathologist, Bob Fan-
ning, Plant Pathology Field Spe-
cialist, Connie Strunk, Plant
Pathology Field Specialist, Ada
Szczepaniec, Extension Entomolo-
gist, Ron Gelderman, Extension
Soils Specialist, Darrell Deneke,
IPM Coordinator, and Mark
Rosenberg, Weeds Field Specialist.
Dwayne Beck, Manager of the
Dakota Lakes Research Farm,
hosted the event at that location,
and Randy Englund, Executive
Director of the South Dakota
Wheat Commission attended each
of the walks and provided a report
from the Wheat Commission. Clair
Stymiest, from AgriPro Wheat
attended the walk at the Dakota
Lakes Research Farm and provid-
ed information on the AgriPro pro-
gram and the varieties they have
to offer.
Attendees received a wealth of
information from the Extension
personnel and others involved,
were provided with a large offering
of handout material, and given the
opportunity to interact with the
specialists present to get their
questions answered.
While a large number of winter
wheat acres were abandoned in
the spring of 2013, spring rains
transformed the remaining fields,
and the majority of spring wheat
fields into respectable condition.
Emmanuel Byamukama found low
levels of tanspot in the fields visit-
ed, and reported that while both
leaf and stripe rust have been
found in Nebraska, they had yet to
move north and have not been
reported in South Dakota. Produc-
ers will want to be on the lookout
for rust and can visit the Cereal
Disease Laboratory website:
docid=9757 to monitor its
progress. Growers who have wheat
planted into corn, wheat, grain
sorghum or millet residue will also
want to monitor their risk for scab,
and can periodically visit the
Fusarium Head Blight Prediction
Center: www.wheatscab.psu.edu/
to do so. A few fields near where
the wheat walks were held had
some level of wheat streak mosaic
Cutworms had not posed a prob-
lem for winter wheat in 2013,
aphids were currently present but
in low numbers, and the grasshop-
per risk for this year is low to mod-
erate. Research trials are also
being conducted to evaluate vari-
ous new fertility products that
have come on the market in recent
years such as ESN. The big issue
in the weeds area is herbicide
resistance and the efforts being
directed to develop control options.

information on wheat production,

crop tours across the state.

with ketchup which landed on my
shirt. The messy French fry par-
ticularly irritated me so I renewed
my resolve to pay attention. That
seemed to work and the droppage
stopped for the most part except
that we tend to always fumble and
lose hold of a few things from time
to time and just accept it as nor-
I occasionally have to tell myself
to shape up in other areas as well.
When I’m playing hymns for con-
gregational singing at church and
hit more sour notes than usual, I
quickly realize that I haven’t been
practicing enough. If you don’t
practice regularly, there gets to be
a glitch in coordination of eye on
the music, brain in motion, and
finger agility. The only remedy is
to get in more practice time so I
make a mental note to do that and
usually follow through with it.
Some things, however, you are
never going to be any good at no
matter how much you scold your-
self. My memory for names is a
case in point. I can be introduced
to someone and not remember
their name five minutes later. It’s
a hopeless deal. What’s worse, no
one will be able to judge if I’m
going senile by my lack of memory
for names. I’ve never had any so it
isn’t apt to get a lot worse. Shoot,
sometimes under pressure I have
trouble remembering my wife’s
name. With certain people, I’ve
had to resort to all sorts of mental
gymnastics and word pictures to
dredge up their names. For some
reason, I could never remember
the name of Spinsby until I start-
ed thinking of their mailbox with
a bee sitting on top running a
spinning wheel—a spinning bee,
so to speak. That’s continues to
work. Another name that has
given me trouble is Stillwell. I
remember that by thinking of that
fellow looking down a well and
stating that the water is quiet, or
still, down there. Good grief.
Luckily, most times you don’t need
to say names. You can just say,
“Hi. How are you doing?” without
using the actual moniker of the
person you’re talking to. Introduc-
tions can still be a torment, but
greetings can be simple and non-
There are other times when you
just have to re-familiarize your-
self with an idea or concept due to
lack of recent usage. I have this
happen every year when we sell a
bull or two and I need to record
the sale on my books. Normally,
when you sell a critter, you just
debit cash and credit sales. When
you sell something you’ve depreci-
ated, though, you have to do it dif-
ferently. It takes four entries
including cash, bull inventory,
reserve for depreciation, and gain
on a fixed asset. This used to give
me real fits, but I’ve done it
enough times now that, after a
moment or two, it usually comes
to me how to proceed. If it doesn’t,
I can always look on last year’s
books and see how I did it then.
Another area we often have
trouble with is worry. When you or
a loved one has health problems,
cash is running out faster than
the bills, you need rain and it isn’t
coming etc., worry can set in and
make you miserable. After I’ve
stewed around for a while and got-
ten all tense, I finally see what I’m
doing and ask myself, “And why
aren’t you praying about this
instead of working yourself into
some kind of state?” After all, the
apostle Peter reminds us to “Cast
all your cares upon Him because
He cares for you.” This is sterling
advice which makes worry a com-
pletely pointless and unnecessary
endeavor. What’s more, God not
only cares what happens to us but
also has the power and ability to
change things so they will come
out okay. He looks after us if we
just trust him. I’ve seen it happen
time and again, but I still occa-
sionally have to sternly counsel
myself to quit fussing and start
So, if you find yourself lacking in
an area and having trouble, some-
times you just need to remind
yourself to shape up and get a
grip. Alternately, you can pray,
which isn’t a bad idea either. It
tends to work for me anyway.
Give it a try. It will probably work
for you too.
I was a little afraid last Sunday
that I might be losing my grip.
No, I don’t mean that way. I’m not
talking about losing my grip on
reality or, that is to say, my mind.
I’m talking about my ability to
keep a firm hold on things with
my hands. At the church hall, I
dropped a metal cake-pan lid
which made quite a clatter. A bit
later I dropped an empty cake
pan. “What’s going on?” I asked
myself. “Pay attention to what
you’re doing.” I started paying
attention after that so I didn’t
drop anything else for a while.
The next day, though, I was back
at it. A plastic lid went flying one
time, a mushroom another, and
worst of all, a French fry loaded

No foul play suspected
in Philip man’s death
by Del Bartles
According to the South Dakota
Attorney General’s office, as of
Monday morning there is no foul
play suspected in the death of a
Philip man.
Zane George Nelson, 28, son of
Dennis Nelson and Diana Olivier,
both of Philip, was found in down-
town Philip just after midnight
Sunday morning, June 16. He had
earlier been at the local demolition
derby and was celebrating his
Philip High School 10-year class
According to Sara Rabern, pub-
lic information officer with the
Attorney General’s office, there is
no foul play expected. A full autop-
sy is being conducted by the state.
The body was first discovered
by a citizen. The incident was ini-
tially investigated by personnel
from the Philip City Police,
Haakon County Sheriff ’s Depart-
ment and the South Dakota
Department of Criminal Investiga-
tion. The investigation is still
“As far as the cause of death, we
don’t have a clue as of yet,” said
Philip Police Chief Kit Graham.
“We have a lot more questions
than we do answers, but that’s
common. It’s going to take time.”
Services for Nelson are pending
with Rush Funeral Home. A full
obituary will be published.

The seventh annual Philip Invi-
tational Matched Bronc Ride, Fri-
day, June 14, was again a success
by almost everyone’s standards.
The Philip roping arena was the
site of 25 top Professional Rodeo
Cowboys Association cowboys try-
ing to survive three progressive
rounds of bronc riding to take top
With 50 of the best, or up-and-
coming, broncs available, the
action was hot, unpredictable and
unforgettable. Livestock compa-
nies supplying the broncs were
Three Hills Rodeo of Bernard,
Iowa, Korkow Rodeo of Pierre,
S.D., and Burns Rodeo of Laramie,
The first round of the bronc ride
was full of crowd-pleasing high
scores. Cole Elshere, Faith, topped
the pack with 81 on Bandito Gold.
Jesse Bail, Camp Crook, earned 79
points on top of Satin Sheets. Ryan
Elshere (pictured right), Elm
Springs, spirited 78 points with
Grey Ghost. Ty Thompson, Wan-
blee, rode Diamond Trail and J.J.
Elshere, Hereford, rode Storm
Warning, both for 77. Jeremy
Meeks, Alzada, played Jukebox
and Louie Brunson, Interior, rode
a reride option horse, both for 76
points. Troy Crowser, Whitewood,
stayed on Sweetheart and Delbert
“Shorty” Garrett, Dupree, stayed
on Kosheese to both earn 74
points. Getting 73 points each,
Jade Blackwell, Rapid City, stuck
to Boogers Pet and Kaden Deal,
Red Scaffold, held on to Chrome
Plated. Dawson Jandreau, Ken-
nebec, made the cut in order to go
into the second round by riding
Harry Mary for 71 points.
The progressive round pitted the
12 remaining cowboys against up-
and-coming livestock that may be
somewhat green, but have energy
and possibilities to go far in the
bucking bronc arena. J. Elshere
stayed on top and rode a wild-
bucking Blind Date for 79 points.
Bail went Haywire for 77. Cole
Elshere hung all over Screwdriver
and Ryan Elshere survived Morn-
ing After, both for 76 points. Gar-
rett put his score of 75 in Dixie
Cup. Making the cut to move on to
the short go was Jandreau, earn-
ing 74 points on a reride option.
In the final round of only six
cowboys, J. Elshere could not stay
on, but went out with a Blaze of
Glory. Garrett rode Paint Chip for
75 points, but found that even this
respectfully high score could not
hold up with this caliber of bronc
riders. Jandreau kept on his Big
Wig and Cole Elshere did it Span-
ish Style, both for 78 points each,
but even this high of a score wasn’t
good enough. Bail and Bull Frog
together scored 79, only to also be
beat out. Ryan Elshere stayed tied
to the bucking bronc Fraid Knot to
earn 80 points and the top title for
the 2013 Philip Invitational
Matched Bronc Ride.

The Clinical View
• Dr. P.E. Hoffsten •
The previous three columns in
this series of seven devoted to
stress management laid the basics
of stress talk psychology. The con-
cept is that what you say out loud
is instantaneously stated in your
own mind before you say it out
Dr. Herman Witte recognized
that there seemed to be a series of
self talks that people with poor
stress management techniques
used repeatedly. He first lectured
about the basic irrational self talk,
“it upsets me.” For a number of
reasons previously discussed, “it
upsets me” gives away self control
and places control with “it.” Plac-
ing control of your actions with “it”
leads to very ineffective stress
He subsequently delineated
general irrational self talks one
through six, the first two of which
have already been presented in
the previous columns. The first
general irrational self had to do
with demandedness and how this
generates resistance in other peo-
ple. The second irrational self talk
had to do with helplessness and
lack of understanding. The next
general irrational talk number
three has to do with “horrib-
Inflation is a property of human
behavior. It is a very human trait
to exaggerate what one is describ-
ing. Examples might include the
performance of a grandchild or the
size of the fish that got away.
These are trivial harmless exam-
ples. But if we are talking about
stressful events, the exaggeration
tends to be negative. Most impor-
tantly, since a self-talk is said qui-
etly internally before the words
are ever spoken out loud, the exag-
gerated adjectives used will mold
the feelings the person has. This
leads to self talks such as:
1. It was a horrible storm. (May
really be only 2 inches of snow).
2. He is a terrible drunk.
3. This is so bad I can’t stand it.
(In fact you are already standing
4. I can’t cope with this divorce,
I am falling apart. (The divorce
may be horrible but I have never
experienced a person actually
falling apart).
This type of language begins as
children. Their vocabulary is limit-
ed and children tend to view situa-
tions as black or white, yes or no,
best or worse. If they hear this lan-
guage from their parents it
becomes even more inbedded. In
addition, as we grow up, we hear
about events in other people. If we
have never experienced the event
that they are talking about and
they place a horribilizing adjective
in front of it, the event becomes
something to dread even though it
may only be a two inch snowstorm.
We hear about horrible bullys,
dangerous accidents, the heart-
break of psoriasis, the horrible
migraine headaches and the pain
of childbirth. Granted that some of
these events do have extreme con-
siderations, but when events have
a horrible-izing adjective in front
of the word the event becomes hor-
rible. This is called attaching
“emotional value” to the event by
the words we use to describe it.
Note this habit takes control away
from the person and shapes the
response to the event.
The fact is the words we use to
describe an event will shape how
we react to it. A fatal or paralyzing
automobile accident is horrible but
dropping a carton of milk on the
floor and having it burst is not hor-
rible. It may be inconvenient,
wasteful, or damaging to property
but it is not horrible.
The self defeating aspect of hor-
ribilizaiton is that it tends to
immobilize the person. If the event
is horrible or you can’t stand it,
some degree of inaction will follow.
If something is horrible, then the
person experiencing it will require
soothing attention. This leads to a
dependent attitude. Bodily aches
and pains tend to be amplified.
Preoccupation with bodily percep-
tions leads to a decreased scope of
interest as one ruminates about an
event. Coping skills are aban-
doned just when they are needed
Dr. Witte offered as an alterna-
tive, a group of self talks whereby
the individual appropriately
grades the importance of an event
avoiding attaching intrinsic emo-
tional value to an event. This leads
to more constructive self talk such
1. I feel this is just too bad (mild
negative response).
2. I feel very disappointed over
this event (moderate negative
3. I feel very sad over this event
(strongly negative response).
4. I feel serious concern even
fear over what is or has been hap-
pening but my feelings are my
own. I know that my stomach will
not be turned inside out, that my
heart will not be broken and my
head won’t split open because of
the emotions that I have over an
5. I may not do as well as I
would like but I will handle (stand,
tolerate, endure) what is about to
happen. I will be in control of me.
As an exercise, think about a time
when you had a bad streeful expe-
rience and see how the following
self-talks apply to your response
1. “It upsets me” (Basic irra-
tional self-talk).
2. “He should not do that” (Gen-
eral irrational self-talk #1).
3. “I do not understand why he
does that.” (General irrational
self-talk #2).
4. “It is horrible.” (General irra-
tional self-talk #3”).
The mission of the South Dako-
ta Department of Veterans Affairs
is to serve the over 75,000 veter-
ans residing in South Dakota in all
matters pertaining to veterans
benefits. This responsibility falls
into two basic tasks: informing
veterans and their families about
their benefits and directly assist-
ing and advising veterans and
their families in securing the ben-
efits to which they are entitled.
Advocating with purpose and
passion for South Dakota veter-
ans, our team is at the forefront of
the most demanding challenges
confronting our state’s veterans,
whether they are veterans from
the World War II generation, the
Korean War, Vietnam, the Cold
War, or veterans who most recent-
ly served in support of Operation
Enduring Freedom, Operation
Iraqi Freedom, or Operation New
According to the VA’s FY 2012
Summary of Expenditures, South
Dakota veterans receive more
than $489.2 million annually in
medical, compensation, education,
and pension benefits. Although
this number is impressive, there
are many eligible veterans in
South Dakota who are not taking
advantage of the many benefits
available to them.
This month we are encouraging
all veterans to verify that they
have utilized all the educational
opportunities afforded to them.
As the State Approving Agency,
the South Dakota Department of
Veterans Affairs is responsible for
approving and supervising pro-
grams in South Dakota’s universi-
ties and technical schools as well
as the on-the job training and
apprenticeship programs.
Currently South Dakota has
140 veterans participating in the
OJT/Apprenticeship programs and
over 2,500 veterans using GI Bill
benefits for college and technical
schools. But that number can and
should grow. OJT programs
include such positions as apprais-
ers, funeral directors, police offi-
cers, correctional officers, electri-
cians, plumbers, parts technicians,
mechanics, IT specialists, radio
technicians, fire fighters, welders,
chefs, and many more.
We encourage all veterans to
make sure that they have utilized
their education benefits.
For more information regarding
your educational benefits and the
programs available to you, we
encourage you to contact ouredu-
cation team at (605.773.3269).

Delta Dental of SD celebrates
50 years by giving back
In celebration of its 50th
anniversary, Delta Dental of South
Dakota provided $1,000 dollars to
each employee and board member
to give to a nonprofit organization
of their choice through a project
called ‘We Give.’
Nearly $90,000 dollars was
donated to 68 nonprofit organiza-
tions across the state of South
Dakota ranging from a local volun-
teer fire department in Agar to
several Boys and Girls Club organ-
Delta Dental of South Dakota
President and CEO, Scott Jones
says, “We think the ‘We Give’ pro-
gram is a wonderful way for Delta
Dental to celebrate our employees’
hard work, dedication and gener-
ous spirit.”
The ‘We Give’ program is one
way for Delta Dental of South
Dakota’s employees to celebrate a
milestone and to also continue ful-
filling Delta’s nonprofit mission by
giving back to the communities
they serve.
State reminds of Labeling
Law for fuel pumps
State officials are reminding
consumers and gasoline retailers
that the 2013 South Dakota Legis-
lature passed a law limiting where
85 octane fuel may be sold and
requiring cautionary labels on
The law, which took effect in
March when signed by Governor
Dennis Daugaard, requires that
pumps selling 85 octane fuel carry
a warning label that says: “This
octane level may not meet mini-
mum manufacturer specifications.
Consult your owner’s manual
before fueling.’’
The same law limits the sale of
85 octane fuel to nine western
South Dakota counties. Gasoline
sold in all other parts of the state
must have a minimum octane rat-
ing of 87. Many engine manufac-
turers recommend a minimum of
87 octane fuel.
“The Legislature recognized
that 85 octane fuel has been mar-
keted for decades in the western
part of South Dakota,’’ said Trevor
Jones, Secretary of the Depart-
ment of Public Safety. “The law
continues to allow sale of that
product in nine counties. However,
the law also says the proper warn-
ing label must be conspicuously
placed on the pumps. This is a
reminder to both consumers to
check the labels and for retailers
to know and follow the law.’’
The law allows the sale of 85
octane fuel with proper labeling in
Butte, Custer, Fall River, Harding,
Lawrence, Meade, Pennington,
Perkins and Shannon counties.
The sale of 85 octane in South
Dakota is prohibited outside of
these counties.
