Crime in South Dakota
2012 publication released
Attorney General Marty Jack-
ley released today the Crime in
South Dakota 2012 report. This
report is compiled by the Attorney
General’s Criminal Statistical
Analysis Center (SAC). The SAC
Unit is the primary clearinghouse
for criminal justice statistical data
for South Dakota. Criminal statis-
tics help identify trends in crimi-
nal activity that assists in crime
prevention and enforcement
efforts across South Dakota.
“Our criminal statistics reflect
that over all South Dakota
remains a relatively safe place to
live as a result of law enforcement
efforts, strong community involve-
ment, and a supportive legisla-
ture,” said Jackley. “However,
experiencing an increase in crimi-
nal activity justifies the need to
examine further strengthening
crime prevention and enforcement
efforts especially in the sex offense
and violent crime areas.”
South Dakota law enforcement
agencies reported a total of 36,264
arrests involving 62,499 offenses
in 2012, an 11 percent increase
from 2011 (56,272). The more seri-
ous offenses included a total of
15,887 arrests and involve the fol-
lowing: homicide/negligent
manslaughter-17, sex offenses-
144, assault-4,420, larceny/theft-
3,323, fraud-321, drug/narcotic-
4,584, prostitution-20, kidnap-
ping-19, robbery-50, arson-31, bur-
glary-387, motor vehicle theft-158,
counterfeiting-82, embezzlement-
52, stolen property-69, destruction
of property-681, pornography/
obscene material-29 and weapon
law violations-182. Less serious
offenses totaled 20,377 arrestees,
involving the following, but not
limited to DUI-5,897 (5,775 for
2011), liquor law violations-4,463
and disorderly conduct-2,100.
Some examples of the South
Dakota numbers included an
increase in drug arrests of 17 per-
cent, sex offenses of 9 percent,
assaults 2.5 percent and an
increase in thefts totaling more
than $20 million worth of property
loss reported.

Avera St. Mary’s to
begin renovations in July
Work will soon begin on a series
of renovations at Avera St. Mary’s
Hospital designed to help better
meet the needs of a changing
healthcare environment, and bet-
ter utilize available space through-
out the facility.
Avera St. Mary’s recently con-
tracted with BWBR Architects,
Inc. of St. Paul to assist in develop-
ing a master facilities develop-
ment and improvement plan. The
renovations approved by the Avera
St. Mary’s governing board last
week are the first steps in a long
range plan that will provide a
vision for Avera St. Mary’s campus
into 2020.
Work is slated for July-Septem-
ber, and includes:
• Construction of a new Inten-
sive Care Unit (ICU) on the far
east end of the fourth floor. This
will house six ICU suites as well
as a new nurse’s station.
• Moving the Medical/Surgical
Unit from the second floor the
fourth floor to occupy the space
vacated by previously moving the
Transitional Care Unit (TCU) to
Maryhouse. This will create 18
large, private patient rooms, each
with a private bathroom.
• The Outpatient Treatment
Center (OTC), will move from the
area next to the Emergency
Department to second floor, in the
current ICU area.
• Eight small, post-partum
rooms in The Family Center (OB)
will be remodeled into four larger
suites to better accommodate fam-
ily members.
“This is all about ensuring we
are doing everything we can to
best meet the needs of people in
central South Dakota who count
on Avera and Avera St. Mary’s to
provide quality care,” said Richard
Molseed, Executive President for
Strategy and Governance, Avera
Representatives from BWBR
will be on hand in July to initiate
additional long range facility
plans. For more information about

interview, please contact Amanda

Soil workshop held in Murdo June 17
Even with all the precipitation
the county has been receiving late-
ly, managing drought and health
soil were topics discussed at the
Soil Workshop held this past week
in Murdo.
Thirteen were in attendance for
the workshop held June 17 at the
Dan Parish Center. Mitch Faulkn-
er showed the group how to utilize
the Drought Monitor as another
tool to help producers with man-
agement decisions. This can be
found at http://www.sd.nrcs.
Robert Fanning discussed soil
formation, ways to increase car-
bons in the soil, and the impor-
tance of soil micro-organisms.
Both speakers touched on the four
important factors for healthy soil:
Soil Organic Matter, Soil Infiltra-
tion, Soil Biological Activity and
Aggregate Stability.
Ryan Willert did a rain fall sim-
ulator presentation to show the
importance of having residue on
cropland and the effects that over-
grazing can have on grass root for-
mation on pasture land. The Nix
Ranch tour was rained out.
A light lunch was sponsored by
the Jones County Conservation
District and First Fidelity Bank.
The workshop was sponsored by:
Jones County NRCS, Jones Coun-
ty Conservation District and
South Central RC&D.

Fire Marshal urges Fourth
of July fireworks safety
Legal sale of fireworks in South
Dakota begins on Thursday, June
27, and Fire Marshal Paul Merri-
man is urging residents to be safe
and sensible as they celebrate
Independence Day.
“Fireworks have long been a
traditional part of the Fourth of
July celebration in South Dakota,
but every year we have a few
injuries and some unintentional
fires,’’ Merriman said. “While
much of the state has experienced
much-needed moisture in recent
months, we still caution anyone
using fireworks to cooperate in
keeping us all safe and fire-free.
Common sense goes a long way.’’
The 2013 South Dakota Legisla-
ture changed state law to allow the
discharge of fireworks from June
27 until the Sunday after July 4.
This year, that means it’s legal to
discharge fireworks through Sun-
day, July 7. Previously, July 5 was
the legal end date for use of fire-
works in the state.
Individual cities may adopt
stricter limits on use of fireworks,
and Merriman suggests citizens
check local ordinances and regula-
He also said staff with the State
Fire Marshal’s Office will be out
during the legal sales period
inspecting retail fireworks stands
to make sure the products being
offered for sale in South Dakota
are legal consumer fireworks.
“We aren’t trying to take the fun
out of the holiday, but we do want
to make sure the fireworks being
sold meet legal requirements,’’
Merriman said.
The National Fire Protection
Association says recent statistics
show that nationally in 2010 fire-
works caused an estimated 1,100
structure fires, 300 vehicle fires
and 14,100 outside and other fires
with eight civilian deaths and $36
million in property damage. The
risk of fireworks injury was high-
est for children age 5-14, the asso-
ciation said.
Merriman offered a few simple
safety tips: Follow the instructions
on the product, avoid using fire-
works in places where a fire could
start and keep a source of water
Sparklers are popular with
younger children, but they can
cause painful burns and should be
used with adult supervision, Mer-
riman said.

Does Misery Love Company?
by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
We have all heard the statement: “Misery loves company.” It is true that when one is sick or in trouble he does not feel quite so sorry for himself when
he realizes that others are as unfortunate, and perhaps more so, than he.
However, some have used this phrase: “Misery loves company,” in speaking lightly of hell. Perhaps you have heard someone say: “Well, if I go to hell,
at least I’ll have lots of company.” This is true, but the company the lost will have when cast out of God’s presence will hardly afford them comfort.
The Bible story of the rich man and Lazarus brings this fact out with great force. The rich man, you will remember, “fared sumptuously every day,” while
Lazarus “was laid at his gate, full of sores, desiring to be fed with the crumbs which fell from the rich man’s table.”
In the process of time both died, and the rich man, having felt no need of salvation, suddenly was made to experience God’s wrath upon sin, for the sacred
record says: “In hell he lifted up his eyes, being in torments” (Luke 16:23). From his place of torment the rich man saw Lazarus with Abraham “afar off,”
but this surely afforded little comfort, while we do read that “Lazarus was comforted.” The rich man, then, still with haughty superiority, asked Abraham to
send Lazarus back to earth to warn his five brothers, “lest they come into this place of torment.” He did not wish his brothers to join him in hell. “Misery”
among those cast out of God’s presence, then, does not “love company.”
The story is brought to a close as Abraham refuses the rich man’s request, explaining that if his brothers would not hear the Word of God “neither will
they be persuaded though one rose from the dead” (Luke 16:31).
The way to avoid the lot of the rich man, then, is to believe the Word of God, particularly that part of the Word which tells how Christ died for our sins
that we might be justified by grace through faith. Don’t be deceived by the old adage: “Misery loves company.” Receive Christ as your Savior today.
“Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:31).

Storm brings hail and rain moving down I-90 corridor
by Karlee Moore
A Friday morning storm bring-
ing wind, rain and hail moved
through western and central
South Dakota on June 21, bringing
in the first day of summer.
Up to two inches of rain were
reported in Jones County on June
21. According to the National
Weather Service in Aberdeen, at
11:30 a.m., 60 MPH wind gusts
were reported five miles southwest
of Okaton, along with dime sized
hail. Local Jones County residents
reported sightings of up to quarter
sized hail.
The large, quick moving storm
started in the western part of the
state, following Interstate 90, con-
tinuing to grow as it moved north.
The storm chasing crew said they
predicted tornadic activity out of
the storm and two tornados were
reported to have touched down,
one eight miles northwest of
Miller, and the other in southern
Clark County. Straight line dam-
aging winds were reported in the
northeastern part of the state,
along with more hail and some
Hail drift… Pictured is one of the many hail drifts spotted in
the county after the July 21 morning storm.

Eerily dark… The storm moving in on Friday, June 21
brought with it an eerie darkness. The street lights came on at
about 11 a.m. and the darkness continued throughout the dura-
tion of the storm.

“Golf For Guardianship” is a
golf card listing 90 golf courses
across the state. For $30 a nine-
hole round or 50 percent off an 18-
hole round can be played at each
course using the “Golf For
Guardianship” golf card. Courses
listed in the area include the
Murdo Golf Club.
In 2012, over $10,000 was
raised to provide guardianship
services to adults in South Dakota
with disabilities. The Guardian-
ship Program is a private, non-
profit agency serving people with
disabilities with guardianship and
conservatorship services due to
the support and participation of
the Murdo Golf Club.
All of the money raised stays in
South Dakota and supports per-
sonal and financial services for our
most vulnerable citizens. “Golf For
Guardianship” is sponsored by the
Murdo Golf Club, who donates
green fees, the members of the
National Association of Insurance
and Financial Advisors of SD who
volunteer to seel cards and all of
the area golfers who support this
program by buying a “Golf For
Guardianship” card.
The 2013 “Golf For Guardian-

It has been brought to my atten-
tion that the article I wrote in the
June 13 issue of the Murdo Coyote
after attending the June 4 county
commissioners meeting has a few
issues that need to be clarified.
The last six paragraphs of the
article referenced the meeting in
which the commissioners spoke
with Richard Nix and Paul
Thomas from the Jones County
Conservation District about soil
erosion in the county. State’s
Attorney Anita Fuoss was also
present during this time.
Due to the complexity of the
statutes, details concerning soil
erosion were misinterpreted. Flow
charts detailing these issues are
printed below.
I apologize for any confusion the
article may have caused. County
commissioner meetings are open
to the public and anyone wanting
to attend is encouraged to do so.
Anyone with questions concern-
ing soil erosion, or requesting
more information on the issue may
contact the Jones County Conser-
vation District at 669-2404 or 806
West 5th Street, Murdo, SD 57559.
Questions may also be directed
to your local elected county offi-
cials: Steve Iwan, Helen Louder,

Master Gardener news - Native plants
When planning your next land-
scape project, consider using
native species. Native plants tend
to grow better than introduced
species because they have evolved
under local growing conditions.
Native plants are less prone to dis-
ease and, once established, require
less watering and fertilizer than
non-native species. There are
trees, shrubs, grasses, and wild-
flowers to choose from. There is a
mirage of wildflowers blooming
right now. Native plants come in a
vast array of colors--blooming and
adding interest to your landscape
throughout the year.
If you want a formal looking
yard, group similar plants and col-
ors together, with spacing wide
enough to allow plant distinction.
If you prefer a more natural look,
scatter a variety of plants at ran-
dom. Then, allow the plants to
grow into each other, providing a
free flowing form. Whatever your
design, the soft pastels of delicate
wildflowers are a welcome sign of
spring. In winter, tall grasses and
silhouettes of leafless shrubs add a
texture to the landscape that a
mowed lawn will never offer.
Be aware that many localities
have laws or ordinances against
digging up native plants for trans-
planting. Native species should be
obtained from reputable nurseries
and garden centers that offer a
selection most states have a native
plant society and contacts can be
found on the Internet.
Flowering plants you may want
to watch for and incorporate in
your yard are yarrow, leadplant,
columbine, coreopsis, coneflower,
blanket flower, dotted gayfeather,
beebalm, black eyed susan, spider-
wart and many more. Now would
be a good time to take a prairie
walk and see what is out there. I
found native plants performed
very well in last year’s drought.

Young people take flight
at summer ACE camp
Summer learning at South
Dakota State University will reach
new heights July 14 through 17
when high school students go
beyond a typical classroom experi-
ence to receive hands-on aeronau-
tics training at ACE Camp.
“ACE camp has been instru-
mental over the past 20 years in
helping students make informed
choices when considering career
paths in aviation,” said Cody
Christensen, camp coordinator
and certified flight instructor.
During the four-day, three-night
camp, students construct and
launch model rockets, learn how to
navigate an aircraft, tour an air
traffic control facility and receive
one-on-one flight instruction
behind the controls of a Cessna
172 airplane.
Campers also will tour the
South Dakota Air National Guard
headquarters in Sioux Falls for an
up-close look at the F-16 Falcon jet
fighter and travel to Watertown to
learn about aviation maintenance
and repair at Lake Area Technical
Since its inception in 1992, the
program has drawn more than 300
students from across South Dako-
ta and other states, including
Iowa, Minnesota, Nebraska, North
Dakota and Wyoming as well as
international countries.
ACE Camp is open to young
people going into grade nine
through 2013 high school gradu-
ates. The tuition cost is $300,
which includes lodging in an
SDSU residence hall, meals, activ-
ity fees, transportation during
camp and flight experience at the
“Young women, minorities and
those with disabilities are encour-
age to apply,” said Christensen.
“Camp scholarships are also avail-
able to qualified applicants.”
Applications are available on
the SDSU website at
Camp enrollment is limited to
30 students and will fill on a first-
come, first-serve basis.

Learning to identify plants and
understanding how grasslands are
used by producers, how they pro-

Dakota Wesleyan
offers online degrees
Digital DWU, an entirely online
educational experience, will
become a reality at Dakota Wes-
leyan University this fall.
The university will offer an
online Master of Business Admin-
istration beginning in August, as
well as continuing the online
Bachelor of Science degree for reg-
istered nurses currently holding
an associate’s degree.
Derek Driedger, associate pro-
fessor of English, has been named
associate dean of digital learning.
He has been leading the imple-
mentation process since early
“Dr. Driedger has a command-
ing sense of the evolving nature of
higher education,” said Amy
Novak, DWU president. “He
immerses himself in the technolo-
gy and examines strategies for
using digital technologies. Derek’s
goal-oriented leadership style,
scholarly engagement and excel-
lent integration of digital learning
into his classes have prepared him
to assume this important role for
Dakota Wesleyan.”
“We have offered online courses
for many years,” Driedger said,
“but this is the first time we will
offer degrees entirely online,
allowing anyone in any location to
earn a degree from Dakota Wes-
leyan University. As DWU steps
further into the world of digital
learning with online courses and
degrees, my role will be to oversee
online curriculum, help depart-
ments design online-friendly
courses and maintain a university-
wide consistency.”
The M.B.A. in strategic leader-
ship will be unique in that it will
focus on practical application
rather than theory. It is designed
for those working, or interested in
working, in nonpublicly traded
businesses rather than Fortune
500 companies. Learners will be
encouraged to collaborate on real-
world problem-solving in order to
transcend the experience from the
classroom into everyday life.
According to Driedger, it will be a
more applicable M.B.A. than is
currently offered regionally.
“About 80 percent of businesses
in our region are smaller, and they
require hands-on management
with an emphasis on personal
leadership,” he said. “We have
been developing curriculum for
this program for more than a year,
and we believe it will be well-
received because it will lead stu-
dents through real-world problem
solving exercises, with emphases
on communication and ethical
For those who have already
earned a baccalaureate degree, the
M.B.A. program is open to all aca-
demic disciplines and professional
backgrounds, creating a diverse
learning experience. The entrepre-
neurial and strategic leadership
focus of this program is enhanced
by a values-driven emphasis that
is informed by an active and
applied Christian worldview,
according to Driedger.
A key component of Digital
DWU is community. The virtual
campus and learning management
system will allow students to form
relationships and interact with
one another, as well as faculty
members, any time of day or night.
M.B.A. students will have the
option of taking one course or two
every eight weeks with sessions
beginning in August or January.
The RN-B.S. nursing program
builds upon previous knowledge
and provides an opportunity for
working nurses to focus on
enhancing their leadership and
management skills. The nursing
program was built to complement
the nurse’s previous work experi-
ence with new skills that will con-
tribute to professional and person-
al growth, according to Driedger.
“As we implement and assess
these programs throughout the
coming year,” he said, “we will con-
sider potential new online pro-
grams to add to Digital DWU.
Once we get the initial courses
running, we intend to be respon-
sive to the needs and interests of
students and the marketplace.”
Application information for
both programs is available on the
DWU website, www.dwu.edu.

Winter Wheat Variety Plot
Winter wheat faced significant
challenges this year, and the
SDSU Crop Performance Testing
(CPT) plots were certainly not
spared. Some of the locations have
already been destroyed in hopes of
raising other crops, while others
remain intact with hopes of gath-
ering viable yield data.
Besides providing yield, test
weight and other valuable infor-
mation, Winter Wheat CPT plots
also provide an opportunity for
producers to learn about new, up
and coming varieties. Between
plots being abandoned and posi-
tions open at SDSU Extension,
crop tours will be scaled back a lit-
tle this year, but Winter Wheat

Some Winter Wheat did not
Earlier this spring, many winter
wheat producers, agronomists and
crop insurance adjusters were
deliberating if winter wheat
stands were adequate, what yield
they might produce, and if the crop
vernalized. As discussed in past
articles, winter wheat must ver-
nalize in order to enter the repro-
ductive stage, i.e. elongate and
produce a seed head.
Again, in order for the vernaliza-
tion process to occur, the wheat
kernel must at least begin the ger-
mination process (at a minimum
absorb moisture and swell), then
go through a period of time at a
temperature below 48 degrees F.
This period of time can vary from
as little as a few days for some of
the early, “winter tender” vari-
eties; to as long as 3 weeks for the
later, winter hardy varieties. The
maximum temperature may also
vary slightly, depending on the
earliness/winterhardiness of the
variety. This process usually
occurs in the fall, before winter
sets in, if adequate soil moisture is
present to germinate the seed.
Vernalization can also occur dur-
ing the winter if warm spells begin
the germination process, or early
in the spring.
It is virtually unheard of for fall
planted winter wheat not to ver-
nalize in South Dakota. The win-
ter wheat year of 2012-13 will cer-
tainly go down in the record books
in confirmation that this anomaly
can occur. As of June 19, there
were reports of winter wheat not
yet jointing, indicating that the
plants did not vernalize, and in
some fields, the majority did not.
There is no way to determine for
sure a winter wheat plant vernal-
ized until it elongates or fails to do

in Chance’s room for some action.
As I said, not much happened
since the doctor just set up some
scans and things for the next day
and not right away. This was
when I found out how uncomfort-
able hospital chairs can be. They
had a reclining chair that was one
of the most hopeless things I have
ever had the misfortune to use.
For one thing, it had such a strong
spring that, if you pushed it back
into the reclining position, it
snapped you right back upright.
If I scooted as far back as possible
so most of my weight was on the
back, then it might stay that way
unless I moved. Secondly, the
arms of the thing had wooden tops
so they put your arms right to
sleep if you used them. My arms
had to be kept by my sides with
my hands in my lap. Neverthe-
less, I was tired enough to doze off
from time to time until Corinne
returned from the motel.
The rest of the day was spent
waiting around, going out to eat,
buying a few supplies and the
like. Corinne and I took turns
resting at the motel or keeping
guard at the room. We find that
one of us has to be with Chance
when he’s in a hospital or they try
to administer something to which
he is allergic or doesn’t tolerate
well. Sometimes, too, they need
advice on how to deal with our
They finally got to a scan with
dyes on Tuesday afternoon which
showed almost nothing except
that there might be a minor infec-
tion which could be treated with
some antibiotics. We thought we
might as well go back home, but
the doctor advised staying
overnight since Chance had been
anesthetized for the scan which
can cause problems that need to
be watched. We grudgingly agreed
and prepared for another night’s
stay. That was when I got a second
lesson in bad furniture. In
Chance’s room, besides the dread-
ful lounge chair, there was this
odd wide chair that, through vari-
ous weird manipulations, could be
made into a cot which was only
slightly softer than the floor—
very slightly. Still, when you’re
really tired, you can sleep on such
a thing with a little effort. I did for
several hours on and off between
caring for Chance.
What probably upset us the
most was that Chance went with-
out food for over twenty-four
hours. They thought his stomach
feeding tube might be misplaced
somehow and didn’t want to risk
using it. Since Chance can’t chew
and swallow worth a hoot, the
stomach tube is his only way of
getting nutrition. Finally after the
scan showed the tube was not
badly out of place, we could
resume feeding to his relief and
It was interesting to note that
Chance has a way about him that
makes people like him. When
nurses first come in to Chance’s
room, they enter with a certain
amount of trepidation since our
boy is autistic and they don’t quite
know what to expect. Before long,
however, they discover what a
sweetheart he is and start baby-
ing him something chronic. They
often later tell us he is their
favorite patient. It’s no wonder
Chance isn’t in any hurry to leave
since he enjoys all the attention
and action. His mother and I,
however, tire of huge parking lots,
the many ten-floor elevator rides,
fighting town traffic, and strug-
gling to get enough sleep. We were
more than ready to get home
about one in the afternoon on
Wednesday. Apparently we would
have been ahead to just have
Chance lie flat at home and apply
light pressure until the bleeding
stopped. Unfortunately, we didn’t
know that at the time. Neither did
we know the infection wasn’t so
minor and would give us fits the
rest of the week with high temper-
atures, low oxygen saturation,
racing heart, and the shakes. At
least that could be dealt with at
home with the help of our local
doctor. Anyway, so much for pent-
house vacationing. Next time
maybe we’ll go to a lake or some-
We spent three days of last week
vacationing in the penthouse
(10th floor) of the Rapid City hos-
pital. Son Chance rather enjoyed
himself. His mother and I not so
much. This all was occasioned by
Chance starting to bleed rather
profusely from around his stom-
ach tube late Sunday evening.
After turning several paper towels
red, we got a little spooked and
decided to bundle our boy up and
take him to the local emergency
There weren’t many sophisticat-
ed scanning devices locally to find
out exactly was going on, so Dr. H
recommended an ambulance ride
eighty miles father west to an
associated larger facility. As a
result, Chance and Corinne were
on their way before very long. I
gassed up the car, gathered a few
supplies, and followed on behind.
By about sunrise, we were at the
big hospital in the “admit” (admit-
tance) department. An hour or two
after that found us ensconced in a
room on the tenth floor. Then
nothing much happened until a
doctor wandered in mid-after-
noon. Fortunately, the bleeding
had mostly stopped except for a
short outburst when Chance stood
up in moving from the ambulance
cart to a bed.
Since we hadn’t had much sleep,
we checked into a motel where
Corinne took a nap and I waited

Letter to the editor
To the Editor:
The laws on erosion control and
the county’s powers and responsi-
bilities are mainly contained in
SDCL Titles 46A, 31, 38, and 7.
They are very complex, and con-
tain several methods and options
for dealing with erosion control.
Unfortunately, the June 13, 2013,
Murdo Coyote attempted to sum-
marize the last county commis-
sioners’ meeting about erosion
issues within the county and in
the process mischaracterized and
misrepresented a number of state-
ments I made at that meeting.
Other statements were taken out
of context. It is impossible to sum-
marize the laws on this issue in a
basic news article. There are
entire books and law review arti-
cles discussing the nuances and
details of the issues.
The county commissioners dis-
cussed a number of options and
situations in reviewing which of
those possibilities are best suited
for Jones County. Of course, the
county commission meetings are
open to the public and members of
the public who wish to hear the
full discussion are entitled to

Gov. Daugaard approves
bonds for home loans
For the first time since 2009,
the Governor has approved a large
issuance of mortgage bonds from
the South Dakota Housing Devel-
opment Authority (SDHDA) to be
used to finance loans for first time
“The increase of demand in our
housing market is an indication
that South Dakota’s economy is
recovering,” said Gov. Dennis Dau-
gaard. “As more are buying homes
for the first time or considering
homeownership, South Dakotans
seem to have a renewed sense of
The SDHDA has been purchas-
ing single-family loans since 1973,
but has not had a large bond issue
without federal subsidies since the
recession in 2009.
The bonds going to the First-
Time Homebuyer Program total
$67 million and will fund home
loans for approximately 600 low-
to moderate-income South
According to the SDHDA, the
increased demand for homes this
year has been substantial.
Through April of 2013, the number
of first time homebuyer loans
increased by 95 percent in compar-
ison to 2012, and by 23 percent in
comparison to 2011, the last year
of the $8,000 federal tax credit for
homebuyers funded with federal
stimulus dollars.

Ordinance 2013 -7
An Ordinance To Establish Mobile
Home Requirements
City of Murdo
Chapter 9 of the Ordinances of the City
is herewith amended by adding thereto a
new section reading as follows:
DEFINITION: Manufactured or Mobile
Home means: a structure, transportable
in one or more sections, which in the
traveling mode is 8 body feet or more in
width or 40 body feet or more in length or
which when erected on-site is 320 or
more square feet, and which is built on a
permanent chassis and designed to be
used as a dwelling with or without a per-
manent foundation when connected to
the required utilities, and includes the
plumbing, heating, and electrical sys-
tems contained in the structure. This
term includes all structures that meet the
above requirements except the size
requirements and with respect to which
the manufacturer voluntarily files a certi-
fication pursuant to § 3282.13 of this
chapter and complies with the construc-
tion and safety standards set forth in this
part 3280. The term does not include any
self-propelled recreational vehicle. Cal-
culations used to determine the number
of square feet in a structure will include
the total of square feet for each trans-
portable section comprising the complet-
ed structure and will be based on the
structure's exterior dimensions meas-
ured at the largest horizontal projections
when erected on site. These dimensions
will include all expandable rooms, cabi-
nets, and other projections containing
interior space, but do not include bay
A. A mobile home on a single lot may be
permitted after a public hearing for use
on review if it meets the following
1. The mobile home shall be
on a lot, which meets the min-
imum size requirements of the
district in which the lot is locat-
ed. All setback and yard
requirements shall be met.
The front setback shall be at
least 10 feet. Only one mobile
home shall be allowed per
Fifty (50) foot lot frontage.
2. All mobile homes shall meet
Local, State, and Federal
Building Codes concerning
their construction.
3. All mobile homes shall be
connected to all utilities prior
to and during occupancy.
4. The mobile home shall be
provided with uniform skirting
from the bottom of the walls to
the ground within thirty (30)
days of move in. This skirting
must be constructed of fire
retardant material. The siding
on the exterior of the mobile
home must be, finished mate-
rial of uniform appearance
securely attached to the
mobile home.
5. The mobile home shall be
tied to ground anchors and
this tie down system shall
meet the requirements of 24
CFR § 3280.306 Windstorm
protection. It shall meet wind
loads associated with the City
of Murdo. All ground anchors
shall be embedded below the
frost line.
6. Existing mobile homes,
located within the City of
Murdo on the effective date of
this ordinance, not meeting
the above requirements as
well as the construction stan-
dards of 24 CFR § 3280 in
effect in the year the mobile
home was constructed, may
be declared a public nuisance
upon a finding by the council,
following a hearing that condi-
tions within the mobile home
are hazardous to human
health and habitation.
7. Any mobile home not
attached to City utilities or
unoccupied for more than 6
months, may be declared a
The Clinical View
• Dr. P.E. Hoffsten •
Most of the general public
knows that high blood pressures,
high cholesterol, diabetes mellitus
and smoking cigarettes are the 4
major factors associated with
heart attacks and strokes. Heredi-
ty plays a significant low in perpe-
trating these factors on the indi-
vidual. However, psychologists
have long suspected that there are
behavioral traits a person has that
mark them for shortened life span.
One of these factors is “angry all
the time”. A second factor is social
isolation in which the person
avoids interaction with groups and
other individuals. A third personal
characteristic that marks a person
for a shortened life span is pes-
simism. There are several large
convincing studies confirming that
a pessimistic attitude predisposes
to self-destructive behavior. A self-
talk psychologist, Dr Herman
Witte, studied a number of individ-
uals characterized as pessimistic.
He then listened for the self talks
these pessimistic individuals used.
They included:
1. I will never get this right.
2. I can’t win.
3. Things will never be the same.
4. What I am doing is useless and
A pessimistic attitude origi-
nates from repeated unsuccessful
attempts that imply that the
future will be equally unsuccess-
ful. A second justification pes-
simistic individuals use to defend
their attitude is the idea that once
an event occurs, it can very infre-
quently “be undone”. Once a per-
son is fired from a job, it is unlike-
ly they will be rehired at the same
place. Once a potential partner
has chosen someone else, it is
unlikely that the relationship can
be reestablished. Once the out-
come of game is decided, it is not
going to change. Thus, the attitude
propagates the above self talks as
one recognizes that negative
events are rarely reversible and
often difficult to recover from.
The self-defeating aspect of a
pessimistic attitude is that the
person ceases to try. This results
in “learned helplessness”. They
give up efforts to improve their sit-
uation, often becoming dependent
on others in an unhealthy co-
dependent manner. The optimistic
and constructive response to this
attitude is to reject the learned
helplessness amotivational atti-
tude and recognize that:
1. Granted that events are irre-
versible, recognize that time
changes the importance of many
events and also the relative
impact. Continuing to plan for the
future is a healthy attitude.
2. When what you are doing does
not work, recognize that behavior
needs to be changed. Don’t keep
doing what you are already doing
because you have shown that does-
n’t work. A person needs to recog-
nize that they need to change their
behavior and their efforts.
Dr. Witte offered a group of self
talks to practice instead of using
the self-defeating irrational self
talks as above. His self talks
acknowledge that change is
expected. People do get over the
pain of grief, anger and injustice
that has been perpetrated upon
them. Dr. Witte’s self talks allow a
person to get over a major adverse
event and get on with their life.
His recommendations included:
1. I know this too shall pass and
my pain will be tolerable. I will
spend my efforts learning from
this experience so as to avoid it in
the future or diminish my pain the
next time this occurs.
2. Maybe I can’t change what has
occurred but I can adjust to it so as
to lessen my own discomfort.
3. By learning from this experi-
ence, I can consider other ways to
attack a problem. I shouldn’t give
up until I have thought this out
clearly and weighed my efforts and
chances for success.
Being pessimistic is stressful by
itself. It leads to major health
problems. The word “homeostasis”
is applied to the observation that
the individual tends to maintain
their internal environment at the
same level day to day. The brain
controls various mechanisms used
to keep the body’s internal envi-
ronment the same. The brain also
maintains homeostasis by regulat-
ing the amount of various hor-
mones and functions of various
organs. In times of high environ-
mental demand (chronic stress)
increased organ function and hor-
mone release occurs. One aspect of
the body’s internal environment
may be sacrificed to preserve
another more important function.
Modern medical thoughts tend to
regard the body’s adjustment to
high environmental demand as
the disease process itself such as
hypertension, fever, insomnia, etc.
But the real truth is that the
body’s adjustment to high demand
is not the basic underlying prob-
lem. In today’s world, the real dis-
ease process begins with the social
environment which stimulates
and demands constant unremit-
ting coping (high stress). How to
manage a farm operation or the
company store or a law practice is
much more complicated in today’s
world than what our ancestors had
to deal with 10,000 years ago. Add
a pessimistic attitude to today’s
high stress level and the individ-
ual often becomes frustrated
resorting to “learned helpless-

First reading: May 6, 2013
Second Reading and Approval: June 5,
The bids on the North Dam Haying for a
2 year period were opened at this time.
Three bids were received and two bids,
one from Mike Barnes and the other from
Hunter Iversen were tied. Council decid-

NEW BUSINESS: West Central Electric
Coop has indicated they would like to
extend the lease on the pole yard above
the City park for another year and coun-
cil was fine with that. Robin Stoner from
Murdo Housing notified Barnes that one
of the current members up for re-
appointment would like to be off of the
board and asked the council to consider
some other possibilities before appoint-
ment in August.
One bar owner in Murdo has asked that
council consider re-writing their ordi-
nance on alcohol sales on Memorial Day
to match state code. Council will have
Barnes look into this. At this time, the
malt beverage licenses were reviewed.
Barnes stated all fees were paid and
applications signed. A motion to approve
the following licenses was made by Wad-
dell, seconded by Jost as follows:
Anchor In – off sale; Rusty Spur – off
sale, Farmers Union – on/off sale;
Richard and Tim Hullinger – on/off sale;
Pilot Travel Center – on/off sale; Doris
Convey – on/off sale; Star Restaurant –
on/off sale.
Mayor Geisler brought to council’s atten-
tion that the outdoor tennis/basketball
courts were in serious need of repair and
council discussed some options. Some
investigation will be done on this. Also at
this time, council discussed leaking
around the firewall between the Technol-
ogy Center and the Auditorium and Kins-
ley stated he would look at what he might
think the problem is then the City could
visit with the school about a repair.
Being no further business, council
adjourned at 10:00 p.m.
