Local 4-H participates in Jones County Youth in Action Day
The Jones County Youth In
Action Day was held at the Parish
Tech Center in Murdo, SD on May
31, 2013.
Fourteen 4-H’ers talked their
way through public presentations
including Demonstrations, Public
Speaking and Illustrated Talks.
Demonstrations allow the presen-
ter to show an accurate step-by-
step process of actions that result
in a finished product.
Receiving ribbons in this cate-
gory were Sr. Kathlene Boyle with
a blue ribbon demonstration on
“How to Make Slush.” Receiving a
Top Purple ribbon in the Jr. divi-
sion was Austin Olson with “Mak-
ing Your Own Sports Drinks.” In
the Beginner division, Wyatt
Olson received the Top Purple
award for “Loom Bead.” Other
Purple ribbon beginners were
Mesa Roghair for a demonstration
on “How to Make Kool Aid” and
Seth Schoon of Mellette County for
his demonstration on “How to
Gather, Clean and Sort Eggs.”
Blue ribbon winners were Dylan
Fuoss who showed us how to make
a Wood Picture, Madelyn Host for
her demonstration on “Glow in the
Dark Fairies,” and Annalee
Roghair’s demonstration on
Illustrated Talks show how
something is accomplished using a
combination of speaking about the
subject and using visual aids. Jr.
Jacob Birkeland explained “4-H
Archery Divisions” to the audience
and received a Top Purple ribbon
for his effort while Matthew Birke-
land illustrated “The Parts of a
Bow” and earned a Top Purple in
the Beginner Division.
4-H’ers entering the Public
Speaking Contest were Jr. Molly
Dowling with an oral history of
Johnny Cash. For her efforts she
received the Top Purple award. Jr.
Jake Dowling was awarded a pur-
ple ribbon for his speech and
power-point about Tasmanian
Devils and Beginner Ty Fuoss,
dressing the part, told about
James Scotty Philip and how he
saved the buffalo which earned Ty
a blue ribbon.
Throughout the day, a Con-
sumer Decision Making contest
was held in which youth were
asked to rank possible purchases
and be able to give reasons as to
why they placed their purchases
the way they did. The classes
judged were Flash Drives, Laun-
dry Detergent, Toothpaste, Sav-
ings Accounts and Digital Cam-
eras. The results of this contest
will be available in an upcoming
Following a short lunch break,
4-H’ers fired up their ovens, stoves
and grills for the Iron Chef Compe-
tition. Sr. Kathlene Boyle made
Streamlined Chimichanga’s.
Those in the Jr. 4-H division
were Jacob Birkeland who grilled
Steak Kabobs, Morgan Feddersen
who made Crescent BBQ Squares,
and Austin Olson who prepared
Grandma Sue’s Porcupine Balls.
Beginner 4-H members cooking
were Matthew Birkeland with his
Lean Hamburger Taco’s, Ty Fuoss
who baked a Taco Braid, and
Wyatt Olson with Uncle Chad's
Chip Dip. All seven cooks were
presented with blue ribbons for
the afternoons work.
The Iron Chef Competition
allows aspiring chefs 75 minutes
to prepare a dish using a “special”
ingredient chosen by the 4-H Par-
ents and Leaders Association. The
contestants are judged on their
knowledge of nutrition, personal
grooming, skill in measuring, food
preparation technique, taste and
eye appeal. The special ingredient
used this year was beef and had to
be used in each dish prepared. The
beef used was purchased with a
grant through the South Dakota
Beef Council. Watch for more beef
promotion at Achievement Days.

Archery tournament provides lifetime memories for family
A sixth grade student from
Murdo represented South Dakota
at the National Archery in the
Schools Program (NASP) Tourna-
ment in Louisville, Kentucky.
After winning the top award in
his division at the South Dakota
NASP Tournament, Jacob Birke-
land had the honor of representing
the state at the national NASP
tournament. The national tourna-
ment was held on May 10-12.
“It was an overwhelming expe-
rience with all the people there,”
Birkeland said. “I started archery
so I could learn how to shoot a bow
and go deer hunting and now I’m
shooting with 10,000 other kids in
a national tournament.”
NASP is sponsored by the
Game, Fish and Parks Depart-
“Game, Fish & Parks congratu-
lates Jacob on his outstanding per-
formance at the national NASP
tournament,” Jason Kool, GFP
NASP Coordinator, said. “Jacob
exemplifies the type of young
ambassador for our state that
everyone can be proud of.”
When asked about his future in
archery, Jacob said “I want to con-
tinue to participate in state,
national and maybe even the
world tournament and I still can’t
wait to go deer hunting!”
The national tournament was a
family affair for the Birkeland’s.
Jacob’s mother, father and brother
also traveled to Louisville to watch
him compete. “We made memories
to last a lifetime,” said Jacob’s
father, Jeff. “It was a great learn-
ing experience for the kids and a
great little vacation for mom and
Jacob competed at the highest
level at the Louisville tournament.
With approximately 10,000
archers competing in the national
event, Jacob finished in the top
three percent of all age divisions
with a score of 282 out of 300. In
the elementary division, Jacob
placed 25th and 18th among all
sixth graders.

On Saturday June 1, Trace,
Karen and Terry Dowling attend-
ed the memorial services for
cousin Kay (Gallimore) McGinty
in Hill City. She was the daughter
of Dorothy (Dowling) Gallimore.
Luke and Sawyer Dowling are
the proud parents of the early
arrival of a baby girl born on June
3 in Pierre. Her name is Emry
Jean and weighed six pounds and
is 18-1/2 inches long. Grandpar-
ents sharing in the joy are Bernie
and Chloe Stulken of Selby and
Trace and Karen Dowling of Drap-
er. Congratulations to all!
We wanted moisture and we
have been getting it. The country

Nelva and Janet Louder spent
last Tuesday in Pierre. Janet had
a therapy session and then to
Parkwood for coffee and visits
with Mona Sharp, Ken Halligan,
Arlyne Brown and Lillian Sev-
eryn. Lillian’s son, Dan, was also
there to visit with her.
Following the Memorial Day
service and dinner, Alice Horsley
visited Bonne Dowling and girls,
Sophie and Maggie.
Slight mixup in last weeks’
news: Ray and Shirley Vik were at
Margaret and Greg Rankin’s
when Roger Vik and daughter
Patti were there. It ended up in
the wrong Rankin gathering.
Esther Magnuson and Kathie
Mason spent last Friday in Rapid
City. Kathie kept an appointment
and I guess there was a little
shopping. I’m sure there must
have been a little eating, too.
On Sunday at the Magnuson
farm, there seemed to be a crowd
there working cattle. Terri Pelle
and Heather Whitney brought in
food for the group, plus helped
with the cattle.
Margie Boyle left for LaCrosse,
Wis., on May 21. She spent the
week with daughter Brenda and
James Murray, Sam and Ben.
While there she helped grandson
Sam celebrate his fourth birthday
with a party that included his lit-
tle friends; his grandpa, Gary
Boyle of Gillette, Wyo.; and other
relatives. Margie enjoyed her time
spoiling those grandsons and
returned home on May 29.
Lila Mae Christian left after
church on May 19 for Valpraiso,
Neb., where she met daughter Pat
of Rapid City at the home of Cody
and Shanna Potters. Pat had
spent a few days there. From
there, the two went onto Lindsey,
Okla., for the graduation of grand-
daughter/niece Kaylyn Ricke from
high school on May 23. A party for
her was held on Saturday
evening. Kaylyn is the daughter of
Delores and Kevin. Lila Mae and
Pat traveled through where the
Moore tornado went – hard to
believe the damage. They
returned home on Memorial Day.
Karen Authier, Pierre, spent
Sunday with Mom Margaret
Rankin and brother Greg.
Casey and Gavin Miller visited
Grandma Janet and Grandpa
Nelva Louder Saturday afternoon.
Gavin will be playing his first t-

and Josie Mertens attended bap-
tismal services for Camden Erik-
son, son of Chris and Alicia Erik-
son, on Sunday, June 2.
Ray and Janice Pike headed for
the hills on Tuesday of last week.
They spent the days camping and
kept a couple of appointments.
The highlight of the week was
attending the Cressy reunion on
Saturday. It was held at the home
of Robin (Cressy) and Todd Eddy
near Johnson Siding. Approxi-
mately 60 people enjoyed a
potluck supper and a time of rem-
iniscing. Some you may know that
were there were: Jr. and Leone
Cressy; their daughter, Donna
and Tim Hoard; Bob Rankin;
Gene and Carol Cressy; Patty
Cressy; Kathy and Lonny Roth;
Jake Cressy, daughter and friend.
A good time was had. The Pikes

that grandpa and grandma can
spoil the girls.

but it will be some time before the
broken arm allows her to start to

We’ll be sure to update you on her
condition as time goes on.

May Mednansky, age 91 of
White River, S.D., died Thursday,
May 30, 2013, at the Maryhouse in
Juanita “May” Shouldis Med-
nansky was born to Charles and
Mary A. (Atkins) Shouldis, Decem-
ber 12, 1921, in Mellette County.
May married Clarence Mednan-
sky in Valentine, Neb., September
16, 1940. Three children were born
to this union: Audrey (Ed) Bur-
nette, Pierre, Rodney (Oleta) Med-
nansky and Janice Ellis, White
River. From there the family grew
to include grandchildren, Angela
(David) Aud, Great Mills, Md.,
Guy (Michele) Burnette, Califor-
nia, Md., Sonya (Josh) Feaster,
Tucson, Ariz., Justin (Dena) Med-
nansky, Richard Mednansky and
Duane Mednansky, White River,
Chad (Margarita) Ellis, Mexico,
and Tricia Shedeed, Otter Tail,
Minn.; great-grandchildren, Joey,
Brandy, Bailey, Sage, Taylor,
Sharissa, Ashton, Logan, Justin,
Kade, Alexandra, Michelle,
Nathan, Lauren, Kaise, Adam,
Matthew, James and Alana; and
proud to have Nova Maylynn as
her great-great-granddaughter.
May barely answered to being
called Juanita but loved being
called Mom, Grandma, Grandma
Great, Aunt or Auntie May. May
sometimes spelled with an “e”,
sometimes with a “y”, just to keep
us on our toes. When asked about
doing something here lately, her
come back would be, “Well, I’m
ONLY 91!” She loved her family
and friends, going to the grand-
kids’ programs, concerts and
games. She loved seeing the sun
and moon rise and set, working
with the livestock, admiring the
birds and flowers and all that
nature provided.
May was a sweet, hardworking,
quiet country girl. She worked side
by side with Clarence on the farm/
ranch as well as maintaining the
house and preparing the greatest
meals. The farm was a vacation
spot to many nieces and nephews
growing up and later to her grand-
children. Moving from “home” to
town was a big adjustment for
both May and Clarence.
After moving to town, she
enjoyed bird watching and neigh-
bor watching! She knew what
every bird was and what every
neighbor was doing. She was look-
ing forward to sitting on her new
deck this summer and had plans
for flowers she would be able to
enjoy as she soaked up the sun-
shine. May loved playing canasta,
solitaire, embroidering and cro-
cheting. May embroidered towels
that are raffled off at the Mednan-
sky family reunion and has them
ready for this year!
May was an active and proud
member of the Cottonwood Ladies
Aide and so enjoyed her monthly
outing. She often took a quarter
rather than a dime for lunch – the
big spender she was! May came
home full of news and reported on
what lunch consisted of and, of
course, wasn't really hungry for
supper that night.
May fought a courageous battle
but was overcome by kidney and
congestive heart failure. She was
one tough, brave woman to the
May was preceded in death by
her husband, Clarence, her par-
ents and her brothers and sisters,
as well as many special Shouldis
and Mednansky in-laws.
Services were held Tuesday,
June 4, at the White River Com-
munity Events Center with Pastor
Craig Marshall officiating.
Music was provided by Linda
Blom with special music by great-
grandson, Sage Mednansky.
Guest book attendants were
Barb “Susie” Ketel and Michelle
Whitted. Ushers were Charles
“Pete” Shouldis and Bill Sinclair.
Pallbearers were Justin, Richard
and Duane Mednansky, Bruce
Boyd, Kevin Kusick and Dale
“Bobby” Wooden Knife. Honorary
pallbearers were the Cottonwood
Ladies Aide members and all of
May’s family and friends.
Interment was in the White

A few weeks ago, when our grandson was about 27 months old, we noticed him doing something incredibly cute. He had put on his daddy’s flip-flops
(a size 12) and was proudly walking around the room with a big smile on his face. He has become a great, natural imitator of what he hears us say and sees
us doing. This got me to thinking that even we adults usually imitate someone.
Once Israel was in their promised land, “the people refused to obey the voice of Samuel; and they said, Nay; but we will have a king over us; that we
also may be like all the nations…” (I Sam. 8:19-20). This was an unwise decision on the part of Israel. God had been governing them through a series of
judges who represented the Lord. These judges certainly were not perfect, but this had been God’s design. Jehovah’s response to their virtual demand to
Samuel to give them a king was, “they have not rejected thee, but they have rejected me, that I should not reign over them” (I Sam. 8:7).
This pattern of imitating the world later worsened. “They rejected His [the Lord’s] statutes, and His covenant…and became vain, and went after the hea-
then that were round about them, concerning whom the Lord had charged them, that they should not do like them” (II Kings 17:15). Throughout the Old
Testament, God’s people frequently became too close and familiar with the lost people around them. In the case of Lot, he first pitched his tent toward Sodom
but before long he was living within the city and had completely lost his testimony. In other instances, Israel made treaties with the heathen nations, began
to intermarry with them, and in short order began to worship their false gods. They were imitating the wrong things and the wrong people.
This same danger is still entrapping many believers in our day. Far too often, we are unduly influenced by the way the lost in our society talk, dress,
think, and by what they embrace as acceptable, even when these things are clearly displeasing to the Lord. We believers are too often caught in the trap of
being overly occupied with sports, recreation, leisure time, and hobbies to the neglect of spiritual things and the Lord’s local work. The Lord has something
far better in mind for us, and someone far better to imitate.
The Lord tells us in Romans 12:2: “Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that
good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” As believers, our lives are to be so transformed that there is a marked difference between us and the unsaved.
Our standard ought not to be what the world is doing, or what the latest fad dictates. Our standard should be what would please and honor the Lord. There
is no virtue in being weird, strange, or odd. These things do not enhance our testimony or effectiveness as a representative of the Lord Jesus Christ. Nonethe-
less, we believers should be different from the world in many ways.
Believers do have someone they should be imitating. We should “mark them [godly believers] which walk so as ye have us for an ensample” (Phil. 3:17).
Godly, knowledgeable Christians who followed Paul as he followed Christ and are fervent in their walk with Christ are the ones we should imitate.

“For God so LOVED the world
that He gave His One and only Son
that whoever believes in Him shall
not perish but have eternal life.”
John 3:16
Mary's mother was called over to
a sick neighbor. Since her mother
was not through washing dishes,
Mary decided to finish the dishes
as a surprise. May did not know
exactly how it happened, but crash
went one of her mother's best dish-
By the time, Mary finished the
dishes, she had decided that she
would not say anything to her
mother. “Maybe mother won't
notice!” she thought.
The rest of the day, Mary did not
feel like eating. She did not enjoy
playing with her friends. At night
she could not sleep.
Finally she went downstairs to
her mother who was doing dishes,
and she cried as though her heart
would break. Her mother let her
cry. Her loving mother was waiting
for one thing --- for her daughter to
tell the truth.
“Mother, I can't sleep,” sobbed
Mary. “I have to tell you something.
Today when I washed the dishes, I
broke a plate from the good set.
Will you forgive me?”
How glad Mary's mother was as
she hugged her little girl! Of
course, I will,” she said. “You're a
brave little girl to come to tell me.
It wasn't easy to tell mother you
had broken the plate. But now, how
good we both feel that you came
and told me. Next time come right
away. When you tell mother you're
sorry and ask for forgiveness,
everything is right again. Now let
us go to God for His forgiveness too,
and then you can go to bed and
sleep well.”
It is like that at church...we sin
during the week, we come to
church to confess our sins and have
our sins forgiven.
Mary's heart was glad when her
mom forgave her after she con-
fessed her sin. God too forgives us
when we come to Him and confess
our sins,,,and it is also something
we should do..when we sin against
people. We should go to them and
ask for forgiveness...and prayerful-
ly they will forgive us.
And then when we come up to the
LORD'S Table and eat and drink
His Body and Blood for the forgive-
ness of our sins...how happy we
should be that we are forgiven.
Many times I have heard people
say why is the Pastor so happy
doing communion....and I will tell
them it is for forgiveness of sins
and we should be happy that God
has forgiven us and we should
rejoice....and as we leave the
LORD'S Table we should be smil-
ing and rejoice in what a loving
God and Savior that we have...
For God so LOVED the world
that He have His One and only Son
that whoever believes in Him has
eternal life. And that indeed is
something to rejoice about.
We pray...Dear Father, how often
we have sinned. Help us to truly
confess our sins to you and to our
neighbor that we have sinned
against, and enable to be truly
happy, be rejoiceful in the forgive-
ness that comes through Jesus
Christ our Savior. In His name we
pray. Amen.

inition is a plan to lessen or elimi-
nate the effects of disasters on peo-
ple and property. Our County has
entered into agreement with
Northern Tier Consulting LLC to
develop a Pre-Disaster Mitigation
Plan that will work with County

Churches and Citizens to complete
all aspects of hazard identifica-
The Multi-Hazard Mitigation
Plan is a comprehensive resource
document that serves many pur-
poses, including: enhancing public
awareness and understanding,
creating a decision tool for man-
agement, promoting compliance
with State and Federal program
requirements, enhancing local
policies for hazard mitigation
capability, and providing inter-
jurisdictional coordination. The
Federal Disaster Mitigation Act of
2000 requires all local govern-
ments to create such a disaster
plan in order to qualify for funding
in the future.

Never give up on
Winter Wheat?
“Never” is an extreme term, and
certainly should be reserved for
extreme situations. Although win-
ter wheat is a tough crop and
known for surprising growers and
agronomists with its resilience,
there are times when abandoning
fields are justified.
In the spring of 2013 there was a
great deal of lost sleep over the
decisions to keep winter wheat
fields, destroy them and plant
another crop, or interseed a forage
crop to add to the volume of live-
stock feed hoped for at harvest. In
the end, there were many cases of
all three decisions arrived at.
Many of the decisions were heavi-
ly influenced by crop insurance
adjustments, which provided
There is still uncertainty as to
how the fields remaining intact
will turn out at harvest, but the
recent moisture has produced dra-
matic improvement in their
appearance and condition. At the
time many fields were adjusted,
the main concerns were plant den-
sity, the uncertainty as to whether
the plants vernalized, and the
lateness of development.
Plant density is very closely
related to yield, and being some-
what compensated for as cool,
moist conditions have promoted
tillering. Tillering cannot compen-
sate for large areas with no plants,
but the worst of those fields were
the ones abandoned. Even the win-
ter wheat that didn’t germinate or
emerge until spring is now begin-
ning to joint in south-central
South Dakota, which would not
occur if it didn’t vernalize. There
may be plants that did not vernal-
ize, which should be easy to see in
the near future, if not already as
they will not elongate and produce
nodes or heads. The remaining
concern is the lateness of develop-
ment and maturity. Yields and test
weight will depend heavily on tem-
peratures and soil moisture as the
crop is flowering and completing
grain fill. Scouting and properly
managing weeds, insects and dis-
eases according to IPM principles
will be an important factor that
growers have some control over.

gardeners when I was young.
Grandma was very good at it, and
Mom was okay although I don’t
think she enjoyed it much. I
helped with some of the weeding
and the picking of such things as
peas, beans and cucumbers. After
a while, I became the main gar-
dener in the family except for corn
and potatoes which were Dad’s
favorites. My main problem at
first was getting carried away and
planting such a huge garden that
I couldn’t properly tend it all.
Sometimes it also produced more
stuff than we needed or could
freeze, can, or give away. When
those nifty seed catalogs come in
the dead of winter, it looks so easy,
and you decide you’d like to try
this, and that and some of those.
The first rule of gardening, then,
is to avoid getting carried away.
Only plant what you have the
time and energy to tend and not
more than you can reasonably
use. I came to that conclusion the
hard way and only through expe-
When it comes to watering, I did
come up with a system that
worked pretty well for me. I would
drag out the old two-row corn lis-
ter and hitch it to the little Ford
tractor. I made deep lister rows
going slightly downhill, and plant-
ed in the bottom of the rows.
Then I could run water down the
rows instead of sprinkling the
whole garden. This worked best if
I used some mulch as well to keep
the water from evaporating right
away in the hot days of July. My
main problem here was my father
who had learned in planting field
corn in the early years that corn
should be hilled up. If he got in
the garden, he tended to not only
fill in my lister rows but hill them
up as well. This made watering
extremely difficult because water
runs off hills and doesn’t do the
plants there much good. As a
result, I encouraged Dad to raise
his corn and potatoes in a differ-
ent place than I gardened so he
wouldn’t start hilling all my stuff.
Then, after experimenting with
everything from huckleberries to
kohlrabies, it finally occurred to
me that what I most needed to
grow were those things that taste
much better home raised than
purchased. Tomatoes and cucum-
bers, as you probably know, are
ever so much better home raised.
Melons may fit in that category
too, but I don’t hunger for those as
much as I do for tomatoes and
cucumbers. On the other hand,
my taste buds are not sufficiently
sophisticated to tell much differ-
ence between onions and potatoes
raised or purchased. There is one
exception to that in those little
early potatoes you scratch around
and pull out before they’re com-
pletely mature. Those are tasty.
One other rule I started to follow
was to plant nothing that was a
complete bug magnet. This espe-
cially applies to potatoes and any
member of the cabbage family.
Dad didn’t seem to mind strolling
down a row of spuds, picking off
the potato bugs, and throwing
them in a coffee can he carried
that had a little gas in the bottom.
I didn’t have quite enough
patience for that. Cabbage worms
are harder to pick off so insecti-
cide is the usual recourse there. I
don’t like insecticides so my cab-
bage, broccoli, cauliflower and the
like come to me by way of the gro-
cery store. They probably have to
use insecticide to grow them too,
but I just wash them really well
when I get them.
Well, as often has happened to
me in my life, once I’ve experi-
mented with something to the
enth degree and worn myself out
with it, I somewhat lose interest
and go on to other things. That’s
sort of the way it is for me with
gardening. As a result, my efforts
this year only involve two potted
tomato plants and a few pots of
cucumbers. They say gardening is
good for the soul, so I hope those
few plants will sufficiently nour-
ish that part of me. If not, I can
always expand next year. Even
then, however, I probably won’t
get carried away. I think in this
case I’m better off following
another favorite rule of mine
which is, “Keep it simple, Stupid.”
Not a bad idea when it comes to
gardening in good old South
Dakota where the odds are some-
what stacked against us and dis-
aster can be just around the cor-
ner. Yet we still keep right on try-
ing. Why is that?
Gardening is an iffy proposition
here in western South Dakota.
We never have quite enough rain
so watering, except in highly
unusual years, is required. We
also have strong winds, hail,
plagues of grasshoppers, hot tem-
peratures, and various wild crit-
ters that like vegetables. If you do
insist on gardening and actually
raise something, you have over-
come the odds and can be proud of
Like many of you, I rather like
to play in the dirt and have done
quite a bit of it over the years. I
started out helping my mom and
grandmother who were the main

Calculating the success
of an A.I. program
Knowing the difference between
conception rate and pregnancy
rate has a big impact on cattle pro-
ducer’s bottom line says, Kalyn
Waters, SDSU Extension Cow/Calf
Field Specialist.
“When producers sit down to
figure out if they will use a
straight Time AI (TAI) synchro-
nization protocol (for example the
7-day CO-Synch+CIDR) or include
heat detection (for example the
Select Synch), or to calculate the
success of their breeding season at
its conclusion, this difference is
key,” Waters said.
Waters says there are three key
calculations cattle producers
should take into account: synchro-
nization rate percent or the per-
centage of females detected in
estrus compared to the total num-
ber of cattle synchronized; concep-
tion rate percent or the percentage
of pregnant females compared to
the number of females inseminat-
ed; and pregnancy rate percent or
the percentage of pregnant
females compared to the total
number synchronized.
“Many people will just look at
the overall pregnancy rate, howev-
er when evaluating the amount of
labor and resources to the number
of pregnancies achieved, all factors
should be included. Using concep-
tion rates as an indicator of the
overall success can be misleading.
Conception rate does not take into
account the number of females
that were not inseminated.”
Waters shares the following
Herd A, 100 head of cattle were
synchronized for breeding using
the Select Synch protocol, 50 of
them were detected in heat and
inseminated, resulting in 70 per-
cent of those females becoming
pregnant. And, in Herd B, 100
head were also synchronized using
the 7-day CO-Synch + CIDR and
bred, however this herd was bred
with a straight TAI that resulted
in 55 percent of the females
becoming pregnant.
“In using Herd A and Herd B as
an example, at first look, it seems
as though Herd A had the most
successful AI breeding season, but
often times producers fail to take
into account the number of
females that are not bred if TAI is
not used into their overall evalua-
tion,” Waters said.
She adds that in this case, while
Herd A had much higher concep-
tion rates, the 50-head that were
not inseminated were not taken
into account.
“Thus, taking all factors into
account, and evaluating these two
herds based on pregnancy rates,
which include all females, shows
that actually Herd B had greater
AI success than Herd A,” she said.
Waters said taking all three fac-
tors into consideration will help
producers best manage their
breeding season. In addition when
choosing an AI protocol for their
herd, producers need to consider
the females that will not be
exposed to AI breeding if TAI is not

The Clinical View
• Dr. P.E. Hoffsten •
Last week’s column had to do
with stress management and some
basic considerations. It was noted
by a Dr. Herman Witte in his
interviews with various patients
that certain patterns of speech
repeatedly were used by individu-
als undergoing stress related
counseling. He noted that there
was a basic irrational self talk that
was “it upsets me.” It was pointed
out that another researcher, Dr.
Edward Deci hypothesized that
the two basic drivers for human
behavior were self determination
and self satisfaction with result of
the choice the person made. Dr.
Witte pointed out that if, “it upsets
me” is something that the person
says to themselves, then “it” is
deciding how you will respond.
Whenever “it” occurs you get
upset. As such you have lost con-
trol of your self determination
which is so basic for your healthy
behavior. The important recogni-
tion to make is that “it” is not
upsetting you. You are upsetting
yourself. Once you recognize this,
you can choose not to be upset and
respond in a different healthier
Dr. Witte then listed six more
sayings that people used to gener-
ate their own stress. The first of
these he called general irrational
self talk number one. It has varia-
tions such as:
1. He should not do that.
2. People should not act that
3. This type of thing cannot be
4. Things must go according to
my demands/expectatios.
5. This goes against societies’
Dr. Witte noted that people who
had adverse stress responses fre-
quently used these quotes both in
their spoken language and quietly
internally to themselves. He called
these quotes demandedness lan-
guage. Note the sequence that
occurs. Specifically, “he shouldn’t
do that” implies that whatever
“it/that” is, something must be
done to change “it/that.” Dr. Witte
became interested in why people
would say, “he shouldn’t do that.”
The justifications that patients
responded with included:
1. I don’t act that way.
2. Their actions go against soci-
eties norms.
3. They never acted this way
4. They’re acting that way
upsets me.
Note that in response to the jus-
tifications offered it should be
noted that there are a number of
1. Who appointed me to set the
standards of behavior. I have my
values and rules but others also
have their own values and rules.
2. Not everyone okay’s societies
norms (which society?)
3. Peoples actions may change.
4. Please keep in mind they
don’t upset you, you upset your-
Dr. Witte then reviewed with
his patient’s the effects of general
irrational self talk number one
(they shouldn’t do that). Specifical-
1. This self talk generators a
fear of failure. If they shouldn’t do
that, something must be
done to change what they have
done. But that may not be possi-
ble and fear is generated regard-
ing what will happen if “it” cannot
be undone.
2. This self talk requires an
expenditure of effort to change
things that might not be change-
3. Often this self talk will gener-
ate a need for revenge and retribu-
tion. This is an extremely destruc-
tive response.
4. A demanding attitude
towards others regarding what
they should or shouldn’t do gener-
ates rebellion within the other per-
son. Specifically recognize that by
you telling them what they should
or should not do, you are taking
away their self-determination.
Dr. Witte then offered construc-
tive responses one can use instead
of “they shouldn’t do that.” Specif-
1. I wish (would prefer) that
people not behave like that. Note
the internal response a person has
to the use of this saying instead of
saying they shouldn’t do that.
Wishing somebody wouldn’t do
something is not demanding as
stating that they should not do
2. It is unfortunate, irritating,
inconvenient that this has hap-
pened but I can adjust and tolerate
the event.
3. Societies rules are desirable
and when followed tend to
decrease the conflict within the
group but there will always be
exceptions to the rule and people
who break the rules. It is probably
more beneficial to me to try to
understand and resolve differ-
ences, than to be come vengeful
and punitive.
4. Life does not owe me, change
and undesirable events are
inevitable. Dr. Witte generated a
list of eight words that have a
demandedness connotation. He
versed patients on using a second
group of eight words that removed
the demandedness context.
Demand language
1. Must
2. Should
3. Ought to
4. Have to
5. Need to
6. Got to
7. Supposed to
8. Will
Hoped for language
1. Want
2. Desire
3. Prefer
4. Wish
5. Like
6. Might/could
7. Hope
8. Would be nice if
Note that the second column of
words removes the demandedness
attitude towards the other person
and allows them to meet your
hopes if they would choose to.
In summary, General Irrational
Self Talk number one is about
demandedness and how you think
to yourself and address others.
Normal human behavior is to
resist others demands and conflict
is generated using this language

Pioneer Auto Show's 2013 Murdo
in May – a Community Event
Murdo in May, is an annual
event held in the small town of
Murdo, located just off of inter-
state 90 between Rapid City and
Chamberlain, SD.
The event consisting of a swap
meet, car show, car auction and
antique auction, attracts thou-
sands every year, and this year
was no exception. With an estimat-
ed 2,500 in attendance, and even
more registered for the newly
offered online auction, the entire
town gets involved in the excite-
ment and festivities. The event
this year was held May 10, 11 and
Kicking off the weekend was the
swap meet at Pioneer Auto Show
in the west lot on Friday. This was
a free event that set the fun tone
for the weekend, and ran through
Sunday, May 12. Crafts were
abundant from the entire region
including Sioux Falls, Iowa and all
of South Dakota.
The car show on Main Street
was sponsored by the Murdo
Chamber of Commerce. There was
50’s music for all to hear, and deli-
cious food was provided by the
Turner Youth Group. All of the
cars and tractors made it a great
The antique car auction, which
took place on Saturday, May 11,
was operated by Vanderbrink Auc-
tions out of Hardwick, MN. There
were approximately 200 on-site
bidders registered, along with an
additional 157 online registrations
for bidding. Some highlight sales
of the auction were:
1946 Dodge Truck Restored -
$4,000 sold to online bidder
1932 Ford Custom Streetrod -
$11,500 sold to onsite bidder
1968 AMC AMX Coupe -
$16,000 sold to onsite bidder
1963 R Code Galaxie - $21,000
sold to onsite bidder
1962 Chevrolet Corvette Road-
ster - $34,000 sold to onsite bidder
Dave Geisler Sr., owner of the
Pioneer Auto Museum said, “One
of the highlights for me was to see
the entire community participate
and get involved. The event may
have originated at Pioneer Auto
Show, but over the years it has
really become a celebration of the
entire town – many returning cus-
tomers and old friends making

An all-of-the-above approach
by Rep. Kristi Noem
The price of a gallon of gas near
my home in rural Hamlin County
is well over $4.00. In a state like
South Dakota, where families
often drive long distances to ball
games or into town for church or
groceries, rising gas prices can
have a significant impact on a
family’s or business’s bottom line.
Our country needs a plan for
energy independence that not only
works to lower energy costs, but
boosts our domestic economy and
creates jobs here at home. I contin-
ue to support and advocate for an
all-of-the-above American energy
policy. Through encouraging inno-
vation and continuing to support
renewable fuels, like ethanol and
other biofuels, we can take steps
towards a more secure, stable and
reliable energy supply.
In the House of Representa-
tives, we are looking at legislative
options to help families and busi-
nesses combat the pain at the
pump. Recently, the House passed
H.R. 3, the Northern Route
Approval Act, with bipartisan sup-
port. This bill removes the need for
a presidential permit and immedi-
ately authorizes the construction
of the northern route of the Key-
stone XL pipeline. Although this is
only one small piece of the puzzle,
increasing North American energy
production and sustaining our
domestic refining industry are
essential for energy independence.
There are numerous reasons
why gas prices fluctuate, but bad,
ineffective or a lack of federal poli-
cies shouldn’t be one of them. I’m
hopeful that Congress will contin-
ue to consider legislation that will
work to open up more federal land
for energy development, which will
increase our domestic energy sup-
ply and reduce our dependence on
unstable sources of oil.
Our country is full of untapped
resources – including natural gas.
The Potential Gas Committee
recently released the results of its
latest assessment of our nation’s
natural gas reserves. Because of
innovative new technologies, this
year’s assessment has risen 22.1
percent since 2010, the highest
evaluation in the 48-year history
of the committee. In the Williston
Basin in North Dakota, oil esti-
mates have doubled and natural
gas resources have tripled. Howev-
er, in order to take full advantage
of this natural resource, we need
to ensure that policies are in place
which will eliminate burdensome
regulations and unnecessary red
The House Energy & Commerce
Committee is currently consider-
ing the Energy Consumers Relief
Act, which would require the Envi-
ronmental Protection Agency
(EPA) to submit a report to Con-
gress detailing costs, energy price,
and job impacts before finalizing
any energy-related regulation that
costs more than $1 billion. While
this bill is still in committee, it
would provide for greater trans-
parency at the EPA and protect
consumers from higher energy
All options should be on the
table to ensure that American fam-
ilies are not forced to put even
more of their hard-earned dollars
toward filling their tanks. I hope
you’ll share your thoughts with me
about how we can lower energy
costs by contacting one of my
offices. Contact information is list-
ed below.
Doing our part to
prevent wildland fires
by Sen. John Thune
Living in South Dakota, we
know that the elements of nature
can be our greatest friend and also
our gravest enemy. On farms and
ranches across the state it is not
uncommon to see controlled burns
in pastures. In these summer
months, many of us enjoy roasting
marshmallows and hotdogs over
an open campfire, and lighting
fireworks around the Fourth of
July. Yet it takes just a small
increase in the wind from the
wrong direction, an extra-dry sea-
son, or careless eye on the camp-
fire for small fires to spread quick-
ly out-of-control.
On the western side of the state
we have become especially con-
cerned about fire season with the
spread of the pine beetle epidemic
in the Black Hills. Trees infested
by pine beetles are especially sus-
ceptible to fires, which can move
quickly putting life and property
in danger. Earlier this year, in an
effort to help combat forest fires, I
sent a letter to Chief of the U.S.
Forest Service, Tom Tidwell,
encouraging the agency to consid-
er the use of the Air Force’s soon-
to-be retired C-27J aircraft to fight
wildland fires in the Rocky Moun-
tain Region. Not only would the
aircraft help provide the Forest
Service with the tools needed to
fight wildland fires, but the opera-
tion of these aircraft could also
provide multiple benefits to our
economy if stationed at Ellsworth
Air Force Base. I have also intro-
duced legislation to cut red tape
and prioritize pine beetle treat-
ments within the U.S. Forest Serv-
Equipping the brave men and
women who fight our wildland
fires with the best possible tools is
just one important part of fire
safety and prevention. Each of us
must do our part to ensure that we
help preserve and protect some of
our country’s greatest national
treasures and the lives and per-
sonal property of our neighbors.

Sheriff Weber could not be present at
this time but his written report was pre-
sented. Council at this time reviewed
information regarding a COPS grant and
asked Barnes to visit with the County
Commissioners at their meeting the fol-
lowing day. They also reviewed a letter
being sent to the state regarding law
Hatheway presented the street report.
He discussed a request for a longer cul-
vert. Council did not feel this request
would be a good option for drainage but
recommended they be talked to about
curb and gutter instead. Hatheway dis-
cussed the dump hours and a sign and
the key. He informed council that the
beacon was stolen from one dump truck
and that his street meeting was can-
celled in April and moved until later in
May. Council discussed selling the old
cat at the dump. A motion to approve the
report was made by Connot, seconded
by Waddell.
Erikson gave the water report for the
month. He discussed a complaint con-
cerning rental rates and the rental agree-
ment was reviewed. As the individual
was not aware of the rates at the time of
rental, council decided to lower the bill
but keep the rates as they are. Council
instructed employees to make sure the
agreement is reviewed and signed
before items are rented.
Erikson discussed work at the pump
house, the swimming pool and the park.
He informed council about new laws
regarding sewer backups also. A motion
to approve the report was made by Dray-
er, seconded by Waddell.
Barnes presented the finance report at
this time. She reviewed with council the
pool manager salary as was set at the
previous meeting and that the per hour
rate was lower than previous and council
agreed that the rate was incorrect and
will be set at $1,450 per month. Barnes
asked that the June meeting be moved
to Wednesday, June 5, 2013 instead of
on the Monday as she will be gone to a
family wedding and council agreed. She
discussed the possibility of the City
sending a newsletter out periodically and
showed some samples of other towns. A
motion to approve the report was made
by Connot, seconded by Drayer.
OLD BUSINESS: The ordinance regard-
ing trailer homes in the city was reviewed
once again and first reading was given to
the ordinance. The assessment of costs
regarding the Ingalls property demolition
was discussed and a letter from the City
attorney on step towards this was
reviewed and council chose how they felt
was best to handle this.
NEW BUSINESS: A letter of support for
the railroad was reviewed and agreed to
send. A deed notice for the industrial
park was reviewed. This notice will help
in future transfer requirements for the
property and a motion was made by
Drayer, seconded by Waddell to author-
ize the Mayor to execute this document
and it to be filed.
Council agreed to advertise for bidding
on the haying of the North Dam area and
a letter regarding chickens in City limits
was reviewed and will be addressed in
future meetings. Being no further busi-
ness, council adjourned at 10:23 p.m.

Summer job tax information
Summer jobs offer students the
opportunity to make money and
learn some important life lessons
about the working world, includ-
ing taxes.
As a new employee, students fill
out a Form W-4, Employee’s With-
holding Allowance Certificate, so
their employer withholds the right
amount of taxes from regular pay,
bonuses, commissions, and vaca-
tion allowances.
Tips are taxable income so you
need to keep a daily log to record
them. If you receive $20 or more in
tips in any one month from any
one job, you must report the total
tips to your employer or report the
income on your tax return.
Self-employment income, from
jobs like baby-sitting and lawn
mowing, are subject to income tax.
If your net earnings from self-
employment are $400 or more, you
have to pay self-employment tax
and file Schedule SE.
While students may not earn
enough money from summer jobs
to owe income tax, they will proba-
bly have to pay Social Security and
Medicare taxes. Your employer
usually withholds these taxes from
your paycheck, but if you’re self-
employed, you may have to pay
self-employment taxes.
If you had more than one job
you should make sure all your
employers are withholding an ade-
quate amount of taxes to cover
your total income tax liability. You
can see if your withholding is cor-
rect using the Withholding Calcu-
lator on IRS.gov.
Whether you’re required to file
a return next year will depend on
the type and the amount of your
gross income, filing status, age,
and whether someone is eligible to
claim you as a dependent.
Visit IRS.gov, the official IRS
website, for more information
about income tax withholding and
employment taxes.
