A number of major issues were brought forth in the 2013 Legislative Session. Criminal justice reform was tackled in Senate Bill 70. Many non-violent offenders with alcohol and drug problems will be given sentences such as community monitoring, intensive treatment, and to be employed rather than being in prison. Some of the funding normally going to the Department of Corrections will need to be redirected to counties and municipalities to cover monitoring and jail costs. Senate Bill 235 developed the Building South Dakota program to attract large businesses and companies to South Dakota. A portion of the contractor's excise tax will be diverted to affordable housing, career technical education, and English Language Learning programs. Four legislators will be appointed to the Governor's Opportunity Economic Development board for oversight of the selected businesses. The Joint Appropriations Committee refused to add money to the state budget to cover an expansion of Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. An amendment to add $1.5 million of state spending to receive $59.8 million in federal funds to cover an additional 48,000 low-income people was turned down by the Committee. Governor Daugaard, however, plans to set up a group to study whether South Dakota should expand the Medicaid program to cover the additional low-income

people. The issue followed the most by the media in the 2013 Session was the school sentinel issue. Next school year, a school board can vote to allow that certain staff go through training to carry a gun in their schools. Any such decision by a school board can be referred to the voters. Some questions remain regarding a school district's liability and if sentinels can go onto the property of other school districts. I would encourage school boards to have discussions with their school lawyer, local law enforcement, teachers, and parents regarding their option to use sentinels. The General Funding Bill will give a three percent increase on the per student allocation and House Bill 1137 will appropriate an additional one percent of onetime dollars to education. There will also be limited grant money, $500,000 each, for innovative technology projects and for school server upgrades. Nursing homes and other facilities that rely heavily on Medicaid will receive the standard three percent and one percent one-time money increases. Community Service Providers as well will receive the same percentage increases. Strong arguments were presented for more money, but House Appropriations Chair Fred Romkema said lawmakers had to make tough votes to balance the budget. A little money, 1.7 million, was left to roll into the state's
e t o y o C
budget reserve which has grown to 135 million. The budget reserve safety net is 11.2 percent of our general fund revenues which reflects a conservative budget for the State of South Dakota. For the most part, tax payers were protected in the 2013 Session. However, Senate Bill 15 will raise the property levy for everyone by $15.20 per $100,000 of valuation to cover cost increases in special education funding. Special Education funding was pared back two years ago and now property taxes rather than state general revenue will be used for inflationary increases. The last day of the 2013 Session, also know as Veto Day, was officially Monday, March 25. Governor Daugaard vetoed SB 115 to increase the commercial fertilizer inspection fee for related research. The intentions of this fee increase is to help farmers be more effective and money wise, and at the same time help protect streams and lakes from nutrient runoff. I am in support of SB 115. I will serve on the Legislature's Executive Board during the time we are not in session. This committee selects summer study topics, follows the State Investment Council revenue, and evaluates the work of Legislative Research Council. I look forward to talking with many of you over the summer and next fall. Please keep in contact and let me know if there are issues I can work on for you.

Draper church gals served the Lenten "Soup and Soul" at the Murdo UMC Wednesday evening. There was a good turnout. Serving soup and sandwiches were: Rosa Lee Styles, Margie Styles, Janet Louder, and Karen and Sarah Dowling. It was very nice of some of the Murdo gals when the helped with the clean up.

Ray Freier spent three days last week in Gulfport, Miss., with son Doug. Doug is in the Navy Seabee's and is being deployed to Afghanistan.

Jesse Barker, recently stationed in Las Vegas with the Air Force, is in Pierre spending time with parents Sharon and Chuck Pietrus and grandparents Alex and Jean Freier. One day last week, Jesse, Chuck and Alex drove to Draper and met uncles Ray and Randy Freier. They spent some time at the farm and went out for lunch at a local cafe.

Enjoying their time here are: Taylor, Dillon and Jamie Brost and friend Nick Soper, all of Waunakee, Wis. They also spent time with Del, Christy, Kade and Hannah Brost. They returned home on Wednesday. Eldon and Esther Magnuson became great grandparents again in February with the arrival of Brooke Jordan to parents Dusty and Heather Pelle of Pierre. She joins two sisters, Rachel and Brilee and also proud grandma Terri Pelle of Philip. The Draper/Murdo UMC Sunday school classed combined to present a program Palm Sunday, first at the Murdo church and then again at Draper. There was a great turnout to watch them. It was so nice to have the church full again. The kids did a good job under the leadership of Kelcy Nash. There were several other helpers, but I'm not sure who, so I won't name names, but I commend them for lending a hand. Following church, several gathered at a local cafe for dinner. Among them were: Andy and Jill Rankin, Riley and Peyton; Joni and Mike Hunt; Richard and June Nix; David and Katie Hunt, Emma and Dawson; and Ashley Hunt. Peyton and Emma were in the program. Also following church, Don Volmer, Ray and Janice Pike, Lila Mae Christian, Ray and Shirley Vik, and Nelva and Janet Louder had dinner together at a local cafe. Happy birthday to Ray and Shirley as they both turn over another year on March 26. The community extends their sympathy to the family of long time Murdo resident Charlie Kell. Charlie, 91, passed away in Rapid City on March 21 at the home of his daughter, Licia. Joshua and Valerie Fredericksen, students at Watertown, spent the weekend with grandparents Katherine and Paul Patterson. They came to get away from the deep snow and cold – still cold but not as much snow as they have! Joshua celebrated his quarter century birthday with angel food cake made by grandma. Happy birthday, Joshua. Fred and Mary Mathews and Bruce and Anita Mathews attended the Buchanan spring concert held at the Riggs theater in Pierre last Thursday evening. Daughters/ granddaughters Marissa and Bailee were among the group performing. Grandma Mary reports it was very good. Helen Louder held a township meeting at her home on Friday.

On Friday morning at 5:30 a.m. a limo picked up the Henrichs and took them to the airport where

they boarded a plane and flew to Orlando, Fla., for a Make-A-Wish vacation for Blake. He was thrilled with the limo ride. They spent time at Disney World, Sea World, the ocean, plus many, many more adventures. I don't know about the kids but do know mom got sunburned! I guess she'll never learn! They flew back to Sioux Falls on March 21 and, again, the limo picked them up and then to the motel. They arrived home the next day filled with lots of good time memories. Blake was diagnosed with Menkes Syndrome (copper deficiency) when he was about one. He will turn six in June. Philip and Audrey Mathews headed east on March 15 to the home of daughter Cheryl and Bryon Rediger and family in Woodbury, Minn. They spent the night, and the next morning Cheryl took them to the airport and they flew to Ft. Meyers, Fla. They picked up a car and went to Marco Island and stayed a week. The weather was nice – didn't get over 80 degrees. There was a nice beach and beautiful country. They attended a farmers market, took lots of walks, spent lots of time at the beach, met lots of nice people, and did lots of sightseeing - a good time. They were back to Cheryl's on Saturday and back to cold country on Monday. Nelva and Janet Louder spent Saturday in Pierre. In the afternoon, they called on Alex and Jean Freier. Then they visited with Joyce Ernst and Ronald and Margaret Juhnke, all at Kelly's retirement home. Later, they met Gerald and Wanda Mathews at the Riggs theater and attended the East of Westreville concert featuring fiddler Kenny Putnam, "Americana Music, S.D. Style". A big crowd was on hand, and it was a fun evening. This was a Pierre/Ft. Pierre Kiwanis Club sponsored concert and a fundraiser to support scholarships and other youth activities in Pierre/Ft. Pierre. Also there enjoying the music were Fred and Mary Mathews. Governor Dennis Daugaard and former Governor Walter Dale Miller were recognized. Yes, I spelled Westreville right. There used to be a Westreville, S.D. This lost prairie town was on Frog Creek Road near Wakonda. "Just a little bit of history." Nelva and Janet Louder visited Dorothy and Brad Louder Sunday afternoon. A few cards were played and pumpkin pie and coffee were enjoyed. Got word that Grace Weber will be moving to Parkwood in Pierre Easter weekend. Sorry to see her leave, but know she will enjoy her new home. I hope everyone has a blessed and happy Easter!
The Casey Tibbs SD Rodeo Center hosts the celebration of the historic Fort Pierre train depot return
Half a century later, the historic Fort Pierre Train Depot is returning home. The depot was moved from Fort Pierre to the Shirley Miller Ranch after it was sold as surplus in the 1960’s. Rancher Shirley Miller gave the depot back to the community and has been coordinating efforts with the Verendrye Museum’s “Bring the Depot Home” committee over the last few years. The historic depot began its’ 165 mile journey from Mud Butte on March 14 and arrived in Fort Pierre five days later. A new foundation awaits it on Highway 83 and 4th Avenue in Fort Pierre. Originally constructed in 1907, to house passengers and supplies for steam engine trains, the depot served central South Dakota for more than 50 years. Train transportation was quickly replaced by cars, trucks and airplanes and many depots were abandoned or sold as surplus. Miller, who purchased the depot, had to cut off the roof ’s peak to fit it under power lines between Fort Pierre and his Mud Butte ranch. For the next 50 years the depot was utilized for sheep shearing and wool storage. Thanks to Miller’s attentiveness to the buildings’ maintenance, it has been well preserved. Insurance adjuster, Brian Scott was in the Mud Butte area and confirmed that the building on the Miller Ranch was indeed the old Fort Pierre depot. Discussions between the two men led to Miller’s agreement to donate the building to the Verendrye Museum for an artifact. Together with individual donations and a sizable

grant from The South Dakota Department of Transportation, the depot is home again. “We are excited to have this part of history brought back to the community,” said Casey Tibbs Rodeo Center Director Cindy Bahe. “Rancher Shirley Miller is to be commended for preserving the depot for and for making this historic event possible.” The Casey Tibbs SD Rodeo Center hosted a celebration of the depot and a tribute to Shirley Miller on Tuesday, March 26.

On a snowy, cold, March day, the Black Hills Gospel Quartet performed for approximately 40 people at the theatre on Main Street in Murdo. After performing together for more than twenty years, the four men, three of which are from the Sturgis area and the fourth from Piedmont, sing “in perfect harmony”. They present God's love, the gospel, and the joys of walking with Jesus every day. After the concert, refreshments of ice cream sundaes, cheese and crackers were enjoyed by attendees.

On March 18, Clarice Roghair and Jessie traveled to Sunshine Bible Academy where Jessie plans to finish out her sophomore year. Last weekend she was part of the Mega Teen Retreat, an annual event at SBA. She was pleased to spend time with Nicki Kell and LaShea Labrier from Jones County. She was also pleased to show Savy Roghair around the campus. Savy, daughter of Brice and Anne Roghair, lives near Isabel and plans to attend SBA. Jessie appreciates finding mail in her box. Her address is Jessie Harrison, 400 Sunshine Drive, Box 55, Miller, S.D. 57362. After Clarice left Jessie at Sunshine on Monday, she traveled on to Rock Rapids, Iowa, to visit at the home of her oldest daughter, Laurel Schriever and her family. Laurel, Clarice and granddaughter Susanna did preliminary sewing and cutting on a Haitian Missions project. On Thursday evening they joined approximately 20 other ladies and teenage girls at the Baptist Church where they assembled more than 115 tshirt dresses. One of the pastor’s daughters is a short-term missionary to Haiti, working in an orphanage. When her mother visits her next month, she will take the dresses along. The Okaton Church ladies group is also continuing to sew for children in Haiti. Our contact with orphanages there is Dianna Boni, who travels to the island every other month or so on business associated with the orphan-
ages. Donations of fabric, elastic and new or nearly-new t-shirts of all sizes are appreciated. Besides the many pillowcase dresses that have already been constructed and delivered, we are planning tshirt dresses, t-shirt shorts for both little boys and girls and cloth diapers, which are made from large or bigger t-shirts. The Okaton Modern Woodmen youth will be helping with these projects as well as supplying numerous diaper pins. Sympathy is extended to the family of Carol Maas Lepse, who died Sunday evening, March 14, 2013, at her home in Illinois. Carol, who moved to the Johnny Daum Ranch south of Okaton with her family when she was approximately 10 years old, is the daughter of Jerry and Linda Maas. She attended high school at Murdo and then moved to Illinois where she attended Moody Bible Institute. She married Steve Lepse and they spent the next 25+ years working with the Salvation Army, and doing social work. They are the parents of three children. Carol was diagnosed with stage III lymphoma last May and fought a strong battle in the months that followed. She died peacefully Sunday at home with her husband, children, and her mom, Linda, of Colorado Springs. Special guests at the Okaton Church on Sunday morning were Joe and Carol Giovanetto and children from near Chicago, Illinois.

The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Commission has approved significant changes to a popular deer hunting license for 2013. Hunters will only be able to possess either an East River or West River Special Buck License this year. Previously, a hunter could get both licenses. The commission has set the level of resident licenses for East River Special Buck and the resident and nonresident West River Special Buck licenses at four percent of the total licenses allocated the previous year, which includes an “any deer” tag or a minimum of 500 licenses for that specific season, whichever is greater.
Seizing the Hope Set Before Us by Pastor Rick Hazen ... Heb 6:18 United Methodist Church
Murdo and Draper Bible and read it, or pray, or volunteer to help in worship or with a church project, or go on that spiritual retreat we’ve always wanted to attend. Some of us “idolize” the secular over the “sacred” because the “secular” is easier to worship. We accept science over religion, even though science has never even found a cure for the “common cold.” In choosing the “secular” over the “sacred,” we might grow a little. But this life is so short, so transient, so temporary. Let’s ask ourselves — How are we growing for the life that we will spend in eternity? What we do here on earth and how we spend our time here will determine how we will spend it in heaven. There’s good news according to St. Paul. If we are open to God, we can repent of our old ways and become a new person in Christ Jesus. What does it mean to “repent?” Some think it’s like “remorse.” There’s a difference. “Remorse” is like the drunk who comes home from the bar, beats his wife and kids, cries about it and asks for their forgiveness, but goes back to his same old habits with his drinking buddies the next day. There’s no change in his life. To “repent” means to change your life totally — to let go and give God your old ways and change and become a new person for Jesus Christ. The “old ways” must pass away, and “new ways” must take their place. Pray about it. “God, I thank you for Lent and Easter and for reminding us that you never give up on us. Thank you for your Son Jesus Christ who died and rose for our sakes. Help me, Lord, to stop spinning my wheels in the secular, and instead, learn to accept what is as plain as the nose on my face, the sacred. I know that with the sacred all my life’s questions will truly be answered. We know that the time is growing short and Jesus Christ will return soon. Help us to strive to be more like your Son Jesus Christ in whose name we pray. Amen.
“For the love of Christ urges us on, because we are convinced that one has died for all; therefore all have died. And he died for all, so that those who live might live no longer for themselves, but for him who died and was raised for them…. So if anyone is in Christ, there is a new creation: everything old has passed away; see everything has become new!” (2 Corinthians 5:14-15, 17) How much have we given up for Lent this year? I mean really sacrificed, so that we know we have seriously made a sacrifice for the sake of Jesus Christ. Sometimes what we give up for Lent makes about as much sense as the “New Year’s Resolutions” we never can keep. We start out with “good intentions,” but know that the road to Hell is paved with “good intentions.” We fail to “follow through” and soon we are back to our old habits, our old ways of doing things, not making a change for the better at all. We seem to stay “status quo” and have convinced ourselves that, “God’s in His heaven, and everything’s okay in our lives.” We would much rather accept the old adage that “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it,” rather than “I’m broken God, how can I be open to you because I need some serious fixing in my life.” We drink too much, eat too much, gamble too much, watch too much TV, spend too much time texting or being on the computer than we need too. Rather than talking of ways to be the hands of Christ helping a neighbor in need over a cup of coffee, we would much rather gossip about them. We fail to visit or call a family member or friend who is in a nursing home or hospital. When they die we regret we didn’t do something, until we rationalize our way out of it by saying “I guess I was just too busy.” We hope by rationalizing that we will soon feel better about ourselves. Some of us may never change. Some of us may never lift a finger to pick up a
Charles Dornton Kell (C.D. Kell) died peacefully in his sleep at the home of his daughter, Licia Penticoff, on March 21, 2013. He was born on February 14, 1922 in White River, S.D., to Cecil E. and Alva M. Kell, and attended school at White River, S.D., and then the University of South Dakota at Vermillion. He went into the Army in September of 1942 as a private, serving in North Africa and Italy, returning as a 1st Lieutenant in 1947. While in Italy, he was married to Nives Masini on October 6, 1946 at Gorizia, Italy, and to
this union was born two daughters and a son. He returned to the University of South Dakota in 1947, receiving an LLB degree in August of 1949, and went into the practice of law at Murdo, S.D., on September 1, 1949, where he continued to practice until his retirement in 1995. He was States Attorney of Jones County, S.D., for over 40 years and during that time served on the Supreme Court of South Dakota. He was a very involved community leader and organizer. Throughout his life, he was president of the Jones County Abstract Company, Inc., clerk of the draft board and later a member of the draft board during the Korean War, was one of the first people to start the Lions Club in Murdo and was a charter member until he retired, was a member of both the VFW and Legion, and for 30 of the 40 years gave his service as the city attorney of Murdo.

Applause by Pastor Paul M. Sadler
Scripture Reading: “And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by Him.” – Colossians 3:17 There seems to be a growing trend in Christendom for congregations to physically applaud those who are ministering in the things of the Lord. Pastors are applauded when they wax eloquent or say something humorous. Also, after soloists lift the hearts of the saints into the heavenlies they are often met with a round of applause as they step down from the platform. Having pastored a number of local assemblies, I’ve risen from my chair, on more than one occasion to interrupt the hand clapping of the saints. While I am sure their applause was well-intentioned, it is nonetheless very irreverent and disrespectful to the Lord. When the world gives a standing ovation after a performance of an actor or comedian they are expressing their appreciation for having been acceptably entertained. They are also praising the performer for his excellence in an art which has been cultivated through years of hard work. When the servant of the Lord comes to the platform, to minister on our behalf, the purpose of his labor of love is not to entertain the congregation. It is to be viewed rather as a ministry, which is an integral part of our worship of the Holy One of Heaven. Anyone who serves the Lord, sincerely, would never want the applause of men, but would insist that all the honor and glory be given to God. May all our adoration go to the One Who is worthy to be worshipped, for He has given us his Word and the opportunity along with the gifts to minister on His behalf. Amen! CHRYSOSTOM ON APPLAUSE 345-407 A.D. “… some clapped their hands in applause, according to the custom of the times. Then Chrysostom raised his voice: ‘How does your applause help me?’ It will be the right approval if you practice in life what I say to you. The church is no theater, where men listen for their own pleasure.” (From the Life of Chrysostom, by Frederic Perthes, P. 18).

Business studies, playing sports figures into Mathews' future at Northern State University
By Paige Venard Philip Robert Mathews, son of Scott Mathews and Tamara Mathews and older brother to Madison Mathews, said that if he could be anything he wanted, he would be a professional surfer in the Bahamas. But, from growing up in a rural area, he set his sights on playing sports and working on his family farm. Throughout Mathews’ high school career he has participated in four years basketball, football and student council, two years of golf and track, choir, and one year of Jazz Choir. Mathews’ enjoyed being successful with sports throughout high school the most; he will miss sports the most after he graduates. Before he graduates, he wants to accomplish having a relaxing and successful season of golf. His most fond memories of high school include: homecomings, social gatherings, sports and hanging out with the friends he has made. Mathews’ favorite color is blue, his favorite food is pizza rolls, favorite school subject is English and favorite sport football. Horrible Bosses ranks as his favorite movie while That 70’s Show takes top TV show honors. You will find Mathews wearing Buckle or Levi’s, playing Call of Duty, golfing or watching television. Considering the question of which is least important, money, power or fame, he answered with “Fame, because people do not need to know who I am. I like it better that way, but with the media today, you can’t have money, power or fame without people knowing.” He admires his dad the most because he was always there for him and he sees him as a good role model. If he could meet any famous person he would meet the President of the United States because he wants to know how hard it is to be the president. Mathews chose accomplishing something over being popular and being organized because he said, “Life is all about accomplishing things, and my biggest fear is dying without accomplishing something significant.” Mathews values friends and family the most, and the biggest lesson he has learned from his dad is to never quit. He will be taking what he has learned the past 18 years with him to Northern State University, where he will be studying Business Management and playing football on academic and athletic scholarships.

Middle School students take on academic challenge in White River
For the first time, six students from the Jones County Middle School competed in the 3rd Annual White River Acalympic Competition along with nine other area schools on March 20. The event was held at the White River High School gym. Representing our school were two 8th graders - Haley Booth and Troi Valburg, two 7th graders – Zach Boyle and Savannah Krogman and two 6th graders – Kade Brost and Morgan Feddersen. The teams went through two rounds of questions, earning points as they went along. During the second round, incorrect answers meant a deduction of points. Each team entered its answers using a texting device. Categories for the questions were social studies, math, science, language arts, current events, music and health. The Jones County team tied for 7th place.
Sixth grade science experiments with dry ice
By Paige Venard Del and Kade Brost donated a cooler full of dry ice for Katie Venard’s sixth grade science class experiments. The students were learning about the phases of solid, liquid, and gases with sublimation. The students geared up with safety goggles and gloves to protect themselves from getting frost bite. The class used dry ice, dawn dish soap and warm water combined to make a bubbly mixture showing the sublimation from the dry ice. Robert Manecke said, “The
dry ice and dish soap mixture looked like a huge brain.” The class combined dry ice and apple juice to make a carbonated cider, which they got to sample later during class. Some students took a spoon and a piece of dry ice to make singing spoons. They also put a small piece of dry ice in a 35 mm film canister to watch the pressure of the gases released from the dry ice burst the lid off. Peige Springer said, “I enjoyed the experiment because I enjoy hands on activities, and it was awesome to actually see what the dry ice did.”
By Nicki Kell Busy, busy, busy! The jazz choir practiced for the USD Jazz Festival for weeks and did not have a full crew because they attended during spring break. The songs included: “No One Knows Who I Am” arranged by Audrey Snyder, “ Jazz Talkin’ ” by Russell Robinson, and “Your Cheatin’ Heart” arranged by Kirby Shaw. The students ventured off to Vermillion on March 14 and came back the next day with a second place trophy. Overall, everyone

was really surprised that the group had done that well. Becky and Travis sang impromptu solos in “Your Cheatin’ Heart” and Carole Benda, Becky, and Travis had written solos in “Jazz Talkin’.” Becky Bryan and Travis Grablander were honored as outstanding soloists. Becky said, “It shocked me, but I really enjoy singing in front of people.” After performing, they stopped at the Empire Mall in Sioux Falls for some shopping and then headed to Mitchell to swim and go down the waterslide at the hotel. Janna Glaze recalled one of the funniest things that happened: “Nicki, Allison, and I were swimming with the lifeguard and Trudy was buying a remote control helicopter.” The jazz choir also got to watch other choirs from around South Dakota including swing choirs where they not only sing, but dance as well. Rose Comp said, “It was a lot of fun, the kids were great, and they sang very well.” By Nicki Kell Off on another adventure on Tuesday, March 12, the junior high students took a trip to Presho for the 39th Annual Lyman-Jones County Middle School Choral Festival. Their guest conductor was Susan Porter who has taught music at the Platte-Geddes school system. Haley Booth said, “She was fun and energetic.” Some of the songs they sang were “Sing Jubilate Deo” by Jerry Estes, “A Patriotic Festival” arranged by Mark Williams, “Inscription of Hope” by Randall Stroope, “A Whole Lot of Love to Share” by Greg Gilpin, “Two Too Wet!” arranged by Jay Althouse, and “Didn’t My Lord Deliver Daniel” arranged by Roger Emerson. Many of the boys liked the song “Two Too Wet.” Jake Lolley said, “It was just fun.” It was the first time participating in this festival for the sixth graders, and Sloan Benedict said, “I think it’s kind of ironic how we practiced for like five or six hours and the concert was only about fifteen minutes.”

During a lull… Jacob Lolley, Zach Hespe and Trey Flynn do
a little conversing. Many of the students learned something new that can help them improve their singing abilities. Preston Gyles remembered, “If you stick your fingers in your mouth, you can open your mouth wider.” Besides singing all day, they also enjoyed having snacks and hanging out with friends from other schools. Other schools that attended were Kadoka, Lyman, Philip, Stanley County, Wall and White River. All in all, the day went well and the kids really enjoyed it.

Two busloads make trip to Pierre for Think and Drive Stay Alive
By Ryan Kirscher On March 19, 2013, grades 9-12 went to Pierre to watch the Think & Drive Stay Alive program hosted at the T.F Riggs Theater. From the immediate area, eight schools attended: Onida, Crow Creek, Stanley, Pierre, Kadoka, Jones and Highmore. The program was also broadcast on the radio by the Dakota Radio Group. Jeri Thomas, Dakota Radio Group News Director did the Introduction of the program. TF Riggs Theatre has hosted the approximately 9,000 students that attend since its beginning 11 years ago. The first speaker, South Dakota Attorney General Marty Jackley, talked about Synthetic Drugs and how they have been a problem in South Dakota. The next presentation by the Central South Dakota Teen Court Volunteers featured Peter Maningas, MD, who shared his insights from his experiences as a physician. Maningas is a physician at St. Mary’s Hospital, a member of the Pierre Police Department Reserves and a member of the SWAT team. He talked about filling a void in your life with God and why drinking and driving is bad. Zach Sang & the Gang made a presentation convincing people not to drink and drive and not to take drugs. Justin Iburg made the final presentation. His life, along with three other people’s lives, took a big turn when Iburg was driving
down the road and got a text message. He looked down to read it, heard a crash and then a louder crash and looked up to see that he had collided with another vehicle and that vehicle collided with another and the last vehicle collided with a motorcycle that had Jon Christenson on it. Iburg along with the other two people driving cars had no injuries while Jon Christenson’s life was taken from him. Iburg got a call to turn himself in. He received the punishment of 200 days probation, 100 days not driving, and to give 25 presentations. Iburg has now given his 48th presentation. After his presentation students headed home for lunch at school and afternoon classes.
By Nicki Kell National Honors Society members sponsored a blood drive at the ambulance shed March 20 so that high school students and community members could donate blood to help others in need. Advisor Katie Venard received the information pertaining to the blood drive only two days prior to the event, so NHS members spent part of their study halls making phone calls to schedule times when people were able to donate. In spite of the short notice and busy work schedules, the United Blood Service received twentynine pints of blood. “I wasn’t able to donate blood, but I learned a lot about donating and I will hopefully be able to donate next time,” said senior Janna Glaze. Members donated cookies and drinks to refuel the donors. Although most people somewhat cringe at the idea of

S.D. artist taps Native heritage in abstract
by Jill Calliso, Argus Leader Since Renelle White Buffalo now lives in Los Angeles, our interview had to take place via Skype. Yet even the coldness of two sheets of computer glass between us — and the fact that her iPad image portrayed her head horizontally — couldn’t dim her vibrancy. That passion, readily apparent in her artwork, has been part of her always. “She is, I would say, a very complex person in some ways, and she articulates this very well in her work,” says John LeBoeuf, White Buffalo’s art teacher at White River High School. White Buffalo has begun gaining national attention for her art, which she describes as “Native American inspired, a little abstract, contemporary.” This week she will compete with other artists in Los Angeles in a contest that could take her submission to Miami. It all began with paper dolls, White Buffalo says, and the fact that the grandparents who raised her could afford to buy them only infrequently from the grocery store where they shopped. “I would make my own and design the clothes or make them look like me and all my favorite people,” White Buffalo says. “That’s when I think the creativeness kind of exploded from there. Ever since I was a little girl, I wanted to be an artist, and everyone knew.” Life threw up several roadblocks, but nothing White Buffalo couldn’t surmount. Her grandmother, Philomene White Buffalo, died when she was in eighth grade, and her grandfather, Dean Hix, died when she was a high school junior. “I was pretty much on my own then,” says White Buffalo, who frequently stayed with friends’ families. She spent her summers participating in the Outward Bound program in Vermillion. Charlie Luecke met her then. “She was a very good participant, taking the right kind of classes,” said Luecke, Outward Bound’s former director. “She understood she had to excel. She did such a nice job that after she went off to college. she worked as a summer mentor for us. She’s hardworking and a person of integrity. That’s the thing I love about Renelle. She’s very honest with others and with herself.” White Buffalo attended Northern State University for three semesters, focusing on graphic and ad design. A professor, Matt Kargol, convinced her to pursue art professionally, so she transferred to Iowa State University in Ames. After graduation, she moved to the West Coat. She recently reduced her work load from two jobs to one so she would have more time for art. At the same time, she has taken on a new project: volunteering with homeless kids in a program called School on Wheels. “It’s low-income, first-generation students trying to prepare for college,” White Buffalo says. “I have that background, and I’m trying to use that.” White Buffalo also uses her background an enrolled member of the Rosebud Sioux Tribe in her art. The multimedia paintings often feature Native American elements such as the buffalo, head dresses and spiders in contemporary and abstract style. Painting buffalo was her first series, and White Buffalo hesitated before she began painting head dresses. She doesn’t want her work to be stereotypical, so the head dresses only will be shown in a “super abstract” form. Dream catchers never will be something she paints, she says. Head dresses have shown up recently in fashion shows and on magazine covers, to the dismay of many Native Americans. White Buffalo refuses to let that anger her. “Their making a mistake gives us an opportunity as American Indians and people who know the culture to get the word out for the world to hear and see,” she says. “I always put things in a more optimistic light and try to pull the best out of a bad situation. I don’t like it’s such a trend or a fashion thing, but their intentions aren’t to be mean. I just don’t think they’re educated enough.” LeBouef, who has taught at White River for 22 years, says not enough due is given to Native American modernism such as the art White Buffalo produces. “Native American art is relegat-

ed to the artifact of a culture rather than just the voice of a people,” he says. “Renelle has a true voice. It has a great tone, and it’s expressive. It’s just wonderful, wonderful work.” LeBoeuf thinks White Buffalo wants to be considered an artist, rather than a “Native artist,” and she agrees. At the same time, she is proud of her background. “I really do want to portray my culture and South Dakota in a positive way here in Los Angeles because I will never forget where I come from,” she says. Success comes in more than financial rewards, Luecke says, and 25-year-old White Buffalo understands that. At the same time, she is both delighted and fearful about participating in the upcoming Curates show and aware of how a financial success could help. “The past winner, he sells his work. I think I saw a piece got $20,000,” White Buffalo says. “That covers so much rent from one painting.”
Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced Friday that he will appoint Bob Sutton of Pierre to the South Dakota Board of Regents. “Bob has a keen intellect and an incredible amount of experience in the private and nonprofit sectors, having served at the upper levels of several statewide organizations over the past two decades,” the Governor said. “He also shares my deep conviction that higher education helps drive economic development and social progress in South Dakota, and I’m pleased that he has agreed to serve on the Board of Regents.” Sutton has a bachelor’s degree in political science and a master's in public administration, both from the University of South Dakota.

Technical institutes boast high job placement rates
South Dakota’s four technical institutes boasted high job-placement rates again this year, with a combined graduate placement rate of 97 percent. The placement report for the 2011-12 school year was presented to the South Dakota Board of Education during a meeting earlier today. Of the 2,093 graduates responding, 97 percent reported either being employed, continuing their education or entering the military. The survey response rate was 91 percent, and 89 percent of all those responding said they were not only employed, they were also employed in a training-related career field. “The really exciting thing about these numbers is they’ve been good for several years now – and still they just keep getting better,” said Deb Shephard, president of Lake Area Technical Institute in Watertown, which was just named one of the top two-year colleges in the country by the Aspen Institute. The report tracks several key

factors, including location, job status, and entry wage through a survey mailed to graduates. The numbers, including response rate and entry wage, have traditionally been very strong, despite a national economy struggling to rebound after recession. At its meeting today, the board also approved a new program and a program expansion for Western Dakota Technical Institute in Rapid City. Western Dakota will be beginning a Precision Machining program in fall 2013, and WDT’s Practical Nursing program is being upgraded to an Associate’s of Applied Sciences degree. “These programs align with the state’s goals of filling rural health care jobs and growing the manufacturing sector in South Dakota,” said WDT President Mark Wilson. “In addition, they also make sense in terms of the development we’re seeing in our region right now.” The board also approved a $7 per-credit increase in tuition and fees for the upcoming year.

The old adage, “Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail” can become stark reality when faced with challenges like drought. Presenters for the currently running webinar series, “Managing Drought Risk on the Ranch” are highlighting the importance of and encouraging producers to develop a plan to follow over the next few weeks, months and beyond to help take the emotion out of decisions they may need to make. Crop producers would be wise to do so as well. With the unusually dry conditions much of the winter wheat across South Dakota was planted into last fall, there is considerable concern about the viability of the crop. Although some regions of the state have received precipitation, many areas remain quite dry. Producers may need to adjust their cropping plans, depending on how the spring progresses in terms of weather and precipitation. While meeting with a producer recently, it became apparent that he had plans in place. While he devoutly follows no-till farming practices, a field fire forced him to use emergency tillage to stop wind erosion that was occurring on some of his fields. He traveled at a right-angle to the prevailing wind, using a tillage tool with widespaced shanks, and skipping two widths of the implement between passes. His logic was that if dry conditions persist he could come back a second, and if necessary, a third time, in the untouched ground to hopefully bring up clods of soil to stop the erosion. His cropping plans are also based on a “what if” scenario. If adequate precipitation is received by the acceptable date to plant spring wheat, the seed will go in. If not, the ground will lay idle until conditions are favorable for anothHaving a Cropping Plan er crop that the timing for planting is right. If all else fails, he plans to plant cover crops to take advantage of whatever moisture arrives to grow some residue and get the land into condition for the future. Managers of a cattle operation recently requested help in designing an irrigation system to better ensure their ability to raise forages. Not everyone has the soils or the water resources to do so, but they are planning ahead rather than waiting and hoping. A major concern with livestock producers across much of the state is the ability to raise enough forage to meet their needs. One potential source is winter wheat fields that may have less than adequate stands for optimal grain yields. Wheat can produce relatively high quality forage, and it may be beneficial to plant additional materials into poor stands to beef up yields instead of destroying the crop and starting over. Whether you are making plans for various crops as grain or forage, the following resources may be helpful in determining how late they can be planted, seeding rates and intended use: ExEx8120, “Emergency Late-seeding Options”: http://pubstorage.sd state.edu/AgBio_Publications/ articles/ExEx8120.pdf, ExEx8142, “Producing Annual and Alternative Crops for Forage”: http://pubstorage.sdstate.edu/AgBio_Publications/articles/ExEx8142.pdf, and ExEx8152, “Utilizing Annual Crops for Forage in Western South Dakota”: http://pubstorage.sd state.edu/AgBio_Publications/articles/ExEx8152.pdf.
The Clinical View
Statin drugs are the family of cholesterol-lowering drugs including Mevacor (lovastatin), Zocor (simvastatin), Pravachol (pravastatin), Lipitor (atorvastatin), Lescol (fluvastatin), Livalo (pitavastatin), andCrestor (rosuvastatin). The Merck Pharmaceutical Company was the first one to market one of these drugs as Mevacor in 1987. There is now 25 years experience with these drugs. Since then, the entire statin family of drugs has been shown to be the most potent and effective treatment for high blood cholesterol. Initially, the statin family of drugs was seen to lower the bad cholesterol in the person’s blood. After extensive studies extending into the 21st century, it is clearly shown that the statin family of drugs has a dramatic effect on prevention of heart attack and stroke. They are highly recommended for ALTERNATE DAY DOSING WITH STATIN DRUGS anyone who has already had a cardiovascular event or already has diabetes. And yet, there has been no shortage of detractors for the statin family of drugs. At least 11 percent of the general population reports some degree of musculoskeletal pain with the use of statins. The effect seems to be dose related and it didn’t take long for patients to figure out that cutting back the dose of statin drugs they were taking seemed to make their muscle aches less. So some patients cut the pills in half and other patients took them every other day. A few patients took a half of a pill every other day. They reported back that the muscle side effect problem seemed to get better. The cost saving for alternate day use of statin drugs speaks for itself. One of the most popular statin drugs called Lipitor is $149.90 per month for brand namedrug. The generic of this drug is now $104.99, really not an

Nutrition labels can be confusing for anyone, even the most health conscious individual, explains Megan Sexton, SDSU Extension Nutrition Field Specialist. "The nutrition label that is found on all food items is regulated by the Food and Drug Administration to ensure all information about a food product is disclosed," Sexton said. "Even though these labels are rich with information it does take some education before you are comfortable enough to navigate them." When reviewing a nutrition label, these are the items Sexton says an individual needs to pay attention to. Serving Size Often products have multiple servings in one package, for example a large sports drink (32 oz.) contains four, 8 ounce servings. "This means that drinking the entire bottle would quadruple the numbers on the nutrition label. It is important to notice the serving sizes and how much you are consuming at one time. We often consume excess calories because our portion sizes are too large," she said. Calories All foods contribute calories that we use for energy and our bodies need a certain level of calories to function. Sexton says by tracking how many total calories

are consumed in a day people can better control their weight loss, maintenance or gain. Main Nutrients The first is total fat and the subcategories of saturated fat and trans fat - there can also be subcategories for monounsaturated fat and polyunsaturated fat. "It is most important to consume foods that contain lower saturated fat and little to no transfat. Research shows that monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fats have health protecting qualities, while excess saturated and trans fats can be harmful to the cardiovascular system," Sexton said. Cholesterol Sexton encourages individuals to consume less that 300mg of cholesterol a day. Cholesterol is found in animal products. Sodium Processed foods contain more sodium than fresh foods, and remember to account for any salt that you add in cooking or at the table. Sexton says we should consume 1,500 mg or less per day. Total Carbohydrates This section of the "Main Nutrients" food label is broken down into two subcategories, one of which is dietary fiber, which Sexton says we should slowly increase our intake to 25 - 38grams every day. "We should limit the number of
inspiring-type saving. An inspiring type saving would come with Zocor which brand name sells for $193.00 a month as opposed to $4.00 a month for the generic. The obvious question is whether or not lower doses of the statin drugs are still effective in preventing strokes and heart attacks and lowering LDL cholesterol. The answer appears to be “yes”. There are now 5 separate studies that were mentioned in an article in the American Journal of Medicine for February 2013. These 5 studies all showed quite comparable lowering of the LDL cholesterol with alternate day treatment as opposed to daily treatment with the same pill. Note, this cuts the cost of the medication in half and has a significant decrease in the likelihood of the person developing musculoskeletal pain. So what is a person to do? Heart attacks and strokes are very unforgiving when they finally occur. For those who survive same,

sugars we consume because excess sugar is linked with diabetes, weight gain and heart disease," Sexton said. Protein "Protein is important for feeling full and is important to most body regulations," she said. "The amount of protein to consume varies from person-to-person, but looks to consume some protein at each meal or snack." Percent of Daily Value This percentage is provided for all of the sections discussed about to help the consumer gage how this food fits into their daily goals. This percentage is based on a 2,000 calorie diet. Vitamins and Minerals This section includes all vitamins and minerals found in the food item and are expressed in the percent of the average person's daily need. The Recommended Daily Values This is based on 2,000 and 2,500 calories. The last part of the nutrition label is a breakdown of what the average person should be consuming in a day. The first row is for a 2,000 calorie diet and the second row is a 2,500 calorie diet. Sexton reminds readers that these are just generic estimates, for a more thorough and effective measurement of your needs speak with a dietitian or doctor. For more information, visit iGrow.org.
preventing the second one takes on a new importance. The preventive effect of a statin drug does seem to be related to how well it lowers the bad cholesterol (LDL). Current recommendations are that a person’s LDL cholesterol should be less than a 100 mg percent if they are otherwise healthy. The LDL cholesterol should be less than 70 mg percent for those who are diabetic or have already had a heart attack. Within these limits, which drug is used to achieve same has never been shown to favor one drug over another. By the same token, if these 2 recommendations can be achieved with alternative day use of the statin drugs, it would be my recommendation that this would certainly be an acceptable step for a person to take in their care. This would both save money and decrease side effects while still having the same beneficial effect in heart attack and stroke prevention. When testing the effectiveness of a statin therapy, it must be known that the dose of medication reaches a steady state certainly within a week. Yet the effectiveness on lowering the total cholesterol takes as much as 4 to 8 weeks. It would be recommended that a person who is going to drop their dose of a statin drug to every other day, recheck their cholesterol six weeks after the change in medication schedule has been made and then make a decision on whether or not getting the bad cholesterol below a 100 milligram percent is achieved by the new recommendation or under 70 milligram percent for those who have already had a heart attack.

Harvest of the Month Program and School Garden Training Begins in July
SDSU Extension, the South Dakota Discovery Center and Team Nutrition will be hosting two-day trainings on how to implement Harvest of the Month and School & Youth Gardens programs. The trainings will be held in July 2013 at the SDSU Extension Regional Centers in Sioux Falls and Rapid City. Harvest of the Month is an adaptable, easy to use program that gets kids excited about eating fruits and vegetables and has them asking for more. Through a short presentation and produce sampling, children learn about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables every day. The fun and quick presentation explains the history, peak seasons, vitamins and minerals and how to choose the produce. Supplementary materials are adapted for preschool and after school programs as well as promotions for grocery store produce departments. School & Youth Gardens will provide information for teachers and others who are interested in establishing a school or youth garden. Garden-based learning provides a great opportunity to enhance science and mathematics as well as many other subject areas. It provides a platform for nutrition education and encourages increased fruit and vegetable consumption. Training Details The Harvest of the Month training on day one begins at 9 a.m. and runs until 4 p.m.; it is taught by Danette Jarzab, Community Wellness Coordinator, from the S.D. Discovery Center. Jarzab will teach attendees about the resources and how to present the Harvest of the Month program to preschool through upper elementary youth. These are short presentations that include produce sampling to teach children about the importance of eating fruits and vegetables every day. Related topics presented by SDSU Extension staff include food safety tips and how to cook with kids. This training will teach attendees how to put together fun and quick presentations to different youth ages. Implementation can be done in individual classrooms, health classes, PE classes, as an assembly for the school, or any out of school program. Check out www.sdharvestofthemonth.org for more information, all current materials, plus new materials for PreK and OST to be posted in May. School & Youth Gardens, organized by SDSU Extension begins at 9 a.m. on day two and concludes at 4 p.m. Discussions will include connecting educational gardens with utilizing fresh garden produce for the classroom, age-appropriate gardening activities, organic gardening, butterfly gardening, and core subjects for the classroom. Attendees will have the opportunity to tour an existing school or youth garden program in the community.

USDA PARES FARM PAYMENTS BY $152 MILLION DUE TO BUDGET SEQUESTER The U.S. Government will trim payments to 350,000 farmers by about $152 million to comply with automatic spending cuts that took effect at the start of this month, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said on Tuesday. Vilsack said the money would come out of the $5 billion-a-year direct-payment subsidy, which is paid in the fall, to offset reductions due in three USDA programs that have already disbursed money to farmers.

Chocolate and coffee are both good for you. That’s what the experts currently tell us although they may change their minds tomorrow. For the time being, though, we can cheerfully guzzle coffee and munch on chocolate, secure in the knowledge that they’re good for us, sort of like apples. This is excellent news since I like both of these things quite a lot, and apples are okay too. Both coffee and chocolate have multiple benefits, and some of those are linked to their containing antioxidants. Antioxidants, in case you aren’t familiar with them, are known to prevent tissue damage that is caused by molecules called oxygen-free radicals. That explanation does nothing at all for me since I haven’t a clue what they are really talking about. But, since antioxidants are obviously good for you, I’ll be glad to ingest them frequently in my favorite beverage and snack. The health claims for chocolate, I might add, are substantial. It reduces the risk of stroke, lowers blood pressure and cholesterol, lowers risk of heart disease, makes you feel full so you eat less, reduces risk of diabetes, reduces stress, increases blood flow which makes you smarter and more alert and even gives vision a boost through more blood flow to the retina. It quiets coughs as well which I discovered for myself last winter when I had some bug that gave me a nasty hack. I dislike cough drops so I decided to try a piece of dark chocolate. It actually helped. I reasoned that chocolate tends to coat the mouth and throat and might help in that way, but those in the know say it’s because it contains theobromine which reduces activity of the vagus nerve. That nerve is the part of the brain that triggers hard-to-shake coughs. No matter how it works, it works. It also helps calm slight jitters in my arms or legs when I’m trying to get to sleep. No one has said why that might be, but maybe it has to do with increased blood flow. Coffee doesn’t seem to have quite such an extensive list of benefits, but there are many. It reduces the risk of diabetes and heart-rhythm disturbances. Even decaffeinated coffee does that. It lowers the risk of stroke, Parkinson’s disease, and cancer (especially liver cancer,) and has a major proven benefit of making you sixty-five percent less likely to develop dementia and Alzheimer’s disease. Bring on the coffee. On the negative side, it can increase the risk of miscarriage which obviously is not of major concern to me, and it can make heartburn worse. It doesn’t seem to bother my digestion, and neither does it keep me awake. I often set down my coffee cup, fall into bed, and go right to sleep. All of us, of course, are looking for ways to make our lives better. When we hear that something we’re doing is actually good for us, we embrace it heartily. That’s probably why I spend a lot of time trying to be a better Christian. Chocolate and coffee may have some benefits, but being close to God has many more. It certainly reduces stress since God promises to guide and protect us. I figure I would be a basket case by now if I couldn’t rely on him. He has helped and protected me times without number. Then too, we are naturally drawn to those who like us or, better yet, love us. That’s what we’re celebrating at this time of year when Easter reminds us of God’s great love that led him to send his son to die for us. That’s extreme love. We can never hope to repay him for this sacrifice, but we can at least be thankful. We can also respond by trying to let God accomplish in us and through us what is pleasing and useful to him. He even wants us to constantly stay in touch with him, and we can certainly do that with a little effort. So, during this Easter week, there will no doubt be plenty of chocolate to enjoy and probably coffee too, but most of all we can rejoice in being children of the King. As such we can look forward to the brightest of futures, both here on earth and evermore with our Lord in heaven. Easter blessings on us all.

The DCP/ACRE Appendix does have the following language that everyone needs to be aware of: Payments are subject to the availability of funds, compliance with all applicable laws and statutory changes and to limits on payments as may be provided for in the program regulations. It is specifically understood that any payments under this Appendix and the programs to which it applies are subject to statutory and regulatory changes including those that occur after the signing of the contract. Payments under the DCP and ACRE programs may be reduced by a certain percentage due to a sequester order required by Congress and issued pursuant to the Balanced Budget and Emergency Deficit Control Act of 1985. Should a payment reduction be required, FSA will provide notice about the required percent of payment reduction that applies to direct, countercyclical and ACRE payments. USDA ANNOUNCES 45TH GENERAL SIGN-UP FOR THE CONSERVATION RESERVE PROGRAM The U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) will conduct a fourweek general sign-up for the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP), beginning May 20 and ending on June 14. DATES TO REMEMBER/ DEADLINES: May 20-June 14: CRP general signup June 3: 2013 ACRE sign-up ends July 15: 2012 ACRE Production July 15: 2012 NAP Production July 15: Final 2013 Acreage reporting date August 2: DCP sign-up ends
During a speech to trade group officials, Vilsack said comparatively small amounts are due for each farmer, so it would be more efficient to pro-rate the direct-payment subsidy than to ask the farmers for a refund on checks already cut. Affected are the milk income loss contract subsidy to dairy farmers, the supplemental revenue assistance program (SURE) and the noninsured assistance program (NAP). SURE and NAP are insurance-like programs that cover losses due to bad weather. 2013 FARM PROGRAM SIGNUP AND APPENDIX DCP and ACRE signup for the 2013 crop year started on February 19, 2013. The DCP sign-up period will end on August 2, 2013 and the ACRE sign-up period will end on June 3, 2013. The 2013 DCP and ACRE program provisions are unchanged from 2012, except that all eligible participants may choose to enroll in either DCP or ACRE for the 2013 crop year. This means that eligible producers who were enrolled in ACRE in 2012 may elect to enroll in DCP in 2013 or may re-enroll in ACRE in 2013 (and vice versa). Stop by or call the office for an appointment. Advanced payments are not authorized.
Rural attorney recruitment bill signed by Governor Daugaard
Governor Dennis Daugaard signed HB 1096 into law today thereby making South Dakota the first state in the nation to have legislation designed specifically to assist the recruitment of attorneys into rural areas. Currently, sixty-five percent of South Dakota’s attorneys are located in four counties: Minnehaha, Pennington, Hughes and Brown. HB 1096 was designed to assist counties in the recruitment of attorneys to their areas by providing incentive payments over a five year period. Over the last several years, Chief Justice David Gilbertson has spoken repeatedly on the need for such services in the rural areas. In response to the bill signing, the Chief Justice stated: “Today the State of South Dakota takes a giant step forward to reverse fifty years of decline in the ability of our citizens in rural areas to have reasonable access to legal services in their home area. I am hopeful that my prior observation that we were becoming a state with islands of justice provided in the larger cities while the rural areas become a sea of justice denied, will, because of this bill be reversed. This bill will hopefully help pro-

vide not only the citizens with access to an attorney, but will work toward ensuring that our local rural county governments, school boards, cities and towns have access to legal services in those underserved areas as well.” HB 1096 creates a four-year pilot program for counties with a population or 10,000 or less that are determined eligible by the Unified Judicial System. Participating counties are required to pay thirty-five percent of an incentive payment, the State Bar Association contributes fifteen percent and the State of South Dakota will pay the remaining amounts. Any participating attorney will have to agree to practice law on a full-time basis in the eligible county for five years. The incentive payment is equal to ninety percent of the resident tuition for the University of South Dakota School of Law and is divided over the five-years the attorney is obligated to practice in the rural county. The program will be administered by the Unified Judicial System and any interested counties or attorneys may contact the State Court Administrator’s Office at 605-773-3474 for more information. The pilot program is authorized to begin on July 1, 2013.

Attorney General Jackley urges everyone to help stop sweepstake scams
Let us know when a news event is happening.
Attorney General Marty Jackley is asking consumers statewide to reach out to their elderly family, friends or neighbors, to warm them of the dangers of sweepstake scams. The Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division has had several victims come forward to file formal complaints against these types of telemarketers. One senior wired $2,000 and attempted to wire an additional $1,800 before family members were able to stop the last transaction. In a separate case, an individual wired $1,000 and attempted to wire an additional $1,300, but a bank employee recognized the scam and was able to contact family. The Consumer Protection Division has also been working with an individual who has been harassed by a sweepstake telemarketer for 2 years with the promise of a $15 million dollar jackpot. The last attempt was an $11,000 transaction to cover additional taxes. The final transaction was stopped, but not before over $75,000 was already lost. “Take the time to talk with elderly friends and neighbors to make sure they understand the danger in responding to sweepstake offers. Keep in mind that the minute the telemarketer asks for an upfront fee to receive a sweepstakes winning, it is a scam,” said Jackley. If you have been a victim of this scam or would like additional information contact the Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division as 1-800-300-1986 or consumerhelp@state.sd.us.
There was not quite enough support by South Dakota Senators to overturn the Governor’s veto of providing certain research money to SDSU. The House also upheld two line-item vetoes issued by the Governor. Legislators considered the vetoes during the final day of the 2013 South Dakota Legislative session on January 25. SB115 would have increased the commercial fertilizer inspection fee to pay for fertilizer-related research and created the Nutrient Research Education Council. Gov. Dennis Daugaard, in issuing the veto, said this was a new tax, which he found “particularly objectionable,” because the tax “benefits a government agency-the Agricultural Experiment Station--that is already receiving an ongoing increase of more than 10 percent and an increase of 8 new full-time equivalent state employees.” Senator Shantel Krebs, R-Renner, had argued for overturning the veto because the extra 15cents would provide “localized research data that enables the U.S. Department of Ag, specifically the Natural Resource Conservation Service, to adopt national nutrient management practices that are specific to South Dakota conditions… our producers, our growers need to know what those standards should be.” Sen. Jason Frerichs, D-Wilmot, said the bill provided “targeted research dollars to our land grant university.” Sen. Corey Brown, R-Gettysburg, said he found it “little bit awkward for me to come out in opposition to this bill,” since he represents a very rural district. However, he said the bill was designed to cover the cost of a particular program, and a tax is generally broader in concept. Sen. Larry Tidemann, R-Brook-

ings, said he thought there was value in having public research, rather than leaving the research to the commercial producers of fertilizer. It was noted that other agriculture states are also doing the research for their particular conditions, which this was designed to do for South Dakota. Daugaard said he had recommended a $1 million increase in his FY14 budget proposal, which the Legislature adopted and added yet another $500 thousand in onetime funding. This more than fully restored the FY12 general fund cuts, he said. “Beyond these dollars, federal funds and other funds spending has increased almost 16 percent over pre-cut levels,” said Daugaard. “The Agricultural Experiment Station is one of the few programs in state government that has seen its funding restored fully.” Veto override proponents garnered 22 votes in favor, however that was not enough for the twothirds needed and Daugaard’s veto stood. The House agreed with the Governor’s assessment of portions of two bills, HB1137 and HB1185, that had estimated fall enrollment of technical schools and K-12 for certain funding using 2012, rather than 2013. Daugaard said he did not disagree with the Legislature’s intent to distribute money to education. “The Legislature can use a letter of intent to clarify its intention to distribute the technical institute funding according to the funding formula, and the K-12 funding according to the FY2013 actual student FTE,” said Daugaard, adding, “It is my intention to instruct that these funds be distributed according to the letter of intent.” Both the Senate and the House heard the final gavel of the 2013 session shortly after noon.
