by Karlee Barnes On Monday, November 5, the Murdo Area Chamber of Commerce partnered with the South Central RC&D to sponsor a public meeting to discuss inadequate housing in small communities, such as Murdo. A panel of speakers from federal, state and local agencies with housing programs presented information and insights on what the community can do to overcome the housing issues it currently faces. They also were able to discuss some ways to encourage community improvement through programs such as Paint South Dakota. Speakers included: Mark Lauseng, Executive Director for the South Dakota Housing Development Authority; Roger Jacobs, Field Office Director for Housing and Urban Development (HUD); Greg Henderson, Executive Director for Planning and Development District III; Marlene Knutson, Executive Director for Central South Dakota Enhancement District; Paula Corcoran, Loan Specialist from Rural Development; Bill Hanson, Rural Housing Collaborative; and Joy McCracken, NeighborWorks Dakota Home Resources and Dakota Land Trust. The meeting was well attended by business people, contractors and members of the community, as well as residents from surrounding communities. An approximate attendance of 50 was reported. Lauseng said, “The credit for this meeting goes to Jewell (Bork), what a great turnout!” Lauseng started the meeting by presenting housing programs offered through the South Dakota Housing Development Authority. He spoke about the First-Time Homebuyer Program, the Community Home Improvement Program (CHIP). the HOME Investment Partnerships Program and the Governor’s House Program, as well as the possibility of a housing needs study. These programs are all available to applicants who meet certain qualifications set by each program. All of the programs are designed to provide safe, affordable housing opportunities to lowincome or low to moderate income applicants. More information can be found about each program on the South Dakota Housing Development Authority’s website, www.sdhda. org or by calling 1.800.540.4241. Jacobs, from Housing and Urban Development (HUD) was next to speak, and told attendees about the programs offered through HUD. He talked about the programs funded through HUD, which can be found at www.hud.gov, and addressed a Housing Opportunity Fund. According to a fact sheet with data compiled by the South Dakota Housing Development Authority, a Housing Opportunity Fund will be a new state fund with revenue dedicated to enable communities all over S.D. to create and preserve homes affordable to hardworking families, veterans, persons with disabilities, seniors and others. Jacobs said that S.D. is one of three states that currently has no housing trust fund.

The need for a Housing Opportunity Fund was outlined with supporting facts. One in seven South Dakotans fall below the poverty rate. Also, rents are more than many South Dakotans can afford. According to the fact sheet, the average HUD Fair Market Rent for a two-bedroom apartment in South Dakota is $556 per month. Other facts supporting the need for the fund include: rental housing markets are tight, as evidenced by low vacancy rates; demand for housing exceeds assistance available; there is a shortage in funding to develop affordable housing; vouchers are underutilized; some South Dakotans are lacking decent and safe housing; South Dakotans are struggling to maintain a roof over their head. An in-depth review of these facts can be requested through the South Dakota Housing Development Authority. Henderson from the Planning and Development District III spoke next of Prairieland Housing Development (PHD). PHD is a non-profit organization whose main goal is to support the development of affordable housing in the region. More information can be found at www.districtiii.org. Henderson gave helpful insights to the crowd including: learn to manage expectations and don’t over reach housing. He also cautioned developers to be aware of their market, and to get commitment before starting any project. Knutson from the Central South Dakota Enhancement District went in to greater detail about the Governor’s House Program. “There have been a lot of changes with this program in the last one and one half years,” said Knutson. One specific feature new to the program is that school districts can now purchase Governor’s Homes for employees. They can use this as a recruitment method for new teachers. Qualifications include: the school must own the house and put it on school property; the town has to have a population of 2,500 people or less; and, it has to be used in a rural school district, to name a few. No school dis-

brochures and answers questions from Ray Erikson. Photos by Karlee Barnes trict has taken advantage of this so far. According to a brochure designed by the South Dakota Housing Development Authority, the price of a Governor’s House is $35,500, which includes the price of the house, transportation to the buyer’s lot and placement on the foundation or basement. For households with two or less individuals, combined income cannot exceed $42,280, and for households with three or more individuals, combined income cannot exceed $48,320. A question and answer time was opened and Dave Geisler asked, if the school district bought a Governor’s House, could they sell it to a teacher. Knutson responded that the school district could, with permission from the South Dakota Housing District. Henderson explained to attendees that a modified Governor’s House Program is available for schools, healthcare providers and medical facilities. Terry Van Dam asked about requirements on comparables. Currently, the comparables, or lack thereof, in the community make it difficult to obtain a loan. Lauseng answered the question, stating that he hears this question everywhere, and right now, he has no answer for the problem. The discussion picked back up after a break with Corcoran from Rural Development. She spoke of Direct Program Funding and Single Family Home Ownership Guaranteed Loans (section 504). Section 504 is a low income grant and loan program that helps very low income homeowners remove health and safety hazards, or helps such homeowners repair their homes. Hanson is from Centerville, S.D. and explained what his small community did to overcome the housing issues they faced. They performed a community assessment in 2004 , finding that housing was the biggest issue. McCracken concluded the panel and spoke on behalf of NeighborWorks Dakota Home Resources and Dakota Land Trust. NeighborWorks is a non-profit housing program developed to help applicants purchase, maintain and stay in a home. The target market is Western South Dakota. More information can be found at www.neighborworksdhr.org. Denny Moore asked the panel if there were any programs available for middle income families and individuals. Lauseng said, “Not really. There are programs for first time home buyers.” The First Time Homebuyer Program income requirement for Jones County is $60,400 or less for a family of two or less, with a purchase limit of $204,432. The meeting provided a lot of helpful information for those with a low income restriction. The panel urged those interested in community development to get the residents involved. They also suggested encouraging community pride, as many community improvement projects will take man power.

by Karlee Barnes According to the South Dakota Secretary of State website, sdsos.gov, Jones County reported an 82.93 percent voter turnout, which was good enough to be the highest voter turnout in South Dakota. Jones County has three precincts, number one, Okaton, number three, Murdo, and number five, Draper. Both Okaton and Murdo precincts voted in the Murdo Auditorium, while the Draper precinct voted in the Draper Town Hall. Specific precinct turnouts are as follows: Okaton, 82.95 percent; Murdo, 80.30 percent; Draper, 85.96 percent. Jones County has Check in here!… Tim Hochhalter and Jackie Fosheim check 750 registered voters, which means that 622 registered voters voters off the list as they enter the auditorium to vote.

The election is over! Of course, depending who you talk to, it didn't come out right. Sure nice not having all the ads on tv. Katherine, Bev and I sat on the election board; a nice day and a great turnout. The Lutheran gals served a soup and sandwich dinner. It worked good for us as they came and took our order and then delivered. It was very good. Did I mention pie? We had that, too – pretty yummy. We extend our sympathy to the family of Tony Lebeda. Tony passed away at Maryhouse on Friday. Services were held Wednesday in Presho with burial in Murdo beside his wife, Margaret. Helen Louder, Shirley Vik, Lill Seamans and Bev Nies listened to the first and second graders read to them on Thursday. They followed it with coffee and conversation at a cafe. Eleanor Miller and Darline Fuoss of Pierre brought the Happy Hour club's new 2013 birthday calendars to the Draper bank on Thursday. Then they visited Margaret Rankin. A week ago Saturday, visitors of Ray and Janice Pike were Jerry and Marialyce Lenocker of Mitchell. They enjoyed lunch together at a local cafe. Fred and Mary Mathews visited at the Pike's on election day. Weekend hunters at Fred and Mary Mathews were grandson Brady Aberle, student at Mitchell Vo-tech; and Terry and Gin Wingen and daughter Shelby from Epiphany. Weekend visitors at the home of Rosa Lee Styles were Shelli Terwilliger of Rapid City and Teddi Anderson of Fargo. While here they took in the Zonta Fair in Pierre and the Veterans Day Christmas Fair in Murdo. Very early last Tuesday morning, Ray and Janice Pike had visitors from Maryland. Roy and Rose Albin were on their way back to Maryland to their home in Parkton following a trip west.

dinner and also helped Tony turn over another year. Some of the group hunted Monday and I see Kayla came home with the prize. Happy birthday, Tony. We won't get into ages, just know it's somewhere around "old". Gen Liffengren visited her neighbor Bev Andrews on Sunday. Dorothy and Brad Louder visited Dwight in Kadoka on Friday. They also met Susan Hamer there. She was on her way home to Kennebec after babysitting her grandkids in Black Hawk for a few days. Kris and Dick Bradley of Pierre visited Margaret and Greg Rankin on Saturday, returning home before the weather got worse. Tyler and Chelsee Rankin, Addison and Joey, along with Chelsee's parents, Randy and Holly Nemec; and Chelsee's brother, Tyler and Angel Nemec; all of Midland, had supper together at a local cafe. The occasion was to celebrate Chelsee's birthday. Happy birthday, Chelsee. Steve Hayes was pleasantly surprised Friday evening for his 55th birthday when a party was thrown for him by his family, Marla, Jaime and Nick. It was held at a restaurant in Pierre with friends and employees helping him celebrate. Among those there from this area were: Karen Miller and Doug Snider, and Chelsee and Tyler Rankin. The Rankin kids, Addison and Joey, stayed home with Kati and Drew Venard. Betty Mann spent Monday in Pierre. She visited Helen DeRyk and Lois and Everett Zaugg and their daughter, Linda Daughters. The annual Veterans Day Christmas Fair held at the Murdo auditorium on Sunday was well attended. There were a lot of vendors there. Due to the snow and cold, I'm pretty sure attendance was down a little, but a good day with the sun shining. Sunday afternoon Nelva and Janet Louder played a new dice game called Farkle at the home of Ray and Janice Pike. Later the four of us went back to Murdo to the Veterans Day soup supper, which was also a well attended annual event. The soup and sandwiches were good. I did notice that some of the same ladies I saw at the fair were also working at the supper, so a long day for some.

The Eldon and Esther Magnuson home was a busy spot this weekend. On Friday Terri Pelle of Philip and Dusty and Heather Pelle and family of Pierre arrived. Terri returned home on Saturday in our not-so-nice weather. Tim Olson and son Dana of Minnesota arrived on Saturday. Chad Whitney and Alec were also on hand. Needless to say there was a little hunting going on. Others back to hunt and spend the weekend plus at the Ray and Shirley Vik home were sons Brian of Barnesville, Minn. and Doug of Huron and their grandson, Dean of Rapid City. Brother Steve was around for the hunt. All of them, along with dad Ray, took in the firemen's feed Saturday evening. Speaking of the firemen's feed, it ended up on a bad night. It was a foggy day and by afternoon the snow and wind hit. I felt so sorry for the guys with all the food they had prepared. We got there and I was amazed at how many turned out. They came from Murdo and Vivian and our rural area. I don't think the evening lasted as long as other years; we were home early anyway. The Severyn family was there and Leigh Severyn was the lucky winner of the 50 inch tv they raffled off. The funny part of it was it was his lil' nephew that drew his name out. Anyway it was a good supper. Our firemen prove to be good cooks, plus do a great job firefighting. Keep up the good work guys! Arriving Friday at Kim and Tony Schmidt's were Jaime Schmidt and Kayla and Jeremy Hoag and Sydney, all of Aberdeen; and Brady Schmidt of Brookings. It was a long weekend plus it was time to hunt deer. Weekend visitors of Kraig and Amanda Henrichs, Blake and Layney were parents/grandparents Kevin and Kathy Henrichs of Freeman. All attended the firemen's feed. Kevin and Kathy returned to Freeman on Sunday. On Monday the above group were at Kim and Tony's for
Trick or treat so others can eat
On Saturday, Christine Niedan, Jan Tolton, and Michelle Meinzer, all of Midland, came to Murdo and picked up Teresa Palmer who accompanied them to Pierre. Joining them there was another sister, Peg Johnson of Pierre. They enjoyed spending the day together at the Zonta Craft Fair. They were reminded of South Dakota's quick weather changes as the wind and snow hit on I-90 making for slower traveling. One pick-up was spotted overturned near Draper but the Midland group made it home safely. Well the election is over, I hope you all voted, even if the outcome wasn’t what you would have liked. What a blessing that we can vote and abide by the results. This brings to mind our Veterans, who have served this country through the years so we can enjoy freedom. And know that the cost of freedom is not “free” – many, many service men and women have given their all so we can

Seven members of the UMYF pose in front of the multitude of canned and non-perishable food that they collected as a result of their “trick or treat so others can eat” food drive. The members went door to door after the UMC Bazaar, on October 24, to collect the food items. Food continued to arrive at the church from members of the community, and the UMYF gained a large collection. The donated food will be distributed in Jones County before Thanksgiving. The UMYF will make boxes to give to local people who may need some extra help during the holiday season. Photo by Karlee Barnes
Murdo annual Christmas Fair
enjoy the freedoms of this great country. Give a hug to a Veteran and say thanks. The Christmas fair was held this weekend after a stormy Saturday. Many people got out and saw all the quality products vendors from all over the state brought to show. A very extensive array of hand crafted items were presented. Everyone enjoyed visiting and seeing old friends and tasting the Christmas goodies. Santa was there and many had pictures taken to help remember the occasion. Helen McMillan had visitors recently. Barb Rust and Kathy Bradley came to wish her a happy birthday. Marie Addison helped serve up the tea and coffee and really was impressed with all the different booths and especially enjoyed seeing all the people. Kip and Jean Kinsley had guests from Gillette: Cassie, Randy and Averyanna Lewis. They got to go to the Christmas fair and see many old friends and family, including Grandma Julia Broecher, who really enjoyed seeing Averyanna, her great-grand daughter. Michele and Jim McNeely went to Sioux Falls shopping. They met Jeff and Tricia for a quick lunch before heading back to Murdo in the storm; it was a long trip. Wanda and Roger Larson had a very busy week as Trampass’s children Baylor, Maria, Isabelle and Amelia came on Wednesday to spend a few days. Trampass and Elizabeth came on Friday with Eero. On Saturday Rayne and Carl Prahl and Roger’s folks, Olaf and Julie Larson (now in Ft. Pierre), and Kade, Jennifer and Travis Larson all had lunch with lots of fun and visiting. Posters are up for the school play BAD HAIR DAY!! The play will be November 13, at 7:00, at the auditorium. Hopefully we will have a review of the play next week. Dixie Warner went to Pierre, where she visited Lois and Everett Zaugg at Maryhouse then drove home on icy roads. Ann Geisler and kids: Tristan, Madelyn and Ryder, went to visit grandma Suzanne Brost and got snow bound over night. The blizzard moved in so fast and fierce that they stayed safe and snug. The kids enjoyed getting to play in the snow. This is the time to start Amaryllis bulbs for Christmas blooms.

Pink Power event receives an abundance of support
Lea Glaze has been helping with the event since it started and said that the event started with an invitation from a neighboring volleyball team to wear pink to an upcoming match. The Jones County volleyball girls participated, and took the idea home to show their support for cancer victims. All funds raised through the Pink Power event are donated to a local cancer victim. The Jones County volleyball team and their coaches take a look at the community to see if anybody could benefit from a little extra help, and then choose who will receive the funds. The money does not necessarily have to go to a victim of breast cancer, even though October is breast cancer awareness month. The first year, funds were donated to Barb Baker, who was a breast cancer victim. The second year, the funds were donated to Kim Schmidt, who has been affected by esophageal cancer. This year, the team and organizers chose to donate the funds raised to Amber Sylva, who was diagnosed with breast cancer. Doctors discovered that Sylva had breast cancer in August 2011. At this time, she is done will all treatments, but is still being regularly monitored. Sylva endured numerous surgeries and had both chemotherapy and radiation treatments. Sylva’s husband, Rich Sylva, quoted his mother-in-law, Margie Peters, and said that the power of prayer certainly helped them get through his wife’s struggles. In addition to funds raised through the Pink Power event, the Modern Woodmen match a certain amount of money. This year, Sylva received a check for$1,274.34, which includes a $500 match from Modern Woodmen. The event also raised enough money to present Sylva with $400 in Murdo Bucks. Glaze said that the goal of the event is that the money raised here, stays here. She said that the event raises money from local businesses and individuals, and they like to see that money spent locally, which is why they include the Murdo Bucks.

by Karlee Barnes The Third Annual Pink Power event, which is hosted every October by the Jones County volleyball team at a home game, proved successful once again. Pink Power is a fundraising event that started as a way to help local cancer survivors defray costs. Funds are raised through the sales of Pink Power t-shirts, a bake sale and the Pink Bag auction. The Pink Bag auction is like a raffle in the sense that supporters buy a $1 chance to put their name in an item that has been donated by a business or individual. Multiple pink items are donated, and supporters can buy as many tickets as they would like.
“We received great community support and it seems to be growing. We really appreciate what local business and people do for this event. Every bit counts,” said Glaze. The team and event organizers encourage community members to share any ideas, questions or concerns they have about the event. They are open to suggestions. Anyone wishing to share suggestions may contact Ashley Geigle, Beth Van Dam or Lea Glaze.

Two Minutes With the Bible
The Secret Of The Gospel by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Significantly, it was to Paul, not Peter, that “the secret of the gospel” was first revealed. (See Eph. 3:1-3; 6:19). It was he who was first sent forth to proclaim the doctrine of salvation, and to reveal all that had been accomplished at Calvary. The Old Testament Scriptures had predicted that the sins of others would be laid upon Christ, but they had not explained how Christ’s death would be the basis for the sinner’s justification. Many a criminal has gone free because his crimes have been “pinned on” another, but this has by no means justified the criminal! Some sincere Christians seem to think that substitution is the very acme of Bible truth, when in fact it is but the beginning, for substitution in itself does not imply the sinner’s justification. It is also true that salvation had been offered before Paul. Men were told what to do to be saved — though the terms varied from time to time — and were even instructed, upon Christ’s arrival, to believe in Him for salvation. At that time sacrifices, circumcision, water baptism, etc., were still required for the remission of sins — and any believer would approach God in His way. This is why these religious rites were observed throughout our Lord’s earthly ministry and even through Pentecost. The Apostle Paul, however, was later raised up to make known “the secret of the gospel,” and to proclaim the glorious accomplishments of Christ at Calvary. All the rich blessings so thrillingly set forth in Paul’s epistles flow to us from Calvary. Ours is a heavenly position because He came to earth to die for our sins. Ours is “the hope of glory,” because He suffered our shame. Ours is the blessing of “peace with God” because He bore God’s wrath upon sin. Ours is relief from the load of sin because He bore that load. Every one of our “all spiritual blessings” comes to us from Calvary. Paul’s “secret of the gospel” centers in Calvary. Little wonder St. Paul calls his preaching “the preaching of the cross.”

Christmas is her favorite holiday because she gets to spend time with her friends and family and because her birthday is the day after Christmas. If she could meet any famous person, Nicki said she would choose George Strait “because he is gorgeous and is a legendary country music singer. Miranda Lambert ranks as her favorite musician and she enjoys the TV shows Ridiculousness and Fantasy Factory. When not in school, Nicki loves to ride horses, go four-wheeling, hunting and spend time with her friends. She loves to wear the brands Cowgirl Tuff and American Eagle. Nicki admires her grandpa the most because he has been a big influence in her life along with working hard all of his life. Nicki thinks power is the least important thing in the world because we already have a King who rules over us. The most important thing to Nicki is accomplishing something and feeling success. When asked what makes her most angry, she said, “I hate it when people try to pretend to be someone they’re not.” Nicki has a big fear of snakes so her biggest fear is getting bitten by one. Nicki has no regrets, because every mistake she has ever made has just been a lesson learned. If Nicki could be anything, she would be a professional bull rider. She values faith, family and friends the most. Her parents have made a big difference in her life because they have taught her that

For Nicki, the best things about being a senior are, “Knowing that I have come this far and that it’s my last year, but most of all senior privileges. Nicki’s plans after high school are to attend SDSU and get a Bachelor’s Degree in nursing. She imagines herself in 10 years working for the Avera Childrens’ Hospital as a pediatric nurse.
All-State Chorus members earn award for Exemplary Participation, Daum honored for four years of attendance
by Paige Venard After going through auditions and hours of practice, four students, seniors Josh Daum and Nicki Kell, and juniors Skyler Miller and Carole Benda, along with music teacher Rose Comp attended All-State Chorus in Rapid City October 25-27 with 932 other choir members and their directors from 150 schools all across the state. The students rehearsed all day Friday and most of Saturday to prepare for the concert Saturday night. Kade Brost also attended Elementary Honors Choir in Rapid, where he sang along with 130 other middle school students in a concert Saturday afternoon. Jones County's Music Department received an award during All-State for School Exemplary Participation based on the percent of school students participating in choir or band. Each student is counted only once, even if they are in both choir and band. Last year 95 percent of JC students participated in music. To win the award at least 75 percent must participate. Music Director Rose Comp and the All-State quartet received the award Saturday afternoon. Josh Daum received a participation award for participating in AllState Chorus all four years of his high school career. The concert was at the Civic Center in Don Barnett Auditorium Saturday at 7:00 p.m. All-State Orchestra joined with the chorus to start off the concert with the “Star Spangled Banner” and also “Kyrie from Memorial” under the direction of orchestra director Brian Cole, from Moorhead, Minnesota. Then the orchestra played three of their own songs, “Route 66,” “Komm susser tod” and Symphony #8, Finale.” The chorus sang “Festival Sanctus,” “The Last Words of David,” “David’s Lamentation,” “If Music be the Food of Love” and “The Awakening” under the direction of Anna Hamre, a former South Dakota native who now lives and teaches at the University of California, in Fresno, California. The concert concluded with the combined orchestra and chorus performing “America the Beautiful.” Jones County's quartet all agreed that their favorite song was “The Awakening” because of its powerful meaning and its touching story. They all loved being dressed up during the concert and taking pictures with each other and new friends they had made throughout the weekend. Carole Benda said, “I learned a lot about enunciation,” while Nicki Kell said she learned the most about breathing and how to train yourself to sing higher notes. Director Rose Comp said, “I learned many new warm ups to do with the students, and I enjoyed watching the directors; they were excellent.” When the quartet wasn’t singing at rehearsals, they spent their free time going to free concerts like Tonic Sol Fa, an all-male quartet that could sing almost anything. They also enjoyed just relaxing at the hotel and doing some shopping. The All-State Choir also listened to the Elementary Honors Choir as they sang some of their selections and encouraged the younger students for their concert. Then the AllState Choir sang for the Elementary Honors choir. Kade Brost attended the 15th annual Elementary Honors Choir for his first time. He enjoyed singing a different variety of songs, because they weren’t songs he usually sang. The choir sang a total of five songs including: “I am a Child,” “Three Rhymes,” “El Barquito,” “She Shall Have Music” and “If You Could Hear My Voice.” Brost said his favorite song was “If You Could Hear My Voice.” Throughout his experience at Honors Choir, he met many new friends who made his experience more enjoyable, and he learned how to pronounce certain words to make his singing more precise. Brost said he would recommend or encourage other students to try out because "I want them to know how fun it is to sing.” His most memorable experience was when the choir Skyped the composer of “If You Could Hear My Voice.” They asked him many questions and he told them the

After strong win against Lower ACT Prep Brule, Coyotes fall to Ranchers helps students
By Gus Volmer The Coyotes played Lower Brule Friday, October 12, and celebrated parent’s night. The team then put on a show for the home crowd. In the first quarter they stopped Lower Brule from getting a single first down. The home team scored putting up 26 points against the Sioux. Second quarter the Coyotes still held the Sioux from getting points on the board and scored two more times to outscore the Sioux 39-0 in the first half. Second half the Coyotes put on another show holding Lower Brule to no scores. After scoring two more times, Jones County shut the game down as the clock clicked down in the third quarter. The Coyotes won 51-0. Stats: Leading Rushers: Chad Johnson 6 carries 77 yards, one touchdown; Philip Mathews 3 carries 83 yards, two touchdowns; Wyatt Hespe 3 carries 50 yards, one touchdown. Tackles: Skyler Miller 4. The Coyotes played Harding County Ranchers for first round of playoffs. The seniors hoped to come out on top and beat the Ranchers to advance to the second round, but first quarter the Coyotes had difficulty hanging onto the ball and couldn’t manage to get anything going. The Ranchers, on the other hand, scored twice along with getting both 2-point conversions. The Coyotes couldn’t stop the Ranchers in the second quarter either and the Ranchers went ahead 40-0 to end the half. The second half the Coyotes couldn’t overcome the Ranchers tough defense, getting a few penalties and few first downs. The Coyotes couldn’t manage to score, but the defense came out strong against the Ranchers in the second half and didn’t let them score, leaving the Ranchers with a 46-0 win. Stats: Leading Rushers: Philip Mathews 5 carries 13 yards; Wyatt Hespe 4 carries 12 yards; Skyler Miller 8 carries 25 yards; Gus Volmer 4 carries 25 yards.

By Janna Glaze Breaking up the normal school day, the sophomores took the PreAct test on Tuesday, October 30, which covered four sections: English, Math, Reading and Science. Each section had a set time limit. Taking this test will help to raise their SAT or ACT scores according to Counselor Andrea Diehm. They will have a better chance of being accepted at more colleges if they use the ACT prep available online, too. Using the ACT prep online allows students to get immediate feedback on every question they answer and helps them to build reading, writing, math and critical thinking skills that they’ll use for the rest of their lives. ACT prep online makes a big difference in students test scores and academic performance. It helps the counselors and parents to learn what areas the students need to focus on when they study. Method Test Prep is available free to high school students through SDMyLife.

“Now is not the time to abandon public support for agricultural export market development,” says Darrell Davis, Ipswich farmer and Chairman of U.S. Wheat Associates (USW). “America will likely start to lose jobs if a Farm Bill that includes authorization of agricultural export promotion programs is not passed in 2012.” Farm Bill legislation includes vital funding for USDA’s important export programs, including the Market Access Program (MAP) and Foreign Market Development (FMD) Program. MAP, which is administered by USDA’s Foreign Agricultural Service (FAS), forms a highly successful partnership between non-profit U.S. agricultural trade associations, farmer cooperatives, nonprofit state-regional trade groups, small businesses and USDA to share the costs of international marketing and promotional activities such as consumer promotions, market research, trade shows, and trade servicing. The FMD program benefits U.S. producers, processors, and exporters by assisting their organizations in developing new foreign markets and increasing market share in existing markets. Overseas promotions are targeted toward long term development. MAP and FMD are distinct, separate programs that address different aspects of market development and promotion and are examples of some of the most successful public-private partnerships. “With the expiration of the 2008 Farm Bill on September 30, FAS currently has no authority to run market promotion and development programs for FY 13. In spite
Agricultural export market development endangered
of efforts by FAS to extend FY 12 funding as long as possible, funds for MAP and FMD will end for many cooperators early in 2013,” explains Davis. “Loss of this funding will seriously compromise critical day-today export market development and promotion activities, thereby putting American farmers and workers at a substantial competitive disadvantage in the international marketplace,” stresses Davis. “Many organizations, including USW, have already started reducing their export promotion and market development activities” Exports are a vital part of the U.S. economic engine, and agricultural exports continue to be its strongest component. The export forecast for FY 12 is estimated to be approximately $136.5 billion, which will be second only to the all-time record level of $137.4 billion achieved in FY 11. For FY 13, the outlook is even brighter; with USDA projecting that agricultural exports will set a new all-time record of $143.5 billion. “It is critical that we not undermine farm and rural incomes by abandoning some of the most successful public/private programs in the U.S. government,” says Davis. He urges producers to contact our members of Congress, especially U.S. Representative Kristi Noem, to express their concern about Congress’ failure to pass the 2012 Farm Bill. Additional we need to be in contact with “Sen. Thune and Sen. Johnson, because it will have to go through conference committee before final passage” urges Davis.

Only 39 days left until Christmas
Christmas trees will begin to fill South Dakota Capitol hallways later this month for the annual Christmas at the Capitol holiday display. The 2012 theme is “Joyous Sounds of Christmas.” More than 90 Christmas trees
will be decorated November 17-18 by members of schools, churches, communities, and civic groups from across the state. Thousands of guests visit the South Dakota State Capitol each year to view the decorated trees. The display will officially begin with a grand lighting ceremony on Tuesday evening, November 20, and continue through Wednesday, December 26. Display hours for the public will be 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. CST each day. The two-story South Dakota tree specially featured this year in the Capitol rotunda was donated by Josh and Mary Arntz of Pierre. It is a blue spruce that is about 35-feet tall. The tree will be decorated by Girls Scouts – Dakota Horizons, who are celebrating their 100th anniversary. In addition to the trees, many other parts of the Capitol will be decorated for the holiday season, including the Grand Marble Staircase and the Capitol grounds.
The Clinical View
Google and the internet have been magnificent additions to the technological capability our society now has. But the old adage about “a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing” also applies to these new technological wonders. An example is offered below. The patient was a 60-year-old gentleman who had chronic heart failure problems. Several years before at a time when he was in major distress, he had been started on two drugs. One was called Coreg (carvedilol) and was clearly indicated by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) to be useful to treat congestive heart failure. The other was called Atacand (candesartan) and had a similar indication to treat congestive heart failure. These medications were started and he had done remarkably well for several years. While Coreg became generic and much cheaper, Atacand had remained quite expensive, there being no generic equivalent. He came to the clinic inquiring about a cheaper generic equivalent for Atacand and I provided him with a prescription called losartan. Both losartan and Atacand are members of a drug group called “angiotensin receptor blockers (ARB’s)”. There are now eight different patented ARB products on the market. Three of these have now become generic. These are losartan (Cozaar), valsartan (Diovan), and irbesartan (Avapro). Losartan was the first ARB product on the market from many years ago and is a relatively weak antihypertensive. However, studies done over the next several years demonstrated that it was a very potent protector of kidney function in patients with diabetes. Studies such as the one to get the diabetic renal protection indication from the FDA are very expensive amounting to a million dollars or more to achieve FDA approval. In today’s world, a new drug must receive FDA approval for a given indication before it can be sold publically. Shortly after losartan came on the market, another product called Atacand (candesartan) received approval from the FDA for treatment of heart failure. Note that candesartan and losartan are very similar products although candesartan seems to be somewhat more potent in treating hypertension. The gentleman above had been placed on candesartan and used it for several years successfully, but now was aware that there were generic products available and had spoken to his cardiologist about obtaining a cheaper product that was generic. His cardiologist prescribed losartan for him.
Murdo Coyote
• Dr. P.E. Hoffsten •
This gentleman was computer literate. He went home and Googled candesartan and losartan and angiotensin receptor blockers. He noted that candesartan had an FDA approved indication for treating heart failure. But he noticed losartan did not have an FDA approved indication for treating congestive heart failure. He made an appointment with me to discuss this and help decide whether or not he should save the money that would result from using the generic losartan. I indicated to him that as far as I knew, the drug effect of a angiotensin receptor blocker seemed to be possessed by each member of the entire class. And thus, I did not have a problem with him changing from the more expensive drug to the cheaper one. But he wondered why losartan had never received the official FDA approval for treatment of congestive heart failure and was it safe to use? Our medical system has a number of flaws. Most of them are mandated by economics. When a drug company does research and discovers a new drug, it must be approved by the FDA for a given indication before it can be marketed. As mentioned above, this is a very expensive process. The indications for use of a new drug must be very specific. For instance, losartan was studied for its effect in preventing progressive kidney disease in diabetics and it works remarkably well. But it was never formally tested for approval by the FDA for treatment of congestive heart failure because the research program to achieve this was so expensive. That doesn’t mean that losartan can’t be used for treatment of congestive heart failure. It merely means that there has not been a formal request for FDA approval. Strange as it may sound, once a drug is on the market, physicians can use it for any indication they see fit. Thus, it is perfectly acceptable to use losartan to treat congestive heart failure if the drug will work based upon the physician’s individual judgement. The medical terminology for this is “off label drug use”. It simply means that physicians often discover that a drug has other uses than that for which it was originally approved by the FDA. This is perfectly legal. In 1938, there was a law passed called a Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act. This law required that a drug could not be marketed unless it was demonstrated to have beneficial effects for a given medical indication and an acceptable safety profile. Every drug that comes to the market goes through FDA

approval. By this same act, drug companies were not allowed to advertise their product for any indication other than that for which they were approved. Thus, while it is not against the law for a physician to use a drug for whatever indication he sees fit, it is against the law for the pharmaceutical company to advertise their product for uses other than the original or any subsequent FDA approved use. Some of the most expensive fines doled out by the FDA have resulted from drug companies advertising their product for off-label drug use. That is against the law. But as mentioned previously, physicians may use the drug for any reason they see fit. Of course, the physician is responsible for the decisions and recommendations he makes in prescribing a medication. Public surveys have demonstrated a lack of understanding regarding the FDA and its responsibility. Half of the public believe that off-label drug use should be outlawed. Fortunately, that has not occurred at this time or a large number of very beneficial drug uses that will never be FDA approved will no longer be available to the medical profession. An example is the use of the drug Indocin. This is a very potent antiarthritic drug. Incidentally, it was found that this drug will close an abnormal blood vessel in the newborn child and prevent surgery. If off-label drug use were to be outlawed, the use of Indocin to treat a patent ductus arteriosis in babies would no longer be available, and these babies would have to undergo surgical treatment for their condition rather than a simple pill. There is a good use for offlabel drug use but it depends upon the judgement and skill of the physician using it. The FDA allows a drug to be marketed for a given indication which is the only feature of the drug the company can advertise, but health care providers may use that drug for a host of other medical problems.
It is time again for the 2012 Ag Horizons Conference which is set to take place November 27 and 28 in Pierre. The Ag Horizons Conference will focus this year on “Weathering Change” in agriculture.

Murdo Coyote Lookin’ Around
• Syd Iwan •
“It makes you wonder,” is a common phrase of friend Leo. In truth, there are lots of things out there that do make you wonder from why people do the things they do, to election results, to imponderable matters of time and the universe. Take Indian tacos for instance. I can never quite believe that eating them doesn’t result in major indigestion. They start with some bread fried in oil or grease and topped with very spicy hamburger probably involving hot peppers and their ilk. Add some innocuous tomatoes, lettuce and cheese, and finish it off with lots of raw onion and green pepper. Salsa and sour cream go on top making it seem like stomach upset should be the natural result. I’m always surprised when, after eating this tasty concoction, I suffer no ill effects. Tums aren’t even required before settling down for a nap afterwards. As Leo says, “It makes you wonder.” The size of the universe is another subject that is hard to wrap your mind around. Consider Deneb, for example, which is one of the fifteen brightest stars visible in this hemisphere. It is roughly 1,600 light years away which means the light you see from Deneb tonight started traveling here 1,600 years ago at the speed of light or 186,000 miles per second (700 million miles per hour,) and it is just now arriving. Oof! Secondly, since it is so very far away and still so bright, that means it is huge—probably 100 to 200 times larger than our sun. Deneb has always been a favorite of mine for its brightness despite its distance, and also because it is one star of the Summer Triangle which graces the summer sky. Then too, it is in the constellation, Cygnus, also known as the Northern Cross, and which our Lord obviously put prominently in the night sky to remind us of himself. There’s another cross in the southern hemisphere in case you go there. Interesting. By the way, how well do you deal with the concept that time and space both have no beginning and no end? How can that be? On the other hand, if space ends at a wall or something, isn’t there going to be something on the other side of the wall? These are matters so far beyond our experience that they boggle the mind. We might accept them as true, but we can’t really understand them. That goes for God too. He is so far outside our human experience that we might be inclined to doubt his existence. Can he really control everything about the world and still be personally concerned about us? The short answer to that is, “Yes.” It’s hard to look at the symmetry and complexity of this world and not see the work of a skillful creator. We, however, can no more completely understand God than can we grasp the idea of time and space having no beginning or end. That, of course, doesn’t mean God isn’t there. It just means he’s beyond what we can comfortably take in all at one time. He did make it somewhat easier for us by sending his son in human form to earth so we could see many characteristics of God and identify with him without being overwhelmed by his ultimate glory. Well, have I made you uncomfortable by suggesting you consider matters that you can’t begin to fathom? It is unsettling, to be sure. I don’t drag these subjects out and consider them very often just because they tend to put my mind in a fuss. There is an antidote, however. Just lay them aside for the present and go deal with things you can comprehend—read a book, play a computer game, eat a hamburger, take a drive. In short, get on with life. Still, occasionally we need to get beyond ourselves and our little world. We have to consider that time goes on forever and that personal preparations may need to be made for that eventuality. Now that I’ve given due thought to all these hard subjects, though, I need a break. I need to come back to earth. Perhaps I’ll go for a drive and get the mail. When I get back, I could have a bite to eat and maybe take a short nap. These are nice manageable endeavors and things that don’t jangle my nerves. Those subjects that are beyond me can safely be put on hold until tomorrow when I might be more inclined to wonder some more. Maybe tomorrow I’ll consider subatomic particles or things that are way too small to see, or not. It depends on how I feel. That probably applies to you as well, but there’s plenty out there to wonder about. Happy wondering.

by Karlee Barnes The November Jones County Commissioners meeting was held Thursday, November 8 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. Those present included: John Brunskill, Sam Seymour, Monte Anker, Helen Louder, Ryan Willert, Lawrence Roghair, Bruce Royer, Angie Kinsley and Karlee Barnes. First on the agenda was the current issue regarding 4-H in the county. Ryan Willert came in to speak to the commissioners and told them that SDSU, who heads the 4-H program in the state, will be in Kadoka later in the month to listen to concerns about the program. Due to budget cuts, Jones County, Haakon County, Jackson County and Mellette County have had to combine, sharing one advisor. With the shared advisor time, each county is only getting about one hour per week with the advisor, who is Carrie Weller. The board advised that the individual counties currently weren’t getting enough time with the advisor. According to SDSU, if a county has less than 2,500 kids, they have to combine to make a four county program. The board was in agreement that they will bring their concerns to SDSU at the upcoming meeting. Roghair approached the board about leasing the land right to the west of the current Jones County

Sportsman’s Club, where the old ambulance building sits. Anker said that he would be in favor of leasing the ground. The board is going to discuss the matter and get back to Roghair. Kinsley was next on the agenda and the board asked her if she would be interested in the 4-H secretary job, and a part-time emergency management job. Kinsley questioned if the secretary job would provide benefits, and if it would be a salary or hourly paid position. She advised to leave it on the table and discuss it further at a later date. Brunskill brought up two requests for easements. The first was from West Central to run an under ground powerline near the Murdo rodeo arena. The second was from Golden West to dig a communication cable near the cell tower east of Draper at exit 208. Both easements were approved after Royer joined the meeting. The board then approved the bills and discussed the election results. The commissioners brought up the issue of rebuilding the handicap accessible ramp in the back of the building. Seymour mentioned that he asked Raymond Stotts if he would oversee the project. Anker advised that something needed to be done before the weather got too cold to pour new concrete. Royer told the board about plans to extend the football field parking lot on the east end and change the entrance to the rodeo arena so a semi and trailer can get in and out of the lot if need be. He also mentioned that it would be easier to get a pickup and horse trailer in and out. While doing this, Royer also hopes to fix the water issues on the practice field directly south of the football field. To conclude the meeting, the commissioners canvassed the votes from the election, checking to make sure all numbers added up.

Counting our blessings
by Senator John Thune The passing months have highlighted some of the country’s deep divides and overwhelming challenges. As the end of the year approaches, it is important to pause and give thanks for the many blessings that come with living in this great country. The national celebration of Thanksgiving reminds each of us to set aside our frustrations, worries, and problems, and instead take time to express gratitude for the good fortune in our lives. We are thankful for the exceptional service of our brave troops around the world, who protect our nation from foreign and domestic threats. We are thankful to live in a country where we can freely worship our Creator, speak our minds without fear, and enjoy the freedom that is the cornerstone of our society. And perhaps most of all, we are thankful for the blessings of family, for the support of our communities, and for the fellowship of our friends and neighbors. South Dakotans not only speak words of gratitude, but also express gratitude through their acts of goodwill and charity. In communities across the state, fundraisers are held for families experiencing tough times, neighbors offer a helpful hand with errands, and food drives and Thanksgiving dinners are provided for those who are in need of a

warm meal and friendship. The selfless acts of those around us make each of us thankful that South Dakota is the place we call home. As the year draws to a close, I am thankful for my wonderful family and the opportunity to continue to serve our state in the U.S. Senate. The new year will be filled with challenges, but it will also be filled with the promise for many great blessings. Kimberley and I wish all South Dakotans and their families safe travels and a very blessed Thanksgiving.
Murdo Residents are being reminded to follow snow removal procedures as outlined in City Ordinance 70.0047, 71.10 and 10.99 as follows: It shall be unlawful for any person to stop, stand, park or leave unattended any motor vehicle upon any street during the hours the streets are to be kept free from vehicles for the facilitation of snow removal. The penalty for violation of this ordinance shall be a fine of up to $500 or imprisonment up to 30 days or both. Additionally the City may tow the offending vehicle at the owners expense. With the large amounts of snow the last few years, there were several areas with these problems. Keeping your vehicles off the street allows crews to clear the streets better and navigation on the streets will be easier for everyone. The City also asks that snow removal from areas such as sidewalks, private drives or parking lots where snow is pushed into the City streets be done prior to City crews cleaning the streets to avoid expense of city crews going over areas additional times. Crews start cleaning at 4:00 a.m. and attempt to have Main Street done before 8:00 a.m. If there are additional areas that can not be cleaned prior to that, please contact the City office and make arrangements for snow placement. With everyone’s cooperation, keeping the streets and sidewalks free of snow will be easier and safer for everyone. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the City office at 669-2272.

Thune to seek re-election as Senate Republican Conference Chairman
U.S. Senator John Thune (RS.D.) today announced that he will seek re-election for Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference, the third highest ranking Republican position. Thune has served as Conference Chairman since January of this year. “America continues to face enormous challenges and the consequences have never been greater,” said Thune. “Our country is at a crossroads and communicating our positive Republican vision to grow the economy, create jobs, and restore our nation’s fiscal health couldn’t be more important. Senate Republicans have solutions and we will work hard to aggressively take our message directly to the American people.” Thune previously served as Chairman of the Senate Republican Policy Committee and as Vice Chairman of the Senate Republican Conference.
