that blood remaining available. Blood can be stored for only 42 days, and accidents tend to happen more frequently during the holiday season. Influenza is also more prevalent at this time of year. This impacts the blood supply because people who are ill cannot donate. The United Blood Services will be hosting a blood drive in Murdo Friday, November 16. It will be held at the Jones County Ambulance building from 8:15 a.m. 12:30 p.m. Make your appointment to give blood at www.UnitedBloodServices.org or by calling 605-3428585. With each donation, donors receive a free total cholesterol test and earn points in United Blood Services’ Hero in Me reward program. Volunteer blood donors must be at least 16, weigh a minimum of 110 pounds and be in good health. Additional height/weight requirements apply to donors 22 and younger, and donors who are 16 (or 17, some areas) must have signed permission from a parent or guardian.

by Karlee Barnes The Jones County after school program’s Register Tapes for Education program has tripled their seven month goal, and they only have two months under their belt. The after school program partnered with Murdo Family Foods to turn cash register receipts into free, valuable and important educational equipment. Shoppers at Murdo Family Foods have the opportunity to leave their receipts in the designated container at the grocery store or leave the receipts at the after school program. This simple act will provide great opportunities for the Jones County after school program. Each dollar spent at Murdo Family Foods earns the after school program one point. At the start of the program on September 1, after school program director Stacey Booth reported that a goal was set for 20,000 points. As of November 1, the after school program had accumulated 68,000 points. The program runs until March 31, 2013. Booth said, “our possibilities have opened up quite largely.” In September, the after school proWhen a branch of the United States military becomes engaged, an event can take on a certain air of significance. The occasion is the renewal of the biggest football rivalry in the state when South Dakota State and South Dakota meet at Coughlin-Alumni Stadium in the final game of the regular season at 2 p.m. Saturday, November 17. Leading the charge are the Army ROTC programs from both schools. In “Operation Road Runner,” the respective units will run the ceremonial game ball from Vermillion to Brookings and deliver it prior to kickoff. “This past fall we talked with the USD Army ROTC staff and thought we should come up with a joint effort to support not only both Army ROTC programs, but the two universities as they resume their football rivalry as Division I members,” said Maj. Aaron Schultz, professor of military science at SDSU. “The cadets are excited to be part of this event for the challenge and to participate as a team with both Army ROTC programs coming together in Operation Road Runner.” There will be 30 cadets from each Army ROTC program participating in the 132-mile journey, which starts Friday, November 16, at the DakotaDome. A brief ceremony will be held at noon prior to the cadets running the ball down South Dakota highways. “We thought it would be a great team-building exercise for the cadets and a great way to generate support for the football game,” said Maj. Ross Nelson, professor of military science at USD. The cadets will run through the towns of Centerville, Chancellor and Hartford during the afternoon and late evening on Friday. The trek resumes early Saturday morning through Colton, Chester, Colman and finally Brookings. “Although many of the times will be late in the evening and early in the morning, we hope alumni and fans will be around to cheer on the cadets as they arrive in the local communities,” said Schultz. The plan calls for a cadet from one school to run a mile with the football and then switch with a cadet from the other school. Following behind the runner will be two buses holding the remaining cadets. “We intend to rotate back and forth between SDSU and USD cadets,” said Schultz. Cadets will bring many of their own snacks and each program will provide various other food and drink items. A 4-H group in Vermillion will serve lunch on Friday at the DakotaDome. Pizzas will be provided from Pizza Ranch in Hartford and breakfast will be served at the Brookings VFW on Saturday morning. Schultz said he expects some “friendly competition” from the Army ROTC cadets during their

The Jones County Ambulance is looking to expand their EMT members and would like to have anyone who might be interested in becoming an EMT to let them know. They have set a date for February 1, 2013 for the first EMT training. Watch the Coyote Briefs in the future for more information regarding the training. Anyone with an interest or anyone with questions that the ambulance crew could answer are asked to call and leave a message at 669-3125 or to call Tammy Van Dam at 530-7553.
Jones County Ambulance
The Jones County Ambulance will be hosting a public meeting Wednesday, November 7, at 7:00 p.m. at the Turner Community Center on Main Street in Murdo. The study funded by a previously earned grant will be discussed in addition to the future of the ambulance service.
Every year, most of us celebrate Thanksgiving the same way: family, feasting and football. These are all good, of course. But there is another tradition we might consider adding. We can donate blood! “As we know, hospitals don’t close for the holidays,” said Lori Liebman, Donor Recruitment Director at United Blood Services. “The blood you donate now can save someone’s life over the Thanksgiving and Christmas seasons. Could there be a better gift to give?” Liebman adds, “Donating in November is a great way to start the holiday season because it reminds us that one person can truly make a difference.” Good health and safety can never be taken for granted. Any day might bring an illness – or any moment, an injury. Giving blood is one way of pausing to reflect on our good fortune, while helping to assure that those in need of lifesaving transfusions can depend on
gram had their eye on a personal P.A. system for the mini gym that would cost them about 20,000 points. Now that their points have more than tripled their goal with five months left, Booth said they have more options. She also is reminding students and families that they still have time to turn in their sweepstakes entries. Through the program, students received an opportunity to enter a sweepstakes that would earn them an iPod Shuffle, and their family 500 dollars in groceries. Local grocery shoppers can easily contribute to the program. It is as simple as leaving a receipt and costs nothing more than what would already be paid for in groceries.
Thanksgiving Dinner
Joe Connot and Jay Keever will be hosting the annual community Thanksgiving Dinner again this year. The meal will be at noon on Thursday, November 22, in the high school lunch room. Anybody wishing to attend may bring something to share, or may just bring their appetite!

Annual Christmas Fair
by Karlee Barnes The Jones County elementary students had the chance to cast their votes at their precinct, the north lobby of the school, on Tuesday, November 6. They had a shortened ballot consisting of the republican and democratic presidential candidates, the South Dakota Representative candidates, and the Jones County Treasurer candidates. The students have been learning about the voting process and the candidates leading up to the election and had the chance to participate in a mock voting. Elementary principal Lorrie Esmay cleared up some number

run to highlight the renewal of the series. The two football programs have met 104 times since 1889, but this year marks the first meeting since 2003. “Both Army ROTC programs win because when the cadets get commissioned as Second Lieutenants in the U.S. Army they will work with people from all walks of life and other branches,” said Schultz. “I expect the atmosphere to be like the passion that is played out in the Army/Navy football game every year. “Our goal is to promote the SDSU and USD Army ROTC programs and to showcase the start of this big game. We hope this will be a start to a new Army ROTC tradition every fall.” Said Nelson: “The weather may be colder, but we’re hoping that football fans and community members along the route will come out and show their school spirit and support the future leaders in the U.S. Army.” The approximate arrival times for the cadets on November 16: • Centerville, 4 p.m. • Chancellor, 7 p.m. • Hartford, 10 p.m.

Wasn't Halloween a perfect night! Usually there is an ol' witch handing out goodies at my house, but this year I decided to change and was a nice redhead with freckles. We don't get many gobblins anymore but it's fun having the few we get. In talking to son Brian, who lives in Rapid Valley, he counted approximately 279, down from the approximate 300 last year. Lila Mae Christian, Shirley Vik, Velma Scott, Helen Louder and Margaret Rankin listened to the first and second graders read to them last Thursday. Margaret listened to her great-granddaughter, Peyton Rankin's, group. They went to a cafe after for refreshments. Happy birthday to Steve Hayes on November 7. He turns the same as the speed limit. No, not I90! I'm talking about Highway 16. Eldon Magnuson turned over another year on Halloween and Ernie Kessler changed his age the next day, so Esther and Kathie took the guys out for supper at a local cafe Wednesday evening. Gen Liffengren called on Bev Andrews on Saturday. She came bearing a bouquet of flowers which should have brightened Bev's day. There was a good turnout last Tuesday for the indian tacos served at the senior center. They were very good as was the dessert. I can attest to that. Pastor Rick and Jane Hazen attended the Presho UMC bazaar Sunday evening which was a turkey and dressing supper with all the trimmings. They report it was very good. They also got in a good visit with the church Pastor Wynstrig. Eldon and Esther Magnuson were Friday evening supper guests of Delores Volmer in Presho. Gen Liffengren was very pleased Sunday when her grandson, Christopher, and friend Joe of Rapid City came and attended to some jobs (indoors and out) for her. Kris Bradley and Karen Authier of Pierre spent Saturday with

neapolis. They stayed in Brandon that evening and then on to the city Friday. Friday evening they met John and Vicki Hagemann of Yankton and son Chance and friend and Jordan Hagemann at the Target Center to watch the Minnesota Timberwolves play the Sacramento Kings. The Timberwolves won their game. Saturday morning the group met for a family brunch. In the afternoon they all gathered at Eden Prairie for the graduation of Jordan from the Le Cordon Bleu College. Jordan has a job in Minneapolis at the Hilton Garden Inn. Casey and Monica shopped at the Mall of America and had supper alone to celebrate Monica's birthday. Sunday morning the group, along with Jordan's friend, Colleen, and her family had brunch together before departing for their respective homes. As most know, Jordan is our grandson. We were invited to his graduation but decided it was just a little too far. Congrats to Jordan and happy birthday, Monica. Nelva and Janet Louder spent Saturday in Pierre. In the afternoon they stopped in at Parkwood for coffee and visits with Mona Sharp, Lillian Severyn, Darline Fuoss and several others. That evening we had complimentary tickets from Bill and Ellen Valburg (they were unable to use them so they gave them to us) for the Pierre players "Yankee Tavern." It was good. We had not been there before. My, they do have a lot of lines and I never heard them being prompted. We never had any problem hearing them. It was an enjoyable time. We also had a brief visit there with former Draperite Lois (Schmutz) Knudson. Now for Sunday: following church Nelva and Janet Louder went to Kadoka to the holiday festival sponsored by the nursing home. There was a very good beef dinner and then into the hall for the many booths. Afterwards, we visited Dwight Louder, Melford Koester and Mary Ellen Herbaugh. From there we went to Deanna Byrd and the Stone family home. Oh yeah, on the way to Kadoka there was something wet falling from the sky. I think it used to be called rain! It's very welcome anyway.

Rosa Lee Styles attended a Master Gardener luncheon and meeting held at the Mission home of Norma Sazama on Saturday.

On Thursday, Rosa Lee Styles, Margie Boyle and Janet Louder got in a couple of games of canasta at Ellouise Ellwangers. It's been a long time since we've played.

Halloween fun enjoyed by elementary students
by U.S. Senator Tim Johnson This year we saw the welcome return of over 500 South Dakota National Guardsmen who had deployed in support of Operation Enduring Freedom and Operation New Dawn. These men and women join the more than 72,000 veterans that call South Dakota home. Residents in communities across the state turned out to show their support in welcome home parades and ceremonies. This Veterans Day, communities will again gather together to honor those who have served in our country’s military. As we celebrate this holiday, we not only honor the recently returned National Guard veterans but all those who have worn our nation’s uniform and sacrificed so much in service to our country. With the recent passing of Senator McGovern, we’re reminded again of the valor of the Greatest Generation. As a young pilot, George flew 35 B-24 Liberator missions over Europe. When his plane was struck by enemy fire, he adeptly crash-landed it, earning the Distinguished Flying Cross and the Air Medal. While his actions were certainly heroic they were not unique. There were countless men and women like him that bravely answered the call to serve, placing themselves into harm’s way and enduring unimaginable hardships. More World War II veterans die every day, but
Honoring our nation’s Veterans
their contributions to our country’s history will never be forgotten. A common characteristic among veterans across the generations is humility. I can’t tell you the number of times I’ve thanked a veteran for their service and their response has been, “I’m no hero; I was just doing my job.” When they make these humble remarks, these men and women aren’t acknowledging that their work is something that in the past decade only one half of one percent of the population was willing to do. They aren’t recognizing that their job pulls them away from their families and puts them in dangerous situations, all so that we may live safely in America and the freedoms we hold dear may be preserved. If there was ever reason to be a little boastful, this would be the time. With this modest attitude, our veterans may not ask for extra benefits, attention, or praise, but they are deserving of all that and more. I have used my role in the Senate to be a champion for veterans’ issues, securing strong funding for the Department of Veterans Affairs and working to make sure we honor the promises made to our servicemembers and stand by them when they take off our nation’s uniform. I will continue this effort and hope you will join me in honoring our nation’s veterans, not just on Veterans Day but every day.

Recent visitors in Rapid City visiting Sonny and Evelyn Tornow were Mel and Linda Kessler and Jerry Henderson. Evelyn Tornow is now back living with Sonny at Primrose Retirement Center, 224 E. Minnesota, Apt 224, Rapid City (visitors always welcome). Sonny and Evelyn Tornow’s grandson, Tyler Lanam, participated in the South Dakota All State Concert on October 27 in Rapid City. The whole Daum family got together the weekend before and had a early birthday party. Brian and his wife, Tammi, and the their kids, Caleb and Abby, were able to come from Montana which Rose was very thankful for. The sisters here in South Dakota loved getting to see them, too. Rose will probably have another evaluation in November to see if she can come home or what's next. She is improving, her speech is good, little by little getting better in her leg and she likes the facility and has good spirits/attitude. Rose’s address is: Rose Daum c/o The Victorian Rm 30 1321 Columbus St. Rapid City, S.D., 57701. She really appreciates hearing from folks back home, and just had her 79th birthday on the October 28 so if people would like to send her a belated card she would sure like that. Her phone number is 605-877-0591. The Murdo Senior Center held their annual taco feed on Tuesday, October 29. The tacos were very good and the attendance was, too. The quilt that the craft ladies made was raffled off with Lori Nix being the lucky winner. Another quilt will be raffled off in December; this one has been machine quilted and is very nice. Tickets are available from senior center members or at the Christmas Fair, November 11, at the auditorium. Cecelia Newsam went to Pierre, where she made a donation to hospice and did some shop-

They go out at 8:00 a.m. to put the flags up, weather permitting, and take down at 4:00 p.m. Call Gene Cressy at 2801324 for more details. Tom and Jody Lebeda went to Pierre on Saturday to Maryhouse, where they visited Lois and Everett Zaugg and Anton Lebeda, Tom’s brother. They later met Betty and Russell Beck and Sophia New for supper. Linda and Larry Labrier were surprised by LaShae who came home for a quick visit this weekend from Frontier Bible School in LaGrange, Wyoming. Helen McMillan, Jackie Fosheim, Karla Mannhalter and Jody Lebeda went to the Pierre Players play “Yankee Tavern” on Sunday afternoon, where they met Mary Buxcel. They then visited with Lois Zaugg and Everett Zaugg at Maryhouse. While there, they also visited with Helen DeRyk. She sends greetings to all her friends here and invites you to stop in for a visit . This is the perfect time to divide those spring blooming perennials. Rule of thumb is spring blooming divide or transplant in the fall; and fall blooming move or divide in the early spring. Ladies, on November 14 at 1:00 p.m., a start-up group will be meeting at the senior center to do their own sewing, craft or needle work projects. This is something NEW and is just for fun and sharing. Everyone interested in sharing your projects is welcome. Each will bring their own project and will work on it during the gettogether. You can come just to see what we will be doing or if you just want to learn the basics of knitting, crochet or to quilt or sew, this may be part of what we will do, too. This is just a first meeting and attendance will decide if this is going to keep on going or not. Call Jody Lebeda if you want more information.

Open meetings commission acts on three complaints
Complaints that two state boards violated the open meetings law were dismissed by the South Dakota Open Meetings Commission October 29 in Sioux Falls. The commission heard separate complaints against the state Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners and the State Board of Massage Therapy related to public meetings those boards held earlier this year. A third case heard by the open meetings commission resulted in a public reprimand against the Union County Weed Board. The weed board did not dispute that it failed to provide adequate public notice of its May 29 meeting at the Union County Courthouse. State law requires that public boards must post a meeting agenda at least 24 hours before they meet. Union County State's Attorney Jerry A. Miller recommended to the open meetings commission that the weed board be reprimanded. He had received complaints from a group of residents in the county about the illegal meeting. Chad Haber of Tea had filed a complaint against the State Board of Medical and Osteopathic Examiners, alleging that the board did not properly follow its agenda and held illegal closed-door sessions as part of its March 27-28 meeting in Sioux Falls. Open meetings commissioners did not agree with Haber. They concluded that the medical examiners board did follow its meeting agenda and that the closed-door sessions it held to discuss physician discipline matters were covered by state law. In the complaint involving the State Board of Massage Therapy, Rhanda Heller of Sioux Falls alleged that the board did not post a meeting agenda, held an improper closed-door session, did not provide the public with handouts of board materials and failed to provide adequate minutes. “I ask you to send a strong message to this board,” Heller, a licensed massage therapist, told the commissioners Monday. “Please do not give them a warning ticket.” Open meetings commissioners had several questions for massage therapy board attorney James Carlon of Pierre, but in the end concluded that either no open meetings law violations occurred or that they didn't have jurisdiction to rule on at least one of the alleged violations. One of Heller’s charges was that the massage therapy board did not properly state a reason for an executive session. Commissioner Glen Brenner of Pennington County said the allegation did not have merit because the law does not require a public board to state a reason when making a motion to go into executive session. An informational brochure published the attorney general's office in conjunction with several statewide associations representing local governments and the news media states that motions for executive session must refer to the specific state law allowing the executive session, such as for discussion of student conduct or discussion of a pending lawsuit with a board's attorney. In other business, the commission elected Aurora County State's Attorney John Steele as its new chairman, replacing Bon Homme County State's Attorney Lisa Rothschadl. Steele served a term as commission chairman in 200608. Steele has been a member of the commission since its origination in 2004. The commission is made up of five state's attorneys. If the commission finds that a state or local board has violated the open meetings law, it can issue a public rep-

by Pastor Rick Hazen, United Methodist Church, Murdo and Draper “How is it with your soul?” That’s a question that John Wesley, the founder of the Methodist Movement, would ask in the early Methodist Societies. No matter who you are or whatever church you belong to, may I suggest that we still need to be asking one another that very same question today. “How is it with your soul?” What are the Spiritual Disciplines you follow to keep yourself in tune and in step with God every day? Or are you “too busy doing your own thing,” and God is the furthest thing from your heart and from your mind? A while ago, I preached a four part series — “Why do we need Jesus Christ?” “Why do we need the church?” “Why do we need this particular church?” and “To whom does the church belong?” To summarize, we need Jesus Christ because we need a Savior, we cannot save ourselves. We need the church because the church is the instrument that God uses to “equip the saints for ministry” so that we can bring glory to Him, especially if we are to be dedicated and committed followers of Jesus Christ. The modern church, just like the early church, is not perfect, but you see, it is through the church that we all are striving for perfection. We cannot do that by ourselves. We cannot be dedicated, committed and faithful followers (disciples) of Jesus Christ (the bridegroom) without the church (the bride of Christ). It is through the church we are accountable to one another and to God through Jesus Christ. In what unique

scorecards for those wishing to list all the hypocrites present, TV dinners for those who can’t go to church and also cook dinner. Finally, the sanctuary would be decorated with Christmas poinsettias and Easter lilies for those who have never seen the church without them.” With the coming of Advent on December 2nd, which is the beginning of a new church year, God will invite you once again, as He does every Sunday. Why stay away? What are you afraid of? You have no good excuse to stay away. May God soften your heart, touch your soul and your life, so that you reject “the worldliness” in your life that has become your “false god” holding you back. That “false god” will only end up destroying you and won’t get you closer to God. All of what you think brings you joy and satisfaction now will, in the future, leave you shallow and empty. Your heart’s desire is a deep and lasting relationship with the Lord which will “quench the thirsting of your soul.” If you want to be close to God, confess your sins, turn your heart and your life over to God’s Son, Jesus Christ. In the shedding of His blood on the cross for you, Jesus Christ “paid the price” for your soul to give you “eternal life.” It’s not all about you! It’s all about God! God’s the One in control. May you strive to be made into the likeness of God’s Son, Jesus Christ and go on to “Perfection.” How is it with your soul?
way does your church share the love of Jesus Christ with others during the week? The last question: To whom does the church belong? To the pastor? To the Bishop or other church hierarchy? To the Elders? To the denomination? To the congregation? To the trustees? The Church (any church) belongs to the Lord Jesus Christ. See Acts 20:28: “Keep watch over yourselves and all the flock of which the Holy Spirit has made you overseers. Be shepherds of the church of God, which he bought with his own blood.” Over the years, pastors hear any number of excuses why some folks stay away from church. I share with you what one church decided to do to get members back into the church: “Many believers don’t see the importance of regular church attendance. Members of Northend Prince of Peace Lutheran Church in Seattle received a special announcement in the mail, listing the many things that could be done for them at church on the following ‘no excuse-to-stay-home Sunday.’ “According to the pastor, cots would be available for those who say Sunday is their only day to sleep in. Eye-drops would be supplied for those who have red eyes from watching late Saturdaynight TV shows, or staying out too late. There would be steel helmets for those who say the roof would cave in if they ever went to church, blankets for persons who think the church is too cold, fans for those who say it is too hot,

Help In Time Of Need by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Our Chicago papers, recently, carried two interesting front page items; one about Timothy Nolan, a Chicago policeman who pleaded in vain for help while he battled two toughs. Sixty people stood about, watching him fight for his life, but not one of them helped him or even bothered to call another policeman. They just stood and watched. The other item was about a twelve-year-old girl, named Susan Benedict, who had come from Clinton, Wisconsin, to visit Chicago. As Susan sat in the Greyhound Bus Station at Clark and Randolph, a thief grabbed her purse and ran. Perhaps it was because she was a sweet, defenseless twelve-year-old, but in any case, about a dozen people who witnessed the incident, followed the thief until one got a policeman, who caught the thief and returned the purse to the little girl. It is a very frightening thing not to be able to find help when it is desperately needed — and just as wonderful to have help when it is needed. Thank God, He is always ready to help us in our deepest need — the salvation of our souls. Are you afraid that your many sins have placed you in a position beyond help — that you have sinned too greatly for God to forgive you? Then listen to Eph. 1:7, where the Apostle Paul says, by divine inspiration: “We have redemption through [Christ's] blood, THE FORGIVENESS OF SINS ACCORDING TO THE RICHES OF HIS GRACE.” Rom. 5:20,21 will give further encouragement along this line: “…WHERE SIN ABOUNDED, GRACE DID MUCH MORE ABOUND, THAT AS SIN HATH REIGNED UNTO DEATH, EVEN SO MIGHT GRACE REIGN, through righteousness, unto eternal life, by Jesus Christ our Lord.” Paul knew this by experience, for he was the leader of the world’s rebellion against Christ, but he was saved in one moment by the grace of God. This is why he says: “This is a faithful saying, and worthy of all acceptation, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am chief” (1 Tim. 1:15). If God saved the “chief of sinners,” He is surely willing to save you, “for whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved” (Rom. 10:13).

Representative Noem calls for study into USDA school lunch standards
Rep. Kristi Noem joined House Committee on Education and the Workforce Chairman John Kline (R-MN) and Representative Phil Roe, M.D. (R-TN) in requesting a Government Accountability Office (GAO) study on the new school lunch standards that are being implemented for the first time this year. Rep. Noem has been a strong voice in questioning the new school lunch standards, which place calorie-maximums on school meals for students. The Representatives are requesting that the GAO investigate the challenges in implementing the school lunch program, the costs associated with it and what the United States Agriculture Department of (USDA) is doing to assist schools in complying with the standards. The letter also requests that the GAO look into the impact the standards have on food waste. This request is a follow-up to an October 18 letter sent by Representatives Noem, Kline and Roe to USDA Secretary Tom Vilsack requesting additional information on the program. Rep. Noem also sent a letter to Secretary Vilsack regarding the issue on September 13. No responses from the USDA have been received at this point. A GAO study will help determine the on-the-ground impacts of the new standards so Congress can determine the next steps on how to best address the challenges.

Dear Mr. Dodaro: In December 2010, the Healthy, Hunger-Free Kids Act was signed into law, enacting the most comprehensive changes to the National School Lunch Program (NSLP) in more than 15 years. Among the most significant change was a requirement that the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) update nutrition standards for school meal programs. These new requirements, which recently went into effect, impose a calorie minimum and, for the first time, a calorie maximum for school lunches. The rules provide detailed guidance on the types and quantities of foods to be included in meals, such as a daily serving of fruit, a daily serving of vegetables, and weekly requirements as to the types of
vegetables, meats, and whole grain-rich foods served to all students. Since the beginning of the 20122013 school year, state and local officials, parents, and students have raised concerns about a number of these changes, specifically the adequacy of the calorie maximum, the cost of the new requirements, and increased food waste in school cafeterias. Many schools are concerned the requirements limit their flexibility and make it more difficult to adapt their menus to meet the preferences and needs of their students and school communities. In addition, new nutritional standards for the school breakfast program and competitive foods will take effect in the coming years, and school officials already are questioning the potential scope and consequences of these added changes. In light of these concerns, we request GAO prepare a report that addresses the following questions: 1. What challenges have school food service authorities faced in implementing the new school nutrition requirements? In particular, have local authorities had difficulty identifying and purchasing foods that are palatable to students and meet the new standards? Has student participation in school meal programs decreased because of the new school nutrition requirements? Have the school nutrition standards resulted in increased food waste? 2. How have the changes in nutritional standards affected the costs of providing school lunches at the state and local levels? Please examine the potential increase in programmatic, administrative (time, budget, and staffing), and compliance costs. 3. How has the mandatory price increase in paid meals affected the school lunch program? 4. What steps has USDA taken to assist school food authorities in implementing the new requirements, and what additional assistance is needed? We appreciate your assistance in this matter. If you have any questions regarding this request, please contact Mandy Schaumburg (mandy.schaumburg@mail. house.gov) with the committee at 202-225-6558. Sincerely, Rep. John Kline (R-MN) Rep. Kristi Noem (R-SD) Rep. David “Phil” Roe, M.D. (RTN)

The South Dakota Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) is accepting applications for a fifth round of federal grant funds to help South Dakota public schools replace old, high-emitting diesel buses with newer models and retrofit mid-age buses with emission controls. Applications will be accepted from November 2 through December 21. Application forms can be found online at http://denr.sd. gov/des/aq/ aadera.aspx or by calling 605-773-3151. Applications should be sent to the DENR Air Quality Program at the address on the form.
School districts eligible for EPA clean diesel grant funds
The DENR has made 89 funding awards to public school districts totaling about $2.5 million since the EPA Clean Diesel Grant Program started in 2009. The grants have helped districts purchase 62 new buses and 145 exhaust control retrofits. A list of school districts and the amounts received can be seen at http://denr.sd.gov/stimuluscleandieselfunding.aspx and http:// denr.sd.gov/deracleandieselfunding.aspx. The main goal of the program is to reduce school children’s exposure to both fine particulate and smog-forming pollution. The EPA Clean Diesel Program provides grant funds to school districts to help purchase new school buses outfitted with EPAapproved emission controls. The federal share will be about 25 percent of the cost of the new bus. The program also provides grant funds to pay for 100 percent of the cost of installing retrofits to clean up exhaust emissions on mid-age school buses. Eligibility requirements for new school bus purchases under the program include: •Funds cannot be used for replacements that would have occurred through normal attri-
tion/fleet turnover within three years of the project start date •Replaces an existing diesel school bus being used by the school district •Disable or scrap the existing bus within 90 days of receiving the new bus •Receive the new bus by August 1, 2013, and •The new school bus must meet or exceed EPA’s 2010 engine emission standards Eligibility requirements for existing school buses to be retrofitted include: •The bus must have a 1987 to 2006 model year engine •The bus must be in use by the school district, and •The bus must operate on diesel fuel Preference will be given to school districts that have not received a bus replacement during previous funding rounds, districts that also apply for exhaust-control retrofit installation, and buses with oldest model year engine over newer models. School districts may request retrofits for multiple buses.

Despite recent rain and snow, the outlook for reducing South Dakota's drought does not appear promising. “Drought appears to be getting worse rather than better,” says Laura Edwards, South Dakota State University Extension climate field specialist. “We have been hoping for improving our situation this fall, but the state is getting drier instead of wetter.” The latest long-range drought outlook depicts persisting drought into the winter season. This week's U.S. Seasonal Drought Outlook shows the same forecast for most of the surrounding states of North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming, Nebraska, Iowa and southern Minnesota. Because the winter months are generally the driest of the year, Dennis Todey, SDSU state climatologist says it will be difficult to get much drought relief during the winter months, even in a normal year. “We may see some short-term drought relief on and off throughout the winter, but folks should be prepared for this drought to carry into the spring,” Todey says. He adds that last spring’s soil moisture carried the crops in many areas of the state through the first several weeks of drought this year. “South Dakota farmers won’t have the same soil conditions going into the next planting seaDROUGHT LIKELY TO PERSIST IN DAKOTAS

need a medication”. Studies in large populations show less than five percent of the people who make this claim will ever live up to. Specific advice is: “Until the pressure is down and well controlled and on medication, don’t believe that the blood pressure will come down and stay down in response to ‘diet and exercise’ alone.” Myth #4: “The blood pressure in the doctor’s office is accurate and represents what my blood pressure really is”. There have been many studies done showing that blood pressures measured in a doctor’s office are often high secondary to “white coat hypertension”. The best blood pressures to treat and monitor are those in the person’s own environment taken by themself after sitting down for at least two minutes. That pressure should be 140/90 or less preferably 120/80 or less. In an adult, blood pressures less than 100/65 are being over treated and medications should be backed off. Myth #5: “I don’t want to take too many pills”. The real answer is that on average, control of an adult’s blood pressure requires three different medications. It is obviously most convenient when these multiple medications are purchased as a single combination pill, if such is available. But these combination pills are often patented and more expensive. Be that as it may, the basic rule for anyone with a blood pressure of higher than 140/90 needs to start two medications at the same time and then titrate down as needed. Myth #6: “Diuretics are a nuisance because they make a person go to the bathroom too much”. In fact, the two major diuretics that are used to treat high blood pressure are very weak as a diuretic and very potent as an antihypertensive. Somehow in the 1950’s, Park-Davis Pharmaceutical Company promoted a product called hydrochlorathiazide, and through their advertising blitz it became the most prominent diuretic. In fact, the more favorable diuretic to treat hypertension is called chlorthalidone because it lasts longer and is truly a once a day pill. Myth #7: “I will need to take potassium if I have a diuretic”. There is a product called spironolactone that is actually is a potassiumsparing diuretic. Instead of being used as a first line drug, most physi-

before soil temperatures and/or moisture conditions allow the seed to germinate and grow, i.e. in early winter, for growth the following spring. This technique is commonly used for plants like native grasses and forbs. It is less common with grain crops. The reason for considering dormant seeding is to assure early seeding of cool-season crops like spring wheat where it is important to avoid hot weather that occurs when they are planted too late in the spring. It also helps to spread workload. Dormant seeding spring wheat may provide an alternative for growers with large acreages of winter wheat that were not planted in the fall because of dry soil conditions. Dormant seeding spring wheat is not a substitute for planting winter wheat at the proper time when conditions are suitable. It is a viable alternative to a traditional spring wheat seeding program and as a means to keep wheat in the rotation when dry weather precludes winter wheat seeding in the fall. Research at the Dakota Lakes Research Farm has produced the highest yields with winter wheat planted at the recommended time, followed by dormant seeded spring wheat, then spring wheat planted in early spring, closely followed by dormant planted winter wheat. Dormant seeded wheat should always be done with spring wheat, not winter wheat. Winter wheat will most likely vernalize and produce heads the next summer when dormant seeded, but research at Dakota Lakes indicates that dormant seeded winter wheat heads and matures later than spring
Many farmers look forward each year for the various SDSU crop variety trial results. The winter wheat trial results are always the first completed and published in August to help producers make variety decisions. Spring wheat, oats, alfalfa (if applicable), corn, soybeans, sunflowers and flax follow as the plots are harvested and the data compiled. Trial results for 2012, and several years back can be found on iGrow at: http://igrow.org/agronomy/profit-tips/variety-trialresults/. The documents generally include an explanation of test procedures, current and multiyear average of yields, and test weight of each entry. Depending on the crop, additional information is provided, potentially including relative maturity or maturity, lodging rating, stand count, seed traits, origin, grain color, disease resistance, plant variety protection status, height, protein content, area of adaptation, top yield group percentage, oil content and composition, weather data, herbicide resistance, harvest moisture, seed size, and highlights of the trials by the researchers.

MYTHS ABOUT HIGH BLOOD PRESSURE The ability to measure blood pressure in a quick and easy way was not really available until the second half of the 20th century. Eventually, the old mercury manometers that were used in the 1940’s were replaced by pressure gauges and eventually automatic blood pressure recorders. There was a day when blood pressures could only be measured in the hospital or the doctor’s office. Now blood pressures can and should be measured at home by the individual person. In spite of a plethora of ways to measure blood pressures, more than half of the population does not know what their blood pressure is. Of those that do know, only half of them are treated and of those that are treated, only half of them are treated effectively. Thus, high blood pressure still remains a major health problem for the United States. With the understanding that high blood pressure is a major killer in the United States, a host of medications have been developed to treat high blood pressure. It is clearly shown that lowering blood pressure to the 140/90 mmHg or less range is lifesaving. The incidence of heart attacks and especially strokes goes down dramatically as blood pressures are controlled. The problems arise with the methods of controlling blood pressure and the aversion many people have to using medications. Tabulated below is a list of misconceptions that I have seen in many patients over many years. It is these misconceptions that lead to high blood pressure continuing to be such an issue. Myth #1: “I just feel better with my blood pressure a little bit higher”. Indeed some patients do have a change in their well-being sensation when blood pressures are lowered initially. But they will adjust to the lower pressure in time and leaving it high because they “feel better” is a lethal decision. Myth #2: “The salt is not the issue”. In fact, salt is not an issue for most of the general population. But for individuals with high blood pressure, lowering salt in the diet can often be enough to solve the problem. The average American consumes around six to ten grams of salt per day. The American Heart Association recommends lowering that to one and a half grams per day, a value that I find not realistic. But be that as it may, getting the chips, the prepared meats, the sauerkraut and the salt shaker out of a person’s diet make a tremendous difference on blood pressure control Myth #3: “I am going to lose weight and exercise more so I won’t
cians relegate this product third, fourth or fifth choice. In men, there is the problem of breast tenderness that is unpleasant. In women, this is rarely an issue. But rather than use chlorthalidone or hydrochlorothiazide as a basic diuretic, spironolactone is often a much better choice, much more effective and potassium sparing. Myth #8: “I take my pills in the morning”. In fact, there is good data showing that there is a five to ten millimeter blood pressure drop on average for individuals that take their blood pressure medications at night. The reason for this is speculative but the fact that it is better to take the blood pressure pills at night is no longer arguable. Myth #9: “I took my pills yesterday and my blood pressure is still not down today”. On average, the maximum blood pressure effect of any medication requires four to six weeks. Unless there are severe symptoms and problems that need immediate attention, it is best to give a certain blood pressure regimen four to six weeks before needing to adjust. Myth #10: “My blood pressure is just up because I am excited and upset”. Please don’t believe that because you are excited or upset, your blood vessels are going to forgive you for having them exposed to high blood pressure. No matter what your mental state, high blood pressure is intensely detrimental for the integrity and health of your blood vessels. As a closing remark, I have had many patients over the years who come with the challenge that nobody can control my blood pressure. In fact, in all those years I have never had even one patient whose blood pressure could not be controlled, although often with very awkward programs. When blood pressures are extremely difficult to control, one needs to look for secondary causes of high blood pressure. The most common three are alcoholism, sleep apnea and an unusual kind of tumor of the adrenal gland. In those resistant individuals, investigation of these threeproblems can lead to much greater ease of controlling blood pressures. There is no question that blood pressure control in the 120-90 to 140/80 range is well worth the effort.

Do you suffer from anatidaephobia? That is the fear that somewhere, somehow, a duck is always watching you. Actually this is more a made-up fear by humorist Gary Larson in his Far Side comics that an actual one, but probably somewhere, somehow, there is a person who worries about being spied on by ducks. Rationally speaking, there isn’t all that much to be afraid of when it comes to ducks. They seldom go on the attack, and how dangerous can the awkward things be with flat feet and blunt bills? Now geese are a different story. I’ve been bitten on the rear by a gander once or twice, and that can hurt. In other words, keep an eye on geese but don’t fuss that much about ducks. There are a lot of phobias out there, however, that have been classified and are real “excessive, irrational, and persistent fears” as Webster’s dictionary puts it. One of the most common might be acrophobia, which is the fear of heights. Luckily, I don’t have it and could happily climb to the top of the water tower to take aerial pictures of Myrt’s auction sale since she wanted it visually recorded. I did learn that you shouldn’t look up and see clouds floating over since that gives you the nasty feeling that the tower is falling over backwards. Looking down is fine with me but not up.

Lookin’ Around
On the other hand, wife Corinne seldom climbs up over one or two steps on a stepladder. Heights don’t do a thing for her. Even pictures of someone up high give her pause. Neither is it a good idea to hold hands with her while watching a movie where someone is dangling in space or up too high. Seeing such things will make her hands sweat. On the ranch, I found that repairing windmills is not a job for a lot of guys. It makes them really nervous to work on something too far above ground level, if you can even get them to climb up there in the first place. Claustrophobia is another common problem which troubles those who dislike confined spaces. I have a bit of that. Actually, I’m okay in a small space if there is no one else there with me. Neither do I care much for crowds or even sitting on a couch with people on both sides. On the other hand, I certainly don’t suffer from autophobia which is nervousness caused by being alone. I can exist for days or weeks by myself with no problem at all. If you live on a ranch in the middle of nowhere, this is fortunate. It’s too many people that bother me and not too few. Now there are quite a few things that are a danger and need to be watched. Snakes, prairie fires, spiders and bats come to mind. I don’t go into a panic with any of those, but I don’t like them much. I am not so afraid of snakes, though, that I can’t run and find a hoe or other implement to remove their heads. Nevertheless, I don’t run through tall grass or pick up a log without kicking it first. This habit came in very handy indeed one day when I went to pick up a stump that was supporting the tongue of a hay rake. I kicked it over only to find a rattlesnake below it. The thought of putting my fingers under there without looking strongly reinforced my habit of kicking or shifting first and picking up second. The same applies to feed sacks on the floor where spiders and other crawly things like to hide. I do come down with a bit of ablutophobia in the winter which has to do with bathing or washing. The reason is acarophobia which is about itching. If I bathe every day, I also itch every day. Washing up is fine, but daily showers are not. This is only a problem in cold weather and not warm. Neither do I suffer from ataxophobia which is fear of disorder or untidiness. Ask Corinne if you don’t believe me. She has a bit of that condition but has learned to put up with my messes without too much distress. Finally we come to luposlipaphobia which is the fear of being pursued by timber wolves around a kitchen table while wearing socks on a newly waxed floor. As you might guess, this is another humorist’s invention. Socks on a newly waxed floor are actually kind of fun since you can take a run and slide across until your mother tells you to quit. The timber-wolf part not so much. Actually, I am basically saved from excessive fear by trusting in my heavenly father. He looks after me and keeps me out of trouble as he promises to do and has done repeatedly. He says not to worry about anything but to pray about everything. I try to do that and highly recommend it. Being a fraidy cat isn’t much fun. I can live without it.

Attorney General Marty Jackley warns South Dakotans to be on guard for unscrupulous scammers looking for donations to help the victims in the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy. Sadly, this is typical behavior we see from scam artists after there has been a disaster of this proportion. One of the most common traits the scammers will use is high pressure sales tactics, so again, be on guard. “Unfortunately, the generosity of South Dakotans makes us targets of many unscrupulous individuals during this recovery time,” said Jackley. “Those who simply want to help must proceed with caution when choosing a charity or answering email messages asking for assistance.”
Attorney General Jackley warns consumers about Hurricane Sandy relief scams
Here are a few tips to avoid becoming a victim: •Verify the legitimacy of the nonprofit organization as well as its nonprofit status. Visit such sites as www.charitynavigator.org or www.guidestar.org. •Ask specifically how this donation will be used. •Consider giving to charitable organizations with a strong history in providing disaster relief. •Beware of charitable organizations that use sound alike names of legitimate companies. •Donors should not respond to any unsolicited emails or text messages, but rather go directly to recognized charities or aid organizations.
•Do not pay cash. For security reasons write a check. If you are asked to make the check payable to a person, be wary. •If you are promised a prize in exchange for your donation, you should err on the side of caution. •If you want additional information about the charity, ask that they send it to you in writing. Any legitimate company will be more than happy to provide this information to verify their legitimacy. For more information about charitable giving, contact the South Dakota Attorney General’s Consumer Protection Division at 1-800-300-1986 or consumerhelp@state.sd.us.

Senator Thune’s office accepting spring internship applications
U.S. Senator John Thune (RS.D.) is currently seeking hardworking college students to serve as interns in his office in Washington, D.C., as well as in his offices in Aberdeen, Rapid City, and Sioux Falls. Interns in Thune’s state offices will participate in constituent service and state outreach activities, while students in the Washington, D.C. office will have the opportunity to witness the legislative process, give Capitol tours, and attend Senate votes and hearings. Both in-state and Washington, D.C. internships will allow students to work closely with constituents, hone their research and writing skills, and learn a multitude of valuable office skills. “Interning in a Senate office provides students with a front row view of democracy in action and can serve for many as an excellent introduction to public service,” said Thune. “I encourage all inter-

by Senator John Thune Battles fought in wars around the world, both past and present, have been depicted for many Americans through the lens of a camera. Behind the triumphs and the sadness of the photographs, are the men and women who have so valiantly honored the call to duty in defense of freedom. These men and women, some of whom made the ultimate sacrifice, have protected our nation from foreign and domestic threats, and fought in the name of liberty all over the world. This September, I had the great opportunity to help welcome home the 842nd Engineer Company of the South Dakota National Guard. The 160 men and women of the Spearfish, Belle Fourche, and Sturgis-based unit represent some of the best that both South Dakota and our nation have to offer. These servicemen and women, like so many before them, honored the call to duty and selflessly put the welfare of our nation before their own personal needs. This Veterans Day we pause to thank and pay tribute to the veterans and active members of the military who have risked life and limb protecting our freedoms. South Dakota veterans, young and old, connect us to the past and present
Honoring defenders of liberty
struggles for freedom and peace. Their honor, duty, and patriotism make us proud to call them family, friends, and neighbors, and we honor the memory of those who have fallen, keeping all who serve in our prayers. While we honor our veterans sacrifice, we are also aware of the continued struggles for many of the men and women in the military who have returned home from tours of duty. As the son of a World War II veteran, I believe we have an important responsibility to care for our veterans who have sacrificed so much for our freedom. I am a strong supporter of programs that benefit our veterans and believe more can be done in terms of enacting pro-growth policies to address the needs that veterans have during this exceptionally difficult period of slow economic growth. I will continue to work across the aisle to come up with viable solutions to stimulate growth, boost job creation in the private sector, and assist those who have given so much to their country. I invite all South Dakotans to join me in honoring the sacrifice of our veterans and to keep the brave members of our military and their families in our thoughts and prayers as they continue to serve on our behalf.

Thanking our military families
by Rep. Kristi Noem Like all Americans, South Dakotans hold the members of our military in high esteem. From the airmen at Ellsworth Air Force Base to the men and women with our National Guard, these patriots have earned our unwavering gratitude. So too, have the families that support them. The month of November is Military Family Month, where we give special recognition to the men and women behind the uniform. While America’s service men and women are deployed around the world, their wives, husbands, parents and siblings are back on the home front; praying for their safety, caring for children and going the extra mile. Military families demonstrate sacrifice in so many ways. They move from base to base and town to town. Husbands and wives give up precious time with their spouses and children. And they all do it because they love our country and find the sacrifice a small price to pay in
0025. To apply for a Washington, DC legislative or press internship during the spring term or beyond, interested students should submit a cover letter, resume, references, and a writing sample to: General Internship, Senator Tim Johnson, Attn: Intern Coordinator, 136 Hart SOB, Washington, D.C., 20510 or by fax to: 202-228-7575 or Intern by email to: Coordinator@johnson. senate.gov; Press Internship, Senator Tim Johnson, Attn: Kate Cichy, Press Intern Coordinator, 136 Hart SOB, Washington, D.C., 20510 or by fax to: 202-228-7575 or by email to: Kate Cichy@johnson.senate.gov.

exchange for the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. One of the most special things for a military family is when they get to be reunited. I was honored to help welcome home South Dakota Army National Guard’s 842nd Engineer Company recently. Seeing husbands and wives rush to one another and children overjoyed to see their mother or father was incredibly heartwarming. It was a reminder of how resilient these military families are, and what a significant role they play in our nation’s fabric. America remains the greatest nation in the world because of the men and women that wake up every day committed to defend it. While we honor our courageous service members, let us also take special care to honor the families that support them. This month, I hope all South Dakotans will take a moment to thank a military family member for the sacrifices they make for our country.
