National Newspaper week interests children
by Tami Jo Newbold-Flynn
October 6-12 was National
Newspaper week. Ravellette Pub-
lications, owner of the Murdo
Coyote, celebrated this by print-
ing 100 extra copies of the news-
paper for grades first through
eighth.
The students and teachers of
the Jones County school were
very happy to have someone come
talk about their local newspaper
and to celebrate newspaper week
in general. Both students and
teachers had many interesting
questions.
A question was asked about the
letters to the editor policy, which
you can find the answer to in the
bottom left hand corner on page
two. Many questions were asked
about how and why we pick sto-
ries and pictures for the paper.
Mostly the younger grades were
excited to see pictures of all the
homecoming floats and the
mighty coyote and coyote charac-
ter award winners.
The magnitude of the paper
left one girl so impressed that she
informed us that she now knows
why her dad takes so long in the
bathroom.
The seventh grade was espe-
cially interested in the workings
of the newspaper and they asked
questions about styles of writing,
length of articles, templates used
and advertising.
The papers that were brought
to the school had the Coyote Call
in them, so every class and I dis-
cussed how the Murdo Coyote is
unique in the fact that high
school students write articles
about what is going on in the
school for a newspaper that gets
published professionally and gets
read by not only a majority of the
community, but also by many
subscribers in other towns and
states.
Seiney Moore and Jaelyn Green study the Murdo Coyote.
Bridger Hight, Blaine Hauptman and the other fourth
graders look over the paper.
The third grade class enjoys look-
ing at the Murdo Coyote, Wednes-
day, October 9, during National
Newspaper week.
Teresa Palmer explains the paper to one of her
second graders.
Tami Newbold-Flynn explains how
Lonna Jackson might create an ad.
Emmy Newsam and other first graders read and circle pictures from the
paper.

Ravellette Publications
A Company History
Ravellette Publications, Inc.
was formed in 1978 and that
same year The Pennington Coun-
ty Courant in Wall, S.D., was pur-
chased. In 1983, Ravellette Publi-
cations, Inc. started The Profit,
an advertiser with total market
coverage. Soon after MacIntosh
computers came into play.
Don, present publisher, moved
into a management role in 1986.
In 1989, Ravellette Publications,
Inc. purchased The Kadoka Press
in Kadoka, S.D. This purchase
brought Ravellette Publications,
Inc. to a total of four weekly pub-
lications.
In 1997, The Faith Independ-
ent in Faith, S.D., was added to
the newspaper group. The Bison
Courier in Bison, S.D., was pur-
chased in 1999.
In 2000, The Murdo Coyote in
Murdo, S.D., was added to the
Ravellette Publications, Inc.
newspaper group.
In 2003, the company moved
the Philip office to a remodeled
building which also houses their
Goss web newspaper press, which
allowed us to print our own news-
papers.
At this time, and imagesetter
was also purchased, enabling
completely computer generated
newspapers and job printing to be
sent via the internet to our cen-
tral printing plant in Phillip. All
layout is done on computers and
goes straight to negative form
through this process. During this
time, a website was also estab-
lished for the Pioneer Review and
RPI Promotions. In 2012, all
newspapers, except The New
Underwood Post, were added to a
general site- RavellettePublica-
tions.com- as a subscriber only
site.
The New Underwood Post was
established in 2004 by the Ravel-
lette Publications, Inc. group,
bringing the total to eight weekly
publications printed in Philip.
Murdo City Council discusses many issues in meeting
by Tami Jo Newbold-Flynn
The Murdo city council mem-
bers met October 7. After the
meeting was called to order and
the agenda was approved, the
council listened to Alissa Van-
Meeteren, a business develop-
ment representative, speak.
VanMeeteren is a state repre-
sentative from the Governor’s
Office of Economic Development
and has Murdo in her region. She
told the council that she has three
main responsibilities: recruit out
of state business, expand estab-
lished businesses, and marketing
communities and the work they
do in them.
VanMeeteren said she can be a
resource for the community and
just wants a chance to help our
community. She can’t be the one
to make contact with a business
and she can’t tell businesses
where to go, but if someone else
was to make contact and get a
positive response then they
should inform her about it and
she can call that business and fol-
low up.
Discussions were had about
what business would be a good fit
in the community; anything in
the shooting and outdoor indus-
try, ammunition based compa-
nies, and a shooting range were
included in the discussion, as
were nursing homes or wind tow-
ers.
Some concerns were voiced
about the GOED being hard to
work with. VanMeeteren apolo-
gized for any negative experi-
ences the council may have had in
the past and assured them that
she is willing to really try and
help the community. She also
stressed that she is at our ‘beck
and call’ and only a phone call or
email away.
The council recognized that she
was the first person in her posi-
tion or from the GOED that has
showed enough interest in Murdo
to make it to a city council meet-
ing, which was encouraging.
Building permits were issued:
•Jay Keever
•Patrick Barnes
•Lonna Jackson
•Steven O’Dell
•David Geisler
•Terry Van Dam
The vouchers were approved,
as was the street report, given by
Jerry Hatheway, and the written
Sheriff ’s report which was sub-
mitted earlier. Ray Erikson was
gone so a water report was not
given. Krysti Barnes then went
through the finance report which
was approved.
The city council held a hay auc-
tion for hay that was cut at the
North Dam. Those in attendance
for that were: Mike Barnes, Craig
McKenzie and Bob Kinsley. After
a few rounds of bidding, Mike
Barnes’ winning bid was 60 dol-
lars a ton and he purchased about
1250 tons or around 140 bales.
Charlie Buxcel was next on the
agenda. Buxcel had a lengthy dis-
cussion with the council members
about the condition of a mobile
home in his court. The council is
concerned with many things
going on in the trailer court, but
mainly that the court in general
is bringing down property values
of neighboring homes. Buxcel told
the council that he would start on
fixing some of the problems with
the trailers as money came in, but
that the worst trailer would
receive some attention this
month after things dried up.
The council discussed a code
enforcement officer, which had
been brought up in past meet-
ings. Information was shared
about what Krysti and different
members had found out about the
subject. New questions on the
subject were talked about and it
was decided that a joint meeting
between the county commission-
ers, the city council, the sheriff
and sheriff ’s deputy was needed.
The only new business was dis-
cussions about the airport. Murdo
Municipal Airport has put in for a
grant that would help supply
funding for improvements for the
airport. It is only in the beginning
stages of this process and much
more needs to be done.
Murdo city council then went
into executive session to discuss
legal matters.
I would like to thank the
teachers and students along
with Mr. Vander Vorst and
Mrs. Esmay for letting me
come into the school
and talk about
National Newspaper Week.
It was a lot of fun
and the students had
great questions!

The Triumph Of Faith
by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
“This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith” (I John 5:4).
There are many who look upon faith as an abstract sort of thing. Some suppose faith is merely looking on the bright side of things; to others it is will-
power; still others confuse it with a person’s view-point.
In the Bible, faith is simply believing God. “Faith” is the noun and “believe” the verb. This is seen in Rom. 4:5, where the Apostle Paul declares:
“To him that worketh not but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, his faith is counted for righteousness.”
The above passage from I John 5 also makes this plain, when seen in its context:
“This is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.
“Who is he that overcometh the world but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God” (Vers. 4,5).
It is, then, the believer in Christ, and only the believer in Christ, who can overcome the world. Unbelievers are swept away by the attractions and the
pretentions of this world- system, but the believer in Christ need not be.
St. Paul declared by divine inspiration that unbelievers follow “the course of this world,” directed by Satan, “the spirit that now worketh in the children
of disobedience” (Eph. 2:2).
We do not mean to imply that believers are not often tempted to follow “the course of this world.” Indeed the world would sometimes entice or intim-
idate us, but “this is the victory that overcometh the world, even our faith.”
Two minutes with the bible
Only in the Bible is light to be
found on the problem of human
suffering. Only the GOD of the
Bible is able to bring true comfort
to the sorrowing.
CHRIST brought light into the
world. When HE began HIS min-
istry an ancient prophecy was
fulfilled, “The people who sat in
darkness saw great light; and to
them who sat in the region and
shadow of death light is sprung
up” (Matthew 4:16).
In the darkness of affliction
“unto the upright there arises
light in the darkness” (Psalm
112:4). After many days of trou-
ble from which the LORD at last
delivered him, David wrote the
beautiful prayer, “YOU are my
lamp, O LORD: and the LORD
will lighten my darkness” (II
Samuel 22:29). It is through HIS
Word that the LORD gives light
to HIS people. “The entrance of
YOUR Words gives light; it gives
understanding to the simple”
(Psalm 119:130).
It is a wonderful thing to find
expressed in the Bible our own
sorrowful experience when we
feel that we are forsaken in some
dark hour of trial. “Who is among
you that fears the LORD, that
obeys the voice of his servant,
that walks in darkness, and has
no light? Let him trust in the
Name of the LORD, and stay
upon his GOD” (Isaiah 50:10).
If this describes us in our pres-
ent condition, it also gives us
plain instructions as to what we
should do. We fear GOD and live
in obedience to HIS SON. When
temporary darkness overshad-
ows us, we need only to keep on
trusting HIM. HE will give us
light.
If we think sometimes our
experiences are so grievous that
it is almost as though we had
been cast into a fiery furnace like
the three Hebrew young men in
Babylon, we are on solid scriptur-
al ground. A number of Bible
texts liken the trials of a life well
pleasing in GOD’s sight to a fur-
nace of affliction. It was in such a
furnace that GOD chose Israel,
and through such a furnace we
all must pass on our way to glory.
The New Testament speaks of
the “trial of your faith, being
much more precious that of gold
that perishes, though it be tried
with fire.” It refers also to “the
fiery trial which is to try you” (I
Peter 1:7; 4:12). These startling
figures have their roots in the
Old Testament.
For example, Proverbs 17:3,
“The fining pot is for silver, and
the furnace for gold: but the
LORD tries the hearts.” Our
hearts need Divine discipline.
Faith must be tested to show its
genuineness. Like the people of
Israel we need to be refined. We
need refining so that we may be
purified. To these texts may be
added one more, “Wherefore glo-
rify the LORD in the fires” (Isa-
iah 24:15).
If our furnace of affliction
seems almost more than we can
bear, we must remember that we
too will be brought forth from it
some day. In the meantime, we
can pray, “Search me, O GOD,
and know my heart: try me, and
know my thoughts: and see if
there is any wicked way in me,
and lead me in the way everlast-
ing” (Psalm 139:23-24).

Once again the third grade class received dictionaries. This is something that the Barrett Dowling Legion Auxil-
iary Post 301 does every year for the third grade class. The third grade teacher Jeanette Drayer thinks the dic-
tionaries are wonderful and that the dictionaries have more than just definitions of words. These dictionaries also
have maps, planets, sign language and other useful and neat information like the longest word in the English lan-
guage, which is 1,909 letters long. Lila Mae Christian and Lillian Seamans handed out the dictionaries for the
Auxiliary.

Nursing degree in store for Kaylen Larsen as graduation appears closer than ever
By Mikayla Waldron
Volleyball, Jazz choir, NHS,
hunting, and shopping are among
some of Kaylen’s favorite activi-
ties. Kaylen Annretta Larsen
most admires her mom because
“She was a strong, courageous
woman with a huge heart.”
Kaylen is the daughter of Barb
Baker and Brad Larsen and half-
sister to Lacey Napton, Brooklyn
Larsen, Taeanna Larsen and
Clayton Larsen.
She enjoys being with friends,
helping people and biology class.
She is often dressed in pink and
zebra print clothing and acces-
sorizing with almost every color
and kind of hair flower. “You’ll be
There” by George Strait is her
favorite song probably because he
was the favorite artist of both her
and her mother. If she could meet
any famous person, it would be
Strait.
She doesn’t really have a
favorite food but if she had to pick
it might be Chinese. The movie
UP brings her tears and laughter,
and it takes the cake as her
favorite movie. Easter takes top
honors as her favorite holiday
because of all the candy it brings
and when she was little, she
would upset Logan by beating
him at Easter egg hunts.
When considering being popu-
lar, accomplishing something or
being organized, she said, “I’d
rather accomplish something for
myself. I want to have something
that shows what I have worked
for, and I want people to look up
to me.” If there is one thing
Kaylen would want to be, it would
be important.
Her biggest fear is losing some-
one close to her, and the biggest
lesson she has learned from life is
“Don’t ever take anything for
granted because you never know
what tomorrow will bring.” She
most values family and things
that she got from her mom who
passed away the summer before
Kaylen’s sophomore year. Barb
had breast cancer for 12 years
and this encouraged Kaylen to
take an active role in funding and
raising awareness of the fight
against cancer.
Being able to still be a kid is
the thing Kaylen will miss most
about high school. “I’m nervous to
be off on my own, but I believe I
can handle it.” The advice she
would give to underclassmen is to
“Enjoy life while you can, it goes
faster than you think. Work hard
for things you want because the
harder you work now, the more
you will get out of it later. It is a
lot harder to climb out of a hole
than to jump down into one.”
Her favorite memories of high
school are Olympics during home-
coming week, and just being with
friends. The thought that she is
almost an adult is the best thing
about being a senior in her view.
Kaylen will be attending Presen-
tation College in Aberdeen to
acquire her Bachelor’s Degree in
Nursing. She wants to pursue a
career in nursing for various rea-
sons. She enjoys working with
and helping people. Kaylen has
wanted to be a nurse ever since
she was young because she has
always looked up to them. She
doesn’t know exactly where she
will be in 10 years, but she hopes
to be happy and doing something
where people appreciate and look
up to her.
Students enjoy scrubs camp in Chamberlain
New benches supply lasting remembrance from class of 2013
by Skylar Green
Seven high school students
attended Scrubs Camp in Cham-
berlain on September 25 along
with sponsor Lea Glaze. Sopho-
mores Julie Joseph, Alexis
Hullinger, Tana Volmer, Garline
Boni, Melyssa Manecke and Tris-
tan Grablander all participated
in the fun-filled activities along
with junior Allison Green. They
had a schedule of classes that
included: Pharmacy, Surgical
Team, RT/Nursing, EMS and
Advanced Practice Providers.
The majority of the students
chose surgery class as their
favorite activity. Before they got
started with the surgery activity,
the people helping them told the
class about the garbs they have to
put on and how to put them on.
“We had to wear a surgery gown,
put on gloves, and wear a hair
net. I felt pretty cool in the sur-
geon’s clothes,” said Garline Boni.
They all got a pig’s leg, which had
a slit in it, and they had to stitch
it up. “It was pretty fun,” said
Tana Volmer.
The least favorite parts of the
day were the nursing and lab
activity. During the lab activity,
the students tested their blood
types. “I liked the lab because it
was interesting finding out what
kind of blood we have. I was
scared to have my finger poked at
first, but it just hurt for a second,”
said Tana Volmer. The pharmacy
class was practical because the
group made lip balm which they
could also flavor.
Alexis Hullinger enjoyed the
EMS class because they brought
in a mannequin that cost $70,000.
It did a lot of cool things such as:
blink, breathe, talk, cry and even

medical profession when they attended camp in Chamberlain along with
sponsor Lea Glaze.
sweat. The mannequin could
have wounds attached in differ-
ent places and clear liquids could
come out of the body.
Another practical lesson came
when they all learned how to put
splints on and actually tried it on
people during the Advanced Prac-
tice Providers class. Melyssa and
Tana practiced putting a splint on
Garline. Overall the students
enjoyed themselves and learned a
lot of interesting facts.
River Bowl trophy rests in JC trophy case
by Skyler Miller
Every year a tradition is car-
ried on by the Coyotes and the
White River Tigers, the River
Bowl. The River Bowl is the
“cross-river” rivalry between
White River and Jones County
during football. The rivalry con-
tinues with other sports, but
there is now a traveling trophy
for the football teams.
Originally started three years
ago, the River Bowl trophy was
created by White River to signify
who won between the two rivals.
After Jones County beat White
River for their homecoming, the
trophy mysteriously disappeared,
Cross country starts with strong team
by Skylar Green
Cross Country welcomed three
new runners for the season: sixth
grader Breckin Steilen, seventh
grader Austin Olson and sopho-
more Calli Glaze. Eighth grader
Molly Dowling, juniors Kalli
Hespe and Rachel Buxcel, and
senior Skylar Green are back for
cross country. They came in
fourth place as a team at their
first meet in Winner on August
30. Austin Olson ran in the junior
varsity division and took first
place. Rachel Buxcel took third,
Kalli Hespe twelfth, Skylar
Green fourteenth and Molly
Dowling sixteenth out of twenty
varsity runners. Calli Glaze was
unable to finish the race because
of a sharp pain in her side.
The team participated in the
White River Prestige Run on
Monday, August 9. Brecken
Steilen got sixteenth place in the
elementary/middle school divi-
sion. Olson took fourth in the JV
boys division with a time of 16:43.
Buxcel ran a 16:00 and placed
fourth. Green ran a 17:48 and
placed eleventh. Varsity got
medals and t-shirts while JV/ele-
mentary got ribbons. Hespe and
Glaze did not run because they
quit two weeks into the season.

Ladies continue successful volleyball season in regular/tourney play
by Kaylen Larsen
On the road again, the Lady
Coyotes met the Philip Scotties
for another win. The girls had a
tough time keeping their momen-
tum up. The game started off
with a setback since Mikayla
Waldron was unable to play due
to injuries. Skylar Green started
unexpectedly, but everything
worked out for the Coyotes. They
won with scores of (25-11) (26-24)
(24-26) (12-25) (16-14) Aces:
Madison (6) Skylar (5) Calli (3)

The next matchup was against
the Colome Cowgirls. This was a
good game for the Coyotes after
they had time to practice the new
starting lineup. The girls won:
(25-15) (25-19) (25-15) Aces: Gar-

Once again the girls found
themselves on the road to Philip.
This event didn’t turnout as well.
After a long day, the girls came
home with 5th place, losing to the
Scotties right away with scores of
(25-21) (13-25) (21-25). The girls
then beat the Tigers (26-24) (25-
20). Next the girls beat the
Onida/Sully Buttes Chargers (25-
18) (20-25) (25-14). This was the
end of the pool play.
The bracket placed the girls
against the Kadoka Area Kougars
for a win (25-16) (25-18). Harding
County played a tough game, but
the girls came out with victory
(22-25) (25-22) (29-27). Madison
Mathews was announced as All-
Tourney.
After a short bus ride, the girls
found themselves facing the
White River Tigers. The Coyotes
didn’t have much trouble win-
ning. “It’s always nice beating
them, especially in 3!” says senior
Skylar Green. Mikayla was able
to play again after some physical
therapy. The first set was a little
nerve-wracking, but after that
the girls played their game (25-
23) (25-13) (25-18) Aces: Kalli (3)

The game against the Lady Buf-
falos was very upsetting. Madison
Mathews decided not to play so
she could give her wrist a break
and not cause more harm. Some
disagreements on calls caused the
team a little anger. Unfortunate-
ly, the Coyotes received their first
loss this night (22-25) (18-25) (25-
11) (25-10) (17-19). Aces: Kalli (6)

When the 2013 class faced
decisions at the end of the year,
one was “What do we do with the
left over funds we have in the
treasury?” After discussion on
several occasions, the one domi-
nant wish was that their gift
would not just get lost. After hav-
ing looked at the broken benches
in the front of the school for sev-
eral months, the class decided
that they would like to replace
the old benches with two new
ones. Several of the seniors
researched sites on the Internet
and found the kind they liked--
metal that would be anchored
into the ground and that had
2013 on the bench back. Wyatt
Hespe filled out the purchase
order, did the pricing and turned
it into the office. In the mean-
time, the new janitorial staff
repaired the benches in the front
of the school which led to the two
new benches being installed fac-
ing the old benches. Students in
Jody Gittings shop class dug the
holes and put the new benches
into place.
The eight foot long benches
originally were ordered to be one
orange and the other blue, but the
shop class thought they looked
better with one orange and one
blue part to each bench. They
were right and the benches make
a good addition to the seating on
the warm autumn and spring
days when students have a few
minutes during the noon hour to
get some fresh air.

With a muddy, Monday night
game, the Coyotes lost to the
Stanley County Buffalos. Both
teams were sliding around
through the whole game, but
eventually the Buffalos caught
some grip early against the Coy-
otes. Coach Sealey said, “We did-
n’t come out with the fire we
needed to in the first half, but in
the second half we stepped up our
game.” The Coyotes fought back
from a deficit, sparked by Dalton
Kinsley’s 80 yard kick return, but
couldn’t overtake the Buffalos.
The final score was 20-41.
On offense, Skyler Miller led the
Coyotes with 94 yards rushing,
Chad Johnson had 60 yards and
two touchdowns while Dylan
Kinsley and Wyatt Weber both
recorded 25 yards. Connor
Venard led in receiving with 45
yards, with Hight, Weber and
Miller providing the other 19
yards to give quarterback Dylan
Kinsley 64 yards passing.
Venard led the team with 15
tackles while Miller and Johnson
both had 12 and Wyatt Weber 9.
Against the Philip Scotties the
Coyotes lost in a hard-hitting
matchup. The defense was ready
to hit, but so were the Scotties.
The Scotties grabbed a quick lead
and never looked back. The final
score was 32-6.
On offense, Weber led the Coy-
otes with 74 yards rushing and
the only touchdown, Miller pro-
vided an additional 48 yards, and
Johnson and Kinsley and Kinsley
also contributed 26 yards togeth-
er.
Miller with 20 tackles, Cody
Manke added 18,Wyatt Weber 16
and Miller, John King, Johnson
and Dalton Kinsley all had fum-
ble recoveries.
The Coyotes have two more
games against the Lyman
Raiders and the New Underwood
Tigers. The team’s goal is to con-
tinue improving and get the wins
to end the season with high spir-
its.

pected way. Thirdly, it is possible
he is leading me towards some
changes that I might not even
know I need, but he does. What-
ever his purposes, I trust him
completely and will try to follow
his leading.
With the idea of providing what
we need in an unexpected way,
that has happened many times in
the past. I recall one year when
cattle prices were down, crops
were almost non-existent, and
cash was running out. Low and
behold, an oil company came by
and wanted to lease our land for
oil exploration. They never found
any oil that I know of, but their
lease payments were certainly
put to very good use. Another
time when I was scratching my
head wondering how to get by, a
dear uncle and aunt remembered
me generously in their will. That
money also came at a time when
it was badly needed. As you can
see, God can provide for us in
many ways if we just trust him
and wait for him to act. As I have
said before and again recently,
“God will provide.”
As far as changes go in my life,
I am no longer exactly a young
thing. I’m not completely ancient
either, but the bloom of youth has
somewhat worn off. Since I am
not fond of change, I tend to
resist altering what I do and how
I go about it. God may be telling
me the time has come to make
some changes. If that is his pur-
pose, he will no doubt make it
clearer as time goes along.
So, for now it’s kind of a waiting
game. We need to wait a bit, see
how things go, and figure out
what we need to do next. Mean-
while, to keep myself from fret-
ting and getting into a fuss, I will
try to constantly remember
another favorite verse of mine
which says, “Worry about noth-
ing. Pray about everything.”
That works for me, and I hope it
will for you too if your life is not
exactly running smoothly at the
moment. God does love us, he
takes care of us, and he will pro-
vide what we need. Count on it.
David writes in Psalm 27:14,
“Wait patiently for the Lord. Be
strong and courageous. Yes, wait
patiently for the Lord.” That is
excellent advice. Blessed be the
name of the Lord.
What do you do when an early
October blizzard kills 54 of your
calves and 14 of your cows as it
did to us last week? Do you
pound your chest and wail? Do
you slam doors and kick dogs?
Do you sink into a deep dark
depression? Well no. Those
things don’t do much good. What
you do is say with Job, “The Lord
gives, and the Lord takes away.
Blessed be the name of the Lord.”
Then you go on from there, figur-
ing out what to do next.
First you have to get over the
shock of it all. Who expects a bliz-
zard that early, and why did it
kill so many cattle in the area?
The why is explained somewhat
by the cattle not having yet
grown their winter coats and not
being used to cold weather. It has
just barely frozen so far this fall.
Then there were inches of cold
rain followed by strong wind and
some snow. The temperature
wasn’t all that severe since it was
barely at the freezing point, but
the wet and wind, combined with
short hair, were enough to chill
livestock beyond bearing.
Then, too, the cattle weren’t yet
in their winter pastures. Our
ranch has pretty good protection
all over since part of it is in river
breaks and part along a deep
creek. It is not like our critters
are usually on a big flat plain
with no protection in sight. We
have lucked out many times in
past years just because of our
rugged terrain. It probably
helped some this time around as
well, but it didn’t keep us from
losses. If we’d had our cows and
calves in winter quarters, they
might have been able to avoid
more of the wind, but there is no
guarantee that would have done
the trick either. So what next?
First off, one has to say that
God allowed us to suffer this loss.
He might not have caused it, but
he certainly allowed it. Since I
harbor no doubts about God’s
love for me, that means there
was a purpose behind how the
whole affair worked itself out.
Two or three things come to
mind. Certainly, God wants me to
learn to trust him in every situa-
tion, and I try to do that. I might
be just getting another lesson.
Secondly, he may be planning to
provide for our needs in an unex-

The junior high boys would have ended their 2013 football season at
another game in Philip on October 14, but the game was canceled due to
wind and rain.
The Jones County junior high boys offensive line gets ready to snap the
ball against one of two Philip teams. The boys played at a jamboree in
Philip on Saturday, October 12. They beat one of Philip’s teams but lost to
the other one. They also lost to Stanley County.
Molly Dowling sets the ball to Emily Flynn and Katy Manke at the triangu-

Murdo Coyote • October 17, 2013 • 6
Producers continue to harvest
hay to replace the deficit caused
by the 2012 drought. The man-
agement challenge when harvest-
ing hay in the fall is getting the
crop dry enough to safely bale
with shorter days and cooler tem-
peratures. Fall is also the time of
year when the larger stemmed
forages such as forage sorghum,
sudangrass and sorghum-sudan
crosses are harvested, and the
thicker stems take more time to
dry than finer stemmed crops.
Hay that is baled too wet is in
danger of getting hot enough to
start on fire, or at the least, losing
much of its feed value.
The recommended moisture
content for small square bales is
20 percent or lower, whereas
large round or rectangular bales
should be made at 18 percent or
less and some references suggest
no more than 16 percent. Hay
preservatives can allow baling at
higher moisture content, but add
cost to the equipment, add cost
for the product, and can be corro-
sive. There is also a limit of how
high the moisture content can be
and still safely bale hay.
It is normal for temperatures to
rise in freshly baled forages due
to plant respiration and natural
microbial activity. If forage mois-
ture levels are too high, however,
the combination of heat and mois-
ture provide an ideal environ-
ment for excessive growth of bac-
teria that are naturally present
on these crops. The respiration of
these bacteria can cause the tem-
peratures to rise to dangerous
levels.
The moisture content of forages
can be determined with either a
forage moisture tester, or by
using an accurate scale and a
microwave oven. If using a forage
moisture tester, comparing the
results of several tests with the
results of using the scale and
microwave oven would be much
safer and provide confidence in
the results. This may be particu-
larly important when determin-
ing the moisture content of large
stemmed forages, as the large
stems may cause erroneous read-
ings.
To determine the moisture con-
tent of forages using a scale and
microwave oven, gather and
weigh a representative sample of
whole plant material. Heat the
forage with a cup of cool water in
a microwave oven for a few min-
utes at a time until the weight
doesn’t change. The moisture con-
tent can be determined with the
formula: % moisture = (initial
weight – final weight) X 100/ini-
tial weight.
Once forages are baled, it is
advised to leave them scattered
in the field for at least three
weeks before stacking. By that
time, the temperature of the hay
should rise slightly and gradually
return to the ambient (air) tem-
perature. Heat can also escape
from individual bales much more
readily than if the bales are
stacked, and if one or more bales
are heating excessively, you’re not
endangering the whole stack to
the danger of fire.
If the moisture content was bor-
derline or questionable at the
time of baling, the temperature
should be monitored, particularly
before stacking. If temperatures
rise to no more than 120 degrees
F, no loss of feed value should
occur and no action is needed. If
temperatures rise to between
120-130 degrees F, some loss of
feed value can be expected, and
temperatures should be moni-
tored daily. At 140 degrees F, sig-
nificant feed value can be lost and
one should consider taking stacks
apart. If temperatures rise to 150
degrees F or higher, significant
loss of feed value is certain, and
fire is likely.

Fall hay harvest
The lady was 76-years old and
came to the clinic reluctantly
because her family insisted. She
would kindly be described as
“high strung.” She had never
been to the clinic before and
began the interview by complain-
ing about how many forms she
had to fill out and “was this all
really necessary.”
After the initial niceties, we
got down to the medical problem
and she gave the best medical
description that I have ever heard
about a condition called amauro-
sis fugax. This is a medical syn-
drome in which the person loses
vision in one eye briefly and then
recovers without any residual.
She described her story as below:
“I was driving to work on a
bright sunny morning when I felt
a strange click-like sensation in
my left eye. Within seconds, I lost
the vision in that eye. My right
eye was fine. For lack of anything
I could do, I just kept driving. By
the time I got to work, my vision
was completely recovered and
there was nothing else wrong. I
didn’t have a headache, nothing
hurt, I didn’t lose consciousness
or felt like I would. This occurred
two days ago and I feel fine. Noth-
ing else has happened. Do I need
to worry about this?”
I proceeded to take a detailed
history and do a complete physi-
cal examination. Her history was
pertinent for a pack per day ciga-
rette abuse, a blood pressure of
160/100 and a cholesterol level of
285 milligram percent with a bad
cholesterol (LDL) of 210 mil-
ligrams percent. I referred her to
an optometrist for detailed eye
examination and he quickly
called back saying that she had
three Hollenhorst plaques in her
left eye.
A Hollenhorst plaque is a tiny
crystal of cholesterol that origi-
nates someplace in the large
blood vessels of the body and then
is carried into smaller and small-
er blood vessels until it finally
encounters one that it can’t go
through. It then blocks that
artery and the tissue downstream
from that block does not get
enough blood and doesn’t func-
tion. In the case of her left eye,
she had a crystal of cholesterol
block the central retinal artery
and then over minutes of time
break into several smaller crys-
tals that went out into the small-
er vessels. As the central retinal
artery was blocked, the eye
ceased to function and she had no
vision in that eye. As the choles-
terol crystal broke up and went
further out in the eye, most of the
eye sight was reestablished.
Sometimes these crystals don’t
break up and the person loses
vision in that eye permanently.
I told the optometrist to have
her return to the office and on her
arrival, she wanted to know why
this was taking so long. She had
come to the clinic at 11:00 a.m. in
the morning and it was now 1:30
p.m. I politely indicated to her
that she had a major problem and
it would be in her interest to lis-
ten carefully. I explained to her
what a Hollenhorst plaque was
and then proceeded to interpret
what it really meant. It meant
that she had extensive cholesterol
deposition in all of her large
major vessels. I indicated that if
she didn’t do something about
this the likelihood of more events
such as she had experienced was
very high. I indicated that she got
lucky on this occasion and that
there was no permanent damage
to her eye or other parts of the
body with the brief blindness
event. But permanent damage to
her feet, her eyes, or kidneys or
heart, and brain were highly like-
ly if she continued her present
health habits. She indicated that
she didn’t like medications, she
didn’t trust them, she wasn’t tak-
ing any and she wasn’t going to.
She left the office stating that she
would change her diet, she would
walk more and she would try to
give up cigarettes. I noted for her
“try” is a command to fail. Try
means that the person will make
a meager effort, will start and
stop a few times and then keep
right on doing what they were
doing before because “trying”
doesn’t work. Do it or don’t do it
but don’t cop out with a claim
that “I will try.”
So now it was six weeks later
and she returned very disappoint-
ed with how far she could walk.
She indicated that she had devel-
oped a walking program previ-
ously and could easily walk
around the complex in which she
worked but now she was finding
it more difficult. She had meas-
ured off a distance of one mile
from her house and was working
to walk that far and back every
day. She said her legs ached so
bad she couldn’t walk very far out
and then the comeback walk was
horrible. She had read about Hol-
lenhorst plaques on the internet
and what atherosclerosis was all
about. Reluctantly she said okay,
she would take a medication. I
noticed the word “a” medication
and gave her a combination pill
containing the statin drug that
also contained medication to pre-
vent normal cholesterol absorp-
tion. A month after, her choles-
terol was down under 200 mil-
ligrams percent and her LDL was
down under 70 milligrams per-
cent. But she complained that she
didn’t feel a bit better and could-
n’t walk any further than she
could before. I explained to her
that regression of cholesterol
plaques in her arteries would
take months, even years to
regress and that her cigarettes
had to stop and she had to take a
blood pressure pill too.
That was seven years ago, and
somehow she continued to come
to the clinic, get her blood pres-
sure checked, get her cholesterol
checked, she stopped smoking
and in spite of her very aggres-
sive attitude, there was never any
blood on either one of us. Fortu-
nately, she is now faithfully walk-
ing three miles a day and has not
had a cardiac event or a stroke in
the seven years since she started
her medications.
This month in the Cleveland
Clinic Journal of Medicine there
is a very comprehensive article on
the evaluation and treatment of
“transient ischemic attacks.”
This is a broad technical term for
events such as amaurosis fugax
that happened to this lady. Other
things that qualify as “transient
ischemic attacks” include a brief
inability to speak normally, a
brief loss of function of an arm or
leg or both, a fainting spell, or
severe pain developing the
abdomen, the chest or limb when
the blood supply is briefly cut off.
The article in the Cleveland Clin-
ic Journal of Medicine makes a
point that there is one chance in
five of a person having a full
stroke within 90 days of a tran-
sient ischemia attack. That is
Russian roulette with one bullet
in five chambers which sounds to
me like a very dangerous game.

George Washington has been
called “The Father of our Coun-
try.” He might also be called “The
Father of our Pheasants.”
The nation’s first president is
credited with being the first per-
son to bring pheasants to the
United States, according to infor-
mation from the South Dakota
Department of Game Fish &
Parks contained in the South
Dakota State Historical Society --
Archives, located in the Cultural
Heritage Center in Pierre.
Washington had several pairs
of English pheasants sent from
England to his Mount Vernon
estate during his first term as
president.
The basis of pheasants in
South Dakota and throughout the
United States, though, is said to
have come from 70 pheasants
that Judge O. N. Denny, then
U.S. Consul at Shanghai, shipped
to his brother, John Denny, in
Oregon in 1880. The pheasants
were released in Oregon’s
Willamette Valley in 1880, 1881
and 1883.
Redfield calls itself the “Pheas-
ant Capital of the World®.” It was
in Spink County that the first
successful stocking of pheasants
and the first pheasant hunting
season took place in South Dako-
ta.
A. E. Cooper and E. L. Ebbert
bought several pairs of pheasants
from a Pennsylvania game farm
in 1908 and introduced them in
wooded sections of their farms
south of Doland. Those pheasants
fell victim to heavy snow that
winter. Cooper and Ebbert’s
efforts to release pheasants the
next year met with success.
H. P. Packard, H. J. Schalke
and H. A. Hagman, all of Red-
field, bought pheasants and
released them on Hagman’s farm
north of Redfield in 1909. About
that same year, A. C. Johnson
released 25 pheasants on his
ranch south of Frankfort.
Inspired by the success of these
releases, the Redfield Chamber of
Commerce made the first large
release of pheasants in the area.
In 1911, the South Dakota
Department of Game and Fish
released 48 pairs of pheasants
near Redfield that were pur-
chased with privately donated
funds. That same year, the state
bought 200 pairs of pheasants
and issued them to farmers living
along the James River in Spink
and Beadle counties.
The headline in the Sept. 3,
1913, Daily Capital-Journal in
Pierre read “The Pheasants are
Coming.” The article stated that
State Game Warden H. S.
Hedrick had been notified that
5,000 Chinese ring-necked pheas-
ants were arriving from a game
farm near Chicago. After being
displayed at the state fair in
Huron, the pheasants in “fami-
lies” of one rooster to several hens
were to be distributed throughout
the state, “the places of location
being determined by the showing
for natural protection and care
which will be assured the birds
for the first few years.”
In 1919, the shots heard round
South Dakota were fired when
the first open season on pheas-
ants took place on Oct. 30 in
Spink County. Game wardens
estimated that 200 of the pheas-
ant population of 100,000 made
the transition from the landscape
to the dinner table.
In 1943, state Rep. Paul
Kretschmar of Eureka delivered a
speech to the South Dakota Leg-
islature in which he extolled the
virtues of the pheasant. Other
states had designated the mead-
ow lark as their state bird, while
others had chosen song birds, he
said.
“To reward a bird of fine table
delicacy, sporting blood vigorous
and hardy, found throughout the
state, responsible for a substan-
tial part of our state income, and
one that has given us national
recognition, it is my recommenda-
tion that the Ring Neck Pheasant
be officially named as the bird of
our state,” he said.
A bill designating the Chinese
ring-neck pheasant as the state’s
official state bird was passed by
the Legislature in 1943. Thus,
South Dakota became a state that
extensively promotes the killing
and eating of an official symbol.
Pheasant numbers have varied
through the years, but that allure
of hunting pheasants has not.
Movie stars such as Clark
Gable, Carole Lombard and
Robert Taylor; baseball players
Ty Cobb, Bob Feller and Gabby
Hartnett; and politicians such as
former U.S. Vice President Dick
Cheney have all hunted pheas-
ants in South Dakota.
A magazine article by Don
Eddy, published about 1948, told
how railroad executive Lucien
Sprague brought a special 11-car
train from Minneapolis to Leola
containing at least two carloads
of millionaires from all points of
the compass during the pheasant
hunting season. At Huron, 36 out-
of-state airplanes were parked for
the pheasant hunting season
opener.
In Aberdeen, the pheasant can-
teen operated from Aug. 19, 1943,
to March 31, 1946, as a project of
the American Red Cross and the
USO. Thousands of soldiers,
sailors and marines who were
traveling through Aberdeen
toward training facilities or
deployments were greeted with
hospitality and pheasant sand-
wiches.
The 2012 pheasant hunting
season was from Oct. 20, 2012,
through Jan. 6, 2013, statewide.
There were 68,337 resident and
93,419 nonresident licenses
issued that allowed holders to
hunt pheasants, according to
information from G,F&P. A pro-
jected total of 1.4 million pheas-
ants were harvested. The eco-
nomic impact of pheasant hunt-
ing was $172.5 million.
When the 2013 pheasant hunt-
ing season begins at noon on Sat-
urday, Oct. 19, it continues an
annual autumn holiday in South
Dakota.
The opening weekend is filled
with good food, good dogs and
good tales of previous hunts. It’s
the story of how enduring friend-
ships are built upon common
interests, and how the tradition
of hunting still serves as an
important rite of passage into
adulthood. It’s passing down
from one generation to the next
the essential values of good
sportsmanship: respect for nature
and sharing abundance.
The immigrant bird has made
good in a big way.
The immigrant that thrived in South Dakota
In the 1920s near Madison. According to information on similar photo-
graphs in the State Archives, local sportsmen from the American Legion
had taken National American Legion Commander O’Neil(on right) pheas-
ant hunting.

Having grown up in Murdo, I
am no stranger to the independ-
ent and resilient nature of our
friends and neighbors living in
western South Dakota. And when
times are tough or tragedies occur
they are the first ones on the
scene ready to help those in need.
The first weekend in October,
part of western South Dakota
endured the wrath of a vicious
prairie snowstorm. The storm
covered fences, scattered and
killed livestock, and endangered
the existence of many west river
ranchers by destroying their cat-
tle, sheep, horses, and potentially
their livelihoods.
Soon after the blizzard condi-
tions diminished in western
South Dakota, I began hearing
about the catastrophic and heart-
rending livestock losses in the
wake of that unexpected early
season snowstorm. Once again,
the resilience of South Dakotans
has been severely tested by Moth-
er Nature.
While ranchers began digging
out and locating and disposing of
their livestock, I started taking
steps to provide our ranchers
with assistance by immediately
getting in touch with the Speaker
of the House of Representatives,
John Boehner, requesting that he
appoint Farm Bill conferees as
quickly as possible to ensure that
work be completed on the Farm
Bill. Both the House and Senate-
passed Farm Bills contain reau-
thorization and funding for live-
stock disaster programs, which I
helped author, including the Live-
stock Indemnity Program (LIP),
and could potentially pay 65-75
Veterans, the South Dakota
Department of Veterans Affairs is
thankful for your service to this
great nation and we are honored
to help you pursue the education
benefits you have earned. From
being a service-member to becom-
ing a student veteran, we are

evaluates and approves quality
programs of education and train-
ing under State and Federal cri-
teria. We conduct on-site supervi-
sory visits to approved institu-
tions. We are engaged in outreach
activities to foster the usage of
educational benefits. I encourage
you to contact our staff with any
questions you might have (Shane

retary of Agriculture.
I also sent a letter to the Secre-
tary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack,
urging him to immediately desig-
nate county Farm Service Agency
(FSA) employees who work in
service centers in storm-impacted
counties in South Dakota as
essential. All FSA state and coun-
ty office employees were sent
home by the Obama Administra-
tion during the partial govern-
ment shutdown. These employees
are needed to provide assistance
to producers and to assist county
emergency boards in conducting
damage assessments needed for
determining eligibility for low-
interest emergency loans.

As our veterans re-integrate
into society and onto college cam-
puses, it is important that they
have advisory, mentoring and
support services to assist them.
Most of our post-secondary insti-
tutions have Veterans Resource
Centers, a one-stop-shop for guid-
ing veterans. We encourage vet-
erans to locate that resource on
campus, and have posted links to
their websites: http://vetaffairs.

Despite the partial government
shutdown, I also felt it was impor-
tant to assess first-hand the live-
stock loss and damage resulting
from the early snowstorm. I spent
Thursday, October 10, meeting
with Black Hills Power about the
restoration efforts, touring areas
of Rapid City heavily impacted by
the snowstorm, and took an aeri-
al tour of western South Dakota
ranches to survey livestock loss
with Governor Dennis Daugaard.
I encourage all South
Dakotans to join me in keeping
our neighbors in western South
Dakota in our thoughts and
prayers. I will continue to work
with my colleagues in Washing-
ton to open our FSA offices in
storm-impacted counties and
pass a five-year Farm Bill to pro-
vide relief to our west river neigh-
bors.
in Dallas on the day he was
assassinated, President Kennedy
had written, “leadership and
learning are indispensable to
each other.” So, veterans, as you
pursue your degrees, you are
preparing yourselves for leader-
ship—of your communities and
our country. You are America’s
future—the ones who will lead
this great Nation. I believe that
the young men and women who
stood in our military formations
will always be America’s measure
of courage, perseverance, and
patriotism.
I salute every one of you.

tinue to serve the Nation.
