Homecoming parade kicks off a day of events
by Tami Jo Newbold-Flynn
Jones County had their annual
homecoming parade at 1:30 p.m.,
Friday, September 27. Joe Con-
not emceed the event once again.
The weather was nice for the
event and several businesses par-
ticipated along side the school.
The Legion kicked off the event
by carrying flags with the Jones
County school band following
playing the school song; followed
by the elementary classes, the
school floats, the business floats
and then our volunteer services:
Jones County Ambulance, Murdo
Fire Department, Murdo Fire and
Rescue and the Draper Fire
First place business float win-
ner was the Jones County Sports-

Joell kerner left for her home in
Winner after spending the week at
sister Ellen Valburg’s place.
Bill and Ellen Valburg enjoyed the
Pierre Players production of “Boeing
Boeing” Saturday afternoon. It was a
hilarious comedy.
Nelva and Janet Louder spent the
weekend in Rapid City. Saturday
evening they attended the very pret-
ty ivory, black and red wedding of
their granddaughter, Calli Pearson,
to Nick Winkelman held at the Rapid
Valley Baptist Church with Pastor
OC Summers officiating. Calli, wear-
ing her grandma Janet’s 58 year old
wedding dress with her mom Cara’s
veil, was escorted down the aisle by
her dad, Don. Great granddaughters
Charley and Aria, adorned in little
ivory gowns, were flower girls. When
Charley spilled the petals, she
thought she should pick them up.
Great grandson kingston in his lil
black tuxedo was ring bearer. They
were so cute, but Janet may be a lit-
tle prejudice. They really weren’t in a
sitting mood so kept their grandma
Cara and daddy Drew a little busy.
There were four bridesmaids (two
were Taylor Patrick and Courtney
Chester, Vivian) and they were very
pretty in their black dresses and red
heels. Ushers were the bride’s broth-
ers, Drew and Dawson. Don’s sister,
Lisa Pierson, sang and was accompa-
nied by her daughter, Rachel. All
went well – a very nice service. Calli
is the granddaughter of Chuck and
Carol Pearson of Lusk. There was a
reception/supper/dance held at the
Elks. The reception area was beauti-
fully decorated in the black, reds and
ivory. Supper was served, toasts were
made, wedding cake (made by grand-
ma Janet) was cut by the bride and
groom and fed to each other, garter
was auctioned and then the dancing
began. The beautiful bride with her
handsome husband had their first
dance as man and wife. Calli danced
with her dad, Don, and Nick with his
mom, Julie. Then many got in the
dancing mood – Janet even joined the
group. It got pretty lively at times.
Those enjoying the evening were:
Calli’s aunts, uncles and cousins
Vicki Hagemann; Brian, karen and
Chelsea Louder; Jay and Tyler Loud-
er; Casey and Gavin Miller, Monica
Reder, Shawna Lizotte; Brad Pear-
son and daughter; Lisa and Rod Pier-
son and daughter; Linda Mallory;
Brian and Robin Pearson and daugh-
ter; Travis Pearson and family. Bob
and Nancy Rohla from Presho were
also there. They were the Pearson
kids (Drew, Calli and Dawson)
babysitters when they lived at
Vivian. Also present was: kevin and
Jeanne Patrick and family; Mike and
Misti Chester and family; Cliff and
Renelle Uthe and family. Nick had a
lot of family there as well: parents,
grandparents, brothers and sisters.
Congratulations, Nick and Calli.
Sunday morning Nelva and Janet
Louder visited Nelva’s cousin, Maris
Dickey and son Hal. They met Vicki,
Shawna, Casey, Monica and Gavin
for brunch. Then to Don and Cara’s
home to watch the bride and groom
open gifts. They returned to Draper
There was another reception at
the Elks on Saturday evening. For-
mer Murdoite Craig Miller had been
a groomsman for that wedding, so he
came to the other reception for a bit.
The three Miller kids (Casey, Craig
and Shawna) had their pictures
taken together. (Just a little fact I
thought I would throw in as I hadn’t
seen Craig in a long time.)

That Blessed Hope
by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
“Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ;
“Who gave Himself for us, that He might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto Himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works” (Tit.2: 13,14).
A rich harvest of blessing was reaped for the Church in those years before and after the turn of the century when the great truth of the Lord’s coming
to catch away His own was recovered by men of God and the expectancy of His appearing became once more “that blessed hope” to multitudes of believ-
Now some are pointing to such passages as Matthew 24:6-9 and 29, 30 to prove that the Church will go through the tribulation. Others have adopted a
“mid-tribulation” view, holding that the Church will go through only the first half of the tribulation period, and will be caught away before the fearful out-
pouring of God’s wrath in the “great tribulation.” Still others hold the so-called “partial rapture” view on the basis of our Lord’s exhortation to His disci-
ples in Luke 21:36. Ac-cording to this view only those “counted worthy” will be caught up at the rapture.
And thus the glorious prospect that Paul, by inspiration, holds out to the members of Christ’s body as “that blessed hope,” is again being lost to grow-
ing numbers of sincere believers, simply because they fail to recognized it as a distinctly Pauline revelation.
It is a significant fact that in the very first epistle from Paul’s pen he already refers to a prior hope for the members of the Body of Christ, the hope of
a coming of Christ which precedes His return to earth to reign. In I Thessalonians 1:9,10 he recalls:
“…how ye turned to God from idols, to serve the living and true God,
And in I Thessalonians 4:16-18 he explains:
“…We which are alive and remain…shall be CAUGHT UP TOGETHER WITH THEM IN THE CLOUDS, TO MEET THE LORD IN THE AIR; and
so shall we ever be with the Lord.
“Wherefore comfort one another with these words.”
To those who remain blind to this important fact such passages as Matthew 24 must qualify, if not contradict, I Thessalonians 4, and any attempt to har-
monize the Gospel records as to Christ’s return with Paul’s special revelation as to His coming for His own, must end in the most bewildering confusion.
But we who do recognize the distinctive character of Paul’s apostleship and revelation have no such problem to vex us. To us “that blessed hope” glows
— surely should glow — brighter as the days grow darker.
Two minutes with the bible
“For by grace you have been
saved through faith, and this is
not your own doing; it is the gift
of God — not the result of works,
so that no one may boast. For we
are what he has made us, created
in Christ Jesus for good works,
which God prepared beforehand
to be our way of life” (Ephesians
The statement is true that “the
road to Hell is paved with many
good intentions.” Nowadays,
some folks seem to think that
“doing good deeds,” “good works,”
or “being a good person” is
enough to please God. Not so!
You can never do enough “good
deeds” to please God.
You will never be able to earn
your way into heaven. You don’t
earn your place in heaven like
some other religions believe. God
offers to you the “free gift” of His
grace through faith in Jesus
Christ. All you have to do is say
“Yes” and accept God’s free gift.
You will notice in the above
verse from Ephesians that the
apostle Paul, who had once per-
secuted followers of “the Way,”
the early church, soon discovered
that wasn’t what God wanted
him to do.
We read in the book of Acts
that Saul, before he became Paul,
approved of the stoning to death
of God’s servant, Stephen. He
even held the coats of those who
did the stoning. Jesus Christ soon
changed Paul’s heart on the Dam-
ascus road, where Jesus convert-
ed Paul into the servant He want-
ed Paul to be — the apostle who
would bring the “Good News” of
the Gospel, God’s saving grace in
Jesus Christ, to the Gentiles
(that’s you and me). You are prob-
ably saying to yourself right now,
“Get to the point!” Okay, my point
is this:
Good deeds, good works, or
being a good person won’t earn
you a place in heaven or favor
with God. God’s already paid the
way for you through the blood
that His Son Jesus Christ shed
for you on the cross. Martin
Luther said it well when he said
that John 3:16 is the Gospel in a
nutshell: “For God so loved the
world that he gave his only Son,
so that everyone who believes in
him may not perish but may have
eternal life.” Paul told the jailer,
“Believe on the Lord Jesus
Christ and you will be saved.”
The only way you can know
about God’s grace, that free gift
of God’s unconditional love for
you, is for you to get back in
step with God. So, what do you
need to do? God partners with
those whom He has created —
the church — and called the
church to go find the lost and
bring them home. Just like the
parables of the lost coin, the
lost sheep, and the prodigal
son, God loves you enough to
search until He finds you and
brings you home. “The church”
was God’s idea: “keep watch
over yourselves and over all the
flock, of which the Holy Spirit
has made you overseers, to
shepherd the church of God
that he obtained with the blood
of his own Son” (Acts 20:28).
What saddens God’s heart is
when you and your family
become the number one priority
in life. That is, as Paul would
say, you “love and serve the
creature, instead of the Cre-
ator.” I pray that you and your
family get right with God by
saying “Yes” to Jesus Christ.
“Seizing the hope set before us” Heb. 6:18

tions celebrated their annual
meeting, Saturday, September
28, 2013, in Wall. More than 300
members attended the 61st annu-
al meeting. Jeff Nielsen, presi-
dent of the board of directors wel-
comed the members and recog-
nized Robert Hansen, from
Howes, who retired after sitting
on the board of directors for 24
Denny Law, general manag-
er/CEO, reiterated Hansen’s
many contributions, and years of
commitment to the Cooperative.
He also laid out the many ways
that Golden West continues to
invest in its members. From
expansion the toll-free calling,
which began in June of 2013; the
Golden West scholarship and eco-
nomic development programs; the
video programming access to
state high school events and colle-
giate sports, Golden West contin-
ues to invest in its members.
Law stated that Golden West
constructed just over 500 miles of
fiber optic cable connecting
approximately 1,000 homes and
businesses. In 2013, Golden West
will construct close to 900 miles of
fiber optic cable, which extends
our capacity for future applica-
tions and boosts our Internet
Law also touched the Federal
Communications Commission’s
recent rulings that affect local
service rates, future infrastruc-
ture, and future technology. “We
will continue to fight until policy-
makers understand the impor-
tance of ensuring that advanced
telecommunications remain a cor-
nerstone investment in rural
America,” stated Law.
Three of the four board mem-
bers up for election were incum-
bents to the board they each ran
unopposed. Re-elected to four-
year terms were Bart Birkeland
to District VII, Dale Guptill to
District VI, and kenneth Zickrick
Jr., to District IV. Also serving a
four-year term will be Jade Hlav-
ka who ran unopposed in District
I, the district that Robert Hansen
previously represented.
Brent Morris and the Western
Acoustics, from Hill City enter-
tained the crowd with some foot-
tapping classic country music.
During the meeting, several
customers won door prizes. The
grand prize of $500 went to Mary
Lou Claussen of Martin, SD. Next
year’s Annual Meeting will be
held September 27, 2014.

Lady Coyotes start season
with win against Eagles
by Mikayla Waldron
The Coyotes went to the first
game nervous but ready to play
and pulled out a close win against
Wall September 3. With only ten
on varsity, the girls worked hard
for their win. Senior Skylar
Green said “We played really well
for our first game and I’m excited
to see how the rest of the season
will turn out.” This season there
are three seniors, four juniors,
five sophomores, and six fresh-
men on the team. (25-17) (25-21)

Summer vacation? What’s that? Students fill
months with full days of work, learning, fun
by Skyler Miller
Summer was a busy and fun
time for JC students. Many
attended camps, worked at jobs
and had fun.
Cody Manke worked as a dish-
washer at the Buffalo Bar, a life-
guard in Murdo and as a farm-
hand for his dad. He said he
enjoyed the multiple jobs he had
and the responsibility he held.
Haley Booth babysat and worked
for her dad all summer. Her
favorite part of working was bal-
ing, riding horse and doing the
little jobs around the ranch.
Students also took part in
many other activities. Mikayla
Waldron participated in two 5k
runs-- one in Sioux Falls called
Sioux Glow and one in Rapid City
called Run or Dye. Rachel Buxcel
went to her brother Tyler’s wed-
ding. “The wedding was fun, but
the memories made that night
were the best part of it,” said
Rachel. Madison Matthews
played basketball for the Dakota
Niners and took part in basket-
ball tournaments at Wisconsin
Dells, Omaha and Sioux Falls.
Students attended several
camps, Mikayla Waldron and
Carole Benda attended Girls
State in Vermillion, and Jackson
Volmer and Skyler Miller attend-
ed Boys State in Aberdeen. Reed
Venard, Zach Hespe, Cody Manke
and Allison Green also went to
Conservation Camp in the Black
For sports camps, Skyler
Miller went to multiple football
prospect camps around the coun-
try. He said, “It’s crazy when you
get outside of South Dakota and
see how many other good players
there are around the country.”
The football team attended two
team camps, one in Gregory and
one in Chamberlain. The girls’
basketball team attended four
different camps around the state.
Cheerleaders also went to a
couple of cheer camps. Mikayla
Waldron said, “The camps were
really fun this year and I enjoyed
learning new things.”
After such a full summer, stu-
dents were almost ready to get
back to school and a regular

Construction awareness days puts
class on heavy duty equipment
by Skyler Miller
Senior boys in shop classes got
to take a day off from school to
learn about their possible futures
in the construction industry at
Construction Awareness Days in
Pierre. The attendees, Jackson
Volmer, Chad Johnson, Casey
Brink, Clayton Evans, Skyler
Miller, and Travis Grablander,
all enjoyed spending the day
learning about possible career
As soon as the boys arrived, they
were given hard-hats and neon
vests, necessary work equipment
for the day. They then joined a
group of 120 other shop students
from around the region. They par-
ticipated in different events
throughout the day including
operating large-work equipment,
building and constructing activi-
ties, and learning different tests
used out in the field. Johnson
said, “I enjoyed driving the equip-
ment; it’s definitely an exciting
feeling knowing you have all that
power around you.”
The shop class is not only
exploring new ventures outside
school but inside school as well
with a new table saw and new-to-
the-school welding equipment
donated by Bennett County
School District. The new equip-
ment hasn’t been all sunshine
and rainbows though; teacher
Jody Gittings has spent many
hours trying to get the correct
parts for the new saw sent to the
school. The new equipment is
welcome and includes safety fea-
tures that were missing from the

pares to use the big loader.
Weather interrupts activities, but 2013 homecoming carries on
by Skylar Green
The class of 2014 chose Super-
heroes/Villains for the homecom-
ing theme which resulted in some
clever floats and stiff competition.
During the week, students cele-
brated by dressing as Hippies and
Nerds, signed T-shirts, wore Ath-
letic Jerseys and supported the
teams with Blue/Orange Day.
At coronation on Monday, Sep-
tember 23, Jackson Volmer and
Mikayla Waldron received the
coveted crowns with their court of
Skylar Green, Carole Benda,
Chad Johnson and Clayton
Evans. Mother Nature intervened
with some welcome rain, so the
student body burned the JC fol-
lowing the girls’ volleyball game
on Thursday night, then followed
up with the car bash. Sophomore
Dana Treth-away said, “When I
hit the car with the bat was a
pretty awesome moment, and I
enjoyed the look on everyone’s
face when I dented the car with a
Senior Chad Johnson said, “I
thought Spirit Week was fun and
I liked the dress up days. The JC
burned slowly too, and it looked
cool.” Another student said it
looked like “liquid fire.”
Classes even managed to get
some white wash on the streets as
well. According to freshman Jake
Lolley, “White washing was defi-
nitely a great time. It’d be a good
idea to bring a 4-wheeler next
Thursday brought the ever-
popular Olympics with classes
dressed in different colored shirts
and ready for the tough chal-
lenges. Dodgeball, Chariot Races,
and several Minute-to-Win-It
games, proved to be far more
challenging than they appear on
TV. Defying Gravity, Moving On
Up, Junk in the Trunk, Stick to
It, Pink Elephant and Bucket
Head all challenged the classes.
Finally, the morning ended with
the favorite Tug of War which the
Seniors and Freshmen won in
their respective divisions.
Those two classes were also the
overall winners: Seniors 48
points, Juniors 45, Sophomores
28; Junior High division: Fresh-
men 64, Seventh 28 and Eighth
26. Junior Shelby Bork said, “The
Olympics were okay. I didn’t real-
ly like the new games, though. I
think the old games were more
fun.” After a pep assembly it was
on to a speedy lunch and float
building for Thursday afternoon
and Friday morning. Sophomore
Colleen Greenseth said, “I liked,
even loved, building the float.”
Norah Herman added, “It was
fund building, but I wish our fog
had shown up during the parade.”
At the football game Friday
night, the following winners were
announced: High School Division,
1-Seniors, 2-Sophomores, 3-Jun-
iors, 4-Freshmen; Junior High: 1-
Seventh, 2-Eighth;
Commercial/Clubs, 1-JC Sports-

Homecoming win sparks Coyote Season
by Skyler Miller
The Coyotes fought hard in
their loss against Hill City. Quar-
ter by quarter the Coyotes
clashed against the rangers, only
to fall in the last few minutes of
the game. Coach Sealey said,
“We fought hard and showed a lot
of improvement in the Hill City
game, but a few mistakes were
very costly to us and could have
changed the outcome of the
game.” The final score was 8-32.
On offense Skyler Miller and
Chad Johnson led the Coyotes in
rushing with 117 rushing yards
together, with Miller leading with
59 and Johnson a close second
with 58. Dalton and Dylan kins-
ley gave the team an additional
39 yards rushing. Connor Venard
led with 62 yards receiving, with
Cody Hight also providing 43
yards receiving. Miller had 12
yards receiving to give Dylan a
total of 117 yards passing.
Dalton led with 12 tackles
while Miller, Hight, Venard and
Johnson all had 10 tackles apiece.
John king and Clayton Evans
also gave the Coyotes 5 tackles
Victorious in their homecoming
win over the White River Tigers,
the team looks to turn their sea-
son around. They battled hard in
the rain and came up with their
first win of the season.
Senior Clayton Evans said, “It
feels great to win my last home-
coming game and to bring home
the trophy of the River Bowl.” (a
new traveling trophy tradition
between Jones County and White
River) The final score was 16-14.
On offense, Miller led with 198
rushing yards out of the total 275
yards. Johnson, Wyatt Weber and
Dylan kinsley earned the rest of
the rushing yards. Venard had
100 yards receiving and Hight
provided an additional 39 yards,
all from quarterback Dylan kins-
Venard led the team with 17
tackles and Johnson added 13
and Hight and Miller 11 each.
Coach Sealey hopes to gain
momentum with the homecoming
win and looks forward to the next
game against Stanley County in
Ft. Pierre on Friday October 4.

just stay at home, but that isn’t
always completely possible.
Occasionally you have to take
your heart in your hands and
risk it. It isn’t much fun, but I
haven’t ever actually had a wreck
in the process. I have gotten
stuck and had to walk home or
for help, but at least the vehicle
and I have always both stayed in
one piece.
Other things to be on the look-
out for around here might
include rattlesnakes, spiders,
blizzards, tornados, and bats.
With snakes you soon learn to
look where you’re going in warm
weather when they are out and
about. Don’t walk quickly
through tall grass and that sort
of thing, and kick stumps over
before picking them up. I’ve had
enough close calls in the past to
keep me watchful. There is still a
danger no matter how careful
you are as my neighbor found out
this summer. She was just weed-
ing a flower patch when she felt
pain in her hand and then saw a
rattler that had slithered out of
its hiding place in some cement
blocks and bitten her. She, in
consequence, had to make a hur-
ried trip to the doctor and a stay
in the hospital for a few days.
Bats, by the way, are generally
not something that give you any
trouble. I just hate them and like
to stay out of their way.
Almost anywhere you live, you
will find risks of some sort or
other. The main one in California
as far as I can tell is driving on
freeways. Those people are crazy
drivers and like to go at full
speed, bumper to bumper, and
then suddenly screech to a halt.
This took a little getting used to,
and I never did care much for it.
Some areas of the cities should
also be avoided if at all possible
or driven through only with fully
locked doors.
In New Orleans, I also avoided
walking down dark alleys at
night when I had a room in the
French Quarter. It wasn’t a
dreadfully scary place, but you
should keep your eyes open. I
know radio antennas were not
worth replacing because they
routinely got broken off. Certain
people there must have a fetish
about antennas since you could
never keep one on your car for
very long. It also was best to
leave your car unlocked at night
since then no one would bother
your vehicle. If you locked it, they
figured there was something
worthwhile inside so they’d
break in. The car thing is not so
much a peril. It’s just sympto-
matic of the kind of people you’re
dealing with. Personally, I prefer
living here where critters and
weather pose the main problems
and not other people.
Anyway, there are certain haz-
ards around us that we need to
be aware of so we can avoid
them. Fortunately, I don’t expect
much danger any more today
since I’m not going anywhere or
doing much. I probably should
avoid eating anything that will
give me indigestion or add any
poundage where I don’t need it.
Other than that, I should be fair-
ly safe. Nevertheless, I’ll try to
keep my wits about me and stay
out of trouble. Luckily, my Lord
constantly looks after me and
helps me out. That takes a lot of
worry out of the whole business
and gives me peace of mind. I’m
very thankful for that.
This is the time of year when
hornets like to sit on doorknobs
and catch you unaware. There is
no good reason for them to be
there, but they are. I suspect it is
just so you can offend them
which gives them a good excuse
to sting you before flying off in
righteous indignation. I have
been stung several times just try-
ing to get into the house on a
warm fall day in past years, but
most of the time I see the nasty
yellow and black things before-
hand and shoo them away. Alter-
nately, I feel something wiggle in
my hand and let go very quickly.
Still, sometimes you get stung.
This is just one example of the
many hazards we have to watch
for and try to avoid in life. In this
state, ice can be a problem. Most
winters we have a spell of cold
some time or other with slippery
surfaces underfoot. One year I
basically fell under the pickup
just trying to get out of it. Lucki-
ly, I was well padded with thick
winter clothing so mostly it was
my pride that was injured and
not my body. That isn’t always
the case. A young friend of ours
told us he had fallen on the ice
the same week I did, but he had
a good reason for it. According to
him, he had “self-induced bal-
ance problems” at the time. In
other words, he had lingered a
little too long at the bar before
walking home.
Our country roads have been
known to be hazardous as well. I
don’t know how many times over
the years I’ve crept down our
steep creek hill in a pickup to
avoid slipping over the edge due
to either mud or ice. When the
roads are like that, I prefer to

need additional preparation and
skills for progressive teaching. As
we move toward a future where
our world is rapidly changing our
teachers are finding themselves
preparing our students for a world
most of use can’t imagine. This
thought in itself presents a vari-
ety of challenges.
Education in our society
becomes increasingly more impor-
tant as we consider what the
world has in store for our future.
Our teachers also need to learn
new technology and methods to
keep pace with these changes.
This increases the needs for pro-
fessional development opportuni-
ties for teachers and staff at Jones
County. As we plan for the future
for Jones County Schools, profes-
sional development for staff will
be a critical part of any future suc-
cess at our school. Our profession-
al development days this year are
limited with our first opportunity
coming on October 11 as we dis-
miss at 12:30 p.m. on this day. We
hope to use this time to spring-
board teacher professional devel-
opment deep into our future.
Thank you for your past and
future support of Jones County
Schools’ athletic, arts, and aca-
demic programs. Your support
and presence at our activities and
events is appreciated.
We all have heard the old adage
practice makes perfect. Most of us
have spent hours or years improv-
ing a craft or a skill we have
desired to learn. Students are not
much different as they learn new
concepts in Math, Science, Eng-
lish, etc. Preparing by studying,
homework, and class projects
make the task at hand easier if the
time is taken to appropriately
learn the skills. Often times the
route to preparing is different for
each of us. Students have different
levels of aptitude and interest in
various subjects which also play a
role in success.
In order to help students be suc-
cessful learners our teachers also

Murdo Coyote • October 3, 2013 • 6
Twenty-five short years ago,
producers were asking about the
value of fertilizing wheat planted
back on wheat stubble, and fertil-
izing wheat planted on fallow was
virtually unheard of. Due to years
of removing fertilizer nutrients,
no-till farming practices, continu-
ous cropping and the pursuit of
higher yields, most crops receive
one or more forms of commercial
There are many philosophy’s
used to decide if producers need
to apply fertilizer, and if so, what
nutrient, what product(s) and
how much. These may range from
a seat of the pants approach like
applying what the neighbor does
up to more sound approaches.
Although neither soil testing nor
fertilizing is an exact science, soil
testing is the best way to evaluate
the fertility status of a field or of
areas within a field.
If you are going to base fertiliz-
er rates on soil test results, it
pays to follow recommended prac-
tices. When you send a sample off
to the laboratory for plant-avail-
able nutrient analysis, a good soil
sample that adequately repre-
sents your field or area gives you
good results. A poor sample will
only lead to an analysis of limited
value and be a waste of your time
and money.
Testing soils even every second
or third year is much better than
not testing at all, and allows you
to identify trends in fertility lev-
els. For more information on soil
sampling, ask for factsheet

pling Methods for South Dakota”,

Drought Risk Management
South Dakota ranchers who
received good rainfall in 2013
know it’s only a matter of time
before they’re dealing with
drought again. SDSU Extension
will host four Drought Risk Man-
agement Workshops for cattle,
sheep and other livestock produc-
ers in Hot Springs October 8, in
Lemmon October 9, in Gettys-
burg October 10 and in Winner
October 11.
These workshops are designed
to help ranchers develop and
write drought management and
mitigation plans for their own
operations. Ranchers will receive
the tools they need to create a
drought plan that fits their own
needs and goals.
The one-day hands-on work-
shops will focus on many aspects
of drought risk management,
including: why you need a written
drought plan, and how to do it;
weather and climate monitoring;
measuring grassland productivi-
ty; using pasture, rangeland, for-
age – rainfall index insurance; SD

This prime farmland was originally purchased by Dave Heaton in the early
1940s and has remained in the family (Donna Zidko is Dave`s daughter) all
of these past years and has never before been offered for sale in those 70+
years. Tract 1 (SE1/4, Sec. 28), the Heaton Quarter just east of Belvidere
consists of ±133.29 acres of which approx. 125.83 acres are tillable. Of these
acres, all are classified as Class 3 soils with 110 of these acres having a pro-
ductivity index of 58 and the remaining a productivity index of 71. This is a
very desirable and productive tract. Tract 2 (SW1/4, Sec. 29 & Outlot F & G,
Sec. 32) consists of ±146.74 total acres and is located on the western edge
of town. Most of these acres are tillable land with the exception of a dam and
drainage area in the northeast corner and consists mostly of Class 4 soils
with a productivity index avg. about 50. These two tracts will be offered indi-
vidually, and as one unit, selling in the manner realizing the greater return.

Prior to 1940, there was really no
effective means of dealing with
infections. Tuberculosis, pneumo-
nia and other infectious diseases
were the predominant cause of
death in our society. Antibiotics
have more or less made death from
infection alone a relative rarity.
Note that many infections could be
transferred from one person to
another and contacting pneumonia
or tuberculosis was not related to
anything the person did except per-
haps to get coughed on and was not
the person’s fault. It was unusual
for a person’s person habits to
cause an infection.
But my how things have
changed. Along came antibiotics
and the purification of our water
and food. The infectious causes of
death plummeted. But in the place
of infection has now come self-cho-
sen behaviors that are intensely
detrimental. Now self-inflicted dis-
ease has been catapulted into the
leading cause of death in our socie-
ty. Earlier this month, an article
appeared in the New England Jour-
nal of Medicine directed to behav-
ioral and dietary risk factors for
non-infectious disease. These fac-
tors are things the person does to
themselves to cause the disease.
The factors discussed in the New
England Journal of Medicine arti-
cle are as follows:
1. Cigarette smoking. In the
United States, cigarette smoking
among men is now down to about
20 percent of the population and
among women down to around 12
percent. This habit is still the most
lethal habit a person can have. It is
a leading cause of death from heart
attack, cancer, stroke and lung dis-
2. High blood pressure. The con-
stant need to cope and struggle in
our society is associated with high
blood pressure. Dietary factors
including excessive salt intake con-
tribute to high blood pressure. A
sedentary lifestyle thrust upon us
with our computers and other
labor-saving devices also con-
tributes to high blood pressure.
High blood pressure is a major
cause of death from stroke and
heart attack. However, during a
person’s lifetime the most dramatic
effect of high blood pressure is
heart failure in which the person’s
physical capability is progressively
lost because the heart is not strong
enough to pump against the body’s
high blood pressure.
3. Excessive alcohol intake. In
spite of very credible date that two
alcoholic beverages a day is associ-
ated with longevity, alcohol excess
continues to be a major cause of
death in our society. It is associated
with cognitive impairment, demen-
tia, liver disease, heart failure and
an excess of accidental causes of
4. Excessive weight and obesity.
The obesity epidemic in our society
at this time is quite amazing. Prior
to our labor-saving devices, the
incidence of obesity in our society
was as low as 10 percent. Now it is
over 60 percent. The availability of
fast food and high caloric snacks
along with our frantic lifestyle
make picking up fast foods very
common. The food with excessive
carbohydrates such as candy bars,
sweet rolls, etc contribute to dia-
betes, high blood pressure and high
cholesterol. These are all very
important factors for stroke and
heart attack. Until our country
comes to grips with the obesity epi-
demic, there will be a tendency for
reversal of the gains in longevity
we’ve had over the past 40 years.
5. Balanced nutrition. Independ-
ent of the obesity problem are sev-
eral foods that are simply poison-
ous. Among these are trans-fats,
excessive salt, low dietary intake of
fresh fruits and vegetables, low
dietary intake of fish and high
dietary intake of red meat. Fructose
sweetened beverages encourage
high blood sugars and unmasking
of a diabetic tendency.
Common to all of the above fac-
tors is that each is self-controlled
and self-inflicted. The individual is
the only one that can decide what
they will eat. The individual is the
only one that decide what they will
do. The individual is the only one
that decides to avoid self-destruc-
tive behavior such as cigarette
smoking, alcohol abuse and an
unbalanced diet.
We continue to struggle with
how much of our gross domestic
product comes from medical and
healthcare. At this point, it is
almost 18 percent. Medicare and
health insurance are a staggering
consideration. And yet 80 percent of
every dollar spent for healthcare is
for the treatment of self-inflicted
disease. Imagine what we could do
with our healthcare costs if we sim-
ply changed our own personal
habits to a healthier lifestyle.
The healthcare professionals at
your local clinics and hospitals have
little if any significant impact on
the behavior of the general America
public. We still treat disease after it
has occurred rather than effectively
preventing it from ever happening.
The healthcare industry is not
equal and is never going to be equal
to the self- destructive behavior of
our population. Unless there comes
some inspirational force, we are
destined for more and more
expense and more and more disease
in our own population. This disease
and expense will come from what
we do to ourselves.

up to you
report forecasts corn at 13.8 bil-
lion bushels, up less than one per-
cent from last month and 28 per-
cent from 2012. If reached, corn
production will be the highest on
record for the United States.
Yields are expected to average
155.3 bushels per acre, just slight-
ly higher than last month’s fore-
cast and 31.9 bushels above the
2012 average. Soybeans are set to
produce 3.15 billion bushels, down
three percent from August, but up
four percent from last year. If met,
this would be the fourth largest
soybean production on record.
Producers must annually pro-
vide the quantity of all harvested
production of the crop in which
the producer held an interest dur-
ing the crop year. We will send out
the “NAP Yields” form which lists
your acres and a spot for you to
record your production. The dead-
line for reporting this production
is November 15, 2013. Production
reporting is required for all 2013
crops on farms with NAP cover-
NOVEMBER 15, 2013
Producers of perennial forage
crops for harvest and fall seeded
grains (for example: Rye, Winter
Wheat, grass, alfalfa, mixed for-
age for hay and/or pasture) need
to certify these acres for 2014 crop
year by NOVEMBER 15, 2013.
This is an effort to streamline pro-
gram administration between
FSA, Crop Insurance, RMA and
other USDA agencies. This
change went into effect for the
2013 crop year. Producers need to
certify these acres by November
15, 2013. If you acquire additional
forage acres after the reporting
date, you have 30 days from the
date of your new lease or purchase
to timely report the acreage. If
you have any of these crops please
contact the office immediately to
certify these acres. Producers who
do not report by the November 15
deadline will be subject to a late
filed reporting fee.

The U.S. Government will trim
payments to 350,000 farmers by
about $152 million to comply with
automatic spending cuts that took
effect at the start of April. Agricul-
ture Secretary Tom Vilsack said
the money would come out of the
$5 billion-a-year direct-payment
subsidy, which is paid in the fall,
to offset reductions due in three
USDA programs that have already
disbursed money to farmers. Dur-
ing a speech to trade group offi-
cials, Vilsack said comparatively
small amounts are due for each
farmer, so it would be more effi-
cient to pro-rate the direct-pay-
ment subsidy than to ask the
farmers for a refund on checks
already cut. Affected are the milk
income loss contract subsidy to
dairy farmers, the supplemental
revenue assistance program
(SURE) and the noninsured assis-
tance program (NAP). SURE and

that cover losses due to bad weath-

Every year, I have the opportuni-
ty to nominate young South
Dakotans who are interested in
attending one of our four U.S. Serv-
ice Academies. Our nation’s service
academies provide young men and
women the opportunity to further
their education while serving our
country. If you, or someone you may
know, is interested in applying to
the Military Academy at West
Point, Naval Academy at Annapo-
lis, Air Force Academy in Colorado
Springs, or the Merchant Marine
Academy in kings Point, here is
some additional information that
may be of interest to you.
The first step is to submit a pre-
candidate application to the pre-
ferred academy. I would also
encourage you to contact your high
school counselor about your inter-
est in attending a military academy
so you can start preparing now by
taking a challenging course load
and supplementing your applica-
tion with extracurricular and phys-
ical activities.
Nominating South
Dakota’s best and
brightest for our
nation’s service
In order to be considered for
admission to a service academy,
applicants must also receive a nom-
ination from a member of Congress.
You can download a nomination
application from my website
(http://noem.house.gov) and may
also call my Sioux Falls office at
605-275-2868 for application
In addition to completing the
application, I request that appli-
cants submit the following informa-
tion: a cover letter detailing why
you would like a nomination to a
service academy; a list of extracur-
ricular activities, honors, awards,
employment and current course-
work; a high school transcript; ACT
and/or SAT scores; a minimum of
three letters of recommendation
and any copies of correspondence
you’ve received from the academies.
I’m proud to say that all appli-
cants receive an interview with my
academy nomination board. Inter-
views are held the first Saturday in
December in both Sioux Falls and
Rapid City. We are also able to con-
duct phone interviews if you are
unable to interview in-person due
to circumstances beyond your con-

Hunting and fishing are a way of
life in South Dakota. Like many
across the state, I have great mem-
ories of heading out to the stock
dam with my Dad, rod in hand,
working hard to land a bigger fish
than him. Sometimes we caught
our limit, sometimes we went home
empty-handed—but we always had
a great time. While I don’t make it
out fishing much anymore, pheas-
ant hunting is a different story.
Nothing beats the feeling of knock-
ing down the first pheasant on
opening day, walking the field with
old friends, and ending the evening
telling embellished stories of the
“shot of day.”
South Dakotans have a great
appreciation for the outdoors and
for the sporting traditions that not
only provide endless hours of enter-
tainment, but also provide signifi-
cant economic benefits to our state.
However, potential Environment
Protection Agency (EPA) regula-
tions could dramatically change the
availability of hunting ammunition
and fishing tackle for sportsmen
and women throughout the coun-
try. Some in the environmental
community want the EPA to ban
traditional lead in hunting ammu-
nition and fishing tackle, increas-
ing the cost and pricing some
sportsmen and women out of the
market. According to industry
experts, metallic non-traditional
ammunition makes up only one
percent of the market share.
In response to these regulations,
I introduced legislation along with
Senator Amy klobuchar (D-Minn.)
that would protect ammunition and
fishing tackle from unnecessary
EPA regulation by excluding it
from the Toxic Substances Control
Act. Our bill, the Hunting, Fishing,
and Recreational Shooting Protec-
tion Act, would instead leave the
regulation of these items up to the
agencies that currently regulate
both ammunition and tackle. Our
bill is supported by the National
Rifle Association, Safari Club, Con-
gressional Sportsmen’s Foundation,
Wildlife Forever, and other hunting
and fishing groups.
As co-chair of the Congressional
Sportsmen’s Caucus and as an avid
outdoorsman, I will continue to
work with my colleagues in Con-
gress to put an end to the EPA’s far-
reaching and burdensome regula-
tions, and to help ensure that
future generations of South
Dakotans are not unnecessarily
restricted from hunting, fishing,
and enjoying the great outdoors.
Defending our
hunting and
fishing traditions
Delegation invites South Dakotans
to apply to U.S. Service Academies
Representative kristi Noem,
Senator Tim Johnson and Sena-
tor John Thune announced today
that young South Dakotans inter-
ested in being nominated to one of
the four U.S. Service Academies
for the Class of 2018 should apply
by October 31, 2013.
South Dakota residents
between the ages of 17 and 23
may apply to any of the four serv-
ice academies if they meet eligi-
bility requirements in leadership,
physical aptitude, scholarship
and character. The four service
academies are the Military Acad-
emy at West Point, New York; the
Naval Academy at Annapolis,
Maryland; the Air Force Academy
at Colorado Springs, Colorado;
and the Merchant Marine Acade-
my at kings Point, New York.
“Nominating students each
year for admission to our Service
Academies is one of my favorite
responsibilities as a U.S. Senator.
I am continually impressed by the
caliber of South Dakota students
who apply,” said Johnson. “U.S.
Service Academies are rigorous,
but open a world of opportunity
for their students.”
“Our nation’s Service Acade-
mies attract some of the best and
brightest young men and women
from around the nation,” said
Thune. “These military men and
women serve our country with
distinction and it is an honor for
me to nominate students from
South Dakota to serve at these
fine institutions.”
“The U.S. Service Academies
help build up the next generation
of American leaders, and it is a
privilege to nominate South
Dakotans to the four Academies,”
said Rep. Noem. “South Dakota’s
young people continue to impress
and inspire me, and I look for-
ward to the nomination process.”
Noem, Johnson and Thune will
each compile separate lists and
make nominations to the acade-
mies of the most qualified candi-
dates by January 31, 2014. Appli-
cants are encouraged to submit
applications to all three Congres-
sional offices in order to better
their chances of receiving a nomi-
nation. The academies will make
the final decision on acceptance
and announce appointments next

Thune’s office accepting
spring internship applications
Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) is
currently seeking intelligent,
hard-working college students to
serve as spring interns in his
office in Washington, D.C., as
well as in his offices in Aberdeen,
Rapid City, and Sioux Falls.
Interns in Senator Thune’s
state offices will participate in
constituent service and state out-
reach activities, while students in
the Washington, D.C., office will
have the opportunity to witness
the legislative process, give Capi-
tol tours, and attend Senate votes
and hearings. Both in-state and
Washington, D.C., internships
will allow students to work close-
ly with constituents, hone their
research and writing skills, and
learn a multitude of valuable
office skills.
“Interning in a Senate office
provides students with an excel-
lent opportunity to experience
democracy in action,” said Thune.
“Interns gain valuable knowledge
about both state and national
issues and an understanding of
the inner workings of a Senate
office. I encourage all students to
consider applying for this reward-
ing experience.”
Senator Thune is a member of
the Senate Committees on Agri-
culture, Nutrition, and Forestry;
Commerce, Science, and Trans-
portation; and Finance.
College students who are inter-
ested in interning in Senator

The newspapers pay for all ongo-
ing costs to host and maintain the
Once a public notice is printed
in the newspaper, the next step
taken is to upload it to sdpublic-
“Newspaper publishers in
South Dakota recognize the value
that this site delivers to enhance
the reach and searchability of
public notices first published in
the local newspaper,” said David
Bordewyk, general manager of
South Dakota Newspaper Associ-
“South Dakota newspapers are
observing “Public Notices Month”
in October, so this is a good
opportunity to bring attention to
the value-added online presence
for public notices through sdpub-
licnotices.com,” he said.
“Publication of public notices
in the local newspaper remains
the most effective and most effi-
cient way to notify the public
about government actions. Plus,
publication in the newspaper
ensures the notices are verifiable,
independent and permanent,”
Bordewyk said. “And yet the
newspapers in South Dakota are
keenly tuned in to the evolving
and transforming world of news
and information delivery.”
That is why you see newspa-
pers across the state using a vari-
ety of technology tools to deliver
news and advertising informa-
tion, Bordewyk said.
Newspapers are using web-
sites, social media such as Face-
book and Twitter, email and
other media to deliver news and
Many newspapers are even
sending an entire electronic repli-
cation of the printed newspaper
via email to readers. Bordewyk
points out that “electronic sub-
scriptions” are becoming more
popular in particular among sub-
scribers who otherwise have been
hampered by slow delivery of the
newspaper via the Postal Service.
“This transformation in technolo-
gy will only continue,” Bordewyk
said. “However, I believe that
newspapers that do a good job of
providing local news, information
and advertising will remain the
go-to third-party provider for gov-
ernment public notices as well,
regardless of the delivery meth-
ods or technology evolutions.”
Bordewyk encouraged readers
wanting more information about
sdpublicnotices.com or the tech-
nology changes in news delivery
to talk to their local newspaper
