The pumpkin contest winners are
Candy corn
Every Halloween, bags of tri-
angle-shaped, yellow, orange and
white candies fill trick-or-treat
bags all over the country. And
there are many bags to fill:
According to the National Confec-
tioners Association, candy compa-
nies will produce nearly 35 mil-
lion pounds of the corny candy
this year. That's about nine bil-
lion individual kernels of corn.
Candy corn is a sweet replicate
of dried corn kernels. It’s consid-
ered a “mellow cream,” a name for
a type of candy made from corn
syrup and sugar that has a
marshmallow-like flavor.
Although candy corn tastes rich,
the traditional variety is most
popular in the fall -- especially
around Halloween. In fact, Octo-
ber 30 is National Candy Corn
Candy corn has been around
for more than a century. George
Renninger of the Wunderlee
Candy Company invented it in
the 1880s. It was originally very
popular among farmers and its
look was revolutionary for the
candy industry. The Goelitz
Candy Company started making
candy corn in 1900 and still
makes it today, although the
name has changed to the Jelly
Belly Candy Company.
Although the recipe for candy
corn hasn’t changed much since
the late 1800s, the way it’s made
has changed quite a bit. In the
early days, workers mixed the
main ingredients -- sugar, water
and corn syrup -- in large kettles.
Then they added fondant (a
sweet, creamy icing made from
sugar, corn syrup and water) and
marshmallow for smoothness.
Finally, they poured the entire
mixture by hand into molds, one
color at a time. Because the work
was so tedious, candy corn was
only available from March to
Today, machines do most of the
work. Manufacturers use the
“corn starch molding process” to
create the signature design. A
machine fills a tray of little ker-
nel-shaped holes with cornstarch,
which holds the candy corn in
shape. Each hole fills partway
with sweet white syrup colored
with artificial food coloring. Next
comes the orange syrup, and
finally, the yellow syrup. Then
the mold cools and the mixture
sits for about 24 hours until it
hardens. A machine empties the
trays, and the kernels fall into
chutes. Any excess cornstarch
shakes loose in a big sifter. Then
the candy corn gets a glaze to
make it shine, and workers pack-
age it for shipment to stores.

Jack O Lantern
The word Jack O Lantern was
first used to describe a mysteri-
ous light seen at night flickering
over marshes. When approached,
it advances, always out of reach.
The phenomenon is also known
as will o the wisp and ignis fatu-
us (foolish fire). In pop legend it is
considered ominous and is often
thought to be the soul of one who
has been rejected by hell carrying
its own hell coal on its wander-
In Ireland, where Halloween
began, the first jack-o’-lanterns
weren’t made of pumpkins. They
were made out of rutabagas, pota-
toes, turnips, or even beets! There
is an old Irish legend about a man
named Stingy Jack who was too
mean to get into heaven and had
played too many tricks on the
devil to go to hell. When he died,
he had to walk the earth, carrying
a lantern made out of a turnip
with a burning coal inside. Stingy
Jack became known as “Jack of
the Lantern,” or “Jack-o’-
From this legend came the
Irish tradition of placing jack-o’-
lanterns made of turnips and
other vegetables in windows or by
doors on Halloween. The jack-o’-
lanterns are meant to scare away
Stingy Jack and all the other
spirits that are said to walk the
earth on that night. It wasn't
until the tradition was brought to
the United States by immigrants
that pumpkins were used for

Word was received that former
Draperite Eva Louder, 99, passed
away Sunday evening at the
Rapid City Regional Hospital.
Services are pending. Our deepest
sympathy to the family.
Alice Horsley visited Julia
Broecher Tuesday afternoon of
last week.
I goofed in my article last week
about the Miller siblings getting
together in Des Moines. I said the
only sibling not there was Doug,
but I'm wrong. There is one more
that wasn't there – Melanie
Stampe. It wasn't intentional.
Lila Mae Christian, Willard
and Florence Christian traveled
to Chamberlain on Friday. They
picked up Edna McKenzie and
took her out for lunch. Back to her
apartment later for more visiting.
Our sympathy goes out to the
family of former Vivianite Bob
Wendt who passed away in
Wyoming of a heart attack doing
what he liked doing – hunting.
Most of you know his brother,
Lonis, of Vivian. He also has a
brother, Bill.
Dorothy and Darin Louder
went to Rapid City last Wednes-
day. Dorothy kept an appoint-
ment. On their way home they
stopped in Kadoka and visited
Dwight. Darin also visited Dean-
na Byrd. On Sunday Brian and
Megan Hamer and family brought
a carry in dinner to Grandma
Dorothy's. They had spent the
hunting weekend with parents
Charlie and Susan Hamer at Ken-
nebec and were on their way home
to Rapid City.
Lill Seamans, Bev Nies, Helen
Louder, Linda Brost, Esther Mag-
nuson and Janet Louder listened

read to them last Thursday and
then, as usual, went for coffee.
Nelva and Janet Louder spent
Friday in Pierre. They went to
Parkwood in the afternoon where
they got in on their birthday party
and had pumpkin pie and coffee.
They visited with Mona Sharp,
Ken Halligan, Darline Fuoss, Lil-
lian Severyn, Grace Weber and
many others. Also, Janet's friend,
Bessie Husband, was there visit-
ing. They also went to Kelly's and

her a happy birthday. Her birth-
day was Saturday. They also saw
Alex and Jean Freier.
Dean and Kristina Vik of
Jamestown, N.D., are the proud
parents of a baby boy born Satur-
day, October 26. The lil guy has
been names Forrest. First time
grandparents are Brian and
Linda Vik of Barnsville, Minn.
Great grandparents from S.D. are
Hilary and Vivian Cole from

Vik. This makes seven great
grandsons and three great grand-
daughters for the Viks. Congratu-
lations to all.

met Emil Magnuson and friend
Freda of Rapid City for lunch in
Murdo last Wednesday.
Shellie Terwilliger arrived at
Rosa Lee Styles on Wednesday
and spent the night. On Thursday
Margie Boyle joined them. The
boys, David and Robert, were also
there. I understand they were in
charge of cooking the meat for
Rosa Lee's birthday supper. Shel-
lie spent Thursday night also. The
dessert Margie made was very
good as she dropped some off for
Nelva and Janet Louder.
The Vivian firemen's feed was
held Saturday evening; a nice
night. The guys do the cooking,
but some of the women help serve.
The guys doing the cooking sound-
ed good to me. Gerald and Wanda
Mathews and Nelva and Janet
Louder attended and then went
back to the Louder's for cards and
dessert. Others from here that
attended the feed were: Paul Sea-
mans; Helen Louder and Lila Mae
Christian; Larry Mathews and
Flo; Herb and Arlene Pitan. I
think some of the farmers couldn't
make it as they were busy with
Jason Seamans of Rapid City
arrived at mom Lill's house Fri-
day evening to spend the weekend
and help with the fall yard work.
Also there overnight Friday were
Lill's sis, Bernice and Jerry Klein

grandson Braxton in person,
although they've seen lots of pic-
tures. They headed home to get
here before a storm and arrived
home Sunday night. Monday was
Ray's ? birthday but I don't think
they celebrated. I think they were

There Is No Difference
by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Twice in the Book of Romans, once in Romans 3:22,23, and once in Romans 10:12,13, God uses the phrase, “There is no difference.”
First it is used in connection with the guilt of man. Religious Jews, as well as godless Gentiles; cultured moralist, as well as degraded savages, are
proved guilty before God.
In the first three chapters, their privileges and responsibilities are fully discussed, and their arguments are carefully considered. Then comes the awful
Must we not all bow our heads in shame and admit that the indictment is true? Must we not acknowledge that our condemnation is just? There may,
indeed, be differences as to the nature or the degree of our sins, but in this there is no difference: that we all have sinned. And a just and holy God must
condemn sin.
It is refreshing, however, to find the phrase used a second time in connection with salvation. Again religious Jews as well as godless Gentiles are includ-
ed, but this time, how gracious the declaration!
In the matter of sin, God cannot be partial. He cannot be lenient with certain classes or groups whose advantages have been greater. All have sinned,
and all must stand condemned.
But neither does He show partiality in the matter of salvation. The rich or cultured or religious are not preferred before others. The illiterate or immoral
are not excluded. The Law condemns all, but Christ died to save all, that we might be “justified freely by His grace.”
Friend, are you saved? Are you right with God? You can never hope to be accepted if you approach Him in your own merits, but if you come in the
merits of Him who bore your sins, you cannot be turned away. “FOR THE SAME LORD OVER ALL IS RICH UNTO ALL THAT CALL UPON HIM,
Two minutes with the bible
“Meaningless! Meaningless!”
says the teacher. “Utterly mean-
ingless! Everything is meaning-
less.” Ecclesiastes 1:2
Ecclesiastes is one of the most
difficult books in the Bible. Some
have wondered if it actually
belongs in the Bible because it
seems there are littler no com-
forting parts to its message.
It seems to be more about scep-
ticism and despair than about
certainty or hope.
When we look at this book
within the whole Christian Bible,
we begin to appreciate the role
that it can play. Ecclesiastes in
general and this verse in particu-
lar underscore the futility --- the
meaninglessness --- of life lived
apart from a relationship with
Him who is the Creator and
Ecclesiastes describes life as it
is lived outside the covenant God
made with His people. The
covenant gave God’s people their
identity and shaped their whole
outlook on life. Apart from it,
their lives did not have any
meaning or purpose.
The rest of the Bible makes
abundantly clear where meaning
and purpose and hope are to be
found. These Gospel themes are
to be found in and with God who
would not let us go our own aim-
less way, but who instead went to
extraordinary lengths to accom-
plish our rescue in the life, death
and resurrection of His own Son.
The covenant without which
life is meaningless is anchored in
God’s promise of a new covenant,
a promise He kept at the cross
and empty tomb and one that HE
seals in the water of Baptism and
in the Body and Blood of Christ
shared in the LORD’S SUPPER.
Such a covenant - a covenant
that God has kept - gives not only
meaning but abundant life as
well as Eternal Life.
We pray: Almighty God, the
meaning and purpose of our lives
comes as a gift from You. Keep us
in Your care and keep us mindful
of the hope that is our in Jesus
Christ. Amen.
Life without Christ is without meaning

CHS Foundation contributes
to South Dakota blizzard relief
The CHS Foundation will con-
tribute $100,000 to the South
Dakota Rancher Relief Fund to
assist livestock producers in the
aftermath of a devastating bliz-
zard earlier this month.
“Ranchers across western
South Dakota suffered significant
loss of cattle, sheep and other
livestock as a result of this storm,
the vast majority of which is not
covered by insurance or other pro-
grams,” says William Nelson,
president, CHS Foundation.
“Through this contribution, we
hope to alleviate some of the cost-
ly storm affects and support these
producers in restoring their lives
and livelihoods.”
The South Dakota Rancher
Relief Fund, which has been
endorsed by Gov. Dennis Dau-
gaard, is administered by the
Black Hills Area Community
Foundation in cooperation with
the South Dakota Association of
Cooperatives, South Dakota
Stockgrowers Association, the
South Dakota Cattlemen’s Associ-
ation and the South Dakota
Sheep Growers Association. Its
goal is to directly benefit livestock
producers impacted by the bliz-
In addition to the contribution,
CHS is working directly with its
affected producer customers in
the region to identify short- and
long-term needs for feed and
other assistance.
Change clocks, check smoke alarms
Daylight Saving Time ends
this weekend, and State Fire
Marshal Paul Merriman asks
South Dakotans to check their
smoke alarms while they change
their clocks.
Daylight Saving Time officially
ends at 2 a.m. on Sunday morn-
ing. That’s when clocks are set
back one hour.
“When you go around the home
changing the clocks, it only takes
a few seconds more to make sure
your smoke alarms are working,’’
Merriman said. “This is a good
time to push that test button, and
if necessary, change the batteries.
In the event of a home fire, smoke
alarms can be the difference
between a tragic death or sur-
vival for you and your family.’’
With the arrival of November,
it isn’t too early to begin talking
about fire safety during the holi-
days, Merriman said.
“Holiday lighting, the use of
candles, increased cooking activi-
ty in the kitchen, all those things
illustrate the spirit of the holiday,
but they also increase potential
for fires and fire deaths during
what should be a season of cele-
bration,’’ he said.
It’s also a good time for a fami-
ly conversation about fire safety,
how to leave the home in the
event of a fire and how to main-
tain or restore contact with other
family members during and after
the fire.

With a psychology degree in mind, Waldron plans to attend SDSU
By Skyler Miller
Day-to-day you’ll see Mikayla
Ann Waldron wearing cheetah
print clothing or anything from
Buckle. You’ll also see her partici-
pating in cheerleading, volleyball
and track, all of which she has
participated in for four years.
Mikayla’s hobbies include hang-
ing out with friends, stretching
and jumping for cheer, gymnas-
tics and shopping.
Benchwarmers rates as her
favorite movie, Sandra Bullock
her favorite actress and America’s
Next Top Model and Catfish are
first choices when she takes time
to watch TV. When Mikayla is not
watching TV, she likes to read the
Pretty Little Liars series. She
gets angry when people complain
a lot, start drama for no reason
and act lazy.
Mikayla admires her parents
because “They have taught me so
much about life.” The biggest les-
son she has learned is to “Stay
strong and keep trying no matter
what, and that hard work pays
off.” Both lessons she learned
from her parents and cheer coach
Maribeth Trumbo.
Considering favorite memories
of high school, she chose hanging
out with friends and making
great memories. Thinking about
the time after graduation, she
thinks she will miss most “not
being able to see my classmates
and family every day and being in
Being a wise senior, she advis-
es underclassmen to “Study hard,
do your best and don’t be lazy!
Make the most of high school
because it goes by too fast.” Her
main regret of high school is not
trying harder in school and in
doing homework.
Mikayla’s biggest fear is fail-
ing, needles and losing one of her
loved ones. When choosing the
least important among money,
fame and power, she said she
could care less about power
because she is not one to control
people. Choosing the most impor-
tant from being popular, accom-
plishing something or being
organized, she would accomplish
something because she wants to
do something with her life.
In her future, Mikayla said she
would like to have a steady job
and a family. She plans to study
psychology at SDSU after gradu-
ation and hopes to find a job. In
April, Mikayla hopes to take her
cheerleading to the college level
when she tries out for a position
on the All-Girl Cheer Squad.
Mikayla’s family, whom she
values the most, consists of her
parents Lori and Mike Waldron
and siblings Sage and Dusty.
Journalism students earn Jostens 2013
National Yearbook Program of Excellence award
By Mikayla Waldron
Jostens, the leading producer of
yearbooks and student-created
content, announced that Jones
County’s yearbook program has
been named a 2013 Jostens
National Yearbook Program of
Excellence. The National Year-
book Program of Excellence des-
ignation recognizes dynamic
school yearbook programs. The
program recognizes yearbook
staff and advisers who create
engaging yearbooks for their
school communities.
The Jones County award win-
ning yearbook program was led
by Emiley Nies, Gus Volmer,
Ryan Kirscher, Nicki Kell, Janna
Glaze, Paige Venard, and Becky
Bryan under the direction of
Margie Peters.
Jostens’ National Yearbook Pro-
gram of Excellence Awards are
presented twice a year—in May
for yearbooks delivered in the
spring and in September for year-
books delivered in the fall. The
Award was presented to Jones
County yearbook program for
achieving the defined criteria in
each of three following categories:
creating an inclusive yearbook,
generating school engagement
and successfully managing the
yearbook creation process. The
Jones County yearbook program
received a plaque and a banner to
display in school.
Founded in 1897, Jostens has
produced school yearbooks for
over 60 years. Schools rely on
Jostens and their local Jostens
representatives to provide a com-
bination of journalism education
and technology tools to deliver a
learning experience that helps
students develop skills in journal-
ism, photography, writing and
design, leadership and business
while creating the permanent
record of the school year.
Adviser Margie Peters, retiring rep. Monte Rougemont, Kaylen Larsen,
Mikayla Waldron, new Josten's rep. Melissa Storley, Skylar Green hold
the new banner for winning their second national award.
Juniors/Seniors attend
college fair at T.F. Riggs
by Skylar Green
On Monday, October 21, jun-
iors Cody Hight, John King, Shel-
by Bork, Shayla Moran, Allison
Green, Rachel Buxcel, Carol
Drayer and Kalli Hespe and sen-
iors Skylar Green, Kaylen Larsen
and Travis Grablander attended
the college fair in Pierre. Several
colleges were at the fair and wel-
comed the students eagerly.
When the students first
arrived they were given the
opportunity to sign up to win
scholarships and a free iPad.
From there they looked at college
booths that they were interested
in and received information. Most
of the college reps gave the stu-
dents information on the majors
they were interested in and a look
at the expenses. They also had
college visit days available.
The students even had the
chance to talk with recruiters
from the National Guard, Army,
Marines and Air Force. “All of the
college reps recognized me as an
Eagle Scout. They explained it
could give me a few perks other
people couldn’t get, and also how
important it is to be an Eagle
Scout,” said senior Travis Grab-
lander. The students were able to
walk around and visit with col-
leges for an hour.
As promised by Counselor
Lutz, the students along with bus
driver Del Brost, made a stop at
McDonald’s on the way home.
New entrepreneurship class offers more CTE experiences
by Kaylen Larsen
The new school year brought
along many new things. Along
with new faculty members, a new
class has also been added. This
class, called Entrepreneurship
Experiences, is taught by Carmen
Miller. Seniors Jackson Volmer,
Carole Benda and Kaylen Larsen
are enrolled in the class.
All the materials for this
course are new, and it is sort of an
experimental class since the
school has never offered it before.
It is aimed more towards seniors
and helps them get prepared for
post-high school life.
This class qualifies for a
Career & Technical Education
(CTE) class. Miller and Jody Git-
tings attend classes and meetings
since they are CTE certified
teachers. A CTE certificate is usu-
ally held by a teacher who has
previously completed classes and
has work experience in the area.
These classes have more hands-
on and outside-of-classroom work
The class presently is compet-
ing in a Big Idea Competition
where each student must come up
with a business idea. Volmer’s
idea is to open a grain cleaning
business around the Jones Coun-
ty area. Benda hopes to open a
childcare facility from her home
called Carole Cares. Kaylen’s idea
is to start her own photography
business called Captured by
Kaylen Photography. The con-
test’s deadline is October 31. The
students are eager to find out if
their ideas will be chosen after
they send the entries to
Stacey Booth, who is also trying the new class, joins Carole Benda, Jack-
son Volmer and Kaylen Larsen on Wednesdays to discuss the projects.
Coyotes end season with tough New Underwood loss followed by big Lyman win
by Skyler Miller
The Coyotes faced the New
Underwood Tigers in a hard hit-
ting, fast paced game. Both teams
came out ready to hit and ready
to score. The Tigers took an early
lead, but the Coyotes started to
make their way back into the
game; however, they ran into a
problem when both quarterbacks
were injured so freshman Dalton
Kinsley stepped into the position.
Coach Sealey said, “We had a
rough night at quarterback, but
we stayed positive and kept work-
ing throughout the game.”
On offense, Skyler Miller led
the Coyotes with 134 yards rush-
ing and a touchdown, Chad John-
son added 60 yards and a touch-
down, Connor Venard 22 yards
and a touchdown, and Dalton
Kinsley 21 yards and a touch-
Defensive leaders were Miller
with 12 tackles, Venard with 10,
John King with 7 and two sacks
and Cody Manke with two sacks.
Preparation for the week was
anything but ordinary. With the
cold, wet weather, the Coyotes
were driven indoors for practice.
Senior Clayton Evans said, “It
was weird practicing indoors,
especially when we wore our hel-
mets indoors.”
The Coyotes faced off against
their rivals, the Lyman Raiders,
for the last game of the season. In
a Coyote offensive showcase, the
team won 56-20. Unfortunately
the Coyotes missed the playoffs
by three seeded power points, so
the Thursday night game marked
the end of the season for the Coy-
otes. Seniors Miller, Johnson,
Greydon Shangreaux, and Clay-
ton Evans went out with a big
home win. “It was a great game to
finish on and a huge game for our
seniors,” said Coach Sealey.
On offense, Miller led the Coy-
otes with 158 yards rushing and
two touchdowns, Johnson added
104 more, Wyatt Weber provided
82 yards and a touchdown, and
Dalton Kinsley gave the Coyotes
20 yards and a touchdown.
Defensively, Miller led with 13
tackles and an interception
returned for a touchdown.
Venard, the next leading tackler
had 9, and Weber and Hight both
provided another 7 tackles a piece
while Dalton Kinsley pulled down
an interception.
It was a short, but memory
filled year for the Coyotes. As the
team says good-bye to three sen-
iors, they look forward to when
new players will step up into
empty positions and hope for a
bright future.
Parents and families get banners and recognition during the last football
game against Lyman.
Region student council meeting fills auditorium with eager leaders
by Skyler Miller
Capital Region Student Coun-
cil met in Murdo for their annual
gathering. The schools included
were Jones County, Stanley
County, Lyman County, Kadoka
Area and Pierre. With all the
schools in attendance, the num-
ber of students totaled over 100.
To start out the day, the schools
separated into four large groups
and participated in some fun ice-
breakers to get everyone familiar
with each other. Then the region
board planned many fun, leader-
ship building exercises that the
students all participated in, but
along with the exercises, the stu-
dents were able to participate in
some physical activities such as
dodge ball and tug-of-war.
The students were also
reminded by the president of the
South Dakota Student Council,
Mason Wenzel, that bullying has
a lasting effect on people and
were reminded about how real
the victims of bullying are. Wen-
zel said, “Kids who are bullied
online are nine times more likely
to commit suicide than kids who
aren’t, and in a world where sui-
cide is the number three killer
amongst teens, bullying doesn’t
All the students enjoyed the
region meeting this year. Junior
Dylan Kinsley said, “It was a lot
of fun this year, I wasn’t falling
asleep while there was a speak-
er.” Junior Madison Mathews, a
member of the region board, said,
“It was a lot like our high school
Olympics this year. It was way
more fun than it has been in the
past, and we planned on it being

on to leadership skills.
Cross country season
ends with great results
by Skylar Green
The team placed third at Wall

a bit nervous. As it was, I trusted
that he knew where he was going
and what he was doing so I
stayed fairly calm. He knew
where the rough spots were,
where he should speed up in case
the ground was soft and so on.
He did mention that his four-
wheeler was loaded in the back of
the pickup in case we got stuck
somewhere, but that didn’t hap-
pen. There were no problems
whatsoever. It was even a pleas-
ant day with sunshine and com-
fortable temperatures.
Ranch tours are nothing new to
me. Dad took me on many of
them when I was a kid, and I’ve
driven people around the place
myself. With Dad, he sometimes
drove on side hills that seemed a
little tippy to me. We never
tipped over so I guess he knew
what he was doing. He also drove
fairly fast and occasionally
bounced into a hole or over a
rough spot of some sort. He often
gave rides to visiting relatives
and friends when they wanted to
see the ranch. More than a few
times, those folks were getting
into more than they bargained
for and returned home with a
certain amount of relief. As I
said, Dad was a competent driv-
er, but some of his routes could
make a person nervous. I never
actually saw any visitors get out
of the pickup when they got back
home and kiss the ground in
relief, but some may have felt
like doing so.
One time, I made an older lady
fairly nervous. She had lived in
the area as a girl and had some
association with a sod house that
was still standing out south sev-
eral miles. It was in our neigh-
bor’s pasture, but he didn’t mind
On Friday, we took a dead-cow
tour of our river ranch. We lost
some cattle, you see, in the recent
blizzard, and those in the know
say those losses should be veri-
fied by a third party and pictures
should be taken. This is in case
there are disaster payments later
on. There might be some of those
if they ever pass a farm bill, if it
contains a disaster clause, and
various other ifs. Nevertheless, it
is good to be prepared in case
something useful happens. As a
result, Ted, Jim and I from the
ranch and neighbors Kenny and
Wade loaded up in the five-seater
pickup and took a drive.
Ted was our driver, and he
headed up the main road to the
border of our land. Then we went
along the railroad, through a
gate, and back into our pasture.
There was a road going easily
down to the bottom, but we didn’t
take that. Instead we went down
a dim trail along the fence line
and railroad a ways. From there
we crossed a very steep draw
that might give the normal driv-
er pause. It didn’t faze Ted so
down and up we went. From
there we followed ridges and
such, noting dead critters along
the way. Finally we arrived down
on the river bottom where most
of the deceased cows and calves
were, along the bluffs and anoth-
er fence line. We counted and
took pictures all along the way.
Then we hit a somewhat better
trail that wound around here and
there before getting back to the
main road for our return to
where we started.
Our route for this little junket
was by no means smooth. If Ted
hadn’t lived on the place for over
half a century, I might have been

A major function of healthcare
providers is the prediction of
what the future holds for an indi-
vidual’s general health and/or
mortality. Examples include pre-
dicting that a person has a much
better chance of getting well from
pneumonia if antibiotics are used
than if they are not. Therefore,
we give antibiotics to patients
with pneumonia predicting that it
will save their life. Healthcare
providers have learned that high
blood pressure is associated with
a markedly increased likelihood
of having a stroke. Therefore, we
prescribe medications to get a
person’s blood pressure down pre-
dicting lower blood pressure will
prevent a stroke. Multiple trials
done years ago demonstrated that
if a person’s blood pressure is
treated with medications, the
likelihood of a stroke is much less
than if the person’s blood pres-
sure is allowed to remain high.
As most people know, the lead-
ing cause of death in the United
States is heart attacks. While
heart attacks generally occur
later in life, in certain popula-
tions, such as those with heredi-
tary hypercholesterolemia, heart
attacks begin at age 20 and left to
their own resources most of these
individuals will have a mortal
outcome by age 30.
In the early 1950’s, the city of
Framingham, Massachusetts was
chosen as an example of cross-
sectional America. That commu-
nity was chosen as representative
of the average United States citi-
zen. The community itself agreed
to have a large selection of its
population analyzed every year
for free to determine the factors
that caused disease in America.
It didn’t take long to learn that
there were two obviously irre-
versible mortal factors. These
were the person’s gender and
their age. The older a person is
the more likely they are to have a
heart attack and being male
makes it more likely for a person
to have a heart attack. Early in
the Framingham study, factors
were discovered showing that dia-
betes, high blood cholesterol, high
blood pressure and smoking ciga-
rettes were the four major
reversible factors predicting that
a person would have a heart
attack in a given length of time.
As an example, a 45-year old
male, non-smoker, non-diabetic
with a blood pressure of 115/70
and LDL cholesterol of 90 and an
HDL cholesterol of 45, has a two
percent risk of developing heart
disease in 10 years. But that
same age gentleman with dia-
betes, being a smoker and having
a blood pressure of 160/90, and an
LDL cholesterol of 150 with an
HDL cholesterol of only 35, now
has a 27 percent chance of devel-
oping a heart attack by age 55.
That is Russian roulette with one
shell in four chambers.
There have now been a large
number of studies determining
how changing these risk factors
affects a person’s risk of heart
attack. Trying to analyze all of
these variables in the ways they
might be changed exceeds the
content of this column. But suf-
fice to say, it is now very clear
that smoking cigarettes, diabetes,
high blood pressure and high
blood cholesterol are modifiable
risk factors that medical or life-
style address of same will defi-
nitely lower a person’s risk.
In the past 20 years, another
risk assessment has been devel-
oped. Specifically, it is called the
calcium score. It is a special x-ray
that measures how much calcium
is deposited in the arteries of a
person’s heart. The computer
takes the x-ray images and adds
up the amount of calcium in the
person’s heart and delivers a “cal-
cium score.” I am very frequently
asked if this x-ray method has
any validity or is useful in man-
aging a person’s care. Sad to say,
once calcium deposits are present
in the person’s heart arteries, it
does not decrease in amount by
any intervention we are aware of
today. Note that this is very dif-
ferent than the Framingham
heart study data which tells a
person how they might reverse
their cardiac risk. If one gets a
calcium score of a given amount,
there is no way back and the
higher the calcium score, the
more likely the person is to have
a heart attack at sometime in the
predictable future. When patients
ask is there any benefit in getting
a calcium score done, the answer
is somewhat surprising. It turns
out that those individuals who
get a high calcium score have a
much better adherence to their
medication schedule than those
that do not. It is almost as if the
calcium scores makes the cardiac
risk more believable and people
who see that they have a high
score are more likely to take their
cholesterol, blood pressure, and
diabetic medications and to give
up smoking. But the calcium
score does not tell a person which
risk factors they have that
increase their risk.
Getting a person’s Framing-
ham score is remarkably easy. It
contains the person’s age, their
gender, their blood pressure, their
cholesterol level, their blood
sugar level and their smoking
status. One can go to the internet
and pull up “Framingham Heart
Score” and a calculator will be
provided to demonstrate the per-
son’s score and their likelihood of
a heart attack in the next 10
years. With that same calculator,
one can determine how the risks
are decreased by improving a per-
son’s blood pressure, cholesterol
or diabetic control.
The people that most need to
determine their Framingham
heart score are our 30-40 year old
males. The younger a person
addresses their coronary risk fac-
tors, the more benefit comes to
them on the longevity scale. If the
person still needs convincing in a
reality check, having a calcium
score done seems to be some ben-
efit in improving the patients
adherence to their medication
schedules and life style changes.
The Clinical View
• Dr. P.E. Hoffsten •
Calculating your risk
for heart disease
us looking at it. Anyway, to get to
the soddy, there was a fairly steep
draw that had to be navigated.
When I got to the brink of the
drop-off, my lady passenger said
in some alarm, “You aren’t driv-
ing down that hill are you?”
“Yep,” I replied and did so. She
held on pretty tightly to the arm-
rest but came through the ordeal
quite well. She then enjoyed tour-
ing the soddy which brought back
many pleasant memories of times
past. I think in the end she
thought it was worth the scare of
navigating steep hills to see what
she remembered from her youth,
but the poor gal did have some
tense moments.
I still smile at the couple that
decided to go cross country in a
pickup from our home place to
Horseshoe Butte which is some
five or more miles away. There
are long and easy ways to get
there, but this fellow knew of
some short abandoned trail he
wanted to use. It involved steep
hills, nasty inclines, a creek, and
other perils. Nevertheless, he
made it across okay and seemed
quite pleased with himself. His
gal was not as excited about the
trip as he was. I asked her if she
would like to make that same
journey another day some time in
the future. “Not in this lifetime!”
she replied with a shudder.
So, if you want to see some pret-
ty country, I’ll be glad to give you
a tour of the ranch. There’s a lot
of interesting stuff to see. I’ll try
to drive carefully and not scare
the wits out of you, but there are
no guarantees. If you feel particu-
larly brave some day, come for a
tour. It might be an outing you
won’t soon forget. You can tell
your grandkids about it.

The term, “out of the box” can
refer to different things, but there
can be similarities. A product that
is “out of the box” is considered
new, or at least unused. When
someone refers to thinking “out of
the box”, they generally mean
new ideas, or approaching things
in a new or innovative way. New
ideas are sometimes welcomed,
but often met with resistance,
which can be a good thing.
Obviously, not all new ideas are
good ones, and not worth pursu-
ing. Mankind has not progressed
to the point where we are today,
however, by doing things like
they’ve always been done. Since
the dawn of time, human beings
have relentlessly been searching
for better, quicker, simpler, easier,
more cost effective, etc., etc. ways
of getting things done.
At the recent SDSU Extension
Conference, a co-worker related
his experience upon returning
from college to propose the idea of
initiating no-till farming prac-
tices on the family farm. This
being 20+ years ago, the sugges-
tion was met with resistance, but
he was given the blessing to
experiment on a small portion of
the farm. It must have proven
beneficial as the entire farm is
managed no-till today.
Two different people, farms,
organizations, businesses, etc.
can try to implement the same
general idea, and one might suc-
ceed while the other fails. There
are certainly no guarantees,
which keep life interesting.
Most people cannot afford to
always be the innovator, whether
due to finances, time, talent, cre-
ativity, or whatever reason. There
will always be someone who is the
visionary, and the majority of the
time, the rest of us can take
advantage of their innovation to
make our lives better, quicker,
easier, etc.
As not everyone can be the inno-
vator, not everyone will adopt
every idea into their life, farm,
etc. We weren’t cut out of the
same mold, and a given practice
may not fit everyone, or at least
in the same way. At the same
time new ideas are being tested to
see if they will work, yesterday’s
ideas are being evaluated by peo-
ple to decide if they should be
Specific to farming, equipment
manufacturers, chemical compa-
nies, seed companies, University
Experiment Stations and Exten-
sion Services, farmers themselves
and others are continually testing
new ways of doing things. Farm-
ers who are considering adopting
these new practices, pieces of
equipment, chemicals, seed vari-
eties, etc. also need to think “out
of the box” to be open to trying
If you are having a problem
with some aspect of your farming
operation, or believe there could
be a better way to do something,
the first step might be to do what
researchers do, find out if anyone
else has worked on this. Good
sources of information can be
your local Extension Service,
agronomist, implement dealer,
etc. Proof that a new idea worked
for someone else may be enough
to convince you to try it. Keeping
an open mind is an important key
to success, along with enough
resistance to require evidence.

zard may be eligible for assis-
tance from the U.S. Department
of Agriculture. Under Secretary
for Farm and Foreign Agricul-
ture Services Michael Scuse
announced that help is available
through the Environmental
Quality Incentives Program
(EQIP), a conservation financial
assistance program. The storm
killed an estimated 15,000 –
30,000 head of cattle, but the
lack of a farm bill stops the Live-
stock Disaster Assistance Pro-
gram from kicking in and helping
since it expired in 2011 with the
last farm bill, according to Scuse.
“In terms of being able to provide
significant financial assistance,
we really need Congress to get its
job done by getting a farm bill
passed, and the bill includes a
livestock disaster assistance pro-
gram, but USDA will provide as
much help as our limited
resources allow,” said Scuse.
EQIP will help producers protect
water quality by disposing of
livestock carcasses, replacing
destroyed fencing and rebuilding
shelterbelts, along with other
conservation efforts. Producers
can sign up for the program
through November 15.
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
program 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 addition-
al forage acres after the report-
ing date, you have 30 days from
the date of your new lease or pur-
chase 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 dead-
line will be subject to a late filed
reporting fee.
Producers must annually pro-
vide the quantity of all harvested
production of the crop in which
the producer held an interest
during 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 deadline for reporting this
production is November 15, 2013.
Production reporting is required
for all 2013 crops on farms with
NAP coverage.

Opening of pheasant season
wasn’t the only new opening
around the area. Brothers, Joe
and Dan Grace, also opened
Murdo Tactical and Hunting, a
retail and consignment store.
The brothers are excited about
this new venture and have been
getting positive feedback from
people stopping in. Previously,
Dan Grace, served nine years in
the Army and did two tours to
Afghanistan. Younger brother,
Joe Grace, had been working as a
guide at the family hunting lodge
west of White River.
Besides selling retail and con-
signment items in the store and
online, Murdo Tactical and Hunt-
ing will also be selling hunting
licenses and cleaning birds or any
game that someone brings
through their doors. They also
provide taxidermy services.
Joe and Dan Grace are open to
suggestions about items they
should carry and said that
because of suggestions from cus-
tomers, they have realized how
much interest there is in fishing
supplies, and will also be carrying
fishing items.
Murdo Tactical and Hunting
are also waiting on their ship-
ment of guns, which was delayed
New hunting store opens
because of the government shut-
down. They have some ammo but
plan on getting more. Just like
with many of their items, there
will be both new and used guns
for sale.

eight, seven days a week right
now, but may shorten slightly
depending on the season.

Winter storm watches and warnings
Do you know what winter
storm watches and warnings
mean? If a winter storm watch
has been issued for your area,
hazardous winter weather condi-
tions like snow greater than six
inches in 24 hours, winds gusting
over 35 mph or visibility less than
a 1/4 mile is expected in the next
12 to 36 hours. A winter storm
warning means the conditions
listed for the watch exist. Try to
stay indoors during a blizzard. If
you must go outside to check on
animals or for another reason, be
sure to dress warmly in loose fit-
ting layers of clothing.
Wear heavy gloves to protect
your hands and heavy socks with
boots that will not absorb water.
Cover your mouth so that you
don’t breathe in freezing cold air
that can damage your lungs.
Keep your body dry and know the
signs of hypo-thermia and frost-
If you are caught outside, find
a dry shelter and cover all
exposed parts of your body. If
shelter is not available, prepare a
lean-to, wind break or snow-cave
for protection from the wind.
Build a fire for heat and to attract
attention if possible. Place rocks
around the fire to absorb and
reflect heat. Do not eat snow, it
will lower your body temperature;
melt it first.
Winter driving can be extreme-
ly hazardous at times due to poor
road conditions or reduced visibil-
ities from heavy or blowing snow.
Many winter deaths and injuries
can be attributed to people who
go outdoors during bad weather,
becoming stranded and venturing
away from their vehicle. To avoid
this, stay home, but if you need to
travel and become stranded, stay
inside your vehicle and wait for

October is the month of pink
ribbons. We see them on posters,
bumper stickers and even on the
cleats of professional football
players. We see them on flags,
windshields and on pins worn by
brave survivors and family mem-
bers fighting together. It seems
like we all know someone battling
breast cancer, and if we’re lucky,
we all know survivors as well.
They may be wearing pink tutus
and boas, but they walk for
awareness, they fight for research
and they join together during the
month of October to tell the world
they can do it, and they will.
Breast cancer is one of the
leading causes of cancer death
among women, and research
shows that one in eight women
will be diagnosed with breast can-
cer at some time during her life.
The good news is there have been
advances in research, technology
and early detection over the years
that have helped decrease the
Tough enough
to wear pink
number of breast cancer related
deaths. The month of October is
dedicated to research, awareness
and prevention and there are
always community events or
walks to show your support.
In May my staff participated in
the Susan G. Komen Race for the
Cure in Washington and we
became the third highest
fundraising team on Capitol Hill.
I was incredibly proud of our
team and even more proud of all
of the men and women that threw
on some pink and showed up to
support the thousands of women
around the nation that fight to be
around for all of life’s little mile-
We can all play a role in help-
ing beat breast cancer by increas-
ing awareness amongst the
important women in all of our
lives. Personally, I am blessed to
have an amazing mother, mother-
in-law and countless other female
role models that have helped me
through the years. They might
have been teaching me to tie my
shoes, sew on a button or helping
me make my first Thanksgiving

This month, hundreds of thou-
sands of families throughout the
country began receiving notices
that their current health insur-
ance coverage would be canceled.
Despite the president’s repeated
promise during the 2009 debate
on health care, “If you like the
plan you have, you can keep it,”
families throughout the nation
are being forced to abandon their
current coverage. This has
required many of them, scram-
bling under the weight of a loom-
ing individual mandate deadline,
to look to the national health care
exchanges for help.
Unfortunately, the tool that
many had hoped would be a
resource to aid them in their
health insurance search has
proven to be an epic failure. The
October 1st launch of the nation-
al health care exchange website,
healthcare.gov, was heralded by
the administration as a critical
component of ObamaCare that
would increase access to coverage
and expand the number of avail-
able options through a user-
friendly online website. Instead,
the highly-anticipated launch
was riddled with errors, long wait
times, and so-called “glitches.”
Despite the ongoing problems
with the website, the administra-
tion continues to claim that many
of these “glitches” are due to the
overwhelming traffic on the web-
site. Yet they have refused to say
how many Americans have actu-
ally enrolled in the exchanges
since the beginning of October.
In fact, in North Dakota, the
administration requested that
the state’s largest health insurer
refrain from publicizing the low
number of people that have
signed up for health insurance
through the online exchange. The
administration’s blatant attempt
to conceal the number of online
applicants illustrates how poorly
both the website and the law
were designed.
Even the administration’s
attempts to “fix” the website have
resulted in misinformation and
confusion. CBS News reported
that one of the most recent “fixes”
to healthcare.gov gives the wrong
pricing information for those who
want to browse the prices before
signing up. Everyone 49 and
younger gets a quote for a 27
year-old, while everyone 50 and
older gets a quote for a 50 year-
old. This poor planning and devel-
opment is a clear attempt to mis-
lead people before registering
The administration’s rollout of
healthcare.gov is symptomatic of
what we already knew about
ObamaCare, the law is not the
solution to our health care prob-
lems. According to a recent Wash-
ington Post-ABC News poll, 56
percent of Americans believe that
the website’s glitches reflect
greater problems with Oba-
maCare. On October 23rd, the
White House announced that it
would be delaying the individual
mandate for six weeks in order to
allow people more time to comply
with the law. While the adminis-
tration claims that the delay is
not on account of the website
glitches, it is clear that the law,
like the website, was not ready
for primetime and should be per-
manently delayed for all Ameri-
Website “glitches”
demonstrate why
ObamaCare isn’t
ready for primetime
dinner, but I knew they were
always there to guide my family
and hold us together. The power
and love the females in my life
have shown me will forever shape
my future. Everyone needs to
take a moment and recognize the
women in their lives because
every woman needs to know the
facts, and the fact is, every
woman is at risk of developing
breast cancer. I know I want to be
around for all of life’s little mile-
stones, and breast cancer aware-
ness is a big part of that.
I encourage all South
Dakotans to recognize this month
and put an extra effort into
spreading the word about breast
cancer. These women are aston-
ishingly brave and the month of
October sheds some light on the
issue, but more than anything it
gives them hope. Hope that they
can beat it, and the resolve to
pour more time and resources
into early detection and screen-

Although the federal govern-
ment resumed full operations
October 17, ramifications from
the three-week shutdown contin-
ue as various crop and livestock
reports are canceled or delayed,
said Kim Dillivan, South Dakota
State University Extension crops
business management field spe-
“Although the shutdown was
relatively brief, any interruption
of production and marketing
information provided by the Unit-
ed States Department of Agricul-
ture negatively impacts the deci-
sion-making ability of
researchers, analysts, producers
and consumers,” Dillivan said.
According to the USDA, the
federal government shutdown
prevented the agency from col-
lecting and analyzing agriculture
production and marketing data.
USDA agency websites were also
inaccessible during the shut-
down. Currently, the USDA is
assessing its data collection plans
and evaluating the timing of
upcoming reports.
The World Agriculture Supply
and Demand Estimates Report
reports world and domestic sup-
ply and demand for grains,
oilseeds, cotton, sugar and live-
stock products. Published month-
ly, the WASDE report for October
11 was canceled due to the shut-
down. The next scheduled release
date is November 8.
“The October WASDE report
cancelation is significant because
the report would have contained
updated production estimates for
corn, soybeans, and other crops.
Specifically, it would have used
crop yield estimates to project
production for the report. The
October WASDE report would
have also reconciled planted acres
to help clarify estimated harvest-
ed acres. Parties that rely on this
data may be forced to obtain esti-
mates from private sources,” Dil-
livan said.
Scheduled for release on the
same day, the USDA's Crop Pro-
duction Report was also canceled.
Its next scheduled release date is
November 8. Some information
will be in the November 8 Crop
Production Report that was origi-
nally scheduled for release in the
October report. This information
includes planted and harvested
acreage for corn, soybeans,
sorghum and sunflower.
The USDA canceled the Crop
Progress Reports for October 7
and 15. These weekly reports con-
tain valued and timely informa-
tion that is compiled from data
submitted mainly by FSA and
Extension personnel.
United States Export Sales
data provides one piece of

the strength of foreign demand
for U.S. grain and livestock prod-
ucts. This data is released every
Thursday, and should be avail-
able again soon. As of October 17,
the current data was not yet
Livestock and crop producers
will benefit from the re-opening of
the FSA website. It provides
information for producers regard-
ing the Conservation Reserve
Program, loan programs, crop
price and revenue support, and
insurance products. It also pro-
vides access to resources concern-
ing the farm bill.
The closure of FSA offices dur-
ing the time of the record-break-
ing blizzard in South Dakota also
resulted in a lack of guidance on
reporting of losses that will affect
any potential future disaster pay-
ments for these losses.
Livestock producers will also
welcome the re-opening of the
Risk Management Agency web-
site. In particular this website
provides livestock producers with
information regarding Livestock
Risk Protection and Pasture,
Rangeland, and Forage (PRF)
insurance products. An immedi-
ate concern for livestock produc-
ers is the PRF signup deadline of
November 5.
Dillivan said that the lapse in
federal funding also resulted in
the delay of several agricultural
estimates reports, including
broiler hatchery, cattle on feed,
chicken and eggs, dairy products,
livestock slaughter, milk produc-
tion, and turkey hatchery. These
reports will now be released in
late October or early November.
