MoneyGram to return
money to eligible consumers
Attorney General Marty Jack-
ley announces that a settlement
has been entered with Money-
Gram International, Inc. (Money-
Gram), which makes certain
MoneyGram customers eligible to
receive funds back. MoneyGram
has agreed to the forfeiture of
$100 million, which the U.S.
Postal Inspection Service has for-
feited in order to return the funds
back to eligible consumers. The
agreements arose from Money-
Gram’s involvement in mass mar-
keting and consumer fraud caus-
ing tens of thousands of individu-
als to lose money from “advance
fee” schemes and similar scams.
Certain MoneyGram cus-
tomers will be eligible to get their
money back if they fulfill the fol-
lowing requirements:
•Sent money using Money-
Gram between January 1, 2004
and August 31, 2009.
•Sent money in the United
States or Canada to a payee in
the United States or Canada.
•Lost money because of fraud -
the customer must have been
defrauded into sending the
money i.e. promising victims they
would receive a large cash prize,
purchasing high-ticket items for
sale at discounted rates over the
internet and never receiving or
secret shopper scams.
Claim letters were mailed to
known victims in July of 2013. If
consumers did not receive a peti-
tion letter and you lost money as
a result of the MoneyGram
schemes between the designated
time frames from 2004 through
2009, and believe you are a vic-
tim, you will need to complete
and submit a Remission Form
that has to be postmarked no
later than November 15, 2013.
The following contact informa-
tion should be used to obtain the
Remission Form:
Toll-free number (United States
Only): 877-282-2610
http://gilardi.com/moneygram/
If you have any additional
questions regarding this agree-
ment, contact the Attorney Gen-
eral’s Consumer Protection Divi-
sion at 1-800-300-1986 or at con-
sumerhelp@state.sd.us.
Lady Coyotes start volleyball season strong
City council considers code enforcement officer
County commissioners discuss
Silver Valley Road addresses
Madison Mathews (8) sets up Rachel Buxcel during the Lady Coyote volleyball season opener in Wall on Tuesday, September 3. The Coyotes won, (25-17) (25-21) (25-27) (24-26) (15-9).
The Coyotes went to Gregory for a tournament Saturday, September 7 and came home with second place. They played Cody-Kilgore, NE first and won (25-10) (25-21). They then defeated
Gregory (25-23) (25-19). They met Bon Homme for the championship game and lost (13-25) (12-25).

The Murdo City Council had a lengthy dis-
cussion about the addition of a code enforce-
ment officer to the city’s staff.
Kelcy Iwan spoke to the board about the
nuisance of barking dogs in her neighbor-
hood. She said she has called law enforce-
ment and spoken to neighbors but the prob-
lem persists.
Esmay said a code enforcement officer
would be able to alleviate this problem, as
well as other city code violations, by having
the authority to ticket and fine residents who
are breaking city codes.
Charlie Buxcel joined the meeting to dis-
cuss complaints submitted about his trailer
court on the northwest side of town. Com-
plaints included the issue of a private dump-
ing area being visible and a trailer not follow-
ing the new trailer house ordinance.
Buxcel had been served a letter requesting
that the trailer be brought up to the city’s
ordinance qualifications. Jost said that the
trailer is a hazard as it needs to be leveled
and skirted. Buxcel told the board that the
trailer was manufactured in 1978. Waddell
told Buxcel to verify the date, because if it is
older than 1978 and since it does not have a
peaked roof, it would not be up to federal
code. The board gave Buxcel until the next
city council meeting to come up with a plan
for the trailer.
Other business discussed at meeting:
•Approved senior class request for white
washing
•Building permits for the following were
approved:
•Terry Van Dam: replace roof on
Catholic church and rectory and fix
basement wall
•Jill Abourezk: Post office repairs
•Bub Baker: tear down two houses
on Kennedy Avenue
•Agreed to auction hay from North Dam
by Karlee Moore
Silver Valley Road was an important topic
in the Tuesday, September 3 Jones County
Commissioners meeting. Register of Deeds
Terri Volmer approached the commissioners
about a new business needing an address on
Silver Valley Road. Volmer said this is an issue
because technically, the business needs a 911
address.
Volmer said naming the road Silver Valley
Road in the first place defeats the purpose of
the 911 street system and the street should be
a numbered street. She also said that techni-
cally, Bruce and Karen Royer do not live on
Silver Valley Road, although they have a Sil-
ver Valley Road address. Volmer told the board
that she would speak with Royer to make sure
he is okay with changing his address.
Other business discussed during meeting:
•Met with Legislative Audit to discuss dis-
crepancies
•Jones County hosts Fort Randall Reser-
voir meeting in November
•Request quote from Hildebrand for front
step at court house
•Changed mobile homes to real estate
instead of requiring that they be registered
•Adopted annual budget

Charlie and Susan Hamer
brought Brad Louder home last
Wednesday following his stay in
a Sioux Falls hospital for colon
surgery. He is recuperating at
home. Speedy recovery, Brad. Lill
Seamans visited Brad and
Dorothy Louder on Friday.
Visitors at the Eldon and
Esther Magnuson home last
week were: Marvin Feddersen on
Tuesday morning; Nelva and
Janet Louder on Wednesday
evening; Ray and Janice Pike on
Thursday afternoon. On Friday
Eldon and Esther went to Pierre
with Esther being the driver.
Eldon had a checkup and daugh-
ter Kathie Mason had therapy on
her knee. On Saturday Shelley
Boehmer and daughter Crystal
were there for lunch and spent
the afternoon. To sum it up,
Eldon is doing well following his
bout with pneumonia. Get well
soon, Eldon.
Brian and Linda Vik stopped
for a visit Sunday at the parental
Ray and Shirley Vik home. They
were on their way home to Bar-
nesville, Minn., after spending
time in Rapid City with Linda's
parents.
Alice Horsley and Rose Elrod
had supper together on Labor
Day at a Murdo cafe. Pastor Rick
called on Alice on Saturday and
Marcie Schmidt visited on Sun-
day of that week.
The suicide awareness
walk/run held at Hilger's Gulch
in Pierre Saturday was well
attended. From here Terri and
Tana Volmer took part. The Mag-
nuson's grandson, Tayler Owens,
came in first. His mom, Lori, was
also in the race.
Nelva and Janet Louder left
for the hills again on Friday. In
the afternoon they visited Sonny
and Evelyn Tornow over coffee
and cookies. That evening sons
Brian and Jay joined them for a
pizza supper at Don and Cara
Pearson's. Saturday morning a
bridal shower was held for their
granddaughter, bride-to-be Calli
Pearson, hosted by her brides-
maids and family members. All
enjoyed a brunch of egg bake,
assorted rolls, donuts, muffins,
fruits, etc. This was followed
with games, one of which took
lots of toilet tissue to see who
could make the best wedding
dress. Following that Calli
opened her very nice and useful
gifts. Bridesmaids Taylor Patrick
and Courtney Chester (Vivian
gals) came from their studies at
Vermillion and Brookings. There
for the shower was mom Cara,
Grandma Janet, Aunt Linda,
soon to be mother-in-law Julie,
other relatives and friends, plus
two more bridesmaids. Casey
Miller joined the guys and his
fiance Monica joined the women.
Calli had her bachelorette party
that evening (no grandmas or
moms allowed!). Sunday on the
way home Nelva and Janet went
through the Badlands – been a
long time since they'd been there.
There were lots of tourists and
lots of prairie dogs! Still a won-
derful sight.
Nelva and Janet Louder
stopped in Kadoka and visited
Dwight Louder and then to
Deanna Byrd's for a visit with
her and the Stone family, and
then home.
A Make-A-Wish fundraiser
was held at the Draper auditori-
um on Saturday evening. Unfor-
tunately Nelva and Janet Louder
were gone and Janet didn't get to
catch up with Amanda Henrichs,
who headed it up. So Janet will
try to find out more about it and
give a report next week. Aman-
da's siblings: Kayla and Jeremy
Hoag and girls, Jaime Schmidt
and friend Shawn, all of
Aberdeen; and Brady Schmidt of
Brookings were back for it and
spent the weekend with parents
Tony and Kim Schmidt.
Wanda Mathews traveled to
Minnesota last Friday to the
home of Troy and Jody Iverson
and boys. On Saturday she
watched grandson Mason play
his first football game. She
returned home Sunday evening.
Happy anniversary on Sep-
tember 14 to Alex and Jean
Freier and happy birthday to
Alex on September 17.
Rosa Lee Styles left Sunday
morning for Hill City to the home
of Larry and Jenette Styles. She
joined them for brunch and a
time of visiting. In the afternoon
she went to Rapid City to Jim
and Shellie Terwilliger's. There
she got in on a little rain and
hail. Later they went for pizza,
but it hadn't rained in that area.
She spent the night, kept a doc-
tor appointment on Monday and
then home.
David and Jill Venard's home
was the scene of a party/cupcake
war (no, they didn't throw them,
that's what you would think
though) on Sunday. They divided
into teams of two and they had to
have two kinds of cupcakes. The
teams were: Suzie Tucker and
Casey Fairbanks; Terri and Tana
Volmer; Katie Venard and Beth
Van Dam; and Jill Venard and
Lenae Tucker. Judges were: Don
and Mary Heib; David Venard;
Nick Van Dam; Jessie Tucker;
Dean Volmer; Jacey and Jadyn
Jensen. They judged on looks,
moisture, taste, etc. The winners
were Suzie and Casey. Not sure
what the prize was....cupcakes?
I'm thinking with husbands judg-
ing, you would have to pick your
wife's cupcakes, wouldn't you?
Following this all enjoyed a bar-
becue supper, but no one was
interested in dessert. Sounded
like a sweet afternoon.
Linda Kerns hit the "75" mark
on Monday, September 9. Happy
birthday, Linda.
Gene Cressy ended up in the
hospital in Pierre last week.
When they discharged him, he
and Carol stayed there for awhile
with daughter Patti. Ray and
Janice Pike visited them in the
hospital. Get well soon, Gene.
Just read in the Rapid City
paper this morning of the pass-
ing of former Draperite Paul
Styles, 75, of Whitewood. Paul
died Sunday. Paul was a class-
mate of Janet's back when. He is
the son of the late Harold and
Mary Styles. Our sympathy to
the family.
Bill and Ellen Valburg trav-
eled to Sioux Falls on August 27
where Ellen kept a doctor’s
appointment. They stayed the
night with Flying Farmer friends
Earle and Connie Geide at Hart-
ford, returning home the next
day.
Jeff and Kristi Vlietstra, Will
and Walker of Rapid City, and
Jeff ’s mother, Barb Vlietstra of
Stickney, spent Labor Day week-
end at the Valburg Ranch. Bill,
Ellen and Kristi attended the
Rust/Hullinger wedding on Sat-
urday night; the rest of the fami-
ly came in and joined them at the
reception. They all departed for
home Monday afternoon.
Bob and Marilyn Iverson were
Sunday dinner guests of Bill and
Ellen Valburg, celebrating Mari-
lyn’s birthday. Once again, she’s
the same age as Ellen.

Memories
Some golden daybreak the trump is going to sound and the dead in Christ shall rise first and we who are alive and remain shall be caught up to meet
the Lord in the air. Then: “We must all appear before the Judgment Seat of Christ; that every one may receive the things done in his body, according to
that he hath done, whether it be good or bad. Knowing therefore the terror of the Lord, we persuade men…” (II Cor. 5:10,11).
When I stand at the Judgment Seat of Christ And He shows me His plan for me;
The plan of my life as it might have been Had He had His way, and I see
How I blocked Him here and checked Him there And I would not yield my will,
Shall I see grief in my Savior’s eyes; Grief though He loves me still?
Oh, He’d have me rich, and I stand there poor, Stripped of all but His grace,
While my memory runs like a hunted thing Down the paths I can’t retrace.
Then my desolate heart will well-nigh break With tears that I cannot shed.
I’ll cover my face with my empty hands And bow my uncrowned head.
No! Lord of the years that are left to me I yield them to Thy hand.
Take me, make me, mold me To the pattern Thou hast planned.
—Author Unknown
May God give us the strength to redeem the time wisely. Only one life; ’twill soon be past. Only what’s done for Christ will last.
Two minutes with the bible
ly, after one summer persisted in
being extremely warm and not
cooling down much at night, we
broke down and got a big window
air conditioner. That made life a
lot simpler although we still
tended to turn the machine off at
night and open the windows.
At least two of our neighbors
had another way of dealing with
summer heat. They mostly lived
in their basements. Basements,
as you probably know, stay cooler
in the summer and warmer in
the winter due to being well insu-
lated by the dirt that surrounds
them outside. Both families that
routinely lived in their base-
ments had upper stories that
could be used but seldom were.
They had kitchen appliances and
sinks both in the basement and
on the next floor up. The second
generation tended to move
upstairs and install air condi-
tioners, but the older set was
completely content with living in
their basements and saw no real
need for change.
As a kid, I hung out in our base-
ment quite a bit on hot summer
days. We had a bed and chairs
down there although no kitchen
equipment. There was also a
good supply of books and maga-
zines. Sometimes my dog joined
me in enjoying the coolness when
I thought she was panting too
much and getting too warm out-
side. She learned fairly quickly
that it was nicer downstairs than
outside on hot days and was glad
to keep me company.
So, there you have the saga of
air conditioners and capacitors.
With fall and winter drawing
nigh, we may not have to worry
about either of those things for a
little while, but, if we do, I know
how to handle it. I’ll just call
Brian and have him come over.
He knows all about air condition-
ers and capacitors, and, better
yet, knows how to deal with them
when they go bad. I’ve added his
number to speed dial on my cell
phone. It’s comforting to have
help only a phone call away.
Capacitors are useful things to
have around. For lack of a good
one, for instance, your air condi-
tioner may hum and try to kick
in, but not be able to. As a result,
on a hundred-degree day like Fri-
day, (Okay, okay, it only got to 99.
Let’s not exaggerate.) your house
may be a bit uncomfortable at 85
to 88. If you sit very quietly
under a fan, that isn’t too bad. If
you exert yourself in any way,
though, you’re going to sweat and
maybe quite a bit.
It was therefore a relief when
Brian arrived with a new capaci-
tor, installed it, and got us going
again. Wife Corinne and I don’t
like it when it’s too hot inside,
but we can sort of deal with it.
Son Chance, though, may have
more trouble than we do since
heat affects his myasthenia
gravis and can cause it to flare
up. All of us, naturally, appreci-
ate cooler environs.
Capacitors, in case you aren’t
familiar with them, come in
many shapes and sizes. The one
Brian replaced was about the
size of a pop can although not
quite as tall and maybe a little
bigger around. It had little elec-
trical connectors on the top.
When Corinne asked what
repairs had been made, I told her
what Brian had told me about
the capacitor going bad. As I
expected, this didn’t actually
explain much of anything to my
frau since electrical widgets
aren’t her thing. It didn’t actual-
ly explain all that much to me
either except in a vague sort of
way. Later we looked capacitors
up and found they store energy
in an electric field and can stabi-
lize voltage and power flow. We
weren’t a lot wiser for this new
information either, but that does-
n’t really matter if we’re not in
the business of fiddling with elec-
trical circuits and the like which
I certainly am not. I leave that to
individuals who know how to
deal with such things without
getting themselves fried by stray
bolts of electricity. Suffice it to
say that a defective capacitor will
bring things to a halt, and a good
one will allow you to get on with
life.
What saved us somewhat on
Friday was that I reverted to my
childhood on Thursday night
when the air conditioner quit
working. I threw open all the
windows and let the cool night
air in. Naturally, we had to turn
out all the lights to avoid being
swarmed by those miniscule bugs
that can squeeze through the
screens, and there were a lot of
them about. We left a TV on for
Chance and a computer for me,
but the other lights went out.
Occasionally our viewing screens
got a little buggy, but I’d just
squish the suckers and go on.
Then, before the day heated up,
the windows were slammed back
shut.
As a kid, we didn’t even have
electricity, much less air condi-
tioning. After the arrival of elec-
tricity, we still went many years
without cooling machines. Final-

And forgive us our debts, as we
also have forgiven our debtors.
And do not lead us into tempta-
tion but deliver us from evil. [For
Yours is the kingdom and the
power and the glory forever.
Amen.’”] (Matthew 6:9-13
NASB).
The prayer called “The Lord’s
Prayer” is a great prayer. It is a
model for all of us, showing us
how we are to pray. In the
Gospel of Matthew, Jesus teach-
es the prayer as a part of his
Sermon on the Mount discourse.
Parallel to Matthew in the
Gospel of Luke, Jesus teaches
the prayer to His disciples in
response to their request: “Lord
teach us to pray as John taught
his disciples.”
Sadly, though, some folks do
not pray “The Lord’s Prayer” at
all, whether in church with
other believers or by them-
selves, because they revert back
to Jesus’ words in Matthew 6:7
where Jesus says, “And when
you are praying, do not use
meaningless repetition as the
Gentiles do, for they suppose
they will be heard for their
many words.” The writer of
Ecclesiastes states, “Do not be
quick with your mouth, do not
be hasty in your heart to utter
anything before God. God is in
heaven and you are on earth, so
let your words be few.”
I believe that what Jesus is
saying in Matthew 6 is that for
any prayer, if it is not from the
heart, it just becomes a mean-
ingless ritual. The repetition
can become more like a hypnotic
incantation. William Barclay in
his commentary on Matthew
states: “When a [person] begins
to think more of how they are
praying than what they are
praying, their prayer dies upon
their lips.” Sadly, some of us
probably put more heart and
meaning into the secular oaths
and pledges we repeat than we
do “The Lord’s Prayer” or any
prayer. Remember, prayer is
meant to change you, not God.
How often, like the Pharisee
praying in the temple, we tell
God how good we are and fail to
pray like the tax-collector who
beat his breast and said, “Lord,
be merciful to me, a sinner!”?
When you pray, whether it’s
the Lord’s Prayer or another
prayer, don’t just say the words
without thinking about them —
don’t hurry — mean what you
say. Pray from the heart. And,
when you pray at home or in
church, if you cannot think of
anything else to say to God, pray
the Lord’s Prayer, it’s a great
prayer because, like starting a
cold engine, it might just give a
kick-start to warm-up your spir-
it. Know that the Lord’s Prayer
is a great prayer that is to be
prayed always and is a model of
how you are to pray every day.
And, keep “Praying – Until –
Something – Happens.”
P.U.S.H. Amen.

Murdo Coyote • September 12, 2013 • 4
The August issue of the Ameri-
can Journal of Medicine has an
article that addresses how well
patients follow medicine instruc-
tions. The study was based upon
several criteria including checks
with the pharmacy to see if the
patient had even purchased the
medication.
All of the patients in the study
had significant hypertension,
high blood cholesterol or diabetes.
They had all been prescribed
medications that were evidence-
based for their condition. Specifi-
cally, the medications that they
had been prescribed had been
shown to stop the heart attack,
stroke and kidney disease that so
commonly follows hypertension,
diabetes and high blood choles-
terol. Specifically, when a medica-
tion has been tried and demon-
strated to improve a person’s sit-
uation, the medical term is called
“evidence-based” showing that
the medication works for the
given condition.
Yet the article in the American
Journal of Medicine demonstrat-
ed that of 37,000 patients fol-
lowed in this study only half were
taking their medication by the
end of the year the prescription
had been provided. Of those not
taking the medication as pre-
scribed, the medical term to
describe this group’s behavior is
“non-compliance,” a word that is
perhaps a little more respectful
but equally descriptive is non-
adherence. Call it what you will
this group of patients were taking
their medications only half of the
time.
This article called to mind a
gentleman I helped care for sev-
eral years ago. He was a 58-year-
old person who came to the clinic
because he had headaches. His
blood pressure was 240 millime-
ters of mercury over 140 millime-
ters of mercury. Note that a nor-
mal blood pressure is 120 over 80
or less. His blood pressure was
dangerously high. He was provid-
ed medication for pain to stop his
headaches and at the same time
was started on blood pressure
medication to get his blood pres-
sure down in the normal range.
This had to done over several
weeks time as too fast a drop in
blood pressure can cause a stroke
all by itself. He came back a week
later and his blood pressure was
better controlled, his medications
were adjusted slightly and a
month later his blood pressure
was normal. The gentleman had a
family with five children, two of
whom were in college.
He returned two months later
and his blood pressure was back
at 180 over 110. I inquired
regarding his sleep habit, his
headaches, his salt intake, the
stress level and he indicated that
none of these were a particular
problem. I then inquired about
his medications and he said that
he had stopped them. I inquired
as to why and he said he just did-
n’t believe in taking medications
long term. He felt that medica-
tions had side effects, were
expensive and they just weren’t
natural. I warned him that what
was not natural was his blood
pressure. I warned him that if he
didn’t take his medications as
prescribed, he was at a huge risk
for having a stroke at a young
age. I explained to him that one of
the uglier kinds of stroke is that
which affects the left side of the
brain and leaves the right side of
the body without movement. This
type of stroke is often associated
with the inability to speak. I
think in order to placate me, he
said yeah, yeah, yeah, he would
take his medications.
I didn’t see him for three
months and on this occasion
when he returned it was on a lit-
ter in the ambulance where his
stroke had already happened.
Unfortunately, it was a dense and
irreversible stroke just like the
one I had described to him previ-
ously. Cases like this make an
impression on a physician and
create an indelible memory. His
ability to walk and to speak or
use his right arm were lost. His
career as a farmer/rancher was
over. He could still communicate
by shaking his head in regard to
yes or no but he had no speech.
When I read the article in the
American Journal of Medicine, I
thought about this man. As it
turned out, he had stopped his
medication soon after his last
visit with me. To a series of head
shaking yes and no answers, he
indicated the excuses were just
what he said before. The medica-
tions were not natural and he did-
n’t want to take a medication long
term. As soon as his blood pres-
sure had gone down from the pre-
vious visit and his headaches
were gone, he stopped the med-
ication again.
The American pharmaceutical
industry is not perfect and its
motives for introducing a new
drug are frequently profit-direct-
ed with the hope that the medica-
tion will be effective for the given
condition being treated. But
when a new medication comes
out, there is always the first per-
son to take it. It is not until sever-
al hundred thousand have used
the medication for several years
that a good answer regarding the
safety and effectiveness of the
medication can be determined.
But even with medications that
are evidence based, generic and
cheap, some people like the gen-
tleman just described, won’t take
a medication for whatever reason
they conjure up.
It is my personal feeling that
the trust of our society for the
medical community is failing for a
variety of reasons. The point of
the article in the American Jour-
nal of Medicine was the difference
between the two groups of people
in the 37,000 that were studied.
One group did not take the med-
ications as prescribed. The other
group did. There was a 50 percent
increase in the rate of heart
attacks, stroke and kidney failure
in the group of patients who were
non-compliant (non-adherent). In
order for the evidence-based med-
ications that we have to work,
somehow our society has to
change the behavior of the half of
the population that will not take
a medication once prescribed.
Medications do not work in the
bottle. But they cut the rate of
heart attack and stroke in half
when taken as prescribed.

South Dakota Common Core
Standards: frequently asked questions
What are South Dakota’s
Common Core Standards?
South Dakota’s Common Core
Standards refer to a set of stan-
dards in the core subject areas of
English-language arts and math.
The standards provide a clear
and rigorous set of expectations
for what South Dakota students
(grades K-12) should know and be
able to do in each of these two
critical subject areas. The stan-
dards are shared by a number of
states.
How are they different
from previous standards?
South Dakota has had stan-
dards in various subject areas,
including English-language arts
and math, for many years. The
new standards in English and
math are different in that they
promote:
• Deeper understanding of the
key concepts students need to
succeed as independent thinkers;
• Students’ ability to apply
knowledge to real-world situa-
tions;
• Instruction that places more
emphasis on understanding and
application, as opposed to memo-
rization and test-taking
• Richer, more authentic types
of assessment
How were the new standards
developed?
The idea to develop a shared
set of standards among the states
began as a conversation among
the nation’s governors and chief
education leaders. A group of 45
states banded together to set con-
sistent, high quality expectations.
The standards were developed by
teams of teachers, researchers
and leading education experts
from across the United States.
Each partner-state chose whether
or not to adopt the standards.
When did South Dakota
adopt the new standards?
The South Dakota Board of
Education voted to adopt the new
standards in English-language
arts and math on Nov. 29, 2010.
When will implementation of
the new standards
take place?
Teachers across the state have
begun training on how to foster
the deeper levels of understand-
ing and higher-order thinking
skills needed of students under
the new standards. The stan-
dards should be fully implement-
ed in school year 2013-14, with a
new assessment to follow in 2014-
15.
What will the new assess-
ment look like?
The new assessment, based on
the new standards, will replace
the current Dakota STEP test.
The new test will incorporate
more short answer and construct-
ed response questions, as opposed
to the current status quo of most-
ly multiple choice questions. It is
also important to note that the
new assessment will be delivered
solely online, and districts are
already preparing for this transi-
tion.
Do students still need to
memorize math facts?
Yes. While the new math stan-
dards emphasize thorough under-
standing, (meaning students will
know how and why concepts
work) they will still require stu-
dents to perform simple calcula-
tions quickly and easily.
Does classic literature have a
place under the new English
standards?
Yes. While the new English-
language arts standards infuse
more informational text into stu-
dent reading, teachers will con-
tinue to teach literary classics as
they always have. The English-
language arts standards do not
limit reading to non-fiction but
suggest a balance between litera-
ture and non-fiction texts (for
example, the Gettysburg
Address), so students can build
knowledge and broaden their per-
spectives. This exposure to infor-
mational text will help students
be prepared for the type of read-
ing they will encounter in the
workforce.
Is there federal money
attached to the adoption of
Common Core?
The Common Core is not feder-
ally mandated, and South Dakota
did not receive any federal money
tied to adoption of the new stan-
dards.
I’ve heard that the Common
Core dictates curriculum for
local school districts. Is that
true?
No. The new standards in Eng-
lish-language arts and math are
not curriculum. School districts
still set their own curriculum, as
they always have. It’s important
to understand the difference
between standards and curricu-
lum; the two terms should not be
used interchangeably. Standards
provide the framework of expec-
tations for student knowledge
and skills. Curriculum details
how the standards should be
taught and includes resources,
materials and instruction.
In South Dakota, the state
Board of Education is charged
with adopting standards. Local
school districts have the authori-
ty to decide how to teach and
implement the standards, includ-
ing the selection of instructional
materials and practices.
Are there Common Core stan-
dards for history and social stud-
ies, or any other content areas?
There were no Common Core
standards developed for social
studies, only English language
arts (ELA) and math. Teachers
may choose to use some ELA con-
cepts, such as identifying an
author’s point of view and ques-
tioning that which is presented as
fact in a text, as part of their writ-
ing assignments in a history
class; however, the new standards
do not attempt to outline what is
taught in social studies classes.

pay big dividends.
The recommended moisture
content for short-term storage
(less than six months) of clean,
sound grains, with aeration avail-
able if needed, for the most com-
monly grown crops are as follows;
corn – 15.5 percent, millet – 10
percent, grain sorghum – 13.5
percent, soybeans – 13 percent,
non-oil sunflower – 11 percent, oil
sunflower – 10 percent. If storing
for longer than six months, lower
moisture contents are recom-
mended. Producers are advised to
check stored grain on a regular
basis for moisture migration,
insect activity, mold development
and increase in grain tempera-
ture.
With the large crop expected
this fall, many producers may
want to begin harvest when the
earliest crop is above the recom-
mended moisture content and dry
it to a safe level. Weather condi-
tions could also make harvesting
some of the crop at higher than
recommended moisture contents
necessary in order to avoid large
field losses.
When harvesting grains above
the recommended moisture con-
tent, the length of time the crop
can be stored without excessive
dry matter losses is a function of
the moisture content and the
grain temperature. This is called
allowable storage time (AST), and
is based on 0.5 percent dry matter
loss from kernels with normal
harvest damage. Kernels with
greater than normal damage will
spoil two to five times faster. At
higher moisture levels, AST
becomes critical. AST for shelled
corn at 20 percent moisture and
45 degrees F is 67 days, but at 60
degrees F, is only 28 days. A table
with AST’s for corn at various
moisture contents and grain tem-
peratures is available in the fact-
sheet, ExEx 1014, “Grain Drying
Guidelines for a Wet Fall Har-
vest”: http://pubstorage.sdstate.
edu/ AgBio_Publications/ arti-
cles/ExEx1014.pdf.
If grain needs to be stored
longer than the AST expected
with the moisture content and
temperature of the grain, you
have two choices, cool the grain
with aeration (if possible) or dry
the grain. True aeration occurs
with an airflow rate of one-tenth
cubic foot of air per minute per
bushel of grain (0.1 cfm/bu), and
will change the temperature of a
bin in 100 to 200 hours of fan
operation. Higher airflow rates
will accomplish the cooling in pro-
portionately less time (0.5 cfm/bu
= 20-40 hrs). The grain will only
be cooled to near the average out-
side air temperature during the
aeration period. Additional aera-
tion may be required as the out-
side air temperature drops, until
you reach an acceptable AST,
based on the grain moisture and
temperature. Airflow rates of 1
cfm/bu are required to accomplish
natural air drying, but this also
takes time, and spoilage is a risk
if grain is harvested at high mois-
ture levels.
It is important to recognize that
the smaller seeded crops like mil-
let, sorghum and sunflower pro-
vide greater resistance to airflow
than larger seeded crops like corn
and soybeans. The same fans and
grain depth that are used to aer-
ate corn or soybeans may not ade-
quately aerate the smaller seeded
crops.
How wet can your crop be and
still be safe to bin or pile on the
ground? The answer lies in the
AST, based on the moisture con-
tent and temperature of the grain
and how long before you will be
able to cool it or dry it to the rec-
ommended moisture content for
storage.

Overall crop
budgets down
A few weeks before harvest
South Dakota overall crop budg-
ets are showing lower returns for
2014, said Jack Davis, SDSU
Extension Crops Business Man-
agement Field Specialist.
“With lower commodity prices
and near constant costs compared
to the past four years, returns to
labor and management are pro-
jected below levels realized dur-
ing that time,” Davis said.
Davis said the projected prices
used in the budgets are lower
than 2013 projections. Projected
prices per bushel are corn at
$4.50, soybeans at $11.50, and
wheat at $6.50," Davis said.
Direct costs estimates per acre
are corn at $385, soybeans at
$195, and wheat at $195. Direct
costs as a percent of revenue are
57.6 percent for corn, 37.8 percent
for soybeans, and 50 percent for
wheat.
He explained that the two key
costs for each crop are seed and
fertilizer.
“Seed and fertilizer expense as
a percent of revenue are at 36
percent for corn, 20 percent for
soybeans, and 29 percent for
wheat,” Davis said. “As seed and
fertilizer costs are a high percent-
age of revenue, management
focus on these two items will pay
good dividends. Land and
machinery costs are also key cost
items in each of the crops.”
He explained that to achieve
the greatest return on farming
operations, management time
should be spent on cost control
and best management practices
of key input items.
“Fertilizer costs were the most
variable category from year to
year and prices have trended
lower for fertilizer during 2013,”
he said.
He added that corn on corn is
not as profitable as the past few
years.
“If a farm experiences yield
drags with continuous corn, crop
rotation may offer a profitable
alternative. The price and yields
used in these budgets favor soy-
beans also giving incentive to use
crop rotation,” he said.

First report of spotted-wing
drosophila in South Dakota
The first specimen of spotted-
wing drosophila (Drosophila
suzukii) was identified in South
Dakota on August 28 2013. The
specimen was collected in a vine-
gar trap set in Yankton County.
Trapping and preliminary identi-
fication was conducted by
Buyung Hadi, SDSU Extension
Eurban Entomology Specialist.
The identification was confirmed
by Paul Johnson, Professor of
entomology and director of Sev-
erin-McDaniel insect collection at
SDSU.
Spotted-wing drosophila was
first detected in California in
2008. Subsequently populations
of spotted-wing drosophila have
been detected in multiple states
in all parts of the country includ-
ing the Midwest.
“Unlike other vinegar flies that
are considered nuisance due to
their habit of laying eggs inside
cracked or damaged fruits, female
spotted-wing drosophila has ser-
rated ovipositor capable of laying
eggs inside healthy ripe fruits,”
Hadi said. “Consequently, devel-
oping larvae (small white mag-
gots) can often be found within
the harvestable fruits.”
Hadi said this is especially true
for raspberry, blueberry and
blackberry. Due to this, spotted-
wing drosophila is considered a
potentially damaging pest for
small fruit production.
SDSU Extension is currently
organizing a volunteer-based
trapping effort in collaboration
with fruit growers across the
state to assess the spatial distri-
bution of the potentially damag-
ing insect pest.

Terri Volmer’s building permit report for
August: 2.
While many families across
South Dakota have begun taking
the necessary steps to welcome fall
and winter, most of these decisions
probably revolve around kickoff
times and sporting events. Another
important aspect about planning
for the upcoming seasons is our
state’s unpredictable weather. As
excited as we may be for halftime
performances and cross country
meets, it’s more than likely that
Mother Nature may cancel more
than a few of our upcoming games
and activities.
As South Dakotans, we have all
come to accept our state’s ever-
changing weather as part of its
September is
National
Preparedness month
charm. From spring blizzards to fall
freezes and extreme heat to frigid
cold, the Great Plains is home to
some of nature’s most fascinating
and dangerous weather events.
After living in South Dakota my
entire life, it’s hardly surprising
when we find ourselves revving up
the snow blower in May or trick-or-
treating in snow suits in October.
I believe it’s important for all of
us to take the time to prepare and
educate friends and family on the
possible dangers we may face due to
weather. September is FEMA’s
National Preparedness Month,
which aims to educate all Ameri-
cans and help prepare families for
any type of emergency. Although
preparedness is highlighted this
month, it’s important to remember
that preparedness needs to be part
of our daily lives.
It’s possible that your family
may not be together when a disas-
ter strikes, so make a plan to figure
out how everyone will get to a safe
place and how you will contact one
another. Make sure to also figure
out emergency plans at work,
school and other locations where
your family spends time. There are
many effective resources to help
your family prepare for severe
weather and emergencies, includ-
ing the South Dakota Department
of Public Safety and your local
emergency manager.
Take time this month to build an
emergency preparedness plan if
you don’t already have one and
then go over and practice your plan
with your loved ones. For more
information about how to make an
emergency plan and ways to stay
informed in your community, visit

tion.
From the U.S. House
• Representative Kristi Noem •
From the U.S. Senate
• Senator John Thune •
What if I told you that if you
graduated from college in the last
10 years, in addition to your stu-
dent loan debt, you might owe the
federal government over $300,000?
If you’re in your 20s and 30s, that is
unfortunately your reality.
For too long, politicians in Wash-
ington have focused on passing bills
that put a Band-Aid over fiscal
problems in the short term, while
ignoring the long-term conse-
quences for future generations. The
result is a massive fiscal gap that
will place crippling financial bur-
dens on today’s young people.
From a personal standpoint, I
worry about how the rising debt
burden will affect my two daugh-
ters, who recently graduated col-
lege and entered the workforce. The
record levels of debt we’re amassing
could lead to a fiscal crisis in the
coming decade, as the nonpartisan
Congressional Budget Office has
warned. This would harm economic
growth, destroy jobs, and drive up
interest rates, which would make it
more expensive for young people to
borrow money for college or buy
their first home.
That is why I recently introduced
a bill along with Senator Tim Kaine
(D-Va.) to bring more transparency
to the budget process and ensure
that members of Congress and the
administration have the informa-
tion they need to prepare for future
budget realities.
The Intergenerational Financial
Obligations Reform (INFORM) Act
would provide for detailed, long-
term analysis of how major legisla-
tive policies, economic advance-
ments, and congressional budget
decisions would impact future gen-
erations. This approach, which is
known as a generational account-
ing and fiscal gap analysis, would
examine the full scope of the gov-
ernment’s obligations, present and
future, and then analyze the effects
those obligations will have on cur-
rent and future generations. It
would also require the president to
provide a detailed accounting of
how the administration’s budget
and policy recommendations would
affect young people down the line.
Under current practice, Con-
gress is typically only provided with
information about the budgetary
impacts of spending and policy deci-
sions over the next 10 years. Our
bill would allow Congress and the
administration to look at the effects
that changes in the economy,
spending, or taxes would have on
Americans 20, 50, or even 75 years
down the road.
Fortunately, if we act now, we
can stop this spiral of spending and
debt and start building a more sta-
ble financial future. Politicians in
Washington have spent enough
time kicking the can down the road.
It’s time to stop mortgaging young
Americans’ futures and start being
accountable for our actions.

Toby Qualm, Legislative Audit, met with
the Board to give his findings of the audit
of Jones County for the 2011 and 2012
years.
The Board discussed a cement work
quote for new steps and sidewalk at the
front entrance to the courthouse. The
Board agreed to have Hildebrand Con-

Terri Volmer, Director of Equalization/
Register of Deeds, met with the Board to
discuss 911 addressing problems (errors
in address assignment) and putting all
mobile homes older than 1974 on a real
estate schedule rather than registering
as mobile homes. The Board agreed that
she should put them on as real estate.
The Board discussed samples of Veter-
an’s Memorials presented to the Board
by Gary Sletto. The Board came to no
conclusion at this time.
At 10:00 a.m. a budget hearing for the

I would like to thank everyone
who sent me cards and called
while I was in the Sioux Falls
hospital.
Bradley Louder
My 80th birthday was definite-
ly a huge success of celebration.
Thank you to everyone for the
many cards and well wishes,
especially to all the Peacock kids
out there! Also to Marilyn for the
apple pie, Dixie for the birthday
cake and Susie for the warm
caramel rolls. So now I may have
to go get a little larger pair of
pants! Many thanks all.
