I want to thank everyone in the community for
the support I received during my year at the Coyote.
I am happy to have been able to contribute to my
home community and I enjoyed getting to know
more of you. I learned a lot and I am confident that
Tami will do a great job taking my place!
The following story was written by Newbold-
Flynn and printed in the October 6, 1994 edition of
Coyote Trax in the Murdo Coyote.
New methods explained: Tech Ed visits
experimental farm
by Tami Jo Newbold
Tech Ed upper classmen recently visited the
Dakota Lakes Research Farm. As Jason Miller from
the S.C.S. office helped as personal guide, the stu-
dents took a tour of the farm as manager and pro-
fessor, Dwayne Beck, explained the details.
The Dakota Lakes Research Farm is 460 acres of
land southeast of Pierre along the Missouri River.
Some people feel it is destined to become the premier
irrigation and dry land research farm in the heart-
land of South Dakota. The land is owned by the
Dakota Lakes Research Farm Corporation.
The major objectives of the corporation are to
build a water delivery system to supply Missouri
River water to the land construct suitable office and
machinery storage facilities on the farm, raise funds
for the operation of Dakota Lakes and cooperate in
setting research projects and priorities.
Already planned are projects in increased energy
efficiency, crop varieties especially adapted for both
dry land and irrigated operations in central South
Dakota, improved pest management practices,
increased water efficiency, and reduced and no-till
farming methods.
After the students viewed the farm, the general
consensus was that the tour was interesting but
very unusual from farming techniques in the imme-
diate area.
The unusual becomes the norm
by Tami Jo Newbold-Flynn
Nineteen years after the above story ran in Coy-
ote Trax, Dakota Lakes Research Farm is still going
strong, focusing not only on the advantages of no-till
farming, but also on various research projects. No-
till farming has become normal operating procedure.
Raymond Roghair, who has used the no-till farming
technique for approximately 20 years said, “The
biggest difference in the land, between then and
now, is that now there is a lot less erosion. There is
hardly any wind erosion because you always have a
cover on the surface.”
This photo accompanied Newbold-Flynn’s 1994 story about no-till farming.
John Deere 1560 no-till drill that the Jones County Conservation District
rents out to various producers. This drill was first used in 2000. The drill
is still rented often in the spring and fall, but as more and more produc-
ers use no-till farming methods they either buy their own equipment or
borrow it from a neighbor.

Jones County Ambulance service honors veterans and teaches rookies
by Tami Jo Newbold-Flynn
Three Jones County EMTs
were recently honored for their
many years of service to the
ambulance. Tammy Van Dam and
Greg Boyle have each been on the
ambulance service for 20 years
and Brett Anderson has been on
the service for 30 years. When
Van Dam was asked how things
have changed in the last 20 years
she said, “There are less people
on the service now, which some-
times makes it hard, but I am
happy a new generation of EMTs
is showing such enthusiasm”.
Anderson joined the ambu-
lance service at age seventeen.
He said that there have been
many highs and lows but that it is
completely worth it. Anderson,
says, “That after 30 years as an
EMT one of the greatest things is
that when push comes to shove
this community is there for you
and the ambulance service, when
needed.” Anderson plans to be an
EMT for as long as he is able.
New EMTs and potential
ambulance drivers were busy last
week taking the Emergency Vehi-
cle Operator Course or EVOC
training. The training was held at
the state shed and anyone who
was interested in driving the
ambulance attended. Potential
ambulance drivers went through
five different scenarios with the
new ambulance. New EMT
LaTonya Erickson said the train-
ing was, “fun and educational”.
The Jones County ambulance
will hold their third annual
pheasant fundraiser breakfast on
Saturday, October 19 and Sunday,
October 20 from 7:00 – 11:00 a.m.
at the ambulance shed. Money
raised will go towards purchasing
more equipment.

Jessie brought a friend, Melin-
da, home from Sunshine Bible
Academy to spend the weekend
with parents Mel and Clarice
On Saturday the girls and Mel
Roghair drove to Fort Pierre to
take in the Dick Stirling Memori-
al Ranch Rodeo. The two
“Roghair” teams each qualified in
the long go, so were part of the
ten finalist teams who performed
after the barbecue supper.
Although neither team placed in
the finals, Savanna Roghair was
presented the “Top Hand” award
and Lonnie Roghair won the
“Best Horse” award...I mean Lon-
nie’s mount, Bronco Billy, won the
award. If you have watched the
original Roghair Ranch team per-
form at Murdo and White River,
you’ve seen the big palomino
gelding. The first year the
Roghair brothers performed in
ranch rodeos on a muddy Satur-
day afternoon in Miller, Bronco
Billy slid in rounding a corner
and ended up on his side with all
four feet under a steel panel.
Thankfully, he responded to Lon-
nie’s voice commands and did not
thrash around and break legs.
The Stirling Ranch Rodeo
requires at least one youngster
under 16 or any female to be part
of the team. Darian Roghair of
Okaton rode with her dad, Brad
and two uncles, Lonnie and
Marty. Savanna Roghair of Isabel
rode on her dad Brice’s team with
two of Brice’s friends. The first
year the Roghairs took part in the
Stirling rodeo, when it was still
held in Highmore, Darian
brought home the Top Hand
Also present at the rodeo,
amongst a clan of Roghairs, was
Perkins County Jr. rodeo queen,
Maria Roghair.
Mel took the girls back to Sun-
shine Monday morning in time
for classes, then stayed around
the Wessington Springs area to
visit his aunt, Evelyn Weaver,
and then later to attend the
prayer services of a cousin, Gary
West Nile has hit Jones Coun-
ty hard enough. Last I checked
there were at least five cases and
a few more waiting to incubate
enough for testing. There is a
strain of sinus infection that
mimics many of the symptoms.
It’s not so nice either.
Last Sunday, Larry and Robin
Reinhold and children, along with
Grandpa Tige Reinhold, drove
over from the Rainbow Bible
Ranch north of Rapid City to
spend the day with the Brad and
Shawna Roghair family. Robin
played for church services and
accompanied Darian, Annalee
and Mesa in singing one of this
year’s camp songs.

Be Strong in the Lord
by Pastor Kevin Sadler
“Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of His might” (Eph. 6:10).
As Paul begins to close the letter to the Ephesians, he addresses the spiritual warfare of the Body of Christ. Paul’s instruction is for us to “be strong in
the Lord, and in the power of His might.” In this spiritual battle, we need spiritual strength. As we are on the Lord’s side, Paul points us to the Lord
Almighty, from Whom we are to get our strength. In this epistle, Paul has been showing believers that we are “in Christ,” in perfect, eternal union with
Him. Being in Christ, we find that His life is our life and His power is our power. We, the Body, draw the strength and power for living the Christian life
from our living Head.
“What is the exceeding greatness of His power to us-ward who believe, according to the working of His mighty power, which He wrought in Christ,
when He raised Him from the dead…” (Eph. 1:19,20).
Being strong in the Lord and in the power of His might has to do with living by faith in the resurrection life and power which resides in every believ-
er through Christ. The same power that raised Christ from the dead is the same power we’re to use to stand in this spiritual battle. The strength of the
Christian life is dependence on God. So Paul points the Church to be “strong in the Lord,” to depend upon Him.
Before salvation, Paul says we are “without strength” (Rom. 5:6). We are weak and absolutely unable to please God or save ourselves. Salvation is
only through trusting Christ, and by Him alone we have victory over sin’s penalty and punishment. After trusting Christ as our Savior, we are still weak
in ourselves, and in the Christian life our sufficiency must be of God (II Cor. 3:5). Victory over sin’s power in our lives occurs the same way we are saved
from sin’s penalty, by wholly trusting Christ and Him alone. His strength is more than sufficient for the battle, and we are guaranteed victory over any-
thing Satan throws at us when we turn to our Lord (Phil. 4:13).
The question was asked in a Sunday School class: “How can we defeat Satan?” One little girl answered, “Let Jesus answer the door when Satan starts
knocking.” To be instructed to be “strong in the Lord and in the power of His might” tells us that our might is not strong enough for us to be able to stand
in this spiritual battle, and it tells us that we face an enemy much stronger than we are apart from Christ. Therefore we need the infinite power of our Lord
in this spiritual battle, and we appropriate that strength by yielding to the indwelling Spirit, through prayer and dependence on God, and by knowledge of,
faith in, and obedience to His Word, rightly divided (cf. Eph. 6:17,18).
Two minutes with the bible
Gleanings from the prairie
•Pastor Alvin L. Gwin Community Bible Church, Murdo•
Someone said: “We need both
the north wind of adversity and
the south wind of mercy for spir-
itual health.”
As certainly as the LORD per-
mits us to suffer trials, HE will
bring us out of them into times of
rejoicing because of HIS favor.
“…weeping may endure for a
night, but joy comes in the morn-
ing” (Psalm 30:5).
It is GOD’s revealed purpose to
change our sighing into singing,
our grief into gladness, our
mourning into music. Under HIS
hand the bitter becomes sweet,
the wilderness turns into a para-
dise, the desert blossoms as the
rose, winter’s night is followed by
summer’s day.
We must not forget these
blessed truths while in some cru-
cible of suffering, lest a root of
bitterness spring up within us,
and we miss the blessed after-
math which follows the suffer-
ings of the present time.
Listen to some of the tremen-
dous phrases scattered through
the Bible. “Because you would
forget your misery, And remem-
ber it as waters that have passed
away, And your life would be
brighter than noonday. Though
you were dark, you would be like
the morning” (Job 11:16-17).
“He will not always strive with
us, Nor will He keep His anger
forever” (Psalm 103:9). “…your
sorrow will be turned into joy”
(John 16:20).
To Israel GOD said, “For a
mere moment I have forsaken
you, But with great mercies I will
gather you. With a little wrath I
hid My face from you for a
moment; But with everlasting
kindness I will have mercy on
you,” says the LORD, your
Redeemer. (Isaiah 54:7-8)
If GOD’s promise of a morning
of joy after a night of weeping
brings comfort to us now, what
will it be like on that actual
morning when we awake at last
in the presence of the LORD
where there is fullness of joy!
GOD gives HIS beloved sleep
(Psalm 127:2). When earth’s
night is over, all gloom will be
gone. We shall awake to the joy
of a morning which will never
end. The “Sun of Righteousness”
will be beaming upon us. Light
will then be on all our ways.
The return of our blessed
LORD JESUS will bring to an
end every night of weeping. HE
will say to us, (those of us who
have by faith trusted in HIS sub-
stitutionary death in our behalf)
“My beloved spoke, and said to
me: ‘Rise up, my love, my fair
one, And come away. For lo, the
winter is past, The rain is over
and gone. The flowers appear on
the earth; The time of singing
has come,…’” (Song of Solomon

the cards. From Ohio, they hope
to fly to Warrington, Missouri
and help at the Child Evangelism
headquarters there for a bit
before flying back to South Dako-
ta. There is some hope I’ll be able
to figure out where they are for a
while once they get back to Mis-
souri, but nothing is certain.
Maybe, or maybe not. Time will
As you know, confusion is fairly
common with us humans, and
most of us have areas where we
aren’t very sure of ourselves. For
instance, if you ask me if some-
thing is east or west, my answer
is apt to be fairly reliable. If you
inquire about north and south,
there is only a fifty-percent
chance that I’ll answer correctly
unless I take time to think about
it. East and west come naturally,
but north and south only by con-
centration. Similarly, if you are
facing someone and they say
something is to the left, you may
wonder if it’s their left or yours.
With some people, spelling is a
difficult area. That is not too sur-
prising since the English lan-
guage has many contradictions
and complications. Take the
words, to, too and two which all
sound alike but have different
spellings and meanings. There,
their, and they’re aren’t so simple
either. Just tonight, wife Corinne
asked me how to spell “mezzo.”
It had to do with the Scrabble
game she was playing on the
computer. The word is often used
in musical areas such as with a
mezzo-soprano or mezzo forte so
she hoped I might know how to
spell it since music is my thing.
Well, I had just laid down for a
nap and was about half asleep. I
tried to concentrate and finally
told her it was spelled “metzo”
since that is how it’s pronounced.
She said that wasn’t in the dic-
tionary. Okay, try again. Finally
it came to me, and I told her it
was spelled mezzo. The sad thing
was that she could have used
that word in her game if the pro-
gram would have accepted it by
itself without being combined
with another word such as sopra-
no, but it wouldn’t. It actually is
a separate word although maybe
in Italian instead of English so
there you are. Those are the
Another area that can boggle
the mind is electronic equipment.
When you have to trade your old
cell phone for a new one, it’s
going to take awhile to learn how
to adapt to the changes. Technol-
ogy proceeds so quickly that it’s
hard to keep up. The same
applies to a new computer. I
recently replaced a small laptop
computer and had to spend quite
a long time getting used to where
everything was on the replace-
ment. It had the latest operating
system with which I wasn’t
familiar. Even the word-process-
ing program had been updated
and “improved” to the point
where it was hard to figure out. I
grumbled my way through it, but
it took a while.
So, confusion is unfortunately
not uncommon with most of us.
We just have to muddle through
part of the time. Now, though,
you know how to answer the
question, “Where are you?” You
can just reply, “In a state of con-
fusion.” It may not be a definitive
answer, but at least it’s truthful.
“What state are you in?” I
inquired. My sister, Pat, and her
husband, Gary, were currently
calling from their car somewhere
on the road in the southeast.
They hemmed and hawed a bit
trying to figure it out and finally
Gary said, “We’re in the state of
confusion.” This brought a guf-
faw from my end of the conversa-
tion, of course, since Pat and
Gary are fairly mobile people,
and I often have trouble figuring
out exactly where they are at any
given time. I was somewhat in
hopes that they at least knew
where they were even if I didn’t.
Eventually they did decide that
they were currently in Kentucky,
having just come from Ten-
nessee. They had also recently
been in Ohio, a Carolina or two, a
Virginia or two etc.
The purpose of their trip this
time was for Gary to attend a
board meeting of Child Evangel-
ism Fellowship which is an
organization that leads Bible
schools and related activities in
various homes across the coun-
try. This is an international
group, and sometimes the board
meetings are in such places as
Africa. If you get slightly con-
fused about the geography of the
United States, try to figure
Africa. The countries there
change their names at the drop of
a hat, and very few are anything
like you learned them in geogra-
phy class.
Well, from my understanding,
Pat and Gary are currently head-
ing back to Ohio where they left
their airplane due to poor weath-
er. They had rented a car and
driven to the meeting in South
Carolina since flying was not in

Murdo Coyote • September 26, 2013 • 6
While recently conducting sun-
flower surveys quite a distance
from my office, I stopped in a farm-
yard to ask where I might find sun-
flower fields in the area. The
farmer/rancher was very helpful
and asked if I would let him know
what I came up with for a yield esti-
mate as he had a good percentage of
them contracted.
As we visited, the topic of private
crop consultants came up and he
highly complimented the agrono-
mist who monitored his fields on a
weekly basis and provided recom-
mendations. He made the state-
ment that his wheat yields had dou-
bled since he had hired his crop
consultant. He had purchased a
newer model row crop planter for
that season and was confident that
his seed placement and spacing was
greatly improved.
He also relayed a couple of recom-
mendations that he had refused to
follow during the drought of 2012,
because he thought his crop had
such low yield potential and he
resisted putting any more money
into a crop that he had little hopes
At harvest time, the weeds he had
received the recommendation to
spray were in the best area of the
field, but the yield in that part of
the field was the lowest, and he was
sure it was due to the weeds he
hadn’t sprayed. In a nutshell, this
producer said that without a doubt,
the money he pays for crop consult-
ing is well worth it. As his wife said,
“if you’re not going to do what they
recommend, why did you hire
This is a tremendous testament to
the crop consulting firm and the
agronomists they have on staff, as
well as evidence that following good
production practices pays off. This
is also a testament to South Dakota
State University, where his agrono-
mist received his college education.
Hiring crop consulting services is
not for every farmer, but does seem
to be becoming more common. As
farms become larger, so do the
demands on the farm managers’
time and expertise. There seems to
be an endless array of weeds, herbi-
cide options, insect pests, diseases,
fertilizer products, production prac-
tices and other things a farm man-
ager needs to know in order to stay
on top of their game.
Some farmers are very good at
keeping up with the latest informa-
tion and feel comfortable scouting
fields and making decisions, while
others prefer to hire someone to do
this for them. Whether you hire
your agronomy services or prefer to
go on your own, stay informed by
attending that chemical, seed or
Extension meeting that’s offered.
You’ll almost certainly learn some-
thing you can use. Even if you hire
a crop consultant, being informed
helps you ask intelligent questions.
The bottom line; doing things right
can pay big dividends.

Doing things right
Every year there are a exag-
gerating number of advertise-
ment and admonitions about tak-
ing flu vaccines. Through it all,
there continues to be those that
get the injections done and a
seemingly large number of indi-
viduals who simply refuse to get
flu vaccines for a variety of rea-
sons. There are some very unin-
formative members of our society
who still believe that the flu vac-
cine causes influenza. This ridicu-
lous belief is completely untrue.
Be that as it may, our health-
care facilities require that all of
the employees receive flu vaccine
or else have a valid reason not
too. This is because influenza is
markedly contagious. Since 1976,
there has been as few as 3,000
deaths per year to as many as
49,000 deaths in one year. It has
received the point that very few of
our society remember the 1918
epidemic in which 500,000 deaths
occurred from influenza. Also it
seems that each year there is a
different type of influenza to
worry about. Some of these
include the Hong Kong flu, the
swine flu and the bird flu. While
these are named after particular
apparent source of the influenza
virus, they all involve a single
type of virus called influenza.
From personal experience, I
am a strong advocate of flu vacci-
nation. One hears so many times
in the general public that a per-
son has “a touch of flu”. I want to
tell you that there is no such
thing as a touch a flu. Influenza is
an ugly, horrible disease. Person-
al experience I suffered this in
1968 and again in 1984 prior to
vaccines being available. On both
occasions, I was home sick for 10
days with a substantial recovery
to get back to normal strength. In
2008, there was a very poor
match between in the influenza
vaccine available and the type of
influenza virus that was causing
the disease that year. But I did
get a flu vaccine that year. I and
one of the other physicians at our
clinic both got influenza A and
neither of us found out until after
the fact. We continued to work
throughout the entire illness
without difficulty and if anything,
that might be called a touch of
flu. But unprotected influenza is
a terrible disease especially for
those over age 65 and those with
co-morbid conditions.
This year there are three major
types of influenza vaccine avail-
able. The first of these is called
the trivalence vaccine. It is the
cheapest at approximately $30
cash price. If the person is on
Medicare, the flu vaccine is basi-
cally free. The trivalence vaccine
covers three different strengths of
influenza virus completely and
will modify the intensity of multi-
ple of other strains. This year for
the first time, there is a so called
quadra-valence vaccine. This one
costs approximately $39 and has
one more strain of virus covered.
The quadra-valance vaccine cov-
ers two strains of influenza A, one
strain of influenza B. The quadra-
valanece covers two strains of
both influenza A and influenza B.
The group of people that are
most in need of influenza vaccina-
tion are the medicare group. For-
tunately, one of the things that
our government has gotten right
is to cover influenza vaccines for
those on medicare. For the group
of people who are on the medicare
group and have chronic lung dis-
ease, chronic heart disease, dia-
betes or a host of other debility
conditions, the influenza vaccine
should be the high dose type. The
high dose vaccine is $54.99 if not
covered by medicare. The side
effect profile for influenza vaccine
is remarkably self. The one major
side effect that is devastating
that is called Gillian-Barre Syn-
drome. With this syndrome, the
person’s nerves are damaged and
they become weakened or even
paralysed. This is a vanishing
rare side effect that I have never
seen in my 50 years of practice.
Other than that, some individu-
als develop a slight fever, some
people develop slight soreness,
redness and swelling where the
shot was given. But even this is
Certain people should probably
not get influenza vaccine. Among
these, are people that have an
allergies to chicken eggs or has
had very severe reaction to previ-
ous influenza shot. Individuals
that are already clinically ill from
some other condition, should wait
until that condition is dealt with
before getting the vaccine.
There are two additional vacci-
nations that adults should
receive. The first of these is called
a pneumonia shot. Pneumonia is
caused by a host of many, many
different organisms. The pneumo-
nia shot itself only protects
against pneumonia caused by the
pneumococcus. The value of the
shot is that nearly half of the
cases of pneumonia that occur in
our society are due to the pneu-
mococcus which is the target
organism from the “pneumonia
shot.” Many people ask why to get
the pneumonia shot when it only
covers half of the people who get
pneumonia.The reason is easy.
The half that does receive the
shot, the condition is significantly
attenuated and/or prevented and
pneumonia can be a severe and
fatal disease.
The third recommendation for
an adult vaccination is to get the
Zostavax injection to prevent
shingles. Fortunately, many peo-
ple come to the clinic and request
this injection having had experi-
ence with the one-third of the
population who get shingles
sometime during their life. The
shingle shot only protects about
70 percent of the people who
receive it. But all of the people
who receive the shingle shot have
a definite decrease intensity of
the shingles that can be very
severe and debilitating. Perhaps
one of the most important bene-
fits of the shingle shot is that the
nerve pain that comes after the
infection can least for years. This
is almost completely prevented
with the shingle shot which I
highly recommend to the adult
population. One of the common
questions we receive about the
shingle shot, should a person use
this if they already had shingles.
The answer is yes and this is
especially true for those who have
had more than one episode of
shingles which dose occur. The
shingle shot will attenuate the
severity of the disease and pre-
vent the post repetitive neuralgia
that often occurs after an episode
of shingles.
In summary, these are three
very important adult immuniza-
tions that should be carried out to
prevent influenza, pneumococcal
pneumonia and shingles. You
may get lucky and never have an
experience with any of these dis-
eases if you don’t take the injec-
tions but some of the most regret-
ful people I know are those who
have gotten shingles without an
injection or got an influenza with-
out taking the influenza shot. Flu
season really runs from October
through May and now is the time
to get your influenza shot done. It
takes about two weeks to develop
enough immunity to protect your-
self. Protection from the influen-
za shot really does last a year and
thus you don’t need to worry
about “getting it too early.”

From the U.S. Senate
• Senator John Thune •
South Dakota depends on afford-
able and reliable energy from coal
and natural gas-fired power plants
in the upper Great Plains. Howev-
er, a new proposed rule out of the
Obama administration’s Environ-
mental Protection Agency (EPA)
threatens to raise energy costs for
families and businesses and restrict
economic growth and job creation
throughout our state and across the
country. Recently, the EPA released
a proposed rule that would require
unrealistic new carbon standards
for all new power plants. The cost of
implementing this proposed rule on
reliable energy sources far out-
weighs the benefits and represents
yet another step forward in the
president’s war on affordable ener-
The rule raises serious concerns
about how this far-reaching and
burdensome regulation will impact
the nation’s energy supply and eco-
nomic future. As two of the nation’s
largest and most reliable sources of
affordable electricity, the EPA is
essentially forcing the hand of coal
and natural gas-fired power plants
to submit to the new source per-
formance standards or face poten-
tial elimination in the marketplace.
Unfortunately, the EPA’s perform-
ance standards are set to an unreal-
istic and arguably unattainable
Instead of working through the
proper channels in Congress to
address the EPA’s concerns on
power plant emissions, the admin-
istration yet again side-stepped
Congress to implement this danger-
ous and far-reaching regulation.
After the failure of the president’s
own cap and tax legislation that
also would have increased energy
costs and destroyed jobs throughout
the country, it is not a surprise that
the president has taken to circum-
venting Congress to implement his
climate change agenda.
Senator Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.)
announced his intention to file a
resolution of disapproval to stop the
EPA from imposing this new regu-
lation. The resolution would allow
for a vote to repeal the rule and pre-
