Attorney General Marty Jackley in recognition and support of Child Abuse Prevention Month would like to explain the importance of a new program that is being implemented across the
“Period of Purple Crying” to launch Annual Radiothon features local hero Dacey Bryan child abuse prevention month
State of South Dakota. The Period of Purple Crying is a new way to help parents understand this time in their baby's life, which is a normal part of every infant's development. The Period of PURPLE Crying begins at about 2 weeks of age and continues until about 5-6 months of age. There are other common characteristics of this phase, which are better described by the acronym PURPLE. All babies go through this period. It is during this time that some babies can cry a lot and some far less, but they all go through it. “Having a better understanding of this very common growth period for newborn infants will allow us to proactively work towards the prevention of shaken baby syndrome,” said Jackley. “A program such as this can prevent needless injury and death to the most innocent of victims.” The program includes a 10 minute educational video and brochure that is given to all new parents and is required to be viewed prior to hospital discharge. This proactive approach teaches new parents about the normal infant crying and the dangers of shaking an infant.

The State of South Dakota wants to remove every abandoned underground storage tank that was used to sore a petroleum product. You ask, “Why should I consider getting my tank removed?” There are two reasons, first, as tanks corrode, petroleum that may still be in them will leak into our ground water, contaminate soil and could cause unhealthy vapors to seep into basements. Second, the longer old tanks remain in the ground, the more corroded they become which increases a risk of the tank collapsing and someone or something falling into the hole. All that is needed of a land owner is their permission. The Department of Environment and Natural Resources will hire private contractors to remove any remaining product from the tank, remove the tank, and test the soil. The contractor will also remove piping and contaminated back fill around the tank, then fill the hole. The best part is the state pays all the costs associated with removing the tanks and any additional cleanup that may be needed.
Abandoned tank removal program
Next week we will be doing some rearranging and you can find the Coyote News Briefs on Page 2!
Information and tank removal forms are available at the Emergency Management Office located in the basement of the Courthouse or by calling 605-669-7101 and talking to Angie Kinsley.
Community wide Easter egg hunt had great weather, large turnout
No matter the age, cancer is a life-changing disease. But when children are affected by cancer, the experience of growing up is far different than healthy kids. That’s why Sanford Children’s Hospital and Results Radio are teaming up once again for the 6th Annual Results Radio Cure Kids Cancer Radiothon presented by Jerry’s Auto Sales. Last year’s event raised almost $300,000 and this year hopes are even higher. Broadcast hosts will introduce listeners to Cure Kids Cancer heroes and their courageous families, including Dacey Bryan, daughter of Heath and Leronda Bryan of Draper. The event, which aims at helping kids fight cancer, is being held
April 4-5. During the 24-hour event, hosts from MIX 97.3, KIKN Country 100.5, B102.7, Hot 104.7 as well as KSOO 1140, KXRB 1000 and Easy 100.1, will broadcast live from the Carlson Great Hall at Sanford Children’s Hospital.

Tillage worst thing for SD soils
Tillage may be the worst thing right now that could happen for soil in South Dakota fields say conservation officials. Spring tillage is a tradition that is steeped deeply into American agriculture. Now, more and more producers are realizing that tillage is not in the best interest of their soil’s health. “Tillage was once considered necessary in order to prepare a proper seed bed for planting. Now, we know that we can produce as much or more grain without tilling the soil,” says Jason Miller, Conservation Agronomist with the Natural Resources Conservation Service (NRCS) Pierre, SD. “Tillage passes reduce surface soil moisture, but more alarming is that fact that tillage is incredibly destructive to soil; it is like a tornado going through a house,’ says Miller. Tillage collapses and destroys organic matter and soil structure. “Those macro pores in the soil structure are essential–they are what helps water to infiltrate the soil profile,” he says.

Jones County fatal crash
A Mitchell, S.D., woman died in a two-vehicle crash on U.S. Highway 83 south of Murdo on Sunday, March 31. Terri Ann Kowall, 54, was driving north in a 2011 Jeep Compass when the vehicle went out of control, crossed the centerline and collided head-on with a southbound 2001 Chevrolet 2500 HD pickup driven by Ian Matthew Moriarty, 28, of Rapid City, S.D. Moriarty attempted to move to the right shoulder of the highway but was
“The possibility of 2013 being another dry year should have producers rethinking their use of tillage,” says Miller. In a tilled condition, soil is vulnerable to erosion. “As dry as the soil profile is starting out this year, even getting the crop seeded will be difficult without a concern for wind erosion,” says Miller. Winds during the spring easily pick up soil particles on tilled fields before crops can become established. “Reducing or eliminating tillage, increases surface residue, builds organic matter and preserves soil health,” says Miller. Improved cropping systems for building soil should include no-till, diverse high residue producing crop rotations and cover crops. Producers interested in learning more about soil health or wanting technical assistance for implementing a soil health management system on their farm or ranch should contact their local NRCS office or visit the Soil Health Information Center at www.nrcs.usda.gov.

Bill and Ellen Valburg motored to Upland, Neb., to Flying Farmer friends, Bill and Margaret Bunger on Wednesday, March 20. The next day they went on to Junction City, Kan., where they attended the Kansas Flying Farmer Convention through the weekend. On Sunday, on over to Onaga, Kan., and visited the Valburg relatives. Monday they continued on to Rea, Mo., where they stayed with longtime friend, Ed Bashor. They arrived home Wednesday evening, March 27, after stopping at Jerry Weeldreyer’s at Parker, S.D., and Merle and Marlene Aamot’s in Kennebec. Easter Day guests at Bill and Ellen Valburg’s were Barry and Missy Valburg, Mallory and Sunny Lee; Bill and Cindy Valburg and Chad; and Philip and Audrey Mathews. Their neighbors, Mike and Alana Rykhus joined them for supper. How was everyone's Easter weekend? Ours was very nice. As we decided to head for the hills, we stopped in Kadoka on Friday and visited Dwight Louder and called on Melford Koester at the rest home. The yard there was covered with Easter eggs – the kids were to arrive at 10:30 for the egg hunt. I'm sure the residents enjoyed watching them. Anyway, it looked like the Easter bunny had been very busy! From there, we visited Deanna Byrd, Brad and Kristi Stone and family. Then we went on to Rapid City. We visited Sonny and Evelyn Tornow over coffee Friday afternoon. That evening at Don and Cara Pearson's, we had supper with Don at the grill and son Jay joined us. Saturday morning, some of us went out for breakfast. Then just us went and visited Bob and Bev Drabek, both recuperating from surgeries. Bob got a new knee recently and Bev had colon surgery. All went okay with both and they are doing fine. On Sunday, we had dinner at the Pearson's. Joining the group was Jay Louder and son Tyler, Brian Louder, Drew and family, and Calli and family. It was a beautiful day – short sleeve weather. Late afternoon, we headed home and as we passed through Kadoka the temp dropped to 33 degrees. We thought rain or fog ahead, but turned out to be snow flurries, which didn't develop into anything. All in all, a nice weekend with family. Understand that it was a little cool here for the Easter bunny. Brian and Karen Louder had just gotten home Friday evening from Brookings, where daughter Chelsea is a student at SDSU, majoring in graphic design. That group had a display of their work on Thursday that Brian and Karen attended. Chelsea will be graduating in May. Lila Mae Christian, Helen Louder, Shirley Vik and Linda Brost listened to the first and second graders read to them on Thursday and then it was coffee time. Dorothy Louder, Darin Louder and Lisa Cline had Easter dinner Sunday at the Kennebec home of Charlie and Susan Hamer. Others there were: the Hamer's daughter, Kerri, and boys of Renner; and Kenny and Diane Hamer and family. Easter weekend guests of Kevin and Laura Louder were Jamie Bretsch and family of Aberdeen. Joining them for Easter dinner were Brad Louder and Dustin Aske. Levi and Shannon Louder left Thursday to spend the Easter weekend with her family in North Dakota. Jason Seamans of Rapid City arrived at his parents, David and Lill's, home on Friday. On Sunday, they joined family and friends for Easter dinner at the Kennebec home of Chet and Teresa Hamer. How many remember Delphine (Lauritson) and Bob Carmack? They live in Ozark, Mo., and will be celebrating 60 years of married life on April 4. Delphine and I are cousins. Her and her family used to live south of Draper where Paul Seamans lives. Rebecca Buxcel of Sydney, Mont., arrived Friday evening at the home of her brother, Paul and Katherine Patterson. Joshua and Valerie Fredericksen of Watertown also arrived Friday to spend the Easter weekend. Joining the group for Easter dinner on Sunday was Helen Louder. Rebecca returned home on Sunday, and the Fredericksens returned home on Monday.

Kathy and Lennie Witte and family from Aurora, S.D.; Judy Rippe from Belle Fourche, S.D.; Ron Lebeda from Draper completed the immediate family for Sharlene Rada. They all brought their children and grandchildren and took many pictures to have later to remember the day.

Sunday morning Wanda went to the sunrise service hosted by Pastor Hazen and the Methodist church.

by Pastor Ray Greenseth, Messiah/St. Paul Lutheran Churches “He descended into hell; the 3rd day He rose again from the dead.” When a general wins a battle, people will often celebrate the victory with a parade. Band play, people sing and shout for joy to honor the successful general. Long ago, the greatest battle of all was won by our victorious Savior over satan. When Jesus was on the cross: He said, “It is finished”, He meant that He had paid in full for all of our sins. Then our victorious Savor descended into hell in the greatest triumphal march of all time to announce His victory over satan, the powers of darkness and sin. Because Jesus is God, He not only had the power to give His life or you and me, but He had the power to take it back. In other words He was also victorious over death. On Good Friday, a rich man by the name of Joseph went to Pilate to get permission to bury Jesus in a new tomb. A great
Jesus our Victorious Savior
stone was rolled in front of the door and later Pilate sent a guard of soldiers to seal the stone and to be on duty so no one could take the body of Jesus away. On the 3rd day, Mary Magdaline and 2 other women went to the tomb. They wondered how they were going to roll away the stone, when the women came to the tomb they saw the stone rolled away. To their surprise, they saw a shining angel in a garment..in dazzling white. The angel said.” Why do you seek the living among the dead, He is not here, He has risen.” They believed and went and ran and told the disciples what they had scene. What a joyous celebration. Let us also share this good new with others....for Jesus is Risen. He is risen indeed! Hallelujah! Let us pray....” We thank You LORD, for being our Risen LORD and Savior. Enable us to have the joyous spirit that the women had and share this great news as well. Amen.

Two minutes with the bible
Full Assurance by Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
It is wonderful to have the full assurance of salvation, and it is God’s will that every one of us enjoy this assurance. Toward the close of his life the Apostle John wrote by divine inspiration: “These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God, that ye may know that ye have eternal life…” (I John 5:13). There are three bases upon which believers in Christ may enjoy the full assurance of salvation: First, God urges every true believer: “Let us draw near, with a sincere heart, in full assurance of faith…” (Heb. 10:22). This is the full assurance that results from simply believing God; much as a child implicitly believes what his father has said and is absolutely sure that it is true. God says: “He that believeth on the Son hath everlasting life” (John 3:36). We may simply — and with good reason — believe His Word and enjoy the full assurance of faith. Second, we may enjoy what Heb. 6:11 calls “the full assurance of hope.” The hope of the Bible, however, must not be confused with wishing. The Christian’s “hope” is “an anchor of the soul, both sure and stedfast” (Ver. 19). It comes from having proved God. Thus the full assurance of hope is the confidence that results from having accepted God’s Word. But third, and best of all, is what Col. 2:2 calls “riches of the full assurance of understanding.” This full assurance is God’s reward to Christians who study His Word and His purposes, beginning with His plan of salvation as revealed in “the gospel of the grace of God.” When one not only believes God’s Word, but begins to understand it he cannot but be gripped by its sublime reasonableness, its powerful logic, and its provision for his deepest needs, and thus he comes to enjoy “all [the] riches of the full assurance of understanding.”

I killed three birds with one stone, so to speak, on Friday. We had Good-Friday services scheduled at the church so I called around and set it up to have a township meeting at the church hall before services and a churchboard meeting there afterwards. It worked a treat. We were able to get all three get-togethers done in one trip. This sort of thing doesn’t happen very often it seems. Lives tend to be busy, and getting five or six people to agree on a time and place for a meeting may take awhile. As a result, it’s a nice surprise when everyone can come at the same time. It just happened to work out on Friday because those needed for the meetings were coming to Good-Friday services anyway. Coming a little earlier or leaving a little later didn’t make much difference. When mileage and time are a concern in this far-flung area where going to town involves at least a half hour both going and coming, combining tasks just seems a sensible idea. In other words, I saved two hours of traveling time alone on Friday by scheduling three meetings on the same day. Then too, besides the expenditures of travel time and gas money, it interrupts a day to put down your tools and run off to town. Sometimes it’s hard to get much else done on those days. Similar organizational high jinks have been going on all my life, it seems, just because we live so far out in the sticks. If you’re going to go to town, you might as well do a bunch of stuff so you don’t have to return right away. Wife Corinne learned early on in our marriage that my trips to town were apt to involve a whole lot of stops. I might visit the post office, bank, hardware store, grocery, court house, gas station and several other places. I might even drop off eggs here and there. Ten to fifteen stops were not uncommon. After awhile, Corinne would inquire where all I was planning to go before agreeing to ride along. If the number of stops seemed excessive in her view, she might decide she had too much work to do at home and couldn’t go along that day. If she had someone she could visit in town while I dashed here and there, that was okay. Otherwise, forget it. By the way, doing one job right after another is just fine with us fellows. What we aren’t too good at is multitasking. Gals have the edge on us there. They seem able to keep several plates spinning on sticks at the same time whereas we guys prefer one at a time. I even get a little frustrated when I prepare some meals. I find it difficult to get the meat, potatoes, vegetable, salad and gravy all ready at the same time. Far easier are one-pot meals such as when you throw a roast in the oven and later add potatoes and carrots to the same pan. Even simpler is unwrapping a frozen pizza and sticking it in the oven for a while or heating a can of soup. Simplicity often wins the day.

Lookin’ Around
This week, though, was a triumph of scheduling. On Thursday, we had to visit the clinic since son Chance had a sore on his lip that needed attention. After that, I suggested we stop by the hairdresser to see if we could all get haircuts since Chance and I were getting pretty shaggy. To my great surprise, both gals happened to have openings just then so Chance and Corinne could get their hair clipped at the same time with mine being done just after. If we’d come a little earlier or a little later, it wouldn’t have worked out. We happened to time it just right, though, so it did. I was pleased. As you might imagine, I’ve about run my course on combining events. Luckily, there is nothing much on the schedule that would require it. In other words, I have no plans to kill any birds with any stones. As far as I know, there is actually nothing specific scheduled for the rest of the year although something will no doubt come up. I can happily plod from bill paying to accounting to cooking to going to church. None of this multiple-meeting business or multitasking. That’s fine with me. That’s actually the way I prefer it. There might even be enough time to sit on the deck occasionally and listen to the meadowlarks sing. They have recently returned so the time to enjoy them has, of necessity, been added to my “busy” schedule. Now might be a good time to go do that. Catch you later.

The U.S. Government will trim payments to 350,000 farmers by about $152 million to comply with automatic spending cuts that took effect at the start of this month, Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said on Tuesday. Vilsack said the money would come out of the $5 billion-a-year direct-payment subsidy, which is paid in the fall, to offset reductions due in three USDA programs that have already disbursed money to farmers. During a speech to trade group officials, Vilsack said comparatively small amounts are due for each farmer, so it would be more efficient to pro-rate the direct-payUSDA PARES FARM PAYMENTS BY $152 MILLION DUE TO BUDGET SEQUESTER

Early Season Wheat Disease Update While winter wheat producers are anxiously waiting for warmer temperatures to see if there is a chance of a crop, and spring wheat producers are waiting for the opportunity to plant, there are reports of rust development in several southern states in wheat fields and nurseries. Leaf and stripe rust have already been found in Texas, even earlier than 2012, which was much earlier than normal. Stripe rust has also been observed in Mississippi, Arkansas and Louisiana. Stripe rust was seen in Arkansas back in the beginning of December, which may be the earliest it has ever been seen it there. South Dakota producers will need to watch the progression up from Texas this year because it could be a concern if the conditions are right. Reports of stripe rust and leaf rust from Texas are important, because weather systems often transport the rust spores from these regions into Oklahoma, Kansas and on up through Nebraska to South Dakota. If stripe and/or leaf rust continues to develop in the southern states, producers may need to evaluate the feasibility of fungicide applications on susceptible varieties. SDSU Extension Plant Pathology Specialists and Field Specialists strive to keep producers informed, but growers can also monitor the situation on the USDA Cereal Rust Laboratory website: http://www.ars.usda.gov/ Main/docs.htm?docid=9757. On that website, visitors can access the current rust situation, 2013 and past years’ cereal rust bulletins, rust observation maps, and a wealth of information on cereal diseases. University and private individuals can also submit rust and other cereal disease observations for their area to contribute to the reports. New Fusarium Head Blight Prediction Center

he Fusarium Head Blight Prediction Center has been redesigned and the new version is now active. The growth stage in which wheat is vulnerable to Fusarium Head Blight (FHB or scab) is certainly a ways off for South Dakota, but it’s good to be aware of the tool, which can be accessed at: http://www.wheatscab .psu.edu/. The website offers risk assessment for roughly the eastern half of the United States. Visitors can choose a state to zoom in on their area, choose the model of either spring or winter wheat, the susceptibility of the variety and see an overview of the risk of scab for their location. The map is populated with both FAA and AgNet weather stations, which can be clicked for up-to-date information at the site. More detailed information can be accessed by clicking “Query”, and then the weather station of your choice. Scab risk and probability, temperature, precipitation and humidity are shown for the previous week at that site. 4/9/2013 – Sorghum Meeting, Cedar Shore Resort, Oacoma, SD 4/17-18/2013 – Spring Extension Conference, Brookings, SD 4/24/2013 – Drought Management Webinar, 10:00 am CST, SD Regional Extension Centers Calendar

The Clinical View
Pat was a 38-year-old secretary divorced from an abusive relationship 15 years earlier. In her late teens and early 20’s, she was “a party girl.” She enjoyed the camaraderie of talking to friends and could “drink with the best of them.” She was very responsible in her job as a secretary and did not miss time from work. She managed two teenagers in high school and at age 38 seemed a very responsible citizen. But following her marriage and subsequent divorce, she became a “closet alcoholic.” She would have one drink when she got home, another with supper, and then three to five more through the evening. She very much enjoyed Friday nights when friends would celebrate another week gone by at one of the local pubs. The friends would begin to gather around 6 p.m. and the party often lasted until 9 p.m. or 10 p.m. Pat never seemed to be intoxicated nor did her behavior ever become an issue. But there were some nagging signs that alcohol was becoming an issue. Some days she just didn’t seem to be as “put together” and might forget various responsibilities. She had a relationship with a special male friend. On several occasions, she had called him late in the evening, very morose and belittling him because The Story of Pat he would not leave his wife and marry Pat. The following morning, he took her aside to discuss the phone call. She had no memory of ever making that call, had no memory of its content, and didn’t know what he was talking about. One Friday night, the group gathered at the usual pub and there were several rounds of drinks. Someone made a suggestion that they proceed to a new bar to check it out. So they all left and went to the new bar. Pat and several of the party goers remained in the new bar until about 10 p.m. when the party broke up. She went to drive her car home apparently sober but she couldn’t find her car. There was a parking lot quite full and various cars parked in the street. After wandering for a brief period of time, she called the police to report her car stolen. Officers came to assist her and found her car parked about a block and a half away. The new bar was quite popular with inadequate local parking. One of the officers who came to her assistance was suspicious that the patient was not fit to drive even though she passed a breath test. He cited her for false reporting of a stolen vehicle. After a lengthy proceeding, the judge and prosecuting attorney concluded that Pat was alcoholic who was having “alcoholic blackouts.” She was given the choice of a handsome fine and jail

time for the reporting of a false stolen vehicle or proceeding to alcohol treatment, which she chose. Recently, I had a patient very similar to Pat who wanted to know what an “alcoholic blackout” was. An alcohol counselor had told the patient that he was having alcoholic blackouts and therefore had advanced alcohol-related brain damage. As you might imagine, the patient was shocked. I explained that there were thousands of college students who go out and drink excessively one night and the next morning don’t remember a thing about what they did last night. This is the result of acute alcohol excess. These are not the alcoholic blackouts we are talking about. Instead, an alcoholic blackout is something that occurs after significant brain damage has been done through many years of drinking excessively. The classical scenario is the alcoholic functioning normally during the day, proceeding home, having two to three to four drinks, and then not being really intoxicated or incapacitated. And yet because of the brain damage from long-term alcohol intake, they do not remember what occurs after they have had a very modest alcohol intake and their behavior is not like being drunk. They can play cards, carry on a conversation, go dancing and not remember a particle of it the
next morning. This is because of short term memory impairment. In Pat’s case, she would make phone calls and have no memory of having made them the next day. On the occasion of her reporting a false stolen vehicle, she had been at the first bar where she had three to four drinks, thereby impairing her short term memory. She then, with only a modest amount of alcohol in her blood, drove her car to the next bar but then had no memory of where she parked her car. By 10 p.m., when she was somewhat less intoxicated and getting ready to go home, she didn’t know where her car was. That is an alcoholic blackout and a sign of advanced alcohol- related problem. The New England Journal of Medicine had a review of alcoholism in January 2013. They remarked that there are 79,000 deaths per year related to alcohol abuse. At least 25,000 of these deaths are related to moving vehicle accidents occurring while the driver is intoxicated. Another 18,000 are suicides. As anyone who has had experience with an alcoholic knows, the alcoholic is disinclined to acknowledge the problem and often unwilling to accept help. Fortunately, in Pat’s case the judge made her an offer she couldn’t refuse. Not every person with an alcohol problem is so lucky.
