Wall City Council approves sewer/lagoon project
by Laurie Hindman Sewer/Lagoon project was discussed at council meeting. Wall City Council approved to proceed with all phases of the $800,000 project. CETEC Engineer Ted Schultz presented the sewer/lagoon plans to the Wall City Council and went on to explain the phases of the project along with alternate phases. He proposed to increase the 10 inch clay sewer main to a 15 inch main and increase the slope which will take care of the manholes that are failing. Schultz explained that the old pipeline was installed in 1951, and with councils approval the project could go to bid in January 2013. The Waste Water Committee has met and came back with a recommendation for the council. Stan Anderson said, “The committee feels it is important enough to do the entire project using all reserves and the money that is in the Waste Water Fund.” The project will be completed by next fall. Schultz also commented on the Echo Valley water main and utility easement. The contractor will be starting next week and the easement will be 20 feet wide with the water main on the north side. He recommended that the council draw up a document that says the City of Wall owns the water main once it is completed and inspected. He went on to say that all parties should sign a statement of expenditures. A motion was made and approved to turn the project over to the Water Committee for approval on the easement and Tanner Hancock to get water from the City of Wall. Kevin Kjerstad and Preston Johnson each gave a statement on the airport project. Kjerstad feels that the facility is very important and will keep the Wall Airport a vital airport. He went on to say that the project cost is $400,000 and there is no economic justification for spending that kind of money but FAA requires this type of building and equipment. Kjerstad said, “It is the best interest of the City of Wall to move forward with this project and if they don’t it could jeopardize funding for the expansion of the runway.” Johnson informed the council without expanding the runway he won’t be able to use the runway. He would have to find another landing strip else where and he would rather stay in Wall and give the city his business. Mayor Dave Hahn related that Rose Engineering recommended they accept the bid from Custom Environment Inc. for the building. The bid came in at $182,000. The city investment will be $4,000. Council approved the bid. Hahn explained only one bid came in for the snow removal equipment but the FAA has now required that the equipment be 60 percent manufactured in the U.S. With the FAAs fiscal year coming to a close September 10, there is not enough time to get the equipment out to bids. The city will then be required to contribute five percent instead of the two percent. Hahn said, “This is what the airport really wanted.” Hahn will continue to do research on the matter. The Two Bit Saloon was approved to serve/sell liquor at the Wall Community Center on September 7 and 8. Thomas Van Osdal who was employed at the city pool apologized to the council for his behavior and provided them with a check for $138 and volunteered one day of his service to the City of Wall. A motion to forward the lease agreement with the Wall Ambulance District to the city attorney for his review was approved. The Finance Committee has met and gone over the 2013 budget. They have made changes to the expenditure portion of the budget. Council gave approval for the final reading of Ordinance 12-05. Second reading on Ordinance 12-06; Sign Ordinance was approved. Resolution 12-10; Employee purchase from $50 to $200 for local vendors was approved. Council dropped the animal ordinance (breeding dogs for fighting.) The issue of commercial businesses using another commercial business garbage dumpster was discussed. Commercial businesses will be asked to come to the next council meeting to voice any concerns they may have. Council tabled complaints on property cleanup not being fair to everyone until the next meeting. Jim Kitterman asked where do we draw the line on ordinances. There are fences that don’t meet code requirements and other issues. Public Works Director will look into contacting agencies to help with this concern. Council approved City of Wall, fire department, library and cemetery bills. The ambulance bills and the the bill for EMT t-shirts which was $1,615 was also approved. Finance Officer Carolynn Anderson was approved to attend the property tax workshop in Philip on September 25 and the conference in Pierre, October 2 - 5. Clark recommended to the council to have Todd Sieler work at the rubble site with his cat instead of using the city loader. Tires for the city loader cost $1,800 while Sieler charges $85 an hour. Clark said,
Rural electric motorcycle charity ride
“Neighbors feeding Neighbors”
West River Electric hosted the 10th annual “Line Patrol Charity Ride” on Saturday, September 8. The ride drew over 230 participants who must be a cooperative employee, director, supplier or immediate family member of a electric coop. All proceeds were donated to the SDRE Accident Victim Fund. ~Photo Veronica Kusser
By Del Bartels The 10th annual motorcycle and car tour by employees of South Dakota’s electric cooperatives was held Saturday, September 8. This year the 260 plus participants started the morning from Wall, then looped south to arrive in Kadoka for lunch in the West Central Electric warehouse. Originally the planned route included a northerly loop to Cottonwood, then on to Philip. The Philip stop even had approval from the Philip City Council for S. Center Avenue in Philip to be closed from Pine Street south to Oak Street on Saturday, September 8, from 9:30 to 11:00 a.m. for the South Dakota Rural Electric Charity Ride. According to Joe Connot, member services for West Central Electric Cooperative based out of Murdo, the route was changed on Thursday, August 23. Because of a temporary fix to the road south of Kadoka, “We will not be going north out of Wall and into Philip, but thru the Badlands, then south of Kadoka,” stated Connot. Whether through Philip, or through the Badlands, or any other part of South Dakota, the reason for the annual ride is to raise funds for the South Dakota rural electric accident victim’s fund. Initially for employees injured while working, the fund now also helps employees and their families who are suffering nonwork related injuries or illnesses, such as cancer, premature births or accidents. The ride has grown in numbers every year since it began in 2003. South Dakota electic co-ops employ almost 1,000 people statewide, with over 180 participating in this year’s ride. To date, more than 70 separate incidences have been awarded funds from this project. Each year the ride covers a different geographical area covered by the state’s 28 distribution electric cooperatives. Though other varying fundraising projects are held throughout the year by different co-ops, this ride produces the largest amount for the fund. The fund was originally established to assist employees who were injured on the job. While workers compensation covers the employees medical costs, it does not cover travel, food and motel costs of the employee’s family. “Our goal was to assist with these expenses. We not only raise money with the ride but we also sell tshirts and have a live auction of donated items at the conclusion,” stated Karla Steele, South Dakota Rural Electric Association. “Employee safety is a top priority of our cooperatives and fortunately work place injuries are rare. We decided to broaden the fund to include natural disasters or serious medical situations experienced by our employees or their immediate family. To date, $69,000 has been donated to help our cooperative employees through some very serious issues,” stated Steele. There are approximately 905 cooperative employees throughout the state of South Dakota which forms one large cooperative family. Last year we had 186 participants in the charity ride and this year we anticipate well over 200 driving an assortment of motorcycles and other vehicles. These cooperative employees and directors donate their own time and money to fund the charity and participate in the ride. As the event has grown, it continues to build those friendships statewide and provides a sense of “paying it forward.” The recipients of the fund and the people who participate know they are part of a large family looking out for one another. This year the Line Patrol Charity Ride was based out of West River Electric in Wall with West Central Electric and Lacreek Electric assisting. The convoy depared Wall and proceed to Kadoka where the group had lunch and then headed through the Badlands and returned to Wall where a dinner and auction took place at the Community Center,” stated Steele.
First Interstate Bank of Wall sponsored their second annual “Neighbors feeding Neighbors” at the bank on Friday, September 7. All donations will be going to the local Meals on Wheels program. First Interstate Great Wall Fund will match portions of the donations. ~Photo Laurie Hindman

S.D. Farm Bureau holds caucus meeting in Sturgis
South Dakota Farm Bureau held its Caucus for Districts 5 and 6 in Sturgis at the Pizza Ranch last Monday evening. Members from counties in these two districts gathered to discuss important issues affecting agriculture at the local, state and national levels. The counties in these districts include Bennett, Butte Corson, Custer, Dewey, Fall River, Haakon, Harding, Jackson, Jones, Lawerence, Meade, Mellette, Pennington, Perkins, Shannon, Todd, and Ziebach. Members reflected on the past Farm Bureau year. They looked at legislative activities that had taken place during the last legislative session. South Dakota Farm Bureau worked with other agricultural groups, legislators and the Department of Revenue to find ways to improve the transition to a productivity-based assessment method for agricultural land. They were also successful in lobbing the passage of a bill to clarify that straw, corn stover, and bean straw used for livestock bedding is exempt from sales and use tax. South Dakota Farm Bureau has also been part of a core group of agricultural leaders and the Board of Regents to define how much funding is necessary for land grant research and how to find those funds. Josh Geigle, Y F and R co-chair gave a report on the Young Farmer and Rancher committee. They were excited this year to have Kristin Vandersnick place in the “Sweet 16” at the American Farm Bureau Federation Discussion Meet. Travis and Renae Gebhart were runners-up in the American Farm Bureau Federation Achievement Award bringing home a Case IH tractor. The committee members have been busy hosting meetings in their districts and attending elementary schools to read agricultural related books to the students. Michael Gebhart and Norman Geigle gave their District Director reports. South Dakota Farm Bureau is very excited to announce that Wayne Smith is the new Executive Director for the Farm Bureau. They have also hired Bonnie Dybedahl as the new Regional Manager. Diane Geigle, District 6 Women’s Leadership Team Representative gave a report on the new agricultural books that have been selected this year for the accurate ag book program. The Women’s Leadership Team has also been busy this year with their grain bin safety display, working at the Ag Day at the Pavilion, and arranging for donating milk weekly along with food donation to the Ronald McDonald House. Nominations were held for upcoming elections that will take place at the South Dakota Farm Bureau Annual Meeting November 15-17th in Spearfish. Members also talked about some priority issues that can be taken back to their counties for discussion. Bobbi Williams, Pennington County joined Farm Bureau because “Some friends invited us to a Farm Bureau meeting and after we went the first time we were hooked.” When asked on why she attended the District caucus she replied “When you are a member of an organization you should take the opportunity to be informed and active.” Josh Geigle, Pennington County President stated “That being in Farm Bureau is just part of his family. His father was one of South Dakota first Y F and R members. Farm Bureau is a great wellrounded agricultural organization. It is a grassroot organization, there is no top down decision making on policy or authority it all starts with the members at the county level.”

Lady Eagles trounce Rapid City Christian 3 - 0
By Coach Dani Herring The Wall Lady Eagles took on their second opponent of the season, Rapid City Christian on Thursday, August 30. The girls looked more unified and comfortable with our rotation and the younger girls really stepped up and played well when it counted.

Returning starters from last year are: •Setters: Kaitlin Schreiber and Bailey Lytle. •Outside Hitter: Autumn Schulz. •Middle Hitter: Kim Billings. •Libero: Tayah Huether. We have added Freshman Josie Blasius and Monica Bielmaier to the starting line up and are looking forward to what they can bring to the team.

Jones County proved to be a tough opponent after we won the first match of the set. The girls played well in adjusting to a new offense and new players added into the mix.
Alex Tysdal came in 14th place in the JV Boys run at the Wall Cross Country Invite.
By Coach Patterson The Wall CC Invite was held on a beautiful Saturday morning. September 8th, nine schools came to run at the golf course. With the help of many volunteers and school staff it was a fun-filled day. Austin Huether ran varsity and placed second in 17:08. Daniel Burkhalter from Bison won the race in a 16:50. There were 18 runners in the race. Winning the meet was Dupree with 10 points, Philip second with 17, Bison third with 23 and fourth was Faith with 31.

Lady Eagles come home with win over Kadoka
By Coach Dani Herring The Wall Eagles took on an unbeaten Kadoka team on September 6th. First I appreciate all the fans making the road trip, we had a great crowd which always helps when playing close games. Kadoka came out in the first game with a 8-1 lead, before we came back to within two. It was a close game where we traded points until the final two point decision. In game two, Kadoka tried to exploit holes in our coverage, everyone did a really great job of adjusting, which is something we have been working on in practice. After dropping the third set by three points, we came back in the fourth with a convincing 25-13 final victory. We are looking forward to our first two home games, Tuesday, September 11th with St. Thomas More and Thursday, September 13th against Faith.

Gathered by Frances Poste Tyler Keyser made a walleye fishing trip from Wisconsin to meet his mom and dad at Lake Oahe. The walleye numbers weren’t high but his friend Jackie caught a 23 1/2 inch, Kirby caught a 21 1/2 inch and Cleo caught a 11 lb. northern. Sister Stacy, Tayah and Lenden Kjerstad met them on Saturday for games and a bonfire. Charlene Kjerstad went to Spearfish on Thursday and was on hand to take her aunt, Hazel Thompson, to the doctor for a check-up. She is doing fine after her hip surgery in June. That afternoon, Charlene, Claude and Cleo painted their mother’s (Bea Ramsey) house. Muriel helped, too. George and Lorna Moore attended a family gathering in Rapid City on Sunday to help Audrey Hoffman celebrate her birthday. With the “four day” school week, Wall School usually has Friday off, but since they had Labor Day off on Monday, there was school on Friday to make their four days. By the way, congratulations are due for the Wall School as they received a National Blue Ribbon Exemplary High Performance School Award for 2011-2012! Way to go! The First Interstate Bank, Wall, held a luncheon on Friday with very good food. There were a lot of people partaking. The free will offering funds go to the Meals Program in Wall. Friday evening, a baby shower was held for Shari (Swan) Gannon in the Methodist Church basement. Little Aiden Keith Lee Gannon received all sorts of nice things. The Senior Citizens (YAH) held their meeting at Prairie Village on Monday, September 10th, with 16 people attending. We had taken July and August off. Kay Leonard was hostess. Lyle and Viola Williams and Marvin and Norman Williams drove to Cedar Shores at Chamberlain on Sunday for the South Dakota Country Music Hall of Fame. There were several new inductees, but they knew two of them — Stringbean Swenson Hermosa, and Chip Bradley of Caputa. When they stopped to eat, they saw Marcine and Dean Patterson there, as their son Scott’s band, “Break Even”, played some — they were the host band. The benefit for Bart Cheney at the Golf Course on Sunday was a great success — golf, food and an auction. Good to hear when things go well. Dave and Linda LaFee, Chuck Van Vleck, Kurth and Sherry DeLand and Gary, Kathy and Shelly Stone spent last week camping at Lake McConaughy near Ogallala, Neb. The “Easy Readers” Book Club met Monday evening, the 10th, at
Pennington County Courant • September 13, 2012 •
the home of Claramae White. Linda LaFee was the co-hostess. Not many were in attendance but that is what happens sometimes. White River came to Wall on Monday to finish the football game that had been called off because of lightning. Final score Tigers 40, Wall Eagles 6. Hope Monday was our last HOT day for the season. Saw 104° on the bank. Tomorrow, Tuesday, is to be windy and much cooler and will be nice until Saturday — in the 80’s. Have a good week.

Submitted by Matthew Trask The kind citizens had a rather quiet week as fall dueled summer for control of the weather. Carolyn Anders and Twila Trask attended the volleyball tournament in Philip on Saturday, in particular to watch Belle Fourche, who won. Clyde Arneson went to New Underwood on Monday to watch the Labor Day Parade with his family. Clyde will reappear later in the ESN. Lawrence Burke went to Rapid City on Tuesday and on the way home caught the WREA appreciation supper at the Community Center in New Underwood. Clyde and Chase Arneson were Wednesday morning coffee guests at the Lawrence Burke residence and Clyde returned Sunday morning for some more. Ryan and Chrissy Elshere took Camry to the New Underwood Labor Day rodeo to compete in barrels, poles, goat tying and calf riding. Larry and Peggy Gravatt traveled to the State Fair in Huron, where they accepted an award recognizing the Gravatt ranch as being 125 years old. They were the only West River producers to do so. Byron and Cherry Denke of Wall, visited the Gravatts, Sunday afternoon. Charlotte Wilsey of Rapid City, spent Saturday at the John and Jean Linn residence. Andy Linn and Clyde Arneson were Tuesday morning coffee guests at the Morris Linn residence. The Morris Linn’s attended the Wall vs. New Underwood football game in New Underwood, Friday night. Shirrise joined Tiff Knuppe and Marsha Pluth for a morning of garage saleing in Rapid City, Friday; on Sunday, Shirrise hosted a stamp party and Clyde Arneson was a Sunday evening guest at the Morris Linns. Mary Kay Wilson ended her seasonal term of employment at the Wasta Rest Area on Sunday. Philip and Mary Kay join Josh and Amy Wolberg of Minneapolis in somewhat impatiently awaiting the arrival of Baby Wolberg, who as of press time had refused to do so. Kenny and Janet Wilson spent Sunday, Monday and Tuesday toodling through East River South Dakota. A highlight of the toodle, at least for Kenny, was viewing the gulch across which Jesse James' horse jumped after his failed raid on the bank in Northfield, Minn.. This Sunday, Kenny and Janet attended Aliah Tschetter's birthday party at Canyon Lake Park in Rapid City. Everyone is reminded of the Water Meeting with Tanse Hermann on Wednesday the 19th of September at 6:30 pm at the Elm Springs Hall/Fire Hall. The kind citizens advise you to ride your best horse to a bank robbing.
Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by Lloyd & Margee Willey Another Monday morning. Yesterday was chilly and to be comfortable for outside tea drinking in the morning, it was sweatshirt, jacket and a “blankie” to be cozy! This morning the sweatshirt sufficed so we know what we’ll be having this afternoon. So we say thank you for the beautiful morning and promise ourselves no whining this afternoon when it’s 90°! Last week, we enjoyed the New Underwood parade. It is always fun and no exception this year. Cars, classic and hot rod, horses (working) and horses (riden), horses tall and horses small. Even a very tiny donkey that looked very sweet. A nice touch was some Good Samaritan residents participating. Small towns and parades — always fun! Recently we were entertained as neighbor, Melanie Webber and her dog, Ravin were giving a “Border Collie Show”. Melanie was mowing her lawn and Raven was at her side moving things like leaves, twigs and debris the mower scattered — to clear the path for the next pass? Melanie doesn’t know Raven’s purpose, but assumes she feels useful with her job and doing what any self respecting Border Collie would do — work at the job at hand! Wasta has some turkeys in town, the feathered kind. Ben Franklin thought the turkey should be our national bird (because they were smarter?) than eagles. Had old Ben had his way what would we have for Thanksgiving? I wonder if these guys are smart enough to stay inside Wasta town limits the next few months. For now, they are amusing to watch. There also seems to be an abundance of meadow larks. Coming in for food and water? Carl and Anna Lee Humphrey will celebrate their 65th wedding anniversary this week — the 13th, which is Thursday. Congratulations! Jamy and Ray Williams are still patiently waiting for baby boy, Maverick, to make his appearance. The due date is the 12th and the doctor didn’t predict any earlier than that at last check-up. Jamy and Ray are glad all is well. Hazel Kalkbrenner is sharing her goodies from her garden and what a treat that is. Thank you for your dedicated gardening. There is nothing tastier than truly fresh tomatoes! Saturday afternoon, Dayton Skillingstad played his season opener in Wall. Dayton is on the Wall Eagles Mighty-Mite D.Q. team. He played a good defensive game and his teammates also played well. The final score was 35-7, Dayton and team of Wall Mighty Mites on top. Natalie Skillingstad is on the cheerleading squad and is also an enthusiastic cheerleader. Doreen thinks next Saturdays game will also be in Wall, but no time set as yet. Faye Bryan and I went to the fundraiser lunch in Wall at the First Interstate Bank, Friday. Proceeds went to help the local “Meals on Wheels”. The food was good and it is always fun to see friends at these functions. Wasta Volunteer fire fighters Kendall Kjerstad and Terry Schell responded to a fire call Sunday at David Eisenbraun’s place at Creighton. Sorry for that loss. Mary Lewis is HOME! and it is good to have her back. She did enjoy her time with son John Gibson and wife Smeda and their daughters, Uma and Suriya. The weather was beautiful and the time spent with grandbaby (3+ months) and big granddaughter (6+ years) was nearly perfect. Lloyd’s difficulty with inner ear infection and resulting vertigo is improving somewhat. He still has an odd little jig he does to regain his balance in tipsy time. Happy Trails!
The family of Delbert Sebade invite you to an Open House Sunday, September 16, 2012
when Delbert turns 95 years young.
Please stop ,by 707 Hustead St., Wall, SD, between 1:00 and 4:00 p.m. for a piece of birthday cake and wish Delbert a Happy Birthday. No gifts please.
Good Samaritan Society
We are still feeling the summer temperature, hopefully some cool down. The Therapy Dept. took residents to the Journey Museum and than ate out. Bob Grimm and Joe Bullwerek entertained our residents with old time music, and we also did a singa-long. Rev. Curtis Garland from the Wall and Creighton church, held worship service and communion. Alma Crosbie led our hymn sing. On Labor Day, residents watched the parade and were able to be outside. The Therapy Dept. took residents and they participated in the parade and threw out candy on Labor Day. Rev. Lloyd Edwards held worship service and Marti Aus led our hymn sing. Friday afternoon, Margaret Larsen and Joyce Wolken came and played cards with residents and we also played a dominoes game. Father Wm. Zandri held Mass on Wednesday. with Kenny Karp helping. Until next time…May God bless.

Take Action Now!
Several years ago, I remember quite clearly that there was this little thing left undone in my life. Since it was such a little thing I basically let it go, and time passed. Suddenly this issue surfaced again, this time just a tad bit bigger of a problem, and as before, I put it off. Time passed. A couple of months later, by the time it reared it's ugly head again, it was a monster. It ended up costing me huge amounts of money and an incredible amount of time. It caused embarrassment and was a very painful experience for me. It also taught me something-a lesson that has lasted me many years now. (Sometimes I just have to learn lessons the hard way, I guess.) This one I have learned well. Do not put things off! Today, my battle cry is "Take Action Now!" Putting things off until later is a bad habit that most of us have fallen into at one time or another. How about you? Are you a procrastinator, putting off until tomorrow, things you should be doing today? Heed these words and take action on something in your life that you have been putting off and begin to cultivate a new habit in your life. I encourage you to make a list of all the projects that you have started but not finished-all the "to do's" that have been hanging over your head, all those little things that have become huge-and prioritize them. Face up to those things you've been putting off and admit that you have been procrastinating, and then take action. You'll see that the battle is already half won! And what benefits you'll reap-less negative stress, a feeling of being productive, a sense of pride, savings of money, time, energy, and hassles, and probably an overwhelming desire to tackle the next item on your list. Remember the battle cry: Take Action Now!

The Looking Glass of Time
80 years ago… Ivan H. Crown and Rachel Evelyn Anderson were married Saturday, September 3rd at the Methodist Parsonage, Rev. Douglas officiating. The groom is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Orrin Crown and was born and has lived all of his life on a farm seven miles north of Wall. The bride is a daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Jacob Anderson, also having lived a number of years in this community and is a charming and gifted young woman. On Tuesday morning, September 6th, 60 students registered for school at Wall High School. A number of students are staying out for a week or two to finish the fall work at home. When these students arrive on the scene the enrollment will be increased appreciably. Fifteen Seniors, 22 Juniors, 12 Sophomores and 11 Freshmen compose this year’s enrollment. The City of Wall have completed the installation of a new 20 horse power engine and two inch pump for their water system. This pump has a capacity of 110 gallons a minute under 80 pounds pressure. This will furnish enough water to supply two fire hoses at the same time. There is plenty of water in the dam to last one and one-half years. There is between 30,000 and 40,000 gallons pumped each day. 70 years ago… Little Frankie Johnston was severely injured Sunday when a colt kicked the boy, causing a compound fracture of the lower jaw. Following treatment at the Wall hospital by Dr. Mills, he was taken to Rapid City to have a dentist make a suitable brace. He is expected to have to wear this brace several weeks. Harvey Stone has purchased the dray line from Bill Lovett, and started working Thursday morning. He plans to open an office on Main Street and combine it with a radio repair shop, as soon as he can find a suitable location. Bobby Bielmaier, young son of John Bielmaier’s, luckily was not seriously injured when he got in the way of the tractor and had the back wheel run over his hips.

Rew Walz officiating with a double ring ceremony. They were attended by Gladwin Paulsen and Miss Dorothy Huether. The groom is a graduate of the Wall high school and attended a year at the State College at Brookings. He is engaged in farming and ranching. The bride, since graduating from the Underwood high school in 1950, has been employed in Wall. Eleven seniors are among the 31 students who enrolled in Interior high school, last week.

About two a.m. Saturday morning the fire siren got out a number of Wall’s ambitious firemen to fight a prairie fire at the Dick Plashert place west of Wall. It had been started by lightning. A rain shower which accompanied the thunder storm put out the fire without much help from the firemen. 50 years ago… Miss Arla Carmichael, who graduated from the Methodist School of Nursing at Mitchell, last June, has received notification that she passed the State Board of Nursing.

The area of Physical Education provided 61 applicants, whereas English was second in line with 40. Applications were received from almost every state in the United State and some foreign countries. Burglars escaped with approximately 1,000 capsules and tablets of hard narcotic drugs from the pharmacy department at Wall Drug, Wednesday evening. Authorities said the thieves struck during store hours, taking advantage of an opportunity presented when the department was temporarily unoccupied by store personnel. The burglars used a screw driver to pry open a locked drawer in which narcotics are kept. Stolen were morphine and cocaine derivatives, codein compounds and other drugs, and apparently the thieves were selective in what they took, according to the Pennington County Sheriff ’s office. BIRTH: Born to Mr and Mrs. Paul Paulsen, a son, August 27 at Rapid City. Grandparents are Mr. and Mrs. Leon Klapperich and Mr. and Mrs. Delbert Paulsen.

Julia Hall, Rapid City, is his great-grandmother. The Wall Eagles girls basketball team continued their winning streak last week by beating Bennett County and Kyle. The girls defeated Bennett County here, last Tuesday night, by the score of 4538. Thursday night, Wall traveled to Kyle and beat the varsity team, 50-42.

The bride graduated from USD Vermillion and is a fourth grade teacher at Tripp-Delmont School. The groom attended USD Vermillion and is employed at the Federal Prison Camp in Yankton. On Friday evening, September 4, the Wall Eagles football team traveled to Bison for the opening game of the new season. The Eagles came out on top of the contest by a score of 48-6. The Wall City Park received a new look. Mickey and Minnie Mouse cheerfully welcome visitors to the southend of the City Park, and a new sandbox with a backdrop of disney characters sits near a sheltered picnic area. The installation of these new items were part of the Park’s face-lift this summer and were constructed by Juanita Schroeder and a group of students entering their Junior year this fall. 10 years ago… With no warning, extremely high winds and rain hit Wall, Saturday, causing numerous damage to the area. Saturday afternoon was a peaceful one until 9:00 p.m. when a storm from out of no where hit. The storm only lasted a brief period of time, but managed to cause power failure to the town and damage as well. Buildings and building projects were destroyed, trees were blown down, houses suffered weather damage and fences were blown over. Luckily no one was reported hurt during the storm.

FINANCIAL FOCUS
INVEST EARLy - AND WISELy - FOR COLLEGE Richard Wahlstrom www.edwardjones.com School is back in session. If you have school-age children, you’re probably busy getting them acclimated to another year of hitting the books. But the school years go by quickly, so it won’t be long before your kids are ready to head off to college. Will you be financially prepared to help them? It’s certainly a challenge, especially given rising costs of higher education. Consider these figures from the College Board: For the 2011-2012 school year, the average cost (including tuition, fees, room and board) was $17,131 per year for an in-state student attending a public, four-year college or university. For a student attending a private four-year school, the comparable average cost was $38,589 annually. And these numbers are likely to increase in the years ahead. So, what can you do to help meet the high costs of higher education? For starters, you need to save and invest — early and often. And you’ll also want to choose investments that are particularly well suited for college. Here are a few suggestions: •529 plan — When you invest in a 529 plan, all withdrawals will be free from federal income taxes, as long as the money is used for a qualified college expense for your child, or even your grandchild. (However, non-qualified withdrawals may be subject to federal, state and penalty taxes.) Contribution limits are quite high so, in all likelihood, you’ll be able to put as much as you want into a 529 plan; although you generally can’t exceed the annual gift tax exclusion, which is $13,000 per beneficiary in 2012. Furthermore, if you participate in your own state’s 529 plan, your contributions may be tax deductible on your state taxes. •Coverdell Education Savings Account — Depending on your income level, you can contribute up to $2,000 annually to a Coverdell Education Savings Account (ESA) in 2012. Your Coverdell earnings and withdrawals will be tax-free, provided you use the money for qualified education expenses. (Any non-education withdrawals from a Coverdell ESA may be subject to a 10 percent penalty.) Unlike a 529 Plan, in addition to college expenses, Coverdell funds can be used for kindergarten through 12th grade expenses and you can place Coverdell ESA contributions into virtually any investment you choose - stocks, bonds, certificates of deposit, etc. •Zero coupon bonds — A zero coupon bond is priced at a discount to its principal or face value. You receive the principal value when the bond matures. So, you could purchase a zero coupon bond that matures in the year your child is ready to go to college. Although you won’t receive regular interest payments throughout the life of the zero coupon bond, you’ll still be liable for the taxes on this interest. So, before purchasing a zero coupon bond, consult with your tax advisor. These investments have proven popular among many parents and grandparents. However, you’ll need to consult with your financial advisor to determine which college-savings vehicles are appropriate for your needs. But don’t wait too long — because, before you know it, today’s grade-schoolers will be packing for their college dorms.

THE PRIMARIES AND CHRISTIAN FAITH
By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam The presidential primaries are now in full swing, with nearly all the candidates talking confidently about winning, but it has long been a question just how much these primaries mean. Some, indeed, have started by winning in the primaries and have gone on to become president. But others have done well in the primaries, yet have never even come close to being nominated by their own parties. It’s something like this with faith. The primaries are like mental assent, or intellectual faith. Before a person can be saved he must, of course, know about sin and salvation and must give mental assent to what the Bible says about these things. He must agree that Christ died for man’s sins. But while intellectual faith is a good start, it is not enough to save you. You must go on from there to trust yourself to Christ, who died for our sins (I Cor. 15:3), otherwise your intellectual faith has done you no good. God wants our heart trust; it is this kind of faith that honors Him, and it is this kind of faith that saves. In Romans 10:9-13 He says: “If thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved. For with the heart man believeth unto righteousness; and with the mouth confession is made unto salvation. For the Scripture saith: Whosoever believeth on Him shall not be ashamed… For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” If Christ is not a risen, living Savior, He is no savior at all. We must believe this in our hearts if we are to call upon Him for salvation. Thank God that “He showed Himself alive, after His passion, by many infallible proofs” (Acts 1:3) and that millions have indeed found the peace and joy of sins forgiven through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and His redemptive work at Calvary.

Rieckman informed the board that the gymnastics team would like to practice in the community center for most of their season so their equipment can be left up after practice. The gymnastics parent group has raised the money to pay for it. There was a consensus by the board to WASP TOTAL FUNDS the community center. A project update was given by Rieckman.

The State requires all 9-12 coaches, whether paid or volunteer, to complete the coaching/first aid/concussion tests. There was a consensus by our board that all 6-12 coaches will complete those classes. There was also a consensus by the board for the head coaches to decide who volunteers as coaches for their team. The board should not take calls about this subject, but should refer any community members to the head coach. There was also discussion about the district paying for volunteer background checks and coaching classes. 4723. Williams moved to approve paying for volunteers’ background checks, but not the coaching classes. Seconded by Anderson. Motion carried. 4724. Cordes moved to approve Brady McDonnell, Nathan Kleinschmit, Dillon Anderson, and Jackson Anderson as volunteers for high school football and Tim Eisenbraun as a volunteer for middle school football. Seconded by Anderson. Motion carried. Next, Rieckman informed the board that Kent Anderson had requested a cell phone to be used for his athletic director duties. Mohr noted the cost would be $50 per month. Anderson addressed the board by saying he had one in Beresford and like the fact that people can reach him at anytime with a cell phone. He may not be as busy with the AD job here, but he sees it as a perk. Rieckman expressed that he felt the business manager and tech coordinator should also receive one. There was brief discussion on the needs of cell phones for particular jobs. 4725. Trask moved to approve purchasing a cell phone plan for Kent Anderson. Seconded by Williams. Motion carried. 4726. At 9:43 p.m., Johnson moved to go into Executive Session for the purpose of discussing personnel, according to SDCL 1-25-2. Seconded by Anderson. Motion carried. ________________ Niki Mohr, Business Manager

At 10:02 p.m., Chairperson Eisenbraun declared the meeting out of Executive Session. With no further business brought to the board, Chairperson Eisenbraun declared the meeting adjourned at 10:02 p.m. Respectfully submitted by Niki Mohr, Business Manager. ______________ Scot Eisenbraun, Chairperson
Elementary Principal Sykora guided the board through some of the district report card results. Our District has done very well compared to the State average/expectations. The results can be found on the South Dakota Department of Education website. Next, Business Manager Mohr discussed rental of the school bus with the board. A community member had requested this topic be discussed. After a brief discussion it was determined that Superintendent Rieckman will make decisions regarding use of the school bus. Elementary Principal Sykora informed the board that he is waiting on final information from area counselors before finishing the District’s Crisis Plan. Business Manager Mohr informed the board that the auditors began their audit of FY12 today. They will continue tomorrow and finish up on Friday if needed. Over the next month Mohr will work back and forth with the auditors on the financial statements that will then be submitted to the Department of Legislative Audit for review and approval. Mohr then referred the board to a handout showing a history of the general fund and fielded questions about the proposed budget. Next, Mohr asked the Board for approval to enroll the District in the SDRS Special Pay Plan. This plan would allow/require retirement payments to be made into this plan for the retirees to control after retirement. 4718. Anderson moved to approve enrolling the District in the Special Pay Plan with SDRS beginning with FY13. Seconded by Johnson. Motion carried.

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY
with Dr. James Dobson
Dr. Dobson Answers your Questions
QUESTION: I'm planning to remarry, but my future stepchildren are against the marriage. As a matter of fact, they seem to hate me. Do you think I should go through with it? ANSWER: You're in a difficult position. Entering a second marriage that involves "blending" a family is never easy. We hate to throw a wet blanket over your hopes and dreams, but the fact of the matter is that most remarriages involving children don't last: research indicates that 60 to 73 percent of them end in divorce. And if the kids are openly hostile
and opposed to the marriage, it stands to reason that you can expect an even rougher ride than the average couple in your situation. So should you go through with it? We can't answer that question for you. Without more detailed knowledge about your past relationship, your future spouse, the children, the background of your
relationship and the circumstances in which you're planning to set up your new household, we simply aren't in a position to make definitive statements concerning your chances of success. But we can tell you this much: blended families present parenting challenges that must be navigated with extreme care. An unsuspecting stepparent may be suddenly confronted with a whole set of long-standing alliances and power struggles. If you do decide to move forward with your plans, bear in mind that you're going to have to work extrahard to overcome the barriers and develop positive bonds with your new stepchildren. It won't be easy, but it's part of the challenge of building a successful blended family. It will mean taking a sincere interest in the kids and spending lots of one-on-one time with each of them. In particular, you'll want to take special care to praise them at every opportunity instead of simply punishing them when they misbehave. In other words, make an intentional effort to "catch them
being good." Because of the unique challenges involved, we recommend that those who are planning to remarry and "reconstitute" a family should seek professional counseling well in advance of the wedding. Couples who attempt to "go it alone" may be setting themselves up for frustration and failure. Expectations, roles and parenting styles should be clarified and openly discussed with the help of an experienced marriage-and-family therapist. Send your questions to Dr. Dobson, c/o Focus on the Family, PO Box 444, Colorado Springs, CO 80903. This question and answer is excerpted from books authored by Dr. James Dobson and published by Tyndale House Publishers.

Helping students manage money
Money management is one skill that can be difficult for young adults to master as they head off on their own. But no matter what stage of life - whether they're entering college or the work force - every young adult should learn how to handle their money. Establish a Budget •Sit down together with your student and map out all monthly expenses. Include room and board or rent, books, supplies, food, personal care and medications, transportation, gas, entertainment (including dining out, movies and walking around money, etc.), and payment for phone, mobile devices, cable and Internet access. Then, figure out income. This can include money from a job, financial aid, student loans and any support from you. Income and expenses need to balance. There are plenty of online tools you can use to figure out a budget. Some, such as www.Mint.com or some bank websites, can help students manage their budgets, making it easy for them to take care of it themselves. There are also budgeting tips and worksheets at websites such as www.SmartAboutMoney.org. How to Stick to the Budget •Prioritize needs vs. wants. It may seem like a latte every morning is a necessity to jump-start the day, but those kinds of little expenses can add up quickly. A recent study by Westwood College found that 40 percent of the average student's budget is being spent on "discretionary" spending; included in that is entertainment (6.5 percent), apparel and services (6.7 percent), travel and vacation (4.7 percent). Have your student do the math on how much some of their "necessities" will cost them, and then talk about how to weigh purchase decisions. •Find ways to spend less. A little planning can help young adults spend less and get more value for their dollar. •Cellphone - Avoid overage charges with an unlimited plan. For example, with Cricket Wireless, you can pay an affordable monthly fee for all-inclusive talk, text, data and music rate plans for some of the most popular smartphones available. Cricket also includes a service called Muve Music that gives students unlimited song downloads as part of their plan. Learn more at www.MyCricket.com. •Food - Coupons and digital deals can cut the costs of dining out. Look into the college meal plan - and use it. Save on snacks by stocking up at the grocery store instead of buying from a vending machine or convenience store. •Clothing - Thrift stores, consignment shops and yard sales are affordable ways to find something fun to wear. •Entertainment - Encourage them to take advantage of free activities on campus with their student ID. When going out with friends, advise your student to decide how much he or she can spend, then only take that much money with them. •Be smart about credit cards. Many students sign up for a credit card right away, and before they know it, they are thousands of dollars in debt. Make sure they understand the impact of interest rates. Also, discuss setting limitations on using a credit card to avoid nonacademic debt, such as using it only for emergencies, travel or school expenses, or only charging what they can pay back on time the next month (including interest). Equipping your student with some basic financial skills will help them make wise money choices now and for the rest of their lives.
On behalf of Wounded Knee the Museum, we would like to thank the Wall Fire Department for their dedication and heroism in suppressing the fire on September 2nd. As we move forward, your service to the community will serve as an inspiration to us.
