School board reviews state New District Ranger is a familiar face in a new place report card; staff changes
by Laurie Hindman Wall School Board held their August meeting on Tuesday, August 14, at 8:00 p.m at the school library. The agenda was approved for the meeting. Consent agenda was approved for: •Minutes of July 12, board meeting. •August claims. •Approved addendum for Kent Anderson to add Activities/Athletic Director to his contract and to move to lane B+25 Step 16 due to completion of one credit. •Approved addendum for Dave Ermish to be removed as Activities/Athletic Director from his contract and to add assistant middle school boys basketball to his contract. •Approved resignation request from Jackie Roseth, WASP assistant, with regret. •Approved new custodian Lonnie Jensen. •Approved lane change for Rachel McConaghy to M+30. Superintendent/Secondary Principal Dennis Rieckman handed out the state report card. Elementary Principal Chuck Sykora explained the report card to the board. He said, “All three levels of the Wall School scored above the state average and exceeded the goal in every category.” Rieckman noted the students did very, very well. Business Manager Niki Mohr informed the board she had received a call from an individual who wanted to rent one of the school vehicles for a personal activity. Rieckman said, “The school has rented the bus to Badlands National Park to tour their dignitaries around the park and would like the discretion to rent it to the park.” The board agreed that he could continue to do so and school vehicles will not be rented to private individuals. Sykora reported he is working on the crisis plan and is waiting to hear back from New Underwood and Kadoka to complete the plan. Mohr reported the 2012 audit is under way and should be completed by the end of the week. Aimee Paulsen is back to work full-time. Mohr asked the board to approve the Special Pay Plan for teachers which would allow them to decide how they want to be paid after they retire. A motion was made and approved for the Special Pay Plan. Mohr has received a $6,000 bill from the county for the pass election that was held. She related the 2008, election cost the school district $1,500. She will write a letter to the county to see if the amount can be changed. The board agreed to not combine elections in the future. The board approved home school applications 19.2 and 19.3. They also approved an open enrollment application. Third reading for Educating Homeless Children policy was approved. Rieckman passed out cross country rules and Coach Karol Patterson passed out the cross country schedule. Patterson went over the schedule with the board members. She has three meets which won’t interfere with school and would like to add Spearfish to that list. Patterson went on to say that there are four meets during school days but they are later in the day. Board member Mary Williams has an issue with the number of meets during school time. She said, “Meets could be hosted on a Friday or Saturday and would like the athletic director to look at the cross country and track schedule.” She noted, it is our obligation to be conservative and let’s see if we can squeeze down the number of meets so we don’t have to hire a subsitute. She went on to say the best person to have in the classroom is the teacher. Rieckman will have the athletic director look into this issue. The board approved the 2012 - 2013 cross country rules. A consensus was given by the board to allow gymnastics practice to be held in the Wall Community Center Grand Hall. The gymnastic team will pay for the rent and will be responsible for any cleanup at the community center. Rieckman gave an update on the Big White School. They are waiting for siding and an air conditioner has been installed in the school. New carpet has been installed in the Wall School entry way. Volunteer coach requirements requires all coaches to take exams if they participating in coaching. A motion was made and approved to have volunteer coaches pay for their own classes and the school will pay for their background check after they have been cleared. Rieckman added who decides who can volunteer to coach should be left up to the head football coach. It’s their decision who they want on the sideline. Board member Todd Trask agreed and said, “The head coach should be in charge from the top to the bottom of the program.” He noted, we are hard pressed to get volunteers. A motion was approved for the list of volunteer coaches. Head Football Coach Kent Anderson requested a cell phone to use as athletic director. Board approved his request. Rieckman informed the board the projected enrollment for high school students is 80 students. He would like to eliminate the pop machines at the school and powerhouse. They sell out of juice and water while the pop machine is rarely used. They will move the pop machine into the teachers lounge. A motion to enter into executive session for the purpose of discussing personnel, according to SDCL 1-25-2 was approved. With no motions being made after executive session the meeting was adjourned. Alan Anderson began his formal duties as the new Wall District Ranger earlier this summer, but is already well known because of completing two previous Acting Ranger roles in 2009 and earlier this year. Anderson said, “I am very much looking forward to working with the local community, Grassland Visitor Center and Wall District personnel, adjacent public land managers, and local governments in helping to manage this amazing National Grassland resource. This area is unique in the nation for its beauty, botanical and wildlife diversity and multiple sustainable use opportunities and I feel fortunate to be able to play a part in helping to manage it.” Prior to coming to Wall, Alan spent three years as the Forest Engineer for the Nebraska National and Grassland in Forests Chadron, Nebraska and nine years as a supervisory civil engineer for the Black Hills National Forest. Prior to his time with the Forest Service, Alan worked for two years as road construction inspector with the South Dakota Department of Transportation in Rapid City and 27 years as a Commissioned Officer for the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration working in marine engi-
neering and hydrographic surveying. This work put him in, or through, all of the states of the United States including their coastal waters and several Canadian provinces. His last assignment there was as Commanding Officer of the NOAA Ship RAINIER, a 231 foot survey vessel, conducting hydrographic surveys in the coastal water of Alaska. Alan holds a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the South Dakota School of Mines and Technology, a Master of Science degree in Management from the Naval Postgraduate
School in Monterey, California and has completed the Executive Seminar for Natural Resource Management at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. When working for the Black Hills National Forest, he was a member of the Whispering Pines Volunteer Fire Department near Rapid City, and served as Fire Chief during his final two years. Alan and his wife Susan reside in Rapid City. They were raised in Sturgis and Mobridge, South Dakota respectively. Their two grown children, also engineers, are working and residing in Denver, Colorado.
Investing in Ellsworth
By Governor Dennis Daugaard In early August, I had an opportunity to meet with U.S. Secretary of Defense Leon Panetta. I also met Assistant Secretary of the Air Force Terry Yonkers to discuss Ellsworth Air Force Base and its importance to our nation. Our discussion took place at a meeting of the Association of Defense Communities, where I accepted an award on behalf of the Ellsworth Development Authority. Since 2009, when the state Legislature established the Ellsworth Development Authority, it has been working hard to support Ellsworth Air Force Base. In just three years, the Authority has reduced encroachments around the base, used excess Air Force land to develop a commercial retail area, and donated 20 acres to the Douglas School District. In addition, this fall the Authority will begin construction of a regional wastewater treatment plant to serve both Ellsworth and the city of Box Elder. The combined plant will save the Air Force an estimated $8 million. These joint efforts are crucial to the long-term viability of this important military installation. As we face the possibility of cuts to the Department of Defense budget and the potential for another round of Base Realignment and Closure, the Ellsworth Development Authority will continue to invest in and around Ellsworth. South Dakota has been a strong partner with the U.S. Air Force for 70 years, and we are working hard to ensure that we maintain that partnership for years to come. The Association of Defense Communities (ADC) awarded Ellsworth “Defense Community of the Year” at its recent annual meeting. The ADC consists of 200 communities, states, and organizations with a significant military presence. For the Ellsworth Development Authority to receive the ADC’s top honor is a strong endorsement of South Dakota’s efforts to make Ellsworth the best possible home for the Air Force and the brave men and women who defend our nation.
Interagency effort results in successful rescue
On Thursday morning, August 16, 2012, the Pennington County Dispatch Center received a report that two hikers had fallen up to 200 feet from Sheep Mountain Table in the South Unit of the Badlands National Park. Badlands Search and Rescue, Pennington County Search and Rescue, Rapid City Fire Department and Oglala Sioux Parks and Recreation Authority were dispatched and responded to the area. Pennington County high angle rescue team and an Air National Guard helicopter were on standby. Responding units discovered two hikers stranded below the edge of the table. Jake Williams, 24, from Plano, Texas, and a 16 year-old male were traveling with the Grace Chinese Baptist Church. The group leader had hiked this area of the park and was familiar with the terrain. The two men appeared to have lost their footing and slid into an area where there was no safe means up or down the table’s sidewall. Rescuers set up a line to secure the hikers, and Pennington County used a raising and lowering system to successfully lift the hikers to the top of the table. There were no injuries. Incident Commander and Badlands Cedar Pass District Ranger, Eric Yount stated “This was a very successful rescue operation involving many of our Badlands partners. The safety of our visitors and rescuers is always paramount, and this operation showcased a terrific team effort.”
State Report Card now available
The 2012 Report Card, which details student progress on South Dakota’s state assessment, is now available online. There was a slight uptick in reading and math scores on this year’s assessment, with 75.5 percent of students scoring either proficient or advanced in reading. That was up about one-tenth of a percentage point from last year. The percent of students scoring proficient or advanced in math went from 76.5 percent a year ago to 76.7 percent this year. The Dakota STEP and Dakota STEP-A were administered to about 62,000 students in grades 38 and 11 last spring. The Dakota STEP-A is an alternate version of the assessment for students who have a significant cognitive disability. South Dakota’s statewide graduation rate was 83.16 percent, down only slightly from 83.39 percent last year. The graduation rate was calculated using the federally mandated four-year cohort model. “This year marks a transition as we move forward with a new accountability system for South Dakota,” said state Secretary of Education Dr. Melody Schopp. “Beginning with the 2012-13 school year, we will be looking at school performance in broader, more holistic terms, using multiple indicators to assess a school’s performance.” The multiple indicators will still include student achievement on state assessments, but that measure will be balanced with other factors, according to Schopp. In the long-term, schools will be evaluated using indicators such as academic growth of students, teacher and principal effectiveness, school climate, and college and career readiness at the high school level. The 2012 Report Card, including district- and school-level results, is available on the Department of Education’s web site at www.doe. sd.gov.

Department seeks sites to place motor vehicle registration self-service terminals
The state Department of Revenue, Division of Motor Vehicles, is seeking locations throughout South Dakota to place motor vehicle registration self-service terminals (SSTs). Currently, four self-service terminals are available in South Dakota. The first terminal was installed in the Public Safety Building in Pennington County in December 2010. Two terminals were placed in Sioux Falls in 2011; located at the Get-N-Go, located on Arrowhead Parkway and Dawley Farms, and the Hy-Vee Food Store, located on 49th and Louise. An additional terminal is available during working hours at the Department of Revenue Pierre Office at 445 East Capitol Avenue. The 24-hour SST is a fully automated motor vehicle registration renewal station and dispenses license plate renewal tags on the spot. A vehicle owner can navigate through the easy touch screen (voice assistance available) with a valid South Dakota driver’s license; South Dakota identification card; or if a company, the information provided on its renewal notice. Once the payment has been submitted and the transaction is complete, the license renewal tags and vehicle registration are dispensed directly from the machine. The SST allows vehicle owners to register up to 90 days prior and 30 days after the expiration of their current license tags. A $2 convenience fee per vehicle is assessed. Vehicle owners from any county can use the terminal with the proper identification. Acceptable forms of payment include electronic check, credit cards (MasterCard or Discover only), or ATM/debit cards supported by Pulse, Star, NYCE and Accel. "The terminals placed in Rapid City and Sioux Falls have been very successful,” said Division of Motor Vehicles Director Deb Hillmer. “We want to offer the convenience of self-service terminals throughout the state.” The request-for-site proposal outlines specific criteria a location must meet to be considered an eligible site. The criteria include 24/7 accessibility, an indoor or secure vestibule with sufficient heating and cooling, as well as providing other equipment and electrical needs. The full request-for-site proposal with detailed information and a complete criteria list may be reviewed on the Division of Motor Vehicles website accessible at http://dor.sd.gov/ Prospective SST location providers may make inquiries to Division of Motor Vehicles Director Deb Hillmer by phone at 605-7735747, by fax to 605-773-2549, or by email at debra.hillmer@state.sd.us with the subject line “RFP for SST Site Proposal.” Proposals must be submitted to the Division of Motor Vehicles by 5:00 p.m. (CDT) on Friday, September 14, 2012.
Social Security News
Social Security and Women By Kathy Petersen Social Security Public Affairs Specialist August 26 is known as Women’s Equality Day. On that date in 1920, the 19th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution was signed, giving women the right to vote. Social Security treats men and women equally. Men and women with identical earnings histories are treated exactly the same. However, there are things women in particular should know about Social Security. Although treated equally by Social Security, there are trends and differences in lifestyle that can affect benefits. For example, women tend to care for many people: spouses, children, and parents. Taking time away from the workplace to care for a newborn child or aging parent can have an impact on your future Social Security benefits. Also, despite significant strides through the years, women are more likely to earn less over a lifetime than men. Women are less often covered by private retirement plans, and they are more dependent on Social Security in their retirement years. And, women tend to live about five years longer than men, which means more years depending on Social Security and other retirement income or savings. If a woman is married to a man who earns significantly more than she does, it is likely she will qualify for a larger benefit amount on his record than on her own. Want to learn more? Visit our Women’s page at www.socialsecurity.gov/women. Follow the link on that page to our publication, What Every Woman Should Know. You can read it online, print a copy, or listen to it on audio. We provide alternate media as well to reach as many women as possible and to provide the information the way you’d like to receive it. Learning about your future Social Security benefits and how men and women are treated just the same in the eyes of Social Security: what better way to celebrate Women’s Equality Day?

Appreciating our Wildland Fire Units
take care of the situation. But in the last year and a half, I have come to really appreciate the tireless dedication of the men and women that make up our Wildland Fire Division based in the Black Hills. As one of the seven divisions of the South Dakota Department of Agriculture, they cooperate with local volunteer fire departments, independent contractors, and the U.S. Forest Service fire crews to protect the lives and property of our State’s citizens. When the situation gets real serious, they morph into one of the 33 National Type II Incident command teams with not only local, but also, regional responsibilities. In the past few months, they have answered calls to Wyoming (twice) and Colorado to help battle fires. Their most recent assignment was on the Rosebud Indian Reservation where they coordinated 600 personnel with ground and aerial resources to battle a fire that burned over 43,000 acres with no structures lost...an amazing accomplishment! Last year’s tragic loss of one of our own, and recently, the four airmen from a crash of the North Carolina Air National Guard C130 helping us fight one of our fires, underscores the danger and risk inherent of firefighting, regardless of the location. When our crews are not fighting fires, they are mitigating the dangers of wildland fire by thinning and removing fuels, going to training and conducting numerous training exercises for the volunteer fire departments all across South Dakota. As of August 1, there have been 1,469 fires reported here in South Dakota, burning over 226,000 acres, making this one of the most active fire seasons on record. An average year burns about 52,000 acres. I don’t take fires for granted anymore and with our dry weather persisting, we are not out of the “fire season” yet. So, the next time you see your local public safety officials, thank them for putting their lives on the line for you, your family and your property.

By Walt Bones South Dakota Secretary of Agriculture As I was growing up in southeastern South Dakota, prairie and forest fires were not a concern. Every once in a while, a trash fire might get away from us or maybe a bearing would go out on the baler and a red-hot ball bearing would start some grass on fire, but a couple of us with scoop shovels could

Catfish record broken. One of the longest standing state fish record in South Dakota, a blue catfish caught by Edward Elliot in 1959, is a thing of the past. On July 21, Steve Lemmon from Elk Point grabbed his own place in the record books by landing a 99 pound, four ounce blue catfish from the Big Sioux River, edging out the previous record by two pounds, four ounces. With the aid of only a rod, reel and a creek chub for bait, Lemmon managed to wrangle in the trophy fish from his fishing hole in Union County. His fish stacks up well with those from nearby states. The Ne-
braska state record blue catfish weighed in at 100 pounds, eight ounces, while neighboring Iowa currently boasts a state record blue catfish of 101 pounds. Kansas, a state known for having some large catfish, has a slightly smaller state-record blue cat weighing it at 94 pounds even. State fishing records for South Dakota can be viewed at http://gfp.sd.gov/fishingboating/state-fish-recordslist.aspx. If you believe you have caught a qualifying fish, the state record fish application and guidelines can be found at the same website.
The South Dakota Brand Board announces an increase in the brand inspection fee to 90 cents per head, effective September 1, 2012. The brand inspection fee has been 80 cents since 2007. Higher costs of the inspection program necessitated the larger fee that is charged for required ownership inspections of cattle, horses and mules before their sale, slaughter or removal from the Livestock Ownership Inspection Area west of the Missouri River. State Brand Board Director Larry Stearns also reminds ranchers that, as of July 1, leaving the
ownership inspection area without inspection is a Class 1 misdemeanor with a maximum penalty of $2,000 and one year in jail. Because the drought has prompted earlier fall cattle sales, Stearns says producers needing local inspections should contact their brand inspector as early as possible before shipping day to avoid delays. For more information on the inspection fee or to contact an inspector, call the South Dakota State Brand Board at 877-5740054 or visit www.sdbrandboard. com.

Lewis and Clark: Investigators
what Clark described in his journals as a most beautiful landscape, with numerous herds of buffalo feeding in various directions and the plain extending without interruption as far as eye could see. Spirit Mound, as the hill is now called, has been restored to native prairie. It is one of the most significant stops on the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail because it is one of the few places where historians know that the explorers actually stood there. As the expedition journeyed further up the Missouri River, an Arikara legend captured Clark’s imagination. The legend was that a man and a woman were in love, but the girl’s parents would not let them marry. The pair and their dog wandered off to mourn. All turned to stone gradually, beginning at their feet. They fed on grapes, and the woman has a bunch of grapes yet in her hand, Clark wrote in his journal on October 13, 1804. The Arikara pay great reverence to the stones, Clark wrote. He paid reverence to them by naming a creek Stone Idol Creek in their honor. The stones can be found on the northeast corner of West Pollock Resort near Pollock. This moment in South Dakota history is provided by the South Dakota Historical Society Foundation, the nonprofit fundraising partner of the South Dakota State Historical Society. The South Dakota Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre is an official site on the Lewis and Clark National Historic Trail. Find the Foundation on the web at www.sdhsf.org.

The legend was that any human who approached would be killed. That legend was apparently enough to make Captains Meriwether Lewis and William Clark want to find out if it was true. The captains, accompanied by a contingent of nearly four dozen men, had set off on May 14, 1804, from Camp Dubois near St. Louis, Mo., on their journey to the Pacific coast and back. As they traveled up the Missouri River, the captains heard about a cone-shaped hill about eight miles north of what is now Vermillion. Called Paha Wakan by the Lakota, the American Indian tribes in the area believed the hill to be the home of sprits or devils. The devils were reported to be 18inches high, human in form, but with large heads and armed with sharp arrows that could kill all persons who attempted to approach the hill. The tribes in the area would not go near the place. Accompanied by 10 or 11 men and Lewis’ Newfoundland dog, Seaman, Lewis and Clark set out on August 25, 1804, to hike to the top of the hill. They lived to explore another day, as they found no devils. What they did find was
South Dakota's Center for Farm/Ranch Management is expanding its program to West River
David Koupal, a former rancher of registered Angus cattle near Dante, S.D., is looking for producers in western South Dakota to join the program currently serving about 130 farm operations mostly East River. The goal of the program, operated through the Mitchell Technical Institute, is to help ranchers and farmers enhance their management skills and develop profitable business models for their individual operations. Instructors meet with producers at their farms or ranches. Koupal will be working out of his new home/office in Hot Springs, S.D., in the Black Hills. He's been speaking at meetings and talking with producers in the past few weeks to find clients who would like to enter the program. There's been a lot of great interest. I don't see any problems with getting a lot of clients, Koupal, who was a participant in the program for 12 years, said. Before when the center only had the office in Mitchell, ranchers out west thought it was too far away. However, Koupal said he will be readily available with his office in the Hills and will be making trips across the West River area from Lemmon on the North Dakota border to Martin near the Nebraska border to meet one-on-one with producers. I'm really excited about being out west, he said. Nowadays ranching is a business. You have to make the right management decisions. We offer information, but leave it to the producers to make the decision on what they want to do. Koupal said banks and the Farm Credit Services of America are really seeing the benefit from the program. We look at the books, costs and try to keep producers on task with managing skills, he said. At the end of the year, the instructors do an analysis on the operation where they look at such things as debt ratio, loan capability and net worth. Then when the producer has to to go the bank, they can bring in the forms we've worked on and say this is what I'm doing. It makes it a lot easier to get operating and long-term loans, he said. MTI President Greg Von Wold said the program is the hidden gem of agriculture management in the state. The average net cash income of participants in the program is 35 percent higher and net cash income per acre is three percent higher than that of those South Dakota producers not participating in the program, according to the USDA/NASS Census, Von Wold said. He said the expansion to West River is a great asset for the entire state. Will Walter, another instructor in the program who works in eastern South Dakota and farms near Fedora, said there were 100 farms in the program last year and it has grown to 130 this year. With the addition of Koupal in the west and adding more producers in other parts of the state, the goal is to reach about 180 to 200 farms in the next few years. Walter said they would also like to add an instructor in the Pierre area eventually to serve producers along the Missouri River. Walter, who covers the Madison, Huron, Brookings and Watertown areas, works out of the Mitchell office with two other instructors. Chris Downs serves the south central region of South Dakota, while longtime instructor Roger DeRouchey works with producers in the southeastern part of the state. Another instructor, Dawn Melikant, covers northeast South Dakota and works out of Aberdeen. The maximum enrollment per instructor is 45 producers. This allows instructors sample time to work with producers on an individual level on a continuous basis. Walter was also a participant in the program for 12 years before becoming an instructor in September of last year. I enjoy helping people, he said. I know things can get frustrating, but I like to see people grow in their operations and develop the skills needed to satisfy lenders. Koupal will work with young producers who have no experience in accounting or some other financial management skills and need the Level One training to meet Farm Service Agency (FSA) requirements. He will also work in the Level Two phase of the course, which is ongoing where instructors meet with the producers, all on a confidential basis, to work more indepth on financial, marketing and other management skills. The program is sponsored in part by FCS, South Dakota Pork Producers Council, South Dakota Wheat Commission, South Dakota Soybean Research and Promotion Council, South Dakota Corn Utilization Council and North Central Farmers Elevator. Most recently, the program has been collaborating with SDSU Extension to bring more financial and marketing stability to the West River area. Producers interested in the program in the West River can contact Koupal on his cellphone at 605299-6163 or school number at 605995-7193. His email address is david.koupal@mitchelltech.edu. Others interested in the program can call call 1-800-684-1969 at the Mitchell institute.

RotH IRA: FoR YouR RetIRemeNt ... AND BeYoND Richard Wahlstrom www.edwardjones.com If you’re somewhat familiar with investing, you may know that the Roth IRA is a great retirementsavings vehicle. But are you aware that some of its benefits can also pay off for the next generation of your family? To understand why this is so, it’s necessary to be familiar with a Roth IRA’s features. For starters, when you contribute to a Roth IRA, your earnings have the potential to grow tax free, provided you don’t start taking withdrawals until you’re 59½ and you’ve had your account at least five years. The amounts you contributed aren’t taxed when withdrawn because you’ve already paid taxes on the money you put in. And the potential for tax-free earnings can continue even when your beneficiaries inherit your Roth IRA, though you’ll need to consult with your tax advisor on this issue. A Roth IRA also offers other features that can help you build resources for retirement while possibly helping your surviving family members. For one thing, you can contribute to your Roth IRA for as long as you have some earned income, up to the contribution limits, and as long as you meet certain income limitations. Even if you’ve officially “retired,” you might do some consulting or part-time work. So you could put some of your earnings into your Roth IRA. This ability to keep funding your Roth IRA virtually indefinitely can give you more flexibility in managing your retirement income — and, depending on how you do manage that income and what your other objectives may be, you may also end up with more money that could be left to your beneficiaries. Also, unlike a traditional IRA or a 401(k), a Roth IRA does not require you to start taking minimum distributions at age 70½. In fact, you are never required to withdraw money from your Roth IRA. And by leaving your account intact for as long as possible, you’ll potentially have more money available for a variety of options — one of which may involve leaving sums to your beneficiaries. Your nonspouse beneficiaries must take annual required minimum distributions, but they have the option to take the distributions over their lifetime. Keep in mind, though, that your Roth IRA is part of your estate for purposes of federal estate taxes. In 2012, your estate would be subject to these taxes if it were worth more than $5.12 million (or less, if you made certain gifts). In 2013, however, this amount is scheduled to drop to $1 million unless Congress acts on this issue. (Some states also have estate taxes that apply at amounts less than the federal amount.) In any case, if you have a sizable estate, you should consult with your tax and legal advisors. When you invest in a Roth IRA, your goal, first and foremost, is to help fund your retirement. In fact, basically all your decisions regarding your Roth IRA — how much to contribute, where to invest the money and when to begin taking withdrawals — should be based on your own retirement goals. However, as a side benefit to investing in a Roth IRA, you may find that you could help out the next generation, or two, of your family.
If you see our “papa” wish him Happy Birthday on August 27th!!

James W. “Jim” Gottsleben, age 83 of Philip, S.D., died Wednesday, August 15, 2012, at the Philip Nursing Home. James William Gottsleben was born April 14, 1929, to William and Helen (Gehan) Gottsleben in Pierre. Jim grew up ranching and lived most of his life on the Gottsleben Ranch, which was homesteaded by his grandparents in 1907. Jim graduated from Philip High School in May 1947 and attended Black Hills State University that summer. He began his teaching career at Alfalfa Valley School, located three miles from his home place. He taught there two years followed by another two years at Enterprise School. During this time he lived at home (due to his
Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by Lloyd & Margee Willey Stanley and Kathy McNabb, granddaughters Amelia and Eliza Wilson, Alto, Wyo., and Faye Bryan joined Gary and Connie Cawell, Lancaster, Mo., at the Red Rock for a great visit and lunch. Gary and Connie spent several summers at Faye Bryan’s ranch in the Cedar Butte area where he trained bird dogs, they are now spending late summer training in the Presho area, where pheasants are plentiful. Friday morning, Wanda Hall’s birthday was celebrated with Stanley’s great blueberry pancakes and Kathy’s coffee. Wanda’s birthday was the day before, she reported phone calls from coast to coast. Joining the birthday celebration were Eliza and Amelia Wilson and Faye Bryan. The McNabb granddaughters will finish the week in Wasta and return home on Saturday, the 18th. It has been fun having them in Wasta. They’ve enjoyed riding their grandmother’s horse, Reddie (he is not quite big enough to accumulate both girls at once), but they seem happy to take turns and Reddie appeared to enjoy their time and attention, as well. It was observed Friday that the girls were having fun with Faye and her “mule” named Jenny. It is such a pleasure to have these great kids here! Wednesday, Faye went to Rapid City with Sheila Drees, taking care of errands, some fun with a friend on a cool day and finishing with neighbors, Margee and Lloyd inviting themselves for a supper of “store cooked chicken and salads” and a bottle of wine. Lloyd had a big day in Rapid City also. I had a big day in Rapid City, so these three wise ones combined resources and had a great evening! Faye gave me a super tease about my watering incident. All I will say is that it involved my cat, a kinked hose and a connection too far away to walk to and turn off the water coming into the hose. Well, I unkinked the hose all right, the cat leapt and fled and I leapt and squealed. Faye is still laughing. It seems that the week has been busy. Or is it just with cooler weather the energy level in the air kind of puts a zing in your step! I got the Cal-Nev-Ara bit wrong again — had it ending in “i” not “a”. Apologies to Dick and Gay. The Hadlocks are excellent photographers so I would bet they have many photos to browse through and enjoy again the summer visits from all the family members. News of Marilyn Keyser from Ruby Keyser: Marilyn has been through an incredibly difficult series of treatments to control the cancer found last spring. At this time, she is doing all that she can to regain her strength and is looking forward to a trip to be with family (the end of August) in South Dakota. Marilyn, your courage and determination are admirable! We look forward to seeing you in Wasta! Thursday was WTL Club in Rapid City at Joan Sutton’s home. Dorothy Anderson kindly invited me to ride with her and I never pass an opportunity for a visit and day out with these Elm Springs friends. Present were Kellie Linn, Jean Linn, Margaret Nachtigall, RoseMary Trask, Myrna Smith, Mary Cress, Joan Sutton, Dorothy Anderson and Margee Willey. Business was concluded and time for treats and catching up on family news and summer activities. Another good day. Jean Linn continues to do well after her stroke last spring. It was good to touch base with these gals. A bonus — Shirrise, Kassandra and Laken Linn popped in for a quick hello and while Laken was not happy, we did get a peek at this pretty little baby girl and recent addition (June 30) to the family of Morris, Shirrise and Kassandra Linn. Friday morning, the fire alarm at the fire hall went off and we noticed smoke on the hill to the north. After the fire trucks took off, we drove up the Elm Springs Road to investigate. What we saw was the fire on the east side of the road and a baler and several bales were burning, and quite a large area was scorched and blackened, on Sundquist’s place. Had the wind picked up or shifted the story would have been different and more serious. We appreciate the fire departments for their quick response and neighboring ranchers, who came to help put out the fire. Saturday, Lloyd and I went to Silver City for the third annual Rapid Shifter’s reunion. This club was begun in early 50’s, with Dick Cordes the first presentident of the club. We’ve enjoyed this yearly gettogether and a couple nights spent in Silver City. Anna Lee Humphrey had guests for the Wednesday morning cinnamon roll and coffee, tasty treat time, in the friendship room at Good Samaritan. Daughter Marilyn Stover and husband Carl couldn’t pass on that opportunity! The Humphrey family also planned a Saturday for Anna Lee to be at home for a chicken dinner with daughter Peggy and husband Roger Gilleam from Gillette, Marilyn and Dave Stover of Owanka, and Linda Opstedahl of Union Center. Carl said the day was “a very good one with fried chicken and all the ‘fixings’ and shrimp. Anna Lee enjoyed it so much!” Happy Trails!

Eleanor Louise Vifquain was born May 9, 1919, in Springview, Neb., the daughter of Elmer V. and Nellie (Kenaston) Vifquain.

A CHRISTIAN OBLIGATION
By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam Three times in Rom. 1:1416, the Apostle Paul uses the phrase “I am,” and each one carries an important message for every true believer in Christ. First he says in Verse 14: “I am debtor” — debtor to all men, to tell them about the saving work of Christ. But why was he indebted to people he had never even seen? For several reasons. First, he had in his hand what they needed to be saved from the penalty and power of sin. If I see a drunkard lying across the railroad track and I do nothing about it, am I not a murderer if he is killed by the train? If I see a man drowning and I have a life buoy in my hand but do not throw it to him, am I not a murderer if he goes down for the last time? If I see millions of lost souls about me and, knowing the message of salvation, do not tell them, am I not guilty if they die without Christ? Further, Paul felt himself a debtor to others, because the Christ who had died for his sins had also died for the sins of others. As he says in II Cor. 5:14,15: “Christ died for all, that they which live should not henceforth live unto themselves but unto Him who died for them and rose again.” Finally, the Christ who had died for Paul’s sins, had commissioned him to tell others of His saving grace. Thus he says in I Cor. 9:16,17: “Woe is unto me if I preach not the gospel! For… a dispensation of the gospel is committed unto me.” Paul could say further what every true believer should be able to say: Not, “I am debtor, but,” but rather, “I am debtor… So, as much as in me is I am ready” (Rom. 1:15). He was ready to discharge his debt because he had that with which to discharge it — the wonderful “gospel of the grace of God.” And he did indeed make this message known to others with all that was in him. And now the third “I am”: “I am debtor… so I am ready… for I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ, for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth… ” (Ver. 16). Paul was always proud to own Christ as the mighty Savior from sin. Do you know Christ as your Savior? Do you tell others about Him?

Pennington County Courant • August 23, 2012 •
Published August 23, 2012, at the total approximate cost of $156.68. council input on property cleanup abatement. Letters have been sent to 4 separate properties, three times and no response or cleanup has occurred with the deadline date having been reached. The council requested a report of estimated time to clean each property before they made a decision. If the city cleans up the properties, the owners would be billed and fees would be added to their taxes if they do not pay. Wally Hoffman, president of the Eastern Pennington County Ambulance District voiced concerns over the proposed lease agreement for the building and equipment about whether there are any repairs needed before they entered into the agreement. Other concerns from the EMTs included how the insurance would be handled as the building was originally set up to share 50/50 with the fire department. Suggestions included keeping the insurance under the city and bill each department accordingly. Actual usage as well as utility usage should be adjusted as the 50/50 may not be applicable anymore. The sewer issues at 215 W Fifth Street have been resolved with the sewer main being relined. There should not be any more issues as no major defects were found. The sewer lagoon project was discussed. Several man holes going over the hill are in very bad condition and the engineer’s suggestion was to include them in the project and do the whole thing at once with the total cost estimate at $770,000. If the city should try to get on the state water plan to get funding, it would require an initial outlay of around $10,000 to generate a facility plan and then the likelihood of receiving funds was questionable. There is currently $225,000 in the sewer reserve and approximately $546,000 in the waste water money market, so funding it is not completely out of the question. The council requested that the engineer be present at the next meeting to give more information. Motion by S Anderson, second by M Anderson to authorize opening bids for the airport snow blower and to approve the previous appointed committee to accept bids. Motion carried. The cost is $200,000 and the city’s portion is 2%. The blower can only be used within the City under extreme emergencies. Budget for 2013CY was discussed. The council accepted the Pennington County Sheriff’s office budget request of $103,600.00. Motion by S Anderson, second by Hustead to approve 1st reading of 12-05, 2013 Budget with the Finance Committee meeting prior to the September meeting to further refine the budget. Motion carried. Motion by S Anderson, second by Hustead to approve 1st reading of ordinance 12-06, amend sign ordinance. Motion carried. Motion by S Anderson, second by Hustead to approve July 9th and 26th city council minutes. Motion carried. Motion by Dunker, second by S Anderson to approve the June Ambulance minutes. Motion carried. Motion by S Anderson, second by M Anderson to approve paying the 2011 budget funds for Wall Health Service that were put in reserves and their 2012 budget funds for a total of $10,000.00. Motion carried. Motion by Dunker, second by M Anderson to approve the remaining August City of Wall bills. Motion carried.
