The South Dakota Report Card
highlighting school performance is
now available online. The Report
Card, based on South Dakota’s
new accountability system, meas-
ures each of the state’s schools on
several key indicators and gives
each school a score out of a total
100 points.
Thirty-four schools earned clas-
sifications of Exemplary, which is
the top rating and includes the top
five percent of schools. Eighteen of
those were Exemplary for a second
year in a row.

Ag Awareness Picnic
a great success
The school season is fast approaching and fall
sports will be starting their practices before the first
bell rings on September 3. Coach Patterson would
like all students who are planning to particpate in
Cross Country to meet in the west lobby of the gym
on August 19th at 7:00 p.m. Be ready to run!
The Rapid City Area Chamber’s Ag and Natural Resources Com-
mittee and the Rypkema family hosted the 17th Annual Ag
Awareness Picnic at Mt. Rushmore Angus (Rypkema Ranch).
This event is hosted annually to foster a better understanding
of the importance of agriculture to western South Dakota. There
were presentations throughout the evening by the South Dakota
Cattlewomen, Black Hills Forest Resource Association and the
Natural Resource Conservation Service. Dr. Amanda Blair spoke
briefly about myths that are often associated with beef produc-
tion and consumption. ~Courtesy Photo

Tim, Beth and Maggie Goldham-
mer, as well as friends and many
members of their families, hosted
an evening reception where the
first three recipients of the
William J. Goldhammer Memorial
Scholarship were honored.
This memorial scholarship is of-
fered in partnership with the
Greater Des Moines Habitat for
Humanity and to qualify for one of
the three - $1,200 scholarships
the applicants must have received
a home through the Greater Des
Moines Habitat for Humanity
chapter or be the child of someone
who received a home and be pur-
suing either a two year or four
year college degree.
The recipients of this year’s
scholarships include Haidar
Kokola, who is attending Iowa
State University; Vivian Chan,
who is attending Iowa State Uni-
versity and Mihad Yahia, who at-
tends Grand View University.
“We were very pleased to award
these educational scholarships to
three very deserving members of
the Habitat for Humanity Commu-
Their desire to be successful,
contributing members of society is
very inspiring to all who have met
them”, said Tim Goldhammer.
This awards dinner was held
during a week where many mem-
bers of Tim and Beth’s families as
well as friends of Will met in Des
Moines to honor Will’s memory by
volunteering with the Greater Des
Moines Habitat for Humanity
Chapter by assisting in building a
new home for another deserving
Tim is the son of Paul Goldham-
mer and the late Sally Goldham-
mer and a 1978 graudate of Wall

“With the new accountability
system, we are providing educa-
tors, parents and policy makers
with a wealth of data,” said Secre-
tary of Education Dr. Melody
“That’s the purpose of this
process: to provide rich data to
schools as they prepare our stu-
dents for the challenges of college
and careers in the 21st century.”
High school completion is one
measure that has been added to
the accountability system. The
new system measures both stu-
dents who complete high school in
four years and students who take
longer to complete or earn a GED.
“We want to recognize schools
that help higher-risk students fin-
ish high school, even if it takes
more than four years. This data
shows that a number of our schools
are succeeding in this area,”
Schopp said.
Lead-Deadwood’s Career & Tech
Ed Campus is one example. The
completion rate for students at the
school was 80 percent, “which is no
small feat,” Schopp said.
Student achievement, as meas-
ured by the Dakota STEP test, is
another key data point. Proficiency
rates on the state assessment have
remained steadily in the mid-70s
for several years, and that contin-
ued this year.
Across the state, 74 percent of
students scored at the proficient or
advanced levels in math.
In reading, 74 percent of stu-
dents also scored at the proficient
or advanced levels.
This year, the state is moving to
new standards in English and
math, and a new assessment will
follow. Schopp cautions people not
to compare the old and new assess-
ments. “Proficiency levels will look
very different when we have a new
assessment in place.
We are moving to more rigorous
standards and to a more complex
assessment. The new proficiency
rates won’t be comparable to those
we’re used to, but we need to stay
the course for the long-term bene-
fit of our students.”

In 1924, John Hoffman, Herman
Meyer and Bruce Barnes sat in the
garage and planned the first pic-
The picnic was held on Saturday,
July 26, 1924 in the Lakeside
church. There was a picnic dinner,
free lemonade and coffee.
Reverend. Carrol D. Erskine of
Sturgis, S.D. gave an address and
also helped with the planning of
this picnic.
There was a baseball game be-
tween Chalk Butte and Lakeside.
A short business meeting was held
and those present decided to make
this an annual affair.
Officers were elected as follows:
President John Hoffman, Secre-
tary/Treasurer C.D. Long and
three trustees - Mrs. A.B. Nelson;
Mr. H. Reeves and Mr. A.E. Barber.
Those picnics were held at the
Lakeside schoolhouse for several
years and at the ball diamond in
the pasture northwest of the club-
In 1931-1932 it was held on Elk
Creek near the Byron Skinner
The Sunshine Club built the
clubhouse in the fall of 1932 and
after that the picnics have been
held there.
For many years there was al-
ways a speaker, some of which
were C.D. Erskine, Senator Peter
Norbeck, D.D. Collins, A.W.
Wattwood, Judge Nystrum, Tom
Berry, Rev. Locke, Reb. Walton,
Francis Case, Dr. Seman, John
Milch, R.P. Harmond, Olive Rins-
grud, Badger Clark and Warren
The Sturgis band, New Under-
wood band, Owanka band played
at various picnics. Also some local
talent was displayed by giving
readings and singing. One year
there was a parade in the morning.
For several years floors were
laid and bowery dances were held.
Later years the dances were held
in the clubhouse in the evenings.
In 1953, the ball games were
given up and horse races have
been held through the following
years. Games are played and foot
races of various kinds are held.
Also, in 1953, the Sunshine club
gave the clubhouse to the Old Set-
tler’s Assn.
At the first picnic there were
concession stands and on the 25th
anniversary a small carnival was
held on the clubhouse grounds.
During the winter months a
group of the old settlers get to-
gether for card playing once a
The money taken in at these af-
fairs helps to keep up clubhouse
which is also used for other com-
munity gatherings.
On Saturday, August 27 the
90th Old Settlers’ Picnic will be
held at the Lakeside Clubhouse.
Horseshoe contest will begin at
9:00 a.m., followed by a potluck
picnic at noon with games and
races to follow.
A silent auction, wagon rides
and a quilt raffle will also be held.
An evening meal will be avail-
able and “The Good Ole Boy’s will
play for a dance.
Lakeside community to hold
90th Old Settlers’ Picnic
By Rev. Curtis Garland
A benefit motorcycle ride will
take place Monday, August 19th,
with the proceeds going to pur-
chase a lift van for the Zoe Jones
The ride is being organized by
regional pastors, Rev. David
Schwan of Zion Lutheran Church
in Rapid City, Rev. Randy Sturzen-
becher of Divine Shepherd
Lutheran Church in Black Hawk,
and Rev. Curtis Garland of First
Evangelical Lutheran and Em-
manuel Lutheran Churches in
Wall and Creighton.
The ride will meet the criteria
for a Saddle Sore 1000 as sanc-
tioned by the Iron Butt Associa-
tion, a long distance riding
organization (at
www.ironbutt.com). It will cover
over 1,000 miles in 24 hours.
In February 2009, the pastor of
Bethlehem Lutheran Church in
Rapid City and his wife (Josh and
Jamie Jones) were blessed with
the birth of their daughter Zoe.
Zoe joined an older brother,
Noah, in the family. Zoe was born
extremely prematurely. She
weighed a mere 1 pound 13
ounces. She spent 100 days in the
NICU in Rapid City. The day after
bringing her home, Zoe was diag-
nosed with moderately severe
hearing loss. After many chal-
lenges over her first year of life,
Zoe was diagnosed in 2010 with a
severe form of cerebral palsy that
is next to impossible to treat.
Since then she has seen dozens
of doctors and gone through much
more than any four-year old
Zoe has problems with her mus-
cle tone. She can't sit, crawl, walk,
roll over, stand, play, or hold things
without help.
She has an extraordinary
amount of involuntary movements
that make it very difficult, and
even unsafe, to hold her and espe-
cially transfer her (e.g. from the
bathtub to the bed, from the bed to
her toileting chair, etc.)
Lately, it has been taking two
Benefit motorcycle ride for
region pastor’s daughter
people to get her strapped into her
wheelchair or other adaptive
equipment safely. As she has con-
tinued to grow, getting into a vehi-
cle has become a safety issue.
Thus, in addition to the many
needs her family has right now, a
handicapped accessible van is nec-
essary for safe transportation.
Zoe is exceptionally intelligent.
She is a quick learner and loves
movies and singing - she especially
loves Monsters Inc. and Wall-e.
And her smile is one of the most
beautiful you'll ever see.
The cost of a handicap-equipped
van is quite high – more akin to
buying a house than a car.
Of course, this is particularly
daunting for anyone in the face of
medical costs for a child chal-
lenged as Zoe is and the everyday
costs of supporting a family.
This event is a wonderful oppor-
tunity to demonstrate and live out
a tangible way life together as the
west river community comes to-
gether as Christian brothers and
You may participate in this
event in a couple of ways. First,
you may join the ride and help
raise money. You can register by
going to the Zion Lutheran Church
website (www.zionrc.org) to fill out
the ride registration and pledge
The ride itself is limited to 12
riders, and there are some other
requirements listed on the site.
Second, you may donate by mak-
ing a pledge.
Your donation may be per mile,
per hour, or per trip of Zoe's Ride.
You may do that on the web site as
well, by clicking on the Zoe's Ride
link in the left column of the home
You may also make a pledge by
contacting anyone riding in the
event. For those in the eastern
Pennington County area, you may

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by
Lloyd & Margee Willey
We had rain here in Wasta, Fri-
day night and early Saturday
morning. Mary Lewis got a rain
gauge reading of 3/4 inch. We’ll
take it, gratefully so.
Marilyn Keyser reported on the:
(1) Intelligence to squirrels and (2)
Entertainment value of said ro-
It seems Marilyn carefully
planned where and how high to
put her bird feeder to “KEEP
OUT” all but birds. In watching
the general antics of birds and
squirrels recently she noticed a
squirrel on the ground looking to
be sizing up the situation and sud-
denly he jumped straight up,
grabbed the two small pegs at the
base of the feeder, gaining enough
momentum to cause seeds to fall to
the ground at which time the fuzzy
tailed rascal released his hold and
landed in the middle of his hard
earned meal and proceeded to
enjoy his feast!
We didn’t ask Marilyn if he in-
vited his friends, but we did notice
the bottom of the feeder is about
five feet above ground!
Faye Bryan noticed the wind
socks flying from most of the
homes in the “neck of Wasta” and
that people in this end will not
only know that the wind is blow-
ing, but they will know which way
the wind is blowing! Perhaps we
could have a fund raiser to provide
all Wasta residents with a wind
sock and compare which days it
blows from the south on the east
side and from the west on the
south. Oh, good silliness, but en-
Football season is close! Practice
has begun for Dayton Skillingstad
and Kaylen Spotted Bear. Both are
in the Wall Pee Wee League, but
both are very serious about their
football. Last year both boys were
on a championship team that went
on to the league Super Bowl in
Rapid City.
Raiden Crawford also played on
a championship little League team
last year — how about this year,
Efforts from the people in Wasta
are combining to ensure a success-
ful Relay For Life Team and subse-
quent dollar amount turned in to
the American Cancer Society.
While I understand all they do has
importance, research has top pri-
ority for me. Not just for a cure,
but improved diagnostic methods
and then treatments.
Well, you all know what the
Wasta Wildcats are busy doing —
we have littered your door step
and crowded your mailbox with in-
vitations to “doings’ and requests
for help. And to all of you who have
responded with time, dollars, labor
and encouragement — We Thank
You — All you Wasta Wildcats and
friends like:
Larry and Peggy Gravatt who
are volunteering their time and ex-
pertise for our Bingo and ice cream
social night. “Larry is the name,
Bingo is the game, and this here
pretty lady is Peggy” — reads the
card Larry carries. Just joking! We
appreciate you so much and from
experience we know you make the
game more fun.
Wasta seems to be having a
bumper crop of chokecherries this
year — even more than the birds
can eat. Barb Crawford and assis-
tant Jerry Schell were invited to
pick all they wanted around our
place and Barb said the Carter
guys came with more buckets full.
Barb makes a killer chokecherry
syrup which goes great on pan-
cakes and even better on ice
cream. Maybe there will be a small
jar on the table at Bingo and Ice
Cream Social! Was that a hint or
Carrie Kjerstad found
chokecherries covering a shrub in
Faye’s yar so she picked to her
heart’s content.
We still have some nice ready
and ripes one by our back door and
the last time I checked there were
a lot of plums still ripening on the
east side. They are so tasty, but
usually the birds have them either
picked or pecked in just a few days
after they’re soft. I don’t make jelly
or syrup so anyone may have the
Ash and Madi Grenstiner have
volunteered to bake cookies for
“Lunch in the Park” this Wednes-
day. We’re hoping for some trail
weary travelers to stop by for a
sloppy joe or two.
Justin Crawford is a Wildcat.
May be he know the school song.
There must be someone out
there who can at least put a cheer
The best I could do: We are the
Wildcats and given half a chance
We’ll be mighty victors
biting cancer in the pants.
Now anybody can do better than
that! Even Lloyd tought it was
Happy Trails!

Gathered by Frances Poste
August 2nd and 3rd, the Sebade
cousins gathered at the Outpost
Lodge in Pierre. The Outpost is
owned by Les and Marilyn (John-
son) Wulf. It was a wonderful two
days of reminiscing, golfing, boat-
ing, and water skiing and of course
great food. They were entertained
with music from Brady and Ryan
Gunn (son's of Rod and Gloria
Gunn) their band called “Our
Drunk Uncle”. An estimated 101
relatives attended. The next re-
union is planned for the first week-
end in August 2015 at the Outpost.
Steve Eisenbraun’s cousin, Mar-
vin Schweigert of Eagle River,
Alaska and Myron’s friend, Rosie
Courtney of Santa Ana, Calif., vis-
ited in the Eisenbraun home last
Tuesday, Thursday and Friday.
Steve Eisenbraun drove to Nor-
folk, Neb., last Wednesday, to help
Tyler and Wendi Eisenbraun,
Axton and Alyvia move into their
new home. He returned Sunday.
Two people will share the honor
of having their art projects dis-
played at the First Interstate
Bank this month. Hannah
Huether will show the first two
weeks of the month — as she is re-
turning to college at that time she
does not wish to leave it longer.
Jereanne Hanks will display her
art work the last part of August.
We’ll be looking forward to seeing
all of the work of the members of
the Wall Art Guild.
Congratulations go out to Eric
and Natalie Hansen and family for
being selected as recipients of the
“Most Beautiful Yard 2013 Award”
given by the Wall Beautification
The Sebade cousins had a re-
union near Pierre this past week-
end. Rosalind from Denver and
Marsha Lytle of Reva, came on
Thursday and stayed in Wall that
night. Edith Paulsen joined them
for pizza and they played some
cards. The next morning Norbert
and Jane Sebade came and more
card games took place until they
left for Pierre.
An article in the Pioneer Review
last week was interesting. Con-
gratulations go out to Jennifer
Emery and Kelly Green of Wall
High School for being selected to
be “interns” at the Badlands Na-
tional Park this summer. this pro-
gram has been in effect for several
summers with Nathan Wooden
Knife, Philip High School, as vol-
unteer for the last four years. The
2013 program has grown to six
student participants. Besides the
three mentioned, there are two
from Crazy Horse school and
Joseph One Skunk from Philip
High School.
Gerald and Esther Wolford cele-
brated their 47th anniversary,
July 31st, by taking a drive
through the Black Hills with lunch
in Hill City. We offer our congratu-
lations to them.
Haley Jedlicka of Rapid City,
spent overnight on July 30th at
her grandmother Donna’s home.
Gale Patterson filled in for Pas-
tor Darwin Kopfmann on Sunday
at the Methodist Church.
It is motorcycle rally time in
Sturgis — although it just started
on Monday, August 5th, there have
been a lot of motorcyclists in Wall,
off and on, prior to that. Drive
“Theme” meal at Prairie Village
is scheduled for Tuesday, August
13th. Meatballs are on the menu
along with mashed potatoes and
gravy, peas, coleslaw and pineap-
ple upside down cake. Potluck sup-
per is two days later on August
15th. See you there!
Our temperatures continue to be
below average. The few showers
that have come are always wel-
come. Monday night, or early Tues-
day morning, we had quite a
lightning storm. Too bad we can’t
harness it for our use. It gave us a
great rain.

Well, news must be in short sup-

one called me with any.
We did want to remind people
about the benefit for Celine Trask
on Saturday night.
This will be a night of fellow-

Saturday, August 10th. The com-
munity and surrounding areas will
come together at the Elm Springs
Hall for a night to celebrate Celine
Trask and all of her tremendous
accomplishments since her acci-
dent last December. She has made
great strides, but still has a way to
go in her recovery. Come help her
and her family celebrate her tri-
umphs with a free will supper
starting at 5:00 p.m. followed by a

Attitude is everything in my
world. I sincerely want to have the
proper attitude towards everything
in life. Consistently having the right
attitude is not always easy for me-
even if I am "Mr. Attitude." I don't
believe I am alone here. I have ob-
served that having the right atti-
tude, especially in the midst of
stresses and pressures, can be diffi-
cult for all of us. Yet seldom is it eas-
ier to be grumpy and pouting,
whining and complaining, taking
the road that is most often traveled,
which is not necessarily the high
I realize that when other people
leave work undone or things out of
place or frustrate you in some way
or another, it is quite easy to get
upset and start ranting and raving.
But is that really the answer? Does
that really solve the challenge? I am
not saying that you should ignore
the challenge. What I am saying is
that how you respond to the little
things will certainly define how you
handle the bigger things in life. You
don't usually have control over situ-
ations and circumstances brought
about by others, but you can choose
to remain calm, cool and collected
when things don't go your way. You
can choose not to lose your head
even when others are losing theirs.
I like to refer to this as having
"grace under fire."
Let me confirm that having the
proper attitude-this grace under
fire-is simply treating others with
courteous goodwill even when they
are not treating us right. This is
something I am committed to work-
ing on every single day from the mo-
ment that I wake up and start
connecting with other people be-
cause I believe it's the right thing to
How about you? Are you working
on your attitude everyday from the
moment that you wake up? Remem-
ber that today is a new day and you
can start fresh. Do not let anything
get in the way of spoiling your day.
Complete the work you must do.
Focus on what is right and good.
Overcome the challenges in such a
manner that other people will be
amazed and dazzled. And when
challenges come your way, before re-
acting in frustration, determine how
you can best respond to the chal-
lenge or issue with an attitude of
Plan your strategy to implement
grace into the situation; process it
again to make sure you are thinking
correctly; then move forward con-
veying your thoughts, ideas, com-
ments and suggestions in order to
help set the tone for those who are
obviously needing a bit of an atti-
tude adjustment. Remember react-
ing with kindness and grace-even
when you are under fire-will impact
your relationships in a most positive

Dr. Dobson Answers
your Questions
QuESTION: How can we assess
whether or not our child is ready for
school? Can you suggest any basic
ANSWER: This question has be-
come more significant than ever
over the past several years. This is
due in large part to external factors
that have relatively little to do with
you or your child. It’s primarily an
issue of public policy. Government is
demanding that schools meet higher
standards than ever before. As a re-
sult, beginning kindergarten stu-
dents are now often expected to
learn material that used to be
taught in the first grade. You may or
may not be able to do anything
about this, but it helps to be aware
of it.
How do we define school readi-
ness? Generally speaking, this term
refers to the emotional, behavioral,
and cognitive skills a child needs in
order to learn, work, and function
successfully in school. It’s a question
of being prepared to make the tran-
sition from home and family to a so-
cial environment where education is
the primary emphasis.
In our experience, parents don’t
usually raise questions about school
readiness unless they have specific
concerns about their child’s behav-
ior or level of maturity. If you fall
into this category, our initial sugges-
tion would be to hold off on school-
ing until the problem can be
resolved. You can always home-
school for a year or two until you
feel more confident about your
child’s ability to launch out into the
larger world.
Notice that we’ve called this an
“initial suggestion.” It’s anything
but the final word on the subject.
School readiness is a complicated
issue. Without more detailed infor-
mation we can’t provide a definitive
answer to your question. Nor are we
in a position to tell you exactly how
you ought to proceed. Every child is
unique. Every situation needs to be
evaluated in light of its own special
features and circumstances. Since
you know your child better than
anyone else, you are the best person
to determine whether and when he’s
ready to take on the challenge of for-
mal schooling. Here’s a basic check-
list of questions you can ask as you
try to make that assessment:
•Is your child enthusiastic about
starting school? Is he eager to learn?
•Does he demonstrate a desire to
be independent? Can he dress him-
self, tie his own shoes, use the bath-
room on his own, and work
independently with supervision?
•Does he have the basic language
skills he’ll need to succeed in school?
Does he speak in full sentences?
Can he understand and follow sim-
ple instructions? Is he able to iden-
tify sound units in words and
recognize rhyme?
•What about basic academic
knowledge? Does he know his num-
bers and his ABCs? Can he identify
primary colors and basic shapes?
Can he write his own name and re-
cite his own personal information?
If not, could he be taught to do so?
•Has he mastered simple motor
skills, such as throwing a ball, skip-
ping, or climbing (gross), or working
with puzzles, scissors, and paints
•Is he capable of controlling his
behavior and demonstrating accept-
able social skills? Can he play and
work with others, follow rules, and
sit still for up to 30 minutes at a
It’s crucial to add that the concept
of “school readiness” is a two-way
street. It applies to schools as well
as to kids. In our view, it’s unfair to
place the entire burden on the
shoulders of the children. Teachers
and administrators also have re-
sponsibilities. They have to prepare
themselves to teach kids at their
own level. They need to figure out
ways to meet each child’s individual
needs. Teaching is not about stamp-
ing students out of a predetermined
mold designed to fit a prescribed set
of skills and abilities. Any truly
helpful assessment of school readi-
ness has to take into account the
uniqueness of each child’s early life
experiences. School expectations
need to be respectful of those indi-
vidual differences. They should also
place an appropriate amount of em-
phasis on the role of the family and
the community in preparing kids for
the challenges that lie ahead.
To put it another way, “school
readiness” isn’t simply a matter of
formal academic training. All of a
child’s early experiences, whether at
home, in child care, or in organized
preschool settings, are educational.
If you have doubts or questions
about your child’s readiness for for-
mal schooling, there are a number
of things you can do at home to op-
timize his chances of succeeding in
the academic arena. Here are a few
•Read books aloud with your
child. Get him used to handling
books and help him recognize the
difference between pictures and
•Engage in informal counting ac-
tivities. This will strengthen your
child’s understanding of numbers.
Familiarize him with the alphabet.
•Develop reading readiness by
promoting your child’s phonological
awareness. You can do this by read-
ing nursery rhymes, singing and
clapping along with songs, and play-
ing games with rhyming words.
•Spend time talking, playing, and
cuddling with your child. Take steps
to stimulate informal conversation.
Give him opportunities to ask lots of
questions. Encourage play that pro-
motes creativity, imagination, and
problem-solving skills.
•If your child has trouble sitting
still, practice having him concen-
trate on a task for a short period of
time (ten minutes). Over several
months, increase that time until he
can remain focused for 30 minutes
or so.
•Create and maintain a regular
routine in your home. Emphasize
mealtimes, naptimes, bedtime, etc.
Help your child to become comfort-
able with this rhythm.
•Encourage behaviors and activi-
ties that develop a sense of respon-
sibility in your child (e.g., simple
chores) and that demonstrate re-
spect and courtesy.
•Look for opportunities to de-
velop your child’s social skills
through playgroups or more formal
preschool activities.

best to make the most of what is
left! Enjoy a summer evening by
reading a book in your hammock
or relax on your patio with a glass
of iced tea and a cool summer read.
We have received several new
shipments of novels in the last few
weeks, so come on in to check out
some of the newest and most pop-
ular titles on the market! Also, the
reading program is for all ages,
and will be happening until Au-

This summer the Wall Library
joined a large print book circuit
through the South Dakota State
This means that every two
Spud Creek Rodeo Productions,
Dave and Nate Morrison from In-
terior, S.D., will be bringing the
Red Dirt & Roughstock Tour to
Kadoka, S.D., on Friday, August
16th at 7:00 p.m. featuring a high
paced Roughstock Rodeo of Bare-
back Riding, Saddle Bronc Riding,
and Bull Riding.
This will be in place of the Bad-
lands Match Bronc Riding that
Spud Creek Rodeo has produced
the previous years on the same
weekend in Kadoka.
As Nate Morrison with the Red
Dirt & Roughstock tour explains
it, “South Dakota is very educated
when it comes to rodeo events and
they know a good event when they
see one, and also know a bad,
poorly run event, when they see
one. They can tell the difference
between good stock and bad stock,
good rides and bad rides, and ac-
cording to the South Dakota Rodeo
Fan... they are wanting something
fresh and new without all the fluff.
Straight up action where the
bucking stock and rides do the
talking so to speak. We believe we
have found the answer to that call.
Limiting the event to only 10
Bareback Riders, 10 Bronc Riders,
and 10 Bull Riders with the top
five from the event advancing to a
Championship Round, we can
present the crowd a high paced,
non-stop action night with 45 rides
total that can be done within two
hours without losing the crowds
excitement and attention.
By also limiting to 10/event, I
can assure that the stock and rid-
ers can be of the highest quality
making the fan going home excited
about the event.”
On top of the Roughstock Rodeo
Action, the Red Dirt & Roughstock
Tour is featuring a demonstration
of Rodney Yost's Horsemanship
starting before the show at 6:30
Rodney's demonstration will fea-
ture "Pepsi" doing some advanced
drills and maneuvers leading into
her great bareback/bridleless/bull-
whip ride as the finale.
He will be talking his way
through the demonstration giving
an explanation of his techniques,
philosophy, and training style.
So it won't simply be entertain-
ment, and it won't simply be an ed-
ucational demonstration... It will
be the perfect combination of both.
Immediately following the high
paced roughstock rodeo action, the
Red Dirt & Roughstock Tour will
be introducing "The Bad River
Band" playing Red Dirt & Rodeo
Tunes at the after party at Club 27
in Kadoka.
Based out of Philip, S.D., Kenny
Feidler is a lyrical genius when it
comes to capturing the feel of life
on the rodeo road, and along with
Clade Schuelke a genius on a gui-
tar, combined with Travis Michel-
son on Bass, and Nicole Kluck on
rhythm guitar, they have put to-
gether "The Bad River Band" win-
ners of the Texaco Country
Showdown in Lemmon, S.D. in
July. Kenny will also
be competing in the bareback rid-
ing during the event, which is
what Red Dirt & Roughstock is all
about. Roughstock Rodeo action
without all the "fluff", and straight
up country music without all the
"pop". Bring your dancing boots...
it's going to be RANK!
Also included in the night of
non-stop roughstock action will be
local trick riding sensation Christy
Willert from Kadoka, performing
her high paced Trick Riding Skills,
and funny man “Stretch” McKown
will be on hand guaranteeing
laughs that the whole family will
Kadoka’s event will be the third
stop on the 2013 Red Dirt &
Roughstock Tour as the contest-
ants are trying to earn their way
to the big finale event in Rapid
City, S.D. on September 27th fea-
turing the famous Red Dirt Band,
Jason Boland and The Stragglers.
Tour standings and more infor-
mation can be found online at
Opening starts at 6:30 p.m. with
the rodeo action kicking off at 7:00

Rapid City Journal: Sheriff Al
Schovel and Deputy Irwin A. Lins
left this morning (Saturday) for
Wasta in response to an unusual
call. Details of the situation were
meager, but from what they could
gleam from the call, they expected
to find a “man sitting in the
Cheyenne River with a jug of
whiskey and rifle and daring the
law to come and get him”. Officers
decided that some one was “on the
loose” in the brakes along the
Cheyenne, and went down to in-
vestigate. Later reports coming to
the Courant office stated that the
man was wanted on an assault
charge in Custer County. He was
captured after the officers arrived
on the scene and is now in the
county jail at Custer.
Last Wednesday evening about
ten o’clock a prairie fire was
started about 17 miles south east
of Quinn. Several cars of Quinn
people drove to the scene and as-
sisted in putting it out. Quite a
large area was burned over, includ-
ing a couple of wheat fields. Fortu-
nately no building stood in the
burned area. The cause of the fire
was not learned.
The state legislature met in spe-
cial session Monday for the pur-
pose of legalizing 3.2 beer. The
income tax law repeal or revision,
however, seems to be holding the
center of the stage.

folks enjoyed the day visiting with
one another, while Mrs. Joe Cham-

Airport, Thursday afternoon. A
Courant reporter went out to pick
up the news as to what happened.
He was met by a young man wear-
ing a Security Patch on his shoul-
der who refused to give out any
information, not even the name of
the owner of the plane or pilot. In
fact the reporter was ordered to
“move on”.

The Parish Council of the
Church of Saint Patrick, by unani-
mous vote, decided Monday night
to accept the base price offered by
Estes Brothers, Inc., of Wall for a
new church building. Removal of
the present church will begin next
Monday and construction is ex-
pected to begin by mid-August.
Stone’s Construction and Ditching
has the site preparation contract.
Richard Pearson and Marshall
Mickley are the architects; Phil
Nichols, the engineering consult-
ant on lighting and mechanical
and Wallace Desheimer, the struc-
tural engineer.
The semi-annual financial re-
port of the City of Wall is being
published in this week’s paper. It
shows that the city is in pretty
good shape financially. Several
projects are being planned for
much needed improvements
within the city. Work has already
been started on an extensive street
improvement project to be com-
pleted hopefully, within the next
two years. Another project under-
way is the sanitary land fill at the
dump ground. As it stands now, the
city will NOT be required to ban
open burning. This means you can
burn papers and wood in residen-
tial areas before 5 p.m. A state-
wide ban on burning will come in
between Johnson and Dale Chris-
tiansen, Johnson says he will con-
tinue the same services — buying
and selling of wheat, portable pel-
let service, fertilizer, feed and
chemical. The only changes he
foresees are that he “would like to
put more emphasis on fertilizer”
and the name will be changed to
Rancher’s Supply, Inc.

A decision was reached on the lo-
cation of the proposed transfer sta-
tion during a special meeting of the
Wall City Council the night of July
20. The unanimous (5-0) decision
was made to locate the transfer
station at the Badlands site, lo-
cated east of Wall, west of the la-
goons. A transfer station collects
solid waste (garbage) from the
garbage routes into one collection
point. The solid waste is unloaded
into a transfer trailer where it is
held until the trailer has a full
load. Construction of the transfer
station is tentatively estimated at
$250,000 and a tractor/transfer
trailer at $75,000.
Two visitors from Ohio were
fined $500 each by U.S. Magistrate
Thomas Parker for killing wildlife
in Badlands National Park. Based
on a tip from a U.S. Forest Service
employee, Rangers Harvey and Se-
merau contacted David Shoemaker
and Fred Zimmer who admitted
shooting at prairie dogs. The area
in question was searched and sev-
eral freshly shot prairie dogs were
found. Shoemaker and Zimmer
were charged and ordered to ap-
pear in Magistrate court. Harvey
and Semerau initially confiscated
the weapons used in the shooting,
but these were later returned.
In just a few short months the
vistas of Western South Dakota
will be forever changed as the U.S.
Air Force proceeds with plans to
demolish 150 Minuteman II mis-
sile sites. With the passing of the
missile sites, only one will possibly
remain, Delta I site, located 17
miles east of Wall. One missile silo
will also possibly remain, Delta 9,
located six miles southeast of Wall.
A plan to retain the two sites and
turn them over to the National
Park Service is working the way
through channels, under the
Legacy Program. The Legacy Pro-
gram is designed to preserve some
items which played a prominent
role during the Cold War period.
