Deadlines.
Application deadline is Friday,
March 15.
Golden West General Manager
Denny Law said the company sees
the scholarship program as a way
to strengthen and build South
Dakota’s rural communities.
“At Golden West, we understand
how important it is to invest in
today's latest technologies, but
also the importance of investing in
tomorrow's leaders,” Law said.
“We recognize that the graduating
seniors of today may be the com-
munity leaders of tomorrow who
will help create greater opportu-
nity for everyone.”
Committees overseen by each
school’s Superintended and/or
principal will select local scholar-
ship winners, while a committee of
Golden West employees will select
the at-large recipient.
Golden West Scholarship recipi-
ents will be chosen based on SAT
or ACT scores, high school tran-
scripts and scholarship applica-
tions.
In addition, the committees will
consider leadership in school, civic
and other extracurricular activi-
ties, personal character and the
applicant’s motivation to serve and
succeed.
The student’s parent(s) or legal
guardian(s) must reside within one
of the Golden West telephone serv-
ice areas and subscribe to a Golden
West service (phone, internet or
cablevision).
When two applicants are ex-
tremely close in qualifications, fi-
nancial need will serve as a
tiebreaker.
The 2013 Golden West Scholar-
ship program marks the 14th year
the Golden West Telecommunica-
tions Board of Directors has
funded the program.

Eastern Pennington County
Board member Carolynn Anderson
informed the ambulance board the
lease will need to be completed by
December. The tax levy for the dis-
trict will have to be submitted to
the county by September 1st.
Board member Jem Kjerstad
said, “We will have to go with the
maximum amount so we can build
up a reserve to start replacing
equipment.” He went on to say,
“We will have to take the heat and
let the public determine through
election how the chips will fall.”
Kjerstad was shocked at seeing
what a tough job this is going to
be. The board agreed that the
tax levy will have to be set at the
full amount in order to get a base
set, which usually takes two years.

tion to set the capital outlay and
general fund at the maximum tax
levy.

ton Rodeos Inc. out of Justin Boots
Chuckulator top NFR saddle bronc
and Midnight Star, was voted the
top saddle bronc horse at the De-
cember 6-15 Wrangler National Fi-

It marked the first time in eight
years that a saddle bronc horse

Stock award, presented by Pendle-

NFR honor in the same year and
just the seventh time in the 54-
year history of the NFR.
Kesler Championship Rodeo’s
Cool Alley Dip was the last saddle
bronc horse to sweep both awards
in 2004, the year that Billy Et-
bauer equaled the NFR record of
93 points he had set on Cool Alley
Dip the year before. There was no
such record breaking with Chuck-
ulator. He bucked off Cody Taton
in the fifth round and Bradley
Harter in the ninth to get the vot-
ers’ attention.
The other Wrangler NFR Top
Stock Awards went to Frontier
Rodeo’s Full Baggage in the bare-
back riding – the second such
award in three years – and to Pow-
der River Rodeo’s Shepherd Hills

West River’s Philip Area
wrestlers headed east and brought
home first place honors from East
River’s McCook Central/Montrose
Invitational Wrestling Tourna-
ment December 29.
Matt Donnelly, Philip Area head
coach, said it was a team effort
that brought home the win. Philip
did not have wrestlers in the 120
and 132 weight divisisons, but the
others did very well and made up
for the spots.
The Philip Area grapplers’
schedule is full of tough tourna-
ments, always a challenge ahead
of them. Dan Swartos, McCook
Central, wrote on Dakota Grap-
pler, “... Lots of great wrestling
today. Very impressed by Philip,
Burke/Gregory, and Bon Homme.
All tough, hard nosed teams...”
Points were Philip (197.5),
Burke/Gregory (184), Bon Homme
(181.5), McCook Central/Montrose
(168), Flandreau (166.5), Beresford
(165), Elk Point/ Jeffereson (118),
Kingsbury County (100), Lyman
First place honors for wrestling team
and Parker tied (77.5), Dakota Val-
ley (72), Alcester-Hudson (49),
Scotland (41.50), Kimball/White
Lake-Platte-Geddes (37), Marion/
Freeman (26), Mt. Vernon/Plank-
inton/Corsica (25) and Wessington
Springs/Woon-socket/ Wolsey-
Wessington (21). Some of the
schools had unattached wrestlers
in the tournament.

The Badlands Brawlers, a team
nickname that is very fitting, will
head to Presho for the Lyman Mid-
Dakota Monster Tourney, January
4 and 5. “All the schools that will
be there have quality wrestlers
who will give us a good competi-
tion,” said Donnelly.

quarter lead.
The Eagles continued to domi-
nate in the second quarter as they
extended their lead to 47-18 by
halftime.
The Eagles pulled off the press
in the third quarter, but they were
still able to build their lead to a 71-
36 advantage.
The bench came in and played
the entire fourth quarter and they
were able to secure the win for the
Eagles 87-50.

Elm Springs News
Submitted by Peggy Gravatt
Happy New Year to you all!
Because of the early deadlines
for the paper, which I missed, we
are now going to try to catch up
with everyone. Unfortunately, I
haven’t had a lot of responses for
the news, so will give you what I
have.
I’m sure that most of you know
that Celine Trask was moved to
the Craig Hospital in Denver for
rehab this past week. All reports
are good and I know that Celine
will be working very hard to get
back home. She has a wonderful
support team in her family and
friends and more determination
would be hard to find. We will all
continue to keep her in our
thoughts and prayers. You can fol-
low Celine’s progress on the Car-
ing Bridge.
Also, we hear that Karen Del-
bridge has been able to go home.
I’m sure she and Harold are both
very happy about that. We wish
her continued healing.
Congratulations go out to Al and
Bridget Trask on the birth of their
daughter, Felicity who was born on
December 28th. She weighed in at
close to 9 pounds! She joins big
brothers Patrick and Joseph and
sister, Veronica.
Charlotte Wilsey and family,
Andy and Morris Linn and their
families along with Charlie and
Carol Linn of Rapid City were
Christmas Day guests at the John
and Jean Linn home. John and
Jean Linn went to the double-
header basketball game in Wall
this past Saturday afternoon and
evening to cheer on grandkids Ben
and Emily.
Mel and Dorothy Anderson want
to take the opportunity to say how
much they enjoyed both the Elm
Springs church and school pro-
grams that the kids put on. It is
something we all look forward to.
They want to thank Mrs. Michel-
son for the wonderful job she does
with the kids and Kellie Linn and
Cary Johnston for the great video
they put together with the kids for
the church program. The school
kids, accompanied by Kellie Linn
and Chrissy Elshere made the
rounds singing Christmas carols.
Mel and Dorothy had quite a few
guests over the Christmas holiday.
They are as follows: Audey Ander-
son from Sturgis, Taylor Anderson
of Williston, Margaret Nachtigall,
Bunny Bail and girls Mazee, Mat-
tee and Emilee, Mike Karrels,
Fred, Jane and Charles Karp,
Jesse and Heather Sporrer of
Williston, Shelia and Tomilyn
Trask, KayCee and Brett Geck of
Ekalaka, MT, Lisa Deering, Ben
Craft, Jake Wilson and Sterling
Brown, both of Miles City. Since
New Year’s they were visited by
Jan Nachtigall and Chance and
Merretta Anderson from Isabel.
She hopes that she didn’t leave
anyone out!
Peggy and Larry Gravatt spent
Christmas Day at daughter Coral
and husband Brett Erickon’s house
in Rapid City along with daughter
Amber and kids from Colo. and son
Brad Bookbinder and Jes Harstad
of Rapid. They brought grand-
daughter Abby home with them
that night, then the next day
Amber came out with grandkids
Grant, Madi and Steele. Brett,
Coral and Sarah also came out
that day, stayed for supper then
went back to Rapid. The others
stayed over and had fun with
grandma and grandpa. There were
quite a few projects going on in the
shop with grandpa and crafts in
the house with grandma. They all
left on Thursday. On Sunday
Peggy and Larry went to Rapid
and picked up granddaughter
Sarah to come out and spend a few
days taking her back to Rapid on
Tuesday and afterwards going to a
movie. Peggy had appointments in
Wall this past Thursday and had
lunch with sister-in-law Cherry
Denke. On Saturday, granddaugh-
ter Madi came out with her Uncle
Bob Staley and his little boy
George from Pierre. They were
calling coyotes and had some luck.
The big news for us is that our son
Brad Bookbinder and Jes Harstad
became engaged on New Year’s
Day! We are so happy to “officially”
welcome her into the family.
Freddie Ferguson’s news is
being reported as closely as I can
remember him telling me. I will
leave it up to you the readers to
make your own interpretation of
his New Year’s activities. Freddie
reports that this experience was a
new one and was very relaxing and
enjoyable. The evening of Decem-
ber 31st started by going to bed
early and remaining there until
late morning on January 1st.
Being relaxed and not rushed, he
was able to play part of the day
with his furry friends, King and
Tom. Next, it was Sparky’s (his
horse) turn to get spoiled with a
few extra treats. Fred’s report was
given with great enthusiasm and
he is thinking 2013 will be a great
year!
Melissa Burke spent Christmas
out at her dad’s, Lawrence Burke.
They day before new Year’s Eve
Melissa’s pick-up broke down on I-
90, so it was Lawrence to the res-
cue! Lawrence said he spent a
quiet New Year’s Eve. Edgar Sim-
mons was a visitor one Saturday
and they had a nice visit. Clyde Ar-
neson was a coffee visitor several
times over the holidays as well.
I’m sure there were a lot of other
events taking place, but haven’t
gotten any reports, so this will
have to do. We are all still hoping
and praying for some moisture,
but better be careful what we wish
for! We don’t need any major
storms right now. Those will prob-
ably wait until calving starts.
Hope you all have a happy and
healthy 2013.

Bernard Foster came home on
December 24th after a vacation of
over a month. He left home on No-

Hadley Bryan took a trip over
Christmas to visit Holly’s family in
Spiro, Oklahoma. They were gone
a week.
Dave Olson left Sunday morning
to take his granddaughter Maddi
Bauer to Minneapolis for her reg-
ular check-up.
Talked to Lucille Huether on the
phone the other day. She informed
me that her sister Phyllis Reub’s
birthday was on Saturday, Janu-
ary 5th. Phyllis and her son Larry
were going to come by to get Lu-
cille and all go to lunch for the oc-
casion. We’ll send birthday greet-
ings to Phyllis.
Evelyn Kjerstad was down from
Rapid City on Sunday to attend
church and the “soup/sandwich”
lunch after, hosted by the United
Methodist men. Some of the after-
noon was spent at Kirby Keyser’s
home where a few scrabble games
took place.
The Senior Citizen group (YAH)
met on Monday at Prairie Village
for their regular meeting. They
didn’t hold a meeting in December
but addressed Christmas cards to
those away or not able to get out.
They also had a party — fun,
games and food. They elected offi-
cers at the January meeting and
discussed activities coming up.
So many deaths and funerals
have taken place! Our condolences
go out to all of the families. Pearl
Lurz died on December 28th at the
Philip Hospital. Her funeral was
at the Wall Methodist Church on
January 2nd with burial in the
Wall Cemetery. She was 99 years
old — what a long life!
Linda Hook died on December
28th at Hospice of the Hills, Rapid
City. On January 4th, a host of
family and friends gathered at the
St. Patrick’s Church, Wall, for her
funeral. She was buried at the
Black Hills National Cemetery at
Sturgis.
Wes Davis passed away, also, on
December 28th. His funeral was at
the Lutheran Church in Wall with
interment at the Black Hills Na-
tional Cemetery with military hon-
ors on January 4th.
Tressa Gabriel was 90 years old
when she died at the Philip Hospi-
tal on January 1st. Her funeral
was at the United Methodist
Church at Wall on Monday, the
7th, with Harold Delbridge offici-
ating. Burial followed in the Wall
Cemetery.
The Wall High School Drama
group will be presenting their one-
act play “Orphan Trains,” at the
Power House on Sunday, January
13th for the public. Around twenty
are involved in this production
which will go to Pierre on Wednes-
day, the 16th, for the regional con-
test.
Lois Swan, Bruce’s mother, had
hip surgery on Friday at the Black
Hills Surgical Hospital in Rapid
City. She is doing well — plans are
for her to recuperate at Bruce and
Kathy’s home. It may be noted
that she loves company, so guess
that is an open invitation.
Mark on your calendar these
events coming up — Theme Meal
on January 15th. Menu is roast
pork, mashed potatoes, gravy,
corn, crunchy cranberry salad and
cake.
Caramel Cinnamon Rolls will be
served on January 17, 2013, start-
ing at 8:30 a.m.
Also on the evening of January
17th is the monthly senior’s
potluck supper, starting at 6 p.m.
Hope to se you at all these events.
It is nice to have only one Sun-
day in a week! When holidays
come, it feels like a Sunday and it
takes a while before the week
straightens out — anyway, it does
for me. Won’t have any of those for
quite some time now or early news
deadline.
Have a good week!

Having survived the end of the
“Mayan Calendar” and the “Fiscal
Cliff” seems a fairly positive begin-
ning for 2013. What 2013 brings is
its own can of worms.
Checking in with a few Wasta
neighbors:
Stanley and Kathy McNabb wel-
comed daughter Kenna from Idaho
with her two sons, Hadley and
Hogan, for a short but good visit at
Christmas.
Wanda Hall had family from
Iowa. Son Mike, his wife Nicole
and their sons, Haden and Broden,
traveled from Cedar Rapids to be
with Wanda for Christmas. Wanda
said that though it was a short
visit it was just great to be to-
gether.
When asked about New Year’s
resolutions, Wanda stated she did-
n’t “do them”. Well, neither do I,
but Katy Humphrey came up with
the Best! It puts a smile on my
face!
Now to the Humphreys, Anna
Lee was joined by Carl, daughter
Linda and her husband Ron Op-
stedahl for a delicious Christmas
meal at the Good Samaritan. Ron
is recovering well from his stroke
and they enjoyed a good visit.
Faye Bryan spent Christmas
day with friends, Sheila and Steve
Drees in Wall.
Mary Lewis would get the “most
miles traveled” with her visit to
New Hampshire and son John
Gibson, his wife Smeda and
daughters Uma and Surya.
Mary returned to Wasta in time
to host a New Years Eve oyster
stew (and assorted yummies) with
Faye, Hazel Kalkbrenner and
Margee and Lloyd Willey. It was a
good time had by all.
Ray and Jamy Williams and
baby Mavrick celebrated Christ-
mas at Jamy’s mother’s home near
Murdo/Belvidere the Saturday be-
fore Christmas. Jamy’s sisters and
brothers and families were there
so a good Christmas and a good
first Christmas for baby Mavrick.
Another baby in Wasta cele-
brated her first Christmas as well.
Kylee Skillingstad was born the
end of June and is at the irre-
sistible age of darling smiles and
coos and giggles.
Doreen Skillingstad said their
Christmas was very good, even
calming. Kyle was home from
North Dakota oil fields and the
family enjoyed time together and
dinner with daughter Kortney,
husband Derek and daughters Na-
talee and Kylee Smid.
Doreen and Dayton celebrated
New Year’s Eve with Kortney and
Derek, Natalee and Kylee and
then finished the evening with
board games.
I’m hoping the Christmas sea-
son was truly joyous and blessed
for all and that the New Year is
just “knock your socks off” great!
Happy Trails!
P.S.: Listening to the NEWS —
and I think wouldn’t it be wonder-
ful if North Dakota saved the U.S.
economy?

By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Prayer, in Old Testament times, was based upon a
covenant relationship with God, or it was an appeal to
His revealed nature as merciful, gracious, etc. Today it is
based upon the redemptive work of Christ, whose death
opened the way for us into the Father’s presence. This
is why acceptable prayer today is offered “in the name of
the Lord Jesus Christ”. With our Lord’s departure from
this world in view, He said to His disciples:
“I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man
cometh unto the Father but by Me” (John 14:6).
“Hitherto have ye asked nothing in My name…
At that day ye shall ask in My name: and I say
not unto you that I will pray the Father for you,
for the Father Himself loveth you, because ye
have loved Me…” (John 16:24-27).
Thus today we pray directly to the Father in the name
of the Son.
Our prayers, however, are often faltering and some-
times the way is so dark before us that we do not even
know what to ask for. Thus Paul declared: “We know not
what we should pray for as we ought” (Rom.8:26). But
he was quick to follow this with the declaration:
“And we know that all things work together for
good to them that love God, to them who are the
called according to His purpose” (Rom.8:28).
This is why the Apostle Paul encourages
God’s people:
“Be careful [anxious] for nothing, but in every-
thing, by prayer and supplication, with thanks-
giving, let your requests be made known unto
God:
“And the peace of God, which passeth all un-
derstanding, shall keep your hearts and minds
through Christ Jesus” (Phil.4:6,7).
“Let us therefore come boldly unto the throne
of grace, that we may obtain mercy, and find
grace to help in time of need” (Heb.4:16).

Berry-licious snacks kids can make
One of the best ways to get kids
to eat healthier food is to let them
make it themselves. And these
snack recipes using blueberries
and strawberries are so good —
and so easy — you may have a hard
time getting the kids out of the
kitchen.
Not only do they taste good,
they’re good for you. Blueberries
are good for your eyes and memory,
and they have antioxidants, which
may prevent some types of cancer.
Strawberries have vitamin C and
fiber, which is good for your diges-
tive system and helps you feel full.

Yield: 14 servings
Grown-Up Alert: Supervise

oven.
2 cups biscuit mix
1 cup Florida blueberries
1 cup pecans, chopped
2 tablespoons low-fat milk
1/2 cup honey, divided
Preheat oven to 350°F.
In large mixing bowl, combine
biscuit mix, blueberries, pecans
and milk. Mix well and add enough
honey to make mixture stiff like
cookie dough.

onto a greased baking sheet about
2 inches apart.

Freezer Pops
Yield: 10 servings
1 pound Florida strawberries,
hulled and chopped
1/4 cup sugar
1 lemon, juiced
2 cups low-fat vanilla yogurt
10 freezer pop molds and sticks
In blender or food processor add
half of the strawberries, sugar and
lemon juice. Purée ingredients
until sugar is dissolved. Pour mix-
ture into a small pitcher or con-
tainer and add the rest of the
chopped strawberries.
Fill each freezer pop mold by al-
ternating layers of strawberry mix-
ture and yogurt. Insert handle or
stick into each freezer pop and
freeze at least 5 hours. To serve,
run warm water over outside of
molds until pops come out easily.
If you don’t have freezer pop
molds, use small paper cups. Cover
tops of cups with plastic wrap and
poke the sticks through the plastic
to keep them standing upright
while in the freezer.
Tressa Gabriel_________________________________
Tressa Gabriel, age 90, of Philip,
S.D., died Tuesday, January 1,
2013, at the Hans P. Peterson Me-
morial Hospital in Philip.
Tressa Belle Coleman was born
October 24, 1922, in Woodbine,
Iowa, the daughter of Orrin Wes-
ley and Goldia Belle (Thomas)
Coleman. She lived near Pisgah,
Iowa, with her parents and older
sister, Erma, until they left their
home in the Loess Hills to move to
Haakon County northwest of
Philip, at the age of eight. They
traveled at 45 mph in the Model T
Ford while their personal belong-
ings and livestock were shipped to
Cottonwood on the train.
On the farm, she helped milk
cows, herd sheep, with chores rais-
ing hogs and gardening. Her
mother taught her to preserve veg-
etables and to prepare wholesome
meals.
Tressa attained an eighth grade
education at North Lincoln School.
Being too far to walk, they rode
horseback when the weather per-
mitted. In cold, snowy weather
Tressa had a room and boarded at
Axel Olson’s.
An experience she and Erma
talked about often, was Erma tak-
ing a rein from her horse’s bridle to
kill a rattlesnake while she was on
the horse – something she did
often. One time, the snake caught
in the rein hooks, and the horses
spooked and ran full speed home
with the snake flying in the air be-
hind.
Tressa met her lifetime partner
when Floyd Gabriel arrived at her
parents’ to purchase some hay.
Floyd and Tressa developed a com-
panionship that lasted a lifetime.
Coleman’s were concerned about
Tressa and Floyd dating. For them
to go anywhere, it was necessary
to take Erma and Frank, (Floyd’s
brother), along as chaperones.
Tressa and Floyd were married
March 17, 1941, in Philip. They
went to Iowa and Nebraska to visit
relatives for a honeymoon. Quote
of Floyd’s taken from Tressa’s
Bride’s Book. “We got home in fine
shape and found everything was
o.k. We were a little wiser but just
as foolish and wished our honey-
moon to continue indefinitely.”
This marriage was truly made in
heaven. They were business part-
ners as well. At first they sum-
mered sheep for neighbors as well
as themselves on land for which
they borrowed money to purchase.
When Floyd was away helping
neighbors whose family member
were serving in the war, Tressa
was responsible for their business.
After Beverly was born, Tressa
loaded her on the saddle and took
her to tend the sheep all day long.
Their only rest was a nap in the
shade of the sheep wagon while
the sheep bedded down by water
during the heat of the day.
When Tressa was in late preg-
nancy with Larry, Tressa, leading
Beverly, took a sheep buyer to view
the herd. He told Floyd, “You want
too much for your sheep, but I feel
sorry for your wife so I’ll give you
what you want.”
Cattle replaced the sheep in
their business. Tressa still rode
horseback. “Dixie,” her mare, was
still very important in her life.
In addition to Beverly and Larry,
a sister, Ruby, brightened Tressa’s
life. In 1981, Floyd, Tressa and
Ruby began traveling the United
States. Tressa enjoyed continued
trips, collecting state plates and
shot glasses while seeing most of
the continental United States and
part of Canada. Tressa became an
excellent map reader, instructing
Ruby where to turn. Branson, Mo.,
was the highlight of her trips.
She was active in the Dowling
Community Church where she
was baptized. She was treasurer
for many years.
Tressa’s hobbies included play-
ing the piano, which was pur-
chased in 1956 to replace the
pump organ which she played by
ear. She also played the violin, em-
broidered, scrapbooked her chil-
dren’s activities and trips, and en-
joyed reading historical fiction.
Leaving to mourn her loss are
her three children, Beverly
Hamann and her husband, Herb,
of Clear Lake, Larry Gabriel and
his wife, Charlotte, of Quinn, and
Ruby Gabriel of Pedro; a double
niece, Cindy Nuzum, of Buffalo;
four grandchildren; and six great-
grandchildren.
Tressa was preceded in death by
her husband, Floyd, on February
5, 1998; her parents; her only sib-
ling, Erma Gabriel; and two great-
grandchildren.
Services were held Monday, Jan-
uary 7, at the United Methodist
Church in Wall, with Pastor
Harold Delbridge officiating.
Interment was at the Wall
Cemetery.
A memorial has been estab-
lished.
Arrangements were with the
Rush Funeral Chapel of Wall.
Her online guestbook is avail-
able at www.rushfuneralhome.com

tended rural school. As a young
lady, she herded sheep for her
grandfather, Vian.
She met her future husband,
George Carson, and they were
married February 9, 1935, at
Valentine. They made their home
in Kilgore, Neb., until 1942, when
they moved to a ranch near Long
Valley. In 1976, because of George’s
health, they retired and moved
into Kadoka.
Her husband, George, preceded
her in death on August 12, 1980.
Winona continued to reside in
Kadoka, where she cleaned the
Presbyterian Church and the

State parks’ first day hikes a success
For the second year, America’s
State Parks hosted First Day Hikes
in all 50 states. Over 22,000 people
across the nation greeted the New
Year by getting “naturally healthy”
hiking in a state park on New Year’s
Day.
As a nation, 22,433 First Day
Hikers logged a total of 45,000
miles on Jan. 1, 2013, in hikes that
ranged from 1 mile to 9 miles
round-trip. The annual event, spon-
sored by state park systems
throughout the nation, highlights
the state parks’ effort to promote
healthy lifestyles.
In South Dakota, hikes were held
in 14 state parks where 172 partic-
ipants hiked nearly 300 miles col-
lectively. Hikes included a variety of
themes from snowshoeing to bird
watching to a scavenger hunt.
“These hikes are a great re-
minder for everyone that the state
parks are open year-round,” said
South Dakota Parks and Recreation
Director Doug Hofer. “Hiking, ice
fishing, cross country skiing and
snowshoeing are all great activities
for the winter months.”
First Day Hikes originated at
Blue Hills Reservation in Milton,
Massachusetts in 1992. In the past,
several states offered special pro-
grams on New Year’s Day. However,
Jan. 1, 2012, marked the first time
all 50 state park systems joined to-
gether to offer America’s State
Parks First Day Hikes. In the inau-
gural year, 400 state parks hosted
14,000 First Day Hikers so this year
represents a significant increase in
hike locations and participation.

gramming and events in South
Dakota State Parks, visit

As an investor, how can you
avoid making mistakes? It’s not al-
ways easy, because investing can
be full of potential pitfalls. But if
you know what the most common
mistakes are at different stages of
an investor’s life, you may have a
better chance of avoiding these
costly errors.
Let’s take a look at some invest-
ment mistakes you’ll want to avoid
when you’re young, when you’re in
mid-career, when you’re nearing
retirement and when you’ve just
retired.
When you’re young …
Mistake: Investing too conserva-
tively (or not at all) — If you’re just
entering the working world, you
may not have a lot of money with
which to invest. But don’t wait
until your income grows — putting
away even a small amount each
month can prove quite helpful. Ad-
ditionally, don’t make the mistake
of investing primarily in short-
term vehicles that may preserve
your principal but offer little in the
way of growth potential. Instead,
position your portfolio for growth.
Of course, stock prices will always
fluctuate, but you potentially have
decades to overcome these short-
term declines. Since this money is
for retirement, your focus should
be on the long term — and it’s im-
possible to reach long-term goals
with short-term, highly conserva-
tive investments.
When you’re in mid-career …
Mistake: Putting insufficient
funds into your retirement ac-
counts — At this stage of your life,
your earning power may well have
increased substantially. As a re-
sult, you should have more money
available to invest for the future —
specifically, you may now be able to
“max out” on your IRA and still
boost your contributions to your
employer-sponsored retirement
plan, such as your 401(k), 403(b) or
457(b). These retirement accounts
offer tax advantages that you may
not receive in ordinary savings and
investment accounts. Try to put
more money into these retirement
accounts every time your salary
goes up.
When you’re nearing retirement

Mistake: Not having balance in
your investment portfolio — When
they’re within just a few years of
retirement, some people may go to
extremes, either investing too ag-
gressively to try to make up for lost
time or too conservatively in an at-
tempt to avoid potential declines.
Both these strategies could be
risky. So as you near retirement,
seek to balance your portfolio. This
could mean shifting some of your
investment dollars into fixed-in-
come vehicles to provide for your
current income needs while still
owning stocks that provide the
growth potential to help keep up
with inflation in your retirement
years.
When you’ve just retired …
Mistake: Failing to determine an
appropriate withdrawal rate —
Upon reaching retirement, you will
need to carefully manage the
money you’ve accumulated in your
IRA, 401(k) and all other invest-
ment accounts. Obviously, your
chief concern is outliving your
money, so you’ll need to determine
how much you can withdraw each
year. To arrive at this figure, take
into account your current age, your
projected longevity, the amount of
money you’ve saved and the esti-
mated rate of return you’re getting
from your investments. This type
of calculation is complex, so you
may want to consult with a finan-
cial professional.
By avoiding these errors, you can
help ensure that, at each stage of
your life, you’re doing what you can
to keep making progress toward
your financial goals.

Mrs. Samra Trask, the district’s high
school math teacher, presented how her
class utilizes the Fujitsu computers that
were purchased for pre-calculus. Libbi
Sykora assisted Mrs. Trask with the pres-
entation. They were both very thankful
for having this technology to use.
The next on the agenda were committee
reports. The policy committee had a
meeting and handed out 2 policies for re-
view, a school volunteer policy and a pro-
fessional development policy.
Williams discussed the Associated
School Board Delegate Assembly she at-
tended on behalf of our district. She
noted that all of the resolutions that were
presented at the region meeting passed.
Williams has researched the new federal
regulations on school lunch and does not
support the new regulations because she
doesn’t feel they fit our school district.
Williams proposed a resolution to the
ASBSD Board and Assembly urging flex-
ibility for state and local food service per-
sonnel to adjust the nutrition require-
ments, including changes to the calorie
maximum, to ensure they are providing
school meals that meet the needs of their
diverse student body in their communi-
ties. The Delegate Assembly unani-
mously passed the resolution. She had
many conversations with other schools
that have been struggling with the new
regulations also. Williams noted that just
two days ago, the Department of Ag took
off the protein limitations from the regula-
tions. Noem, Thune, and Johnson were
very instrumental to get this change
made.
Elementary Principal Sykora announced
that the mid-term reports were sent home
with the 4th – 6th grade so please make
sure you received them. The chain reac-
tion, the follow-up to Rachel’s Challenge,
has gotten off somewhat slowly. Sykora
has witnessed many kind acts, but it
seems the students forget to let someone
know. He’s been reminding the students
and has been adding links to the class-
room chains when he sees an act of kind-
ness. The Elementary and Big White
Christmas programs were a success.
Sykora has looked at the pilot testing re-
sults. The students are doing well on
many of the standards, but it’s hard to tell
how much they have progressed since
each assessment had some different
standards. Sykora and the staff continue
to work on the standards based report
card. The project is taking longer than ex-
pected to get a finished product they are
happy with so they are hoping to be done
by the end of the school year.
Business Manager Mohr asked the Board
to determine the number and amount of
scholarships to be given out for the Hayes
scholarship this year.
4751. Williams moved to approve one
scholarship in the amount of $250. Sec-
onded by Johnson. Motion carried.
Mohr discussed the option of combining
our election with the City of Wall and
Wasta this year. After discussion, it was

(cont. from previous page)
Even though change is difficult
for most of us, making change hap-
pen, by shifting attitudes and par-
adigms, is vital-even good for us
all. Change is inevitable-a fact of
life, and I find I must often remind
myself and others that new infor-
mation causes change.
Whenever new information from
our research and having an open
mind occur at the same time, it can
cause a shift in our beliefs, atti-
tudes and actions. Some times we
are stubborn and resist changing
our beliefs about something, and
that's understandable. However,
when we allow new information
that comes to us from a variety of
sources-information that is time-
tested and proven-we should at
least be open to the possibility of al-
lowing that information to change
our thinking and way of doing
things.
We all have a habit or a mind-set
that we know needs changing-an
area in which we want to experi-
ence true growth. We are tired of
the adverse affects this thing has
on our relationships, our job per-
formance and other areas of our
life. Yet we resist changing, be-
cause we think it is too hard to
change.
May I encourage you to en-
deavor, as I do, to allow new infor-
mation to cause change in your life.
I am not talking about making-and
breaking-the typical New Year's
Resolutions. No, I am talking about
making a total commitment to last-
ing change. Think of an area in
your life where you have been re-
sisting change, and do a little re-
search to find some new informa-
tion that will cause you to want to
change. As you research, think,
plan and process the information
you discover, apply it to that trou-
ble area of your life, and you will
surely, begin to change. I am not
saying it will be easy for you, for
changing is rarely, if ever, easy, but
it is possible. And it is good!
Change Isn’t Easy, But It’s Good!
