Governor Dennis Daugaard
compared a recent shoring up of
the State Capitol’s floor to make it
structurally sound for the next 100
Gov touts fiscally conservative state
budget in State of State address

years with the efforts of the state
to strike a fiscal structural bal-
ance.
Daugaard called both “good
stewardship.”
The governor delivered this com-
parison during the State of the
State address Jan. 8 in Pierre on
the first day of the 2013 legislative
session.
He noted that South Dakota is
“a comparative bright spot of con-
tained spending” in a nation of fis-
cally short states. Minnesota, Dau-
gaard said, is $1.1 billion short at
the current time.
While the Governor studiously
avoided education reform topics in
his message, he did announce a
criminal justice effort aimed at
lessening the number of inmates
held in state prisons. Instead, he
noted the results of a criminal jus-
tice work group, highlighting three
of its recommendations.
Those included the creation of
alternative courts for repeat of-
fenders with serious addiction
problems. A pilot program has
shown an impressive 80 percent of
participants back on track, Dau-
gaard said.
He is asking the state to copy
Hawaii’s HOPE program that re-
quires participating drug offenders
to call in each morning for random
testing. Legislation would set up
one urban and one rural pilot pro-
gram.
Third, legislation will be calling
for ways to keep drug, alcohol and
mental health offenders from
being incarcerated. He said 80 per-
cent of persons admitted to prison
are those who have committed
non-violent crimes.
“This is not being soft on crime,”
said the Governor, “but being
smart on crime.”

Sewer easement for the upcom-
ing sewer project dominated the
Wall City Council meeting held on
Tuesday, January 8.
Mayor Dave Hahn informed the
council that this is a working issue
between the city and land owners;
Bruce and Lynn Dunker, Mike
Casjens and David Eisenbraun
who were also present at the meet-
ing.
Dunkers informed the council
that they won’t pay taxes on a lot
that is useless and since the coun-
cil voted to purchase the lot for the
new sewer line already, why is this
still an issue. Hahn informed the
Dunkers they need a warranty
deed before the city will pay for the
lot in which they said their mort-
gage company is working on the
issue.
Dunkers also informed the coun-
cil that they won’t allow an alley to
be established behind their prop-
erty. Hahn said he had misspoken
during a meeting with them and
there was no plan for an alley be-
hind their property.
Eisenbraun related he had spo-
ken to his attorney and was told he
could either fight it and the city
would win anyway or let the city
have it. Eisenbraun said that is
why he gave the city an easement.
Casjens said, “he was in the same
boat as Eisenbraun and it really
didn’t effect him a whole lot.”
Stan Anderson asked if the city
could purchase the Dunker prop-
erty and get an easement and then
possibly sell the land back to the
surrounding land owners. It was
also discussed to visit with Haven
Hildebrand to get an easement on
his property from the north for the
new sewer line. A motion was ap-
proved to appoint the sewer com-
mittee and mayor to meet with
Hildebrand.
The Appraisal committee for the
backhoe ran into a snag. There can
not be a council member on the
committee. A motion to ask Dar
Haerer to sit on the committee
along with Paul Goldhammer and
Todd Sieler was approved.
The second reading of Ordinance
12-07; to make it illegal for people
putting their garbage into others
garbage cans was approved.
First Interstate Bank was ap-
proved to be the official depository
for the city.
It was approved to combine the
election with three other entites
and hold the election on June 4.
The salary resolution which had
its final reading in September, will
give the city employees a $700 pay
increase along with 25 cent in-
crease to hourly employees was ap-
proved.
Arla Olson who held a one-year
term with the library board de-
clined to accept another term.
Dave Jones was approved to be-
come the new library board mem-
ber.
Hahn requested that the city
make an “In Kind” water contribu-
tion for the new airport building.
Council approved the request.
The Straton building utility
costs are to high according to
Hahn. Public Works Director Jeff
Clark will look into getting a new
thermostat for the building.
Sgt. Dan Wardell with the Pen-
nington County Sheriffs Depart-
ment reported they did good on the
hours provided to the city. The
deputies are doing a lot of business
check and patrols. The new deputy
will graduate in three weeks and
will start in position in Wall
shortly after that.
Finance Officer Carolynn Ander-
son asked the council to review the
motor vehicle record policy and re-
port and to bring back any recom-
mendations to the February meet-
ing.
The Pennington County Emer-
gency Management agreement
was reviewed. The only comment
Hahn had was the 30 day billing
cycle. C. Anderson will see if the
billing cycle can be extended to 45
days.
Clark asked for approval for the
city engineer to begin working on
street projects around the city. He
noted the city has $250,000 set
aside for street repair in the
budget. Clark listed the following
streets and items that need to be
fixed: the intersection at Fifth and
Norris, gutters, a man-hole and
chip and seal on certain streets.
The work will be done this fall.
The project was approved by the
council.
Clark gave an update on Well 7.
He has found a used motor that
will cost $30,000. A motion to pro-
ceed and have Clark check on the
used motor was approved.
The next city council meeting
will be held on Tuesday, February
5 at 6:30 p.m. at the Wall Commu-
nity Center meeting room.
The meeting was adjourned.

Superintendent/7-12 Principal
Dennis Rieckman announced to
the Wall School Board and the
community that the Wall School
Board received the “School Board
Award of Excellence” at their reg-
ular monthly meeting held on
Wednesday, January 10.
The School Board Award of Ex-
cellence is given annually to a pub-
lic school board which consistently
demonstrates outstanding leader-
ship that enhances the achieve-
ment for all students. To earn the
award, a school board must have
demonstrated governance leader-
ship in promoting excellence and
equity in public education by ful-
filling its responsibilities to im-
prove student achievement.
The board will be identified and
recognized with a plaque and a
scholarship award of $1,000 will be
presented to them. The cash
award may be used at the discre-
tion of the board for board learning
and development, a scholarship to
a student of the board’s choice or
any other purpose to promote the
district’s vision.
Rieckman has recommended
that Big White School be restruc-
tured to K-5. He said, “He has
thought long and hard on this and
is very concerned with the direc-
tion we are going with the common
core standards for students.” Alge-
bra is now being taught in the
eighth grade and if a teacher is ac-
credited for that subject it can’t be
taught. “There is no way that the
school will be closed,” said Rieck-
man. He added, we just want a
better way to educate the older
students. He went on to comment
that there are a lot of different
grades for one teacher and one
aide to teach.
Parents from Big White School
prefer to leave it as an open policy.
“The decision should be left up to
us when we want to bring our stu-
dents to town,” said Jamie Moon.
Jeff Gabriel added, “through the
technology we have today we can
easily overcome these issues.”
The board and parents agreed to
work together to resolve the issue
and come back with a plan at the
March meeting.
Elementary Principal Chuck
Sykora noted, it is the end of the
second quarter and first semester.
Report cards will be sent home
with students.
The chain for Rachel’s Challenge
is now 85 feet long and has 250
acts of kindness. He would like to
see the chain continue to grow.
The board approved to combine
the election with the Town of
Wasta and the City of Wall and to
have Wall as the only polling place.
Rieckman asked the board mem-
bers to go over the first reading of
the Volunteer Policy and Staff De-
velopment Policy.
A security update was given on
the school. Sykora explained the
three levels of security and Rieck-
man added, Golden West will be
the staging area for students to be
picked up in case of an emergency.
The Technical Amendment was
signed by President Obama, which
will help in getting Impact Aid
payments, reported Rieckman.
The board approved the consent
agenda for:
•Minutes of the December 12,
2012 board meeting.
•January claims.
•Accept the retirement of Lola
Kleinschmit and Mary Ellen
Grayot, with regret.
It was approved to enter into ex-
ecutive session for the purpose of
discussing personnel, according to
SDCL 1-25-2.
With no other business the
meeting was adjourned.

Wall School Board receives School
Board Award of Excellence
by Laurie Hindman
The Eastern Pennington County
Ambulance District (EPCAD) be-
came a reality when the lease
agreement between the district
and the City of Wall was finalzied
on January 1, 2013.
“Funds and bills for the ambu-
lance service are now being de-
posited and paid through the dis-
trict,” said Carolynn Anderson at
their monthly meeting held on
Thursday, January 10.
The board discussed township
donations. Since the ambulance
service quit sending out letters
asking for donations the board de-
cided to have Anderson put a letter
together asking the townships to
help fund the ambulance service.
The board approved for Ander-
son to purchase Quickbooks soft-
ware for payroll purposes.
The board approved to pay Lu-
cille Holsether for the completion
of 2012 billing. A motion to review
the revenue for the next three
months to see when PCC takes
over and Holsether no longer does
the billing was approved.
Monthly meetings for the
EPACD will be held on the second
Thursday of each month was ap-
proved.
Anderson explained that she
will need to change the payroll
timeframe for the ambulance serv-
ice. She noted, the ambulance
service will receive their paycheck
during the middle of the month in-
stead of the end of the month to co-
Eastern Pennington County
Ambulance District signed
lease agreement with city
incide with the monthly meeting.
A motion to pay the bills was ap-
proved. Board members will initial
check stubs and the register report
for cross check purposes.
Two CDs totaling $72,983.94
have matured. The board ap-
proved to have Anderson put
$50,000 into a new CD with Ander-
son’s discretion on length of time.
The remaining balance will be put
into the savings account.
The annual meeting for the
EPCAD will be held in March. At
that time Jem Kjerstad and Nor-
man Eisenbraun’s positions will be
up for election.
With no other business, Presi-
dent Wally Hoffman adjourned the
meeting.

SDSU Extension will host Pri-
vate Pesticide Applicator Certifica-
tion Trainings beginning January
4.
Anyone planning to apply any
pesticides to an agriculture com-
modity potentially worth $1,000 or
more, need to receive certification
as a private pesticide applicator,
explains Buyung Hadi, SDSU Ex-
tension Pesticide Education and
Urban Entomology Coordinator.
"It does not matter what pesti-
cide you apply whether it is herbi-
cide, insecticide or fungicide you
need to be certified as a Private
Applicator," Hadi said.
There are three options to get
certified.
A person may attend a three-hour
recertification class at any certifi-
cation site.
Alternatively, they may stop by
the local Regional Extension Cen-
ter and pick-up the materials to
complete the open-book, home-
study exam, or the person may
take the Private Applicator exam
on-line at the Department of Agri-
culture's website, http://apps.sd.go
v/doa/pwt/.
Although it is the law to become
certified, Hadi says there are other
benefits to becoming certified.
"Certification gives you the tools
to apply pesticides properly, safely
and profitably. The certification is
good for five years and allows ap-
plicators to buy and apply general
and restricted use pesticides," he
said.
During the trainings, SDSU Ex-
tension personnel will cover the
South Dakota rules and regula-
tions about applying pesticides.
Depending on the location, we will
also discuss local pest manage-
ment issues, be it insect pests,
weeds or diseases.
There is no charge for attending
the private applicator class or tak-
ing the open-book home-study
exam to become certified or recer-
tified as a private pesticide appli-
cator.
A complete list of Private Appli-
cator Trainings is available at:

Dave Jones local writer and poet
of Wall, was one of a selected few
poets to win the South Dakota
State Poet Society annual contest.
Jones related he had submitted
25 pages of poetry in which 17 of
those poems were selected.
His poems are of the Wall and
Badlands area which he wrote
over the last couple of years.
Jones received his award at the
Festival of Books held in Sioux
Falls in November of 2012.
Local man wins S.D. Poet contest
Governor Dennis Daugaard de-
livered his State of the State Ad-
dress to the South Dakota Legisla-
ture this past week.
His speech touched on many
subjects including the Federal
deficit and the many economic un-
certainties the United States faces.
The Governor’s speech did not,
however, set forth much detail on
his plans for education and state
efforts to rebate taxes to encourage
private sector job creation. In
these areas, I believe the Governor
missed a great opportunity.
I am hopeful that the Legisla-
ture will give greater priority to K-
12 education and will make signif-
icant efforts to lead in creating a
rebate program for the contractor’s
excise tax.
As a member of the House Taxa-
tion Committee, my hope is that a
state contractor’s excise tax rebate
program could be designed to ben-
efit not only large corporations,
but also small businesses that are
investing in building and equip-
ment to create more South Dakota
jobs. First, I believe it is essen-
tial that any rebate must be tied to
verifiable creation of jobs.
Second, I believe that the rebate
program should be developed to
have a strong set of criteria for
qualifying for the tax rebate that
limits the discretion of State Bu-
reaucrats in picking winners and
losers. With those two components,
I could support the creation of a
Contractor’s Excise Tax Rebate
Program for the purpose of grow-
ing South Dakota’s economy.
The Legislature has much work
to do during the 2013 Legislative
Session.
Please do not hesitate to contact
me by calling 745-3228 or writing
me at Rep.Russell@state.sd.us.
I really appreciate your ideas
and any input you are willing to
give.

As I am writing this the stu-
dents and staff are completing the
first semester of the school year.
Semester exams were given and
senior projects have been com-
pleted. The students and staff are
ready to move into the second se-
mester.
The senior projects were dis-
played to the public and judged by
community members and staff.
I have been impressed over the
years how well these projects come
together and the quality of the
projects.
I have heard comments from
some concerning the necessity of
these projects. The students learn
time management skills, meeting
deadlines, working with mentors/
advisors, and bringing the pieces
together for a finished product.
I have seen students complete a
From the desk of
Superintendent Dennis Rieckman
project and not wanting anything
else to do with it and others solid-
ify their choice in choosing a possi-
ble career or hobby.
Four of the projects donated
back to charities or others; 75
blankets to Love Inc., $650.00 to
Special Olympics, time to Make a
Wish, and $1393.00 to help with
cost for rodeo contestants to the
National High School Finals.
The week of January 14th -19th
is School Board Recognition Week
in South Dakota.
Our local board has been chosen
to receive the 2013 ASBSD School
Board Award of Excellence.
They will be honored locally on
Saturday, January 19th during
halftime of the basketball game.
They will also be recognized on
February 19th by the SD legisla-
ture in Pierre and in August at the
Joint Convention in Sioux Falls.
This is a well earned and de-
served award shared with the stu-
dents, staff, and parents of the
Wall School District.
I want to extend a thank-you to
all current and past board mem-
bers for their time and dedication
to serve on the local school board
and make the decisions in the best
interest for the education of our
children.
The legislative session in South
Dakota has started up and we will
be tracking the bills which have an
impact on education and our dis-
trict.
As citizens we need to make sure
our Senators and Representatives
are hearing input from us on legis-
lation.
On the national level, the 8002
Impact Aid issues have been
ironed out and hopefully the school
district will be receiving the 2010-
2012 payments in the next couple
of months. We are waiting to see
what if anything will come from
the national or state level concern-
ing legislation dealing with school
security.
There has been bills proposed
and we all need to be diligent in
watching these bills.
From the Floor
By District 30
Representative Mike Vericho
It was very clear to me that the
message of this session’s first week
was – proceed with caution.
Although we can’t solve the fed-
eral mess, the federal government
can certainly mess us up.
My transportation committee is
made up of two veterans of the
committee and ten new members.
That’s not necessarily a bad thing
except when it comes to getting the
procedures and routines done. All
I need to do is be a good teacher
and be patient.
Once again the major challenge
will come in education with a
brand new contender being correc-
tions reforms. There is also a great
deal of concern being generated
over uranium and gold mining.
Most committees won’t start
working bills until next week so I
won’t speculate on any certain con-
troversies or issues until we get
through some of those agency bills.
As always I will keep a close
watch for excessive or new rules
and fees. Hopefully I can help fight
those off.
I will have much more detail in
my next update keep in touch.
I want to hear from you!

Some late Christmas and New
Year’s news:
Mark and Carla Brucklacher
spent Christmas Eve and Christ-
mas Day in Custer State Park
with Ron and Jennifer Tietsort
and family. Beautiful quiet snow-
fall Christmas Eve while we were
sledding with Noah and Hope.
Grandpa and Grandma brought
Noah and Hope home for three
days to work on the old “fixer up”
pickup that will be Noah’s when
it’s ready and grandma and Hope
visited Wall Drug and played
games. We went sledding behind
the four wheeler, then celebrated
both Noah and Hope’s birthdays
with presents and cake. On the
29th of December, we met Jennifer
at Hermosa and dropped the kids
off and headed to Greeley, Colo., to
spend New Years with Matthew
and family. We drove to Golden,
Colo., for a family gathering with
Sonja’s whole family and spent
time playing games and visiting
and watching movies. We headed
back to South Dakota on January
2. It was nice to see snow on the
ground all the way to Colo. A bit of
moisture for everyone.
The “Easy Readers” Book Club
met at the home of Arla Olson on
Monday evening. Eight were in at-
tendance. Mary Jane Doyle and

Saturday, January 12th, at the
Moose Lodge in Rapid City. After
our snow and blow on Friday, the
roads weren’t in the best shape, so
it might have kept some people
home. We want to send our con-
gratulations and best of wishes to
him.
Some people have been sick and
even in the hospital. We wish them
well and may they be able to come
home soon.
Everyone who went to see the
one act play, “Orphan Trains”, had
most favorable comments. They
seemed to think the casting was
great — those picked for each part
were “made for it”! Some had to
play two parts and showed they
could play each part separately,
showing their acting skills. The
Wall Drama Group should get
great reviews from the judges as
they go to Pierre on Wednesday for
competition. Good luck, guys!
January is scooting right along
with half of the month gone al-
ready. You may have noticed we
have a little more daylight, espe-
cially in the evening. Have a big
blow and snow — TV reported
Wall received seven inches — you
couldn’t prove it by me. We have
quite a few deep drifts and colder
temperatures. Warm up is coming
— isn’t it always?
Have a good week.

Wanderings, musings, ponder-
ings, cliches, colloquialisms and
arith-matic.
Soon this Wastan will be wander-
ing off to Florida to spend time with
family: daughter Alita, son-in-law
Ramon and granddaughters, Sofia
and Olivia. the eldest, Caitlin, is in
Utah attending college. Hopefully
son Scott will not have to travel off
for work and there will be time
with him, daughter-in-law Rochele
and grandson Clancy. this will be
the first time visit in their new
home near Orlando.
It is so very different when leav-
ing Wasta and it’s quaint quietness
and then being in a city so large
and so, well, bustling about all
hours of the day and night. It’s cu-
rious what has some of us thriving
in one environment and some of us
there struggling to survive! But
being with family is a good and
strengthening tonic so I can handle
busy bustlings and wailing sirens
and more people in the grocery
aisle than in my entire town.
Perhaps this environment and
its personal connotations is “a mus-
ing to be pondered”.
Right now, let’s take up cliche’s.
Thinking of Ramon brings to mind
the cliche’s that are often used to
fill a conversational blank and
Ramon’s interesting twists. He is
Cuban and though grew up in the
U.S.A., there are just some things
in speech/language that don’t make
the cross-over. For example, the
“ducks in a row” bit of wisdom
comes out, “I have all my ducks in
one basket”, or this one, “That is
the greatest thing since SPILT
MILK” and one I’ve really thought
well said, “You know, sometimes
there’s no other way but to just go
in and take the Bull by the” (no, not
horns) yet another appendage, and
one more “I showed him he couldn’t
pull the rug over my eyes.” I pretty
much sit and listen to Ramon and
hope for another maybe even better
version of an old saying.
Moving right along now, it seems
a favorite colloquialism or at least
one I’m aware of is my use of “a
whole nother” as in that’s “a whole
nother kettle of fish or ball game or
whatever”. In addition to hearing
myself use this mixed up word very
often, there are others who also
have this habit — it’s the South
Dakota in us!
Now, how about this? What ever
in the world is a “bear-cat”? That’s
a word (noun or adjective?) I’ve
heard all my life from family mem-
bers. When asked, cousin Danny
Gursen said, “I’m not just sure but
I believe you better not tangle with
one!” oh well, resorting to “Web-
ster’s — “Bear-Cat” a person or
thing having exceptional power,
strength, energy, etc.” So, okay,
Danny, you could be right.
Well, now on to arithmetic. Actu-
ally, I have no musings, ponderings
or readily available cliche’s for
arithmetic. Just wanted to get you
logic types to read on.
However, this just might be an
arithmetic cliche — “Figures don’t
lie, but Liars figure”.
Have you checked out the in-
creased rail traffic recently? Do you
care? Well, taking notice of the dif-
fering whistles is a late night occu-
pation of some of us. Hazel Kalk-
brenner suggested an engineer
heading his train westward warned
all possible cows, deer, turkeys,
hobos or Faye Bryan’s black cat,
Brave, “Train is coming, Train IS
coming” with one long blast from
the Schell Ranch to the Deering
Ranch. Sounded a plausible expla-
nation to me.
In putting away Christmas stuff
at the community hall, Lloyd and I
so enjoyed remembering the won-
derful Christmas season this year.
You are very special people, those of
you who came to “Christmas-fy” the
hall and those of you who came to
be part of the fun. It works because
you participate, you care and that
of course includes carolers and our
own very special Santa Claus.
Thank you all and we know we are
blessed to be part of this commu-
nity.
All of you good guys in Wasta,
please be in charge and keep Wasta
safe.
If anyone wants to do a Wander-
ings, just call Anne Jo at the
Courant. She will tell you all you
need to know and give a lot of en-
couragement as well. So, if I find
my job taken upon my return, that
will just be my tough luck and I’ll
need to find other fish to fry and a
whole nother thing to keep me
busy.
Happy Trails!

By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Have you been disappointed in your pastor or the
officers of your church or perhaps in Christian lead-
ers in general? Have you placed great faith in some
spiritual leader only to be disillusioned and to find
out that your faith has been misplaced? Have you
observed the growing popularity of some evangelist
or Bible teacher whom you “know” to be insincere,
while noting that another, whose fidelity and sincerity
are beyond question, seems to get nowhere?
How it helps, in such situations, to be able to
“rightly divide the Word of truth,” and to enjoy “the
full assurance of understanding” that comes with
“the full knowledge [Gr., epignosis] of the mystery”!
(Col. 2:2).
In “this present evil age” we are living under “the
dispensation of the grace of God.”
God is not saving good people today, nor even
people who will repent and “do works meet for re-
pentance.” Rather, He is saving poor sinners who
will come to Him with all their sin. This is God’s gra-
cious response to man’s rejection of the King and
the kingdom as offered at Pentecost.
Look at the way believers lived together in love
and harmony during the Pentecostal era and you are
apt to exclaim: “Why can’t we live that way today?
Let’s get back to Pentecost.” But look at the way be-
lievers lived together after the raising up of Paul,
even among his beloved Philippians, and you will
say: “It is no different today.” This is because the be-
lievers at Pentecost were all filled with the Spirit in
fulfillment of a prophetic promise, while today He has
in grace committed His message to failing men and
women, who indeed possess the Spirit, but often
grieve Him.

80 years ago…
In a hotly contested game on the
local basketball floor the Wall town
team overcame a fighting Dead-
wood quintette last Saturday night
in a thrilling game by a score of 41
to 29.
It has been reported that word
has just been received over the
radio of the death of ex President
Calvin Coolidge.
The County Commissioners in
session January 3, 1933, made the
Pennington County Courant one of
the official county papers for this
year. This will be good news to the
people of this end of the county.
Wall high school defeated
Kadoka high on the Kadoka court
last Friday night by a score of 21
to 15.
Dr. Mills reports that he and
family went Sunday, down to the
Pinnacles and on down the wall,
through the tunnel, up the Dillon
Pass and back home by way of
Quinn. This is the first report we
have had of any one ever going
through the Badlands at this point
by automobile, in fact a few
months ago it had never been ne-
gotiated even on foot. When this
road is finished it will be a fine sce-
nic drive and show what man and
machinery can do to overcome na-
ture.
Mrs. Mary E. Moore and
Charles Welch, Wasta, charged
with destroying property and en-
dangering life with an explosion,
were found guilty by a jury in cir-
cuit court, that returned a verdict
late last night after deliberating
about six hours. Mrs. Moore and
Welch were charged with having
caused the explosion of a tractor
near Wasta last May, resulting in
serious injury to the former’s son-
in-law, Paul Stillman.
70 years ago…
For a few hours as the old year
gave way for the new, Wall seemed
to be the thriving little community
of a year ago. Both sides of Main
Street were lined with cars. Coun-
try folks came in to celebrate the
advent of the New Year at the Red
Cross dance that was sponsored by
the local post of the American Le-
gion. Al Strandell reported that
the dance grossed well over $100,
and that there would still be over
a hundred dollars for the Red
Cross after all expenses including
the orchestra was paid.
The dawn of the New Year was
ushered in at Wall by two Flying
Fortresses coming from the east
and skimming over the town at a
probable speed of five miles a
minute. Two four-motored
bombers, 16,000 horse power —
flying in formation and barely top-
ping the buildings, brought every-
one out of their beds and rushing
to the windows. The roar disap-
peared as quickly as it came, and
only a few caught a glimpse of the
planes as they disappeared behind
the buildings. It must have been
an exhibition of blind flying. The
pilots were apparently flying west
at the traditional odd thousand
feet, and this time it was at a 3,000
feet elevation. Wall’s elevation at
the top of the water town is ap-
proximately 3,000 feet.
One of the large four-motored
bombers was forced to make a
landing near Potato Creek south of
Interior, Friday. The crew stayed
at Will Spindler’s (author of the
Lure of the Hills) home over night.
After refueling the next morning
the big bomber was able to take off
without any mishap.
The Quinn Times and the Un-
derwood Times were appointed by
the County Commissioners as offi-
cial papers replacing the Wall
Courant and the Hill City News.
The Rapid City Journal is the
third paper.
The results of the four team bas-
ketball tournament held in the
Wall gymnasium last Thursday
were, New Underwood won from
Interior and Philip won from Wall
in the afternoon. Wall won the con-
solation from Interior and New
Underwood won the finals from
Philip at the evening games.
60 years ago…
A plane accident and exposure
nearly took the lives of Wayne
Percy and Sidney Moss. Their light
plan crashed Friday morning in
the Badlands three miles from the
nearest ranch house and the in-
jured pair remained in the near
zero weather almost thirty hours
before being rescued. Wayne Percy,
the pilot, suffered a broken leg
along with cuts, bruises, shock and
exposure; his flying companion re-
ceived a fractured jaw and other
less serious injuries. Both are in
the St. John’s hospital in Rapid
City where Percy’s condition is re-
ported as fair and Moss as good.
The two men had left the Glen
Percy ranch northwest of Wall
early Friday morning to hunt coy-
otes. They left word that they
would hunt along the edge of the
Badlands east from the pinnacles.
At the time of the accident, the
pilot had banked his plane sharply
to give his companion a better shot
at a bobcat that they had spotted.
Just then the engine cutout and
the plane plunged into the rugged
ravine a few dozen feet below.
The Wall Hot Shots dropped a
game to Quinn Indes at Quinn,
Tuesday evening, 72 to 58.
The Wall Eagles took fourth
place in the tournament at Philip
New Years Day — but, the boys
seemed pleased that they kept
within four points of highly fa-
vored Quinn team. In their first
game, the Eagles appeared scared,
and the Philip team easily and
quickly piled up a sixteen point ad-
vantage. The Eagles then came to
life and played an even game for
the next three quarters with the
final score Philip 62, Wall 48. With
Quinn, the Wall boys kept the
score tied at the end of each of the
first three quarters. The last pe-
riod, however, the Quinn lads
edged ahead and won the game by
a two basket lead, 56 to 52.
South Dakota towns and cities
planned or completed more than
$300,000 in airport improvements
or landing strips during 1952,
James H. Hunt, state airport engi-
neer reported this week. Wasta’s
new Class 1 airport, was included
in this figure at a cost of
$19,000.00, and reported to be 98
percent complete and in use. (Wall
was not listed).
50 years ago…
Bob Sieler’s new car while
parked in Rapid City New Years
Eve was hit broadside by an ine-
briated driver causing extensive
damage to the Sieler car. He was
able to drive his car home but had
to tie the doors shut.
Last Friday, the Wall Eagles
dropped a close game to Interior 56
to 53 although winning the open-
ing 34 to 21. In the “A” game, Gary
Walsh and Glenn Kjerstad were
top scorers for Wall; and Donald
Schone, Ronald Heathershaw and
Jerry Sampson were point getters
for Interior.

State Parks bounce back from 2011 flood
Visits to South Dakota State
Parks were back on track in 2012
after a 2011 burdened with wide-
spread flooding.
State parks saw record visitation
and camping in 2012 after spring
flooding in northeastern South
Dakota and along the James River
and summer-long flooding on the
Missouri River closed several parks
and damaged others in 2011.
“Our park staff was extremely
busy from the fall of 2011 through
the spring of 2012 making repairs
before last year’s park season,” said
State Parks and Recreation Direc-
tor Doug Hofer.
In 2012, state parks hosted over
7.9 million visitors statewide and
270,000 overnight camping units.
Visitation increased by 11 percent
and camping by over 13 percent
compared to 2011’s flood-impacted
numbers. Park usage is back to the
record numbers that were set in
2010.
“I am very proud of all the park
staff, volunteers and contractors
who worked together to ensure
that South Dakota’s state park sys-
tem was able to host a record num-
ber of visitors in 2012,” Hofer said.
Fisher Grove State Park near
Redfield is the only campground
that remained closed last summer.
Plans call for relocating that camp-
ground this spring, and it should be
open next summer.
Arnold C. Wolden_______________________________
Arnold C. Wolden, age 95, of
Philip, S.D., passed away peace-
fully on Tuesday morning, Janu-
ary 8, 2013, at the Hans P. Peter-
son Memorial Hospital in Philip,
with his family at his side.
Arnold C. Wolden was born to
Johanna (Running) and Anton
Wolden on January 7, 1918, at
home in Union County, near Elk
Point. Both of his parents emi-
grated from Norway.
On March 9, 1930, the Wolden
family moved to Philip from Beres-
ford, driving two Model T Fords, a
1918 and 1925 touring car. The
family had loaded two box cars
with livestock, machinery and
household goods.
As a young man, Arnold farmed
the family farm northeast of Philip
with his parents. In the late 1930s
he was employed by Civil Conser-
vation Corps and Works Progress
Administration, which included
Lake Sunshine. He received his
pilot’s license in the late 1940s,
purchased a J3 Piper Cub airplane
and continued to fly until 1953. He
was a frequent attendee at fly-ins
and flight shows including
Oshkosh, Wis. Then he traded the
airplane for a new red Ford pickup
that was plagued with almost
“every problem on the planet” and
wished many times he had just
kept the airplane.
On January 30, 1952, Arnold
married Virginia Smith Johnson
at the First Lutheran Church in
Philip, where he was a charter
member. To this union five chil-
dren were born, Gene, Linda,
Roger, Mark and Terry, and he also
raised two stepchildren, Janet and
Michael.
Arnold participated in the Boy
Scouts with his sons, and he was
an active member of the South
Dakota Stockgrowers Association.
Other interests included attend-
ing auctions, rodeos, dances, visit-
ing with residents at the nursing
home and attending their dance
night. In addition to farming and
ranching, Arnold was also a grain
seed salesman for Sokota Seeds
and Conklin products.
Upon semi-retirement, Arnold
and Virginia took dance classes
and attended dances throughout
the local area. He also helped build
a house at age 80 years young.
Arnold enjoyed his children,
grandchildren and great grand-
children and taught most of them
how to drive sitting on his lap,
years before they were of legal
driving age.
Arnold was a kind, gentle man
that was wonderful husband, dot-
ing father, grandfather to 20,
great-grandfather to 22, and great-
great-grandfather to three; brother
to Julie Brooks and Helga War-
rington; and loyal friend to many.
He believed every child was the
brightest and cutest that ever ex-
isted. He will be forever loved and
dearly missed.
Arnold was preceded in death by
his parents; three sisters, Mabel
Kiel, Alice Hanson-Strand and
Agnes Fickbohm; two brothers:
Sam and Oliver; children, Janet
and Mark; great-great-grand-

Clifford D. “Cliff” Ramsey________________________
Clifford D. “Cliff” Ramsey, age
81, of Philip, S.D., died Saturday,
January 12, 2013, at the Rapid
City Regional Hospital.
Clifford D. Ramsey was born
May 13, 1931, in Philip, the son of
Claude and Hilda (Sether) Ram-
sey. He attended Philip High
School and as a junior, was part of
the undefeated, unscored-upon
football team. He graduated from
Philip High School in 1950.
Cliff ’s dad died when he was 13,
so Cliff assisted in running his
parents’ ranch at a young age.
After high school he remained at
the ranch.
Cliff was united in marriage to
Rita Urban on July 25, 1951, in
Pierre. To this union were born
four children, Doug, Bart, Vicki
and Gary.
They remained on the ranch all
their 61 years of marriage. He
loved the family, outdoors, and
hunting. He cherished the time he
was able to spend with all of them.
Cliff still has the state record mule
deer.
Cliff was a member of the
United Church of Philip, a school
board member, and church board
member for many years.
Grateful for having shared his
life include his wife, Rita, of Philip;
three sons, Doug Ramsey and his
wife, Phyllis, of Sundance, Wyo.,
Bart Ramsey and his wife, Marcy,
of Philip, and Gary Ramsey and
his wife, Amber, of Colstrip, Mont.;
one daughter, Vicki Eide and her
husband, Marvin, of Philip; nine
grandchildren, Brittany (Scott),
Michelle (Nick), Krystal, Cara
(Brook) Chad (Paulette), Carla,
Christa (Trevor), Chelsea (Tyler)
and Taylor; 15 great-grandchil-
dren, Jordan, Haley, Ramsey, Pey-
ton, Caden, Wyatt, Charlee, Kiley,
Taegan, Brayden, Keagan, Colby,
Jensen, Rayler and Aven; one sis-
ter, Hazel Thompson of Spearfish;
his mother-in-law, Dorothy Urban
of Philip; and a host of other rela-
tives and friends.
Cliff was preceded in death by
his parents and one brother,
Chuck Ramsey.
Memorial services were held
Wednesday, January 16, at the
American Legion Hall in Philip
with Pastor Kathy Chesney offici-
ating.
Music was provided by Sally
Jankord, pianist, and Glenn Par-
sons, vocalist.
Ushers were Norm Payne and
Dean Fitzgerald.
A memorial has been estab-
lished to the Haakon County
Prairie Transportation.

I am going to write the Interior
News once more, just to let all of
you that live away from here know
that Interior is still on the map
and doing well!!
Some of the highlights of last
summer are:
Matt Harvey has been working
in the oil fields in Tioga, North
Dakota, since last April. He gets
home to see his family when he
can.
Our local Elsie Fortune, daugh-
ter of Wayne and Kathy Fortune,
did very well at the South Dakota
High School Rodeo in Belle
Fourche the last part of June. She
won the title of South Dakota High
School rodeo queen for 2012 and,
also, was the State champion for
the girls break away roping. In
July, she went to Rock Springs,
WY to compete in the national
rodeo queen contest and ended up
placing 21st over all in the queen's
contest, plus getting 10th place for
personality. She made Interior
proud.
Anne Kruse, daughter of Charlie
and Beth Kruse, married Bryan
Shore in a beautiful outdoor wed-
ding on June 30, 2012 at the Char-
lie and Beth Kruse ranch. They
are making their home in Sioux
Falls, where both are employed.
Many people from near and far,
came to Interior for the Fourth of
July celebration. They had a nice
parade, plenty of excitement at the
rodeo, lots and lots of good food
and good visiting. They also had a
huge fireworks, some people com-
ing from a distance just for that
event. The people of Interior and
surrounding area are to be com-
mended for all of their work to put
on such a fine family celebration.
The summer was hot and dry,
but the grasshoppers were more
than plentiful! Ol' Man White
River even dried up completely for
two and a half months! The deer
had to come to the stock tanks for
water. Hopefully, we'll get some
nice moisture this spring and sum-
mer.
Kelly and Pat Fortune joined the
South Dakota Stock Growers on a
trip to Ireland last October. They
toured ranches and farms and said
it was a most enjoyable trip.
Kyle and Tricia Amiotte and
family of Wall spent the Saturday
and Sunday before Christmas at
the home of Kyle's mother, Asta
Amiotte. Asta spent part of Christ-
mas Eve with Tucker and Corinn
Amiotte and family, then left for
Winner to spend some time at the
home of Jeff and Dondee Kro-
likowski and family.
Jesse and Alice Baysinger went
to Phoenix, Arizona, to spend
Christmas with their son Wesley
and Lupe Baysinger and Taylor.
They had an enjoyable time and
returned home on December 29th.
Jesse and Alice are now living In
Rapid City permanently now. They
would enjoy hearing from their
Badlands friends.
Terry and Shirley Gartner have
sold their Badlands Grocery store
to Brett and Christi Guptill re-
cently. The Guptill's took over Jan-
uary 1st and are anxious to do
business with you.
Judy Livermont and her daugh-
ter Stevie Uhlir went to Chamber-
lain and Ft. Pierre a couple weeks
ago to attend Stevie's daughter
Shelby's gymnastics. This is
Shelby's first year and she did a
good job.
Asta Amiotte enjoyed supper at
the Chuck and Jan Carlbom home
about a week ago.
Wayne and Kathy Fortune went
to Wall last week end for the Wall
high school senior projects. Their
daughter Elsie is a senior in Wall
this year.
Carpel tunnel surgery seems to
be the going thing around here
lately. Jena Amiotte had surgery
on both hands last summer, Nor-
man Amiotte had surgery on one
hand in November and Chuck
Carlbom had surgery on one hand
in December and will have the
other hand done this Tuesday, Jan-
uary 15th. They all say it is instant
relief and are glad to have it done.
The Interior Volunteer Fire De-
partment are building a new fire
house in Interior. It is bigger and
mostly enclosed now.
Charlie and Beth Kruse enjoyed
a nice Christmas with all of their
kids and their spouses home. Sev-
eral of the Kruse family and
friends left January 2nd to go ski-
ing at Steamboat Springs, Col-
orado.
Carla Mcleron has been in a
swing bed at the Philip hospital for
some time now and could use your
prayers. She also enjoys visitors.
Shirley Gartner appreciates all
of her family and friends, from
near and far, for all of their
prayers, during her illness. She is
grateful to all of you.
All of my family got together and
had a birthday supper for me at
the home of Ken and Julie Bartlett
on Saturday evening. Besides all of
my family, Chuck and Jan Carl-
bom and Gene and Alecia Fortune
and Jett were there. Family,
friends and delicious food makes
for a good time.

FINANCIAL FOCUS
INVESTING IS A MARATHON
-- NOT A SPRINT
Richard Wahlstrom
www.edwardjones.com
Investors sometimes may get
frustrated with their investments
because those investments don’t
seem to produce quick results. Per-
haps that’s understandable in our
fast-paced society, in which we’ve
grown accustomed to instant grati-
fication. But investing is, by na-
ture, a long-term activity. If you
look at it in terms of an athletic
event, it’s not a sprint, in which you
must pull out all the stops to
quickly get where you’re going. In-
stead, it’s more like the 26.2-mile
race known as a marathon.
And as an investor, you can learn
a few things from marathoners,
such as:
•Preparation — No one gets up
one day and is ready to run a
marathon. Marathon runners train
for months, and even years. As an
investor, you, too, need to prepare
yourself for the “long run.” How?
By learning as much as you can
about different asset classes, types
of risk and all the other factors as-
sociated with investing.
•Patience — Marathoners know
they have a long haul in front of
them, so they typically create a
“game plan” — one that takes into
account such factors as their phys-
ical condition, the weather on race
day and the characteristics of the
course, such as whether it’s hilly or
flat. Investors should also create a
strategy — one that encompasses
their goals and ways of working to-
ward them — and stick to this
strategy.
•Perseverance — Marathoners
may deal with injuries, dehydra-
tion and other setbacks, either
while training or during the actual
race. But as long as they’re able to
keep going, they do so. As an in-
vestor, you too will face obstacles,
such as market downturns. But as
long as you continue investing and
don’t head to the “sidelines,” you
have a good chance of making
progress toward your goals.
•Vision — Marathoners study
the course they’re on, so they know
what’s ahead — and where they’re
going. As an investor, you also need
a vision of what lies in front of you
— the number of years until your
retirement, the type of retirement
lifestyle you anticipate, what sort
of legacy you plan to leave, and so
on. Your vision will help drive your
investment decisions.
•Proper coaching — Not all
marathoners have individual
coaches, but many have at least
gone to clinics or joined running
clubs so they could learn more
about the various aspects of this
grueling event. As an investor, you
can certainly benefit from guidance
or “coaching” in the form of a finan-
cial professional — someone who
knows your individual needs, goals
and risk tolerance, and who has the
experience to make recommenda-
tions that are appropriate for your
situation.
Every marathoner is familiar
with the difficulties of the chal-
lenge and the satisfaction of finish-
ing the race. As an investor, you
also will be tested many times.
Furthermore, you’ll never really
cross the “finish line” because you’ll
always have goals toward which
you’ll be working. Yet, by emulating
the traits of successful marathon-
ers, you can continue working to-
ward your objectives — and per-
haps you’ll avoid the blisters, too.

The Looking Glass of Time
Elm Springs in Meade County
after the holiday, she had visitors
from Creighton waiting her re-
turn. They were two coon hounds
belonging to Paul Lurz. The dogs
had wondered across the
Cheyenne several days before on a
coon hunt. They were wearing
identity, so the owner was notified
and made a trip of a little over one
hundred miles to get his dogs. A
dog, being man’s best friend, is
more than welcome to this accom-
modation. However the older dog
sitting very stately in the back
seat of Paul’s car on return home,
hung his head in shame knowing
he had caused his owner an incon-
venience.
40 years ago…
Dale and Lela Schildhauer have
purchased Bud Estes’ interest in
the S and E Gambles Store. Gam-
bles began doing business in wall
in 1946, in the front half of the
building now occupied by Shelton’s
V Store. The business was started
by Lysle and Norris Dartt. In July
1948, the Dartts sold the Gambles
Store to Elmer Estes. The business
grew and in 1950 he added onto
the building. In 1957 he built the
new fire proof building and moved
into it. Dale Schildhauer joined
into partnership with Elmer Estes
in April 1968 and became active
manager of the store.
Ted Hustead was presented a
plaque for 39 years of service on
the Wall City Council by Delbert
Sebade. The presentation was
made by the Wall Chamber of
Commerce at their noon luncheon
at the Cactus Cafe, Monday. In re-
ceiving the plaque Ted said, “There
were some ups and downs serving
on the City Council. A few times I
just as soon of not been there”. He
then mentioned many of the pleas-
ures and rewards of the office.
Richard Hustead, student at the
State University in Brookings, has
been assigned a student teaching
position for the 1973 spring semes-
ter in the Brookings Elementary
School.
30 years ago…
The final 1982 edition of the Pi-
oneer Review marked a milestone
in the newspaper career of Les
Ravellette, publisher of the Pio-
neer Review in Philip, the Pen-
nington County Courant in Wall,
and the Murdo Coyote in Murdo.
The New Years’ edition marked the
start of Ravellette’s 21st year as
publisher of the Pioneer Review,
Haakon County’s only legal news-
paper.
Work on the exterior of the First
Western Bank was completed last
week with the installation of a new
lighted sign. The computerized
sign offers several changes from
the old sign which gave the date
and temperature. The new sign
was constructed and installed by
Daktronics of Brookings. In addi-
tion to the time and temperature,
the sign has the capability of dis-
playing messages.
The Board of Directors of the
First Western Bank announced
Friday, January 7, that Delbert Se-
bade had resigned as president,
and accepted another position —
as vice-chairman of the Board of
Directors. Members of the board
are Bill Hustead, Merle Crown,
