Badlands National Park (BNP)
held a Bison Management
Plan/Environmental Assessment
Public Scoping meeting at the Wall
Community Center on Tuesday,
June 4, 2013. To successfully ex-
pand the range of Badlands bison
inside the park, the National Park
Service (NPS) needs to acquire ap-
proximately 660 acres of land
owned by Mr. Don Kelly that is lo-
cated inside the boundary of BNP.
The meeting was led by Eddie
Childers, BNP Wildlife Biologist,
who directed the meeting around
the primary question: if the bison
range can be extended from its
current location into other loca-
tions within the park boundary,
and what locations could or should
be added?
The US Forest Service (USFS)
and Kelly are considering doing a
land exchange of his private land
for public land.
Mr. Kelly would exchange his
approximately 660 acres inside the
BNP for approximately 640 acres
of USFS property immediately
outside the park. USFS District
Ranger Alan Anderson of the Buf-
falo Gap National Grasslands
stated, “they are only considering
the exchange at this time.” He
added, “We will have to do a lot of
paperwork, and evaluate the tech-
nical details before the exchange
may be considered further.
If a decision is made to move for-
ward with a proposed land ex-
change then we will begin public
scoping. Since the land sits within
the legislative boundary of BNP it
would then be open to bison graz-
ing and fall under management by
the NPS.”
A concern of ranchers and the
SD Cattleman’s Association is that
the park will keep expanding the
bison herd until the population in-
creases to the point that they will
need to acquire USFS or private
land beyond the park. This is not
the intention of the park, stated
Childers and Superintendent Eric
Brunnemann. Childers said, “BNP
should have approximately 1,000
head of bison this year after calv-
Research from population ecolo-
gists and bison geneticists demon-
strated that genetic health is
maintained in populations with at
least 1000 animals for minimum of
200-250 years. We aren’t looking to
increase bison numbers above
1,000 but would like to keep the
herd close to this number.”
The park discussed several dif-
ferent phases of fencing within the
BNP boundary to expand the bison
range. These phases would be ini-
tiated over the next 10 years if the
plan is approved.
Brunnemann said that bison are
good for the prairie and this would
mean there would be less pre-
scribed burning in the future. He
went on to say the park is kept in

Wall City Council and Sgt. Dan
Wardle went over several issues at
the Thursday, June 6 meeting.
The issues addressed were
•If a deputy makes an arrest on
a city ordinance the city attorney
will become involved in the matter
and the city will be responsible for
payment to the attorney.
•The noise or music from the
Wall Discount Mall will be pur-
sued with law enforcement.
•The ordinance on Pan Han-
dling will be aggressively enforced.

Linda Hiltner with the Forest
Service asked the council for a
three year permit for their Story
Walk. Council approved the permit
for 2013 - 2015.
Stacy Keyser presented a letter
and pictures to the council on is-
sues with her neighbors business.
Mayor Dave Hahn informed her
a one year Conditional Use Permit
was granted to them. Keyser re-
sponded by saying, pending no
complaints, but I do have one. She
went on to comment there was is-
sues with the business when it was
on the boulevard. Her concern is
she lives next to it now and has to
look at the property everyday.
Owner of the property Jim Tice
responded to the concerns. He has-
n’t been able to clean up the prop-
erty due to the rain and is having
a hard time getting rid of the rub-
bish. He told Keyser and the coun-
cil he is in the process of getting it
cleaned up and will have it done by
the end of the week. He asked to
have the permit reduced to 30 days
and will install a privacy fence
around his property.
Mike Anderson, Jerry Morgan
and Hahn will review the issue
and come back to the July meeting
with their findings. Tice was also
granted a building permit for the
The wine license for the Mocha
Moose was addressed by Annie
Tice-Poseley and CJ Tice. Tice-
Poseley is concerned with the last
two council meetings. She under-
stood there was a time issues at
the first meeting but was broad-
sided at the second meeting. She
asked, what is the community con-
cerns that have prevented them
from obtaining a wine license?
Council member Pete Dunker
who voted against the license said,
at the first meeting he thought it
was a good idea until it was publi-
cized in the paper and then he had
three or four business owners ex-
press their opinions, where do you
stop, everyone will want a license.
Tice-Poseley responded by saying I
have pursued this and I am not
getting treated fairly.
Council member Stan Anderson
also said he had numerous people
complain, he added if you open the
door for one when do you shut the
Finance Officer Carolynn Ander-
son added, you need to go to your
legislators and C. Anderson in-
formed them to call Carol Logan
with the Dept. of S.D. Revenue.
They were told to come to the July
meeting if they had any other
questions or answers on the issue.
Council approved a $3,500 an-
nual raise for C. Anderson.
The liability concerns with the
animal ordinance was dropped.
Council approved the city min-
utes for May 9 with a correction on
the library minutes and not the
ambulance minutes. The fire de-
partment minutes for May 7, were
also approved at this time.
The votes from the June 4 elec-
tion were canvassed. Gale Patter-
son had 30 votes; Jackie Kusser
with 22 votes and Joe Leach re-
ceived six. A motion was made and
approved to accept the ballet count
from the June 4, election.
At this time Pete Dunker and
Bill Leonard were recognized for
their time served on the council.
New council members Dan Hauk
and Gale Patterson read their oath
of office and incumbent Mike An-
derson also read his.
With the new council in place
nominations were open for council
president and vice-president. Rick
Hustead was elected president and

•Hours for the pool: Closed on
Wednesday and Sunday; hours of
open days: 1:00 - 6:45 p.m.
C. Anderson asked the council to
readdress the flood plans. She
said, with the slow drainage in the
Wall flood plane it would be wise to
put an ordinance in place for
homeowners to purchase flood in-
surance. The issue was tabled
until the July meeting.
Clayton Nickel with Sleepy Hol-
low Campground is selling 39

management,” noted Dave Ollila
on a South Dakota State Uni-
veristy iGrow Web page.
The 30th annual Rangeland
Days and ninth annual Soil Days
is set for June 25 and 26 at
Kadoka. Youth between the ages of
eight and 18, as well as adults, will
test their rangeland knowledge
during the two days. Youth are
broken up into four groups, based
upon their ages. Learning activi-
ties are designed for a variety of
age groups and expertise – start-
ing with plant morphology and
identification on up to judging
habitat suitability for cattle or
The first day is spent on the
prairie, learning about the proper-
ties of rangeland resources and
management practices to employ.
The second day the youth and
adults apply this newly found
knowledge through scenarios cre-
ated in a contest format.
In addition, students have the
opportunity to compete in cate-
gories including informative dis-
plays about rangeland, exhibiting
student developed range plant col-
lections and a speech contest on
range related topics. The student
participant with the highest cumu-
lative score in each age division
will be award a “Top Hand” belt
The age divisons break out as
follows: New Rangers – eight to 10
year olds, Wranglers – 11-13 year
olds, Scouts –14-18 year olds with
no previous range judging experi-
ence and Go-Gettters 14-18 year
olds who have previous range eval-
uation experience.
The participants in 14-18 year

“Rangeland is a kind of land, not
a land use. Rangeland is fragile,
yet durable and resilient. Manage-
ment profoundly impacts the sim-
ilarity index, a measure of range-
land condition that reflects its
value for livestock, wildlife and hu-
mans. The purpose of rangeland
judging is to provide an under-
standing of rangeland resources
and a sense of stewardship in nat-
ural resource management,” said

Available on the Internet at
2001-2012.pdf is a digital version
of the “Judging South Dakota
Rangelands for Livestock and
Wildlife Values manual.” “This
manual describes a contest with
components that have a strong bi-
ological basis for habitat manage-
ment of both beef cattle and prairie
grouse. Beef cattle have been cho-
sen because they are the most
common livestock species grazed
on South Dakota rangelands. Once
stocking rates are determined for
beef cattle, conversions can be
made to determine stocking densi-
ties of other grazing animals, such
as horses, sheep and goats. Prairie
grouse represent wildlife because
they are affected by management
and have the potential to occur
throughout the state. There are
three primary species of prairie
grouse that inhabit the state:
sharp tailed grouse, prairie
chicken, and sage grouse. Manage-
ment can achieve many desired
rangeland uses. Vegetation, live-
stock, and wildlife respond in a
predictable manner to range man-
agement practices,” said Ollila.

important South Dakota re-
Students will learn how to deter-
mine soil texture, soil depth, past
erosion, slope and stoniness. They
will also learn how to interpret
permeability, surface runoff and
limiting factors. From this infor-
mation they will determine the
land capability class. This will
allow them to make recommended
treatments for vegetation and me-
chanical erosion control. Fertiliza-
tion recommendations will also be
determined. Students will also
learn about home site evaluation.

University of South Dakota stu-
dents receiving academic honors
for the 2013 Spring Semester have
been announced.
Students receiving academic
honors for the 2013 spring semes-
ter are: Wall - Ben Anderson,
Amanda R Fischer and Jasmyne
Poste (Academic Recognition);
Representative Kristi Noem an-
nounced that she has introduced a
bipartisan bill to streamline and
modernize the Impact Aid program
which helps level the playing field
for many South Dakota school dis-
tricts with large amounts of feder-
ally impacted land including mili-
tary bases, Indian lands and fed-
eral property.
Noem worked with Representa-
tive Rick Larsen (D-WA) to author
The Local Taxpayer Relief Act.
The legislation reauthorizes the
Federal Impact Aid Program and
improves it by increasing effi-
ciency, eliminating subjectivity,
and providing greater flexibility to
school districts. The bill has been
endorsed by the National Associa-
tion of Federally Impacted Schools.
“Many of South Dakota’s school
districts are on or near federally
impacted land, such as Ellsworth
Air Force Base, nine Indian Reser-
vations and other federal lands,”
said Representative Noem.
“It’s important that we level the
playing field for these districts who
experience a lower local property
tax base due to this federal land or
educate federally connected stu-
dents. I was proud to work with
Representative Larsen in crafting
this common-sense, bipartisan bill
to make sure we are supporting
our schools and students.”
Noem also noted that this legis-
lation strengthens the Impact Aid
program without increasing gov-
ernment spending.
“Impact Aid is a lifeline to school
Noem introduces legislation
to help rural school districts
districts that keeps teachers in our
classrooms,” said Representative
Larsen. “This bipartisan bill will
provide permanent reliable fund-
ing to our schools, allowing them
to provide the best opportunities to
our students today and well into
the future. Representative Noem
has been a great partner in this ef-
fort and I look forward to working
with her and the rest of our col-
leagues to pass this bill.”
Impact Aid helps local taxpayers
by reimbursing school districts for
the costs associated with federal
property and educating federally
connected children. Together, over
1,300 of these impacted school dis-
tricts educate more than 11 million
children across the country.
Senators John Thune (R-SD)
and Mazie Hirono (D-HI) have in-
troduced companion legislation in
the Senate.

tricts Receiving Impact Aid:

Senator John Thune (R-S.D.) in-
troduced legislation to improve the
federal Impact Aid program’s effi-
ciency by permanently simplifying
payment calculation, resulting in
the ability for school districts to re-
ceive payments in a timelier man-
The Local Taxpayer Relief Act
(S. 1108) would also improve the
Impact Aid program to ensure
schools that have consolidated con-
tinue to be eligible for Impact Aid.
Impact Aid school districts re-
ceive compensation from the fed-
eral government for local taxes lost
on account of federal land within
their school districts, such as mili-
tary bases and federal land like In-
dian Reservations or federal grass-
In recent years, districts have
experienced a delay in receiving
timely payments, which puts addi-
tional financial burdens on already
cash-strapped school districts.
“These bipartisan, common-
sense changes make the Impact
Aid program run more efficiently
and ensure that school districts
with federal lands will receive
their payments in a more timely
fashion,” said Thune. “I appreciate
the work the school districts in
South Dakota have done to bring
these issues to my attention and
look forward to continuing to work
with them in the future to make
this program more cost-efficient
for everyone involved.”
Last year, Thune worked with
Governor Dennis Daugaard an-
nounced that he will not continue
the Department of Game, Fish and
Parks’ (GFP) two-year moratorium
on land acquisitions.
Under the moratorium, which
the Governor imposed when he
took office in 2011, GFP’s Wildlife
Division had not expanded its
overall land holdings.
With the moratorium ending,
GFP will be able to acquire land
for use by all South Dakotans.
The Governor and GFP officials
have added new processes for local
notice and consultation for all fu-
ture land acquisition.
“I believe the state should be
prudent about land acquisition,”
Governor Daugaard said. “I want
to consider local preferences and
priorities as we make sure that all
South Dakotans have great hunt-
ing and outdoor opportunities now
GFP land moratorium ends; new
local notice policy implemented
and in the future.”
GFP’s Wildlife Division cur-
rently owns less than 0.6 percent
of the land in South Dakota, which
is managed for wildlife habitat,
hunting and other recreational op-
Under the revised policy, county
commissioners will receive ad-
vance notice on all potential acqui-
sitions of 80 acres or more in their
counties, as well as the opportu-
nity to comment or meet with GFP
Individuals interested in a pro-
posed acquisition will have an ad-
ditional 30 days to provide infor-
mation, and all comments will be
considered prior to any action by
the GFP Commission.
GFP will continue to pay prop-
erty taxes on all acquired lands
and will only purchase from will-
ing sellers.
Thune introduces bill to streamline and
improve federal Impact Aid program
Senator Tim Johnson (D-S.D.),
Senator Patty Murray (D-W.A.)
and Representative Kristi Noem
(R-S.D) to enact a provision in the
Fiscal Year 2013 National Defense
Authorization Act (NDAA).
The legislation ended the highly
subjective “highest and best” for-
mula that attempted to determine
the “real value” of federal property
that had bred a highly inefficient
payment formula that was subject
to local interpretation by assessors
on the value of taxable property
adjacent to eligible federal prop-
That legislation created a sim-
pler formula that removed subjec-
tivity from the process. It also pre-
vented the need for the U.S. De-
partment of Education to conduct
regular, lengthy, resource-inten-
sive audits of a school district’s Im-
pact Aid application.
Historically, these audits have
resulted in delayed payments to
every eligible district.
Those changes enacted in the
Fiscal Year 2013 NDAA sunset in
2015, and Senator Thune’s Local
Taxpayer Relief Act would make
those changes permanent.
The bill is cosponsored by Sena-
tor Mazie Hirono (D-Hawaii), and
Representative Kristi Noem has
introduced the companion legisla-
tion in the House of Representa-
The bill is supported by the Na-
tional Association of Federally Im-

continued from page 1
The council approved the Street
Committees following recommen-
•Surplus International gravel
truck. Paul Goldhammer, Todd
Sieler and Joel Stephens will be
asked to appraise the truck. Bids
will be opened up at a later time.
•Use the funds from the Inter-
national truck to repair the Chevy
gravel truck.
•Speed limit sign at Sixth Av-
enue. Public Works Director Bryan
reported there are no speed limit
signs on Fifth, Sixth and Seventh
Avenues along with a few other
streets in town. Jim Kitterman
said, with out the speed limit signs
there is no way to enforce the
speed limit since they aren’t
posted. Bryan also commented on
the four-way stop sign saying, traf-
fic is running the sign constantly.
Patterson added, we need to take
care of the stop signs and prioritize
the speed signs. Council approved
a total budget of $6,500 for the
stop sign and speed limit signs for
Fourth, Fifth and Sixth Avenues
and possibly other streets.
The Celebration Committee was
approved for a noise permit along
with the fee being waived. The
Wall Drug was also approved for a
noise permit.
The council will proceed with
the abatement at 401 Glenn

Bison are good for park’s environ-
ment and its plants and we depend
on them for the health of the
“Fencing to expand bison range
to other areas of the park would be
paid by park fees because there is
a direct benefit to park visitors
who want to see the bison,” said
One attendee asked why not use
the South Unit and Brunnemann
responded, “it comes down to
money, it would cost approxi-
mately $1.2 - $1.3 million dollars
to fence just the South Unit and
the range isn’t very good.”
The Oglala Sioux Tribe (OST)
and the NPS have been working
since 1976 through a Memoran-
dum of Agreement to put bison on
the South Unit.
The OST is now discussing a res-
olution that will fence the entire
South Unit and adjoining tribal
land so that they can establish a
South Unit conservation herd.
Rancher Scott Edoff has his
doubts about the intention of the
park and USFS. He made this
clear through several questions he
asked. Glen Alishouse along with
Rick and Nancy Horton are also
skeptical of the plan.
Brunnemann stated, “the 2006
BADL General Management Plan
(GMP) provided a time period for
public comment on the park utiliz-
ing land within the legislative
There is plenty of water for the
bison to drink and by opening up
more of the park they will have
more grazing. This insures that
the bison will remain a genetically
healthy and wild herd, which is
the ultimate goal of BNP.

Teens from Philip, Kadoka and
Wall areas have come together
again to make an American Legion
baseball team.
The 14- to 18-year-old members
of the Philip Post #173 team have
already put two doubleheaders
under their belts. On Saturday,
June 1, they challenged the Pied-
mont Post – St. Thomas More –
team, which had already won the
high school state baseball tourna-
ment this year. “They’re a pretty
good club,” said Philip coach Kory
Foss. “We had a rough first inning,
but we did pretty well after that”
Philip lost the two games.
On June 8, Post #173 traveled to
Belle Fourche to win the first
game 12-4, then lose the second
game 3-9. Foss said doubleheaders
are done with the first game being
seven innings and the second
being five innings.
When it comes to practices, “We
kind of play it by ear,” said Foss.
“We have kids from all over the
place and try to work it to what the
kids can do.”
When it comes to travel, “We’re
on our own,”said Foss. “There
aren’t many Class B teams left. We
don’t even know who’s going to be
in our region this year. It’s hard for
a Class B to find games. You have
to travel quite a bit.
Legion baseball into 2013 season
“This is our third year I’ve been
with them. We’ve progressively
gotten better each year. Hopefully
this will be our best year yet. We
have a lot of good kids, on and off
the field. It’s a fun group,” Foss
The players include two from
Philip – Avery Johnson and Riley
Heltzel. Two more are from Wall –
Cass Lytle and Trevor Anderson.
The rest of this year’s team are
from the Kadoka area – Aaron
Janis, A.J. Bendt, Chandlier Sud-
beck, Clint Stout, Jed Brown, Nick
Young, Zac Stone, Storm Wilcox,
and Bubba Young from White
The game schedule for Post #173
is still tentative toward the end of

The annual FFA Advisor Tribute
Scholarships have been awarded
to four South Dakota FFA mem-
bers. Emily Anderson, Centerville
FFA; Kasey Schmidt, Milbank
FFA; Keisha Grubb, Miller FFA;
and Jennifer Emery, Wall FFA
have earned scholarships to attend
the South Dakota State FFA Lead-
ership Retreat of their choice this
The four students wrote essays
about how their FFA advisors have
made an impact on their lives.
Each of these students thinks their
advisor is one of the best there is,
and is happy to say so!
•Anderson, a junior from Cen-
terville, says "Mrs. Twedt helped
me gain the confidence I needed to
do many things.
She has always been there for
students and pushes them to be
their best.
She gets everyone involved in
volunteer work around town too."
•Schmidt, an incoming Senior
says of her advisor " I realized Mr.
Janisch was the one I could go to if
I had any problems including
school, FFA, or any part of life.
I am very appreciative of his
dedication, leadership and com-
mitment to the growth of the mem-

states, "Mr. Kettelhut trusts us
with responsibilities we will have
as we grow older and join the real
He always makes sure we know
what our responsibilities are, that
we will have to do many things by
ourselves, and take the blame for
our actions.
He pushes us to try our best and
gives us the confidence to achieve
many things."
Students receive scholarships to attend
FFA summer leadership retreats
Leonard Deboer “Advisor Trib-
ute” scholarship recipients chosen
•Emery, a junior from Wall, says
"I was a shy freshman. Ms. Her-
ring's goal was to get me to talk.
She took me to a Leadership Re-
treat which put me out of my com-
fort zone.
She did something most people
wouldn't - made me talk to people
I didn't know and wasn't comfort-
able with. Because she pushed me,
I grew and met my best friend."
These scholarships are made
possible by the South Dakota FFA
Foundation in memory of two past
FFA advisors: Leonard DeBoer and
Walt Johnson.
Both men led by example and
their advice was truly ripened
with wisdom.
Mr. DeBoer spent his life teach-
ing young people about agriculture
and the leadership skills that
would make them successful in
their career choice.
He was the FFA advisor in
Chamberlain for almost 40 years
where he lived FFA's mission by
making a difference in the lives of
students by developing their po-
tential for premier leadership, per-
sonal growth and career success
through agricultural education.
Mr. Johnson served as the SD
FFA Foundation President, as well
as on the SD FFA Foundation
board, in Newell as an ag teacher,
community supporter and coach
for FFA career development
He was devoted to agriculture
education and earned his Hon-
orary American FFA Degree in

Congrtulations on an outstand-
ing season for each sport.
By Libbi Sykora
Urban Dictionary is a website
full of definitions of “modern
slang” and other various terms.
The clever and sometimes crude
descriptions can be laughable as
well as ironic.
One day, I wondered what would
come up when I searched the word
“library” in this website. I
earnestly thought that the defini-
tions would have a negative conno-
tation. (Many of the definitions
were entirely inappropriate). How-
ever, I did find a really cool defini-
tion that I thought I would share
with you all.
“library (n.) An awesome place
that is underrated in today’s soci-
ety. Think about it – where else
can you chill in an air-conditioned
place, that’s quiet, where you can
read a cool mag or surf the net,
where you can take a nap, check
out movies, meet some friends for
a game of chess or cards, read
about whatever you like, get free
bookmarks, talk to some fine li-
brarians, walk around aimlessly,
find out how glow-in-the-dark
works….. and all for free!”

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by
Lloyd & Margee Willey
Yet another cliche of which I’m
fond is something about “enjoying
the fruits of your labor” and its
counterpart is the “consequences
of your behavior.”
The fruits of my labor is the
beautiful yellow iris blooming now
as a result of the bulb planting last
The consequences of my behav-
ior in taking two trips within two
weeks have left me with those con-
sequences being that the weeds
are taller than the iris!
Oh well, the rain is lovely.
Moni Grenstiner had her knee
surgery, Friday the 7th, is home
now with Travis, Madi and Ash
taking good care of her. Sister
Tammy Green will be available for
trips to Rapid City for P.T., etc.
We’ll be keeping Moni in our
thoughts and prayers that her
healing process will go very well.
Speaking of healing, Marilyn
Keyser is enjoying being back in
Wasta and part of her rehab pro-
gram is a walk to the post office.
She has her “resting spots” if
needed, but is doing so very well
after all she went through! It is
good to have your back, Marilyn.
News of other Wasta kids Kyia
Pavo, Angela and Tom Carter’s
daughter, graduated one year
early in Custer where she had
been attending high school. She
plans to work there this summer
and save what she can for college
expenses. Kyia chose University of
Mary in Bismarck, North Dakota,
where she plans to enter the nurs-
ing program.
Way to go, Kyia. We are proud of
you! Keep up the great goal setting
and achieveing those goals.
Other Wasta kids: Dylan Carter,
younger brother of Kyia, is em-
ployed at the rest area helping to
keep the place tidy inside and out.
Those coins jingling in your pocket
sound prettier when you’ve earned
them yourself. I’ll bet! Good for
you, Dylan!
Kids and sports: Brody Carter is
playing Little League baseball this
summer, and is doing well at third
base position. Games are Tuesday
and Thursday evenings with the
first game at 5:30 in Murdo, Tues-
day, 11th; second game in Philip,
13th; and home in Wall, Tuesday,
the 18th.
Holy Moley, that almost finishes
June. WHATEVER! Other dates if
changed from Tuesday and Thurs-
day will be posted.
Now, checking with Kayton
More on sports: Ash and Madi
Grenstiner have been attending
basketball camp. Coach Madison
McLaughlin volunteered her time
for two evenings a week to work
with the girls who are interested.
How thoughtful of you, Madison
and thank you for your attitude of
giving back to your community.
We would like to recognize Kerry
Heriger for keeping the north “40”
of the park mowed, Billy Hulm for
her park mowing, and Tom Carter
for his efforts at tree removal (a
blow over caused by wind) and his
mowing for neighbor, Dan the Red-
wood Motel Man.
Since we are scooting so fast to
July, that means the July 4th will
be here really quickly! It will prob-
ably seem like it can’t be, but that’s
how fast time goes for me.
Come be in the parade. Ride
your horse, ride your bike, bring
your dog, bring your goat, walk
along, dance along, have some fun.
We’re lining up talent, with a lot
of help from our friends.
Dorothy Shearer has agreed to
partner on this again and all are
invited to participate. You don’t
have to sing a song or play the
piano; a patriotic poem would be
good, a short skit, well you know,
it’s Wasta and there are no critics
here, just appreciators! We had
some fun dance routines last year,
so give a little thought to what you
would like to do and call Dorothy
Shearer at 279-2198 or Margee
Willey at 993-3149.
Thinking about the 4th of July
and its festivities in Wasta sort of
got me off track. It doesn’t take
much to get me off track!
Driving around town last
evening it appeared that many
neighbors were enjoying being out
and working in their yards and
then continuing with town stuff.
Faye Bryan has been one who
would get her mower out and put
it to work along Elm Street, Mary
Lewis spends a lot of time at the
park, and there is always some-
thing there to do. Mary invites
anyone with interest in keeping
the park a place we can be proud
of to participate. No formal appli-
cations necessary. And thank you,
Mary, the park is looking so good.
Back to Dayton Skillingstad and
his little league baseball team
“Dean’s Construction”. They play
their games on Monday nights as
do Kaylen Spotted Bear on Brant’s
Electric softball team and brother
Tyson on Wall Building Center T-
Bal. Alternating times of 5:30 and
7:00 also on Monday nights, it
shouldn’t be too difficult to catch a

Weather affects crowd
at historical festival
The 36th Annual Fort Sisseton
Festival managed to dodge the rain
on Saturday, but the wet forecast
affected attendance.
“We had a beautiful evening on
Friday, and had a nice crowd of
people,” said Fort Sisseton Man-
ager Katie Ceroll. “The gates sold
about 1000 fewer entrances on Sat-
urday and Sunday due to the rainy
weather and we had about one-
third fewer campers. Fortunately,
we were able to have a full day of
events on Saturday before the rain
The festival featured a variety of
historic, cultural and military-re-
lated events, including musicians,
Native American dancers, chuck
wagon cooking, a rendezvous camp,
military demonstrations and a cos-
tume ball complete with a grand
march. The festival also allowed an
opportunity for visitors to explore
the fort’s 14 buildings. Each build-
ing is a separate exhibit, providing
visitors with a full account of the
fort's use and history.
On Saturday, a plaque was dedi-
cated in honor of Governor Bill
Janklow. The plaque highlights the
role that Janklow played in the
restoration of Fort Sisseton.
The Fort Sisseton Historical Fes-
tival is held annually during the
first full weekend of June. The fes-
tival is just one of many special
events held throughout the year.
Others include Lantern Tours, Jun-
ior Naturalist Programs and the
Frontier Christmas in December.
The Fort also hosts Northern State
University’s summer theater pro-
ductions on weekends in July.
The park is open year-round and
features guided first-person inter-
pretive tours and a number of his-
torical displays. Reservations for
campsites and cabins at the park
can be made by calling 1-800-710-

It is difficult, if not impossible, to determine from Paul’s Epistle to the Galatians, just what the
Galatian believers thought the rite of circumcision would accomplish for them spiritually. We
doubt that they knew themselves, but the Judaizers had come in among them and had captured
their attention so that these, who had been so gloriously saved by grace, now “desired to be
under the law” (Gal. 4:21). They did not deny the efficacy of the finished work of Christ, but
they were interested — just interested — in submitting to a religious ceremony which would in
itself be a denial of the all-sufficiency of His redemptive work (3:1; 5:2-4). Result: the blessing
was already vanishing (5:14) and the Apostle had to warn them: “A little leaven leaveneth the
whole lump” (5:9). You can’t admit a little leaven and expect it to stop there.
With the Corinthians it was rather a case of countenancing moral wrong. One of their mem-
bers had been living in grievous sin. But then, their number was large, and he was just one,
and the congregation as a whole abounded in spiritual gifts. Feeling quite satisfied with them-
selves, therefore, they simply overlooked this disgrace to the name of Christ. But listen to Paul’s
— God’s — view of the matter:
“And ye are puffed up, and have not rather mourned, that he that hath done this
deed might be taken away from among you” (I Cor. 5:2).
“Your glorying is not good. Know ye not that a lithe leaven leaveneth the whole
“Purge out therefore the old leaven…” (Vers. 6,7).
In these days when both spiritual error and moral wrong are made so palatable, when apos-
tate unbelief and worldliness are presented so appetizingly, we do well to take heed to the
Spirit’s warning to quickly purge out the “little leaven” that threatens to permeate the whole loaf.

Lindy L. Lechner_______________________________
Lindy L. Lechner passed away
on Wednesday, May 29, 2013 at the
Harper Hospital in Harper, Kan.,
at the age of 83.
He was born September 14, 1929
to George Leonard and Velma
Geneva (Norris) Lechner. He at-
tended school at Adams High
He married Leona Kahmeyer on
November 11, 1951 at Nashville,
Kan. To this union six children
were born, Gary, Wes, Randy, Deb,
Sharon and Patty. They made their
home in Harper, where Lindy
owned his own custom harvesting
crew and also farmed. He was a
long time custom combiner in the
Wall area.
He was preceded in death by his
parents; son, Gary; brother, Del-
bert Lechner; sisters, Geneva Dies,
Georgia McDaniel and Judy
Crouch; granddaughter, Samantha
He will be deeply missed by his
wife, Leona; sons, Wes of Harper
and Randy (Kelly) of Tulsa, Okla.;
daughters, Deb Schulte (Garth) of
Spearville, Kan., Sharon Baker
(Bruce) of Pratt, Kan. and Patty
Simpson of Mangum, Okla.; nine
grandchildren; thirteen great-
grandchildren; and many other rel-
atives and friends.
Funeral servers were held Mon-
day, June 3, 2013 at Prairie Rose
Funeral Home in Harper, with Pas-
tor Michael Wolff officiating.
Interment followed at the
Harper Cemetery.
The other day, I was trying to ex-
plain to my youngest daughter the
difference between "doing" and
"being". Now this is a concept that
not many people really understand,
let alone a teenager who is always
looking for something to do. In fact,
I would dare say that most people
I know are so often in the mode of
"doing" that it makes me wonder
why we are not called human "do-
ings". But the fact is, we are
human BEINGS, and it is wise and
healthy for us to learn how to at
least once in awhile take time from
all the doing to simply be.
Face it. Most of us are accus-
tomed to leading our lives in such
a way that there is little time left
after all the doing to be still-to not
feel compelled to perform or im-
press others or meet another's
needs or go somewhere or deal with
difficult situations or make deci-
sions or check off one more item on
that To Do list. I would even go so
far as to say that most people don't
even know how to just BE.
Now don't misunderstand me.
BEING is not just sitting around
doing nothing. In fact, BEING is a
very active thing, like being a sup-
portive spouse, being a loving par-
ent, being a loyal friend, or being
an excellent worker. However, we
can run ourselves ragged if we
don't somehow find a proper bal-
ance in our lives between doing and
being. When we acknowledge and
feed the need we all have to be still,
to be quiet, to be a listener and an
observer, and to be thinking, pon-
dering, and meditating our batter-
ies are recharged so we can go out
and do the things we must do.
This goal can be accomplished by
shifting from always doing to find-
ing creative and innovative ways to
simply focus on being. Take to
heart this vital nugget of truth and
apply it in your life, then share it
with others and pass it on.

Jill Alfaro, age 57, of Philip,
S.D., died Thursday, June 6, 2013,
at the Hans P. Peterson Memorial
Hospital in Philip.
Jill Ann Fitch was born October
24, 1955, in Kadoka, the third of
three daughters to Lewis E. “Bud”
and Dorothy (Hansen) Fitch.
Jill graduated from Philip High
School in 1973.
She and her mother purchased
the 11-Mile Corner station. It was
there she honed her pitch and pool
playing abilities.
Jill traveled with her sister,
Diane, and two friends to Rome,
Italy, for the Holy Year Celebration
of 1975.
In the early 1980s, she and a
good friend, Paula Erdmann,
moved to Amarillo, Texas, to work
for Ike and Florence Dale at their
Husky Truck Stop. It was during
this time that she married Juan
Tomás Alfaro.
After she and her daughter re-
turned to Philip, she worked for the
box factory before going to work at
the local grocery store. She contin-
ued to work there until her death.
Jill loved nothing more than
being outside on a warm day, even
those unbearably hot South Dakota
days where even the breeze is blaz-
ing. She just loved the feeling of the
sun hitting her skin. Nothing was
better than being able to mow or
even spend the day reading a good
or terrible book, depending on
whether you liked Stephen King or
some juicy suspense, with a cold
beer in one hand and a bottle of sun
tan lotion in the other.
Her house was always filled
with music! From golden oldies to
some good old country; as long as it
was loud, it didn't matter. She was-
n't much of a singer, as anyone will
tell you, but she was one helluva
Jill cared deeply for every child
in her family, but for sure she had
a special place in her heart for the
Sloveks, Kash, Kaydence,and
Karli, and they sure filled her
heart with so much joy in the hard-
est months of her life. Although she
is gone, they can always count on
Grandma Jill to be watching.
Jill taught us many things with-
out having to try too hard. For in-
stance, she taught us to strive to
emulate a balance of strength and
compassion, dignity and a love of
mischief, but most importantly she
taught us to never take life too se-
riously and to just be happy with
the life you've got.
Survivors include her daughter,
Dorothy Ann Alfaro, and her fiancé,
Kyle Hoemke, of Philip; two sisters,
Diane Fitch and Marianne Frein
and her husband, Lloyd, all of
Philip; nephews, Tadd Moriarty of
Chicago, Ill., Vance (Anissa) Mori-
arty of Manhattan, Kan., Jacob
Frein (Melissa) of Rapid City,
Patrick (Amanda) Moriarty of
Rapid City, and Ian Moriarty of
Rapid City; nieces, Mikal (Rian)
Rasmussen of West Des Moines,
Iowa, and Laura (Bruce) Potter of
Brandon; a grandniece, Eliza Pot-
ter; grandnephews, Brodi Moriarty,
Finn and Donovan Moriarty, Colt
and Carson Frein, Graham Ras-
mussen, and Wyatt Potter; and her
special friends, Gina Thorson of
Wadena, Minn., and Heather
Eisenbraun of Philip.
Jill was preceded in death by her
parents, Bud and Dorothy Fitch;
her grandparents; and a brother-
in-law, Tom Moriarty.
Services were held Monday,
June 10, at the American Legion
Hall in Philip, with Father Kevin
Achbach officiating.
Music was provided by Marilyn
Millage, pianist, and Kristina
Schofield, vocalist. Ushers were
Rodney Dahlvang and Kalvin
Eisenbraun. Pallbearers were
Tadd, Vance, Pat and Ian Moriarty,
Kyle Hoemke, Bruce Potter, Jacob
Frein and Rian Rasmussen.
Interment was at the Masonic
Cemetery in Philip.
Arrangements were with the
Rush Funeral Home of Philip.
Her online guestbook is avail-
able at www.rushfuneralhome.com

Richard Wahlstrom
Despite the soaring stock mar-
ket of the past few years, some
Americans are nervous about their
ability to retire comfortably — or
even retire at all.
Consider these somewhat sober-
ing statistics:
•Almost half of American work-
ers report being “not too confident”
or “not at all confident” about
being able to afford a comfortable
retirement, according to the Em-
ployee Benefit Research Institute’s
2013 Retirement Confidence Sur-
vey. The 28 percent who say they
are “not at all” confident is the
highest level recorded in the 23
years of this survey.
•Between 2010 and 2012, the
percentage of people 45 to 60 who
planned to delay retirement rose
to 62 percent from 42 percent, ac-
cording to the Conference Board, a
non-profit business membership
and research organization.
If you’re in either of these
groups — that is, if you’re con-
cerned about having enough re-
sources to enjoy your retirement
years or you’re afraid that you’ll
have to work longer than you an-
ticipated — what can you do to
possibly alleviate your worries?
Your first step is to get specific
about your retirement goals. Have
you set a target date for your re-
tirement yet? If so, how many
years until you reach this date?
Once you know when you want
to retire, you’ll need to come up
with some sort of “price tag” for
your retirement years. By taking
into account your hoped-for
lifestyle and your projected
longevity, you should be able to de-
velop a reasonably good estimate
of how much money you’ll need as
a retiree. You may find it helpful to
work with a financial professional
— someone with the tools and ex-
perience to plug in all the vari-
ables needed to calculate your re-
tirement expenses.
Next, review your retirement
savings vehicles, such as your
401(k) and IRA. Are you contribut-
ing as much as you can afford to
these accounts? Are you increasing
your contributions when your
salary rises? Within these vehicles,
are you choosing an investment
mix that can offer the growth you’ll
need to accumulate a sufficient
level of retirement savings?
Even after you’ve “maxed out”
on your IRA and 401(k) or other
employer-sponsored retirement
plan, you can find other tax-advan-
taged vehicles in which to invest
for retirement. Again, your finan-
cial advisor can help you evaluate
the ones that may be suitable for
your needs.
Still, even after maximizing
your investments, you may come
up short of what you’ll need, given
your desired retirement date. Con-
sequently, you may need to con-
sider working a couple of extra
years. If you like your career, you
may find that moving out your re-
tirement date isn’t so bad — you’ll
bring in more earned income and
you may be able to delay taking
Social Security, which would even-
tually result in bigger monthly
checks. Plus, you could postpone
your withdrawals from your 401(k)
and IRA, giving these accounts
more time in which to potentially
grow. (Keep in mind, though, that
once you turn 70-1/2, you’ll have to
start taking money from your
401(k) and your traditional IRA.)
In any case, do what you can to
retire when you want — but be
flexible enough in your thinking so
that you won’t be shocked or dis-
mayed if you need to slightly ex-
tend your working years. By “cov-
ering your bases” in this way, you
can be ready for whatever comes
your way.

As the weather warms up and
the risk of mosquito bites increases
now is the time for South
Dakotans to get in the habit of
using insect repellent to prevent
West Nile virus (WNV).
“Just as we prepare for flu sea-
son each fall, we need to be pre-
pared for the West Nile virus every
summer,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger,
State Epidemiologist for the South
Dakota Department of Health.
“West Nile virus can be a serious,
Prevent WNV with insect repellent,
mosquito control programs
even fatal, illness but the good
news is we can all reduce our risk
with a few simple precautions.”
Kightlinger said people can pre-
vent mosquito bites and reduce
their risk of WNV by:
•Using mosquito repellents
(DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eu-
calyptus, or IR3535) and limit ex-
posure by covering up.
•Limiting time outdoors from
dusk to midnight when Culex mos-
quitoes are most active. Culex are
the primary carrier of WNV in
South Dakota.
•Getting rid of standing water
that gives mosquitoes a place to
•Supporting local mosquito con-
trol efforts.
These precautions are especially
important for people at high risk
for complications from WNV. This
includes individuals over 50, preg-
nant women, transplant patients,
and people who have diabetes,
high blood pressure or a history of
alcohol abuse.
Since its first human WNV case
in 2002, South Dakota has re-
ported more than 2,000 cases, in-
cluding 29 deaths. South Dakota
cases have occurred as early as
June but peak transmission is July
through early September.
Learn more about preventing
WNV at the department’s website,
westnile.sd.gov, or the SDSU Ex-
tension site, www.sdstate.edu
