Livestock handling practices discussed Wall Main Street ribbon cutting
have you behind and will turn to see you,” he said. A producer needs to communicate to the animal’s eye. He stressed that you didn’t want to look the animal in the eye, but look at them to get their attention. Noffsinger said four things come into play in working with animals – the person’s body position, their distance from an animal, the angle and direction the person moves and the speed at which the person moves. Animals generally should be worked at a 45 degree angle, this is so they can see the person with one eye while watching the other side with the opposite eye. “If they watch you with both eyes, they mistrust you,” he said. The deeper the angle, the more pressure. Regulating speed is done with parallel motion. “It may take 10 feet or it may take a half mile,” he said. “Cattle have poor depth perception. Don’t stand still, move slightly so they can see you,” said Noffsinger. Moving slightly, he said, is to move weight back and forth on the feet. “A full step is too much.” Noffsinger noted that if you want an animal to move forward, rub from the point of the shoulders down the back. To move it backwards, start at the rump and rub forward. He said to also watch a momma cow get up her newborn calf. The momma cow will encourage the newborn calf to get up by licking from back to front. Then when the calf is raising up, she licks from the front to back. When the growth of the animal is interrupted, such as at weaning time, it can take weeks for that animal to start performing again. A producer needs to start sensitizing the calf as soon as it is born to do what we want. “It’s all mentality,” he said. Start training them at birth – train them for change of address, first at birth, next is going out to pasture, and finally weaning. Noffsinger spoke of how one producer, prior to branding and weaning, would separate the pairs the first night, reunite them the next morning, separate them again the second night, and then brand or wean the third morning. He noted the calves adjusted to the separation much easier. Local producer Pat Guptill has used Noffsinger’s approach successfully in his operation. The ag day attendees traveled to where Guptill had heifers pastured on a high intensity grazing rotation. With high intensity grazing, the animals are kept in a smaller pasture and moved on a regular schedule. The acreage varies each year on pasture conditions and number of animals. Guptill said the old way required a half day of labor, with humans and animals both being tired at the end. This way, he said, he and one other person can have the animals moved and a new fence up within 30 minutes. The time is shortened considerably if the fence doesn’t have to be moved. Guptill typically moves the cattle at about the same time of day. The day of the demonstration the cows were waiting quietly in the corner. Guptill had the electric fence open, the cattle moved and the electric fence back up in five to 10 minutes. The cattle moved quietly through the hole and immediately with no urging from Guptill. Noffsinger observed that the cows went right to grazing and were grazing with who they wanted to graze with; without upsetting anything at all. Guptill noted that it takes about three days to train the cattle, although some take a little longer to trust him. Noffsinger said he learned from Bud Williams, Independence, Kan., one of the first to teach low stress livestock handling techniques. He said Williams learned from watching kelpie and border collies. “What he teaches us is what is deep inside a border collie or kelpie.” He also earns the animal’s trust. Noffsinger suggested producers check out Internet websites www.stockmanship.com (Williams’ website); www.cattlexpressions. com; and beefcattleinstitute.org. Videos of Noffsinger’s technique can also be found on You Tube.

by Nancy Haigh Tradition – doing what has always been done, but is it the right way? Are new practices a better approach? In many instances, one generation has taught the next generation that working livestock means pushing, yelling and prodding the animals. Veterinarian Dr. Tom Noffsinger’s approach is vastly different with results that are paying off tremendously. Noffsinger said experience through his vet practice and working with feedlots he noticed how feedlots with similar cattle yielded different results. The differences were in efficiency and health; with the weather conditions, implants and health being the same. He said the difference was in the people who handled the cattle. Noffsinger said people can be good for cattle or people can be bad. How people treat the cattle has an impact on the animals. Noffsinger noted that livestock will tell a person what they want through body motions. It is learning that communication that Noffsinger focused on at the TriCounty Ag Day at the South Dakota State University Cottonwood Range and Livestock Research Station west of Philip, June 8. Noffsinger stressed that a person should not get behind the herd and push. “It is easier to pull than push,” he said. He said animals will ask for guidance, some more so than others, until they all learn to trust the person. Noffsinger said as a person walks into a herd one animal or more will focus on the person. He said to use that animal to lead the rest. “If the front animal is stopped, no use pushing from the back.” Noffsinger touched on America’s perception of the cattle industry. “Inappropriate handling episodes occur when handlers don’t understand how to perform the tasks,” he said. “Why do people do these things? Because they haven’t been trained and are doing things they shouldn’t be doing in the first place. We’ve got to take care of this.” To correct this, Noffsinger demonstrated some handling aspects on video and using audience members. “If you can’t see the animal’s eye, you are in the wrong place. Cattle die to see you,” he said. Where they can see you best is the front, the worst, is straight behind. “The animal can’t stand to

Park Rangers and the Interior Volunteer Fire Department hike ~Courtesy Photos into the injured hiker.
Park Rangers received a 911 call from two European visitors at approximately 10:30 a.m. Thursday, June 7, reporting an injured hiker on the Notch Trail. Park Rangers and the Interior Volunteer Fire Department were first on scene after hiking in a couple of miles to find Dave Johnson a 57 year old man from Audubon, Pennsylvania who had fallen, sliding into a crack and was experiencing severe leg and back pain along with numerous cuts and scrapes. He stated that he had started hiking at 7:30 this morning and had been trapped and unable to get help until he was discovered. Multiple agencies responded to the incident including Kadoka and Philip Ambulance companies, Jackson County Sheriff ’s officers and the South Dakota Highway Patrol. After assessing both his injuries and the situation, it was determined that the safest and most appropriate method of rescue would be by helicopter, especially considering the difficulty of bringing a

Start scouting now for grasshoppers
South Dakota faces the possibility of destructive grasshopper outbreaks every year, and predicting those outbreaks before they happen can be challenging. Experts look at current weather conditions and survey data from previous years to predict what might happen this year. While a widespread outbreak is unlikely, the potential is definitely there for isolated problem areas across the state. Early scouting is the key to effectively controlling problem grasshoppers. Grasshoppers go through five nymphal stages before adulthood. They are most susceptible to treatments as nymphs. Once grasshoppers reach adulthood, they are much tougher to control. Since they begin laying eggs immediately, spraying too late will not break their life cycle. Grasshopper densities across South Dakota reached historic levels in the summer of 2010. Last year threatened to be one of the worst grasshopper years since the early 1930s, but Mother Nature intervened. Early warmth followed by a cool wet May and June helped keep the grasshoppers in check naturally. Newly hatched grasshoppers are very susceptible to cold, wet weather that increases the prevalence of bacteria and disease that can cause mortality. Although those weather patterns helped to limit early hatching species, late hatching species thrived with surplus vegetation, moderate temperatures, and a late frost. Perfect conditions late last summer will likely result in escalating grasshopper population numbers this summer. Reports have been received in the past two weeks of hatches starting in the southern tier of South Dakota counties and progressing north. If the hatch progresses at a normal pace, midJune will be the perfect time for control activities. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture, USDA Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service, and SDSU Extension Service will be collaborating to keep the public informed about grasshopper conditions and provide producers with tailored information on grasshopper treatment options. Agriculture is South Dakota's No. 1 industry, generating nearly $21 billion in annual economic activity and employing more than 80,000 South Dakotans. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture's mission is to promote, protect, preserve and improve this industry for today and tomorrow.

Commission on child support to hold hearings on proposed guideline changes
The governor’s Commission on Child Support will conduct public hearings this summer to gather input on potential changes to South Dakota’s child-support guidelines and related statutes. The commission is conducting its required four-year review of South Dakota’s child-support guidelines and is comprised of representatives of custodial and noncustodial parents, family law attorneys, the Judiciary, Legislature, and Department of Social Services.

The commission will submit its report and recommendations to Gov. Dennis Daugaard by Dec. 31, 2012, to be considered during the 2013 legislative session. Public hearings will be held on Monday, July 2, 2012, from 6 – 8 p.m. MDT in the Lincoln Room at the Ramkota Hotel, 2111 N.

Written comments or suggestions may also be submitted for consideration by the full commission by mailing them to the Department of Social Services, Attn: Child Support Commission, 700 Governors Drive, Pierre, SD 57501-2291 or by e-mailing DCS @state.sd.us. The commission’s final report will be available on the DSS website: http://dss.sd.gov/
Four iron crosses at the Saint Wenceslas Graveyard in Tabor. Traditionally, a graveyard is a burial ground by a church. A cemetery is a separate piece of land that is a burial ground. ~Photos by South Dakota State Historical Society – Archives
To walk through a cemetery is to walk through history. “A gravestone is something tangible to remember that person by. When I drive by a cemetery, the first thing I look at is the older section. I’m curious about the style and design of the gravestones and the names on the gravestones,” said Virginia Hanson, archivist at the State Archives of the South Dakota State Historical Society, located in the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre. She often lectures about genealogy and the meaning of gravestones. Wood was a common material used to mark graves from the 1840s to about 1910 in South Dakota. “People often ask me why we have so many unmarked burial sites. A reason is the markers possibly were made of wood. Wood only lasts so long,” Hanson said. Names cut in wood became less visible as the wood weathered. Some wooden markers were consumed in prairie fires. Large rocks were also used to mark the location of graves. Some of the earliest gravestones in South Dakota were made of local stone, with the name of the deceased and year of death carved by hand into the stone. Symbols were added if the family could afford it. “Carvers charged by the letter, so if there was a lot of carving in the gravestone, that was quite an investment,” Hanson said. Many of the symbols carved on a gravestone reflected the nationality of the deceased. A Celtic cross might symbolize someone who came from Ireland or Scotland, and an iron cross might denote the German-Russian peoples. Some of the common carvings on tombstones in South Dakota were flowers, gates, butterflies and broken rings. Flowers symbolized condolences, grief or sorrow, while closed roses meant brevity of earthly existence. A gate symbolized the open gateway from earth to heaven. A broken ring meant the family circle was severed. A lamb was often seen on the gravestones of those under 16 and meant innocence or youth. An inverted torch meant sudden death
The gravestone with a lamb on it was taken at the Gettysburg City Cemetery.
or the sudden loss of an adult life. Symbols often reflected membership in an organization or military service. A Sears and Roebuck Catalog from about 1912 offered different tombstones and styles that people could order. “So if you see several stones with the same pattern, there is a good chance they were ordered through the local market,” Hanson said. The meaning of gravestone carvings has changed over the years. Wheat or corn stalks once symbolized ripe old age, but now it can mean the deceased was a farmer, Hanson said. “Since 1950, with modern etching, you see about anything as far as tombstone markings -- rodeo scenes, airplanes, farm machinery, or a portrait of a person,” Hanson said. Motion sensors make it possible for a recording to turn on when people walk by the gravestone and light sensitive lamps turn on when the sun sets. “Back 100 years ago you wouldn’t think of putting a lamp at a grave, but now, a light at the gravesite is a modern symbol of remembering the spirit of that person,” Hanson said.

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY
with Dr. James Dobson
Dr. Dobson Answers your Questions
QUeSTioN: I'm a father of two small children and my wife is a stay-at-home mom. Some men may not realize how difficult it is to spend your entire day attending to the needs of little kids, but I'm keenly aware of the strains and stresses associated with my wife's occupation. What can I do to help shoulder the load? ANSWeR: You deserve some special recognition for raising such a thoughtful question. As you're apparently aware, some hardworking husbands seem to be laboring under the delusion that rearing children at home doesn't take much effort. If they could spend a day in their wives' shoes, they'd find out how seriously mistaken they are. Happily, you don't fall into that category. You're sensitive enough not only to see that your wife needs help but to ask what you can do to provide it. We're pleased to be able to offer you a few suggestions. First, when you arrive home after your long, tiring day, remember that your wife has had an equally long and tiring day. There are two things she needs most at this point: 1) adult conversation, including expressions of appreciation for what she has been doing; and 2) an adult pair of hands to pitch in, take charge of one or more children, wrangle dirty diapers or other debris or begin any other activity that will lighten her load. Second, don't expect to be taken care of like another child. Pick up your own clothes and toys. Third, don't expect much sexual response if your wife is exhausted and you haven't done much to help. Remember that sex begins in the kitchen — with meaningful conversation, compliments, acts of kindness and some elbow grease applied to the tasks at hand. Fourth, get actively involved in or even take over the process of getting your kids ready for bed. As they get older, you will hear thoughts and questions at bedtime that won't be expressed at any other time of the day. Be ready to listen and be amazed. Fifth, maintain the habit of a regular date night — a meal (fancy or otherwise), a concert, a walk, whatever your imagination and budget can manage — in which the focus is conversation and companionship. Make it a point to keep your wife current on your day's activities and to find out about hers. Call her during the day to touch base, offer an encouraging word or simply say, "I love you." Flowers and gifts for no particular reason speak volumes. Sixth, if your hours at work seem to be getting longer, stop and take an honest look at your attitude. Are you listening to the siren song that says your career is more fulfilling than your life at home? Is your commitment to your job turning your wife into a single parent? If so, find some practical ways to change directions — fast. Finally, see if you can manage to take her away for a romantic weekend, or even dinner and an overnight stay at a pleasant location where her daily responsibilities are temporarily suspended. With planning and creativity, this need not be expensive. Another worthwhile activity is a marriageenrichment weekend such as a FamilyLife conference, which can serve as a therapeutic time-out and an opportunity to renew and deepen your commitment to one another. QUeSTioN: I'm anxious to be a mother, but my husband doesn't want to have children yet. My biological clock is ticking away, and

the tension between us is growing, but he says he isn't ready to take the step into parenthood. How can we resolve this conflict? ANSWeR: There must be some reason your husband doesn't feel ready to start a family yet. The best thing you can do at this point is find a way to get to the heart of those feelings. It's pointless to think of moving forward until the two of you can arrive at some kind of a mutual understanding. This will have to be handled carefully and sensitively. Some men can feel a bit intimidated by a sit-down, face-to-face confrontation. If your husband is like that, you might suggest that the two of you spend a day engaging in some kind of shared activity that he enjoys, like fishing or hiking. Then, when you're both relaxed and having a good time, tell him you've got something on your mind and ask him if he wouldn't mind talking about it. A common mistake in marriage is trying to be the person we perceive our spouse wants us to be instead of being ourselves. So be straightforward and honest. Remember you married your husband because there was a "spark" of some kind between the two of you: an emotional, spiritual, and social connection. When there is a negative shift in the relationship, the first thing to do is to attempt to restore and preserve that connection. When the time seems right, start by saying, "I really want to understand your feelings about starting a family." Based on what you've said about him, we assume he'll probably respond, "I don't want to start a family yet." It's at this point that you'll need to steel yourself to resist the temptation to whine, lecture or interrogate. Adopt a listening attitude and let him say whatever he needs to say. Don't interrupt or take the discussion down any rabbit-trails. When he's finished, simply start over and, like a "broken record," reiterate your original concern: "I really need to talk about this." If he puts you off again, follow the same procedure. Don't criticize him or cut him off. Just adopt the "broken record" approach and keep verbalizing your own feelings in a calm and respectful tone of voice. Ask him to give the matter some thought. If this doesn't help you get to the heart of the matter, it would be a good idea to consider the option of short-term marriage counseling. Focus on the Family's Counseling Department can supply you with a list of referrals to qualified marriage-and-family professionals in your area. You can reach our counselors Monday through Friday between 6:00 a.m. and 8:00 p.m. Mountain time at 855-771-HELP (4357). It might also be advisable for both you and your husband to seek out the help and guidance of older and wiser mentors within the spiritual community of your local church.

Sylvia (Knutson) Schultz__________________________
Philip. In 1937, her husband Bill was killed in an airplane accident. Sylvia continued to live in Philip, and raise her two children, as well as work with the WPA in the courthouse making men’s shirts. She also cooked at the Winchester Hotel. In 1943, she started working for the Farm Loan Association, measuring maps and aerial photos. Later that year, she was offered a position in Pierre. Sylvia and the kids moved to Pierre where they lived on the top floor of the Locke Hotel. While in Pierre, she met a service man named Matthew Nolz, and were married in 1947. Sylvia worked for the superintendent of schools and later worked in the office of the hotel. They then moved to Ohio for a short time after her children were out of high school. They moved back to Pierre where they managed both the Locke and St. Charles hotels. Her husband Matt died on January 31, 1965. After Matt’s death, Sylvia moved to California for five years before returning to Pierre. She took a job at the city auditor’s office as a bookkeeper and office manager at State Publishing Company. It was there that she met Philip Schultz. They were later married on November 8, 1980. They made their home in Pierre, and Sylvia continued to work for the publishing company. In March of 1983, Philip died of cancer. Sylvia continued to live in Pierre, and in 1986, retired from the publishing company.

Richard Harlan Sims____________________________
Born in the small town of Wester, Nebraska, October 31, 1930, our sweet, sensitive father died of a broken heart March 25, 2012 in Mercer Island, Wa, 22 days after losing Phyllis, his wife of 61 years, his high school sweetheart and the love of his life. Richard graduated from the University of Nebraska. He taught Industrial Arts and Math for 10 years in Scottsbluff, Neb. and also was the basketball and tennis coach. He then had an opportunity to join the National Park Service and enjoyed a glorious career until his retirement. He was a Ranger at Scottsbluff Natl. Park in Virginia, then Superintendent of Oregon Caves Natl. Monument and Superintendent of Crater Lake Natl. Park in Oregon. After working in the NW Regional office in Seattle, his last assignment was as Superintendent of Klondike Gold Rush International Park in Skagway, Alaska which he was a little like living on the side of a volcano, “very pleasant in-between eruptions”. Our father was a reticent man and lead by example. He was kind, honest and hardworking. He loved nature and being outdoors. If you wanted to know what kind of tree you just walked by you only had to ask Dad. He was very talented with his hands and an excellent woodworker. At one point, every table and lamp in our home was made by Dad. Richard loved music and singing and had a beautiful voice. We kids were very lucky to grow up hearing our dad sing Moon River, Night and Day and Danny Boy, just to name a few. Dad also enjoyed sports and was an excellent athlete. He was a three sport letterman and winner of many track and field medals in high school. He loved watching the Seattle Mariners and never missed a game. Richard and Phyllis leave behind three children: Kimberly Sims (Neil) of Seattle, Valerie Hauter (John) of Bellingham, and Scott Sims (Anne) of Mercer Island. They had five grandchildren: Matthew and Rachael Sims, Collier and Paige Hauter, and Natalie Quek. We loved Dad and Mom dearly and miss them beyond belief.
Sylvia (Knutson) Schultz, age 99, of Brookings, S.D., formerly of Philip and Pierre, died Saturday, June 9, 2012, at the Brookview Manor in Brookings. Sylvia Gladys Knutson was born December 22, 1912, in rural Haakon County, the daughter of Anton and Olga M. (Tungland) Knutson. She grew up in Haakon County and received her education in that area. She attended Alfalfa Valley Rural School in the seventh and eighth grade, which her father donated the land for the school. She then attended Philip High School where she sang in the Glee Club, and participated in basketball and softball. She worked for Noble Garage and Cafe in Nowlin for a short time after high school. It was then that she met William Ross “Bill” Mostert, an accordion player, at a square dance. They were later married in 1933 in Philip, and to this union were born two children, Pauline “Punky” Mae, and Bob Ross. They made their home in

CHRISTIAN CONDuCT
by Cornelius R. Stam A man's conduct, in Scripture, is called his "walk"! The Bible has much to say about how we walk, morally and spiritually. Many "walk after their own lusts" (II Pet. 3:3) and "walk in darkness" (John 12:35). Some even "walk in craftiness" (II Cor. 4:2) trying to lead others astray. Indeed, even Christian believers are sometimes careless about their "walk" and so cause others to stumble. Every true child of God should be very careful about his walk, or conduct. In Eph. 2:8-10 we read that while believers are not saved by good works, they are saved "unto good works." God's grace is the root of our salvation, and good works are the fruit. Sincere believers in Christ are counted as one with Him, and it is expected of us that "as Christ was raised up from the dead" after having died for our sins, "even so we also should walk in newness of life" (Rom. 6:4). Christians are exhorted in the Bible to "walk worthy of the Lord, unto all pleasing" (Col. 1:10), to "walk in the spirit" that they might not "fulfill the lust of the flesh" (Gal. 5:16). They are exhorted to "walk worthy of [their] calling" (Eph. 4:1), to "walk in the light" (I John 1:7) and to "walk as children of the light" (Eph. 5:8). They are exhorted to "walk circumspectly, not as fools, but as wise" (Eph. 5:15), to "walk honestly" (Rom. 13:13), to "walk in love" (Eph. 5:2) and to "walk by faith, not by sight" (II Cor. 5:7). Much more is said about the believer's walk in the Bible, but never are we told that it is our "walk," or conduct, that makes us acceptable for salvation. Our failing, stumbling ways could never earn salvation for us. On the contrary we are exhorted to walk pleasing to the Lord out of sheer gratitude to Him.
Wilma E. Benson, 88, of Rapid City and formerly of New Underwood, passed away on Monday, June 4, 2012 at a local nursing home. Wilma was born April 4, 1924 on her Dad’s homestead located on the Belle Fourche River. She attended Gumbo Lily School which

U.S. Forest Service readies for wildfire suppression
The U.S. Forest Service is taking actions to maintain its aerial firefighting capability after a series of events that have significantly reduced the number of airtankers available for wildfire suppression over the last year, including an accident that tragically resulted in the deaths of two Neptune Aviation Services, Inc. pilots. “The pilots of Tanker 11 lost their lives protecting public safety and natural resources,” said Tom Harbour, Director of Fire and Aviation Management for the U.S. Forest Service. “As the entire fire and aviation community grieves their loss, we must ensure that we maintain our capability to fulfill our responsibilities to be prepared to respond vigorously to wildfires threatening people, communities, infrastructure, and natural and cultural resources.” The U.S. Forest Service currently has nine operational large airtankers on exclusive use contracts. The U.S. Forest Service has arranged for a total of four additional airtankers to become available immediately for wildfire suppression. Two are CV-580s, one of which is available through an agreement with the state of Alaska and one of which is available through an agreement with the Canadian Interagency Fire Centre. These airtankers will be available for wildfire suppression nationwide. The other two airtankers are CAL FIRE S-2Ts, which will be staffed and available in California through an agreement offered by the state and funded by the U.S. Forest Service. “The loss of the two aerial firefighters has reverberated through the fire service community and our thoughts are certainly with their families and coworkers as they grieve,” said Chief Ken Pimlott, Director of CAL FIRE. “In the wake of this tragedy, we reached out to our federal partners to offer this agreement which staffs two CAL FIRE airtankers in California a month earlier than we would normally staff them based on the current wildfire threat.” The U.S. Forest Service is also arranging for five heavy (Type 1) helicopters to become available for wildfire suppression nationwide earlier than scheduled. The U.S. Forest Service believes that the additions of the airtankers and heavy helicopters will enable the agency to respond effectively to current and predicted fire activity. If needed, the U.S. Forest Service can also mobilize eight military C130s equipped with Modular AirFirefighting Systems borne (MAFFS) to serve as large airtankers as well as a DC-10 very large airtanker. Airtankers play an important role in wildfire suppression, particularly during the early stages known as “initial attack,” by dropping retardant that reduces the intensity and rate of spread of wildfires, enabling firefighters on the ground to safely construct fireline.

The Looking Glass of Time
80 years ago… The marriage of Gale Dartt to Miss Edna Leman took place at the Presbyterian Manse, Wednesday afternoon, June 1. The ceremony was conducted by Rev. Rew Walz with Mr. Joe Pauli and Mrs. Rew Walz attending the bridal couple. The groom, Gale Dartt, is a son of Mr. and Mrs. Ed Dartt who live north of Wall. Gale is a graduate of the Wall High School and attended University of Vermillion where he obtained a teaching certificate and for the past year taught the School near his place. The bride is a native of the Hill, her parents reside at Nemo. BiRTH: Born to Mrs. and Mrs. Ira Strandell, a ten pound boy, June 6. A twister Tuesday night did a great deal of damage to property northwest of Wall. Many noted the dark funnel shaped cloud as it traveled along about four Tuesday afternoon. Another tornado at the same time did considerable damage to Rapid Valley. On the old Culler place north of Wall where Haskell’s live, practically all of the buildings were demolished. One of the largest barns in the country on one of the Townview Farms where Logan’s are living was blown down. Damage was also reported to buildings on Fred Woltzen’s place, Tom Parkin’s, Loda Sawvell’s and D. Paulson’s. There was no train service Tuesday night due to a washout of the new fill near Dakota City. Owanka reported a four inch rain. Some hail followed the wind and some damage to crops has been reported. 70 years ago… Rains are still falling with a day or two of sunshine but seldom enough to allow farmers time to get much done in the fields. Last Wednesday night, Wall received a tally of 1 3/4 inches. This heavy downfall continued eastward causing the Cottonwood Creek and the Badland Creek to seriously attack the C & NW tracks. Train service to Wall was entirely eliminated until Saturday night while train crews reinforced their right-ofways. One span of the several hundred foot bridge across the White River southwest of Interior went out Thursday and another bridge south of Conata also washed away. The Cheyenne River at Creston has cut into its bank about 200 feet back for a distance of about half a mile, washing out the highway. Merle Crown had the misfortune of having two of his toes crushed when a heavy piece of iron fell from a truck that he was fixing at the Oliver Machine shop in Rapid City, last Wednesday, the toes had to be amputated. He was able to be released from the hospital, Monday. 60 years ago… The Town of Wall has been busy the past two weeks repairing and replacing water mains. A thousand feet of two inch mains were replaced with standard four inch mains along by the Catholic Church. A new line from this point will be extended to the Dowding Place. Also in North Wall, mains are planned to be extended to the County Highway shops. In closing the valves at the Methodist Church corner, commissioner Harold Welsh, ran into difficulty. A piece of 2x4 about six inches long was wedged under the valve. How this block of wood got into the water main is still anybody’s guess. Merle Crown won Sunday’s ball game without lifting his bat from his shoulder. Bases loaded, score tied, last of the tenth, and four straight balls. This win against Belvidere coupled with a loss by Kadoka, places the Wall-Quinn ball club at the top of the Badlands League with 1,000 percentage points. 50 years ago… The Wall school board election will be held Tuesday, June 19, at the School house. The only contest is for the five year term between two candidates, Bryce Kennedy, the present board member, and O. S. Soma. Roy Milliken is unopposed for the four year term. The three members whose terms do not expire this year are G. W. Shelton, Howard Johnson and Reynold Paulsen. Rev. John Jacoway has been asto the Wall-Wasta signed Methodist Church at the Annual Conference held last week in Huron. Joe Crawford is still hobbling from an accidental .22 pistol wound in the thigh of his leg. Dr. Hvam removed the bullet which had penetrated through a leather holster and nearly through the flesh part of his thigh. 40 years ago… Mr. and Mrs. Lynn Williams of Wall, announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Carla Lynn to Mark A. Brucklacher, son of Reverend and Mrs. Alvin Brucklacher of Philip. A July 14 wedding is being planned. The annual school district election for Wall Dist. 58, will be held Tuesday, June 20. It was a year ago that voters favored a sevenman board, but no special election or appointments were made to increase the board from five to seven. So following this election, the Wall School District will have a seven member board. A re-organization meeting has been scheduled for Wednesday evening, July 5. There is only one contest for Tuesday’s election, Dean Patterson and Robert Hays are candidates for the five year term. Only one candidate has filed for the other two positions, Joan Renner for the four year term, and Milton Trask for the three year term. BiRTH: Born to Mr. and Mrs. Robert Hays, a son, Jerry Jerome, nine pounds, four ounces, June 9, at the Philip hospital. “You just can’t believe it” is the expression heard often since the tragic flood in Rapid City and this really describes the feeling that people have. “You just can’t believe it” is the statement that was repeated many times in a conservation with Norman Klingbile who spent 24 continuous hours on police patrol in Rapid City. In Wall, Friday evening, with little or no reason to believe that a storm was raging in the central Hills, the TV carried a written message of heavy rains and dangerous flooding conditions in Spearfish Canyon, the Boulder Canyon, and finally a four foot wall of water coming down Rapid City Creek. Wall received no rain until well after midnight.
30 years ago… Wall has a unique opportunity this week. This opportunity is one of studying theatre with a professional theatre company interested in telling stories of area people. Because Wall is a small town, its experiences with theatre may not be as frequent as people in larger towns and cities enjoy. That is why all ages cannot afford to miss what the Dakota Theatre Caravan can teach them this week. The Caravan is not only conducting a series of acting workshops, but it is also personalizing its visit here by holding a “Wall Musical Review”, an oral and musical history of Wall, including stories of and by local people. Everyone in Wall knows of the wealth of history that the people in the area posses — The Wall Musical Review will bring this history to the stage. Mr. and Mrs. John Paulsen celebrated their 50th anniversary with an open house on Sunday in the Methodist Church basement. Their son John and family from Sioux Falls, hosted the party. Mr. and Mrs. Roy White and Lucile Halverson, sisters of Myrtle Paulsen, and Edna Barnes and Gladys Sether, sisters of John, were out-of-town guests along with many nieces and nephews and hosts of friends and neighbors who helped make the anniversary a very happy occasion. A group of young people from the Wall School left last Wednesday on a tour of Europe where they will join chorus groups and put on some concerts. Those from Wall are Scott Patterson, Jim Sautter, James Babcock, Kevin Foster, Mike Carlbom, Rhonda Crawford, Rhonda Lurz, DeAnna Shearer, Jody Sawvell, Sherri Knutson, Lori Hays, Lois Stverak, Connie Heinrichs, and chaperones Mark and Carla Brucklacher. They landed at Amsterdam, Holland and will visit Rotterdam, Arnhem, Cologne, Heidelberg, Strassburg, Nancy, Paris, Calais, Dover, London, Zeebruggle, Brussels and Antwerp. They are due home June 26. The Outlaws captured first place at the Wall Drive Inn Softball Tournament held last Saturday and Sunday at the softball field. The Outlaws played the Pennington County Courant-Eagles in the championship game Sunday, defeating them 21-4. Leading scorers for the Outlaws were Tim Huether, Terry Allred, Merlin Doyle and Keith Thompson, each with three runs. Merlin Doyle was the winning pitcher. Fifteen teams participated in the tournament, including the seven men’s teams from Wall as well as teams from Rapid City, Philip, Milesville and the Black Hills. The top four finishers were the Outlaws (1), Courant-Eagles (2), Mud Hogs, Milesville (3), and Skier Construction, Hill City (4). 20 years ago… Lynn and Shaun McKay recently earned their Fourth Degree Blackbelts after completing an application process and meeting testing requirement. Lynn and Shaun have been studying Ju-Jitsu since 1986 and teaching the Wall JuJitsu class from 1989 to the present. Lynn is the only woman in South Dakota in the Jukite JuJitsu style to have earned a Fourth Degree Blackbelt. Lindsey Renner, a recent 2002 graduate of Wall High School, recently took part in the March 1623 2002 Presidential Classroom Scholar’s Program in Washington, D.C. BiRTH: Born to Joel and Stephanie Deering, Wasta, a son, John Wayne, on April 2, 2002. Lit-
tle John weighed in at 8 lbs. 14 oz. and measured 20 inches long. He joined big sisters Cheyenne and Autumn at home.

Great-grandparents are Deloris Titus, Maryland, Ralph and Bonnie Rodbell, Florida, Maude Soderquist, Wasta and great-great grandmother Sophie Phillips, Florida. Golfing awards for the 2002 season: Most Improved Players, Matthew Anderson and Malori Johnson; Most Valuable Players, Talon Peters and Lindsey Renner. 10 years ago… On June 4, the Teener baseball team came against the Bennett Co. team in Wall, losing 13-7 in the first game and in the second game, the Wall Teeners won 7-6. The Wall Midget “A” youth baseball team traveled to Midland, June 5th and opened the season with a 10-4 win. The Wall Midget “B” baseball team traveled to Midland June 5th to open the 1992 season. The game was the first baseball game that many of these youngsters had ever played. Although they came out on the losing side of an eight to two

Giving Honest and Sincere Appreciation
Taking the time and energy to give honest and sincere appreciation is a vital thing for us to do. So often though we do not take the time like we could and should. If we do not get a lot of encouragement ourselves we find it hard to encourage others. I practice paying compliments on most everyone I come into contact with. I like to be an encourager. It is like good therapy for me. Below you will find the system that I use. examine Look and watch for what people are doing right and well. This is a good strategy to practice on a daily basis. Look deep into their character. expose Bring it out in the open, tell it directly to them. emotion Tell them how it makes you feel, happy, joy, share an emotion. expectation Share with them what the benefits to them will be if they keep up the behavior. endear Maintain eye contact with them, while your paying your compliment. Capture people doing things right and well. Surprise these people with words of encouragement. You will astonish them and they will not know how to handle such positive words. That is the fun part of this activity.

FINANCIAL FOCUS
DoN'T FALL ViCTiM To iNVeSTMeNT "BiASeS" Richard Wahlstrom www.edwardjones.com If you’re like most people, you go through many complex thoughts and emotions when choosing investments. In fact, a field of study called “behavioral finance” is devoted to understanding why people make their investment decisions. As part of their work, behavioral finance researchers examine “biases” that affect people’s investment selections. And as an individual investor, you, too, can benefit from understanding these biases — so that you can avoid them. Here are some of the key biases identified by behavioral finance experts: •Overconfidence — Overconfidence leads investors to believe they know the “right times” to buy and sell investments. But if you’re constantly buying and selling in the belief that you are correctly “timing” the market, you maybe wrong many times, and you may incur more investment fees, expenses and taxes than if you simply bought quality investments and held them for the long term. •Representativeness — If you make decisions based on preconceived ideas or stereotypes, you may be suffering from a bias called “representativeness.” For example, if you see that investments from a particular sector, such as energy, have performed particularly well in one year, you might think these types of vehicles will do just as well the next year, so you load up on them. Yet every sector will go through ups and downs, so one year’s performance cannot necessarily predict the next year's performance. Instead of chasing “hot” investments, try to build a balanced portfolio that reflects your individual goals, risk tolerance and time horizon. •Anchoring — Similar to representativeness, an anchoring bias occurs when investors place too much emphasis on past performance. If you own shares of XYZ stock, for instance, and the stock price hit $60 per share, you might assume XYZ will always sell for at least $60 a share. But if XYZ drops to $30 per share — perhaps as a result of a broad-based market decline — you might think it’s now “undervalued,” leading you to “snap up” even more shares. However, XYX shares could also fall due to a change in its fundamentals, such as a shake-up in the company’s management or a decline in the competitiveness of its products. As an informed investor, you need to work with your finan-

Alex “Bod” Livermont____________________________
Alex "Bod" Livermont was born March 26, 1946, in Pine Ridge, the son of Oliver and Emma M. (Wiedman) Livermont. He was raised on the ranch southeast of Kadoka on the Alec Livermont Ranch. He attended school in Kadoka. After his schooling, Bob worked at various places around Kadoka, including Burns Bros. Truck Stop for several years. Bod was a very reserved and shy man, but once he knew you, he had a wonderful sense of humor. He enjoyed rock hunting, fishing, house painting, and exploring with his metal detector. Bod also enjoyed family dinners in Kadoka. Survivors include two brothers, LeRoy “Boots” Livermont of Kadoka and Michael Livermont and Amelia of Belvidere; five sisters, Charleen Grass of Norris, Sharon Bowes and her husband, Delmar, of Rapid City, Linda “Wink” Stoddard and her husband, Joe, of Norris, Mary Gropper and her husband, Dick, of Long Valley, and Janie Whidby of Rapid City; several nieces and nephews; and a host of other relatives and friends. Bod was preceded in death by his parents; a brother-in-law, Wayne Whidby; and a niece, Lori Stoddard. Memorial services will be held 2:00 p.m. Saturday, June 16, at the Presbyterian Church in Kadoka, with Pastor Gus Craven officiating. Interment will be at the Kadoka Cemetery. A memorial has been established. Arrangements are with the Rush Funeral Chapel of Kadoka. His online guestbook is available at www.rushfuneralhome.com
cial advisor to determine the causes of an investment’s decline and any actions you may need to take in response. •Confirmation — If you are subject to confirmation bias, you may look for information that supports your reasons for choosing a particular investment. This type of bias can lead to faulty decision making, because you’ll end up with onesided information. In other words, you may latch onto all the positive reasons for investing in something — such as a “hot stock” — but you may overlook the “red flags” that would cause you to think twice if you were being totally objective. To fight back against confirmation bias, take your time before making any investment decision — a quality investment will almost always be just as good a choice tomorrow as it is today. Being aware of these investment biases can help you make better decisions — and over a period of many years, these decisions can make a difference as you work toward achieving your financial objectives.
Alex “Bod” Livermont, age 66 of Kadoka, S.D., died Tuesday, June 5, 2012, at his home in Kadoka.
S.D. Sportsmen against hunger donate meals to those in need
At its recent annual meeting in Custer State Park, the South Sportsmen Against Dakota Hunger (SAH) Board of Directors reported that hunters donated 78,735 pounds of game meat to needy individuals and families across the state last year. Although the total pounds of donated meat dropped 25 percent in 2011, donations in 2010 were record large. “A reduction of donations in 2011 was not a surprise to us because deer and antelope populations were reduced during severe winters the past few years,” noted Jeff Olson, President of SAH. “It is a double-edged sword for us. One goal of the program is to reduce the number of deer in areas where landowners are having problems, and that part is working well. What we do not like to see is the number of pounds to the needy drop, as demand and need for this meat is high.” One of the highlights from 2011 was the implementation of a new goose donation program. SAH worked with the South Dakota Department of Game, Fish and Parks and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to allow hunters to donate geese harvested in the August Management Take. SAH would like to expand donations from other waterfowl seasons and plans to begin discussions with management agencies this summer. “Those who benefited from the donated meat would like to send a big ‘Thank You’ to all the donors and volunteers for yet another great year for the program,” Olson said. “Many people contributed to the continuing success of SAH this past year, including sportsmen who donated game animals, game processors who worked with us to process the animals, and food pantries that accepted and distributed the donated meat.” Olson also thanks hunters, private donors and SAH volunteers for their generosity and help in making the program a big success.
