Badlands Area Chamber meeting

Exploring strategies for enhanc-
ing the regional economy was the
topic for the Badlands/Bad River
Region’s Set Economies Together
sixth module meeting.
Kari O’Neill, community devel-
opment field specialist reflected on
the previous session before the
group began working on identify-
ing the ecominc leaks in the region
and exploring basic avenues for
strenghtening the four clusters
that relate back to the vision cen-
ter of tourism, telecommunication,
agri-business and metal fabrica-
O’Neill discussed the leaky
bucket theory of the regional econ-
omy and how it can be plugged by
having a regional supplier meet
the regional demands of the area.
In other words how can we keep
the opportunites for growing new
enterprises locally to fill the gaps
of goods and services purchased
from outside the regions.
At this time the attendee’s were
split into smaller groups and each
group discussed how the four iden-
tified vision clusters can be ex-
panded into potential growth op-
portunites for new businesses. Po-
tential businesses and creating re-
gional support so they can survive
and thrive was highlighted by each
O’Neill concluded her portion of
the meeting by saying, “you need
to think about the strateiges that
are used in the region and use
those assets in your area.”
Peggy Schlechter led the group
in the second session of the meet-
C.A.R.E. which stands for Cre-
ation, Attraction, Retention and
Expansion was reviewed by
The creation provides regional
support; attraction seeks to reduce
leakages by recruiting into re-
gional firms that can supply miss-
ing goods or services that support
the clusters; retention and expan-
sion support existing businesses
within a cluster so that they can
survive and thrive another avenue
for stopping or preventing cluster
When you connect competitive
advantages of demand condition,
firm strategy, structure, rivalry,
faction conditions and related sup-
porting indurstries to C.A.R.E.,
you create, attract and have reten-
tion and expansion.
The group was then asked to
consider other potential strategies
that could be successful in the re-
Final reflections were held on
what topics did they find most
helpful and what was not confus-
The seventh SET module will be
presented in Interior on July 15 at
5:30 p.m.
The group will examine regional
assets, explore the region’s seven
capitals, take an honest look at po-
tential barriers and take steps to
link assets to their potential re-
gional goals.

brought up the reasoning for a new
math class called Transitional
Math. Samra Trask who is part of
the high school and college teach-
ers who are in the planning stages
of developing the class said, “the
state decided there is a need to
keep high school seniors in math to
keep their algebra skills up for col-
lege math classes. Superintendent
Dennis Rieckman will revisit the
issue with the board once they find
out more about the class. The
board approved a motion to apply
for a DOE waiver for the class.

button was pushed. Rieckman will

Park rangers received a 911 call
at approximately 6:35 p.m. on Fri-
day, June 14, reporting that a four-
teen year old girl had suffered a
rattlesnake bite at the junction of
Saddle Pass and Castle Trails.
Park rangers, Interior Volunteer
Fire Department, and Rapid City
Fire Department responded to the
When rangers arrived on scene,
they found that another park visi-
tor, who was a qualified emergency
medical technician (EMT) and first
responder, had carried the girl
down the Saddle Pass Trail toward
the parking lot.
The closest anti-venom treat-
ment was available at Philip Hos-
pital, so the patient was trans-
ported there by Kadoka Ambu-
lance Service. Life flight was on
stand-by, but not needed.
Visitors are reminded to be cau-
tious of the venomous prairie rat-
tlesnake when exploring Badlands
National Park.
Always wear sturdy boots and
long pants. The best treatment for
snake bites is to seek immediate
medical attention.
The patient received anti-venom
treatment at the hospital and is
expected to be released soon.

According to Sara Rabern, pub-
lic information officer with the At-
torney General’s office, there is no
foul play expected. A full autopsy
is being conducted by the state.
The body was first discovered by
a citizen. The incident was initially
investigated by personnel from the
Philip City Police, Haakon County
Sheriff ’s Department and the
South Dakota Department of
Criminal Investigation. The inves-
tigation is still ongoing.
“As far as the cause of death, we
don’t have a clue as of yet,” said
Philip Police Chief Kit Graham.
“We have a lot more questions
than we do answers, but that’s
common. It’s going to take time.”

Willuweit cowboy hat award
A cowboy hat is given each year to the top bronc rider of the
progressive round of the Philip Invitational Matched Bronc Ride.
In presenting this award, it was read, “This hat is given in mem-
ory of Jerry Willuweit who wore his cowboy hat with pride. Al-
though Jerry’s hat was often well worn and tipped to the side,
all who saw him knew he was a cowboy who loved to rope and
ride. The Willuweit family and Star of the West Hat Company are
honored to present this cowboy hat to J.J. Elshere for his ride
and for his desire to carry on the cowboy tradition.” Elshere,
Hereford, won the round riding Blind Date for 79 points and won
a certificate for a new cowboy hat. Shown are Elshere, left, and
Will Willuweit, Jerry’s son.

Do you know the two simple
steps of Hands-Only™ CPR? Then
you’re ready to help save a life. In
recognition of National CPR
Awareness Week the American
Heart Association is continuing
the national awareness campaign
and ongoing mobile tour teaching
Americans how to perform Hands-
Only CPR to the beat of the Bee
Gees’ hit “Stayin’ Alive.”
Sudden cardiac arrest is a lead-
ing cause of death with nearly
360,000 out-of-hospital cases oc-
curring every year in the United
States. When a teen or adult has a
sudden cardiac arrest, survival de-
pends on immediately receiving
CPR from someone nearby, espe-
cially since survival rates drop as

steps of Hands-Only™ CPR to the beat of “Stayin’ Alive”
much as 10 percent for every
minute that goes by without inter-
vention. The Bees Gees’ hit song
"Stayin’ Alive" has more than 100
beats per minute, which is the rate
you should push on the chest dur-
ing Hands-Only CPR.
“The iconic song’s beat is an easy
and fun way for people to remem-
ber the correct rhythm for CPR
chest compressions, and make
them feel more confident doing it,”
said Chrissy Meyer, Director of
Corporate & Media Relations for
the American Heart Association.
“If you begin Hands-Only CPR
to the beat of the Bee Gees’ ‘Stayin’
Alive’ immediately on a teen or
adult who collapses from sudden
cardiac arrest, you can double or
triple their chances of survival.”
In fact, Hands-Only CPR has
been shown to be equally as effec-
tive as conventional mouth-to-
mouth CPR, and people are more
likely to feel comfortable perform-
ing it.
A December 2012 study pub-
lished in the American Heart Asso-
ciation’s journal, Circulation found
that chest compression-only CPR
performed by bystanders keeps
more people alive with good brain
function after having a sudden car-
diac arrest.
As part of the second year of the
national Hands-Only CPR cam-
paign, the American Heart Associ-
ation debuted new TV and radio

ital promotions and a one-minute

The Board of Economic Develop-
ment is set to launch its four new
economic development programs
on July 1.
The programs are a result of SB
235, which was passed by the
State Legislature earlier this year.
The new legislation, frequently re-
ferred to as the “Building South
Dakota” legislation, focuses on ed-
ucation, housing, infrastructure,
local economic development ef-
forts, and large and small project
“With the passing of SB 235, the
board has created four new pro-
grams – the Economic Develop-
ment Partnership Fund, the Local
Infrastructure Improvement
Grant Fund, the Reinvestment
Payment Program, and the South
Dakota Jobs Grant Program,” said
Pat Costello, Commissioner, Gov-
ernor’s Office of Economic Devel-
opment. “These programs are the
direct result of bi-partisan efforts
to boost economic development in
South Dakota.”
The Economic Development
Partnership Program provides for
grants to non-profit development
corporations, municipalities, coun-
ties, or other political subdivisions
on a matching basis to fund new
staff, elevate existing part-time
staff, commence or replenish local
revolving loan funds, and for
equipment and training needs for
the purpose of developing or ex-
panding local, community, and eco-
nomic development programs.
The Local Infrastructure Im-
provement Grant Program pro-
vides for grants to political subdi-
visions or local development corpo-
rations to construct or reconstruct
Economic Development
programs to launch July 1
infrastructure for the purpose of
serving economic development
Both of these programs will ac-
cept the first round of applications
July 1-31.
The Reinvestment Payment Pro-
gram, which will accept applica-
tions on an ongoing basis, provides
for reinvestment payments to proj-
ects in excess of $20,000,000 or
with equipment upgrades in ex-
cess of $2,000,000.
The reinvestment payment
awarded may not exceed the ac-
tual South Dakota sales/use tax
paid on the project and awards are
intended for projects that wouldn’t
have occurred without the rein-
vestment payment.
The South Dakota Jobs Grant
Program, which is funded by the
five percent of the Building South
Dakota Fund allocated to the Re-
volving Economic Development
and Initiative Fund for projects
less than $20,000,000, will also ac-
cept application on an ongoing
This program is the inverse of
the Reinvestment Payment Pro-
gram and provides for grants to
projects less than $20,000,000 or
with equipment upgrades less
than $2,000,000.
“These new programs are going
to be great for economic develop-
ment in South Dakota, said Com-
missioner Costello. “We are look-
ing forward to using these new
tools to continue to create jobs and
foster business development
within the state.”

Intro to disaster preparedness class
Congresswoman Kristi Noem
(R-SD) announced in a post on her
Facebook page that she plans to
seek re-election to the U.S. House
of Representatives in 2014. Her
statement follows:
“I am excited to announce today
my intention to seek re-election to
the U.S. House in 2014.
I would like to thank everyone
who has encouraged me and
pledged support for a potential
campaign for the U.S. Senate.
However, after spending the week-
end discussing our future with
Bryon and our children, we de-
cided that right now we are in the
best position to serve South
Dakota as a member of the U.S.
“It is a privilege to serve South
Dakota in the House, and while
I’m proud of what we’ve been able
to accomplish, there is a lot more
Noem announces intent to seek
re-election to U.S House in 2014
we must do. At the top of that list
is getting a full five-year Farm Bill
passed to give our agriculture in-
dustry the certainty needed to
plan for the future.
“In Washington there seems to
be a new scandal breaking every
day related to federal government
overreach and abuse of power. It is
critical that we elect a Republican
to the U.S. Senate in 2014 who will
hold this Administration account-
able, rein in wasteful spending and
reduce our debt, and protect our
liberties. I will work hard to help
elect a South Dakota Republican
to the U.S. Senate next year.
“I would like to thank all South
Dakotans for the opportunity to
serve our state and for all of the
prayers and encouragement re-
ceived in the course of that serv-
Preparedness is how we change
behavior to “get ready” for the im-
pact of emergency or disaster
events for ourselves, our family,
and our community.
Human beings go through life
thinking they are not at risk. We
tell ourselves we are safe and
nothing will happen to us. But our
planet isn't safe and will never be
completely safe. We don't need to
live in a state of fear, but we do
need to have an awareness that
terrible things can and will hap-
pen and the effects of these things
can be lessened if we are prepared
and ready.

Management is again partnering
with Adventist Community Serv-
ices, Disaster Response and Rapid

me because the narrator, Pat Peo-
ples, says several things that make
a whole lot of sense. So much has
been said so simply.
I will share with you one of my
favorite quotes from the book. “I
am practicing being kind instead
of right.” – In the context of The
Silver Linings lessons
Silver Linings Playbook, the quote
makes quite an impact. Pat uses
this phrase several times as expla-
nation for why he steps out of his
comfort zone.
Sometimes Pat does things he
doesn’t like to do simply because
his actions are meaningful to his
family. I guess a person could ex-
plain it like this: “You do things
you might not like to do for the
ones that you love.”
Personally, I took much away
from this novel as a whole. I ad-
mire Pat’s strength and recovery
throughout the book.

Pick up a book this summer that
makes you think about new ideas
from a different perspective!
By Rep. Kristi Noem
It’s hard to believe that we are
already halfway through the year
with summer in full swing.
If you’re like me, it’s easy to lose
track of days between running er-
rands and arranging work and
family schedules. But amidst the
busyness that summer can bring,
Congress is also busy working to
promote job creation and a healthy
This past month, the number of
those unemployed in the United
States increased by 110,000, bring-
ing the total number of unem-
ployed individuals to almost 12
However, in South Dakota, we’re
doing something right. While the
national unemployment rate is 7.6
percent, South Dakota’s continues
to be substantially lower at 4.1
I recently visited with a woman
in South Dakota about some of the
tough decisions her family is fac-
ing this summer – decisions I
know a lot of families across South
Dakota can relate to.
This woman’s husband is facing
reduced hours at his work because
his employer has to cut back labor
costs and her kids are having a
hard time finding summer jobs.
In a rural state like South
Dakota, we are all used to driving
long distances to the grocery store,
to church and to sports activities.
With high gas prices, this
woman is also trying to deal with
how they’re going to keep gas in
the tanks and still put food on the
It’s conversations like this, and
others I’ve had with people
throughout our state, that remind
me of how important it is that we
have a healthy economy that gives
some certainty to American fami-
Members of both parties need to
work together to put forth real so-
lutions that provide for a secure
Not only has the House of Rep-
resentatives passed a responsible
budget that prioritizes our nation’s
spending and will end deficit
spending, but we’ve passed dozens
of job-related bills that have only
languished in the Senate.
The House has also passed leg-
islation that would provide a long-
term solution to student loan in-
terest rates, which will provide a
market-based approach to estab-
lishing interest rates.
We are going to continue to work
to ensure that our students get
quality educations, that they can
pay off their loans after gradua-
tion, and can get jobs and continue
their pursuit of the American
Americans’ confidence in their
government is fading, especially in
light of recent scandals and tepid
job and economic reports. It’s clear
we must work towards expanding
opportunities without expanding
our government.
South Dakotans wake up every
morning wanting security for our
families, security for our state, and
security for our nation, which is
something a strong, healthy econ-
omy can help provide.
Reminder of motor vehicle
registration fee increase
The South Dakota Department
of Revenue, Division of Motor Ve-
hicles, wants to remind motor ve-
hicle owners that the second phase
of the non-commercial motor vehi-
cle registration fee increase will go
into effect on July 1, 2013.
House Bill 1192, which was
passed in 2011 over Governor Den-
nis Daugaard’s veto, raised vehicle
registration fees in a two-phase
The first phase took place in
2011, and the second increase will
happen next month.
The new funds from the increase
will go to local roads and bridges.
Registration fees are computed
according to the weight schedules
for non-commercial vehicles.
The new fee rate schedule can be
viewed online at the Division of
Motor Vehicles webpage: http://ww

After four successful years train-
ing new farmers on the eastern
side of the state, Dakota Rural Ac-
tion’s Farm Beginnings® course is
moving west and will be offered in
Rapid City this year. Farm Begin-
nings is a farmer and rancher-led
training and support program that
provides participants the opportu-
nity to learn first-hand about low-
cost, sustainable methods of farm-
ing and ranching and the tools to
successfully launch a profitable en-
“We are very excited to be mov-
ing the Farm Beginnings course to
Rapid City so other aspiring farm-
ers and ranchers may be given a
chance to live out their dreams of
living off the land,” said course
graduate and farmer Aaron John-
son, who also serves on the pro-
gram’s steering committee.
Johnson is now a partner at
Johnson Farms, an organic grain
operation near Madison, SD.
Farm Beginnings participants
can be of any age, do not need to
currently own land, and come from
wide range of experiences and
farming and ranching interests.
Nearly 40 families have enrolled
in the course over the last four
years and 83 percent of graduates
are currently engaged in farming
activities (only 30 percent reported
involvement in farming activities
before taking the class).
“Farm Beginnings was the
launching pad we needed to get
started,” said Anne Hauglid,
farmer and course graduate.“Our
success as JHA Farms stemmed
from our experience with the class.
We went from zero farm income
to over $21,000 gross sales last
year for our broiler and egg busi-
ness. We’re looking to increase
that this year. If it hadn’t been for
Farm Beginnings we wouldn’t be
raising chickens successfully
Farm Beginnings classes are
held November to March and focus
on topics such as whole farm plan-
ning, financial and business plan-
ning, marketing, and connecting
with resources and mentors.
All classes are led by estab-
lished farmers and ranchers and
agricultural professionals. There
are opportunities for students to
further their skills by participat-
ing in mentorships with local
farmers and four - six field days
are offered through Dakota Rural
Action’s Farmer Network in the
summer. O v e r
eighty-percent of course graduates
Farm Beginnings® class helps kickstart new
operations training program moves to Rapid City
participate in these on-farm activ-
ities after finishing the course.
Danny Dyck of Worthing, S.D.
completed the course and followed
up with an internship where he
gained the production skills neces-
sary for him and his wife to launch
their own CSA, Deep Root Gar-
dens, which is now in its second
season of production. Said Dyck,
“I've found Farm Beginnings and
the Farmer Network to be indis-
pensable tools for connecting to
other local farmers, information,
and hands-on skill-building work-
shops. I am always looking to see
what kind of valuable info the Net-
work will provide me with next.”
Prospective participants should
contact Dakota Rural Action at
605-716-2200 or e-mail Program
Coordinator Heidi Kolbeck-
Urlacher at heidiku@dakotaural.o

application is encouraged.
Application deadline for the
2013 Rapid City class is October
18th. There are a limited amount
of scholarships available to help
with tuition costs. Course informa-
tion and online application can be

Farm Beginnings® is an estab-
lished curriculum developed over a
decade ago by the Minnesota-
based Land Stewardship Project
that is now replicated in several
different states, including Ill.,
Neb., N.D. and N.Y. Dakota Rural
Action has adapted the curriculum
to meet the needs of South Dakota
farmers and ranchers.

Blue skies and sunshine trans-
late to a perfect summer day.
Those elements are reflected in
South Dakota’s flag.
The story of the state’s banner
began in 1909, when State Sen.
Ernest May of Deadwood walked
into the office of the State Depart-
ment of History in Pierre. He dis-
cussed the need for a state flag
with state historian Doane Robin-
“Turning to me, Robinson said,
‘Miss Anding will make you a
flag,’” Ida (Anding) McNeil said in
an article in the Jan. 20, 1963,
Rapid City Daily Journal.
McNeil, a legislative reference
librarian at the time, designed and
made a flag that featured a blazing
sun in the center of a field of blue,
with the words “South Dakota”
above the sun in the arc of the cir-
cle and “The Sunshine State”
below the sun in the arc of the cir-
McNeil said in the newspaper
article that Robinson suggested a
blazing sun emblem because of
South Dakota’s many days of sun-
shine. McNeil showed the sample
flag to Robinson, who remarked
that the Great Seal of the State of
South Dakota would look nice on
the other side. McNeil agreed, and
the state seal set against a field of
dark blue was placed on the re-
verse side.
A bill adopting the state flag was
passed by the Legislature in 1909.
“If I had known as much about
flags as I do now, I certainly would
have left the reverse side plain,”
McNeil said in the Rapid City
Daily Journal article. “A two-sided
flag is very difficult to make. In ad-
dition to the added work, it is dif-
ficult to prevent one side from
showing through onto the other.”
McNeil explained in the newspa-
per article that to make the state
flag, she appliqued the golden sun
and embroidered the sun’s rays.
South Dakota’s State Flag
She then took another piece of
silk, painted details of the state
seal on it and appliqued this to the
reverse side of the flag. In addition
to being difficult to make, a two-
sided flag was expensive to pro-
The silk material from which
McNeil made the flag cost $12.50
per yard and the materials for one
flag cost about $75 in 1963.
McNeil left her state job when
she married in 1921. Although she
made the first state flag, she is bet-
ter remembered for being a pio-
neer in radio broadcasting. She be-
came known as “Mrs. Pierre” while
owner and operator of KGFX radio
in Pierre.
Another version of how South
Dakota’s flag came into being
states that May told Robinson that
Deadwood pioneer Seth Bullock
wanted a state flag. Robinson
makes no mention of Bullock’s in-
volvement in the state flag in
Doane Robinson’s Encyclopedia of
South Dakota. David A. Wolff of
Spearfish, author of Seth Bullock:
Black Hills Lawman, said that he
could find no evidence in his re-
search on Bullock to support the
idea of Bullock being involved in
the first state flag.
During the 1963 legislative ses-
sion, Rep. William Sahr of Pierre
introduced a bill to modify the
state flag.
The new one-sided flag kept a
sun with a serrated edge on a field
of sky blue but placed the state
seal inside the sun. Around the
sun were the words “South
Dakota” and “The Sunshine
The state’s banner was again re-
vised in 1992, when the Legisla-
ture approved changing the word-
ing on the flag to read “The Mount
Rushmore State” instead of “The
Sunshine State.” This reflected a
change in the state nickname.
The legislation for both the 1963
and 1992 changes contained a pro-
vision that any previous flags
made in conformance with state
law were to remain official state
flags. That means that it is legal to
use any of the three official state
Not everyone likes our state
flag. The North American Vexillo-
logical Association, an association
of flag experts, ranked South
Dakota’s flag as one of the five
worst in North America in 2001.
During the 2012 legislative ses-
sion, a bill to adopt a flag designed
by Spearfish artist Dick Termes
was introduced. This design fea-
tured a sunburst, an American In-
dian medicine wheel and concen-
tric blue circles. A House commit-
tee rejected the call to look at re-
vising the flag.

By Senator John Thune
Agriculture is a way of life in
South Dakota. Not only is it the
state’s largest industry and the
economic engine of our rural com-
munities, but our state’s rural
areas are where many families
raise their children and mold the
next generation of farmers and
ranchers—making agriculture
very important to our state’s fu-
Agriculture has changed over
the past two decades with crop
production becoming more effi-
cient and increasing yields. Farm-
ers are keeping up with the latest
technology using satellite steering
systems for their machinery and
applying seed, fertilizer, and chem-
icals with pinpoint accuracy and
I believe agriculture policy
should follow this example of effi-
ciency. As South Dakota’s only
member of the Senate Agriculture
Committee, I take very seriously
the responsibility of ensuring that
the farm policy coming out of
Washington is defensible to tax-
payers and responsive to the mod-
ern day needs of farmers and
Over the past year and a half, I
have introduced Farm Bill legisla-
tion that collectively would save
more than $50 billion over 10
years and eliminate unneeded and
costly programs.
As I talked to farmers and
ranchers across the state in prepa-
ration for this Farm Bill, they were
very clear about the importance of
a strong crop insurance program,
and they were just as clear that
they were willing to give up the
current Commodity Title programs
such as direct and counter-cyclical
payments, ACRE, and SURE pro-
grams. As I worked with the Sen-
ate Ag Committee on drafting the
2012 legislation, these requests re-
mained among my top priorities.
My proposals to provide market-
based payments for revenue losses
due to substantial crop losses or
steep price declines, in exchange
Senate’s 2013 Farm Bill moves
ag policy in the wrong direction
for the elimination of the direct,
counter-cyclical, ACRE, and SURE
programs were included in the
2012 Senate-passed Farm Bill.
For these reasons, I supported
the 2012 Farm Bill, as I did with
the previous two Farm Bills, be-
cause it included the reforms nec-
essary to move agriculture into the
Unfortunately, this year’s Sen-
ate Farm Bill reauthorizes a 20th
century Commodity Title program
for 21st century production agri-
culture and offers only minimal re-
forms amounting to about $4 bil-
lion in savings to the $800 billion
food stamp program.
The Commodity Title of this
year’s Senate bill included a new
program called Adverse Market
Payments which uses outdated
counter-cyclical payments calcu-
lated using high fixed target prices
that overwhelmingly benefit rice
and peanuts. The addition of this
new program, at a cost of more
than $3 billion to taxpayers, was
completely against the wishes of
South Dakota farmers, and a huge
step backward from the reforms
we passed last year. The inclusion
of this program and the minimal
reforms in the Nutrition Title are
major factors contributing to my
no vote on this bill.
Prior to passage, I offered two
amendments on the Senate Floor
that would have eliminated the
outdated target price program and
made modest reforms to save tax-
payer dollars within the food
stamp program. However, out of
more than 240 amendments that
were filed on the Senate floor, only
14 received votes.
This procedural decision to min-
imize amendment votes left me
without an opportunity to make
improvements to the Farm Bill,
and is yet another reason I could
not support the legislation.
While I was unable to vote for
the 2013 Senate Farm Bill, the leg-
islation still has a number of steps
before becoming law, and I will
take every opportunity to make it
a better Farm Bill for South
Dakota prior to final passage.

how perfect can it be!! Another
thank you for this day, right here
in Wasta.
Moni Grenstiner is thankful for
the first 48 hours after knee sur-
gery is behind her. Re-hab is under
way and she is looking forward to
life as usual quite soon.
Wanda Hall had a short visit in
the hospital Monday. Tammy
Green took her to the clinic where
the decision was made to check in
at Rapid City Regional. After tests
and a procedure or two, Wanda
was pronounced well enough to go
home. And, how glad she is to be
home! And eager to get on her rid-
ing mower and get some work
done! Wanda says she is so thank-
ful to be able to come home and so
full of thanks to all the friends who
telephoned, visited, sent cards and
especially to Tammy for her will-
ing “taxi” service to the hospital,
Monday, and brought home Thurs-
day by Lori Gibson.
We were so sorry to hear of
Karen Delbridge’s passing. she will
be missed.
Wasta appreciates the following:
Dan Turgeon for his partnership in
mowing with Faye Bryan. Shane
Green has been seen out and about
on his mowing machine, Kerry
Heriger took care of weeds at the
park, and to all of you who have
had a hand in our town looking
good…You are greatly appreciated!
`Shall we talk about or more
properly — “think” about Wasta’s

for all of you to participate in the
parade who have wonderful vin-
tage tractors. Jerry Schell has a
beauty, but even if yours isn’t all
painted and purty like Jerry’s,

Last Wednesday, Steve and
Wanda Goodrich and Guy and Es-
ther Carsten came down from
Rapid City and joined other family
for lunch, Annetta Geigle and Ivan
Karen Delbridge of Red Owl,
passed away last week. Her fu-
neral was in Sturgis on Monday.
Our sincere sympathy goes out to
her family and friends.
Norman Fauske died after suf-
fering for many years. His funeral
was on Tuesday, June 18th, at the
Evangelical Lutheran Church,
Wall. Our condolences go out to
that family, also.
Sherry DeLand, Kendra and
Lauren Schmit were in Wall a few
days last week from Nebraska.
They visited Janis Bush at New
Underwood and other relatives
while here.
Edith Strandell and her daugh-
ter Kay were in Wall last week vis-
iting friends and family. They left
for their home in Wisconsin on
Monday morning.
Michelle Lamphere celebrated
her birthday on Wednesday by vis-
iting Grandma Poste. They went
through the Badlands, had lunch
at Cedar Pass and Michelle took
lots of pictures on her new camera.
It was a rather cloudy day but
when the sun peeked out the colors
were beautiful with the bright blue
sky; puffy white clouds; green,
green grass and even the layers of
clay seemed of brighter colors with
the recent moisture. Happy birth-
day, Michelle!
People are shocked with the un-
timely death of Zane Nelson (28) of
Philip on Sunday. Our condolences
go out to the family. Lavern and
Dianne Terkildsen are his grand-
Ken and Karen Poppe and two
cousins from Sturgis, Keith and
Linda Bohm and Bert and Barb
Oliver, hosted a family reunion on
Saturday, the 15th, and Sunday,
the 16th, at the Wall Golf Course
for the Splonskanski family. They
also made use of the Wall City
Park. The guests were from as far
east as Albany, N.Y., to as far west
as Los Angeles, Calif. A great time
was had by all in Wall!
Gale and Karol Patterson were
in charge of Sunday worship serv-
ices in the Wasta and Wall
Methodist Churches. Pastor Dar-
win Kopfmann was officiating at a
wedding in the eastern part of the
state (a commitment made before
coming to Wall).
Hope all dads enjoyed Father’s
Day last Sunday.
We keep getting some measura-
ble moisture. Isn’t that great?!
Some of it came as hail on Sunday
but, here in Wall, damage was
minimal as there was no wind
with it. First day of summer,
longest day of the year, is on Fri-
day, June 21st. Really haven’t had
any HOT days so far.
Have a good week.

A suspected drunken driver
brandishing a rifle was shot “mul-
tiple times” after a brief pursuit
that passed through the eastern
edge of New Underwood, Penning-
ton County Sheriff Kevin Thom
said Monday evening.
Two Pennington County sheriff ’s
deputies and a South Dakota High-
way Patrol trooper fired on the 44-
year-old man at approximately 5
p.m. after a pursuit that began
about 4:30 p.m. Monday on Inter-
state 90, the sheriff said.
None of the officers involved
were injured in the confrontation,
Thom said.
“All of our officers are OK,” he
The suspect, who was not iden-
tified, was taken by ambulance to
Rapid City Regional Hospital. His
condition was unavailable Tuesday
According to Thom, the suspect
tried to evade law enforcement by
taking the exit to U.S. Highway
14/16 at New Underwood, which is
on the south side of I-90 and ap-
Man shot “multiple times” after chase
Sheriff: Shooting occurred near New Underwood
proximately 20 miles east of Rapid
After leaving the interstate, he
traveled through a residential area
in the town of around 600 people
and continued east on Highway
14/16. He eventually turned
around and headed west on the
same highway.
Thom said the officers used a
spike strip to stop the suspect’s
pickup about three miles east of
New Underwood. When the vehicle
stopped, a man stepped out of the
vehicle carrying a rifle.
The sheriff said the suspect’s ve-
hicle has South Dakota license
plates but were not issued in Pen-
nington County.
The state’s Department of Crim-
inal Investigation, with assistance
from the Rapid City Police Depart-
ment, is now handling the investi-
gation, which it routinely does in
cases of officer-involved shootings.
Thom said the sheriff ’s deputies,
whom he did not identify, have
been placed on administrative
leave, which is department policy.

Religious people — even sincere Christian people — may divide themselves into various de-
nominations or churches, but there is no indication in the Bible that God recognizes these divi-
sions. Indeed, God makes it abundantly clear that in His sight there is but one Church, composed
of all who truly trust in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. In I Cor. 12:12,13 the Apostle Paul
declares by divine inspiration:
“For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one
body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ:
Again, in Rom. 12:5, he says:
Indeed, it is on the basis of the fact that there is but “one body” in God’s sight that He exhorts
us to seek to “keep the unity of the Spirit”:
“THERE IS ONE BODY….” (Eph. 4:3,4).
How can we become members of that “one Body ,” the true Church? Ephesians 2 explains
how Christ died for all, Jew and Gentile alike, “that He might reconcile both unto God in one
body by the cross…” (Ver. 16). Indeed the Epistles of St. Paul show how God “hath concluded…
all in unbelief that He might have mercy upon all” (Rom. 11:32), and offer to them reconciliation
and salvation by grace through faith in Christ who died for our sins.
The question, then, is not: What church do you belong to? but, Do you belong to the Church,
the Body of Christ, composed of all who have acknowledged themselves to be sinners in the
sight of God and have trusted in Christ and His finished work for salvation?

Everyone knows that the more
warmed up and relaxed a runners
muscles are before he begins run-
ning a race, the greater the ease he
will have in running that race. He
warms up by doing various stretch-
ing exercises to stretch out his
muscles, and if he fails to do this, it
is not very likely that he ever win
any races. Stretching is not usually
considered fun for the runner, but
it is very beneficial and most vital
to success!
Stretching is also important in
other areas of life as well-even
when we are not going to be run-
ning a marathon any time soon. I
am talking about stretching out
our comfort zones.
Stretching out our comfort zones
is not something most of us enjoy
because we like our old comfortable
ways and we don't like pain. Some-
times we just get lazy and it's just
easier to keep doing the same old
stuff in the same old way. We lose
our focus, our priorities get out of
whack, and we get to the point
where we need something or some-
one to thrust us out of our normal
thinking and operating if we are
ever to get our of the rut we are in.
Ultimately when we are
stretched it forces us to think dif-
ferently, to operate with new mind
sets, and achieve more with health-
ier attitudes about time and the
preciousness there of. Stretching
out of our comfort zones brings
about much needed change, and
change is a great motivator.
Recently in the business world I
made some decisions to "rebuild"
my business from scratch after
twenty-some years of operating
with many of the same attitudes,
processes, thinking, and systems.
This decision has forced me to
stretch like never before in my en-
tire professional career. Stretching
has been so incredibly good for me
and the sales have been record
Actually, I thought I had made
this kind of radical shift in the past
but found out that I had never be-
fore stretched near what I was
truly capable of. My point is this:
Each of us has much more poten-
tial than at first we might think we
do. We must keep stretching, keep
changing, and keep growing. It's
refreshing and feels so good!
Let me encourage you to stretch
more than you ever thought possi-
ble. Allow it to happen; cause it to
happen. Fasten your seat belt and
hang on. Stretch like a rubber band
being pulled hard from both ends.
I guarantee it'll be the joy ride of
your life when you make the deci-
sion to stretch your comfort zone!

Karen’s dad until his death in
1968. Harold and Karen moved to
the Earl Kellogg ranch in October
of 1968 and worked with Arlene
Kellogg where they purchased
Raymond Kellogg’s place. Their
love for horses and livestock made
ranching an enjoyable time in
their lives. During this time, they
enjoyed their friendships with
many at the Enning Roping Club.
Karen’s love for animals helped
her raise bum lambs for some 50
In 1976, they followed the Lord’s

dent center for three years. In
1979, they moved to Meadow and
Pastored the Coal Springs Church
of God until 1985 when they came

number of children in Sunday
school, midweek Bible Study, and
VBS, where each learned of God’s
love and plan of salvation. She
taught Sunday school at Elm
Springs for many years. Karen
often packed a picnic lunch, and
Sunday noon meal was enjoyed
under the Belle Fourche River
Bridge before services in the after-
Karen cooked, sewed, and
helped her children in 4-H and

Members of the South Dakota
I am writing with new informa-
tion from the federal Veterans Ad-
ministration that is good news
about the State Veterans Home
Due to this good news, I will be
canceling the special session that I
had called for June 22.
As you know, I called a special
legislative session after bids for
the Veterans Home project came in
significantly higher than was esti-
I also accepted the low bid for
the project, contingent on approval
from the State Legislature to ap-
propriate the additional funds.
As the materials sent to you on
May 31 explained, we believed
that delaying construction of the
project into next year would lead to
the State losing a $23.6 million
Gov. Daugaard writes to S.D. Legislature
grant from the federal Veterans
Administration, as well as the loss
of eligibility for Medicaid. A special
session was the only way to appro-
priate the necessary funds without
delaying the project.
That is no longer the case. We
have been working with federal VA
officials to find a way around this
We recently received word that
the grant can be extended so that
we have until February 2014,
rather than June 2013, to finalize
construction plans.
We can also continue to be eligi-
ble for Medicaid, so long as work
on a new facility is ongoing.
This additional time will allow
us to revisit the current plans,
seek a scaled-back redesign, and
rebid the entire project.
I have spent the last three
weeks closely scrutinizing this
project, with the hope that cost
savings could be found to reduce
the cost of the project.
When I wrote to you on May 22,
I said that I didn’t believe that we
could cut the cost of this project by
$10 million and still build the fa-
cility that our veterans need. I now
believe that additional cost sav-
ings are possible.
Now that we have received addi-
tional time, I am ordering that the
entire project be reevaluated, re-
designed, and rebid.
We owe it to the taxpayers to be
certain that we are building a
durable, quality, and affordable fa-
Scull Construction has agreed to
set aside our contingent accept-
ance of the bid, and I very much
appreciate that.
I am hopeful that design
changes could lead to a total cost
that we can all feel more comfort-
able with, although I would cau-
tion you that construction costs in
the Black Hills do seem to be
higher than many regions of the
There will be additional infor-
mation over the next several
months, and a new plan will be
presented to the 2014 Legislature.
Finally, I want to thank you all
for the patience you have shown as
we have worked through this diffi-
cult process.
I know that many legislators
had to change plans to attend the
June 22 special session, and I truly
appreciate that. We all want to
honor our veterans with a home
that will meet their needs for
decades to come, even as we main-
tain our responsibility to the tax-
payers we serve.
Thank you.
The South Dakota Department
of Transportation would like to re-
mind landowners that mowing of
the right of way may not begin
east of the Missouri River before
Mowing of the state right of way
July 10.
Mowing of the right of way in
Gregory, Lyman and Tripp coun-
ties could begin on June 15.
If a person who is not the abut-
ting landowner wishes to mow the
interstate highway right of way, he
must apply for a permit and in-
clude a waiver signed by the abut-
ting landowner.
Contact information for the re-
gion engineer is available on the
DOT website at http://sddot.com/c
The Permit to Occupy the Right
of Way application is located on the
DOT website at http://sddot.
The department may mow medi-
ans and areas within the rights of
way prior to July 10 to control nox-
ious weeds and provide increased
safety to the traveling public.
The South Dakota State Medical
Association Alliance (SDSMA Al-
liance) has raised $16,000 for
Cribs for Kids, a program pro-
moted by First Lady Linda Dau-
gaard to help reduce infant mortal-
“In order to reduce infant mor-
tality, it is crucial to promote safe
sleep practices,” said Mrs. Dau-
gaard. “I am humbled that this
much money was raised and that
the fight against infant mortality
has become a statewide effort.”
The money raised is enough to
purchase 200 safe sleep kits from
Cribs for Kids.
Each kit includes a crib, a sheet
with a safe sleep message, a paci-
fier, a sleep sack and an educa-
tional brochure on safe-sleep prac-
The SDSMA Alliance is working

First Lady in infant mortality effort
Health to distribute the cribs to

The statewide SDSMA Alliance
first became involved with Cribs
for Kids in November of 2012
when the First Lady spoke to the
Sioux Falls chapter about infant
mortality and measures for pre-
vention. Following the presenta-
tion, the alliance partnered with
the First Lady and pledged to raise
money for Cribs for Kids.
“The South Dakota State Med-
ical Association Alliance recognizes
the concern for the high rate of in-
fant mortality in the State of
South Dakota and was honored to
be asked by First Lady Linda Dau-
gaard to work with Cribs for Kids
project this year,” said Grace Well-
man, a member of the alliance.
“Through our fundraising and
awareness efforts, the SDSMA Al-
liance can help make an impact on
reducing infant mortality in South
According to Wellman, the group
recently received a national award
recognizing their contribution to
Cribs for Kids.
The alliance was chosen out of
28 state entries to receive the AMA
Alliance Health Awareness Promo-
tion Award in Chicago on June 16.
After she became aware of the
high infant mortality rate in South
Dakota, Mrs. Daugaard chaired
the Governor’s Task Force on In-
fant Mortality. The task force was
established in 2011 and offered its
recommendations to the Governor
in 2012.
Early this year the task force re-
ported significant improvements
in areas such as prenatal care and
safe sleep practices.
With the approach of the Fourth
of July Holiday, the South Dakota
Game, Fish and Parks Depart-
ment is joining a national effort to
highlight boating safety.
Operation Dry Water will take
place June 28-30, and is a national
weekend promoting boating safety
and responsible use of alcohol
while boating.
Approximately 17 percent of all
boating fatalities nationwide are
As part of the national event,
GFP will be conducting extra boat-
ing safety patrols across the state
to promote safe and responsible
boating practices heading into the
Fourth of July holiday.
“Our conservation officers con-
duct these safety patrols through-
out the year,” Brandon Gust, GFP
boating safety coordinator, said.
“As we move into the peak boat-
ing season, we feel we can use our
presence to share the message that
GFP emphasizing boating safety
safety is an essential element of
any boating experience.”
Having a safe and sober opera-
tor is always a critical part of boat-
ing but Gust added there are other
items to account for as well.
“Before heading onto the water,
check your equipment,” he said.
“Fire extinguishers, life jackets,
throwable seat cushions and other
equipment must be in good work-
ing condition. The best way to pre-
vent an unwanted tragedy on the
water is to be prepared.”
The majority of boats in South
Dakota are required to carry:
One U.S. Coast Guard-approved
wearable, properly sized person-
able flotation device for each per-
son aboard One U.S. Coast Guard-
approved throwable type flotation
device (seat cushion or ring buoy)
for vessels 16 feet or longer, One
U.S. Coast Guard-approved fire
extinguisher of B-1 type or larger
for vessels with enclosed gas com-
Gust noted that state regula-
tions require all children under
age seven to wear an approved
personal flotation device anytime
a boat is moving at greater than
no-wake speed. He recommends
taking the next step and keeping a
personal flotation device on all oc-
cupants in the boat at all times.
If boaters are uncertain what
safety equipment they are re-
quired to have onboard, Gust sug-
gests that they pick up a copy of
the South Dakota Boating Hand-
book at the nearest GFP Office,
state park, GFP-license outlet or
by going online at http://gfp.sd.gov/
“Boating is all about having fun.
Our boating safety patrols have a
secondary role of law enforce-
ment,” Gust said. “Our primary
goal is to share the message with
the boating public that safety is
the most important factor to a fun
outing. We want everyone to have
an enjoyable boating season.”

Dr. Dobson Answers
your Questions
QUESTIoN: With everything it
takes to work at the office and
manage a home, how can I find
quality time to spend with my
kids? It seems like there aren’t
enough hours in the day to do all
that needs to be done. What do you
think I should do?
ANSWER: You may have more
time than you realize. If not, it’s
crucial that you put out an effort to
find or make some.
A few years ago family experts
were preaching that what’s impor-
tant is “quality time,” not “quan-
tity time.” More recent research
shows that kids need both “qual-
ity” and “quantity” time with their
parents. In fact, the more involved
parents are with their children,
the less likely they are to have so-
cial, emotional, or academic prob-
lems, use drugs or alcohol, become
involved in crime, or engage in pre-
marital sex.
You have to keep in mind that
it's not always possible to plan
meaningful interactions between a
parent and a child. Such serendip-
itous moments can't be cooked up
and crammed into a few minutes
of "quality time" every day. Many
opportunities to teach or model
moral values may catch you off-
guard and will be gone in the blink
of an eye. You can’t seize the mo-
ment if you're not there to do the
seizing. And that means spending
lots of "quantity" time together
with your kids.
Without more detailed informa-
tion about your family situation
it’s hard to know exactly how to
advise you. But your inquiry leads
us to believe that you may need to
re-examine your priorities. You
can begin by honestly asking your-
self a few simple questions. Is
your employment outside the
home a matter of providing for
basic needs, or are you driven by
materialistic desires or a longing
for personal significance? Are
there any aspects of “maintaining
a household” that you can afford to
sacrifice? Do you attach a greater
value to status or appearance than
to the well-being of your kids?
After all, a spotless home isn’t
nearly as important as a close re-
lationship with your children. As
an anonymous poet has written:
For when at times I’m forced to
The one job or the other,
I’d like to cook and clean and
But first I’ll be a mother.
Another suggestion: one of the
easiest ways to make more time
for your kids is to turn off the TV.
In the average American home, the
television is on 49 hours a week.
By way of contrast, the average
amount of time that both parents
spend in meaningful conversation
with their children is 39 minutes a
week. If you’re serious about
wanting more time with your kids,
make the obvious choice. Instead
of watching TV, read to them, play
board games together, take a walk
to a local park, or just talk to them.
It’s also important to avoid the
temptation to get your kids overly
involved in activities outside the
home. Some parents feel pressure
to sign their children up for nu-
merous sports teams, music and
dance lessons, social clubs, and all
kinds of community organizations.
Don’t fall prey to this mindset.
Kids don’t need a dozen different
weekly activities. They need qual-
ity and quantity time with loving,
involved, and committed parents.
QUESTIoN: What are the dif-
ferences between a mother’s role
and a father’s role? As a dad, I’m
actively involved with my kids on
the weekends and evenings, and I
even go to school meetings when I
can. Is there something special
I’m supposed to be doing as a fa-
ther that’s different from what my
wife does as their mother?
ANSWER: The Bible teaches us
that fathers have a unique ability
to bless their children. This con-
cept has roots in the Old Testa-
ment, where we often find descrip-
tions of fathers imparting the fam-
ily’s spiritual heritage to their chil-
dren. This is seen, for example, in
Jacob’s blessing of his sons in Gen-
esis 49. It is also reflected in the
New Testament’s portrayal of
Christ’s baptism, where God the
Father opens up the heavens and
blesses Jesus at the outset of His
Such is the significance of a fa-
ther in the life of his kids that a
spoken blessing from dad often
proves crucial to a child’s sense of
value and worth as a person. It
can play an extremely important
role in imparting strength, confi-
dence, and spiritual boldness to
the next generation. You can learn
more about planning a formal
blessing ceremony for your kids in
John Trent and Gary Smalley’s
book The Blessing.
You can also bless your children
each day by modeling Christ-like
character in everything you do and
say. A caring and diligent father
needs to be intentional about
teaching his children about the
Christian faith and praying for
them on a regular basis.
Deuteronomy 11 instructs men to
fix God’s words in their hearts and
minds and to teach those words to
their children, speaking of them at
home and on the road, in the
morning and at bedtime, and in
every situation of life.
How is this different from what
your wife provides for your chil-
dren in her role as a godly mother?
Sociologist Davide Popenoe of Rut-
gers University has done extensive
research on the different functions
that moms and dads play in the
lives of their kids. His studies
show that while fathers tend to
emphasize the importance of com-
petition, challenge, initiative, and
risk-taking, mothers are more
likely to stress a child’s need for
emotional security and personal
safety. In the area of discipline,
moms offer flexibility and sympa-
thy while dads provide predictabil-
ity and consistency. That’s why
kids do best on every measure of
well-being when they are raised in
a home where both a mother and a
father are present.
QUESTIoN: My husband is a
workaholic – what’s the best way
to address this with him? He
spends very little time with me
and our sons, but when I approach
him, he simply says, “Things will
be better soon.” Do you have any
ANSWER: Your concerns are le-
gitimate, but comments that may
be perceived as “complaining” are
not an effective way of dealing
with them. Before doing anything
else, you need to make an effort to
get inside your husband’s mind. If
you can grasp his motivation and
understand what makes him tick,
you’ll be in a much better position
to help him see things from your
point of view. Then you can work
together to find a solution to your
God has wired men to provide
for their wives and children.
That’s a good thing, but because
we’re imperfect human beings liv-
ing in a fallen world, that natural,
God-given desire can sometimes
become distorted. One result is
that some men are led to define
their identity and personal worth
in terms of what they do for a liv-
ing rather than in terms of who
they are and how they are related
to God, their families, and other
people. They become so focused on
their role as provider that they end
up neglecting the emotional and
relational needs of their wives and
kids. Far too many dads in our so-
ciety fit this description: they are
workaholics who are disconnected
from the needs and feelings of the
people they love.
Your husband seems to fall into
this category. If what you say
about him is true, he needs to re-
examine his priorities. The Bible
tells us clearly how believers are
supposed to order their lives: God
first, spouse second, children third,
and then our work, education, hob-
bies, etc. At some point your hus-
band is going to have to wake up to
reality and make some serious
changes. If he’s working sixty
hours a week or spending a major-
ity of his time out of town on busi-
ness trips, your kids are going to
suffer. Young children desperately
need both quality and quantity
time with their fathers.
You can play a key role in help-
ing him make the necessary
changes to his value system. You
can provide him with the love, sup-
port, and encouragement he needs
in order to feel good about himself
not only as a provider but as a hus-
band, a father, and a person. But
you won’t be able to do it by nag-
ging and complaining. None of us
responds well to demands. If your
husband feels criticized or at-
tacked, he may simply withdraw
and spend even more time at work.
Here’s an approach you might
want to try. Plan a dinner out with
your husband on a weekend. Get
a babysitter and go out to a nice
restaurant. Put aside your resent-
ment and frustration and tell him
how much you love him and appre-
ciate his diligence, his work ethic,
and his dedication to his role as
family provider. At the same time,
be honest with him and let him
know that his job seems to be tak-
ing precedence over his family.
Tell him you value his input and
involvement as a father, and ask
him if he’d be willing to examine
his schedule and make some
If your husband does express an
openness to your concerns, then
you’ve won an important battle
and taken a huge step in the right
direction. But we would -advise
you to be patient and understand-
ing with him. If he’s a driven indi-
vidual who is prone to worka-
holism, he’s not going to change
overnight. If he’s serious about
making the changes you’re re-
questing, he’ll want to be held ac-
countable by a mentor or a group
of Christian men who can help him
keep his priorities straight. Many
churches sponsor support groups
that can supply this need for him.

At long last, summer is almost
here — which may mean it’s time
to put together your traveling
plans. Still, while you and your
family may enjoy going a summer-
time trip, there’s one part of your
life that should not go on vacation
— and that’s your investment port-
So, what can you do to help your
investments keep on working all
year long, year in and year out?
Here are a few suggestions:
•Don’t chase after “hot” invest-
ments. Many times, you will hear
about a “hot” investment, usually
a stock. However, by the time you
hear about such an investment, it
may already be cooling off. Even
more importantly, it might not
have been appropriate for your
needs — and any investment that
has either “flamed out” or wasn’t
right for you in the first place will
not be a “hard worker” in your
•Monitor “lazy” investments.
Under the right circumstances,
just about any investment could be
of value to you. However, under
different scenarios, those same in-
vestments may not be doing as
much for you. To cite one example,
when interest rates are at historic
lows, as has been the case recently,
and your portfolio contains a rela-
tively large amount of short-term
fixed-rate vehicles whose interest
payments don’t even keep up with
inflation, they could be considered
“lazy” investments.
•Look for the “multi-taskers.” In
most aspects of life, “multi-
taskers” are valuable — and it’s
the same in the investment world.
Can you find a particular type of
investment that may be able to
achieve multiple goals at the same
time? Consider dividend-paying
stocks. If you need the income to
supplement your cash flow, you
can cash the dividend checks. And
since some companies tend to in-
crease their dividends, your in-
vestment in these stocks can serve
as a source of potential for rising
income, helping keep you ahead of
inflation. Furthermore, if you don’t
actually need the dividends to sup-
port your income stream, you can
reinvest them to increase your
ownership stake — a method of
building your overall wealth. Fi-
nally, many dividend-paying
stocks also offer significant growth
potential. Keep in mind, though,
that there are no guarantees, be-
cause companies can lower or dis-
continue their dividends at any
time. And, as you know, stocks are
subject to market risk, including
the potential loss of principal in-
•Don’t take a “time out” from in-
vesting. The financial markets reg-
ularly move up and down. During
the down times, it’s important not
to get so discouraged that you de-
cide to take a “time out” from in-
vesting until “things get better.”
No one can really predict when a
downturn will end, but you don’t
want to be on the investment side-
lines when the market turns
around — because the biggest
gains can occur in the early stages
of a rally. And in any case, if you’re
not constantly investing, or at
least exploring new investment op-
portunities, your portfolio could
begin to stagnate — or even be-
come “unbalanced,” in which case
it may no longer fit your objectives
or your risk tolerance.
By following the above sugges-
tions, you can help keep your in-
vestments working for you this
summer — as well as fall, winter
and spring. The road toward
achieving your financial goals is a
long one — so try to keep moving.

ity control program within its ju-
risdiction; and
WHEREAS, the implemen-
tation of an air quality program

lic; and
WHEREAS, the County cur-

ity program which regulates

in a designated area within
Pennington County per Ordi-
nance Number 12; and
WHEREAS, the City of

County have previously en-
tered into a cooperative agree-
ment to jointly regulate fugitive
emissions and the abatement
of smoke within their respec-
tive jurisdictions; and
WHEREAS, the Rapid City

provisions of the County’s Air
Quality Ordinance; and
WHEREAS, the Board of
County Commissioners of Pen-

has determined that it is in the
County’s best interests to
adopt the recommendations of
the Rapid City Area Air Quality
Board by enacting a new re-
vised Pennington County Ordi-
nance Number 12.
ORDAINED by the Board of
County Commissioners of Pen-
nington County, South Dakota
that Pennington County Ordi-
nance Number 12 be amended
to read as follows:
Section 101 Policy of

pliance status with the United
States Environmental Protec-
tion Agency’s National Ambient
Air Quality Standards and to
prevent adverse health effects

declared to be the policy of the
County of Pennington County,
South Dakota to achieve and
maintain the PM10 and PM2.5
National Ambient Air Quality
Standards by controlling fugi-
tive emissions, open burning
and wood burning in the inter-
est of public health and wel-
fare; to limit environmental
damage to plant and animal
life; to promote commercial
and industrial development
while limiting environmental
degradation; and to educate
the public about air quality is-
sues. As air travels without re-
gard for political boundaries,
maintaining compliance with
federal air quality standards re-
quires cooperation between
the South Dakota Department
of Environment and Natural
Resources and the city and
county to avoid costly conse-
quences and protect public
health in the area where nonat-
tainment designation is most
vulnerable. This policy is to be
achieved and maintained
through the development and
implementation of programs of
education, air pollution preven-
tion, abatement and control. It
is the purpose of this ordinance
to provide for a program of fugi-
tive emissions control by apply-

sufficiently dry to commence
street sweeping; or when in-
structed to do so by the Air
Quality Division. Political sub-
divisions do not need permis-
sion from the Air Quality Divi-
sion to commence street
2. When it has been de-
termined by the Air Quality Di-
vision that there is a fugitive
emissions problem due to the
presence of street deicing
and/or traction materials; and
3. Street cleaning will not
be required on paved public
roads with restricted travel, or
when unusual weather or other
circumstances prevent it. The
political subdivision shall in-
clude in its compliance plan a
paved street cleaning plan list-
ing priority streets and sched-
E. Any political subdivision
maintaining any paved public
roads shall water flush the
roadways when it has been de-
termined by the Air Quality Di-
vision that street deicing and/or
traction materials are causing a
fugitive emissions
problem. This will be con-
ducted after street cleaning.
Street water flushing is not re-
quired if it endangers public
safety or if water use restric-
tions are in effect.
F. All vehicles that are trans-
porting fugitive emissions emit-
ting materials on public roads
shall be covered with a tarp to
reduce the emissions or must
use a method that is equally ef-
fective in reducing the emis-
G.Any material that is de-
posited, other than street deic-
ing and/or traction materials,
on any paved public roadway
on which vehicular travel is not
restricted, that could be reen-
trained as fugitive emissions,
shall be cleaned or removed as
soon as possible or no more
than 24 hours after deposition.
The cleaning or removal
process shall be conducted so
that the minimal fugitive emis-
sions are generated.
H. Cleaning of Paved Sur-
faces. Deposited materials
shall be cleaned up by using a
vacuum sweeper or other
method pre-approved by the
Air Quality Division. Sufficient
water shall be used to prevent
or minimize fugitive dust during
sweeping activities. The use of
a dry mechanical broom or
compressed air to clean up de-
posited materials is prohibited.

mit allows the applicant to com-
mence the operation thereun-
der. A new application for a
compliance plan shall be sub-
mitted to the Air Quality Divi-
sion 90 days prior to the expi-
ration of the compliance plan
Section 113 additional fee for
failing to obtain permit
Failure to submit the appli-
cation to obtain or renew a per-
mit and/or pay the permitting
fee prior to engaging in activi-
ties regulated by this chapter
will result in an additional fee
being added to the permit fee
for each full week that the op-
eration continues without a
permit, and may further subject
the person in violation to the
penalty and injunctive provi-
sions contained herein. Fees
for this penalty shall be set by
resolution of the Common
Council and a copy thereof will
be submitted to the Pennington
County Auditor. The first

standards for permitted sites
A. Facility boundary stan-
dard. The transportation of vis-
ible fugitive emissions off the
property of a construction,
parking and/or outdoor storage
area or continuous operation
facility site for more than six
minutes of any one-hour period
will be considered an indication
that the provisions of the air
quality construction permit,
parking and/or outdoor storage
area permit or compliance plan
are not being complied with
and shall cause a determina-
tion to be made of the source
of the visible fugitive emissions
and an opacity reading to be
made at the source. Visible
fugitive emissions limitations
shall be determined by 40
C.F.R. Part 60 Appendix A,
Method 22 (July 1, 2009). The
visible fugitive emissions shall
be determined by a certified
observer at the property line.
B. Fugitive emissions source
standard. A fugitive emissions
source shall not have a density
greater than that designated as
20 percent opacity. Exceeding
this standard shall be consid-
ered a violation of the provi-
sions of the air quality con-
struction permit, parking and/or
outdoor storage area permit or
compliance plan, and shall
cause a review of the air quality
construction permit, parking
and/or outdoor storage area
permit or compliance plan.
Fugitive emissions limitations
of opacity specified in this
paragraph shall be determined
by the procedures in 40 C.F.R.
Part 60 Appendix A, Method 9
(July 1, 2009). The opacity
readings shall be determined
by a certified observer or by
operation of equipment ap-
proved by the Air Quality Divi-
sion that is known to produce
equivalent or more accurate re-

Codified Laws, Section 7-18A-
2, 7-18-14, 7-18-15 and 11-2-
11. Be it ordained by the Board
of County Commissioners of
Pennington County as follows:
The areas of special flood haz-
ard of the County are subject to
periodic inundation which re-
sults in loss of life and property,
health and safety hazards, dis-
ruption of commerce and gov-
ernmental services, extraordi-
nary public expenditures for
flood protection and relief, and
impairment of the tax base, all
of which adversely affect the
public health, safety and gen-
eral welfare. The flood losses
are caused by the cumulative
effect of obstructions in areas
of special flood hazards which
increase flood heights and ve-
locities, and when inade-
quately anchored, damage
uses in other areas. Uses that
are inadequately floodproofed,
elevated or otherwise pro-
tected from flood damage also
contribute to the flood loss.
103. TITLE: This Ordinance
shall be known as the Penning-
ton County Flood Damage Pre-
vention Ordinance.
104. PURPOSE: To pro-
mote the public health, safety
and general welfare, and to
minimize public and private
losses due to flood conditions
in specific areas by provisions
A. To protect human life
and health;
B. To minimize expendi-
ture of public money for costly
flood control projects;
C. To minimize the need
for rescue and relief efforts as-
sociated with flooding and gen-
erally undertaken at the ex-
pense of the general public;
D. To minimize prolonged
business interruptions;
E. To minimize damage to
public facilities and utilities
such as water and gas mains,
electric, telephone and sewer
lines, streets and bridges lo-
cated in areas of special flood
F. To help maintain a sta-
ble tax base by providing for
the second use and develop-
ment of areas of special flood
hazard so as to minimize future
flood blight areas;
G.To ensure that potential
buyers are notified that prop-
erty is in an area of special
flood hazard; and,
H. To ensure that those
who occupy the areas of spe-
cial flood hazard assume re-
sponsibility for their actions.
order to accomplish its pur-
pose, this Ordinance includes
methods and provisions for:
A. Restricting or prohibit-
ing uses which are dangerous
to health, safety and property
due to water or erosion haz-
ards, or which result in damag-
ing increases in erosion or in
flood heights or velocities;
B. Requiring that uses
vulnerable to floods, including
facilities which serve such
uses, be protected against
flood damage at the time of ini-
tial construction;
C. Controlling the alter-
ation of natural flood plains,
stream channels, and natural
protective barriers, which help
accommodate or channel flood
D. Controlling filling, grad-
ing, dredging and other devel-
opment which may increase
flood damage; and,
E. Preventing or regulat-
ing the construction of flood
barriers which will unnaturally
divert flood waters or which
may increase flood hazards in
other areas.
Unless specifically defined
below, words or phrases used
in this Ordinance shall be inter-
preted so as to give them the
meaning they have in common
usage and to give this Ordi-
nance its most reasonable ap-
HAZARD: The land in the
floodplain within a community
subject to a one percent or
greater chance of flooding in
any given year. The area may
be designated as Zone A on
the FHBM. After detailed
ratemaking has been com-
pleted in preparation for publi-
cation of the flood insurance
rate map, Zone A usually is re-
fined into Zones A, AO, AH ,A1-
30, AE, A99, AR, AR/A1-30,
VO or V1-30, VE or V. For pur-
poses of these regulations, the
term “special flood hazard
area” is synonymous in mean-
ing with the phrase “area of
special flood hazard.”

Ordinance applies to all areas
of special flood hazard within
the County, outside of incorpo-
rated areas.
The areas of special flood haz-
ard are identified by the Fed-
eral Emergency Management
Agency in a scientific and engi-
neering report entitled, “The
Flood Insurance Study for Pen-
nington County, South Dakota,”
and accompanying Flood In-

on scientific and engineering
considerations. Larger floods
can and will occur on rare oc-
casions. Flood heights may be
increased by man-made or nat-
ural causes. This Ordinance
does not imply that land out-
side the areas of special flood
hazard or uses permitted within
such areas will be free from
flooding or flood damage. This
Ordinance shall not create lia-
bility on the part of the County,
any officer or employee
thereof, or the Federal Emer-

MENT OFFICE: The Director
is hereby appointed to admin-
ister and implement this Ordi-
nance by granting or denying
Floodplain Development Per-
mits in accordance with its pro-
start of construction or devel-
opment within any area of spe-
cial flood hazard, as defined
herein, a Floodplain Develop-
ment Permit application shall
be submitted for approval to
the Director, who shall issue
the permit only if the proposal
conforms to the requirements
of this Ordinance. Application
for Floodplain Development
Permits shall be made on
forms furnished by the Plan-
ning Department.
Floodplain Development Per-
mit Application may include,
but not be limited to: plans
drawn to scale showing the na-
ture, location, dimensions, and
elevations of the area in ques-
tion; existing or proposed
structures, fill, storage of mate-
rials, drainage facilities; and
the location of the foregoing.
Specifically, the following infor-
mation is required:
A. Elevation in relation to
mean sea level of the lowest
floor, including basement, of all
B. Elevation in relation to
mean sea level to which any
structure has been flood-
C. Certification by a regis-
tered professional engineer or
architect that the floodproofing
methods for any non-residen-
tial structure meet the flood-
proofing criteria described in
this Ordinance.
D. Description of the ex-
tent to which any watercourse
will be altered or relocated as a
result of a proposed develop-
ment. In the event of such al-
teration or relocation, the appli-
cant must certify that the flood
carrying capacity of the af-
fected watercourse is not di-
A. The Director shall:
1. Review all Flood-
plain Development Permit Ap-
plications to determine that the
requirements of this Ordinance
have been met, and, if so,
issue the permit;
2. Determine that all
necessary permits have been
obtained from those federal,
state and local government
agencies from which prior ap-
proval is required before a
Floodplain Development Per-
mit can be issued. Copies of
such permits shall be attached
to the Floodplain Development
3. Maintain for public
inspection all records pertain-
ing to the provisions of this Or-
4. Obtain and record
the actual elevation in relation
to mean sea level of the lowest
floor, including basement, of all
new or substantially improved
structures, and whether or not
the structure contains a base-
5. For all new or sub-
stantially improved flood-
proofed structures, obtain and
record the actual elevation in
relation to mean sea level to
which the structure has been
floodproofed and record the
floodproofing certifications as
required by this Ordinance;
6. Maintain records of
all variances including techni-
cal information and report such
to the Federal Emergency
Management Agency.
B. Use of Available Flood
Data. When base flood eleva-
tion data has not been pro-
vided in accordance with Sec-
tion 302, the Director shall ob-
tain, review and reasonably uti-
lize any base flood elevation
and flood way data available
from a federal, state or other
source, as criteria for requiring
that development in areas of
special flood hazard meets the
requirements of this Ordi-
C. Watercourse Alteration.
In the event that a watercourse
is proposed to be altered so as
to affect the base flood carrying
capacity, the Director shall no-
tify affected communities and
the South Dakota Division of
Emergency and Disaster Serv-
ice prior to any alteration or re-
location of a watercourse, and
submit evidence of such notifi-
cation to the Federal Emer-
gency Management Agency.
The Director shall also require
that maintenance is provided
within the altered or relocated
portion of said watercourse so
that the flood carrying capacity
is not diminished.
D. Interpretation of
Boundaries. The Director shall
make interpretations, where
needed, as to the exact loca-
tion of the boundaries of the
areas of special flood hazard.
Such an example would be
where there appears to be a
conflict between a mapped
boundary and actual field con-
ditions or previous pertinent
flood experience.
E. Evacuation Plan. The
Director shall see that a plan
for the notification and evacua-
tion in a flood emergency of
residents of all manufactured
home parks or subdivisions lo-
cated within flood prone areas
is developed and filed with, and
approved by, the appropriate
community emergency man-
agement authorities.
DARDS: In all areas of special
flood hazards, the following
standards shall apply:
A. Anchoring:
1. All new construction
and substantial improvements
shall be anchored to prevent
flotation, collapse, or lateral
movement of the structure, and
shall be capable of resisting
hydrostatic and hydrodynamic
loads and the effects of buoy-
ancy generated by the 100-
year flood. (If the structure is
elevated on fill a minimum of
one (1) foot above the base
flood level, the anchoring re-
quirement is satisfied.)
2. All manufactured
homes to be placed within an
area of special flood hazard
shall be installed using meth-
ods and practices which mini-
mize flood damage. For the
purposes of this requirement,
manufactured homes must be
anchored to resist flotation, col-
lapse, or lateral movement.
This requirement is in addition
to applicable state and local
anchoring requirements for re-
sisting wind forces. Methods of
anchoring may include, but are
not limited to, use of over-the-
top or frame times to ground
anchors, as specifically listed
Other anchoring tech-
niques that are as effective, or
more effective, in resisting
flood forces as over-the-top or
frame ties may also be em-
ployed (refer to FEMA manual
“Manufactured Home Installa-
tion in Flood Hazard Areas”,
published 9/85, and its succes-
sors for guidance on other an-
choring techniques).
a. Over-the-top ties
shall be provided at each of the
four corners of the manufac-
tured home, with two additional
ties per side at intermediate lo-
cations, with homes less than
50 feet long requiring only one
additional tie per side; or,
b. Frame ties shall
be provided at each corner of
the manufactured home with
five additional ties per side at
intermediate locations, with
homes less than 50 feet long
requiring only four additional
ties per side;
c. All components of
the anchoring system shall be
capable of carrying a force of
4,800 pounds; and,
d. Any additions to
the manufactured home shall
be similarly anchored.
3. A registered profes-
sional engineer shall develop
and/or review any designs,
specifications and plans for an-
choring, and shall certify that
the design and methods of an-
choring are in accordance with
the applicable provisions of this
Ordinance and are adequate to
withstand flood forces associ-
ated with the base flood.
B. Construction Materials
and Methods: All new con-
struction and substantial im-
provements shall be construed
using methods, practices and
materials that minimize flood
C. Utilities:
1. All new and replace-
ment water supply systems
shall be designed to minimize
or eliminate infiltration of flood
waters into the system.
2. New and replace-
ment sanitary sewage systems
shall be designed to minimize
or eliminate infiltration of flood
waters into the systems and
discharge from the systems
into the flood waters.
3. On-site waste dis-
posal systems shall be located
to avoid impairment to them or
contamination from them dur-
ing flooding.
4. Electrical, heating,
ventilation, plumbing, air-condi-
tioning equipment and other
service facilities shall be de-
signed and/or located so as to
prevent water from entering or
accumulating within the com-
ponents during conditions of
D. Subdivision Proposals:
(a proposal for dividing land
into two or more parts for the
purpose of development):
1. Shall be designed
with features that recognize the
need to minimize flood dam-
2. Shall have public
utilities and facilities such as
sewer, gas, electrical and
water systems located and
constructed to minimize flood
3. Shall have adequate
drainage provided to minimize
exposure to flood damage;
4. For all new subdivi-
sion proposals and other pro-
posed developments (including
proposals for manufactured
home parks and subdivisions)
greater than 50 lots or 5 acres,
whichever is the lesser, base
flood elevation data shall be
prepared and certified by a reg-
istered professional engineer
or taken from recognized base
flood elevation data, and the
source of the base flood eleva-
tion data used by the regis-
tered land surveyor in prepar-
ing and certifying the proposed
plat shall be clearly identified
on the plat; and,
5. For all plats of land
located in areas of special
flood hazard, appropriate nota-
tions indicating possible flood
hazards shall be placed on the
plat prepared and certified by a
registered land surveyor.
DARDS: In all areas of special
flood hazard where base flood
elevation data has been pro-
vided from any source, the fol-
lowing standards are required:
A. Residential Construc-
tion. New construction and
substantial improvement of any
residential structure shall have
the lowest floor, including
basement, elevated to, or
above, the base flood eleva-
B. Non-residential Con-
struction. New construction
and substantial improvement
of any commercial, industrial or
other non-residential structure
shall either have the lowest
floor including basement, ele-
vated to the level of the base
flood or, together with atten-
dant utility and sanitary facili-
ties, shall be floodproofed
using either wet floodproofing
or dry floodproofing methods
as specified in this Ordinance.
1. Dry Floodproofing:
a. The structure
must be floodproofed so that
below the base flood level the
structure is watertight with
walls substantially imperme-
able to the passage of water;
b. The structure
must have structural compo-
nents capable of resisting hy-
drostatic and hydrodynamic
loads and the effects of buoy-
ancy generated by the 100-
year flood.
2. Wet Floodproofing:
a. Fully enclosed
areas below the lowest floor
that are subject to flooding
shall be designed to automati-
cally equalize flood forces on
exterior walls by allowing for
the entry and exit of floodwa-

Located within areas of spe-
cial flood hazard are areas de-
signed as floodways. Since
the floodway is an extremely
hazardous area due to the ve-
locity of flood waters which
carry debris, potential projec-
tiles, and erosion potential, the
following provisions apply:
A. Encroachments, in-
cluding fill, new construction,
substantial improvements and
other development, are prohib-
ited unless certification by a

ments shall not result in any in-
crease in flood levels during
the occurrence of the base
flood discharge.

ment is satisfied, all new con-
struction and substantial im-
provements shall comply with
all applicable flood hazard re-

must be made by the applicant
to notify all owners (including
contract for deed buyers) of
land laying within five hundred
(500) feet, inclusive of right-of-
way, of the outer boundaries of
the property involved in the re-
quest. The list of landowners

hearing on the request held by
the Board of Adjustment.
3. The Planning De-
partment shall provide to the
applicant a sign which is to be
posted on the property in-
volved in the Variance request
in a location with the greatest
public visibility. Said sign shall
be so placed no less than ten
(10) days prior to the date of
the public hearing before the
Board of Adjustment.
B. Public Hearing
Upon receipt of an appli-
cation and fee, a public hearing
shall be held on the request in
a location to be prescribed by
the Board of Adjustment. Said
hearing is to be held not less
than ten (1) days after publica-
tion of notice of the time and

full Board of Adjustment.
The Board of Adjustment shall
consider all technical evalua-
tions, all relevant factors, stan-
dards specified in other sec-
tions of this Ordinance, and:
A. The danger that mate-
rials may be swept onto other
lands to the injury of others;
B. The danger to life and
property due to flooding or ero-
sion damage;
C. The susceptibility of the
proposed development and its
contents to flood damage and
the effect of such damage on
the individual owner;
D. The importance of the
services provided by the pro-
posed development to the
E. The availability of alter-
native locations for the pro-
posed development which are
not subject to flooding or ero-
sion damage;
F. The compatibility of the
proposed development with
existing and anticipated devel-
G.The relationship of the
proposed development to the
comprehensive plan and flood
plain management program of
the area;
H. The safety of access to
the proposed development in
times of flood for ordinary and
emergency vehicles;
I. The expected heights,
velocity, duration, rate of rise,
and sediment transport of the
flood waters expected at the
site of the proposed develop-
ment; and,
J. The costs of providing
governmental services during
and after flood conditions, in-
cluding maintenance and re-
pair of public utilities and facili-
ties, such as sewer, gas, elec-
trical and water systems, and
streets and bridges.
Certain conditions shall be met
prior to approval of a Variance:
A. Generally, Variances
may be issued for development
on a lot of one-half acre or less
in size, contiguous to and sur-
rounded by lots with existing
structures constructed below
the base flood level, providing
the foregoing considerations
have been taken into account.
B. Variances may be is-
sued for the repair or rehabili-
tation of historic structures
upon a determination that the
proposed repair or rehabilita-
tion will not preclude the struc-
ture’s continued designation as
a historic structure and the
variance is the minimum nec-
essary to preserve the historic
character and design of the
C. Variances shall not be
issued within any designated
floodway if any increase in
flood levels during the base
flood discharge would result.
D. Variances shall only be
issued upon a determination
that the variance is the mini-
mum necessary, considering
the flood hazard, to afford re-
lief, and upon:
1. A showing of good
and sufficient cause;
2. A determination that
failure to grant the variance
would result in exceptional
hardship to the applicant; and,
3. A determination that
the granting of a variance will
not result in increased flood
heights, additional threats to
public safety, extraordinary
public expense, create nui-
sances, cause fraud on or vic-
timization of the public as iden-
tified in the foregoing consider-
ations or conflict with existing
local laws or ordinances.
E. Any applicant to whom
a Variance is granted shall be
given written notice of the spe-
cific action taken and of the fact
that the cost of flood insurance
will be commensurate with the
increased risk resulting from
the varied requirement(s).
A violation of any of the pro-
visions of this Ordinance is
punishable by a fine not ex-
ceeding one hundred dollars,
or by imprisonment for a period
not exceeding thirty days, or by
both such fine and imprison-
ment. Each day of such viola-
tion shall constitute a separate
