President Wally Hoffman of the
Eastern Pennington County Am-
bulance District opened the Mon-
day, June 17 meeting.
Bills totaling in the amount of
$16,007.43 from May 7 - June 7
were approved to be paid by the
board after Hoffman asked who
Nordian Administration was. Sec-
retary/Treasurer Carolynn Ander-
son said, due to a error made by

district will have to send the
money back to Nordian Adminis-
(Editoral: Several questions
about the Wall School and Impact
Aid program were posed to me to
find the anwers to. I hope this arti-
cle anwers those questions.)
The Wall School District covers
approximately 844,800 acres and
of the total acreage approximately
270,000 acres are within the fed-
eral boundaries of the Badlands
National Park and the Buffalo Na-
tional Grasslands. Due to the large
amount of acres which have been
taken off the tax roll the Federal
Government compensates the Wall
School District along with other
school districts in the area with
payments called Impact Aid. The
Wall School District recives com-
pensation for only 46,500 acres.

ments for Federal Property are

inal Investigation, at the request
of the South Dakota Highway Pa-

officer involved shooting in Rapid City
trol and the Pennington County
Sheriff ’s Office, is investigating
the officer involved shooting that
occurred June 17, 2013.
The incident took place near
South Dakota Highway 1416 and
164th Avenue in rural Pennington
The suspect, Travis Will Ross,
43, has been admitted to the hos-
pital for gunshot wounds.
The incident began after a call to
Emergency Services Communica-
tions Center of a possible intoxi-
cated driver on Interstate 90.
A Pennington County Sheriff ’s
Office deputy located the vehicle
and a pursuit ensued. Shortly
thereafter, a second Pennington
County Sheriff ’s deputy and a
South Dakota Highway Patrol
trooper became involved in the
Spike strips were deployed and
a felony stop was conducted.
The incident escalated when
Ross produced a weapon, which re-
sulted in Pennington County
Deputies Robert Schoeberl and
Jamin Hartland and South Dakota
Highway Patrol Trooper Clayton
Heinrich firing their duty weapons
striking Ross.
Ross currently has an active
warrant for a parole violation.
He was paroled from a felony
DUI conviction on November 30,
2012, but listed as an absconder on
March 27, 2013.
At the completion of the investi-
gation, the South Dakota Division
of Criminal Investigation will

Anderson will revise the budget
to reflect all the accounts and will
close out the old checking account
at the end of the year.
Hoffman noted the ambulance
district is doing good in following
the budget. Anderson noted she
will put together a proposed
budget for the July meeting.
A public meeting will be held
July 16 to explain the special as
burden of school districts with
large amounts of non-taxable, Fed-
eral land. In order to receive a pay-
ment, the school district must be
able to prove that the Federal gov-
ernment took land off the tax rolls
that was worth at least 10 percent
of the total value of the district at
that time of the government's ac-
quisition. The amount of funding a
district receives is based on a pres-
ent valuation of the Federal prop-
erty, which is derived from adja-
cent parcels in the school district.
Congress has funded this grant
annually since the inception of the
1940 Impact Aid law.”
The school district recently re-
ceived their 2013 Impact Aid pay-
ment of $602,075. The school is fi-
nally caught up with payments. At
times it has taken up to a couple of
years for the school to receive any
money from the federal govern-

In 2004 the district built a new
school at the price tag of $5.3 mil-
lion. They fianaced the project
through Limited Tax General Ob-
ligation Certificates and also used
Federal Impact Aid to pay for the
construction of the school.
Wikipedia also states, “The Im-
pact Aid law also provides for pay-
ments to school districts that need
assistance with capital expendi-
tures for construction activities be-
cause they educate large numbers
of children who live on Federal
land and because of the difficulty
of raising local revenue through
bonds for capital projects due to
the inability to tax Federal prop-

a formula grant or a discretionary
grant subject to competition.

Priorities for the discretionary
grants are generally based on a
low ability for the applicant to
raise revenue for capital improve-
ments and emergency conditions
at the school to be repaired or re-
built. School construction grants
were funded under the American
Recovery and Reinvestment Act of
2009. In fiscal Year 2011, Congress
funded only formula grants.”

The school was recently notified
as of June 1, 2013 they can pay the
certificates off. There is currently

Thursday, June 27 where they will
decide to pay the certificates off or
proceed to make payments for the
next five years.

since 2007 is at two percent, before
then is was at three percent.

The story of western South
Dakota's role in national defense
during the Cold War will get a big-
ger audience under legislation ap-
proved this week by the U.S. Sen-
The Senate voted unanimously
Wednesday to approve the Minute-
man Missile Historic Site Bound-
ary Modification Act, S.459, which
authorizes the transfer of 29 acres
of U.S. Forest Service land near
Wall to the National Park Service
for a visitor center and parking.
Sen. Tim Johnson, D-S.D., said
the existing historic site "provides
a unique window into the history
of the Cold War."
A visitor center would allow the
Senate approves transfer of land for
Minuteman Missile visitor center
National Park Service to "more
fully tell the story of this historic
site to visitors from around the
world," Johnson said.
Sen. John Thune, R-S.D., said
the historic site is "a reminder of
the role that South Dakota played
in the Cold War arms race."
The visitors center will "make a
piece of South Dakota's past more
accessible to students of history
from around the globe," he said.
The act now goes to the U.S.
House, where Rep. Kristi Noem, R-
S.D., pledged to push for its pas-

The third annual South Dakota
Timed Event Championship
(SDTEC) will be held August 31 -
September 1 in Huron at the
South Dakota State Fair.
“We’ve been nothing but im-
pressed by the quality of competi-
tion and level of fan support,” said
Jason Edleman with SDTEC.
“This is truly the area’s finest
youth rodeo talent and they de-
serve recognition.”
The area’s elite will compete in
six timed events, including tie-
down calf roping, barrel racing,
team roping, goat tying, break-
away roping and steer wrestling.
Any rodeo youth from across the
country, ages 14 - 18 are eligible to
compete for the title, but entries
are limited.
A horse trailer and seven event
saddles will be awarded to the best
performers as they compete for the
Youth Timed Event title.
The event was started in 2011
by Edleman and Steven Birkholtz
The Game, Fish and Parks Li-
cense Office has announced that
the application process for all
South Dakota deer hunting sea-
sons is now open.
Applications may be submitted

The SDTEC continues to bring
in over 100 contestants, their fam-
ilies and fans to the State Fair,
making it one of the premier
events for spectators at the fair.
“This really is the only youth
rodeo event at the State Fair, let
alone in the Midwest, and it draws
a huge crowd,” said Birkholtz.

from across the state and nation to
be at the SD Timed Event Cham-
Last year’s champion, Casey
Packer of Sturgis, took home a

marked the fifteenth year of recog-

(SDHSAA) of athletic teams and

The Activities Association recog-
nizes over 300 high school athletic
teams and fine arts groups from
schools across the state which
have achieved the “Academic
Achievement Team Award” for the
spring season.
Any varsity athletic team or fine
arts group achieving a combined
grade point average of 3.0 or
higher is eligible to receive the
SDHSAA Academic Achievement
Team awards announced for SDHSAA Fine Arts and
Athletic Academic achievement in 2013 spring season
Team Award.
Numerous independent studies
conducted by the U.S. Department
of Education and major universi-
ties continue to demonstrate that
students who are involved in inter-
scholastic fine arts and athletic ac-
tivities tend to have higher grades
in school, have better school atten-
dance, and have fewer disciplinary
problems than non-participating
These studies clearly show that
high school students learn valu-
able lessons and lifetime skills, not
only inside the classroom, but also
through their participation in fine
arts programs and school athletics.
In addition, many studies indi-
cate that students who are in-
volved in multiple activities tend
to have even better academic suc-
cess than students that are in-
volved in only one activity.
This award program is spon-
sored by the SDHSAA to recognize
the academic success of the teams
and to encourage all students to
excel in the classroom.
The Wall School received awards
for the following: Girls Track
and Field Team; Large Group
Chorus; Yearbook; Boys Golf
Team; Student Council; Large
Group Band; Boys Track and
Field Team and Girls Golf

The seventh annual Philip Invi-
tational Matched Bronc Ride, Fri-
day, June 14, was again a success
by almost everyone’s standards.
The Philip roping arena was the
site of 25 top Professional Rodeo
Cowboys Association cowboys try-
ing to survive three progressive
rounds of bronc riding to take top
With 50 of the best, or up-and-
coming, broncs available, the ac-
tion was hot, unpredictable and
unforgettable. Livestock compa-
nies supplying the broncs were
Three Hills Rodeo of Bernard,
Iowa, Korkow Rodeo of Pierre,
S.D., and Burns Rodeo of Laramie,
The first round of the bronc ride
was full of crowd-pleasing high
scores. Cole Elshere, Faith, topped
the pack with 81 on Bandito Gold.
Jesse Bail, Camp Crook, earned 79
points on top of Satin Sheets. Ryan
Elshere, Elm Springs, spirited 78
points with Grey Ghost. Ty
Thompson, Wanblee, rode Dia-
mond Trail and J.J. Elshere, Here-
ford, rode Storm Warning, both for
77. Jeremy Meeks, Alzada, played
Jukebox and Louie Brunson, Inte-
rior, rode a reride option horse,
both for 76 points. Troy Crowser,
Whitewood, stayed on Sweetheart
and Delbert “Shorty” Garrett,
Dupree, stayed on Kosheese to
both earn 74 points. Getting 73
points each, Jade Blackwell, Rapid
City, stuck to Boogers Pet and
Kaden Deal, Red Scaffold, held on
to Chrome Plated. Dawson Jan-
dreau, Kennebec, made the cut in
order to go into the second round
by riding Harry Mary for 71
The progressive round pitted the
12 remaining cowboys against up-
and-coming livestock that may be
somewhat green, but have energy
and possibilities to go far in the
bucking bronc arena. J. Elshere
stayed on top and rode a wild-
bucking Blind Date for 79 points.
Bail went Haywire for 77. Cole
Elshere hung all over Screwdriver
and Ryan Elshere survived Morn-

ing After, both for 76 points. Gar-
rett put his score of 75 in Dixie
Cup. Making the cut to move on to
the short go was Jandreau, earn-
ing 74 points on a reride option.
In the final round of only six
cowboys, J. Elshere could not stay
on, but went out with a Blaze of
Glory. Garrett rode Paint Chip for
75 points, but found that even this
respectfully high score could not
hold up with this caliber of bronc
riders. Jandreau kept on his Big
Wig and Cole Elshere did it Span-
ish Style, both for 78 points each,
but even this high of a score wasn’t
good enough. Bail and a re-ride
horse together scored 79, only to
also be beat out. Ryan Elshere
stayed tied to the bucking bronc
Fraid Knot to earn 80 points and
the top title for the 2013 Philip In-

Food poisoning can spoil sum-
mer picnics and cookouts but sim-
ple precautions can prevent it,
says a state health official.
Bacteria in food multiply faster
whenever temperatures rise above
40F, said Bill Chalcraft, health
protection administrator for the
Department of Health.
Thats why handling and storing
food safely is so important during
hot weather.
In 2012, South Dakota reported
493 cases of the food-borne ill-
nesses E. coli, Salmonella, and
To date in 2013, 157 cases of
such illnesses have been reported.
Food-borne illnesses often go unre-
ported so the actual number of
cases is likely higher.
Mild or severe diarrhea, fever,
vomiting and abdominal pain are
common symptoms of food-borne
Most people will recover at home
without medication but some peo-
ple may need fluids to prevent de-
Chalcraft recommended the fol-
lowing steps when cooking out-
•Start with hand-washing. Use
moist disposable towelettes if soap
and water aren’t available.
•Keep raw foods separate from
cooked foods. If a plate held raw
meat, don’t use it again without
first washing it in hot, soapy
•Marinate foods in the refriger-
ator, not on the counter or out-
doors, and don't reuse marinade.
For use as a sauce, set some aside
before adding food.
•Use a food thermometer to
make sure food is cooked thor-
oughly. Cook hamburgers to 160F
Keep summer gatherings free of food poisoning
and chicken to at least 165F.
•Keep hot food hot (140F or
above) and cold food cold (40F or
•Refrigerate or freeze leftover
food promptly. Don't let perishable
foods sit out longer than two
hours; no more than one hour if
temperatures are above 90F.

Elm Springs News
Submitted by Shelia Trask
Residents of Elm Spring are
just starting to hay but they wel-
comed a rain on Saturday
evening in most (not all) of the
community! It was preceded by
high winds but no hail to speak
of. High winds damaged Gary
English's wall tent on the Two
Rivers. Fortunately no one was
camping in it that night!

She spent a few days with niece

binder and Jes Harstad and
Larry Gravatt met for lunch in
Wall. Larry brought her out to
the ranch to spend a few days
with Larry and Peggy. Cherry

very good time being able to see

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by
Lloyd & Margee Willey
The days are going too quickly.
Everyone’s lament, I guess. It re-
minds me of times years ago when
I had said I didn’t want to go here
or there with them, then as the car
was pulling away, I changed my
mind, running after the car calling
desperately, “Wait, wait”! Now it’s
time I’m wanting to “wait, wait”.
Another futile effort. I do know
time and ?? wait for no man, no
one, yet I keep hoping it will slow
down just a little!
My apologies for not checking in
for current events in the life and
times in Wasta. But, Fourth of
July plans are coming right along.
More about that later.
Last week’s news we shared the
quilt making by Barb Crawford
where she used photos of grandfa-
ther Albert Eisenbraun and his
children and their families. The
quilt was auctioned at the Eisen-
braun family reunion and brought
$400.00! The highest bidder was
Mark Eisenbraun, Barb’s father’s
brother. What a nice piece of fam-
ily history he bought. Some things
truly are priceless. Barb may get
requests from other cousins!
Friday evening brought a nice
crowd to a little girl’s birthday
party. Kylee Smid celebrated her
first birthday with Wasta friends
and Wall friends at the community
hall in Wasta. Kylee slept until it
was time for birthday song and
cake and ice cream and woke smil-
ing and happy! Sister Natalee is in
Phoenix with Aunt Lisa (Derek’s
sister) but Uncle Dayton was there
to lead the singing with friends
Kaylen and Tyson Spotted Bear
joining in. It was a fun evening for
all ages…one to ??? Did you know
we have a friendly new person in
Wasta? Name of Kelsey. So “Wel-
come to Wasta” in the words of
Helen Kalkbrenner.
A meeting Friday at Mary
Lewis’ home of the park committee
is in part if you want to be involved
in the park, show up July 1st at
7:00 p.m. Or call Moni Grenstiner
at 993-3535. We keep things sim-
ple in Wasta!
The Nachtigall family had their
reunion in Wasta at the park and
community hall, Saturday evening
and Sunday. Kind of a brief but
whopper of a storm that blew
through Saturday about 6:00 p.m.
The sky after was a beautiful goldy
orange off to the south with a big
half hoop of a rainbow. It was so
beautiful that the storm that
caused it was nearly forgotten. Un-
less of course you were searching
for cover with a crock pot full of
baked beans and a bag of fresh
rolls under your arm!
Sunday came for the Willey’s
and a trip to Kadoka to visit with
cousins, Danny and Paula and a
stop at the Pearl Hotel. It is won-
derful what those dedicated to “re-
store the Pearl” have accom-
plished. While there, Paula Vo-
gelgesang told us about “Quilts
with Love” — a project of quilters
across the U.S.A. making and
sending quilts to those in the mili-
tary in Iraq and Afghanistan —
something like 3700 of them!
Paula knows Dorothy Bathel
whom, she said, has joined the
“Quilts with Love” project.
Also there was Lola Riggins. She
is enjoying writing news for the
Kadoka Press, is doing well and
looks great.
Of course we must give a re-
minder — 4th of July will be here
— REALLY QUICKLY! Come for a
day of fun, participate in the pa-
rade, eat lunch with us, play some
silly games with water balloons
and stay for the talent show at
7:00. Sounds like too much fun,
but it is true!
For talent show, Dorothy
Shearer at 279-2198 or Margee
993-3149. Remember there are NO
critics in Wasta, only appreciators!
Until then…Happy Trails!

Wall News
Gathered by Frances Poste
Thursday Kalie Kjerstad and
Charlene Kjerstad went to Rapid
City to pick up supplies for she and
Conrad's house. Then Kalie took
Charlene to the National Ceme-
tery near Sturgis for the funeral of
Muriel Kjos, formerly of Philip,
who was living in an assisted liv-
ing center near Spearfish for the
last few years. She became ill and
her son moved her to the Hospice
House in Gillette where she died
Monday. She was Armista Se-
bade's sister and Charlene had
worked with her at the bank in
Philip years ago. Charlene named
their daughter Muriel after her.
Muriel joined Charlene and they
had lunch after the funeral service
with nieces, Marsha Lytle, Sandra
and Everett Lerew along with the
other family members and friends
who attended the service. After the
service Muriel brought Charlene
back to Wall and spent the night
with her parents. On Friday
Muriel attended Zane Nelson's fu-
neral in Philip with Brennan and
Laurie and children. She returned
to Custer where she is living this
summer and is employed at the
Alpine Inn Restaurant in Hill City.
Muriel graduated with an elemen-
tary education teaching degree
from BHSU in May at Spearfish
and is going to be teaching 5th
grade in the Bennett County Ele-
mentary School starting in August.
Friday, Charlene Kjerstad
picked up her sister, Candee Kit-
terman and they traveled onto
Rapid City where they picked up
their sisters, Cathy Johnson, Cleo
Rowe and Cindy Severson at
Cathy's house in Rapid Valley.
They drove to Denver, Colo., and
met their sister, Claudette Raczuk,
Lake Havasu, AZ. and spent the
weekend together. Saturday, they
all attended the Colorado Renais-
sance Festival in Larkspur, Colo.
They had a fun time together and
plan on making it an annual get
together. Claudette flew home
Sunday morning and the rest of
them drove home to South Dakota.
Virginia Blom visited friends in
Wall on Thursday and Friday. The
Bloms moved to Yankton several
years ago where their son, Gary
and his wife Casey and family live.
Virginia was the librarian in Wall
for many years and her many
friends in Wall were so pleased to
see her.
Carla Brucklacher drove to
Greeley, Colo., on June 13 to visit
son Matthew and family. We at-
tended nine year old Alissa’s gym-
nastic meet in Aurora, Colo.,
where she placed in all events and
was fourth in All-Around. Spent a
nice Father’s Day with Matthew
golfing and swimming. Monday,
the 17th, we attended 12 year old
Maylen’s swim competition where
she placed firth in Butterfly and
Individual Medley; second in
freestyle and swam in two relays
that placed first. Tuesday, Carla
and the little girls went to Love-
land for lunch, shopping; a movie
and to take photos. Carla returned
home on Wednesday, June 19.
Jennifer Tietsort came down to
Wall and picked up her father
Mark and he spent the weekend
with the Tietsort family in Custer.
They had a barbecue, attended
church and the Crazy Horse
Alissa Brucklacher placed first
in bars, vault and beam and sec-
ond on floor in her gymnastic meet
on June 7, taking first in All-
Around. She placed again this
weekend in Silverthorne, Colo.,
taking second in All-Around.
Kurth and Sherry DeLand came
from Nebraska on Thursday. They
brought Janis Bush down from
New Underwood for lunch on Fri-
day, taking her back the same day.
Ritch, Kara Nelson and girls came
from Davey, Neb., and visited
Janis at New Underwood. They
joined the DeLands with their
project of clearing out Janis’ apart-
ment at Prairie Village. The Nel-
sons left for home on Sunday and
the DeLands on Monday.
You never know who you will see
at the Drug Store. On Saturday, I
would have passed by Cheri (Pe-
terson) Knoll if she had not spoken
to me. She, her husband Dale and
family were on their way back
home to Kansas after visiting her
parents, Jim and Linda, near
Union Center. She said her oldest
sister Verna had been visiting
there, also, but had left for her
home on Wednesday.
Theme Meal was last Tuesday,
the 18th, at the Village. Four ta-
bles held all of us, so numbers are
down. Senior Citizen’s potluck sup-
per was on Thursday evening —
tables were laden with lots of good-
ies, especially the dessert table.
You can tell I have a “sweet tooth”.
Bingo was played after supper.
Dora Mae Jensen was on vaca-
tion the last couple of weeks, or
more. She left her home in
Escalon, Calif., and went to Den-
ver to spend a week with her
daughter and family, Nick and
Robin Feller. Since then she vis-
ited Cherry and Byron Denke,
Larry Gravatt’s and friends
around Wall. She was going on to
Dickinson, N.D., on Friday where
her sister Helen Gabbert and fam-
ily live before catching a flight
from Rapid City to return home. It
was nice to see her, seems that liv-
ing in California is good for her.
It is that season again — cotton
is blowing everywhere!
The worst of the storms might
have missed us this past week but
we certainly have had a lot of
wind. Especially very early on
Thursday morning — branches
covering a lot of the yard, the next
day was a testimony to that! Per-
haps it is the species I have. Fri-
day morning was foggy and drizzly
but it changed to a good shower.
Hope you had a look at “Super-
moon”. It was said to be bigger and
brighter because it was closer to
earth. If you missed it, it will hap-
pen again in 2014 so they say.
Wall’s birthday celebration is
getting closer. Keep July 13th in
Have a good week!

Jesus is 'the light oI the world,¨ and as believers, we are
a reIlection oI Him. It is our responsibility to get the word
out about Jesus and live a liIe like Him. By serving as His
beacons and setting an example, Jesus` light will radiate
through us and most certainly bring others to Him.
Ye are the light of the world. A city that is
set on an hill cannot be hid.
Matthew 5:14 (K1J)
,z...z1 ¡.,zz ¿zz zz,.zz 1.¿.
Life is so good! Life is especially
good when we are making the right
kinds of decisions-decisions that
are giving us the outcomes that we
are the striving for in our goals,
dreams and desires.
Often I have made what I con-
sider to be great decisions, such as
my choice in my life partner, and
dear wife, Vicki. Now that was a
good decision! Choosing to live here
in rural America and raise a family
has proved to be yet another awe-
some decision.
However, there have been many
times in my decision making over
the years I have experienced near-
fatal error-a total meltdown in life
processes. Over and over again, I
have been reminded that I need to
gather all the facts before I launch
into something. There is no ques-
tion I have been a slow learner.
Even recently, I made a couple of
decisions that have not rendered
the best of results in my business
and personal life. But I am encour-
aged to know I am still learning
and growing in my ability to make
wiser decisions-and that's what
As I have analyzed the decision-
making process and the challenge
that most people have regarding
making wise decisions, a couple of
questions come to mind. Why are
we so afraid to ask questions? and
Why are we so eager to shoot from
the hip to make quick decisions?
Generally, good decision-making
is not something any of us can or
should do in a hurry, and it is not
something we have to do all by our-
selves. We need to get input from
others, and be willing to research
the issue from more than one
source or resource.
Whenever we need clarification
on something, we should never hes-
itate to ask. In fact, we must be
willing to ask lots of questions until
we are satisfied that we have all
the information we need to make a
good decision. Of course this takes
more time, but boy, what a savings
considering the major headaches
we will save ourselves in the long
run. Believe me, slowing down and
taking the extra time required to
dig a little deeper into things, ask-
ing ourselves and others as many
questions as we can, is the key to
making intelligent and informed
Allow me to encourage you today
to get all the facts when you need
to purchase something, make a life
change, or enter into a relationship
of any kind. Get those facts before
you proceed

How the Badlands Alumni Association came to be
Think reunion — plan reunion
These were the guidelines of the
Badlands Alumni Association when
formed in 1973. Through much per-
suasion and cooperation from R.F.
Lewis (local educator and editor)
for several years prior, a small
group of graduates from Wall and
Quinn met at Eileen Flatt’s home
on May 4th to form such an organ-
ization for all alumni and teachers
of the Wall, Quinn and Wasta High
Officers elected were Eileen Bab-
cock Flatt (W. ‘44), president; Twila
Galbraith Shelton (W. ‘42), vice
president; Evelyn MacGregor Pat-
terson (W. ‘33), secretary/treasurer.
Directors were Jacqueline Smoot
Paulsen (W. ‘44), Marjorie Gueth-
lein Willuweit (Q ‘35), Shari Dartt
Keyser (W. ‘60), Leah Sieh Paulsen
(Ws. ‘42), Howard Connolly (Q. ‘23),
and Bud Bruce (Ws. ‘37).
Mr. Lewis gave information on
how his class promoted reunions in
Hiawatha, Kan.
It was decided to honor every
ten-year graduate, corresponding
with the year. Letters to only mem-
bers of the classes and faculty
being honored, will be sent each
year, so they can plan their vaca-
tions accordingly for the July re-
The reunion will be held at the
Wall School gym each year on the
Saturday night of Wall’s birthday
celebration, which usually falls on
the weekend closest to the Tenth of
A member of each honored class
will be contacted to participate in
the program. Local class members
will be asked to help locate ad-
dresses and with letter mailing.
The reunions will be open to
everyone - you need not have at-
tended or graduated from any of
the three schools to attend. This in-
formal get-together of friends,
neighbors, and relatives will be a
time to spend visiting and renew-
ing old friendships.
Because membership is auto-
matic upon graduation, there will
be no dues or membership fees.
Any help, suggestions and dona-
tions to help defray expenses for
postage, decorations, prizes, etc.,
will be appreciated.
It took Eileen several months to
get names of teachers who taught,
or students who had graduated as
some of the records from the Quinn
and Wasta schools were not avail-
able. The list is still not complete
and many of the addresses change
from year to year. Please help the
association with this.
The first officers and directors
served actively for ten years. When
Twila was no longer with us, Eve-
lyn became vice-president and
Shari was the treasurer.
We hope Reunion Day will be-
come a time to look forward to each
year, and will grow into a memo-
rable day in our school of life.

Helen Muriel R. Kjos____________________________
Helen Muriel R. Kjos, 93, for-
merly of Philip, S.D., passed away
Monday, June 17, 2013, at the
Hospice House of Campbell
County in Gillette, Wyo.
Helen was born February 12,
1920, in Rapid City to Ned and
Lera (Young) Ronning.
Her father Ned Ronning, was
born in Bergen, Norway, and she
was proud of her Norwegian her-
itage. She was raised with her
three siblings in the “Green” house
on the hill in Philip. As a young
girl, she enjoyed working with her
father, Ned in the family grocery
store and meat market. Her father
raised and bought cattle for use in
the meat market and as such they
always had horses and animals at
the place. She and her siblings
spent much time riding the coun-
try side with their favorite ponies.
Muriel attended school in Philip,
graduating high school in 1938.
She attended business school in
Omaha, Neb., receiving a business
certificate. As a requirement in
business school, she learned short
hand which she remembered all of
her life. Even in her late years of
life she would write herself notes
in shorthand, unfortunately, she
was the only one who could read
them. She began her working ca-
reer in Mitchell, as assistant to a
group of attorneys. During World
War II, she moved to Washington,
D.C., where she worked for the
U.S. Navy in the war department.
She, along with two of her cousins,
lived with five other young women
in an apartment. They traveled ex-
tensively up and down the Atlantic
Coast while there. As the family
will remember she was never with-
out a camera as the boxes of pic-
tures remaining are a testament.
She married Charles Dail Lob-
dell in 1943, and to this union
were born two boys. They divorced
in 1953. As a single mother, Muriel
raised her boys with the help of
Grandpa Ned. She worked hard so
the boys would have the necessi-
ties and she was an excellent ex-
ample of an honest hard working
mother. The boys do not recall her
ever missing a day of work due to
sickness, even walking to work
when the weather would not per-
mit the rear wheel drive ‘50 Chevy
to go. She began working at the
First National Bank in Philip in
1954, retiring in 1985.
While in Philip, she made many
close friends and enjoyed a life
time of attending many types of
clubs and parties always willing to
help with what needed done. She
and her close friend, Carol, at-
tended school together in their
early years and remained the
dearest of friends their entire life,
even able to have a brief phone
conversation less than a day prior
to Muriel’s passing.
She spent countless hours with
her “craft projects.” She enjoyed
many, many hours with two of her
granddaughters teaching them to
make stationary with hot glue and
decorating them as well as her
“beading” projects many of which
are still in existence.
She married Lester Kjos in 1967
in Wall and they enjoyed 40 years
together. After they both retired,
they traveled extensively in the
Western United States, as well as
in Canada, Mexico and Hawaii.
She also traveled to Europe twice
and the United Kingdom twice to
visit her son, Bryan, who was in
the military. She was a lifetime
member of the Order of the East-
ern Star, holding many positions.
She traveled to Nova Scotia as
member of the Eastern Star as a
cultural exchange delegate and
made friends there that lasted a
lifetime. She was also a lifetime
member of the American Legion
Muriel is survived by two sons,
Bryan (Susan) Lobdell of Picker-
ington, Ohio, and Barry (Gayle)
Lobdell of Gillette; five grandchil-
dren, Jared Lobdell and partner,
Jennifer Williams, Amarillo,
Texas, Ashley (Dr. John) Tilley
Columbus, Ohio, Adam Lobdell,

Montgomery, Gillette; eight great-
grandchildren, Blake Lobdell,
J’Nai Lobdell, Tru Williams-Lob-
dell, Ella Rider, Eden Tilley, Travis
Tilley, Maya and Natalia Burns
and Samantha Montgomery.
She was preceded in death by
her husband, Lester; her parents;
two sisters; a brother; and a grand-

Summer Vegetables
and Fiber
Whether you choose to grow
your own or purchase them, the
summer season offers an abun-
dance of fresh, ripe vegetables.
Vegetables are loaded with vita-
mins and minerals, as well as fiber
necessary for a nutritious diet.
There are many summer vegeta-
bles to enjoy including zucchini,
bell peppers, broccoli, beets, cu-
cumbers, and eggplant, to name a

that are vital for health and main-
tenance of our bodies. During the

on your caloric needs.
Individuals, who generally eat
more vegetables and fruits as part
of an overall healthy diet, are
likely to have a reduced risk of
some chronic diseases including
heart disease, type 2 Diabetes and
digestive problems such as hemor-
rhoids and diverticulosis.
Vegetables provide fiber which
helps to efficiently move food
through the body.
Many vegetables have insoluble
fiber, known as roughage. This
type of fiber does not dissolve in
water, but can absorb water,
adding bulk and softness to the
stool which promotes regularity.
The American Dietetic Association
(http://www.eatright.org) recom-
mends that women consume 25
grams of fiber daily and 38 grams
daily for men. The amount of fiber
needed is reduced for adults over
50; women need 21 grams and men
30 grams.
Eating foods such as vegetables
that are lower in calories per cup,
instead of some other higher-calo-
rie food, may be useful in lowering
calorie intake.
Fiber also helps provide the feel-
ing of fullness which is helpful for
weight management.
Want to eat more vegetables and
increase your fiber?
There are so many ways to in-
crease vegetables in your diet.
Add chopped vegetables to your
soups, pizza and pizza sauce, try
grilled vegetables, have pre-cut
vegetables available at work and
at home in the refrigerator, use
fresh vegetables as dippers, and
give frozen vegetables a try.

the diet check out the University
of Missouri Extension’s publica-
tion, “Challenges and Choices Fit

Permanently abolishes punitive
tax on family farms, ranches, busi-
Senator John Thune (R-S.D.)
and Representative Kevin Brady
(R-Texas) re-introduced legisla-
tion to permanently repeal the fed-
eral estate tax, better known as
the death tax, to finally put an end
to this punitive tax on family
farms, ranches, and businesses
upon the death of an owner.
Thune and Brady’s bill, the
Death Tax Repeal Act of 2013 (S.
1183, H.R. 2429), is nearly identi-
cal to legislation introduced in the
112th Congress that garnered the
bipartisan support of 223 Repre-
sentatives and 38 Senators.
“The federal government has no
place forcing grieving families to
pay a tax on their loved one’s life
savings that has been built from
income already taxed when origi-
nally earned,” said Thune, Chair-
man of the Senate Republican
Conference and member of the
Senate Finance Committee.
“Currently more than 70 percent
of family businesses do not survive
to the second generation, and 90
percent of family businesses do not
survive to the third generation.
According to a study by former
CBO Director Douglas Holtz-
Eakin, repealing the death tax
Thune, Brady re-introduce bill to repeal death tax
would create 1.5 million additional
small business jobs and would
shave almost a percentage point
off the unemployment rate.
This tax punishes farmers and
entrepreneurs for a lifetime of
hard work. Death should not be a
taxable event, and I will continue
to work in Congress to see a per-
manent end to this unfair tax.”
“What kind of government
swoops in upon your death and
takes nearly half of the nest egg
you’ve spent your entire life build-
ing?” asked Brady, chairman of the
Joint Economic Committee and a
senior member of the House Ways
and Means Committee.
“The Death Tax remains the
number one reason family owned
farms and businesses don’t survive
to the next generation and it’s time
to end this immoral tax once and
for all in America.”
Thune and Brady’s bill is sup-
ported by the American Farm Bu-
reau Federation, Associated
Builders and Contractors, Na-
tional Association of Manufactur-
ers, National Federation of Inde-
pendent Business, 60 Plus Associ-
ation, Americans for Tax Reform,
Club for Growth, National Black
Chamber of Commerce, Interna-
tional Franchise Association, Na-
tional Taxpayers Union, American
Conservative Union, Family Busi-
ness Coalition, and many others.
Thune’s bill is cosponsored in
the Senate by Senators Kelly Ay-
otte (R-N.H.), John Barrasso (R-
Wyo.), Roy Blunt (R-Mo.), John
Boozman (R-Ark.), Saxby Chamb-
liss (R-Ga.), Dan Coats (R-Ind.),

Officials with the South Dakota
Game, Fish and Parks and Agri-
culture Departments are remind-
ing ranchers and producers to con-
tact either agency if they have un-
wanted prairie dogs.
The state’s prairie dog control
program is cooperatively funded
by GFP and SDDA. GFP manages
encroachment issues on private
lands which have been encroached
from adjacent public lands, while
SDDA manages complaints be-
tween private landowners.
“GFP will control prairie dogs
that have encroached onto private
land from adjacent public land,”
GFP Wildlife Damage Program

“Landowners who have encroach-
ment problems on their property
from adjacent public land must be
within one mile of the public land
and have at least 20 acres of actual

prairie dog colonies to be eligible
for assistance.”
Additionally, landowners must
contact GFP and report that they
have unwanted prairie dogs before
August 15, 2013. “GFP provides
assistance to many landowners
across western South Dakota,”
Fisk said. “This deadline allows
GFP sufficient time to coordinate
the logistics of our control pro-
If a landowner has a complaint
regarding prairie dogs that are en-
croaching from public land, GFP
must be contacted at 605-773-5913
to request control. Once eligibility
has been verified, GFP field staff
or a department representative
will control the invading colony on
the private land later this fall. All
complaints must be received by the
August 15, 2013 deadline.
Landowners that are experienc-
ing encroachment from adjoining
private land need to contact SDDA
or their local county weed and pest
board. If the colony is encroaching
from private land, a signed written
complaint must be made.
There are two methods to file a
The first option is for the ef-

The Fight for South Dakota
Agriculture Continues
As South Dakotans, we all un-
derstand just how unpredictable
the weather in our state can be,
which is one of many reasons why
our agriculture community de-
serves the certainty that long-term
agriculture policy can provide.
Because of its importance to
South Dakota, and to our nation, I
am incredibly disappointed that
the House of Representatives
failed to pass a five-year Farm Bill
this week. After hours of debate in
both the Agriculture Committee
and on the House floor, a majority
of lawmakers failed to do the right
thing and vote in favor of this bill.
Decades ago, we decided that it
was important that we grow our
own food in this country – and a
Farm Bill provides the policies
that help make that possible.
This bill is more than providing
a safety net for our producers; it’s
a national security issue. By not
passing a Farm Bill, we put our
own food security in jeopardy be-
cause the moment we let another
country feed us is the moment we
let another country control us.
234 lawmakers, a combination
of Republicans and Democrats,
stood up on the House floor, voted
no and decided to put politics be-
fore people.
We were able to pass this bill out
of the Agriculture Committee with
strong bipartisan support, but un-
fortunately, politics came first for
many lawmakers this week.
While a majority of Republicans
voted for the bill, there were too
many that walked away because it
didn’t cut enough.
And only 24 Democrats voted for
the bill on Thursday, largely be-
cause the cuts and reforms to the
food stamp program were too
much, although these cuts were
less than three percent of the pro-
gram’s budget.
I may be frustrated by this out-
come, but we have to move forward
to ensure that all Americans have
a safe, reliable and affordable food
We need to find a way to make
farm and food policy more account-
able to taxpayers. This bill would
have saved taxpayers nearly $40
billion, made necessary reforms to
crop insurance to make sure that
farmers had skin in the game
while providing a safety net, and
would have maintained the in-
tegrity of the food stamp program.
Failure to pass the Farm Bill
means we’re stuck with the status
quo – with no meaningful reforms
or savings.
The next step is unclear, but I
remain committed to passing this
Farm Bill and remain hopeful we
will be able to regroup in the com-
ing days.
We need to figure out a way to
bring a bipartisan majority of the
House together in support of this
The South Dakota Department
of Environment and Natural Re-
sources requests water quality
data as part of its process to com-
plete a biennial assessment of
South Dakota’s lakes and streams.
The 2014 Integrated Report
must be completed and submitted
to the U.S. Environmental Protec-
tion Agency by April 1, 2014. The
report provides an assessment of
the quality of South Dakota’s sur-
face water resources and identifies
the impaired waters that require a
total maximum daily loads
A total maximum daily load cal-
culates the amount of pollution a
waterbody can receive and still
meet water quality standards
along with supporting assigned
beneficial uses.
Once TMDLs are determined,
local, state and federal activities
can be directed toward improving
the quality of the waterbody.

To develop a comprehensive list,
the department is soliciting water
quality data to help determine the
quality of South Dakota’s waters.
Chemical, physical and biological
data will be considered.
Beach closure information, in-
cluding date, duration and water
quality results is also requested.

Tagged Lake Oahe salmon:
from silver to gold
The South Dakota Game, Fish
and Parks Department is asking
anglers to assist in an investigation
evaluating how varying stocking
salmon at different locations might
improve survival and catch of Chi-
nook salmon on Lake Oahe, and
anglers could earn cash in the
GFP is encouraging anglers to
turn in heads of tagged Chinook
salmon caught on Lake Oahe and
the Oahe Tailwaters. Anglers who
return salmon heads from tagged
salmon will be entered into a draw-
ing in which ten, $100 rewards will
be issued each calendar year, with
a maximum of three rewards per
person per year. The annual draw-
ing for winners of the $100 prizes
will occur by January 1.
“Research projects are underway
evaluating salmon return to an-
glers. Reporting of tagged salmon
by anglers is a crucial part of the
research,” GFP fisheries biologist
Robert Hanten said.
According to Hanten, thousands
of specially-tagged Chinook salmon
have been stocked in Lake Oahe. A
small, coded-wire tag, only a mil-
limeter long and the diameter of
human hair, was implanted in
these fish. Although tags cannot be
seen by anglers, tagged fish can be
identified by the absence of a tiny
fin on their back.
"Salmon have a small fleshy-
lobed adipose fin directly in front of
their tail, but this fin is removed as
part of the tagging process,"
Hanten said. "If anglers catch a
salmon missing the adipose fin, we
would like them to turn in the fresh
or frozen head of that salmon at the
GFP Fort Pierre District Office,
Oahe Marina, Spring Creek Resort
and Deep Water Marina, Carl’s
Bait Shop, or West Whitlock Recre-
ation Area.”
Information on where and when
a salmon was caught along with
the angler’s address and phone
number must be included when
submitting salmon heads. In addi-
tion, a coded-wire tag must be
found in the head of the fish by
GFP staff to result in entry into the
“Even though every salmon
missing an adipose fin was im-
planted with a coded-wire tag,
some fish lose their tags over time,
meaning not all fish caught by an-
glers without an adipose fin will
contain a tag,” Hanten said.

trict Office, 20641 SD Hwy 1806,
