Gov. Dennis Daugaard will be
convening the South Dakota Leg-
islature for a special legislative
session on Saturday, June 22 to ob-
tain legislative support to use fis-
cal year-end funds for the new
State Veterans Home in Hot
Springs.
After the State Engineer opened
the bids for the project, it became
apparent that the amount esti-
mated by the architect would not
cover the cost of the Veterans
Home.
“My priority is to build a
durable, quality facility for our vet-
erans – they deserve nothing less,”
said Gov. Daugaard in an email to

The newest programs at the Na-
tional Grasslands Visitor Center
(NGVC) will bring Smokey Bear to
Wall during the summer tourism
season.
Beginning on Friday, June 7,
Smokey will walk up Main Street
every Friday morning (except July
5) through August 16.
He will be present for Story
Time at the Wall Community Li-
brary starting at 9:00 a.m.
Smokey will also make appear-
ances at Badlands National Park
on Wednesday nights (June 19 –
August 15).
He will greet visitors at the
Cedar Pass Amphitheater from
8:15 – 8:45 p.m. Evening programs
will then be given by Forest Serv-
ice and Park Service personnel.
On Thursday evenings, Smokey
will be at the National Grasslands
Visitor Center, 708 Main Street in
Wall, beginning June 20 (except
July 4).
Visitors have an opportunity to
take photographs with Smokey
from 7:00 – 7:30 p.m. and to stay
for short presentations on the Na-
tional Grasslands, the Minuteman
Missile National Historic Site and
Badlands National Park.
The Forest Service and National
Park Service will continue the
Hidden In Plain Sight tours
throughout the summer.
These tours explore the history
of the Minuteman Missile Na-
Surrounded by badlands that
are 300 feet tall, this basin is only
two miles wide and five miles long,
yet was home to a number of
homesteaders.
The Tyree Basin which lies in
the Badlands National Park
Wilderness area was one of the
last areas homesteaded in South
Dakota.
The land proved to be one of the
harshest areas to tame due to the
lack of water and wood. These ne-
cessities would be the downfall of
the homesteaders.
But the families came not know-
ing what lay ahead of them. Jess
Harris and Joe Miner were the
first to stake a claim in the Sage
Creek area around 1902.
The Harris claim was between
two branches of the creek while
Miner was about three miles down
the creek.
Other homesteaders to the area
were: John H. Bobier, Gilbert Bo-
bier, Kimballs, Clarence Pyle,
Batchelders, Charles Wyant lived
on the south side of the left fork in
Sage Creek, George Gunn, Ed
Overton, Tom Freit and the
Tyrees.
Logs and lumber were hauled
from the Black Hills to build farm-
steads. Livestock consisted of cat-
tle, horses, poultry and whatever
the homesteaders had in their pos-
session when they made the wagon
ride to the area.
Gardens were planted along
with other crops and hay was put
up.
Fruit was abundant in the wild
thickets along with wild grapes.
Water had to be hauled by a
team and wagon or a stone-boat
which is a type of sled made to
haul heavy objects.
Laundry was hauled to the creek
to be washed.
The families encountered prairie
rattlers, diamond backs, copper
heads, puff adders and even a cor-
ral snake.
Grey wolves were also a threat
to the livestock and if hungry
enough would come into their
yards to make a kill.
Old Three Toes was a famous
wolf who had a $500 bounty. He
was well known from Kansas to
Manitoba.
When hay wasn’t abundant the
men would take apart their mow-
ers and haul them to the top of
Hay Butte by hand. Then the men
would lead the horses up to mow
the hay. A chute was constructed to
send the hay down. The butte is
visible from Rim Road.
The homesteaders would also go
to Sheep Mountain to hay if the
need arisen.
Cedar posts and firewood were
gathered at the slopes of the bad-
lands butte's. The men would set
a post at the top of the butte and
also at the bottom. A wire was then
stretched from the top to the bot-
tom. The posts would be stappled
to the wire and sent speeding
down. When the posts would hit
the end they would pop off the sta-
ple and were ready to be loaded
into wagons.
When times got real tough the
homesteaders would pick up the
bones of dead buffalo. They were
paid $3.00 a ton. The bones were
used to make fertilizer.
Walter Lee and Rosa Justine
Tyree came to the Badlands from
West Virginia around 1909. Their
oldest son Virgil was 11 years old.
Twins Howard and Eugene were
born seven years later on June 3,
1916. Eugene died at birth and
was laid to rest in the basin. His
tiny grave was covered with a
mound of stones.
The family lived there for 12
years and then moved to Interior.
Charles and Alice Wyant lived
above the Badlands. Their son
Clive homesteaded not far from
the Tyrees. He ran cattle along
with Louie Bloomer. LeRoy Wyant
was born in the homestead shack
in the middle of the Tyree Basin in
1934. His grandmother Alice deliv-
ered him. LeRoy and his family
moved away a year or two later.
When LeRoy was around five or
six he went with his dad, brother
and Jim Allburn and tore down an
old building that was on their Bad-
lands homestead.
On September 29, 1968 a differ-
ent expedition went into the Tyree
Basis. Instead of horses and wag-
ons, vehicles made the trek. Over
1,553 people made their way into
the basin to revisit the area.
Virgil and Howard Tyree were
among the many visitors on that
day. Ten years earlier Howard
found his twins grave and marked
it with a note stuck inside a bottle.
The bottle was discovered in
1960. In 1961, Scout Master
George Gunn, 13 Wasta Boy
Daugaard to call
special session
legislators. “I do not believe we can
afford to wait until January to
take action, because we would lose
this construction season.”
A special legislative session is
necessary to prevent the state
from losing a $23 million federal
grant already designated to the
Veterans Home.
Gov. Daugaard is hopeful the
setback will not delay progress on
building the new home. As the
state approaches the end of the fis-
cal year, current estimates indi-
cate tax revenues will be $7-10
million higher and expenses $7-10
million lower than expected, leav-
ing $14-20 million.

Using tick repellent and regu-
larly checking for ticks are the
keys to preventing tularemia,
Lyme disease and other tick-borne
illnesses, says a South Dakota
health official.
“Spring means more time out-
doors and more risk for tick-borne
diseases,” said Dr. Lon
Kightlinger, state epidemiologist
for the Department of Health.
“Every year in South Dakota we
see cases of Rocky Mountain spot-
ted fever, tularemia, ehrlichiosis
and Lyme disease – all tick-borne
illnesses.”
In 2012 the department investi-
gated four cases of Lyme disease,
five of tularemia and one ehrlichio-
sis. All four cases of Lyme disease
had out-of state tick exposure.
The Ioxdes deer tick that carries
Lyme disease prefers heavily
forested areas in Wisconsin and
Minnesota, so most areas of South
Dakota are not suitable habitat for
the species.
A 2011 tick survey conducted by
Dr. Michael Hildreth, a professor
in the departments of Biology and
Microbiology and Veterinary and
Biomedical Science at SDSU did
not find deer ticks in the locations
tested.
However, a deer tick was sent to
Dr. Buyung Hadi, SDSU Exten-
sion Urban Entomologist last fall
from Roberts County in northeast-
ern South Dakota.
To determine whether deer ticks
are becoming established in the
state, individuals finding ticks are
encouraged to send specimens for
identification to Dr. Hadi at:

made it their mission to mark the
grave and care for it. The group
went in on horseback and spent
four days in the badlands. A head-
stone was placed at the grave and
a fence was constructed to keep
the Buffalo away.
When Howard Tyree passed
Homesteaders of the Tyree Basin
away at the age of 88 in 2005, he
was cremated and his ashes were
given to his family. His obituary
states, he was interned in the
Tyree Basin, Badlands National
Park.
No matter the distance or time,
family will always find their way
home.
The prairie dog town that LeRoy
Wyant remembered has been
wiped out by the plague. The only
evidence of anyone who settled
there is a tiny grave surrounded by
Badlands.

Huether for allowing me to park
on their land to hike into the Tyree
Basin.

Tick samples should be sent
within a small bottle sealed with
tape. DO NOT crush the sample
or put the tick on tape.
Make sure that your name,
phone number and date of submis-
sion are attached to the bottle.
If sending the sample via post,
pack the vial in a padded envelope
or cardboard containers.
Ticks will be identified but not
tested for Lyme disease.
The 2011 tick survey did find
plentiful numbers of Dermacentor
dog ticks. While the dog tick
doesn’t carry Lyme disease, it does
transmit Rocky Mountain Spotted
Fever, tularemia and ehrlichiosis,
so people should protect them-
selves from this tick species
Tick bites are usually painless
and appear as a small red bump
with a bright red halo.
To remove an attached tick, use
tweezers or a tissue and pull
slowly and steadily, being careful
not to crush it. Then apply antisep-
tic to the site to prevent infection.
If you use bare hands to remove
a tick, wash your hands thor-
oughly with warm water and soap.
Avoid touching your eyes before
washing.
Tick-borne illness symptoms in-
clude sudden onset of a moderate-
to-high fever, stiff neck, deep mus-
cle pain, arthritis, fatigue, severe
headache, chills, a rash on the
arms and legs or around the site of
the bite, and swollen lymph nodes,
particularly in the neck. If you de-
velop any of these symptoms after
a tick bite, see your doctor. With
Rocky Mountain spotted fever the
illness does not start immediately
after the tick bite, but typically
five to 10 days after the tick at-
tachment.
When outdoors, repel ticks by
tucking your pants into your socks
and spraying clothes and any ex-
posed skin with a tick repellent.
Other precautions include:
•Check frequently for ticks
when outside, especially the scalp
and folds of skin. Ticks need to be
attached for several hours to
spread infection so you can signif-
icantly cut your risk by checking
for and removing ticks right away.
•Check small children thor-
oughly and often for ticks when
they've been outside or have had
contact with pets or livestock that
may have ticks.
•Ask your veterinarian about
appropriate insecticides and col-
lars to protect pets from ticks and
limit the number they carry into
the home. For added protection,
apply insecticides and tick repel-
lents to your pet's bedding.
•Check your animals frequently
for ticks. To remove ticks from an-
imals, apply constant traction with
forceps or tweezers. If you must
use your fingers, wear disposable
gloves then wash hands thor-
oughly with soap and water.

borne diseases can be found on the

Gen. William S. Harney and his
men swept through the heart of
Lakota country in the fall of 1855.
Harney was one of the best-
known military figures in the
United States between the War of
1812 and the War Between the
States.
He chased the last remaining pi-
rates of Jean Lafitte in Louisiana,
fought in the Black Hawk War, led
the cavalry in the Mexican War, al-
most caused a war with Great
Britain in the Pacific Northwest
and was both a fighter and peace-
maker with American Indians.
He was at Fort Laramie in
southeast Wyoming when he was
called upon to assert the might of
the United States government
against American Indians.
In 1854, a group of Mormons
that was headed west left a lame
cow untethered at Fort Laramie.
American Indians killed the cow
for food. Lt. J.L. Grattan led 29
men from Fort Laramie to the In-
dian camp to find the guilty party.
Negotiations grew heated, and a
shot was fired. The result was the
death of all the soldiers and the be-
ginning of some 30 years of inter-
mittent warfare on the northern
plains.
Harney was sent to avenge the
killing of the soldiers. He and his
General William S. Harney
men arrived at Ash Hollow along
the North Platte River in present-
day Garden County, Neb., on Sept.
2, 1855, where Little Thunder’s
Brulé band was camped. Although
Little Thunder and other Ameri-
can Indian leaders came forward
with a white flag, Harney refused
to talk peace with them, nor did he
shake Little Thunder’s out-
stretched hand.
As the American Indian leaders
disappeared from sight, Harney
ordered the infantry to charge. In
the end, four soldiers and 86 Amer-
ican Indians, including women and
children, were killed. Seventy
more American Indians, mostly
women and children, were taken
prisoner.
Harney returned to Fort
Laramie, but realized he had in-
timidated only a portion of the
Lakota with this show of force. He
and about 425 troops left on Sept.
29, 1855, for Fort Pierre.
The federal government had re-
cently purchased the former fur
trading post north of the present-
day town of Fort Pierre.
Harney and his men arrived at
Fort Pierre in a sleet and snow-
storm on Oct. 20, only to find di-
lapidated buildings and no nearby
hay and wood .
Harney abandoned Fort Pierre
in 1857. Before doing so, he had
called a peace council that in-
cluded all the western bands of
Lakota.
A treaty was negotiated which
for the first time provided an In-
dian police force to preserve the
peace. The treaty was rejected by
the U.S. Senate.
While still at Fort Pierre, Har-
ney also found a suitable site for a
fort along the Missouri River. He
established Fort Randall about 110
miles by river above Yankton. Fort
Randall was a strategic site in
western frontier defense.
In order to end fighting through-
out the Great Plains, Congress es-
tablished the Indian Peace Com-
mission of 1867. Harney served on
this commission. American Indi-
ans he had fought now saw him
come to make peace.
During the councils, Harney be-
came the defender of American In-
dians. He stressed their need for
food and clothing.
He was later placed in charge of
the administrative district known
as the Great Sioux Reservation.
This included all the land west of
the Missouri River in present-day
South Dakota.
Overseeing the Great Sioux
Governor Dennis Daugaard an-
nounced he will appoint Vern Lar-
son of Vivian as Commissioner of
School and Public Lands.
“Vern Larson is well-known to
South Dakotans, and the voters
have placed their confidence in
him again and again,” said Gover-
nor Daugaard. “As State Auditor
and State Treasurer, Vern was a
prudent steward of state assets,
and I know he will bring that same
sound management to the Office of
School and Public Lands.”
Last month, Commissioner Jar-
Governor Daugaard to appoint
Vern Larson as Commissioner
of School and Public Lands
rod Johnson resigned from office,
effective August 15.
The Governor’s appointment of
Larson will be effective at the
same time. Larson will serve out
the remainder of the term, which
ends in January 2015, but he will
not be a candidate for the office in
2014.
“I’m honored and humbled to ac-
cept this appointment,” said Lar-
son. “I look forward to serving our
state in this office.”
Larson is a native of Vivian. He
was elected State Auditor in 1978
and re-elected five times, serving
from 1979-2003.
In 2002, he was elected State
Treasurer, serving two terms from
2003-2011.
The third season of free weekly
tours at the South Dakota Gover-
nor’s Mansion will begin next
month.
First Lady Linda Daugaard said
she and the Governor are happy to
again open the home on the shore
of Capitol Lake to the public.
“This home was built not only as
a place for governors and their
families to live, but also as a South
Dakota showcase for others to
enjoy,” Mrs. Daugaard said. “We
are pleased to welcome those who
wish to take the tour.”
Tickets for mansion tours must
be obtained in advance from the
Pierre Chamber of Commerce.
Beginning June 5, weekly public
Governor’s Mansion tours to resume
tours will be conducted each
Wednesday in June, July, and Au-
gust (with the exception of July 3;
no tour that week because of the
pending July 4 holiday).
The 30-minute tours, for groups
up to 30 people, will begin at 10
a.m. CDT, 11 a.m., 1 p.m., and 2
p.m., and will be conducted by vol-
unteers, including the First Lady.
Public tour tickets, at no charge,
must be obtained in advance and
will be available only from the
Pierre Chamber of Commerce.

tending a tour should call the

A Letter to America
America is headed straight to-
wards destruction. And this de-
struction will come as a judgment
from God. This judgment can only
be averted is we seek God and turn
ourselves and our country around.
Responsibility for the ungodli-
ness which now prevails in our
great country belongs to each one
of us. But why me, you are proba-
bly thinking, to yourself. Because
God says so! You see, God is going
to hold us responsible for every-
thing. For what we have done and
for what we have failed to do.
In the Word of God (the Holy
Bible) it says, “Let us hear the con-
clusion of the whole matter: Fear
God, and keep his commandments;
for this is the whole duty of man”
(Ecclesiastes 12:13).
We failed our duty in many dif-
ferent ways!
We stood by as our nation was
being corrupted and perverted,
and we let ungodliness seep into
every aspect of our lives. Every-
thing which God considers abomi-
nation is now accepted in America.
Some of our political leaders
now brazenly support things
which God Almighty called wicked
and abominable.
They are either not knowledge-
able in God’s word, or are defying
God.
The Holy Bible shows what hap-
pened to nations who dared to defy
God, or that got so morally de-
praved that God finally destroyed
them.
So we need to admit that Amer-
ica is morally and spiritually cor-
rupt, and that it is time to turn
back to God. As a start, turn the
TV off, and then close your eyes,
sit back, take a few deep breathes,
and relax for a few minutes with-
out thinking.
Then believe the Bible truth
that there is a living God, our Cre-
ator, who created everything that
was created and made, including
you, and that He loves you.
On a clear night, go outside
where it is dark and look at the
moon, stars, and the never-ending
universe. Everything you see be-
fore you, stands, on God’s Word.
God wants us to love him, obey
him, and serve him, in return for
the life he has given us. To get to
know God, read the Word of God,
the Holy Bible, from beginning to
end.

Reservation was Harney’s last gov-
ernment job. He died in Orlando,
Fla., on May 9, 1889.
His name lives on in South
Dakota. The peak he might have
observed in the distance as he and
his troops skirted the Black Hills
in 1855 was named Harney Peak
in his honor by Lt. G.K. Warren
while on a survey expedition in
1857.

The Natural Resources Conser-
vation Service’s Conservation
Stewardship Program (CSP) will
provide about $175 million in
funding for up to 12.6 million ad-
ditional acres enrollment this year.
Although applications are ac-
cepted all year, farmers, ranchers
and forestland owners interested
in CSP should submit applications
by June 14 to their local NRCS of-
fice to ensure they are considered
for this year’s funding. The dead-
line was extended from May 31.
“CSP is different than our other
financial assistance programs,”
said NRCS Acting Chief Jason
Weller. “It offers payments to pro-
ducers who maintain a high level
of conservation on their land and
agree to adopt higher levels of
stewardship. It’s about conserva-
tion activities on the entire opera-
tion, focusing on multiple resource
concerns.”
South Dakota CSP Coordinator,
Jessica Michalski, states “CSP has
been an extremely successful pro-
gram in South Dakota. Many SD
producers are interested in contin-
uing a tradition of improving our
states’ natural resources and in-
creasing productivity of their oper-
ations by enrolling in this volun-
tary program.”
Playing a significant part in con-
serving and improving our nation’s
Conservation Stewardship Program
applications due by June 14
resources, producers enrolled an
additional 12.1 million acres in
CSP last year, bringing the total
number of acres to more than 50
million. South Dakota currently
has over 1100 contracts totaling
more than 2.9 million acres.
Many of the CSP enhancements
improve soil quality, which helps
land become more resilient to ex-
treme weather. Several other im-
provements are available for pro-
ducers, including intensive rota-
tional grazing, intercropping and
wildlife friendly fencing.
Because of the extreme weather
in 2012, more interest and partici-
pation in the cover crop enhance-
ments is expected this year, ac-
cording to NRCS experts.
A CSP self-screening checklist is
available to help producers deter-
mine if the program is suitable for
their operation. The checklist
highlights basic information about
CSP eligibility requirements, stew-
ardship threshold requirements
and payment types.
For the checklist and additional
information, visit the CSP website
(http://www.nrcs.usda.gov/wps/por
tal/nrcs/main/national/programs/fi
nancial/csp/), visit your local
USDA NRCS office, or contact

Here’s a recap on what occurred
throughout the Rapid City commu-
nity Wednesday, May 29
evening/night:
•Flash flooding around 7:30
p.m. throughout the Arrowhead
Drainage Basin (along Sheridan
Lake Rd.) – streets and driveways
were impassible for a short period
of time
•Pennington County Sheriff
Deputies, Rapid City Police Offi-
cers, Rapid City Firefighters, and
Emergency Management patrolled
known trouble spots and moni-
tored the local drainages
•The Rapid City / Pennington
County Emergency Operations
Center was activated to support
agency responses
•Runoff from the Jackson Boule-
vard Drainage Basin followed an
atypical path into the Midwestern
subdivision (Judy Ave. area) re-
sulting in broken basement win-
dows and basement flooding in a
few homes. The Rapid City Fire
Department and Red Cross ad-
dressed the immediate issues
•Around 8:30 p.m. water was up
three feet against Meadowbrook
School at Argyle Street
•When the flows at Founders
Park reach approx. 800 cubic feet
per second, the Water Rescue
Team assembles a squad and be-
gins a roving patrol around known
trouble spots
•Many groups of spectators
standing along the edge of the
water in the dark were encouraged
to keep away from the creek
•Rapid Creek crested in Rapid
City around 9 p.m. with a flow of
1,180 cubic feet per second and a
depth of about 7.5 feet (earlier in
the day the creek was steady at 25
Rapid City area flooding event
cubic feet per second and 3.5 feet
deep)
•Some of the heaviest rainfall
occurred in drainage basins that
feed into Rapid Creek after it
passes under E. St. Pat. and before
it gets to South Valley Drive – the
flows at South Valley Drive were
significant and several homes in
the Melody Acres subdivision
(Melody Lane area) were evacu-
ated by the Rapid Valley Fire De-
partment and the Water Rescue
Team. The Red Cross was receiv-
ing and processing displaced resi-
dents at the Family Thrift Center
on E. St. Pat.
•Rapid Creek crested at South
Valley Drive around 11 p.m. at
over 15.5 feet deep.
•By 12:30 a.m. the next morning
the Water Rescue Team was re-
leased from the South Valley area
as the water was subsiding
•Around 12:45 a.m., the Rapid
Valley Fire Department notified
residents in the Green Valley
Drive area that the high water was
moving through their area, no
evacuations were made
Communication and coordina-
tion were superb during this event.
While there was some property
damage, there were no injuries.
This event highlights how rap-
idly conditions in our local
drainages can become menacing,
however it also highlights the phe-
nomenal interagency working re-
l at i onshi ps, c ommuni c at i on
processes, specialized training,
and proper equipment that can be
brought to bear during emergency
situations in our community.

By Coach Patterson
The State B track meet was held
May 24th and 25th at Howard
Wood in Sioux Falls.
The track squad of Taran Eisen-
braun, Tyler Trask, Nathan Pat-
terson, Laketon McLaughlin, Tyler
Peterson, Austin Huether, Sadie
O'Rourke, Tayah Huether, Monica
Bielmaier, Anika Eisenbraun, Au-
tumn Schulz and Maddi Bauer
competed well.
Friday was a cool, cloudy day
along with a 45 minute lightning
delay.
A. Eisenbraun, Bielmaier, T.
Huether, and O'Rourke ran the
400M Relay with a time of 58.60
for 15th.
Then O'Rourke ran the 100
Meter Dash in a 13.22 for 12th,
the 200 Meter Dash in a 27.65 for
10th, and the 400 Meter Run in
1:02.23 for ninth.
T. Huether ran the open 800 in
2:28.10 for ninth.
Schulz threw the discus 87' 7"
for 16th and on Saturday, the shot
put 34' 4" for 16th place.
Bauer had a no height in the
pole vault.
The boys on Friday had Trask
and Patterson running the 100
Meter Dash. Trask ran an 11.70 for
16th and Patterson 11.74 for 17th.
Peterson placed ninth in the
long jump with a leap of 19' 2.25"
and McLaughlin threw the discus
115' 11" for 16th.
The 800 Relay consisting of T.
Eisenbraun, Peterson, Patterson,
and Trask ran a 1:38.52 for 13th.
Saturday was a cool day, but
with sunshine.
A. Huether ran the 1600 for
17th in a 5:02.13.
Then Peterson leaped 41' 3.5" to
place second in the triple jump.
The 2013 track season
has come to a close
McLaughlin heaved the shot put
46'.00" for fifth place.
Coach's Comments: The ath-
letes performed well with good
times against tough competition.
O’Rourke just missed out in the
400 for medaling. Her time was
1:02.23 and eighth was 1:02.20. It
came down to the lean.
T. Huether was close as well
with eighth place at 2:27.98 and
her time of 2:28.10.
The relay teams gave it their all
with good hand offs and running
hard. Trask and Patterson ran
hard, as well as A. Huether in
their open events.
Bauer attempted the opening
height in pole vault coming so
close clearing it. It was not meant
to be that day.
T. Eisenbraun, Bielmaier and A.
Eisenbraun ran their legs of the
relays well at the meet.
T. Eisenbraun is an excellent
starter and will do well in college
track.
Schulz threw both days to end
her career as a dual sport qualifier
in track and golf during her high
school years.
McLaughlin and Peterson made
it on the medal stand in their
events. It is quite a deal to have
two athletes medal at the state
meet.
The top 16 plus athletes from
across the state are there and com-
petition is tough.
Congratulations to all the Wall
athletes. You made us proud.

Elm Springs News
Submitted by Shirrise Linn
The Elm Springs area has wel-
comed 4.39“ of rain for the month
of May. Things are beautiful,
green, lush, and wonderful. The
brandings and trailing to sum-
mer pasture are running a little
behind schedule, but there hasn’t
been a lot of complaining. Thank
Heaven for the rain!!!
The news is short this week as
everyone is busy finishing the
cattle work so spring planting
can resume and hay season can
begin.
Freddie Ferguson reports he’s
done not much more than play in
the creek fixing flooded out fence
- no complaints though.
Charlotte and Katie Wilsey
visited John and Jean Linn’s,
Sunday.
Kassandra Linn enjoyed movie
night at Pat and RoseMary
Trask’s, Monday night. Laken
got to spend the day Tuesday on
the creek with Tomilyn Trask.
Roger Shull was an overnight
guest at the Morris Linn’s,
Thursday night. Shirrise and
Laken attended a surprise
luncheon for Cathie Printz of
New Underwood, in Rapid City,
Saturday. They were accompa-
nied by Tiff Knuppe.
Tom and Shelia Trask arrived
home, Friday evening, after a
successful bear hunting trip to
Northern Saskatchewan. Leav-
ing after rain and getting more
while they were gone made the
trip even more successful and en-
joyable!
Ross Wilburn from Rapid City,
visited Wes and Gladys on Sun-
day. The Wilburn’s went to Faith,
Monday, for Memorial Day.
Tom and Kelly Wilsey from
Tea, visited Jim and Caroline
Wednesday through Friday.
Wasta Wanderings

Lloyd & Margee Willey
Colorado was beautiful and the
Willey family gathering was great
fun. It is traditionally held at a lit-
tle red, one room school house built
in 1897. It is a simple affair, pot
luck style with everyone bringing
their own chairs. The countryside
was so green and lush. The west-
ern slope has had good moisture
throughout winter and spring. As
we have not been since 2009, we
had some catching up to do. From
new babies to college graduates,
the scene changes yearly. They are
a fine group of cousins and we all
helped Violet Willey Goodsell
Mooney celebrate her 90th birth-
day. She keeps up with garden,
kids, grandkids and great-grand-
kids and works two hours every
morning five days a week just so
she doesn’t get lazy!
I want to be just like Violet when
I grow up!
News around Wasta? Louis Ran-
cour has graduated from kinder-
garten, Thursday, the 23rd. He
said he was definitely looking for-
ward to first grade, and expects
yearly graduations.
On Wednesday, the 22nd, a
meeting was held at the Wasta
Post Office for the decision regard-
ing service there. The consensus of
those returning the questionnaire
sent out by U.S.P.S. was a majority
in favor of shortened hours, which
will be 7:30-11:30 a.m., Monday
through Friday and hours on Sat-
urday the same as the present Sat-
urday hours.
Tuesday some familiar faces
were spotted strolling up “B”
street. Natalee and Kylee Smid
with Aunt Lisa Smid were return-
ing from the post office with two
huge and protective doggies kept
under control by Natalee. Actually,
the dogs are cute and friendly chi-
huahuas. Natalee was quick to
share that she passed first grade
and will be a second grader, that
school was fun and she was return-
ing with Aunt Lisa to Phoenix for
six weeks! Baby sister Kylee isn’t
going as she is too little! They will
get to see a lot of people and have
fun at Sea World and the San
Diego Zoo. Natalee is always fun to
visit with.
Grandparents, Kyle and Doreen
and Uncle Dayton Skillingstad
have been enjoying a family vaca-
tion at Desert Ridge Resort close to
Scottsdale, Ariz.
Doreen and Kyle have added a
mud room entry to their house and
some sidewalks. Doreen said she
wouldn’t have believed how excited
she could get about sidewalks and
cement!
Dayton’s baseball schedule is
still unknown but the team has
begun playing.
Moni Grenstiner will have sur-
gery on her knee Friday, the 7th,
so she may be laid up for a short
time, but knowing Moni she will
find a way to get around.
Grenstiner girls are taking a
hunter safety course in Sturgis
with Uncle Ty Grenstiner driving
them to and from. They will learn
gun safety called the Ten Com-
mandments of Safety. This class is
mandatory for any hunters want-
ing to be licensed who are under
age 18. We know these girls are
sportsman and enjoy hunting with
their dad and mom so congratula-
tions to the Grenstiners for seeing
this important step is taken.
Checking in with RoseMary
Trask we are told that Celine is
still recovering so very well from
her serious accident last Decem-
ber. RoseMary said Celine can ride
an adult size three wheeler trike,
and can do several turns around
an area about a block square. “It
definitely helps to be able to go
outside and do something” says
RoseMary of this determined
daughter. Celine was also able to
do all of her school work at home
and knows now she passed into
11th grade!
You have our admiration, Ce-
line, and would love it if you would
ride that trike in Wasta’s July 4th
parade. Your courage and determi-
nation is amazing!
The Wall school had its elemen-
tary school awards Thursday, the
23rd of May and some Wasta kids
to be mentioned are:
Samantha Rancour - Perfect at-
tendance for the second year in a
row. Dad, Tom Rancour, hinted
that she didn’t let tummy ache or
a little nose sniffle keep her home.
This girl wanted perfect atten-
dance!
Other awards and participation
recognition went to:
Ash Grenstiner - Principal’s
Honor Roll, President’s Gold
Honor Roll;
Brody Carter - Honor Roll
Kole Gallino - Honor Roll and
award for band participation.
John Deering - Honor Roll and
award for band participation
Sheridan Deering - award for
“Recorder Karate” participation
Congratulations to all of you
wonderful Wasta kids. We know
that these awards mean commit-
ment and hours spent when per-
haps something else might be
more fun. Good job and thank you
all for just being really good kids.
Ash and Madi are finishing their
week at the Wall Methodist
Church as helpers for the younger
kids at Vacation Bible School.
Thank you, Ash, for helping with
some of the information about
school awards, also.
Out of news, out of paper, Lloyd

Seemed like last week went by
quickly. must have been because of
two Sundays (Memorial Day
seemed like a Sunday, too.) wasn’t
the rain wonderful?! We needed it
and it didn’t come with a lot of
wind, soaked into the thirsty
ground.
A lot of obituaries have been
listed in the paper again. They in-
cluded Phyllis Kochersberger (59)
died May 25; Rosie Lejaune (94)
died may 23; Laura Morgan (102)
died May 28. We offer our condo-
lences to all of their families and
friends.
Theme Meal was held on Friday
at Prairie Village with 32 attend-
ing, a few more than last month.
Heard the menu was different and
very tasty.
Election Day in Wall is June 4th
but the only thing to vote on is for
a councilman for Ward I. So if you
are not a resident of that ward,
you have no vote.
Last week, Stan and Alice Met-
tler, along with brother Dick and
Carol Mettler, traveled to
Dubuque, Iowa, to witness the in-
stallation of their nephew Bishop
Michael Owen Jackels as the 10th
Arch Bishop of Dubuque. The im-
pressive ceremony was held before
an audience of 1200 (invited only)
guests. The Arch Bishop was em-
ployed as a chore boy at Wall Drug
when he was a 16 year old, about
1970.
Jim and Leila Joyce of Custer
came to Wall on Friday and took
Frances Poste along with them to
Philip to attend the funeral of Jim
Dean. Jim was a cousin of Leila. It
is always nice to visit family you
haven’t seen in awhile; just sad
that a funeral is the time they get
together. Plan a family reunion.
Bruce Swan’s mother, Lois of
Newell, is in Wall visiting Bruce
and Kathy for a few days. They
were in Custer on Saturday to take
in the “Grand Magic Show” at
Bedrock City, Flintstone Village.
Laura is a part of the show as she
was last year, too. Sounds like fun!
Rob Smart of Alaska, was in
Wall on Sunday attending church.
He is staying in Rapid City with
Orlin and Lourine Winkowitsch to
help care for Orlin. Earlier Orlin
had spent some time in the hospi-
tal with pneumonia and had the
misfortune to fall while there, in-
juring his back. He has been home
for awhile. We send our “get well”
messages out to him.
The Regional High School Rodeo
took place this past weekend in
Wall. Looked to be quite a muddy
mess in the beginning. But one
thing — each contestant had the
same disadvantage.
According to Deb Bryan, plans
are underway for the Badlands
Alumni reunion in Wall on July
12th. We’ll keep you posted.
Vacation Bible School was a
huge success at the Methodist
Church last week — Tuesday
through Friday. There were ap-
proximately 23 registered. Gwen
McConnell and Moni Grenstiner
were co-chairmen. The theme was
centered around learning about
other countries. The church was
decorated in circus colors. All was
appreciated for everyone who
worked to make this possible.
Carl and Jan Hill and grandson
Malachi were down from Rapid
City on Sunday, playing tourists.
They visited with Gerald and Es-
ther Wolford also.
Sixty years ago, on June 2, 1953,
Queen Elizabeth II of Britain was
crowned in Westminster Abbey.
The really happy person is the
one who can enjoy the scenery when
he has to take a detour.
Have a good week!

Years ago I had a boss who nearly
every day would say to me, "Results!
Just get me the results!" He did not
want to hear about all the stuff and
fluff of my daily activities; he just
wanted the results from my activi-
ties. He was a pretty tough boss, but
he did teach me of the importance of
getting results.
According to Wikipedia, "result" is
defined as the final consequence of
a sequence of actions or events
(broadly incidents and accidents) ex-
pressed qualitatively or quantita-
tively, being a loss, injury, disadvan-
tage, advantage, gain, victory or
simply a value. There may be a
range of possible outcomes associ-
ated with an event possibly depend-
ing on the point of view, historical
distance or relevance. Put simply, a
result is simply the outcome or con-
sequences of something.
As we all come to find out sooner
or later, there are always results,
but the results we get are not al-
ways what we had hoped for. I have
found that when people don't get the
results they wanted there is usually
something that has gotten in their
way, such as:
•Laziness
•Lack of focus
•Fear
•Stress and anxiety
•Priorities being out of whack
•Timing isn't right
This list, of course, is far from
complete. You may have to do a little
soul-searching to find out what ex-
actly is keeping you from getting the
results you desire from all your ac-
tivity.
"Getting the job done is job one"
may be your motto, but it is vital
that you define the results you are
after, in the initial stages of the ac-
tion process. It is always a good idea
to take the necessary time to clarify
your goals and objectives. Remind
yourself that results do not just hap-
pen by osmosis, and that there is no
magic or easy way to get things
done. If you want results, you are
going to have to work for it! Some-
times results require that you work
very hard until the job is done! An-
other thing-be sure that the things
you are doing are actually moving
you closer to achieving your desired
results. After all, if what you are
doing is taking you in the wrong di-
rection, you will probably not reach
your destination.
Results come from action-consis-
tent daily actions. Awesome results
are the by-product of planning,
tenacity, enthusiasm, commitment,
and ultimately taking action. I know
you've heard me say it before, and I
will continue to say it: Take Action
and you become!
From personal experience, I can
say that once the intended results
are achieved, standing back and re-
viewing the results of your activity
is a very pleasurable experience.
Even the mistakes you corrected
and the challenges you have tena-
ciously overcome along the way add
to your ultimate satisfaction.
In conclusion, bringing everything
to a productive closure is exactly
what I am doing right now with you.
Now that you have received your
"motivation" your time, energy, and
money now needs to be invested in
some productive and profitable ac-
tivities that do not include reading
any more of this article. “Smile!”

Posted By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
To Paul was committed the greatest revelation of all time. He was divinely commis-
sioned to proclaim the glorious all-sufficiency of Christ’s redemptive work, God’s offer
of salvation by free grace to all who trust in Christ and their heavenly position, blessings
and prospect.
Lest he should become puffed up by the glory of these great truths, God gave him
what he calls “a thorn in the flesh”, an aggravating physical infirmity of some sort. “For
this thing,” he says, “I besought the Lord thrice [three times], that it might depart from
me” (IICor.12:8). But the Lord knew better than Paul what was best for him:
“And He said unto me, My grace is sufficient for thee; for My strength is made
perfect in weakness” (Ver.9).
How right God was! Every Christian knows that with brimming health and “good for-
tune” comes the tendency to forget our need of Him, while infirmity causes us to lean
harder and to pray more and this is where our spiritual power lies. Every believer should
acknowledge this and say with Paul:
“Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities, that the power of
Christ may rest upon me. Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities…for when I
am weak, then am I strong” (IICor.12:9,10).
Infirmities of the flesh are common even to God’s choicest saints. What satisfaction
there is, then, in just believing God’s Word: “My grace is sufficient for thee, for My
strength is made perfect in weakness”.

May Mednansky, age 91 of
White River, S.D., died Thursday,
May 30, 2013, at the Maryhouse in
Pierre.
Juanita “May” Shouldis Med-
nansky was born to Charles and
Mary A. (Atkins) Shouldis, Decem-
ber 12, 1921, in Mellette County.
May married Clarence Mednan-
sky in Valentine, Neb., September
16, 1940. Three children were born
to this union: Audrey (Ed) Bur-
nette, Pierre, Rodney (Oleta) Med-
nansky and Janice Ellis, White
River. From there the family grew
to include grandchildren, Angela
(David) Aud, Great Mills, Md., Guy
(Michele) Burnette, California,
Md., Sonya (Josh) Feaster, Tucson,
Ariz., Justin (Dena) Mednansky,
Richard Mednansky and Duane
Mednansky, White River, Chad
(Margarita) Ellis, Mexico, and Tri-
cia Shedeed, Otter Tail, Minn.;
great-grandchildren, Joey, Brandy,
Bailey, Sage, Taylor, Sharissa, Ash-
ton, Logan, Justin, Kade, Alexan-
dra, Michelle, Nathan, Lauren,
Kaise, Adam, Matthew, James and
Alana; and proud to have Nova
Maylynn as her great-great-grand-
daughter.
May barely answered to being
called Juanita but loved being
called Mom, Grandma, Grandma
Great, Aunt or Auntie May. May
sometimes spelled with an “e”,
sometimes with a “y”, just to keep
us on our toes. When asked about
doing something here lately, her
come back would be, “Well, I’m
ONLY 91!” She loved her family
and friends, going to the grandkids’
programs, concerts and games. She
loved seeing the sun and moon rise
and set, working with the livestock,
admiring the birds and flowers and
all that nature provided.
May was a sweet, hardworking,
quiet country girl. She worked side
by side with Clarence on the farm/
ranch as well as maintaining the
house and preparing the greatest
meals. The farm was a vacation
spot to many nieces and nephews
growing up and later to her grand-
children. Moving from “home” to
town was a big adjustment for both
May and Clarence.
After moving to town, she en-
joyed bird watching and neighbor
watching! She knew what every
bird was and what every neighbor
was doing. She was looking for-
ward to sitting on her new deck
this summer and had plans for
flowers she would be able to enjoy
as she soaked up the sunshine.
May loved playing canasta,
solitare, embroidering and crochet-
ing. May embroidered towels that
are raffled off at the Mednansky
family reunion and has them ready
for this year!
May was an active and proud
member of the Cottownwood
Ladies Aide and so enjoyed her
monthly outing. She often took a
quarter rather than a dime for
lunch – the big spender she was!
May came home full of news and
reported on what lunch consisted of
and, of course, wasn't really hungry
for supper that night.
May fought a courageous battle
but was overcome by kidney and
congestive heart failure. She was
one tough, brave woman to the end!
May was preceded in death by
her husband, Clarence, her parents
and her brothers and sisters, as
well as many special Shouldis and
Mednansky in-laws.
Services were held Tuesday,
June 4, at the White River Commu-
nity Events Center with Pastor
Craig Marshall officiating.
Music was provided by Linda
Blom with special music by great-
grandson, Sage Mednansky.
Guest book attendants were
Barb “Susie” Ketel and Michelle
Whitted. Ushers were Charles
“Pete” Shouldis and Bill Sinclair.
Pallbearers were Justin, Richard
and Duane Mednansky, Bruce
Boyd, Kevin Kusick and Dale
“Bobby” Wooden Knife. Honorary
pallbearers were the Cottonwood
Ladies Aide members and all of
May’s family and friends.
Interment was in the White
River Cemetery.
A memorial has been estab-
lished.
Arrangements were with the
Rush Funeral Home of Philip.
Her online guestbook is avail-
able at www.rushfuneralhome.com
May Mednansky________________________________
Carol Ruth Borelson, age 78, of
Kadoka, S.D., formerly of Rapid
City, died Sunday, June 2, 2013, at
the Kadoka Nursing Home.
Carol Ruth Borelson was born
October 13, 1934 at New Under-
wood, the third daughter of Tobias
“Toby” and Christine (Matthews)
Borelson. The family resided in
New Underwood for a while. After
the accidental death of Carol’s old-
est sister, Lorraine, the family
moved to their Rapid City area
ranch.
Carol grew up on the family
ranch and after her parents death,
she continued to reside on the
ranch with her sister and care
giver, Dorothy Borelson. On Sep-
tember 23, 2009 Carol moved into
the Kadoka Nursing Home, be-
cause of the failing health of her
sister, Dorothy. Carol continued to
reside at the nursing home until
her death.
Carol was baptized into the
Catholic faith.
Grateful for having shared her
life are her guardian, Robert “Bob”
Heidgerken and his wife, Peggy, of
Rapid City; a special friend, Paula
Vogelgesang of Wanblee; and the
residents of the Kadoka Nursing
Home.
Carol was preceded in death by
her parents and two sisters, Lor-
raine and Dorothy Borelson.
Visitation will be held one hour
preceding the services.
Mass of Christian burial will be
celebrated at 10:00 a.m. Thursday,
June 6, at the Kadoka Nursing
Home with Father Bryan Sorensen
as celebrant.
Music will be provided by Mari-
lyn Millage, pianist, and Susan
Davidson, vocalist. Pallbearers are
Michael, Jay and Paula Vogelge-
sang, and Robert, Aaron and Ben
Heidgerken. Honorary pallbearers
are the residents and staff of the
Kadoka Nursing Home.
Graveside services will be held
2:00 p.m. Thursday, June 6, at the
Black Hills National Cemetery
near Sturgis wth Father Bill Zan-
dri officiating.
A memorial has been estab-
lished.
Arrangements are with the
Rush Funeral Chapel of Kadoka.
Her online guestbook is avail-
able at www.rushfuneralhome.com
Carol Ruth Borelson______________________________
Linda Kramer, age 67, of Philip,
S.D., died April 6, 2013, at St.
Joseph Hospital in Tucson, Ariz.
Linda Lee Long was born Sep-
tember 25, 1945, to Orville (Tim)
and Mathilda (Tillie) Long. She
was raised on the family farm near
Philip. She was baptized and con-
firmed at Philip's Our Redeemer
Lutheran Church. As a young girl,
she looked forward to finishing her
daily chores so she could spend
time with her sister, Sally, swim in
the stock dams, fish, and visit her
many cousins. After graduating
from Philip High School, she at-
tended the American Business Col-
lege in Rapid City and earned a de-
gree in business administration.
She married John (Jack) Still in
1967, who passed away in a plane
crash in 1968.
In June 1970, she married
Danny Kramer in Davenport, Iowa.
During their careers, they had the
opportunity to reside in a number
of states, including Illinois, Iowa,
Michigan, Washington and Califor-
nia. During her career, Linda
achieved significant success in both
the banking and mortgage indus-
tries. Following retirement, Linda
and Danny moved from Moorpark,
Calif., to Burlington, Iowa. In 2007,
they purchased a motor home so
they could spend more time visit-
ing family and friends around the
country. In June 2012, they sold
their home in Burlington to follow
their dream of becoming full-time
RV'ers. In her retirement, Linda
enjoyed reading, golfing, genealogy,
water aerobics and coin collecting
but most of all, she relished spend-
ing time with her five grandchil-
dren and, as she put it, "making
memories."
Grateful for having shared
Linda's life include her husband,
Danny Kramer, of Philip; her son,
John (Tonya) Kramer of Philip; her
son, Jason (Penelope) Kramer of
Corona, Calif.; five grandchildren,
Coy, Corbin and Colden (Philip);
Kaylee and Zachery (Corona); sis-
ter, Sally (Arthur) Campbell of Port
Washington, Wis.; and a host of
other relatives and friends.
She was preceded in death by
her parents; a brother, Arnold; and
her first husband.
According to her wishes, her
body was cremated.
Memorial services will be held at
2:00 p.m. on Friday, June 14, at the
First Lutheran Church in Philip,
with Pastor Frezil Westerlund offi-
ciating.
In lieu of flowers, memorials
may be directed to the American
Lung Association.
Arrangements are with the
Rush Funeral Home of Philip.

Change in agricultural classification
for taxation purposes
A vote by the Pennington County
Board of Commissioners on May
21, 2013 changed the minimum
acreage criteria for an agricultural
classification for property tax pur-
poses in Pennington County, SD.
South Dakota codified law 10-6-
31.3 lists 3 criteria required for an
agricultural property tax classifica-
tion. This law allows the county
commission to set the minimum
acreage required between 20 acres
and 160 acres. The previous mini-
mum acreage in Pennington
County was 40 acres. This change
will possibly affect the 2014 prop-
erty tax classification for properties
currently classified as agricultural
for property tax purposes. This is
not a zoning classification and only
affects property assessment and
taxes.
SDCL 10-6-31.3 requires any 2 of
the 3 criteria be met for an agricul-
tural classification. This change in
the minimum acreage will require
that agricultural classed properties
below 160 acres meet the principal
use and income criterion. Those re-
quirements are, in summary, that
the principal use of the property be
agricultural production for in-
tended profit and that one third of
the owner’s total family gross in-
come be derived from agricultural
production.
The office of the Pennington
County Director of Equalization
will notify, in writing, all property
owners who might be affected by
this change in classification. This
notice will be mailed in the fall of
2013 and will request information
relating to qualification for the
agricultural classification. Prop-
erty owners should expect to pro-
vide information identifying total
owned acres, percentage of gross
income derived from agricultural
production, and principal use of the
property. This information will be
used in determining the 2014 as-
sessment for taxes paid in 2015.
Assessment notices mailed near
March 1, 2014 will detail the
exact property assessments and
classifications, and will include in-
structions for appeal.
For questions regarding this
change or any property assess-
ment, please contact the Penning-
ton County Director of Equaliza-
tion at (605) 394-2175 or visit the
office at 505 Kansas City Street,
Rapid City, SD.
