by Laurie Hindman
Steve Wyant with the Wounded
Knee Museum gave an update to
the Wall City Council during their
Thursday, March 7 meeting.
Wyant informed the council he
will be moving his displays to the
new Lakota Ways building on
main street which will open this
year.
Wyant and Racen Raines with
Lakota Ways explained the new
signage they are planning to in-
stall on the building and windows
which will have the appearance of
a renaissance movement for the
arts and theater. Mayor Dave
Hahn explained they cannot give
approval for the signs until the
council receives a drawing of
where the signs will be placed.
Wyant would also like a handi-
cap parking spot in front of the
building and a bus parking sign on
the north side of the building.
Wyant and Raines will have to
meet with the street committee
and sign committee with drawings
of their proposed changes to the
building. Council did allow them to
place benches if front of their
building and informed them they
will have to supply their own trash
containers.
Building permits were approved
for Celeste Trave to move a trailer
house into the trailer court; Todd
Eisenbraun to replace roof, siding
and enlarge his porch; Beth and
Scott Miller to place a fence
around their yard and replace a
storage shed.
Resolution 13-02; rezoned prop-
erty for Juston Eisenbraun was
approved with Stan Anderson ab-
staining from the vote. Eisen-
braun’s permit to remodel a build-
ing was tentatively moved to be
heard before the Equalization
meeting.
Preston Johnson asked for a
change to his airport hanger lease
agreement. Council approved an
option to negotiate the lease at 10
cents a foot after the first 25 years
of the lease agreement has run
out.
Hahn informed the council of his
concerns for the upcoming sewer
project. The cost for the project has
increased by $35.000 and the pa-
perwork for the Bruce Dunker
property has been lost in the mail.
New paperwork has been resub-
mitted but Hahn wasn’t sure when
the city would receive a warranty
deed which would allow the project
to then go to bid. After much dis-
cussion S. Anderson said, “We
don’t have an option it’s not going
to get any cheaper and we should
proceed and hope for the best.” A
motion was approved to proceed as
per CETEC Engineer Ted Schulz’s
recommendation for the sewer
project.
Carolynn Anderson will develop
a policy for reflective clothing for
the public works department.
Final acceptance of the Motor
Vehicle records policy will have to
wait until C. Anderson receives an
answer on the point system.
The backhoe rental proposal was
dropped by the council.
In order to hold an equalization
meeting the council has to have a
quorum of four council members.
At this time it is unsure if they will
be able to hold the meeting on
Monday, March 18 due to S. Ander-
son, Rick Hustead and possibly
Pete Dunker being out of town. C.
Anderson will call the Pennington
County Office to see how they
should proceed.
The annual report was approved
by the council.
Sgt. Dan Wardle with the Pen-
nington County Sheriffs’ Depart-
ment reported they are above
hours for the city and he is pleased
that Robert Schoebrel is up and
running and doing a good job.
The council denied a pay request
from the Wall Health Services for
$8,500 until they receive an up-
date from the Wall Health Services
Board.
Bills for the City of Wall, fire de-
partment and library were ap-
proved for payment.
C. Anderson informed the coun-
cil the City of Wall’s website has
been updated and has a new look.
The District 9 meeting will be
held in New Underwood on
Wednesday, April 17.
The council approved to allow a
temporary liquor license to be
transferred from the Cactus to Fat
Boys BBQ so a wedding reception
could be held at Fat Boys. C. An-
derson will have the hearing pub-
lished in the paper.
Proof of a rabies shot which was
actually administered to an ani-
mal by a veternarian or the owner
will be required by the city from
now on.
A reply from the county on snow
removal on Fourth Avenue was
discussed by the council. It was de-
cided to have the Public Works De-
partment keep an eye on the side-
walks after the county has plowed
snow.
Garrett Bryan was approved to
attend a water training class in
Rapid City on March 12.
Council declared to surplus the
well screen from well 5 and nego-
tiate a price for the surplus item.
Well 7 repairs have been com-
pleted.
H-C Galloway has been updat-
ing the scada system for the water
department.
Pete Dunker and Bill Leonard
said they will not be running again
for the city council. Petitions can
be picked up at the Finance Offi-
cer’s office and have to be returned
back to the office by March 26 at
5:00 p.m.
The next council meeting will be
held on Thursday, April 4 at 6:30
p.m. at the Wall Community Cen-
ter meeting room.
The council approved to enter
into executive session for the pur-
pose of discussing personnel issues
according to SDCL 1-25-2. There
were no motions made after exec-
utive session and the meeting was
adjourned.
The main street building will house Wounded Knee Musem and
Lakota Ways. The new business will be open this year and will
feature arts and theater productions.

Governor Dennis Daugaard
signed a bill on Friday that will
prohibit public schools in South
Dakota from signing exclusive con-
tracts for media coverage of inter-
scholastic events such as football
and basketball games.
The legislation was supported
by South Dakota Newspaper Asso-
ciation and South Dakota Broad-
casters Association. It had been in-
troduced in response to certain
schools in South Dakota limiting
or prohibiting news media from
covering high school events.
Lobbyists for the state's largest
school districts argued that the
schools controlled the broadcast
rights to school events and that
broadcasting those events on the
Governor signs bill banning
exclusive media contracts
internet differed from other forms
of traditional journalism.
The news organizations' lobby-
ists told lawmakers that taxpayer-
supported public schools should
not be allowed to restrict media ac-
cess to school events and that the
public expected the news media to
cover those events. They also said
that broadcasting school events
over the internet allowed more
people to view them.
Senate Bill 119 was approved by
the Senate on a 27-8 vote and by
the House on a 50-20 vote. It was
sponsored by Sen. Mark Johnston,
R-Sioux Falls, and Rep. Bernie
Hunhoff, D-Yankton. The bill be-
comes law July 1.

casters Association Executive Director Steve Willard, Pierre
Capital Journal Publisher Steve Baker, Sen. Mark Johnston, S.D.
Newspaper Association General Manager and chief lobbyist
David Bordewyk and SDNA lobbyist Justin Smith.

Representative Mike Vericho
Two days left in our 88th leg-
islative session. Conference Com-
mittees are popping up all over the
place. Conference committees are
used to see if House and Senate
differences or disagreements on
bills can be resolved through com-
promise.
There are six members, three
House and three Senate, and the
committee process is the same as
any standing committee. They are
open to the public and both propo-
nent and opponent testimony are
heard.
Any one of the following recom-
mendations may be made on a
Conference Committee. The bill
can be amended, the house and
senate can concur with the amend-
ments, and amendments may be
defeated thus returning the bill to
its original version. The House and
the Senate can also reach a do not
concur conclusion and appoint a
new committee or do not appoint a
new committee, that effectively
kills the bill.
There were a few disappoint-
ments this week like the loss of
SJR 2 that would have put the re-
quirement that 2/3 of the voters
must approve any initiated meas-
ure to raise taxes. Several bills to
authorize major construction proj-
ects by the Board of Regents that
will result eventually in more Gen-
eral Fund tax dollars being spent
for maintenance and repair
passed.
This will be my last report un-
less the papers request any session
recap information. You will all
know by now how the General Bill
turned out on the 8th
Thanks for the honor of allowing
me to serve you again. When you
have had a chance to review the
session and have any questions

South Dakota has a budget for
2014 that is balanced. The last
few days of the 88th session were
spent fine tuning and negotiating
both the 2014 budget and the end
of the 2013 budget.
Fortunately the legislature
agreed with me and provided a sig-
nificant portion of the unallocated
2013 budget to Education ($5.829
M) and Health Care Providers
($5.865 M).
Based upon revenue projections,
the 2014 budget includes a three
percent increase pretty much
across the board and has provision
for some special needs in education
and health care.
While it may not be as much
many would have liked, it repre-
sents a fair distribution of the
funds available.
One of the highlights of the ses-
sion was SB 235.
It was developed by a broad base
of organizations and people that
are interested in finding new jobs
for our kids and more income for
our cities and counties.
It provides lending possibilities
for new and expanding businesses,
training for special jobs and fund-
ing for infrastructure needs. It
also addresses the need for afford-
able housing in communities
where it may not be available.
Most importantly, it will be
funded from large project taxes
and transfers from the unclaimed
property fund. Not from the Gen-
eral Fund.
One of the final tasks for legisla-
tive committees is to select specific
issues that could be approved by
the Executive Committee for sum-
mer studies.
Long term sustainability of our
schools and health care providers
must be addressed by thoughtful
leaders and my recommendations
focused on new and expanded rev-
enue sources.
Right or wrong, South Dakota
has over 100 categories of busi-
nesses that pay no sales tax. It is
estimated that over $520 million
would be generated if these ex-
emptions were removed.
A committee was appointed two
years ago to address them and but
unable to make any changes.
While the 2013 session is over, I
will continue to monitor my emails
so please communicate with me
when you have questions or com-
ments.
My state email is: sen.rampel-
berg@state.sd.us and my home
email is bsramp@yahoo.com.
My cell is 605-390-2165.
Guest Editorial ...
By Susan Henderson, Edgemont, S.D.
Powertech; a get-rich scheme gone bad? Or how a tiny Canadian com-
pany is trying to entice unsuspecting South Dakota into giving up bil-
lions of gallons of water and potentially damaging the environment?
Powertech (USA) Inc., a Canadian company with just 10 employees
owned by a stock market hedge fund, is planning a massive uranium
mining operation near Edgemont. Last year, according to their unau-
dited financial report, they lost about $1.6 million. The top four officers
are paid about $818,000. Powertech borrowed $7.5 million in exchange
for stock from a unit of GDF Suez, a huge global utility whose stock went
down 27 percent in the last year (see Financial Times, January 2013).
This move diluted the already troubled stock.
About five years age, the Powertech stock was selling for $5.43 per
share; currently it is about $0.12. Thus, stockholders who bought
100,000 shares for $543,000 now have an investment worth $12,000 - a
huge loss. Powerful people in South Dakota, including legislators, gov-
ernment officials and local investors, might have lost thousands. Un-
derstandably, they want their money back.
Powertech is in no position to promise South Dakota anything.
After the various mining permits are granted, the company could be
sold. Or huge and valuable water permit also can be sold.
We are being asked to take a huge risk with our water and environ-
ment with a company of very dubious financial stability. Powertech
never has managed any kind of uranium mine.
The uranium product “yellowcake” will be sold internationally, prin-
cipally to China and India. This market has fallen to about $40 per
pound and might go lower. France and Germany have decided to phase
out nuclear power plants and China recently has announced its plans
to expand its use of solar and wind power. The Fukushima disaster has
greatly affected this market.
Yellowcake, after refining, can be used to make nuclear weapons.
Sales require an export license, which could be revoked at any time by
our government if we became alarmed about its potential use in
weapons. This would immediately cause huge financial strain on the
Powertech operation.
Of the mineral leases in the Dewey-Burdock mine area of 10,500
acres, 37 percent are owned by the Bureau of Land Management (BLM).
No South Dakota sales tax (4.5 percent, of which the state gets half)
would be collected on yellowcake from these leases. The local tax rev-
enue (2.25 percent), split between Custer and Fall River Counties, might
not even be enough to cover the damage to our local roads.
The North Dakota Bakken oil boom has not resulted in large-scale
home purchasing by workers who do not want to be stuck with a local
home once the boom is over. Uranium mining is not a long term propo-
sition and probably will play out the same way. I question the jobs and
financial gain projections Powertech is making. We should not take this
risk.

The 88th South Dakota Legisla-
tive Session concluded last week.
During our two month legisla-
tive process, the demands are
great on our legislators. They come
to the capitol early and leave late.
They study policy, work with
constituents, and gain perspective
on the process.
Nearly 500 bills were introduced
in the 2013 legislative session. Un-
like Congress, our legislature gives
a public hearing and an up-or-
down vote on every bill.
South Dakota’s system allows
for public input and open discus-
sion of the issues our state faces.
South Dakota’s way works. We
do not have a full-time legislature
with thousands of staffers.
South Dakota relies on the
neighborly, common sense ap-
proach of its citizen legislators.
This session brought great ex-
amples of cooperation and produc-
tivity from the legislature, even as
Washington, D.C. continued to find
division and deadlock.
In South Dakota, our work this
session has been heralded as “one
of the most productive in recent
memory.”
We passed monumental reforms
to our prison system by bringing
together law enforcement, judges,
treatment providers, defense at-
torneys, and legislators from both
political parties.
The reforms will make our state
safer while holding offenders more
accountable and saving taxpayer
dollars.
South Dakota can take pride in
successful legislative session
These changes will more effec-
tively change the behavior of non-
violent offenders. This could have
been a controversial bill, but it
won broad bipartisan support.
We authorized an extension of
the Mickelson Trail to Mount
Rushmore, and founded Good
Earth State Park at Blood Run,
South Dakota’s first new state
park in forty years.
We enacted several bills for our
veterans and military personnel,
including a bill I proposed to wel-
come military spouses to South
Dakota by expediting their profes-
sional licensure processes.
We created the first scholarship
program based on students’ finan-
cial needs.
We passed legislation to make it
easier for South Dakotans to be-
come organ donors.
Finally, we passed a bipartisan
economic development package
that will meet my number one pri-
ority of growing our economy and
creating jobs in South Dakota.
South Dakota’s citizen legisla-
ture is owed a debt of gratitude for
their work this year, as in all
years. They are ranchers, teachers,
small business owners, and
nurses. For two months out of the
year, they leave their homes, their
jobs, and their families and come
to Pierre to debate ideas and share
perspectives.
They represent us in the truest
sense. The work they do is not al-
ways glamorous, but it is impor-
tant. I thank each and every legis-
lator for their service during this
session. They should take pride in
a job well done.

Books create a platform for em-
pathy. I don’t know how someone
else might feel about his or her life,
but I feel like I still have a lot to
learn yet. I have basically spent
my whole life in Wall, which is not
a bad thing at all.
However, growing up in one
place with many of the same peo-
ple, I realize that I don’t know
what a lot of the world looks like. I
haven’t experienced a multitude of
circumstances and personalities.
Reading is something that helps
me understand. In reading the sto-
ries about the lives of others
(whether their lives be fiction or
non-fiction), I am able to have a
better understanding of the world.
Through reading, I learn what
other people have gone through in
their lives. I learn that things hap-
pen to people that are both unbe-
lievably good, and horribly bad. I
read the narration by these people,
and I get to hear their thoughts.
Books bridge the gap of under-
standing. They have the power to
show what other people and other
parts of the world are like.
At Wall Community Library, we
house a variety of stories. We pro-
vide a place for these tales of the
South Dakota Certified ™ Program
rolled Cattle ™ program is admin-
istered by the SDDA. South
Dakota Certified Enrolled Cattle
™ is a tool available to South
Dakota cattle producers that pro-
vides third-party verification of
specific marketing claims.

Elm Springs News
Submitted by Peggy Gravatt
I think this wind can quit blow-
ing anytime now! We will all be
lucky if we have any ground left to
plant.
It’s back in the saddle for Shelia
and Tomilyn Trask after having
taken a trip to San Francisco for
Spring break. They left a week ago
last Saturday and returned home
on Wednesday evening. They saw
most of the historic sites such as
Muirwoods, Alcatraz, trolley cars,
Golden Gate Bridge and Fisher-
man’s Wharf, etc. They said one of
the best things they did was rent a
car and drive down the most
crooked street in the world, not
once but twice! They then went to
Petaluma to visit friends Clarence
and Genny Mazetta and saw their
dairy farm and the area around
them including the ocean.
Tom and Mick Trask took some
horses to Amish friends by
Lacrosse, Wis., on Friday and had
an adventurous trip home on icy
roads along with some mechanical
problems. They stopped in Murdo
and borrowed a car returning
home on Sunday afternoon. Mark
Trask left early Sunday morning
7for a mountain lion hunt in Ari-
zona with friend Bobby Dykeman
of New York. Hopefully, next week
they can report on the success of
the hunt. Tomilyn Trask was in
Philip on Thursday doing school
observation and in Elm Springs on
Friday doing the same.
Grandma and Grandad Kenny
Wilson got to watch grandson
Waylon for a week. They report
having a lot of fun with him. Kellie
returned to Chadron on Sunday
after a week of Spring break.
Kellie Linn reports just getting
back from the state girls basket-
ball tournament in Huron. The
Wall girls placed 7th. Congratula-
tions to all of the girls that partic-
ipated. Good job Lady Eagles!
The Gravatt’s stayed pretty
close to home this past week, as
the calves started coming a little
earlier than expected. They did get
to Rapid City on Saturday night to
watch grandson Steele in his band
concert, but were back home
shortly thereafter.
Darlene Wulf stopped by to pick
up Lawrence Burke on Tuesday
and they went to visit Lois Lapp.
On Wednesday, Lawrence went to
Wall for a haircut and picked up
Russell Burmeister and they went
to the Badlands for lunch. Friday
found Lawrence traveling to Rapid
City, where he had lunch with
Melissa. He also went to visit
Daren Nachtigall who is in the
hospital after breaking his leg.
Daren will be transferred to the
Good Sam in New Underwood for
rehab. We wish him a speedy re-
covery. On Saturday, Lawrence
and Clyde Arneson traveled to
Philip to take in the gun show.
That seems to be all of the news
we have around here for this week.

On Wednesday, March 6, Barry
and Lori Uecker and two of their
daughters, second grader Erin and
SDSU freshman Carley, along
with their friends the Doug Dub
family, all from Freeman, stayed
overnight with Glenn and Betty
Alishouse. They were on their way
to the Black Hills to snowmobile
the trails on Thursday and ski on
Friday. They all spent two nights
in Rapid City at the home of Lisa
Alishouse. Elissa and Kaden were
able to spend some time with their
cousins in the hills. The Freeman
bunch stopped in Wall at the
Glenn Alishouse home on Satur-
day for a quick brunch on their
way home.
Sunday, the 10th, unexpected
guests at the Glenn and Betty Al-
ishouse home were Bailey Schilder
of Hartford, Tanner and Rachael
Schilder of Sioux Falls and a
friend. They were on their way
home from skiing in the Black
Hills, also.
Four area school wrestlers were
recently named to state teams that
will wrestle in National Competi-
tion. One of them goes to Des
Moines, Iowa, to represent team
South Dakota at the Middle School
Duals. The other three, including
Lane Blasius, will represent team
South Dakota this summer at the
Disney Duals, Orlando, Fla. They
will leave on June 25 for the train-
ing camp held in Beresford, “Leg-
ends of Gold”, wrestling the next
day for the varsity spot; then leave
for Orlando. After the duals they
return to Beresford on July 4. Our
congratulations to all of them!
Norman and Betty Klingbile at-
tended Brycen Cheney’s basketball
game in Rapid City on Saturday.
The score was 42 to 42! Riggens
Cheney celebrated her 4th birth-
day that day. Happy birthday,
Riggens!
Thursday evening, Michelle
Lamphere helped her grand-
mother celebrate her birthday by
bringing “Chinese” for dinner. She
came down from Rapid City again
on Saturday to attend the Quilt
Show and Trunk Show with
Frances, always a fun event.
Congratulations and good luck
to Doug Kleinschmit upon his re-
tirement.
Some upcoming events to mark
on your calendar — St. Patrick’s
Church is serving a luncheon on
St. Patrick’s Day, March 17th. The
Methodist Church will have their
annual Palm Sunday dinner on
the next Sunday, March 24th. Sen-
ior Citizen’s potluck supper is at 6
p.m. on March 21st.
Happy birthday and the best of
wishes to Lauren Luedeman of
Quinn, as he celebrates 90 years!
What could be more wonderful
than to take a cruise to the
Caribbean Sea in March when
South Dakota weather is so “iffy”?!
Donna Jedlicka and Marilyn
Drewitz just returned home from
doing that. They took a flight from
Rapid City on the 1st of March
that took them to Minneapolis, At-
lanta and San Juan, Puerto Rico,
where they boarded their home for
a week — a ship of the Royal
Caribbean Line. Some of the ports
they visited were St. Thomas, St.
Lucia, Guadeloupe, Antiqua and
St. Croix in the West Indies. They
arrived back in South Dakota on
the 9th.
Gwen, Michael and Abby Hamil-
ton of Casper, visited her folks,
Leslie and Kay Williams, this past
week — coming Thursday and
leaving on Sunday.
Les Williams joined other high
school students to go to Huron to
cheer on the Lady Eagles as they
played in the State “B” basketball
tourney. Don’t know where the
girls placed but it was a “big
feather in their cap” to just get to
go and participate! A welcome
home was held at the school at 3
o’clock on Sunday afternoon.
‘Disbanded” may not have been
a good word to describe the status
of the “Easy Readers” Book Club.
It was thought to be easier to go
out for lunch rather than have
hostesses serve supper. Seven
members met at noon on Monday.
Mary Jane Doyle had a very nice
letter from Virginia Blom of Yank-
ton. May we add belated birthday
greetings to you, Virginia!
Gary and Ruby Keyser went to
Lead for the weekend to watch the
6th grade girls play basketball.
They played three games.
Thursday afternoon, Carla
Brucklacher drove to Custer to
pick up grandchildren, Noah and
Hope Tietsort, to bring them home
to spend the weekend. Noah and
Grandpa Mark worked on Noah’s
“fixer-up” pickup and Mark took
Noah on some driving experiences
now that he has his license.
Grandma and Hope played games
and cleaned house and worked on
homework together. A couple of
mornings we made excursions to
Wall Drug for the kids favorite,
biscuits and gravy and some shop-
ping. Sunday afternoon, Mark and
Carla took the kids to Rapid City
and met Ron and Jennifer Tietsort
for lunch.
Jess Williams is home this week
for “Spring” break from college in
Sioux Falls.
Our “snow-birds” have returned
after spending over four months in
Tucson, Ariz. Carol and Allin
Hodge didn’t even have to set their
clocks a head as Daylight Savings
Time was on when they left home
and was going to start again in
three days after they returned!
They enjoyed their time in Ari-
zona, only eight miles from where
son Jay Dale and family live.
The Class of “WHS 1954” met at
Wall Drug last Thursday. It is nice
they keep meeting this way and
keep in touch. Quite a few at-
tended, not necessarily of the
class.
Edith Paulsen reports that her
three great-grandsons (Hunter,
McKoy and Ryker Peterson) all got
first places in their division of AAU
wrestling at Rapid City on Satur-
day, March 9th.
It was a fun weekend taking in
the activities put on by the “Bad-
lands Quilters”. I am not a quilter
but do admire the wonderful works
of art they display — not to men-
tion door prizes. The Schnibbles
and Nibbles on Friday evening
was great fun — a big variety of
food and Peggy Lurz displaying
some of her quilted treasures. The
banquet at the Methodist Church
on Saturday night was also well
attended — great food and more
prizes. The winner of the beautiful
raffle quilt was Gigi Gallagher of
Rapid City. This lady deserved it
as she has attended a lot of the
“Badlands Quilters” get-aways —
she was the fourth person to regis-
ter this year. Congratulations to
her. The Trunk Show after the
banquet was presented by Patti
Heintz of Pierre. She had stacks
and stacks of quilts — large and
small.
March is usually considered a
windy month and it is certainly liv-
ing up to that name. Had to hang
on to your car door on Monday so
it wouldn’t get caught. Tempera-
tures for the weekly forecast in-
clude 50’s and 60’s. Great! But
when do we get moisture?
A sense of humor reduces people
and problems to their proper pro-
portions.” ~Arnold Glasow

Posted By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Many people have truly come to know Christ as Savior
after having been sincere, religious “church members”
for years. Though faithful supporters of some earthly
church organization they had never experienced the
truth of II Cor. 5:17: “If any man be in Christ he is a new
creation.” It is possible to be a member in good standing
of some church organization, yet be outside of the one
true Church of which the Bible speaks.
This is because the true Bible Church is not an organ-
ization but a living organism, a spiritual body, with a living
Head and living members. Again and again St. Paul, by
divine inspiration, calls the Church, the Body of Christ.
He says: “We being many, are one Body in Christ…”
(Rom. 12:5). “Ye are the Body of Christ, and members
in particular” (I Cor. 12:27). “We are members of His
Body” (Eph. 5:30).
How do we become members of this true Bible
Church, the Body of Christ? First, we must acknowledge
ourselves to be sinners in God’s sight, for Ephesians 2
relates how Christ died for sinful men that He might “rec-
oncile” them to God “in one Body” by the cross (Ver. 16).
Thus, when believing sinners are reconciled to God by
faith in Christ, they are regenerated, given a new life, by
the Spirit, and by the Spirit are baptized into the Church,
the Body of Christ.
“Not by works of righteousness which we
have done, but according to His mercy He
saved us, by the washing of regeneration, and
renewing of the Holy Spirit” (Titus 3:5).
“For by one Spirit are we all baptized into one
body” (I Cor. 12:13).
Every one of us should ask himself: “Have I been bap-
tized by the Spirit into the Body of Christ?” If not, trust
Christ as your Savior and become a member of the one
true Bible Church. Then associate yourself with some
local assembly where Christ is honored and the Bible
taught, “rightly divided.”

Mayor Cermak of Chicago, died
Monday morning at 6:55 of the
wound inflicted in the attempted
assassination of President Roo-
sevelt. The Mayor had put up a
brave fight for life and at several
times was believed to be out of
danger. Cermak rose from a hum-
ble birth in a Bohemian village to
the highest position obtainable in
America’s second largest city.
The Wall boys basketball team
defeated New Underwood, 21-13,
to win the District 30 Tournament.
The local Bank opened Wednes-
day morning by permission of the
State Banking Department but for
a short time withdrawals of de-
posits will be limited to 10 percent
of the amount each depositor had
on Saturday, March 4th when the
National Moratorium was de-
clared. This restriction is in line
with what has been recommended
by the Banking Department, and
the Directors of this Bank feel that
by the first of April all restrictions
will be withdrawn.
All of the present teachers of the

Sgt. Chas. Heathershaw, son of
Mr. and Mrs. Lou Heathershaw of
Rapid City, and Verna Pourier,

Pourier, were recently wed in Den-
ver, where Chas. is located.
Al Strandell has moved into his
remodeled and enlarged store
building. He is inviting the general
public to come in and view his new
place Saturday. Starting a few
years ago with the handling of a
few items of fruits and vegetables
in the place which he has been
using as temporary quarters, he
has continued to add items and
from time to time enlarge his place
of business, until now he has one
of the largest and best stocked gro-
cery store in Wall. His new place
has been enlarged by the removal
of partitions, adding 264 square
feet to his floor area. New shelves
and display tables have been built
and the entire interior painted a
pale blue. Fluorescent lighting fix-
tures completes the decorative
scheme.
Emil Sieler moved the Standard
Oil office building Monday, which
he bought from Deo Hawley last
fall. He intends to use it as a wash
house.
Two young lads visiting in Wall,
were seen Friday doing consider-
able damage to the Gospel Taber-
nacle property. A number of win-
dows were broken, dishes on the
inside were broken and two fires
were started in the main part of
the building. Neighbors heard
glass being broken and notified au-
thorities and others in charge of
the church property. Rev. Anderson
from Rapid City came down and
stated he would talk it over with
the States Attorney before making
charges against the boys. Joe Biel-
maier assisted Rev. Anderson in
evaluating the damage.

Kadoka were rather easily win-
ners of the district basketball tour-

in the finals.
Frank Kleinschmit has been try-
ing out his new machinery by re-
moving snow from the streets of
Wall. Frank has three new self
propelled machines — a four-
wheel drive turn-a-dozer, and two
carry-alls. These are all electri-
cally controlled and on rubber.
BIRTH: Born to Mr. and Mrs.
Walter Hoffman of Creighton, a
son, March 6.
Last Wednesday, the 4th, sev-
eral from the Creighton neighbor-
hood ventured into Wall to attend
Emil Muller’s sale — the sale was
postponed. Going in there was not
trouble, but an hour later trying to
get back home was a different
story. Three car loads banded to-
gether and with their combined ef-
forts of scooping snow, putting on
chains and pushing, they arrived
home after two hours on the road.

BIRTHS: Born to Captain and
Mrs. Richard Hamilton at Vacav-
ille, Calif., a boy, Sunday, March 3.
This arrival makes seven grand-
sons but no granddaughters for
Mr. and Mrs. Harry Babcocks.
Wall, which for the past year or
so appeared to be located on top of
numerous springs, now seems to
have underground rivers that
want to come to the surface at nu-
merous places. The City Council
was summoned into a special ses-
sion Tuesday morning after areas
in the northern part of town was
being flooded from underground
water sprouting to the surface.
The City diagnosed the trouble as
“old age” for the water mains. It
may become necessary, says H. M.
Halton to float a bond issue to re-
place the forty-five year old water
mains. Patching, he says, is only a
temporary relief of water shut-offs.
Contracts have been awarded
for the construction of a three-
room addition to the Wall School
and work is scheduled to start
within a week and completion date
set for August 15. Total cost for the
building according to the con-
tracted price is $45,644, most of
which is a grant from the federal
government under the “federal im-
pacted area” law. The one-story,
three classroom addition will con-
nect to the original building to the
south, and will be a replica of the
new part that was built a couple of
years ago to the north.

I-90 detour from Wall to Cactus
Flat will go into effect in a couple
of weeks if the weather permits
was the statement given at the
Highway Construction meeting
held in the First Western Bank
basement Monday afternoon.
Travel will be routed around
through Philip or down through
the Badlands National Monument.
Two grading contractors plan to
begin work in two weeks. They will
begin just a mile east of Wall on
the first interchange. At this time
the road between Wall and Cactus
Flat will be closed and probably
will remain closed for the next two
years.
The Catholics of the Wall Parish
held a potluck dinner at the Wall
Legion Hall Sunday evening and
Father Craig Cower displayed the
blueprints of their new church.
The ultra modern edifice will cover
a ground area of approximately 80
feet by 90 feet replacing the pres-
ent building of about a third that
size. The new church will have
many innovations. The main
entry-way will face the northeast
with the first dome covered area
looking through to a glassed-in
garden. This entryway leads to a
vestibule that leads off in several
directions to cloak rooms, class-
rooms, library, chapel as well as to
the main auditorium and back
kitchen area.
The Wall City Council, at their
meeting March 1, accepted the
offer of $35,000.00 from Estes
Bros. for the seven lots along the
southeastern edge of the Rodeo
Grounds on which they plan to
build an all enclosed lumber yard.

If you’ve had the misfortune of
traveling on U.S. Highway 14 from
Wall toward Philip, you will be re-
lieved to learn that part of it is
going to be resurfaced. Dave
Gustafson and Company, Inc.,
from Sioux Falls is currently stock-
piling some 40,000 tons of gravel
material between Quinn and Cot-
tonwood. The gravel will be used
for the asphalt mix and shoulders
for the resurfacing project.
Gustafson’s six trucks will be haul-
ing the gravel material until mid-
April. The actual resurfacing,
which will run from the eastern
line of Pennington County on U.S.
14 to Interstate 90 just west of
Wall, will begin around the first of
May.
Members of the Badlands
Sportsmen Club gave the New
Town Dam a “face-lift” on Sunday,
March 13. The water level at the
dam had receded in recent years,
making it almost impossible for
the boat ramp to be used. The club
reshaped the ramp and dumped
gravel on it, so the ramp could
more readily be used at the lower
water level. The club cleared an
area next to the ramp. They
dumped sand there to create a
small beach area. Trash was also
cleaned up from around the dam,
giving it a more aesthetic setting
for people to enjoy summer water
sports.

A grass fire about two miles east
of Wall (southeast of the dump,
north of Highway 14) consumed
about 50 acres of Darla Wolf ’s land
before the Wall Fire Department
contained its spread under less
than ideal conditions. Winds and a
very muddy pasture greeted the
fire department as it responded to
the 1 p.m. call last Wednesday. Ac-
cording to Fire Chief Butch Kitter-
man the department sent out
three grass units and had two
four-wheel drive units on site. An-
other larger unit remained on the
highway with a tanker. No injuries
reported. The fire was under con-
trol within 90 minutes.
Last month English teacher
Nancy Iversen’s full-time contract
was reduced to half-time by the
Wall Board of Education following
recommendation by administra-
tors. Last week the administration
further reduced Iversen from half-
time to, in effect, no time. The
board motioned to accept the ad-
ministration’s full-time reduction
of Iversen based on “additional in-
formation” gathered since last
month’s half-time reduction action.

The State “B” Wrestling Tourna-
ment was everything it was billed
to be. Great competition along
with some very heart-felt mo-
ments. Brady Huether showed us
how it’s done by bringing home a
6th place medal in the 119 lb.
weight class.
The boys’ basketball team
started out in good position for the
district tournament. The team was
seeded second so that gave them
some court advantage. The home
court didn’t seem to work to their
advantage. “Nothing they did sur-
prised us,” said coach Ammann.
“Little Wound is an extremely bal-
anced team with good ball han-
dlers and enormous size.” Little
Wound defeated the Wall Eagles
with a final score of 83 to 54.
On February 25, the Lady Ea-
gles ended their season with a
record of seven wins and 13 losses.
They traveled to Kyle for the first
round district match up. Kyle de-
feated the Lady Eagles with a final
score of 84 to 38.

Wall vs. Hanson
On March 7th, the Lady Eagles
played their first game in the state
tournament in Huron, South
Dakota.
Their first match up was against
Hanson. It was a tough battle, and
unfortunately, the Eagles came up
short as Hanson took the win with
a final score of 53 to 34.
Autumn Schulz lead the team in
scoring with seventeen points fol-
lowed by Sadie O'Rourke with
eleven points and three steals.
Josie Blasius lead the team in
rebounds as Kaitlin Schreiber
came up with four for herself as
well.
"The girls played hard, but un-
fortunately, things throughout the
game did not go our way. I was
very happy to see how well the
girl's kept their composure till that
final buzzer buzzed, which shows
how well they are a respectable
team," added Coach Hess.

Wall vs. Parker
On day two of the tournament,
the Lady Eagles played Parker.
The Eagles came up short when
the final score reached 48 to 30 in
favor of Parker.
O'Rourke and Schulz lead the
team in points as each one earned
herself 10 and Schreiber came up
right behind them as well with
nine points.
Schreiber lead the team in re-
bounds with nine as Blasius
pitched in five.
"The girls have been not only
battling on the basketball court,
but behind the scenes, they have
been battling sickness.
Several of the players have been
sick all week with various things,
but when it comes time for us to
play, they have been working so
hard and pushing their bodies to
its own limits, and that is all I can
ask them to do; give it 100 percent
and leave it all on the court," said
Coach Hess.

as Schulz scored in the last sec-
onds.
Both Johnston and Schulz lead
the team with points as each came
in with seventeen points followed
by Blasius with fifteen.
Schulz, a senior, led the team in
rebounds with eight, but many of
her teammates also played a huge
role in rebounding as Schreiber
had seven, Blasius seven, John-
ston six, O'Rourke three, Linn
three, Bailey Lytle two, and Mon-
ica Bielmaier one.
All the team's rebounds helped
as the Eagles dominate the boards
with 40 rebounds over Timber
Lake's 23.
"I am very happy with how well
this season has gone. Ashley and I
have had a privilege of working
with such a special group of girls
whom push themselves each day
at practice, and they come together
when a game presents itself as one
team preparing for a battle.
I know our future as a team is
bright, and I hope the girls con-
tinue to feed off of this state expe-
rience as they work hard in the off
season so we can return to the
tournament in the future. It was a
great season girls," said Coach
Hess.

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY
with Dr. James
Dobson
Dr. Dobson Answers
your Questions
QuESTION: How should I re-
spond to my spouse’s verbal and
emotional abuse? This has been a
problem for the greater part of our
marriage. I have never been physi-
cally harmed in any way, but the
constant put-downs and mind
games have made my life miser-
able. Some of my friends say I
should pursue a divorce, but others
have suggested that I don’t have
biblical grounds. A few folks in this
second group have even told me
that my only concern is to “submit”
and continue loving my spouse in
spite of the mistreatment. What do
you think I should I do?
ANSWER: There are two things
you need to understand about your
situation. First, it’s more common
than you may suspect. There’s a
surprising amount of emotional and
verbal abuse going on behind closed
doors, even in Christian marriages.
This suggests: 1) that you’re not
alone; and 2) that many people
have devoted a great deal of time,
thought, and energy to coming up
with solutions. Among them are
some of our most gifted and highly
qualified marriage therapists and
counselors. In other words, answers
are available if you’ll take the time
and trouble to look for them.
The second point is this: the state
of affairs you’ve described isn’t good
for either of you—not you or your
spouse. It’s harmful and destructive
to everyone concerned. That in-
cludes any children who may be
part of the picture. This means that
something must be done to change
it as quickly as possible. We can al-
most guarantee that the change
won’t come about as a result of
adopting a “submissive” attitude to-
ward abuse.
In connection with this last
thought, we’ve observed that there
are generally two kinds of people
who advise “submission” in cases
like this: 1) a few male pastors,
counselors, and friends who take a
simplistic view of passages like
Ephesians 5:22-33 and Colossians
3:18-25; and 2) abusive husbands.
Our response, especially to the lat-
ter group, is that it isn’t up to a
man to see to it that his wife “sub-
mits.” The apostle has given tasks
to each partner in the relationship.
Each partner is responsible only for
his or her own assignment. To put
it bluntly, men need to forget about
“submission.” job is to learn what it
means to love their spouses “as
Christ loved the church.”
So much for theology. Let’s move
on to something more practical.
What can you do to take your mar-
riage in a more positive direction?
We suggest you begin by investigat-
ing your options. All too often peo-
ple in your position assume that
they have only two alternatives: to
stay put and suffer, or file for di-
vorce. This isn’t necessarily true. As
a matter of fact, there may be a
number of other ways to break the
negative cycle.
You can find out more by setting
up an appointment with a Chris-
tian marriage and family counselor.
Make sure that the therapist you
choose understands the dynamics
of abuse, power, and control, and
that he or she is well trained in the
highly specialized field of marital
conflict. It would be ideal, of course,
if your spouse were to seek counsel-
ing as well, but we don’t recom-
mend that the two of you do this
jointly, at least not in the begin-
ning. It’s far too easy for an abusive
spouse to manipulate a couples
counseling situation and subse-
quently turn it to his own advan-
tage or use it as an excuse for fur-
ther abusive behavior. If the
thought of professional counseling
is too overwhelming, consider talk-
ing to a pastor or a good friend, or
see if you can get a neighbor to take
you to a community center where
there are people trained to deal
with domestic abuse issues. The
idea is to find out what you can do,
not what you can’t do, and to act ac-
cordingly.
As you consider your options for
obtaining professional assistance,
it’s vital to bear in mind that this
probably isn’t going to be a quick
and easy process. Abuse is usually
rooted in deeply entrenched pat-
terns of thought and behavior, and
you can’t expect to reverse those
patterns in a couple of counseling
sessions. While working on the
problem, you may find it necessary
to create a crisis by giving your hus-
band an ultimatum. A spouse who
is acting out in this fashion can
sometimes be persuaded to make a
change if his partner has the
courage to stand up for herself. Tell
him, "Either we both get counseling
(separately), or I'm moving out
until you're ready to help me re-
solve this issue." Separation may be
what it takes to open his eyes to his
behavior and to stimulate some
badly needed self-examination on
his part. Naturally, you’ll want to
make sure that your support sys-
tem is in place and that you actu-
ally have a safe place to go—the
home of a friend, family member, or
neighbor—before you put the mat-
ter to him in these terms. Lay your
plans, line up your resources, and
make your arrangements prior to
packing your bags and walking out
the door.
In the meantime, you may want
to have a conversation with an at-
torney—not to talk about divorce,
but simply to gather information
about your options. Among other
things, find out what’s involved in
arranging a legal separation. In
many cases, a temporary separa-
tion is exactly what’s needed in a
situation like yours. Marriages get
stuck in deadly ruts when spouses
become blind to the hurtful nature
of their words and actions. If sepa-
ration is what it takes to open your
husband’s eyes and stimulate some
self-examination on his part, then
so be it. An abuser can sometimes
be persuaded to make a change if
his partner has the courage to bring
about a crisis in the relationship—
in other words, to say, “I’ve had
enough.”
Before closing, perhaps it would
be helpful to say a few words about
the underlying causes of abuse and
list some of the identifying marks of
genuinely “abusive” speech and be-
havior. Domestic abuse is almost al-
ways a technique for gaining and
maintaining control. An emotional
abuser keeps others under his
thumb by blaming and shaming.
He uses name-calling, swearing,
and other forms of contemptuous
speech to convince his partner that
she is unworthy of better treat-
ment. In most cases he is highly
manipulative, displays narcissistic
tendencies, and flatly refuses to ac-
knowledge any personal responsi-
bility for difficulties in the mar-
riage. If any of this sounds familiar,
you are more than justified in tak-
ing whatever steps are necessary to
reverse the situation. A good coun-
selor can help you recognize to
what extent you may have become
brainwashed by your spouse’s be-
havior and thus lulled into a state
of resignation and silent acceptance
of your lot.

TIME FOR GEN-XERS TO
PuT IRAS TO WORK
Richard Wahlstrom
www.edwardjones.com
If you’re a “Gen-Xer,” born be-
tween 1965 and 1980, you’ve still
got many years to go until you re-
tire. At this stage of your life, what
can you do to help build resources
for the retirement lifestyle you’ve
envisioned?
Besides having time on your
side, you’ve got another key advan-
tage in saving for retirement —
specifically, you probably haven’t
reached your peak earning years.
This helps you in at least two
ways. First, of course, it means you
should be able to increase your re-
tirement savings in the future.
And second, it might mean you’re
still eligible to contribute to one of
the most effective retirement ac-
counts available — the Roth IRA.
When you invest in a Roth IRA,
your earnings are distributed tax
free, provided you’ve had your ac-
count at least five years and you
don’t start taking withdrawals
until you’re at least 59½. For the
2013 tax year, you can put in up to
$5,500 to a Roth IRA; when you
reach 50, you’ll also be able to
make “catch-up” contributions.
(Currently, the catch-up limit is
$1,000.)
However, the ability to make
Roth IRA contributions is limited
by income. For 2013, you can make
the full contribution to a Roth IRA
if you are single and your modified
adjusted gross income (MAGI) is
less than $112,000. Above this
amount, your contribution limit
will be gradually reduced, and if
your MAGI reaches $127,000, you
won’t be able to contribute at all. If
you’re married filing jointly, the
lower limit is $178,000 and the
cutoff amount is $188,000.
Of course, if you have to consider
these income limits, you’re making
a reasonably good living, and you
may well be on a career path that
will take you to even greater earn-
ings — which is why you should
think about putting in as much as
possible to a Roth IRA while you’re
eligible.
If your earnings are already over
the limit for the Roth IRA, you can
still contribute to a traditional
IRA. Your contributions can grow
tax deferred, which means your
money can accumulate faster than
it would on an account on which
you paid taxes every single year.
Taxes are due upon withdrawal,
and withdrawals prior to age 59½
may be subject to a 10% IRS
penalty.
But what if your income level is
such that you could contribute to
either a Roth IRA or a traditional
IRA? Which one should you
choose?
There’s no “right” answer for
everyone. On the one hand, the
Roth’s tax-free distributions may
be more attractive to you than the
tax-deferred growth potential of a
traditional IRA if you expect your
tax rate to be higher in the future.
However, depending on your in-
come level and whether you have
access to a 401(k) or other retire-
ment plan at work, your tradi-
tional IRA contributions may be
fully or partially tax-deductible.
But these types of calculations are
not easy, so before making the tra-
ditional-or-Roth choice, you’ll need
to consult with your tax advisor.
In any case, now is the time to
capitalize on your Gen-X status
and use the years ahead to invest
consistently in an IRA and other
tax-advantaged retirement ac-
counts. As an investor, time is your
greatest ally — so take advantage
of it.
Whether it’s a tablet with an ed-
ucational purpose or a big screen
displaying the latest video game,
the use of electronic technology is
skyrocketing among kids. In fact,
according to the Kaiser Family
Foundation, children ages eight to
18 spend more than seven and a
half hours with electronics every
day.
Unfortunately, all of that screen
time can cause eye fatigue, and ul-
timately have an impact on your
child’s overall vision and eye
health.
To view things closer, our eyes
automatically adjust by drawing
inward; our pupils get smaller to
focus, and our eye muscles adjust
so we can see a clear image. As a
result, extended use of electronic
screens can cause tired, blurry or
irritated eyes.
Intense focus on a video screen
also leads to a diminished blink
rate, which can result in eye in-
juries.
Although there is no scientific
evidence that computers and hand-
held electronic devices directly
cause vision problems, using these
devices wisely can help prevent eye
fatigue and strain, as well as asso-
ciated headaches, blurred vision
and dry eyes.
To help protect your child’s vi-
sion, consider these tips from
Ameritas, a leading provider of
dental, vision and hearing care
plans:
•Know that prolonged use of
electronic devices can exacerbate
underlying eye conditions, so elec-
tronics should be used in modera-
tion. Limit screen time to two
hours or less a day (including
watching TV, playing video games
and using mobile phones).
•Encourage intentional blinking
while electronic devices are in use
to help refresh eyes with natural
moisture that helps prevent bacte-
rial infections, dry spots and
corneal breakdown.
•Reduce additional eye strain by
managing glare from windows and
using low-watt bulbs in light fix-
tures.
•Keep computer screens 20 to 28
inches away from the face.
•Practice a rule of 20s to give
eyes a rest. Every 20 minutes, ask
your child to look at least 20 feet
away for 20 seconds before refocus-
ing attention up close again.
•Move around and change posi-
tions periodically while using a de-
vice.
•Watch for signs of eyestrain
while electronic devices are in use,
such as squinting, frowning at the
screen or rubbing eyes.
•If vision problems or discomfort
arise, schedule an appointment
with an eye doctor for a profes-
sional evaluation.
When taking into account time
at the office in front of a computer
screen, many adults regularly use
electronic devices for as long as, or
even longer than, their children.
Following the same advice not only
sets a good example, but it can help
protect your own eye health.

Custer State Park, Mickelson Trail make
worldwide top 10 lists
Two South Dakota state parks
recently earned spots on separate
top ten lists as compiled by a
worldwide adventure company.
Active travel company Austin-
Lehman Adventures gave the
Mickelson Trail the number seven
position on their top ten bike rides
(http://www.foxnews.com/travel/20
13/02/12/worlds-top-ten-bike-
rides/). The company’s European
cycling director logged more than
10,000 miles across the globe to
create the list. The Mickelson Trail
was noted for its blasted hard-rock
tunnels and more than 100 con-
verted railroad bridges. Other hon-
ored trails included Glacier Na-
tional Park in Montana, the San
Juan Islands in Washington state,
and locations in Austria, France,
and Germany.
A few days later, South Dakota
was named number 10 on the com-
pany’s list of best wildlife viewing
destinations in the world
(http://www.foxnews.com/travel/20
13/02/26/worlds-top-10-wildlife-
destinations/). The list specifically
cited Custer State Park for their
variety of wildlife, from the
brawny bison to the passive prairie
dog. Visitors are also charmed by
the begging burros, big horn sheep,
pronghorn, wild turkeys, elk and
mountain goats. Other locations on
the list included Yellowstone Na-
tional Park, the Galapagos Islands
and the Amazon River Basin.
“We’re honored that these two
parks have been recognized as
some of the best in the world,” said
Doug Hofer, South Dakota State
Parks director. “The natural
beauty and amazing hospitality of
our state make these places special
to residents and visitors alike, no
matter where you go.”
The recognition is no surprise to
Governor Daugaard, who intro-
duced a bill this year that would
fund projects to enhance both the
Mickelson Trail and Custer State
Park. It would also establish a new
state park that is anticipated to
gain much recognition as a nature
area and educational site for Na-
tive American culture.
“In South Dakota, we value the
outdoors,” said Daugaard. “Our
heritage is based on outdoor activ-
ities – hunting pheasants, fishing
in the Missouri River, camping in
our state parks, and enjoying the
beauty of the Black Hills. The re-
cent recognition of these two at-
tractions shows we shine brightly
throughout the world.”
