The Local Board of Equalization
met on Monday, March 18 at the
Wall Community Center meeting
room. Mayor Dave Hahn called the
meeting to order with board mem-
bers: Bill Leonard, Pete Dunker,
Jerry Morgan and Mike Anderson
present. Finance Officer and
School Board member Carolynn
Anderson was also present.
There were 13 appellants who
appeared before the board.
The board approved to lower a
1973 mobile home whose next
2013 total assessed value was
$7,700 to $5,000. The homeowners
said there has been no improve-
ments made on the home and the
mobile home needs to be jacked up
and releveled due to past flooding
issues.
Several home owners from the
Shearer addition came before the
board and were approved to have
their taxes lowered.
Family members from the
Crown Country Estates who were
annexed into the city last year are
debating whether they should
annex back out of the city. C. An-
derson will check into an Urban
Surface District which might be
the better route for them to go as
it was not in their intention to be
annexed in and out.
The board approved to remove a
trailer house that was destroyed
by a fire off of the tax roll.
A homeowner who had gone to
the county due to an error in
square footage for his home was
granted a lower assessed value by
the county. The local board as a
formality also had to approve the
lower assessed value.
Two homes were lowered due to
recent appraisals by finance com-
panies.
Hahn stressed to each appellant
that the county may not accept the
Local Equalization Board sug-
gested value and to watch their
mail closely for any correspon-
dence from the county.
Local Equalization Board met on March 18
The Midland community opened
its doors to host the fourth devel-
opment session for Stronger Econ-
omics Together, a group which
meets monthly to build a blueprint
for regional economic development
in the Badlands/Bad River region.
The group met Tuesday. March
12, at the Open Bible Church, and
focused on the topics of developing
a vision statement and goals for
the plan.
Prior to the working meeting,
Midland representatives offered
city tours, culminating in a walk-
through of the newly named,
“Lava Waters Inn,” formerly the
Stropppel Inn. While visitors wan-
Midland hosts SET’s fourth session

dered through the historic build-
ing, stories of history and new
ideas were shared.
“About 30 people toured Mid-
land and the Lava Water Hotel. It
was exciting to hear Kathy
Jensen's future plans for the hotel
and to see the progress she has al-
ready made,” said Beth Flom, Mid-
land member on the SET team.
Session four opened with a per-
sonality assessment, helping
group members to understand
their leadership style, as well as
others in the group. This led to
time spent conceiving a vision
statement in line with regional as-
sets and values. Between this ses-
sion and the next, a small group
will be forming the ideas into a
solid vision statement that will
represent the direction of the en-
tire group.
Brainstorming of goals and
learning how to write them to be
“SMART” rounded out the session.
The group came up with 20 broad
goals that will be narrowed and
prioritized during the next four
sessions. Current group members
can share ideas they have identi-
fied.
The next SET session will be
held in Philip, Tuesday, April 9.
The educational session will be
from 5:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m. To as-
sist the group in forming their
plan, guest speakers from the Gov-
ernor’s Office of Economic Devel-
opment and the South Dakota
Labor Market Information Center
will present economic data on jobs
and industries.
All interested people in the
Haakon/Jackson/eastern Penning-
ton county area are urged to par-
ticipate.

The first annual meeting for the
newly formed Eastern Pennington
County Ambulance District was
held on Thursday, March 21 at the
Wall Community Center meeting
room.
With 13 community members
present to nominate board of direc-
tor positions, an unanimous ballot
was cast for Darwin Haerer and
Jem Kjerstad. Their terms are for
three years.
Election of officers was then
held. Wally Hoffman was voted in
as president, Jem Kjerstad the
new vice president and Carolynn
Anderson as secretary/treasurer
by the board members.
Resolution 13-01: Tax Levy with
tax codes was approved by the
board.
The financial report was re-
viewed by the board. Anderson has
changed the format of the finan-
cials which will allow her to per-
form better check and balances
with the finances. The board ap-
proved the report.
March bills were approved for
payment.
John Kitterman gave an update
on the Dunns number profile. Kit-
terman explained the number is
used to apply for grants and it al-
lows PPC to log in and obtain a
credit status report. Anderson will
look into the issue with the possi-
bility of applying for a new number
for the ambulance service district.
Kitterman also noted PPC will
be doing a document training with
the Emergency Medical Techni-
cians (EMT) staff.
The Wall Ambulance Service is
comprised of 20 EMTS and Para-
medics at this time.
Kitterman would also like to
hold an EMT class this fall.
Discussion on service agree-
ments with townships was held.
Anderson said, “A township was
wondering why there was a service
agreement since the district had
been formed.” Board member
Elden Helms will look into the
issue and see if he can get clarifi-
cation on the matter.
Hoffman announced the next
meeting will be held on Thursday,
April 11 at the Wall Community
Center meeting room at 7:00 p.m.
Hoffman adjourned the meeting.

Company gets approval to drill
for oil in Pennington County
(Reprinted with permission
from the Rapid City Journal.)
Minutes after receiving her state
permits Thursday, Natali Ormis-
ton said she will start drilling next
week in Pennington County, where
her search for oil and gas is taking
her into unlikely terrain.
Ormiston, who lives in Dead-
wood and is a member of the Fer-
ley oil-exploration family, wants to
sink two wildcat wells two miles
west of Wasta in eastern Penning-
ton County.
Her targets are 9,700 feet deep:
pockets of oil she believes have
been locked within the extremely
hard rock of the Precambrian for-
mation for one billion years or
longer.
No one has produced commercial
quantities of oil and gas from the
Precambrian in South Dakota or
neighboring states.
State geologist Derric Iles said
at the permit hearing Thursday
that her company’s chance of suc-
cess is “fairly low.”
But Iles added that he has no
strong evidence to back him up be-
cause so little is known about the
Precambrian in South Dakota.
“It’s very much exploratory,” he
said.
Ormiston’s company is Quartz
Operations, which she formed last
year. Her drilling manager, Louis
Loehr of Gillette, Wyo., is a 40-year
veteran of working at oil fields
around the world.
Loehr said China, Russia and
Venezuela have produced oil from
fields tapping the Precambrian.
He has worked on wells ranging
from 300 feet to 24,000 feet in
depth.
“This is a new area,” Loehr said.
“It’s hard. It’s old.”
The company didn’t contest the
additional financial surety sought
by state regulators. The company
had already posted a $20,000
statewide bond and before the
hearing ended Thursday an addi-
tional $110,000 was put up for one
well and $130,000 for the other.
State mining and minerals offi-
cials conservatively estimated the
cost per well to be $3 million.
Samples of cuttings that will be
recovered from the wells will be
sent to the state geologist’s office.
The state Board of Minerals and
Environment unanimously ap-
proved the permits. The acting
chairman, Lee McCahren of Ver-
million, sounded more intrigued
and excited as more information
was presented by the witnesses.
“We’re going to go out and see it
when this takes place,” McCahren
said.
“You’re invited,” Ormiston
replied.
Quartz Operations originally
filed for seven other well sites, but
they were rejected at the applica-
tion level of the process. Some
lacked complete information.
The proposed field would stretch
north-south for about four miles,
starting about 1 mile south of In-
terstate 90. The two permitted
wells carry the names Northern
Points 1 and 2.
Mike Lees, a hydrologist for the
minerals and mining office in the
state Department of Environment
and Natural Resources, said
Quartz Operations personnel
didn’t explain how they reached
the belief they will find oil at those
locations.
Willson and McKee to visit Wall School
The concert will include mate-
rial from their nine recordings, in-
cluding their latest collection from
their last tour to Scotland.
Rocky Mountain Celtic… what
Celtic becomes when it settles
comfortably, three generations in
the west! Americans doing what
they do best – interpreting their
roots music in fresh and original
ways!! The combination of their
Celtic heritage plus their Montana
and Colorado roots gives audiences
a distinctive musical experience.
Original compositions with an an-
cient sound, and traditional pieces
are re-dressed in Willson and
McKee’s customized style.
Performing and studying with
master musicians, storytellers and
dancers in Ireland and Scotland,
guarantees sparkle and depth with
a Willson and McKee event!
Repeated honors at such events
as the Walton’s of Dublin Interna-
tional Songwriting Competition at
the Milwaukee Irish Festival and
instrumental awards such as a
National Instrumental Champi-
onship guarantee the highest qual-
ity performances. The combination
of blazing instrumentals, warm
harmony vocals, a lot of laughter
and a ceili dance or two translates
into… never a dull moment!
A Willson and McKee concert is
a curiously un-tamed moment in
time, gathering past and present…
a comfortable and engaging musi-
cal evening with friends.

My senior project
Governor Dennis Daugaard has
joined 32 other governors in call-
ing for continuation of wrestling as
an Olympic sport.
The group of governors has sent
a letter to International Olympic
Committee Executive Board Pres-
ident Dr. Jacques Rogge, urging
the committee to reconsider its re-
cent decision to eliminate
wrestling as an Olympic sport in
2020.
Wrestling was a key sport in an-
cient civilization, and it has contin-
ued to enrich the Olympic tradi-
tion, the letter states.
“The Olympic Games are meant
to provide a venue for people from
Gov. Daugaard, other governors
want to save Olympic wrestling
all nations to overcome differences
and forge lasting relationships,
and wrestling has contributed to
these Olympic attributes,” the gov-
ernor’s wrote. “We believe that re-
newing or renovating the Olympics
should respect key Olympic tradi-
tions. We would also encourage a
transparent voting system for fu-
ture votes on which sports should
be included as part of the Olympic
Games. As public servants, we
hold transparency as a sacred
principle, and we would encourage
the IOC to abide by that same
principle.”
Governor Daugaard said
wrestling is a popular sport in
South Dakota, and the state has
sent several wrestlers to the
Olympic Games over the years –
including Randy Lewis of Rapid
City, who won a gold medal in
1984.
Drought recovery in 2013 isn’t
looking promising for South
Dakota’s grazing lands.
`Natural Resources Conservation
Service (NRCS) State Range Spe-
cialist Stan Boltz, Huron, SD, says
even with normal precipitation,
forage production will still be lim-
ited this summer. “If we were to
get normal precipitation now until
peak production which is about
July 1, western and central South
Dakota would only have about 60
to 70 percent production.”
At this level, these drought dam-
aged pastures can only sustain 55-
to 65 percent of normal stocking.
Eastern S.D., counties that
didn’t suffer as much drought dur-
ing 2012 could expect about 80
percent of normal stocking rates.
The lower production rate is be-
cause grassland plants’ ability to
recover from drought takes several
seasons with normal moisture, and
longer with limited precipitation,
like we’re seeing now, explains
Boltz.
South Dakota livestock produc-
ers can get help for handling the
impact of drought by developing a
Drought Plan with the aid of the
SD Drought Tool, available from
NRCS.
“The Drought Tool is a good
planning tool to set up a Drought
Plan.” Boltz says, “We’re encourag-
Drought recovery/forage
production looking short
ing people to have a Drought Plan
in place so as conditions change,
producers are ready and can act on
the management decisions they
have already made ahead of time.”
The Drought Tool helps produc-
ers assess current conditions by
using the past two years of precip-
itation to predict the expected per-
cent of normal forage production
and then stocking rate.
Users can use the weather sta-
tions or enter their own precipita-
tion data. The tool also walks pro-
ducers through development of a
current drought plan.
Computer users can download
the SD Drought Tool from the SD
NRCS website or producers can
stop in their local USDA Service
Center for one-on-one assistance.
“Every operation is unique with
different goals and resources.
Sometimes,” says Boltz, “just talk-
ing with resource professionals re-
garding land management deci-
sions and options can be the
biggest benefit and reassurance
producers need for their farming
and ranching decisions.”
Last year in South Dakota,
NRCS worked with people on more
than 4,700 plans that resulted in
conservation work improving or
enhancing the quality of more
than 1.7 million acres.
Governor Dennis Daugaard sent
a letter to Director of the National
Park Service Jonathan Jarvis, pro-
posing to allow the South Dakota
Department of Game, Fish and
Parks to operate the Elk Mountain
Campground at Wind Cave Na-
tional Park in the Black Hills of
South Dakota.
The National Park Service re-
cently announced that the 64-site
Elk Mountain Campground would
be closed through the 2013 camp-
ing season due to budget cuts.
Gov. Daugaard offered to assist
Wind Cave by continuing to pro-
vide this recreational opportunity
for visitors to South Dakota.
“South Dakota has a worldwide
reputation as a vacation destina-
tion, and the staff of our state
parks does an excellent job in pro-
viding a pleasant camping experi-
ence,” Gov. Daugaard wrote in his
letter. “In order to assist the Na-
tional Park Service in providing
recreational opportunities for visi-
tors to Wind Cave, the State of
Governor Daugaard offers to
run Wind Cave campground
South Dakota would be pleased to
operate the Elk Mountain Camp-
ground for the 2013 season.”
The Governor added that, be-
cause 6,600 people used the 64
campsites last year, he believes the
state could operate the camp-
grounds at a profit.
South Dakota’s Department of
Game, Fish and Parks manages a
vast state park system, with al-
most eight million visitors each
year. In 2012, more than 270,000
campers utilized campsites in
state parks and recreation areas
throughout South Dakota.
“With the camping season ap-
proaching, visitors to South
Dakota are looking for opportuni-
ties to enjoy our beautiful Black
Hills,” added the Governor. “I hope
the Park Service will partner with
us to find a way to keep this camp-
ground open.”

ing opportunities in South
Dakota, visit www.campsd.com.

I-90 Eastbound reconstruction
work to begin April 1 by Wall
On Monday, April 1, an 11-mile
reconstruction project will begin
on the eastbound lanes of Inter-
state 90 east of Wall, according to
the South Dakota Department of
Transportation.
The $15.7 million dollar project
involves removing and replacing
the concrete pavement, grading,
installing edge drains and new as-
phalt shoulders on the eastbound
lanes of I-90.
Traffic will be reduced to one-
lane in each direction and placed
head-to-head in the westbound
lanes with a 16-foot width restric-
tion.
Motorists are asked to watch for
slowing traffic, merging lanes, con-
struction equipment and workers.
The speed limit on that section
of I-90 near Wall will be reduced to
65 mph, and motorists are re-
minded that fines are doubled in
work zones.
The Exit 112 eastbound on-ramp
will be closed during construction.
Eastbound traffic will be detoured
to Exit 110.
All of the work is scheduled to be
completed by November 22. Stan-
ley J. Johnsen Concrete of Rapid
City is the contractor.
For more information, contact
Auston Harris with the South
Dakota Department of Transporta-
tion at 605-394-2247.

formation can be found at

Anglers targeting walleye on one
of South Dakota’s most popular
walleye fisheries will be met with
new walleye regulations in 2013.
In response to a large number of
smaller walleyes produced during
the last few years and low food
availability stemming from the
2011 flood, anglers are now al-
lowed a daily limit of eight wall-
eye.
No more than four may be 15
inches in length or longer and the
daily limit may include no more
than one 20 inches or longer. The
possession limit for Lake Oahe is
24 per angler.

other water during the same day,

“Agriculture is South Dakota’s
by Libbi Sykora
Sometimes when you read a
book that is unappealing to you,
you find yourself only reading the
words, not comprehending them.
Active reading is something that
will aid you throughout your life.
After all, what’s the point of read-
ing anything if you can’t absorb or
comprehend it?
Tips for active reading:
1. Mark or highlight in the
book.
Highlight important words or
phrases. This will make them eas-
ier to find in your book, and it will
help you remember important de-
tails.
PLEASE do NOT write or high-
light in a library book. Something
you can do instead is flag impor-
tant details with small sticky
notes. If you use this strategy,
please remove all of the sticky
notes upon returning the book to
the library. (Thank you in ad-
vance!)
2. Ask questions/clarify.
Take time when you read to ask
questions. Use the internet to re-
search when the book was written,
who wrote it, and why it was writ-
ten. Use every resource possible to
clarify and answer your questions.
By asking questions, you can get
a better understanding of the liter-
ary work.
3. React and connect.
Listen to your thoughts and feel-
ings as you read. Try to put your-
self in the character’s shoes in
order to think about how you
would react if you were in that po-
sition. Make connections to your
own life. Can you relate to any-
thing that has happened in the
novel?
4. Visualize.
When you are reading, try to
imagine everything in as great de-
tail as possible. Using sensory de-
tails to put yourself in the setting
of the story.
5. Predict.
Many authors use clues
throughout the novel to highlight
themes and hint at what might
happen next. Whenever you come
across something that might be
important, flag it with a sticky
note or highlight it. Make predic-
tions about the plot. When you
have finished reading, look back
and see how close you came with
your predictions.
These tips are extremely useful
when reading a book for a class or
a book discussion group. It will
make discussion and comprehen-
sion so much easier for you.
Wednesday, March 27 at 6:00
p.m., there will be a book discus-
sion about The Perks of Being a
Wallflower by Stephen Chbosky at
the Wall Community Library.
Even if you haven’t read the
book, stop in and take part in the
discussion anyway.
If you have seen the video adap-
tation of this novel, read The Out-
siders by S. E. Hinton, and/or read
The Catcher in the Rye by J. D.
Salinger, you will have plenty of
Wall Community Library/Active reading strategies

mllllon ln 2012 cash-back dlvldends
- Funds Beneflt Local 0ommunltles -
Rapid City, SD (March 18, 2013) – Farm Credit Services of America (FC-
SAmerica) announced today that customer-owners in western South Dakota
and Crook and Weston counties in Wyoming served by the cooperative’s
Rapid City Marketplace are receiving checks totaling $2.75 million this
month, and cumulative in nine years $16,553,000 million. ese checks rep-
resent the areas’ share of a total $130 million cash-back dividends distributed
by FCSAmerica for 2012.
“History suggests customers will spend a signicant percentage of their
cash-back dividends in the communities they call home in addition to using
the funds to support their operations,” said Doug eel, Vice President. e
Rapid City local oce works with customers in Harding, Perkins, Butte,
Meade, Haakon, Lawrence, Pennington, Custer, Shannon, Fall River, Jackson,
Bennett and Crook and Weston counties in Wyoming.
Because of the cooperative’s consistency through agriculture’s good times
and challenging times, we are able to make this signicant distribution, eel
said. FCSAmerica’s nancial strength and staying power enabled the coop-
erative’s Board of Directors to return one of the largest cash-back dividends
in its history to customer-owners, while continuing to oer attractive interest
rates and building capital for future generations.
e $130 million cash-back dividend for 2012 is the ninth in FCSAmer-
ica’s history and brings the total cash distributions since 2004 to nearly $700
million. During this same nine year period, FCSAmerica’s capital (members’
equity) has grown from $1.5 billion to $3.2 billion and net income has grown
from $294 million to $481 million.
FCSAmerica has adopted a patronage program every year since 2004.
Each eligible customer’s cash-back dividend is based on the average loan vol-
ume during the calendar year. e more loan business a customer has with
the cooperative, the more they benet nancially through cash-back divi-
dends.
e FCSAmerica Board also approved a patronage program for 2013,
with the total cash-back dividend to be decided by the Board in December
2013.

Elm Springs News
Submitted by Shelia Trask
The community of Elm
Springs has been busy staying
home calving and working on
their tax valuations! There were
several township meetings at-
tended by the community the
last two weeks.
Sounds like there is a business
"Roamin’ Rod the Calving Assis-
tant" in the community. Mr. An-
ders has been roaming around
helping people in need anytime
day or night!
Lawrence Burke has been on a
free lunch program this week.
He went to town on Tuesday and
had lunch at Jenner Equipment.
Friday, Clyde Arneson was a cof-
fee visitor then Lawrence and
Clyde went up to Union Center
for another free lunch at the
coop.
Laken Linn spent last Tuesday
with Peggy Gravatt. I bet there
was some spoiling done there.
Friday was shearing day at the
Jim and Myrna Smith ranch.
Help included some of the follow-
ing but not necessarily all: Philip
and Kenneth Wilson, Jim Wilsey,
David Scott, Margaret Nachti-
gall, Andy and Ben Linn, Tucky
Tifft, Mark Trask, Darlene Wulf
and bandidos.
Kelli Wilson, Tomilyn Trask
and Gemma Trask were home
for the weekend to their respec-
tive families from their studies
at Chadron State College.
Tyler Wilson, Tracy and Way-
lon arrived on Saturday from
Newcastle to visit at Kenneth
and Janet’s. They started to
come Friday and ran into bad
roads so turned around and
came the next morning.
Tom and Mick Trask drove to
Sioux Falls on Friday and picked
up Levi for a visit with the
Trasks. He takes his cow feeding
very serious but they did talk
him into going with them moun-
tain lion hunting in the hills on
Sunday and Monday.
Taylor Burgee spent the week-
end with Jonnie Jo Anders. Jon-
nie and Taken have a few ewes
lambing.
The Elm Springs 8th graders
went to Wall High School for vis-
itation on Monday.
Shirrise and Laken Linn went
to Rapid City on Wednesday and
met up with Tiff Knuppe and ran
errands before returning by Peg
Ireland for a stamp meeting.
Sympathy goes to Jerry Maas,
who lost his daughter this week.
Services will be in Chicago next
weekend.
Thursday, the Linns helped
Jean celebrate her birthday.
Saturday night, Clyde Arneson
and Pat Trask were at Morris
and Shirrise Linn’s for supper.
Ryan and Chrissy, Rylan and
Camri came later for the happy
hour.
Pat and Rose Mary Trask and
family attended mass on Sunday
evening in Rapid City and then
went out for supper.
A few inches of snow were wel-
comed this week as anything
that brings moisture to the area
is invited! The cold weather that
accompanied it caused for most
to stay close to home and tend to
business calving!

Nancy Jordan of Douglas, Wyo.,
came on Monday to Quinn to visit
her dad, George and Lorna Moore.
Lyle and Viola Williams had
their 66th wedding anniversary on
Friday, the 22nd. They were on
their way to Rapid City to cele-
brate when the weather turned
nasty. Bad enough that they de-
cided to turn around at the Air
Base exit and come back. They
went on to Quinn and had supper
there. Congratulations to them —
that is a lot of years.
Glad to report that the Wall
Drug is now back to normal after
their flood. Burgers are again on
the menu.
Senior Citizens (YAH) meet at
Prairie Village on April 1st at 1:00
p.m.
Last week we had a lot of wind,
making the cooler temps feel even
colder. Had quite a few snow
squalls on Sunday, some cutting
down visibility considerably. We
should get back to average temper-
atures this week.
Have a Happy Easter!

Esther Long, age 89, of Het-
tinger, N.D., formerly of Philip,
S.D., died Sunday, March 24, 2013,
at the Western Horizon Care Cen-
ter in Hettinger, N.D.
Esther Pauline Clawson was
born March 6, 1924, in Sheridan,
Wyo., the daughter of Cecil Ransom
and Sarah Ethel (Shaw) Clawson.
She grew up on her parents’
homestead near Arvada, Wyo.,
graduated from Gillette High
School and the Gillette Normal
School (for a teaching certificate) in
1942 and then furthered her edu-
cation in teaching at Black Hills
State College in Spearfish.
Esther taught at rural schools in
Sheridan and Campbell counties in
Wyoming and while at the Powder
River School in Campbell County
met Leroy D. Long, who was visit-
ing relatives in the area. They mar-
ried on December 22, 1945, at
Hardin, Mont., which was 15 days
after Leroy’s discharge from the
U.S. Army. (When Esther decided
to do something, there was no wait-
ing around.)
They initially made their home
in Campbell County where Esther
was teaching school, but in June
1946, they moved to Philip, where
they built a home and established
a permanent residence.
In addition to raising six chil-
dren, Esther worked a variety of
jobs to help support the family as a
housekeeper, waitress and day care
provider. For her last two years
prior to retirement, she worked as
a kitchen assistant in the Philip
hospital and nursing home.
In 1997, Esther and Leroy
moved into the Senechal Apart-
ments. After the passing of her
husband, Leroy, in January 2000,
Esther lived mostly with her
daughter, Cheryl, and her hus-
band, Phil, in Philip in the warmer
months of the year and with her
son, Wayne, and his wife, Kathy,
during winter months at Hastings,
Nebraska. In July 2012, she went
to Hettinger where son, Jim, and
his wife, Jenifer, live and was ad-
mitted to the Western Horizons
Care Center where she resided
until being called to heaven.
She was a member of the Evan-
gelical Free Church of Philip and
was appreciative of the cards, notes
and prayers from her prayer group
while she was residing in the care
center.
She is survived by three sons,
Wayne (Kathy) of Hastings, Neb.,
Jim (Jenifer) of Hettinger, N.D.,
and Mike of Sioux Falls; two
daughters, Palma Johannesen of
Wall and Cheryl (Phil) Pearson of
Philip; 12 grandchildren; several
great-grandchildren; and a host of
other relatives and friends.
Esther was preceded in death by
her parents, Ethel and Cecil Claw-
son; her husband, Leroy; her
brother, Joseph Clawson; her sis-
ter, Ruth Watt; and her eldest son,
Fred.
Funeral services will be held at
10:00 a.m. Thursday, March 28, at
the Evangelical Free Church in
Philip, with Pastor Gary Wahl offi-
ciating.
Interment will be held 2:00 p.m.
Thursday, March 28, at the Black
Hills National Cemetery near Stur-
gis.
Arrangements are with the
Rush Funeral Home of Philip.
Her online guestbook is avail-
able at www.rushfuneralhome.com

Posted By Pastor Ricky Kurth
In Daniel 9:25, the prophet Daniel was told that from the
going forth of the commandment to restore Jerusalem “unto
the Messiah” would be 69 weeks of years (cf. Gen. 29:27; Lev.
25:8). Frankly, this very specific prophecy baffled Bible stu-
dents for many years, for the predicted time of 483 years
(69×7) “unto the Messiah” did not match up with the time of
the Lord Jesus Christ.
Then, in his book The Coming Prince, a Bible teacher
named Sir Robert Anderson realized the problem lay in the
different ways Jews and Gentiles mark time. We number our
years using a solar calendar wherein each year has 365¼
days, but the Jews used a 360-day lunar calendar, with each
year consisting of 12 months of 30 days each.
Evidence of this is found in Genesis 7:11, where we read
that the deluge began “in the second month, the seventeenth
day of the month,” yet exactly “an hundred and fifty days” later
(v. 24), “the ark rested in the seventh month, on the seven-
teenth day of the month” (8:3,4). The only way an exact period
of five equal months can end 150 days later on the same day
of the month is if each of those months has 30 days. Further
evidence of this is seen when we remember that the last half
of Daniel’s seventieth week is sometimes said to last “forty
and two months” (Rev. 11:2), and sometimes it is said to last
“a thousand two hundred and threescore days” (v. 3). The only
way 42 equal months can work out to 1260 days is if each of
those months has 30 days.
Once Sir Robert recalculated the prophecy using lunar
years, he found that the 69 weeks “unto the Messiah” worked
out to the very day the Lord Jesus rode the colt into Jerusalem
and made an official presentation of Himself to Israel. No won-
der the Lord lamented later that day, “If thou hadst known,
even thou, at least in this thy day, the things which belong unto
thy peace!” (Luke 19:42).
The point? When you are asked why men should trust the
God of the Bible, why not give the reason God Himself gives—
fulfilled prophecy! (Isa. 42:8,9; 44:7,8 cf. John 13:19). To those
who would tout the gods of the world’s other religions, God
says, “Produce your cause…bring forth your strong reasons…
let them bring them forth, and shew us what shall happen…
shew the things that are to come hereafter, that we may know
that ye are gods” (Isa. 41:21-24).
The God of the Bible alone is God!

at his residence.
Lyle Eugene Klundt was born

Donald Kelly, 63-06-476-003; Kelly Sub
#2, Lot 5.
Kelly was requesting all five of the prop-
erties to be zoned back as Ag since all he
was doing with it was haying it and to
lower the valuation to $250. The local
board of Equalization explained that re-
zoning cannot be addressed at these
meeting and the land valuation was
$2,800 in 2012, therefore the valuation
will not be lowered more than that. Motion
by Dunker, second by M Anderson to
lower all five parcels back to a valuation
of $2,800. Motion carried.
Paul Hinzman, 8000875, Hustead’s Mo-
bile Home Court, Lot R4L7. Hinzman ex-
plained he owns a 1999 16 X 80 mobile
home in Box Elder which was assessed
at $31,400. He was able to get the
County review it and it was lowered to
$22,00. In comparing his 1996 16 X 80
mobile home in Wall that is assessed at
$24,100, since it is 3 years older it should
be lowered to $14,800. The board felt mo-
bile homes that are located in the same
community could not be compared with
this reasoning. Motion by M Anderson,
second by Morgan to lower the valuation
of the structure to $20,000. Motion car-
ried.
Steve & Gayle Eisenbraun, 63-05-102-
008; Hustead’s 3rd Addition, Block 2, Lot
2. This property was assessed at a higher
square footage than it actually is. Prop-
erty owner asked the county to review
and adjust it accordingly. Motion by An-
derson, second by Dunker accept the
square footage adjustment and the
county’s recommendation of the land as-
sessment at $12,000 and the structure at
$113,100 for a total valuation of
$125,100. Motion carried.
Kelsey Huether, M8006141, Hustead’s
Mobile Home Court, Space R6L2. This
structure recently caught fire and was
burned beyond repair. It has been re-
moved from the location and take to a
rubble site. Motion by Dunker, second by
Morgan to remove it from the tax role.
Motion carried.
With no further business, the meeting ad-
journed at 6:30pm.

The Wall City Council met for a special
meeting March 15th at 8:00am in the

gan, Councilman; Pete Dunker, Council-
man; Bill Leonard, Councilman; Mike An-
derson, Councilman

Works Employee
Absent: Stan Anderson, Councilman
(All action taken in the following minutes
carried by unanimous vote unless other-
wise stated.)
Mayor Hahn called the meeting to order
at 8:00am.
Motion by Leonard, second by Dunker to
approve the agenda. Motion carried.
Motion by Dunker, second by Hustead to
go into executive session for the purpose
of discussing personnel issues according
to SDCL 1-25-2 at 8:02am. Motion car-
ried.
Councilman Mike Anderson entered the

executive session at 8:16am and directed
Finance Officer (FO) Anderson the call
Jeff Clark and Jim Kitterman to join the
meeting. Clark and Kitterman joined the
meeting at 8:20am.
Mayor Hahn explained the council has
determined it is necessary to downsize
the Public Works (PW) department to just
two (2) employees. The Public Works de-
partment will still be able to continue to
provide adequate service and the savings
in the payroll will allow the City to provide
other city services that are essential.
There may be a possibility of hiring sea-
sonal help if needed. Motion by Hustead,
second by Dunker to move Garrett Bryan
into the position of Public Works Director;
effective March 18, 2013 with a five thou-
sand dollar ($5,000) annual pay increase
for a six month probation period. With a
positive evaluation at the end of the pro-
bation period, October 1st another annual
pay increase of three thousand dollars
($3,000) will be given. Bryan will be al-
lowed to accrue a maximum of eight (8)
hours per month of compensatory time
during the probation period. At the end of
the probation period and with only two
(PW) employees compensatory time will
be given to both for hours worked as al-
lowed by state statue. Effective March
18th, Jeff Clark will take four thousand
dollar ($4,000) annual pay cut until Octo-
ber 1st when the downsizing of the de-
partment will become effective; therefore
his employment will be terminated. Mo-
tion carried.
With no other business to address the

WALL LOCAL
BOARD OF
EQUALiZATiON
MARCH 18, 2013
The local Board of Equalization met on
Monday, March 18, 2013 at 5:00 pm at
the Wall Community Center meeting
room.
Members present: Mayor Dave Hahn,
Councilman Pete Dunker, Councilman
Jerry Morgan, Councilman Bill Leonard,
Councilman Mike Anderson, Finance Of-
ficer Carolynn Anderson (also represent-
ing Wall School District) and Laurie Hind-
man, Pennington County Courant.
Norma Carson, M8005404; Lot G, 1S-
16E Sec 05, Unplatted; Bal of
W1/2NW1/4 Less Row. This property
was purchased by Norma in 2009 for
$4,500. It is located in a portion of the
trailer park that has drainage issues.
Therefore there are issues with the level-
ing of the structure. Typically mobile
homes decrease in value not increase.
The valuation increased by 42% this past
year which is unrealistic. Motion by
Dunker, second by M Anderson to lower
the structure valuation to $5,000. Motion
carried.
Bill Zebroski, 63-08-102-001; Shearer Ad-
dition #1, Block 5, Lot A of Lot 2. The land
was purchased in 2010 and the structure
was not placed on it until the end of 2010.
The 2012 valuation was at $154,100 and
there have been no improvements to war-
ranty a 4% increase in 2013. Motion by
Morgan, second by Leonard to leave the
land valuation at $20,000 and lower the
structure back to $134,100 for a total of
$154,100. Motion carried.
Bart Cheney, 63-08-101-013; Shearer Ad-
dition #1, Block 5, Lot 2 less Lots A & B.
The valuation in 2012 was $177,000 and
the only improvement was the completion
of the basement for $25,000. The
$95,000 increase is unrealistic and Ch-
eney requested it to be lowered to
$202,000. Motion by Morgan, second by
M Anderson to keep the land valuation at
$33,200 and lower the structure valuation
to $168,800 for a total valuation of
$202,000. Motion carried.
Brenda Carmichael, 63-08-152-001; An-
derson Addition, Lot 1. Carmichael refi-
nanced her property in 2012 and the ap-
praisal came back at $230,000. There-
fore, the 2012 valuation was too high and
the increase for 2013 is unrealistic. Mo-
tion by Dunker, second by Leonard to
keep the land valuation at $18,000 and to
lower the structure valuation to $212,000
for a total valuation of $230,000. Motion
carried.
Alvin Crown, 63-07-277-001; Crown
Country Estates, Lot 4. The paperwork
that Crown received on what his evalua-
tion of this property and the valuation that
was listed in the paperwork that is sent to
the City did not coincide. Crown’s paper-
work gave the land valuation at $1,190
and the structure valuation at $133,812.
The City paperwork shows a land valua-
tion of $1,800 and a structure valuation of
$133,812. Motion by M Anderson, second
by Morgan to keep the land value at
$1,190 and the structure valuation at
$133,812 as stated on Crown’s paper-
work received by the county. Motion car-
ried.
Merlin Crown, 63-07-226-003; Crown
Country Estates, Lot 3. This property was
recently annexed into the city limits and
was not addressing the valuation of the
property but rather the levy of the City’s
taxes. This issue will be addressed in a
different procedure.
Gale Crown, 63-07-226-001; Crown
Country Estates, Lot 1. Again this prop-
erty was annexed into the city recently
and was addressing the City’s tax levy
rather than the property valuation. This
issue will be addressed in a different pro-
cedure.
Donna Fauske, 63-07-227-003; Crown
Country Estates, Lot 2. This property was
given a 5% increase in the structure val-
uation. There have been no improve-
ments but yet it is given a high increase
each year. Motion by Dunker, second by
M. Anderson to leave the land at $16,000
and to lower the structure valuation back
to $243,900. Motion carried.
Kent Jordan, 63-05-153-005; Hustead’s
3rd Addition, Block 2, Lot 5. This property
was purchased in 2012 for $120,000,
which included land and structure. There-
fore, the valuation should be lowered to
reflect the purchase price. Motion by M
Anderson, second by Leonard to keep the
land valuation at $12,000 and lower the
structure valuation to $108,000. Motion
carried.
Donald Kelly, 63-06-454-001; Kelly Sub
#5, Block 1, Lot 1.
Donald Kelly, 63-06-454-002; Kelly Sub

RETIREMENT, SuCCESSION
PLANS: "MuST HAVES" FOR
BuSINESS OWNERS
Richard Wahlstrom
www.edwardjones.com
If you own a business, you may
well follow a “do it now” philosophy
— which is, of course, necessary to
keep things running smoothly.
Still, you also need to think about
tomorrow — which means you’ll
want to take action on your own
retirement and business succes-
sion plans.
Fortunately, you’ve got some at-
tractive options in these areas. For
example, you could choose a retire-
ment plan that offers at least two
key advantages: potential tax-de-
ferred earnings and a wide array
of investment options. Plus, some
retirement plans allow you to
make tax-deductible contributions.
In selecting a retirement plan,
you’ll need to consider several fac-
tors, including the size of your
business and the number of em-
ployees. If your business has no
full-time employees other than
yourself and your spouse, you may
consider a Simplified Employee
Pension (SEP) plan or an owner-
only 401(k), sometimes known as
an individual or solo 401(k). Or, if
your goal is to contribute as much
as possible, you may want to con-
sider an owner-only defined bene-
fit plan.
If you have employees, you
might want to investigate a SIM-
PLE IRA or even a 401(k) plan.
Your financial advisor, working
with plan design professionals and
your tax advisor, can help you an-
alyze the options and choose the
plan that fits with your combined
personal and business goals.
Now, let’s turn to business suc-
cession plans. Ultimately, your
choice of a succession plan strategy
will depend on many factors, such
as the value of your business, your
need for the proceeds from the sale
of the business for your retire-
ment, your successor, and how well
your business can continue with-
out you. If your goal is to keep the
business within the family, you’ll
need to consider how much control
you wish to retain (and for how
long), whether you wish to gift or
sell, how you balance your estate
among your heirs, and who can
reasonably succeed you in running
the business.
Many succession planning tech-
niques are available, including an
outright sale to a third party, a
sale to your employees or manage-
ment (at once or over time), or the
transfer of your business within
your family through sales or gifts
during your life, at your death or
any combination thereof.
Many succession plans include a
buy-sell agreement. Upon your
death, such an agreement could
allow a business partner or a key
employee to buy the business from
your surviving spouse or whoever
inherits your business interests.
To provide the funds needed for
the partner or employee (or even
one of your children) to purchase
the business, an insurance policy
could be purchased.
Your estate plan — including
your will and any living trust —
should address what happens with
the business, in case you still own
part or all of it at your death. The
best-laid succession plans may go
awry if the unexpected occurs.
All these business succession op-
tions can be complex, so before
choosing any of them, you will
need to consult with your legal and
financial advisors.
Whether it’s selecting a retire-
ment plan or a succession strategy,
you’ll want to take your time and
make the choices that are appro-
priate for your individual situa-
tion.
You work extremely hard to run
your business — so do whatever it
takes to help maximize your bene-
fits from it.
