1. Please tell us about your-
I am Gale Patterson, youngest
son of Merritt and Evelyn Patter-
I was raised on a farm and
ranch Northwest of Wall.
I graduated from Wall High
School, Black Hills State Univer-
sity and South Dakota State Uni-
I am married to Karol and we
have one son, Seth. I have spent
most of my career in education.
I have been a teacher, coach, AD
and Secondary School Principal. I
am now retired. I moved into Wall
in 1975 and have resided here
since that time.
2. Why did you choose to run
for city council?
I see it as a chance to serve the
people of a town that I care deeply
for. If elected, I will learn how city
government works and be able to
use my many years as a school ad-
ministrator to help make decisions
that will effect the people of this
3. What are your primary ob-
jectives if you are elected?
First I will need to learn and un-
derstand the laws rules, regula-
tions and polices that we must
abide by. To serve the people not
only in my ward, but all citizens of
I will use a conservative and
moral background in my decision
making process. I am not running
on any certain agenda. There will
be a learning curve I will go
through as I have never been a city
councilman before.
However, during my years as a
Secondary School Principal I
worked with many different school
boards and I believe that experi-
ence will benefit me as a city coun-
4. In your opinion, what are
the three top issues facing Wall
in the next five years?
A. Maintaining the independ-
ence of the Wall Health Clinic so as
not to become part of the Rapid
City Regional Health Services. I be-
lieve it is essential to maintain
local control of our clinic. We need
to work on ways to keep the clinic
financially sound.
B. Bringing in some kind of in-
dustry to the City of Wall. I know
several years ago a group of indi-
viduals met to do just that. At that
time they where unsuccessful, but I
think it is imperative that we con-
tinue to look for opportunities to do
C. To improve the financial sta-
bility of the city and to prioritize
where the money is being spent.
5. Do you feel that the cur-
rent council meets the needs of
the community? Why or why
I believe they do. Each council-
man has the best interest of this
town in their hearts.
There will always be room for
improvement and challenges to
meet, but we are blessed to live in
such a wonderful town.
We have a very well kept town,
and the council does it's best to
meet the needs of it's citizens.
6. What do you feel is good
about the present council?
I believe I have answered that in
the above question.
7. What do you feel is in need
of change, if any?
It would not be ethical of me to
suggest needed change. It is easy to
sit on the sidelines and talk about
what is wrong or what needs to
happen, but without having set in
their seats it would just be suppo-
sition on my part.
It is essential to deal with facts
in any situation.
I look forward [if elected] to the
challenges we now face and those
in the future.
8. Describe the city's current
budget scenario. What are
your concerns? What are you
I believe the council has done
well with the finances they have
available to work with.
We are fortunate we have not
been [as effected] by the financial
down turn as other communities
have, but we still have our prob-
We need to continue to find ways
to increase revenues without rais-
ing taxes in order to meet the needs
of our citizens.
Again, one of my major concerns
is the financial stability of the Wall
Health Clinic.
9. What do you think is the
most viable source of future
revenue for the City?
Bringing in new business and
industry, if at all possible, to the
City. That would raise the rev-
enue the City has to work with,
being better able to grow our town.
I know this will be hard work, but
it will be well worth it if we can be
successful in this endeavor.
10. Any other comments.
We are a small town and we need
to work collectively together to in-
sure the future of Wall.
There will always be disagree-
ments on how we should proceed,
but I believe we can work through
those differences and continue to

quality of our response to the needs
of the citizens of Wall.

teamwork and solid leadership.

cisions to best utilize the tax payers
dollars and that we do not over
spend the budget.
9. What do you think is the
most viable source of future
revenue for the City?
The most viable source of rev-
enue for the city is our sales tax
With a fresh outlook and new
ideas we will be able to grow our
local economy and increase our
revenue source.
10. Any other comments.
I hope I am given the opportunity
to serve the citizens of Wall.
I am lucky to live in a commu-
nity that has so much to offer. It’s a
wonderful place to live and raise a
I would really enjoy helping the
community grow and prosper.

Denny Law, general manager of
Golden West Telecommunications
Cooperative (Wall, S.D.), under-
stands how delivering communica-
tions services to nearly one-third of
South Dakota’s land mass can be
directly impacted by the decisions
of regulators and policy makers in
Pierre and Washington, DC.
His leadership and insight on
these issues along with his dedica-
tion to the telecommunications in-
dustry earned him special recogni-
tion during the Legislative and
Policy Conference hosted by
NTCA–The Rural Broadband As-
sociation in Washington, D.C.
NTCA Chief Executive Officer
Shirley Bloomfield and Director of
Government Affairs Leif Oveson
presented Law with the Support-
ing Policy Initiatives for Rural In-
dependent Telecommunications
(SPIRIT) Award on April 22.
The award recognizes Law’s ef-
forts to educate congressional staff
about call completion issues when
he served as a panelist in a 2012
Capitol Hill briefing.
Law also spent a significant
amount of time reaching out to
other NTCA members around the
country to help build support for a
related letter to the FCC signed by
more than 30 members of the
United States Senate.
“Denny has been instrumental
in building relationships with his
state’s congressional delegation,
some of whom have gone on to be-
come leading advocates of key

South Dakota Telecommunica-

thoughts. “Denny has a unique

The American Legion, Depart-
ment of South Dakota State Head-
quarters in Watertown reported
that the 71st Annual Session of
The American Legion Boys State of
South Dakota convened on the
campus of Northern State Univer-
sity on Monday, May 27.
The American Legion geared up
to welcome up to 360 young men,
all between their junior and senior
years in high school, from all
across South Dakota for this year’s
session. Tyler Peterson and Les
Williams attended from Wall.
Ty Wiley, of Sioux Falls, (a sen-
ior this year at Washington High
School) who was elected Governor
at the 70h Annual Session, served
as the leader of this year’s session
until the new governor was elected
on Thursday, May 30th.
This year’s session ended on Fri-
day, May 31st.
The five-day session, part of The
American Legion’s Americanism
Program, is one of the most re-
spected and selective educational
programs of government instruc-
tion for high school students in the
nation. South Dakota American
Legion Boys State started in Ab-
erdeen in 1940 and continued
through 1942. World War II made
it necessary to drop the activity
from 1943-1945, but in 1946 South
Dakota American Legion Boys
State was resumed.
American Legion Boys State is
a participatory program where
each boy becomes a part of the op-
S.D. American Legion Boys State
eration of his local, county and
state government.
The South Dakota American Le-
gion Boys State boys were exposed
to the rights and privileges, the
duties and responsibilities of a cit-
izen. The training is objective and
practical with city, county and
state government operated by
elected and appointed officials
duly placed in office by the partic-
ipants. Activities included leg-
islative sessions, court proceed-
ings, law enforcement presenta-
tions, assemblies, bands, chorus
and recreational programs. An-
other unique aspect of American
Legion Boys State is Journalism
Journalism City offers an op-
portunity for additional young
men to participate in the Boys
State program, but from a differ-
ent perspective.
The participants in Journalism
City are responsible for covering
the events of the session, reporting
and recording the proceedings, and
publishing a daily newspaper, The
Sunshine Scribe, each day during
the session. Journalism City is di-
rected by Pat Leary of Volga,
South Dakota.
Participants for American Le-
gion Boys State are normally se-
lected by local American Legion
Posts following recommendations
by school officials.
In most cases, the expenses as-
sociated with attendance are paid
by a sponsoring American Legion
Post, a local business or another
community-based organization.
Approximately 60 volunteer
staff members consisting of Le-
gionnaires and educators, along
with civic and government leaders
participated as counselors and ad-
visors during the week-long pro-
John Slunecks of Sioux Falls
and Mitchell Keena of Sioux Falls,
who were selected at last year’s
session to attend American Legion
Boys Nation in Washington, D.C.,
also participated in this year’s ses-
sion as junior counselors.

USDA Farm Service Agency
(FSA) State Executive Director
Craig Schaunaman encourages
farmers and ranchers to enroll in
the 2013 Direct and Counter-Cycli-
cal Payment Program (DCP) or the
Average Crop Revenue Election
Program (ACRE) before the June
3, 2013 deadline.
“We understand that producers
are busy planting this spring, but
they can’t forget to visit their
county office and sign up for DCP
or ACRE,” said Schaunaman.
“Just as farmers and ranchers
plan their spring plantings, pro-
ducers should plan to schedule an
appointment to visit their USDA
Service Center at the earliest pos-
sible time. It’s best to set up an ap-
pointment now rather than wait
until the day before the deadline,”
USDA urges producers
to enroll in DCP/ACRE
advised Schaunaman.
The sign-up for both programs
began February 19, 2013. The
deadline to sign up for ACRE is
June 3, 2013. The DCP sign up pe-
riod ends August 2, 2013.
The 2013 DCP and ACRE pro-
gram provisions are unchanged
from 2012, except that all eligible
participants in 2013 may choose to
enroll in either DCP or ACRE for
the 2013 crop year. This means
that eligible producers who were
enrolled in ACRE in 2012 may
elect to enroll in DCP in 2013, or
may re-enroll in ACRE in 2013
(and vice versa).

programs and loans administered

Commoditization of the United
States cattle industry
I recently read a report by one of
our cattle market analysts, who
tried to identify what issues and/or
policies had damaged the cattle in-
dustry the most. Great question ...
with an exploding population that
needs to feed itself, one would cer-
tainly wonder why the United
States cattle industry is contract-
The analyst identified two such
issues, but he also exposed the ex-
tremes that such folks as himself,
certain industry groups, and some
of our more social media will go to
distort the facts and create smoke
screens to accomplish their social-
istic agenda. The article states
that “mandatory country of origin
labeling (COOL) for fresh meat
products” has “added billions of
dollars of costs to the livestock and
meat industry.” WOW – billions!
Somebody needs to tell him that
COOL has only been in effect since
2009 and that even the packers
and retailers couldn't come up
with a figure that ridiculous.
Then he goes on to say that the
blame for COOL lies squarely with
a “tiny minority of livestock pro-
These are the same tactics used
by our monthly Beef Enquirer-like
publications that we get for free to
create public record to try and
show a lack of producer support.
The problem is that – when you
look at all the local and state Farm
Bureau, Farmers Union and cat-
tlemen's groups – you will find
overwhelming producer support
for mandatory COOL.
He then goes to say, “Surveys
showed consumers didn't care
about labeling.” WOW, I believe
what we have seen reported is just
the opposite with multiple surveys
showing consumer support for
And then he finishes up by say-
ing that USDA (United States De-
partment of Agriculture) “changes
will only increase discrimination
against foreign born livestock.”
Not sure what changes he’s talking
about, but the ones submitted by
USDA to come into WTO (World
Trade Organization) compliance
are designed to reduce the discrim-
ination practice yielded by U.S.
packers in an effort to kill COOL.
I still think what the packers did
bordered on anti-competitive and
discriminatory practices ... a heck
of a thing to witness in this coun-
I point this out on COOL not be-
cause I believe anyone really buys
into these distortions, as we all un-
derstand the extremes these folks
will go to and certainly they have
lost their credibility with the aver-
age U.S. cattle producers. Rather,
I point this out because these are
the same people and groups that
told you in the late ’80s and the
’90s that you need to learn to com-
pete in a global market; however,
they oppose you identifying your
product. They also told you that
your competition was poultry and
pork and not imports.
That’s interesting, because it
was recently announced that the
National Pork Producers Council
and the Cattlemen's Beef Board
have been working in partnership
for nearly two years to provide
more “consumer-friendly” names
for 350 new and older cuts of beef
and pork under URMIS (Uniform
Retail Meat Identity Standards)
with some of the pork cuts adapt-
ing beef names. Now while some of
this appears good, other changes
have the potential to reduce and
confuse beef sales. For example, no
longer is it just pork chops; now it
will be ribeye chops, porterhouse
chops, and New York chops. So
when the young housewife walks
up to the meat counter to buy a
“ribeye” for her loved one, she will
be asked by the meat retailer,
“pork or beef?” She may then very
well ask the perceived profes-
sional, “What do you suggest?”
I imagine the response by the re-
tailer will depend on which prod-
uct gives him the most profit,
along with his own biases.
I understand why the pork folks
went for this, but here’s the prob-
lem for U.S. cattle producers.
These meat cut names, while not
trademarked brand names, act
very much like brand names for
the beef/cattle industry. Con-
sumers are familiar with these
terms in beef and relate those
names to such things as flavor,
tenderness and quality. Histori-
cally, consumers have made deci-
sions based on these names, they
have become the brand-like name
of each cut, and you don’t conspire
to let your competitor use your
brand name!
It is well understood that brand
names simplify shopping and aid
in processing of information about
products; however, these types of
changes complicate meat buying
decisions for consumers and com-
promise beef ’s ability to separate
itself in the animal protein market
and promote itself. As the EBAC
noted, “People recognize brand and
attach a certain intrinsic value to
the product because of its name”
like ribeye, New York, porterhouse,
T-bone – those names kind of make
your mouth water, don’t they?
Another marketing expert goes
on to say, “Do NOT underestimate
the power of name brands. This
power can be so compelling to your
buyers that they may be blinded to
all other purchase considerations.”
But not now, not with beef. No
wonder Patrick Fleming of the Na-
tional Pork Board said it will aid
the consumer’s “decision-making
on pork by adapting beef nomen-
clature for pork.” In other words,
they will sell more pork ... at beef ’s
So, as we look to answer the
question of what issues and/or
policies have done the most dam-
age to U.S. cattle herd, I would
have to say the destructionist
trade policies of some of our indus-
try groups and our social media,
who have had no problem sacrific-
ing U.S. producers for trade liber-
alization, as well as the social com-
moditization and standardization
of our industry and the fading
product identity in the animal pro-
tein domestic and global market;
instead of concentrating on differ-
entiating between our products,
we are blurring the lines.

Elm Springs News
Submitted by Peggy Gravatt
The moisture we have gotten
in the last week has been a bless-
ing and very much needed. It
sounds like we will be getting
more to keep things green
around the countryside.
Thursday was a busy day for
Lawrence Burke. He attended
the funeral of his old friend Dean
Allen in Belle Fourche in the
morning. Dean was an old car
collector and through his friend-
ship with Lawrence had pur-
chased a few old cars that were
located in the Elm Springs area.
Lawrence then came back thru
Rapid City for doctor’s appoint-
ments and visited Russell
Burmeister and Karen Delbridge
in the hospital.
Philip and Mary Kay Wilson
went to Rapid City on Sunday.
They picked up Patrick and Lane
Wilson, then went to the Black
Hills National Cemetery. While
there, they ran into Phil’s Aunt
Mary Wilson and his cousins
Nancy Nixon, Gene Wilson and
Doug Wilson. They then took
Patrick out for supper to cele-
brate his birthday.
Charlotte and Laura Wilsey
spent the day with John and
Jean Linn last Saturday, out in
the country.
Baxter Anders took Dunbar
Anders to the airport on Friday
to fly to China, where he will be
touring for two weeks before re-
turning to Anchorage for his
summer job. Sounds like Dunbar
has gotten the traveling bug.
Mel and Dorothy Anderson
met Mel’s sister, Linda Coyle and
friend Michael Martin from Mur-
rietta, Calif., at the Rapid City
Airport on Tuesday. They then
met other cousins in Rapid City
for lunch and a long visit. Linda
and Michael returned home with
Mel and Dorothy and spent the
night at the ranch. On Wednes-
day morning, they headed to the
Hills for some “touristing” for a
couple of days, then returned
back to the ranch on Friday for
the night before heading to the
Eagle Butte/Timber Lake areas.
Visitors on Friday were Darlene
Wulf and grandkids Kingston
and Madylyn, as well as Joan
Sutton and her daughter Shelli
Vallis of Rapid City. Dorothy
paid visits to cemeteries in Rapid
City on Friday also. Mel and
Dorothy attended the Grand
Opening of the Days of ’76 Mu-
seum in Deadwood on Saturday,
where Mel had a book signing.
They had a chuck wagon meal on
the grounds of the museum with
Mel’s Aunt Jenny from Chappell,
Neb., and her daughter, Joann of
Deadwood. On the way to Dead-
wood, they stopped by the Na-
tional Cemetery to pay Memorial
Day respects to the grave of Bud
Deering. On Sunday, they at-
tended an Anderson family get-
together in Eagle Butte.
Shirrise, Kassandra and
Laken Linn left Friday with
cousin Crysta Lemmel and kids,
Cade, Brynn and Logan to at-
tend Uncle Monte and Aunt Ann
Simon’s 50th wedding anniver-
sary in Bennett, Colo. They
stayed the weekend with Frank
and Robyn Behrens in Stras-
burg, Colo. and returned home
on Sunday.
Freddie Ferguson had news
this week, so I did not have to in-
quire about his surprising week.
He attended the annual volun-
teer party for all of the tireless
volunteers at the Good Sam’s in
New Underwood. On Sunday, af-
ternoon he went to cousin Paul
Marr’s daughter, Kay’s gradua-
tion, then attended the post-
graduation party at the Nisland
Independent Community
Church. Freddie also attended
the Elm Springs Memorial Day
program and reported that it
was a very good program with
thanks to all who helped to put it

Elm Springs 8th graders were
honored as well as Mrs. Connie
Mickelson for her 28 years of

The Quinn Community Center
was filled ot capacity (as usual)

Dawna Tsitrian does such a good

The speaker this year was Dave
Olson and he kept everyone’s at-

The young people help “make” the

a soloist or in a group. I didn’t at-

the program some of the same

Anita and Ashlee Peterson and
Kellsie Naescher visited Edith
Paulsen on Saturday. They fin-
ished planting flowers for her in
her big front yard.
Jacob Jedlicka, who goes to
school in Nebraska, came and
spent Friday night with Grandma
Donna. He went on to Rapid City
Saturday to spend the long week-
end with parents David and Kathy.
Marcia Williams came from
Cody, Wyo., and went with her
folks, Leslie and Kay, to Lincoln,
Neb., on Thursday. On Saturday,
they attended Jameson’s high

Lyle and Viola Williams, Loy

WhAt DoeS DoW 15,000
MeAN to YoU?
Richard Wahlstrom
This month, the Dow Jones Indus-
trial Average hit a milestone, when,
for the first time, it closed above
15,000. Of course, 15,000 is a nice,
round number, and it sounds pretty
big — but what does it mean to you,
as an individual investor? Is it cause
for celebration — or is it more of a
“caution” flag?
There’s no one simple answer to
these questions. Since March 2009
— the low point of the market follow-
ing the 2008 financial crisis — the
“Dow” has risen about 130 percent.
And while the Dow is just one index,
it’s nonetheless an important meas-
ure of the market’s performance —
which means that you were likely
glad to see the 15,000 mark eclipsed
and you’d be happy if the numbers
just kept rising.
However, as you’re no doubt
aware, the market does not move in
just one direction. Typically, declines
of 10% or more — or “corrections” —
occur about once a year. Unfortu-
nately, they're not predictable.
Sooner or later, the markets will in-
deed change course, at least for the
short term. When this happens, don’t
panic — corrections are a normal
part of the market cycle. Still, you
might feel like you should do some-
thing to cope with the downturn. But
Here are a few suggestions:
•Keep investing — Too many peo-
ple, when faced with a market drop,
decide to “cut their losses” and take
a “time out” from investing. But that
can be a costly mistake — had these
investors bailed out of the market in
2009, and only recently returned,
they would have missed a substan-
tial part of that 130 percent run-up
in the Dow. And when you invest in
a down market, your dollars may ac-
tually go farther if the market re-
bounds, because you would have
bought more shares at the lower
•Review your portfolio — It’s usu-
ally a good idea to review your port-
folio at least once a year, and it may
be especially important during those
times when the market changes di-
rections. Over time, a portfolio can
become unbalanced — for example,
following a long period of rising
prices, some of your growth-oriented
investments may have gained so
much value that they now take up a
larger percentage of your holdings
than you had intended, possibly sub-
jecting you to a greater level of risk
than you desire. If this happens, you
may need to scale back on these in-
vestments and reallocate the money
•Diversify — Always look for ways
to spread your dollars among a range
of vehicles — stocks, bonds, govern-
ment securities, certificates of de-
posit (CDs) and other investments.
Even within these classes, look for
ways to diversify further, such as
owning different types of stocks,
bonds of varying maturities, and so
on. Diversification can’t guarantee a
profit or protect against a loss, but it
can help reduce the impact of volatil-
ity that can occur in a downturn.
The Dow at 15,000 is certainly no
minor event. And since stocks don't
appear too expensive compared to
their earnings, don't be surprised if
higher milestones follow. But record
highs can be quickly forgotten when
the market falls. By being prepared
for that day, too, you can help your-
self continue to work toward your
goals — even when the major mar-
ket indices have, for the moment,
taken a wrong turn.

Posted By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Most people live in almost constant fear of death. They do not like to think that man’s
days are as grass and all his glory as the glory of a fading flower (Psa. 103:15,16). They
do not wish to face up to the fact that “it is appointed unto men once to die” (Heb. 9:27).
This is natural, for God’s Word declares that death is “the wages of sin” (Rom. 6:23)
and “after this the judgment” (Heb. 9:27) and the “second death” (Rev. 20:14). This is
why I Cor. 15:56 says that “The sting of death is sin.”
Yet the Psalmist David was not afraid of death. He said: “Yea, though I walk through
the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil” — but note the reason: “for Thou art
with me” (Psa. 23:4). David had come to know God and had been graciously delivered
from the fear of death. But we, today, have an even greater reason to be free from the
fear of death, for 1,000 years after David, Saul of Tarsus, the chief of sinners, was saved
by grace and was sent forth to proclaim the “gospel [good news] of the grace of God”
(Acts 20:24).
He went forth to tell men how “Christ died for our sins” (1 Cor. 15:3) and robbed Satan
of all his claims against us:
“That through death He might destroy him that had the power of death, that is,
the devil; and deliver them who through fear of death were all their lifetime subject
to bondage” (Heb. 2: 14, 15).
When the Apostle himself neared death, he said: “To die is gain” (Phil. 1:21), “to depart,
and to be with Christ… is far better” (Ver. 23), and “the time of my departure is at hand…
henceforth there is laid up for me a crown…” (II Tim. 4:6-8).

Students from across South
Dakota will have a chance to show
off their archery skills at the
Fourth Annual National Archery in
the Schools Program (NASP) State
Tournament on Saturday, April 6.
The tournament, sponsored by
South Dakota Department of
Game, Fish and Parks, will begin
at 8 a.m. MDT at the Rushmore
Plaza Civic Center, Barnett Arena,
in Rapid City and will conclude
with a trophy ceremony at 6:30
More than 500 students will
compete for individual and team
honors in three age divisions. The
top three individual and team win-
ners will receive trophies, and each
of the overall individual winners
will also be awarded a free bow,
compliments of GFP. Students who
participate in NASP within their
schools or home-school program
are eligible for the competition.
“It’s gratifying to see so many
schools introduce the sport of
archery into their curriculum,” said
Jason Kool, NASP coordinator for
GFP. “Studies have shown that stu-
dents who participate in NASP like
school better and have excellent
school attendance. NASP is a great
partnership between GFP and local
school districts.”
There is no admission charge,
and the public is invited to the
archery tournament. Volunteers
who want to help with the tourna-
ment may contact outdoorprogram-

Elk moved into Custer State Park
A cooperative project was re-
cently completed to help meet the
elk management goals of Wind
Cave National Park and Custer
State Park.
Game, Fish and Parks (GFP) and
Wind Cave National Park used
contracted helicopters to herd elk
from Wind Cave into Custer State
Elk numbers were well above the
population goal for Wind Cave and
the preferred alternative to reduce
the population was facilitated
movements of elk out of the park.
Elk were moved from Wind Cave to
Custer State Park on two occasions
— 197 elk on March 1 and another
192 elk on March 8.
The majority of these 389 elk
were cows and calves. Twenty-six
of these cow elk are radio-collared,
allowing biologists to track their
“The plan was to move elk north
into CSP and west into Black Hills
elk management Unit 3,” said
Chad Lehman, GFP senior wildlife
biologist. “Jump gates were low-
ered and segments of fence were
opened for elk to leave Wind Cave,
and we were able to facilitate
movement of elk into CSP. Cur-
rently these elk remain in CSP, and
we will continue monitoring their
After these facilitated move-
ments, it is now estimated that
Wind Cave and Custer State Park
each have 500 elk.

In the field of high school sports,
rodeo isn’t the easiest to get a col-
lege scholarship for, but Kylee
Cahoy, daughter of Lorie and Dale
Cahoy and granddaugher of Larry
and Norie Ruland, has it figured
She’s been rodeoing since she
was three years old, and she’s been
on a horse for longer than that.
Now a senior in high school, she
practices four to five hours a night
as a member of the Sheridan High
SHS barrel racer to join NW Oklahama St. rodeo
School team. Thursday, she signed
her national letter of intent to
rodeo at Northwestern Oklahoma
State University, a college in Alva,
Okla., near the state’s northern
border with Kansas.
“I’ve been riding horses since I
was two years old,” Cahoy said. “I
guess it’s kind of a family-based
sport, it helps because the whole
family does it. When I started high
school rodeo, I decided I wanted to
college rodeo because high school
just prepares you for it.”
Out of her three events — break-

tional High School Finals ~Courtesy Photo
away roping, team roping and bar-
rel racing — Cahoy says barrel
racing is her favorite. She just got
a new horse, Romeo, and he
“makes it fun,” she said.
Through five rodeos this season,
she’s the fourth-ranked barrel
racer in Wyoming High School
Rodeo Association state standings,
trailing the first-place rider from
Jackson by 12 points. Her favorite
and best event, she’s had second
and third place barrel racing fin-
ishes three different times this
spring, at rodeos in Rock Springs
and Laramie.
The rodeo team is not affiliated
with the high school and does not
technically have a coach. Parents
and mentors help the kids along
the way.
Every sport has its obstacles
when it comes to reaching the next
level, but for rodeo those chal-
lenges are unique, especially in
“That’s kind of what you’re look-
ing for, that scholarship with high
school rodeo,” Kylee’s mom Lorie
Cahoy said. “Last year at the high
school finals she had a chance to
talk to rodeo coaches from all over
the country.
“It was pretty cool to get to do
that all in one place, it will help a
lot as an individual sport it’s an ex-
pensive event compared to any-
thing else.”
In addition to her parents, Lorie
and Dale, Cahoy’s been helped by
family friend and SHS counselor
Brenda White who takes Cahoy to
rodeos in South Dakota, Gillette
and Billings where there are in-
door arenas out of the Wyoming
“It’s just good to have parents
like these guys to make sure she
has a place to go and animals to
practice on,” White said. “And we
have fun when we’re doing it.
That’s the cool part.”
Right now, they’re into the heart
of the high school season, where
the schedule waits to make sure
that the weather is going to coop-
erate before coming up to the out-
door arenas in the northern part of
the state. The high school team
will compete in Buffalo, May 25
and in Sheridan May 26-27.
The state finals are the weekend
after the Sheridan rodeo, and the
National Finals will be held July,
14-20 in Rock Springs, the same as
last year. Reaching the HSNF is
Cahoy’s goal for her senior season,
and she has qualified in barrel rac-
ing, ranked third in the state.
In the fall, she plans to study bi-
ology and hopes to eventually
enter a radiology program in Okla-
homa. On the rodeo team she’ll be
coached by bulldogger and six-time
NFR qualifier Stockton Graves.
“No snow,” she laughed when
prompted as to why she chose the
school. “Rodeo is bigger there,” she
continued. “There are more places,
chances to go and compete. There’s
no off season for rodeo, we go all
year round.”
Cahoy repeated as all-around
champion in Gillette.
After taking the award in New-
castle May 4-5, she accumulated
642.25 points in her two days of
events in Gillette Saturday and
Cahoy won the Sunday break-
away roping competition with a
2.99-second time after finishing
second Saturday. She took fifth
and third in barrel racing over the
weekend to win the average.

A large hoop barn has marked
the horizon at the Cottonwood
Field Station for a couple years. A
newly finished facility has an of-
fice, three lab rooms, a heated
shop, commodity storage, and ma-
chinery storage. Availability of the
new facilities and a desire to be-
come more integrated into area
communities prompted South
Dakota State University Ag Exper-
iment Service and SDSU Exten-
sion to host three public forums to
gather information to increase the
utilization and improve perception
of the Cottonwood Field Station.
On April 30th, May 1st and 2nd,
forums were held in Kadoka, Wall
and Philip to learn from commu-
nity members what they would
like to see happening at the Cot-
tonwood Field Station through a
series of questions. Questions
ranged from what information
they have used from the station in
the past to how the station is per-
ceived by the community. Also
community desires for utilizing the
station facilities, what research
they would like to see coming from
the station, and how communica-
tion with the public could be im-
proved. SDSU employees partici-
pated only to facilitate and listen.
On May 9th, representatives
from all three locations gathered
at the station to help determine
which ideas should be highest pri-
ority for implementation. Through
this discussion many great ideas
were generated.
The top six ideas for utilizing the
facilities were: 1) Coordinate with
innovative producers to do ranch-
based research, 2) More youth ac-
tivities with 4-H and FFA organi-
zations, such as judging schools, 3)
Reach out beyond local communi-
ties to get “city” people, including
Cottonwood forums
provide great insight
school children, to the station to
learn where their food is produced,
4) Encourage other groups, such as
Master Gardeners, to use the facil-
ities, 5) Programs such as Tri-
County Ag Day, similar to the
Rancher’s Workshop in White
River and Mission and 6) More in-
formation and education on birds,
wildlife, hunting and possibly
partnering with Game, Fish and
Ideas for research included local
application of research done else-
where, e.g. winter grazing and
mineral programs to boost im-
mune systems.
More ideas in this area were
brought forward for committee re-
view in the individual community
In the area of communication,
community members made the fol-
lowing suggestions, 1) Visit with
producers, be in the public eye, 2)
Write news columns/emails about
station activities to keep the public
aware of what is happening (possi-
bly quarterly or seasonally), 3) De-
velop a Facebook page for the Sta-
tion highlighting activities and re-
search, 4) Participate in industry
meetings, specifically to listen, and
finally attend livestock sales with
a booth and information so that
people can stop by to learn about
iGrow and SDSU research without
taking an entire day to attend a
The next step in this process is
for SDSU employees who work di-
rectly with the station to review
the discussion and determine ac-
tion steps necessary to implement
community members’ ideas.
Once these are determined, com-
munity members will be invited to
participate in and lead activities at
the Cottonwood Field Station.

Many many heartfelt thanks to
any and all who were involved in
the planning and carrying out of
the programs in my honor at the
Elm Springs Hall on May 15th and
at the CMCCC at Union Center on
May 21st. Many students, pa-
trons, friends, and family joined
together with me and my husband
Darrel in these fantastic, awe-
some, and wonderful tributes to
my 29 years of teaching!
For May 15th I would like to say
the following:
The Elm Springs Parents club:
Shirrise Linn, Kellie Linn, Cary
Johnston, Crissy Elshere, Kelly
Anders, and John Nachtigall were
super! With the aide of the music
teacher Delayna Jensen, parents
club, and the students; the stu-
dents preformed a wonderful mon-
tage of old songs I had written for
various school programs.
The quilt, with pictures of the
students and school events put to-
gether down at the Springs, is a
treasure, I could not thank you
enough or fully express what this
display of your love and support
means to me. I also deeply appre-
ciated the photo book made which
chronicles my four "rodeos" at the
Springs. What a treat to have all
the letters written for me and the
letters given to me by the patrons
of Elm Springs awarding me "Elm
Springs Teacher of the Year!" FAN-
TASTIC! Once again we did our
own thing!
For May 21st I would share;
The Rural PTO deserves a big
hand of applause for all their ef-
forts to make the awards banquet
successful. Your hard work made
the evening run smoothly! Thanks
to Jane Karp, the rural computer
teacher for her help with the slide
show. (My husband and daughter
provided the pictures without me
knowing it!) Sally Jo also sent a
letter which was read as part of
the entertainment.
The skit between Theresa Han-
zlik and Terri Barry concerning the
legalities of some of my adven-
tures was great humor! I enjoyed
it immensely. Robert Dennis
singing his version of "She's a
good old girl, been in trouble with
the law since the day she was
born" was super and a pleasant
surprise, Robert being shy about
school type activities. Aggie Jones
as a Garfield cheerleader brought
down the house and once again
she was the Queen of Comedy. We
all liked the audience participa-
tion. My former boss, Dan Olson
driving out from Spearfish was a
surprise as were some of his com-
ments. Special thanks to Mrs.
Rosenboom. The MC of the
evening, Lynn Simons, of the
Rural PTO did a great job of keep-
ing the things moving along.
So as I would say
...thanks....we will see you in the
funny papers.

"Winners don't do different
things, they do things differently!"
It's an interesting attitude I was
reminded of the other day that got
me thinking about what kind of
things winners do differently, espe-
cially as it relates to the area of
customer service.
Please note that while I am writ-
ing specifically about good cus-
tomer service, these principles,
when applied can work with any-
one-teachers/students, service
providers/ clients, medical profes-
sionals/patients, husbands/wives,
parents/children, etc.
No matter what business or pro-
fession you are in, the ability to re-
ally connect with people is one
thing that I believe separates the
winners from the losers.
Winners connect with others by
touching them in a special way,
honestly and at a heart level. They
don't just see what is on the sur-
face, but are willing to dig deep to
find out what is really unique
about the customer and his or her
needs. They search until they un-
cover the customer's source of pride
and passions, which is absolutely
vital to accomplishing any goal
they may have of connecting with
their customer.
Winners are able to take a rela-
tionship to a deeper, more mean-
ingful level, by asking the right
questions and listening to the cus-
tomer's answers. They are more fo-
cused on listening to the customer
than on trying to figure out what
they will say to make the sale, so
they hear not only the words spo-
ken by the customer, but also the
message being delivered in sighs
and body language.
Winners always respond to the
customer's needs in a positive, kind
and forthright manner, while doing
their best to keep in sync with
what the customer might be think-
ing and feeling. They never assume
or take anything for granted, and
when in doubt, they ask more ques-
Winners have one goal, and one
goal only-to help the customer
achieve their goals and reach their
dreams, and they are willing to
take the necessary risks to help the
customer achieve them, walking
them through every step of the
process. They don't mind taking
the extra time, energy and patience
required to connect with others, be-
cause they know it's worth the ef-
When winners take the time to
connect with their customers, the
result is always win-win. This is
because winners have an attitude
that says, "I want us both to win"
and they know that in helping to
meet the customers real needs,
they are also helping themselves.
Connecting with the customer at
a higher level than usual can be a
most enriching experience for
everyone involved. It is what sepa-
rates the winners from the losers.
Why not go find out for yourself,
and let me know how these win-
ning principles work for you?

USDA Farm Service Agency
(FSA) State Executive Director
Craig Schaunaman encourages
farmers and ranchers to enroll in
the 2013 Direct and Counter-Cycli-
cal Payment Program (DCP) or the
Average Crop Revenue Election
Program (ACRE) before the June 3,
2013 deadline.
“We understand that producers
are busy planting this spring, but
they can’t forget to visit their
county office and sign up for DCP
or ACRE,” said Schaunaman. “Just
as farmers and ranchers plan their
spring plantings, producers should
plan to schedule an appointment to
visit their USDA Service Center at
the earliest possible time. It’s best
to set up an appointment now
rather than wait until the day be-
fore the deadline,” advised Schau-
The sign-up for both programs
began February 19, 2013. The
deadline to sign up for ACRE is
June 3, 2013. The DCP sign up pe-
riod ends August 2, 2013.
The 2013 DCP and ACRE pro-
gram provisions are unchanged
form 2012, except that all eligible
participants in 2013 may choose to
enroll in either DCP or ACRE for
the 2013 crop year. This means
that eligible producers who were
enrolled in ACRE in 2012 may elect
to enroll in DCP in 2013, or may re-
enroll in ACRE in 2013 (and vice
