Because of the shutdown of the
federal government caused by the
lapse in appropriations, the Na-
tional Park Service has closed all
401 national parks and sus-
pended operation of dozens of
community assistance programs.
All park grounds, visitor cen-
ters, hotels, campgrounds, and
park roads – except for thru ways
– are closed. All programs are
canceled and permits issued for
special events on park grounds
nationwide are rescinded.
Park visitors in all overnight
campgrounds and lodges have
been given until no later than
6:00 p.m. Eastern Daylight Time
In the early 1990s, five women in the Wall area
began an event that brought back the miracle in
Christmas. And the belief that Santa really does
exist to children who otherwise may have had no
Christmas. These ladies formed an Angel Tree.
The Angel Tree was hosted by the First Inter-
state Bank, and area groups made the angels for
the tree.
The area orignally included New Underwood
and stretched north of the Cheyenne River and
after a few years New Underwood started with
their own tree.
The area now covers the Haakon County line
to Interior and Wasta to the Cheyenne River.
There is an average of 35 children’s name on the
tree each year.
“An Angel Tree is a wonderful thing for a com-
munity to have,” said Linda Eisenbraun. “It gives
the people of the community an opportunity to
share a little with someone who isn’t as fortunate
as they are”, stated Eisenbraun.
She went on to say, it’s a great feeling to see
Fourth grade students at the Wall School take time to read The Pennington County Courant. They like to
keep up on the sports, news and to see if they are pictured in the paper. “Life would be pretty boring with
out our local paper,” said the class and one hand shot up and said, especially for my dad. The class knows
how important a newspaper is to the community to keep them informed of government and local news and
public notices.

Government shutdown forces
closures of 401 national parks
on Thursday, October 3 to make other arrangements
and leave the park.
National parks will remain closed until the govern-
ment reopens.
The National Park System hosts more than 282 mil-
lion people per year, and more than 715,000 people per
day in October. Those visitors spend about $76 million
per day in communities near national parks.
Examples of impacts of a shutdown of the National
Park Service include:
•15,000 people a day planning to visit the Statue of
Liberty will have their reservations cancelled.
•All mule trips in Grand Canyon National Park, an
iconic tradition dating back more than 125 years, will
be cancelled.
•More than 7,500 people a day coming to enjoy Old
Faithful and the other splendors of Yellowstone Na-
tional Park will be turned away.
The cancellation of thousands of interpretive and ed-
ucation programs and special events at parks across the
An October shutdown is costing the National Park
Service an estimated $450,000 per day in lost revenue
from fees collected at entry stations and fees paid for in-
park activities such as cave tours, boat rides and camp-
The shutdown will affect more than 20,000 National
Park Service employees, who are furloughed until an
appropriation is passed (3,000 employees continue to
work, providing essential services, including security,
emergency services and firefighting). Additionally, ap-
proximately 25,000 concession employees are employed
in national parks during the summer and about half of
them are still on the job in early October.
Because it will not be maintained, the National Park
Service website will be down for the duration of the
shutdown, closing off access to 750,000 web pages about
national parks and programs. NPS.gov is used exten-
sively for educational purposes and travel planning by
91 million unique visitors every year.
For updates on the shutdown, please visit
people of all ages from grandma’s and grandpa’s,
to church groups and girl scout groups.
What an exciting way to teach the small people
to share with others when it comes to putting
gifts for some anonymous child under the tree.
A few years ago, the original five women
handed the reigns over to a younger group of
women who, because of personal or health rea-
sons have had to resign from the committee,
which leaves Wall with no Angel Tree!
Nancy Hauk and Eisenbraun are trying to re-
organize the Angel Tree Committee and really
need volunteers who believe it’s important for our
community to have an Angel Tree.
If you’re interested in helping to make sure the
kids of our area who will need a gift for Christ-
mas are taken care of, call Hauk at 279-2378 or
Eisenbraun at 457-2692
It’s up to men and women like you, to make
sure that the Angel Tree keeps the miracle of
Christmas alive in children who are less fortu-

The Wall City Council approved a motion to re-
ject all bids for the street improvement project at
their Thursday, October 3 meeting. The city engi-
neer had estimated the cost of the repairs would
be $285,673.50 and the bids came in at over
$400,000. The Street Committee will discuss the
issue and bring their recommendations to the
next council meeting.
Public Works Director Garrett Byran has
talked to the DOT about the I-90 light repairs. He
reported the State may pay for all repairs and is
waiting to hear back from them.
Wall Health Service is waiting to hear from
Rapid City Regional Health (RCRH) on the lease
agreement. Mayor Dave Hahn and Finance Offi-
cer Carolynn Anderson have put together a list of
concerns for the council to review. Hahn asked
what about the medical equipment that was pur-
chased through donations. He went on to say once
the equipment has outlived its purpose who will
replace it? Council Member Rick Hustead said we
are going to have a lot of issues if RCRH isn’t suc-
cessful. Council Member Stan Anderson noted we
will have to wait until we hear back from RCRH
and we should ask them to attend a council meet-
ing to hear what they are intending to do with the
Wall Clinic. Council Member Gale Patterson
would also like to have Brett Blasius attend a
council meeting. The issue was tabled until the
next council meeting.
The Airport Road concerns were discussed and
the Street Committee along with Byran are going
to review the condition of the road and how to re-
pair it. They will bring their recommendations to
the next council meeting.
Bryan has received quotes from HC Galloway
to update equipment on the city wells. The Water
Committee will review the quotes and come back
to the council with their recommendations.
The council approved Dave Jones as a new hire
for the city library at $7.75 an hour. C. Anderson
feels the fill-in’s should not receive the same pay
as the regular employees of the library. She rec-
ommended they should be paid the same rate as
the assistant librarian. Patterson disagreed and
made a motion to pay the fill-in’s at $8.00 an hour
with the council approving the motion.
Tim Eisenbraun has purchased the house and
garage at 428 Fourth Avenue. The council ap-
proved a completion date for the property to be
torn down and to waive the rubble site fees.

and two will be stationed in Wall. He is hoping
they will start after the first of the year.

C. Anderson asked for a motion to approve the
mayor, finance officer, president and vice-presi-
dent as signers on the checking accounts for East-
ern Pennington Country Transit and Cemetery
Bank accounts. The motion was approved.
The light for Lariat Drive was approved along
with Todd Sieler to do the trenching work for the
electrical wire. Bryan will ask West River Electric
for their recommendations on what size bulb to
The council approved a motion to purchase four
retread tires for the city bobcat.
C. Anderson commented on the two law suits
that are pending against the city. They both con-
cern falls that occurred on city streets or side-
walks. The first law suit looks like it will be set-
tled out of court. The second law suit happened in
2011 or 2012 and the city has received their first
set of questions. C. Anderson wasn’t sure where
that fall occurred.
Hahn informed the council that the sales tax re-
port is down one percent from last year.
The propane contract was approved for 8,000
gallons at $149/9.
SiteWorks pay request for $64,339.74 was ap-
The following was approved by the council:
•City of Wall minus Ray Williams bill, fire de-
partment, library and cemetery bills.
•City minutes for September 5.
•Fire Department minutes for September 10.
Council reviewed building permits for:

•Rick Sutter - carport/storage shed.
•Wall School - crow’s nest at football field and
to waive fees.

nity Center meeting room. Council will be meet-
ing before hand to discuss employee evaluations
and to meet with Bryan, whose probation period
is ending.

Western South Dakota was impacted by an October 4-5 blizzard. I-90 was closed from Murdo
to the Wyo. border. Electricity was lost and all traffic came to a stand still until city crews were
able to get out and open the streets. Reported cattle loss in the area is said to be high and with
the temperature in the 60s flooding could become a problem also. The father you travel east the
less snow is reported with balmy 70s in the east river area.

More than 160 workers from cooperatives, construc-
tion companies and the South Dakota National Guard
are assisting with repairs at six western South Dakota

By Monday, October 7 afternoon, workers from 20
South Dakota electric cooperatives as well as a Min-
nesota cooperative, a Nebraska public power district, the
South Dakota National Guard and several private con-
tractors were on scene or en route to one of six coopera-
tives. Cooperatives receiving outside assistance include:

These outside crews are in addition to the more than

been working since the beginning of the storm.
As of Monday, October 7 the electric cooperatives hit
by the storm reported that 8,200 South Dakota electric
cooperative members remain without power in a 13-
Power Crews continue to assist in Western South Dakota
county area of western South Dakota. The storm
downed nearly 3,800 poles and caused power outages to
thousands in the western part of the state.

Dakota, visit the South Dakota Rural Electric Associa-
tion storm center at http://outages.sdrea.coop/. Informa-
tion about outages within the specific cooperatives can

The South Dakota Rural Electric Association, head-
quartered in Pierre, S.D., is assisting with coordinating
crews to help the impacted cooperatives.

ciation of 31 electric cooperatives in South Dakota, in-
cluding distribution and transmission cooperatives.
SDREA is devoted to unifying, promoting and protecting
the interests of member electric cooperatives in South
Dakota by providing leadership, training, communica-

South Dakota’s 28 distribution electric cooperatives
provide electricity to more than 115,000 homes, farms
and businesses in the state, averaging only 2.4 con-
sumers per mile of line. Nationally, cooperatives average
7.4 consumers per mile of line while national and state
investor-owned utilities average more than 34 con-
sumers per mile of line.

Top 10 things the public should
know about Public Notices in
South Dakota
1. Public notices keep citizens
informed about the business of
government at all levels: cities,
towns, townships, schools, coun-
ties, state and federal govern-
2. Public notices are woven into
our nation’s founding and gover-
nance. Among the first official ac-
tions of the First Session of the
First Congress in 1789: That the
Secretary of State shall publish
all bills, orders and congressional
votes in at least three publicly
available newspapers.
3. The requirement of publish-
ing public notices not only pro-
tects the public's interest and ac-
cess to actions by elected officials,
it also protects public officials by
providing an independent, nota-
rized and permanent record that
accurately reflects their actions
and decisions.
4. Newspapers publish public
notices at uniform rates set by
state government to ensure that
costs are fair, consistent and af-
fordable. Most public notices in-
clude the publication cost. On av-
erage, the cost to South Dakota
local governments such as school
districts and cities to publish pub-
Public Notices top 10 list to know
lic notices in their official newspa-
per is less than one-half of one
percent of their total annual
5. The newspapers in South
Dakota work together to provide
an online site for all public notices
at www.sdpublicnotices.com. This
is a searchable website of all pub-
lic notices previously printed in
newspapers. It’s provided by the
newspapers at no cost to govern-
6. South Dakotans do read pub-
lic notices in newspapers. In fact,
more than half of South Dakotans
surveyed say they read public no-
tices on a frequent basis. Particu-
larly for one of South Dakota’s
largest demographics – senior cit-
izens – local newspaper reader-
ship far outpaces internet usage.
7. One often discussed alterna-
tive to publishing public notices
in the local newspaper is to put
them on a government-controlled
website. One major problem is
that government-run websites
are not designed or operated to
build and attract audiences. Put-
ting the public notices there
would be like hiding the needle in
the haystack; hardly anyone
would see them because no one
goes there. On the other hand,
newspapers and their websites
are designed to attract readers
and do so every day and every
week. Statewide survey con-
ducted by South Dakota Newspa-
per Association shows that 51
percent of South Dakotans never
access a government website
while 75 percent read their local
8. State law directs all cities,
counties and schools to annually
designate at a public meeting
their “official newspaper” for pub-
lishing all of their public notices
for the coming year. This is funda-
mental to protecting the public’s
right to know. It creates an expec-
tation among citizens as to where
to find that government entity’s
published public notices.
9. Once printed, all public no-
tices must be accompanied by a
sworn, notarized affidavit of pub-
lication by a representative of the
newspaper. That affidavit of pub-
lication is given to the correspon-
ding government entity. The en-
tire process is dictated by state
law. In effect, a legal record or
document is created.
10. Finally, good government
depends on citizens who are in-
formed. Public notices in the local
newspaper help make that hap-

Established in 1800, the Library
of Congress is the research library

It keeps important state docu-

Declaration of Independence.
Its catalog includes more than
150 million items -- books and

We have a GREAT opportunity
for you in October. Our SET meet-
ing is scheduled for Tuesday, Octo-
ber 15 from 5:30 – 8:00 p.m. in
Wall. We will meet in the Wall
Community Room.
Since we are finished with our
required modules, we have the
flexibility to offer additional pro-
fessional development around an
issue you have identified as key to
economic development in this re-
We have scheduled a keynote
speaker with great knowledge and
experience in this area.
Bob Weyrich, buyer for Prairie
Berry Winery in Hill City, will
speak with us from 5:30 – 6:15
p.m., about supporting entrepre-
neurs as a region.
Bob knows about starting small
businesses from his own personal
Opportunity awaits for you in October
experience, as well as his days as
“Ag Development Specialist” for
the S.D. Dept. of Agriculture. Bob
will have many examples of entre-
preneurial spirit, resources, and
persistence that paid off. He will
identify ways our region can find
and support entrepreneurs.
Following Bob’s presentation,
our large group will view and cri-
tique SET material that will help
us move the region toward our
goal of an entrepreneurial support
Following the SET presenta-
tion, we should have about an
hour to meet in committees and
work further on the strategic
plans we began at our last meet-
ing. As a reminder, here are the
goals we have set up committees
to work on defining:
1. Develop and maintain a sus-
tainable online presence that pro-
motes and markets the economic
development of the Badlands/Bad
River Region, which people can ac-
cess by January 1, 2015.
2. Establish a support network
for entrepreneurs to create new,
and retain or expand existing
businesses; and through usage
business in the region shows a five
percent growth in the next five
Remember our homework:
•Please invite one or two new
people who you feel would greatly
contribute to the development of
either of these two goals.
We need to involve more people
in the region in order to really ac-
complish these goals, and this will
be an excellent session for them to
come and get a taste of what this
group is doing.

Cloudy With a
Chance of
Meatballs 2
By Coach Herring
The Wall Lady Eagles traveled
to the Belle Fourche tournament
on Saturday, September 28 for
the first tournament of the year.
As always, the pool play at the
Belle Tournament is always
tough, Wall had Sturgis, Lead-
Deadwood and Bowman, N.D.
In the first game of the day, the
Eagles took on Bowman N.D.,
both teams came out slow and
took almost the whole first set to
get into any rhythm.
Wall was led by Katy Bielmaier
with eight kills and Jennifer
Emery who had seven, Emily
Linn with 14 assists and Tayah
Huether with 29 digs. Wall lost
the game 21-25, 25-23, 21-25.
Next up was a tough Sturgis
team that had a lot more height
than the girls on the Wall side.
It was hard to get a rhythm
down with the attack versatility
of the experienced Sturgis team
and as a result were defeated 16-
25 and 18-25.
Wall was led by Katy Bielmaier
with four kills, Emily Linn with
five assists and Tayah Huether
with eight digs.
The final game of the day was
against Hills powerhouse Lead-
Deadwood, who has put together
a very good team for the 2013 sea-
Last year was a great match
with them and this would prove
to be the same way, the first set
was within two points until the
very end, with Lead pulling
ahead for a 24-26 victory, and
coming back even stronger in the
second set with a 10-25 victory
over the Eagles.
Wall was led by Monica Biel-
maier with six kills, Kaitlin
Schreiber with eight assists and
Tayah Huether with 22 digs.

Lady Eagles travel to Belle Fourche tournament
I was in Washington DC re-
cently for the NAFIS (National
Association of Federally Impacted
Schools) Fall Conference and to
meet with our Congressional del-
NAFIS hosts two conferences
per year in DC for school districts
receiving Impact Aid to provide
any updated information or pro-
grams affecting the funding of Im-
pact Aid.
It is also a time to lobby Con-
gress for continued support and
funding of the Impact Aid pro-
gram at the national level.
The South Dakota Congres-
sional delegation of Tim Johnson,
John Thune, and Kristy Noem are
strong supporters of the Impact
Aid program.
Each of them is a member of the
Senate or House Impact Aid Coali-
tion group within Congress. They
all have sponsored legislations in
the past couple of years to reflect
their support.
Impact Aid is a Federal Govern-
ment obligation to pay school dis-
tricts for lost revenue in property
taxes. The government pays about
three percent of the lost tax rev-
As one of the largest property
owners in a district they need to
pay their fair share and keep the
cost down for the local property
tax payers.
Why is Impact Aid important to
the Wall School District? We cur-
rently have two Federal Proper-
ties in our school district. They are
the Buffalo Gap National Grass
From the Desk of Superintendent Dennis Rieckman
Lands and the Badlands National
The school district currently has
roughly 268,115 federal acres in
which 46,079 are eligible to deter-
mine Impact Aid payments. The
eligible acres represent roughly 17
percent of our total federal acres.
The rest of the federal acres
generate NO revenue for the dis-
If the land was in private hands
the district would be able to re-
ceive revenue to help fund our
school. Our school district will
deficit spend somewhere around
$200,000 to $250,000 per year.
We have been able to use the IA
dollars to help supplement the
budget. If we did not receive these
payments we would most likely be
asking our local taxpayers to opt
out of the levies or we would be
making more cuts in the budget.
We have a high quality educa-
tional system in Wall and we need
the IA funding to continue with
these high standards.
I am going to put a couple of in-
formation sheets concerning IA on
our website.
These question/answer sheets
will give you information concern-
ing the IA program. There will
also be a sample letter to send to
our Senators and Representative
concerning the importance of IA to
our district and the education of
our students. We will also list the
contact information for the Con-
gressional delegation on the web-
We are also looking at another
year of sequestration and less
money coming our way. It is very
important for us to continue to re-
ceive timely IA payments. Seques-
tration is a 10 year plan to cut
spending and we are approaching
year two.
These cuts will continue until
Congress and the President can
find a way to compromise and
work out a solution. I am tired of
hearing “this is what the Ameri-
can people want” from members of
either political party. What I
would like to see is a bipartisan
solution and a Congress working
for the citizens and not their own
On a different note – we have
had some damage done in the
Power House. I closed the gym for
a short period of time because of
what happened.
All users need to take responsi-
bility in the upkeep of the facility
and help deter vandalism. We are
asking all users to put the equip-
ment they use away, wipe off
equipment after use, and in gen-
eral police up the area.
I do not like closing the facility
or part of it due to negligence of a
student or community user. As
they say in the military – every-
one is responsible for safety and
the same goes for the Power
House – everyone is responsible
for the upkeep.
If you see someone doing some-
thing wrong – say something and
let us know.
By Coach Herring
Wall traveled during homecom-
ing week to Murdo to take on, and
try to avenge the first loss of the
season against the Jones Co. Coy-
As always, it was a tough fought
game on both sides with Jones Co
narrowly taking the game 21-25,
21-25, 27-25, 21-25.
Wall was struggling with confi-
dence issues early in the game
and was having trouble getting
kills to hit the floor.
The end of the second set was
when the momentum starting to
come back to the Eagles, and they
took a highly contested third set to
force a fourth set.
After leading most of the game,
Wall was unable to capitalize on
important plays and ended the
game in the fourth set.
Wall was led by Katy Bielmaier
with 10 kills, Monica Bielmaier
with three blocks, Josie Blasius
with six aces, Emily Linn with 18
assists and Tayah Huether with
42 digs.

Norman and Diane Geigle be-
came grandparents for the tenth
time with the arrival of Sully
James on October 4, 2013. He is
the son of Josh and Shasta Gei-

The Wall HS Class of 1954 met
for lunch at the Drug Store on
Thursday, the 3rd, for their

in attendance with five of them
from the original Class of fifteen.
Keep up this tradition!
“Who’d a thunk it”!? When the
meteorologists were giving their
predictions of “feet instead of
inches” of snow, it seemed impos-
sible — but we got it. Never heard
a measurement but it is heavy
with moisture and there is a lot of
it! Probably will go down in the
record books — so much, so early
in the season. There were a lot of
cancelations and postponements
because of the storm. The United
States government closing down
didn’t effect us half as much as
when West River Electric lost
power! Glad to have been in the
group who had their power re-
stored as some are still without.
Kent Lurz was released from
the Black Hills Surgical Center
on Friday. Roads were not good,
but still passable, when Kelly
drove him home. He had surgery
on his foot as a result of an acci-
dent. Heal quickly, Kent.
In the Drug Store on Monday
morning there was a busload of
tourists from Australia and New
Zealand. As the tour originated in
New York, they flew into San
Francisco and then New York for
the 23 day tour to visit our Na-
tional Parks. What poor timing!
They did enjoy Niagara Falls,
Washington, D.C., and Chicago.
Bryce Canyon and the Grand
Canyon were on their agenda.
Doug and Esther Kay Enders of
Glenrock, Wyo., came on Sunday,
the 6th, to go to Interior to help
his mother, Connie Enders cele-
brate her 88th birthday. They got
as far as EAFB when the gate
was closed to I-90. They waited
awhile for it to open but decided
to go back home. A trip is planned
to come next weekend so hope
things all work out then.
Marion Wilson, a director of
WREA, but was resigning this
year, has died. He was from Rapid
City, where the funeral and burial
are to take place. Our condolences
go out to the family.
The Senior Citizen Group YAH
had their regular meeting at
Prairie Village on Monday. With
all the snow only eight came out.
A good thing we didn’t have very
important business to discuss.
Next meeting falls on November
The “Theme” meal at Prairie
Village will be next Tuesday, Oc-
tober 15th. Menu lists roast beef,
mashed potatoes with gravy, har-
vard beets and peach crisp. Sen-
ior Citizen’s potluck supper in on
Thursday evening, October 17th.
Roy Hamann is at the Rapid
City Regional Hospital. He was
omitted on Sunday night.
Joe and Mary Roeder have a
baby boy born October 2nd in
Whitewood. He has been named
Eli Thomas. He weighed in at 7
lb. 2 oz. and measured 21 inches
long. Proud grandparents are
Tom and Jackie Shull and great-
grandmother Kathleen Shull. We
offer our congratulations and best
wishes to the family.
As with any blizzard with so
much snow, there is always the
loss of livestock. When the snow
is so deep it is hard to get out to
check how they fared. Let us hope
the loss is minimal.

The Wall and Custer football
squads met in a hard fought bat-
tle on the Custer field, last Fri-
day. Custer defeated Wall, 12-6.
Wasta high school boys kitten
ball team played against the
Quinn boys on the local diamond,
last Wednesday afternoon. The
Quinn team won by a score of 14
to 8.
Estel Schaffer ran into a horse
just west of the Cheyenne bridge,
Wednesday evening, doing consid-
erable damage to his car, making
it necessary to leave it there for
the night.
Fred A. VanVleck while return-
ing from Nebraska with a truck
load of potatoes, Tuesday after-
noon, ran into a bunch of cattle
that were being driven across the
highway killing two and breaking
a leg of a third one. The accident
happened about 25 miles south of
Kadoka on a hill where it was im-
possible to stop the loaded truck
coming down the grade. The truck
was not badly damage, only the
head lights being broken, and no
person was hurt.
The Commercial Club met in
regular session at the Miller
Hotel on Tuesday evening and
among other business attended
to, decided to send a delegation to
Pierre, in the interest of a pro-
posed road north of town as a con-
necting link in the north and
south highway. Mr. Helms and
Mrs. Geigle from north of Wall,
attended the meeting and were in
favor of trying to get the road
through her.
70 years ago…
A horse was able to stop a truck
loaded with lumber last Wednes-
day night, on the highway just
east of Wasta, but both the horse
and the truck were both put out of
commission. Fred VanVleck com-
ing home from Rapid City with
five tons of lumber run into a
bunch of horses on the highway
and plowed into one of them.
After caving in the front end of
the truck, the horse became
wedged under the front axle,
making steering of the truck im-
possible, and finally stopped the
machine. Dave Whitwer pulled
the wrecked truck to Wall the
next morning and the state high-
way disposed of the horse. The
ownership of the animal has
never been learned.
Wasta still has some beautiful
lawns even after the grasshopper
plague of the past summer. Wa-
tering of their lawns, of course, is
the answer. Their water rate is
$1.00 for the first 2,000 gallons
with 15¢ for each additional 1000
gallons. Wall’s rate is $1.50 for
the first 1,000 and 50¢ for addi-
tional 1000s. Ten thousand gal-
lons of water in Wasta costs $2.20
while in Wall, the cost is $6.00.

Rev. L. H. Bacheller, who spoke
to the Wall high school assembly
recently, has an interesting letter
in the Philip Pioneer Review of
last week, in answer to a mother
who had criticized the Freshman
Initiation of the Philip high
school. “I saw the final day and
ring ceremonies on the corner’,
writes Bacheller, “Had a good
laugh with the others who were
watching it and saw nothing that
anyone would censor. Sure, there
were a lot of odd and funny outfits
worn but none so ridiculous as
can be seen at any beach where a
lot of women go in bathing… Re-
member put a cow’s head on a calf

young people to be as quiet and

What do you do when someone does you wrong?
Do you stew about it for awhile and carry a grudge?
Thank goodness God does not treat our
"trespasses¨ that way. God grants us mercy time and
time again. We should be just as forgiving.
Ancient wisdom for modern Iife
And when ye stand praying, forgive, if ye have ought
against any: that your Father also which is in heaven
may forgive you your trespasses.

James F. Nelson________________________________
A celebration of life for Jim Nel-
son of Timber Lake, was held
Monday, October 7, 2013, at the
Timber Lake School Gym with
Pastor Bryce Schaffer of New
Hope Church of Timber Lake, of-
James Frederick Nelson was
born June 27, 1946, at Lemmon to
Fred and Emma (Sittner) Nelson.
He passed away at Mobridge on
Thursday, October 3, 2013, less
than three months after being di-
agnosed with esophageal cancer.
Jim grew up with his parents
and younger brother on a small
farm west of Watauga, in Corson
County, and at Chance, in Perkins
County. His parents taught rural
schools and sometimes were his
teachers. Jim became a lifelong
advocate of country schools. He
graduated from Lemmon High
School in 1964.
He married Kathy Snyder of
Iroquois, on June 9, 1969, at Ab-
erdeen where they had met while
attending Northern State College.
He graduated from Northern in
1968 with a major in industrial
arts/drafting and minors in his-
tory and math. He taught at
Washington High School in Sioux
Falls, and in Douglas, Ariz., Tabor,
S.D., Gayville-Volin, S.D., Crystal
City, Texas, and Geddes, S.D. In
1977, Jim and Kathy moved to
Wall, where he was employed as a
carpenter with Estes Brothers
Construction for three years.
In 1980 they bought the Timber
Lake Topic. The small town, farm
and ranch country, and the
Cheyenne River and Standing
Rock Sioux Reservations provided
a rich environment of history, pol-
itics, and community.
In 1983 Jim helped organize the
Timber Lake and Area Historical
Society, where he worked with
others who shared his interests in
paleontology, genealogy and local
history. He served as president for
a time and helped with fund rais-
ing and construction of the library
and museum in 1989 and the new
museum in 2001.
He was co-editor of the 75th ju-
bilee book, Timber Lake and Area
1910-1985, and a major contribu-
tor to the centennial book, Timber
Lake and Area 1910-2010.
With Helen Ross, Bill Alley and
others, he developed the mu-
seum’s fossil collection and con-
tributed to research on the am-
monites of the Fox Hills Forma-
tion and the dinosaurs of the Hell
Creek Formation. He helped build
a network of paleontology scien-
tists and students. One of his last
contributions was to gather some
of those people together for a plan-
ning meeting in August 2013 to
ensure that the museum’s paleon-
tology work continues.
He researched and wrote his-
tory for the Historical Society
Newsletter, the Topic, and other
publications on a wide range of
subjects including the Great De-
pression, the Fur Trade era, and
the Germans from Russia. He was
a frequent contributor at history
conferences and gatherings. He
collected and shared family ge-
nealogy, stories and photos for
many Timber Lake area families
and for his Sittner and Nelson rel-
He was never happier than
when he was in the field digging
fossils or talking to someone about
local history but he also enjoyed
carpentry, high school sports, and
a wide variety of music.
He served on the fundraising
committee for the South Dakota
Heritage Center in Pierre and the
South Dakota Hall of Fame board
and was a member of the South
Dakota State Historical Society
and the South Dakota Newspaper
Association. He was an active
member of the Timber Lake Rodeo
Those who spent time with him
in the few weeks between his can-
cer diagnosis and his death ex-
pressed admiration for his
courage and grace.
He is survived by his wife of 44
years, Kathy Nelson of Timber
Lake; a brother, Wilfred Nelson of
Las Vegas, Nev.; his mother-in-
law, Velma Leichtenberg of Iro-
quois; three brothers-in-law, Bob
(Diana) Leichtenberg of De Smet,
Scott Leichtenberg of Sioux Falls
and Steve (Donna) Leichtenberg
of Iroquois; nephews Brandon, Jay
(Misty) and Kendall Leichtenberg;
a niece, April Leichtenberg; and
many Sittner and Nelson cousins
including Dorothy Rabenberg and
Norman Frey of Mobridge; and
many, many friends.
He was preceded in death by his
parents, Fred and Emma Nelson;
and his father-in-law Robert Le-

Carolyn was united in marriage
to James L. Auker on July 29,
1961, in the Viewfield Church,
north of New Underwood. They
made their home in the Viewfield
community and Carolyn taught
rural school there for a number of
years. Carolyn then raised her
family, along with working the
dairy farm and ranch. Carolyn
was a 4-H leader for over 25 years,
and had great help and a lot of fun
with the parents in the commu-
nity. In 1986, they sold the dairy
farm-ranch and moved to Arizona
for a short time. As it turns out
city life was not for Carolyn. She
was passionate about her family,
South Dakota, and the open
spaces. Carolyn returned to South
Dakota, and returned to Black

Little Wound High School, where
she used her passion for writing to
motivate her students. She was a
strong supporter of local writers
and authors, and loved the chal-

and camaraderie that came with
the experiences she received in
Kyle, connected her with the his-
tory of the Badlands and her own
family. She was also an adjunct at
Oglala Lakota College, and work-
ing toward earning her masters
During this time, Carolyn re-
united with her high school sweet-
heart, Vernie Schnose, and they
tore it up from the floor up. They
enjoyed the outdoors, their fami-
lies, and had a deep and abiding
respect for each other. They were
united in marriage on December
16, 1996, and made their home in
the Maitland area, south of Hot
Springs. They spent their time
ranching, going to ropings, and
having fun.
Carolyn was extraordinarily re-
silient, surviving breast cancer,
ranching, teaching, and her fam-
ily, she always came out of any sit-
uation, smiling. Her whole family
looked up to her with the utmost

At a seemingly young 89 years of age, Frank has decided to retire and sell this
choice farm and ranch land that has remained in his family since before he was born,
and includes his father’s own original “Homestead Quarter”. is choice farmland
has never before been oered for sale to the public and will now be sold on the day
of auction regardless of price. A very large portion of this choice land is Class 3 soils
and has produced untold bushels of winter wheat through the years on a crop-rota-
tion basis of farming methods. Other than the hayland and pasture, the cropland
found on this farm is now in fallow and will be ready to the successful buyer(s) for
planting of spring crops in 2014. At this time, until future plans are made, Frank will
retain a Life Estate enabling him to remain in the home at the headquarters. Please
check all of the les listed on the website concerning tracts, soils, complete terms,

and one shallow water well is located on this tract.
Tract 4: ±80 Ac. – N1/2NE1/4, Sec. 9. A very picturesque tract fronted on two

or would add well to any existing operation. Includes an approx. 1.5 acre well-fed
stock dam with a scattering of mature trees in the drainage areas, an approx. 10 acre
portion of hayland and approx. 45 acres of productive mostly Class 3 soils.

1940s and has remained in the family (Donna Zidko is Dave`s daughter) all

years. Tract 1 (SE1/4, Sec. 28), the Heaton Quarter just east of Belvidere
consists of ±133.29 acres of which approx. 125.83 acres are tillable. Of these
acres, all are classified as Class 3 soils with 110 of these acres having a pro-
ductivity index of 58 and the remaining a productivity index of 71. This is a
very desirable and productive tract. Tract 2 (SW1/4, Sec. 29 & Outlot F & G,
Sec. 32) consists of ±146.74 total acres and is located on the western edge
of town. Most of these acres are tillable land with the exception of a dam and

Deficiencies in the Distribution of
Special Highway Fund Collections
Pennington County did not properly dis-
tribute Special Highway Fund collections
to townships as required by South Dakota
Codified Laws (SDCL). This is the second
consecutive audit in which a similar find-
ing was noted.
1. We recommend the County properly
distribute Special Highway Fund collec-
tions to various unorganized and organ-
ized townships as required by SDCL 32-
11-6 and 32-11-7.
2. We recommend the County consult
with legal counsel to determine appropri-
ate corrective action for the incorrect dis-
tribution of collections for prior years.

The Wall Courant has profited
by the conversion of the Rapid
City Daily Journal from linotype
composition to the newer method
of photographing letters. The
Journal’s surplus of a Lundlow,
plus forty cases of large size type
faces was bought at a fraction of
their original cost. The Ludlow is
similar to a “linotype” except it
will cast single letters or groups
of letters. It is used for headlines
of news stories and attention
lines for ads. Although this ma-
chinery was brought down to the
Courant, Monday and is in oper-
ation, there is till a lot to learn by
the operator.
