Grassland fire index very high
Officials urge caution during harvest
The South Dakota Division of Wildland Fire Suppression is asking ranchers and farmers to take extra precautions to prevent wildfires when harvesting. The dry fuel conditions along with the warm and windy weather the state is experiencing make conditions ripe for extremely fastmoving prairie fires. State Wildland Fire Division Director Jay Esperance strongly advises precautions, such as having a disk in the field, locating water tanks nearby and blowing chaff off combines to minimize the potential for fires. "We are looking at high to very high fire danger for the western portion of the state. We need to be cautious that we don't inadvertently start fires," Esperance said. West River counties are experiencing a high to very high fire danger, especially these counties: Lawrence, Butte, Pennington, Meade, Custer, Harding, Perkins and Fall River. A fire will start easily in the dry conditions and have the potential to become large and erratic, with extreme fire behavior. If a burn ban is in place in a county, no outdoor burning should take place. Daily updates for both the Black Hills Fire Danger and the Grasslands Fire Index can be viewed at South Dakota Division of Wildland Fire Suppression’s website at: http://sdda.sd.gov/ WFS/ division/ statefireinformation/default.aspx Agriculture is South Dakota's number one industry, generating nearly $21 billion in annual economic activity and employing over 143,000 South Dakotans. The South Dakota Department of Agriculture's mission is to promote, protect, preserve and improve this industry for today and tomorrow.

City council approves equipment for airport
by Laurie Hindman Wall City Council held a special meeting on Friday, September 14. Mayor Dave Hahn had questions for the council concerning the snow removal equipment for the airport. Hahn asked the council members if we should move forward at this time concerning the snow removal equipment. Stan Anderson replied we are in it this far we should continue to go all the way. It was then discussed if the bid should be for a 140hp, 150hp or more for a tractor. The tractor has to be 60 percent made in the US and that would narrow the tractor to either a New Holland or John Deere. Hahn has spoken to a community member who informed him that it would take a year or more to get a John Deere while New Holland could be delivered right away. Council members felt that a 140hp would be suffice. Since the City of Wall will have to pay for the equipment now and won’t receive the grant money until April or May of 2013. Finance Officer Carolynn Anderson asked if the tractor could be paid for next year so the 2012 budget would not be affected. Hahn said, “Specs for the bid would take a month and

School Board praises students, teachers and staff for achieving status of “Blue Ribbon School”
Sykora informed the board that the Wall Elementary School was selected for a pilot program for testing done on-line. There have been some gliches in the system which have made the testing take a little longer to complete. Sykora is waiting for assessments to come in before he puts the District Report Card on-line. He reported there are 125 students in K-6 and Big White School. Plans are in the makings for a celebration to honor students, teachers, parents and staff for being selected as a Blue Ribbon School. Wall Elementary was one of 296 schools in the nation to receive the award. Superintendent/7-12 Principal Dennis Rieckman sent out a four page document to school board members detailing what each teacher has done to further their education. Lunchtime Solutions has met with Rieckman and Business Manager Niki Mohr to visit about their business taking over the lunchroom. After further discussion the board decided to drop the issue. Rieckman explained the school has been selected to take the Benchmark exams. Flu shots will be given at the school on Tuesday, September 25. Each student and teacher will receive a free Blizzard from the Wall Dairy Queen for their hard work. Rieckman informed the board that propane contracts are not out yet. Scot Eisenbraun asked Mohr to see how much it costs to lease the tanks and what it would cost to buy them. Rieckman will keep track of attendance and he also plans to curtail the fundraising at school. With no other business the meeting was adjourned.

Minuteman Missile National Historic Site one of South Dakota’s great places
At one time in western South Dakota, there were 150 United States Minuteman missiles and 15 Launch Control Facilities acting as silent sentinels maintaining peace for Americans. Two of these sites, Delta-01 Launch Control Facility and the Delta-09 Launch Facility, have been preserved as a Minuteman Missile National Historic Site to provide visitors with a unique Cold War history lesson. This is one of South Dakota’s great places. The year was 1961, and the United States Air Force began buying secret weapons and putting them beneath the prairie grasses of South Dakota. These missiles were never launched. They did, however, act as a powerful deterrent during the Cold War. Many citizens and visitors alike never knew just how close they were to the below-ground, nucleartipped missiles. The deadly missiles were buried beneath not only South Dakota’s rural landscape, but across several Midwestern states for more than 30 years. While their locations were top-secret, their destructive power was well-known. It wasn’t until 1991 that President George H. W. Bush and the Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev signed the Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty. This treaty called for the reduction of the number of nuclear weapons across the world. Soon thereafter, the South Dakota missile launch stations were deactivated. The South Dakota launch control facilities were favored for preservation because they were among the nation’s oldest; the technology dated back to the Cuban Missile Crisis. Only small modifications have been made to the deactivated sites; much of the original mechanical equipment and historic furnishings remain. The Minuteman Missile National Historic Site is the only National Park Service site devoted to Cold War History. Visitors are led from the Visitor Contact Station by a ranger for tours of a facility which operated 10 Minuteman II missiles. The contact station also houses exhibits, artifacts, and an orientation video. Tours include an above-ground and below-ground look at the site and are offered year-round. Tickets are free and issued on a first come, first served basis. Tours last approximately 30 minutes. Delta09 missile silo site, located off I-90 at exit 116, can be explored on your own daily with a guided cell phone tour also available May-October.

The annual Ryder Cup Golf Tournament took place Saturday, September 8, at the Lake Waggoner Golf Course in Philip. The event is a competition between Philip, Wall and Murdo. There are three different ninehole segments, the first being a two-person alternate shot. This format has the first person hit the tee shot, then the other person hits the second shot, and shots alternate until the ball is in the cup. The second format is an individual match play, which has no team member. It is one person from each team playing each other, and the object is to win the most holes. The third format is a two-person scramble, which has both team members tee off and then the team decides which ball is better, and pick up the inferior ball, and both players hit from the better ball. This continues all the way through the hole. Each event has the opportunity for a tie. Scoring for the two-person alternate shot and the scramble format is four points for a win and two points for a tie. The individual match play scores two points for a win and one point for a tie. There are three trophies up for grabs. The Champions Cup is between Wall and Philip, the Interstate Cup is between Murdo and Wall, and the Ryder Cup is between Philip and Murdo. This is the ninth year for the Champions Cup, which Philip has won since the inception. The Interstate Cup is in it’s fourth year, with Murdo winning it last year, and Wall winning it all other years. This is the seventh year of the Ryder Cup, which Philip has won since it’s inception. There is a captain from each team, who pairs their members and their opponents. The captains are D.J. Rush for Philip, Dean Schulz for Wall and Steve Reed for Murdo.

Gant announces September as voter registration month
Secretary of State Jason Gant announced that September is Voter Registration Month in South Dakota. “Voting is one of the great privileges afforded Americans by way of citizenship. We want to recognize the importance of living in a country where you have a say in who represents you in government and how it operates,” Gant said. “In the last presidential election in 2008, six million people reported they failed to vote because they didn’t know how to register or missed the registration deadline. I want to make sure that doesn’t happen in South Dakota.” Voting is the cornerstone of a democracy. In order for eligible citizens to cast a ballot, they must register to vote. Therefore, Gant is working alongside organizations including the National Association of Secretaries of State and Rock the Vote to promote awareness of voter registration, culminating in National Voter Registration Day on September 25. Gant urged those who are thinking about conducting voter registration drives to carefully read instructions and laws. To be eligible to register to vote in South Dakota, a person must be a United States citizen, a resident of South Dakota and at least 18 years old on or before the next election; a registrant must not be serving a felony sentence or not judged mentally incompetent by a court of law. Complete instructions about how to register to vote in South Dakota can be found online at sdsos.gov. County Auditors administer voter registrations for residents of their counties, and voter registration forms can be filled out and delivered in person or mailed to these offices. Eligible South Dakotans may also register to vote at city finance offices, driver licensing stations, public assistance agencies including TANF and WIC, Department of Human Services offices providing assistance to the disabled and military recruitment offices. The deadline for voter registration is 15 days before any election in South Dakota. The deadline is October 22 for the 2012 General Election on November 6.

Hay to be removed from state highway right of way
The South Dakota Department of Transportation requests the cooperation of all farmers and ranchers in removing processed hay from the highway right of way. State regulations require that hay be removed from the right of way within 30 days of being processed, but no later than October 1. Removing hay bales from the highway right of way is an important safety consideration for motorists. The bales or stacks can be a safety hazard for vehicles forced to leave the road and, in some cases, can restrict a driver’s sight distance. Hay left in the road ditches late in the year can also cause snowdrifts across the highway. For more information, contact Jason Humphrey at 773-3571.
Protect small smiles with dental sealants
Submitted article by South Dakota Department of Health To seal the deal on a healthy smile for children, dental sealants can protect pearly whites. This week the South Dakota Department of Health starts its SmileSD campaign. The program educates parents and encourages them to get dental sealants for their children. As part of SmileSD, the South Dakota Department of Health will be running public service announcements on television. Additionally, dental offices in South Dakota will receive posters and brochures with more information about dental sealants to share with families. As soon as a child’s permanent molars come through, around 6-12 years old, children should get sealants and family dentists can provide sealants. This process is simple, painless and does not require drilling. A dental sealant is a plastic coating applied to teeth that can provide 100 percent protection from tooth decay or cavities on the chewing surface. The liquid plastic that is used for the sealants is designed to flow into and fill the pits and grooves on the teeth. As a painless method for keeping teeth healthy, dental sealants also provide a cost-effective way for parents to protect their child’s smile, since putting sealants on teeth costs less than a filling. Sealants may last up to 10 years, but usually closer to two or four years. Sealants can be highly effective in protection against cavities if the child continues to visit a dentist. Sealants should be checked by a dentist during regular checkups and if needed they can be re-applied. While sealants can help prevent decay, it’s till important to maintain regular visits with your child’s dentist. Also, you should brush and floss every day and use fluoride toothpaste. Ask your dentist about fluoridated water and fluoride mouth rinses, too. You can also keep smiles healthy by providing your child with healthy foods and avoiding candy and foods that contain a lot of sugar.

Wall School to present Rachel’s Challenge
Rachel’s Challenge exists to equip and inspire individuals to replace acts of violence, bullying and negativity with acts of respect, kindness and compassion. Rachel’s Challenge is based on the life and writings of Rachel Joy Scott who was the first victim of the Columbine school shootings in 1999. Through her example, Rachel’s Challenge is making a positive impact in the lives of millions of people every year. Superintendents, principals, teachers, parents and students bring Rachel’s Challenge into their schools because of escalating problems such as: bullying, student isolation, teen suicide, discrimination, school violence and increased disciplinary actions. Through powerful presentations, trainings, community events and professional development, Rachel’s Challenge provides the sustainable solution. Rachel’s inspiring story provides a simple, yet powerful example of how small acts of kindness and acceptance motivate us to consider our relationships with the people we come in contact with every day. Rachel’s Challenge renews our hope that our life has meaning and purpose. Rachel’s story gives us permission to start our own chain reaction of kindness and compassion, which positively affects the climate in our schools and communities. A few weeks after the tragedy, Darrell Scott, Rachel’s father, spoke to a Congressional House Judiciary Committee regarding issues of school violence. His speech has become one of the most widely read on the internet. Shortly afterwards, he founded “Rachel’s Challenge,” a bullying and violence abatement program. More than 2.5 million students annually experience Rachel’s Challenge and have the opportunity to accept the challenges, modeled after Rachel’s life and writings. The universal message of kindness and compassion told by Rachel’s story has been heard by students in several other countries.

Wall Eagles 1-2 for the season
By Coach Kent Anderson The Wall Eagles Football Team is off to a 1-2 start in their first three games. On Friday, August 24th the Eagles opened their season with the White River Tigers. Before half the game was suspended due to lightning. The Eagles were trailing 33 to 0 when the game was called. On Monday, September 10th, the game resumed where it left off. Wall stepped up to the challenge for the remainder of the game. The final score was White River 40 Wall 6. Although the score wasn’t close, the second half was. Wall played much better than the first half and played well. The only time White River scored or really moved the ball much was after a muffed punt. They took the ball over in good field position and put one on the board. Most of the second half, Wall moved the ball pretty well. The Eagles defense did a great job of controlling the game as well. Trevor Anderson scored on a 23 yard run on the option. Lane Blasius took the dive fake and was attacked hard by the defense. Anderson pulled the ball and ran around the left end for the score. After a missed P.A.T kick, Wall trailed by the score of 40 to 6. We gained by finishing this game. The team left the game knowing that if we could have played the entire game over, we definitely would have had a knock down drag out game with White River. Rushing Stats: Tyler Trask – 13 carries for 94 yards, Taran Eisenbraun – 10 carries for 62 yards. Team Rushing: 36 carries for 195 yards. Trevor Anderson - eight carries for 41 yards, Lane Blasius – four carries for 19 yards.

Defensive Stats: Taran Eisenbraun - 12 tackles, Carson Johnston - 10 tackles, Tyler Trask seven tackles, Cody Harris - six tackles, Les Williams - five tackles, Clancy Lytle - five tackles, Tyler Peterson - three tackles, Luke Wilkins - three tackles, Dusty Dartt - three tackles, Laketon McLaughlin - two tackles, Ridge Sandal - one tackle, Trevor Anderson - one tackle, Cade Kjerstad one tackle. The Wall Eagles took on the 2-0 New Underwood Tigers on Friday, September 7th. The Eagles played pretty good and trailed six - three at half. The Eagles came out the second half determined to change the game and put 21 points on the board in the third quarter. Tyler Trask did some fantastic running scoring from 44 and 39 yards out. The next scored came on a botched punt in the endzone with Laketon McLaughlin jumping on it for the score. The fourth quarter each team would score one more touchdown. Trask scored for the third time with a 38 yard run. The final score was Wall 31, New Underwood 20. It was a very physical game. There was tremendous emotion showed by each team. The Eagle defense played physical and aggressive all game, but especially in the second half. The offense put the ball in the endzone with Tyler Trask doing the running behind some outstanding blocking by the front line and the other backs. Rushing Stats: Tyler Trask – 27 carries for 239 yards - three touch downs, Taran Eisenbraun – 12 carries for 44 yards, Trevor Anderson – two carries for negative five yards. Lane Blasius – four carries for nine yards. Passing / Receiving Stats: Trevor Anderson – one for two for seven yards, Lane Blasius – zero for one for zero yards, one interception - one catch for seven yards.

The Eagles played physical and aggressive football but were not able to overcome the untimely penalties throughout the night. Give Kadoka credit.

Kjerstad - four tackles. Friday, September 14th the Wall Eagles took on the Kadoka Kougars. It was a battle the entire night with Kadoka coming out on top by the score of 28 to 7. Wall came out strong taking the ball down field and watched Tyler Trask take it in for the score from five yards out. Kadoka answered with their own drive but failed on the extra-point and trailed seven to six. Wall would come back and looked to answer but the touch down was negated by a holding call. Trevor Anderson attempted a 37 yard field goal but pushed it right just missing the right upright. Kadoka took the ball to mid-field before being forced to punt. Wall ran in to the punter giving them the ball back and in the Eagles territory. Kadoka would finish out the drive with a score and take a 14 to 7 lead into half. The second half would once again prove to be a battle until Kadoka struck on a 25 yard pass play for the score pushing their lead to 22 to 7. Wall made their move but were denied. The Kadoka defense took away the threat of the speed of Trask and Eisenbraun and held the Eagles for the remainder of the half. After Kadoka added another passing touchdown, the game ended with Kadoka winning the game by the score of 28 to 7.

Lady Eagles compete in triangular in Philip
By Coach Dani Herring The Wall High School volleyball team competed in Philip at a triangular with Philip and White River on Saturday the 15th. Wall played White River in its first game of the day and was tested early and often with a fast White River team that did not let many balls hit the floor. Lack of communication and little mistakes plagued the team from the whole game against White River. In the third and fourth sets we made a comeback, winning the third and losing the fourth 26-28. In the game against Philip everyone on the team played much better, and it showed as we won in three games. The girls really did a great job not getting too mad at themselves and only worrying about things that we could control. Autumn Schulz and Kim Billings led our hitters for the day with 21 and 14 respectively. Kaitlin Schreiber and Bailey Lytle combined for 45 assists and Josie Blasius led all servers with 25/29 with six aces.

Gathered by Frances Poste Stephen and Gayle Eisenbraun left early Friday morning to visit Tyler and Wendi Eisenbraun and family in Norfolk, Neb., and to celebrate their grandson Axton’s third birthday. They also visited Travis, Beth and Isaiah Eisenbraun in Mitchell, S.D. Mark and Carla Brucklacher went to Rapid City on Saturday to watch hope Tietsort, daughter of Ron and Jennifer (Brucklacher) Tietsort play soccer. Custer plays a coed team, and they played all boy teams in the Rapid League. The girls are really scrappy and took the boys teams by surprise beating both teams, 13-8 and 8-1. Ron and Bev Ingle from Pierre, S.D., visited with Roy and Dorothy Hamann on Monday. They were on their way to Rapid City to visit their daughter. Their daughter used to each at the Big White School. Gerald and Esther Wolford went to Ohio to visit relatives and friends. Gerald’s sister is in a nursing home with alzheimers, so sad. They stopped at Terry and Amy Beers on the way and again on their way home. Also, they stopped to see a friend in Chicago. Arla Olson and Mary Jane Doyle took a “Sister’s Get-A-Way” to Silver City, last week. Merlin Doyle and Barb Croell joined them for lunch at Hill City on Tuesday. A great time. Jeramy Croell and Tasha Tonne from Lawler, Ia. stopped for breakfast with Jeramy’s grandparents, Merlin and Mary Jane Doyle on Sunday. They were on their way home after attending a wedding in Spearfish. Edith, Ed and Mary Ann Strandell of Antigo, Wis., were in Wall last week. They had been out to the countryside north of Wall, where they used to live, but really couldn’t get into the place as their vehicle would drag on the trail. Their destination from Wall was to Chadron, Neb., to attend a Hindman family reunion (Edith’s maiden name). Senior Citizen potluck supper will be this Thursday, September 20th, at 6 p.m. Hope to see you there! “Theme” meal at Prairie Village is scheduled for Monday, September 24th. Menu lists a deluxe burger (hamburger, bun, lettuce, tomato), hash browns, baked beans, pears and strawberry shortcake. Bet no one goes away hungry! Our flag flew at half-staff last week — first to commemorate the anniversary of the tragedies the United States suffered on September 11th; then it stayed half-staff for the ambassador and colleagues who were killed in Libya. Congratulations to Roy and Dorothy Hamann as they celebrate 72 years of married life. I believe a pizza party was planned for family. Mike and Cheryl Jedlicka of Sioux Falls, spent Friday night with Donna. They were on their way home from vacation. David Jedlicka of Rapid City, was able to join them Saturday morning for breakfast and a visit before they left for home, that day. Lyle Williams had cataract surgery at Ft. Meade on Friday. For some reason, it wasn’t as easy as when he had the first eye done. We wish him well. The Black Hills Youth Football — Mitey Mites, Junior Pee Wees and Pee Wees — have had some home games that have been attracting attention — grandparents and great-grandparents especially have enjoyed the entertainment.

Over 500 riders take part in Mickelson Trail trek
Three days of sunshine helped make the 15th annual Mickelson Trail Trek a success. "The ride went well, and we couldn’t have asked for better weather," said Dana Garry, Mickelson Trail manager. "We were excited to have 560 riders, of which 15 were returning for their 15th year." This year’s event, held Sept. 1416, brought people to the Black Hills from 28 states. Over the three days, trekkers rode past scenic Sheep Canyon, Crazy Horse Monument, across the Freedom Bridge south of Mystic and rode into Lead/Deadwood on the final leg of the trail. "The beautiful Black Hills scenery and fall colors help attract riders each year," said Garry. Staff from the South Dakota Division of Parks and Recreation, along with many volunteers, worked hard to pull this year’s Trail Trek together, Garry said. She especially acknowledges and thanks the volunteers and community chambers of commerce that greeted the trekkers with water, snacks, ice cream and meals along the way. The annual ride is held the third weekend of September, with the 2013 Trail Trek scheduled for Sept. 20-22. Online registration should be available in December, and Garry encourages riders to sign up as early as possible to ensure a spot in the ride. The trek is limited to 600 riders. For more information on the Mickelson Trail, visit www.MickelsonTrail.com or contact the Black Hills Trails office at 605-584-3896. Photos from the 2012 Mickelson Trail Trek are available on the George S. Mickelson Trail facebook page.

won first in Team Roping at a Pro Rodeo in Altus, Okla., September 10. They are going on to Albuquerque, N.M., and some other pro rodeos in Okla., and Kan. Bill and Shaun won Wagner SDRA rodeo with 4.07 seconds and Buffalo with 4.08 seconds last weekend. 10 years ago… The Eagles met a tough Sully Buttes team Friday night in Wall. While the game was a low scoring one, Sully Buttes managed to see the end zone one time for their win over Wall. Weather conditions made it a tough game for both teams. The slick football and field accounted for some of the turnovers during the game. The game remained scoreless until Sully Buttes scored in the second quarter and would be the only player to cross the end zone for either team all night. Final score, Wall 0, Sully Buttes 6. The Eagles volleyball team improved their record to 5-1 with their win over Kadoka, last Thursday. The game ended in only three matches with the Eagles winning 25-10, 25-17 and 25-17. In an effort to aid the drought’s impact on the local agriculture economy, the Wall School Board approved the reduction in the Capital Outlay mill levy. The proposed motion passed on a four to three roll call vote. Voting for the reduction were Sue Eisenbraun, Casey Trask, Glen Lakner and Tom Wing. Voting against the proposal were Marty Huether, Kent Kjerstad and Rose Barber.

The Looking Glass of Time
80 years ago… The regular meeting of the Town Board of Trustees was held at Fire Hall, Wall, S.D., September 6, 1932 with the following members present: Peter Muller, J. F. Street, Walter Jones. After a discussion of the present street light rate, J. J. Cihak of the Wall Light & Power Co., submitted a proposition to furnish present number of street lights with 100 candle power bulbs, siren and fire hall lights included. Street lights to be on until 10:30 o’clock at night, at a flat rate of $27.00 a month. On motion, the proposition was accepted. Motion by Muller and seconded by Street, on and after October 1, 1932, the present water meter rate of $3.75 per quarter shall prevail and remain in force. For this $3.75, the consumer shall be allowed to use 6000 gallons, there shall be an additional charge of 35 cents per 1000 gallons. A group of about 17 fellows have checked out football uniforms. Much heavy material and some fleet footed lighter weights give promise for a stone wall line and a fast backfield. The schedule of games is nearly complete according to Coach Marsh. 70 years ago… The Quinn school opened last week with 28 high school pupils and 40 grade students enrolled. James Holsinger, the Quinn coach the past two years, is now the superintendent. Isabelle Hamlin and Hazel Wikolm are the two other high school teachers, while Marie and Luella Krebs and Nell Willuweit make up the grade school faculty. The Wasta school enrolled 23 in the high school last week and 40 in the grades. Justine Bale has taken the place of Chas. Berry as the Wasta superintendent.

Others listed with this group are Floyd Melvin Killian and Francis Krulls of Wasta; Charles Lewis Heathershaw of Conata; Edwin Edward Denke of Pedro; and Carl Warren Schreiber of Quinn. 60 years ago… The Wall Eagles had their wings clipped in their opening football game at Midland, Thursday afternoon. The boys had expected an easy victory, but from the start were unable to get to clicking. They took the small end of an eight to two score. The only touchdown which was made by Midland was on a fluke. Billy Peterson hit the ball carrier so hard that the ball tumbled loose and rolled over the goal line with a Midland lad falling upon it. BIRTH: Born to Mr. and Mrs. Harold Mortensen, at a Rapid City hospital, a son, September 7. Vernita Mae Hocking, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Glenn Hocking, and Ralph White, son of Mr. and Mrs. Wayne White, Scenic, were united in marriage, August 30, at St. Joseph Church in Denver, Colo. The groom is a graduate of New Underwood high school and was recently discharged from the Marine Corp in San Diego. The bride is a graduate of Wall high school and has been employed in Rapid City the past two years. Pvt. Robert V. Schell, son of Mr. and Mrs. William V. Schell, Wasta, now is serving with the 28th Infantry Division in Germany. Private Schell entered the Army last January. He arrived in the European theater in July. Pursuant to due call and notice thereof, a special meeting of City Council of the City of Wall, was duly held at the Filtration Plant in said City on Tuesday, the 9th day of September, 1952. The City Auditor and the following Aldermen were present, Shelton, Crown, Hustead and Hamann; and the following were absent: Mayor Connolly, Best and Mills. The Wall Rodeo Committee and several business men appeared before the council to discuss the location of the Wall rodeo. It was decided that the City Auditor should call Mr. L. V. Hanson, Director of the South Dakota Aeronautics Commission, Pierre, and request that he attend a meeting in Wall at his earliest convenience to discuss the hazards constituted by the location of the Wall Rodeo chutes and corrals. 50 years ago… Architects are busy drawing plans for a new bank building in Wall with construction expected to start yet this fall. Charles Burke, chairman of the bank’s board of directors and L. M. Wasepke, both men from Pierre, completed the transaction for the land with Orval Doyle on Thursday of last week. The location of the new building will be on the former Kingsbury lots. The present building on the lots has been purchased by Bob Bielmaier and will be moved. Delbert Sebade has taken over the management of the Wall Branch of the Underwood State Bank which is now in the process of having its name changed and the main office moved to Wall. Four Wall grade school children were apprehended at the old town dam last week with a deer rifle and a box of shells that had been taken from the pickup of Cliff Szarkowski. The juveniles were turned over to their parents for reprimanding. The Wall Eagles football squad had to give way in their opening game to the Vale Beetdiggers, Friday afternoon, 28 to 9. Wall was able to hold their opponents to a single touchdown in the first half, but allowed them three touchdowns and two extra scores on runs after touchdowns. 40 years ago… Mr. and Mrs. Earl H. Waterland, Marcus, announce the engagement and forthcoming marriage of their daughter, Norma Jean, to Marvin L. Williams, son of Mr. and Mrs. Lyle L. Williams, Owanka. Norma is a 1970 graduate of Sturgis High School and is a Business Education major at Black Hills State College. Her fiance is a 1969 graduate of Wall High School and is also enrolled at BHSC where he is majoring in Biology. An October 21 wedding is being planned. The Delmer D. Paulsen family of Quinn, has been selected as the Pennington County “Farm Family of the Year”. The selection was made by the Farmers Home Administration, the rural credit agency of the US Dept. of Agriculture. The marriage vows uniting Shirley Sieh and Stuart Lee Kitterman were exchanged on August 19 in the Wasta Methodist Church. Rev. Kenneth Hairgrove officiated at the double ring ceremony with friends and family members in attendance. The ceremony included the family circle. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Clifford Sieh and Mr. and Mrs. David Kitterman. Fifteen highway construction projects estimated to cost over $7 million are scheduled for letting by the State Highway Commission at their September meeting. Included are: PENNINGTON - three miles of structures, approach grading, and asphalt concrete on a county road from Rapid City to the Meade County line; and traffic signals and pavement markings at the interchange of West Omaha Street and Mountain View Road, and West Chicago Street and Sturgis Road in Rapid City. The contract letting on I-90 toward Cactus Flat that was postponed from the August meeting is not listed for the September meeting. No reason was given in the Highway News Letter. 20 years ago… BIRTH: Born to Troy and Dawn Richter, a daughter, Kelsey Marie, August 19, 1992. Little Kelsey weighed 9 lbs. 1 oz. and joined brother Dalton at home. Proud grandparents are Don and Gloria Kelly, Wall, and Karl and Neoma Richter, Enning.

On Friday evening, September 11, the Wall Eagles Football Team locked horns with the St. Thomas More Cavaliers. When it was over, Wall came out on top, 50-6. T.J. Ruland and Coy Thompson won second at the Bad River Futurity Youth Timed Event Rodeo in Ft. Pierre, September 12 and 13. They each won a fancy Pro-Rodeo bag. Shaun Ruland and Billy Gallino
Time winding down for Canada geese donations
South Dakota goose hunters have only a few days left to take advantage of the opportunity to donate Canada geese harvested during the Early September Canada Goose season. Donations may be made through Sept. 21 as part of an agreement with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service to allow hunters to contribute Canada geese through the Sportsmen Against Hunger program. In turn, the Sportsmen Against Hunger program has worked to offer an incentive to cooperating meat processors in South Dakota to process Canada geese. Geese may be taken to cooperating facilities and processed at no fee and distributed through Sportsmen Against Hunger to the needy. After Sept. 21, harvested geese will no longer be accepted through Sportsmen Against Hunger program, however that does not preclude individuals from gifting to another individual. U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service regulations restrict individuals from receiving, possessing, or giving to another, any freshly killed migratory game birds as a gift; except at the personal home or domicile of the person making the donation or the person being donated to, unless the birds have a tag attached, signed by the hunter who took the birds, stating such hunter's address, the total number and species of birds and the date such birds were taken. For information on participating meat processors, visit the Sportsmen Against Hunter website.

WHAT SHALL WE DO?
By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam When John the Baptist appeared as Christ’s forerunner, God’s chosen people had lived under the law of Moses for fifteen hundred years but had not kept it. Hence John’s call to repentance and baptism for the remission of sins (Mark 1:4). John was in earnest, too, for when the thoughtless multitude came to him to be baptized, he sent them back, saying: “Bring forth fruits worthy of repentance” (Luke 3:7,8). Their lives were to be changed and they were to show it. When the people asked: “What shall we do, then?” he told them to live for others rather than for self (Luke 3:10,11). When the tax collectors asked: “What shall we do?” he demanded that they stop cheating the tax payers and live honestly (Vers. 12,13). When the soldiers asked: “What shall we do?” he told them to forbear violence, false accusation and bribery (Ver. 14). Clearly, righteousness was demanded under John’s message. His hearers were to repent, be baptized, and bring forth the fruits of true repentance. When our Lord appeared, He proclaimed the same message as John (Matt. 3:1,2; 4:17). A lawyer asked: “What shall I do to inherit eternal life?” and He replied: “What is written in the law?” When the lawyer recited the basic commands of the Law, our Lord answered: “This do and thou shalt live” (Luke 10:25-28). God was still demanding righteousness. They were all under the Law (Gal. 4:4,5; Matt. 23:1,2; etc.). Some suppose this was all changed after Calvary by the so-called “great commission.” This is not so. When, at Pentecost, Peter’s hearers were convicted of their sins and asked “What shall we do?” Peter commanded them to “repent and be baptized… for the remission of sins” just as John had done (Mark 1:4; cf. Acts 2:38). He did not tell them that Christ had died for their sins. Paul was the first to say: “But now the righteousness of God without the law is manifested… [We] declare His righteousness for the remission of sins” (Rom. 3:21-26). When the Gentile jailor fell on his knees and asked: “What must I do to be saved?” Paul replied: “Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt be saved” (Acts 16:30,31). This is God’s message for sinners today, for “we have redemption through [Christ's] blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace” (Eph. 1:7).

Lady Eagles defeated by St. Thomas More
From the desk of Superintendent Dennis Rieckman
By Dennis Rieckman We are off and running with the new school year. We have 242 students enrolled in K-12 with 16 of these students being new to the district. Included in the 242 students are 11 students enrolled at the Big White School. We started the school year on a high note with the results of the Dakota Step assessments coming in strong for grades third - eighth and 11th. The class of 2012 left their mark on the way out the door with an ACT composite of 24.2 which is three points higher than the state average. It takes a strong commitment from students, staff, and parents to achieve this success. On September 7th, the Wall School District was notified that the Wall Elementary School was nationally recognized as a Blue Ribbon School. We will have more information concerning the award in the near future. It is a tremendous honor for students, staff, and parents. Mr. Chuck Sykora, Elementary Principal provided the leadership and did the groundwork to make this happen. He should be commended for his leadership where the elementary school has been a distinguished school for seven straight years and was recognized last year as a Distinguished Title One school. There have been some grumblings concerning the lunch program and the lack of adequate portions. The new guidelines are coming down from the federal government in response to providing proper nutrition for our students. We are following the guidelines as much we can, but we want to make sure our students are being fed enough food as well. Students can have all the fruits and vegetables they want every day. If they want seconds on the main entrée they can pay $1.00. We did raise the price for the students in keeping pace with the federal guidelines. Instead of raising the price one time at a bigger expense, the board chose to increase a little at a time. The Power House is open for the public to use, but I need to remind everyone the students and school activities have a priority over anything else. The Power House will be open until 9:00 p.m. with a supervisor. The rules currently do not allow any students to be in the Power House unsupervised. All school students need to leave at 9:00 p.m. when it is being closed. There are new hours posted at the Power House. Students are not allowed to use their parent’s key card without adult supervision around. So I am asking parents to be aware when their card is being used. If there is a problem or the problem continues the card will be turned off. We have installed security cameras in the building so we have a good idea who is coming and going. The Power House is shut down to everyone from 10:00 p.m. until 5:00 a.m. The Power House is there to be used, but everyone using the facility needs to abide by the rules, please put the weights away after use, respect other users, and help keep the facility a great place to work out. We are planning an open house/celebration on Wednesday, September 26th. We will be serving a supper and the teachers will be in the classrooms to answer any questions for anyone. We have also arranged to have an assembly in the evening from 7:00 -8:00 p.m. called Rachel’s Challenge. Rachel was the first student killed in the Columbine school shooting in Colorado several years back. The entire evening is open to the public and I encourage everyone to attend. The students will have assemblies and training sessions with the Rachel Challenge group earlier in the day. The third - eighth and 11th grade students are taking part in a pilot program this year. The Benchmark Assessment Exams will be given four times during the school year. The feedback back to the school is immediate and will show us what standards we need to work on. We just finished with the first round and will take another round in December. All schools are moving toward the implementation of the Common Core standards and this gives us an opportunity to measure where we are at. These exams are in the math and reading areas. With the move to the Common Core Standards in language, arts and math there needs to be patience shown by students, teachers, and staff as we work to implement them. The standards can be found on the SD Department of Education website for anyone interested. Teachers will be changing the way they prepare and deliver lessons. They are written in a way where the standard is built on and developed as the students move from grade to grade. You will be hearing more about the standards as the school year moves along. I want to remind everyone we do have a complaint policy in place and if you have a complaint or concern about something or someone – please start the process by visiting with the teacher or coach. There are always two sides to a story and maybe what you have heard is not always the full story. The Haakon County Health nurse will be in Wall on Tuesday, September 25th sponsoring a flu shot clinic from 3:00 – 6:00 p.m. You may pick up permission forms in the office. They will be at the Big White School on October 9th. On a final note, our teachers and staff have put in a lot of time during the summer taking classes which all leads to a better experience for students. The Common Core training was the main focus for many teachers. I appreciate the extra time they have been willing to give to help our students. I look forward to a great year at the school and we will work hard to keep our academic programs on a high level.
Lady Eagles Senior Kim Billing’s goes up for a spike against St. Thomas More. The Lady Eagles lost 3-0 in Wall on Tuesday, September 11. ~Photos Laurie Hindman
By Coach Dani Herring The Wall Lady Eagles hosted St. Thomas More (STM) in their home opener on Tuesday, September 11. STM is a perennial powerhouse in volleyball and provided tough competition for the Eagles. Nerves and lack of communication plagued the team all night with most of the points lost coming off of unforced errors. Wall came out strong in the first part of each game before falling behind in the middle. In each set they rallied towards the end but ultimately the deficit was too much to handle and the Eagles fell 25-17, 25-15, 25-18. Wall was led in serving by Freshman Josie Blasius who was 11/14 with three aces. Autumn Schulz and Kim Billings led hitters, each contributing four. Bailey Lytle led the team in assists, with eight. Wall takes on Faith in the next home game on Thursday, September 13th before traveling to Philip for a Triangular with Philip and White River. Stats: G1 G2 G3 Final Wall: 17 15 18 0 STM: 25 25 25 3

WALL CITY COUNCIL MEETING
SEPTEMBER 6, 2012 6:30PM The Wall City Council met for a regular meeting September 6, 2012 at 6:30 pm in the Community Center meeting room. Members present: Dave Hahn, Mayor; Rick Hustead, Councilman; Bill Leonard, Councilman; Mike Anderson, Councilman; Stan Anderson, Councilman; Jerry Morgan, Councilman Others present: Carolynn Anderson, Finance Officer; Jeff Clark, Public Works Director; Lindsey Hildebrand, Chamber/Assistant FO; Sergeant Dan Wardle, Pennington County Sheriff; Laurie Hindman, Pennington Co. Courant; Pandi Pittman, Teen 19; Ted Schulz, Cetec Engineering; Jim Kitterman; Kevin Kjerstad; Thomas Van Osdal; Rick Johnson; Preston Johnson (All action taken in the following minutes carried by unanimous vote unless otherwise stated.) Motion by S Anderson, second by Dunker to approve the agenda. Motion carried. Sergeant Dan Wardle presented the police report. Schulz from Cetec presented an updated plan to the sewer/lagoon project. Recommendations are to increase from a 10 inch clay sewer main to 15 inch PVC in the proposed area and to increase the slope on the pipeline, affectively increasing capacity from 450 gallons per minute to 1,870 gallons per minute. The estimated cost is between $738,000 and $814,000; depending on the inclusion of all phases. S Anderson commented that the committee had decided that the project was important enough to do the entire project rather than in phases. The committee recommends using all of the wastewater reserves and most of the money in the wastewater account to achieve this project and possibly take out a minimal loan. Dunker questioned the need to keep cell 2. Schulz said it is a subject of discussion; one possible option is to move the sludge from cell 1 into cell 2 and cap it. The project would start in the spring of 2013 with a proposed deadline of the fall, with bids opening in January. Motion by S Anderson, second by Morgan to move forward with all phases of the sewer/lagoon project. Motion carried. Thomas Van Osdal apologized for his behavior at the pool, presented a check for cost of cleanup at the pool, and volunteered one day of his service to the city for any project they may have. At this time building permits were reviewed: Dennis Rieckman for a carport, Jeff Clark for a storage shed, Bill Zebrowski for a deck with roof Motion by Hustead, second by M Anderson to approve liquor license for the Two Bit Saloon to serve/sell alcohol in the community center on September 7th and 8th. Motion carried. One bid for the snow removal equipment was received for $192,000. New FAA requirements state equipment needs to be 60% or more manufactured in the United States. The bid does not meet those requirements; therefore, it can not be accepted. The Federal calendar year ends September 10th and the start of the new fiscal year matching fund amounts increase from 2% to 5%. The snow removal equipment has to be purchased within 2 years of the new building project. Preston Johnson talked with an implement dealer and if specifications were changed, the 60% requirement could be possible, it would also be cheaper as it would be a smaller piece of equipment so the city’s portion wouldn’t be as much regardless of the 5% matching funds. Kevin Kjerstad commented on the importance of the pilot lounge at the airport. He will not land at an airport that does not have this type of facility. The lounge would be a place to provide food or drink, a place to rest, get out of the elements and provide weather reports. The FAA has money to spend on this type of projects to stimulate the economy. Kjerstad noted that the cost to the city for the building is minimal for the type of building being built and the snow removal equipment that will also be housed within. Kjerstad also noted that accepting the grant will jeopardize the possibility of having enough reserve money for the runway extension. The FAA has been unable to finalize those plans for many years so he strongly urged to move ahead with the building project but to keep in mind the need for a runway extension. Preston Johnson commented that the facility will not directly benefit him, but will help the city attract more airplanes. Johnson stated the current runway will decrease by 600 feet if it is ever resurfaced. This is because of the proximity of the EFree Church and Golden West. If the extension project is not completed, he would be forced to move to a different primary location. There has been approximately $20,000 spent on engineering fees for the building project so far and will not be refundable if the project is not completed. If the project is completed the City’s investment in the building would be a total of $4,000. Motion by S Anderson, second by Leonard to proceed forward on the airport building and accept the bid of $182,000 from Custom Environments. Motion carried. Motion by Dunker, second by M Anderson to tentatively forward the Ambulance District lease agreement for the building and equipment to the attorney for his review. Motion carried. The finance committee met after the August council meeting to review the budget and make adjustments for a balanced budget. Motion by S Anderson, second by Hustead to approve the 2nd reading of Ordinance 12-05; 2013 Appropriations with proposed changes. Motion carried.

Pennington County Courant • September 20, 2012 •

Next on the agenda was the 2012-2013 budget approval. 4732. Johnson moved to approve the 2012-2013 budget with proposed changes. Seconded by Anderson. Motion carried. Elementary Principal Sykora announced the Elementary School was recognized as a Blue Ribbon School, which is a national recognition. Sykora stated it’s an honor and the students and staff have worked hard to earn this recognition. Our school is part of a pilot program through the State. Our students are working through benchmark assessment tests. There have been a few glitches and Mrs. Sundall will report that information back to the State so they can improve on the program. The first week of school went fairly well. The little ones are learning the routines and their lunch numbers which is slowing things down in the lunchroom, but this is typical for the first few days of school. Enrollment for K-6 and Big White is 125. We are averaging 16 students in each grade. The largest class is first grade with 21 students and the smallest is third grade with 11. Sykora continues to develop the district report card. He is waiting for the Assessment Report to be posted to the state website. When the report card is completed, copies of it will be distributed to local businesses. Business Manager Mohr had nothing to report. Superintendent/7-12 Principal Rieckman gave the Board a summary of the professional development that the teachers/staff have completed over the summer. Next, he discussed a meeting the administration had with Lunchtime Solutions. Lunchtime Solutions is a company which runs schools’ foodservice programs. He asked the Board if they were interested in having the administration pursue the financial analysis with Lunchtime Solutions. After brief discussion, the Board members decided not to complete the financial analysis at this time. Rieckman noted the following upcoming events: September 26th – Rachel’s Challenge, Community Program at 7 pm at the school gymnasium and September 25th – Flu Shot Clinic at the school from 3 pm to 6 pm. There was brief discussion about rewarding the students and staff with blizzards again for their hard work and high achievement in the Dakota Step tests. The Board was in agreement with doing this again. Next, Rieckman notified the Board that De’s Oil is not contracting propane at this point in time. There was discussion about different options. Eisenbraun requested that Mohr find out how much the district pays for tank rent and if we have an option to buy the tanks. Bielmaier noted there was a concern about the stairs in the boys’ locker room at the Power House being slippery. Rieckman agreed to get some safety tape on the stairs. With no further business brought to the board, Chairperson Eisenbraun declared the meeting adjourned at 8:06 p.m. Respectfully submitted by Niki Mohr, Business Manager ______________ Scot Eisenbraun, Chairperson TOTAL FUNDS

RAISe yOuR "AWAReNeSS" Of BeNefITS Of LIfe INSuRANCe Richard Wahlstrom www.edwardjones.com You may be unaware of it, but September is Life Insurance Awareness Month. And when you consider the lifetime of benefits you and your family may receive from life insurance, you might agree that a month isn’t too long to spend on this important part of your overall financial picture. Unfortunately, too many Americans are uninsured or under-insured. In fact, nearly a third of all consumers think they need more life insurance, according to the 2012 Insurance Barometer Study, published by the nonprofit LIFE Foundation and LIMRA, a research and consulting organization that specializes in insurance and financial services. And it appears that one of the main reasons so many people lack sufficient life insurance is their perception that they can’t afford it. Yet, the cost for basic term life insurance has fallen by about 50 percent over the past 10 years, according to the LIFE Foundation. The cost — financial, emotional and psychological — of not having adequate life insurance certainly outweighs the expense of carrying the proper coverage. You’ll hear about many things that are designed to “last a lifetime,” but in the case of life insurance, that expression is appropriate. Consider the various times in which you should look at the need for life insurance:

•When you’re married — Many married couples assume they won’t need life insurance until they have children. But if you or your spouse died, would the surviving spouse’s income be sufficient to pay off the mortgage, or even the rent? How about credit card balances, car loans or student loans? •When you’re married…with young kids — Now, in addition to having to pay off the mortgage if anything should happen to you, your surviving spouse will have to find the money to educate your children — and that’s a big challenge, given the rapidly escalating expenses associated with college. But with sufficient life insurance in place, your spouse can deal with the high costs of higher education. Furthermore, if you have permanent life insurance, such as whole life or universal life, you have the potential to build cash value, which you may be able to tap to help pay for college — while you’re still alive. (Keep in mind, though, that using some of your cash value could lower your policy’s death benefit.) •When your children are grown — Even with your children grown and gone, you can benefit from life insurance. For example, if your spouse outlives you by a decade or more, will he or she have enough money to enjoy a comfortable lifestyle? •When you’re retired — Your need for life insurance doesn’t retire when you do. For one thing, you may be able to access the cash value of your permanent insurance to help meet your retirement expenses. (Keep in mind this may af-
fect your death benefit.) And your policy’s death benefit could help your children or other heirs deal with estate taxes, if any exist. Furthermore, if you’d like to be able to pass on something to your children or grandchildren, life insurance may be an ideal vehicle, because the proceeds are typically income tax free and can avoid the timeconsuming process of probate. Life Insurance Awareness Month only lasts 30 days — but, as we’ve seen, life insurance can offer
a lifetime of benefits. So make sure you get the coverage you need.
