The Nebraska National Forests and
Grasslands (NNFG) released documents
to begin scoping for a revised land ex-
change proposed between The Nature
Conservancy and the US Forest Service.
All lands proposed for exchange are lo-
cated on the Buffalo Gap National Grass-
lands on both the Wall and Fall River
Ranger Districts.
A previous scoping period was com-
pleted in June of 2012; however after sev-
eral non-Federal parcels intended for ex-
change were changed based on public com-
ments that were received and other cir-
cumstances, it is being opened for public
All comments previously submitted will
be considered and it is not necessary to re-
submit original comments.
The primary purpose of the exchange
continues to be the consolidation of land
ownership where private and National
Grasslands are intermixed to improve
management of the Grasslands. Exchang-
ing isolated parcels of public land and con-
solidating the non-Federal land with large
blocks of National Grassland will mini-
mize potential conflicts between private
property owners and management of the
Buffalo Gap National Grasslands.
It is also the desire of the Forest Service
to acquire and consolidate lands for the
purpose of general grasslands ecosystem
restoration and specifically, continued
black footed ferret recovery efforts in the
Conata Basin.
Acquired federal lands would have pub-
lic access and be managed for multiple use
including, wildlife management, range
management including consideration of
forage reserves and public recreation such
as photography, rock hounding, hunting,
and trekking.
The Federal parcels proposed for ex-
change include approximately 3,588 acres
and the non-Federal lands proposed for ex-
change include approximately 2,493 acres.
The total exchanged value of the proper-
ties needs to be equal. If the appraised val-
ues of the Federal and non-Federal prop-
erties are not equal, parcels will be re-
moved until they are, or a cash equaliza-
tion payment may be made by either

Livestock Field Sta-
tion, September 7,
for Tri-County Ag
Day and an open
house of the station’s
newest facility.
Barry Dunn, dean
of the College of
Agriculture and Bio-
logical sciences at
South Dakota State
University, wel-
comed the attendees
to the event and con-
ducted the open
house of the new of-
orage building.
Dunn said that as
more native prairie
has been planted to
crops, it has become
more important to
manage the grass-
lands that remain.
That means that re-
search at the Cotton-
wood station, as well
as other such sta-
tions, becomes more
important to help
manage those grass-

Land Payments Summary Related to Is-
sues Concerning the Cain Creek Land Ex-
change Buffalo Gap National Grasslands.
This paper is a comprehensive formal
summary of how the exchange affects fed-
eral land payments to counties, townships,
and school districts in South Dakota.
The payments data is directly related to
Pennington County, Imlay and Scenic
Townships, and the Wall school district
and estimates how those payments might
be affected by a proposed land exchange.
Research updates presented at Cottonwood field station
With that in mind the university
chose to invest money from grants and
private donations toward the new fa-
cility. Dunn stated that very few sta-
tions are dedicated to the research of
short grass prairie and by reinvesting
in Cottonwood, everyone would bene-
fit, not only this generation, but the

Sandy Smart, range science profes-
sor spoke about the long-term project.
Smart stated that the land was di-
vided into three grazing strategies in
1942; low, medium and high density
grazing. The land contained the same
plants at that time. Over the years the
lightly grazed area began to show
more western wheat and green needle
grasses, the heavy grazed area be-
came short grasses while the medium
grazed pastures were a mixture of the
two types of grasses.
By 1969, the focus changed to stock-
ing rates so that those conditions
could be maintained.
Dunn said that producers have con-
sistently managed their land to get
the most pounds of animal off the
land, by utilizing heavy grazing; mak-

The Wall Ambulance District will not
opt-out said President Wally Hoffman and
Board Director Jem Kjerstad after Glen
Lakner asked if they were planning to at
the Ambulance District meeting held on
Thursday, September 19.
Lakner also added since the district is
having money problems. Hoffman said,
the state threw this special assessment
back in our lap and we are still research-
ing the issue and not quite sure if we can
even opt out.
Lakner then asked if the board had con-
sidered going to only one ambulance to cut
expenses to help the budget. The board
said there aren’t enough local EMTs to run
only one ambulance and the ambulance
service is basically running with only one
ambulance now. Hoffman added we need
more local volunteers to become EMTs and
the state is putting such a burdensome on
becoming one that they are pushing the
small towns out of providing an ambu-
lance service.
The board has received correspondence
from the attorney on the special assess-
ment. They will review his letter and e-
mail Anderson with questions to be for-
warded on to him for answering.
The Ambulance Service By-laws have
been forwarded to the district for financ-
ing clarifications on conference training
pay. The board decided if EMTs who have
attended six pretraining meetings and
have an active role with the ambulance
service should be paid for attending the
conference. The issue was then tabled
until the October meeting.
The following was approved:
• Minutes from the August 15 and 29
• Bills.
• Bank statement
• Budget
The next meeting will be held on Thurs-
day, October 17 at 7:00 p.m. in the Wall
Community Center meeting room.
The meeting was adjourned.

ing more money per animal. Dunn
stated he, and others, had been taught
to keep the land in better condition
and the producer would make more
money over time. But, he said, that is
not what an efficiency study showed.
The study showed the validity of the
heavy grazing and why people do it,
but he said that doesn’t mean produc-
ers have to.
Smart also spoke about the Bad
River watershed project he has
worked with. He noted that the sedi-
ment that is being dumped into Lake
Sharp where the Bad River empties
into the Missouri River is not due to
water coming off short grass range-
land, but from gullies. Pat Johnson,
range science professor, agreed that
the low graze provides more water to
run off, but it does not take the soil
with it.
Smart said the implementation of
no-till planting has helped decrease
the sediment buildup. The sediment
buildup at the mouth of the Bad River
has decreased since the mid-1990s, he
Johnson and graduate student
Christi Koehler gave an update on the
patch grazing study.
The study’s main focus is if patch
grazing could be a viable alternative
to patch burning for increasing the di-
versity of plants, improving livestock

Part of the study
looked at how graz-

this research could
help in maintaining

species numbers.
Steve Fairbairn,

cialist and Pete Bau-

discussed pasture
carrying capacity.
Gates said that by
knowing what
grasses, their
amounts, and the
moisture in the veg-
etation – knowing
the feed supply – the landowner can
allocate the correct amount of live-
stock to the pasture.
To gain some of this knowledge, the
landowner must clip samples from dif-
ferent areas of the pasture. Sampling
different areas is a must, they said,
since vegetation will vary within the
They stated that too often a
landowner gets locked into “I should
be able to stock” instead of listening to
the monitoring data. Gates urged
them to listen to the data instead.
The new frontier for rangeland
monitoring, Gates said, is the study of
microbial profiles. He said that while
this is not readily accessible to pro-
ducers, it is coming. He said a Texas
study noted that changes in the range
can be noted in the microbes before
they are noticed in the soil carbons.
Seven different 30 minute sessions
included discussions on genetic test-
ing in beef cattle; body condition scor-

status; a look inside a rumen and dis-

announced that the U.S. Depart-
ment of Transportation has
awarded an $8.77 million Trans-
portation Investment Generating

grant to upgrade 17.6 miles of
gravel road to paved road on BIA
2, which runs on the southern
edge of the South Unit of Bad-
lands National Park.
“This project is great news for
the Oglala Sioux. The road up-
grade will provide improved ac-
cess to jobs, education, and health
care for the tribe,” Johnson said.
“It should give a boost to tourism
for the South Unit of the Bad-
lands National Park, which will
generate additional economic ac-
tivity on Pine Ridge.”
The TIGER funds will allow the

SDCHIP program continues to ID kids statewide
and respect privacy by sending all
information home with the par-
ents or guardian.”
SDCHIP is part of MA-
SONICHIP, an initiative of the
Masons of North America that
generates completed packages of
carious identifying item of chil-
dren for parents or guardians.
The types of identification that
are collected include: dental im-
pressions, DNA cheek swab, digi-
tal still photo, fingerprints and
video imaged interview. All of the
identifying materials generated
by the program are returned to
the child’s family to be kept an
identification kit in the event that
a child becomes missing.
This kit will aid law enforce-
ment in the recovery of a missing
child. The program is offered to
the public at no charge.

had dreams about, or even just
wondered about.
You may learn something new,
renew your acquaintance with
something old or just….. relax.

about one of our most important
natural resources - soil.
Students learned the difference
between soil and dirt, where soil
comes from and that it takes
about 400 to 500 years to form an

There was also a question and
answer session dealing with
range plant identification and the
importance of the native range-
lands of the area.
Students were rewarded for
their participation and knowledge
with the opportunity to win prizes
related to the subject.
The program put on by Josh
Delger and Sarah Nevison, Bad-
lands National Park, provided a
lot of hands-on for the students.
They were able to actually han-
dle and identify many different
animal hides and skulls.
Many students took a turn in
lifting the 50 pound buffalo skull.
They were also introduced to the
workings of a ferret trap and
tracking collar.
Badlands National Park Re-
source Education staff presented
sessions on Badlands paleontol-
ogy and human history. Ed Welsh,
staff paleontologist, showed stu-
dents examples of fossils found in
the Badlands region and dis-
cussed the geology and ancient
landscapes associated with the
animals that existed millions of
years ago.
Alison Shoup gave students the
opportunity to discover how peo-
ple lived in the area hundreds,
even thousands, of years ago
through archeological artifacts
and practical tools made from
parts of a bison. One example is a
bison bladder being used as a
water canteen.
In the words of one of the stu-
dents attending – “Thank you for
a great start to the school year
and I am looking forward to the
rest of the year”.
One of the main priorities of the
Jackson County Conservation
District is education of our youth.

The first Annual Stephanie
Williams Memorial Rodeo was
held on September 15, 2013 at the
Wall Rodeo Grounds with a large
crowd of support throughout the
entire day.
Pastor Ron Burtz of the Wall
Evangelical Free Bible Church
spoke at the church service held
at the rodeo grounds. Pastor Ron
spoke to the crowd about focus
and faith.
The WEFBC worship team
sang four beautiful songs, many
which brought tears to the crowd,
with a healing message of hope.
A potluck followed the church
service, with more food than any-
one could have imagined. Along
with the potluck, a silent auction
was held in benefit of scholarship
More than 82 contestants
signed up to compete in the first
annual rodeo. Greg Anderson car-
ried in the Amercian Flag while
Chris Aman sang the National
Marty Williams then led
Stephanie’s saddled horse
“Derby” into the arena with their
kids Jaicee and Stran following,
in a traditional tribute to a lost
cowboy or cowgirl.
Chris LeDoux played on the
sound system as Marty led the
horse to the center of arena, while
Jim Thompson called for a mo-
ment of silence. The emotional
tribute to Stephanie was a beau-
tiful reminder of her love for
rodeo and those around her.
The largest age division was
the 30 and older ladies, with

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by
Lloyd & Margee Willey
We are still in the “grateful to
all mode” and maybe, just maybe
we will choose to continue — it is
a pretty good mode to be in!
Wasta had some excitement
over the weekend. The annual
gathering of the Buckaroos was
held at Darwin Hook’s place and
Wasta folks got to enjoy the bene-
fit of riders gathering. It puts us
in mind of some of the stories Les
Kirkham would tell about work-
ing as a young boy for the Trasks
and being in charge of cattle wait-
ing to be taken off on the train.
He had said Wasta was “real
lively” during those times.
This seemed like a huge group,
someone did say there were about
300 riders.
Several of us made the decision
to find a place to park on the old
highway and watch as the group
came out of the trees along the
river and made their way to begin
the trek along the ridge of the
black and gold highway, Sunday
It was something to see, all
Mary Lewis and Faye Bryan,
Barb Crawford and Jerry Schell
and Lloyd and I shared the same
vantage point — some had the
foresight to bring cameras so we
will be able to review the experi-
This is probably pack it up and
go home day, thanks for choosing
Wasta! You had a perfect place
down there along the river.
The same day, Saturday, later
in the afternoon, the Wall Eagles
Mitey Mite Team sponsored by
Wall Drug, had a game. It’s a good
place to get to see and visit with
Anne Jo Rausch and Beau
Spotted Bear, along with
Gretchen Rausch were there to
cheer on #75, Kaylen Spotted
Bear. Dayton Skillingstad had
grandpa Ken, sister Kortny and
her husband Derek and two
daughters, Natalee and Kylee
Smid and Lloyd and I cheered for
all! The Eagles did a great job of-
fense and defense and the final
score was about 35-0. I neglected
to mention Natalee is a cheer-
leader and those girls also did a
great job. Doreen Skillingstad is a
team “Mom” so she was busy on
the field.
Carl Humphrey called Had-
locks to say that his daughter,
Marilyn Stover, had been diag-
nosed with West Nile Virus.
Let’s keep her in our thoughts
and prayers and a caring phone
call or cheering card is also
Ash Grenstiner said school was
going fine and she is playing vol-
leyball this year. Sister Madi en-
joys basketball and their season
will begin after volleyball.
Ken and Danene Skillingstad
have enlarged their entry porch
and it looks both functional and
very nice.
Mavrick Williams, son of Jamy
and Ray, is a happy one year old
as of Tuesday, the 17th. What a
very nice and happy little boy.
The other one year old, Kylee
Smid, celebrated her birthday in
June and is also a happy child.
Maybe there is something to this
Wasta water legend!
Sunday, September 29 at 2:00
p.m., we will be having our cele-
bration picnic.
Lurz Park, Wasta, 2:00 p.m.,
We have the sloppy joes, you
bring a dish to share.
Marilyn Keyser is fixing her
awesome beans so let’s get to-
gether for One More good time
gathering in the park before win-
However, we are prepared to
move to the community hall just
in case of rain!
See you Sunday! Once again
thank you everyone for your gen-
erous support and help in getting
us to Gold in the Relay For Life
Happy Trails!

Bill Leonard celebrated his spe-
cial birthday on Sunday by going
out with Kay for dinner.
Randy Williams, his daughter
Amanda and James Hoehne and
grandson Cooper came from Lin-
coln on Thursday to visit in the

Williams was home, also, from
the University of Sioux Falls.
They all left for their respective
homes on Sunday.
James Hoehne (Amanda’s hus-
band), Gary, Leslie and Randy
Williams went to the football
game Friday night at Presho. The
Wall Eagles came out as winners.
We like that!
The “Quinn” ladies have
started to meet for lunch again:
monthly on the third Wednesday;
12:30 p.m.; in Rapid City. They
met last Wednesday. Maxine
Smith and Frances Poste had
things to do in Rapid City that

Phyllis Denke and her daughter
Jeanne, Dorothy Denke, Betty
Bryan and Fran Tennyson.

Congratulations go out to Lois
Price Shearn as she celebrated
her 99th birthday on Sunday,
September 22nd. Many years ago
she taught school, at least one
year in Quinn, 1939-40.
Our congratulations, also, to
Roy and Dorothy Hamann as they
celebrated 73 yeas of marriage
last Tuesday. Roy is sporting two
very black eyes and now his
whole face seems to look bruised.
He said, “Seventy-three years of
marriage and I talked back once!”
We know differently.
‘Theme” meal last Thursday
brought out over forty guests.
That same evening was senior cit-
izen potluck supper, even so,
there were twenty some there.
Lots of food! Bingo was played
after supper with Carol Hahn
calling the numbers.
After having knee replacement
surgery, Viola Williams has now
been admitted to the Clarkson
Mt. View Health Care facility
where she will receive therapy.
Mary Contreras came on
Thursday from Arizona to visit
her dad, Bill Bielmaier, who met
her at the Rapid City airport. Her
husband, Gary, had not come as
he was still under doctor’s care
after having a heart procedure
done recently. Mary took a flight
back to Arizona on Sunday, but
with the delays it was really early
Monday morning.

not in never falling, but rising
every time we fall.”

Did you see the beautiful full
moon last week — think it was
Thursday or Friday? It looked es-
pecially big coming up in the east-
ern sky. It is officially autumn. We
are getting rain as I am writing
this on Monday. We’ll take it!
After the very hot day on Sunday,
it is followed by a much cooler
Monday. Guess that goes with the
saying — “if you don’t like the
weather, just wait a day!”

Although He was their Master, Jesus was not

help them, even if you do not know them.

You probably have thought
about what you’d like to do during
your retirement years. But all
your plans probably depend, to at
least some extent, on your finan-
cial situation. What happens if
you reach the age at which you
wish to retire and you just don’t
have the money you thought
you’d have?
If this occurs, it’s time for “Plan
B.” What does that look like?
Here are a couple of possibilities:
•Continue working. If you like
your job, you may not mind work-
ing an extra year or so. You’ll be
bringing in more income and con-
tributing more to your 401(k) or
other retirement account — and,
perhaps almost as importantly,
you may be able to avoid tapping
into these retirement accounts,
thus giving them more time to po-
tentially grow. (However, once
you turn 70½, you’ll need to begin
taking withdrawals from your
401(k) and a traditional IRA.) But
if you are really not enamored
with the idea of working any
longer, you might find that even
the ability to “beef up” your re-
tirement plans for another couple
of years isn’t much consolation.
•Adjust your retirement
lifestyle. It’s pretty simple: If you
don’t save as much as you had
planned for retirement, you prob-
ably can’t do all the things you
wanted to do as a retiree. For ex-
ample, you may not be able to
travel as much, or pursue your
hobbies to the extent you’d like.
Clearly, you’d like to avoid
these “retirement contingency
plans.” To do so, though, you’ll
need to take steps well before you
retire. And the most important
move you can make may be to
contribute as much as you can
possibly afford to your IRA and
your 401(k) or other employer-
sponsored retirement plan.
During the last several years
before you wish to retire, you may
be in a strong position to “max
out” on these plans because, at
this stage of your life, your in-
come may be at its highest point,
your children may be grown and
you may even have “retired” your
mortgage. If you still have money
left with which to invest, you may
want to look at other tax-advan-
taged vehicles that can be used
for retirement.
But while it’s important to put
in as much as possible to your re-
tirement accounts, you need to do
more than that — you also must
put the money in the right invest-
ments within these accounts.
Your exact investment mix should
be based on your individual risk
tolerance and time horizon, but,
as a general rule, these invest-
ments must provide you with the
growth potential you’ll need to ac-
cumulate sufficient resources for
Of course, as you know, invest-
ments move up and down. You
can’t prevent this, but you’ll cer-
tainly want to reduce the effects
of volatility as much as possible
when you enter retirement. Con-
sequently, during your final work-
ing years, you may need to adjust
your retirement accounts by shift-
ing some of your assets (though
certainly not all) from growth-ori-
ented vehicles to income-produc-
ing ones.
It’s a good idea to have contin-
gency plans in place for virtually
every endeavor in life — and pay-
ing for your retirement years is no
different. But if you can make the
right moves to avoid the contin-
gency plans in the first place,
then so much the better.
Close to 600 riders take part in Mickelson Trail Trek
According to state Division of
Parks and Recreation officials,
three days of sunshine helped
make last weekend's 16th annual
Mickelson Trail Trek a success.
"The beautiful Black Hills
scenery and fall colors help attract
riders each year," said Dana
Garry, Mickelson Trail manager.
"The ride went well, and we could-
n’t have asked for better weather.
We were excited to have 588 rid-
ers, of which 13 were returning for
their 16th year."
This year's event, held Sept. 20-
22, brought people to the Black
Hills from 29 states. Over the
three days, trekkers rode past sce-
nic Sheep Canyon and Crazy
Horse Monument, across the
Freedom Bridge south of Mystic
and into Lead-Deadwood on the
final leg of the trail.
"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.
"We would especially like to ac-
knowledge and thank the volun-
teers and the Chambers of Com-
merce 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 2014 Trail Trek scheduled for
Sept. 19-21. Online registration
should be available in December,
and Garry encourages riders to
sign up as early as possible to en-
sure a spot in the ride. The trek is
limited to 600 riders.

Mickelson Trail, visit www.Mick-
elsonTrail.com or contact the

Regular eye exams are crucial
to more than just good vision.
They can also aid in early detec-
tion of health problems, such as
diabetes, high cholesterol and
high blood pressure. This is possi-
ble because the eye is a unique
window into one’s overall health.
It’s the only place in the body
where, without surgery, medical
professionals can see blood ves-
sels, arteries and a cranial nerve.
During a comprehensive eye
exam, your eye care professional
will use drops to view the back of
your eyes to check for damage or
disease. There are several differ-
ent eye conditions and diseases
your eye doctor will be looking for
during an exam, including but not
limited to the following:
Diabetic Eye Disease: This
disease occurs when diabetes
damages the tiny blood vessels in-
side the retina. It is the most com-
mon cause of blindness.
Dry Eye: This occurs when the
eye does not produce tears prop-
erly. It can make it difficult to per-
form some activities, including
reading or using a computer for an
extended period of time.
Age-Related Macular Degen-
eration: AMD for people aged 50
and over in the U.S. has increased
by 25 percent over the last decade.
The disease causes dim images or
black holes at the center of vision.
AMD rarely causes complete
blindness, but there is currently
no cure.
While annual eye exams are
critical to your overall health rou-
tine, if you’re among the 50 mil-
lion households in the United
States without access to vision in-
surance, it’s tempting to forgo
when cost is an issue. For those
without vision insurance, the only
options were to work for an em-
ployer that offered vision cover-
age, pay out-of-pocket or simply go
Now, affordable individual and
family vision plans are available
directly to the consumer from VSP
Vision Care, the nation’s only not-
for-profit vision care company.
Through VSP Direct, VSP’s indi-
vidual vision insurance product,
consumers in every state can re-
ceive high-quality vision care.
These plans allow for individuals
and families to gain direct access
to the same high-quality vision
coverage many employers offer.
Even if you think your vision is
fine and your eyes are healthy, an
eye exam is the only way to be
sure. Individual plans from VSP
Direct cover eye exams with a low
co-payment. They also provide
fully covered lens options with al-
lowances for a wide selection of
glasses or contacts. To find out
more, visit www.vspdirectplans.
Annual eye exams are an impor-
tant part of your overall health
routine. Remember, vision care
isn’t just about seeing well – it’s
about being well.
Routine eye exams could save
more than your sight
No one wants to believe a house
fire could impact their family, but
house fires occur more often than
people think. According to the
NFPA, home fires kill an average
of seven people every day and
caused $11.6 billion in property
damage during 2010. One of the
most important tools in keeping
your family safe is a working fire
In a recent survey by Omnibus,
more than 50 percent of people re-
ported removing the batteries
from their home’s smoke alarms.
A working smoke alarm can make
all the difference in whether a
family has the critical time to es-
cape a home fire.
On average, families have less
than three minutes from the time
the first smoke alarm sounds to
escape a fire. That’s why it’s so im-
portant to keep a working smoke
alarm on every level of your home
and outside each sleeping area
and to have an escape plan in
place for your family.
Other essential home fire safety
guidelines include:
•Test alarms once a month.
•Keep extra Energizer batteries
on hand for fire alarms and carbon
monoxide detectors.
•Install a fire extinguisher in or
near kitchen.
•Keep flashlights with fresh
batteries at your bedside for help
in finding the way out and signal-
ing for help in the event of a fire.
•Develop and practice emer-
gency escape plan.
•Participate in the “Change
Your Clock Change Your Battery”
campaign. Each year when you
change your clocks for daylight
saving time, change the batteries
in your home’s smoke and carbon
monoxide detectors.
When you change your clocks
for daylight-saving time, change
the batteries in your smoke
alarms and carbon monoxide de-
tectors, and remind your friends,
family and neighbors to do the
same. To download your escape
grid or get more information, visit

Large trout stocked below
the Oahe Dam
The South Dakota Game, Fish
and Parks Department recently
stocked approximately 3,000 15-
20 inch rainbow and brown trout
in the Oahe Tailrace.
GFP Fisheries Biologist Robert
Hanten said the purpose of the
stocking is to evaluate if a fall
stock of larger trout will remain in
the tailrace area and be available
for anglers to catch throughout
the year.
“We hope stockings like this will
create an opportunity for large
trout to be stocked, grown and
caught as trophy trout in the fu-
ture,” Hanten said.
Oahe tailrace is located approx-
imately 5 miles northwest of
Pierre, below the Oahe Dam pow-

The Wall Eagles Football team
cruised to another big win over
Lyman, 65 to 20.
The score may look like it
wasn’t a game, but Lyman came
to play and caused some problems
for the Eagles.
Of the four games Wall has
played this season, Lyman defi-
nitely competed the best against
the Eagles!
They were big up front and had
some very good skilled players.
They spread Wall out defensively
and posed some problems for
them early. They passed 25 times
and completed eleven. They
caught Eagles off guard a few
times in the first half and got a
couple touchdowns over them.
Good players make good plays!
“We had pretty good coverage.
The ball was thrown well and the
receiver made great catches”. Al-
though they made some plays, the
Eagle defense rose to the occasion
many times ending their air raid
with four interceptions. Carson
Johnston had two while Trevor
Anderson and Lane Blasius each
had one.
At the end of the game, Travis
Brenner also recovered a Raider
With a 42 to 20 lead at half, the
Eagle defense was challenged to
shut down the Raider offense.
Shut down they did and didn’t
allow any points in the second
half. “We played very physical
and aggressive football!”
The Eagles defense allowed 279
yards of offense. Lyman had 116
passing and 163 rushing.
The Eagles reserves played the
fourth quarter and did a great job
scoring once and playing pretty
good defense to end the game.
The Eagles offense came out
and executed very well! The Ea-
gles varsity put points on the
board in nine of 10 possessions.
The only time they didn’t go
downfield and score was when
they tried something new.
Eight of the possessions re-
sulted in touchdowns while the
other was a 34 yard field goal by
Trevor Anderson.
The Eagles had 50 rushing
plays for 427 yards and completed
nine of 15 passes for 168 yards.
Wall ended the night with 595
yards of offense on 65 total plays.
“I cannot emphasize enough
what a great job our front line in
doing this year”. At the heart of
the O-line is Ridge Sandal, Les
Williams, and Clancy Lytle. On
the end of the line of scrimmage
is Tyler Peterson and Ben Linn.
The game is won or lost with
the line of scrimmage! These
young men are a big reason for
our offensive dominance so far
this season.
Johnston had a huge game! He
carried the ball 21 times for 163
yards and scored six touchdowns.
This gives him 15 rushing touch-
downs in four games. WOW!
Blasius completed eight passes
for 133 yards and caught one pass
from Anderson for 35 yards.
Anderson led the receivers with
95 yards on three catches and
scored once. He also ran nine
times for 129 yards.
Cade Kjerstad also ran with
dominance up the middle eight
times for 77 yards.
Freshman Carter Elshere
scored in the fourth quarter on a
six yard scamper.
We had great balance in the
run game between Johnston, An-
derson, and Kjerstad going inside,
outside and backside.
While Lyman was busy trying
to stop the run, Wall would hit
five different receivers in the pass
With the win, the Eagles move
to 4-0 on the season. The Eagles
head to Edgemont this week in
their only non-conference game of
the season.

course for experience.
Conference will be tight with
many good runners. The Wall
Squad is ready to step it up. Best
of luck guys!
Wall Cross Country team competes in
Custer Cross Country Invite
The Wall Boys ran well against
big school competition. There
were 15 schools that had a full
team. Custer won the meet with
43 points and Wall placed 12th
with 183 points.
Coach’s comments: Custer is
a meet with twists and turns, up
hills, down hills before finishing
on the flat.
The boys ran with determina-
tion. It was tough competition
which makes one run harder.
Placing 12th as a team against
AA and A schools was quite a feat
and only makes the squad better.

Wall split a pair of games at the
White River triangular over the
weekend, losing to Philip in five
sets and beating White River 3-1.
In the first game, White River
got off to an early lead and took
the first set 17-25 before Wall
came back and won 26-24, 25-19

Led by efforts from Monica and
Katy Bielmaier at the net, we
were able to battle back numer-
ous times from deficits and come
out with the win.
In the second game of the day,
Wall battled a five game match
with Philip.

The Wall Lady Eagles had their
first road game last Thursday,
September 19 as they traveled to

ent, although the Eagles were
able to take the game 3-0, win-
ning in straight sets 25-22, 25-18
and 25-16.
The girls were able to show true
team work and get all of our hit-
ters some great looks throughout
all three sets.
Carlee Johnston and Monica
Bielmaier tallied five and six kills
While Kaitlin Schreiber led all
servers, with two aces and served
93 percentage.

high rate of speed came through
the underpasses on the Badlands
road, jumped the curb at the
Mobil station, clipped a car, then

ditch and a driveway approach
which flipped the car, hitting a
light pole and through the hedge

An all-too-common occurrence
this summer once again struck
without mercy. On August 19, fire
crews were summoned to a grass
fire on the southern out-skirts of
Quinn. The Wolf Fire had started
due to a lightning strike on Buf-
falo Gap National Grassland’s
property. Fire crews from Wall,
Philip, Quinn, Wasta, New Un-
derwood, Box Elder and Rapid
Valley were on hand to combat
the blaze. The Forest Service pro-
vided two trucks and one hand
crew. Fast moving winds quickly
fanned the fire over the land. A
draw with many dead cottonwood
trees added to the intensity of the
300-acre fire. Fire Chief Jim Kit-
terman commented that Highway
14 prevented the fire from going
further north. Crews started at
4:30 p.m. to combat the fire and
eventually had it under control at
8:00 p.m. The cottonwood in the
draw took longer to burn, with
crews watching the wood for
flare-ups until about 12:00 a.m.

with Dr. James
Dr. Dobson Answers
your Questions
QUESTION: How does a seri-
ous illness affect a marriage? We
just learned my spouse has can-
cer, and we’re reeling. We have
the best possible medical care,
but there’s one important area in
which the doctors can’t help us:
What can we do to keep it from
harming our relationship?
ANSWER: Medical crises eas-
ily become emotional and spiri-
tual crises, and can present a se-
rious challenge to any marriage.
If you’re in the midst of a trial like
this, we suggest you prepare
yourselves for potential threats
by keeping the following thoughts
in mind.
First, though you already know
it intellectually, you need to re-
mind yourselves constantly that
everything is going to be different
now. So let go of your expecta-
tions. Maybe you had hopes of
being a “traditional” family in
which the husband is sole
provider and the wife and mother
is home full-time—only to see this
medical crisis change all that.
Your faith and your marital com-
mitment are likely to be tested as
well. Your response as a couple
will depend upon your willingness
to set aside your earlier hopes and
dreams and roll with the punches
of your present circumstances.
Another way to say this is that
you need to become adaptable.
You may have to learn new skills
in order to cope with the changes
brought on by your spouse’s med-
ical condition. This may include
everything from using a hypoder-
mic needle to trusting God in
ways you’ve never imagined be-
fore. Wives who never considered
themselves “career women” may
have to jump into the job market.
Husbands who were once afraid
to change a diaper may need to
become full-time childcare
providers. Whatever the details of
your situation, you can be sure of
one thing: a medical crisis re-
quires compromise and sacrifice
for the sake of the patient and
other family members.
As you navigate these difficult
waters, don’t forget to count your
blessings. Ask yourselves, “In the
midst of all that’s happened, what
can we be truly grateful for?” If
you look hard enough, you’ll dis-
cover that there’s always some-
thing. So make it your aim to find
new ways of enjoying life and
serving others together. Just
keeping your family together at a
time like this is an accomplish-
ment that can give you a deep
sense of satisfaction.
Meanwhile, difficult as it may
be to find the time, make an in-
tentional effort to nurture your
faith. Believe that God is in
charge and that He loves you no
matter what happens. This will
help provide the resolve you need
to endure what you’re forced to
accept. You may find that your
confidence in the Lord will grow
deeper and stronger as you wres-
tle with the implications of your
situation. Christians down
through the ages have testified
that a crisis is a good time to re-
veal and deal with doubts—not to
sweep them under the rug.
Finally, don’t be afraid to reach
out to others for help. There will
be many times during your med-
ical crisis when wise counsel and
prayer support from pastors and
friends will be a literal life-saver.
Sometimes your need will be as
simple as a meal or a listening
ear. At other times you may need
advice regarding medical or legal
decisions. Ask a friend to help you
"network" at church and in your
community to locate useful re-
sources. If you think it might be
helpful to spend some time with a
licensed Christian therapist, don’t
hesitate to give Focus on the
Family’s Counseling Department
a call. We can provide you with a
list of professionals practicing in
your area, and our staff coun-
selors would be more than happy
to discuss your situation with you
over the phone. They’re available
to speak with you Monday
through Friday between 6:00 a.m.
and 8:00 p.m. Mountain-time at
855-771-HELP (4357).
One last thought. Perhaps the
biggest challenge you’ll face is
that of finding some kind of
meaning in this medical crisis.
When you’re struggling with
doubts of this nature, you may
find some inspiration and encour-
agement in the words of Philippi-
ans 2:12-13: “Continue to work
out your salvation with fear and
trembling, for it is God who works
in you to will and to act according
to His good purpose.” Even a
seeming disaster can be used for
good and for the achieving of the
Lord’s ultimate purposes in our

but I want to be careful to respect
appropriate boundaries with my
son and daughter-in-law.
ANSWER: Perhaps the great-
est gift you have to offer is the gift
of your time. New parents need a
break every once in a while. This
is particularly important for sin-
gle moms, but it applies in the
case of married couples as well.
A baby who cries non-stop can
quickly bring both Mom and Dad
to the brink of utter exhaustion.
Take the initiative to ask how life
with the new arrival is going, and
in particular if there are any
problems with fussing and crying.
If you have time, energy and
child-rearing skills, offer to look
after the baby for a while. You
might suggest a specific time
(“How about if I come over tomor-
row or Wednesday night around
six so you can get out for a couple
of hours?”) rather than something
vague (“Let me know if I can
help”). Or you can give them an
open invitation to call you when-
ever they feel they’ve reached the
end of their rope.
As a grandparent, you can have
a profound impact on the lives
and outlook of your children and
grandchildren. Your ability to ap-
preciate and enjoy grandchildren
is probably much greater than
what you experienced with your
own kids, for several reasons.
Without the relentless “24/7-the-
buck-stops-here” duty required
during early parenthood, you will
have the luxury of greeting your
grandchildren with fresh delight
each time they walk through the
The value of the perspective
you’ve gained after raising your
own children cannot be over-
stated. Whether you realize it or
not, it’s an incredible gift to help
grown children see their offspring
through the eyes of a hopelessly
love-struck grandparent. When
grandparents regard little ones
with perpetual awe and wonder
rather than seeing them as a
source of non-stop responsibility,
they are unintentionally (but
quite happily) blessing two gener-
ations at once.
Speaking of blessing, grandpar-
ents also have an opportunity to
make a deep spiritual investment
in the lives of their children and
grandchildren. Perhaps when
your children were younger, your
faith was non-existent or imma-
ture. It’s not too late to have some
heart-to-heart conversations with
grown children about your faith
and its importance to you. You
might even surprise them by hav-
ing a candid conversation in
which you make amends for your
own shortcomings as a parent.
By the way, here’s an important
piece of advice about giving ad-
vice. If you are not in complete
agreement with the way your
grown children are raising your
grandchildren, be very careful
about the way you broach that
subject, especially with a daugh-
ter-in-law or son-in-law. Remem-
ber: as parents they have the final
say and responsibility for the way
their children are reared, and
your duty in nearly every situa-
tion is to abide by their decisions.
The exception, of course, is when
an irresponsible parent’s behavior
or neglect is exposing a child to
harm. Otherwise, offer advice
only if asked and work at building
a relationship in which you can
compare notes and share the ben-
efits of your parenting experience.

points at greater length with a

ment. Our counselors are avail-

for your college student this fall!!
First year or graduate student …
Your college-bound student will love getting news from home!!
It’s Almost Back-to-College Time …
Are you ready for another semester of hard work and fun?
use these helpful tips to make the most of the coming school year,
whether it’s your first or last!
• Don’t schedule classes back-to-back. You won’t be rushed, and you’ll have time after class to study.
• Get involved! If you didn’t last year, play a sport, join a club, or start one of your own.
• Have fun! A balance between work and play is the key to a good year.
• Take breaks while studying – 10 minutes for every hour is sufficient. Also, study in the daytime as much
as possible.
• Make and stick with a livable budget. Don’t forget to factor in little things like CDs and haircuts.
• Create open communication with your roommate(s) early on. Get to know each other’s personal values,
habits and expectations.

Have you ever gotten an idea? I
mean a really good one. Then,
when you shared that idea with
someone, the response was-well,
let's just say it wasn't so positive.
The person may have demeaned
your idea, or criticized it, or worse
yet, said, "What a dumb idea! It
will never work."
Ouch! Having someone put
down your ideas can be painful,
and if it happens often enough,
you may even be tempted to never
share any of your ideas with any
one again. But don't give into that
temptation. There are plenty of
people who have come up with
awesome ideas that at first were
thought by some to be sure to fail.
Be assured! Know that every-
thing starts with an idea and that
the creative power of thought is
one of the greatest powers on
earth. Just because some person's
response to your idea was not pos-
itive does not mean that it was a
bad idea at all. In fact it may be a
very good idea, or at least a good
idea in the making. No, a negative
response might just mean you
have to be more careful whom you
share your ideas with.
Let me explain. We live in a very
competitive society where scorn
and ridicule and put-downs are
often people's typical-even auto-
matic-response, especially with
those prone to jealousy. Some peo-
ple don't like any idea that is not
their idea and some simply lack
the proper attitude to see the pos-
sibilities. So whenever you have
an idea to share, you want to seek
out someone that you know to be
open to new things, who displays
an attitude of encouragement, by
saying something like, "That's an
I, myself, only share ideas with
people who I have trained to re-
spond with this phrase, "That's an
By the same token, I never want
to discourage others from sharing
their ideas with me, so when my
wife, children, friends and clients
share their ideas with me, I ini-
tially respond with this phrase,
"That's an idea!" This shows that I
am open. It shows that I am listen-
ing. It demonstrates that I am
open for more ideas.
Now just because one responds
to ideas with, "That's an idea!"
does not mean you think the idea
should be acted on or even that
you believe the idea is a good one.
It simply is a means to communi-
cate to the idea-bearer an attitude
that says, "I applaud you and af-
firm you in your creative think-
ing." If an idea has merit, you can
then help the person to flesh it out,
by asking questions and offering
suggestions to improve upon the
idea, in a way that inspires and
encourages the person.
Even if the idea seems to have
little or no merit to you, you never
want to shoot people and their
ideas down, because it may hold
them back from sharing future
ideas that may turn out to be re-
ally great.
Make it a point to really listen to
other people's ideas and respond to
every one of them in a way that
will allow the person to walk away
from the conversation feeling en-
couraged and valued as a person
who is capable of having great
ideas. Now that's an idea!
That’s An Idea
The Eagles Youth Football Teams had a great showing this week at home in Wall. The teams played the
Vikings from Rapid City. In the Mighty Mite division, the Eagles, again, shut out their opponent, 35-0.
In the Junior PeeWee division, they won a "dog fight" beating the Vikings 30-22. The PeeWee division
game was also won by the Eagles, 34-6. Next weeks game will be against the Spearfish Buccaneers at
the Black Hills State University Field in Spearfish. Pictured is the PeeWee team running an offensive
play with Zach Hout of Wall, taking the ball up the middle with a lead blocker, Bridger Amiotte.
