Robert R. Young
Union Center, S.D.
Spouse: Susie, Children:
Brenda, Robby, Matthew
Bob was raised on the ranch
where he and his family live, and
grew up knowing you had to BE a
neighbor and work together in
order to survive on the plains of
Meade County, S.D.
His parents showed him by ex-
ample how to help and care for
others. There has never been a
time when Bob would not lend a
helping hand to a neighbor in
need. In the large electrical out-
ages he would volunteer his equip-
ment and the manpower to get the
power back on and running.
Bob has been a faithful and will-
ing helper involving church proj-
ects, and for the past three years
he has assumed the responsibility
of heating the Stoneville Church
during the winter months. When
there was snow, he also used his
own equipment to clear the park-
ing lot.
Bob has been manager of the
Young Ranch for the past twelve
years. The ranch has been in the
Young Family since 1908.
Bob is the fourth generation to
hold that position. Bob and Susie's
boys are the fifth generation to
proudly work on the family ranch.
Bob proudly served in the Na-
tional Guard of South Dakota for
eight years. He has also been an
active director of First Interstate
Bank for the past two years.
Bob has had an active part in
the Enning Volunteer Fire Depart-
ment for the past 35 years, the last
six years as Fire Chief.
Bob was a 4-H leader for 18
years with the Jr. Stockgrowers
and Busy Stitchers 4-H Club of
Stoneville. Bob and Susie held
judging schools at their ranch for
five years. They also served on the
Meade County Extension Board
for nine years.
I (Harold Delbridge) have
worked for this family and have
night-calved for them for 14 years.
I have always been welcome in
their home, as is anyone else who
happens to stop by.
Robert Young and his family are
true neighbors.

Michael West started his teach-

ers' Garage.
In the late 80's the Garage
changed hands and Michael went
back into the school system where
he taught and coached.
He spent many years coaching
all the sports in the Philip School

Marcia West
Philip, S.D.
Marcia was a school counselor,
taught basic education and physi-
cal education. She dedicated her
life to teaching where she was an
amazing influence on her students
for 40 years, all in the Philip
School System.
Marcia was honored by being in-
ducted into the Philip High School
Hall of Fame, SDHSAA Distin-
guished Service Award, and BHSU
Outstanding Educator Award.
Marcia and Michael were nomi-
nated to receive the “Good Neigh-
bor” Award because they are huge
supporters and promoters of the
people who live in and around
Philip where they are involved in
the local organizations.
They are faithful members of the
First Lutheran Church of Philip,
and have held all the offices of the
Church Council, as well as being in
charge of the Women's Group, the
Youth Group, Alter Guild and Ush-
Her husband, Michael, is the
head of the AARP Group in Philip.
He and Marcia established the
'Old Schoolhouse Park' and main-
tain it through the AARP Group.
They got the Lasting Legacy
Monument built, which they also
Marcia heads up the Retired
Teachers and both she and
Michael are past officers of the
Chamber of Commerce.
They chair the Cancer Support
Group and Relay For Life.
They are members of the Wall
Food Pantry and help with distri-
Wayne Davis
Wall, S.D.
Wayne is lucky that he is a big
man, because he has such a big
heart. His heart would not fit in a
normal-size chest.
Wayne is always willing to come
to someone’s aid if needed. Over
the years he has accumulated vast
assortment of tools and is always
letting people borrow them when
needed. In my personal experi-
ence, Wayne has brought over his
lawn aerator, plugger and sweeper
so we can ready our lawn for the
summer. We don't even have to
ask. When the time is right they
show up in our yard.
One time Wayne was talking to
a young couple and they were
wanting to build a deck onto their
house. The next morning Wayne
was there early to start the
process. This is typical of what
Wayne does for his neighbors.
Wayne is well known not just in
the Wall area, but also in the sur-
rounding communities. Having
worked for GWTC for 34 years be-
fore retiring, Wayne has made
friends wherever he has been.
Wayne is always looking out for
his neighbors. If someone is gone
for a while he will check on their
property to see if everything is
okay. I know if we are gone our
place will be well taken care of.
Wayne has been the Wall
Methodist Church's chair of the
Trustee's Committee twice. He is
currently serving in that position.
Both times a major project needed
to be done. Both times Wayne has
gone out into the community to
raise money for said projects.
Without his leadership these proj-
ects would not have been com-
pleted in a timely fashion.
Wayne is a standing member of
the Wall United Methodist Men's
Organization where he has helped
in a variety of different projects.
You just know that he is going to
be there.
Wayne has also been the Youth
Leader for the Wall United
Methodist Church. He made sure
that in the winter months the
youth group would do something
special every four weeks. This in-
cluded things like going skiing in
the Hills or swimming at Evans
Plunge in Hot Springs.
As I stated earlier, Wayne
worked for Golden West for 34
years. He is now retired along with
his wife, Gwen. During his tenure
at GWTC Wayne attended count-
less seminars and classes to stay
current with the ever-changing
and expanding technologies that
are at the forefront of the telecom-
munication industry.
Wayne has been involved with
many different organizations.
Most of them involved the youth,
but not all. Here is a list of some of
those groups: Cub Scout leader,
Webelos leader, Boy Scout leader,
Girls Scout helper, 4-H helper,
Youth wrestling, Youth softball,
Youth rodeo. He brought back the
SDRA Rodeo to the Wall Celebra-
tion after years of not having a
rodeo. He held the positions of
President, Vice President and Sec-
retary of the Wall Rodeo Associa-
Wayne is one of those individu-
als that makes a community suc-
cessful and progressing in a posi-
tive direction. The Wall Commu-
nity as well as those surrounding
communities are far better off for
having Wayne and his big heart a
part of them. Wayne was nomi-
nated by Gale Patterson.
2013 WHS Prom King and Queen
bution to people in need in the
Philip area.
Michael is a member of the
Haaken Co. Crooners. This group
raises enough money to gift a
yearly scholarship.
This long list of accomplish-
ments has inspired Linda Eisen-
braun to nominate both Michael
and Marcia as individual recipi-
ents as Good Neighbors and gener-
ous givers.

Farm families that have enjoyed
100 or 125 years of life on the farm
or ranch have the opportunity to
be honored during the South
Dakota State Fair on August 29th.
Farms and ranches have long
been the foundation of South
Dakota history. Many of these
farms and ranches have been the
same families for many years. The
South Dakota Farm Bureau along
with the South Dakota Depart-
ment of Agriculture would like to
recognize and honor these South
Dakota Century Farms
If your family has retained own-
ership of a farm or ranch for 100
years or more in South Dakota,
and if the farm consists of a mini-
mum of 80 acres of the original
farmland, you may be qualified in
having your farm or ranch honored
as a Century Farm.

26th Annual State Convention of
the South Dakota Student Council
Association (SDSCA) which was
held in Pierre, SD on March 24-26,
The SDSCA Convention in-
cluded 745 students and advisors
from 60 high schools across the
“It is so exciting to see this event
grow bigger and bigger every
year”, said Gary Linn, SDSCA Ex-
ecutive Director. “To know that
student leaders are excited about
becoming stronger leaders in their
schools, communities and in their
adult lives.
This is a very rewarding feeling
for us that work with these stu-
dents on a daily basis. It is a great
way for students, advisors and
councils to network with each
other and learn what other schools
are doing.”
Ryder Wilson, SDSCA State
President, said, “This event is
something that can change lives.
The jammed packed weekend is
filled with inspiring speakers, stu-
dent-lead workshops, and team-
building activities.
The convention is a positive en-
vironment with kids who want to
make a difference in their schools,
community, and state. This shows
promise for our future.”
The South Dakota Student
Council Association, which is co-
sponsored by the South Dakota
High School Activities Association
and the South Dakota Secondary
School Principals Association, of-
fers an opportunity for student
council members to exercise and
enhance their leadership skills.
Focusing on the theme “Tune
into Leadership”, the SDSCA Con-
vention utilized a combination of
breakout sessions and large group
instructional presentations by two
guest speakers, which focused on
different aspects of leadership.
The opening keynote presenta-
tion on Sunday evening was pre-
sented by Rashaan Davis from
Colorado who teaches student
leaders how to build a program
based on trust, accountability and
He also talked with advisors
about program strategies they can
implement immediately, and he

challenged thousands of teens
across America to write their own
live-better stories.
He claims he got his start in
speaking by being the Chair of the
Assemblies Committee for his high
school student council. Even
though Kyle is funny, he presents
his speeches in a way that reaches
out and connects with youth.

The Convention activities in-
cluded the annual business meet-
ing of the SDSCA and the election
of the Association’s 2013-2014
state officers, as well as the elec-
tion of the officers for each of the
Association’s seven regions.
Austin Huether, a sophomore
from Wall High School, was elected
as the President of the Rushmore
Region for the 2013-2014 school
Cash Wilson, a sixth grader
from Wall Middle School, was
elected as the Vice President of the
SDSCA Middle School Board for
the 2013-2014 school year. This is
a two-year term, with Cash becom-
ing the SDSCA Middle School
President for the 2014-2015 school
An inspirational moment during
the State Convention occurred as
part of the Closing General Ses-
sion when the student councils
presented their checks for money
raised as part of the SDSCA
Statewide Spring "Children’s Mir-
acle Network" project. By tradition
the SDSCA spring fundraising
project is focused on the theme of
"Kids Helping Other Kids". Stu-
dent Councils giving money to a
project such as Children’s Miracle
Network, epitomizes the "Kids
Helping Other Kids" philosophy.

By Coach Karol Patterson
Here we go! The weather was
beautiful, no wind for the day, and
the Wall Squad was ready to run.
On Tuesday, April 2, the team
traveled to Douglas for the first
meet of the year.
Tyler Peterson (Junior), a
jumper, launched a 40” 8.75” leap
to win the triple jump and also
topped it off by pre-qualifying for
the state track meet.
The boys 100M dash was a photo
finish race with Tyler Trask (Se-
nior) placing second in 11.59
against Aidan Goetzinger from
STM, who won in 11.58. Right be-
hind Trask was Danny Muzik
(Sophomore) blazing for third and
Nathan Patterson (Senior) placing
fifth to round out the medal win-
ners. There were 46 runners in
this event.
The 4x100, 4x200 and 4x400 Re-
lays all placed second with a close
photo finish again in the 4x200 by
Trask to out lean the Douglas run-
ner. What a run!
Then the 4x400 race was a “we
can do this” determination race
with Danny Muzik (Sophomore)
anchoring a well run race.
Austin Huether place third in
the 3200 and 800 for the day.
The highlights for the ladies’
squad was Maddi Bauer (Senior)
placing sixth in the pole vault.
This is the first time Wall has ever
had a lady pole vaulter since girls
track was started in 1969-70. She
cleared 7’ 6” to start the season.
Autumn Schulz (Senior) placed
second in the shot put and discus.
Then Tayah Huether (Sopho-
more) ran strong placing sixth in
the 400 and fourth in the 800M
Also the 4x200 relay finished
fifth with T. Huether anchoring.
Coach’s comments: It was nice
to get a meet in and see where we
are performance wise.
The weather was great, some
sunburns, and first meet nerves
were the norm.
I was pleased with the determi-
nation of every athlete.
Congratulation to Peterson for
qualifying for state. That was icing
on the cake.
Plus it has been a learning expe-
rience to have a first time pole
vaulter for this coach. Bauer has a
lot of determination and is a joy to

It looks like we are finally
going to get some much needed
moisture. Just how much still re-
mains to be seen.
The Philip Wilson’s had a busy
week last week. Beth and David
Laschinger from Coon Rapids,
Minn., spent Easter weekend
with them, leaving for home on
Monday. On Monday, Amy, Mary,
Sam and Emma Wolberg of Eden
Prairie, Minn., and Darrell and
Norma Harer of Hoven, S.D. ar-
rived to visit during the week.
Darrell and Norma left on
Wednesday and Amy and the
kids headed back home on Satur-
day. The weather was good for all
of their travels. They all had fun
four-wheeling, riding horses and
rock hunting. Those seem to be
the usual activities when the
grandkids come to the country to
Dan Korn of Cashton, Wis.,
was a weekend guest of Tom and
Shelia Trask’s. Besides lots of
visiting, the guys worked on
tractors and calving. Saturday,
Tom and Shelia went to the Karp
auction. Tomilyn Trask and her
friend Laura passed thru on
Thursday on their way to Brook-
ings for the weekend. They also
stopped back in on their way
back home to Chadron. Seems
like it was also a convenient
laundry stop! Sunday afternoon
visitors at the Trask’s were Tyler
Wilson, Joe Trask, Andy and Ben
Linn and Morris Linn. It was a
beautiful afternoon to work with
some horses.
Laken Linn spent the day on
Tuesday at the Gravatt’s and
had a fun play day. Peggy and
Maria Trask are practicing for
Maria’s events in the Special
Olympics, which is coming up on
April 26th in Rapid City. Peggy
and Larry went to Karp’s auction
on Saturday then went in to
Rapid to run some errands. On
Sunday, Peggy picked up grand-
daughter Sarah Erickson in
Rapid City, then they went to the
Kids Fair at the Civic Center.
Brad Bookbinder, Jes Harstad
and boys met them there and a
fun time was had by all. Sarah
will be staying with Grandma
and Grandpa till Thursday. She
loves to help Grandpa with the
chores and do crafts with
News seems a little slow this
week, but I’m sure many are
busy calving.
As I get ready to send this I see
that we are pretty much snowed
in, but not complaining!
Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by
Lloyd & Margee Willey
We are seeing more cacti in
bloom in our backyard “Beaver-
tail” is showing off with bright
fuchsia, waxy and delicate looking
blossoms and the palo-verde trees
are sharing branches with leaf
buds and flower buds seemingly at
the same time. These trees are sort
of like the old “Ugly Duckling”
story only in tree version. Trunk
and main branches are green and
look like someone has glued green
tooth-picks all over the branches.
Upon closer inspection at this time
of year, tiny buds are appearing
which become tiny leaves and tiny
yellow flowers. The leaves stay
small, rather like a locust or moun-
tain ash, and tiny yellow flowers
become small yellow flowers and
as if by magic wand, “Ugly Duck-
ling Tree” becomes a beautiful and
welcome shade tree! I wanted to
write that French word that
means super transformation, but
couldn’t spell it and my dictionary
for elementary school students
didn’t have it, but it’s rather like
Today (Thursday) is great-
grandson Skyler’s baseball game
in Buckeye. Plenty of opportunity
to view and take note of what’s
blooming and what is not on the 70
mile drive on I-8 west.
Skyler so enjoys playing base-
ball and is quite good at it, bearing
in mind I am a grandmother so my
view is a little biased. He likes his
coaches and team and I mostly
enjoy that he enjoys and that it is
still fun.
As there has been no report oth-
erwise I’m still smiling and think-
ing what a fun thing Wasta’s
Easter egg hunt is. I miss that!
And I appreciate all of you who
took over so capably.
Friends, flowers (and critters
who eat them) birds, babies, bun-
nies and eggs, sunrise and still-
ness, goodbyes and great years
and life’s lessons are thoughts that
are whirling through my mind tak-
ing possession for a moment and
rolling quickly to the next. Rather
like watching a desert “Dust Devil”
that is so present and before your
mind fully grasps what words
could describe the vision, it’s gone.
Anna Lee Humphrey passed
away Friday, March 29th. Known
as Good Friday. I was thinking
about Anna Lee that day because
it was egg decoration in prepara-
tion for the “Wasta Easter Egg
Hunt”. Saturday morning we
would gather to hide the eggs.
Never knowing how many kids
would show up and relying on our
“South Dakota Hospitality” men-
tality we would always have boiled
and decorated, filled plastic eggs
with candy in generous abun-
dance! Anna Lee participated
cheerfully in every step until two
years ago when she asked grand-
daughter, Katy Humphrey, to fill
in as hider. Anna Lee supervised
from their front porch. It all
worked because we all enjoyed,
start to finish, so many of the proj-
ects undertaken with Ann Lee.
Each of us who cared for her will
have a special and favorite mem-
ory. In the lifetime “scheme of
things”, I knew Anna Lee a mere
hour or two. However, I am grate-
ful to have had that hour or two, to
have known a women with old
fashioned values and ethics, car-
ing, courage and determination.
I’m grateful she was in my life and
I’m grateful I told her so.
To all her family and loved ones,
our thoughts are with you and our
sorrow shared.
Happy Trails.

Congratulations go out to Rachel
and Darin Bahmann, who have a
new daughter, Chessa Char, born
Saturday, April 6, at 9:24 p.m.; 7
lbs. 1.6 oz. 19 inches, at Rapid City
Regional Hospital. She is wel-
comed by older sister, Bria (almost
six years old) and older brother,
Breckin, three years old. Proud
grandparents are Becky and Roger
Buhmann, Rapid City, and Char-
lene and Clayton Kjerstad.
Two of Edith Paulsen’s great-
grandsons did very well in the
State AAU Wrestling Competition
at Brookings, March 23rd and
24th. Hunter Peterson placed sec-
ond in his class and his brother
McCoy got first in his devision.
Way to go guys!
Janis Bush went to the Rapid
City Regional Hospital on Friday,
March 29th; was released on
Wednesday to enter the Good
Samaritan Home in New Under-
wood. Kurth and Sherry DeLand
were here last week to be with her
and help with the transition.
Lorna Moore took Norma Volz to
Rapid City on Friday. Norma had
back surgery a while ago and now
is doing therapy.
Tommi Cheney had been the
manager of the East Pennington
County Conservation District of-
fice but had to resign for personal
reasons. Lesa Stephens is now the
new office manager of the District.
The Senior Citizen Potluck sup-
per will be on the evening of the
18th. See you there.
Several birthdays happened to
fall on Sunday. I heard at coffee
that Van Simpfenderfer was one of
them; Stan Mettler, another and
Wanda Goodrich (Ivan Eisen-
braun’s sister so he says, “Happy
Birthday”, to her). Marsa Walker
had a birthday on Saturday, the
6th. Happy Birthday to all of them.
Lillian Horton is still in the
“swing bed” section of the Philip
Hospital. She was out to the ranch
to spend Easter with her family.
Obituaries in last week’s paper
included Anna Lee Humphrey,
Nicholas Koenigs and Delores
Miller. We extend our sympathy to
their families and friends.
Steven Doyle, Susan Spent and
family of Rapid City, had lunch on
Sunday at Merlin and Mary Jane
Carla Brucklacher drove to
Greeley, Colo., Thursday, March
28, to visit son, Matthew and fam-
ily. She took birthday gifts for
granddaughter Maylin, who
turned 12 on St. Patrick’s day.
Maylin and Alissa posed for their
annual spring photo shoot; we
went to movies, shopping, and had
a girl’s day out - lunch in Loveland.
We spent Easter Sunday at the
Tom and Lenea Tanner home in
Windsor. Grandma got talked into
staying two extra days to attend
Maylin’s first ever middle school
track meet. She did long-jump, 100
and 200 dash and a relay. It sure
is hard to video tape through a
chain link fence but we did our
best. Carla returned home on
Thursday, April 4.
Lori Bauer from Aberdeen, came
to spend the weekend. She and her
mom, Arla Olson, celebrated their
birthdays and enjoyed the prom.
Congratulations to Prom Roy-
alty — King Lane Hustead and
Queen Bailey Lytle!
Edith Paulsen returned home on
Friday evening after a vacation in
the warm, sunny southwestern
states. She had gone to Phoenix
and visited Norbert and Jane Se-
bade and to Las Vegas visiting her
son, Kevin and Terry Paulsen. She
even celebrated her birthday while
she was gone. If we get snow, she
said she’ll take the blame as it usu-
ally happens when she returns
home. Welcome home, Edith.
There is a storm watch for our
part of the country — snow and
blow. It might be what we have
been wishing for but some of the
ranchers may have baby lambs,
calves, etc. to care for. We’ll hope
for the best.
Have a good week.

Life is full of ups and downs —
and the financial markets are no
different. As an investor, you’re no
doubt happy to see the “ups” — but
the “downs” can seem like a real
downer. Isn’t there any way to help
smooth out the volatility in your
investment portfolio?
First of all, to cope with volatil-
ity, it’s helpful to know what
causes it — and there can be many
causes. Computers that make
trades in milliseconds, based on
mathematical models, are some-
times blamed for intraday volatil-
ity, but large price swings can also
occur following the release of gov-
ernment economic reports, such as
those dealing with unemployment
and housing starts. Global events,
such as the European economic
malaise, can also send the finan-
cial markets into a tizzy.
By being aware of the impact of
these events, you can see that the
workings of the markets — espe-
cially their volatility — may not be
as mysterious as you thought.
Still, while knowing the causes of
volatility can help you prepare for
market swings, it won’t blunt their
impact on your portfolio. To do
that, you need to create a diversi-
fied mix of investments because
your portfolio can be more suscep-
tible to negative price movements
if you only own one type of asset.
To illustrate: If you owned
mostly bonds, and interest rates
rose sharply, the value of your
bonds would likely drop, and your
portfolio could take a big hit. But
if you owned stocks, bonds, govern-
ment securities, certificates of de-
posit (CDs) and other investment
vehicles, the rise in interest rates
would probably affect your portfo-
lio less significantly.
Unfortunately, many investors
think that if they own a few stocks
and a bond, they’re diversified. But
you can actually extend your di-
versification through many levels
— and you should. For the equity
portion of your portfolio, try to own
stocks representing many market
sectors and industries. Also, con-
sider international stocks. And
rather than just owning U.S.
Treasury bonds, consider corporate
bonds and municipal bonds, and
diversify your fixed-income hold-
ings further by purchasing short-
term, intermediate-term and long-
term bonds. Work with your finan-
cial advisor to determine the mix
of asset classes and investments
that are appropriate for your fi-
nancial goals and objectives.
How you ultimately diversify
your portfolio depends on your risk
tolerance, time horizon and long-
term goals — there’s no one “cor-
rect” asset mix for everyone. And
over time, your diversification
needs may change. To cite one ex-
ample, as you enter your retire-
ment years, you may need to in-
crease your percentage of income-
producing investments while pos-
sibly reducing the amount of
growth investments you own.
These growth-oriented invest-
ments tend to be more volatile,
and you may want less volatility
during your retirement. However,
even during retirement, you will
need to own a certain percentage
of growth investments to provide
you with the growth potential
you’ll need to stay ahead of infla-
Keep in mind that diversifica-
tion can’t guarantee a profit or pro-
tect against loss. Nonetheless,
building a diversified portfolio may
help take some of the volatility out
of investing — so look for diversi-
fication opportunities whenever

Posted By Pastor Cornelius R. Stam
Just behind me, in the supermarket check-out line,
were two little boys. I noticed that the older one kept
looking up at me and then down at his brother again
several times in succession. Finally, nudging his little
brother and pointing up at me, he said: “Hey, Joey, look
how little you are!”
Those who have seen me in the flesh know that I am
not exactly small, physically, and I can easily imagine
that, standing next to these little fellows, I made them
look small indeed!
But all this pertained only to the physical, and as I left
that supermarket, I began asking myself: “How big are
you, actually, in the sight of God?” I thought of Psalm
8:3,4, where David mused over the same question:
“When I consider Thy heavens, the work of
Thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which
Thou hast ordained; what is man that Thou art
mindful of Him…?”
Yet we are so important to the heart of God that He
entered the stream of humanity, as it were, and became
one of us in Christ, Son of God and Son of Man. Why?
Hebrews 2:14,15 gives us one important reason:
“…that through death [His death for our sins]
He might destroy him that had the power of
death, that is the devil, and deliver those who
through fear of death were all their lifetime sub-
ject to bondage.”
Moreover, insignificant as we are in ourselves, He
would use us mightily to His glory for, according to I Cor.
1:27,28, He has “chosen” the “foolish,” the “weak,” the
“base,” the “despised,” and those who “are not” to ac-
complish His purposes and to bring to naught the plans
of the world’s great ones.

Colonel L. A. Pick of Omaha, di-

ment, has recommended to the
chief of engineers that construc-
tion of a timber bridge near Inte-
rior, S.D., to replace one washed
out by floods least year, be certified
as “essential”, Representative
Case (R-SD) says. Case said that
because of the washed out bridge,
and the further fact that a road
south of Scenic, S.D., has been
closed off in setting up the Rapid
City army air base gunnery range,
persons going 30 to 40 miles nor-
mally now have to travel at 150 to
160 miles instead. Case said he
has been conferring with war de-
partment officials since last fall to
obtain a certification for construc-

explain the cost and the advan-
tages of better street lighting sys-

sight-seeing travelers. Souvenirs

The first Minuteman ICBM ar-
rived at the site three miles east of
Wall and was lowered into its un-
derground silo, Thursday, April 4.
The missile was transported by
rail from Hills AFB, Ogden, Utah,
and arrived at Ellsworth, Tuesday.
This missile — the first of 150
which will eventually be housed in
western South Dakota — was em-
placed near Wall. This transporter-
erector, largest vehicle of its kind
ever designed for highway travel,
is used to transport the Minute-
man to and from its underground
launch sites. At the site, the trailer
is raised hydraulically placing the
solid-fueled ICBM inside its
launching silo.
A fire early Thursday morning
destroyed the trailer house of the
Jack DeWitt family — a Minute-
man Missile worker who has lived
here since last November. The fire
apparently started from a short in
the electrical wiring, about 1:45
a.m. The smoke awakened the
husband who quickly roused the
family and took the three children
to a neighboring trailer home
while Mrs. DeWitt called the oper-
ator to report the fire as the blaze
threatened to cut off her exit route.
The Wall firemen were unable to
save anything of the trailer or con-
tents. The trailer belonged to Bob

when a burning tire came off a
truck, rolled off the road and
started the grass on fire.

Last week the Wall city council
joined the burgeoning beautifica-
tion chorus with a $30,000 pledge,
this to a project that one month
ago was barely a twinkle in any-
one’s eye and yet today has in ex-
cess of $40,000 pledged with a po-
tential long-term budget expected
to exceed $100,000. The city appro-
priated $80,000 for South
Blvd. improvements last year,
spent $37,000, leaving $43,000.

last week to pledge $30,000 of the
$43,000 for the proposed Wall
Beautification project. Members of
the Wall Beautification Commis-
sion include: Becky Drury, Joan
Renner, Jim Kjerstad, Thor Saut-
ter, Kari Welsh, Charon Geigle,
Norbert Sebade, Ann Kitterman,

Over the last 25 years, or more, in
business there has been one lesson
that I have learned over and over. I
have identified the one common
thread that has literally driven my
business success, and I am sharing it
with you today. As you will see, it's re-
ally quite a simple strategy.
Whenever I have a customer or
client-no matter how big or small, my
mission is always to treat them as if
they were my only customer, by fo-
cusing all my energies on them, to-
tally and completely. (Of course, my
clients all know that I have other
clients, but I know they appreciate
the special treatment that I give
Treating the customer like he or
she is the "only" one is really not a
hard thing to do when you truly care
for the success of that customer.
When you care enough to really get
to know your clients, you will go the
extra mile to assure that they are to-
tally satisfied with your products and
services. When you care enough to
autograph your work with excellence,
you will provide your customers with
the quality they desire. When you
care enough to treat your clients with
the respect they deserve, you will
give them nothing less than your
complete attention.
This attitude and mind-set, of
course, requires planning, and cre-
ative thinking, solid decision-making,
problem solving, and good old-fash-
ioned hard work-something that
every one of us is so very capable of
doing. But it is definitely worth the
extra effort.
Your customers and clients will
find your attitude very refreshing, in
a day and age when the negative at-
titudes of others have left them
empty and dry. You can be the one to
fill up your client's "empty bucket" by
simply affirming that there is noth-
ing more important to you right now
than doing what you can to meet his
or her needs.
Though our attitude should never
be to give just so we can get some-
thing in return, you know that it will
all come back to you in one way or an-
other. Caring about others almost al-
ways guarantee that your own
bucket will never run dry.
So I encourage you to go forth this
week, with the intent of filling up lots
of buckets. Really care about others
by treating each and every customer
or client you encounter as if they're
the only one.
The Only One!
