SBA Guarantees Over $28 Million in 7(a) Loans in South Dakota. The SBA South Dakota District Office announced recently the top performing lenders based on total 7(a) loan approvals and dollar value for the first nine months of FY 12, ending June 30, 2012. In South Dakota, the top three banks for the number of approved loans are Black Hills FCU, 20 loans for $1.57 million, Wells Fargo, 17 loans for $2.98; and Great Western Bank 16 loans for $1.67 million. As of June 30, 2012, 114 total SBA 7(a) loans have been approved in South Dakota for $28.4 million. “Over the last couple of years SBA has worked with lenders on identifying new ways to provide access to capital to small businesses across South Dakota”, said John Brown II, SBA District Director. “This year, we have reached out to new lenders in more counties to promote our simplified loan programs and to encourage a sustained working relationship with the SBA.” Since January 2011, SBA has been approving guaranteed loans
at a steadily growing pre-recession pace, in dollar terms. This has continued in each of the first three quarters of FY 2012. Each quarter has produced more loans and more dollars loaned than the previous quarter. In the quarter just completed last week, we’ve averaged 1,120 loan approvals and more than $450 million per week nationally. Overall, the pace of SBA loanmaking is a healthy sign for the economy and the credit markets and is one of the foundations for the infrastructure necessary to deliver financing to small businesses trying to establish themselves and create new jobs for Americans. “While many of our competitors focus on dollar volume, Black Hills Federal Credit Union here in Rapid City continues to emphasize service to our business members, said Kevin Tiede, Business Loan Manager, Black Hills Federal Credit Union. “The direct result is we continue to see more small to medium size businesses come to us with their lending needs. As the demand for our loan products continues to grow, so does the need for
Josh Brainard has taken over Eastern Pennington and Haakon counties as the new conservation officer. He replaced Jamin Hartland, who joined the Pennington County Sheriff’s Department. Brainard has been with Game, Fish and Parks for the past 12 years. He has served across the state and worked as a supervisor in the Rapid City area for the past four years. Brainard said, “I enjoyed being a supervisor but is excited to be back out in the field.” Brainard will take over Haakon County until a new officer is assigned for that area. Brainard is originally from the Kimball area and graduated from South Dakota State University in Brookings with a degree in wildlife fisheries. He and his wife, Sara, live in Rapid City and have two dogs. ~Photo Laurie Hindman
Scoping period extended for proposed Cain Creek land exchange
Following requests from the public, officials of the Nebraska National Forests and Grasslands, (NNFG) will allow an additional 30 days of public scoping, prior to initiating analysis of environmental issues for the proposed Cain Creek Land Exchange. The proposed land exchange is between The Nature Conservancy, a Not for Profit Corporation and the Forest Service, with goals to consolidate land ownership where private and National Forest System (NFS) lands are intermixed, and to acquire black footed ferret habitat in the Conata Basin. Federal land parcels proposed for exchange lie on the Buffalo Gap National Grassland between Hots Springs and Kadoka. All legal descriptions reference the Black Hills Meridian and lie in Fall River, Pennington, and Jackson Counties of South Dakota. “In the interests of continuing our collaborative efforts in the management of the Conata Basin, and working with all partners and stakeholders, I will allow 30 additional days of public comments before we begin our analysis of the environmental issues. Comments will be most useful if received by August 30, 2012,” said Steve Lenzo, Deputy Forest Supervisor for the NNFG. Scoping is done early, and is an open process to identify significant issues related to a proposed action. The scoping period is intended to request initial public comments to help identify the scope of issues to be studied in an environmental analysis of the proposal, to recommend alternatives, and offer mitigation measures. When the Draft Environmental Analysis and decision is released, the public will have an additional 30 days to comment before a final decision is issued. The Scoping Letter and associated maps are available at: http://www.fs.usda.gov/detail/nebraska/landmanagement/?cid=ST ELPRDB5375139 Please address written comments to: Nebraska National Forest and Grasslands Attn: Cindy Hockelberg 125 North Main Street Chadron, NE 69337 Fax: 308-432-0309 Comments may also be submitted by e-mail to: comments-rockymountain-nebraska@fs.fed.us and write “Cain Creek Land Exchange” in the subject line.

Local student returns from summer in Japan
Pennington County drought disaster declaration
Analise Garland, a senior at Wall High School in Wall, South Dakota recently returned from a six-week stay in Tokyo, Japan, where she lived with a Japanese family. Analise was one of 14 members of Family, Career and Community Leaders of America (FCCLA), chosen as a recipient of the 2012 Japanese Exchange Scholarship. Since 1979, Kikkoman Corporation of Japan has funded this program in cooperation with youth for understanding USA. FCCLA and Kikkoman Corporation encourage individual and group involvement in helping to achieve global cooperation and harmony. Together they provide this scholarship opportunity for FCCLA members. Miss Garland started her trip with a three day orientation program in California, learning Japaneese etiquette and some of the language before heading off on the 12 hour flight from Los Angeles to Tokyo. Once there, she was met by her host family, most of whom did not speak much english. She spent the next six weeks living in the Shinagawa-Ku Ward of Tokyo. Population in Shinagawa-Ku is 359,000 people in 8.8 square mile ward. She was enrolled at Toyo Eiwa Jogakuin, an all girl private christian school, where she took classes in Music, English, Math, PE, Chemistry, Biology, Home Economics and Calligraphy. She participated in traditional Japaneese Tea Ceremonies, learned the art of Ikebana (flower arranging) and made a Yukata (traditional Japaneese Ceremonial Dress). She attended a Kabuki play at the National Theater of Japan and a Tanabata festival. All of the students were given a tour of the Kikkoman factory and learned how soy sauce is made. Analise is the daughter of Pastor and Mrs. Curtis Garland of Wall. Her FCCLA chapter advisor is Ms. Connie Wolf. Family, Career and Community Leaders of America is a dynamic national student organization that helps young men and women become leaders and address important personal, family, work and societal issues through family and consumer sciences, education. FCCLA has nearly 200,000 members and over 6,500 chapters from 50 state associations, including Puerto Rico and the Virgin Islands. The organization has involved more than ten million youth since it was founded in 1945. FCCLA: The ultimate leadership experience is unique among youth organizations because its programs are planned and run by members. It is the only career and technical in-school student organization with the family as its central focus. Participation in national programs and chapter activities helps members become strong leaders in their families, careers and communities. Our warm spring and hot summer weather along with limited rainfall received, have resulted in a severe drought including loss of crops. The Farm Service Agency estimates 38,000 acres of crops and 500,000 acres of pasture are affected in this year’s growing season, costing upwards of $2.8 million for ranchers and farmers. The United States Drought Monitor shows all of Pennington County in a moderate or severe drought. Pennington County Commission recognized our county as a disaster area on July 17, 2012. The declaration was then sent on to Governor Dennis Daugaard who petitioned Tom Vilsack, U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, to declare Pennington County a disaster area. On August 1, 2012, the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture announced the approval of the drought declaration for Pennington County along with other counties in 12 U.S. states. More than half (50.3%) of all counties in the United States have been designated disaster areas by USDA in 2012, mainly due to drought. This disaster declaration opens the door for farmers and ranchers to apply for much needed relief funding and low-interest loans. Counties in South Dakota that have been approved as of Aug. 1 under the Disaster Declaration include: Bennett, Bon Homme, Butte, Charles Mix, Clay, Custer, Davison, Douglas, Fall River, Gregory, Haakon, Hanson, Hutchinson, Jackson, Lawrence, Lincoln, McCook, Meade, Pennington, Shannon, Todd, Tripp, Turner, Union and Yankton.

Open government task force created
Governor Dennis Daugaard and Attorney General Marty Jackley announced the formation of an Open Government Task Force that will study open record and open meeting laws in South Dakota to ensure maximum public access to state government business. “The workings of government should be as transparent as practicable,” the Governor said. “Unless there is a compelling reason otherwise, I believe government information should be open and easily accessible.” The task force includes media; city, county and state officials; representatives of various organizations; law enforcement; prosecutors; and others. “This task force will continue work that has been done in the past decade that led to creation of the Open Meeting Commission and an Open Meeting statute that presumes most state government records are public,” the Attorney General said. “Reviewing the current process with those who deal with open records and meetings each day is invaluable and should be considered.” The Open Government Task Force will meet several times this summer and fall, and then report its findings and recommendations to the Governor and Attorney General. The initial meeting of the group will be August 22, at 1 p.m. CDT, in the Capitol Lake Visitor Center at Pierre. A likely result of the study will be legislation that would continue to improve and update open record and open meeting laws.

Social Security News
Becoming a payee may be the best way to help tersen By Kathy Pehow benefits can best be used for his or her personal care and wellbeing. Each year, Social Security will mail you a form to account for the benefits you have received. The quickest and easiest way to complete the form is online, at www.socialsecurity.gov/payee. You can also complete the paper form and return it to Social Security. As a representative payee, you will also need to tell Social Security about changes that may affect the beneficiary’s eligibility. This includes things like changes in living arrangements, other income, and resources. If you decide you want to help someone by becoming their representative payee, you’re in good company. More than seven million people who get monthly Social Security or SSI payments each month have a representative payee because they need help managing their money. By agreeing to serve as a representative payee, you have taken on an important responsibility — one that can make a positive difference in both the beneficiary’s life and your own. Learn more by reading our online booklet, A Guide For Representative Payees, available on our website at www.socialsecurity. gov/pubs/10076.html. Kathy Petersen is a public affairs specialist for Social Security, Denver Region. You can write her c/o Social Security Administration, 605 Main, Suite 201, Rapid City, SD, 57701 or via e-mail at kathy. petersen@ssa.gov. Social Security Public Affairs Specialist If a loved one, friend or neighbor receives Social Security or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) benefits but is no longer physically or mentally able to take care of his or her financial affairs, you may want to consider becoming a representative payee. Then, you’ll be able to help them with managing their money. Keep in mind that being a representative payee is not the same as having power of attorney. Even if you do have power of attorney, you will need to apply to be a representative payee in order to have the benefit payments made to you on the beneficiary’s behalf. When we learn that a person is no longer able to handle his or her own Social Security or SSI benefits, we conduct a careful investigation and appoint a relative, friend or other interested party to serve as the representative payee. This means that if you agree to be a representative payee and we appoint you, we pay you the person’s benefits to use on his or her behalf. As a representative payee, you would be responsible for using the benefit payments to help meet the basic needs of the beneficiary. Primarily, the funds should be used to provide food, clothing, shelter, utilities and other essential needs for the person eligible for benefits. As a representative payee, you need to be aware of the beneficiary’s needs so you can decide

Rural Women Conference moves to new location
South Dakota Rural Women will once again host their annual fall conference but in a new location for 2012. Slated for October 4-5, the conference will be held at the beautiful K Bar S Lodge in the Black Hills near Keystone. The theme for this year’s conference is “Faces of Agriculture”. Women attending will hear from various entrepreneurial ‘faces’ involved in South Dakota agriculture and how they found their place in the industry. Keynote speakers will include Brenda Elsagher who will offer up a funny take on serious life matters with her message, “A funny thing happened on the way to my crisis”. Runner, Elaine Doll-Dunn, will help give ladies an action plan – where you are, where you want to be and how to get there - for including your face in agriculture or accomplishing any goal. “We invite women in the region to join us for the two days. To explore their role in agriculture, connect with other women like them and just have fun in a beautiful setting,” says Robin Salverson, conference chair. The conference kicks off Thursday, October. 4 with a wine tasting at Prairie Berry Winery followed by fun evening sessions at K Bar S Lodge. Elsagher and Dunn will be part of the Friday conference lineup that begins at 8:30 a.m. and concludes at 4 p.m. There is a pre-registration fee for both days. Registration and payment is required by September 21. Contact the SDSU Lemmon Regional Extension Center for a registration form at (605) 3744177 or e-mail Salverson at robin. salverson@sdstate.edu.

Hughes County resident first West Nile death in South Dakota
The Department of Health recently reported a Hughes County resident in the 80 to 89 age group has died of West Nile virus (WNV) encephalitis. It is the first WNVrelated death reported in South Dakota since 2007. "This unfortunate death is a sad reminder that those over age 50 are at higher risk for West Nile complications,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist for the Department of Health. To prevent mosquito bites and reduce the risk of WNV, the department recommends the following personal precautions: •Use mosquito repellents (DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535) and limit exposure by covering up. •Limit time outdoors from dusk to midnight when Culex mosquitoes are most active. •Get rid of standing water that gives mosquitoes a place to breed. •Support local mosquito control efforts. Personal precautions are especially important for those at high risk for WNV – people over 50, pregnant women, transplant patients, individuals with diabetes or high blood pressure, and those with a history of alcohol abuse. People with severe or unusual headaches should see their physicians. Thirteen South Dakota counties have now had WNV detections. There have been nine human WNV cases, seven positive blood donors, one positive horse, one positive bird and 34 positive mosquito pools. Since its first case in 2002, South Dakota has reported more than 1,700 human WNV cases and 27 deaths. Find WNV prevention information on the Web at http:// westnile.sd.gov. Information is also available from the SDSU Cooperative Extension Service at http:// www.sdstate.edu/sdces/issues/wnv. cfm.

Agriculture Secretary Vilsack announces new drought assistance, designates an additional 218 counties as primary natural disaster areas
Nearly 4 Million Acres of Land Open to Haying and Grazing; Obama Administration-wide drought response continues Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack announced two new pieces of disaster assistance for farmers and ranchers impacted by the nation's worsening drought. First, Vilsack is expanding emergency haying and grazing on approximately 3.8 million acres of conservation land to bring greater relief to livestock producers dealing with shortages of hay and pastureland. Second, the Secretary announced that crop insurance companies have agreed to provide a short grace period for farmers on insurance premiums in 2012. As a result, farming families now have an extra 30 days to make payments without incurring interest penalties on unpaid premiums. Earlier, Vilsack signed disaster designations for an additional 218 counties in 12 states as primary natural disaster areas due to damage and losses caused by drought and excessive heat. Counties designated are in the states of Arkansas, Georgia, Iowa, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Mississippi, Nebraska, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, and Wyoming. More than half (50.3 percent) of all counties in the United States have been designated disaster areas by USDA in 2012, mainly due to drought. "President Obama and I will continue to take swift action to get help to America's farmers and ranchers through this difficult time," said Vilsack. "The assistance announced will help U.S. livestock producers dealing with climbing feed prices, critical shortages of hay and deteriorating pasturelands. Responding to my request, crop insurance companies indicated that producers can forgo interest penalties to help our nation's farm families struggling with cash flow challenges. The Obama Administration intends to continue helping those who farm or ranch and live and work in rural America through this period of hardship." Emergency Haying and Grazing In response to the expanding drought, Secretary Vilsack announced that livestock producers and other participants in the Conservation Reserve Program (CRP) will now be able to hay and graze acres that have been ineligible in the past. Many of these additional acres have wetland-related characteristics and are likely to contain better quality hay and forage than on other CRP acres. There are approximately 3.8 million acres that will now be eligible for emergency haying and grazing, subject to certain conditions. Haying and grazing may only occur under strict compliance rules to help minimize impacts on these sensitive specialty practices. In addition, USDA will conduct follow-up monitoring and evaluation of these opened CRP areas to study the effects of the drought and USDA's emergency haying and grazing actions. Producers should contact their local Farm Service Agency offices for additional information. Federal Crop Insurance Secretary Vilsack announced that crop insurance companies have agreed to provide a short grace period for farmers on insurance premiums in 2012. To help producers who may have cash flow problems due to natural disasters, Secretary Vilsack sent a letter to crop insurance companies asking them to voluntarily defer the accrual of any interest on unpaid spring crop premiums by producers until November 1, 2012. In turn, to assist the crop insurance companies, USDA will not require crop insurance companies to pay uncollected producer premiums until one month later. During the 2012 crop year, USDA has designated 1,584 unduplicated counties across 32 states as disaster areas—1,452 due to drought—making all qualified farm operators in the areas eligible for low-interest emergency loans. The U.S. Drought Monitor indicates that 66 percent of the nation's hay acreage is in an area experiencing drought, while approximately 73 percent of the nation's cattle acreage is in an area experiencing drought. During the week ending July 29, USDA's National Agricultural Statistics Service reported that U.S. soybeans rated 37 percent very poor to poor, matching the lowest conditions observed during the drought of 1988. NASS also reported that 48 percent of the U.S. corn crop was rated very poor to poor, while 57 percent of the nation's pastures and rangeland are rated very poor or poor condition. Last week, President Obama met with Secretary Vilsack and members of his Cabinet to discuss additional steps the Administration could take to help farmers, ranchers and business owners manage and recover from the current drought. Later in the week, President Obama directed Secretary Vilsack to convene a meeting of the White House Rural Council to update members and stakeholders on the Administration response to the drought. Vilsack will update Rural Council members and stakeholders again next week on new steps taken by the Administration to combat the drought. Under Secretary Vilsack's leadership, USDA has announced a variety of steps to get assistance to producers impacted by the worsening drought, including: •Allowing additional acres under CRP to be used for emergency haying or grazing. The action allows lands that are not yet classified as "under severe drought" but that are "abnormally dry" to be used for haying and grazing. •Allowing producers to modify current Environmental Quality Incentives Program (EQIP) contracts to allow for grazing, livestock watering, and other conservation activities to address drought conditions. •Authorizing haying and grazing of Wetlands Reserve Program (WRP) easement areas in droughtaffected areas where haying and grazing is consistent with conservation of wildlife habitat and wetlands. USDA has expedited its authorization process for this haying and grazing. •Encouraging crop insurance companies to provide a short grace period for farmers on unpaid insurance premiums, as some farming families can be expected to struggle to make ends meet at the close of the crop year. •Reducing the emergency loan interest rate from 3.75 percent to 2.25 percent. •Lowering the reduction in the annual rental payment to producers on CRP acres used for emergency haying or grazing from 25 percent to 10 percent in 2012. •Simplifying the Secretarial disaster designation process and reduced the time it takes to designate counties affected by disasters by 40 percent. USDA agencies have been working for weeks with state and local officials, as well as individuals, businesses, farmers and ranchers, as they begin the process of helping to get people back on their feet. The U.S. Small Business Administration has also made 63 agency declarations in 33 states covering 1,675 counties, providing a pathway for those affected to apply for an Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL). SBA's EIDLs are available to small, non-farm businesses and small agricultural cooperatives that are economically affected by the drought in their community. Also, U.S. Department of Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood will convene a call with states to listen and discuss the ways in which U.S. DOT can work with Governors and State Departments of Transportation to help communities impacted by the drought. Secretary LaHood will be joined by both Anne Ferro, Administrator of the Federal Motor Carriers Safety Administration and Greg Nadeau, Deputy Administrator for the Federal Highways Administration. The Obama Administration, with Agriculture Secretary Vilsack's leadership, has worked tirelessly to strengthen rural America, maintain a strong farm safety net, and create opportunities for America's farmers and ranchers. U.S. agriculture is currently experiencing one of its most productive periods in American history thanks to the productivity, resiliency, and resourcefulness of our producers. A strong farm safety net is important to sustain the success of American agriculture. USDA's crop insurance program currently insures 264 million acres, 1.14 million policies, and $110 billion worth of liability on about 500,000 farms. In response to tighter financial markets, USDA has expanded the availability of farm credit, helping struggling farmers refinance loans. In the past three years, USDA provided 103,000 loans to family farmers totaling $14.6 billion. Over 50 percent of the loans went to beginning and socially disadvantaged farmers and ranchers. Primary counties in South Dakota are designated as disaster areas: Bennett, Bon Homme, Butte, Charles Mix, Clay, Custer, Davison, Douglas, Fall River, Gregory, Haakon, Hanson, Hutchinson, Jackson, Lawrence, Lincoln, McCook, Meade, Pennington, Shannon, Todd, Tripp, Turner, Union and Yankton.

Fire prevention team helps educate public
Wildfires, severe drought, increased visitors and fire restrictions in the Black Hills area necessitated bringing in a team of highly trained educators to South Dakota. Black Hills National Forest Supervisor Craig Bobzien requested the group be assigned to fire prevention and education support for the next two weeks. Supervisor Bobzien said, “Fire danger is high right now and we want to help our visitors understand how they can prevent fires. Our goal is to keep people safe and enjoying clear skies in the Black Hills.” The Fire Prevention Team will be here during the Sturgis Motorcycle Rally. They are coordinating their education efforts with the State of South Dakota and local jurisdictions. Vince Urbina, Prevention Team Leader, said, “The conditions in the Black Hills are why a team was ordered. Team members will be out in the campgrounds and communities, at various events, and of course around Sturgis to help educate the public about preventing wildfires. This is what we do, and hopefully the rest of the year will see a drop in humancaused wildfires.” For more information on the Black Hills National Forest, visit http://www.fs.usda.gov/blackhills.

Wall News
Gathered by Frances Poste The Sheridan, Wyo. Babe Ruth 14 year olds team traveled to Worland, Wyo., July 18 to 21. Brian Kjerstad, son of Bruce and Karen Kjerstad of Sheridan, Wyo. was a member of the team. They won all four of their games which will advance them to the Babe Ruth regional in The Dalles, Oregon on August 1-6. Brian was awarded the most Valuable Player of his team in the Worland Tournament. Needless to say, he has proud parents and grandmother, Evelyn Kjerstad, formally of Wall. Tuesday, July 31st, Judy and Williams Werning, Parkston, S.D., visited the Harnisch’s. They are cousins of Wilma and Mildred. Merlin and Betty Crown attended the State Baseball Tournament in Brookings, this past weekend. The Aberdeen Smittys lost their first game to Sioux Falls East with a 0-1 score. They also lost the second game to Pierre with a score of 6-5. Saturday, they played Yankton. The Smittys came back to win that game. The score was tied in the 6th enning; a double play by Bailey Hauge made that game 6-5. A good way to end the season. All were good games and great young athletes. Merlin and Betty Crown stopped in Kimball, S.D. to visit Allison Crown and to see her new home. They later visited the Dean Flemming family in Madison. Prairie Village has been replacing windows in all of the apartments and the dining area. Before that, they had put new cupboards in the main kitchen and the apartments. Everything looks nice. New windows were installed at the Wall Community Center, also, last week and the library has a new door. Looking good! Gerald and Esther Wolford took a leisurely drive in the Black Hills last week to celebrate their 46 years of marriage. They went down to Custer and Pringle and ate that evening at Hill City. Congratulations to the couple. Delja Hoffman celebrated her 85th birthday on Sunday with an open house party at the Lutheran Church. There were many “wellwishers” who came to visit and enjoy birthday cake. Congratulations, Delja! Lucille Huether was at Delja’s party. Her daughter, Sheryl, had brought her to Wall from Somerset Court, Rapid City, where she now resides. It was good to see you, Lucille! Our local pharmacist, Cynthia Dinger, at Wall Drug Store was featured recently in a magazine printed yearly by the South Dakota State University in Brookings — “The College of Pharmacy”. Not only was there a story, but Cindy’s picture was on the cover! The magazine is published to highlight many of the achievements of their students, faculty and alumni. We say “Congratulations to you, Cindy! We knew you were special”. Mark your calendar — “Theme” meal at Prairie Village will be on Monday, August 13th. Menu will be hot beef sandwich, mashed potatoes, gravy, green beans, peaches and ice cream. There are more birthdays listed in the Courant — help them celebrate by sending cards. Harold Benson turned 99 on August 3rd; Audrey Hoffman will be 80 on August 7th; and Gene Crosbie has his 7-th birthday on August 10th. Our congratulations to all of them.
Pennington County Courant • August 9, 2012 •
Enjoy your day. The Site Council for the Meals Program met last Wednesday at Prairie Village for their regular meeting. Carol Hahn reported on a quarterly meeting she had attended in Rapid City and Kathy Hamann reported on a cooking school she had attended at Mitchell last May. We hope to encourage more people to participate in this balanced noon meal offered Monday through Friday. The Senior Citizen pot luck supper will be on Thursday, August 16th, at 6 o’clock. Hope you can make it! There is always plenty of food and variety. The motorcycle rally in Sturgis officially opened on Monday, August 6th, and will go through next Sunday. Wall has been “plumb full” of people and bikes for sometime but on Sunday it was crowded. What do you think they are going to find out with that robot “Rover” on Mars? Granted, the technology to get it there and actually land to gather information is great but how will it effect you or me? In the obituary for Meta Dabney the name of Virginia Poste of Wyoming, sister-in-law, was omitted. She was listed in the Philip Pioneer Review. Olympic Summer games are still going on. Those athletes have been training for years, certainly takes dedication. Gymnastics and swimming are still favorites for me. Shauna, Remmington and Marlee Kay Meyerink of Platte, spent a couple days at the Williams ranch. They went to Rapid City on Sunday to visit Shauna’s mother, Debbie. We did have a couple showers last week — Thursday evening produced three-tenths of an inch. The shower cooled things off nicely as there was some hail but not enough to damage anything. The electricity was off for less than half an hour - never heard the cause. Friday night’s late shower put only one-tenth of an inch in the gauge. Saturday was a beautiful day with 78 degrees for a high. It’s warming up again this week so most probably there will be red flag warnings for fire danger. Have a good week!
through a Custer High School Reunion a few years ago. Boyd lives in Southern California and enjoys coming to the Rally and here we are, so it all works! News from Kortney and Derek Smid: six year old daughter, Natalee is a cheerleader for the Wall Eagles Mighty Mite football team. There will be six to eight more girls also on the squad. Practice will begin on Monday, the 6th. Natalee is also very excited for school to begin. She will be a first grader and loves school! Baby Kylee, seven weeks old, is still being the best and cutest baby in the world, is content, eats, sleeps and coos! Mom Kortney has just recently gone back to work, but grandmother Doreen gives loving care during work hours. Last but not least of their news is that the foundation is being poured within a few days and the new house will be ready to move into early September. Congratulations! News from Doreen and Kyle Skillingstad: Kyle is home from Williston, N.D. for a few days. The campground is seeing some Rally business. Deyton Skillingstad, who will be a second grader this year, has attended a football camp held in Wall for two weeks in mid July. Football practice for the Wall Eagles Mighty Mite team starts Monday with Deyton signed up for te team. Let us know the schedule, Deyton so we can put it in this column, okay

Deyton? Checking up on Kelly Green, whom I’ve not seen all summer, I find she has been working at the Badlands Park Visitors Center. She has been enjoying it and likes working with the visitors answering questions and helping out as she is needed. She has met a lot of nice people who are tourists from all over and also works with nice people. The Terry Schell family will be celebrating daughter Heather’s wedding in Scottsbluff, Neb., next weekend. Billie Hulm is looking forward to going as is Hazel Kalkbrenner. The “guest list” and doings will be covered later! (That is newspaper column talk for I don’t have any other information yet!) I’m still feeling grateful for the north wind, the cool, the rain, the hail, the wind! South Dakota at its finest! Faye Bryan and Sheila Drees enjoyed Sunday’s still pleasant weather at Faye’s cabin. Faye was pleased to note there was still water in her dam. It’s a beautiful place out there! Mary Lewis is enjoying family time in the northeast, where it is cool and rains — often! Will we be able to get her back to western South Dakota? She says yes. Let’s think about participating in New Underwood’s Celebration the Saturday of Labor Day weekend. All are welcomed to be in the parade. What say you? Happy Trails!

Submitted by Lola Joyce Riggins 837-2053 Greetings… This should have been in last weeks but the notes disappeared and now correct me if needed. Vern and Carol Omdahl made a trip to Rapid City recently to observe a special meal out in observance to Vern’s birthday. I believe last year they were down south and observed Vern’s and one of their young sons just a couple of days a part. Oh where are my notes? Then I was making notes recently some people were getting a spot of rain and some of the neighbors got some hail and now our big danger is the fires. The destructive fires. On the news they were telling about the long, long running big Williams place that every building on the ranch/farm was burned to the ground. How heartbreaking. I remember a year or two ago the ranchers had to get out and cut thistles for hay before they dried up. So it could be worse. You have to love working with the land and the critters. Dennis and Kay Sieler drove into Wall recently and enjoyed Wall’s Celebration parade. Dennis has been busy harvesting and is done. Monday, Ruby Gabriel accompanied her cousins of Faith, to the White Horse Ministry Demonstration in Faith. The horse trainer demonstrated how to calm and teach the horse so his daughter could ride it in two hours. The horse was unbroke but his daughter rode it following the demonstration with the horse and rope. Several relatives and friends met at the Lutheran Church in Wall to wish Delja Hofmann a happy birthday. There were several Congratulations for wedding anniversaries, may the Countryside add ours. The Countrysides sincere sympathies are extended to loved ones for the loss of their loved ones. Thought: What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals. Optimism is the one quality more associated with success and happiness than any other.

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by Lloyd & Margee Willey How wonderful to have had some cooler days! My mother could have said something like, “It just gives you a new lease on life!” Lloyd has been feeling better and his doctor at Ft. Meade assured him that while it would take a couple weeks, the medication would help with the symptoms of vertigo which brought on the nausea. Being a virus, the infection has to run its course, so while he still wobbles from the inner ear infection he is getting around much better. Dick and Gaye Hadlock are enjoying the company of their grandson Joshua O’Neil and his family, wife Natalie, children Karlynn, Peter and Nadia. They will be staying through Wednesday the 8th of August. A long time friend as in Custer elementary school, Boyd Simonson will be arriving to spend a few days with us on Monday. Lloyd and he were good friends and playmates in Custer and became re-acquainted
Good Samaritan Society
We have had a very hot summer, so going outdoors have been limited. Rev. Curtis Garland held worship and communion service, and Alma Crosbie led our hymn sing. Our Ladies Group enjoyed eating corn on the cob and tomatoes from our garden for social time. A lot of stories were told from the time they prepared corn by canning, as there were no refrigeration back than. Rev. Darwin Kopfmann from the Wall Methodist church, led worship service and Carol Hahn led our hymn sing. Lois Pierce entertained our resident's on the piano with music from the 30's and 40's and also a sing-a-long. Youth Works from the twin cities were here for their last session and took residents outside and they also worked on puzzles, and led our devotions at noon-time and read the Bible. Tim and Sharon Raba brought their little donkey to the facility and residents really enjoyed the pet. He sure was a conversation piece among the residents. Rev. Lloyd Edwards from the Presbyertian church of Rapid City, held worship service and Marti Aus led our hymn sing. Friday afternoon, the Hackens family held a birthday party for Geraldine Hackens, with family and friends. Refreshment were provided by the family. Until next time…May God bless.

“For What Does The Scripture Say?”
“All have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.” “Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners.” “In Him (Christ) we have redemption through his blood; the forgiveness of our trespasses.” Jesus said, “for unless you believe that I am He (your savior) you shall die in your sins.” “How shall we escape (God’s wrath) if we neglect such a great salvation?”
ARE yOU A PAULINE EPSITLE?
by Pastor Ricky Kurth “Ye are our epistle written in our hearts, known and read of all men” (II Cor. 3:2). Since the Corinthians were saved by Paul’s gospel (I Cor. 15:1-4), the apostle calls them his epistles. Webster said that an epistle is “a writing… communicating intelligence to a distant person.” Surely the “intelligence,” i.e., the information that the Corinthians communicated to the world was that even the most sinful of men could be justified by God’s grace (I Cor. 6:9-11). But if Paul could say to the Corinthians, “ye are our epistle,” why does he go on to say that they were “manifestly declared to be the epistle of Christ” (3:3)? Ah, a letter written by an apostle under the inspiration of the Spirit was a letter from Christ! And since everyone who is saved today is also saved as a result of having believed Paul’s gospel, you too are a Pauline epistle! And so the debate over whether Paul wrote 14 or just 13 epistles is over! The apostle penned millions of letters over the past many centuries. It has often been said that you are the only Bible that some people will ever read, and this is sadly so. What a responsibility this places on us to live lives worthy of the Lord! Handwriting experts can tell who a letter is from by the way the i’s are dotted and the t’s are crossed, etc. Can men tell who sent you, Christian friend? Are you dotting all the i’s and crossing all the t’s when it comes to godliness? Many Christians who wouldn’t dream of corrupting the written word of God found in Paul’s epistles (II Cor. 2:17) carelessly corrupt the living epistles of their lives by inconsistent godliness. Remember, letters don’t get time off! They read the same today as they did yesterday, and we too should be as consistent in our Christian testimony. If you are holy on Sunday and a holy terror the rest of the week, this is unacceptable to God (Rom. 12:1,2). Since the epistle of our life is “known and read of all men” (II Cor. 3:2), we want to make sure we don’t give men a faulty “reading” of Christ. All men understand by the stars that God exists, as the stars too are known and read of all men (Psa. 19:1-3). But while all men understand by the stars that God exists, all men understand by us what kind of God He is. When we live “soberly, righteously, and godly” (Titus 2:12), we prove to others what is acceptable to the Lord (Eph. 5:8-10).

the looking glass of time
80 years ago… The first car of new wheat was shipped out from Farmers Elevator of Wall, Monday evening. The Tri-State shipped their first car the next day after having first filled their elevator. Both plan to average a car a day for the rest of the week. One car was shipped to the Tri-State mill in Rapid City where a flour test will be made. All of the grain that has been brought in has been graded as No. 1 with a test of 59 to 63 lbs. to the bushel. Little Betty Pierce, daughter of Ira Pierce living about eight miles from Creighton, fell from her shetland pony last Tuesday and caused a partial paralysis of the muscles controlling the movement of one of her eyes, a condition called heterophoria. She received no other injury from her fall and even this was not noted by her parents until the following day. She is receiving treatment from Dr. Hoff, who believes that her ailment will soon be corrected. A car driven by R. T. Baum of Wolf, Wyoming, turned over on the highway about two and a half miles west of town, yesterday afternoon. The driver, Mr. Baum who recently returned from a trip to France, received bruised ribs and some bruises on his legs, while his two companions whom he had picked up along the highway escaped without even a scratch. The cause of the accident is not definitely known, but is thought to have been due to a low tire. The Ford roadster that he was driving, was badly wrecked and was towed into the Motor Inn garage. 70 years ago… The second disasterous hail storm, even more deadly than the first, brought ruin to scores of small grain farmers, Sunday evening. Starting on the Cheyenne near the Al Trask place the hailed strip widened until north of Wall, it reached from Oscar Mill’s to Creighton, and stretched itself eastward and southward to Cottonwood. Many of the ripening fields were changed in a few minutes to a great sheet of ice. The stones were not large, but were driven in such masses by the high wind that it mowed the ripe fields. A pool hall building in Cottonwood collapsed when the front end was blown in. The rain which accompanied the hail ranged from three inches at Joe Meiner’s to nearly an inch here at Wall. The new hospital now has a fire escape built onto the north of the building. This will permit easy removal of anyone trapped on the second floor, should a fire occur. The kitchen is now equipped with built-in cupboards, a cabinet sink, a skell gas stove, and will soon have an electric refrigerator. The kitchen floor was given its finishing coat of varnish the first part of the week. The hospital finance committee reports that one of the farmers from north of town boosted his previous donation by giving to the fund a check of one hundred dollars. Seventeen marriage licenses were issued and six divorce decrees were filed last month in the Clerk of Courts office. The number of marriage licenses issued was only four less than in July, 1941. Divorces granted last month numbered two more than in July of last year. 60 years ago… The Galbraith Mortuary, owned by one of Wall’s oldest businessmen, J. A. Galbraith, was sold this week to W. J. Walsh, Murdo. The mortuary and monument business in this area has been taken care of by J. A. Galbraith since 1920, making him one of the oldest businessmen in this community. The new owner, W. J. Walsh, is a Philip man but has been working at the Sorensen Funeral Home in Murdo, the pass four years. His wife was also raised in Philip. They have three children — two boys and a girl, Dennis, Daniel, and Colleen. The Wall sale ring which has been idle for the past few months is being re-opened by Cliff Van Houton with the sale Monday, August 4. Van Houton hails from Bloomfield, Neb. and is widely known as a livestock auctioneer and dealer. For the past eleven years he has been crying the sales in Yankton, one of the largest livestock auctions in the country. He was auctioneer until last October of the livestock auctions in Philip and many give him credit for having made the Philip sales such a success. Fifty new cases of polio were reported during the month of July in South Dakota, which brings the total up to 66 for the first seven months of 1952, Dr. G. J. Van Heuvelen, state health director, reported. Pennington County has reported seven cases to the health office. Hans Hamann, manager of the Tri-State elevator, said the small grain harvest was practically completed. Although he had heard that wheat on the Jack Rhyley place yielded up to 35 bushels per acre, the average for the Wall area, nearer the 10 to 12 bushel mark. 50 years ago… Cottonwood Range Station: The month of July is known as the hot dry month. This July seems to be giving us the opposite kind of weather with moderate temperatures along with a good measure of moisture for the first 26 days of the month. Here at the Cottonwood Range Station, 2.88 inches has been recorded for the first 26 days of July. For this same period we have had seven days recording over 90 degrees. Velda Kjerstad, daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Peder Kjerstad, Quinn, graduated from the St. Johns McNamara School of Nursing, July 27. During her three years training, she was a candidate for the Miss Snow Queen contest; was president of nurses association; attended state Student Nurses Convention in Sioux Falls; editor of the school paper; chairman of the MDay Float committee; chairman of the Recruitment Tea; and has served on numerous other committees. She was a member of the St. Johns Chorus all three years. Starting with the year 1950 through 1959, a 10 year period, the West River Electric Association, Inc. increased its energy sales from 3,433,877 KWHs to 13,631,825 KWHs, or just over an yearly increase of annual $1,000,000 KWHs. In 1960, it increased to 15,759,573, an increase of 2,100,000. But now look: in 1961, 20,928,676 KWHs were used by WREA members; an increase of over 5,000,000 KWHs in just one year. So far this year, indications are that 24,000,000 KWHs will be used. 40 years ago… Alfred Strandell luckily escaped with only minor injuries when he lost control of his car and rolled it Tuesday afternoon a short distance west of Wasta. He was taken to a Rapid City hospital by his son Don, where he was examined for injuries and released. Yesterday he was up and around but sore and stiff. The accident happened when he and another car both traveling west, and both attempting to pass a slow moving camper at the same time. The other car, Carrols of Rapid City, only received minor damage to a front fender and door. Strandell’s car spun around on the pavement and then rolled over twice into the median, coming to rest on the four wheels. The car is nearly a complete loss. Kenneth Hansen was severely cut on his right arm when he apparently fell into the big exhaust fan at the Jack and Jill Food Center. The accident occurred Monday at 3:30 p.m. He was rushed by ambulance to the Rapid City hospital with Lee Vanderbush and Dean Joyce driving the ambulance. Hansen, the local refrigeration repairman in Wall, was working on the compressors used for cooling and refrigeration in the Jack and Jill Store when the mishap occurred. Dr. Thomas R. Horton has started his dental practice in Wall, replacing Dr. Reinke. Dr. Horton, as well as his wife and two children, is originally from northern Minnesota. His pre-dental education was taken at Itasca State Junior College in Grand Rapid, Minnesota, with an associate of science degree granted in June, 1968. He was then enrolled at the University of Minnesota College of Dentistry and in June 1970 received a Bachelor of Science with Distinction. In March, 1972, he graduated from the University with a Doctor of Dental Surgery. 30 years ago… The Pennington County Courant softball team had two victories on July 30, defeating the Cactus 6-3 and the Elkton House 12-11. Shaun Ruland and Jim Tines of Wall High School won a first place at the Kennebec 4-H Rodeo held August 1. Ruland and Tines got their first place in team roping, with a time of 8.2 seconds plus five for a one heeler. Both cowboys were awarded belt buckles. Wall Chamber of Commerce Treasurer Larry Graham announced that there is $3,148.59 in the celebration account during the chamber’s regular meeting Monday noon. Although several more bills may come in, it appears that the chamber cleared a little over $3000 on the 75th Anniversary Celebration held in Wall on the weekend of July 10. A motion was made and accepted to apply $1500 of the celebration fund money to this year’s Hoedown scheduled for the weekend following Labor Day. The other half of the money will be used to secure “name” entertainment for next year’s July 10 celebration.
20 years ago… BIRTH: Born June 27, 1992 to Rusty and Angela Lytle of Wall, a son, Zeb Julius. Little Zeb weighed in at 8 lbs. 3 oz. Proud grandparents are Joe and Nonie Lytle, Rapid City and Marvin and Joy Kammerer, Rapid City. Greatgrandmothers are Marian Bies, Piedmont and Susie Kammerer, Rapid City. On Monday, August 3, 1992 at approximately 12:30 p.m. the City of Wall, responded to the booming Vrooom of about 350 H.O.G.’s, led by Road Captain Linda Peavey, as they made their way into town from the Badlands National Park. The Cyclists were escorted by local law enforcement officers and additional re-enforcements from Pennington County. As the bikes came down Glenn Street and 4th Avenue, they were directed to a roped off area in the City’s parking lot, across from the First Western Bank. Most local restaurants, bars and businesses reported a brisk business during the three hour stop-over in Wall. On Wednesday, July 29, 1992, the Wall Teeners met Clearfield on the home field for the first game of the Region 4 Tournament. Wall lost to Clearfield, 6-4. On Thursday, July 30, Wall traveled to Clearfield for the second game of the tournament. Although Wall
started out with a 3-2 lead, they lost the game 14-4. Clearfield advanced to the State B Tournament to be held in Canistota. 10 years ago… The Samantha Jo Allison Bills Memorial Pool, in New Underwood, was officially dedicated and opened for business last Thursday. A crowd of supporters, classmates, and family members were present to take part in the momentous occasion for the community. Greg Naescher, a 2002 graduate of Wall High School, recently participated in the South Dakota AllStar Basketball game, July 24th in Aberdeen, SD. Greg is the son of Michael and Marie Naescher.
