Wall Badlands Area Chamber of Commerce host annual banquet
The Wall Badlands Area Chamber of Commerce held their annual banquet at the Wall Community Center on Friday, April 20. President Mary Williams called the meeting to order at 6:00 p.m. Cheyene Deering sang the National Anthem. Williams recognized Eric and Wendy Brunnemann and Mike and Marilyn Huether for hosting the event. Special visitors for the evening were introduced by Williams: •Mike Verchio - S.D. House of Representatives and wife Jeri, •Lance Russell - S.D. House of Representatives and wife, •Bruce Rampelberg - S.D. State Senator, •Lyndell Peterson - Pennington County Commissioner, •Dave Hahn - Wall Mayor and wife Carol, •Qusi Al-Haj - The west river regional director for Senator Thune’s Office, •Brad Otten - the west river director for Representative Kristi Neom’s office, •Nort Johnson and Leira Janklow – from Black Hills Badlands and Lakes, •Florence Thompson - Candidate for SD House of Representatives in District 30. Board of Directors were introduced along with members of the Tourism, Retail, Economic Development, Beautification and Celebration committees. Chamber Director Lindsey Hildebrand informed the guests that the chamber takes pride in its members and wanted to show their appreciation when businesses take the initiative to improve themselves in any way. The following businesses have put forth such an effort in the previous year: Badlands Harley Davidson Last year around this time, the community began to become aware that there was significant activity going on in the wax museum building. Rumors were buzzing about different possibilities, but I think everyone can agree with me when we say how excited we were to find out that Black Hills Harley Davidson was planning to remodel the building and open Badlands Harley Davidson. Owners, Al and LeeAnn Rieman, Cheryl and Clay Trulson, Jim and Monica Burgess and Terry and Melanie Rymer had this to say about the business, “Badlands Harley Davidson strives to provide a great experience to customers and motorcycle enthusiasts alike coming off I-90 coming out of the Badlands National Park. We are proud to be a part of the overall retail experience of the community of downtown Wall.” On behalf of the Chamber, I would like to thank you for choosing Wall for your expansion. Dakota Mill and Grain In the fall of 2010 and into the winter of 2011, Dakota Mill and Grain installed three new grain bins, increasing their capacity from 200,000 to 704,000 bushel. They’ve also made other improvements with their fertilizer storage areas and dramatically changed Wall’s skyline. Dakota Mill and Grain Inc is a South Dakota owned Agri Business which has a location in Wall, with the corporate office located in Rapid City. Their goal is to offer the best service to their customers by offering grain handling, grain marketing, chemical, fertilizer, seed feed, salt and various other farm and ranch inputs. Managers, Jerry Morgan and George Langendorfer view the relationship between the business and their farm and ranch customers as a partnership. Their goal is to be the best grain company and provide competitive prices, quality products and outstanding service to their customers. They’d like to welcome everyone to stop by and check out the facility and say Hello! They may even offer you some of that delicious popcorn. Fat Boys BBQ and Road Trip Cafe When owner Jim Coats purchased the former Elkton House, he knew he wanted to make some improvements. The Road Trip Café and Fat Boys BBQ came about and included a complete interior remodel of the restaurant. With a new menu and the same convenient location, they opened last summer in time for the rally and to catch the remainder of the tourist season. New Horizons One of 2011’s new chamber members started from square one. Marlene McMillan, owner and operator of New Horizons Message Therapy, opened her doors for business in 2011. New Horizons was inspired by the definition of the words – finding new limits to knowledge, experience or outlook. She hopes to provide an environment to help people become aware of what the body is capable of achieving when in a balanced state of well-being. Open by appointment only, Marlene offers a variety of massages and whether you’re looking for a little pampering or have more serious aches and pains, she would love to help you out.

City approves to move forward with an ambulance district election
by Laurie Hindman The Wall City Council met Thursday, April 19, at 10:00 a.m. as a special board. The board reviewed a building permit for Dan and Dawn Hilgenkamp to build a pole barn in the Kelly addition to use for storage. Mayor Dave Hahn said, “There are already barns out there, so this barn wouldn’t be out of character.” The board approved a motion for the permit pending review by the Public Works Department. There was a concern on a lessee question about who is responsible for installing a culvert. The culvert has a hole in it and is now plugged with debris. The city has a culvert which could be used to replace the plugged one. There was a consensus by the board that a new culvert be installed by the Public Works Department in the next two weeks. Larry Gravatt, who has been hired by the City of Wall to form an Ambulance District, handed out township maps to board members. He apologized to the City for letting them down, however, went on to explain that the action of the County Commissioners was probably best and we should still move forward with a district election to get approval. Gravatt, Carolynn Anderson and Bill Leonard went before the Pennington County Commissioners and were told to yield to requests by four townships who do not want to be part of the Wall Ambulance District, which Gravatt felt was not in the best overall interest of the project. He advised the council that those four townships are going forward to form their own ambulance district, which would remove them from the Wall district. By state law, they would then be required to provide residents with an ambulance service. Hahn asked, “Can we make this whole financial situation work?” Gravatt answered, “This won’t jeopardize our plan.” Gravatt went on to say that those few residents that would be lost and at a Levy of .80 per thousand, the financial loss would be minimal. Hahn then went over a list of ambulance district items to be discussed. It will cost the city $400 to have the petition drawn up and $1,000 or higher if there are more voting precincts and for election workers. It was discussed asking for volunteers to man the precincts. A motion was approved to have the petition drawn up and to run an election. Council members volunteered to take the petition around in their wards and Anderson will circulate the petition at the Wall Fire Departments pancake supper which was held on Saturday, April 21. Gravatt will circulate the petition in Wasta, Quinn and the area to the north. Hahn and council will put together a sheet explaining why this ambulance district is so important to the area. They will hand these out while circulating the petitions. A motion was approved to hold the election on Tuesday, July 10. The big question that was asked by Hahn was, “If the election fails, what is the city’s options?” Members discussed having a First Responder Service but that service can only comfort a patient, stop the bleeding and cannot transport a patient. Increase property taxes on the city residents? Ask the rural community for EMTs to help with the service? Stop city projects to fund the service? Hahn then asked if the sewer project should be stopped and said, “It’s going to be hard to pay for the main street project.” Hustead said, “we can’t stop those projects they have to be done.” The last question that was discussed by the council was to draw up a resolution to discontinue the ambulance service. These questions were strictly discussion by the board but at some time they are going to have to reach a conclusion if the ambulance district is not voted in. Gravatt informed the board at the last meeting there was good support in favor for the new ambulance district and to remain positive. The board agreed, good PR work and making sure that everyone gets out to vote is their main concern at this time. With no other business the meeting was adjourned.

by Laurie Hindman The Wall School Board held a special meeting on Thursday, April 20, at 7:30 a.m. A motion to add Executive Session for the purpose of discussing contracts according to SDCL 1-252 after the bid discussion was approved.

School & Area News
From the desk of Superintendent Dennis Rieckman
The school year is rapidly coming to a close with a little over a month left. We have students heading to FFA events, track/golf meets, and various field trips. When you think things are slowing down a bit something else comes along. I am looking for nominees for the Teacher of the Year. Nomination forms may be picked up in the office. We have an excellent staff and I need your help with the selection. If you have any questions please contact me, the nominations need to be in by Tuesday, May 8th. Parents, students, peers, or any community member may nominate a teacher. We are finishing up our Dakota STEP exams this week with students who were absent finishing up. I look forward to receiving the results this summer to see how students are doing compared with other schools. Our students continue to do well each year and I do not anticipate anything different. The senior class has done very well with the ACT exams and I believe our average will be very good. The schedule for high school students currently has a sixth period schedule and students are required to take six classes. The no study hall schedule has its pros and cons. We are looking at returning to a seven period day and I would like feedback from parents and students. A six period day without study halls hinders students taking electives, but the discipline problems have been fewer. Our attendance remains steady at an overall 95.6 percent for the school. The elementary has a rate of 95.5 percent with the third grade leading the way with a 97.2 percent. The Big White students lead all schools with a 97.8 percent rate. The middle school is at 94.8 percent and the high school has a 95.9 percent rate. I commend the students for stepping up and thriving to maintain good attendance. We have the music classes preparing for their annual spring concerts. The Elementary School will have their concert on Monday. May 7th and the MS/HS will follow on Thursday, May 10th. Both concerts will start at 7:00 p.m. in the main gym. The HS Academic and Activity Awards Night will be held in the Main gym on Tuesday, May 15th. A supper meal of BBQ’s, chips, brownies, and a drink will kick off the evening starting at 6:15 in the multipurpose room. The presentation of awards will be in the main gym starting around 7:00 p.m.

Wall Drug Store The Wall Drug store had considered moving their pharmacy to a downstairs location for some time to be more accessible to the customers. With the entry of their new pharmacist, Cindy Dinger, they thought there couldn’t be a more perfect time for a transition. With beautiful rich colors, a striking antique ceiling, and the pharmacy museum, it is a very pleasant step back in time. At the core of it all is still a pharmacy and the ability to serve a small rural community. Williams then introduced Teacher of the Year – Lori Walker who was chosen as the 2011 Wall School, Teacher of the Year. Walker who has been a lifelong resident of Wall attended South Dakota State University where she received her Bachelor’s Degree in Child Development, Family Relations and Elementary Education. She returned to Wall in 1974 where she began teaching middle school English. Her passion for kids grew deep as she was always striving to push them to better themselves and to build their self esteem. Helping students find confidence as learners is one of her greatest gifts. No matter what the circumstances are, she is always there to lend a helping hand and her love for helping kids extends beyond middle school. After 39 years of teaching at Wall High School, she continues to share her positive impact and instills her love of reading and writing in generations of children and inspires them to reach for their greatest dreams. Life Time Achievement Award was then presented to Dave Hahn. Hahn was born and raised on a farm in cold north east South Dakota. At the age of eight (with a father working hard at making a living for his family) this child was given a red Crosley convertible to drive to school. An interest in music and the gift of a saxophone led to music lessons in the backroom of the dry goods store in town when the family went shopping on Saturday nights. Off to town school in the seventh grade, band, chorus, marching band, trips to contests and church events from then through high school. All these years an interest in flying and watching a beloved uncle, who had an airplane and was a rather reckless pilot, kept him fascinated. Hahn attended SDSU majoring in music with a minor in industrial arts. March 5, 1959, he made his first solo and the pilots dream was realized.Through the years crop spraying, pleasure flying, mercy flights and airport manager were always at the top of his bucket list. College graduation led to several teaching jobs in North and South Dakota – new people, new destinations, new challenges always met with great enthusiasm. The need for more education led him back to SDSU for his Masters in Administration and a principal’s position in Gregory, SD. In August of 1971, Wall advertised a superintendent’s position in the school system. With only days before the opening of the school year he applied, was hired and moved. The enrollment in the decade was many more than we have today and the challenges were many. A great staff and supportive community led to enjoyable years. Once again, an opportunity arose to spark the man’s interest. Buy the Gambles store, use some lifetime skills and help the community. Fixing things, always making food taste better and meeting new people everyday. Many years spend building up the business, buying the Standard Station, serving as the Methodist Church choir director, organizing a community choir, serving in Jaycees, Toastmasters and giving 20 years to the Wall Volunteer Ambulance Service. The years have passed quickly and even though a few health issues have entered the plan, the energy and love for the town of Wall and its people are still challenging this mayor of 28 years to continue into the future always striving for improvements to benefit everyone. Written by Carol Hahn. Carol Hoffman was recognized for serving as president in 20102011. Williams then announced the following: •The City Cleanup Date is scheduled for May 12th. Please meet at the Wall Drug Store at 7:00 a.m. and meet back at the Drug store to eat breakfast between 8:00 and 8:30. •The Spring mixer/supper will be held at the Wall Golf course on Monday, May 14, at 6:00 p.m. •The Annual Spring Hospitality Training will be on May 30th with a morning and afternoon session. Bob Prentice will be the speaker. •The second annual Chamber Golf Tournament will be held on Saturday, June 30th. With no other business the meeting was adjourned and guest enjoyed the music of The Sugar Free Jazz Trio.

Letter to the Editor
To the Editor, When and why did our school turn into an auction barn? Shouldn’t our school be used solely to educate our students? Does this not set a bad precedence for anyone or everybody to utilize it to sell any type of merchandise? Does the school insurance policy cover everything and anything that could occur? How much was charged for rent? Was there a deposit to cover any possible damage? How do you repair a dent or bad scratch in maple flooring? (Please let me know because we have some in our living room floors.) If what one board member told is correct (and I believe it is) why was this decision made in Executive Session? Why by consensus? Wasn’t that a violation of the open meeting law? Shouldn’t it have been in open meeting by a board vote? If there was a contract should not the board and public be provided with the contract? Does allowing the sale of guns in the school set a bad example? Isn’t that a case of “don’t do as I do just do as I say”? Since Wall has a nice community center for rent and has held auctions, why not there? We pay school taxes lets just use them for that purpose. /s/Glen Lakner, Wall, SD 279-2228

Gant: Absentee balloting has begun
South Dakota Secretary of State Jason Gant is reminding voters that Friday, April 20th, marks the start of absentee balloting for the 2012 primary election on June 5th. “South Dakotans have widely embraced absentee voting as a matter of convenience,” Gant said. “In the 2010 general election, we had 411 members of the military vote overseas. However, we had an additional 63,339 South Dakota voters cast their ballots through mailed and in-person absentee balloting. This comprised 19.71 percent of all ballots cast in the 2010 general election.” According to primary data from the 2010 primary election, 11,651 or 11.3 percent of voters cast absentee ballots during the last June primary. “From reports I am receiving from County Auditors across South Dakota, current absentee requests are light, but as we get closer to the election, experience shows us that the pace picks up greatly. Many people decide to cast their vote through absentee balloting as a matter of convenience to avoid lines at the polls,” Gant said. “If a person believes they may not be aviailable to vote on election day, they can vote at their County Auditor’s office or visit sdsos.gov to complete an application for an absentee ballot,” Gant noted.

Initiated during the 1996-97 school year, the SDHSAA ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT TEAM AWARD program is designed to recognize varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups for their academic excellence. The South Dakota High School Activities Association believes that high school students learn in two distinct ways; inside the classroom and outside the classroom – on the stage and/or athletic field. This academic program creates a positive environment for school teams to have its members excel in the classroom. This program is also meant to motivate students toward academic excellence and to promote academic encouragement from teammates. All varsity athletic teams and fine arts groups that participate in Association sponsored activities are eligible for this recognition program. Based on a duplicated count, as reported in the 2010-11 SDHSAA Participation Survey, over 30,800 students participate in interscholastic athletics and over 29,200 more are involved in fine arts activities. The Academic Team Award program provides high school students with the opportunity to prove they can be overwhelmingly successful in both academics as well as in athletic and fine arts activities. All varsity fine arts groups and athletic teams that achieve a combined grade point average of 3.0 or higher are eligible to receive the SDHSAA ACADEMIC ACHIEVEMENT TEAM AWARD. With the completion of all the SDHSAA winter fine arts and athletic activities, the SDHSAA announces that the following schools and their teams have received the “Academic Achievement Team Awards” for the 2011-2012 Winter Season. Wall School received the following awards in: Vocal Solo-Ensemble Group, Girls Basketball Team, Wrestling Team. Gymnastics Team, One-Act Play, Band SoloEnsemble Group and Boys Basketball Team.

Connie is the daughter of Marian Eisenbraun and the late Les Eisenbraun of Riverside, CA. Dwight is the son of Robert and Bernetta Marxman of Effingham, Illinois. Paul and Kathy Eisenbraun of Columbus, IN were also in attendance. Olivia Austin, Simpsonville, SC, granddaughter of Steve and Wanda Goodrich, was maid of honor, and her sister Sarah played beautiful prelude music on her harp. Esther, Paul and Wanda are siblings of Annetta Geigle and Ivan Eisenbraun of Wall, SD. Denny Carmichael of Brookings, came on Wednesday to visit the Olsons and Doyles. On Thursday, Doug and Esther Enders came from Glen Rock, WY. Doug went on to Kadoka to visit his mother, Bonnie Enders, and the rest gathered at Dave and Arla Olson’s for visiting, lunch and more visiting. The Enders returned home on Thursday evening and Denny went home on Friday. Helen Crawford is in the Philip Hospital with pneumonia. Carol Hodge visited her on Wednesday, the 18th. Get well soon, Helen. “Theme” meal at Prairie Village on the 18th was well attended. As the kitchen was being renovated at Easter time, and the napkins, etc already purchased — we had an Easter theme. Most everyone likes Jelly Beans to represent Easter eggs! The Senior Citizen potluck followed the theme meal on the 19th. Again we had a great group with a big selection of food. Dennis Carmichael was here visiting his family so he entertained us following the meal by singing old favorites, accompanying himself on the guitar. Appreciate your thoughtfulness, Denny! Congratulations to our Mayor, Dave Hahn, as he was awarded the “Life-time Achievement Award” at the recent Chamber of commerce banquet. We offer our condolences to the families of those listed in the obituaries this past week: Pamela Eisenbraun Blankenship died April 3, 2012, at a hospice in Sioux Falls; William D. Peterson died at Pittsburgh, PA. People from around Wall know him as a member of the Class of 1953, WHS. Maxine Smith and Frances Poste went to the VA Hospital at Ft. Mead on Sunday to visit Richard Willuweit. He had been there since just before Easter with a heart condition and diabetes. He has been on oxygen 24/7 for quite some time. We wish you well, Richard. The Volunteer Firemen of Wall held their annual pancake supper and bake sale fundraiser on Saturday evening. They seemed to keep busy serving as people kept coming. Hope their boot was overflowing when serving time was over. Congratulations to the newlyweds, James and Lizzie (O’Sullivan) Sorensen. They were married April 7th in Jacksonville, NC, where James is stationed as a member of the Marine corps. Lizzie’s parents live in Allentown, PA. Mark and Darlene Poste were down on Sunday and planted trees out at the ranch, replacing those that did not make it through the year. Memorial Services for Rev. James “Jim” Cissell is scheduled for Monday, April 30th, at the First United Methodist Church, Rapid City. Again, our sympathy to the family. The street project in Wall looks like it is nearing completion. The lights down the middle are very attractive — seemed to go up in a hurry last Wednesday but we know the initial work was done previously. It will be nice to get rid of the detours. Arbor Day is April 27th. It is celebrated in all 50 states and around the world. Western South Dakota has a shortage of trees but interest has been high with Conservation practices. Arbor Day started in Nebraska in 1872 by Sterling Morton

Countryside News
Submitted by Lola Joyce Riggins 837-2053 Greetings… Nancy Horton is busy planting early garden one with potatoes and beets soon to follow. Parsnips and rutabaga are soon to follow. They received a much needed rain shower Thursday as did some others. Ours came and went. Also it looks especially welcome without the severe thunder and lightning. Last Sundays rain was sure made to order. We work up to it. The rain came down nice and gentle without the wind. It took a noon hour or so rest and the commenced raining until late evening. I heard some had over an inch amounts. Rich and Nancy Horton’s son, Mark, is graduating Saturday, the 29th, from the School of Mines and has accepted a position in Silver City, New Mexico, where they, Mark, Kelsey and Charlotte, will set up residence. May the Countryside send congratulations to our local young person Mark and family and wish them the best. My gosh the Main Street in Kadoka was bare Sunday, the 22nd. Not an outfit on the full two blocks and then just a red pickup in the next block. The driver was busy trimming the bushes in front of the Youth and Family Services. I must say the fact the businesses were closed so the workers could have the day off and spend time with families and enjoy the day is a big plus. I couldn’t belive the lilacs are already drying up and they usually aren’t blooming until graduation time. The little ants are busy making tiny hills along the sidewalks. John Neumann of rural Quinn, visited his aunt Jean Neumann at the Gateway Apts. one day last week. Jean is a resident at the apartments. Mary Kjerstad joined the many relatives and friends to attend the Bridal Shower at the Wall golf Course, Sunday afternoon for Kalie Anders. I’m sorry I have looked high and low for my paper but no show, so I can’t add any other details here. The disadvantage of not knowing some of the area people is frustrating. Mary did mention how much she enjoyed her visit with Kalie’s mother and grandmother and got to sit by her. Dennis and Kay Sieler drove to Williston, ND, for the weekend to attend Dennis’ great niece Makyla Johnson’s wedding. They enjoyed getting together with the family, the wedding and were weekend guests in the home of Dennis’ sister. Sharla Julson of rural Quinn, joined relatives and friends to attend the bridal shower for Kalie Anders-Conrad Kjerstad at the Wall Golf Course, Sunday afternoon. May the Countryside send our best wishes for happiness and a great life. It seems like the time passes so fast they are grown and making a new life. Well people the hint I’m getting is to fold up. I don’t even know who to call hardly anymore. I have so appreciated all of the encouragement I have received. You know who you are but I don’t know what to do. I was hoping when I got moved doing this would line out as it’s not been easy but I could practic writing, spelling and I’ve talked to people I haven’t met yet. The good part. Thought: Every accomplishment starts with the decision to try. Accomplishment is the gradual result of always driving to do better.

Club Notes
WALL ART GuiLD Wall Art Guild met April 23rd, at 9:00 a.m. at Wall Drug Store. Dorothy Jones, Nola Price, Norma Volz and Lorna Moore were present. Business: Lorna gave the financial report, income from membership, entry fees and donations at the art show was $170.00 and bills paid out were $182.00. The 2012 art show has received good reviews from people and 162 signed the guest book, many did not sign the guest book so we estimated around 200 attended. Displaying artwork locally was discussed. Nola mentioned maybe the banks would display one piece of art from different art club members and change to a different artist each month. Nola will talk to the banks and ask if this is something they would consider. It was decided the writers group was a nice touch at the art show this year and will have them again next year. Nola thought we should contact Dawn Newland and Kathy Thompson to give an art workshop next winter for our art club or anyone that would be interested in attending. Our next art club meeting will be in October, when we start our new year. Lorna made a motion instead of just having a meeting, to go to the restaurant south of Kadoka, for plein air paint out. Dorothy seconded. Meeting was adjourned. Lorna Moore Sec.

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted Lloyd & Margee Willey Yes, I know the Wasta Easter Egg Hunt is old news, but it was the best yet (we say that every year). We really appreciate the “Dynamic Sister Duo” Tammy and Moni and their willing “partners in fun” for all their help. There were 45 kids at the Lurz Park, Saturday, April 7! I don’t know how many adults. This has been an annual event since 1999 when Nita Jeppesen brought the idea to the other senior citizens. It has been fun from the beginning and has been a community event with parents, grandparents and neighbors organizing games and providing gift bags. We would also like to recognize the “big bunny to the east” for providing fresh eggs. This big bunny hangs out a lot at the Wall Food Center. Richard Johnston, as long as he was able, would come specifically to hide eggs for the bigger kids. He really liked to challenge them! We’d be finding very ripe blue eggs through summer. I believe it was Richard who said something like “Kids now-a-days are real lucky. When I was a kid we hunted and shot the Easter Bunny to cook for supper”. Sounds like a Richard humor, but if anyone out there takes credit for it, that’s okay by me! It’s been a busy week since we’ve been home. Our terrific cat-sitters and good friends, Hazel Kalkbrenner, Jamy and Ray Williams and Mary Lewis did such a great job that we were pretty well snubbed by Callie the Cat. We’ve done a little wandering around Wasta. Lloyd stopped to see Jerry, Barb and Tuff and came home happy to report that Tuff “the best dog ever” was okay and happy to see him. That was all they discussed, I guess! Well, Tuff is a wonderful dog, for sure. Hazel Kalkbrenner is busy in her back yard with garden readiness projects. Her front yard flowers are so pretty. Had a brief visit with Anna Lee Humphrey at Good Samaritan. She is doing well and progressing with therapy after her recent second surgery. She is positive and in good spirits. Daughter, Marilyn Stover was also there as was granddaughter Amanda and her two beautiful little ones, Lanie Mae and J.T. Mary Lewis has her corner “sunken garden” looking great. She also lends a capable hand at the park. Soon she will be having family time and is looking forward to seeing kids and grandkids. Speaking of capable hands, Dorothy Bathel is working on yet another beautiful quilt! She also puts in a lot of time with flowers and other work at the park as well as her own garden. Faye and I had a good lunch and fun conversation Friday. We got a laugh about her cat’s house being re-roofed by Ken Skillingstad. Well, it is a fine looking cat house. There were some travelers in Wall from New York City that Faye and I enjoyed talking with. We did mention after they told of their interesting trip through the Badlands and the prairie dog towns they had seen, that sometimes New Yorkers were very vocal about the little doggies being put on the “darling and endangered” list. They said “No, they would not return home and begin a club to ‘Save the Doggies.’ We assured them their remark would make news — so here it is — in the news — three New Yorkers say “No to establishing group to Save Dancing, Kissing, Darling Doggies”. One more bit and then I quit. Kortney and Derek Smid and big sister Natalee will welcome baby girl Kylee in June. Kortney, Derek and Natalee moved here from the Phoenix area about two years ago. It’s good to have them and so good they want to stay. Congratulations! A lot more news held over for next week. Happy trails!
Dwayne M. Coleman_____________________________
Dwayne M. Coleman, 87, Rapid City, died April 21, 2012, at Westhills Village. Dwayne was born October 27, 1924, in Wasta, S.D., to Champ Coleman and Amalie Isenberg Coleman. Upon graduating from Wasta High School in 1942, he enrolled in the University of Wyoming, later serving in World War II as an officer in the U.S. Army Air Corps as a navigator on the B-24 bomber in Burma, Siam and India. He married Helen Overholt from Wall, S.D., on November 1, 1944, at the First Presbyterian Church of Rapid City, of which he was a current member. Dwayne graduated from the Colorado School of Mines in 1949 as a petroleum engineer and began his 36-year career with Mobil Oil (Exxon Mobil). He obtained his master's degree in petroleum engineering in 1954 from Texas A&M. His career took him from Texas, Oklahoma, Louisiana and Canada, culminating in the position of offshore engineering manager for Mobil's Worldwide Offshore Research and Development Division. He and Helen traveled extensively to Norway, Sweden, France, England, the Mediterranean, Africa, Newfoundland and Sable Island. They built their retirement home on the shores of Hayden Lake, Idaho, while maintaining winter residences in Dallas and Possum Kingdom Lake, Texas. They had three daughters. After Helen's death in 1988, Dwayne married Ruth Ord of Denver, and spent seven years traveling to Hawaii, Mexico, Australia, New Zealand, Canada and the U.S., visiting family and friends until Ruth died in 1996. Dwayne then returned to Rapid City, remaining active in local and national politics and focused on the TransCanada Keystone Pipeline. Dwayne is survived by brother, Boyce Coleman and his wife, Lila (Las Vegas); daughters, Debbie Baird and her husband, Miller (Denver), Cynthia Jo Lopez (Tampa), Pam Troxel and her husband Tom (Rapid City); grandchildren, Justin (Jana) Carlyle (Rapid City), Kimbra (Zeb) Dafnis (Phoenix), Hale Henderson (Dallas); and three great-grandchildren; and Tom and Jeff Ord (Las Vegas). He was preceded in death by sister Thalice Meiners. A service of praise and thanksgiving for the life of Dwayne Coleman was held at the Behrens-Wilson Funeral Home in Rapid City on April 25, 2012, officiated by Rev. Herb Cleveland. Burial with military honors followed at Mountain View Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial gifts may be given to World Vision to drill water wells to provide life giving water to needy families worldwide. Condolences may be conveyed to the family at www.behrenswilson.com.

Take steps to prevent tick-borne illness
South Dakotans heading outdoors need to protect themselves from ticks and the diseases they can carry, says a state health official. “Each year we have South Dakotans infected with tularemia, Rocky Mountain spotted fever and Lyme disease — all tick-borne illnesses,: said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist for the Department of Health. “Last year we reported four cases of lyme disease, eight of tularemia, three of ehrlichiosis, and one Rocky Mountain spotted fever in South Dakota.” Kightlinger noted that the department investigates every case of tick-borne disease reported. Those investigations found that all four cases of Lyme disease reported in 2011 had out-of-state tick exposure. South Dakota’s prairies actually help to deter Lyme disease somewhat because the deer tick that carries it needs heavily forested areas to thrive. A 2011 tick surveillance project in eastern South Dakota found none of the loxodes black-legged deer ticks that carry Lyme disease. The SDSU-led project surveyed forested areas around Sica Hollow, Oak Lake and Lewis and Clark Recreation Area multiple times over an 88-day period between June and October. “While we did not find the deer tick that carries Lyme disease, we did find that Dermacentor variabilis, the dog tick, was plentiful in all three locations,” said Dr. Michael Hildreth, a professor in the departments of Biology and Microbiology and also Veterinary and Biomedical Science at SDSU. “The dog tick transmits Rocky Mountain Spotted Fever, tularemia and ehrlichiosis.” Symptoms of tick-borne illness include sudden onset of a moderate-to-high fever, stiff neck, deep muscle pain, arthritis, fatigue, severe headache, chills, a rash on the arms and legs or around the site of the bite, and swollen lymph nodes, particularly in the neck. If you develop any of these symptoms after a tick bite, see your doctor. With Rocky mountain spotted fever the illness does not start immediately after the tick bite, but typically five to 10 days after the tick attachment. A tick bite is usually painless and appears as a small red bump with a bright red halo. To remove an attached tick, use tweezers or a tissue and pull slowly and steadily, being careful not crush it. Then apply antiseptic to the site to prevent infection. If you use bare hands to remove a tick, wash your hands thoroughly with warm water and soap, being especially careful not to touch your eyes before washing. To repel ticks when outdoors tuck your pants into your socks and spray clothes and any exposed skin with a tick repellent. Other precautions include: •Check frequently for ticks when outside, especially the scalp and folds of skin. Ticks need to be attached for several hours to spread infection so you can significantly cut your risk by checking for and removing ticks right away. •Check small children thoroughly and often for ticks when they’ve been outside or have had contact with pets or livestock that may have ticks. •Ask your veterinarian about appropriate insecticides and collars to protect pets from ticks and limit the number they carry into the home. For added protection, apply insecticides and tick repellents to your pet’s bedding. •Check your animals frequently for ticks. To remove ticks from animals, apply constant traction with forceps or tweezers. If you must use your fingers, wear disposable gloves and wash hands thoroughly with soap and water afterward. Fact sheets on specific tickborne diseases can be found on the department of Health website at http://doh.sd.gov/DiseaseFacts/.

ARE YOu LISTENING?
by Cornelius R. Stam The Apostle Paul had much that he yearned to teach the Hebrew believers -- wonderful truths that would have thrilled their hearts -- but these truths were "hard to be uttered," or difficult to explain to them, since they were "dull of hearing." The word "dull" in Heb. 5:11 really means "slothful," or indifferent (as in Heb. 6:12). They were not merely hard of hearing, as we say, but were too lazy, too indifferent, spiritually, to pay attention. They were not sufficiently interested. This is always a serious condition in the light of the fact that "God hath spoken," and that disobedience to His Word will be judged (Heb. 1:1,2; 2:1-3). Yet, alas, this is the condition of the professing Church today. The great majority of religious people are not sufficiently interested in what God has said to engage in diligent, prayerful study and, like those of Paul's day, still have to be taught "the first principles" of the Bible. They have remained babes, spiritually, unable to digest anything but "milk," and so remain "unskillful in the Word of righteousness" (Heb. 5:12-14). What has brought this condition about? Is it because our Bibles are being burned and the Church persecuted for reading it? Is it because God is unwilling to lead us further into His truth? Most assuredly not. It is because so many men of God in high places no longer have the single passion to know God's Word and to make it known. They could be as greatly used of God in teaching the Scriptures as their predecessors were, but they are "slothful of hearing" and hence can present their hearers with little that is of true value. This, in turn, is reflected in the religious masses. They "love" their Bibles, but not enough to study them diligently and become workmen whom God can approve. Let us not be numbered among these. Rather, let it be our one great desire to gain a clear understanding of God's Word, rightly divided -- for His sake, for our own sake and for the sake of the needy souls about us.

WALL CITY COuNCIL MEETING
MINuTES APRIL 19, 2012 The Wall City Council met for a special meeting April 19th at 10:00am in the Community Center meeting room. Members present: Dave Hahn, Mayor; Rick Hustead, Councilman; Pete Dunker, Councilman; Bill Leonard, Councilman; Jerry Morgan, Councilman Others present: Carolynn Anderson, Finance Officer; Laurie Hindman, Pennington Co. Courant; Larry Gravatt Members Absent: Stan Anderson, Councilman; Mike Anderson, Councilman Motion by Leonard, second by Hustead to approve the amended agenda with the Transfer Station lease agreement added for discussion. Motion carried. Motion by Dunker, second by Leonard to approve the building permit for Dan & Dawn Hilgenkamp to build a pole barn in Shearer Addition #1, Block 3, Lot 3; pending Public Works Director Clark reviewing for setbacks. Motion carried. There was discussion on who would be responsible for replacing the culvert on the driveway east of the Transfer Station building. The City has a culvert that can be used as a replacement. The consensus was if that culvert is owned by the city and meant to replace the culvert east of the building, then it should be the city’s responsibility to replace it. Larry Gravatt reported to the council the county commissioner’s rejection to approve the Ambulance District resolution. The commissioner’s stated it will need to be a vote of the people to form the Ambulance District. Larry apologized for letting the city down. The council stated he was not at fault; it was understood that it could be rejected. Larry explained the proposed boundaries were based on the Ambulance response area today. He felt it would be disastrous if we would have agreed to automatically exclude portions of the four townships on the southern edge of the proposed district which are Castle Butte, Imlay, Conata and Scenic that did not want to be included in the district. That decision would have mushroomed and other townships would have requested the same treatment. The four townships chose to form a district of their own which is allowed by state statue.

The Looking Glass of Time
80 years ago… At the regular meeting of the Wall Volunteer Fire Department held Thursday, March 7th at the Fire Hall, a resolution was adopted in regular order that the firemen take it upon themselves to sponsor a Paint Up Clean Up Campaign. The time set is from the 15th to the 30th of April, and the town residents are respectfully asked to cooperate. To eliminate unnecessary hazards, everyone is asked to clean up all rubbish and trash on their property before April 30th. At that time the Department will hire a man to clean up any remaining debris, and will assess the cost to those owning the property on which the clean up is made. Any public property will be cleaned up at the expense of the firemen. From the 1930 census bureau the following information has been obtained: the United States has a population of 122,775,046; the total number of retail stores, 1,549,168; the annual per capita sales of the United States made by these retail stores is $407.53. The total number of stores per thousand of population is 12.6; the total retail sales made by the 1,549,168 during 1929 amounted to $50,033,850,792. Now compare these figures with those of South Dakota whose population is $692,849; retail stores, 8,900; annual per capita sales, $378.36; number of stores per thousand of population, $13.0; total retail sales, $262,148,879. 70 years ago… BiRTH: Born to Mr. and Mrs. Edwin Eisenbraun, a girl, Thursday, April 9. The fire alarm sounded Sunday afternoon but the fire was out when the firemen arrived at the Lewis Service Station. Louis Kalkbrenner had been using a blow torch on a car but soon had the fire extinguished without any damage. BiRTH: Born to Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Eisenbraun a girl, Wanda Mary, on Wednesday, April 8. 60 years ago… Ten babies were baptised at the Methodist Easter Service, Sunday morning, by Rev. H. Cowherd. There were also five older children and three adults baptised, and five admitted to the church membership. W.G. Shelton won over Frank Hindman in the only contested office in the Wall election Tuesday. He received 57 votes to 38 for Hindman. Only one candidate filed for the other three alderman posts and present members are, T. E. Hustead in Ward I, C. M. Best in Ward II, Hans Hamann in Ward III, and Howard Connolly for Mayor. The remaining members of the City Council are Dr. G. W. Mills and Wayne Crown. Ralph Wilsey reports that he picked up 300 nice sized bass and bullheads along the bank on one of his dams. The Game and Fish Department stated that the cause of death was lack of vitamins from sunshine because of the heavy covering of snow during the winter. 50 years ago… The sale of the Ralph Ivins Elevator business was consummated late Wednesday night as Ivins signed the necessary papers to turn over his interests to the Tri State Milling Co. Possession by Tri State will take place June 30. Ralph Ivins will continue doing business as usual until the reins are turned over to the new owners. About fifty farmers in this area had attempted to purchase the business but wanted more time to consider the proposition and to see if the necessary capital could be raised. The Wall fire truck was called Friday afternoon to fight the first prairie fire of the season. The fire apparently started from a fire that had been built by fishermen at the old town dam and was backing up in the tall grass near the dam. Harvey Stone reported the grass fire. Kenneth Smith drove out with the truck and a few “Indian Fighters”, and easily put out the creeping fire. No fire siren was blown. The Gate City Bowling Team of Wall won two steak dinners in Sunday’s games at Hot Springs, and in Rapid City. In the morning, the Wall team played on the Audrey Shaffer Lanes in Hot Springs, where they won their first set of steak dinners. In the afternoon, they played the Gate City All-Star Dairy (Rapid City team) on the Robbinsdale Lanes, and won their second steak dinner. The Wall traveling team were C.K. Smith, Lowell Thomas, James Parke, Merlyn Doyle, and Lynn Williams. 40 years ago… Raymond H. Ghering is listed as a member of the Proud Angler Club. He is reported as catching a channel catfish that weighed 18 pounds 7 ounces. The place is
stated as “unknown”. The Courant has reason to believe that the catch was near Wall. J. Merle Prince, Forest Supervisor of the Nebraska National Forest, has presented Kenneth D. Renner, Range Technician, Wall, with a Certificate of Merit and salary increase for work above and beyond that required. Ken began working for the Forest Service on a part-time appointment in 1958. Since that time he has progressed steadily up the career ladder to his present position of responsibility. During this period of time, Ken has been active in many community affairs, contributing of himself unselfishly. A Special Achievement Award was presented to Mrs. Elloween M. Saunders, Clerk-Stenography, at Badlands National Monument by Superintendent Cecil D. Lewis, Tuesday, April 13. Along with a citation for exceeding the normal requirements for her position, Mrs. Saunders was presented an award check by Mr. Lewis in the amount of $200.00 and a memorandum of congratulations from the Director
of the Midwest Region, J. Leonard Volz. Mrs. Saunders has filled various clerical positions at Badlands National Monument for the past 18 years. 30 years ago… Gina Drewitz was on the Dean’s List of the fall semester, 1981, at Orange Coast College, Costa Mesa, California.

20 years ago… The National Grassland Visitor Center received its official groundbreaking in Wall on Wednesday, April 15. The day was bright and sunny, matching the mood of the people who gathered for the event. The 4,400-square-foot center, when completed, will include an information and exhibit area, plus an auditorium. The center will perform promotional, educational, public safety and visitor service functions. The Wall High School track teams participated in two meets last week. They attended the Bennett County Track meet in Martin April 14 and the Black Hills State Relays in Spearfish April 18. 10 years ago… Wall High School celebrated Prom 2002 on Saturday evening. Seniors Jesse Wilson and Katie Johnston were named King and Queen. Earlier this month, Alvin Crown succeeded at what most bowlers only strive for, scoring a perfect
300. In order to accomplish this 300, Alvin threw strikes twelve times in a row. Wall School had a special guest Monday, April 8th.

Tara Novakowski, a park intern from North Carolina, presentedvarious programs to the kindergartners, first, second and third graders.
