Main street update
Food Pantry anticipates Shull and Williams successful food drives named to “Elite 45
The Country Cupboard Food Pantry (CCFP) convened Monday, November 21st for the regularly scheduled monthly meeting. Carol Hoffman, President, presided over the meeting. The CCFP and area churches were able to provide 43 Holiday Baskets to clients and those in need. The Baskets included a chicken or turkey, potatoes, rolls, gravy, vegetable and pie in that were distributed in anticipation of the Thanksgiving Holiday. The clients and the volunteers thank everyone for their generous donations of money, food and time to create the Holiday Food Baskets for their friends, neighbors, strangers and possibly family. Helen Crawford reported that 640 pounds of food were dispersed and 108 pounds was received in donations for October. For November to date there is 790 pounds dispersed and 263 pounds of food donated. This increase in distribution was anticipated for many clients when they were laid off from work. There are several food drives planned; November 23rd the Lutheran Women Phoebes, December 3 is the bag drop off for Girl Scout blue bags door to door drive, December 3rd Gail Eisenbraun is hosting an open house, December 10th the Wall Chamber Pancake supper at Wall Drug and the Wall School is doing food drive by all the classes during December. These food drives are critical in meeting the needs of our area served. In January the CCFP will be able to summarize the receipt and distribution of food for 2011. This will be used to focus food drives and budgeting for 2012. Right now volunteers are gathering and assembling items for the Christmas Bags. These will have a different focus than the Holiday Baskets. They will include personal hygiene items in addition to cookie mix and paper products if available. The Backpack Program has met its financial match to The Greater Wall Foundation grant. Financial donors can specify if they want the financial donation to go to the CCFP fund or the Backpack Program. The CCFP fund uses donations to purchase food from the food bank in Rapid City and other incidental costs to operate the Pantry. Commodity deliveries have dropped severely due to limits in federal funding. This is affecting food pantries nationwide. The CCFP is affected by using more funds towards the purchase of food from the Food Bank in Rapid City to supplement the food drives and individual donations. Winter hours are posted on the door and in the post offices. The hours are every Wednesday 1-4 and the third Saturday 9-11. If you have questions about the CCFP or would like to make a donation please contact Carol Hoffman of Wall or Mike and Marcia West of Philip. Next Board meeting is December 19th at 6:00, Monday at the Food Pantry. The Country Cupboard is an equal opportunity provider.

Ted Schultz with CETEC Engineering reports that the 12” water main and new water services and fire lines are complete and active along Main Street. Main Street traffic will be reopened while work continues on the 5th Avenue east water main. Concrete crews have finished the west side of the 6th Avenue intersection and will begin concrete work on the east side. Crews will shut down for the winter once the 5th Avenue water main is complete and cold weather stops concrete placement. ~Photo Laurie Hindman

Sioux Falls Argus Leader Elite 45 team. Wall Eagles
head football Coach Dennis Rieckman reports the Sioux Falls Argus Leader has been picking the Elite 45 since the early 1980's. The top 45 players and honorable mention squads are named on Thanksgiving Day. The players are selected by the Argus Leader staff from a list of players nominated by their coaches. As coaches we are asked to forward any names from our own team and list five players from opposing teams we felt were worthy of selection. The 45 and honorable mention are chosen from all classes of football, which makes the squad more prestigious then being named to an All State team. This is an honor for Chavis Shull and Jess Williams (Honorable Mention) to be named to the squad and an honor for the football team and Wall to have two players named. It is difficult for small school players to be named to the Elite 45.
Consequences of drinking and driving
Holiday times bring festivities, parties and cheer. Cheer can come in many forms but when the cheer becomes to many glasses of wine, cocktails or beer the consequences can be a Drinking Under Influence (DUI) or a Driving While Intoxicatd (DWI). “The State of South Dakota will issue a ticket if you drive with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of 0.08 percent or higher, regardless of whether your driving ability was actually impaired.” (http://www.nolo.com/legal-encyclopedia/south-dakota-dui-dwi) According to http://duihelp.com/drunk-driving/: “In order to consume roughly an ounce of absolute alcohol, someone would have to drink two 12 ounce cans of beer, or one 8-ounce glass of wine, or a mixed drink containing about two and one half ounces of Scotch or gin. According to the equivalency rule, which states that the effects of alcohol are determined principally by the volume of pure alcohol that is drunk, rather than the type of drink itself, these drinks would be roughly equal in strength and would have approximately the same effects on one’s body. We often talk about alcohol and its effects without truly understanding how alcohol works and where it gets its potency. Alcohol, when it enters the body, is translated into what pharmacologists call blood alcohol concentration (BAC), or blood alcohol level (BAL). This corresponds fairly closely to the percent of one’s blood that is made up of alcohol after it is ingested; a given BAC or BAL level has been described as ‘bathing the brain’ in a given alcohol concentration. There is a relationship between blood alcohol concentration and what we do under the influence. The effects of alcohol are, to a large degree, dose-related: with some variation, the more that is drunk, the greater the effect. The effects of alcohol are influenced by many factors. Some of them are directly physiological. Since alcohol registers its impact via the bloodstream, the SIZE of the drinker influences blood - alcohol concentration; the presence of food and water in the stomach; the speed at which one drinks; the presence of carbonation in an alcoholic beverage; and lastly, sex or gender. (Women, apparently, are more sensitive to the effects of alcohol, and manifest effects at lower doses, or greater effects at the same dosage, than is true of men.)” Pennington County Deputy Dallas Kendrick who has been in the Wall area for the past three years said bigger people can drink more because they have more body mass. He also noted that the body metalizies alcohol at the rate of 0.15 percent an hour and carboyhdrates help absord alcohol. Kendrick also said the people who blow a 0.08 percent didn’t even realize that they were near it. If you have three to four drinks in an hour you will be around 0.08 percent. Now that we have somewhat of an understanding of what alcohol consumption has on the body; how does this affect driving? “In single-vehicle crashes, the relative risk of a driver with BAC between .08 and .10 is at least 11 times greater than for drivers with a BAC of zero, and 52 times greater for young males. Further, many studies have shown that even small amounts of alcohol can impair a person’s ability to drive” as cited from http://www.stopimpaireddriving.o rg/ABCsBACWeb/page2.htm. Typical effects of someone with .02 percent BAC level are: • Some loss of judgment • Relaxation • Slight body warmth • Altered mood. Predictable effects on Driving with a .02 percent BAC level are: •Decline in visual functions (rapid tracking of a moving target) •Decline in ability to perform two tasks at the same time (divided attention). The more a person consumes the typical and predictable effects become more extreme and serious. For someone with a 0.08 percent BAC level the typical effect is: •Muscle coordination becomes poor (e.g., balance, speech, vision, reaction time, and hearing) •Harder to detect danger •Judgment, self-control, reasoning, and memory are impaired. The predictable effects on driving are: •Concentration •Short-term memory loss •Speed control •Reduced information processing capability (e.g., signal detection, visual search) •Impaired perception. And with a .15 percent BAC level the typical effects are •Far less muscle control than normal •Vomiting may occur (unless this level is reached slowly or a person has developed a tolerance for alcohol). Predictable effects on driving are: •Substantial impairment in vehicle control, attention to driving task, and in necessary visual and auditory information process. South Dakota DUI fines and penalties carry for a first drunk driving conviction: •Jail- up to one year possible, license suspension – from 30 days to one year, fine - $1000 and possibly a restricted license. If you have your license suspended in the State of South Dakota for a DUI / DWI offense you will be required to prove financial responsibility and present an SR22 Insurance filing for (3) three years from the conviction date of your case. An SR22 filing is also required for other convictions such as no insurance, reckless driving and vehicular homicide. A second drunk driving conviction is: •Possible jail time – up to oneyear. License suspension from 180 days to one year and a $1000 fine. A possible restricted license, com(continued on page 2)
China trip 2011
Day nine of the Wall Eagles trip to China comes from Alyssa Ermish. The group spent 13 days traveling in China and the surrounding areas. They landed in China on March 22, 2011 and left on April 3, 2011. March 30, 2011 Ermish writes: Well, I’m going to go ahead and apologize for the length and my handwriting in this passage. Got up and had some quick breakfast. We were all relieved we didn’t have to get up super early again. Breakfast wasn’t bad. Super busy though. Elevators are packed just like in Beijing. Takes some patience. Left the hotel right away for the Jade Buddha temple. Arrived in the middle of a funeral. Felt a little sorry and awkward for taking pictures. The family had the Monks help in the funeral. There was singing and chanting, as well as burning of paper money. This is done because the Buddhists believe this money will reach the passed person in the afterlife. They will also burn incense and lotus candles. The lotus candles represent prosperity. We also learned that people tie red ribbons with wishes on them to trees and statues around the temple. If the wish comes true, they come back to the temple to pray. The Buddhist flag is in a rainbow arrangement. Because of this, people will wear different colored sashes during the ceremony to represent Buddhism. Overall a very beautiful tranquil place. The Jade Buddha were beautifully made. After the temple we visited the Yu Yuan garden. Amazing place, so beautiful. It was built by a man with money made from the black market for his parents. Unfortunately they died before it was completed, so he opened it up to the public. Lovely architecture and garden work. If I had the money, I would do it in a heartbeat. Ah, the plants in there are amazing. Plum blossoms and other trees are in bloom right now, so it’s fragrant and lovely. It had its own small pond with bridges and Koi fish. Really wish we could take some Koi back. After a good walk through the garden, we got about a good hour and half of free time in the nearby market. Very cute, fun place. Lots of little booths and stores. Everyone got some great souvenirs. My dad and I got some chopsticks for relatives and a keychain, as well as a wooden flute from a very nice vendor. Not pushy at all. He had a whole assortment of wooden instruments including a wood clarinet and saxophone. Also enjoyed some Chinese starbucks. Very delicious. Tyler didn’t have the same amount of fun for a while. He went and bought what he assumes to be real “Beats” headphones, but were fake and broken. Luckily he got it all back except for $20. Almost forgot!! Before the garden, we went to Nanjing road. So amazing! Walked around with dad, Bruce and Kathy. Found the holy grail right away. McDonald's. Had the best cheeseburger and fries of my life! Not long and the rest of the group found it too, enjoyed a great meal! After that, discovered the Nike store and another awesome sport store. Found the rest of the crew and grabbed some quick Haagen Daaz. Now had Haagen Daaz in two countries. Japan and China! The rest of the girls all went to clothing stores and the guys mostly walked around. Very impressive place. Comparable to time square. After Nanjing and the market, we hit the black market. Everyone had an awesome time!! Never had so much fun shopping before! Definitely the way to shop. Everyone loved bargaining especially the boys. Kaden, Taran and Lane are all pros at it. Had so much fun! We all got amazing things we normally couldn’t afford to buy. Almost bought some Uggs, but decided against it. Kinda regret it... I think almost all of us bought fake sunglasses though. Finished shopping and went to have a good supper. Food was great. Still trying new things all the time. After supper, we stopped at the Burd to take pictures and walk around. Very beautiful and amazing. Also stopped again on Nanjing road at night. So beautiful! Finally got back to the hotel. We were all exhausted! Glad to have ended the day. Sad that this was our last day with Jacky. Oh well. I’m interested to see what Hong Kong will be like. Alyssa

Social Security News
Your Questions, Social Security’s Answers By Kathy Petersen Social Security Public Affairs Specialist in Rapid City Question: My brother had an accident at work last year and is now receiving Social Security disability benefits. His wife and son also receive benefits. Before his accident, he helped support another daughter by a woman he never married. Is the second child entitled to benefits? Answer: The child may qualify for Social Security benefits even though your brother was not married to the second child's mother. The child’s caretaker should file an application on her behalf. For more information, visit us online at www.socialsecurity.gov. Question: Our daughter, who had two young children, passed away two years ago. Her husband is planning to remarry and his fiancé wants to adopt the children after the marriage. Will the children lose the Social Security survivor's benefits that they currently receive? Answer: No. The adoption of a child already entitled to survivor's benefits does not terminate the child's benefits. Question: What does it mean when I see a green address bar on Social Security's website when I am asked to enter personal information? Answer: The green address bar at the top of your screen indicates the website has an extended validation certificate. This means the information you provide to Social Security will be encrypted and the owner of the website has been verified by a certification authority. Extended validation certificates, and their green address bar indicators, provide assurance the website you are using is legitimate and safe, and not a phishing - or fake - site used to trick you into revealing personal information. We recently added extended validation certificates to our secure websites that ask you to enter personal information. You should check for the green address bar and verify the website owner is Social Security before you enter any personal information. Question: I’ve forgotten my password to use online Social Security services. Can I get a new one? Answer: If you have lost or forgotten your password, you will need to start the process for getting a new password. For security reasons, password access to your personal information will be temporarily blocked until you have created another permanent password. Establishing a password involves three steps. You can do this on the Internet: Step 1: To create a permanent password, you need a Password Request Code (PRC). Apply for a Temporary Password Request Code (PRC) at https://secure.ssa.gov/acu/IPS_IN TR/main.jsp Step 2: Wait at least 15 days for your PRC letter to come in the mail. Step 3: Create your permanent password using the directions in your PRC letter. Or you can do this by telephone: • Call us at 1-800-772-1213 (TTY 1-800-325-0778). • Listen carefully to the menu choices and follow the instructions.

Consequences of drinking and driving continued
plete chemical dependency program and proof of insurance. Third offense carries: •Class 6 felony, jail – up to two year and a $2000 fine. License suspension for one year or restricted license and proof of insura n c e . (http://dui.drivinglaws.org/sdakota.php) For continued drunk driving offenses the penalties rise. South Dakota Codified Law 32-23-4,6 states: “Punishment for fourth offense-Revocation of driving privilege-Jail sentence for driving while privilege revoked –Limited driving privilege for certain purposes. If conviction for a violation of §32-23-1 is for a fourth offense, the person is guilty of a Class 5 felon, and the court, in pronouncing sentence, shall order that the drivers license of any person so convicted be revoked for a period of not less that two years from the date sentence is imposed or two years from the date of initial release from imprisonment, whichever is later. In the event the person is returned to imprisonment prior to the completion of the period of driver’s license revocation, time spent imprisoned does not count toward fulfilling the period of revocation. If the person is convicted of driving without a license during that period, the person shall be sentenced to the county jail for not less than twenty days, which sentence may not be suspended. Notwithstanding §23A-27-19, the court retains jurisdiction to modify the conditions of the license revocation for the term of such revocation. Upon the successful completion of a court-approved chemical dependency counseling program, and proof of financial responsibility pursuant to § 32-35-113, the court may permit the person to operate a vehicle for the purposes of employment, 24/7 sobriety testing, attendance at school, or attendance at counseling programs.” For each count thereafter the Felony becomes higher and the punishment more severe. During the month of December the South Dakota Highway Patrol has sobriety checkpoints scheduled in the following counties: Beadle, Brown, Charles Mix, Clay, Codington, Edmunds, Grant, Hughes, Lake, Lawrence, Lincoln, Meade, Mellette, Pennington, Spink, Stanley, Tripp and Yankton. For sobriety checkpoint text message alerts, visit actcivilized.com. So while chugging a glass of cheer remember the consequences of driving and drinking will bring if you are caught behind the wheel during this holiday season.

GFP encourages hunters to register for winter depredation hunts
As winter approaches in South Dakota, the Game, Fish and Parks Department reminds hunters of unique opportunities that may exist later this winter to reduce problem-causing wildlife. GFP has an active Wildlife Damage Management Program that assists landowners with depredation-abatement techniques. However, when other methods are not effective, GFP may use willing hunters to help eliminate wildlife that cause problems for farmers and ranchers. “Winter depredation hunts are a valuable tool that GFP may use to alleviate wildlife damage to landowners’ stored-feed supplies,” said Keith Fisk, Wildlife Damage Program administrator. “South Dakota residents may register for potential depredation hunts for deer, antelope and turkey, starting Dec. 1, 2011.” Hunters can register for depredation hunts at http://gfp.sd.gov/hunting/depredation-hunts.aspx . Fisk encourages hunters to register for counties in their areas. “Depredation hunts are often time-sensitive, and winter weather can sometimes make travel difficult for participating hunters,” Fisk said. “For a successful hunt, GFP needs participating hunters to be available at hunt locations almost immediately. Consequently, I advise hunters to choose locations that are close to home or within close driving distances.” Winter depredation hunts focus on assisting landowners with problem wildlife, but they also provide hunters with additional hunting opportunities after hunting seasons are closed. For more information, please visit the GFP website or contact GFP at 605-223-7660. How did we get into this mess? By Richard P. Holm MD For quite a few years, “we the people” of the US have struggled with how to provide and pay for health care. There is an interesting history that got us here. In this country, during World War II, the Federal Government forced a wage control, thereby bringing companies to compete for the smaller workforce by giving employee health insurance benefits as an alternative to a higher salary. This health insurance trend was enhanced in 1954 by a tax break on businesses that gave employee health insurance. Thus, over the years, after the war, we became a country where about 75% of health care was paid for by employer-based health insurance. But that left the elderly and unemployed without health insurance, and the nation starting arguing about how to fill the gap for these people. In 1965 president Lyndon Johnson pushed through Congress two new programs to pay for health care called Medicare and Medicaid. Some thought then that our problems were solved and everyone was covered. However this evolving system, which is unique to us, different from all the countries of the world, has resulted in two huge problems: first, by 2008 more than 46 million people were not covered, since insurance companies had to compete by not insuring and avoiding high risk and expensive patients. Second, because “the more you do, the more you make” has driven our whole system of health care, therefore more services were provided, which drastically grew hospitals, subspecialist physicians, procedures, pharmaceuticals, and advancing technology. Some of this is good, but it is very expensive. On top of this, our legal tort/liability system has almost encouraged patients to threatened hospitals and physicians with lawsuit for any bad result, whether there was bad practice or not. The consequence has been a culture of health care, which is driven to prescribe the highest level of technology available. And thus we have the most expensive system in the world. In fact we are twice as expensive as the world’s top 15 most costly health care systems. President Obama’s effort with the ACA, also lovingly called Obamacare, is a huge step toward providing insurance coverage for more people, but much more will be needed to control costs. What should the politicians in Washington do next?

The building that houses South Dakota government should be constructed of stone from South Dakota. So believed some South Dakota residents. The commission overseeing the construction of South Dakota’s Capitol had set up a low-bid process that gave no advantage to in-state bidders or materials. On the day bids were scheduled to be opened in 1906, the South Dakota Supreme Court halted proceedings. A complaint had been received from Sioux Falls Board of Trade, acting in support of local quartzite quarries. The state Supreme Court did rule in favor of the commission. The commission decided, though, that new legislation was needed to prevent future incidents. The 1907 Legislature passed a bill providing that all materials to be used in the construction of the capitol “shall be procured in the state of South Dakota … at a cost not exceeding five per cent more than the lowest amount for which material equally good could be procured elsewhere.” General contractor O.H. Olsen was unable to procure the Sioux quartzite stone from East Sioux Falls that he had planned to use for the exterior of the first floor. The base of the Capitol is Ortonville granite from Minnesota. The first-floor exterior walls are of Marquette Raindrop sandstone from Michigan, and the secondand third-floor exterior walls and the lower rotunda are of Bedford limestone from Indiana. The only South Dakota stone used in the capitol would be the field boulders used in the foundation. This moment in South Dakota history is provided by the South Dakota Heritage Fund, the nonprofit fundraising partner of the South Dakota State Historical Society.

Another check-off on the bucket list was a visit to Mt. Lemmon. In last week’s Courant there were many awards and recognitions given to students around the area. Awards given at the annual “Fall Music and Awards” banquet on November 22nd were for music and athletic achievements. Western Junior Home Ec Show and Penn. Co. 4-H Recognition event awarded 4-Hers.

Daren Nachtigall had spent a few days in the Rapid City hospital but is back home at Prairie Village. Hope you are feeling better, Daren. Mary Eide writes the “Grindstone News” for the Pioneer Review. For those of you who do not receive that paper, it bears repeating. She wrote: “I thought I was dreaming or out of my mind as I looked out my window and saw a bull go by with a tire around his neck. So just to make sure, I got in my pickup and went to see and sure enough, a bull with a tire around his neck was out by the shop. So, I called Marvin. He asked me twice what I had just said! I don’t think that he believed me. But he came down to see and with his two dogs, he got the bull in and locked him down in the chute. He got the tire off and it was no easy job. When he turned the bull out, he just started on a dog trot off toward the herd, one happy bull I am sure! Sure glad it was November and not April 1 or Marvin would never have come down. Now this is a true story, it’s not no bull.” Mary, I, for one, enjoyed your story very much. Keep on writing the news. Kim Smoot of Belle Fourche, came to Wall on Monday.

THE GIFT OF RIGHTEOUSNESS
by Cornelius R. Stam St. Paul, in his Epistle to the Romans, refers to those who receive "the abundance of grace" and "the gift of righteousness" (Rom.5:17) which God in love bestows upon all who trust in His Son for salvation. The Bible declares that no man can ever stand uncondemned in the sight of God, the Judge of all, unless he receives righteousness as the gift of God's grace. Quoting from the Psalms, the Apostle says in Romans 3:10; "It is written, there is none righteous, no, not one". This is why Paul pitied those who continued to go about "to establish their own righteousness" (Rom.10:3). He knew that their struggle was utterly futile, that they needed to be saved (See Verse One). Let us thank God that the Lord Jesus Christ took the condemnation and judgment of our sins upon Himself at Calvary so that His righteousness might be imputed to us by grace through faith. Regarding Abraham's justification before God, the Apostle says: "What saith the Scripture? Abraham believed God, and it was counted unto him for righteousness" (Rom.4:3). Abraham's justification, of course, was based on the fact that Christ was to die for sin, but Christ's death is now past; it is an historical fact. Thus righteousness is now proclaimed through Christ and offered to all as a gift. "While we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Rom.5:8). "God hath made Him to be sin for us...that we might be made the righteousness of God in Him" (IICor.5:21). But we must receive this righteousness as a gift, for "to him that worketh not, but believeth on Him that justifieth the ungodly, HIS FAITH is counted for righteousness" (Rom.4:5).

School & Sports Wrestlers ready to take on the challenge
Wrestlers are looking to fill the spots left by last year’s seniors, and lead the Scotties in this year’s action. Twenty-one wrestlers from Philip, Kadoka and Wall make up the squad for 2011-2012. From Wall are Lane Blasius, Raedon Anderson and Cass Lytle. From Kadoka are Clint Stout, Chance Knutson, Jed Brown, Herbie O’Daniel, Logan Ammons, Chandlier Sudbeck, Gavin DeVries, Paul Smiley and Brennan Kukal. Philip is represented by Dakota Bauman, Roger Davis, Grady Carley, Nick Donnelly, Rance Johnson, Blake Crowser, Reed Johnson, Austin Pinney and Tanner Radway. The team lost some key wrestlers in Bodhi Lytle, Clint Nelson, Tucker McDaniel and Travis Nelson. Head coach Matt Donnelly said that will affect the team somewhat, but it will give the younger wrestlers an opportunity to make a name for themselves. The team has retained most of the wrestlers from last year, so, it should be competitive in all their scheduled meets. For those weight classes that there are more than one teammate for, a wrestle off will be held each week to see who represents Philip. In District 7B Donnelly said Custer will be tough, as they have been the past few years Hot Springs lost a lot of good wrestlers, he said, but they will still have several good individuals to fill those spots. Donnelly also looks from Region

4B defending champs, the Stanley County Buffaloes to be a tough squad this year. He said Philip Area has a tough schedule this year. They start out with the tournament in Gordon, Neb., December 11, followed by Dickinson, N.D., the next week in South Dakota, the recently added McCook Central tourney over Christmas break. Donnelly said the team sees a lot of different styles at the Gordon and Dickinson meets, which is good experience for the Philip Area team. He said each school and each state vary in wrestling styles, some go more to the mat while others are more on their feet. Last season the team finished with second places at district and regional action. Individual placers were Brown at 103 pounds, first at both meets. T. Nelson at 135 pounds, Knutson, 160 pounds, and Sudbeck at 125 pounds all placed first in districts and third at regions. Placing third at both events were Reed Johnson at 140 pounds, Radway at 145 pounds and Lytle at 171 pounds. Blasius was third at districts and first at regions in the 130 pound group. C. Nelson, 215 pounds was first at districts and second at regions. At the state level, Blasius and C. Nelson both took fourth place honors and Knutson eighth. Donnelly said he and assistant coaches Keven Morehart and Brandy Knutson appreciate all the support from the parents, teachers and fans that make this three school team work.

Elementary student council holds food drive
Backpack program receives grant from First Interstate Greater Wall Fund

Advisor Karol Patterson for the Elementary Student Council reported that they held a food drive for grades K-12 for their community service project. For two weeks they have gathered canned items for this worthy cause. The council members of sixth graders Sierra Wilson and Mason Sandal; fifth graders Shelby Ruland and Cooper McConaghy; and fourth graders Samantha Duestcher and Andrew Law have been busy with this project. The council also collects Box Tops for Education for a fundraiser project. Some of the benefits from this fundraiser have been buying assignment books for sell every year, tetherball games, four-square game, hopscotch game, equipment for the playground, tubs to store the equipment, cd players, and air pumps for each elementary classroom. They also clean and sweep the playground, along with garbage patrol around the school building. And every year they host a food drive for the Country Cupboard. The members ask that you save Box Top for Educations labels and drop them off at the office any time throughout the year.
Brett Blasius President of the First Interstate Bank and First Interstate Greater Wall Fund along with Dick Johnson present Carol Hoffman with a $2,000 check for the Backpack program. The Country Cupboard received the grant to help 20-30 students from the Wall and Philip area with a backpack filled with nutritious child-friendly foods for them to take home on the weekends, when they might otherwise go hungry. The Country Cupboard is an equal opportunity provider. ~Photo Laurie Hindman
Austin Huether has been busy since the Cross Country ended the end of October. He is getting ready to run at the USATF Junior Olympics National Cross Country meet on Saturday, December 10, in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina. Huether qualified for the Nationals on Saturday, November 5, in Aberdeen at the USATF Dakotas Junior Cross Country meet. He has been running on his own, with his brother Collin, his cousin Tayah, friends, plus practicing basketball for that season to prepare for the 3.1 mile run. Huether also made the Best of the West team that the Rapid City Journal selects, was selected on the All-state team, All Conference and made the Eliterun.com squad as a freshman. Congratulations Austin and best of luck at the Junior Olympics. ~Photo Laurie Hindman

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by Margee Willey Two schedule reminders: The Christmas potluck is Saturday, December 10th at 5:00 p.m. Meat will be provided, bring your table service and food to share. The Wasta Community Hall has been nicely decorated and entertainment and sing-a-long Christmas carols will be part of the evening. Moni Grenstiner, her girls and cousin Kelly Green spent Friday and Sunday afternoons making the hall look very festive! The elementary school program is December 12th at 7:00 p.m. at the Wall school. Anna Lee Humphrey is home recovering from surgery to have a tumor removed from her brain. Surgery went exceptionally well and daughter Marilyn is aiding with her rehab. Daughter Peggy will be here this week. Anna Lee will have further tests this week also. Daren Nachtigall has been hospitalized with a heart attack but is now home recovering well. Daughters Moni and Tammy are making sure he’s well cared for. Sixth grader Madi Grenstiner played in a basketball tournament in New Underwood which was won by the Wall girls’ team on Friday. Eighth grade girls on Saturday gave them experience but not a winning score. Kelly Green is involved in gymnastics again this year. We will wait to hear from her to see how this goes… Diana Turgeon is the new Wasta Post Master Relief. Another friendly face to give postal customers good service. Trains going through Wasta and their engines divide into three categories: Blaster Musician Whisperer Blaster begins his warning at about the Schell Ranch (going west) and continues to about Wanda Hall’s place (LOUDLY)! All conversation stops, we watch the windows vibrate! I love that guy for his enthusiasm — he even waves if you’re outside! The Musician has the ability to sound his whistle with a flute like quality and changes the cadence slightly as he finds his way through town — love that guy for his talent and humor. The Whisperer slips through with his whistle sounding his warning clearly and for safety but calmly and gently — I love that guy too! It was between 3:00 and 4:00 a.m. Monday morning that the whisperer slid through. I had been awake thinking of all I “should” have done already, what I needed to do this week and chiding myself for having been so lazy — you know the routine — all the ‘Shoulds’ and ‘Shouldn’ts’ loom large in the early morning. I should have called around and had neighbors Thanksgiving activities, adventures, and general good times to report. Well, I didn’t but I did penance this morning! Will I promise to do better? Well, I promise to try. A bit about our Thanksgiving in Salt Lake. It was wonderful to have the time with sister Beverly King and her husband Pete Perdue, who live in England six months of the year. Brother Dick King came for a few days from California. So with nieces and nephews and extended family, the holiday was all that one could ask. Good food, good company and an even greater feeling of gratitude this year for the many blessings we have in life and coming home is a big one! How about all of you? Pretty much the same story?

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY
with Dr. James Dobson
Dr. Dobson Answers your Questions
QuESTION: My in-laws like to host big get-togethers with the extended family, but none of us get along. I don't want to offend my spouse or my in-laws, but I'm tired of dealing with all this tension and dissension. Can you suggest a solution? ANSWER: The situation you're describing is extremely common: in home after home, family gatherings that are supposed to be filled with love and warmth end up turning into tense, uncomfortable confrontations. But that doesn't mean that you have to regard this kind of conflict as acceptable or unavoidable. On the contrary, as an intelligent and morally responsible human being, you are capable of making choices that can lead to positive change. One option is to be honest and simply tell your in-laws that, while you appreciate the invitation, you simply aren't going to be able to join the party this time around. You don't need to defend yourself or offer a long explanation. Simply state your position and leave it at that. If the celebration in question is a holiday gathering, you can let the folks know that you've decided to spend a quiet Christmas or Easter with your own immediate family this year. Naturally, you and your
spouse will have to be in agreement on this. A second choice would be to attend the gathering, but make plans to stay at a local hotel rather than in your in-laws' home. You might also explain that while you're looking forward to spending time with them, you have no desire to become involved in a feud with other members of the family. If the party disintegrates into a shouting match, politely excuse yourselves and take refuge in the tranquility of your hotel room. There is a third option. You could approach the next family gathering with an entirely different attitude. Try to see it as a time for reaching out in kindness and grace, extending love to some fairly unlovely people. If you are a believer in Jesus Christ, the Lord can give you the patience and forbearance you need in order to love your relatives sincerely from a pure heart. In the process, you may have a bigger impact in their lives than you suspect. Even if you don't, God
Making Christmas More Meaningful
This past Thanksgiving day, found our immediate family–my wife and I, our two sons, two daughters, our son-in-law and daughterin-law–enjoying a nice leisurely time together after dinner chatting about a number of things, while our grandchildren played together. Eventually, the conversation turned to Christmas and what we would do this year about gift giving. Did we want to exchange names as we did last year? Or did we want to change things a bit? With the economy what is has been, everyone was pretty much in agreement that none of us wanted to feel obligated to spend a lot of money we don’t have, and yet we didn’t want to abandon gift-giving completely. After all, isn’t the true meaning of Christmas all about giving? After exchanging several ideas, one of our daughters expressed the desire to dispense with the gift-giving between the adults, and take the money we would normally spend on that and give a gift to someone less fortunate than us. I won’t say it was an easy thing to decide...after all, haven’t we all become rather used to the idea of receiving gifts? We talked about who we might want to bless, whether it would be someone locally or on the other side of the world, whether we would pool our money or give to separate causes. My purpose in writing today is not to tell you what our family decided to do, thus implying that that is what you and your family should do too. Rather, to cause you to stop and think about how this Christmas can be made simpler and more meaningful for you and your family. I must admit, the following are not my own words. I stumbled upon a website* where I viewed a video with a message so powerful, I cannot begin to improve upon it. So here I have transcribed it for you, in hopes that it will inspire you as much as it did me. We all want Christmas to be more meaningful. But instead it becomes, shop, shop, shop, credit cards, traffic jams, to do lists, useless gifts, then it’s off to church, where we sing Noel, Noel, Noel. Sometimes we’re glad just to survive it. Did you know Americans spend 450 billion dollars on Christmas every year? Every year. So we ask, how did Jesus celebrate? Jesus gave himself...relationally, incarnation, time, space, presence (do you see where this is going?) What if you bought fewer gifts like that sweater she probably won’t like anyway...that random gift certificate...that plastic toy he doesn’t need. Instead of buying that gift, you could give something of incredible value, like your time–time to talk, eat, sled, bake, bike, read, play, create. Make gifts, like when you were a kid. And remember that money you didn’t spend? What if you gave some of it away to the poor, the lonely, the hungry, the sick, the thirsty? Lack of clean water kills more people every day than anything, and here’s the thing...the estimated cost to make clean water available to everyone is 10 billion dollars. Solve the world’s water problems with only a fraction of the 450 billion dollars normally spent on Christmas. Do you see what would happen? In 2006 four churches made up of people just like you and me gave $500,000 to build fresh water wells. In 2007 more churches said, let’s do this thing and three million was given. That’s a lot of love and life all because people spent less on gifts and more on relationships. Let’s face it. Consumerism does not equal happiness. Consumerism does not equal memories. Consumerism does not equal meaning. This year, spend less on presents and give more presence. Christmas began with worship. It still begins with worship. Worship fully. Spend less. Give more. Love all. This is the season of advent. You are free to worship, live, breathe, give, laugh, celebrate, conspire. Enter the story at: www.adventconspiracy.org
can still use the experience to help you grow spiritually. QuESTION: After several years of marriage my husband is still so "attached" to his parents that he regularly places their needs and feelings ahead of mine. I've confronted him about this, but he doesn't see it as a problem. How can I make him see this situation from my viewpoint? ANSWER: God provides us with a model for successful marriage relationships in the Bible. In Genesis 2:24, He says that "a man shall leave his father and mother and cleave to his wife." Jesus repeats this commandment in Matthew 19:4-5 and Mark 10:6-8. The word "cleave" in this context means to be united as one flesh and to establish a new family unit, separate and distinct from the spouses' families of origin. In order for a marriage to be healthy, that new family unit needs to take priority over the husband's family and the wife's family. If your husband is a Christian, he needs to understand that in failing to observe this principle, he is disobeying God's instructions and wreaking havoc on your relationship. The best thing you can do at this point is make an appointment with a qualified Christian family therapist who has experience with marital issues. Tell your husband that you're hoping he will attend the sessions with you, but that if he doesn't you'll be going alone. Even if he's as insensitive to your feelings as you suggest, there's still a chance that he won't like the idea of you discussing your marital problems with a third party without him. If that's the case, he may agree to join you. This may not happen immediately, but if you stick with it, eventually he'll want to accompany you. Even if your husband refuses to go to counseling, your therapist can teach you ways to develop the emotional strength you need to stand up to your husband and his family. This won't be easy, but you'll have a caring ally who can guide you through the process of establishing healthy boundaries.

Ruby Gabriel drove to the Big White School to visit and enjoy lunch with Sage and Ember. In the afternoon, they built two bases. They were to big for one so they used them to have a snowman and a snow woman. Fred and Doris Eisenbraun drove to Wall and Loretta White accompanied them to Brad Gartner’s of Interior to enjoy Thanksgiving dinner. Later in the day, they drove to the Norman Fauske home of rural Wall to join Gene and Alma Crosbie of New Underwood and Margaret Eisenbraun, who were dinner guests there and the group enjoyed a get together, Thanksgiving supper and visiting.

May the Countryside put Delbert Sebade on our prayer list. He had the misfortune to fall requiring hospitalization at the Rapid City Regional Hospital and it is felt he will need therapy before he can come home. Ruby Gabriel enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with her mother Tressa Gabriel in Philip. It seemed like the Lord was kind of busy calling neighbors and friends home again. May we the Countryside send our sympathy and prayers to the families of Williams, Helen Velma Batchelder, Elsie Hultenschmidt, Kenneth Goodsell and Velma DeVries. Monday, the 21st, Ruby Gabriel filled her deer tag with a 4x4 deer on her ranch land. Son Clayton, Linda and Hillery of Rapid City, arrived to the Jesse and Alice parental Baysinger home Wednesday afternoon and were overnight guests. Other Thanksgiving dinner guests were Jim and Bonnie Leiby, Lloyd and Mike, Bob and Jean, Shane and Trista and son Josh, and Jan Housher, all of Rapid City, Linda Haltser of Quinn and friend Bill of Interior. Alice hoped she didn’t miss anyone. John and Alisha Oldenberg of Philip and Melissa of the Nebraska College Technical Agricultural School, were Thanksgiving guests for dinner and over the weekend in the parental Paul and Gwen McConnell home. The Andy Moons went to JT and Jamy’s house and enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner, the secretary at home told me. George and Lorna Moore drove to the Brett and Tammy Prang home of rural Kadoka, and enjoyed Thanksgiving dinner with them and families and kids. Lorna said they had a house full and a very enjoyable day. Chloe and Marcella Baldwin of Belvidere, were Sunday visitors in the grandparental Lorna Moore home and enjoyed horseback riding on this beautiful sun shiny, no wind, good temperature day. Another day closer to spring. Vern and Carol Omdahl traveled to Black Hawk to enjoy Thanksgiving with their daughter and family, Jim and Debbie Chalcraft at Black Hawk. Their son, Kevin of Rapid Valley, Jim Chalcraft’s dad Duane of Hermosa, and Jim’s brother Tom of Rapid Valley were also guests.

John and Jenny were also later visitors in the Shaun and Lynn McKay home, John’s aunt. Thought: Christmas is not a time or season, but a state of mind. Christmas is love in auction. Every time we love, every time we give, it’s Christmas.
Midwest Innocence, Government Malfeasance: Deceit published by Outskirts
Veteran author John Austin Sletten’s newest work is a mystery thriller based on a true story and is a graphic expose of white collar crime and how the FBI misuses their staggering power to barely touch the surface of a case’s seemingly real essence or projected purpose. Author John Austin Sletten announced the release of Deceit, A Novel of Lies, Duplicity and Fraud, published by Outskirts Press. Sletten’s thriller follows a fair haired, golden boy with a degree in accounting from Minnesota to Washington, DC, and a job with the FBI. The young Special Agent tries to be a loyal and dedicated patriot, but turns from the hunter into the hunted and ends up paying the ultimate price for his duplicity in a repulsive and malevolent FBI bureaucracy. When the Naive 27 year old from Minnesota arrives in the nation’s capital, his attention is transfixed by the famous buildings and historical sights. A Midwest patriot at heart, he can’t believe he’s going to be working for the prestigious FBI. Eventually he realizes, thought, he has been hood-winked and has known nothing of what he has really gotten himself into. He is coerced into an audacious undercover operation to break up small business operations teetering on grey lines, or so it seems, and he begins undercover work in an area of white collar crime where no rules have been written, let alone tested, for his activities. Rules of engagement are made up as the FBI scrutiny continues, and an illegal high life spills over form those watched into the daily patterns of the “good guy” agent watching and infiltrating the corruption. The self-serving rigidity of the FBI organization also becomes impossible for the young agent to deal with, and before he knows it, he finds he is in fear of his own life -- from them. Too late he has found out that he knows too much, and he begins to fear the final price he will have to pay for his innocence in this increasingly nefarious world of white collar crime and government abuse. Deceit is available on-line in paperback through Amazon and Barnes and Nobel and at www.outskirtspress.com/bookstore for a maximum trade discount in quantities of 10 or more. Kindle Genre: Mystery/Thriller About the author: John Austin Sletten grew up in a small town, Montevideo, in southwestern Minnesota. He graduated from Concordia College in Moorhead, MN in 1966. After careers in justice, public accounting, and banking, where he worked in Gettysburg, SD, he now enjoys baseball, mathematics, music and writing. The writer had his first work published with the Philadelphia Inquirer Magazine, a feature story entitled “Confessions of a Little League Father.” This piece of writing led to an appearance with Oprah Winfrey. He has been a sports writer for the Princeton Packet and has published many magazine articles. His first book published was The Johnny Callison Story, a biography of the great Philadelphia Phillies baseball player whose career traversed three decades, including the entire decade of the obstreperous sixties. Sletten has also written Along the James, an historical Civil War novel, The Keeper and Uncommon Knowledge. Sletten resides in the Philadelphia area with his wife, Kathy.
