Multi-Agency cooperation results in a successful rescue
Badlands National Park - On Saturday, June 30, 2012, at approximately 10:00 a.m., the Pennington County Communications Center received a visitor report of a 78-year old man who had fallen near the Fossil Exhibit Trail on the Badlands Loop Road located about five miles from the park’s Ben Reifel Visitor Center. Upon arriving at the scene, rescuers were able to determine that the man had fallen more than 40 feet down a steep slope into a hole in a washed out crevasse. The visitor was initially alert and communicative, but due to his injuries and the excessive heat, his condition deteriorated over time. Rangers were able to establish a rope system to successfully lift him to the road. Kadoka Ambulance transported him to the clinic in Philip, SD. Responding units from Interior Fire Department, Kadoka Ambulance, Wall Ambulance and Badlands National Park worked cooperatively on this rescue. Personnel were out for several hours in 95 degree temperatures and humidity in excess of 50-60 percent. Public safety and the safety of the personnel involved in a rescue are paramount. Summer temperatures in Badlands National Park often exceed 105 degrees. Humidity levels waver depending on season, so always be prepared even if you are touring by car. Carrying extra water and food is always a good idea in the remote areas of southwestern South Dakota. Hikers should be prepared with hats, sunscreen, water, electrolyte replacement supplements and food. Always tell someone where you will be hiking, and understand that cell coverage is unreliable. Be aware of your surroundings. Hike smart. Depending on how prepared you are, your trip can be a vacation or a challenge, a revelation or an ordeal.

Gant approves HB 1234 petitions
Secretary of State Jason Gant announced that the petitions submitted for the referral of House Bill 1234 passed the signature certification process. The measure, “an act to provide incentives to teach in critical need areas, to provide for rewards for the best teachers and those teaching in math and science subject areas, to revise certain provisions regarding evaluation of teachers, to create a system for evaluating principals, to distinguish between tenured and nontenured teachers, to revise certain provisions regarding the employment of teachers, and to repeal provisions regarding the teacher compensation assistance program,” was signed by the Governor in March, and was submitted for the ballot by officials of the South Dakota Education Association. “Petition circulators submitted approximately 30,096 signatures to refer the measure to a vote. According to State law and administrative rule, we drew a random sample of 1,505 signature lines to check for validation, which comprised the required audit of five percent of the signatures,” Gant said. “From our sample of 1,505 signatures, we validated 1,289 and invalidated 216 for various reasons, including lack of voter registration, as well as other errors such as blank lines, printing the name and an improper signature date. Invalid signatures comprised 14.35 percent of the total signatures sampled, and under state law, the number of valid signatures sampled was sufficient for the measure to pass validation for the ballot,” Gant said. “If we extrapolate the valid signatures, as per South Dakota Law, they were considered to have 25,777, significantly greater than the 15,855 needed.” According to state law, a referral measure or an initiative petition shall be signed by at least five percent of the total votes cast for Governor in the last gubernatorial election (15,855), and a constitutional amendment requires a petition signed by at least 10 percent of the total votes cast for Governor in the last gubernatorial election (31,709). Gant noted, “The 14.35 percent invalidation rate was among the lowest of any ballot measure proposed for the November 2012 ballot.” Recent measures submitted for the ballot included the one cent sales tax measure which had an 18.66 percent invalidation rate, and last years’ House Bill 1230 measure, which had a 19.74 percent invalidation rate. The referral of House Bill 1234 will be found on the ballot as Referred Law 16, and joins Referred Law 14, Initiated Measure 15, and Constitutional Amendments M, N, O, and P.

National Grasslands Visitor Center reports successful launch of summer programs
Summer is definitely here for the National Grasslands Visitor Center at 708 Main Street in Wall. The Visitor Center recorded an increase of approximately 26 percent in May and 34 percent in June for visitors over the same two months last year. This is the first year Buffalo Gap National Grasslands and the National Grasslands Visitor Center are promoted in the Badlands Visitor Guide. The article helps build “a better team to better serve the public” between the agencies. Highlighted in the article are popular activities on the National Grasslands and at the Visitor Center, including a Junior Ranger Program—grasslands style. The newest program being offered is in conjunction with the Service First Agreement between the Forest Service and the National Park Service. On June 4 and every Monday, Wednesday and Friday since then, the Minuteman Missile National Historic Site and Visitor Center staffs began a tour
in the Theater of the National Grasslands Visitor Center. After short programs on the National Grasslands and the Delta 9 site, visitors then caravan to Exit 116 for completion of the tour. Over 550 visitors have participated in this program since June 4. Tours are scheduled to continue every Monday, Wednesday and Friday at 1:00 p.m. through Sep-
tember 3. Staff at the Visitor Center also conducted two field trips with Wall After School Programs students. These field trips were to Badlands National Park and to the Minuteman Missile National Historic Sites. Future field trips for the Wall After School students include “Fishing With A Ranger” and a “Night Sky Program.”

Sound economy, healthy budget
gaard South Dakota’s state budget is on pace to record a surplus. Under a new culture of fiscal restraint, our state agencies are not spending every dollar they were allocated. This can allow those unspent dollars to be redirected to education, taking care of people, or into savings. As recently reported, we just finished our fiscal year on June 30, with $13 million of appropriated dollars unspent. Meanwhile, our tax revenues have improved due to a sound By: Governor Dennis Daueconomy. South Dakota businesses are expanding because our state has a balanced budget, low taxes, and reasonable regulations. Our state has one of the five fastestgrowing economies in the country, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has called South Dakota a "boom state" for the next decade. The best way to create a stable revenue stream for state government is through a strong, vibrant economy. We want revenues growing because of increased economic activity – not because of increased tax rates. South Dakota's strong economy has led to just that. Although we still await final numbers for June, our tax revenue for the current fiscal year (FY2012) is set to substantially exceed that of 2011. Through 11 months, our General Fund revenue collections are up 7.3 percent from the previous year. When our legislators met earlier this year, they anticipated much of that growth – but our economy is out-performing even their revised estimate. Ongoing state revenues through the end of May are 1.5 percent (or about $16 million) ahead of that revised estimate. Those extra funds won’t be spent, but rather can be used to improve our economy and make investments in future years. Within the next few weeks, we will finalize the year-end figures and will report the status of our revenues, expenditures, and rainy day fund balances for the full fiscal year. All things are pointing in a positive direction. I am proud of the South Dakotans who are working hard, creating jobs, and bringing economic growth to our state. I am proud of the state Legislature, which passed a balanced budget and adopted conservative forecasts for revenue and economic growth. And I am proud of those who work for state government, who have shown fiscal restraint by spending less than they were budgeted, even after they absorbed budget cuts. Because of these efforts, South Dakota has a budget surplus instead of a budget deficit. This is how government should be run. Many other states, as well as the federal government, still have not put their fiscal houses in order, and that failure creates uncertainty that discourages business and hurts their economies. South Dakota will not follow that track. We will continue to make the tough choices – the right choices – to keep our state budget healthy and our economy positioned for further growth.

Letter to the Editor
Letter to the Editor: Pennington County Courant June, 2012 As a long time resident and business owner in Wall; the June 7th article on the First Wall Ambulance, by Laurie Hindman, really caught my eye. I do realize that the article was originally written in May on 1969. My husband, Bill Walsh and I were in the process of moving from California to the state of Washington at that time. The boys were in the Army, Dennis in Vietnam, Dan at Ft. Campbell, Kentucky and daughter Colleen lived in Tacoma, Washington. All of us missed the original article. The Walsh Funeral Home, which Bill and I operated from 1952 until February of 1968 had ambulance service. This ambulance service was for Wall and the surrounding communities. The ambulances were station wagons; that were well equipped for that time period with one man fold down cots, oxygen and medical supplies. The ambulance service was always available at school functions and rodeos at absolutely no charge. The ambulance service to Wall and the community was a service of the Walsh Funeral Home with no tax money or financial support from the city or the community. All the inventory, oxygen, sheets and medical supplies were supplied by us. There were many ambulance calls that were made day and night in all seasons of Western South Dakota weather. The Walsh station wagons were welcomed by many people over the years that were injured in vehicle or farming accidents, or had an illness that required transportation to an area hospital or emergency room. The funeral home was sold in February of 1968, so Wall and the community had to rely on service from Rapid City for some time. I am glad the city of Wall was able to purchase a 1969 station wagon, for an ambulance as the response time from Rapid City was extremely long. I also know that times were changing with first aid training and EMT requirements coming to the community. But, I would like the community to know that ambulance service had been in place for quite some time prior to this purchase. I am glad that we were able to provide a little service to the community. At least all the people did not have to ride in the back seat of a patrol car, while we were there. /s/Kit Walsh McEntee Puyallup, Washington

Social Security News
Baseball (and Social Security) numbers tell stories By Kathy Petersen Social Security Public Affairs Specialist Just as Social Security is an American cornerstone, baseball is America’s pastime. Baseball is an annual rite of summer and a game that is known for its numbers. Joe DiMaggio’s 56-game hitting streak, Cal Ripken’s record 2,632 consecutive games played, and Hank Aaron’s 755 career home runs all tell stories greater than the numbers themselves. Mention any one of these numbers to a baseball fan and you’re sure to call to mind memories and stories. Social Security’s numbers tell stories too. The first lump sum Social Security payment of 17 cents was made to Ernest Ackerman in 1937. The first monthly Social Security check of $22.54 went to Ida May Fuller in January of 1940. This year, about 55 million Americans will receive $760 billion in Social Security benefits. The average monthly benefit for a retired worker in 2012 is $1,229. An estimated 159 million workers are covered under Social Security — that’s 94 percent of the workforce. Fifty percent of workers have no private pension coverage and 31 percent have no savings set aside specifically for retirement. These and other numbers make it easy to appreciate the value of Social Security. Ninety percent of Americans age 65 and older receive Social Security benefits. And among the unmarried, 41 percent rely on Social Security benefits for 90 percent of their income. Social Security is more than just retirement benefits. Disabled workers and their dependents account for 19 percent of the total benefits paid, while survivor’s benefits account for 12 percent. Almost one in four of today’s 20year olds will become disabled before reaching age 67, and the majority of these workers have no long-term disability insurance besides their Social Security coverage. About one in eight of today’s 20-year olds will die before reaching age 67. Baseball and Social Security: America’s pastime and America’s retirement program. Both have long and storied histories and associations with statistics. Learn more about Social Security by visiting www.socialsecurity.gov.

Gathered by Frances Poste Glenn and Betty Alishouse returned home Saturday after spending a few days over the 4th in the Barry and Lori Uecker home in Freeman and taking in the Menno 4th of July parade. They then drove to the Bruce and Ginger Schilder home near Faulkton and attended Orients 125th Anniversary parade on Saturday the 7th. Both parades featured lots of the past, wonderful! Merlin and Betty Crown and Patty Kjerstad went to Mitchell on Wednesday. They took in the 4th of July fireworks at Lake Mitchell, stayed over and took in the Aberdeen Smitty and Mitchell baseball game on Thursday. The teams split, each winning one game. Merlin and Mary Jane Doyle and Brenda Carmichael went to Barb and Joe Croell’s near Sundance for their annual 4th of July party on Saturday. Others there were Josh, Darcy and Max Croell from Gillette; Jeramy Croell and Tasha Tonne from Lawler, IA; Jim Doyle from Spearfish; Steven Doyle and Susan Spent and family from Rapid City; Scott and Angie Dunbar and boys from Summerset and Tony and Marla Venjohn from Piedmont. Games, visiting and good food filled the afternoon. Marvin and Norma Williams of Owanka, hosted a 4th of July supper for Viola and Lyle Williams; their daughter Keilani and grandson Tyler Amo of Aurora, CO. Besides being the birthday of the good ol’ USA, Marvin was celebrating his birthday also. The “Tops in Blue” concert was held at the Civic Center, Rapid City, on the evening of July 2nd. This free annual concert is always exceptionally entertaining and most certainly well attended — the queue of people waiting to get in went the length of the Civic Center, maybe four abreast! Performers are Air Force personnel. Dennis Kennedy, Philip, passed away June 29, 2012; funeral was held on July 3rd. We offer our condolences to the family, expecially to Judy (his sister) and Paul Goldhammer of Wall. On the 4th of July, Edith Paulsen and Frances Poste joined the crowd at Wall Drug at lunch time. It is not uncommon to see people you know from away while there. Diane, Dan, Lisa and Jenna Amundson of Winona, MN, were on their way to Custer to visit Diane’s parents, Jim and Leila Joyce. We wish to say “Happy Birthday” to Pearl Lurz, who turns 99 on July 9th! Congratulations, Pearl. Sherry and Kurth DeLand came from Nebraska and have spent over a week in Wall and the Black Hills. Their daughters, Kara and Kendra, and their families joined them to camp in the Hills.

Some of the Senior Citizen group met last Monday afternoon, not for a meeting but to finish packing boxes for some local military serving overseas. Some people from Wall attended the July 4th celebration at Wasta. Wasn’t too bad a day, weatherwise. Pam Blakesley, her daughter LaLainya and her three girls and Mirinda’s three children came from Amboy, MN, on Thursday to visit family. Saturday evening, they took Dale Keyserto meet Mike and Christa O’Dea and boys in Philip. They were joined by Carol and Al Hodge, and Ruby and Gary Keyser. Dale took them all out to eat supper. Not much rain this past week. Five hundredths in my gauge may be stretching it some. We had a few beautiful days last week, cloudy and rather humid but looks like the 90’s and above are here to stay. Enjoy summer! “Let the words I speak today be soft and tender, for tomorrow I may have to eat them!” ~Anonymous Thanks to all from start to finish for another extra special Wasta 4th of July Celebration. Dorothy Shearer, you earned yet another gold star for talent show success. Paige Cordes, we appreciate you for the time you spent calling to bring out the talent. Tom Carter was another hero. We had a sound system break down and Tom so willingly furnished and worked his during the show. We appreciate all who shared their unique talent and to the au-

dience for welcoming and appreciating each performer. And our “Park Department” for maintaining this lovely little spot that is a huge amount of work! Mary Lewis and Faye Bryan, Billie Hulm, Stanley McNabb were some I’ve seen up here and Dorothy Bathel has been always on hand. Speaking of Bathel, Babe’s words of wisdom came to mind, early Wednesday morning “It Will Work Out, It will All Just Work Out”. Happy Trails!

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by Lloyd & Margee Willey The 4th of July review July 5th on the back porch at the Old Hotel at Wasta: Gathering for early morning coffee before the park clean-up starts this hard working, silly, fun filled family pronounced this 4th of July the best yet. (They always say that). Daughter Alita and niece Jaime, their daughters, Caitlin, Olivia, Sofia and Jade served the food at lunch. They were amazed at the generosity of the people who went through the line and slipped their donations in the jar. And, “everyone was so friendly and so nice”! Well, it is Wasta and Wasta’s friends and neighbors are generous and friendly and nice. We thank you so much! Proceeds will help with getting a new walkway at the community hall. After expenses, we have about $425.00 because of your generosity. Games were fun, kids and probably some innocent bystanders got wet also. Son Scott, son-in-law Ramon and nephew Michael got to be kids again with water balloons and what ever was going on there. I seem to recall our southern neighbor David, with some water balloons and a big grin. Lloyd was everywhere doing whatever. Thanks to all of you who participated, all of you who came to Wasta for some fun in the park. You thought I had forgotten the parade? No way! I love our parade and every year it is perfect as it is. This year some classic beautiful cars were in the line-up, a couple of hot rods (is that an outdated term from the 1950s?) Well, they were great fun to see and to hear! Spiffed up fire trucks, a “mini” from New Underwood’s Jr. Fire Department marchers, horse back riders, a jazzy cart of Wasta Women, all so great and so appreciated. Thank you for your sense of fun. Everyone is appreciated. And somebody from Golden West had to give up their day off. We hope your day off was enhanced! Thank you all for joining in this 16th annual 4th of July parade. Katy Humphrey, you looked wonderful! You all did! It occurred to me that there has always been at least one Humphrey family member in the Wasta parade. And, as well as Deering ranch representative. Now on to the talent show, as in TALENT SHOW! What a great turn-out. It just was another of those perfect “just as it was” nights. After the gale force winds in the early morning, I thought we might all be performing for the Wizard in his land of Oz! Not that I think this group would have turned a hair (no pun intended) had their stage been in Oz). Great talent and good variety put this show about over the top! The finale, with its silliness and unusual twist was fun — really funny!

Arnold Matt___________________________________
and moved in there. In 1948, on February 14, Arnold married Elsie Boydston Arneson at the home of her sister and brotherin-law, Ardis and Justin Speer. They made their home on the Olson place until 1949, when they moved a house onto their land on a basement that Arnold dug with the help of others. Additional buildings were added for poultry, hogs, sheep, cattle, etc. Arnold worked not only on farms and ranches, but also on the missile sites. His life revolved around the Boneita Springs community where he was president of the school board in District #7 for 11 years. He helped with the upkeep of the Boneita Springs School and the Boneita Springs Church and Cemetery. Arnold received an appreciation trophy for his work in the community. He attended his children’s activities at school and 4H. He irrigated land that he leveled himself on the river bottom. Arnold farmed and ranched as well, with the help of his family. He helped his neighbors with branding, carpentry, harvesting or whatever they needed help with, including witching for water with a just right willow branch. Arnold chauffeured his children many times after they went to New Underwood to high school. He was a great and creative do-it-yourselfer. He loved finding all the things to collect for his museum. After his breathing limited his outdoor work, he leased the ranch to sons, Stanley and Kenny Matt, and started doing woodworking. He and Elsie sold his creations at craft shows and out of their home. In 2000, they began spending winters in their present home in New Underwood. In 2004, they moved in permanently and have enjoyed visiting and having friends and families stop in. As his health deteriorated, he became housebound, but still enjoyed company. Arnold was tall in stature and large in the hands, his laugh was loud and infectious, and would make people laugh who may not have even heard the joke! He was always quick to joke and tease. Preceding him in death were his parents; his sister, Gladys, and her husband, Charles Brassfield; his brother, Julius; a daughter-in-law, Vicki Matt; a son-in-law, Wayne Bloom; two grandsons, Justin Matt and Trent Matt; a great-granddaughter, Maci Oyler; two nephews, Dennis Matt and Allen Matt; a niece, Diana Matt-Gehrels; and in-laws, Cecil and Alice Boydston, Ardis Speer and Ruth Boydston. He leaves behind his wife of 64 years, Elsie, and nine children, Marion (Darlene) Matt, Cliff (Judy) Matt, Dixie (Dave) Oyler, Ron (Tonya) Matt, Stanley (Glenda) Matt, Kenny (Cindy) Matt, Marlene (Paul) Montoya, Beverly (Wade) Wootton, Bonnie (Steve) Yearous, 24 grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren. He also leaves his brother, Henry (Annette) Matt, in-laws, Charles (Margaret) Boydston, Justin Speer and Alys Matt. Services were held Saturday, July 7, at the Central Meade County Community Center at Union Center with Pastor Harold Delbridge officiating. Burial was in the Boneita Springs Cemetery. A memorial has been established to the Central Meade County Community Center for air conditioning. Friends may sign Arnold’s online guestbook at www.kirkfuneralhome.com.

Arnold Matt, age 86, passed away peacefully at his home in New Underwood with family at his side on Wednesday, July 4, 2012. He lived, loved and laughed well. Arnold Arthur Matt was born September 22, 1925, in a farm house to Joseph and Selma Martinson Matt in the Elk Vale community north of Rapid City. In 1928, he moved with his parents and siblings, Gladys and Julius to his mother’s homestead in the Boneita Springs area close to the Belle Fourche River. His brother, Henry, was born in 1933. Arnold received his elementary education at four different schools where he had to board with other families that lived closer to the schools. His boyhood was spent helping with chores, swimming in the river, hunting and trapping as well as inventing things to make work and fun easier. When Arnold was 17, he bought land from Ole Olson and dug a well on it by hand. He worked on ranches and farms. Soon after he leased the Ole Olson home place

IT’S yOUR ATTITUDE
by Cornelius R. Stam Many people fear that they will never reach heaven. Some try not to think about it, while others struggle to "be good," hoping that they will finally "make it." Very few, comparatively, are sure of heaven. The real pity is that so few understand what it is that keeps people out of heaven. If you are confused about this, just remember that according to Scripture, it is not one's sins that keep him out of heaven, but his attitude. God has made full provision for our sins. "Christ died for our sins" (I Cor. 15:3) and "we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins according to the riches of His grace" (Eph. 1:7). But God has made no provision for a self-righteous attitude. He gave the Law "that every mouth may be stopped and that all the world may be brought in guilty before God" (Rom. 3:19). Thus He does not want you to keep saying things in your own defense. In fact, before you can know God as your Savior, you must recognize Him as your Judge, righteously condemning you as a sinner. Often, when capital crimes are involved, the defendant's attorney will tell him: "It will be to your advantage to plead guilty and to throw yourself on the mercy of the court." This is especially true of us as sinners in the sight of a holy God. If we will only plead guilty and cast ourselves upon His mercy we will find Him more than gracious, for He has already paid the penalty for our sins Himself. Yes, unsaved friend, it will be to your eternal advantage to plead guilty before God and to cast yourself upon His mercy, "for the wages of sin is death, but THE GIFT OF GOD IS ETERNAL LIFE THROUGH JESUS CHRIST OUR LORD" (Rom. 6:23).
Fish kill affects Roy Lake
Many dead carp have been reported on Roy Lake in northeast South Dakota. Roy Lake State Park personnel are picking up fish daily and keeping swimming beaches within the park clear of fish. Throughout the rest of the lake, lake users will find fish along the shoreline. “We believe the fish kill stems from some condition unique to carp, in combination with the hot weather after their spawning period,” said Mark Ermer, Regional Fisheries Manager for the state Department of Game, Fish and Parks. “No other fish species have been found dead.” Water samples have been taken, and the Department of Health is testing to determine whether there is any health risk. The beaches will be closed Wednesday, July 4, if testing indicates a health problem. A burial pit has been created on Four Mile Game Production Area (GPA) for the disposal of dead fish. The public can access the pit by going three miles east of Lake City on Highway 10 and then turning south at the Six Mile Lake Access road. Continue south for threefourths of a mile and turn west. Public will need to go through the gated entrance of the GPA and follow signs to the pit. Roy Lake State Park is organizing a fish cleanup effort for Friday, July 6. Contact Roy Lake State Park at 605-448-5701 for more information. For more information about the fish kill, contact Regional Fisheries Manager Mark Ermer at 605345-338.

Prevent food-borne illness at summer gatherings
Food safety basics can keep food poisoning from spoiling summer picnics and cookouts, says a state health official. Hot weather is a food safety challenge because bacteria in food multiply faster anytime the temperature is above 40 pF, said Clark Hepper, health protection administrator for the Department of Health. Hepper recommended the following steps for cooking outdoor meals: •Start with hand-washing . Use moist disposable towelettes if soap and water aren’t available. •Refrigerate or freeze leftover food promptly. Don’t let perishable foods sit out longer than two hours; no more than one if temperatures are above 90 pF. •Keep raw foods separate from cooked foods. If a plate held raw meat, don’t use it again without first washing it in hot, soapy water. •Marinate foods in the refrigerator, not on the counter or outdoors, and don't reuse marinade. For use as a sauce, set some aside before adding food. •Use a food thermometer to make sure food is cooked thoroughly. Cook hamburgers to 160∫F and chicken to at least 165∫F. •Keep hot food hot (140∫F or above) and cold food cold(40∫F or below). •Refrigerate or freeze leftover food promptly. Don't let perishable foods sit out longer than two hours; no more than one hour if temperatures are above 90∫F. Food-borne illnesses often go unreported so the actual number of cases is likely higher than what’s reported. In 2011, South Dakota reported nearly 500 cases of the food-borne illnesses E. coli, Salmonella, and Campylobacter. To date in 2012, more than 200 cases of such illnesses have been reported, as well as nearly 100 cases of clostridium perfringens associated with improperly cooked and stored meat at a special event. These diseases can also be spread directly by farm animals and their manure. Symptoms of food-borne illness can include mild or severe diarrhea, fever, vomiting and abdominal pain. Some people may need fluids to prevent dehydration but most will recover at home without medication. Learn more on the department site, http://doh.sd.gov/HealthProtection/, or the FDA site at h t t p : / / w w w. f d a . g o v / F o r C o n sumers/ConsumerUpdates/ucm09 4562.htm.

GFP urges public to limit travel on agency lands due to fire danger
The South Dakota Game, Fish and Parks Department is cautioning the public to keep fire danger in mind when accessing lands owned and managed by the agency. In western South Dakota, where several forest and prairie fires have occurred, GFP has closed several vehicle-access trails in Game Production Areas. Closure signs are being posted at those trails, and some vehicle-access trails will even be gated to indicate closure. “We really feel this is a prudent action to take in light of the extreme fire danger and burn bans that are being put in place across most of western South Dakota,” said Mike Kintigh, GFP regional supervisor in Rapid City. “Closing public-use areas is a last resort, but given the time of year when there is limited public use of these areas anyway, our focus and concern is to ensure protection for the important wildlife habitats on these Game Production Areas.” Access trails on other Game Production Areas in the state will remain open to public use for the time being, but extreme caution is advised for people who use those lands. “We are currently allowing vehicle access on the trails of our other Game Production Areas,” said Emmett Keyser, assistant director of the GFP Wildlife Division. “But we urge you to park your vehicle at the entrance and access those lands on foot only.” Keyser also reminds the public that state law prohibits people from discharging fireworks on any lands owned or leased by the Department of Game, Fish and Parks. In addition, it is illegal to have an open fire on any public lands except in established fireplaces. Finally, Keyser encourages people who use public lands to limit any activities with the potential to accidentally start fires. It also is suggested that people who use those public areas carry firefighting equipment, such as water and shovels, so any fires that start can be quickly extinguished.

The Looking Glass of Time
80 years ago… Wall will celebrate its 25th birthday with its usual free attractions which will start on Saturday and last over to Sunday, July 9 and 10. Kittenball, races for the children, baseball, barbecue and band concert will feature this years celebration. Since yesterday, July 6th, the postage rate for letters is now three cents for each ounce or fraction thereof. The rate on air mail postage has also been increased. The rate now is eight cents for the first ounce and 10 cents for each additional ounce. The Frank Market home west of Quinn, took fire and burned to the ground, Friday afternoon. Mrs. McCold and children were at home alone. Mrs. McCold was unable to extinguish the fire and had no way to call for help so removed as many things from the house as possible. She succeeded in getting the piano out by herself. 70 years ago… Wall observes along with its 35th birthday celebration, July 10, the dedication of their new hospital. Through the generous donations of money and labor the community now has a modern wellequipped hospital. The property has been given by the citizens to the Town of Wall. The three story building with a full basement, has the first two floors equipped to take care of sixteen patients. The top floor will be arranged for the nurses quarters. Wall is all set for a big day tomorrow, its 35th birthday. The dedication of the nearly completed hospital will be one of the features of the day. The Curl Amusement Company will set up their rides and carnival stands on Main Street, with their ferris wheel probably on the lot just north of the Wall Theatre. Wm. Harnisch reports that someone traded rear vision mirrors with him, but without his consent. It seems that Bill had his five dollar federal use stamp pasted on his rear vision mirror, and the stamp as well as the mirror was taken. He says that it occurred in Rapid City on Thursday or in Wall, Friday night. 60 years ago… “The noisiest Fourth of July that Wall has ever experienced,” is the comment made by many concerning the two-day legal firecracker celebration here. Six merchants were well stocked and kept an inexhaustible supply of noise makers for their customers. Only a few minor mishaps occurred. Several youngsters received burned fingers. Three grown men were hauled into court for disturbing the peace with exploding fire crackers late at night. The fire department was called out during the afternoon of the Fourth to extinguish a fire in a car sitting toward the back of the L. J. Dixon station. It is thought that a firecracker was the cause. The Model A Ford had been sitting there for several days and belongs to Merl Flatt. The interior cushions and upholstery were burned. The Donkey baseball game sponsored by the Wall Legion attracted a fair crowd. Other entertainment enjoyed by Wall folks included “Show Boat” at the Riata Theatre; a ball game, Wall-Quinn vs. Rapid City; a dance at Quinn; and fireworks and a dance at Creighton. The local ball team was again beat by the Philip nine when they played at Philip, Sunday. The score was Wall-Quinn, 2 and Philip, 12. The fire department was called to the Glenn Phillips home (recently purchased by Gale Dartt) Tuesday morning when a paper fire started back of the stove. Mrs. Lila Johnson was successful in getting the fire stamped out before firemen arrived and little or no damage resulted. Mrs. Glenn Phillips was in Denver, Colorado at the time. She and her husband returned to Wall, last evening. 50 years ago… Building a swimming pool in Wall has been temporarily held up for lack of proper site on which to place. It is hoped that by Thursday the 19th of July when the Committee for the Swimming Pool meets again someone will have come up with a good idea of where to put the pool where the cost of acquiring the land is not prohibitive and where it will be agreeable to everyone. Wall’s fifty-fifth birthday was observed Saturday and Sunday with its usual celebration — a rodeo and carnival. Curls Amusement Company furnished for all groups of people. There was a wide variety of rides for the young fry as well as for those of the older group who were looking for thrills. Along with the rides there were numerous stands where celebrants could try their skill or luck. Even the 22 foot snake attracted a steady line of customers. Wall took in $450 from the Carnival and $250 from the dance. Billie Hamann and Harold Foell left Monday evening by the bus for Omaha, they are planning a three year stint in the Navy. Pedro News: The temperature was high in the 70s early this morning but now there is a cool breeze from the northeast so maybe it will be a pretty nice day after all. We had some showers in the night but not much rain. 40 years ago… Delbert Sebade, chairman of the Rapid City Flood Disaster Fund drive for Wall, reports total receipts of $2,761.13. Of this amount, $1,227.13 was given directly to the Rapid City Flood Disaster Fund, while the remainder was credited to the following organizations: Lutherans $480, Salvation Army $320, Red Cross $302, American Legion $203, Lions Club $97, Methodist $27, and Bishop Fund $10. The main part of Wall’s annual celebration Saturday and Sunday was the rodeo, and the main part of the crowds at the rodeo were tourists. All three shows were well attended. The Carnival was small but clean and neat. They were located away from the crowd and their business was very meager. The annual parade with its mixup in starting time did get underway by 11:00 and was well received. There were only a few elaborately decorated floats but the variety made up for this lack of frills. The Shriners in their bright costumes, the burrow troopers, clowns, and antique cars and four bands plus the horses gave the parade spice. An early morning fire Saturday caused very extensive damage to the interior and completely ruined the merchandise of the Wall Liquor Store, usually know as the Wall Pool Hall. Butch Kitterman, making his early morning deliveries, noted smoke coming from the ventilator opening and alerted the owner, Wesley Wilburn, and turned in the fire alarm. When Wilburn unlocked and opened the door of his store, the heat that poured out resembled a blast furnace. The whole interior was at kindling temperature. When oxygen again reached the interior, the building became a big ball of fire. However water quickly brought the fire under control without the blaze reaching through the ceiling or walls. An electrical short has been attributed as the cause of the fire. Alfred Strandell had the misfortune of hitting a deer east of the Wasta Rest Area on I-90 Sunday evening. His car received considerable damage and Game Warden Lee Vanderbush was called to dispose of the deer. Patrolman Kenneth Wernke says about 60 deer have been killed by cars in this area. Cherrie Denke won the 16 inch TV and Robert Albin won the 12” set at the Wall Celebration Rodeo last weekend. The TV sets were raffled off by the Wall Rodeo Association. 30 years ago… It wasn’t quite all parades and rodeos at Wall’s 75th Anniversary celebration last weekend, as three lawmen, Jerry Miller, Roy Taylor and Bill Leonard, were injured in a 1:30 a.m. brawl on Main Street. According to Police Chief Norm Klingbile, the deputies were injured when they tried to arrest a man who broke a mirror on a pickup. When they attempted to make the arrest, several people in the crowd jumped them, hitting and kicking the three men. Miller was knocked unconscious and received a head injury. He was taken to Rapid City Regional Hospital, where he received stitches in the back of the head and was later released. Klingbile said that Leonard, who was a backup officer during the celebration, suffered several broken ribs and Taylor was hit in the head and received some bruises. The incident occurred after the Tommy Cash street dance was over and the bars on Main Street had closed, leaving a large group of people out on the street. As of Monday afternoon, no one had been charged. Klingbile added that both local and out of town citizens were allegedly involved. Gambles-G&W Hot Dogs and Different Strokes each won a game in a doubleheader on June 28. In the first game, which was a makeup game, the Hot Dogs beat Different Strokes by the score of 21-14. Different Strokes won the second game, 23-11. The Outlaws won two games on July 2 and upped their record to 10-3. They defeated Kittermans by the score of 27-8 in the first game. The Outlaws also defeated De’s Oil in a close game with the final score 9-8. The Hairraisers defeated Different Strokes, 12-4, on July 5. 20 years ago… The Three Little Pigs at the Wall Drug Store grew into Fat Sows in just three weeks. They gained so much weight they had to be shipped back to the Curtis Willuweit Ranch last Friday, July 3. Vicky Willuweit reported that they have been despondent since returning home. They were replaced by three little runts that Curt said need fattening up. Wall Drug Backyard personnel said they will turn these runts into Champion Hogs! The Wall Midget A youth baseball team played against the Midland Midget A’s on July 2. Wall lost to Midland by the score of 10 to 4. On July 2, the Wall Midget B’s played the Midland Midget B’s in a wild game. Wall lost the game 18-12. On June 29th, the Wall Teener baseball team traveled to Edgemont to play a doubleheader. Wall lost the first game by a score of 156. In the second game of the day, Wall won by a score of 6-3. The Wall Amoco’s new building has gone up and the structure is almost enclosed. Three fuel tanks have been installed in the ground on the east side of the building. The fiberglass tanks are two 12,000 gallon and one 8,000 gallon tank. They will be ready to pour the footing and the pump islands this week. Also the driveway will be poured before the installation of the Canopy which is scheduled to arrive in two weeks. All of the piping for the building is fiberglass. All interior work is still to be com-
pleted. 10 years ago… On Wednesday, July 3rd, a grass fire broke out about 4:00 p.m. in the afternoon, on the land of Marvin Botz. The firemen were paged out and headed south. With the combination of 11 different fire departments and local residents and neighbors, the fire was contained, with it only burning 100 acres. The fire departments came from Rapid Valley, EAFB, Box Elder, Wasta, Interior Badlands National Park and State Division of Forestry, New Underwood, Philip, Quinn, Search and Rescue, Slurry Bomber from Rapid City and Dale Patterson’s crop spraying plane. Kitterman Redi-Mix was also on hand to pull the hay bales apart with their road grader so they would burn faster. The fire, which started from a rock hitting the conditioner on the swather and gave off a spark, came right up to the buildings that
are around the Botz place. Wall Drug is fully operational for the 2002 tourist season now that its back cafe is up and going. Since the drug store’s fire back in May, it has just been operating out of its front cafe only and using its side counter as well, to assist with the many buses and travelers that have stopped already this season. While the back cafe has been open for seating, the actual kitchen area did not officially open for business until last Wednesday and was one of the last major projects left after the immense clean-up that followed the May fire. BIRTH: Born May 1, 2002 to Brian and Lindsay Wilson, Sparks, Nev., a son, Dylon Mathew. Little Dylon weighed 7 lbs. 9 oz. and measured 19 3/4 inches long and joins big sister Makenzie at home. Proud grandparents are Kenneth and Janet Wilson, Elm Springs and Marcus and Terry Brown, Sparks.

FOCUS ON THE FAMILY
with Dr. James Dobson
Dr. Dobson Answers your Questions
QueSTION: We haven't been married long, and we're still trying to work out some of the practical nuts-and-bolts aspects of our relationship. In your opinion, which one of us should be the main breadwinner in the family? ANSWeR: We take the view that there is no "right" or "wrong" answer to this question — at least not in the early days of a marriage, when children have not yet made an appearance on the scene. If there are no kids in your house, there may be more than one acceptable way to approach the challenge of earning enough money to pay the monthly bills. This is a decision that each married couple needs to make for themselves, with prayer and consideration of their own unique circumstances. The important thing is to be clear with one another about what you want. If each spouse keeps quiet about his or her personal dreams and desires, the result may be misunderstanding and resentment. Have you and your spouse talked about who should earn the money, or the bulk of the money, needed to support your household? Have you discussed how each of you would feel about one spouse earning much more than the other, or what would happen if one of you couldn't work, or whether one spouse's employment could require both of you to move to a different part of the country? Now is the time to put these thoughts and feelings into words. As you have this discussion, remember that things can change as you move from one stage of life to another. Unexpected pregnancy, illness, loss of a job or other unforeseen circumstances require flexibility. That usually means a willingness to sacrifice, compromise and adjust one's personal ambitions or goals. So sit "loose in the saddle" as you launch your marriage and family, and be open to new patterns that may be better suited to a shifting landscape. Remember that you're committed to one another, not to a particular economic model. If and when children come into the picture, remember that their needs must be your number one priority. Here at Focus on the Family we have always believed that it is best for a mother (especially of young children) to remain at home if she can; but we also recognize that this is not always possible. Financial pressures, marital disruptions, a disabled spouse — these are just some of the factors that may force wives and mothers into the workplace. Furthermore, there are other situations where women have opted to work for reasons of their own, and we feel this is a highly personal choice that they must prayerfully make. Our desire is simply to underscore potential implications and consequences of that decision. If you feel you need help sorting through these ideas and applying these suggestions to your situation, please feel free to give our Counseling Department a call. Our staff counselors will be happy to listen to your concerns and offer their perspective over the phone. QueSTION: When health insurance is available to both spouses, is it wise for each to sign up for coverage? ANSWeR: Sometimes in twoincome families both husband and wife will purchase employee-sponsored medical insurance coverage for themselves and their dependents, thinking that they have twice the coverage and therefore have gained some type of advantage. That may not be the case. Medical insurance has what is called "coordination of benefits." For example, consider a two-earner family with both spouses covered by insurance. If a child breaks his arm, only one insurance company may pay; it is wise to check with both plans. If one spouse has a good health insurance policy covering dependents through their company, our advice would be for the other spouse to save the money he or she is paying for dependent coverage. That said, we should probably add a few general thoughts on the
importance of health insurance. With little reservation, we can say that health insurance is the most important insurance policy you can have. The likelihood that you or a family member will need care is almost certain, and the cost of that care is extremely high. Even a minor outpatient surgery can result in expensive bills from many different sources. For example, the broken arm referenced above could easily cost $5,000.00. Another reason health insurance is almost a necessity is that insurers have arranged for discounts from health care providers, so that the actual cost of a procedure, after applying the contractual adjustment with the insurance carrier, is less than the cost to someone without insurance. From a tax standpoint, too, medical insurance is an outstanding benefit. The premium that your employer pays for medical, dental and vision coverage for you and your family is not considered taxable income, so it's better than an increase in salary from a tax viewpoint. In addition, any portion of the health care insurance premium that you pay may be taken from pre-tax dollars.
Being part of a large group — your fellow employees — allows you to purchase a better medical insurance policy at cheaper rates than you could purchase on your own. With medical expenses at an all-time high, the risk of even an intermediate-term illness is too great for any individual or family to bear. Even though you may pay for a portion of your own insurance, your employer is probably doing the best job it can to provide you the best coverage at a reasonable cost. Also note that if you leave your present employer, you may be able to continue with your current insurance company for up to eighteen months (though in most cases you're responsible for the entire premium) until you find employment at another company that offers medical insurance as part of the COBRA provisions. All to say that we're pleased to know you're taking advantage of the health care benefits offered by your employer. In light of the question you've raised, however, we want to urge you to be wise and knowledgeable in the way you
avail yourself of those benefits. Stay informed. Take time to educate yourself about the details of your company's plan. Review your beneficiary choices frequently — they don't change automatically when you have another child or when other family circumstances change. And don't assume that your HR Department will take care of everything for you. As a matter of fact, the trend is toward more and more choice (and the burden of making the choice) to fall upon the employee. So be proactive.
