Wall City Council approves to raise sewer rates
by Laurie Hindman Wall City Council met on Monday, July 9 at 6:30 p.m. Councilman Pete Dunker was absent for the meeting. Mayor Dave Hahn asked for approval for the agenda in which Finance Officer Carolynn Anderson asked for a building permit to be added to the agenda. Council gave their approval. Lt. Kraig Wood with the Pennington County Sheriff ’s Department informed the council the city hours were met and the Sheriff ’s Department will have extra patrol in Wall for the celebration. Skyler Anders who would like to hold water aerobics at the Wall Pool related she is unable to obtain liability insurance at this time. Council approved to hire Anders as a contract employee so she will fall under the city insurance policy for this summer. Badlands National Park Superintendent Eric Brunnemann pitched an idea to the council members. Since Wall is a Gateway Community to the badlands, Brunnemann would like to put banners up around town to promote certain events at the park. Council member Rick Hustead was opposed to the idea, he felt that banners on main street should be about Wall since tourism is a fragile business. Brunnemann said, “he doesn’t want to replace all the banners perhaps every other one or in other spots around the town.” Hahn asked Brunnemann to put something together for the next city council meeting. Council approved the ambulance door proposal. Building permits for Jim Fremstad and Darin and Rachel Buhmann were approved. Council approved the noise permit and to waive the fee for the Wall Celebration Committee. At the last council meeting it was discussed as to what type of dog breeds are not covered under the city liability insurance. C. Anderson has talked to the insurance company and relayed their message to the council that there isn’t one specific type of breed that is more vicious, but any dog can become vicious. Council will review and update their policy on dog breeds within the city limits. Water at the golf course, South Boulevard, City park and used meters was reviewed. Since there isn’t a meter at the golf course on the south side of the clubhouse and between the clubhouse and maintenance shop it will be put on the budget for next year. Water at the South Boulevard will be cut back to a half-hour each day. Public Works Director Jeff Clark has been able to salvage some of the used meters to use around town. The airport project which has been on and off for the past year is back on again and the new building should be put up by this fall according to Hahn. The cost to Wall will be around three to four thousand dollars. The city will get back all the money they have spent on engineering cost for the project. Librarian Wendy Brunnemann has been out of the library with health issues for the past two weeks. The council approved a board member to fill in for her and pay her $9.00 per hour retroactive when she started to fill in. Jim Kitterman has turned in hours for a March fire. The fire department has been to several fires this year and will receive $16,000 for responding to them. Council approved a motion to pay those hours retroactive to March 1. A request to have a concession trailer in the city park for tailgating at home football games was denied. Street signs on the west side of the railroad tracks will have a W put on and the street signs on the east side of the tracks will be left as is. A motion to reject Silver Oak Tower request to block main street was approved. Second reading of Ordinance 123: Commercial building permit was approved. Second reading of Ordinance 124; Residential building permit was also approved. Council approved a plat to rezone property on James Avenue. C. Anderson asked for a special meeting if the election for the Ambulance District passes.

First West Nile detections reported
South Dakota is reporting its first West Nile virus (WNV) detections of the season, a positive mosquito pool in Brookings County and one in Brown County. “This will be the eleventh year of West Nile transmission in South Dakota and it may be tempting to be complacent,” said Dr. Lon Kightlinger, State Epidemiologist for the Department of Health. “We need to remember that it can be a serious, even fatal illness, and get in the habit of protecting ourselves by using repellents, limiting exposure, and getting rid of mosquito breeding spots.” To prevent mosquito bites and reduce the risk of WNV, the department recommends the following personal precautions: •Use mosquito repellents (DEET, picaridin, oil of lemon eucalyptus, or IR3535) and limit exposure by covering up. •Limit time outdoors from dusk to midnight when Culex mosquitoes are most active. •Get rid of standing water that gives mosquitoes a place to breed. •Support local mosquito control efforts. In South Dakota, peak transmission of WNV is July through early September. South Dakota has reported 1,759 cases, including 26 deaths, since its first case in 2002. Personal precautions are especially important for those at high risk for WNV – people over 50, pregnant women, transplant patients, individuals with diabetes or high blood pressure, and those with a history of alcohol abuse. People with a severe or unusual headache should see their physician. Find WNV prevention information on the Web at http://westnile.sd.gov. Information is also available from the SDSU Cooperative Extension Service at http://www.sdstate.edu/sdces/issues/wnv.cfm

Wall Writers Group to meet July 21
The next meeting of the Wall Writers Group is scheduled for Saturday, July 21. The meeting date was changed due to the Wall Celebration. At the June meeting writers examined using “first lines.” The idea came from the website “thefirstline.com” where the first line for a story is used as a topic. Some of the first lines the Wall writers used were: “I’ll be back in a minute,” “All my dad said was,” and “Notes from a….” The results in these assignments were as varied and exciting as the participants doing the writings. For the July 21 meeting, the (a) topic choice is from the website http://thefirstline.com. This topic is for the Fall 2012 competition on this website. (a) A light snow was falling as Charlie Reardon left the diner and made his way down Madison Street. Or chose the second topic, also to be used as a first line in writing: (b) And, the dog laid down beside…. On Saturday, July 21, starting at 9:30 a.m. at 416 Sixth Avenue in Wall, the writers will share the results of either of these suggested writing topics or bring something else they have written. Anyone of any writing ability and interest in writing is welcome to participate. Any questions, please call Dave 279-2952 or Linda (605) 786-6937.

Drought meetings July 23 at regional Extension centers
Drought meetings will be held July 23 at each of the regional South Dakota State University Extension centers.

For starting times and other information, email robert.fanning@ sdstate.edu, call 842-1267 or 7304072, or visit iGrow: http:// igrow.org.

Little Cowboys and Cowgirls entered in the Stick Horse Rodeo sponsored by Super 8 underneath the Wall Celebration Tent: they came from their hometowns of Platte, Parker, Rapid City, Wall, Wasta and Quinn South Dakota. They came with their stick horses, chaps, boots, spurs, hats, and were given a back number. If they could not get their stick horse loaded they had stick horses for them to ride. There were two events they could enter, barrel racing where they raced around three barrels and had their name annouced by Celebration Chairperson Dustin Curr. The second event was the Wild Ride where they could ride their stick horse for six seconds and they could buck, stomp, kick, wave, or do what ever they wanted to do. After the event was finished they were called up by name to receive a particpation prize. The Celebration Committee also had water ballon fights, sand box, and bubbles for the kids to play in. What a fun day for all!!

After much discussion over the number of days high school students can miss, the 7-12 Handbook was approved. Cross Country schedule was handed out to board members. Mary Williams is having an issue with meets falling on school days and the coach being absent from her classroom during that time. Rieckman will invite the Athletic Director and Cross Country Coach to the next board meeting to discuss the issue. Rieckman passed around a quote that was received to fix the hail damages and do some remodeling to the Big White School. The quote did not include taking the porch off on the east side but Rieckman felt the cost would be under $200. Todd Trask wants the school to be fixed-up properly and make sure that house wrap is used. Rieckman will call Judy Goldhammer to have an insurance adjustor come up and get a quote for the damages. The board approved to enter into executive session for the purpose of discussing personnel according to SDCL 1-25.2 The board entered out of executive session where Rieckman recognized Wayne Shull for being named 9A Assistant Football Coach of the Year, John Hess for being named Regional Girls Basketball Coach of the Year and Mark Ammann Regional Girls and Boys Golf Coach of the Year. The next school board meeting will be held on Tuesday, August 14 at 7:00 p.m. in the school library. With no other business the meeting was adjourned.
Fire danger remains high
The U.S. Forest Service reminds the public that very high fire danger remains across the Black Hills area and everyone can help prevent human-caused fires by abiding by the restrictions that are in place. The Plains are reporting very high to extreme fire danger. Local, state, and federal officials are meeting each week to discuss the need for fire restrictions as the season continues. They consider factors such as current and predicted weather, fuel moisture, fire activity, and available resources to determine whether fire restrictions need to be revised or maintained at the current level. Craig Bobzien, Black Hills National Forest Supervisor, says, “The restrictions will remain in place until fire managers deem it is appropriate to rescind them.” He adds, “We understand this may be inconvenient for residents and visitors, especially those wishing to enjoy a campfire. However, given the hot gusty winds and this year’s fire activity, we need to take necessary precautions to prevent a human-caused fire from starting and growing rapidly.” While there have been occasional thunderstorms and showers the past week, these are generally isolated in nature and not widespread enough to lessen the overall fire danger. According to the National Weather Service, the potential for large fire growth remains over the area the early part of this week. Fire restrictions are in effect for the Black Hills Forest Fire Protection District, which encompasses the following counties: Lawrence, Meade, Pennington, Custer, and Fall River. Campfires in federal, state, local and private campgrounds are prohibited during the duration of these restrictions. The definition of campfires includes: b uilding, maintaining, attending or using a fire, campfire, charcoal grill, coal, wood burning stove or sheepherder’s stove. Additional restrictions are in place on the Black Hills National Forest. For more information, please call 605-673-9200.

July 20-21-22-23:
Governor announces driver licensing improvement plan
Gov. Dennis Daugaard announced recently a six-part Driver Licensing Improvement Plan to address long wait times in the Sioux Falls area and to make the Driver Licensing system more efficient and convenient to customers statewide. A combination of staff shortages and the traditionally busy summer season created longer wait times than normal at driver exam stations in Sioux Falls. Governor Daugaard said state government has an obligation to serve customers well, and aggressive action is needed to bring wait times for applicants to acceptable levels. “Two hours is too long to wait,’’ the Governor said. “Our Driver Licensing staff is working hard, but we need to step up and get them the tools they need to take care of the problem. This plan does that.’’ The six parts of the Driver Licensing Improvement Plan are: 1. Extended hours of operation – Extending special hours of operation at the two Sioux Falls exam stations to each stay open until 7 p.m. 2. Employee overtime – Authorizing overtime as needed to respond to the increased traffic at stations during times of staff shortages. 3. Hiring and training – Instituting aggressive hiring and training programs to fill vacancies. 4. Advance scheduling – Announcing the development of a system allowing citizens to schedule their driver license and non-driver ID card renewals and duplicate licenses. 5. Self-service kiosks – Signing a contract for the installation of selfservice kiosks at several exam stations. 6. Temporary licenses – Urging citizens in immediate need of renewal services but unable or unwilling to wait in line to call the Driver Licensing Program in Pierre to obtain a temporary license, good for six months, under the current process. The number to call is 1-800-952-3696. Two parts of the initiative – advance scheduling and self-service kiosks, will take time to implement, but the other efforts should reduce wait times soon, according to Cindy Gerber, Director of the Driver Licensing Program. The advance scheduling project should be operational within a few weeks and will allow citizens to go online to schedule appointments for renewals and duplicate licenses. A similar program already in operation allows for scheduled driving tests in several of the state’s larger cities. The expansion to scheduled renewals will begin in Sioux Falls and Rapid City on a trial basis and will be expanded as warranted. This week, a $1.2 million contract was signed to install, program and maintain the self-service kiosks in several exam stations across the state, including Sioux Falls. A federal grant funds the contract, which will be fulfilled in the coming months. The kiosks will allow citizens to complete part of the application or renewal process themselves. Customers still will need to see an examiner for a vision test, to have documents checked and to pay necessary fees, but they will be able to fill out the application and take the driver license photograph before visiting the examiner. That will shorten the time each customer is with an examiner. Sioux Falls currently has two exam stations. The station at 3716 S. Westport Avenue is a full-service site and will be open until 7 p.m. on weekdays. The station at 415 N. Dakota Avenue, which offers renewal services, will also be open until 7 p.m., as soon as the change is approved by the county.

Jim and Linda Peterson of Union Center, celebrated their 45th anniversary on July 13th at the Union Center church. They were married September 30, 1967, at White Owl. They could have all their family at home at this time (minus some spouses) so celebrated early. Wade and his family live at Enning; Verna and her four children came from Connecticut; Cheri and her three came from Kansas; Elida and her four children came from Indiana and Wyatt is from Enning. Congratulations go out to the Petersons. Arla Olson took Mary Jane Doyle and Frances Poste with her to attend the Peterson open house last Friday. Birthdays come and go — Wall’s 105th went by quickly. It was a hot one — think the temperature matched the number of birthdays. The Lutheran Church basement with their homemade ice cream was a popular place after the parade. The Lions left their tables set up after their lunch and it seemed to work better for the Badlands Alumni program — easier to see who was in attendance. Could hear the rodeo announcer so knew that was going on and, also, the band music both evening of Friday and Saturday. Barb Croell of Sundance, came Friday night to visit her parents, Merlin and Mary Jane Doyle, and to take in the Wall Celebration. Dan and Donna Badger of Las Vegas, were here for the Alumni program. Afterward, the Poppes had them, Pat Deering and the Doyles at their home for a time of reminiscing. Megan Lurz Rislov was home with her children for the celebration from Wellington, Colo. Mike and Cheryl Jedlicka came from Sioux Falls for the weekend, staying with Donna. David Jedlicka came down from Rapid City on Saturday evening to visit them. Laine Halversen of Madison, was here over the weekend, staying with her parents, Lyle and Viola Williams. Barry Poste and his daughter Elizabeth arrived Friday evening from Littleton, Colo. for Wall’s birthday celebration. We joined Mark, Darlene and Kristina Poste (Amanda was at Sheridan with friends camping) on Saturday evening to eat out. Michelle Lamphere and a friend were late getting to Wall so missed the parade but ate lunch and went back to Rapid City. Other relatives here for the celebration wer Jim and Leila Joyce, Custer; Virginia Poste, Casper; Jim and Linda Peterson, Union Center, and their daughter Elida and her children from Indiana. Earlier, Kurth and Sherry DeLand had been in Wall but could not stay for the celebration as they were to attend a wedding in Lincoln, Neb, that same day. We extend our sympathy to the family of Bonnie (Johnson) Kjerstad of Rapid City, who passed away recently. Our condolences, also, to the family of Mike Chapell. He died on July 8th; memorial services were held July 13th. The National High School Rodeo is going on at Rock Springs, Wyo. It started July 15th, going through the 21st. We wish “Good Luck” to those contestants from Wall - Elsie Fortune, Mazee Pauley and Trey Richter. Congratulations for getting this far! A special voting was held last

Tuesday for Wall’s Ambulance Service if you wished to support it or not. The “yes” votes outnumbered the “no” votes by a large percentage, so the service continues. Congratulations to Janis Bush, who celebrated her birthday on July 11th. Birthday cake was served at Prairie Village. Congratulations, also, to Chuck and Bonnie Deutscher on their 40th anniversary. They celebrated on July 7th.

Helen Slovek was here from the Philip Nursing home for the weekend. She and Yvonne were houseguests. Bev Dartt dropped by on Sunday evening. Our extreme heat continues with little or no rain. Harvesting is still going on and conditions are good for that. Feel sorry for those in construction work or any who have to be out in this heat. Otherwise, things are turning brown and drying up. Pray for rain. PS: Monday night we got a few showers. People forget how fast your did a job, but they remember well how well you did it.” ~Anonymous nace installing party. More company coming up for Dick and Gaye — we'll have that later. Jamy Williams and Hazel Kalkbrenner had a good time Saturday (the 14th). They were the fortunate lottery "selectees" (or Jamy was and shared) for the Antique Roadshow's visit to Raid City. I'm sure they will be most happy to answer questions you may have. Faye Bryan had a Sunday morning visitor for coffee and doughnuts. Vickie Bryan stopped by. I didn't ask if Vickie brought the doughnuts or Faye made them. A good visit with a long time friend and niece by marriage (from Platte, SD) is always enjoyed, doughnuts just enhance the conversation. We really appreciate Sparky for
Page 4
looking so handsome and so prepared for your very important job. Sparky hasn't missed but one parade in the years that he and the fella astride with the big grin have been coming! You both look great and thanks Freddie for being so faithful. A surprise at the talent show, a visitor staying at the campground spoke of miracles — we saw a miracle right in Wasta on the 4th of July Anna Lee Humphrey has recovered enough so she could come to the parade and be with family through the day. For this day, Monday, a little miracle/blessing was the soft cool air and the busy bird sound of morning at 5:00 a.m. Happy Trails!

Lawrence Burke became a grandpa again after a 20 year dry spell. His son Shannon and his wife were blessed with a healthy little girl, Ava Grace on July 12th. They live in Utah.

Lawrence Burke had some company during the week. Clyde and Chase Arneson were visitors on Friday morning and Edgar Simon stopped by to visit on Friday also. Saturday evening brought Jim and Myrna Smith by to drop off a machine for Lawrence to try in the hope it would help his back pain. Sounds like an automated masseuse. We hope it helps Lawrence. Freddie Ferguson had a very busy Saturday. He started out delivering mail then went on to Wall for the celebration. While there, he visited with some old Wasta High School alumni, Virginia Ferguson, Joan Deering and Larry Collier. Still looking to party, he then traveled on to the Pat Trask’s for their annual Ronald Reagan party. You’re just getting younger Fred! Many area residents attended the graveside services for Lavina Glade at the Elm Springs Cemetery on Thursday. Our sympathy goes out to the family.

It really was controlled chaos, as they went thru about 6000 people that day. It turned out that Peggy actually did have a treasure, much to her delight. Afterwards, they went out for a nice lunch, then dropped by Brad Bookbinder’s house to check out the latest remodels. I heard a rumor that there just might be some rain in the next couple of days….let’s keep our fingers crossed!

Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by Lloyd & Margee Willey Someone in Wasta is having a birthday party, Sunday. Some clues — a kindergarten graduate, turning six years old has a brand new baby sister and rides the prettiest bike in town! Who else but Natalee! Happy birthday! Speaking of bicycles, Samantha Rancour has a very nice bike and rides it very well with brother, Louie, who has his own handsome Schwinn and also rides very well. They have been out with mom, Roberta and pay close attention to cars, driveways and oncoming traffic as well as neighbors who stop them in the street to say hello! The little storm on Thursday evening brought wind, small hail stones and enough rain to make the air smell fresh and cool. Tuesday, election day, gave Dorothy Bathel, Barb Crawford and yours truly an opportunity to visit with voters about Wasta history, fierce biting little insects, most fierce being chiggers! It's a long day at the Community Hall! So each of you who came in shortened the day and did your civic responsibility. Thank you. Dick and Gaye Hadlock have enjoyed visits from family. Before the 4th of July, Daughter Melody and her husband Patrick O'Neil from Davis Junction, Illinois. They were busy installing a furnace for Dick and Gaye.

Jack’s first and main interest was his children. He also loved ranching, team roping, gardening, golfing, skiing, and generally all outdoor activities with family and friends. Throughout his years in rodeo, Jack received many buckles and awards. In 2010, he participated in the Indian National Finals Rodeo. Through both ranching and rodeo, he built and cherished many lifelong friendships. Survivors include a son, Alan Brunsch of Norris; a daughter, Misty Brunsch of Norris; his mother, Lucille Brunsch of Norris; two brothers, Beryl Brunsch of Martin, and Jim Brunsch and his wife, Jill, of Buckeye, Ariz.; four sisters, Nancy Kehn of Batesland, Carol Anderson and her husband, Stanton, of Belvidere, Jane Rutherford and her husband, Mike, of Rapid City, and Cindy Coon and her husband, Rodney, of Martin; and a host of other relatives and friends.

Bonnie L. Kjerstad______________________________
Robbinsdale Elementary in 1984 where she continued teaching until this past December. She often remarked that she was doing exactly what she wanted where she wanted. Co-workers and students will always remember Bonnie as an outstanding teacher and friend. Although she was one of the most gifted of teachers, Bonnie was a very humble person. She never sought to be in the limelight, so it was actually a challenge for her to accept being voted as Robbinsdale’s Teacher of the Year in 1997. Bonnie will be remembered for her gentle, caring way. She was not only the loving mom to her own three boys; she was a “second mom” (teacher) to hundreds of children throughout her 35 years of teaching elementary school. Just as a mother would do, Bonnie loved and nurtured her students, instilling in each child not only the importance of learning, but the value of treating others with respect. She led by example. Bonnie was a mom who read to her children. Jamie, Jason, and Jeff have fond memories of being read to by their mom. Bonnie’s love of reading was contagious; giving her students the gift of going anywhere they wished, through a book. Even after reading to her students every day, Bonnie would often go home to her favorite sitting room and read in the evening. Grandchildren had a very special place in Bonnie’s heart. She especially enjoyed her time in the kitchen with her dear little granddaughter, Kylie. Whether it was baking cookies, peeling potatoes, or Kylie just watching her grandma prepare a meal, love filled the room. With Grandma and Grandpa living in the hills, Kylie also enjoyed every minute of time she, Bonnie and Dale spent outside, whether it was time at the local parks or catching butterflies with her special net. After raising three boys, having a little girl around was a special blessing. Bonnie is survived by her husband Dale Kjerstad of Hill City, three sons, Jamie Raye Kjerstad, Jason Dale Kjerstad, and Jeffrey Allen (Jessica) Kjerstad, all of Rapid City, three grandchildren, Kylie, Alex, and Ambrossa; her father, Arnold Johnson of Philip; one brother, Jim (Jean) Johnson of Quinn; three nieces, Jana (Craig) Bielmaier, Wall, Jackie (Thor) Roseth, Philip, and Jennifer Johnson, Rapid City; great-nieces and nephews, Ryan, Jocelyn, and Kinsey Bielmaier, and Royce Roseth. Funeral services were held Wednesday, July 18, 2012 at Calvary Lutheran Church in Rapid City, with Pastor Dwight Stensgaard officiating. Interment will follow at Hill City Cemetery. A memorial has been established. An online guestbook is available at www.kirkfuneralhome.com.
Amy J. Barber, 92, of Rapid City, passed away on Wednesday, July 11, 2012 at a Rapid City nursing home. On July 14, 1919, Amy J. Erickson was born to parents, Joseph and Emma Erickson in Everett, Washington. Amy’s father was a carpenter by trade, and shortly after her birth, they moved to Oakland, CA, where Joseph provided a good living for his family with his considerable skill in carpentry. Amy’s older brother, Rudy, joined the Navy when Amy was yet preschool age and she experienced being raised as an only child for most of the time she lived with her parents. Following high school graduation, Amy enrolled at UC Berkley. She graduated with a BS in Home Economics and a Minor in Music. Then she began working at a Christian Center near her home. While working there she met Edgar Barber. Edgar was working for Standard Oil in Richmond, CA. Following their marriage in 1940, they returned to the Lakeside Community, honoring a request from Edgar’s father, Fred Barber, to take over the ranching duties. One cannot begin to imagine what thoughts Amy had as she experienced this extreme change—from concrete streets and sidewalks in a big city, to ranch living with only a
Good Neighbor Award in 1989. In 2002 she became a resident of Westhills Village. She often said “this is a beautiful place to be, it is comfortable here.” She is survived by two daughters, Susan (Gary) Reed and Beverly (Gary) Outtrim, both of Rapid City; one son, Paul (Pat) Barber of Rapid City; a daughter-in-law, Linda Barber Kooiker of Sioux Falls; eight grandchildren, and 15 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband Edgar (1983) and youngest son, Roger in 2002. Memorial Services will be at 10 am on Saturday, July 21, 2012 at the First Baptist Church in Rapid City, with Rev. Chuck Landon officiating. In lieu of flowers, memorials can be directed to First Baptist of Rapid City, and Camp Judson of Keystone.

by Cornelius R. Stam How much, I wonder, do the Christian parents among our readers show their children their love for the Word, and for Christ, and for the souls for whom He died? For many years I worked with my father, first fulltime, then part-time, as a city missionary in Paterson, N.J. All during these first years dad and I walked to work together each morning -- a little over a mile. Do you know how we invariably occupied ourselves on the way? By quoting Scripture passages on some particular subject. One morning we would quote as many passages as we could on the deity of Christ, another on His death or resurrection; others on His love, power, grace, or other attributes and characteristics. Sometimes, for days or weeks on end dad would use these morning walks to ply me with questions such as: "What Scriptures would you use to deal with a blaspheming unbeliever?" or "a self-righteous person" or "one who rejects Christ on intellectual grounds?" In this way we covered "miles and miles" of Scripture, as it were, and this in addition to Scripture reading before every meal at home, and again before we retired for the night. And all this again in addition to the oral and written Bible teaching of many of the great Bible expositors of that day, whose teachings we studied with deepest interest. What a precious heritage! We wish that more of our Christian young people today were as well off. Parents: it's strictly up to you. What are your priorities? What are you willing to pay -- in terms of pleasure, ease or financial "success"? Do you set an example to your children -and others -- by really putting God first?
Walter Van Tassel_______________________________
Ranch on the original homestead, which raised registered Black Angus cattle, certified seed, farming and custom grain cleaning. Over the years, Walter worked hard to improve the quality of seed produced by Golden Willow Seeds. During this time period, Walter was recognized with several awards, including the 1991 South Dakota Certified Seed Grower of the year. In 1995, Walter and Joann were invited to participate as ambassadors for People to People mission and traveled to China. They also made trips to various locations in the United States and to Mexico. It was during this period that Walter got to meet and shake hands with former president, Jimmy Carter. All who knew Walter had no doubt of his honesty and work ethic. Seldom was work being done that he was not involved in. He enjoyed talking with people who came to visit or have grain cleaned. If you were around him for any amount of time, you got the benefit of his story telling and his ever-present big smile and a sparkle in his eyes. He also enjoyed working on all machinery, from the simplest to the most complex, and could get just about anything back up and running. Unfortunately, he never got around to building his “flying machine” but got to fly in an airplane with son Jim and finally got to ride in a helicopter last summer. One of his favorite pastimes was fishing. He always enjoyed hunting, playing the violin and accordion, and tinkering. Grateful for having shared his life are his wife of 59 years, Joann Van Tassel; four children, Steven Van Tassel (Susan) of Midland, Sandra Heaton (Dennis) of Midland, Linda Clavel (Ted) of Mankato, Minn., and James Van Tassel (Brenda) of Midland; eight grandchildren, Terri (Heaton) Staben, Gina (Heaton) Steinlicht, Jesse Heaton, Brady Clavel, Krista (Clavel) Brown, Michelle Van Tassel, LaRae Van Tassel and Ryan Van Tassel; five great-grandchildren Michael Steinlicht, Megan Steinlicht, Erika Steinlicht, Leah Staben and Zoe Staben; a halfbrother, Donald VanTassel of Ottumwa, Iowa; a half-sister, Eunice Valentine (Phil) of Ottumwa, Iowa; a special aunt, Fern Konst; and a special uncle, William “Billy” Lee. Walter was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Ruth (Caster) Van Tassel; a half-brother, Vern Van Tassel; and his maternal grandparents, William and Pearl Lee. Funeral services were held Monday, July 16, at the American Legion Hall in Philip, with Pastor Kathy Chesney officiating. Music was provided by Barb Bowen, pianist, and Chuck and RuthAnn Carstensen, vocalists. Ushers were Reuben Vollmer and Mickey Daly. Pallbearers were Mark Foland, Glen Hostutler, Tony Willoughby, Ed Heeb, Dean Heeb and Vincent Schofield.Honorary pallbearers were his “birthday buddies,” Vern and Carrol Foland, Lawrence and Ronda Schofield, all of his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Interment was at the Masonic Cemetery in Philip. A memorial has been established to the Midland Volunteer Fire Department and the Midland Ambulance. Arrangements were with the Rush Funeral Home of Philip. His online guestbook is available at www.rushfuneralhome.com
Walter Van Tassel, age 88 of Midland, died Thursday, July 12, 2012, at the Hans P. Peterson Memorial Hospital in Philip. Walter Harlan Van Tassel was born February 16, 1924, in Ottumwa, Iowa, to Walter E. and Ruth Van Tassel. Walter (“Junior” to many) moved to the Midland area in 1929 where he lived with his grandparents, William and Pearl Lee, on the 1912 homestead ranch north of Ottumwa and was raised like brothers and sister with his aunt, Fern (Lee) Konst, and his uncle, Bill Lee. Walter was educated at the Mattison Country School where he graduated the eighth grade. Walter continued to farm and ranch with the Lees and became very mechanically inclined, working on the farm equipment, keeping it moving during the war years (baling wire and a good set of pliers will fix anything). In 1951, a custom farming crew from Nebraska made its way into the Ottumwa (S.D.) area. Joann Walker, who was driving truck for her parents, was invited to a birthday party for Bill Lee, where she met Walter. There were several trips to Nebraska over the next year that culminated in their marriage in 1952. Walter continued to work the ranch with the Lee’s and started his family. Walter and Bill Lee established the Golden Willow

Wall B baseball team wins New recruitment program Kris Paulson tournament
Health facilities in rural areas of South Dakota have gained a new tool to help recruit nurses, pharmacists, physical therapists and other health professionals, Gov. Dennis Daugaard said recently. The Rural Healthcare Facility Recruitment Assistance Program pays a $10,000 incentive to eligible health professionals who complete three-year service commitments in communities up to 10,000 people. The program is part of the Governor’s South Dakota Workforce Initiative 2012 legislative package. It replaces a previous healthcare professional recruitment assistance program, doubling the incentive payment and limiting participation to communities smaller than 10,000 people. “Health professionals in South Dakota are concentrated in our most populous areas, and it can be a challenge for rural hospitals, clinics and other facilities to recruit them,” Gov. Daugaard said. “I’m pleased to offer rural facilities this support to help recruit the medical professionals that are needed.” The $10,000 incentive payment is split between the state and the employing facility, with facilities in smaller communities paying a smaller share. The state covers 75 percent of the total for communities up to 2,500 people and 50 percent for those larger than 2,500 people. Health professionals eligible to participate in the program include dietitians, nutritionists, nurses, occupational therapists, physical therapists, paramedics, pharmacists, respiratory therapists, certi-

fied medical laboratory professionals, and radiologic technologists. Applications must be submitted by the employing health facility. The application period opened July 1. Application forms and additional information can be found on the South Dakota Department of Health website at ruralhealth.sd.gov Sustaining essential healthcare services in rural and underserved areas is a priority goal of the Health 2020 initiative in the state Department of Health. South Dakota Workforce Initiatives (SD WINS) is Gov. Daugaard’s 20-point plan to address short and long-term needs for professional and skilled workers in the state through a collaborative effort of business, education, health, and labor leaders.
Wall won against Kadoka 4-0 advancing to the Kris Paulson championship game in Philip on Saturday, June 30. Wall played Murdo in a very exciting championship game.

The team held off Murdo at the top of the extra inning allowing them to score the winning run at the bottom to win the championship 6-5. What a game! Pictured front row from left to right ...

Enter state fair beef cook-off: entries due August 1
South Dakota is known for its good cooks and great beef—and the 2012 South Dakota State Fair Beef Cook-Off is the opportunity to put a spotlight on the state’s accomplished home cooks and greattasting, nutritious beef in a friendly, fun annual event. “If you’re one of our state’s good amateur cooks armed with a great beef recipe, it’s time to enter the State Fair Beef Cook-Off,” says Karla Pazour, chair of the event. “We’d love anyone who enjoys cooking to participate,” says Pazour. “The State Fair is a true South Dakota affair with competition in everything from horticulture to livestock breeds.” The Beef Cook-Off is one more friendly competition featuring grills, skillets and beef. Entries and recipes are due August 1, 2012 for the State Fair Beef Cook-Off to be held Saturday, September 1 at the South Dakota State Fair in Huron. The contest is open to non-professional South Dakota residents in either the youth division (10-18 years) or adult division (19 and older). Beef recipes submitted must feature a main meal entrée appropriate for entertaining or special occasion meals. Judging is based on taste, appearance, originality, nutrition and ease of preparation. The winner of the youth division will receive a $250 cash prize, while the adult division winner will take home $500 in cash. Thanks to the Beef Check-off dollar, there will be $1,500 in cash prizes awarded. Pazour says, “Many people have fond memories of their favorite meals on vacation or at trend-setting restaurants.” This year's cooking theme “DESTINATION: DINNER” challenges the cook to replicate recipes that are representative of specific locations—think Bourbon Street Steak, Lone Star Salad, Beef Burgundy, KoreanStyle Ribs, explains Pazour. Beef's versatility makes it a natural for various ethnic creations. She says, “Sometimes you can escape from life's ordinary by simply creating an extraordinary beef meal!” Individuals selected to compete will actually prepare their beef entrée in a public area during the Beef Cook-Off, allowing participants to interact with state fair attendees. Judges are kept in a secluded location and recipes are judged completely on the finished product, not on cooking procedures. Hosted by the South Dakota CattleWomen and funded by the SD Beef Industry Council through the Beef Check-off, the State Fair Beef Cook-Off is an excellent way, says Pazour, to educate consumers on the 29 lean cuts of beef along with beef ’s versatility, ease of preparation and excellent taste. For more information and to print an entry form for the State Fair Beef Cook-Off, go to www.sdbeef.org or www.sdstatefair.com. Entry forms and recipes must be submitted by August 1 on the www.sdbeef.org website or to Karla Pazour, SD Beef Cook-Off, 25725 350th Ave., Pukwana, SD 57370. Finalists will be selected and notified by August 17. Any additional questions about the contest can be directed to Pazour at (605) 8944490.
Rule change would delay implementation of new standards for teaching
The South Dakota Board of Education has approved an administrative rule change that would delay a requirement that school districts evaluate teachers based on the standards for teaching approved by the board a year ago. The delay will give districts until the 2014-2015 school year to align their evaluation instruments to the new standards for teaching. “We are asking for this change due to requests from school leaders,” said Secretary of Education Melody Schopp. “This change will clarify for all those involved that teacher evaluation may be based on existing local standards until the 2014-2015 school year, at which point it must be based on the new standards. The extra time can be used to align evaluation instruments and gain familiarity with the new standards.” During the 2010 legislative session, lawmakers tasked the Department of Education with establishing standards for teaching in South Dakota. A work group consisting of teachers, education leaders and experts from around the state studied the issue and recommended the Charlotte Danielson Framework for Teaching. The Framework for Teaching consists of four domains broken into 22 indicators of good teaching.

The Looking Glass of Time
80 years ago… The crowd which began to surge the street Saturday afternoon continued almost ceaseless until late Sunday. Only for a brief spell early Sunday morning was the town partially quiet. The weather was ideal for the celebration and the events moved along like clockwork. The large portion of the crowd Saturday afternoon drifted out to the ball park followed by some real bucking exhibitions, a game of kittenball, foot races, suit case races, boxing bouts, a free dance in the school gymnasium, school band performance and ending with a barbecue and ball game on Sunday. Charlie McDonald, county commissioner, and owner of a ranch northwest of Wall, brought in some heads of wheat that measured five inches in length and contain large, plump kernels. He believes that the 100-acre plot from which they were taken will average not less than 25 bushels to the acre. Other grain in the same neighborhood is correspondingly good, he said. At the baseball game Sunday, two cars suffered broken windows from batted balls — Harold Welch’s and Henry Johnson’s. Cars completely surrounded the field. 70 years ago… An attempt to break-in at the Wall Drug Store was discovered the morning following the Tenth of July. Two panes of glass at the rear of the store were smashed and the bars on the inside of the windows were bent, but probably not far enough to allow anyone to squeeze through. Deputy Sheriff, H. H. Johnson was called and examined the foot prints found in the area. The tracks would indicate that the attempted break-in was made by a man. Wall’s thirty-fifth birthday was celebrated with a crowd equal in number to that of last year in spite of the fact a large number of the young folks have left for the army and defense work. The rides of Curl’s Amusements brought within two dollars the amount of revenue of a year ago, and the dance showed an increased revenue. All the folks seemed to enjoy themselves — at the hospital dedication program, the band concerts, the races and contests, and watching the various rides and carnival attractions. Chas. Strandell was given the contract to paint the three school buildings in the Ash Creek district. 60 years ago… Wall held a very entertaining birthday party, July 9 and 10, forty-five years after Wall’s first town lot sale. Everyone seemed to have had a good time. The feature event which took the efforts of a great many of Wall’s business men was the buffalo barbecue. The meat was perfect and there was plenty to go around. The carnival attractions were acclaimed the best that has ever been set up in Wall. The Legion Auxiliary and Methodist Ladies made over a hundred dollars for their organizations by selling tickets for the rides. The Wall Chamber of Commerce received $412 from the concessions. The Ruby Ramblers of Pierre played for the annual dance. The hall was crowded and the Wall club netted $175 from the dance. Deputy Sheriff Glenn Best was called down to Wall to investigate the slugging of station agent H. M. Hatton. Early yesterday morning, Hatton answered a knock on his residence door. As he opened the door, he was hit over the head with a flashlight, cutting a gash above the hair line. Hatton noticed his garage door open and the dome light of his car on. The flashlight that had been used for the slugging had been taken from his car. Two or three men working with the seismograph crews were being questioned by Best. Evelyn Clark has started the summer session at Black Hills Teachers College in Spearfish. She will teach third and fourth grades in Wall next year. Creighton Highlights: A shower Friday and an all-day rain Sunday amounted to an inch and a half which came when needed quite badly. The grain should ripen out good now except rust is showing up in it quite bad. 50 years ago… BIRTH: A boy, Luke Joseph, was born to Mr. and Mrs. Joe Crawford last Wednesday morning at the Philip hospital. He weighed 8 lbs. 5 oz. William George Hamann and Harold Lee Foell of Wall, enlisted in the U.S. Navy, July 11. They are now in San Diego, Calif. taking training at the U.S. Naval Training Center. A meeting to discuss the site and other plans for Wall’s proposed swimming pool will be held at 8 p.m. today at the REA office. Citizens of Wall and the surrounding community are urged to attend. Bert Meyer has obtained top view plans for the pool and will present them at the meeting. It is estimated that the project will cost $10,000 and will require 30 days to complete. Donations and pledges totaling $1,300 had been received at the time of the building committee’s last meeting. Another fund raising project is the sale of 500 tickets for a go-cart. One hundred fifty tickets have been sold. In addition to donations of money, many people have offered their time and equipment to help build the pool facilities. Max Hauk will be in charge of constructing the pool and building. 40 years ago… Wall, the host team, won the handicap golf tournament held Sunday at the Wall Golf Course. Wall nudged Philip and Kadoka on a pleasant golfing day, to win the average town team handicap score. Wall came in with a 37.46 average compared to a 38.58 average for Philip, and a 38.75 for Kadoka. Leading Wall to the average team handicap victory was Warren Joyce who had a net score of 32 for the nine holes. George Strandell, Roger Barber, Rick Sautter and Ross Norman, all had a net score of 33. Other scores in the winning bracket were Don Kjerstad and Butch Beach, both at 35; Bud Paulsen, 37; Jim Joyce, 38; Dayton Sebade, 39; Howard Johnson, 40; Delbert Sebade, 41; Keith Moler, 43; Ed Olmstead and Brad Estes with 45s. Mr. and Mrs. Faye O’Bryan of Quinn, announce the engagement of their daughter Sharon to Bruce Barnett of Philip. Bruce is the son of Kathryn Carpenter of Philip. Sharon is a 1971 alumni of Wall High School and has attended Mitchell Vocational Technical School. She is currently employed at Strathaven Nursing Home and Jensen’s Motor Lodge. Bruce is employed at the ranch of Faye O’Bryan. No date has been set for the wedding. The Class of 1927 of the Quinn High School celebrated their fortyanniversary Saturday fifth evening, July 15, 1972. A supper was held at the Cactus Cafe with nine of its twelve members answering roll call. One member Conrad Simonson of Indio, California was unable to attend. Two are deceased, Pat Kelly and Buster (Monroe) Handlin. The class members and their partners present were LeRoy and Violet Johnson of Quinn, Albert and Helen Hilbert of Colorado Springs, Colorado, Charles Foote of Wapata, Washington, Lynn and Bernice Brownson of Rapid City, Marguerite Willuweit and Iloe Schaffer of Denver, Colorado, Robert Kelly of Quinn, Pearl E. Peterson of Cottonwood, and Mildred Kelly of Rapid City. Around 50 relatives and friends gathered at the Emil Sieler home on Sunday for a Sieler family reunion. Among those from away were Mr. and Mrs. LeRoy Denke and family of Rapid City, Mr. and Mrs. Gary Sieler and family of Kadoka, Mr. and Mrs. Erwin Armstrong of Ann Arbor, Mich, and Mrs. Margurett Willuweit of Denver, Colo. Karen Hammerstrom and Terry Gunn were united in marriage at the Lutheran Church in Philip on Saturday, July 15. The double ring ceremony was performed by Rev. Brucklacher. Parents of the couple are Mr. and Mrs. Dale Hammerstrom of Quinn, and Mr. and Mrs. George Gunn of Wasta. Miss Karol Hammerstrom, twin sister of the bride, was maid-of-honor, and Craig Klingbile was honor attendant for the groom. Cheryl Kjerstad sang “For All We Know” accompanied by Rhonda Kjerstad on the guitar. A wedding supper was held at Jerry’s Steakhouse in Philip. The couple are living in Wasta. 30 years ago… The Wall Methodist Church was certainly not an ugly duckling before, but a recent adaptation of the church windows from plain to stained glass has transformed it to a beautiful swan, of sorts. The Methodist Church has been working on this project for about five years now, with a Memorial Committee consisting of Herma Marsden, Armista Sebade and Mavis Bryan in charge of the windows. Roy Marsden of Wall designed each of the small windows, which were in turn made by the Glass Farm of Rapid City. The large window in the front of the church was designed, made and installed by Hauser Art Glass of Winona, Minnesota. Each window is a memorial gift from a particular family or group of families. Some are memorials for deceased family members and others are gifts to the church. With only one loss in league play, the Pennington County Courant won two games last week, putting their record at 8-1. Their first game against Kitterman’s went five innings, ending with a score of 28-6. In a much closer game, the Courant defeated the Outlaws by the score of 8-3. A rash of errors in the sixth inning cost the Hairraisers a game against G&W Hot Dogs on July 12. The Hairraisers led up until the sixth inning, when they committed four errors and G&W scored seven runs. Also on July 12, the Hairraisers defeated Different strokes, 186. 20 years ago… In spite of the cool, damp, soggy weather, the Wall Celebration Days, held July 10, 11 and 12 were a big success. The Wall Volunteer Fire Department and the Wall Ambulance Crew kicked off the three big days with their annual hot dog supper, serving approximately 400 people this year; a large crowd was entertained by the band “Panama” that evening. Saturday morning was the parade; after lunch was the Alumni program and at the same time the Ranch Rodeo was being held.
