School board approves Supplemental Budget Resolution at special meeting
by Laurie Hindman The Wall School Board approved the supplemental budget resolution, audit engagement letter and contracts at their Wednesday, June 26, special board meeting. Wall School Business Manager Niki Mohr walked through the budget and each fund for the board members. Mohr explained the changes she has made to the budget and the board approved a motion to accept Supplemental Budget Resolution 12-6. Casey Peterson and Associates have scheduled the audit for the week of August 13. The cost of the audit will be $10,300 plus travel and out-of-pocket cost. The board approved the audit engagement letter. A motion to approve the minutes of June 13, board meeting, June claims, 2012-2013 classified contract for Jackie Roseth, WASP aide; 2012-2013 activity contracts for Lynn Dunker, MS Youth to Youth Advisor; Dana Ludeman, Jr. Class Co-Advisor and Joe Moore, Head MS Boys Basketball Coach and 2012-2013 teacher contracts for Stuart Kitterman, Title 1 Summer School; Rachel McConaghy, Title 1 Summer School and Susan Willis, SPED Summer School were approved. First reading of Educating Homeless Children Policy was discussed. Elementary Principal Chuck Sykora informed the board that it is required for the consolidation application from the Associated School Board. He has made a change to the wording and said there are two children in Wall considered homeless but one has been taken off of the roster. Third reading of Internet Safety Policy heard a lot of discussion. 712 Principal/Superintendent Dennis Rieckman related he has changed one line in the policy and Randall Poste will be teaching grades 7 - 12 while Kent Anderson will teach the lower grades. Board member Mary Williams is opposed to the line that Rieckman changed and voiced her opinion heavily against it. Williams is concerned that down the road the duty of teaching the policy will fall on teachers who had no input in the beginning of the program. Rieckman said, the line can be stricken but in order to receive their E-Rating for federal funding they have to establish the policy. The board approved a motion to accept the policy with the line stricken. Second reading of Bullying Policies with specifics in the new handbook was read. Second reading of Facility Use Policy with a change made to add funeral and memorial services to the policy was also read. The board approved a Sci-Fit Treadmill as surplus. Kid’s Garden Market has been started by Jeannie Sykora, Jackie Roseth, Brenda Carmichael and the WASP students reported Mohr. The produce and money they receive will be donated to the Country Cupboard, Back Pack program and to build up the garden beds and supplies explained Mohr. The board approved the WASP funds to be put in Fund 53 as of June 30. The next board meeting will be held on Thursday, July 12 at 8:00 a.m. in the school library.
Coast 2 Coast for Cancer rider stops in Wall for a rest
old horse and nine-year old dog, but she has been an outfitter who has spent nights out in the wilderness alone and accompanying others which has given her a leg-up surviving in the outdoors. Tracy accepted this new challenge with a determination that has been unstoppable. She has crossed the states of Washington, Idaho and Montana so far and now she is in South Dakota. She spent Sunday, June 24 in Wall and depending on the weather may even stay a little longer. Tracy has learned to trust her instincts when it comes to the route. She said, “A lot of variable come into play.” I have to gage the route on available water and land exactly where I am suppose to be.” She now lives in the moment-tomoment day and has to come to trust in people. She doesn’t have host families lined up for the trip but rather relies on the generosity of strangers who have become friends and supporters of her cause. Tracy noted that when she needs to move the pick-up and trailer or needs a place to hold up for the night someone comes to my rescue. On the front of her horse trailer is names of loved ones who have passed away from cancer. These names have helped fund her cause and given a sense as to why she should do this adventure. If there is a person who can accomplish making it to the east coast by September or October this woman who knows what cancer can do to humans and animals will make it with a CAN Do Spirit.

by Laurie Hindman The distance from Ocean City, Washington to Cape Henlopen State Park in Deleware is 5,000 mile. Not a bad trip to take by airplane or car but try it on a horse. That is what Tracy Delp from Washington is doing. A woman, her horse and dog have set out on this mission to bring awareness to cancer not only in humans but also in pets. Tracy Delp from Washington wants to put the CAN back into cancer, a word that changes the rest of a person’s life. Tracy came up with the idea of Coast 2 Coast for Cancer after her mom had passed away from Pancreatic Cancer in 2008 and two of her dogs also succumbed to cancer. According to her website coast2coastforcancer.webs. com “The goal is to bring everyone together for a common cause, recognizing that cancer is cancer is cancer no matter whom is diagnosed. To raise money for the treatment of people and animals alike.” Tracy began this trek with a partner on Mothers Day, May 9, 2011. Unfortunaley, things didn’t work out with her partner and she had to take time off from her journey to give them a ride back to Washington. She didn’t let this obstacle stop her. It would be harder with only herself and her 13-year

Range monitoring and research outlined
by Nancy Haigh Range monitoring and research studies were discussed with attendees at the Rangeland Days and Soils Days west of Philip June 19 and 20. South Dakota State University and National Resources Conservation Service personnel presented information and discussed the findings and applications. The adult program was held at the Cottonwood Range and Livestock Reseach Station. Mitch Faulkner, NRCS rangeland management specialist from Belle Fourche, spoke about the usefulness of monitoring rangelands. By monitoring rangeland the producer can see how his/her management practices affect vegetation and the soil. The first step is to determine your objective, Faulkner said. The objective could be increasing ground cover, changing plant species or their frequency, wildlife habitat, riparian conditions, or how livestock utilize the area. The sites should be recorded at the same time each year to keep an accurate record. The time of year would be based on a producer’s objectives. Faulkner said if they are monitoring for plant vigor, or studying plants in general, early to mid-July would be an ideal time. But if looking for the amount of forage cover then September or October would be best. Faulkner stressed the use of photos in recording the sites. He said it is easy to forget exactly how a site looked when the monitoring first started. An overall landscape picture of the site should be taken and, if desired, a closeup of the ground can be taken. He suggested when doing the ground shots, take several along a 100 foot length and place an object in the picture for scale. Notes also need to be taken each time the site is checked. In addition, data such as precipitation for the year, infestations and temperatures should be included. Janna Kincheloe and Ken Olson, both based out of Rapid City’s West River Ag Center, spoke about rumen fistulated steers which SDSU will use for grazing and nutrition research. Kincheloe, a research technician, explained that personnel will manually empty the rumen and then the steers will be sent out to graze. She explained that this will allow the researchers to remove the matter, see the availability of feeds and what plants the steers are selecting. The grasses are then returned to the rumen for digestion. Also, by removing matter from the rumen the researchers can check the microbes – bacteria, fungi, and protozoa. Kincheloe noted that each type of microbe helps break down the fibers, starch and fats in the feed and they also produce enzymes which further aid in digestion. Kincheloe said the steers will be moved to McLaughlin and placed in a pasture that has a heavy prairie dog infestation. The study will check to see if the steers will graze the fresh sprouted grasses around the prairie dog town or if they totally leave that area alone and find grazing elsewhere. Attached global positioning system units will also help track where the animals graze. Olson, a range beef specialist, and Kincheloe took the group through the cannulating process. The animals are not harmed by the process in which a veterinarian surgically installs the cannulas. The animals are closely watched until the area heals, at which time they are placed on pastures. Roger Gates, range specialist at the WRAC, took the group south into bordering pastures to review grazing efficiency and profitability of pastures. Gates noted that an ongoing stocking rate study has been conducted since 1943. The study focuses on low to high stocking levels, which then reflect excellent, food and low-fair range conditions, and how each level affects the profits on each animal. Gates said grasses in the range conditions varied due to the grazing intensity. The high intensity areas tend to buffalo grass and blue grama and other warm season grasses. The lower stock rate pastures tend toward western
Changes to open meetings laws take effect July 1
By SDNA News Service Two changes to South Dakota's open meetings laws will clarify when public meeting agendas are posted and how the public can participate in certain public meetings conducted by teleconference. The changes are among many new laws approved by the Legislature last winter that take effect July 1. Public boards that are subject to the state's open meetings law will now need to make sure their meeting agenda is posted in a place accessible to the public for at least a full 24 hours prior to the meeting. The agenda also must be posted to the public board's website if the board has an online site. The new law stems from complaints taken up by the state's Open Meetings Commission. People who had filed complaints with the OMC argued the old law did not fully explain how far in advance of a public meeting an agenda notice needed to be posted. Some argued they could not get sufficient advance notice of a public meeting because the agenda had been posted in a public building lobby not accessible other than during normal business hours. Rep. Burt Tulson of Lake Norden represents a legislative district where one of the agenda-posting complaints brought before the OMC originated. Residents in the Willow Lake School District filed a complaint regarding the posting of an agenda for a school board meeting. "I think it's important that the public can see the meeting agenda, especially when offices are closed," Tulson said. "I think this law strikes a good balance. Many (public boards) were posting agendas already." Sen. Ried Holien of Watertown also was one of key sponsors of the new law. "This law was necessary to protect public oversight of government," Holien said. "This law strengthens the people's right to know and to offer input. Without ongoing vigilance, like the kind this law provides, any level of government could begin to, whether on purpose or by accident, operate in secret." Holien agreed that the new law should not be too burdensome for public boards. "This was a concern of mine when drafting this legislation," Holien said. "While we wanted to protect the public's right to know, we also did not want to make government less responsive or more bureaucratic. Therefore, we made compliance as easy and flexible as possible. I do not see any difficulty in complying with this law." A second change to the open meetings laws requires public boards conducting meetings by teleconference to allow the public to listen by phone or the Internet in certain circumstances. If less than a quorum of a public board is present at its designated meeting location, then arrangements must be made for the public to listen by telephone or the Internet from anywhere. Under the old law, the public would need to go to the public board's main office if it wanted to participate in the board's teleconference meeting. Sen. Al Novstrup of Aberdeen sponsored the teleconference legislation. A frequent critic of the administration of the James River Water District, Novstrup said he became increasingly frustrated when he would have to drive from his home in Aberdeen to the district's office in Huron if he wanted to listen to a district board's teleconference meeting. "It wasn't that the meeting wasn't open, it wasn't available at a price you could afford," Novstrup said, citing instances where members of the public may drive 200 miles in order to listen to a public meeting that may last only 10 minutes. Novstrup said the change will affect state boards and commissions more than local government boards. State boards are more frequent users of teleconference meetings, often because the board members are from various locations across the state.

wheat grass and other cool season grasses. Focusing on the study between the years 1969 to 2002, the net income on range in excellent condition, income averaged $9.31 per acres, good condition at $11.86 and low-fair at $11.18. Gates said that the college has always promoted the excellent range conditions, but most producers utilize the good or low-fair, because they stock the area in high quantities which are more profitable to him. In those same groups the average daily weight gain for the groups reflected those animals on the excellent range condition pasture gained an average of 1.61 pounds per acre; good were at 1.69 and low-fair at 1.56. The “Long-Term Production and Profitability From Grazing Cattle in the Northern Mixed Grass Prairie” report of the study stated, “Over the 34-year period of the study, real profit ... steadily increased ... for the low-fair and good treatments while it remained basically level for the excellent treatment.

Area News
Letter to the Editor
It is not very often that a person is fortunate enough to work on a project as important to a community as the Wall Ambulance Service is to Wall and the surrounding areas. Working with the Wall City officials and staff, county officials, the ambulance personnel and residents of this area was indeed an honor. Working together we were able to achieve a very fair, affordable solution to fund and provide continued ambulance service to this area. On July 10th, the voters of Eastern Pennington County will have the opportunity to show their support to continue this very important service to Eastern Pennington County. In the case of a medical emergency, response times may literally be the difference between life and death. For the health and welfare of the residents of Eastern Pennington County, please support the continuation of the Wall Ambulance Service by voting YES on this very important issue. /s/Larry Gravatt Elm Springs

It is difficult to speculate as to the cause of these differences, but it is important to note that the profitability of the low condition pastures, which had the heaviest stocking rate, did not decline over time, it actually improved. “In our 34-year study, rangeland managed to maintain either lowfair or good range condition was equally profitable. Profit for both steadily increased over time. Excellent condition rangeland was the least profitable to maintain and profit remained stable over time. These results are consistent with generally observed rancher behavior concerning range condition decisions.” Range scientist Pat Johnson introduced a new study at the station involving native bird habitat. Johnson said the proactive study is designed to be a jump ahead of any possible bird threaten status and also to see if the use of livestock grazing can help with their habitat. Steers were placed in eight patches within the same pasture. Water is supplied in the center of the pasture so as not to be an issue. Two animals in each patch have been fitted with GPS units that record their location every 65 seconds. Personnel at the Cottonwood station monitor the height of the grasses, record found nesting sites and how they are in relation to grazing and weight gain on the steers. The study is still in its first month, but Johnson is excited about early data. Johnson said this preliminary study will be used to apply for grants so further research can be conducted. Olson discussed the high sulfate water trials that had been conducted at Cottonwood. Producers had contacted the college regarding livestock health issues which led the specialists to the problems of high sulfate concentrations in dams, especially during dry years. He stated no solution has yet been found for the problem. One thing that was found is that there seems to be a genetic disposition to the level the animals are affected by the sulfates. He noted that after drinking water with sulfates, the sulfates turn into hydrogen sulfide, a gas, in the rumen. The gas then affects brain tissue, creating polio-like symptoms and in some cases death. The change to hydrogen sulfide is caused by a bacteria, he said, so focusing on the bacteria may be an avenue. As of now there are no plans for further research regarding sulfate water.

South Dakota’s great places: Black Hills caves
Mysterious, alluring and wild, Black Hills caves have stood the test of time and provide enjoyment for today’s visitors, making them some of South Dakota’s Greatest Places. The caves found in the Black Hills are among the oldest and longest in the world and form one of the largest concentrations of cave passageways on the planet; all are limestone and boast a variety of rare formations. While most haven’t been fully explored, there are several caves throughout the area that are open for the public to experience and enjoy. Wind Cave National Park and Jewel Cave National Monument are both managed by the National Park Service, while the rest of the caves found in the Black Hills are privately owned. Jewel Cave is the second longest cave in the world and Wind Cave, boasting the world’s largest collection of boxwork formations, was the first to be designated a National Park. Black Hills residents and visitors are fortunate to have access to a variety of caves that offer their own unique geography, history and interior formations. Because of the incredible diversity amongst the caves, particularly in the physical conditions within each cave, it is important for visitors to consider their physical limitations. Some cave experiences are more strenuous than others; information about physical conditions at each cave can be found on the websites listed below. Whether you are interested in the rare and famous boxwork formations at Wind Cave National Park or the variety of crystal formations at Beautiful Wonderland Cave, you will soon understand the thrill that comes with discovery subterranean wonders. Perhaps you wish to stand where early Lakota Native Americans stood in Black Hills Caverns or visit the site of the early Sioux Indian Pageant that took place at Sitting Bull Crystal Caverns in an effort to help preserve Lakota heritage. For those wanting a good cardioworkout, the Wild Caving tour at Jewel Cave National Monument offers an extremely strenuous, once-in-a-lifetime caving experience. Rushmore Cave not only offers a crowd-pleasing cave experience, but has also recently added a 7-D Gunslinger Motion Theater and Zip Line, both of which guarantee a fun experience for hard-toplease crowds.

Next Book Club meeting Wednesday, July 25, 2012 at the Wall Community Library
Beginning July 25, the Wall Community Library will host Book Club meetings on the last Wednesday of each month. Wendy Brunnemann, librarian for the Wall Community Library, invites the community to use the library and read books you might not have considered reading, or share old favorites with a new perspective. Classics and contemporary titles will be the focus of the book group. Use of audio books and e-readers may also be available depending on the selected book for the month. On odd months a contemporary book will be selected, on even months a classic book will be selected from a list of “must reads” which is available on the Wall Community Library website (www.squidoo.com/wall-community-library) and in the Library. Discussion questions for each book will be available on the website, too. The book that will be featured for July is A Walk in the Woods by Bill Bryson. Bryson is a writer who specializes in humorous satire. He grew up in Iowa. In this book he will take us on a spontaneous adventure of hiking the Appalachian Trail.

Gov. Daugaard disappointed with U.S. Supreme Court decision, will weigh options
Gov. Dennis Daugaard expressed his dismay with the United States Supreme Court’s decision to uphold President Obama’s health law. “I am disappointed with the Court’s decision, but I am proud of the effort put forth by South Dakota and the other states involved in the lawsuit,” the Governor said. “It is up to state leaders to stand up for the rights of our citizens when we believe the federal government steps beyond the bounds of the Constitution.” As a result of the Supreme Court decision, on Jan. 1, 2014, every individual American will still be required to purchase health insurance or pay a fine, and a health insurance exchange will be required in every state. “I am still convinced that the President’s health law is bad policy and I will continue to fight to protect South Dakota citizens from its harmful effects,” Gov. Daugaard said. “I hope the next President and Congress will repeal this law after the election.” “Now that the lawsuit is behind us, it is our duty to study all the available options and make an informed decision that minimizes the damage this law could do to South Dakota’s health care and insurance industries.”

On the History of the Development of Glasses The Prairie Doc Perspective By Richard P. Holm MD    The oldest known lens was found in the ruins of Nineveh made from polished rock crystal. Aristophanes the Greek mentions in one of his plays, the use of such a lens to burn holes in parchment, while Pliny the physician used a lens to cauterize wounds. A thousand years later monks started using "reading stones", which were sliced off sections of polished quartz spheres, and sometime in the later half of the 1200s the monks put these reading stones up on their noses and called them spectacles. It is no surprise that it was in Venice, Italy where glassmaking was (and still is) an art, that convex reading or magnifying glasses were refined. About three hundred years later, concave lenses were found to help the near-sighted Pope Leo the 10th, who wore such spectacles to aid him while hunting. It took just about three hundred more years for bifocals to be invented by own Benjamin America's Franklin. It was in the mid 1800s that a protective lens was made that fit directly over the eyeball of a man who had lost his eyelid from skin cancer. This first "contact lens" protected his eye from drying out and resulting blindness. Over the next 150 years contact lenses came into commercial use and moved from blown, to ground, to molded glass, and then to a whole variety of hard then soft plastic lenses. And now the knowledge of refracting light with lenses has brought us to computer guided, surgically altering the shape of the eyeball and cornea with scalpels of laser beams. Where will we go next?

Gathered by Frances Poste Tyler Keyser and Jacki Knepper of Baldwin, Wisconsin, met Kirby Keyser at Lake Oahe to fish for walleyes in Tyler’s newly purchased boat. Joining them later was Stacy and her mom Cleo accompanied by Lenden Kjerstad. Camping was fun and the fishing was great! As a lot of you know, two businesses in Wall have changed hands recently. The Building Center is now operating with Darwin Haerer and his son Dar in charge. The Food Center will still see Troy and Gina Schulz working in the store but the Kent Jordans have bought the business. Other employees are also the same. Congratulations to the new owners and good luck in your endeavors. Loretta White returned home on the evening of June 30th after spending some time in Casper. She was helping Deanna Mitchell move. Gwen and Aby Hamilton of Casper were visitors in her parents home, Les and Kay Williams, Monday through Wednesday last week. Norman and Betty Klingbile have another great-grandchild. Malori and Chris Tiegen have a baby girl born on June 28th, Madelynn Lou. She joins an older brother Tobyn. Gail and Wanda Johnson are the grandparents. Congratulations ot the family. Frances Poste kept appointments in Rapid City on Wednesday of last week. With a few hours in between them, she spent some time visiting Evleyn Kjerstad. Evelyn’s scrabble board got some use that day. Hope the Wall Ambulance Service did well with their fundraiser on Saturday evening. I was there early so hope more attended later on. Jerry Johannesen showed where there are sleeping quarters, place to do laundry, etc. Very accommodating! Choke cherries are ripe! If you want some, get a head of the birds. Hear the harvest has started. Good luck to those involved. It is such a good feeling to have it out of the field before some catastrophe takes it. Fourth of July is upon us. For one thing certain — it will be a hot one. Just wonder how many of the fireworks displays will be canceled. Is it worth the fire danger? Be safe. We are luckier than some states that, on top of the heat, are also without power! Mark and Darlene Poste had been out to “the place” on Sunday and stopped to visit Frances on their way home. They were checking trees they had planted. Anita Peterson and Edith Paulsen went to Rapid City on Sunday, July 1st. They stopped at New Underwood at the Good Samaritan Home to see how Bernice Anderson was doing. She is a resident there now, as of last week. The Wall Art Guild features an artist at the First Interstate Bank in Wall each month. Lorna Moore was the artist for June. This month Hannah Huether’s work will be displayed.

The Looking Glass of Time
80 years ago… The Quinn Golf Association has completed its organization, and starting Sunday, June 25 all players must have in possession a membership card or pay green fees at the rate of 25 cents for two players. The Board of Directors consist of Andrew Erickson, president; Alfred Johnson and Frank Conway, Joe Chamberlain is the SecretaryTreasurer and Knute Tennyson the ground manager. On the new diamond northwest of town, Wall won a tight game with Milesville, Sunday, with a score of 11 to 10. Two new members of the Board, J. T. Haynes and John Bielmaier, and one old member, Henry Sebade won at the school election held at the school house in Wall, Tuesday. Although E. C. Smoot received more votes than Bielmaier, it is probable that the later will be declared elected since the law calls for two from the country. One hundred forty-seven cast their votes with three of their ballots thrown out. Henry Sebade received the highest number of 82 votes to his credit, E. C. Smoot, 79; J. T. Haynes, 79 and John Bielmaier, 60. Wall lost their Sunday’s game to the top-notcher of the West River League, Murdo. Wall put up a stiff fight but on account mostly of errors they were unable to come out winners. The final count was 7 to 3.    70 years ago… Hail did thousands of dollars of damage to the crops at spotted places throughout the best farming areas north of Wall during the night of June 19. Winter wheat and rye suffered the greatest damage. Foster’s, Campbell’s, Naescher’s, Mill’s, Cihak’s, John Bielmaier’s, Osborne Kitterman’s, Albert Winkowitsch’s, Anton Harnisch and Eggis Melrose were some of the spots where much damage was done. Heavy rains accompanied the hail and in a field of heavy winter wheat of Oscar Mill’s, the wind with this down pour made the field look as though it had been trampled over by an army of soldiers and tanks. Sun and dry weather has made this field look much healthier. In the town of Wall, itself, only a small shower and no hail was recorded. Ward Schwenk’s car, a 1941 Ford Coupe, which was stolen June 10, was towed into Philip, Sunday afternoon, after having been found and identified near Arvada, Wyoming, 470 miles from Kadoka where it was taken by a 15-year old youth who escaped from the state reformatory in Plankinton, where he was serving time for previous car thefts. Leonel Jensen is town clerk again, but only temporarily, he says. Incumbent Jensen and Elmer Klingbile were candidates for the position at the town election in April, but the vote was a tie. A recount was made, and the election was decided in Klingbile’s favor, who took office. But last week he resigned to go to the west coast, and the town board at a special meeting appointed Jensen to fill the vacancy. Jensen, who held the post for many years prior to his defeat, said he will serve until the new filtration plant is in operation.    60 years ago… The Wall-Quinn ball team came through Sunday with a seventh-inning rally to down Midland, 10-6. The Wall-Quinn ball club was given a shellacking Monday night when it played Philip to settle a three-way tie for first place in the first half of the Badlands League season. The score was Philip 19, Wall-Quinn 4. Philip played Kadoka Tuesday night to pick the winner of the league. The new Wall Drug Store addition appears to be very popular with the tourists. It is being operated like a bazaar. Calling out, “get your foot-long hot dogs here” was a little too successful the first part of the week as the hot dog stand ran out of supplies early each day.    50 years ago… Creighton News: Thursday evening, a severe hail and wind storm hit Duhammel Flat and went southeast ward doing considerable damage to crops and buildings at several farms — King Rhiley, Selmar Johnson, Erhard and Helmuth Denke, the Gabriel brothers and Ed Strandell. Raymond Knutson paid a call to the VanVleck Lumber yard with a load of broken window panes and screens. Thursday’s hail storm took all his screens and windows on the west side of his house, the former Bill Dale place. Hail did some crop damage for Henry H. Denke and King Rhiley. this same storm hit southwest of Wall flattening some crops for the Deutschers and Taltys. Wall’s annual Tenth of July celebration is all set for this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, July 7 and 8. The principal attraction will be the carnival supplied by the Curl Amusement Company and the afternoon rodeo. The regular celebration dance will be held Saturday night at the Legion Hall and the square dance will be held the night of July 8. A group of folks interested in a swimming pool in Wall met Friday evening at the W.R.E.A. and organized choosing G. W. Shelton and Mr. James McHan as co-chairmen. Other officers elected were Mrs. Joyce Stanley, secretary; Robert Marsden, treasurer; with Bert Meyer, Max Hauk, Bryce Kennedy and Leonel Jensen completing the executive committee. A great deal of interest was created
Wasta Wanderings
Submitted by Lloyd & Margee Willey Kind of a busy week in Wasta. Mary Lewis and Faye Bryan were seen a lot in the park. By the look of the park, they were working! It does look so nice. Thank you all who put in their time there. Great-grandson, Skyler Patterson and his mother Krystina arrived Wednesday, the 27th of June, for some time before and during the family reunion held at the Old Hotel at Wasta. We all get ready for Wasta’s July 4th Celebration. Relatives are pleased to come enjoy Wasta and although this is a small group, IT IS SO GOOD TO BE WITH FAMILY. Grenstiner girls did have a great time at Storm Mountain Summer Camp. By this time next week we we’ll be saying thanks to all who participated in Wasta’s July 4th, and we really appreciate Dorothy Shearer for her work in pulling together the talent show. We received word that Marilyn Keyser is having a rough time of it with her cancer battle. Keep her in your thoughts and prayers. The last visit with Anna Lee Humphrey was a good one because she was feeling “up” and looking forward to coming to Wasta for the “doings”. We were sad to hear that Tuff E. Nuff died June 29th. A great dog who was just fun to be around! Barb Crawford and Jerry Schell were owned by Tuff since February, 2000. Maybe the thing about Tuff that was endearing is he seemed to like and be happy to see everyone. South Dakota - kind of feast or famine. Last year it seemed there weren’t enough hours to get all the hay put up. This year? Well, the winter was warm. The morning sun about 5:00 a.m. was an amazing ball of deep red orange in the sky. Incredible! Wasta received a little rain. Jerry Schell said half inch Thursday (?) evening. Well, maybe Saturday evening. It’s pretty pathetic when you can’t remember what day it rained in a time of drought, or how to spell it (drought, drought?) Happy Trails!

FULNESS OF JOy
by Cornelius R. Stam About 3,000 years ago David wrote in Psalm 16:11: "...In Thy presence is fulness of joy...." He was right, for there is no greater joy than personal fellowship with God. Yet David could not know the fulness of joy now spoken of in Paul's epistles, for he did not know Christ, who later came into the world as God, manifested in the flesh, to die for our sins. He did not know that Christ would make full satisfaction for sin and be raised from the dead to confirm our justification. Nor did David know that believers would be given Christ's resurrection life, and a position, and "all spiritual blessings IN THE HEAVENLIES in Christ" (Eph.2:4-6; 1:3). When Paul wrote that God has called believers "unto the fellowship of His Son", he referred to a spiritual, heavenly fellowship, far more intimate and precious than any previously enjoyed by mortal man. This fellowship is to be enjoyed by faith, but it is faith based on fact, the fact that Christ indeed died our death and rose again from the dead that we might partake of His life and enjoy a position at God's right hand in Christ. This is why the Apostle Paul urges believers of this dispensation of grace to "seek those things which are above, where Christ sitteth on the right hand of God" (Col.3:1). Peter and John both came to know much of this fellowship through Paul, who was sent to Jerusalem "by revelation" to make known to the leaders there "THAT GOSPEL WHICH I PREACH AMONG THE GENTILES" (See Galatians 2:2-9; II Peter 3:15-18). This is why John writes in I John 1:3,4: "Truly our fellowship is with the Father, and with His Son, Jesus Christ. And these things write we unto you, THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE FULL".

Prairie dog control programs available
GFP Wildlife Damage Program Administrator Keith Fisk. “To be eligible for assistance, landowners must have prairie dog encroachment within one mile of public land and have at least 20 acres of prairie dog colonies.” Additionally, landowners must call in and inform GFP that they have unwanted prairie dogs before August 15. “GFP provides assistance to many landowners across western South Dakota,” said Fisk. “This deadline allows GFP sufficient time to coordinate the logistics of the prairie dog control program.” Landowners with prairie dog encroachment from public land should contact GFP at 605-7735913 to request control. GFP field staff will coordinate the control of the encroachment colony on the private land this fall. All requests for prairie dog control must be received by the August 15 deadline. Landowners that are experiencing encroachment from adjoining private land need to contact the Department of Agriculture. If the colony is encroaching from private land, a signed written complaint must be made. There are two methods to file a complaint, the first option is for the effected landowner to sign a letter of complaint and mail it to the local County Weed and Pest Board. The second method requires a formal complaint (available by calling 1-800-228-5254 or on the Department of Agriculture website at http://sdda.sd.gov/Ag_Services/Pla n t Protection/Weed%20and%20Pest) and sent to the S.D. Department of Agriculture and a copy to the landowner with the invading colony. The mailing address for the Department of Agriculture is 523 E. Capitol Ave., Pierre, SD 57501. Notices of encroachment may be sent in throughout the year. The South Dakota Prairie Dog Management Plan may be seen by v i s i t i n g http://gfp.sd.gov/wildlife/docs/prair iedog-management-plan.pdf or by calling Game, Fish and Parks at 605-773-3387.
Lost on the Dakota Prairie
Officials of the South Dakota Departments of Game, Fish and Parks and Agriculture are reminding South Dakota ranchers and producers to contact GFP or Agriculture if they have unwanted prairie dogs. The state’s prairie dog control program is cooperatively funded
by GFP and Agriculture. GFP manages encroachment issues stemming from adjacent public lands, while the Agriculture manages complaints between private landowners. “GFP will control prairie dogs that have encroached private land from adjacent public land,” said
South Dakota State Medical Association optimistic regarding supreme court ruling
June 28, 2012 -"The health reform law upheld by the Supreme Court is a decision that protects many important improvements in the health care system," said SDSMA President Robert L. Allison, MD, an internist in Pierre. "The SDSMA supports ending coverage denials due to pre-existing conditions and lifetime caps on insurance, and allowing the 2.5 million young adults up to age 26 who gained coverage under the law to stay on their parents' health insurance policies. The expanded health care coverage upheld by the Supreme Court will allow patients to see their doctors earlier rather than waiting for treatment until they are sicker and care is more expensive. The decision upholds funding for important research on the effectiveness of drugs and treatments and protects expanded coverage for prevention and wellness care, which has already benefited about 54 million Americans." "The health reform law simplifies administrative burdens, including streamlining insurance claims, so physicians and their staff can spend more time with patients and less time on paperwork. It protects those in the Medicare 'donut hole,' including the 5.1 million Medicare patients who saved significantly on prescription drugs in 2010 and 2011. These important changes have been made while maintaining our American system with both private and public insurers." "The Affordable Care Act (ACA) represents a step forward on the path toward meaningful health system reform. However, we do not believe it is the last step but rather only the beginning. The SDSMA remains committed to working on behalf of South Dakota's physicians and patients to ensure the law continues to be implemented in ways that support and incentivize better health outcomes and improve the nation's and state's health care system." The SDSMA serves more than 2,000 members, including physicians, members and medical students who are dedicated to the health of South Dakotans. The mission of the SDSMA is to promote the art and science of medicine, to protect and improve the health of the public and provide leadership and advocacy in the field of quality health care.

The Pathfinder was lost. A rolling sea of grass in what would become South Dakota stretched before John C. Frémont. The young lieutenant had assisted French explorer and mathematician Joseph Nicollet in surveying and mapping the land between the Mississippi and Missouri rivers in 1838, and again in 1839. In 1839, soon after the U.S. Army Corps of Topographical Engineers expedition set out from Fort Pierre Chouteau, near what is now Fort Pierre, it encountered a herd of buffalo. When the hunt ended, Frémont looked around for his fellow hunters. None were in sight. Frémont dismounted from his tired horse and walked for hour after hour. “Toward midnight I reached the breaks of the river hills at a wooded ravine and just then I saw a rocket shoot up into the sky, far away to the south. That was camp, but apparently some 15 miles distant,” Frémont wrote in his memoirs. A signal had been sent to the lost man. Frémont decided to wait for daybreak to find camp. Before going to sleep, Frémont placed his gun by his side in the direction from which the rocket had been fired. At dawn, he saddled his horse and began riding in the direction indicated by the rifle. Frémont soon saw three riders on horseback approaching at full gallop. “They did not slacken their pace until they came directly up against me, when the foremost touched
me. It was Louison Freniere (a guide accompanying the expedition.) A reward had been promised by Mr. Nicollet to the first who should touch me and Louison won it. And this was the end of my first buffalo hunt,” Frémont wrote. A historic marker about 15 miles east of Pierre, off SD Highway 34, states that in 1839 the nearby river was called Medicine Knoll River by Nicollet and Frémont, “who held a 4th of July pyrotechnic display on the Medicine Knoll 12 miles up the creek.” Frémont, 1813-1890, was an explorer, soldier and political leader. He led many surveying expeditions in what is now the western United States. He was dubbed “The Pathfinder” by the tabloidstyle newspapers of the day. Frémont’s reports touched off a wave of interest in the West. Under Frémont’s influence, American settlers in California revolted against Mexican authorities. Frémont became the first Republican candidate for president of the United States. He was married to one of the most desirable women of the time – Jessie Benton, the daughter of powerful U.S. Senator Thomas Hart Benton of Missouri. The discovery of gold on Frémont’s property in California made him rich. But if Frémont knew the peaks of glory, he also knew the valleys of despair. He was court-martialed, relieved of his command in the Civil War, and lived much of his later years in poverty.
